THE COMMITTEE for the Defense of Public Education, a joint Committee of the Teachers Unions in New York City, paid for radio time over WMCA to tell you about these things, to let you know what the needs of the schools are. But the Rapp-Coudert Committee didn’t want you to know. They forced the radio station to cancel the contract.

The teachers tried to tell you about these things. They were suspended from their jobs.

The Union tried to get word to you. The Rapp-Coudert Committee seized its membership list and attacked its members as subversive.

What do you think of all this, Mr. Jones and Mrs. Smith and Mr. Giovanni and Mrs. Abramson?

Do you think it’s something that concerns you?

Do you think it’s worth thinking about?

Speaking about?

Fighting about?

If you do, it’s time to speak up.
