Transcript IT is always a pleasure for me to leave Washington and travel, meeting with the people and discussing our national problems. I believe fervently the strength of our nation resides not in the capital but in the vast expanse of our country. Empires are represented by. as they are governed by, their capital cities. Free countries are not divided into a capital city and the provinces which are ruleel by it. In my state of Indiana we still believe the United States is a union of sovereigns, and our state is in every respect the sovereign equal of the federal government. There is no deference in Indiana to the glamour and show which are now so evident in Washington. We believe that we. lhe people, govern the country, and Washington is the front office, part of the administrative headquarters. I am sure that doctrine will sound right and proper in the state of Texas. It is a favorite argument of the col- lectivists that foreign policy is something remote and abstract, which can be understood only by experts who have spent years in the precincts of the State Department or on the staffs of certain daily papers. Congressmen, who have not had the benefit of long indoctrination in the mysteries, and you. who do not even breathe the air of Washington, are supposed to sit patiently and wait until the great minds have handed down what you may know. Americans never accepted such nonsense. Our greatest diplomatic achievements were the work of laymen, who had spent most of their years in private life. In the lust few years we have been bewildered and bemused by foreign relations experts in Washington offices, but the moment has come when the American people need to decide what kind of foreign policy they wish to stand for. and then tell our government to follow it. President Eisenhower's message on defense of the Nationalist stronghold on Formosa will certainly be a landmark in American foreign affairs, but whal kind of a landmark it will he is not yet certain. First let us look at the documents themselves—the message of the I'resi- de-nt. emd the resolution of Congress supporting the President's position. RESOLUTION REAFFIRMS TIE In the words of the message and the resolution, the Inited States reaffirms its close lies with its loyal ally, the Nationalist government of China, and makes a commitment to defend the Nationalist stronghold with American military power if the Communists carry oul their threat to attack it. This statement does not solve all the problems of our foreign policy in the Western Pacific. Page 2 Let's PM Photo bv' ■ nderwood 4 W"*
