Eisenhower sitting at desk w/ microphone in front speaking to camera: I have taken over the duties of the Chief of Staff of the Army from a great predecessor... ...I have taken up this duty at a critical time in the affairs of the nation and the Army. ...we are now engaged in tearing down that Army at an unprecedented rate. At the same time we have commitments in foreign lands, commitments which require military strength. Those commitments were made in good faith to help solidify the peace that has been so dearly won. Very soon those two processes will clash. This is your army and it is your decision as to which course we shall follow. The decision once made, it is the duty of the War Department to carry it out. For my part I hope that we secure that peace.

MCU & CU to camera in office in front of microphone.

23:57:15 In the final analysis success will depend upon the relationships between the United States & Soviet Russia. I do not need to remind you that the question arising not only at London, but also out of almost every news dispatch these days, is what is Russia up to now. I believe we can live together in reasonable harmony if the United States speaks as plainly upon all occasions as Russia does; if the United States just as vigorously sustains its own purposes and its own ideals as Russia does. If we abandon the miserable fiction, often encouraged by our own fellow travellers, that we somehow jeopardize peace if our candor is as firm as Russia s always is; and if we assume a moral leadership which we have too frequently allowed to lapse.

Eric Johnston sitting on couch w/ others of Motion Picture Association looking at papers.

07:29:41 CU Johnston speaks SOF: We will forthwith discharge or suspend w/o compensation, those in our employee & we will not re-employee any of the Ten until such time as he is acquited or has purged himself of contempt & declares under oath that he is not a Communist. We will not knowingly employee a Communist or a member of any party or group which advocates the overthrow of the government of the United States by force or by any illegal or unconstitutional methods. We request Congress to enact legislation to assist American industry to rid itself of subversive disloyal elements. Nothing subversive or un-American has appeared on the screen; nor can any number of Hollywood investigations obscure the patriotic services of 30,000 loyal Americans in Hollywood who have rendered their government invaluable service in War or and in Peace.

But these 14 men in the Kremlin have their hierarchy, & a church of Communist adepts, whose missionaries are in every country in a Fifth Column, obscure people about awaiting the day when they hope to be the absolute monsters of their fellow countrymen & pay off old scores. They have their anti-God religion and their Communist Doctrine of the entire subjugation of the individual to the State; knowing behind it stands the largest army in the world in the hands of a government pursuing Imperialistic Expansion as no Czar or Kaiser has ever done. I must not conceal from you tonight the truth as I see it. It is certain that Europe would have been Communized, like Czechoslovakia, London under bombardment some time ago, but for the deterrent of the atomic bomb in the hands of the United States. Standing applause by crowd & those on platform.

Telenews Daily, The - Symington At B-36 Probe

01:10:08 Secretary of Air Force Symington seated next to AF General at table takes glasses out. SOF: To me the most disturbing feature of these attacks against the Air Force & the rest of the military establishment is what they have done & are doing to imperial the security of the United States. It was bad enough to given a possible aggressor technical & operating details of our newest & latest equipment. In my opinioin it is far worse to have opened up to him in such detail the military doctrines of how this country would be defended. We have now given the military leaders of any aggressor nation a further advantage in developing their strategic plan by telling them so much about our own. I say further, because in this atomic age, the aggressor always has the great advantage of initiative. Your original investigations, as well as the current hearings, started primarily as a result of attacks against the B-36, an Air Force weapon, built to do one of the jobs which were assigned to the Air Force by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. These attacks started many years ago, and are still continuing, but they have been dwarfed by the larger issues raised in this room within the last few weeks. It is now obvious that the fundamental question at issue is control of the military by civilians and therefore the preservation of Constitutional government.

And the Federal Government could cooperate w/ the State & Municipal officials for the immediate installation of certain emergency equipment such as auxillary lighting & first aid & surgical supplies in these structures. The immediate urgent need of municipalities to solve their automobile parking problems by the construction of underground municipal garages can be utilized for the far reaching long range objectives of national civilian defense thru cooperation w/ the Federal Government to incorporate defense measures against atomic bombs & other types of destructive agents in their construction.

The Telenews Daily - McCormick Sums Up 81st Congress

02:26:31 Senator John W. McCormick writing at desk, speaks to camera (SOF): The 81st Congress, the first session thereof, has been a great success in the people s interest. Under the leadership of President Truman we have done a remarkable job. Important legislation in connection w/ our international complications (sic) have been passed which will result in the stopping of Communism in its attempt to dominate the world. On the domesticate fields the outstanding examples have been housing & minimum wage, both designed to preserve the family life of America. The great problem confronting the people of the world, and confronting a large segment of our own people is the question of economic insecurity. Seventy million people in America are members of families that have a gross family income of $3,000 a year or less. This presents to Americans & to the Congress and all legislative bodies a challenge which we must meet! The President s recommendations made in January are for a full Congress which comprises two years. It must be borne in mind that Congress meets again next January & much of the unfinished business of this session will be completed next year. But so far as this session is concerned it has been a remarkable success in the people s interest.

