August 1952
New Republic;8/25/52, Vol. 127 Issue 8, p2
This article focuses on the political developments in the U.S. The government announced it will license some shipments of mechanical pencils and fountain pens to Hong Kong for the first time since early 1951. Only small shipments of swords, are permitted, a Commerce Department official said, and then only after a double-check to see that they won't fall into Communist hands. Richard M. Nixon gave reasons why he feels Dwight David Eisenhower will give America the kind of leadership it needs. He's a real down to earth honest-to-goodness American. He uses no polished phrase-making in his speech, just plain English.
