"Dr. Albert E. Burke brings to the Connecticut and Massachusetts television audience the little-known facts behind the well-known headlines. Through the eyes and ears of this scholar, the true significance of developments around the world is presented in a weekly analysis which, the station says, has evoked tremendous public response."--1958 Peabody Digest. Burke uses the story of Pima Indian Ira Hayes, one of the six marines to raise the U.S. flag on Iwo Jima in WWII, to illustrate the U.S. government's treatment of Native Americans. He refers to an NBC program, "The American stranger," which had recently provoked widespread public outrage, and to a defensive response issued by the Department of the Interior. Burke says the program was accurate and cites examples of treaty-breaking on the part of the government, and of lawbreaking on the part of wealthy whites, whom he compares to the fictitious greedy rancher Elder Conklin, a character in a Frank Harris short story by the same name. He gives examples of Native American contributions to farming and medicine and says that Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson were inspired by the governmental structures of the Five United Indian Nations. Includes footage of the raising of the U.S. flag on Iwo Jima, the Pima reservation, and Coolidge Dam

Burke states that the Mafia and other crime syndicates have influence over public officials, courts and the police in various parts of the country, including Buffalo, N.Y., New Orleans, and Phoenix City. This influence subverts the American economy and undermines democracy. Includes footage of a treasury department raid on a Boston shoe store which was used as a front for gambling, corrupt courts, and gang members who are prosperous and respected in their communities
