Therefore it is also my leader." These words spoken by B.J. Vorster, prime minister of South Africa, and echoed recently by I.D. Smith, prime minister of Rhodesia, have apparently been accepted without question by the general public. By size and influence the U.S. is un- doubtedly the leader of the Western world. But where is its leadership taking the Western world and how reliable is it as an ally of other Western countries? This question is also being asked by Americans who are unhappy over their country's weakness in the face of com- munist aggression The detente policy of "peaceful co- existence" with the U.S.S.R. is seen as all concessions by the U.S.A. and all gains by the Soviet Union. It is clear that the U.S.S.R. does not consider itself bound to observe the same ground rules that inhibit the actions of the U.S. There is no deceit in such an attitude. The U.S.S.R. has always proclaimed world conquest for communism as its undevia- ting aim. To the achievement of this tar- get all its efforts and resources, of men and materials, are directed. The U.S.S.R. is thus the only country in the world that knows exactly what it intends to do and how it will do it. By contrast, all the other major powers, esPecially the U.S.A. and Britain, while paying lip-service to anti-communism, have in fact made their accommodation with communism and no longer oppose it. Castro Plottin EXCLUSIVE TO SPOTLIGHT By Mike Blair ROSEAU, Dominica?Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro, buoyed by his recent success in Angola, is now cast- ing a covetous eye closer to home? towards the nearby Caribbean island country of Dominica, one of the sev- eral small islands of the Lesser An- tilles. According to sources in the Dominica capital of Ronseau, the Cuban Red dic- tator has several specific aims: ? Dominica is located near the exact center of the gateway to the Eastern Caribbean, the passageway through which most vessels must travel to and from the vital Panama Canal. ? The small island nation, with a popu- lation of only about 70,000, lends itself well to an advanced Cuban or Soviet submarine base in the Eastern Caribbean. ? The island is located near the vital sea lanes to and from the oil-rich Ven- ezuelan coast. Cuba has depended heavily upon an oil supply from far off Soviet or Chinese bases. Dominican off-shore .oil reserves are just beginning to be ex- plored. Late last year a delegation of Cuban economic "experts" toured the island. As a result, various "Cuban-Dominican Friendship Clubs" began to spring up throughout the country. In January official ties with Castro's Cuba were com- menced when the Cubans ,offered the re- source-rich but development-poor Domin- icans health, agricultural and various forms of economic assistance. The U.S. in particular, by its ac- quiescence in the detente policy, by its vast technological and financial aid to the U.S.S.R., and especially by recent SALT agreements?limiting American defense spending in the vain hope that the U.S.S.R. will reciprocate?has done more to build up Soviet military strength in the 31 years since World War II than the U.S.S.R. could have achieved by its own efforts in a century. The U.S. has allowed itself to be dis- armed by its own government to a position of second place to the U.S.S.R. Even if rearmament were to be immediately resumed on a 24-hour basis, there is no hope that the U.S. could ever catch up. It is probably true that the technical _quality of U.S. nuclear missiles and wea- pons is higher than that of the U.S.S.R., In view of the fact that the island nation has been more or less ignored by U.S. foreign interests, Dominican Premier Patrick John is reportedly of the opinion Dr? Ian but the sheer preponderance of weight and numbers of the latter's weaponry is likely to prevail in a first-strike war (in- deed it is unlikely that there will ever be an opportunity for any retaliatory second strike). The U.S. has staked its future in inter- nationalism through multi-lateral trade agreements, international cartels and con- glomerates, and by international financial banking through the International Mone- tary Fund, which it controls to all extent and purposes. The government has rendered America highly vulnerable to communist blackmail by arming and financing its enemy; by relieving the enemy of the necessity of feeding itself, by dumping vast quantities of grain on the U.S.S.R., thereby permit- ting millions of workers to be released from agriculture to work in munitions Takeover of Ti that Marxism will be the best ideological course for the nation's future. Until 1961, Dominica had been a British colony for more than 200 years. Since Sowiet Dictator Leonid Brezhnev (left) and Fidel Castro UPI PHOTO 1961, the island has been internally in- dependent, within the British Common- wealth, with the British maintaining the island's foreign affairs and defense. How- ever, with Britain tied down with prob- lems in Ireland and Wales, the future of Dominica is far from uppeiniost in the minds of British officials. The island is scheduled to gain com- plete independence from Britain in November. , When this happens, Dominica will be responsible for its own military security. Currently, the little nation's armed forces consists of about 25 armed police officers, a constabulary-type of organization, and about a dozen customs officials. There is no army, no navy and no air force. Dominica's poor economy makes any plans for future military forces little inbre than a dream. Sources on the island indicate that Cas- tro will probably make his move after independence in November, when the island's defense leaves British jurisdic- tion. The island would lend itself well to guerrilla-type warfare. Much of the island is mountainous with dense rain forests, not too unlike what Castro was familiar ? with during his early days of battle against the Batista regime in Cuba. It would be totally impossible for Dominica's police force to effectively combat mountain-based guerrilla units on the island. In addition, the island's miles of secluded beaches lend them- selves to seaborne landings. Dominica EXCLUSIVE TO SPOTLIGHT By Peggy Poor MIAMI?Informed Cuban exiles here are cyn- ically betting that timing of the saccharin ban with overtures for "normalization" of relations with Castro's Communist dictatorship are far from ac- cidental. On the contrary, it's a clear case of that new bureaucratic "in" term: linkage. The "normalization" whoopla is for trade, the exiles argue. But all Cuba has to trade, besides a little nickel and a little copper, is sugar. And the U.S. does not need sugar. In fact, sugar producers in this country are asking for protection against any imports. But does that picture change when saccharin is banned? And how will banning of saccharin affect the dol- lars and cents aspect of the problem, the exiles ask. The price of sugar iskway down on the world market. By the normal dynamics of supply and de- mand, a ban on sugar substitutes might be ex- pected to boost it. Cuba is so broke, the exiles point out, that back orders are overflowing dockside warehouses in Japan, for example, because Castro's credit has run out. U.S. taxpayers will have to put up the money for any deal, as the taxpayers subsidize the wheat deals with the Soviets. But if the sugar price is inflated by a saccharin ban, the picture on paper looks less painful. Besides that, the exiles contend, Cuba does not eet De need to sell sugar to the United States. She already has markets. Russia already takes the bulk at an inflated paper price in exchange for goods she supplies in a deal to Russia's overall advantage. Cuba has had no surplus with the remainder, although the world price is too depressed now to make the trade very profitable. Knowledgeable exiles speculate that the present rush to resume trade with the Caribbean tyrant is probably traceable to pressure from whatever banking institutions are holding the paper on Cu- ba's staggering indebtedness. When relations are "normalized," the U.S. taxpayer will probably underwrite such risks, as has been the practice elsewhere in undeveloped nations or those prone to confiscations. factories; by making America 40 per cent