Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 9 FORT WORTH. TEXAS, JUNE, 1958 No.6 Blaming United Nations For Disloyalty Of Washington Officials Is Weak Alibi Enemies of United States Score Their Greatest Victory To Date As we go to press the powerful influence of a little cell of Inter4 nationalists in Geneva over the American governing machinery has been demonstrated in a manner which leaves no room for doubt, no argument and no recourse. American producers have been whipped to their knees. By the same token, their foreign competitors have been given the green light In American marts of trade and if those business men in this country whose blood, sweat and tears have gone into the building of an Industry don't like it, they can move to Yugoslavia, Poland, England, Iraan, Japan or some other favofed country and once again enjoy the full protection of legislation enacted by the American Congress for the benefit of the people of every land except those of the American Re­public. By an overwhelming majority, members of the House of Represents~ tiveo; in Washington approved a Soviet five-year-plan when they voted to extend or that period the reciprocal trade agreement. The plan was first put into effect through an arrangement that vio­lated the Constitution which gives tariff-making powers to Congress and was sponsored by foreign enemies of the United States whose objective was, and is, to destroy American industry, make this country dependent on other nations for strategic materials thereby immobilizing our fighting forces in time of war. The results of the vote on this measure would not have been differ~ ent if Krushchev had personally pressed the buttons which registered the vote of members of Congress on the subject. Influence Peddling Is Reminiscent Of Truman's Mink Coats and Deep Freezes lt is an awful thing when men of high position have their reputa­tions smirched by scandal but there probably will not be as many tears shed over the fall from grace of Mr. Sherman Adams as there would ordi­narily be in the case of human defection. Reigning over the White House in solitary and aloof splendor and exercising the authority of a feudal lord, Mr. Adams has not exactly endeared himself to the American public. His admission that he accepted the hospitality of a rich industrialist to the extent of $2,000 in a swanky hotel and that he later made appoint­ments for his host with government agencies with which the industrialist has done business, are reminiscent· of the Truman administration where free hotel rooms. as well as mink coats and deep freezes, also figured in the headlines of that time. Like Mr. Truman, the President has been unable to concede that anyone on his staff could do wrong and has refused to fire the offender according to the Press. However, we are sure that_ the President is greatly embarrassed by these disclosures since his administration has been singularly free from ~~~~d:!s~u~l;;'l~~:~:~~ ~no~~~~~~~t~~o0~:~~~~1~~~:~;dp:~~d~~~; prideThe administration bas operated on a global basis and while it has been often accused of selling out American industry and the rights, freedoms and sovereignty of the American people, there have been no instances of petty Influence peddling u~til now. . In brief, it was believed that the Eisenhower admimstration ha~ no 11rnfnor vices" and the President will have the sympathy of his admirers now that his Chief Assistant has been caught In the act. There is not the slightest doubt that one of the blackest !)ages In American history was written on that day in August, 1945, when members of the United States Senate ratified the Charter of the United nations. By this mon­strous and tragic blunder, they placed in jeopardy the sovereignty of the American Republic and the authority of the three brai1ches of the Federal government to dis· charge their functions as provided in the Constitution. There is, however, little basis for the claim that the anti· American performances of the Supreme Court, the Con­gress and the White House are vhe result of our member­ship in the Communist-controlled United Nations. Wash· ington was full and running over with high-powered, hard-core and dedicated Internationalists long before the United Nations was thought up and we, for one, refuse to buy the idea that this Red-infested, spy-ridden one-world outfit could make the elected representatives of the American people betray their own country if they didn't wa nt to. Legend has it that you may cut off two or three sections of a jointed snake but so long as the head and a .,POrtion of the body remain, the reptile will continue its poisonous functions. In the minds of a vast segment of the American people, the United Nations represents the snake and the Supreme Court, the White House and thr Con~ress- composing the three branches of the Federal govern­ment- are but the helpless sections of its writhing, slimy and repulsive body. • They hold that it is futile to bang away at the Executive, Legislative and Judicial divisions of the government until the head of the serpent has been crushed and the United States is taken out of the United Nations and the United Nations is banished from the United States. It does little good, they reason, to rail at the Supreme C~mrt for its unfa1ling practice of handing down rulings in favor of convicted Com­munists; to criticise Congress for catering to Soviet. pressure or to castigate the White House for its inn~merable concess1?ns .to Moscow propaganda so long as the United Nat10ns Charter remams m ~ffect-a Charter which was ratified by the United States Senate and s1gned by an American President as a treaty which abdicated the authority of our three branches of government and which made the United Nations the supr~~ee~~~C:;~~fh:~t~e~~i;~0°~~~~~!~~r!~t~:~~~~~ii~~tion which sars: " ... and all treaties made, or which shall_ be made, under the aut_honty of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land and the JUdges in every State shall be bound thereby, anything in the laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding." They point to such outrageous violations of the Constitution bY_ our public servants as the infamous decisio~ of the Supre~e Court on mte­gration; to the sending of armed troops mto the soveretgn Stat~ of Ark­ansas by the Executive and to the repeated robbery of Amencan tax­payers by the Congress for the benefit of alien enemies, as actions which are mandatory under our treaty agreement with the United _Nations. As a red-blooded American who has not, and never will, surrender our citizenship to a Communist-dominated one-world slave State, we reject this noxious, indefensible and appalling theory. . . It is unquestionably true that all the un-Amencan pollctes adopted by the Supreme Court, the Congress and the White House designed to abolish the Americah form of government are based on conv.ent~ons specified in the Charter of the United Nations whose over-all ObJeCtives include universal mongrelization of the races, the enforcement of man- (Continued on Page 2} Millions of Americans Think It-The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE June, 1958 Soviet Envoy Should Be Ejected For Insulting Our Government (Houston Chronicle Just as the Roosevelt adminis­tration made one of the greatest mistakes in American history when it recognized the government of Soviet Russia, the Eisenhower ad­ministration made a serious error when it accepted Mikhail A. Men­shikov as ambassador a few months ago. This Menshikov, who makes a great show of being a hail fellow well met, a smiling extrovert as compared with the dour Molotov and the equally granite-faced Gro­myko, is actually as sinister a fig­ure as his boss Khrushchev or any or the gooni wflo run Russia. He was the head of U.N.R.R.A.'s op­erations in Poland in 1945, charged with the duty of distributing to the people the gifts of food supplied by other nations, principally the United States. It is a proven fact that he withheld food from non­Communists and allowed them to starve. In view of that fact, his creden­tials as ambassador should not have been accepted. The United States is not the sort of country to deal with gangsters and beasts on a basis of equality. The other day Menshikov proved again that he is no fit representa­tive of a foreign country to treat with the United States. Appearing on a radio program, he insulted the government of this nation. Asked if he thinks that our gov­ernment wants war, he replied, "Well I don't think I'll be in a po­sition' to answer this question. I simply am not acquainted yet we11 enough with the policies of the gov­ernment to answer this question." Menshikov has been in this coun­try for several months. He knows the peaceful intentions of the American government well enough. The man lied. Not only that, in saving what he did he virtually called President Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles liars, for they have asserted our