MONlEY FOR KATANGA

Obviously their money is coming from somewhere beyond the borders
of the Congo.
In view of the burst of thoughtless sentimentality on the
part of a California housewife 'iT/ho recently enjoyed headline space
in The New York Times and elsewhere, by contributing 1tl,OOO to the
United Nations, and more especially in view of the rifling of
UNICEB' funds (which are supposed to be used for feeding the hungry
children of the world) by the General Assembly to pay for the
continuing of Katangans, we feel that it would be a solid
answer to these outrages for FRIENDS OF Kf\TANGA to contri
bute at least ra,ooo to the Katangan treasury. Therefore we urge
you; nay, we beg you, to send at least one dollar to ftlizabeth
ville, VIA BRUSSELS.
KATANGA STICKERS
We enclose with this issue of our newsletter a sample
of a sticker which we have prepared for use on letters, bills,
and other communications and which we commend to the entire
membership. Many organizations have adopted the use of similar
stickers with great effect, and we hope that our membership will
be amenable to the idea. Frankly, vIe also hope to make a small
profit for the organization on these stickers which will help
defray the cost of at least one of our expenditures. are
of.fering them at one dollar for a sheet of twenty-four. Please
address your orders for stickers to the Executive Secretary,
American Friends of Katanga, at our New York Office.
REPHIlJTS OF
\1Je urge the membership to obtain and distribute copies of
speeches, especially in Congress, of defenders of Katangan free
dom. The leading membersof Congress ~ 1 0 have x X ~ spoken out on
this subject are Senator Thomas J. Dodd of Connecticut and Repre
sentative Donald C. Bruce of Indiana. Copies maybe obtained
by writing to these !'.tIembers of Congress in iVashington.
A NETWORK OF CHAPFERS
The possibilities of really effective action by
AMERICAN .B'RIENDS OF KATANGA working through a
system of chapters located allover the country
are almost illimitable. Other conservative organ
izations have already shown the usefulness of this
method, as indeed have many Liberal ~ ~ g x H groups.
It is particularly important to inaugurate chapters
at the colleges and universities, where enthusiasm
for the conservative revival is running especially
high, Regular community chapters are also, of course,
very effective. Those of our members who wish to do
so are authorized by the New York office to establish
chapters as they see fit, subject to reasonable con
formance with the aims of the organization as a whole.
~ ' 1 e should like such chapters to submit to us a list
of members' names and addresses, and those of the
officers of the chapter. There will normally be a
President or Chairman, Vice President or Vice Chair
man,
and a Secretary-Treasurer.
The New York office does not envision a rigid hier
archical pyramid, and will not require set dues from
members. However, since money is, to a large degree,
power in an organization like ours, we should be very
glad if new chapters would resolve to contribute, say,
one dollar per member per month. The cretary-Treasurer
could collect this money, pay the chapter's obligations
,,'lith it, and forward the remainder, if any, to the
New York Office, or, in line vlith our plea for
funds for the Katangan 'I'reasury elsewhere in this
newsletter, the chapter :might send money directly
to Katanga.
Chapters, although x ~ d expected to epthe
New York office informed of their activities, would
be quite e to undertake any activities, such as
ctures, demonstrations, or other vrork, so long
as it,did not interfere seriously with the co-ordinated
work of the organization as a whole or did not conflict
with the aims of our group.
He welcome the formation of chapters, then, and remain
at times open to construction suggestions from both
chapters and individual members.
AMERICAN PRIENDS 0:&""\ KATANGA is preparing a general informati'onal
paper on Katanga, since we are acutely aware of the urgent need
for background among Americans concerned with the plight of this
beleaguered land. However, until that paper can be prepared, and
because many inquiries have been received about other groups "vork
ing for Katangan freedom, we list below several addresses which
may be useful.

On the language problem, it may be generally stated that all com
munications may be sent in English. Since nearly all educated
Belgians have learned English as well as the two languages of
Belgium, the reply will probably arrive in English as well. This
also applies to letters sent to Katanga itself.
Encouraging letters to President Tshombe would also be welcome,
but they should make it clear that no reply is expected. Please
see our newsletter plea for funds for the Katangan Treasury. In
all cases, when communicating with anyone in Katanga, it is essen
tial to mark the envelopes clearly "VIA BRUSSELS, Jl so that they
will not be routed through where they will be confis

