Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 6 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, MAY, 1955 No.! Must We Oppose The American Form In Order To Qualify For Federal Tax of Government Exemption? Internationalists Want Doctors On Their List of Controlled Robots Truer Words Were Never Spoken Through False Teeth In January, 1930, Joseph Stalin made this pertinent observation. "The present development of Bolshevist action in the USA has been prepared at Moscow with the greatest care. The Revolutionary Crisis has not yet arrived in the USA, but there are already num­erous indications which lead us to believe that it is near. The Third International has enabled the Com~ munist Party in America to reach a sLage whe1·e jt can @.etively pre­pare the masses for future revolu~ tion." In spite of this and scores o! other public warnings of Bolshe­vik plans against the USA, Roose­velt recognized Russia four years later and the advancement of the Soviet cause in this country since then is history. "Senator Joseph R. McCarthy, more than any other man of his generation, has opened the pub­lic's eyes to that greatest danger to the nation - the black hand of Communism which is casting its shadow over the world" - Ray H. Jenkins, Kno:rville, Ten­nessee, committee counsel in Army-McCm·thy hearings. We wonder how many intelli­gent Americans think that Wayne Morse could do a tonsillectomy, Sherman Adams remove a gall bladder or Sam Rayburn perform a Caesarean section? This sounds like the ultimate in absurdity and it is but it is no more ridiculous than the belief preval­ent in many circles that we should have Socialized Medicine in this country and that the medical pro­fession should be controlled by Washington politicians. Ever time bureaucrats have ventured into extraneous activi ties having to do with private endeav­or, they have fouled up the works like they did with the railroads in World War I, but they hold stub­bornly to the conviction that they can do a better job of running a business or a profession than those who have spent a lifeLime on the job. The subject of Socialized Medi­cine is being kept alive by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare which is influenced largely by Rockefeller internation~ alists who wouldn't mind adding doctors to the other groups they control. Say What You Please, but Now We've Had It Even the most ardent supporters of the United Nations have 1ong recognized a lack of something in its make-up--some little touch or addition which would advance that great organization to the state of perfection dreamed of by its founders who visioned it as a Temple of Peace in a troubled world inspiring good will among all peoples of the earth. Now the vacuum has been filled, the missing dimension has been supplied and champions of this illustrious World Organi?!ation may go forth in triumph and defy the vulgarians who ever doubted for a minute its capacity to fulfill its lofty mission. They are going to have a United Nations International Orchestra. It is to be composed of one ILO musician from each member na­tion and our own dear Jimmy Patrillo is going to wield the baton as director. Boy, Oh Boy! We can just see the billowing skirts of the ''First Lady of the World, a.s she takes the arm of her dusky partner and gracefully waltzes around the polished floor softly humming the words of the Internationale which will probably be adopted as the orchestra's theme song. Meantime, Jimmy has departed for Geneva on the Queen Elizabeth in a state of luxury befitting a great impresario where he will confer with ILO music makers and probably toss coins to see who gets to toot which horn. Under existing Federal law contributions and donations to organizations engaged in educational, charitable and other non-political activities are tax-exempt. Taking advan­tage of this provision are scores of organizations which are not only political but subversive since their objective is to abolish Constitutional government in this country and set up a National Socialist State. One such group Jtas had twenty­eight officials connected with it who have a combined record of 351 Communist Front affiliations. Was it intended that the tax-exemption privilege should be abused in this manner? No one under the sun knows how many billions of dollars the Treasury Department of the United States is losing by extending tax­exemption privileges to organizations and groups whose fraudulent claims to educat~onal and non-p~litical activity enable them to escape a tax burden which honest Amencans must pay or go to jail. A request by a taxpayer to the Treasury Department for a list of the preferred Americans who enjoy such tax exemption will be answered with ambiguous explanations and double-talk but the tax­payer won't get the requested list. We have the names of 250 such Americans wl1osc organ izations are ta:::-exempt but this does not include the tax-free foundations, co .. oper~t1ves and other ?Toups and publications who are getting a free nde m the matter of mcome taxes in staggering amounts which must be made up through heavy assessments against other Americans who have not been so favored. The list in our possession was taken from a book published by the Foreign Policy Association in 1953 titled "U. S. Citizens in World Af­fairs" and although these 250 organizations to which we refer are al­lowed to hold out the advantage of tax-exemption to their contributors, not one of them is committed, in their published literature. to the preservation of the American Constitution and Bill of Rights or to efforts for perpetuating the American form of government. Below are just a few scattered illustrations of hundreds of organ­izations who have been granted Federal tax status, although those who head such organizations have been officially cited as belonging to Communist fronts. - . "~eague for !ndustrial Democracy", Dr. Harry W. Laidler, exe;::u­tive director. This LID makes no attempt to conceal its subversive activities and openly asserts that it "exchanges information with the Fabian Society of Great Britain". In 1932, the Commissioner of Internal Revenue attempted to get its tax-exemption privileges withdrawn in a lawsuit titled Weyl vs Commissioner, 48 Federal, (2nd) 811, but the League won the case and has continued to operate under tax-exempt status. The Reece Committee of Congress, in its official report ]ast year, recommended that the Bureau of Internal Revenue move again to have the tax-exempt status of LID revoked. The LID was originally the " Inter-collegiate Socialist Society" set up to promote Socialism among college students. After it changed its name to LID, its official publication "Revolt" boldly announced: "The League for Industrial Democracy is a militant educational movement ~hich challenges those who would think and act. Ior a new social order based on production for use and not for profit. This is a revolutionary slogan. It means that members of the LID think and work for the elimi~ nation of capitalism and the substitution for it of a new social order, in whose building the purposeful and passi01'tate thinking of student and worker today will play an important part". Dr. Harry W. Laidler, its director, is shown in oCficial reports of the Un-American Activities Committee of the House of Representatives as having belonged to two Communist fronts, the American Student Union and the Consumers National Federation and as a signer in the Golden Book of American·Soviet Friendship. Laidler is a life-long Socialist and has spent all his adult years in efforts to convert the government of the United States into a National Socialist State. As honest, patriotic Americans rush to meet the April 15th dead­line each year and hand over their tax money to avoid penalties, the (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 ___________.: _TH__::_E _:S__:O_U:_T_H_E_R_N_C_O--:N SE: :-:R--:V::-A-T-:-I-V_E---:-:---=-=---::--;;;-::-;::::-;.=:-:::~M:;:a:-:y,::::l9:::5-::5 Averill Harriman, governor of We learn from a reliable source English Girls Ba.lk At Degrading Practice In American Air Force When the Kremlin's program for of every one hundred airmen at abolishing segregation in the Unit- the dances given at the air force ed States was first introduced base ncar there, thirty of them ~~;~~·eds~~~~l~~er~~=:~~~?~te~f~·~ were Negroes.

