THE
AXIS WAYStockholm, Sweden, October
9,
1942-A bigclean-up took place in Berlin three weeks ago
in
which more than 1,000 persons, including manywomen, were arrested on charges of grumbling andspreading doubts of ultimate German victory

Reported in
The
New

Times
April
7,
1943-The administration of PremierHideki Tojo has won for itself sweeping powers todecree death to virtually anyone openly critical ofthe government's wartime politics
.
.
.
The Dietpassed a law specifying the death penalty for any-one who "disturbed the smooth operation of thegovernment in wartime

1941-"Free speech as such ought not to be restricted

at this time every reasonable attempt should bemade to maintain both free speech and public safety,and that freedom of speech should be curtailed onlywhen public safety
is
directly imperiled."Washington, D.C. March

WILSONLIKE
MOST
AMERICANS, thought that with Pearl Harbor wehad become a united nation.
I
believed that my "friends"would now become true patriots, stop their disruptive propa-ganda and back up the Congress and the nation
in
the prosecu-tion of the war. Feeling sure that
my
work as investigatorwas over, I thought of enlisting
in

a
mimeographed tract from Boston,postmarked December
8,
1941. It was from Francis
P.
Moran, fuehrer of the New England Christian Front. Ac-companying it was another inflammatory leaflet which read
in

guilty
of murder.

We advocate the refusal of
all
sincere and coura-geous American citizens to pay such taxes on the basis that theyare unconstitutional, un-American, and morally unjust, and on thefurther premise that our
first
duty is to our own needy
and
unem-ployed citizens.
I
realized with
a
shock that my work was far from finished.Instead of burying their past agitations and joining the rest ofAmerica
in
a united stand against Nazi aggression, my "pa-triotic pals" were going to continue their role as transmission-belters of Nazi propaganda!Determined to get the new party line,
