Fourth-Grade Map

"The Wild Man of Hollywood Meets the Wilds of Borneo" (by Jack Mathews, Nov. 8) was both interesting and informative.

However, the cartographer for the article made one error. Jakarta (formerly Batavia), as any fifth-grade student knows, is on the island of Java, not Sumatra as the map indicates.
