has ever faced in modern history It is a question of whether Communism will con tinue on the road to expansion or whether the free nations of the world led by the United States will stop that tide of tyranny and expansion from the Kremlin THERE threat and IS no A danger or group of men alone can stem this The only thing that can is the free peo ple of the world of which we bounds You can hear the sabre rattling with vehemence Disunity in a free world is dangerous Communism has an advantage by operating within a circle and from a single com jnand the Kremlin In the free world we stand for free people Seventy nations have to be brought into agreement before the free world can make move We as a country coulc make a decision but we must bring the nations of the free world into unity before we can act The Kremlin can make a decision overnight and have its orders g6 in to effect the nexl morning Our freedom slows u up in this conflict that is go ing on Sen Hickenlooper said that Laos goes
