lH»ald. Mwioa N c.
—Ttadlmlr b Ksflov. Counselor
Dear Three P’s:
While I am not a lawyer, it
seems to me that this country is
too soft in handling spies and
communist agent and other
criminals. From newspaper re
ports it would seem fnat many
of these people are guilty of the
crime of which they have been
accused, but in some way or
other they seem to get off. The
handling of Powers, the U 2 avia
tor, t.he C-47 and its passengers
that were forced down in East
Germany and the shooting of
many planes throughout the
world by Russians does not give
a chance to any of the indivi- 1
duals to defend themselves.
What is the reason for this?
You bring out one of the fun
damental differences in the ad
ministration and application of
the law under a democratic
form of government and the ap
plication and administration of
the law under a dictatorship. Ini
the U. S. the accused is consid
ered innocent until he is proven
guilty and he has the advantage
of counsel and the benefit of all
local as well as federal law. In
Russia and other dictator coun
tries the accused is considered
guilty and has little opportunity
to prove his innocence. In Rus
sia usually there is no jury sys
tem. particularly in cases affect
ing the government. The ac
cused is brain washed before he
is ever brought to trial, does not
have counsel and is usually tried
before a judge who is already
biased against the accused. The
prosecuting lawyers ask and de
mand answers to questions which
practically convict the accused,
without any recourse to defend
himself in his own way.
It is true that a great many
communists, who were indicted
on prima facie evidence of guilt,
have been able to get off be
cause of the leniency of our laws
as well as technical faults. Take
the case of Dr. Abel, a Russian
communist spy who was caught
red handed in Brooklyn with all
Os his paraphernalia for broad
casting to Russia on short wave
powerful radio sets. He was
convicted and sentenced to At
lanta for 20 years. However,
his lawyer almost got him off on
a minor technicality. The war
rant under which Dr. Abel’s
apartment was searched was ob
tained through the Bureau of
Immigration on the basis that
Abel was in this country under 1
a false name and with a fraudu
lent passport. The FBI men
were there and obtained the
evidence on which Abel was
convicted. Abel's attorney ap
pealed to the I.T. S. Supreme
Court that the evidence was ob
tained under false pretenses as
the search of the apartment was
not made under a search and '
seizure warrant and therefore
the evidence was obtained under
illegal procedure. He almost got j
off as the Supreme Court only
upheld the conviction on the
basis of a 5-4 vote.
Then take the prominent labor |
leader who has been tried time I
and time again but has always j'
gotten off under some technical
ity of the law. He is not even
a citizen but is still operating as
a communist. Then take the
.trial of another labor leader,
who has been tried numerous
times but never has been con
victed. Here he was caught red
handed bribing an employee of
a Congressional committee to
obtain secret information. The
jury was packed, the jury was i
furnished with newspapers
printed in favor of the defend- j
ant and character witnesses were
paid and brought in to testify as |
to the character of the defend
ant. The evidence was clear and j
outstanding, but the jury, which
was prejudiced for various rea
sons, came in with a decision of
not guilty. The judge should
have been removed from the
bench for permitting the jury to
receive the inflammatory news
papers in favor of the defend
ant and against the government.
Contrast this with the trials of
members of the Russian govern
ment and other accused indivi
duals. The trials were only
pretexts, the accused were con
victed by the single judge and
the defendants just shot. This
happened numerous times in
hungary after the uprising;
many an innocent person was
just murdered. Consider the re
cent trials-in Cuba, where in
dividual* were tried and con-
victed by the wholesale without
behefit of counsel or jury and
they were murdered- by the
Dear Three P's:
I am in the process of ob
taining a divorce. My married
life was not too happy. Re
cently I have met a very fine
man who has been divorced.
Like me, he was hurt in his
marriage experience, and is
rather shy and backward in his
approach to all women. I think j
he is a fine person and I would
like to have him become inter
ested in me.
You have been hurt in your |
marriage and as a result you I
are sympathetic toward this fine j
man you have met. It’s true
that in many eases of divorce j
which have resulted in complete |
disillusionment the man usually |
shies away from women and in ;
some cases becomes known as |
so-called “women haters.” How
ever, as has often been said, man
was not made to live alone and,
oi course, that applies to women.
Take your time, if he is the man
you want, get to know him be
yond the surface, what his in
terest might be, find his soft
spot and if he is as good as you
surmise he will succumb to your
understanding and sympathetic
attitude. Do not rush it, or else
he will shy off further away j
than he is now.

produce tears of compassion.
Real compassion, however, enters
into the sorrows of others in a
much more positive way. Let
us say here, that the churches,
through their various instru
ments and agencies, are doing
a creditable job of easing the
suffering of many in this world.
The hungry world is being fed a
little, the naked are being
clothed, the fatherless are being
sheltered, the illiterate are be
coming literate. But. in many a
local church the spirit of benev
olence is meager. Too often the
old cry can be heard among
Christians: "Let’s take care of
ourselves first and then give
the rest to missions." But even
a small congregation can become
a great church when it becomes
What, then, are the vital con
tributions that worship can. and
often does, make to the righting
of social wrongs? In the first
place. Christian worship is the
climate in whch God’s concern
for humanity is revealed. Unique
in Christian worshp is the crea
tion of a climate in which the
belever's magination is kindled
and his affections aroused in
behalf of the deprived children
of the human family.
The second contribution of
Christian worship is that it in
spires a sense of “I Can." The
joning together of many hearts
in prayer and praise, the reve
lation to their minds of urgent
unfinished Kingdom tasks need
not get the plaintive response:
"The task is too great. There is
nothing we can do." Instead.
Christian worship at its best in
cites us to affirm: "I can."
And thirdly, Christian worship
impresses on the individual that
the enterprises of social justice
are on the hearts of many per

the victories won during the
last three centuries in the realm
of social justice under the ia

something more than go through
