past it Public Forum Democrats Still Cuss Hoover, But Who Promoted Russia Into Power? To the Editor: A newspaper reporter recently described the speech" of an-out-of- State, United States Senator who was plugging for the Democratic candidate for Congress from the 10th Nor,th Carolina Congressional district as "Whipping the G.O.P. with the stinging lash of his down- South oratory". This Senator, who was either short of political ammunition or else Judging his audience to be so gullible as to swallow anything political, spent a lot of his time as well as most of his "down- South orator/' in lashing out, In rabble-rousing vehemence at former President Hoover, endeavoring to nail his aged political hide to the 1952 campaign dopr, so to speak. It might be less trouble if we were to agree with the author of Ecclesiastes '. that "Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour", gnd let it go at that. However, if it is good politics for men Â·who' should know better, and who should be abqya such cheap and disgusting political "tactics, to revile an honorable old man every campaign year for something he probably wasn't responsible for, I see np reason fo soft-pedal the g l a r i n g misconceptions of the: Roosevelt and Truman regimes, which in comparison were a thousand times worse. It would, no doubt, be impossible to accurately catalogue the many conniving and deceptive acts and apparently, stupid mistakes, in regard to both national and international affairs, that have taken place since the inception of the New Deal in 1932. For instance, the recognition of an outlawed and Communistic Russia by the Roosevelt Administration was the greatest tragedy that ever befell the American people. This w;as followed up by a "iend-lease" outright gift of sev- eral billion dollars, as well as ships, planes, tanks, guns and butter. After the close of World War 2, she (Russia) was given several other billions for rehabilitation purposes and she was also allowed by the Allies to rob Germany of all her industrial machinery, wliich was later replaced by American dollars. Later by the "hoss-swapping" tactics indulged in by our leaders at both Yalta and Potsdam, Russia was given carte blanche control of most of Middle Europe, Manchuria, China and half of Korea, without a struggle. Thus the United States, through its leaders, has been placed in role of a Frankenstein, who sooner or later will be destroyed by own handiwork to wit a re-resurrected Russia. , Russia's attitude toxvard us is likened to the man xvho through compassion, warmed the frozen viper in his bosom only to die later from its bite. Will xve, in the next two years, put a bunch of scheming politicians back in power that have only allowed our government to become infested with Communists who have, no doubt, sold Russia our every military secret, and xyho have crucified every American, Democrat'or Republican, that dared to make any attempt to weed out Communism? It now looks as if we will. J. L. WALKER St. Pauls To Address Demos LINCOLNTON, N.C. Lfl -- Sen. Olin D. Johnston (D-SC) will address a Democratic rally here 30.
