Bringing up the issue of the University's labor, troubles last Spring. Leo Moran, most vehement speaker of the evening said, "Dean Landis better clean up his own back yard before going down to Washington again, and Roosevelt, if he knew the facts, would be the first to tell Landis that very thing."
