Dec. 8, 1961: Def. pleaded not guilty. Jan. 5, 1962: Def. filed motion to dismiss because: (1) registration requirement requires Def's. officers to incriminate themselves; (2) only way for Def's. officers to claim privilege is by Def. in their behalf; (3) registration statement requires Def. to express agreement with the Gov't's. condemnation of it by defining "Communist-action" organization in registration statement in statutory language, which Def. rejects as inapplicable to it; (4) Act, by permitting S.A.C.B. to determine whether Def. is "Communist-action" organization, unconstitutionally denies Def. grand jury indictment, trial by petit jury on this issue; (5) Gov't. employees on indicting grand jury could not decide impartially in this case; (6) demand for list of members, financial reports is extravagantly vague and impossible of compliance; (7) punishment of $10,000. for each offense permits prosecutor "to bankrupt a political party merely because it refuses to stigmatize itself by a public confession of guilt", in violation of Eighth Amendment's prohibition against excessive fines. Motion to dismiss indictment denied. Trial date: Dec. 11, 1962.

Feb. 19, 1960: Def. sold 2 golf courses to two $75. per week city employees; price $1,215,000; down payment $30,000., reverter clause if they diverted to other use.
