“Mr. Dodd, all of us here at the policy-making level have had experience, either in the O.S.S. or the European Economic Administration, with directives from the White House. We operate under those directives here. Would you like to know what those directives are? [Dodd, replying in the affirmative, Gaither continued: ] The substance of them is that we shall use our grant-making power so to alter our life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.” (H. Rowan Gaither, as reported by Norman Dodd, the director of the Congressionally established Reece Committee to investigate subersive activities of the tax exempt foundations. 1953.)
