They aust indeed believe, now, that Guatanalaation of savages.

Aras being given to workers, toeople's amy, are being accepted by amtl-ccmueunlst elements,elcome addition to tbe supplies they will need on the big day.

The army has been stunned by the faot that tbe government sees fit to go over its head to ftomm "popular" forcea. This last breach of faith was the straw that broke the back of the camel with many officers who were doubtful before, if the army is not to be trusted to defend the national interactsj and must be superoeded by farmers, than there must certainly be something fishy in Denmark. This move, added to the faot that the army has only seen small portions of the recently arrived arms, convinces good officers and men that they are being by-passed to serve nefarious government plana for national and international treason.

"Kueatra Cgapana Radial"t Part onehree part series on Communist Penetration in Labor Unions. Onionsasic and integral part of the oountry, and tbe work and participation of unions in International conferences, such ae the Russian "peaceheir sympathy with North Korea, theirId behalf of the Rosenbergs, and all such things make them aboard of International relationships. Thus far, sadly, the world haa only been able to confirm its doubts about Guat-Soviet ties through tbe representations of the unions. Names and dates of Communist infiltration,etailed history of the WS labor movement, and the sly entrance of commies, agents of Moscow.

It waa forgotten that their can be no dictatorship without tbe suffering of families, homes broken and children spying on their own mothers and fathers."

"SaoRre do riartirea.i" The 7theries of dramatized Red crimes in Guata-mal*.. Full radio theatre, with sound effects, musical back-I grounds. 1st episodeeries dramatizing the tortures * of Federioo Paiz Herrera. Hie arrest without legal pro-1 ceedure. The days he was hold without news of hisarrest beint made public. His family desperate, unable to locate hia. The scenes of hi3 torture in the basement of the headquarters of ths Guarida Civil.

"Pegando Cantro": aily short broadcast with ominous sound effects, which isolate ohe single commie and gives him hell. Based onreports when available, on notional and vagueor accusations when not. Today's example:

"Attention, Chaco Delgado. Attention, Chaco Delgado. Radio Liberation addresses iteelf to Chaco Delgado. Traitoryou are living for only one reason, because we had hoped to fight our battleslean and dignified way, to avoid bloodshed by violent acts andas were made Friday night. But we now know that you are currently workingalse document, in which*you will try and throw mm blame on innocents at the expense of tha anti-Communists. You have signed your death warrant, Chaco, and now you will die among theto." (Sound effect of falling bomb and explosion).

"Loe Acusaaos Oe Alto Tracion" : Oneegular series oi" pro^rsas directed to J. Arbenz, sealing his grave beyond all possibilities of back-tracking. This day he is accused as the nan whose hand operates tha Red guillotine which took the life of Arena, and who today continues to place the Army in the terrible position of having toall fairness to themselves and to their

belovedfight against the present government

"and now that (he has allowed) Communism to dominate our country, has tried to weaken the military forces, and has even forced some, butew, of our soldiers to act against tbe oath they havee must beraitor, and thus judged, and so he shall be punished.11

It is the oradmEof Liberty, forming the ideas which will make us great. Libertycience. What happens when am our schools are simply XmwOi factories turning out sterile minds indoctrinated with the subversive ideas of Communism. It is now almost too late to protect our own children from this, unless we teach them in the home, and remember that the overnment sometimes forces teachers, who must live, to teach their students the half-truths and hypocrises of Communism.

"tvews From Raoin Liberation": The final program of all broadcasts is this

Winehell style report of late news, with interpretations. The great majority quote national and hemispheric newspapers, adding pertinent comment. The comments are often black,

Eaamples: It is announced that the Government of Hondurasandlandestine radio station functionservice of Communism. hort time it was rumouredthat this was our station, but our continuedonce aaac more put the lie to this "hope" of thethen,ood time to remind our listeners thatthe only authorized station of the Liberatiohbas only twoother special times of
