Washington Wire

August 1953
New Republic;8/31/53, Vol. 129 Issue 5, p2
The article presents updates from the U.S., as of August 31, 1953. Somehow it seemed a little unbelievable when Republican W. Sterling Cole, the late Brien McMahon's successor as chairman of the Joint Congressional Atomic Energy Committee, casually reported that U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower and his top advisers were not particularly "alarmed" by confirmed news of the Soviet hydrogen bomb. According to another update, the between-session pop-offs of various U.S. Senators, including Republican majority leader William Knowland, are clear warning that the President may face trouble next year on foreign policy issues.
