LETTERS to the EDITORS
To the Los Angeles Times:
This being an election Near, Congress
is reporting oul a hill which will "liberalize" Social Security.
The Congress cannot continue to play-
politics with billions of dollars forcefully
taken from unsuspecting people. Social
Security now holds -I billion dollars in
government bonds (IOUs), with only
about 500 million dollars cash on hand.
Most people think that Social Security
i.s operated like an Insurance company,
with their money going into a special
reserve fund, and when they retire they
simply yet their own money hack.
This is not the ease. Social Security is
a fraud hecanse (1) the money goes into
the Treasury and is being spent for other
purposes; (2) it's compulsory; (3) it
raises (axes and is Inflationary; (4) it
competes with private enterprise, and
(5) it tends to destroy the faith of the
people in their elected representatives.
There call he no "security" based on

RUSSIAN LEADERS PLOT
To the .S'rm Diego Union:
The United States is living in the most
terrible fool's paradise of all time. Those
who think that Russia does not want war
and who tolerate our self-destroying efforts toward an impossible international
Utopia are simpletons. They aid appallingly in the early extinction of themselves
and the rest of ns. It is not the enslaved
Russian people, but their criminal, conspiratorial masters that will launch war
The main- fronts of the Communists
ad\.nice against ns slowly, steadily, inexorably, and according to plan. The finale
Vi ill he military attack.
And we? We make hut puny efforts
toward liberating the enslaved satellites.
We fatuously waste billions. Our defensive efforts an- deficient. And we are
most culpable since we do not even fight
wiih vigor and effectiveness the Communists and traitors among ns.
Let's reject pcacc-al-any-piice and national suicide! Let's save instead individual freedom, free enterprise, national sovereignty, and civilization!

PERIL OF COMPLACENCY
To the Boston Post:
One of the greatest dangers to our
security against the Communists is our
Because we so often hear there are
only about 25.000 Communists in America, we are apt to shrug away the efforts
of congressional committees who are trying to protect us from the evil conspiracy
which will slowly but surely gather us
into its net unless we wake up!
In Russia, only 7 per cent of tbe
people are Communists. Just think —
7 per cent control, persecute, torture,
put tn death, and have enslaved tbe other
93 per cent of the population!
In China the percentage is even
smaller — only 3 per cent are Communists who control the other 97 per cent.
Here on our own continent, in Guatemala, it took only 2.500 Communists to
control a country of 3,000.000!
So beware of complacency! Remember
Lincoln's words. "To sin by silence when
they should protest, makes cowards of

"BIGNESS" A SIN?
To the Nashville Banner:
The current congressional investigation of the Genera] Motors Corporation
raises, among others, these questions:
(1) Is bigness an evil per se? (2) Can
this nation maintain its position of world
leadership if its greatest corporation's
growth is halted or limited in order to
"spread the business" among any and all
If corporate bigness is indispensable in
meeting the challenge of a totalitarian
stale for industrial and scientific world
supremacy, then it would be tragic malfeasance to contain corporate dimensions
in an idealistic effort to help the little

TOO MUCH DEBT FOR A
To the Hartford Commit:

Shrug Off the Federal Debt.'' The spendthrift elements have always existed in
