Included is a tally for President Kennedy versus Krushchev, Castro and the peace movement, grading Kennedy a scorn-filled A for his role in bringing the world closer to war. A several page account of peace rallies and demonstrations is provided, with quotes from various speakers, including Bayard Rustin and Dagmar Wilson. Statements from various organizations regarding the crisis are printed, as well as reports from England, Poland and Czechoslovakia. Most work attributed to Myrtle Lane or Marjory Collins, with one by Virginia Colter and others. The Peace Concern was a newsletter devoted to promoting peace and seeking an active participation in the peace movement, founded by Myrtle Lane and Marjory Collins.
