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. He recounts Wendell Wilkie`s appearance before the Senate Committee and former presidential candidate`s approval of the bill.

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: 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Act "forbids [American] ships from going to the ports of Great Britain," Gore strongly suggests that the law should be repealed.

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."

Abstract: In this WSM radio broadcast script, Representative Albert Gore of Tennessee expresses his disapproval of President Harry S. Truman`s removal of General MacArthur`s from command in Korea.
