Kennedys Run the Show
The President has used his office in the last three years to take powers for himself at the expense of other branches of government.
In 1964, America will face the biggest decision in her history. If John F. Kennedy is returned to the White House, our nation probably will never again have the opportunity of a free election.

Chameleon in Politics
The articles of Victor Lasky, plus Robert Kennedy’s recent pronouncement on the civil-rights bill, show that the man who wrote “Profiles in Courage” is a chameleon in politics. The majority of the people in the United States are not only against these civil-rights bills, but they are also opposed to all foreign aid.

Dallas Mob Violence
Your fair city really made headlines. I am referring to the mobbing of the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
I had heard that Dallas was a city of conservatives, but it was only until I read that Mr. Stevenson had been spat on that I realized that moderation, toleration and rational thinking had given way to mob violence and insanity.
It is a sad city where anyone who happens to differ from the view of the Birchers is mobbed.

Wheat Sale Condemned
Many parents have scolded their children for having done something wrong and then heard the child say, “Everybody else does it.”
What should a parent do if a child breaks the law, commits a crime and then replies, “President Kennedy does it?”
The child would be telling the truth.
R. H. Pickens, 2000 Fidelity Union Tower, Dallas, Oct. 31
In noting the continued furor raised about the treatment of Adlai Stevenson on his recent visit to Dallas, I would like to say first I do not condone the accidental hitting of Stevenson on the head or any ugly demonstrations made against him. However … if visiting notables would be kind enough to remain in the protection of the police, the name of Dallas would not be so dragged in the mud.

Where Are We Headed?
We need to know why President Kennedy, in contradiction to his campaign promises, has impoverished the nation, abandoned the Monroe Doctrine, let the communists take Cuba, signed the test-ban treaty and sold wheat to Russia, all of which aids communism and hurts our American way of life which some of us still love dearly.

Kennedy Failures Mount Every Week
Kennedy has compromised his pledges; he has turned his back on the deluded souls who had some degree of faith in him; he has given up his own convictions; and now he even is letting Robert call the turns for him. He seems to have no firm dedication except to getting votes, not matter the vacillations of principle.

Welcome to the President
Many Texas people will agree that we owe respect and courtesy to our President and his wife. Regardless of our party affiliation, let’s show the Kennedys that Texas people have good manners.
