Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies[edit]

According to Herbert Hoover's Freedom Betrayed White resigned from this Committe on Dec. 26, 1940. His position was similar to that of Hoover. He wanted to aid the Allies but stay out of the war. Herbert Hoover, Freedom Betrayed (Stanford, CA: Hoover Institution Press, 2011) pp. 197-198.

Hoover and White were very far apart--Hoover ridiculed White's efforts and was delighted when White lost control of his group. Hoover was in sympathy with the "America First" movement which was White's biggest enemy. see Betrayal pp 197-99.Rjensen (talk) 03:56, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Dead Links[edit]

The third reference in the footnotes (related to White's article "What's the Matter With Kansas?") is a dead link. Moreover, the Wikipedia link in the text runs to the recent book titled What's the Matter With Kansas? and is therefore inappropriate. I don't know how to fix this, but I suspect it should be brought to the attention of the originating contributor. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.125.137.199 (talk) 09:09, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Dreamcast?[edit]

I removed this sentence from Trivia:

In Dreamcast episode 1 William Allen White was the name of an elementary school.

because I can't find anything called "Dreamcast" that might have had an episode 1. Maybe this was a typo? This sentence was added from an IP address which has made no other Wikipedia contributions. This could be re-inserted if it is explained what "Dreamcast" is, and without the link to the Dreamcast video game console. Mditto 10:24, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
