State School has ended with a suggestion that the persons involved try to settle their dif ferences Threedoctors and a spokesman for a delegation of Glenwood townspeople aired their feelings Friday before the Governors Pro fessional Committee oh MentaJ Health When the session ended Robert Lappen chairman of the State Board of Control asked the school administration and the to try to reach unanimity of opinion that will restore harmony THE DOCTORS who testified were Dr Ward DeYoung a parttime member of the medical staff at the school who says he was fired because he objected to some med ical policies of Dr Frank Jacob son the school medical director Dr Dean Harman who re signed from the staff in support of DeYoung Drl Michael Elyoh superintend ent of the tuberculosis ward of the school who had conflicts with Jacobson and called him over bearing THESE THREE leveled their complaints against Dr Jacobson and Alfred Sasser the institution superintendent Sasser told the committee

doctors Lappen and Brv JOjCtomweU state mental health director came to the support of Sasser who is comparatively new in the Glenwood post HE IS YOUNG energetic and impetuous Lappen said think what he is trying to do is Probably he is moving too rapidly for Iowa It seems peculiar that some body isnt big enougti to knock heads together and faring these people into agreement The goal should be something for unfortu nate children ratherthan try to dig the graves of this doctor or that or this ward attendant or that Dr Cromwell I DONT KNOW where the trouble lies I believe the com munity has tried to get along with Sasser and he has sincerely tried to get along with the community Maybe they are congenitally in compatible W C Rathke was spokesman for the Glenwood Citizens Com mittee who supported Dr De Young Rathke said what that group ob jected to were policies which have created distrust between the town and the institution He said the citizens group does not object to a changeover at the institutions but the manner in which it has been adminis tered French General Gameliri Is Dead PARIS Maurice Gus tave Gamelin World War I hero who feJl inlo disgrace for failing to hold back

anything but music to the ears of the Oska loosa Womens Club members Truman was quoted as saying that during his campaigns he grew tired of the song and that anyway it was written by an lowan You can still get an argument started on that point Not long ago Editor W Earl Hall of the Mason City GlobeGazette was in spired by the Truman assertion to write in column that he wished someone would take

EDGAR HOOVER Director Federal Bureau of Investigation Just ns important as knowing why persons join Communist Party is an understanding of what may induct them to leave By recognisingand promoting the influ ences that cause Communists to discover the evils of Communist doctrine and practice persons in free countries can do much to defeat the Communist interna tional conspiracy Communists even the hardcore parly members potentially can be converted To the individual who assorts Once a com munist always a communist I say No Any Communist may nnvo his eyes opened to whats wrong with communism The Com munst should not be rejected as hopelessly lost The exCommunist should not be belittled or despised He can redeem himself by actively taking a stand for freedom Every patriotic citizen should do all he can to bring Communists to sco the truth The exCorn imimst is today one of our most potent weapons against commu nism i n FAST of Last Frontier Free dom Road My Glorious Brothers and other

tyfcireclcs as lhc outstanding woman member in tho i to Party circles that she was indicted tried and convicted Her doubts had thenv too She remained the fanatical Bar bara Hartlc attending meetings issuing orders making speeches Then in mid1950 something decisive happened to Barbara Hartle She was told to change her name leave Seattle and enter t h e partys Underground For the next two years she lived under assumed names in various Washington State and Oregon cit ies dcr the Smith Act in Seattle in October 1953 But she too be came disillusioned As did Louis Budcnz Bella Dodd Howard Fast and Joseph Clark she added her name to the growing 1 i st of United States Communists who have said had enough Were quitting TO UNDERSTAND better what members go through in breaking with the party lets examine the case of Barbara Hartle On March 12 1954 she into the Seattle office of1 the FBI and told her story She had been grad uated in 1929 the highest scholastichonor Phi Beta Kappa from Washington State College majoring in English She went then to Spokane to find a job and had experiences all too com mon in those worldwide depres sion days In a mood to grasp at any promise of a better world she began to read the writings of Karl Marx Deeply impressed she joined the Socialist then the Communist Party Her rise in party ranks in Spokane was rapid She was transferred to Se attle where she was given some of the highest party positions in the Washington state organiza tion Ill go to jai if I must she once declared but Ill re main a Communist ONE DAY in 1945 when Earl Brovvder was on his way out as head of the Communist move ment Barbara sar down to write an article for the Communist press In it from sheer force of habit she defended Browder But then what experience had taught her in the party asserted itself William Z Foster was now the boss no matter what She tore up the article Later back on tbe party line she wrote another article sup porting Foster But she was cbn used by this sudden party switch Out of this confusian this great surprise as she termed it came an inkling of the fact that the arly was not what it claimed to be democratic but a fraud ulent deception Yet as had happened in many such cases her confusion and doubt on that occasion were swept away in the rush of the parly members life Barbara had undergone a previous disturbance of her faith in the Party back in 1939 aflef the StalinHitler pact THE UNENDING HUSTLE and bustle of everyday Party activity ceased for her As she sat in a lonely room or stood on a dark street corner waiting for an un derground rendezvous she now had plenty of time to think for herself Suddenly all the doubts that had been drifting in and out of her mind came together Looking back later she I never realized that this disci pline and this mental and phys ical domination of the Communist Party over its members is neces sary to it in order to continue its double life of posing as one thing and being another I had never before realized that the many un solved problems I had noted while still a member were prod ucts of this double existence IT WAS ONE THING however to break intellectually with the party another to break openly She had broken with the Commu nist world of tyranny yet was held by the power that had robbed her of freedom The in decision began to tear herapart She was spiritually sick At first she kept saying to herselfandtbe party Ill be aljl right Just give me a little time Ill work this out H Her indecision ended in March 1954 What happened then Irates what an
