Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 7 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, NOVEMBER-DECEMBER, 1956 Nos. 11-12 Courage And Vision Could Re-Build Sound Structure On Wreckage of Democrat Party "Bi-Partisan Foreign Policy" Is Just Another Name for "Shared Bungling" Boiled down to facts, a "bi-par­tisan foreign policy" merely means that neither of our political parties could provide the brains, initia­tive and statesmanship to formu­late a pattern of behavior toward other nations which would operate in the primary interests of the United States. So they got together, pooled their ignorance and came up with the hybrid product under which we now manage to lose all diplo­matic skirmishes on every front. By thus uniting in a sort of "share-the-bungling" program, they probably figured that full blame would fall on neither when the thing blew up. As international bickering and dissension grow in bit· terness and the black clouds of war hang menacingly over vast sectors of the world, a deeper feeling of respect and reverence we II s up in the hearts of loyal and respon· sible Americans for the most prophetic phrase ever formu· lated by h u m a n minds: "Friendly relations with all nations; entangling alliances with none." The Time Has Come When We Must Face Up to the Facts The first requirement for mem­bership in the United Nations is that a country desiring to join must be a "peace-loving" nation. Also, the main objective of United Nations as proclaimed throughout the world is the pre· vention of aggression and the pres­ervation of peace. Russia is a powerful member of that same United Nations compos­ed only of "peace-loving" nations. And yet within recent weeks, the Soviets have committed aggression against Hungary, invaded that na­tion, killed thousands of helpless people and shipped thousands more off to slave camps. It is plain then, that Russia must be expelled at once from the UN or else the whole Charter must be amended as to requirements for membership and as to the objec· tive of the organization. As it now stands, and so long as Russia remains a member, the United Nations is actually commit­ted to aggression against small countries, the murdering of inno­cent men, women and children, and its objective is war and not peace. Man You Elected Will Bear Watching One of the unexplained mysteries of politics is why so many good men in private life seem to shed their political integrity like a dirty shirt on assuming office in either or both Houses of the national Con· gress. There must be some kind of fall-out from the general corruption which pervades the atmosphere in Washington that brings about a switch in their convictions and principles and induces them to revise their previous standards of right and wrong. As private citizens, and under the protective coloring of home, family and friends their behavior is impeccable and above reproach but a short time after they have taken their seat in the national assemb­ly, they frequently assume the moral stature of a chicken thief in the act of robbing a hen house. During the campaign they will look their constituents straight in the eye and take a solemn oath. They will swear by the beard of the Prophet, or the sideburns of Elvis Presley, that they will vote thus and so and after they get the job, they will do the exact opposite. They may be so prudent in spending their own money that they carry fishhooks in their pocket to prevent them from coming up with the cash while the other fellow pays the check. But when it comes to disbursing public funds, they perform like thieves, extortionists and confidence men, and will vote for tax and appropriation bills which may take their constituents' last dime to pay and they will do it without apology or even blinking an eye. To prevent their elected public servant from exercising this double­standard of conduct, taxpayers must watch him like a hawk, check his vote from the Congressional Record and when he starts double-crossing them, they should pounce on him like a duck on a June bug, either with a letter, a telegram or a long distance phone call. Strict and watchful supervision of this type is the only thing that will keep many public servants in line. The United States has recently gone through a Presi· dential election following a campaign In which no fundamental issue was discussed by either major con· didate, where no mention was made of the Constitu­tion, no basic law or tradition of the Republic defended, and where the voters were again faced with the ever· recurring American Dilemma in which they must seek to choose the lesser of two evils. While It is perhaps natural that the winner should profess to see in the results a 11YOte of confidence," an honest, soul~search .. ing appraisal on his part must compel the admission that this is not true and that the American electorate was merely in a bad spot without recourse to any other action than that which was taken. It was a case of Scylla on the one hand and Charybdis on the other with the dangerous wh:rlpool of National Socialism, Mongrelixation of the white race and One·World Gov· ernment swirling beneath them, regardless of which path they elected to follow. Starting now, American voters can avoid this noxious impasse in 1960. The best and the worst which can be said of the battle of the ballots on November 6 is that we are right back where we were and are no worse and no better off than before the election, with the exception of the psychological damage which could accrue if we dc.Iiberately, or unwittingly, mis-interpret the meaning of the victory of New Deal Republicans over New Deal Democrats. One cold stark fact that stands out in bold and vivid out1ine is that nothing was settled at the polls which is of value in the preservation of the American Republic. Both major parties remain, as before, the out· spoken champions of Marxian Socialism. Also, the enemies of the United States, both domestic and foreign, still stand poised and ready to sweep this country into a Communist-type, totalitarian One-World Govern­ment when, in the opinion of invisible rulers, the time seems right. The relative strength of Conservatives and Liberals also remains undetermined as there was no chance to evaluate such division on November 6, since both candidates for President were extreme leftists whose personal ideological beliefs were identical and whose respective party policies were indistinguishable. The issue, if any, was merely a question as to which candidate could best administer the extraneous social projects and international give-away programs of a government which now operates wholly outside the Constitution and basic law. It continues to be our conviction, however, that Conservative senti­ment predominates in this country and this belief is based on the fact that it was the overwhelming Conservative vote which elected Eisen­hower in 1952 under the mistaken impression that he belonged in that category. If this premise is correct and the authentic Conservative element of the nation will begin right now to organize under intelligent and responsible leadership with the objective of effecting the nomination of a candidate in 1960 who stands for Constitutional Government and whose loyalty and first allegiance is to his own country and its institu· tions, there is every reason to believe that the movement will be suc­cessful. We know for a fact that hundreds of thousands of Conserva­tives who voted this time for "Modern Republicanism" held their nose as they did so. In this connection, it seems appropriate to refer to some of the cleverest campaign propaganda ever to issue from the proponents of any political party in the nation's history. The gist of this propaganda which broke simultaneously on all fronts throughout the country, was that Conservatives had no alternative but to support Eisenhower on the t~esis that they would be rid of him in four years and that, in the mean­time, they could work for a Conservative victory in 1960. The election ?f s.tevenson, it was. pointed .o~t, wo':lld defer any hope along this line m vtew of the Amencan trad1hon whtch usually grants a President two terms in office. Like all carefully-planned and well-timed propaganda, this bundle of "packaged thinking" undoubtedly influenced wavering Conservatives throughout the nation and contributed heavily to the deluge for Eisen­hower, although final figures show that millions of qualified voters (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It-The Southern Conservative Say s I t THE S 0 U THE R N C 0 N S E R VAT IV E November-Decem bee, 1956 P•g•:_2 __________ _:_~__:__.::_:_:_:_:~::_~=-=~=------:------;;-:--:::-:--;::-:::-:;-;-=:-~==~ "Birds of A Feather Flock Together" at Red Shindig Once More Dulles' Diplomats Are Charity Fund lags Because of Opposition to Urban League In New York on November 7, The Communist delegation in the United Nations threw a party at their plush Park Avenue headquarters to com· memorate the 39th anniversary of the Bolshevik revolution. Caught With Striped Pants Down In Fort Worth the quota of the Vodka and champagne flowed like water according to press reports as these beasts made merry while their comrades were shooting down help­less men, women and children in far-away Hungary. The afiair was boycotted by all American officials except one. The one exception was William 0 . Doug­las, a Supreme Court justice who, with his wife, was present and took part in the merriment. A picture of him, chatting amiably with Soviet Ambassador Zarubin appeared in the Eastern papers next day. In the days when common decency was observed and the proprieties were upheld, this character would have been impeached for such dis­graceful behavior so quick it would bave made his head swim. Senator McCarthy told us years ago that the Central Intelligence Agency, with Allo,;n Dulles as its head, and which spends untold millions of dollars for which they refuse to ac­count, should be investigated by a committee of Congress. He charged in effect that this agency was composed of mail-order detectives playing a game of Cops and Robbers and that they didn't know !rom nothing. As usual, he was right but, as usual, nothing will be done about it and these human leeches will continue to suck their share of the taxpayers' blood. When England, France and Israel got together and decided to start a little war of their own in the Middle East, Allen Dulles' bright lads knew nothing of it and were so surprised that they almost dropped their cock­tails. There is no doubt that, ordinarily, Allen would have been tipped off by ~!