Beware of 'Witch Hunt'
THE "clear and present danger” test under which the
supreme court upheld the convictions of 11 top Ameri-
can ( ommunists has now become a clear and present danger
for'the rest of the Communist party in the United States.
It does not mean, of course, that it is illegal to be a Com-
munist in this country, but it does mean that it is illegal to
teach and advocate overthrow of the government. This has
been pretty clear to all Americans—except the Commies
and their fellow-travelers—for as long as we’ve been in
business as a free nation.
Now another batch of the party’s leaders in the U. S. has
been rounded up by the FIJI for trial on the same conspiracy
charges. And the howling from the "American Kremlin,"
a diab loft building in downtown New York, is loud enough
to be heard in the tiniest Commie cell across the country.
THERE is good reason for the howling, which ought to be
x pleasant music for the rest of us.
For one thing, the FBI’s net this time caught some pretty
important CP characters. Some said they were the “second
string” leaders, groomed to take over while the top 11 went
to jail : others pointed out they were the leading Communist
tacticians in the U. S., the ones who told the little Commies
what to think, and in reality, phantom bosses whose im-
portance was concealed by the so-called top 11.
Whichever description is correct, these were no little fish.
Nobody is going to be foolish enough to forget there are
a lot more fish in the U. S. Communist pond. But little by
little, as the leaders are hauled away, the small-fry will have
no one to guide them and will start hiding under the rocks.
Another reason for all the howling from Red headquar-
ters is financial. It cost the party, as some insiders figure it,
about a million dollars for the losing defense of the 11
leaders now headed for prison. This time there are 21 to

We had never suspected the U. S. Commies of any such

It means that the Reds, having been on the offensive for
a long time, are now on the defensive. There will be Reds
around for a long time more, to be sure, but we are whittling
down their effectiveness. America has recognized the "clear

THE STORY: As soon as I
leai nvd that Carl Metzker was a
Communist courier, I had to flee
for my life. I assumed the Iden-
tity of a Caroline Leigh, whom
Carl had killed, and convinced
Bart Jonathan, her dead husband's
lawyer, that I was her. But Carl
followed me clear to Hollister,
Ind. I barely escaped Carl and

The cold wind, still sharp with
rain-smell, was a blessed relief. I
sucked ill great breaths ol it. If
only I could find a policeman or
the police station!
Behind me. headlights swept on-
to Main Street—from about two
blocks down. Frantically I sought
cover. There wasn't any.
Too far down the station plat-
form. a railroad yardman was busy
getting ready for the 1:09. Across
the track was a grain elevator and
a warehouse or two with loading
docks. But I hey w ould expect me
to hide there.
There was no time for Indecision.
Beyond the depot, tires protested as

my arm. "I'll find you a cop, but
we gotta hurry. The train—"

shed that must have been a
section house. From the dark be-
hind us came a shout, someone
running, and I gasped. “Hurryl
Please hurry!" The man beside
me swore, but he hurried. It was
all I could do to keep up.
His car was parked on a sida
street beyond the railroad yard.
He jumped m from the right,
growled something as I followed,
and started rolling almost as the
motor caught. I was sobbing out-
right. weak from the fright and the
too-many shocks of the night, and
he let me cry.
Away from the depot and with
no signs of pursuit, he leaned over
and turned on his lights.
"Listen, lady the cops—I mean
I took a deep breath. "I haven’t
killed anybody." My voice sounded
wooden. "I—they're trying to kill

sounded skeptical as he said, "Sure

I didn't answer.

“No. I'm not!” I snapped. "I said

stopped. How could I tell him?
Why try? I said, "How far is It to
the ixillce station?"
“Back past the depot."
So that was why the circuitous
route through town.
Another left turn, In silence. I
looked at him, head Jutting angrily
forward, as If he were searching
the darkness beyond the fan of
light from his headlamps.
The car had slowed, but I had
the feeling, suddenly, that all time
was getting away from me.
"What 11 Bart—what If they get
to the police first? I mean—"
‘‘Now lady, look—"
I sat back, properly slapped
down, murmuring. "I'm sorry. I—"

the challenge before and beat it
down. We have learned the need
for unending vigilance. We are

strong because we are free, and

The objects, found in the region
of Hampton, Va., were excavated

the Indians called It, was visited
by John Smith In 1608 and shortly
thereafter was set up as a satellite

the Smithsonian is a green-glazed

WASHINGTON, June 30— t NEA)
• —One angle of the drive
against Inflation may not have
been sufficiently pointed up. It is
the Idea that price control au-
thority which congress was asked
to extend beyond June 30 Is logic-
ally a two-year plan.
This should probably be said
some other way to avoid that hated
word, “plan,” which always seems
to connote socialistic government
Early in 1951, Defense Mobiliza-
tion Director Charles E. Wilson
put forward a three-year plan of
this type for industrial raw mate-
rials. It has been generally ac-
cepted without too much protest
It makes sense.
It Involves principally the allo-
cation of steel, copper, aluminum
and other scarce materials. De-
fense production gets first call on
available supplies. Civilian produc-
tion gets cut back.
In this process some businesses
are naturally going to get hurt.
But the government does not hold
out to these hurt industries the
prospect of only continued short-
ages for the indefinite future. De
fense agencies immediately took
*iteps to increase the supply of
these scarce materials. Steel and
aluminum production were stepped
Washington. "My burning ambi-
tion Is to scoop everybody with a
proposal to write controls off the
books. And that's exactly what
I'm going to do the minute I feel
controls arc no longer necessary."
This was all right as a declara-
tion of intent. It paralleled Mo-
bilizer Wilson's three-year plan
for removing allocation controls
on industrial materials. But It
didn't go far enough.
QN food supplies and most con-
sumer goods, the planning does
not seem to have been so smart.
Or rather, the planning may have
been all right, but the execution
Economic Stabilizer Eric John-
ston. for instance, has made sev-
eral statements that he was ask-
ing for economic controls for a
limited period only. Knowing that
price controls become irksome to
buyers and sellers alike, and soon
lose their effectiveness, Mr. John-
ston has argued that he was ask-
ing business and the public to put
up with these inconveniences dur-
ing the mobilization period alone.
"The critical test will come dur-
ing the next two or three years,"
Mr. Johnston told the Common-
wealth club In San Francisco.
“Time is short and controls must
be made to work as a bulwark
against Inflation until our expand-
ed plant capacity permits produc-
tion to keep pace with demand,
both military and civilian.
"And we can be rid of controls!"
Mr. Johnston told the U. S. cham-
ber of commerce annual meeting in

three-year plan to increase food
production goals so that price con-
trols might be removed by say

tively presented to the congress,

tail trade or the consuming pub-

inflation muffed this point com-

is no telling what will come out
of the votes on the floor and later

the two houses of congress.
A two years' extension would
have left the issue something that
could have been debated in the
1952 campaign. It could then have
been decided by the voters, and
by the 83rd congress which meets
in 1953. But it would have taken
administration and details of con-
trolling prices out of politics. And
it would have fitted price controls
