Notes for Karl Frank Feller:
It's been said that he robbed a bank/credit union and buried the money under a pond that he had dug for his mother, Grandma Marie.
I can remember when Grandpa Horace (brother-in-law) drove the "get-a-way" car and didn't even know what was done in the bank until later.
Karl became a man of power soon after that.From working in a Dayton Brewery to being the Labor Union's President.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia2011
Karl Feller is an American trade unionist. He was president of the Cincinnati local of the International Union of United Brewery, Flour, Cereal, Soft Drink and Distillery Workers.
During his 1959 visit to the United States, Nikita Khrushchev had the following exchange with Feller:
Feller: "Mr. Chairman, I cannot understand, since the Communist Party proclaims itself to be the liberator of the working class, yet we see a mass exodus of workers in other countries following the Communist seizure of power. You have the example of three million workers fleeing from East Germany to West Berlin, and about three million fleeing from North Korea to South Korea and, as mentioned a moment ago, three hundred or so thousands of Hungarians braved arrest and death in escaping to freedom. Mr. Khrushchev, can you tell us of a single instance where, following Communist seizure of power, there has been a mass influx of workers from surrounding non-Communist countries into the Communist country? If the Communist Party is the liberator of the working class, why don't we see this phenomenon?"
Khrushchev: "Is that all? Think it over. Drink your beer. Perhaps that will help you to find the answer to your question."
Feller: "That certainly is no answer, and apparently nothing will make you understand why millions want to escape from Communism-"
Khrushchev: "I've told you, I'm not even afraid of the devil."(1)
Despite his anti-communism, Feller's work landed him on the master list of Nixon political opponents.
