Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. b FORT WORTH. TEXAS, SEPTEMBER, 1955 No.9 Unless Errant Ministers Are Re-Converted To Christianity Republic May Not Survive (iaw Is Only A Symbol For Looks Like Paris Hot Spots Cowardice And Dishonesty May Suffer Loss In Revenue The heads of industry who meekly knuckled under to the CIO demand for more pay for less work are as guilty of racketeering as Walter Reuther. In following the line of least resistance and granting the Guar­anteed Annual Wage, they showed neither courage, honesty nor con­cern for the preservation of the national economy. They took the easiest way out, figuring thereby to avoid a show­down with Union bosses and, at the same time, to get their money back by passing the additional cost on to the taxpayers through in­creased prices of their product. Their miserable behavior is in sad contrast to the performance of that staunch American industrial­ist, Herbert V. Kohler of Wiscon­sin, who refused to give an inch toward unreasonable demands, stood his ground for more than a year against threats, intimidation and acts of vandalism on the par~ of CIO union members and who never gave up until he had whip­ped them down to their knees. It is such courage, back-bone and stamina as this which is going to have to be summoned forth from somewhere if the blackmail­ing of American business by labor union bosses is to be halted. There is a reliable, but uncon­firmed, report that some members of Congress did not go to Europe this summer to "Investigate" the situation over there. The report of this phenomenal behavior probably stemmed from the fact that only a little more than a million dollars has been drawn from the Federal treasury so far to pay the traveling ex~ penses of vacationing lawmakers. This would seem to indicate that, instead of going to Europe, some of them have decided to go home and investigate the situation in their own district- an a r e a with which they are far less fa­miliar. The Right To Loaf New Union Request Some Union leaders are said to be readying a demand for a thirty­five- hour work week and with the fast dwindling courage of those in position to refuse such prepos­terous proposals, they may get just that. Although we pray that it may never come, what such persons de­serve is a good full-blown De­pression to help restore their sense of values. Fund For The Republic Blasphemes Good Name Of Original Henry Ford Thoughtful Ameticans must be greatly troubled over the actiOn of the Ford family in endowing the Fund for the Republic with fifteen million dollars and turning it over to a man like Robert M. Hutchins to be spent as he may direct. Dr. Hutchins' record of defending Communists and their right to teach in American institutions of learning is open to all who care to examine it and there is not the slightest doubt in any informed per­son's mind that every project sponsored by this man will be dedicated to the glorification of those who earnestly advocate the overthrow of our existing economy and its replacement by a Socialist State. The Fords owe everything they own to the system of government which early American patriots set up and which has made this the strongest and most powerful and respected nation on earth and 011e which has provided the financial assistance to maintain the Socialist countries to which Hutchins pays such rapturous tribute. It is the most arrant display of ingratitude, if not disloyalty, that this generation has witnessed and provides irrefutable proof that the integrity, faith and Americanism of the original Henry Ford was not projected beyond his grave. And the bitter pill that patriotic Americans must swallow is the undeniable fact that no man in like financial bracket will match this fifteen million dollar fund and endow a movement to preserve the precious heritage which the Fund for the Republic would destroy. The frightening swing of organized Protestant Churches away from basic American concepts and their alignment with international anti-Christian elements openly hostile to the United States, can no longer be brushed off as a fanciful Illusion born of alarmists' fears. The time has come when it must be faced as a terrifying reality fully documented by their own official pronouncements as they become increas· ingly bolder in their support of totalitarian and atheistic proposals. If, as they claim, their existing clerical monopoly represents 35,000,000 American Protestant church members, it constitutes a powerful and lethal weapon which could not only spell the end of the Christian religion in the United States but could sweep Christian civilization from the face of the earth. Since the beginning o{ the Republic, the United States has been recognized throughout he world as a lu:istian Nation backed by a basic belief in a Divilte Creator and a land where Christian principles of government are given expression in the re~ogn.ition of the dignity ~f the individual and man's God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Throughout almost two hundred years of the nation's history, its moral and spiritual stature has been developed and broadened through the gentle ministrations and dedicated service of devout Men of the Cloth even as great and good men in government have sought to pre4 serve and protect its system of sound economy. Sincere ministers of the Gospel whose sacred mission on earth is to reclaim weak and wicked humanity from the error of its ways, need no defense by us or acclaim from any other human source. Their consecrated calling places them beyond the reach of human censure and lifts them above the need of human praise. Without the stabilizing influence of the churches and the ministers who remain in their pulpits and expound the godly principles for which the Christian religion stands, this nation could not long survive, and would revert to disordered anarchy. Religion is the tie which links man with infinity, inspires belief in immortality of the soul and sustains faith in an eternal life in the Great Beyond, without which we would sink to the level of the beast in the jungle. It is because the church and the clergy dwell in that lofty and ex­alted realm of dedicated spiritual service to which civilization assigned them to provide a beacon light to faltering humanity, that the defection of even one member of that holy profession, and the resultant demoral­ization of his congregation, resounds with a crash that shakes the foun­dation of organized human society. When great numbers default their sacred obligations, the damaga to moral and Christian ethics is beyond repair. The National Council of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A., as at­tested by their own published documents, has largely abandoned the Christian ideal of a Kingdom in Heaven in favor of a Utopia on earth. Its labors in the field of spiritual service have been laid aside in the interest of its operations in the sphere of government, economics and world politics. In bulletins issued from the Council's headquarters in New York, it endorses the proposal advanced by Red Sympathizers that the Chinese Communists be admitted to the United Nations; the mutila­tion of the McCarran-Walter Immigration Law passed by the Congress to protect our national security; the integration of the black and white races, not for the economic advancement of Negroes but for their social acceptance at all levels including intermarriage; the setting up of a World Government by the United Nations; a "Christian approach to Communism" by the people of the United States; co-existence with Russia and all the other proposals of international propagandists in be- {Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It Page2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1955 Again Proved That In Politics You Just Can't Beat The Irish "Propper·Uppers" Get Gypped Out Of More Than A Billion Dollars When the Governor'S Confer­ence met at Chicago last month there were press photographs and interviews to prove that AveriU was still for Adlai and that every­thing was lovey dovey between them. Some one should tell the trust­ing ex-governor of Illinois and ex­candidate for president, that Av­erill wasn't totin' fair with him and that the New Yorker's cam­paign for the Fair Deal nomina­tion was already well under way even as Averill planted a Judas kiss on Adlai's rosy cheek. It's an involved. story but as we have been able to piece it to­gether, here it is: The Catholic War Veterans of the U.S.A. was organized twenty years ago with but one objective and that was to fight Communism which, as its leaders were able to discern even at that early date, \Vas to be the No. 1 menace in this country. Composed exclusive­ly of young