Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 9 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, MARCH, 1958 No. l The 'Bi-Partisan' Campaign for Foreign Aid Means Both Parties Favor Robbing Taxpayers We C an Stop, Worrying Now For Peace Is J ust Around The Corner The American State Department sends out unnumbered tons of lit­erature although the exact amount il probably "top secret'' and not available to the average peon. If the hard-working taxpayers could see some of the material that emanates from this agency and realized that it is their money which pays for it, they would froth at the mouth and demand an in-vestigation. • But they don't see it. However, that Department oc­casionally sends something out of great value and which may eventu­a lly prove helpful in winning the cold war. Such a service was rendered by the Department in January when their regular Nato Letter was placed in the mails. This 28-page document empha­sizing the glories of One-World Government where everybody will drink through the same quill gave the clincher on page 19 of that same document when it disclosed at least one outstanding achieve-ment of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in its long and pains­taking search for universal peace and world understanding. • They have issued a NATO Cook­book! In this priceless volume will ap­pear the instructions for concoct­ing the national dishes of all the member nations of the group and which were contributed by the wives of the delegates from differ­ent countries. The book will sell for $4 and as an added inducement the purchaser will be let in on the favorite dishes of Queen Juliana of Holland, King P aul of Greece and President Dwight D. Eisen­hower of the United States. We can't wait! However, we are sorry that the contribution of recipes was re­stricted to those on the NATO pay­roll for we feel that we could have aided materially in hastening world understanding by giving them our recipe for corn pone, hog jowl and turnip greens. A United Nations' Discovery May Change The Course Of History The Unite d Nations has just issued the most world-sha ttering and important announcement ~i n ce it was set up in 1945, and one which will perhaps play a monu­mental part in changing the his­tory of the world. On March 5, Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold o! that One­World, peace-making organization gave out the information to the people of the member nations that husbands around over the world are now washing the dishes, peel~ ing: the potatoes and changing the baby's diapers. This data was made available to the world after a lengthy survey made by women's organizations connected with the U.N. who were curious to know what part, if any\ is played by men in the operation of modern homes. A special session of the 11Com­rnission on the Status of Women" An Associated Press release from Moscow says that the Soviets refer to rock 'n roll tJ1.USic as uhideous" although the State Department has been assuring u.s right along that we were winning the cold war by sending Negro rock 'n roll musicians behind the Iron Curtain at enormous costs to American taxpayers. of the U.N. will be held in Geneva from March 17 to April4 to further study the subject and find out the actual number of males who are sufficiently "house-broke" to ac­cept K.P. duty in their own home. We always knew that the United Nations was someday going to just­Hy itself and prove that it was worth all the millions of dollars which have been emptied out of American pockets and channelled into its treasury. Now they have done it. T ~e right of every human being to earn, to own and to keep the fruits of his toil is a divine one and nowhere in the organic law of th is Republic is there any vestige of authority for Congress to seize the assets of the citizen and convey them to aliens across the ocean. By insisting on continued foreign aid spending, the President is reverting to the practices of William the Conqueror who kept a Doomsday Book in wliich he forced his subjects to list their holdings in orcler that he might appropriate such of their possessio,;s as he desired and re-distribute .them according to the will of the Crown. Under our form of gover11ment, it is morally the prime responsibility of members of the Houso and Senate to protect the prop· erty of American citizens from unlawful seizure and those who vote to confisc.-,te billions of dollars from tax• payers and donate this money to the people of a foreign State, are guilty of dis\oyalty to the Americ.an people and of repudiating their sworn obligation to uphold Constitutional Government in the United States. The widely bal1y hooed bi-partisan campaign to p romote for eign aid spending launched in Washington on.Febr uary 25 was "bi-partisan" only to the extent that half of those heading it are in office and want 1 to hal]g on and the other half are on the outside itching to get back in. It was the greatest massed assault against private property rights in history and the only one in which heads and former heads of State have ever officially taken part. rt was an occasion where Modern Republicans and Fair Deal Democrats were willing to declare a truce in their war against each other and gang up in the interest of their common objective of impoverishing the nation's taxpayers and deplet4 ing the Federal treasury. . Somehow, they seem to have the idea that there is some special form of glory awaiting those who can think up the most idiotic ways to squander the greatest amount of public monies in a given period of time. Speakers were Eisenhower and Truman; Nixon and Acheson and DullEs and Stevenson-men who fairly hate each other personally, but who are held together by their mutual desire to see American sovereign­ty dissolved and the United States plunged into One-World Government ·and who apparently believe that the quickest way to achieve this end is to liquidate the holdings of American taxpayers and force insolvency on the Federal government. Bolstering the above' political figures in the great crusade to enroll grass roots opinion behind foreign aid spending were hundreds of slick, suave and high-powered promoters and pressure boys from the organ~ ized segment of labor, education, religion and minority groups cele~ brated for their ability in fund-raising tactics but who actually know only one way to get money and that is to sweet-talk it out of those who earn it. They are also noted as psychological propangandists dedicated to the s~cred theory that anything that works is a failure and that every4 thing must be changed from what it is to what social planners think lt should be. Expressed another way. they are the exclusive consumers of the human race, barnacles on the Ship of State and a fungus growth on civilized society. Their sole equipment consists of over-worked tongues and under-developed brains but they are past grand masters in the fine art of supervising the nation's political, social and economic destiny and acknowledged experts in directing the expenditure of other peoples' money. Taking part in the Washington clam-bake were representatives of the National Education Association, National Council of Churches, Americans for Democratic Action, CIO-AFL, National Association for (Continued on Page 2} Millions of Americans lhink It-The Southern Conservative Says It Page2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE March, 1958 DAR President Gives The Recommended Reading For flacts In Frank Discussion Modem Republicans ''We have seen the American cause betrayed by Communists in our midst aided and abetted by 'Liberals' and collectivists who combine in a pattern !or world-wide revolution," Mrs. Frederick Groves, National president c! DAR told a meeting of 500 mem­bers of that organization at the Hilton Hotel in San Antonio February 19. "We m3de possible the surrender to the Soviets of the Republic of China and part of Indo-China, thus deliver­jog into their hands 600,000,000 peo­ple," this grand American patriot ad­ded. After explaining how foreign aid money has been spent for dress suits for Grecian undertakers, public baths for Egyptian camel drivers and in sending shiploads of machinery to rust and fall apart on the docks of alien countries, Mrs. Groves claimed also t~a t the religious basis of our civil­ization is under fire in the class room. She urged that adults assume re­sponsibility for imparting a love of country and liberty in the minds of youth in order that the pre~ious leg­acy of our fathers may be preserved. Before this country abandoned Constitutional Government and went internationalist the follow­ing plank was an integral part of Republican Party platforms: "The Republican Party has al­W3ys bee::n the staunch supporter cf the American system of a pro­tective tariff. It believes that the home marke~. built up under that policy, the greatest, and richest market in the world, be1ongs first to Amencan agriculture, industry and labor. No pretext can justify the surrender of that market to such competition as would destroy our farms, mines and factories, and lower the standard of living which we have established for our work­ers". We offer this as recommended reading for all so-called Republi­cans in Congress who intend to vote for an extension of the ar­rangement which places the power to regulate American tarrif af­fairs with a gang of International­ists and One-Worlders in Geneva. Freedom Belongs Only To Those Who Will Fight To Protect It Vida, Montana, is a small village and its area would cover only a few · blocks of space required for the aver­age large city but there is a ·strong spirit of Americanism in that small Montan3 town which is heartening. 