Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 8 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JANUARY, 1957 No. I Americans Have Lost Most Rights Guaranteed Thelll in Constitution On With the Dance and Let Squandering Be Unconfined On the early morning of January 1, 1957, such Americans as were not already suffering from a hangover, were jarred into a throbbing headache by the headline which was blared across the front page of their morning paper: 11President's Budget Calls for Increase in Spend­ing. Tax Cuts Ruled Out". The article which followed outlined the President's program of "Modern Republicanism" together with comments from the Chief Executive concerning his proposals. Men and women who must put up this additional money for the "increased spending", were advised that during the fiscal year beginning July 1, they probably will have to cough up $3,000,000,000.00 more than was filched from their pockets during the fiscal year which ends June 30th. During that period it is estimated that approximately $69,000,000,000.00 constituted the budget while in the coming fiscal year some $72,000,000,000.00 is slated to go down the drain by spending, giving and throwing away. The sole reflection of a rainbow of hope in the President's program was beamed to the Negroes of the South who, through tacit agree~ ment of those in authority, seldom pay income taxes and with rare exceptions, are never prosecuted for such evasion, according to popular belief in Dixie. To them was held out a glowing promise that the influence and prestige of the Executive Branch of the Federal government will be placed squarely behind attempted legislation ~esigned to lift their social and political status to the level prevaihng in Reconstruction Days and to partially restore the measure of colored domination over White Southerners which they enjoyed during the period when Thad­deus Stevens wrote the ticke&. To assure Negroes this power over White citizens, Attorney Gen­eral Brownell has prepared a bill which, if passed, would, on whispered accusation by a Negro, cause a White man to be denied his Constitu­tional right of Trial by Jury, hauled into Washington and tried by a board of hand-picked bureaucrats authorized to mete out such punish­ment as champions of a mongrelized society might dictate. Foreigners in Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Israel, Yugoslavia, England, France, Morocco and other far-flung places of the earth were also given assurance, by inference, that their interests will be placed high on the agenda when the American Congress, during its 85th session, gets down to the serious business of re-distributing the earnings and the holdings of thrifty, provident and hard-working citizens of the American Republic. The only segment of human society to whom no crumb of com­fort was tossed, were the lowly taxpayers of the United States who must dig up and come across with the money to pay the bill. And by late afternoon of New Year's Day, we suspect that there were many contemplative American citizens who were secretly long­ing for a return to the Good Old Days of Warren G. Harding and the comparative morality, integrity and Americanism which attended his reputedly corrupt administration NEW YEAR'S GREETINGS TO OUR READERS: FOLLOWING OUR RECENT OBSERVANCE OF THE BIRTH OF CHRIST AND AS WE ENTER THE NEW YEAR OF 1957, WE ARE REMINDED THAT THERE IS LITTLE PEACE ON EARTH AND LESS GOOD WILL AMONG MEN AND THAT THE ORGANIZED FIGHT AGAINST CHRISTIANITY IS THE BITTEREST IN ALL HISTORY. TO PRESERVE OUR COUNTRY AS A CHRISTIAN NA­TION AND TO REPEL THE ASSAULT AGAINST OUR RE­PUBLIC BY ATHEISTIC FORCES, WE SHOULD REAFFIRM OUR FAITH IN - AND IMPLORE OUR NATIONAL LEAD­ERS TO RESTORE - THAT REVERED POLICY WHICH FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY AND A HALF KEPT US SAFE AND SECURE: "FRIENDLY RELATIONS WITH ALL NATIONS: ENTANGING ALLIANCES WITH NONE". During the past quarter century as millions of Ameri­cans have slumbered, dreamed and drifted, their sov­ereign citizenship, which was once their most priceless earthly possession, has been gradually taken away. Today, we enjoy about as many of the rights, privileges and freedoms originally granted us under the Consti· tution as Chinese Coolies are permiHed to exercise in their Asiatic Communist domain. No longer dare we claim the prerogatives of a proud and independent people firmly holding the reins over our leaders in a disciplined and limited government but, instead, have degenerated into creeping, crawling and fawning slaves humbly begging concessions and consideration of our masters in Washington. Whether a miracle of Provi .. dence will restore enough iron to jelly-limber spines to enable us to retrieve our lost citizenship is a matter that is in the lap of the gods. There is only one sane, sensibJe and meaningful resolution which the American people could make at the beginning of this year of 1957 and that is to quit kidding themselves that they are any longer a free people and to resolve that from this time forward they will set about reclaiming a treasure more precious than gold which they have so heedlessly thrown away. If our heads had not been softened, our character weakened and our wits dulled by twenty-five years of vicious, subversive propaganda unceasingly beamed to the American people, we would have known what was happening to the only remaining government on earth where Christian principles prevailed and where tribute was paid to the dig­nity of man and which degenerate and depraved aliens had sworn to overthrow. As it was, we either stuck our heads in the sand, whistled down a rain-barrel or took refuge in the belief that if we just kept quiet, the enemy would go away and let us keep the sweet land of liberty so dearly bought and paid for with the blood of American patriots in the long ago. Seldom is a country toppled over through direct frontal attack.­It was the secret and insidious gnawing away of the principles of its government and the debasement of the morals, integrity and spiritual values of its people which has felled strong nations in the past and caused Empires to fall in nearly all cases of recorded history. Likewise, subjugation of the people by tyrannical rulers is seldom achieved through openly-declared intents to rob them of their rights. This evil power is acquired instead by corrupt leaders who come bear­ing gifts, offering doles and promising intimate and social services to the electorate which no responsible government on earth has the moral or legal right to bestow. It is through this back-door method, or sneak attack, that the American people have been deprived of their Constitutional rights and stripped of their dignity and authority as sovereign citizens in a country where basic law proclaimed them as the masters and elected officials as their public servants sworn to obey and carry out their commands. As the first month of a New Year is traditionally an occasion for taking inventory of their stock, Americans who care enough about the matter to investigate, might check up and find out for themselves how many of the assets of citizenship originally bequeathed them are still in their possession. They should also count the liabilities they have incurred by permitting unlimited authority to be conferred on irresponsible and power-mad politicians who have abdicated their first responsibility as defenders of the American Republic in order to strut across the public stage as international statesmen and benefactors of all mankind. Those who take the trouble to make this check are not going to (Continued on Page 2) Million 5 of American 5 Think It-The Southern Con 5 e rv ativ e Say 5 It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE January, 1957 Powerful Group of Americans to Launch Campaign to Stave Off National Socialism An efficiently organized group whose political action during 1957 and the following three years has been intelligently and painstaking~ ly mapped out is the Campaign for the Forty-Eight States, with head­quarters in Memphis, Tennessee. Minus any promotional feature, this organization has been set up, financed and its course charted by hard-headed practical business men recognized for clarity of po­litical thinking and who realize that the time has come in the United States when the course o{ the Federal government must either be re-directed into Consti­tutional channels or concession made to a complete take-over by National Socialism. The methods of procedure which the campaign for the Forty-Eight States is adopting, indicates the mature judgment and sound plan­ning which has gone into the pre­liminary preparation for the pro­gram. While it is their intention to ex­ercise the Constitutional right of petition to Congress for the re­dress of wrongs, much of their work will be done through State legislatures, thereby providing the movement with a grass roots back­ground while, at the same time, recognizing the fundamental truth that the authority of the States is paramount to that of the Federal government, under basic American law. Awakening the Sovereign States to a realization that they possess this paramount authority and en­couraging them to exercise it, will be one of the important functions of the organization. One of the first activities of the group will be the launching of an extensive television p r o g r a m which has been more than two years in the planning. This pro­gram is designed to give Ameri­can citizens a true understanding of the American form of govern­ment, its limitations and its func­tions, and to offset Socialist propa­ganda which has been beamed to television viewers from the begin­ning of this medium of communi­cation and which has deliberately given them a misconception of the powers and authority of a central­ized governing body in Washing­ton. In launching this ambitious pro­gram of Americanism, the Cam­paign for the Forty-Eight States is naturally facing almost over­whelming odds but presumably is proceeding on the theory that where a comparatively few are gathered together in a good cause, right must ultimately prevail. There are at this time, hun­dreds upon hundreds of highly fi­nanced organizations not only in this country but throughout the world posing as educational, cul­tural, religious, political, civic and charitable groups whose common objective is the overthrow of the American form of government and who are working diligently to­wards