Eisenhower and who has spoken

Nehru believes strongly that his
policy of peaceful coexistence has
eased the cold war. But he is in-
creasingly troubled by the failure
of his philosophy to hold back
Chinese aggression.
Laos, Cambodia, and Viet Nam
felt Chinese military strength ear-
lier in the yea,r and now as Mao's
forces step up pressures on the
north Indian border the focus will
be on a troubled Nehru.

relations have deteriorated.
The mystery of Castro is not

education, and civil rights.
Panama Riots...
Cuba is not the only focus of

Latin American unrest; riots in
Panama have flared repeatedly in
recent months.
Angry citizens attacked Ameri-

bigotry and tyranny in the United
States' actions in the Canal Zone.
The Zone, a ten-mile-wide swath
through the center of Panama, is
operated by Americans. It has
been a trouble spot for years, but

and growing feelings of national-

manent rupture this year.
Steel Strike . .
On the domestic scene the ma-
jor story was the bargaining battle
between the steel industry and the
United Steel Workers union.
Collective bargaining, processes
broke down several times, to be
resuscitated by Presidential ap-
peals, propaganda campaigns and.
finally the Supreme Court Taft-
Hartley Act ruling, sending the
men back to work until late this
In moving for more manage-
ment control over job conditions
and standards, industry apparent-
ly alienated the ordinary worker,
who was believed willing to ac-
cept a break in the upward wage
spiral that has characterized all
American industry since the war..
The workers united behind the
previously unpopular David Mac-
Donald out of concern for jobs.
On the other side of the table,
enjoying full industry support
from the beginning of the strike
sat R. Conrad Cooper, who led in-
dustry to raise wage offers, but
held irrevocably firm on the man-
agement control issue.
The crisis, however, had more
serious national implications, so
the Supreme Court upheld a Taft-
Hartley injunction sending the
men back to work.
The men maay go out again in
January if they vote down the
last industry offer, and to this
date, apparently little progress to-
ward reconciliation has been
Campaigns Open
Perhaps the biggest domestic
story of 1960 began taking shape
in July of this year when Demo-
cratic Sen. Hubert Humphrey of
Minnesota announced his candi-
dacy for President of the United
Humphrey was not alone for
long by December, he had been
swept behind seve;ral others as
political trends began to crystal-
A great many Democrats fa-
vored the Massachusetts Roman

Catholic, Sen. John Kennedy,
while others stuck with Sen. Lyn-
don Johnson of Texas or Sen. Stu-
art Symington of Missouri. But
the twice-beaten image of Adlai
Stevenson reportedly appealed to
a large segment of the party.
The picture on the Republican
side emerged as less confused -
Vice President Nixon was the sol-
id front-runner in most polls,
spurred no doubt by his summer
tour of Russian and Poland.

Christian A. Herter succeeded
the ailing John Foster Dulles as
Secretary of State on April 19.
Herter promised, "I'll do the
very best I can."
His very best was soon chal-
lenged as he flew to Geneva for
the foreign ministers conference.
The foreign ministers agreed
the first object of the conference
was a Berlin settlement which
should take the heat off Central
Europe and allow more relaxed
discussion of more general issues.
The wrangling did not take long
to break out.
As argumentts about seating the
two German governments started,
and then even a dispute about the
shape of the conference table.
As the conference progressed,
though not the negotiations, Her-
ter made Western offers to con-
sider disarmament separate from
a German settlement, in an at-
tempt to clear the log jam.
After eight weeks of conference
both sidse expresssed "flexibility"
but neither could accept the oth-
ers' many plans for solution.
On July 30, the ministers final-
agreed to recess a United States
official commented, "There is no
evidence to indicate there is new
hope for a Berlin settlement.
