ABSTRACT
This article discusses some political issues. U.S. is swinging her weight around, using the big stick. Congressmen like that sort of thing. The State Department is supposed to be more popular with Senators now than in the politician Dean Acheson's old-fashioned day. A Democratic victory this fall sounds good, but unless it is really massive the conservative North-South coalition that has run things since well before former U.S. President Harry S. Truman retired will continue in control. Also last week brought the U.S. Treasury's sad announcement lifting its deficit estimate upward to $4.6 billion, an increase of $1.7 billion for the fiscal year ending next July 1.
