It is shown that a pairwise balanced design onn points in which each block is of size at least n½−c can be embedded in a projective plane of order n+i for some i≦c+2 if n is sufficiently large. Among other things this implies that if the projective plane conjecture is true, the conjecture of Erdos and Larson will not be true.