The Telenews Daily - News Of The Nation (Unid statement on US military planning)

05:52:33 Man at desk, speaks (SOF): Russia s position w/ the atomic secrets certainly dictates a rearrangement of our military plans. All planning however must also be geared to the commitments & to the strategy undertaken w/ the North Atlantic Pact & the Armed Aid program. So far as I know, there has been no immediate request for a rearrangement of our military power. I can foresee however a renewed emphasis on our Air Force. Undoubtedly it will be necessary to build our force up to 58 or even 70 Air Groups. Reduction in our military spending can only be accomplished by a true integration of defenses in a mutual defense plan.

05:53:26 It was in anticipation of such a plan that I insisted, & Congress adopted, the principle of integration in defense planning as the condition upon which the bulk of our arms aid to Europe nations will be granted.

06:01:58 Senator, in bow tie, at microphone w/ Capitol behind: No legislation, ever considered by the Congress, has been given the careful thought that the present housing legislaton has been given. Over a period of months committees of both the House & Senate have considered this very important problem from every angle. I feel that the American people after they undestand the housing bill will approve of the action taken by the Congress, taking into consideration of course the problem of slum clearance as it affects the nation. This is not a purely local problem, as some people would have you believe, but because over ? million family have been affected it has become the kind of national problem that local authorities cannot cope with.

The Telenews Daily - Vandenberg Defends B-36 (And Army General Bradley Testifies)

06:17:59 In full uniform w/ medals before microphones in hearing room lights cigarette.

06:18:07 Four Star General reads from notes (SOF): In the performance of my official responsibilities I wish to assure the American people that in the strategic bomber force, as it exists & as its development is planned, they have an instrument that can do the job assigned to it. I further assure them that the Air Force has no complacency within it & is constantly laboring at improving its weapons & techniques. In honesty I must state that the curent episode has shaken the military establishment.

06:18:49 General Bradley replaces him before microphones: Dispite protestations to the contrary I believe that the Navy has opposed unification from the beginning. And they have not in spirit, as well as deed, accepted it completely to date. As a policy yes; but as a final and an authoritative vehicle for planning our collective defense - no. This entire investigation emphasizing for the navy more autonomy of decision & witness to this conclusion. And I believe that this is a most serious matter, one which must be resolved if this organization is to be allowed to proceed effectively. While the whole world relies upon the leadership of the United States as they face a common enemy, Americans at home are offered a spectacle of descension within our own Department of Defense. My philosphy simply stated is this: each service is to National Defense, what each individual is to the service he represents. I would like to assure the Committee, & to the people of the United States, that as long as I have been a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff & as long as my membership continues, every decision in which I participated was, & will be, made w/o bias or at any service or any persons to the best of my judgement, drawing upon my entire experience & long years of service to this country. We Americans want peace, for ourselves & for the rest of the world. We Americans in the Deparment of Defense mean to build that peace & defend it if necessary. I believe that the public hearing of the grievances of a few officers who will not accept the decisions of the authorities established by law, & charges as to our poor state of preparedness, have done infinite harm to our national defense, our position of leadership in world affairs, the position of our national policy, and the confidence of the people in their government. In my opinion the Armed Forces all have a very big & very important job to do & we should get on with it.

09:40:48 SOF Secretary of Navy Francis P. Matthews, in uniform, reading statement before Investigative Committee: History has taught us that a maritime nation that loses control of the sea is a defeated nation. The Navy is the only force that can maintain control of the sea. To do its fleets must be capable of conducting naval campaigns & operations, including amphibious operations, against opposition from air, sea & submarine forces. The Navy can exercise sea power effectively only as an integrated force w/ its components: the submarine force, air force, service force, fleet marine force, amphibious force & all others developed & working together as a balanced naval force w/ common undestanding & towards a common end.

09:41:39 House Armed Services Committee w/ Carl Vinson chairman.

