Back Matter

Cover Image

At a meeting of the Bull Elephant Club in 1974, former broadcasting colleague and then Governor of California Ronald Reagan presented Congressman H. R. Gross with a shirt bearing the logo “H.R. Gross 144.” Every session, Gross introduced in Congress the eponymous H.R. 144 (cleverly named because House bills start with “H.R.,” for “House Resolution,” and a gross equals 12 dozen, or 144), a measure that proposed a general program of fiscal restraint. For more on Gross’s political career, see the article by David and Dorothy Schwieder in this issue.
