Daniel Webster The Statesman orator who founded the American Platform and became the Grandfather of the nation's oldest trade association, the I.P.A. Approved 00300320006-1 Approved For Release 2004/10/13 : CIA-RDP88-01315ROO0300320006-1 Approved F o History of the International Platform Association Daniel Webster, the most famous orator in Ameri- can history, Secretary of State under three presidents, the lawyer who changed American history by winning the famous Dartmouth College case, made nis greatest contribution to America in 1826 during the presidency of John Quincy Adams. He helped found the first "Lyceum" in Milbury, Massachusetts and launched the most effec- tive medium for influencing public opinion any nation has ever had, the tens of thousands of audiences in thousands of cities and towns that comprise the Ameri- can Lecture Platform. It has never been as powerful as it is now and its influence is growing daily. Webster's idea spread so rapidly that five years later the AMERICAN LYCEUM ASSOCIATION was formed under his aegis to unite the various units that had sprung up all over the nation. The thousands of statesmen, politicians, and busi- nessmen who have formulated U. S. public and private opinion over the last one hundred forty-five years owe _ their influence and contribution largely to these audi- ences of millions of Americans that have, since 1826, been set up all over our nation eager and ready to hear them and be influenced by their theories and arguments. The greatest single impetus to the growth of the "Lyceum" resulted from efforts to schedule an American lecture tour for Charles Dickens, the English author. His representative had contacted a Boston journalist, James Redpath, who established the first lecture bureau in America one hundred and three years ago. This first lecture bureau presented such speakers and concert artists as Mark Twain, Ralph Waldo Emer- son, Julia Ward Howe, Josh Billings, Henry Ward Beech- er, P.T. Barnum, and other leaders in the political, busi- ness, entertainment, and concert fields of those days. The International Lyceum Association, founded in September 1903 took over where the American Lyceum Association left off and in 1952 was reincorporated under its present name as THE INTERNATIONAL PLATFORM ASSOCIATION. It is the oldest international association in the United States, going back in its ancestry over one hundred forty-five years. It has always been the club and sounding board of those interested in the power of the spoken word and has had on its membership rolls an appreciable percentage of all the great names of our American heritage. Those early guests plus later IPA members such as Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, William Howard Taft, Herbert Hoover, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, William Jennings Bryan, Nelson Rockefeller, Carl Sandburg, Harry Truman, J. Edgar Hoover, Hugh - Downs, Woodrow Wilson, "Dear Abby" Van Buren, David Brinkley, Victor Borge, Art Buchwald, Lowell Thomas, Barry Goldwater Otto Preminger, Winston Churchill, Ralph Nader, Jack Anderson, Dr. Walter Alvarez, Averell Harriman, President Gerald Ford, Hubert Humphrey, Betty Furness, Art Linkletter, Alice Roosevelt Longworth, Walter Lippman, Rex Harrison, Hal Holbrook, Drew Pear- son (and a host of others in the fields of statesmanship, business, oratory, the theatre, the movies, and entertain- Release 2004/10/13 : CIA-RDP88-01315ROO0300320006-1 Approved For Release 2004/10/13 : CIA-RDP88-01315FI000300320006-1 ment) have bequeathed a portion of their greatness to their associates, living and dead, in what our members feel is the most interesting organization in our nation. We have members who have been coming to our meet- ings for over fifty years. Theodore Roosevelt and all succeeding U. S. Presi- dents have been IPA members, as have a good percent- age of the most influential members of the U. S. Senate and many state governors, cabinet officers, and foreign ambassadors accredited to the United States who are on IPA rolls. Each year hundreds of the top political figures and orators of our nation, the Platform people who belong to the IPA, appear before colleges, forums, school assem- blies, conventions, concerts, executive and women's clubs, service clubs, and industrial association audi- ences. Anywhere and everywhere that audiences of any kind convene there are IPA members not only on the Platform but in the audience, functioning as program chairmen or just listening. IPA President and Membership Chairman Lowell Thomas has said, No other medium can compare with the Platform." One privilege of membership is the opportunity to attend the annual five-day assemblage in Washington, D.C. where the most outstanding personalities and pro- grams seen anywhere in this country are presented in an atmosphere where, with only IPA members being ad- mitted, an extraordinary volume of top level "off-the- record" conversation takes place. Here the top states- men of both parties, time-honored orators, TV, radio, and newspaper personalities and celebrities from many fields find memories. Hopeful beginners find counsel and help and patrons and program chairmen find new talent and everyone finds enjoyment. The top echelon of our nation in many different fields meet for five days of fun, recreation, fellowship and reunion, and genuine relaxation after a strenuous en- during friendships workshops previews, admPation one elicit the other. THE INTERNATIONAL PLATFORM ASSOCIATION is not only the professional association of the American program chairman and of those who belong to organiza- tions that put on programs for their members, but in fact of all persons interested or engaged in the lecture, con- cert, TV, radio, newspaper, and entertainment fields. It is the organization of those interested in the power of ora- tory and of the spoken word. For over a hundred and forty years IPA member- ship has included many of the most distinguished men and women of our nation in every field. If one thing about the IPA can be pinpointed as most valuable to its unusual membership, it is the fruitful and lasting friendships de- veloped at high level across ordinarily inaccessible pro- fessional and geographic boundaries. Membership is limited to persons recommended for membership whose applications are approved by our Membership Committee and by our Board of Governors.

