This chapter first describes Harold L. Ickes's speech during the first annual meeting of the Institute of Ethnic Affairs, held in Washington, D.C., on May 29, 1946. Ickes, syndicated newspaper columnist and former Secretary of the Interior, was John Collier's choice for main speaker. He delivered what later became known as the opening salvo in the battle to take the governments of Guam and American Samoa away from the Navy and to place the former Japanese islands in the Trusteeship Council under the General Assembly of the United Nations instead of the Security Council. The chapter then presents the author's account of working at the Institute of Ethnic Affairs starting June 1946. Her first assignment was writing and editing the Institute's monthly News Letter.
