Justice N. B. Johnson
State Capitol Box 2101
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Dear Judge Johnson:

The inclosed copy of my letter to Bob Bennett contains my criticisms and suggestions of Bob's proposed program. I suggest that Roger Baldwin be invited to be one of the main speakers because we are going to need the continued support of the Robert Marshall Civil Liberties Trust and I believe that this is one way to get an increase in the amount granted to us. At least Roger Baldwin is enormously interested in the organization and told me at Fisk that he thought we were doing a magnificent job. If he sees us working together in conference, I am sure that his interest will be increased. 

I am inclosing a draft of letter which I suggest you send to Roger Baldwin. If you agree that he should be invited to speak will you send this letter or one similar to it right away?

Sincerely yours,

Ruth M. Bronson
Executive Secretary
