ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the policy of the U.S. for the "Geneva spirit." The seeming about-face of the U.S. Government reflects a change in psychology rather than policy, for a careful review of the past five weeks will uncover not a single policy change, either Russian or American, on any issue discussed at Geneva, Switzerland. The barriers have been partially relaxed for the movement of people and ideas, and deportment of officials has been more polite, but no significant policy change can yet be credited to the Geneva spirit. This conclusion applies to disarmament, despite the announcement by the Russians that they are cutting back their ground troops by 640,000 men before the end of the year, and a similar announcement by Czechoslovakia that it is cutting 34,000 from its army.
