- Article has no by-line but is probably from the Communist Morgn Freiheit (Frayhayt) newspaper. Translated Summary: Reports on witnesses' refusal to answer questions about Communism in children's summer camps before a congressional committee. A mention of Rubin Saltsman's name next to that of famous [blacklisted] actor Howard Da Silva is marked. The article's date is based on when they both gave testimony "taking the Fifth."
- The US Un-American Activities committee (HUAC) held hearings investigating Jewish Communist summer camps later in 1955 as well as held numerous previous hearings from 1947 on that asked people to testify about Communist Party membership, sympathies and activities.
- The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
