Congress Is now in position to make this recommendation lav/ quickly, if it wants lo. Jt may hot, because of the rush to gel home. The House has passed a bill in carry out Eisenhower's Idea. The Senate Judiciary Committee has approved a similar one. But the lull Senate hasn't acted yet. The idea that a man can be der-rived of his citizenship — a na> tive-born or naturalized American — Is not new. There are federal :8ws covering a list of specific of • 'enses for which a man can lose iis citizenship. When this happens ,o him he becomes ah alien, even .hough he <s native-born. Here is the list: treason; taking an, oath of allegiance to a foreign government; becoming a citizen of a foreign government; serving n foreign military forces; civilian employment in a foreign government; voting in foreign elections: 'ormal renunciation of American citi/cnship; deserting the armed forces in wartime; departing from or remaining outside of the Lmled States In time of war or during a ational emergency with the pur ?ose of avoiding training and scr vice in thj armed force?. Those are' the offenses, simpli 'ied here for space, under which a man ran lose his American citi cnship. Some of them were made iaw in 1907, the rest in 1040. The House and Senate bill would sim ply odd a few phrases to Hem No. — treaqon — with this general effect; A man can lose his citizenship not only for treason but for inciting rebellion against the government r conspiring to advocate Its': over throw by force. That phrase — onslplrintf to ailvoratq it* over :hrcw by iorcc"— is aimed straight at Comnitinl'Hs. / II is already a crime — under [he Smith act, passed Jn > l((4() — lo conspire to Wach or rtch^cate forceful dv^rthjjow. Ancl dozens of Communist leaders have been con \ictcd under '•it » ' 'Just wnat would loss ojj<" citizen ship — also spoken of 95 loss of nationality **— mean f^r a native a'qrp or naturalized American'? The Justice Ddpartment^ got 'up a list to answer Hhat questl'pn. This is it: T1 Loss -of Mhe rigHt to vote,, hold pujptic ^office by Election .or appoint ment, -or jo'sprve on a j^ry. A man vho lofeUJ:;? citizenanlp ( coiildh't et,, art' American pa.S8.p6rt.

Under various state laws ' e<?V,eiring Aliens Ik could be barrod frdiyi- several professions, from receiving an ir iicrltance', or from owning real pstale. He'd have to register an: keep the government informed o£ lns> whereabouts; and he'd bo barred from employment by the federal government and probably all state and local governments. There as nothing in the bills in Tancred observed. "He was a clipper-ship man before the war. Made a pile trading with the Orient. At least that's the story he's spread about himself My personal opinion is that he made his money running slaves from Africa." Miller drew in a deep breath. "If you have no objection," Tai- cred said, 'I could put up a cot here in the shop," "I've no objection. I only wi£>h T could put you up at the house. But we just don't have the room And during the cattle season it's almost impossible to find a place in town. I'll stop m at the Boston Stoic this afternoon and have them send over a >ot and some blankets," "That's fine, Mr. Miller. And now I might as well get familiar with the typecases," "You'll find copy on the hooks Tho big ono's straight mf.ller, the small one ads," Tancred took off his coat, hung it , on a nail and walked to Ih? typecases.
