This is a small snippet from a longer COLLIER'S MAGAZINE article by Winston Churchill in which he praised the virtues of the Anglo-American alliance (soon to be stretched to the limit) and the economic leadership forged by the two nations during the Depression. However, four paragraphs are devoted to the confusion he experienced when stopping to consider some of President Roosevelt's decisions on the matter of the domestic economy and the roll played by his National Recovery Administration (NRA).

"...But when it comes to shortening the hours of labor at a time of unparalleled unemployment, one feels that President Roosevelt is again marching along the high road of national and international salvation."