1f a comparable attitude prevailed in New York, Chicago, LoS> Angeles, Philadelphia and other metropolitan centers where subversives are thickly clustered. the battle against Commun-ism would be won. Fighting against heavy odds in a State heavily dominated by union la­bor, the Farmers Anti-Communist Club of Vida is carrying on a cam­paign against Communist infiltration of our institutions which is attrading wides.pread attention not only in Mon­tana but beyond the borders of th~ State. "A Message to Americans" prepared by the Vida Farmers Anti-Communist Club of which Vern L. Vine is Presi­dent and Arthur Sorley is Secretary has been run as a paid ad by the Club in various papers. We are reproduc­ing it as a tribute to that organization as we do not accept ads and if we did, we would not have the heart to charge for such a fine document pro~laiming the principles of Americanism: It is your duty and responsibility to know and understand what is ihappening to your country. You r e pre sen t your loved ones as trustee. You are custodian of free­dom, Liberty and-- Justice as laid down in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. How many people do you represent? As the head of the fam­ily, can you look your loved ones in the eye and honestly say that you have represented them in protect­ing their most valued heritage? Have you treasured Our American Way of Life as laid down by our founding fathers in the Constitution and Bill of Rights? What would your defense be if your son were to say to you, "But Father, you were born free, and I was born part slave?" Do you think that you have been worthy of the trust that has been pla~ed upon you? Freedom shall be­long to those men and women who will fight to protect it. Do you real­ize that socialism is almost upon us, that communism infiltrates gov­ernment, colleges, religious groups, unions, the pres!, radio, the movie industry, and television? Do you realize that the One Worlders are trying to make us a part of a One-World Government? Do you \Vant your sons and daugh­ters represented and governed by One-World philosophies? Are you ready to give up all the wonders of this great land and go back one hundred years in ~n effort to build a World Brotherhood with millions of people who resent our way of life, and resent our interference in their way of life? Do you realize that 36 pet. of your earnings go to government in taxes?_ Millions of men and women tlave to join unions in order to work (this is a violation of their consti­tutional rights.) Freedom-loving men and women who live on farms must now report and become a part of social se~urity. The government ·is suing over two hundred farmers for growing too much wheat. Farm subsidies, Fed­eral Aid to Education, and Federal Housing ar~ all a form of regimen­tation. Social Security, pension plans, or any other type of govern­ment handout is another type of control. We could write volumes on what has happened to our Amer­ica, but the people will not listen. A good American immediately be­comes a crackpot, he is ridiculed, laughed al and stands a <.1hance of losing his position in business and the re.. s pect of his friends and asso­ciates. Why do people who do not have the courage to stand up and be counted, oppose those who do possess the courage? These obstruc­tionists constitute a fifth column working on the side o! the enemy. Bi .. Partisan Campaign- !Continued from Page I) the Advancement of Colored Peonle, Committee for an Effective Con­gress and scores of other off-beit cliques whose combined record of participation in anything remotely smacking of Americanism could be written on the back of a one-cent postage stamp. About the only group which had no representation at the festivi~ ties was the great body of working, sweating and harried taxpayers who must dig down in their jeans and put up the money to pay the cost of whatever fantastic squander program these glorified con men are able to force through the present session of Congress. It was notable that not even by inference was any reference made by any speaker at the Washington conclave to the Constitution of the United States nor any attempt made to show justification or authority in basic law for the Congress to rob the people of this country to enrich tliose of foreign lands, or to render their own nation weak in order that alien States might be made strong. There is, of course, no Coh~ stitutional authority for our elected representatives to extort money or anything else of value from an American citizen and give it to the government of· :mother country. meet%~t7~r a';;:!.i~e~e q~:~ti~t~e;/0tp:~~:;tb~e3 'i:!~~~:!o~i;lic~~of! nation-wide television program on the Sunday preceding the Washing­ton gathering at which time the movie czar, Eric Johnston, set him .. self up to inform the nation's youth concerning foreign aid. On that occasion, this teen-age girl might be said to have made a sap out of Johnston except that nature had already beaten her to it. "What is going to happen to American financicfl and economic stability'' the young lady demanded of Hollywood's prize dim-wft "when we ha~e to enlarge our own debt and increase our Own deficit in order to guarantee financial and economic stability to other nations of the world?" If there had been space enough for it to land, this disconcerting qu€stion would have hit the master of ceremonies right squarely be~ tween the eyes hut, as it was, he mouthed a few inanities about "eco­nomic world stability" and hastily changed the subject. The question innocently asked by this wide-eyed youngster remains unanswered and we submit that her query makes more sense than all the blather and b3loney indulged in by all the international gyp artists and global chiselers at the Washington blow-out put together. At this point it seems proper to warn the American people that during the next few weeks when this gang of professional hired opin­ion- moulders square off and go into action, the American public is go­ing to have their brains washed like a pair of dirty socks. From the forum, the pulpit, civic groups, over television, radio and in the irresponsible segment of the press, the merits of foreign aid wi1l be thundered forth in stentorian tones and so overwhelming will be the deluge of propaganda that only the resolute, the stout­hearted and the patriotic American will be able to withstand it. Sadly enough, there will be no effective comeback on the part of the great bulk of our population who have the greatest equity in the subject, because they are not organized. Also, they can't fight the wealth of the huge tax-exempt Founda~ tions or the Federal treasury for, regardless of all claims that the Foreign Aid campaign is a spontaneous movement by private individ­uals, the finances which will make it go and the influence which will give it prestige emanate from such sources as Rockefeller, Ford and Federal government agencies. The preachers, educators, movie moguls, social scientists and other characters who carry the banner and wave the flag are merely window dressing. In our opinion, there is one way, and only one way, in which thif vast give-away program can be defeated and it would be com~ paratively simple involving quick action by only a few right-thinking Americans determined to preserve the