Our nomination for the silliest performance by a politic ian to date is that of Estes KeFauver pos!ng for a picture in Moscow with a Bolshevik baby in his arms and grinning like a jackass eating a cactus. Earlier he was reported to have delivered a 11sermon" in a Soviet­controlled church. Some one should have told him that the Communists will have no delegates at the Chicago conven­t ion-none direct from Moscow, that is. Of course the boys over there will have their friends pres­eni who will keep everything un­der control, but even a dedicated Fair Dealer doesn't need to cam­paign in the land of vodka and the Volga. He should have saved his baby­k iss ing until he got back home because he's apt to give out before the campaign gets going good. Besides, it's just too much wear and tear on his kisser. World Expert Picks A President For Us Well, it's all settled; an oracle has spoken and those who have suggested this man or that for President had just as well save their breath. Eleanor Roosevelt says that Adlai Stevenson is "the best qualified and best trained person in the United States" to be President. There is no point in either Party holding a convention and wasting a lot of money since the inspired advice of a world expert has been tendered Just as there is said to be "A Broken Heart for every Light on Broadway" so is there going to be a disi llusioned leader of every country which continues to hold diplomatic conferences with Rus­sian barbarians who talk peace with those whom they plan to con­quor. Great American Is Cheated Out Of His Chance for Immortality Some years ago, when he was Foreign Aid Director and had more taxpayers' money to dispense than he had places to put it, Averill Harriman erected two hundred public r est rooms on vacant lots outside the city of Manila while bug-eyed nat ives stood around making bets with each other as to what use t he cozy little structures were to be pu t. Their guesses ranged all the way from storage bins for surplus betel nuts to individual smokehouses for curing the meat of wild boars. It is reported that when the edifices were completed so widespread was the confusion that Harriman was compelled to allot an additional appropriation to bring government experts on technical aid from Wash~ ington to give instructions and illustrated lectures on the superiority of modern American methods over antiquated native customs. In his Washington column, a noted press correspondent tells of a recent trip of inspection by the current Foreign Aid Director to Manila who found that these projects which had been forced on reluctant Filipinos by well-meaning American bureaucrats were deserted, rotting away and gradually being covered by the wild, lush growth in this far~ away Pacific island. !t seems that the native population, including the untamed Igor· rotes, had refused to become house-broke and that they took a dim view of the fancy lit tle hutches as a r eplacement for more familiar facilities provided them by nature in, the form of spreading banyan trees along the shores of a sleepy lagoon. And so it is that what might have eventuallY become two hundred individual monuments attesting to the greatness of Harriman as a benefactor of under-privileged humanity, are disappearing into the greedy jaws of the savage jungle and thus are destined to serve merely as additional mute evidence of the folly of one more American Ambas~ sador of Good Will with a soft heart-and a head to match. For almost a quarter of a century~ long-suffe ring taxpayers of the United States have been compe lled by American foreign policy to wet-nurse the wo rld. But there is a rising protest by these unwilling foster mothers that their milk ducts are drying up and that they are just about ready to wean their foreign babies. Also, there Is an unbelievable number of them w ho have come to understand and to re spect t he Constitu­tional limitations of the American government and a dawning recognition of the fact that In t his Republic, their personal obligations lie sole ly in supporting t heir families, the ir churches, their schools a nd their govern· me nt and in defending their country In the event of attack. They are realizing, at long last, that the cus­tom f ta in t i m un in x ess o • needs of Jocaf, state and nationaf governing bodies is criminal violation of our organic law and that their financial obligtions end at the frontiers of the country to which they owe allegiance. Our repeated diplomatic defeats at the international conference table, our rapidly diminishing prestige throughout the world and ob~ vious evidence that the head of no nation can serve more than one master, is causing a re-alignment in thinking on the part of a large segment of the American people. Evidence is steadily mounting that millions of American citizens are fed up to the gills with Internationalists in the White House who start out with aspirations for world leadership but who usually wind up as a mere appendage of an alien conspiracy in which foreign dicta­tors make the rules and call the shots. Before he shall enter the execution of his office, an America~ Presi­dent must take this oath as set out in the Constitution: "I do ~solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the duties of the President of the United States and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." In taking this oath, he commits himself irrevocably to discharge his responsibilities and obligations in keeping with the provisions of this incomparable document which was written by Americans, for Americans and to insure the perpetuity, not of unstable and tottering foreign governments. but of the American Republic. There is not a Jine and not a word in this solemn covenant of the American government with its citizens, and which the President swears to execute, that authorizes him to assume custody over the moral, spir~ itual and material well-being of the peoples of any nation on earth other than his own. · And yet, for more than two decades the interest of American Pre s i~ dents in the financial solvency, national entity and internal security of the Unted States has been gradually giving way to a growing con~ cern for the political , economic and military betterment of a rapidly· increasing list of alien countries scattered around over the globe. Not only have our Chiefs of State embraced a suicidal Marxian theory and compelled Americans to share their wealth but they have committed us to the more treasonable doctrine which demands that we must divide our loyalty and pledge hyphenated allegiance to a com­bination of alien flags as embodied in a treacherous world organization whose purpose and plan is to denude us of our sovereignty, our freedom and our inalienable rights. Under the leadership of