Transcript -THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Pleod for o Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 12 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, OCTOBER, 1961 No. 10 IT'S TOO LATE TO WARN ABOUT LOSING THE COLD WAR BECAUSE WE'VE ALREADY LOST IT American People Are Guilty of Criminal Negligence In Their Duties As Citizens In pondering the pitiable State of the Union, we can but wonder what the American people are thinking of to have allowed the once strongest, most powerful and invulnerable nation on earth to descend to the low status to which it has dropped. Originally, we were a proud, patriotic and independent people deeply grateful to a beneficient Creator for endowing us with the richest blessings within His power to bestow and would have fought to the death to keep them. And yet we have now become so brainwashed by anti-American propaganda which has deluged the nation for a quarter of a century that we have allowed midget-brained politicians in Washington to fri t~ ter away our priceless rights and freedoms , dissipate our substance and intimidate us to the point where we actually seem afraid to fight back in defense of the precious heritage which is rightfu lly ours. We had the greatest form of government ever devised by human mind, a Constitution conceded to be without peer among governing documents of the world and more freedom than was ever accorded to a sovereign people in the history of organized government. But we have let pin-headed intellectuals and pipsqueak politicians who have no practical knowledge of anything and who would starve to death if pried loose from the public teat and forced to earn a living in a competitive field, take over the administration and policy-making functions of government and wreck our free enterprise system, mutilate our Constitution and rob the citizen of those inherent rights and free~ dams without which he has no dignity, no self-respect and no man~ hood. There should be a National Day of Atonement set aside in which the American people go down on their knees and ask forgiveness of the Divine Creator for their criminal negligence as citizens and seek to make restitution by pledging their word to begin anew and clean~ out the cess-pool of corruption In Washington, sweep out traitors in the three branches of government and bring about a return of sanity, morality and common sense in the transaction of the nation's business. OUTLOOK FOR BETTER GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN MATERIALLY IMPROVED Association with great men au~ tomatically enriches those who en­joy such association and on this basis, we are sure that the Pres­ident of the United States is now i.n better position to discharge the heavy responsibilities which attend his high office as Chief Executive of the nation because of having re­cently been permitted to bask in the presence of a man whose life has been a model of propriety and good citizenship and who is a noted authority on matters of gov­ernment. Press reports informed us that the President had the rare honor of entertaining a renowned celeb­rity on his yacht recently who no doubt was able to give Mr. Ken~ nedy much valuable advice and wise counsel in affairs of State and make suggestions of inestim~ able benefit to the Republic In the 'POOR WHITE TRASH' ARE FAR SUPERIOR TO 'RICH WHITE TRASH' As long as we can remember the "poor white trash of the South" have been the objects of scorn and abuse and have occupied a very low estate in human society. But changing events of modern history have taken most of the stigma off this segment of our peo­ple and transferred it to another class of Americans who have dem­onstrated their right to first place in gutter society. They are the "rich white trash of the North" whose utter lack of pride, self respect and personal fastidiousness in choosing their as­sociates and in flouting convention and violating color lines, automat4 ically relegates them, in the eyes of decent people, to the bottom of the social heap. troubled times ahead. The celebrity was Mr. Frank Sinatra of Hollywood. It is o heort-breoking experience when o country hos been defeoted by the enemy but if its people hove stood solidly together ond fought with their lost ounce of blood, sweot ond teors in its defense, there is something ennobling ond glorious even in defeat. But when o notion is betroyed and overthrown by its own leaders, shome, dishonor ond despair ore added to the humiliotion of its conquered people. If the danger to the United Stotes were posed only by guns, tonks ond nuclear missiles in the honds of the enemy, there would be less to feor because Americon fighting forces ond equip· ment ore vostly superior to the military resources of the Soviets in spite of oil the spurious ond blustering claims to the controry. We could eosily whip the foreign enemy but domestic foes are doing us in. For years we hove been en· gaged in a Cold War which was beinq fouqht with lies, propaganda and treason and the So'tiets ha'te won it. So, let us talk no more about winnin the Cold War because we've already lost it. Instead, let us now decrare another Cold Wor led by the people of the United States to recop· ture our lost sovereignty ond freedom. But In order to win this one, we will first hove to whip Woshington and It will then be duck soup to defeat Moscow. No nation has won a war, Hot or Cold, which has lost its freedom and we are losing ours, day by day. We first started losing the Cold War on the day when we ac~ corded recognition to the Soviet Police State and since then, we've been losing it, battle by battle, right up to this good hour. We lost a battle when Presidents of the United States started comb .. fng the ideological dregs of human society for their advisers, drafting the services of every wild-eyed Marxist in the country and turning them loose with full authority to start chiseling away at the magnificent ~overning structure of a Republic which had inspired the envy and Jealousy of every weak and decadent Socialist country in the world. We lost another when the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches of the American government were persuaded to relinquish their Constitutional authority and surrender it into the hands of Invisible Rulers allied with the World Conspiracy against the United States and without whose sanction no high-ranking national leader dares to take official action. We lost another when members of the United States Senate, with two exceptions, walked blindly into an enemy trap by approving the Charter of the United Nations, conceived in Moscow, executed in San Francisco by Soviet agents and diabolically planned to serve as the medium by which the American Republic is to be dismantled, its sov .. ereignty surrendered and its citizens conscripted as faceless slaves in a One-World Communist State. We lost another when Communist propaganda was permitted to so thoroughly permeate the United States that our Chief Executives, lawmakers and other high governing officials were persuaded to abandon ~~~~~~~:~ ~~~~c~~ti~~i.~c~~~s~~p!~;0~e:!n ~~a~~~~; t~~~n n!w~e:~ editorial views in the interest of pro-Communist ideology; when thous~ ands of educators in our schools and colleges instituted indoctrination ~~;~a;;;i~:~e~;?r fe~~f~~a~h~~~~~si~!~!n d~~~!~~~n~f t~0 ~~c~~c~~~s~l of Karl Marx and highly organized religious groups decided to throw. (COntinued on Page 2} Millions of Americans Think it - The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE AMERICAN PEOPLE MUST FACE COMMUNISM WITH SPIRIT OF '76 "Adolph Hitler's propaganda technique was predicated upon the repetitious assertion of big lies; lies that they were so big and repeat­ed so many times that they were accepted in Germany as funda­mental truths," says Clarence Man­! on, noted radio commentator and recognized ~s one of the greatest rConstitutional lawyers of this cen­tury. ''Fortunately for the misled Ger­man people, Uncle Sam forgets quickly," Mr. Manion added. "But our Communist conquerors will not be as generous with us as we were with the defeated Germans and Japanese. On the contrary, should the Communists take over the United States, the cruelties and tortures that will be inflicted upon us will be ruthlessly continued for a thousand years. "We know ever so many things that aren't so about Communism and all of them are reflected in our stupid but stubbornly persist­ing foreign policy that continues to go from bad to worse, fueled by basic false assumptions concern­ing the nature of Communism and how to deal with it. "For the political administrators of our foreign policy - Democrat and Republican - the evil of Com­munism has developed into an in­dispensable convenience which justifies gross mismanagement, wanton waste and a proliferating bureaucracy that operates under protecting screens of secrecy which are called security regula­tions. "For power-hungry bureaucrats and starry-eyed One-Worlders who are determined to sink the last shreds of our national sovereignty into an unchartered sea of Inter­nationalism, the menace of Com­munism has been a veritable God­send. "But, for patriotic Americans, these officially perverted concepts of Communism are the polished in­struments for self-destruction. "The belief is held by many Americans - and the official for­eign policy of the United States reflects it - that Communist gov­ernments are not necessarily a menace to the freedom of this country or to the peace of the world: and that it is entirely pos­sible for such a Communist gov­ernment to be a peaceful, orderly and constructive member of inter­national society. "If these fatal misconceptions are continued under the leadership and encouragement of the present, or any, Administration, then our early and comolete surrender to the tyranny of International Com­munism is as certain as tomor­row's sunrise. "The transparent falsehood of these popular and official miscon­ceptions concerning Communism is now covered by a crust of com­placent indifference on the part of a great majority of the American people. If we have deliberately lost the will to resist