ABSTRACT
The article discusses several political issues from around the world in 1961. Russia is seemed far from ready for a ban on nuclear testing. This created the presumption that Russians were not ready for any other steps toward arms control or disarmament. In New York, Adlai Stevenson is persuading Andrei Gromyko to agree to a shortened session of the General Assembly.
