From the East Coast: "Your editorial style is excellent-it has wit and the so-called 'common touch' which means that you have struck a note that will interest a great many people and especially those whose minds are taken ~p with earning a living and who are not familiar with conditions you pomt out." From the State of Washin~ton: "! do not live in the South but you are reflechng the thoughts of millwns all over the Umted States and we are with you out here." A lady from Georgia grew lyrical in her approach to the subject: "I had ~een longing .for it with a great longing. I had been wishing for it a long tune. And thiS morning it came-a copy of the Southern Conservative. I have spent hours and hours reading it over and over. 1 could scarcely be­lieve it, yet had known that something like this would eventually be started. I wish I had a billion and I'd send a million of it to you." (Editor's note: We wish so too.) From. an Alabama lawmak~r: "I stand for everything that the Southern Conservative stands for and th1s paper is exactly what I have been wishing to see printed. !\fore power to you." From the West Coast: "If this letter seems slightly incoherent at mom­ents it's because I am still in hysterics after reading George Dixon's col­umn about your paper. All glory to the Southern Conservative. May it live forever and find its way into millions of American homes." From Missouri: "Not in years have I read anything with so much pleas­ure. My face is very red now when I admit what I once referred to with pride -I was brought up in Independence, Missouri.11 From Montana: "Have read the first edition of the Southern Conserva­tive and wish to advise that we out here think it to be one of the best ex­ponents of Americanism so far presented." From the Deep South: ''Though an invalid unable to sit up, I had them prop me up in my bed and I read every word of every article in the Southern Conservative. The message in this publication is bound to hear fruiV' From the West Coast came this brief comment: "Well, heavens and earth, a real paper at last. It takes 'guts' to do what you're doing." From Louisiana: "The Southern Conservative is a publication that voices the opinions of people who are more interested in the fundamental principles of our government than in those who hope to perpetuate them­selves in office.~~ From Nebraska: "Thanks for the Southern Conservative and for inform­ing us of what many did not knO\v-that conservative coalition has blocked some of Truman's crazy plans." From Pacific Northwest: "I am so impressed and so thoroughly ap· prove o( the paper that I want to thank you for the 'guts' you have shown." From Michigan: "The work you are doing is certainly splendid and up here we wish you every success." !<'rom North Carolina: "The Souther_n Conservative is a great patriotic service and my prayers go out to you m your efforts to try to helP the country we love so well. I pray God will give you His divine aid in this patriotic undertaking." Again from the West Coast: "There is a possibility that only the sharp­est ridicule of the New Deal gang will save this nation. My hat's off to you." From Indiana: "We need more papers which will stand up for the right principles, so when a paper such as you present comes along, it is ~he duty of every liberty-loving person to get on your 'band wagon' and that 1s where I want to be." From Texas: "A copy of the Southern Conservative has been sent to me and whoever is sponsoring this paper is rendering a wonderful service to America.'' From Vermont: "The Southern Conservative is a journal after my own heart. Good luck to you." From a Louisiana lawmaker: "It is too bad that every person in this country could not have a chance to. read the Southern Conservative. I can­not begin to tell you how much I enJoyed i-cading it." From West Texas: "If a publication of this quality cannot generate in our people a determination to return to Constitutiona~ government, then we are lost and must resign ourselves to complete dommation by unscrup­ulous politicians who are delivering us into bondage and economic ruin. I was bred, born and raised a Democrat but there has been no such thing as a Democratic Party since Mr. Roosevelt took over in 1933." From a Texas Precinct Democratic Chairman: "I wish every Democratic Precinct Chairman in Texas could have a copy of the Southern Conserv­ative." A leading Texas attorney: "I heartily agree with. Y?Ur editorials and with the attack you are making on the bunch of Soctahsts, Reds, Fello.w­travelers and Corruptionists now infesting the government from the White House down.'' From an Arkansas lawmaker: ''I honestly believe that a million copies of the