and at Prm Dally W.SO; month* wtm. What FDR Wanted {Reprinted from Iftt Woiftinglon, D, C., Evening Star) The Walter Russell statue of the Four Freedoms stands in Florida in memory of Colin Kelly, one of the first great heroes of World War II. It matters little now, therefore, that the model originally was created as a memorial to Franklin Roosevelt. What does matter, however, is how infinitely infinitely more fitting and appropriate a memorial memorial to the late president this statue would have been than the weird collection of graveyard slabs that the Roosevelt Memorial Memorial Commission wants to build in Potomac Potomac Park. According to sculptor Russell, the concept of the Four Freedoms was selected by Mr. Roosevelt himself as one he hoped would be embodied in his memorial. Perhaps this wish still might be fulfilled in some new form. Eventually, we *uppose, the matter will have to be decided by Congress. We hope, in any event, that the decision in more representative of the man aud will be a more gracious addition to nation's capital than the monstrosity now being advanced.
