Mr. Covins: I would suggest that in- i"'l of casting any impreai hmenl on "' twentieth century, it is evidence eel "' tenacity of the < Ihristian dogma. MR.

Miss Kki.i.t:\ts: I think theoretically thai liberals think they are opposed to communism, hui unfortunately all of the policies thai they advocate are' e'leminu- nistic in nature. I hey mean well ami. believe me. I believe in difference of opinion hui the liberals advocate all of these measures that have been tried before and always lead into the- subjugation of the people.

Therefore, initially, lhe llaniillonian idea that of the Tories was [or the concentration or focusing of power in Washington to hail oul ihe commercial and industrial elements of our country.
