Who Makes the Decisions

Collins, Frederic W.
March 1956
New Republic;3/19/56, Vol. 134 Issue 12, p8
The article evaluates the Presidential tenure of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower in terms of policy initiatives and efficacy of his administration. In the Eisenhower administration, numerous disadvantages are aggravated by special circumstances. One is the addiction of the Secretary of State to tourism. The other is the recurrent physical dispersal of the top echelons of government during Eisenhower's rest periods away from Washington. A third disadvantage, arising principally from zeal for the staff system, is a sort of drying out of the human substance of government.
