October 1953
New Republic;10/26/53, Vol. 129 Issue 13, p2
The article presents updates from the U.S., as of October 26, 1953. Victor Johnson, executive director of the Grand Old Party Senatorial Campaign Committee, is linked with fabulously wealthy Texas oilman H.L. Hunt in drumming up talent for "Facts Forum," the TV-radio show. Other newly rich Texans besides Hunt are playing an increasing financial role in support of Congressional die-hards. According to another update, the U.S. Administration has just about dropped the idea of a balanced budget in the conventional sense and will aim for a balanced consolidated cash budget. A good many economists have urged this as a criterion for years.
