Interview with Miss Noack
Here's story behind
smear of Senn teacher
THE Chicago Herald-Amer
foan dropped its Red
smear series against Serai High
School civics teacher, Miss
Emilio Noack, like a sizzling
hot potato.
Last Wednesday, May 26, the
“third of a series of revealing
how pro-Communist ideologies
are being taught in Senn High
School,” written by reporter Hy
Del man, and accompanied by
red banner headlines, became
the last of a series—when the
inside story behind the smear
began to emerge.
Investigation into the Hearst
witch-hunt was being conducted,
by Senn authorities behind
closed doors, but some news
leaked out.

IT IS believed that an adult
employee at Senn, not a teacher,
was behind the smear. This per
son, alleged to be a friend of
Hy Delman, is said to have
cooked up Miss NoackJs “pro-

"I REFUTE all such charges
