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
'trin i iv
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. There is no doubt as to \vW Pa>w,.'
the opinion of the people will be. H»e,,,„.
There are enough real anti-Comn"
nist leaders from the East in Amerifl
Germany and other countries of t"
free world. They can work, and the
want to work. They can also give»
the Americans the real material ab<"'
the Communist system in the East, rn*
terial which is now being suppress*]
Indeed, the American patriots a&
not get along without this material-'
order to fight international cornljj
nism, it is absolutely necessary fl
they know also what the Commujjj
system in the East looks like, anil t'1,'

are now under the Communist tytfl

who have fled from Communist W
Private German and European
dustry will join in this fight, but ■£
initiative is up to private patriot
and active American citizens.
If our aim is the abolishment
communism without war, we 0)
choose this road, and we must s1
