danger to the United States from master Red plotters of hidden infiltrators and fellow travelers is as great as ever it is emphasized by the man m thebest posi tion to know J Edgar Hoover the director of the FBI since In opening chapters of his bestseller new book Masters of Deceit Hoover traces the origins of the communist worldwide conspir acy and tells of his early observations of the Communist Party U S A beginning in 1919 when as special assistant to the at torneygeneral he was assigned to prepare a legal brief on the formed Communist Party and Communist Labor Party In preceding instalments of this first serialization of portions the book bringing the story up to today the FBI chief detailed the blueprint drawn up by communists for the conquest of the U S from within and reminded readers of the boast made Americans in June 1957 by the Soviet Communist boss NHcita Khrushchev I can prophesy that your grandchildrenin America will live under socialism and of the repeated forecast of William Z Foster the longtime head of the communist movement in the United States that the communist revolution after the actual seizure of power would deve4op even more swiftly than the Russian The Bolshevik dictatorship was imposed by a very small minority upon Russias many millions of people By J EDGAR HOOVER Director Federal Bureau of Investigation The value of fellow travelers and sympathizers to the Communist Party lies in their apparent noncommu nist affiliation That is why in most instances commu nist leaders do not attempt to recruit them into the Party They are more valuable outside as financialcontributors vocal mouthpieces or cpntacts between Party officials and noncommunists They constitute in fact f rents for and defenders of the communist party role these individuals can play for the communists is clearly illustrated in front organizations where they serve as spon sors or officials Behindthe scenes is a communistjiparipulator Corisider for example one such organization In October 1951 the Daily Worker announced the formation of the Emergency Civil Liberties Committee with 150 founders from 39 including W who were educators clergymen and professionals ONE OF THE COMMITTEES first official moves was to peti tion the New York State commissionerof education to forbid the New York City Board of Education from enforcing its newlyen acted bah on suspected communist teachers Gradually as the old Civil Rights Congress a wellknown front became dis credited the Emergency Civil Liberties Committee took over its work In 1956 the Senate Security Subcommittee a f t e r Identifying the Emergency Civil Liberties Committee stated Pentagon The Weather Bill Is Money Matter Is Deleted IWhen the communist party it self is under fire these fronts of fer a bulwark of protection The names of the groups 150 founders have been exploited by the Party to fight its battles To make a known Party mem ber the president of a front would immediately label it as commu nist But if a sympathizer can be installed especially a man of prominence suchas an educator minister or scientist the group can operate as an independent organization THIS TRICK has worked time after time and is still working today By allowing themselves to be used as tools fellow travelers and sympathizers have immeas urably advanced the communist cause Of vparticular interest to the communists is the influence o fellow travelers and sympathiz ers in the thoughtmolding field teachers script writers newspapermen news analysts If these individuals can be subject eri t the slightest bit of commu nist thought control the Party have won a major victory One individual in New York City for example once occupiec an important role as a news com entator and author His view were consistently procommunist He represented himself as an au thority on international affairs He claimed to have talked per sonally to many of the world leaders JUST AS the communists wouli want everywhere he went h built himself up as an individua who could give the American people guidance in their think ing This commentator was simpl irreplaceable in the communis scheme No open communis could discuss current events be fore lecture audiences behind th microphone or through the wri ten word with this sympathizer degree of objectivity and in dependence He was able to fool many non and exert consider able influence His lecture tours were often arranged by commu nistfront groups A concealed communist contributed money to h i s expenses Wherever this world observer went he reached communistline and roSoviet propaganda When his nfluence slip he then hanged his ways and sought his ivelihood elsewhere MEN AND WOMEN of this cal ber can do much to bring others into the communist thoughtcon rol net No wonder the Party works to support them Another group that falls on oc casion under communist though control consists of opportunists ndividuals whoif they can bene it personally will knowingly sup port the Party in return for sup xrt or favors from it In a large Midwestern city a noncomriiunlst labor leader had aspirations to become presiden of a union council A group o communists opposed to the then president decided that this la bo eader could be controlled They drafted him as a candidate and of course on the election slat ilaced also some
