MEMO FROM THE PUBLISHER
Harry Phillips
January 14, 1957
Last week Assistant Publisher Dick Neale handed me the following note: "As you know, I've been living with the Hungarian and Rumanian Olympic athletes since they have been in America, and I thought that some of our readers would get the same kind of personal reward from knowing them that I have. How about running a special MEMO FROM THE PUBLISHER called 'Scouting Report on Future Americans'?

"This would give our readers an opportunity to send along to you any job and college offers which they may know of. This week the group is starting its six-week nationwide freedom tour. Many SPORTS ILLUSTRATED readers can therefore look forward to meeting these fine athletes in person very shortly."
