On the House side, the show of the week was in Sol Bloom's Foreign Affairs Committee. With a black thimble on his right index finger, Chairman Bloom clicked & clacked for order while Henry
Wallace explained why he thought EGA was a weapon of U.S. imperialism, and a failure to boot. After Wallace read his ten-page attack on U.S. policy, committee members had their innings. Sample dialogue:
Q. Mr. Wallace, do you believe that Communism is a threat to the world?
A. ... I preach the Christian doctrine of tolerance.
Q. You appear to see no immediate danger in Communism as a threat to peace.
