following to say of Dr. Nesom’s
‘ From Cable-News American; ”
Dr. Nesorn, whose resignation as
director of agriculture, was an
nounced Saturday, has been asked
to consider the matter of becoming
dean of the agricultural depart
ment of the University of Porto
Rico. The retiring director will
not consider the offer, as his plans
have long been made to enter pri
vate business in the Phillippines.
Dr. Nesom said to a Cablenews-
Americun representative yesterday
that he would not discuss the na
ture of this business further than
to say that he will be connected
with the sugar industry. It is
well known, however, that there is
an increased interest in the Phil
lippine sugar industry just now
and that several large deals are
pending. It is probable that Dr.
Nesom will be associated with
some of these larg- 1 enterprises.
I am interested in America in
the Philippines,” said the doctor
yesterday. My heart is here and
I expect to make it my home.”
Asked about his present plans,

continue in charge of the bureau
