Monday, June 12, 1933

Betty and I had a tea party for Baby Doll and Joyce. We had two kinds of sandwiches, cake, ice cream, candy and peanuts. Daddy came back from up home.


Edouard Daladier, the Premier of France, center, stands with the French delegation to the
World Economic Conference in London, which began on June 12, 1933. More than a thousand
of the world's top finance and government officials squeezed into London's stuffy Geological
 Museum to try to win agreement on measures to fight global depression, revive international trade,
and stablilize currency exchange rates. Six weeks later, the World Economic Conference gave up and,
without agreement, adjourned amid squabbling and finger-pointing between the world's democracies.
