LETTERS to the EDITORS
OVERDOING FOREIGN AID
To the Indianapolis Star:
Doctors are worried about the
"stooped'' posture of Americans. A few
more years carrying foreigners on their
aching backs and Americans will be walking on all fours!
The federal debt is nearly $300,000-
000.000, so this year's foreign aid of
$4,500,000,000 means they're picking the
pockets of generations vet unborn.
Out of 165.000,000 "'stoops," only one
man, J. Bracken Lee, courageously announced he won't pay another tax to
support foreigners. Governor Lee should
receive the Congressional Medal of Honor, but when the "great Humanitarians"
finish with him, he'll onlv be eligible for
the "Purple Heart"!

To the Chicago American:
We are hearing a lot, and will hear
more, about "turncoat Americans.''
But why stop with the GIs? Why not
include all Fifth Amendment pleaders?
Why not include the men who sent
American boys into a UN war in which
they were denied the right to win?
Why not include those who accepted
the Status of Forces Treaty, by which our
draftees in foreign countries are deprived
of their rights as American citizens,
though State Department employees who
go voluntarily, and receive greater wages,
are cloaked in American protection?
Isn't it time Americans put their ethical
and moral codes back into working order?

U. S. SOVEREIGNTY IS
To the Editor:
Recently three United Nations officials.
none of them Americans, sat in judgment
on the right of the American government
to ad against four United States citizens
employed by UNESCO who were
deemed disloyal or security risks.
The foreign trio told the United States
it had no control over its own citizens.
I'll,- ruling of the IX tribunal vindicates
the action of the American Legion in refusing to accept a whitewash report for
UNESCO. If there is anvone who does
not believe the UN threatens America^
sovereignty or that the organization lS
often utilized as defense for communisfl1,
he should look into this case.
Thus, it is now UN law that the U. ?'
has lost all jurisdiction over its citizens aj

GRANDMA'S POINTED EARS
To the Kansas City Star:
I agree with Mr. Batzner that it is ""j
enough for the American Legion to ut»
Congress to quit UNESCO. Our sloji
should be to get America out of tin' "'
and get the UN out of America.
We (aim,it afford to argue ourseh*
into the belief that it is belter (o be a BJ

tan only have peace at the price of s ,

precious thing we have known, the11
comes too high.
