Their subtle tactics and sometimes winsome propaganda may rob us of our freedom." —Reverend Robert P. Shuler The Metbodisl I hadlenge "Every man has a right to his opinion, but no man has a right to be wrong in his facts." —Bernard M.

Tlie Omaha World Herald, under the heading "No Substitute For You," states that "the weapon to defeat all collectives is INDIVID UALISM. ... If you arc tired of Following the intellectual leadership of someone else and would like to do your own thinking for a while, these books can help to get you into the right kind of habit." The subject-indexed list uf books which follows the newspaper article is available through the Do You Know Company, P. 0. Box 13351, Houston, Texas, as well as the books themselves. Among the headings shown are "The Communist Idea." "Communism in the U.S.A.," "World Commii- ni-ni," and "Failure of Communism," as well as other anti-collectivist subjects. The Kingmakers' Republicide Commenl received from E. F. W. Wilder- muth of 181-23 Dalny Rd., Jamaica 32, N. Y., is thought-provoking. He writes as follows: "I note that your letterhead recites that F \' I v FORUM 'dispels apathy.' It is my opinion thai professional politicians have, in their own selfish interests for ease of self-perpetuation u> kingmakers, dubbed the apparent lack of public interest in government as "apathy." thereb) giving the outward semblance of justification for their existence, and at the same time placing the blame for high taxes and lack of honor and integrity in government upon the people. "However, the fact is that we suffer from "voter frustration1 because the professional politicians have, for all practical purposes, denied us the righl to vote upon issues anil the right to select candidates for party nomination to public office in competitive primary elections . . . The frustrating result is that on Election Day we make a choice, those of us who bother to vote, between the lesser of two evils, by placing our stamp of approval upon one or the other of the candidates hand-picked for 06 \<\ kingmakers who themselves were not elected by the people. What do you think'.''" Civic Pride Created "Since becoming a FACTS FORUM reader some three years ago," writes ex-detective John G. Wlielun of No. 4. TOO Broughton Street, Vancouver, B. C. '"I have acquired the habit of looking around to see what was going on in our town. After a quick glance into Bluebeard's chamber, I decided to ilo something about it. In llie storehouse of my memory I held the efficacy to force an open investigation into condition- existing in our town, and In collaboration with a fearless reporter, Ray Munro, we sel in motion the most powerful weapon in existence, public opinion. "Under ihe able council of a learned member of the bar. Neil Fleishman, we took on gangland, the Police Department, the Police Commission, the \thletic Commission, the Mayor, the City Council and Mors I'arti-ari \--n< iation, the former provincial government. and the vice syndicate in our city. "The wheels of justice arc now in motion, and a direct bio* has been -truck on the grip of political control in our community, l>\ acquiring the realization that 1 was a fellow traveler on the death train of our civilization, I obtained the ability to strike a blow for freedom . . . from the bonds of political chicanery which are grinding us down into the ground. "In the hope that others may gain the courage from your efforts which I did. I remain . . ." Front page headline news stories accompanying Mr. Whelan's letter indicate that a special four-man team of th*' Royal Canadian Mounted Police has been assigned to probe criminal aspects of the inquiry following a dramatic series of events which included: K 1. Publication of a series of article- by Flash magazine, a Toronto tabloid, charging graft in the Police Department, prepared by reporter Ray Munro in conjunction with former city detective Jack Whelan. 2. Filing of a libel suit by Police Chief Walter Mulligan, who had been linked with Vancouver's criminal element through this information, againsl Munro and Flash magazine. 3. Blaming of city police laxness for city's narcotics problem by a special Senate narcotics investigating committee investigating Canada- drug problem. I. Attempted suicide of Detective Sergeant l.en Cuthbert, former head of the gambling squad, named in Flash magazine as involved in the Department scandals to the extent that he and Police Chief Mulligan were parties to a plot to split VanCOUVei in half between two gambling syndicates, who were willing to pa> $5.00(1 a month for a "good deal" from Mulligan and Cuthbert. Today's Youth — Tomorrow's Leaders This constructive suggestion from Robert Hardgrave, Jr.. of Sonora, Texas, for a "Youth Speaks" feature: "Once a month you could pick two youths—■ one conservative, lhe other liberal — and have ilicni do research and write a debate for their side on given subjects. It would certainly not be one-sided and would have appeal to tic- readers of Facts Forum Vetoi since the youth of today will he the leaders of tomorrow." No Substitute for Americanism From I.. K. \\ liilne\. < :lneago. 111.: "Mr. Phillips of the Borger (Tex.) VetN Herald sent me a copy of a letter they received from a young student wanting tn know how American youth are to recognize Communist teachings.
