I spoke the other evening with a very prominent Board of Trustee member at a party that I was invited to near the ocean. He informed me that he had received the packet of information I had sent his way regarding Frangieh and that he was taking it very seriously.
And that, while he is not as active a board member as he would like, he had also received a memo from the college that essentially parroted Hess’s statement. He told me he wasn’t buying it and neither were others. He and I are talking about it again at the Reagan Centennial celebration this Saturday, but I thought I would just alert The Claremont Conservative’s readers as to what is going on behind closed doors.
Meanwhile, in light of the quickening pace of events in the Middle East and the uncertainty in Jordan, I’m told that the executive committee to the board of trustees met this week past and discussed the wisdom of Claremont McKenna's program in the Middle East.
