What about civil rights such as: voting for the man of our choice, which is denied bv political machines: our right to work, now opposed by labor unions unless we belong to a union; our right to governmental information, which is denied bv executive order: our right to tactual reporting of the news, which has been supplanted bv interpretation of news; protection under domestic laws which has been denied by the UN; the right to educate our children without federal aid; purchase of food at reasonable prices, now unobtainable because farm prices are supported bv lobbyists; and the right to save some income, which is denied because we must support foreign governments. Must Americans do not claim the Firs) and Fifth Amendments because they don't need their protection. They need protection against laws passed bv pressure groups. C. E. Bence 2225 Palermo Drive San Diego, California 2nd Award QUERIES JOHN L. LEWIS To the Boston Post: The recent AFL-CIO merger has brought out interesting and startling revelations which present some $64,000 <|ties- tiims regarding union fund manipulations, etc. Apparently [olin I.. Lewis has demanded that the CIO pay back $1,665,000, outstanding for nearly 20 years, He claims that when he helped Sidney Hill- man organize the CIO, he dumped $7,250,000 of the Mine Workers' funds into the project and he has failed to collect nearly $2,000,000. James B. Carey, CIO, is quoted as sa\ ing of John Lewis, "He's got the second biggest bank in Washington and wants US to make it the biggest." All of which raises questions; 1. Did members of United Mine Workers vote transfer of over $7,000,000 to organize a new union? 2. Will these mergers create dictatorial powers in the hands of a few who would advance their own interests to tlie detriment ol economic and political securit) ot the country? Ulysses J. Lupien 179 Westford Street Chelmsford, Massachusetts 3rd Award COMMIE METHODS FROM WASHINGTON? To the Cleveland Plain Dealer: llu's is regarding your editorial, "Nu of the Problem." You missed the n* entirely. If the federal government is able t establish the principle in agriculture tin governmenl can dictate what crops a11* how much a farmer may raise, that pri11 ciple can also be applied to all otW industries in the country. This princip] if applied to your industry, Mr. Edit1* would be called "muzzling the press That is the nub of the problem. To those of us living on farms in* "nub" isn't the so-called surplus, it . whether an American citizen has the rig to man.nrc his business as he sees fit. y farmers maintain that the Constitute says we do; the Department of Agricl tore savs we don't.
