Relations, N. Y. Public Library, has arranged for foreign agents to hold in storage scientific and scholarly periodicals that cannot be forwarded because of the embargo.

The Harvard Phi Beta Kappa, usually heard from only at Commencement, through Paul Olum, first marshall, pointing to recent actions limiting academic freedom at Harvard and other universities, is undertaking a national drive for an "intellectual defense fund" ( Boston Herald, Dec. 10). "The Harvard chapter 'is communistic', the Rev. Francis E. Low, S.J., of Boston College said yesterday afternoon in an address before the Boston College Club of Cambridge. He urged those present to use their influence in asking new appropriations for the Dies committee" ( Boston Herald, Dec. 11).

N. Y. Times, Dec. 24 (UP), reports that Martin Dies said continuance of his "investigation ultimately would result in the 'deportation of no less than 7,000,000 aliens employed in American industries.'" (5)

The Hobbs Bill, H.R. 5643, would imprison indefinitely aliens who cannot be deported. "The guns of reaction are booming", announces the Civil Liberties Union, 31 Union Sq. West, N.Y.C.

"The first and greatest sacrifice which a nation in arms requires of its citizens is the sacrifice of reason itself", remarks John Kelly in the Commonweal, Dec. 29, 1939, in a "Reply to Jacques Maritain".

This was exemplified by the case in 1917 of a man who "was sentenced to a long term of imprisonment for stating his belief that the Supreme Court would declare the Draft Act unconstitutional". ( "Wartime Censorship in the United States", Harpers, Jan., 1940) (6)

Watch the acceleration of the red drive. There are few 'reds'. The idea is to scare the 'pinkos' and the 'fellow travelers', to put the fear of God into the unorthodox.(7)

Beware the release of dramatized stunts, atrocities, already prepared in the propaganda factories as in the last war, to further arouse our emotions and enlist those who stand for 'right' and 'justice'.(8)
