     While you all were quickly responding to my last inquiry I was 
     renewing my acquaintance with the business that parents cannot 
     inherit from child processes. The script setcm.ksh exports CATI.
     Guido's suggestion to run setcm.ksh manually as a dot script is 
     dangerously impractical in our environment. I don't own setcm.ksh 
     and don't care to seek to change it.
     The latest version of my script follows. It hangs after running 
     setcm.ksh. No doubt the fix is simple but here at the Bureau of 
     the Census we are too busy now for leisurely study of manuals.

This means that there is no environment variable called CATI when you run
line 14 -- if that was supposed to be set by

then there's something wrong with that script.  I don't know the Korn
shell, but it could be that you need to specify something in that shell to
make the environment variables "stick" after execution.  In bash, I
believe it's the "export" command.
