Cain and the President

Berman, Daniel N.
June 1956
New Republic;6/25/56, Vol. 134 Issue 26, p10
The article focuses on politics in the U.S. On June 8, at 3:19 p.m., Harry Cain, former Republican Senator from Washington, the U.S. Capital, left his office in the Lafayette Building, which houses the Subversive Activities Control Board. Cain noted the exact time because he wanted to find out how long it would take him to walk to the White House, Washington D.C. Cain had waited more than a year for that walk. Within a matter of weeks after Cain's first open attack in January, 1955, on the federal loyalty-security program the White House closed its doors to him. Letters to Presidential Assistant Sherman Adams and Attorney General Herbert Brovwnell went unanswered. The article further discusses about the meeting between Cain and the U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
