A. H. Buchman of Los Angeles knows a partially blind and partially deaf woman who needs a telephone with large push-button letters and numbers and with a handset that has adjustable , amplified sound. He says many phones have one of these features, but he has not yet seen one that has both. Can you help with this "phoney" communications problem, or will Buchman never get the message?
Two readers want to be babied about a similar situation. George Flahan of Victorville is interested in finding stamped flannelette kimonos to embroider for babies. And Jeanne Wright of North Hollywood is looking for a Carter's Grow-Sleep Sac, which is a sleeper (similar to a nightgown) for babies from newborn to about 30 pounds. The sleeper has a double zipper in front and a 10-inch portion at the bottom that can be opened at the seam for growing. Can you help these readers with their growing pains, or will the bottom line be: "Baby, it's cold outside"?

Now she has learned that Abano bath oil has not been made in two years, and her supply is almost exhausted. (Another reader looking for the same product is Shoshanna at (213) 454-3649.)
