LETTERS to the EDITORS **************************** First Award 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"! Elizabeth Lippitt 2414 Pacific Ave. San Francisco, Calif. Second Award MORE TURNCOATS 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? Leslie A. Shaw 122 East Avenue 45 Los Angeles 31, California Third Award U. S. SOVEREIGNTY IS THREATENED 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 UN employ. Mm. James T. McElwS< 5298 West 15th Ave. Miami, Florida 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 ing slave than be a dead lice man.
