ABSTRACT
This article presents developments related to the field of politics and society. Senator Estes Kefauver has hit the hardest bump of his presidential race on May 6, 1952 in Florida. His opponent is Senator Dick Russell, one of the ablest men in the Senate. The A-bomb has come to the battlefield. The explosion of the latest one at Yucca Flat, Nevada, blew old-fashioned, big-scale surface war out of the window. Allies of the U.S. are bitter about the boosting tariffs. Belgium has retaliated by a counterboost, Holland will follow and so will others.