~lo~~~e~~ ~~~n, st:te s~:~a;tfm:~~ ~ni~:~eF~~1!eis u:eps~;;:: :~is0;c:rre~~ whose business it is to keep informed the amount of almost $200,000.00. about what give around the world, but they didn't know it either. A new and interesting idea has been presented by Edwina Gar­field a wonderfully well-informed and patriotic American in West Palm Beach, Florida. She points out that mongrelization of the 1·aces or miscegenation with the Negro is a form of ~<Genocide" not only against the White race but against the colored as well, as it is designed to wipe out both. This is what one would call "Peace­ful Genocide," Mrs. Garfield as­serts, and Teminds us that it is be­ing accomplished by sending our men all over the wo1·ld to marry foreign women, including Asiatics, and by the cun-ent program to socially mix Whites a.,.,d Negroes in the schools, chw·ches and othe?' social institutions in this country. The shortage is credited to organ­ized opposition to the inclusion of the Urban League as one of the i"Kne­ficiaries of the United Fund. It is unfortunate if any person legitimately entitled to charity is de­prived of necessary help but, if so, it is the fault of officials of the Fund who stubbornly refuse to face facts and who feel that they can ''high pressure" citizens to act against their principles in the matter. Urban Leagues all over the United States are, of course, propaganda or­ganizations promoting racial mixture and Fort Worth is understood to be the only city in Texas which includes this outfit as a "charity" organiza- Courage and Vision (ConUnue<lF<omPageU stayed away from the polls altogether. In Texas alone, ap17roximately a half million eligible voters failed, or refused, to support e1ther of the candidates and stayed home or went fishing. There were 2,410,188 qualified voters in the State and of this number only 1,930,781 exer­cised this right. Apparently an appreciable number of these 1_1011-voting Americ~ns in the various States refused to panic at the sickenmg prospect of hav1!1g a few amateurs in the pro-Communist league trooping into the W~1te House to advise Adlai Stevenson in the face of the unhappy alternat1ve of having sinister and subtle experts dolng the same thing in case of an Eisenhower victory. Although there was no change for better or worse in the case of the election of a President, there were many by-products of the ballot­ing which should provide genuine cause for rejoicing by responsible Americans and which should inspire renewed hope for 1960. The overall blessing to the nation, of course, lies in the fact th_at the Socialist structure known as the Democrat Party has been dehvered a death blow which caused it to turn over on its back and expire, and, at the same time, the Marxist egg-head, Adlai St~v~nson, was forever shorn of his ambition to national leadership. If stm1lar treatment can be accorded "Modern Republicanism" in 1960, good Americans can once again lift up their heads and look toward the stars. No single casualty of the balloting caused more _wides~read satis­faction perhaps than the elimination from general c1rculatwn of that obnoxious, loud-mouthed, braying donkey from Tennessee, Es~es Kefauver, open and avowed enemy of his State, the Soutl1 an.d_the whtte race.

Another break in favor of the safety, security and perhaps the per­petuation of the Republic lies in the ~act tha_t the ~enate ~nd House will remain in opposition control. Whtle the tdeologtcal behefs of the two parties, as presently constituted, are identical, they still operate under two different labels and the innate jealousy and antagonism of each for the other will probably prove a necessary check on "Modern Republicanism'' in attempts to take us all t_he way i':lto One-:World Government, after first having set up a pohce State m Washmgton to handle Civil Rights. Repudiation of Stevenson in Texas for the second time means t?at this State must be considered doubtful in future which is the best thmg that could happen.

This also applies to Florida, Tennessee, Virginia and Louisiana where the revolt is equally pronounced. The most heartening aspect of the overturn in Texas was that it made bums out of Lyndon Johnson and Sam Rayburn and left them in the ridiculous attitude of resuming their positions as 01leaders" in the forthcoming Congress but having no "followers" in their own home State outside of a few straggling Liberals in the CIO and the defunct NAACP. Another cct.use for rejoicing by sound-thinkin~ Americans was in the death knell of the ADA, a motley and nondescnpt crew comprising the misfits and riff-raff of humanity who shout from one side of their mouth that they are against Communism and, from the other, loudly proclaim its doctrines. Not to be vverlooked for its import in connection with future action is the fact that a practicaHy unknown American, T. Coleman Andrews, with no organtzation, no leadership and with his name appearing in only a half dozen sma11 States or so, under different party listings, received around 150,000 votes while a write-in of the name of Senator Harry F. Byrd of Virginia, against his wishes, accounted for an equal number of votes. When it is remembered that these 300,000 Americans had no remote idea of winning but merely wished to register a vigorous protest against National Socialism, Integration and One-World Govern­ment, it must be admitted that this solid and unyielding bloc of patriots will figure in any future plan to restore Constitutional Government in the United States. The myth of a "solid labor .vote" in which all workers ballot as a unit on instructions from Union leaders has been blown to Kingdom Come and the il1usion of Reuther's great "power" has gone up in !>moke. During the campaign his "Committee on Political Education" mailed out T?~re than fifty million pieces of literature and paid for 10,000 televisiOn programs in a staggering amount not yet revealed , in an all-out attempt ~o elect Stevenson and a hefvily Democratic Congress. Stevenson won In only seven out of forty-eight States and the House and Senate remain Democratic practically by the same slim majority as before. And thus the once illustrious party of Jefferson has hit the skids to oblivion. It was first betrayed in the 1930's by charlatans, quacks, and demagogues and was finished off in 1956 by labor racketeers and other assorted political confidence men. But, even as it lies amid the ruins of its shattered prestige, it ano­malously provides the foundation for the re-building from the wreck­age, a sound and sturdy structure which could once again restore it to the strength, power and respectability bequeathed in by its founders. This Herculean task of rehabilitation could be accomplished within the next four years through the assumption of leadership by such strong political figures as Harry Flood Byrd, Herman Talmadge, Allan Shivers, Marvin Griffin, Richard B. Russell, James 0. Eastland, John L. McClel­lan, Strom Thurmond, Jimmy Byrnes, John Bell Williams, Martin Dies, James C. Davis and other Southern Democrats who have never been tarred with the New Deal brush. Since Conservative Republicans are being purged from that party, ~s recently publicized by that blabber-mouth phony, Paul Hoffman, and 1ts control by International Socialists is now cinched, it is reasonable to assume that the sound and substantial element from that group would be amenable to a revitalized movement for restoring Constitutional government in this country, regardless of title or name. What have they got to lose? A Third Party movement has never been successful in the United States to any appreciable extent but the names of the two major parties have been switched back and forth, the principles of each completely changed and reversed and this could be done again. To the faint-hearted who doubt the logic of this reasoning, we offer the reminder that Liberals, Leftists, Socialists, Communists and other Red fringe elements took the party away from the Conservatives in 1936. Are the Conserva- !~ve~ ra.~~~e::~~ i~fb=~~ i~s1s9~g~rage, determination and manhood that This would require stamina, vision and dedicated hard work from the grass ~o~ts on up as well as the whole-hearted cooperation of the many patnobc groups throughout the country who are already organized aro~nd sound principles of government, but the achievement of this glonous end would restore hope for the reclamation of a Republic which, under a quarter century of "Liberal" administration of its government, is fast slipping from its solid mooring. !he resu~rec~ion of the lifeless body of this dead political party and 1ts re-ded1cahon to the faith of its founders would reflect eternal renown ~~d _glory on its red.eemers and would forever put an end to the humihahng and demoralizing spectacle witnessed every four years when the American electorate is compelled to march to the polls and choose_ between two Internationalist, One-World Socialists In selecting a President of the United States. November-December, 1956 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 3 American Friends Service Committee Will Live Up to Its . Unbroken Record Now See What Can Happen to You If You Don't Conform Although the American Friends Service Committee was recently roundly denounced by the Texas Quakers of the Religious Society of Friends, the former group has just announced that Professor Milton Mayer will fill speaking engage­ments in Texas in April and May under the Committee's sponsor­ship. The Texas Quakers charged that _ the American Friends Service Committee "furthered Communist propaganda" and asserted that their Institutes of International Relations were "schools for Com­munist propaganda and liberal re­ligions". Although the Texas Quakers merely made the charges and let