modern Presidents who have followed the (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It Paqe 2 • THE SOUTIHRN CONSERVATIVE November, December, 1955 Why The Democrats Gained In We Pay Social Security to Communist Recent State And Local Tests Spies and Aliens With Plural Wives One ol the rights of. Americans that hasn't been taken away is the privi· lege of analysing election returns and one guess is as good as another. To us, the only practicJl and com. monst!nse explanation of the Demo· cratic gains in the recent State and local cleclions is due to pure disgust on the part of the voters, and not to any preference for the brand of Democrats currently active in party leader ship. Thia was proved in 1952 when an overwhelming majority voted for the ' 'change" which they were not to get ' but which they confidently expected and had been promised. ll the Republicans have learned nothing and insist on putting up a candidate again who doesn't have even a speaking acquaintance with the principles of the original Republi· can Party belore it was absorbed by the Socialists, the country will go for the phony Democrat• who are also part ol the Socialist Party. Apparently this step will be on the theory that if we are a-oing to have National Socialism any way, why not put the New and Fair Dealers back In power who are expert$ at adminis· tcring a Socialist government and who make no pretense of being anything else. Trying To Change Lincoln Into An Internationalist In a folder published by "Crusade for Freedom" whose address 1.!1 not given and whose officials are not shown, a description is given ol the work ol Radio Free Europe and Radio Free Asia In "fighting Communism." The picture of a bell is shown that duplicates the American Liberty Bell which it seems Is taken around to various countries for display under the name of the "World Freedom Bell". On the rim ol the bell are inscribed what are described inaccurately as the words ot Abraham Lincoln: ''That this World under God shall have a new Birth of Freedom". }(braham Lincoln never said any such thing. His exact words were: "That this nation, under God, shall l1ave a new Birth of Freedom". The word ''World" was substituted for the word "Nation" out of defer· ence to the obvious propaganda for World Government. General George Catlett Mar­shall explains that the, reason he agreed to become a member of the Council of the Atlantic Union is because the late Owen Roberts told him to. The General seems to be a great one for doing what he is told. It will be recalled that he went to China and helped to Com­munize that countTy because "lib­erals" in the State Department told him :t_:o__.:_~~~~~- E:1:cuse, condone Han·y Truman If you wm, But the smell of ''red herring" Clings round him stilt. - Yt1ri Rast.vorv~er Russian police officer, said in Washington that Russia's peaceful " coexist­ence ·· campaign is nothing more than a "carefully planned tactic designed to blind the free world ro the ever-present threat of world - wide Communist domina· tion." Everybody knows this to be true e:t·cept ottr leaders. One Official Who Respects His Campaign Promises No American worth his salt can fail to admire the type of official courage displayed by Georgia's governor, Marvin Griffin, in deal­ing with the subject of segregation as it affects the State over which he presides as Chief Executive. During his campaign, he made a vow to call out troops, if neces­sary, to preserve the peace and dignity of Georgia and the way of life preferred by a majority of the citizens of that great State. Unlike most politicians who shed their campaign pledges as casually as they dispose of a dirty shirt, he recently reiterated this intention in words that left no question as to his meaning. The occasion was a call made on ~~~ubrh: ?.G~~r;:i~~!~it~::~~ Inter-racial Cooperation." True to the pattern of all such groups, the outfit is affiliated with the South· ern Regional Council, successor to the Southern Conference on Hu­man Welfare which disbanded some years ago when cited as a Communist front. As is the case always this or· ganization is composed of equal parts of extreme left-wing b•"'lch­ers, preachers and Negroes whose dedicated mission on earth is to see that little white girls are seat· ed by little Negro boys, or that little Negro girls are deskmates of little white boys, in the public schools of the South in the hope that this intimacy will finally flower into Moscow's dream of to· tal mongrelization. Griffin ended th~ discussion by telling them in no uncertain terms that he will close the schools of Georgi.a before he permits any mixing of the races and added that the Supreme Court cannot force that State to levy taxes for schools. All honor to Governor Griffin and may his tribe increase. If we were a do-gooder and wanted to get aU uhet up'' over a "cause," we would go out for Civil Rights for the Arabs who have been denied tlteirs in a big way and also deprived of tlteir property rights. Since they don't have a bloc vote in this country and don't own the. communica­tions system.s here, they are out of luck so far as a propaganda medium is concerned. We com­mend their sad plight to the good offices of uplifters of humanity who have run out of things to uplift. The members of the Methodist Church of Old Mystic, Connecti­cut, who elected a Negro pastor of their all-white church were ap­parently willing to stoop pretty low in order to get nation·wide publicity. They were glad to make a mockery of religion by pulling a~is cheap stunt in a bid for the notoriety they could get in no otherw_ a ....::y_. ------ "God grants libert.y only to those who love it and are always ready to guard and defend it"­Daniel Webster. Senator John Williams of Delaware who often is claimed tQ appoint him­self a one·man investigating commit­tee to uncover corruption in govt!rn­ment, is mightily distressed over something at which Washington o(fi· cials have been winking for years. He can't for the life of him, under· stand why Americans should be taxed in order to provide social security for Communists who are serving a term in prison for plotting the overthrow of the American government and he wants to put a stop to it. He has just recently learned that one such big· shot Communist is drawi~g social se· curity payments from Washington which is delivered to him by the warden each month. He also takes a dim view of aliens who work a short while in this coun. try and then go home, and continue to get their cute little social s~urity check from a government which is more than $280,000,000,000 in the red and is operating on the cuff. And he fairly f.oams at the mouth over the case of aliens from countries where polygamy is legal, anfl who draw social security !rom the U. S. government.

