Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead lor a Return ol Constitutional Government- Vol. 12 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, MARCH, 1961 No. l American People Entitled To Facts And Not Rumors Concerning Controversial Situation Those Who Are Fearful of What Foreigners Think Had Better Bring 'Soapy' Back Home ~ Dimwitted Liberals who quake in their boots over what this or that nation may think of us, and who use this as an excuse for attacks on American customs and traditions, should take a long look at one of their idols, Soapy Williams, whom the President recently sent to Africa to size up the situation there. From all reports of Soapy's antics and pronouncements in the Dark Continent, the savages in the jungle over there are liable to judge Ameri­cans pretty harshly and to wonder if the slap-happy specimen now roam­ing around in their midst is the best example of leadership we have to offer. It so. they will probably decide that they will just haul off and settle their problems with the bow and arrow. The London Daily Telegraph complained editorially of Soapy's con· duct at a recent reception in Kenya where it is claimed he succeeded in amazing and offending practically every one present by his odd b e ­havior. Congressman William E. Miller of New York is quoted as having fmplored the President to recall him "before he spreads hoof-in-mouth disease all over Africa." Of course the natural impulse of a normal American is to wonder why in the name of all that's holy the man was ever appointed as a State Department official in the first place and why he should have been inflicted upon, of all people, the confused and bemuddled savage tribes in Africa who were already reeling under problems too complex for them to understand or solve. · In addition, to have Soapy unloaded on them would seem to be stretching human endurance to the breaking point and adding insult to Injury. The answer lies in the inexplicable practices of politics and the payola incident to a national election. After a dozen years of valiant effort, Soapy had finally succeeded fn bankrupting the treasury of the Grand Old State of Michigan which he had "served" for that length of time as governor, and was on the loose. r As a result of some horse trade or other at the Los Angeles Con­vention, by which Soapy is alleged to have aided in the Kennedy nom­ination, the President found himself with the guy on his hands and didn't know what to do with him. That he finally decided to dump him on the frustrated and baffled natives of the most unhappy country on the globe is either evidence that he doesn't like the black men or that he didn't figure that the African problem could be settled during his term, anyway. \ At any rate, it looks like the only way out is for those who are eternally conscious of the impression we might make on the people of foreign countries, to lasso Soapy and drag him back home before the befuddled Africans get the idea that all Americans are like him and start shooting at us. The national debt is almost $300,000,000,000.00 and yet scarcely a day passes that bills are not dumped on Congress calling for billions of (lollars to finance Socialistic proposals dreamed up by addle-brained college professors. Thousands of anguished Americans are wondering what they, as individuals, can do to help save the Republic ahd our humble suggestion is that they demand of their representatives in Con­gress that they vote against each and every one of these insane spending schemes. For years the chcr9e has been freely mode with apparently no official denial thot the policies which ore fosterin9 the spread of Communism throu<;~hout the world are concurred in by a small cot<!rie of fellow travellers who hold Squatters' Ri<;~hts in the State Depor?ment ond who ore not dislod9ed by oily cnon9e in national administrations. Durin9 the Presi· dentiol compoi9n no reference wos mode to these claims althou9h the State Department is the heart of American dip· lomotic ond forei9n relations ond the obli<;~ation to keep thot a<;~ency stoHed with men of unchollen<;~ed loyalty is perhaps more imperative than is the cose in ony other sector of <;!OV• ernment. Surely some unbiased ond responsible committee could be set up in Woshin<;~ton to thoroughly investigate the matter ond reassure the American people once ond for oil thot - in this dork hour when Communism is closing in on on olormin9 segment of the earth's population - our most vital government agency is not harborin9 ony mon or set of men whose sympathy lies with those sworn to destroy us. Whether one loved Senator Joe McCarthy or hated him, the irre­futable fact remains that he knew more about Communist infiltration into high levels"'"'of government than any other American and that this knowledge which he sought to transmit to his fellow Americans ulti­mately resulted in his untimely death. As far back as 1950 he was appearing before selected groups of citizens in this country calling names and offering proof that a small clique of hand·picked sub-diplomats at policy level in the State Depart­ment were guilty of activities which were not designed to protect the internal security of the United States. Many of these charges were reflected in the testimony of the Wis­consin senator at the McCarthy hearings and the subsequent attacks and smears which resulted in his death are now a matter of history. . But the ghosts that Joe McCarthy raised have refused to be laid and are now coming back to haunt those who crucified him for daring to raise the issue of loyalty in a Federal government agency. The Subcommittee to Investigate the Administration of the Internal Security Act and Other Internal Security Laws of the Committee on the Judiciary of the United States Senate has just released testimony of William D. Pawley which bears out many charges made by Senator McCarthy and reveals that some of those fired by the State Department as a result of such charges are again working in strategic positions around over the wbrld. Mr. Pawley is a former Ambassador to Peru and Brazil, former special assistant in the Defense Department and former assistant in the State Department. Mr. Pawley did not offer this testimony of his own volition. He was subpoenaed by the Subcommittee and put under oath and he was on the witness stand for almost two days on last September 2 and Septem­ber 8. This testimony had no sooner been released than left-wing column­ists as well as some Conservatives bitterly attacked Mr. Pawley appar­ently because of their personal friendship for some of those whom he named in his testimony. But the significant thing is that those accused by him have the privilege of appearing before the same Subcommittee and refuting any­thing or everything to which he testified. This they have not done and that should be sufficient answer to the critics of Mr. Pawley.