desire for peace and reiterated them count­Jess times. In 1952 Russia declare~ Ameri­can Ambassador George Kennon no longer acceptable for saying Jess. Menshikov should be sent packing. He should be thrown out of the country. How shrewd and diabolically clever the Soviets are! They beg­ged for a "summit conference" and our Washington leaders were adament in opposing it. In some way, their positions. have. been reversed and the Prestdent 1s now courtinq Krushchev and insisting on a Geneva conference. Charac­teristically the Communist dicta­tor is now playing hard to get. What fools they are able to make of us! HJ am concerned for the security of our great nation. Not so much because of any potential threat from without but because of the insidious forces working from within'' - General Douglas Mac­Arthur. We'll Write "Stiff Notes" And Then Forget About It There is scarcely a day that passes that the Soviet Union is not guilty of some act which would justify the United States in with­draw i n g recognition from that bunch of bandits. Their latest offense against in­ternational law and human decency is their refusal to return the Amer­icans who accidentally ventured into East German territory in a helicopter and were interned as spies. There was a time in this nation's history when the United States commanded the respect, not to say the fear, of all nations and such an indignity would have been un­thinkable. But during the past quarter of a century we have interfered in the affairs of every nation on earth and, as a result, none of them have any respect for us. "Familiarity breeds contempt" is an old adage but it holds true with nations as with in· dividuals. The White House and the State Department will write "stiff notes" to the Communists concerning the lost fliers in East Germany but the beasts will probably only laugh at us. An Honest Man Is One Who Will "Stay Bought" Another contemptuous gesture against State Sovereignty was made by the President and the Con­gress in the passage and signing of le~aislation making around $700,- 000.000 of the taxpayers' money available to the States for an ex­tension of unemployment benefits. The measure would bribe the States into agreeing to extend by fifty per cent the number of weeks in which jobless workers can now draw benefits. The fact that acceptance of this dole would violate many State con~ stitutions or that such procedure would require legislative sanction was apparently beside the point. The big idea was to throw out a sop to labor in return for votes and since the measure originated at the White House, Republicans expect naturally to reap the harvest. There is no doubt that the Re­publicans are going to need the votes but the result is questionable. There is an old saying that "an honest man is one who will stay bought" and we doubt seriously. if these jobless laborers will "stay bought" until election time. It won't be too long until your congressman comes back home to campaign for re-election and to ask your support. Meantime, you should familiarize yourself with his voting record and if you don't like it, tell him so and vote against him provided he has an opponent. Ij he doesn't, scratch his name any way. The time ha.s come for action. All honor to Dr. Edwin L. Rip~ py, head of the Dallas school board who has announced that he and his colleagues cannot flout the laws of the State of Texas which have not been challenged by State Courts. He had reference to the Texas sttttute which provides that State funds will be withheld from schools which integrate the races without a vote of the people on the subject. The nation·s school boards need more men of Mr. Rippy's stature and respect for law. The supreme Court has become far more supreme than judicial says Lynn Land1·wn. of the Dallas Morning News. From a nation governed by law our country has become a nation governed by a few men. Powerful, well-financed and highly organiz4 ed minority groups have the country by the tail with a down4 hill pttll. Blaming United Nations (Continued from Page I) dateo; by armed troops and the confiscation of the wealth of the United States for re-distribution among the under-developed nations of the world. But, in the first place, the provisions of the United Nations Charter are not self-enacting and there is no Court in the United States which has held that they are. They must be implemented by legislative action of the countries involved and that is where the treachery, perfidy and double-crossing of our representatives in Washington come in. They are voluntarily putting into effect, one by one, the vile and unspeakable provisions of the United Nations Charter. In the second place, no official action was ever taken by mortal ~~~i~~~~v~:~~~~ ~~~~ ~~~~~oatn~e i~arsc~~=d P~~;:::~~e: ~i :~~c~~~~~a States Senate to rescind its action in ratifying the United Nations Charter if it so dPsires. If the majority of the members of the Congress were not converts to the rotten Marxist theory of "from each according to his ability to each according to his need" they would have resigned their jobs rather than sacrifice their honor as they have constantly done in committing extor~ tion against American taxpayers in the name of foreign aid. The Supreme Court rendered its de!ision on integration not because of the United Nations but because its Chief Justice is, and has been all his adult life. committed to mongrelization of the white and black races and because the other eight members of the Court either hold the same views or were so cowardly that they could be whipped into line which amounts to the same thing. And the President, in direct violation of the Constitution, sent armed troops into the sovereign State of Arkansas because his allegiance is, and has always been, to the principle of a one-world government and because the breaking down of State sovereignty is essential to its accom~ plishment. The officials of the three Departments of the American government are free agents of the sovereign citizens and are not compelled to act under duress by the United Nations. What they have done was done voluntarily and they would have done the same things even if the vile pile of stone and glass on the East River in New York were still just a gleam in Alger Hiss' eye. We concede that almost the greatest service which could be rendered to the citizens of the American Republic would be the complete liquida­tion of the United Nations but transcending even that urgent need is our imperative obligation to out AMERICANS in the Congress, on the Su­preme Court and in the White House. All this is not to say that our representatives in Washington are not controlled by powerful, invisible forces because they are, but it is not necessarily the United Nations which is merely one of the pawns and instruments of the unseen rulers who actually govern. The men who call the shots and play the tunes to which Washington officials dance are on the top rungs of human society and wield a pow~r over the United States and other countries which is without parallel m the history of the world. Their sinister purpose so far as the United States is concerned is to influence foreign policy and domestic legislation and this they do through powerful religious, educational, labor and minority group lobbies whic!t dot \~ashington like spots on a smalloox victim and through vicious, anti­Amencan propaganda disseminated by vast tax-exempt Foundations whose hl!ge grants and donations have largely subsidized American pubilc opmion as expressed in a large section of the press, radio, tele~ vision, pulpit and other public communications media. But, although these invisible rulers unleash every resource at their command ~o sway the actions of the Congress, of the Supreme Court and of th.e Wh1te House, there is still no compulsion and no excuse for the representatives of the three branches of the Federal government to obey the commands of this invisible voice. In spite of much evidence to the contrary this is still, at the moment, a Constitutional Republic and when the citizens of the United States go to the polls, they do not cast their ballots for representatives of the United ~a~t~ns or for the shadowy figures in an invisible government but for mdtv1duals who are morally and Constitutionally committed to serve the interests of the United States, to promote its well-being and to protect its solvency and its security first, last and always. . When they fail to perform this sacred mission, they are traitors to !hetr country and should be forcibly removed from office, either through Impeachment or at the polls. To blame their defection to International Communism on our mem­bers~ ip in the ~nited Nations is to proceed from a false premise and to provtde them With an escape hatch from their own perfidy. Juno, 1951 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVf ~·9• l Instead of Annexing More States Let's Get Rid of Some We Have Election In California