Transcript uld be u. Fa- violated their 1933 agreement not to continue espionage work against the United States. Things could have been better if Mrs. Roosevelt had not been so suspicious of the Dies Committee, and if today she were not so suspicious of those ex-Reds who have performeel valuable service to the government. James D. Bales 707 E. Race St., Searcy, Ark. 13th Award PROPAGANDA IN PARKS I'd the Colorado Springs Gazette-Telegraph: The Honorable Douglas McKay Secretary of the Interior Washington, D. C. Dear Sir: On a recenl visit lo Muir Wood- \;i tional Monument near San Francisco, I read the following words on a plaque: "Here in this grove of enduring redwoods, preserved for posterity, members of the United Nations Conference on International Organization met on May 19, 1945, to honor the memory of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, thirty-first Presidenl of the United States, Chief .Architect of the United Nations and Apostle of lasting peace for all mankind." To millions of Americans the United Nations is an agent of communism and is un-American in ils philosophy and deeds. How many such propaganda plaques are there in national parks over the U. S.? It seems to me our Government has had enough trouble with the UN and would not wish to promote it in Such manner. National parks and monu- nit-tils are not the proper places for subtle propaganda such as the above. Won't you please remove it? Tom Gaskins Palmdale. Florida 14th Award Who knows? To the Eugene Register-Guard: A recent item in the Oregoniaii heeul- ed "Virgin Hens Flunk Tests" provided a typical example of bureaucratic efficiency. The Departmenl of Agriculture's experimental farm al Beltsville, Mil., has been trying to hatch unfertilized tuikev ''"gs from virgin liens. Anv country boy could have advised "te experts that the handiest article on ■' successful turkey farm is a sprightly gobbler. Aside from the biological problems. Consider the moral results had such experiments been successful. Did these- ex 1' s< ts FORUM NEWS, September, 1955 perls not consider the wave of juvenile delinquency among the turkey offspring who knew not the guiding wing of a solicitous father? Having abandoned their fruitless project, one cannot help but wonder if these experts will be shifted to the task of producing "cheap power" from government-built dams, just as they produced cheap turkeys. Or perhaps they will hatch a few "squirrels," a kickles? mare or a five-gaited "constitutional liberal." Who knows? Dwight Gi]]ord Rt. 2. Box 929, Creswell, Oregon 15th Award A GOOD EXAMPLE To thc Fort Worth Star Telegram: If you would like just one example of whal Presidenl Eisenhower's international free trade bill will do to our economy and our standard of living, just keep your eye on what excessive oil imports have already done to our oil industry. Our American oil producers who pay high taxes, high prices and high wages, simply cannot compete with foreign countries who pay starvation wages. Naturally they are forced to shut down, throwing oilfield workers out of work. If a man cannot pay rent or buy the essentials the factories cannot sell their products. So they must reduce their staffs. So on and on it goes, while we sil idly by and say "what can we do aboul it?" Here is what we can do about it: Write our congressmen how we feel about excessive oil imports and the President's international free trade bill. Mac Cheshire Lake Rd.. Cisco. Texas 16th Award PROTECTION—U. N. STYLE To the Colorado Springs Gazette-Telegraph: President Eisenhower, Harry Truman, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Paul Hoffman assure us the United Nations is the "hope and salvation of the world." We suggest they poll the hundreds, once numbering thousands, of Americans who fought for the United Nations and now are dying in Red-Chinese dungeons. Is betrayal into the enemies' hands, and a slow, hideous death the reward for allegiance to the United Nations? If United Nations' devotees repose such faith in ils powers, why don't they trade places with the Red-held American boys? The United Nations will protect them—or. will il? Elizabeth Lippitt 2414 Pacific Avenue- San Francisco, California 17th Award BRICKER AMENDMENT NOT CONSIDERED DEAD To thc Minneapolis Morning Tribune: For whom does Doris Fleeson write when she states the Bricker Amendment "is dead for this session"? Could the Bricker amendment be dead to Gladys Keefe, whose husband, Private Richard Thomas Keefe, was tried, sentenced, and jailed in France via provisions of the NATO Status of Forces Treaty instead of being tried by jury as provided for under our Constitution? Could it be dead to Private Keefe, who was denied review of his case by the Supreme Court February 28. 1954? ("mild it be dead to over 5.000 similar cases wherein our soldiers as well as their dependents have been subjected to jurisdiction of foreign courts and have been tried and sentenced under foreign law? It would seem unlikely. Nor is tie Bricker Amendment "dead" to many Americans. Too many of our constitu- tional rights are being jeopardized because of treaty law and we intend to be heard on this subject. Marea Campbell Dalbo. Minn. 18th Award PLEA FOR INDIAN REHABILITATION To Look Magazine: We are very grateful for your article and pray it will awaken the American people to assist us in persuading Congress to enact rehabilitation bills for the Sioux Tribes. Almost to the man. Indians agree the time is long overdue for thc American people, through their Federal Government, to carry out the promises and obligations to Indians contained in solemn treaty agreements. Indians regard these treaties as sacred and have kept their promise. America should do no less. Immediate enactment of rehabilitation bills, similar to Point Four programs abroad, and honorable and speedy settlement of old claims would accomplish this for the Sioux people. Wc think the Indian Department should release some of the strict controls that bind the Indians till thev are so restricted that they cannot make a move without approval. These have' caused the Indians lo lose (heir initiative to go ahead on their own. Robert Burnetii-. Presidenl Rosebud Sioux Tribal Count il Rosebud.
