Dist. Judge Alexander Holtz'off said the case probably would go to the jury after the closing'statements by at- torneys. The party is charged with failing to register with the Justice Department as an agent of-the Soviet Union. Justice Department and .attorneys for the party acknowledged the facts'of the case-developed in brief testimony.last week in U.S: District Court. The jury will 'decide what the, facts mean whether the party actually fulfilled the requirements of the law. Bef ore. recessing'last Thursday, Holtzoff denied a mo- tion by defense attorneys John-J. Abt and Joseph Forer for a directed acquittal. The jury, was absent while'Abt and Forer argued their motion, but Holtzoff said he had no objection to the points being raised again by the at- -in their .closing statement. Abt and' Forer based tHeir mo- tion 'on these, points: 1.'Registration forms of the Sub- versive Activities Control -Act sometimes known as the.McCar- ran .'required only the name and -address of: the' pat- ty. They said this was 'supplied in a letter to.the Justice Depart- ment on Nov. .10, .1961. 2. All other information, includ- ing a statement that the.party is registering as a Communist-action organization (that'is, an agent, of the Soviet might tend to incriminate the party and its-lead- ers.