Could you explain it to me"? No, because there is none. Originally, the prin· cipal difference between them had to do with States Rights and the tariff question. Democrats believ· ed in States Rights while Republi~ cans were for a centralized gov .. ernment. Republicans were for a protective tariff and the Demo .. crats for free trade. Now the lead· ers of both parties are against States Rights and for a centralized government. Both are also against a protective tariff. and about the only difference between them is that the Republicans think they should be in power and the Dem­ocrats insist they should be. Both pa1·ties have been fused into one big Socialist Party.

An American Prayer; (Continued from Page 1) unauthorized course of assuming the eco!lomic, social and financial burdens of the universe and who base our domestic and foreign policies on advice and directives from abroad, the United States has piled up a national debt of such monumental proportions that fiscal experts claim it will require perhaps three generations to liquidate it; eight hundred million people have lost their freedom, their right to self­government and in some cases, the land of their birth ; American prestige has been forfeited in large areas of the world a11d hundreds of thou· sands of young Americans have been forced to sacrifice their personal dreams of the future and stand ready to risk their lives in hot, cold and luke-warm wars all over the surface of the earth. Under this maniacal procedure, we have bolstered the resources of wobbling Socialist Empires as in the case of England whom we have loaded down with money, gifts and treasure to the point where that hybrid Socialist-Monarchy is now able to boast that they have a healthy surplus in their treasury while the national debt of the country which sUstains them merrily gallops toward the three·hundred·billion·dollar .. mark. Disregarding the age-old axiom that charity begins at home and ignoring the code of moral ethics which demands that· an elected offi· cial display the same scrupulous care in disbursing public monies that he does in supervising the expenditure of his personal funds , officials of the executive and legislative branches of government have squan­dered the substance of American taxpayers with the reckless abandon of corrupt ancient Emperors in the days of the decadent Roman Em­pire. There is a growing belief that the vast contingent of awakening Americans who are coming to recognize the White House as an immense Global Community Cht!it for dispensing charity on an international basis, might be able, through unified political action in 1956, to drive the Internationalists and One·Worlders from our high Councils of State and to replace them with Americans of undivided loyalty to their own country and exclusive allegiance to their own· flag. In great emergencies during the first one hundred and filty years of the Republic, Americans always met the acid test and it is incon· ceivable that even a constant barrage of propaganda over a long period of years should blind their descendants of this generation to the threat to t:1e survival of their country through the twin perils of Internation­alism and \Vorld Government.

As one reads this dissertation by Dimitrov, the picture of hundreds upon hundreds of highly-placed Americans flashes across the mind and we can understand why these persons act as they do. This is what Dimitrov said: •• As Soviet power grows, there will be a &reater aversion to com­munist parties everywhere. So we must practice the techniques of withdrawal. Never appear in the foreground; let our friends do the work. "We must always remember that one sympathizer is generally worth more th::m a dozen militant 'tommunisb.

Digger" of It Recently a Texas minister delivered a sermon to his largely brain­washed congregation which was intended as a knock-out blow against all Americans who are so unsympathetic to the new 01Socia1 Gospel" laid down by Karl Marx that they dare to publicly brand it as outright Communist invasion of the pulpit. All real patriots, he solemnly avowed, are those who want peace­presumably at any price-and those who protest concessions to. and appeasement of, the Communists are not patriots at all but trouble­makers who want to bring about World War III. Quicker than you can say Khvushchev or Bulganin. he divided the people of this country into two classes-the peace-ma~ers as represent­ed by himself and the National Council of Churches and war-mongers as represented by those who disapprove of the participation of the ministry. however inadvertently and unknowingly, in the international conspiracy to . overthrow the American government.

But we must not blame this earnest but deluded Divine too much for laying down this hard and fast rule as a yard-stick of human behavior in th2se tragic and perilous times. The sermon was not of his own makin,3' and does not represent original thinking on his part. It came from onc-worlders and internationalist consoirators by way of the National Council of Churches which delivers "p3ckaged p.reaching" to its member pastors embodying the general idea but leaving it up to them to dissf'minate it in their own phraseology. and they must pass it on.....,...or else.

N. E. A. "Progressive Educators" Take A Beating At Austin Meet In the Texas state conference on education at Austin recently, ninety per cent o! the delegates are reported to have been good conservative Amer­ic: ms with .!'ound views on education.

