For example, the Patent Office, which is another agency of the Department of Commerce, had, and I suppose still has, a backlog of several hundred thousand patent applications. If memory serves me correctly, the backlog at that time was way over 200,000 applications. It has long been obvious that a modern, sophisticated information collection and retrieval system for the Patent Office is a national, if not an international, necessity.

It is to the politician's rationality, if we are going to address ourselves to Congress; it is to his frame of mind; it is to his intellectual set, that we have to fashion the kind of arguments we want to make, so that he will understand it within the context of his framework.
