Transcript ■—^WPl disabilities should be stopped. State and local organizations should take care of these people. All service-connected disabilities should be reviewed and reclassified according to medical opinion. These should not be awarded on a nonmedical basis. If a man (or woman) has a disability which actually prevents him from making a living, then he should be compensated by the VA. Otherwise, he should not. The President's commission will probably get blasted by some of the veterans' organizations. Let them holler. Dr. William J. Fox 318 West Forty-sixth Terrace Kansas City 12. Missouri Rules for the "Letters to Editors" contest, and other Facts Forum contests appear on page 60. Stalinism Continues (Continued from page 51) (4) Agree to disarmament through international inspection and supervision of nuclear and all other weapons of mass destruction. (5) Cease all subversive and espionage activities through the Cominform and all its agencies. (6) Apply in the Middle East and elsewhere the five principles Khrushchev and Bulganin bailed in their tour of India and at the 20th Congress. (7) Agree to withdraw Marshal Rokosovsky from control of the Polish Army. (8) Accept the proposals made by thc West (which they rejected at Geneva) for free exchange of ideas and cultural material between the USSR and the free countries. Our free labor movement and our democratic academic community can render a really great service to our country by helping it develop clarity and unity of purpose and much greater initiative in the struggle for peace and freedom. Our country has much more to sell than seeds, farm machinery, and automobiles. We have very effective means with which to quarantine communism or any other despotism. We have the ideals and the ideas; the devotion to human dignity and liberty; the military potential and infinite capacity to help transform countries peacefully into areas of well- being and freedom for the great mass of people. end Page 62 Communism's Bottled Efficiency BY UPTON SINCLAIR Excerpt from The Cup of Fury, Chapter 11 Published in 1956 at $3.00 by Channel Press, Inc., Great Neck, N. Y. Used by special permission ot the copyright owners The Communists use liquor as a sort of Geiger-counter, probing for the weaknesses of men and women. They have used it to gain recruits; they have used it to steal a nation's most guarded secrets. Mary McCarthy, the brilliant writer of short stories, recently told in Reporter magazine how in her youth she flitted about on the outskirts of thc Communist movement, attending their dances and drinking parties. Everybody became extremely drunk, and "the atmosphere was horribly sordid." When tin- Communist regime was launched in Russia, there were some sincere if mistaken idealists among the "old Bolsheviks" — men and women who really believed in freedom, who were actually convinced that they were uplifting humanity. Hut thinkers of this sort went down, one after another, in one blood purge after another. They were exterminated as if they had been the most dangerous of snakes. One of the early forms their idealism took was the prohibition of alcoholic liquor. But that hope died with all the others. The brutal men who came out on top in Russia knew that a drunken people would be easier to hold in subjection than a sober people. Today the Soviet Union has repudiated all the virtues ol the old order and adopted only its evils. The production of liquor is a State monopoly; and the men vvho control that monopoly live in luxury. Ninety per cent of the money paid lor every quart of liquor goes directly to the State. Correspondents conic home from Russia and report that there are no shoes available in the stores, no clothing, onlv the basic foodstuffs — and liquor. There's always plenty of liquor. In France, it was the Communists who were most vociferous in their campaign of bate, ridicule, and contempt, when Pierre Mendes-France began his historic attempt to curb alcoholism in his country. Again they acted in the knowledge that a wine-sodden nation, sick in mind and body, is easy prey. And look at the drinking "traditions" of France the Communists there so righteously- defended! The nation's consumption of wine in 1951 was six billion bottles — five times as much as lor Italy, the world's second in wine-consumption. Home distilling is legal in France, with 3,250,000 individuals licensed to produce alcohol from grapes, apples, primes, pears, sugar beets, and oven artichokes. There is one drink shop lor every ninety inhabitants, In Germany the ratio is one to 246 people; in Norway, it's one to every three thousand. As a result, there are twenty-two alcoholics to each one thousand inhabitants in France. And at least partially as a result of that fact, I believe, France has the sickest government in the free world, including in its Assembly more Communists than any other free nation of the world. Liquor works lor the Communists in New York and in Paris and in Moscow. It works overtime. Facts Fuiuxi News, September, 19^