the chips fall where they would, they could, if they had desired, have backed up their charges with some very interesting facts. They could, for instance, have produced the record showing that the Amer­ican Friends Service Committee has sponsored such enemies of Am­ericanism as Alger Hiss, Norman Thomas and Bayard Rustin. They could have produced the record showing that the Friends have presented as speakers at their Seminars such Communist-Front­ers as Kirby Page, Georgia Hark­ness, Stringfellow Barr, Mordecai Johnson, John Zwomley, Olcott Sanders, Bernard C. Clausen, R. O'Hara Lanier, Otto Klineberg and A. J. Muste. The Texas Quakers could have even gone further and pointed out that the American Friends Service Committee has never been known to sponsor an established anti­Communist or a repentent ex-Com­munist trying to undo the wrong he has done to his country. As to Professor Milton Mayer whom the friends propose to send on a lecture tour of Texas, he has perhaps the most unsavory record of any of their proteges. He is re­membered best for his infamous statement made at an Institute of International Relations at Syra­cuse. New York, on February 16th, 1947, at which time the Syracuse Post-Standard quoted him as say­ing that in order for World Gov­ernment to prevail "we must haul down the American Flag and if I wanted to be vulgar and shocking, I would go further and say, haul it down, stomp on it and spit on it." When a storm of protest broke over his head, Mayer claimed that his statement was misunderstood but he has never asked the Post­Standard to retract it and they have offered no apology. Mayer is a reported affiliate of the Fellowship of Reconciliation which is the fountain .. head of a movement to destroy the spirit of patriqtism of the American people. He has also been shown as con~ nected with the Great Books Foun­danon. Announcement of the time and place of Mayer's lectures has not been made but it will be interest­ing to see if the YMCA, YWCA or tax-exempt churches who invar­iably provide facilities for the Friends-sponsored speakers w iII come forward with an offer in the case of this particular one. Segregationist Are Swept Into Houston School Board Staunch Conservatives who are outspoken advocates of equal but separate schools for White and Negro children received an over­whelming vote of confidence in the landslide majority which gave them four vacant positions on the Houston School Board in the No­vember 6 election. Conservative control of the Board is assured for the next four years with a ratio of five Conservatives and two In­tegrationists. Turned out of office were all members of the Board who voted to renew the contract of the con~ troversial educator, George Ebey, as deputy superintendent of Hous­ton Schools in 1952 while those who voted against renewal were retained on the Board. The victor­ious Board members were among those who, when nosey represent­atives of the National Education Association barged into Houston following Ebey's dismissal to "in­vestigate", chased them out of town and sent them packing. There were, of course, m a n y issues involved in Houston's hot­test School Board election in his­tory, but that of Segregation was predominant over all others. The new Board members are fortified by their knowledge that the Su­preme Court has never ordered schools to integrate in Texas and are fully aware that Segregation is part of the Texas Constitution and that it is implemented by proper statutory legislation. Also, they are bolstered by a recent Texas election in which voters ap­proved segregation by an over~ whelming majority. Popular Idea About Voting Machines Is Pure Baloney There is a popular misconcep­tion to the effect that voting rna~ chines insure secrecy of the ballot and honesty in elections. This is pure and simple bunk. What a crooked manipulator can do to rig up those gadgets is really something, and it has been done time after time. A "Liberal" will monkey with the spring that con­trols the vote for a Conservative and such Conservative will wind up at the tail end when the ballots are counted. Any way, we don't see why vot­ers place so much stress on "sec­r- ecy." Perhaps this is because we always shout our views from the house tops and don't care who knows where we stand. "Purity" of the ballot wiJI only come any way when Americans quit being fools, start using their own heads and begin voting only for pro-Americans for office. Columbus was a candle maker, Watts a dishwasheT, Whitney a school teacher, Patrick Henry a bartender, Lincoln a rail splitter and Burbank a farm hand. AIL earned their living by the sweat of their brow before they attained greatness. Had they been subsi­dized by government, living on a pension or had their wages guar­anteed, they might have become parasites on society instead of benefactors to mankind. Government is rendering a dis­service to the human race when it gives an able- bodied ?nan a crutch. Americans Contribute to Organizations Trying to Put Us Behind Iron Curtain Any American who has money and wants to contribute to the In­stitute of International Education Inc. is told through the Institute's publications that his donation will be deductible on income tax re­turns. And that is true. The Institute is tax-exempt. It is also true that this same Institute of International Educa­tion is listed in the official docu­ments put out by that same go­vernment that grants it tax ex­emption, as one of the American Branches of the Communist Inter­national. This is only one case in which American taxpayers', with the co­operation of the Treasury Depart­ment, are paying money, earned or acquired under the American free enterprise system, to help put this nation behind the Iron Cur­tain. There are many others. We defy any human to offer any explanation or any logical reason why such treasonable actions as this should not be brought to an end. The purse has always been a supreme temptation to politicians which few have been able to re­sist. For this reason the Income Tax amendment .should be re­pealed. The Union Theological Semin­ary in New York has inaugurated a three-year experimental pro­gram for training future clergy­men. They are going to be in­structed in acting, directing and playwriting. E. Martin Browne, British theatrical producer and director of the British Drama League has been installed as vis­iting professor in charge of the course for the first semester. This information is contained in an of­ficial press release by the Na­tional Council of Churches dated November 1, 1956. Thanksgiving in Texas was a very much mixed-up affair and the outcome was that two differ­ent Thanksgiving Days were ob­served. Governor Shivers very properly proclaimed November 29 as Thanksgiving, in keeping with tradition which has always set aside the last Thursday in No­vember as the occasion on which to give thanks. The President, however, set the date at Novem­ber 22, just as Roosevelt did some years ago. In future we hope that there wi.ll be no more changing of this great national holiday. As is becoming generally recog­nized, the egg-heads, liberals and one-worlders generally, headed by political psychiatrists, are going com­Pletely "hog-wild" over the subject of mental health and are spreading their propaganda with relentless persist­ence throughout the world. The-ir definition of persons who are either crazy or mentally deficient are those who do not submit to thought-coptrol and who do their own thinking on such U1ings as a One· World Government in which all citi­zens of the world are to be re-shaped into one common mold. It was our own thought that all the absurd proposals which lntellec. tual screwballs could think up had been exhausted and that we had heard everything they had to suggest including the intimation by a "mental engineer" that the time may come when babies' heads will be .equipped with built-in electronic controls to insure uniform thinking as referred to ln our October edition, but now they have come up with another gim­mick. A pamphlet from the "Human Bet­terment League, Inc." has come to us and they have a proposal to end all proposals. Instead of having to mess around with objectionable human be­ings and attach electronic plugs to their craniums after they get here, they propose to stop 'em from scratch and head 'em oU before they get born. In other words, they arc working fanatically for a "Selective Steril­ization program" and boast that they now have legislation to bring this about in 27 States of the Union, and indicate that they mean to whip all forty-eight in line before they give up. As one who is a complete igno­ramus concerning such procedure, we suggest that this program is a genera­tion or two too late and that the greatest benefit which could ensue !rom such performances would have been in having those who produced these queer and sinister specimens of humanity submit to such an opera~ tion themselves. Seriously, we believe that if these mental scientists and political psy­chiatrists keep venturing farther in their fantastic proposals and weird experiments in the matter of control­ling and directing human minds, some sort of. legal restraint will inevitably have to be imposed against them. In the meantime, we must keep our respect for ethical psychiattists and mental health specialists who arc sincerely concerned in normal treat­ment of the mentally ill for they operate in a field ol medical science which is of the highest importance but the political psychiatric quacks who are out to re-shape the political and social views of human beings in the interest of One-World govern­ment, are far more dangerous even than those unfortunates who aro known to be criminally insane. All those who are alarmed over the precarious State of the Union and the world (and who isn't?) must surely realize that the pic­ture could be cleared up almost instantly if we simply withdrew recognition of Russia and her sat­ellites and refused to give one dollar more of jo1·eign aid to thPm.. The remedy is so simple and sen· sible that it won't even be consid­ered. Page 4 The Southern Conservative A MONTHLY PUBLICATION OF EDITORIAL OPINION WITH NATIONAL CIRCULATION IDA M.

