Peace Corps experience, please

Regarding the article "Peace Corps Enters the '90s Invited Into Eastern Europe," Oct. 1: With the resignation of Peace Corps Director Paul Coverdell, a new director - as usual a person with no Peace Corps experience - has been nominated by President Bush.The director needs international and government experience as well as an understanding of the nitty-gritty demands of the job volunteers are handling. A person who is a returned Peace Corps volunteer should have that position. For years I have followed the many political appointments of the many Peace Corps directors. Please may we start a new era as we meet the challenges of the '90s and make use of the many returned Peace Corps volunteers. Muriel K. Cooke, Hanover, N.H.
