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.

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.

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.

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. Being neilj
