Transcript Editor's AM Basket on FORTY-EIGHT GUARDS Thanks for the article on interposition. Excellent! States' rights has indeed become more than a regional problem. Incidentally, Russia is puzzled and stymied as to how to take over such a country as the United States. They couldn't just take the central government and governmental "head" and thus get all, because the states are in the way. Let's guard tlie deterrent — states' rights! L. V. Cleveland The Highway Magazine I [enniker. New Hampshire HOME-ADE You would be doing a great service to Americans if you would print a copy of the inclosed petition, which is being circulated locally. It is to be hoped that from the reading of this petition others will be impelled to seek their congressmen's willingness to further new Civil Defense legislation. This petition is based on testimonies offered before the Senate Subcommittee of the Government Operations Committee, headed ably by the Honorable Chet Holi- Beld We, the undersigned, do not believe that Civil Defense is a purely local issue. We believe that an attack on an American city would be an attack on the United States, and that Ch U Defense should have an equal standing with the army, navy, air force, marines, and coast Euard. So. we hereby petition for federal funds for Ch il Defense, to he allocated proportionately accordint: to target area population, and, that such legislation be passed as shall provide for the recommendations made for survival before the Government Operations Committee's hearings on Civil Defense. \'.\ elyn M. Smart 149 Eustis Street Roxbury 19, Massachusetts FAN (applauds) FARE I believe that the condensed article of Cecil Palmer's meat hook, The British Socialist Ill-Fare Slate, is one of the most important ever published in this nation. I can only hope that it has the widest circulation. It should he read by every legislator in Washington and every labor leader as well. Congratulations to you for your foresight in choosing this subject for publication. Adolphe Menjotj 722 North Bedford Drive Beverly Hills, California DISPLACED PERSONS I have heen reading with interest your articles on foreign affairs, and would like to call attention to what is happening at our feet — tlie plight of the American citizen who, through misadventure or consolidation of companies, is forced to look for another position, and is fifty years of age or more. These men and women are quite often the heads of families, are buying a home, or are preparing children for college, and quite often have small resources at their command. The bitterness aroused by the refusal of corporations to employ these middle-aged can only be imagined. R. C. Phelps 1707 Church Street Galveston, Texas ATOM BOMB YEAR 11 As a retired science teacher of twenty- five years experience, I was interested in Mr. Schlichenmaier's letter, in your issue of May, 1956 [a Readers Report item which told of Classrooms, Inc., a citizens' tin id- raising project to solve the classroom shortage in Orlando, Florida]. It is fine that an appeal could be made to Classrooms, Inc. But in Atom Bomb Year 1 I, when we are falling behind Russia in our output of scientists and technicians, there also should he Laboratories, Inc., Drawing Rooms, Inc., Observatories, Inc., and Greenhouses, Inc.

[HonOree was Mrs. John Benedict Brine, 94, shown at far right.] Instead of the birthday cake. Facts Forum magazines were passed around — discussion and spirits rose high. A good time was had by all.
