The article presents information on the book "The Federal Loyalty-Security Program," by Eleanor Bontecou. Some time in the future all eight of the books ought to be immensely valuable documents for those historians who will want to record the sad hysteria of the 1950s. At the moment, however, there is almost no chance at all for much improvement in the areas examined, particularly the Federal Government's loyalty-security program. In fact, the standards of justice have, with no perceptible protest, deteriorated considerably since Eleanor Bontecou's book went to press in January 1953.
