FAQB TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWf 1 Treasury Is Hit For Aiding Reds Sen. Boll Charges Tax Statin Helps Subversive Groups By JiBi«i r. Donona (VaMat m*a Miff corrnpondent WASHINQTON, Jan. 29. CUP) — Sen. Joseph H Ball, R., Minn., charted tod»y that the Treasury it Tirtually subsidising Communist aettvltlea by granting special Ui status to eight organizations which Attorney <3«ner») Tom clark hw branded •• "subversive." Ball «aid in a statement that the treaaury lists these organization ajnoni "charitable, religious •dmtlflc, literary or educational" *nte*prlaea. Hence, he said, contributions to them are deductible on the donort Income tax return. "The eight organizations," snld B«JJ, "are all Communist 'front*' vhleh meana that a good proportion « any funds contributed to them ire siphoned off to finance Communist Party work." Re said the privileged tax status of these groups helps them to aoltdt funds. This, he »«ld, "almost amount* to « federal department assisting organizations dedicated to the overthrow of our system at government." H> called on the Treasury De partenent to submit Its list of tax- dedueUble organizations to the FBI and "clean out all subversive and front outfit*." Hit eight organizations mentioned by. Ban were: The Joint Antt-FascUt Refugee Committee, National Council ol American-Soviet Friendship. Hollywood Writers Mobilization, Inter- nationa} Workers Order, Ohio School of Social Sciences (Cleveland), Philadelphia School of Social Science*, Samuel Adams school (Boston) and the School of Jewish Studies (New Tork City). , LfcUt Mr Loyalty Checks .Ball noted that alt eight were on the list of some 80-odd allegedly •ubterslve organisations which Clark submitted to the Loyalty He- rtew .Bourd last November, Some ef th»*e groups also have been branded aa Communist fronts by the House, UnAmerican Activities Committee. The Minnesota Senator expressed doubt that the eight are "the only Communist-fronts on the Treasury's tax-deductible list. He said, the Southern Conference on Human Welfare which "the Communist* brag about controlling," Is not bn Clark's subversive list but is on the Treasury list. Ball criticized th e apparent conflict between the Treasury and Justice Department lists as "another ease in this administration of the right hand not kno' Ing what the left hand t« doing." The government Is the loser In this case, Ball said, because of the tax revenue involved. For instance, if 9 contributor should give one of these orgnntza- tIons $1,000, he would be able to •write if off on his tax return. So, actually, the donation would cojt htm only a part of the $1,000. while the government would be footlnj the Nat of tha bill tn the form of lost revenue.
