LETTERS to the EDITORS
To the Los Angeles Times:

at odds with management, and management has frequently been disturbed by
and with the new president of the AFL-
However much they may have differed
at times with Meany, the majority of
businessmen have no doubts about his
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.

Russians imprisoned, deported to Siberia's concentration camps, and killed
more than 65,000 Lithuanians during th'
