Ike Sees Red – the Registerers… Not So Much

Today in History:

In his Summer White House office at Lowry Air Base, Colorado, President Eisenhower signed into law the proposed anti-Red bill which virtually outlaws the Communist party.

The President called it a step in the program to guard the nation.

At the close of the first day in their new jobs, Anita Intellini (left) and Shirley McGowan, both of Washington, D.C., are completely bored.

Their task is to register Communists at the Justice Department under the Communist Control Act signed into law by President Eisenhower.

Not one Commie, not even a Pinkie, came in to register.