Catholic GI's, this great organization didn't include a word in its declaration of pur­poses suggesting that it might lat­er be diverted away from its or­iginal aims and used as a nucleus !or launching an ambitious candi­date's campaign for the presiden­cy. Carmine De Sapia, Tammany Hall boss, recently named Secre­tary of State of New York by Av­er11l Harriman, is a good Catholic but a better politician. So, when it was decided last May that the annual convention of the Catholic War Veterans would be held in New York Aug­ust 17-20, the resourceful Tam­many chieftain went into action and proved that although his name is De Sapia, he's no sap. He had some special letterheads. of the Catholic War Veterans struck off which were obviously for exclusive use in New York and not out in the hinterlands where the CWV is still composed of Catholics and who still think tha~ their only objective is to fight Communism and subversion. Among the names which thtt adroit Mr. De Sapia had sprinkled profusely among those of the reg­ular veterans who rightfully be­longed on CWV stationery under the heading of 11Convention com­mittee", were such good 11lrish Catholics" as Herbert Lehman, Jacob K. Javits, Harry Hershfield, Bernard P. Gimbel,' Nathaniel L. Goldstein, Emanuel Celler, Robert Moses, Harold R. Moskivit and twelve other loyal Sons of Erin. By a strange coincidence, it turned out that all these worthy representatives of the Emerald Isle were tacitly committed to tho nomination of iheir fellow towns~ man for president at Chicago in August, 1956, and the poor little Illinois farm boy didn't have a single friend at court. This is tough for poor Adlai for if a gathering of fighting Irish politicians from strategic popula­tion centers of the country, coupl~ ed with a liberal sprinkling of members of a more financially· powerful-race, is not the ideal set­ting for the successful launching of a presidential campaign, it will do until a better one is invented. In the August 25th edition of Jet, a Negro magazine appears this quotation from a retired Negro 1tett•spaper publisher in Ok1ahmna, Roscoe Dunjee: uMy honest judg­ment is that if1stead of the white race absorbing the Negro mce, the Negro race will absorb the white race/ ' Combined Dulles Strength Pries General Out of Job According to "Mr. John O'Donnell the ever-reliable Washington corres· pondent o£ the New York News, H~ll· zapoppin in the Pentagon, or is g~mg to when Congress comes back mto session.

According to Mr. O'Donnell th is In 1933 when Roosevelt took over -------­the reins of government, part of his Socialistic program was to guarantee prices to farmers for their products, in return for votes, Since that time, American taxpay­ers have had to cough up one billion, two hundred million dollars to the Department of Agriculture for "price supporting" the dairy industry alone. The Department bought up milk, butter and cheese from the dairymen at a high price and then sold or gave away these products at a billion, two hundred million dollar loss, The government's fourth or fifth attempt to deport the Australian Communist, Harry Bridges, has failed and he is now free to cany on subversive activities without fear of deportation.

During and after March of 1954, the Department of Agriculture, acting under the authority of the price support law bought 80 mil­lion pounds of cheese from several companies, including Kraft, Bor­den, H. J. Heinz, A&P Stores and several other financially under­privileged concerns. The purpose of the purchase Was to keep the price up and prevent these poor little infant industries from having to face competition in the open market, a possibility which is abhorrent in the view of our best economic experts. The Department bought the cheese at 37 cents per pound but later found they didn't need it, didn't want it and couldn't use it. Besides, they didn't have any place to put it. It was at this point that the latent talent of the experts in the Agricultural Department for conducting profitable financial transactions was brought into play. Following some quick thinking, the experts called up these same concerns and sold the cheese back to them at a price which ranged all the way from 341h to 35~~ cents per pound. The neat trick about the whole thing was that there were no transportation charges involved since the cheese hadn't yet been delivered and was still in the same place it had been from the start. Only two million dollars were lost in the deal which is way be­low par for the course and tax­payers should be grateful that these alert and wide-awake public servants are on the job looking out for their intere_sts_. ---- Stop Thief! We Want To Frisk Your Wallet Any poor sap who has the bright idea that he can escape the clutches of Washington tax-grab­bers by moving to another country is in for a shock. The Bureau of Internal Revenue has announced that it is setting up an "international division" and that they are going to chase flee­ing Americans across the ocean and shake them down no matter where they have taken up their residence. The reason the poor boobs left here was probably to get away from the "revenoors" but now they are finding out that the American tax law imposes a life sentence and demands payment no matter where they go. Its strong arm squad will hound them to the ends of the earth and the only way to escape is to dump all earthly possessions in the ocean - and jump in after them. The Federal government needs the money and needs it bad. We've got about forty other nations to support and we can't let 'em down even if we have to bleed our own citizens white. Not that the Bureau has asked us for advice, but we respectfully suggest that there is an easier way to get money and that is to make the tax-dodgers in the Ford, Rock­efeller and Carnegie Foundations We, The People To Speak At Chicago Under the title of We, The People, a group of Americans from many states concerned in the threat to Constitutional govern­ment posed by the far-to-the-left leadership in both major parties, will meet in Chicago September 17-18 at the CQJlrad Hilton Hotel for what is predicted by the spon­sors as a session of "two-action­packed days." Preliminary preparationS for the meeting include a tentative outline of the proposed subjects to be discussed which includes the limitation of the powers of gov­ernment as provided in the Consti­tution; the division of power as between the three separate branch­es of government; encroachment of the Federal government on the Rights of the States; limitation of the taxing power of Congress; treaty-making powers of Congress and the Executive and many other subjects, all of which are of vital interest to Americans who desire to perpetuate existing Constitu­tional government and oppose the strong efforts currently being made to switch to a total Socialist (A long-time subscriber in New Orleans writes us: "In one or your earliest editions, you had an editorial about 'The Solid South' which I think would be especially appropriate now if you would reproduce it." T.hc editorial referred to appeared in the January 1950, edition and follows - Editot) Above and beyond political considerations which no longer exist, there's a reason for calling it the "Solid South." Together the people of Dixie have undergone many vicissitudes and humiliations both at the hand of nature and of man. Southerners Jived, somehow, through the horrors of Civil \Var and the tragedy of carpet baggers, degrading poverty and Reconstruc­tion Days. They have suffered and survived attacks of various plagues. pests and persons including yellow fever, drought, grassboppers, the boll weevil and Eleanor Roosevelt. Millions of us have been disinherited by the p~rty of our fathers and have been compelled, like lost souls, to wander in the political wil­derness without an altar on which to lay our faith or an anchor for our allegiance. Other millions of us have strayed of( after strange political gods and have worshipped at alien shrines in a peculiar gesture of loyalty to an empty label and to the ghost or a party which lives only in name. But when a common enemy attacks and threatens to shatter the dignity of our daily pattern of life, we usually drift back together again and present a united front. Perhaps this is because of some faint lingering trace of the old Rebel spirit which refused to completely surrender when the bayonets were stacked at Appomattox and the Confederate Flag dipped its colors in a last salute. Any way, that's how it is down in Dixie and when the Civil Rights menace rears its ugly head in Congress again, all good South­erners will fall in line, shoulder the old musket.and come out "a shoot­in'." That's why they call it the "Solid South".

