September 1953
New Republic;9/21/53, Vol. 129 Issue 8, p2
The article presents information on various socio-political developments related to the U.S. When a nation has a vacationing President it is wise, perhaps, to look at U.S. Vice-President. Richard Nixon has been busy recently. He met the President's airplane the other day to report on possibilities for the Supreme Court vacancy. He returned to Denver to canvass the choice of Secretary Martin Durkin's successor. The crucial point in the Durkin-U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower talks on changes in, the Taft-Hartley Act came when some opponent "leaked" the Durkin version to the press.
