In an effort to revitalize the basic truths that "Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom" and that "All that is necessary for evil men to succeed, is for good men to do nothing;," the Fair Play for Americans Committee was conceived. Without officers, directors or by-laws, tne principal purpose of the Commiteee is to remind Americans of thc basic freedoms guaran teed us under thc Constitution and Bill of Rights; and to be ever watchful of any force, regardless of purpose, which may attempt to take away or lisuit our freedoms. We, the members of the committee, are dedicated to the belief that all of us should join hands to protect our rights and freedoms fr om any internal force which might seek to destroy or limit them. The Committee's keen awareness of the importance of "Government by the People" coupled with its deep concern over the ever- increasing encroachment of thc Federal Government into the realms of States' Rights and the individaal rights of American citizens, causes it to sound tins warning: All of us should be vigilant to recognize any and all moves to transfer power from Thc States and The People to the Federal Government. Thc Committee firmly believes that any such transfer of power endangers the freedom of every Ameriran. With the above basic principles in mind, the Fair Play for Americans Committee comes to the aid of Lake Charles educator, Rex II. Smelser. The Committee wishes to make clear that its efforts on behalf of Mr. Smelst-r should not be so narrowly construed as to indicate that its purpose relates primarily to the segregation or integration of Sowlea Vocational-Technical School. Us principal concern is with the broader matter of the rights and freedoms guaran teed Mr. Smelser and all other Americans under our Constitution and our Bill of Rights. The Committee is of the opinion that the tactics employed by The Justice Department flagrantly violate the Constitutional rights of Mr. Smelser. And the Committee realizes that without its aid. Mr. Smelser will stand alone a gainst the awesome power of our present Justice Department. H is obvious that any decision rendered and any punishment meted out in this case will serve as a precedent for similar oases. The Justice Department's punitive axe may fall on any of us. Those of you who feel the hour is late, and lhat we must now stand up and fight for our long-cherished freedoms; and who would like to have more specific information on the exact violations of Hex Smelser's constitutional rights, are urged to fill in the form below and mail it to- Fair Play for Americans Committee P. 0.
