Looking Back: The Petition to Roosevelt Not To Supply England

From the April 27, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back"

1941, 75 years ago.

"Many people have already signed their names to the specially worded telegram now at the Western Union office of this city in objection to the proposal to convoy war materials across the sea to England, believing that this is the final step this country can take as a peaceful country that will lead to war.

"When the proper number of names, which cost five cents each to be affixed to  the telegram, are signed, the message will be sent to President Roosevelt in prospect of the proposed measure, believed to be in a day or two."
