Tired of embassy attacks. Lawless mobs the courage dedication and emotional stability and love of country shown by the two astronauts Virgil j. Grissom and Jolon w. Young Are in Sharp contrast to some of the things we have been witnessing in California. The in seen astronauts Are americans the finest meaning of the word. But in Berkeley Jve have bearded and unkempt youths More in cynicism and obscenities than in ambition and loyalty flaunting the gifts of a great country. They have lost something along the path of life either in education or in their Homes. Dissent is a cherished tradition of a free society As Well As education. But dissent is not enough. It has been the contributions of people like major Grissom and a it. Cmdr. Young As Well As that of scientists scholars industrialists and inventors which built America and now Are joining in unlocking the secrets of nature and opening two challenges to Man. The angry bearded youth cries out against this but Why he has been told there Are no values to him in a society that has Given More education and More comforts to More people than any in history. The same front pages of our newspapers that Shock us with the happenings at Berkeley also bring us the news of the death of Fine Young men in uni form who Are defending the Security of the United states in far off Jungles in unfriendly air and in dangerous Waters. But these bearded Young radicals demand that the United states withdraw and leave the Field to a theism and communism and Tell the parents and widows and children of these men that they died in vain in an ignoble cause. When the bodies of our heroes Are brought Home in Flag draped coffins there Are no state funerals no heralding of them As martyrs in the cause of Freedom and no thousands pushing a to grab the microphones to Tell the world their deaths must be paid rededication. For by our own a r the values of our society seem to be shifting. While the re enlistments of army men on duty in South Viet Nam ate astonishingly High and they believe in the cause for which they Are fighting some of our senators and congressmen in Washington Tell the world that the United states had no business sending them Over there and that we should be Down with the enemy that has sworn to rid the world of our Way of life. The nation can be grateful that there Are Young men who will the challenges of space and others will Wear a uniform with Pride id without question take their turn on the firing line of Freedom.
