completely dom inatcd foreign policy thai he represents it and it is hard to think of anyone else coping with the crisis coming up in Gei many The second reason has prompted Assistant Senate Dem ocratic Leader Mike Mansfield lo urge Dulles lo remain in his cabinel post lo give guidance on the upcoming German situa tion The policy followed by Dulles and President Eisenhower was the one laid down by President Truman and Secretary of Slate Dean Acheson THIS WAS to surround the So viet Union and Red China with military bases and alliances and make no concessions or very few J At the root of this policy there has always perhaps been a certain amount of wishful think ing hat if a ring could be kept tight around the Communist world in lime il might weaken suffer drastic internal changes or perhaps disintegrate Its a wish that hasnt come rue The man credited with be ing the author of this contain ment policy back in Achesons day George was then head of the Stale Depart ment planning
