Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 12 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JANUARY, 1961 No. I Callow Revolutionaries Are In The Saddle And Ready To Ride Off In All Directions Mink Coats and Cadillacs May Have To Be Bootlegged Like Bathtub Gin . Or. J . Kenneth Galbraith who has been widely publicized as chief ad vtser to M r. John F. Kennedy and who inspired many of the economic policies w~i ch the President·elect sponsored during the campaign, has a s t rong antipathy amounting to mania against such articles of commerce as mink coats and Cadillac cars. Needless to say, Dr. Galbra it~ is connected with Harvard University where he per~orm s as an econom1st and where many of the strange and off.beat theones of government which have plagued the American people in recent years were hatched . Dr. Galb raith is pe rhaps the nation's most dedicated and vocal ex4 ponent of the idea that th e American people, in making their purchases, have no right to buy what they want but should be compelled to acquire only those items which discriminating eggheads think they should have. Like all members of his cult, Dr. Galbraith has wr itten several books fn which he has committed to cold type for the benefit of posterity his belief in the total regimentation of human behavior. Sprinkled libera lly throughout the pages of Professor Galbraith's volumes are bitter attacks against those Americans who are so remiss in social consciousness that they occasionally break down and buy some4 thing they don't actually need to eat or to keep themselves covered. His diatribes against mink coats and Cadillac cars are so pronounced as to suggest that if his proposals as adviser to the President are in4 corporated into our national policies, the day may soon come when those who covet such luxurious items may have to get them from bootleggers or smugglers much in the same manner that they had to procure their bathtub gin and white mule during the days of Prohibition. College Professors Ask Kennedy To Adopt 'Be Kind To Communists~ Policy Thirty·two historians at twenty4 three American colleges and uni4 versities wrote to President·elect Kennedy recently urging him to ' 1consider a new course in world affairs" which included the recog .. nition of Red China and East Ger .. many. The historians said that "the dead hand of the past" must not be allowed to figure in his foreign policy and that the recognition of these two Communist countries would be a long step toward achieving peace. Other Communist-inspired re .. quests which the historians made of Mr. Kennedy were the banning of nuclear tests and a system of inspection which would not be too stringent to pass muster with the Soviets. Those signing the appeal, but whose names were not made pub4 11c were said to be "professors of American diplomatic history," two Dear Alma Mater (Dallas Morning News) Harvard University continues to be one of the best sources for gov­ernment jobs, with President-elect Kennedy pulling names of profes­sors out of his mortar board in rapid succession. It Is fortunate that Mr. Kennedy attended a school with a large faculty. If he had been a graduate of a smaller institution, students there would be teaching themselves by now. Harvard probably retains enough faculty members to drive a full measure of Liberalism into student heads. of whom were formerly professors at Oxford. The name of the professor who presented the appeal was w. L. Neumann, of Goucher College. Millions of anxious Americans have scanned the list of those who will compose the administration of the next Pre$ident of the United States and have turned away with a shudder. Any faint hope they might have entertained for a return of Constitutional Government has been abandoned. The only difference between the appointees of John F. Kennedy in 1960 and Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932 is that the current crop of nominees are younger, bolder and more aggressive and more firmly obsessed with the belief that they know all the answers. Also, even more than their counterparts in 1932, they are deeply rooted in the conviction that all au­thority stems from Washington and that the only function of the citixen is to furnish the money to pay for further wild­eyed forays into Socialism. During the next four years--un­less there's immediate and concerted patriotic action-we can look for the Sovereign States of the American Union to dwindle to the stat us of weak and helpless satellites in a vast Federa l Empire as the services formerly performed by those great Commonwealths are taken over by hordes of brash young zealots equipped with Harvard diplomas, brief cases full of directives and the gleam of a fanatic In their eye. I~ you are a_ na~ive America~ citizen over fifty years old, you were born m a Const1tut1onal Republic where the most priceless possession of its people was freedom. Your Constitutional right to manage your own affairs, to provide for your own security and that of your family and to accumulate a sur· plus against old age, sickness and other emergencies incident to the un­certainties of life, was unquestioned. The idea that a strong centralized government in Washington would one day step in, shove you aside and take over the .intimate a nd personal responsibilities which had been the source of your inspiration to work, to own and to achieve for those you loved, was as remote as the stars in the heavens above. It is true, of course, that at times you were sorely beset with troubles, trials and tribulations which seemed overpowering and some· times you were broke, disheartened and discouraged to the point where you felt that you couldn't go on. But Federal bureaucrats had not yet robbed you of character, back­bone and initiative; your brain had not been washed until it had softened to the consistency of jelly and you were still unsold on the idea that living off the taxes extorted from your fellow Americans was not only an honorable means of existence but was an escape from personal exer­tion to which you were justly entitled. Also, you had not yet adopted the current vicious concept of filial duty in the relation of parent and child. You had respect, gratitude and the instinct of protective custody toward the mother who had walked in the shadow of the Valley of Death in bringing you into the world and whose work-worn hands had slaved for you in sickness and in health and toward the father whose bent shoulders and bowed gray head at4 tested to a life of toil and sacrifice in educating you and bringing you to man's estate. You would have properly held yourself as beneath human contempt if you had cast your parents aside in the autumn of their life and shunted them off onto the tender mercies of a Washington welfare agency or depended on Federal hand-outs to provide medical and other care in their old age which the laws of God, and your own conscience, assigned to you as your own personal and sacred obligation. So you bucked up, put iron in your spine and with that measure of courage and fortitude with which God endows all His creatures worthy (Continued on Page 21 Millions of Americans Think it - The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE January, 1961 Communists Successful In One Campaign And Are Now Ready For Next ACtivity The American people had as weB • not even given a trial, but are shot prepare for the latest barrage of on suspicion of the most minute c~o::a~a;~: sZ~:"~~~e~~::~~s~~ offense. custom bitterly attacked by all the Having made great progress in forces which the Soviets command the campaign for racial mixing in in this country. ~h~~r~~~n~~ur~~~h:~~~=res~l.d M~~ The latest assault is for the pro- isters of the Gospel, Educationists tection of criminals and is in the and the candidates for the Presi­form of an organized campaign dency on their evil racial policies, against capital punishment.