Js 1t the mtenhon of the Treasury Department to extend tax-exemption to those who would dismantle the American form of government and replace it with a Socialist system? ''The Fellowship of Reconciliation", A. J. Muste, national secretary. A Report of Hearings of a Special Committee • on~n·American Activi­ties, 75th Congress, page 364 says: "The Fellowship of Reconciliation is the fountain·head of a planned movement in the United States to destroy the patriotism of the American people". It is a branch of the International Fellowship of Reconciliation which requires that its mem­bers must work for the radical reorganization of society and replace the Capitalistic system with collective ownership. A. J. Fuste, its national secretary, is a veteran Communist fronter having been listed as affiliated with such officially cited subversive organizations as the American League Against War and Fascism, Greater New York Emergency Conference on Inalienable Rights, Con~ sumers National Federation and the National Mooney Council of Action. Those who contribute to the Fellowship of Reconciliation may de~ duct such donations for income tax purposes. Does the Treasury Depart­mC'nt fC'C'l that such organizations as this should be granted the tax­exemption pdvileges intended onJy for "educational" and similar movements? 11American Council of Learned Societies", Mortimer Graves, ad­ministrative secretary. Graves was sponsor of a dinner dedicated to Arnerican·Soviet Post War Relations given under the auspices of the American· Russian Institute cited by the attorney general of the United States in 1949 as a Communist front. He was associated with the Na­tional Council of American·Soviet Friendship, Inc. declared by the attorney general in 1944 as subversive. He was chairman of China Aid News. cited as the official organ of the Communist front Committee to aid China. In the Record of the Cox Committee Hearings, page 544, Committee Council Keefe read a further long list of Communist fronts with which Graves was affiliated. Those who contribute to the American Council of Learned Societies are privileged to deduct their donation for income tax purposes. Does the Treasury Department approve its tax·exemption policy being granted to organizations or this type? .. 1'American Friends Service Committee", Henry Cadbury, chairman. Once a respected organization representing the Quakers, this outfit is now a propaganda apparatus which sends Socialists and left·wingers all over the country to address religious and educational groups. Many of these speakers are authors of books and publications openly plugging for the banishment of the free enterprise system and the adoption of collectivism as a national policy. One of the Friends' lecturers, a Negro, was sent to Pasadena, California, to address lhe local branch of the American Association of University Women, After expounding his "social" theories to the AAUW ladies, he was arrested on a morals charge when he was found at three o'clock in the morning in a parked car with two white men. Henry Cadbury, chairman, has been shown as belonging to such officially cited Communist fronts as the American Rescue Ship Mission, and the National Federation for Constitutional Liberties and as being af!iliated with the Conference on Peaceful Alternatives to the Atlantic Pact which, according to the House Un-American Activities Committee, was instituted by Communists. Contributors to the American Friends Service Committee are en~ ti tied to deduct their donations for income tax purposes. Is the Treasury Department in accord with the principles which the Friends use their tax-exemption privilege to promote? "The Phelps·Stokes Fund", Dr. Channing Tobias, director.

Since it can't be argued that How degenerate can we get? intention of the tax-exemption provision to aid such organizations as this? "American Association for the United Nations", Clark Eichelber .. ger, executive director. This particular outfit perhaps leads all others who enjoy Federal tax-exemption in the number of Communist Fronters associated with it. Eichelberger has been affiliated with such officially cited Communist fronts as the American Youth Congress, the Commit .. tee for Peace Through World Cooperation, and is listed in the New York Times of October 10, 1941 as having asked help for the Russians. Also he was a character witness for Alger Hiss and testified that Hiss' reputation for loyalty. integrity and veracity was "excellent" (New York Times, January 17, 1950, page 12) In addition to Eichelberger, twenty-eight persons who have been at one time or another connected with the American Association for the United Nations, either as members of its board or in otherwise promoting its aims, have been named in the March 15, 1955, edition of the American Legion's "Firing Line" as having been affiliated with from three to thirty subversive groups each. ~ Their names, with the number of their Communist affiliations are: Henry A. Atkinson, 7; Roger Baldwin, 18; Bruce Bliven, 18; Henry Sloane Coffin,5; George S. Counts, 13; Bartley C. Crum, 10; Joseph E. Davies, 5; the late John W. Davis, 4; the late Albert Einstein 23: Stephen Duggan, 6; Dorothy Canfield Fisher, 14; Edgar J. Fisher, 6; Margaret Forsyth, 8: Frank P. Graham, 16; Philip C. Jessup, 5; Robert W. Kenney, 30; Dorothy Kenyon. 21; Thomas Mann, 21; . sht , , G. BromJey Oxnam, 14; James G. Patton, 4; Arthur Upham Pope, 18; Richard B. Scandrett, 5; Guy Emery Shipler, 28; James T. Shotwell, 4; Channing Tobias, 20; J. Raymond Walsh, 22. In 1949, Alger Hiss was a member of its Board of Directors but he didn't have any Communist front citations. He was just sent to prison for perjury in connection with stealing government documents and delivering them to a Commu4 nist spy ring. These twenty·eight persons who at some time since its beginning, have been officially connected with the American Associatiort for the United Nations have, between them, a combined total of 351 affiliations with Communist fronts. Still, this AAUN is able to tell those who con­tribute to it that their donation is exempt !rom Federal taxation. Does the Treasury Department know the Communist front record of the personalities who direct the affairs of the American Association for the United Nations, contributions to which are tax·exempt? "The above are only a half dozen out of hundreds of such organ .. izations who are able to operate because of the leniency of the Treasury Department in allowing them to solicit support with a promise that such donations will be tax·exempt. This unhealthy state of affairs poses questions which must some· day be answered and a situation which Congress must correct or else we must~ concede that in order to get exemption from the payment of taxes. a group, organization or publication must practically advocate the overthrow of the American government and its replacement by a collectivist state. Many of the organizations who have been given exemption on the ground they are "non-political" maintain lobbies in Washington and are registered as such and undertake to influence legislation by the Congress of lhe United States. Even the CIO which boasts millions of dollars in its campaign chest has this notation on its listing in the book '1U. S. Citizens in \Vorld Affairs": "D.ues