HIDDEN COMMUNISM IN BRIGHT
To the- Des Moines Register:
The Communists have "won" hundreds of millions behind barbed wires
Unaided by machine guns day and
night. There they do not practice segregation — instead they murder everyone, rich or poor, who is not going to
sell his conscience, mind, ancl freedom
to the Communist rape. This includes
those who directly or indirectly helped
them to establish Red genocide.
Loving this country ancl admiring
p freedom I have to say that all meetings with Reds and visits by them are
>n waste. Coexistence with bandits is
impossible. The- Red visits will do
ttiore harm than good to the free
»Vorld. Our own kidnapers, murderers
■Eliel bank robbers go on trial. Are the
International crimes of less importance
than the local ones?

CURB SUPREME COURT'S POWER
To the Miami Herald:
Confusion still exists as to what
'ntei position really means.
Perhaps "Supreme" is an unfortunate misnomer for our high court. We
do not apply the superlative to its co-
Jquals, the administration anel Con-
ess, anel therefore the court seems
Sacrosanct beyond its true status.
There i.s neither defiance nor dish-spec t in appealing from a lower to
•t higher court, and that is what interposition amounts to. It is an appeal to
the people, the true court eif final
■tppeal. to review the- Supreme Court's
decision by constitutional amendment;
^nd. until such review, it strengthens
Hie status epio.
Amendment is the only protection
Bat we-, the people, have against the
hurt's dictatorship. We vote on Con-
ress and the administration, but
lever on the life- appointees of the

To tbe Pittsburgh Sun Telegraph:
Editorials on "hot money" reveal
that foreigners have 26 billion dollars
invested in American industry. This
sum exceeds the gold stored at Fort
Knox, Kentucky. If these foreign investors, many of whom are under the
economic and/or political domination
of the Soviet, dumped their beddings
on the American market demanding
gold in payment, what would happen
to our credit system? We witnessed a
similar catastrophe under Hoover's
Administration in 1932 when over 40
billions in credit were wiped out.
The Nenv Deal Administration enacted a law making it a criminal
offense for an American citizen to own
a gold dollar but there is no law to
prevent foreign investors demanding
gold in exchange for their American
The "hot money" question should
arouse the American people to tbe
realization that our Administration, in
the past ten years, has given 51 billion
dollars to aid foreign countries, the
majority of whom despise us.

To the Boston Post:
When our forefathers came to this
country, they tried to share their harvest ancl their crops with everyone
alike, but they found out that things
did not work fairly under this system.
While some families worked from sunup until sundown, they got no more
for their labors than the ones who sat
Our forefathers saw the light, and
that is when free enterprise was born.
As long as these United States keep
free enterprise, America will remain
free. Free men and women work better, and are a happier lot, than those
under any other system.
This country grew strong on free
enterprise. If the federal government
got out of public housing, bank financ
ing, radio and TV, agricultural adjustments, and other businesses, free
enterprise would benefit, and the
country would prosper, because taxes
could be collected on these various

"The first to die were the two liberals. Called by the warden, they
walked out of the cell crying, 'Damn
the Communists!' Next, one after another, the Left Socialists were taken.
They went forth with murder on their
lips, cursing their former comrades
ancl associates, the Communists."
After escape from prison, and after
participating in many happenings of
historic significance, Sokoloff decided
that Russia held nothing more for
him. In 1920, he made a magnificent
exit from the USSR, quite in keeping
with former exploits, though not at the
time publicized. Told in restrospect,
that part of his memoirs is amazing.
Dr. Sokoloff has achievements to his
credit in the fields of scientific research and of varied writing. As for
communism, he is still asking, "Why?"
Not only that, but he has come up
with a few arresting answers. The
obvious parallel between his Russian
acquaintances who embraced communism and treason to their own detriment, and certain American Communists, pro-Communists, and fellow-
travelers of today, provides material
for serious reflection and discussion.
He tells much of his story in zigzag
rather than chronological style. This
method calls loudly for the index that
isn't there. But the book is a fascinating first-person account of Russia in
