Transcript Editor's Mail Basket (Continued from Inside Front Cover) customs, and sales levies to pay for the operation of government, with perhaps a land or single tax thrown in for good measure." My comment here is the first part of the statement is untrue — excise, customs, and sales levies might be eliminated. The second part is an alternative tcith merit, it should be studied. I do not think collection of the rental value of land would provide as much revenue as does the income tax, but I do think it could provide a large portion and balance imild be provided either by a per-capita tax or gross income tax. John T. Tetley 1114 Broad Street Newark 5, New Jersey Inconsistent Voting In the May Facts Forum Poll, 79 per cent of those voting felt that the doctrine of states' rights should be preserved. Presumably these 79 per cent believe that the federal government should not interest itself in internal or domestic matters. Yet, only 51 per cent of the voters in this May Poll were against a federal traffic law. And 64 per cent were in favor of more (federal) controls on consumer credit. To be consistent, all of the 79 per cent who voted for states' rights should automatically be against any and all federal interference in the fields of traffic or consumer credit. Thus, many of the ideological "states' righters," by their voting in this Poll, indirectly accepted the overall concept of continued or extended federal interference in local affairs. Mrs. Philip L. Corson Plymouth Meeting, Penn. Reserve Officer Lauds "Good Fences" I want to commend the article entitled "Good Fences" in your July issue of Facts- Forum News. The article impressed me as a down- to-earth talk in plain language outlining some of the fundamental truths regarding our Constitution. It also expresses some thought-provoking questions. I have always been a rugged individualist in my thinking and my experience in two World Wars on foreign soil has only fortified my thinking along these lines. I have been fighting the Communist line for a long time, which seeks to destroy our faith in God, our faith in our government, and proper respect for our parents. The article published in your magazine fills a long-needed and overdue approach to the great questions confronting the country today. To sum up, what the people need is awareness that there is no substitute for hard work and faith in God. You have my best wishes in spreading Page 54 the tnith and in portraying the facts, which bring to light some of the fundamentals which have made our country great. Cot. Ray J. Cunningham Historian, Missouri Department Reserve Officers Assn. of the U. S. 641 E. Jefferson Kirkwood 22, Missouri Showing True Colors Perhaps this story could be repeated in other sections of the United States. Last February I wrote several chain grocers throughout the Chicago vicinity and suggested that perhaps they could sell a little patriotism by offering an inexpensive American flag for home use. One of these companies answered my letter, thanking me for my suggestion. I am enclosing an advertisement this company put in today's newspapers, which Facts Forurn News receives more litters from readers than it can print. It regrets that it cannot print them all. The shorter the letter the helter its chances of publication. The puhlisher reserves the riuht to print excerpts unless request to the contrary is made by the writer. really made me feel good [advertisement was a full-page tribute to the Bag]. I hope that this will help a little to revive the custom our fathers had and that we again see many, many flags displayed. Mrs. John Schwenger 845 Argyle Avenue Flossmoor, Illinois Radio Free Europe Series Still in Limelight In Facts Forum News of May, 1956, Mr. Jiri Brada on p. 26, and Mr Kurt Glaser on p. 22, referred to the Czechoslovak Foreign Institute in Exile in a manlier which does not correspond with facts and truth. (1) The Czechoslovak Foreign Institute in Exile has nothing in common with an institute of a similar name in Prague. (2) Dr. Hubert Ripka is neither a founder nor a member of the Czechoslovak Foreign Institute in Exile. (3) The Czechoslovak Foreign Institute in Exile is neither an infiltration center nor are a large number of Radio Free Europe employees members of it. (4) The Czechoslovak Foreign Institute in Exile is an internationally rec ognized organization of youngfa Czechoslovak intellectuals in exil* striving for the liberation of then homeland The Czechoslovak Foreign Institute i Exile publishes a Library, which is I series of extensive studies; Studies, whiclj is a series of monographs; The Cold Wo*, which is a bulletin based on reports from Czechoslovakia; and Trihuna, which is J bi-monthly review of political and economic affairs The members of the Institute try to; reach their objectives by combining theft Czechoslovak experience and erudition with the knowledge and the scientific skill which thev have acquired in the free world.
