Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 9 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, SEPTEMBER, 1958 No.9 Pentagon ''Surrender Plan'' Merely Confirms A Policy We Have Been Following For Years Pygmies Fill The Steps Wh.ich Giants Once Trod -The voluntary retirement of Honorable William E. Jenner of Indiana from the United States Senate leaves less than a dozen members ot that once famed body who have the faintest understanding of the fundamental principles of the American governing system or a modicum of respect for the Constitution and basic law of the Republic. From the day he entered the Senate in 1945, the Indiana statesman has done sentinel duty not only for the people of his own State but for the citizenship of the entire nation by warning them of the International Conspiracy against the American Republic which, at long last, is finally becoming clear to even the most obtuse and stupid among us. His research on the subject of International intrigue against the United States has-been thorough, profound and extensive and his under­• tanding of the world plot against his country is equalled by that of few ot his colleagues in either House of Congress. His speeches on the floor of the Senate, incorporating sound reason­ing brilliant logic and matchless oratory, will find their place on the pages of history alongside those of the immortal statesmen who preceded him in an era when great issues were deliberated and resolved by great minds and when the puny considerations which now clutter up the calendar of Congress had not yet been accorded an honored place on the agenda of the nation's highest lawmaking body. With Senator Jenner's going, mediocrity will have advanced a long step in the nation's capital and the Republic's internal security materially weakened by the removal of one of its strongest pillars. His departure scores a signal victory for men of Lilliput mind and Dwarf intellect who are fast overrunning the historic City along the banks of the Potomac. How To Keep Our Ambassadors Of Good Will From Being Spat Upon In July the White House authorized the sending of the neat little sum of $1,000,000 to Guatamala in order that the people of that Central American Republic might build themselves a new vocational school. To make the gift more significant and the occasion more touching this money arrived in Guatamala and was publicly announced coincident with the arrival there of Milton Eisenhower, the President's baby brothef and private Ambassador of Good Will. As a result Brother Milton was applauded and didn't get spat upon one single time. Perhaps a million dollars is a small price to pay to prevent the best Sunday suit of a special high State official from being covered with spit, to say nothing of circumventing an insult to the dignity of this country. But what we fear is that another Ambassador of Good Will, the Honorable Richard Nixon, is going to feel that he has been discriminated again•t and to wonder why they didn't shoot a million dollars down that way iust ahead of him. When a leak from the Defense Department last month revealed that a serious study Is being made by a group working with that agency to develop plans for a possible surrender of this country to our Communist enemy in the event of war, Democratic members of the United States Senate blew a gasket. They wailed and wept and gnashed their teeth at the bare thought of our securay forces daring to predict anything but victory in any potential encounter with Communists. And yet when a matchless American patriot tried to convince them a few short years ago that there were those in the Pentagon who were protecting Communists and who would not even admit who promoted Peress, his colleagues hooted, derided and mocked him and finally smeared and "cen· sured" him into his grave. After all we've been "sur• rendering" to Communism for almost a quarter century, with the consent and approval of the Congress, so why start pawing up dirt and bellowing to liigh Heaven now when most of the "surrendering'' has already been done? Certainly it comes with ill grace for members of the Senate to shed crocodile tears at this late date over the Soviet menace after their dastardly crucifixion of Communism's staunchest foe. We seem to remember that when the late great Se.nator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin implied that the Pentagon might not be exactly the citadel of l,pyalty and patrioti5m which the security forces of a nation are presumed to be and that they were protecting Communists, the most vocal and vitriolic dissenters were in the United States Senate. One ot these, if memory serves, was Senator Stuart Symington of Missouri who collaborated with the Pentagon in withholding information from tho public about conditions of which the Wisconsin Senator complained. It is now universally conceded that the latter's untimely death was hastened by his unequal and heart~breaking struggle with Communist­appeasers in the Pentagon, tile White House and the Senate. On August 8 of this year, following the publication of an article in a large daily newspaper titled "Question of When United States Should Surrender in All-Out Nuclear Attack Studied for Pentagon" Symington rose in his mighty wrath and had the article printed in the Congressional Record with recommendation that something be done in the matter. Whereupon Democratic members of the Senate, in outraged virtue, went at the subject with fang and claw and the ensuing battle of words lasted all day and far into the night. If we personally refuse to get all lathered up at the discovery that the Pentagon is contemplating our possible surrender to the Commun~ ists even before a war is begun, it is because we long ago lost our capacity for surprise at anything which has to do with official Washington. For years we have been watching and enumerating as best we could for our readers the "surrender" of our rights, freedom and sovereignty to Communist ideology and the alleged action of the Pentagon in pre­paring for potential surrender of the Republic is anti~climax so far as we are concerned. For the information of the disturbed members of the Senate whose reaction to the situation is one of horror and shocked disbelief we offer (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It-The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1958 To Declare Loyalty To Congress Boosts The National U.S. Is Held Invalid Debt Ceiling by $8,000,000,000 The almost universal distrust of the Supreme Court by reputable citizens has been accentuated by a recent decision, declaring the Cali­fornia Loyalty oath invalid. The California law declared that citi­zens asking for rebate of their taxes, together with institutions claiming exemption altogether, should take a loyalty oath. This certain ultra-liberals and pro-Com­munist organizations declined to do. The courts declared against them. The issue was appealed and finally reached the Supreme Court. It decided against the law and the decisions of the lower courts. This actions of the Supreme Court i~ but another proof of its radical character and disloyalty to Ameri­can usage. Long ago the court should have been impeached. Its friendliness to Communism and its constant and oft-repeated violation of the laws it is supposed to uphold is now a public scandaL-Meth­odist Challenge. A Position Which No Real American Will Challenge In reply to the President's absurd claim that it Was the "solemn duty of all Americans to comply with Federal Court school desegregation orders", Governor J. Lindsay AI~ mond of Virginia made this reply which expressed the sentiments of all Americans worthy of the name: In a farewell blast at American taxpayers and a final attempt to bring about national bankruptcy which world Marxists so ardently desire for this country, members of Congress voted an $8,000,000,000 increase in the national debt limit before adjourning and rushing home to ask the voters to re-elect them. This makes the national debt lim­it now $288,000,000,000.00 an all time high and we thought the squandering administration of Tru­man who spent more money than all Presidents in history up to that time, was horrible. One of the few remaining real Americans left in the Senate, Sen­ator George W. Malone of Nevada, talked for two hours against rais­ing the limit but his colleagues in that body had but one thought in their single-track minds and that was to get back home and start brain-washing the electorate. What did they care about a little thing like an $8,000,000,000.00 increase in the national debt limit? And so the grand march of a great Republic to its own destruc­tion goes merrily on. Fair Deal Democrats who have the iciea of nominating John Ken­nedy of Massachusetts a.s their candidate for President had just as well go ahead and put Walter Reuther on the ticket to begin with. In the event of Kennedy's election this labor racketeer is the one who would run the job. "There will be no enforced inte-­gration in Virginia. This is not a matter of defiance. I have no spirit of defiance. My obligation to up­hold the U. S. Constitution is of just as much concern to the gov­ernor of a sovereign State as it is to the President. It is my deep conviction that the Supreme Court's decision is in violation of the Con~ stitution. My obligation is just as \ strong as it ever was. My obliga~ tion to uphold law and order is a matter on my conscience, a matter I will diligently observe." If we had 48 Governors like that, tyranny at the Federal level would be put down in thirty days. Pentagon 'Surrender Plan' (Continued from Page I) a few instances out of hundreds of cases where those entrusted with the preservation and perpetuation of Constitutional Government in the United States have "surrendered" to the Soviets which prove that we not only advocate "surrender" as a national policy but practice it. This country "surrendered" to Communism: When we adopted the income tax designed by Communist Karl Marx to redistribute our wealth and bankrupt our solvent nation; also when we went on the dole and undertook to underwrite the living ex­penses of the citizen, guarantee wages and hours to workers and adopted other Socialist devices which are abhorrent to the people of a Free Republic. When the Congress denied to American farmers the God-given right to work the good earth and to plant crops on their own land in any manner and in any amount they might desire and passed legislation which treats them as criminals and hauls them off to jail if they violate regulations formulateS by Washington politicians who wouldn't know the difference b.etween a tractor and a jackass, and whose farm chores have all been performed with a fountain pen. When the United States Senate ratified the Charter of the United Nations and launched the American Republic on its first downward step toward a Communist-dominated One-World Government. When we adopted the infamous Marshall Plan which, under various names, has now been fastened like a blood-sucking leech to the nation's permanent economy and under which Congress is giving away billions of dollars of other people's money which results in perpetuating and sustaining Communism throughout the world. When 2109 Methodist Ministers, 1411 Episcopalian Ministers and a corresponding number of the pastors of other Protestant churches of the United States joined up with Communist Fronts whose objective was the overthrow of the American. form of government and when the National Council of Churches of Christ committed its membership to every policy of government for which the American Communist Party stands. When Congress surrendered its Constitutional authority to fix tariff rates on foreign imports and allowed this authority to fall into the hands of a Commission composed principally of foreigners in Corn~ munist-infested Geneva. When MacArthur was stopped dead in his tracks at the Yalu River thereby enabling victory to be handed to the Communists on a silver platter in Truman's Police Action. When American military forces were held back outside Berlin and the Russians permitted to go in and take that defeated city, thereby beginning their Death March across Eastern Europe which ended only when a large part of the world was brought into the Communist camp. • When the American State Department betrayed China to the Com· munists; when an American President at Yalta delivered Asia to the So­viets; when another President at Potsdam surrendered North Korea to Stalin and when a third American President betrayed the enslaved peoples of the world by mixing, mingling and imbibing of the cup that cheers with their brutal Communist masters at Geneva. When the Supreme Court of the United States capitulated to the Soviet and began handing down decisions which emptied our jails and penitentiaries of Communist prisoners, set them up as reputable citizens with rights equal to those of loyal Americans and denied the Sovereign States their statutory prerogative of prosecuting Communist saboteurs and spies. When Educators of the nation initiated a general program. under the sponsorship of the National Education Association, whose aims were to infiltrate the minds of American students with hatred for the Free Enterprise System and to sell them on the proposition that Communist ColJectivism was the model on which governments of men should be based. ' When members of Congress publicly lashed out for the record against Foreign Aid, Extension of Trade Agreements, Federal Aid to Education, Civil Rights and other Communist-inspired legislation and then knuckled under like cringing puppies and voted for each on final passage. When the Executive Department of government adopted Soviet Secret Police tactics_ and sent armed troops into a Sovereign State to enforce with bayonets a Marxist-inspired !"fling of the Supreme Court. When the Congress of the United States renounced its Constitution­al right to declare war and permitted this authority to ultimately land in the Communist-dominated United Nations. When an American Secretary of State in 1945 went to Madison Square Garden to extend an official welcome to the Red Dean of Canter­bury universally recognized as one of the religious spokesmen for the Kremlin. When traitors in the Treasury Department secretly gave plates to Russia in order that the Bolsheviks might print millions of dollars of ~~~rency which could be used in any potential war of the future against All these official actions and scores of others are insidious evidence of our "surrender• to Communism. Any American with the brains. acumen and understanding of a disabled chipmunk should have been able to recognize at least some of these cases of "surrender" to Com­munism for what they were~ Ce~inly members of Congress were familier with these degrading steps wh1ch have been taken to incorporate Communist policies into ~:n~~~os::.tem of government, since they were a party to most such In view of this, it seems just a little bit silly now for members of the Senate to rave and rant over the Pentagon's apparent plans to prepare for the grand finale when "surrender" becomes total instead of only piece-meal. M~antime. a!l amazing _number of u.-.standing American patriots are becommg bone-hred of trymg to warn those who will not listen, alert those who feel no concern or restrain those who are determined to collab· orate in their own destruction. ' Also they are understandably disgusted at the stupidity which blankets the nation hke a fog and are wondering just how long any nation can endure whose leadership is thickly larded with traitors and whose citizenship is top-heavy with fools. September, 1958 THE SOUTHERN CON S ERVATIVE Page 3 W e1kness Will Continue To Mark Texas' Representation In Senate Court Justices Set A Record For Which Few Will Envy Jhem The candidate of Negroes, labor unio:1s and other extreme left~wing elements was r~-elected to the United States Senate at the first Texas primary on July 26. This means that Texas, like so many other unfortunate States will continue to have its weakest rep­resentation in the Upper House in all history. Statesmanship, so far as that body is conce;;ned, is more and more becoming little more than a memory. There are many caus~s for the resUlts in the Texas July primary, all of which are comparatively un­important now since the outcome is already decided. For one thing, many Texa:S con­servatives performed according to custom and instead of working to­gether for the opponent of Ralph Yarborough, they either half-heart­edly endorsed him or stabbed him in the back. Also, many Conservatives, figur­ing that the battle was won. blithe­ly left for vacations in far-off places without bothering to cast an ab­sentee ballot. Perhaps the oddest phenomenon of all was the fact that some of the State's wealthiest citizens con­trihuted to the Yarborough cam­paign. It is said that politics makes strange bedfellows but probably no stranger combination has ever been evolved in the history of expedient coalitions than that which brought together into one camp the labor unions, Negroes and large oil op­erators. Yarborough is said to have em­ployed tactics which, rather than being new, are as old as time and politics. While publicly marching under the banner of the liberal fringe, he was privately trading out to support the interest of wealthy oil men, thereby olaying both ends against the middle. Our personal brand of philosophy in a case like this is that voters get what they deserve and deserve what they get. If Russia Is Ahead of The President's Authority To United States, Here's Why Destroy Industry Extended Those who are worrying about Russia being "ahead" of the United States are assigning the wrong rea­sons for such a state of affairs. They attribute it to the Bolshe­vik system of education, to the ad­vancement of science in that coun­try and to various other conditions in the Russian 'economic and edu­cational systems. The truth is far different from these conceptions. If the Russians are "ahead" of us it is because of this fundamental difference in the American people and those of Russia: Russian Communists are nation­alists of the highest order; they have the most hellish system of government on earth but they ar~ loyal to it and to their country. We, on the other hand, are will­ing to give up our sovereignty to the first One-World organization that cpmes along and regard na­tionalism as something to be ashamed of. We have the greatest system of government ever con­ceived by man but we are not loyal to it and are letting International Communism destroy it. It is as simple as that. The measure extending the Re­ciprocal Trade Agreements Act as finally passed provided that this monstrosity will be in effect for four years more. The House voted for five vears' extension and the Senate for- three years. The compromise in Confer­ence Committee fixed the time at four years. Of course it made little differ­ence whether the proposed exten­sion was three, four or five years. It will continue in effect perman­ently and be extended as it ex­pires unless, by a miracle, the com­plexion of Congress is changed and loyal Americans are once more in the majority in that body. Meantime the dictatorial powers given the President under the ex­tension will enable him to make de­cisions which will destroy still more American industries before he leaves office in 1960. Oh, for a revival of the Spirit of 1776 and for a 1·esurgence of the patriotism which once overflowed in every American heart. A Promise Which Was Not.

