Wi—Thi* country has reached a postwar peak In the excitement over the hunt [or Communists, spies, fellow trtvflen, Russian sympathizers, subversives and security risks. At Ie««t half a dozen things have bc'en happening this week around th« country in connection with Communism, spying, fellow-traveling, or •ubvenkm of one kind or another. This peak has been slowly build-* ——-^_ Inf up over the past few years. ever since the war ended and relations with Russia, friendly during the war, fell lo pieces. The excitement Is being fanned by events in Congress and court trial* M more names are brought rightly or wrongly, into the present crusade against Communism. A number of innocent people probably will be hurt in this spreading starch, but the concern over Communism is so great the end Is not in sight. Here »re ujst six of the things thai have been happening: 1. In New York 11 Communist party big-shots, all admitted Communists, are on trial on a charge of teaching conspiracy to overthrow thU government by violence. This haa been going on for months. 3. In California the slate Senate Un-American Actlvties Committee this week listed a number of prominent people, including movie stars .and writers, as having "followed or appeased some of the Comniunist Party line program over a long period of time."

Here In Washington, too. a congressional committee is holding an open hearing on charges by Senator Hickenlooper. Iowa Republican, that David E. Llllenthal. chairman of. the Atomic Energy Commission, has been guilty of "incredible mismanagement." Lillenthftl'5 management Is under fire but Hickenlooper keeps raising questions that spread the odor of Communism over AEC's atomic program In one way or another. For example: Was so-and-so who worked on the program a gocicl security risk? How come this man or that was allowed to do secret work? 5. In New York Alger Hiss, onetime state department official, Is on trial on a charge of perjury, the result of his denial of charges made against him before a grand jury by Whitlaker chambers .who admits he was once a Communist- Russian spy. Chambers accused Hiss of handing over State Department secret papers to him. Chambers, himself, on the stand during the trial has admitted he has committed purjury seven times. But as the case drags on. other names besides those of Chambers and Hiss are brought into It, as links of spy ring here back In the l»30's. 6. And in Washington one of the biggest explosions has come out of the trial of Judith Coplon. former Justice Departn.ent employe, being tried on a charge of pilfering government secrets. A flock of Hollywood stars and others, people Hiss Coplon probably never met. have dragged Into the case, not as spies, but as people unidentified informants of the FBI accused of being Communists fellow-travelers.
