It appeared clear that the Presi dent opening a fiveday campaign tour taking him to the West Coast was swatting indirectly at the Stevenson call for termination of the tests under certain conditions Peace Theme Echoing a world peace theme tie has sounded before in his drive or reelection Eisenhower asked Why the anguished cry of some politicians these days that we have made no gains whatsoever toward the peace we seek The plain truth is that Americans know very well the difference be tween the days of the Korean casualty lists And Americans have not for gotten those other around the our road to peace Austria Trieste West Ger many Guatemala Panama Cara cas and Geneva Are these anguished politicians really trying to bring Americans to believe that our nations voice is not and power mutual under standing and justice We are do ing exactly that in the Suez prob Presents Question And then the President put this question Can these politicians believe that Americans are blind to the strength and persistence of our efforts to dedicate the to the to the con structive service of our civiliza tion The President crossed the Mis sissippi River to Minneapolis after making his first