SOUTHERNERS ASK ONLY TO BE TREATED AS WELL AS THE ARABS "I do not believe that these gains should be whittled away by creep­ing inflation. Our first task must be to go after waste and extravagance. By this means, we will be able to fi rst eliminate the deficit and then to lower taxes." With' squandering of taxpayers money at an all-time high, the debt limit just raised by $8,000,000,000, taxes not only reduced but likely to go higher next year according to reliable estimates, it is going to be difficult for the average American taxpayer to guess, off-hand, who made the above promise when run­ning for high office. It is difficult to understand why Washington officials give in grace­fully when opposed and defeated by foreigners but bow their necks and vow to whip the South down to its knees when that area merely demands its rights. At the Middle East Conference of the United Nations rer.ently, for instance, where our leaders were going to tell them how the c0w ate the cabbage. Nasser won every round and the American delegates got nothing but red faces. Middle East representatives made it crystal clear that they were going to run their own af­fairs and demanded that we get out of Lebanon and let them do it. The President graciously acceded to their demands and is said to be planning to withdraw trooos from Leb:-:mon as early as possible and with minimum loss of face. In the case of the South, how­ever, instead of stepping aside and letting that section run its own af­fairs, he has intimated that he plans to send troops into Sovereign Southern States and compel the people at bayonet point to submit to a type of tyrannical domination by the Supreme Court which is in­tolerable to the citizens of a free Republic. He seems utterly unable to un­derstand that the South is equally determined to settle its own prob­lems and that it is going to do just that. It would simplify matters great­ly if he would on ly pretend that the people of the South are for­eigners and treat them with the same consideration and grant them the same right of self-government which he so readily accorded the Arabs. They were the words of the Hon­orable Dwight D. Eisenhower in a speech on October 16, 1952. T he administration has announc­ed that this country will supply arms to Jakarto in Indonesia. A l­ready Army Globemasters operat­ing in Japan are reported to have f lown material to t hat Communist government, and apparently this will be the policy in the future. Human Events is a weekly pub­lication issued from Washington whose comment on current affairs has won the respect of the read­ing American public. Recently it compiled a record of the vote of individual members of the Supreme Court in rulings af­fecting the internal security of the United States. This record hnd ref­erence to attempts to over~hrow d1e American government by So­viet agents and the decisions of the Court upholding them. While the record of all members of the Court is incomorehensible and constitutes a bbck p:tge in judicial history, there is one member whose vote against his own country's securitY and in fa­vor of the enemies of the American Republic, is one hundred per cent according to Human Events' com­pilation. Hugo Biack of Alabama, it re­veals, has never failed to vote against security measures desi~n­ed to protect his own country, when called on to pass on acts of those violating them. The record of members of th:) Court who have voted against th:~ national security, according to Hu­man Events is as follows: Black, 71 times; Douglas, 66 times~ Warren, 38 times; Brennan, 18 times; Frankfurter, .. $ •. times; Harlan, 20 times; Bu.ri.on·, 32 ... fim2s; Whittaker, 4 times; Clar!t, l:S times. Whittaker's Jaw record of con­curring in m lings which nre ad­vantageous to Communists is prob· ably due to the fact that h~ was the last one named to the Court and he hasn't had time to catc~ up with the others. In another, and less corrupt, era there was a name for those high officials who gave aid and com­fort to the enemy and they were hanged for such offense. From a business man in Jackson­ville, Florida: "I have said it· to many people and I .want to say to you that I think you have a great~ er understanding of furidamental principles of government than most men and ce1·tainly more than any woman I ha.ve ever known. Also I think you m·e the best political writer of this gennation.'' That is perhaps the over-statement of the century but thanks a million, any­how. As was to be expected play~ wright Arthur Miller who con· fessed to long association with Coonmunists but refused to name his associates and was conv-icted of contempt of Congress, hac; been completely exone1·ated by the Su~ preme Court who reversed the con~ viction.

Income Tax Racket Is Spreading to Cities The Amerkan people generally think of the income tax racket as a corrupt practice which is indulg­ed in only by Washington politici­ans but this is no longer true. Corruption in government is con­! agio~s and has a way of spread: mg hke smallpox or other repul­sive disease. Not only has this obnoxious leg­islation been sneaked into the sta­tute books of thirty-one States of the American Union, but munici­pal governments are fast getting into the act and subjecting the cit­izen to this type of highway rob· bery after having exhausted every other method of taking away his earnings. Officials of our own city of Fort Worth have caught the bug and are playing with the idea of adopting an income tax and are giving as their excuse for putting this addi­tional burden on local citizens the fact that Toledo, Ohio, does it al­though what possible connection there is between conditions in To­ledo and Fort Worth has not been made clear. Chief proponents of the idea are the tax spenders and naturally those who would have to put up the additional revenue are violent­ly opposed. When the subject comes before the people for adop­tion it is believed, and hoped, that it will be snowed under by an ava­lanche of votes. Some of the acts of the admin­istration, the Supreme Court and the -Conqress could not have been more effectively designed to sabo­tage the Constitution and destroy the AmeTican form of government and Way of Life, if they had been performed by the Kremlin in Mos­cow.

