DOWN MEMORY LANE
Your October issue of Facts Forum
Seas brought home old memories. The
article. "Selections from the Great Pretense," carried a picture ancl short quote
from Dr. Wladyslaw Kulski, Professor of
Internationa] Relations at Syracuse University. 1 remember Dr. Kulski quite well,
as his first teaching assignment xvas at the
University of Alabama for approximately
five years. As a political science major, I
hael the pleasure of having Dr. Kulski as
my professor tor sc-xe-nil classes. Both he
anil Mrs. Kulski, M.D., were student
favorites. Mrs. Kulski taught French, and
both she- ancl Dr. Kulski spoke se-ven or
eight languages fluently.
His first-hand knowledge of "chess-
hoard" diplomacy ranks with that of
Count Sforza and Roucek. His realistic
outlook, tempered xxith diplomacy and
immense integrity, certainly places him
as an outstanding authority on The Soviet
Regime, Cinniiuinisiii iii Practice. 1 look
forward to reading his book xxith a great
deal of interest.
As a historian and teacher, I commend
you for your manner of presentation of
controversial nexxs. 1 think, too. that the
documentation in articles is excellent. I
urge you to continue the polic-x you have
in informing the American public.

MORE ABOUT THE PROFESSOR
For the past year I have been a diligent reader of your magazine, anel have
tried to get others interested in reading
same. The reasons for my doing this anil
tor nix- intense liking of your magazine is
th.at it isn't trying to cram anything down
our throats, hut gives hoth sides of the
picture and allows an average person to
effectively come to his own conclusions.
Last month I submitted the- name of
one of my former professors, "Wladyslaw
Kulski. Professor of International Relations at Syracuse University," for a
sample copy ot your splendid magazine.
Therefore, when I s.txx tin- excellent
article on page 25 of your October. 1956,
issue pertaining to him, I xxas happily
thrilled. He impressed me so greatly during my four months as his student in
"World Politics" (January-May, 1956)
that it gave me a great lift to know Farts
Forum iVetes has seen fit to gixe- him the
much-deserved respect for his \xork in
making America aware of the- Communist

PRAISED AND APPRAISED
Congratulations on your excellent presentations in the- October issue ol Facts
Forum News of "The Great Pretense"
and John C. Caldwell's penetrating
article, "Heel China — UN Volcano."
Your October issue displays once again
the forthrightness and objectivity that
your publication so expertly employs in
its able and accurate presentations of
both sides of controversial issues. These,
I feel, are- just a few ot (lie many quali-
tie-s which have helped Facts Forum
News develop not only into one of the
most patriotic anel informative publications on the newsstand today, hut also
into an effective instrument for dispelling
apathy and misinformation — two factors
which have made obvious inroads into

STRIKING A BLOW
FOR LABOR UNIONS?
In the Max issue of Facts Fornm
News, in the- article- "Are Right-to-Work
Laws Right?" [the NO "side" contains]
tlie statement, "These laws prevent
unions from expanding." This is not so.
Thex elo not prevent voluntary expansion.
II labor unions are a good thing, and I
believe they are, they xsill expand by
virtue of their merit as fast as they can
organize and assimilate new members.
Forcible expansion is slavery.

I have read Mr. Caldwell's interesting
article on "Red China — UN Volcano,"
and go along xvith him most of the way.
However, I believe he is wrong concerning Fonnosan restrictions on immigration
and picture t.iking.
1. Formosa, due to its close proximity to
Red China, must perform the dual role
of carrying on free enterprise, whu"
serving as a security bastion.
2. Formosans, being well acquainted
with Communists, do not underestimate their slyness and trickery ',s
spies, which is a political acknowledgment we in the United States cannot
3. If people visiting Formosa wish a picture of the- government building, thejj
by all means let them buy a post card
— personalities xxill not be involved!
iii-ilhe-r xxill landscape changes.
t. It seems that aggressiveness of frce'
enterprise nations who xvould help
Formosa has been neutralized by UN
