Subject: File No. SR-NASD-2003-158

Ladies and Gentlemen:

This filing includes substantial changes from the last amendment to the Code or Arbitration Procedure rewrite which will materially affect investors. It is imperative that the SEC deny the NASD's request for accelerated approval without any opportunity for real pubic comment to the new proposal.

Thank you for your consideration.
