are the masterminds of this smear campaign? Why?
To accept this shocking picture, we
must remember one thing—Soviet communism is not a "party" and not an
ideology. It is not a left-wing political
movement. It is an army trained and
drilled and officered by Moscow.

Does thai mean we are lost? Yes, if
esjw'e do not wake up. No, if we learn to
fight today's political war with today's
political weapons. Politically we are
fighting Soviet hydrogen bombs with
antiquated machine guns. Perhaps we
are still exhausted, drugged with propaganda, shell-shocked from the wars.
Whatever the reason, it is time to wake
I believe our only need is to wake up.
If the American people will put their
innate courage and intelligence to the
task of driving out the collaborators
with communism, we can be rid of communism itself in short order.
AMERICA'S HEART IS SOUND
The heart of America is sound, whatever corruption may be found at the top.
Recently I have been holding hearings
in Washington on the activities of one
John Powell, son of a famous American
editor in Shanghai, a Japanese war
prisoner. Every time young Powell was
asked about bis Communist connections.
he invoked the Fifth Amendment. We
had sworn testimony and visual proof
of how he bad perverted bis father s
time-honored Shanghai English-language
paper to help the Red Chinese.
We had as witnesses several American fighting men who had been POW's
in Ked Chinese prisons. They told us
how each issue of Powell's China Review
was given to them, together with the
Daily Worker and Masses and Mainstream. Imagine! American soldiers
were compelled to read this traitor's
magazine and repeat to their monitor
what was in it or they would get no food
or medicine. One young widow told us
how her husband died as a result of the
If your faith in America has ever

returned prisoners of war who spent,
some of them, nearly three years under
Red tormentors. Listen to the young
corporal, Page Thomas Baylor, who was
put in "the bole" time and again without food or water. When he came out of
"the hole," he knew his mind was giv
ing way. He cut his nails down to the
quick and scraped them in the sand as
hard as he could. He scraped and
scraped, and the pain slowly brought
him back to the outside world. When
doubt creeps up on you. think of this
young Negro corporal far from home
and family, scraping his raw and bleeding fingers in the sand so the pain would
keep him from slipping into madness.
There was a young Air Force officer
from my own state of Indiana, Captain
Waldron Berry. He became morale officer for his unit. Think of it—a young
man of twenty-five carrying the burden
of upholding prisoners in Red Chinese
hands. He lold us how the Americans,
to keep up their spirits, planned a "crazy
week" when they had bridge games
without any cards, a basketball game
without anv ball.
