md hard work ...
In the concept of the Four Freedoms, in the basic principles of the
Atlantic Charter, we have set for ourselves high goals, unlimited
These concepts and. these principles are designed to form a world
in which men, women and children can live in freedom and in equity, and,

When the Harding administration came into power,
it called a naval disarmament conference and sunk a sub
stantial part of the American fleet In exchange fer a
