We have never known so many people to be so thoroughly alarmed over the. State of the Union as at this good hour and we have been an observer of political reactiOns for a long time. . The general attitude, according to communications and practically tons ~iu~J~~~~~~· a~~~e~~afr~chons of the country, is one of hopelessness, dis~ .

Now, at long last, with a belated sense of responsibility as citizens they are possessed of an over~powering fear that it is too late to beat back the on~ rushing tide. This fear stems from their earnest .consideration of the two men nom~ inated by the major political parties as candidates for president and their realization that neither fills the desperate need for a virile, outspoken and uncompromising champion of the principles which spell the difference be• tween Americanism and the totalitarian type of government which has put the people of two-thirds of the earth in chains. Primarily, they were dumbfounded at the manner in which Southern delegates to the Democratic Convention in Chicago let them down for vaguely, they seemed to consider that salvation lay in the development of strong Southern leadership at Chicago and a Southern revolt growing out of the convention which would serve as the nucleus of resistance to domina~ lion of the Federal government by unioneers and big city machine bosses. When the Southern delegations meekly lay down, one by one, and Jet the CIO-Pendergast mob walk over them, that hope was gone and with it the chance for constructive and organized resistance to Trumanism corrup~ tion and National Socialism. Not having tied our paper to the tail of the kite of any candidate or po· litical party, and continuing to believe that the answer lies with Congress, and not the next president, we do not suffer the "lost orphan" feeling that pervades many hearts, but we certainly share their apprehension about the current situation where World Socialists are breathing down our necks and waiting to take over. A Congressional Coalition saved us from total disintegration into Na· tional Socialism during Roosevelt's and Truman's administration and we re· fuse to concede that any more diabolical, scheming and unprincipled politi· cian could ever occupy the White House than either of those two characters. Many meetings have been held in various sections of the country con· cerning a Third Party movement and numerous splinter parties have been able to place candidates for president on the ticket in their respective States. Any one with a knowledge of practical politics, however, is compelled to face the fact that these scattered and extraneous movements are futile in the present emergency. Whether we like it or not-and most of us don't-either Dwight D. Eisenhower running on a so-called Republican ticket or Adlai Stevenson campaigning on a so-called Democratic ticket will be the next president of the United States and that is all there is to that. To add to the tragedy and dash any' hopes of those who hold that a president of the United States should be an unyielding partisan of his own country and dedicated primarily to its advancement, interests and well-being, the United Nations issued a press release following the Democratic Conven-tion which said: · "The nomination of Governor Adlai Stevenson of Illinois was gen· erally welcomed today by United Nations delegates ...

Herald. (Copyright 19;,2, by Ida M. Darden.) Pogo I THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVI S.ptomber, 1952 Personal Reflections on the National Democratic Convention in Chicago After watching the performance of the keynoter, Paul Dever of Massa­chusetts, it was easy to believe the whispered rumor that his selection for the job had been privately engineered by the Republicans. Like a bull in a china shop who slob­bers on everything he can1t break, Dever threw his weight-all three hun­dred pounds-all over the place and offered profuse insults to the South as perspiration trickled down over two or three of his chins. He got so exercised and wrought up that he completely lost his voice but not soon enough. Blair Moody a mediocre newspaper man who was appointed to the United States Senate from Michigan by an even more mediocre personality, Gover­nor "Soapy" Williams, revelled in the spotlight afforded by convention fa­cilities. Rarely have we witnessed an in­stance of a little man striving so hard lor, or enjoying so thoroughly, his brief chance for a place in the sun. At times it was difficult to decide whether the occasion was a national convention of a political party ot a Roosevelt clambake. The second night was Old Home Week. The joint was jumping as Roosevelts crawled out of the wood­work and swarmed aU over the place. In true Rooseveltian tradition, they bogged the spotlight, pranced and preened all over the podium and gave the public a treat by flashing buck teeth at the television camera. Jimmy Byrnes' valiant stand against attempts to force the South Carolina delegation to take the "pledge of loy­alty" to Fair Deal corruption almost · tempted one,to forgive him for his former association with the gang but his wavering attitude after he return­ed home, cancelled out any admiration for his performance in Chicago. Ordinarily women speakers at po­litical conventions give out with the same tonal quality which is achieved by ripping a strip of bed-ticking and Applause Purchased . With Other People's