October 1955
New Republic;10/24/55, Vol. 133 Issue 17, p2
This article presents the U.S. political updates as of the year 1952. Every Presidential candidate needs a Brain Trust, and Adlai Stevenson had a good one, but he also needs men with practical political Savvy and a knowledge of first names. There was little co-ordination between the Truman cavalcade in 1952 and the Stevenson trips. The Democratic Party deserves a candidate who can give a literate answer to that question. It was surprising to find out how many reporters in 1952 secretly favored Adlai Stevenson.
