ERNEST R. BREECH

'I don't notice the rain'

When Ernest Breech is not in Dearborn, Mich. presiding over the affairs of the Ford Motor Co. as its board chairman, he may usually be found on fishing water. So it was the other day when Breech, a native of the Ozarks, journeyed to Springfield, Mo. to dedicate the $400,000 school of business building he is presenting to Drury College, his alma mater. Not far away was the White River of Arkansas, home of monster fighting trout, and the temptation to tarry was just too great, even for a board chairman. Dedication attended to, off went Breech (above right) and his friend, television's Tennessee Ernie Ford (below right), for two days of fishing. The winds blew and the rains came down steadily, but nothing daunted the two men of affairs. "When I'm fishing, I don't notice rain," says Breech. The first day, using artificial lures, they got one small throw-back apiece. Then, as practical fellows, they switched to worms, took six fat ones.