are deductible on income tax returns". By what stretch of human imagination can the CIO be classed as being "educational, charitable or non·political". -...... , Aside_from the fact that the granting of this exemption to organiza· hons makmg fraudulent claims to get it, is a blot against the integrity oC a government agency, it is grossly unfair and discouraging to organi· zations, groups and publications operated by loyal Americans who are denied this privilege. , We, for instance, would like above all things to be regarded by the Treasury Depa.rtment as an American worthy of the privilege which they so readily grant to others who make no pretertse of such loyalty to their own country and its institutions as we profess. It would be wonderful to hold out to possible contributors the same promise of t:.lx·exemption which organizations like those discussed herein are en· titled to offer. But we refuse to become associated with any subversive group in order to become eligible for this favor, if that is what it takes. and there is no power on earth which could induce us to qualify for this privilege by repudiating the form of government of a Republic in which we were so signally honored by being allowed to be born on its sacred soil. E s s fro tha· tra of 1 ties Uni the vis wh d thi to ne tlu go It B jc h May, 1955 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Pagel Executive Has No Constitutional Fair Dealers Claim Plenty of Good Say-So in Legislative Enactments Candidates but Can't Produce One Sometime ago, it was announced from seemingly authoritative sources that the President and the adminis­tration would not oppose the passage of the Bricker amendment, this time. This proposal would prevent trea­ties and executive agreements from over.riding the Constitution of the United States and was defeated by the White House in the previous ses­sion o{ Congress. Those who announced that the President would go along this time had apparently reckoned without presidential advisers who have the last say in such matters although they are not elected by the people, and it turns out, are not even selected by the President. (In the Reece investi­gation of tax-exemot foundations, it was developed that "Economic Ad­visers'' are continuing, regardless of who is president.) Why there should be any concern over whether or not the President or the Secretary of State should approve this measure is, of course, baffling to those who do not understand the new conception of the functions of the three branches o.f the American government. Under the Constitution which sup­posedly still rules, the Congress is en­trusted with legislative acts such as the Bricker amendment and the Ex­ecutive has no authority whatever to interfere. On this basis, proponents of the Bricker amendment should go ahead and pass it. It's not Done With Mirrors But by Lots of Hard Work Sometime ago we received a com­munication from an oUicial of a mi~..­wcslcrn State Ba1· J\::;socia,ion, giving us his reaction to the Southern Con~ servative. "H is hard !or me to de~ribe the appeal your paper has for me and why I look forward so eagerly to it from month to month. My secretary is instructed to bring it to me on ar~ rival and I read it from the first page to the last. I am wondering what school of journalism you attended as I am curious to know which one could teach a person to write as you do." We never attended any school of journalism. That is one handicap we have never had to overcome. We have been so busy throughout the years writing for a living that we never had time to quit and go to school to learn how. This probably accounts for our escape from the unhappy !ate of be~ coming a "liberal'' and proves that poverty is sometimes a blessing in disguise. We write by ear and say what comes naturally and especially when discussing the political confidence men in Washington who are selling the Republic down the river. There is never intended to be any­thing personal in our editorials and our criticism is directed against the official behavior of those who get themselves elected under false pre~ tenses-who make their campaign on a sound platform and then discard it like a dirty shirt as soon as they cinch the job. Thm·man Sensing of the South­ern States Industrial Council of Nashville, Tennessee, has given as clear a definition of "Federal Aid'' as we have ever heard ex­pressed: "It is just as if a doctor said to his patient 'You need a blood transfusion. I am going to take some blood out of your left arm: I am going to put it back in your right arm. l will spill some in the process, but I am going to give you a blood transfusion u:ith yow· otcn blood' '', Time Is Due for A Showdown On Overlapping Authority H the American people had not be~ come hardened to similar perform­ances in recent years, they simply could not believe a story in the press about the refusal of the While House to allow a member of ils staff to han~ or a request that he testify before a Congrc.ssional Committee. A Senate subcommittee investigat~ ing operations for the 1953 rciu~ee relief act let it be known that they would call an assistant to the presi­dent, to appear for questioning in connection with the hiring and firing of the Corsi character by the State Department. The presidential assistant's name is Maxwell Rabb - changed from Rab­inowitz - and as soon as the investi~ gation started, he took off for a vaca­tion in the Virgin Islands. On his return the committee re~ quested him to appear for question~ ing but was informed that the White House felt that Rabb should not tes­tify and that he would not appear. Attempts by the committee chairman to talk to Rabb by telephone failed. The time is long overdue for a showdown on just how far the White House, representing the executive branch of government, can go in thwarting the will of Congress, the legislative branch, duly elected by the people of the United States. Senator Wayne Morse of Ore­gon has let it be known that, al­though he was elected on a Re­publican ticket1 he wiU run next time as a Democrat. What in the Sam Hill difference does it make what he calls himself? lle )s a So­cialist, pure and simple, and so are both of the major parties and he can flop from one to the other without changing his mind on any issue or surrendering any beliefs he may have held. He should quit kidding himself, however, that he is making any change when he switches from one to the other. All he is getting from such rota­tions is a little exercise. The Con(e1·ence of Southern Governors meeting in NashviLle, Tennessee. recently passed resolu­tions w h i c h insisted that crip· pling strikes by l a b o r unions against the telephone company and the L. and N. Railroad be brought to an end. Their sugges­tion for doing this was for both sides to get together and "arbi­t? ·ate." Calvin Coolidge, as gov­ernor of Massachusetts, stopped a strike in Boston in one day and he didn't do it b11 passing resolu­tions. He j u s t let t.he strikers know what would happen if they didn't get back to work and that was that. What on earth has hap­pened to us that no simtlar dis­play of courage and co m m o n sense on the part of high officials is ever witnessed any more? A_ccording to J. Edgar Hoover, durmg 1954 a major crime was comm.itted in