■Bird*- In Hand! VOL. 31 NO. 32 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, MAY 9, 1956 7e PER COPY Red Consistency The leaders of the Soviet have at long .last done one consistent thing! Ever since, with the aid of the German^Generall Staff, they stole into Russia and took over a war-torn government, there was one idea of Lenin's which they never forgot. "No nation must be allowed a national hero." Those may not be the exact words, but that was the gist of it. When they sent their sneaky minions into neighboring countries, one of their first assaults wa^s on the character of the heroes. If they could topple them, then they knew they were eating into the moral of the nation and that it, too, would fall. The Communist line in this country was no different. They collected writers, who could — in the guise of "humanizing" history — ridicule our heroes, playing up their fraili- ties, and playing down their accomplishments. I have read one history text book on the Revolutionary War where the writer, in the name of logic subverted every fact. The unknowing student reading it, would turn in disgust from our past. iN'Ow, however, their chickens have come home to roost! The idea, inculcated, for nearly forty years, has home fruit at home. Their own heroes are toppling. Stalin and his cohorts have gone down. One wonders how long it will be ■' before the dust of Lenin, that little Apostle of Hate, will be scattered to the four winds. j The Communists are at least consistent in this — they are destroying the little gods thfey made. Their heroes were; not of marble, grained by the refining of years, but unmixed- clay, too flimsy to last. J ..••■■■ '■• -^heyphf^e'^esgRgiBtenti 'too-ssavihat •U^^stem'-of...trials'. arid purges^, spring and. c<n_nter-spyirig, .lies" told with a smile, and force behind the scenes — all. remain. Only the names of the leaders are different. And how long do you think Bulganin and Kruschev will last? Let the West be consistent, too. We have claimed for years that WE' condemned the idea, the method, and not mere people. The IDEA has not changed — therefore, we must still be alert and watchful at all times! We must not be lulled into false complacency. Eternal Vigilance is still the price of Liberty. Voice Of The Turtle Heard When the lyric author of the "Song of Songs ' wrote of the coming of Spring, he spoke enderly of the voice of the tui-tie-dove. JVJessrs. Krushchev and Bulganin have now departed from tiie. Isles of Britain, but their "turtle" voices degenerated into* something far different before they took their leave. What began as a visit full of pleasant promise somehow altered into a sojurn marred, by threats, bad temper and the astonishing realization that the jjeopl.e. of England do not quake in terror before either the mask of tyranny or the more subtle face of forced joviality. The people of the English speaking world have a tradition forged of determination and idealism. Together, these characteristics have given us strength to face reality in any age, however ominous it may. appear, IVJessrs. Bulganin and Krushchev have suggested in the past that they might enjoy a trip to these United States. If they ever do come, let them beprepared for more of what they encountered in Britain — much more. MoraltyRightePracticallySound Ever since,December, 1953, when. President Eisenhower presented his concept of "Atoms for Peace", the world has been watching for practical results. Those results are by no means just around.the comer, but they are, closer to realization, today, than they have been for some time past. At Washington, our own Government, the Russians and ten other nations have now, agreed upon a program for an International Atomic Energy Agency. This is almost identical witb the original 1953 proposal of President Eisenhower. IAEA would make atomic fuel and scientific data to all countries for peaceful purposes only. "Fissionable material'" for this use would be made available by all countries in possession of the basic goods. / .Next September, the charter as now projected will be submitted to the 84 nations.of the UN for consideration. Maybe we. won't blow up the world after all! New Bill Asks Right of Way Congress is getting ready to clear the road for the new Highway Bill. It has been a' long time a-borning, but it is just about r0£tdy. . Under „the provisions of the program as i^t now*,appears to be.ready, we shall set up' a thirteen "year plan of ro^d construction. It will include a 40,000 mile chain, of modem super highways, financed jointly by the States and our Federal Government. , • ' Y' • '". • Anticipated cost of the work will he over fifty-rone billion dollars ictf which the .Fed"araf share will be, t}iirty-s,even billions phis: To" finance the- cost,' new taxes' bn gasoline, tires and trucks'.over a sixteen year period will be proposecj.
