For Immediate Release

A. Heather Wood LITTLE FERRY, NJ.., April 10, 1997 -- The non-profit SETI League, Inc., leaders in a scientific Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence, has selected A. Heather Wood as its corporate secretary. A British subject residing in the US, Ms. Wood is living proof of the existence of intelligent aliens. She came on board two years ago as a volunteer administrative assistant to the non-profit science group's Executive Director, and was elected Secretary by the League's board of trustees at their annual meeting on March 22, 1997.

Heather Wood freely admits that she hasn't quite figured out what she wants to be when she grows up. She burst upon the folk music scene quite successfully in the 'Sixties, as one third of the vocal group Young Tradition (their collected works are only now being re-issued on CD), but soon discovered that playing clubs at nine pounds a gig is not the best way to support oneself in royal style. There followed a succession of careers in food service, military service, writing, publishing, music recording, computers, electronics manufacturing, and banking. She is thus eminently qualified for the multi-disciplinary aspects of SETI. She brings to The SETI League offices a wonderful sense of order, according to executive director Dr. H. Paul Shuch. "If you have ever received a copy of SearchLites, our quarterly newsletter," he quips , "it is because it was folded, stapled, and mutilated personally by Heather."

SETI scientists seek to determine through microwave and optical measurements whether humankind is alone in the universe. Since Congress terminated NASA's SETI funding in 1993, The SETI League and other scientific groups have been attempting to privatize the research. Experimenters interested in participating in the search for intelligent alien life, or citizens wishing to help support it, should email to join_at_setileague_dot_org, check the SETI League Web site at, send a fax to +1 (201) 641-1771, or contact The SETI League, Inc. membership hotline at +1 (800) TAU-SETI. Be sure to provide us with a postal address to which we will mail further information. The SETI League, Inc. is a membership-supported, non-profit [501(c)(3)], educational and scientific corporation dedicated to the electromagnetic Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence.

P.S. Tearsheets are always appreciated. Thank you.
