Transcript BULK RATE U. S. Postage PAID Fort Worth, Texas THE SOUTHERN tJOl~SERVATiVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. II FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JANUARY, 1960 No. I P 0 LE THEM EL E MUS RESCUE T E R - I F OM CORR PT P l TICI Washington Will Have To T ink Hard To Beat This Thoughtful Americans have long contended that Washington is engaged in more fool projects which do not come within the scope of a government's jurisdiction than any other locality on earth but now they are not so sure. France has gone us one better and has come up with a honey which holds the record at least until our great leaders dream up some­thifl: g to top that nation's new venture in Social Service. Whereas in this country our statesmen have been content to follow the teachings of Karl Marx and have succeeded in re-distributing the wealth of ~the citizens, the DeGaullist government has set out to re­distribute the sex appeal of its women which - in defiance of all recog­nized economic and social considerations - seems to be concentrated in the city of Paris. The motive behind this bizarre and amazing governmental under­taking lies in the fact that thousands of young French bucks from the countryside flock into Paris each year looking not only for jobs but for wives (or girl friends) to the extent that there is a serious population problem in that city and an alarming manpower shortage in the rural areas. Drastic action in the matter, however, is attributable to the country gals of France who, remembering the old World War I song: "How you goin' to keep 'em down on the farm after they've seen Paree", got together and posed this question to French government leaders: "What do the dames in Paris have that we ain't got?" There is no record that the answer was spelled out for them in detail but, at any rate, whatever it is, the French statesmen then and there decided to effect a more equitable distribution of it by making it available to the farmers' daughters. Accordingly, it has been officially announced that the French Min­istry of Labor is sending out qualified experts on the subject into the provinces to give necessary instruction to timid maidens in the agricul­tural districts which will not only enable them to get their man but to hold him when interest lags and his thoughts stray wistfully toward gay Paree. A Ministry official in an interview with an American press repre­sentative explained that Parisian women "do more with what they have" than any others on earth. Although he said this boastfully, he and his colleagues apparently have decided that this probably involves unfair practices on the part of female Parisiennes and constitutes a type of discrimination against their underprivileged sisters on the farm which the· new Social Experi­ment is hoped to correct. French social scientists insist that this is merely a temporary ex­cursion into the realms of political psychology but we suspect that it is the beginning of a ·long-range program for the expansion and develop­ment of what many consider the chief natural resource of the French capital. Any man of wealth who meekly _ gives up ninety-one percent of his income without loud, vigorous and public protest of su~h outrage is a fifth-rate American and unworthy of citizenship in the great Repub­lic of his birth. This tru,th is self-evident: Sub­versive propaganda cannot take root in a strong mind and only weaklings are influenced by the enemies of their country. The stealthy but steady march toward. National Social .. ism by members of the American Congress will receive added impetus during 1960 since it is an election· year and scheming lawmakers will offer every tempting Marxian device in their bag of tricks to snare the nee .. essary votes to keep themselves in office. By this time, if the American people have learned anything cit all, they have discovered that there is no such thing as hon·or among political thieves. They have found to their sorrow that a candidate will lie his way into office and then start selling out the taxpayers before the ink is dry on the ballots which elected him. As so many of us have tried hard and. long to hammer into the heads of the electorate, it is only the American people themselves who can save the Republic and keep it from going on tne rocks of National Socaalism and drifting from there into a Communist-controlled One-World -government. In preparation for the superhuman task before them, all good citizens should start the New Year with earnest, heart-felt resolutions which they intend to keep and which should be set down in cold type and placed before them in order that these pledges may be renewed from time to time throughout the year: In atonement for my apathy, indifference and unconcern over the mass treason which has been rampant in Washington for a quarter century, I hereby assert my awakening and re-activation as a citi:en of the great country in which God gave me the rare privilege of bemg born. From this day forward, I resolve to become an aggressive, rather than a robot, American and to hereafter vigorously defend my inherent rights and freedoms which are being taken from me by those elected, paid and sworn to preserve and defend them. . I hereby resolve to come out of the Fool's Paradise where I have been residing and to face courageously the hard realities of a situation in which my country is the target of both foreign and domestic enemies of Constitutional Government and of Christian civilization and to.- do my utmost to defeat them on every level. In preparation for the discharge of my neglected duties as a citizen, I resolve to re-read and study the Constitution of the United States in order to find out for my~elf how much violence our elected an<;! appoint­ed officials in Washington have done to this matchless Charter of Human Freedom in efforts to appease minority groups and subversive elements whose objective is to overthrow the American government. In deference to the memory of the great patriots who founded and fought for this Republic in its early and bitter battle for independence, I resolve to devote my full energy and resources toward keeping this priceless legacy they bestowed on me which they set up and handed down to me without effort or sacrifice on my part. As a primary step in ·exercising responsible citizenship, I resolve to re-dedicate myself to the theory once prevalent in this country to the effect that in government there is no substitute for honesty, thrift and integrity and to demand of my representatives in Washington that, as custodians of the taxpayers' money, they use the same measure of caution, judgment and economy that they exercise in the expenditure of their own private funds. · (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It-The Southern Conservative Says - It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Janu&ry, 1960 we Can Tolerate A Liberal, TAXPAYERS SHOULD START POT BOILING What Khrushchev's Trip Cost But We Despise A Hypocrite AND THROW ANOTHER BOSTON TEA PARTY Ta:!~!e~~~ti!~~~:~~:sinG~~!!.

