Interview with John McLaurin
QUESTION 26
INTERVIEWER:

LET ME GO BACK JUST BEFORE WE TALKED ABOUT THAT, UM, IN THAT MEETING WITH ATTORNEY GENERAL KATZENBACH, WHAT WAS IT THAT THEY WERE DISCUSSING FOR 30 MINUTES?

John McLaurin:

Uh, one, the primary thing was that the highway patrol was there and Senator Yarborough was going to order them to leave the post and Katzenbach seemed to be excited about that. He didn't want the highway patrol relieved of, of their duties there and Senator Yarborough stood up to him and did relieve ‘em since the army had taken over, and the U.S. marshals, Senator Yarborough didn't figure that the highway patrol ought to be there to help ‘em.
