General note

“I’m ashamed of myself and sorry for not having written you sooner about that diabolical ‘Operation Abolition’ film on the student demonstrations in S.F.;” says the students in the film had behaved terribly, were violent, and were almost surely communist dupes but he believes the film to be a “false and treacherous production. I wish I could tell you in detail just how it is false but it would take more time than I can afford;” says the film is out of the actual time sequence so certain scenes are out of context and also talks about how the film had falsified it’s sound track; the most important fact of what happened during the student demonstration was that “The students were completely non-violent.”
