McCarthy hut as you have just heard
I do know'' communism. 1 have seen
American boys tied with their hands
behind their backs with bullet holes in
the back of their heads. The only thing
to do with a Communist is gel him he-
fore he gets you. That is what he is
ordered to do.
"You cannot argue with him because
his mind is closed. ^ on cannot out-talk
him. He can out-talk you. It is falal
lo appease him. Il is falal lo trust him.
So I am for anybody who hunts them.
If that includes Senator McCarthy, then
I am for Senator McCarthy."

Tee tin- /■'/. Worth Star-Telegram:
It seems the Star-Telegram has taken
particular pains recently to demean Sen-
ator Knowland and his efforls to bring
back to America's protection the 11
American boys we sent out to defend us.
A Dec "• editorial suggests that Senator Knowland should "'step down*' for
daring lo recommend a naval blockade
as a means of forcing Red China to
return our citizens. Tin- front page of
the senile edition reports Presidenl Eisenhower .is considering the 11 I .S. h.evs
ihe responsibility of the I nited \eiiinns.
Mr. Editor, you probably have children, loo: hut I have ei hoy si\ years old.
I have no desire to send him oul. 12
years from now. lo defend a country
which will entrust his safely lo lhe vote
of 60 foreign nations.
Like Senator Knowland. I believe thai
America should defend Americans.

Federal employees are often criticized
ami accused ol being inefficient parasites

LOANS, NOT GIFTS. ABROAD
To the Lone: Reach Press-Telegram:
Vour calling for letting our Senators
and Congressmen know how we object
to such waste as has occurred in the peisi

Also, in the mailer of handouts to
foreign nations. I submit lhal il is aboul
lime thai making them gifts should he-
stopped, especially ees our past lavish
giving seems not to have won us many
good friends, while it has imposed a far
too heavy burden upon the taxpayers.
From now on. why not provide needed
