Certainly Chou heis sufficient reasons to believe thai we are too proud or too M'lleeW III fight. Sliieulil Chou En-Lai now oiler ee cease-fire for all Chiang - Islands excepl Formosa, watch our appeasers demand acceptance. Then, how lone would il be until our State Department would announce that Formosa, Japan, Korea, eunl Ueisk.ee are no longer within the perimeter ol our defense? R. C.

Alabama 6th Award MARINE OATH To the Seattle Post-Intelligencer: In reading the new oath ol enlistmenl for the Marine Corps, which I understand is in he' used for eill armed services, two significant changes engaged my attention. The word "God" i- omitted, as is the reference to defending lhe Constitution. Considerable verbiage of little significance is added. Do these changes portend a gradual oi sudden absorption of the' I nited Slate's Armed Forces into the I V where lhe word "God" is hated and the Constitution despised? 1 have administered the oath ol enlistmenl many times when il contained the words '• lod, and "I lonstitution, and it i- dear to my heart. Veterans everywhere should rise- up in righteous indignation. ( . G.

Dangerous Path," is another example of your untiring efforts to keep thi- country on a siiunil economic eiml democratic basis. The federal governmenl cannot af- loril to embark on a grandiose school building program ;in\ more than the- various states can. If the citizens ol the slates di, n,,i feel they can afford individually such elaborate physical educational facilities as those proposed b; W eishinL-leeii. then how can they afford eill ihis simply because the plan i~ I lovernment-sj sored ?

Ohio 9th Award BAN ON PUBLICATIONS OPPOSED To the Sew I ork Times: Recently the New *! ork Time's ele plored the decline of Slavic studies in ih,' educational institutions of ihis country. Due reason eiitel for the decline weis the fear of students thai their study eel Russian or related languages mighl subject them to future investigations. It is mosl unfortunate thai the study of the Russian language is diminishing al a time when ii is most \iieil to the security of our country. The news thai the Posl Office is refusing in deliver Soviel publications to anv excepl "authorized" persons is most disturbing, li i- high time that many loy il Americans learn Russian, eunl read Russian publications carefully. If only diplomats and foreign agents may read Pravda or other Soviel publications, our information on lieissiei will be dangerously reduced. Such arbitrary censorship is an unjustified denial of our traditional rights to read anything we wish, eunl -liniilil la' ended immediately. Col at l n Cum Duke- I niversity Durham.

To the- Houston Chronicle: Recently a friend remarked In me very matter-of-factly thai he heul not ia.nl ,i single magazine, newspaper or 1 ,ioik during the past eight years and consequently knew little, if eni\thin■_-. aboul communism or anv other kiml of ism.

John ll. Lynch 1037 San Male,,. SE, Mbuquerque. Y M. 11th Award FARM FREEDOM To the Los Angeles Times: Hunger and famines resulting from food scarcity in Communist-controlled countries are nothing new. This sad state is the resull of farm collectivism, ;ul\ ocated by all (iommunists. Communisl agriculture "experts coming to Vmerica to observe our Farm methods and machiner) will nol increase their production. When fanners are free to own their own farms and equipment, control their own lives and business, and sell thetf produce on a free markel the resull ie- abundance and plenty for all. Ihis method, however, is capitalism, the economic system Communists detesl above all. And I doubl if the Communisl dictators prefer freedom for their subjects eunl eil lance to personal power, controls eiml scarcities. II they did, there would be no Communists.
