New Republic;2/6/56, Vol. 134 Issue 6, p2
The article presents information about several political developments in the U.S. The real danger to American institutions comes, not from Russia but Canada. How the self-appointed guardians of this Republic can remain blind to the subversive goings-on is hard to guess. Canada has the "baby bonus" plan for all mothers irrespective of wealth; it insures workers against unemployment; it gives everybody over 70 a $40-a month old age pension. It has the effrontery to do this and have a dollar worth more than the US dollar. Government costs are now indefinitely on their way up again.
