Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol..4 Fort Worth, Texas, October, 1953 No. 10 Organization With Scores Of Subversive Members Enjoys Probe-Exempt Privileges It Seems Unfair To Observe United Nations Day While Its Founder Is Still In Stir On October 24 many groups throughout the country are going to put the little pot in the big pot and whoop it up. The occasion will be United Na­tions Day proclaimed to honor the founding of the great international organization set up to end war, restore peace and insure unity among all peoples of the earth. As a fitting tribute to that great American patriot, Alger Hiss, in whose brilliant mind this superb instrument for universal goodwill was' born , a movement should be launched to get him sprung from the jug during that one day in order that he, too. may share in the honor to be accorded the child of his fertile brain. Petitions should be sent to pris­on officials demanding that he be released to the temporary custody of some outstanding group of patriots such as the Americans for Democratic Action. for example, who will guarantee his safe return to t he institution after he has de­livered a stirring address on loy ~ alty as his contribution to the day's program. In the event an u nsympathetic warden refuses to cooperate by giving him a twenty-four ho1J.t pa­role, perhaps it could be arranged to decorate his cell with the flag of the United Nations while h is friends and admirers conduct ap­propriate ceremonies on the ground beneath his window. To carry out this program a committee on arrangements should be selected from a m o n g his staunch supporters which would include. a m on g others, Felix Frankfurter. Harry Truman, Dean Acheson and Eleanor Roosevelt. As we go to press. the shocking announcement has been made in Washington that Governor Earl Warren of California has been named Chief J ustice of the Su­preme Court. The news broke too late for comment in this edition. Let Them Bring On Their Wildcats. We're Ready Miss Lucille Ball. the Hollywood television actress who is a :fast gal with an alibi, has given us an inspira­tion !{ some congressional committee of the future which is investigating sub­ver$ iOn smokes us out and charges us with having voted the New Deal ticket in 1932, we wHI be ready for them. We will just break down and tell them the t ruth and give honest an­swers like Miss Ball did We will first point out to them that we were very young at the time having barely reached ninety and that, in our youthful innocence, we didn't know lillY better We will also explain that our old grandpappy, Simon Legree McFlog~ ger, got out the old blacksnake whip and laid it on our poor back at every step Of the way to the polls We will make it clear that grand­pappy McFlogger was a lifelong mem­ber of the Socialist Party and polit­ical boss of the family and since we loved him and wanted to keep him happy, there was nothing we could do but vote !or Roosevelt. Thousands Pay Tribute To Chief Justice The late Chief J ustice Fred Vinson's complete lack of respect for fundamental principles of the American system of government was demonstrated many times in his rulings as a member of the Supreme Court. but he was per­sonally popular and enjoyed a wide circle of friends who held him in the highest esteem. His funeral in Washington re­cently was attended by thousands of prominent and h ighly respected citizens f rom all sections of t he country. Harry Truman was also present. Some of the most active and aggressive Communist Fronters and Fellow Travelers in this country officiated at the birth, and are contributing to the support, of Americans for Democratic Action, a dedicated clique of ideological deviates serving as a transmission belt for the dissemination of un-American theories of govern­ment in the United States. In the current era of controlled thought and mass action where everything is planned, nothing happens of its own accord and organ­ized minorities largely dictate our economic and social policies, Amer­icans for Democratic Action are striving for a vital and important role. While screaming to high heaven that they are anti-Communist. their membership roll r eads like a "Who's Who" in select Communist Front circles and the record of their stand on controvcrsia1 issues lines them up on the side o[ Moscow thinking and definitely places t h ~m in opp _ ··tion to basH: pnnciple:-i. uf the Americ-an. Republi('. Like the Ku Klux Klan of the 1920's whose members were re­quired to swear that they didn't belong to it, ADA affiliates must shout their denial of Communist sympa thy from one side of their mouth while clamoring for the obj ectives of Karl Marx, father of the Communist Party, from the other. Organized in 1947 out of the remnants of the notorious Union for Democratic Action set up in 1941 by labor racketeers to push the United States into Socialist England's war against Hitler, ADA emerged under the joint sponsorship Of pink polo players from Park Avenue and leftist labor leaders from the wrong side of the railroad track. In between these two extremes of the American social scale are to be found most o[ the misfits. riff-raff and rag-tag hangovers from the New Deal and Fair Deal snugly holed up in ADA staunchly plugging for any principle of government so long as it docs not conform to basic AmeriCan ideals. In valiant efforts to assemble under one roof all political bird!> o[ a feather, ADA has thrown open its doors to all creeds, classes and colors and the only ones barred from entrance are Americans of unquestioned loyalty to their own country and who have a deep and abiding faith in its institu tions as fashioned by the fou nders of the Republic. Wh ile investigating committees of the Congress probe into the subversive activities of far less dangerous and influential groups, ADA is left free to operate under a phony mantle of respectability as it goes merrily about its job of hacking away at our Free Enterprise System, discrediting the Constitution of the United States and under­mining the foundation of the American form of government. As a forceful example of how much the truth squares with ADA's protestations of anti-Communist sympathies, a brief review of its official actions and of some of the personalities who direct its pro­grams and formulate its policies, is illuminating. To begin with, one of the chief obstetricians officiating at the birth of ADA was one Reinhold Niebuhr-a professor at Union Theo­logical Seminary which turns out Socialist preachers in assembly-li.,c proportions-and who has not only belonged to. but has b~?en an active participant in, fourteen different revolutionary Communist fronts and which were so described by official investi!:~ating committees. There were fifteen other members of the organization committee. including the international representative of the Brotherhood of Sleep­ing Car Porters present at ADA's ini t ial meeting to assist in launching the organization. While sleeping car porters defi nitely have their useful place (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1953 Legislation Based On Theory Of A Superior Race Is Passed By The Israeli Parliament Last month the Israeli Parlia­ment passed a law which makes it illegal for the people of that coun­try to intermarry with Gentiles. Good for them. Of course) in enacting this leg­islation, the people of Israel, through their elected representa­tives, have announced to the world that they consider them­selves of a superior race. That's all right, too. Any race whose members have the pride and self-respect they should have want to keep their particular racial group inviolate from mongrelization through mix­ture with other strains. Theirs is a race which has al­ways been exclusive so far as their own people are concerned and now that they have officially tak­en this :firm and determined stand in the interest of self-preserva­tion, it is to be hoped that their good example will be followed here. In direct contrast to the proud spirit of the Israeli people, here in the United States there are con­stant and effective attempts to bring about m on g reI i z at ion through attacks on segregation and efforts to compel by law the indiscriminate mixing of the white and colored races. Since Israel considers it degrad­ing for their citizens to intermarry even with the people of other white races, it is obvious that they must unanimously agree that Martin Durkin Lived Up To Fair Deal Standards The performance of Martin Durkin in which he made it plain that he considers a Cabinet office as one which is secured and held through "deals" with the president, bears out the late Robert A. Taft's observation that the appointment of Durkin was "incredible" in the first place. The experience will be well worth what it cost him, if it teaches the president that any confidence re­i> osed in a professional Fair Dealer is about as safe and productive of beneficial results as placing a vipeY illBide his shirt. That he hasn't yet realized this is evident by his invitation to Adlai Stevenson to visit him and "brief" him on foreign affairs, an act for which his advisers should be fired without notice. Roosevelt did this same thing in the case of Wendell Wilkie but Roose­velt is the last person in the world, or out Of it, whose example should be emulated by an American presi­dent The East German radio announced that the Communists there will train 1,200 girls as parachutists by the end of this yNtr. In other words, if some Commissar gets funny or starts mak­ing pasS('S while 1000 