They not only should be forced to pay taxes like everybody else but should be enjoined from sub­sidizing any more subversive movements or individuals. The figures given in the Post were from official health agencies which had' made a survey and were limited to children below seven­teen years of age and showed that in the City of Washington there were 532 cases of gonorrhea among juveniles and that of this number 523 were Negro children and 9 white children. The survey took into ac­count only the reported cases for the first six months of 1954 and did not of course include cases not reported to medical authorities. Following the release of these figures, .. the exodus of white fam­ilies out of the Capital into adjoining States where segregation still pre­vails in the schools, was even greater than in previous months when they moved out in droves to avoid complying with the ruling Mr. Warren is generally believed to have engineered as payment for his appointment to a soft lifetime job. The Post figures were picked up by the American States Rights Association and by "Alabama" the "News Magazine of the Deep South" for circulation throughout Dixie which is the heaviest poten­tial victim of the Supreme Court's ill-considered decision. Sanitation and hygiene are practically unknown among large segments of Negroes in the South and gonorrhea is largely regarded by them as little more serious than a bad cold. While Southerners are deeply sympathetic of colored children who contract this repulsive dis­ease from the carelessness of their elders, they don't want this unspeak­able malady spread among their own little boys and girls. And they are going to fight to the last ditch to prevent it and especially in Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama and other States of the Deep South where thest! horrifying conditions prevail to an even greater extent than in Texas. ...

In Government There Is More Than One Kind Of Corruption Corruption in government does not consist solely in the defection of a few minor officials and lower­bracket hirelings in a Federal agency who are bribed with mon­ey, mink coats, deep freezes and free board in luxury hotels nor is the good faith of an administra­tion proved when it heaves such small-time chiselers out of their job. Stealing the rights of the States and of the sovereign people is a far greater crime than pilfering a few dollars from the public till. Money can be replaced but lost liberty is seldom restored except at the point of a sword The worst form of corruption which can be visited upon a gov­ernment of the people is for its leaders to repudiate fundamental principles of the Republic, barteY. away its national sovereignty and surrender the rights of the States and of the citizens on demand of the nation's betrayers.

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1955 What Price Cilory Or Who Dropped No Authority On Children So Wise As ThoseWhoHaveNone The Frog In The Tomato Aspic? There is a striking difference in the performance of good Amer­icans and the behavior of domestic Reds as members of the respective organizations to which they each belong and it is this difference which is responsible for the advantage which the subversives hold in their efforts to advance the Soviet cause in this country. ''Divide and Conquer" is the old reliable, time-tested slogan em­ployed by shrewd left-wingers in outsmarting American patriots who undertake to combat them and it offers a sure-fire formula for out­witting the enemy, a fact that some members of patriotic organizations ~~~~~n~eem to grasp and especially those composed exclusively of For instance, an active, intelligent and energetic group of well­intentioned women, seriously concerned over vanishing Americanism will form an organization with a comprehensive and well-planned pro­gram designed to inform other women and enlist them in an effort to alert the citizens of the Republic to this danger. By and large these women are informed, conscientious and well­balanced and are motivated only by a common desire to render a useful, selfless and patriotic service in behalf of sound principles of govern­ment. But, unfortunately, human nature is so constituted that it is practically impossible to assemble a large and unwieldly number of women into one single unit without including a few specimens of the fair and gentle sex who are born with an inner compulsion to throw an egg in the electric fan or drop a frog in the tomato aspic. To such women, it is a form of human torture to witness a smooth­running apparatus in operation and in their particular design for living only those have scaled the .heights of glory who are able to throw the switch and wreck the freight from cowcatcher to caboose. An organization may be functioning with the speed and precision of a diesel engine ke'eping to its course and headed straight for the goal ahead. Then suddenly, through mysterious and secret channels available only to her, Mary Smith learns that Maggie Jones' step-father once bolted the regular party ticket and voted for the Mugwump candidate for president, causing serious doubt in Mary's mind about Maggie's fitness to remain a member of the organization. Meantime Maggie has been informed by equally reliable sources that long ago, before marrying John Smith, Mary was the wife of a man who worshipped with the cult of the Jumping Jehoshaphats which definitely convinces Maggie that Mary should resign from the organ­ization at once. At home, telephones begin to jingle and tongues to wag and before long all those of the group who go in for such divisive methods and are easily side-tracked from the main line choose up, take sides and decide to fight it out If these disruptive tactics become public information, it can re­flect on the good name of the organization and completely cancel out its capacity for service in the cause to which it is dedicated, unless clear-headed leaders decide to accept a few resignations, cut away the dead timber and get on with the job. There is no class or group of citizenship in the United States which is rendering more valuable service in the current fight for the restora­tion of Constitutional government than the clear-thinking afld intelli­gent women who have banded themselves into organizations com­mitted to this objective and there are none who can louse up the works quic~er and more effectively than their opposite numbers who are dis­qualified b!' nature from participating in any form of organized activity. The Pmk Ladies in subversive organizations may hate each other too and sometimes want to scratch and claw like Kilkenny cats but they stifle the impulse, stick together and fight their way toward their mutual goal. :rhe tragic sta~e of the union today and the inroads which Com­mums. m has made mto American institutions is a tribute to their judg­ment tf not to their patriotism or loyalty to country.

