Alleged "Americanism."

January 1924
America;1/12/1924, Vol. 30 Issue 13, p307
The author ponders on the statement of Columbia University President Nicholas Murray Butler regarding his stand against the Sterling-Reed bill or the Federal Department of education bill that proposes the control of the local schools by the Federal Government. He further explains that an established Department of Education would be given an annual Federal subsidy of $100,000,000 to meet requirements provided by the Congress. He stresses on the unconstitutionality of the bill, which contradicts the fight against invasions of a centralized government.
