The article presents information on various socio-political developments around the world. Francis Biddle retired as National Chairman of Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) at the close of its Sixth Annual Convention last week. Published in the "Sunday Times," Rebecca West's articles on McCarthyism appeared as an effort to clear up British misunderstanding. In another development ADA recruited for its National Board some of the best minds of U.S. President Harry S. Truman's administration, including Arthur Altmeyer and Thomas Finletter. Altogether, the 600 delegates proved that the high spirits stirred up by the 1952 campaign have not flagged.
