Transcript The Communist Party of the U.S.A. (Continued from Page 15) Official Questionnaires Communists have been most vociferous in condemnation of what they term government prying in connection with loyalty investigations. Below we present a questionnaire which party functionaries were required to fill out in 1946. If any government agency in this country would dare to infringe on the privacy of its citizens to such a degree, it would be denounced from coast to coast by the left wing press as violative of civil liberties. But so far as we know no Communist, nor any civil liberties advocate, has ever protested against this Communist questionnaire as an invasion of the privacy of an American citizen. Through such methods as this compulsory questionnaire the party is in a position to know every possible use to which each party member can be put by the Communist conspiracy.