feet in the air, a gal can just bail out and walk hom(' Th(' grNit majority of those who supported Dwight D. Eisenhower for pr('sid('nt were favorable to the Taft­llartlcv law as it stands and it is impos;iblc to believe Martin Durkin's claim that the president had made <1ny ngrccmC'nt with him to emascu­late this law. the forced social mixing of persons of different colors, with its in­evitable consequences, is the ulti­mate in human depravity. In view of the fact that the people of that country have close ties in the Unied States through hundreds of thousands of relatives and friends, they have a wonder­ful opportunity to repay a debt of gratitude to a nation which be­friended them in their hour of need. They can do this by communi­cating their racial views to their American contacts and enlisting their support in helping to pre­vent the tragedy of mongreliza­tion here which the people of Israel had the wisdom to forestall by law. Since the new state of Israel has begun its national life by institut­ing a rigid moral code, it goes without saying that they should be only too happy to help set up the same hjgh standards in a coun­try whose support and financial contributions enabled them to found their own nation and formu­late their social customs accord~ ing to their own desires. In the meantime, we are in the pitiable position of having launched a new nation on its course in history whose people had the foresight to employ legis­lative enactment to preserve the purity of their race while we seek to invoke the same machinery in achieving the corruption of our A Modern Horatio Alger Climbs The Ladder Fast Irving Kaplan was employed by the Works Progress Administration in 1936 at a salary of $5000. In six months he was raised to $5400; he was then transferred to the job of assistant attorney general at the same salary. In 1940 he was promoted to the office of research analyst of the Fed­eral Works Agency at $5600; in 1942 he was made head of the statistical department in the War Production Board at $6500; in 1944 he was made director of a division of Foreign Eco­nomic Administration at $8000; in 1945 his salary was raised to $8750 and in 1946 he was transferred to the Office of War Mobilization and Re­conversion at a salary of $9012. In 1952 he was asked by an investi­gating committee of Congress if he was now, and had been throughout all these years, a member of the Communist Party as Whittaker Cham­bers had testified. His reply was "I refuse to answer on the ground that it may tend to incriminate me." All it takes to get ahead in a gov­ernment job is to be honest, indus­trious and loyal, we always say, From a physician in St. Peters­burg, Florida: "From the Septem­ber edition, I take it that your Steve Brodie down the stairs has­n't hurt you a bit for which Allah be praised!! We need more Peg­lers, more Lewises, Hurleys, Brick­ers, McCarthy's and MacArthurs; yea boy, and more Dardens and Southern Conservatives." ORGANIZATION- (Continued from Page 1) in the national economy through the performance of their professional and personal duties the same as all other citizens, just what part they, as a group, were assigned in helping to overhaul the American govern­ment, re-defining its proper functions and enlarging its scope of re­sponsibility, was not made clear. It has been suggested by irreverent persons that perhaps their service to the cause will consist of spotting Reactionaries among Pull­man passengers, creeping up on these sleeping Fascists, yanking the pillow from under their head, hiding their shoes and throwing their pants out the window. The National Association for Advancement of Colored People was also ably represented at the organization ceremonies of ADA by its president although we were unable to find any envoy having similar interest in the advancement of white people listed as being present. The heads of the International Garment Workers Union, the United Automobile Workers and allied grouPs were on hand to give the benefit of their advice and counsel in the matter of discarding the principles of Lincoln and Jefferson and replacing them with ideologies more befitting the modern concepts of progressive citizens in a new worlrl order. "The New Deal Program must be expanded" read the first line of the first pronouncement issued by ADA following its organization although how the-y would go about expanding something that already covered everything from providing free nose rings for Bantu tribesmen in the Afri~_an Bush to guaranteeing riparian rights to the operators of irrigated skunk farms in the Euphrates Valley, was not explained. Further evidence of how strongly ADA frowns on Communism and Soviet sympathizers is offered by its roster of members which is identical, in many instances, with that of the subversive organizations listed in the files of the House Committee on Un-American Activities and in the official records of the Department of Justice. The window-dressing sector of ADA is composed of those who have never been listed officially as members of Communist Fronts and who have been able to successfully disguise their left-wing activities as liberal political action but their views are known to parallel in all essential points those of the shady characters who use the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution as a shield. This sector takes in those whose secure position in political circles makes them exempt from the embarrassment of official investigation to which lesser lights are subjected and includes ruch high-bracket leftists as Eleanor Roose­velt, Hubert Humphrey, Averill Harriman, Herbert Lehman and scores of other professional bleeding hearts. One of their prominent members who had ~!ficial ADA. approval of his candidacy for membership on the New York Ctly Council IS credited with membership in sixty-nine different Communist Fronts and who, because of his age, can't offer the alibi that his grandpa made him join. . Another ADA member and effective behind-the.scene worker IS shown in the Daily Worker, official Communist Party organ, on February 7, 1936, as a member o£ the Communist Party. Another member who takes a prominent part in its affairs is an ex­convict who served a prison term lor draft-dodging in World War I and who has proudly described himself as a "philosophical anarchist."

Also, it is hard to reconcile their alleged aversion to Commumsm w1th their official stand on public issues. They have demanded the right of Communists to organize student groups on the campus of all American colleges; they condemned the Mundt Com~ munist Control bill as a "dangerous and f\ltile attempt to repress C~m- ~t~~~~t~~; at~rit g£o6~~~u~i~t r;~~~~ ~% t~i~ ~~~~~;Y g~:~e~~\ ~~r t~~e }~~~~~ mation and protection of the American people; they demanded the ehmma­tion of loyalty tests ''in those agencies a!ld ~ositions w~ich do not. <:learly af- ~1c~ nt~~~n~hse~~u~~~1~;~t\~C: ~~~)Q~:~~e~~~~1~e~e~ut:~wo1~8a~Yufe01 ~~c~~a;i~ f~~f;'; ~~ffic~~~~~m~~i~n~~s~~c~ig~~e~}g~ ~i~~h~:o;~s~l;t~ge~~e~t~~~~:e t~! infiltration of Communism in our schools; they insisted on the right~ of_ teach~ ers to promote full and free discussion in the class roon: and their r1ght to join any political organization of t.J:leir choice, following disclosures .that.many ~~~ri~~mt~a~~ee;s c~:~:e~0 ~~u~~!s ~~~A~~~~c!~ac~~~fviri~~C~~~t;~e t~l ~gl~~~~ls o~~~i~~·· t~nJnd:~~g;J~d Ct~r;:tmi~0~~s a~~~h:d ,,~~r~~~ ~roe-~~f~t ~~ f~Y "~;~~~~~r~~: :!~t:rii~~m;f i;t~~~a~~~ ~~;hxe~~f~~s ~f~:~t~j~~~ ~::t~~;i activity in collaboration with the C1vil Liberties Committee on Academic ~~ee:~tTo;n;re~E~Jof~;is~:~~~ga!~odn !~d~~eeJict~~ s~~~~i~;h~;~f ~~e a P~:~~ Gov;~n;:::;\vell be that, as they claim, they are opposed to Comr~nmism b'l!t as spokesmen !or the things for which Communists stand, they w1ll do unhl a be~c;il~nX~X"1~s o~~ono1· the most influential organizations of its kind de- ~f~~~ i~o~~:a\~tr; sf~ft~r ~s~j~~~f~:~ w~~e::~a~hl~ii~~t~~~Y \t~r~i;l~~s, ~:e"i-dom Thadt s\~~ehe~~~t~u~~i~c~ ~~ue:i~!~ ~:o~l~~ee, independent and Ch~istian ~~~~0!o att~ings:a~~P~;~e':n::~ff~Vss~!i~~~s~~~~e~~~da:~~e~e~~~r~~h~t~~~dt~~ the shorn lamb, protects frail mortals from the evils of the1r own weakness.,. errors and folly. Octob•r. 1953 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page l TO KEEP CHILDREN EATING QUIT AND GET A HAVIN4j DIVORCE Over in England a sort of theo­logical Dr. Kinsey has turned up who has arrived at all the answers with-out having made a survey. His name is Henry Self, president of the Conference of Modern Church-men in Oxford. In an address to the annual meet­ing of that group recently, he toid the a~scmbl ed churchmen that he had found the solution not only for the food shortage problem but also the recipe for "happy marriages, par­ental responsibility and reverence for life generally." Pointing out that the fit breed faster than the unfit, he told h is listeners that the remedy is for churches to liberalize their attiude on divorce and for people to begin prac­ticing birth control. Which proves what so-called leaders will do and say to make the headlines. Treason is Still Treason No Matter Who Commits It We are mindful of the fact that in the United States in recent years the crime of treason has been not only tolerated but encouraged until it is no longer regarded as a much more serious offense than violation of the traffic laws. Just the same it is shocking to learn of the official attitude of this country toward American GI's who became converted to Communism while in custody of Red China as war prisoners, and