When members of the Senate want­td to pass a resolution repudiating the Yalta and Potsdam secret agreements, there was opposition from the White House, via the State Department. After all, it was Roosevelt's back­street affair with Stalin, and not some vague secret agreement which a fu­ture president of the United States may make with our enemies, which has caused all the trouble and plung­ed us into the Korean War wilh 130,- 000 American casualties. Odor Of Fair Deal , Still Clings To Stale Department Dulles' actions in the Vincent mat­ter, in recommending Bohlen as Am­bassador to Russia and in discouraging the passage by Congress of resolu­tions denouncing the Yalta and Pots­dam agreements, indicate that we may not have been far wrong when we sug­gested earlier that the only difference between him and Acheson was a mus­tache. We still hope we're wrong, that he will soon hit his stride and start clean·· ing up the State Department but, so far, he seems to be making progress backwards and getting nowhere fast. ears The Monster of Moscow, in comparison with whom the Beast of Berlin was a gentleman and a scholar, has gone to his reward and Satan's ingenuity will be taxed to devise punishment commensurate with his crimes. Possessed of no personal attainments except guts and gall, this heartless brute of the Russian steppes was able to imprison the bodies, crush the wills and enslave the minds of millions of the earth's population. He successfully intimidated military and political leaders of the Western world and made fools of a prime minister of England and two presidents of the United States. If the long and evil reign of this Siberian savage stresses any particular point, it is that the last few decades constituted an era in human history when the general apathy of all peoples and their abject submission to tyranny eontributed to a universal decline in political morals and produced the most degenerate leadership the world has yet known, of which Russia was the most depraved-but not the sole--example. And now the Man with the Scythe who delivers his impartial summons to peasant and emperor alike, has cro.oked a beckoning finger and Stalin has come to journey's end. In a final accounting he must face the vengeance of the God whose existence he denied, whose temples he destroyed and whose followers he eommitted to the firing squad. Among civilized people hatred halts at the grave; in conventional · human society, death ends all enmity, discharges all debts and finishes all feuds. Under Christian ethics, one does not stab a fallen foe nor scoff at a departing soul in its flight. But in the case of the Bolshevik barbarian, the amenities have been disregarded, the conventions forgotten and the code of common courtesy east aside. Decent people of the world are united in universal gratitude that the man who subjugated human souls, robbed individuals of the right to act aud drained their minds of the capacity to think, has been placed on trial In the Court of Last Resort. And from its verdict-as in the ease of his own cruel decisions-there will be no appeal. Infiltration of Communism in our educational institutions is · hastening the day when the perpetuation of American principles, defense of our form of government and mainten­ance of our national securi~y may devolve almost wholly on those fortunate ones who were too poor to go to College. The majority of the colleges and universities in this country-let's face it-are doing such an effective job of turning out young critics of American economic and social institutions that tomorrow's citizens may disavow all allegiance to the United States and assume no responsibility for its defense in peace or in war. From the time they enter kindergarten- until they emerge from college, American students are more and more becoming the recipients of organ­ized propaganda cleverly designed by high educational authorities to destroy faith in a Constitutional Republic and inspire trust in a Socialist State. The House Un-American Activities Committee is now looking into the matter of infiltration of Communism in American schools and if they con­duct the probe with the vigilance and thoroughness which the people have a right to expect, it will reveal that education in the United States is grad­ually rotting at all levels. During the investigation college professors will continue to rush into print in defense of "academic freedom" and fellow travellers will deplore the "meth<> s" emp o e .) e pose Commu ·s ra s in our i titutions of learning but if the Committee refuses to be intimidated or high-pressured, it will develop that the pattern for a totalitarian world .state is being faith­fully followed by· thosQ who direct the educational policies of the United States. ' While subversive text books are gradually being fed to elementary and high schools and many public school teachers have joined in the conspiracy to pollute the minds of students with Socialist-Communist doctrines, the source of the infection can be traced to a particular institution of higher learning and to a top-bracket educational group. To be specific and localize the original infection ipots, Teachers College at Columbia University was one of the first mediums in this ·country through which Socialist-Communist propaganda was channelled out to other institu· tions of learning and the National Education Association is another original cess-pool of subversion which has helped .to contaminate public schools all over the country. While the infection has now spread to schools, colleges and universities from coast to coast and from the Great Lakes to the Gulf, it was these two groups who laid the original groundwork for the propaganda. A master stroke has been added by educational experts in UNESCO who propose to supplement the spadework already done, take over and con­tribute their professional touch in completing the job of total subversion. Elimination of subversives in colleges and universities will be the most difficult undertaking' and will have to be accomplished by the hard process of Cleaning them out one by one but the public schools can be reclaimed in one single action if some method can be found of completely severing any connection with the National Education Association which largely die· tates or influences the curricula for public school systems. A.s originally set up, the National Education Association was designed to render valuable service in the educational field and did so before its pri­mary purposes were perverted by the Socialists who dominate its policies now. When it was organized in 1857, it required only twenty-four words to outline its sole functions: "To elevate the character and advance the inter­ests of the profession of teaching and to promote the cause of popular edu­cation in the United States". There wasn't another word in its original declaration of purposes. To emphasize and define the only responsibility of teachers in this country Dr. William Russell, president of NEA issued this warning at the opening session at the first meeting in his address: "We would not be understood as desiring the indiscriminate subversion of existing modes of culture or of the institutions to which we have been so largely_indebted .•.

For days the teacher had informed Johnny that If he did not take a bath, the other children would not play with him but nothing happened. When the situation re1ched a point where stern measures had to be taken, the teacher sent a note to Johnny's mother informing her that If he did not take a bath, he would not be permitted to remain in school. Next morning Johnny was back at school as usual but obviously he bad not complied with instructions. However, he brought a reply from his mother explaining the family attitude: "Dere Teecher: We send Johnny to school to be larnt and not smelt". In view of the subversive material being Imparted to adolescent minds, to the exclusion of useful knowledge, perhaps parents of the country should collechvely mform the teachers that they send their children to school lo be ~'larnt" and not propagandized.
