Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Pleod for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 12 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JULY-AUGUST, 1961 No. 7-8 S~NISTER FACTORS WHICH CONTRIBUTE TO DEMORALIZATION OF AMERICAN LAWMAKERS Supreme Court Decides In Favor Of The Enemies Of Christianity The American people have become used to the Supreme Court striking down the Constitution in so many cases that it has practically lost all shock value but when the Court handed down a ruling recently striking a blow at Christianity itself, there were reverberations through· out the country. Since the United States is a Christian nation whose institutions are based on Christian Principles, all Federal and State officials have been naturally required to eKpress a belief in God when taking the oath of office. Now the Supreme Court has delivered a ruling which holds that It fs Un-Constitutional for the Federal government, or any State govern­ment to require a "belief in the existence of God" as a qualification for public office. This lethal blow to basic Christian policy to which this nation has adhered since the beginning of the Republic is believed to be the cul· ruination of the fight against Christianity which has been conducted with relentless vigor for many years by anti-Christian forces in the United States and throughout the world and to the example of the God· less United Nations where any recognition of God was banned from the beginning. It this highhanded attempt to discredit Christianity in the conduct ot the various units of the American government and give sanctuary to Atheism and Godless Communism does not bring charges of im· peachment against the justices on the Court who are guilty of this out­rage then we have abandoned all pretense of honor and integrity and as a nation have sunk to the moral and spiritual level of the Soviet Republic and its satellites behind the Iron Curtain. By The Way Did Anybody Ever Find Out Who Promoted Peress? The great stir about the "leak" of military secrets out of the Penta .. gon and the President's action in calling on the FBI to make an investi· gation, leads back like every other treasonable act that is happening now, to Senator Joseph R. McCarthy and to his futile attempts to get these "leaks" stopped up many years ago. If our continued references back to McCarthy seem like editorial nagging-all right that's just exactly what it is and we intend to keep on nagging and throwing him in the faces of those who crucified him every time some prediction which he made concerning the traitors who were operating within the government and the Army is fulfilled. We watched in agony during the entire proceedings of the McCarthy hearings when little cheap, twO-bit Washington polit:: ians conspired to thwart him at every turn and to prevent him from making public the Information concerning subversion in vital agencies which is coming to light at this late date. Surely no person with a memory an inch long has forgotten how he tried to bring out that the Reds in the Pentagon and in the State Department were doing everything within their power to aid Communism and help to spread it throughout this country and the world. His fearlessness in this connection was one of the reasons why he and his lovely wife failed to receive invitations to shoddy White House receptions where no color line was drawn but the door was barred against a patriot whose concern in the safety and security of his coun· try cost him his life. Well may President Kennedy be concerned about "leaks" in the Pentagon which of course are partly responsible for the Soviet's pro· gress in the nuclear weapon field, but the responsibility for tpis shame­ful condition should be placed where it belongs and that is on the officials of the administration which was in power during the McCarthy hearings and who were not so much concerned in protecting our internal security as they were . in discrediting the Senator from Wisconsin. During the upcoming investigation of the Pentagon by FBI perhaps they may accidentally find out who promoted Peress. There was so much favorable reaction to our front page edi· torial last month titled "What Became of Great Statesmen who Once Served in the United States Senate?" that we have decided to elaborate on the subject a bit and try to point out some of the factors which Impel these specimens of the humon race to perform as they do. The nomes used in the following editorial are fictitious to protect the identity of the guilty but the facts are attested by the almost $300,. 000,000,000.00 Indebtedness of the United States: the lost prestige of our Republic among other nations of the world; the copious stream of borrowed dollars which continues to flow into the coffers of foreign foes and friends alike; the contempt In which the American Constitution is held by our notional leaders; the Marxist legislation which emerges in in· creasing volume from each session of Congress and the van• ishing American freedoms and diminishing rights of the peo· pie, of property and of the States that provided the solid cornerstone on which our Constitutional Government rested. There are many sinister elements which operate in the cases ot comparatively honest, capable and sound-thinking Americans who hap­pen to get elected to Congress hut who once the are- \n Washington, are transformed from solid, reputable and trustworthy representatives of the people into cringing and subordinate stooges of slick party chief .. tains in both Houses who lead them around like a prize bull with a ring in its nose. In attempting to point out some of the factors which contribute to their disintegration, let us take the imaginary case histories, for ex .. ample, of two outstanding leaders of the Senate-the Honorable I. Will Steele, Republican, who hails from the town of Mudpuddle in the corn belt of the Middle West and the Honorable Canby Hadd, Democrat, a na• live of Hogwallow in the Bible belt of the Deep South. Through a quirk of the American electorate--whose strange moti· vations are known only to God-these two candidates on the same November day found themselves elected to membership in the highest lawmaking body in the land-the Senate of the United States. Neither man had any particular qualifications for the job but, on the other hand, there are no cut and dried rules by which an untried contender for the office can be judged. Therefore, there was no reason to anticipate that either or both of them would not respect the solemn promises they made on the stump or that they would not represent the best interests of their States and of the nation to the fullest extent of their ability. As In ail similar cases, there was nOthing in their background, en .. vlronment or record to foretell that one day they would emerge as full-fledged political confidence men and as powerful leaders of the big­gest gang of legally organized thieves ever to operate outside the un ... derworld. There was no hint that the day would come when, by their in­fluence and concurring votes, they would be largely responsi ble for the passage of House tax bills which rob American citizens deaf, dumb and blind and which financially mutilate and denude their victims and leave them with only their shirt-tails flapping in the wind. There was no possible way to look ahead and visualize these two public servants voting away the God-given freedoms of the people; stipulating by law who an employer should hire or fire; deciding how many hours a man should work and his pay therefor; authorizing the Federal government to latch onto a laborer's wage before it ever reached the hand of the earner; denying the citizen the right to run his social affairs or to associate with persons of his choice; knocking down the rights of the States like ten pins in a bowling alley; confiscating the (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think it - The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE July-Augu•l, 1961 1 'Ambassador of Spending' Reports Successful Trip To Latin America ~ Adlai Stevenson ·returned from earth except our own and the Devil a· tour of Latin America and an~ can take it. nounced that his trip was highly Mr. Stevenson also brought successful. back the information that our Latin I In this cpnn.ection, he was pro~~ ~~~~~~end nf~g~~~r~~~~~ R~~tf!i~ ably speakmg m behalf of the Latm and that they don't want Castro ~mencan people to whom _he prom- interfered with in any way. 1~ed $~0,000,000 of ..

