That is the situation the world finds itself in right now with the Communists determined to rule all of the world. They are forced into that position by their own ad- mission that Communism will not work until all of the world is con- verted to it. Free people do not want any part of atheistic Communism but they haven't had much choice under the Communist takeovers, often from within. Thus to preserve the peace and freedom they want free people Waseca [Minn.)Journal "It is up to us to defend liberty and justice. "If we bomb civilians Just to win the war we would be reverting to savagery. But, if we ever stop bomb- ing military targets in North Viet Nam they'll swoop down and we'll have a real war." The Archbishop is of the opinion that doves advocating peace at any price or an end to the bombing are prolonging the war.

LIFE magazine has serialized the "life story of Stalin's daughter. The October 3rd issue of "Look" is de- voted entirely to the Soviets, and to advertisers who paid the brainwash- ing bill, of course. Celebrating the Soviet Union's 50th anniversary, "Look" sent a team of 10 Editors and photographers to Rus- sia. It is remarkable how little truth they came back with. "It (Communism) works," "Look" proclaims. So do cesspools and fir- lag quads. According to "Look," "Soviet citizens think they have a good thing going for them.., most of them feel free. Political terror has shriveled." Free? The Russians don't know the meaning of freedom. Both under the Czars and the killers of the Krem- lin, they have always been slaves. Terror?