The more criminals such as mur­derers, rapists, and robbers who are turned loose on society, the better Communism flourishes and it is, of course, for this reason that the campaign to do away with capital punishment was launched by the Soviets. ln this case, as in all others, the Communists do not practice what they preach. In Russia not only are criminals put to death but also many innocent people and they are agenda. Watch the demand for this ac­tion spread over the country like wild-fire, proving all over again that all radical changes in the United States are dictated from the Kremlin. According to plan, the plea for the abolishment of capital punishment will be based on the thread-bare argument that to put a criminal to death is a Hviolation of Christian principles." The Soviet propaganda machine enlists only the support of the most outwardly respectable elements of our society and, therefore~ many notable and distinguished persons may be expected to join in this campaign. Communist Fight Against Un-American Activities Committee Will Be Pushed The Un-American Activities Committee of the House of Rep­resentatives has been unrelenting in its attempts to expose Com­munists in strategic places in the Federal government and in other posts of influence in the United States and since this is dangerous business they have been marked for slaughter. The big push against the Com­mittee is said to be slated for Jan· uary soon after the inauguration of the new administration. The rank and file members of the opposition to the Un-American Activities Committee are, of course, documented Communists, Com­munist Fronters and Communist sympathizers who would naturally be expected to fight to the death against any organized group which seeks to expose their nefarious plot against the security of the American Republic, but the chief ramrod of the campaign to abolish the Committee is Congressman James Roosevelt of California. And any dumbfounded and shocked American citizen who con­tends that this man should be tried and convicted for giving aid and comfort to our enemies had just as well disabuse his mind of that hope. He would have been thirty years ago but such behavior is common~ place now and disloyalty on the part of those entrusted with national leadership now commands no reaction among the people be­yond a shrug and a Jifted eyebrow. And thus the nation's betrayal into the hands of our enemies goes merrily on. As Mr. Kennedy takes office as President, there are 2,250,000 em­ployees in 2,500 different Federal Boards, Bureaus and Commissions, all eating off the taxpayers of the United States. If Mr. Kennedy runs true to form, and there is no rea­son to think that he won't, by the time he leaves office, there will probably be 3,000,000 parasites on the Federal payroll for the poor over-burdened tax slaves to sup~ port. Louis XIV said that a cannon was the last argument of Kings. Transposing the contention of the evil French ruler, we suggest that the ballot is the last argument of the American citizen, so in casting it in the future be sure you employ it in the preservation of the Re­public you love. According to published reports, one of the main qualifications for those appointed to high office by President-elect Kennedy is that such appointee be "devoted to the principles of the President-elect." Nothing was said about being "de­voted to the principles of the American form of government and the Constitution." After all, the po~ litical "principles" of Kennedy are under challenge by about half of the electorate who voted against him. Also, he is, like all other oc~ cupants of the office, merely a passing and transient figure while the principles of the Republic are supposed to be eternal. Callow Revolutionaries I Co~!~~·~ tom of being called men, you overcame the misfortunes which assailed you. In the uncontaminated and unperverted state of your mind at that period of life, it never would have occurred to you to write to Washington and ask for help. Also, you were strengthened in your determination to conquer ad­versity and wrest success from failure by the realization that into each life some rain must fall and that Divinity never intended that the journey of mankind from the cradle to the casket should be strewn with roses or th~ struggle of mortals for the ultimate goal should be shorn of trial, trava1! and pain. Briefly, you were a responsible American citizen and master of your own destiny and the sole function of those you elected and sent to Washington to represent you was to perform in such manner that a climate of Freedom would be perpetuated in which you might shape this destiny toward worthy and honorable ends. In other words, you were fortunate enough to be born in a country whose governing system, at the time of your birth, reflected the divine blessings of freedom, independence, individual initiative and all the other basic principles toward which mankind had yearned since the first search began for a Charter of Liberty on which to erect a form of government as nearly perfect as was humanly possible to conceive it. Meantime, what have you, as an American citizen born into a free Constitutional Republic, done to deserve and to show your gratitude for the blessings which were conferred on you at birth? How active have you been in trying to do your part in perpetuating and preserving this golden heritage which was handed down to you without effort or sacrifice on your part? Uncounted thousands have, of course, contributed their share in trying to keep freedom intact in this country and to prevent the total dissolution of Constitutional Government in the United States. · They have done this as lecturers, columnists, commentators over radio and television, on the public platform and in the press. They have done it by writing and publishing patriotic periodicals, by setting up organizations and groups, by writing letters to the local papers and by holding neighborhood gatherings to inform their friends and neighbors of the International Communist Conspiracy to overthrow the American government and which has contacts in every sector of American civic, cultural, religious, social, political and economic circles. Many of them have engaged in these activities at their own expense and at great cost in time, effort and money. But the great majority of the American people have calmly sat back with their hands folded and watched the disgraceful surrender of their Personal, Property and States Rights to grasping and power-drunk bureaucrats in Washington who, in grabbing for this power, are merely carrying out the demands of International Conspirators that all authority in this country be centered in Washington in order to make our take.over into a One-World Government easier to bring about. And this surrender of our Rights and Freedoms which has been going on steadily for a quarter of a century, will become Unconditional in the years just ahead when, and if, the Los Angeles Manifesto is put into effect as the top leaders of the new administration have sworn to do. There are 537 members of both Houses of Congress in Washington who are sworn-and paid-to do a job which they have left undone and that Is to uphold the Constitution of the United States and to protect the Rights and Freedoms of the American people. Soon they will be put to the test again and will be called on to vote away the remaining Sovereignty of the States and the people. Obviously, the time is ripe for some vigorous prodding of these derelict public servants by the voters back home. Our humble suggestion for the New Year is that if only a million people--out of a total population of some 180,000,000-would exercise their sovereignty as citizens they could bring an immediate halt to the continued surrender of the American Republic into the hands of the enemies of Freedom regardless of whether such enemies reside in the Soviet Union or in the city of Washington, D.C. Of course such patrio:ts would have to work through Congress as that body is the only medium we have in petitioning for the redress of wrongs. These patriotic Americans should tennent their two senators and their congressman with so much attention that it might add up to a form of human torture but that would be unimportant if the ultimate end is gained and the further surrender of the Rights and Freedoms of the American people is stopped. Unless defenders of Constitutional Government act quickly and ef~ feetively in enlisting the support of their senators and congressmen in opposing