California: Four Feet? One Pair of Shoes

Roper, William L.
September 1954
New Republic;9/27/54, Vol. 131 Issue 13, p11
This article reports that U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's flat, firm rejection of Senate Majority Leader William F. Knowland's demand that the United States break off diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union over the shooting down of an American patrol bomber was one climax in the fight. Much will depend upon how the Soviets behave during the next 18 months. More U.S. diplomatic failures will weaken the President's position. Looming behind this maneuvering on the national scene, however, is the huge California delegation, some 70 strong, to the National Convention.
