Last week’s question
Which U.S. president kept sheep on the White House lawn to support wartime conservation measures—including saving on manpower by allowing them to eat the growing grass and donating proceeds from wool sales to the Red Cross?
a. Abraham Lincoln
b. Franklin D. Roosevelt
c. John F. Kennedy
d. Woodrow Wilson