The conference was described ac­curately by the Houston Chronicle which said editorially in part· "From the tone of the state conference, one would judge that a majority of Texans are opposed to new phases of Federal aid to education, for fear of getting also Federal control; are disturbed about the weakened curriculum existing in most school! today and want it strengthened accord- The last word in something or other: When Secretary of State Dulle!, in an early ge1ture of con­ce.. s.rion to the Soviets at the recent Geneva Conference of the "Big Four" offered them everything but the ke11 to Fort Knox. ing to traditional principles and are anxious to keep school con­trol at the local level. TI1is is con­tra'ry to what the pro!ession:tl educators want. They want more Federal aid and· more Federal control. It is they who are r8- sponsible for the weakened public school curriculum''. From the Texas conference and forty-seven others, will go delegates to the White House Conference on Education in Washington which con­venes late in November. This il!l the atfair that shou ld be watched carefully because it is there that the National Education Associa­tion and its henchmen will make a fight to the death to retain and ex­tend its Socialistic educational poli­cies and tighten Its grip over the local public school sy!llems of the nation.

Included in these terrorist tactics were threatening letters and tele­phone cans at midnight, the receipt of unordered good's by the truck-load and finally the drawing up of seV"en hearses before her daughter's home with the explanation that they had come for her mother's dead body. It didn't help any either when the In ­ternal Revenue Department denied her the deductions allowed other writers as a matter of course.

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE If There's Anything We Haven't Said It's Because We Didn't Think of It With this edition, we are ending six years of publication. of the Southern Conservative and if anybody thinks the job of pleadmg for restoration of fundamental American principles as we are given to un­derstand them, has been either pleasant or profitable they have an­other thought coming. It is so much easier to do as millions of Americans do and swallow all the swill strutting demagogues dish out. It is far less effort to perform as a trained seal, do as we're told and let the smart boys do our thinking. There is nothing particularly entertaining in poring over tons of government documents and Congressional committee reports which vitally affect the rights, freedom and destiny of every American, their children and their children's children but which the average person would not read on a bet. There is no special diversion in watching the unfolding picture of mass betrayal of the Republic by vast hordes of fellow Americans who,. somehow, have been led to hate the institutions and traditions of this great country which is theirs either by birth or adoption.

