Abstract
Essentially what we want to do in the remain­ing time we have this afternoon is to outline for you some of the mechanisms and what we plan on doing as far as an industry-wide study for the styrene-butadiene rubber industry. As I indicated this morning, we are microfilm­ing the records of the two plants, B. F. Goodrich and Texas-U.S. Chemical, in Port Neches and we have almost completed the microfilming of these records. We want to do an indepth study of these facilities. The reason that we want to do this instead of going to the Social Security Administration as Dr. Wagoner indicated, is that we can get a very detailed occupational history through the company records that we are micro­filming from each facility to see if there is any specific area of the plant where there may be a clustering or an association with the leukemia or, for that matter, any other excess deaths that we may encounter.
