Deserves Special Award

Annually, about this time of year, awards are announced for this, that, and etc. Usually the main object seems to be to get the name of some company, organization, product or individual in the newspapers.

But a new and special award should be created, come January 1, and bestowed upon President Harry S. Truman, who--returning to Washington from an extended sojourn at Key West--told newspaper reporters “there is nothing wrong.”

Newspapers who ran this editorial under their masthead included:

The Times (San Mateo, California) — December 15, 1951
The Daily Chronicle (Centralia, Washington) — December 15, 1951
The Portsmouth Herald (Portsmouth, New Hampshire) — December 17, 1951 (Leather Medal?)