Young Thugs Roam Some Questions For Attorney W.ashinaton Streets General William P. Rogers like Wild Animals Is it permissible for an humble taxpayer to ask the amount of the expense involved in the nine­month's vigorous investigation you made of the death of a Negro rapist in Mississippi? Is there any record of a similar amount of money and time devoted to running down any Negro rapist in other cases whom Southern law officers were unable to apprehend? Since the Federal government has preempted this field, are you co­operating with Congress in the passage of legislation which will make the penalty more severe for perpetrators of this bestial crime? The only concrete results of the President's grand tour to India, France, Italy and eight other coun­tries during December, so far as we can see, is that it pulled the rug out from under the New Deal presidential aspirants and put an awful crimp in the tail of the Democratic jackass. By projecting himself as the world's great man of peace, good will and brother­hood, he snagged and held the bright spotlight and, publicity­wise, left the Democrats to strug­gle for space in the dul! glow of a tallow candle. From a subscriber in Massa­chusetts: "Congratulations on your work, showing your penetrating understanding of the situation, your courage and unswerving loy­alty to these beloved United States." In the city of Washington, D.C., which the President said would be an "example to the nation" in the matter of forced integration of the races, the local Police Department has imported a veteran Scotland Yard sergeant to help round up teenage hoodlums, mostly colored, who roam the capital city like wild animals in the jungle. Teenage crime there is at an aU-time high. The Scotland Yard official, Ter­rance P. Cahill, who spent 27 years on the London Police Force, will train dogs to be used in tracking down and seizing the young crimi4 nals who have proved too numer4 ous and evasive for Washington po­lice to handle. This drastic action by Washing­ton officials is said to have been inspired by the fact that the na­tion's capital is being overrun by colored people, including a strong criminal element while white peo­ple are moving away from that city by the thousands. Integration, of course, is largely responsible for conditions there as everywhere else where this ignoble experiment has been launched on a wholesale scale. Negroes regard the new arrangement as a license to commit every crime in the calen­dar. The Communists who started the integration propaganda were famil­iar with Negro psychology and not only expected this reaction but were glad to see it as it added to the confusion and chaos which was the objective of their campaign. Brainless do-gooders, however, who followed along with the inte­gration program without realizing the potential danger, are said in many cases to be greatly alarmed over what they have done. We'll bet a twenty-five cent dol4 Jar that the latter will be the case for while Soviet leaders are vi14 lains, they're not fools and they don't throw money around like it was confetti. People Themselves-'co~~~~·~ tom Since it is common knowledge that billions of dollars voted by Congress in the name of foreign aid for the alleged relief of suffering and under-privileged humanity in alien countries has been used to build luxury hotels, night clubs and gambling dens or has been deliberately stolen by those administering such funds, I hereby resolve that I will work and vote against the re-election of any member of my Congression­al delegation who votes for measures to confiscate the hard-earned money of the American people and re-distribute it among corrupt and chiseling heads of foreign governments. Realizing that the taxing power of Congress is being so flagrantly abused as to constitute a national disgrace and that the only way that the greed of tax-grabbers in Washington can be curbed is through repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, I resolve to demand of my representatives in the State Legislature that they join with Texas and Wyoming in memorializing Congress to submit such repeal amendment. In view of the fact that Christian Churches in the United States are the prime targets of World Communism which has been successful in infiltrating leading pulpits of the nation and indoctrinating many renowned ministers, I resolve to listen closely to the sermons of my own pa~tor and in the event I find he has succumbed to this vile propaganda, to refuse to contribute another dime to the upkeep of that church until he has been removed and replaced by an authentic servant of God. In my grass roots political action, I resolve to talk with as many delegates to the national convention of my party as possible and en­deavor to persuade them not to be influenced by rigged popularity polls and phony appeals for support of favorite sons and will remind them that political sex appeal cannot pinch-hit for principle in the matter of selecting a potential occupant of the White House. And finally, if the race develops into a contest at the general elec­tion between two-dyed·in-the-wool Internationalists with divided loyal­ty to the American Flag and the Republic for which it stands, I resolve to refuse to vote for either even if I am compelled to write in the name of an American patriot of my own choosing instead.

Up As World Leaders~ Yet Senator John Williams, Republican senator from Delaware, has been singing like a canary for years about the cheating, stealing and general corruption which prevails as a result of the passage of ill-advised and unconstitutional laws, but he doesn't get anywhere. . ~is colleagues listen to him, make clucking noises of distress at h1s disclosures and then go on passing legislation that is even worse. The senator's latest target is the Soil Bank which was set up as responsible agricultural organizations throughout the country were pleading with Congress to stand aside, get out of the way and let the farmers run their own business. The Soil Bank is another Washington racket which projects the modern theory of paying people not to work. It is a sort of rural version of the unemployment compensation law and, compared to it, Henry Wallace's screwball farm program which called for the mass slaughter of pregnant sows, was a masterpiece in statesmanship and legislative achievement. While there was widespread opposition to the Soil Bank plan in the beginning, homy-handed sons of toil in the furrow soon proved that they are just as quick in recognizing a ·fast buck when they see it float­ing around as any city slicker in town. The plan provides a $5,000 limit which shall be paid to any one farm family for taking their land out of production but Senator Williams turned up one sharp old clodhopper who divided up his farm between several children under twelve years of age each of whom got into the act and who will collect an aggregate of $165,000 during the ten years of their contract with the government. Laying aside all questions of immorality, dishonesty and corrupt practices, we've got to admit that these smart kids are not going to run short on lollipop money for a long time to come. And yet, an honest, God-fearing farmer like Stanley Yankus of Michigan was run out of the country because he refused to participate in this artificial and crook· ed attempt to repeal the law of nature and manipulate human freedom. Being a conscientious public servant. Senator Williams will prob­ably keep on exposing this type of legalized theft of taxpayers' money, but members of Congress will pay no more attention to his disclosures than they do to the whistling wind which rustles through their pants as they descend the front steps each day after seriously pondering the mighty problems of State. We sympathize with the senator for his excellent, but futile, gestures toward honesty in _government but he is no more to be pitied than Congressman Francis J. Walter whose Committee on Un·American Ac· tivities has expossed to public view hundreds of dirty Communist con .. spirators against the American government only to have the testimony he so painstakingly developed either printed. filed away and forgotten or cancelled out and nullified by Supreme Court rulings.

On page 113 of this same document, Aaron Copland is shown as having signed a petition put out by that outfit asking for the discontinuation of the Dies Committee. On page 262 of that same report, appears this description of the In­dependent Citizens Committee of the Arts, Sciences and Professions: "This Communist front grew out of the Independent Voters Commit· tee of the Arts and Sciences." On that same page Aaron Copland is shown as having his name on the letterhead of that organization. On page 310 of that report ap­pears this description of the Musi­cians Congress Committee: "This front was organized for the purpose of 'involving' non-Communist mu­sicians in Communist activities". On page 316 of the same report Aaron Copland is listed as a mem· ber of the General Board of the Musicians Congress Committee. On page 330 of this document appears this statement: "The Peo­ples Daily World (official Commun­ist organ) for February 27, 1948, From Fullerton, California: aYour Tenth Anniversary edition, as all of them, is terrific and I commend you for being able to continue this battle against tre­mendous odds for ten years." reports that the Communist front for writers, Artists and Musicians, the National Institute of Arts and Letters denounced the Thomas Committee of Congress for investi; gating Un·American Activities in America." On that same page, among a long list of hard·core pro·Communists, appears the name of Aaron Copland as a signer of the letter denouncing the Thomas Com· mittee. Anyone who wants to pursue the matter further will find twenty­seven such listings in the Fifth Re­port Un-American Activities in Cat .. ifornia, 1949 and in Appendix IX.

THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE SEGREGATION FORCES WIN RESOUNDING VICTORY IN THE STATE OF LOUISIANA The great State of Louisiana has just passed through a hectic . gubernatorial election in which the Long machine was banished. and Jimmy Davis, governor of that State from 1944 to 1948, was the VICtor. Davis' opponent in the run-off was deLesseps ~orrison, mayor of New Orleans who was making his second try for the JOb. The overshadowing issue was segregation of the races and while both Davis and Morrison came out for this policy, Morrison's attitude was half·hearted while Davis made his position clear and in no uncertain terms against integration. The attitude of certain religious leaders in New Orleans who have undertaken to force integration on the people of Louisiana is claimed to have contributed to the defeat of Morrison who tried, more or less, to ride the fence in the hope of attracting "moderates" to his support. There was a strong belief on the part of voters generally that if Morri~ son were elected, his opposition to integration would melt away in the face of persuasion and pressure from powerful New Orleans groups. The outstanding champion of States Rights and segregation, William Rainach, was eliminated in the first primary in December due to the fact that some half dozen other candidates in the race also claimed to be conservatives thereby splitting the vote and defeating him. This is an old Commie trick which is so ancient that it has whiskers but it never fails to work. However Jimmy Davis, it is expected, will prove equally opposed to Federal intervention in the affairs of the Sovereign States and will throw all his strength toward keeping segregation in Louisiana public schools. We never take sides in any political campaign or endorse any candidate for office and limit our discussions to principles but now that it is over, we are glad Jimmy Davis won instead of deLesseps Morrison for two reasons: First, because of his reputation as a spender, Morrison would have probably turned out to be a Soapy Williams with a Southern accent and, second, because any candidate who does not face integra· tion propaganda head·on and recognize it as one of Moscow's chief weapons in the fight to take over the United States, is not qualified to be governor of Louisiana or any other American State. There are some sociological derelicts, even in the South, who hold that defense of segregation of the races constitutes "hate-mongering." Under that definition, "hate-mongers" are now in the saddle in Louisiana. Georgian Surprised At _..:...M~ay__,th:...:e:.:_ir -=-tri::..:be__,il.::.'cr:.:::ea.:.:..:se..:.... ---------- Infiltration Of SMU PRESIDENT'S FINAL TERM IS DEVOTED A good friend of our paper in Atlanta, Georgia, an attorney, was greatly disturbed recently when he read in a magazine article that leftists had entrenched themselves in Southern Methodist University at Dallas. He wrote us as follows: "This is a very great surprise to me in view of the fact that this university is in the South, is in Dallas and in Texas which I thought was impregnable." We hate to disillusion our good friend but Texas, and even Dallas, have their share of Reds and as to the entrenchment of leftists at SMU and other educational institutions in the State, there's nothing new about that. They're swarming with leftists who seem to c.rawl out of the woodwork. Hasn't our Atlanta friend ever heard • of the Dallas Council on World Affairs which has its base at SMU and which has brought almost every anti·anti-Communist to Dallas to lecture to students ex~ cept Alger Hiss. Hasn't he ever heard of the pres· ident of SMU who not only con­dones but cooperates with programs on which John Gates, former Com­munist editor of the Daily Worker is the principal speaker? Hasn't he ever heard of influen~ tial Dallas business men who insist on having Communist paintings displayed in the Dallas Art Mu­seum? Hasn't he ever heard of Dallas' TO PROMOTION OF WORLD GOVERNMENT As his term of office nears expi­ration, the President is more and more putting his cards on the table and showing his hand in the matter of his desire to see this country engulfed in a One·World govern­ment. Before he left for his eleven­country trip he came out publicly in a strong plea for the repeal of the Connally amendment to the act authorizing this country's par~ ticipation in the World Court. This amendment would leave to the United States the matter of de­ciding what are domestic problems and which are international ques­tions and, therefore subject to the jurisdiction of the World Court. Off-hand, it would seem that loy­al Americans would almost rise up en masse in protest against the suggestion that this amendment be repealed, but, incredibly, it was passed over as another suggestion for meeting conditions "in a chang~ ing world''. Think of having some World Methodist Bishop William C. Mar­tin who once served as head of the National Council of Churches and who has been largely instrumental in lining up Texas Methodism be~ hind Karl Marx' Social Gospel as opposed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and whose racial views co­incide almost one hundred per cent Court Judge, say from Liberia, In~ dbnesia or the Crown Colony of Singapore given authority to pass on matters vitally affecting the peo­ple of Georgia, Massachusetts or Montana. There was a time when such a proposal would have been sufficient basis for charges of im­peachment. The President painted a rosy pic· tur~ to Co.ngress of the great pros~ penty :Vh~ch the American people are enJoymg today and of more abundant good times just around the corner. Maybe he is right if we are to measure a nation's well·being in dollars and cents but this we know· that during his administration th~ foundation pillars of Constitutional Government have been materially weakened, States Rights and prop­erty rights have taken an awful beating and the distance between this once free Republic and a totaJi. tarian One-World State has been materiaHy shortened. with those of the Communist party? Dallas Is regarded very properly as the seat of Conservatism in Tex~ as probably because they continue to send the Honorable Bruce Alger one of the nation's soundest law: makers, to Congress but they also have their fair share of leftists liberals and other riff-raff and out: casts from humanity's backwash. January, 1960 Sound and Wholesome Advice To Teenagers (Montello, Wisconsin, Tribune) The following item was distrib­uted to every pupil in a Watertown (S.D.) school. It read as follows: Always we hear the plaintive cry of teenagers: "What can we do? Where can we go?" I can make some suggestions. Go home! Remove the storm windows. Paint the woodwork. Rake the leaves. Mow the lawn. Learn to cook. Scrub the floors. Repair the sink. Build a boat. Get a job. Help your pastor, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army. Assist the poor. Study your lessons. And when you're through-and not too tired -read a good book. Your parents do not owe you en~ tertainment. The world does not owe you a living. Your village does not owe you recreational facilities. You owe the world something. You owe it your time and energy, and your talents, so that no one will be at war or in poverty, or sick, or lonely again. • In plain simple words: Grow up; quit being a cry baby; get out o! your dream world: develop a back bone, not a wishbone; and start act­ing like a man or lady. I'm a parent. I'm tired of nursing, protecting, helpinl(, appealing, beg· ging, excusing, tolerating, denying myself needed comforts for your every whim and fancy, just because your selfish ego instead of common sense, dominates your personality and thinking. Segregation Does Not Mean Discrimination On the last day of the year, in keeping with our ten·year old cus· tom, we had a New Year office party attended only by friends hav· ing offices in the building where our paper has been located since the beginning. Pledges of friendship were renewed and hope was ex· pressed that these future events would be celebrated in a better world than that in which we now live.

