Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Retur n of Constitutional Government- Vol. 6 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JUNE, 1955 No.6 Regardless of Who Is Elected President Invisible Rulers Ciovern United States "Mental Health" Plan and Foundation Money Could Be Dangerous Combination Two incidents that could be deeply signiCicantare the suggestion in Wash~ ington that a Menta l Health Com­mission may be named and the an­nouncement in the press that the Ford Foundation has allotted fifteen mil­liondollarsforastudyofthemcntal health of the nation. There is no doubt that this is one of the most important subjects confront­ing the people of thi~ country and one in which thorough research and remedial steps ore necessary. In the hands of ethical medical authorities there is no doubt that the matter will be dealt with to the best interests of all the people. tia}:5t~;1~~~e,s i~~~~'f,:!~~i~~l 1p~~f~~= sion, but, unfortunately, it is also one of the most dangerous callings when engaged in by unscrupulous persons and it is a profess ion that has its share of quacks, and crooks. During World War II, according to information on record in the Report of the Subcommittee of the Senate J udiciary Committee published J a nu­ary 3, 1955, the brainwashing of eight million American soldiers by our own Army and the p rogram of Indoctrina­t ion o[ these yGung men with Com­m unist propaganda, was largely un­d er the supervision of psychiatrists. The most important one ~f these was Dr. Julius Schreiber who was Chief of. the Program Section ot Army Orientation proceedings. This r eport is full of testimony of the torture to which our soldiers were subjected by officials of their own Army in eflorts to force them to accept Communist doctr ine. When the Committee questioned Dr. Schreiber about his alleged member­ship in the Communist Party, he im­pudently replied that he rc[used to "answer any questions from the mo­ment of my birth until 1941" and im­plied that when and if he had been a Communist Party member, it was pre­vious to 1941. All efforts to get more information out of him f3iled com­pletely. Dr. Schreiber is now. or was in January, a practicing psychiatrist in Washington, D.C. and Chairman of ·~Th"'e'"',~ub'j;e'c"~t~of~p•y':'::c:';"hia:7t-r~ is also tied up closely with brain-washing tactics behind the Iron Curtain and is widely used in forcing "confes­sions" from their innocent victims. Some very d angerous bills giving un believable authority to various Commissions and indi vid uals to d e­cide when an American citizen is a "mental" case, have been introduced in many States, the most infamous perhaps being th~ measure introdu<;ed in the Califorma legislature which was only prevented from passing by a lert citizens there who swarmed into Sacramento and exposed it. Take a ''Mental Health Commis­sion" appointed by politicians and fi fteen million dollars spent by some of the specimens in the Ford Founda­tion and God only knows what the results will be. To Break Even at Conference Table Slip Russians a Few Mickey Finns We have the same contempt for Tito as for all other Communists or anybody who is even slightly sympathetic t~ them, but '~e have. to hand it to him for one thing and that IS for staymg sober wlule dealmg with the Russians who visited Belgrade recently. . - . An old Spanish custom among Moscow dipl om~ts IS to get their opponents all lit up like a church and then walk oif With the agreements all i;.~~e~~ ~~f:n~~v~~· have been partly the reason the Yalta and Te­heran conferences turned out so disastrously for everybody except the Soviets. Observers reported that enough liquor was uncorked to float a battleship for the thirsty Americans who, even when sober, were no match for the tricky Muscovites. . But at the big party thrown in Belgrade at the close of the eight· day Conference between Russian thugs and Yugoslav crooks, th~ Yugo­slav dictator and his wife were reported to have drunk nothmg but tomato juice while Moscow's Nikita Khrushchev staggered away from the festivities listing heavily to starboard. If our leaders are determined to waste time and money in confer­ence with the Communists in future, it might be well for them to profit by experience of the past and ply the Russians with liquor, making sure that each of them is slipped a couple of mickey finns. In this way, we might have a fifty-fifty chance to break even at the conference table. Under the strange and bewildering concept of govern­ing processes prevailing today, it makes little difference whether the successful candidate for the post of Chief Executive carries the standard of the Republican Party or wears the Democratic label. And no matter how sound the platform on which he runs; no matter how rosy or appealing the campaign promises he makes to the people and no matter how sincerely he subscribes to his inaugural oath to uphold the American Constitu­tion, he finds that his authority to make majo r decisions involving the d estiny of his country, is -surrendered a t the White House door. From that day forward, a n in .. v is ible maste r stands be s ide him and until he t a kes his final de partu re from the Mansion on Pennsy lv a nia Ave .. nue, he is never free of this mena cing shadow. During the Wilson administration, popular opinion designated CoL E. M. House as the power behind the throne. Throughout Roosevelt's long reign, Bernard Baruch, Harry Hopkins, Sam Rosenman and var­ious other back-stage personalities were labeled as the Rasputins of the New Deal Court. The ghostly hand of the dead Boss Pendergast and the grasping hand of the living Walter Reuther were alleged to have guided the pen that wrote Truman's official decisions. Only recently Senator Joseph R. McCarthy charged that a triumvirate composed of Milton Eisenhower, Nelson Rockefeller and Harold Stassen supply the brain­power that shapes current policies at the White House level. It is true, of course, that the friendsh ip and personal relations of each of these men with their respective Chiefs of State did, and do. have an impact on eXecutive thinking and that they were, and are, able to influence official action concerning routine and relatively minor de­cisions of the office. But it is rank flattery to these amateur advisers to credit them with fhe responsibility for the over-all direction and super­vision which has shaped American domestic and foreign policy since we firs.t listened to the siren voice of the internationalists, veered away from Constitutional procedure and headed toward a one-world totali- , tarian stale. The function of these men has been merely to transmit orders handed down from higher sources much as a messenger boy de­livers a Western Union telegram. Call the· Unseen Masters by any name you will but International Conspirators is as fitting a title as any and it is in this manner that we shall continue to regard them until and unless some red-blooded Ameri­can patriot in the White House dares to reject and repudiate this vicious alien control. To credit any man or set of men with originating the Master Plan under which the American Republic is currently operated and whose objective is the crushing of individual nations, despoiling them of their national sovereignty and subordinating them to a vast super-state with absolute power over all peoples of the earth, is fallacious reasoning which cannot stand up under the impact of factual evidence. The Invisible Ruler whose colors are fast being hoisted on the flag­poles of this and other countries is no one man or clique of men, nor even any one racial group as is so often charged, except to the extent that some racial groups' representation in the World Conspiracy is greater because they are more astute at seizing opportunity than others, more avaricious in their greed for power, more skilled in the art of deception and intrigue and more adept in the pursuits which concen­trate the bulk of the world's wealth in their hands. The Unseen Power that is fast closing in over our own and all other so-called free nations, is constituted of many men in many lands and was born of the innate hatred of regimented minds for any system of government based on Chri~tian principles, the dignity of the individ­ual and the incentive of prof1t in a free and competitive economy. It is the product of twisted mentalities harboring diseased ideolo­gies and is supported by powerful financial tycoons with the over- (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Ameri~ans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE June, 1955 Incipient Marxists at USC Protest Speech by Shivers I When young rowdies at the Uni· versity of Southern CaliCornia pro­tested an invitation to the Governor of Texas to make their commence­ment address, Dr. Fred D. Fagg Jr., president of USC, wired Governor Shivers an apology indicating that the dissenters consisted of a small group notrepresentativeofthatschool Unfortunately, Dr. Fagg's gracious apology did not fuJiy cover the situa­tion at USC which, like most Ameri­can universities, is heavily loaded with specimens of Marxian thinking result­ing !rom indoctrination by their in­structors over a long period of time. Obviously these sordid facts apply to many stn!! members of USC or they would not prevail in the student body, In proof, 135 faculty members at USC later joined with the adolescent Socialists in the protest, indicating their opposition to any speaker unless lle is left-wing or subversive. A few cracked-brain young radicals nt Texas Christian University at Fort Worth aped the USC agitators and broke out in the press with an en­dorsement of their action. President M. 1!:. Sadler also wired the Governor that only a half dozen irresponsible From retired business man in Naples, New York: "As far as the major ills that beset this land of ours are concerned, you are hit­ting the nail on the head with more deadly accuracy than any publication I know of.

