I attended the convention of the California wing of AFA, at Fresno. There the Ladies' Auxiliarj passed ei resolution which vvas subsequent!) adopted hv the entire convention. I think it expresses whal I mean. Stripped ol the' "whereases," here is the gisl of it. Diplomatic efforts to release the fliers hav.' failed. The unjust imprisonment ..I ..ur servicemen for political purposes is an invasion of human rights and an acl of aggression against the United Stales. The matter is corroding the moral fiber of our nation and, if nol corrected. cannot help hut adversely affeel the readi- ness of our vi.ling men to answer their oounlrv s call. Since Soviet Russia has armed, equipped, and assisted Communist China in her acts of aggression, il Is incumbent upon President Eisenhower to place the blame for this aggression where it belongs — upon Soviet Russia. I Im President, therefore, should take decisive action directly with the U.S.S.R. to oblaiu tin- release of these fifteen airmen anil all other I nited Stales service- men now held in Red prisons. Further, the wives and mothers of the nation are entitled to know whal action their government will take if their husbands eiml sons are imprisoned under similar circumstances in the Inline.
