Watkins, Lehman, Lyndon Johnson, Adlai Stevenson, Edward v\. ("Moscow Summer School") Murrow, Harry S. Truman, and Wm. Z. Foster! Hail them all! The heroes appear in this order (we didn't put them there) in Daily Worker editorials from April to September. 1954. They are all there, with J. Edgar Hoover and Sen. McCarthy thrown in as the villains of the piece. And, if you think they're not putting words right into the mouths of the censure boys, read a little further (page 5, March 12) .. ."The terrific response to the anti-McCarthy broadcast by Edward R. Murrow," .. ."the ground swell of popular patriotic hatred against the' bullying, lying, fascist McCarthyism," "the trembling criticism of this fascist conspiracy," .. ."trying to split ihe G.O.P. and capture it," . .. "his star chamber hearings," ... "spy fakeries and witch hunts." And so forth. Hail the heroes! John K. Crippen 716 Merrill \\c. Park Ridge, 1IIi11<>i- 2nd Award POLITICAL PROPAGANDA To the Danville (Ky.) till ovule- Messenger: Many speeches and public- statement* made during the political campaign were an insult to the intelligence and honesty of the American people. With due re- specl and fairness to all concerned, I wonder what level of intelligence do they place on us'.' Evidently, ii is very low the way they shoot their political propaganda at us! They are not fooling any- beeelv lull themselves and ihe unlearned. Il i~ \ery plain to ihe right-thinking person, which should include all the voters nf America, that it is high time for the American people to wake up and see for themselves what will soon happen to us all, if we don't get our eyes wide open to the significance of our times and beware of deceitful and misleading politieans who, apparently, wouldn't stop al anything to get elected!
