erally known that the direction of this
inquiry was not in the hands of unbiased
investigators. The principal 'experts' are
David J. Saposs and George Soule, whose
radical viewpoints may be gathered from
their association with Mr. Evans Clark,
acting under the direction of Ludwig
C.A.K. Martens, head of the Soviet Bureau
in the United States; their connection also
with the Rand School of Social Science,
and certain revolutionary Labor organ-
izations further emphasizes their unfitness
