In response to:

The Ordeal of George Patton from the December 31, 1964 issue

To the Editors:

[You] should be most severely censured for [your] lack of discrimination in the permitted use of obscenity—used, as the lowest and most ignorant use it, merely as stupid substitutes for more thoughtful expression…