Dear Friend:
you for' yoW" inquiry about the AMERICAN FRIENPS OF KATAliGA. The of
.our (!)rganization will be to try to influence our government to. reverse i ts
unfriendly policy toward Katanga. The left-wing edemies of. Katanga havecoIdmltted them
selves to tlie total destruction of that free, and fiercely.antt-communist
state in the heart of Africa. Their reasons are obvious: Kata:nga is the proof that
Europeans and Africans can .work together on a basis. of mutual' ..respect. Katanga is
also an African state that believes in free-enterprJ.se g the baS1C rights of the individual,
and the sanctity of private property. Moreover, Katanga has not asked for a hand.:ot from
the American' taxpayer. This 0 in the fJyesof the communists-t might a"rve as too strong an
example for the other ex-colonies.
, "
In addition Katanga has 7f1fo of .the world's cobalt resources; and how much bette.r
can the comminists cr1pplethe West Us nuclear defense than by depriving us of the essen...
tial raw materials? What it meane
v
finally, is that the communists will not rest until
theyh.ave concl'llered Katanga
p
and they are using the U.N .--the Trojan: horse of our time..
as the bes't-suited iristrument by which to accomplish .this o "
,It will be our job to get American public opinion solidly behind the best potential
ally we have in Africa. Our State Department
v
which.has misled tis time and time again>is
basically in with :the UN Us objectives. We, the people of this country, must
make it plain to the Administration that we are against the UN's policy to destroy Katanga
and protest otlr 0s complicity in this -policy0 .
How Can we do this1 There are many ways 0 Individually. we "can write to President
Kennedy'v Stevenson, Go Hennen Williams
n
Secretary of State Rusk and our Con
"We can and should also write to our local newspapers as well as to suoh ,
national magazines as Life t Look. Time or Newsweek whenever they- cfIrryarticles lauding
the UN for its glorious work in'the Congoo The organs of the must feel the pressure
of our indignation. We should always threaten to cancel our subscriptions if the news
papers or magazines to which we subscribe fail to report th_e news objectively.
A.s a group there are many other things we can do. We rcan take' ads in the major newS:'
papers; we can hoId public forums; we can distribute literature. But all of this takes
money_ Each one of us is forced by way of taxation to support financially the work of the.
State Department and the UN; but the only way we can sponsor really effective anti-Commu
nist work is b.Y voluntary contribution. Therefore. I appeal to you to'contribute whatever
you to' our working fund. I agree with you that if our government was doing the job,
we would not have to do it ourselves. But this is the tragedy of our nation and our time.
Our first project isupderway. We are preparing a monthly Newsletter, the first
issue of which will be sent to you as soon as it is ready. This Newsletter will be dis
tributed as widely as resources permit. There are other projects that can be initiated.
And here is where you come in. Most of you have asked what can you do to help. I have
provided Borne. of the The rest must come from you. What the committee
has done is SJ.ll1ply the instrument through which we. as individual citizens,
act and be heard. In order for each one o us to be able to do what he thinks he can do

It will enable us to work more effectively.

Dear Friend:
Thank you for ,joining the AMERICAN FRIENDS OF KATANGA" As you knowI the left
wing enemies of Katanga have not yet given up the hope of destroying that self..
supporting and fiercely anti-Communist state in the heart of Africa. In they
are planning new agression with the cooperation of the UN_-the Trojan horse...in order
to destroy and all obstacles to a Communist takeover. You can be sure that the
Communists will not rest until they have destroyed
It will be our job to get American public opinion solidly behind our best poten
tial ally in so thato even if Katanga is it will not have beel'l
with. Ams:zrioa's help. Our State Department

whioh so criminally m.isled us to acoept

against the UN's polioy to destroy Katanga"
How can we do this '1 There are many ways Indhridually we can write to
President Kennedyt Adlai Stevenson, G. Mennon \vUliams t Secretary of State Dean Rusk

Dear Mr. Blumenfeld:
A copy of the issued over YOur Signature,
of the formation of your group has been passed along to
the undersigned and has been noted with much interest.
It occurs to me that,in connection with the undertaking
described in your announcement, you or some of your
associates may possibly find something of interest to
you in an article that appeared in the October 14 issue
of the Baltimore Sun. I attach herewith tear sheets con
taining that article. I refer to the item beginning on
page 28 under the headlines "Missionary From Baltimore
Lashes U.N. Katanga Policy".
I don't know for a certainty but I am assuming that this
article probably appeared only in the SUn and that it
might not come to your attention unless somebody under
took to send you a copy of it.
If the enclosure proves of any interest, you are more
than welcome to it. If not, please excuse me for
bothering you with it.
Very truly yours,

Dear ItFriends
ll
:
Our group has followed the events in the Congo with
shocl'!:, anger, and disgust. The actions of the United
Nations there have en fully destructive in their
twisted irony. And this country it seems that the
only voice in washington to speak out against this
travesty has been that of Senator Tnomas J. Dodd.
We have been concerned during the past dozen or so
months about the Congo situation, but we have not
It'.nmm what 1'18 could do. It is very heartening to us
all that the AMERICAN FRIENDS OF KATANGA has been
formed.
Please send us information about your group and let
us know in what way we can help.
Long live Katangal