The cost of- these paid vacations for lawmakers and their families for the past season has been var­iously estimated at from $350,000 to $1,000,000 but there is no way to get accurate figures because Treasury and State Depar~ment officials refuse to release flgures on the matter for the information of the taxpayers who are footing the bill. The globe-trotting senators and congressmen, also, are not requir­ed to turn in an expense account, to the taxpayers at least, and there is no earthly way of knowing what items are included on their "swindle sheets" as finally totaled up. There is known to be biller re· sentment on the part o( taxpayers in many cases who can aHord neither the lime nor the mpney to take the family to the beach for ten days but are compelled to cough up the dough for summer­long jaunts by highly-paid public offidals, some of whom spend much of the time kicking up their heels in the European night spots. There is always the excuse that ;1~J' .~t~es~~cat~~~~ .. "~~~des~:~~!~~-~~~ lions'' for the information of Con­gress but no intelligent person will buy that because that is what our hundreds of thousands of gov­ernment employes in our embas­sies abroad are paid to do and most of the " information" these junketers claim to be seeking is already on file in Washington. "Sec America First" would seem to be a good slogan for the Con­gress of the United~ates to adopt. From a Seattle buSiness man: And all the while journalistic purveyors of subversive propaganda scoop up shovels full of money graciously donated by the Fords, the Rockefellers and the Carnegies for the specific purpose of weakening the foundations of a great Republic which our forefathers so carefu11y and prayerfully built. Perhaps a logical retort is "well, why do you do it. Nobody 's hold­ing a gun to your bac.k and forcing you to expose corruption in govern­ment, are they?" and that's a good question. The answer is no and we could, of course, quit any time and take up zither playing, bird watching or basket weaving and maybe get the same results. But somewhere back there in ~ fairly honorable and stable ancestry somebody endowed us with a stubborn streak which won't Jet us give up and we have a suspicion we will be trying to penetrate deaf ears and stir apathetic brains to action for six more years if, by chance. our allotted days on earth shall be permitted to extend over that period of time. "Middle-of-The-Roader" Is Only A Fence-Straddler In Disguise We have more respect for an outright '; liberal" if he is actually sincere in what he believes than we have for one who refuses to take a definite stand on important issues and sidesteps firm decisions by declaring himsel! a middle· of the roader, a term which means less than nothing. Christian Economics, a Protestant church paper published In New York, in its October 18th edition, has perhaps the best editorial description of a "middle·Of·lhe-roader" yet presented to the Amfjfican people since this offen· ~ive term was first coined as an alibi for fence-riding politicians. The editorial says, in part: A BELIEF has developed that there is something sacred about keeping In the "middle·of·the-rOad" as between the right and the left. Less effort is being made currently to determine what is right and what is wrong, and more emphasis is being placed on the desirability of steering a course between the two. Apparently a certain virtue attaches to being neither right nor wrong but in between. This is a curio\IS development. Upon close examination it will be seen to reflect an attitude of mind that is less interested in finding the truth than in compromising, apparently with the hope of keeping ,everybody happy. Compromises are sometimes necessary but not as betw;:en right and wrong, not as between truth and error. If com· promises arc accepted under these latter conditions they themselves also arc errors. )(one group says twelve times twelve is 144 and another group contends that it is 160, why not try to discover the facts rather than as· 1>ume the correctness of a middle course that twelve times twelve is 152. 'l'he middle ground philosophy is an absurdity-a plausible course to thc unthinking who are not willing to bestir themselves in an effort to find thcfactsandareeagertoappeartolerantand compromising in the hope of retaining popularity in all quarters. One might believe in the law of gravity, another might den.v it. It is ('xtremcly important to ascertain the facts before one adopts a so­called midctle course by stepping off a cliff in the expectat ion that his fa ll will stop when he i!' half way to the bottom. "Whetlu~r one agrees wi.th 1JOUr 1•iews or not-and occasionally. I don't •-I think it should be con­ceded tJwt you have few equals among present day writers for brilliance. wit and directness in your treatmenr of political issues." What we need is a resolute determination in all quarters to find the right course of action and then to adopt it, and not to go wobbling down the- middle-of-the-road. comforting ourselves that we arc at least hall rh.:ht. H truth lies on one side of the road or the other we are ccrtainly wrong if we stay in the middle. Let's try very hard to rind out on 'vhich side the truth lies and then take our stand with other bra\'e mcn who have been equally diligent in ascertaining the facts. November, December, 1955 Bureaucrats Invent 30 More Ways to Suppress Information A significant step reminiscent of the performance of dictators has been taken in Washington. There have been created ap~ proximately thirty new classifica­tions whose objectives are to keep non-security information about happenings in Washington from being revealed to the American people who have to foot the bill for their salaries. Practically all agencies of gov­errunent, according to a press re­lease from Washington early in November are thinking up new excuses to withhold information from the public, and issuing new classifications of secrecy unheard of in peaCe time h istory. Obviously all this suppression of information is inspired by the wish to keep the American people from becoming aware of the rapid trend o f t h e American government toward interiiational Socialism ar\d one-world government. A stated policy of the United States government calculated to confu.se and fru.strate the citizen to the point where he is ready to start screaming and pulling out his own hair: "We will not provide arms to Israel and Egupt to fight each other but we will entertain requests from each of these coun­tries to provide them with arms for their own defense". Please, James, the smelling salts quick. Big Government Should Be Cut Down to Proper Size There has long been agitation in Washington concerning the heavy re­sponsibility falling on the President o~ the United States and suggestions are being advanced for delegating some of the duties to others. Since President Eisenhower's illness, these discussions have been intensified. As usual, Washington is going at the matter backwards and is refusing to recognize what is wrong before of­fering a remedy. It is not that the job of President is getting too big for one man but that government is getting too big for Its britches, and instead of delegating more men to help run it, government should be whittled down to its proper size. . At least three-fourths of the things that are being done by government now should be left undone and do not have any vestige of Constitul~on~l au­thority for their inclusion w1thm the functions of the Federal set-up. What we need is not more Presi­dential assistants but less government. "That country ts governed best which is governed Ieast."

This time they are writ­ing articles for magazines in an effort to influence the selec­tion of a President. Acheson will be remembered, or rather we should say he can't be forgotten, as a former Secretary of State who refused to "turn his back" on Hiss for a little thing like betraying his country. Evidently publications are not going to be closed to Hiss as they were to patriotic Americans who tried for ten years to tell the White House and the American people what he was doing to his country.

THE SOUTHERN C O NSERVAT I VE Compassion Tempers Our Judgment Of Brain-Washed College Students On October 19th, the Daily Texan published by students at the University of Texas honored the Southern Conservative by devoting a full front~page column to excerpts from our October edition. Before any one gets the wrong impression, we hasten to add that the editors of the Daily Texan did not quote our editorials because they subscribe to our economic, social and political views. Their purpose was to point out how "reactionary" the Southern Conservative is and to prove how out of joint we are with the modern philosophy of the brave new world. They even suggested that the Southern Conservative should be re­named "Mein Kampf" and to confirm the general belief that modern university students are unable to spell "cat" without using two t's, Mein Kampf was spelled "Mein Kamph". The denunciation of our paper winds up with this charge: "Ev ident~ Page 5 If This lsn' t Something To Make the Angels Weep!