who prefer to exist in slavery with their captors rather than return to t he freedom of their native land. In Panmunjom a Brigadier General A. L. Hamblen represent· ing the "United Nations Com mand Teams" and who is au t horized to speak for this country has assured these disloyal Americans that " being a P r ogressive is n ot con sid­e red a crime in the United Sta tes." In Tokyo General Mark Clark chimed in with this official state­m en t of policy: " I would r emind them of the American tradition of freedom-the freedom for which they fought before their capture." The right of Americans to betray t his country and i ts institutions u nder t he guise of " libe ralism" has been recognized ever since 1933 by the White House, by govern­ment agencies and by Congress and now the arm y brass puts its stamp of approval on treason among the troops. We can u nderstand how cap­t ured American soldiers would have said anything, done anything and promised anything to their savage masters while prisoners of war in order to save their lives. They could, as many did, outsmart the h eathens in this way and re­p udiate it on t heir return home. But those few who deliberately accepted Communism and elected to remain in enemy t erritory should be regarded as common traitors and so treated if they should ever decide to return. Maybe They Will Co!or It A Purple Shade Like Spuds We learn that a "Food Industries Coordinating Committee" in Wash­ington proposes for the Department o£ Agriculture to contin"...e to buy butter at the national average support price of sixty-five cents per pound and to permit its resale at a reduc­tion of ten or fifteen cents per pound into normal marketing channels. If the Federal government would attend to its own business such as de­livering the mail, levying imposts and the other limited functions which the founders delegated to it, we would not now be confronted with the threat of wnr, Socialism and na­tional bankruptcy. We have read the Constitution from cover to cover many times and we have never yet found any provi­sion in that document which author­izes the Federal government to buy butter, lipsticks, safety pins or any other commodity not necessary to the conduct of its legitimate business. Adlai Admits His Obedience To Bosses At the Chicago conclave of Social­ists who call themselves Democrats early in September, heavy blasts of hot air were released by the wind­jammers who held the center of the stage, but one assertion was made which can't be disputed. Adlai Stevenson quipped: "I am not a very good politician but I am a very obedient one." We'll say he is. He proved this fol­lowing his nomination for president last year when he knuckled under to Harry Truman, the CIO, the ADA and the machine bosses generally and servilely carried out their orders in his campaign pronouncements. All this, too, after being touted as an independent thinker who had no obligations to the Fa ir Deal gang whatever. This Is Cunningly Stated But The Meaning Is Clear Maintaining her twenty-year r ec­ord tor unfailing defense of subver­sive forces seeking to undermine the American government, Eleanor Roos­evelt r uns true to form in outlining the ideological beliefs of the National Issues Committee which she heads. "The denial of free will, whether by the innocent who profess intellect­ual belief in tota litarian doctri..Q,es or by tyrants and demagogues who try to practice them, is the denial both of man's opportunity to fulfill his destiny and of his responsibility be­fore God", she says in a recent }ll'O­nouncement on the aims of her com­mittee, and the "abuses" it will tqr to correct. That paragraph will bear reading over several times by thinking Amer­icans who, after they have done this, will be forced to the conclusion that we may be investigating the little fish and letting the big ones get France Is Typical Example A Sure Way To Of Power Of Communism End All Wars In France recently, a demonstra-tion of Communism in practical op­eration pointed up a clear picture of the power of Russia to bring about national chaos by remote control. The instruments through which the Soviets operated in attempts to demoralize the French economy were the powerful labor unions headed, in many instances, by a dangerous and lawless element. In a paralyzing strike throughout that country the unions illustrated what Stalin and Lenin M~o~ ant when they said that workers could bring about the downfall of "Capitalism" by concerted action without blood­shed. Not that France had much "Capi­talism" to fall since it is mostly a Socialized set-up with nationalized industry and a totalitarian economy, for the most part, based on the same Socialistic policies which prevail in most countries outside the United States, and which is fast gaining "toot­hold here. Those who are inclined to ch:mge and soften the provisions in the Taft­F'lrtley law could learn a valuable lesson from the disgraceful perform­ance of the unions in France during the nationwide strike there, but the chances are that they won't. As soon as Congress meets in January attempts wijl be st('pped up to re-write the Taft-Hartley Act and one of the main changes will be t~ provision which required union mem­bers to t ake a non-Communist oath. The motivating principle behind legi slat ion in Washington for the past twenty years has been a desire to keep politi cians in office and the se­curity afety and wcUare of the Re­public has been secondary, in highly controversial issues. The first foothold of Communism in t his country was the labor unions where Communists were holed up by the thousands and, to a large extent, this condition still prevails. Instead of weakening the Taft­Hartley law, the plain, and inE'scap­able duty o.f members of Congress is not only to leave that legislation in­tact but to place unions under the provisions of the anti-trust law. Maybe He Meant The Four Horsemen Senator Harry F. Byr d of Virginia, Senator Pat McCarran of Nevada, Governor Eugene Talmadge of Geor­gia and Governor Allan Shivers of Texas are among the "worst enemies of labor and liberalism to be found in the Democratic Party". This is the private opinion, public­ly expressed, of James B. Carey, na­tional Secretary of the CIO who also is~ ued this warning: "We cannot afford any longer to permit the Trojan horse of reaction to stable itself in the camp ol lib­eralism". His rather confusing statement leaves us in the dark as to which one ot the four he regards as the "horse••. At any rate it is not likely that the term, in its entirety, would ever be applied to Mr. Carey, Speaking of Senator Joseph R. Mc­Carthy, a Unitarian preacher in Evanston, Illinois, one Dr. Homer A. Jack, said: "No Communist in Amer­ica has done as much damage to our American Civil liberties and our whole Ametrican Democracy." Per­haps Dr. Matthews should revise his figures and make Jt 7001. World politicians who instigate wars for somebody else to fight should be put in the front line of battle themselves. The draft age should begin at fifty , instead of eighteen thereby giving the old birds a chance to see how they like to take their own medicine. World War II could have been prevented if the leaders of the na­tions involved, together with their top advisers, had been gotten togeth­er and had a nice, live bomb dropped on them. In this way the flower of Ameri­can manhood would have been saved, and the future of American youth would not have been sacrificed. Maybe Tito Is Going To Pay What He Owes Norman Thomas, Socialist leader, is just back from Yugoslavia and has joined in the chorus with Mrs. Roosevelt by chanting the refrain that we are unpopular in Tito's baili­wick. We wonder, if, by any chance, old man Tito is ready to pay back the millions we ''lent" him In 1951. We don't visit Iron Curtain coun­tries and consequently are not famili­ar with ethics there but in the only country we k now, or car!', anything about, it is considered good taste to speak well ot a benefactor who bails us out of tJ1e clink, and "JlOt knock him-at least until we pay him what we owe him. ov:::rit,i,r;Jc~!rt~~~s!~·~or D~nvi:nf:~~ renee gives a very logical explana­t ion of their opposition to an Ameri­can senator's efforts to rid the gov­ernment of Communists. He points out that in Europe Communists have pretty much of a free hand where they infiltrate governments and no­body seems to care. He called atten­tion to Klaus Fuchs. atomic spy, cleared by the British and sent to work in American atomic energy plants. He also named Guy Burgess and Donald McLean, both known to be spies who had skipped out to Russia carrying secret documents with them. He suggests that perhaps the reason for all the noise over "Mc­Carthyism" is because they want to keep any British McCarthy from in­vestiga ting what is going on there. There has never been a more in­famous act in the world's history than the division of Germany and Korea by unpr incipled politicians who sat around a secret conference table and traded in human destiny as casually as if they were small boys swapping marbles. The perfidy and treason of secret agreements are now being reflected not only in the tragic State of the Union in the Unit­ed States, but in the sorry plight of every nation in the world. FROM THE CONSTITUTIONAL GUIDEPOST, DAYTON, OHIO: " ... Russia has three votes (in the United Nations) compared with one for the United States. How do you like that? On a population basis, we are out­numbered in the United Nations 7 to 1. On a voting basis, we are out­numbered 59 to 1, .. , .