That is the only way it can Washington politicians are also screaming their heads off about the "depressed areas" over the coun­try where business has been brought to a standstill and they want billions to bolster the econ­omy in those sections. What they don't admit is that ..1ha-policY' of building up ind:u~ in foreign countries which is put­ting American businesses out of commission, is their own cute little idea and that they, alone, are to blame for the "depressed areas" because their every official act has been in the interest of foreign pro­ducers and against those of the United States. Instead of admitting their own incompetence, short-sightedness and stupidity in shaping" policies of government and in ill-advised leg­islation, they now propose to give business a shot in the arm by spending billions of dollars more. They are bleating about the gold situation and the threat of the further devaluation of the Ameri­can dollar throueh inflation, but they didn't open 'their traps when American Presidents issued execu­tive orders that Americans cannot possess gold nor purchase it in foreign lands but advocated the The great "statesman" from Ten­nessee, Albert Gore, sounded the theme song of modern politics in a speech at Atlantic City recently when he said "we cannot any long­er afford to Jet lack of revenue either dictate the level of our de­fense effort or retard the expansion of our economy." No indeedy, let's not pay any attention to money. Let's do it on the cuff. Through sixteen years of the One-World United Nations and the resultant meddling of each nation into the affairs of others, the time has been brought about when the murder of one black savage in Africa can threaten the peace of the whole world. Some accomplish­ment in the matter of upeace"! For the past quarter century our national leaders have been so over­sold and under-informed on One­World Government t ripe and Hu­- anan Brotherhood lMdoney that tm,y are willing to go all out to bank­rupt American taxpayers and build up foreign economies while letting our own go to pot. Very few nations in history have been destroyed by foreign invasion -most of them have been killed off by the stupidity and ineptitude of their own leaders and that is what is happening in the United States. The Soviets don't need to drop bombs on us; our own ignorance will do the job faster and better. All they have to do is stick around and watch us soend ourselves out of existence as Lenin predicted we would do. If there ever was a time when any nation on the face of God's green earth cried out for leaders with enough sense to come in out of the rain, that nation is the United States and that time is now. The Baptist churches, and espe· cially Southern Baptists, were al­most the last denomination among Protestants to yield to Communist pressure on integration of the races. Many Baptist churches are still holding out but influential groups among them are gradually giving in and falling for the old Commy line that the forced mixing of the races is a "Christian responsibility" and that "Christians have Biblical injunctions to respect lawfully con­stituted authority.11 We congratu­late the denomination on resisting as long as it did the powerful Com­munist propaganda which has com~ pelled most church groups to ac­cept its immoral and degenerate edicts on racial mixing. be defeated; we can't depend on statesmanship to do the job, for there is definitely too little of that commodity to be of any value to the nation. Who sets the policy in the Amer­ican State Department which leads the United States to assist Tito, a Communist dictator and reject Tru­jillo, an anti-Communist dictator? When the answer to this question is developed and made public, we will have gone a long way toward stopping the infiltration of Com­munism into our government and other institutions.

To us the most appalling part of Mr. Pawley's testimony is that in which he points out that State Department policy which gears our atti ... tude toward foreign affairs is of anonymous origin and that during his years with the Department he was unable to find out who were the authors of "policy papers" which were submitted as the official pro .. cedure under which the Department operated. There are several schools of thought about who makes State ne .. partment policy and if a probe into this situation did nothing more than to clear up this point, an invaluable service would be rendered the people because some suggestions have been advanced concerning its origin ';.~~.h tend to send cold chills up and down the spines of fearful Ameri- At any rate, those who take the trouble to read uPart 10" will be compelled to do some serious thinking and their meditations will inevitab· ly take them back a decade to Joe McCarthy's warnings which were so serious that his life was forleited. There is an old saying that "there can be no great smoke arise but that there must be some fire" and out of respect for this venerable slogan, if for no other reason, the proper authorities should follow up Mr. Paw .. ley's testimony with a report on the truth or falsity of the charges which he makes. The American people are entitled to full information. Nikita Khrushchev makes no secret of his intentions concerning the American Republic. He says openly that he is going to bury us. If he tries it, it seems to us it would be vastly comforting to the people of this country to have assurance that no highly-placed American pallbearers will be on hand to officiate at the burial services. t.farch, 1961 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIV~ Page ) If The Paper Does Not Make Sense This Month There's A Good Reason It is said that it never rains but it pours and that has proved to be true in our case for it has certainly upoured" on us during these first hectic days of March. • . First off, on February 28th, we came down with a particularly \'ic10us case of flu and were in bed for a week. While we were out of circulation because of this illness, some crook apparently picked the lock on the front door of the building during the mght and gamed entrance to our office and that of an adjoining tenant where he apparently spent hours practicing our signatures and which later turned up on forged checks. Why any forger would select us as a victim is one of the unexplained mysteries of all time for we operate on possibly the lowest budget of any national publicatiOn in existence and the run-down building where our office is located, through financial necessity, certainly would not seem to present an inviting field to a swindler. But apparently it did for he wrote a check on us and two on the other tenant and incredibly the checks were honored apparently with­out investigation or identification. The matter is now being investigated by the proper authorities and we will never be happy until we know who the scoundrel was who did it. Of course neither of us lost any money since the checks were forgeries and the two banks involved, or their bonding companies, had to bear the loss but it was a terrible experience and one not calculated to put us in a frame of mind to write readable copy. As a result the paper is over a week late and if it is not up to par we hope our readers will understand and forgive us. We hope to be able to issue the next and future editions on time. Even though there was no loss of money, the incident was very upsetting although we realize that we should be thankful that it was no worse. Shameful Behavior By Members Of The United States Senate One of the most pronounced examples of political cowardice ever witnessed in a lawmaking body was demonstrated by the vote In the United States Senate on the confirmation of a Negro, Robert C. Weaver, as Federal Housing Ad­ministrator on February 9th. While it is the prerogative, of course, of the Senate to cast a voice vote instead of a record vote on any matter, there was so