PEGLER (Continued From Page 4) the pleasure of the government on reasonable suspicion that he keeps bad company. This seems to Mr. Andrew's to be a terrible thing. For more than ten years 1 have been waging a campaign against the wanton firing and blacklisting of Americans thr ough the power of unions, which got this power direct from the Roosevelt government. Th i s power was conferred as a po litical favor to an auxiliary of the Roosevelt party. About 15 million citizens are now subject to such dismissal and backlisting by unions with only the most illusory right of appeal to the public courts. The fact that that right is an illusion is shown by the fact that no such case has ever reached the Supreme Court. Not more than a dozen may be found of record in the inferior courts. Such dismissal and ostracism may be imposed as a penalty i for the expression of political j opinions, for buying goods in forbidden stores, and for joining a forbidden political party or faction. They may be thus per secuted. and their dependents with them, lor organizing order ly parliamentary opposition in; their union meetings or holding caucuses outside regular meet-' ings to organize opposition to th ieves, racketeers and thugs. iney may ne tnrown out per manently, under total expulsion, and thus barred forever from membership in all other sym pathetic unions, in other trades, lor announcing in this year, 1948, that they intend to vote for Gov ernor Dewty for president. Some were so punished for so announcing in 1944. This year the CIO has expell ed Harry Bridges from his posit ion of regional director on the, Pacific Coast because he exer cised his legal right of politi cal preference by siding with Henry Wallace. That is a re straint. on his political libertv. SUCH INTIMIDATION, the abridgment of the political and intellectual rights and the lights of association of millions of millions of citizens, has gone un noticed by the Herald Tribune and Mr. Andrews. Mr. Andrews and the Herald Tribune are late. Most of their clients have the appear ance of guilt. The utter impos sibility of giving them formal tri alson the issue of Communism is apparent, to all who recall the the trials of Harry Bridges, which took five years and cost a mil lion, and his final vindication by a split verdict of the Supreme Court. The United States should have the power to fire anyone on sus picion. There is no right to any such .job. In actual practice it isn't THE Communist or the fel low-traveler who gets fired. It is the American working in a bureau where there is a cell of Communists.