Conservative Democrats Will Set Up Organization in Texas Under the leadership of Hugh Prather, Dallas business man, Conservative Democrats of Texas are planning an extensive cam­paign to perfect organization of this group into a strong and effec­tive force. Mr. Prather made it clear that the new organization would be "independent" and would have no interest in the State Republican organization. Texas has proved in elections of recent years that the majority sentiment of the State is Conserv­ative, although voters have notal­ways been especially fond of the candidates they have supported, but rather have cast their ballots against candidates they definitely disliked. A statewide meeting of Conserv­atives will be called for an early date, it is reported, and plans pos­sibly begun with the 1960 elections in view. Americans Sympathize With Dulles in Tragic Illness Regardless of their attitude to­ward Secretary of State John Dulles officially, all Americans will deeply sympathize with him personally because of the serious illness which has attacked him. If the strenuous travelling pro­gram in which he seemed to com­pete with Eleanor Roosevelt in cov­ering the greatest mileage in the shortest time, has contributed in any manner to his physical break­down, it is doubly regrettable, be­cause we would be far better off if most of the things h~ has done had been left undone. It seems such a tragic and un­necessary sacrifice to make to no good end. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE November.Oecember, 1956 We Want to "Contain" Communism but Give When, Oh When, Will the Tax-Free Billions to Promote Its Spread A~:~c~:a~~~~!:ti~~~~ ~!~ In spite of the fact that five dif­ferent agents of the Bureau of Internal Revenue have reportedly recommended that the tax-exempt privileges of the Ford Fund for the Republic be revoked, the matter seems to have died down and noth­ing has apparently been done about it. Meantime, these Foundatfons who are not only in politics up to their neck but in subversive move­ments intended to overthrow the government of the United States and bring it under the domination of a Communist One-World gov­ernment, continue to be allowed to operate without paying taxes, while loyal Americans must pay until it hurts. For instance, t h e Carnegie Peace Corporation sometime ago made a grant of $1,500,000 to the Institute of International Educa­tion, Inc. Later the Rockefeller Foundation made a grant to this same outfit of $250,000 and still later the Ford Foundation con­tributed the staggering amount of $3,500,000 which will be paid to them over the next ten years. It is unnecessary to go into the record of this Institute of Interna­tional Education, Inc., to learn what it is because we know what kind of outfits the big Foundations concentrate on in making their grants and donations. But for the benefit of those who never heard of it, interesting infor­mation will be given them in Un­ion Calendar No. 838, House Re­port No. 2244 of the Second Ses­sion of the 84th Congress. Beginning on page 4 of this re­port, the Committee on Un-Amer­ican Activities of which the Hon­orable Francis E. Walter of Pen­nsylvania is chairman, gives a list of the "American Branches of the Communist International" and Constitution Takes Another Shellacking We didn't need to prove the point, but the Supreme Court took one more step recently to indicate how definitely the Constitution has been abandoned in this coun­try and to show that ours is no longer a country of laws but of men. Governor J. Bracken Lee of Utah sought to file an original petition with the high Court con­cerning the Foreign Aid program. Lee, in his petition, contended cor­rectly that Congress has no power to collect and expend taxes for the support of foreign nations, and he pled that the Secretary of the Treasury be enjoined from using Taxpayers' money for such pur­poses. Of course the Court turned down Governor Lee's petition since the nine old men on the Court have long since abandoned the Constitution as the instrument of basic law in this country. Not only did the Court, inferentially, deny this principle but they re­fused to let Lee even file his peti­tion. Also, Lee was handicapped, of course, by the fact that he is a sound Conservative American and not a Communist sympathizer or member of a minority group. right in the big middle of it ap- our own United States officials pears the name of the Institute of have no confidence whatever in International Education, Inc. the United Nations to settle inter8 This Communist organization, national disputes, the Navy an- ~~n;~:~~ ~~l~~~n~if;~~d ~n;~~~ ~~~~~;d la~~~enatllcr:fttca;r~er~a~~ company as TASS, Third Interna~ ~~~~~*n~~~~ ~~sd~~:~eo:,~::~l~n~!~ i!~~=~: ~~~~;a~~~a7W~~~!~!eQ~d= ~~~~~of the situation in the Middle er, Soviet Travel Agency, Interna-tional Cooperative Alliance, So­ciety for Cultural Relations with Russia, International Friends of Soviet Russia, Communist Party, ti.S.A., and thirty-eight other groups and organizations commit­ted to the Communist conspiracy against the United States. This Institute of International Education holds a Summer School in Moscow and part of its activi­ties in behalf of International Communism is to exchange stu­dents between various countries. It will, for instance, take students from Communist countries into non-Communist countries to infil­trate young people there and will, in turn, send students from non­Communist countries into Commu­nist countries where they are in­doctrinated with Communist ideals. If we regard the United States as a non-Communist country, why are these big Foundations permit­ted to enjoy tax exemption on huge fortunes which are being used to spread Communism over the world while our politicians in Washington run around in circles trying to "contain" Communism and prevent its further spread? Is there any more effective way to "contain" Communism than to cut off the billions of dollars which our own citizens are donat­ing to the cause of promoting it? What in the name of all that's Holy is the matter with us any way? Turn About Is Fair Play According to the October 19th edition of Science Magazine, a medical research technician from the Carnegie Institute and another from the University of Chicago School of Medicine are currently engaged in some serious monkey business. They are monkeying with mon~ keys it seems and exploring their reproductive areas seeking infor­mation to be used in advancing the program of birth control. We suppose that these great scientists feel they must engage in this kind of research but we can't help thinking that it would be a sort of "poetic justice" if someday one of these big apes suddenly came out of the anesthesia, grab­bed a knife and started whittling on the anatomy of his tormentor. Our double - standard in the United States must be abolished and the idea rejected that some­thing which is a crime in public life is a virtue in government. Such as extortion of money from the taxpayers. for example. "The way to have a good and safe government is not to trust it ~a:y~; ~t Ai~x~~d~~e ~!m~Uoo:.g Meantime, Soviet Russia, one of the United Nations' most powerful "peace-loving" members is poised near Egypt like a rattlesnake ready to sink its fangs into any power, or collection of powers, re­fusing to obey their orders or do their bidding. The United Nations' "Interna­tional Police Force" is supposed to be handling the situation but it is clear that the Communists are go­ing to boss the job, no matter how many letters we write or h o w many protests we make. Fresh from their bloody con .. quest in Hungary where they ruth­lessly murdered thousands of men, women and children and carried other thousands of captive patriots to Siberian slave camps, the Rus­sians are feeling their oats to such an extent that they are now show­ing up in their true colors and proving what many of us already knew-that Russia is the United Nations and the other members mere puppets who, when the chips are down, are powerless to oppose her. ompany The Caxton Printers, Ltd., Cald­well, Idaho, have a complete cata­logue of books for children of all ages which are listed by subjecis of special interest to youngsters. A card or letter to Caxton will bring a catalogue and parents will have no fear of propaganda such as has been slipped into so many childrens' books in recent years by those who believe in infiltrating the minds of little tots from the cradle on up in order to make them "world citizens". Those Americans who are amazed at Ote way the Soviets continue to insult the Western Countries and at the failure of American officials to even consid­er breaking relations with those butchers, must remember that our policy for over twenty years has been pro-Russian and pro-Commu­nist and that it would require an almost complete reversal of past policies for us to begin resenting insults from that source now. It was the American State Depart­ment, remember, who '4let China fall to the Com,m.unists without letting it be known that she was pushed?" It was the American gove1·nment too, remember, which refused to aid the Yugoslav patri­ot, Mikhailovitch when he was fighting for his life and his coun­try, but which, as soon as Mik­hailovitch had been assassinated and Communist Tito had taken over, began to flood that country with Am.erican taxpayers' dollars? Russia has been responsible for the spread of Communis1T' throughout the world, but she ts not alone in guilt. November-December, 1956 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 5 The Cause of Juvenile Delinquency Gets Boost From Surprising Source Funeral of the Constitution During the month of Septem­ber, the Detroit Police Depart­ment raided news stands in that city and confiscated all copies of "Facts of Life and Love for Teen­agers," a pornographic pocket size book which had been banned by the Detroit Censorship Bureau. This action was taken under the Michigan law prohibiting the sale of books containing obscene lan­guage or descriptions that tend to corrupt youth. The specific thing for which the book was banned was a plain and unexpurgated description of a cer­tain human relation which was treated in a manner usually