this end. ManY of these organizations have the backing of Washington, of the United Nations, of large Foundations, international bankers and of other powerful figures in the one-world government pro- Rockefeller Comes to Rescue Of Fort Worth Urban League The Fort Worth Urban League was addressed by Winthrop Rocke­feller iri December in an "inte­grated" meeting. The affair fol­lowed the faiuure of the United Fund of Fort Worth to collect its quota of funds for charity because of the inclusion of the League among its beneficiaries. The invitation to Rockefeller was understood to have been ex­tended in an effort to give pres­tige to the Negro propaganda or­ganization whose real aims were recently publicized in Fort Worth. Rockefeller is now living in Ar­kansas and is reported to have an­nounced that one of his purposes in moving there was to bring about total integration in that State. We have had written inquiries from subscribers wanting to know "what kind of White persons in Fort Worth would attend a mixed meeting of Negroes and White people". All the information we could give them was that they were the "kind of White persons in Fort Worth who would attend a mixed meeting of Negroes and W h i t e people." Period! From. Society HiU, South Caro­lina: uThank you for your cour­age in publishing a paper that gives its readers facts instead of fiction. When reading the South­ern Conservative, I am reminded of a motto inscribed on my college ring ltYe ~hall lcnow the truth and the truth shall make ye free. H From Phoenix, Arizona: alf I had to give up every paper except one, that one would be the South­ern Conservative." gram and whose manifold and di­verse activities dove-tail smoothly into one over-all plan for the total demolishment of Constitutional government in the United States. Expectation of close cooperation by the lay citizenship of the coun­try in combatting this formidable host of enemies of Americanism which is lined up in massed for­mation against the perpetuation of this Republic, is known to lie be­hind the decision of those directing the Campaign for the Forty-Eight States to take on the job which they have laid out !or themselves. Accordingly, the nation will soon be blanketed with an appeal for one million new members, for the infinitesimal sum of one penny a day, to line up in the fight for the restoration of Constitutional Gov­ernment in the United States. Chairman for the Campaign for the Forty-Eight States is dynamic Robert B. Snowden, business man and Mississippi Valley planter and the mail address of the organiza­tion is P.O. Box 1112, Memphis 1, Tennessee. If one million Americans are not willing to enlist in the fight and to contribute one penny a day, or three dollars and sixty five cents per year, then, indeed will the anti- American"' propaganda which has been showered unceas­ingly on the American people for over two decades, have succeeded in not only destroying national pa­triotism and individual initiative, but the will to survive. Millions of American people, it seems, must always be going crazy-wild over something and when some crackpot starts some­thing, they follow like sheep. For several years their hearts have been bleeding over the <(plight" of Negroes. Right now they are stam­peding over the Hungarians and before long, it will be something else. In the meantime, there is al­ways Elvis Pressley to fall back on. Americans The best thing that has come out of Washington lately is the 1-umor that Attorney General Brownell will resign soon to go into private law practice. OJ course whoever succeeds him will be of the same caliber but most Americans would breathe easier if the present enemy of Constitu­tional government in that office would take a powder. (Continued From Page 1) like what they find and if there is a spark of patriotism, national pride and loyalty to their own country lying dormant within their heart, and mind, they are going to turn over a new ~eaf. and get back on the job as a sovereign citizen of the country of thetr btrth. No American citizen is any longer allowed to keep the money which he earns or the property which he acquires, as the Federal government has a first lien on all his possessions and the mortgage can be foreclosed when any foreign country needs money and decides to garnishee American taxpayers' funds in the Federal Treasury. The American government was set up as laid down in the pre­amble to the Constitution to "form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic (not foreign) tranquility, provide for the com­mon defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity". We have permitted the sacred purposes of this provision to be violated, distorted and stretched to the point where these blessings are now guaranteed to the people of all the world while, at the same time, being withdrawn from the people of the United States. This enforced responsibility to finance the whole world is the heaviest liability against the peace, safety and security of the Ameri­can citizen ever incurred in history and there is no individual, board, bureau or commission in Washington who could come within billions of dollars in estimating the total amount of money which American taxpayers have been committed to pay in the years, if not centuries, ahead. A large part of the citizen's salary and w~ges is confiscated before he ever gets his hands on it and the value .of his property is liquidated through exorbitant taxes, inflation and official conformity to the Marxian demand that wealth must be shared, the Austrian Socialist's orders being carried out through give-away programs, foreign aid and the financing of extraneous social projects absolutely unrelated to the Constitutional functions of the American government. If he is a farmer, an American citizen no longer has authority over his own operations and can only plant such crops as are permitted him by Washington politicians who never hoed a row or ploughed a furrow in their life. If he forgets and puts a half bushel of seed in the ground over and above his allowment, he can be fined and thrown in jail. His hogs, his cattle and his chickens may be threatened with starvation but if he violates the code to plant feed for them, he is regarded as a criminal and so treated by agents of the Federal govern­ment. The greatest and most abject surrender of the rights of the citi­zen has been brought about by the State Legislatures and the Congress of the United States whose members have the heaviest obligation to protect these rights, since such bodies are elected by, and are directly responsible to the people. This relinquishing of power by the legislative to the Executive and Judiciary arms of government could have been stopped dead in its tracks in the beginning if the electorate had in­telligently used the ballot to halt it. But the people refused to become alarmed and the result is that now the States who were given paramount authority over the Federal government because they created it and limited its power, have grad­ually stepped aside and deferred to a centralized Washington govern­ment fQ.r so long that they are now told that they have no right to operate their own schools, buses, swimming pools and golf courses without permission from Washington, to say nothing of their lack of authority to prosecute a person for sedition, regulate the output of their own gas wells or perform any of the other functions delegated to the States by the Constitution and specifically prohibited by that document to the Federal government. Congress has been even more prodigal in giving away its preroga­tives, both Houses of that body having surrendered their Constitutional responsibility to declare war, disperse American troops, approve or reject treaties with foreign countries, amend the Constitution, levy tariffs, control immigration and, above all, to dictate the terms and restrict the appropriation of monies wrung from the American peo­ple by all methods up to and including extortion. It's a futile gesture now to stand around and wonder .. what may happen because it's already happened. We've had it! Any one with the discernment and understanding of a crippled cockroach should realize that we abandoned Constitutional govern­ment and accepted National Socialism in 1945 when the United States Senate sold us out as a free and independent Republic and delivered us into the keeping of a one-world organization set up by aliens hell­bent on dragging the United States into the Socialist orbit. They've got us there now and the question is whether we will meekly bow our heads and submit as willing captives or whether we can summon forth the same unconquerable impulse toward free­dom which attended our ancestors at Valley Forge, and beat our way back to that high plane of responsible, fearless and uncompromising citizenship which is our heritage from those who founded and gave us, to have and to hold forever, the greatest form of government ever conceived by the mind of mortal man. . God. spee~ _the day when an awakened American people may re­gam their ongmal status where every voter was a sovereign and every citizen a king.

