Transcript have' overlooked, il they read ii al all, certain remarks that are contained in his book, on which the Court mainly bases its decision. Myrdal slated that the Constitution of the I nited States weis "impractical and unsuited to modern conditions" and its adoption was "nearly a plot against the common people." This is purely Communist propaganda, which was cited by the Supreme Court, and on which the Chief Justice of the United Stales based a very far- reaching decision looking to the destruction of our form of government. I have often wondered what was the source ol iln' pro-Communist influence in the Supreme Court. Myrdal -bows that he diel mil write thi- I. Inn page book himself, lb' hedged himself aboul with many self-imposed restrictions anil "value' premises," so that the book ha.- no scientific validity, cither from the standpoint of biology, sociology. "i psychology . THE COOPERATIVE SOCIAL EXPERTS Myrdal shows lhal bis book was the weerk of several so-called social experts furnished him by the Carnegie Foundation, nf Alger Hiss fame. Il woulel be more in keeping with the facts, il. when Myrdal gave the name- of mosl of these Carnegie Foundation "social experts," he had said lhal they were taken right out of lists of members of Communisl and subversive organizations dedicated to the overthrow of our Constitution and the I nited state- government, because that is the actual fact. If Chief Justice Warren had only lak- en the time and trouble to refresh his memory from his own state's officially printed reports and records of hi- own administration as governor of his own state, In' would have found, and be can slill find, the names of these Myrdal "social experts" in the fourth report on un-American activities in California, 1948, and the sixth reporl published in 1951 on Communist-fronl organizations by the Joint Fact-Finding Committee to the 1948 and 1951 regular California Legislatures, when the Chief Justice was governor of the State of California. ( lertainl) Judge \\ eii Ten cannol claim iinfamiliai itv with bis own state official reports on such em importanl subject. I shall give sixteen names furnished l.v the Carnegie Foundation as "social experts" to Gunnar Myrdal, the Swedish "social engineer," for the writing of In Imeriiaii Dilemma adopted in full by tin- Court and their Communisl connections according to the official 1948 California report, made eil lln- time the Chief Justice was governor of California. I he tenor of thai book is to the effeel that the American form of governmenl has outlived il- usefulness, and thai the Constitution of the I nited States i- a plot against the common people of this country. That was the message of the I'age 30 principal authority relied on bv the Chief Justice of the I nited States in ibis far-reaching decision.
