Transcript Editor's AM BaAtet ^TVr> Communism Defined You nun be interested in my definition ut communism. Communism is a Marx-inspired, Moscow-directed, international conspiracy of lawless men against civilization, based on a God-denying philosophy of Life, sustained by faith in the dialectic, backed by the devotion of fanatical believers and the might of the Red armies. J ami-is I). Bales Bible Department Harding (College Searc) . Arkansas A Pat on the Head Whenever a friend disturbed l>y the perils endangering our nation says, "But what can 1 do about it?" I answer, "The first thing you can do is add yourself to the group of well-infonned, sound-thinking, and sound-talking alert patriots. Anything von do must start with your being informed. Head documented material from reliable sources. Gel the facts." The article. "What's the Hullaballoo About Mental Health?" (July issue), is a good example of comprehensive tactual presentation ol a subject. In tin's piece the "who. when, where, what" of good reporting is augmented by background material, projection into future effects, and a masterful correlation of events, all this plus a flair for interesting presentation for good measure. If reprints of "What's the Hullaballoo About Mental Health?"* are available, please send me copies to mail to friends. Lou vim Dakes 3915-A Buena Vista St. Dallas 1. Texas 'ED.'S NOTE; li i. regretted that reprints of llii, article art- nut available In date.] "Of, By, and For" Attributed To Webster I have read with interest (lie June issue of Facts Forum News, and particularly tin- article entitled, "Interposition." The three views of those who are lor, those who are against, and the moderates, are well presented and summarized in the article. Today, most of us are so busy with our respective daily activities that it seems well-nigh impossible to find time to do any fundamental reading — so tar as the fundamentals of our government an- concerned. I do not know whether this is true of editors. In anv event, if you haven't had time to re-read Webster's reply to Hayne within recent years. I would like to be presumptuous enough to suggest that you devote a leisurely and delightful evening re-reading what is perhaps the greatest speech ever delivered in America. It is an amazingly up- to-date analysis of many of the principles involved in our present day problems — particularly the problem of interposition. It is likewise a powerful reminder that in our democracy all power resides in the people and not in federal or even state governments. Incidentally, it is interesting to observe that Webster enunciated the "trinity" in our government 35 years before Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Fred IS. Helms Helms & Mulliss Attorneys at Law 52(1-527 Law Building Charlotte 2, North Carolina Reading the Score on Foreign Aid Whatever action we take, we expect certain results. In spending 55 billions of taxpayers' money on foreign-aid giveaway, we expected to promote friends and hinder communism. Have we or have we not promoted those ends? Competent authorities have reported that we have fewer friends in countries over which these vast sums have been scattered, than we had before, and any observer can see for himself that communism has advanced apace. Take France and Italy tor instance, where we have spent enormous sums. Wort- in sonic places we find signs posted "Americans (in Home." As to communism in these two countries, thev have gained strength year 1>> year in their legislatures until today they are a real menace to the governments. Also, consider Yugoslavia into which we have poured - billion seven hundred millions of taxpayers' money — just what benefit have we received from that expenditure, with Tito hack in the arms of Russia? Now, I may strike an unpopular note here and 1 may he wrong, being human, but I cannot resist visualizing this $55 billion being spent iii our own country. Aside and in addition to vast internal improvements, it could fortify and protect us by air, land, and sea to such an extent that it would not pay for anv cm mv to attack us. We would thus have the protection which we paid lor al did not get under the giveaway progi.1"' If we have to keep on giving aw money, let's give it to our next-dflj neighbor. Latin America.