the United States every thirteen seconds. His report covered only crimes committed by individuals against umer individ~ uals and there is no record of the crimes committed against the Re­public, the Constitution and the American people by those elected to protect and uphold our insti­tutions and t11e American Way of Life. That record is one that can't be compiled until it is too !ate and t1Jere will be no point in com­piling it theft.. She Should Cio to Paris And Forget to Come Batk Those who don't realize that it is later than we think should con­sider the matter of the ~nation-wide contest which recently c 1 o sed, sponsored by a prominent tele­vision personality. Contestants were to give the name of their preference for Pres· ident and tell why in twenty-five words or less. Winner o( first place was to receive a Cadillac car. the second an all-expense trip to Paris and so on down the line. The winners were announced on a recent Sunday night and some female in Maine, color not stated, received the trip to Paris for sug­gesting that a Negro should be president of the United States and the one she named has been noted for )lis sympathy for Communist movements during his entire adult life. We don't know who the judges were but if allowed three guesses as to their ideological and political leanings, we could give two of them back. Retired Army Official Conduds Poll by Mail . Many high army officers who in­curred the wrath of Washington if they expressed apprehension for the welfare of this country while in the service, have tried to make up for it after retirement. Lieutenant Colonel John L. Hitch­Jngs, retired, of Southport, Florida, is giving his fuJI time to a convention­by- mail campaign in Qrder to give his fellow Americans a chance to express their preference for a candidate tor president next time whom they be­lieve would preserve the sovereignly of the United States and restore Con~ stitutional government in this coun· try. It is his hope that sufficient in­terest can be developed in 'the pres~ idential conventions in 1956 that the no.mination of a leU ~wing, interna­tionalist will be prevented. He has been carrying on his mail campaign for many months and an~ nounces that 62 per cent of those who have voted have favored wn. liam E. Jenner of Indiana. Others selected as being presidential material are Governor J. Bracken Lee, Gen~ eral Douglas MacArthur, Senator Jo~ seph R. McCarthy, Honorable Clar· ence Manion, Senator John W. Brick~ er and others. Some one sent us ~oo;;, without indicating the paper fl'om which it was taken in which a dizzy blonde approacher the man at the Tax Di:t;ision window and says: r:couldn't I just send my tax directly to France and elim­inate the middleman?" Which shows she wasn't so dizzy, aft6T all. Engineers are said to be survey­ing the White House with a view to building another room capable of seating 350 persons. Holy Smokes! Wonder if t1tey are go~ ing to add that many more ad­visers? There is said to be some com~ plaint in Washington because some one moved the pictures of Roosevelt and Truman out of the Foyer of the White House and re~ placed them with the pictures of Washington and Lincoln. Too bad the principles of the former can't be replaced with those of the lat­ter as easily. Prominent New and Fair Dealers arc seriously suggesting that thC'Y may offer Averill Harriman as a can ~ didatc on their ticket (or president in 1946. This would seem to indicate Uwt instead of having a ;<plentiful'' supply of available material as they boast, they are scraping the bottom of the barrel in the search !or a sacrificial goat. Even if New York had a good gov ~ eruor, we would be o{:posed to any person who had ever held that oUice becoming a candidate for pres ~ ident. Holding that office seems to do something to a man and it isn't good. or course our opinion is in the minority as our kind o( Democrat went out with the Charleston but we think that it should be an unwritten law that a governor of New York be barred from nomination on either party ticket. It docs seem a shame that a once great parly has to go down the drain for lack of men of stature to rescue it from the miasmic swamp of Soci-al­ism. Tragically. it is not that there arc not thousands of sound-thinking Dcm~ ocrats around over the country who want the restoration of the two-thirds rule in nominating candidates and who would have it rededicated to States Rights and all the other funda~ mental principles of which Roosevelt strip!*d it, but the machinery is in the hands of political and ideological grasshoppers and gnats and it will take some doing for real Democrats to throw the imposters out, Ameritans for Demouatit Attion Line Up With Reds Americans for Democratic Ac­tion who scream from one side o.f their mouth that they are against Communism and from the other side spout the Communist Party line are at it again. They called upon the President in a letter to "make clear that the United States will not commit its forces to the defense of Matsu and Quemoy." \Vho do they think they are fooling? They have never in the histol'y of that notorious nest of "liberals" known as ADA passed a resolution or signed a petition on any issue that the Kremlin would not endorse one hundred per cent. The signers of the letters were the same bunch of dim witted "lib­erals" who have operated this transmission belt of subversive propaganda since its inception and include~ labor racketeers, pink colummsts, and preachers, such as Elmer Davis, W. P. Kennedy of the Brotherhood of Railroad Train- To~~ ~~y~:!n~~fm~:.ib~~~·ja~~~ ii. ~~~~;;i~;~;,a J~~\'f:~~~a~r~~~~ mas, the only one among them honest enough to come right out and admit he's a Socialist and of course the old battle ax, Eleanor Roosevelt. The State of Utah recently paid off the last $170,000 of its in­debtedness and is no w in the blade for the first time in history according to press reports.

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE For No Reason at All We Publish the Editor's Picture Throughout the years various subscribers have written us express­ing the wish for a picture of the editor of the Southern Conservative but we have aallied along as though-through some miracle-we might become more, instead of less, photogenic with the passing of time. During a recent Easter visit with our family in Houston, our teen­age grandson made a snapshot of us and we decided that a good cheap way to give one to the comparatively few who have requested a picture would be to plunk it down in these pages. or course this is tough on the thousands of readers who didn't ask ior one and who are not even remotely interested in how we look. In fact, those who requested a picture constituted a very small minori~y of our subscribers but, after all, minorities are the ones who are given consideration these days, so here goesl The slightly fatuous expression on our face is probably due to the lively verbal tussle between photographer and model during the ordeal of back· yard posing-complicated by a gang of neighborhood small fry who stood gaping at us from the sidelines as though we were a two­headed calf-and which went somethi.ng like this: Johnnie: (peeking through the camera at us) ~<Grandmother, do you luwe to hold that silly bunch of sweet peas in your hand?

