We're Still in Trouble

Yarmolinsky, Adam
November 1955
New Republic;11/7/55, Vol. 133 Issue 19, p9
The article focuses on the political conditions in the U.S. in 1955. Some 10 million wage earners in the United States, one out of five in the non-farm working population, are still subject to one or another of the personnel security programs operated by the federal government. The federal civilian-employees program still applies the test of clearly consistent with the national security from the Pentagon to the National Gallery. When a security officer or board is required to determine whether or not a man's employment is clearly consistent, with the national security, he should be able to see some relationship between the real demands of national security and the employee's performance on his job.
