Declarations of Admiration and Friendship for the United States,
1926. This is a 112-volume series containing illustrations of
representative Polish scenes and the signatures of the Polish
president, other dignitaries, and five million Polish school
children. The set was presented to President Coolidge as a
testimonial of the gratitude and friendship of the Polish people for
the United States on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of
Independence.

I have heard that in the 1930's each grade of school children from
Poland's grade schools signed petitions of friendship with the U.S.
Does anyone know anything about this?