Socialist legislation based on the Los Angeles Manifesto, we face the grave danger that callow, immature and precocious political prodigies, reeling under the impact of heady and unaccustomed power, may do the Republic in. England's railroads which were "nationalized" by a Socialist gov­ernment in 1948 are now reported as being $1,000,000,000.00 in the hole. Nobody expected anything else except the intellectual perverts who can't seem to learn that poli~ ticians cannot run a business bet~ ter than the men who have spent a lifetime meeting payrolls and fac­ing all the other problems incident to the conduct of an industrial enterprise. One of the principal reasons why the State of the Union is at an all·time low, is that we are represented in State and National office by political climbers who have no convictions of their own and merely try to ape those whom they regard as being popular with the public. A political climber is as obnoxious to a real American as that pitiable specimen of humanity, a social climber. UJ b< bl January, 1961 At Least It's One Way To Make A Living Perhaps the most comical fea­ture of a Presidential campaign in the United States is the rash of political polls which mushroom all over the place. And no group takes themselves more seriously than the profession­al pollsters who make their living from the art of political sorcery and peer into the future to divine what will happen in the days to come. Read their predictions about the chances of a particular candidate for victory and it will be found to contain more ifs, ands and buts than the dictionary, and they al­ways leave plenty of loopholes to crawl through in the event they are wrong. All a voter learns after careful­ly perusing these polls is that one of the candidates is going to be elected which is poor consola­tion because he knew that without benefit of a poll. And his own guess is as good as anybody's anyway. But it all makes for a merry guessing game and no harm is done even if nothing constructive is gained. We have found throughout the years that the safest and surest way to find out who is going to be elected is to just be patient and wait until the ballots are counted. Perhaps the reason we have de­veloped patience along this line is the fact that in recent years, it does not make much difference any way whether it's Tweedledee or Twee­dledum. When the Civil Service Act was passed in 1883, there were only a THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE To Subscribers and Friends of The Southern Conservative The Fort Worth-Tarrant County Unit of Pro-America will honor Mrs. Ida M. Darden, editor and publisher of the Southern Conservative, with a dinner at 7:00P.M. on Wednesday, January 25th at River Crest Country Club. Mr. Tom Anderson, editor of Farm and Ranch Magazine, Nashville, Tennessee, noted lecturer and writer on economic and political affairs, will be the principal speaker and Dr. Robert Morris, President of Dallas University, will be Master of Cere­monies. It is the hope of the Pro-America unit that all friends of the Southern Conservative who can arrange to do so will attend this dinner and pay tribute to a woman whose brilliant editorials in the interest of constitutional government have inspired many to designate her as the First Lady of the Conservative Cause in the South. Reservations for the dinner should be in by Monday, Janu­ary 23rd. Price of tickets, $3.50. Informal. For reservations call or write Mrs. E. W.

Charter How any American with the reasoning capacity of a ten-year­old child can regard the United Nations as of benefit to this country or as a medium of preserving the peace is beyond us. The U.N. Charter provides that it is to be composed only of peace­loving nations and that its objec­tive is to prevent war throughout the world. And yet, in no instance, has any nation been barred from membership because such nation is an aggressor and an outlaw except Red China and it is generally con­ceded that it is only a matter of time until those bandits are also accepted as brothers in that One· World fraternity. mand that this nest of international spies be removed from the United States and American membership in the outfit cancelled by the Sen­ate which voted us into it.

This was presumably on instruc­tions of the outgoing President whose concern in the well~being of other nations has always been his most pronounced characteristic and his dedication to ultimate One­World government has been evi­dent in his every action during his public career. The most obvious purpose which the United Nations is achieving is in helping to spend the United States out of existence as Lenin advocated in the long ago and as an instrument to deprive the Amer­ican people of such few freedoms as may be left to them when do­mestic tyrants get through robbing them of their Constitutional rights.

Three journalistic carpet bag­gers the South would love most to do without- Hodding Carter of Greenville, Mis~ssippi; Ralph Mc­Gill of Atlanta, Georgia, and Harry Ashmore of Little Rock, Arkansas. A rich St. Louis spinster offered, through the medium of the public press, to make a $500,000 loan to the public schools of New Orleans provided they operated on a mixed racial basis. Later, she was able to glean additional publicity and get her picture in the paper to boot when she offered to make it an out­right gift. The woman's name was Steinberg. An Associated Press release says that Arthur J. Goldberg, the new Secretary of Labor, "is a man with a steel trap mind." We have no doubt that this is true but the im­portant thing is who is going to be caught in this usteel trap" when this strong labor Union partisan begins his work of conciliation be­tween labor and management? Page J It's Easy To Be Free With The Other Fellow's Money There was a time in the history of this nation when Congress was the legal custodian of taxpayers' funds and only that body could ap­propriate money and then only after a law had been passed and funds were necessary to put it into operation. Now all that is changed and ap­parently almost anybody connected with the Federal government can dip down into the Treasury. On December 15, a press release with a Washington dateline said that Christian A. Herter, outgoing Secretary of State, had, out of a clear sky, decided that four newly ''independent" African States need­ed financial support and promised to give it to them. In letters to officials of the Ivory Coast, Upper Volta, Niger and Da­homey, Herter pledged a "signifi­cant United States contribution'' after congratulating them on their ''independence.'' There was no mention of the "o\mount of this "contribution" but perhaps Mr. Herter figured that this was just a detail and that it is none of the business of the com­mon herd how much he gives away and that the only function of the taxpayer in such cases is to dig up the money to pay the obligation. If this were Mr. Herter's own money, we could understand and perhaps would applaud his gener~ osity to under·privileged people, but never will we be able to com­prehend a situation where bureau­crats seem to have absolute au~ thority to toss around the taxpay­ers' money like drunken sailors on shore leave. Meantime, we are searching the Constitution in what so far has been a futile effort to find a pro­vision which authorizes an appoint­ed official of the Federal govern­ment to promise financial assist­ance to the people of a foreign country. Fort Worth Citizen Calls Mr. Sam Raybum's Hand During the widespread demand for a re·count of the allegedly fraudulent votes in Texas during the recent election, Mr. Sam Ray­burn, perennial office-holding poli­tician and Speaker of the House of Representatives, was quoted in the press as saying of the Republicans who insisted on the recount: "I fear these people are creating the impression in foreign lands that in America elections can be bought and stolen." To which a Mr. W. M. White of Fort Worth replied in a letter to the press: "I do not recall just what Mr. Rayburn had to say about the 1948 senatorial race between Coke Ste .. venson and Lyndon B. Johnson, nor do I know what the people in foreign lands thought about it, but I do know what a lot of people in Texas thought." The Fort Worth citizen was re­ferring to Johnson's first race for the United States Senate in which he was defeated by Mr. Stevenson until Political Boss Parr in South Texas, several days after the polls had closed, allegedly came across with enough votes of dead Mexi­cans to put Mr. Johnson over.

