December 1953
New Republic;12/21/53, Vol. 129 Issue 21, p5
This article presents information on views of Dwight D. Eisenhower, President of the U.S., regarding the control and development of atomic energy. It is informed that the new conception is the first major proposal in world affairs originating with the Eisenhower Administration. It is a declaration of policy by the leader of the non-communist nations on the most critical problem they face. It is, supposedly, an alternative to the atomic arms race. However, it is entirely unclear whether the President's new conception is offered as an addition to the old conception, or in its place.
