Date Created: 1943-10-16

Title: Fight to Pass Aid to Great Britain Bill in Congress
Speaker : Albert Gore, Sr., 1907-1998
Date Created: 1941-02-16
Abstract: In this WSM radio broadcast script, Representative Albert Gore of Tennessee discusses the importance of the Aid-to-Britain Bill in Congress.

The representative closes his address by countering Wilkie`s suggestion that the bill limit its assistance to Great Britain, Greece, and China. Gore believes that the United States should be "ready to act when and where necessary for [its] defense."

Title: Gallatin War Bond Rally
Speaker : Albert Gore, Sr., 1907-1998
Date Created: 1943-05-15
Abstract: Congressman Albert Gore visited the city of Gallatin, Tennessee (in Sumner County). In his address to the citizens of the War Bond Rally, Gore encourages the purchase of war bonds, stating that this action will allow the government the funding necessary to prosecute World War II. He believes that the sale of war bonds will discourage the only other alternative to government fundraising--higher taxation. Further, Gore states that the purchase of war bonds will render a huge service to one`s country and illustrates his argument by describing the treacherous actions of the Nazis and the Japanese against Europe and the United States.

Title: The Neutrality Act
Speaker : Albert Gore, Sr., 1907-1998
Date Created: 1941-10-12
Abstract: In this WSM radio broadcast script, Congressman Albert Gore discusses the Neutrality Act and reasons he deems adequate for its repeal. Gore argues that the health of the United States` international trade activity depends upon the business of transoceanic countries, not fellow North American nations. From a militaristic standpoint, the congressional representative believes that control of the seas is imperative to the survival of his country. Thus, Great Britain, America`s "partner in naval control" needs to be protected from the aggressor, and since the Neutrality Act "forbids [American] ships from going to the ports of Great Britain," Gore strongly suggests that the law should be repealed.

Title: Mobilization for Victory
Speaker : Albert Gore, Sr., 1907-1998
Date Created: 1942-02-14
Abstract: In an address delivered to the Independent Bankers Association in St. Paul, Minnesota, Representative Albert Gore argues that Allied victory in World War II is only possible if Americans make that goal their "absorbing purpose."

Secondly, the cost of war must be met, and Gore encourages banks across the United States to "participate and cooperate" with the government`s fiscal agenda.