Barnes. Associate Secretary General of the Council, had issued a detailed report concerning the "contacts" the National Council of Churches has with the Federal Government. countries of Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Jordan, not one of which nations Federal government to step in and are mentioned in the Constitution of the United States as integral occupy the field with its program of parts of this Republic and in whose interest an American President Socialized Medicine. is authorized to act. Dr. Barnes told of "informal con­ferences, telephone conversations and correspondence between officers of government and the staff of the National Council of Churches" and added that these contacts "are greater in volume and probably more impor­tant in consequences than formal pub­licised contacts." Intimating that heads of government call on the Council instead of the other way round, Barnes offered this cryptic suggestion: "Increasingly the initia­tive in the exchange of information comes from officers of the govern­ment." Barnes said that in general, the contacts with the Federal govern­ment fall into six categories: Pastoral Relationships; exchange of informa­tion and advice; comments Qn deci­sions of the judiciary; assistance to constituent churches in their contacts with government; consultations with officers of the Executive Branch; pre­sentation of concerns and positions of the constituent churches, as repre­sented in National Council action, in connection with the legislative pro­cess. Agencies contacted are Depart­ment of State, Interior, Agriculture, Justice, Health Education and Wel­fare, Defense, Civil Defense, Census Bureau, Selective Service, U.S. Dele­gation to the United Nations and "many others." The Council has been frequently accused of being a political, more than a religious, organization and this admission by one of its officials proves these charges well founded. Since the position which the Coun­cil has taken on leading issues is identical with that of the Commu­nist Party, it is clear that their "con­tacts" with Federal officials is partly responsible for the un-American trend in both Ioreign and domestic poli­cies. Aside from the enoromity of the offense of an executive demand for absolute dictatorial power, there is the little matter of the Congress not being in position to grant this request unless it is possible for authority vested in the Congress by the Constitution to be parcelled out into small sections and distributed among all those who may ask for it. - It must be remembered that when the Senate voted approval and acceptance of the United Nations in August, 1945, their action , according to the fine print in the Charter, conferred on that One~ World body the authority to disperse American troops to any part of the world in the interest of "keeping down aggression and establishing world peace", when in the opinion of the Security Council it might become necessary. It must also be recalled that the Senate conferred this same authority to send American troops anywhere in the world on NATO in 1953 when it voted approval of this vest-pocket edition of the United Nations. And they did this without rescinding the authority previous~ ly conferred on the United Nations. The Constitution specifies that the power to declare war and order American troops into action rests with the Congress solely since mem­bers of that body are elected every two years and are closest to the minds and hearts of the American people, and subject to the popular will. This authority was jealously guarded throughout the life of the Republic until recent years when this precious prerogative became of such little importance to the type of politician currently sitting in that great body, that they gave it away twice and will probab1y be pre­pared to surrender it again. The fact that the President is anticipating taking over in the Middle East is total and absolute admission that the United Nations is a dismal failure since our only excuse for joining it and bleeding taxpayers white to pay the major part of the expense was because it was going to take care of such situations as that in the Middle East. Because of total impotence of the United Nations the President seems to feel that the job has fallen back on the United States, but there is no in­timitation whatever that, since the UN has failed ignominously and the United States must take over its job, that we withdraw from this ignoble experiment in international meddling and exile it from our shores. They Could Do A Lot of Cleaning Up Before They Ciet Around to This Nothing makes us more furious than to read of strenuous efforts made in New York to eliminate all trace of a Southern accent from the speech of potential stars of television and radio. Americans who are shocked at this bald statement by a Council official concerning its political activities can do their part to stop it, and, collec- This is the more confusing and tively, can end it. They can refuse amazing in view of the fact that to contribute money to their church those who plan the programs for so long as it remains a member of both m.ediums ~ore and more are this national group whose sympathies swampm~ the atr waves and the lie with the subversive element bent screen With so many Negro per• on the destruction of the American • formers that there soon may be lit­Republic. tie time left for White entertainers. They seem to like a Southern ac­cent when a Negro is thrown in with it. It must, therefore, be only the Southern accent of White peo­ple to which they object since a Southern accent is as characteristic of a Negro as the kink in his hair. Most Southerners remembeT vividly when the pale hand of Gunnar Myrdal, Swedish Marxist, reached out acToss the ocean and wrote the decision of the Supreme Cou'rt on segregation in the em·ly spring of 1954. But what they probably don't know is that they are helping to pay Myrdal's sal~ ary. Myrdal is Executive Director of the Economic Commission for Europe, a United Nations affiliate, and the United States, perennial sucker in such matters, pays more than thirty-five per cent of the expenses of the outfit. It will be no surprise that this Barnes is a Communist-fronter of long standing having been cited as a member of nine organizations com~ mitted to promoting the interests of the Communist aparatus in the United States, including the American Youth Congress, Emergency Peace Mobiliza­tion, Fellowship of Reconciliation and six others including the Socialist Party. Christian Herter who has been appointed by the President as Un~ der Secretary of State to succeed Herbert Hoover, Jr., was publicly praised by Americans for Demo­cratic Action, according to a press release on December 11. And we never hear of any seri­ous attempt being made to smooth out the raucous Brooklynese ac­cent of a certain segment of their performers or to tone down the re-pulsive nasal twang which is in­herent with them. Also there seems to be nothing done about announcers who do not appear to realize that there are such thlngs as vowels in the Eng­lish language and who insist on calling jewels 11jools", who pro-nounce cruel as Hcrool" and who make themselves ridiculous by go­ing English temporarily and refer .. ring to suits as 11Shoots". We concede that there are many things that those in charge of the entertainment industry can do to clean up and improve the quality of their offerings to make them less offensive to discriminating and fastidious listeners but we be­lieve we reflect the sentiments of many when we advise them to keep their dirty, cotton-pickin' hands off of Southern accents. For sometime now, there has been an active program along this line with an organization set up to solicit funds from wealthy Americans, called the National Fund for Medical Edu­cation. Funds obtained by this organi­zation were to be applied toward car­rying out the worthy purpose of pro­viding medical education to students, increasing hospital and nursing facili­ties and aiding in the extension of medical services to the American peo­ple generally. The Ford Foundation gave them a $10,000,000 program of grants in 1956. Unfortunately however, the same thing happened which occurs when­ever any undertaking or project of any nature is launched in the United States. It was soon infiltrated by the Reds. Well known Communist fronters and .sympathizers gained a foothold and worked themselves into policy making positions with authority over all matt(>rs relating to the various ac­tivities in which the NFME was en­gaged When an investigation was finally made, it was found that lhe organiza­tion was functioning as a Red propa· ganda medium on the side and that, among its extracurricular activities, was the distribution o.f thousands of Public Affairs pamphlets by the no~ torious Maxwell S. Stewart, former editor of Moscow News and who has forty citations for subversive affilia­tions in the reports of the House Un~ American Activities Committee. Stew­art's propaganda pamphlets cover practically every subject of general interest to the American public, into which Red propaganda has been clev­erly woven, and when any organiza­tion springs up, he has a pamphlet ready discussing whatever subject such group may be organized around. Heading the Women's Division of the National Fund for Medical Edu­cation was Deborah Flynn, reported as a member of the Brooklyn chapter of the Congress of American Women, cited by the House Committee on Un­American Activities and by the At~ torney General of the United States as subversive and Communist. Other Communist fronterg who had become id"entified with the NFME and were active in its extraneous affairs were Margaret Culkin Banning, Rafph Lowell, Benjamin E. Mays, Anna M. - Rosenberg, Eustace Seligman, Morde­cai Johnson, Leona Baumgarten, Fan­nie Hurst, Mary Margaret M:Bride, Margaret Webster, and Spyros P. Skouros, all of whom have reportedly a record of Red front affiliation. After securing documented evidence from outside sources, giving the back­ground of these persons, five medical men exposed the set-up and provided information to the medical fraternity which is expected to bring about a purge of undesirable elements and en­able the organization to resume its worthy objectives. The New Year should hold out a message of hope to all Ameri~ cans but because of exorbitant taxes, inflation, rumblings of for­eign wars, our own foreign give­away programs, appeasement of Communists and attempts at in­tegration, most of them are Singin' the Blues.

Whenever she is not doing what­ever it is that anthropologists do, she writes and lectures on the ne­cessity for a One-World Govern­ment and the mongrelization of the black and white races in the interest of the human specie.

