THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT
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.
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
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
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