January, 1960 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Pago I Record Disqualifies New York Senator From Participating In Civil Rights Legislaton Jacob Javits of New York is noted for his diminutive stature even in the United States Senate which does not enjoy the reputa­tion of having a preponderance of mental giants in its make-up. If Javits has one characteristic which stands out above another, it is his bitter, relentless and deep­seated hatred of the South, its peo­ple, its institutions and way of life. His aversion for this area of the American Republic is only exceed­ed by his contempt for the Consti­tution of the United States and es­pecially the Tenth Amendment which withholds from little jacka­napes who happen to be members of the Congress the right to inter­fere in the internal affairs of the Sovereign States. Javits is not content merely to let his hatred of the South seethe and fester in his own breast but constantly strives to inspire others with the same measure of antagon­ism toward a section of the coun­try which he regards as a perpetual disaster area for the colored ele­ment residing within its boundaries. During the Congressional recess he bounced and bobbed around among his foreign-born constitu­ents holding what he called "educa­tional seminars and forums" the purpose of which was to "marshal the sentiment of the State" behind the punitive Civil Rights bill he is introducing during the present ses­sion. In this bill he proposes to take away from the Sovereign States the right to hold their own elec­tions and would police every ballot box with a Federal snooper, pre­sumably a Negro, with the ultimate objective of beating the people of the South to their knees and sub­jecting them again to the humilia­tion, indignity and insults heaped upon them by his earlier counter­part, Thaddeus Stevens, during Re~ construction Days. Any member of the United States Senate is automatically due the re­spect to which his high office en­titles him but by his prejudicial actions, Javits has forfeited his claim to any consideration what­ever and we, as one humble and in· significant Southerner, hereby charge that he is totally unfit to assume leadership in any legisla­tive proposal involving Soviet de­signs against this country such as the Civil Rights Program is known to be. By his own admission in official records, Javits does not know what Communism is and does not recog­nize Communists even after associ· ating closely with them. This dis­qualifies him from participating in a program originating in Moscow and initiated for the announced purpose of stirring up racial dissen­sion and strife In the United States to the end that Communism may more easily strengthen its strangle· hold on this country. As we write, we have before us a transcript of Javits' testimony be~ fore a subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary on Wednesday, Septem-ber 5, 1956. · Dr. Bella Dodd who at one time was a high official in American Communist Party affairs, had in-formed the subcommittee that dur~ ing the time she was active in the Party Javits had come to her of­fice at 100 West 42nd Street in New York and at that time they discussed what district he might concentrate on in carrying out any activities in connection with his po­litical future. She also testified that Javits had associated with Frederick V. Field at that time United Nations editor on the Daily Worker, official Com­munist paper. The Committee also had information that Javits was r~~e~t~ifed :~t~n~r~~~:~~ a~~a~:;~~: ing together in her home in San Francisco Communist Party mem­bers, including Communist espion­age rings. Others with whom Javits was charged with having associa­ted were Max Yergan, David Hed­ley, Max Radin and others, all iden­tified as either being associated with the Communist Party or pro­moting the Communist cause. Javits' testimony was a master­piece in memory lapse and side­stepping which should be read by every American. It may be found in part 43, Scope of Soviet Activ­ity in the United States, Hearing before the Subcommittee to investi­gate the Administration of the In­ternal Security Act and other In­ternal Security Laws of the Com­mittee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, Eighty Fourth Con­gress, Second Session, September 5, 1956. Javits' performance was as slick as an eel swimming through a tub of castor oil and when he got though cleansing himself, he was pure as new fallen snow. ·He ad­mitted going to Doctor Dodd's of­fice but insisted that he did not have the faintest idea that she was a Communist although her picture had appeared in New York news­papers a few days before when she was shown as one of those presid­ing over the annual meeting of the American Communist Party. He said that he thought that Frederick V. Field was just a col­lege boy and Jmew nothing of his connections which makes him unique as there are very few per­sons in the United States who are not familiar with Field's service to the Communist cause. All the others he claimed he had just met casual~ ly and never dreamed they were Communists. If he went to dinners or parties in their ~ homes he made It clear that it was onl.v because someone invited him and he didn't know where he was going or why. We submit that any one who is so naive, trusting and gullible in dealing with Communists as this senator has confessed himself to be is certainly disqualified from even discussing, much less taking a leading part In handling, the Civil Rights program which any person with an iota of intelligence knows Is the brainchild of tough, experi­enced Communist revolutionaries. Only men of acumen, Intelligence and a thorough understanding of the Communist apparatus and its designs against the United States are qualified to discuss and dispose of legislation which holds such po­tentiality for danger to the rights and freedoms for which our fore­fathers fought and died. REDS ARE AGAIN OUT IN FULL CRY FOR FEDERAL AID TO EDUCATION Although the great majority of the American people are known to be unalterably opposed to Federal Aid to Education because for one reason, it will inevitably be follow­ecj by Federal Control of Education, the drive for it continues with un­abated force. The National Education Associ­ation which is honeycombed with Reds and which s p o n s o r s UNESCO's subversive program, has sent a booklet to its 700,000 mem­bers instructing them to lobby with their senators and congressmen for the Murray-Metcalf bill which would "provide" $1,000,000,000.00 per year for four years to be used in building class rooms and raising teachers' salaries. By "provide" they mean, of course, that this money would be taken away from the taxpayers in the various States, sent to Wash­ington, divided among Federal loot­ers and then what was left would be sent back to the States who gave the money in the first place, to be used for building class rooms and paying teachers' salaries. No such vicious legislation could be dream­ed up except by depraved politici­ans in Washington whose respect for Constitutional procedure has long since gone by the board. The Department of Health, Edu­cation and Welfare, an agency which was