Transcript BHHH8I 'INFILTRATION of Government Beyond Imagination" states Rep. Francis E. Walter, Democrat of Pennsylvania, Chairman of the House Un-American Activities Committer C* **&& Discovery of Communist party cells among staff employees of the U. S. Senate, in the National Labor Relations Board, and in the War Labor Board have been testified to under oath according io Representative Francis E. Walter, Democrat of Pennsylvania, Chairman of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. This Committee, according to Chairman Walter, has found, and very short- Iv will conduct hearings in connection with, infiltration beyond the imagination of anyone in the federal government. This will be done when the facts are able lo be demonstrated "beyond any peradventure of a doubl thai there bad been successful infiltration into positions ol our government." "Then," said Representative Walter, "we are going to bold bearings, and let the chips fall where they mav." Congress has charged the House Un- American Activities Committee with the duty of investigating the extent, character eiml objectives of un-American propaganda activities in the United Steel.-., the diffusion within the United Steele-- of subversive and un-American propaganda which is instigated from foreign countries, or of domestic origin, and which attacks the principle of the form of government guaranteed by our Constitution, and eill related questions which would aid Congress in the performance of ils responsibilities. Speaking at a rally held in New 'lurk City bv Mliance, Inc. an anti-Communist organization, Representative Walter explained thai bis Committee is required 'to make tin- American people aware, if possible, of the infiltration of communism in all phases of U. S. society.' Over the years during which Mr. waiter has been a member of ibis Com mittee, they have been subjected lo ridicule on numerous occasions. Mr. Weill.r told of the Committee's recenl reception in New York by a mob of approximately two thousand, many of whom were reportedly brought in from oulside New York, which staged a demonstration carrying such placards as "Walter Is Worse Than McCarthy." "Down With Walterism," etc. This, he slated, weis no differenl from the reception of the Committee in oilier place-.

"Go Home. lohn Wood." but John Wood had stayed home. Implying that the chairman of any committee investigating subversive or un-American activities, can expect to receive such treatment, Representative W alter said. "You have wondered why Joe McCarthy's name hasn't been in the paper- recently. Well, he's no longer chairman of a committee. I am." Mr. Waller stressed lhat special precautions bei\e been taken by bis Committee to avoid injury by them to any innocent person. A subcommittee of his Committee was set up to devise rules of procedure for this purpose. Rather than receiving the commendation of all for taking such precautions, a vociferous complaint was immediately raised on all sides about congressional committees not having rules, although thev were already operating under rules. A special committee. including Representative Walter, was then appointed by the Speaker of the House to set up rules and procedures before all congressional committees. That group recommended lhal lhe rules of the House Committee on Un-American Activities be adopted for all committees. _ "There's a very fine line of demarcation ... a very fine question on looking into beliefs that our Committee avoids ... on compelling witnesses to give FACTS FORUM NEWS, October. t9S5 PaRe 43
