Transcript ■HHBBNbHHHHHI ■■■■HH Report Division, P. O. Box 1055, Indianapoli (liana. Once again we arc indebted to Mr. tore Solimine (see Readers Report, FeS ary, L956, Facte Forum Wicv, 7 Hench^ St., Boston information. Salvr 13, Mass.. tor furnishing t1" How the Fund Can Serve Our Republic 1 )a\ id Lawrence's column (Washington Evening Star, January 5), forwarded to us b) a reader, suggests a manner in which the Fund tor tlit_- Republic may redeem itseli and meet the argument ot its critics that the S14 million fund originalk donated to it l>> the Ford Foundation tor "education" on American principles ol government lias not been used tor that purpose. "Only materials that tend to show thai the Communist party is merely a political party," writes David Lawrence, " - not a conspiracy directed by a foreign government — and also booklets that tend to minimize the problem ot 'security risks' have thus tar Ween distributed with the Ford money. "Now, however," he continues, "the sub- eiiinniittee ot the Senate Judiciary Committee which hits been investigating the whole internal security problem has issued a 100- page Handbook for Americans [which is being reprinted in Fads Forum Xctt ,\ starting on Page 2 ot this issue]. It tells how the Communist party works. This pamphlet can hardly have a wide circulation, as there is no fund in Congress to scud out millions of copies to the citizen--." Mr. Lawrence points out that the Fund for the Republic could prove its impartiality and disinterestedness by obtaining the booklets at cost from the Government 1'rinting Office, and sending to every school and college and to every member of every university faculty' and to every writer, every school teacher and every clergyman in tlie countr) as well as to members of all civic and fraternal organizations. "Certainly." he concludes, "the idea ought to appeal to Paul Hoffman. Chairman of the Studchaker Corporation, who is Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Fund for the Republic and a fair-minded man with a long experience in public service." (Editor's Note: Farts Forum News, too. would be happy to supply Mr. Hoffman with thi' necessary reprints for this purpose at nominal cost.) The Block the Chip Came From Mrs. Edna Gielicz, 8205 Second Ave.. Englewood, California, has sent us an article reprinted in the public interest by the Educational News Service, Box 112, Fullerton, California (copies of which may be obtained from them lor l()c each plus stamped, self- addressed legal-size envelope, or twelve copies tor one dollar, postpaid to one address'. This article, "The \\11lerican Heritage' Project," b\ Jo llindman. is Iroin the National Republic magazine, November, 1955, and deals with the American Heritage Project being fostered by the American Library .Association. "The Ford Foundation," the article states, "through its adjunct Fund lor Adult Education, supplies the mone) that mi stains the American Heritage Project nationally; t>ut each project locall) enjoys Ford patronage for onl) a limited length ot time, after which unsuspecting taxpayers are burdened with the bill." One group meeting outlined Was asked b\ the project leader to consider the effect of freedom oi speech in relation to the decision handed down b> the court in the case of Dennis et <</ vs. The United States [Eugene Dennis, one-time Communist party Leader, who was tried with ten other leading Communists, Judge Harold Medina presiding — See article On Page 2 of this issue). Ignoring the majority opinion on this case, the leader asked that the minority opinion be read — then asked. "Now what do you think of that! In a COUntr) where freedom ol speech is guaranteed by the Constitution, people are being put in jail merely for 'meeting in each other's houses and discussing books.'** Included is a chart entitled "ADULT- erated EDUCATION, Ford Foundation Style m die Los Angeles, California, area," as well as a chart outlining Ford Foundation activities. This project is in it-, tilth >ear of ALA- sponsored activity, operating from headquarters at 50 East Huron Street, Chicago. Mrs. Gielicz writes, "I prayerfully hope that you can bring this to the attention of >our readers. It would be interesting to hear from people who have participated, or are participating, so that the nationwide picture could be obtained. ' She adds: "Your readers could help by furnishing additional documentation to Jo Hind- man, author of the article, at S920 Second We., Inglcwood 1, California." h ACLUism Americanism? If you think it is, your answer will be Acs" to the following statements, which are included in a recent questionnaire circulated by the American Civil Liberties Union: "Government employees accused of disloyalty should have the right to know the sources of information against them and to cross-examine their accusers." "Any private individual should have the right to criticize an) government or government official anywhere in the world." "lists oi government employees' security should be confined to sensitive positions involving military, atomic or international affairs." If you agree with ACLU, you will also, according to the questionnaire, answer "No" to these statements: "Everyone who claims the privilege against self-incrimination when asked il he is a Communist must be one." "Congress should investigate political beliefs anil associations in order to determine whether they are 'un- American.'" "The government is justified in bailing temporary foreign \ isitors because of then political principles." "Public school and college teachers should be required to sign a special non-Communist loyalty oath," Perhaps your answers to these questions will help you determine whether your brand of Americanism agrees with that of ACLU. Sfeps Toward a New Birth of Freedom — American Legion Style The National Americanism Commission of the American Legion has published, as a part ot its educational program, numerous pamphlets which have been purchased b> various American Legion Posts and distributed to schools as a community service.
