The article focuses on the foreign policy and political developments prevailing in the United States. A committee on international policy of the non-partisan National Planning Association has issued a report on the Administration's foreign policy. The committee wants a whole lot of economic aid and urgently calls on the Administration to stop talking and start acting. Also, U.S. president Dwight David Eisenhower has called Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) as "creeping socialism." The goal was to undercut TVA. Furthermore, the article also gives information on Army Assistant Secretary Hugh Milton's histrionic actions at the Henings Senate Subcommittee on Constitutional Rights.
