The President declared, however, that Americans must prepare "very coldly and very carefully" against the danger that power-lov- ing men in the Kremlin might "in s fit of madness or through mis- calculation" plunge the world into a hydrogen-bomb-age holocaust. Eisenhower went on all radio and television networks in a re laxed, half-hour plea for a sober facing of the atomic era facts o: a fervent warning agains; the perils of "jitters'- and hysteria over Communism, investigations oj Communism or the threat of de- pression.

We can stand up and hold up our heads and say, Ameri- ca is the greatest force that God has ever allowed to exist on his footstool. As such it is up to us to lead this world to a peaceful and secure existence, and I assure you we can do it." In a plain effort to soothe some of the controversies boiling in this country, and to quiet H-bomb nerv- ousness abroad, Eisenhower broke some new ground in this mainly off-the-cuff address delivered while relaxing against the edge of a desk in the White House basement: He said the than congressional the hearings today on a big tax re- President Eisenhower, arms folded and seated on the edge of his desk in his White House broadcast room, posed mo- mentarily prior to starting his radio broadcast Monday night.