May, 1955 'God Save America From lntellettual Fools' The Georgia State Board of Ed· ucation has earned the. respect of every American worthy of the name for its direct slap at the edu~ cational egg heads who are falling all over each other in their mad scramble to break down racial safeguard~ in the South. The Gco:-gia Bourd recently re· fused point blank to adopt a song book for the public schools of that State because of the deliberate emasculation of some of the oldest and most revered folk songs of this country. For instance, text book editors who have been educated beyond the capacity of their lame brains to absorb it, had taken the Stephen Foster classic "Old Folks at Home" and gone to town on it. Where it says: "Oh, Darkies how my heart grows weary" they came up with this cute little version: "Oh, chil~ dren how my heart grows weary.'' In "My Old Kentucky Home" they performed a similar operation and replaced the line which says: "Tis summer, the Darkies are gav" with this cunning substitute: 01Tis sum~ mer, the children are gay." It is not enough that left~wing educational leaders should distort the facts of American history, im­plant contempt for the American free enterprise system in the plas~ tic minds of American youth and contaminate their morals with lascivious and obscene text books, but these pedantic ghouls must open the grave which closed over an immortal American composer ninety years ago and commit abor­ti!) n on the deathless songs he gave to the South. , rery A"""'"""'· <T!I"..,,I'Il:,on..~, 'l!'a~ there is a spark of decency left, after twenty~ two years .of constant and uninterrupted anti·American propaganda. had better begin now to combat these s l ap~happy cham­pions of racial inter-breeding whether they hold forth in the school-room , the pulpit or the Halls of Congress or else col_lsi~n this country to the fate of the Ro­man Empire when the Ethiopians over-ran the Eternal City.

We hope thot in future they will hold their meeting somewhere near the center of civilization -say Texas, for instance- in order that poor folks like us may have the pleasure of attending.

What statesmanlike behavior, what human understanding and what a spirit of Christian brother­hood!!! He added further that McCarthy had not been purged of contempt of the Senate and indicated by his manner that the Wisconsin law­maker was consigned to the Legion of the Damned because he regard­ed some of his colleagues as a little less than paragons of virtue. (Brother, i[ you want to k n o w something, there are hundreds of thousands of other good Americans who have more "contempt'' for certain members of the Senate than McCarthy could muster up in a couple of lifetimes).

The strike has been in progress for approximately two months and during this period vandalism, vio~ lence and sabotage has run riot with duly elected officials appar­ently helpless to step in and put an end to the criminal acts which. if committed by any group other than a labor union would be dealt with through all the resources of the law. Dynamitings and bridge burn­ings were among the devices em­ployed by the strikers in efforts to enforce their demands and in one case, a four-year-old daughter of a minister in Birmingham was covered wHh debris from her dam­aged home when a bomb was ex­ploded nearby. The blast had been set off to destroy a telephone com­pany building containing expen­~ ive equipment and the fact that it buried a small child beneath plast­er and broken glass was of small concern to those responsible for the atrocity. On the other hand when one of the strikers was accidentally killed during the rioting engendered by the strikers themselves, a great hue and cry went up and the ''liberal" press which had beer: ed­itorially silent on the outrages at­tending the affair up until that time, went all out in headlined mention of the unfortunate death of the striking employe. Service was not only disrupted on the L. and N. Railway but on another railroad in Birmingham, trestles were set afire with gaso­li ne, thousands of telephones in Atlanta, Birmingham and other places were put out of commission through the injury of cables by gunfire. When appealed to for action the governor of Alabama said he plan· ned .to ask the Legislature to "pass a public seizure law." The gover­nor of Tennessee offered large re­wards for "seven insM.nces of prop­erty damage in the telephone strike" but nobody called out the militia or took other proper steps to stop an insurrection against the public peace and safety. J\1eantime, in Washington, Walt­er Reuther said that the worl:cers were merely carrying on a cam­paign to "wil1 a decent contra.ct," with never a word of regret for the loss of life, property damage or sabotaging of the utilities which serve the public and which were threatened and intimidated by or­ganized banditry on the part of a favored class which neither state nor national authorities seem able to control. Maybe We Should Give Benedict Some Sort of Posthumous Medal Another Three-Year Probe Should Now Be Undertaken The Department o£ Internal Reve­nue spent three years and the Lord only knows how much of the tax­payers' money investigating Senator Joseph R. McCarthy to sec il he had cheated the government on his income tax returns. They did this at the de­mand of notorious Communist sym­pathizers both in the Senate and out who will stop at nothing to divert at­tention from the Communist appara­tus in Uiis country and to circumvent its exposure. Because of the Wisconsin senator·s effective fight against Com­munist rats, his enemies worked every possible angle to have him dis­credited and had pinned all their hopes on this final trick of sticking him with income tax evasion. This three-year investigation of Senator McCarthy has been over for some time now and the net result of it was the disclosure that he had not only not evaded the payment of in­come taxes, but that the Treasury De­partment owed him $1.056 instead. Ordinarily this would make a person's detractors feel rather silly but Mc­Carthy's enemies don't blush easily, and have very thick skin. During these three years devoted to an investigation of Communism's bit­terest enemy in this country, no at­tempt whatever has been made by the Treasury Department to investi­gate certain Friends of Communism in the United States. These are scores of tax-exempt groups who hold this privilege on the spurious theory that they are "educational" organizations when. as a matter of fact. they are as guilty of trying to ovt'rthrow the Amedcan govenunent as the om­munists themselves. Tons of litera­ture distributed by them throughout the years will reveal to the Treasury Department that their "educational" activities consist in plugging for the abandonment of Free Enterprise and substituting National Socialism, sur­render of American national saver· eignty tp a one-world government. promotion of the Socialist theory o£ stale control of production and dis­tribution, government ownership of utilities and practica11y every other crackpot' theory which is the very antithesis of Constitutional govern­ment. No grander service could be ren­dered this Republic than for the Treasury Department to start a three· year investigation of those phony "educational" tax-exempt groups who are enemies of the American form of government and whose escape from the tax burden imposed on others, is the last word in discrimination and favoritism to a selected few. Reds in National Education Association Says Ex Chief Benjamin Gitlow, formerly one of the active Communist Party Chici­tains in the United States who later repudiated the party and rendered valuable service to investigating com· mittees in Washington charged that Communists have been very active in the National Education Association. Mr. Gitlow made this statement. in a press interview to a Houston Chron­icle staff member preceding a meet­ing of an Anti-subversive Seminar held in that city by the Americanism Committee of the American Legion rcently, at which l\1!". Gitlow was a speaker. The former Communist said that the Red's interest in the NEA is part of a "conscious program to recruit teachers into the party and then have them usc their positions !or the pur­pose or indoctrinating students." Mr. Gitlow made it clear that the rank and tile of American teachers in the NEA, however, are good loyal Americans and that it is the active minority to which he referred, In the early days of the Republic there was only one person in the United States wh6 was regarded as a traitor to his country and his name was Benedict Arnold. Now we r~ad testimony of a Major General J. F. Carroll be­fore a Congressional investigating committee in Washington who re­vealed that since 1949, the United States Air Force was compelled to drop 241 officers and enlisted men from its personnel because there was a serious doubt of their loyalty to this country. In addition 913 civilian em­ployes were fired by the Ai.r Force for the same reason, dunng the same period of time. This makes a total of J154 of probably disloyal persons in the Air Force alone and that is only one segment of the American Arm­ed Forces. rt\ Also, these figures do not take into consideration the vast and unknown number of Americans in civil life who are working like beavers. against their country and trying to overthrow the American government -by incorporating it into a world state through the medium of the United Nations, or the Atlantic Union. Maybe, after all, we were a wee bit harsh on old Benedict. Perhaps . Wf! should revise history and take his picture down from the Hall of Infamy. After all, he didn't do any­thing much except throw in with England against this country and since this no longer is regarded as a .crime and since the defense of all fOreign countries at the expense of our own is considered sound foreign policy, it seems sort of un fair to keep the old boy's image on the black list. The guy was just born too soon. For putting a foreign country's welfare above that of the United States in 1780, he escaped hanging by taking a powder and skipping the country. heF~~~~jn~r~t~;~~m;eih~~;c~~~a{~ Congress.

Page 6 THE SOUTHERN CON S ERVATIV~ May, 1955 Republicans Will Try to Rescue This Kind of Thinking Should Party From Internationalists Be Done in Halls of Congress A news story came out of Chi­cago sometime ago that makes sense. In Our Book This Is These Are the Ones Who Instruct Nation's Youth Following a meeting of twenty­five hundred real Republicans from thirty-two States, it was an­nounced that similar meetings would be held in forty-seven other States and an all-out effort exert­ed to get the Republican Party back in the hands of Republicans. Praise From Caesar Recently we heard a teacher of Speakers included . S e n a t o r George Malone of Nevada. Sena­tor Joseph R. McCarthy of Wiscon­sin. Governor J. Bracken Lee of Utah, Kit Clardy former Congress­man from ¥ichigan and others. If a similar movement could be generated by real Democrats, there is a possibility that both major parties could be purged of Social­ism and the people once again given an opportunity to vote for Americans concerned in the wel­fare and security of this country instcnd of internationalists whose allcginnce is distributed around over the !our points of the com­pass. The Republican Party, of course, has more men of presictential sta­ture than the Democratic Party. From the day Roosevelt became president, any outstanding Demo­crat who stuck his head up was mowed down because that su­preme egotist wanted no competi­tion. As a result most Democrats performed as robots and all they could say was ''yes" and "me too." McCarren was an exception of course but he is gone. Senator Harry F . Byrd of Virginia is a per­son of !O:Uperior attainments but of course he has a black mark against him for having trotted along and voted for the "censure'' of Mc­Carthy because of his fight on Communists. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina is another big man and. so far, is uncontaminated throu({h association with the So­cialists who now control his party. We treasure naturally any com­plimentary reference to the South­ern Conservative but no greater accolade has been bestowed on it than that received from a Fort Worth Protestant' minister, gradu­ate of Union Theological Semin­ary, and holder of a PHD as well: "Enclosed you will find check for which please send me your excel­lent publication, the Southern Conservative. "All of us who believe in the Christ of the Bible and who de­sire to see our country return to constitutional government are in­debted to you for the unexcelled work you are doin!!." We explained to him later that the paper is sent without cost to ministers but he insisted on paying for his subscription and assured us that he felt it was small com­pensation to us for the service we were rendering through the paper. 'If You Can't Beat 'Em Join 'Em' Is India Policy In Dallas recently there was held an Asia Town Hall Meeting where visitors from the Far and Middle East discussed Communism. One of the speakers, G. Ramachan­dran of India, gave that country's recipe for coping with Communism which so nearly parallels methods of "combntine" Communism employed in this counfry as lo merit attention. M1·. Ramachandran's views so close­ly duplicate those of Eleanor Roose­ve1t that it might have been the old girl herself speaking.