Jaworski and Borge demonstrate absolute pitch at the 1974 IPA Convention. from Dan Tyler Moore The pictures and articles in this Convention edition of Talent Maga- zine reflect the scope and timli- ness of the speeches at the 142nd Annual Congress of the Interna- tional Platform Association which was held in Washington, D. C. July 29 - August 2, 1974. As space permits these topics which will be the theme of speeches all across America and indeed around the world in the coming year, will be printed verbatim. The 1300 people who came from every corner of America, and some other countries, who attended are the pivots of community life in America - the Program Chair- men, Bureau Managers, and Club President who make these five dramatic days' in Washington a guidepost for Platform perform- ances they will book before their own audiences in the next year. While the excitement of the IPA Convention is incidental to the nitty gritty of placing the great issues of the day in perspective for the man on the platform and the managers and committees that keep him there, the Convention for the past two years has been the high spot of Washington's summer season and our members will be telling their grandchildren about our recent Convocation where government, big business and public trust officials laid their wares on the doorstep of public opinion. Leon Jaworski and Victor Borge were given the International Plat- form's highest honors. The Special Prosecutor, unlike Henry Kissin- ger's to the point speech last sum- mer (Reston of the N.Y. Times called it the best foreign policy speech of the year) carefully avoid- ed Watergate and called on young America to lead the way to greater accountability in a free society.

Always looking at, both sides of every question The IPA invited Dr. V. P. Bond, M.D., Brookhaven National Laboratory to speak on this subject in opposition to Dr. Sternglass at the Convention. A summary of his speech at the 1974 Convention is on page 34. In this issue Dr. Dixy Lee Ray, head of the Atomic Energy Com- mission takes a look at the Nu- clear Power question and states that by 1980 per capita, demand for -electricity could double our 1970 consumption, and minimizes the `danger" factor of reliance on nuclear power to meet this need. Speaking on two fronts simul- taneously, Z. D. Bonner, Chairman, Gulf Oil Corporation, stressed that cooperation is the s:ingle most im- portant criteria needed for the country to reach a reasonable de- gree of self-sufficiency in our ener- gy needs by 1980. Charging that political rather than. economic de- cisions dominate under govern- ment regulation, Mi Bonner point- ed out that the total capital needs of the oil industry are somewhere between $600 billion, and a trillion dollars through 1985. He put this in perspective for our listeners at the Convention by stating that the entire cost of the Apollo ]Project --- from inception through the moon- landing --- was in the range of $2.5 billion.