SINISTER FACTORs-property of the citizen and · appropriating his money and scattering it ]ike confetti among beggar nations of the world; and above all, ripping the Constitution to shreds and swapping a Constitutional Republic for a Welfare State in which the citizen is denied the dignity of providing for his own security and that of his family. ~ And so the Honorable I. Will Steele and the Honorable Canby Hadd I went to Washington where levelling~off and downgrading factors would beRin to operate and process them and eventually mold them into the uniform type of lawmaker who now writes the statutes under which honest, decent and respectable Americans must live and conduct their business and try to make a living. Perhaps the most devastating and demoralizing experience of the two embryo solons came with the sudden plunge from comparative and ~enteel poverty into surroundings of such luxurious appointments as would have bewildered and overpowered the emperors of ancient Rome or the Oriental potentates of the mysterious East. Thick wall~to~wall car~ pets on their office floors, for instance, where they sank up to their shins in velvet when the softest material on which either had ever trod back home were a Sears~ Roebuck rug in the living room and battleship linoleum on the kitchen floor. Perhaps it was at that moment that they first began to have delusiOns of grandeur and to become imbued with the conviction that money grew on trees. Special elevators for the use of senators whisked them from floor to floor with lightning rapidity and tempted them to take frequent rides in the gadgets whether they were going anywhere or not and their fascination was unbounded for the little fancy trains which whizzed them from one building to another even if it were only a hundred yards away and whose extensive use is claimed to have caused the legs of many Washington legislators, like their brains, to have become vestigial organs. · Next was the impact of their fabulous salaries which, added to hidden emoluments and fringe benefits, including all they could get away with through padded expense accounts on committee assignments to foreign countries, amounted to a king's ransom when compared to the eight or ten thousand bucks per annum they were able to haul down when depending on their own limited talents, ability and resources in trying to make a living back home. I Big~money talk is also a prime di,straction which :attles the brains of simple boys from the sticks and sends them into a tailspin from which they never quite emerge during their tenure of office. How to give away billions of dollars of other peoples' money and to apportion it equally among the vast army of foreign politiCal crooks who perpetually have their hand out is a daily subject of luncheon table conversation and any man who mentions less than a million dollars stamps himself as a new~ comer since such paltry amounts are regarded as peanuts and useful only aS pocket change. Scores of million-dollar lobbies, principally representing educa~ tiona!, labor and church council groups, who are out to shape the eco­nomic and social policies in a New World Order, are prepared to render service to the newly-elected solons by making up their minds for them as to how they should vote on major issues thereby relieving them of the responsibility of thinking for themselves and releasing them for more urgent duties such as delivering public lectures for pay. An institution which indirectly influences the behavior of a new lawmaker suddenly projected into wh~t is loosely called Washington society is the cocktail party which, like Tennyson's brook, goes on "for­. ever and the old boys whose wildest indulgence back home consisted of Hitherto Unheard-Of Country Breaks Out On Front Pages The first most Americans, includ~ annex Kuwait, it seems, including ing us, ever heard of "Kuwait," the three million per day and this a few miles of territory between led to the trouble.

No country these days Is worth its salt if it does not have an "emergency" every thirty days or so. Kuwait only has a ct>uple of hun~ dred thousand persons in its bor­ders but it has an income from oil of $3,000,000 per day which is enough to set off an "emergency" in anybody's book. Iraq's smart Premier decided to (Continued from Page 1 ) Since they are financially better off than we are, they probably would not accept any foreign aid as a sympathetic gesture but may­be we could slip them a brace of Youth Corpsmen just to show them our heart is in the right place. The tragic thing about the Unit­ed States being $300,000,000,000.00 in the red is that so much of this money has gone into the promo­tion of RED causes. sneaking an occasional slug of Bourbon, with branch water for a chaser, soon learn to bend an elbow with the best of the cocktail circuit riders. At these social rat races are to be found swarms of a little pub­licized but highly potent breed of friendly persuaders in the matter of influencing a freshman lawmaker's future official conduct. These are the unpaid feminine lobbyists who are usually the attractive wife or girl friend of agency bureaucrats who are eternally on the make for more money for their departments. So they sick these slick broads on a par­ticular new lawmaker and they take out after him like a hound dog treeing a coon. The hot line they hand their victims nearly always works because it has to do with what a sensation he has created during the short time he has been in the nation's capital and what a bright future awaits him pFovided he follows the right advice and plays along with the right crowd. Confidential tips on "who's who" in Washington are slipped to him which he swallows whole. When, after three highballs she finally cuts loose and starts really telling him what a great man he is, she finds it duck soup to sell the old goat on the idea. After a few doses of this pap, strategically administered as to time and place, his sneaking suspicion that he is a hot~shot who knows all the answers, develops into a definite conviction which nothing short of an earthquake is ever able to shake. But the most powerful and lethal instruments of all for taking the raw material as represented by a rookie lawmaker and transforming him into a finished Marxist product are the hordes of political economists and social scientists who, regardless of what administration is in pow­er, hole up in the White House and in government agencies like rats in a corn bin. Individually they get in their dirty work on their victims in per­sonal conversations at social gatherings, through the distribution of innumerable tracts presenting the liberal side of every social and ec­onomic subject on earth and through discussions at conferences which take place around the clock. But, collectively, they run a perennial prop­aganda mill in Washington which constitutes a sort of Political Crime School for instructing members of Congress in the art of peacefully blowing up the American government, wrecking the Constitution and committing mass robbery of the people, all in the name of social reform. After completing the prescribed course, the Honorable I Will Steele and the honorable Canby Hadd graduate cum laude from this Political Crime School and thereafter reflect eternal glory on their alma mater by going forth as fluent advocates of Social Security from the Cradle to the Grave; Public Ownership of Power and Light; Federal Aid to Educa­tion; Medical Care for the Aged; unrestricted Foreign Competition with American Industry; repeal of the Connally Amendment; repeal of all State Right~to~Work laws; abolishment of Poverty, Ignorance and Dis­ease in all nations of the world and, finally, the total surrender of American Sovereignty to the United Nations. By this time their outstanding qualities as progressive American statesmen and their undisputed capacity as potential world leaders has been so impressed on the public mind by liberal newspapers and left· wing columnists that the national chairmen of their respective political parties begin to lay plans to secure their nomination as the two major candidates for President of the United States. And thus are good plain old country boys who otherwise would have made fair small~town lawyers, accountarits or justices of the peace, caught up in the vortex of politics, whisked to Washington and put through the Marxist mill where all honest conviction, respect for the Constitution and loyalty to their own country is squeezed out of them and they are then deemed ready to be catapulted to national and world leadership . July-August, 1961 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Pogo l We Don't Have To Worry Any More Urban Renewal Is A Communist Scheme About federal Control Of Schools To Confiscate All Private Property "Urban Renewal is the greatest It now appears that disturbed Americans can quit worrying a­bout the Federal government tak­ing over the nation's educational system which has been a major threat for many years. Yes, they can relax and take it easy. UNESCO is planning to take it over instea~. When it became evident recent­ly that the bills in Congress author­izing Federal Aid to Education­and thereby assuring that Wash­ington would take over the na­tion's class rooms-were meeting with such widespread opposition that there was serious doubt of passa~e. One-Worlders transferred their fraOtic efforts toward getting the UNESCO Treaty called "Con­vention Against Discrimination in Education" ratified