Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 6 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JULY-AUGUST, 1955 No. 7·8 Only Mass Impeachment of Its Nine Members Will Restore Public Confidence in the Supreme Court French Notified By Federal Agency That Our Form of Government Has Been Ditched To most Americans it may come as a shock that an official agency of the Federal government has put out information abroad that "Capitalism in the United States is a thing of the past." A press dispatch from Paris ap-­pearing in the New York Sunday Times, June 26th, says that a doc­ument being circulated in France by the United States Information Service and which contains eighty pages entitled "The American Eco­nomy, Beyond Capitalism'' con­veys the definite impression that because of the redistribution of wealth in this country, the econo­my is no longer Capitalistic. The article adds: "The booklet does not say what has succeeded Capital­ism but it insists upon the chang­ing character of the American economy and recalls that some have said it was in 'permanent r evolution'". While most Americans are familiar with efforts of the Soviets aided by their sympathizers in r e­sponsible positions of government in Washington, to bring about the demise of Capitalism, they are probably going to demand some explanation as to just when this switch from Capitalism to a totali­tarian state was effected and why a report of a change in the Ameri­can form of government was made to the French, and not the Ameri­can, people. Anybody with the brains of a dyspeptic cockroach knows that those who operate the United States Information Service, the Voice of America and similar tripe~dispensing agencies were re­cruited from the ranks of mental defectives who, in the public inter­est, should be kept behind locked doors but few realized they -Ttad gone so far as to announce the inst itution of a Welfare State to replace the American Republic. If there is any one in authority over this reckless aggregation of bat-brained Sociali sts, they had better have a look at what they are doing before they engender a "revolution" among American taxpayers which may be some­what different from the one they are so glibly telling the French people about. Christian and Pagan Deities Are Lumped Together as 'United Gods' The American people are ac­customed to strange and weird antics performed under the aus­pices of the United Nations where the human derelicts of many coun­tries huddle together like sheep in a snowstorm, formulating mass plans for the collective benefit of r egimented humanity. Perhaps the most bizarre per­formance ever put on in connec­tion with this one-world, one-mind and one-objective assembly was the "Festival of Faith" thought up by the Council of Churches and staged as a prelude to the U. N. meeting in San Francisco in June. In a movement referred to as "United Gods" American Protest­ants, Mohammedans, Buddhists, Shintoists. Hindus and ot}y.~ fol~ lowers of varying and conflicting creeds, cults and beliefs, joined together and offered up joint prayers to Christian and Pagan gods alike for the success of the United Nations where prayers h ave been taboo f rom its incep­tion. A ridiculous and sacrilegious spectacle like this could only be witnessed in an era when the individual dignity, independence and initiative of nations had been largely surrendered and where a vast segment of humanity has gone insane on the subject of cohesive effort, unified thinking and col­lective action. This gesture toward mongreli~ed religion is the natural complement of mongrelized nations and mon­grelized races and the logical af­termath of a long campaign by "liberal" churchmen to toss all the spiritual faiths of mankind into one common pot and concoct a witches brew of unified religious doctrine to be assimilated by Hea­then and Christian alike. An international crusade with the sensible slogan "Every man for his own country, his own race and his own religion" would be the most wholesome, stimulating and inspiring contribution toward a return of world sanity within the power of human beings to make. The g laring official misconduct of the apostate iurists currently s itting on the Bench of the Nation's highest Tribunal makes them ineligible to any longer serve on that body, since a Constitutional provis ion stip­ulates that they shall hold office only during good be­havior. Charged with the sworn duty of rendering deci­sions resting sole ly on the Constitution of the United States, they have wilfully disobeyed this oath by ha nd­ing down a ruling admittedly based on the ideology of an alien Marxist and on the perverted beliefs of sixteen American Communist .. dominated individuals belonging to organizations committed to the overthrow of the American governme nt. In view of t his act of crimina l de reliction, it becomes the inescapable dut y of the Con­gress to institute proceedi ngs for their removal from of­f ice a nd of t he President to replace them with persons of unchallenged integrity, understanding of American iuridical procedure and unquestioned loyalty to the gov~ erning institutions of their own country. The Supreme Court of the United States was created in 1789 soon after the birth of th e America n Republic and was given juri sd ic ~ tion in all matters arising under the newly-framed Constitution, an instrument designed for the fair, just and equitable government of a people and which was universally acclaimed as a document beyond compare During the intervening years ninety-four Americans have served as members of the Court of Last Resort and have made notable con­tributions toward the administration of American justice. This includes fourteen Chief Justices all of whom, with the exception of the last two, have reflected honor on their names and on their office by measuring up to the exalted code of off icial conduct traditionally ascribed to those favored with appointment to this lofty post. Under the able administration of the first twelve Americans who served as Chief Justice of the Court, the Constitution, the law and the evidence were the determining factors in decisions handed down by the Nation's highest Temple of Justice and even though there were often disagreements in interpretation and minority holdings, the reputation of the Court for unfailing adherence to the Constitution was never smirched by charges that extraneous influences swayed the minds of the jurists in reaching their conclusions. It was in 1937, during Roosevelt's administration that the high standards of personal and official probity, judicial ex~erience and a knowledge of Constitutional law which had been requisites for ap­pointment to this great body since its beginning, were lowered and a trend toward inferiority established which has never been halted. Today public confidence in the Court's integrity has dwindled to an alarming extent and widespread expressions of disapproval of its of­ficial actions indicate a mounting tide of resentment never before directed toward any agency of the American government. Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson was the first in that high position to tarnish the Court's unblemished record for impartial administration of justice by injecting political considerations into a judicial decision. His vote, concurred in by two other justices, to allow the man who had appointed him to take over a private business concern for ap­peasement of labor union racketeers, was the entering wedge of So ~ cialism. corruption and perversion into the Judicial branch of gov­ernment whose moral and ethical decline, deviation and decay is now complete. Along with many other Americans who do their own thinking. we have charged through the pages of the Southern Conservative that Communist influence has come to heavily dominate the three branches of the American government. Speaking for the Judiciary, Earl Warren the present Chief Justice of that body has confirmed this charge and brazenly admitted in the (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It If We Are Going to List 'Turn Coats' By All Means Let's Name Them All In view of the public record - ;.h:;: i:·~h~ee;.7;.:g o~Pc~I~=~o~~~ California Senator Tells ~~;;, ~0~~~~,[.1:~·: c~::~c;~~ Story of Commie Invasion causes, it appears slightly silly to us to read of so much hullaballoo about the three or-four American soldiers who buddied around with Communists in Korea and who are played up as "turn coats." On file in Washington is a Sen­ate investigating committee report which tells of the planned pro­gram of indoctrination which was carried on throughout World War II in which 8,000,000 American soldiers had constantly pounded into their heads by high ranking oHicials the idea that Communism was preferable to "Capitalism" as a Conn of government. We haven't heard those who initiated this pro­gram referred to as "turn coats." The record is clear in the official reports of the investigation into the Institute of Pacific Relations about the part played by Washing­ton oUicials in preparing China for the Communist take oyer. General Marshall and others from the State Department have not been classified as "turn coats." Watkins, Flanders and scores of other members of the Senate, presidential advisers and top of­ficials in the Department