Photograph caption dated November 9, 1961, reads "Senator urges 'national purpose' - Sen. Gale McGee (D-Wyo.), center, told San Fernando Valley executives Wednesday night that the United States must explore its national purpose. McGee said it wasn't enough to ask what are we against, such as communism, but we must determine what we are for. 'We will find we are for people everywhere,' said McGee. Harry F. Ross, left, 1st vice president of the Executives' Dinner Club, and Harold E. White, member of the board of directors, right, welcomed McGee to the dinner, at Sportsmen's Lodge, 12833 Ventura Blvd., Studio City."
