Lorna Stephenson ’41 was among the three sponsors of a “Youth Petition to Congress” signed by 350 college students and calling for “full American support to the forces fighting nazism.”  “Older people,” the petition said, “can buy a few years of comparative truce by appeasement.  It is our generation that would pay for those years by living an impoverished life in an utterly hostile world….  We are not afraid of the consequences of giving the enemies of nazism everything they need to secure victory.  We are desperately afraid of the consequences of giving too little and too late.”     The New York Times
