Washington Wire

March 1955
New Republic;3/28/55, Vol. 132 Issue 13, p2
The article presents information on political conditions in the U.S. during 1955. U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower has dedicated himself to trying to modernize the Republican Party. He was genuinely astonished to discover in two big elections that the public trusts him, not his party. Pro-labor representatives who want a higher federal minimum wage are going to swap votes with the farm bloc which wants rigid farm-price supports, at 90 percent of parity. It is difficult in instances like this to disentangle what is simple political cynicism from what is genuine feeling for consumers under a big business administration.
