OBUM News, March. 1956 First Award BORROWING FROM PAUPERS To the Ambler Gazette: Those who promote federal aid to edu- catjon base all their arguments on the fallacy that only federal aid will solve our present school problems. The fact is that the indebtedness of the U. S. government is greater than the sum total of the indebtedness of all oilier governments on earth — including our 48 slate governments. On a per capita basis, even our poorest states are more solvent than our federal government. Our federal government gets all its revenue from these same 48 states and is, therefore, less able to supply funds for education or anything else than are the slates. The surest way for the U. S. taxpayer (o gel less lor their money in almost every field is to let the ledeni ment do it. M^^ Mns. Philip L. Corson Ona Locka, Florida Second Award COMMUNISM In the Inland Veteran: Communists have hut one fatherland — Russia — and they arc told to turn their weapons against their own government, whether il he the United States, England. Canada, fiance or any other land. Stalin, the most ruthless and bloody dictator in history, said, "The moment is not far off when a revolutionary crisis will lie unleashed in America: ... it will mark the beginning of the end of world capitalism; tlie Communist party of the United Slates must he aimed to he able to meet that historical moment and to head the forthcoming class combats. It is inconceivable that the Soviet Republic should continue for a long period side by side with imperialist states. Ultimately one or the other must conquer." The directives laid down by Marx. Lenin, and Stalin have never been laid aside. The Communists have been making monkeys out of us lor 30 or 40 years. Will we never grow up? Thomas H. Biemz P. O. Box 308 Spokane 63, Wash. Third Award DANGEROUS TRENDS PERIL U. S. FREEDOM To the Sen Diego (rnton: There must he someone among ns who knows the reason why we are threatened with failure to show the world that we believe in democracy down to the last eligible voter. We held the world's highest voting record in the horse-and-buggy days. Why have we lost this honor, in spite of today's greater voting convenience? Can anything replace the security that comes from voluntary public support? With thanks to our civic leaders, we have all been properly instructed to vote. What, then, can we do to stop this dangerous trend? Can we save our neglected freedom from the same fate? Would a reborn public interest in government affairs have any connection with solving today's crime and mental problems? Let's enjoy our freedom here and now. Elmer O. Dahl 60 i Iona Lane St. Paul 13, Minnesota CASE OF BITTELMAN To the Boston Post: The Communists are certainly wise in the ways of the world. Having infiltrated our government in the 30's the) set up such Socialist agencies as the Social Security Administration. Now they reap the reward for their work. As an example on a small scale of what the Communists are doing on a large scale, take the case in point of the native Russian, long-time top Communist and founder of the Communist partx in the United States, Alexander Bittelman. Alexander Bittelman today is in the federal penitentiary, hut he is also collecting $88 a month in social security ihecks. All the Communists have to do now is smile a little harder and men like Bittelman will be pardoned. Bittelman then will be free to use this little nest egg of social security checks once again to further the Socialist-Communist cause in America. Philip E. O'Connell 18 Whitcomb Terrace South Weymouth, Mass. A SAFEGUARD NEEDED To the \\'all Street journal: It appears that only an irregular heartbeat ma) separate efficiency from inefficiency in our federal government. Although the nation should have heen warned b) President Wilson's stroke on October 2. 1919. that our constitutional provisions governing the presidential powers needed revision, nothing has been done, except to change the order of presidential succession, in the 36 years between Wilson's stroke and Eisenhower's heart attack. Eor a nation of our size, importance, and supposed efficiency to stumble into a V Page 61