Old. agencies of government never die -they just change their name and keep right on. government in a lOcal institution of learning assert in a public gath­ering that Alger Hiss had nothing to do with setting up the United Nations at San Francisco. The man was perfectly si'ncere, too, and ob­viously believed what he was say­ing. Sometime ago, the Association for the United Nations began issu­ing propaganda along this line in order to make the American peo­ple forget Hiss' part in setting up that monstrosity. Hiss had been put irr the penitentiary for libel in connection with his acts of trea­son against h is country and, under­standably. h is role as arch itect of the U.N. had to be played down. It w~ doing the United Nations no good, fast. So the Association for the Unit­ed Nations put out propaganda sheets to its list of one-worlders around over the country including pink college professors who refuse to clutter up their minds with facts and who save wear and tear on t heir own brain by letting pro­fessionals think fo r them. Th is propaganda was accepted at face value by i ts recipients who have been passing it on to other gullible suck«s. Alger Hiss was the Secretary General of the United Nations at San Francisco, having been agreed upon for this job at Yalta in a sec­ret session o[ Stalin, Hiss and the dying Roosevelt. He was selected to fly the Charter to Washington Where, to their eternal disgrace, t he Senate ratified it. He was the first United States Delegate to the United Nations in January 1946, having been Chosen because of h is ''vah.table" service in setting up the world organization. Later he was a delegate to the London Con­ference of the United Nations. All this is in the official records but a good quick way to look it up is to re[er to "Who's Who" if a copy can be found which was published before Hiss' name was blotted ou t. Our copy is for 1949-1950 and its i nformation on Hiss is furn ished by Hiss himself, as in all caseS of those whose names appear in Who's Who. The poor stupid dears wh~ have been pressured into thinking that Alger Hiss merely went along to San F r ancisco to make reserva­tions and carry the luggage had better look up the officia l facts in t he matter before they advertise themselves any further as com­plete fools and dopes. From an Ex·Gl in Milwaukee: a How is it that you are a thousand miles from Washington and can still give out with more readable news Own the boys who are on the spot?" We don't give out " news" as our paper is all edi­torial and most of the things we write about have hap"pened a long time before and in many cases, never appeared in newspapers. Al­so we are never very far from hundreds of documented reports which good Americans in Congres$ make sure that we get. So it is not so hard as it looks to call the shots when one is on the outside look­ing in. The stability, prestige and security or the American Republic so seriously imperiled by weak leadership for more than twenty years would be largely restored if our elected. gov­eeing officials would adopt the pol­icies set forth in resolutions passed by the Daughters of the .American Revolution at their r e c e n t annual meeting in Washington. Among the recommendations of these great and good women who are forever alert to the safety of the United States are these sound pro­posals · Abandonment of all such plans as the President's atoms·for-peace pro­gram which would be an "invest­ment in immeasurable potentials for our own destruction." Reduction of aU foreign aid as rapidly as possible and the appJica­tion of these billions of American tax dollars to reduction of the national debt.

That American history be taught in all elementary and high schools of the United States and that one such course be required for graduation from all American colleges and uni­versities. That all mayors proclaim Septem­ber 17-23 as Constitution Week and the continuance of Septemebr 17 as Constitution Day instead of changing it to Citizenship Day as advocated by one-worlders. They Dropped His Name but Still Promote His Ideals We have copies of the letterheadg of the American Association for the United Nations, Inc., the group which is composed jointly of soft-headed idealists and plain subversives all working for the objective of bringing about a world government through. the medium of the United Nations. Eleanor Roosevelt is one of the big wheels in it. On these letterheads in 1947 was the name of Alger Hiss, big as li fe, but on the current ones he has been deleted, of course. When he was sent to Lewisburg, Pa., penitentiary for perjury in connection with his acts of treason against his count r y, th~y dropped him like a hot brick. The ones rema ining on the Jist, in many cases, are no better than Hiss, but they haven't been caught. Between the end of World War II and 1947, we gave Russia $426,000,000 of American taxpay­ers' mon ey. No report is available to t hese same taxpayers, so far as we can learn, as to how much, if anyJ of it was ever paid back. Since that same date, we have given more than $52,000,000,000 to all foreign nations. And our own treasury is in the red approx­imately $281,000,000,000. We must have men of extraordinary finan­cial genius handling public money or we couldn't pull bloopers like this and stilt keep the door open. The Rockefeller Empire would topple if it were conducted on such a fantastic principle. May, 1955 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 7,, A Marxian Socialist in Stockholm Dictates Way of Life for Americans . Gunnar Myrdal is a Swedish Socialist who has spent his life trying to advance the social and economic doctrine laid down in the Communist Manifesto. He lives at Nyangsvagen 155, Apple­vikan, Stockholm, Sweden. Americans who never heard of him and who can't even pronounce the names of the street and the suburb in which he lives, may be surprised to know that he is re­sponsible for uprooting century­old traditions in the United States, instituting an entirely new way of life for millions in this country, and that he directly influenced of­ficial action of one branch of the American government. In 1938 the Carnegie Corpora­tion of New York, which pays no taxes into our Federal Treasury because their activities are "edu­cational", commissioned him to make a study of the American N e­gro "problem" and instructed him to make a report of his findings. This he did in the form of a book .called uAn American Dilemma". For this project, the Carnegie Foundation paid $250,000 tax­free American dollars. Up until that time we had no Negro "problem" and our principal "dilemma" lay in how to keep the degenerate ideologies of education­al sewer rats in foreign universi­ties from seeping into American institutions of learning and pollut­ing these fountain-h eads of knowl­edge. In this book-paid for, remem­ber, by an American Foundation enjoying tax-exemption privileges ('xtcnded it by the Federal Trea­bUry- Myrdal made one dastardly The Most Dangerous Facet Of the Communist Conspiracy Those who claim to be violently opposed to Communism and yet fail or refuse to come out against abolish­ment of segregation, are making a fatal mistake. This movement is the most danger­ous facet of the Moscow .Qonspiracy against the United States and one with the most far-reaching potential­ities for destroying the American white race. , Economically, the American gov­ernment has long been following the Communist line and most of our pol­icies and legislative enactments of recent years have been based on the pronouncements originating either in the Kremlin or with Karl Marx. It, by a miracle, we should some­day have all statesmen in Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court, we could remedy all the eco­nomic damage which has been done to this country. But social mLstakes are something else and when. a country is mongrel­ized, it can never be un-mongrelized as other great nations have found when it was too late. We share Fulton Lewis' shocked amazement that the president should ask Congress to give "Neu­tra! Nehru" of India a tittle gtft of $85,000,000. Perhaps it is be­cause of the unbelieveable and fantastic transactions which have taken place in recent years under the guise of "foreign aid" which have caused Americans to become so callous that such a proposal would not inspire them to open 1·evolt. We shudder to think what the amount might have been if Nehnl hadn't insulted us on every possible occasion, stabbed us in the back and spat in our face. If a new capitol building is construc­ted