Mr. Cvetic said that the former Is actually a Communist organization, a very dangerous and Insidious one, through which the party expects to carry Its propaganda to young people. The Civil Rights Congress, on the other hand, is only a "front" organization. Many of its mem bers are persons sincerely concerned with protecting civil rights in the United States with no allegiance to Communism at all. For this reason the committee refused to .make a part of the record the "sucker list" which the Communists in Pittsburgh maintain for the Civil Rights Congress, on which were names of prominent citizens, not Communists, who could be prevailed upon to come up with a donation or a speech when needed. Clergymen were orten vic timized in this way, Mr. Cvetic said. Particularly Negro clergymen, to whom the CRC was "sold" cleverly as a thoroughly American organization which! Harold would aid the plight of the American Negro. He quoted a heated debate between one such clergyman and William Patterson, national executive secretary of the CRC, about "hating one's enemies." Mr. Patterson said, according to Cvetic, "We must .learn, to hate our enemies enough to kill them." "Who are our enemies?" the clergyman asked. "The Wall Street and Washington warmongers," replied Mr. Patterson. oiMMNi ' " . MWAM v in llll ii v:!-.':W"-.. Associated Press Wlrephoto MATTHKW CVETIC Paper seized in Pittsburgh.

The Labor Youth League was described as having been organ ized about two years ago by the Communist Party to succeed American Youth for Democ racy, which had become ineffectual through exposure. A YD in turn had succeeded the Young Communist League when that or ganization became a political hot potato. The Labor Youth League in Pittsburgh was organized last summer. Mr. Cvetic said the latest membership list to which he had access was from last De cember 5. Then there were about 143 members of the LYL in East ern Pennsylvania; about 43 in the Pittsburgh area of the 43, nine are college students in Pitt or Carnegie Tech; two are in high school. 3,660 Members He said that last December the national membership of the or ganization was 3,660. However, Frank. Tavenner, chief counsel for the committee, said he has reason to believe the membership has increased nationally in the mean time to 5,879. It would be hard lor a young person to belong and not know he was participating in a Com munist front, he said, since the club holds classes in which the doctrines of Marx, Lenin and Stalin are taught. active in Communist work in the Pittsburgh area: Evelyn Abelson, Pittsburgh.
