"They will make an interesting file to which reference can be made after this hysteria is over," Walter H. Mohr, George School, Pa."My purpose in submitting this check was to make a very humble contribution toward expense of the inimitable Sargent Bulletins. These bulletins are worthy of wide circulation," J. Garton Needham, Simmons Col. "We need an army of men like you to stem the tide of making an army out of the entire population,"--Walter H.

Bitter and hysterical times ahead--it is a frightful reflection on the Administration, State Department, government officials, the press and our intellectual leaders, that Czaristic persecution should be anticipated by those who attempt to get at the truth and tell it. All that was anticipated last winter in Buls #34 and #35 has now come to pass. But worse is ahead. Recall the Palmer red drives of 1920. To Thomas Lamont's query as to the future, H. G.
