Louis Darabant to Eleanor Roosevelt

Louis Darabant to Eleanor Roosevelt

12 November 1947 [Cleveland]

Dear Mrs. Roosevelt:

We the students of Thomas A. Edison School were discussing United Nation Organization problems and we came across this question, "Why doesn't the General Assembly start immediate action for a United Nation's Army?" Why not set aside political problems for the time being because these problems will always arise from time to time. Just how could the U.N. enforce the peace if a war were to break out now?1

What about the Dutch and Indonesian Civil War for instance?2 Shouldn't a U.N. Army be on hand to settle those outbreaks? You don't need an Army when there is peace, why not organize one now to get peace in the world?

                                           Sincerely yours,

                                           Louis J. Darabant

TLS AERP, FDRL

After reading the student's letter, ER then dictated the following response.3

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
