September 1952
New Republic;9/1/52, Vol. 127 Issue 9, p5
This article presents information on U.S. Senator William F. Jenner. On September 9, 1952, General Dwight D. Eisenhower will deliver a major address in Indianapolis in support of the candidacy of Senator Jenner. Before he frames his endorsement, the journal provides excerpts from the senator's speech on Secretary of Defense George Marshall. And far worse than his factual untruths is his attribution of treacherous intent to Eisenhower's lifelong friend and sponsor, George Marshall, culminating in the charge that Marshall's purpose in seeking the defeat of Hitler and Tojo was "to destroy the only two powers able to stop the advance of Communist conquest."
