Transcript ed with the task ol championing our Principles of trust in God and our responsibilities as free men. Th,- music offered by RFE, at 10:05 SVery morning, and at other hours, accords with the confusion, savagery and hopelessness of the literary products which these men favor. Most of it [J,jazz in the version of the squeaking disharmonies and noises of primitives, 0r of complex men who flee from their "un souls. The West is rich in music °t the highest inspiration. RFE seems "ot aware of this mighty force in our behalf. The Communist station in Prague ooes hitter. The Communists, mindful °f national heritage, play Snietana and Pvorak, the great music of the Czech People-. Thev benefit by these magnifi- j*J*t works. But Radio Free Europe broadcasts jazz - alien, uninspiring sh'ff. Some of the less influential employees on Radio Free Europe have Protested against these low and dc- pading performances. Thev were told ""11 above to go on producing jazz.

D. Roosevelt." rope Without the Iron Curtain" stated: "The world federation is a necessity; but first Europe must be united. The European federation is but the beginning; the United States of the World is the ultimate aim . . . First a European federation must be achieved; then we shall be ready for the world federation." In accordance with this candidly avowed goal, RFE continually disparages the concept of national sovereignty, which is clear to the overwhelming majority of Europeans. Thus "Comments on Events at Home," on April 28, 1953, at 10:45 a.m., slightingly referred to "the- so-called national sovereignty. "Europe Without the Iron Curtain," on May 5, 1954, at 1:15 p.m., stated: "On the defendant's bank there sits the concept of the national state and its ideological foundation — nationalism. Frontiers — the straitjacket of the national state — are an anachronism." The- United Nations and UNESCO — a controversial topic among millions of Europeans — are favorites of RFE. "The United Nations gives new hope," said "News," on October 24, 1953, at I p.m. 'The whole world looks toward the United Nations," said "Who Is Who," on April 22, 195.3, at 8:30 a.m. Such statements are daily standard with Radio Free Europe. Ever opposed to nationalism, RFE even objects to national self-determination of the many non-Russian nations inside the Soviet empire. It stands to reason that national sell- assertion inside Russia might be a powerful aid to anv effort aimed at disintegration of the Soviet Union. Consequently this is opposed by RFE's amazing bleeding hearts. Thus, "Voices of the Western Press," on Feb- riiarv S, 1952. at 8 p.m. quoted: "Russia should not dissolve herself into a number ot smaller nations; the nations of the Soviet Union should discontinue their disputes." In its determined opposition to the concept of national heritage, and in harmony with the ideas favored 'by such American left-wing groups as Americans for Democratic Action, RFE, in programs addressed to the trans-Curtain people, goes so far as to attack the McCarran-Walter Immigration Act. Thus, "Our New York Correspondent Reports," on April 29, 1953, at 10:05 a.m., declared: "The public wants the law to be changed; for the nationality quotas of this law are obsolete . . . The press unanimously demands revision. We hope that the change will be effected." Beyond mere political merger of the nations, Radio Free Europe also campaigns for a merger of races. Thus, for instance, "Europe Without the Iron Curtain," on February 15, 1952, at 6:15 p.m., declared: "just as Europe, in a way, already represents a nation . . . there also arises a new nation in the U.S.A. — out of the white, the black, and the yellow races . . . This too will happen in the East of Europe." Along this line, RFE's left-wingers seldom fail to disguise their animosity towards those nations which they regard as particularly nationalistic — against the past Germany, Spain, the Union of South Africa, and the various Arab nations. RFE's persistent opposition to the Arab states sometimes reaches comical proportions. An article in itself would be required to document this phase of RFE's internationalism. PRAISE FOR NEW DEALERS AND CRITICISM OF CONSERVATIVE AMERICANS In line with its over-all outlook. Radio Free Europe has consistently glorified American New Dealers and has at the same time not refrained from merciless attacks on conservative Americans. In other words, RFE, which should concentrate on psychological warfare against the Communist world conspiracy, has indulged in the hobby of defaming valiant American anti-Communists. No wonder that wide-awake Europeans have ever more often asked if RFE is primarily an anti-anti-Communist organization. "Answers to Those at Home," on October 28, 1952, at 10:05 a.m., proclaimed: "Stevenson vvas a principal speaker at the celebration for T. G. Masaryk. (Founder and first president of the Czechslovak republic.—Editor.) Our hope for the future would be rekindled if he were elected President ol the United State's." On November 4, 1952. at 10:05 a.m., the same program reveled in this choice bit of lyrical effusion: "Adlai Page 45
