Vote Funds for Cox Loyalty Probe Committee

Download PDF for this date

A House administration sub-committee has voted to give $75,000 in operating funds to a committee to make a loyalty probe of tax-exempt philanthropic foundations including organizations which deal in race relations and seek to remove prejudice through education.

The sub-committee, which is headed by Rep. E.E. Cox, of Georgia, must have its funds approved by the full administration committee of the House and by the House itself. Members of Congress have warned that this probe might be used against such groups as the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation League and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
