TIAA-CREF statements for the quarter ending September 30, 1999 will 
be coming to your home address in October.  It has been suggested 
that with the coming change in the millenia you may want to hold on 
to that statement until you receive the statement for the quarter 
ending Dec. 31, 1999.  TIAA-CREF has assured us that they are ready 
for 2000 but retaining the quarterly statement may be a good back-up.
