Transcript ation for Social Action, The Protestant (magazine"), and the American Jewish Labor Council. 8. All Communist fronts are expected to serve as instruments of Communist espionage seeking out information and passing it through proper channels and serving as an occupational cover for espionage agents while their premises serve as convenient mail drops. 9. Communist operatives on the payrolls of the various Communist fronts are given a livelihood and valuable organizing experience at the expense of sources outside of the Communist Party. Thus the International Workers Order with assets of over $1 million employed Party stenographers, clerks, organizers, speakers, writers, teachers, janitors, and others in connection with its two thousand lodges. 10. Certain Communist fronts are organized for the purpose of promulgating Communist ideas and misinformation into the bloodstream of public opinion. Examples of such organizations are the Allied Labor News Service, Federated Press, and the Labor Research Association. 11. Schools under patriotic and benevolent titles indoctrinate Communists and outsiders in the theory and practice of communism, train organizers and operatives, recruit new Party members and sympathizers. These are no ordinary schools seeking mere culture or academic degrees. Such schools, whether open or secret, are operated by Communist Parties throughout the world under the supreme direction of Moscow under a common pattern. Schools of this type have been: Abraham Lincoln School, Chicago Jefferson School of Social Science, New York California Labor School, San Francisco Samuel Adams School, Boston Seattle Labor School, Seattle In Canada such Communist indoctrination was conducted chiefly by study groups whose operation i.s described by Canadian Royal Commission in its report of June 27, 1946: A further objective, pursued through the study group, is gradually to inculcate in the seen t membership of the Communist Party a habit of complete obedience to the dictates of senior members and officials of tlie Party hierarchy. This is apparently accomplished through a constant emphasis, in the indoctrination courses, on the importance of organization as such, and by the gradual creation, in the mind of the new adherent or sympathizer, of an over-riding moral sense of "loyalty to the Party." ° ° ' The indoctrination courses in tlie study groups are apparently calculated not only to inculcate a high degree of "loyalty to the Party" and "obedience to the Party." but to instill in the mind of the adherent the view that loyalty and obedience to the leadership of organization takes precedence over his loyalty to Canada, entitles him to disregard his oaths of allegiance and secrecy, and thus destroys his integrity as a citizen (pp. 74, 75). 12. Communist fronts change in accordance with the current Party line. Thus when the Party line w as stridently anti-United States in the early 19.30's, the Communists launched the American League Against War and fascism. In the face of the growing menace of Adolf Hitler in the late 1930's, thev projected the American League for Peace and Democracy advocating collective security with the democracies against fascism. During the Stalin-Hitler Pact (1939-41), however, they created the American Peace Mobilization which picketed the White House against lend-lease and the defense program. After Hitler attacked the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941, and Russia became an Page 52 icat Michigan School of Social Science, Detroit Ohio School of Social Sciences, Cleveland Philadelphia School of Social Science and Art School of Jewish Studies, New- York ally, tin's organization was transformed into the Americi People's Mobilization which supported the war effort Immediately alter World War II. the line changed again and fronts immediately blossomed out against the Amen] can defense program and against our foreign policy, sucl as the National Committee to Win the Peace, the American Peace Crusade, and similar organizations. 13. Front organizations enable the Communist Parr) to mobilize what appears to be a body of public opinio! outside of the Party in support of their campaigns, projects legislation, or demands. In many cases the statement ol such an organization is printed bv the press without investigation. The names of leading sponsors command attention. These organizations claim to speak in the name d great masses of Americans whom they do not actually rep resent. Since one front organization will support anothet they manage to pyramid their membership claims to fair tastic proportions. 14. Front organizations serve as a valuable recruitin ground for new Party members and supporters. 15. Certain fronts are formed to provoke racial friction such as the United Negro and Allied Veterans of America Council on African Affairs, National Negro Labor Council and others. Benjamin Citlow, former Communist Party candidal' for Vice President of the United States, former member o its politbureau, and a former member of the Executrv" Committee of the Communist Internationa], has explain! how a front organization is formed: A front organization is organized by tbe Communist Party in the following fashions: First, a number of sympathizers who are close to the Party and whom the Party knows can be depended upon to cany out Party orders, arc gotten together and formed into a inn lens which issues a call for the organization of a particular front organization which th, Party wants to establish. And generally after that is done a program is drawn up by the Party, which this provisional committee adopts. Then, on the basis of this provisional program, all kinds of individuals arc canvassed to become sponsors of the organization, which is to be launched in the verv near future. A provisional secretary is appointed before the organization 's launched and in , verv instance in our day the secretary who was appointed was a member of the Communist Partv. ° ° And as president of the organization we would put up sonic prominent public figure who was willing to accept the presidency of the organization, generally making sure that, if that public figure was one who would not go along with the Com* munists, he was of such a type that he would be too busy to pa) attention to the affairs of the organization. ° ° ° Oi, the committee that would be drawn together, a sufficient i,umber of Communists and Ci liun'st Partv simp.i' thizcrs, who would carry out Partv orders, was included, .nil' out ol this number a small executive committee vvas organized 000 which carried on the affairs ol the organization. SO* called, and this small executive committee, with the secretarYi really ran the organization. And this small committee and the secretary arc the Instruments of the Communist Party, will1 the result that when manifestos or decisions on campaign- are made, those campaigns arc ordered by the Communis* Partv (hearing of the Special C uittce on Un-Americftfl Activities. Mil. 7, pi). 4716, 1717, 471S). Various American fronts are each affiliated with a P. cut international front from which thev- receive directs I literature and other aid and to which they give unresetj and active support.
