Managing Editor More Than His Brothers Keeper T looked around for a story of hope and inspiration to usher in the Christmas and New Years season And I found it Its the story of Maurice du Pont Lee 01 Wilmington Delaware who retiree not so many months ago follow ing an outstanding career as an engineer for the mighty chemical concern known as du Fonts Our Lees and mine a few weeks ago when we spent several days on the Pur due campus counseling with stu dents in their classrooms and in the places where they live We were fellow Old Masters so called Before that I had merely known about him from having read an amazing story about him in the Saturday Evening Post later reproduced in condensed form by Readers Digest In the title given to that Post article wasa tipoff to the most Important fact about this man whose forebears included the founders of the du Pont empire on one side of the house and the fa mous Lees of Virginia on the other Light Horse Harry Lee of Revolutionary days and Robert E Lee of a later era in our history were both kinsmen of his A Job for Retirement They Got Busy was the revealing title over that article in the Saturday Evening Post which was built around my newfound friend and others oJ like age and status in the Dela ware metropolis He and his com panions have dedicated their sun set years to the task of applying the sumtotal of their knowledge and experience to the advancement of small business and free enter prise in America Turned out to pasture says editorial preface to the Post article these men have found a ready market for their years of

their new labors an opportunity to knock into a cocked hat that old oftre peated assertion The little fellow doesnt have a chance anymore What gives plausibility to that poignant cry is the statistical fact that only five per cent of the new businesses being started these days survive more than two years Thats an appalling toll of failure What Mr Lee and his associ ates know going in and what they hope to make clear beyond argu ment is that this high mortality rate among infant businesses is in no sense inherent in our system of free enterprise Nor is it some thing that can be eliminated or even remedied by more laws The premise of Maurice Lee and those working at his side in this nonprofit venture is that the high death rate here referred to is due wholly tofaulty business
