Answer to "Subversive Authors" Charge By John F. McJennett Assistant Director, U. S. National Committion for UNESCO [Facts Fohum News asked for a statement from the U. S. National Commission fot I WESCO to accompany the list of "subversive authors" furnished by The American Legion. The following is their reply. —Ed.] With regard to "certain authors of UNESCO publications who have dubious records of lev ally to the U. S.," 1 have checked . . . [those] mentioned with UNESCO's general catalog of publications . . . The catalog tn which I refer goes up to fulv, 1954. and the new one will nut be out until this summer.

National Commission for UNESCO] has heen made and reveals that none of the writers listed were called by the Un-American Activities Committee to respond to questions about their associations.

It would be extremely unlikel) if a lew of this number would not hold beliefs or hadn't been members of organizations of which some national group disapproves. In each instance the writers were selected on the basis of their standing in their technical field. Their product was measured by the same standard. As you may also know, by arrangement with the heads of all international organizations in which the United Stales participates, American nationals must satisfy the provisions of Executive Order 10422 as regards loyalty and security. You will understand that must of the Specifics pro and eon on in.liters of this soil are classified and that Security Regulations prevent my discussion. Page 19