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE They're not Forced to Parade and Any Way the Birds Ciot There First A Washington newspaper man writes in _his column that the people there are all in a dither over a situation wh1ch threatens to cause em­barrassment during the inaugural parade in January. It seems that the Capital City, in keeping with the curre~t. heavy trend of immigration to our shores, has been invaded by mllhons of European starlings who insist on roosting in th~ trees along Penn­sylvania Avenue over which the inaugural process10n must pass. Every known device to drive them away has been tried but ~11 efforts so far to dislodge these little Brown ali~ns have p~oved as In­effective and futile as previous attempts to dnve some b1g Red ones out of the agencies of the Federal government. Our suggestion would be that everybody just calm down and leave the birds alone. After all, no matter how contemptuous and disrespect!~! the be­havior of these feathered creatures may be toward the relatively few Americans who will be marching in a parade beneath them, it won't differ too much from the treatment which their human counterparts in the Congress, on the Supreme Court and in the White House have been according all sovereign citizens of the United States for a long time. We Select not One but Two Ambassadors From "American Branch of Communist International" High-ranking Americans with influence enough to impress the Senate of the United States should call that body's attention to a very peculiar coincidence in connection with two new ambassadors whom they will be called on soon to confirm. Of course it will probably be a futile gesture since the Upper Chamber has indicated many times its determination to approve any appointee who is not a confessed murderer or an opium addict. Its position in such matters was noticeably clear in the cases of Simon Sobeloff and Paul Hoffman, when a majority of its members went right down the line to the consternation of a heavy percentage of the Amer­ican people. Maybe, in the view of the Senate, it is not important but we think it should be mentioned in passing that White House appointees James Zellerbach who has been named as Ambassador from this coun­try to Italy and Ellsworth Bunker selected to represent us in the same capacity in India are both on the list of trustees of the Institute of International Education, Inc., as shown by official literature of that organization. If members of the Senate are not familiar with the Institute of International Education, Inc., they will find reference to it in one of their own Congressional reports, Union Calendar No. 838 of the 84th Congress, 2nd Session, titled "The Communist Conspiracy", Com­mittee on Un-American Activities, United States House of Representa­tives, published May 29, 1956. Beginning on page 4 of this official document of the Congress, is a list of groups and organizations headed n American Branches of the Communist In~rnational", and further on down the list, on page 6, appears the name o( the Institution of International Education, Inc., as one of the "American Branches of the Communist International." The listing of this "Institute of International Education, Inc./' ap­pears along with that o( the Communist Party of the USA, Ameri­can- Russian Institute, Young tommunist International, Red In­ternational Labor Unions, Young Communist League of the U. S. and scores of shni1ar organizations and groups. Of course the fact that these two men (who are being sent abroad to represent the United States at his critical period when American taxpayers are being stripped of billions to "fight Communism/') are both officia11y connected with an organiaztion which is classed by a Committee of the American Congress as part of the Communist In­ternational, may not be of interest to the Senate of the United States or to the American people. • We just thought we'd mention it. We sincerely hope that no rec­onnnendation is made to Congress by White House advisers for the amendment or repeal of the Ten Commandments on the ground that this document, like the Con­stitution, is outmoded and not adapted to meet conditions in a new and changing world. If this should happen, the C on g r e s s would probably go along. From a former member of the American diplomatic corps: "Yom· November-December edition has just reached me and I have read enough of Ote data to say to you that this number is in a class by itself for valuable comment and analysis of what is going on in this big battle which we face to save the Nation from National So­cialism, One-World Government and httegration. I personally wish that your paper c o u l d go into every home in the United Stat-es." Mr. Fulton Lewis, Jr., is ·to be commended for announcing pub­licly that he will not attend the Inaugural Ball in Washington be-~ cause the State Department has invited as an "1tonor guest" the Communist Ambassador, Zarubin. The White House could have pre­vented t1te invitation being ex­tended by the State Department to this puppet of Soviet as­sassins, but took no action. A seven-point program to retain segregated schools in the State will be presented to the Texas Legislature it has been announced. ra~:ne~~eats:~:he w,~~:le s~~u~d~x~~ have been tntroduced and passed two years ago, will be sponsored by Representative Reagan Huff­man of Marshall, and many other East T ex as lawmakers with a heavy percentage of Negroes in their district. Januc..-y, 1957 Harsh and Unusual Punishment Meted Out to Russia by the UN We just know that Bulganin, Kruschchev and all the other Kremlin butchers are simply trem­bling in their boots with fear be­cause of the <~punishment" meted out to them by the United Nations for their murderous attack on the Hungarian people. After pondering the subject carefully to decide on a form of punishment that was commensu­rate with the crime the United Nations decided to just go the limit and give them the works. So they passed a resolution in which Russia was slapped on the wrist with a wilted periwinkle wrapped up in a piece of strong tissue paper. The United States formulated the resolution which was also sponsored by nineteen other equal­ly enraged nations. It was even intimated that if this does not get the job done and put the Russians back in their place, the United Na­tions will get even tougher and just come right out and tell them "Now you stop that, you old meanie". That'll fix 'em. Program of the Reds Has Three Main Objectives So far as the current session of Congress is concerned, the Reds have three main objectives which will be pushed with vigor by In­ternationalists, one-worlders and advocates of mongrelization in both Houses. These objectives are the break· ing down of the McCarren~Walter Immigration law and opening the door wide to enemy agents; dis­crediting and weakening the in­fluence of the Subcommittee of the Judiciary in the Senate dealing with internal security, and the Committee on Un-American Activ­ities in the House investigating Communist infiltration into the United States and to change the cloture rule of the Senate to pre~ vent filibustering by Southern senators. This, in a nutshell, is Moscow's program in the United States for the year 1957 and if these ends could be accomplished, there would be no need for the Soviets to drop bombs on us for they would have achieved what they want without resorting to physical at­tack. A district judge in Tallahasse, Florida, Dozier Devane, made an official statement in that city re~ cently, the enormity of which was probably overlooked by the aver­age reader who casually perused it in his daily paper. It was a re­mark which indicates how drastic­ally the o1·derly American govern· ing system has been perverted and Constitutional government de­stroyed. Said Duvane in discussing the situation brought about by un­ruly and defiant Negroes who dis­regarded State and municipal laws concerning segregation on buses: "Rulings of the Supreme Court have made every segregation act or law of any State as dead as a door nail." Compare that assertio!l with the provisions of the Consti­tution which not only grants no such autho1·ity to the Federal gov­ernment but specifically forbids it. Read it and weep! J anuary, 1957 TH E SOUT H ERN CON S ER VAT IVE As Usual We Approach the Welcome to Tito Desecrates Problem From Wrong Angle Tradition of White House As deeply as we sympathize with the brave Hungarian people who fought desperatel;r and ho~elessly against Commumst assassms, we think it very unfortunate that our leaders seem to feel that the solu­tion lies in moving practically the entire Hungarian population to the United States. In the first place, the United Nations was set up for the spe­cific purpose of . stepping in and stopping aggressiOn S';Ich as w~s committed by Sov1et Russia against Hungary. If that outfit had been what is was supposed to b& instead of a bungling aggregation of One-World Socialists, it would have quietly stepped in and stop­ped Russia from her mur~ero';ls rampage in Hu ngary. But th1s d1d not happen. The UN flopped .in­gloriously and could ~o n.othmg ~~~~ra!r~~l~ac~i~~ :X~~~~;a~~ ;~ yak. If the UN could have acted to stop Russia, the Ht,mgarians could have stayed at home where they belong and where they have the right to be. Conceding the utter futility of the UN to perform, the second chance to stop Russia from butch­ering the Hungarians was up to the United States. which also muf­fed the ball. This government could have immediately informed Soviet Russia that if its troops were not instantly removed from Hungary and the Hungarian cap­tives released recognition of Rus­sia would be withdrawn, an em­bargo placed against all goods in­tended for shipment to foreign na­tions friendly to Russia and all foreign aid cut off immediately to any country suspected of re-ship­ping American materials and goods to the Soviets. This would have stopped the massacre in twenty four hours and permitted the Hungarians to re­main in their own country for Russia cou ld not continue her plun­der of helpless nations without aid and support, indirectly, from this country. But, instead, we let Russia mow the Hungarians down, car t thou­sands off to Siberia and after it was over , we announced meekly that we would bring the Hungar i­an refugees over h ere, thereby turning Hungary over to the Com­munist beasts. There was of course no v o t e or referendum by the American people to find out if they wer e willing to take over the responsibility. The b ig shots step­ped in and committed American taxpayers to the expenditure of a few more billion dollars and called it a solution to the Hungarian tra­gedy. There are, of course, u ncounted numbers of enemy agents among the refugees for the Soviets are too smart to overlook a bet and we can be sure that they didn't. Also among the refugees th ere are thousands of young men who should feel a r esponsibility t-oward the defense of their own country and who must have been reluctant to run away and leave it to t~e Soviets. Those who can leave their own land to those who would des­poil it surely are not the kind of people we need here. We alr eady have too many of that type. (Houston Chronicle, December 19, 1956) informed sources in Washington say that President Eisenhower has made known through diplomatic channels that he would welcome a visit to the White House from Josip Broz, the Yugoslavian peasant's son who