' JUNE 12, 1948 BL™mu.K (AUK.) COURIER NEWS ** PAGE THREE I I <w 1 1 vss, 1 M x»- I 1 i V^ommunism in Russia deserves to be measured over against the intolerablg tyranny and oppression of the Czars; it may even be a step in advance of that which k replaced, .But Communism within the United States is quite a different thing.
