Forbidden FruiS? COLUMBUS, OHIO Ohio State Museum Columbus 10, Ohio 1-957 'P?y-ymnr*mtrir,g-tr >ir«iotwn^irr»i>tiinrTiin^iiffiiiiffBrTnnt^mi<irriffii'iiiirrmi>,'iiii n ni »im 'hlii Another "Day Of Infamy" Those outrages against national honor, tradition and duty known as the Status of Forces agreements and treaties, now in effect -with some 50 countries, have been brought into sharp focus for Americans by recent events. One is the charge that the Formosan riot which sacked the U.S. Embassy and the USIA office in Taipeh would not have happened if we had had such a treaty with Formosa and had turned over to local justice the fate of the Army sergeant who shot and killed a "peeping torn" spying >on his home. Acquittal of the sergeant by an Army oourt- martial is regarded by irate Formosans, we1 are told, as a "whitewash". '■ More"significant is the decision by the Commander in Chief, himself, President (and former General) Eisenhower that Sergeant W. S. Girard, ,of Ottowa, III., will be turned over to Japanese courts for "inflicting bodily injury causing the death" of Mrs. Naka Sakai on a firing range last- Jan. 30. Sergeant Girard was on duty, guarding U.S. property. Mrs. Sakai, in defiance of posted warnings, was salvaging empty shells fired on the range. Since the incident, the sergeant's case has provided a tug-of-oold-war between the State Department which wanted to turn him over to the importunate Japs, and the Defense Department which originally did not. But the President, who signed the agreement, lias decreed Japanese justice for Girard. - All of which should recall the consistent stand of The American Legioni against the Status of Forces agreements and its repeated demands for the repeal of these and similar agreements. And the Girard decision returns the spotlight to the telegram of protest sent to the President only a few days ago by the National Commander Dan Daniel, of Danville, Va. t ' "If our Government allows Japanese courts," wired Commander Daniel, "to try and punish Girard for an unfortunate accident that occurred while he was on duty, then the Status of Forces Treaty and similar agreements are an even more inexcusable betrayal of the trust and rights of American servicemen stationed overseas to defend the freedoms which we so proudly proclaim in the Bill of Rights, including the right of trial by jury and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. "It is not William Girard. who is on trial." the Commander continued. "Rather, it is our government. If our Government abandons Girard to Japanese justice (which it has now done), it will have notified the world that we will defend freedom for everyone except our own military personnel serving abroad." The President has, by his action, answered Commander Daniel. He has answered the American people. He has answered the armed forces that he once led in the greatest struggle for human justice the world has yet seem He has answered American youth that must soon be sworn to defend a Constitution that will not defend them.

We have concentrated on the evil they have done, even more than we have on what was, and is, back of it. Because spreading out to overwhelm free peoples, having first softened their resistance by stirring up divisive- ness among them, is so monstrous an evil in itself, we have overlooked the greater danger, the greater menace. The acts of aggression, the destruction of freedom, the cruelties they continue to perpetrate, even while they turn a smiling benign face to the world, are in themselves but a means to an end. Because we have been so intent upon the visible expression and our sympathies so roused over the savageries, such as we have witnessed so recently in Hungary, we have glossed over the end toward which they were striving. We have correctly called their propaganda attacks, attacks upon the mind, but do we realize how deep is this truth? Do we realize that they are an attack upon our mental balance, even upon our sanity itself? Our greatest safeguard • against their inlsidious campaign against our'way of life, is the unity — the de- selectivity — of our people. True, the Communists — as did the other totalitarian would-be-masters —: fight us by trying to stir up trouble among our people, setting class against class, color against color, creed against creed. But ■— they do this not just to cause trouble — but to destroy our personal integrity. As lo^g as we hold to our ideals, we are strong. As long as we stand by the principles embodied in .the Constitution and in the Bill of Rights, we are safe. As long as we have the orderliness of brotherhood firmly entrenched in our hearts, the spirit of men working together for the commo.ni good, we are invincible. If they could destnoy our virtue, we would collapse. And it is at our virtue that the attack is made — not in a frontal assault, but with the same sniping tactics they used so effectively overseas. If we are unfair to our own minprities — and the minoi-ities unfair to the majority, if we permit ourselves to be spurred into demanding special rights and privileges for our own group, no matter what the group is — we are playing right into their hands. Let us face clearly the fact that they are skilled strategists not only on the battlefield, but on that other battlefield which is our mind. If we cannot win there, if we" cannot put aside prejudice, self-interest, selfishness — we .are indeed betrayed. Let us be yarned — and ever, alert.
