of the committee, but has been in

Group Collects Funds.
In another Hollywood develop
ment, the actors’ division of the
Progressive Citizens of America an
nounced $150 was collected at a
meeting last night to send Actress
Karen Morley to Washington. She
will attempt to answer testimony by
Mr. Taylor to the effect she and
Actor Howard Da Silva were dis

Actors Guild, it was explained.
The PCA unit adopted a resolu
tion calling on House Speaker Mar
tin to abolish the House committee,
and Bert Witt, PCA executive di
rector for Southern California, sent
a telegram to President Truman
asking that he also seek its abo
lition.
Carlson Charge Answered.
In Los Angeles, School Supt. Vier
ling Kersey said he had no evidence
to indicate Communists held mem
bership in the American Federation
of Teachers’ local union there, as
charged in hearing testimony yester
day by Oliver Carlson, author, teach
er and one-time Communist.
“As far as my ofHce knows, no
teacher-member of that union has
been proved a Communist,” Mr.
Vorcou coiri
Harold Orr, president of the local,
declared the union "is not and never
has been’’ dominated by Communists.
"The fact our leaders may not be
long to the political, social or re
ligious groups that Mr. Carlson
thinks we should does not make us
Communists,” he added.
Chenery Issues Denial.
In New York, William L. Chenery,
publisher of Collier's Magazine, said
Kyle Crichton, one of the editors,
"is not a Communist and never has
been a Communist—I investigated
that charge a dozen years ago.”
Mr. Carlson testified Mr. Crichton
was a speaker at a Hollywood rally
arranged by a Communist Party
propagandist to "soften up” the
film colony and enlist its members
in Communist front organizations.
Mr. Crighton had been writing in
New Masses, Mr. Carlson said.
Mr. Chenery said the Communist
charge first was made against the
editor when he was employed by
Scribner’s Magazine. At that time,
investigation revealed that, "as a
matter of fact, he’s a Democrat,”
Mr. Chenery recalled.
Walt Disney Heard.
Walt Disney, cartoon film pro
ducer, was the last witness before
the week end recess was called yes
terday.
His testimony concerned princi
pally his dealings with Herbert K.
Sorrell, head of the Conference of
Studio Unions. He charged the
union leader with calling a strike
at his cartoon studio and scoffing
at National Labor Relations Board
election procedure.
The cartoon producer said he had
asked an election at the request
of a group of his artists, who had
told him they didn’t believe Sorrell
could control a majority of the work
ers in the studio.
“Sorrell laughed at me and said
he used the Labor Board only as it
suited his purposes,” Mr. Disney
testified.
Quotes Union Leader.
The union official “trapped” his
artists, despite his efforts to protect
them, Mr. Disney asserted. He said
Mr. Sorrell told him:
"You can’t stand this strike, and
I’ll make a dustbowl out of your
place if I want to.”
“Communist front” groups began
to attack him as soon as the strike
was called, Mr. Disney continued.
He listed as examples of such alleged
"front” organiations the League of
Women Voters and three publica
tions, The Newspaper PM., The
Daily Worker and the People's
World.
“They called my plant a sweatshop
and that’s not true, and everybody
in Hollywood knows it,” "Mr. Dis
ney said of the attacks.
Asked whether lie considered Mr.
Sorrell a Communist, he replied:
"Well, I think Sorrell is sure
lied up with them. If he isn’t a
Communist, he should be one.”
Recalls Remark.
He told of a remark assertedly
made by Mr. Sorrell during a con
ference on the Disney studio labor
dispute:
“He evidently had heard that I
had called them all Communists—
and I think they are. He said, ‘You
think I’m a Communist, don’t you?’
I said I aid, and he said, ‘Well, I

used their money to finance my
strike of 1937.”’
Mr. Disney said he felt Commu
nists in Hollywood are md&t active in
the labor units, "and I believe they
ought to be smoked out, so that true
liberalism by real Americans can go
on without the taint of commu
nism."
He said David Hilberman, an art
ist he believed to be a Communist
and “the real brains’’ behind agita
tion within his studio, had been em
ployed by him in 1938. Now, how
ever, he said, “I believe everybody in
my studio is 100 per cent American.”
Proof Called Impossible.
In addition to Mr. Sorrell, Mr. Dis
ney said he thought William Pomer
ance and Maurice Howard, two other
Hollywood union figures, were Com
munists, "but no one has any way
of proving those things.”
He said his films had not circu
lated in Russia in recent years, be
cause he had found "you can’t do
business” with that country.
"The Three Little Pigs” was the
last of his cartoons shown exten
sively there, he added, but said he
believed some later releases, sent
for inspection, were exhibited before
being returned with the explana
tion they were not wanted.
An exchange between an earlier
witness and two members of the
committee involving press reaction
to the hearing brought a statement
from Paul V. McNutt, counsel for
the film producers, declaring:
"The dangers to free speech in
herent in this inquiry were sharp
ly pointed up in the attacks on the
press at the hearings this morning.
Press Challenged.
“We have said that when the
free screen was singled out first for
attacks on its rights of freedom of
expression, then the press, the radio
and other instruments of communi
cation would not be immune.
“The press was challenged today.
Will it be radio programs tomorrow?
Books and magazines the next day?
Where will it end?
"These are very real threats to
the freedoms guaranteed by the Bill
of Rights to the American peo
ple. • * •”
Mr. Carlson was testifying when
Representative Vail, Republican, of
Illinois interjected that he had seen
a newsreel the previous night in
which a statement on the hearing
by Mr. Johnston was featured. Mr.
Vail asked Mr. Carlson what he
thought of unfavorable reaction to
the hearing in some newspaper
columns and editorials.
Mr. Carlson said it was his opinion
the influence of such writings was
slight, that the editorial page was
“dying out” and that editorials had
little effect on public opinion.
Representative McDowell, Re
publican, of Pennsylvania then in
terposed that, “as an editorial
writer," he would have to “take
issue with Mr. Carlson's statement

The Pennsylvanian publishes two

Chairman Thomas then ended the
discussion with the statement that
it was "getting too far afield,” and
had no connection with the pur
pose of the Investigation.
“As far as I’m concerned, a man
can write anything he wants to
about me,” Mr. Thomas added.
With respect to Mr. Vail’s news
reel reference, Mr. McNutt, who
represents the MPA, said:
“As evidence of the fairness of
the newsreels, Chairman Thomas
and Mr. Johnston both appeared In
the same newsreel on the hearings."
