Ban on Nuclear Arms

September 1955
New Republic;9/12/55, Vol. 133 Issue 11, p7
This article focuses on the ongoing United Nations (UN) disarmament talks in New York. During the first week, the U.S. did not tell the Russians that it is no longer willing to consider a plan for the total elimination of nuclear bombs. The impression grew that if the Soviet Union is to make a major disarmament concession, it would not choose to do so at the present closed subcommittee meetings, but would prefer either the klieg lights of the UN General Assembly meeting opening September 20, 1955 or the Foreign Minister's meeting opening October 27, 1955.
