Yes, we did meet. John Doar considered doing
something about it. He was very busy on a case for Eastman
Kodak, which was lost, and I think that one has to say that
he at this moment is not interested in doing anything about
it. As he has a very good reputation as a lawyer and as
somebody interested in the public interest, it's too bad
that he wouldn't undertake it, but I think that just at
this moment in his career, he really can't.
How does it tie in with the attitude of Mr. Califano?
It would have worked very well. Califano is still
trying to do the best he can, but he isn't going to defeat
the tobacco industry.
The meeting was to --?
Was to interest Doar in taking on, you know, a class
Taking a major role. Yes, I see.
Have you had any more run-ins with Congressman Fountain?
No, nothing further with Fountain.
Dr. Krim has a laboratory which is now beginning
to produce some interferon, and I'm hoping that with this
additional ACS fund for the purchase of interferon, her
laboratory will get going and will produce much more, although
she's not as far along in it, by any means, as the Finnish
Red Cross laboratory is.