Republic. There are about five hundred extremely wealthy men scattered around over the nation who furnish the major part of the money for the campaign chests of candidates for high office. If these rich men would concentrate on the Senate and direct their fire on that body, they could get the job done. There is no use to waste time on the House because the majority of representatives in the Lower Hous~ of Congress are as wild as a bull moose in mating season and they had as well be marked off as hopeless. These wealthy men could contact the two senators from their own State and let them know in no uncertain terms that they want their tax money to remain in the United States and that they no longer propose to finance the economic, military or social projects of alien peoples. They could inform these senators that if they continue to vote for a give-away program which is detrimental to the interests of the United States. they can, when the next election rolls around, go out and scratch with the chickens for their own campaign funds. Ot~r august statesmen may know little or nothing about American govermng proces~es and may have. little concern in perpetuating the American Republic but .you can bet your bottom dollar that they are concerned in perpetuatmg 'their own political fortunes and that any threat of having .the sources of their personal campaign funds dried up would constitute a language which they could all understand. The only other alternative is that nobody do anything and that the American taxpayers remain silent on the theory that lowly beggars at the bgttom of the economic ladder may not ques.tion the divine right of lordly bureaucrats on the top rung to rob them of their substance and re-distribute it "according to the will of the Crown." March, 1958 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 3 Nixon Gives Senators The Bum's Rush You Can Lead A Horse To Water In Pushing Through Confirmations But You Can't Make Him Drink When the confirmation of the members of the President's Com­mission on Civil Rights came be­fore the Senate on March 4, it was disposed of in a few minutes and all of them were confirmed-and by voice vote at that. Ordinarily the confirmation of appointees rates a few minutes dis­cussion and in this case discussion should have been prolonged and thorough but the Vice President had other ideas. He rushed the names through in record time and after reading each name remarked immediately: ''Without objection the nomination is confirmed." Only two members of the Sen­ate had the courage to call his hand co.ncerning his handling of the subJect and to indicate their desire to be recorded as having voted against the confirmation of this Commission. These two senators were the Honohble Herman Talmadge of Georgia and the Honorable Strom Thurmond of South Carolina. Sen­ator Talmadge stated: "Had a vote been taken on the motion to con­firm the Presid~nt's nominees to the Commission on Civil Rights, I would have voted against confir­mation and I wish the record to so show." Se nator Thurmond said: "The Commission is unnecessary and un­wise. I believe that it cannot ac­complish any good and that it may re.sult in great harm. Therefore, I wtsh to be on record as opposing the confirmation of the nomina­tions of the members of the Com­mission." National Economy Seems Slated To Hit The Skids An Associated Press release from Washington on March 10 says that already Congressional leaders are considering a further increase in the national debt limit although it was only recently up­ped f rom $275,000,000,000.00 to $280,000,000,000.00. The reason, we gather from this article, is that our representatives in Washington do not know how to meet inflation, unemployment and the general depression which is practically facing us, except by setting up a costly public works program and the debt ceiling of $280,000.000,000.00 will not take care of this program since Con­gress refuses to cut appropriations to any appreciable extent. All members of the House, of course, come up for re-election in ·No­vember, as well as 32 members of the Senate, and apparently they feel that to cut off any boondog­gling projects in their States and districts would lose votes for them. So they go merrily on voting money for practically any silly project that happens to be sug­gested by wild·eyed planning ex­perts. That is the sorry situation that confronts the Republic and with statesmanship at an all-time low, the national economy_ seems des­tined to hit the skids with no lead­ership available to save it. Aside from the wisdom, or lack of it, in the appointment of such a Commission, is the fact that no notice was apparently taken of the record of two members of the Commission as disclosed in the of­ficial proceedings of a committee of the Congress itself. In Union Calendar 838, Commit­tee on Un-American Activities of the House of Representatives, May 29, 1946, page 6, appears the name of the Institute of International Education, Inc., under the heading of "American Branches of the Communist International.'' Two mem hers of the Civil Rights Commission, whose confir­mation the Vice President, Rich­ard M. Nixon, rushed through the Senate without a record vote, are shown on the literature of the In­stitute of International Education, Inc., as Trustees· of that organiza­tion. They are Dr. John A. Han­nah of Michigan and Dr. Theodore M. Hesburgh of Indiana. Maybe it is all right for these two men to be Trustees of the In­stitute of International Education, Inc., which a committee of Con­gress brands as one of the "Amer­ican Branches of the Communist International." Maybe they are working under cover to expose its activi ties, but unt il this is estab· lished or it is proved that the In­stitute put their names on its liter­ature withou t au thority, we think that any senator · who voted for confirm:1tion of these two men in the face of the record, should be very careful not to condemn any acts of the 's o v i e t against this country in the future. We wonder how many people were thrilled as we were when Senator George W. Malone of Ne· vada cut Ed Murrow down to size on the latte1·'s television program March 2 which consisted of a large chunk of propaganda in be­half of Statehood for Hawaii and Alaska. The Nevada statesman told his interrogator that, while he, Murrow, meant well, he just didn't know what he was talking about as his ideas were formed within the narrow walls of New York skyscrapers cind he had little knowleq:ge of other sections ?f the country. The Nevadan said, m effect, that New York was a menace to the rest of the nation and intimated that, rather than take in Alaska and Hawaii, he would like to get rid of a certain State already in the Union. The urbane. Mr. Murrow then switched to Harry Bridges in Honolulu who has the facial contours of a kan­garoo and the ideological beliefs of a Bolshevik revolutionary and who proceeded to expound his views on annexation which were more in keeping with the objec­tives of ML Murrow's propaganda program. Mr. Roscoe Drummond says in his column that usenator Johnson of Texas is decisively taking him­self out of the race for the Demo­- cratic presidential nomination in 1960." That will be news to most Texans who didn't know he was in it. Thev Catch The Minnows But. Let Whales Get Away All the hullaballoo in Congress and the White House for the resig­nation ol Richard A. Mack as Fed­eral Communications Commission­er and which resulted in his step­ping down and out, would seem to be' a case of straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel. While Mack's handling of his personal finances was ques tion­able to say the least, there was no evidence presented to indicate that he was guilty of malfeasance in connection with his office. We believe there would have been a greater measure of public approval if some of the really big crooks had been dislodged and Congressman Harris of Arkansas is peculiarly fitted to lead a move­ment to force them out. We are thinking particularly of members of the Supreme Court who not only deserve to be im­peached but would have been long ago when they first started their pro-Communist activities to break down the American Constitu t ion , if the corruption and rottenness of political -.morals in other branches of government were not on a par with those prevailing in the judici­ary de-partment. Prince Edward County. Virginia, is one of those involved in the in­famous Supr~me Court decison in 1954 ordering the