Transcript What they're saying . . . a&out R4CTS FORUM Please send me a copy of your Facts Forum program of tonight relative to what the U.S. can do to obtain the release of the thirteen American airmen and other U.S. personnel now being helel ley Reel China. If there is any charge, I shall he more than glad to pay it. [There was no charge.] *1 i'ii see, my husband is one of the 526 men who were captured hut were not returned or u< ..tinted for in any way. He is Maim Charles E. McDonough, CSAF. He was cap- lured by the North Koreans sometime near 1 De.. Till and was then taken by the Red i leitie'se, supposedly to a hospital. He was alive wheel last seen, anil the' man who last Saw hieei is here in the U.S. a eaepteeiee in the AF stationed at George ll'B. California. Yet, last April the government "presumed" him dead. On hoard the plane with eeey liei- band was an AF colonel who was Genera] Vandenberg's personal briefing officer. We had to find this last information out for our- selves; the government would tell us nothing. I have done and will continue to do everything in my power to see that my husband receives the justice and consideration this government owes him hut has forgotten to give. Yes, I am very bitter aheetit it. and I will elee anything and everything- no matter what—I can to help my husband. I am ashamed of this government for covering up a situation which was known when the truce in Korea was agreed to. Thank you for keeping this matter alive and in the minds of the American people. Thank God all Americans are not cowards. Mrs. C. E. McDonough P. 0. Box 123, Glen Rose, Texas Your magazine is truly the most patriotic. sincere, impartial and most American, that I know of. Mrs. Eleanor Everett 5324 Pasteur Blvd., New Orleans. La. I sincerely hope you Bucceed eene- hundred per cent in your campaign to place Facts Forum News in every rVmerican home during 1955. Mrs. R. J. Downing Rt. 4, Box 71, Grants Pass, Ore. The Facts Forum Christmas program carried by WOR-TV on Christmas Eve afternoon was of the same high caliber we bave come to expect of all F^acts Forum's programs. I was particularly impressed 1>> the- way Mr. Smoot stressed the' spiritual values as they affeet our national scene anil onlj wish the program had been carried at an hour when more people were sure' ,i> h?ve been at home to hear and see it. . . . Mt >ienieet i- a verj convincing speaker. ...I certainly wish there were' some w,e\ of getting ANSWERS FOR AMF.lili \\- hack on New *i eerk TV. On account eef the decidedly biased press here, we need these programs more than other sections e.f the country. Mrs. leu el Stagg 320 E. 12ml St.. \, u >,„k. Y V than any of the other orthodox economies. I defy you, however, to get a group of people who are capable of pointing out all of the fallacies which lie embedded in even the first volume of Das Kapital. I don't believe that the average student of economics or the average high school teacher can even understand what it's all about. It's a fanfaronade to my mind — a lot of very mistaken ideas and false conclusions; but since Marx used algebraic formulae of all sorts and the most turgid sort of writing, I don't believe you're ever going to find anybody who is capable of understanding il to the point where he can logically demolish it as it should and can be demolished by the experienced academician. Prof. Hodges: I agree with Prole --m Budenz that communism must be examined critically. We've got to expose the difference between what might be called the human dream — which is the elope- that the people get — as against tin- inhuman reality of the Communist system. And to my way of thinking, it's going to be a very difficult job to Liei the right kind of teaching tools. I pni it that way because we cannot trust the individual teacher. And the individual teacher — even at the high school, let alone the college, level today — is very shy of taking a position which can be easily misunderstood and possibly used to destroy him. There's a real teacher problem. Prof. Budenz: I think this problem is deeper than that. I think that education has utterly failed to prepare the teachers for this greatest problem of our age. Prof. Hodges: I'd like to add that in the period of the 1930's we had a relaxing liberal appeal which has created many of the difficulties, it seems to me, of the 1950's. You have to start out with that in mind and be fair, because you can't expect the teacher to be in revolt against a political climate of the time. And the political climate, as vou know, was that of the Democratic \i-w Deal 'play along with the Red fringe) because that's where this trouble started. Mr. Buckley: I would say that inherent in your remarks is the supreme insult lo the vitality of our society. It reminds me of the statement made by Adlai Stevenson two years ago when he \\a- running for President: "The wonder is not how many Communists there were in the thirties, but how few considering the depths of the depression."' I insist that if our society is not in a position to reject the barbarism of communism simply because it has a depression — however severe it be — it is nothing more than an indication that the teachers again haven't done then job. They haven't inured the people, the students of the United States, to th' blandishments, to the wiles, of such a specious, barbarous philosophy as thi* Now, they did a magnificent job " nazism. Prof. Budenz: Il seems to me th'1 what should be done is to go to the heart of communism — its philosoph) enunciated by its leaders—to use alwa)8 the Communist documents, but to a"' alyze them. Take, for example, the sub' ject of dialectical materialism wheI* Stalin proclaims that the world outlo0'' leads to an inevitable conclusion—'" necessity of conquering the world. N** apparently a great many people have" learned that yet, and some of th°s' people are in very important position5, Stalin says very specifically thai '' forms are to be used by the Coning nisls solely as a screen or cover for lhel illegal activities lo bring aboul Ihe die" lorship of the proletariat. And r how many people still put the Conii"' nists, at least in part, in a camp * reform where they do nol belong'.' Th* is why I think that these three points/' the philosophy of communism, show'1' ils objectives; the Communisl 1'" showing how il is enunciated and w"t il is from time to lime; and the atli"1 of communism toward reforms in themselves furnish the basis for ' analysis. MR. BURT: Should all school* providing courses on communism ^ quire the teachers to take loyal" oaths to the United States? Mr. Combs: Frankly. I don't I any reason for singling out the lca'1'1 as those who must take loyally o* because it seems to I peachment of the patriotism -he' warfa hTht has 1 natior it war ginnir analyt And' oaths.