Senator William E. Jenner of Ind­iana introduced a bill for this pur­pose early in the session and in plenty of time for full deliberation and passage. It was voted out of committee by a heavy majority but it struck a snag which held it in committee until the closing days of the session when it was thrown into the hopper with a spate of other bills and every possible par~ liamentary tactic employed to de­feat it which finally succeeded. hers, it may be hard for those who ficia ls with foam rubber for a spine do not realize that legislation is that State accepted the un-Consti­largely horse-trading, log-rolling tutional ruling of the Supreme and vote-swapping to understand · Court on school integration with­how one man could successfully out protest and let Negroes flock thwart the will of the majority of into their .public school. 170,000,000 American citizens. j<Moderates" there insisted, at The position of the maJority lead­er is a powerful one and since the Senate is a sort of private club where the members have an "und­erstanding" and stick together, the results can be astounding, and fre· quently are.

Recently droves of young Negro hoodlums were sent by the NAACP into drug store fountains thf're to demand seJ1'ice in the way of food and drink. They swarmed all over the place, naturally driving white customers away. In some places owners removed the stools at the fountains to prevent them from be­ing occupied by the Negroes. After behind-the-scenes maneuv· ering during the night the Senate reversed itself next day and killed the bill by one vote by sending it back to committee. The "snag" which was struck by the bill and which kept it from com­ing to the floor until there was no hope of pass,age w~s_. re ported in the press -as Senator Lyndon Johnson of Texas, majority leader, who was opposed to it and who voted to send it back to committee which effec­tively killed it for the session.

However, he does not come up for re-election until 1960 and he probably figures - no doubt cor· rectly - that his betrayal of anti­Communist Americans will have been forgotten by that time. Finally a store owner named Katz capitulated and served them which set them off and the young hoodlums ran wild. It was learned later that the NAACP had been coaching them for over a year to make this assault on establishments there and that it was all planned by that organiza· tion. It is a sad commentary on the Police Department of Oklahoma City that they did not take over in the situation and handle the matter as it should have been handled. MEMORIES OF THE "OLD WEST" WILL BE REVIVED IN PROJECT As it is, that great State is in for .deep sorrowful trouble which could have been prevented with a 1ittle leadership and firm determi· nation. Memories of the Old West are being revived in a project initiated by the North Fort Worth Business Association through which mem­bers of that organization are re­storing old land-marks in that area which is known as "Cowtown U.S.A." The idea is to create a reminder of the early days of the SeVeritieS and Eighties and to bring back Fort Worth's colorful past when only cow trails led to a remote outpost which has now grown to a modern metropolitan city.

September, 1958 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Paqa 5 Early American Statesmen Knew What They Were Talking About Once again our top diplomats, in what they regarded as a world A • ~~s!~~i~h?;c!~.•ir wad and fen nat Rambow of Hope And once again the United Na­tions has demonstrated that in meeting these crises and maintain­ing peace, it is about as effective as the Womens Christian Temper­ance Union is in putting down or­ganized crime. Sometime ago there was another of the innumerable squabbles in the Middle East which have been re­curring there for a thousand years. The President whose favorite sport, aside from golf, is sending troops into trouble spots from Little Rock to Beirut, fired a contingent of American soldiers into Lebanon. Not to be outdone, the Prime Minister of England shot British troops into Jordan. The American and British people never understood why these steps were taken or why, in peactime, their fighting men were being trans­ported to obscure places of the wortd, but they didn't have any­thing on the President or the Prime Minister. They didn't appear to know either. Probably it just seem­ed like a good idea at the time. In retrospect, it seems that it was just one of those off-the-cuff de­cisions on the part of the White House like the one which stopped several countries in the Suez Canal deal from going in and cleaning up on Nasser before he got too big for his Bermuda shorts. Any way when the situation got out of hand and the clamor in the Middle East for the United States and England to get out of that area became loud and insistent, the United Nations was drawn into the picture to figure a way out. After all, that is what it was set up for - to settle disputes and maintain world peace. So confident was the belief that the United Nations would take over, smooth everything out, make Nas­ser behave and restore unity in the Middle East, that the President him­self made a personal appeal to the General Assembly and offered a ~<plan." The result of that fiasco is so humiliating that it is best forgotten except that we should benefit by the point it proves and that is that the great statesmen who headed up our government in the early days of the Republic knew exactly what they were talking about when they warned against mixing in the af­fairs of foreign nations. A Negro minister of Little Rock has written the President begging him not to interfere with the ruling of Federal judge Lemley of Hope, Arkansas, who ruled that integra­tion be postponed for two and a half years in the public schools. The colored minister was the Rev. M. D. Wi!Zett, pastor of a congre­gation whom he addresses exclu· sively by means of radio.