con~ fined to publications bootlegged by purveyors of obscenity in out­of- the-way stalls and back alleys. No sooner had these books been removed from the news stands, however, than a lawsuit was threatened against the Censor­ship Bureau and the final out~ come of the matter was that the books were restored to the news stands where they again went on sale to teenagers. The group making the threat to bring a lawsuit against the Cen~ sorship Bureau was not composed of the perverted publishers of such books nor the depraved retailers of obscene publications who offer them for sale. The threat to bring suit unless the books were restored to new;; stands was - the Detroit Council of Churches, an affiliate of the National Council of Churches. The success of the Detroit Coun­cil of Churches in preventing the suppression of this obscene litera­ture is told in "The Religious Newsweekly,'' official publication of the Office of Public Relations, National Council of Churches, 297 Fourth Avenue, New York, in a bulletin released for publication November 1, 195~, on page 1. Period! NAACP Is Run Out of The State of Texas The people of Texas owe a debt of eternal gratitude to retiring At~ torney General John Ben Shep~ perd for his masterly stroke in routing the infamous trou b le - mak~ ing organization called NAACP out of the State of Texas. . Following a long and thorough mvestigation by his staff, Mr. S~epperd brought suit to restrain th1s group, which is composed of about an equal number of North­ern Mulattoes and Northern white trash, from doing any further busi· ness in Texas. Countless cases of solicitation of clients by NAACP at~orneys was brought out at the tr1al and various other violations of Texas law was proved by the evidence. Judge Otis T. Dunagan of the 7th Judicial District of Texas granted the plea of the Attorney General and the NAACP was per~ manently enjoined from carrying on its activities in this State. Permanently, that is, so far as the law is concerned in Texas. When, and if, the case ever gets to the Supreme Court in Washing­ton where the facts, the law or the Constitution mean nothing and where the Court acts only in ac­cordance with the demands of mi­nority groups, it is anybody's guess as to what will happen. Youth Sacrifices Education In Favor of Presley Sideburns Out of the welter of tragic and disheartening news from all over the ~orld, there is occasionally an amusmg angle that brings a smile. In Mount Clements, Michigan, a sixteen year-old boy, Bobby Pher~ netton, showed up at school at the beginning of the semester wearing Elvis Presley sideburns. His clown-like appearance nat­urally caused a sensation in the class room and order and disci~ pline went out the window. When he refused repeatedly to have the foliage clipped, the local School Board expelled him in spite of the insistent pleas by his mother that Bobby be allowed to return to school, sideburns and all. His mother took the case to court. Bobby's attorney, James C. Da­ner, who is apparently more of a Voltaire follower than a Presley fan, thundered out during the trial: "Even though Bobby may look like an idiot to me, I will defend to the death his right to look that way". He insisted that it was not the haircut but the principle he was defending. He added as a clinching argument for the reten­tion of the sideburns that during the preceding year, when Bobby had short hair, he failed in one of his subjects at school. Whereupon the attorney for the School_Board, William Nunnelley, arose m rebuttal and produced school records which showed that so far this year, and with his hir­sute adornment, Bobby had failed in all of his subjects. "He even failed in physical edu­cation and I understand it's almost impossible to flunk that" Nunnel~ ley added. The judge upheld the School Board and ruled that although anybody has a right to make him­self look ridiculous, the School Board has the responsibility to see that dignity and discipline is main­tained in class rooms. In the meantime, Bobby's mo­ther is reported to be nursing a grudge against the School Board as she coddles a potential rock 'n roll performer of the fu~ure.

Friends, Americans, countrymen, lend me your ears; I come to bury the Constitution, not to praise it. The evil that men and documents do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones. So be it with the Constitution. The cunning "One-World Conspira­tors," the "internationalist schemers," the "war promoters" have told you that the Constitution is an old·fash­ioned document and too ~mbitious. If it were so, it was a grievous fault ~ And grievously hath the Constitution paid for it. Here, under leave of the controlled "international press," the "Invisible government," and the rest - come [ to speak at the Constitution's funer­al. It was our oHest friend, faithful and just to us. It hath brought many rights and safegcards to our people. Under its protection our general cof­fers were filled. Did this in the Con­stitution seem ambitious? When the poor have cried or been in need, the Constitution hath fed and protected them and their children. Ambition should be made of sterner stuff. Yet the "selected'' Supreme Court has said, the Constitution Js ambitious - and are they honorable men? You all did know that our wise and patriotic ancestors had op\')ortunities to give someone a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition? I speak not to disprove what the un-American United Nations plotters have spoken. But I am here to speak what I do know. You all did love this Constitution once, not without cause; what cause withholds you then to mourn for it? 0, judgment, thou art fled to brut­ish beasts. And men have lost their reason. Bear with me, my heart Is in the coffin there with the Constitu­tion, and I must pause till it come back to me. But yesteryear, the Constitution's word might have stood against the Eight Southern States Achieve A Place on the Roll of Honor The November 12th edition of Newsweek printed a map show­ing the "progress" made in fifteen Southern or border States in in­tegration. Eight of these States were col­ored black which, according to the footnote accompanying the map, represented those States which have "not only taken no steps to implement the Court's decision, but are grimly determined to dis­regard it." The States which have begun integration in the area were col~ ored Red, which will be imme­diately recognized by informed persons as a very fitting manner in which to describe them. We regret to say that our own State appears among the 11Reds." The Eight honor States are Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. There are no known Commu· nists in Spain and if one develops, he is dealt with properly. Conse­quently, there is no constant bar~ rage of Communist propaganda directed toward their schools, churches and other institutions such as the United States has suf~ fered for decades. Also in that country, juvenile delinquency is practically unknown. Perhaps the political psychiatrists and psychol­ogists, who modestly admit that they have the answer to all forms of human misbehaviour, can ex~ plain that. Latest gimmick of the Integra~ tionists, according to information reaching- US1 is in the form of a Christmas card now on the market in which a little black pickaninny is shown right in the big middle of a lot of little white angels. world, now lies it there. And none so poor to do 1.. reverence. 0, citizen~ of these United States! If I were dis­posed to stir your hearts and minds to rage, I should do the "internation­alist" tax-exempt organizations and the "One-World" Foundations wrong, who, you all know, say they are honorable men. I rather choose to wrong the murdered Constitution. Than wrong such "honorable" men? But here's the world's greatest docu­ment - the Constitution - with the seal and love of our wise and cour­ageous God-fearing Founding Fathers. Let but the people hear this testa~ ment and you would go and kiss the Constitution's wounds. Yes, beg a part of it for memory, mentioning ft to your children and passing it on as a rich legacy unto their issue. It is not meet that you know how much the Constitution loved and pro­tected you. For it will inflame you and make you mad. 'Tis good you know not that you are the heirs and owners of this great country - that the so-called "powerful men" and their stooges are but your servants. Make a ring about the coffin hold­ing the Constitution and I shall read its message to you. And if you have tears, prepare to shed them now. You all do know this heritage, where all the rights and power were reserved to you. And with loving hands the Founders of this country covered it with our flag of red, white and blue. Look in this place ran the United Nations dagger through; see what a rent Supreme Court decisions have made. Through these openings the well·publicized "advisors" stab­bed, and as they plucked their cursed steel away, mark how the blood ol the Constitution and the hopes ol freedom flowed. These stabs of treasonable people, admitted to our country as "citizens," were the most unkindest cuts of all. For ingratitude, more strong than American's arms, quite vanquished the Constitution. They burst its mighty heart, and Bloody Treason now flourishes over us. Stay, countrymen! Good friends, patriotic friends, let me stir you up to such a sudden flood of mutiny. They that have done this deed say they are "honorable"; what private international plots they have, alas! I know not. They are cunning and clev­er, and will, no doubt, try to answer you. I am no orator, as our enemies are; but as all you know me, a plain, blunt man, that loves my country, I humbly ask to speak my thoughts. For I have neither wit, nor words, nor worth, nor action, nor utterance, to stir men's blood; I only speak right out to tell you that which you yourselves do know. I show you the Constitution's wounds, poor dumb mouths, and bid them speak for me. But were I other­wise, I would ruffle up your spirits, and point to every wound In the Con­stitution. And then, at last, this should move the people ol America to rise and mutiny against the conspirators who are plar,ning to take over our Country, and thus