Marshall declared, but he dirt not elaborate. U.S. Reputation Suffers The secretary chained that uti- thirikmg 'Americaiis are damaging "our reputation for integrity of action." "We are inclined, I think, to be extremist, blowing hot and cold, fluctuating between vigorous partisanship or complete indifference as regards the same situation." He said the task of those directing the foreign policy of this country is made difficult by the fjicc that i* necessary to arouse crnu- tianal interest in an hiterniUion.O problem before the "nece.ssjiry political action" can be .secured.
