Box 104, West Monroe, La. . .. am in receipt of my first copy of Facts Forum A/euis. I am very well pleased. I like- the very concise, pointed way you sum up the two points of view. . ..

This was the first time for my hearing your program, and I was certainly as- lonnded at the presentation of facts which you dared bring out. . . . Moritz Freeh Carmen, Okla. . . . Yours is a "high-type" program. Maecy of us students hej-e at University of Mi- -ceeiri e-ccjicy it. Keep it up!... George W. Bass 720 Gentry Place, Columbia, Mo. In your Sunday program you askc-el fen criticism — here is mine: After presenting the first side- of the "Fifth Amendment Problem," I thought surely there- was where your sentiments lay, but in going on with the other argument you presented it with so much more enthusiasm that you left me wondering. Please do continue these informative- and timely discussions. Mrs. Phillip Hard Rt. t. Box 617-A, Fort Myers, Fla. timidate employees of the federal government. They put into executive agencies Communist and pro-Communist lawyers, economists, press agents, and obliging so-called "scholars." This is why Harold Glasser and Nathan Gregory Sil- vermaster and Irving Kaplan moved up. This is why Alger Hiss and Harry D. White were lifted to high plans by levers manipulated far from Washington. This is why Lauchlin Currie could be made into a China expert and sent to advise Chiang Kai-shek. The identical process was at work in the press, publishing, magazines, radio. theater, television, and the movies. It was this constant erosion of the pro-Americans in Congress and the executive agencies, and in communications, and their replacement by softheaded pro-Communists, stupid dupes. or greedy power-seekers, which explain the loss of China, the stripping of Korean defenses, the surrender cef Poland, East Germany, Hungary, the Balkans and later Czechoslovakia, the withering away of our magnificent military establishment, the waste of our wealth in international boondoggling, and the prevailing mood of enervation, hopelessness, almost despair. Here we are back in 1954. Ahead is 1955—perhaps the Year of Decision. What must we do? The Communists alone could never have silenced congressional committees. They could never have peopled our government agencies with Communists, pro- Communists, and dupes. '1 bey could never have exercised the dominant influence in shaping American war policies, post-war foreign policy, post-war military policy, and post-war domestic policy. The Communists had allies. COMMUNIST GANGSTERS BUY PROTECTION \\ hen criminals and gangsters start a new kind of racket, they are outlaws, beyond the pale, working against s,,. ciety, like wolves outside a walled settlement. Then comes a second stage where, if they have succeeded, they have money enough to buy respectability, They try- to buy the political parlies, ihe- police. the press, businessmen, unions, banks. Some people can always be bought. \V ilh each success their power grows al geometric rates because they are a conspiracy, all working together from a single point of control. Communism in the I nited Slates today has bought ils way into respectability. It has "protection." It has a cover- ing of well-known public men in respectable institutions, who would never have been rebels or revolutionists or agitators or gangsters but who have been persuaded tee "cooperate" with the Commu nists for filthy gain—for votes. i° fice, for war orders, for publicity ... Irom tear ol reprisal. You would be deeply shocked were lo tell you the name of one ma' a position of great responsibility i" national life, who was talking wit friend of bis. a member of Congress friend had been a New Dealer and reverted to being an old-fashioned '' ocrat.