mixing of the races in public schools. There is still no integration in the Prince Edward County schools and from all indications there is not going to be. It is true that the original de. cision of the Washington Kanga­roo Court has been supplemented by a ruling by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals at Baltimore di­recting Federal District Judge Hutcheson of Richmond, Virginia, to fix a deadline for Prince Ed· w~rd County schools to begin car­rymg out the 1954 public school de-segregation order. Judge Hutcheson so far has not fixed any such date and even if he does, the citizens of Prince Ed~ ward County are prepared for it and they will not integrate their schools. They will close them. Preparations have already been made to instruct white pupils in private buildings such as church­es, fraternal halls, warehou ses and private residences. There are 1,715 Negro school children in that country compared to 1,531 White school children and whether any provision has been made for similar schooling for them is not announced . No State has suffer ed more in­dignity and humiliation than Ar- Meantime, it would be interest­kansas because of the un-Cons ti tu- ing to know whether or not the tiona! behavior of the Court and "Feds" are sharpening up their we hope that, since Congr essman bayonets in prepara tion for an in­Ha r ris is a native of that great vasion of the great co u n t y -of commonwealth, he throws his bar- Prince Edward in the Old Domin­poon into the big ones next time. ion. ---------------- -Bill's Aim Is To Save Us This Must Be "Sharing From The Supreme Court The Wealth"~ ln Reverse In an attempt to halt the Su­preme Court's apparent efforts to deliver this country into the hands of its enemies through one pro­Communist ruling after another, Senator William E. Jenner of In­diana, has introduced Senate bill 2646 in the Senate of the United States. A companion measure, House Resolution 9937 has been intro­duced by Congressman Francis E. Walter of Pennsylvania. These bills would limit the Su­preme Court's jurisdiction and withdraw it from these specific fields: the investigative function of Congress; the security program of the executive branch of the gov­ernment; State anti-subversive legislation; home rule over local schools and admissions of persons to practice law within individual States. All right-thinking Americans want to see this bill passed but we still think that the best way to handle the situation is to impeach every mother's son on the Court who has been guilty of criminal assault on the Constitution of the United States. From a physician in Cleveland, Ohio: "You are a combination of Will Rogers and Westbrook Peg· ler. You m·e a true American with the courage of a lioness." An International News Servi ce press release from New York says that venereal diseases which Were claimed to be almost entirely under control in 1955 have "shot up nation­wide during 1957 for the second year in a row." New York public health experts, the article stated, report 10,000 new cases in that city and that the prob­lem is most sericus among teen-agers and school children. While New York schools have long been "integrated' after a fashion, it is only in the last t)Yo years that the Reds there have really mixed them up thoroughly and the results are not surprising. What informed persons have always known is that there is a heavy inci­dence of venereal diseases among Ne· groes which is di!fieult to overcome as they seldom report it to the author­ities and seem to consider it a normal ccncl.ition. Now that they are using the same facilities as white children in all New York schools, the outcome is logiCal. This was one of the strong argu· men\.3 against integration by those who had no moral convictions on the subject and it should have had weight but apparently didn't. Mmisters of many churches insist· ed ·on integration as a step toward Christian Brotherhood and evidently felt that sharing the Negroes' vener· eal disease was a test o! "brotherly love" to which American white chil· dren should be subjected. Page 4 The Southern Conservative A MONTHLY PUBLICATION OF EDITORIAL OPINION WITH NATIONAL CIRCULATION IDA M.

THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: The powen not delegeted to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited byittotheStates.,ereservedtothe Statesrespectively,ortothepeople. Why Stick Around When There's Nothing To Do? There continues to be a lot of criticism of the President for his innumerable vacations and for his golf playing but we don't under~ stand why. There was a time, under Con­stitutional Government, when the President was the responsible Chief .Executive of the nation and made all important decisions in matters over which the Constitu­tion gave him authority, and un­der those conditions his presence on the job was imperative, but that is not true any more. The. American government has been re-organized on a global basis and the White House is mere­ly a way-station on the inter~ national circuit. Our foreign and domestic policies are first passed on in London, Paris, Moscow and other foreign capitals and trans­mitted to Washington to be car­ried out. The physical presence of the President is not necessary; one-worlders on his advisory staff have everything under control _and the Master Plan operates with pre­cision and efficiency. Meantime, if the President can find relaxatiori and diversion on the golf course why deny him this privilege? Under One-World Government, the functions of a mere head of a particular nation will be negli­gible, if not non-existent, and may­be the President is simply antici­pating the status of future Chief Executives and claiming for him­self some of the idleness and lei­surely hours he knows they will enjoy. All this being true, we can't see where it makes any difference whether the President is in '\\o·psh­ington or off somewhere play:1'l~ golf, ice hockey or squat tag. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Political Psychiatrists Carry On Eternal Propaganda Campaign Time was when the American people regarded mental illness as the tragedy which it was, and is, and dealt with each case as it arose. Each State had its own laws governing the situation and there was no effort to make a Federal case out of the temporary, or permanent, disability of the h_uman mind. But political psychiatrists who have crawled out of the woodwork by the thousands in recent years with the announced determination to supervise the thinking of the human race, have changed all that. They not only demand uniform legislation on the subject which largely givPs them the right to decide who is and who is not mentally de­ranged but they insist that all those who do not accept the political philosophy ·of the head-shrinkers are crazy and should be locked up. So they have instituted an international campaign for the per­petual discussi~n of the question of mental illness and any group of Americans numbering as many as fifty who may assemble together fpr any purpose, are lucky if the subject does not pop up before the session ends. · Perhaps the most tragic aspect of the matter is that the constant agitation of the subject is not confined to adults but young children are the recipients of a heavy barrage of propaganda in this morbid area as political psychiatrists are increasingly invading the school rooms of the nation. We hasten to add that none of this unwholesome activity is in~ dulged in by ethical psychiatrists who confine their service to actually helping to bring aboUt the cure of mentally diseased persons. In prac­tically every case, those who are sent out to direct the thinking of the young and old into what they considet.: the proper channels are con­nected with the World Federation of Mental Health which holds that those who do not subscribe to the principles of a One-World Government are insane and in dire need of psychiatric treatment. Usually, also, these visiting psychiatrists are, or have been, members of subversive groups or organizations. A case in point is that of Houston where Dr. Leo Berman was recently sent to lecture on the subject of Mental Health. He was brought to Houston by the Hogg Foundation for Mental Hygiene of Austin and appeared under the auspices of the Child Study Clinic of the Houston Independent School District and the Baylor University College of Medicine. Obviously, the three reputable groups who brought Dr. Berman to Houston made no investigation of his past