The CATHOLIC NORTHWEST PROGRESS Page Fifty-Seven ganization advocating the overthrow of the Government of the United States. For the purposes of investigation the Attorney General has ruled that a num- ber of organizations in addition to the Co,nmuntst Party are subversive under the Hatch Act because of Communist influence. One hundred and one Federal employ- ees were discharged as a result of our investigation, 21 resigned during the in- vestigation, and in, 75 cases administra- tive action was taken by the depart- ments. A total of 1,906 individuals are no longer employed in the government while 122 cases are presently pending consideration in the various Government agencies. The FBI does not make recommenda- tions; it merely reports facts and it is up to the interested Government depart-' meat to make a decision. Almost in- variably, of coarse, subjects if investi- gations deny affiliation with subversive groups, often despite strong evidence to the contrary. National Defense The Communist Party of the United States is a fifth column if there ever was one. It is far better organized than TACOMA M.E RP00Y XMAS C. V. FAWCETT Mayor City of Tacoma C. A.

They are seeking to weaken America Just as they did in their era of obstrue. tlon when they were aligned with the Nazis. Their goal is the overthrow of our Government. There is no doubt as to where a real Communist's loyalty rests. Their alleg- iance is to Russia, not the United States. A top functionary of the Communist party recently said: "A war by the United States against the U.S.S.R. would be an unjust war, which is why it must be fought against, but that if it should come the Communist Party in the United States would be with Russia. and make no mistake about that." In another section of the country an- other Communist leader made the fol- lowing statement: "I believe that every- one should know that we are for Russia and if need be we will die for the cause. I don't mean that war with Russia is coming soon; I hope not, so that Russia will be better prepared." What To Do What can we do ? And what should be our course of action? The best antidote to Communism is vigorous, intelligent, old-fashioned Americanism with eternal vigilance• I do not favor any course of action which would give the Commun- Ists cause to portray themselves as martyrs. I do favor unrelenting prose- cution wherever they are found to be violating our country's laws. As Ameri- cans, our most effective defense is a workable democracy that guarantees and • preserves our cherished freedoms. I would have no fears if more Ameri- cans'possessed the zeal,' the fervor, the persistence and the industry to learn about this menace of Red fascism. I do fear for the liberal and progressive who has been hoodwinked and duped into Joining hands with the Communists. I confess to a real apprehension so long as Communists are able to secure min- isters of the gospel to promote their evil work and espouse a cause that is alien to the religion of Christ and Judaism• I do fear so long as school boards and parents tolerate conditions whereby Com- munists and fellow travelers under the guise of academic freedom can teach our youth a way of life that eventually will destroy the sanctity of the home, that undermines faith in God, that causes them to scorn respect for constituted authority and sabotage our revered Con- stitution. I do fear sO long as American labor groups are infiltrated, dominated, or sat- urated with the virus of Communism. I do' fear the palliation and weasel-worded gestures against Communism indulged in by some of our labor leaders who should know better but who have become pawns in the hands of sinister but astute mani- pulations for the Communist cause. I fear for ignorance on the part of all our people who may take the poisonous pills of Communist propoganda. I am deeply concerned whenever I think of the words of an old-time Communist. Disillusioned, disgusted and frightened, he came to us with his story and con- cluded: "God help America br any other country if the Communist Party ever gets strong enough to control labor and poli- tics. God help us all." The Communists hBve been, still are, and always will be a menace to freedom, to democratic ideals, to the worship of God and to America's way of life. I feel that once public opinion is thoroughly aroused as it is today, the fight against Communism is well on its way. Victory will be assured once Com- munists are identified and exposed, be- cause the public will take the first step of quarantining them so they can do on harm. Communism, in reality, is not a politi- cal party. It is a way of life--an evil and malignant way of life. It reveals a con- dition akin to disease that spreads like an epidemic and like an epidemic a quarantine is necessary to keep it from infesting the nation. CARDINAL NEWMAN'S PRAYER May God protect us all the day long. till the shades lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done! Then in His mercy may He give uaa safe lodging and a holy rest, and peace at last. TACOMA CHRISTMAS GREETINGS Judge Ernest Card Superior Court, Pierce County Judge Fred G.
