Unidentified Teen Boy, Mrs. Roosevelt, I come from Eastern Colorado where the problem of dust storms has been particularly acute. And I d like to know if you think the problem of soil conservation is an important one. Eleanor Roosevelt, I think it s one of the most important problems we have. I think we ve made a beginning and some of us feel that the problem of soil conservation is basic to the problem of conserving our people. Because you will notice that where the soil is depleted, almost always you have a people that have lowered their standards of living. Therefore it is basic to the whole problem of the country.

We hope its proclamation by the General Assembly will be an event comparable to the proclamation of the declaration of the Rights of Man by the French people in 1789, the adoption of the Bill of Rights by the people of the United States, and the adoption of comparable declarations at different times in other countries. Our desire for peace lies behind this declaration. The realization that the flagrant violation of human rights by Nazi and Fascist countries sowed the seeds of the last world war has supplied the impetus for the work. Man must have freedom in which to develop his full stature. And through common effort, raise the level of human dignity."

But, as I am here, I want you to know that no one could not be conscious of the confidence which you have expressed in him. I know and you know that any man who is in an office of great responsibility today faces a heavier responsibility, perhaps, than any man has ever faced before in this country. Therefore, to be a candidate of either great political party is a very serious and solemn thing. You cannot treat it as you would treat an ordinary nomination in an ordinary time. We people in the United States have got to realize today that we face a grave and serious situation. Therefore, this year the candidate who is the President of the United States cannot make a campaign in the usual sense of the word. He must be on his job. So each and every one of you who give him this responsibility, in giving it to him assume for yourselves a very grave responsibility because you will make the campaign. You will have to rise above considerations which are narrow and partisan. You must know that this is the time when all good men and women give every bit of service and strength to their country that they have to give."

You go up to that ridge over there and jump up all of a sudden and say - To hell with Hirohito! And they ll jump up, other people, all around and if you shoot first, you ll get a Jap. So he came by a little while later and the Marine was still looking very gloomy and he said did you do what I told you to do? Yes, sir. I ran up there and I did just as you told me to do. I said To hell with Hirohito and they jumped up just as you told me they would, but they all shouted To hell with Roosevelt!

Eleanor Roosevelt presents her assessment of the Eisenhower administration's efforts to date: "In our domestic affairs we've had a theme song which has been peace and prosperity. For a long time we were told how wonderful everything was. Just lately in your papers I find there is a slight change in that theme song. They are now preparing us for three months of economic troubles... But just at this very moment I understand from the papers that Detroit's paper considers it a disaster area b/c..." mass unemployment among auto factory workers. "The peace and prosperity is perhaps being modified at the moment." Great smile from Mrs. Roosevelt.

Mrs. Roosevelt says, "I think you know it was set up primarily to give information about the United Nations, and it has increased international education... more can always be done... you do need in greater part international education than we have n this country at present." An off-screen reporter asks Mrs. Roosevelt of her assessment of the Eisenhower administration to date. "I would say that as far as international affairs are concerned, we have fewer friends today than when the administration came into power. I should say we have met problems as they became crises. What we did not have was a preview of world situations and an effort to prevent the crises and find answers before you were in the crises. That would be my estimate of what has happened in our international affairs."

The fact is that these laws do not guarantee any right to work. They are clearly and solely aimed at weakening the trade union movement and thus weakening the basic economy of the United States which is built upon mass consuming power. These laws are openly destructive of mature, sound collective bargaining. They prohibit management and labor from signing contracts with unions, which are in the best interest of both the company and the workers. They are clearly injurious to industrial peace."

I should like very much if you could let me have in a few words your views as to the areas of tension & the probability of improvement or further deterioration." Mrs. Roosevelt says she agrees with him entirely. "We've lost friends in many parts of the world."

Adlai Stevenson says, "My own view is that it will not be likely that progress will be made in direct negotiations unless it has been made emphatically clear that the state of Israel is here to stay. That is cannot be erased and that we will not stand idly by and see this creation of the United Nations destroyed. And until the Arab states appreciate that this is a historical fact, it is not very likely that we'll make much progress in negotiations. That has been my view." Mrs. Roosevelt says, "I think had we taken that stand three years, we would now be through our difficulties instead of just beginning them..."
