There has also been criticism o: exaggerated censorship at Quebec where Churfchill and Roosevol huve been meeting. I'll try to Illustrate my point of view about these 1 two.

At Dumbarton Oaks a meal is being prepared. That meal is going to be u surprise to the guests. Leave the cooks alone. When dinner is being served you can criticize It till you want, leave t a.'-jnc or got. a second helping-. Dumbarton Oaks is the kitchen.
