This article presents several briefs related to political developments in the United States. The first brief informs that the United States Administration's reply to the damaging Wisconsin-New Jersey bi-election defeats is a retreat to McCarthyism. This presents a very ugly situation that requires cool handling. The second brief discusses the issues raked up by Attorney General Herbert Brownell's speech. The third brief analyzes the United States president Dwight David Eisenhower's trip to Canada and the political scenario in Canada.
