Washington Front

November 1957
America;11/16/1957, Vol. 98 Issue 7, p186
The article deals with the U.S. government's alleged deliberate or negligent shutting out of Americans from knowledge of Russia's scientific progress. It notes the discovery made by a reporter that American editors have never seen medical journals from the Soviet Russia, and if they did, would not know how to translate them. Congressmen have reportedly opposed President Dwight D. Eisenhower's interest in sharing atomic and missile knowledge with the free world because of fear that Soviet Russia would know about it also.