avenge the Con~ stitutioo's death. Our forefathers, in framing the Constitution, sought to curb the depravities of human nature by limiting the power of those who governed. It was their purpose to restrain the vices of those in of­fice and give freedom to their virtues. Page 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Once Again "Isolationism" Common Sense Action Would Save B~:m:o~e~::~~~~n~!ey~~~~- Taxpayers 5100,000,000 Per Year visible rulers of the world have kep t in circulation in this country a steady and relentless stream of propaganda a g a ins t something they called "isolationism". The stock argument was that the world is now so small and transportation and communication so efiicient that no nation could afford to live to itself alone. Hordes of bird­brained, phony, intellectuals took up the strain and wore it to a frazzle with the result tl"-..at Amer­icans began to believe lt and were finally completely sold. With the total blow-up of our bi-partisan policy, the American people are learning the hard way that our wise, practical and level­headed forefathers knew what they were talking about when they handed down the warning that only disaster and tragedy could result if we became em­broiled if) the squabbling and brawling of foreign nations who had been fighting each other since the beginning of time and would continue until the end of eternity. At this period in history, dis­aster and tragedy are stalking on all fronts and in all sectors of the world and there is no real peace and security anywhere on earth except in a few small nations whose leaders had the foresight and the wisdom to mind their own business and keep out of other people's wars. Completely reversing the poli­cies of such great statesmen as Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe and those who closely followed them, our national leaders have tried to make liars out of these early-day patriots by committing us to the financial and military defen se of so many for­eign countries that we no longer keep count. As a result the nations who are now at each others throat in the Middle East are fighting with weapons and money that we provided to combatants on both sides. There is no authentic record, and nobody knows, how many trillion dollars we have sloughed off to bolster weak, wobbly and corrupt foreign governments since the day that Roosevelt, the master thief of the ages, first started his wholesale robbery of American taxpayers. It is safe to assume, however, that the expenditure of only a fraction of it in our own defense would have made this Re~ public invulnerable to attack and allowed us to maintain our dignity and prestige, as well as the respect of the world. Perhaps that would have been " isolationism" but at least we would not now be in the humiliat­ing position of having to cower, cringe and tremble when one of our former uallies" and benefic­iaries of our billions sees fit to bully and insult us and spit in our eye. "Familiarity breeds contempt" is an old saw that probably would not pass muster with modern phrase-makers and word-stingers but it is one of the human verities which will out-live time, and one which applies to individuals and nations alike. Instead of maintaining "friendly relations with all nations, entangl­ing alliances with none" , we have practically gotten down on our knees in a vain effort toward "Brotherhood", have corrupted our own principles of government to make them conform to foreign ideals and have kowtowed, placat­ed and appeased and, in return, we have gained their contempt. The resignation recently of Theodore Streibert as head of the United States Information Agency which broadcasts the Voice of America program, afforded an ideal opportunity to disband this worth­less and detrimental activity which, at best, has been a joke and, at worst, a menace. Set up under Reorganization Plan No. 8 of 1953, the United States information Agency was launched August 1, of that year to "combat Communism through different media of communications." Previously the agency had operated as the International Information Administra­tion. Instead of "combatting Communism" the program from the be­ginning has used Communist material in preparing its scripts and was so pro-Communist in its leanings that a Subcommittee of the Committee on Government Operations of the Senate was called on to investigate its activities in 1954. The investigation developed that the Voice of America was not only not fighting Communism but was distributing books by Com­munists and Communist fronters and that its staff had been instructed specifically "not to do or say anything that would outrage the senti­ments of Soviet nationalism". (This was at a time when pro-Communist groups were carrying on a vigorous campaign in this country to break down the strong spirit of nationalism in the United States.) At the hearing, Senator Everett Dirksen of Illinois brought out that during the Lincoln Day program put on by the voice· of America the only reference to Lincoln was when the broadcaster read a letter to Lincoln from Karl Marx in which this broadcaster left the inference that Lincoln approved of Marxian theory. The investigation brought out that while Congress was appropri­ating more than a hundred million dollars annually to carry on the U.S.I.A. activities including this Voice of America program for the purpose of fighting Communism, the works of such Communists as Howard Fast were being used in the broadcasts. Earlier Fast had appear­ed before this same committee and repeatedly refused to tell whether he was a Communist on the grounds that such answer would "incriminate'1 him. On July 7, 1955, Streibert released a statement to the press giving the names of the country's "leading writers" who were writing the scripts broadcast by the Voice of America. Included in this list were those of such Communist fronters as Dorothy Canfield Fisher, William Saroyan, James T. Farrell. Erskine Caldwell, Pearl Buck, William Carlos Williams, Vardis Fisher, Upton Sinclair and others. Instead of seizing on this opportunity to discontinue an agency which has caused so much embarrassment to this country, which is a heavy drain on the taxpayers and which has done only harm through its corrupt operation, the President is reported in the press as having chosen Arthur Larson to take Streibert's place and continue the farce. When Larson's name is before the Senate for confirmation at the next session, it would seem that there would be some responsible mem­ber of that body who would point out the idiocy of the Voice of America program which has always done more harm than good and would pro­pose complete elimination of the project and offer a bill to that effect. Instead, the chances are that this atrocity which costs taxpayers one hundred million dollars annually will be left undisturbed and that Larson will be confirmed. It is unnecessary to add that Larson is of the same ideological stripe as Streibert and, if possible, more so Hail and Farewell To A Grand American! Since its beginning in 1950, the final page-proof of every edi­tion of the Southern Conservative was read by Ruth Parrish Davis who had the last look at it and checked for typographical errors, dates, places, names, initials and for mistakes generally which will creep into any type of printed material. She did this as a gracious gesture and because she loved the paper and was thoroughly in accord with its policies. Her profes­sicm was that of executive secretary and although her own job demanded all of her time, she could always spare enough of it to render this service for us. Three days before we went to press with this edition, Mrs. Davis died and this issue will be the first ever put out without her careful scrutiny to see that is was as free from minor mistakes as it was humanly possible to make it. The many compliments we have had about a "clean" paper was due largely to her careful read­ing of the final copy. There will be others who will take care of the matter for us but the memory of her kindness, generosity and fine sense of humor will linger with us forever. Although she only saw the paper when it was ready to run, she seemed, somehow, a very vital part of it and we shall miss her so very much. Of her it can be said that she was an American in the finest and best tradition with an undivided loyalty to her own country and to no other. November-December, 1956 Governor-Nominate Daniel Trying to Hold Two Jobs The matter of a United States senator from Texas to succeed Price Daniel, who was elected Governor of the State on Novem­ber 61 still remains very much up in the air. We do not think that Mr. Dan­iel's very peculiar actions in the matter represent his own will or his wishes. It is pretty generally believed that he has gotten him­self so indebted to Lyndon John­son and Sam Rayburn that he must necessarily perform accord­ing to instructions. It is clear that Mr. :Qaniel is trying to hold onto the job of senator until he is con­vinced when and how his succes­sor is to be chosen, when, as a matter of fact, it is no more con· cern of Mr. Daniel than of any other Texas citizen, how that mat­ter is handled, so long as it comes within the law. Neither do we believe that Gov­ernor Shivers is trying to effect the election of a Republican to the job. We believe, and hope, that he has rendered enough service to that party to last the rest of his life and being at heart a Conserv­ative Democrat, we believe he will return to the faith when, and if, that party is wrenched loose from its corrupt leadership. At any rate, the people of Texas are entitled to representation in the United States Senate, even though they haven 't had any to brag about for a long time. Mr. Daniel will have his hands full with the job of being Gover­nor and he would be well advised to be giving consideration to his responsibilities in that office in­stead of trying to perform United States senator, also. Biggest laugh of all time: Asked at a press conference if he will make any effort to influence the election of a Republican aS Sena~ tor from Texas to replace Price Daniel, Mr. Eisenhower s~id that he would like very much to have a Repubtican senator from Texas but that he uwould never dream of interfering with the State's in­ternal affairs." Perhaps it was old Truman who appointed Earl War­ren, proposed a Police State to handle Civil Rights and asked Congress to appropriate millions to place public schools under Fed~ eral control! Senator Joseph R. McCarthy declaTed in Washington that it is a disgrace for the United States to remain in the uhypocritical, dangerous United Nations." He said this country should withdraw from this agency and kick it out of the United States. He suggested Moscow as the proper location of its headquarters. He is exactly right of course but so strongly has the international web of conspir­acy been woven around us, that it would be just about as easy to move the Capitol building out of the United States a$ to get this hot-bed of intrigue banished from our shores. 