Transcript THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT Communist- Owned G. L Schools! The Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations charges that for years, known Communists have actually been running and operating G. I. training schools for veterans, subsidized with the U. S. taxpayer's money . . . Do you approve of veterans attending schools owned and operated by Communists? Do you want your tax dollars spent financing Communist-dominated G. I. schools? This is precisely the sort of thing that is being investigated by the Senate's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. According to their recent report, over three million dollars has been taken from the U. S. Treasury to subsidize four allegeelK Communist- owned and operated schools attended by veterans under the G. I. Bill since 1945. The three schools specifically mentioned in this report that are controlled by alleged Communists, are the Cartoonist's and Illustrator's School, New York City; the Radio and Television Technical School, Allentown, Pennsylvania, anel the California Labor School, San Francisco, California. The fourth school mentioned, the Robert Louis Stevenson School, New York City, has been previously under alleged Communist ownership. According to the Subcommittee's report, the Veterans' Administration received information from a reliable source during 1951 indicating two persons connected with the Cartoonist's and Illustrator's School may possibly have communistic backgrounds or Page 20 leanings. Finally after three years had elapsed by October 7, 1954, the Veterans' Administration decided that no further Public Law 16 and 894 veterans would be sent to the Cartoonist's and Illustrator's School. It was also determined by the Veterans" Administration that new enrollments of disabled veterans would oppose good public policy until all facts would be presented regarding the associations ancl activities of the "two persons'' allegedly having Communist sympathies. Important testimony was presented to the Subcommittee by John J. Huber, an FBI undercover agent who was assigned to join the Communist Party as a member from 1944 until 1947. Under oath, Huber testified he- first was introduced to Burne Hogarth, (part owner and the current vice-president of the Cartoonist's ancl Illustrator's School) in 1944 at a confidential meeting of the James Connally branch of the Communist Party in New York City. Huber disclosed that Hogarth's name was definitely on the membership rolls of that particular branch of the Communist Partv from 1939 until 1917. Part of Huber's testimony consisted of reading condensations of reports made by him to the FBI. Huber stated that Burne Hogarth was nominated to H.E-: WORLD PlIESE-i* "NOW, LOOK HERE!! YOU" . . . Silos Rhodes, co-owner of the Cartoonists and Illustrator* School, points his finger and shouts at Senato' McCarthy during a public hearing of the Senate Investigations Subcommittee. The clash with McCarthy stemmed from Rhodes' refusal to sfft whether he was ever a Communist. The Subcommittee has been looking into charges that schoo|s now or formerly owned by Communists ha* received millions of dollars from the governrm*" for training veterans. the position of mass organization representative of the Unity Center ol tl" Conununist Party. Subsequently Hogarth was then nominated an' elected to a position as delegate to tn« county council of the Unity Center "• the Party on January 30, 1945. TH former undercover agent also eharg1'' that the Robert Louis Stevens"" School of New York City previous'? was the temporary headquarters *° a Communist controlled organization called the West Side Legislative Coj* ferenee. The name of Burne Hoga-1 was designate-el as executive- secretall of the committee. Huber identinf Hogarth as the individual describe" in his testimony. Following Huber's testimony, "' Bella V. Dodd appeared before a? other hearing of the Subcommittf* Dr. Dodd. an active Communist i° several years, broke with the Party ' 1948 because her own personal bel1" clashed with the Communist d0* trine." Dr. Dodd declared on the witn** stand that it became the policy of " Communist Party at a meeting in S** tember, 1945, to try and organize vl erans' schools being formed. In her testimony before the S" committee, Dr. Dodd stated that >'' SE'' "IIs-e- I.eeieIe. -'Se-IeeieeI ,if Darkness,'* ss-ee, p eei th.- September, 1956, issue- ee!
