Uncertainty Abroad

Collins, Frederic W.
October 1955
New Republic;10/3/55, Vol. 133 Issue 14, p6
The article discusses the unhappy consequences of U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower's heart attack on future of American foreign policy. The article describes the chaotic ambience that has developed due to the temporary absence of Eisenhower. It could be possible that the centrifugal forces of the Western alliance will bound to intensify in the degree that the cohesive symbolism of the Eisenhower personality loses strength. Since five more years of Eisenhower lay ahead and that if he did not himself serve another term, his office would pass to another Republican of his choosing and with whom he could have an intimate role as elder statesman.