09:41:42 Adm Halsey in civilian clothes, SOF: ...recommend to the committee that they do something about completion of a new carrier. I think we in America are too prone to use the word super . I ve heard this carrier described as a super-carrier. It is not a super carrier, in the sense that it is just a normal development from the carriers that have gone along from the very beginning, the first one when we had the old /? that we converted, we went up thru, built the Wasp & the Ranger which were too small. The first real carriers we had were probably the Enterprise, the Or? & finally the Franklin D. Roosevelt in that class. I think this carrier is just a carry on from that class; and if you will look at plans showing very plainly that there is not as much difference between the Franklin D. Roosevelt & the proposed carrier as there is between the first carrier & the second one we built. The third thing that I would recommend, something you brought up yourself sir, I cannot understand how Congress can appropriate money & have it approved by the President of the United States & have some man stop it.

09:43:02 Congressman: Particularly with reference to the national defense. Halsey: Yes, sir!

The Telenews Daily - Atlantic Union Proposed (Kefauver; Pro & Con on Poll Tax)

09:49:01 Senator Estes Kefauver at desk, looks up & speaks (SOF): Today I filed in the United States Senate a concurrent resolution. This resolution is being sponsored by 17 distinguished members of the United States Senate & also by a group in the House of Representatives. The purpose is to request the President to call a Convention of the Atlantic Treaty to see what further steps they may take to a closer cooperation & federation. The idea of the resolution is to try to bring together all of the elements which must go into peaceful relations & getting along w/ one another for a unified purpose. This not only includes a treaty such as we have & a rearmament, but it includes economic monetary matters, a common foreign policy; and all of the other things which bring people close together. This, I believe, if representatives of these nations can meet & discuss further steps towards federation we can really bring together the countries, democracies, of the North Atlantic into a great group which can work together for the purpose of maintaining peace & keep the world from war for many, many generations.

09:50:32 Congressman Earl Chudoff at microphone w/ Capitol behind (SOF): The anti-poll tax bill is one bill that I am very proud to vote for. In my platform as a candiate for Congress in the 4th Pennsylvania District I told my constitutents I was for President Truman s Civil Rights Platform. Theis is the first of the three bills that will come before the House during this session. The other two bills will probably be a Federal FEPC bill, and a Federal Anti-Lynching bill. There are quite a few members, especially from the South, against this legislation & as a freshman Congressman yesterday I saw my first so-called House filibuster when the Southern Democrats caused seven or eight roll-calls to stop a vote on this particular type of legislation. I can say that one of the bills that I am very proud to vote for & one of my proudest votes will be my vote for this bill when the final vote is taken.

09:51:36 Unid. Southern Congressman in same place SOF: I am opposed to the anti-poll tax bill, first because I consider it to be absolutely un-constitutional. If the Federal Government can determine the qualification of the electors of the various states, in my opinion eventually they can dominate the elections of this nation which would lead to total dictatorship eventually. There are moves behind this program other than removing restrictions for voting purposes. In my opinion the two major parties are making a political football out of this type of program trying to capture the votes of the Negro race in the north & in the eas. In my state we charge $2 per year for two consecutive years for poll tax. This is assessed against all of our people regardless of race or color. The only requirement is that if they pay this poll tax by February 1st for two consecutive years they are qualified electors.

The Telenews Daily - Washington Headlines (NATO Pact Ratification)

11:03:09 Senator John Foster Dulles in front of maps, SOF: The North Atlantic Pact has been approved by the Senate after the full consideration that it deserved. It is a logical extension of the Monroe Doctrine to Western Europe. The difference is that whereas the Monroe Doctrine was merely a decloration that we would fight, the Atlantic Pact binds other countries to fight w/ us. The combination is so strong that it probably will not be challenged & we will not have to fight which is of course what we want.

11:03:48 CU The North Atlantic Pact is a natural supplement to the Marshall Plan which was designed to preserve the free peoples of Europe from collapsing in the face of Soviet aggressive policies. The Pact, like the Marshall Plan, is in our interest because it will keep Russia from coming to the shores of the Atlantic.

11:04:06 MS The Pact does not require us to send arms, although we may later on decide that it is good business to do so. That is a matter to be considered, & being considered further by the House of Representatives and the Senate, and the Congress will later on come to a decision on that matter.

11:04:24 CU Now the fact that we have an Atlantic Pact does not mean that we have to have also a Pacific Pact, but I do believe that consideration ought to be given to stopping the spread of Communism in China & in Asia. It is good to protect ourselves on the Atlantic side but we must not forget that we are also exposed on the Pacific side.

11:04:45 MS The Atlantic Pact is a great step forward in American statesmanship, & it should give confidence to the free peoples throughout the world.

Also we know from press reports that fully modern Rolls Royce jet engines are available to several European countries, including Russia. With this infromation, an aeronautical engineer experienced in the fighter development game has no trouble forming a pretty accurate estimate of the merit of the jets seen flying over Moscow. It is revealing no secret to say that those fighters in combat ability are equal to, or better than, the best in this country today.

