The Great Pretense
A Symposium on Anti-Stalinism
and the 20th Congress of the
Soviet Communist Party
Prepared and released by the
Committee on Un-American Activities
A truly valuable assortment of
articles contri huteil liy specialist*- well
acquainted with the cunningness of the
Soviet Union. In the foreword, Rep.
Francis E. Walters (D-Pa.), chairman
of the committee, warns, ". .. It is evident, even this early, that, irrespective
of the causes which may have produced
anti-Stalinism, it is hut a political
artifice, fraudulent and more dangerous than any other produced by the
Kremlin thus far."
Supreme Court Under Fire
\ great many persons maintain that
the nine Supreme Court justices,
firmly entrenched and secure from
political ill winds, are substituting psychology for law and sociology for the
Constitution. Irate defenders of states'
rights charge thai recent Supreme
Court decisions reflect a judicial journey to the left of center. Read an
analysis of these charges in the next
Issue of this magazine*.
A condensation of
Bella V. Dodd's book,
School of Darkness
\s a young idealist, Bella V. Dodd,
college teacher and attorney in New
York City, received intensive training
from, and worked with tireless devotion for the Comntunisl Party. Her
mature insight and legally-trained
mind enabled her to analyze the communistic promises of world betterment
which had misled her. She writes vividly of her disillusionment, of the corruptness which she saw, of her break
with the Party, and of the inevitable
persecution which began immediately
and continues today. She tells how the
recognition of the USSR by our governmenl in 1932 gave impetus to Communist ex pan-ion in America.
Don't read this book, if you prefer
to he serene rather than indignant, or
if you prefer the ignorance of bliss to
knowing the bitter truth.
