Congress Must Continue its Spy Investigation

January 1949
Saturday Evening Post;1/8/1949, Vol. 221 Issue 28, p104
The article stresses the need for the U.S. Congress to continue its investigation into the Soviet Union espionage in the State Department. The attitude of U.S. President Harry S. Truman towards the issue has been uninformed. Highly restricted documents which had been removed from the confidential files of the agency were found on the farm of Communist-party member Whittaker Chambers by the House Un-American Activities Committee. The author believes that Truman is still too ignorant of communist methods.