Eugene Prince, brilliant San Francisco attorney and an of­ficial o( the National Pro America organization gives the very timely warning that those Americans who want lo see our national sovereign­ty preserved and Constitutional government restored in the United States, had better get busy and become as expert at propaganda as our domestic enemies have proved themselves to be. It is her contention that for twenty years the only e£fective propaganda which has been car­ried on in this country has been that which was disseminated by the foes of Constitutional govern­ment bent on the destruction of the American Republic. To overcome this twenty-year advantage of subversive over pa­triotic forces, she urges real Amer­icans to start right now and ham­mer home the facts in season and out and to extol the superior benefits and exalt the glorious freedoms granted us under the greatest system of government ever devised by the mind of man. Only by repeated assertions of the truth. day in and day out, she believes, will right ultimately pre­vail over evil and the nation be reclaimed from its foul and loath­sorne betrayers. From the editor of a large Sou the r n daily newspaper: "Here's hoping you are rapidly on the road to recovery. The country never was more in need of a voice like yours than it is today and I am glad to see you back in your stride. How in the world you write so much good stuff is remark­able." THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE October, 1953 An Honest Man Is One Looks Like The Who Will Stay Bought Is Finally Getting United Nations Somewhere If our policy in Washington is to continue to be one in which we must pay the people of various nations not to embrace Commu­nism, we had better draw up a contract for them to sign on re­ceipt of the money which will bind them down to keep their part of the bargain. An old axiom of Tammany Hall is that "an honest man is one who will stay bought" but it looks like some of those we are hiring to remain pure and uncontaminated, are running out on their part of the deal. We have channelled millions up­on millions of dollars into India to stave off Communism there but she is flirting with both Western diplomats and Iron Curtain gents and playing both ends against the middle. In the end she will prob­ably go not to the highest bidder but to the latest one. That country is in the attitude of the American GI in the South Pacific during World War II who broke off his enga~ement to the girl back holJle and wrote her he was marrying an Australian girl as so many of his buddies were doing. In returning his ring, she wrote him and asked this ques­tion: "What have those Australian girls got that American girls don't have?" The GI replied in the next mail: "Australian girls haven't got anything thr~( American girls have­n't got. but they 've got it here," referrng, obviously to their charm, grace and beauty. Unless we keep steadily pump­itig American dollars into the In­dian treasury. that country will probably topple to the Soviets be­cause the Russians have "got it here." Iran is also the recipient of un­told millions of American taxpay­ers' dollars and now we are bold­ly informed by the Shah that we must continue to lay on the line or else. while England and France who drag down the swag in amounts beyond human capacity to compute, sta.rt making friendly passes at Russia at the faintest in­timation that American currency may dwindle to a trickle. From a new subscriber in Wash­ington, Pennsylvania: "It may in­terest you to know that your Sep­tember edition came to my atten· tion through a relative of one of our Pennsylvania Senators. It ap­pears to me to be the first publica­tion I have seen which can be compared with Harvey's \Veekly, published for several years during the first World War by Colonel George Harvey. For many years l have been hoping to read some­thing of a similar nature and now appear to have found it, which pleases me immensely; hence this subscription." According to the Shreveport Times, Adlai Stevenson is the guy who in the last election collld have easily carried India, yet lost all except nine of the forty-eight American states. Since its organization in 1945, the United Nations has frittered away its time and sloughed off billions of dollars on the consider­ation of fdvolous matters having nothing to do with the high ob­jectives for which it was founded such as ending wars and maintain­ing universal peace. Now, however. there's a rain­bow of hope in the international sky and it looks like this great world group is finally going to get down to business and take up the solution of a monumental problem, the disposal of which will more than repay American taxpayers for all the sacrifices they have suf­fered in maintaining this lavish and expensive world organization. This assumption is based on an Associated Press dispatch which hints that this great temple of uni­versal justice may soon take steps to set up machinery which will make it easier for a deserted wife to collect alimony when her tii­vorced spouse defaults in his pay­ments and skips the country with a ulatinum blonde. The story is based on the action of the International Federation of Women's Magistrates and Lawyers during its convention in Naples recently where plans were per­fected to demand that the coun­tries comprising the United Na­tions enter into an agreement to abolish national boundaries and insure worldwide cooperation in the collection of back alimony. So far as we can figure it out, it will mean a sort of international Mann Act giving process servers unrestricted authority to chase the old boy right into his Riviera love nest and compelling him to cough up the amount of his arrears even if it means selling a couple of the blonde's mink coats in order to get himself out of hock. Since the United Nations never turns down a humanitarian plea nor refuses a request for Hs serv­ices in readjusting social behavior of the human race, we assume that they will get busy on the project immediately and draw on the U.S. Treasury for a preliminary fund of ten million dollars to get the program under way. Texans Offer Plan For Debt Reduction Based On Plain Common Horse Sense The East Texas Chamber of Commerce has suggested a sound, sane and sensible plan whereby the Federal government may cut the national debt in half. or course there is one little drawback and that is that the Fed­eral government has not been known to adopt any sound, sane and sensible ideas during the past twenty years but we can hope. The plan consists of only two parts and involves only two simple procedures: 1. Sell all government-owned property not essential to the func­tions of the government, which would bring approximately $150,- 000,000,000. 2. Apply the proceeds to the na­tional debt, which is now $272,- 000,000,000. This plan, if put into operation, would not only go a long way to­ward balancing the budget but would render the invaluable serv­ice to the American economy of eliminating government as a com­petitor of private business. The proposal is based on honest business procedure and plain, com­mon horse sense, qualities which in the past would have been suf­ficient cause for its immediate rejection. Good Americans will await with interest reaction to it in Washing­ton and will be concerned to find out if it is to be accepted, rejected or just plain ignored. While they wait such Americans could render valuable service by advising their senator and mem­bers of Congress of their desire to see, for once, a sensible solution of a national problem. Florence Fowler Lyons of Los Angeles who was largely instru­mental ln having UNESCO litera­ture removed from school rooms there has printed excerpts from the original No. 6 pamphlet put out by UNESCO. She has repro­duced the paragraph about Itali~n mothers which caused such rever­berations that the new No.6 pam­phlets have omitted all reference to it. We are glad she is bring!