Transcript actual security risks. This election farce constituted a libel on the federal work force." SENATOR JENNER cites Communist campaigns against congressional committees— Fellow Americans, our country is so beautiful, so strong, so free from jealousy toward other nations that Americans find it hard to believe anyone would want to destroy us. Envy is a burden which the wealthiest nation must always bear. It may be incredible In u- but it has been only too commoii history. In our day, envy heis been changed from an ugly emotion into a political movement, supported by a government controlling a hundred eighty million people and over a half-billion satellites. Communism is rooted in envy. In internal policy, communism means unresting attempts to destroy all nations whose people are richer than theirs. The bitterest venom of Communist hate i- reserved for us. By following the gospel of live and let live, of self-help, and non-interference, our people have become too proseprous for the Communists to bear. Let us not fool ourselves. The Communists do not think the destruction of America is easy. They study every bit of information about our country on which they can lay their hands. They collect every fact about Congress and about the government departments. aboul our laws and our courts. They examine minutely everything about our economic life from our labor unions to our patent laws. They study our schools, our churches, our farm organizations, our women's clubs. They know who runs what and how. A hundred years ago Keirl Marx made a careful study of our war between the slates. Today, many thousands of trained Communist intelligence officers are making a careful studv of everything we do. The Communists are engaged in a secret war. Thev do not tell us who are their captain- or their generals. They will not tell us who replace llie men who fall. No one' has defected from recent Communist membership who can or will tell us. but the high command is hard at work. The Communists are loo smart lo denv lhat real Communists were un- covered in our congressional investigations. They say, "Yes, you did have a feu Communists in government, in labor, in the press and other spots, bul llie-v have all been rooted out. You cleverly outwitted tin- traitors. All is well." That's what they say. Their line Would nut be of tbe slightest danger to us if Communists were lhe spokesmen »bo -pread it abroad. But lhe Communists do not work that way. They whisper in the ear of some innocent person. who in turn repeals lhe tale, until it spreads out like the ripples from a stone in the pond. Soon, people hear the argument only from the most unimpeachable sources. The Communists have carried on a bitter campaign against congressional committees which investigated subversion. They have broadcast and re-broadcast the sayings of commentators who tried to mislead us. They have worked unceasing!) to discredit the ex-Communists who told the full story of the conspiracy, especially the men whose testimony helped convict the party leaders who have been sent to jail. Let us not be childish. The Communists have no intention of ending their attempts to subvert us. They well know they must destroy us if they hope to keep the world in bondage. Communist attempts to subvert us will continue as long as a Communist government exists mi eeirlh. Let us get that perfectly clear. Subversion is constantly at work on American soil directed by the best brains the Communists can assign to tbe task. What then do we do? We have no need lo get panicky or distrustful. Americans need never fear the worst the Communists can do. We can do Iwo things to protect ourselves. We must abandon the foolish idea that the Communists keep on operating today where they worked yesterday. That is never done in war. If like Lot'- wife we turn our beads over our shoulders to look for Communists where they worked ten years ago. we shall never outwit the Communist leader- by peaceful, political means. We must look ahead to see where the old methods arc being carried on in new ways. We must especially watch our armed forces on one band and the influence of shaping public opinion on lhe other. We know control of those Iwo forces, lhe military power and the means for propaganda, are their unchanging aim-. Second, we must study America and everything American as thoroughly eis the Communists studv it. We must know our earliest history, our deepest traditions and the most complex and illusive developments of the present moment. To love America is not enough. But those who truly love America and who will work unceasingly to know and understand her can face without fear all lhe evil designs lhe Communists turn against IJo you attend meetings of any sort? Why not take group votes on the Facts Forum poll questions to stimulate inter- e-l in self-government? Let us know how many voters are represented and the total number of "yes" and "no" votes on each question. See this month's poll on page 65. What they're saying . . . about FACTS FORUM The description below the photograph of the so-called Soviet "Peace Monument" in Budapest Ton page 8 of the August issue of FFNI is erroneous. This statue—also known as the "Tobacco Auctioneer"—is not dedicated to those who defended Budapest. The Auctioneer is dedicated to Red Marshal MalinowskFs Mongols who conquered Budapest and brought the Iron Curtain into the heart of Europe. I just felt that one single word applied the wrong wav has perverted your entire caption.