affiliations before inviting him to lecture in Houston. His imposing titles probably impressed them to the point where they accepted him at face value. ln •l948, Dr. Leo Berman was a delegate from the United States to the International Congress on Mental Health in London where the decision was officially made that in order to qualify" as a "World Citizen" one must be free of racial prejudice; released from unhealthy family relationships; unrestricted by preconceived notions of morality; unhampered by narrow nationalism; released from parental influences and free from outmoded ideas of loyalty to country or flag. In the Spring Catalogue of the Samuel Adams School for Social Studies, Boston, Massachusetts, 194 7, Dr. Leo Berman is shown as a member of the faculty. The Samuel Adams School for Social Studies was cited by the Attorney General of the United States in 1947 as "an adjunct, in Bos­ton, Massachusetts, of the Colllmunist Party." · We recommend that greater care be exercised by local groups when bringing in outside speakers and especially when such speakers' objectives are to influence the plastic minds of school children. Extension Of Re.ciprocal Trade Act Believe'd Slated For Failure Predicting that extension of the Reciprocal Trade Act as requested by the Eisenhower administration will have hard sledding in Con­gress, the Las Vegas, Nevada, Re­view- Journal of ·February second reminds its readers of the fight which Senator George W. Malone of that State has been making for more than a decade against this device for destroying American in­dustry. Although it was a lone, up-h ill fight on his part years ago, other key Republicans are leading the opposition to the Act and Demo­crats w"'ft o have traditionally formed the bulwark of its support are doubtful of its extension, the Revi~w-Journal says. The publication, which is one of the larger newspapers in Ne~ vada, concludes its editorial com­ments on the subject: Leaders of both parties in the- House, Speaker Sam Ray­burn of Texas and Represent­ative Joseph W. Martin of Ma~achusetts, agree that _ex­tensiOn of the trade act is the most controversial piece of legislation facing Congress this year. The 22-year-old Jaw expires J une 30. Malone has stood alone for these m a n y years and has been castigated by his own colleagues as well as the press. The time is coming, and it may not be many weeks off, when his )one fight will pay off and the American markets will return to the hands of the American people. Every American who has any in­terest in the welfare of his own country will pray that this Nevada newspaper is right and that this anti-American Reciprocal Trade Act fails to get the necessary vote fo~ its extension this time. March, 1958 . New Council President Runs True To Form Anyone who is shocked-and who isn't?-at the pro~Communist position invariably taken on public issues by the National Co unci I ot Churches should consider the record of the new president of the outfit who was elect­ed at their national convention in St. Louis last December. The American Legion's official pub­lication, the Firing Line, d·ated Janu­ary 15bh, 1958, gives a report of the Rev. Edwin T. Dahlberg's activities and affiliations which tells of his ob­jections to defense spending for the protection of this country; favoring Presidential clemency for Communist Earl Browder when the latter was In the Federal penitentiary at Atlanta; a plea for the deportation order of Har~ ry Bridges to be set aside; endorse­ment of official statement that free­dom of worship exists in Communist Yugoslavia; attendance at a conference in Washington in 1949 which resulted in the organization of a Communist Front organization known as the Com­mittee for Peaceful Alternatives to the AUantic ·Pact; signing of an open letter for repeal of the McCarran­Walter Immigration law; signer of a letter to President Eisenhower asking freedom for Morton Soboll, convicted Soviet spy; urging the banning ol all hydrogen bQmb ,tests by the United States government and a member of the Advisory Council of the Fe-llow­thip of Reconciliation which agitates for the release of imprisoned Com· munist P arty leaders convicted under the Smith Act. If there is any A m e r i c an who doubts the pro-Communist attitude of the National Council of Churches, they should study carefully this record ot the Council's President. They should also realize that Dahlberg Is little dif­ferent. in his pro-Communist affilla4 tions, from everyone who has headed the Council from the beginning. The Republic has sustained a loss in the defection of thousands of its ministers to the cause of International Communism which can't be regained until these men of the Cloth are re­converted · to Christianity. The Christian Religion is the back­bone of the American Republic and God speed the day when it is restored in the churches and in the lives of the custodians of these sacred edi­fices. For the fourth time since taking office the President has persuaded Congress to raise the statutory debt ceiling and it is now $280,· 000,000,000. Presumably the ceil­ing will automatically revert to $275,000,000,000 in June, 1959, but of course it won't. By that time, the Internationalists will have some other "emergency" fig· ured out and, instead of being low~ ered, it will in all probability be raised again. Lenin and Marx "planned it that way." Just in case you didn't know it, the American taxpayers are put· ting up $12,345,000.00 for a dis­play at the World's Fair in Brus~ sels next summer. The Commis­sioner General, howev~r, in charge of our "exhibits" has demanded that we dig up $2,054,000 more or risk having to keep the outfit open only eight hours per day. Inci­dentally, our ((exhibits" at the Fair are largely New York the­atrical productions. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Paqe 5 Little Rock School Board Asks Democrats Denouncing Republicans Court To Suspend Integration Order Is Pot Calling The Kettle Black There have been many reports that some members of the -Little Rock School Board were Red in their views and that they had se­cretly approved the integration of the schools although it is claimed they were not prepared for inte­gration to be accomplished in ex­actly the way it came about-by Federal troops jabbing students in the back with bayonets. Large Foundations Are Ahle Republicans Reply To Subvert Entire Nations To Dime-a-Dance All the charges of mismanage­ment and corruption in the ad­ministration of government by Modern Republicans made by Fair Deal Democrats is undoubtedly true and the latter would be ren- At any rate, it now appears that, whatever their views on the sub­ject might formerly have been, members of the Board have re­pented of their sins and are now ready to call it a day. In an official communication to the United States District Court of Arkansas, the Board recently pled that the Court stay an order which allOwed nine Negro students to en­ter previously all-white Central High in Little Rock. According to the petition wide­spread opposition to integration has made conditions at Central High almost unbearable and the School District officials practical­ly were "left standing alone" as the victims of extraordinary op­position to mixing of the races in the public schools.

''Foundations-their Power and Influence," is one of the most at­tractive looking books we have seen in years, but its beauty ends on the outside. Within its pages is the most sor­did story within the possibility of the human mind to imagine. It is the authentic, well-docu­mented story of the large tax-ex­empt Foundations of the United States and brings home to the reader the ruinous power of big money when directed toward evil ends and its profound influence upon public affairs. It tells how the pressure of the Foundations starts at the bottom of the academic ladder in attempts to pervert the institutions of learn­ing which they endow. First they make the grant to en­able a beginner to get a much de­sired doctorate. Later when this same individual becomes a teacher at a modest salary, they follow up with supplemental grants in order that he may do some special form of r esearch and thus become fi­nancially dependent on them. These cases multiply indefinitely until these giant financial octopi have their branches in every uni­versity and college in the land, and it fo llows as night follows day that the ideologies of the Foundations are taught in their r espective fields by those who are recipients of the grants.

