Transcript [Readers IVeport . . . Of, by, and for Facts Forum Nev/s readers Disarming Suggestion Mr. C. V. Grooms, 309 Weston Bldg., Clinton, Iowa, wrote the Des Moines Register and Tribune protesting the article in a Sunday edition finis Week Magazine), "Get Rid of That Gun," by Mr. Bruce Smith, calling attention to the fact that our Constitution provides that "the right of the people to keep and hear anus shall not be infringed." "Mr, Smith forgot to mention," Mr. (-rooms' published letter continued, "that the revolvers which Great Britain is destroying are the very ones contributed to them by patriotic Americans dining World War II, You see. the Englishman was not allowed to own firearms and when the threat of a German invasion was present, an appeal was made for good old Uncle Sam to supply guns (any kind were welcome) in order to protect a citizenry long since disarmed." Mr. Grooms has written to us about this letter: "I, like any other member of the American Rifle Association, am concerned about any article slanted towards the disarming of the American citizen. ... It is most interesting to note that the Des Moines Register deleted my reference to communism. . . . One of the first steps in the initial promotion of a communistic state is to disarm the citizenry. Somewhere along the line it also becomes necessary to change the structure of the existing form of government." Mr. Grooms suggests that implementation of the individual disarmament recommended by Mr, Smith's article would serve the Communist cause in two respects: first, in effecting a change in the Constitution necessan to eliminate the ownership of firearms, and second, by s.i king to disarm our citizenry. May This Tribe Increase! Mr, Salvatore Solimine, 7 Henchman St., Boston 13, M.iss.. writes that only eight of the forty-eight states require by law the teaching of our Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and that these states are: California, Illinois. New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Wisconsin and Minnesota. The following resolution was drawn up by Mr. Solimine and passed by his American Legion Post, North End No. 53, and the Sul- folk County American Legion, and has beer referred to the Massachusetts Department ol tiie American Legion for further action: Whereas, the true principles of Americanism nre not unheld and respected throughout our great Nation; and whereas, eontJnutng on this present <-Mir-i' will lead to the destruction of out way of life; .mil Whereas, only eight nut of thf 48 states of our great Nation require by law the teaching from kindergarten to university of our Dei Hon nf Independence, the Constitution anil Bill of Rights as .i required teaching course: lie it further Resolved, that the C monwealth of Massachusetts pass a law requiring i teaching course of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and Hill of Rights. Fund for the Republic Questions Mental Health of Bricker Supporters ''According to a speech by Senator Bricker." writes Mrs, Paul Conollev, 774^ Bryn Mawr. Hal las. Texas, "The Fund for the Republic has distributed 25.000 reprints nt an article by Professor Richard Hofstadter of Columbia University entitled "The Pseudo- Conservative Revolt,' in which he defines the Bricker Amendment as 'one of the primary symptoms of pseudo-conservatism'." "Their political reactions," according to Professor Hofstadter, "express rather a profound if largely unconscious hatred of our society and its ways — a hatred which one would hesitate to impute to them if one did not have suggestive clinical evidence. From clinical interviews and thematic appercep tion tests, Adorno and his co-workers found that their pseudo-conservative subjects . . . show . . . 'violence, anarchic impulse, and chaotk' destructiveness in the unconscious sphere*. . . . The pseudo-conservative tends to he more than ordinarily incoherent about politics . . . and the most ardent supporters of the Bricker Amendment. . . . Some organizers of pseudo-conservative and 'patriotic' groups often find in this work a means o{ making a living - thus turning a tendency toward paranoia into a vocational asset. . . ." Professor Hofstadter implies, according to Senator llricker's Speech, that the Ku Klux Klan is the spiritual ancestor of organizations supporting the Bricker Amendment and core eludes that in recent years pseudo-conserva- tives have raised standards of hating and thus: ". . . have moved on from anti-Negro- ism ami at it i-Set i lit ism to auti-Achesonian- ism, anti-intellectuallism, anti-conformism." "Politics a Specialty" For New Book Shop The Cadmus Book Sliop recently opened at 1246 Wisconsin Avenue, NA\'., Georgetown, Washington, D. C. The young proprie tors have announced that they will specialize in politics, and will handle books of "off-the- road publishing houses that have found it difficult to market their hooks in Washington." They propose to stock reports, pamphlets, speeches, etc., such as the American I .< gion light on I'XKSCO, speeches by Dies.