11:29:58 MS Navy Commander, Eugene Tatom, head of reserach & development for aviation ordnance, SOF: If we are forced to use the atom bomb we cannot afford to miss. Contrary to popular opinion, the effect of the atom bomb while completely devastating in the immediate vicinity of its burst, is rather limited in the area of its destruction. You could stand in the open at one end of the north-south runway at the Washington National Airport, with no more protection than the clothes you now have on, and have an atom bomb explode at the other end of the runway without serious injury to you. This idea is contrary to the general conception held by most people that the effect of the atom bomb is so wide spread that accuracy in bombing w/ it is not necessary.

Title: Washington Headlines (Congressman on introducing study for defense of Washington DC)

11:32:05 Man at microphone, SOF: The extreme vulnerability of Washington to atomic, or even more traditional, forms of bombing attack has long been a source of deep concern to me. Its obvious that one well-placed bomb might kill the President, all the members of his cabinet, the majority of the membership of the Congress, & all the occupants of the Pentagon. The consequent disruption of our political & military organization would be very difficult to exagerate. The resolution which I today introduced looks to a study of this situation by a special House committee of nine w/ a view to recommending suitable defensive measures. There is no secret about the existence of the problem. But of course the committee would not have to broadcast its recommendations, and it might well not wish to do so.

Title: Allen Appraises Support For Tito (Telenews Daily)

08:10:18 MCU at desk in front of painting, speaks SOF: I ve been asked why I think the United States should support Tito. Let s remember two cardinal points in American foreign policy: first, we support the Independence of small countries & oppose their domination from the outside. In the present quarrel between the Soviet Union & Yugoslavia, the Yugoslavs are struggling desperately to maintain their independence & their freedom from domination by Moscow. In a case of that kind we are on the side of the country that is struggling to maintain its Independence. Secondly, we are determined in our opposition to aggression. If we are to believe not only the propaganda of Radio Moscow & the Soviet propaganda agencies, but the official notes of Soviet officials, there exists at the present time a very definite threat of aggression in the world...doesn t mean that we approve of the government of Yugoslavia. We support independence, and oppose aggression.

The United States desires to support the creation in China of economic & political condidtions which will safeguard basic rights & liberties & progressively develop the economic & social well-being of its people. The United States is opposed to the subjection of China to any foreign power; to any regime acting in the interest of a foreign power; and the dismemberment of China by any foreign power whether by open, or clandestine, means. The United States will continue to consult w/ other interested powers in the light of conditions in the countries concerned & in the Far East as a whole, on measures which will contribute to the continuing security & welfare of the people of that area.

The Telenews Daily - Washington Headlines (Protesting Dismissal of Adm Denfield, Oct49)

05:35:26 Man at desk SOF The dismissal of Admiral Denfield by President Truman yesterday came as a distinct shock; not only to me but likewise I am sure came as a shock to all the American people. I propose to fight this change w/ all the resources at my command. This attempt to close the mouths & stultify the minds pf these distinguished Americans in our Armed Services who are concerned over national defense planning. I sincerely hope that all Americans who cherish the right of expressing themselves freely on public matters will rise together in protest against this high-handed dictatorial arbitrary attitude that far more smacks of the Kremlin than of the Capitol of the United States.

First, expedite the report of the weapons evaluation group in order to determine the military worth of the B-36. Second, literally support the National Security Act & the Key West Agreement on roles & missions of the Armed Forces. Third, support the principal that each service, within budgetary limitations, be permitted to design & develop its own weapons. Fourth, provide the Navy adequate & appropriate representation in key positions within the Department of Defense. Fifth, limit the scope of activities of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to those specifically mentioned in the National Security Act. Sixth, in the present stage of unification it must be recognized that the views of a particular service are entitled to a predominant weight in the determination of the forces needed by that service to fulfiill its mission. The accomplishment of these points will not in itself solve all our national security problems. It will however, go far towards providing a framework which will permit a unified approach to the grave problems of national security. LS of hearing room.

The Telenews Daily - Korean Crisis (Pres. Rhee speaks)

07:48:22 Photographers & cameraman as Koreans come out of ?? & pose in Washington, DC.

07:48:38 MCU of Ambassador ?? at microphones SOF: Now we are only asking for more ammunition, and more arms to fight with. We are not asking for American troops to shed their blood for us. But we are determined to fight & shed our own blood to defend our country, defend democracy & the will of the people of the world.

07:49:29 Secretary Louis Johnson w/ military & civilians around table w/ linen tablecloth & water glasses. Gen. Bradley among them, sitting & posing.

