In this series of lectures dedicated to the memory of Albert D. Lasker, my distinguished predecessors have established such a high order of interest and eminence in their presentations that I am going to be hard put to match their performance alone without outside aid. In considering in detail what I should present to you I was tempted to go it alone and not appeal to the friendly bottlenose dolphin. However, it looks as though this might be unfair to those who invited me to speak here. I am sure that the invitors selected me as an agent for our dolphin friends, rather than for myself alone. If I once in a while attempt to establish my own individuality independently of the dolphins, I am sure that you will forgive me.
I would like to approach this subject from a slightly different viewpoint than that
