MONDAY, MARCH 14, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWI PAGE IETEN US Has Never Used Law Outlawing Communists By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — In the six months since Congress "outlawed" the Communist party, the government has not cracked down on the party under that act in any way. The Justice Department is investigating some independent labor unions — unions in the AFL or CIO — and may in time try to prove they are Communist-run. Otherwise the party has not been*— , — penalized in any way under the 1954 act. The Eisenhower administration wax worried about that law, even before It was passed. It feared it would mess up other laws under which the government was moving against the Communists. The government has two main laws for moving against the Communist party: 1. The Smith Act, passed in 1940. Under this the top party leaders have been tried, convicted and jailed for conspiring to teach violent overthrow of the government. 2. The McCarran Act of 1950. Under this the government is still trying to force the party to register as a Moscow agent. This wouldn't outlaw it. The government has been working since 1950 to carry out the McCarran Act. The case is in the courts now. There will be no final answer until the Supreme Court gives it. And that may not be until 1956. The outlaw act. passed last August, overlaps the McCarran Act in a number of places. The Communists now, in their court fight, are arguing the McCarran Act is unconstitutional. The 1954 act was a hasty piece of legislation, thrown together on the floors of Congress just before the lawmakers quit for the year and went home to face the voters in last November's elections. Even though it says right at the start that the purpose of the act is to "outlaw" the party, the act iseif provides no machinery for doing so. What it ,does say is that the party is not a political party but a conspiracy to overthrow the government and therefore is "not entitled to any of the rights and privileges" lhat can be claimed by "legal" bodies. What rights and privileges? For one thing, the act said Communists could not appear on the ballot In an election for federal office. That apparently was not a problem in the 1954 election. Under the act a union found to be Communist-run can be deprived of the benefits any union has through action of the National Labor Relations Board.

He added, "I am against anything that would restrict our freedom of thought or information." Two U.S. College Men Tour India with Bankroll of $100 By EUGENE LEVIN NEW DELHI (» — An eight- week tour ol India for $100? Michael Hammond, of Menasha, Wls., says he did it with Brlce Claggett, of Washington. D. C. The two men, both 25, are in India on scholarships from Rotary International. They made their tour during the annual college vacation which, in India, is Just over. Claggett is a Princeton University student now at Allahabad University. Hammond is studying at Delhi University after graduating from Lawrence College, In Appleton, Wis. They traveled 5,000 miles from Delhi through south India to Ceylon. "We rode third class trains and buses all the way," Hammond said. "In the heat and humidity of the South, air conditioning would have been swell; but we had to settle for third class — open windows, dust, cinders and all. No Hotels "We couldn't afford hotel rooms and in most of the places we visited there were no hotels anyway. Besides, the weather was nice and it was fine to roll out our blankets on the station platform. "We just went down to the public water foundation, filled our brass cups with water and threw It over ourselves like a shower — and like the Hindus do. "Food was all right, except we had to settle for, the same menu every day, and three times a day. The Indian restaurants supplied us a plateful — I mean a banana leaf full — of rice and curried vegetables. We washed it down with tea and topped it off with fresh fruit. That was the menu: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Vegetable Diet "We never had meat since most of the areas we visited were strongly religious with vegetarian Hindus dominating. "A few people said we were the first Westerners they had ever seen traveling in third class. Getting to meet people—something we hoped to do in addition to saving money by traveling cheaply — was rather difficult. No one was hostile to us. but our fellow passengers Persistent Customer . ST.