dependent on foreign oil which the So- viets' growing control of all the oceans and seas of the world can interrupt at any mo- ment; and by permitting dangerous left- wing ideologies to grow unchecked in America to the serious detriment of na- tional morale. After the Vietnam war it is seriously doubted if American troops will ever again engage in a foreign war; indeed it is to be wondered if they will even fight for America. The United States' reliability as an ally of the West is nil. Four times, at least, in recent history has the United States let itself and/or its allies down rather than risk confrontation with the U.S.S.R.: ? In 1963 at the Bay of Pigs, the Ken- nedy administration abandoned the anti- Castro Cubans to their fate and let Cuba 11 fall into communist hands, thereby pro- viding a springboard for communist attacks on North America. ? In the Korean War (1950-1953) the military victory of Gen. Douglas Mac- Arthur was sabotaged by U.S. politicians and North Korea was handed over to the communists. ? In Vietnam the "no-win" policy of the U.S. and the intervention of the Soviet agent, Dr. Henry Kissinger, resulted in not only the passage of all Vietnam into communist hands, but destroyed the mili- tary potential, morale and credibility of the U.S. Army. ? In Angola, in 1975, the U.S., having first nodded assent to South African inter- vention in South Angola (in defense of the Kunene hydroelectric scheme), not only withdrew its support but threatened sanctions against South Africa if the Island does not have a single coastal patrol vessel. If Castro decides to go the guerrilla warfare route in Dominica, which might not be necessary due to the left-leaning government of Premier John, there are two groups with which he can work. Dominica is predominantly black. Of the 70,000 inhabitants, only between 75 and 100 are white and about 2,000 are native Carib Indians. Among the black population are about 150 to 200 "Dreads," or black power terrorists. Both the "Dreads" and the Caribs offer the Cubans possible allies on the island. Prior to Premier John coming to power two years ago, the Island was governed by Premier Edward Leblanc. Both John and Leblanc are members of the island's Labor Party. The only other party is the Freedom Party, which is outnunaberd by about two-to-one. Leblanc fell from power during a crisis with the "Dreads." He was accused of being too soft on the terrorists, who were responsible for milt.- dering at least one of the island's whites ? and burning down several of their homes. When the Leblanc government toppled, John immediately declared "open sea- son" on the terrorists, who could then be shot on sight. Since then they have gone underground. It is significant that when latter persisted in its actions, thus allowing Angola to become a Marxist dictatorship and imperilling the safety of all southern Africa. It is interesting, if idle, to speculate what would have happened if South Africa had defied the U.S. Government and chased the Cubans out of Angola. Accord- ing to South African Defense Force sources, South Africa had 2,000 men in the field and was already walking through Angola like a hot knife through butter; there were another 200,000 in reserve. The United States would have had to either back down or implement its threat by clamping an oil embargo on South Africa; thereby declaring itself on the side of Soviet aggression and opposed to its so-called Western Allies. Other examples, too numerous to cata- logue, include the behavior of the U.S. the Cuban delegation visited Dominica late last year, they conferred primarily with former Premier Leblanc. The Caribs have an intense dislike of the blacks of the island and have reported- ly, on a number of occasions, tried to ob- tain guns for a revolt. The Caribs are more or less confined to a reserve on the island. However, they are upset with the black majority intruding upon their land. Although the northern part of the is- land would well lend itself to a submarine base, the Dominicans lack a good deep- water port, which has held the island's economic development in check. In ad- dition, the nation has but one small air- port. The mountainous terrain limits the con- struction of a larger field without the ex- penditure of vast sums which the Domin- icans lack. Presently there are two flights in and two flights out daily from the tiny field, all by small, two-engined props. Due to wind currents and the mountains the landings are often cancelled at the last moment. Comically, visitors to the islands can usually determine if the planes are going to land by watching a small one- truck fire station at the end of the run- way. If the crew suddenly dons its gear and jumps aboard the antiquated truck, the plane above is about to land. 0 9 minim Reportedly, one of the "Dreads" attended the Tenth World Congress of the Communist Fourth International as one of the two Antilles' delegates. They voted in favor of furthering Com- munist expansion in Latin America through the use of terrorism and guerrilla warfare. The Cuban interest in Dominica has met with considerable criticism among both the people and the press of the is- land. However, the absence of an Ameri- can mission, or even interest, in the tiny nation leaves a gaping hole in U.S. foreign policy in Latin America. U.S. leaders are forgetting the vital role that the islands of the Eastern Carib- bean played during World War II. They were well-guarded then by the Americans and British who knew only too well what a German intrusion into the area would mean to the trade lanes to and from Pan- ama. At the peak of the Cuban action in An- gola, Dominican Premier Patrick John's friend to the nearby southeast, then Prime Minister Errol Walton Barrow of the island nation of Barbados, was up to his eyebrows in aiding the Cuban effort. Barrow allowed Cuban aircraft to use the Barbados' airfields to refuel enroute to and from Angola. at Suez in 1956; and indeed the conquest of Africa by the Soviets can largely be laid at the door of successive U.S. govern- ments since Potsdam, Yalta, etc., when the destruction of the British Empire was planned by Roosevelt and Stalin?the British Empire and its system of imperial preference tariffs being considered highly disadvantageous to American trade. The destruction of British influence in East Africa led to the establishment of another communist springboard, Zanzi- bar. What sort of anti-communism is it, as practiced by the U.S. and Britain, which pours millions of dollars into An- gola and Mozambique?both marxist dictatorships?while applying every form of pressure short of direct armed attack on Rhodesia and South Africa, both pros- perous, well-conducted and reliably anti-communist states? As the "South African Observer" (Jan. 1977) said: "In the Frelimo communist takeover of Mozambique, America did not turn a hair and went on to vote aid for the re- gime. In Angola the U.S. Congress re- fused to allow the Ford administration to raise a finger on behalf of the West, of which America is supposed to be the leader. "This failure to act in Angola assured a direct Russian entry into the world's most emotionally charged racial and political issue. "Thus with America's determination now to enforce black majority rule on Rhodesia, the stage is being set there to replay Angola, where Moscow's all-out diplomacy and military support (especially troops from Cuba) carried the day for the communist forces against the Western- backed non-communist factions. "That southern Africa's extensive raw materials and control of the sea lanes around the Cape of Good Hope happen to be essential for the West's security has still to make any seeming impression on Washington. "This is the same United States which (South Africa's) prime minister, Mr. Vorster, recently declared 'is the leader of the Western world. Therefore it is also my leader.' " The recent pronouncements of the new U.S. ambassador to the UN, Andrew Young, his background in civil rights. movements and association with militant black organizations, do nothing to re- assure Rhodesia and South Africa that the United States is on their side in their battle, not f6r white supremacy, but for sheer survival.

