Questions for the contest must not contain more than 72 characters, including spaces, so as not to exceed one line on the Poll. EACH PERSON MAY ENTER ONLY THREE QUESTIONS IN THE CONTEST. Questions will be judged for their current interest, fairness and conciseness. Keep questions "unloaded." Questions must be worded so that they can be answered Yes or No. SUBJECT FOR PROGRAM: Send questions to be discussed on the FACTS FORUM PANEL programs to Facts Forum, Dallas, Texas. Those who send questions which become the subject of a broadcast will receive a U.S. savings bond.

If winners are already subscribers, they may in turn designate someone whom they want to receive the award subscription. In case of duplication of entries, the one with the earliest postmark will be used. LETTERS to the EDITORS 1st Award THE NATURE OF THE ENEMY To the New York Herald Tribune: In your editorial entitled "Khrushchev Explains," you state: "If Russia wants to end the cold war, it can he done on honorable terms." This would indeed be quite an achievement, con- sidering that the enemy does not know the meaning of "honor." Would not our wisest course be to capitalize on the weaknesses that have lately appeared within the Soviet slave state—and how better accomplish this than by constantly exploiting the issue of the enslaved satellites? Above all, let us not be beguiled by the spectacle of Khrushchev and Co. sipping Scotch in the garden of the American Embassy. We are still dealing with unconscionable cutthroats, no matter how broadly they grin or how many backs they slap. John C Schaefer, Jr. 555 Broadway Hastings-on-Hudson, New York * # » 2nd Award REFUGEES Tei the Baltimore News-Post: Hearings before a subcommittee of the Judiciary to amend the 1953 Refugee Relief Law have been held and il is disturbing to learn of the Presidenl - determination to weaken our basic immigration plan. In 1950 it was estimated that from 2 to 5 million aliens were illegally in the United States. I wish there was a similar zeal on the part of the Administration and Congress to recover our own flesh and blood the hundreds of American citizens still imprisoned by the Reds. Do you suppose that in our time national leaders will think first of what's good for our country? The British leaders do! Mrs. A. F. Jenkins 4000 North Charles St. Baltimore 18, Maryland * # » 3rd Award CONFERENCES WITH REDS To the Sacramento Bee: Four of our presidents refused to recognize Russia hut F.D.R. did. He recognized and supported the Russians. They have heen making suckers out of us ever since. We have conferences with the Russians. We negotiate. We get a piece 'if paper, the Russians get a piece of land. Every time we have anv dealings wilh them they win, we lose. We had better break off diplomatic relations with them and get them out of the UN or else get out ourselves before we become completely brainwashed. Mrs. B. Leonhardl 819 Sixth Street Modesto, California # # » 4th Award NO ASSURANCE To the Boston Post: Your editorial "UNdermining Independence" is strikingly conspicuous among hazy, misleading or actually false press releases customarily offered lo the public, for ils keen perception and clear understanding of the Bricker Amendment issue. Our tendency for wishful thinking and resultant failure to foresee the inevitable ruinous consequences of our political dullness or apathy, from distressing events of the past, is leading us rapidly inward destruction of our representative republic. The UN has already deprived the United States of sovereignly in several instances and ihe status of our commitment as a signer of the UN Charier is of guch uncertain nature lhat we have eil the present time- nn assurance whatever that the laws of any state will be held valid, if tested in connection with our commitment as a signer of that treaty. Mrs. Beatrice ]. Broun 230 Main Street, Brattleboro, Vermont • * « 5th Award THE MAN ON FORMOSA To Time Magazine: This is a bit late, hut I must thank you for the greal service you did with your story on Chiang Kai-shek and Formosa (April 18). My family has lived eill over China for the past 80 years and for three generations. Chiang has done more for the freedom of his people, for advancement of progress, and fnr an open door to the rest of the world than any Chinese leader before him or since. It is a horrifying thing that a man and country can be pushed to ruin by I Communist smear campaign, which was carefully nurtured and spread by foolish and ignorant Communist admirers. Your story gave, all in all. an excellent picture of Chiang, his virtues, faults and tremendous problems. I sincerely hope it brings a hrighl clear light to so many people- who have been very foggy on this issue. Edith Filch Trorchak (Issining. New York Page 62 FACTS FORUM NEWS, October, 1955
