Frankly Speaking
BY PAT FRANK
’T'he Dies Committee has wound
up its important hearings and is
currently preparing its report to
be submitted to the next regular
session of congress. This report
will cite the evidence uncovered
In the second year of the House
probe of un-American activities as
justification for two moves—en
actment of a legislative program
designed to curtail the freedam
with which subversive influences
work and the continuation of the
committee for an indefinite period
with greatly increased appropria
tions.
A vigorous behind-the-scenes
battle will undoubtedly be waged
in the House on both issues. The
fight will be waged by New Deal
representatives in the House. The
sole reason for the contest, to put
it bluntly, is that Mr. Roosevelt
and his intimate advisors do not
trust Rep. Martin Dies.
A legislative program drafted
on the basis of the committee’s
findings and under the influence
of its report will be only dis-

guised anti-labor and anti-liberal
legislation, New Dealers charge.
A continuation of the committee,
it is claimed, will place Dies and
his conservative colleagues in a
position to continue their sniping
at the New Deal in an efford to aid
conservatives in their fight for
party control at the 1940 conven
tion.
On his part Dies says any polit
ical aspect of his investigation has
only been purely incidental and
constitutes proof that he has been
interested only in un-American ac
tivities. He is equally distrustful
of the Federal Government’s drive
against subversive elements as
New Dealers are of his. The
Texan has frequently voiced the
allegation that the Government
has failed to cooperate with the
House probe and that it leans over
backward to protect Communists
and other extreme left wingers
from any application of existing
laws.
Dies has taken cognizance of
the basis of the attack which will
be launched against any legisla
tive program he will seek to have
enacted by congress and in recent
statements has stressed his avow
ed belief that such legislation
should be enacted with scrupulous
regard for fundamental liberties.
The whole fight will be strictly
an inside affair deisgned to keep
the House from considering any
part of Dies’ future program. If
the proposal to continue the com
mittee gets before the House, the
battle will be lost for the New
Dealers because few congressmen
will vote against it in view of the
widespread popularity the probe
group has attained.
The fight over the legislative
program will center in House and
Senate committees considering va
rious legislative phases of it where
a strong effort to substitute an
Administrative program for that
outlined by Dies will be made.

Music To My Ears
BY DANIEL L. SCHORR
A DIGRESSION FROM MUSIC
“Yah! yah!” sneered our sever
est critic the other day. “You
spend your time listening to fid
dlers while the world burns.
You’re an escapist—a fire escap
ist!”
We rose to indignant protest,
and to prove that we still care
about international affairs we
have written a rhymed commen
tary (the first part of which was
previewed by Paul A. Peters last
week):
RHYMES FOR TODAY
“Oh, let us have some seafood,”
Said Moscow to Berlin.
So Adolf ate a tad-pole
And Joe gulped down a Finn.
“I’m not a man of war,” said Joe.
“Pm like a little dovey yet.
“But hunger grew beyond all
bounds.
“We were starved. And So-vi-et.”
“We cannot let you,” Erkko said,
“Our border to diminish.
“So if you send your army in,
‘We’ll fight you to a Finnish.”
“I will not let you,” Joe replied,
“To make of me a monkey.”
So Stalin sent his bombers. Now
Helsinki is Helsunld.
