KEMMERER BACK AT PRINCETON

Was President of Financial Commission To Republic of Colombia

Dr. E. W. Kemmerer, professor of economics at Princeton, has returned to his work at that university after six months as president of a financial commission which was organized to straighten out economic conditions in the Republic of Colombia. This American commission, which was formed at the special request of Colombia, was instrumental in averting a financial panic which the minister of the treasury claimed to be "the most stupendous banking crisis which ever occurred in Colombia". Professor Kemmerer had under him on the commission several other noted economists, including Profesor F. R. Fairchild of Yale.
