You know, of course, that The j^Jierican Legion's opposition to 'j'NESCO is not based exclusively on 'ue facts I have cited, damaging and inclusive as they are. , »Ve are strongly opposed to ,uNESCO because of its propaganda 11 this country for world government. The record clearly shows that from !'s inception UNESCO has been entified with the idea of world gov- tnrnent. And the record also shows 5*t UNESCO has tried to peddle its sobal-minded concepts to the one *°UP in America most likely to be £*suaded by its propaganda — our ^ool children. u Uiey are likely targets only because j. eV nave not yet acquired the matur- y and experience to understand the 5 danger of world government. Ea i Se wor'('-government propa- u "da efforts are in direct violation of .e act of (.'ongress authorizing U. S. ;'r,'w'pation in UNESCO. Congress ,^'fieally prohibited UNESCO in- terence in America's educational ystem. 'Crn iS not s"rI'rising, in view of this m„ P'ete lack of respect for the sover- of the United States, that Ion should state in its publica- Cu ''"titled "In the Classroom with \ "?,ren under Thirteen Years of ',,*e that "as long as the child athes the poisoned air of nationally > education in workl-mindedness t«., .Produce onlv rather precarious Nts." L Th' Ki« Same publication further states 't n Ot"ication for world-mindedness si(j'r'ii<'"t encounters obstacles out- ^uV i sc'10°'- The principal one YltV is nationalism.' ftls is only one UNESCO's world-government advocacy. Another can be found in UNESCO's publication, "The United Nations and World Citizenship." In discussing world citizenship, this publication states: "World-wide organization for the conduct of human affairs is, therefore, essential. No teacher with a sense of realism and even elementary knowledge of world affairs will ignore this basic need or be indifferent to its consequences for education. World machinery is required; and human beings with the right outlook are required to utilize it or to insist that it be utilized. The educator thus has a double task: to teach about the machinery of world cooperation and to foster the growth of the spirit that will make it function. Education has, in short, the urgent duty to develop informed and competent world citizens." There are some who contend that UNESCO did not publish these documents or that UNESCO no longer is endeavoring to peddle these ideas. They have seriously deceived themselves, for here is the record: The publications, "In the Classroom vv itil Children under Thirteen Years of Age" and "The United Nations and World Citizenship," are listed on page 26 of UNESCO's own catalogue of available English language publications in the field of education issued by UNESCO up to September, 1955. Incidentally, the cover of this catalogue proves rather conclusively that UNESCO does intend to get its materia] into our school system in violation of the prohibition by Congress. It reads: example of "Education of interest to primary school, secondary school and university teachers, students, teachers' training colleges, education officials, adult education instructors and fundamental educators." It is not necessary to examine each and every one of UNESCO's publications to determine whether this agency is not only propagandizing for world government, but seems also to be the sanctuary for red-tinged radicals. We need only follow that famous axiom: "Consider the Source." The list of authors of UNESCO publications who have been identified with organizations listed as subversive by the Attorney General or the House Un-American Activities Committee is . . . long . . .[Editor's note: Commander Wagner's partial list has been omitted, but a fuller list, furnished by The American Legion's publication. The Firing Line, follows this article.] UNESCO is also active in the field of visual education. And so are some of its left wing representatives. Let me cite just one example. For a number of years the UNESCO Film Section was headed by John Grierson. This individual resigned as head of the National Film Board of Canada at the time of the Canadian espionage hearings. Denied a visa to this country, he came in through UNESCO and headed the film section of that organization. There are many others, of course, whose identification with UNESCO gives The American Legion more than sufficient cause to oppose this agency. The most prominent of these were Alger Hiss and Harry Dexter White. The American Legion's conclusion Our National Interests Are Served (From an address by Walter H. C Laves, Former Chairman, II. S. National Commission for UNESCO) u AKE no mistake ahum it — ■ r national interests are served Y our membership in UNESCO. '"'I I .I....', —. .1. .. .I....... I. the J"VES( truth in the Idea that Unit v fl States d o tn Inatei ■O. Wc don't dominate it. 'ther Hoes anv other country gtfttate. Neither does UNESCO ^inate us or tell us what we Y *o do or interfere with us in * Way. Domination, interfer- I J' " control, jut*t aren't in ESCO'a vocabulary or its con- tL *'on «r its actions. What is . r*' is free, friendly coopcra- h and mutual aid. ' course our national inter est* are served by UNESCO. When the Indonesian delegation •ays, "We welcome UNESCO becaUM il helps us make our national culture and aspirations known to the West," they are ■peaking of their national interests. When Mexico says, "Wc are happy to he in UNESCO because it lets us benefit from research on the development of arid /ones," they arc speaking of their national interests. Those are two examples of a score 1 could cite. And we, too, are happy to belong to UNESCO because our national interests are well >erved. K "in m Nl us. .\pril, 1956 Page 17