Southern Conservative should be distributed over the country for we are going to have to re-imbue our citizens with strength and courage.'' A Texas physician: "I hppe t~at you will keep up .the go~d _work. It !s encouraging that some one IS trymg to stop the creepmg Soc1alism that JS gradually destroying our freedom and incentive. l am confident of your sincerity." From a retired minister: "We greatly need a paper like yours. I hope God will prosper your work and ~ake you a ~ghty voice crying i.n the wilderness of complacency and dece1t through whtch we are now passmg." From a noted educator and his wife: "You could not have sent us a New Year's gift that would have pleased us as much as the Southern Con· servative. A million good wishes." From a National patriotic organization: "We think you are doing a fine thing in starting a publication to arouse the citizens of this Republic to the dangers that are threatening our liberties." From a War Veterans organization: uAllow us to congratulate you on a very fine first issue. The articles are well written and the subjects well chosen." From a New York attorney: "Congratulations on your level-headed newspaper.'' From a housewife in the State of Washington: uArter reading George Dixon's column about the Southern Conservative, I just have to express my unbounded admiration for the genius of the editor. The milk of LHnan kind .. ness has been curdled in me for Ia these many !\'ew Deal years but if I could only read something like this each day, my sense of humor mif,:lt pull me through." From Virginia: "Heartily approve of the Southern Conservative. Hope it will wake up those Americans who have been asleep at the switch." From Tennessee: "Have been wondering for a long time why some one didn't do just what you are doing." From Angel Island: "The Southern Consen ative shows that there are ~~~a~ r~r~r~sTs~rlic~~~e ~~;r~h~o d~a~~v~h~u~-o~~~~l!r~r b~o~gn~rc~i~,~~:~d~l~ I naturally honor any other woman wl'lo has the nerve to be a real American and is not afraid to make their stand public." A Pasadena lady writes that although she is a grandmother, she has never written a "fan letter" to a newspaper or any one else in her life. She states that it was reading George Dixon's column about the Southern Conp servative which caused her to break down and depart from her lifetime rule, and to write us thanking us for a wondertul service to the country. We wish that we could give excerpts from all the grand letters received, but space will not permit and the above quotations will have to suffice. The scores of letters received discussing "::\ly Night" column, are not included here and are briefly referred to in another column of the paper. They constitute another story and are all in a class by themselves. We wish we could reproduce them but practically all of them ar~ so frank and worded in such rugged language that they would not conform to the rules of censor~ ship governing published material. We are deeply grateful that our effor~s ~a\'e received such \''arm com~ mendation from all over the country and 1t JS heart-warming to know that people in the various States are becoming fully awakened to the danger to our established institutions of government.

However, I ha\'e been compelled to do my writing under all sorts of unusual conditions for so long that I can now whip up ~n article while traveling on a cattle boat, mule train. ox cart, pony express or dog sled ~nd I once had to dictate my column while hanging \lpside down from a stunt plane during an Air Carnival beina given for the benefit of displaced beachcomber.!.. Following the adjournment of committee number 711 of Amalgamated Countries tonight, I had the privilege and honor of posing for a photograph with a Tribal Chieftain from the Left Bank of the Congo and was deeply touched when this courteous gentleman graciously removed the brass ring from his nose and presented it to me as a souvenir. While I have made ita lifetime policy never to step across a picket line, I have no inhibitions whatever where the color line is concerned. Later, while dining with him on the veranda of the International House ol Backward Nations, I had to promise that I would find time to fly over to his Province in a jet-propelled plane within the near future where my mission will be to convince the natives in the Bush Country that they are underprivileged and don't know it. By stirring them up and instilling in them a feeling of discontent with their lot, I hope to encourage them to ultimately reach the Ptopian goal of high living stand~ ards, spiritual unity and general civic righteousness which prevails in my own neigh.~ boring borough ol Harlem.
