[Kennedy, John F.] Hersey, John  
Survival: From a PT base in the Solomons comes this nightmare epic of the will-to-live (Reader's Digest, v. 45, August 1944, pages 75-80)
 Picture
Publisher: Pleasantville Reader's Digest Assoc., Inc. 1944.
Duodecimo, Magazine , 128 pages. Condition: Near fine.
Complete issue of Reader's Digest magazine containing John Hersey's story of John F. Kennedy and PT-109. To put it simply, this is the article that launched Kennedy's political career. Hersey, a Kennedy family friend, first published this flattering account in the 'New Yorker.' But Joe Kennedy, unhappy with the New Yorker's relatively small circulation, pressed editor Paul Palmer for this appearance in the much more widely read 'Reader's Digest.' It was a shrewd move, and this condensed version of the PT-109 incident proved crucial to Kennedy's early political success. Indeed, this version was reprinted for each of JFK's subsequent campaigns, including his 1960 presidential run. As to the story itself, few would argue that young Lt. Kennedy acted heroically in his efforts to rescue his men after his PT boat was rammed by a Japanese destroyer. But veteran PT commanders were incredulous that Kennedy's fast and highly maneuverable PT-109 had failed to evade the ramming in the first place. In fact no other PT boat was ever rammed by an enemy ship before or after Kennedy's, and he narrowly escaped court-martial for the incident. The magazine is bound in green printed covers with a stapled binding. There is some minor extremity wear and an isolated curved tear of maybe .75" in the lower third of the back cover.

H. H. Stallard  
PRODUCTION FOR USE: Technocracy's Way . End Poverty in America

Publisher: H. H. Stallard Portland Oregon.
Gray printed wraps, 24 pages. An odd political treatise by Stallard, who was running for Congress during the Depression. His 'Technocracy' offered some odd political and economic views. 'I will, as a representative in Congress, introduce a resolution requesting the President to declare Martial Law, issue $50 pr month to all dependent adults and $25 per month for dependent minors; that all means of production and distribution be commandeered and used for service only; that all able-bodied adults be put to work at what ever hours are necessary to produce an abundance for all; that commodity or kill-a-watt hour dollars be issued against all production and frunished to all people in sufficient quantities to satisfy all needs; that all commodity dollars be issued for a period of one year and cancelled when used.' You'll have to read it a puzzle it out to see how and why he thought this would work. Technocracy apparently rejected all previous poltical theories such as communism, socialism, capitalism, and wanted to base ecnomics on 'machine-power or the consumption of energy by man and his machines.' ??? Odd little piece of political and/or economic ephemera. One phrase on the last page has been circled, touch of rust at staples, otherwise very clean and sound.
