The communists and their satellites are turning the clock of history back, and establishing a new serfdom which is basically no different than that of the middle ages. In Finland, which has come squarely within the communist orbit, the government is now engaged in expropriating land, paying only a ridiculous fraction of its value to its owners. The goal is the old one of liquidation of the larger landholders. In the process all farmers will become impoverished. Hungary has now become ,to all intents and purposes, a part of the Soviet Union. A government which was approved in a supervised, secret election has been driven out at gun point, and the commossars are squarely in the saddle. The secret police can be trusted to take care of all dissidents—with the hope, the pistol ,and the concentration camp. This chronicle of despair could be almost indefinitely extended. The patter not' oppression is always the same. First, representative government — which simply means government chosen by the people—is destroyd. Secondly, free economic enterprise is banished, and the state seizes or controls all industry, commerce.' and agriculture. Thirdly, the free press and free" speech are outlawed, and a government bureau of propaganda tells everyone what they must think, say and believe. Finally, examples arc made of dissenters so that all the people will know what is in store for them if they resist regimentation. _ The great lesson to be learned is that the destruction of liberty is usually accomplished on a piecemeal basis. When one liberty is lost, liie others inevitably follow. A free people can maintain that freedom only if every right and liberty is rigorously defended—free speech, the free press ,free economic enterprise, democratic government. Those who temporize with tiie forces of oppression are lost without knowing it—and the only road open to them leads to slavery. • In Hollywood By ERSKINE JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent (Johnson on Kl'DN Monday Thru Friday, 2 P. M.) HOLLYWOOD — Remember all •those beautiful cover girls brought to Hollywood back in 1943 for the 'film, "Cover Girl"? There were 15 of them, and all dreamed of movie stardom. Today only one, Karen X. Gaylord, a former Minneapolis girl, is •still in pictures. All the rest have married or returned to modeling in New York. Karen, who was a Goldwyn girl for almost three years, is playing hei first dramatic part with Pran- chot Tone in Columbia's private eye mystery story, "I Love Trouble." Karen—"X," she says, "is for expensive" — met Gary Grant in a Mexico City night club last winter. and they still have frequent dates to go dancing. "He likes to jitterbug," she said. "But he docs a lot of extra steps nobody ever heard of." Whcri ths 15 cover girls landed in Hollywood, Studio Boss Harry Cohu rented a big house in Beverly Hills, hired a chaperon, and made the girls check with him before dating any of the Hollywood wolves. "We took it for six weeks," Karen mused, "and then eight of us got mad and moved out. We never went back." NO TIME OUT Republic studio no longer is the "quickie" movie plant where they once filmed entire pictures in from isix 'to eight clays. But they still don't waste any time on the sets. Walter Brennan, working them in "Driftwood," came home one night and complained to his wife that the prop eye glasses he was wearing for his role gave him a headache. "Well," said Mrs. B., "why don't •you take 'em off between scenes." Replied Walter: "They don't give me time." One of the KKO publicity boys asked Philip Dorn his ultimate ambitions. His jocose reply: "I should like to arrive at a position in Ulollywood where when I have a cohl it will bo referred to as 'acute laryngitis.'" A malt shop for collegians at the University of Illinois is featuring a sundae called "Dick Haymes Special." Tho menu says it's "two parts nectar, one part honey, served in a dream boat." The astonished proprietor says it happened while he was on vacation. HOSH OPBV VETERAN Johnny Mack Brown's horse, Rebel, just celebrated his tenth birthday as a star—a longevity record among active thespinanic animals. Hollywood cafe comment, as overheard by Mike Markha.m: "I can see why her face is her fortune. She must have a thousand dollars in small bills just in the bags under her eyes." , Dane Clark "knocked out" ex- middleweight champ Freddie Steele, veteran of 12 years in the ring,.for a scene in "Whiplash," just as the script demanded, "And to think," cracked Sfceele as he bounded back to his feet, "that I rehearsed 12 years—for this." Warner Brothers have discovered fly fc. 0. A Baccalaureate Sermon, jWith a Bad Influence on 'The Community ' I recently attended a bscea- .Jaureate sermon givpn for the grntl- Viates of the Santa Ana Junior j College. The sermon \vas rteliver- jsd by 'Rev. John Asliloy, Pastor i of the First Methodist Church. '. An acquaintance of mine who jdevotes a great deal of his lime (in trying to promote good human (relations In the community re:marked to me that, this sermon .had n bad influence on the com- jmunity. I think the sermon did (have a bad influence on the com- niunity because it had organized 'Christianity bark of it thus many people thought it represented Christian precepts. Dr. Ashley was right in warning the American peopl^pf the dangers they are facirc; He stated that some 20 civilizations had become extinct. He was also right in his contention that a life not lived in harmony with spiritual principles would not. be successful. He was correct in pointing out thai Jesus refused the opportunities offerer! him if he would take short cuts. But the reverend doesn't seem : lo recognize what short cuts are. At least he did not in Ihis .sermon. He repealed what he undoubledly hn,s heard said by some labor leader I hat Industrial disputes should be .solved around the conference table. This is a nice sophism that on lhf> surface sounds Christian and American. But the c-onfer- cnce table that attempts'to seltln industrial disnuips is licked before they Ktart. "They are not really conference tables at all. In these conferences the labor group contends that il is the only one the employer has a right to bargain with, while it, on 'he ! oLjier hand, has a right to bargain with any employer. The laKir group has sot. up a group of untouchables—HIP consumers who arc •not prrmitled to enter 1he conference. The consumers have no right. 