Control Act passed by Congress in
1954 the government says a Com-
munist is one who seeks the violent
overthrow of any government, and
particularly the United States
government. In addition, member-
ship implies being under the in-
structions of the party.
Therefore, according to Casari,
the Secretary of State must estab-
lish by examination of Delto's
writing that he aspires the violent
overthrow of the government.
The writings, however, show
that Deltb holds the Soviet foreign
policy valid and he hopes to in-
spire others by it. "But this doesn't
mean he advocates violent over.

Attacks 'Due Process'
Henson, associate counsel for
the petitioner, attacked the ques-
tion of whether Delto received due
process of law.
A faceless informer should not
be used in this case unless Delto
knows the identity of the informer,
Henson asserted.
Justice Brennan asked Henson
if the Secretary of State has au-
thority to withhold matters re-
lated to foreign affairs. Henson
conceded that this authority ex-
isted-if it was shown that the-
question was clearly involved in
foreign relations.
Used Confidential Information
But in Delto's case, the Secre-
tary of State used the confidential
information to bring a certain
person under the realm of foreign
affairs so as to deny his passport
request, he argued.
Delto's activity with Birsky could

have been done not knowing that
the latter was a Communist, Hen-
son said. There is also no evidence
showing that Birsky was a Com-
munist at the time of his meeting
with Delto.
On the basis of these arguments,
Henson concluded that "each piece
of evidence and each inference by
the Secretary of State is invalid
under the Ffth Amendment and
the denial is thus a violation of
due process of'law.
Gruel, speaking for the respon-
dent, emphasized that the Secre-
tary of State has the discretion to
restrict issuance of passports.
This discretion was implied in
the Congression act of 1926 and
later added to by the 1952 passport
Secretary Has Authority
Because the Secretary of State
has final authority over foreign
relations, he therefore can decide
if issuing a passport will harm
these relations, Gruel reasoned;
Since foreign affairs are outside
the realm of due process of law,
the Secretary's action, based on
his discretion, .is not subject to
review under the Fifth Amend-
Gruel agreed, but added that
the President could delegate this
responsibility to the Secretary of