much controversy concerning this partic­ular appointment that the people had a right to expect each member of the Senate to let his constitu­ents know how he stood on the matter. But the Congressional Rec­ord of that date shows only that the Negro "was confirmed." It is widely reported that only twenty members of the Senate were present when this vote was taken, leaving eighty members un­accounted for on this issue. We made every attempt to get this in­formation from officials of the Sen­ate in order to confirm that only twenty were present, but were un­successful. So we must take the report at face value and accept the conclu~ sion that only twenty members were present. This could mean that eighty members of that body were ashamed to vote for Weaver and afraid not to and settled it by duck· ing out during the vote. At any rate, it appears to us as a rather cowardly way to handle a matter which has caused much concern to the American people. Those who were for confirming this particularly obnoxious appoint­ment should have been willL.1g to go on record to this effect; those opposed, likewise. Trouble makers in the govern­ment who are constantly harping on "racial discrimination" are prac­ticing it themselves. They insist that all citizens should be treated alike in employment "without re­gard to color." Yet, the Kennedy administration, according to the press, has begun a new drive "to recruit Negro co1lege graduates for Federal jobs." If they believe in treating all alike and if they need new Federal employees, which they don't, why not simply "recruit col­lege graduates for Federal jobs"? Why specify Negroes? Isn't that "discrimination" a g a i n s t racial groups or does it depend on whose ox is gored? The big downtown store of S. H. Kress and Company in Fort Worth, whose New York owners ordered their lunch counters integrated sometime ago, has closed its doors and a "for lease" sign hangs on the door. It is the first time within memory when there has not been a Kress store in downtown Fort Worth. How much the integration order had to do with it is not known. Certainly it didn't help business any. When the hate-mongering, rab­ble- rousing Negro Martin Luther King went to New York recently to raise money for his Southern Christian Leadersbip Conference, he dropped the word "Christian" out of the title and just called it the "Southern Leadership Confer­ence." Apparently he thought that an unpopular designation in the nation's largest and most populous city, for some reason or other. Ignorant Educated Men Are Bad But Fools Are Worse It is becoming clearer by the hour that there will be no limit and no let-up in the insane proposals which Harvard professors and other professional do-gooders are going to hatch up for adoption as American policy now that a majority Gf the nation's addled eggheads have been ~pted for service in running the government . Perhaps there will be worse yet to come but undoubtedly the most ill-considered, asinine and idiotic proposal yet advanced is that known as a Peace Corps or Youth Corps which, instead of lessening our med­dling activities throughout the world which are stirring up new enemies by the hour, would aggravate our interference in the affairs of other nations. Assuming with unpardonable impudence and arrogance that we know it all and that other countries can't wait to share our superior knowledge, the Harvard planners propose that a horde of wet-behind­the- ears graduates from left-wing American colleges and universities fan out over the world to "educate" tbe people of the backward coun­tries around the globe. Completely ignoring the fact, aside from all other obnoxious fea .. tures of the plan, that the first years out of school are the ones in which worthwhile young Americans are supposed to qualify for careers as re .. sponsible citizens in a free Republic, the eggheads would have mass production of global social welfare workers, a profession that is without standing in responsible society. Also, it would insure the completion of the infiltration of the minds of Am~rican young people with Communist doctrine. a process that is ~~~~ m most of the colleges and universities from which they would If this screwball program is actually put into effect and we send swanns of half-baked students barging into other countries on their self-imposed mission of eliminating ignorance and "educating" people of foretgn lands, we hope each and every one of them gets a swift kick in the pants and is sent back home. I Any self-respecting, red-blooded and normal American would be burned up if a pack of graduates from foreign universities invaded this country with the ridiculous and absurd intention of "educating" us and we have no reason to think that the citizens of other countries wo~ld not be equally resentful of such unwarranted and presumptuous action on our part. As was naturally to be expected, the harebrained proposal is said to have the full approval of Eleanor Roosevelt who added her twa bits by proposing, in effect, that if they ran out of backward people to edu· cate, they could swoop down on the slums of this country and begin the educational process there, and she added happily that this would be a fine occupation for young married couples who could be sent into our depressed areas to urevitalize" them. So this new venture in national policy may not only banish ignorance and cause knowledge to blossom throughout the earth but may also open up new careers to ambitious youth. Instead of having a profession, a craft or a calling as preparation for acquiring a family, a young man may soon be able to grab himself a bride and skip down in the slums and start revitalizing things all over the place. The American Republic is in far less danger from ignorance than it is from the damage which may be done by educated fools from Harvard and we think this holds true also of the backward countries of the world. "We are convinced that if do­mestic Communists--so powerful­ly assisted by American fellow travelers, pseudo liberals, oppor­tunists and dupes - continue as 1ittle exposed and opposed as here­tofore, the United States of Amer· ica will inevitably fall into the hands of the USSR, without a bomb dropped." - Catholic Freedom FoundatiOn. Senator Styles Bridges of New Hampshire, chairman of the Sen­ate Republican Policy Committee, says he will continue to try to bring about an investigation sur: rounding the circumstances of the release of the two American flyers by Russia recently. There is some talk of a possible deal which migbt have been made with the Soviets while Kennedy was still President­elect, and some Republicans ques­tion his right to negotiate before he took office. However, with a heavy Democratic majority, in Con­gress, Kennedy is expected to tor­pedo any attempt to get at the truth of the matter. For the Congress of the United States to appropriate billions of dollars to initiate Socialistic proj­ect, s in response to the whims and fancies of fuzzy-brained college professors is criminal abuse of the legislative function and a policy which can as surely destroy the American Republic as a hundred bombs dropped on us simultan­eously. "I do not entertain murderers or thieves or rapists or swindlers or forgers in my home. To do so would express my approval of the actions of these individuals. Should we, as the people of a united, freedom· loving nation, consent to a stand­ard of morality in our relations with other nations which we would reject as individuals?" - Excerpt from Senator Barry Goldwater's reasons why the United States should withdraw diplomatic recog· nition of Russia. Fifty-three per cent of the popu· lation of Washington, D.C. is Ne· gro and 87 per cent of the students in school there are colored.

It is believed, and hoped, that this inhuman atrocity has temporarily . put a damper on similar attempts to bring about the abolishment of capital punishment.

THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited ~Y it to the States are reserved to the ~fates re,pectively, or to the people. eo n t'r m Virginia Gets Th~ Last And Loudest La ugh Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas was successful in packing the Rules Committee of the House of Rep· resentatives by a close vote but that grand patriot from Virginia, Congressman Howard W. Smith, had the last laugh. The powerful Rules Committee of the House has heretofore served to restrain silly and fantastic legis­lation from going to the floor. And no one has used the Committee more than the Speaker when he didn't want certain bills to take up the valuable time of the House. But following the close victory for his party last Fall, Mr. Rayburn became quite virtuous and decided that the Rules Committee would prevent some of the New Frontier measures from consideration and that this wasn't right. So Chairman Smith also made a decision and that was to turn loose all legislation, good, bad and in~ different and let the House have a go at it. "Who am I." he as good as said, "to withhold any measure from consideration by my col~ leagues? From this time on, they will get the works." If Congress doesn't get much time during the current session to consider important legislation be~ cause the hopper is clogged with petty measures of no interest to anyone except their authors, who is there to say that it doesn't serve Mr. Rayburn right? As in the case of racial mixing propaganda, the abolishing of States Rights, Federal Aid to Education, Foreign Aid, Socialized Me.dical ~are for the Aged, and all the other evils which are gradually bemg fo1sted upon the American people, each movement is carefully mapped out by foes of this country and every detail planned in advance. The next step is to enlist the help of their unfailing sources of sup­port in this country such as a small group in the American State De­partment, in the Congress and in other agencies of government, educa­tional and religious leaders as well as dim-witted eggheads and do­gooders in all walks of life. In no time at all the proposed campaign to add something new or abolish something old is in full swing and has all the appearance of a popular public demand, so powerful are the oper­ations of experienced world propagandists. These propaganda campaign gimmicks have been worked so often in this country in the past twenty-five years that the grou,2..s referr~d to above automatically fall in line each time a new econom1c or soc1al movement is launched and they perform like sheep being herded into a dipping vat. It is always these same segments who bacl~ each new Red innovation and it is they who are pushing the abolishment of capital punishment. . And the average American with his head in the sand 1s amazed as cherished American traditions, customs and ideals are torn out root and branch but he dumbly ascribes it to "the needs and demands of a changing world." When, and if, the American people ever wake up to t~e fact th~t conspirators against the United States manipulate Am~ncan pubhc op\n\on llke Edgar Bergen manipulates t~e dummy. on h1s lap, let us hope that it won't be too late to do anythmg about 1t .. Stupidity in a citizen is a far greater danger to soc1ety than knavery in a leader. A corrupt leader can be deposed but there is no recourse against fools who are blind to what is taking place before their eyes. It Can't Happen Here? It's Already Happening The American people should not need any reminder of the preva· lence of Communist sentiment in the United States and of its powerful hold on persons in high places but if they do, the exper~en.ce ?f a Holly­wood movie producer who is trying to present a patnohc f1lm should provide such reminder. Robert Reisbeck filmed the movie "The Eleventh Commandment'' which was shot on the islands of Formosa and Quemoy, but when he sought to release the picture he had an agonizing example ?f the stranglehold which International Communism has on the entertamment industry in the United States. According to an interview which Mr. Reisbeck gave to a Fort Worth newspaper man while in this city, Mr. Elston Brooks of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, it was impossible to release the picture in New York, the nation's leading city, where theater managers refused to rent buildings to him, even those which had been shuttered for months.

Reisbeck had official Washington permission to shoot the pic· ture and endorsement of the finished product but could not break through the Iron Curtain which enshrouds the movie industry in major American cities. The producer told how those who had backed the film would re· ceive anonymous calls from "voices that quietly recited the names of the listener's children and what time they got out of school." The Interstate Circuit in Texas proved an exception, according to Mr. Reisbeck and this chain gave permission for the use of their theaters in showing the film which drew record crowds. The showing in Fort Worth was heavily attended and expressions of amazement at the con­ditions revealed by the film, were widespread. The "Eleventh Commandment" by the way which furnishes the title of the show is: 'T hou Shalt Not Enslave Thy Brother." Naturally, the production could not have been exhibited in Russia where enslavement of the people is part of the basic philosophy of the Communist government. But there is almost equal opposition to the picture in the United States, as it turns out, and if there are any stupid dopes who still insist that " It can't happen here," the experience of this great American pic· ture producer in trying to exhibit a patriotic film should make them feel like the asses which they are. March, 1961 Atrocities In Congo Continue As U.N. Forces Prove Helpless Press dispatches from the CongO on March 14th to ld of further out· rages against white people in that area where "indescribable humiJi. .. ations" were practiced on helpless victims by savage members of tribes who are constantly being accepted in the United Nations as civilized States. Terror spread through the Prov· ince of Kivu and complete anarchy reigned throughout the area, the press release stated. Repeated criminal attacks on women mis~ sionaries and Catholic nuns were reported and the bestial behavior was claimed to be of a nature that could not be published. All this happened presumably while United Nations troops sent to preserve order were running for cover. "A United Nations spokes· man said the behavior of the Kivu population and the pro-Lumumba troops was bestial but gave no in· dication the United Nations forces there were able to do anything about it," the dispatch said. Thus the United Nations main· tains its one hundred per cent record for ineffectiveness in any and all situations but instead of a determination on the part of U.S. authorities to pull us out of the outfit, their concern seems to be as to whether or not Red China will be admitted as a member of the One-World organization. And if the Red heathens are admitted, we probably will not withdraw even then. We are afraid that nothing short of national tragedy will awaken the American people and our na· tional leaders to the danger of ex .. termination which faces us as a result of our total failure to put the security of the United States before that of any and all other nations on earth. That is a simple law of self· preservation without which no na· tion can survive the conspiracies constantly directed against it. Somewhere some pretty thor· ough homework has been done when one of the most leftwing publications in the country is able to put on a television spectacular to advertise its product and is able to persuade the President of the United States to appear on the program. We can't help speculat· ing on how quickly a patriotic pub· lication would be turned down who tried the same stunt. New Frontiersmen in Congress are claimed not to be getting much encouragement in their plans to provide for I 00 or so new Federal judgeships. But we'll bet if they would propose to do away with 100 of those we already have, the whole country would swing behind them. Under present law retired Fed .. eral government employees who are receiving annuities up to as much as three hundred dollars per month may still get unemployment compensation provided they agree to accept any employment offered them, but can find no job. Macch, 1961 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 5 Appointment Of Anti-Communist. Results In Strong fight Against Confirmation We have always insisted that the Senate of the United States would confirm, without anything except token opposition, anybody for office a President might name regardless of such appointee's fit­ness or qualifications for the job but that is not quite true. Perhaps James Roosevelt Is More Deserving Of Sympathy Than Scorn We had not taken into consid­eration that sometime, inadvert­ently, a good American with no connections that were suspect, might be named and that has now happened. Through