Allan, Could I recommend that Miklops Kontra, who is in the country and coming to the meeting, be substituted for Silke? He is currently very much involved with the preservation of Hungarian (and anti-Hungarian laws) outside Hungary. It would fit nicely with our endangerment program and would not require any program shuffling. I am sure he can be recruited. Just a suggestion.
