Transcript -<• " to processor, i.s slowly but surely becoming an agent of the government. If we are to keep the camel on the outside, all of us with a stake in the private enterprise system must realize we are under the same tent. Mrs. Waits H. Cameron, Sh. Route 1, Box 39 Blount Springs, Alabama CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS IN PERIL? To the Palo Alto Times: Several state legislatures, including California's, have urged repeal of all treaties and agreements which make possible the trial and imprisonment of American servicemen overseas by foreign courts. These legislatures stress that servicemen subjected to foreign trials do not enjoy privileges guaranteed by our American Constitution. Now, another class of American citizen is being stripped of its constitutional rights. The Supreme Court has extended military law to cover more than 250,000 civilian dependents stationed with armed forces in 63 foreign countries. The Court ruled that civilian dependents overseas are not constitutionally guaranteed a jure trial and other legal safeguards enjoyed by civilians at home. Instead, they are subjected to military courts-martial. Has the day arrived when an American can no longer say without fear of contradiction, "I demand my constitutional rights?" Robert L. Dax-is 518 Governor's Lane Stanford, California Let's Not Get Complacent (Continued from page 27) tactics but not in basic Communist doctrine. Neither is the stated desire for friendly relations with capitalist nations a contradiction of Soviet doctrine. In the past, Soviet leaders have mouthed desires for peaceful coexistence and have promoted peace offensives whenever it suited their purposes and they needed time. It is logical to assume now that Khrushchev, as was true with his predecessors, hopes to divide, confuse, and weaken the opposition to communism throughout the world. Through such a policy Soviet Russia would gain time in which the vast Communist empire now developing could entrench itself and gain greater economic and political cohesion. Khrushchev undoubtedly seeks, through this new tactical line, to develop the seductive, peaceful coexistence program throughout the world into a nonresistance movement as it relates to Communist aggression. In conclusion, the recent developments appear to us to be changes in tactics and not in basic Communist doctrine and objectives. The latter remain the same — to establish a world Communist society to the exclusion of all others resulting in the destruction of human dignity, ancl the subjugation of man to the state and all states to the Kremlin. Were it otherwise, were Khrushchev sincere, long before now, he and the present so-called collective Page 62 dictatorship would have availed themselves of the opportunities provided at the "Summit Conference" and since to evidence their sincerity by deeds rather than the usual empty words. The Communist mind has so defined its world that it shares neither truth nor logic nor morality with the rest of mankind. If, in ruling out certain courses for Soviet policy, we attribute to them reasons like our own, we are making a fatal error. If we assume that our own policies and statements convey the same meaning to them as to us, we are certain to be mistaken. Any policy aimed at an "understanding" between the Soviet Union and the United States is based on a total lack of knowledge of the ultimate Communist objectives. The Soviets may be able to "understand us in a concrete contempt, but an "understanding" — even in a hostile sense — as the basis of a sustained reciprocity of policies is something we cannot expect. Peace in the sense of international order based on a minimum of common values, ancl the ensuing restraint of national aspirations is not possible with an adversary who basically rejects the very right of other societies to exist. The greatest danger threatening America today is the complacency of many of our citizens and people throughout the world in the midst d inexorably rising peril. enp ENTRY BLANK Facts Forum News Essay Contest October 15 — December 15 'HOW AMERICA CAN BEST EIGHT COMMUNISM" h s M Name Please Print Street or RFD Post Office Parent or Guardian Date of Birth County State Age Last Birthday Thi, will certify that I perianal Iy composed th* enc/oied et say.