some miscalculation, Charles M. Meriwether who has not been tarred with the Com­munist- approved label of "integra­tionist'' was appointed by the Pres­ident as a Director of the Export­Import Bank and his name was sent to the Senate for confirmation. Whereupon certain members of the Senate who had voted for every sorry specimen of humanity who had been paraded before them, without blinking an eye, jumped in with both feet in a determined fight to keep the liberal, left-wing pattern from being fractured by the acceptance of a sound, clear· thinking and loyal American as a member of the team. The opposition to Mr. Meri· wether was led by Jakie Javits of New York, a so-called Republican who was assisted by Wayne Morse of Oregon, a so-called Democrat, both of whom proved that parti­sanship quickly melts away and party lines disappear when it comes to uniting in a fight on their com· mon enemies--conservative, loyal American patriots. The nominee was confirmed but he faced the stiffest opposition, and practically the only opposition, to any of Kennedy's appointments and he has named some odd ones for sure. One of the newest and most ef· fective weapons that International Communism is using to spread that vile doctrine throughout the world is made up of college students in the United States and other coun .. tries. These immature and emo· tional youngsters are easily indoc· trinated and excited and will en· gage in any subversive activity their masters dictate just for the kick they get out of it. Unless strong measures are taken to put them in their place these young radicals will continue to be a threat to orderly government throughout the world. "We feel we supported and help­ed to elect a candidate who ran on a political platform. We know what's in that platform because we helped draft it. As far as we are concerned, we expect the suc· cessful candidate to carry out the platform in the days ahead when he takes over his job as President of the United States" - George Meany, AFL·CIO head following the November election, and refer· ring to the Union's captive presi· dent in the White House. Movement To Repeal Income Tax Amendment Spreading To All States ~'Systematically reduce the pow· er of businessmen by confiscation of their income at the source through a tax on income." It was Karl Marx who said this and not realizing the source of the idea the American Congress passed the 16th amendment in 1913, says the Or· ganization to Repeal Federal In· come Tax, Inc., of Los Angeles and adds: "Now, we are so used to it, we consider it inevitable. The horror is, that once we had it made law, there is no way to limit it, until now it has become a destroyer of the very liberties which the Con· stitution was supposed to protect. "We know some taxes are neces­sary. But no tax is needful that destroys. The cry is always raised when abolishing the income tax is discussed, ''But where will the money come from to run the gov· ernment?" Well, believe it or not, by certain simple steps such as get· ting the government out of compe­tition with private business, elim· inating wasteful government spend­ing, and retiring the national debt (and interest!), it can be done. "But there is an even more im­portant fact. The tax is morally, ethically, ideologically wrong. It is confiscatory. It gives the Ameri· can government power it has no business having. It allows govern-ment to intrude upon Jiberties, con· trol business, decide whether or not business ran accumulate capital, merge, or depreciate machinery. It can seiz~ your home, your assets, and send you to prison .for not keeping books. 4 'There is a wry cartoon around somewhere, showing an American of today talking to the picture of his Revolutionary ancestor, uGreat· great Grandfather, if you thought 'Taxation without Representation' was bad, you should see what it's like with representation!" That is too true to be comfortable. 4'The Organization to Repeal Fed­eral Income Taxes is a movement, headed by distinguished citizens, to restore the liberties of the Amer· ican people. Response to their lead· ership is mounting by the day. They are launching a new nation-wide program to organize chapters in every state. The objective is to get two-thirds of the state legislatures to demand that the Congress sub­mit to the states the proposal for repeal of this tax. Your member· ship and support are needed. Four states, Louisiana, Texas, Nevada, and Wyoming have passed the pro­posal. Others are now considering it. There must be a ground swell of grass roots support or the move· ment will fail, and our doom is in­evitable!" When Corruption Thrives At The Top Breakdown In Public Morals Inevitable If, as an American, you are amazed that the crime rate in the United States, including juvenile delinquency, is increasing at an alarming and unbelievable rate, perhaps the information in a re­cent press release with a Washing­ton date-line may be enlightening. This press release revealed that the House Appropriations Commit· tee had discovered that the mili· tary services have been ''padding" their requests for funds by nearly $20,000,000.00 per year. A secret investigation by that Committee brought out that the Defense Department in its budget for the last two years had asked for funds for 32,000 more housing units than existed. The Committee also revealed that both the Navy and Marine Corps put in separate requests for funds for the upkeep of the same 6,285 housing units. And all three services requested funds to operate and maintain 14,· 000 housing units for which up­keep had already been paid out of other funds. Of course nothing will be done about it because, since the transi­tion from a Free Republic to a Socialist State, the American gov­erning system is becoming so steeped in corrupt and dishonest practices that the matter will prob­ably be laughed off. In fact, the Committee referred to the whole thing as a "Comedy of Errors." To hard-pressed taxpayers, however, the misapplication of millions of dollars should not be funny. At any rate, with dishonesty in government rampant, is it surpris­ing that public crime and juvenile delinquency is increasing faster than the law can cope with it? No nation is stronger than its leaders and when morality breaks down at the top, a weakened moral fiber of the people is the inevitable result. Otto Pre min g e r, Hollywood movie producer, with all of the ar· rogance of some of the characters he has portrayed on the screen in his acting days, announced in the press recently that he had no apol­ogy for having hired Dalton Trum~ bo, cited as a member of Com· munist fronts, to write uExodus" and that he would do the same thing if he had it all to do over. For some reason, defenders of Communists seem to be getting bolder and more assured these days. We wonder what is behind their cockiness and their impudent manner when discussing the sub· ject. "Wh-en the House of Represent~ atives voted overwhelmingly for i~:O ax~~f~~!:!i~~:::~:~:euan~:n;~l~:! two or three voted with him, don't you imagine James Roosevelt was humiliated, embarrassed and ashamed at his poor showing?" ;;;r!~es a subscriber from Minneap: ~ No, we don't imagine that he was in the least humiliated, em .. barrassed or ashamed.

Roosevelt took them to his bosom by extending recog .. nition to that uncivilized nation and for as long as he lived, he was putty in the hands of Stalin. ~ And during her husband's tenure of the White House, Eleanor Roose· velt's partiality to the Soviets was obvious to all who had eyes to see and brains to reason. The joint l was always jumping with young Communists who overflowed the , house and spilled out over the lawn ' and she was among the very first ~~~h~~~1~n~yn~~~~~\~n~h~n~m;~~: \ ~i:'.1~nr~cf.;a~~l~~i~.oscow's llegen-i Few suspected Communist agents ever ran afoul of the law or faced exposure that she did not rush into print and defend them with all the prestige and influence which her position gave her and if repeated charges that she be· longed to some forty-five Com· munist fronts feazed her, she gave no public evidence of it. So, rather than feeling humili· ated, embarrassed and ashamed that he was so soundly trounced in his efforts to help the Com­munist cause by stopping all in .. vestigation into the matter, we imagine that James Roosevelt takes comfort in the fact that he fought a good fight in defense of a philos­ophy in which he believes and that his reward will come in the knowl· edge ·that he will continue to be the idol of pimply·faced Reds on the campus of every Liberal Amer .. ican college. Those who believe in heredity should perhaps feel more sympathy than scorn for a man who is a vic· tim of his parents' ideological be· liefs, and who imbibed his Marxist views around the family hearth• stone. "We're a young group and we're going to take over" - Little Bro· ther Bobby Kennedy. John F. Kennedy said during the campaign last Fall that, if elected, he was "going to pick up where FOR left off". And FOR left off just short of a Socialist dictator· ship.