set up to provide jobs for the President's friends, is also getting into the act. Director Flem· ing of that outfit who has aban­doned his cranberry jag recently came out for Federal Aid to Educa~ tion in order that American stu­dents might be given courses in every language on earth from Af­ghanistan to Swahili. What Fleming apparently does not realize is that, thanks to Prq: gressive Education foisted on this nation by dim-witted educationists like him, most American students can't speak correct English yet and it will be years before the damage done to education in this country by pro-Communist educational leaders in the nation's colleges and universities can be overcome and deficient teaching methods adjust-ed to the point where students' _ _, minds are capable of assimilating foreign languages. What this country so tragically needs is a thorough clean-up in the national organizations whose lead· ers set themselves up as authori­ties on the nation's educational pol· icies. They are rotten to the core. Our Thanks For Good Wishes Domestic Arts Have Honored On lOth Aniversary Edition Place In Scheme Of Things As usual, we spent Christmas week with our family in Houston where we had the privilege of doing something we like best to do next to writing and that is cooking. The kitchen was turned over to us and we were informed that it was all ours. Our frie~ds frequently express amazement that we not only know how to cook but love it. They think because we are a writer that this sort of excludes us from the domes­tic field. In our humble opinion, every wo­man should know how to cook, sew and keep house even though she may not have to do it or, as in our case, lives in a hotel and can't do it. Household arts are not to be looked down on and any woman who likes to boast that because she is a career woman she can't boil water, is all wet and has a perverted idea of woman's place in the scheme of things. We are excessively proud of the fact that we are a good cook and we don't mean by that we depend on "mixes'' or that we can take a "television dinner" out of the ice box, heat it up and call it a meal. We can take a turkey or chicken while stil1 in the barnyard and per­form all the neccesary functions from that time until it appears on the table ready to eat. We have done it many times. When we were still a teenager we could wring a chicken's neck with one twist of the wrist and we never missed and we could do it again if we had to. Young people of today probably consider that only a 11Square" would make such an admission and maybe they are right but if we could not We genuinely regret that we do not have space for the hundreds of expressions of good will which came to us on the Tenth Anniver­sary of the Southern Conservativ~ but we appreciated them with all our heart. We are especially grateful to those who expressed their friend­ship and interest in the form of financial assistance to help the pa­per keep going. Our greatest wish is that we may always be worthy of the confidence and respect of our friends through­out the United States, in Canada and in many foreign countries. The Police Department of Wash~ ington, D. C., has requested un. accompanied white women to stay off the streets of that city after dark, claiming that the force is inadequate to protect them.

Mr. Yankus, it will be remem· bered, is the Dowigiac, Michigan, farmer whose treatment by a Fed­eral government agency caused de­cent Americans to hang their heads in shame. Because he planted more wheat than the political plowboys in Washington thought he should, his bank account was seized, along with his farm machinery, and he was practically forced into bank­ruptcy for exercising his God-given right to try to make a living for his family. Mr. Yankus moved to Australia last year in a search for the freedom to work denied him in the United States. The letter is from Grange, South Australia, where the family now lives and is reproduced below just as received: Dear Mrs. Darden: Often on Sunday · afternoons I take my four year old daughter up to the forest reserve in the Lofty Mountains so she can feed bread to the kangaroos and emus. I enjoy listening to the Kookaburra birds. The Kookaburra, nick-named the laughing jackass, is the nation~ al bird of Australia. I have been searching for freedom in this world and T think the Kookaburra is hav~ ing a jolly, good time laughing at me. When I first got fined for raising wheat on my farm in Michigan I really believed that if all the peo­ple in the United States found out what was happening there would be such a hue and cry raised that freedom would prevail again. In­stead of freedom I got my bank ac­count seized. Perhaps the children of the future who will live in the land of the Happy United Nations of Socialism will read about an outlaw named Yankus who believed a man should earn his own living. Recently I appeared on TV in Adelaide on a program called Press Conference. I made the statement that I still believed the Constitu­tion of the United States was the best government ever formed in the history of the world. I will al­ways believe this no matter where I live. I know there are a lot of patrio~ tic Americans who are fighting for freedom with all their might. And I know it's wrong to accept defeat. But my efforts in America were like putting up signs which read, "Do not play with matches" in a burn~ ing forest fire. My two boys just passed their grades in the Austral~ ian schools they attended. On the last day of school, the headmaster was talking about the defeat of the basketball team and he made the remark, "The apples will grow again." I am sure the freedom will grow again but the big question is when? I haven't filled my barrel full of wisdom yet. All of the factories pay their men in cash. A few days ago I walked into the payroll office where I am employed. Nobody was guarding the money with guns. This will tell you a little bit about the moral quality of the Australian people. Another thing I like about Australia is the fact that young boys and girls are employed at an early age. I read a book once which was en­titled, "How To Make Money." There was only one sentence in the book and that said, "Go To Vfork." Russell. my oldest son, brought home a note from his Australian teacher. The teacher said that the homes which had TV were easily determined by the poor work the students Were doing. The Austral~ ian teachers grade the students from 1 to 100 rather than give all "A's" ~s is commonly dOne in American schools of today. Stu­dents have to earn their grades. I knew Australia was not perfect before I came here. Australia has an income tax, old age pensions, and some medical schemes: all of which are socialistic. I have hopes that there may be a counterbalance to this. Australia has a population which is composed of one million immigrants and nine million Aus~ tralians. The immigrants have come from countries which had all kinds of socialism. These immigrants are looking for freedom and as they b~come citizens here, I think they Wlll vote for freedom. Only time will tell if I have guessed right. I moved into my new Australian home on Thanksgiving Day. I thought I would celebrate