Transcript COLUMNTATOR LAUREATE Lynn Landrum is the highly original columnist—'"columntator" is his word —of the Dallas Morning News. He customarily prefaces his racy prose with a slug of verse. Without anticipating the judgment of posterity it is a safe observation that Columntalor Landrum lives up to his column tide-, which is "Thinking Out Loud." Poems from selected columns follow. ON MARTIN DIES I like a man who's not Afraid of anything. Whose hack is spined wilh hone And not ei piece of siring. I like ei man who speaks His mind out plain and loud And stands his ground instead Of trailing with the crowd. I like a man who dares Refuse to go along To get along a while With compromise' and wrong. I like a man who spikes His colors to the mast In weather fair or foul. A captain to the last. ON THE LATTIMORE CASK Who is partly loyal And yet is partly not Seems to pose the problem Which building men have go!: Partly solid timber That still is partly rot. AGAINST SUBSIDIES Skillet and rifle. Powder and shot— These were sufficient. Grandfather thought. Subsidy handed Down from above Now is the ticket Citizens love. Subsidize renters. Subsidize cows, Subsidize ranches Out where they browse. Borrow lhe mone-y Paid lo the farm Deficits never Did any harm. Pile on the taxes, Shoveling out Treasury money Freely about. Skillet and rifle. Powder and shot Could be returning Sooner than thought. Page 48 Crouch Contrasts With Confused Confession of Commie Cooperator (See also Matusow Story oil Pa.ze 31) Harvey Matusow has said vou musl believe t 1 I thai he is a liar. (2) that he is now telling the truth. (3) lhal ho particular statement of his is a lie. If this is confusing it is no doubt intended to be. Matusow adds, dialceticallv. that since he cannot be trusted neither can Elizabeth Bentley, Louis linden/. Manning Johnson, nor Paul Crouch. In contrast with this fey approach, Paul Crouch is in process of defending his own veracity by flatly charging Drew Pearson with 'unmitigated falsehood." On the ABC network February 20 Pearson declared: "Paul Crouch has been found to have lied twenty-eight times." Ex-Communisl Crouch, formerly a Consultant of the I'.S. Immigration and Naturalization Sen ice issued the following statement from Volcano, Hawaii: "Drew Pearson's statement on the ABC network lhal I lied Iwcntv-eight limes is a complete and unmitigated falsehood. He- knows thai I was the government's first witness in five Smith Act trials and a major witness in a sixth, and also in lhe perjury trial of Harry Bridges. On all of these occasions the Communists made frenzied attacks on my testimony. And in all of these ceiscs. after evaluation of my testimony on direct and cross-examinations, the juries brought in verdicts of guilty. Drew Pearson thinks he- can succeed when' the Communist party failed. He thinks he can make lhe most fantastic and false charges with audacity and impunity because he has unlimited publicity channels, and he- is confident I cannot get a forum to present lhe facts lo ihe country. "I do nol believe Pearson would have the courage to face me on television. repeal his lies and give details, then permit me to reply in full and show the country lhe documented refutation of his fabricated and completely false charges. "Pearson, of course, failed lo mention the facl lhat a libel suit for $500.00(1 was filed in New York Slate Supreme Court many months ago againsl lhe \eit York Herald-Tribune for publishing and distributing attacks on me written hy Joseph anil Stewart Alsop.
