Transcript — '^^^^^•■^^■'■•^^■•^•smammmmmmmmmmm President of the Free Europe Committee, is responsible for the hiring of Socialists who are unintelligent enough to completely lack understanding of the Communist conspiracy — and he is responsible for these policy lines of his Radio Free Europe. Mr. Shepardson grossly misuses the money of American citizens for a work which helps international communism. Knowingly or not, he is one of the main pillars of international communism in the free world. SOLUTION RESTS WITH AMERICANS Contrary to Mr. Shepardson's statements that destruction of the RFE broadcasts would please the Communists and destroy all Western broadcasts to the enslaved East, the removal of the RFE propaganda would clear the way for a real anti-Communist broadcast to the East. Our aim is not to destroy RFE. Our aim is to have it investigated by a legal Committee of the United States Congress. There are two committees which seem completely competent to make such an investigation: the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee of Senators Eastland, Jenner and Welker, and the House Committee on Un-American Activities of Representatives Walter, Velde, Jackson and Sherer. Letters to these men and these committees might cause the necessary investigation. The possibilities of the United States Congress must not, however, be overestimated. The Free Europe Committee and the Crusade for Freedom are mighty, private organizations, and to attack them includes many risks, especially in an election year. Our aim must be to substitute real anti-Communist broadcasts to the East for the Radio Free Europe propaganda, to build up an American radio station which would broadcast American anti-Communist programs exclusively. The Socialists and pro-Communists have Radio Free Europe. The non- Socialists and anti-Communists should also have a radio transmitter, even if only a short-wave transmitter at the beginning. Tmth can be spread with much less expense than the Radio Free Europe propaganda, for the East is thirsting for real truth. As an example: Since January, 1956, Radio National of Madrid, Spain, has beamed 15 minutes daily on three short-wave broadcasts to the Czech countries. While having no responsibility for the entire program, I have written several programs concerning American patriots fighting communism. In individual programs, I quoted speeches of General MacArthur, of Senators Jenner and Knowlaiid, and I pictured the activities of Congressman Walter and his Committee on Un- American Activities. I quoted the Kersten Report, and, for the first time in history, the Czech people heard of Senator Joe McCarthy from the West. A new private committee of American citizens must be built up. A private organization can be counteracted only by another private organization. A small short-wave transmitter broadcasting real anti-Communist ideology to the East could be a start of real anti-Communist activities in behalf of the free world. A true picture must be broadcast of the sly tactics in the East and West of the Communist international conspiracy; the people of the East must hear Facts ALA *odahM,i 'trin i iv *ub„r„ prmiimh.,, ftrre.llloi, yatito, Oe-i-.ihi, the speeches of American patriots art active American anti-Communists. Th1 names of these have already been 8j posed and immobilized in the West. Only in this manner can the apart1! among the slaves of communism * the East be dispelled. This is tin- oOJ possible antidote for the misbegotte1 propaganda of RFE. In this mann« the people of the East will be enable1 to compare both sides and come f their own conclusions regardit U(n whether Radio Free Europe's broajj KnI"^,;! easts, or the new broadcasts repress* eufaul the truth.