of Jus­tice practically ripped their su­spenders in their efforts to stop all investigations concerning Com­munist agents in government, the Army and Defense plants. We haven't heard any of them refer­red to as "turn coats" School teachers, university pro­fessors and various other educa­tional authorities have formed a constant parade into hearing rooms of Congressional investigat­ing committees and refused to tell whether or not they were mem· bers of the Communist Party, which meant in every instance, of course. that they were or had been. There has been no great clamor to designate them as "turn coats." Along in the Thirties the White House was literally swarming with Communist youth groups who were given the run of the place. If anybody has designated Eleanor Roosevelt as a "turn coat" we haven't heard of it. The National Council of Church­es. Americans for Democratic Ac­tion. the National Education As­sociation and scores of similar or­ganizations have never passed a resolution or issued a pronounce­ment that did not square one hun­dred per cent with the official policies of the Communist Party. Nobody has rushed into print to call the leaders of these groups "turn coats." And yet these young boys with immature and half-formed polit­ical economic and social views who were captured and tortured by Communists beasts are con­demned and threatened with court martial for succumbing to the s:une form of propaganda which they were subjected to at home. In the interest of consistency, a lot of silence about these young two-way victims of Communist propaganda. both at home and abroad, would seem to be in order. The oulslrmding service of Senator Nelson S. Dilworth of California in uncovering Communist attempts to infiltrate the institutions of that State hns caused his name and reputation to transcend the boundaries of Cali­fornia and has earned him the respect and gratitude of responsible Amer­icans all over the country. As chairmn.n of a Senate Commit­tcetoinvestigatesubversion, hemadc it hot for the degenerate and de­praved Communist horde which some years ago flocked to California in droves partly because of the favor­able physical climate and partly be­cause of the friendly ideological cli­mate alfordcd by the congenial movie colony, which contributed innumer­able supporters to the cause. Sometime . ago, Senator Dilworth delivered an address to the Sons of the American Revolution in which hcgavcsucha!actualpictureofthe Communist conspiracy Ulal the Sen­ate of California had it published in pamphlet form for distribution to those desiring to acquaint themselves with the behavior pattern of the alien and domestic fiends bent on wrecking the American form of government. 1t may be had by addressing a card to the Secretary of the Senate, Sacra­mento. California, requesting a cop~ of A Freedom Manifesto by Senator NelsonS. Dilworth. "Then My Old Kentucky Home, Good Night" A few years ago, in the collection oC inanities which make up her daily column, Eleanor Roosevelt included the assertion that she never went into the South and witnessed conditions there that she didn't want to cry, Whereupon W. E. Debnam of Ra­leigh, North Carolina, accuratechron­iclcrofthehistoryof the South, wrote a little book titled ''Weep No More My Lady" in which he was generally conceded by the hundreds of thou­sands who read the book to have whit­tled the lady with the big mouth and little understanding down to her proper size. Following the Supreme Court's de­cision on Segregation, Mr. Debnam wrote another book called "Then My Old Kentucky Home, Good Night," which is just orr the press. Conceding that political opportun­ists, the integrationist~. the Commu­nists, the Socialists and pressure­group propagandists have control of the press, radio, magazines, television, the pulpit and the Supreme Court, 1\fr. Debnam contends that it still doesn'tfoliowthata!rce people must submit to this flagrant invasion of their personal liberty. He would let the public school systems be integrated since they are nothing but State monopolies any way. which seek to make all children "uniform and equal" and to discour­age individual cf(ort on the part of students. He proposes that private school edu­cation be put within the reach of every child in the South through the use of tax funds already available and let parents decide whether they want their children to attend public integrated schools or private segre­gated schools, all paid for out of school funds. He p1·edicls that schools operated under Free Enterprise would be far superior to those operated ~~~~~ugh a State monopoly as at pres- "Wc don•t have to accept forced racial integration in our schools un­less we choose to do so," Mr. Deb­nam insists and adds:: "This is still thank God, a reasonably free country. Let's keep it so." July-August, 1955 American Legion Denies Approval Of Report Whitewashing UNESCO The newspapers who fell for the line about the American Le­gion giving a clean bill of health to UNESCO should make a re­traction of the misrepresentation they made to their readers. Some of the largest newspapers in Tex­as and elsewhere are guilty either of malice or stupidity in rushing to the defense of UNESCO with­out the slightest knowledge of what they were writing. In a personal letter from a high Washington official of the Amer­ican Legion we are informed that the report of the Murphy Com­mittee which whitewashed UN­ESCO has never been acted upon by the Legion and probably will not be until the national conven­tion of the Legion is held in Mi­ami, Florida in October. This of­ficial further stated that the Le­gion had no copies of the report of past Commander Murphy. Any way, it is not necessary to depend on a report by Mr. Mur­phy or any one else to learn about UNESCO. Anybody who can read can get the information about this outfit from their own published documents, which re­veal its objectives. Murphy's "two-year report" was to the effect that UNESCO is not Communistic, was not Ath­eistic, did not plug for World Government and made no attempt to infiltrate American schools or carry a program in this country. Mr. Murphy is bound to be a person of intelligence or else he would never have been elected to ONLY MASS serve as Commander of a grand organization like the American Legion but his finding that UN4 ESCO did not plug for World Gov­ernment, made no attempt to in· filtrate American schools or that it carried on a program in this country indicates that he has eith­er had a mental breakdown since leaving the Legion or that he has gone on the payroll of UNESCO. Where was Mr. Murphy when the irate citizens of Los Angeles, Houston and scores of other Am4 erican cities were putting up an aggressive and successful fight to have UNESCO contests, which were a clever media of extolling world government, removed from their local school programs? Why didn't he read the ten books put out by UNESCO for "The Education and Training of Teachers" called "Toward World Understanding" and which were circulated to practically every public school teacher in the Unit4 ed States? Especially should he have read book No. VI before outraged public opinion forced UNESCO to recall it and re-pub4 lish it with the obscene matter eliminated which it was suggested should be taught to "children un­der thirteen." Mr. Murphy's report is ninety per cent deliberate or uninten4 tiona} falsehocd and those editors who have given it to their readers as factual evidence that UNESCO is not subversive, have an obliga4 tion to retract it. (Continued From Pagel) official ruling on segregation, that the Court acted on recommendations of persons actively hostile to the principles on which the American Republic was founded. In handing down this infamous and unprecedented decision which seeks not only to weaken the moral fibre of the nation's youth, but to inva1idate statutory enactments and Constitutions of Sovereign States, Warren boldly flaunts the fact that members of the Court went ouside the boundaries of the United States and sought the advice and counsel of an unfriendly alien whose antagonism to the American Con­stitution is a matter of public record. Appended to the official decision was this notation for all to see: "Whatever may have been the extent of psychological knowledge at the time of Plessy vs Ferguson {The Supreme Court ruling in favor of the Separate but Equal doctrine) this finding is amply supported by modern authority. See generally Myrdal, An American Dilemma". By this notation, the Court admitted that their authority for their finding was based on the recommendations of an alien Marxist and sixteen white and Negro Communist (ranters who collaborated with him in the writing of An American Dilemma. AU of these sixteen collab­orators have records of affiliation with Communist-dominated organi4 zations whose objective is the overthrow of the American government. The function of the Supreme Court of the United States is to assist in the preservation of the American form of government and not to give aid and comfort to those who seek to destroy it. I.". Article 3, Section 3, of the Constitution there appears this defimhon of treason: "Treason against the United States shall consist o?l~ in levying war against them or in adhering to their enemies, g1vmg them aid and comfort ...

