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^^

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
The Communists have been making
monkeys out of us lor 30 or 40 years.
Will we never grow up?

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.

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

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
Eor a nation of our size, importance,
and supposed efficiency to stumble into a
