Washington, Jan/ '26.—Membership in the Communist Party'of America Is sufficient to make an alien liable to deportation whether or not he may have taken any positive' steps to further the execution of the-'avowed object of.Hhe organization to overthrow the government of the United States. I This was the decision announced by Secretary of Labor-Wilson In the case of Englebret Pries, whose deportation to Austria is approved as recommended. Secretary Wilson's decision estab- lisfies the precedent which will govern cases of all other members of the Communist-party against whom deportation proceedings have been or will be Degun and : wlli affect equally with Pries the three other men whose cases ivere argued by Attorneys Benjamin Bachrach and Isaac B. Ferguson of Chicago, the latter having been Indicted by the Cook county grand jury srith 85 others charged with advocating overthrow of the government. Statement by Wilson. In a carefully prepared statement, Secretary WHson recited the facts in the c»se of Pries,: quoted the law of October 1C, 1918, under which his deportation was recommended, established by quotations from its manifesto and /constitution that the Communist Party of America "is not merely a political party seeking the control of affairs of state, but a'revolutionary party seeking to conquer and destroy the state in «pen combat," and arrived at -the conclusion that it came within the meaning of the act as an "organization that entertains a belief in, teaches, or advocates the overthrow by force or violence of the government of the United States." "It dobs not devolve upon the secretary of labor," Mr. Wilson said, "to determine whether congress was wise in creating the law. or the Communist party wise in creating the facts. It is his duty to apply the law to the facts as he finds them. It is mandatory upon him to take into custody aliens who are members of this organization and deport them in the manner provided for in the immigration act of February 3, 1917." Pries is a native of Austria who entered the United States at Port Huron, Mich., November 13, 1915, having arrived in Quebec by toe S. S. Scoten June 14, 1015. "It is alleged," Secretary Wilsou states, "that the ulie'u is a member of the Communist, party of America, which is afliliated \vith the Communist International. The alien'' admits membership- in the Communist party of America, and that it is 'affiliated with the Communist International. The RABBI MEYER BERLIN 1 Kabbi . .Meyer .Berlini ? uf.-':-Ne.w .

( U. S. Law Is Cited.
