' ', Specific Requests Devoutly expressing the hope ' that it would hot become necessary to put armed force in action, the president specifically asked for authority to supply United States merchant ships with defensive arms "with means of using them" and "to employ, any other instrumentalities" as well as " sufficient credit" to enable him to provide "adequate means of protection."

The place I am taking' you -to- now is owned by and still run by a woman and her two daughters. Last week a shell exploded in the little store they keep.