SPOTLIGHT, April 18, 1977 ? ? overnor RICHMOND, Va.?Governor Mills Godwin vetoed a bill that would have made January 1 "Martin Luther King, Day" in Virginia after being advised of the effects of the legislation by Liberty Lobby and The SPOTLIGHT. The bill, vetoed April 2, had been introduced by a black state senator, Doug- las Wilder. The day preceeding Godwin's veto, his office told The SPOTLIGHT that he had received many calls, telegrams and letters asking him to veto the bill. The bill was given very little publicity. In fact, so little known was the legisla- tion that most Virginians still know nothing of it. s Godwin vetoes "King Day Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2010/06/11: CIA-RDP90-00845R000201140004-6 Vetoes King Da Richmond sources said there was considerable thought given to replacing Washington's birthday with "Martin Luther King day." Fearing adverse public reaction, it was dropped. Even though rumors to this effect were ram- pant, no legislators took public credit for suggesting it. Martin Luther King Jr., whose speeches lit the torch of anarchy and de- struction in many large cities throughout the U.S. during the 1960s,was called the "most notorious liar in the country by the late FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover. Rep. John Ashbrook (R-Ohio) in the October 4, 1967 "Congressional Record" said King "has done more for the Com- munist Party than any other person of this decade." Ashbrook said that King openly identified himself with "Communists and radicals," engaged in "criminal activity, appearing at the most way-out meetings in the nation," and advocated "racism" and "revolution." January 15, King's birthday, is of- ficially recognized in a Virginia resolution King had a long history of advocating "non-violence" while inciting massive riots and civil disobedience. According to columnist Paul Scott, in 1967, King's organization studied the "Buddhist use of street gangs in Saigon demonstrations," and contacted "street gangs (in Chicago)" to recruit as mem- bers in his Southern Christian Leadership Conference. King's famous Selma (Ala.) march in 1965 was blasted by Rep. William L. Dickinson in a speech to the House. He said, "Drunkeness and sex orgies were the order of the day in Selma, on the road to Montgomery and in Montgomery. The participants in the march consisted of Negroes, do-gooders, Communists and human flotsam such as adventurers, beatniks and prostitutes . . "The Communist Party, with a powerful assist by the 'National Council of Church- es,' gave those groups cohesiveness, money and direction?and they were promised all the sex they would want from opposite members of either race . . . Free love among this group was not only con- doned, it was encouraged. They were told that only by the ultimate sex act with one of another color can they demonstrate they have no prejudice." The story was the same all over the country?usually accompanied by mass destruction of property, extensive bodily injuries and some deaths. Commented columnist Morrie Ryskind, "It's a sad fact, but wherever Martin Luther King goes, violence seems to follow." King also surrounded himself with many well known Communists. Karl Prussion, a former counterspy for the Fed- eral Bureau of Investigation (FBI), stated in a sworn affidavit that "Martin HONOLULU, Hawaii?Using the "Pearl of the Pacific" as their gate- way, uncounted thousands of Filipinos and other Asiatics are flooding the U.S. and draining the Social Security Trust Fund of millions of dollars. When the "immigrants" arrive here, they are given a Social Security Green Card inviting them to apply for "Supplemental Old Age Benefits" if they become destitute. A SPOTLIGHT source in southern California reported a typical case as follows: "It's only one of the thou- sands like it, costing the U.S. tax- payers millions of dollars a month as payment to those (foreigners) who have never earned a dime in the U.S. or paid one cent of taxes into the (Social Security) fund." A Mrs. Juan Fernandos (a fictitious name) petitioned for immigrant visas for her mother and father to come to the U.S. as "babysitters" for her four children. The mother was allowed entry and by the second month she was in the U.S., she was drawing $200 a month from Social Security. Two months after, that was raised to $220 a month. The father has not completed arrangements to come to the U.S. "Mrs. Fernandos mother brought another woman to our house for a visit. She was bragging about how she was drawing more money from the U.S. than she could ever get in the Philippines. The other lady, who is also Filipino, said she would call her daughter who is a U.S. citizen, and get on the same pension." Prohibits Use Silver Puri ler That Tops Chlorine THE LATE MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. Luther King has either been a member of, or wittingly has accepted support from, over 60 Communist fronts, individuals, and/or organizations, which give aid or espouse Communist causes." Nonetheless, liberal legislators main- tain that such proof is only a "smear" tactic to discredit King. Another undercover operative of the FBI, Mrs. Julia Brown, spent more than nine years as a member of the Communist Party in Cleveland. A black, Mrs. Brown called King "one of the worst enemies my people ever had. "Communist leaders . . . also told us to promote Martin Luther King, to unite Negroes and whites behind him, and to turn him into some sort of national hero. We were to look to King as the leader in this struggle, the Communists said, rIbecause he was on our side! "I knew they were right," said Mrs. Brown, "because while I was in the Com- munist Party I learned that Martin Luther King attended a Communist training school (Highlander Folk School, Terme- see). I learned that several of his aides and assistants were Communists and that ceived funds from Communists and that he was taking directions from Com- munists." But the state senator who introduced the legislation to immortalize King, Sen. Wilder, discounts all of that. "I don't know that he (King) was ever a communist, or that he was ever associ- ated with communists," Wilder said. V Roots (Continued from page 9) richer and older civilizations of South Europe and the Near East. First and foremost, the Hellenic Aryans brought a new humanizing influence to bear on the fossilized cultures of the Mediterranean peoples. We find this in religion and in the arts. Pelasgian and Cretan gods feasted on human sacrifices. Even in the days of the Punic Wars the otherwise gifted Carthaginians had no higher conception of religion than burning infants to their terrible god. Zeus, in contrast, exhibits revulsion and divine anger against Tantalus and Lycaon when these kings saggrifice children in his name. The prevailing Mdliterranean religion was devoted to worshipping half-human monsters and all manner of zoological freaks. In Egypt even beetles were sacred. The legendary Greek heroes refused to worship non-human gods and the myths are full of their exploits against Gorgons, Hydrae, Pythons, Centaurs and miscellaneous nightmares. Aryan art and science were cultivated with real- ism and reason as the guiding principles. The Hell- enes were the first to proportion beauty and make it the standard of their art. The formalism of Egypt cannot compare to the living grace of Greek sculpture and design. Greek science and philosophy concerned itself with the entire domain of Nature. Its searching curiosity left nothing unprobed. The mighty science of Egypt and Babylon was chiefly engineering, the utilitarian art of building irrigation works and surveying fields. It never developed into a speculative disci- pline as did Greek