Much better. It makes it more understandable. The aim
and the target is better understood.
Are you currently involved at all in the ongoing effort?
No, I'm not on the council of this institute. I suppose I
could be, but it would involve going to visit a large number of
medical schools around the country, and it means a great deal of
traveling, which to me is very fatiguing. As I've been to a lot of
places, I know what the general possibilities are, and I don't
like that kind of travel. I'm perfectly willing to have other
people go and do that, evaluate which are the better places and --
-- Well, of course you have many other irons in the fire.
Yes. I'm going to go on the National Council for General
Medical Sciences, because the director of it, Fred Stone, is a
person who wants to get something done. Now, this will be such a
relief to me, as compared with Dr. Kenneth Endicott of the Cancer
Council (the Director of the Cancer Council) that it will be a joy.
What will this entail?
Well, just going to meetings, two and three day meetings,
three or four/or five times a year