That's the political tragedy of our times. The voter who opposes liberal control has no place to go, Truman, the master of political in­vective, hit the GOP where it hurls -the business recession. Eisenhow­er's problem in 1958, and that of all Republicans, remains the same as when t·he GOP went into the White House five years ago: to erase from the public mind the idea that Repub­licanism means hard times. The current recession took real form last November. Its duration to date is fou r months. But Truman's recession in 1949 lasted 15 months. Korean war spending ended' it-just as World War II spending ended the New Deal depression. That's bhe GOP dilemma-how to avoid a war and avoid a depression. None of the thievery, extortion and other murderous activities on the part of labor union goons which is being brought to light by the McLellan Committee should surprise the American people. The skulduggery of the labor union racketeers has been revealed by Westbrook Pegler in his column for more than twenty years a~d the present disclosures are anti­climax. To defeat Nixon or whoever may be put up by Modern Republicans and elect some skate like Steven­son, Kennedy, Williams, Meyner et al would be like rescuing a man from a den of enraged lions and then tossing him into a rattlesnake pit. It's death to the Constitution and to Americanism in either case. There simply cannot be a return to Constitutional Government and preservation of the United States as a free and sovereign Republic if we continue to put in the White House men who have no under­standi. ng of, or sympathy for, the American form of government. We must elect a man as President who is an American, first, last and always and it does not matter what party label he wears. We cherish the hope that Demo­crats will return to sanity and nominate a Conservative candidate and it might be advisable lor a Conservative Republican to be placed on the ticket with him. Since the people, and not Wash­ington politicians, cast the major­ity of ballots, we are sure that such a ticket would win. Mutual Aid Program Is Benefitting Communists And Fellow Travellers Speaking to a group of patriotic societies at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, Hon. Spruille Braden, formerly Ambassador to several Lat­in ·American countries and later as­sistant Secretary of State expressed the conviction that the Mutual Se­curity plan is destroying our religion, our way of life, the Constitution and therefore all decent and moral civil-ization. This is because so-called foreign aid is being employed for the benefit of Communists and fellow travellers, Mr. Braden said, and their aim is to destroy all belief in God : over vast areas of the earth. Deploring the average American's lack of knowledge of the subject, Mr Braden said: "One of the serious aspects of this whole problem is that the Am­erican people cannot possibly read the thousands of pages of Congres-sional hearings, debates and reports. plus analyses by the General Ac­counting Office. Any layman -who tries to determine how much has been spent, and for what, soon finds himself lost in a maze of in­comprehensible figures.

Instead, under the so-called bi­partisan policy, they are flooded with an intensive propaganda, cost­ing many millions of dollars of their own money, put out by ICA, and its equally extravagant and useless twin bureaucracy, the United States Information Agency (USIA).

Maybe they're right but forty years is a long ttme and the Rus­sian people have been in slavery that long and if the spirit of free­dom still burns in their hearts, after forty years of Communism, it would be most unusual. The young people there, as in the Unit­ed States, have been brainwashed and in the Soviets' book, older per­sons don't count. We would like to think the Anti-Communist Youth group is correct in assum­ing that the desire for freedom stilt burns in Russian hearts. Congressman James Whitten of Mississippi has introduced a bill in Congre3s which would require that Veterans Hospital.s provide separate facilities for white and Negro patients who request such sepa1·ate facilities. Although com­mon decency would suggest that this be done, the bill probably won't pass unless outraged Amer­icans demand that their congress­man and their two senators sup­pol ·t it. We Can't Do Without World ·War II Taxes But Can Give Away Billions How in the name of all that's Holy can members of Congress who intend to vote for the Foreign Aid bill, justify such act when they consider that the American people are still being taxed under a reve­nue measure passed during World War II? It is a disgrace and a blot on the honor of the lawmakers that a tax is still collected on purses, cos­metics, railroad fare and scores of other necessities of life which they refuse to repeal on the ground that the revenue is necessary to the conduct of government. To vote to give away billions of dollars to foreigners while refus­ing to rep~al tax levies imposed during a war seventeen years ago is adding insult to injury.

March, 19S8 Where Have We Seen These Same Demands Before? Some years ago the Communist Party was supposed to have been out­lawed in the United States by legis­lation which was more or less of a joke by compelling them to rc-gister wilh the proper authorities. Now that the Supreme Court, in its decisions, is squarely behind their right to operate in any area of activ­ity, the Party has lost its timidity and boldly proclaims its demands. Reading over these demands, one can understand why the Communists would have no hesitancy in making them because they coincide, in the main, with what the Modern Repub­licans and Fair Deal Democrats either have put into effect or propose to do so. Here are the majority o.f the Communists' demands which they want put into effect in this country: Repeal o.f the McC.<ij'ran-Walter Immigration Act; strengthened Civil Rights legislation; 30-hour work week; Federal ' .Aid to education; increased Federal Housing; unrestricted World Trade; stopping of atom bomb tests; a summit conference; universal dis­armament; the recognition of Red C'hina by the United States and its acceptance into the United Nations; Foreign Aid to Communist countries; repeal of the Taft-Hartley act: in­creased old-age pensions and public health insurance. In case the above demands are taken for the program of Modern Republicans or Fair Deal Democrats, we reiterate that these are the de­mands ol the Communist Party in the United States.

New low in gubernatorial be­havior: Governor Raymond Gary of Oklahoma whose actions are frequently claimed to be embar­rassing and inexplicable to respon­sible citizens of that great State, has done it again. He has issued an order that hereafter Negroes are to be admitted to the Okla­homa National Guard. Approxi­mately 8,200 members of the Guard have dropped out and ap­parently the Governor's idea is to replace them with Negroes. This should provide an interesting sit­uation if, and when, some Okla­homa community refuses to inte­grate and the President takes over the National Guard and sends them in with bayonets to handle the situation. There are 6,800 white members of the Guard and how many of them will drop out when the new order takes effect is, of course, anybody's guess. May­be it will wind up as an all-Negro National Guard.

Those who have been liberal in one generation may be quite reactionary in another. The only con-sistency that can be claimed for the term ''liberalism" is that it is a pro­test against the existing order of things. But when th~ existing order is liberal in the true sense, the protest necessarily calls !or something else. iberal is one who loves liberty under law, pro ess o Oe one; but if he is one who regards all changes as progress, then I disclaim all pre­tensions to the title.