science. ? The Hellenes were not long burdened with an- cient superstitions and traditions. When the su- pernatural stood in the way of progress, they cut Scare Stunts Aim or Ta Deadline through it without pause or regret. Hippocrates became the father of medicine by separating reli- gion from therapeutics. He substituted drugs and sanitation for demons and prayers. Polybius was the father of modern history. He made it a cause- and-effect phenomenon instead of tales of super- natural interferences in the affairs of men. Con- trast the Hebrews who considered every temporal event an act 'of god. Another Aryan invention was constitutional government. This we owe to Solon. Before this time most of the civilized world groaned under the burden of tyrannical priest- kings. With Athenian democracy as the example, mankind began to turn away from divine kingships and set the course for the developments modern Europe ultimately fulfilled. The realism and reason which rules European civilization today are the fruits of the seeds the ancient Hellenic Aryans sowed in the fertile soil of their Mediterranean empire. That is our debt. That is our glory. IT LOS ANGELES? In a last-minute propaganda campaign to frighten potential tax strikers, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) moved against the spreading tax strike movement by having Ardie McBrearty, chairman of the United States Taxpayers Union (USTU), indicted on April 6. McBrearty is one of the best-known leaders of the tax strike movement, and USTU is the leading organized force be- hind the movement. McBrearty was indicted by the grand jury for the central district of Los Angeles on one count of failure to file an income form. But he was indicted for failure to file in 1973, the one year since 1970 that he did file. In 1973, McBrearty filed a so-call- ed "Fifth Amendment Return." He in- cluded with the form a two-and-a-half-inch file specifying his objections to each of the questions on the 1040. McBrearty's indictment should be no surprise to SPOTLIGHT readers. At the Phoenix, Ariz., "Constitutional Conven- tion" March 19, (The SPOTLIGHT, April 4), tax strike leader David Martin predicted indictments. Martin said he'd been told by a friendly IRS supervisor to expect indictments of 5000 tax strikers. The indictments would all be bluffs, Martin said, he was told, "and prosecution will not be sought. The idea is to intimidate the people, as the press will give great publicity to the indict- ments. ' ' The IRS did not inform McBrearty of his indictment, notifying a local newspaper first, which then called McBrearty. In an exclusive SPOTLIGHT interview, McBrearty said April 6 that he'd contacted the U.S. attorney's office here on three separate occasions requesting the oppor- tunity to appear on his own behalf if the U.S. attorney went to the grand jury for an indictment. He added that he'd contacted the fore- men of the various grand juries in his area, but apparently they didn't feel a citizen bad the right to defend himself in such a circumstance, so he was not called to testify on his own behalf?a clear violation of due process of law guaranteed by the Constitution. "I'm very pleased (with the one-count failure-to-file indictment) because they were threatening me with (a) conspiracy (indictment)," McBrearty said. "This gives me the opportunity to prove the un- equal application of the income tax law. "This indictment is obviously just a 'PR' (public relations; propaganda) operation of the IRS designed to frighten timid taxpayers and keep them in line," McBrearty concluded. "The tax strike is growing so rapidly that the IRS needs the publicity about this indictment before April 15. However, I expect they will lose interest in the prosecution later this year." Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2010/06/11: CIA-RDP90-00845R000201140004-6 EXCLUSIVE TO SPOTLIGHT WASHINGTON?The Environ- mental Protection Agency (EPA) has for the past two years prohibited Americans from having the benefits of silver-purified water?despite tests that show it is superior to chlorine. The EPA has prohibited the installation of new silver purification systems for swimming pools and forbids suppliers from providing makeup or replacement materials for existing systems. American Water Purification, Inc., of San Francisco, has kept many swim- ming pools crystal clear and free from bac- teria by using a combination of activated carbon containing silver and silver screens which are made anodic by the passage of the circulating water between permanent magnets separated by silver wire elec- trodes connected to the screens. Efforts are being made to correct the EPA action. The EPA uses a 1964 "stan- dard test method" which says that any water purification system must meet certain requirements for killing bacteria :in' distilled water. This test, however, is irrelevant to actual swimming pool water which contains a host of organic and in- organic material. Scores of independent tests by many methods in six countries have shown that silver promptly kills bacteria in water purity over long periods of time. For swimming pools, silver in filters keeps water crystal clear as well as clean, without the usual disinfectants that sting and bleach. It adds to the joy of swimming. The most dramatic purification tests occurred Nov. 1976 in a 20,000-gallon swimming pool in Nebraska. There was no disinfectant of any kind in the water. Fifty gallons of municipal sew age plant effluent were put into the pool. That produced a dangerous concentration of 7,000 E. coli cells per 100 milliliters (half cup) of water. Ardie McBrearty receives Bicentennial Liberty Award at Liberty Lobby's Bicen- tennial Celebration, July 4, 1976 SPOTLIGHT, April 18, 1977 41 RICHARD L. DAVIES Contents of the pool then were pumped through a tank containing alternating anodic and cathodic silver electrodes for disinfection. Within three hours the pool was entirely free of E. coli and the water, analyzed by the atomic absorption pro- cess, contained only 3.2 parts of silver per billion parts of water. To determine the enduring efficiency of silver purification, the Allegheny County Health Department in Pennsylvania co-n= ducted tests in a 152,000-gallon pool which previously had been disinfected by a 50-pounds-per-day gas chlorinator. That system was replaced by a silver system for the swimming seasons in 1974 and 1975. Pool water circulated through a filter of activated carbon impregnated with metallic silver. The County Health Department took up to 50 daily samples and found that silver ions remained in the pool at the low, steady rate of 20 parts per billion, with water free of coliform, pseudomonas and staphylococcus bacteria throughout the two seasons. In contrast, 65 water samples from 30 other pools having a mean con- centration of 700 parts per billion of avail- able chlorine for disinfection showed a mean of 1.3 pseudomonas and 7.3 staph cells per milliliter of water. "This data," the Health Department re- ported, "indicates that silver is equal to chlorine in maintaining essentially coli- form-free pool water, and is somewhat better than chlorine in destroying pseu- domonas and staph aureus organisms. The latter two organisms are important from the standpoint of better health. "It should also be noted that there were no visible growths of algae during the test- ing period." The Health Department reported its conclusions thus: "Silver is an effective bactericide for swimming pool water treatment. ''Silver disinfection is easier and safer than other purifying agents. "Silver does not produce changes in pH thus eliminating the need to add pH adjustment chemicals. "Silver at prescribed dosages is non toxic to humans."

