The 1941 this provision could not apply to their unceasing efforts to undermine and destroy the United States Constitution. How can William Z. Foster, or the parry he heads, be trusted to defend the United States Constitution when he frankly states in his 23 Questions that "tlie Stalin Constitution of the USSR is far and away the most democratic in the world"? Nowhere in the world has communism, or "socialism," •is ihe Communists sometimes call it. been established by the freely expressed will of the majority. This has been true from the time of the Russian Revolution in 1917 to the satellite countries of the present day. In every ease these actions have been applauded by the CPUSA.

The fact is that these conventions can be „_, held only with Moscow's permission in accordance with '" S\'>S, -.a"1'" to'lslitntion of the Communist International, a proce- „m5", JJBre still in force.

It did not say that it has not affiliated. The statement acknowledged, however, that "tlie establishment of an Information Bureau by nine Communist Parties of Europe is of great significance." It is in this light that the state- meni in the preamble declaring that "the Communist Party holds as a basic principle that there is an identity of interest which serves as a common bond uniting the workers ol all lands" should be judged. To mislead those who interpret this document literally, the preamble adds the assur- rance that the Party "recognizes further that the true national interests of our country ° ° ° require the solidarity of all freedom-loving peoples and the continued and ever- closer cooperation of the United Nations" in order to give the impression that the IN and not the Cominform represents that international "common bond." The fact is that there have been convincing proofs of the CPUSA's actual affiliation with the Cominform as demonstrated by— 1. Complete adherence to and endorsement of Cominform policy. 2. Printing of Cominform directives in official organs of the CPUSA, such as the monthly Political Affairs. 3. Printing of CPUSA statements of policy and reports on activity in the official Cominform organ For a Fasting Peace. For a People's Democracy. 4.