Appears in the Sky For the first time in the history of the United States, members of the Supreme Court have been con­demned for un-Constitutional be­havior by a strong committee of members of the legal profession. At the Conference of Chief Jus­tices meeting in Pasadena, Califor­nia, and composed of delegates from the 48 States, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, a 36-page report was issued which expressed the views of highly placed jurists throughout the nation that the High Court has exceeded its powers and Constitu­tional authority in rendering policy­making decisions. One paragraph in the report ex­pressed the content of the entire re­port in these terse words: "It has long been an American boast that we have a government of laws, not of men. We believe that any study of recent decisions of the Supreme Court will raise at least considerable doubt as to the validity of that boast". This is the healthiest sign so far that relief from judicial tyr-anny may be in the offing and may be the beginning of a campaign of the judiciary to clean its own house. Concerning the condemnation of the Supreme Court by the Confer­ence of Chief Justices, the Dallas Morning News said editorially in part: "The Pasadena action is with­out precedent in the history of this country. Surely nothing could accentuate more the low esteem to which has fallen a Court that should be composed only of the best judicial thought the country can muster". Both the Repub He an and Demo­cratic treasuries are said to be practically empty and contributors are understandabt11 hesitating to make donations. It would be a wonderful thing for the country if both political parties could be starved to the point where they were forced to drop all those now proposed for nomination on both tickets and responsible Americans put up for election instead. Not a person so far proposed by either one as head of the national ticket is fit to be dog-catcher. According to an article in the Chicago Tribune on July 25, the Russians have proposed the con­struction of a vast underocean rail and vehicular tunnel connecting Alaska, our forty-ninth "State" and Siberia. According to the Tribune the proposal was given strong en­dorsement by Fair Deal Senator Warren G. Magnuson of the State of Washington. We!!, that 'would make it easier for them to get here, at l~ast. Secretary General Dag Ham­marskjold has estimated that it will cost $59,006,170.00 to operate the United Nations next year, an increase of $2,163,530 over 1958. As far as accomplishment is con­cerned,. the outfit is not only not worth fifty nine million dollars. It is not worth fifty nine dollars, nor fifty nine cents. Can We Condemn Soviets In The Face of Such Tyranny As This? Congress Pays Off First And Investigates Later In the face of admissions of wan­ton waste, extravagance and sharp practices by the United States In­formation Agency, the House has voted ten million dollars more to be squandered by that useless oper­ation. After giving the agency this amount of money, it was announc­ed that an investig:ation of the USIA scandals would be held by a House Committee. All of which is a typical example of the utterly senseless manner in which Washington politicians op­erate - they go at it backwards. Normal and responsible persons would have investigated first and paid the money later if charges of corruption were found to be un­warranted. But not the Congress. They approoriate money first and investigate later. During the debate in the House it was brought out that USIA's blun­der in the purchase of land on which to build a Voice of America station cost the taxpayers of the United States $1,200,000.00. The agency bought land near Wilmington, North Carolina, for $82 an acre and then turned around and sold it for $44 per acre. after deciding the land was not suitable. Then the brillia.nt. c)lara.cters who direct the agency changed their mind again and decided to buy land in the same vicinity near Wilming­ton for which they intend to pay $200 an acre. It was for this pur­pose that they asked, and got, the ten million dollars although the clown who is head of the agency said they would have to have $27,- 000,000 before the project was fin­ished. An example of inconsistency and incongruity in legislative conduct which is convincing proof to nor­mal persons that many of our law­makers more properly belong in an insane asylum than in the Halls of Congress, was given during the de­bate on the appropriation to USIA. Congressman John Taber of New York and Frank Bow of Ohio, two of the strongest advocates of econ­omy and critics of waste in the Lower House severely condemned USIA for the waste of taxpayers money in the Wilmington deal. Then both of them turned around and voted to give the outfit ten million doilars more to squander. May the good Lord save us! Better REMEMBER LITTLE ROCK because you may hear more about it! Here's instructive and interest­ing information from Washing­ton's Associated Press bureau: uJohn Foster Dulles, America's travellingest Secret'tl,ry of State, has passed the 500,000 mile mark." This is his foreign and domestic mileage since he took office in January, 1953, and most of his travelling has been done by air. The United States would have been better off if he had stayed at home and not traveled one mile. Ethan Stangland, an Indiana farmer is desperately unhappy and depressed and wonders how he will be able to make a living. Mr. Stangland has a large crop of corn and beans which must be harvested before it is too late but ~e is unable to do anything about It because Federal government agents came to his farm recently and hauled away his two farm trac­tors right in the busiest season of the year. When the government agents took Mr. Stangland's tractors away, they left an armed guard on duty at the farm, while the owner of the farm practically sobbed as he re­marked to bystanders: "This just about puts me out of business." From the action of the mighty Federal government in this case it might be inferred · that Mr. S ta~g­land had stolen the tractors from a Washington agency or that he was some kind of a thief, murderer or bank-robber. This is not true. Mr. Stangland's only offense was that he had plant­ed more wheat on his farm than Washington politicians thought he was entitled to plant. For this he is being treated like a common criminal and punished as if he had commited a major crime. _And in Texas, J. Evetts Hale-y Jr., Wlth a measure of courage befitting the son of an unafraid and illustri­ous father, is waging the same_ bat­tle against bureaucrats who invad- ~ee~·i5b~~~~~~~l=n~a~r~~:c:~to~~~ instructions laid down by Washing­ton dictators. All American citizens with a spark of initiative, independence and self-respect, whether they are fasro.~rs or city dwellers, had better give heed to this monstrou~ viola­tion of the rights of those who till the soil to plant their crops and manage their farms without bureau­cratic interference, and band to­gether to get this despotic law re­pealed. Washington has built up a Frank­enstein in the form of a huge ty­rannical government which is de­stroying the American Republic just as surely and effectively as would the dropping of atom bombs on the people of the nation. · A Congressional Committee in Washington has asked that a law be passed to keep the American public from being fleeced by 1Jhony fund raisers. How about ·a law to protect the public from being fleeced by Congress? In both cases, nobody knows what becomes of the money taken from the pock­ets of the people. A new angle of the tax racket has been worked in California where six convicts in Fol-som pris­on, by turning in phony forms to the Department of Interna.1. Reve­nue, received tax refunds in the amount of $1,500. This was $250 each which is not bad considering that they had been guest.c of the State during the period involved and had not earned anything. The Warden has announced that In­ternal Revenue agents will investi­gate.

On August 18, the Yugoslav Dic­tator notified Washington that he must have from us $250,000,000.00 "to help offset the Soviet Union's mounting economic squeeze". By that he had reference to the Soviets' promise to give him $280,- 000,000.00 but which, he whined, they have not done. Of course they haven't and they're not going to. The Soviets are knaves, barbarians and murder­ous thieves but nobody can say they are fools . They use their money to build up security and defense for their own country and for that one thing, and that one thing alone, they are to be commended. In the same press release an­nouncing this demand from Com­munist Tito for money from our Treasury, it was said that officials of the State Department "were sympathetic to the request," which is p~rhaps the understatement of the year. It goes without saying that Tito wilt get what he asks for without so much as a "by your leave" to those who have to cough up the money. !.. ~.~ .