by the Unit­ed States Senate. Such ratification will mean a short-cut to victory any way for the National Education Associa­tion oropagandists and other One­World Socialists whose ultimate plans called for UNESCO to be the final recipient of the nation's edu­cational system. It was just to be transt~rred to the Federal govern­ment first but now that won't be necess!'l.ry. The Red educators will do it the hard way by cutting out the middleman in the form of the Health, Education and Welfare De­partment which had hoped to have a whack at the job of running the nation's schools before they were turned over to world supervision. The American people are in­debted to Florence Fowler Lyons of California for doing a magnifi­cent job of research on the subject and pointing up the forces who are behind UNESCO in its fight for the school systems not only of the United States but for those of all nations of the world. The Treaty which is now before the United States Senate for rati~ fication was written by delegates from the Communist countries of Bulgaria, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Bylorussian So~ viet Socialist Republic, Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Reoublic and the Union of Soviet Nationalist Repub~ lies, Miss Fowler has revealed. Two different versions of the Treaty have been submitted to the Senate and of this clever ruse to remove education from domestic control and deliver it into the inter~ national UNESCO jurisdiction, Miss Fowler says: "The diabolical­ly clever UNESCO Communists and the Soviet agents and pinkos In the State Department have pro­vided a neat trap for the U.S. Sen­ate . . . They have drafted two Identical documents; one they la­bel 'Convention Against Discrimi~ nation in Education' and the other fs c all e d 'RecommenOations Against Discrimination in Educa~ tion.' The end effect will be Identi­cal with the ratification of either version . • . In other words the trick is to get one version or the other approved ... and then rely on the World Court (which is writ· ten Into both) to make the decision at the proper moment that the United States, by its approval of the 'Recommendation' Is as legally ~~#g~~~d ~!e~ ~~~i;~~~~ention' it- former Governor of Texas ~~~;eract:d.~u~a;~o~~~yMw~o~~:~ On March 20, 1957 when the Enjoying 'Sweet Revenge' ~~~~~7:.n~ri~~~~n~~:t isw:~~::,m~: matter of appropriating $491,800 to finance the investigation and screening of United States citizens for employment i,n international organizations, was before Con~ gress, the Hon. H. R. Gross of Iowa, made the following state4 ments which were printed in the Congressional Record of that date: "In the November i956 is­sue of the United Nations Edu­cational, Scientific, and Cul­tural Organization's publica­tion, entitled 'UNESCO Chron· icle,' there is an interesting b~t of information under the head­ing of staff appointments. I am quoting now from this pub­lication: 'Mrs. A. Jegalova (Union of Soviet Socialist Repub­lics), who was formerly Chief of the Inspection Di­vision in the Soviet Minis~ try of Education and more recently Chief of the Divis­ion of International Litera­ture in the Publishing House of Foreign Literature, Mos­cow, has been appointed Chief of the Secondary Ed· ucation Division (of UNES­CO.") 'In considering the im­plications of a Communist occupying such an import­ant position, bear in · d that UNESCO is the organi­zation which has referred in its "educational" publi­cations to children "breath­ing the poisoned air of na­tionalism," and has called for children to be educated "to prepare themselves for citizens!lip in a world so~. ciety." "Then in the December 1956 Issue of UNESCO Chronicle there is the following: 'UNESCO gave financial and technical assistance to the Yugoslav (Communist) National Commission for the organization of an inter­national seminar on the e c o n o m i c education of workers.' "Among the countries reP:. resented at the semina): was Red China. "The United States each year pays almost one-third of UNESCO's operating costs, and the above-quoted items are submitted as examples of who and what we sapport with American taxpayers' dol­lars. uHere we are spending a half million dollars to investi­gate United States citizens who seek employment in in~ temational organizations, in~ eluding the United Nations and UNESCO, and yet, sitting over those people In UNESCO Is a Communist from Moscow, Russia. How stupid can we get?" Any way, we can stop worry .. lng about Washington taking ov­er our schools and educational in­stitutions. UNESCO Is ready to relieve us of that worry. In Texas people are still talking about the election of John Tower to the United States Senate in the recent election. To most Texans, Mr. Tower's victory in a formerly solid Democratic State is little short of a miracle. And of course there are many post-mortems discussing the whys and whereforrs. Credit for much of the success of the Wichita Falls educator is given to effective, but quieL work on the part of the for­mer governor of Texas, Coke Stev­enson. Mr. Stevenson took no con­spicu~: ms part in the campaign but is saiO to have invoked his still formidable support in behalf of the Republican candlate. For those who have forgotten the story, Governor Stevenson emerged from the election in 1948 as victor in the race for the Sen­ate and was so proclaimed in the press. But several days after the ballot boxes had been closed, 87 Mexi­can votes were brought forth after which Mr. Lyndon Johnson was announced as the new senator from the I.une Star State. That all the Mexicans involved were dead and buried and had been for years, was beside the point. After aU, no Jess a personage than the Honorable Hugo Black of the Supreme Court of the Unit­ed Stlltes, and who was sitting alone on the Court during the va­catiOn period, ruled that John!jon was the winner, thus nullifying an earlier order of a Federal judge. in Texas, Whitfield Davidson, who had decided in favor of Stevenson as being the selection of a majority of the "live" voters of the State. A sidelight on the affair, as an­nounced in the press at the time, was that Harry Truman was in the State and talked personally on the telephone to Hugo Black shortly before Black overruled Judge Da­vidson. At any rate, former govery,.'Or Coke Stevenson is said to be wear­Ing a smug smile of content these days and to feel that he has hhd sweet revenge at long last. 11 • It is reported that the Democrat­Ic party is so split in Congress that the aid to education bill is endan­gered. We hope it splits right doWn the middle every . time any other such Socialistic legislation comes up for consideration. Now that legislation has been passed by Congress enabling men to retire at 62 instead of 65, we are led to hope that the day is not far distant when nobody will have to work and everybody will live off of the Federal government.

Our Consti· tution guarantees us the right to own private property but these planners are out to destroy that sacred right. Through Slum Clear­ance, Public Housing, FHA and other Communistic programs, the Federal government now owns over 40 per cent of the· land in the United States and is rapidly acquir· ing more. It not halted, it will own ALL the land and we will be mere .. ly government slaves as in Russia. "Headquarters of Urban Renew .. al sharks is located at 1313 East 60th Street, Chicago, Illinois. This organization has a branch in every city. It is called 'Metro' which is short for Metropolitan. "The following is a list of the organizations operating for Metro: American Public Works Associa~ tion; Municipal Finance Officers· Public Personnel Association; At: torneys General; Governors Confer·· ence; International Managers As~ sociation and International Munic­ipal Cooperation; Council of State Governments; American Municioal Association; American Public We\ ~ fare Association: Interstate Clear­ing House for Mental Health: Public Administration Services; Confer- ~~~ret~r o7h~~b~~s~c;~in'(s~r~rt~~; NatiOnal Institute of Munici pal Clerks; American Society of Plan­ning Directors; National Associa­t~ on of Assessing Officers; Federa-i~~~ al0fst!~ :U~~~~!~~~at~fjic~~; National Association of Housing and Development a nd Legislative Conference. "The policy of Metro is to get agents who have been trained un­der them appointed as city man­ag~ rs. These managers then ap~ pomt other graduates of 1313 to positions until they have comolete control of city government. They pretend to work in the interests of efficiency but what they really do is usurp the powers of the e l ector~ ate. Like termites, they gnaw and destroy. "The Bible says: 'Woe unto him who taketh violently a house which he did not build.' Write to your sen­ators and congressmen and protest this legalized robbery." One of the greatest dangers threatening the American people is the fact that we have leaders in high ~>laces who actually think that the Soviet Union is observing the ''gentlemen's agreement" on nu­clear testing and that the test has been abandoned in that country as it has in the United States. Any one who understands the Commu­nists' lack of morals knows that they have done no such thing and that testing of their weapons has never stopped. Some day we will find this out but, for the present, our leaders prefer to shut their eyes and pretend the agreement is being kept, Pege 4 The Southern Conservative 'A MONTHLY PUBLICATION OF EDITORIAL OPINION WITH NATIONAL CIRCULATION IDA M.

