Transcript "■ m ■■ People Must Choose V.P. Mr. trving Edinger, 15 Melvin Avenue, Brighton 35, Massachusetts, is a man with a plan — a plan in which lit' has been able to interest several members of Congress. Mr. Edinger suggests that more thought and consideration should be given to the selection of men to occupy the Vice-Presidency. He writes: The choice should not come about by arbitrary selection, which is contrary to basic democratic principles of this country, but by the choice and vote ol the people. We do not have this privilege today. • ■ • There is no voice and no choice, and it is no better than a Russian election. Mr. Edinger's plan is that delegates at both conventions would select a three-man slate fur Vice-President, which would appeal on the voting ballot. Voters would be permitted to vote for only one man on the slate they choose. Only the slate of the party winning the presidential election would be considered, and the candidate having the most votes would be elected. In tins way the Vice- President can be selected by the popular vote of the people. "I urge the readers to contact their representatives in Washington to do something about returning this privilege to them," writes Mr. Edinger. A Healthy Bite of Jelly Beans According to The Bee of Phillips, Wisconsin, second graders in the city schools, under the instruction of Mrs. \ed Slocum, meet twice weekly for a "ri I Jelly Bean" game, which parallels tbe Sfil.ooo Question program of TV fame. Tbe youngsters have devised a complete setup, including an isolation booth where they may deliberate on the questions in one of the 25 categories provided. Among these categories are spelling, arithmetic, science and reading questions. Mr. Bob Taylor, 1707 P Street, WW., Washington 6, 1). C, who lias sent us this information, suggests that the game might be made still more enlightening for our youth if teachers who wish to adopt the idea were to incorporate the income tax payment on tbe jelly bean winnings. "We have been told." be comments, "that under income ta\ rules a youngster would have to win five hundred jelly beans in order to take home sixty-four. . . . "If the cackling of geese saved Home, who is to say that a levy of jelly beans from \outhtul winners might not save America?" Feeding His Lambs A reader lias forwarded to us copy of a bulletin from the Superintendent of Sayre- ville (N. j.' Public Schools, Mr. H. S. Pollack (Superintendent's Bulletin No. I 1. December 0. 1955 I, in which be advises: We are told, by the State Department in charqe of enforcing the an ti-discrimination statutes, that there is a growing feeling in various pints of the state with respect •<• the celebration of Christmas by special obsen ances and exercises in public school. ... It may he wise to consider, beginning at once. ho» the Christmas Program to he offered in your school could lie re-planned .so as to de-emphasize the sectarian religious aspect thereof and to emphasize instead (lie folklore values. ... It is the opinion of your Superintendent that «ithin the next three to ten years it will he required by the eimrls that the Specifi- Callv religious aspect of the celebration he deleted from public school programs, and that il "ill become illegal to use some of the hymns and anthems that are now quite common, and (hat it will become necessary to avoid pageants in- volving the nativity, angels and similar props. It is suggested that it might be "ell to begin to re- plan tin's program in this direction so that the change-over is so gradual as to he unnoticeablfl to the general public over a period ot years. The question arises as to whether tbe purpose ol such changed emphasis is, as stated in the bulletin, to avoid discrimination, or whether it is part of a much larger plan emanating from tbe Kremlin which would destroy our religious foundations by taking the Christ out of Christmas for our children. Workers — American Style Mailings received from tbe Volunteer Precinct Workers. Cold feather Women of California, Box 2038 South Annex, Van \n>s, California, indicate that an admirable job is being done by this organization in informing others of developments in Congress, as well as local legislation pending, in recommending current literature of informative value to their members. If you would like to plan such a bulletin for any group to which you belong, we suggest that you write to the Volunteer Precinct Workers for a sample copy of their mailings — simple and effective. Orlando J-C Shows the Way Arthur W. Schlichenmaier, 001 Clayton St., Orlando, Florida, writes: Tlie public schools here in Orlando, like most counties throughout the nation, were so o\er- crowded that tlie Funior Chamber ol Commerce decided tm some l.i^t action. Mather than cli.uu- Ulg all (lie red tape of another election to raise school taxes, du- association made a direct "CAN \ Ass BY MAN." to everyone in tlie county, to mail in money for the construction ot new class- rooms! Within -, |<-\\ weeks, thousands ol dollars Were raised, and the campaign is still iii action. The directors -,l CLASSROOMS, INC., have already released more than 110,000, and told the trustees to select 11 j«■ site lor ihe first classroom to be built by the non-profit organization, On the Political Scene Many readers have written to us regarding third parry movements and their activities. However, since il is necessary to work well in advance ol our publication d reailets' reports concerning such organr. tions as For America, We the People, or Texas Constitution Party, have become dated by the time Facts Forum .Veres re.i es publication. It is significant, however, that the F America rally held at Carnegie Hall. M York, on Washington's birthday filled l hall with 3,600 present, despite a practl blackout ol the press, and that 4,000 vJ turned away. All seats were reserved $ sold out weeks in advance as a result ol '■ ters and a word-ol-niouth campaign. Readers who wish information regard* tbe FOB AMERICA movement may reel"1 from General Bonner fellers at LOO] O necticul Avenue, N.W., Washington 0. IX' a copy of FOR AMERICA'S political act* program. Free Men Speak. 7314 Zimpel Street, j Orleans IS, Louisiana, is a publication vm provides excellent coverage on the active of all new party movements. Information regarding WE THE PEOj may be obtained by writing 35 E. Wa^ Dr., Chicago 1, Illinois. 11 l!i Bible Balloon Project For the past four years, the Billy Jfl Ilargis Committee of the International G* cil of Christian Churches has released I numbers of balloons carrying portions ol Bible to the countries behind the Iron t_ tain. In L955, 250,000 portions of the I*'! printed in Czech, Slovak, Polish, RuS* and German wire launched. These cai"r each capable of lifting live portions <» Bible, can float great distances, some ^ as 3,000 land miles. Churches and individuals throughout United States help finance this against communism. Dr. Billy James Ilargis, 1516 So. Rot^ Tulsa. Oklahoma, internationally k" evangelist and radio pastor, who has pct\ ally conducted each of the twelve !**■ ings, in referring to criticisms of this p"'! by the Communist lands, tells us: The claim that the oppressed souls in Coi*l nist lands enjoy religious Freedom is untrue- ^ onlv religious leaders Functioning behind ■ Iron Curtain are Red puppets, stooRi cow, The reports we have received froi nist lands speak of religious persei oppression unlike anything known history. According to Dr. Ilargis, "DistributfJ the Scriptures by this dramatic and method is having a softening effect ^m bard, cruel atheistic control of the b'(l" J tain countries." This conclusion was i''1', based upon information he has re~% from four anti-O behind the Iron acti\ dies. IN 1 f*E "Rig* u«ar Co: Y «««• loi'n MlN °°ES RAD1 Whitr.