It all began (SPOTLIGHT, January 31) when a plumber in the rural village of Liberty became an ordained mail-order minister of the "Universal Life Church" and then proceeded to ordain some 118 adults of the Township of Hardenburgh, the overwhelming majority of the adult landowners of the town. Sweetheart2 of Becomes Terror o In so doing, they were granted property tax exempt status by the town's assessor. The massive tax protest was precipitated by a loophole in the state tax law whic provides tax exempt status for religious groups. Various cults and factions, ranging from Buddhist monks to -Moonies.?' had been usua the loophole at the expense of Har- denburgh's full-time resident taxpayers. Now, the former plumber, George McLain, who has gone from minister to bishop and now cardinal of the mail-order church, has completed the remarkable feat of ordaining more ministers in the church than there are members of the the Tax Rebellion the Court Room EXCLUSIVE TO SPOTLIGHT By Martin A. Larson To me, one of the most interesting and heartening incidents which occurred at the immensely successful convention of the United States Taxpayers Union in Phoenix, Arizona, on March 18-19, was the appearance of a slim young wo- an, Lynn Johnston, of Grand Rapids, Mich. A member of the Libertarian Party, a student of George Kindred's law course, and a tax-resister for ten of her 29 years, she has refused to pay city, state, or federal income taxes by filing Fifth Amendment forms, to which she attached a 44-page memo explaining her position and the unconstitutionality of such levies. At ajury trial, held on February 7, 1977, Dolly Thoburn, a proprietor of Fairfax (Va.)

Mrs. Thoburn is a major supplier of the famed Mc- Guffy readers?used extensively in private schools throughout the nation. in Grand Rapids, she represented herself. Since she was charged by the city with non-payment of the tax, the case was prosecuted by City Attorney George Weible and Assistant City Attorney Rob- ert Mourning in the Court of District Judge Louis E. Simhauser. Durin argument, she contended that all income taxes, as now collected, are unconstitutional; that they violate the Fourth and Fifth Amendments; that Con- gress has no power to transfer the taxing power to an agency of the Executive Branch of the federal government; that the powers exercised by the IRS violate the principles of separation of govern- mental powers; that the 16th Amendment is invalid because Ohio at the time of ratification was not legally a state; that she had asked the IRS and the city author- ities how she could file a return without waiving her constitutional rights, but had received no answer or explanation; that Chief Justice Marshall had declared laws repugnant to the Constitution null and void; and that, since the IRS ode violates several provisions of the Constitution, the entire statute under IRS 'Rules' Against School Exemption WASHINGTON?With no authority whatsoever, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has "ruled" that any . private school which discriminates on racial or ethnic grounds will lose its tax exempt status. Attorney William Lehrfeld, chairman of the Exempt Organizations Committee of the Council on Taxation of the Federal Bar Association, spoke before 200 repre- sentatives of the American Association of Christian Schools here at their annual conference. Lehrfeld, formerly employed with the Internal Revenue Service, spoke on how racial discrimination can affect the tax exempt status of a private Christ- ian school. Lehrfeld said that the Supreme Court (Green vs. Conally) ruled that a private school which practices racial exclusion violates the policy of the federal govern- ment to encourage desegregated schools and therefore is not entitleel to federal tax exemption. V. Other cases also cited included two . . . Without Any Authority Whatsoever Washington, D.C.- suburban schools that barred blacks. To date, the courts have not addressed themselves to private schools that dis- criminate on religious grounds?fearing a clash between the First Amendment guarantee of the "free exercise of reli- gion" and the 13th Amendment (income tax). "Both Fairfax Bruster and Bobby School were organized in response to secular considerations and their educa- tional policies were not designed to propa- gate the tenets of any particular religion. Both schools accept students without re- gard to their religious affiliation or lack thereof," said Lehrfeld. "At the onset, it is important to note some of the questions that these cases do not present," said Lehrfeld. "They do not present any question as to the right of a private social organization to lirnit its membership on racial or any other grounds. "They do not present any question of a private school limiting its student body to boys, to girls or to .the. adherents of a particular faith. . . the Civil Rights Act is in no way addressed to such categories of selectiv- ity. They do not even apply to . private sectarian schools which practice racial exclusion on religions grounds." Lehrfeld said that the Justice Depart- ment and the Supreme Court "ducked" the issue of religious schools because of possible infringement of First Amend- ment guarantees. If a religious school?carrying out the tenets of its religious beliefs?"declines to invite individuals Who are of a different race" they are well. within the law as established by the courts, said. Lehrfeld. As far as the IRS is concerned, it is altogether a different story. "The IRS has rushed headlong into this area and stated flatly that a church, acting as such (i.e., practicing racial_ discrimination in its own schoca in can-y- ing out. its own tenets, if its private school denies admission on racial grounds? - that church will no longer be recognized as a tax exempt organization." If the school is operated "side by side" with a church, but is a separate corpora- tion, then only the school will lose its. tax exempt status, he said. ? "The question must arise in your mind, well, what about the congregation? Is the S going to intrude in the .cangrega-. tion? Is it going ? to intrude into the "era.rchy of the church? Is it- going, to determine whether or not the . racial or ethnic composition of the deacons or ? minister or congregation is inconsistent with its concept of public policies? -? "Ten years ago I thoughtl Would have a. glib answer for you?based simply on a church school. But we are now living with an IRS ruling where they flatly state that they are going to monitor?cast the first stone, if you will?certain racial and ethnic practices of church institu- tions,"? said Lehrfeld. "'I calm& give any er of light at the end of the tonne said Lehrfeld, "as far as hew far the IRS will go." ? 7 clergy of any other faith in the entire State of New York. With his ministerial ordination, each new Universal Life Church minister de- clares his home tax exempt as his church. Usually, the living room is made the church and the remainder of the home the parsonage. "I've ordained 23,275 ministers in the Universal Life Church," McLain said, and by June the number will be 100, 000." No one doubts his sincerity or his ability to accomplish such a feat, including some very troubled state officials. General Assembly Speaker Stanley Steingut of New York City expressed con- cern that the state's tax structure can be ruined. Lester Bourke, supervisor of the Town of Hardenburgh, who joined his fellow townspeople in the protest, said, "Stanley Steingut told me last week that when 50 per cent of the land in the state is off the tax rolls, government won't be affordable any more." At present, according to Assembly- man Peter Mirto, another New York City liberal Democrat who chairs the State Assembly's Committee on Real Property Tax, there is a whopping 46 per cent of the state's land off the tax rolls. Actually, the state accounts for much of the loss of land from the tax rolls. In ad- dition to the state buying up forest land and removing it from the tax rolls, New York laws have been an open invitation to every conceivable organization to claim to be religious and thus exempt. At a