Transcript than thirty daily newspapers from coasl io coasl eill with by-line "liv Paul Crouch" and most of them with additional line, "copyrighl Miami Daily yews." These newspapers included the Huston Globe, New ) ork Journal-American, Minneapolis Slur. Philadelphia Ittt1- leiin. Charlotte Observer, Nashville Banner, Kansas City Slur. St. Louis Post- Dispatch, and the Los Angeles Examiner. In the lighl of this evidence il would seem to be outside the field of sanity to charge me with "perjury" for testifying I had been "author of some feature articles" when ( was with the Miami Daily News! The third of Iwo dozen equally amazing charges weis lhe allegation 1 weis guiltv of "perjury" when T lestificel many times thai I had been Florida state publicity director for the CIO and editor of the "official CIO newspaper," ihe / nion Record. Again the well-documented facts were equally immaterial to lhe authors of the charges and to those who gave them national publicity to destroy my testimony aboul Dr. Oppenheimer. I.euik records and cancelled weekly pay checks will show I was on slalc payroll of lhe CIO in Florida. Examination of copies of the / nion Record can leave no douhl in the minds of anyone lhal il was lhe official CIO publication.

Smoot: I did not have the pleaaure of hearing your "Status of Forces Treaty" discussion last isie;bt, but a mutua] friend told me that you had listed me among those who had "abstained" from voting on this matter. This vote occurred while I was in Texas on my only, trip during 'in- session, and il <■ an opportunity to make this clear. I would appreciate it. Had I been present, I would have voted no.

FRED SCHWARZ lino. Hawaii < rElS iikmkn: Last night, when I plugged into radio earphone system of this tuberculosis hospital where I am now a patient, to listen to F VCTS FORI M (Station KILA, Hilo), I received a real surprise. Dr. Fred Schwarz, your ^ucst speaker, is a verj good friend oJ mint'. In my opinion, he is one ol the world's l»«'>t authorities on communism: and he is mn' ol tin- very few who understand the OUtlook anil mental processes of the Communists withoul having learned the hard way as 1 did. I kimu only too well that communism i- a disease, exactly as Dr. Schwarz described it. 1 was one of its intellectual victims for seventeen years (1925-1942). Neither hunger nor lark nl a promising personal future made me a Communist. It was intellectual conversion tn the philosophy id Marx and Engels. My father, incidentally, was a Baptisl minister, school teacher, and farmer. I fell a victim tn Marxian ideology duri ng acl nal chi Idhood < joining Young People's Socialisl League aboul the age of thirteen before the Russian Revolution). During mj fifteen years as a leading full-time official in the Communist party I saw the terrific turnover of industrial workers in the party. I personally Issued over a thousand Communis) membership books to new members. More than three-fourths of the workers and sharecroppers who gol books from me broke completely with communism. Some left in a tew months; few remained over two ur- three years. On the other hand, among the university professors I recruited or who belonged to party organizations under my supervision, I believe that less than two per cent have shown an\ evidence of a Ineak with communism. I know of only ONE individual from that large group nf professors who has actively cooperated with the governmenl in exposing the subversive apparatus. <I refer only to those in unit~ under my jurisdiction North t .arolina, South < Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Utah, Alameda County, California, including the University of California.) Dr. Schwar/ correctly stresses the facl thai povertj and ignorance are not necessarily breeding fields for communism. For three decades two of the most powerful -nul efficienl (Communist parties in Latin America were I rugua) and (losta Rica the mosl literate nations south nl the Rio Grande. Uruguay lias an exceptionally high standard of living, and in Costa Rica real povert) .ind hunger are virtually unknown. In Latin American countries of real povertj Bolivia, Haiti, Honduras. Paraguay, for example the Communisl movement i- very weak. I nder the Vmerican Man. two areas where the ( oininiini-t party is exceptionally well entrenched and powerful are (!ali forma and Hawaii. In both places average living standards are very high. In Florida the part] has its greatest strength among wealthy residents ol Miami Beach. Would it he possible for Facts Forum to publish Dr. Schwarz's interviews iii pamphlet form or in Facts Foi um Vews?* They would help materially in shattering illusions that prevent a correct approach to the fight againsl atheistic world communism. Sincerely yours. I'tmi Crouch Mn June. FACTS FORUM NEWS published the first interview with Dr. Schwarz, "Communism and intellectuals." The second interview.
