Mitchell graduated from AmhctHt with high honorfl, took a job with tin; Western Klei-tric company In Chl'-ngn. assiduously studied accountancy ami law, and quickly won promotion. He entered Wall Street In the pnnii- year of 1907 as a bunk executive, Inter 'launched an Investigation linn nf liJs own, hut was induced by Frank A. Vanderllp to take hold of the National City company in 1916. Young Mitclifll proved extraordinarily forceful und effective. To use hla own phniHC, he "pumped enthusiasm" into his salesmen, built up n, wonderful Investment dlntrlhuUng machine and, In 1921, when only 44, became president of the National City bank. He has been tho acknowledged leader In this yeur's movement to keep the New York money market on an oven keel. Mitchell Is distinguished by hi« funrlcssiK'ss and his frankness. Not one of the big six worked more prodigiously than he when pandemonium broke week. loose in Wall Street last Albert K.

Ho switched to the Chase twenty-five years ago and won the presidency In 1911. Al Wiggln is highly regarded for his trained professional ability. He has always been progressive, unafraid to branch out. Long ago he earned the 'Hteern of George F. Baker, then a power behind the, Chase throne. Wiggin's bank is the second largest in America. William C. Potter, bend of the fiiiiiranly Trust, graduated from the MasHiicliiiHetts Institiito of Technology us a mining engineer and practised his profession for years. He performed very responsible mlKnlons for .the Gug- gcnheiins and attracted banking notice. 'Morgan interests induced him to switch to bunking.