the Communist conquest of this country, then we should quit ~oing through expen­sive motions to the contrary, which THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Oelober, 196>t 'Little Washington' Is To Be Set Up In Heart Of Ft. Worth As if they were not reminded enough of the curse of centralized government already, the people of Fort Worth are to have the blight of a "Federal Center" right in the heart of town. The U. S. expects to spend $20,- 000,000 of the taxpayers' own money to build a vast edifice to house more than 2,000 govern­ment workers all in one building, this further carrying out the idea of "centralization." It is not enough that they should be scattered all over town - they must all be gathered together in one imposing whole so as to im­press the peasantry with the force of our powerful and far-reach ing Federal octopus. It is understood that the ulti­mate aim is to get these "Federal Centers" located in all principal cities of the United States. May the Lord help us! According to Inez Robb, patriots in fighting Communism are really opposing "the evolving and social economic system of the 20th Cen­tury that would insure a squarer shake for all citizens rather than a lucky few." Khrushchev describes Communism thus too but it sounds a little odd coming from a column­ist drawing pay under the Amer­ican free enterprise system. And the fact that such views are pub~ lished in reputable American pa­pers is alarming in the extreme. One of the most frightening ru­mors afloat - and we pray that it is just a rumor- is that the Amer­ican State Department has already prepared the terms of the surren­der of West Germany. Naturally, we should not recog­nize Red China but if it makes sense to continue to give recogni­tion to Red Russia any more than to Red China, we can't see it. Both are outlaw nations built on human slavery and it is a disgrace that we should recognize either. From a physician in Seattle: "Live a long time, Sis, and con­tinue to keep the crooks uncom­fortable." only add the vice of hypocrisy to the surrender. "But, before we do that we should frankly face the truth about the evil we are inviting to take over. A place to start this truth­facing operation is in a sp~ech J. Edgar Hoover made to the Nation­al Convention of the American Le­gion. 'We are at war with the Communists and the sooner each red-blooded American realizes that, the better and safer we will be.' "What shall we do about it? The first thing to do is to scrap our tranquilizing misconceptions about Communism and face this diaboli­cal enemy with the courage and spirit of '76." From an American in Suginami, Ku, Tokyo, Japan: "You are doing a great work there in presenting the true facts about the Commun­ist conspiracy. All that I read about your work is encouraging." From an Italian group in Rome, Italy: "We would be most grate• ful if you would give us informa• tion about 'Right' groups operat­ing in the U.S.A." the power of the church behind Moscow's plan for dominating the world; and when prominent individual citizens, large Foundations and other influential leaders of public thought including radio, television and movies, succumbed to the Communist line and set up a subversive transmission belt which has projected this poisonous philosophy into the horne of every citizen of the United States. We lost another when our highest military authorities In the Penta• gon, backed up by the President of the United States, in effect, put a stigma on patriotism and proclaimed loyalty to the American Flag and the Republic for which it stands as a punishable offense by de· rooting Generals in the Army who zealously sought to defeat the Com· munist menace by informing their troops of all phases of th is insidioul foe and to inspire the men under their command with the high ideals of Americanism. We lost another when the President of the United States perverted the original meaning of the First Amendment to the Constitution which provides for freedom of speech by removing censorship of Soviet litera· ture coming into this country and thereby opened up the mails to a flood of Communist propaganda which is pouring in on the American people in such proportions that the postal services are reported to be swamped. We lost another when elected officials sworn to uphold the Con­stitution of the United States dealt a body blow to this document and to Constitutional Government through a massed assault on the Rights of the States and, at the point of a sword, denuded these basic units of the Federal system of every vestige of authority in the conduct of their own internal affairs. We lost another one when cowardly and yellow-livered politicians in both Houses of the Congress of the United States pervertf!d and de­famed the legislative process by voting labor union racketeers into a position of such powerful magnitude that they not only have a strangle hold on the national economy but can cause top-bracket government officials to tremble from those in the White House on down. We lost another when members of the Congress of the United States were led into prostituting the taxing powers of that body which provide only that taxes shall be levied to support the legitimate cOst of the American government and started financing outlandish projects in every corner of the earth from luxury hotels in India to outdoor privies in the Philippines. (This un-Constitutional and indefensible. ac· tivity was undertaken under the name of "foreign aid" and on the specious theory that we were thus winning friends and influencing people when, as a matter of fact, there are not more than a half dozen countries which are being supported by American taxpayers who would not shoot us in the back at the drop of a hat.) We lost another when our elected public servants discarded the basic principles of "government of th~ people, for the people and by the people" and set up a system of class legislation for the benefit of special groups whose votes they hoped to reap in their never-ending struggle to hold on to their seats in Congress. We lost another when Washington turned its back on the Monroe Doctrine and allowed the Soviets to set up their government in Cuba, missile bases and all , within less than a hundred miles from American shores. (American taxpayers are being forced to help finance this Soviet government through donations of money which are being sneaked to Cuba by way of the United Nations.) We lost another when the Supreme Court of the United States stepped down from its lofty position as an adjudicator of legal cases and an interpreter of legislative enactments and set itself up as an arbiter of social questions and as an agency for the dissemination of propaganda generated in Moscow dealing with racial mixing in the U.S. South. We lost another when four consecutive national administrations refused to remove Communists and perverts from the State Depart· ment in the face of overwhelming evidence that that agency is honey· com~ed wi~h subversives who have a major part in shaping American foretgn pohcy and who, when the heat was turned on in such propor .. ti.ons that. a few Communist agents had to be removed, gave them bigger assignments in American embassies abroad or in the United Nations. We ~ave lost another every time our striped-pants diplomats have engaged m conferences with the uncivilized gangsters from the Kremlin ~ho are utterly lacking in reason, honor or morals and when our Pres• ~Ye~~~~-~v; !~~~~~t t~~i~f~~~c~~7.ni~t~n~h~heaf:~s~~~~:a;~e~h~ou~:~a the Sovtet Umon. All thes~ and a thousand other battles of the Cold War were lost by the Amencan people.

In add1t1?n to losmg these individual battles, we Unconditionally Surrendered m the Cold W~r when. the President offered to turn our armed forces over to the. U~uted Nations and entrust American security i~ai~~ ~e~~~ ~!;r~ ~~he%si~~ 3nt~:'~~li~e~r§~;i::.tion completely dam~ October, 1961 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 1 -After Spending Billions For Defense President Would Scuttle Armed Forces Thoughtful Americans were very properly alarmed at the passage of S. 2180 by the Senate of the United States on September 8. This measure was called the "Arms Control and Disarmament A~t" and if it did not set up the machinery which would grease the sktds by which we slide into One-World government then the defini­tion of the bill was very misleading. On page 17591 of the Congressional Record of that date, this definition of S. 2180 is given: The phrase "Arms Control and Disarmament" includes the elimination, reduction, control, limitation, inspection, veri­fication or identification of armed forces and armaments of all kinds under international control or to create and strength­en international organizations for the maintenance of peace. The bill provides for the setting up of an Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and Disarmament "who shall serve as the principal adviser to the Secretary of State and the President on arms control and disarmament matters." It also provides for the appointment of a Deputy Dir'ector and four assistant directors and a General Advisory Committee of fifteen members, all to be appointed by the president. When the measure got to the House there was a lot of oratory ~1\d a few teeth were pulled out of the bill such as changing its title to the "State Arms Control Agency" but it was passed also by that body and an appropriation of ten million dollars voted to finance the , .agency's first year of life and in conference committee the title was r-estored. A proviso was finally added that no action toward disarmament "might be permanently concluded without the prior approval of Con-r:~ f~~·te~h~~~t ~~~y m=~~~~~~es~iss~~~~~~~~ ~~eus:~e;f w~~?Jr~s:vehar~~ fused to even discuss disarmament at this time when the enemies' guns are practically pointed at us and billions of dollars have been ' tucacted of taxpayers to put us in position of defense against this enemy. Certainly this is no time for the supposed "defenders of the Republic" fn Congress to talk about disarming when they have been talking themselves hoarse, and