Next entry
King writes a cablegram to Alfred Hassler, the executive director of FOR, who is in Saigon, Vietnam. King writes, "The war in Vietnam must be stopped... While we are all concerned about Communist invasion, we must instill in the mind of our nation that the way to fight Communism is not through bombs, guns and gases. It is through economic and political programs that will convince the people of the world that only in democratic society can man prosper and develop to his full potential."