The most recent example is New Ze?.land which, after a three-year dose of socialistic rule, last week restored the free enterprise system to power. The votes of New Zea­landers reflected their conclusion from three economically unhappy years that Socialism just doesn't work. Great Britain, of course. offers even more poignant evidence of the failure of socialism and the detrimental effects experienced by the British economy during the na­tion's years under Laborite rule. The British, mindful of this fact, now are veering- more and more away from sociali~m to the extent that the Sociali~t Labor Party now apnears so weak it may never re­gain power. The United States has not, so far, been confronted with socialism under that name. But socialistic decay in the form of giveaways, "welfare" handouts and govern­ment intervention in private af­fairs has for years been gnawing away at the foundations of our free enterprise economy. The dan­ger can still be stopped if Ameri­cans will take to heart the bitter lesson of other nations. There is nothing wYong in this country which could not be cor­rected by taking from Washington poJiticians the power of the purse. THE S 0 U THE R N C 0 N S E R VAT IV E Jan""'Y· 1961 ------------------------------- Ward Bond. Great Patr~ot And Loyal American. Passes Away All good Americans are mourn­ing the untimely death of Ward Bond, star of the television prod~c­tion "Wagon Train" who died in Dallas early in November follow­ing a heart attack. Mr. Bond was one of the piti­fully few persons in the enter­tainment industry who could be truthfully classed as a patriot and as a believer in American Consti­tutional Government. In a medium filled to ove1ilow.-. ing with Reds of varying shades, he stood out like a beacon light while unfailingly ra ising his voice in behalf of sound and sane Ameri­can principles, in season and out. He was a patriot in an area of activity where it was not easy to stand up and be counted and where the majority of his associates were noted rather for their Red leanings and for the promotion of pro-Com­munist causes. Because of this great handicap of uncongenial associates, Mr. Bond's staunch loyalty to his coun­try and its institutions commanded special admiration from the ranks of American patriots who a lso pay tribute to such other dedicated champions of Americanism in the entertainment industry as Jeanette McDonald, Joe E. Brown. Leo Car­rillo, Charles Coburn, Mae West, John Wayne, Lawrence Welk, Rob­ert Taylor, Adolohe Men.iou, Co­rinne Griffith, Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Ginger Rogers, Robert Montgomery, J. Carroll Naish, Lo­retta Young, Gloria Swanson and a few-a very few-others. Texans Join In Fight On House Un-American Activities Committee According to press reports, six Texans have voluntarily placed themselves on Americanism's black list by signing the Communist-in­spired petition asking the Congress of the United States to do away with the Un-American Activities Committee of that body. The Un-American Activities Committee was officially set up by Congress to investigate espion­age in this country and to expose those who have been identified with efforts to overthrow the American government. Because of the success of the Committee in revealing the names and activities of thousands of Com­munist agents and sympathizers it has incurred the deep displeasure of Domestic Reds and their allies who are becoming more insistent every day that the Committee cease its activities and Jet the ene-mies of this country operate with­out interference. Two of the signers of the peti­tion to discontinue the Un-Arneri­can Activities Committee were pro­fessors from the University of Texas, C. E. Ayers and George I. Sanchez. Another was J.

New Hampshire Senator Says Former President's Views Of Little Weight A policy statement filled with horse sense such as seldom ema­nates from members of either House of Congress was given out on January 2 by Senator Styles Bridges of New Hampshire in out­lining procedure of the Republican delegation in the present session of Congress. He said that his Republican col­leagues in the Senate would pur­sue an independent policy in legis­lative matters now that they are cut loose from White House ties and that this action may result in increased opposition to foreign aid and other spending programs. The New Hampshire senator made it clear that he does not be­lieve the views of retiring Presi­dent Eisenhower will carry much weight with Republicans in Con­gress. ··we Republicans in Con­gress will listen to suggestions from anybody who wants to make them," the senator stated, "but nobody on the outside is going to dictate to us on policy." Senator Bridges, who heads the Republican policy committee in the Senate, expressed the hope that the Republicans in that body would have the help of Southern Democrats in "stopping some of the wild spending schemes which were pledged in the Democratic platform." The trouble between Conserva­tive Republicans in Con~ress and the White House, of course, stemmed from the fact that Mr. Eisenhower was not actually a Re­publican and had no sympathy for the sound conservative principles which once were part and parcel of the formerly great party of Lin­coln. In many of his proposals he went as far to the left as any New or Fair Dealer and was able to keep Republicans in Congress in line be­cause of political considerations only. Hollywood Actors And Writers File Suit ACJains·t Studios For some reason, sympathizers of Communism are breaking out all over in the United States and boldly demanding their "right" to belong to grouos and organizations which advocate the overthrow of the American government and, at the same time, to enjoy all the privileges and benefits accorded those citizens who are ready to fight and give their lives to the preservation of that same govern­ment. This fact was emphasized re­cently by the action of some of the "Hollywood Ten" composed of actors and writers who filed suit a...,ainst maior movie studios for $7.500,000 in damaees and the abo­lition of an alleged blacklist which they claim prevents their employ­ment in the entertainment indus­try. Some of those filing suit were convicted in 1947 and sent to _iail for contempt of Congress after re­fusing to say whether or not they had ever been Communists. The suit was filed in a Federal court in Washington. D.C. and will probably be carried to the Supreme Court in view of tl-te leniency of that body toward offenders of this type. The nlaintiffs who contend they were cfeorived of work in Holly­wooci bec~use they were on the al­leoed bl2cklist are Nedrick Young, Albert 1".1altz, John Howard Law­son, Herbert Biberman, Lester Cole, Robert L. Richards, Frederick I. Rinaldo, Philip Stevenson, Gale Sonder~aard, Alvin Hammer, Mary Virginia Farmer and Shimen Rus­kin. THAT'S THUNG THEM, BROTHER The following true story was told us by one who was present and who related it to us verbatim. It has to do with a type of old­fashioned Negro whom all South· erners once knew and loved. An elderly retired colored preacher was presiding over the pulpit in a Fort Worth colored Bap­tist church in the absence of the regular pastor. Believing in fire and brimstone, he pulled no punches in informing his congregation of the fate which awaited them in the world to come. After charging them with being guilty of practicall_v every sin in the whole category of human misde­meanors, he wound up with this clincher: "And, furthermore, even• ·me you gets a chance, you heists a bottle of beer, wraps yo lips around it and don't take it down until every last drap is gone." The crowning insult to self­respecting and honorable Ameri­can taxpayers is for Washington political leaders to take their hard­earned money and send it to the savage black beasts in the Congo whose murder, rape and mutilation of helpless white people, consti­tutes one of the blackest pages in the history of civilization.