By Joseph C. Bauer There is a great deal of satis- faction after accomplishing a dif- ficult job. The feeling that I have after the Creative Programming Institute is terrific! I must say that it was one of the most enjoyable (and hectic) activities in which I've ever been involved. To all those who attended the Creative Programming Institute, participants and panelists, I must say `Thank you" most sincerely for making it all work. The secret of success is always in communication, and the cooper- ation and enthusiasm I had from every person involved was really what allowed the institute to be such a smash. For months ahead of time messages were flying back and forth across the United States by telephone and letter, and it was a great feeling to have it all come together at the Convention. Many times the platform business can be discouraging, but the com- ments from all the delegates were so gratifying it seems we've made history. A big "Thank you" also goes to all those who took the time and trouble sending me let- ters of congratulation and grati- tude. The most common complaint during any convention is that the time invested in workshops doesn't return a big enough dividend. Seems most people feel a lack of solid information and too much rambling rhetoric is the main in- gredient in most "workshops". However, the enormous amount of solid and practical information provided by our panelists, certain- ly gave everyone more creative and usable ideas than could pos- sibly be assimilated. The red C. P.

Hall, Chairman Convention Previews July 29 through August 2 (1974 IPA Convention days in Washing- ton, D. C.) was a wow of a week on all counts. One of the least publicized features of any IPA Convention and one of the most enjoyable is the after hours REN- DEZVOUS (10 p.m. 'til ... ) where a stage and all the trappings of a nightclub setting act as a catalyst for talent - some new, some spe- cial, and all vicing for the honor of walking away with new con- tracts and/or new performance heights. Here the Agents, Talent Buyers, new talent, special attrac- tions, and Program Chairmen meet one another in a relaxed, sociable and friendly atmosphere. The Park Ballroom festivities on Monday evening where Dan Tyler Moore traditionally welcomes the guests and invites Jeane Dixon to cavort with her stars was packed with new entertainment which had been, in the case of Miss Louisiana anyway, a part of the opening day special attractions. Sparking the RENDEZVOUS hours all week were many splendid performers, .Governor Don Wolfe evening Rendez- vous MC taking prophetess Jeane Dixon up to the podium. and the notable RUDY VALEE show took us right back to the huge Park Ballroom to accommo- date the unusually large turnout of the IPA membership. Many of the professionals involved in open- ing day festivities were judges for the new talent competition (see top 5 on page 58). For further in- formation about the following artists please write to them di- rectly: BOB CAHLMAN and his EXITS & ENTRANCES gave our Conven- tioneers something they had never seen before and something they will remember and talk about for many moons. Bob presented a vast array of authentic original cos- tumes worn by Hollywood and Broadway Stars, many of which brought misty tears of nostalgia to some of our members who could `remember when'. The costumes were fantastic in themselves, and modelled by the Gorgeous Gals . . . and Minute Men ... from among our Conven- tioneers who volunteered, made Prophetess Jeane Dixon having her hand properly kissed by leading tenor of Metropolitan Opera Company, William DuPre. the show.

Everything went well together despite the wide range of tech- niques. When a well-known and good artist corners you to say nice things about. the show., completely unsolicited, you know that this is aa_ fins' exhbition_ Compliments such as, "There are a. number of quality works here, 11 am really enjoying this show" "Many of these artists I have not heard of, but they interest nie." Emil Wed- dige is the one who believed he could hang, all members work and still have a beautiful exhibition as tang as cac_n member would send his best work, work that the artist was proud of. The artists program included ilerbert Sarborn (Library of Con- ,r t ss) who spoke on Prints and C'otnrs_ Through his slides he traced the evolution of print, making. Some of the prints in the Library's collection are so old and fragile they cannot be moved. Only in slides can we appreciate them. He spoke of knowing Weddige's work and on having bought Weddige's lithographs for the Library's col- lection 20 years ago- Karl ' y in he week Emil Wed- dige had given a tall: with an Indiana IIniiversitv's film showing the process at lithography includ- ing Weddige in his studio working with his press. The various steps needed for a multicolored print is an exacting but rewarding task. The tour to the Freer Gallery was another nteresting event. Our guide pointed out early Chinese ceramics and bronzes showing how to tell the earlier ones from the later. When we asked our guide to speak to us at the Sheraton next year, his answer was a firm, "No, the terms of Mr. F'reer's will specifies we may not remove trea- sures from this building nor even show the slides of them". Some IPA'ers may want to repeat this pilgrimage next year. Agnes Brodie, one of the Art Show jurors, gave us a demon- stration of Silk Screening. It looked so easy, the final product was a clear cut abstract, in two colors. As different the screen looked from its result as the caterpillar is to the butterfly. Another talk was given by Gene Baro, the art critic of the Wash- ington Post, in Today's Art Market. In spite of the frosty atmosphere of the airconditioning, he held his audience in rapt attention tell- ing of the unpredictability of thi' taste of today's buyer. Domenico Facet, President of the Audubon Club gave a demonstra tion oif clay portraiture. He is a wizard in making a clump of clay turn into a life-like head in. 30 minutes. Lowell Thomas was a great model, he posed on a stool calm and serene while several hundred people watched and the band played on --- quietly and with respect for artist and subject. -James Winer, sculptor and arch itectural designer showed slides o; his shopping centers where the, usual qualities of stability, eri.clo sure and permanence are modi fied. Sidewalks laid ripple on long pose, chimneys are built as if they are decomposing at the base. He is a true iconoclast always search ing new ways to make urban neighborhoods less pompous and fenced in. Rita Soloway, an able portrait painter, helped raise funds for art awards by sketching portraiits Chances were sold and the winners posed on the spot for a signed sketch by Rita. Admirers and k::ib- bitzers watched the magic as if by Polaroid. She did a gallant number of sketches. About the auction: Too many activities -- we did not have the proper crowd - few works were sold. There were lovely things'that sold too low. Other very nice things that were never put. up for bidding were returned to the donors -- an auction during a lull is our best chance, if lull there could be.

