H. G. WELLS SEES IN CONANT 1940 PRESIDENTIAL TIMBER

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Describing President Conant as something new in his experience of Americans, "something fresh, clean, frank, and simple," H. G. Wells in the current issue of "Collier's" says that everything points to the "distinguished chemist" as presidential material.

The article, entitled "New Americans," goes on to say that President Conant "is deliberately turning from physical science to educational and administrative work." "Ever since I met him," Wells continues, "I have been asking why he is not in the running for the White House."

But he has always received the same answer: "You see, we've already had one college president in the White House-Wilson."