THE· SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Negro Thugs Attack White Gathering At Kansas City With Baseball Bats In Kansas City some hundred persons were calmly watching a teen-age baseball game on Friday, June 30th in a public park, accord­ing to an AP dispatch. Suddenly, and out of the blue, three automobiles drove up and a gang of young black bucks jumped out swinging baseball bats and clubs and tore into the crowd scattering the watchers in all di­rections. Screaming women cowered or fled and four persons were so bad­ly injured they had to be hospital­ized and one was reported in crit­ical condition. Seven of the thugs were arrest­ed. Their spokesman when asked for an explanation replied: "\\1e were drinking beer and wine and just decided to go to the ball park and start a fight." The supervisor of the baseball team, McPherson A. Horner, had to undergo brain surgery as a re~ suit of the attack, and public in­dign~ tion in integrated Kansas City is said to be at a high pitch. Similar incidents are happening all the time, some of which are re­ported ip the press and some not. These brutal attacks will grow in numbe: and intensity 8S soft­hearted do-gooders continue to plug for racial mixing which, as any fool should have learned by this time gives the Negro a dis­torted idea of his importance and his "rights" Repeal Of Sideenth Amendment Would Take No Legitimate Income From U.S. Repeal of the Sixteenth Amend­ment to the Constitution will elim­inate over 700 wa~teful Federal corporate activities, release one million government employes; give you more of your own money to spend; abolish triple taxing on goods and services and keep a tight rein on a spendthrift government, says the Organization to Repeal Federal Income Tax, with ·head­quarters at 725 N. Western Avenue in Los Angeles. The repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment can be done without taking any legitimate income from the government, officials of OR­FIT insist and point out that the coroorate activities now engaged in by the Federal government are contrary to the Constitution and that tax money used by bureau~ crats in trying to run private busi­ness is wasted. Four State legislatures have passed resolutions demanding that Congress submit the Amendment for Repeal of the Sixteenth Amend­ment to the States for ratification as provided for in the second meth­od for amending the Constitution set forth in that document. These four States are Wyoming, Texas, Nevada, and Louisiana and when 32 more States have taken similar action, it becomes mandatory on CongreSs to submit the amendment for ratification. Fearful citizens who are con­cerned for the future of the Repub­lic as a result of the increasing and irresponsible squandering in Wash­ington can render no better service to the Republic than to discuss the matter with members of their leg­islature and request action at the earliest possible date. Able-Bodied Men Must Get Out And Hustle Or No Relief Checks The small city of Newburgh, New York, has come up with a revolutionary idea which is going to be bitterly opposed by social scientists with all the force at their command. In the future officials of that city will require that all able- bod~ ied men who are on relief must do 40 hours work per week to bal­ance off such relief. If they are capable of working and refuse to do so, there • will be no relief money. Also they are going to cut down on the amount of relief money paid to professional prostitutes who have babies on the side in order to keep steady money com­ing in. This is going to be looked upon by professional do-gooders as an infringement on the civil rights of loafers and prostitutes and no doubt the Civil Liberties Union will take a hand in the case and perhaps go to court. Commenting on the matter the Shreveport Journal said in part: Now that New York has taken a lesson from Louisiana and start­ed withholding welfare checks from unwed mothers who continue to have children, it will be interest­ing to see if the U.S. Department of Health, Welfare and Education becomes enraged. Last year when Louisiana de­cided to erid some of the "prof­its'' which prostitutes were reap­ing by becoming mothers, the federal government became so adamant that it threatened to cut off ALL welfare aid to Lou-isiana - even the pensions for old folks. It will be interesting also to see if the British press reacts as vio­lently to the crackdown on the motherhood-for-pay prostitutes in New York as it did to those in Louisiana. Remember how the poor, misguided women of Eng­land felt so sorry for the starving children in Louisiana that they took up a collection and sent food~ stuffs to America? Let's hope that, if any such sympathy movements are revived in England as a result ot the New York action, the funds which might be raised will be ap­plied to Britain's debt to America! July-Augu•l, 1961 Inflammatory Film Causes England To Lambast U.S. The C o 1 u m b i a Broadcasting Company made a distorted and In· flammatory film dealing with the freedom-riders incident in Alaba .. rna in which the facts were slanted in favor of the white and black hoodlums who went to the South to incite violence. Later this film was shown by the British Broadcasting Company in Engiand and together with an earlier showing of Edward R. Mur .. row's film titled Harvest of Shame, caused the Britishers to launch their usual criticism against the American people. England has its hands full, ac­cording to reports from overseas, with the daily shiploads of Negroes flowing into the tight little isle from its various colonies and for­mer dependents and, also accord­ing to these reports, the people of England don't like forced associa­tion nf the races any better than the American people. Meantime, what could possibly be the idea of the Columbia Broad· casting Company in mixing into the matter and trying to inspire criticism of the United States by a foreign country? Isn't there enough bickering as it is and enough lambasting of the United States by foreign countries who don't like anything about us except our money? "No money shall be drawn from the treasury but in consequence of appropriations made by law," says the Constitution, but according to columnist Raymond Moley, Presi· dent Kennedy has asked Congress for authority to spend between $30,000,000,000.00 and $40,000,· 000,000.00 through the "back-door" method which means drawing di­rectly on the treasury instead of waiting for Congressional appro .. priations. If he can get this much out of an empty treasury he's a good magician regardless of what we may think of him as a Presi­dent. "Last week the U.N. Special Fund approved a $1,157,600 grant to Castro's Cuba to 'improve' ag­riculture" says the Wall Street Journal. "The U.S. is but one of 18 members of the Fund composed of Western, Communist and neu­tral nations, but it puts up 40 per cent of the cash. Overriden in the fund's councils, the U.S. now stands committed to supply the bulk of this U.N. gift to the Western Hem· isphere." Texas Bap~ist schools have been told to stop borrowing money from the Federal government by the 191· member executive board of the Texas Baptist Convention. Good for the Baptists. If citizens would only tell the mayors, the governors and other State officials the same thing, and,make it stick, this business of running to Washington for hand­outs would soon stop. Mrs. Kennedy is to be congratu­lated for her poise, independence and naturalness in greeting Queen Elzabeth with a handshake instead of with a silly and toadying "curt .. sy." July-August, 1961 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Newspapers Join In Misrepresenting The Facts In Texas Political History Mrs. James E. Ferguson, former Governor of Texas, died at her home in Austin recently. She was Texas' only woman Governor and one of only two in the United States. Mrs. Ferguson's death was not unexpected as she had been hos­pitalized much of the time recent­ly, and was 86 years old. What amazed us in connection with Mrs. Ferguson's death was the misrepresentation concerning her late husband carried in the press and repeated by practically every newspaper and news service in the country, in announcing her death. The accounts stated that Gover­nor James E. Ferguson was