''The South's Segregation prob­lem could be solved if we could segregate the children from adults a few years." This startling proposal was not made by the NAACP nor even the Daily Worker, but by Miss Wau­rine Walker, president until re­cently of the National Education Association, as quoted by the San Diego Union September 21, 1954 when Miss Walker spoke in that city. Tearing a child away from its parents and home influence as a means of indoctrinating its mind with alien propaganda would seem to be a rather ghastly and cruel proceeding and one which could not be suggested by any American except those fully steeped in UNESCO and NEA doctrine. Or one who like Miss Walker is a spinster With no hope of chil~ dren of her own and who, there4 fore, is totally unable to under­stand the universal impulse of re­sponsible parents to keep their family together against all odds, even in the face of disapproval by NEA. Miss Walker, and others like her, direct the Texas Board of Educa­tion which accredits Texas public schools and otherwise wields in­fluence over the minds and think­ing of school children of the state. The Only Way He Can Help The Cause Is To Get Lost Up in Mackinac Island, Michi­gan, recently the little man from Independence, Missouri, ranted and raved to a gathering of Fair Dealers against the present admin­istration for favoring rich men by reducing their taxes. This will no doubt be a pleasant surprise to "rich men" who didn't know they had been the recipients of this boon. Of course his listeners were ex­pected to, and probablY did, forget ~ that the little pinhead himself is a rich man-not through his own ability but by grace of Boss Pen­dergast's corrupt political machine which boosted him into the big money after he had failed ignomi­niously in private business. If left to his own resources, he would probably have ended up in Skid Row instead of the Senate a11d the White House. It is rumored that even the most dedicated liberals in his own party tremble every time he opens his mouth and are fervently praying for him io come down with an acute case of lockjaw until after the 1956 election is over. We admit that we are out of line with the thinking of politic­ians cun-ently in power and that our philosophy is as out-moded as mustache cups, buqgy whips and bustles but, somehow. we just can't keep fron~ liking while peo­ple too and feeling that t.hey are entitled to some ·few of the "rights'' now bei~g so generously parcelled out. We've known just lots of them and they are nice people, really. If our leaders in Washington would just cultivate a few of them, we believe they would be convinced that this m-i­nority group is worthy of some little measure of consideration, and that further discrimination against them will result in giving them an inferiority complex, a sense of frustration and a reali:a­t~ o?t that they are second-clas!

We have been greatly .honored by the confidence reposed in us by representatives of ~ certain group of business execuhves, pro­fessional men and civic leaders whose standing in their respective communities is beyond question who have allowed us to review their tentative plans and person­nel in a proposed movement which cannot fail to command re­spect from our national leaders. Smalle;r groups are constantly being organized in various sec­tions of the country and while the methods of each may differ, all are entitled to consideration be­cause of the worthy objective which they seek. While we never join personally with any group, organization or movement, we are heartily for each and every one of them and within the limits of our ability and resources, will do anything we can to encourage any body of citi­zens whose overall purpose is the preservation of the American form of government against its enemies who would destroy it. One of the greatest handicaps to such movements is the attitude of those who are in position to sup­port such'" moveme.nts financially even though they may not have the time to personally take part. Too often such persons are willing to help to any extent if Only they can claim tax exemption for their contributions. Well, they can't do it unless such organizatiOn is willing to lim­it its activities to "educational" purposes and that won't get the job done. There has already been too much "education" of the wrong kind by government, edu­cational, religious and assorted propagandists and what the Am­erican people need now is to be "un-educated" and informed of the practical facts of life and what is facing them in the matter of totalitarian government if they don't cleanse their mind of a twenty-years' collection of tripe and start thinking straight and acting sanely. By refusing to cooperate unless given the right to deduct their donation, these big money boys may save a few dollars in tax money but they may also find one day that they were not saving it for themselves, their children or their children's children, but for some totalitarian boss who is not interested in seeing that they get tax exemption or anything else except the axe. The argument mainly used in favor of approval of the raise in the salary of Congnssmen during the last session to $22,500 per year, or 1·ather for six or seven month's work, was that we could expect a higher type man to rep­resent us in Washington for this increased salary. However, we have not heard of any Congress­man now on the job who has an­nounced that he will 1·etire and give the "higher type., man a chance, ------------------------------ It's A Rotten Joke Throw The On his return to Texas from Washington recently, a Texas Congressman with a perverted sense of humor, made a prediction in the press which many who read it pronounced as a very poor spec­imen of a very lousy joke. He insisted that be had infox:ma­tion "from a highly reliable source" that, in the event Mr. Dwight D. Eisenhower does not run for a second term, the Repub­licans have a replacement and will put on .the ticket-of all people­his brother, Milton Eisenhower. It's. always been said, of course, that things have to get worse be­fore they can get better but we don't believe it was ever intended that they get tHat bad. The Congressman's name is the Honorable Walter Rogers of Tam­pa and we hope all his children turn out to be Dewey Republicans. It would serve him right. A Great Milestone In History Is Recorded· There has been widespread dis­satisfaction because of the failure of the Eisenhower administration to live up to its 1952 campaign promise~ but this minor defection. will probably be forgiven when the American people realize the full import of a heretofore un­r eve ale d accomplishment, of world-Shaking proportions, f o r which the administration claims credit. Heart-w a r m i n g information about this notable achievement is contained in a bulletin just re­leased by the Republican National Committee from its headquarters in Washington. The President has so changed the social and cultural pattern in the city of Washington that it fin­ally has the approval of Dr. Ralph Bunche who says that he wouldn't mind living there now, this bulle­tin tells us. In order that the American peo­ple may grasp the full meaning of this complete reversal of at­titude on the part of a world citi­zen, the bulletin adds: "In 1950, during the Truman administra­tion, Dr. Bunche refused to live in Washington because of racial discrimination." We feel sure that the attainment of this exalted goal will out-weigh every other consideration and more than compensate the Amer­ican taxpayers for an un-balanced budget, an increasing national debt, lack of tax reduction, step­ped- up foreign spending and all the other un-fulfilled promises concerning unimportant matters on which some 31,000,000 voters pinned their hopes.

