FROM HISS. TO VAN DOREN -
SIR,—Richard H. Rovere writes, 'There is no record of anyone having turned down an offer to take part in a rigged production.' There is.
Orson Welles has recorded an offer of $50.000 made to him if he would appear on an American quiz show for which he would be fully briefed. He refused and for all anybody knows, others, may have done so too. —Yours faithfully, 4 Darnley Terrace. St. James's Gardens. JOHN IRWIN Kensington W II
