^Greatest Secretary’
Eisenhower Lauds Dulles
Letters to the Editors
Editors, The purpose of this organization,
WASHINGTON, May 5 (A 3 ) —
President Eisenhower praised John
Foster Dulles today as the greatest
secretary of state in his memory
and sharply rejected talk of a maj
or U. S. diplomatic defeat at the
Geneva conference on Asia.
No- one, the President said, can
count a battle lost while it is still
going on.
Pledging unqualified support for
Dulles, who flew back from Geneva
yesterday, Eisenhower told his
news, conference the United States
will eontinue to Work for a collec
tive security arrangement for
southeast Asia.
Duties’ efforts to obtain united
action to stem Communism in that
area have so far been unsuccess
ful. For one thing, the British de
cided to wait until the Geneva
conference on the future of Indo
china and Korea is over.
Eisenhower declined to take the
view that Dulles has suffered any
defeat. As for the Geneva confer
ence, now nine days old, the Presi
dent said it “has produced no sur
prises. The expressed fears of some
have proved unfounded.”
Obviously answering congres
sional critics, Eisenhower said in
his formal statement that the Ge
neve conference has not been a
fivepower session-with Red China
sitting as a full-fledged member-
as he said “the Soviet Union, tried
to -make it.”

Concerning the recent organi
zational meeting of the “Young
Democrats Club,” there are some
points which should be pi-esented
for consideration in 'connection’
with the organization and the pur
pose for its establishment at this
As was pointed out previously,
this group is associated with the
liberal element of the National
Democratic Party. This liberal ele
ment is the “Americans for Demo
cratic Action” group of new-deal,
fair-deal, left-wing pinks and poli
tical trash that have made resi
dence in our national government
for the past twd decades.
As a requirement for member
ship in the “Young Democratic
Club,” one must pledge his support
thereto. This in itself is contrary
to one of the reasons advanced for
the formation of the oi'ganization:
viz. “so that the students can be
gin to formulate their own political
The liberal element is not at all
interested in individual ideas; only
the party ideas (which consist of
the wishes of the leaders of the
“Americans for Democratic Act
ion”. Be the party Democratic or
Republican, no previous commit
ment on the part of anyone should
influence a person’s vote or choice
before or after that person has
given fair consideration to each
party’s candidates and platform.
It is true that it matters little
whether the organization is Demo
cratic or Republican if the state
ment is qualified by excluding the
liberal element of the Democratic
party. However, to say that this
type organization, such as has been
initiated, is to promote individual
thinking is nbt only ridiculous, but
an insult to any person who sub
scribes to individual thought.
A prime example of individual
ism was the Shivers-led support of
the people of Texas for the Re
publicans in the past presidential
election. This was the manifesta
tion of the weariness of the people
of Texas for the decadent as
sociation of scoundrels in our na
tion’s capital.
which is anti-Shivers, being in
stituted at this time is not ob
scured in the smallest sense in view
of the coming gubernatorial pri
maries. Never-the-less, a close
scrutiny of the policies and prac
tices of this organization by every
one would render it ineffective as it
now stands, I am certain.

The Battalion:
It would be a fitting gesture to
the memory of George Pfeuffer,
and to the oldest standing building
on the A&M campus, if the corner
stone of Pfeuffer Hall could be set
in a small brick monument at the
site of the building, which is now
being razed.
A brick mason could erect it in
a few hours, and would certainly be
worth the small expense.