Dear Sirs:
I notice your advertisement in the classified
section of National Review for 2 December.
Would you please put me on your mailing list?
Enclosed is a letter which was printed in the Alton Evening
Telegraph yesterday, 1 December.
It so happens that I have quite a number of outside
speaking engagements, and can use good materials.
A matter which quite interests me, and on which I
am anxious to get further documentation is contained in an
article in La Nation Francaise of 1 November 1961. This
article, by-Prof. Marcel ae Corte and entitled "Une entreprise
am6ricaine," says that the brother of the late Dag Hammerskjoeld
is administrator of one of the largest copper companies in the
world, which stands to benefit if Katanga falls and the Leopold
ville government should annul the franchise of the Union
Then the article goes on to say that Mr. Adlai Stevenson, before
becoming US delegate to the United Nations, was president of the
Tempelsman company which deals in diamonds. According
to the article, the Tempelsman people are making arrangements to
purchase the entire diamond production of the Congo from the
Leopoldville government.
For reasons which you can appreciate, I do not feel
that I should use this information in my lectures to stUdents or
otherwise without having some documentation providing solid proof
of its accuracy. I wonder, therefore, if your office can throw
any light on this subject?

Dear Protessor Glasers
We wish to thank you for your letter ot 1st December whioh oontained
a clipping of a letter which you had written to the Alton Evening
Telegraph. We certainly are in accord with your sentiments a8 ex
pressed in that letter.
We have received information about the alleged ot the
late Mr. Hammarskjold's brother and Mr. Stevenson in certain busi
ness transactions similar to the indications oontained in your let
ter. Unfortunately our information so tar i8 also .trom secondary
sources! although we are attempting to make Lnquirles about the
matter n certain quarters.
If we are able to turn up anything more substantial, we shall oom
municate w'ith you. If this information 1s. in tact., accurate. it
1uight be a potent weapon on our side. In 1Jhis connectIon, you might
write to Mr. A. J. Dens, Post Ortice Box NQ 1443. Harlingen.
who also seems interested in this problem_ Whether he ha$ any more
information than you d.o

we cannot saY'- Mr. Dens MS not identified
himself fully to us, but we assume trom his handwriting and trom
the faulty English 01' his letter, that he is 01' European, perhaps
Belgian, origin. I am sorry that we cannot otter you more help
than this just now. We are having a territicJ struggle to get
our organization oft the ground, and so far have not turned up any'
results in this interesting facet ot our work. We hope that, should
you find anything definite, YOl.1 will let us mow-.

Dear Prof. Glaser:
Thank you for your letter of December 1 and the clipping.
I am aware of the two stories concerning Hammerskjoeld t s
b.,.ther and Stevenson's connection with the Tempelsman firm. However
only know of through secondar;y sources, ani so cannot provide
you with any more assurance of authenticity than you have al
ready. The Stevenson story seems to have had its mci8i.rirst
appearance in print in a jelgian publication. Mm:w'X Zuutidll I read.
the article and was somewhat suspicious of the passages '1w iiJM:gXD: quotedfrom.
a brochure in English supposedly put out by the Tempelsman firm.
The did not seem fluent.axBKgRx
Somehow I do not feel that either story provides a
explanation or the behind Messrs. Hammerskjoeld and Stevenson's
actions in the UN. After all, even if the Tempelsman ftrm or :iitaI It one of the
nlargest copper cmmpanies in the world
h
were able. to obtain
franchises in a Cango-governed Katanga, iSKKXMti they would scarcely

Dear Sir.
President Moise '1'ahaibe of Katanga is being barred from entry
int.o the United States b,. our State Department. This arb! trar;y act.
on the part of' the Adminls tration is at. once a slap in the :face at
&. great African leader who in eTerT way baa tried to be our f'rierdJ
it. is also an affront to the American citizens who imited hill to
thls countr,r.
While we have allowed Khrushchev" Kadar, Castro, Robert Holden
and Messrs. Chanderli and Tazid -- all Communist dictatora or terror
ists - entr;r to. our cOllntrT, we dell7 entry to a prQ-Western leader
who shares our basic ideals, ani we humiliate him before his people.
The people of' Katang&, who prOV'ideci WI with the materials necessar,r
to bu.ildthe atomic b01Rb ani there:fore enabled us to save mall7 A.merican
lives, vill not easily :forget this insult to their President.
As American citizens, we deJJaJXl that the State Department place
no obstacle in the wayof' Pres. Tshombe's entr;r to the United states.
We call upon 70U as a representative of' the voter to brine the
necessary pressure upon the Administration to cease and desist in
their attellpta to prevent the American people froa hearing what Pres.
Tsho1llbe bas to say.
The cause at our countr,r will not be served by this undemocratic
action, 80 bue aM unworth;r ,of' our traditions.
Sincerely ,ours,
Samuel L. Blumenfeld
