Re "Her Latest Creation: a Union," Jan. 27: Because the exploitation of adjunct faculty hurts students, schools, communities and part- and full-time faculty, I hope that all of these will work together to end it. But Linda Cushing and others have shown that even without help, adjunct instructors can determine their future if they manage, despite institutional obstacles, to unite. I applaud the growing number of adjunct faculty who have done so, and I urge the rest to make organizing a priority.

"When he looked up at me, the mask came off," Cushing said of that fall day in 1998. "There was such despair and isolation and anger in his face.

Doreen Irish, UCI women's tennis coach, answered her office phone one morning last summer to a vaguely familiar voice. Uma Rao? If the voice didn't register, the name certainly did. Rao once was one of Southern California's top junior players, ranking eighth in the Southern California Section of the United States Tennis Assn. 12-and-under and 14-and-under divisions. She was that frail little girl with the power of a cannon and the stamina of a ball machine.
