25 Years Ago Today Franklin D Roosevelt toured the Midwest, returning from a Hawaii vacation, as large parts of the agricultural heartland were ravaged by searing drought. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt shakes hands from back of train; crowds wave and cheer. Drought scenes, dying and dead livestock. Men fill containers with water and transport them. Herd of (skinny) cattle.
