If the independent little Republic of Switzerland, surrounded by predatory powers which have recurrently turned Europe into a battlefield, can so suc- cessfully "go it alone." why must the mighty I nited States, flanked bv two oceans, depend for its securit) upon allies — the same "allies" who let us do the fighting for them in Korea? We hope the Presidenl will think about this at Geneva and that he will return convinced that the Swiss policy of independence, courage and integrity in international affairs is more effective in preventing war than lhe appeasement, arms and alphabetical alliances on which our national security depends. Mildred Willis Harris 400 East 59th St. New York 22. N. Y. 2nd Award IF JOHNNY COULD READ To tin- Rochester Times-Union: The National Education Association i- demanding federal aid lo education. More socialism. Now I know "Why Johnny Can'l Read . . ." I by Rudolph Flesch). If Johnny could read he might learn something about American history. lb- mighl learn lo read lln- Declaration of Independence . . . from oppressive government, lie might learn that our Republic became the grcatesl ami most prosperous in lhe world beeause it was built on free enterprise and thai socialism destroys freedom, initiative and prosperity. He might learn that socialism denies one of the Ten Commandments . . . "Thou shalt not steal" . . . taking from one to give to another. If Johnny could read he mighl even learn to think for himself and discover individual liberty — Heaven forbid! Pauline Classen Shortsville. New York * ♦ • 3rd Award RED, WHITE AND BLUE To the Chicago Tribune: In completing an exhibit for Armed Forces day, I shopped the stores around Chanute Air Base for red, white, and blue crepe paper. Most of the merchants had never heard of such a thing. Perhaps I'm older than I realize. Yel. when I was a boy all the stores carried that combination. My cousins made dresses and suits of that material. We wore inn patriotism frankly and proudly. Is it "fat eat" living, color engineering, or pastel minded "liberalism" thai causes us to hide our colors? Let's encourage our merchants In stock the good old red, white, and blue. Let's get them out where thev can be seen. \f/Sgt. Fdward M. Horan 3345th Supply Sq.. Box 2181 Chanute Air Force Base. Illinois 4th Award LIBERAL HEADLINERS To the Berry ville. Va. Courier: The liberals, pinkos, left-wingers and fellow travelers are having a super field day. One often has to double-check the names of the newspapers to be sure he is not reading the Daily Worker or Pravda. If Chou-En-lai sneezes, head lines claim, he is about to release a couple more of our dear boys who now are by Executive Order. United Nationalists rather than Americans. The- headlines don't tell about the 4,000-odd other missing boys, or how long il will take to get them back 4 al a lime. Why don't the papers tell us the real Tito story instead of lying propaganda? When are we going to be told lhat Communists, no matter what their nationality, are nothing but dirty, filthy, double-crossing rats? When will vve American people demand lhat our statesmen and senators quit giving our hard- earned money to animals like Tito'.-' Joseph M. Howard 350 W. Vanderbilt Dr. Corpus Christi, Texas 1'ajte 61