The thing we have most to fear is not war, even in the atomic age. The thing we have most to fear is gov­ernment. '!'he peoples of this world, from the time when the memory of man runneth not to the contrary, have not suffered tl."leir greatest indignity, degradation, and desolation from the ravages of war. They have not suf­fered their worst oppression from the invasion of foreign, hostile foes. 1f we add up the total of all the injustice and cruelty which the peoples of this earth have endured in every age and clime, we shall find that the major part of their wrongs have been inflict­ed upon them not by foreign conquer­ors but by their own governments. Malice domestic, not foreign levy, is the thing we have most to fear. There are only two philosophies of government. There never have been any others. These two philosophies comprehend many par~es, doctrines, and isms, but they comprehend them all. One philosophy teaches that the people belong to the state; the other, that the state belongs to the people. Many of the first category may object to suoh a plain statement of the fact; but I am not responsible for the facts, my only responsibility being to state them. One exalts the state and de­grades the individual; the other exalts the dignity and the liberty of the in­dividual and holds that the state is the servant of the people whose duty it is to protect that liberty and that dig­nity. Under one system a person is a subject of his rulers; under the other he is a -citizen of his country.

Those who chafe at the imate power except what the people have conferred upon it through the constitution. Our constitution is a Jaw above the government, to which it must conform. It protects tJhe indi· vidual from the tyranny of the ma­jority. It prote:ts me from my own government. It is my contact with my government, and the government has no more right to violate it than I have. Laws passed by Congress are passed' by the agents of the people, and the acts of an agent are void if they exceed the authority given him by his principal. Accordingly, when our Congress enacts a statute not au­bhorized by the constitution, such an ena:tment is not the law of the land. We shall not lose our liberties and we need have no great fear of our government if we keep the constitu­tion and the freedoms and protections it affords. Whether that instrument will withstand the assaults which are being made and will be made upon it is a question of gravest import to every man, woman, and child in these United' States. When the safeguards of the constitution are withdrawn, if we are not deprived of life, liberty, and property without due process of law, or drawn and quartered, we shall owe our immunity not to the protec­tion of any fundamental law, but only to thf' merciful inclinations of those wh;J happen to be in control of the _government. So long as we have the restraints on government now provided by the constitution, we shall have a govern­ment oi law and not of men; but when those restraints are gone or disregard­ed, we shall have a government of men and not of law. That is the only practical difference between our gov­ernment and the totalitarian govern­ment of Communistic Russia. ' It is not correct to say that the con­stitution gives us any rights. The people had the rights be(ore they adopted the constitution. And until recent years at least it was generally considered that our rights to life, lib­erty, and property were inherent and inviolable, and lihat the government was insti'tuted to protect us in their enjoyment. The in~idious character of the cam­paigns which are made to deprive the The American people have cause to be grateful to Senator Harry Flood Byrd of Virginia for agree­iflg to run again for the United States Senate after previously having said that he would retire. Senator Byrd represents a type of lawmaker fast disappearing from the American scene-he is honest, capable and injo1·med and he is scrupulously opposed to the squandering of taxpayers' money. We need more, not fewer, men of his type and will get them back again when the people rise up in their might and demand it. · F1·om a subscriber in Atlanta, Georgia: "You continue to present unanswerable arguments with a jine sense of courage and humor." restraints which the constitution puts on the men who administer our gov­ernment often ridicule that document a·s a relic of the horse and buggy days. Of course they do not tell us what they have in mind. No would-be ty­rant ever told his people that he in­tended to enslave them. The extinc­tion of their liberties is usually so gradual that the victims are a£_cus­tomed to their loss before they are aware of the fact. And in every case the transfer is accompanied by such alluring propaganda that the people, it they think about it at all, believe they are gaining more than they are giving up. Benjamin Franklin said that any people who traded liberty tor security deserved neither liberty nor security. He might have added that they will have neither very long. But surely no sane man ever traded his birth-right for a mess of pottage who did not think he was making some­thing on the deal. His future master comes to him in the guise of a bene­factor; and those who in our day can­not abide liberty in their fellow-man -and they are legion-and who insist on planning and regimenting the lives o! their equals, adopt the name of ''liberals" in order to appear progres­sive and up-to-date, and it does not always instantly oc::ur to us that the only thing they are liberal with ls other people's freed'om. At the risk of being considered unSophisticated and immature, I do not hcsit::~te to admit that I am not illumined by a single ray of this new and modern light that teaches that the best way to make free government work is to Cl.estroy it. It is claimed that times have changed, and the former standards are no longer admissable. I overrule the objection. They stood in America with little question for nearly two centuries, while we builded a civiliza-tion which is the wond'er and ad mira- \. tion of the world. Principles of free government do not change. Men who profess them may change, but trhey do not. They are as everlasting a9 God's stars and as immutable as His justice. I believe in them as a Ohris-tian believes in his religion, and I will not yield them at the behest of any living man. The farcical celebration of "Brotherhood Wee k'' recently found more hatred, more racial tension and more mutual distrust of each other on the part of hu~ man beings than at any time in the history of the world. ·This un~ happy condition is due to eternal meddling in affairs tQhich do not concern them by do-gooders who are determined to make every­body "love" evrybody else even if they have to ram a bayonet in the back of dissenters to bring about "Brotherhood."