The curriculum under which most of them have studied includes few subjects dealing with Americanism and the history and tNditions of the Republic are as strange to them as the philosophy of the Taoists or the priestly rituals of the Tibetan lamas. In most cases the kindly hand of time will stabilize their thinking and cure the tragic defects in their college training. The struggle with fam ily and business problems such as budgets and babies, wages and income taxes and production and employment will cause them to auto· matically shuck t heir ideological diapers and don the raiments of men. Unfortuna tely, in other cases, students will become educator s and perpetuate the vicious cir cle by infil t r ating the imma ture minds of an­other generation of students with the Marxist theories in which they, themselves, have been so thoroughly indoctrinated. If these educationally under-privileged lads hoped to offend us they failed dismally. We might be mildly amused at their line of reason­ing but we would be smiling with tears in our eyes and could never find it in our heart to condemn this ideologically lost generation for being the hapless victims of a conspiracy to capture their plastic minds which was hatched long before they were born. Mature, hard-core subversives inspire our deepest contempt and we will oppose, revile and condemn them until the cows come home but the youthful victims of their perverted philosophy stir us to no other emotions than pity, sorrow and regret. God bless them every one and n\ay they someday, somehow, find their way back. Pardon Us, but We Thought United Nations Was Going to Prevent War Can it be possible, we wonder, if anybody still has the nerve to defend the United Nations and hold it up as an effective organization to preserve peace a n d prevent war? That's what its founders, includ-ing Alger Hiss, promised it would do and it was on this theory that the United States Senate fell for it and approved it and it is purported to be because of its power to main­tain u nity between nation~ that we have continued to pour mtll ions of dollars into its treasury. Not only has it Jailed to do any­thing at all to justify itself and the vast expenditure required to main­tain it but two of its very own members, Israel and Egypt, have already started shooting at each other in preliminary skirmishes which threaten to explode into conflict that could involve prac-tically the whole world in another war. If they can't even keep their .own members from killing each other how, in Heaven's name, are they going to keep non~member nations in line? The plain, unvarnished truth is that the United Nations never has, cannot now, and never will (unc­toin as anytbng more than a front for spies and enemy agents bent on the d issolution of the United States into a one-wor1d govern­ment with all authority vested in agencies directly opposed to the principles of the American Con­stitution.

Page 6 THE S 0 U T H E R N C 0 N SE R'Y AT IV E November, December, 1955 What the Democrats Church and Crown Combine Federal Aid To Education Pry Pole To Enforce Integration? Need Is not Harmony To Wreck Human Happiness The clamor that is going round for harmony in the so--called Dem­ocratic Party and the demand for loyalty to whatever leader it may nominate, is so much hogwash. There is no more forceful ex­ample of harmony, unified think­ing and allegiance to a leader than that to be found in the behavior of a herd of stupid sheep. When the bellwether decides to take off in a certain direction, the whole flock will follow him auto­matically even if he causes them to fall oft a steep cliff and break their fool necks. The Democratic Party has strayed so far from the principles of Jefferson and Jackson that any similarity between those great statesmen and the cheapskates who direct it today is strictly non­existent. They had better pray. not for harmony among its members, but for men and women with suf­ficient vision, wisdom and com­mon sense to nominate once again an American of integrity, honesty and vision who will point that once great party back toward the fundamental American principles which ~astained it until Roosevelt and his Socialist henchmen de­based. demoralized and wrecked it. The Democrats don't need har­mony. They need a fumigating squad with an insecticide spray. Truman Gets His Facts Mixed In His Memoirs Harry Truman was getting along all right with his "Memoirs'' because mostolthosehemcntioned weredcad and couldn't call his hand. However, a hall dozen of those Ytill living came out publicly and said that he had his facts mixed, to put it PO· litely. Former attorney general Biddle was especially irked at Truman's assertion that he, Biddle, had approved Tom Clark for attorney general and had asked Truman to appoint him. Biddle said he did no such thing as he did not consider Clark fitted for the job and would not have recom­mend'cd him under any circumstances. It is easy to understand Biddle's re­tenlmenl in the matter.

