Re: GIFT POLICIES Neal D. Nixon 05 Sep 1991 14:21 UTC

At Kornhauser Health Sciences we at one time also had the policy of accepting
only gifts that were needed. For "goodwill" and PR reasons we were forced to
discontinue this policy and now accept anything and everything. Most of it
goes directly to the dumpster. Tax time and Derby time have become a nightmare
for us because every MD in the city cleans out basements and attics. In
reality almost all of the missing issues we really need are purchased
from vendors or come from MLA or USBE. I believe the policy of accepting only
what's needed is the correct one. For political reasons we cannot adopt it.
