Oie committee should "go ahead and ex pand our Investigation" in this direction with particular emphasis on "what he said were Communist- controlled . or dominated labor unions. The committee probably also will Investigate -Communist Influences in education, He (aid Inv estimation has shown Communists in the school system of the country, and . the re are "still Communist Influences In every university In the country." Velde said that "less emphasis" probably would be placed on the committee's long-standing study of Communists in the movie Industry. xor.
