Quotes from biographical sources

Washington, D.C. - The Liberian concession of the Firestone Rubber company of Akron, Ohio is attracting many of our most efficient young men. Among those who have accepted supervisory positions in connection with the development of rubber growing in West African is Mr. Charles E. Lane, who for several years had successfully managed the large and beautiful Lincoln Theater in this city. Mr. Lane sailed last Sunday from New York to visit factories in Belgium were he is expected to spend two months. From there he is expected to visit South African rubber plantations on a tour of inspection before taking up his duties in Liberia.
