Transcript 6th Award ON FEDERAL AID TO COMMUNITIES To the Houston Chronicle: Many areas of the country (including Houston) apparently are unable to provide adequate police protection for their citizens. Since equal protection is guaranteed to all citizens, I propose that federal funds be made available to these areas so that local police forces can be implemented. Of course, Ihis woulel mean some- federal interference in local law enforcement and the concentration of a greal ele-al eif power iii the hands of the person who administers these funds. However, since all politicians who wind up in Vi ashington are automatically men of unquestioned integrity and honesty, one should have little fear thai this power would be abused. Certainly America is incapable of producing a Himmler or Gestapo. We have no more to fear from federal aid to local police forces than we have from Federal aid i<> education, social welfare, or any other function that is thc prime responsibility of the immediate community. Patrick Black 5405 Ashhy St.. Houston. Texas * « # 7th Award RED THREAT To the I.ns Angeles Times: Twenty-four years ago, Russia's Dmitry /.. Manuilski, who was later to chair tin- ( nited Nations Security Council in 1949, said: "War to Ihe hill between communism and capitalism is inevitable. Toda\. "I course, we are not strong enough In attack. Our time will come in 2d years or 30 years. To win we shall need the element of surprise. The I geoisie w ill have- to be put to sleep. We shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There will be electrifying overtures and unheard-of concessions. The capitalist countries, itupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap al another chance ie> 1"- friends. Ks soon ei- their guard is down we shall ■mash them with our clenched fist."

Riviera Country Club Pacific Palisades. California * * # 8th Award union labor To the San Antonio Light: As a lifelong friend of labor. T fear 'nat the sort of automation union labor ttlusl guard against is where lhe union laborer obeys the boss as the automatic "lae-hine- obeys the touch eef its operator en as leileoi obeys in Russia and Red China. The men responsible for GAW pretend that they want to create a favored caste at the expense of the general public which in itself is disgusting lo American labor which wants a fair break and does nol want to conspire against the people of the nation. However, when Socialist labor dictators and Socialisl industrial tycoons get together it does not make for a favored caste but instead Russian-type socialism. The grin on the faces of these conspirators does not indicate pious joy- over a victory for "the downtrodden masses." 11 deie-s register unholy glee over a personal triumph. John II'. Bashaw P. 0. Box 727 Carrizo Springs. Texas a is * 9th Award MORE WASTED MONEY To the Huston Post: The question has been asked: Whal has become of the American tradition of courage? What has become of the spirit of our forefathers, the spirit tlieet brought these men across the ocean to carve their homes out of the wilderness? ll is not in the traditional spirit that one blast from Communist propagandists should cause our national leaders In slink with fear and beg for money to offsel tliis barrage of words flooding our country. The money jusl voted by Congress for our propaganda will be more to be thrown away by the United Stales Information Agency and Voice of America. The two agencies bene never pictured America and her people excepl as fools and braggarts. Never once do they give a true picture of the hard-working. Godfearing, generous people of America who have given so much of Iheir "blood. sweat and tears," that the resl of the world may be free. Mrs. Eleanor 0. Price Route 2. Dover. New Hampshire # « * 10th Award "STASSENISM" To the New York Journal: With plenty of American families not being able to make ends meet, we have Harold E. Stassen pleading for $40,- 000.000 for Tito and S70.000.000 for India. Remember when Japan hit us with our own steel? Well, some day Tito and Nehru will hit us with this "'Stassen steel." A. F. Sheekey 1710 West St. Union City, New Jersey 11th Award OPPOSES FEDERAL AID TO SCHOOLS To the Dallas Ncus: If Southern stales expect to continue in control of their school systems, they will stay clear of federal grants. Any federal grant will have strings tied lo il that will lake all rights away from the Slate Legislature, thus compelling the citizens of each state not only to teach what is prescribed by the government, bul it would give the government power to seat any race, color or creed as it sees fit. This federal grant is another means of tenure over the American people. The billion-dollar federal grant as proposed is merely a drop in the bucket when scattered over the whole U. S. and its possessions compared to the value of our money today. It is a known fact that many of our states maintain educational facilities that are far superior lo what the District of Columbia has. and it is under the control of the federal government. William E. Wells Box 537. (.iiiwcll. Texas 12th Award CALLS IMMIGRATION A THREAT To the Louisville Courier-Journal: The immigrant has brought greatness and everything else to our land. Let us stop and think what else; enough is enough. The lime has come to call a halt. We have all we can do to care for our own people. Let Europe care for her surplus people, using up the vast wealth stored over there. Soon we will be overpopulated, our ideals trodden underfoot. Charity begins at home. We owe our children a chance. Our ancestors came to a wild, new land and made it what it is. It is ours and we want it. Many of those who im- migrate hen- will be used by political machines and be voted in blocs to rob us of our dearly-bought liberties. I pro- tesl ei soft immigration policy as a threat to our freedom and our national welfare. Lillian Pearl Liter Route 1, Bedford. Kentuckv * # # 13th Award HOOVER'S CONTRIBUTION To the Washington Post: One- would expect public clamor for action on the Hoover Commission's recommendations for vital economics and efficient practices in government. Bul powerful vested interests have contrived a climate of stony silence. Evidently, most of us who were wringing our hands about "lhe mess in Washington" are sitting on them now instead of urging the White House and Congress In acl on the report. Surely, here is the blueprint we voted for to make Washington unsafe for bureaucracy. Herbert Hoover, in referring to his whipping boy stains, once wryly observed: "They even named a depression after me." Certainly his monumental effort to get the monkey off the backs of American taxpayers should coin the FACTS FORUM NEWS. October, t»5i Page 63
