Cho-Cho Pleas
Jack Stangle
Washington Gone Crazy

Dear Lolita Lark,

Re Washington Gone Crazy

As a young boy I recall that HUAC investigated many labor unions though most were cleared and were staunch supporters of America.

I thought I read some articles in the New York dailies of that time (plenty were around then) that the Communication Workers of America union was one of those investigated because it was thought there were communist sympathizers within trying to get a strangle hold on our communication media.

Can you tell me if the CWA was one of the unions investigated by HUAC or at least point me to a source?

Thanks for any reply.
