ABSTRACT
Presents information on the steadily sinking prestige of the U.S. Congress among the discerning people who in the long run strongly influence public opinion in the United States. Congress's continued uncritical support of the one-man inquisition now conducted for many years by Martin Dies of Texas; Texas Representative's assault on Walter Winchell brings him out into the light of the star shells, where everybody must recognize the character of his behavior; Winchell's repeated call on the radio and in his signed column, to persons who in this country were doing the work of Goebbels, or were his native counterpart; Claim that Dies has never exposed any important agent of Germany or Japan, or any native movement which was helping them in their work of disrupting American morale, and he has never furnished to government prosecutors any evidence of treason or sedition which they did not already have; His main activities have consisted in smearing the Communist color on liberals and progressives who were not Communist at all, and in most cases not "fellow travelers."
