What is your prognosis on that?
I think that means a big fight and it will be settled
overall in the next few months, I think. I mean, a big Congressioal-
President fight, fight of the Congres vs the President.

Yes, but actually, ad he's vetoed the HEW bill, we're working on
the '72 budget still in cancer. He hasn't let us get any money at all,
related to the '73 budget. We've been stuck.

That sounds like quite a lot. I wanted to ask you about the status

for him, and Zuckerman's report is really very --
Who asked him to do this?
Prime Minister Heath. I'd like to give you
a copy of it, it's such a poor report. Then I think although the
President was willing to go forward with it, the people in the Public
Health Service, especially Dr. Marston and Dr. Devoe, probably
said, “Oh we can't be bothered to have all these meetings, all this

if they would spend a little money on clinical trials for these
major types of cancer, they'd get a lot done very much faster.
