SUNDAY, JULY 18, 1954 The Daily Herald is dedicated to serving the interests of Utah County, presenting the news impartially, promoting all worthy projects, and' serving as an independent vehicle for the free expression of opinions on public questions. Foundations Probe Fails To Meet High Standards From the start, the Reece committee inquiry into the philanthropic foundations has provided the country with a perfect example of how not to conduct a congressional investigation. Recently, Chairman B. Carroll Reece of Tennessee suspended public hearings, and the investigation will now presumably be concluded in executive session. This alone is no cause for concern. What does seem quite unfair is that in this case of the 12 witnesses heard in public, nine attacked the foundations on one ground or another. Only one spoke for them. ' For the committee to say that the foundations can submit written statements and testify in private obviously is no defense of this procedure. It violates the most elemental notions of balance. Perhaps nothing better should have been expected of a committee which at the outset permitted a key staff official to state a series of damaging, if cloudy, concliK sions-jn criticism of the foundations. Evidently the Reece group has been guided all along by the twisted version of the old law of the' West: "Let's give 'em a fair trial and hang 'em." There has been no sign the committee majority is interested in anything but "convicting' 'the foundations of vaguely defined offenses against the national welfare and safety. Witnesses appear to have been chosen for their willingness to assail the foundations rather than for their thoroughgoing, objective knowledge of these organizations. The foundations have contributed mightily to the scientific and educational development of this country. They have done much to enlarge popular understanding of the basic problems of living in many places. They cannot be tarred ,as "subversive plotters" simply because they face the realties of the modern world. Reece and his supporters seem to feel that to gain a clean bill the foundations should have denied the existence of change—or tried to prevent it. Of course, the men who run the foundations are human. They make mistakes, like everyone else. They are not above investigation. But they were investigated, in 1952. The only difficulty seems to be that Reece did not like the findings, because they were not sufficiently critical of the foundations. Through no fault of two members, Rep. Wayne Hays and Gracie Pfost, the Reece committee thus far has failed to discharge properly any part of that responsibility. No fair-minded citizen can have any confidence in its'one-sided, blunderbuss assault-on the foundations —loosely styled as an "investigation."

The M.D. A physician I know _and ad- degree should entitle " mire has a son and a daughter, without any state board or other both in college. The son is com ipleting eight years of col- ,ege work and 'expects to receive his M.D. [this month. His dad has been waiting the day ,when the boy ,will finish his internship and _- __ return home to Dr. Brady become a partner and gradually take full charge of the practice. But that's not the son's idea •t all. Dad has been practicing about a third of a century and it seems to me he has 'cept well abreast of the new developments of proven value in prrctice. Poor dad now finds that the boy has been indoctrinated by the more prominent members of the medical school faculty, who imbued the neophytes with the idea of entering immediately upon special practice and not wasting their precious time on general practice. Without putting the thought in words it is plainly evident that the boy regards dad as perhaps fit to get by with medical trivia but that would be no career for him. Perhaps the medical school instructors do not put the thought in words either, but they do thoroughly convince the tyros under their tutelage that it is just not good business investing ten years in training and then electing to dawdle in general medicine. After all, when a doctor gets his license from the state be may practice any branch of medicine or surgery he prefers—and the Y. W. public expects to pay a specialist three or four times as much as an "ordinary" doctor would charge for the same service. Here in paradise these days it is hard to find a general practitioner among the trick -pecial- ists and kli-NICK racketeers, a situation that worsens from year to year. *- ., ... , • i - examination to- practice general only.

Questions may foe sent to him at 7008 Hillcrest Place, Chevy Chase, Md. WASHINGTON, July 18—Mrs. F. T., of Colorado Springs, Colo., as as well as numerous other readers, asks why President Eisenhower permits Vice President Nixon to make so many and such sharp attacks on the Roosevelt- Truman-Acheson foreign policy.

No wonder the graduates are reluctant to become mere family doctors. Many Y.W. patrons of special- ism are spenders — you know, easy come, easy go — and they have no scruples about paying a trick specialist of kli-NICK racketeer $50 or $100 for a service an honest doctor would render for $10 or $20. You see, the poor souls imagine a doctor who holds himself out as a specialist must be a better doctor or else the government wouldn't allow him to put on such a front. Under a statute now in effect in California the state will license only bona fide clinics — where physicians examine and treat patients without charge, before medical students. QUESTIONS & ANSWERS AH Eyes Are Blue at Birth Well, now you have made a statement which I'm sure is incorrect. You stated that "all babies are born with blue eyes." I have four daughters.

Answer: It is extremely difficult, from a personal and political viewpoint, for a President to censor or to suppress such an import- jant figure as the No. 2 man, and the presiding officer of the Senate. Ike takes the position, so I understand, that the Californian speaks as an individual rather than a Party spokesman. It is difficult to understand the distinction. * * * INTELLIGENT POLITICS—It is, of course, good politics, and Nixon's attitude represents that oi many Republican members of Congress as well as millions who voted for the GOP ticket in 1952.

Asked if he had any excuse for his speeding, the motorist replied: "I thought I was being followed." He was right. A patrol car was chasing him at a 70-mile-an-hour clip at the time and eventually caught him. Traffic Judge Madge Taggart followed up Balestrieri's story with a $50 fine.

ROBERTSON jby the ghost of Dean Acheson. I am thinking seriousiy of trying ^i^Ike's ^domestic program to get my prophet's license re- mer away at . They can admit that newed. One of my predictions business is buzzing, but the Eisen- seems to have come true^-or is by way of becoming. When the baseball season opened I made bold to claim in this column (which is not to be confused with the excellent sport column done by my friend Ray Schwartz) that the man to watch was a Negro boy named Willie Mays of the New York Giants. As of July Fourth Willie was burning up the league with his dash and color and was ahead of Babe Ruth's record for home runs at the same period when Babe made his great record of. sixty. I'm not predicting Willie will break Babe's record, but he is putting some spirit into my favorite game because he loves it in the same way the great Babe did. Of course I feel fairly secure in m y prediction that Joe McCarthy will be our last president. Since we Americans have enshrined conformity in all things as our national fetish, who better than Joe can be found to use terroristic methods necessary to stop people from thinking except as we are told. Mr. Robertson hower theory that if the top boys are rolling in dough the little fellows can pick up ample crumbs just isn't working out. A few million are out of work, and that makes the unemployed conscious of their own insecurity. And oa every hand they see the Eisenhower administration striving to help those who already have too much. It just doesn't fit well with the poor — and after all they have the most votes Ike's income tax revision was for the benefit of the upper brackets. He has antagonized the farmers by telling them in so many words that the only solution for their ailments is smaller incomes. Yet he has encouraged those who supply their wants to raise prices. The president .gave avay billions of tidelands oil to men who were already millionaires, and he has done nothing about the outrageous oil depletion tax exemptions which has and still is creating a lot of Texas millionaires who are using their money to promote Senator McCarthy, and consequently control the policies of the country. For many years elections have been decided by the. soc-Mlcd liberal vote. Certainly Ike owed his election to them. His attacks on TVA, which put the Southern states on their feet, and the sympathetic ear he always gives the private power interests has antagonized practically every liberal in the country. The Republican party has been split in twain by So this one is practically a cinch, unless Americans miraculously remember that we used to have a fine time being _ _ ., - , T „„..,, „ . different-from other people and!