July-August, 1955 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page l Loudest Champions of Racial Mixing H o p e For T h e Be 5 t First to Refuse to Put It in Practice P r e p a r e F o r W o r 5 t The behavior of members of the Soviet Embassy in Washington recently in regard to mixing of the black and white races is typ­ical of those who advocate this degenerate practice for others but who have no intention of indulg­ing in it themselves. Charles Baron, a Russian-born American, has been operating a large apartment house which he owns in Washington, for many years. Among his tenants were members of the Soviet Embassy staff who occupied all but five of the eighteen apartments in Baron's building. Up until recent­ly, all tenants were white, and the Russians had been living there for ten years. Since the Supreme Court's in­famous decision on segregation, white people have been moving out o( Washington in droves and so the neighborhood in which Baron's apartments were located became preponderantly Negro. With the business acumen which has enabled him to become a rich man, Baron lost no time in switching to the new inter-racial policy which has descended on the Capital City and accordingly put up a sign in the yard indicating !~~e~egro tenants would be wei- When the first colored family started moving in, there was an exodus of Russians out of the building, the like of which had probably n o t been witnessed since the Israelites high-tailed it out of Egypt and which didn't stop until every Bolshevik had de­parted, bag and baggage. It was the Communists, of course, who started the movement for the social mixing of blacks and whites; it was Communists who instigated the twenty-two years of constant propaganda for this type of human perversion and who directed the activities of the NAACP; and it was Communists who dictated the disgraceful rul­ing of the American Supreme Court on segregation. But their concern in the matter is strictly academic and ideologi­cal. They have practically no Ne- ~~~~; a!~ a~~~fte ';~e[~e ~~ill:~ snow and they have no intention of practicing what they preach as the Washington incident proves. Even down on a local level, it is mostly those who are least af­fected personally who scream loudest for de-segregation. In Houston, for instance, there is a "liberal" lady on the School Board who takes the position that "in­tegration'' should begin in the elementary grades apparently on the assumption that these innocent little children can make no protest and would willingly fall in with this depraved procedure. Incident­ally, she has no children in the public schools herself and if she did, she is financially able to edu­cate them in private schools but she has no hesitancy whatever in urging the subjection of other par­ents' children to the most ignoble experience ever attempted in hu­man history. If there were some way to force racial deviates to first go right down the line in social con­tacts with Negroes before under­taking to force it on others, this foul and indecent movement would die a quick death. Things Our Students Are not Taught Average Person Doesn't Know and Politicians Ignore The United States is a Constitutional Republic. It is not, and has never been, a Democracy. Woodrow Wilson started this deception by referring to the United States as a "Democracy," and Roosevelt play.ed up this misleading designation for all it was worth and today otherw1se intelligent and informed persons are perpetuating the error. Ours is a government with limited Federal powers as specified in the Constitution and most of the extraneous agencies, bureaus, boards and commissions in Washington where non-elected bureaucrats exer­cise authority over the lives, actions and destiny of the American people, are un-Constitutional and would be so declared if we still had a Su­preme Court which functioned in accordance with its own specified Constitutional powers. Although they have been constantly violated and over-ridden by every national administration since 1932, the rights of the States are paramouJ.'lt to those of the Federal government. There were States before there was a Federal govemment and it was the States which created the Federal government and specifically set down the limited powers and authority which it should exercise. This was done deliberately to prevent a concentration of power in a centralized agency in Washington and because early American pat­riots were determined to break away from the idea of the "Divine Right of Kings'' and to set up a government with authority distributed be­tween the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches, and the author­ity of none to encroach on that of the other. Since the States were the creator and the Federal government their creature, it followed naturally that the States were intended to retain authority above and beyond that of the creature which they had formed. To this end the Tenth amendment was placed in the Constitu­tion specifically setting out that all powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution were reserved to the States or to the people. As a further check against excessive Federal authority , it was provided that one way of amending the Constitution shouJd rest with the States and that two-thirds of the States could propose amendments which, when ratified by three-fourths of the States would become part of the Constitution. Thus the States have the power to propose and ratify any amend­ment putting an end to national policies that are injurious to the Re­public if they so desire, but so abjectly have State governing officials of recent years refused to exercise their Constitutional rights that few members of present State legislatures know that they possess such rights. Also, under our form of government, elected public officials from the President and members of Congress on down are public servants and the people are the masters with power to dismiss at the polls such public servants who refuse to carry out their will. The egotistical Roose­velt reversed this traditional conception and not only set himself up as the Master who knew what was best for the people, but as the boss of the legislative department of government with authority to tell members of the Congress how to vote. He got by with this usurpation of power by the Executive !rom the Legislative branch of government and the first thing the American people knew, the Supreme Court was reaching outside of its official authority and assuming that of the legislative by passing social legisla­tion through court rulings. As a result of this overstepping of authority, the line of demarca­tion between the three branches has been almost blotted out and lilLie protest is made when the Judiciary passes legislation by decree and the Executive takes over the legislative prerogative of declaring war and other equally un-Constitutional switches in authority are indulged in. Since final authority is vested in the people and the States they have it in their Jl:<>Wer to h~lt these co~rupt practices and clean ~p the mess through actu:m by the1r States leg1slatures any time they make up their collective mmds that they have had enough. Mr. Austin F. Howard of Glen­dale. California, is distributing a beautiful reproduction of a picture which should make every thought­ful American pause before placing any further faith in the United Nations as a meaas of peace. It is a picture of Jose';)h and Mary and in her arms the Virgin Mary hold3 the Christ Child. This caption ap­pears beneath: " ... There was no room for them in the Inn"-Luke 2-7 • •• Nor is there room for them in the United Nations." Fifty copies of the picture will be sent to any one addressing Mr. Howard at 430 Hawthorne Street, Glen­dale, California, and enclosing one dollar. Twenty four years ago, the President of the Council of Com­missars in Moscow said: "It i.f our duty to inculcate in the minds of all nations the theories of inter­national friendship, pacifism and disarmament, encouraging resist­ance to military appropriations and training, at the same time, however, never for one moment relaxing our efforts in the up­building of our own military establishment." "Individualism must be drugged that Communism may succeed"­Joe Stalin on January 8, 1930. In spite o( repeated defeats by Communists at Yalta, Teheran, Potsdam, Korea, Austria and all other points where we met them in diplomatic combat, our national leaders are trudging hall way around the world to confer with the Soviet again, this time at Geneva. The best minds in this country bitterly opposed this undignified and humiliating concession to Moscow gangsters but their efforts were all in vain. The combined judgment of Milton Eisenhower, Nelson Rockefeller and Harold Stassen outweighed all arguments, and all good Americans can do now is hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst. We hope they took the precau­tion of putting an extra pair of pants in their luggage so they won't have to come home in a bar­rel. Dallas School Officials Refuse to Violate Law The Superintendent o( Dallas County Schools, L. A. Roberts and fifteen school administrators there are to be commended for their refusal to violate the laws of Texas by changing its segregation laws. Declaring their intention to wait until the State legislature makes a move one way or the other in the matter Roberts said: "I don't think any of us would be foolish enough to go out and flaunt State law." Agreeing that the matter was squarely up to the State officials in Texas Superintendent T. II. McDonald of Mesquite said that they must "revise or change our laws if they intend to make segre .. gation illegal in Texas." Some other school officials have deliberately violated the law by ordering de-segregat:.ion by Sep­tember. A.