Transcript What they're saying . . . about FACTS FORUM Thank you for your fine talk [Senator John Sparkman ] on tin- Fact- Forum program. It is good to know that there are nun in the leadership of our country who can see and think clearly, and jpeak up derisively. Mrs. Km deru k C. Maii r 16 W. Stanton Avenue Baldwin, Long Island. NX I can't imagine a finer honor than to have one's words appear in tlii~ greal magazine. Facts Forum has become the voice For patriotic people all over America who have heen denied the privilege <<\ expressing their pro-American sentiments in so many of the papers and periodicals in our country today. El 1/ \ki;rn l.ii'i'i i i 2414 Pacific \venue San Francisco, California We feel that a study oi both sides <>\ controversial issues i- particular!1) essential for teachers. Facts Forum will simplify and vitalize that task for us. Sister M. Edela klda Vlverno <lollege 3401 South 38th St. Milwaukee, W iscensin I have been looking for a publication oi llii- nature for a long time. Mrs. Albert Irion llnX 267 Fallon. Montana You must he bitterly maligned for the •-land you are taking against socialism and communism, anil you must get terribly discouraged sometimes. Hut. for goodness' sake don't give up the hght . . . there's too much at -take and vou are doing too much g I. Mrs. \Y. II. Di nham 1841 Chestnut Street Abilene, Texas Past history has taught u- many things but Facts Forum really keep- one informed as to what i- happening in our world and country at present. Fur instance, f reall) wasn't adequately informed as to what the Bricker Amendment meant to all the people in this country. Since reading the September issue I really know now and thanks to Facts Forum News. Mrs HLq ,{I , ,- 4519 Alabama Avenue l.\nchburg, Virginia T had my own private laugh the other day and would like to share it with you. I had attended a meeting where world affair-; were discussed and I expressed my opinion as much and as often as discretion permitted. The nexl day an acquaintance called and expressed surprise at how "well informed" I was. It was a pleasure to tell her that Facts Forum News was the -"iirce of my information and to loan her some hack issues. I reali/e,| that your magazine covered most of the important issues, but even I was surprised that it showed up in my conversation. mrs, k. M. Yoi kg 304 Y 11th Street 1' a ' itv. Oklahoma t Conclusion ) Who Is Right About The Fund for the Republic? ance, anel lei describe their condition ;il the present time, the Fund is working with labor unions; it has helped to finanee the radio programs nf the National Citizens Commission for the Public Schools and of the American Friends Service Committee; it has made an expanded version of the television film of Edward li. Murrow's Interview with J. Roberl Oppenheimer available to educational institutions and groups concerned with public affairs; il has assisted Columbia University in the film and publication program of ils Bicentennial, the theme of which was "Man's Right to Knowledge and thi* Free I se Thereof." The Fund has also assisted in the distribution of many publications. A list of these appears in the Appendix.* In order to turn the attention of scholars to problems of special concern to the Fund and to aid those already working in the field, the Fund has established a program of fellowships and grants-in-aid. Thirteen such awards had beer made b) \leiv 31. The name- of recipients eunl the subjects on which thev are working appear in the Appendix.* To dramatize the progress made in upholding civil liberties, the Fund gives prizes to persons, organizations, eiml communities that have distinguished themselves by the stand they have taken. It made two up to May 31, one to the I niversity YWCA of Westw I Village, California, for the maintenance of an open platform in the vicinity of the University of California al Los \ngeles; and the other to the town nf Wavcrlv. Iowa, for the efforts of lhe community on behalf of a Negro Air Force captain ami liis family. Two competitions in llie field nf television have lee-en inaugurated. The first, which was announced in February, called fnr new scripts nn subjects nf interesl In iln- Fund, flic Fund will try i" have iln' besl nf them produced in 1955-56. The other competition will honor those television programs during the coming sceisnn iheil ileal with ei\il liberties in iln- tim-i effective manner. The Fund has employed television in ei small experimenl on the Pacific Coasl. where short motion pictures of events in llie current history of freedom are supplied tn television newscasters, who appear to welcome them. This venture has been so successful that the Fund is planning to extend it to other parts of the country. In the fall. Herblock, the cartoonist nf The ll ashington Post and Times Herald, will be presented in a fifteen-minute weekly television series with the aid of the Fund. THE FUTURE A majority of the projects mentioned above were started within the lasl twelve months. Many of them are just gelling underway. Some have nol even reached thai stage: ihey were approved ley iln- Board nf Directors eil ils meeting ihis month. Only two or three completed lei-ks can now lie pointed lo as indications of the kind of work lhe Fund will do and the degree of success it may In- expected to have. By the time of ihe next reporl appraisal should be easier. I can say after one year in office that llie determination of ihe Trustees of the Ford Foundation io establish the Fund seems justified hy the work it is doing. \n oilier organization appears to have lln- flexibility or the resources lo make lhe impression in lhe field that the Fund should be able to make. Although in some particulars lhe atmosphere is better than il was five years ' ago, the misunderstanding of civil lib- iilies, the indifference to them, and the violations of them, lo which we too easily grow accustomed, arc slill such as to give cause For alarm. These hard-won rights are the distinguishing characteristic of the Western tradition; they are the deepest values in American life. Vmerica would be unrecognizable williniil freedom of speech, freedom of the piia~. freedom of religion, freedom of association, and the freedom to differ: withoul due process of law and the equal protection of the laws; withoul the conviction thai all men are created equal and are entitled to equality of opportunity. Withoul these there would be no hope for the American Dream. The Fund for the Republic stands for these fundamental freedoms. It is a symbol of the vitality of these freedoms and of their significance today. •EDITOR'S NOTE: The tables which accompanied Mi.
