The it. Pleasant news vol. 83, no. 12smt. Pleasant Iowa. Iii Ruday evening Jine i ij61 these Days by George e. Kokolsky the visitations the French have not been too Happy that president Kennedy a visit to president de Gaulle was a Halfway Stop on the trip to Khrushchev. Although the de Gaulle journey was announced first the impression is that it is second in importance de Gaulle Doe. Nut like to be second. It is not to the glory of France. This is a a tall matter of etiquette but it is not trivial because a i Tate visit is undertaken to accomplish some major purpose and is usually surrounded by pomp and Circum tunic to make both Host and guest Happy. We do not know what was accomplished by pre Idem Kennedy s state visit to Canada from outward signs nothing m particular w As accomplished. The canadians Are still going their own Way As regards Hod China and Cuba they show no interest in a joint foreign policy with the United states although the two countries Are supposed to be allies. De Gaulle unquestionably wants a larger role for Fiance in nato. I although the United states saved France from the nazi it was the i United suites that has to it Een largely responsible for France s loss of her j Empire particularly indo China in Asia and the african colonies. De i Gaulle is a profound nationalist who will not do anything to weak. In France s moral position in the world. Too what the visit with Khrushchev can accomplish it is possible to1 estimate Kennedy and Khrushchev will talk endlessly and j Power struggle Trujillo went Down with pistol in his hand a week in Washington a Norman Wulf lost nation Iowa Wesleyan Junior Richli discuss his a week in Washington Quot Pio Grani with congressman i red Schwengel left.

So secret were these agreements that no copies of them were deposited in the state department and Secretary of state Hull knew nothing about them. Some documents found in the White House files May be the 1 Mcord. However there have been leaks and some of not All of the documents have been scanned. They Are very bad from an Amor Jean standpoint. When we speak of the russian violations of agr be j merits we do not have All the facts As Long As the Teheran documents remain secret As Long As any of them remain secret. Too in it Mould be Overly optimistic to expect much to come of the Kennedy Khrushchev visit but whatever does occur should be made completely Public. Tile habit of keeping the affairs of the american people from the american people is a dangerous one. Tile Assumption that a Little clique of great minds is we or than the whole american people is untenable i Roosevelt was the great White father who knew everything but when we reach the year 1961.

Presidents since Woodrow Wilson have been anxious to be their own secretaries of state and to advertise themselves As the most Brilliant men in the world when John Hay. Elihu Root and Charles Evans Hughes were secretaries of state they conducted the foreign affairs of their government and the Secretary of state was an outstanding figure in Hie country. Neither Robert lain my nor Cordell Hull was of their calibre. Presidents did not leave this country during their terms of office. The advantage was that no irrevocable arrangements were made such As Franklin d. Roosevelt made at Teheran and Yalta. Even Woodrow Wilson s major Effort at Paris the treaty providing for a league of nations a was rejected by the United states Senate but Roosevelt avoided treaties and while the United states has been faced by a fait a comply on Many occasions.
