     I could not find information on information on CHEROKEE NATION and
TENNESSEE VOL.  In last year's registration and introduction book, ALICE'S
DREAM is listed as having been introduced by Jim Hedgecock in 1995, but no
color description is given.  Hopefully, someone with more yearly checklists
will be able to help with these three.
