problem is telling the American story in a way that will be believed by the uncom mitted nations now overrecep tive to the Kremlins misrepre sentations This is the job which Edward R Murrow most famous of the TV commentators took on in accepting President Kennedys appointment as director of the United States Information Agency It would seem that with such a choice product to sell the task ought to be simple But alas it hasn1 proved so for either Murrow or his several predecessors Russias propaganda gim micks hoisting a sputnik or or biting a man in space some times appear to create a more favorable impression on world opinion than some of our solid programs of good works for humankind But that may be an illusion because in UN tests we always come out on top Theres a strange

French forces from Tunisian territory The session posed a new test of the Kennedy administrations anticolonial policy Delegates from Asian African or neutralist nations waited to see if the United States would vote for the resolution or if it would abstain as it did on sim ilar proposals before the Se curity Council July 29 Informed sources said there was a possibility the United States would vote for the reso lution but many diplomats be lieved it would abstain One African delegate said unless the United States supported Tunisia it could expect little support from the anticolonialist coun
