Bananas

Sirs:

I wish to thank you for the very flattering article you wrote about me [TIME, Nov. 7].

Personally, there is only one item I object to and that is where I advocate the players should not eat bananas. This should read "unripe bananas" as I have no objection to the fruit when it is ripe.

I have some very good friends in the banana business and I would not care to say something about their business which is not true and which is unfairly unfavorable.
