Franklin frazier. who contributed to twenty-eight portions of the boeek. emd W. E. R Du- Bois, who contributed lo eighty-two elil- ferent portions of the book. Altogether llii' Communist-front members identified with Myrdal's An American Dilemma contributed to 272 different article's and portions ol lhe book officially adopted by llii' Communisl party eunl by the Supreme Courl a- its authority for ils leeeieil integration decision of May le. I'lol. Thai is tin- true' picture presented bv em einellvsis from the records of the decision of the United States Supreme' Courl in tic school segregation cases. Ib.w eem the' Court expect the Arncr- lean people iii accepl its decision to change tin' accepted meaning of the fundamental principles of our Constitution when its decision is contrary to ■ verv other decision of the United States Supreme (aunt on tin- same question, and when ils decision is now based on its adoption of members of Communisl organizations ami (lommunisl writings as its authority to change fundamental principle- of tin' I lonstitution? 'Ibis same Gunnar Myrdal has recently appeared in tin- news eis directing the staff nf tin- I nited Nations Economii Commission for Europe in the preparation nf ei report regarding the foreign operation of the American Oil Industry. Myrdal's Commission feels that Amerl '■an oil companies "overcharged" their European customers bo Middle Eastern nil. eiml hinted that some sorl of International pri.i' control i- the indicated remedy.

It is a tragic commentary on the intelligence and judgment of the members of the United States Supreme Court that they would override the Constitution on lhe alleged evidence and opinion of such ei "psychological" authority. It is the final indication as to tin degree ami extent that the' Courl has been "brainwashed" by pressure groups ami is willing In sacrifice lhe people, the Constitution, and establish law tee coin- munistic ami -enieilisiii- dogma ami principles. ll i- i'V ieli'iit that th,' decision ..I the Supreme Courl in the school segregation eeese-.- weis based upon the writings ami teachings of pro-CommunisI agitators and other enemies of lln- American form of government. The Chief Justice of ihe I nited States actually cites as authority for bis ilea i-iem ei book, the thesis of which is that the Constitution nl ihe United States is "impractical eunl unsuited lo modern conditions and its adoption weis "nearly a plot againsl lhe common people." Our country heis come to a sorry slate of affairs when the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, speaking for all lhe members nf iln- Courl. should cite, as his authority for a decision, a 1 k compiled by an alien who advocates the destruction of the American form of governmenl the verv form of governmenl which Ibis Chief Justin' emd this I ..in I are' sworn to uphold. . . .

Whereas tin' footnote to lhe opinion lists six eille g.'ellv modern authorities and concludes with the sentence: "and see generally Myrdal.
