Washington Wire

July 1954
New Republic;7/19/54, Vol. 131 Issue 3, p2
This article presents information on various political developments in the U.S. U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower didn't get to the 1954 Governors' Conference. At Seattle, Washington in 1953, he told the Governors that aid for Indo-China was "the cheapest way that we can prevent a most terrible" blow to the U.S. security. That blow has now fallen although Vice President Richard Nixon earlier congratulated the American people that Communists everywhere had "lost the initiative." The fact is the U.S. position has badly deteriorated. On August 19, 1954 Eisenhower has a tentative date to speak at the Springfield, Illinois State Fair. Democratic Senator Paul Douglas, running for re-election is up against Joseph Meek, lobbyist for the 10,000 storekeepers in the Illinois Federation of Retailers. The "Citizens for Eisenhower" group has withheld support for Meek, despite his appeal, on the ground that he won't pledge himself to back Eisenhower's middle-road policies.
