President Truman Has
Hard Job Ahead of Him
President Harry S. Truman im
mediately after he had taken the
oath of office, made it clear that
no changes in the policies set up
to win the war would be changed.
He retained the Roosevelt cabinet
for the present, and on Monday
made an address to Congress that
brought favorable comments from
Congressional leaders as well as
business men and statesmen around
Known as plain, modest
man who baa not dramatized
himself personally, President
Truman nevertheless has dem
onstrated on many occasions
that he can be a leader of force
and determination. His work as
chairman of the Truman com
mittee in the U. 8. senate in
vestigating the conduct of the
war is cited as an example of
this. And his conduct of the
Vice Presidency has shown that
he can work successfully with
political leaders of both parties
in getting needed measures
passed and in reconciling op
posing points of view.
The 3!ird President was born in
!, uinar, Mo., May 8, 1884, although
the home of the family for fbur
generations had been pn a farm
near Independence, Mo.i
Served In World War I.
When World War I broke out,
Truman became captain of Bat
tery D in the field artillery of
the 35th Division and saw ac
tion at St. Mihiel and In the
Back in Independence, Truman
and a war buddy opened a haber
rl -shery business. He married his
uoyhood sweetheait, Bess Wallace,
imd they have one daughter, Mary
Truman later turned to politics
air a career, which started with his
"lection as County Judge of Jack-
iiii county. Mo. In 1926 he became
hp presiding judge of Jackson
(unity, with the endorsement of
i'im Pendergast, political boss of
Kmsas City. He studied law at
ni .'lit and supervised the construc
tion of a great highway system.
Never before bad an American
President died in wartime. Abra
ham Lincoln fell under Assassin
Booth's bullet just five days after
the surrender of General Lee's army
at Appomattox in 1C6."). Woodrow
Wilson lived to see victory over
Germany in World War I, but he
fought a losing battle for the
League of Nations and died early
in 1924, a defeated leader. Many
hi -orians believe Lincoln's great
nets might have been dimmed in
the conllicts over reconstruction
that followed the War Between the
States, just as Wilson's prestige
was lo.st in the conflict over the
league that followed World War I.
Thus Franklin Roosevelt, dying at
the height of his career just as vic
tory was to be achieved over Ger
many, seemed likely to live in his
tory as a great man.
As the American people from
Main Street to Riverside Drive
mourned the death of Franklin
Roosevelt, their prayers went up
for his successor, Harry S. Truman.
For on the shoulders of this slight,
gray, 60-year-old Missourian had
been laid a responsibility such as
no American President had ever
What the consequences of the
President's death would be to
the United States and the
world, time alone would tell.
But as Americans recovered
from their first shock at the
news, they quickly determined
two things. The war must be
prosecuted to as speedy and
victorious a finish as possible.
Lasting peace must be estab
And so, regardless of party or of
past political differences, the peo
ple have rallied behind Mr. Truman.
The new President faces the im
mediate task of directing American
participation in the United Nations'
blueprints for a permanent world
organization. He likewise faces the
responsibility of establishing work
ing relations with other members
of the Big Three, so that the per
sonal cooperation which existed be
tween Franklin D. Roosevelt. Josef
Stalin and Winston Churchill in
leading the Allies toward victory
and comfort; that his broad and
noble conceptions of justice, ser
vice and equality, unity, order and
peace have enspired our hearts and
souls with a resolute determina
tion to forge ahead fearlessly into
the future with a renewed confi
dence and a stronger and more
active faith; that Time will assign
to him the most high and honored
place in the annals of mortal man;
that as his death united the free
people of the world in sorrow, in
tears and in prayer, his abiding
spirit will weld all the freedom
loving nations of the world togeth
er in the holy bonds of universal
Be it further resolved that the
testimony of our deep sorrow and
grief and that of the people wbere
ever free men live and the bereave
ments of his family in his death,
these resolutions be spread on the
minutes of this Board as a perma
nent record; that a copy be trans
mitted to his widow under the
seal of this Board; that a copy be
delivered to the press for publi
cation; and that this Board do now
adjourn in honor of his hallowed
