President Eisenhower's News Conference of October 3, 1957
President Eisenhower takes questions from reporters. Most of the questions are about the integration situation in Little Rock, AR. Eisenhower states that Federal troops will be removed when either Governor Faubus assures him that the orders of the Federal court will not be obstructed, or if peace develops on its own. Eisenhower goes on to emphasize that the troops are there to uphold a Federal court order; the fact that segregation is the issue at hand is 'incidental.' Other topics include corruption in unions, the Middle East, the relationship between religion and government, and the budget.
