New Republic;4/27/53, Vol. 128 Issue 17, p5
The article analyses the speech of U. S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. It reports that the greatness of the speech lay in Eisenhower's assumption Of world leadership. It further adds that weakness of the speech was that Henry Wallace or Dean Acheson, who delivered it, could not commit this nation to the responsibilities and the restraints for peace like the President. It further adds that the combination of arrogance and isolationism which dominated Republican attitudes in opposition is absent. It describes the weakness as the challenge it presented in the framework of the Crusade.
