  • Letter from LP to Charles J. Conrad, RE: LP has not yet prepared his analysis of Conrad's April 1964 memorandum on the speech LP gave at Cal Poly. LP writes now, however, to make some comments about it. LP considers Conrad's introduction to exhibit unethical trickery, in that it indirectly insinuates that LP is a communist. LP considers this insinuation to be contemptible. Conrad's statement that many of LP's remarks were "half truths designed to mislead his audience" is untrue. Conrad's statements about the Fifth Pugwash Conference were false. It was held in a school building, not at Mr. Eaton's home. It was not a secret meeting; it was publicized in the news and the report of the Conference was widely published. Conrad misled the recipients of his memorandum by saying that documents on the Pugwash Conference were sent to Nikita Khrushchev, while neglecting to mention that the same material was sent to President Eisenhower. Conrad also mentions that the Soviet Academy of Sciences endorsed and participated in the Conference, but fails to make similar mention of the American Academy of Sciences. Conrad says that he was unable to obtain information on the Conference, but he could have easily done so by writing to the Foreign Secretary of the United States Academy of Sciences. LP finds Conrad's memorandum embarrassing only in that he is ashamed that the Minority Floor Leader of the Assembly of the State of California would have written such a document.
