Transcript I i i * j California Dec/ares Independence Main letters have been received regarding recent Facts Forum News articles relating to our educational s> stem. From the Manchester (N. II.) Union Leader, comes an editorial which tells us that the California Congress of Parents and Teachers have Issued the following official statement: After .in intensive study 'il federal aid to education and .1 rt". tew nl the summaries ol Local governors and White House Conferences on Education, we believe the National Congress (of Parents-Teachers) do longer reflects the thinking <>t this body- Therefore, we rescind our previous action in approving the National Congress' legislative policy. Mrs. Hollin Brown of California, President nl the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, and a member of the White 1 louse Committee on Education, has replied that the California action will not affect national PTA policy unless at least 30 of the state PTA congresses act Likewise. The Union Leader coi rots editorially: The obligation of ridding education of its present dangerous domination is directly related in the presen .tii t Vmerican freedom. Vigorous action in the states can undo the present throttle hold. Let's get to it. Amendment to Limit Income Taxes Only one more state need now approve the resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution limiting federal taxes on income, estates and gifts to 25 per cent except in ease oi war. since South Carolina recently became the thirty-first state to approve this resolution. As mentioned on tins page in March, approval by the legislatures of 32 states is required to allow the consideration of an amendment by Congress, following which ratification by 36 states makes it a part of the Constitution. To keep the record straight, the following states have not yet passed this resolution: Arizona. California. Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Maryland, Minnesota. Missouri, New York. North Carolina, North Dakota. Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington, ,im\ West Virginia. New Study Program Launched Vmerican citizens across the nation are being offered a service to aid them in forming local discussion groups to study the basic principles oi constitutional government.

Towards World Understanding A person-to-person type of world understanding is being fostered by World Tape Pals, now in its fourth year. Harry Matthews, L446 Conner Drive, Dallas, Texas, a typesetting company employee, has spent about $2,000 in the last lew > ears trying to bring about international friendship through tape- recorded messages between individuals here and abroad. There are about 2,000 World Tape Pals in ol countries and their possessions. Once introduced, members mail their tape messages hack and forth between countries, adding to international communication and, they feel sure, to world understanding. Mr. Matthews publishes a paper. Tape Topics, which is free to members and prospects. Since one mailing may reach 5,000 people, there is a $3 annual membership lee for United St.ites and Canadian tape pals. Citizens of other countries are not required to pay dues, hut are encouraged to contribute. No charge is made to handicapped persons or shut-ins anywhere.