recent hearing in nearby Monti- cello, N.Y., the Committee on Real Prop- erty Tax, which is considering "legal action" against assessors who grant wholesale property tax exemptions to Universal Life Church members, was con- fronted by Cardinal McLain. "We're looking for salvation and equality" McLain said. "And we're going to get it. You just rest assured." McLain blasted the liberal New York SPOTLIGHT, April 8, 1977 "Cardinal" Ge news media which has branded ITLC rev- erends as "$2 ministers." "Listen," McLain declared, "we're as legitimate as any other religion in this country and we're applying for and we're going to get what is legally ours. If there are no changes in the law, you people in the state government are going to wind up owning every house in this stinking state." Supervisor Bourke also appeared be- fore the committee, stating: "The Uni- versal Life Church dows not deserve tax exemption, but neither do the Boy Scouts, the Zen Buddhists, the Transcendental Meditation people and the Moonies." Demanding a statewide referendum orge McLain On tax exemptions, Bourke said, it, let the people vote on this." "Farmers are traditionally conservative people," Rudolph Noetzel of the Sullivan County Farm Bureau declared. "But we have a radical idea. Put everything back on the tax rolls. No more free rides in New York State." "You are witnessing here a people's revolt in Sullivan County," Fred Haas of the Committee for Fair Taxation pro- claimed. "The message is quite clear." "The laws are archaic," retired teacher Carolyn Hobbs told the committee. "We'll pay our fair share, but there should be no exemptions except on publicly owned land." "Damn which it operates is null and void. At the trial, Miss Johnston was per- mitted to question the prospective jurors and thus to dismiss those who might be prejudiced against her because of their own economic position and interests. In a stunning reversal of what has hap- pened in various U.S. District Courts, she was acquitted after a brief period of consultation by the panel. Miss Johnston achieved wide publicity in her own state; on February 10 the De- troit "News" ? one of the largest metro- politan dailies in the country?carried a feature story of the event; and on Feb- ruary 26, "The Michigan Daily" pub- lished by the students at the University of Ann Arbor, carried the news in a front- page story with a banner headline, in which Lynn was quoted as saying: "I'm never paying. And there's not a damn thing they (the IRS) can do about it." She added that she had given a specific answer to each question on the tax forms by citing the Fourth and Fifth Amend- ments to the Constitution. We do not know what the future holds in store for this brave and articulate young woman. But one thing is certain: she has already carved a niche for herself in the annals of the tax-rebellion movement. She has lit another torch that will not soon be extinguished. ( God's Word ea, .1(1(1 Linn will live godly in 'rseeuli 11 Tin, =3:12 EXCLUSIVE TO SPOTLIGHT As George Kindred, dean of the Layman Educational Guild at Law and chairman of the Patriots Tax Com- mittee, was preparing for his Active Patriots Classroom March 25, the area around his home was suddenly swarming with lawmen brandishing riot guns, submachine guns and other weapons. Kindred's wife Dorothy said "It looked like a comedy version of a television thriller. I couldn't believe my eyes. Both uniformed and plain clothes police were running back and forth. Some were diving behind trees, bushes and vehicles, while other appeared to be frozen with fear . . . it's a wonder they didn't shoot each other in their panic and disorganization." A neighbor estimated that there were at least 10 cars and two dozen men in the raiding party. The confused group was made up of personnel from the IRS, the marshall's office, state police, and sheriff's depart- ment. The raiding party arrived less than 15 minutes after Kindred granted a "friendly" Michigan State Police detec- tive an interview on an unrelated and in- nocent matter and Kindred was waiting for the detective to arrive. The marshals had a bench warrant and indictment charging Kindred with "aiding and abetting false tax forms and fraud- ulent withholding certificates." Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2010/06/11: CIA-RDP90-00845R000201140004-6 When asked to see the papers, the mar- shal indicated that the warrant and indict- ment from northern Iowa were on the way to them. Asked the reason for such a large dis- play of force, the marshals stated that they had heard that Kindred had many friends and they wanted to avoid bloodshed by a surprise attack. "If I wanted gunplay with any of you, you wouldn't have to come to me; I would come to you," Kindred said. "This is plain Mickey Mouse stuff, and comical." Kindred was lodged in Detroit Police headquarters 70 miles away, and released the next morning on his own recogni- zance. At the hearing March 28, Kindred argued that he had not seen the warrant and indictment, and had no knowledge of the charges. Another hearing was set for April 18. It is obvious as to what is happening," Kindred said. Carter's hatchet man, Morris Dees, said he would wipe out the "rightwing" in 90 days. (SPOTLIGHT, January 10). On top of that, the IRS is trying to knock off the leaders in the cause against confiscatory and unconstitutional taxation, one by one. They pay special attention to those who teach constitutional law and how to assert one's rights against tyranny and bureaucratic despotism. If teaching patriotism and the Constitution is aiding and abetting a crime, then the First Amendment is dead and buried. "The government's charges, forced by the IRS, are absolutely erroneous and they know it. They know perfectly well that I have never counseled anyone on how to file any kind of tax form and they have made themselves subject to both criminal and civil actions by their desperate and fool-hardy attempt to discourage and si- lence my educational endeavors," Kin- dred added. "All their tactics to frighten people into compliance and surrender of rights are an exercise in futility," Kindred said. "Soon the judges shall be judged and the tormentors tormented." 7 14. SPOTLIGHT, April 18, 1977 Deputy's EXCLUSIVE TO SPOTLIGHT Tracey Ehre The image-makers for the Atlanta- based Coca Cola Company?manufac- turers of America's number one cola drink?have over the decades suc- cessfully cultivated an outward facade of benevolence that may well be un- paralleled in the annals of corpor- ate affairs. ) The firm has managed to maintain a public image that appears untarnished to the naked eye of the private citizen. Such astute conservatives as Senators Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.) and John Tower (R- Tex. ) were lulled by the company's facade; not only did they vote to approve the nom- ination of fomer CocaCola president Charles W; Duncan as undersecretary of Defense, but they also joined in a unan- imous committee vote allowing Duncan to retain approximately $13 million worth of Coca Cola common stock. The apparent reason for this was that they were successfully fed the corporate line that Coca Cola was merely a soft drink company with no interests beyond the marketing of their cola and other beverage drinks. Thus Duncan,became the first exception to the much touted White House guide- lines requiring all Carter-appointees to divest themselves of corporate holdings. To complicate this picture further,The SPOTLIGHT has ascertained that the reasons given for this exception vary with the source. For example, a UPI report quoted Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John Stennis (D-Miss.) as saying, The committee made an outright exception to the rule and will not ask him to divest himself of the stock.'' In explaining the rationale for this ex- ception, UPI quotes Stennis as saying that Coca Cola is not involved in military pro- cienti S sts Bucking ancer Bureaucrats curement contracts, but simply sells soft drinks to the Pentagon. He added that the company's Pentagon business amounted to only $13 million a year, or less