About College Executives

Speaking from a journalist's
viewpoint, Robert H. Jordan '43,

without looking at the driver
threw his bags into the rear of the
car and climbed in. Although his
hat was pulled down over his eyes
and his face was partially covered
by 'a muffler, Jordan noticed a

driver and John L. Lewis, presi

similarity, he dismissed it from
