NotesNews: March 11. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Lease-Lend agreement with Britain. The idea of letting Britain use American military equipment without paying until after the war originated with the President. Last November the British Ambassador confessed to American reports "Britain is broke". In a fireside chat broadcast Roosevelt used the homely analogy of lending a neighbour a hose to put out a fire. Mr Churchill replied "Give us the tools and we'll finish the job". In Britain the passage of the Lend-Lease Bill through Congress was welcomed. The expression 'New Order' originated in a Nazi declaration that they were building a 'New Order in Europe'
