had suffered Ike Hits AntiCommie Zealots LOS ANGELES tf President Eisenhower in a letter read Fri day to the American Library Asso ciation criticized who would deny freedoms friends the opportunity ofstudying Cominu nism in its plausibili ties its falsities its weaknesses As it is an ancient truth that freedom cannot be legislated into existence so it is obvious that freedom cannot be censored into existence the President wrote And any who act as if freedoms defenses are to be found in suppression and suspicion and fear confess a doctrine that is alien to America The Presidents message was Had to the 4000 librarians attend ing thfe 72ndI annual conference of the American Library Association by its president Robert B Downs Downs director of libraries at the University of Illinois said Ei senhowers letter was in reply to a letter Downs wrote him immedi ately after the Presidents com mencement address at Dartmouth College June 14 Downs said his letter expressed appreciation of the Presidents presentation of the freedoms to which the work of li brarians is dedicated In the Dartmouth address Eisen hower said that Communism can be fought effectively only by know ing it and he cautioned against joining the book burners who would bar knowledge of Commu nism from the libraries The President appeared on that occasion to be hitting at Sen Mc Carthy who has been crit icizing the State Department for using books by Communist authors in its propaganda campaign against the Reds The State Department disclosed that allcopies of about 300 books have been banned from U S infor mation libraries overseas And Thursday the American Library Associations Council criticized by resolution what it called the State Departments confused and fear ful response Eisenhower said in the letter read to the librarians Friday A democracy smugly disdainful of new ideas would be a sick de mocracy A democracy chronically fearful of new ideas would be a dy ing democracy For all these reasons we must in these times be intelligently alert not only to the fanatic cunning of Communist also to the grave dangers in meeting fa naticism with ignorance For in order to fight totalitarian who ex ploit the ways of freedom to serve their own ends there are some zealots more wrath than adopt a strangely unintelligent course They would try to defend freedom by denying freedoms friends the opportunity of studying Communism in its en tirety its plausibilities its falsi ties it weaknesses But we know that freedom can not be served by the devices of the tyrant1 cials and foreign diplomats showed more than passing interest in Pres dcnt Eisenhowers reported will ngness to send a man high in the US government to talk truce terms with Ilhec Sources close to Rhee suggested he would not be

possibility of an al liance between South Korea and Nationalist China if a truce is signed and South Korea fights on alone Reports circulated that se cret talks might be under way to bring in five Nationalist divisions to replace U S forces in case of a separate truce Just before the conference Rhee released written replies to ques tions from the Associated Press Asked to list his minimum con ditions for accepting a truce at his time Rhee answered Simultaneous withdrawal of both the Chinese and UN forces from Korea and a mutual security pact to be signed between the US and the Republic of