became a dedicated Communist and now is known as Mar­shal Tito. Thus would the White House, once the home of such liberty­loving men as Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln, extend its has .. pitality to an enemy of everything in which the people of the United States believe. Tito, whose love of gaudy uniforms and food makes him resemble the late unlamented Goering, has been one qf the leading Communist figures for a generation. He joined the Communist party in 1920 and in 1928 was sentenced for Communist activities in Yugoslavia. During the Spanish revolution he was one of the Communist agents sent by Russia to eliminate anti-Communist elements from the Loyalist army. When World War II broke out, he organized a partisan band in Yugoslavia and soon was in opposition to Mihailovitch, the patriot who was leading a resistance movement against Germany and also was opposed to turning the country over to the Communists. The Western Allies had supported Mihailovitch , but on Stalin's insistence they abandoned him and threw their support to Tito. The patriot was tortured and murdered by Tito on phony charges. At the end of the war Tito took over and has inflicted on the people of Yugoslavia a tyranny as brutal and repressive as the Russian brand of communism. He has suppressed religion. In 1946 he had Archbishop Alojzijc Stepinac arrested and tried on phony treason charges. The archbishop was sentenced to 16 years in prison. Pope Pius XII elevated Stepinac to the rank of cardinal. It enraged Tito and he broke off relations with the Vatican. In 1951, when Tito was trying to get in on the American squan­dering of tax dollars abroad, he released Stepinac, but ordered him to serve only as a parish priest in his native village. Tito got the Ameri­can aid, more than $1 ,000,000,000 of it. This aid has helped him to prevent a revolt among the oppressed Yugoslavian people. Tito's army shot down several American planes around the Yu go~ slavian border, killing American servicemen dedicated to the defense of our nation. The dictator refused . to make any kind of reparations, virtually thumbing his nose at the United States. Time and again Tito has proclaimed his adherence to atheistic communism. This is the vermin to be extended offici al America n hospi tality in the White House. Honoring him is, of course, a slap in the face to all enemies of atheistic communism. It will serve notice to the world that our gover n­ment has abandoned all those principles on which it was founded, principles which this nation followed until recent decades, principles which made the United States the great nation it is. Refugees May Wind Up With More Rights Than American Nationals . Before the Congress and the Ameri· the General Assembly five years ago, can people go completely overboard in that principle had not yet been put the matter of refugees, we would Jnto the form of a Convention by the suggest that they read the Charter United Nations" and then he added provisions of the International Refu~ of the Geneva meeting, "The time had gee Organization of the United Na- come to put the refugee's rights in tions. writing .. • ". They can get full and startling in­formation on the subject from a docu­ment- published by the Department of Public Information of the United Nations and which may be had for 25 cents. It is called "Magna Charta for Refu­gees" drawn up in Geneva in July, 1951 and b perhaps the least publi­cized document put out by the United Nations which has published many tons of tracts, pamphlets and bro­chures whose cost runs into the mil­lions. From this "Magna Charta !or Refu­gees" we learn that when a refugee comes into a country, he is merely exercising not a "privilege" but a "right" guaranteed him under interna­tional law as represented by the United Nations. In outlining the purposeg of the Ge­neva Convention as laid down in this Magna Charta for Refugees, Dr. James M. Read, United Nations High Com· missioner !or Refugees, explains on page 6 that "although the principle that refugees should be dealt with on an international level wu decided by So the Geneva Conference proceed· ed to put refugees' 1'rights" into writ­ing and although there is no evidence that this "Magna Charta for Refu­gees" has been adopted by the United States, three representatives from the United States were there and helped draft the recommendations. Although it is not shown that this "Magna Charter for Refugees" Js in effect, it expresses the will and the thinking o! the One-Worlders on the subject and since they dictate United States policy, we may wake up to find that the refugees which we take in under a Christian impulse may turn out to have more rights than we have as Nationals of the United States, but that, after all, is not saying much. Some of the "rights" which this "Magna Charter" proposes to secure for refugees have to do with their "right" to jobs, housing, social se­curity, freedom from deportation and other considerations designed to make it more cozy !or the newcomers in this country than !or those who were born here. Page 5 Friends Service Speakers Are All of A Pattern The American Friends Service Committee's Institute of Interna· tional Relations, which is bringing the notorious Milton Mayer to Texas for a speaktng engagement in the Spring, specializes in the type represented by Mayer whose "spit on the Flag" remark some years ago infuriated Patriotic Americans throughout the coun­try. Another character who has been sponsored many times by the Friends is Otto Nathan whose last public appearances were on behalt of co-existence with Russia during his speakJng tour in 1956. When Nathan was subpoenaed by the Committee on Un-Ameri­can Activities of the House of Rep­resentatives last June and queried about his alleged Communist af­filiations, he was one of the slick­est and eeliest witnesses ever to come before that body. When pressed by committee counsel to answer yes or no as to whether he was, or ever had been, a member of the Communist Party, Nathan found more ways of reply· ing without answering the ques­tion perhaps than any one the Committee had ever examined. About all he would admit was that he was an " intellectual" and that he was a friend of the late Albert Einstein. In the long-run the committee was forced to get its informa­tion about this individual from documented records furnish ed by others, including articles in the Daily Worker, as Nathan refused to answer, or skillfully evaded, all questions concerning his vari· ous activities both in this country and abroad. From a retired business man in Portland, Oregon: "I am continu­ally amazed at the constant high quality of your hard-hitting pub­lication. You always agree with me in everything without know­ing what I think, and that is rather marvelous. You hit like a sledge-hammer and yet you do it in such entertaining fashion. I am always delighted at your javelin thrusts at the Devil and his mul­titude of puppets. Your command of language intrigues and fascin­ates me. Your political awareness is vast; your reasoning faultless; your attacks devastating; your sense of humor is abundant and your Americanism magnificent." (Wow! What a compliment to try to live up to). According to the Gallup Poll, church attendance is dropping off and only 46 per cent of the Ameri­can people attended religious serv­ices in 1956 as compared with 49 per cent in 1955. To us this does not indicate that Americans are less religious, or that spiritual values have decreased. It could indicate that they are becoming fed up with the performances of many political preachers. It is not very satisfying to the soul to go to church to hear the Word of God spoken from the pulpit and, instead, to be regaled with the Social Gospel of Lenin and Karl Marx. From a member of the United States Senate: "Your friendship means a great deal to me and I hope I may continue to merit your confidence in the years to come." This particular one will always merit our confidence as well as that of all other good Americans. Page 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE January, 1957 Communist H9pes of Inspiring Racial Hatred Are Now Reaching Full Flower Committee of Congress Asks for Return of Segregation in D.C. We assume that Moscow's Com­munists and their low-lived pup­pets in this country who initiated the movement that resulted in the adverse decision of the Supreme Court on segregation in the South are getting their full measure of satisfaction now that gunfire and riots have flared up in Birming­ham, Montgomery and Tallahas­see in connection with attempts of Negroes to violate segregation laws on buses. Negroes have had their place on buses in the South just as White persons have had theirs ever since there have been buses to ride and both races were perfectly con­tent but the Supreme Court deci­sion and the big play by both Pres­idential candidates for Negro fa­vor and votes have been too much for the colored mentality to ab­sorb and properly evaluate in its true light. Only a little more than two hun­dred years removed from the jun­gle, their savage passions have been aroused and they see in all this by-play by cheap-skate poli­ticians the culmination of the Communist dream of Negro dom­ination of the South so vividly pic­tured to them in widely-distribut­ed pamphlets, and the horrors of Reconstruction Days being re-en­acted. The result will inevitably be bloodshed and let us make no mis­take about that. And when that time comes, the responsibility will not rest with the persons, black or white. who fire the shots but must be laid at the feet of high-ranking and low-thinking persons in New York, Washington and Hyde Park whose social, political and moral concepts are on a level with those of the worst enemies of the Con­stitution of the United States and of the American way of life. Mr. American Taxpayer: Did you know that one billion (not one million but one billion) of your money has been taken away from you and your children and given to the Communist murderer, Tito of Yugoslavia? Did you know that this same Tito who was given one billion good American dollars by Washington politicians once shot down several American planes killing American servicemen and that Tito refused to m a k e any kind of reparations? Don't take our word for it but read the edi­torial from the great Houston Chronicle appearing elsewhere in this edition. Incidentally, Tito is soon to be an honored guest