The Justice Department on March 15 asserted that Federal courts have the Constitutional pow~ er to force reapportionment of rural~dominated State Legislatures. What part of the Constitution vests this authority in Federat courts was not pointed out and we are unable to find it. But who are It was made to appear that the we to interpret the Constitution Communists were being generous under the modern conception of J>::~~e~~3~a~~i~~n~~!Ywhn0~e~~aes; this great document?

In Washington, it was suggested that the President had made some concession to secure the release of the men but when newsmen at his first press conference tried to pry this information out of him, he skillfully evaded a direct reply. There is little doubt in the minds of many that some promise was made to Khrushchev for the arch criminal in the Kremlin would not otherwise have freed the flyers. It Is believed that the President agreed there would not be any more U-2 flights over Russia for the present. Recently in a Sunday magazine supplement there was a long article which said that old crock churns are being collected and are now considered as antiques of priceless value. There was an effort made to explain this phenomenon but we suspect that is a form of nostalgia for things as they used to be. In this Brave New World of ours, we have discarded moral values an4 have set up pseudo standards under which civilization is gradually' crumbling, and perhaps this return to the churn is merely an uncon­scious clutching back towards cus­toms and institutions which were wholesome, substantial and solid. It could be. Loud-talking left-wingers in Congress are bragging on their "victory" in the Rules Committee packing which they hope will mean clear sailing for Marxist legisla­tion. The two new so-called dem­ocratic members are already smirched with the stigma which is implied in the assumption that they will vote right down the line when Mr. Sam cracks the whip. No man's vote should be subsidized in ad· vance of consideration of the mea­sure on which he will be called to pass judgment. Legislatures are 11subverting re­sponsible State government," fail­ing to meet pressing urban needs and discriminating against city people on matters of taxation by their failure to change voting dis­tricts to meet shifts in population, the Solicitor General said. In our ignorance, we thought reapportionment was the sole re­sponsibility of State Legislatures who could act in the matter ac~ cording to their own wishes and could reapportion if they saw fit or refuse to do so if they so de­sired. But the Solicitor General says it's not that way at all and tha Federal judges can do tlie JO i legislatures fail to act. Perhaps the American people should have been prepared for this in view of much propaganda on the subject in recent months, in which it has been claimed that cities were being discriminated against. And only the night before the announcement by the Solicitor General, a big television broadcast portrayed how the various State Legislatures were operating against the interests of "urban" popula­tions. Of course the overall objective is to give more power to big cities for it is in these areas that Liberal sentiment abounds and it is this in­fluence that is needed to bolster sentiment for Socialist legislation. Any way, another gap may soon be closed between Federal and State governments and the all-pow­erful Federal State assume author­ity that was undreamed of when Constitutional Government pre­vailed in the United States. There are three important events on which the American people are entitled to have full information because these three events bear heavily on the Communist Con­spiracy against the United States and who is behind it. But this in­formation will never be forthcom­ing because it would be too re­vealing of treason in high places. These three events were the death of Count Bernadette in the Spring of 1948, the promotion of Peress and the murder of Paul Bang-Jen­sen. The American people may speculate and guess about what happened in these three cases but they will never know the truth. To Kill An Octopus Shoot Him Squarely Between The Eyes (Father Ginder in the Sunday Visitor) When a skin-diver is attacked by an octopus, he is a fool if he tries to go at the thing one tentacle after another: first, the tentacle around his chest, then the one around his right thigh, hoping eventually to cut himself free. No, what he must do is to go for the head-plunge that knife between the eyes, in and out, a dozen times, for if he can finish that off, he has put the whole animal out of commission. I have just finished reading-to me it seems-for the thousandth time in the last 16 years, the same message framed this time in words for Reader's Digest by Gen. Carlos P. Romulos, Philippine ambassador to the United States. Entitled "America, Wake Up!", it is sum­marized in the editors• blurb: 11A wise and loyal friend of the United States warns us: The cold war is real war . .. It is far later than we know ... The Communists can win without changing their tactics ... We cannot win without changing ours ... We must assume the offensive ... We dare not stand still ... To do so is to continue to lose ground. This is a stern and urgent appeal. It is one that no American can afford to ignore." Our pr nc pal goal ln fighting this war is to cut off the head of the octopus that threatens us, by overthrowing Khrushchev and all the bloody crew that connive with him in enslaving so much of the world. Why do we let ourselves be dis­tracted by Berlin, Laos, or the Con­go? Why not go straight for the jugular? Why not organize and fi­nance underground movements from the Black Sea all the way up to the Baltic, aimed at creating un­rest, eventual revolution, and final liberation of the captive nations? It is even easier than it sounds, for despite the bland assurances of the Liberal press, the captive peoples are wretchedly unhappy and Khrushchev each day receives fresh proof that he cannot trust even his own soldiers. During World War II, an esti­mated 350,000 Communist troops deserted and went over to the =~~~fc;n!ft~~~~~~~i;ie~f h:~o~~~~g~ who had fled from Russia had to be rounded up for return at bayo­net point. (This was known as uoperation Keelhaul." They were American and British bayonets wielded by American and British soldiers un­der orders from "higher author­ity.") Thousands of these people slash· ed their own wrists rather than face return to the Soviet Paradise. During the Hungarian battle for freedom a few years ago, more than 10,000 Red soldiers crossed over to the revolutionaries. Buda­pest had to be retaken by forces rushed in from Mongolia. (Franco wanted to fly in troops and supplies for the Freedom This church group which claims a membership of between 35 and 40 million and which concerns it­self with practically every subject on earth except religion, spent most of its time at Syracuse dis· cussing and reading papers on birth control, going into the most inti­mate details of the matter and leaving little to the imagination. In the end they passed a resolu· tion favoring what they called "family-planning" after having ex· hausted all phases and angles of a subject which has always been largely considered as an intimate matter between husband and wife. Much speculation has been in­dulged in as to why so much time is devoted by these old duffers to a subject which is academic in their own cases at least. Irreverent observers have suggested that they must get a vicarious kick out of tossing the matter back and forth under the pretense that they are undertaking to decide it in the in· terest of society at large. The National Council is a po­tentially powerful organization, heavily financed and capable of rendering service. If it would only quit messing with things that are none of its business and would en­list its boasted 35 or 40 million members in fighting Communism, for a change, the enemy would be whipped in no time at all. Idiocy gone to seed: We are told that, as individuals, we cannot pur­chase gold in foreign lands and at the same time that we must con­tinue giving away billions of our tax dollars to foreigners who may exchange them for American gold. Fighters, and Vienna was all set to agree that they could fly over Austrian territory, until a stiff note arrived from our State Department forbidding it.) The daily leakage from East Germany to the free world is well known-at least 300 a day. Despite the rather copious Foreign Aid which we American taxpayers have put at his disposal, Tito seems un­able to hold the thousands fleeing each year from his slave state into Italy and Austria. In a surprisingly revealing state­ment to his Chinese satraps, Khru­shchev admitted recently that, "It would be wrong for Communism to test the stability of Capitalism by force. The people would never understand and would never sup­port those who took it into their heads to act this way." His real meaning, as interpreted by one expert: "We are but a hand­ful holding, only by terror, millions in subjection, who can never be induced to use arms to impose the horror and slavery they are exper­iencing on the rest of the world. Therefore, if we are to succeed, we must, above all, maintain peace and subjugate the rest of the world by subversion.'"

