The book to which Deane referred was one called "Building Citi/enship." The doctor was Kay 0. Hughes of Pittsburgh, who wrote it. , ' He was on the pan before a House District of Columbia subcommittee, which is investigating complaints about some of the text books, used in the public schools here. It was Dr. Hughes' second appearance before the committee. .After he had packed his briefcase and gone home the last time. ,the committee made out a list of objections, naming pages and par- .agraphs in the civics book. Committee Chairman A. L. Mill- 'cr of Nebraska wanted to know 'what the author-teacher had done about them. It turned out he had been pretty busy on a rewrite job. ·Take on page 195. There was a picture of Josef Stalin, big as life 'and puffing a pipe. Dr. Hughes 'explained that he and his publishers originally had used the picture along with a brief essay on Communism. He said the essay was intended to teach- the kids a bit about what Communism is like, so they could compare it with our form of government--hoping to goodness they would like ours better. In the next edition of the book they're going to ''leave Joe out of it."" as Dr. Hughes put it. He has inserted instead a description of the Russian idea of democracy, and how wrong it is. That and a few paragraphs about the Taft- Hartley law. ... Says: B*, ,ward'sweep of Communism It has ^^^^^J^^.

Dr. Hughes said he was thinking of yanking out of the next edition of "Building Citi/enship" a picture of Hank Wallace--taken some time back down in Mexico. He said that now his book is under fire he didn't want to have somebody jump up and accuse him of backing Wallace as a presidential candidate. Heaven forbid, he said. He is trying to ride the middle of the road, in politics, foreign affairs and religion. And he said he was more than proud to report that as of now more than 1,000,000 copies of his textbook have been sold.
