ABSTRACT
Reports on the unwillingness of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt to take the American people into his confidence during the Second World War. Report that he has made fewer addresses to the nation and has become more and more difficult for members of the Congress to see him; Information on his Ottawa, Ontario speech where he said that it was no secret that at Quebec there was much talk of the post-war world; Report that before he went to Quebec the President told a group of his advisers what his plans were for the post-war world; Report that at Quebec conference he, together with Secretary of State and Foreign Minister, agreed upon a course which will result in a virtual alliance to bind the U.S. and Great Britain after the termination of hostilities; Views of Palmer Hoyt, director of the domestic branch of the Office of War Information about the military conduct of the war; Admittance of the President's close advisers that he has made only a small attempt to provide the intellectual leadership which the country needs; Report that when the Quebec conference was announced it was said by most observers that the question of getting Italy out of the war and the problem of improving relations with Russia would be foremost on the agenda; View that in the field of propaganda and political warfare the conference was a total failure if one is to judge it by the formal statement and the President's Ottawa speech.
