LETTERS to the EDITORS a*************************** First Award DEADLY ENEMY To the Los Angeles Times: George Meany has often found himself at odds with management, and management has frequently been disturbed by and with the new president of the AFL- CIO. However much they may have differed at times with Meany, the majority of businessmen have no doubts about his patriotic devotion. Meany addressed remarks to the New York Rotary Club which deserve the attention of everv American, especially those weighing the possibilities of profit from trade with the Communists. He said: "Communism is the deadly enemy of the businessman, of his associations and his freedom. There can be no free enterprise without freedom . . ." Obviously, trade with the United States is desirable from the Moscow- Peiping standpoint. Responsible labor and management leaders should recognize, with Meanv, that such trade would help build the propaganda and war machine with which international communism seeks to destrov our countrv and the freedom of its citizens. Walter E. Ditmars 16 Arbor Street Hartford, Connecticut Second Award NO CELEBRATION IN LITHUANIA To the Des Moines Register: On February 16 Lithuanians all over the free world celebrated the thirty- eighth anniversary of Lithuanian independence, but not in Lithuania itself, because in 1940 Soviet Russia occupied Lithuania. During the czarist Russian occupation foreign landowners bled Lithuania. Thanks to America's President Wilson's declaration of freedom for all nations, February 16, 1918, Lithuania proclaimed her independence. On Julv 12, 1920, a Moscow peace treaty recognized Lithuanian independence and self-rule. But thev broke all treaties and, on June 15, 1940, the Red armv occupied Lithuania and the other Baltic states — Latvia and Estonia. These were thc first victims of the international Communist terror. Russians imprisoned, deported to Siberia's concentration camps, and killed more than 65,000 Lithuanians during th' first year of occupation alone. Today there are onlv one-third of the Lithium- ians left. Sooner or later the same tliii'S is going to happen to all countries conquered by Communists. A. Valiuskis 1832 Greenwood Drive Ottumwa, Iowa Third Awvd INCOME TAX A TEMPTER To the Omaha World Herald: Millions of Americans will surely In"* up T. Coleman Andrews (former Unil States Commissioner of Internal ReVCj niie) in his stand opposing the feds'! income tax. It is hard indeed to si|tii'r' the idea with the Constitution. Basically' it pen ih/;.s mid ttivi and incentivt. Taxes today constitute a verv imp"'' taut item contributing to the "cost <* living." When olhrr costs of "overhead" get to" high, a corporation or individual can o something about them and still carry "' by intensified efficiency, but the onlv *n the tax-take can be reduced is to opera" less efficiently.
