Call for Courage
Re "The Danger Signals" in TIME, April 13: what is deplorable in the present state of American education is not the alleged threat of the loss of the teachers' and students' right to discuss controversial subjects, but that they are so easily frightened into a state of abject submission. If men of the nature of McCarthy can paralyze the whole system of education . . . then we might well forfeit our rights and give the whole thing back to the Indians . . . What is happening to American guts?
