told our staunch friend, Spain, is being
halved to 28 million dollars.
If taxpayers had anything to say
about it, do you suppose they would
pour more billions into Italy with her
one-third communistic vote? Most of
us believe the money could be spent
at home with better results.
Let's stop pouring money into countries where they have signs up, "Americans, Go Home." These signs prove
once again that you cannot buy

ON THE FORD FOUNDATION
To the New York Herald Tribune:
Page 24 of Tuesday's Herald Tribune contained two very interesting,
On the one hand, H. Rowan Gaither,
Jr., president of the Ford Foundation,
which financed the planting of a hidden microphone in a jury room, complained about "irresponsible criticism"
of tax-exempt foundations.
On the other, Dr. Robert M. Hutch-
ins, president of the controversial Ford
Fund for the Republic, defended his
hiring of Communist and ex-Commu-
nists to work on the Fund's supposedly
"objective" studies and projects in the
field of communism and civil liberties.
To this reader, it would seem that
both Messrs. Gaither and Hutchins
should follow their own advice and
adopt a more "responsible" attitude in
the launching and staffing of projects
financed out of tax-exempt profits from
the sale of Ford products.

NO MONEY TO BE HAD?
To the Hartford Courant:
U. S. Army Engineers say that $175.-
000,000 spent 1(1 years ago would have
prevented much of the recent flood
damage in New England. "The money
just wasn't to be had," the article
states. Since 1915. the United States
has cast broadside throughout the
world some -S32 billion. Charity apparently doesn't begin at home.

To the Dallas News:
The government says the farmer's
income is down and the man who buys
these products at retail says they are
up. What is wrong?
Does the working man have to pay
both price supports to the farmer and
high prices for farm products? It
doesn't make sense to me. Somewhere,
from farmer to retail buyer, some
people must be hiding away plenty of
"green." I think a big chunk of our
national debt is caused by the agricultural program.

To the Fort Worth Star Telegram:
You are to be congratulated on your
editorial "School Aid Not Federal Responsibility" in the Nov. 6 paper. No
one should be duped by the advocates
of federal aid to education who call
for "adequate safeguards to preserve
traditional, local control." It would be
like believing in the mythological
If freedom is to be preserved in
this country, there can be only one
yardstick by which to measure any
proposal — the question "Does it increase or decrease the centralized
power in Washington?" If a proposal
increases centralized power in Washington, it is bad and should be rejected regardless of the stated motivation.

ALL SHOULD VOTE
To the Boston Post:
Many of our citizens have sounded
off on the condition today of our government, states, cities and towns. I
wonder just how many do really vote?
I have heard people talk and kick
about things but when they have a
chance to do something about it by
voting, they let it slip by.
Most people who do the sounding
off are those who do not take the time
or effort to cast, votes for the candidates of their choice or register their
opinion for or against any amendment
on the ballot.
However, it has alwavs been my
opinion that the people who fail to
vote do not have the right to criticize
and thus forfeit their privilege to
criticize those elected. Mow about exercising your privilege by voting for
(he candidates of your choice in the
1955-56 general election.