" Mongrelization" is what they mean. ~ youngsters with no following were involved at TCU. Objection raised by USC students to the Texas Governor was that he was not "tolerant" and the use of this one word tens the whole story behind the rude and uncouth behavior of these collegiate hoodlums.

Invisible Rulers Continued from Page 1 weening ambition to dominate inte\-national markets and exercise world-wide industrial and financial control. Like all successful movements since the beginning of history the World Conspiracy is sparked by brains and money, the two essential ingredients for victorious achievement in any undertaking by mortal The brains behind this World Conspiracy are contributed by an element of human society possessed of this commodity in overflowing <lbundance but lotaliy bereft of practical judgement. basic understand­ing and plain common sense. This segment of the World Conspiracy may be loosely referred to as the Social Scientists of the world who have enlisted under their banner uncounted millions of crack~brained the­orists in government, in education. in art and literature, in the clergy, in the press, in stage and screen, in labor and in all other spheres of human activity and have welded them into an organized and integrated instrument of destruction before which the forces of reason, sound thinking, decency and morality must give way unless heavily rein­forced by strong regiments of good Americans now sleeping on the job. Money for the World Conspiracy is supplied in amounts beyond human power to compute by internationally-minded groups such as the large Foundations, international bankers and other powerful financial figures whose world-wide investments and far-flung interests have automatically severed their patriotic ties to any certain country and have cancelled out their allegiance to any particular flag. It was inevitable that this unholy combination of warped brains and inexhaustible funds should spawn a shady and depraved cell of International Conspirators pledged to agitate throughout the world­and principally in the United States-for one universal government in which the industrial economy, religious beliefs and social customs of the human race would be crammed into one common mold, with slavery for all men and freedom for none. More than twenty years of constant Marxist propaganda spewed out to the American people by Communist~dominated groups in the East-not excluding tax-supported agencies of government-and which was spread with deadly precision by the subversive transmission belts of radio, press, television, stage and screen and all other channels of human communication including the pulpits of m3.ny Protestant churches, has so thoroughly softened up the American public that ef­fective resistance is gradually crumbling. Couple this anti~American and Godless propaganda with weak ]C'aders and decadent statesmen in Washington who have lost the will to defend a Constitutional Republic bought with the blood of American patriots or to protect it from the enemies who seek its ruin, and it be­comes unDerstandable why .fear and haunting terror have taken up their permanent abode in millions of American hearts. If the charge of invisible rulership over the United States were merely the belief of the editor of this publication, it would be worth no more and no less than the value of one person's opinion, but this charge has been repeatedly made on the floor of the United States Senate by members of that body which invests the statement with a measure of authority we do not possess. It has also been inferentially admitted by a Justice of the Supreme Court who must be regarded as final authority since he belongs in the category of those who compose the brain contin­gent of the World Conspiracy. We refer to Felix Frankfurter who, when asked at a recent Washington cocktail party by a foreigner "who really runs the United States?'' is quoted in the press as having replied: "The real rulers of the nation are undiscoverable." Senator \Villiam E. Jenner of Indiana has time and again on the Senate floor and in addresses throughout the country charged that all- Just to Keep the Record Stra!ght Some of the President's advisers should dig up a copy of the 1952 Republican Platform and let him brush up on it in order to avoid some confusion on his part about what it really did promise. When asked at his press confer­ence about the recommendation of the Hoover Commission that all steam and hydro-electric plants which now supply the Atomic En­ergy Commission be taken over by that agency and the rest sold or leased to private enterprise, the president is reported to have re­called a campaign promise he made "not to wreck the TVA." Following- which the Chicago Tribune obligingly published a section of the 1952 Republican Platform on which the president was elected: "We advocate reduction o( expen­ditures by the elimination of waste and extravagance so that the budget will be balaneed.and a general tax reduction can be made." "We pledge a thoro reorganization of the federal government in accord- From a reader in Baltimore: "I had never seen the Southern Con­servative untit a friend here gave me the May Edition. I must say that you 'out-w1·ite' all the jour­nalists I ever read when it come.t to hitting the nail on the head and calling a spade a spade. Where have you been all my life and what have you been doing?" We have been here, Otere and yonder and have been doing what more Americans should do - peeking over the shoulder of politicians to see what -they are up to. ance with the principles set forth in the report of the Hoover commission which was established by the Repub­lican 80th Congress." "We vigorously oppose the efforts of this national administration ... to establish all-powerful federal socialist valley authorities." "For 20 years the administration has praised free enterprise while act­ually wrecking it. . . . There is scarcely a phase of our economic and social life today in which govern­ment does not attempt to interfere. ... The Republican party will end this hostility to initiative and private en­terprise ... " powerful and invisible masters, whom he designates as the "Elite'' super-government, dictate our national policy. ''No President has been able to subdue this Elite" he told the Senate on April 19 and warned :hat "the strength and dignity of the United States are ebbing away." Senator George W. Malone of Nevada said recel1tly in an interview to the press: "The rulers of this country are an active group of inter­nationalists, rooted in Wall Street, with common financial and blood ties in the counting houses of London ... Investigation of international groups and internationally-minded individuals might uncover the real rulers of this country." Three main objectives of the international bankers, the great Foundations and other world-wide financial interests tied in with the World Conspiracy have already been attained, thereby practically com­pleting their part of the program. These three objectives were: First, the setting up of the World Bank whose principal function is to stabilize the currency of the countries in which these internation­alists operate, thus insuring that their foreign holdings and investments are made safe and secure. Second, the extension of the so-called Mutual Trade Agreements Act which breaks down tariff barriers all over the world and enables these international concerns to ship their products from one country to another without tariff restrictions and restraints. ' Third, the completion and recognition af the International Labor Organization as a world bargaining agency in labor relations so as to ~rovide workers in foreign countries at wages in keeping with the low llvin~ standards of such countries for the benefit of international in­dustrialists in the manufacture of their products abroad. With these three main