Platforms and Red China

August 1956
New Republic;8/13/56, Vol. 135 Issue 7, p4
This article focuses on the American foreign policy issue towards providing a platform for gaining membership of United Nations for the Communist country, China. In 1952 the more verbose Democratic platform and the briefer Republican statement were almost devoid of specific commitments on foreign affairs, where any attempt to tie a party's hands on a detailed question for four years is likely to prove awkward. This year, the foreign policy issue is likely to find its way into the platforms in rigid form, and thus come back to haunt the winning party. In this regard, a group calling itself the "Committee of One Million Against the Admission of Communist China to the United Nations" is now circulating a proposed plank for inclusion in both Democratic and Republican pledges.