During the most depraved and abandoned session of Congress in history which has just closed, both the House and Senate passed reso­lutions favoring a permanent United Nations Police Force "to preserve peace in the world's troublo spots". Does that mean, may we ask, that in the "trouble spots" such as Lit­tle Rock and other places in the South where "trouble spots" are likely to be as thick as fleas on a pot hound in the- months to come, a World Police Force will take over and prod the sovereign citizens of that :uea in the back with bay­onets? Bascom Timmons, one of the most reliable correspondents in VVashington, writes in his column that the next session of Congr ess will be far to the left of the one which has just closed. With the gTeatest respect for Mr. Timmons, we think he is mistaken. W e don't believe that would be possible. If Diogones were ro return to earth and extend his search for an honest man into the United States Senate, he would make a bee-line to John J. Williams of Del­aware. This great public servant can smell out crookedness in govern­m~ nt agencies like a bird-dog point~ ing a quail. His latest discovery is that the Emergency Drouth program of the Federal government is being oper­ated as a racket. He produced evidence, as usual, to sustain his charges and no one could, or even tried, to deny that he was right. But he has uncovered so much crookedness, misappropri­ation of public money and down­right stealing that his calloused col­leagues no longer even blush, much less do anything about it. He showed where the Farmers Home Administration which is ad­ministering the drouth program and which was set up to aid small farmers to maintain their basic herds of cattle had made a $1,046,- 000 "loan" to one of the largest and wealthiest ranches in Texas al­though that ranch was already de­linquent in the amount of $549,- 111 on a loan which the same a~en­cy had made them the year b'efore. The. ranch.. was ap.arently operat- ~~~1 o~o~~~~~:et·b!~ii~hash~~~s F:~; theory that the best way to get out of debt is to borrow more money. Senator Williams said that of the last loan, this large Texas ranch took $257.000 to enlarge its herd and buy more equipment. "In other words," Williams said, "The government loaned the ranch money to buy more livestock to be put on relief." The Senator named thirty-three other cases in which large ranchers were loaned money for the same purposes and used it in the same manner. It is an indefensible situation but is only a small part of the pattern of corruption which attends govern­ment agencies which have been set up for extra-curricular activities and which have no place in our governing system and would be abolished instantly if we returned to Constitutional government. In a corrupt system of govern­ment, it follows automatically that corrupt practic~s will prevail. From a County Official in At­lanta, Georgia: "The last edition of your paper is one of the best yet. There is a program which comes over Radio Station W AGA here each night during the week from 8:30 to 9:30 o'clock. You may be interested to know that 1101Jr editorial tftled 10pen a Textile Business in Indonesia and Go to Town' was read on that pro­gram a feu! nights ago." A four-column newspaper head­line on August 20 said: "United States m a y abandon Nuclear Tests." Well, that's what Krush­chev has been demanding t hat we do a!! along. Air Force Colonel Is An Hour late And A Dollar Short We had thought that we were absolutely immune to shock over anything that came out of the mad­house known as Washington, D. C., but we must admit that a new pro­posal emanating from the nation's capital on August 21 gave us quite a turn. An Air Force medica! doctor con­tributed his bit to the gayety of nations by suggesting that if nu­clear war comes and mass hysteria results, everything can quickly be brought under control by "mass hypnosis" of the people which, if it does not make them love being bombed, will quiet their nerves and enable them to go serenely about their business. The Air Force physician who of­fered this bright suggestion, by the way, is Colonel D. D. Todorovic, a good old pioneer American name if we ever heard one. The Colonel said that psychiatrist treatments in such cases were fine but entirely too slow in an emer­gency. The only way to get the job done was by hypnotizing people in large groups, he insisted. His findings were actually published in the Military Medicine journal. Of course, being with ~the Air Force which is modern in the ex­treme, the Colonel is supposed to be abreast of the times but we wish to remind him that he is all out of date and has llQt kept up with what is going on. The American people, to a large extent, have been hypnotized for twenty-five years through continu­ous brainwashing and foreign prop­aganda. O.therwise they would not toler­ate any such fantastic suggestion from a representative of an agency of government and would take a pot-shot at the proponent of such an idiotic course. Backed against the wall by the blunders of his administration a nd in a pitiable attempt to retrieve the Negro vote for his increasingly un­popular Political Party, the Presi­dent has resorted to threats to force the people of the South to comply with the Supreme Court's un-Con­stitutional ruling on the mixing of the races in public schools. At his recent press conference, the President made it clear that troops will again be sent to Little Rock and that the people of that sovereign State will be forced at bayonet point to submit to a mea­sure of indignity which is unthink~ able to self-respecting j:itizens of a free Republic. In the President's philosophy the Tenth Amendment to the Constitu­tion of the United States - which plainly gives to the States the right to manage their own schools with­out interference from the Federal government- simply does not ex­ist and NKVD and GESTAPO meth­ods will be applied to those who cling to any hope for protection un­der that basic section of our funda­mentallaw. With Constitutional Government having totally collapsed at the top level, there are black days ahead for the people of the South whose forbe~rers also felt the sharp thrust of the bayonet, had their pride trampled in the dust and suffe l'ed agony of spirit and soul under the ruthless tyranny of depraved car­petbaggers but who never gave up nor surrendered their way of life. Unless the strong fabric of South­ern character has been materially weakened by the terrific pressure of Communist propaganda which has drenched the nation. they will stand firm and unafraid in the pres­ent threat to their freedom and r ight of self-determination. Political Goons Are Naturally Going To Stand By Labor Goons As was to be expected no b ill restra ining labor unions from cor­rupt practices was passed by the Congress which has just adjourned. Not that it makes any difference for both the measures proposed by Modern Republicans and Fair Deal Democrats were not worth the pa­per they were written on. Members of both Houses could have better spent the time and ef­fort they devoted to the ·matter in reading the funny papers. Both bills were intended merely to prevent labor union gangsters killing and robbing each other and there was no provision whatever for protection of the public from these goons. The truth of the matter is - let's face it - that it is not possible for any mea sure which organized labor opposes to be passed by the Congress as presently cons tituted. The reason for this is because Walter Reuther owns enough mem­ber s in both Houses, body and soul, to block a ny such legislation. The reason he owns them is be-cause he has bought and paid for them by sending mill ions of dol­lars into their districts at election t ime just as he did in the recent Senatorial campaign in Texas. As the investigation by a sub­committee of the Senate disclosed, labor union leadership is rotten to the core and there is not a thing anybody can do about it so long as we send men of the same caliber to represent us in the Ha11s of Con­gress. One of the labor bills passed the Senate but when it got to the House Sam Rayburn sat on it for forty days after reportedly conferring with Walter Reuther and oresum­ably getting his orders to -kill it. So the Senate's Labor Rackets Comn:ittee which investigated part of UniOn Labor and turned up ex- ~?t~~~~.is~~~:~ie:S~~s~~~u!