MS former first lady ELEANOR ROOSEVELT smiling, seated at table for press conference in Los Angeles, California. MSs Eleanor Roosevelt seated at table with Democratic presidential candidate ADLAI STEVENSON (Adlai Ewing Stevenson) for press conference. 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."

MS/CUs former first lady ELEANOR ROOSEVELT seated at table for press conference with Adlai Stevenson in Los Angeles, California. 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.

Adlai Stevenson speaks to Eleanor Roosevelt, saying that "we have been losing ground in the Cold War. The world is in a more disturbed situation now than it was a few years ago... 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." "That is one of the things we need badly: the feeling that we are ready to listen and learn as well as have some answers."

MSs former first lady ELEANOR ROOSEVELT seated at table with Democratic presidential candidate ADLAI STEVENSON (Adlai Ewing Stevenson) for press conference in Los Angeles, California. Eleanor Roosevelt says Israel and the Middle East is the most dangerous point in 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..."

MS former first lady ELEANOR ROOSEVELT seated at table with Democratic presidential candidate ADLAI STEVENSON (Adlai Ewing Stevenson) for press conference in Los Angeles, California. The two discuss civil rights. Mrs. Roosevelt says, "I think the Supreme Court decision has given our minorities a hope that one of their great opportunities, the opportunity of education, would really be open to them. But naturally any person who really studies the situation know that that opportunity can only come as other human rights are recognized and accepted."
