Q:

Lasker:

Q:

You won't get the 200 million but you'll get something Bear to it?

Lasker:

Well, it wasn't as much as 200 million for training, I don't think, was it? That much? It was 200 million for all NIH, all the Institutes of Health.

Q:

Lasker:

-- for all the Institute a of Health.

Q:

For all the fellowships.

Lasker:

No, I don't think you're going to get anything close to 200 million, because while I think the Cancer Institute got some money back, I think maybe we got 36 million, 40 million, something like that. We didn't get all the money back for the other Institutes. We got quite a lot back for cancer. But then they didn't give it back to heart and all the other Institutes in the same amount that the Cancer people got theirs.

Q:
