Dec'd. left bulk of estate for support and maintenance of Negro minors of Defs. convicted of political crimes, incl. Smith Act, contempt of HCUA, refusal to execute or perjury re loyalty oath, contempt of labor injunction, or similar crimes. Beneficiaries contested will; trial ct. held invalid because it encouraged crime and disrespect for law. May 12, 1962: Calif. Sup. Ct. reversed, upheld will: "We may assume that the testator intended to benefit the children of those convicted of even valid laws of which he disapproved and that his motive in part at least was to encourage challenges to such laws by violations of them. It is the purpose for which the property is to be used, however, not the motives of the testator that determines whether a trust is a valid charitable trust ... Assistance to the minor beneficiaries of the trust in this case is a valid charitable purpose. The risk that such assistance may serve to encourage crime is far more removed than that which the legislature itself may have created by provision for the care of the children that extends to those of convicted prisoners. (See Welf. & Inst. Code, §1500.) The benefit to society offered by the testator transcends whatever criticism there may be of his motives, which have died with him."

(3-1-2) affirmed, Harlan, J.: Def., having failed to rely on privilege against self-incrimination, cannot now claim denial of due process due to impossibility of claiming privilege effectively; if Comm's. public hearings rendered Def's. state trial unfair, challenge should be made after state trial, not now; nothing in record or history of Comm. shows that it exposed Def. merely for sake of exposure. Brennan, conc. in result: In proper case, Hale (201 U.S. 43) and Murdock (284 U.S. 141) should be reconsidered; questions here did not go beyond Comm's. proper legislative purpose. Warren, C.J., diss.: "When the questioning led to matters concerning facts upon which the state indictment was based, the dilemma the Pet. found facing him was this: if he answered truthfully his answers might aid the pending prosecution; if he answered falsely, he could have been prosecuted for perjury; and, if he relied on the Fifth Amdt's. privilege against self-incrimination, that fact could be admitted against him in the state criminal trial." Douglas, J., diss.: "When we say that the Self-Incrimination Clause ... is not applicable to the States by reason of the Fourteenth Amdt., we turn a fedl. proceeding into a pretrial of the state prosecution, should the witness invoke his constitutional right .... Adamson (332 U.S. 46) should be overruled."
