Washington Wire

April 1955
New Republic;4/18/55, Vol. 132 Issue 16, p2
The article presents information on political conditions in the U.S. during 1955. Great Britain and Canada have in effect already spoken that they will not support the U.S. in atomic war. At a press dinner, U.S. politician Edward Corsi, who is a big, outspoken Republican was quite frank about his job. He in the 1952 campaign promised foreign-language audiences to revise the "un-American" Walter-McCarran Immigration Act but hasn't been able to do so. He got through the three-year "Refugee Relief Act" which is a flop.
