If the news he gives out is sensational enough, his name eventually may leak out. But if the individual doing the talking can't be identified in a story, how then can reporters get out to the public the information he provided? They did it in various ways.

According to the agreement, this lies of the free world. The Eisenhower administration was accused pf running its Far Eastern policy into a "dead end through a policy of "bluster . . . saber rattling . . .and bluff.' Stevenson offered a three-point program as an alternative: 1. The United States should consult its friends and uncommitted nations to join in a delcartion "condemning the use of force in the Formosa strait" and vowing tp resist any aggression there pending a final settlement. 2. Russia shpuld be asked to say where it stands and what it wants on the Fprmosa issue. 3. The United Nations general _,_ ... . _. assembly should be asked to con- an attack by mid-April. Some re-|demn any effort tp alter the pre- and tb 'island's Spme of them said flatly Eisenhower had no such information. Some newspaper readers might have gotten the impression Eisenhower himself said that. Other newsmen wrote that "administration sources" said no attack was expected. Several newspapers later said these stories stemmed from James C. Hagcrty, Eisenhower's press secretarj. Then Eisenhower had a public news conference.
