Washington Wire

December 1955
New Republic;12/26/55, Vol. 133 Issue 26, p2
The article presents references to quotes given by various politicians of the U.S. The article quotes what the U.S. Democrats tell about the problems of Ezra Benson. The article further tells the story Presidential Assistant Sherman Adams tells of Coolidge. Also, a good deal of discussion has gone on in Washington as to whether Dwight David Eisenhower really called Averell Harriman "a Park Avenue Truman." The consensus seems to be that he did not because 1) Eisenhower doesn't call names; 2) he would never have thought of this nifty anyway, and 3) he has too much respect for Park Avenue.