im­peached for "fiscal irregularities." This was definitely not true. There was not a penny of State funds that was not accounted for and the record will so show. Governor Jim as he was c"alled, was impeached because he ran a­foul of crooked political educators at the University of Texas. Up until his election, appropria­tion bills for the University had always been approved without question and although it was gen­erally known that there were many "irregularities" in that institution, no Governor dared take any action because of the political strength of the organized educational forces of the State. University professors were not the highly organized and formid­able subversive force that they are today, but they were perhaps the most powerful political group in the State and they did not hesitate to exercise this power. When the appropriations bill for the University was passed by the legislature and went to the Gover­nor for signature, he refused to sign it until the names of the dead men who clogged the university's payroll were removed and other irregularities were corr~cted. The head of the university went to Governor Jim and warned him that if he vetoed the bill, they would "get him". Governor Jim promptly vetoed the bill and they "got him". That is the true story of the "fiscal irregularities" to which the newspapers referred in reporting on Mrs. Ferguson's death. Incompetency And Conformity Will Probably Govern Selection Of Judges ~·Good lawyers and good laws are indispensable in any society where there are bad people," says the weekly newspaper the Amer­ican Adviser, Sapulpa, Oklahoma, editorially, which adds: "But good laws and good law­yers can do little if judges are incompetent and corrupt. It's no more the function of the judge to make law than it is the umpire in a ball game to make the rules. No man can be at the same time both judge and lawmaker, for if he makes the law there is no issue for him to adjudicate." The above is a wise, forthright and unassailable statement of fact in outlining American judicial pol· Jcy and the words of this editor should be pondered long and ser· lously. For the President of the United States is now appointing some seventy or more Federal judges in keeping with a law which has been passed by Congress. And any one who thinks that In the selection of these Federal judges, the President Is going to steer clear of "incompetency and corruption" and choose only men of learning, or legal probity and established qualifications in juris­prudence, is too naive and gullible to be allowed to cross the street alone. We are glad that way back there when the State Department of· ficials were wining and dining Cas· tro in Washington and saying he was the George Washington of Cu­ba and all such claptrap, we pub­lished the truth about him-that he was a Communist tooL The President is supposed to ap­point both Republicans and Demo· crats as judges but since there is no longer any Republican or Dem­ocratic party, this means he will select seventy Socialists whom he regards as being in accord with his own ideological views. No unbias­ed and ethical judge will even be considered in all probability. In the case of so-called Demo­crats his yardstick will be how zealously the potential appointee supported the New Frontier last November and in the case of so~ called Republicans, the test requir­ed will be that such appointee is a "Moderate" Republican which means that he is a New Dealer but afraid to say so. Also any men he will appoint will, of course, be imbued with the Idea that the office of Federal judge carries with it the l!_Uthority to legislate since this precedent has been set by the small-bore politici­ans on the Supreme Court who snitched this power from Congress and got away with it. ; I In other words, the Fed~ral ju­diciary will not be lifted O( exalted by the appointment of a slue of new judges. We will probably have seventy or more characters quali­fied as police court judges sitting on Federal benches. According to Dallas newspapers July Fourth or Independence Day celebrations there had an "inter­national flavor" and the theme in many celebrations honored other countries. Why? What other coun­tries helped the United States achieve independence? Just some more "one-worldism", if you ask Utah Senator Introduces Resolution To Put An End To 'Backdoor Spending' Senator Wallace F. Bennett of Utah has introduced a resolution in the United States Senate which would put an end to "backdoor spending" and would require Sen­ate Appropriations Committee ap­proval of any spending proposal, including those which are current­ly financed directly from the Treas­ury. This "backdoor spending" is a means by which Washington poli­ticians can reach .directly into the till without going through the pro­cess required by the Constitution which says that no money shall be spent except that appropriated by Congress. In other words, it is a short-cut to thievery of the tax­payers' money and one which has proved very effective in the peren­nial race of the spenders to see how quickly they can bankrupt the Federal Treasury as per instruc­tions of Lenin and Marx. Like almost everything else that is evil and subversive in Washing· ton this "backdoor spending" deal was instituted during Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration when the RFC was given a key to the Treasury's back door. However, the practice has not only been con· tinued by succeeding administra· tions, but has been enlarged upon, and $140,000,000,000.00 has been filched from the taxpayers in this underhanded manner. Of course the primary purpose of this method of financing is to carry on the wild spending sprees with a minimum of publicity and keep taxpayers in the dark as to what is being done with their mon­ey. When the Constitutional pro· cedure is observed and money is spent only through appropriation by Congress, the people more or less are informed through the press which reports on the action by the The Fort Worth Star-Telegram says that "The country will be healthier politically if it has a chance at election time to choose between a conservative party and a liberal party" which is true but there are two factors which will probably prevent this happy choice being extended the American elec­torate. One is because Southern Conservatives in the Democratic party act like liberals at Conven­tion time and agree to a MarXist platform. The other is because "Modern Republicans" gang up at convention time and insist on a platform which practically dupli­cates the Marxist planks of the Democrats. And so we drift along with two National Socialist parties. Statesmanship in action. During the consideration of the Socialis­tic housing bill last month the Sen­ate, at one point, voted to throw out the whole program by a vote of 49 to 44, but after a 13 1/2 hours continuous session, the thing was finally passed by a 49 to 44 vote, an exact reversal. It is not known, of course~ what back stage pres­sure, in the nature of promises or threats, was used against the sol­ons but that is what happened ac­cording to press reports. Appropriations Committee. But when the spenders have a private pipe line to the Treasury a~. d can raid it at will, embarrassing pub­licity is avoided. It goes without saying that all the programs financed through this method have no proper place in a Constitutional Government and would be declared un-Consti­tutional if we had a Supreme Court which concerned itself with inter­preting the Constitution instead of devoting its time to the promotion of sociological program. Amon~ the programs financed by "backdoor spending" are the Depressed Areas legislation which authorized the administrator of that program to take $300,000,000.00 directly from the Treasury after bypassing Congress. The Public Housing program is also financed in this way as are many others and President Kennedy has asked that the Foreign Aid Program be given authority to use the key to the back door of the Treasury in rob­bing American taxoayers for the benefit of foreign beggars. A similar resolution has been Jn. traduced in the House by Con· gressman Thomas M. Pelly of Washin~ton State, but it was blocked by the stacked House Rules Committee by a vote of six to eight. The resolution by Senator Ben· nett will