Lasker:

No, no. I've moved my office across the street. It's on the 24th floor.

Q:

When are you moving over there?

Lasker:

When I get back from Europe. I went to the wedding of Nayor Wagner and Mrs. Cerf, which was very pleasant, on the 30th of January; and I went to meetings of the Lyndon Johnson Foundation Awards Committee on energy, and we're having a great time trying to find out who's done anything outstanding in energy, because it's very hard to pick any one person. There are so many fields of energy, and to find who has made an outstanding contribution seems to be very difficult. So we're taking solar energy now and trying to find out what that is going to be about -- I mean who's made an outstanding contribution.

Q:

In terms of awards it's just as chaotic as in terms of federal policy.

Lasker:

Yes, very chaotic. We're going to have another meeting in September.

Q:

When do you get back from Europe?

Lasker:

Oh, about in the middle of September.
