G. J. Ledet - Principal 1945-1946

12 April 1945


The sudden and wholly unexpected death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt has plunged his countrymen and the Allies into mourning. With the worldwide grief, are mingled bewilderment and perplexity regarding the affect upon world events of his departure at the moment when the need of his counsels and leadership approached its peak. With the collapse of enemy resistance near in Europe and the fateful Conference of United Nations only to a few days ahead, Mr. Roosevelt faced greater responsibilities and opportunities than any of his contemporaries and was counted upon by millions, of many tongues and under many flags, to render the most outstanding service to humanity in the setting up of a new peace and a new order.

Four times elected to the American presidency, Franklin Roosevelt played a mighty part in national affairs from his induction. He began his first term as a financial depression gripped the country and may be longest remembered for his inspiring courage in its darkest days and for the measures organized under his leadership to relieve distress and conquer the widespread and persistent unemployment. As war approached the old world, he sensed the peril earlier than some of the overseas statesmen did and shaped the American policies and courses to meet its impact. Thanks in considerable part of his foresight and energy, our preparations for defense were well advanced when the attack on Pearl Harbor came.

The world war piled added responsibilities and duties upon him. He carried them fearlessly and cheerfully, winning worldwide prestige and influence. Most of us anticipated his rise to greater influence as leading counselor and perhaps the chief architect of the postwar organization for world peace and cooperation. He was to have spoken for the United States officially and unofficially as a champion of all the lesser democracies and the ideals held in common.

His summons from the human scene is the more deeply regretted because of its seeming untimeliness. It is not for us to know, or to question, the decisions of The Most High. Our own national experience teaches us that no man is indispensable. The American leaders who survive will carry forward the work that Franklin Roosevelt's sudden passing left unfinished, with the help and guidance of his spirit and example.
