The CATHOLIC NORTHWEST PROGRESS Pae Fifty-Fir 9 e e e .J e term a qutrter-million-doUar defense fund to place ads in papers, to publish pam.- phlets, to buy radio time. They know that today it is a fight to the finish and that their backs will soon be to the wall. Strength of the Party They have been conductLng an active membership campaign, as the leadership is concerned over the manner in which membership has slipped. The numerical strength of the party's enrolled membership is insignificant. But it is well known that there at# many actual members who because of their po- sition are not carried on party rolls. %Vhat is important is the claim of the Communists themselves that for every party member there are ten others ready, willing, and able to do the Party's work. Herein lies the greatest menace of come munism. For these are the people wlo infiltrate and corrupt various spheres of American life. So rather than the size of tim Communist Party, the way to weigh its true importance is by testing its influence, its ability to infiltrate. The size of the party is relatively un- important because of the enthusiasm and ironclad discipline under which they oper- ate.

Communists overthrew the Russxan Gov- ernment, there was one Communist for every 2.277 persona in Russia. In the United States today there is one Com- munist for every 1,814 persons in the country. How to Know a Communist One who accepts the aims, principles and program of the Party, who attends meetings, who reads the party press and literature, who pays' dues and who is active in behalf of the party shall be considered a member. The open avowed Communist who carries a card and pays dues is no different from a security stand- point than the person who does the par- ty's work but pay no dues, carries no card, and is not on tim party rolls. In fact, the latter is a greater menace be- cause of his opportunity to work in stealth. The burden of proof should be placed upon those who consistently follow the ever-changing, twisting party line. Fel- low travellers and sympathizers can deny party membership, but they can never escape the undeniable fact that they have played into the Communist hands thus furthering the Communist cause by play- ing the role of innocent, gullible, or wilful allies. Propaganda Activities The Communists developed one of the greatest propaganda machines the world has ever known. They have been able to penetrate and infiltrate many respectable and reputable public-opinion mediums. They capitalized upon ll-founded charg- es associating known honest progressive liberals with left-wing causes. I have al- ways entertained the view that there are few appellations more degrading than Communist, and hence it should be re- served for those justly deserving the de- gradation. The Communist propaganda technique is de, signed to promote emotional response with the hope that the victim will be at- tracted by what he is told the Communist way of life holda in store for him The cbjective, of course, is to develop discon- tent and hasten the day When the Com- munists ca gather sufficient support and following to overthrow the American way of life. ConimUnist propaganda is always slant- ed in 'the hope that the Communist may be aligned with liberal progressive, causes. The honest liberal and progressive should be alert to this, and I believe the Com- munists' most +effective foes caa'Se the real liberals and progressives who urder- stand their devious machinations.
