There have ben very few foundations which would consciously make a gram lo a known Communist. In facl. with a few notable and tragic exceptions such as the Institute of Pacific Relations, the Marshall Foundation, and the Garland Fund (these last two bavins; losl their l.i\ exemption and being now extinct), we do not know thai any large sums of foundation money have gone directl) into Communist channels. That is not lhe most serious problem which faces those foundation trustees who wish to dei their full fiduciary duty to lhe people whose money, in lhe form of foundation trust funds, they administer. The leakage, the substantial diversion of foundation funds to subversive purposes. ionics clearly through the support of individuals and efforts which are conlrib- ulive to Communist success though not always easily so recognizable. Many individuals have permitted themselves to be seduced into the support of Communist front organizations through negligence and an anxiety to join "progressive and liberal causes. So. the foundations have often, in the social sciences, lent themselves to the support of efforts and causes which weaken our society and create factors of dissidence and disorganization of which lhe Communists are alert to take advantage. We cannot too strongly stale lhat this Committee respects the true liberal and deems him as important t, the proper political functioning of our society as is the conservative. In using the term "liberal" in quotes, we do so to indicate a type of leftist who is the unconscious helper of communism. lie mar be. with the utmost earnestness, a violent and inveterate opponent of communism : but he travels in. ,'/ not under the same direction. The term "fellow traveler" is perhaps too extreme. He may utterly reject revolution in favor of evolution, but the evolutionary change he seeks must be a quick one. and he must hurry to aid in ushering it in. In his anxiety lor the better world of the future, he falls into the error of wishing to destroy before he knows the significance of that with which he wishes to replace. b) i PoW ecome ;l" I bur and I sill' |ll)S I which ided? «■ gon. fa] rofessor ^ following is a letter written to the New York Times l»y Representa Chairman of the House Special Committee to Investigate " ""' l:,l'l'» of the \eu Yor, Pre k Times: duri 0 'at dattons lo I mm the nature of your reporting 'g the proceedings of the "" " ' otntY,-.. r*"'-v.^unigs oi me Special """ tee „f lm, Housf. of Rcprescn. ,: t0 Investigate Tax-Exempt Foun- id the ho ,„ "f which I have le cha not litC?mments- ' conclude that :,„„.. .elv 'hat you would, of you lorjaj r„^™an' a'"' y°UT frequenl edi- ^otA present which to 111! lie II e it to judgment regardin the ^ our editorial d lo my atten- ll is own .... public Ilic facts ;;.^ejuaVdenable i( t0 8rrive al 0f°Dec°f9?! co,""nittee lion and I been cal pressed k8"88 ''"' r""vic'lio" rN" ,vhichd(,resa "UM" cwefly to the canard, has | U"" new8paper in particulai I k,.,;;:;^ - active i„ spreading, thai - Tom havi„„ thoir day in cour ou Have ' bearings of lhe com- to prevent the founda- Kl\ in- |iven the public the false ttnesses ,), ""Pies.; , " "le Public I" I" U, ..V""" refused to let« e to the foundations give tesli- S>~'v the hearings before themselves could pre- '•»Wabl, lhe"? and cl«^d i their case, of t],p .exI>,a"alie.ii of the termination in „ /iWiiigs is to be found in full '"ajorit 1eiU uhich ' tt"a<*ed i itig at y reP°rt of the committee (slarl- '°ry Pa e ^^ '""' '" ''lc int,'0<'uc" 2.
