Description
With the two major elections - presidential and parliamentary only few months away, Communist dictators in north Korea are deliberately trying to capitalize on the occasion in their scheme to infiltrate armed agents and terrorists into the Republic of Korea. In order to crush the malicious scheme of aggression of the north Korean Communists, through imbuing the minds of the entire people with a burning spirit of anti-Communism, the month of March has been designated as the month for "Promotion of Anti-Espionage and Victory over Communism."

A series of colorful events will be held under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and Information on a national scale. The wicked rulers of the Communist north, who launched an all-out invasion of south Korea on June 25, 1950, have been incessantly looking for an occasion to reinvade this republic as ever before since the signing of the Armistice Agreement in 1953. They have employed all sorts of barbarous acts such as slaughter, looting and incendiarism to intimidate the innocent people of this republic. What is more, they also have been attempting desperately, by means of sending a large number of espionage agents into the south, to detect information on the military, political and economic aspects of our country, at the same time plotting to circulate false rumors and to foment feelings of distrust and hatred among the people, the military and government officials.

Therefore, the entire people of this republic must be on the alert and prepared to meet any eventualities caused by the north Korean Communists not only during this campain period but also all year round. Further efforts should also be made to locate and root out Communist espionage agents once and for all. When ever an espionage agent is found, we should either report to the pertinent authorities without delay or persuade him to surrender himself to the police.

The Ministry of Communications issues a commemorative postage stamp on this occasion in the hope that all the people will further exert themselves to strengthen our national defense capabilities and to expedite economic construction, at the same time participating positively in the ever-existing front of anti-Communist warfare.
