The fact that the Soviet Union does not have an lioro- 'ogical industry emphasizes the strategic implications of the Russian trade offensive. If the United States is suc- Cessful|y to carry out its role in the w'°rld, we must act with more consistency. We must realize that we ean- n°t combine political internationalism With economic isolationism. end Defenses (Continued from page 17) *™opment of a 1,500-mile missile are J^e, it would not materially affect the "•lance of arms power.

At the same time o ' yuarles expressed confidence in t, superior striking-power of our Air resident Eisenhower had much the le "'action to sources available to the two Democrats when he answered to a reporter (and I am referring to Senators Symington and Jackson), said the President, "Well, I'm always astonished at the amount of information that others get that I don't." He concluded the discussion of guided missiles and misguided Senators, and I repeat that again, he concluded the discussion of guided missiles and misguided Senators by saying, "I think over-all we have no reason to believe that we are not doing everything that human science and brains and resources can do to keep our position in a proper posture." As long as we have men of the caliber of President Eisenhower, of George Humphrey, Charles Wilson and all the others that surround the President, running the show, our country need not be at all apprehensive of our defenses, irrespective of what some Democratic politicians have to say to the contrary. end Mail Basket (Continued from Inside Front Cover) which creates interest but leaves the reader confused. There is little reward, during these times, fur profundity unci substantial effort for the security of our form of government, but . . . much for perversion and inroads upon our security. W. C. Vernon Route 2, Box 227 Perris, California Il serins to me that Rene d'Harnoncourt protests too much Miss Pels' accusations against communism's perversion of art with respect lo painting. He has completely lost sight of the over-all principle of shrewd variables in the various assaults of communism, depending upon the type of country concerned.

The steps are as follows: 1. Infiltration of publicity sources and critic groups, as well as institutions concerned with all manner of culture (not just painting alone). 2. Ridicule and defamation of character of the individuals concerned with, and the works of, the old masters of painting, sculpture, music, literature, and all forms of true culture, including architecture. 3. Substitution of a "contemporary form" in any style whatever, so long as it is utterly and crudely opposed to the accepted standards of earlier forms of culture. 4. Constant press agentry dwelling on the merits of the "newer" and more "realistic" contemporary form. 5. The last step before conquering and control, arrival of utter confusion among the uninformed as to what actually constitutes true culture in any of the older arts. In other words, discredit, destroy, substitute, create confusion. Our people are now in a state of confusion as to acceptable culture in music, painting, sculpture, poetry, architecture, and literature of all forms. A. R. Silvester Box 54 Princeton, New Jersey What our so-called society has to fear is not tlie artist or his production. It is the criticism, conjecture, and opinions voiced by people who are trying to use his product to suit their own purposes. Ballyhoo! I would like to suggest that we look for good and not ill in all people's efforts. Criticize not motive always, but lack of workmanship and laziness. Let us find good in the beauty and design of pictures . . . appreciate the expertness of good draftsmanship. I'll take modern, cubist, impressionist, or academic art and find something good in each field. And I'd start tomorrow to work toward trying to excel in any of these if I thought there were a practical possibility of developing in it so I could make more money, and so make everything nicer and easier for myself and all around me. John Carey 10218 Collctt Avenue Granada Hills, California My suggestion for correction of the present effort favoring modern art is that community-sponsored art shows divide the gallery—one wall for art based on natural rules, the other wall for art of unnatural, inventive rules, with awards in each of these two categories. This is fairness of an American kind. And it would encourage artists to paint, again, pictures favorable to the American way of life.
