Without committing them to its statements, this book is admiringly dedi- cated to all those sincere fighters for American liberty and Christian principles who, because of their opposition to Red propaganda and the "new social order" of Marx and Lenin, are denounced as "professional patriots", super-patriots", "100 per centers", "patrioteers", and "Tories" by their Red opponents. Particular mention is gratefully made of those "patrioteers" who have aided and encouraged the author in her effort to bring to the sound but still sleeping portion of the American public the truth about the Communist- Socialist world conspiracy which, with its four horsemen, Atheism, Immorality, Class Hatred, and Pacifism-for-the-sake-of-Red-revolution, is boring within our churches, schools and government and is undermining America like a cancerous growth. Among these are:
The national headquarters of the staunch D. A. R. (of which the author, unfortunately, is not a member), which reprinted each article in her former pamphlet "Red Revolution" and sent copies to each chapter in the U. S. A. The D. A. R. members are the best informed body of women in America on this subject and are correspondingly detested by the Reds.
Senator Clayton R. Lusk, whose gift of the most valuable and complete 4,450-page four-volume Report of the Joint Legislative Committee of the State of New York Investigating Seditious Activities, a report based upon indisputable documentary evidence made by the committee which he headed, has made available the background and information concerning the Red move- ment up to the year 1920, when it was issued, which is incorporated within this book.
Lt. Nelson E. Hewitt, a super-expert-patriot who has devoted twelve years of his life to active statistical work and study on Red subversive activities, who edits the Advisory Associates weekly Bulletins which every "super-patriot" needs (P. O. Box. 403, Chicago) and who has given the greatest personal aid of all, having devoted a number of full days of his time to check- ing and supplying information used in this book.
Francis Ralston Welsh, Philadelphia attorney and research expert on sub- versive activities a real "super-patriot" who has sent many excellent reports.
Miss Margaret Kerr, executive secretary of the "professional patriots' Better America Federation, which placed and has kept the Criminal Syn- dicalism Law on the statute books of California despite the frantic efforts of the Reds to repeal it who has sent valuable data.
Mr. Walter Steele, manager of the "100 per centers' National Republic magazine (511 llth St. N. W., Wash., D. C.) and author of its articles on subversive activities which are unsurpassed, who has sent excellent special information. All "patrioteers" need the "National Republic"
Mr. Harry Jung, a "professional patriot", of the American Vigilant Intelli- gence Federation, sufficiently annoying in his anti-Red "free speech" to be Dedication honored by intimidating libel suits filed by the notorious "free-speech-for- Reds-only" A. C. L. U. (whose Chicago office is the office of its member, Carl Haessler of the Communist school of Red revolution and the Reds' Federated Press). Mr. Jung kindly loaned the author some documents.
Mr. John B. Chappie, editor of the Ashland (Wis.) Press, author of "La Follette-Socialism," etc., whose courageous exposure in the face of death threats of the Socialist-Communist network in Wisconsin defeated the La Follette dynasty in the 1932 election for the first time in forty years, who sent his helpful book and pamphlets to the author.
Those who have assembled large and distinctive audiences to hear the author's lectures, among them: Paul G. Armstrong, Vice Commander Dept. of 111., American Legion, and many other valiant Legion Commanders; U. S. Army and Navy Officers Club; the men of the Chicago Military Intelligence; leaders of: the Illinois Federation of Women's Clubs; Moody Church and Bible Institute; Women's Patriotic League; Catholic organizations; Funda- mentalist and other anti-Bolshevik, anti-Atheist Churches; Clubs; Community mass meetings; etc., etc.
Col. Sidney Story, lecturer and fiery patriot; W. H. Chesbrough, Wis- consin Commander of the G. A. R. Maude Howe of the Canadian Christian ; Crusade (against atheism) ; Nesta Webster, world famous English historian and author of "Surrender of an Empire", "World Revolution", "French Revolution", etc.; my friends Mr. and Mrs. George Cretors, residents of Soviet Russia while Mr. Cretors was employed there as an engineer; Mr. John E. Waters, also a former engineer for the Soviet Government, whose true story entitled "Red Justice" is available at 50c (P. O. Box 242, Madison, Wis.) ; Mr. Carveth Wells, famous lecturer and author of "Kapoot", a graphic account of his Russian experiences; Mrs. C. D. Shipley, tireless patriotic worker in Waukegan, 111., a Red stronghold.
After reading the author's pamphlet "Red Revolution", David Kinley, the brilliant and loyal-American president-emeritus of the University of Illi- nois,wroteinpart: "I congratulate you on your clear and earnest exposition of the situation, and I quite agree with you that it is time something were done to prevent the evil influence of the advocates of Communism and their allies. The allies include a good many people who would refuseto be called Communists, but whose influence, through various associations, tends to strengthen the work and claims of that group. I agree with you that it is time that parents should look more closely into the influence of the teachers of the schools and colleges which their children attend."
Mr. and Mrs. James H. Watt of Chicago declare: "From a viewpoint gained through our recent residence of fifteen months in an American engineering colony in Soviet Russia, the statements of Mrs. Albert W. Billing concerning conditions prevalent in that country are found to be absolutely authentic and of invaluable import."
May "professional patriots" increase and multiply; may they cease to be lone voices crying in the wilderness; may their number and activities grow strong enough to avert now threatening Socialism or Fascism, and to pre- serve for America, Christianity, the American Constitution, and American liberty.
