1944 in Print — ‘Walter Winchell on Broadway,’ Feb. 25, 1944

Dear. Mr. President

This is more than an accusation against Franco the Fascist. It is a bill of particulars for the Senate and House foreign relations committee. It screams for investigation … Right now an American ambassador sits with a dictator and a war criminal — whom the ambassador has proclaimed as the savior of his country … in the dictator’s jails languish 200,000 people, whose sole crime is that they believe in democracy … The American ambassador is Carlton J.H. Hayes, and his crony, the German agent Hayes has proclaimed as the savior of his country and the builder of its future, is dictator Franco.

From the St. Petersburg Times.

    Impressive research, done without the internet! I hope FDR yanked Ambassador Hayes’ leash.
