Summary
  • Walter Compton. 1944-06-06, part 1. Walter Compton, wanting to present the women's point of view regarding the European invasion, introduces Mrs. Raymond Clapper [Olive Ewing Clapper]. She quotes the Christian Bible verse, Galatians 6:7, for use by the Nazis. She comments about the mindset and reactions of wives of admirals, generals, and politicians. She quotes Mrs. Harold Stark [Katherine Adele Rhoads Stark], Mrs. Ruth Spaatz [Ruth Harrison Spaatz], Mrs. Doolittle [Josephine "Joe" E. Daniels Doolittle], and Mrs. Henry Wallace [Ilo Browne Wallace]. Olive Clapper then relates the reactions of women from the general public, both white women and women of color, women who agree with the invasion and those that do not agree. She concludes with her own reactions to the invasion. She quotes a letter written by a flier from the United States flying with the RAF. Mr. Compton announces that the allies are trying to take the port of Cherbourg and Le Havre. He explains that this strategy around Caen will allow the allies to cut off the railroad and open the ports to supply the allied troops. He recalls how the Port of Le Havre was used in the First World War by the military as well as the Salvation Army. He remarks that the offensive has met with less resistance than expected
  • Walter Compton. 1944-06-06, part 2. Speculation of where the next allied landings will be after they secure a port in France. Ends the broadcast with a prayer for peace. Unannounced orchestral piece. Station identification
  • WCAE local news. The enemy is admitting through broadcasts that the allies have been successful at making inroads on the Normandy coast. Allied parachutists have taken over an airfield in the Calais area. 200 allied ships have been sighted off the coast of Caen. Fierce fighting is taking place on the islands of Guernsey and Jersey. The allies have full control of Honfleur to Deauville. Broadcasts from our allies state that Montgomery is pleased with the initial phase of the invasion. Admiral Ernest King said the invasion is doing all right after a consult with the President of the United States. Churchill says the troops have advanced several miles inland. They met with less resistance than anticipated. The broadcaster states, "War-painted American Indians were among the first of these paratroops to land in France this morning. These Indians are a troop picturesquely self-termed, The Filthy 13." The allied planes were painted with blue and white zebra stripes. The armada stretched for 200 miles. President Roosevelt will broadcast a prayer. and asks all to join him, at 10:00 p.m Eastern War Time. The text will be broadcast before President's broadcast so that all may participate. The invasion was scheduled for yesterday but was delayed. Russian armies are still attacking from the East. Germans are fleeing the front in Italy
