Washington Wire

October 1954
New Republic;10/18/54, Vol. 131 Issue 16, p2
This article presents information about politics. In 1946 the U.S. Congress passed the Full Employment Act. This pledged the government to keep the economy operating at maximum employment, production, and purchasing power. But unemployment has doubled in a year, production is down $9 billion and personal income is declining. James Reston says that U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower is really running the government from his headquarters in Denver, Colorado. Columnist Doris Fleeson says that no U.S. President in history has spent so much time out of Washington, D.C. with so little apparent evidence that the reins of government remain strongly in his hands.
