The time has come for RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION

n.p. [1956]. Single page, typescript handbill mimeographed on thin paper, 8.5 x 11 inches, printed on one side.

Anonymous exhortation to California voters to press their assemblymen to support the "senate book bill" (SB 1671). This bill would remove from school libraries any works that did not "impress upon the minds of the pupils the principles of morality, truth, justice, and patriotism." The writer of the handbill describes a meeting in Sacramento on April 27th during which only eight assemblymen in the Assembly Education Committee voted in favor of the bill (eleven votes would be necessary to move it to the floor). "No-one expressed concern that without this bill filthy, immoral and untruthful books would remain available to teenagers backed by prestige of the schools." Lists those who voted as well as those who abstained or didn't show up, with editorial comments in each case, criticizes the American Legion representative for not showing up, asks readers to get their friends to write in and counter the influence of left-wing agitators; if at all possible, show up in person for the next vote on Wednesday, May 18.
