descriptive note about KEN magazine
Table of Contents page : "Ken - a magazine
of unfamiliar fact and informed opinion, filling in
the shadows cast by coming events all over the world;
equally opposed to the development of dictatorship from
either Left or Right, whose one fixed editorial aim
is to give unhampered and unbiased demonstration of
whatever dangers threaten this our democracy from without
and within, in accord with the Lincolnian dictum of
"Let the people know the truth and this country
is safe." -- Arnold Gingrich, Editor."
