    Initials


    Coverage is accompanied by 1/4 in. wild tape (7 1/2 ips, 25 fps, 50Hz tone) of sounds identified no tape. Note that last part this tape is synched with the other coverage (2nd plenary session) sent this shipment.
    NOTE THAT THERE IS A SHOT OF A WHITE AND A BLACK GIRL WALKING ALONG TOGETHER IN THE COVERAGE SENT 15/11/71 (SHOT 5 OF ROLL 2), 'Home arrives in Salisbury, etc.'
    Regret choice of shots extremely limited because of necessity to stake out talks teams, which severely limits my movements. Wanted, for example, to show Salisbury's multi-racial university and a number of multi-racial hotels but there hasn't been time. I can shoot these after the talks are over if story is for issue afterwards. Please advise.
