Latest Barometer Reading: Fair and Stormy

September 1955
New Republic;9/12/55, Vol. 133 Issue 11, p7
This article focuses on several newspaper stories highlighting the international relations between the U.S. and Soviet Union on the issue of disarmament of nuclear weapons. Applying tit-for-tat, the U.S. State Department ordered the Hungarian Legation in Washington to stop distributing Hungarian information sheets in the U.S. immediately. This was retaliation for the arrest in Budapest of 12 Hungarian employees of the U.S. Legation, and Communist police interference with Legation visitors. In another story, Senator, George W. Malone of Nevada, a leader of the Republican right wing, exchanged toasts with Soviet bigwigs.
