Thousands of American boys gave their lives, and we spent billions and billions ofdollars
to prevent our old friend - CHINA - from being conquered by imperialist Japan.
Almost overnight CHINA was lost - but to an imperialistic RUSSIA.
Apparently Washington did not know what was happening in the Far East for, just 15 days
before we became involved in the "Korean police action", we were told, by our President,
that we were never closer to Peace!


" " 0 0 0 "

TO DATE Korea has meant this to our country:
Over 1,100,000 young men have been drafted into military service;
About 47,000 young men are being drafted each month now;
Over 500,000 American boys are in Korea, and there are already over a million Korean war
Our battle casualties approach one eighth of a million (125,000) and include approximately
20,000 killed in action and over 12,000 missing in action.
Directly and indirectly the Korean war is costing us about 50 billions of dollars a year -
not including the costs to the American consumer because of the inflationary effect of an


economy based,

in large part, on war.


Tomorrow? That is the sad part of this whole affair. Our present administration offers us
nothing but a "stalemate" - a continuance of this same awful pogram. Nor does the Dem-
ocratic candidate for President offer anything but the status quo.

* If WAR is "unsuccessful diplomacy' what a terrible record the Democratic administration
has made! Let's give IKE and his team a chance to prove that there is another way out, and
