The' or- ders called for action on two fronts: (1) An effort to infiltrate the labor unions; (2) to infiltrate the so-called in- tellectual and creative fields. In movie circles, Communists devel- oped an effective defense a few years ago in meeting criticism. They would counter with the question, "After all, what is the matter with Communism?" It was effective because many persons (lid not possess adequate knowledge of the subject to give an intelligent answer. Some producers and studio heads real- ized the possibility that the entire in- dustry faced serious embarrassment be- cause it could become a springboard for Communist activities. Communist activ- ity in Hollywood is effective and is fur- thered by Communists and sympathizers using the prestige of prominent persons to serve, often unwittingly, the Commun- ist cause. The party is content and highly pleased if it is possible to have inserted in a picture a line, a scene, a sequence, con- veying the Communist lesson, and more particularlY , if they can keep out anti- Communist lessons. Infiltration The Communist tactic of infiltrating la- bor unions stems from the earliest teach- ings of Marx, which have been reitc:'ated by party spokesmen down through the years. They resort to all means to gain their point and often succeed in penetrat- ing and literally taking over labor unions before the rank and file of members are aware of what has occurred. I am convinced that the great masses of union men and women are patrioti American citizens interested chiefly in security for their families and themselves They have no use for the American Com- munists, but in those instances where Communists have taken control of unions, it has been because too many union men and women have been out- waited by Communists. The Communists have never relied on numerical strength to dominate a labor organization. Through infiltration tac- tics they have in too many instances cap: lured positions of authority. Communists have boasted that with 5 per cent of the membership, the Communists, with their militancy, superior organizational ability and discipline, could control the union. They regard as political every move- ment bf the working class which seeks to gain concessions by exerting pressure from without. That the Communists feel themselves ordained for a special mission in pene- trating labor is .revealed by the state- ment made by Eugene Dennis, general secretary of the Communist Party of the United States of America, at a recent party meeting: "No trade-union or peo- ple's organization," he said, "not even the great CIO, could long remain pro- gressive if it were to exclude or to attack Communists." - Government The Canadian spy trials revealed-the necessity of alertness in keeping Com- munists and sympathizers out of Gov- ernment services. In fact, the high com- mand of the Communist Party regards such assignments of sufficient import- ance to demand that party members not contact fellow members in the Govern- ment and if such Government employees are carrted on Party rolls at all, they are assigned an alias. Last fall a high-rank- ing laY leader instructed that all party membership cards of Government em- ployees be destroyed and that party or- ganizational meetings in Government - circles be discontinued although informal social or union gatherings which could not be identified as Communist meetings could be continued. The dangers of per- mitting Communists or sympathizers to work in Government circles are too ob-" vious to mention. There has developed, however, as a result of Communist propaganda, some lanciful feeling among Communists that no distinction should be drawn and the Communists.have a right to Government Jobs.
