A Sad Passing

On March 28, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower passed away, just three years after the 10th anniversary of the People-to-People program.

In the Town Affiliation News, the editors encouraged readers, saying:

“Now is the time and opportunity for all Americans as well as the citizens of the many friendly nations to join in the spirit of People-to-People and build in Eisenhower’s remembrance not just an inert monument of stone, but a living memorial that will carry on his drive for universal understanding and peace.”
