Council Says OSC President
Supporting Fascist Textbook
President Strand of Oregon State college is the victim of a plan
to discredit liim in this state, according to a story in the OSC Daily
The story began in August when Strand received a letter from
Merwin Hart, president of the National Economic council in New
York. Hart condemned Tarshis’ “Elements of Economics,” a new
text at Oregon State, as Fascist propoganda, a book reputedly con
taining many lies.
Strand replied that although he knew little of the text in question
except for the standing of its author, a professor at Stanford, he
knew Merwin Hart and company by reutation and that their “. . . .
condemnation of a boo kis about the best boost it could have. . .a
greater insult to education has never come to my attention.”
He explained that he was well acquainted with charges made
by John R. Carlson, contemporary critic, in his book “The Plotters”
which indicates Hart’s connection with subversive activities.
Hart countered in a letter chastizing the President for defending
a book he had yet to read. He claimed he had received a judgement
against Carlson for statements made in “The Plotters.” “Your let
ter is so interesting . . . I am taking the trouble to send a copy of
the correspondence to each member of State Board of Higher Edu
cation.” Hart said.
...“Elements of Economics,” published in the late spring of 1947 is
in the libraray of the economics departement of the University of
Oregon but is not now used in classes. In addition to Oergon State,
the text is at present in use in about 14 other colleges in the country.
