Transcript 5th Award PROPERTY RIGHTS To the Chicago Tribune: Congratulations on your excellent editorial pointing out the fallacies in Dulles' "explanations" of his now famous switch on the Bricker Amendment. The distinction between property rights and human rights is a spurious one, another example of the left-wing tactic of semantics to undermine constitutional government. Property per se has no rights — only- people have rights. It is not the right of property which the Constitution protects, but the right to property. Our Constitution guarantees to every American individual three great rights, equally secure from arbitrary interference: the right to his life, the right to his liberty, and the right to his property. To give a man his life and liberty. but take from him the property which is the fruit of his life and the means of his liberty, is to leave him still a slave. Phyllis Stewart Schlajly 1212 Callahan Dr. Alton, Illinois * * * 6th Award AN ILLUMINATED WORLD To the Christian Science Monitor: I've been disturbed by growing expressions of doubt as to the value of the United Nations among my acquaintances. Your editorial, "For UN: 56 Cents a Year." will be a potent fact that I can use in mv argument for the I V Nut long ago I heard of a woman traveler who decided to buy a globe as an aid in planning future trips and thinking back upon past excursions. She was examining an assortment of globes and had selected one to purchase when she saw another row of even more attractive globes. The shopkeeper reached out and touched an electric switch and the globes were each illumined. "That's what I want." exclaimed the woman, "an illuminated world!" "Much better." replied the owner, "but it costs more!" Surely we all want a world illumined with international cooperation and hu- manitarianism. Let's not complain as to the cost Seletha Broun 1013 4th, Lonemont, Colorado 7th Award MEMORIAL DAY To the New York Herald Tribune: On Memorial Day we honor thc memory of those who died for our country. With hundreds of those who fought for us languishing and suffering a living death in Communist prisons, forgotten hy those they defended, how can we pretend to honor those who gave their lives for our country? More appropriately we might, on Memorial Day, mourn an America that callously abandons its defenders to the outrages of its barbarous enemies. Ben]. T. Rauber 76 Yantacaw Brook Road ( pper Montclair, New Jersey * * * 8th Award GIVEAWAY SCHEME RUINING US. HE SAYS To the Houston Chronicle: The great mystery which will come out of the ruins of our great American e ivilization will be the national madness for giving, as future scholars ponder why native Americans lost their equilibrium over a program to "share." This nation became what it is because its men and women go back through a common ancestry to the dawn of time. The conspiracy to do away with our coming generations' heritage, which is being furthered by church and political groups, is, to me, the most contemptible scheme yel devised in this country. T. C. Smith, Jr. 1415 Durham, Brownwood. Texeis • # » 9th Award WOULDN'T SEND FOOD TO FEED RUSSIANS To the Dallas Times Herald: The apathy of the Russian people permitted the Communist leaders to take over their government. The same thing could happen to the American people. if we continue our apathetic attitude toward the communistic evils that arc en- eleavoring to engulf the nation. Their present predicament is of their own making. Russia has the gold and probably the American dollars to buy wheal to feed their hungry people, bul thev prefer to use this money for our destruction. Russia is a nation without God, without principles, untrustworthy and bent ii p 0 n creating a "hell on earth." Wheat is the staff of life eiml there are other nations and people more entitled to our help. Russia accepted our bounty and betrayed our trust. Let the Russian people and their communistic leaders "stew in their own juice." It is no concern of ours. Ed II. Patton 518 W. 12th. Dallas. Texas 10th Award VETERAN CASTS CRITICAL EYE AT GOVERNMENT INSURANCE To the New Bedford Standard-Times: Is a veteran justified in accepting GI insurance coverage once he has re-established himself in civilian life? To most veterans National Service Lib- Insur ance is no different from other insurance except for its cheapness and the big dividends. As long as he pays his premiums he feels he is entitled to the benefits. Until recently that is the way I felt. My suspicions were aroused, how- ever, by the large dividends we have been receiving from the Veterans Administration. As a result of investigation I have substituted private insurance for my GI insurance. My most important discovery was thai the big VA insurance dividends and the cheapness of the insurance were made possible by the American taxpayer, not by efficient VA administration of the insurance program and profitable investments. I don't believe I should make the American taxpayer say "thank you" any longer for my doing my duty. Philip E. O'Connell 18 Whitcomb Terrace South Weymouth, Massachusetts » * * 11th Award ANTI-SUBSIDY FARMER To the Pittsburg Sun-Telegraph: I noticed a newspaper item where Reuther and organized labor are for more subsidies for the farmer. His interest in the farmer is to have him poll- tically on his side when needed. My first job for pay was on a farm 75 years ago. I still live on a farm. A farmer today, if properly equipped, can do more work and easier than ten men could do at that time. I do not think a farmer should be paid subsidies only in case his crops are destroyed. I feel he has the best chance of any working man to make a good living and the easiest way. I do not think farmers should be handed money paid in taxes by workers that make less than they do. W. D. Johnson R. D. 1. deriekt - ri'ileriekleew n Per 12th Award ELEANORS SUSPICIONS To the Chicago Daily Tribune: In McCall's Magazine (April, 1955), Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, seemingly unaware of the checking to which tin- testimony of ex-Communists has been subjected, writes that it would be belter if we were more suspicious of the testimony of ex-Communists. Be that as it may, without question ihis would be a different world if Franklin D. Roosevelt had been more suspi cious of known Communists. Martin Dies told him of thc Communist menace, but he said he was not afraid of lln' Communists and that some of his friends were Communisls. Roosevelt continued to trust the Communists altho he knew that they soon I'aife 02 FACTS FORUM NEWS, September, 1955