Was Straw In the Wind The vote ol the national House ------------------­of Representatives to include Alas­ka as the forty-ninth State of the American Union is perhaps the most colossal piece of legislative idiocy ever indulged in by so-called representatives of a free people. Outside of being sacrilege to the dead founders of the American Re­public who set up a compact con­federation of States within speci­fied boundaries, there is not one sane, logical reason for reaching out almost to the Russian border for additional territory. When we annex the Eskimos, the next step will be to take in the Asiatics in Hawaii and the mon­grelized populations in the Virgins, Puerto Rico, Guam, Wake and any other rudderless floating islands drifting around in both oceans. It we must fiddle with the topog­raphy of the United States why not whittle it down instead of broad­ening it? For instance, instead of reaching out for new territory why not get rid of some we already have, like New York for instance, where only about one person in ten can soeak English and where most of the subversive movements against the American Republic originate? We could give it back to the Indians. The excuse that the annexation of Alaska was a platform demand ot both political partie s, behind which some members of Congress who voted for the bill took refuge, fs not only a laugh but a scream. Since when did e i t h e r political party ever give a hang about any ot their platform demands_ It they are going to start redeem­Ing party pledges at this late date, why couldn't it be one that was sound, if any, instead of an absurd pledge to give Statehood to Alaska or anv other far-flung area of the world? If this foolish proposal becomes ·law it will stand as an eternal in­dict~ ent against the patriotism, in­tegrity and common sense of those who voted for it. As we understand it, the Senate has not yet confirmed the appoint­ment of W. Wilson White a-! As­. ti!tant Attorney General in charge of "Civil Rights" but they prob­ably will a! they almost invariably confirm anybody whom the Pres­ident appoints regardless of his qualifications or stature. This man White has admitted publicly that he did the legal work on the dis­patching of troops into the Sover­eign State of Arkansas and he claims that the President has every legal right to do so. This is simply not true as the President is not authorized anywhere in the Con­stitution to take such action. White'" position on the &ubject makes him the champion of an­archy and an advocate of violation of Constitutional Government. Members of Canadian Parliament Now Receive Southern Conservative Beginning with last month's edi­tion, the Southern Conservative is now going to the 265 English-speak­ing members of the House of Com­mons of the Canadian Parliament at Ottawa. This arrangement was made pos­sible ·by Canadian friends of the paper who feel that the two coun­tries have many similar problems, that Communism is as much of a threat North of the border as in the United States and that some members of the Parliament are as guilty of playing politics with the national security of the Dominion as in the States. With all due respect to our Ca­nadian friends, we doubt that lat­ter assertion very much. We be­lieve that nowhere else on the face of the earth are there to be found reoresentatives of the people who will so consistently vote against the interests of their own country, and In favor of forei~n nations, as do a vast segment of our double­dealing, two-timing and fence­straddling politicians in Washing­ton. As evidence in support of our contention, we point to the fact that Canada is not nearly $300,- 000,000,000.00 in debt; that their statesmen do not give away the substance of the Canadian people to alien nations as fast as it js ac­cumulated; that their high legal au­thorities are not soft on Commu­nists and do not hand down rulings which give the Soviets full author-ity to overthrow the C~nadian gov­ernment; that their pohcies are not dictated bv racial minority groups and that there is no concerted ef­fort by those in high authority to surrender their sovereignty and consign the citizens to the status of serfs~ in a totalitarian One-World Slave State_ No, sir! We refuse to concede that the officials of any other na­tion can eoual some of ours in at­temots to imperil their own coun­try, bankrupt its treasury, and gi_ve it a vigorous shove toward obltv­ion. We are glad of course. and flat­tered, to have the Southern Con­servative go to members of the Canadian Parliament but we are strictly an isolationist and want it understood from the outset that our editorials are strictly for home consumption and that we wouldn't, even if we had the power, try to influence the action of lawmakers in any other country. That's what Is the matter with this country now- too much outside interfer- Although it may not do any good, we will con tinue to object to the un-Constitutional and un-American behavior of members of the Con­gress of the United States as it is they who ar~ sworn to preserve the American form or government. Canadian officials are not obligated to us and it is not within our prov­ince to criticize them.

Assuming that the bayonet-in­the- back type of education will be prescribed by the Federal govern­ment in the event the people of Texas resist integration of the races in schools, we figure that it will re­quire the expenditure of $88,412,- 399,845.00 to promote the cultural advancement of Texas' Negro stu­dents. Also, there are seven or eight other Southern States where Gun­nar Myrdal's race mixing program is going to meet with stiff opposi­tion, but our adding machine was not big enough to make the compu­tation of the total cost of the bay- On television England's Prime Minister appeared quit~ distin­guished looking and looked like an aristocrat to the Manor horn. It seems incredible that he could be the dedicated Socialist which his book uThe Middle Way'' shows him to be. onet-in-the-back educational proj­ect in those States so we just leave it to the imagination. In addition to this gigantic ex­penditure, we've ''Got the Whole World on our Hands" so jt looks like the poor slap-happy taxpayers in the American Republic are going to have to hustle to meet the obli­gations to which our great stat~s­men in Washington have commit­ted them. There will be dozens of differ­ent analyses of the California elec­tion on June 3rd in which Senator William E. Knowland lost the pri­mary "popularity contest" in that State to Democrat Edmund G. Brown by aoproximately a three to two margin. Various alibis will be offered and many face-saving explanations ad­vanced by Republican leaders but any American with the native in­telligence to add two and two and get four, knows that Modern Re­publicanism was at the bottom of the stinging defeat. There was no more popular fig­ure on the national scene than Sen­ator Knowland a few years ago when he was acting like an Amer­ican in standing up for Senator Joseph R McCarthy in his fight against Communism. pub I i c I Y stat i n g that the United States would withdraw from the United Nations if Communist China were admitted, defending States Rights and opposing Eisenhower generally in issues of greatest import to the American Republic. It was only when he began to work backwards like a crawfish and when he decided to throw in with the Internationalist gang in the White House and promote their Red oolicies, includin~ the notori­ous Civil Rights le~islation, that the American oeople lost confidence in him and his star began to wane. Popular disapproval of. his. defe_c­tion to Modern Reoubl1camsm ftl ­tered strongly into his own St~te and was reflected at the polls in the recent election. The fact that he continued to champion one sound plank in his olatform, the ri,e:ht to work legis­lation, failed to save him from the widespread scorn visited upon him by Conservatives for his surre~der to the administration's Internation­al , One-World program which is fast selling the United States down the river. It isn't that the Democrats of· fered anything better. Pat Brown is recognized by thoughtful people in California as a cheap demagogue who would sacrifice principle for political expediency any day in the week. It was, in our opinion, a well administered rebuke by the people of California to Senator Knowland for deserting the Conservative plat­form on which he was elected and enlisting in the left-wing White House crusade. And unless Mr. Richard Nixon does a right-about-face and re­traces the steps he has taken to­ward the far left, he is going to get the same treatment when, and if, his time comes to pass muster with the people of California in our opin­ion. The League of Women Voters of Texas is agitating for a revision of the Constitution of Texas. May­be the State's Constitution is not perfect but Heaven spare U! fr.om a revised Consitution in whtch the League of Women Voter& had a hand in the "revising".

THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: These Pests Are From The Wrong Country Governor Steve McNichols of Colorado is reported in the press to be highly incensed at the White House. It seems that a horde of grass~ hoppers have descended on Colo­rado and more than nine million acres are heavily infested with them. Believing that this plague of gras~hoppers represented an emer­gency disaster since it threatens the extermination of Colorado's valuable winter wheat crop, Gov­ernor McNichols appealed to the White House for Federal Aid to fight the grasshoppers but says he got turned down flat. The Governor should remember that it is domestic grasshoppers which are involved and that prob­ably automatically barred them from consideration. Now if it had been a case of a plague of locusts descending on India, for example, and threaten­ing to destroy Indian crops which compete with those of the United States, that would have been an entirely different matter. Meantime, Governor McNichols has called a session of the Colorado Legislature to handle the situation which is what he should have done in the first place, of course. While the treatment accorded the Nixons in Venezuela was dis­graceful by any standards, it points up the idiocy of some of our of­ficial actions. For instance, when the Venezulean dictator, Perez Jiminez, was thrown out of that country, he was given asylum here. Under our policy of not turning anybody away, we would prob­ably give sanctuary to Krushchev If he were booted out of Russia. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE A Politician's Actions Don't Always Square With His Words On June 3rd, Senator Lyndon Johnson of Texas made the com­mencement address at the Univer­sity of Houston and electrified the students and faculty with his elo­quent address against foreign aid. Or at least his remarks were in­terpreted as opposition to sending American money to alien nations in a futile attempt to buy friendship. He warned the students at that great institution that if America persists in its present course it will "be left a lonely island in an angry sea of world contempt." "We have," he said earnestly, "lectured our friends, scolded them, preached to them and talked down to them. We have placed reliance upon dollars alone to buy what can­not be bought." "The result of trying to buy re­spect with money instead of gain­ing it by unswerving adherence to our traditional principles is that men and nations everywhere that we had counted on as on the side of freedom are challenging openly and angrily our own assumption that we are secure as leaders of all free men," he said piously. In anybody's language, this was clearly a denunciation of "foreign aid" which seeks to "buy some­thing which can't be bought" and the senator's remarks made a deep impression on his listeners. Also, Houston papers played up his speech as the conclusions of a thoughtful statesman who had con­sidered the matter thoroughly and was disgusted with the sending of taxpayers' money to foreign coun­tries to "buy something which can­not be bought." If the story could stop right here, it woul'd be fine but there's a sad ending to it which, in the interest of accuracy, must be recorded. On Friday, June 6th, the foreign aid bill which provided that $3,· 712,900,000.00 of American taxpay· ers' hard-earned money would be sent to foreign countries as "for­eign aid," including several Com­munist nations, came before the Senate for a vote. ·On page 9387 of the Congression­al Record for June 6, it is recorded that 51 senators voted for the bill, 17 voted against it and 28 did not vote. Among those voting for the bill was Senator Lyndon Johnson of Texas. After voting to send money abroad to "buy something which cannot be bought," the Texas sen­ator paid this tribute to a colleague: "Mr. President, I wish to pay high tribute to the distinguished charman of the Foreign Relations Committee who has been the floor manager for the bill just passed and who has handled the measure with his usual" skill and efficiency. This is a very difficult piece of legislation as we all know. It is time-consuming. We spent days and nights working on the bill. It has now been passed, after most careful attention, by an overwhelm­ing vote. I believe that vote is a tribute to the industry of the dis­tinguished chairman of the com­mittee, Senator Theodore Green, and an indication of the confidence we have in him." (Applause) Period. Speaking Of Red Herrings, What About Anti-Trust Suits? We don't claim that is that way in every case but it has often been known to happen that when a na­tional administration wants to dis­tract public attention from its own scurvy actions, a suit is brought against reputable bUsiness firms for violation of the Anti-Trust law. The fact that the men who head the concerns against which the suits are brought are of high cali­ber and much less likely to engage in nefarious action than the poli­ticians who bring the suits, is gen­erally overlooked by the public which is as it was intended to be. The Anti-Trust law is a powerful weapon which is often used for the punishment of political enemies as well as a defense measure and while it is necessary that such law remain on the statute books, it will never command respect of the gen­eral public until labor unions, the worst violators of all, are brought under its provisions. It is a safe procedure for poli~ ticians to attack big business but big labor unions are a horse of an­other color. An integrated {(sex ring" has been uncovered in North Carolina ~;!h ~~~~0 a~r0e;: ~!as~~~! ~~:~~ They were discovered in the back yard of a vacant house in a small town in Robeson County where they had hidden from officers. The Grand Jury of Robeson County in­dicted the teen-agers as well as the parents of both the Whites and Negroes. Commenting on it the judge of the court said: "The facts revealed in this case amount to the greatest stench in the nostrils of decent citizens that has ever been aired in this courthouse." Ministers and church leaders who preach integration should have been compelled to attend the trial and listen to the testimony. When any one refers to the American Republic as a uDemoc­racy" we feel like asking them to go wash .their mouth out with soap. It is not only ignorant people who commit this unpardonable blunder but there is -scarcely a day passes ~-hat the e~itor of some newspaper 1.$ not gUtlty of the same mis~ representation. And editors are supposed ta be informed, intelli-gent people. June, 1958 Strikes Which Paralyze Industry Are Indefensible The vile and stultifying influence of labor union racketeers who call strikes to paralyze industry was re­flected at a prison farm in Texas recently. On May 27, approximately three hundred convicts at Eastham Prison Farm staged an eighteen-hour sit­down strike when they simply sat down in the prison's cornfield and refused to budge. They gave no reason for their action at first but later claimed that they didn't like the menu in the prison dining room. Newsmen who have repeatedly gone through food lines at the Texas State prison and its farms are almost unanimous in praise of the quality and quantity of food fed prisoners in Texas. Fortunately, prison officials are not spineless like some of our na­tional representatives in Congress who refuse to take action to pre­vent, or at least regulate, strikes. The prison officials simply decided to put an end to the nonsense and they did. They informed the con· victs that they would not be given a b~te to eat nor a drop to drink unt1l they went back to work and the-strike was soon over. To us the whole idea of unions being allowed to demobilize vital industry by the strike method is indefensible and it is disgraceful that it is tolerated. The action of labor unions in France who took advantage of the terrible situation there and con­stantly threatened to tie up the nation's traffic through a general strike is evidence of the danger of this weapon in the hands of irre­sponsible labor leaders. The same thing could happen here. In the event the Soviets de­cided to take us over literally, in· stead of only ideologically, a well· timed general stri)$:e would make the job duck soup for the Commies. Every American should have both the right to work and the right to quit work but no citizen should be compelled to quit his job on de­mand of some racketeer who might head his union. Ralph Yarborough, Senator from Texas, has introduced legislation to authorize $200.000,000 of Fed· eral grants annually for the next five years to public .junior colleges. With a straight face , he assured his colleagues and constituents that his bill "leaves control of these public junior colleges wholly to the States". Nobody could pos­sibly be stupid enough to believe that there could be Federal grants without Federal control, so his assertion can only be classed as hypocrisy and deaption. Where were the cloak and dag­ger spies in Central Intelligence Agency when it was decided to send Vice President Nixon to Cen­tral America? If it i-3' not their responsibility to find out and re­port conditions in Countries to be visited by High American officials, who is supposed to do it? June, 1958 This Group Should Be Probed By A Congressional Committee If committees of Congress who are concerned in International Communism's increasing penetra­tion of the United States want a lead, we suggest they look into World Goodwill, an outfit with three headquarters. One is in Eng~ land, one in Switzerland and the other in New York at 11 West 42nd Street. This organization issues tons of expensive literature, much of it in this country and occasionally puts out a "World Goodwill Bulletin." No names appear on its publica· tions and from the subversive na­ture of its activities it is under­stanl: lable that its sponsors would be ashamed to affix their signa· tures thereto. In the April Bulletin, World Goodwill is casting about editorial.: ly for "moral leadership" in the campaign to direct the "one world" in which they claim that we now Hve. Moral leadership could come from the United States, the edito­rial points out, if it were not for one thing. "The USA has great gifts, tremendous vitality and gen .. erosity but her policies are tied to an anti-Communist ... psycholo~ gy" and "no convincing or moral leadership is possible from such a platform,'' the editorial concludes. In another fulmination in the same Bulletin appears this explana .. t ion of what is wrong with the United States and other countries who, they claim, oppose Commu­nism: 11The g o v e r n m e n t s and peooles of the Western powers are predominantly and fundamenta1ly 'anti~Communist.' It is the thesis of this article that this basic and most deeply rooted attitude is not only one of the major factors hindering any easing of tensions between Russia and the West, but is the West's Achilles Heel in the cold war itself. In this sense 'anti~Com­munism' freQuently becomes a sub­stitute for clear thought and has dangerous political and psychologi­cal consequences .... All 'anti' at­titudes are inherently and psycho~ logically self·defeating in the long run and 'anti~Communism' is no exception." To cure this 'anti·Communism' attitude in the United States and other Western countries, and to overcome the "fundamental diffi~ culty" encountered by those who work for international understand~ ing, World Goodwill proposes that the textbooks on history must be Hreformed." · To accomplish this there now exists, according to the Bulletin, an International History Teachers' Conference "whose functions have grown to include not only the re~ vision of texts, but the whole de~ velopment of a new approach to teaching. . . • The Institute and those associated with its work have brought teachers, authors, histori~ ans and similarly concerned people from many countries together to d i s c u s s contentious questions. Many text books have been modi­fied; increasingly drafts of new text books are submitted to inter~ national scrutiny, so that errors of THE SOUTHERN. CONSERVATIVE Paqe5 ACTION Of CONGRESS INDICATES THAT There's Only One Hope For LAWMAKERS HAVE GONE FISCALLY INSANE France and That's DeGaulle While ordinarily we wouldn't trust any French politician as far as we could throw a dead mule, we think that if any one person can save the decadent and demoralized French nation, it is General Charles DeGaulle. Earlier in the year, following a nation~wide protest of taxpayers against Foreign Aid, both Republicans and Democrats in Congress took up the chant and beat their breasts in condemnation of this outrageous policy. And when they were home on their Easter vacation they made the welkin ring with expressions of disapproval of sending American dollars to bolster toppling Socialist governments of alien countries. In addition, they screamed ·to high heaven for tax reduction. All this noise and hot air soothed the taxpayers into their usual state of apathy and they actually believed their representatives in Washington meant what they said and that they would do something both about Foreign Aid and Tax Reduction. Ha! Ha! That was in the Spring. This is early summer and a majority in both Houses of Congress have just made decisions on both Foreign Aid and Tax Reduction, with the result that there will be no tax reduction and we will continue to pour Foreign Aid into alien treasuries including those of Communist countries. As of June 2, the national debt was $275,278,055,370.63 and instead of undertaking to reduce this debt as any persons, except fiscal lunatics, would have done in similar circumstances, commitments have been made which hold out the sinister promise that it will burgeon to $300,· 000,000,000.00 by July I, 1959. By their actions, a majority of both the House and Senate have indicated that they are afflicted with a form of fiscal insanity which would get them committed to a mental institution for life if their opera~ tions involved any activity except that having to do with the business of the people where the sky is the limit and anything goes. If these political embezzlers had been engaged in private industry and had employed the dishonest methods in handling private funds that they resorted to in disposing of public monies, they would have been sentenced to the penitentiary for twenty years. Instead of discharging their sacred obligations to the American people, exercising simple precautions to protect their national treasury and concerning themselves with the solvency of their own country, they obeyed the command of invisible One~World masters, tucked their tails like little puppies and performed with fidelity to alien welfare and against the interests of the American Republic. On the weak, asinine and thoroughly disproved theory that the money is to be used "to bulwark free nations against Communist aggres~ sian and infiltration" the indefensible amount of $3,712,900,000.00 was voted for Foreign Aid and to refute the claim that we intend to fight off Communism, it was provided that some of the money should go to Com~ munist Poland, Communist Yugoslavia and pro~Communist India, there~ by demonstrating that, instead of fighting Communism, we are subsi~ dizing it. As we write this, the House has passed a tax bill which retains corporation and excise taxes which were slated to expire and the Senate, if it runs true to form, will do likewise. The Congressional Record for June 6 will show the vote of the Sen­ate on the Foreign Aid bill. Every American should check it and see whether the two senators from his State voted in his interest or betrayed him. fact and interpretation can be elim~ inated before publication ... " Backing these subversive activi­ties against the United States are the Council for Education in World Citizenship and UNESCO, both sub­sidiaries of the United Nations and both lauded to the skies by World Goodwill. Subversion in school text books Is occurring with more frequency in American schools and right here is the source of much of it. This organization is begging for investigation and if the Committees of Congress do their duty, they will get it. The fact that they maintain head­quarters here in this country which they seek to destroy is sufficient justification for the proper authori­ties to take action against them. From Guernsey Breeders' Journal, Wrightsville, Pa.: ('The restraining fence which separated our neighbor's Angus bull came down by the weight of public opin· ion or the snow. Now four of our finest Guernsey heifers have been integrated. Conservatives Should Fight Reds and Not Each Other A woman in Michigan writes us: 141 not only like the way you write in the Southern Conservative but I like your attitude toward other patriots. You promote their mate­rial as if it were your own and I think this is as It should be. So many Conservatives are critical of other Conservatives." She is right about that. Too many Conservatives spend more time knifing each other in the back and trying to smear them than they do in fighting the Reds. Maybe this is their Idea of pro­moting the Conservative cause but it definitely isn't ours. From a subscriber in Seattle: u A columnist recently stated that there were more (independents' in the Unite~ States now than Repub­licans · or Democrats. By calling attention to the corruption of both parties, I feel · that you have had much to do with bringing this about." We learned to respect DeGaulle during World War II and our re­spect and admiration for him was based partly on the fact that Roose­velt hated him and partly on the proposition that he was loyal to his own country first of all. Roosevelt was dominated almost completely by Stalin and he hated DeGaulle because Stalin did and Stalin hated him because he was, and presumably still is, an uncom­promising anti-Communist. When Roosevelt bitterly denounced the French leader, we figured that there must be much that was good abol!t the man and we still think S(). - It is interesting to note that the anti~DeGaulle propaganda gener~ ated by Stalin, Roose v e It and Churchill is still being carried on in this country and especially in much of the nation's press. Biased newsmen have slanted their reports in every possible way to reflect discredit on the French patriot. For instance, they referred to his assumption of the office of Premier of France as his "grab for pdwer." If the Communists had taken over, they would have re .. ported it as the setting up of a ''Social Democracy.'' The tragic crisis through which France is going points up as noth· ing else could the ridiculous and absurd attitude of the leaders of the American government who have repeatedly taken the position that, without the support of France, this nation could not survive and that our national security would be imperiled. They did not explain how in the name of all that is holy any country which has no security it­self can provide security to another nation. If, for once, we will just keep our long nose out of the business of beleagured France and keep our big fat mouth shut about what that government should and should not do, there is a chance that General DeGaulle can work out of the hor­rible situation that exists there. Also, we have a feeling that the last thing the General wants or will tolerate, is advice from Washing­ton and London on the situation in Paris. His absolute loyalty to France is unchallenged and no national leader could be armed with a stronger or more powerful weapon. If he can't rescue his own country, it will have to go down the drain and there is nothing we can do about it. All we have ever done in any country where we have meddled with their internal affairs is to mess things up and make it easier for the Communists. Let's stay out of the French de· bacle, for a change, and see what happens. We knew recently that we had seen everything when we passed a teen~age girl on the street who had a drake~tail hair cut and side .. burns. Y e gods! THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVt June, 1951 