Say something about that remarkable party at Lord and Taylor's and who was back of that.

Lasker:

Mr. Brooks, the president of Lord and Taylor, was back of it. He is extremely generous minded, and I thought it was very well done.

Q:

Is this an award they give?

Lasker:

They give it once a year, yes.

Q:

They give once a year.

Lasker:

Yes.

Q:

Called the Rose Award.

Lasker:

Yes. They gave it to people like Einstein -- so similar to me! (chuckles) And Cronkite. A great mixture of people.

Q:

But only one person yearly.

Lasker:

That's right.

Q:

And it's a dinner party, isn't it?