very properly, about arming to the teeth. A lot of people saw nothing worse in the bill than a new com­mission to be added to the festering bureaucracy in Washington which would give the President authority to appoint more people and spend more money. But the President's speech to the United Nations in which he advocated world disarmament and a treaty to this effect with other nations, (in the face of the fact that a treaty with Russia on any subject any time is not worth the paper it is written on), and further indicating we would be willing to trust our security to a Police Force within the United Nations, is cause for fearful apprehension in our opinion. Only a nation which is fully prepared and fully armed is a strong nation and we should have learned this from our experience following World War II when we allowed our enemies to persuade us to disarm :While other countries went right on building up their military might. No people can be secure who live in a Fool's Paradise and are willing to trust gangster nations to keep the peace and respect the rights and freedoms of others, treaties or no treaties. Great Religious Denomination Should Repudiate Its Subversive Affiliates With the United States facing the greatest peril confronting it in history, many pro-Communist groups in this country have had the judgment to temporarily sus­pend their propaganda activities on the theory, no doubt, that they will elicit more disgust than approval, right at this particular time. But not so the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity of Atlanta, Georgia. We hasten to add that this group in no way repre· sents the majority of the high class Americans who compose the mem· bership of the great Episcopalian Church but are rather the black sheep in that denomination. However, this segment of that religious group is highly organized and active and capable of reflect~ ing vast discredit on the denomina­tlon which tolerates its off-brand behavior. Recently this society put out a blasphemous plaque which was widely circulated in church circles showing a picture of the Christ with a White boy kneeling on one side and a Negro on the other, to· gether with a statement of purpose of the organization urging social practices which are calculated to gag a vulture, such as: "Praying daily that the church may be rid of all divisions based on race, color, national origin or class and that a more just social order be established." uMutual support amongst this society for all clergy and laity who, in seeking total participation in parish life for all, find themselves at odds with accepted social mores." ''Elimination of criteria based on race, color, national origin or class for applicants to church, camps, conferences, schools, colleges, hos­pitals or other institutions or agen­cies which the church may oper· ate in any way." A fair sample of those on its Board of Directors is The Rt. Rev. James A. Pike of California who is atheistic in his religious views and pro-Communist in his social and economic pronouncements. Lately the Episcopal Church as a whole has indicated a desire to Negotiating With The Forces Of Darkness Humiliating And Futile Aid To Schools Would Concentrate Power In (ashington Bureaucracy (San Francisco Call-Bulletin) The Kennedy Administration's aid-to-education program appears to be foundering on the private school aid issue. This issue is not enough, of itself, to block action, but it is swinging the balance against this costly, controversial and potentially dangerous legisla­tion. The school aid plan is danger4 out because it presages loss of au­thori, ty by local school boards and concentration of such power in the Washington bureaucracy. Any such intention is elaborately denied, but when the federal government puts up the money it is bound to specify how it shall be spent. Washington dictation on local expenditures for relief is a good example of how this system works. Aside from that, the legislation proooses an ill-disguised handout to the states-the rich ones as well as the poor ones. The expense would be added to a budget deficit which threatens renewed inflation in the cost of living. And the need for such handouts, even if the money were available, has not been demonstrated . It is stated the nation needs 600,- 000 more c lassrooms in the next 10 years. Without federal help, classrooms are being built at a rate which would produce 700,000 in the same period. A shortage of teachers is pre~ dieted. Yet a comprehensive sur­vey, last year, by the committee for economic development, indi­cated that, in the 10-year period from 1949 to 1959, teaching staffs had grown faster than student en­rollments. The survey reported teachers are progressively better trained, with the proportion of men teachers highest in half a century. Salaries have grown on an aver~ age fa!>ter than the average level of naticr.al earnings. We think that the plea of the private schools, mainly Roman Catholic parochial schools, to be cut in on the proposed subsidy, is unsound for the simple reason the basic proposition is unsound. Con­gress will be well advised to let the entire matter drop. From a San Antonio business ex­ecutive: uFor two years I have followed closely and with interest all of your editorials and I feel certain that yours are the views of the majority of free·thinking American patriots." clean house by criticising the Na· tional Council of Churches and demanding that that national or· ganization quit projecting its own political, economic and social views in the name of Episcopal Church members and, in some notable cases, by withdrawing from the NCC altogether. The parent body of the church could remove much of the corruption which has built up in religious circles around the racial issue by disavowing any further connection with the Episcopal So· ciety for Cultural and Racial Unity. As hurricane Carla, one of the most violent assaults of nature ever hurled against the United States, was ripping across the coastal area of the country and destroying hun­dreds of millions of dollars worth of property and which except for excellent evacua­tion facilities would have taken at least a quarter of a mil­lion human lives, a rival force of destruction was being staged in an· other part of the world. In the Soviet Union, the agents of death and annihilation released one atomic test after another as if to prove that the hand of man could vie with the elements in the mass killing of the human race and the destruction of property. And at the same time, headlines proclaimed that President Kenne· dy was ready to hold summit con4 ferences with the forces of dark­ness in the Soviet Union "if they were willing." We suppose there is no way to dissuade A m e r i c a n Presidents from repeatedly engaging in these humiliating and farcical discus· sions each one of which strips more dignity and prestige from the weak and wavering representatives of this great Republic, who seem utterly incapable of meeting the dire situation with forceful action and to whom "negotiation" means further appeasement, surrender and retreat. To deal with the Soviets is treat­ing with the minions of Hell, and nothing but evil can come from further association with those who only bear outer resemblance to men and who are on a moral and spiritual level with swine. Neither Political Party Provides The Full Answer The argument that Communism can be whipped by changing the complexion of Congress from Dem4 ocrat to Republican has no valid .. ity in the face of the facts. Trea4 son in Washington is bi-partisan since there are patriots in both parties, and likewise traitors. For instance in the case of the situation in Africa where the United Nations forces have been fighting on the side of the Com­munists, Senator Dodd of Connec· ticut, a democrat, is putting up the hardest fight to expose this situa­tion of any one in the Senate while Jake Javits of New York, who calls himself a Republican, is all for it. Whatever the answer, changing from Democrat to Republican or vice versa is not it. The American people are sup· posed to have enough intelligence and plain horse sense to vote for men who are Americans first, last and all the time, when they choose their representatives in Congress and the fact that that body is shot through with Communist sympa4 thizers is nobody's fault except the electorate's. Party labels are no longer au~ thentic and the wise American will disregard it when he goes to the polls and select the man who most nearly measures up to his concep­tion of what an American states ... man should be. ~·g• 4 The Southern Conservative A MONTHLY PUBLICATION OF EDITORIAL OPINION WITH NATIONAL CIRCULATION IDA M.

THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: The power1 not delegated to the United Shtes by the Conttitution, nor prohibited by it to the Statu, ere reserved to the Stalet respectively, or to the people. Mystery Of Hammarskjold's Death Will Probably Remain Just That There has perhaos been no in­cident in recent times which is more confusio~ than the case of Dag H?mMarskiold, late Secretary GeJ'leral of the United Nations who met a tragic death in the wilds of Africa recently. In the first place, his death is going to be set down as an a·c­cident and so effective is modern propa~anda that the American peo­ple Will actually believe that this is true. For the real truth to be m:1de public wotlld reflect on the Commnnists and we can't have that of cou.~e. Whv the Soviets would want to get rid of Mr. Hammarskjold as the:v indicated at the last session of the U. N. that they intended to do, makes the situation all the more confusing for undoubtedly it is hard to see why they would not have been friendly toward him. Certainly in the Bang-Jensen tra­gedy he did nothing to offend them and at the time of his death he was in Africa with U.N. troops who were engaged in fighting anti­Communist forces there. But the Communist mind is dark and devious and it is hard to fol­low their line of thought. At any rate, they felt their in­terests could be better served with Hammarskjold out of the way so he is out of the way. TH! SOUTHERN CONSERVATIV! Oelober, 1961 Atlanta, Dallas and New Orleans Schools Are Federal Judiciary Plunged Integrated Under Police State Proceedings Further Down Into The Mire The Federal judiciary which has been the football of dirty politics for many years was dragged fur­ther down into the mire when the President named Thurgood Mar­shall, chief bell-wether of the hate organization, NAACP, as a mem­ber of Second Circuit Court of Appeals of New York. Addle-brained advocates of racial mixing who can see no further than the big nose on their faces, are bragging their heads off about the mixing of white and black children in Atlanta, Dallas and New Orleans schools in September "without incident." The le~t-wing press has drained the contemptible proceedings of every possible ounce of publicity which can be extracted from the situation but as usual they have taken liberties with the truth. They made no mention of the fact that in each of these cities th~ police department was stationed at the schools to be integrated With guns and black.iacks handy and with U.S. marshals standing by ready to go into action. They didn't tell of the arrangements beforehand which practically amounted to martial law in which no white citizen was allowed in the vicinity of the schools with the exception of parents accompany­ing their children to classes. They didn't tell how any interested ob­servers were herded away from the scene like cattle and prevented from ~ven looking on as Federal rule was substituted for State authority In the conduct of local schools and carpetbag tactics of the Sixties revived for the enforcement of a Communist-inspired court ruling. They didn't tell of the frail diabetic youth in Atlanta who merely stopped to look and was snatched up by police and thrown in jail where he almost died ~rom lack of insulin treatments. But he was only a white boy, so he didn't count. They didn't tell how scallywag school board members and sneaky politicians in the cities affected had been secretly conferring with the Attorney General in Washington and his agents for months beforehand planning the procedures by which white Southerners were to be intimi­dated into staying away and prevented from being present while a centralized national government over-rode State authority through brute force and set up a Federal dictatorship over the educational sys­tem of the South. Neither did they call attention to the fact that the integrated pupils were helpless babies in the first and second grades because authorities were too cowardly to force this indignity on tougher teen­a~ ers who might have offered some embarrassing opposition to the disgraceful proceedings. . As we go to press, the public schools of Memphis, Tennessee, were mtegrated under exactly the same Police State conditions. Yes, it was all peaceful and serene and there were "no incidents." Resistance, under the circumstances, would have been about as futile as would have been the case had the proceedings been taking place under the iron hand of Khrushchev in Moscow. Trouble Up North (Ft. Worth Star-Telegram) It grieves us, right when the U. S. North is so roundly applaud­ing the further integration of pub­lic schools in Southern cities, to read that Chicago, of all places, is involved in a lawsuit against al­leged segregation practices in the public school system there. It is embarrassing and it suggests that there is more than a little hypo­crisy in the advice and admoni­tions the South has been getting. In Chica~o. the parents of 32 Negro children from five elemen­tary schools are seeking a decla­ratory judgment and permanent in­junction against the school board and supPrintendent, who are ac­cused of drawing school district boundaries along racial lines. A federal district court is asked to declare the "neighborhood school" policy illegal and uncon­stitutional and to require the trans­fer of the children from predom­inantly Negro schools to others less crowded. The superintendent and board are accused of having ''periodical­ly altered the school district lines for the purpose of containing the children and other members of their class within a prescribed school district." New Rochelle, N. Y., It will be recalled, had a similar complaint, and a federal judge ordered the Negro pupils transferred. It is be­side the point that in so doing HATE-MONGERING GROUP IS VOTED TWO MORE YEARS OF LIFE As was to be expected the Civil Right Commission, the group which has done little else than en­courage hate-mongering and dis- ~~~f~~~d 0 onn r~~i~r 7!~e~~r~s ~~a~s~ This .outfit was set up during the Eisenhower Administration and among its membership were two persons who had been con~ nected with the Institute of In­ternational Education, an organ­ization which has been named as a part of the Communist appara~ tus. The thing would have expired in November but nothing bad is ever allowed to expire in Wash­ington and so the Senate voted it two more years of trouble-making activity. This was accomplished by tack­ing the prooosition onto an appro­priation bill which was of course dishonest but what isn't where tricky and scheming politicians are concerned? Mike Mansfield of Montana and Everett Dirksen of Illinois were the ~~1~0~e~~e~~ ~~o led the sheep the court assumed the perogatives of locally elected school authori­ties. The point is that Northern cities have done by subterfuge what the South has done openly and still have the arrogance to judge the genuineness of the South's compliance with the "law of the land." There was, of course, no justl~ fication for the appointment of Marshall from any angle except that of political gain and the hope. that more Negro votes would thereby be garnered for the New Frontier Party. Marshall's only claim to distinction in the legal field is that he argued the case for integration at the time the Supreme Court yielded to the pleas of Com­munist Gunnar Myrdal ot Sweden and handed down a ruling order­ing the mixing of the races in pub~ lie schools, thereby reversing pre~ vious decisions of real judges on the court and violating the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution. It goes without saying that Mar~ sh:=dl has a Communist front rec~ ord, but this is exoected to in no way serve as a deterrent to his confirmation by the United States Senate. It never does. Apoendix IX, part 2, page 795, lists Marshall as having been at­filiated with the International Jur~ idical Association which was cited as "an organization which active­ly defended Communists and con­sistentlv followed the Commuoist Partv line' ", by the Comf'Y'Iittee on Un-American Activities J !H4. He is also listed as havin~ been affiliated with the National Law~ yers Guild In House reoort No. 3123. This organization has been cited as a Communist-front by the Soecial Committee on Un-Ameri· can Activities, 1944. Paul Harvey, columnist, says that the· current crisis in Berlin has been blown up out of all propor­tion to the specific threat and that the belief in many ouarters is that a campaign slogan for 1964 is be­ing made to order: "He kept u·s out of war". Like Roosevelt, eh? Well, there is so much high-level dishonesty, deceit and treachery that we wouldn't doubt it. Let us add that there are those who think the "crisis" in Berlin arose as a re­sult of a desire that the public mind be taken off Cuba - some~ thing that would be pleasing to both Mr. K's. In connection with the official punishment meted out to the great American General Walker, let us try to ima.eine for a moment the Presictent of the United States in World War II relieving an Ameri­can army officer from command for telling his men that Nazism was bad and Hitler an enemy of this country. The imaJ.!ination won't stretch that far, will it? This being true, intellieent citizens can't help wondering WHY it is true. Left-wingers in Washington used to taunt patriots with the charge that _they were looking for a Com­mumst ~nder every bed. The jibe worked m many cases until it was discovered that while there may !lot be one. under every bed, there IS one behmd far too many desks in the nation's capital. October, 1961 TH! SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Pogo 5 Prayer Before A Red Firing Squad (Reprinted from An Editor's Notebook by John D. Lopp, Au· burndale, Florida, Star, May 4, 1961.) Dear Lord-With the rattle of firing squads roaring in our ears. we come to you for the last time to ask your forgiveness - not so much for that which we have done as for that which we did not do. As we sit here awaiting our sum­mons to the bullet-pocked wall where we shall breathe our last breath and look for the last time upward into the blue that only yes­terday canopied a free, a strong and a vibrant nation, we think of that bulwark of freedom that we once enjoyed and we pondef.. What have we done to permit such a thing as is now happening to happen? And then, in the same breath, we answer our own query. We let America fall because we, and mill. ions like us, were too busy, too selfish and too unconcerned. 