[We have received from a Civil Servant who speaks with some authority in union affairs and takes an active part in sue!: affairs the following statement, making clear to Mr. W. I. Brown, General Secretary of the Civil Servants' Clerical Association and prospective Popular Front Candidate for the Stroud Division of Gloucestershire, what is the reaction of a great many Catholics in the C.S.C.A.. to the encouragement given by the Association to exclusively Left Wing propaganda and activities.)
"A word to W. J. Brown : the Catholics of the Civil Service support their, and your, union. They thank you for your brilliant leadership in trade disputes in the past and they will give the C.S.C.A. their loyalty for the future—if the C.S.C.A. in return respects their conscience; and does not adopt Nazi methods in dealing with them.
" For some time past the young and enthusiastic people of extreme Left opinion have had an increasing influence in Association matters.
" As a result of this influence, to take but two examples, the National Youth Advisory Committee of the C.S.C.A., with many of the local Y.A.C.s, is affiliated to the Unity Theatre Ltd., the theatrical counterpart of the Daily Worker; and the propaganda film Spanish Earth was energetically supported and publicised by Y.A.C.s—anyone protesting against this support was condemned out of hand as Fascist.'
