Leadership-Two Views

April 1956
New Republic;4/30/56, Vol. 134 Issue 18, p3
The article focuses on the views of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower and candidate Adlai Stevenson about the foreign aids and helping the farmers. After hearing the speeches, the editors voted 2-to-1 in a straw poll that the U.S. is losing the Cold War; in effect, agreeing that Stevenson's appraisal of the state of the world made more sense than President Eisenhower's. Plans of action proposed by the President and Mr. Stevenson were no less in contrast. Eisenhower said he felt that ' in the less-developed nations the urgent need is for economic and social progress for their people; and he asked the editors to help win support for his $4.9 billion foreign-aid bill. But nine-tenths of the funds the President seeks would go to pay for military hardware and defense support. Only one-tenth is earmarked for economic development.