~~ this out for Americans to see with their own eyes. We could never bring ourselves to publish the fil­thy and obscene stuff but she ob­viously has more courage than we. A church in Des Moines refused to make their auditorium available to Eleanor Roosevelt in order that she might prattle about World Govern­ment on October 5th, but invisible powers intervened, compelled the Des Moines authorities to back down and she was leit lree to go ahead and spew forth her United Nations and World Government propaganda. Dag (pronounced dog) Hammarsk­jold (we don't know how this is pro­nounced), Secretary General ol the United Nations told the "American. Association for United Nations" at a dinner in New York that the ··unite~\ Nations has no power to encroach upon the national sovereignty of anY state against the will ol its govern­ment and people." How, we wonder, does he explain the California decis­ion, the Oregon decision, and the, Vinson decision in the steel seizure? It is somebody else's time to tell a funny one. In the Presidential Proclamation setting October 4 as United Nations day Americans are requested to learn all about the United Nations. We already know about it. October, 1953 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 5 Americans Should Denying Charges Hesitate Before Of J. B. Matthews To those who do not realize how far away from religious objectives some churches have travelled atten­tion is called to a most amazing arti­cle in the July 24 edition of the Methodist section of the All-Church Press, published in Fort Worth. This is a column titled "News in the World of Religion" written by one W. W. Reid in which "strong support for land reform in all parts of the world" is reported to have been voiced by the Council of Social Ac; tion of Congregational Christian Churches. '·Governments, churches, and men of goodwiH are urged to join fi. movement to arouse the Christian con­science of the world to demand and obtain sound and democratic land rcCorm wherever needed" the article states and points out that "there is a rising tide of demand for more jusi and equitable land tenure arra9.ie­ments which is assuming revolution­ary proportions in many parts of the world." '•Recent moves by the United States and by certain agencies of the United Nations to encourage land reform wherever needed" the article expressed that these efforts will q_e continued. Noted Author And Patriot Will Be Welcome In Texas A delightful letter !rom Taylor Caldwell, author of "The Devil's Ad­vocate" published in 1952 and which exposed evils of Communism not pre­viousty revealed, intimates that she may visit Texas some day and write a book depicting the greatness of the Lone Star State. If she does, she assures us that she win not abuse the hospitality of the ''kindest people in America" as Edna Ferber did in her distorted ver­sion of Texas people and their cus­toms in the monstrosity called ''Giant." We assure Miss Caldwell that the \velcome mat is always out for any great American patriot of her type and that there is no , fear on our part that she would be capable of performing in the same manner as fel1ow traveler Ferber. There will be no danger of a person with Miss Caldwell's character and integrity betraying the confidence of her hosts or repaying their courtesy with ingratitude and Jies. LEGISLATION WITHOUT A Mystery Which Can Be Solved Only By Action Of The American Congress While committees of Congress are probing various phases of sub­version, they could render no greater service than by investi­gating and revealing the identity of the sinister forces who have controlled national policies of gov­ernment for twenty years. Unless official action is taken by Congress to identify and ex­pose these unseen masters of our destiny, we cannot hope th::tt their hold will be broken. One hundred and sixty million Americans are entitled to the an­swers to these questions and should not stop until they get them: Who, for instance, ordered the pigeon -holing of the B r i c k e r amendment which was designed to protect American sovereignty? Who was behind the demand for the passage of legislation at the last session of Congress ad­mittin~< 214,000 additional aliens in defiance of our well considered immigration law? Who prompted official defense of the placing of Communist books in German libraries by our State Denartment? Who decreed that J. B. Mat­thews should be hounded out of his job as counsel for an investi­gation committee be c au s e he called attention to approximately 7,000 subversive ministers? Whose influence reaclwd out into state legislatures and pre­vented passage of the resolution in four of those bodies which would have resulted in steps for repeal of the income tax amend­ment and the substitution for one limiting tax levies? Who called the shots in the Ko­rean <~truce" and who ordered that General Douglas MacArthur be recalled when he was winning the war against Communists? Who insisted that foreign aid be continued and that exorbitant tax levies remain in effect, except for token gestures? · None of these things happened. It was planned that way and to accomplish these ends reauired organization, cooperative and uni­fied effort and unlimited millions of dollars. Action in each of the above cases was detrimental to the in­terests of the United States and favorable to those of some other nation or group. Will Americans. acting in a col­lective impulse toward patriotism and a desire to save and preserve the Republic, demand the solu­tion of this mystery, or will they continue to drift and dream? Attention is called by the Coun­cil "to the importance of teaching the principles of land reform in the training of missionaries going to for- BENEFIT OF LAWMAKERS. Countries Who uch Borrow etter Money From cign fields." Now just what, we wonder, do they mean by "land reform" and especial­ly as it relates to the United States and movements of ''revolutionary pro-portions" to obtain it? We knew that in some semi-civi­Jized sections of the world there is often an uprising of peasants which results in a seizure of land held by high potentates but we didn't know that there is any concerted movement to inspire similar action here. We thought that through the order­ly procedure prevailing under a gov­ernment such as ours and in other civilized sections of the world, a per­son who wanted land simply bought it from the owner and acquired legal title in this way. Also, we didn't know about the new methods of training missionar­ies. We thought they were equipped to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the heathen and hadn't realized that they are instructed to teach land reform policies of Karl Marx to the benighted of the world. Perhaps our ignorance on the sub­ject is due to the fact that we have been closely following the infiltra­tion of Communists and Communist ideas into this country and hadn't kept up with what was going on. Those Americans who are inclined to dispute Dr. J. B. Matthews' con­tention that 7,000 American min­isters are advocating Communism, had better take another slant at the situation. John Foster Dulles told the Ameri­can Bar Association that the Bricker amendment would put Congress in charge of the conduct of foreign pol­icy which would have a ''calamitous effect upon the international position and prospects of the United States." Something has already had a "calami­tous efiect'' on the position and pros­pects of the United States and it wasn't the Bricker amendment. The appointment of a committee to see that firms and individuals securing government contracts ob­serve an FEPC law which has never passed Congress is deplor­able. It boils down to the passage of legislation without benefit of law­makers and is without precedent in the history of American gov­ernment. Certainly those who let govern­ment contracts have not only the right, but the responsibility, to demand that those who secure these contracts shall carry out their part of the bargain in every possible way by providing the best service, workmanship and commodities available. They also have the right and the responsibility to ·see that those securing government business make deliveries or complete proj­ects on dates specified in such con­tracts and live up to their obliga­tions in every way in regard to service and quality of materials. Beyond that, officials of the American government cannot go without violating not only the basic rules governing such mat­ters but public morality as well. In letting a contract to a firm, a government official has no more right to designate the color of the skin of those who shall be em­ployed by such firm than he has to specify what brand of overalls they must wear. If a bureaucrat can get by with dictatorial demands about the in­ternal management of private business concerns, he can go fur­ther and insist that only those be employed who have a wart on their nose, a cast in their left eye and tattoo marks on their chest. The American Congre.!ls has re-s f Than We. When an individual lends money to another, it is a sign, ordi· nar~ly, that the lender is in a more sound and solvent state than the borrower. Governments, however, do not observe this economic rule and the amount of money they lend to other countries is influenced b~ pressure and not by the financial condition of the nation making the loan. That the countries which American taxpayers have been forced to support in recent years and who have received billions of dollars in loans and gifts from the United States are in better shape than this country is proved by the following figures on the bonded indebted-ness of various countries. , These figures were furnished by a Houston business man who takes time out of a busy life to keep tab on what his government is doing with the taxpayers money: Belgium-Luxemburg . . .. , ...... , , .. $ 4.8 Billion Denmark . . , , . , , ....... , , .... , , 1.4 Billion France ..... , , .. , , ... , . , . , , , . , . , . . . 12.1 Billion Greece ..... , , , . , , . , .. , , ........ , , , .1 Billion Iceland ...... , ........ , . , ..... , . , 02 Billion Italy ....................... , . . . • . 5.1 Billion Netherlands .... , . , ... , , ... , .. , .. , . 6.7 Billion Norway ................ , ....... , , . 1.5 Billion Portugal ... , , ....... , ............ , .3 Billion Turkey ........................ , , .5 Billion United Kingdom .. , . , . , ..... , . ... , . 71.0 Billion Germany .............. , . , ... , . , . , 4.3 Billion Austria . . . . . . . . . . . • . • . • . . . . . . .6 Billion Spain ... . , ..... , . , . , .•..... . , , . , . . 