Here’s a short excerpt:

PRESIDENT DWIGHT EISENHOWER: Well, I see we’re trying a new experiment this morning.  I hope that doesn’t prove to be a disturbing influence.(6)
PRESIDENT DWIGHT EISENHOWER:明白我们想今天早上的新实验。我希望那不能证明要干扰的影响。

QUESTION: In light of the latest fighting, would you consider that it would be useful to have a cease-fire between Communist China and National China, if that could be arranged through the U.N. or by some other means?(7)

DWIGHT EISENHOWER: Well, I should like to see the U.N. attempt to exercise good offices, I believe, because whenever there’s any kind of fighting and open violence in the world, there is always a — it’s always sort of a powder keg.(8)

I wonder if you would care to give us an appraisal of your first two years and tell us something of your hopes for the next two or maybe even the next six.(15)

DWIGHT EISENHOWER: It looks like a loaded question.(16)
