    We at Lehigh have seen a decrease over the last 2-3yrs. in both
areas, in total dollar volume, and even though there was an increase in
the number of awards by a small amount, the dollar volume still dropped.
We expect to see another drop this coming year as well, due to the
budget cuts at Air Force and NSF's somewhat switch to other areas of
research.  We have a fiscal year of June 30.  We are looking toward
funding from the DOD/ONR areas more and more.  Hope Congress changes
it's outlook on research.
