NotesOn reverse : " - My man's outside" (82). US Ends Embargo on Selling Arms. Nov. 4. At a press conference this afternoon President Roosevelt said that tomorrow he would sign the Neutrality Bill. This will allow Britain and France to buy arms and munitions in the United States. This ends a fierce debate in Congress over neutrality which has been going on since Congress met in a special session on September 21. It also ends the conflict between Roosevelt and the isolationists which began when Congress passed the first Neutrality Act in 1935. One immediate effect will be to make 800 planes available to Britain and France. Allied war orders are expected to total 250 million pounds over the next few weeks. [Chronicle of the 20th Century]
