One strong word

July 1954
New Republic;7/26/54, Vol. 131 Issue 4, p2
One strong word from U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower, one positive act of Executive support, would have ended, any doubt of passing the Flanders' motion censuring J.McCarthy. No word came. It is the whole story of the change in Washington that nobody now really . expects a White House action which in Harry S. Truman's day would have been taken for granted. Ike is the man who deleted praise of his friend George Marshall from his campaign speech" in Milwaukee to placate McCarthy. McCarthy's position has been weakened. Nobody expects much from the official subcommittee report on the 36-day Army-McCarthy inquiry.
