Adopts Slogan , Author Has Attack "WASHINGTON, June I (UP) — There's, a real story behind President Roosevelt's cliolce of "The Tyrants'War" as the nnmc for the present conflict. It all goes back about a year ngd. It was when the President quarreled with the, idea of calling this "The Second World War" and risked for suggestions for •« more accurate descriptive tllle. Letters poured into (he White House by the thousands, and at one stage, the President tentatively chose "The War of Survival." But recently an ex-school teacher by the' name of J. H, Snyder wrote, the President from Murfrccs- koro, Tennessee. And it was he who suggested "The Tyrants War." ' But • that's not- tlie end of the story. Snyder who is 68 and n semi-invalid was so touched to learn that tile President favors his title, that lie suffered a heart attack when told of It today. Because of fulling eyesight, Snyder spents most of his time listen• Ing lo his radio, keeping abreast of current news with avid interest. And lit; says that he based his suggestion on the most, common reference given the. war by world leaders. But that's all Snyrtcr's doctors will allow him to say at this lime, They report that ho is very sick and have barred visitors until he becomes stronger. No Strikes in 'Uttle.DetroitANew.