Bum Out One thing that is hard to accept in the brave new world the plan­ners are preparing for us and that is the fact that in many parts of the world, frontiers are inviolable.

Proposal To Abolish Free Speech Seriously Debated A proposal that Federal legisla­tion be enacted which would ~ake it a felony for any private Clbzen to so much as suggest ways to avoid integration in the schools, was under consideration by ~ ~ub­committee of the House Jud1c1ary when Congress adjou1·ned. This information was released by Herman Talmadg~' s Statesm~n, published in Hapeville, Georgw. :~~d~~?Y f~~·w~~a;~r ~~n p~~~r;h ~~~~ very startling news. This proposal was made by Judge Daniel A. Rose, chairman of the National Civil Rights Commit­tee, to Subcommittee No. 2 of House Judiciary Committee. Rose was backed up in this proposal by a Negro called Roy Wilkins. one of the few comparatively colored officials of NAACP. The amazing thing was not the proposal, co m i n g from such sources, but that a Committee of Congress would dignify it by hold­ing long hearings on it which they did. It was furthermore reported by informed sources that it will be taken up in the next Congress where Democrats and Republicans are expected to vie with each oth­er in groveling in the dirt in an effort to corral Negro votes in the North and East. What decent Americans had better do is ride herd on the next Congress to see that the whole Constitution, with its freedom of speech, press and all other rights, is not thrown out the windoW dur­ing this rat race of small men to perpetuate themselves in office by fair means or foul. In Octobe1· the Mutual Broad­casting Company will start carry­ing the "As I See It"' program fea­turing Fmnk Kirkpatrick in a series of political essays on Amer­icanism. These broadcasts will be heard on app1·o:timately 450 sta­tions in a nation-wide hookup and from the reputation of Mr. Kirk­patrick as a loyal American and defender of Constitutionat govern­ment, should prove an effective antidote to the subversive propa­gand. a so frequently flooding the air u.:aves these days. Things happen too fast these days for us to keep pace with events as they unfold on the in­ternational level. We have tried earnestly to ac­cept the attitude of sweetness and light on the part of the Russians toward the U. S. and to under­stand all the billing and cooing that went on in Geneva and the visiting back and forth between American and Muscovite citizens but just as we Were feeling real cozy about it all, we got a terrible shock. An Associated Press release from Washington on August 24th, informed us that plans are being developed in the Capitol for put­t ing the government and the na­t ion's economy on an immediate war footing if the need should arise. It said that the Office oS... Defense Mobilization had these plans worked out and that standby orders had been drafted freezing prices, wages and rents, setting up food rationing and taking control of radio, telegraph and telephones. One minute Washington of!ic• ials lead us to believe that the octension was eased" by the Gen­eva conference and the next they tell us they are preparing to put the nation's economy on a war basis "if necessary.'' Russia is the only one likely to make it "neces­sary" which indicates to us, that we are just where we were before the "summit" talks. It's too bad too, because we were preparing to follow the cur­rent trend of buddying up to the Bolsheviks and were figuring on sending some pressed peonies and candy hearts to Bulganin as a gesture of good will. Another Internationalist Body Looms On The Horizon An Associated Press story from Ceylon, an island in the Indian Ocean, says that President Eisenhower has promised "to support a proposal that the United States convene a World Parliament of Religions." ..... The article quotes G. P. 1\Talala­sckcra of the University of Ceylon as announcing on his recent return from the United States tbalhediscus­sed the proposal with Seerctnry of State John Foster Dulles and that all that is needed now is to work outthcpracticaldelails. 1\!Ialal<."lsckcra . said the Parliament would probably· be "summon('d" to meet at the end of l!l57 and that Dulles had suggested it be held in San Foanciseo. This World Parliament of Religions, of course, will be another spoke in the wheel of internationalism and true religion and Christian principles and morality will be no more a part of its objectives than they are of similar world groups disguised as religious bodies but which are, in reality, subversive political units com­mitted to one-world government Nothing was said about it in the dispatch from Ceylon but it's dolla"" to doughnuts that either the Ford, Rockefeller or Carnegie Foundations will put up the millions to Iin:mce it.