~~s, ~:~:; o.t~er !YPe ?f criminal as bein~ iden­t tfted m umon opera.tions, didn't get a nywhere. All the money and effort they spent in the investigation was wasted. n lt J­: 1, :o lg IS fe_ptember, 1958 THE SOUTHER CONSERVATIVE Moscow's Racial Program For South Is Upheld By U.S. Appeals Court rand of "Statesmanship" That Is Putting Our Mines Out of Business If the American people have learned only one thing in the past quarter century, it is that the Com­munists never give up once they have set out to attain an objective. This was forceful1y brought home to us in the action of the Eight U. s. CirCUit Court of Appeals which re­versed the ruling of Judge Harry J. Lemley of Hope, Arkansas, who had temporary suspended, by judic­ial decree, integration of the High School in Little Rock. Judge Lemley's decision had held out hope to the people of the South and the Nation that there would be a period in which level-headed Am­ericans could unite on some method of thwarting Communist influence in the Courts which threatens to end Constitutional Government in ~~:r~~~~dt~!3f~~{~o~~ ~~~-i~~s~~ meantime, the complexion of the Courts might change and men with regard for the Constitution and be­lief in American principles of gov­ernment might be substituted for them. But the powerful forces of Inter­national Communism who are di­recting the mongrelization program all over the world also foresaw the possibility of a return to sanity on the part of the American people if a cooling-off period were granted in which to assay the irremed-iable damage to the White race which would ensue under the High Courts' continued pro-Communist decis­ions, and pressure to offset Judge Lemley's wise ruling was brought to bear. The result was the setting aside of this ruling by an Appeals Court sitting in St. Louis where the hor­rors of integrated public schools, in spite of attempts to suppress them, are often exposed when informa­tion spills out to the public press. Among the seven members of the f\poeals Court which rendered the unfortunate decision which means further trouble. riots and perhaps bloodshed in the unhappy city of Little Rock, was one American Jurist who had the courage to dis­sent from the Court's political!y dic­tated decision. ' His name is Judge Archibald K. Gardner of Huron, South Dakota, and decent people of both races all over the nation are indebted to him for his brave attempts to forestall the tragic incidents which the fu­ture holds in store as a result of Moscow's racial program for the South. Later the Court granted a stay of its previous order and gave the Little Rock School Board thirty days in which to make a final ap­peal to the Supreme Court of the United States. Since such step, however, is as futile as appealing to the Politburo, the matter is not settled and riot­. g and strife in Little Rock is mere­postponed. A leading woman Communi.~t, airman of the Party in South­ern California, declared on a tele­vision interview that the Supreme Court had given the Communist Party its happiest hour and great­est triumph. Eleanor Roosevelt Is Reds Will Clamor To Off To The Wars Again Make Hawaii A State There are many in this country who consider Eleanor Roosevelt a harmless creature who stumbles from one activity into another with­out having the foggiest idea of what she is doing, but they are only partly right. There's a lot of life in the lady yet and she has a spate of weasel­brained foiiowers whose capacity for damage to Constitutional Gov­ernment should not be under-esti­mated. This following is accounted for by the fact that it is always easier to follow a leader, no matter how empty-headed, than to think for one's self, and Mrs. Rt>osevelt's fans are of a type who would have to take ~n an~sthetic before they could give birth to an original thought. And they are legion. And so it is, that when this un­daunted and unterrified evangel of State Socialism embarks on anoth­er venture, orthodox Americans shudder. Her latest devise for "educating" th_e populace concerning the doc­tnnes of her cult, is something call­ed The National Council for Indus­trial Peace which is engaging in an extensive campaign to defeat pro­posed right-to-work legislation in such States as have not already adopted it. In her book the right of an American citizen to earn a living without paying tribute to Walter Reuther is an infringement on human liberty and a denial of Union Labor's prerogative of con­trolling the Federal government. Mrs. Roosevelt's capacity for harm to good government would be greatly minimized if she did not invariably asociate herself with smarter and more sinister and dan­gerous characters who are experts in directing movements having for their obiective the setting up of a totalitarian form of government which she hopes eventually to see installed in the United States. Ex-Senator Herbert H. Lehman of New York is her co-sponsor and fellow-traveller in the new ore:anl­zation. What was designated as a speedy Bomarc Air Defense interceptor missile was launched in Cape Can­averal, Florida, recently. Accord­ing to newspaper accounts the missile was successfully launched but missed its target. It is sort of like the old saying that "the oper­ation was a succeu but the patient died." From. a prominent Washington, D. C., lady: "I certainly admire your rare gift for writing and thoroughly enjoy your publication. Knowing that there is an intelli­gent, forceful medium like yours putting the freaks and subversive elements in their place, makes people feel better." Because the last session of Con­gresss made the grave mistake of accepting Alaska into the Union of American States, there will be a clamor on the part of Liberals for the inclusion of Hawaii at the next session. Most Americans visualize Ha­waii as the Paradise of the Pacific where the hours are whiled away with strumming guitars playing Aloha, Song of the Islands and oth­er beautiful melodies and where Hula Hula girls entrance visitors with their exotic dancing. 1 That is Hawaii as it used to be but is not any more. In the mean­time a vile beast in the person of Harry Bridges has invaded the is­land and Hawaii is now a labor union Mecca and Communism has been installed as a way of life. For every American in Hawaii, there are ten Asiatics who have no conception of American ideals or principles and who are as variable in their loyalties as are the trade winds whiCh blow across the blue Pacific. Maybe it will not do any good but, just for the record and to main­tain your own self-respect, write your Congressman before the next session convenes and tell him that you are unalterably opposed to bringing a polyglot race into the United States as a member of the American Union. Michigan Farmer Battles Soviet Policies Here We are always proud and appre­ciative of our subscribers but es­pecially so of a new one - Mr. Stanley Yankus of Dowagiac, Mich­igan. We admire Mr. Yankus extrav­agantly for daring to challenge the right of Washington bureaucrats to tell him how much wheat he could plant and for continuing to defy them after they had even gone in to his home town and garnisheed his bank account. Proceeding on the theory that we don't have Soviet policies in this country yet, Mr. Yankus is fighting to the last ditch against Washington tyranny and we hope for him, and all similar patriots, complete victory in the end. Referring to Mr. Yankus' battle against the infringement of human liberty, the Wall Street Journal said in part "The country, so far as one may judge, seems to have accepted the philosophy that a citizen may sow only as Washington will let him reap. So surely he has no reason to be surprised to find government agents inquiring among his neigh­bors and government prosecutors hauling him into court. It is a form­idable wind-milt at which Mr. Yan­kus tilts . , . And yet . . . What more fonnidable a foe can there be for the little tyrannies of dis­tant government than a few Quoxi­tic men who dump tea into a har~ bor or stubbornly plant a few un­lawful bushels of wheat''? Thoughtful Americans who are depressed at the deteriorating State of the Union and can't understand what is bringing it about are asked to consider this brand of "states­man ship" as practiced by the ad­ministration. The President demanded that the Trade Agreements Act be extended by the last session of Congress and spineless members of both Houses responded by granting his request in the face of evidence that the Act was rapidly destroying American industry and building up that abroad. Under that legislation, American mines h~ve been practically put out of existence by foreign im­ports which was the purpose of the Act in the first place. Under it, the President is auth­orized to order changes in tariffs when it is proved that American industries cannot survive under heavy imports in comoetition with their products, but almost invari­ably he refuses to take