I was homesick to see this home that was built for SACEUR and his staff, an agency of NATO.

Within the last fifteen years our nations have freely granted political independence to 20 countries with populations totaling 800 million people. Within our societies we manifest, so that all can see, the good fruits of freedom. Those fruits do not consist of materialistic monuments, which despots have always have been able to exhibit. They consist of providing the simple things all men want - the opportunity to think and worship as their conscience and reason dictate; to live in their homes without fear; to draw together in the intimacies of family life; to work in congenial tasks of their own choice, and to enjoy the fruits of their labor. These are the most precious manifestations of freedom. And we have the collective power to defend and spread that freedom. Freedom has not failed us! Surely, we shall not fail freedom!” 01:05:16 Delegates standing, mingling & shaking hands w/ Ike. 01:05:33 NATO flags; scenic views of Eiffel tower from Conference building seen thru fountain spray; statues; fountains & building from street. 01;06:02 Montage: Horse team plowing field; skyline of London’s Parliament buildings above Thames River; Paris traffic; New York City aerial; Montreal ; Athens & other cities of member countries.