by buy­ing some coffee because I had been drinking tea since my arrival in Australia. But after further thought I remembered a time when Americans were great tea-drink­ers. They once had a Boston Tea Party. So I celebrated by drinking a toast of tea to my new home. A lot of people have expected me to come to Australia and do some­thing spectacular. I have been busy earning an honest living and estab­lishing- a home. I think it is a life­time job to do a good job of rais­ing mv family. The foundation of a good life cannot be built on the balloons of socialism. One of my boys and some of his friends went up to Brownhill Creek in the Ade­l~ ide Hills to try their luck in pan­mng for gold. I am going to keep right on looking for freedom. In the June issue of the Southern Conservative I read that you want· ed to get paid for unot raising rice." I am sending you five dol· lar for not raising rice. But from the seeds that you are planting freedom will grow again. A Yank named Yankus, Stanley Yankus The United Society of Methodist Laymen, Inc., resumed their radio program and broadcast over a State network from Austin, Texas, January 11, 12 and 13. This group seeks to offset the subversive forces in regular Methodist organ~ izations which promote the Marx~ ist Social Gospel. THE PRESIDENT'S BRAVE PROMISES ARE CANCELLED OUT BY HIS PERFORMANCES One of our Dallas subscribers with a keen insight into political affairs believes that it takes a lot of doing for the American people to understand the contradictory and conflicting statements of the President. . She is Elizabeth Staples and while she concedes that compari~ sons are odious, she makes a few between the President's promises and his performances which make it extremely difficult for even his admirers to ascribe to him the virtue of consistency. In discussing the subject, Mrs. Staples writes in part: One who examines the trail which the President has left be~ hind him since the 1940's cannot fail to notice that his words and promises are brave and conserva­tive and sound fine in the press or over television but, somehow, his high-sounding plans seldom, if ever, get off the ground. Something mires them down prior to fulfillment. One of two things invariably hap~ pens - either his pro-American program runs into insuperable dif­ficul ties or after the rosy glow of publicity has faded, his wonderful plan gets lost in the shuffle. Mean~ time, thE" exact opposite will have happened. Consider his 1948 testimony be~ fore the Armed Services Commit­tee when he said: "There is race prejudice in this country and when you put in the same organization and make live together under the most intimate circumstances men of different races, we sometimes have trouble . . . If we attempt merelY by passing· a lot of laws to force some one to like some one else, we are just going to get into trouble." This was Ike's oitch four years before election which was cancel­led out soon after he assumed of­fice by his apnointment of Earl Warren as Chief Justice of the Su­preme Court, by his approval of the un-constitutional "law of the land" perpetrated nn the American people on May 17, 1954, by the ramming of a dastardly Civil Rights bill through the Congress and by the sendin~ of storm troopers to Little Rock. In 1949 from the eminent office of the President of Columbia Uni~ From an irate subscribe; in St. Louis.· "Your editorial about Tru~ man's sermon in a Dallas church which appeared in your anniver­sary edition was a masterpiece b11t I notice you linked him to St. Louis. Why did you do this to us?'' Answer: We just plain goofed. We knew of course that it was Kansas City but for some unaccountable reason we wrote St. Louis. We hereby apologize not only to the St. Louis subscriber but to the city of St. Louis for this indignity, God speed the day when it be­comes fashionable once again to be an American and proud of it; to be loyal to the American Flag and to defend the American form of government and American in­stitutions, customs and traditions against all comers. versity, Ike declared: "I firmly be­lieve that the army of persons who urge greater and greater depend~ ence upon the Federal treasury are really more dangerous to our form of government than any external threat that can possibly be arrayed against us." These were brave and noble words indeed but, nevertheless, be~ ginning with the 1955 White House Conference on Education he has vigorously sponsored Federal Aid to education, with inevitable Fed­eral control. And although advocat~ ing Federal economy in season and out, he has constantly plumped for excessive foreign aid bills and de­manded that giving away of tax~ payers' money to alien countries become a permanent policy of gov~ ernment. Consider also how he has consis· tently sabotaged States Rights while yet echoing in bewildered citizens' ears was his campaign or­atory of 1952: "Freedom's greatest threat today is too much govern­ment too far away from the peo~ ple." One might almost say that his utterances emanate from Dr. Jekyll while his consummated deeds are reminiscent of Mr. Hyde. Is it possible that our Chief Ex­ecutive is such a vacillating char .. acter that he is tossed in all direc­tions by every wind of chance and actually not reSponsible today for what he mav do tomorrow? How can he oossiblv reconcile his oath to uphold the Constitution with his hearty endorsement of Earl War~ ren's shameful attempts to shat­ter the safeguards in that document against the encroachment of World Communism? How can the Pre<>ident salute the Flag of the United States and ac­cept its protection as he travels throughout the world while giving orior allet!iance to the flag of the United Nations. an organization cleverly designed for reoladn~ the Constitution of the United States with a One-World Charter? Hadn't we, as freedom-loving Americans better do our dead.Jevel best to find out whether it is the President's words or his deeds on which we can depend? Most newspapers gave little space to the brawl at the Dallas Cotton Bowl football game be­tween University of Texas and Syracuse players on New Year's day. The trouble was occasioned by the fact that Syracuse had three Negroes on its team. Blame for the trouble rests with the Uni .. versity of Te:t·as whose officials knew in advance that the Syra~ cuse team included Negroes and they should have refused to let Texas play in an inter-racial game. No decent white man wants color~ ed men piled up on top of him In the intimacy of a football ga"e and even if there is not open trouble, there is natural human resentment. There is nothing nor .. mal about such an arrangement. January, 1960 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 7 What Every Citizen Can Do LET'S SHOOT EXPERTS INTO THE AIR To Help Save The Republic AND KEEP MONKEYS ON THE GROUND If we had ever sat down and There is no greater lay authority on the proper functions of the American governing system in the United States than the Honorable Tom Anderson, editor of Farm and Ranch at Nashville. His brilliant writings are more and more prov­ing instrumental in awakening his readers to the urgent need for in­telligent and responsible political action on their part if the Republic is to be rescued from the folly of inept, if not traitorous, leadership in Washington. The following edi­torial by Mr. Anderson appearing recently in the Arkansas Farmer provides a sort of blueprint or guid­ance sheet for those Americans seriously desiring to render service to their country in its greatest hour of peril-Editor. "What can I do?" That's the question more and more patriotic Americans are asking. "What can I do to save my country from bank­ruptcy, defeat, and slavery?" You can do plenty. 