Transcript Communist Party of the Soviet Union — headed by Comrade Stalin, gave us the guidance that helped the American Communists to find the way to the masses and to the position of vanguard (p. 8). * * * The leading role of the Communist Parts- of the Soviet Union needs neither explanation nor apology. A Party that has opened up the epoch of the world resolution, and that is successfully building a classless society on one-sixth of the earth, is cheerfully recognized and followed as the leading Party of the world (p. 21). 11. From its very inception, the Communist Party, USA, has received instructions and directives from Moscow, the headquarters of the Communist International, on such important matters as the following: (a) Merger of the Communist Party of America and the Communist Labor Party (1920). (b) Combining legal and illegal work (1922). (c) Campaign in behalf of political prisoners (1923). (d) Establishment of the Daily Worker (1923). (e) Establishment of the Workers Party of America as the legal branch of the Communist Party (1923). (f) Merger of Proletarian Party of America with the Workers Party of America (1923). (g) Praising achievements of the party (1923, 1924). (h) Attitude toward the LaFollette movement (1924). (i) Fusing together the foreign language sections of the party (1925). (j) Reorganization of the party on a shop nuclei basis (1925). (k) Trade union activity (1925). (I) Sending of an American trade union delegation to the USSR (1925). (tn) Removal of Daily Worker and party headquarters from Chicago to New York (1926). (n) Attitude of the American party toward the Nicaraguan situation (1928). (o) Celebration of international holidays (1928). (p) Permission to hold a national convention (1928). (q) International Red Day campaign (1929). (r) Trade Union Unity Convention (1929). (s) Gastonia campaign (1929). (t) Work among the miners (1929). (u) All-America Anti-Imperialist League (1929). (v) Liquidation of party factions (1929). (to) Recall of the executive secretary of the CPUSA (1929). (x) Changes in the party secretariat (1929). (y) Address containing instructions from the Communist International directly to the members of the CPUSA (1929). (z) Cablegram of instructions from the Young Communist International to the Young Communist League of the USA (1929). (aa) Criticism of issues of the Daily Worker (1933). (bb) Formation of a third party (1935). 12. The official literature of the Communist Party, USA (Daily Worker, Political Affairs, etc.), has paralleled the line of Soviet publications (Pravda, Izvestia, Neic Times, etc.) from the foundation of the party to date. This parallelism has been maintained throughout all fluctuations in Soviet policy: for and against the League of Nations, for and against cooperation with the democracies against Fascist aggression, for and against peaceful coexistence, etc. American Communist publications have even reprinted articles from these Soviet publications for the guidance of their readers. The Subversive Activities Control Board has held that: 7. Respondent has established a press in the United States Page 6 patterned after that in the Soviet Union which operates as a means of setting forth for Respondent's members the correct line as laid down by the Soviet Union; 8. The press in the Soviet Union and the journal of the Communist Information Bureau are major communication means whereby directives and instructions of the Soviet Union are issued to Respondent * ° ° The Attorney General, in his petition to the Subversive Activities Control Board, has stated: Throughout its existence the Communist Party never knowingly has deviated from the views and policies of the government and Communist Party of the Soviet Union, the Communist International, the Communist Information Bureau and other leaders of the world Communist movement. Whenever such views and policies have conflicted with the position taken by the Government of the United States, the Communist Party has opposed the position of the United States (Report, p. 79). 13. The Attorney General, in his petition to the Subvef' sive Activities Control Board, has further stated: The Communist Party regularly reports and has reported to the government and Communist Party of the Soviet Union and to the Communist International and the Communist Information Bureau ° ° ° ( Report, p. 89). Such reports were printed in official organs of the Conun" nist International and the Cominform such as The InW' national Press Correspondence, For a Lasting Peace, Pot People's Democracy, etc. CPUSA leaders William Z. FnS' ter and Alexander Bittelman submitted such reports >' 1926, Benjamin Gitlow in 1927, 1928, and 1929, and En'1 Browder, in 1932. 14. The Communist Party, USA, has accepted the sts' utes set down by the Communist International in MoscoV The Communist Party — a Manual on Organization by >' Peters, formerly CPUSA representative in that city afl former head of the Communist underground in the Uni'^ States, states that he has depended, for the material in ' manual, upon the "resolutions and decisions on the Q<j tion of organization adopted by the Second Organization Conference of the Communist International." The Secofl Congress of the Communist International held in W' decided that — All the parties and organizations comprising the Coiniii"' nist International bear the name of the Communist Party *'' the given country (section of the Communist International)- , In line with this decision, the American party design* •] itself as a "section of the Communist International ull.„ the party's disaffiliation to circumvent the Voorhis Ad 1940. Article 3, section 1, of the constitution of the Wot* (Communist) Party declared that a membership re<T" ment is acceptance of — the program and statutes of the Communist International i"11 of the Workers (Communist) Party ° ° • 15. Point 15 of the Conditions of Admission to the C"'.. munist International, adopted in 1920 and accepted by ' American Communist Party, was the provision that" the program of each party belonging to the Communist Int''r' national should be confirmed by the next congress of '"' Communist International or its Executive Committee. 16. At conventions of the CPUSA, fraternal gre^ were exchanged between the American party and 1 Communist Party of the Soviet Union. The SubverS^ Activities Control Board notes such interchange* ^ CPUSA conventions in 1921, 1927, 1929, and 1950 (ReP" pp. 95-98 17. In his petition to the Subversive Activities CO1 Board the Attorney General held as follows as to the ciplinary power to which the CPUSA is subordinate* Facts Forum News, March, Artie Pea