objectives accomplished, the financial back­ers of the World Conspiracy are leaving the Social Scientists free to complete the over-ali program by the addition of such fancy little frills as H~man Rights, C?enocide, UNESCO. the social mixing and interw J_Tiarna~e of the while and black races and all the other queer little 1deologrcal touches so dear to the hearts of the boys with the tinted lips, mincing steps and high-pitched vocal equipment. The United Nations is the vehicle through which it is proposed to co?summate and make legally binding the program of the World Con­spiracy and when the time seems propitious, the noose will be looped around the necks of free Americans as they are quietly led into a state of humary bondage from which there will be no escape. Unl~ss, in the meanti.me, a Merciful Saviour shall perform a won­dro~ s m1ra~Ie ~nd re-activate atrophied brains in the Senate, infuse the~r slugg1sh mte1lects with the divine spark of understanding and rekmdle the dead flame of patriotism in their calloused hearts. . So far has that great Assembly been lured from the pathway of samty and reason that only the intervention of Providence can guide it back toward a course of courageous action which will rescue the Re­pu~ lic !ron: impending tra~edy by taking the United States out of the Umted Natwns and the Umted Nations out of the United States. . R~d~ing the. ~ountr~ of this nest of international plotters will be ~\:~s~.ilhng a ViCIOUs b11l in Congress by striking out the enacting . In this way, and this alone, can the backbone of the World Con­spiracy be broken. (Re-prints of the above editorial may be had !or cost of printing, $7.00 per thousand. Southern Conservative, 703 Flatiron Building, Fort Worth 2, Texas). June, 1955 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Call It 'Bargaining' If You Will But Our Name for It Is Blackmail The contract between the Ford Motor Company and the CIO Un­ion embodying some idiotic form of guaranteed wages, was head­lined in the press as "A new con­cept of labor-management rela­tions in American Industry." To us it was no such thing. We do not regard either the party presuming to speak for industry or the seli-styled spokesman of labor capable of recognizing any 11American Concept" if they met it head-on in the middle of the road. Never Forget This (N"ew York Daily News, May 16, 1955) Regarding the peace talk being mouthed and the peace gestures being made by the Russian and Chinese Reds, we again print a prediction shouted 24 years ago in Moscow to the students of the Lenin School of Political Warfare by high-ranking Communist, Dimitry Z.

(Editor's note: The statement re­ferred to in the News was made in 1931 when plans were being laid to get recognition by this country. They found Roosevelt a w'eak and willing stooge and in 1933, by-passing the Constitution and Congress. he recog­nized Russia in one of the first "exec­utive agreements'' which were later to threaten the security of the United States O" ~d. through a pers6nal Jetter ol Roose­velt to Litvinoff. Since that date the Communists have done a swell job of "putting the bourgeoisie to sleep.") Never before has it been the policy of this country to give visas to persons under indictment but the Secretary of State managed it for his friend, Owen Lattimore. There·s nothing like having pull, we always say. Public Opinion Molders Fair Down On tbe Job The attitude taken by many of­ficials of State government and newspaper editors in the South concerning the latest pronounce­ment on segregation is very dis­couraging to those who expect firmness and backbone on the part of those in positions of :responsi­bility and who direct public thinking. Too many o( them talk o( 41 pro­ceeding with caution" and 41follow­ing a policy of deliberation'' and "working out the problem of in­tegration to the best interests of both races" and similar drivel. If the rights o( States arc not defended by spokesmen for Con­stitutional government in the South, what hope is there that the Supreme Court won't go fur­ther in violation of this revered principle by dictating to the citi­zen what church he must attend a~d to what denomination he must belong which is just as much within the Supreme Court's au~ thority to decide as is the ques­tion of how our school systems must be operated. What a refreshing contrast to all this namby-pamby, wishy­washy discussion of compliance is the simple, dignified and definite statement of the Governor of Georgia when asked what steps that State would take in "integrat­ing" Negroes with while children .. 0 - Uu-. - sertion that coUld not be misun­derstood the Honorable Marvin Griffin said: "We will continue to operate our schools as we always have." That is the type of courage that red-blooded Americans have al­ways displayed until softened up by years o( propaganda which con­ditioned them to the idea o( regi­mentation by a super-government in Washington, followed by a one­world state. .g~~~·~~~::;h~~~h;~~d~:.~~c"~; _Supreme Court in Belated Discovery tradition that a man does not con~ tribute a lifetime of blood, sweat and tears to the building of a busi­ness and then, at the first chal­lenge of his authority to operate it, step aside and let thugs take over.

England, tells of an eight-ye-ar-old boy. Neil Dronfield, who accidentally fell of! a bridge into fheThamesRiver. A man named Frank Willingale, his wife and four children were passing at the time and saw the accident. For­gettil1g that he was a poor swimmer himself, Willingdale dived in to save the boy. When he began to ftounder, ~~~s.h~:~;i~l~~le jumped in to re.'jctte In the excitement the four children. ranging In age from 2 to 7. leaned o\·cr to see what went on and all four fell in head first. A stranger came along and calmly pulled all seven out o£ the water and left without giving his name. Says Segregation Is a Local Matter Widespread disapproval of the Su­preme Court's high-handed ruling on segregation last year and which re­sulted in thousands of protests to Washington oflicials, is reported to have been the reason for the Court's recent vague and luke-warm order on how "integration" should be put intoe!!ect. While the liberal press has carried largely the views of the left-wing element which approves desegregation in the schools, it is known that sen­timent against it is equally strong throughout the country. The Court's decree on compliance with its earlier ruling, was confusing and contradictory but the gist of it was that this matter should be left largely to local officials in the States. Unfortunately they were a little late in discovering this fundamental fact of American governmental pro­cedure. If the high Court had not been converted into a propaganda machine for promotion o! Socialistic proposals, they would have taken this position at the beginning and refused tofunctioninaficldbclongingex­clusively to the States It is not known if Glmnar Myrdal, the Swedish Socialist and ardent fol­lower of Karll\.Iarx had anything to do with the Court's latest announce­ment, although the Court admitted that their earlier decision was based on a book by The Stockholm Social­ist. An Outstanding American Patriot Dies in Indiana The death of Ruth Pillet of Indian­apolis recently has left a wide gap in the ranks of patriotic" and devoted Americans who are fighting for the preservation of the American Repub­lic. As Chairman of the Un-American Activities Committee of the Ameri­can Legion Auxiliary in Indianapolis Mrs. Pillet introduced a program un­der which the women of Indiana be­came highly informed concerning the Communist conspiracy and how to combat it Mrs.Pittefs<'tctivitieswerenotcon­fined to Indiana and she had become widely known throughout the country because of the circulation of books and publications on Americanism for which she was responsible, in all sec­tions of the United States.

