Man of the Year


Harlow Curtice—what an astounding selection ! Just offhand, I can name a hundred likelier choices, among them Eisenhower, Khrushchev, Dulles, the Pope, Schweitzer and Sibelius. I regard your choice as a cowardly surrender to your business office, and I will never read your magazine again.

JOHN C. MOYNIHAN Andover, Mass.


Hooray for Curtice as Man of the Year. It is great to have the Curtices, the Watsons, the Fords, the Wilsons, the Eisenhowers—the doers in place of the do-gooders guiding the country.

BOB ELY Roswell, N. Mex.
