Just weeks before the U.S. presidential election of 1932, this column appeared in a political magazine indicating the mood of the voters following three years of economic disasters brought on by the Great Depression. It is interesting to read that there was far more of an optimistic spirit than one might have supposed:
• "I BELIEVE that an egg in every omelette is more important than a chicken in every pot."
• "I BELIEVE the average American has gotten over the yen for a two-car garage and that he now feels four tires were always enough for any working man to worry over."
