To tlie non-Communist American this is such utter nonsense that In- wonders what's hack of it. ... The truth is that everywhere in the world people fear the atomic bomb only in the hands ol luissia. None fear Costa Rica or Switzerland as its possessor; none tear Britain or thc United States or Canada as its possessor; hut thej all fear that soft headedness or treachery mav give it to Russia. And rightlj or wrongly, they all think Kussia would use it.

Sei retary: Through one of my private eves, it has come to mv attention that one Mr. Mired Kohlberg lias applied for a job on the IN ( ommittee on Peaceful Uses ol Atomic Energy. Ol course. I hate to take anybody's possibility of a job away from him. and I know that Mr Kohlberg i- sorely in w,'t;\ of stead) employment. He i- a young man and ha- been married within the la-t few years. I always like to help young men hut. in this case. 1 must warn you that he is a man of thoroughly had character I have good reason to believe that he lias been siphoning out hind- of the greal Rockefeller tax-exempt institutions in such subversive work as trying to keep thc Vmerican flag above the I nited Nations flag. His wife is no better than Im f:. In lad. due to her lamilv origin, it \< Strongly suspected that she is still a Nail. It i- even rumored that she i- a direct descendant of a mesalliance between Wanner and one ol the Rheingold maidens at least thev u-ed to he maiden- before Mr. Wagner met them. She embodies all tlie wnr-t qualities ol the Teuton. She actually believes that it is no disgrace to have earned her living and to have kept some ol the money. You and I well know that, in this modern America, such thoughts are treason. Mr. Kohlberg i- also a man of strong racial prejudices. When given a chance to place the greal Mr. Ralph Bunche on a com in it tee. Mr. Kohlberg turned him down. Although he did nol say it was on account ol hi- racial prejudices, Mr. Kohlberg's action- show that it was. Mr. Kohlberg, instead of asking Mr. Bunche on the committee, appointed Mr. George Schuyler a man with know n anti-Negro propensities. wtiy ■* 'fl^- A 5 w ^ ^■p t 1 —Wide World Photo George Schuyler Please, of < -e. treat thi- letter RS completely confidential.
