BUDGET REQUEST, HOUSE INCREASE AND PARTIAL APPEAL Senator MAGNUSON. The subcommittee will come to order.
This morning we begin to hear the testimony of the National Institutes of Health and Dr. Marston, the Director, is here, with his colleagues.
For the record, the budget request for 1971 is $1,542,039,000 which is $120,417,000 over comparable 1970 figures. The House has allowed an additional $92.7 million, bringing the total to $1,634,739,000.
Are those the correct figures ?
Senator MAGNUSON. The Department is here today to appeal for $30,928,000 on that $92.7 million increase.
I don't like the word “appeal.” You are going to discuss it. We are not an appeal group. This leaves the total departmental request before the Senate at $1,572,967,000.
Dr. Marston, you may proceed at this time.
FEDERAL SUPPORT OF BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH AND COMMUNICATIONS
AND HEALTH PROFESSION EDUCATION
Dr. MARSTON. Thank you, Mr. Chairman and members of the committee.
I am pleased to have the opportunity to appear before you again to testify about the goals, plans, and needs of NIH for carrying out its responsibilities for Federal support of biomedical research, for education in health professions, and for biomedical communications.
TOP LEVEL STAFF CHANGES

He has been succeeded as Director of the Bureau by Dr. Kenneth Endicott who has been Director of the National Cancer Institute since