probably meet the same f e unless there is widespread in· terest in keeping the dirty cotton­pickin' hands of thieving politicians from reachin~ directly into the public till and this interest is man­ifested by direct communication with members of the Senate by their constituents. Senator Bennett's resolution is Res. 155. Any patriot who might want a position with the Wilmington, Del­aware, police department will save themselves time and trouble by not applying for the job. The depart­ment has a new ruling that loyal Americans such as members of the John Birch Society will not be elig­ible for employment. Alger Hiss is not a John Birch member and, presumably, would find no diffi­culty in gettin.g: on the force of "Wilmington's Finest." Where there is so much smoke there is bound to be some fire. Surely the Congress has been ad­vised enough of the activities of the Council on Foreign Relations and the fact that a heavy percent· age of appointed officials in Wash~ ington during the past twenty five years of the nation's betrayal, have belonged to this outfit to warrant an investigation. What is Congress waiting on? Is CFR so powerful that members of Congress are a~ fraid of it? Congressman George H. Mahon of Texas speaking of the condition of the Federal treasury said that this country has reached the point where it has no money and added that a taxpayer in the same pre- ~ dicament would know he had ''in· sufficent funds" in his bank ac· count to pay his bills. Pogo 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVAT IVE July-August, 1961 President Lauds Late Author As One Of World's Greatest Men Enthusiastic Conservative Gathering At Dallas Hears Tom Anderson Speak Ernest Hemingway whose recent death is mourned by legions of his admirers was able to build a suc­cessful writing career on the de­pravity of human nature. His books were filled with slime; filth and obscenity and, in keeping with current morals, they became best sellers which brought him distin­guished prizes and awards. On his death, President Kennedy eulogized him as "one of the great­est citizens of the world" who had "almost singlehandedly transform­ed the literature and the ways of thought of men and women in ev­ery country of the w orld," and de­clared that he had "brought re­nown to America." Hemingway went as a corres­pondent to the Spanish Civil War and because of his sympathy for the Communists in that conflict, the Dailv Worker, official Commu­nist pu-blication in the United States carried an article on Janu­ary 11, 1941, page 7 concerning him. This article stated that a num­ber of the veterans of the Spanish Civil War, being angered at the picture of the Spanish Civil War presented by Ernest Hemingway in his latest book, For Whom the They'd Better Forget It THE KNOXVILLE JOURNAL Friday, June 16, l96l Some readers mus have noted the controversy which has been going on for some weeks between A. G. Heinsohn Jr., choleric. argu­mentative and articulate president of Cherokee Textile Mills, and Pit­ney- Bowes Inc., postage meter manufacturer. The nub of the argument is that Pitney-Bowes has demanded the return of a plate used on a postage meter leased from Pitney-Bowes. The plate prints on the envelope as it affixes the stamp. Almost every user of a postage meter has a plate with some sort of wordage devised by the lessee of the machine. In Mr. Heinsohn's case, the plate used by his Cherokee Mills reads as fol­lows: "This is a Republic, not a democ­racy - let's keep it that way! Cherokee Textile Mills." Pitney-Bowes' reason for de­manding return of the plate and cessation of the use of it by Lessee Heinsohn is the claim that the slo­gan is ~<controversiaL" The leasing corporation wants the addition of the phrase "Advertisement By Mailer." Mr. J-feinsohn has declined to ex­chan~ e his present meter plate for the one with the amended wording as suggested by Pitney-Bowes. Aside from the fact that the sen­tence or exhortation of the Hein­Sohn plate, as it now stands, has the full support of the federal Con­stitution, it seems to us that the meter manufacturer in this whole controversy is assuming power of censorship completely without jus­tification. We agree with Mr. Hein­sohn for once of a few times in our lives, that when he leases a postage meter, provides the envelopes and Bell Tolls, had announced their in­tention of speaking from the floor at a symposium of the book which was to be held at 50 East 13th Street, headquarters of the Com­munist Party, U.S.A., under the auspices of the Workers School. In October 1941, Hemingway, with Lillian Hellman, headed a committee of sponsors for a dinner­forum for Communist refugees at the Hotel Biltmore in New York. Governor Herbert H. Lehman re­voked his sponsOr$hip of the din­ner- forum when he learned that many of the spQnsors had been connected w!th Communist activi­ties. (Page 234, F~urth Report, Un· American Activities in California). These remarks are not intended to cast discredit on the late au­thor because he was very proud of his ideological beliefs and ex­pounded them fully and frankly but is merely meant to show that contempt for Americanism and American insti tutions is no bar to one seeking to achieve fame in the United States. Our heartfelt thanks to the Fort Worth lady who telephoned us to say that her husband had pronounc­ed our lead editorial in the May edition concerning Joe McCarthy as ranking along with the Gettys­burg address. This is, naturally, praise far beyond the just deserts of the editoria l, but it, together with many other expressions from read­ers along the same line, gives us a lift which we sorely need. We think that Joe McCarthy should be thrown in the face of ungrateful Americans who refused to heed his warning and we intend to do it on every possible occasion. George Meany, president of AFL­CIO has suggested that Congress arm President Kennedy with more power so he can "mobilize the ec­onomy to meet any eventuality." Ye gods! What powers are there that Congress has not already giv­en him? What does Meany mean? Does he want to turn the White House into a Kremlin?

Constitutional Rights Of Nearly Two Centuries To Be Discarded Discussing the creation by Ex­ecutive Order of the United States Disarmament Administration, an agency which has been described as "the propaganda arm of the State Department" and whose ob­jective is claimed to be to bring about Hinternational security with an international police force," the June, 1961 edition of the New Age, a Masonic publication, said editor­ially in part: A so-called "briefing session," in reality part of an indoctrination course in internationalism, was re­ported to have been held at the State Department on March 23, 196), , at which about 75 persons representing non - governmental groups attended upon invitation.

Mr. Gullion's alleged further statement that the Disarmament Administration must not be respon­sible to the Congress or to the White House, but only to the Sec­retary of State demands critical analysis for its implicit content. Here seems to be clearly outlined a plan for the unhampered acquisi­tion of governmental control by non-elected officials in no way re­sponsible for their actions, either directly or indirectly, to the elec­torate. It could mean only the eventual complete suspension of all our con­stitutional rights as we have known and understood them for nearly t~~~of~ fo:V~:~~:sA m~~i~~~a~~~~~ two centuries. , In his response to Prime Minister ciation for the United Nations, Fed4 MacMillan's speech of welcome eratioil of American Scientists, when he arrived in London, Presi- · Twentieth Century Fund, United dent Kennedy said among other Automobile Workers, and the Geh­things: "Two of my sisters had the eral federation of W o m e n ' s good judgment to marry English- Group~.

It would seem to be quite obvious that these officials hope to accomplish unobserved a purpose they could not undertake openly. Public Law No. 85-474 of the 85th Congress, as amended, forbids tbe use of public tax funds for the purpose of advancing the cause of world government. These "briefing sessions" are reported to have been carried on for years by the Depart­ment with no newspaper publicity and almost no invitations have been offered to strongly conserva~ tive patriotic organizations.