1956 ates :eed oted up )an­the . or illy im­hn­he 1rd-hat nto my 1at-ov­ect the he to his rv­he en, led ip. tds ed ?is in-ed m he ce at ns d- 'Y is es ~~ .w ut !d of ly s r­it to of is November·December, 1956 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE How Ameri,ans Can Render Amarillo Commands Respect of Patriots A Servi'e to Their Country We get many inquides f•om .ead- In Outstanding Tribute to Americanism ers who smcerely want to contribute toward the distribution of literature embodying sound American princi. ~les, to inspire discussion among their friends and neighbors and otherwise assist in awakening the people to the dangers threatening their country, but don't seem to know quite what to do. In this connection, we would like to advise that they emulate a very wonder!ul woman in another State, whose name we are not at liberty to publicly divulge, but who has set a precedent in patriotic service which all other interested Americans would "do well to follow. For several years now, she has held group meetings in her home every Tuesday night for nine months of the year, the sessions being discontinued only during three summer months. There is no name to the affair but the interest in the weekly meetings has grown in intensity \tntn what was in the beginning a mere handful, has attracted additional numbers of interested citizens, both and women, until her spacious first floor is taxed to accomodate them all. Issues which are of primary con-to the Republic at this time are taken up one by one and all avail­able information on the subject is presented and free and open discus­sion of various angles engaged in by all those in attendance. So interested have the participants in these group meetings become in this weekly af­fair that absences from the event are few and far between. The pleasing result from this vol­untary fireside forum is that those connected with it are regarded among the most highly informed persons in that State on issues of current concern. We have permission to give further information, including the name of the woman who originated the idea and who has so successfully carried it out, to any one requesting it. Workers Don't Dare To Strike in Russia The workers who are Striking in Hungary are doing so for a princi­ple and to beat off the Russian beasts who hold them in slavery.

The admiration and respect of loyal Americans throughout the country have been centered on the Amarillo, Texas Globe-Times for the spectacu­lar observance of United States Day on October 23rd and for the gracious and inspiring tribute paid to Amer­icanism and American institutions by that outstanding Daily of the Texas Panhandle. Featuring the celebration of the occasion by Amarillo's Hanson Post of the American Legion, of which Charles Gibson of that city is chair­man, the Globe-Times carried the American Flag in color on the front page together with the Legion chair­man's plea that American citizens always "fly the United States Flag and no other - either National or InternationaL" Carried also was a warning from the Legion concerning the loss of Amet.ican freedoms which imperil the Republic. ''As shocking as it may sound, we have already lost much that forefathers fought and died to attain," Gibson was quoted as saying. "By an arrogant usurpation of power, with­out the consent of the people or of Congress, the Federal Courts have changed the meaning of the Con­stitution.

Here is an illustration of how the United Nations partly grants and partly denies uHuman Rights."

They merely guarantee fift!f per­cent of a human's rights! ments of the Federal government, many of the freedoms and preroga­tives of the States have been lost." Gibson added that the Legion be­lieves that the Federal government has usurped the right to tax our people to support foreign govern­ments and to draft our citizens to serve in foreign armies - "even un­der the direction of our enemies." The Legion representative de­nounced the "godless, alien control­led United Nations" and UNESCO as well as the tax-exempt Foundations which seek to brainwash the Amer­ican people against those ideals which have made the United States the greatest nation on earth. Altogether, the patriotic celebra­tion in the Panhandle city so suc­cessfully carried out through the joint efforts o£ the Globe-Times and the Legion was heartening to Americans everywhere and will, it is hoped, in­spire similar action other cities throughout the country in the years to come. The puny ceremony on the follow­ing day honoring United Nations Day was sponsored, as might be expected, by the United Church Women, the YMCA, the YWCA, the Junior Cham­ber of Commerce and similar groups of divided loyalty and faltering be­lief in American institutions. According to Paul Peters' Octo­ber 30 News Bulletin, Washing­ton, D.C., the present administra­tion is the greatest peace-time spender in the entire history of the ReptLblic. An examination of Treasury documents sltows that in the calendar years 1953, 1954 and 1955, the Eisenhower admin­istration out-spent the Truman ad­ministration in the calendar years of 1950, 1951 and 1952 by over $45,000,000,000. And Truman it will be remembered, spent more than all the Presidents in history, put together. At this rate, it would be interesting to speculate as to how long the Republic can last before "spending itself out of ex­istence" as Lenin predicted in the long ago. As Hugo Black, associate jus­tice of the Supreme Court, con­tinues to follow right along in decisions that a1·e designed to stir up trouble in his own State of Alabama and insph·e hatred be­tween the two races of that great State, we wonder if he does not feel as much of a Quisling 41 Kada1· or some of the other turn­coats who, when the chips were down, sided with the enemy and against their own people. It seems to us that Communist Tito of Yugoslavia is all set to play some type of slick game, al­though we can't quite figure what it is. His pretended anger at the Soviets, his attempts to play peacemaker in Hungary does not ring true, in our viewpoint. His behavior generally seems dedicat­ed to incurring favo1' with the West, with the possible view of making another big touch. A Com­munist dictator is a Communist dictator and the only one to be trusted is a dead one. Miss Marilyn D. Major of 174 Munay Street, Binghamton, New York advises that a project is be­ing started caUed the National Boycott Richfield Movement in protest against the Richfield Oil Company's action in suing Fulton Lewis, Jr. for $7,000,000. Former President Says He Has No Regrets Page 7 In a speech in Chicago recently, former President, Herbert Hoover, said he had no regrets for haviQ(" oPposed the entry of the Unit., States into World War II. He certainly should have none fep the whole world recognizes now that our contrived entrance into a war that should not have concerned us, was one of the worst of our many blunders. At that time, Mr. Hoover urged that we should stand aside while two monsters, Stalin and Hitler destroyed each other pointing out that by this course we could, by our strength, dignity and neutrality, bring lasting peace to the world. But of course we had to get in the act because the alien countries who had more to say concerning our for­eign policy than our own leaders, told us to. And we took as our "ally" an uncivilized and brutal nation who is now doing everything within its pow­er to . spread Communism all over the face of the earth, and to destroy the United States in the process. The United Nations· which Sec~ retary of State Dulles calls that "vigorous instrument of interna­tional order and justice" was will­ing and eager to send its "inter­national police force" into Egypt to "halt aggression." Hungary, in what may be its death throes, beg­ged the United Nations to send its police force into that countl·y. The United Nations refused and was backed up by this country. The aggressor against Hungary was Russia; the aggressor against Egypt was not Russia. When he was Deputy Under Sec1·etary of State, Dean Rusk said that the United Nations Charter uis our basic, ove1·-all agreement with Russia." (Page 834 Document 87 of the United States Senate, Re­view of United Nations Charter). This official statement from the State Department needs clarifica­tion. What is this <~basic over-all agreement" which permits us to take the attitude that we will back up the United Nations when it tries to prevent aggression against Egypt, but will not do so when Russia commits aggression against helpless Hungary? Also why does the United Nations Charter con­stitute our ubasic, over-all agree­ment" with Russia and does not constitute our "basic over-all agreement" with, say, Lapland or Southwestern Patagonia? There must be some special and particular form of punishment for human beasts like Kadar of Hun­gary waiting for them in the here­after. There is no more degraded specimen of humanity than those who turn against their own people and betray their own country. In a modified form, and minus the supreme power of Kadar, we have nw.ny of these Quislings in this country. Texas A&M College certainly must be hard up for speakers as they sent a committee to Wash­ington to t1·y to arrange through the Indian Embassy for Nehru to speak to the school in December. No reason was given as to why they should have selected this