Transcript peaceful Socialist-Communist collaboration] today lives in the hearts of the Czechs and Slovaks." As if there had not been mass murders all over Czechoslovakia throughout the existence of the National Front. RFE's "Time. Men. Events" of October 18, 1952. at 10:15 a.m., told Ihe g I people behind the Curtain that "the conditions of 1945 actually originated in the will and the wish of the majority of the people." New York "Comments mi the International Situation." on \pril 12. 1952. decried the "Communist treason" of February, 1948, by which lhe last collaborators of the National Front were expelled bv the Kremlin's agents. "The Communists," ihis broadcast said, "seized power by means nl' the militia and the police . . . Before this time [i.e., before February, 1948, during tbe entire time of tbe National Front] the democratic politicians bail proved their good will to cooperation [with tin- Communists . . . However] the democratic politicians [the National Front men and today the RFE men] were removed . . ." This is of ionise true, as all of us know, let what sorl of democrats are Communist collaborators who tacitly consent or actively connive at the suppression and murder of political nonconformists? These National Fronters, now employed by RFE, did not discover the criminality of their Communist allies when moderates eunl conservatives were systematically murdered. Only when the Communists pul the finishing touches on the enslavement of the Czechoslovak people by exterminating their own collaborators did these curious free- ihmi fighters belatedly decide that the Kremlin's henchmen were after all poor champions of liberty. \ et whom el" the \merican bosses of Radio Free Europe select for speaking to thc enslaved people eef Czecheeslei- vakia? Not those who from the begin- ning refused to compromise with the Communist tyrants. Thev have preferred to choose such National Fronters as Dr. I'etr Zenkl. Dr. Josef Lettrich. Vaclav Majer, Dr. Ivo Duchacek, and Dr. Jaroslav Stransky. The latter has been offered as a weekly feature attraction. Like Alger Hiss, who s|j|] maintains lhat Yalta was "a good thing." but that the bail Communists unfortunately broke their pledges, these National Fronters claim that their collaborator with the Communists — the so-called Kosice Program— woulel bene been "a "3»<'<1 thing" if only the Communisls had nol proved to be treacherous. Instead of al lent ad- mitting that the Kosice Program was criminal folly from the outset, they still refer to it as an "ideal." In 1955. when the Communists in Czechoslovakia celebrated the 10th anni- versary of the Kosice ProgTam, RFE's "Head and Tail," in a broadcast of Page 16 Marshal Tito, President of Yugoslavia, with Nil Bulganin, during a party at the Russian Embassy programs cited America's support of Tito os proof ficiaries from communism to capitalism. April 5, at 8:15 a.m.. declared; "Communist propaganda appeals to democ- racy, i.e., to il"1 ideals which the Communists have betrayed. On April 7. 1955. at 12:19 p.m., RFE's "We Call the Communist Party" still praised the Kosice government program, "according to which the Czechoslovak people were to elect their representatives in tree emd secret elections. This whitewashing of the Kosice Program is a deliberate falsehood because only four left wing parties then were handed oul licenses by the Communisl masters "bile all anti-Communist parties were declared illegal. The Kersten Committee of the U. S. House of Representatives has pul this sham psychological warfare of RFE in the proper light, by Report No. !!. of December 31, 1951. "Especially the proclamation of the Kosice Program, of \pril 5. 1915." llu- Reporl Steele's on page 17. "opened the door for an unobstructed drive on lln' part of the Communists to seize full power in tbe country." POLICY OF APPEASEMENT Let tbe readers draw their conclusions as they see fit. There is no heller way to expose the intrinsic bankruptcy of Radio Free Europe's policy. It is not the fight againsl communism which these psychological warriors earn on: they stand for appeasement ami reconciliation. Thus, of all people, Konni Zilliacus. the left wing liritish Laborite who has tor years heen ei faithful contributor to publications of the Communist party, was Invited by Radio Free Europe to address tbe Czechoslovak pee.pie. Thi- i- what Zilliacus. in broken Czech, beamed over the air waves to the trans-Curtain slaves, on April 17. 1953, eit 12:10 p.m.: "Noil would enormously encourage ami strengthen those in the West who. for the sake' of reconciliation, would like to meet the Soviet Union and tbe people's democracies ball' way if you were to re- una \\a.iee.3 k ikita Kroschev (left) and Russian Premier r in Belgrade. A commentator of Radio Free that America would not endeavor to turn if habilitate those of the Prague tn* arc slill in prison, and clear tin' n" of those who died or were' killed • Zilliacus here did not refer W anti-Communist victims. He spo* such Communists as the Secretarf eral of the Czechoslovak (a'in1' Party, Slansky-Salzmann, who ha» subjected to one of the inteiTJ purge trials and put to death b) religionist, Stefan Rais, then Comi*"""'1 ■ fri I it IK Minister of Justice. Not anti-l"**,2-l nists. but the arch-Communist S"ok l> Salzmann and bis confederates ""ed It be "rehabilitated" for the sake <*"■"""' conciliation" with the Communist* is the sort of psychological "m-»ii RFE has been propagating. I , nfjL In ilell" Milos Vand champion of Red causes, said ol*. , 12. 1953, al 3:05 p.m.: ". . . as I^J the Soviet Union fails to prove by . that she is in earnest in her * ^ .' desire to put an end lo thc cold ,Jur the hot war. she cannot expeel may diminish our efforts to lil'er thc oppresseel peoples." One week later, on tbe samG Table Discussion" program, a 3:05 p.m.. Vanek said: "First Communists make peace with '"fp,,,, people. They ought to resort t" means in their internal poliev. '"J,,.,.,, We- might as well ask wolves al a- e'Jld lb V s\ pur el.ll I, '[/"I'll'. tnf>" « >' >cre 'jeiiee devouring lamlis. and hyenas ^ r into doves of peace.