~ an indication of how chang­ed the R1tssians are and what per­fect confidenc.e they now have in tite ·western World, they are bringing all their own food to the Geneva Conference, with a Soviet chef to cook it and Bolshevik waiters to serve it. Much good should come out of a conference where there is such perfect trust in the conferees and such wonder­ful faith in their good intentions. Whatever any one may think about the Geneva Conference, Oltr side is really doing it up brown. The United States delegation, in­cluding relatives and friends, con­sists of 225 persons according to press reports. Leila Whitney of Chicago re­minds us of this wise warning to Americans by George Washing­ton: "One of the roads to real security is to cherish public cre­dit" and adds this sage observa­tion: "Men do not recklessly spend themselves into prosperity. Thti!y spend themselves into bankrupt­cy". Page 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: ThepowersnoldelegatedtotheUnited Stetes by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the Stale~ ere reurved to the Stale~rt~peelively,orlothepeople. An Echo From Across the Sea Concerning 1952 Campaign Through the courtesy of an of­ficial of the London Times, we are in receipt of an edition of that paper dated October 17, 1952, in which appears a rather remark­able statement. From a column written by their Wash ington cor respondent whose name is not given, we quote this excerpt: .. Yesterday one columnist reported that the General's (Eis­enhower's) old staff at NATO had been told by him before he left (Europe) not to be alarmed by anything he might do or say dur­ing his campaign. He would do, he said, acc;ording to this report, whatever was necessary to get nominated, and then he would do whatever was necessary to get elected. Once he was in the White House, however, he would be the man they had always known. This story supports those that Mr. Jo­seph Alsop has been sending from the Eisenhower caravan - that the General, now that he has left the Middle West behind, is going to talk like an internationalist and, once elected, is going to for­get the McCarthys and Jenners and moderni:te the Republican Party ... " The above appeared in the home edition of the Times and indi­cates that the President was very frank in his discussions with his English friends, which is an ad­mirable thing. We can only regret that he did not also take the American people into his confidence as to his in­ternationalist intentions. T h a t would seem to have been only fair. From a member of t11e United States Senate: "1 want to congra­tttlatc you on your lead article in tlte June edition of the South­ern Conscn,atit·e. It is not pos­sible to cure either a physical dis­ease or a political disease 1Lnless one has the true diagnosis of the cause and the line along which the cure is to be sought. But when we define the right source of our trouble1 the c1tre is in sight'1 , THE SOUTHERN CON S ER V ATIVE Perhaps Next Step Is to Give Them the Congressional Medal A determined and unflagging campaign being waged in Washing­ton to restore the standing and respectabili ty of various persons desig­nated as Communists, fellow travellers and security risks of varying degree, is making definite headway. Dr. John Peters, connected with an Atomic Energy project who was forced to resign his position when an official board declared him a se­curity risk, was given a clean bill of health by the Supreme Court which saw nothing in the record to bar him from his sensitive job. However, the term for which he was appointed had expired and it was only this technicality which prevented him from taking over again and thumbing his nose at those who are so stupid that they think the national security should be carefully guarded. In the case of Owen Lattimore, pal of Communists from the be­ginning of his public career and who gave valuable assistance in the build-up of China in preparation for the Communist take-over, found so many willing hands holding out the white-wash bucket that he decided to go abroad and forget it all. First Luther Youngdahl who traded his ambition to run for senator against Hubert Humphrey to Truman in return for a. Federal judgeship, threw out two of .the counts in the indictment agamst Lat­timore which charged that he had lied to a Senate committee when he denied he was an instrument of the Communist conspiracy. Not to be outdone, Herbert Brownell rushed in and threw out the rest of the counts and by the time it was aU over a li ly had nothing on IPR's fair-haired boy in the matter of purity, innocence and free­dom from guile. John Stewart Service was another State Department character whose part in the betrayal of Asia to the Communists was so widely publicised by investigating committees that even Dean Acheson re­fused to tolerate him any longer and threw him out. Then along came one of those Washington Federal judges whose concern in the security of his country so often outweighs every other consideration and ordered any findings of "reasonable doubt" as to Service1s loyalty, stricken from the record. This judge's name was Edward M. Curran and in drawing the robe of righteousness around the shoulders of ServiCe, he cited the decision of the Supreme Court in the Dr. John Peters case and who is there to say that the Supreme Court's superla­tive wisdom is to be questioned? Then there was the case of Wolf Ladejinsky, Russian-born expert on fhe redistribution of wealth who was bounced out of a Department of Agriculture job by Secretary Ezra Benson who charged him with being a security risk as left-wingers and liberals danced around in circles denouncing this indignity to a comrade. Meantime the Minnesota miracle man, Harold Stassen marched up to the White House and marched right back again with authority in his hip pocket to give Ladejinsky a better job in his own free­wheeling and free-spending agency. Since then the pressure on Benson must have been something to write home about because the poor man not only reversd his original charges against Ladejinsky but gave a public explanation which as a gem of bureaucratic confusion, evasion and frustration will go down in history as an all-time classic: "As far as I am concerned, a security decision, at a given time, either adverse or favorable, is not necessarily a decision for all of the future." In this great crusade for the erasure of incriminating records, there should be no discrimination and any day now we expect to learn of the complete vindication of Alger Hiss, the restoration of his full citizenship and his re-instatement to his honored place as Architect of the United Nations Charter. Mississippi Offers Inspiring Example of Courageous Action From a member of Congress: ''1 don't agree wi.th aU the things you say in your paper but I will admit that if every one prodded us as 1wrd as you do, we would no doubt be more careful in de­liberating issues on which we must t•ote." From a ranchman in Montana: ''What do you think of the mem­bers of the Senate in voting, with thee exceptions, to ratify the Austrian Treaty forcing Ameri­cans to pay for oil for Russia"? We think they should be bored for the 11ollow-horn. ---- From a Texas attorney: "Your lead article on Invisible Govern­ment in t1te June edition is one of the most profound documents to et•er come to my attention". From a friend in Quebec, Can­ada: ('Your paper is fine and the editorial about the Invisible Rul­ers who govern the United States is a masterpiece·~. As a potential safeguard against official tyranny, there has perhaps never been any more eCCective group action since the assembly of patriots at Concord, than the two hundred and fifty Citizens Coun­ci1s in Mississippi and which are spreading to other States. Composed of the most reputable and responsible citizens of the var­ious cities and towns throughout the State they represent a virile and forceful expression of grass roots resentment in Mississippi to­ward current attempts of the Su­preme Court to invalidate State laws and Constitutional rights of the people. Refusing to be intimidated by any Communist organization set up by white men for the political exploitation of Negroes, the Citi­zens Councils constitute a chal­lenge to the people of other States who are cowering in the corner, wringing their hands and begging somebody to tell them what to do. July-August, 1955 We Confess to A Very Grave Error in Estimate of Nixon The falling prestige of Vice President Richard Nixon was not helped any when he trotted down to Atlantic City to address a na· tional convention of the NAACP and gurgled all over the place about the great service to civili .. zation embodied in the Supreme Court's deciSion on segregation. At best the NAACP is a highly controversial outfit and at worst it is a Communist-dominated pro­paganda organization which is fast destroying all racial harmony in the United States. It was atrocious taste for a high official of government to blatantly align himself publicly with a par­tisan group on an issue which, to say the least, has violent propon~ ents on both sides. His purpose of course was to influence votes but we doubt that he accomplished even that. To our surprise Nixon turned left the day after the election and has gone so far in that direction that he can't advance another step without falling overboard. As a r ule, we are not easily fool­ed by politicians but must confess that we had Nixon