All while conflict simmered in Europe — a British cruiser, the H.M.S. Voltaire, was sunk by German U-boats in the Atlantic on April 4, and soon after Hitler began bombing Bulgaria. Meanwhile, in Congress, Rep. Carl Vinson of Georgia calls for “separate investigations … into the effect of defense strikes on production.” Photo: The New York Times
