In our book such thugs should be dealt with in the same manner as Mlf otber u iminal. JuM, 1950 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Poge7 (Continued From Page 1) was composed of a few outstanding and sound-thinking attorneys who were there not because of any sympathy with the aims and purposes of current party leadership but who always ride herd on such gatherings in order to keep a weather eye out for additional danger signals to the interests they represent. Observers viewing the affair from the sidelines were agreed that Austin was well chosen for this particular meeting, since the capital city of Texas is heavily dotted with radicals, including a press completely sympathetic to Truman and the_ Fair Deal, a':ld a small smattering of that most detest­able type of Amencan- filthy nch men who have amassed their fortunes under our system of free enterprise and who are now lying in with the forces who are out to destroy it. Many local bigwigs were on hand to help raise the flag, roll out the red carpet and extend the keys to the city including some who are fearless and intref?id in going out on the stump to do batue for the social program of the Fair Deal but who managed to avoid having to face bullets when our country was engaged in a shooting war. If the party clambake at Austin did nothing else, or served no other purpose, it did more than anything which has happened in recent years to point up the startling change in the quality of party leadership which has occurred within a comparatively few short years. The direction which this change has taken is, of course, a matter of opinion according to the viewpoint of those observing it. But, regardless of personal bias or individual political preferment, there are few who will not concede that by any device ever conceived by the human mind for measuring distance, it's a far cry from Roger Q. Mills, John H. Reagan, Joseph Weldon Bailey and other immortals of Texas history, to those who dominate the councils of the party in the State today. To The Friends Of The Southern Conservative We have bad several opportunities to get the paper financed in a subs~antial way but there have been provisions which have made it im­possible for us to accept these offers of aid. The Southern Conservative is not, and does not intend to be, the mouthpiece or house organ of any person or group of persons except the America~ people and especially those in the South who stand for a return of Constitutional government. Such energy or initiative as ~e may possess shall be devoted to fight­ing with tooth, claw and fang agamst the enemies of good government now in control in Washi~gton and we want to do this without bearing the label of any faction or chque. Whe~ we can no longer operate on this basis, we will fold up and go out of busmess. We feel sure that the matter will finally be worked out and that we will get adequate financing on the proper terms, but, in the meantime , if all those who have sent in contributions can influence one or two others' to do likewise, it will help to tide the paper over until it is on a sound financial basis. A friend in Austin vouches for the truth A good citizen of Ranger, Texas, P.

We wish to deny, before it is made, the charge that we are subsidi:r.ed by any special interests or that our underbking is just another scheme dreamed vp to attract the support of big busineu. In our discussions of State and National issues, we dtall show no more partiality to the Tycoons of Industry than we shall to the Curs of Labor. In fact, we seem to remember that some of the biggest business men in the nation teamed up with labor union racketeers in playing ball with the New Deal when that economic atrocity was riding the crelt and have continued to string along with its more vicious counterpart currently administering the SJOV· ernment in Washington.

We are firmly committed to the principle of States; Rights and we hold that the people of an ypartof the United States are entitled to maintain their own social customs and traditions without interferenc. from politicians seek· ing oves to perpetuate themselves in power. We are unequivocally in favor of Free Enterprise as opposed to govern­ment ownership of business and insist on the responsibility of every American to seek to improve his social and economic condition through initiative, energy and thrift rather than leaning on the arm of government for support. Weconcedetoeverymantherighttowork and the opportunity of profit­:~~~:. mployment regardless of whether he does, or does not, belong to a labor On the other hand, we claim for the employer the irrevocable right to hire and tire his employees without instructions from any government agency or intimidation by Federal Police. We feel that at thi1 crucial time ;., history, ;, is im,.rative that news­papers and other groups seeking to influence public: opinion should exert every effort within their power to help preserve our republican form of gov· ernmant, our Free EnterpriM system •nd American way of life. We shall exertallourenergiestoth•tend. These are the sentiments of the SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE and al· though ours may be only one small voice crying in the wilderneu, we will fight for fundamental American principles, as we undentand them, without apology to any man or se-t of men.