Money the gravel-voiced dames with the poodle-dog hair-do's at Chicago were no exception. · The one who gaggea us most-next to you know who-was India Edwards, thelantern-jawedladychairmanofthe Womens Division who has acquired a permanent chip on her shoulder, probably as a result of having to con­stantly defend the misdeeds of her masculine superiors. As she began her speech and found no one paying any attention, she grabbed the gavel and whammed it down like a blacksmith pounding an anvil. After she had delivered a vigorous tongue-lashing to the audience, she stepped back, assumed a belligerent stance and glared. Watching her, one got the impres­sion that, just for a little, she would haul off and spit through her teeth. We missed the elevating experience of hearing the talk of Perle Mesta, the comic opera minister to Luxem­bourg, but we got a load of Eugenie Anderson who has been helping to run Denmark and who appeared so souped up over that assignment that she felt thoroughly qualified to tell the people of the South how to xun their business She tossed in the old gag that our treatment of "minorities" is encourag­ing the spread of Communism. Apparently, she feels that Commun­ism can be overcome by the adoption of the racial policies of Joe Stalin who does not like the South, either. One of the unfortunate casualties of the convention was Senator Richard Russell of Georgia whom most South­erners regarded as a man of conviction and for whom we had a limited amount of respect in view of his voting record -which is both good and bad. At any rate, he was the hope of the South for a States Rights candidate until he suddenly ran wild on the bases and started making passes at union racketeers, offering to swap principles for votes. He never had a chance to be nomi­nated, of course, as the whole thing was sewed up in advance but it is re­grettable that he did not emerge with his personal dignity and political in­teg'rity intact. Estes Kefauver also stampeded like a steer in a thunder-storm and franti­cally rushed out Into the market place offering his wares to nonexistent bid­ders. However, he never had. anything to lose in the first place except the tail on his coonskin cap. A political climber and insuffera­ble opportunist who sought to capital­ize on his phony crime investigation, he presented a pitiable picture of a public servant as endured by the American people today. A tragi-comic sidelight was the be­lated discovery and admission by poor Alben Barkley that union labor thugs are in complete control of the Demo· cratic Party machinery. Apparently he is one Washington politician who either does not read­or lightly esteems-the editorials in the Southern Conservative. We have been saying that for years. Having abjectly served the crooked ends of labor rack.eteers during his entire public career and being an ac· cessory to their rape of the Federal government, he did not realize their capacity for criminal ingratitude to, and ruthless repudiation of, a discard­ed servitor until they suddenly turned on him and s1it his throat. In another era before the party to which he belongs fell into the posses­sion of political vultures who feed on the substance of the thrifty, the provi­dent and the industrious, Barkley might h;~.ve been a useful member of human society. Any national political party conven· tion invariably produces candidates for other honors besides the presidency and vice-presidency. They are those who are entitled to the nomination as the biggest ass of the occasion. There were so many contenders for this distinction at the Democratic gathering at Chicago that it is difficult to make a choice. Our votes goes to any one of three but not necessarily in the order named: Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., of New York, Paul Dever of Massachusetts and Blair Moody or Michigan. The campaign of Averell Harriman never left the ground in spite of all efforts of "Junior" to get it air-bourne. The millionaire Socialist who seems as cheerful as a professional pall­. bearer spent most of his time just walking around looking mournful and sad. His long, earnest and proiound peri­ods of silence were attributed to the fact that he didn't have anything to Robert S. Kerr, millionaire Oklahoma aspirant for the Fair Deal nomination took along to the convention a replica of the log cabin where he was born as testimony to his resemblance to Abra­ham Lincoln. Even more ridiculous than this cheap and vulgar bid for notoriety was his boastful slogan: "Kerr deflated Mac­Arthur; he can defeat Eisenhower". Which reminded us of the gadfly which suddenly flew up and bit a mule on the rump, causing him to scamper off with his tail in the air, and who turned to the gnat and brag­ged: "I sure won the fight with that big guy". With the "draft" of the Captive Candidate of the CIO as nominee for president and the selection of a syn· thetic Southerner as the vice president­ial candidate, the conclave of union­eers, Federal job-holders, Socialists, Internationalists, Communist - fronters and plain, stupid dopes, came to an end. Many of the latter found it hard to swallow much of the hOg-wash in the platform but, on second thought, they decided that their personal interests were, after all, paramount to the gen­eral welfare and that the little number adopted as the campaign song hit the nail right on the head: "Don't let them take it away".