One happy item -- Glee Martin and Max Fenhy were married September 7th. They had a small wedding at the Zion Lutheran Church in Cadillac Michigan. Max is a Conservation Officer.

New talent is screened by booking agents and by the hundreds of fathers and mothers in our audience of IPA members. "Their reaction heavily influences the type of talent who will address your chil- dren and your children's children. The convention previews are the largest single source of new talent for school assembly, club and celebrity programs." The power of the spoken word is tremendous. It is the face-to-face con- frontation among the millions that molds public opinion, and which determines to a great extent the news that comes out through the television tube or over the network wires of our newspapers. The late Drew Pearson, prominent if controversial newspaper analyst and col- umnist, speaking of this great influence once said, "The effect of such conversa- tion is enormously enhanced if one participant is respected and can state that he or she actually saw and heard a certain national figure face to face, or even talked to a person who saw him." Pearson further said, "The U.S., where everything is packaged for convenience of the consumer, is the only nation that has not only packaged this critically im- portant high level talk, and influence, and rumor mechanism, but has even pack- aged a massive trade association with close to 10,0(K) (the number today will greatly exceed that number) members to effectuate it." In 1969, when Drew Pearson made the above statements, he estimated that more than 65,000 appearances before audiences emerge every year throughout the U.S. out of the IPA Annual Congress and its membership. It is safe to say that many more appearances are every year through IPA sponsored activity. The highlight of each year's activities, the Annual Convention, is held in Washington, D.C. at the Sheraton Park Hotel in late July and early August. Atten- dance is limited to IPA members, is well represented and highly publicized. The five-day Convention not only pro- vides the most outstanding personalities and programs to be seen anywhere, but it also presents them in an atmosphere where, with only IPA members being admitted, furnishes a volume of top level "off-the-record" conversation that adds an immense impact to the gathering. There numerous top statesmen, TV, radio and newspaper greats and entertainers and artists who rank high in their professions mingle with the crowd. In the midst of such an awesome as- semblage, the new and unknown members find a never before realized experience, where they find counsel and help, see and talk with people few outsiders are privi- leged to meet, and enjoy themselves thoroughly in many other ways. The latest Annual Convention provided the usual distinguished list of speakers and entertainers. In addition, many social events and workshops were held, where audiences wholly composed of IPA mem- bers, listened, learned and enjoyed the privilege of mingling with such well known men and women. A favorite activity with newer members is the tour of the city. This takes the visitors past Watergate, the White House, Embassy Row and guided tours of Kennedy Center, the Islamic Center and the magnificent new Gothic Cathedral. Chairman for the 1974 tour was Shirley Duncan. To present the program for the entire five days would he beyond the scope of this article.