figured out as a man with some convictions of his own concerning right and wrong and who would not jump through the hoop at the fi rst crack of the whip but, boy, how wrong we were! Fight For Socialized Medicine to Continue The impressive record of the Eisenhower administratiO!l for ap­pointing mostly those of Fair Deal and leftwing leanings was ma i n~ tained in the selection of Marion B. Folsom to head the Health, Ed­ucation and Welfare Department which the P resident set up in 1952 in order to create another Cabinet job. Folsom seems to have spent most of his adult life toying with ideas having to do with pension plans. In 1934 he was appointed by Frankl in D. Roosevelt as an advisor to the Committee on Eco­nomic Security which, in itself, is a guarantee of his sympathy for Socialist projects. However, it is perhaps the best th~ President could do as any Am­encan holding sound views on principles of government would be unlikely to accept the job. It is expected that Folsom will cont~nue the iight for Socialized Med1cine and Socialized Educa­tion which the new Department has sponsored . In the squabble over the Na­twnal Democratic Com m i t tee chah·manship fol' Texas, we are for Mr. Wright- Mm·row of Hous­ton. He has never surrendered one iota of principle in order to hold_ this job, although there is no partlcula1· honor or distinction in the office, tlte Democratic Party being what it is. As for the holder of this title having to satisfy Paul · Butler or Sam Rayburn1 that is pure and simple bunk. Neither B1Ltler nor Rayburn are capable of passing on the qualifications of a Texas Democrat since both are outright Social-ists. . v I - J, ly-A,gusl, 1955 TH E SOUTHERN C ONSER VA IIVE Page S Washington, the Nation's Capital • • • Dan Smoot to Present His Own Views in New Program We have heard nothing but hearty approval of the decision of Dan Smoot of Dallas, popular radio and telev ision commentator, to conduct his own program in future in which only one side of political issues will be discussed­the right side. Mr. Smoot is one of the soundest thinkers and most forceful speak­ers of this generation and highly informed on the fundamentals of government. As moderator on Facts Forum, it was his responsibility to present both sides of all current questions which he did in a fair and im­partial manner, but to many this sor t of program is a form of double-talk which leaves the lis­tener as undecided and confused at the end as at the beginning, un­less he h ad f irm convictions from the start. The leftist viewpoint has been played up fo r all it was worth in recent year s and Socialist propa­ganda has flooded the country in amazing proportions, the most ef .. fective of which has come from F ederal government agencies in Washington paid for by taxpayers' money. It is high time for the truth about th e superiority of the Amer­ican free enterpr ise system over Sociali sm to be pr esented to ·the American people and for the pure and undiluted doctrine of Ameri­canism t o be given a wh irl on the a ir waves. We predict that Mr. Smoot will render an invaluable service along this line. 'An Hour of Action Is Worth A Lifetime of Hesitation' When Demosthenes was asked to assign three r easons for h is suc­cess in life, he r eplied: 11f ir st, Ac­tion; second, Action and thi rd, Ac­tion." The marvelous Athenian philo­sopher and statesman who was recognized as one of the most pow­erful men o[ his time is said to have adopted this motto from which he never departed: "An hour of action is worth a life time of hesitation." It occurs to us that the hundreds of thousands of stunned citizens of ~he South who are discussing var­Ious methods for regaining their Constitu tional rights wrested from them by a Supreme Court ruling could well emulate the example of the wise Athenian cit izen and go into "Action" before it is too late. It would seem that the Lower House of Congress deserv ed great comm.endation for lopping $420,- 000,000 off of t he Foreign Aid bill except that most of us know that t hey were ;ust playing politics and making a record, knowing full well that this amount would be restored in the Senate. When they lop off every thin dime of it in both Houses and leave it off, aU good Americans wilt give them a heartfelt vote of thanks.

Burma Diplomat Tells the Truth And Finds Himself in Hot Water When Prime Minister U. Nu ol Burma expressed belief that respon­sible leaders in Washington arc not opposed to Red China being admitted to the United Nations, the lid blew off and he was chaJienged from all sides to name such leaders. The poor boob from Burma seemed to be somewhat startled at all the commotion his remarks had caused and was unable to furnish any names of his informers. Perhaps he had read Ml'. Dulles' book on Peace published in 1950 in which he said that a United Nations was meaningless unless it included all nations and expressed his belief that Red China was entitled to admission to that body Any way, the whole discussion about whether or not the Red Chinese heathens are admitted to the U.N. seems pointless to us, so long as the Russian cutthroats are in it. We have said as much as this Nu person and repeat that our "responsible leaders" will favor the admission of Red China to the U.N. just as soon as public The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has advanced one of its former officials into an executive job on the President's staff at the White House. The Negro's name is Ever­ett Frederic Morrow and t lte se­lection was made by Sherman Adams. opinion will tolerate the idea, and if they thought the American people would not blow their tops, Red China would be in there now helping the Soviets heap insults on the United States. What is desperately important is not who gets in the United Nations but who gets out of the miserable thing and It we had sound and under­standing leadership who could see an inch beyond their noses, this country would get out of it in double-quick time. We Hope For Senator's Restoration to Health We regret the unfortunate ill~ ness of Senator Lyndon Johnson of Texas which has temporarily ended his senatorial activities. A heart attack is a terrible and tragic thing and especially in the case of comparatively young per­sons like the senator. Unlike many " liberal" publica­tions, however, we fail to see in Johnson's absence from the Sen­ate, any direct threat to the Re­public or any upset in the national political picture. While it has been proved that almost anybody can be elected president so long as the large Foundations and the I n­ternational bankers cart in enough money to both national conven­tions to control them, we cannot believe that the Texas senator would be seriously considered for this job, although his illness seems to have inspired many left-wing columnists to make predictions along this line. Much as we deplore his misfor­tune, we cannot forget the sordid circumstances under which he ac­quired his seat in the Senate nor the fact that he has made no ef­fort toward the restoration of the principles on which the party of Jefferson was founded and which were so grievously abandoned un­der Roosevelt's leadership. We sincerely hope for the sen­a tor 's c~nr~pl e te and tota l r ecovery fr?m h1s 11lness and join with his fn ends ln praying for h is restora­tion to good health.

They'll Do It Every Time Disclosures by the International News Service last year that summer camps in New York operated for boys and glrls were distinctly Red-tinged, led to an appropriation by the legisla­ture of $30,000 to look into the mat­ter. A committee of the legislature was set up to investigate the camps, an authority on Communism was hired and the public awaited the report. All of a sudden the Committee de­cided to take action which they did by firing the authority on Commun­ism and calling it a dar. Page 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE July-August, 1955 The Austrian Treaty Just Another Like The Needle To The Pole Victory for the Slick Soviets N EA Gravitates To Red Fronters '.l'he Austrian treaty which was approved by the United States Senate, with only three votes against it, is like every other trea­ty which has been made since the Russians first got to be top dog in w or 1 d diplomacy during Roosevelt's administration. It guts Austria of its resources, sets the United Nations up as the supreme governing body of the world and puts the bite on the United States. It is a long, involved document wrapped in the verbiage and dou­ble- talk of professional interna­tionalists not understandable to ordinary mortals and it is no won­der that twenty members of the Senate who voted on it admitted that they had not read it, as re­vealed by Human Events. It is full of such Communist terms as "Democracy" "human rights" " without discrimination as to race, religion or national ori­gin'' and similar obnoxious ex­pressions. While it commits Aus­tria to the removal of every trace of Nazi occupation, strangely enough it says not a word about removing the traces of occupation by the Russian barbarians. In fact, the treaty commits the Austrians to the pledge of keeping intact the various monuments erected by the Soviets to Bolshe­vik "heroes" during their ten years' tyrannical rule over that helpless city. It provides for the removal of practically everything of value inside Austria to the USSR but the pay-off is the clause which provides that fifty million barrels of oil is to be sent to Russia out of Austria, at the rate of seven to ten million barrels per year which, ac­cording to informed members of the United States Senate. will