Presumably it is a pleasure for President Roosevelt to use the pin cushion which is on the posterior position of Hitler statuette (arrow in left photo) – one of numerous do-dads that adorn the chief executive’s desk in Washington, as shown May 16, 1942. The President is said to have taken a special liking to the Hitler gadget, right). (AP Photo)
