Experienced Advertisers Prefer The Star
Communist Witness
Claims John Alden
As Direct Ancestor
■y Hi* Auociatad Pr»«t
NEW YORK. July 21.—Famous
names out of America’s past are
being sprinkled into the record
as part of the defense case at the
Communist conspiracy trial.
Newest additions to the histori
cal roster are the names of John
Alden, a Pilgrim father who came
to America on the Mayflower, and
his wife, Priscilla.
A defense witness, Mrs. Frances
A. Hood, of Roxbury, Mass., testi
fied yesterday that she is a direct
descendant of the famous Co
lonial couple.
But unlike her shy ancestor,
John, who had to be urged byt
Priscilla before he would speak
even for himself, Mrs. Hood spoke
out strongly in defense of the 11
Red leaders on trial.
Says “Beliefs Are at Stake.”
She said the Communist Party
—to which she belongs—teaches
the preservation of the American
Government, not its destruction.
Mrs. Hood, a tall Radcliffe college
graduate, is the second defense
witness from the Boston area who
has summoned up the names of
historical forebears In giving per
sonal background.
Previously, Daniel Boone
Schirmer, another Roxbury resi
dent. and a self-described de
scendant of the family of Daniel
Boone, pioneer and trail-blazer,
appeared for the defense.
Mrs. Hood said she Joined the
Communist Party in 1936 and had
been president of the party’s West
End Club in Boston from 1945
through 1948, the years covered
by the indictment against the 11
party oflicials.
She said she has a vital Interest
in the outcome of the trial be
cause ‘‘my beliefs are at stake.”
Taught to "Protect Government.”
Asked if any of the party classes
she attended ever were taught to
work for the violent overthrow of
the government, Mrs. Hood said:
"Absolutely not. Gn the con
trary we were taught to protect
and preserve the government. We
were taught to protect and extend
American democracy.”
The defendants are accused of
conspiring to advocate overthrow
of the government by force.
Under cross-examination, Mrs.
Hood—like other defense wit
nesses—balked at answering some
questions pertaining to Identities
of fellow party workers.
She said one teacher at a series
of classes she attended was Fran
ces Smith, but she would not give
Miss Smith’s married name, de
claring :
“I prefer not to give it because
of her husband's employment.”
Wife of State Chairman.
Mrs. Hood is the wife of Otis
Hood, Massachusetts State chair
man of the Communist Party and
former party gubernatorial candi
date in the Bay State.
She was the second witness
called to refute testimony of Her
bert A. Philbrick. FBI informant
who testified about Communist
activity in the Boston area.
She disputed Mr. Philbrick’s
claim that party members re
sorted to false names, held secret
meetings, failed to keep minutes
of meetings, and that speakers
said revolution In this country
would be carried out by "armed
bands’’ In time of war or depres
sion.

Attempt to Run Down Man
Charged to Bus Driver
Qrand Jury action Is facing a
bus driver charged with spending!
| some off-duty moments attempt
ing to run down a pedestrian with
his automobile.
Edward Ralph Harris, 27. of
the 200 block Third street N.E.. '
was accused In Municipal Court
yesterday of forcing Leo P. Jeni
fer, 41. colored, 1825 Central place
N.E., to jump back to the curb to
escape being hit. The incident
was at Oallaudet and Kendall
streets N.E., Mr. Jenifer testified.
A few minutes earlier the wit
ness said, Harris had picked a
fight with him on another nearby
comer, after driving up behind
him and ordering him off the
street. A woman companion was
with Mr. Jenifer at the time, the
court was told.
Harris did not testify, but police
papers stated he had admitted
drinking “quite a bit” at a nearby
Greyhound bus drivers’ clubroom
shortly before the alleged in
cidents. He denied trying to run
over anyone, police said.
Judge Quinn set Harris’ bond
at $1,000. The formal charge
against him is assault with a
deadly weapon—namely an auto
mobile. _

the fellow who couldn’t find the
spectacles on his forehead, Jay P.
Hanley, Indianapolis, was sure his
car had been stolen. Two hours

quarters—he just remembered he’d
taken it tot a filling station for
lubrication.