American People Have Recourse When Election Time Rolls 'Round Presbyterians Propose to Move Negroes Into White Neighborhoods The people all over the country are very properly complaining about the State of the Union and of the behavior of those chosen to represent them in Washington. What they seem to forget, how~ ever, is their own responsibility in the matter. They would never think of hiring a private servant in their home and then turn the place over to them to run as they pleased with no supervision but when they vote for a public servant, their respon· sibility seems to end until next election time In the meantime, their represent· atives in the national capital are getting plenty of supervision all right but from the wrong people. Organized groups and subversive lobbies are as thick in Washington as fl eas on a mangy houncf and they work around the clock to put their programs through. Naturally, lawmakers get the im­pression that they are keeping in touch with the folks back home through these phony groups like the NEA, ADA, Committee for an Effective Congress, CIO, NAACP, National Council of Churches and a thousand others. If you would tell a Congressman that he is out or touch with senti­ment in his district, he would think you were crazy or something. Like Chicken Little in the nursery rhyme who thought the world was comin~ to an end because a cab­bage leaf fell on his tail. they are convinced that they are highly in­formed because a tiny minority of left-winv,ers have whispered in their pink ear. Every American citizen should keeo as strict a tab on the vote of their Senator and Congressman as thev do on prices at the supermar­ket or quotations from Wall Street. lf any employee in their kitchen, store. office or factory were caught stealin~. they would kick that em­ploye out. That's exactly what they should do in the case of dishonest repre­sentatives in Washington. They have the authority to fire them at the ballot box, and if they've got the spunk they should have, they will give their public servant the tin can treatment when he votes against the best interests of the American Republic. Those in position to know tell us that the reception to the Nixons on their return from Central America in which 100.000 persons were reported to have taken part was composed mainly of govern- _. ment employees and school chil­dren, both of whom were given a holiday for the purpose. If this is true. the thing was badly man­aged. They could have had over a million just as well in govern­ment employes alone. Most of them must have gone fishing or to t1te ball game. Federal Control Means All-Out Slavery For American Citizens White House Is Honored By Distinguished Visitor The President of the U n i t e d One of the most dangerous ideas ~~a:~:eii~~r:~~~~~;~~~t.e~nbJ' ;oe;~l~ i~ "Federal Aid" is the reha.bilita- ty is often represented by kings and t10n and redevelopment of blighted queens who are guests at the White residential areas, says W. M. Four- House. aker of Dallas in a communication .. However, it is seldom that the to a local paper there. head of any State is so signally The official taking by force or a man's home for private use or profit is as unconstitutional as de­priving him of his money at gun­point, Mr. Fouraker charges. Any­one vested with the power to fix and force a liv1ng standard is a dictator and no man or his home is safe, he claims. "The Federal government with our money now owns about one­fourth the value of the whole coun­try," Mr. Fouraker declared. "They take so much of our money by con­fiscatory taxation that we haven't enough left for our local operations and improvements. So we grateful­ly accept a small percentage of it back for specific projects. This re­fund is called Federal Aid and re­sults in Federal control of the sub­ject matter for which the refund was made. "This is the method mostly used to get control of every phase of our private lives. When that point is reached, we are in all-out slavery." honored as was Mr. Eisenhower recently when a visitor of great renown condescended to pay a visit to the mansion on Pennsylvania Avenue. The President's caller was Daisy Bates of Arkansas. Daisy journeyed to Washington to thank the President for his part in the Siege of Little Rock. Daisy is understandably very grateful to him for having authorized the ex­penditure of $410,333.33 per Negro for the nine colored students she was able to entice into crashing Central Hi~h School in that city last September. The only discouraging feature of the visit was that Daisy didn't get the publicity she has grown to ex­pect. The regular press shied away from the incident like a country colt passing a switch engine, prob­ably on request of the White House press staff. However, a Communist paper published in New York played up the event for all it was worth and carried Daisy's picture glaring from its pages as if daring anybody to deny that she was just as good as the white folks. Vas+ Building To House International Socialist Propaganda Organizations A religious Tower of Babel and luxurious center for International propaganda for racial mixing and One-World government was in­sured recently when ground was broken in New York for a "United Nations of Christianity" building. The building will be nineteen stories high, will cost twenty mil4 lion dollars and will serve as head~ quarters for religious organizations "whose activities cover the globe," according to a United Press release. Situated near Columbia Univer­sity, Union Theological Seminary and International House this. "re­ligious center" will be connected by an underground tunnel with Riv­erside Church whose pastor, Harry Emerson Fosdick, is on record for his notorious assertion: "Of course I do not believe in the Virgin Birth or in that old-fashioned"' substitu­tionary doctrine of the Atonement; and I do not know any intelligent Minister who does." Since the land for the project is being donated by John D. Rocke­feller, the Center is widely regard­ed as the supreme effort of the Rockefellers to set up a world-wide Just Another Good Man Gone Wrong There is constant insinuation from persons in Washington-some of them responsible citizens-that Richard Nixon is really a Conserva­tive and that, in his heart, he is at odds with the views ot Eisenhower, Sherman Adams and other Inter­national Socialists in the White House and that, when the time comes, he will emerge again as the Conservative he once was. This. we refuse to accept or be­lieve. We think that the Vice Presi~ dent has been thoroughly brain­washed and that, being younger, he is a more formidable interna­tionalist than even the President. Also his behavior in racial matters does not reflect the views of any responsible Conservative that we know ~nything about. In our book, Mr. Richard Mit­hous Nixon is just another good man gone wrong and we blame Modern Republicanism for his downfall. political-religious machine whose Episcopal Church, and simi 1 a r fs~:ctive is Internatiqnal Social- gr~u=~t the only activities which Among the many tenants of the won't be carried on in the new cen4 building will be the World Council ter are those relating to religious of Churches, the African Methodist and spiritual programs. International Communism's In~ fluence in the matter ot racial pol­icies which has been strong in many different religious denomina­tions for some years, was heavily in evidence at the General Assem­bly of the U n i t e d Presbyterian Church of the USA in its sessions at Pittsburgh recently. Not content to wait until inte­gration becomes an issue in the various communities in which the denomination maintains churches, officials attending the sessions pro­posed that the issue be stirred up. Complaining that in most neigh~ borhoods where White Presbyte­rian churches are located there are no Negroes, the Rev. Howard B. Sissel, associate director of the de­nomination's social and education department proposed that a move­ment be started by the church to get colored people moved into s;uch neighborhoods in order that church­es may be integrated. "Our churches seem more to re­flect than to influence the racial attitudes and behavior patterns of their communities," the Rev. Sissel told the final session. We have always maintained that there was no "Negro problem" ex­cept where one was artificially cre­ated and this good Man of the Cloth bears us out. There is no racial problem in communities where White people live to themselves and Negroes do likewise, so the Rev. Mr. Sissel pro­poses to create one by moving Negroes into White neighborhoods, so exponents of the Social Gospel can integrate their churches. It has long been known that money talks but never has it been more forcefu1ly demonstrated than in the spending of billions of dol­lars by mongrelization propagan­dists to influence the thinking of the nation•s ministers on the sub­ject. Making Evil Appear As Good Is Basis Of Atheistic Philosophy We are deeply impressed with the viewpoint of a good friend in Indiana who is an intellectual in the finest meaning of the term. After observing closely and listen­ing carefully to the perverted phi­losophy of Ministers of the Social Gospel in many sections of the country, she says these misguided men are trying to perform an im­pos! tible miracle. They are, she declares, trying to turn evil into good-not to make bad men and bad women into good men and good women but to make evil itself appear good. Their goal, she believes, is to re":erse the age-old concept of mo~ rahty and to force the American people to accept practices which are vile as procedure which is right. .She fears they will accomplish thas unholy objective unless there is a general awakening on the part of the Christian citizenship in the American Republic and the influ­ence of atheistic Communism on the American pulpit is broken. June, 1958 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Pege 7 "The South Will Maintain Its Identity and Its Way of Life" Blossom Blames Everybody But Himself In