of the 'White House in Washington, according to press reports. Ain't Modern Republicanism grand? How rapidly resentment and hatred is being engendered in the hearts of colored for white people becatLSe of pro-Communist med­dling is illustrated in a recent in­cident in Fort Worth. A little Ne­gro girl was standing on the cor­ner with her mother waiting for the light to change. A kindly white woman standing near reached over and patted the little girl on her head, whereupon the little pickaninny whir1ed around and said to her mother: "What for did dat white trash put her hand on my haid"? "Open Covenants Openly Arrived At" Would Seem the Best Policy We find it impossible to generate much enthusiasm for the secret con­ference which took place between the President and Nehru at Gettys­burg, with no members of the re­spective staffs of each conferee pres­ent. Perhaps our lack of appreciation of such covert conversations is due to the fact that Roosevelt was given to cozy little secret conferences with heads of foreign States following which the United States was usually the recipient of a dirty deal. A!ter all, a President of the United States is merely the public servant of the citizens who elect him, (or at least he was before we entered into One-World government,) and the bus­iness he transacts with foreign lead­ers is the concern of all the. people and should be conducted on an open and above-board basis. Since the main objective of Nehru's visit to this country was to plead the cause of one of his buddies, Mao Tse­Tung of Communist China, apprehen-' sive Americans may wonder what the President said to him in the matter of the eventual acceptance of the Chi­nese brigands into the United Nations and their recognition by the United Slates. Reds Will not Rest Until U.S.Immigration Law Is Emasculated Ever since the McCarran-Walter Immigration law was passed in the interest of the internal security of this country, super-human efforts have been made to tear it down These attacks have come from Reds in this country, spear-headed by the Daily Worker which plugs incessantly for its repeal or amendment in favor of unrestricted immigration of enemy agents. The Hungarian situation is being used for all it is worth to make loop­holes in the Jaw and since the Presi­dent frequently adds his plea for changes which will allow additional thousands of foreigners to enter, don't be surprised if the law is greatly emasculated during the coming ses­sion of Congress and the internal security of the Republic thereby ma­terially weakened. From a masculine reader and subscriber in Glendale, Califor­nia: "Out of sheer admiration for the December edition of the finest paper published in the South - and there are a number of them that come to my desk- the writ­er desires to express the opinion that your paper is a gem with every facet of its various editorials sparkling with truths which only under the guidance of a master hand could have been gathered toget11er in one edition." ----------------------- McCarthy Lays It on the Line About Presidential Pet Hoffman Senator Joseph R. McCarthy, one of the ablest members of the United States Senate, who all too seldom rises to his feet on the floor of that body but who says some­thing worth while when he does, let go at the beginning of the cur­rent session with some pertinent facts in conpection with the defeat of another sound-thinking senator at the last election. He charged directly that the ar­ticle appearing in Colliers just be­fore the last election by Paul Hoff­man in which he described Senator Herman Welker of Idaho as Ha man of dangerous thinking and reckless conduct" contributed to the Idahoan's loss of the election He did not credit Hoffman with any influence himself, but claim­ed that because Hoffman's article was approved by Mr. Eisenhower, it carried weight. During his talk, Senator Mc­Carthy referred to Hoffman as a "throwback on the human race" which, in our humble opinion was a compliment which Hoffman does not rate. We believe we could have thought of a more apt phrase to describe a slimy leech on the body politic. The Wisconsin senator admitted that Eisenhower did send some "milk and water" letters into Ida­ho favoring the re-election of Sen .. ator Welker but implied that Hoff­man's article more nearly repre­sented the President's wishes in the matter. As a result of Welker's defeat, Senator McCarthy pointed out, the Republicans lost the Senate. We hope no other makes the mistake we once did by confusing the American Education Associa­tion with the National Education Association. We referred to the National Education Association as the American Education Associa­tion and then apologized to the latter. The American Education Association is an organization composed of loyal Americans seri­ously concerned in retaining, or restoring rather, educational standards in this country in keep­ing with American tradition. The National Education Association is a political anti-American propa­ganda outfit which is ·on record as favoring practically every Red­sponsored policy so far proposed. The Women's Republican Club of Hollywood, California, has changed its name to the Constitu­tion Club and has withdrawn from the GOP organization. This action was taken on the g1·ound that ~<the Republican Party has been almost completely taken over by interna­tional elements". uThose who expect to reap the blessings of jl·eedom must, like men, undergo the fatigues of sup­porting it.'' - Thomas Paine. From a subscriber in Utah: "Your paper is the best yet. There is no space wasted. Even the fill­ers are gems of information." A majority of a House investigating subcommittee has strongly recom­mended that racial segregation be re­stored in the Washington Public school system An investigation into the subject by a House Committee on the District of Columbia, found not only that the integration of the races in the nation's capital has greatly lowered the edu­cational standard formerly prevailing in Washington schools but that other intolerable problems have arisen as a result of the experiment in racial mixing. Among these problems was that of discipline which has become more and more difficult to maintain as a result ol the obscene behavior of colored boys who apparently took the Su­preme Court decision as a license to openly insult young white girls by engaging in all forms o! unspeakable conduct. The forced and unnatural mixing of the races in the schools was also shown as practically emptying Wash­ington of its White population as hun­dreds move out daily and are re­placed by hordes of blacks who are crowding into what is predicted will eventually become the "Black Capital of the World". The plea of the committee for a re­turn to segregated schools will, o! course, make no impression on mem­bers of the Supreme Court who could' reverse their infamous ruling, but low­grade politicians seldom show any disposition to rectify their errors no matt~r how vicious, immoral and dam­aging such mistakes may be. u . .. Announcement comes that our National Debt has gone up an­other billion dollars ($1,000,000,- 000) to prevent Britain's public debt from getting higher than she can afford; this because Britain defied the United States and, in concert with France and Israel, invaded Egypt. Though England's action was in violation of a mutual pact, in violation of her UN pledges, and contrary to the gen­eral welfare and common defense of the United States; still the United States Treasury is boTrow­ing one billion dollars to give to England. This at a time when our own National indebtedness is more than twice greater than the in­debtedness of all the rest of the world combined. T his crowning stupidity of an unconstitutional, illegal and suicidal foreign policy is nothing new. It is just one more unpaid-for patch fitted into a crazy quilt with which we are covering the rest of the world to protect it from the icy blasts of a cold war of our own making; at the same time leaving ourselves barer and barer in an increasingly cold and unfriendly world" - D ON BELL , PALM BEACH, FLORIDA. During the coming year, it would be well for each and ev·ery American to resolve to raise the level of his thinking and to con~ centrate on the perils which threaten this country and try to do his part in overcoming them. The world is full of people with loose tongues suspended in empty heads but serious thinkers and profound analysts of the State of the Union are at a premium. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 7 Tennessee Should Be Judged by Its People Simple Folk Song Is Given Role And not by Politicians Who Represent It In Anti- Christian Propaganda The great State ol Tennessee is now suffering perhaps more than any oth­er State in the nation from lack of capable leadership in high office, most ol its top-flight officials having become objects of scorn for their · contemptible performance as public servants. Public reaction against Governor Frank G. Clement for his continua­tion of "government by bayonet" in Clinton is claimed to be gathering momentum throughout the State as this arrogant young upstart continues to kowtow to the Communist-inspired integrationists who are attempting to force the mixing of the races in the public schools of the Volunteer State. Tennessee sentiment on the mixing ol the races is widely regarded in that State as having been demon­strated in the repudiation of Senator Estes Kefauver in the recent elec­tion not only by his home State, but in his home Congressional District, in his home county of Hamilton, in his home city of Chattanooga, in his own voting precinct at Lookout Mountain &nd in the two voting precincts of Madisonville where he was born and grew up. There has perhaps never been any candidate for high office in history who has been so thoroughly discred­ited by the folks back home as this bold and bumbling bidder for notor­iety whose objective, as the Nashville Banner expressed it, was the "grati­fication of a perennial itch to walk beyond his depth in 'lory." It cannot be said that Kefauver sacrificed any principles w h en he turned his back on his home State, on the South and on human dignity and elected to go all-out for the Moscow dictum for integrated schools in Dixie, for one cannot sacrifice that which one docs not possess. But when he appraised the situation and decided that the most votes were to be gar­nered from the far lelt, he was joined by Tennessee's