I grew up not knowing much about Wendell Willkie, for I was only four in 1940 when he ran against Franklin Roosevelt for the presidency. I knew that because of his rural Indiana background, wags called him “the barefoot boy from Wall Street.” I also knew that my father had voted for him, as he also did for Thomas E. Dewey, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon. He only voted for a Democrat once. “I voted for Jimmy Carter,” said my dad.
TO THE EDITOR: Night crawler money box thief: Just to let you know we weren’t in the night crawler business to make money, as you could see, at the price of $1.00 per dozen. I’m sure you needed the money to buy food and clothes, and not foolish things. The money in the box was not that big of a deal, as it was only 40-80 dollars. The big deal was the box my Dad made for me and he passed away 18 years ago, so the box had sentimental value and not money. It would be nice if you could bring the box back.
