deportation awaits six alleged
members of the Communist Party
who were arrested in Milwaukee dur
ing the "Red Raids" of the now thor
oughly discredited ex-Attorney Gen
eral Palmer. The decision was handed
down by Federal Judge Ferdinand A.
Geiger. The men involved are Mike
Lojan, Bela Jurich, Steve Josisg, Paul
Markovich, John Antolish, and Sam
Because the manifesto of the Com
nunist Party contained such words as
'army of the proletariat', 'Red Guard,'
mass action,' etc., the learned judge
held that these United States were
no place for communists. Therefore
he ordered their deportation.
According to U. S. Marshal Samuel
Randolph, the men will be deported as
fast as the immigration authorities
make the arrangements. Thus again
will the historic traditions of the
United States as an asylum for the
oppressed, wherein a constitutional
provision guarantees the right of ex
pression, be upheld.

Labor Party held a membership meet

the members to vote down the propo

Party within two months. He attack

by the dictatorship for a party! He
also declared: "We shall fight the
