The two leaders arrived within an hour of each other on separate trains. Churchill came from -Halifax where he arrived yesterday, Mr. Roosevelt, accompanied by Mrs. Roosevelt; his chief of staff, Admiral William Leahy: and military and naval aides, came from .Washington. After his arrival, Churchill walked across four railroad tracks to where the president waited for him in a large open touring car. Mr. Roosevelt greeted the prime minister with an informal "Well, hello—I'm glad to sec you." The president was dressed in a dark suit and woro> his usual panama hat. But Churchill wore his typical sea-going outfit and puffed a cigar while he chatted with the president. The two men compared notes on how each other feeling, and Churchill speaking of the Allied war successes, remarked that "victory is everywhere." The size of the crowd at the railroad station led Churchill to re- mbfji that it wns a mob scene, At the time, about fifty or more photographers were trying to snap the two leaders in different poses.
