HYRC Endorses Conant UMS Plan
Young Republicans overwhelmingly passed a resolution endorsing President Conant's Universal Military Service plan at a general meeting of 50 members in the Winthrop Junior Common Room last night.
Arthur N. Holcombe '06, Eaton Professor of the Science of Government, spoke on the necessity of maintaining a bipartisan foreign policy. In support of him, the group passed another resolution urging the replacement of Dean Acheson by a Secretary of State able to maintain such a foreign policy.
The administration, Holcombe also pointed out, has tried unsuccessfully to adopt Theodore Roosevelt's policy of speaking softly and carrying a big stick. He said that Acheson now has the big stick, but fails to speak softly. This makes the purpose of a cold war, i.e. negotiations, impossible, according to Holcombe.