other Senatorial weak­ling, Albert Gore, Governor Frank G. Clement and other political oppor­tunists who crawled in bed with him only - again quoting the Nashville Banner - to have the slats yanked out and used 1:or a king-sized spank­ing to the whole lot. Said the Banner: "They went down with Estes. All the way. They went down with him, along with Reuther, Mrs. Roosevelt, the ADA and the NAACP that were backing that .side." But even though Tennessee, like Texas and some other States, has little representation in Washington outside of a few staunch Americans in the Lower House of Congress, the majority of the citizens of that State are loyal and sound-thinking Ameri­cans who know how to throw off the tyrannical yoke of Pygmy leadership when the galling becomes unbearable. The Tennessee Legislature will con­vene in January and if its members have learned at long last that the authority of a Sovereign State of the American Union supersedes that of the Federal Government which the States created and endowed with limited authority, then "government by bayonet" will be replaced by gov­ernment by the Constitution and the law. We aTe deeply appreciative of a letter from a friend in the House of Commons at Ottawa, Canada, complimenting the December edi­tion of the Southern Conservative. Texas to Lose Two of Its Greatest Public Servants At a time when they can ill be spared, two of the public officials who have rendered the most val­uable service to the Lone Star State in recent years are retiring from office. The Honorable William H. At­well of Dallas is one of the few Federal Judges left in the country who is a Federal Judge and not a social reformer, a political psychol­ogist or a cowering stooge of the Supreme Court. His rulings in segregation mat­ters engendered temporary respect for the judiciary which has be­come almost non-existent. Because of age, Judge Atwell is, unfortunately, retiring. The Honorble John Ben Shep­perd, a young man, proved to be one of the most capable and fear­less officials ever to serve the State during his two terms as Attorney General. He did not offer for re­election although it is believed that he could have had the office again without a campaign if he had agreed to run. His courage in handling the seg­regation issue, his painstaking preparation of the successful suit which resulted in a temporary re­straining order against the Nation­al Association for the Advance­ment of Colored People which is expected to be made permanent, and his general conduct of the of­fice has won for him the high esteem and good will of the r ight­thinking people of Texas. Judge Atwell, of course, cannot be expected to again hold public office because of his age but we hope that Mr. Shepperd is not permanently out of the picture even though his desire to look after his personal interest is natural and understandable. Our heartfelt thanks and grati­tude is extended both Judge At­well and Mr. Shepperd. "Newsweek, December 3, ,·e­ports that the United States Sen­ate Internal Security Committee is sitting on the hottest case of Red infiltration of gove1·nment since the Hiss case but that t he senators are 'undecided whether to b1·eak open the case because of the big names involved'. In other words, intental security only requires that the small-fry Reds be exposed and prosecuted!!" - Canadian Intelligence Service, Flesherton, Ontario. Thinking American Asks Pertinent Questions "Why so much activity about the Hungarians, who are voluntari­ly leaving their country - and so little in behalf of the Arabs who were so brutally driven from theirs?" asks that staunch Ameri­can E. M. Biggers of Houston, who has a knack of getting right down to the core of things. "We are spending millions of dollars flying the Hungarians to new lands of greater opportunity, while denying the same privileges to the Arabs," Mr. Biggers con­tinued. "The Arabs ask only to be al­lowed to return to their own homes that were seized. • "The Golden Rule, now so bad­ly needed all over the world, seems to have been turned into a one-way street in these troublesome times. "Why do the American people refuse to think? Why sympathy for one and cruelty for the other?" Canadians Say Communism Using Churches and Churchmen of West (Canadian Intelligence Service, December, 1956) Informed students of world revolu­tion are aware of the fa ct that Com­munigm is using puppet 'churches' and 'churchmen' in her great ideolog­ical war to deceive the world. The leaders of the major Protestant de­nominations in the West have been co-operatillg with and honouring these Red 'clergymen' by way of common worship in the World Council of Churches. We have repeatedly exposed this policy as one which insults Christ and betrays His followers behind the cur­tain. Recent" event9 in Hungary con­firmed the soundness of our stand, as during the few hours that the Hun­garian people enjoyed a measure ol freedom, the Red 'clergy' found it necessary to flee for their lives­including the Red 'bishops', Lajos Veto and Laszlo Dezsery, who sit be­side our church leaders in the World Council. Even if our own Oxnams, Red Deans and Doreys haven't enough sense to know that the Red 'clergy' do not speak for the captive peoples, the Hungarian people have risen up and, in a matter of hours, hurled this truth in our face. Surely we cannot be so dense as to miss it. We Cut Back Our Own Defense While Building Up That of Foreign Nations A powerful civilian group, the Air Force Association, charged in Wash­ington that the American Air Force is being denuded by economy-minded Pentagon officials and that the 137- wing program hoped for as a matter of security is now a "dead duck." The 137-wing program was to have been completed by July 1, 1957 but it is nO\'/ announced that these sched­ules will not be met. Following this wave of "economy" in the Pentagon relating to our own ::~~n~inits~~n k~;;''~:~~l;:e!:efo~r~~~~ lions to bolster the defense of Eng­land, the Middle East and practically any other foreign country who comes begging alms of the American tax­payers. There has been no precedent in civilization for such procedure and never in history has any State re­duced its own defense measures while, at the same time, building up those of potential enemy nations Meantime the American people are expected to accept such indefensible performances as normal, logical pro­cedure and they probably will. Perhaps many others observed as we did how many times during the Christmas holidays the song "Deck the Halls with Holly" was sung over the radio, television and in connec­tion with church programs and other festivities having to do with the cele­bration of the Birth of Christ. There is nothing at aJJ wrong with the song so far as we know. It is merely an American folk song and there is nothing objectionable in its selection for ordinary occasions. But the song has become suspect for a rPason having to do with the anti-Cht istian element which is de­manding that all re1igious songs be eliminated from American school pro­grams at Christmas and that the re­ligious aspects of the occasion be de"' emphasized. On December 6th, 195~ , this po1icy was publicly proclaimed in Sayre4 ville, New Jersey, when Richard S. Pollack, Superintendent of the Pub­lic Schools there, and n member ot American Association of School Ad­ministrators, warned teachers under his supervision to begin to eliminate the religious aspects of Christmas pro­grams in th~ir class rooms. Super­intendent Pollack wrote in part to the local teachers: "At this time, no specific action Is indicated but it may be wise to consider, beginning at once, how the Christmas program to be of­fered in your school could be re­planned so as to deemphasize the sectarian religious aspect thereof and to emphasize instead the folk lore value. As an illustration, It may be possible to substitute such folk songs as "Deck the Halls with Holly" for one of the more religi­ous type songs which are gener ally used. It is the opinion of your Su­perintendent that within the fore­seeable future, say the next 3 to 10 years, it will be required by the courts that the specifically religi­ous aspect of the celebration be de­leted from public school program.s and that it will become illegal to use some of the hymns and an­thems that are now quite com­mon and that it will be necessary to avoid pageants involving the na­tivity, angels and similar props. It is suggested that it might be well to begin to re-plan this program in this direction so that the change­over is so gradual as to be un­noticeable lo the general public over a period o( years. Signed R. S. Pollack." Following Pollack's suggcstion.s, and with the thoroughness and attention to detail which distinguishe• all anti-American and anti-Christian propaganda, a movement was started a.t once to make "Deck the Halls With Holly" popular throughout the coun4 try. And so the little yes-boys of radio, television, the National Coun­cil of Churches and other dissemina­tors of a certain type ol propaganda got busy. We may expect to hear more and more of this particular song in the years to come as it gradually replaces those age-old anthems which civilized .... Christian Americans have always as­sociated with the observance of the Birth of Christ. At his first press interview in many weeks, Secretary of State Dulles said that even though our militm·y strength might be cut at 1wme, there was no plan to reduce our forces in Europe. By all means let us protect Europe regardless of what happens to this country! Page 8 Besides, Who'd Furnish the Liquor and Sizzling Steaks? According to the press, mem­bers of the Texas Legislature at its current session are determined to pass a lobbying bill which will make it tough on lobbyists and ~~:~.tically force them out of busi- The first time we heard this threat, we were so surprised that we almost kicked the slats out of our cradle. In the intervening years we have known lots of Aus­tin lobbyists and they all seemed pretty decent citizens to us. We never ~new of any case where they "contaminated" a lawmaker who wasn't ready and willing. In any transaction involving fin­ancial considerations, there must always be not only a signature, but an endorsement, on a check and if, as in the case of the sharp­er ones, it is a cash deal eager hands must reach out not only to give but to accept. After all, lobbying is merely one angle of the Constitutional right of petition for the redress of