March 31, 1961: Paul Weeks files a story from Washington saying that the John Birch Society has become a "matter of concern to the attorney general.”

Although Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy made no direct statement, a spokesman said "a growing number of inquiries which the Justice Department has received about the John Birch Society has made it a matter of concern to the attorney general.”

Among the congressmen who belong to the society is Rep. Edgar Hiestand (R-Altadena). "It is a group of dedicated patriots fighting communism -- is that bad?" Hiestand said.


And Paul Coates has a letter from the inimitable Parkey Sharkey about his book “Whiskey Road.”
