Transcript LETTERS to the EDITORS *•••*••*••••*••••••••••••••+ HIDDEN COMMUNISM IN BRIGHT RED VISITS 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? A. Vai.ivskis 1832 Greenwood Drive Ottumwa, Iowa 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 Supreme Court George [. Rawlins P. O. Box 14 Islainiirada, Florida Iacts Forum News, December, 1956 'HOT MONEY' 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 holdings. 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. Robert W, Maheh 36 Walnut Street Uniontown, Pennsylvania FREE ENTERPRISE 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 doing nothing. 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 things. Mrs. Susan F. Reilly 16 Norwood Avenue Somerville 45, Massachusetts White Nights (Continued from page 31) realize now that it was all a fraud — that they wanted power anel nothing but power.' Again ancl again, they discussed among themselves the ignominy of their own conduct, which had helped to bring disaster to their country. "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 upheaval. end Any book reviewed in this book section lor any other current book) supplied by return moil, postage prepaid.
