Transcript < If you watch over the next few ?T V , ,'• -,,1 months, you will see a carefully dis- , tor puii "1(ribntetj outcropping of articles in our 'magazines subtly belittling the cultural barbarians who want an investigation of these tax-dodging propagandists. Who 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. Every member of the Communist ap leply shocked lame of one ma esponsibility ,n vas talking wil eer of CongresJ c-w Dealer and ' old-fashioned P1 nt man said I" know soc ialisd lon't you get of ide it for 4 ■ ,• ■■ I socialism iparatus in the United States—every sup- iimunism. ... , .....ejporter, every dupe, and every collab B,,lc "' M,.rU orator -is part of the Soviet military ... _ ||ieeacue is part of Ihe Soviet military . ^apparatus operating within our borders. ,rl;s |parallel with our own government and • 'Jworking to destroy it. ooc-|'" ■ ■oiilrol oD Every bit of support the Communists not make affi^ran m"stl'r—from party members and or call in vvitne,r'uIH's and collaborators—they use, as an and tin'""") "ses a bridgehead, for new advances.

While we were looking for the card- arrying Communists, that is, the gang- d their stupid henchmen, we case of the foil missed the fact that the Communists Id an honored! had bought protection from the rich and the powerful for value received. I say to you that the Communists could never have won the power they .

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 up. 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 punishment. If your faith in America has ever wavered, I say to you—go talk to our 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.
