Mennen and Johnson's


The  reaction to my momentous event is much the same, in the small town, as anywhere else.  Proof of this was very evident, when on last Thursday evening, shortly after six, one not having heard that the president had suddenly died, on looking down the street wondered why the dead silence, and inactivity at a time of day when it was usually lively.  Why had the village suddenly become so quiet, why were the streets deserted, and the telephone silent?  It could be compared on to D-Day last June, when a similar condition existed.  As the news was passed around, later in the evening, people getting  together, wondered if it could be true, and when convinced that is was, only expressions of regret and sorrow could be heard.  Political party lines forgotten, only one thought remained, a great American had passed on leaving a sorrowing world behind.
