June 30, 1953 Editor, Daily Item: I would like to express my opinion on the dishonorable truce afrreement which the U.N. or rather the U.S. is about to sign. I say the U.S. because it our war, our troops and our money involved. The other nations are just going along for the ride. We are the people that are paying the bill and losing face at the same time. . When we were fighting up near the Yalu River, would -we have signed a truce, certainly not: but now that the Commies have us whipped we are ready to sign at any cost. This is the first time in the history of the nation that we have turned yellow at the sight of a fight. What about the 136,000 American casualties, and the hundreds of thousands of ROK casualties caused by the Korean War. Are they all in vain? . When we -entered Korea. U.N. leaders set as their goal the establishment of a united Korea and the punishment of the aggressors. We have abandoned our goal and now the rest of the world is laughing in our face. ' ' The best thing we could, do is to fight like men and drive tne aggressors from Korea, instead of sitting back like meek little mice. If I hadn't been too seriously wounded . at the battle of Hung-nam, I would still be over 'there fighting for what I think is right. f' '"Respectfully yours, ' A K-Vet Sunbury, Pa., July 2, 1953 Editor, Daily Item: It was indeed a pleasure to read your timely editorial en titled "A Wall Against GI Loans" appearing in The Daily Item Tu esday, June 30. It is unfortunate that veterans of .moderate income are being denied the opportunity of obtain ing living quarters within their means. Of course, those who write the regulations, as a rule, are in such a cash position that they do not need to consider the wants of wage earners. Again permit me to congratu late you on the editorial in such a fine newspaper as The Daily Item. Yours very truly, F. L. S. BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY Lewisburg, Pa. English Group July 4, 1953, Editor Daily Item: I have sent the following letter to President Eisenhower: Mr. President: I think President Rhee's ideas and actions are right. We can not afford to accept defeat in Ko rea. The armistice at the end of the first world war made the sec ond possible. The refusal to allow Patton to complete the conquest of Germany at the end of the second world war put the communists in a position to start the third. An armistice now would be equally disastrous. Respectfully submitted, -H. W. KOBBINS.
