Q[J Unless noted and e xplained, a search of references to the subject of your
request 1n the files of other individuals or organizations, i.e., "see" references ,
was not undertaken. To verify most "see" references requires information identifying
the individual(s) and/ or organi z ation(s) with whom the subject of your request associated

last two paragraphs on page 9 are exempt from public
disclosure pursuant to Title 5, United States Code,
Section 552 (b) (1), (b) (7) (D) and (b) (7) (E). The Department

On August 21, 1964, a Mr. Louis Lomax addressed the - . ·
·Luther League (ALC) which was meeting in conventi-on at Detroit, Michigan. -- -
Included among his statements is the following charge which I quote ·_ ., .
'!And I make the point about Cuba to develop a second idea 1 want ··. "l i
you to deal with, and it' s rampant in your ·church. And that is that every- ·
body today is so busy looking for communists, looking for left-wing bugaboos
under bedspreads, that when we walk down the street and say I want a· job, if_
is immediately beard: by God, the communists did that! We staged a sit-in -:.·
in order to get a cup of coffee, or. to go to the bathroom, and we're accused ·
of being communist inspired. What a pity it isn't Christian inspired. And . '
when Mr . J . Edgar Hoover, who hasn't been able to find a single bomber--
although 69 bombings, 23 of them churches, have occurred against my · · .: · · · ·
people in the South in the past four years--J. Edgar Hoover hasn't found :...'
a cotton pickin' one of them, yet he's found the communists in the Civil .· ·
Rights Movement. · Bully for him! 1 ·' ., .... -
'... ... . -; --
. . Indeed it' s almost impossible to go anywhere today and .: · ( ..
not find somebody in it who wasn't one day linked to the communists • · ··
