This unconstitutional treaty and the others yel to be presented for ratification can deprive the American people of all freedoms given them in the Hill of Rights. This fact and the |iasl de-lri- inenteil executive agreements demon- strati' the necessity for the Bricker Amendment. Mrs. I/. K. Ilslult. Sr. 112 Hathaway, Houston Texas 2nd Award PAPER TIGER To the Binghamton (N.Y.) Press: Those' who fear war with Chinesi Reds should be realistic. The vaunted Communisl army is « paper tiger, absolutely helpless if cha leiiL'iil by ei major power. China's in- dustrial potential is inferior to Switzerland s. and the Chi-lied eiir force lacks facilities to keep it in repair in wartime. Support by the Russians? What good is the Trans-Sib Railway after the firsl H-bomb hits Mukden? Will the Russians give Chou's governmenl supplies which lie cannol pay for? Chou knows half his army would go home at the first shot, the other half would defei i to Chiang when the lawful governmenl returned to the mainland. Settling accounts with Mao and Chou would settle the accounl firmly am finally, in the best traditions of tin I nited States. \inl Khrushchev, having plenty of troubles eit home, would have to sii by and watch it happen.