While she is reported to have made the de'cision herself, there is no doubt that she was emotionally high-pressured, brow-beaten and intimidated by the Church and Crown in an intimate and private affair, which, under accepted ethics of civilized society, would seem to be her personal business and hers alone. .. Still and all, she has demonstrated a strong character and a conception of duty and responsibility, no matter how misguided, which must COI!J.mand admiration of the whole world. We say ~'misguided" because of the incongruity of a system where the people maintain the pretense of "Royalty" in a country which supports a perverted Socialist government at the same time. In the natural conflict between "Royalty" and "Socialism"-its exact opposite--the only authority the Royal "ruling class" seem to have emerged with is the·power to inflict on its own members the same tyrannical domination over their personal affairs which its ancient kings imposed on their hapless subjects. The power of the Throne in England is comparable to that of the Supreme Court in this country which could not command enough strength and authority to banish a Communist rat like Harry Bridges from American shores but was able to visit its full venom on helpless little children of the South. By the same token, Queen Elizabeth can scarcely wipe her royal nose without the consent of Parliament and Lambeth Palace but by frowning disapproval is able to silently exert full authority of her tinsel crown and prevent her sister from marrying the man of her choice as she, herself, did. Although it is certainly no concern of ours what the people of any other country outside our own, do, the two thin.gs about it all that irritate us beyond expression concern Group Captam Peter Townsend and the Duke of Edinburgh. · We resent the arrogant position of the Queen's snobbish husband, who was able to wangle a good soft bed for himself in Buckingham Palace and latch on to a princely title and then openly objected to a gallant fighter for England even getting his foot in the front door. We regard as disgraceful the official English attitude toward Town­send as a "commoner" unworthy to mate with Royalty even though his brave and fearless feats on the field of battle were unequalled by those of any of his countrymen, while many of the opponents of his marriage to the woman he loved, including the Archbishop of Canter­bury. were care(ully shielding their hides in bomb-proof shelters. Meantime, we sincerely wish for the brave young Princess wh~t­ever measure of happiness she may be able to glean from a sterile existence eternally hedged in by stiff-necked rules of Church and Crown. Southern Governors Say Nothing And Do Less At Alabama Meeting Presumably the Southern Gov­ernors Conference was set up to thrash out economic, social and political issues that vitally affect the well-being of the South and to formulate policies believed to represent the majority sentiment in Dixie. The two most serious problems facing them at this time are the Supreme Court's infamous at­tempt to abolish segregation in the schools and how to combat it and the restoration of the two-thirds rule in Democratic Party nomina­tions for president which was abolished by Roosevelt to enable big city machine bosses to select candidates for president. If either of these subjects were discussed at length or any steps laid down to combat these in­fringements on t h e rights of Southern States in governing in­ternal affairs or re-capturing the South's lost influence in party matters, nothing was said about it in the press. Several of the individual States, of course, have already made plans to retain segregation and they mean to do so, but as to any coordinated plan for group action, there didn't seem to be any. Both issues were gracefully side­stepped and the meeting turned into a guessing game as to which left-wing radical would be nomi­nated at Chicago with such char­acters as Adlai Stevenson, Averill Harriman and Estes KeFauver all getting honorable mention. And one governor even had the monu­mental gall to express preference for Harry Truman's nomination.

The near break-down of the American economy and form of government by Soviet influence has been of no more tragic import than their perversion of American morals. We were amazed to read in a California publication that the special board set up by the Depart­ment of the Navy to review the Eugene Landy case had upheld the Navy's original decision to refuse him a reserve Commission because of his mother's membership in the Communist Party and that the Secretary of the Navy over-ruled this board, after White House con­sultatiOn, and gave Landy a re­serve Commission any way. Since not a word of this action by the Board, and the reversal by the Secretary, had appeared in any regular newspaper so far as we could find out, we wrote to the Navy Department in Washington, to inquire if this report were true. We received a reply confirming that it was true with the explana­tion: "We are constantly on our guard lest, in an attempt to thwart those who would seek to destroy our form of government, we our­selves may jeopardize the very right we are striving to protect." (This line sounds vaguely famil­iar.)

McCarthy and addressed to the President of the United States on last September 21st is, in our opin­ion, one of the remarkable documents of this generation. Although the recipient of repeated insults from the White House, the !enator from Wisconsin proves him­self a man of su.fficient stature to overlook personal indignities in the :Interest of the safety and survival of his country. In this communication, about which nothing was said in the press, he has given the President information con· cerning current dangers threatening the security of the United' States which cannot be ignored by the Executive if the presidential 9ath to protect the Republic against its ene­mies is to be upheld. The mimeographed letter covers five and a half pages of legal size paper and is too lengthy for repro­duction here but it probably may be had on application to Senator Mc­Carthy's office in the Senate Office Building, Washington, D. C. All Parents Should Keep Eye On White House Conference The White House Conference on Education which meets later this month has been heralded as being largely composed of lay­men with a sincere interest in education and presenting all viewpoints. Yet, of the forty-eight State Chairmen shown in the White House Conference's own booklet, twenty-five of them are profes­sional educators. This is not to imply that the rank and file of teachers are not desirable representatives for "the majority of them are conscienti­ous patriotic Americans. But the great danger in having profes­sonal educators dominate the meeting is that they will probab­ly be connected with the Nation- - al Education Association, if not actual stooges of that outfit and there is too much evidence of the NEA's ideological views to doubt that it would be the worst blow to education that could be dealt it, to have them in control. When professional educators wearing the brand of NEA stam­pede a conference <!nd let loose the i r Socialistic propaganda, mere laymen usually get trampled under. It should be interesting to watch and see what happens at the White House Conference. THE SOUT HERN CONSERVATIVE "Accuse The Accuser" Tactics Are Employed Against Speaker November, December, 1955 While They're At It They Should Do It Up Brown Captain Edgar Bundy of Wheaton, Illinois, is a former Air Force re~:c:t:~;~~'tio~lfs ~~~;s~;e ~:P~~~i~ Intelligence Officer.

