Transcript Senator James 0. Eastland and Justices Burton. Minton, eiml (.lark. in which he absolutely denied the competence of the Court to pass upon issues such as those presented in the segregation cases. He said: "Only those lacking responsible hu- mililv will have ;i confident solution for problems eis intractable as the frictions attributable to differences of race, color, or religion. . . . Certainly the due-process clause does not require the I.filature to be in the vanguard of science especially sciences ei- young .1- human sociology eiml cultural anthropology. ... "h i- not within our competence I" confirm or deny claims of -< >■ i a I scientists eis to the dependence, of the individual on the position of his racial 01 religious group in the community. The Supreme Court, unable to relate science to the Fifth Amendment, has eleine' an unheard-of thing, li has now found scientific authorities lee attempt I" -usteiin ils view '.f what the Fourteenth Amendmenl should mean. \\ ho ein' these authorities? From whal background do they come? \\ hat hee- been Ihe nature of their work and activities? THE "MODERN" AUTHORITIES Let us consider the so-called modern authorities on psychology 1 iteel by the Court as its authority to change and destroy the constitutional guarantees of the reserved natural right of the people of the states "I tin- I nion to freedom of choice eiml of the -leite- to regulate their public schools. K. B. CLARK First, they cited one k. li. (iark, a Negro, so-called social-science expert employed by the principal plaintiff in the segregation cases, the NAACP, whose lawyer argued these eases before the' Court. To say the least, it is the most unusual procedure for any court to accept a litigant's paid employee as an authority on anything. Iel alone as an authority on psychology, to put him above tlie Constitution itself. THEODORE BRAMELD Then, too, we find eiled by the Courl as another alleged modern authority on psychology to override our Constitution, one Theodore Brameld, regarding whom the files of the Committee on I n-Ameri- eein \e ti\ ities of the I nited States House of Representatives are replete with eita tions and information, lie is e heel as lieiving hern a member of no less than ten organizations declared to be com- munistic, Communist-front, or Communist-dominated. His name has frequently appeared in iln- news columns of the Daily II inker. Brameld. according to tin- Com miini-i official Daily Worker of February 2.'!. 1949, signed a statement ol th.' Committee for Free Political Ail vocacy defending the twelve Communisl leaders. Again, on December 10, 1952, the Daily Worker shows that Brameld signed an appeal to President Truman requesting amnesty for leaders nf the Communist partv convicted under tin Smith Act. And. again, nn I'el.riiarv 10. lO.'tf. the Dnih Worker shows Theodore Brameld tei have signed et letter in defense of lhe appointment of Simon \\ . Gerson, a Communist, tn tlie staff nf Stanlej Isaacs. Hi- name' appears on a brief sub- mille.l by Cultural Workers lo the Supreme Court in October, 1949, on l.e half nf lln' le'ii convicted defendants engaged in the motion picture industry, who were charged with contempt of ei congressional committee for refusing In eif fi 1111 or ibn \ membership in the Com- munisl party in response tn committee questions. Hi' weis affiliated wilh the American Committee lor Protection of Foreign Born, a- shown by the Daily Worker of August 10. 1950. which committee wei- 1 iti'il ei- subversive ami Conimuni-t l.v Attorney General Tom Clark in letter lo iln- Loyalty Review Board, released on June 1 and September 21. 1948, eiml wa- redesignated bv Attorney General Brownell, April 29, 1953, under provisions ..I Executive Order 10450. The Special Committee on Un-American Activities cited the American Committee for Protection "I Foreign Burn as "one of lhe- eelele-l eill \ il iai il's eif the- (inn munisl partv in tin- I nited States." lb- wei- listed l.v the Daily Worket on January 11 ami 25. 1938, as a supporter ol llie Boycotl Japanese <. Is Conference of lhe American League lot Peace and Democracy. The American League for Peace and Democracy was established in the United Slates in 1937 as successor lo the American League Againsl War and Fascism "in an effort to create puhlie' sentiment on behalf of ei foreign poliev adapted to llie interest of ihe Soviel I nion" ami "wa- designed in conceal Communist control, in ac- e hi ilania- with lhe new tactics of the Communist In tenia tin mil." Thi- is shown by report of Attorney General Biddle, Congressional Record, September 21. 1942; by reporl eef Attorney General Clark- letters in Loyalty Review Board, released June 1 and September 21. 1948; eiml b) Attorney General Brownell in his memorandum of April 29, 1953.

There is the puhlie record nf Theodore Brameld, win. wa- cited bv llie Supreme Courl as ei modern authority on psychology in support of ils racial integration decision of May 17, 1954. I bis record not onlv was available to Chief Justice Warren and lhe Associate Justices of the Supreme Courl upon request, but thi- record of Brameld was ineiele' up partly by an Attorney General who is now a member of the Court which rendered that decision, and by official printed reporl of the administration of Chief Justice Warren when he was governor of the State of California- E. FRANKLIN FRAZIER Also cited by the Court as one of its modem authorities on psychology to overthrow the accepted meaning of a provision of the I nited States Constitution was one E. Franklin Frazier. The files of the Committee on I n-American Activities of the United States House "I Representatives contain eighteen citations of Frazier's connection with Communisl causes in the I nited States.
