The effect on Italy is being closely watched. The Italian press has adopted an attitude of indifference, pending a chance to study i the situation.

NEWARK, N. J., Oct. 20.— (/I 5 )— A comment by Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt in her newspaper column on Col. Charles Lindbergh's recent neutrality broadcast was described Thursday night by General Hugh S. Johnson as "exactly the kind of stuff that got us into the war in 1917." Departing from his prepared speech before the Newark Advertising club, Johnson declared that Lindbergh "for speaking his pro-American opinion against other policies has been called pro-Nazi by such emotionally biased pro-war pundits as Walter Lippman and Dorothy Thompson and now — today — by the first lady of the land herself." (In her syndicated column "My Day," Mrs. Roosevelt said Dorothy Thompson, another columnist. "sensed in Col. Lindbergh's speech a sympathy with Nazi ideals which I thought existed but could not bring myself to believe was really true.")