I'm for allowing gangsters ar· rested while in peaceful, private assembly like those in Appalachin, N.Y., the same Constitutional im .. munities as are granted our Com· munist citizen criminals.

Yet other known criminals, Commu· nists dedicated to the overthrow of our country, are untouchable! If touched, our touched Supreme Court turns 'em loose. I'm for replacing politicians who vote for whatever their constitu· ents want, right or wrong, with voting machines. This would be a real economy. And in many cases the voting machine would give us better representation. For publish· ing, periodically, the salaries and expense accounts of public em· ployees.

They made the trains run on time, went "forward" to unheard of pro· duction goals. I'm for moral law above expediency. For practicing what you preach. As National Cot­ton Council's Ed Lipscomb says, "Just as the temperance lecturer who gets drunk is a greater lia· bility to his cause than is the ad· mitted barfly, so the businessman who preaches free enterprise while he participates in programs of po· litical intervention is a greater lia· bility than the admitted Socialist." For making radio and TV sta· tions who're still fighting Nazism and Fascism give "equal time" to fighting the "New Frontier"-So­cialism- Communism. For making display of the hammer and sickle an equal crime with display of the swastika. For according Fascists equal "human rights" with Com· munists. For revival of the old slogan: "Buy American." And for adding: "Be American, Think Amer .. ican, Act American." For revising Hull's outdated Reciprocal Trade Agreements to make our foreign trade really reciprocal. For trading to win, not to lose. For changing government policies which have ruined or are ruining our watch, coal, textile, glass, cutlery, steel, china ware (87 per cent of the china­ware bought in the U.S. last year was produced by foreign countries) and many other industries. I'm for halting the flight of American in­vestment capital from this country by offering more freedom and a better deal at home. We've given two million jobs to foreign friends and enemies with the $21 billion we've put into foreign factories since 1945. I'm for "free trade" with the world, just as soon as we regain our freedoms at home-end· ing union more pay-less work rack· eteering, confiscatory taxation and federal strangulation of free enter· prise. I'm for a notation on each of Drew Pearson's columns showing what he scored on the lie detector test for that day's column. I'm for the right to be prejudiced.

Why can't they be honest and admit that they are merely carry· ing out Kremlin instructions and quit their hypocritical insistence that they are acting in accord with "Christian Principles?" We know that our national lead .. ers are not conscious enemies of the American Republic and so the only conclusion we can reach is that they are unwitting dupes of those who are. Otherwise they, would occasionally, and in the law of averages, adopt policies or pass legislation designed to aid the citi· zen and protect the internal se .. curity of this country without any regard whatever for the interest and welfare of people of other lands. Here are the names of the mem· bers of the House of Representa­tives who voted against an ap• propriation to continue the investi· gations of the Un-American Activi· ti~s Committee of Congress and thereby went on record as syrnpa· thetic to Communist infiltration of the United States: James Roosevelt ~~ :J:~f~~:~: ~\~~a~r!~t~f RJ':O~ i gon, William Ashley of Ohio, Rob­ert Kastenmeier, Wisconsin and Barrett O'Hara of Illinois. We won· der how they can go to sleep at night or how they can look their fellowmen in the face. Pogo I 'Americans Can Take New Hope In Plan To 'Eliminate Tyranny' ) In his call for a ten~year plan to "spread ho:;>e. freedom and a bet~er life throughout the Western H~misphere" and in which he called en Latin America to join, the Pres~ ident promised to "eliminate tyran­ny from a hemisphere in which it has no rightful place." I This statement is one of the most encouraging to emerge from the White House since the new ad­ministration came to power for if the President's new plan really in­tends to eliminate "tyranny from the Western Hemisphere" that means that the elimination will have to begin in this country, to be consistent. Since the tyranny of the Supreme Court and the Federal judiciary over the Sovereign States of the Union is all but total, and has robbed those States of their Con­stitutional Rights to conduct their own affairs, the President's plan to eliminate tyranny would seem to offer hope that the States may regain the authority conferred on them by the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution but of which they have been robbed through the ex­ercise of a measure of tyranny which is unprecedented in the his­tory of the Republic. The Pre•ident indicated that he would start off the Latin American program by spending $500,000,000 as soon as Congress votes it which of couse seems like a lot of money to a nation which is already nearly $300,000,000,000.00 in debt but if its objectives are accomplished and tyranny is eliminated in all sec­tions of the Western Hemisphere, including the United States, it would seem to us to be money well spent.

