- 23 · Who’s Who—and Why · [uncredited] · cl; mostly about Franklin D. Roosevelt, then Assistant Secretary of the Navy. The comments on FDR, especially considering that this is June of 1913, are ironic and somewhat horrifying: “Should there be a war Franklin Roosevelt will simply resign as assistant secretary of the navy, simply organize a regiment, simply take command, and simply knock the spots off the invading foe. After that the world will be his. It is foreordained, prearranged - provided some one will kindly supply the war. Hey, boy, bring on a war! Fetch a war, I tell you, and be quick about it! Will that boy never come with that war?”