THE SOUTHERN CON S ERVATIVE September, 1955 A Practical Way To Put A Quick "Mental Health" Is Coming To Be End To Subversive Organizations A Phrase Of Fearful Meaning No American of normal mind really feels that the possession ot wealth is the evil and sinister thing current Socialist propaganda in this country pictures it. Any mortal man or woman who prefers poverty to riches is a fit sub· ject for an insane asylum. It used to be charged that if a So­cla1ist came into possession of as much as five thousand dollars, he became a Capitalist overnight and forgot all about "sharing the wealth," but that was before rich men became converts to Roosevelt's Socialist program and pitched in to help him make this a Socialist nation. It is understandable how a person brought up in ignorance and with no understanding of the American form of government could become so mentally warped as to accept the phony ideals which Socialism and its twin, Communism, hold out, but the most contemptible specimen of hu· manily on the face of earth is a per­son of wealth who dishonors the Free Enterprise System which allowed his wealth to be accumulated, by do­nating money to organization! com· ~:~t.ed to the destruction of that sys- 'l'here are hundreds of such organ· izations and thcy simply could not cxistwithoutUnancialassistancefrom those who have a plentiful supply of this world's goods. Why they con­tribute to these outfits is the unsolved mystery of th£> age! and the reason why the Republic is threatened with replacement by a totalitarian form of govcrnment. We know of instances of contribu­tions of huge amounts by good Amer­icans to universities which are honey­combed With subversives who a re teaching thc children and grandchll­clrcn of sueh Jn(' /l that the Americ~ form of government is ali wrong and that Marx and Engels had the right answer. Also, we know of officials of such educational institutions whose privnte joke between each other is that they are able to put the bite on ''Reactionaries and Conservatives" for the money which enables them to promote the opposite theories to those in which these suckers fervently be­lieve. How any Americans could be ·smart enough to amass a vast fortune and, at the same lime, stupid enough to give it away to those who would deny to his children and his chil­dren's children the opportunity !or achievement which he enjoyed is the :~S\e~~~ar question which defies an Men o! wealth have a greater re· sponsibUity for maintaining the Amer­ican form of gov~rnmcnt and pre­serving the American way of life than all others for it is they who have been Hs greatest beneficiaries, and the pow­er to end subv~sion lies largely with them through their influence and wealth. They can do th~ by refusing to endow institutions of learning until they have such institutions irrevoc­ably committed to a curricula of Americanism and written pledge that such program will be continued. Also, they can accomplish this end by re­fusing to give a thin dime to ministers who preach the Social Gospel from the pulpit and by sitting on their hands when representatives of sub­versive groups and organizations come 'o1iciting funds just as they now do when approached by patriotic Americans for badly-needed help, Maybe a,e information has been made available to taxpayers about how much the "summit" talks at Geneva cost them but if so, we have not seen it. It was reported by the press at the time that 225 persons were in the delegation. Business concerns require that ex­pense accounts be turned in and surely taxpayers are entitled to know how their money is spent. Southerners Can Be Pushed So Far And No Further Attorney General Brownell says, accqrding to the Associated Press. that he will first have to determine wheth­er the Federal government has juris­diction in the case, before barging into Mississippi to investigate their recent State election. He indicated that he didn 't know whether he had any Constitutional authority to probe into the que,tion of the violation of the civil rights of Negroes in that election, or not. We shouldn't think he would let a little thing like that stop him - just the mere fact that he had no Con­stitutional right. What is a little thing like the Constitution among friends any way, and especially if the civil rights of Negroes are involved? Now ii it were merely white people, that would be dillerent and he might be barred by the Constitution from muscling into the act. The Supreme Court has set a prece­dent and we arc surprised that the Attorney General should even ques­tion the Federal government's autitor­ity to go anywhere and do anything, We hope they let up on all this dis­gusting interference by Washington in the a!!airs of the states, before something happens that all or us will regret. The temper of Southerners is get­ting no better fast, and i! they keep on pushing and shoving white people around in efforts to appease NAACP, history might repeat itself. pc~~e fervently hope this doesn't hap- A Striking Steel Worker Gets A "Lock Out" At Home Our congratulations to Mrs. Es­ther Quigley of Chicago who went on strike against her husband who was striking against his employer, and who, from all accounts, has a lot more sense than the head of the house.

Officials of the strike-bound company, Harrison Steel, mean­time had told the strikers that un­less they came back to work by a certain time, the company would fold up and go out of business. They came. It seems to us that the heads of the company and Mrs, Quigley are level-headed and responsible Am­ericans and we th ink the company should fire her old man and hire Mrs. Quigley. ----- "Very frankly, I do not belier:e the salvation of the American people lies in the hands of those tvho hold public office; it lies in the hands of the American people tvho, if they are to save them­selves. must arise and put a stop to the poWers we are placing in the hands of our leaders ." - J. Bracken Lee, Governor of Utah. Some statistically-minded per­son has figured that, during the si.-r months of the 84th Congress, the members of the Senate used approximatelu12,000,000 words in addresses and debate in that body while members of the House de­livered themselves of approxi­mately 8,000,000 words. That seems like an awful lot of mileage to run up on hmn.an tongues but the $64 dollar question is: "While doing all this talking, did they say anything"? A desire to restore and preserve the mental health or a nation's people is, of course, a noble impulse and a project with which all good citizens are In hearty accord. In the hands ol the wrong persons, however, such pro­posals have a dangerous connotation which suggests extreme caution in dealing with the subject. There were several factors in con­nection with the movement along this line which sprang up within recent years. and which engendered suspi­cion on the part of those who have learned by sad experience to always look for "the Nigger in the woodpile" in connection with these spontaneous activities "for the public good"-and who have usually found one. The first questionable incident was a fifteen million dollar subsidy from the Ford Foundation for a study of the subject, Ford economists and re­search scientists being what· they are. There were also a flood of "mental health" bills introduced in various State legislatures, including one in Congress providing !or a "President's Commission on Mental Health", to be composed of eighteen members ap­pointed by the President but who would have, of course, been chosen by his advisers who have been known to make some odd selections. The propagada for passage of "men­tal health" bills by State legislatures was overpowering in the immensity of its volume, and included around­the- clock spot announcements over radio and television, tons of literature which deluged the lawmakers, bill­board advertising, newspaper editor­ials, lectures and all the other familiar types of high-powered promotion where a cer tain end is desired and money is no object . These bills were of a startling simi· larity and provided Cor a menbl ''Counselor" endowed with unlimited authority to decide who was and who was not sane, much on the order of the Russian MVD to decide who is and who is not guilty of crime. In addition to the right to incarcerate a person whom he might suspect of being "in­sane", this "Counselor", in the Cali- "GoodWordsAreAMaskFor Concealment Of Bad Deeds" Although we realize that the "new fornia bill at least, was empowered to "endorse and cash any checks payn.blc to such patient" and to "sell 'or en­cumber the property of h is estate" and to take over any f unds coming in to such ,person. What a break for a lucky stiff serv­ing as "Counselor" to punish h is per­sonal enemies, as well as the political foes of the Governor who appointed him, and getting rich while he was doing It! Perhaps the most revealing incident in connection with the movement and which helped to defeat the measure in California, was a pamphlet said to be written by one Halleck Hoffman and widely circulated by the Friends Service Committee. This social-mind­ed eager beaver is the Son of Paul G. Hoffman and promises to go his old man one better in the graceful art of "do-gooding" on an unlimited and un­restricted scale. In this pamphlet young Hoffman undertook to pinch-hit as a psychia­trist and analyze "What makes a super-patriot a super-patriot"? This little squirt offered the gratuitous sug­gestion that "understanding such peo­ple may enable us to help them" and explained the symptoms indicating that these "super-patriots" are suffer­ing from poor "mental health." They see a threat in the United Nations and UNESCO because these groups include people of differCl"lt culture and langu­age and religion and race" he pointed out which indicated clearly to him that they suffer from a "paranoid de­lusion". This twisted twig from a bad­ly bent tree urged "friendly and lov­ing attitude toward such mentally ill persons". This adolescent outburst from a left-wing amoeba is claimed to have set the cause of "mental health" back ~~~~:e~;alsm~~~~l~s t~:e m:~~ti~~i;~d to study the subject carefully before ~~deo;:~~g h:~l~h'~r~~~ts~;stioC:11 ~~1~1 i~~ make sure ti1at such measures have the full approval of legitimate medical authorities.

