General Douglas MacArthur, Farewell Address to Congress (April 19, 1951)
        “…old soldiers never die; they just fade away.” And like the old soldier of that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty.”

Edwin Cole (April 19, 1951)
        “Letter to President Harry S. Truman in response to General Douglas MacArthur’s Farewell Address before the United States Congress.”

The McCarran-Walter Act: The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 ~ June 27, 1952
         “The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 upheld the national origins quota system established by the Immigration Act of 1924, reinforcing this controversial system of immigrant selection.”

John Mason Brown – Groton, Mass., 1958
        “I am sick and tired of the snivelers, the defeated and the whiners.”
