This article presents information on political developments in the U.S. It is informed that Dwight D. Eisenhower, President of the U.S. is facing a political crunch. In order to uplift the country's flagelling economy, the administration has decided that there would be tax cuts on fire insurances. The administration has also proposed to cut down on defense aid to Europe. It is further informed that America's dispersal of its armies after World Wars I and II were among its greatest mistakes. The temptation in a democracy to let the insurance lapse is almost irresistible.
