Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - September 5, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky surrender psychology the principal achievement of propaganda Public relations and advertising is to make a person believe that somebody else wants him to believe. A nine out of ten a shrieks a girl on television and you Are therefore supposed to believe that nine out of ten doctors prescribe a certain drug for a headache it is not True in the first place because the Way the medical profession is organized doctors specialize and therefore no such ratio has anything to with headaches. Furthermore my own doctor warned me that As a cardiac patient if i took this or a remedy of the same ingredient it would me damage. It might kill me. It is the same in politics. In order to justify a budget and to continue High taxes the government propagandists took advantage of the sputnik to scream that if we did not something drastic we would be licked All our cities would be wiped out. And our population destroyed. Therefore the a educators Quot got into a Tizzy by demanding More schools and colleges to turn out More engineers and scientists even though by such acute specialization the engineers scientists and All others would come out of colleges and universities ignorant uneducated specialists slide Rule pushers who could not think for themselves. The principal task of All learning after All. Is to train the mind to think for itself. 000 then free lancers for magazines and news afters began to sell articles on How we Are going to surrender editors bought such articles in the Hope that people like to read about the worst. Of these articles the most unbelievable and therefore the one that attracted most attention was by brigadier general Thomas r Phillips . Army retired. Tile dateline is Washington. August 5 brigadier general Phillips has had an interesting administrative career in the army is the author or editor of a number of books and is the military analyst for the a St Louis Post dispatch a tins particular article has the following headlines and sub Heads All bunched together in the a congressional record Quot in which i read it Quot question of when United states should surrender in All out nuclear attack studied for Pentagon a scientists Are proceeding on Assumption Russia has achieved or is rapidly gaining inter Continental military superiority with the article deals mainly with a Book. A strategic surrender a by Paul Kecskemety published by the Stanford University press for the i Rand corporation which is an air Force Agency. Who Kecskemeti is i cannot discover in usual works of reference the brigadier gives no biographical sketch neither does senator Symington who Calls attention to the article. A a a senator Symington said that he railed attention to the otherwise obscure article and Book for the following reason a a. The article has prompted considerable correspondence from disturbed constituents who asked whether it is a fact that the United states is in mortal danger As general Gavin stated according to an article which was published last week in life Magazine they want1 to know whether general Phillips is Correct when he says a a a the United states will be in1 mortal danger until bombers fast enough to limit the effectiveness of hostile air defences and thou Sands of intercontinental missiles Are ready to respond to the opponent. Who Lias trumped our Ace by jumping Over the phase of j intercontinental warfare represent j cd by Long Range bombers As a Means of delivery a Quot 001 i the phrase a mortal danger a is a most serious one and cannot be used lightly. I have read general j tames m Gavin a Book. Quot War and peace in the space and came away from it disturbed but j without any feeling that we Are in Quot mortal in fact my own reaction was that As Long As general Cavin could write such a Book for general circulation and state his criticisms in Freedom we j Are not in a mortal and j Miral Hyman Rickover does it better. I think he criticizes but stays on the Job As Long As he will be permitted to stay on the Job and a Many a work. There is no use minimizing the peril of having such an enemy As soviet Russia tout it is really Dan-1 porous to shriek a mortal to get a budget through Congress. There ought to be a More mature Way of getting things done. Copyright 1958. King features Syndicate inc.1 j vol. 80, no. 209 it.
