"EDUCATION IS POISONED AT
ITS SOURCE," IS TOPIC
New York, Jan. 27. The federal
commission on industrial relations
today took up the charge that "edu
cation is poisoned at its source" by
the great foundations of the country.
When John D. Rockefeller, Jr., re
sumed the stand, Chairman Walsh
continued his series of interroga
tions designed to show that educa
tional institutions that are the bene
ciaries of enormous fortunes are
urged to check the spread of radical
ism in this country.
This has been denied by Rockefel
ler on many occasions, as well as by
Andrew Carnegie, but the charge has
been made to the industrial commis
sion in a series of letters which are
later to be made a part of the record.
In this connection the Rockefeller
position is summed up In his declara
tion made just as he left the stand
last night, when he said:
"I cannot perceive how the views
of the man who gave the money to an
educational institution could ever be
so transmitted to men who benefited
by that Institution, so as to consti
tute a menace to free speech and in
dividual action." '
Walsh today was developing this
line, as it is already evident that he,
at least, has decided that the commis
sion should recommend to congress
the curbing of all foundations by leg
islative restrictions and compelling
annual reports to the legislative body
