Where Party Lines Are Not Important..

Monday, Aug 28, 1944

1944_08_28_Edinburg Daily CourierAfter the Shenandoah ridges and rolling Ohio country, we’re here at Jacksonville, Indiana motel in the midst of flat farmland as far as the eye can see. We rarely get news on the radio but the motel manager let us borrow his newspaper. It’s only four pages and little news about the war. This front-page editorial cartoon is very clear about the upcoming presidential election. Mommy is doing laundry the way she does every night when we travel. She drapes the wet clothes on the bedposts to dry for the next day’s travel. Tomorrow – back to Illinois, maybe even my birthplace in Carbondale!
