President lauded by La Guardia

Chicago, Illinois (UP) –
Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia returned to New York today after a brief invasion of the Midwest during which he announced that “President Roosevelt is going to win his second war for the American people.”

Mr. La Guardia said here last night that:

You know and I know the President is going to win this war for us. It is the second war he has won for us. He won one of the greatest wars ever waged – the war over hunger, suffering, starvation and hardship.

Mr. LaGuardia said:

When the history of this war is written by impartial men and women, it will be shown that the only man in the country who saw what was coming and did all he could within his constitutional powers to make the best of a bad situation was President Roosevelt.