The only time when Communists arc sincere is in their published docu­ments outlining their plans for con­quering the United States and other countries not yet behind the Iron Cur­tain, such as a statement from Stalin revealing the treachery of the Bol· sheviks in dealing with other nations. This statement is found in vol. 11, page 277 of a publication called "Elec-lions in Petersburg" published Janu· ary 12,1913 in Moscow, and re-issued in 1946, in which Stalin is quoted as saying: "A diplomat's words must have no relation to action - other­wise what kind of diplomacy is it? Words are one thing, actions an­other. Good words arc a mask for the concealment of bad deeds. Sincere diplomacy is no more possible than dry water or iron wood." What a strict interpretation of Bul­ganin's "good words" at Geneva and the Communists' "bad deeds" in later shooting down planes carrying Amer­ican citizens! ! !

Page 7 The City Council of the small city of Baxley, Georgia, has passed an ordinance which provides that before any one can solicit members for "any organization of any sort" application must be made to the Council for a permit. The ordinance further provides that if the solicitor is "a salaried employe or orticcr of the organization !or which he seeks members", he shall pay $2,000 for his license and $500 :for each member signed up. The Saturday Evening Post made violent editorial objection to this or­dinance and claimed it was aimed di­rectly at labor union organizers. If this is true, the Baxley City Council deserves a medal for thC'y arc the one oC few units ol organized Am­erican Society to our knowledge that has been able to get the best of labor union leaders and we say more power to them! They don't have any unions agita­ting and threatening around Blxley and results are what count. When killing a snake, it matters little whether you shoot it or take it by the tail and snap its head off. The rank and file members of union labor are just like other Amer­icans and only join, in many case!~, be­cause they can't work il they don't. It is the racketeer bosses who arc responsible for the black eye being acquired by some of the unions. The Federal gove1·nment goes after income tax evaders with all its resou1·ces and makes it tough on Americans who fail to divvy up but no effort is made to coilect billions "loaned" to foreign coun­tries which never had any inten· tion of paying back the borrowed money of American taxpayers. Poge 8 Hoodlums Of Entertainment World Defy Investigators When the Walter Committee of Congress opened its hearings in New York recently, stage and screen hood­lums defiantly refused to answer questions as to their Communist con­nections and one loud-mouthed char­acter shouted abuse at members of the committee as rowdy spectators cheered loudly. No one was very much surprised at the behavior of the witnesses since Congress itself has gone on record as favoring subversives and extending every possible protection to those who seek to overthrow the American gov­ernment. Very little cooperation with the chairman and members of inves­tigating committees by witnesses i!!l expected in future, thanks to the strong sentiment against exposure of Communists demonstrated in the past by our top-bracket lawmakers. Any way, any hearing on the sub­ject held in New York has two strikes on it to start and such undertaking is much like conducting a similar probe in the city of Moscow. The actors appearing before the committee were mostly third-rate per­formers who didn't hesitate to usa the occasion to hog a little free pub­licity and ham it up all over the place. Particularly disgusting was the behavior of a horse-faced actress named Sarah Cunningham and who, after hiding behind the fifth amend­ment rushed out to pose proudly for photographers grinning from ear to ear. At next day's session an actor, George Hall, had the decency to ad­mit that he had been a Communist party member but had renounced it afte~ nine months. He told the com­mittee, under oath, that the Cun­ningham woman was a member of the same Communist cell to which he belonged. An ironic slant to the proceedings was the simultaneous release of a revised report on the number of American boys who were killed by their barbarian captors in Communist prison camps in Red China, the same barbarians which these cheap hams from Broadway were defending by hiding behind the fifth amendment. These are of the same breed of cat­tle that McCarthy had to deal with and because he knew how to handle them, he incurred the everlasting en­mity of their sympathizers in Con­gress. SOME CHOICE QUOTATIONS FROM AN OFFICIAL COMMU· NIST BOOKLET PUBLISHED BY WORKERS LIBRARY PUBLISH· ERS, NEW YORK, TITLED "THE NEGROES IN A SOVIET AMER· ICA": uNo white worker is deserving of the name of Communist unless he constantly carries on a struggle against every manifestation of race prejudice among the work­ers ... " uA Soviet Govc:rnment must confer greater benefits upon the Negroes than upon the whites for the Negroes have started with less. This is the real test of equality. This is the only way that the basis for real equality can be establish­ed ... " "Any act of discrimination or of prejudice against a Negro will become a crime under the revolu­tionary law. The basis of race pre­; udice will no longer exist because capitalism will no longer exist .• , Then it will no longer be a question of wiping out the basis for such prejudice, but of merely obliterating the remnants ..• To the first generation of new Soviet Americans, race prejudice and discrimination will appear like a horrible disease of a past age • • . " "The Supreme Court decision is one of the most unwarranted and unjustified invasions of States Rights in the history of our coun­try." -Governor Allan Shivers of Texas. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Texans Will Fight To The Last Ditch To Preserve Segregation There's a rainbow of hope in the dark "integration" sky in Texas. The courageous spirit of Texas manhood which had been some­what dulled by more than twenty years of imported propaganda, brought into this country by way of Washington, is re-asserting itself and definite steps are being taken to counter the worst blow directed against the South since the Civil War. The Attorney General of Texas has warned school boards who had ordered integration this Fall that this step violates the Constitu .. tion and the 1aws of Texas and that if they persist in this course, they risk receiving no State funds for operational expenses. A Committee appointed by the Governor to study the situation has reached the same conclusion and issued a public statement that segre­gation in the schools is still the law of Texas. Following the Supreme Court's ruling which applied only to cer­tain Negro ~hildren in Virginia, South Carolina, Delaware, Kansas and the District of Columbia, the NAACP, composed partly of Negroes but mostly o( rich white trash, saw a chance to put a fast one over. They gave the South the rush act, with their attorneys and representa­tives spilling out into each State and insisting that de-segregation was now the law of the land. They were about to get by with it when the people of Texas, as well as its officials waked up and went into action. As a result of this awaketling, Citizens