    HERBERT HOOVER NOT
PRO-ENGLISH, SAYS
COLLEGE CLASSMATE
Former Food Administrator's
Americanism Upheld by
Dean H. D. Sheldon
“Herbert Hoover is not pro-English,
as charged by Senator Reed, unless
he has changed since 1912,” said Dr.
H. D. Sheldon, Dean of the school of
education, referring to the attack
made by the senator recently against
Hoover. Reed made numerous state
ments in which he tried tc* show that
Hoover had decided leanings toward
the English, due to his residence in
London for a number of years, and
that Hoover did not know the names
of the parties in this country upon
his return here.
Dr. Sheldon made a trip to England
in 1912 to study the English school
system^ as a member of the Univer
sity of Pittsburgh. While in London,
he visited Hoover, who told him of his
views in regard to various phases of
English life. Hoover, according to
Dr. Sheldon, did not like the caste
system in English social life. Lon
don, he said, was a bad place to bring
up children, for he wanted them where
they would be able to give, as well
as to receive, more hard knocks.
Hoover’s political views were also
critical, said Dr. Sheldon. At the
time of his visit, Lloyd-George was
Chancellor of the Exchequer in Eng
land. Hoover stated to Dr. Sheldon
that he was the only official in the
English service who seemed to have
the interests of the common people
at heart. This attitude was taken
by Dr. Sheldon to indicate that Hoover,
■wealthy, had not changed from the
Hoover he^ knew as a student at
Stanford University, where he worked
his way through college.
Dr. Sheldon and Hoover were friends
at Stanford. Hoover was member of
the 1895 graduating class and Dr.
Sheldon finished a'!»year later. The
student body treasury was in debt at
one time but by rare business ability,
Hoover managed to put it on its feet.
Dr. Sheldon recalls another time when
Hoover brought himself before the
school. The Stanford baseball team
had been on a tour, and some mem
bers of the squad had committed some
offenses that were a disgrace to them
selves and the University. Hoover
undertook the investigation of the
case, pushed it through and secured
the expulsion of the offenders.
