Sunday, October 11,1959 """ PAUL HARVEY NEWS Court Is Destroying Us AMERICAN For years, in garages and attics in the United States, expert engravers and printers prostituted their professions producing fake passports. In clandestine workshops these most important documents were prepared for members of the .Communist underground, Fake passports to get Red agents In and Red couriers out of the United States. At intelligence headquarters in Moscow, few documents were •o higly prized as an American passport. For this truth we have the testimony of a former chief of Soviet intelligence in Europe. Some of the Americans who have disappeared behind the Iron Curtain never to be heard from again were disposed of aolely so their passports could be seized, altered and re-used. During the Spanish Civil War Communists assiduously col-, lected' American passports' from members of the International Brigade. So many, In fact, that our government was forced to replace every outstanding passport in the .world with a new document. Thus did the Russians prize this "piece of paper" that they would steal and lie and kill for one. Today, with the blessing Of the Supreme Court, Communists can apply for passports and our State Department must Issue them! The Supreme Court ruled In June, 19S8.(flve to four), that the Secretary of State cannot refuse a passport to a Communist even when he hasspeci- flcslly found that the applicant' is going abroad for mischief to the detriment of the United States. John Hanes, Jr., Administrs* tor of Security for the State Department writes in The American Legion Magazine, "Adequate passport legislation (by the Congress) is a necessary and integral part of our screen of weapons." What be means is that our nation's internal security is in jeopardy and the conspiracy is vastly strengthened by our self-imposed weakness. President Eisenhower urgently endorsed legislation. He said, "Each day and week that passes without it exposes us to greatef danger." However, just when It appeared that Congress ' would surely recognize the urgency of the cold war and restore this prerogative to our authorities . ., .Came .the Khrushchev visit. Congress could hardly be expected to attach much urgency to the matter of denying passports to second-string Communists when the head Red and his entourage were welcomed through the front door. The .Senate, in its haste to get out the back door, left the House-passed legislation pending. Jt still la an urgent mater, however. • -John Edgar Hoover has said, In our much vauntedtolerance •• for all peoples, the Communists. have found our Achilles heel." 'It is already very latei we must recognize that free men are not. free to destroy the freedom of others. Our Constitution has conspicuously failed to provide for our own defense against ourselves. .

But:, Unlike the visit -of Nlldta S. Khrushchev, the coming of Adolf o Lopez Mateos won't ease tensions. ' The President of Mexico won't bring any. President Lopez Mateos comes as a friend, not an enigma. He doesn't speak English very well, and will have to be interpreted, but no one will have to be concerned over the. accuracy of the translation, as many were with the Soviet'; Premier, There wont be any need to soft-pedal any questions thrown. at the Presldeat of Mexico, or Nice-Nelly his answers, because he's not going to take where none is intended. Lopez Mateos .won't thunder that, there must be peace between us. because he takes it for granted there will be. It will never occur to him to talk about peaceful co-existence. No two peoples could co-exist so close as we do and be more peaceful. Lopez Mateos is a friend, and we know he's a friend.

One Sunday, however, she broke down his resistance, and even persuaded him to greet people at the door. He hailed almost everybody by .their first name, until the church -was filled and the services about to begin. At the last moment, a straggler appeared. Charlie shook his hand, told him how glad he was to see him in church, and expressed the hop* he'd bi back the following Sunday. • "I'll be; back, all right," the straggler assured him cheerfully, then walked down the aisle and up into the nulnit • to start the services. • * • • Freds.

Half eras w& 1a~ 45 IT K> it's going to be a variance with the visits of nearly, every other bead of state who has been here, Mexico's head man is going to be a downright novelty. He doesn't want anything from us except respect. The President of Mexico Is unique even in. his choice of traveling companions.- He is bringing with him no economic ministers to explain to "us why .we must grant economic'aid; and no generals to" explain'the same about military aid. This unfamiliar type doesnlt want either guns or butter. '...:. Wo do you guesS^are-theiwo principal members'of his entourage?

