Transcription of an Q&A by Brigadier General Daniel (Chappie) James, Jr.
The moderator, who is unnamed, opens by saying: "Ladies and gentlemen,
General James indicated that he would field your questions on the full
range of subject material, including race relations, public information,
budgeting-the whole nine yards."
The linked page is HTML, not a pdf or page image, but I suppose the
transcription is accurate.
The associated search feature of the magazine yields no more cites, but
it is a Google search of the domain, which is not always complete.
