art, partly helped by the publications, partly helped I think by television because there have been some very good television programs about artists--not nearly enough in my opinion--and partly because people have more leisure and more money and they have come to want things that are unique and special and not the same as everybody else. Isn't this true?

Q:

Yes, indeed it is.

Lasker:

Well, that's about that.

Q:

You were going to talk about the cultural center. You had not said anything about that.

Lasker:

I haven't said anything at all about it?

Q:

No, just bare eforences.

Lasker:

Well, why don't we start that next time?

Q:

And you wanted to do an outline on it anyway you said.

Lasker:

Yes, I'd like to tell about it in some detail. I can't tell the whole story of it, I've never known anything so complex. I can't really tell its complexities, but I'd like to tell some of the things that can be told.
