Transcript —— Looking Ahead With the American Legion "Marching orders" for the coming year issued at the recent National Convention of the American Legion assure a continuation of that organization s strong anti-Communist position. Interviewed on Reporters' Roundup, the newly-elected National Commander of the American Legion, The Honorable W. C. (Dan) Daniel, pledges full support to the convention's mandates. P, The Honorable W. C. (Dan) Daniel, newly-elected National Commander of the American Legion, interviewed by a panel of veteran newsmen on a recent Reporters' Roundup program, reiterated the dedication of liis administration to the elimination of subversive elements which are attempting to destroy America's freedom, a dedication voiced in his acceptance speech. Commander Daniel is an executive of the Dan River Textile Mills in his home town of Danville, Virginia. Having held numerous Legion posts on local, state, ancl national levels, Mr. Daniel xvas in 1952 chosen National Vice-Commander of the American Legion. Having been a member of this organization for twelve years, Mr. Daniel has been mentioned at the past three national conventions as a nominee for National Commander. During the interview epiestions were fired at Mr. Daniel by a panel of reporters made it]) eif Mr. L. Edgar Prina. Washington Evening Star, ancl Mr. Jim Lucas, Scripps-Howard news- Page 16 papers, under the moderation of Mr. Robert F. Hurleigh, director of Washington operations of the Mutual Broadcasting .System. "Can you tell us, Commander Daniel," asked Mr. Prina, "just what you propose doing about the elimination of subversion mentioned in your acceptance speech?" "It's no secret, of course, that our government ancl other institutions have been infiltrated from time to time by subversive elements," Mr. Daniel replied. "The present line of the Communist Party, of course, is peaceful competitive coexistence. This line, of course, is being put forth by the Communists in an effort to lull the American people into a sense nl false security, and it would be our purpose to go after those elements, wherever they appear, with every medium at our command." "Well, for instance-, taking the recent Supreme Court decision, which in effect limited the government's employee-security program to sensitive jobs," inquired Mr. Prina, "do you think that that decision weakened Ot Strengthened our internal security? Mr. Daniel's opinion was that tlus decision had unquestionably weakened the national security. The Legion, he felt, would first ask what constitutes a "sensitive" job. "So far as we are concerned,' "e explained, "all government jobs are sensitive jobs." "Mr. Daniel, I think the Legion DBS called for a congressional investigation of the Fund for the Republic, hasn't it?" asked Mr. Lucas. "What d<> you feel could be accomplished W such an investigation?" "Well, Mr. Lucas, we look upon t,u' Fund for the Republic as an anti-anti" Communist organization," replied M-'' Daniel. "We've never accused U* Fund for the Republic of being *| Communist organization, or even ° being dominated by Communists. "" xve- elo feel that they are an anti-ant**- Communist organization. In otlH words, it seems that their purpose • to be against those who are again" communism." Facts Forum News, December, 195"
