What Roosevelt Said

Sirs: P. 22, May 27 issue, you state -Mr. Roosevelt has many times said that only an almost inconceivable crisis would make him a Term III candidate.quot; When did he say it-and how did TIME alone come to find it out? It's what the whole country has been longing to hear but so far as I have ever heard previously has signally failed to hear.

R. S. BOARDMAN Bloomfield, N. J.

Franklin Roosevelt has told a lot of people privately-which means that he is free to deny it if he chooses (see TIME, June 10).-ED.
