The Cover: "I have sworn upon the alter of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man".
These words were spoken fy Thomas Jefferson, whose bus is featured on the LENS cover. They are inscribed on the pedestal and eloquently express the essence of the great man's creed. The bust will be placed in Thomas Jefferson hall in queens College, a monument to the found of universities and a fitting symbol to his belief in freedom of the mind.

The bust of Thomas Jefferson is the work of the famous sculptor, Attilo Piccirilli. It was commissioned by Governor Pollard for the State of Virginia. It was originally executed in 1931 out of white Carrara marble. The original is in the rotunda of the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond. The work earned its creator the Second Congressional Jeffersonian medal.

A bronze model of the bus has been presented to Queens college by the Honorable mark Eisner, chairman of the board of Higher Education from 1932-1938
