by communists to join or support front organizations He explained how these persons were enlisted by the commu nists operating both above end underground in their relentless conspiracy In todays chapter he discusses the most deceptive of the lures with which communists heve caught unwitting Amer ican fish in their net By J EDGAR HOOVER Director Federal Bureau of Investigation One of the chief strengths of the Communist Party has been its ability to appeal by trickery to many Amer icans who are sincere idealistic and wellmeaning Letus consider five of the most deceptive claims made by the Communist Party USA in its effort to lure innocent victims Lets see what communists pretend to be and what theyreally are 1 It is claimed that communists are liberals The concept that communism is a new world of liberalism is false a trap used to catch noncommunists The word liberal has a fine upright meaning and is symbolic of a great historic tradition That is why the communists appropriate the term for their own use COMMUNISM IS THE OPPOSITE of liberalism Liberalism stands for increased rights for the citizen a curb on the powers of the central government freedom of speech religion and the press Communism means fewer and fewer rights for the private citizen curtailment of freedom of speech and press and worship of God The communist state becomes allpowerful the absolute reverse of American tradition Communists do not like the genuine liberalism of Western civilization they denounce liberals blockheads Lenin attempt by every means to destroy them The communists realize that true eralism is a bitter enemy a fighter for the things that com munism opposes LANDING of J a k a rta government backed by warships have landed in Sumatra in a major move to wipe out the rebels Bukittingi and Padang were the initial principal targets New Landings on West Coast of Sumatra JAKARTA Indonesia ffi Ma rines from Java on the west coast of Sumatra Thursday in the Jakarta governments promised major bid to smash the twomonthold rebellion against President Sukarno Premier Djuanda said the in vaders met little initial resist ance Liberals do not want revolution but genuinesocial reforms That is Svhy t h e Communists detest them But if liberals can be ex ploited so much the better Like everybody else they are fuel for the communist engine of revolu tion It is claimed Communists are progressives 2 WE OF THE Communist Party are fully and completely in the camp of progress A prime tenet of Communist prop aganda is that communism is the latest word in social progress All other forms Of government especially our constitutional gov ernment according to the com munists are outmoded oldfash ipned and antique Communism is the wave of the future they like to say bringing all the gooc things that man has been dream ing about for years Religion th opium of the people must b destroyed God cast out and th oppressors liquidated Th road ahead is clear Join th Communist Partyand see prog

the interstate highway bill de signed to put an additional 800000000 into a speededup con struction program But the President said he was approving the bill fwilh serious misgivings because of certain o its provisions which I regard a grave defects Some of these provisions Eis enhower said in a statement could even create unfortunate precedents that may be difficult to disregard in the future EISENHOWER MENTIONED two principal defects As the most important he named what he termed the vio lation of the long established principle of a 5050 sharing of federal and state costs of federal aid highway programs other than the interstate system The bill a program authorized for only one year substitutes a 21 ratio for the 5050 principle 1 AP Photofax A LONELY VIGIL A pet dog lies in ing ledtd

Communist eaders of all ranks from N S Khrushchev to William Z Foster xom Lenin to the lowestranking communist agitator have p r o claimed that communism is the most highly developed form of democracy Lenin stated that the Soviet Union was a million times more democratic than the most advanced capitalist democracies of the WestWilliam Z Foster the longtime USA Communist Party leader commented The CommunistParty is a democratic movement and added In the Soviet Union there exists higher type of democ THE NAVYSAID the amphibi ous invasion began at dawn re jdrtedly at the Indian Ocean ieaeh of Tikuwltis35 miles west of the rebel mountain capital of Bukittinggi and 50 miles up the coast from the port of Padang They are the last major centers held by the Sumatrari rebels The landing of two companies of Marine commandos went ac cording to plan and was highly successful the navy said A spokesman predicted that the re bellion would be crushed within a week THREE COLUMNS of Jakarta ground forces were converging on Bukittinggi from thenorthwest east and southeast About a dozen important rebel administrative of ficers left the capital but Premier Sjadruddin and his insurgent Cab inet remained there It was uncertain whether the rebels would how risk their first major battle with the Jakarta forces after falling back before their land drives There seems to have been a determined effort to avoid shooting clashes which might prevent formulation of a political settlement later That is the states would put up for e a c h of federal money as compared with the dollar for dollar matching stand ard which has been in effect Eisenhower said I deplore the possibility that some may try to use thisdepart ure from a sound arrangement as a precedent for emulation This I would resist THE PRESIDENT said the second major defect is a pro vision for federal advances to state governments to finance nost of their onethird share of he cost of the additional pri mary secondary and urban high vay construction authorized by he legislation Among principal factors influ encing him to sign the bill Eis enhower included the hope that n the acceleration of work on this interstate system and on other federal aid highway pro grams some impetus may promptly be given to public and private efforts to increase em ployment The Presidents signature put in the law books for the first time a

to develop a better product This is a natural human trait The Communists identifying themselves with this idea have convinced many people that they are the progressives of the twentieth century The exact opposite is true The individual under communism is a mere number with two shoul ders to carry a bale of hay or a couple of feed sacks two hands to pull a wagon or drive a trac tor This is not