particular old horse thief. Even if they felt they must have a for­eigner, they might have at least selected one who does not hate this country - if they could have found one. Page 8 Just How "Secure" Is Our National Security Program? Five times since 1952, officia~ of the General Electric Company have appeared before Congressional com· mittees in Washington to urge more adequate legislation on Communism in industry in the interest of na­tional security. In all this testimony before the committees, it was emphasized that there were two aspects of the prob­lem; first the danger of Communists functioning as labor leaders and, sec­ond, the peril of individual subver­sives in the employment of defense industries. The primary cause of the trouble is that Federal law compels heads of industry to recognize and bargain with any labor organization certified to it by the National Labor Rela­tions Board and as pro-Communists have been frequently flushed out of the NLRB when some outside source exposed them, that agency is natur­ally not too concerned as to whether the Union it certifies is or is not Communist - dominated. To expect otherwise, would be like asking a skunk to purge the odor from a den of polecats. General Electric is forced to dPal with the United Electrical Workers which has · been repeatedly accused by Congressional committees of being Communist-dominated. When any at­tempt has been made by official committees to investigate this UEW, witnesses almost invariably have pled the Fifth amendment when asked if they belonged to the Communist Party. When Lemuel R. Boulware, vice president of the General Electric Company last appeared before the Internal Security Sub-Committee of the Senate, he pointed out that the government has, for the most part, refrained -from taking any action against Communist dominated Unions and reminded the committee that when Attorney General Herbert Brownell prepared a list of "totali­tarian, Fascist, Communist or sub­versive organizations," no labor un­ions were included. He expressed amazement that the United States Government should or­der defense plant employers to bar­gain with unions generally regarded as being under the control and dom­ination of Communists. He expressed the belief that it was the responsibil­ity of the government to investigate and find out who are Communists among uniOn leaders and to prevent such union leaders from functioning in any way as the bargaining repre­sentatives of employees. He also pointed out that the basic principle of the Wagner and Taft~ HarUey acts is to guarantee that employees, and not employers - will choose the Union to be bargained with. Mr. Boulware further stated that during the Korean War, his com~ pany repeatedly asked the govern­ment to furnish names and informa­tion concerning any General Electric employes who might be considered subversive. This information was re­fused. Such criminal neglect and careless­ness in rna tters having to do with the national security is almost unbeliev· able and it is perhaps impossible for many to comprehend it, but for those who must keep up with such matters from official records, it is just one instance in hundreds in which our policies are indefensible. In this connection, it might be ad­visable for the social psychologists and political psychiatrists who are running wild on the bases in an ef­fort to turn up mentally ill persons, to do a little research work among those who are trusted with guard­ing our national security.

But the ballots were no sooner When the black cloud of integra~ion descended on Washington counted than they were up and at schools in 1954, practically without warning or preparation, as a re~ 'em. Emboldened by the fact that suit of the gruesome ruling by the Supreme Court, an insufferable they have gotten away so far prac· situation developed which finally resulted in the appointment of a tically with murder they ruled, not committee of the Congress to investigate. in an inter-state but in a state bus Every possible obstacle was thrown in the way of the investigation by the same forces which invariably gang up to halt probes into Com­munist infiltration in this country, integration being, of course, one of the most vicious facets of the Communist apparatus, but members of the Committee refused to be intimidated. They have conducted a thor­ough probe of the matter and will continue with the investigation, refusing to let anything throw them off the track. Washington school teachers, risking the loss of their jobs, appeared before the committee and testified to the horrible conditions which this unnatural mixing of black students with those of the white race has brought about. So far as education is concerned it was the consensus of the tes­timony that, rather than white children lifting colored children up to their own level, the Negroes were dragging white children down to the colored level with the result that the standard of Washington schools which was one of the highest before integration, has dropped to an all­time low. Morally, conditions are almost indescribable. The most common complaint seemed to be that Negro boys send obscene notes to white girls, make indecent exposure of their persons in the class room, carry switch-blade knives, destroy school property and steal money from other students, gang up and beat white children and are openly insult­ing to teachers. More pregnancies on the part of students have occured in the past two years than in all previous history and a case was re­ported in one room where a Negro girl bragged to white students of being an un-wed mother. Evidenc~ was also offered that one big Washington newspaper which is defmitely pro-Red slants all informa tion given to the pub1ic about conditions under segregation; that it deliberately reduced the number of cases of unwed Negro mothers in one school from 25 to 7 and that when a reporter was sent to one school to get a photo of the Negro honor students and was told there were none, he refused to make any picture at all. Although strong attempts are being made to prevent a complete report given out concerning the investigation, it is understood that such report will be made and that it will probably be available to the public. Members of the Subcommittee to investigate the situation are James C. Davis of Georgia, Chairman, John Bell Williams of Mississippi, Woodrow W. Jones, North Carolina, A. L. Miller, Nebraska, Joel T. Broyhill of Virginia and DeWitt S. Hyde of Maryland. Western Diplomats Insulted at Party Given by Soviet Officials Officials of the "peace-loving" Soviet Republic which is a top­dog in the "peace~loving" United Nations, threw a party in Moscow on November 18 which, believe it or not, was attended by our Ambassador and those from other Western Countries. . No S?~ner had they arrived at the party until the vodka-swilling swme, Ntktta S. Kruschchev, Communist Party head began showering them with insults for no obvious reason except, perhaps, just to keep his hand in and not get out of practice in his favorite indoor sport. "We will bury you" was his cheerful greeting to the American envoy and the English and French r~presentatives as well. "If you do not like us, do not accept our invitations and do not invite us to you". Adding sacrilege to insult the drunken beast bragged of con­ditions in the Soviet and added: "Things arc going very well with us. If we believed in the existence of God, we would thank Him for it". Incredible as this barbaric behavior may seem, it is even more amazing that official representatives of supposed Christian Nations should be present at such degenerate orgies. It was the second t~me in recent weeks that the Western Ambas­sadors had attended a similar event in Moscow and insults to their countries were hurled at them on both occasions. They walked out the first time and then came back for more. The explanation of the affair, not of Kruschchev's performance, but of the presence of the American Ambassador at the second event, after being forced after repeated insults to leave the first, should be interesting and informative. Full details of Kruschchev's condud was given in a United Press release on November 19. case, that segregation must go. Specifically they were ruling on Montgomery, Alabama, buses but other integrationists will jump the gun and try to put it over all over the South. The only heartening thing about the whole lamentable affair is that, in those Southern States where there is strong, vigorous and de~ termined leadership, there will be no de~segregation of bus passen­gers, Supreme Court or no Su­preme Court. Later: As we go to press, Her­bert Brownell, Jr., Attorney Gen­eral of the United States through appointment by President Eisen· hower, is reported in an announce­ment from Washington to have stated that "The United States will force scrapping of Bus Segrega­tion, in the 14 Southern States where the statutory enactment calls for segregation on buses." The announcement from Brown~ ell came just at the height of the Dock Workers strike which threat· ens to become nation-wid~ and wh ich is intended to cause gener demoralization throughout t h a country, thereby aiding the Com· munist cause. His announcement also came at a time when the situa­tion in Hungary and the Middle East threatens to involve the whole world. What an appropriate time to announce more aggression against the South by the Federal government. This latest assault by the Su­preme Court should at least have one effect and that is to cause Americans to have more sympathy for the Hungarians who are being over-run by hordes of Soviet ter­rorists. In a milder form we are suffering a threat to our freedom and our rights from tyrants, even though these tyrants are only nine old men on the Supreme Court. House Democratic members are said to be in a dither over the propriety of seating a newly~ elected Cong1·essman from Massa­chusetts who has se1·ved a term in the penitentiary for income tax evasion. A good way to settle it would be for each member to figure up the total amount of extortion against taxpayers which he and his colleagues are guilty of. It will then be easier for them to judge the morals of the new House member.
