American business accepts and acts on that. Last year in this country, 88,1 15,100,000 was "Pent on advertising.

Time-tested practices and procedures are inadequate to safeguard Freedom. Employing the besl of them with a | pie of whom al leasl 85 per cent are nol only loyal, lint lake pride- in their loyalty to their country, we are still losing the battle at home. As to the danger of being taken from abroad, we think in terms nl safeguarding our grandchildren. It seems quite unselfish and noble lo concern ourselves with the fate which might befall our grandchildren. In ihis we set up a time schedule for the enemy. and the indication is the enemy will not use our lime schedule al all but continue exerting constant pressure on us in every circle in which we live and move. The third generation may puzzle why their grandparents failed lo save their own scalps when they had the mightiest country in the world in which in protect themselves. We are prone to overlook that we are losing to an enemy who has been actively fighting in the open only thirty- eight years. Il was .is recent as 1917 when our enemies discarded their humanitarian disguise and look the prac tical step e>f selecting a dictator necessary for them to function. They then started with a handful of people in a very hackward nation. MISTAKEN People lire of trying to differentiate between Communists, Reds, Pinks. Pinkos. Fellow Travelers, Fifth-Amendment Witnesses, etc., and the tenor of the names erroneously suggests a degree of guilt. These malefactors, often referred to as the enemy because they arc the opposing and deadly enemy of Patriots. mighl better be grouped under the name "MISTAKEN." The name gives them the benefit of the doubt, while leaving them in differentiate among themselves and decide for themselves their place in the picture and lhe harm, if any. which they may do. Loose thinkers may place those they call New Dealers. Left-Wingers and Liberals among the enemy, bul there is nothing subversive aboul advocating new social measures, practices thai e,,,ul,l be considered Left-of-Center according to European standards, and Liberal construction eel personal and tACfg Be sure am. 1 see page 4S property rights. Neither of lhe great philosophies has a monopoly on Patriotism. The Free World will be saved by the followers of one or the oilier of the great philosophies, hut never lev the wholly indefinite and uncertain Middle- of-the-Road thinking which is the stronghold of entrenched apathy, capable of sen ing nothing. Thc different names for the non- Patriot now in use cannot fix a degree of guilt. The net harmful effect of their activities is much the same whether the) are mistaken in believing that the ugl) means they employ to undermine our cherished American way of life are jusli- fied hy lhe greal humanitarian oh- jectives they visualize, whether tiny are simply duped hy others more devious. or whether some strange split personal itv complex prompts them into mistaken willingness to offer America in sacrifice I,i an almighty Stale. Patriots should keep out of name- calling contests. The MISTAKEN false!) parading under a banner of humani- tarianism will best the Patriots in a name-calling lest. The MISTAKEN, greatly in lhe minority, assume the role of the oppressed, and thus capitalize on the tendenc) nl' lln- American | pie to be "for the underdog." The Patriot"* cannol outmanage lln- MISTAKEN because of lhe latter's training, adroitness and versatility, coupled with duplicity. However, the Patriot, accurate in his thinking, can more than offset this adroitness h\ out-thinking the MISTAKEN, who think as lhe name implies. The Patriot musl appeal to reason rather than prejudice or sympathy—act gently, firmly ami aggressively, and above all, persistently, to make and keep individual libert) sen nil. He- must learn that he cannot modestly save free society. He musl make himself known and heard. In doing so. while he may im- press with humility, he musl permit no uncertainty as to his loyally to countn and I,» free society.