1f America can be saved from becoming a so­cialist- labor·welfare dictatorship it can only be saved by a revolution at the grassroots. Our nation can be saved the same way it was founded, by rebellious patriots de­manding a return to home rule. We must return to the Constitution, to states rights, and to states respon­sibilities. The greatest enemy of man is, was and always has been govern­ment. And the bigger the govern· ment the bigger the enemy. What can little you do to cut the fed eral monster down to size? First, we must know what we're for; and then work for it. Specific­ally, here are some things we need to do to save America: Fjrst, kill the federal personal income tax. This is the one most vital thing we can do. It would automatically solve many of our problems. The federal income tax law (16th Amendment,) threatens to lead us to complete federal dictatorship and Socialism because it enables the federal government to engage in 19,000 businesses it has no busi­ness in; and to usurp powers and responsibilities which, under the Constitution, belong to the states. Urge your state legislator to in· traduce a resolution to require Con­gress to submit a proposed 23rd Amendment to the American peo· pie for ratification, or call a Consti· tutional Amendment for that pur· pose. Texas and Wyoming have already voted the proposed Amend­ment. The federal government can get along on the income tax it col­lects from corporations, and from other tax sources. You would thus end the Federal Aid grab whereby thousands of state and local politicians fight for position at the Washington trough for every "free" handout on the excuse Hif we don't get it, somebody else will" You'd resur­rect states rights. Some other things that we can do are: Demand that your congress· men vote to limit the peacetime debt, now. If they can't tax it or borrow it, they can't spend it. Com-pel an annual balanced. budget and retire the national debt. Curb the Supreme Court. Drastically reduce U. S. aid to friendly foreign coun­tries. Eliminate it to enemies like Tito, Russia's Trojan Horse. Cuba Taken Over Without f~~~~~;~ose;~~u~u~J~c~~~:n~~~1~ The Firing Of A Shot ~~;esp~~~r~; fl~~~t ht:% a1~~:;~s e~~ If we are going to save the na­tion, we must save it on a Tuesday -voting day. But politics is an all­year job. We can't save the nation on any Tuesday unless we work the year around. Never again vote for the lesser of two evils. Vote for somebody you want even if you have to write in a name. Vote for principles, not personalities. Vote for integrity, not sex-appeal. Vote for what's in the candidate's record, not what's in his ghost-written speeches; for what he does, not what he says. Vote against every congressman the Socialistic ADA (Americans for Democratic Action) is for. Demand a return to the gold standard and a stable dollar. There must be a shift of the economic power back from Wash­ington to the grassroots, where the people can understand it, feel it, control it. Remember that a government big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take all you've got. Why not send all officeholders for whom you have a right to vote, a list of things you're for? Tell them you'll be watching their votes carefull y. Demand that they state clearly how they stand on each is­sue listed. Demand that your congressmen support Senator Talmadge's pro­posed constitutional amendment vesting exclusive control of the public..,schools in the states and lo­cal governments. Kill the present Social Security System and install in its place a pay-as·we-go Social Security System. Set up a single, civilian-manned commission to buy all non·combat materials for all three branches of the armed serv­ices. Centralize control over dis~ posal of government surplus. What can you do? Ask yourself and others this question: What is the government doing for me now that's worth 1300% more than what the government did for me in 1940? How much more good can I af­ford to have done for me at this rate? Demand that your congressmen protect us from treaties, executive agreements, and secret diplomacy by passing the original Bricker Amendment. Get the federal gov­ernment out and set the farmer free. Give Red China a seat in the United Nations-our seat. Outlaw the Communist Party. Communism is a godless religion, a conspiracy (dedicated to our destruction) which masquerades as a political party. Insist that we cut off trade and relations with Communist na­tions and their satellites. Kill Civil It must seem strange to anxious Americans how silent would·be candidates for President on both the Democratic and Republicai\ fac­tions of the Socialist Party are on the horrible situation in Cuba, right at our very door. As many of us predicted the suc­cessful Cast ro revolution merely meant that Communists were tak­ing over this Caribbean isle and this has now been confirmed. And while the American President was on an eleven-country trip to far­off places "combatting" Commun­ism. the Soviets were perfecting the1r control over the puppet Cas­tro right under the very nose of our State Department which never chirped in protest. Cuba is now the beachhead from which World Communism is launching its ideological invasion of all Latin American countries ac­cording to admissions by Commu­nist sources who concede that Cuba was taken over without the firing of a shot or of any appreciable pro­test from Washington politicians who regard themselves as world leaders. Castro is taking the China line that he is an "agrarian reformer" but the fact is that he is a stooge of Moscow and that the Uni ted States which likes to meddle in other nations' business, is doing nothing about it. Lyndon B. Johnson is certainly pursuing his campaign for re-elec­tion as United States Senator from Texas with great vigor. Recently he made speeches in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa, which sets some kind of a record in the territory covered by a candidate for a State office. racketeering, taxpaying laws as are businesses. Remember it is not what the politician says, but what he does that counts. And the same goes for all of us. We say we love freedom. What are we doing about it? The voice of the people, if it is loud enough, can prevail over the selfish minority groups. Insist that your government stop its piecemeal surrender of the world. Remember that the only way to end the cold war is to win it; that the Communist definition of peace is surrender. Remember that war is horriblt but slavery is worse. It's better to die on our feet than to live on our knees. The only way to peace and free­dom is for Freedom Fighters across the world to rise up together.

