April 1955
New Republic;4/4/55, Vol. 132 Issue 14, p2
This article focuses on political developments in the United States as of April 4, 1955. Secretary of the U.S. John Foster Dulles has created a situation where America's honor and prestige are staked on defending two miserable coastal islands, closer to the mainland than Sandy Hook is to Manhattan, without allies, without the moral support of the United Nations, and with the actual disapproval of most of the Western World. Bernard Baruch came from the White House reporting that the U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower had good-naturedly told him he had never heard about the squirrel deportation order until it had happened; it was all done without his knowledge.
