Edgar Hoover, director of the Federal Bureau of investigation, is the author of what follows. The "Message from the Director" appears in the current edition of the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin). "As the current academic year draws to a close, it should be readily apparent that the students in the New Left revolutionary movement are not on college cam- puses to seek education. Rather, this conglomerate of malcontents is engineering a drive to destroy our educational system. "More and more, the New Left is being controlled by the fol- lowers of Karl Marx through the Old Left organizations of the Communist Party, USA (pro-Mos- cow), the Progressive Labor Party (pro-Peking), and the Socialist Workers Party (Trotskyites). Not since the New Left came into being has the influence of Marx- ism-Leninism been so strong. "The Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), largest of the New LeR groups, is rapidly gain- ing a definite Marxist-Leninist co- loration. At the SDS National Council meeting in Austin, Tex., in March, one of the organiza- tion's top leaders was quoted as stating, "Our primary task is to build a Marxist-Leninist revolutionary movement." "While the New Left movement may or may not make the dean's list this year, it rates an A plus in revolutionary exploits. The SDS and its adherents have rocked campuses from coast to coast with violence, riots, and sabotage. At the SDS National Convention last summer a work- shop on violence and explosives was held. Literature explaining how explosive devices can be manufactured and used against Selective Service installations, ROTC buildings, and university facilities has been distributed. The results are a disgrace to a society which owes its very exis- tence to democratic processes under the rule of law. "Many of the criminal acts of the New LeR were, and are, com- mitted as expressions of rights under the first amendment. Cor- ruption of the first amendment would be a better term for such antics. Certainly, free speech and dissent are not synonymous with despotic obstruction and force. The wild and insatiable demands of the New Lea for unlawful power and its blind determina- tion to silence and destroy all who stand in its way are tyranni- cal acts of the first order. "Under the first amendment, a person may hire a hall and speak on any subject to as many people as he can persuade to listen. How- ever, he has no right to disrupt classes and assemblies andpre- vent other persons from hearing a speaker of their choice, Neither the New Left nor any other group should be allowed to plunder, riot, and terrorize our educational institutions and impose its will upon a majority of students who do not share its views.
