In this letter to Grace, the Chairman of the Executive Committee of the President's Private Sector Survey on Cost Controls in the Federal Government, Axelrod, Anfinsen, Nirenberg, and Gajdusek complained about several recommendations for the NIH and NIMH made in a recent report by the task force. The four scientists noted that the cuts called for under the task force's recommendations would result in the elimination of far too many positions at the NIH and would place too many constraints on the day-to-day operations of laboratories and researchers.
