September 1952
New Republic;9/8/52, Vol. 127 Issue 10, p3
The article reports that Adlai E. Stevenson has dry wit, courage and audacity. He took the right stand on the tidelands oil issue. He faced the American Legion and smilingly told them where they got off and got away with it. His position on civil rights sounds pretty good. The facts of civilization call for liberalism in America. The voters are ripe for it, and it would be personal folly and national tragedy if Stevenson followed what the station-wagon set call a "moderate" policy. He will find out the facts of life fast enough when and if he gets to Washington.
