Three news releases, one with the press' masthead. JANUARY 19, 1944: Two-page article by Devere Allen about revolt in Bolivia. MAY 31, 1944 - Vol. XII, No. 36 (with masthead): News briefs from American and worldwide sources, including the defeat of Joe Starnes, member of the House of Representatives from Alabama; Mexican communists; Canadian politics; Venezuela's penal system, European invasion rumors (WWII Allies) reported by someone identified as Senator 97 and relief preparations. The rumors proved true a week later with the D-Day invasion by allied troops on June 6, 1944; and more. JUNE 7, 1944: The final news release in this lot, notable for its lack of any reporting on the preceding historic day-the D-Day invasion of France by the Allies, the largest seaborne invasion in history. W.S. Edgar reports in this issue on taxation in Canada (Struggle Over Dominion Taxation Nears Climax). DEVERE ALLEN, Co-Founder, Editor, and Publisher of Worldover Press: A leader in the pacifist and social movements who became one of the most prominent political pacifists during the interwar years. He launched the No-Frontier News Service (later renamed Worldover News) in 1933 as an alternative international news service sympathetic to the peace movement. As a student during World War I, Allen, with Quaker roots, had opposed American involvement in the war and joined pacifist and social justice groups on campus. He continued these endeavors during the years between the two world wars, becoming a leader in peace and social justice movements, while also working as a journalist and editor. He was the Socialist Party candidate twice for U.S. Senate and once for Governor of Connecticut. He stayed consistent in his beliefs and philosophy toward pacifism during World War II, the period in which these news releases were published. Several issues of this publication located through OCLC, none in the online markets for sale as of summer 2020.