2.0 Billion Yugoslavia , .... , , . , , . , , , ...• , .... , .6 Billion United States ........ , . , ........... 266.7 Billion fused time and again to enact this law which interferes with the fundamental and Constitutional rights of employers and the legis­lative function is still vested in that body and will remain there until the Constitution is changed and lawmaking powers are trans­ferred to extraneous committees, bureaus or boards. It looks like the City ol New York is not going to have much of a Mayor regardless ot how the election goes there next November. The New Deal's candidate is Robert F. Wagner, Jr., son of the author of the infamous Wagner labor relations act, who wiH be pitted against a Dewey Republi­can, Harold Riegelman and a polit­ical opportunist Rudolph Halley who was catapulted into the limeli~ht by the Kefauver Committee. P•g• 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE October, 1953 AMERICAN PEOPLE GROSSLY DECEIVED BY FALSE PROPAGANDA ON OBJECTIVES OF UNITED NATIONS The story of the world conspiracy as embodied in the United Nations has been told to the American people many times but no clearer picture of this subversive organization has been drawn than that presented by Honorable Usher L. Burdick, Congressman from North Dakota. Addressing a large gathering in attendance at a meeting of the American Flag Committee in Philadelphia, Mr. Burdick, with refresh­ing candor and honesty, said in part: As I am a Member of the House and ---------- not o( the Senate, I was never called upon to vote on the approval of the Charter of the United Nations. I knew the principal authors of this Charter were a Russian representative and Alger Hiss, of the Slate Depart­ment. This conspicuous authorship was lull notice to me, and should have been to all others, that a program was being formulated that was in­imical to the interests o.£ the United States. After the San Francisco Convention, whe re the Charter was approved, I was more ce rtain than before that the people of the United States, if they understood all the proposals set forth in th e charter, would not approve the docume nt. When the matter of the approval of the charter came before the Sen­ate the same universal appeal for world peace was stressed and it was made to appear that this peace de­pended upon the support to be given to the charter. Under this state of :reeling the document was approved by the Senate of the United States, w ith the di ssent of only two Senators in til <' whole body To North Dakota and Minnesota goes the credit of h aving the two Senators who saw in the cha rter the sinister purposes which later appeared in the open. Those who sponsored the approval of the charter and continued support to the United Nations issued assur­ance after assurance that there was nothing contained in the charter, and nothing intended by the United Na­tions that would in any way interfere with our own national sovereignty. The public of the United States was bombarded with pamphlets and leaf­lets, the radio boomed with speeches advocating the united support of ou.t people to this "great document for peace." False propaganda advocat­ing the support of this program for peace was peddled to our higher insti­tutions of learning, to minor colleges, and to the common schools. Many ministers who prayed for peace, were taken off their guard and openly supported the United Nations, and in many cases the pulpits became for­ums for the United Nations. The irony of this whole procedure was that the people of the United States were paying in taxes for this whole propaganda enterprise of deceit. When I first read the charter 1 saw in it an attempt to form a world government. and if possible, to make the United Slates merely a subserv­ient member of this world organiza­tion. W.e were told again that these fears were wholly unfounded. We were advised again that all the Unite~ Nations wanted was to work for world peace, and that no individupl nation would be interfered with. But startling things were to hap­pen. First of all was U1e Fujii case in California. In this case the district court held that the local law of Cali­fornia (preventing Japanese nationals from holding land) was void because it conflicted with the charter of the United Nations. Here we had the first lesson in imposing upon local com-munities the will of the United Na­tions. The next startling case was the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in the Truman ste=w: seizure action. There is nothing in our Constitution to authorize the seizure, but the Chief Justice held it was valid for the reason that the United Nations Charter gave such authority. It is easy to see the im­portance of this decision, for if the majority of the Court had adopted the views of the Chief Justice the Con­stitution of the Unite<! States would have been overruled by the Charter of the United Nations .... The Declaration of Human Rights, issued by the United Nations, was circulated by the millions of copies in the United States; and the prin­ciples therein contained were not very objectionable. That was the docu­ment that was circulated and publi­cized, but the Covenant of Human Rights, headed for the Senate, was an entirely different document. In it an attempt was made to redefine free speech, a free press, and free religion; and this document, ignoring the pz:o­visions in our Constitution, undertook to say that everyone was entitled to the p r ivi lege of fr eC' sp<"ech except :\ C: limited by law. and except as it might interfere with the purpos\!s of the United Nations. This was such an open and notorious attempt to change our Constitution that the public became alarmed, and the covenant was with­drawn from the Senate For many months the United Na­tions has been working on the pro­visions of a World Court, in which jurisdiction over what the United Nations is pleased to call a crime js lodged. If, perchance, I made a speech in North Dakota against the insidious attempt of the United Nations to in­terfere with our local affairs or to surreptitiously change our Constitu­tion, that would be a crime as seen by the United Nations. I am arrested, and where am I tried? Is the trial to be held in North Dakota, under the provisions of the Constitution of North Dakota and the Constitution? No, I will be tried wherever the World Court determines. Thus I, as a citizen of the United Stales, whose ancestors came here 330 years ago, can be taken out of this country and tried in a foreign country. with no protection under the Constitution of the United States. Is that what the people o.f the United States want? Their next move was the propaga­tion of UNESCO, the United Nations Economic Scientific, and Cultural Or­ganization, in which our children were to be prepared for membership in a world government, and it was made specific that loyalty to the United States and reverence for our great leaders like Washington and Jefferson was detrimental to fidelity to a world government. They propose to destroy a strong national spirit and respe<:.,t for the institutions of the United States and replace them with loyalty to a world government. Is that what the people of the United States want Yet the propaganda for UNESCO is still going on unabated and paid :for by the taxpayers of the United States. Up until thb year, while I fully believed the United Nations had for its main purpose the establishment of a world government, nothing was done in the open in this direction. Now comes the unvarnished truth of this effort. The House of Commons oi England appointed a committee to study the question of whether or not England should join the Confederation of World Government. There have al­ready been two such conferences on this matter, and the second one re­ported January 21, 1953. This movement toward a world government is starting to rise not only in England, but in the United States we have had speakers travel­ing across this country holding meet­ings and advocating it. I have always seen in the Charter of the United Na­tions the framework of a world gov­ernment; hence, it is evident to me that the United Nations is behind tl)is whole scheme. ed Nations. The London Conference proposed two ways of doing this: First, by a revision of the whole Charter of the United Nations; or. second, by amendments to the char­ter. So after all the real purpose behind the organization of the United Na­tions has come to light. Its very pur­pose was to organize a world gov­ernment under the false guise that such a structure would. result in world peace; and hence it is that its first objective is the building of this world government. That is the reason they have attempted to re­write the Constitution of the United States and subvert it to their own purposes. What other reason can be given for the attempt of the United Nations, through its Covenant of Human Rights, to rede.fine free speech. a free press, and free religion? Not only is it a design to build a world government and undermine our own, but the complexion of such a government is bound to be commu­nistic. Every nation is to be invited Not many Americans can believe to j<.'\$n, and when once they have what this report says the United Na- ~~~~~~nt~h~~n·~a;~o~s:i::~:~~ t~~ tions is trying to do.

