Toward Soviet America, published in 1932, William Z. Foster, presently party chairman, has said: The Communist Party of the United States " ° * is the American section of the Communist International * " ° The Communist Internationa] is a disciplined world party ° ° ° Jts leading party, by yirtuc of its great revolutionary experience, is the Russian Communist Party (pp. 258, 259). In his History of the Communist Party of the United Stales, published in 1952, William Z. Foster maintains his thesis: Lenin was also the architect and chief organizer of the great Russian Coin list Party ° * * It is incomparably the most highly developed political organization in the history of mankind ° ° ° (p. 151). In the Daily Worker of March 5. 1939, the following cabled editorial from the Moscow Pravda is reprinted: The Communis! Party of the Soviet Union always was and always will be a model, an example for the Communist parties ol -ill countries. At its meeting on December 3-5, 1938, the National Committee of the Communist Party, USA, members were given Ihe following instructions in regard to The History of the Communist Parly of Ihe Socio/ Union: It will be the task and duty ol the membership and organizations ol the Communist Party in tin- coming months to organize and carry through the distribution of the minimum ot 100,000 copies of this book. Testifying before the House Committee on Un-American Activities on Septembers, 1939, Benjamin Gitlow, Communist candidate lor Vice-President in 1924 and 1928, a former member of the Political Committee of the Communist Party, USA, and of the executive committee of the Communist International, described the relationship between the Russian Communist Party and the Communist International with which the CPUSA was affiliated, as follows: Whereas the American patty • • * had to earn- out decisions of the Communist International explicitly, the Russian party was given a privileged position. The Russian party was permitted not only to review all decisions of the Communist international, hut. if necessary, to take it up in its political committee and to chance these decisions ° ° ° and that decision [of the Russian party] becomes binding upon the parties of the Communist International. Another important fact to hear in mind is that ° ° ° the itiles governing the C munist Intel-national provide that whenever a party sends representatives to the Communist International, or delegates to the congresses of the Communist International, those delegates cannot hi- instructed ° ° ° The only party that has the right to instruct its delegates to the Co itinist International and to make these instructions binding on the delegates is the Russian Communist Party ° * * In other words, they have built the Communist International organization in such a way that the Russians under no circumstances can lose control ol the Communist International. The Subversive Activities Control Board has found, on Ihe basis of the evidence, that — All of the heads ol the Comintern that are identified in the record have been leading members of the Communist Party ^i da- Soviet Union. (Report, p. 11.) Alexander Bittelman, a founder and leading member of the national board of CPUSA, has stated, in his pamphlet Milestones in the History of the Communist Party: The Communist International and its model party - the Page 5 V f/
