Million Duped by U.S. Reds ' WASHINGTON (ff) -- The House Committee on Un-American Activities said Sunday the Kremlin has succeeded in enlisting more than a million Americans into a nationwide campaign of political subversion. " T h e i r participation has ranged from membership in the farflung network of Communist-front organizations to the signing of Communist - sponsored .petitions, and has included substantial financial contributions," the committee said in the second section .of its annual report for 1957. "It is fair to say that many of these people would be aghast if they understood the full import of their activities and the extent to which they benefit the Communist conspiracy." * * » « THE COMMITTEE said it had identified more than 200 organizations charged with carrying on' the Communist program. "Chief among these was the American Committee for Protection of Foreign Born and Its' Various Affiliates," the report said. It said through this group the Communist party "has mobilized all of its resources to render ineffective" the U. S. Immigration and Nationality Act £nd other security legislation. "Dovetailing with this pro gram of political subversion is the nationwide campaign of the Emergency Civil Liberties Committee," the report said._^ A committee aide said the ECLC ' has no connection with the American Civil Liberties Union * « * * THE REPORT added that the ECLC scheduled more than two dozen meetings in cities across the country "to stimulate a barrage of letters and petitions to members of Coni 1.1: _ ^.ec:«;-iio /»all_ ing for support of the ini* tor suuuort ut m*~ j^un.*- «*--, » ------------ gency Civil Liberties Commit- gative powers of Congress i tee's program.

WiUoughby conceded 1 there was a danger in halting nu clear bomb tests or initiating disarmament on. · a unilateral basis. B.ut, he said, he was not convinced the Soviet government would attack the United States if this country fell behind in the development of nuclear weapons and other means of defense.
