about FACTS FORUM
I have been following your publication

pride indeed that I watch it grow biggei
and better with every number. Eventually,
it will be on all the drugstore stands across
our beloved land. It must.
P.S. Judge Medina's article is thc finest

I am making up my Christmas gift li-t
and 1 think there would be nothing
than a gift subscription to your wonderful
paper. Every patriotic citizen should get
behind your paper and sec that it is placed
in every school library and public reading
room over the nation. I for one am going
to do my part. Send material for getting
business friends interested in adding patriotism tn their ads.

Although I subscribed only recently to
Facta Forum New.% I can frankly say thai
it now ranks firsl \> ith me in comparison
with the thirteen other magazines that are
now mailed to us regularly. . . . the main
reason is because its study provokes righteous
thinking; the kind thai inspires us tn stop
and think before making a definite decision
on anv important problem.
