    Note to Myself - 20 January 1963

    A man from Manhattan Beach telephoned to say that at the School Board meeting a woman had said in public that I was a Communist. She was objecting to my books and also Norman Cousins' books. He said that he had got up and told her that she should be careful what she said. He said that he would send me a clipping from the newspaper.
