An award of S10 will be paid for each letter selected by our contest judges. SLOGAN: An award of $10 will be paid to the person who, in the opinions of the contest judges, submits a slogan superior to the one currently appearing in the magazine. Until such a slogan is received, the present slogan will be continued each month.

Questions for the contest must not contain more than 72 characters, including spaces. Questions will be judged for their current interest, fairness and conciseness. Keep questions "unloaded." Questions must be worded so that they can be answered "yes" or "nei." QUESTIONS FOR TV PROGRAM: Mail questions for use on Reporters' Roundup-TV to: P. O. Box 26. Washington, D. C.

"I think that there has been some misunderstanding on their part in this instance," he stated. "I notice that they are- under severe attack for holding so many of their congressional meetings in executive session, but I think everyone would realize that there are certain aspects of government involving security matters which must be kept confidential. We- don't want to telegraph our punches tei the- enemy, you know!" Mr. Brownell was asked if the. United States should advocate a "new look" in American policy towards Page 62 Soviet Russia, as suggested by Senator Ellender because of the so-called peaceful aims of the Soviets. "Well, I would say there," Mr. Brownell replied, "that the Administration's position on this is that at all times our policies toward the Soviet are under keen review. They are never static. Each new development in the relationship of the- Russians to the Other countries of the world brings about a new situation which has to be re-examined so that the policy of thc Administration is tei have- a dynamic and ever-changing approach to meet the- current problems which are raised by the international Communist conspiracy." "Would you recommend the Internal Security Act of 1950 be amended to cover non-sensitive as well as sensitive employees of the United States government?" asked Mr. Hurleigh. Mr. Brownell replied that that had been advocated at the last session of Congress. However, he pointed out that rather than tbe Internal Security Act, the so-called Public Law 733 applied. Asked, finally, if a state does not comply with the Supreme Courts order to integrate the school system, what measures slWt of force it was intended to use- tei enforce the courts decision, Mr. Brownell referred to his previous remarks. "As we saiel a little earlier on this program," he reminded, "the current steps being taken by tbe Department of Justice- are- to support the school boards like the one in Hoxie, Arkansas, which has gone ahead and integrated the- schools in compliance with the Supreme Court decision." ENP Read Before You Sign A western professor passed an interesting-looking paper among his students, ostensibly asking for a holiday on a prominent American's birthday. Forty students readily signed the- paper without Hiving it more than a passing glance. When the professor read the document to them, they discovered that they had signe-d a petition Ie> have their right arms amputated. Thereafter occurred a lecture hy the professor on "Read before yoU sign." Patriotism Not Passe I think you will concede that in some intellectual circles the- very word "patriotism" has become anathema. It lS frowned upon as old-fashioned and somewhat ridiculous. Now it is axiomatic that a nation is as strong as its i-connim is healthy and tt its people are- unified. Such a nation Is hard tn heat, either by force uf arms Ot by infiltration. That is why there-has been a long, covert, intense campaign to mal-e patriotism a nasty word, an absUT"* archaic concept. For only if it can weaken Din patriotism, and thus our unity, can communism defeat its mightiest oppom'" tin United States. - Robert C. Ho-u Assistant Secretary of State Fascts Forum News, December, 1956