pro­bably he used for war-makin~ pur­poses. This oil is to be sent free to the Russians and the suckers who must pay for it, according to the treaty, are the taxpayers of the United States!!! Although the oil is produced in Austria and de­livered to Russia, and the United States is not involved in any way in the benefits, we have to pay $150,000,000 to the Austrians for giving it to the Russians, The pitifully few members of the Senate who know what was in it made brilliant pleas for its re­jection by that body but when it came time to vote on it. Republi­cans and Democrats marched right along like sheep being run through a dipping vat and the only votes cast against it were those of Jenner of Indiana, Malone of Ne­vada and McCarthy of Wisconsin. Lawmakers have reached a pretty low state of public morality when they vote on a measure without knowing anything about it ::md if their life depended on it, not one out of ten who supported the Austrian treaty, could give an on-the-spot answer as to what was in it. To tts, it seems more than pass­ing strange that all the members of tile so-called Security Council in the United Nations are to be present at the Genet:a Conference --except Nationalist Chh:a. Was this an ot•ersight, we wonder, or u•(l ;; it deliberate? Oklahoma Gets a Dose of Tragic Results of Perversion Simon Legree in Reverse Will Be Felt For Generations Here in Texas, we have an under­standing of the temperament and phychology of colored people and, of!~ hand, it would seem that the people of Oklahoma would have a similar grasp of the subject, but apparently they don't. We have always known, !or in~ stance, that if you give a Negro an inch, he will take a mile and by keep. ing this in mind, our relations with our colored friends have always been satisfactory until Eleanor Roosevelt and other brainless agitators started busting out all over with concern about "racial relations" in the South. As soon as the Supreme Court had erupted with its filthy ruling that white and Negro children must be mixed in the schools, the Governor oC Oklahoma pcrf9rmed like a puppet on a string. Apparently wishing to be the first to whip into line, he ordered that schools in that state would be "integrated" at once, if not sooner. The better element of that State went into action and did what they could to minimizC\_ the unfortunate situation. They began dropping Negro teachers from the school payrolls to prevent the possibility Ot having col­ored teachers Cor white children. Then up pops up a cocky represen. tativc of the NAAC:P, the propaganda. outfit which Is now throwing its weight around all over the place, and started cracking the whip and mak­ing threats of lawsuits against Okla· homa authorities for not retaining Negro teachers for their forthcom~ log "integrated" schools. They were not satisfied with the Governor's action which mixes white and black children together in the most intimate contacts but they in­tend to add insult to injury by insist~ ing that black teachers instruct white children. We hope the white racial deviates who fell in with Moscow plans and aided in bringing about this mongrelization mes!l, get fed up and we predict they will before too long. Defense of Americanism Is Punished as Criminal Act George H. Todt of Los Angeles, member of the Sons of the Amer­ican Revolution and, by all ac­counts, a responsible and reput­able citizen of that State has been tried by the National Broadcasting Company and found guiltY of de­fending the American Constitution and holding out the American form of government as preferable to a one·world State. As punishment for this activity which, in the eyes of NBC, is ap­parently a criminal offense, Mr. Todt was summarily taken off of a broadcasting station in Los Ang· eles without the usual two-weeks notice and without even a chance to explain to his vast listening audience why he was leaving the air. In spite of frequent evidence to the contrary, there are hundreds of thousands of outstanding Amer­icans in California who do not hold membership in anY subversive or­ganization plotting for the over­throw of the American govern­ment and resentment against this high-handed and un-American act of illegal censorship by champions of totalitarianism is reported to be at a high pitch. A lot of criticism has been leveled at U, S. Appeals Court Judge David L. Bazelon, Washington, D. C., who, following the current trend in judicial thinking, reversed a District Court deci!lion and held that a Negro man might adopt a white child which had been born to his white wife, illegi~ timately, before his marriage to her. District Court Judge Alexander Holtzoff had previously refused to permit the adoption on the very legi. timate ground that the man was a Negro and the child proposed to be adopted was white. He argued that the child's future would be imperiled when he was older by the fact that his legal father was a Negro. But Bazelon said" that "denial of the adoption could not rest on a dis­tinction between 'Social status' of whites and Negroes'', and his ruling was concurred in by the two other characters on the court, one John A. Danaher and Walter M. Bastian. Personally, we can't see that it makes much difference one way or the other so far as the future of the unfortunate child is concerned. If he can live down the disgrace the mother has wilfully brought on him by marrying and living with a Negro, he should be able to survive anything, even the fact of having a Negro stepfather. The degenerate mother deserves no sympathy but the lost white child is a pitiful product o.f the racial perver~ sion which is currently rampant in the United States, and whose tragic aftermath will shame unborn genera­tions. Nikita Kntschev, while visiting Tito in Yogoslavia recently, told our American ambassador to that country that Senator Joe Mc­Carthy was a "terrible problem" in America. To which Elizabeth Lippitt of San Francisco adds that Senator Joe's no problem in Am­erica but an awful problem to the Kremlin killers. ~<If we only had more problems like Senator Joe, Kruschev and his blood-thirsty buddies would be no problem to the United States or to any one else," the San Francisco lady de­clared. Senator William E. Jenner call~ ed attention of the Senate to the curious phrase in the Austrian r::~~~~~.~~~cJe N!~io~:c~~~o!~ als" are defined as «individuals who are nationals of any of the United Nations!' This, Senator Jenner pointed out, is obliteration of the national identity of the United States and implies that all Americans are «United NatiO?lS Nationals." If any one calls us a United Nations National, they had sure better smile when they do it. Just because the United States Senate committed treason against their country on that day in August, 1945, when they voted us into the United Nations is no reason why good Americans must submit to this insult. The best minds in the United States have insisted all along that the Russian take-over of this country will be at the Conference table so naturally the chilling thought occurs to many that Ge­neva may well be the time and the place. The National Education Association makes it a practice to set up auxiliary organizations on almost every imagin~ able subject to extend its sphere of influence and implement its far-flung "educational" activities. It has what it calls the "NEA Na~ tiona! Commission J.or the Defense of Democracy through Education." Under the law of averages it would seem that NEA, having so many chairmen to select for its various subsidiaries, would occasionally pick one that wasn't a Communist Fronter without knowing it, but somehow that never seems to happen. From 1941 to 1947, their"Defensc'' chairman was one Alonzo F. Myers shown in official reports of Congres. sional investigating committees as actively associated with a half dozen aggressive, two· fisted Communist fronts one of which he served as pres­ident. These were the New York College Teachers Union of which he was elected president ln 1940, the Ameri­can Committee for Democracy and In­tellectual Freedom, Greater New York Emergency Conference on In· alienable Rights, Council of United States Veterans, American Commit~ tee for Democracy and Intellectual Freedom and others. In 1947 another "Defense" chair­man was chosen by NEA in the person of Ernest 0. Melby who must either have been younger than Myers, or else busier, since he had only had time to join three Communist Fronts before he was picked by NEA to "defend" Democracy through Educa· lion. These were American Committee to Save Refugees, Committee on Ed· ucation of the National Council of American-Soviet Friendship and Fed­eration for the Repeal of the Levering Act, the Levering Act being one that required teachers to swear that th~y did not belong to any organiuttion advocating the overthrow of the American government, and !hat thC'y would support the American Consti­tution. In 1948-49-51, Harold Benjamin "defended'' Democracy through Edu­cation for NEA when he wasn't sign­ing public statements addressed to the Congress opposing continuance of the Dies Committee 'which was investi· gating Communism. John W. Davis held forth during 1951 in the "defense"job between his activities with the American Youth Congress, sponsoring Protestant Di­gest Associates and opposing continu· ance of Dies Committee. Jennie L. Davis is present "Defend~ er" of NEA's Democracy through Education but dope on Jennie Is not available. We wonder if there is something in NEA's charter which provides that all those associated with it officially must be of this brand" or if it is just a case of natural selection.

