In 1939, Herbert Hoover, in an article in the Saturday Evening Post, said that if the United States entered another world war �liberty will be lost to America
The Journal was in receipt of a letter from a friend, Herbert Grant, formerly of Jamestown, connected with the First National Bank of Twin Falls, Idaho, telling something of the productivity of the agricultural lands in the state of Idaho and as a sample of the products of the sagebrush soil of that state, which was being brought under irrigation and cultivation, he advised that he had sent two boxes, one of apples and one of potatoes, to Mrs. Grant’s mother, Mrs. J.H. Isbell of Clinton Street. A representative of The Journal saw the fruit and vegetables at the Isbell home and certainly no finer display of apples or potatoes ever came into Jamestown. The apples were individually wrapped and perfect in size and form and the box contained a half dozen different varieties. The potatoes were large and very uniform in size and quality.
The voice of experience says that we cannot create liberty and self-government in Europe,� the former president wrote in an article titled �We Must Keep Out.� �Our greatest service is a strong America to aid the rebuilding of a European world which will be tottering no matter who the victors in this war may be. Our greatest service is to put our own house in order and maintain true liberty upon this continent. For it may be that otherwise liberty will sink for centuries in the night of despair.�
Plans to take the utmost advantage of the �salute to Jamestown� to be given in the Major Bowes amateur radio presentation over the Columbia Broadcasting System on Thursday, Nov. 16, were undertaken at a meeting of a committee at the Hotel Jamestown.
