The anniversary issue contained a special English supplement with letters of greeting from President Roosevelt and Governor Lehman and articles by statesmen and writers, including Thomas Mann, Sinclair Lewis, Booth Tarkington, Waldo Frank, Ludwig Lewisohn, Dr. Cyrus Adler and Professor Morris R. Cohen.