For this demoralization of the beau­tiful Northwest Pacific metropolis, the people of that area can thank the Urban League whose propaganda for mongrelization has become so notor­ious as to cause even Hedding Carter the Mississippi "Liberal" to admit in a recent magazine article: "Racial ten­sion and hate organizations flourish in areas where the Urban League is popular." In proof of Carter 15 prop~1etic warn­ing, racial hatred in Portland, where the Urban League is a powerful fac­tor, is assuming alarming proportions and recently burning crosses have made their appearance near the homes of Negroes who have moved into white neighborhoods. Oregon is also the Mecca of "Pro­gressive" educators, a stronghold of the National Council of Churches and the "cultural" influence of Harry Bridges' Longshoreman's Union is strongly exerted in that section. Two local left-of-center newspapers have also contributed to the nauseous and unwholesome atmosphere prevailing in the Oregon city. In its propaganda literature put out by the Portland Division of the Urban League, accomplishments in breaking down the color line are listed and the boast is made that Negroes are now admitted to white hotels, swimming pools, schools, YMCA's, churches, res­idential districts and all other places with the exception of a few private clubs. To cap it all, these combined forces have put through the Oregon legisla­ture a Civil Rights bill which puts One Way To Prevent A Decrease In Population A measure designed to discourage any extensive travel on the part of its citizens has been adopted in Bulgaria. This is in the form of a law passed by their governing body last Febru­ary which provides that any person in that country who attempts to leave its borders shall be executed.

Party line and undertakes to brin~ about mongrelization of the white race through statutory enactment. - The respectable element of Port­land's population, however, has not taken this assault on human dignity lying down and a strong and influ­ential group there is reported to b~ working as a sort of unofficial and non-sectarian Legion of Decency to combat further steps which may be taken to install additional Commun­ist practices and customs in Portland's institutions and way of life. Under the leadership of Reverend Elbert D. Riddick, a highly respected Episcopal Rector, an effort was made to get a referendum vote on the Civil Rights bill in order that the people of Oregon might decide the matter, but as more than 23,000 signatures to such a petition would have been re­quired, the movement had to be aban­doned for lack of time. The majority of the citizenS> of Oregon are under­stood to be unalterably opposed to the Civil Rights bill. The fight for mongrelization and miscegenation was led by Episcopal Bishop Benjamin D. Dagwell who plugged throughout the state for the indiscriminate mixing of the white and colored races although he, him­seH, lives in an exclusive Portland club where Negroes are not allowed. Bishop Dagwell has, of course, been cited as a member of several Colll.­munist fronts and his name has ap­peared in the Daily Worker, official Communist publication in the United .States..- showing his activity .i COJ}­nection with such organizations. During the campaign Portland newspapers carried vicious attacks on Rev. Riddick by Bishop Dagwell, but not only refused to print Rev. Riddick's reply as an interview but also refused to accept a paid adver­tisement embodying his answer to the Bishop. George Dixon, one of our favorite columnists, sees nothing but irony in the fact that Harry Truman will get special treatment from the Treasury in the matter o{ tax payments on his memoirs. It is, he claims, a flagrant miscarriage of justice. "The head of the party that imposed these Frank­enstein taxes on us is being given extraordinary permission to escape from the clutches of his own mons­ter," he wails. The United States government has contributed more than one hundred million dollars to Israel. We are searching the Constitution to find authority for this and sim­ilar gifts to foreign countries but so far we have been unable to find it. Perhaps some more in­telligent student of government can tell us where to look for this authority. Telephone operators in Austin and San Antonio, Texas, recently walked off their jobs in an effort to compel the telephone company by force to install air conditioning. And yet it is a safe bet that not one of these girls came from a home which is air­conditioned. They were ordered to walk out by the CIO which bosses its members as if they were so many sheep. and lost by the United Nations, Sen­ator Jack B. Tenney, California's pio­neer in the exposure of Communist infiltration, told the summer grad­uating class at Sequoia University in Los Angeles recently. Senator Tenney charged that, so far as United Nations' collective ac­tion against Communist aggression is concerned, the result is a total failure. Pointing oUt that MacArthur, Ridg­way and Van Fleet would have won the war if they had not been stopped by United Nations' directives, Tenney asserted that ''the utter stupidity of letting the Communist-appeasing Unit­ed Nations kill American boys and squander billions of American dollars, is shown by the fact that a Soviet General of the United Nations sat in the Military Commission of the Se­curity Council supposedly fighting against the Communists." Following the address an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Humanities was awarded Senator Tenney by Dr. Jo­seph W. Hough , president of Sequoia. Mutilation Of Taft-Hartley Law Would BeT ragic Mistake Victor Riesel, newspaper col­umnist, makes the observation that the president has been badly briefed on the labor front. He quotes an undisclosed cab·­net mem er as charging that the president is being deliberately de­ceived by some of his own confi­dential advisers who are "plot ~ ting" to sell him a labor policy which would have been too radical for Roosevelt or Truman to accept. Mr. Riesel's observations, how­ever, were made before the recent double-cross of the president by the Fair Deal Secretary of Labor and perhaps this incident has opened the president's eyes as to the length to which labor bosses will go in seeking class legislation for their group. It is to be hoped that the presi­dent will give long and earnest consideration to any suggestions for destroying the effectiveness of the Taft-Hartley law. Tragedy Of Yalta May Be Repeated In Korea The American Council of Chris­tian Churches which serves as a sort of antidote to the poison put out by the National Council of Churches of Christ sent a cable­gram to Dr. Syngman Rhee, presi­dent of the Republic of Korea, at the time the truce was being sign­ed which said: "We fully sympathize with your apprehension and that of all South Koreans as you consent, largely out of friendship for the U.S.A., to the present truce. It is our fear also that another Yalta or Tehran is about to be enacted. Experiences have emphasized repeatedly that agreements acceptable to commu­nists arc always suqh ·as they can and wiU use to further their ends and achieve large advantages for A religious sect out in Western Canada seems to have evolved a sys· tern of behavior which enables them to win bouts with authotit~s ol the law by the simple expedient ot silence. Their methods constitute a sort of cross between those of Lady Godiva and Mahatma Gandhi. When till"y run afoul of the law and are threatened with arrest, they take off their clothes and march naked around town. If tax authori· ties get too insistent, the Doukho­bors strike a match and set fire to their homes or whatever property is involved, and burn it down. In the meantime. they never speak a word and might be ~:.::af and dumb for all practical purposes. Harrassed Canadian officials have been tearing their hair out for years from frustration because of the antics of this queer sect and are reported to be trying to induce them to move to a South American country, lock, stock and barrel. So far such efforts, however, have met only with an elo­quent silence. Many years ago, we witnessed an amusing instance of the Doukhobor's capacity for holding out against su­perior forces and for emerging vic· toriously from a situation by merely sitting it out and doing nothing about it. A big, husky old 41Douk", weighing perhaps 250 pounds, with long black hair and wais~ - l ength whiskers, board­ed a crack Canadian Pacific train at Edmonton and calmly took his seat in an unoccupied Pullman berth just across the aisle from us. When the conductor came for his ticket, the old bird said nothing, stared him down and gave a forceful version of a one-man sit-down strike. All efforts to extract his fare failed ignominiously and since he could not put the elderly man off in the middle of the Canadian wilderness, the train­man finally gave up in disgust and despair. On arrival in British Columbia, the tongue-tied freeloader calmly got off the train without having uttered a word during the entire trip and silently went his way. communism at the expense of the free world. "Communists will never, through conferences, grant what they refuse to grant when facing military ac­tion. We thank God for your cour· ageous stand for a principle at any cost. We are praying that men of honor in this country and in other free lands will insist that within a short period all Chinese Commu­nists leave Korea and your country be united, or such objectives failing of realization by peaceful collabora­tion, that they will demand that hostilities be renewed with large assignment of men and supplies from all free United Nations coun­tries thrown into the conflict for a speedy and smashing victory." The church officials signing the ablegram were Dr. W. W. Breck­n ill, president and Dr. William H. Bordeaux, general secretary J. B. Matthews Is Loaded For Bear Rev. J. B. Mathews who will ap­pear before the House Committee on un-American Activities in Oc· tober says that he is not retreating one step in his recent assertion that the largest single group sup­porting the Communist apparatus in the Udted States today is com­posed of Protestant preachers. Rev. Matthews adds that he can, and will, support that charge with 2,000 pages and 10,000 photostats of documentary material on Red influences in American churches. He claims that the Communist Party since 1948 has placed more and more reliance upon the ranks of the clergy to provide the Party's sub versive apparatus with its agents1 dupes and fellow travelers. No good American will be pleased wh en Doctor Matthews proves h is charges before the Com­mittee as this defection on the part of religious forces constitu tes one of the greatest tragedies o! the ages. If th is small minority amonv great majority of Christian min­isters of the gospel could be re­converted to Christianity and re­claimed from subver sion, it could become a powerful force for sal­vaging the Amer ican government just as it is now tipping the scales in favor of the enemies of the United States. Rev. Matthews' part in this ex­posure must be tinged with sad­ness. and a certain amount of shame, for he, too, once occupied a pulpit as a proponent of the gospel of Jesus Christ while sec­retly collaborating with Commun­ist fronts. His actions now are part of his atonement for the irreparable:: wrong he did to the cause of Chris­tianity and for his part in promot­ing Communism among his follow­ers who trusted him as a man of God. From a member of the National P ress Club, Washington, D. C., which receives one hundred com­plimentary copies of the Southern Conservative each month: "The Southern Conservative is the most popular paper that comes to the Press Club. Within two or three hours after it appears on the 'hand­out' table, every last one is gone. Other publications stay piled up all week with few takers." The Montreal Star reports that a f lourishing business is now being carried on by smugglers of human flesh in which Communist under­ground workers from behind the Iron Curtain cross the border into the United States at the rate of 20 per day.

