Title

[Letter] 1959, April 20 [to] Congressman Watkins Moorman Abbitt

Description

A letter and enclosed clipping from "The Worker" sent by frequent correspondent Landon Lane. The article clipping was titled "Nation's Youth to Demonstrate! Now's the Time to Integrate!" and Lane's commentary on the subject was that the gradual integration plans of politicians like Almond and Perrow were "playing directly in the hands of the Communists." Lane believed that communists must be fought on the home front first before they can be dealt with abroad.
