and intent it may seem to him his duty to send expeditionary forces to intercept the enemy on foreign shores.(10)

Col. Robt. McCormick told the nation by radio that Hitler could equip 10 millions to meet such an expeditionary force. We would have to have twice that number mobilized, our complete manpower. The cost he estimated at 400 billions, 1 million dead, 4 million wounded.

Lord Lothian tactfully removed himself from the American scene before the election, and British propaganda took a new trend, skilfully adjusted to the occasion. Election over, British prospects became bright in the light of the might of the Greeks fighting for the right.

"Reporting . . . was weird. Whether for reasons of propaganda or because of over-anxious sympathy ( Time, Nov. 18). Successive Greek "victories" when traced on the map, sometimes turned out to be steady Italian advances. Italians were said to be deserting in droves, drowning themselves in flooded gorges, perishing in cold and hunger, suffering from the forays of wolves." (Poor Little Red Riding Hoods)

With the Japanese withdrawing from China, Italian warships destroyed by bombs harmless against British warships, it is made to seem we must get in quick to win any glory. "Come on in, the water's fine".

Stoneman, London correspondent for Knox Chicago News, financed by Kuhn, Loeb, returns by Clipper to tell us we must put our industry on a 24-hour full war time basis, give all our resources, declare war, pay the bills. Lord Lothian is on the way back. 'The British are Coming'.(11)

Roosevelt received 54.7% of the popular vote,--but in the electoral college, he received 82%, 449 votes to Willkie's 82. A change of "less than 1%", "a shift of only 450,615 votes in ten states--ranging from 0.75% of the total vote in Wisconsin to 4.1% of the total in Delaware--would have given Wendell Willkie an electoral ticket to the White House". This has led to a lot of figuring on the part of amateur politicians. A reshuffling of "180,000 votes would have given Roosevelt all 48 states. In the 1896 campaign, a switch of 14,000 votes