What a non-conformist this fellow is I He isn't even going to hint darkly that if his '.country's two top educators aren't granted economic and military aid they may find it necessary to turn. Communist. The visit of the 49-year-old chief of our southern Good ..Neighbor is also going to be pleasing to the newspaper gentlemen who cover Presidential doings. Begging his pardon, he's going to be a bargain • • attraction. Because of him, we are geting two Presidents to our show for the price of one. The white House Correspondents Association is giving a stag, dinner for President Eisenhower on Oct. 12 to honor Ike on the 69th anniversary of his birth. He was actually born two daya later—on Oct. I4--but we like to keep ahead' of things. When the tickets were sold, at the inflationary price of $12.50 for a member and $17.50 .or each guest, the presence of only one head of state was offered. But President Eisenhower has invited President Lopez Mateos to attend the birthday celebration with him. Two Presidents for the price of one may seem such a fine bargain that some members will even regret that they invited guests, although this does seem a little far-fetched. I don't mind confessing that I • got the Idea for this column (barring the tightwad angle about the expensive guests) from Mexico's new Ambassador-at-Large, His Excellency Don Judto Sierra. • Senpr Sierra transfixed- me with a penetrating glance at lunch in the National Press Club and suggested I would 'be derelict in my trust if I didn't go a column comparing the visit of his President with that of Khrushchev—giving his man, of course, all the best of it. I am always inclined to listen to Ambassador-at-Large Sierra because, before he made good,, he used to be Mexico's Jim Hagerty. For many years he was press attache at the Mexican Embassy here. But Justo isambi- tious and refused to stay bogged down in a rut like Jirosy. In English, which he confidently believes to be flawless, His Excellency double-neg- atived me: "You will do a piece saying this is a great rjccasion in the lives of ourtwogreat countries, no. You will do this, no " "Yes," I said* WEEKEND ONJV; NAtPNAt REPORT Dyes for Politics Tested By LYLE C. WILSON ; .-- United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) - The legal test, now pending before the Supreme Court of political activities under union shop labor contracts throughout the United States, was preceded by these events: . " , „•.. • The Congress in 1951 amended the .Railway Labor Act specifically to permit the carriers .and unions to make union shop contracts. . -' Suit was brought to challenge this authority and came, finally, before the Supreme Court. This was known as the Hanson case, . The court upheld the union shop, contracts but included in its opinion, a significant reservation.' '":''• • ' * 5 ' :. ™:-f •-.•'- r Tliis reservation was as follows':" 1 V""" '" ' "Judgment is reserved as to the" validity or enforceability of. a union or closed shpp agreement if other conditions of union membership be imposed or if exaction of dues, initiation fees or assessments is used, as a cover for .enforcing ideological conformity or Other actions in contravention of the first or the fifth amendments." • . 'Now before the Supreme Court on appeal from the Georgia Supreme Court is the Looper cast. In this case several employees of the Southern Railway complained thy unions to which they are compelled to belong'to hold their jobs misuse union funds. The alleged misuse consists of spending dues money for purposes other than the negotiation and administration of collectivebargainlngagree- . ments. - . Mqre specifically, It is alleged that duejr money obtained, under compulsion of a union shop agreement would -be used for political and legislative purposes by the complaining union members. . .. Georgia's Supreme Court found valid the complaint of the protesting union members. The complaint In its broadest form was that to exact dues and from union members' for such poUtlcaJl and legislative purposes woujd-' be unlawful "and^in-yiolation of the fittrabersV constitutionaUy guaranteed rights ' of 'freedom' of association, thought, liberty and property.

Strom Thurmond. somewhat of a fanatic on physical conditioning himself, would like to impart some of his robust health to the rest of the country. The South Carolina Democrat likes the fact that, the United States is a nation on wheels Cnly he would prefer to see more two-wheel bikes and fewer four-wheel cars. "1 might introduce a bill fa the ne xt session," Thurmond said, "to . recommend . that states establish bicycle,. paths next to 'the -highways to encourage exercise." ' . . "It shoulcto'tr'sost-mUebi'Viie added in an Interview, "jind even if it did, it would be worth it," ' His fine physical condition helped him in 1957 when he conducted a personal filibuster on the Senate floor which lasted over 24 hours.' "I couldn't have done It if I hadn't been In condition," he said, and added that the same thing was true when he first entered the political arena to run for governor. ' "1 didn't have much money," he said, "and my cany>aign was from store to store and from filling station to filling station. It took a tremendous effort. "I just don't know how a fellow can run a campaign without being in condition."
