Transcript I "We hair never concealed the fact that our revolution is only the beginning, that it will lead to a victorious ending only when we shall hare inflamed the whole world with its revolutionary fires." Nicolai Lenin Collected Works, Vol. 17, Pages 22-23 The ( nited States cannot he an Atlas, if cannot by its financial sacrifices carry all other nalions of the world on its shoulders, and we should stop give-away programs" —President Dwight D. Eisenhower June 23, 1954 "True liberty is the child of knowledge" —Holmes Fifth Reader (1891) "The truth requires eon stunt repetition, because error is being preached all the time, and wot only by isolated individuals, but by the masses" —OoETHR Conversations with F.ekcrmann, 182K "Men should not think it slavery to live according to the rule oj the constitution; for it is their salvation" —Aristotle "There is an important sense in which the government is distinct from the administration.

Murrow devoted the major portion of one of hi- ""See It Now" programs to ridiculing the things that Mrs. Smart has done anil attempted to do. Henry V. Moran ot Ne* York writes us, "Instead of praising heifer it. Edward R. Murrow pictured her ■■- a witch uho burned good hook- written for the en I i iih ten ment ami edification of youth . . . Evidently [since the Aluminum Corporation of America dropped sponsorship of the "See It Now" program within a fen weeks following Murrow'- treatment nf Mi-.

The Superintendent of Argenta Community I nit District No. 1. the nurse supervisor of the Visiting Nurses Association, and the Board of Education approved this program. Mrs. Wheeler, who felt con-trained to iemo\e hcl" ehihl to a school in a neighboring community, writes: "1 had only to read the November, 1954, issue of P.T.A. magazine to find thai thev ad\o.ate sex education, progressive education.