07:49:44 Defense Secretary Louis Johnson at microphone outdoors SOF: The effect of the present attack by North Korean forces will not be known for several days. If South Korea fails to hold it will be evidence of outside assistance. Although we have given military aid to South Korea for a comparatively short time, those in a position to know feels it has been quite effective and that they have made substantial progress in providing for a proper defense.

07:50:32 President Sygman Rhee in front of Korean flag (SOF): They have no reason or right to be there & we believe the forces should withdraw immediately from Korea. They say they have withdrawn but if they have we demand that they should prove it by inviting the United Nations commission to visit that part of the country & freely hold elections under its observation, the same as we have held in South Korea.

07:51:27 Following has Korean visuals from post-WWII over Rhee s speech continuing... I want our friends in the United States to know that we are engaged in the midst of a war, a real war. You people in America call it a Cold War, but our war is a little too hot for us to call it a Cold War...we don t mind however, we are fighting for the security & protection of our lives & property. Sometimes we are fighting for the very life of our nation. So long as all the other democracies in the world are fighting for the same principle they are fighting for us & we are fighting for them. So, we are not fighting alone & in the end we will all come out right.

Korean War Outbreak; 1950;

Note: Pre-19Sep50 when Johnson was replaced by Truman.

The Telenews Daily - Senate - State Dept Liaison Urged

01:27:07 MS Southern Senator, Tom Connally (D-Texas), at microphone speaks (SOF): The foreign relations of the United States have become more & more complex in recent years, by reason of the fact that we have activities in a great many countries. It has therefore appear to me to have the Committee On Foreign Relations subdivided into a number of subcommittees, each one of which will more or less specialize on problems that will arise in some particular area of the world. Therefore I am advocating the establishment by the full committee of eight subcommittees placing upon each of them an experienced & trained member of the committee. This will afford an opportunity for members generally to consult w/ each particular subcommittee about vital questions which they are studying. I have advanced this program on the idea that it will not only improve the study by the Foreign Relations Committee of these intricate problems but will afford contact, more immediate contact, w/ the Department of State while it is formulating exective policies with regard to foreign relations.

Diplomatic Controls; Diplomacy; Cold War; 1950

Title: Lie Criticized By Bridges (Styles Bridges & Margaret Chase Smith; Germany & British Journalist Defects)

02:19:14 Senator Styles Bridges standing in front of Capitol speaks (SOF): The issue of whether or not to seat Communist China in the United Nations is a crucial test of Sec. Acheson s total diplomacy. To seat Soviet China means to expell our wartime ally & long-time friend Nationalist China, one of the very founders of the United Nations. Unless Trygvie Lie withdraws his proposals to seat Communist China in the United Nations, Senator Nolan & I propose that the United States instruct its delegates to the United Nations to move for the selection of an impartial Secretary General of the United Nations to succeed Trygvie Lie.

02:20:08 Title: Sen. Smith Reports On Europe s Fears. Margaret Chase Smith in front of Capitol speaks (SOF): Five days in Florence, Italy attending the UNESCO conference does not qualify me to come back & speak about conditions in Europe; I did come back however w/ the feeling that everybody is living from day to day, living w/ the feeling of fear for the future security. I was more than ever impressed w/ the need for better understanding among the peoples of the world if we are to reach our goal for security & permanent peace.

07:19:36 Man w/ Capitol behind.

In the first place at the International Conference last fall between Canada, England & the United States I believe they made a deal w/ England to follow England in such recognition. It will be remembered that England did recognize Communist China immediately after that Conference. And I believe that it is necessary to have a good old fashioned Spring house cleaning in both the State Department & The United Nations to prevent it.

Ike speaking from podium: ...America seeks strength only because America loves peace. The meeting at Geneva made this clear, a fact that later the Presidents of all the Americas, meeting in Panama, recognized & applauded. There have been clear proofs of our purpose: our plans for world disarmament - programs of atoms-fo-peace - the fostering of world trade & helping other peoples combat poverty and need.

20:31:16 We have, in all this, simply paid attention to some plain lessons of recent history. The are: Weakness invites aggression. Strength stops it. And our determination to resist agression...

20:31:45 My fellow citizens, these matters should always be studied exhaustively & discussed soberly in our democracy. Here again, I must mention what the opposition has been saying only because it is so vital that we all understand these matters clearly. They, the opposition, have urged stout military defense w/ greater reliance on modern weapons, but have advised stopping our atomic tests. They have promised national security & a bold role in world affairs while they urge us to start thinking about ending the military draft.....

(continues thru next to last paragraph of speech) ...of peace and of justice grew steadily stronger.