L. R. School Fracas Although the Confederacy suf­fered military defeat, the Hght for States Rights was not a "Lost Cause" since a fight for principles is never lost, Senator Strom Thur­mond told a large gathering in his native South Carolina on Memorial Day. The heroic struggle of Southern­ers has left the South's sense of separate identity, its unity and its solidarity stronger than ever and the cause which Confederate sol­diers upheld is still a living cause today, Senator Thurmond declared. "Local self-government in the sense of complete national inde­pendence may no longer be an is­sue, but local self-government in the form of States' Rights definite­ly is an issue and those who battle for States' Rights today are waging a fight for governmental principles which are founded on the bedrock of the Constitution," the Senator told his audience to deafening ap­plause. He warned that individual liberty and the right of self-government are in grave danger in the United States today and the essential foundations of Constitutional Gov­ernment have been perilously weak­ened by relentless Federal en­croachment. He pointed out in no uncertain · terms that "no matter what changes our form of government may undergo, the South is going to -maintain its identity and the dis­tinctive valu~s of its way of life." Senate Roll of Honor On Foreign Aid Vote We nominate for the honor roll those seventeen members of the United States Senate who, on June 6, refused to support the diabolic foreign aid bill which is nothing more than legalized larceny com­mited against the American peoole for the benefit of foreign countries, includirig Communist Poland. Yu­goslavia and pro-Communist India: Alan Bible of Nevada; Dennis Chavez, New Hexico: Carl T. Cur­tis, Nebraska: Henry C. Dworshak, Idaho: Allen J. Ellender. Louisiana; Sam J. Erwin, Jr., North CC~rotina; Barry Goldwate r, Arizona; Willam E. Jenner, Indiana; B. Everett Jor­dan, North Carolina William Lan­ger, North Dakota: George W. Ma­lone, Nevada; Richard B. Rusself, Georgia; John Stennis, Mississippi; Herman E. Talmadge, Georgia; Strom Thurmond, South Carolina; John J. Williams, Delaware; Milton R. Young, North Dakota. Twenty-eight members of the Senate were absent on official busi­ness and did not vote. If they had been present, the following would have voted against the bill accord­ing to the Record: Eastland of Mis­sissippi; Kerr, Oklahoma; Long, Louisiana; McLellan, Arkansas; Byrd, Virginia; Johnston, South Carolina; O'Mahoney, Wyoming; Frear, Delaware; Barrett, Wyo­ming; Schoeppel, Kansas and Hrus­ka of Nebraska. The following members of the Senate put the welfare of foreign Internationalization of Panama Canal Is Next On U.N. Agenda While we have been meddling in the affairs of foreign countries and ~rying to run the world, Commu­nists have been active in Panama where anti-American demonstra­tions have been staged. Well-informed circles in Wash­ington report that these demonstra­tions are a prelude to a demand in the United Nations for the Inter­nationalization of the Panama Canal, an important step towards One-World Government. The United States acquired a permanent lease on the Canal Zone through treaty with France in 1903 and American taxpayers have an equity of many millions of dollars in the Canal which was built in the interest of American defense. The United Nations is an Inter­national Communist organization and property rights have no place in U.N. policies. For more than a year, Communists in the U.N. have been promoting the International­ization of the Canal. Arkady A. Sobolov was the first to express the hope that this step would be taken and Communist demonstra­tions in the Canal Zone indicate that machinery for bringing about the Internationalization of the Canal has been put in motion. There is a resolution before Con­gress calling for the reassertion of American sovereignty in the Zone under authority of the 190:l trPaty. The resolution was introduced by Daniel J. Flood of Penn""lvania, but nothing has been done about it. The fact is that we are so busy meddling in the MiddlP East and considering Summit Co'lferences with the Sov;Pts that WI>: don't have time for such insignificant things as the defense of the United States, and Cnnere~sman Flood's resolu­tion will nro..,ably'lie right there in a ni2eon hole until Congress has adiourned and its members have gone back home to tell their con­stituents why they should be re­elected. countries above that of their own and voted against the interests of the American Republic by support­in,~! the nefarious "Foreign Aid Bill": Aiken, ABott, Anderson, Beall, Bennett, Bridges, Bush, Cape­hart, Carlson, Carroll, Case, New Jersey; Case, South Dakota, Church, Clark, Cooper, Dirksen, Douglas, Fulbright, Gore, Green, Hayden, Hennings, Hickenlooper, Hill, Humohrey, Jackson, Javits, Johnson of Texas, Kefauver, Ken­nedy, Knowland, Kuchel, Lauche, Martin of Iowa, McNamara, Mon­roney, Morse, Morton, Mundt, Neu­berger, Payne, Proxmire, Purtell, Smathers, Smith of Maine, Smith of New Jersey.

The Bigger The Red The More Certain The Award Recently we received this com­ment from a woman subscriber in Baltimore: "Your paper is so won­derful and you do so much good for your country that I am sure the people of your city and State are very proud to do you honor." Well, we can't exactly claim that we have to be constantly dodging in order to keep from getting hit by a flying tribute. But we do have a profound respect for ourself and feel that we are in good standing with right-thinkinf!: Americans in our own city and State as well as in others where our small sphere of influence extends. The thousands of letters we get annually from all over the country are encouraging although on rare occasions we get a communication, usually unsigned, in which we are called a reactionary, a Fascist and a hate-monger. ln this tyne of work you have to expect to r01l with the punches, so we don't let the ex­tremely rare brickbats heaved our way disturb us. And if we ever get too discour­aged and feel that we are getting nowhere, we will ,go out and pick a Jimson weed, f asten it on our lapel with a ~qfPty-_oin ~nd pretend it is an award of merit for services rendered. At that. we would be the recio­ient of a f?r greater honor than is accorded those who get a Nohel or Pulitzer Prize both of which are almost without exception awarded to Reds who are out to destroy the American f o r m of government rather than to those who would preserve it It's Smoke Signals For Us After August I st We are thinking seriously of using smoke signals to communi­cate with our friends after August first when the administration's lat­est contribution to inflation goes into effect in the form of four-cent stamps on letters. When it was found that the postal department was operating in the red, the common sense thing would have been to cut down on expenses but this, of course, was the reason why that wasn't done. Common sense procedure is taboo in Washington. We have not found out yet what the increased cost of mailing our paper is going to be when the post­age on third class matter is upped next January but we'll bet a forty­cent dollar that pink publications will be provided with some loop­hole so that only patriotic papers will feel the pinch. We don't know what the gim~ mick will be but we confidently believe that Liberals in Congress are not above slipping a joker in the bill raising postal rates which Testifying before a Federal Court in Little Rock in behalf of a peti~ tion by the local school board for a postponement of integration in that city, school superintendent Vrigil Blossom laid the blame for the fiasco there everywhere except where it belonged. Blossom, who is believed by many to have connived with inte­gationists for mixing the races in the Little Rock High School last September, put the blame first on Governor Orval Faubus for the widespread opposition which de­veloped when nine Negroes were entered in the school at the begin­ning of the term. Later he blamed it on Governor Marvin Griffin of Georgia who had made a speech in Little Rock and which Blossom claimed ''had more to do with strengthening opposi­tion than anything that hapoened." Still later he added editor Roy V. Harris of a Georgia newspaper as also entitled to the blame because of strong anti-segregation editori­als in his oublication and because the Georgia newsman also visite~ Little Rock. The school superinten,T~nt of Little Rock is wrong on all counts. The blame for the opposition to mom~relization of the r?ces in Little Rock or anywhere else in the South lies with the decent element of citizenship who naturally oppose this immoral and indefensible prac­tice and who are going to continue to oppose it. Certain persons and publications may express the sentiment of the P.e?ple on the subject but the oppo­SitiOn comes from deep within the hearts of all good citizens of the South who simply are not going to have their way of life perverted by Communist agitators in Moscow and in the United States. We Shudder To Think Who The "Best Minds" Would Be ,_ The Deseret News of Salt Lake City wants a "Peace Commission" of laymen appointed which would be composed of "the best minds in the country." This "Peace Commission" would make suggestions for revising our foreign policy and our relations with other nations and the net re­sult would be, in the Deseret News• o p i n i o n, peace throughout the world. When we consider that the Pres­ident would have to appoint this "Peace Commission" and in view of those he would probably select as the "best minds in the country" we think we would do well to blunder along with the. "worst minds in the country" doing the honors until such time as the American people recapture the Re­public, and peace is restored by the ..., simple expedient of keeping hands off of the affairs of foreign nations. will exempt certain publications from paying the increased cost. If anyone thinks we are just naturally suspicious of politicians -they are right.

