(NAT. SND.) I am constrained at this point to refer again to the officially Propagated allegation of the Communist leaders that the United Nations command in Korea have employed germ and gas war. In the whole black record of false propaganda/these charges should stand out as a monumental warning, to the American people and the free world, a warning as menacing and as urgent as a forest fire bearing down on a wooden village. The extent to which Communist leaders world wide have gone in fabricating disseminating and persistently pursuing these false charges to impress upon the brains of those who have yet to fail or refuse to see the purpose of Communism the deadly danger which confronts us and the free world.
