The Name Is Still The Same

October 1953
New Republic;10/12/53, Vol. 129 Issue 11, p7
The article presents information about the Point Four program initiated by U.S. President Harry S. Truman. Foreign Operations Administrator, Harold Stasgon has predicted that Point Four program will have been made over in the image of the new administration. Under the program, more than 3000 technicians were sent to places where agricultural methods have not changed for last 1000 years and where less that one third children born survive their fifth year. The present plans for Point Four reflect the administration's intent of subordinating all other objectives to immediate strategic gains and a lowered national effort.
