Since Communist fronts have a way of changing names from time to time and from place to place, no specified "^ can serve as a permanent safeguard to insure their detection. Safety from their machinations can be guaranteed only through ceaseless vigilance and detailed knowl- Wge. We. therefore, present for the guidance of the Amer- 'Ciln people certain criteria which will be useful in spotting a Communist front. 1. Since Communist fronts must start with a working "Ucleus of Party members or reliable sympathizers, and Once the Partv depends lor its continued control of these Organizations upon this nucleus, the presence of certain Dames frequently found as sponsors and officials is often 5 Rood clue. We present herewith a list of the most active and typical sponsors of Communist fronts in the past: List of Most Typical Sponsors ok Front Organizations Adams, Josephine Truslow "arsU. Edward K.

Are speakers and entertainers employed who are frequently associated with other Communist fronts or with the Communist Party or its press? 6. Are facilities used in common with the Communist Partv or its front organizations (printers — see printer's union label, mimeograph services, addressing, stationers, picnic grounds, accountants, real-estate agents, doctors, lawyers, artists, promotion agents, public-relations counselors, radio commentators, etc.). Accountants especially can be instrumental in enabling the Communist Party to keep careful track of the organization's finances and activities. 7. Great care should be taken in determining the character of those who actually run the organization, ignoring such figureheads as the honorary chairman. What is the loyalty record of the executive secretary, of resident and functioning members ol the executive committee, members of the stall, the organization secretary, educational director, editor, etc.? 8. Does the organization, and especially its official organ, follow the Communist Party line on issues and campaigns publicized in the Daily Worker? Does it invariably support and defend the Soviet Union? Does it adhere to its avowed purpose or inject issues of the above character? 9. Does the organization cooperate with other fronts and with the Communist Party in election campaigns. May Day parades, peace campaigns, petitions, tag days, and other projects promoted in the Daily Worker? 10. Does the organization cooperate with Communist- controlled unions? 11. Does the organization furnish direct or indirect revenue to the Communist Parry, its publications, its fronts or establishments through orders for printing, sta- (ionerv, advertisements, donations, and services of various kinds? 12. Is the organization repudiated as Communist-controlled by such outstanding organizations as the American Federation of Labor, the American Legion, or its own former constituents? What is its history? How long has it existed? 13. Does it furnish regular financial statements issued by well-known and reliable public accounts? 14. Is the organization actually controlled by its membership or by an outside Communist clique or group? 15. Does it interchange mailing lists with the Communist Party, its front organizations, or its publications? It would be well for alert Americans to be aware of the tricks employed by Communist fronts when faced with the threat of exposure or prosecution. We list some of these which have previously been employed: 1. After lengthy and arduous investigation, the front will suddenly change its name so that the job will have to be done all over again. Front organizations change their nanus from time to time and are variously labeled in different cities and neighborhoods. Sometimes fronts will merge to avoid exposure or prosecution. At times they have been known to assume a name similar to some well- known and respectable organization.'An example is the Methodist Federation for Social Action which has no official connection with the Methodist Church. Another i.s the now defunct A. F. of L. trade-union committee for unemployment insurance which was forced to desist from using this name as the result of an order secured by the American Federation of Labor before the Federal Trade Commission. By way of illustrating the various guises assumed, the following Communist fronts were active in the recent Page 53 V
