I'foblernVj"0 voce' because our great oday — and we can't get away actq t. '"RUM NEWS, February. 1VSS from it — is the world conquest aims of the Kremlin. They are the foe that we are confronted with today. We also have to have in mind that the Communists are able to persuade others in part — and they hold to this very definitely — that a Fascist is anyone who opposes the Communists. There has to be a very clear-cut definition of what we mean by this thing, a Fascist. Mr. Buckley: There are a whole lot of common denominators, of course, between the Fascists and the Communists. They're closer together than they are apart. Mr. Combs: I agree with Bill Buck ley that communism and fascism share a surprising number of principles. They are at the two ends of the political spectrum, but it is sort of a horseshoe so that they are closer together than either is to the middle. During the war, as I recall, communism was denounced simply as Red fascism; and I think that's probably true. But isn't it necessary for us, however, lo make sure in teaching or in discussing these matters that there be a dynamic curriculum or organization of teaching materials and personnel to do it? I think, quite frankly, that we should have such a course if we could put it in the hands of really competent men. PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION (Continued from Page 42) In elaboration of his views as lo the failure of progressive education techniques, Professor Schmidt declared: "We've never been in a greater mess in our lives as a nation. We have a lack of discipline that manifests itself in a wave of juvenile delinquency, in a difficulty in training soldiers for bard discipline of war, in broken homes (one out of five marriages ending that way)—and you say that theology has no place? Of course, I wasn't referring to a fully developed theology in the sense that a theologian would talk about it; I'm talking about respect for God and God-fearingness instead of god- lessness." Professor Schmidt continued, "The question was asked as to which religion should be chosen; I say that's the parents' function." "I don't think education has failed," replied Professor Hodges; "I say the parents have fallen down on their job." In conclusion, Mr. Combs stated: "My principal quarrel with our educational methods is that progressive education does not seem to impose that severity of discipline and that degree of diligence and zeal which alone can develop a well-rounded intellectual man." What they're saying . . . about FACTS FORUM Has Facts Forum gone left? Has it, like the United States Senate, been mildly brainwashed ? Why then did you give Senator McCarthy the worst of it in Sunday's broadcast of January 2? An ocean of propaganda—directed by the Daily Worker and spread throughout the country by the pinkish press and leftist commentators — bullied and shamed and badgered two-thirds of the membership of that august body, the United States Senate, into condemning McCarthy. And they had to comb his record with a fine-tooth comb to find any grounds whatever to condemn him for. This was the same McCarthy who exposed a lot of Communists, fellow travelers, subversives, and Fifth Amendment pinks who were in the State Department, the Army, and the defense plants. In last Sunday's broadcasl you pul McCarthy completely on the defensive and then let him down with a weak defense. You repeated all the lies of the Daily Worker^ the innuendoes of Elmer Davis, and the half- truths of Benton and the New York Times; but you failed to tell of their connections, which would have given the correct color to everything they said. Facts Forum in this instance was about as fair as the Watkins Committee. P.S. "A faint commendation is equal to a condemnation." From a supposed friend, this hurts. You damned McCarthy with faint praise and have caused many of the uninformed to doubt him. On the other hand, if the disgraceful records of his traducers whom you have quoted had been given, it would have put the pinkish tint on all they could say, for they are linked irretrievably with Communist fronts.
