RND/ To consider “Beginning Science” – a children’s book, native, romantic and sexist, officially approved by the Eisenhower’s Military-Industrial-Scientific-Complex.
The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

– Dwight D. Eisenhower, Military-Industrial Complex Speech, 1961
