the American Cancer Society to make a contribution to the very
expensive series -- it's costing around 7 million dollars to produce
and distribute on public TV. The Cancer Society is giving them
$50,000. And I'm sure this may be a very useful and important way
of involving the average person in sensible health information
and maybe making them act on the information. You know Sesame St.?
This is to be directed to adults?
To adults, yes. First adult series that she's done.
Public television is an awfully good vehicle for that.
I should say it is. In relation to cancer, I've interested
Mrs. Haupt in financing another cancer conference on advances
in cancer management and treatment.
This in addition to the one she held last November?
Yes. This is going to be in the Waldorf this November,
and thank God we do have some advances in treatment, as I said.
I told you about the breast cancer.
This is to be an international gathering?
Well, it's a national gathering. Then, in relation to
cancer research, Mrs. Blair and I visited Duke University at Durham
to see Dr. Shingleton who's head of their cancer research center.
And Duke University's extremely cordial and their center seems
to be gathering a lot of momentum.
