              Dear Doctor Leopold: 
 
              In reply to your letter of March 21, I want to point 
              out that the reason we have been so long in answer- 
              ing is that we have been discussing the possibility 
              of some of our other departments underwriting part of 
              the cost for a thoro survey.   While, as usual, they 
              are very enthusiastic about the survey, they do not 
              want to pay for it.    Since the survey would be pri- 
              marily usable at the present time for our advertising 
              men and of real secondary value to the editorial de- 
              partment, we cannot feel justified in going ahead 
              without the okay of the advertising men. 
 
              I am thinking here of the more detailed surveys, be- 
              cause there is no particular point in going into such 
              a survey, unless we do make it detailed and authorita- 
              tive. 
 
              I shall continue to bore from within, to see if I can 
              change the essential sales philosophy regarding this 
              project. 
 
              You may believe that we are very grateful to you for 
              your co-operation, and the thought you have given our 
              problems. 
 
                                                Cordially
