This article presents information on the political and social developments in the U.S. Senators George McGovern and Paul Newman have been selected as public delegates to the United Nations' disarmament conference. McGovern developed his view about international tensions when he was advocating the election of Henry Wallace as President. He holds the U.S. responsible for the cold war. According to the author, anyone who believes that, and goes to a disarmament conference, is not likely to look after the interests of the country.