Page 8 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE WhenGodPassedOutBrains We Offer A Sensible Solution TheyMustHaveBeenAWOL To An Embarrassing Dilemma It's really remarkable how the English language can be twisted to mean anything that politicians want it to mean. For instance, there are a lot of fancy names applied to what is happening to us. Some call it a "re­cession" or "pause in the down­ward trend"; others a "breather", a "falling off" or an "adjustment." The facts are that we are face to face with a depression that may make that of 1932 seem like the Golden Age of Prosperity". Because of crushing tax levies and Socialistic legislation to stiffle private industry and free enter­prise, our economy is now almost wholly dependent on defense spending and we are about to the point where we can't afford to have peace. We have to remain on the verge of war, or threats of war, to keep from going "bust". And naturally an economy which is based on eternal spending o[ the taxpayers' money cannot en­dure forever. The source is going to dry up, in the natural order of things. And as an indication of the grasp which those who represent us in Washington have of the matter, they propose to halt the depres­sion and cure unemployment by resorting to the leaf-raking pro­gram of the Roosevelt administra­tion and appropriate millions for another WPA. They could put the nation's economy back on its feet quicker than you can say 40Karl Marx" by slashing taxes, discontinuing for all time the disgraceful give-away program in the interest of foreign· ers, taking the government out o.f competition with private business and submitting an amendment to the States for repeal of the income tax amendment. But there are not over ten men in the Senate and twenty-five in the House who would dare to ap­proach the problem from the view­point of sound statesmanship and handle the situation in the interest of the people of the United States. Their only reaction to any sort of an impasse, domestic or foreign, is to make another raid on the treasury and to rob the tax-paying geese that lay the golden eggs. We have said before and we re­peat that a full cqmplement of Boy Scouts could have administer­ed the Federal Government over the past twenty-five years with no less disastrous results to the econ­omy and to the rights of the citi­zen and of property than have ac­crued from three International So­cialist administrations in Washing· ton. CORRECTION We are sorry that in last month's edition of the paper we showed Senator George W. Malone as rep­resenting Nebraska instead of Ne­vada. It was a slip of the typewrit· er and we apologize. We knew, of course, that this great public ser­vant belonged to the great State of Nevada before the people of the latter State started writing to remind us, but aU of us are entitled to be stupid once in a while and we were probably merely taking advantage of that prerogative. We hope the people of Nevada will forgive us. Our good friend, Jack Porter of Houston, national Republican committeeman from Texas is in deep sorrowful trouble. In fact, he is right behind the 8-l_?all and wouldn't we dearly love to be in exactly the same kind of jam? Mr. 1Porter has $100,000 which nobody wants and he can't give aw:1y. It's an involved story the half of which has never been told-until now, that is. This good Texan has been in the dog-house ever since he gave a Republican dinner in Houst0n sometime ago and, in our opinion, very unjustly so because he didn't do anything out of line except talk out of turn and write letters when he had a telephone right at his elbow. In his invitation to prospective guests at the dinner, he said, or intimated, that the money to be raised on the festive occasion would be used in efforts to pass the Harris gas bill through Congress which should, of course, have been passed long ago without any pressure being applied or a penny being raised for the purpose. In some way the contents of Porter's letter were made public where­upon the admi~istration and. the Republican campaign committee in Washington .broke out with a rash of virtue similar to that which af­flicted the President two years ago and which caused him to veto the same bill because some oil man was alleged to have offered a• United States senator $2,500 to vote for it. The fact that the same oil man had contributed twice that amount to the 1952 Eisenhower campaign, was beside the point. At any rate, there was a loud howl in Modern Republican circles in W?shington and it was shouted in the headlines that the Porter money simply would not be accepted by the Republican campaign committee. So there! We are personally very fond of Mr. Porter. So much so, in fact, that we deeply sympathize with him in his embarrassing dilemma and we are anxious to help take him off the spot. So, we'll take the $100,000 off his hands and we won't be em­barrassed in the slightest by accepting the filthy, tainted money which the very fastidious Republicans rejected. We could do plenty with it. Now here's the angle to the story which has not been played up. Mr. Eisenhower insists he is for the gas bill which reduces Federal authority over an important private industry but when the bill came to his desk two years ago, he vetoed it. He professed to be horrified because money had been mentioned in connection with the passage of the bill. That gave him an alibi; his political virtue was vindicated and his advisers overjoyed. Now the Porter fiasco seems to provide a sec:md alibi which is so effective that the bill probably won't even get out of committee. It's all done with mirrors. Meantime, we are going to meet the postman at the elevator every day from here on in anticipation of Mr. Porter's acceptance of our offer to take the unwanted money off his hands. NEA Has Done Enough Damage A~d Should Keep Still From Here On It is amusing to see the National Education Association taking advant· age of all the sputter about t-he Sput­nik and demanding that we do away with !ads and frills in education and strength-en fundamentals in public school curricula. We would like to ask, pray, who was it who destroyed the fundament. als in education and who added the fads and frills if not the National Education Association? This left·wing organization has set the policies of practically every pub· lie school in America during more than a quarter century and it was they who fastened Progressive Edu· cation on the nation with tp.e result that students, in far too many cases, can neither read, write nor spelJ. Thoughtful parents have been con. cerned for years over the subjects which were being taught their chil- The biggest laugh of a!! time: when Elean·or Roosevelt denounces Communism and Communists with total disregard for the fact that she has done more than perhaps any woman in the USA to ad­vance the cause of the Soviets and to initiate the policies for which they stand. dren to the neglect of the "funda· mentals" but when they tried to do anything about it they were publicly cccused by NEA propagandists of trying to ruin the schools. The purpose of Progressive Educa­tion was to "level oU" American students, according to the World S.ocialist formula, and give Negroes a chance to lift themselves to the schol· astic standard of white students but it didn't work. Progressive Education lowered the white students' standard without raising that of the colored race. The best thing, and the only con­sistent thing, the leaders of The Na­tional Education Association can do is to keep still and try .not to do any more harm to American youth than they have already done. According to press reports, the Soviets exploded a nuclear weapon on February 2~rd which is equal to one million tons of TNT. Nice people, those Soviets! This latest stunt would seem to normal per­sons to sort of put a crimp in the argument advanced by some of our good people, including many ministers, for upeaceful CO·exist­ence" with the Bolsheviks. March, 1958 A Couple Of Buns We Could Do Without We don't know how others feel but we are fed up with the Churchill progeny and their insults to the Unit· ed States. First there was Sarah, the third­rate actress daughter of Sir Winston who, alleged to have been stewed to the gills, w<.os arrested by Hollywood police after declaring that someday England would throw a bomb on the U. S. or words to that effect, as quot· ed in the press. After she had left the country, her brother, Randolph, made the front pages of American newspapers fol­lowing an interview in New York in which he bitterly attacked members of the press for referring to his sister's Hollywood stu:1t. We certainly don't believe in hold­ing parents responsible for the be­havior of their adult delinquent off. spring but i! Sir Winston would just keep his brood at home hereafter, we think it would greatly help British· American relations. Resolution Would Give Negroes Their Own Nation In Africa Senate Resolution 276 is belore the Senate Foreign Relations Committee ot the United States Senate and sponsors of the measure hope to get it favorably reported. The Resolution by Senator Langer of North Dakota would establish a government in Africa for American Negroes and provide for transporta­tion of an those who cared to go where they might have their own nation with a government o! Negroes, by Negroes and for Negroes. Rev. B. A. Jones, a Negro minister ot Denison, Texas, is working for passage of the bill and requests us to mention the subject in our columns. We are all for the Resolution but doubt that it will get anywhere for two reasons: Washington politicians want to exploit the Negro vote and don't want members ol that race to have their own nation and their own government and second, we do not believe many colored people would be willing to leave the United States. We commend the Reverend Jones for his sponsorship ol the bill and wish him the greatest measure ol success in the undertaking. Communist Activity Is "Honorable" Court Holds Although it's not news any more, we are moved to record another Victory for Communism in a Su­preme Court decision. According to their latest pro­Communist ruling, the Army has no authority "to give less than an honorable discharge to men ac­cused of Communist activities be­fore induction". The decision was in connection with the cases of John Henry Har- ~~~ ~~a~re~s~~~~~~o~~t~, gfvee~ "undesirable" discharges. The Court ordered the Army to alter the record and show that they were "honorably'1 discharged. This ruling is in line with all decisions of the Court where Com­munists or Communist sympathiz­ers are concerned and there is no point in remarking on it. We just thought we'd mention it.