'io suggest that they are willing ito do the job for less than the •labor group is demanding. The whole purpose of a labor conference is not. to help establish true values, but to help establish a monopoly artificial value at the expense of the consumer and other workers. There is nothing Christian or American aboul it because it does not recognize the inherent rights or dignity of all men. And how can there he any successful conference on labor prol)-. lem:; when the members of one? group insist that they must have more for their labor than others are willing and able to do the 1 same job for. That is all the conference is about—how muc'.i more HIP emnlovp.: hr.s to nay in wastes that Joyce Reynolds and Bob Hutton are a good boy-office team. They're working in their third costarring film, "Love at First Sight" —Maria Montez will join her beloved Jean Pierre Aumont in Paris in July. HUGE OCEAN The Pacific ocean is so large that both its eastern and western limits cannot be shown on a single hemi- sperical map. There were two percent fewer cows on U. S. farms in 1947 than in 1946, but the 1947 cows supplied three percent more milk. * THOUGHTS Kor Iliis; IN tin- message that, yo lif-'Ui'il from Lliu beginning, that \vo. .should love unu another.—I John y 111. » * * Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time; effaces nil memory of a beginning, all fear of an end. —Madame De Stael, DIVISION ....:; byUpionClose With Russian-American relations 'swiftly deteriorating, it is unfortunate that a great many community, 'educational and church leaders do not yet have a clear understanding of the two clashing ideologies, in .their practical aspects. The work of propagandists over a long period of time has been so patient, so subtle that today many •Christian denominations are bitterly divided, fundamentalists accusing modernists of Christian Marxism. siding against The job has been so effective that .groups of students on every college campus are branding as "fascists" (those courageous anti-communists who since the beginning of the New Deal have fought to preserve our traditional political, economic and social order. I am personally acquainted with a number of the so- called fascists, and it is my belief that they would oppose fascism as vigorously as they oppose the threat of communism. What the students do not appear to understand is that the word "faspism" lias been warped completely out of its true meaning and is used as a weapon to defame and discredit all anti-Communists who become a serious threat to the march of communist world imperialism, of character defama- facts and logic not win—ihas greatly confused the political picture and for years has hindered the ri.se of leaders who insist on governmental ac.

Jose- cause of the Communists none the less. Some of our greatest publishers nre branded as fascists, their influence inmpaired, simply because they have had the courage to expose the {activities of those genuine fascists —and of the Red variety— who would tjestroy the way of life which George Washing-ion and Thomas Jefcrson fought . to establish. The word "nationalism" has come into disrepute among the innocents who have accepted the Internationalist's definition of it, which is approximately "nazism." Its opposite, "internationalism," has been glorified as to tend to discredit those among us who insist on loyalty to one and only one flag — who want no world imperialist dictatorship, whether of the variety championed by Joe Stalin or that demanded by Harold Stassen. Principal among the spreading defamation and disruptive propaganda are the Friends of Democracy (who $15,000 to destroy Col. Charles Lindbergh as a public figure;, the Anti- Defamation League B'rith, The American Veterans Com- phus wrote a huge volume about it and in recent times a great historian named Gibbon in his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire told something of this struggle. The communists of the French Revolution and later of the Karl Marx groups simply took over the job of destroying ' the dominant religion, which was Christianity. A racial issue or a technicality of religious doctrine which divides' the church, pitting one group against an. other, undermines the influence of the church and therefore delights the Marxists. It was thus long before the world modernist was invented.

Rev. Ashley cannot ciie a single, solilftry case where Jesus ever advocated initiating force to malic people do good or where Jejus ever advocated short.cuts to bring about desired ends such as education. Compulsory education is nothing but a short, cut. It is adopting coercion and force by way of the state rather than persuasion to make people be charitab.'e. Jesus turned his back on s.'-.o.'l cuts. Yet Rev. Ashley evidently •iays no attention to the example ^f'.Tcsus. K he wanls to preach .'esus Christ, why does be not. advocate living by I he rules and examples set by Jesus?
