ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the U.S. politics. From any normal criterion the question of whether the world is destroyed by H-bombs is more important than what happens to the Man from Wisconsin. It develops that the 10-day Mundt committee hearings starting here April 22, and the Geneva, conference dealing with Indo-China, H-bombs, and all those things, starting April 26, will be rival attractions. Meanwhile, every member of the Mundt Committee knows what he risks in tangling with U.S. Senator J. McCarthy, four other Senate committees have each tried it and the hysteria has grown in each case.