1'lt can't happen here," we told ourselves as free nation after free nation vanished behind the swell­ing tide of a godless philosophy of enslavement and degradation and annihilation. But It has happened at last to us, just as it happened to the peoples of China and Poland and Korea and to the Hungarians and to those of Laos and as it hap­pened in Cuba. It happened because we, and all too many Americans like us, re­fused to see -- because we closed our eyes to the sure and certain pattern ot deceit and of betrayal -because we listened, hopefully, and each time with believing, as the same old lies were propound­ed and repeated, time after time, while new victims vanished be­hind that curtain that marks an end to all things that a free people hold more precious than life itself. We hooed-we temporized-we whistled in the dark. We cringed before world opin­Ion - an opinion made articulate and blatant by the voices of those who served the forces that sought, and have now accomplished, our destruction. We cringed. also, from voices from within-many, perhaps, mis­lead, but others serving those who plotted our enslavement and planned it all too well. We ignored our glorious heritage -we forgot those who dared defy a despotic monarch to risk and, by that risking, to create a shrine of freedom along the fringe of coastline of a new and unexplored continent. We forgot the men that followed, those who pushed westward with long rifle and powder horn to span the Mississippi and the mountains and the plains and the deserts. We forgot the ringing phrases that inspired a budding nation. We forgot "Don't Give Up The Ship," and "Millions for Defense But Not One Cent for Tribute." We forgot Nathan Hale and his regret that he had but one life to give for his country. We forgot the squint-eyed m u s k e t m e n crouched behind crude barricades at Lexington and Bunker Hill. We forgot the suffering at Valley Forge. We ignored the heroism of those who again fought the British in 1812 to guarantee our independ­ence. We forgot that they too faced tribulations and despairs - that they saw their cities bombarded and their capitol burned. We forgot that they did not fal­ter any more than did those of both The Blue and The Gray when called upon to defend those things ~~~~~ principles that they held And we forgot the Maine and that charge up a sun-baked hill. We forgot those that fought in the mud and muck of the trenches in World War I, just as we forgot tho~e who followed the Stars and ~tnpes to every corner of the globe m another world conflict against the tyranny and the Just and the hate that we as a nation could not countenance or permit to blossom unchecked and uncontrolled. . ~e forgot all those glorious sac­nflces that earned our nation the respect, the admiration and the envy of all less fortunate people. We forgot because we became apologetic for our wealth, our pow­er a~d our concept of freedom. We listened to those who scoffed at America - those who belittle us - made fun of us as money g~abbers - as a nation grown soft Wlth luxury. We believed those who told us tha~ we would fai l as a leader of natiOns unless we raised all people to our standards and in almost the s_ame voicE> ridiculed our way of ltfe, our patriotism, our once-deep­rooted conviction that our land ~~~ir~~~inely guided and divinely We listened to those who scoffed at our concepts of morality - at our respect for, and confidence in the sanctity of the home and of marriage. We followed those who corrupted our literature with sex and hate and ugliness. We shouted down those who at­tempted to awaken us - we ridi­cule~-- or at least permitted others to ndicule - and often silenced the voices of those whose warn­Ings we blithely ignored. Partly, we ignored the voices of those who dared to speak because we were too busy with horse opera and sick comics and installment payments to pay attention - but largely we ignored them becaus~ we were afraid. We were afraid of a new and powerful force that might well an­nihilate a nation in a handful of seconds. We trembled at thoughts of our cities in ruins and farmlands devastated and contaminated, our civi lization destroyed in the twink­ling of an eye. But mostly, we quaked at fears for our own safety, for our own full bellies and for our automatic washing machines and chrome­plated automobiles. Like so many ostriches, we buried our heads in the sands of obliquity hoping that if we ignored Uncensored Communist Propaganda Clogging Up United States Mails When an attempt was made in Congress recently to increase pos­tal rates, the New York Times quoted the President as "unhappy" because recommendations for the increase did not hit third class pub­lications hard enough. He wanted a high rate on this class of mail. Third class postage applies to publications that are mailed in bulk and which are classified by the master minds in Washington as "junk mail." Incidentally, we op­erate under a third class permit so the Southern Conservative is "junk mail," yet. If the President's wishes had been carried out and third class postage raised, many publications would have had to fold up espe­cially patriotic publishers who want to preserve the American form of government and who are poor as church mice and it does not take much to knock them out of the running. They don't get tax-exempt Foundation support. It is hard to understand this feeling on the part of the President and especially in veiw of his action in removine: all censorship of Com­munist mail coming into this coun­try and which has so clo_gged the mails as to help make the need for an increase necessary in the first place. This Communist propaganda mail is preoared in Moscow. South America, the Orient, and East Ger­many and sh ipped to the United States in ton lots and delivered free by the United States post of· fice. Authorities reoort that there is such an influx of this proo :;~ oanda that three control points had to be set up, one in San Franci!==CO, one in New Orleans and one in New York, to deal with this subversive literature from its ori ~ inating points in Communist countries. It takes a lot of doing to figure out why the President would order censorship removed from this Com­munist mail and yet be "unllappy" because Congress refused to slap additional postage on third class material from patriotic citizens of the United States. The situation has become so grave that a bill to amend the Sub­versivities Control Act was intro­duced in tbe House of Representa­tives providing that such propa­ganda be labeled or otherwise no­tifying recipients of this mail of the nature of its contents. Defended by Congressman Fran­cis Walter of Pennsylvania, Con­gressman Glenn Cunningham of Nebraska and a score of other pa­triotic Americans in the House the bill was passed by that bodv with only two dissenting votes. We are not sure whether or not the Senate took similar action but the chances are that it did not . The only two voting aPainst t l,"" bill in the House were John V. Lindsay and \V"illiam Fitts Ryan, both of New York althouPh there were 64 members who did not vote. Morris Ryskand writing in the New York Herald, August 27, about the team of amateurs who are heloing President Kennedy put over his New Frontier program said: "For my money, this is the bic;gest collection of stumblebums ever gathered together since the days of the old Brooklyn Dodgers who used to make a specialty of having two runners sliding into second base together." Flatterer! We admit without shame or apology that we are a hard-core, card-carrying and flag-waving American and that we are not even re­motely concerned in the economic, social or financial welfare of any other nation on earth so long as our own country is in peril. When the American people get back their lost freedom, Constitutional Gov- .._ ernment is restored and American patriots are at the helm of the Ship of State once again, we will start worrying about the troubles 0f other countries, not before. the ever expanding menace of the rising Red tide it would go away. We vacillated - we temporized - we voiced high-sounding but meaningless phrases in the world councils, as the Red tidal wave ripped through once-free lands, en­gulfing state after state and nation after nation while we prattled of peace. Even after the crimson avalanche pushed across the oceans to our very doorstep we vacillated - de­bated - feared the clamor of world opinion which echoed only the Judas-babble of those who would betray us. And then - at last - it was too late. No nuclear blasts wiped out the freedom won by Washington and John Paul Jones and Daniel Boone and Admiral Dewey and Black Jack Pershing and Bull Halsey and Blood and Guts Patton and all the others who led, or were lead, as America grew and became omnip­otent. Our nation fell because we stopped believing in our destiny­because we apologized for being rich and powerful among all na­tions. And, because we were afraid, we refused to read the all-too-plain handwriting on the wailing wall of inevitability. We, who were once strong, per­mitted ourselves to become weak with timidity. We who were once daring became over-cautious with doubts of our divinely ordained mission. We, who were once bois­terously loud in shouting the praises of our system of free en­terprise and free men, became mute and hushed as we apologized for that which our sacrifices and our labors, and the sacrifices and labors of those who had gone before us, had made possible. For that, Oh Lord, we ask your forgiveness as the tramp of the executioners pounds up the cor­ridor of our cell door. Forgive us, and the tens of mil­lions like us, who could have raised our voices when there was yet time to be heard - but who, in­stead, remained mute until it was too late - until it was far, far too late. Pogo 6 Unvarnished Truth About The Foreign Aid Program The corrupt Foreign Aid racket came into being following the end of World War ll in 1945 with the launching of the first "Rob Amer­icans for the benefit of foreigners" program in American history and which was known as the Marshall Plan. Contrary to a widespread belief, the Marshall Plan had nothing to do with altruistic objectives of helping other countries toward re­covery. That was merely incidental, and as most of the funds were mis­applied, it didn't help them any way. The real reason back of this give-away program was the re­dist:( ibu,tion of wealth in accord­, ance with the wave of Interna­tiona} Socialism which swept the g,lobe , at that time the backwash ,9f ;ovhi~h almost completely inun­dated the United States during the rh!