The 49 Questions: How would you reply to these statements or questions if your job was to talk to people at a public demonstration or discussion?

[Exeter, NH: Philips Exeter Academy Student Peace Group, N.D. but ca.1962]. A curious list of questions designed to prepare demonstrators or debaters for issues they might be challenged with in a public forum. The sheets are undated, but appear to be compiled around the time of the Cuban Missle Crisis. No imprint, but the preliminary sheet bears the rubber stamp of the Philips Exeter Academy Student Peace Group; it is unclear whether the questions were compiled by the Academy or merely used by them. The questions range from the obvious ("Why are you all here?") to questions of a more provocative nature ("What are you, a bunch of commies?, "Why don't you go back to Russia?," and "What would you do if Russia attacks? Remember Pearl Harbor"). No copies located in OCLC. Two mimeographed sheets, printed in black on goldenrod stock and stapled at upper left corner; 21.5cm X 28cm (8.5" X 11"); [2pp]. Horizontal fold at center, with minor wear and a few tiny creases to extremities; Very Good+.
