There was a picture of Josef Stalin, big as life 'and puffing a pipe. Dr. Hughes 'explained that he and his pub- ilishers originally had used the I picture along with a brief essay i on Communism. He said the essay was intended to teach- the kids a bit about what Communism is like, so they could compare it with our form "of government--hoping to goodness they would like ours better. In the next edition of the book they're going to ''leave Joe out of it."" as Dr. Hughes put it. He has inserted instead a description of the Russian idea of democracy, and how wrong it is.