Pro-Communist Bias Of News Media Handicap In fight On Communism One of the greatest obstacles to the fight on Communism in the United States is the attitude of many editors, commentators, rep porters and others connected with the various news media in this country. For instance, a ruler of a country like Russia, Yugoslavia, or Cuba, in other words a head of a Com­munist country, is almost invari­ably referred to as a "Premier" and treated with respect in news or editorial discussions. But Tru­jillo of the Dominican Republic is always called a "Dictator" and is played up in a way to make him look ridiculous. This, presumably, is based on the fact that our policy is to cod­dle Communist dictators such as Khrushchev, Tito and Castro but to denounce Trujillo who is an anti· Communist dictator. This pro-Communist policy on the part of the press is also force­fully demonstrated in the case of integration of the races in schools and any disturbance resulting therefrom. When Negroes picket, parade, wave banners or engage in rioting, they are always referred to as "students" or "youths" and are al­ways ''orderly." But White stu­dents are pictured as "disorderly teen-age mobs" or "packs" if they engage in activity to prevent inte­gration. It's pretty disgusting and dis­couraging but not to be wondered at since it has been revealed time and time again in testimony before investigating committees that the Soviets have gone out of their way to brainwash the press in this coun­try and their activity along that line has been as meticulous as their campaign to pervert educators and ministers of the gospel. It is tragic to have to face up to the fact that a large part of the American press has been so infil­trated that any movement to op­pose Communism or Soviet poli­cies in this country, is distorted, slanted and biased by those who feed news and editorials to the American public.

This activity was the proposed production of a play by the Young Peoples Department of such churches titled "The Crier Calls" which purports to portray "today's struggle of peoples for justice and fulfillment," but which actually sounds a call for bloody revolution. Production notes for the play include these instructions: "The theme of this drama is today's struggle of peoples for justice and fulfillment. The various aspects of the struggle, developed by the chorus and in­terpreters are: nationalism, economic exploitation of workers, unem­ployment, color prejudice, land hunger, lost faith, cultural breakdown. It would be well for the chorus to be in back stage with blue light. Since South Africa and Kenya inspired the last chorus in particular, it would be advisable to have Negro members of the chorus in the front ranks." Some of the lines for the performers to recite in the play include these familiar notes: "We have asked, 1Who is the cause of our hunger,' and our hearts have answered, 'They who sit in the pleasant houses, they who have bought our hands and would deny us a soul, they who have bought the rulers for insurance that their profit be undiminished.' We must upset their world that we may live; we are men and would be free. We will make havoc in the earth, throw down the old, raise the new. Agitate! Liberate! Pillage! Plunder! Strike! Fire! Burn!" And this chant by the entire cast: "In that day that shall surely come we shall cleanse ourselves. We shall heap their corpses in the street; with a haiJ of deadly blows in one dark night we shall pay back these thousand years of the black man's shame in the blood of our enemies, we shall wash out the indignities of those years, and their blood shaJI be the balm for our pierced and aching hearts." Emphasizing the call to bloody revolution is this final warning of the ensemble: "We will do what we must do, sound the drums, gather the warriors, light the ceremonial fires and summon the assembly to hear our vows. Let us take up our swords and anoint them with blood. Let us strike till the ann is weary, till the land pours forth a thousand crimson rivers, tip again we inherit the land of our fathers, for in the shedding of blood Is remission and release from the curses of our children. We will cleanse ~ ourselves in blood, blood, blood, blood" ... Since this type of aCtivity is in line with a recent warning by Hon­orable J. Edgar Hoover to the effect that Communists are tightening their pfforts to infiltrate the religious youth of the country, some of the r 1armed parents of the young people involved in the proposed per­form"' nee in one city notified the FBI and as this is written, there is some daub~ that the play will be allowed to be produced in those places where parf'T'I's have reported the matter to the proper authorities. S"'eculation Rife About Reasons For Naming Of Housing Head Mr. Kennedy's unbelievable action in naming a Negro as Director of the National Housing Authority in view of present explosive racial relations, has inspired many unconfirmed reports concerning the mat­ter, and his reasons for this astounding action. Since he received almost the solid support of Negroes in his cam­paign, naturally Mr. Kennedy wanted to give some prominent members of the race recognition. At the same time he was fully aware that Henry Cabot Lodge's unauthorized crack about a Negro in the Cabinet was one of the major causes of Nixon's defeat. It is hinted, therefore, that he knew well in advance that his offer of the Cabinet job of Postmaster General to Negro Congressman William Dawson of Illinois would be refused because Dawson wanted to keep his seniority in the House of Representatives. This offer would be a gracious gesture of gratitude and in the event of Dawson's refusal, would, at the same time, spare him the politically dangerous proposition of a racially integrated Cabinet. This, however, did not fool or appease the smart boys in the New York NAACP who refused to settle for anything less than what they got -one of their number at the head of an agency supervising housing fa· cilities for tenants who represent a ratio of perhaps one hundred White persons to each Negro involved. These rumors may or may not be true since the peculiar and unprece­dented action of the President-elect in the matter would naturally give rise to all sorts of speculation. He may have made the appointment on his own initiative and because he wanted to which is, of course, his privilege, but to say that this appointment could further inflame a situation which might get out of hand, is putting it mildly. "Not the cowardly cry that 'noth­Jng can be done' but the clarion call that 1it can be done' because it MUST be done should be heard on all sides, to repudiate those of little faith and to give those who are weary fresh hope." - Texans for America. No nation is free when the right to own property is limited or re· stricted by thos~ who govern. The first law of nature was that all mammals including man should feed, clothe and shelter themselves without aid or interference. The Federal government has now taken over this responsibility which has thrown nature out of balance and we are paying the penalty in the confusion, chaos and corruption which is prevalent throughout the land. The President Could Have Looked Further And Done Much Better It is claimed that in view of the closeness of the election, Mr. Ken­nedy toned down his selections in the matter of appointees and re­frained from naming some ultra·Liberals for important jobs whom he had in mind and that, therefore, his Cabinet and his official family will be slightly more Conservative than he had planned or wanted. We wouldn't know about that but if he had intended to reach further to the left and choose even more pronounced Welfare Staters, then it must have been an act of Merciful Providence which decreed that only approximately 111,000 out of some 68,000,000 votes should separate the two candidates. With the selection of Dean Rusk as Secretary of State, Adlai Stevenson as Ambassador to the United Nations and Chester Bowles and Soapy Williams as Assistant Secretaries, there is little chance that the element in that agency which was responsible for the sell·out of China to the Communists, for ousting Batista and installing Castro as Prime Minister of Cuba, withdrawal of recognition of the Dominican Republic on Communist insistence and other foreign policies inimical to