Sept. 1, 1941: I thought it would be interesting to check in with our friends in 1941, since Pearl Harbor is only three months away.

Times editorial cartoonist Bruce Russell’s Labor Day drawing says that it’s unpatriotic to strike in these uncertain days.

Lee Shippey writes about Donoho Hall, technical advisor on “Sergeant York,” who says “the problem of the 5 million uneducated hillbillies in the South should be more America’s problem than any foreign missions.”

Tom Treanor on the French army, citing RAF Col. Charles Sweeny: “Months after the war had begun, in fact in the spring just before the blitz, French regiments all over the front were heated up over an inter-regimental competition — to see who could grow the prize flower garden.”

Lunched today with an exhibitor friend who cried into every dish, from soup to dessert, over MGM’s reported decision to discontinue the “Maisie” series, Jimmie Fidler says.