than one- half of one percent of Coca Cola's annual $3 billion in sales. Stennis apparently made no comments as to how these particular figures were ob- tained, nor did he note that there were competing soft drink companies?such as Pepsi Cola, Royal Crown, etc.?who would be placed at a profound disadvan- tage in their dealing with the military. James Smith, a staff member of the Stennis Committee, offered a somewhat different explanation in the course of an interview with The SPOTLIGHT. In con- firming that Duncan had been allowed to keep his stock, Smith stated that the com- mittee acted as it did because "in accor- dance with the Carter guidelines he was not required to dispose of it unless it would impact inordinately on his decision- making." He added that the committee considered the case and "saw no conflict of interest in the matter." Smith also noted that Duncan was, under the law, prohibited from making any decisions that would affect Coca Cola and that the committee was aware of the company's multinational interests at the time of the vote. He volunteered that there was no recorded vote taken either in the committee or in the Senate on the Duncan nomination or the stock exemption to the best of his recollection. The real reason for this exemption from the provisions of the Carter-Mondale conflict of interest and financial guide- lines appears however to have little to do with either the Stennis or Smith explana- tions. A February 9, 1977, White House press release reveals instead that the Senate was merely complying with the wishes of President Carter, whose close relationship with Coca Cola has been repeatedly docu- 7 By Bernadine Bailey After six years of explaining why success in the fight against cancer should not be expected for years, and despite spending billions, the only reported progress in the govern- ment's cancer program seems to be that the "U.S. is gaining knowledge" in the field of cancer "from the U.S.- Soviet research effort." But, the Department of Health, Educa- tion and Welfare (HEW) announcement to this effect last November was unspeci- fic, intimating that it will be a long time before results can be evaluated. Meanwhile, many thousands of unfor- tunate cancer victims, their doctors, and their friends are being hounded by government agents. Some have been prosecuted because they are using effective cancer therapy not officially approved. Now, however, a vigorous offensive is being organized to combat the cancer bureaucrats who have been obstructing the fight against cancer by independent doctors, researchers and scientists.' One of these courageous'sioneers was the world-renowned scien?st Dr. Andrew Ivy, who developed a successful treatment for cancer many years ago. But Dr. Ivy was continually harassed and persecuted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) until in utter frus- tration, he recently decided to retire. This distressed numerous patients he was helping with his discovery, Carcalon. The FDA has never allowed the drug to be shipped out of Illinois, with the result that many cancer victims had been forced to move to Chicago, literally, in order to keep alive. Although Dr. Ivy had spectacular success with Carcalon, and hundreds of persons living today owe their lives to his research, he never called it a "cure," and never charged for the treatment. Nevertheless, indisputable evidence over a period of years clearly demons- trated that his therapy eliminated pain, reduced the size of tumors, and gave a noticeable feeling of well-being in a large percentage of cases. Thirty-five varieties of cancer have been successfully treated in this way. In view of this phenomenal success, the Ivy Cancer Research Foundation has determined to carry on the work begun by Dr. Ivy. Patients are continuing to receive his treatment. Further research is being carried on by Dr. Z. Godlowski, a practi- Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2010/06/11: CIA-RDP90-00845R000201140004-6 mented by The SPOTLIGHT. The release clearly confirms the President's over- riding role in the matter by stating: "Under the President's guidelines, which were released by the Carter-Mond- dale Transition Group January 4, the Pres- ident intends that any exceptions to the guidelines be made only with his express consent with respect to Level I and II ap- pointments." (Level I and II refer to Sec- retaries and to other high-ranking Cabinet officials.) The primary reasons for granting the exemption were outlined as follows: In the case of Duncan the exception was allowed because sale of the stock in question would cause serious and unrea- sonable financial loss because of the taxes imposed on such a sale of the stock. In addition, Mr. Duncan's...disqualification on matters affecting the firm in question would rarely inhibit" his actions. An examination of correspondence addressed to the undersecretary by the President concerning this matter further reveals that although Duncan is required to place his holdings in the hands of a trustee, he will maintain an active role in relation to his Coke stock, Carter wrote in part: You will transfer your other publicly held securities and your Coca Cola stock to a trustee or trustees who will be ap- propriately instructed to insulate invest- ments from you and your family; and who will be fully authorized and directed to buy and sell assets of the trust in their discre- tion without your knowledge except that you may limit their discretion to sell some or all of the stock in the Coca Cola Com- pany. "You will formally disqualify your- self as deputy secretary of Defense from acting on any particular matter as defined in 18 U.S.C. 208(a) affecting the financial interests of the Coca Cola Company." What this actually translates to is that Cancer On Laetril Duncan?unlike any other administration appointee to date?remains free to mon- itor and make all decisions with regard to his Coca Cola holdings. These facts of course have been either totally ignored or deeply buried by the establishment press. Instead, the public has in effect been seduced into believing that the giant con- glomerate's activities are of such a benign nature that the firm would be hard pressed to have any vested interest in the affairs of the U.S. military. Nothing could be further from the truth. An examination of Coca Cola's corpor- ate activities reveals a long-standing and almost symbiotic relationship with the Department of Defense and its far-flung military installations that dates back to the outbreak of World War II. According to the firm's published his- tory, the thrust and direction of the com- pany's effort during World War II were nunciated by then Coca Cola president Robert W. Woodruff who issued the fol- lowing directive: We will see that every man in uniform gets a bottle of Coca Cola for five cents wherever he is and whatever it costs. Although this soft drink is far from nut- ritious and certainly not an essential dietary staple for the U.S. armed forces, Coca Cola went to great lengths?with the cozy cooperation of the American military to fulfill its pledge. In so doing, they coincidentally in- creased their worldwide infiltration of foreign markets so as to emerge from the war in a greatly strengthened financial condition. Their efforts also created a greatly strengthened product loyalty among Americans overseas (as well as foreign nationals) and undoubtedly introduced many thousands of GI's to this possibly habit-forming drink for the first time.

The designation of so-called "tech- nical observers" to operate these plants? all Coca Cola employees who were attached to the armed forces and three of whom were to become war casualties. ? The development of combination ice- making machines and coke dispensers called "jungle units" which were de- signed to fit on almost all military trans- portation facilities, so that the drink would be available to combat personnel in the Pacific. ? The dispatch of a cablegram from Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower?and known as the 'Eisenhower Order' ?requesting the shipment of 10 bottling plants to North Africa.

