(applause) No government can innoculate its people against the fatal materialism that plagues our age. Happily our people, though blessed with more material goods than any people in history, have always reserved their first allegiance to the kingdom of the spirit which is the true source of that freedom we value above all material things. But ladies and gentlemen of the Congress, a government can try, as ours tries, to sense the deep aspirations of the people and to express them in political action at home and abroad. So long as action and aspiration, humbly and earnestly, seek favor in the sight of the Almighty, there is no end to America's forward road. There is no obstacle on it she will not surmount in her march toward a lasting peace in a free and prosperous world.

MCU John Foster Dulles speaking to camera after recent 4 Power Berlin Conference: `First, as far as Europe was concerned, we brought Mr. Molotov to show Russia's hand. It was seen as a hand that held fast everything it had including East Germany and East Austria, and also it sought to grab some more. Secondly, so far as Korea and Indochina were concerned, we brought Mr. Molotov to accept a resolution which spelled out the United States position that Red China might, in these two instances where necessary, be dealt with but not as a government recognized by us. You may ask whether or not it was worthwhile to go to Berlin and make that great effort at that conference involved merely to obtain these results. My answer is yes. And I have no doubt about that. Berlin cleared the way for other things to happen. The unification and the strengthening of West Europe may now go on. In Asia there could be a unification of Korea and an end to agression in Indochina if Red China wants it. I do not predict that these things will happen what I do say is they could not have happened if it had not been for Berlin.'
