September 1955
New Republic;9/12/55, Vol. 133 Issue 11, p2
The article presents political updates related with the U.S. as of September 12, 1955. One of the updates focuses on the declining farm income in the U.S. In 1947, total farm income reached all-times high of $16.8 billion and in 1954 it was down to $11.6 billion. Another update says that democrats like Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson, seem to favor a strategy of conceding U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's re-election, at least tacitly, and then proceeding to campaign for a Democratic Congress on the theory that Eisenhower will need it to put through what he chooses to call his program.
