Download PDF for this date

Asserting that hatreds breed war, Henry Ford told press representatives here today that one of the principal post-war needs is to eradicate ill will among nations.

“The war,” Mr. Ford said, “had proved very definitely that the problems of one people are the problems of all others — whether they be Jews, Gentiles, Mohammedan or Orientals. These problems are going to be common problems, and we are going to have to live together as good neighbors, helping one another and expecting help from one another. Only on that basis can a safe, peaceful future of the world be expected.”
