Roosevelt works on political talk

Washington (UP) –
President Roosevelt has returned from his conference with Prime Minister Winston Churchill at Québec and has begun work on a political speech he will make here Saturday night, the White House disclosed today.

The speech will be broadcast by KDKA and WJAS at 9:30 p.m. ET.

White House Secretary Stephen T. Early said the President would devote most of the day to work on the speech, which will be addressed to members of the International Teamsters’ Union (AFL) at a meeting in a Washington Hotel. Mr. Roosevelt said some time ago that it would be his first political speech of the presidential campaign.
