Communism and theres going to be one held sooner than most persons imagine a principal cause of death will be found to be the amazing ignorance of human nature on the part of those in the Kremlin starting with old Nikolai Lenin himself In Communisms Bible Das Kapital by Karl Marx and in Russias interpretation of the despicable philosophy therein enunciated there has been an al most unbelievable failure to sense either the depth or the nature of thc religious instinct in man This religious instinct insep arably linked with a conscience which tellsthe individual the dif ference

a hollow ring even lo those who utter the words The first break in the Com munist dike against religion as such came about 20 years ago GlobeGazqltc pholo by Gibbs TAX DEADLINE BRINGS Curtis 817