the interests of the United States, will be purged from the department. Dean Rusk comes fresh to the job from his position as President of the Rockefeller Foundation where he was largely in charge of making grants and in spending millions of dollars which, being Rockefeller money, naturally was used in promoting the cause of International Socialism throughout the world. Adlai Stevenson is the most thoroughly rejected and repudiated candidate for the Presidency since William Jennings Bryan and it is not believed that Mr. Kennedy would have dared inflict him on the Ameri­can people except as the reported price for the support of Eleanor Roosevelt. Stevenson and Chester Bowles, pawn and mouthpiece of UNESCO and other One-World agencies, are perhaps the two most ob­jectionable figures to advocates of good government that the President­elect could have chosen, while Soapy Williams' only claim to distinction is that he was successful during the years he was Governor of Michigan in bankrupting that great State through his insatiable demands for Socialist legislation and give·away programs. As this is written it is suggested in press reports that Charles E. Bohlen and even Dean Acheson will be added to Mr. Kennedy's stable of left-wing theorists before he has completed the list of his nominees. But perhaps the most blatant disregard for ethics and good taste, to say nothing of political judgment, was his selection of his brother Robert as Attorney General of the United States in which he will be in position to use the police power to back up any executive directive no ~atte~ how restrictive of the rights and freedoms of the people such d1rect1ve may be. We had thought that the bayonet-wielding advocate, Mr. William P. Rogers, represented the extreme in that job but we tremble to think what might have happened if Brothi:r Robert had been the Attorney General during the days of Little Rock. Little Interest Shown In Texas U.S. Senator's Rac:e Mr. John Tower, Republican, who made such a surprising race against Lyndon Johnson for the United States Senate from Texas, has indicated that he may make the race again. The office was vacated when Senator Johnson de· cided that he couldn't hold down both of the two jobs to which he was curiously elected, and re­signed. Mr. William Blakeley, Democrat of Dallas, who will fill the interim until a regular election, has an­nounced that he will run for a full term. Ordinarily, Mr. Blakeley is re­garded as a Consetvative, but the fact that he is being named by Governor Daniel for the interim job casts some confusion into the situation for Governor Daniel is not usual1y partial to Conserva­tives. Congressman Jim Wright of Fort Worth is also a candidate as are several others from over the State, most of them either Liberals and Ieft·wingers or fence straddlers. Texas has been practically with­out distinguished representation in the Upper House for so long that the people wouldn't know what to do if they waked up some morning and found that the Lone Star State had elected a statt::sman to that office. The unlimited power of govern­ment over the purse hangs like a death sentence over the head of a citizen. Widespread Fraud Charges Throw Cloud On Election It is now pretty widely agreed that the November election was not on the up and up and that if it had not been for the irregularities ~~~u~t~ol~~g~ntd he:z:s~~~a~e~i~~~~~~: This is unfortunate for it starts off the new administration under a cloud which might, or might not, have been cleared up if there had been prompt, thorough and honest investigation in those areas where fraud was charged. Professional vote thieves were active in Chicago, according to press reports where thousands of votes were claimed to be either thrown out or miscounted. The same was reported to be true in Texas although amateurs and not professionals are credited with manipulating the results there. Other States were also involved in the charges but the apathy of the Republicans, except in a few cases, and including Mr. Nixon himself concerning the matter made it easy for the whole affair to be brushed under the rug. It Is to be hoped that proper precautions will be taken to guard voting booths in the future in order to circumvent charges of dishon­esty in the balloting which were circulated throughout the country in the case of the 1960 election. January, 1961 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 7 Federal Dictatorship Set Up In The Sovereign State of Louisiana The cities of Moscow in Russia and New Orleans in the State of Louisiana in the U.S.A. have something in common. Both are being run by Dictators whose power is absolute. The Moscow Dictator is, of course, Nikita Khrushchev and the New Orleans Dictator is J. Skelly Wright, a Federal Judge. Neither was ever elected to any office by the people over whom they rule with an Iron Hand. Khrushchev was able to reach his present position as Dictator over millions of people through inheritance of the office which came into be· ing with the Revolution of 1917. J. Skelly Wright achieved total power in Louisiana through highly questionable decisions of the Supreme Court holding that segregation of public schools was illegal after previous rulings by the same Court for almost a century held the opposite. ln line with that unfortunate decision, a total Dictatorship has been built up in Louisiana and New Orleans is now being held up as the horrible example of what happens in the United States when Sovereign Citizens elect to run their own affairs which the Constitution authorizes them to do. Under this Dictatorship the last vestige of States Rights so thor· oughly enunciated in the Constitution has been totally abolished and the sacred and underlying American principle that all just government is based on the consent of the governed has been shamelessly abandoned. The Louisiana Legislature, seeking ways to continue the orderly operation of the schools in a manner that has proved satisfactory to both races since Reconstruction Days, passed several laws to this end which the Federal Judge promptly declared un-Constitutional along with the snide remark, according to the press, that such laws were passed merely to "let the legislators blow off steam" and that they didn't mean anything at all. On another occasion, he is quoted in the press as having asked elected officials to "keep out of it" and to stop interfering. At this writing this power-drunk Federal representative has taken over all functions in the Commonwealth of Louisiana and is pro'viding an example of despotism never before equalled in a free Republic. If . he is allowed to continue to get by with it, the end of State Sovere1gnty has been reached, freedom is dead in the United States and the. status of the citizen is on a par with that of the slaves in the Soviet Umon. " Expenditures Of Agency Jump From 2 to 4 Billion Dollars Taxpayers who had hoped that-------- - ~~en ~~darWe~~!r~f w~~~hbeE~b~: After All, He Once Was ished as suddenly as it was set A Harvard Professor up eight years ago are, instead, going to be called on to double their contribution toward its up· keep. Whereas they were forced in 1952 to dig up $2,000,000,000 for its operation, President Eisenhower in his budget message to Congress asked for $4,000,000,000 to keep the outfit going during the fiscal year starting July I. There were many wishful and misguided Americans who hoped that since the principal idea in set- ; ting it up was to furnish jobs for the President's friends it would go out with his administration, but government agencies don't operate like that. They spread and spread like the fungus growths which they are and gather momentum and par· asites as they burgeon and mush­room into huge bureaucracies. Also, the agency has now be· come the focal point for the pro­gram for Socialized Medicine and Socialized Education through Fed­eral Aid and taxpayers had as well resign themselves to supporting this monstrosity in the style to which all government bureaus in­evitably become accustomed, and to paying heavier tribute as the years go by. From a subscriber in Salem, Vir­ginia: "You say it for all of us who lack your gift with words. I wish I had half your vocabulary to de­scribe what I think of your unique and wonderful paper. May your shadow never grow less.'' R. S. McNamara, named