From our observation of Mr. Heinsohn and his devotion to his convictions over the years, we can assure Pitney-Bowes that in this dispute it has a bear by the tail. Our advice, proffered without charge, is for the meter manufac­turer to let well enough alone. employees. It is highly important for our peo­ple to know that this group of paid government officials with $400,000 of the State Department funds im· mediately in hand is asking for an additional $600,000 from Congress for the purpose of expediting the substituting for our present con­stitutional republican form of gov­ernment a world government that could succeed only in shackling us to a totalitarian tyranny. It Is worth noting that Mr. Gullion explained that "it was difficult to work un­der the 18th century Constitution." ---------------------------1-HE_ SOUTHERN CONSERYATIYE_ _______________________f•_ g_ e7 University of Texas Faculty The Adop·~ion Of ABA Proposal Would 60!~e~1 !h~u!r!~[;nR~~t!!;~ed Mean A field Day For Red Teachers the campaign in the United States for integration of schools in the South. their agents were instructed to say that the movement was only to help Negroes get an education. They soft~pedaled any suggestion of social mixing beyond that neces­sary during class hours. This was done, of course, to soften up oppo­sition to integration and to bring in line those who would have re­treated in horror at the suggestion that the races mingle at social functions. A proposal to set up courses in high schools and colleges to "teach the history and characteristics of International Communism as con­trasted with freedom in Western countries" is. gaining headway and meetings are being held in various localities to work up sentiment for putting the proposal into operation. The movement, unfortunately, is being sponsored by the American Bar Association and its Pres­ident, Mr. Whitney North Seymour. th:u~~s t~~e~o~~~:~a~~~;~n~~~ ~~~e~~~~s~~e;:.~ ~~v!::ntg~e:J all pretense that integration is probably means that within a few merely to provide an opportunity to years Communism will be openly :~~ an education has been discard- . =~~o~~fi~~~~~o~~~~~\~~t ~~rith~~~ been covertly taught in those in­They want mixing all down the stitutions for twenty-five years. line and they do mean ALL down the line. A forceful example is the Uni­versity of Texas whose faculty re­cently adopted a resolution calling for the admission of Negro stu­dents to "extracurricular activities'' at the University. "A great univer­sity is not limited to formal in­struction," said the sociology pro­fessor who submitted the resolu­tion, "but includes dormitory bull sessions, the playing field and the concert hall." The professor was proceeding ex­actly according to schedule -inch up a little at a time so the impact on decent people will be gradual and the shock value of the move­-. nlent will be lessened . Then, according to plan, the time will come when the objective of integration is accomplished and Southern universities will have the ennobling experience of seeing black men and white girls strolling arm in arm around the campus, and vice versa. When, and if, that time comes it will mean that we are complete­ly ino;tead of only partially taken over by the Soviets, but this could be averted if the management of ceJ tain Southern schools and uni­versities were cleansed of the sub­versives now directing them and decent, responsible and represen­tative educators put in their place. Members of the Governors Con­ference apparently had a high old time at their Convention in Hono­lulu what with flitting around in aloha shirts "that would shame a rainbow" as one reporter put it, being kissed by half caste island girls, eating poi with their fingers and drinking potent concoctions served by their hospitable hosts. But the most fetching sight of all, it is claimed, was Governor Rock­efeller jazzing around with an hi­biscus behind his ear. Oh well, boys will be boys. The greatest menace to the safe­ty, freedom, security, solvency, progress and general welfare of the United States and the Common­wealths which comprise it, are na­tional and State lawmakers the great majority of whom have no respect or sympathy for the Amer­ican form of government. And they are the ones, too, who take an oath to uphold the constitution, yet are doing everything in their pow­er to emasculate it. Of course it is supposedly the plan that by a comparison of the two ideologies of government, Americanism and the Capitalistic system will emerge victoriously and that the student will be sold on our form of government, but anyone who falls for this poppy­cock has little understanding of the realities of life as they now exist. The very fact that American students have to be "sold" Ameri­canism in the first place should sound a warning bell in the minds of thinking Americans and should be irrefutable evidence that a bang­up job of "selling" Communism in American educational institutions has already been done. Red teachers would like nothing better than to be given the signal to go ahead and openly teach Com­munism to their students and of course this means that rather than slanting their own views in the in­terest of Americanism, they will manage to convey the impression through innuendo, nuances and outright suggestion that Capitalism is an outmoded system and that Communism is the most "Demo­cratic" form of government and one best adapted to our bright new One-World of tomorrow. These Red teachers have been handing out this line for so many years that our educational institutions are constantly spewing out young Marxists by the thousands. Why should we expect them to sudden­ly change their tactics when given permission to officially put Com­munism on the curriculum of each high school and college? Is anyone so stupid, for instance, as to believe that these Red teach­ers will tell the truth about how Communism got a stronghold in the United States? Will they ex­plain one President's sell-out to Stalin at Yalta; another President's sell-out to the same dictator at The Soviets are conscripting chil­dren in Cuba and sending them to Russia according to speakers at a Pan-American meeting in New York recently. These kidnappings were compared to those in Greece in 1947 where children were torn from their families and sent behind the Iron Curtain. Now the practice is getting pretty close to us when it happens in Cuba. Perhaps it will help awaken Americans - perhaps not. They sleep pretty soundly. Potsdam; will they tell their stu­dents of Harr.y Hopkins' betrayal of this country to the Communists by providing them with the formula for secret weapons intended to pro­tect us from the Soviets; will they ,tell them of our State Department's betrayal of China into the hands of Communists; of the S u p r e m e Court's surrender to Swedish Com­munist Gunnar Myrdal's demand that they hand down rulings which knock out the Rights of States and shatter customs, practices and tra­ditions which have prevailed in the United States for almost a hundred years in order r to cause strife and confusion between the races and make them ripe for Communist take-over; will these Red teachers explain al~ this and scores of other cases of betrayal of the American people to the Communists in order that the students may actually get the true picture of the menace of Communism? Let's not be silly, It is too bad that the leaders of the great and powerful American Bar Association did not think clear through the subject instead of ac­cepting the first proposal offered them and that probably of dubious origin. If they had given the mat­ter the thought and consideration it deserved, and had used mature judgment, they would have come out with a demand not that teach­ers in American schools and col­leges "begin" teaching Communism but that they "quit' teaching it and oncentrate an instructing students in American history and in our matchless system of government which has given these poor, brain­washed students a measure of free­dom and opportunity for achieve­ment which the staves under Com­munism can never hope to enjoy, If the schools and colleges in the United States will do this. Com­munism will automatically be dis­credited, a new generation of Americans wiJl be salvaged and Communism will cease to flourish in the American Republic as it has done for the past quarter century. There is no more occasion to start teaching Communism in · American schools and colleges than there is to teach Fascism, Nazism or any other abominable and per­verted ideology and the fact that the leaders of the American Bar Association cannot see this palpa­ble fact is discouraging to patriotic Americans who are determined tp stamp out Communism within our borders rather than contribute to its spread. Newspapers referred to the awarding of the "Lenin Peace Prize" by the Soviet Union upon Fidel Castro as "Today's biggest laugh" but, somehow, we saw noth­ing funnier in that than in the ac­tion of the Freedoms Foundation in this country which recently be­stowed the George Washington Honor Medal Award on the Na­tional Council of Churches of Christ for allegedly bringing about better understanding of uthe American way of life." One Of The Nation's Greatest -Tragec'lies Occurred In 1952 There was a note of sadnes$ in the visit of General of the Army Douglas MacArthur to the Philip­pines recently which brought a lump to the throats of the millions of Americans who adore him as the greatest hero in the military history of the United States. His first and only defeat occurred when he ran up against a President who believed that the proper way to fight a war was to lose it. In Manila, the ovation to the General was overwhelming with the greatest crowds paying trib­ute to him ever assembled in the history of the islands. The uni· versal acclaim and the cordiality of his welcome served to empha­size the shabby treatment accord­ed him by a former Captain of the Infantry in this country who happened to have the political power to embarrass the great mili­tary genius who outshone him as the sun outshines the tawdry sparkle of an imitation diamond. This great nation has suffered no greater tragedy since 6ie be­ginning of the Republic than the fact that General MacArthur was double-crossed out of the nomina­tion for President at Chicago in 1952. His enemies claimed he was too old for the office but even now, nine years later, he ic; still more vigorous phvsically and men­tally than some of those who were regarded as being highly qualified for the job. At