Expert Advice Which Will PrDbably Be Disregard2rl The most glaring defect in the field o( American propaganda for defense of the Republic was point­ed out recently by Karl Baarslag of Dallas, one of the top authori­ties in this country on Communist tactics and methods of infiltra~ tion. In the American National Re­search Report, of which he is edi­tor, he tells of the hundreds of Foundations which have been set up in the East for every conceiva~ ble objective except to combat So­cialism and Communism. Mf. Baarslag did not call any names but he might have added that the Ford, Rockefeller and Carnegie Foundations habitually subsidize groups, organizations, publica­tions and individuals who con­stantly attack the American form of government and bear down heavily on the ble·ssings of the perfect Socialist state painted by Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto. These Foundations also r.1.ake grants for medical research which has undoubtedly been of incalcul­able benefit to humanity but not to the extent that it can off-set the harm they have done to American Constitutional govern m c n t through their contributions to an outright Socialist program over a period of many years. To prolong human life while curtailing_ hu­man liberty js a questionable serv­ke to the American people or to the Republic. Mr. Baarslag suggests that, as an oUset to this one-sided propa­ganda, the rich men of the South­west get together and set up a Foundation for the sole purpose of backing organizations, publications and groups who are striving to preserve the American way of life. uThe dutv of all should not be the burden of the few," he argues in urging wealthy men of Texas and the Southwest to get behind those who are fighting their battles while they carry on their business affairs, play golf or vacation in Europe. Mr. Baarslag has suggested a sound and sensible procedure for the_ men of great fortunes in Texas and the Southwest who want to preserve the American free enter­prise system under which they have prospered beyond their wild­est dreams and fondest hopes but, unfortunately, he is a newcomer to these parts and is unfamiliar with sectional thinking in the Southwest. For some strange and unfathomable reason, the possess­ors of great fortunes in this area of the world seem to feel that their power and money gives them an , Impregnable position which will endure under any sort of economy foq~etting that, under a totalitar­ian government. their kind have been the first to be liquidated in other countries when the Iron Cur­tain was dropped One of the baffling aspects of the situation is that there always seems to be plenty of funds for the generous endowment o( the uni-­versities in Texas and the South­west whe~e students are taught that "Capitalism" is a dirty word and that the ideal form of govern­ment is that in which the State is supreme and the citizen only a small cog which helps to operJI.o its vast machinery.

THE SOU THE RN CONSERVATIV E Old Communist Fronts Never Die They Just Change Their Names When the Southwestern Regional Conference on Integration held forth at the community-supported and tax-exempt YWCA in Houston recently, observers saw in this outfit the ghost of the old Southern Conference for Human Welfare and were conscious of the same distinct odor which attended that defunct subversive group. The Southern Conference for Human Welfare faded out of the picture some years ago when ·an investigating committee of Congress denounced it as a Communist front seeking to serve the aims of the Soviet Union. The old SCIIW was composed almost enUrely of racial deviates, one of the most prominent of whom took a leading part in the recent Houston Conference. His name is James A. Dombrowski, identified last year in sworn testimony before a Congressional investigating commit­tee as having been a Communist Party member who accepted party discipline. Dombrowski, a former official of SCHW was coordinator of the Houston Conlerence and letters were sent out over his signature previous to the meeting stating that it was being arranged by the Southern Conference Educational Fund. However, during the Confer­ence in Houston, Dombrowski was publicly named by the chairman as being responsible for the whole thing. In 1942, Dombrowski's name appeared as a sponsor on the letter­head of the People's Institute of Applied Religion, of which the Rev. Claude C. Williams was a director. PIAR was cited as subversive and Communist by the U. S. Attorney General in 1948 and Williams was cited by a Congressional committee as a Communist Party member. Another old wheel horse of the Southern Conference for Human Welfare and a veteran Communist fronter with a record dating back to the thirties, was Aubrey Williams of Montgomery, Alabama. He showed up at the Houston Conference to act as Chairman at its night session. Williams will be remembered as the principal speaker at the YoWlg Communist League's "Berean Conference," as being affiliated with the Communist Party's Peace Oflensives, the Stockholm Appeal, the Mid­Century Conference for Peace in 1951 and a racial deviate of long standing. Six of the eleven Houston Conference officers are reported to have been affiliated with Communist front _organizations or movements. These include, aside from Doffibrowski, Bishop S. L. Greene and Jolm Wesley Dobbs of Atlanta, Ga.; Rev. J oseph Barth of F lorida; Rev. W. H. Jernagin of Washington and Lula B. White, colored, Houston. Literature sold or given away over the counte;.· during the Houston Conference included pamphlets by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, P ublic Affairs pamphlets and the "Southern School News," a publication financed by the Ford Founda­tion, staffed almost solidly by racial deviates and which highly amused informed persons by recently declating itself an "unbiased objective and fact-finding" service to give factual information on segregation. Only one member of the Houston School Board showed up at the Conference. She was Mrs. A. S. Vandervoort, bell-wether for the left­wing majority on the Board to push "integration." She said it was the "thinking" of the Board that "integration" should begin in the elemen­tary grades. The arrangement, so far as the majority of "liberal '' mem­bers of the Board of Education is concerned, would have no personal connotation and would be strictly academic since they have no children in the Houston schools to be ''integrated.'' Just as "a leopard cannot change its spots nor the Ethiope his skin," neither can an old Communist front hide its identity even though it changes its name, adds some new faces and waves a different banner. There were few intelligent, alert and informed persons who were fooled by the new facade presented by the Southwestern Regional Con­ference on Integration and who did not recognize in it the distinterred and revived corpse of the old Southern Conference for Human Welfare. Senate Asked to Probe Subversive Influence Behind the Court's Decision At long last, a step has been taken in the United States Senate toward an investigation of the Su­preme Court's unconstitutional de­cision on segregation. Constitution has not made any at­tempt heretofore to investigate the shady decision of the Court and the subversive influences under which it acted. After al1, the Senate of the United States is the highest in­vestigating body in this country and when it fails to function, the citizens have no recourse against the foreign element of internation­alists, one-worlders, Communists and racial deviates who obviously dictated the Court's decision. From a subscriber at Dallas: "I am. so glad you had your picture in the paper. Nolo I will be able to recognize you wl1en, and if, we meet in Siberia." Senator James 0. Eastland of Mississippi asked for such an in­vestigation, and charged at the same time that Communist front groups had influenced the Court in this decision. The senator claim­ed that the Court's unanimous de­cision was "based solely on psy­chological, sociological and an­thropological considerations" and not on law. To many Americans, it has seemed incredible that this great body elected to represent the Am­erican people, safeguard their in­stitutions and uphold the written Among those cited in the sen­ator's resolution calling for the investigation, was Gunnar Myrdal ~vho~~v~i:; in ~naf~~~~~ini~~i:l~:~ cision was published in these col­umns last month. June, 1955 Refreshing Example of Southern Statesmallship The Honorable John C. Hart, member of the South Carolina legislature has always been re­garded as a friend of labor and has voted consistently to advance the cause of the working man in legislation before that body. He does not, however, go along with the Unions in efforts to ram anti-segregation down the throats of Southerners and make them like it. V/hen George Meany, pres­ident of American Federation of Labor went on record in favor of barring Federal school aid to South Carolina and other States who "evade the Supreme Court's anti-segregation ruling" Repre­sentative Hart wrote him as fol .. lows: "Through meddling in racial mat­ters which are none ol your business, and is as from labor matters as is religion, embarrass those who try to help the working people in the South. It is dilficult to believe that labor leaders are so stupid as to not realize their asinine actions when they interfere in Southern racial af­fairs. At times, I wonder whether you are seriously interested in the south­ern working people as your foolish babblings f urnish the weapons with which labor's f riends in the South are fought • •.