We do this to see how accurately we have analyzed a situation or how badly mistaken we were. The following lead editorial was published in the September, 1952 edition of the paper and appeared six weeks before the national elec­tion of that year. It was titled "Large Segment of American Voters Are All Dress­ed Up and No Place to Go" and said in part: We have never known so many people to be so thoroughly alarmed over the State of the Union as at this good hour and we have been an observer ot political reactions fora long time. The general attitude, according to comunications and practically tons of literature, from all sections of the country, is one of hopeless­ness, disillusionment and despair. If we undertook to answer all letters anxiously inquiring if there Js anything that can be done to stave off inevitable Socialism, we wouldn't have time to get out a By their own admission, most of them have let the situation rock along for years paying little or no attention as Roosevelt and Truman steered the ship of state toward the dangerous shoals of International· ism and World Government as are­placement for our Constitutional Republic. Now, at long last, with a belated ,;ense of responsibility as citizens possessed of an over-pow­ering fear that it is too late to beat back the onrushing tide. This fear stems !rom their earn­est consideration of the two men nominated by the major political parties as candidates for president and their realization that neither fills Qie desperate need for a vir­ile, outspoken and uncompromising champion of the principles which spe11 the difference between Ameri­canism and tbe totalitarian type of government which has put the peo­ple of t~o-thirds of the earth in chains. Primarily, they were dumbfound­ed at the manner In which Southern delegates to the Democratic Con­vention in Chicago let them down for vaguely, they seemed to consid­er that salvation lay in the develop­ment of strong Southern leadership at Chicago and a Southern revolt .erowing out or the convention which would serve as the nucleus of resistance to domination of the Federal government by unioncers and big city machine bosses When the Southern delegates meekly laid down, one by one, and let the CIO-Pendergast mob walk over them, that hope was gone and with it the chance for constructive and organized resistance to Tru­manism corruption and National­Socialism. Not having tied our paper to the kite of any candidate or political party, and continuing to believe that the answer lies with Congress, and not the next president, we do not suffer the "lost orphan" feel­ing that pervades many hearts, but we certainly share their ap­prehension about the current situa­tion where World Socialists are breathing down our necks and wait­ing to take over. Many meetings have been held in various sections of the country concerning a Third Party move­ment and numerous splinter parties have been able to place candidates for president on the ticket in their respective States. Any one with a knowledge of practical politics, however, is com­pelled to face the fact that these scattered and extraneous move­mentsarcfutileintheprcsentcmer­gency. Whether we like it or not-and most of us don't--either Dwight D. Eisenhower running on a so­called Republican ticket or Adlai Stevenson campaigning on a so­called Democratic ticket will be the next president ot the United States and that is all there is to that. To add to the tragedy and dash any hopes of those who hold that a president of the United States should be an unyi~lding partisan 6f his own country and dedicated primarily to its advancement, in­terests and well-being, the United Nations Issued a press Telease fol­lowing the Democratic Convention which said: "The nomination of Governor Adlai Stevenson of lllinols was gen­erally welcomed today by United Nations delegates .. , The selec­tion of Mr. Stevenson together with the nomination of Dwight D. Eisen­hower as the Republican candidate, was taken as an assurance that, whoever was elected, the basic for­eign policy of the United States would continue to follow the pat­tern fixed by President Truman , . , The fact that both Governor Stevenson and General Eisenhower are internationalists Is expected to reduce uncertainties over the policy that the United States will follow in the General Assembly this Fall ... " This stamp of approval placed on both candidates by the United Nations insures that the American people can expect no more consider­ation at the hands of the next presi­dent of the United States than the citizens of backward countries around the world will be privileged to enjoy. It means that our next Chief E:-:ecutive must divide his allegi­ance equally between the interests of the industrious taxpayers of the United States and the welfare of shiftless mendicants of foreign lands. This is evidence that our accept­ed foreign policy for the next four years is based on the Marxian phil­osophy of "taking from each ac­cording to his means and giving toeachaccordingtohisnccds." It is a sad day in the history of a nation when the people in select­ing their leader, are forced to choose the lesser of two evils but, Brother, that's just exactly what we are having to do in this year of our Lord, 1952. It is a fundamental right of the Americanpeopletohavetwocandi­dates !or president who represent opposite political ideologies and In these perilous times with the future of the Republic hanging in the bal­ance, it is doubly essential that we enjoy this prerogative. We should be able to choose be­tween a candidate who believes in Constitutional government without equivocation or exception; who boldly denounces corruption in gov­ernment, including infiltration of Communists and domination by la­bor unions or any other group or class; who is unalterably opposed to Socialism as embodied in the United Nations and who is alert to the danger to our sovereignty by any subversive world group; who is outspoken in defense of the rights of the States to conduct, New York Is Getting Something That It Could Do Without Americans for Democratic Ac­tion take credit, in their official publication ADA World, for hav­ing accomplished the establish­ment of a "Human Relations Com­mission" in the city of New York which has just been approved by Mayor Wagner. There will be fifteen members of this Commission and a paid executive director empowered to poke into just about everything that goes on. Off-hand, it is hard to see where there will be anything for this Commission to do in "Human Re­lations" that has not already been done there unless they are ii~ur­ing on gradually easing all white people out so there will be room for all the Negroes, Puerta Ricans, foreigners and other so-called "mi­nority groups" in the great me­tropolis. Any way, it looks like it is go­ing to be tough from here on out on any native, white, Christian American who is compelled to Jive in old Manhattan. Asinine statement to end all asinine statements: 1'Therc un­doubtedly is a Communist under­grotmd in this country but cer­tainly it is not as highly placed as people believed.

''The testimony of mankind re­veals that men perfectly honest as individuals will oftimes as chosen representatives of the people, rob one class for the benefit of an­other and commit pubHc larceny in the name and will of the ma­jority."- Alexander Hamilton. •· I confess to a real apprehen­sion so long as Communists are able to secure ministers of the gospel to p1·omote their eviL work and espouse a cause that is alien to religion ... I fear so long as school boards and parents tolerate conditions whereby Communists and fellow travellers under the guise of academic freedom can teach our youth a way of life that eventually will destroy the sanc­tity of the home, that undennines faith in God, that causes them to scorn r e s p e c t for constituted authority and sabotages our re­vered Constitution!' - J. Edgar Hoover. without any outside interference, the internal affairs of the people in­cluding their social customs, em­ployment practices and any other rights granted to them by the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. We should, on the other hand, have the chance to vote !or a can­didate who represents the opposite principles and who ad·vocates State Socialism as promulgated by Roose­velt and Truman for twenty years. This opportunity is not to be granted us for both candidates hold such similar views on many vital issues that they might as well be cross-filed on both tickets. We have said often and we re­peat that we endorse no candidate. Our candidates will be those Con­servative Democrats and Republi­cans in Congress who, we believe, will continue in the future as they have in the past, to save us from total and complete Socialism. Factual Case That Gives A Double !Illustration To the unthinking mind the Stu­dent Teacher Exchange Program not only sounds like a harmless proposal but possibly appeals to the uninformed as a valuable pro­cedure in the advancement of ed­ucation. It is designed to advance educa­tion all right but. un~ortunately, the type of education 1t advances is that prevalent in many scho.ols and colleges in this country w?1ch holds, and impresses on Amen~an students. the idea of the superiOr­ity of Communism or Socialism over the Capitalistic or Free En­terprise system of government. This exchange of students and teachers is known as the Ful­bright program out of deference to the Senator from Arkansas who was instrumental in setting it up. The whole set-up is shot through with Socialists and Communists and while there are many in­stances to support this, one case will give a fair picture of the whole proceedings. Under the Fulbright program, the State Department, in 1953, named Napthali Lewis and his wife, Helen Lewis, both of whom had been associated with Brooklyn College, to go to Italy as repre­sentatives of this country under the program. The Committee on Government Operations, of which Senator Jo­seph R. McCarthy was Chairman was given .sworn testimony con­cerning the Communist Party membership of Mrs. Lewis and evidence that Lewis had attended Communist meetings. (This was in 1953 before Communist sympa­thizers in the Senate had succeed­ed in sabotaging all bona f~de in­vestigations into Commumst in­filtration in this country). Both Lewis and his wife were summoned before the Commitlee and asked concerning their mem­bership in the Communit Party and about their attendance at meetings where the overthrow of the American government was discussed. Both arrogantly and impudent­ly refused to answer questions on the grounds of the Firth Amend· ment and this applied also when Mrs. Lewis was asked if she had held Communist meetings in their home. Before the hearing was finished the State Department notified Senator McCarthy that it had can­celled the Lewis' appointment to go to Italy under the Fulbright program, but this step was only taken, of course, because of the exposure of the Lewis couple by the Committee. This case serves the double pur­pose of illustrating the type of persons who are "exchanged" un­der the Fulbright program and it also shows the effective steps that were being taken to expose the Communist conspiracy at that time and why Watkins, Flanders, Americans for Democratic Action, Committee for an Effective Con­gress and their sympathizers among presidential advisers and in the Department of Justice and other agencies moved heaven and earth to stifle the loudest voice in \Vashington being raised a~ainc;t Communist conspirators.