The course will last seven weeks and during that period no student may speak anything but · Russian both on and off the campus. It is not clear from the news re~ lease concerning it whether this is another way of expressing "Human Brotherhood" or whether it's a new type of punishment for juvenile de­linquency. We assume that during this period the students will be restrict­ed to a diet of caviar and vodka and will be allowed to play no games except Russian roulette. Might as well do the job up right. At that, mastery of this language may come in handy, if we keep on making concessions to the Soviets. These youngsters may be able to Use it to talk their way out of a concentration camp. More Truth Than Poetry THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Juno, 1958 Information On Bill of Rights Is Lawmakers Increase I Their Pace Around Held As Of No Educational V a ue The Cocktail Circuit The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons is an organ­ization composed of a group of outstanding medical men of the nation who are gravely concerned in the future of the Republic. Among their objectives is the dissemination of literature in opposi­tion to Socialism not only in the medical profession but in all areas of human activity in the United States. They have carried on an effective campaign to acquaint the sc~ool children of the nation with the superior advantages of the Amencan free enterprise system and have sought to impress them with the high degree of human freedom granted them under the American Constitu­tion and the Bill of Rights. Opposition to the Socialization of medicine has been only one of the valuable services rendered by this great organ· ization. Like all non·profit organizations whose activities are educa~i1:mal and devoted to the public good, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons rightly felt that they were entitled to tax·exemption gran~· ed liberal groups in order that they might more effectively carry on thetr program. But when they applied for this exemption they ran into a snag in the form of one Russell C. Harrington, Commissioner of Internal Revenue whose remarkable interpretation of the rules granting such exemption places the Department of Internal Revenue indirectly behind those V(ho advocate Socialism and against those who seek the return of Constitu­tional Government in the United States. If we had not seen Commissioner Harnngton's letter of refusal, we would find it difficult to believe that such an oblique defense of Socialism 3nd repudiation of Americanism would be committed to writing by an official of the American govern~ ment. Lately we have seen several references in various publications concerning the increasing number of cocktail parties in Washington attended by the statesmen who make the laws under which we of the hinterland must live •. It seems that as the affairs of the world become more involved, chaotic and confused, the consump· tion of liquor in the national cap· ita! is increased accordingly, and the spectacle of a solon bending an elbow before the private bar of a Washington hostess as he dis­cusses the State of the Union is a familiar sight. We have always maintained that the private morals of a representa~ tive of the people are not too im· portant. It's his political morals which are fearful and disturbing. He can guzzle liquor half the night, chase blondes the other halt and grow a little marijuana in his basement on the side without in· volving the safety and security of the Republic so long as he has a clear head, thinks straight and votes right when he appears on the floor of the Senate or House. Commissioner Harrington wrote: "Opposing Socialization of the merlical or other segment of the economy or supporting the princip_Ies of individual liberty and freedom of individuals in the medical professiOn ne~e~~0~rff~:n~s i~s ~o~~~s\s, Ten- 1 ~~e~~~c:~e;r~e t~~t~~~sr~:i~~~it~r:n~~~"J~;;~::0~f ~~e t~~i~~i~~~;a;ne~n~Ia~~J A li~tle boy badly wanted $10.0 ~fo~~~ 7~~~N~~~i~~ ~~~~~i~~~~g·h·t~naJey~~\~~ ~~~~~~~~fed r~re~~~~~f:~ ~~ ~i~~ded to pray God to send tt from Federal income tax ...

When postal authorities received the letter they forwarded it to the President of the United States. When the President read the let­ter he chuckled and told his secre· tary to send the boy a check for five dollars as that would seem like a lot of money to a youngster. When the boy received the -check he wrote a letter of thanks to God and added: "I notice you routed your letter through Washington and, as usual, those crooks deduct· ed 95 per cent." uThe South won't admit Negro children to its schools, but they will give. the Negro his own schools, manned by teachers of his own race and all of this is given to ltim without cost. Giving the Negro his own school and teachers is more in keeping with 'that con­cept of freedom, justice and equal opportunity that the founders had in mind than in an integrated system· of education."- The Tele­gram, Negro newspaper of New~ ark, N.J. In East Be1·lin, the German Communist regime recently set up a bureau whose announced pur~ pose was to simplify bureaucracy. The name of this new bureau that was set up was "The Cent1·al Oper­ational Staff for the Organization of the Carrying out of the Law on the Perfection and Simplifica­tion of the Workings of the State Apparatus in the German Demo­cratic Republic." "The Internal Revenue Service takes the position that an organiza­tion which advances preconceived opinions about curr~nt problems .with a view to creating public sentiment favorable thereto lS not educah?nal within the meaning of . .. the code unless the methods used are stnctly educ~tional," Mr. Harrington continued. Hin furthering its objectives there must be a fair and full presentation of all pertinent facts and information upon which it bases its opinion whereby the public may reach independent conclusions .•. '' Accordingly, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons is not going to get tax exemption in order to fight Socialism. There are hundreds of organizations who do enjoy this tax.exempt privilege from the Department, but we will mention only the most notorious one. The Ford Fund for the Republic, openly committed to National and International Socialism, is able to save millions of dollars through tax­exemption privileges granted it by the Department of Internal Revenue. We challenge Mr. Harrington to tell the American people that this Fund for the Republic qualifies for tax·exemption under his own defini­tion. In furthering its objectives does the Fund for the Republic make a "fair and full presentation of all pertinent facts and information upon which it bases its opinion" and allow the public to reach "independent conclusions," or does it flood the channels of communication ir: this country with millions of dollars worth of Marxist propaganda designed and in"tended to establish a Socialist Welfare State in the American Republic? ' We charge that a truthful and factual answer to this question by the Commissioner of Internal Revenue will officially commit his Depart­ment to partiality to Socialism and open opposition to the principles of Americanism. Meantiriie, the American people who !ire concerned f~r. the f~tl!re of the Republic should ponder long and senously on the offiCial posihon of a department of government which holds that the dissemination of information concerning the American free enterprise system, the Con­stitution and the Bill of Rights is of no educational benefit or value to America's citizens of tomorrow. We can wish that our national officials were more circumspect in their private conduct but there is nothing we can do about it; it's not our business. We have the right, however, to demand that their behavior while carrying out their official duties be above reproach and that, while on the job, they quit performing like drunken sailors on shore leave and start making like responsible rep­resentatives of the s o v e r e i g n people. One of the silly arguments ad­vanced by pro-Foreign Aid spend~ ers is that we must continue to pour mOney into fore~gn countries because Russia is offering to do this same thing. That's a joke. While the Soviets publicly offer to extend foreign aid, it is largely bluff and come-on intended to speed up American spending. There is no way, of course, to know the amount of money Russia has given away to other countrie& while we were handing out bil­lions of dollars, but the chances are that the whole amount that the Soviets have coughed up for that purpose could be put in your eye. They are too smart to engage From July 1, 1956 to June 30, 1957, $2,252,112,000.00 was taken from the pockets of American tax­payers by Congress and given to the Communist nations of Albania, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Soviet Union and Yugoslavia.

Isn't there some­thing useful and constructive you could do instead of sending out all that silly stuff you write"? Well, perhaps so. We have often thought of giving up the paper and taking up skin-diving. There was an amusing sign which was attached to the license plate of a Texas motorist driving in Washington, D. C., and which read: "Ben Hogan for President. If we must have a golfer, at least let's have a good one."
