Attorney General Hits Subversive Group

Jan. 10, 1963 - Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy asked the Subversive Activities Control Board today to order Advance, a New York City group, to register as a Communist-front organization. In a petition presented to the board, Mr. Kennedy charged that Advance, which describes itself as an “organization of progressive youth,” was organized by the Communist Party in February 1960. The board was told that the organization, with headquarters at 80 Clinton Street, New York, has been directed and financed by the Communist Party since its inception. The petition said the purpose of the organization is aiding and supporting the Communist Party by conducting picket lines, protest rallies, propaganda campaigns, and other activities of this nature.
