Worrosor, has so far conducted is considered,by the foundation directors -as a one-sided, dist rled and untrue view of what they have been doing. This whole business started last July when Representative. Rcecc made a speech demanding a con- jrcssional investigation of-.founda- .ions. There is a, well-founded-suspicion that the original motive was political; /Representative Reeee is.a former GOP · National., Committee chairman. He had supported the late Sen. Robeit A Taft of Ohio for he GOP presidential nomination n 1952, After the Chicago conven- ion there was considerable bit- erness against Paul Hoffman who lad taken leave of the 1 ” Ford Foundation to organize, the Eisen- hower.nomination campaign. Open Charge. The open charge made against all foundations in general and the Ford Foundation in particular was that they were’ “using their resources ;for un-American.and subversive activities, for political purposes, propaganda, or .attempts to influence legislation.” In. October,’. 1953, however, the charges of subversion were subordinated. It was announced that they had been looked into, and there was little there. The.Reece committee took a new track. This was revealed when the committee hearings opened and Norman Dodd, its director or research, presented his report on six months of study. It intimated the existence of a gigantic conspiracy on the par] of the leaders of American education; the foundations and the federal government to int’ernation alize U. S. thinking and direct it toward the social sciences. ‘ What emerged was a set of charges regarded as utterly fantastic by the foundation representatives who; have been observing the hearings. In brief, the charges seem to boil down-to this: Changes in the U.S. educational system in the last 50 years have been un-American, These changes nrp tho result of a plot on the part of the foundation trustees who have spent their:millions-in ways and for purposes never Intended by the.donors. Financed By Grants. The “carle!” of organizations Induced by such grants and alleged-, to have put this over, include: The American Council of Learned Societies, National Research Council, American Council on Education, National.-Education Association (founded 1857), etc;, supplemented: by such others as he .Parent-Teacher -Association’s ind;National Council,of Churches. All have, of course, been con- idered so eminently respectable to be viewed as reactionary by progressives. The new and particular villain of the plot, however! seems to be the Fund for the Advancement of Educutlgn.’, It was formed only ihree yeois ago with a giant of 55 million from Ford Foundation, Its purpose wis openly and frankly selociive reicarch and experimental projects to limprovc’ and further develop formal education. Chairman of tho fund is Frank W. ‘Abrams, for many ycais head ol Standard Oil’ of New Jelsoy. Olhers’on’ the fund’s board Include Roy Lnrscn of Time, Phlll» V*cd of General Electric, Paul M«Hon and Owen J. Roberts, formir Su- premo Court Justice. None of these nor any other foundation officials have as -yet been requested to testify nod tell. .heir side of’the-story: ” Noiv at: RDELS OF .TROY ONSON PRICES I Federal Taxes Cut! a movement:to draft him.