" The American Brand of Communism in Action Any one who wants to see Com­munism in action should get a bro~ chure put out by the Kohler Com­pany, Kohler, Wis., called Kohler of Kohler News, April edition. A strike by CIO-UA W has been going on at this plant since early h1st year and this publication gives photo­graphs taken on the scene portray~ ing the vandalism of Walter Reuther's Detroit goons who have vainly tried for a year to terrorize the Kohler Company into submission to union demands. Wrecking automobiles of non-strik­ing workers, hurling heavy rocks through residence windows at mid­night, destroying new homes with paint bombs, dousing new house fur­nishings with sulphuric ac id, block~ ing plant exits with "stalled'' auto~ mobiles and mobs o! goons wielding blackjacks, and threatening to strip the clothes off women workers who remained on the job are onl y a few mild samples o! the Moscow-inspired ~:~.!ormanccs indulged in by the strik- We referred to this as Communism in action, but we did not mean the kind that is practiced in Russia, but rather the American brand. While Soviet leaders advocate and promote this kind of behavior on the part of American workers as part of the plan to destroy private industry in this country, they would tolerate a strike over there about as long as it took them to lift their tommy guns and shoot the offenders right between the eyes. June, 1955 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE PageS Church Group Gets All Worked Up We Couldn't Even Call Anybody Over Everything Except Religion An Old Meany If This Passes Since anything can, and usually A press release by the National Council of Churches says that eighty­eight Protestants, Catholics and mem­bers of a minority group have got-ten together and launched a move­ment "for the development of human progress and international peace." To bring this about they have set up a six-point program in which they call on Americans for "a greater sharing of their God-given abundance and potential productivity with other peoples of the world." (In other words we should not only give away what we have but what we hope to have.) Alter demanding "!ull employment through Federal legislation," expand­ed government give-away programs. freer international trade, expanded technical assistance programs of the United Nations, and many other re­quests having nothing on e<>rth to do with religion, they make this pure­ly Socialistic pronouncement: "In a moral universe, the contin­ued prosperity of one nation can only be justified by its faithful and courageous efforts to make com­parable abundance available to all." Karl Marx said the same thing a long time ago, except that he was no hypocrite and did not attempt to disguise his depraved political beliefs as Christian doctrine. The National Council of Churches has not been, and will not be, cited as a Communist front because we don't have that kind of backbone in Washington, but there are few groups or organizations in this country who, with a few sharp political leaders and millions of stupid, weasel-brained fol­lowers, arc doing more to break down Cou.al,.i1u.t.ional governmen · in -t.hi country and turn it into a pure, un­diluted Socialist State, than this morally under-privileged and financ­jally over-endowed bunch of theolog­kal politicians. Eleanor Roosevelt's National Issues Committee organized some time ago to promote National So­cialism in this country, has folded up, burned its 1·ecords and quit. We are not sure why they disbanded -it could be because the job is being so thoroughly handled by representatives of the three branches of government in Wash­ington tlwt Eleanor's outfit saw no use for this supplemental ac­tivity. Abie was aTguing with the stunt plane pilot at the county fair who was charging ten doHars each to take passenge1·s up for a short ride in tile air over the grounds. "Won't you take my wife, Becky, and me up for fifteen dollars," Abie pleaded. Finally the pilot propositioned him: "I'll tell you wh4t I'll do. I'll take you both up and give you the ride of your lives. If neither of you make a sound. ru give you the ride free but if either of you get scand and scream while I am doing the stunts, you will pay me the twen­ty dollars. Ok''? Abie agreed and the pilot zoomed up into the clouds and did nose dives, loop­the- loops and every wild stunt he knew but the1·e wasn't a sound from Becky or Abie. As the plane landed and Abie jttmped out and mn around to the front of the plane the pilot said: "Well Abie, you don't owe me a cent. There wasn't a cheep out of either one of you," and Abie replied: "Yes, but you'll n'ever 1cnow how near I came to screaming when Becky f~ll out of the plane during that ftrst loop-the-loop."-From a San Antonio subscriber. ~ does, happen in Congress, Amer­icans had better watch House Bill 5418 which has been referred to the Judiciary Committee o[ which Emanuel Celler of New York is chairman.

