May 1954
New Republic;5/10/54, Vol. 130 Issue 19, p3
This article presents various news briefs relating to the U.S. The most exclusive huddles in Washington hotel suites during this year's party meetings talked over possible alliances to capture the Chairmanship. The Democrat sages do not expect politician Steve Mitchell to change his mind about quitting or to encourage a draft. Illinois politicians say that he will return home to become personal manager of Adlai Stevenson's bid for the Presidential nomination and perhaps later to make a personal try for his party's nomination as Governor of Illinois in 1956. Most of the people of Summit, New Jersey, own attractive homes, earn a considerable amount of money and vote Republican, but, as one citizen put it recently, "Republican with a conscience." For a number of years this conscience has found partial expression in an active interest in international affairs.
