IN the course of preparing our article upon the Federal Loyalty Order
the authors wrote to Mr. Hoover and requested him to furnish all
available materials relating to the methods employed by the FBI in
making investigations under the loyalty program. Mr. Hoover supplied
us with certain materials, primarily his press statement published
in the New York Herald-Tribune on November 16, 1947. On
the basis of these materials, together with other available data, we set
forth in the article the FBI's position regarding its functions and
methods of operation under the program. Mr. Hoover's letter to the
Yale Law Journal, except in one notable particular to be considered
shortly, adds nothing of substance to his previous statements summarized
in the article.
