October 1954
New Republic;10/4/54, Vol. 131 Issue 14, p2
This article presents information on several socio-political issues of the U.S. Unanimous condemnation by the Watkins Committee will hang over Senator Joseph McCarthy for the rest of his life. It will be part of every appraisal from now on. The report's phrases will be weighed and debated, but there they are; they will make it hard for him to run his committee next year, supposing Republicans still control. Scientists are intellectuals, and that is probably another reason for the current distrust of them. U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower jibed at "intellectuals" and got a big laugh. The anti-intellectual know-nothing movement in his Administration has gone far: first disruption of the State Department, then attacks on teachers, librarians and preachers; now there are reins on the scientists, particularly foreigners.