advantage of this provision and just lets such Industries tough it out or go out of business. In the case of the mines, instead of standing firmly back of the American Free Enterprise system, sl":lpping a heavy duty on foreign mmerals and allowing the mine owners to operate under it to the benefit of themselves and their em­ployes, the President had another idea. His prooosal was to Sod.a\ize the industry by granti.ng it a g.overn­ment subsidy to make up the losses suffered by foreign comoetition. For once, members of Congress acted with horse sense and concern for the peoole of their own coun­try and killed this proposal dead as a door nail. They voted down the subsidy by a heavy majority. An ironical twist to the whole thing was that the President had induced many Western senators to go along with him and vote for the extension of the Trade Agree­ments Act with the understanding r­that he would come to their rescue by recommending a subsidy for the mines. Now the Western senators who voted for the extension are right behind the 8-ball and it serves them right. Government by horse-trading methods is a sorry substitute for statesmanship and we hope that when they are at home during re­cess their constituents who are de­pendent on the mining industry give them a verbal thrashing, and put out a candidate to oppose them when they come up for re-election. One of the most sickening things about the trouble in Little Rock and other places is the manner in which trouble in connection with integration is written up by brain­washed reporters who speak ten­derly of Negroes and refer to in­volved white persons as if they ... were man-eating tigers. Another disgusting thing is their constant reference to the young black men and women who want to enter white schools as uchildren." Neg­roes mature years before white people and in many cases, the .... "children" so touchingly referred to may have children of their own. Pogo I THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1958 Almost Anybody Can Commit This Country To Anything We make the claim without fear of successful contradiction that the American Constitution has been so repeatedly violated and usurpation of authority so universally prac· ticed by the representatives of the three branches of government, that we now live in a virtual state of anarchy. Respect for Constitution· al Government is all but non-exis­tent. There are instances too numer­ous to count in proof of this charge but we are thinking now of a cute little stroke of the pen by the Sec­retary of State recently which binds the American people to the Bagh­dad Pact although not one person in ten thousand knows ..,what the Baghdad Pact is, or cares for that matter. It was orics:inally an agree­ment for "mutual security" enter~ ed into by Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, - Iraq and Britain. When the Com­munists murdered IraQ's King Fai­s~ l sometime ago and. took over his country, Iraq dropped out of the Pact, or at lea$t its representa­tives did not attend the recent meet­ing of representatives of the Pact In London. But a representative from the United States was there with bells on even though we are not mem­bers of the Pact and have no earth­ly business mixing in it. John Fos­ter Dulles was there to "speak" for the American people and since .he cannot resist signing treaties, pacts and agreements with foreigners any more than he can overcome the temptation to hop on any plane whose rnO~or•is revved up, he sign­ed on the dotted line. He had had a couple of teleohone communica­tions with Eisenhower in the mean­time and whether the President knew what Dulles was talking about or not, he told him to go ahead and sign. The whole procedure of course was Unconstitutional, and tli.ere­fore illegal, but who is going to raise a hand to protest the right of a hired hand in a government agency to commit us to the sup­port of far-off countries and even to war in their behalf? Certainly not Congress which has transferred practically all its Constitutional powers to any one who happens along and expresses a willingness to assume them. The Constitution says plainly that treaties may be made by the President "by and with the consent ot the Senate" and it does not even mention a Secretary of State. Anarchy is defined as "the state of society where there is no law or supreme power; a state of political disorder." If we've come to the point where anybody can commit us to any­thing without even mentioning the matter to our duly elected repre­sentatives in Congress, that cer­tainly is "disorder" and proves that we have no "law" and that the Constitution Is no longer the "su­preme power". Call it what you will, but that's anarchy. The Methodist A'l,nual Confer­ence of Oregon passed a resolu~ tion at its recent session favoring the admission of Red China to the United Nations by an overwhelm­ing vote. The Quickest Way To Get Results That the most sensitive nerve in the human anatomy is the one lead­ing to the pocket-book has been demonstrated again recently by group action in a matter involving principle. When the United Nations Review reported last June that United Air Lines had painted the U.N. em­blem on all its planes, hundreds of patriotic Americans started writ­ing letters to the company. They didn't argue or try to con­vince United that it was wrong to display the emblem of this subver­sive One-World organization. They merely stated that they would not ride planes which car­ried the U.N. emblem and they meant it. That did it. The despicable thing was removed and now the United Air Lines ranks as an American en­terprise once more. It is understood that the blunder of placing the spider web emblem on United Airlines in the first place is due to one Captain Charles R. Dent, United Air Lines pilot, who developed a One-World complex and became possessed of the idea that the United Nations was the answer to world peace. The Airline adopted the emblem but abandoned it when a nation-wide protest was registered. We haVe always oled with mem­bers of churches whose minister is involved with the National Council of Churches to employ the same method and when, and if, they adopt this policy, they will get re­sults. If the big contributors to various Protestant churches which are af­filiated with NCC will make it known in no uncertain terms that they will not give one thin dime to the church so long as it remains in this One-World Marxist organiza­tion, the Council will disintegrate fast. Money talks and the ears of Ministers, no less than ordinary mortals, are attuned to its message. We Send Millions To Jack Up Nehru's Industry As a builder of morale, let us consider a fine gesture and hu­manitarian act on the part of our generous leaders in Washington during July. At that time we sent to dear Mr. Nehru in New Delhi, India, the tidy little sum of $55,000,000.00 for the purpose of jacking up Indian in­dustry. For the record, this was called a "loan" but who wants to bet that a thin dime of it will ever be paid back. We just don't operate that way. "Forget it - Think nothing of it" is our motto. If there are people on Mars and they can observe us through some sort of aerial peephole, they must surely get the idea that from the way we fling money around we have a surplus of $280,000,000,- 000.00 in the Federal Treasury in- Policy of Prosperity Through Scarcity Is Revived In California We Shoot at the Moon But Miss the Target One of the greatest delicacies on the American breakfast table is the cantaloupe and this is true in Cali~ fornia as in all other American States.

Our First Real Vacation In Almost Nine Years Through the generosity and hos­pitality of a wonderful friend, we have just enjoye"d the first real vacation we have had since the paper was started nine years ago. For two weeks we were a guest in the lovely summer home of our hostess in the beautiful lake and woods section of Northern Mich­igan where we were entertflined royally. This included a trip to Canada, Mackinac Island and boat rides on three of the Great Lakes - Su­perior, Huron and Michigan to say nothing of the many social cour­tesies accorded us not particularly out of tribute to us but to our popular hostess whose friends are legion among the fine Americans who maintain summer homes in the beautiful resort cities of that area. For a brief time we experienced again - in contrast to our hard­working existence now - a type of gracious living which we had almost forgotten. The only drawback to it all was that after all the luxury and beauty, it was hard to get "back to the salt mines'' and start worryin~ again about the State of the Union.