Humphrey of Minne­sota, one of the longest-winded members of the Senate, has been running for President of the United States practically since the first day he entered public office. Recently he made it legal by announcing his intention of going after the nomi­nation on the Fair Deal Democratic ticket. Humphrey is different from the other half dozen or so candidates in both parties who are contestants for the nation's chief executive job. All of them are Socialists, of course, but with most of them it is only skin deep as they know better. Way down deep in their hearts, they are bound to be asham­ed of their Marxist alliance and would probably be recognized as good, sound Conservatives if they did not mistakenly believe that they must be "liberals" in order to hold office. In their quiet moments of reflection, their conscience un­doubtedly hurts them because as public servants they have perform­ed like little yellow dogs with their tails tucked between their legs as they meekly followed Socialist lead­ership to the almost complete de­struction of Constitutional Govern­ment. But not Humphrey. He's a born Socialist and proud of it. He ac­tually believes the tripe he spouts forth in the Senate and in the pub­lic forum and the fundamental prin­ciples on which the American gov­erning system is based are as alien to him and as far beyond his under­standing as is the tribal language of the Bushmen of South Africa. In a way, he might be described as the most sincere candidate in the whole caboodle for while the others are Socialist converts for expediency, he is a born believer in the theories of Karl Marx as a matter of principle. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE THE SPECTER Of OLD WORLD INTRIGUE REARS UGLY HEAD IN UNITED NATIONS Haunting visions of intrigue, secret police and a frightening tap on the door at midnight which many feel is the future fate of humanity were brought to the forefront by the "suicide'' of Povl Bang-Jensen, Danish diplomat attached to the United Nations whose strange death placed an obligation on representatives of decent nations which has not been discharged. From confidential sources in Washington we learn that authorities there are convinced that Bang-Jensen was murdered but since this country is a member of the diabolic conspiracy and nest of international spies known as the United Nations, no action has been or likely will be taken in the matter of investigating this mysterious death which occurred on American soil. New York police officials hastily pronounced the death a suicide and closed the case. The rumors which have attended the tragic incident are not pretty and the United Nations will be more suspect in the minds of patriotic Americans than ever. The affair has emphasized the fact that the U.N. is dominated by Communists and since no one in his right mind has any doubt as to what the Soviets will do cto achieve their aims, it will be a long time before the conviction is erased from many minds that Bang~ Jensen met his fate at the hands of the Soviet Secret Police. For those who have not kept up with the case, the facts are these: Bang-Jensen was one of a team of investigators who interviewed Hungarian refugees in Vienna. The Danish diplomat was able to collect much valuable information from these refugees on his promise that he would not reveal the names of his informers. This was to protect them and their relatives still in Hungary from reprisal by the Communists. However, a few months later Secretary General Dag Hammars­kjold's assistant demanded that Bang~Jensen give the names of his informant~ to be placed in the fil~s of the United Nations. Bang-Jensen was promised that these names would be safe in U.N. files, but since the Dane was not stupid, and knew that a Soviet promise meant less t~an nothing, he refused to comply. He was promptly fired by Hammars­kjold and two armed guards were assigned to escort him to the front gate of the United Nations building. This was followed by a typical Communist smear of the ousted diplomat to the effect that he was "mentally unstable'' because he would not betray those who told of Communist brutality in connection with the Hungarian uprising. Later Bang-Je~sen wa~ ~ound ~hot to death with a note indicating that he had committed suicide. Th1s was taken as evidence by those who apparently had never heard of secret police torture methods and the whole thing was apparently brushed under the rug. Perhaps this may yet be the cause of a full scale exposure of the United Nations for what it is and, if so, Bang-Jensen will not have died in vain. ROCKEFELLER'S WITHDRAWAL MEANS GOOD RIDDANCE OF BAD RUBBISH Any One Refusing To Affirm Loyalty Is Simply Not Loyal The rapid advance of Commu­nism in the United States is of course, evident on all sides bui. its spread in educational circles is es~ pecially pronounced. Nelson A. Rockefeller, Governor of New York, and International So­cialist of the first order announced late in December that he would not try for the nomination for Presi­dent of the United States on the Republican ticket. He was convinced, he said, after a trip throughout the country that while people liked him, they pre­ferred Richard M. Nixon as their standard bearer in the next elec­tion. We congratulale the people of the United States on Mr. Rockefel­ler's withdrawal from the contest. As we have said before, while Mr. Rockefeller may be a genial gen­tleman in private life, as President of the United States he would be more dangerous to the best inter­ests of the country than any man who has held that office hereto­fore and that is· saying a lot. As a matter of fact, there should be a law to prevent any governor of New York from ever becoming President. While New York is phys­ically a part of the United States, actually, with its· heavy foreign­born population, it is largely an alien section of the country com­pletely out of sympathy with the rest of the nation. Most of our major troubles started with the election of a New York governor in 1932 and to be forced to suffer another one would be placing the American people in double jeopardy. It was a narrow escape for if Rockefeller with all his billions had gone after the job hammer and tongs he might have secured the nomination. And if he had been nominated, there was the horrible prospect that he might have been elected for the American people have proved to our sorrow that they will elect almost anybody to that exalted job when the proper amount of propaganda is launched in his behalf. Now if Mr. Nixon would just make it unanimous and get out of the race too, there might be a faint hope that leaders of the once great Republican party would come to their senses and select a man with no taint of internationalism in his make-up and who would devote his entire time to repairing the damage to Constitutional Government which his three predecessors have done, in which event the Republic might grope its way back to sanity, reason and common sense. This has been demonstrated many times but never more force­fully than in the refusal of many educatwnal institutions to partici· pate in the student loan program under the national defense educa· tion .act, so long as this legislation provides that those receiving aid must take an oath of loyalty to the United States. Of course the act itself Is Com­munist- inspired for it seeks to give the Federal government control over the educational institutions of the nation by providing them with taxpayers' money, but somehow the loyalty oath provision got slipped mto 1t and the Reds don't like that. They want the Federal government to h~~e control of colleges and uni .. vers1ttes through financial dona .. tlons but they don't propose that those receiving the aid shall be forced to affirm their loyalty to the country providing them with this boon. Six colleges are reported to have declined to participate in the pro· gram because of the loyalty oath requirement; thirteen have with· drawn from the program because of it and between thirty and forty Jariuary, 1960 We Wish We Knew Identity Of An Anonymous Friend Ordinarily when an unsigned comm.unication is received by us it goes mto the wastebasket and no further thought is given to it. However, there is an exception to this rule in anonymous letters received periodically from the same person who writes us two or three times a year. He is obviously a member of the National Press Club in Washington as he always uses the stationery of that organization kept in the mem· bers' writing lounge. His letters are extremely complimentary and oc­casionally he sends money. On occasion we have had letters from other members of the Press Club but they sign their names while this one prefers to remain anonymous. In his latest communication he says: "Some of us here get more incentive to better writing and clearer thinking out of your month­ly newspaper than almost anything that comes to our busy desks. My wife says 4God bless Ida forever and protect our children in D.C.' I wish I might write more fully and sign it." Well, why not sign it? This is not Russia - not yet. And besides, we never take liberties with any· one's name who writes us and are certainly to be trusted in that re­spect. Nothing ever appears in our paper that is not good, sound Amer­icanism and ninety-nine out of a hundred persons who write us afe-­~~~~ s. and unafraid to sign their We value highly the friendship and good will of this unknown journalist but we would be much better pleased if he would only come out from behind his false whiskers and tell us who he is.

If ever the morals clause of the immigration law barring undesir .. ables from this country needed to be involked, it is in the case of the shameless Canadian woman who has brazenly announced that she is coming to this country to marry some Negro entertainer. educational institutions have pro4 tested it. Arthur S. fleming, Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, has recently put in his two cents and expressed his opposition to a decta ... ration of loyalty to the United States on the part of students who participate in the program. Of course every form of excus~ is given by those who are opposed to this oath including the one that it insults the American citizen who Is forced to publicly affirm his loy­alty to his country. But the bald truth is that any individual or group who refuse, or object, to expressing loyalty to the American Republic and its lnstltu· tions, are simply not loyal. It is as simple as that and no amount of fancy phrases employed in explaining their objection will alter this fundamental fact.
