Transcript f R :s Ri EADERS KEPOR May Day — The American Way The American answer to Communist celebrations uf May Day has been provided by Mrs. Albert Grande, 913 S. Lincoln Avenue, Park Ridge, Illinois, who in 1954 instigated the observance of May 1st in Park Ridge as United States Loyalty Day. Other towns and cities have followed suit, and in March, 1955, President Eisenhower signed a bill which had been passed by House and Senate proclaiming May 1st Loyalty Day and a legal holiday. Mrs. Grande has written ns outlining the activities of Park Ridge, now known as "the City of Flags," in celebrating this patriotic occasion. Park Ridge DOW has 197 street Hags — the Junior Chamber ot Commerce lias sponsored the sale of three thousand home flags, turning proceeds over to the Retarded Children's I Ionic — five thousand lapel flags were procured and distributed to school children last May Day. "Buy Them — Fly Them" is the slogan to which local newspapers have given the fullest publicity. This year Park Ridge's Loyalty Day ceremonies will center around a flag-burning ceremony depicting the proper method for retirement of tired and tattered American Bags, The program is being planned to include fullest participation of school children since, asks Mrs. Grande, "who ever heard of a youngster (or adult) being delinquent, or turning to anything anti-American or unconstitutional if he feels a depth of patriotic devotion?" Our hats arc off to Mrs. Grande and to Park Ridge, the City of Flags, as well as to the Other patriots whose unceasing efforts have resulted in making May 1st a day for patriotic celebration. Let's all "Buy Them and Fly Them" on May Day, U. S. Loyalty Day! Congressional Gold Mines Mr. C. J. Morrissey, 324 Streamside Drive, Harvey, Illinois, asks that we let our nailers know that the Government Printing Office has recently made available the new Cumulative Index tt> Publications of the Committee on Un-American Activities, complete through January 21), 1955 ( 1111 pages - price, $3.50). lie also informs us that a small reprinting of the report of the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy, S2nd Gdigress, 1st Session, dating from April, 1951, entitled Soviet Atomic Espionage, has been ordered by the Government Printing Office to determine if there is still a public d ■ui.nid for this document. This report, which was out of print tor a half-year, gives information on the Fuchs case, the Crcenglass case, the Gold ease, the Basil \. May case, and the PonteCOrvO case, as well as minor eases such as lliskev and Nelson. (Price from Government Printing Office. 50c.) \ later letter from Mr. Morrisscv mentions that interest has mounted this year in the reprinting of the Dies Committee reports. Appendix I (967 pages) and Appendix IX (over 1650 pages'), and urgently requests that readers write to their representatives in Congress indicating what Dies Committee volumes they need to complete their library files. "Hon, Martin Dies himself states that he « has been unable to locate a copy since his return to Congress," writes Mr. Morrissey. "YotU" immediate interest and assistance arc needed in the drive to gain additional support for the reprinting of these valuable documentary exposes of communism. If nothing else, fight for the reprinting of Appendix IX of 1944 on Communist-front organizations." Americanism This column in September offered plaudits to several newspapers for their printing of the "Primer tor Americans."
