Eisenhower didn't want to seem overconfident, in fact, he said he was going to run scared. Dewey conferred frequently about foreign affairs with John Foster Dulles, who was mentioned at most likely to be secretary of state, if ] Dewey won.

In quite the same way, I feel that way, too. But the first lime I saw Paris she was no lovely lady In a slimmer frock. She. wns a fierce lighting lass, with nor gown torn from one shoulder, a gun slung over the other, and her hair streaming defiantly in the wind. It wns the day the Allied liberators marched into Paris — eight years ago (his week. For days the underground French patriots had been buUcllng street barricades at night and fighting running gun battles in the streets with a panicky German garrison. Nazis Begin Fire - Tho Nazis began lo-fire indiscriminately... they pulled a half dozen Frenchmen into a courtyard, tried them and shot them on the spot...the rioting only spread... a home-made bomb—a bottle of gasoline—was tossed Into a passing Nazi troop truck, and tbo enemy eoldlers rolled olf onto the pavement and died In flaming, screaming agony. French cheers echoed from nearby windows. A great Allied task force wns dispatched by. Gen. Omar N. Bradley. It was spearheaded by a French armored division so that Frenchmen could have the honor of liberating their own capital. But the Gallic tanks lumbered slowly. Every few hundred yards they stopped to be garlanded with flowers, and the tankmen crawled out to get a kiss nnd a bottle of wine from the suburban Charm- sines. Finally, the French general was bluntly told lo fight Ws way on into the city or the American Fourth Infantry Division would march In ahead of him.
