Transcript of side Dr. Milton S. Eisenhower was a member of the National Council in 1952. OFFICIALS HAIL AND GREET Secretary of Stale John Foster Dulles. in ihe fall of 1952. sent a congratulatory telegram to the Atlantic Union Congress meeting in Buffalo. Mr. Dulles praised the idea of Atlantic Union, but suggested that NATO he used as the basis for fashioning the contemplated international state. In December, 1951. Presidenl I i-in- liower senl greetings in an Atlantic I nion meeting, stating lhal his interest Was official eis well as personal am! thai am cess was certainly worth maximum effort. Obviously, there is great power and prestige behind Ihe drive toward Atlantic I nion. We cannot dismiss the propositi, in lightly. Socialists. Hence, the government of Atlantic I nion would, inevitably, be a Socialisl government. Atlantic I nion woulel place the defense, foreign poliev. etnd atomic energy program in the lianels ol Socialists who have a long record of affinity for deals. appeasement and sellouts to lhe Kremlin. Atlantic Union would control our foreign trade' etnd our currency—that is. our whole economy. Atlantic I nion woulel e'stetblish common citizenship and control all immigration. The Communists of all the NATO countries would have free access lo America. And if there weren't enough Communists in thc Atlantic 1 nion countries lo accomplish lhe complete destruction of a free America, more could he imported. —Wide World Photos At left, tanks and guns from the U.S. were lined up on flat cars along a wharf at Istanbul. The military equipment was part of American aid to Turkey intended to build up that country's defenses. At right, American tanks for Russians arrived at Murmansk under Lend- Lease. \\ hiil would our membership in Atlantic Union do io American independence? It would as the Atlantic I nion people [hemselves admit, eliminate America's ""dependence. That's the purpose of Atlantic Union. testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1950. the president of Atlantic Union ('ommittee— former Supreme Court Justice Owen J.

Is there anv doubl lhat our taxes would be- determined according to the Marxist formula, "From each according lo his ability; lo each according to his need"? Just how well would American taxpayers fare at the hands of the representatives of bankrupt Socialist countries of Europe? For years European Socialists have been financing llieir public doles wilh American foreign aid. They are desperately afraid that penny-pinching Americans might some day lire of keeping them up. If the Socialists of Europe could get us in- volvi'd in a governmenl wilh them, they could make us finance their folly eiml our own desl nut ion.

SOCIALIST SHADOW LENGTHENS 'lhe black shadow of totalitarian slavery which is cast by lhe Kremlin eunl which is inching ils wetv over thc entire earth i- et Sn ialisl shadow. The Soviet governmenl is a Socialisl govcrn- nienl. Nowhere on earth is there any strong resistance lo the cancer-like spread of socialism excepl in America, where our massive strength rests on our free institutions, our strong tradition of individualism ami persona] freedom, and our slill comparatively free economy. Advocates of Atlantic Union claim lhal onlv our governmenl would sur- render sovereignty thai we the people would give up none.