wrongs and, too, there is always the danger that when members of the Third House are driven out of a State Capital, an appreciable per­centage of the brains, ability and legislative know-how is eliminated along with them. Most of them were former lawmakers them .. selves and it was usually their creditable performance on the floor of the Senate or House, or both, which got them their lobby­ing jobs. Almost anybody can be elected to a legislature but it takes gray matter to be a lobbyist and ably represent the interests of Ameri­can free enterprise. And does anybody want to bet us that highly organized and active school and church lobbies won't be exempted from the provisions of the proposed bill? Before calling the bet, it should be remembered that these two groups influence a powerful passel of votes. Do you feel yourself slipping? Is your libido sagging, your ego shrinking end your rhythm all out of kelter? If so, Dr. Florence Chambers, mental health expert, has good news for you. At a aMen­tal Health Institute" in Daven­port, Iowa, recently, she an­nounced that the Rock 'N' Roll music of Elvis Presley is excel­lent therapy for mental patients. Any one who is mentally ill, says this lady who does repair work on worn-out human mental ma­chinery, or who has lost his rhythm need not despair. Just turn on the radio or television and listen to Elvis Presley in his classic rendition of that immortal number 'Hound Dog" and your mind will begin hitting on all cylinders in no time at all. Maybe so, but we'd rather let our rhythm go hang, our libido sag and our ego drag in the dust than to take the medicine recommended by this lady psychiatrist. Incidentally, she added that church hymns are bad business in the rehabilitation of the mentally ill, w hi c h has a strangely familiar ring. · Church music is associated with Christian­ity and Christianity is the bunk according to opinion in the best egghead circles. The Ford Fund for the Republic has granted $50,000 to the NAACP to help carry on its hate-stirring racial propaganda in accordance with policies originally laid down in Moscow and later adopted in the United States. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE We Love Jokes but This Time the Joke Is on Us Nobody loves a good joke more than we, even when it's on us as it certainly is in this case. We learn that recently some of our nice, well-meaning readers right in our own home town put their heads together and decided that there was definitely something wrong with the picture in our case. It was reasoned, first. that no woman could possibly know as much about politics and politicians as our publication indicates that we know; second, that since we are personally somewhat timid and reserved in manner and tota1ly unable to speak in public, we could not, under any circumstances, write the aggressive and fearless editorials which appear in our columns and, third, Ergo! There must be a male ughost-writer" who does it all for us. Period! Some of them even seriously made inquiry about it of persons who have known us intimately throughout the years, who have worked with us in various activities of the past - and who, incidentally, kidded the life out of us when they told us about it later. Possessing only one poor talent which permits us to put words together more -or less effectively, we should be deni4!ii that sole ac­complishment, yet!!! Any way, turn about is fair play and Heaven knows we have often enough been accused of writing material which others have used as their own, so perhaps we shouldn't object when the charges are reversed, no matter how ridiculous such charges may be. In some cases when we have been charged with writing material for others, the ac­cusation was false. In some cases, it was true. But in any event, it is a new and novel experience for _,.the suggestion to be made that maybe somebody writes our stuff. Off-hand, we can think of many persons, here and there, who are going to regard the incident as price­less and who will never let up ribbing us. Frankly, we feel that if these good people had stretched their imagination only a fraction, they would have found it impossible to conceive of any other dim-wit, aside from us, who would be willing to wrestle with records, dig into dull reports and struggle with of­ficial double-talk in order to compose a half-way sensible and literate picture of what is going on: one who would pound a typewriter six and a half days a week, without salary, with little thanks or apprecia­tion and who would eternally wrack his brai.n for attention-attracting ideas and arresting headlines in the hope of awakening lazy, small­minded and stupid citizens from their torpid stale and forcing them to face up to what is happening to them and to those who will come after them. In all seriousness, we realize, of course, that those who know us and whose opinion we value, will laugh right along with us over the incident. But to those throughout the nation who subscribe to the paper and who might get a similar impression, we give them our as­surance that we do write everything that appears in the Southern Conservative. Not a line has appeared in it since the first edition which was written, or even read, by any one else, until after it appeared in print with the exception of cases where full credit was given those from whom we quoted or whose articles we reproduced. That the material in the Southern Conservative should be re­garded as of such quality and forcefulness that some male "ghost­writer" would be credited with writing it is, after all, the greatest compliment which has been paid us to date and we shall try to remember only that and forget the pettiness behind the incident as all of us are guilty of adolescent or senile thinking at times. We admit that there is perhaps a vivid contrast between our reserve in public and our daring style of writing but we positively refuse to apologize for any quality of femininity we happen to possess! One of our most pleasant memories is of what we considered a fine tribute once paid us by the late Charlie Benson, editorial writer of the great Fort Worth Star-Telegram who referred to us in his column as 11a very feminine interloper in a very masculine Iield." We loved that designation of our status. We have never disputed the superiority of the masculine mind. All we claim is that we have so closely observed those superior masculine minds in operation for so long - and espe­cially in the field of politics - that we ca"l nearly always call the shot when one of them sticks his neck out. We make no pretense of being smart - we just report what the smart guys do. In a word, we merely attempt to quote the record of the superior masculine minds who have put this country where it is today; that's all. Meantime, we shall try to allow this latest implied compliment to compensate us for the support which we need and long for, but do not always get, from those who, we are sure, are as deeply concerned in patriotic efforts as we are, and whose objectives are identical with ours but who sometimes employ odd methods to express their concern. Incidentally, and curiously, it is only patriots who stop to throw a rock at another patriot. The Reds don't operate that way. They stick together like fieas on a mangy dog. Perhaps that's the reason they have so far outstripped us and out-smarted us on every front. January, 1957 Minnesota's A Beautiful State but We Don't "(iopher" Humphrey Hubert H. Humphrey, member ol the United States Senate from Min­nesota and one ol the loudest, most offensive and irrepressible wind·bags ever to hold forth In a public forum, is out to dislodge Senator James 0. East1and of Mississippi from the chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee because of the latter's firm and unyielding position on so­called Civil Rights. The fact that Senator Eastland oc­cupies that post through the long­established and time-honored rule of seniority means nothing to this selC­appointed evangel of Mongrelizatlon who is convinced that he, himselt, i.s far more capable of settling the issue than those who know something about the subject. Senator Eastland was born In Mis­sissippi and haSlived there all his life and knows, from first - hand knowledge, that there was no Negro or Civil Rights problem in the South until it was germinated in Moscow as an instrwnent for advancing the Party's interest in the United States. It wa& immediately seized on by cheap­skate and morally impoverished poli­ticians here whose concern in the matter begins and ends with the vote­getting potentials of the issue as it af­fects the Democrat and Repub1ican Parties. Just how little Humphrey and his ilk know about the matter and how limited is their practical experience with the situation is revealed in cold, stark figures of the Federal govern­ment: In 1950 when the last Federal cen­sus was taken, there were 2,178,914 people in the State of Mississippi of which 986,494 were Negroes. Thus the Negro population ot that State is more than 45%, or approximately one-half of a Negro to each White person. In Minnesota where Humphrey lives, on the other hand, the 1950 census shows that there were 2,982,- 483 people at that time, 14,022 of whom were Negroes. Thus Minnesota has a Negro population of less than one·hall of one per cent or about one Negro to a little more than each two hundred White persons. Instead of confessing ignorance and stepping aside, however, Humphrey never misses an opportunity to barge to the front and crash into the discus. sian concerning a matter about which he is about as much qualified to speak as arc the little burrowing, rat.Jike animals darting about on the Western prairies which have given Minnesota the nickname of the Gopher State. Mao T se· Tung Is not (ioing to Like This In December India's Nehru was royally entertained at the White House and was extended the same courtesies that are accorded re· spectable leaders of foreign coun­tries. According to a Washington dis­patch Tito is the next foreign "ce· lebrity" who will participate in hospitality dispensed at the White House. An invitation was to be extended him to visit here, the news release said. There is another old cut-throat over in China named Mao Tse­Tung who has not been invited and we know of no plans to have him come visit us. However, since Nehru, Tito and Mao are of a simi· lar ideological stripe, Mao is prob­ably going to wonder why he was snubbed.
