Transcript Contrasting Views on President Eisenhower upon his return from the meeting; at the Summit reviewed in this report to the nation the accomplishments of tbe conference. Also presented are excerpts of a later speech by the President before the American Bar Association in Philadelphia in which he elaborates further on results of the Big Four meeting. Secretary Dulles and I. with our associates, went to the Big Four Confer- ence eit Geneva resolved to represent as accurately as we could lhe- aspirations of the American people fnr peace, and the principles upon which this country believes that peace should be based. In this task we had the bipartisan. indeed almost the unanimous, support of the country. This fact greatly .-Ircngthened our hand throughout the negotiations. Our grateful thanks go ■ mt to all your senators and your congressmen in the United States Congress. Aside from this we had during the pa-t week thousands of telegrams of encouragement and support from you as individuals. Along with these came similar telegrams from great organizations —church organizations, business and great labor organizations. A11 of these combined served lo make us feel that possibly we were faithfully representing the views that you would have us represent. Now peace and the pursuit of peace involve many perplexing questions. For example, justice to our neighbors, and small. Freedom and security for all these nations. The prosperity of their several economies and a rising standard of living in the world. Finally, opportunity for all of us to live in peace and in security. Now. naturally, in a study of such questions as these, we don't proceed recklessly, we must go prudently and cautiously, both in reaching conclusions and in subsequent actions. We cannol afford to be negligent or complacent, but we must be hopeful. We must have faith in ourselves and in the justice of our cause. If we don't do this we will allow our ^Lapifc T WJ% 9 *• U -Wid« World Photo History-making Foursome. Left to right, Soviet Premier Bulganin, President Eisenhower, Premier Faure and Sir Anthony Eden, own pessimism and our own lack of faith to defeat the noblest purposes that we can pursue. Now because of the vital significance of all of these circumslama-s they will be exhaustively surveyed by our government over a period of many weeks. Tonight the most that I can give to you are a few personal impressions and opinions that may have some interest for you and certainly have some value bearing on the outcome, and on the process of those negotiations. Of course, an interesting subjeel thai could be taken up had I the time, would be personalities—the personalities of the several delegations, their relationships or apparent relationships one to the other, the principal considerations that seemed to motivate them. These all would have a bearing on this problem. but I forego them and lake up instead just two general opinions in which I am sure every American shares. The first of these is that we must never be deluded into believing thai one week of friendly, even fruitful negotiations can wholly eliminate a problem arising oul of ihe wide gulf thai sepa* rates so far Easl and West, a gulf as wide and deep as the difference between individual liberie and regimentation, as wide anil deep as the gulf thai lies between the concept of man made in llie image of his God and the concepl of man as a mere instrument of the state. Now, if we think of those things we are apt to be possibly discouraged. Hut I was also profoundly impressed with the need for all of us to avoid discouragement merely because our own pro- posals, our own approaches and out own beliefs are not always immediately accepted by the other side. On the nighl I left for Geneva I appeared before the television to explain to you what we were seeking. I told you (Continued on Pu^e 12) Page 6 FACTS FORUM NEWS, October, 1955