Umted States ed a large Fort Worth audience under the sponsorship of a local patriotic But Ja111es Reston, of the New York group, in October. Times recently wrote two columns on Because he selected as the topic of his discussion the attempts of Communists to infiltrate American churches, Bundy was subjected to an attack by a local minister as pronounced in its intensity and bitter­ness as many of those he faced in his encounters with the enemy on the battlefield. This attack was not inspired by anything Captain Bundy said but rather by what he might say, since it was levelled against him eight days before he arrived in Fort Worth to make his address. Apparently, it was a sort of vanguard maneuver or frontal action intended to check his advance, weaken his defenses and force him to retreat in confusion. It didn't succeed. His ministerial detractor, whose truculent manner is more sug­gestive of violent brawling in the boxing arena than of spiritual coun­seling at the altar rail, resorted to the tactics currently popular in certain circles where the big idea is not to face and answer charges but to divert attention from the subject by accusing the accuser. In this case, a new angle was added by the simple expediency of disposing of charges before they were made, something on the order of the imaginary action of a jury which turns in 'its verdict before the witnesses are heard or the evidence presented. Captain Bundy was pictured, according to implications in the worthy pastor's comments in his church paper, as a "discredited member of the Fundamentalist wolf pack in America" trying to destroy the churches and, inferentially, a '~vicio us and pernicious liar" because the title of his proposed address was uThe Communists are after your Churches~'. With his background and record in the fighting forces of his coun­try, it was perhaps too much to expect Captain Bundy to remain silent and take this challenge to his integrity lying down, and he didn't. He put the good Brother 0':_1 the grill and browned him to a turn. He then delivered his address which was heavily larded with documented facts from government records, testimony under oath of former Communists and quotations from the Honorable J. Edgar Hoover attesting to the vigorous and intense campaign being waged from Mos­cow to infiltrate American churches, with more or less success, a fact already generally recognized and accepted by all informed, intelligent and unbiased Americans. He made no reference to the testimony of Louis Budenz, a former Communist, who told of equally strenuous efforts to infiltrate the American press and to secure slanted reporting in the case of all anti­Communist activity in this country.If he had added this information, so many persons might not have been amazed at the fancy "headline slant­ing" in the case of Captain Bundy's address in which he was shown as making the "attack" instead of the other way round. Voice of Swedish Marxist Heard Again in the Land The treachery, lying and deceit of those who claimed that they ad­vocated banishment of segregation in the public schools solely on the grounds that it denied the right of equal educational facilities to Ne­groes, have been exposed by the latest decision of the Supreme Court. In projecting further the Socialist views of the Swedish Marxist Gunnar Myrdal-now universally recognized as having replaced the American Constitution as the authority on which our legal decisions are based-ihe Court ruled that Negroes must be admitted to white public parks and playgrounds, including swimming pools and golf courses. The Court, now conceded to respect only the wishes of Negroes and white racial perverts, will next tackle the Virginia law which pre­vents the marriage of whites and blacks and little doubt is felt as to the outcome. Following this latest judicial assault on the rights of the States and the dignity of the white race, as well as that -of a large percentage of the colored population, it is expected that all pretense of racial per­verts that their concern in the matter was in the interest of the educa­tional and cultural advancement of N~groes, will be dropped. After all, it is pretty difficult to maintain the illusion of 11culture" in the case of a black man leering at a Bikini-clad white girl in the intimacy of a swimming pool and there is no instance on record of any one. black or white, receiving a master's degree because of his ability to shoot below par on a golf course. The Communist conspiracy for mongrelization of the white Chris­tian race in the United States has dropped its disguise and emerges in full-fledged horror and degredation. the subject in which he said it was more than likely that Warren might be "drafted". In view o[ the rapidly lowering standards o! political morals which we are witnessing, we suppose It could happen but if the Republicans should do this incredible thing, we think they should go the whole hog and nominate Ralph Bunche as his running mate. Bureaucrats Misplace A Mere Three Hundred Million Bucks For the first, and perhaps the last time, we find ourselves in agreement with a statement made by Senator Hubert Humph­rey of Minnesota who is not given to making remarks that meet with our approval. It was during the consideration of the foreign aid bill just be­fore Congress adjourned early last August. During the proceedings, the Senate was informed that the Eisenhower administration "had accidentally mislaid $300,000,000 in foreign aid funds which was later found by the Senate-House conference committee. It was explained that the in­cident was caused by some gov~ ernment official who, finding himself with a dull day on his hands, decided to change the whole method of accounting for these funds, and in this way this trifling amount was overlooked. Meantime, while they were skittering around trying to locate the funds, Humphrey who usual­ly maintains a record for talking louder and saying less than any of his colleagues, smacked one right over the home plate with this crack: "It's pretty hard to lose three hundred million dollars. You real­ly have to work pretty hard at it. If that is an example of a ~~s~n=~~e~~~!~~~tration, God help Of course some of the humor of the remark was lost in the real­ization that the Democrats would not mislay $300,000,000. They would have given it away before they had a chance to. Hiring of Browder Causes Kick-Back In subsidizing Earl Browder to do research for the Ford Fund for the Republic, Robert M. Hutch­ins was only doing what comes naturally as he has shown a pro­nounced fondness for Communists throughout his public career. But this selection is said to have alarmed some of his associ­ates who fear that this bold choice of Browder will tip Hutch­ins' hand and show up the real purposes of the Fund of the Re­public. They are especially concerned now that the attention of the whole nation has been focused oh some of the strange things that have been, and are still being done, with Ford money.
