A running radio broadcast of the Case To Deport Alien Appealed To High Court Decision May Effect Status Of CIO Leader WASHINGTON. Sept. 7.-W- The government appealed to the su- preme court today a deportation case which may affect the status ot Harry west coast C. I. O. leader, against whom deportation proceedings are pending. Solicitor General Robert H. Jack- son and Gerard P. Rellly, labor de- partment solicitor, asked the court to decide In the case of Joseph O. Strecker ol Hot Springs, Ark., whether an alien member of the communist party Is subject to dep- ortation under a 1918 statute. This statute provides deportation for alien members of organizations which advocate the overthrow of the government 'oy force. The fifth circuit court recently reversed a deportation order against Strecker, granted by a federal dis- trict court. Pending final dlsrwsl tlon of the case, the libor depart ment has been deferring further action against Bridges. PETITION Strecker came to this country from Austria in In 1W3 he filed a naturalization petition, Be- fore this proceeding was completed, however, he was arrested and or- dered deported. He had Joined the communist party in November, but stopped paying hlj in February 1933. Judge Hutcheson, who wrote the :lrcult court opinion, said "it seems to me to be kind of Pecksntfflan righteousness x x i to assume and find that merely because Strtcker Joined the communist party of America, he is an advocate of, or belongs to, s party which adtocatea the overthrow by force and violence of Uie States." The government's petition as- serted that the fifth circuit court believed there was no evidence that the communist party advocated the overthrow of the government by force, but that "other courts have sustained orders tor deportation on records containing essentially simi- lar evidence." "The lack of uniformity among the circuits." said the petition, "will, unless resolved, create a situation both of unfairness (o aliens and of confusion in (he administration of the law."
