Washington Wire

June 1955
New Republic;6/13/55, Vol. 132 Issue 24, p2
The article comments on politics in the U.S. In Washington, it's safe to attack the government's loyalty security program. Why the U.S. President Richard Nixon was out in Chicago addressing the Rotary convention, telling them that the impending Big Four conference could be the world's last chance to settle differences peacefully and avoid a catastrophic war. This sounded nice and momentous and portentous just the way a grave young Vice President ought to talk. The trouble was he forgot that the State Department have taken the official position that the meeting won't amount to much: it is just a casual feeling-out process.