any rate, we've got a young one at t he helm of the Ship of State now. Youth is in the saddle and we shall see what will happen. Soenders Raise The Debt Ceiling Again Instead of making an effort to reduce the national debt, the Ken­nedy administration asked Con­gress to again raise the legal debt limit, this time to $298,000,000,- 000.00. Out of a membership in the House of 437, only 148 voted against the proposal to up the debt ceiling. Most of the opposing votes were cast by Republicans althoueh Dem· o c r a t i c Congressman Clarence Cannon of Missouri Joined in warn­ing his colleagues of this reoeated refusal to face the situation real­istically and begin plans for retire­ment of the national debt which is now the highest in all history and more than that owed by all other countries in the world combined. In selecting his staff and all the personnel involved in running the government, we hope that tht> next President of the United States chooses only men and womPn who have worked their way through college. In this event, they will not have had time to stuff their heads with Socialism and will perhaps have some measure of common sense. By that time, however, we may already have gone over the brink to total oblivion because of the fact that educated fools have ruined a Constitutional Republic. P•ge 8 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE If only He Had Practic~d Texas Solon Praised As Outstanding What He Is Now Preachmg - • • en~~!e~~~og~tb~:~~~ ~~eE~f Example Of American Statesmanship the best Presidents the United Words of such extravagant praise as are seldom showered on a States ever had and if the mem~ public official were heard in both the House and Senate on June 12 hers of Congress would only take when Democrats and Republicans alike joined in tribute to Mr. Sam his advice this nation would soon Rayburn for "his 58 years of public service." be back on the road to Constitu-tional Government again. The only trouble is that he wait­ed until he was out of office to show what a good President he could be. When he was in the White House he performed almost the opposite of what he is now claiming is the proper way to ad~ minister the American govern~ ment. In every speech he makes he dwells on economy in government to an extent that is laughable when it is remembered how he advocat~ ed foreign aid "on a permanent ba~ sis" :while stin President, Federal Aid to Education, and all the other Socialistic measures which Mr. Kennedy is now pushing with equal vigor. His criticism of the new Presi~ dent's squandering policies and his suggestion that Kennedy preserve the riP."hts of States and freedom of the individual come with poor grace with one who forgot these rights and freedoms while he was still ir. position to do something about it. We holci no brief for Mr. Kenne~ dy certainly and have no doubt that before he is through with the job, he will excel Eisenhower's record for squande ring and for vi­ol a t i n ~ the rights of States, since eac 'Prestdent of the United States seems destined to become progres~ sively worse along this line. But at least so far, Kennedy, while he sent U.S. Marshals into Alabama, has not yet ordered out the militia to jab bayonets into the backs of peaceable citizens de~ fending their schools. Neither has he invited Khrushchev so far, to come to the Unitect States and in~ suit the American people on their home base. In short, President Eisenhower is - fast becoming the Conservative, sound-thinker that the majority of American voters thought he was when they elected him President in 1952. The President continues to lay stress on the fact that one of his principal objectives during his ten­ure of office is to "abolish poverty throughout the world." This is a noble and altruistic program but we wish he would begin it right here at home and quit sending rec~ ommendations to Congress which, if enacted into law, will eventually make paupers out of the taxpay~ ers of the United States. There is not much percentage in banishing poverty in the rest of the world, at the same time, planning the i.mpov~ erishment of the people of his own country. There is a strong conviction in many areas that the bearing down on business concerns under the guise of the anti-trust law- from which labor unions are exempt­is merely another facet of the con- .... spiracy to abolish American free entPr...,rise and hasten World So­cialism. His friends and admirers back in Texas learned through press ac­counts of the affair that no less an authority than the President of the United States had pronounced his "devotion to cause and country" as "immeasurable; that he is one of the greatest men in American history .. that he has won his high position by the grace of his many talents; that he has helped to insure the effective continuity of the best system of government yet devised by the mind of man; that his contribution to American government literally dwarfs the accomplishments of most lead~ ers; that few of our Presidents have matched his contribution to fair, ef· ficient, responsible, concerned and progressive government by the con­sent of the governed; and finally that many have noted with sadness that this great American because of a bad break of time and circ~m~ stances, had not had the opportunity to serve as President of the Umted States. There is no doubt that these sentiments are echoed in the hearts of Mr. Sam's friends in Texas as attested by the fact that there are legions of persons in his native State who agree wholeheartedly that he possesses all the great virtues credited to him. But politics being what it is, it is equally certain that there are a few million others around over the State who are a mite skeptical that he possesses all the abilities of pure and undiluted statesmanship attributed to him. On occasions like this, we are reminded of the following story which is so old it has whiskers a foot long but which is always appli­cable to any of us mortals when we are inclined to take at face value the appraisal of our friends and associates who, for this reason or that, may be slightly biased in our favor: There was a notorious town bum who hadn't done a lick of work in years; who beat his wife and forced her to take in washing to support the family; who cheated his pals in card games and who had been known to sneak out in the early morning hours and steal the milk on his n eigh~ bor's front porch. Finally he became til nd at d. There was a new preacher in town who knew none of these things and who was called on to preach the funeral. Wishing to make a good impression in his new job, the preacher pulled out all the stops and went to town in his eulogy of the departed townsman. He told of the devotion of the late lamented for his family; of his activities as a model citizen and held him up as an exalted example of a life dedicated to the betterment of his community, his state and the nation. When his encomiums had reached a pitch where caution was thrown overboard and only superlatives were employed to describe the mani­fold virtues of the deceased, the bedraggled widow sitting quietly with her brood of seven children reached over and whispered to her oldest boy: "Son go up and take a peek in that there coffin and make sure it's your pa he's talkin' about." Favorite Sport Of Politicians Is Running With The Hare and Trailing With The Hounds Speaking of the so-called "Coalition of Southern Democrats with Conservative Republicans" which is not "coalescing" any more W. D. Workman, the noted columnist says: "The remarkable feature of the situation has been the ability of many Southerners in Congress to keep their constituencies persuaded that they--congressmen-are conserva­tives. Relatively few voters take the trouble to read the Congressional Record or to maintain their own records of how congressmen vote. Quite a few Dixie solons manage to play both ends against the middle -masquerading as conservatives at home to gain votes and maneuver­ing as liberals in Congress to curry favor with the Democratic leader· ship." Mr. Workman has hit the nail right squarely on the head. One of the principal causes of the sad plight of the United States today is the infernal hypocrisy of its lawmakers who have been able to hoodwink their constituents into thinking they are sound conservative statesmen when, in truth, they are nothing more than horse-trading politicians concerned in only one thing and that is holding their seats in Congress. Their favorite sport is running with the hare and trailing with the hounds and they are going to keep on doing it as long as the voters re~ fuse to keep up with their records and call them to account for their liberal votes. No householder would hire a sloppy domestic servant and turn over the home without supervision or responsibility. It is a thousand times more dangerous to do so in the case of a public servant for in the latter case, the very survival of the Republic may be involved. July-August, 1961 The Constitution Has A Name For This Offense Below are the names of the sen· ators who have gone on record by their vote as being in favor of giv­ing aid and comfort to the enemy of the United States. Their vote was on Senate Bill 1215 which would amend the Bat­tle Act so as to permit strategic materials to be sent to Communist bloc countries throughout the world, with the exception of Rus­sia and Red China, and which would thereby help such countries in their preparation for war against us!

The following among them will come up for re-election in 1962 and if their constituents vote to return them to the Senate, then they deserve the betrayal of which they are the recipient: Hill of Ala· bama, Hayden of Arizona, Ful· bright of Arkansas, Carroll of Colorado, Bush of Connecticut, Javits of New York, Morlroney of Oklahoma, Morse of Oregon, Clark of Pennsylvania, Aiken of Ver­mont, Magnuson of Washington, and Wiley of Wisconsin. "The hard-core Communists are a petty menace. We could wipe them out, politically and spiritual· ly, in 24 hours, given honest, brave leadership in the White House."­Westbrook Pegler. John K. Galbraith, U.S. Ambas­sador to India, has just announced the glad news that this country has slipped the Indian government a $20,000,000.00 "loan." Wonder if professor Galbraith informed the Indians that they should not buy any mink coats or Cadiiiacs with these funds. The former Harvard egghead recently expressed the op­inion that Americans have no mar .. at right to buy such luxuries even with their own money.
