OCTOBEK M, BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Communist Groups Move to O ve rt h ro w New Security Law By JACK ADAMS WASHINGTON, Oct. 24. (a>,~ The Communist 1'arly and all 'jLs akd Rroups continued today to ignore (he new Internal Sccuritj u a move was made to overthrow the act In the courts. Act ^he time allowed for voluntary registration by "Communist action" """M "Communist front" organtaa- P expired when the Justice Dc- Pxflment closed Its business day Wsterday. The law requires these organizations to register, disclose tneir sources of fluids and In-some cases furnish ;omplete membership lists. In the view of government officials, this disregard of the regis- Iratlon provisions constituted open defiance to be followed by enforced registration procedure. It was indicated first slops will soon be forthcoming. Meanwhile there were these developments: 1. The Justice Department con r •tinued a nationwide roundup of alleged top alien Communists in (lie United Slates, designed to bring a- boul their deportation or rorce their departure. A provision-of the new law provides for their detention, in jails or on Ellis Island, while pro- Posed deportation Is'pending. The drive was aimed at about 86 aliens whom the department described as among the party's most active Instructors and propagandists. Seek (o Halt Enforcement 2. A large group of persons opposed to the new act sought to enjoin enforcement of any of its numerous provisions and particularly the Communist registration requirement, In Ihe U. S. District Court here. The 107 plaintiffs from 32 slates Included Elizabeth Flynn, member of the Communist Party's N**nal Committee; William L. Purcrson, attorney and secretary lor the Civil Fights Congress, which U on the attorney general's subversive list; and Arthur, Schutzer, executive secretary of the American Labor Party of New York. 3^ President Truman ' named the five-man bipartisan subversive activities control board (SACB) authorized In the Inlerna] Security Act to order the registrations of reluctant Communist groups. Continued failure to register, after a board order,' will involve fines up to 410.000 > day for organizations and in the case of individuals a 110,000 fine or five year's imprisonment, or both. 4. Immigration service officials put finishing touches on at new set of regulations required by the new ' ...* for a blanket ban on admlsr sions of present or former member? 'vr.^any foreign totalitarian movement. The bati is now being appliec' to all present or past Communists Fascists, Nazis and Spanish Falun gists, except where"'trie~'aUornc general grants temporary entry "to: impelling reasons." A»« sidelight on these devekvp- -nuqhf the 1949 convictions of 11 top Vnierican Communist Party officers got into the supreme court for final judgment. The court threw out numerous Complaints by' the defendant* alleging errors In their long and aometimes; rowdy trial In New York: City, but agreed to review the constitutionality of the 1940 Smith act forbidding conspiracy to violently overthrow the government. They were convicted under that act. To Hit F*Hx First I The failure of any Communist or Communist front organization to registor with the Justice Department here In th« 30 days allowed for voluntary action means that Attorney General McOrath will certify this (allure to the uoiHrol board named by Mr. Truman yesterday/ Officials said Ihe first sucli certification, which includes a request that Ihe board order regisrtation will be taken against the Communist parly itself. This may be done within the next two weeks, allowing the new board time to organize The board,,which will hold hear ings on each request by the at- troney general, is headed by Belli W. Richardson. A Republican and former assistant attorney general. Richardson has been chairman of the federal Loyalty Review Board, a job he will now relinquish. Serving with him are Peter Camp bell Brown. Brooklyn attorney and special assistant to Attorney General McQralh. a Democrat; Charles M. LaFolletle, a former Rcptiblica.ii Congressman from Indiana now a director of Americans for Democratic Action; David J. Coddaire, Republican attorney of Boston and Haverhill, Mass.; and Dr. Katl'tryn McHale, a Democrat, educator and psychologist of Logansport, Hid. fn view of Ihe hearing procedhre and provision for court appeals from board orders, many officials predict it may take upwards of two years to finally settle the- question of Communist party registration.
