The article presents information on various social and political developments related to the U.S. U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower is an attractive figure who symbolizes what the nation wants most, peace and prosperity. The single fact dominating all American politics today is that his Gallup Poll rating is at 79 percent, while only 13 percent disapprove of what he's doing and 8 percent have no opinion. He feels that he has a mission to serve in foreign affairs, and complete Democratic support makes this work vastly easier. Rowland Watts, national secretary of the Workers' Defense League, helped in part by a grant from the Ford Foundation's Fund for the Republic, has just submitted to the Pentagon a nationwide survey showing the effect of the Army's security program on draftees.