There are scores of organized groups submitting recommendations for adoption in 1956 by the UN which Alger Hiss and his masters would ne\·er have dreamed of suggesting when they launched this totalitarian super-state at San Francisco in 1945. Plans to reduce the United States to the · level of a slave state and the American people to the status of Russian serfs which were set in motion at the London and Stockholm meetings of World Federalists are not surprising for those groups are part of the conspiracy against the American Rep~blic. But for Americans to willingly fall in with such conspirators and give aid to a plot which would nullify the American Constitution in­cluding the Bill of Rights, renounce the Declaration of Independence and make a mockery of the Statue of Liberty, is beyond the power of patriotic Americans to comprehend. Out of all those who are guilty of conniving with the enemies of this country to bring about its downfall, one case will serve to make the point. The American Unitarian Associalion, for '''hom the Rev. Donald Harrington, pastor of the Community Church of New York is spokes­man, has made suggestions for amending the U. N. Charter which, j( they had not carried this minister's signature, might have been mis· taken for recommendations originating in Moscow, so thoroughly do they propose to dismantle the American Republic. The Unitarians, according to the Rev. Harrington, want to see the Uniled Nations converted into an outright World Government with absolute authority over all nations, including the United States. The United Nations, this so-called minister of the Gospel insists, should be based upon law sustained by "collective force with authority to disarm all nations" and the establishment of "world law'' with complete juris­diction over each individual in the member nations. A United Nations Police Force with power to compel all nations to disarm and a "world judicial system" for the trial of orrenders against international laws is a further demand of the Unitarians who obviously see no menace in an International Gestapo whose representa­tives may knock on an American door at midnight, tap a citizen on the shoulder amt·haul him off to be tried by an International Court across the world for a real or imaginary crime. In our opinion, suggestions for abolishing the United States and transferring its sovereignty to a World Government constitute treason against this country and those who make such proposals should be dealt with accordingly. The bill sets forth the things which would be prohibited as "ex­citing hostility" in these words: "Every letter, writing, card, pam­phlet, circular, book, notice or other communication intended ... to incite hatred, hostility, ill-will, contempt, or aversion among indi­viduals solely by reason of diHer­ences in race, color, religion or na­tional origin of such individuals ... is hereby declared to be non­mailable matter and shall not bt! conveyed in the mails or delivered from any post office or by any let­ter carrier." In other words, the only thin~ we could send through the mails would be lovE' and kisses. While it would be an insult to your Congressman to assume that he would vote for it, just to be safe, it might not be a bad idea to put a bug in his ear. Con· gressmen have been known to cast their ballot for some odd leg­islation. The bill was probably written by those groups who are capable of writing a bill like this. It was introduced in Congress by Charles C. Diggs, Congressman from Mich­igan. Diggs is a Negro, incident­ally. When a private employer fi11ds that his bookkeeper is stealh1g money out of the cash register and r:~iving it to blondes, he can fire him and have him arrested for theft. When he finds that his np­resentatives in Washington are confiscating his tax money and giving it to bums in Europe, 11e can't do a thing and is stuck with a dishonest public sen..·ant whose salary he helps to pay. Page 6 ''Super·palriotism'' was deiined by Mrs. Roosevelt as "a clever thing spread in part by the Amer­ican Bar Association" which ap­proved adoption of the Bricker amendment to protect our nation· al sovereignty and engaged in by tht" D. A R. "which opposes the Unite-d Nations." There is one thing of which Mrs. Roosevelt may be assured and in which she may take consolation and that is that nobody in his right mind wi11 ever accuse her of ''super-patriotism" for her coun­try. Rev. Eugene Carson Blake, president of the National Council of Churches told the Associated Press that his organization is con­sideriltg the possibility of sending American church leaders to Russia to t•exchange views with the So­viet Union cLergy." This confer­ence. the Reverend Mr. Blake said, would be aimed at "a just and durable peace," and he added t!tat he felt the ''Lines of commumca­tion ·· with the Soviet should be kept open. They have been kept opett all right and a steady stream of propaganda has poured thro.ugh. tltem 1·ight into many Amencan chtrches or else we would not hat'e a National Council of Churches deeply sympathetic to Sot' iet ideologies. ll looks like tlte history of Sen­ator Vandenberg is being repeated in the case of Senator Walter F. George of Geoigia. Vandenberg was regarded as a sound-thinking and conservative A m e r i can throughout a long and useful pub­lic career. But in the twtlight of life. the internatiooolists got to him and sold him a biU of goods and from that time on, his con­cern was aU for the welfare and security of people across the ocean. Senator George is carrying the ball for the internationalists more and -more. much to the sorrow and dis­gust of his long·time admirers and friends. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Has anybody heard any noise in Washington lately that is reminis­cent of the howls which echoed to high heaven a little ove1· a year ago while dirty Communist rats were still being flushed out of the army, government agencies, universities and defense plant~? And does anybody in his right mind interpret this silence and in­action as indication that Moscow called off the dogs on the day that Senator Joe McCarthy was ''censured"? Is any American so stupid as to believe that saboteurs at Fort Monmouth, for instance, automatically quit stealing military secrets when they suddenly discovered they had defenders in high places? And is any human so naive as to think that the swarm of Soviet sympathizers so thickly clustered in assorted sensitive and strategic agencies of government and in educational institutions suddenly re­formed and became loyal Americans when the voice of a giant was stilled by the yelping pigmy pack in the Senate who were hell-bent on heading off investigations of traitors betraying the American Republic? The answer to all these questions, we believe, is no! It is true that there's an aura of serenity hanging over--the hearing rooms of investigating committees these days; there's a cloying and strangling form of peace which can only be gained through appease­ment permeating the throne-room of advisers to the high and the mighty and there's a smile of contentment on the faces of Americans for Demo­cratic Action and the editors of the Daily Worker. But the same evil contingent of enemy agents who marched in endless processions before the McCarthy, Jenner and Velde Commit­tees and who cravenly covered their cow3:rdly hides with the Fifth Amendment to conceal their acts of treason against their country. are 6till around and still active and we mustn't let any one kid us about that. It is only that they are now able to operate more quietly and carry ori their nefarious activities more effectively since alert sentries have been taken off duty without replacement by other guards. That the Senate "censure" fiasco was a frame-up against the Wis­consin senator in order to halt investigation of Communists and sub· versives in high places has been so well established that it is no longer denied even by the participants in the conspiracy. The desired results were accomplished but it is now time for the American people to evaluate the situation, look cold·blooded facts in. the face and decide what it cost them in safety when their elected leaders deliberately sacrificed the national security on the altar of personal jealousy, hatred and malice. Flanders, Watkins,- Americans for Democratic Action, the Com­mittee for an Effective Congress, the Daily Worker and Moscow won out in the "censure" movement in the Senate but to what extent did this "victory" imperil the safety and security of the nation and the American people? To aid them in arriving at an intelligent conclusion they have only to consider this plain simple fact of history: Eighteen months ago, the exposure of spies and subversives was being prosecuted with firmness and vigor. Today, not an audible official voice is being raised against these enemy agents who would overthrow the American form of go\·­ernment. June, 1955 To have exposed the methods em­ployed in "brainwashing" Americans to soften them up toward one·world government and international Com­munism just at that time might have been embarrassing to the visitL.ng propagandists, and thell" hosts. Sarnoff Uses a Lot of Words to Say Nothing The much-touted program of Gen­eral David Sarnoff for combatting Communism and bringing an end to the cold war, and which has been heralded by Senator Lyndon Johnson and others as a startling innovation in the way of a peace plan, was pub· Jished in full in the Congressional Record of May 11. Sarnoff's proposal differs little !rom others before it except in length. Mil­lions of words have been throWJL to­gether in a document which says nothing. Boiled down, it urges more help and encouragement to those be­hind the Iron Curtain through an en­larged program on the Voice of Am­erica, a project which has been bleed­ing American taxpayers for years in the dissemination of a lot o! tripe prepared by lefl·wingers and which in no sense represents the thinking o!real Americans. An effective, common-sense and practical plan for combatting Com­munism has been suggested many times by Senator Joseph R. ?.lcCarthy, Senator George Malone and others which would get the job done imme­diately and that is to cut off every dollar to any country who trades with Russia and Red China. That's all that would be necessary to bring Communists to their knees but that has been rejected because any suggestion based on common sense is always vetoed by those in authority. A sixty·year-old woman in Houston was injured and had to be taken to the hospital recently when a three-wheel motor scoot­er she was riding swerved sharp­ly causing her to lose control and throwing her to the pavement.