Councils have sprung up in many sections of the State composed largely of parents whose chil~ dren would be affected by integration and who have joined these or­ganizations in order to do everything within legal limits to prevent this tragedy from being visited on the schools, now or in the future. A majority of school boards throughout the State have taken the position that segregation will continue in the 1955 school term, pend­ing further clarification of the subject. It is true that a district judge in Big Spring, Texas, who is a convert to racial deviation, ruled recently that the law of Texas which allocates money to schools on a segregated basis is illegal but this ruling has served to stiffen the spines of Texans who expect to exhaust every legal resource in preserving segregation and prevent, if possible, hot­headed and illegal organizations from taking the matter into their own hands. The turning of the tide from abject surrender to active resistance is believed to have been inspired largely .by the insolent and over­bearing attitude of the br own boys in this National Association for the Agitation of Colored P eople who got drunk on what they thought was power of their race over white people's i ns titu tions and who acted accordingly. The people o( Texas, like those of the Deep South, have a1ways been extremely fond of good Negroes and have been their best, and only, friends among the people of the forty-eight States of the Amer­ican Union. But in the final analysis and when the chips are down, they just don't go much for arrogant Mulattoes who come barging into the State from out of the East making threats, giving out insulting inter­views through the press and issuing orders to school boards, before rolling away in long black Cadillacs. This big-shot behavior back-fired with a bang that reverberated throughout the State and provided a needed shot-in-the-arm to apa­thetic Texans and served as a warning of what the future might hold unless the citizens went into action and asserted their Constitutibnal rights. They are doing that now. While the matter is far from settled, it is now clear that Texas, along with other States in the South, will exhaust every legal resource available in resisting the attempt of a Marxist-conscious Supreme Court to bring about mongrelization of the white race by judicial rul­ing. A Powerful Potential Force Which Could Change The Course Of History We are advised by those whose opinions are backed by several years of research on the subject that there are in the United States at this time approximately 28 million politically displaced Americans. They were abandoned and left without political afCiliations when both the Democratic and Republican Parties were absorbed by the Socialist party. Holding definite and inflexible convictions on prin­ciples of government, they have refused to accept the lesser of two evils in voting for a candidate for president and have chosen instead to stay away from the polls in the last several national elections. They are men and women who have never been, and could not be, tempted to become associated with Communist front organizations or to engage in any type of subversive activity against their country and are able to recognize Kremlin propaganda no matter how subtle or cleverly disguised. They share with all good Americans a feeling of Q.isgust and con­tempt for such groups as Americans for Democratic Action, NAACP, American Education Association, National Council of Churches and other propaganda transmission belts but continue to remain aloof and do nothing about it. In brief, they constitute a powerful potential political bloc which, if it could be mobilized into a solid unit, would be able to cleanse both major parties of corruption, control both national conventions and restore Constitutional government in the United S tates. September, 1955 We Can Live In Hope If We Die In Dispair No matter which political Party is in power in Washington, every fourth year is a good year 1or taxpayers. This is always the year just before the national election when party lead­ers get out the old party platform, dust it off, bone up on what It said and start giving out interviews saying they are now going to do the things they promised to do 1our yean be· fore. They are, they swear, going to ba14 anee the budget, cut taxes and adopt a program of economy In govern­ment. They never do it, of course, and as soon as the election is over, they !ile their campaign promises away for another four years, but it sure sounds good and often they get so enthused and worked up about it all that they almost believe what they're saying. Take the "wartime" taxes that women have to pay on purses, cos­metics, jewelry and practically every~ thing else except the food they cat and the clothes they wear. This was a "temporary'' tax and was going to be repealed right alter the war. If memory serves, the war has been over ten years and during that ten years we have given away billions to all countries who would agree to accept it but we just couldn't afford to reduce wartime "luxury taxes," at home. But to compensate us, this Is the good year we are living through now and even though there probably won't be any tax reduction, it's wonderful to think there will be and to live In anticipation and hope. In fact, if it were not !or this "good year" that rolls around every four years in which we can all luxuriate in rosy dreams of tax relief, the American people would feel like ~~owin£ in t h e SJ)Ol~l d ii}!:W Racial Deviates Try To Make Something Out Of Nothing How fully many newspapers in Tex4 as and throughout the country have succumbed to the influence and propa~ ganda of the NAACP was demon­strated in a disgusting Incident at the Houston airport during August. An Indian government official and his secretary were passing through Texas enroutc to Mexico in a plane which landed at the international air­port in Houston. Since both men were black, and since Texas law demanded that blacks and whites must not be served in the same dining room, the two Indians were shown into a pri­vate dining room reserved for Negroes by the airport waitress when they went into lunch. Her name was Mrs. Mary Alley and she was merely car­rying out her duties since she had no way of knowing the two men were not what they appeared to be. No harm was done in the least. In fact, both men got the impression that they were being shown special consideration by being given a private room in which to be served, and left on their plane still laboring under this assumption. The incident should have ended there and would have except that it offered too much of an opportunity for propaganda and the newspapers went to town on it. It was blown up into an affair out of all proportion to its importance and appeared on the front pages of newspapers for days on end and it was hinted that it might develop into an "international inci­dent." Houston's mayor even got into the act and demanded an investigation even though he, himself, was at the moment under investigation in con­nection with alleged irregularities and corruption in his administration and threatened with Impeachment. The only one who behaved with dignity and common sense in the whole performance was the waitress, Mrs. Mary Alley.
