The Hiss Trial
Your fine story of the Alger Hiss trial [TIME, July 18] ... is a credit to American journalism and presents a completely clear picture of the entire case.
I believe in fairness and in a fair trial, but I do not believe in ignoring facts. How the four jurors who voted against conviction could choose to ignore those three proven facts of the case is much more than I can understand. What did they want before they voted for conviction? . . . Maybe some gremlins from the Kremlin used Hiss's typewriter, without his knowledge, of course.