~on~~~1~ni~~rat!on c~~~ch ~~~ Roosevelt's death. The national income which was ..it a high level during the war con· tinued but there was no longer any need to spend it on national defense and a potential surplus in the National Treasury threatened. This was unthinkable to the Socialist squanderers in charge of government and something had to be done to "level off" the Ameri­can way of life to conform to the rest of the world. . It never for a moment occurred to them to apply it to the national debt, to reduce high taxes or re­peal war-time levies. This would have been a concession to the the­ory of self-protection. uAmerica First'' was as abhorrent to the sp~nders then as now, so they hatched up the Marshall Plan The joke of the century was that the Marshall Plan was to be a tem­porary arrangement to tide war­torn countries over the hump. That was sixteen years ago and a orogram which was to be launch­ed as. a temporary emergency mea­sure IS now a permanent policy of government with Kennedy de­manding the biggest lump for this purpose yet dreamed of and with practically every country in the World as a beneficiary even though ~ach and_ every one of them with a dollar m their Treasury are bet­ter off than the United States This planned and organized be­trayal of the people of this coun­try is enough to make the great patriots who founded the Republic turn over in their graves. The joke of the year concerns a statement in the press attributed to The Rt. Rev. Chandler Sterling of Helena, Montana, Montana Dio­cese of the ~rotestant Episcopal ~hurch, ~ho IS quoted as saying: The Umted States is presently in a patriotic panic together with an unfortunate trend toward National­ism." We're in a panic all right but the panic is the result of too much !reason and not too much patriot­Ism and while patriotism is ap­parently a dirty word to the Rev Mr. Sterling, loyal Americans d~ not feel that way and would wel­come a permanent "panic of pa­triotism" and a strong wave of na­tionalism to the end that Com­rnumsm may be banished from our Institutions, including many of our churches. TH! SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Dovetailing Network Of Subversion Keeps Americans Thoroughly Confused Communist propaganda which is inundating_ this country like a tidal wave has many subtle, com­plicated and devious facets and is so interwoven with apparently harmless, even beneficial, activi­ties that it is all but impossible for the average busy American to even recognize it, much less keep tab on it. For instance, let us take the fol­lowing apparently unrelated facts, tie them together and see how we come up with inter-locking sub­version and how propaganda detri­mental to the United States and its institutions is c i r cuI ate d throughout the world. First, there is the recently pub~ lished book called "The Un-Amer­icans." a perverted and distorted attack on a legally organized com­mittee of the Congress of the United States devoted to the exposure of Communist agents and their activ~ ities in this country. This book is the pride of eggheads and other assorted subversives and is being widely circulated free and espe­cially to the universities and col­leges which, as is generally known, are the prime targets of Moscow in its campaign to "bury" the American people. According to this vile book, the House Committee on Un-American Activities represents "hate in ac­tion" and i.ts staff members are all figures "in a gallery of hate." The intent of the book is, of course, to curb the investigation into Com­munism and to take the heat off the enemy agents who are boring into the foundation of the Ameri­can governing system. The author of the book is one Frank J. Donner, described in the foreword of the book as a "con­stitutional lawyer" with no further information concerning his back4 ground provided. Mr. Donner cannot be blamed for writing the book because he was one of those caught in the net of subversion woven by the Com4 mittee. His reason, therefore, for publishing the volume was not only to give aid and comfort to the enemy but to seek revenge on the Committee for turning up his own unsavory record. On February 16, 1959. this same House Committee on Un-American Activities presented evidence in a report titled "Communist Legal Subversion; the Role of the Com­munist Lawyer" that Donner him­self was a member of a Communist cell <~comprised of lawyers em­ployed by the National Labor Re­lations Board in Washington, D.C." Herbert Fuchs, former Commu­ni~ t organizer, among others, of th1s cell in 1937 testified under oath that Frank Donner was one of the NRLB lawyers who joined his Communist group. Mortimer Reimer, another former member of this Communist cell testified under oath on December 14, 1955 to this same effect. On March I, 1956, Harry Cooper, another ex-Com­munist identified Donner as a Com­munist. (See Speech of Hon. Fran­cis E. Walter of Pennsylvania, in the House of Representatives, Monday, July 17, 1961, appearing in the Congressional Record of that date.) So it is understandable why Don­ner wrote the book since, as a hit dog, he would naturally howl but from there on, there are some things which are not understand~ able. For instance, the book was pub­lished by Ballantine Books, Inc., of New York which had a perfect right to publish it although it might be open to question as to whether or not a reputable concern would put out the work of a man with Donner's record and in which he attacks a legitimate Committee of Congress for fighting Communism and exposing Communist agents. So much for that. Now let us turn to page 12606 of the Congressional Record of July 26, 1961 where George A. Smath­ers, senator from Florida, praises extravagantly the appointment of Roger W. Straus, Jr., as chairman of something known as the People­to- People program set up by Pres· ident Eisenhower in 1956 and which proposes "to distribute up to a half million copies of American books overseas." Senator S m a t h e r s praised the appointment of Straus to this position and had inserted in the Congressional Record of that date a~ article from the left-wing magazme New Yorker which was highly laudatory of the project. Now let us turn to "Who's Who in America" and find the listing of Mr. Roger W. Straus, Jr. In this volume we find that Mr. Straus who, as chairman of the People~ to-People program is going to se­lect a half million books to be sent overseas, is a director of Bal~ lantine Books, Inc, which pub­lished "The Un-Americans." To sum It up: "The Un-Americans" is a sub­versive book brutally attacking a committee of Congress for expos­ing Communists. It was written by a man who was turned up by that same committee as having been a member of a Communist cell following testimony to this effect by three former Communists. The book is published by Balian· tine Books, Inc., one of whose di4 rectors is Roger W. Straus, Jr. Roger W. Straus, Jr. has been named head of the "People-to People'' program which will dis­tribute a half million American books overseas. Does anyone think this book "The Un-Americans" won't be among those half million which go overseas? And when the people overseas read this slanderous book assai~ing. a committee of Congress for f1ghtmg Communism what im· pression will they get of our atti· tude on Communism? But above and beyond this, think how many set-ups and tie-ins of a similar nature American patriots have to combat in trying to beat ?ack the enemy which is destroy­mg not only American rights and freedoms but Christian civilization all over the world, October, 1961 CASTRO INSULTS U.S. AND GETS BY WITH IT How this country allows even a dirty little punk like Cuba's Cas­tro to insult us and get by with it was revealed in the testimony of former Ambassador to Mexico Robert C. Hill who appeared be­fore the Subcommittee of the Com ... mittee of the Judiciary of the United States Senate recently. Mr. Hilt told of an incident in which one of the vice presidentS of the Export-Import Bank went to Cuba to seek remuneration for the companies who had had their property appropriated by the bearded outlaw. He had an appointment with one of Castro's henchmen named Gue­vara to inquire about the inten4 tions of the Cuban government re4 garding $39,000,000 worth of loans to Cuba and to inquire if CastrO was prepared to repay the United States Government. -Guevara's impudent reply to the representative of the bank was: "We have no intention of repaying this money. I suggest that the American companies who have derived so many profits out of Cuba and the Cuban people repay the loans. Good-day, sir." And that was that. There was a time when we had courageous Americans administer4 ing the government of the United States that this little squirt of a Castro would have been dispatch .. ed in double-quick time for thus insulting the American Republio even if we had had to strangle hitn with his own beard. We do not anticipate that Wash· ~~~o~,en~n~:r w~~ess~nu\ ~en~~:~~~ the day will come, unless we have gone entirely soft and decadent. when the American people them ... selves will tire of being pushed around by such human rats as Khrushchev, Castro, et at, and will do something about it. Another Boom Is Lowered On Anti·Communist Discussion . A Major from Fort Sam Hous.. ton was scheduled to make the principal address to the Fall meet~ mg of the Texas Junior Chamber of Commerce which met in Waco recently. Shortly before the meeting was to convene, the Commandant at Fort Sam Houston wrote the Jun .. lor Chamber saying that the Major would be unable to fulfill his sched· uled engagement to make the ad ... dress. The excuse given by the Commandant was that "because of internal developments all in­structors are needed now more than ever", which didn't explain anything at all because Fort Sam Houston is located near San A~ tonio only a short distance away from Waco and only a few hours are required to make the trip. !he a_ffair was puzzling 8nd QUit~ a disappointment to those at~ ~~~d~~\!~!