Outlawing the Communists

August 1954
New Republic;8/30/54, Vol. 131 Issue 9, p7
The article presents a discussion on the Communist Control Act of 1954 in the U.S. The Act deprives the Communist Party of the rights, privileges and immunities attendant upon legal bodies created under the jurisdiction of the laws of the U.S. or of any political subdivision thereof. Serious legal precedents are raised to haunt non-Communists as to the extent to which the federal government can deprive an organization of its rights and privileges under state laws. The Communist Control Act subjects anyone who knowingly and willfully becomes or remains a member of the Communist Party to all the provisions and penalties of the Internal Security Act of 1950 as a member of a "Communist Action" organization.
