CU President Eisenhower speaks:-"My fellow citizens tonight we greet with prayers of thanksgiving the official news that an armistice was signed almost an hour ago in Korea." FCU.../.Soldiers, sailors & Airmen of 16 different countries have stood as partners/beside us thru out those long & bitter months. American thanks go to each. In this study we have seen the United Nations meet the challenge of aggression, not with pathetic words of protest, but with deeds of decisive purpose. It is a proper that we salute particularly the valorous armies of the Republic of Korea, for they have done evenmore than prove their right to freedom." SV....And as we do so we shall fervently strive to ensure that this armistice will in fact bring free people one step nearer to their goal of a world of peace."
