Mr. CVETIC. I do.

TESTIMONY OF MATTHEW CVETIC

(The first portion of testimony of Matthew Cvetic on March 24, 1950, concerns communism in Cambria County, Pa., and is printed under title, “Exposé of the Communist Party of Western Pennsylvania,” page 1345.

Mr. WOOD. General Kearney.

Mr. KEARNEY, Mr. Cvetic, you have been on the stand now several days. Does this complete your testimony? Have you anything else to testify to regarding Communist activities?

Mr. CVETIC. Mr. Kearney, I can't say “Yes” or “No” to that. Any time this committee would like to query me on any phase, I will be available.

Mr. KEARNEY. I am referring particularly to your own file you brought here.

Mr. CVETIC. I think so. This is a case where I was asked if I knew anything else about Cambria County. While there are many things in the files we probably could talk about or testify to, the investigators have gone over the files and we took out what we thought were the most important phases.
