ABSTRACT
This article focuses on international economic relations. The accord reached at Geneva in July stirred hope of peace in all lands and was the great event of 1955. Soviet actions in the Middle East and in Southeast Asia are in complete conformity with the Geneva accord as they interpret it. They have as much right as the Western nations to aid and to influence these nations. They intend to align themselves fully with "and-colonialism," which means their resistance to the West, and it is the Western governments who are violating the spirit of Geneva if they object and attempt to shut die Russians out. The drive for import quotas to nullify recent foreign-trade progress is led by another tariff lobby, the Nationwide Committee of Industry, Labor and Agriculture on Export-Import Policy. Its director is a former Texas cattleman, O.R. Strackbein, and its office is one block from the White House in Washington.
