Republicans plead for unity

Wednesday, June 28, 1944

Eleanor Roosevelt’s noted in her “My Day” column that “in Chicago where the Republicans are proceeding about the business of nominating a candidate for the presidency, there seems to be some agitation shown in a plea for unity within the party. That has rarely been necessary in the Republican Party in the past, and yet today it seems to be necessary in both political parties. Does this indicate a greater independence of thought, or a need in both parties to re-define the things for which we stand?” In Germany, Hitler has summoned Generals Rommel and von Rundstedt for a conference. One commander, General Dollman, will not be at the conference. He has committed suicide after the massacre of German soldiers at the Odon River
