Transcript rally, they become suspicious, and their interest sags. Czechs and Slovaks behind the Curtain remember those who never compromised with the Communists. They know that these men are now living in the West — the Czechoslovak General of the Army, Lev Prchala, the former Czechoslovak Minister, Dr. Josef Cer- ny. and many others, and also some former members of the National Front who in the free West started to denounce it - Dr. Bohdan Chudoba, Dr. Miclial Zibrin, or Dr. Helena Ko/.o- "ihova. who was expelled in 1946 from the Parliament by the National Front ■l|icl th,. entire younger generation, led "V Jiri Havelka, Emil Petiik, etc. The ■Novaks have- their former Minister.

"nv in what way liberation may be j '"veil, and what specific assistance, I^Vmd mere weirds, the- West might •'hie- to offer. Radio Free Europe has not been able to supply any satisfactory information in respect to this all-important problem. Here, however, we cannot help allowing for valid reasons to excuse much of RFE's inetfectualness; for even if RFE were staffed with outright, hard-hitting anti-Communists, it could not possibly make any promises which the Western governments, particularly the government of the U.S.A., were not willing to back with power. There is no use in claiming superiority in aircraft or guided missiles if that superiority admittedly does not exist. It is not possible to promise an economic blockade as long as that policy has not been adopted by the American government. Radio Free Europe — or any of the other liberation stations — cannot very well offer the severing of diplomatic relations with the Soviet criminals when our own statesmen meet with them at tin- summit and have lots of smiling pictures taken, for the benefit of tile- Soviet leaders. However, if RFE were really (instead of merely in name) an independent and private organization, and really stalled with intelligent and genuine anti-Communists, it could urge Western governments to take stronger steps. liaclio Free Europe might demand the creation of military units exclusively composed of refugee and expellee volunteers. It might demand the ousting of Communists from both international and national organizations. ft might establish extensive contacts with the underground behind the Curtain, instead of causing its discovery and extermination by the Communists.

The trans-Curtain people who long for liberty might at least be informed about where all of us stand. They should know about a long-range program as well as what can be done at this time. Most important of all, Radio Free Europe should become a clear and shining beacon to those who are willing to fight for their liberties. This can only be achieved by throwing out the clowns and confusionists who want to fight communism with a Socialist "people's program." If Radio Free Europe cannot cleanse itself because it is from top to bottom infested with collcctiv ists. internationalists, materialists and decadents, then it would be better to shut it down and replace it with an entirely new organization. Perhaps this great reform cannot be undertaken as long as even in the United States the grass roots patriots, who unequivocally believe in God. the Constitution and freedom of enterprise, are successfully boycotted and ridiculed. Perhaps an effective liberation station can only be established when at last the collectivist corrupters ol the United States are driven from their entrenched positions in America's public- institutions, and her means of communication, and her government itself. f.no We make these times better, if we bestir ourselres. — Benjamin Franklin // treaties are made infringing our liberties, it tvill be too late to say that our constitutional rights are violated. — Patrick Henry A nation's character is the sunt of its splemlid tleeds; they constitute one common matritttotty. the nation's inheritance.
