THE CHALLENGE

This beig the 19th and final part to the pamphlet, "OUR FOREIGN POLICY 1952":

THE CHALLENGE



WE Americans are traditionally a hopeful peo-ple. That spirit is standing us in good stead today. We do not see ourselves in the grip of circumstances over which we have no control and about which we can do nothing. We believe that a great deal can be done to better the world and that we, in cooperation with other free people, can do it.

Our foreign policies reflect that conviction.

In the foregoing pages we have given a brief summary of those policies and of the steps now being taken to put them into effect.

We believe that the objectives we have set for ourselves are possible for attainment. We believe that with hard work and persistence we can accomplish the tasks before us.

This is a challenge. It is worthy of the great tradi-

tions handed down to us from Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and the other brave and determined men and women who, over the years, have helped mold our Republic. As an American writer recently put it :

"For the high-hearted successor of the men of old there is wonder in being an American, for the bold man there is delight."
