Washington Wire

T. R. B.
October 1955
New Republic;10/17/55, Vol. 133 Issue 16, p2
The article focuses on the political conditions in the United States. It is to the honor of the Luce organization that it still has the capacity to surprise. Last week "Life" carried a denunciation of the Mississippi murder of the Afro-American child, Emmett Till. If Adlai Stevenson becomes President--as now seems not impossible--how will he be different from Dwight D. Eisenhower? It is hoped to see a President who spent more time at his desk. He would read the newspapers. He would know what was going on.
