WISHt'AMI'Kn Editor, The Reporter-News There are Communists, and I hey are revolutionary, but....are the "Communist Rules for allegedly captured by the Allies in Dusseldorf, Germany in 1919, real? To many who accept them at face value, it is probably heresy to raise Ihe question. The "Rules" are doubtless the most widely circulated, mosl talked aboul, mos( quoted document in Abilene and the Big Country today. A radio station recently said It had distributed more than copies of the piece. It lias been reprinted in countless publications, including weekly newspapers, service club bulletins and a regional Rut lias anyone taken Ihe trouble lo (race Hie lo their source and confirm Iheir anlhenlicity? The Abilene Reporter- News Iried lo in .September, 1M9. When several copies of the ''Communist Rules for Revolution" were submitted lo the newspaper with requests they be published, the Reporter- News began invest igaling. Tlie research section of (lie Abilene Public Library had no Communist 'Rules Deal With Guns, Youth, Sex Without in any way Implying authenticity, but only for reader inlerest in relation to the accompanying news story, The Reporter-News herewith prinls (he alleged "Communist Rules for In Mav of 1919, at Dusseldorf. Germany, Die Allied Forces obtained H copy of some of Ihe "Communist Rules for Revolu- tion." Nearly 50 years laler, the Reds were still following them. A. Corrupt Ihe young; get them away from religion. Get them in interested in sex. Make Diem superficial; destroy Iheir ruggedness. B. Gel control of all means of publicity, thereby: 1. Get people's minds off their government by focusing attention on athletics, sexy hooks and plays and olher trivialities. 2. Divide I lie people inlo hoslile groups by constantly harping on controversial mailers of no importance. 3. Destroy Ihe people's faith in Iheir nalural leaders by holding Ihe Inner up to contempt, ridicule and disgrace. 4. Always preach true democracy, but seize irower as fast and as rulhlcssly as possible. 5. By encouraging government exlravagnncc, destroy tls credit, produce fear of inflation with rising prices' and general discontent. 6. incite unnecessary strikes in vilal Industries, encourage civil disorders and foster a lenient and soft altitude on the purl of government toward such disorders. 7. By argument, cause Ihc breakdown of Die old moral sobriety, sclf-reslraint, failh in the pledged word, ruggedness. C. Cause Die registration of all firearms on some pretext, with a view lo confiscating (ticm and leaving (no population helpless.

On Kept. 30, The Reporter- News wrote Ihe Library of Congress, enclosing a copy of the "rules" from (he fnwa Grand Lodge Bulletin, and asking if the Library could substantiate thai I hey had, indeed, been captured by Allied Forces in in 19IH, as claimed. On Oct. 8, Knbert H. Land, Chief, Reference Dcpartmenl, General Reference and Bibliography Division, the Library of Congress, replied as follows: "We have searched the catalogs, reference aids, and collections of this Library but are unable (o determine the source or In establish the aiithenlicily of Die document enclosed with your leller. "The 'Ruies for Revolution' have been and are currently being published by a variety of people, all of whom generally cite Ihe same sources of in- formation: the alleged capture of Ihe 'Rules' by Allied Forces in Dusseldorf, Germany, in May and the disclosure of the 'Rules' by Florida Slale Attorney George A. Braiitigam, while investigating Communists in Florida in the 1950's. We have been unable lo subslanli'ato the Dusseidnrf source, though a member of our slaff lias consulted Ihe Henry T. Allen (U.S. Commander in Germany) papers, and examined contemporary American, British and German newspapers without success. We suggest thai an in- depth search of archival material relating lo Ihe First World War may be Ihe only method of verifying the alleged existence of the captured document.

Roberto Marcelo Levingslon, a relatively obscure Army careerist, wns named by the military junta Saturday night as the new president of Argentina. Levingston, 50. replaced Gen. Juan Carlos Ongatiia. who was overthrown Monday by a military coup. The junta announced Hie ap- pointment al a news conference broadcast over nationwide radio and television. Now the Argentine represent- ative on Ihe Inter American De- fense Board in Washington, the new president liad flown Friday to Buenos Aires. He spent Saturday meeting wilh the commanders-ln-chief of the armed forces, who make up the three-man junta that ousted Ongania in a 12-hour bloodless coup. Although the Junta hart been expected to name a military man, the appointment of Lev- ingslon was a surprise because of his lack of prominence. Born in the central province of San Luis, he had served on a number of Argentine military delegations abroad, particularly In fhe United Slates. He was named lo I lie InlerAjnerican Dpfenfe Board In 1SSS. The junta said Die new presi- dent will officially take over June 18. -Xevlngstim, the first Argentine president with an English surname, will have to share power with the three-man junta in governing the nation of 23 million people, Ihe second largest in America. Earlier in the week, the junta announced it was drawing up a new charter that would make Ihe president and (he armed forces chieftains "co-legisla- tors." The junta is made up of Li. Gen. Alejandro Laniisse, commander of Hie army; Arim. Pedro Gnavi, head of the Navy, and Brig. Gen. Carlos Alherin Key, chief of the air force. Ongania's insistence on rue-man rule was a principal reason for his ouster from Ihe presidency after nearly four years in office by Ihe same mili- tary men who brought him to power. Will] military backing, Ongania abolished Congress and political parties and ruled by enacting decrees signed only by himself. All foreign exchange opera- tions have been prohibited since Tuesday and apparently will not resume until Levingston names an economics minister. The junta apparently feared a nm on the peso-endangering Argentina's foreign currency reserves-if exchange operations were permitted before the new president outlined his economic policies. Ongania's economic slabilizfllion program pleased foreign investors and won inter- national confidence in the peso because of ils emphasis on infla- tion controls and balancing the budget. Bui a wage freeze, a key element in" Ihe economic program, was unpopular among Argentine workers, and labor union strikes and anti-govern- ment demonstrations were frequent in recent months, esperiallq in Cordoba, the nation's automating center and its third largest city. 2 Killed In Area Crashes Three separate traffic acci- dents Saturday in the Big Country left two persons dead and four in hospitals with injuries.