As a result of these and many efforts? all successfully orchestrated with the help of the American military and the Depart- ment of Defense where coke's former president is now the No. 2 man? the corp- oration ended the war with 155 bottling plants operating in the six former military theaters of operation. Many of these had been installed with ciety Slaps nd Claims Colon the help of armed forces personnel. and at a time when Democratic big-wig James A. Farley?who had been Pres- ident Frankin D. Roosevelt's Postmaster General?was serving as board chairman of the Export Corporation. In the years since the war, Coca Cola has established operations not only in nations friendly to the U.S., but in such politically sensitive areas as the Soviet- dominated countries of Eastern Europe. The company also has been extremely active in the "third world" nations, and in 1974 it owned four bottling plants in Southern Africa in addition to having franchised an additional 48 plants in the same area. Duncan also enjoyed the opportunity of becoming personally aquainted with Coca Cola's vested overseas interests, for he served four years as the chairman of Coca Cola Europe. President Carter's close friend and unofficial advisor, J. Paul Austin?now chairman of Coca Cola and at one point widely rumored to be in line for a top cabinet post?was in charge of the African division of the Export Corp. for about four years. Although the staggering worldwide economic leverage exerted by Coca Cola, its subsidiaries and its bottlers is certainly sufficient to raise serious doubts and questions about the appointment of Duncan to the powerful Defense post and the exception made by both the Senate and the White House in allowing him to keep his vast stockholdings, Coca Cola's involvement on the international scene goes even further. The company's entire business and so- called community relations activities are so vast that The SPOTLEGHT plans to explore them further. They are, however, all aimed at cemen- ting the firm's economic position in hun- dreds of nations?both allies and adver- saries of the U.S.?and in many nations Testimonials The SPOTLIGHT obtained its informa- tion by a reporter calling the Washington office saying he had colon cancer and asked if laetrile would be of any help.

A man convicted of a crime later admitted to in a death- bed confession by a Klan member is up for parole consideration after serving four years of a nine-year sentence for blowing up empty school buses in Pontiac, Mich., during the 1971 busing controversy. Rev. Robert Miles is in the U.S. federal prison in Marion, Ill., for the alleged crime of depriving "children of the right to an education" ? a fancy way of saying he blew up 10 empty school buses. According to Miles the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had prior knowledge that the empty buses were to be blown up three weeks in advance but did not in- form local authorities. The FBI even of- fered to put Miles on their payroll as an informer after he garnered a respectable 20,000 votes for the state legislature in 1970. Miles refused. In the latter part of this month he will be considered for parole?although the prison parole committee' has declined to recommend him despite his record as a model'' prisoner. Miles has distinguished himself as a Christian leader among the inmates and publishes a prison newspaper which features patriotic and Christian articles written by Miles and other inmates. The Committee to Free Robert Miles in a letter to Carter, said "Draft evaders were pardoned to heal the wounds of the Vietnam war. Wealthy Red heiresses are free on bail despite terrorist activities . . . Watergate prisoners have been given parole and freedom . . . Please exert your influence to obtain the parole of this man."

Now, however, the ACS claims their own "cure" but the statistics indicate they are waging a losing battle with their "cure." According to ACS's own statistics the cancer rate accelerated in 1972 at its fastest pace in 22 years despite the massive amount of government and pri- vate money doled out to research insti- tutions. ACS takes in about $93 million an- nually. The American Hospital Associa- tion places the total cost of cancer re- search and treatment at $3 billion annual- ly?an increase of 150 percent over a 10-year period. Despite numerous tests which support laetrile, the ACS maintains that none exist. "It (laetrile) has been the most widely tested cancer drug," said Mrs. Madancy. "You know testimonials are unreliable. You just can't rely on testimonials." It is becoming difficult for the medical monopoly to ignore the hundreds of peo- ple who insist that laetrile has successfully CHARLES W. DUNCAN Coca Cola and its bottlers sponsor pro- grams clearly aimed at shaping the minds and values of young children. If you wonder just how Undersecretary Duncan views his former company's inter- national activities, the following remark, made in the course of an interview with the Atlanta "Journal"sometime prior to 1974, is revealing: We sell our products in five socialist countries, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland and Czechoslovakia.... I think it's good when a company such as ours goes into a socialist country." Given these publicly expressed views by the undersecretary on the oppressed, Soviet dominated nations of Eastern Europe (for which the Carter's Admin- instration has professed such compassion with regard to the issue of human rights) together with Coca Cola's avowed eco- nomic and social domination of a large portion of this planet, an investigation of this so-called "stock divestiture excep- tion" should be launched by the Con- gress. Both the Congress and the public should keep a close eye on the man who will be making significant decisions on matters ranging from weapons sales to the deployment of military intelligence units. In almost every case, Duncan will be making policy decisions that will affect not only the interests of the Amer- ican public but of the international for- tunes of Coca Cola. The argument that this corporation's relationship to the Pentagon is merely limited to the sale of $13 million worth of soft drinks simply does not hold water.

Despite these well-documented tests, ACS told The SPOTLIGHT, "Nobody has been able to show any objective proof that it has any value. That's it in a nut- shell." When asked if ACS had sponsored any investigations into the claims made for laetrile, the answer was "no."

MOST NATIONAL NEWS PUBLICATIONS COST YOU TWICE AS MUCH AS THE SPOTLIGHT, BUT YOU ONLY GET HALF THE NEWS-THE HALF THE ESTAB- LISHMENT IN WASHINGTON WANTS YOU TO HEAR. Only in The SPOTLIGHT do you get exclusive news about issues that the con- trolled press has ignored. Who told you six months in advance that the Swine Flu vaccine program was dangerous? Was it the "Washington Post," "New York Times," "Newsweek," or "Time?" No. It was The SPOT- LIGHT. And who told you the only plausible and scientifically sound explanation for the "Legionnaires Disease?" Again, it was The SPOTLIGHT that carried the ex- pose that linked the killings with the toxic chemical, nickel carbonyl. "Newsweek" magazine, which would cost you $26.00 per year, told you that parrot fever may have killed the Legionnaires-without explaining how nickel deposits were found in the lung tissue of every dead convention-goer. Those are only a few examples of why you need The SPOTLIGHT today, and why your friends and relatives ought to have a subscription. The SPOTLIGHT has kept its readers abreast o all the important issues of the day. It will continue to keep you well-informed. While "Newsweek" and "Time" magazine entertain the masses with slick paper and multi-colored photos, The SPOTLIGHT readers are educated with solid news written and re- searched by the country's leading nationalist journal- ists. -1'ellIllIllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII111111111111111111111[111111111111111111191111111111111111111111111911111111111111111111911111111111111111111111111111111111111111191111111111111111311119111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111 I 1111111111111E4- "Gentlemen, Place You 1111i111111111111111.1111111111111illi1111111111111111111111111111111111111P1/1/111111111111111111111i1M1111111131111111111111111111111111114113111101'111111411111111111111111111111111111111111111111111113a " ed mental se WsP, imenY eee, in the e nst -spread fraud = engendered a' .:epitol Hill but ,eeps expanding e franc amounts Some states are to families with the weather, is nopt; but nobody an eleenon year Liberty Ledger scores all 535 members of the U.S. Congress for the first session of 1975.
