2d As A1 Smith says, let's look at
re the facts. Mr. Browder stands for

nism stands for. Therefore he must
look on the Russian government as
an ' the one ideal government, i\ being

dolphins, locusts, gadflies,

for love of slaughter; deliberate
wastefulness of natural resources;
wanton destruction of natural beauties;

Newspapers Vs. Spellbinders.

was bitterly partisan. We distorted
facts and editorialized in news stor^

opposition. Otherwise we'd have
been traitors to a sacred cause.
These times the average paper,
big or little, prints honest accounts
concerning both sides?their relative
chances as revealed by polls,
their waning or gaining hopes. The
political views of a columnist or a
special contributor may differ from !

What It Is All About
When from the human heart the ^

about atoms and chaos; it i> about r