The unorthodox behavior of the Su· preme Court Justice is so familiar to Americans that it no longer occa­sions surprise or shock Fotmer Klansman Black Muscles Into the Act Following the published plea of Supreme Court J ustice William 0. Douglas for the admission of Communist China to the United Nations, former Alabama Ku Klux Klan member, Hugo Black, who is also a Justice on the Court broke out with an interview in the press in which he said: "The world could do no better than to follow the polit ical and social ideas of the late Albert Einstein." Albert Einstein, as every one knows, came to this country from Germany and immediately align­ed himself with Communist Fronts in numbers wh ich are claimed to run anywhere from forty to sev­enty- five, all of which advocated the overthrow of the American government. Just a short while b e­fore his death he issued a public appeal for scientists to refuse to answer questions concerning their Communist affiliations. A few more cracks like this lat­est one by Black, coupled with Douglas' appeal on behalf of Chi­nese Communists, as well as a re­cent ruling by the Court admit­tedly influenced by Communist supporters, and we may find th is country uniting in a popular de· mand that, as long as the present personnel of the Court remains un­changed, the Kremlin must pay their salaries. Immoral Proposals of U. N. Agency Advanced An individual named Brock Chisholm is the Director General of the World Health Organization, one of the numerous affiliates of United Nations. As an illustration of how the lowest depths of human society are plumbed in selecting heads of these UN agencies, Chisholm pub· licly champions the idea of inter­breeding all races. In Ottawa recently he advised Canadians that they should have fewer children of their own and, instead, should adopt children from other countries preferably "those with brown or yellow skins." "As far as I am concerned, the sooner we are all interbred, the better" this degenerate speci­men of humanity added. Public indignation reached such a point that the "decorator" for though it were legal. their beautiful new library got stuck with one of the repulsive objects to the tune of $8,000 which was the amount he had paid some odd character in Pennsylvania named Bertoia for the gruesome thing he proposed to hang on the library wall. From all accounts, this was a huge metal sheet which the "artist" who conceived it called a "mural" and was adorned with odd bits of refuse from a junk yard such as cast-off hubcaps, horse shoes, rusty nails, can openers, bottle tops and bits of discarded bedsprings. After Workmen had hung it, it appeared for a time that the man responsible for buying it might suffer the same fate. Startled viewers ran practically shrieking from the building, local papers were swamped with protests and drastic action seemed imminent when the great masterpiece of the Pennsylvania genius was suddenly hauled down and carted off to some unknown destination by the official who had bought it. Similar nightmarish objects, however, are claimed to be still reposing in the Dallas Art Museum whose management refuses to budge in the face of public clamor for the removal of a collection of junk by Communist "artists". "Modern Art" is defended by off-color members of human society on the ground that it is too delicate, subtle and ingenious for common, ordinary minds to comprehend, but it is nothing of the kind. It is merely the perversion of art and beauty by the same influence which has so successfully perverted American government, education, religion, and morals and there is nothing complicated about it to those who have followed and understand the general, over-all world plan of demoralization and contamination of the human mind. A "modern artist", for example will paint an elongated dragon fly gently reposing on a manure heap as it contemplates an empty cognac bottle, a Samurai sword and the grinning skull of a pre· historic ape, t itle it ~<Dawn of Reason" and sell it for thousands of dollars to some poor sap who treasures it as a pass-por t to the higher realm of cultural and artistic society to which he aspires. If appreciation of meaningless trash erupting from perverted minds spells "culture" we believe the vast majOrity of the American people will continue to glory in being classed as ignorant, illiterate and un .. educated low-brows Thievery and Looting of Citizens' Purse Is the Favorite Indoor Sport of Congress For years American taxpayers have been the helpless victims of political gangsters in Washington who use the Sixteenth amendment to club them over the head while holding them up. There is scarcely a day when Congress is in session that its mem­bers do not commit grand larceny against the citizens, a crime for which they would be arrested and sent to prison except for the status of immunity which they enjoy as elected representatives of the people. American lawmakers have acquired the reputation of being the most open ~handed and generous solons in history-with other people's money-and there is never a demand for financial assistance from any country in the world, no matter how preposterous, that they don't reach down in the jeans of the taxpayers and fork it over, together with the gracious assu rance to the recipients that they needn't bother to pay it back. Their confiscation and extortion of uncounted billions of dollars from the American people to give to riff-raff Socialist and Communist countries throughout the globe constitu tes official criminal action that is without precedent in the history of organized governments. Widespread resentment against this unconscionable behavior on the part of those elected to protect American, rather than foreign, interests is fast bu ilding up and especially against the latest raid on the taxpayers for a sixty-million-dollar gift to that crooked, double­crossing old horse thief, Nehru of India, who is working hand-in-glove with the Soviets against the government of the United States. Nothing short of repeal of the Sixteenth amendment will halt this constant and consistent thievery and looting of the purse of the long­suffering citizens of the American Republic Senator Butler of Maryland warned his colleagues in the Sen· ate not to be too optimistic about the Geneva Conference and in­formed them that this present conference will make 3,401 we have held with the Russians since they were recognized by Roose­velt in 1933. He was courteous enough not to add that none of the promises resulting from those conferences have been kept, so we will say it for him. To Subscribers This year, as always, the July and August editions are combined and the next edi­t ion will be out in September. In the meantime we ask that each subscriber try to get at least one additional person to take the Southern Conserva­tive. PLEASE. The Texas University Board of Re­gents ordered that some branches or the University would accept colored students in the Fall and the El Paso School Board has ordered de-segre­gation in that area beginning with the next school term. Unfortunately, Texas' allorney gen· eral went to Washington last Decem­ber to appear before the Supremo Court in connection with its ruling on segregation although Texas was not involved in the suits which brought about the ruling. The act of the at­torney general in appearing before the Court seems to have given the impression that the ruling applied to Texas. The attorneys general of other Southern States paid no attention to the ruling and will continue to ignore it and' the schools in those Stales will operate as heretofore. The best legal minds in the country hold that suits would ha\·c to be filed in the thousands or school districts over the nation and that the Court would have to rule on each one scpar. ately since it is not within the author­ity of the Court to make general rulings which repeal State laws and Constitutional provisions. This would take many years to ac­complish and there would be tl\e ho~ that, in the meantime, the mem_l?!!.!:". ship of the Court might be chang<'d to include those who are familiar with Constitutional procedure in the Unit· ed States. Meantime, concerned Texans are waiting for proper action by tha State's constituted authorities to pre .. vent violation of the State's Constitu­tion and laws. Report Proves McCarthy Was Right All Along More than a year later, the Sen· ate investigations subcommittee has issued a report in the Peress case which completely vindicates Senator J oseph R. McCarthy in the ma tter, although no such vin­dication was necessary to convince t he right kind of Americans of the rottenness of the whole affair. Peress was promoted and hon­orably discharged on the day Mc­Carthy advised the Army of Pc~ ress' Communist connections and asked that he be court-martialed. Since then the Army, in an effort to explain, has passed the buck from one official to another. Now the Committee finds that blunders were made all down the line and covered up but puts the final re· sponsibility on Robert Stevens and John Adams who both resigned under a cloud and on four more officials in the Pentagon The newspapers who played up the McCarthy-Stevens hearing for · all it was worth and shaded their views in Stevens' favor ran the article vindicating McCarthy on the back page or down among the want ads.
