Transcript love eif country and allegiance to flag. Hui it is ei thinking which recognizes our wider responsibilities. I refer to the responsibility of keeping America al peace by helping to keep the world al peace. I refer to the responsibility of making sure that our own Stars and Stripes shedl never be replaced by the Red flag, by helping oilier national ban- ancf Whom... iU.N.? ners to keep flying—safe and secure irom Red aggression. Here, in this heartland of America, you in ihis audience eire giving the twentieth century answer in word and deed to those of our countrymen who '""'■ siill daydreaming in lhe nineteenth, rn the eighteenth, and the seventeenth centuries. You give the true answer to those "ackward-dreamers who still mistakenly think that we can or should ignore 'he realities of the atomic-hydrogen ■'"'". in iliei-r who mistakenly ihink we ''•in isolate ourselves from the dangerous 'fends of our times: lo those who mis- 'akenlv think we could live in a misnamed "Fortress America" all hy our- selves, ignoring the fate of mankind. NEW REALITIES OF THE ATOMIC AGE Il is strange indeed lo hear these daydreamers spe-eik aboul the United Nail's as allegedly surviving in isolation.

We must import 100 per cent of our tin; 92 per cent of our cobalt; 60 per cent of our tungsten, and so on down the line. To make a single' M-47 lank—a single United States tank—we need 1.900 pounds of chromium, of which 100 per cent is imported; we need 950 pounds of manganese, of which 93 per cent is imported; 520 pounds of nickel, of which 99 per cent is imported, and similar high percentages with regard to bauxite, copper, and other strategic products. How, we ask, do the isolationists think we are going to make our M-47 tanks and our bombers and our tankers Underwood A Underwood I I I L