/t~~~eeting, until they The officer who was to speak had sele~ted as his subject "Anti4 Commun,~m and Moral Decay of the Amencan People." Then it was recalled that Army o~ftcers are no longer allowed to dlscu~s Communism, And isn't that JUst dandy? October, 1961 More Work Is The Answer To Juvenile Delinquency The Juvenile Delinquency prob· ]em continues to hold the public jnterest as well it should. Young Robert Kennedy the At­torney General recently appeared before a Congressional committee to discuss the problem, but, like all others who have undertaken its solution, he is guessing wrong con­cerning the cause of the increase of crime among youngsters and it's cure. He blames lack of educational opportunity and recreational facil­ities for the demoralization among modern youth. The truth is that young boys and girls have too much leisure and the way they .are employing it bears out the old adage that an ''idle brain is 'the Devil's workshop." Juvenile delinquency started on a large scale in this country when meddlers and do-gooders began passing laws to prevent young peo­ple from working and it was the child labor legislation of forty years ago which put the idea in the minds of youngsters that there was something evil about work and that leisure was the answer to ev­~ rything. This idea has been continued and extended in our national legislation as work hours have been decreas­ed by law and pay increased. The idea is less work and more pay and the day may not be far dis­tant when the working week will be 4 days. This is an wrong and like all customs which are based on un­sound philosophy, nothing but evil will come of it. Wholesome work for boys and girls after school hours and dur­~ ng vacation would go a long way toward taking their thoughts off of switch blade knives and killing innocent victims for the thrill of lt. The President ran true to fonn When he named Mrs. Sarah Hughes of Dallas as a Federal judge, and kept the standard he has maintain­ed in his appointments up, or rather down, to par. Mrs. Hughes is a New Dealer from way back and nobody leans any farther left than this Dallas lady. A comparison of hurricane Carla Which wrought three hundred mil­lion dollars worth of damage and the foreign aid program which cost even more has been made by William V. Hoyt of Yoakum, Tex­~ s. who says: "We should take our representatives in Washington over the debris-strewn scenes of heartbreak and devastation and ask them why they perpetrated up­o. n our nation a political devasta­tion ten times greater." From a patriot in Houston: "I really believe that you must have ~vine help to keep writing like you do." Probably not. It's just hard digging into the record and reporting what we find. The filthy tabloid publication "Oveseas Weekly" which is re~ sponsible for the dastardly attack on General Edwin A. Walker is owned and directed by John Dam­burg, Marion von Rospach, Johan­na Pyrm, Sigfried Naujocks, Eu~ gene Bernard and Harold Melahn!!! THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIV& Darkies Who Will Soon Boss United Nations Are Living It Up In Style The black boys from the jungles of Africa are living it up. One Arsene Usher, an Ambassa­dor to the United Nations from the Ivory Coast, one of the "under­privileged" areas into which we have poured millions, blew into New York recently with his wife three children and a slew of serv~ ants and settled himself into a $90,000 mansion on Long Island with 42 rooms. It probably seemed like a slum t? the Ambassador, however, in v1ew of the fact that the President of the country he represents, one Mouphouet Boigny, has just built himself a little dump back home in Abidjan which set somebody back the neat sum of $11,000,000. Dr. Kwarne Nkrumah, president of Ghana, another "under-privil- Communism In The Churches Revealed In Research Report The strong hold which Commun­ism has acquired on religious in· stitutions of the United States was illustrated in a recent issue of Edi~ toria1 Research Reports, widely distributed among church groups which asserted that •·Religious bodies are fra nkly acknowledging that Christian Brotherhood implies acceptance of interracial unions." The reports are si,ened by one Helen B. Shaffer, and appeared in the Denver Post. According to this oerson the fol­lowing churches subscribe to the depraved and obscene oractice of marriage among Whites and Blacks: "The Episcopal Society for Cul­tural and Racial Unity petitioned the House of Bishops on July 10 to study the Question of interracial marriages and to state the position of the church. It was the view of the Society that laws forbidding racial intermarriages were contra~ ry.~::, 9t~r!~t:~ot~~c~i;;~·~e)ations' the Reformed Church said: 'We be­lieve that the church misconceives its functions when it actively hin­ders, forestalls or decries the mar­riags of any two people who, Iov­lnjZ Christ, Jove each other'." "A .,Statement on interracial marria.ees' issued by the Con,Rre.ea­tional Christian Church uoheld the virtue of such rnarria~es by saying that 'fe11owshio based on respect and good will for people is the divine purpose' and that phys1cal differences between the races were 'superficial.'" "The growing wi11 ingness of church leaders to assert the ac­ceptability of interracial marriage was evident in the responses of Presbyterian clergvmen and lay leaderS to a question posed not long a~o by a church publication: 'Would you want your daue:hter to marr:~ a Negro.' Nearly all said thev would ." When such unspeakable, unnat­ural and degenerate policies as this are condoned by any sector of a religious group it is indication that we are nearing the end of Chris­tian civilization in the United States and reverting to the dark ages. eged" country and who Is taking money from both the United States and the Soviet Union, brought his entourage over here recently to at­tend a session of the United Na~ tions at which time he took 40 suites at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel for his 70-member staff. Not only are they living high on the hog and basking in luxury but they are moving right in on the white folks. All we've got to say is that the people in Long Island, even though they may not object to living along~ side of Negroes, had better watch out and stay inside on dark nights or they are liable to wake up some morning and find themselves all cut up and tossed in their neigh~ bor's stew pot. Listeners Can Clean Up Television If They Want To The investigation of violent pro­grams on television and their ef­fect on juvenile delinquency seems to have quieted down and nothing will probably come of it. There is no doubt that all the gory murder and shooting on those programs very definitely contrib­ute to iuvenile delinquency and nobody but adult delinquents would nresent such programs to the pub­He. But if the only alternative is to have television programs dictated by an agency of the Federal gov­ernment, that would be worse be­cause we would get a solid bar­rage of propaganda on social and economic questions, so oerhaps we had just as well let the shoot-em-up programs continue. Every American could settle the problem right quick if they wanted to. Personally, we have done just that and we never turn our tele· vision on except for special pro­grams from which we know what to expect. We would not any more turn the thing on and take pot-luck than we would turn a rattlesnake lOose in our room. Let a few million Americans do the same thing and the ratings would fall so low that the degen­erates who olan these violent pro­grams would have to offer more decent entertainment. Certainly Federal interference is not the answer to that or anything else. Who Says That Modern Politics Does Not Pay? A sort of political Horatio Alger story was emphasized in two re~ cent news releases in the press. One of these releases told of Vice President Lyndon Johnson seJiing his television station in a South Texas town for "more than a million dollars." Another related his purchase in Washington of the former Perle Mesta home at a figure estimated to be near a quarter miJlion dol­lars. Page I The Hatch Act Should Apply to All or None When Mr. McNamara, Secre. tary of Defense ,was testifying be .. fore members of the Armed Serv .. ices Committee of the United States Senate concerning the dis­graceful treatment accorded Gen­eral Edwin A. Walker, he stress­ed the fact that the General had violated the Hatch Act. The Hatch Act, as we under­stand it, is a Federal Jaw wh.ich prevents those on the government payroJI from taking an active part in partisan politics. According to the evidence in the Walker case, so far revealed, Gen­eral Walker merely told his men to inform themselves as to the records of those candidates for public office on whom they would vote and to act intelligently in the matter. There was nothing parti· san about that and nothing po- ' litical. What we would like Mr. Mo· Namara to explain is this. The President is certainly on the payroll of the Government in a big way. So, is it a violation of the Hatch Act when he talks to members of the House and Senate and threat· ens to withhold patronage and withdraw military installations in their district if they do not vote for the Marxist legislation which he has been trying to ram throu~h Congress? It is an act of sacrilege to pet .. mit a politician to occupy a pulpJt and it is a perversion of his high calling for a minister of the gos~ pel to make political speeches. Strong efforts are now being made to change the title of the Hollywood "Rat Pack" to that of the "Clan." Chief obstacle to the plan is that the Ku Klux Klan Is objecting to this infringement and Is threatening to sue, according to rumors. Charles H. Keating, founder of Citizens for Decent Literature has a forthright remedy for correcting the situation: "Selling filth Is against the law. So arrest whoever se1ls it and put them in jail just as you would a sodomist . or ~ rapist." So far as we can find out, Amer· ican flags have never been placed at half mast for the death of any foreigner until Mr. Kennedy order­ed this honor extended in the death of Dag Hammarskjold, Secretary General of the United Nations. We closely listened for some mention of the most dangerous sit­uation of an - Cuba - in the President's speech to the United Nations but if he said anything about it, we didn't hear it. Nobody can hurt our feelings by calling us f'pre.iudiced." We are proud of the fact that we are deep· ly prejudiced against some things. For instance, we are glad we are prejudiced against the flood of subversive propaganda which has flowed into this country in a con~ tinuous stream for the past twenty five years changing our sound and time-tested social, economic and political views. Page S Let Russia Pay Up Or Get Out Of United Nations Mrs. A. M . .