Those Who Would Make USA Like Russia, Godless Editor Facts: Regarding the petulant outburst of Eugene Kruszynski about your editorial on the A.C.L.U. Mr. Kruszynski is indebted to you for your generous action in publishing his opposition letter. This is in accordance witli tbe American tradition of freedom of the press. The A.C.L.U. is indebted to our Constitution for its very existence. Especially is this true when it has taken up the cause of so many traitors, appeasers and pro-Corn' munists in recent years. While Mr. Kruszynski was care ful. to state in detail the publicly announced aim of the A.C.L.U. he failed to discuss its deeds, which have repeatedly drawn fire from loyal Americans. Now as to the issue: elimination of "under God" from the pledge of allegiance. This is merely another step in the long standing struggle between those who wish to preserve the American Christian tradition and those who would destroy it in an effort to make this counto', like Russia, Godless.

Ricardo ("Ted") Braithwaite, author of the book on the new countries of Arica, "A Kind of Homecoming", published in 1961. The primary purpose of Jlr. Braithwaife's visit is to renew acquaintance with Dr. Stanley L. Combs of the University of Red lands faculty who also happens to be directing the class on "Emerging Nations". They first met in January 1962 when both were in Germany for the UNESCO Youth Institute. They met again in July of that year in Paris where Mr. Braithwaile maintains his permanent residence.
