    Nature of the Enemy: Suppression of Thought.
    Nature of the Enemy: Suppression of Thought.

At the opening ceremonies, hosted by Raymond Graham Swing, and broadcast over the NBC Blue Network, each tableaux representing, as Elmer Davis put it, methods of political control, was accorded explanation by a celebrated speaker.  French citizen Eve Curie -- daughter of Maria Sklodowska-Curie, Polish Nobel Laureate in physics and chemistry -- an active opponent of Vichy France, began her remarks on "Suppression of Thought" by quoting from the 1789 French Declaration of the Rights of Man: "The free intercourse of thoughts and opinions is one of the most precious Rights of Man.  Any citizen may therefore freely speak, write, or put words in print" -- an ideal anathema to the Nazis.
