This article presents several newsbriefs related to government and politics in the United States. The first brief discusses Theodore Kaghan, who was considered by most American newsmen on the spot one of the United States' most effective counter- propaganda experts in Europe. His work in Germany and Austria was publicly praised by both Leopold Figi, Chancellor of Austria, and Ernst Reuter, Mayor of Berlin, Germany. The second brief informs about the election of three prominent Negroes to the public office in Atlanta. Their victories were doubly remarkable because each candidate had to overcome special barriers thrown in their way by local bigots.