During the recent trip to Texas, it was observed that speakers who have been accused publicly of Communist front affiliation were noticeably absent from their program. "Not .that tj1ey were not of the same mind as those who have been cited for they probably are or else they would not be speaking under the sponsorship of the Friends Service Committee. No amount of whitewash can conceal the fact that the-cause of Socialism has been given a strong impetus by that group, through the speakers who ap­pear on its programs.

The uemergencu evacuation" in Washington which somebody fig­ured out in which the heads and key personnel of 30 Federal agen­cies will disappear completely for two or three days will cost the tax­paner an estimated half million dolla1·s. This wouldn't be so bad if it were not just a temporary ar­rangement. Considering the gullibility and stu­pidity of some editorial writers for Jarge dailies, it is not surprising that the American people as a whole have 1ittle or no accurate information about subversion and organized move­ments to completely abolish American institutions and customs in favor of totalitarian ideology. Many of these papers, for instance, have recently fallen for the line about UNESCO being "exonerated" and b•­ing given "a clean bill of health" be­cause some brainwashed committee reached this decision. UNESCO is exactly what the Am­erican Legion said it was at first­" determined plotters who wish to de­stroy our way of life, capture our wealth and enslave out people." The objectives of this outfit are clearly set forth in its literature writ­ten in language that can't be mis­understood. When any group or organization changes its opinion of this atheistic and anti-American outfit, it is no indication that UNESCO has reform­ed but proof that such group or or­ganization has merely succumbed to UNESCO propaganda. Attempt Made to Wreck Our Immigration Law Proposals for• wrecking many of the security provisions of the McCar­ran- Walter Act, the immigration law which was passed after five years of conscientious study of the subject, have been sent to Congress by Pres­ident Eisenhower Congressman Francis E. Walter of Pennsylvania who, with the late Sen-ator McCarran is author of the law, will apparently oppose the White limtse.. recommendations all down the line, since he immediately referred to them as part of the general ef­fort being made "in some quarters to discredit the basic immigration law of the United States." The proposals from the White House, which were obviously based on data prepared by Franklin D. Roosevelt who constantly advocated letting down the bars to European un­desirables during his long stay in the White House, were described in the preamble as based on a "great human­itarian effort for relief of tragic vic­tims of the post-war world." The suggested changes requested by the President would revise the law so tbat unused categories of eligibility with specific numbers alloted to each category, could ·be used by others when these specific categories did not have enough applicants to fill them. As an illustration these unfilled cate­gories might be used to admit or­phans on a worldwide basis, the Pres­ident said. Congressman \Valter, however. im­mediately pointed out that the Pres­ident must not be using current fig­ures since provision had been made in the law to admit 4,000 orphans clinics, and almost limitless funds for and there had only been 713 appli­foreign handouts.

Pagt8 Two Good Americans Decide to Team Up Two grand Americans were welded into a family unit when Mary Elizabeth Robey of Tulsa and John Howland Snow of New York were married recently. Mrs. Robey was active in Pro­America and Mr. Snow is well known throughout the country as a lecturer and author. With the late Congressman Paul Shafer of Michigan, he was co-author of "Turning of the Tides" a book widely popular in educational cir­cles and used as a text-book of information concerning Commun­ist infiltration of the American educational system. John Snow is what may be termed a citizen of the world in its higher meaning and not to be confused in any way with the des­ignation as it applies to· current one-worlders and internationalists. He has traveled all over the world and lived abroad for many years where he acquired first­hand knowledge of foreign gov­ernment procedure, ideologies and propaganda methods and other valuable informatiort' on whi'ch he bases his brilliant lectures and which strengthened his opposition to entangling alliances of his own country with foreign Socialist states. We wish them much happiness. The Sheriff of Bexar County, Texas, announced at San Antonio that he is going to install televis- ~ ion in the county jail as he be­lieves it will have a good effect on prisoners and influence them not to commit crime when they get out. Maybe so, but many times it has the opposite effect on us. Some of the programs make us want to go out and commit a crime -preferably against the sponsor. .., American correspondents in London write in glowing terms 6f England's growing prosperity and point out that there is a surplus of almost $500,000,000 in the British treasury. And the U. S. Treasury is almost $280,000,000,000 in the red because we keep shoveling millions to foreign countries, in­cluding England. No wonder the British regard us as fools. "When you tell the government: 'I am willing to enter the Social Security system', the prison gates close behind you with a bang. T1te government throws away the key. You have elected a rendezvoM with slavery and you cannot es.­cape."- Marjorie Shearon, Wash­ington, D. C. In view of the highly organized and integrated conspiracy against the United States designed to turn it into a totalitarian state, and which any person with minimum intelligence realizes does exist, there are certain rules that must be followed. Good Americans will not attend movies produced or acted by Hollywood Reds. They will protest to the station agninst any television or radio program of anti - American propaganda. They will refuse to attend a church where the minister preaches the social gospel and advocates mix­ing the races and above all they will not contribute any money to such churches. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Some Interesting Sidelights on High Society in Washington D.C. There was quite a lot said in the press about the failure of highly respected and honorable members of the United States Senate to re· ceive invitations to exclusive White House Social functions. In fact, pink press reporters have played these "snubs" up in their smear tactics against those who were the recipients of such slights. There has been practically no publicity, howe\·er, about who IS getting bids to inner-circle 'White House Parties these days. As a matter of fact, so carefully has the truth about the amazing and unbelievable new social code of the Whitz House, together with its guest list, bzen withheld from the voters in the hinterland that such in­formation practically ranks along with such top-secret and classified documents as the records in the Peress case. The editors of one publication, however, unable to refrain (rom boasting, have not been so concerned over voter reaction or popular revulsion, and have told all. This is a publication called ''Ebony" and is a magazine published by and for Negroes ~ith a wide circulation in this and other countries. In a revea1ing editorial with a four-column head titled "Alter Pro­tocol to Admit Negroes to