New Republic;4/30/56, Vol. 134 Issue 18, p2
The article presents information related to several political issues. Americans have been lulled so long by complacent jokes about the low Soviet living standard that it is going to be hard to wake up to reality. Russian living standards are low, of course, but in the last third of a century the Soviet Union has transformed itself into one of the world's biggest industrial nations, and it is now belting along at a pace faster than the U.S. A whole lot of disagreeable information on the subject of Red China is about ready to fall on Americans, most of it probably not till after the election. The next President will have to begin the disagreeable job of educating citizens to the fact that the U.S. is almost alone now in trying to keep Red China out of the UN and of pretending that it is appropriate that the island of Formosa should be a member of the 11-member UN Council with its veto-power and all.
