If it should be that the will of real Democrats should prevail at the com­ing State Convention at Mineral Wells on September 12 and the party is wrested from control of the Pendergast underworld political machine and restored as a party of principles, it would be a glorious day for the people of Texas. Newspapers and outstanding citizens of the State have urged that this be done and many counties, including Tarrant, Dallas, Harris and others. are sending delegations committed to sound principles of government and opposed to the rule of corrupt big city political machines. It is understood that if they are seated, and the disgraceful scene of 1948 is not re-enacted, they will undertake to influence action to this end. However. being fairly familiar with the strength, resourcefulness and perfidity of the underworld machine politicians who pull the strings which govern the pE'rformance of their puppe~ s in the various States an~ being naturally pessimistic about current polihcal procedure, we are bettmg that the Democratic Party of Texas will not be resurrected as a vital and in­dependent agency reflecting the will cf the p_eople of Texas but that it will continue to function as the personal public1ty bureau of presidents who desire to remain perpetually in power.

SECOND BIGGEST JOB FOR AMERICANS TO ACCOMPLISH Some one has sent us a copy of a publi­catiOn called '·The Adult Student."

From some of its contents, it might be published in Moscow and put out by the Kremlin for it is fu ll of plain and und is· guised propaganda for Socialized Medicine, Negro Social Equality, digs at our Ameri· can system of free enterpise and various other plugs for the theories of Karl Marx. It would seem to us that Americans have a big job before them in eliminating Com­munistic influences from our institutions and when, and if, the Federal government is ever reclaimed, the next task would seem to be an attempt to save some of the churches and convert them to Amer ican· ism.

Wewishtodeny,beforeitismade,thechargethatwe are subsidhad by any special interestsorthatourundertaking is just another scheme dreamed up to attract the support of big business. In our discussions of State and National issues, we shall show no more partiality to the Tycoons of Industry than we shall to the Curs of Labor: In fact, we seem to remember that soma of the biggest business men in the nation teamed up with labor union racketeers in playing ball with the New Deal when that economic atrocity was riding the crest and have continued to stringalongwithitsmoreviciouscounterpartcurrentlyadministeringthegov­ernmen~ in Washington. The courage, integrity and patriotism which must be commanded if the Republic is to survive will not be found exclusively among representatives of big business or leaders of labor unions.

MY NIGHT By the Editor Those of _us who are irrevocably committed to the task of setting the world to nghts are often discouraged when results do not measure up to our expectations, but there are other times when we feel fully compensated for our efforts. I had this fee ling last night when I attended a gathel'ing of young people who have set up a wonderful organization called simply: ''The criminate Minglin~o~t~~~~i~:sE~~~~:~ge the Promiscuous Mixing of Races and Indis· Its purpose, as its name implies, ir, to assist in hastening the realization of the b:~iversal brotherhood of man by erasing all racial and religious lines and to ultimately br~n.g people of ~1.1 colors and creeds into one correlated group with identical socia l, spmtual and poht!cal views. The extensive research which has been done by the group in order to correctly ~lac~ ~ he blame for the disorgani:ted state of: the world where it belongs, is ama:ting and JnSpJnng.

The group has also proved beyond any shadow or doubt that our failure to win the Korean War in the first fifteen days of fighting was due solely to the fact that Lena .Horne· has never been invited to become a member of the Daughters of the Amencan Revolution. • Other factors contributing to wodd delinquency were shown to be those Amer­icans who cantinue to adhere to the ir own religious customs and beliefs and refuse to a~failiate with worl~ federations of churches and also the large number of white people ;u~~ :~es~~r~~~~~~ ~~·i:~~~:opn::,i:~=~~s~~;~o:/roper community spirit that they rc- The '.:ommittee is perfecting a program which it is felt will reduce these evil exhibitions of class hatred to a minimum. As a first step in the movement to establish World Brotherhood by eliminating narrow religious prejudice, the Committee has extended an invitation to the Arch· bish.)p of Canterbury to visit the United States in the near future and conduct revival services at a Holy Roller church in the Ozark Mountains and in order to insure his acceptance, the group has arranged !or his duties as head of the Church of England to be carried on, during his absence, by a member of the House of David. Other tentative plans call for an exchange of pulpits between a prominent New York Jewish Rabbi and an oustanding Christian Science Reader o[ Boston, for a noted Mormon Elder to make the principal address at the annual Campmeeting of Texas Baptists and for the head of the Orthodox Russian Church in Moscow to call at the Vatican for a friendly conference with the P.ope. Members of the Committee were disappointed, but not permanently discouraged, at having the door shut in their faces when they undertook to persuade a group of Nuns--as a gesture of religious tolerance and good will toward other sects and cults­to spend a week doing social service work in a California nudist camp. In spit~ of occasional rebuffs such as this the Committee is making wonderful progress and it is heartening to me to see these forces o{ Democracy go into action in behalf of World Brotherhood as a prelude to Universal Peace.