-Goldstein of Waco fs a member of an old pioneer Texas family, a lady in the finest sense of the word and an Amer· lean patriot to her finger tips. When she recently received a letter from Eleanor Roosevelt ask­ing for a financial contrib_ution to activities connected w1th the United Nations, Mrs. Goldstein did not reach for her check·book. In­steart she took her trusty pen in hand c:\'1d wrote the following let­ter to the woman whom dedicated ATT'erir'\ns reP,ard not as "The First Ladv "F the World" but as the na­tion's No. 1 pain-in-the-neck: First may I exoress regret of the hct that it was necessary for you t0 vis it the hosoital, and pleas­ure th.,t news reports state you - are fe"ling well. In reply to a form letter under your name reouesting financial aid for the United Nations may 1 say that many peoole. like myself, are now aware ef the fact that the U. N-.. is actually a detriment to the United States. tying our hands where actual self -oreservation is concerned, restraining us from the coui-ao.eous and independent action we once knew. The United Nations Is a tool of Communism to force the United States into a world eov­ernrn"' nt dominated by the U. S. S. R. At the same time, while our count.-v has paid in $146,200,000 to the U. N., Russia and its satel­lites 0we 45.5 millions and more than ~ Y, millions for dues for 1961. TJnder the U.N., Charter, the penaltv after two years is the loss of vo•ing ri~hts. Russia is in de­fault since 1959. Why hasn't this rule been enforced? Russia also owes $20.088.000 for Cono(} ooerations and $10.225,000 to tho "J;" conomic and Social Coun­cil (rT"'Tl~SCO). So the letter re­ceivPr{ here should have been sent to Mr. Khruschev and he should have been told to pay his dues if he wants to vote. and either to - do so nr get out. If he would pay what he owes. the U. N. would not h<'\ve to ask the people of the U. S. A. to come across with more. I am for the Connally Amend­ment!

Scripos-Howard staff writer Charles Lucey remarks in his col­umn of the remarkable soirit of friendship between Dwight D. Eis­enhower and his successor, John F. Kennedy. We see nothing re­markable in the mutual attachment. They have almost identical politic­al and ideological views. Both are dedicated One-Worlders; both have an apparently greater concern in the welfare of foreign countries than in their own; both believe in the policy of spending the Ameri­can Republic into bankruptcy and both have a wholesome contempt for the American Constitution and especially that portion of it which sets out the Rights of the Sover­eign States. We think it perfectly natural that they should be con· genial. THI SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVI A FEW RANDOM OBSERVATIONS ON THIS, THAT AND THE OTHER Southern Governors, the most of whom have been politically cas­trated by Washington, held a session of the Southern Governors Con­ference at Nashville on September 24~28 where they didn't do any good or any harm. They shied away from official discussion of Civil Rights like a country colt at a circus parade. They finally got around to denouncing the importation of foreign oil and textiles which is ruin­ing Americ'an industry but failed to express regret that they heartily support Washington politicians who favor such ruinous competition. The Attorney General of Louisiana has put the finger on one of the most dangerous and un~American groups in the United States by ruling recently that membership in the National Education Association is illegal and that any teacher associated with that organization is subject to removal by the local school board. He said NEA policies conflicted with Louisiana law. Old Communists in the State Department never die - they just get kicked up stairs and usually turn up In the United Nations, in American embassies abroad, in Africa to assist in helping the Soviets get settled in or in South America where they have charge of the planning of projects financed by American foreign aid, In Ankara on September 17, Turkey's premier for a decade was hanged for, of all things, "violation of the Constitution." What's the matter with the Turks? Are they crazy or something? Don't they realize that Constitutions are relics of the dark ages and have no standing in modern statecraft? If they ever decide to hang violators of the Constitution in this country, they're going to run out of rope before they get started good. Most thoughtful Americans concede that the United States is in deadly periJ and is facing perhaps the darkest period in American history. They tremble at the unstable, faltering and weak leadership in Washington which is responsible for our shaky position in world affairs. We agree but we can offer one comforting thought. The situa­tion could be worse. We could have Nelson Rockefeller for President. According to a Washington press release, little Bobby Kennedy, the Attorney General member of the family, has resigned from an "exclusive" Washington social club because the management wouldn't let him bring Negro guests to dinner. If you ask us, this club could not be very 0 exclusive" or it would not only bar Negroes but would be more discriminating in the selection of its white members. According to press reports little Caroline Kennedy will not go to a regular school with the peasantry but will have a kindergarten set up for her and some of her little friends in the White House. This is a natural and normal arrangement for the lovely little daughter ot the President. But we make bold to suggest that Mr. Kennedy had better work in a pickaninny or two or else he will run the risk of having his little brother file suit against the White House kindergarten for violating the Supreme Court ~li~g• o,!' !egregation. Perhaps the greatest joke of modern times was the solemn declara­tion of the Soviets that they were going to resume nuclear testing and the blind acceptance by the American people of the myth that they had ever stopped in the first place. Equally amusing are the claims of the Communists of some feats in outer space which are gradually being revealed by intellieent scientists as about seventy~five per cent bluff emploved by the Bolsheviks to scare us and goad us into spending more billions. A modern miracle can now be recorded. One nation to which the United States hiS given foreign aid has actually come out openly and declared its friendship for this country and its Intention to stand by us, come what may. President Manuel Prado of Peru said boldly in Washington that in the fight against Communism "you will find my country at your side." The only catch to the proposition is that when it comes to fighting Communism, Mr. Prado may find himself fighting alone while the United States' defenders are off somewhere "nego-tiating" with it. • • • • • Neutral countries are like a kept woman who is being supported by two men - they are taking money from both the United States and the Soviet Union and are playing both ends against the middle to their own advantage. • • • • • . _SJ~p-ha ppy_ ~o~thern Conservatives who think changing political afflhat10n and JOmmg the Republican Party is the answer have short memories. Re~ember Little Rock? Under their present leadership both the Democratic and Republican Parties are Socialist through and through and ~he sorry record of debt, inflation and corruption was not written by etther Democrats or Republicans but by both. The answer will come only when American voters start at the precinct level and elect patriots instead of traitors to Congress, regardless of party. October, 1961 HORRORS! GENERAL IS FOUND TO BELONG TO PATRIOTIC SOCIETY In the "investigation" of Gen· eral Edwin A. Walker following disclosures that he had been try· ing to inform his men. abou~ the technique of Commumst inftltra .. tion it was revealed that he was guilty ot being a member ot tho John Birch Society. Isn't that a heinous crime and Isn't it awful that a General in the American army should belong to a patriotic society? This was on& of the offenses for which he was humiliated and relieved of his com-ma;; g;,., where General Walker made his mistake was in not join· ing Americans for Demo~ra.tic Ac .. tion, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peo .. pte or even the Communist Party in which event there would have been no commotion and no com· pl~~ntfact he might have been ad· vanced with such rapidity that tn no time at all, he would have be.e~ an adviser to presidents and a mth• tary authority of the highest rank. A man can't be too careful of what he joins these days It he wants to get ahead in Washington. Soviet Mind Cannot Be Punctured With A Pick-Axe It should have come as no sur· pr\se to the President that hi.s sweetness and light speech to the United Nations fell on deaf ean so far as the Soviet Union and Its satellites are concerned. He might just as well have been talking to a stone wall and Gro .. myko's speech on the following day proved that there would be no retreat from the Communists' re· peated insistance that all conces .. sion must come from the other side. The Soviet mind is closed and hermetically sealed on one subject and that is that they are going to take over the World, the United States included, and further talk­Ing with them on this or any other subject is wasted breath. Those who do not believe that the mental health movement is be­ing used for propaganda for One .. World Government are asked to consider this statement from Dr. Brock Chisholm, a Canadian phy .. chiatrist and former Director-Gen .. eral of the World Health Organiza­tion and now President of the World Federation for Mental Health and which was issued by the latter organization following the London Conference on Mental Health in 1948: ''Principles of men .. tal health cannot successfully be furthered unless there is a progres­sive acceptance of the concept of world citizenship. This can be widely extended among all peoples through the application of the principles of mental health." From a couple of Easterners now living in Hollywood, California: "We may never see your face but we know what is in your heart. You have our admiration and our love. God oless you and keep you always."
