Sat, Sep 15, 1945: curiosity

"Wednesday night Jim Allen and I went to a meeting of the University Young Democrats club. Don't worry, Dad, we went just out of curiosity....
“The local congressman won't have any luck if he searches for 'Isaac A. Waldenstein' of Denver, Colo. and 'Minamoto Yoritomo' of Vista, Calif. who signed the petition circulated that night recommending that we break relations with Franco Spain.  It was Joker Jim Allen's idea--not mine."
