Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - March 17, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
These Days by George e. Sokolsky Hoover writes a Book j. Edgar Hoover director of the Fri has professionally and with enormous resources at his command. Become Tho leading authority in the United states on communist activities in this country. John b Oakes an editor of the Nevi York times has no similar distinction in this particular held Hoover wrote a Book Quot masters of deceit Quot but Oakes in the text of his Book review does not use the title that Hoover gave this Book lie prefers a sub title the Reader must look Back to an introductory paragraph to see what he is really writing about i can imagine among communists sex communists or anti communists plenty of competent men to be engaged for such a review Job just As Quot the new York times Book review often engages specialists in Many Fields. To mention one in each category Etui Browder. Whittaker Chambers a u g e n e Lyons. So this is How Oakes starts the review a the thesis on which j Edgar Hoover bases this informal studs of american communists and american communism is that the communist party within the United suites is a Clear and present danger to us today. It is a View that not All of his 170 million anti comm most. Fellow americans will readily accept. Quot in m. Pleasant news Cloudy Uard satellite Iii orbit by Carrier 30# per week by mall 7aq Pef Jim i wonder How Oakes can Possich know w hat 170.000,000 Amel leans accept. But apart from that of what importance is such a stau ment. Except to belittle j Edgar Hoover for after All. Ii Hoover thought that everybody knew As much about this subject to which he has devoted so much it his life As he did there would be no need to write another Book what Hoover has done in this volume is to summarize All tire information available to him All the experience which has been his and his agents since 1917. Let me quote John b. Oakes a Little further there is at times a naive and at times a slightly dated Quality to the contents of or hoovers Book which As he himself says. Is written in almost primer form it is dated because american communism is dated with no longer any strength or influence with no a front organizations of any Power with no toe hold in government in labor in the press in any significant areas of american Hoover answers this question in the foreword to the Book Quot today As i write these words my conclusions of 1919 remain the same. Communism is the major menace of our time today it threatens the very existence of our Western what Oakes does Ai his Book review is not to discuss the material in j. Edgar hoovers volume As much As to write his own private polemic to establish that the communist party has withered on the Vine in the United states. To establish his thesis he cites the loss of membership but says nothing about the party apparatus going underground he cites the death of the a daily worker Quot but says nothing of the party quarrel Between the Kremlin it is and the stalinist and How the Kremli nites won the Day by closing Down the a daily workers and thereby throwing the stalinist out of jobs and the party.