High Society," the editor tells how ''under a new social order" a Negro man has been selected to check and screen names of persons who are to be favored with invitations to social func­tions -at the Executive Mansion on Pennsylvania Avenue. Although named as an "assistant" in such soCial matters, the editorial intimates that much is left to the discretion of this colored man whom it calls "Mr. Washington." The editorial explains that while Negroes are invited to all func­tions according to their· rank, there are occasions when there are not enough of them holding high-rahking jobs to have full representation. In this case, the editorial says, "rules of protocol are broken and Ne­groes are admitted to functions for which. AS WHITE PEOPLE, THEY WOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED." (Emphasis ours). It is pointed out that another responsibility of "Mr. Washington" is to pair off unattached guests for specific parties. To illustrate the point, the editorial points out, that at a White House dinner party some time ago a Negro woman named Carmel Marr was assigned a white Commissioner of Commerce as her dinner companion. "On an­other occasion 'Mr. Washington' discovered his dinner mate was a Southerner," continues the editorial and "I've often wondered if she knew I was a Negro," he is quoted as saying. "Mr. Washington" is quoted in the editorial as having said that at one White House dinner, a "male connoisseur of women" picked four Negro women as "the most beautilully gowned women present" and adds gleefully: '!the first white woman picked was fifth." In another editorial, it tells of Negro guests in the White House sleeping in the Lincoln Room and being put up in Blair House and con­cludes with this paragraph: ''Negroes are now invited not only to large receptions, but also to private cocktail parties, formal dinners, buffet suppers and after-the-ball gatherings." During a "social season" approximately five hundred Negroes are the recipient of invitations to White House affairs the editorial concluded. Woman Member ofT ex as Senate Is Given Its Highest Honor Mrs. Neveille H. Colson, Sena­tor from Texas' Fifth district and whose home is in Navasota, was the recipient of the h ighest honor which the Senate can bestow when she recently became the second woman in history to be named President Pro Tem of that body. Beautiful, talented and with a mind which operates like a steel trap, Mrs. Colson has served sevw enteen years in the Texas legisla­ture, first as a member of the House and later in the Senate, and is the only membe!' of her sex serving in that capacity. As fresident Pro Tern of the Senate, Mrs. Colson will act as Governor in the event the gover­nor and lieutenant-governor are absent from the state. With a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of govern­ment, Mrs. Colson is that rare type of woman lawmaker who is not out to reform the world or clutter up the statute books with crack-pot social experiments but rather to contribute her part toward the en­actment of sound legislation which advances the best interests of all the people ol her native state. An Honest Confession Is Good for the Soul The ultimate objective of the CIO was set forth clearly by Ro· bert Minor at the time the Po­litical Action Committee of CIO was set up in 1948. Incidentally, Minor was one of the founders of the Commu­nist Party in the United StateS. Regarding the future aimS of PAC Minor said: HWe want the labor move­ment to obtain physical and ideological domination of this country. By physical control, we mean the governing power-the power to make decisions and enforce them; the power to di­rect any Army and Navy; the power to control industry; the power to say who shall be in jail and who shall be out; in other words, political power. And there is no political power except complete political pow­er." One-Worlders Come to The Bat in Florida A bill was introduced in the Flor~ ida Legislature at its recent session which was captioned an act "to pro­hibit the favorable teaching or pre­sentation of one-world government, Socialism, Communism or any othel' anti-American doctrines in the schools and colleges in the State of Florida." This was a plain statement of intent simply to protect the American Re­public from anti-American doctrines which seek to destroy it. It passed the Florida Senate by a vote of 29 to 7 but was killed in the House committee by the Florida School lobby, assisted by the" Gover­nor of that State, LeRoy Collins, wh() happens to be a member of the United World Federalists Don't tell us this one-world con­spiracy is not organized to the last degree when it can reach clear across the country and put its forces in oper­ation to kill off a measure designed simply to prevent the infiltrati6n of American schools and colleges with anti-American propaganda. Something Better (From Odessa, Texas, American) The Republican Party, thro\lgh one of its top level spokesmen, has virtu· ally admitted that it is impotent. Vice­President Richard Nixon has announ4 ced that the GOP cannot win in 1956 without Dwight Eisenhower as its presidential candidate. This is deplor­able news. If it were true, it would mean that the Republican forces are so complete­ly geared to the strong man concept of government, that defeat looms if a man of greater ability and dedication to principle were to put in an <~ppear- Actually this is the dictator theory. "Our leader" i s the only man who can handle the situation. This Is in vio­lation of the American principles ot representative government. ·we cannot share Mr. Nixon's gloomy foreboding. To us, the GOP would look like a better bet if it would nominate someone as a candi­date who had not already trafficked with the internationalists, propounded a who!~ series of costly collectivist schemes, and generally gone back on its platform and campaign pledges. The only segment of the Republican Party with vigor and fight left in it, is the Right Wing which wants to re­turn to constitutional government. American independence and the heri­tage of free men, bequeathed us by our founding patriots. The Dewey school of joining up with the New Deal-Fair Deal policies in order to enlist Democratic support is as an­cient as compromise, and as unprin­cipled as Benedict Arnold. Further, it is so old, it's tired. The . usefulness of the Republicans will be completely nullified if they insist on propounding the same type of universal social experimentation advocated by their predecessors. What the country needs is a change from this socialist trend. This is what Eisenhower promised, as a crusade when he ran for office in 1052, But the crusade petered out once the vic­tor changed his address to Washing­ton, D. C. The two-party system, which virtually guarantees change, is being sacrificed for the "we must win at any cost" philosophy. There is a powerful Right Wing In the Democratic Party, also, which is more to be relied upon than the fluc­tuating fanatics who inhibit the cast. ern seaboard and whose political be­liefs can be summed up in the phrase: "Tax, tax, tax; spend, spend, spend; elect, elect, elect." Besides, the important thing is the freedom of the country, and not the name of the political party in power. Whichever party grasps this concept and adheres unflinchingly to it, will carry the day. Eisenhower is not only not the indispensible man; he will become a liability to Republicans If they insist on using him. The people want something better than his poli­cies.