Secre­tary of Defense by John F. Ken­nedy, is reported in the press to be making a sacrifice of his stocks and personal holdings which will cost him over three million dollars in profits during the next three or four years. So he's giving up three million dollars in profits in order to take a job which will pay him a salary of $25,000 per year and what we want to know is-WHY? And don't anybody tell us that he is motivated solely by an altru­istic desire to serve his country because we won't buy that. We do not know Mr. McNamara, of course, and have not the slight­est intent to reflect on his personal integrity. lt is just that we are realistic enough to know that ex-Harvard professors who go into government do not do so in order to lend their influence and prestige to efforts for the restoration of Constitution­al Government and the preserva­tion of sound American principles. Invariably their motive is to in· spire and promote the new social and economic order so forcefully stressed in the Harvard curriculum and the program of World Social­ism which Ford and Rockefeller Foundation money· is advancing throughout the world. We hope that Mr. McNamara is an exception and that no new and untried theories and experiments so dear to his Alma Mater will be allowed to influence his efforts as head of our Defense and national security. There's 'Partiality' As Well As 'Discrimination' Because Of Color Millions of words have been written a b o u t "discrimination" against people because of their race or color but very little is said about "partiality" to people for the same reason. This partiality to a member of a minority group was strongly em­phasized when Congress convened early in January. Promoters of the New Frontier were anxious to revise and emas­culate the Rules Committee of the House which often blocks Socialist legislation. They especially wanted Congressman William C. Colmer of Mississippi, a conservative and strong champion of States Rights and Constitutional Government, re­moved. They commissioned Mr. Sam Rayburn to do the job. Always meticulous about upholding House rules in the past, Mr. Sam was not enthusiastic about the under­taking, but he was one of the casu­alties of the Kennedy forces at Los Angeles Convention and he had to obey. Being a strong party man he figured that Colmer should be purged but only because of the fact that he, Colmer, had refused to support Kennedy in the cam­paign and had voted for unpledged electors, and not because of his Rules Committee membership. It was the plan to take the Missis­sippi Congressman off the Rules Committee and demote him to a minor Committee. Then somebody brought up the point that Adam Clayton Powell of New York, Chairman of the Labor Committee, had also refused to support Adlai Stevenson in 1956 and had voted for Eisenhower. If Mr. Colmer had to give up his Committee membership, so did Powell. 1 That did it. Mr. Colmer is a White man and Powell is a Negro, and naturally nobody would try to unseat the Negro. j The Liberals will probably be able to mess up the Rules Com­mittee to some extent by other measures, but Mr. Colmer will not likely be removed. NAACP Brings About Integration Of Birth Certificates In New York If any future American citizen wants to be identified as to "race or color" and doesn't want to be put down as just another addition to humanity's great melting pot, he had better arrange to be born somewhere else than New York. For New York's female Health Commissioner, Dr. Leona Baum­gartner, has yielded to the current arbiter of all human destiny, the National Association for the Ad­vancement of Colored People, and has issued an edict that, hereafter, information will be eliminated from birth certificates which discloses any facts other than that the new­born infant is male or female and no reference to race or color will be tolerated. This aggressive female dictator conceded that there is a necessity for this information to be com· piled, however, for medical rea­sons. It appears that some dis­eases attack the Negro race more violently than is the case with White people and it seems that, so far, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has not been able to repeal this rule of nature. So the Health Commissioner is going to compel physicians who Adlai Stevenson, two-time loser in the Presidential sweepstakes, keeps repeating that the only in­terest he has in government is to "help." The only way he can help the cause of good government is to get lost. The founders of the American Republic exerted their utmost ef· forts in restraining the depravities of human nature by restricting the power of those who govern. officiate at births to actually break down and disclose whether the new arrival is black, white, yellow or deep purple but this will be for her private information only and will be kept in the files of the Public Health Department but will not be available to the public. What New York, or any of the screwballs who run it, does is no concern of ours but we would like to remark in passing that hereafter human beings born into the great Empire State will have less free­dom and recognition than dogs which are littered there. At least the blooded members of the canine family will be entitled to have their breed, their color and their blood strain registered in the kennel books at their birth, while human children will have to be content with merely being listed as two­legged animals of a certain address and a certain gender. And how is that, Mr. Khrushchev, for complying with the Soviet de· mand that all racial lines be erased in the United States? You never thought it would be so easy, did you, chum? King John at Runnymede in 1215 lengthened his life by surrendering his power over the people and giv­ing them a written contract which established their inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. On the day that Tito issued a denunciation of the United States before the world, our government in Washington sent to this Krem .. lin puppet $100,000,000.00. Surely the American taxpayers are en­titled to demand that this suicidal policy be stopped. Page I Way Is Being Cleared In Congress For New Frontier One of the first organized moves by the new Administration to put the Los Angeles Manifesto into effect and to establish the New Frontier will be an assault on the Rules Committees of the House and Senat"e. plans for which are well advapced according to press reports. The idea of emasculating these Committees is that any conscient­Ious objector to National Socialism on such committees may be shorn or his power to withhold objection­able bills from consideration by the respective Houses of Congress. As might be expected such staunch opponents of Constitution­al Government in the Senate as Paul Douglas of Illinois, Joseph Clark of Pennsylvania and Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota are lead­Ing the fight to smash the Rules and let Liberals have a free hand while Mr. Sam Rayburn, perennial guest at the taxpayers' table, is trying to figure out a way to topple the Rules in the House without having it appear that they were pushed. The outcome of this assault is problematical but there is no doubt that these two Committees are in for a terrific onslaught by political bulls in a china shop who are out to break everything which threat­ens to block the road to the New Frontier. Family Magazines Leave Christ Out Of Christmas The bitter attack which Interna~ tiona! Communism is making against Christianity in the United States and the campaign to take Christ out of Christmas is reflected in many areas of activity but it is especially noticeable in the case of so-called "family magazines" in this country. Many of these publications have been in existence for more than fifty years and in other years have emphasized the Spiritual aspect of Christmas on their covers and in their reading matter. For the past several years and especially this past Christmas, there was nothing to indicate that Christmas is anything more than a time for gaiety and all reference to its function as the Anniversary of the Birth of Christ was absent. If this had occurred in just one or two instances, it would not in~ dicate a trend or a planned pro­gram but the lack of any spiritual reference to Christmas in practical~ ly all established publications ap~ pearing on the news stands this Christmas shows that the deadly work of International Communists has been well done. Leon M'ba, President of the new~ ly "independent" nation of Gabon, one of the tribal nations recognized and received into the United Na­tions, had to complete a four-year penitentiary sentence before mak­ing the journey to U.N. headquar .. ters to be sworn in. He was con~ victed of eating his mother-in-law and had to serve out his term. Aside from the horror of Cannibal­ism implied in this incident, there fs a good aspect too. It proves that mothers-in-law are not the tough old gals they are cracked up to be. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE ~,ew Orleans Mothers Given The Works By Irate Woman Writer The childless New York columnist, Inez Robb, recently let loose a blast in her widely-read column against the harassed and desperate mothers of New Orleans who are protesting integration of the schools. Mrs. Robb indicated in no unmistakable terms that she regards these beleaguered ladies as little better than abandoned women of the streets. Designating them as "New Orleans Women," she employed prac~ tlcally every ugly adjective in the English language to express her con­tempt for their pitiable attempts to fight back at Federal tyrants who seek the debasement of their children. Mrs. Robb, not having any children of her own, cannot be expected to understand or have any sympathy for the impulse which impels a mother to protect her young from harm even at the cost of her own life, and perhaps we should be tolerant of her intemperate castigation of a human emotion which she has never experienced and, therefore, cannot comprehend. Since Mrs. Robb says she was "sickened" by the behavior of the "New Orleans Women" and that she blushed with shame because of their actions, we hasten to remind her of a recent racial incident of a re­verse nature which occurred in the great cultural, moral and religious center known as Hollywood. Since this Hollywood incident probably conforms more nearly to Mrs. Robb's ideal of proper and decent race re­lations, we feel sure it will repair much of the damage to her emotions caused by the performance of the "New Orleans Women." In the Hollywood case, accordiRg to press reports, a Negro man married one white female and publicly embraced and kissed another one. So when Mrs. Robb becomes "sickened" beyond endurance by the thought of the New Orleans affair, we suggest that she hug to her breast the memory of the Hollywood performance. If she will just keep the image of that little deal in mind. we feel sure that it will serve to wipe the blush from her fair cheeks which the conduct of the wicked "New Orleans Women" inspired. White House Conference on Aging Provides Window Dressing For Socialized Medicine As we go to press a "White House Conference on the Aging" is taking place in Washington, the inference being that the all -powerful government of the United States can even do something about people getting old. As a matter of fact, people have gotten old since the beginning of time and we strongly suspect that they will continue to do so from here on regardless of the bright and shining programs of empty-headed social planners who have placed the problems of old age high on their agenda for solution. Strangely enough, the majority of those who will attend the "Conw ference on the Aging" will not be old people at all. It will be .com­posed of large delegations of youthful social workers who are convmced that they know just what should be done in every human contingency and how to do it. In reality, the "White House Conference on the Aging'' is merely window dressing for the form of Socialized Medicine known as medical health care provided by the Federal government for persons over sixtyw five who are commonly supposed to become outcasts of human society when they have reached that age, to be deserted by their children and families and automatically converted into wards of the government. The Conference is intended to beat down opposition in Congress to various bills which will be introduced providing medical care for the nation's senior citizens whether they need it or want it or not. As the inimitable Dan Smoot, who never fails to hit the hull's eye, says in one of his late Reports concerning the affair: "In rea lity the White House Conference on Aging will be an exercise of group dynamics - a Communist-developed technique of mass thought-control. A large number of sincere delegates will be manipulated into 'making' decisions which were already made by the reigning politboro long before the dele­gates were ever selected .... But the people who set up the Conference know, and admit, that the whole thing has been planned not for the purpose of producing any new information, but for the sole purpose of persuading the people to support the 'Federal programs' which the Con­ference planners have already decided upon before the Conference was ever called." As one of the vast army of the nation's "aging" whose destiny the slap-happy young social planners are trying to manipulate and juggle, we respectfully suggest that they attend to their own cotton pickin' business and let everybody else, including the "aging," do the same thing and the world will be lots better off. Old people struggled along before these addle·pated planners were even born and there is no documented evidence that they can't continue to do so. President-elect K e n n e d y has drawn so heavily on the faculty of Harvard University in naming his official family that there Is talk of moving Harvard classes to the White House until its depleted staff can be replaced. Labor leaders are asking for temporary suspension of Federal income taxes as an anti-recession measure. Millions of Americans are asking for permanent repeal of the Income Tax Amendment as an anti-theft and anti-corruption measure. January, 1961 He's Got The Whole World In His Hands Mr. Averill Harriman of New York has just been invested with an office of such proportions as to put that of an Oriental Potentate in the shade. The President-elect has named him as "Roving Ambassador" and the whole world is his bailiwick. In the absence of any authentic information about the procedural methods of a man suddenly en~ trusted with supervision of an en~ tire globe, we assume that it will be necessary to keep a supersonic jet primed at the Ambassador's front door so he can be ready to "rove" at the drop of a space helmet. In view of his past experience in covering territory, we can visw ualize him hopping off one morn~ ing to settle a controversy between warring cannibal tribes in French Equatorial Africa and then being on hand to arbitrate a jurisdiction~ at dispute between headhunters in Northern New Zealand in the after~ noon. We still think Mr. Kennedy made a mistake in this appointment, however. The job was made to order for Eleanor Roosevelt. More Truth Than Poetry In This The following story which is at· t ributed to a member of Congress from the State of Florida, Repre~ sentative Robert Fikes, would be very funny if it were not so near the truth as to rob it of much of its comic value: A Southerner was having some difficulty reconciling himself to the present-day Supreme Court and its rulings and was discussing the subject with one of his elderly Negro helpers. "Mose," the Southerner com~ mented, "what do you honestly think of that blankety blank Su· preme Court in Washington?" «Boss," Mose replied, "Us col­ored folks thinks the Supreme Cote is a mighty fine thing. Why don't you white folks get you·all one?" Freshman Diplomat Becomes Authority On African Affairs Edward, othetwise known as "Ted," the baby of the Kennedy Clan, spent several weeks touring four French colonies in Africa, Ivory Coast, Dahomey, Upper Volta and Niger following which he made a report to the President-elect on the "Algerian Crisis." "I will give my brother an ac· count of the opinions of African leaders and my observations in order that there may be full com· preh~nsion of this problem," the buddmg young statesman an .. nounced to the press when leaving the Ivory Coast capital of Abidjan. We are beginning to think that the wag is not far wrong who re .. cently ventured the suggestion that John F. Kennedy, Jr., may get into the act before the end of his father's term.
