June 1953
New Republic;6/1/53, Vol. 128 Issue 22, p3
The article focuses on various political developments in the U.S. as of June 1953. One update reports on the "Hate England," performance staged by U.S. Senator J. McCarthy. The McCarthy Committee asked questions and McCarthy himself underlined the points with appropriate roars of horror as he stoked up a good lynching fire. Another update is on the response given by Defense Secretary Charles E. Wilson at a press conference on the question why newsmen were not being invited to see demonstrations of the new atomic cannon and guided missiles.
