Transcript (Contii WHO IS RIGHT ABOUT TUN demands of national security, that these demands eire fantastically excessive, and that national security has not in facl been promoted hv the measures eul"|>l<a! in its name. There have been frequent i eills from many quarters for et private lommittee to make a dispassionate ap- praisal of the program. Tin- Fund for iln- Republic heis undertaken to finance such a committee under the auspices of the1 Association of lhe Bar of the (liiv nf New A ink. In ii- appointments the association heis included lawyers resident outside' of New A 'irk. [A com- flifti- list of these appointments are in- cluded in lie Report. ] The Fund has felt that one way to presenl lhe operation of lhe loyalty- security program was to compile the l.ul- of individual cases. Adam Aeeniiei- linsky of lhe Districl nf Columbia Bar was eiskcd tn obtain such records ;i- he could from defense counsel in these cases. His efforts bene been productive beyond all expectation; his reporl will presenl abstracts of upwards nf three hundred cases, a selection of which will l,c published. The members of Mr. Yarmolinsky's Advisory Committee an- listed in the- Appendix.* Lawyers defending employees who lieu.- lice umi- involved iii llu- loyalty- security program have been handicapped I" the- lack of compilations of laws and regulalinns and hv lhe absence nf the kind of legal reference service that is available in other branches of law. The Fund obtained from Professor Ralph S. Brown, Jr., eiml Seimlrei Weinstein "I the Yale Law School a statement of lhe laws and regulations. It luis entered into an agreemenl with the Bureau nl National Affairs, a publishing company in Washington, whereby the company will sleirl a reference service that will note iln- changes in ihe law- emd regulations emd keep treick of the decision- of courts and administrative tribunals. The policy against retaining persons in lhe governmenl service who ein- regarded as disloyal or as security risks has been extended to those private corporations which have government con- treuls. Some industries in which there are no governmenl contrails have taken it upon themselves to Institute com. parable procedures. The Fund is con- dueling a study of blacklisting in the industry in which the practice has heul the longest vogue, the entertainment industry. Tin- director is lohn Cogley, formerly executive editor of Commonweal, Mr. Cogley's principal assistant i- Michael Harrington. Their reporl will he published early in 1956.
