Focuses on the American academic world. Discussion of the chief contribution of the American academic world toward the defeat of fascism; Statement that one trouble with the academic world is that while it endorses democracy and, in fact, dotes upon it; Need for protecting academic freedom is, more often than not, speaking of the need for defending a job; Announcement of the Department of Commerce regarding making a state secret of the exact nature of all the U.S. exports and imports, is a profound blow at academic freedom; Fact that a true loss of academic freedom, beside which the chivying of an individual professor by an arrogant prexy is comparatively unimportant; Opinion that one waits for the first sign of that great internal debate on how to marshal the U.S. strength against fascism.
