Ballots v. Bullets
Re "Battle of the Ballots" in your Aug. 12 issue.
I,agree with Abe Lincoln, whom you quote in this article, that "among freemen there can be no successful appeal from the ballot to the bullet. . . ." But desperate circumstance sometimes requires desperate remedy. All that the G.I.s of Athens, Tenn. wanted was a fair count of their votes. And, more power to them, that is what they got.

Abraham Lincoln's admonition . . . can properly be applied only against those who have lost...
