FOR GENERAL HARRIS

Yesterday CBS offered WCSC-TV $125 for a filmed interview with Negro prospective cadet Foster. The offer was declined. I don't know whether management (John Rivers) or the cameraman (Tom Crenshaw) turned the offer down, but in any event the public exposure was avoided.

Very respy,
D. D. Nicholson
