Evansville Resident Opposes Bayh's Blockade Support

Document Viewer

In response to Senator Bayh's proposal of a blockade of ships at American ports who engage in trade with North Vietnam, a resident of Evansville, Indiana expressed his disapproval in a letter. Plainly, he writes, "Surely, you realize our so-called blockades of various countries that are in current disfavor have never done significant harm to the stability of their governments. Castro is stronger than ever, Mao stronger than ever, North Korea no weaker, and even Albania's government seems to be in no danger."