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE October, 1953 ILLINOIS VERSION PAPER GIVES CORRECT Eleanor Urged To Knit Socks OF THE OXNA' M HEARING For Boa Constrictors Of Brazil When Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam appeared before the House Commit­tee on un-American Activities some time ago with a lot of fanfare '!_nd bringing along his own cheering squad, the incident was distorted in practically all press reports of. the affair. An exception is an editorial appear­ing in the Peoria, Illinois, Star, which gives these plain, unvarnished facts in the matter: "The hearing of Methodist Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam before the House Committee on un-American Activi­ties rated a front page spot in most American newspapers and therefore may be considered important news. As such, it is important that it be conveyed honestly and intelligently to newspaper readers. "But apparently reporte rs for both United Press and Associated Press fell short of the qualifications neces­sary to tell the story straight. Wheth­er they neglected to get all the facts or preferred to "slant" the story, we don't know. But we do know that the Oxnam affa ir has been as badly distorted in the news as was the Robeson affair in Peoria six years ago. "One AP story stated: 'Methodist Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam won a concession from the House un-Amer­ican Activit ies Committee Wednesday. The committee declared that it had no record of any Communist Party membership or affiliation by the Bishop'. "Another AP story led off with this pa ragraph: 'The House Committee on un-Amcrican Activities voted Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam a clean bill of health early today so far as any record of Communist Party affilia­tion is concerned'. "A United Press story started: 'The House un-American Activities Com­mittee today cleared Methodist Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam of Communist ties . . .' "Newspapermen who wrote heal!­lines naturally composed heads that corresponded with the lead para­graphs of these stories and we saw in large type such lines as: 'Bishop Oxnam cleared of Red Party mem­bership charge. Oxnam cleared of Party tics. No evidence is found of Oxnam-Red linkup.' "We submit to the thoughtful con­sideration of any open-minded person this belief: that most readers would get the impression from those stories and headlines that the House Commit­tee on un-American Activities had accused Bishop Oxnam of having been a member of the Communist Party, but, on being challenged by him, had repudiated the charges and admitted that there was no evidence of party membership. "People who reached that conclus­ion were grossly deceived because, in the words o! one committee mem­ber, Representative Jackson of Cali­fornia , 'No accusation of Communist party membership had ever been leveled against him (Oxnam) by any member of the committee or its staff'. "The story that Bishop Oxnam had been cleared of party membership charges was not only a false state­ment, but it served to obscure the more im • 'rtant fact that he had been accused of membership in Commun­ist front organizations but denied that he knew the character and purpose of the front groups when he joined. "The significance of Bishop Ox­nam's appearance before the com­mittee is not in the committee's state­ment that there was no evidence of party membership. The real story is summed up in these words by Dem­ocratic Representative W a 1 t e r o! Pennsylvania, ranking minority mem­ber of the committee: 'I th ink we demonstrated very clearly that the Commun ists are using well-known and h ighly- pla ced people, willing or otherwise, as d upes and that the bi~­ger the name, the better for thetr cause. I place Bishop Oxnam in that category.' "Many p ersons will have missed that important point Why? Because they read news stories that were per­nicious hall-tru ths."

ATOMIC BOMBS Our national leaders are expressing concern that Russia may have a greater supply of atomic bombs and other death-dealing weapons than we.

Bringing American traitors to justice has been almost impossible in the face of opposition from the White House as was proved in the case of Alger Hiss whom two presidents saved from prosecution for treason. Second, we have persisted in the indefensible policy of channelling bil­lions of dollars from the pockets of American taxpayers into the coffers of foreign countries whose regard for Russia exceeded their respect for the United States which, in the final analysis, means we have indirectly helped Russia to out-distance us in the atomic bomb race. The fact that we may be behind in the matter of the production o! these bombs does not mean that we have not given and thrown away enough money to have put us far ahead in the contest. Boiling it down to coldblooded facts, we have, through our traitors and our policies, contributed to Russia's defense while neglecting our own. The inimitable Lynn Landrum, widely-read columnist in the Dal­las Morning News, in a spirit cf kindly consideration for his fellow Americans, suggests that Eleanor Roosevelt retire from her public activities and start knitting socks for the boa constrictors of Brazil. In defense of this proposal. he points out the long neglect of these denizens of the illiberal jungle and insists that it is high time some bleeding heart bled !or the boas. "How would you like to be a boa and not have a stitch of kni t­ting to your name," Mr. Landrum inquires of his readers In a more serious vein, he makes this charitable appraisal of the ubiquitous pink lady: "Eleanor Roosevelt is a well-meaning bum­ble- wit, a woman of courage with­out comprehension, of affection without discipline, of ch arity with­out common sense. She has brought some good to the world and has done untold harm to her own cou ntry." Herbert Philbrick, former FBI un­dercover agent, testified before the House Un-American Committee early in s~)tem ber that in a super-secret Communist cell in Boston there were seven or eight clergymen who were "dedicated, hardened, steeled Com­munists." Theodore Roosevelt, son of a former president and a member of the. responsible branch of the fam­ily test ified before the same commit­tee that he was "horrified" by tbe extent of Communist inf iltraUon of the churches. "Property rights preceded govern­ment and government was created to protect our property rights." says Mary Cain the fighting Mississippiag. From an attorney in Fort Val­ley, Georgia: "I congratulate the United States on your recovery from your fall. Your accident seems to have even added sparkle to your pen, though none was needed. The Southern Conserva­tive is better than ever. More pow­er to your typewriter and print­ing press. This country is greatly indebted to you." The great Foundations need to be sent to the laundry in the opin­ion of G. H. Shults of Los Angeles who adds that <~these Foundations were built up by over-charging customers for goods and are now contaminating and trying to wreck our schools and the government." A Negro has made application for admission to Virginia Military Academy even though the presi­dent of the Academy says that the courses he wants are available at Howard University, 'Negro Uni­versity near Washington. It is probably the work of the trouble­making organization. the NAACP. In San Antonio a Negro prize­fighter feels that his "civil rights" are being violated so he has filed a suit in that city challenging the state boxing law which prohibits bouts between white and colored people. Stalin really started some­thing when he instructed his fol­lowers in this country to stir up the Negroes of the South.
