Summary
Editorial cartoon showing Senator Strom Thurmond, with a "Stennis Committee" briefcase in hand walking out of a spooky castle door labeled "Walkerland." Gremlins and goblins abound in a fresco above the door. The Stennis Committee had called Edwin Walker, a former Army major general who had been relieved of his command in West Germany to testify. Walker, a member of the John Birch Society, charged that the Kennedy administration had a "soft line to Moscow," and that they were jeopardizing the American way of life. Although Thurmond pitched soft questions at the former general, it was clear that he, like other members of the Stennis Committee were not comfortable with the general's point of view.
