DR. ELIOT PAYORS
Harvard Professor Sayi Rockefeller
Donations Have Influence Over
Colleges and Universities
WORKMEN EAT TOO MUCH MEAT
NEW YORK, Jan. 29. Rockefel
ler donations to educational Institu
tions have influenced tbe policies of
presidents of universities and col
leges In many instances, but tbe in
fluence bas always bees good, said
Charles W. Eliot, president emeritus
of Harvard university, today at the
federal industrial commission's in
quiry into philanthropic foundations
and the causes of social unrest.
The donations to which be refer
red were made by the general edu
cation board. Dr. Eliot said. As an
Instance he cited John D. Rockefel
ler's offer In 1908 to furnish .$1.
000,000 to Harvard university if the
university would raise $875,000 ad
ditional. . .
This was before Dr. Eliot, became a
member of the board of managers of
the general education board., The witness
said he applied to the elder Mr. Rocke
feller for aid In the maintenance of new
buildings greeted for the medical school
of Harvard unlveralty4 Starr J. Murphy
of Mr. Rockefeller's personal staff made
an investigation ot tha buildings and the
financial condition of the university, the
witness said. Afterward Dr. Eliot called
upon John D. Rockefeller, jr., and was
told that Mr. Rockefeller, sr., was will
ing to donate $1,000,000. conditional upon
the unlvcrMty'a raising $S75,000. Dr. Eliot
said he had not hoped to obtain as large
Dr. Eliot said he was connected with
the general education board and other
philanthropic foundations established by
Andrew Carnegie and Mr. Rockefeller.
Ho thought the practice or Interlocking
the directorates of such foundations was
a good one.
He thought that the) general education
board had given $200,000,000 to education
Stockholders In a corporation, Dr. Eliot
testifed, were not responsible for labor
conditions, he thought, unless their at
tention was called forcibly to some par
Dr. Eliot said he believed that legisla
tion providing for uniform minimum wage
schedules and working hours wss a bad
thing. "Conditions are different Itf all In
dustries," said he. "What would be good
for one body of workers would be bad
One reason why workers found It so
hard to mske their wages go as far aa
they should. Dr. Eliot declared, was be
cause they bought and ate too much
In no case where the General Education
board had made a donation, so far as
the witness knew, had the board In
vestigated the methods of a 'university,
college or school or Its curriculum. There
was only one condition attached to the
board's endowments; that condition was
that no part ot the money should be
spent In teaching theology. The board
made this condition. 'Dr. Elliot said, be
cause it did not care to be placed in the
light of assisting or supporting auy scot
Dr. Eliot said he believed In organised
labor, but did not believe in the cloaed
shop. Personally he favored placing
labor representatives In boards of di
WUer Tkaa f.everwmeat.
To be possessed ot $100,(KO.OOO as a
"grave misfortune," Dr. Eliot said. He
added that If he possessed that sum he
would try to get rid of it. He did not
believe, with Dr. John II. Holmes, that
the government could best turn the
money back to the poo pie. Governments
are not always wise, he asserted, and
foundations ' such as the Rockefeller
foundations could best take care of the
money by giving the 'people education
and bettering their condition. He did not
think that the great foundations
menace. On the contrary, ha believed
that tbev ftrri at benefit la all mn.
kind. The Rockefeller boards and founda
tions, he thought, constituted the most
admirable system of benefitting human
ity the world haa ever known.
In duatria! pesce can ever rome.i he
declared, ao long aa both labjr and
capital employ the "n.ethoda of fight"
they are using now. The panacea was
"Industrial democracy and publicity.'