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Just How 'Conservative' Are Our Members Of Congress From The South? The people of the South have al­ways had great respect for South­ern members of the House and Senate and especially with regard to the issues of segregation and civil rights although deploring their Socialistic positions on other vital­ly important matters in which they vote with Liberals from the North and East. But more and more there is com­ing to be some doubt of their sincerity in racial matters especial~ ly in view of the fact that all mem­bers of Southern delegations with the exception of William Colmer and John Bell Williams of Missis­sippi and possibly one or two others went right down the line for Ken­nedy's championship of racial mix­ing on all levels. When they had the opportunity to support the Independent Elec· tors plan and perhaps throw the election into the House of Repre­sentatives but chose instead to support a known enemy of the South and its racial policies, their defense of segregation became more academic than actual, it is being argued. The time to stop Kennedy in his assault on the racial customs of the South, it is pointed out, was during the campaign and Southern representatives had the alternative of the Independent Electors plan in which they refused to cooperate. To support him in the campaign and defy him now may be good New Frontier politics and an ef­fective way of keeping their party Ninth World Wonder The Ancients listed seven wond­ers of the world-the Pyramids, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Phidias' Statue of Zeus, the Temple of Ephesus, the Tomb of Mausolus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Pharos of Alexandria. Now the New Haven, (Mo.) Leader, suggests that two additional wonders be added-"The American Economic System" and "Lack of Understand· ing About How It Operates." That economic system h a s brought us unprecedented material benefits-and, a degree of person .. at freedom never before experienc­ed in organized society. But the Leader says: "The ninth wonder of the world might be de­scribed as an apparent willingness of the American people to give up this system because of a lack of appreciation and understanding of how the system works .•• there is an increasing dependency upon the very thing (Government) which leads to socialism, restricts our freedom, and hinders the incentive which made this country success .. ful." The history of our time has been a sorry record of the destruction of freedom and of human rights and privileges by all-powerful gov· ernments. We have seen it the world around. Yet, step by step, we have been beguiled down an ominously similar path. It isn't too late to turn back and to limit gov· ernment to powers which only gov­ernment can exercise. But that turning can't be delayed too long. -The Fort Worth Recorder. record straight, but it is more and more becoming recognized as cow .. ardly surrender of principle to ex .. pediency. Also the way the confirmation of Robert C. Weaver, Negro ap­pointee for Housing Administrator and strong advocate of racially mixed housing projects. was handled does not set well with many Southerners now that sev­eral incidents in connection with that affair are leaking out. A Red New York weekly news­paper has told boastfully of "strat­egy meetings" held in advance of the vote on Weaver's confirmation attended by the nominee and sev­eral senators, including two South­erners, in which it was agreed that lawmakers from the South be al­lowed to blow off steam and op­pose Weaver "for the record" after which the confirmation would pro .. ceed. Such log-rolling and dirty pool has caused expressions of doubt as to whether representatives of the South actually are concerned in preventing racial mixing or are more interested in writing a record which will aid in their election the next time they are up. Also their Liberal attitude on major Socialistic issues in which they vote with the CIO-PAC and Americans for Democratic Action, as revealed by the ACA Index, is causing increasing comment among voters q_f the South whose concep­tion of Conservatism means not only the repudiation of integration but of all other Communist· inspired proposals as well. Too, the President's unforgiv­able action in appointing his own integration-conscious little brother as attorney general of the United States was upheld by Southern senators, at least one of whom blatted all over the Senate about how well qualified Robert Ken­nedy was for the job. This, of course, is not true and the senator knew when he said it that it was not true. Young Ken .. nedy's only experience as a prose­cutor was as counsel for a Senate rackets committee in which he vig­orously exposed one union rack­eteer and just as vigorously pro .. tected another who was later to render valuable service to Jack Kennedy in his campaign for Pres­ident. Now that young Robert Is be· ginning to issue injunctions against Southern officials to prevent them from running their own schools, this same senator will probably make headlines in opposition but his protests will no longer make sense to informed citizens of the South. What the South needs In the United States Senate is more Harry F. Byrds and in the House more Bruce Algers. These level-headed statesmen not only vote against integration and so-called civil rights but against all other Communist-sparked pro­posals as well. Loyalty to the U nlted Nations is treason to the United States. March, 1961 Communist Attack On Spain And Portuqal To Get Under Way In the February edition of the Southern Conservative we predict­ed Portugal and Spain would be the next subjects of attack by World Communism and said in part: Pr~~f: ~~tc;:~~:a~~o~~o ~~ia~~~ skids because he is anti-Commu­nist dictator .... Franco being an all-out anti-Communist will prob­ably be the next man up and if our State Department runs true to form, it will help bowl him over." On March 13th a New York weekly newspaper which promotes the Communist line carried a front page article titled: "Committee for a Democratic Spain." Officers of the committee include some of those whose names are familiar to Americans from having appeared in the files of committees investi­gating un-American activities. This committee was quoted as saying in part: "Throughout Franco Spain there are significant stirrings of revolt. Important groups simi­lar to this committee are active in Great Britain. France and Latin America .... We intend close liai­son and cooperation with all these efforts. We greet the recent up­surge of resistance to Franco's fel­low- dictator Salazar in neighbor­ing Portugal as part of the irresist· ible drive for the elimination of dictators from the entire Iberian Peninsula." The committee announces that it is its intention "to make the 26th anniversary of the beginning of the Spanish Civil War, which occurs on July 19, 1961, a special period of rededication to the free­dom of the Spanish people." We don't especially relish being a prophet of doom but the way in which our predictions concerning coming events materialize is dis­concerting even to us. Perhaps our ability to hit the hull's eye so fre­quently is because we dwell on the subject of World Communist prop­aganda and have learned to anti .. cipate the direction it will take. American textile industry lead­ers told a committee of Congress that unless the low-cost import flood of textiles to this country is sotfo pped they are either "going out business or take their business out of the United States." Unfor .. tunately, they will probably find that Congress couldn't care less if they move their factories abroad. After all, we are Ooe-Worlders, we are, and we don't care any more about the welfare of an American manufacturer than we do about that of one in Hindustan. Dean Rusk, the new Secretary of State, is quoted as having implied in a 1952 Rockefeller Foundation Report that if this country did not recognize Red China it might bring on a "color war." We have news for the gentleman in the striped pants. The "color war" is already on. It was started at the Bandung Conference, April 18, 1955, in In­donesia. And we have some more news. The white race is losing the "color war," just as it was intended to do. "It was planned that way.''