as proposed, they had better anchor it ®wn, and no fooling. attack after another on the Amer­ican form of government, our in­stitutions and way of life. He painted the Constitution as having been Hconceived in con­siderable suspicion and fear" and as being "impractical and ill-suited to modern conditions". He sneered at the cultural traits of Americans and charged them with "a rela­tively low degree of respect for law and order". He referred to the original Constitutional Convention as a "plot against the common people" and predicted that if Americans are "brought to be a law-abiding people" this country may yet become a ''progressive commonWealth". Was this contemptible detractor of this great country and its in­stitutions denounced by leaders of public thought for his vile and slanderous attack against the greatest form of government ever devised? Were his depraved Marx­ian views repudiated as unworthy of consideration by the adminis­trators of a Constitutional Repub­lic? Tragically, the answer is no, in both cases. Instead, as we now learn with horror and amazement, the Su­preme Court used "An American Dilemma" as its source o! informa­tion_ in arriving at its infamous de­cision on segregation. Although Americans may differ on the matter of segregation, no responsible citizen wants a square­headed Swede in Stockholm to initiate policies which affect the morals and social customs of the people in forty-eight American states. We have tried to find out what particula1· thing Fair Dealers hon­ored Sam Rayburn for at the 1·e­cent $100 per plate dinner in Washington, but no one else seems to know, either. Since he has made no fight for State's Rights, no attempt to get the two-thirds rule 1·estored in nominating candi­dates for President, has not oppos~ ed control of his party hy labor union gangsters, big city political machines and Communist sym­pathizers, we decided they we1·e paying him tribute because he had held down the same seat in Con­gress so long. In other words, t hey were rewarding him for perform~ ing like a flag pole sitter w heTe the only thing the con~estant has to do to become famous is just sit and !et time ron by. Over at Madisonville, Texas, there is an institution known as The Sidewalk Cattleman's Associ­ation which puts on a we_ek-long ju~lee every year. One of their quaint customs sounds like a good idea. They have a horse trough full of water and when anyone who does not know what he js talking about starts to make a speech, they pick him 1tp and dunk him head fb·st, in the trough and when he comes up splutter­ing, all desire to o1·ate has de­snted him. This inspires one of our subscribers from that area to suggest that a similar trough be instaUed in a much larger Amer­ican city where a lot of .persons who do not know what they are talking about make a lot oj speeches every day. We Spend More for Defence Since U.N. Set Up Than Ever Before in Peace Time. Why? What We Know About The United Nations We now know that the man who framed the United Nations Charter and convened the conference at San Francisco was Alger Hiss, a financial convert to Communism, and at that time, a member of a Communist Spy Cell in the city of Washington, and an abject tool of the Communist Party. We now know that the ovcr·riding authority in the United Nations, the Security Council, includes a represen­tative of Communism, implacably de­voted to the destruction of our sys­tem of government, with whom our representative on that body is pledged to alliance. We now know that England, a member of the Security Council, has ~~~~~;~ C~~~:;;,~;~~. ::!~ti:'on~up~;~~ ing them wilh war materials, paid for with funds supplied, at least in part, by taxes wrung from our people. We now know that it is the delib­erate intention of the United Nations propagandists to supplant Old Glory, symbol of our national heritage of lib­erty, with servile obeisance to the spider web symbol of international­., ism. Wf! now know that among the em­ployees of the United Nations, our government has supplied unnumbered traitors to our country, who have been exposed by a congressional commit­tee, and we now know that American citizens taking employment with the United' Nations forswear their allegi­ance to the United States. We now know that it is the declared intention of the United Nations to pervert the minds of our school chil­d r en o a one--world ideology. - Lloyd Whitney, Chicago. New Way Is Soughtto Punish American Anti-Communists The bills for "mental health" and "mental hygiene" which are being of­: Cered in many legislatures throughout the nation sound not only harmless but actually appear to be drafted in the best interests of human society. Before they are adopted, however, lawmakers would do well to study them closely for "jokers" and be sure that they are not to be used to punish all objectors to one-worldism and in­ternational Communism. They should also assure themselves concerning the individuals or groups who are sponsoring such proposed legislation for in some of those meas­ures which have been introduced so far, there has been a. veiled attempt to set up machinery tor seizing any pe.,rsons who do not conform to "liberal" ideologies and haul such persons off to mental institutions without the benefit of law or legal procedure thereby denying due pro­cess as guaranteed by the Constitu­tion. There is, as every informed person knows, a constant attempt made by subversives to s me a r those whose loyalty is all for the United States, who respect the American Constitu­tion and believe in the principles of the Christian religion and there is no means that would not be employed to discredit such patriotic Americans. To give such subversives author­ity to use mental institutions as a weapon of punishment for their vic­tims, we bc1ieve would spell the end of freedom in the United States. It is costing the American tax­payers approximately one million dollars per day just for storage alone on surplus products which, for some 1·eason not clear to the normal mind, were bought up by the government-also with tax­payers' money. The House Appropriations Com­mittee recommended that the al­lotment of taxpayers money for the support of the United Nations technical assistance program be set at $4,000,000 instead of the $8,000,000 requested by the ad­ministration. Their action is commendable as far as it went but if they had discharged their full obligations to American taxpayers they would have lopped off the other $4,000,- 000. The Committee revealed that the United Nations program is costing $1,600,000 per month to operate and that the United States has been paying from 55 to 611 per cent of this cost. This means that between ten and eleven million dollars must be taken away from the people of the United States each year to support this monstrosity if we continue to be a part of the farce., which was going to prevent wars and bring peace. Instead, we are spending far more money for defense and pre­paration for war than we ever spent in peace time before this bogus outfit was set up. And all the while the fat. greasy plotters in this one--world Hog Heaven loll in luxury and lap up liquor largely at the exoense of a country whose money they love but whose way of life they heart­ily despise. NEAOff"ci I Education Group to National Socialism "Laissez-faire" is a French expres­sion which means, as used in this country, freedom of industry from governmental interference in the or­derly conduct of busine::;s. Ip the world of intellectual eglo!­heads, this term is obnoxious as is any other expression of individual in­itiative and independence of action in a country which was conceived in freedom and dedicated to a system ol government based on free enterprise. In this connection, a statement by Willard E. Givens, executive secre­tary of the National Education As­sociation from 1935 to 1052, is in­formative in developing NEA's eco­nomic beliefs. This statement is from "Education for the New America" one of Givens' book,<;: "A dying laissez-faire must be com­pletely destroyed and all of us, in­cluding the 'owners' must be sub­jected to a large degree of social con­t rol. A Jarge section of our discussion group, accepting the conclusions of distinguished students, maintain that in our fragile, interdependent society and credit agencies, the basic indus­tries and utilities cannot be centrally planned and operated under private ownership." After Givens retired as secretary of NEA, he was given its award for his "many contributions to the field of education." tiThe Humanitarian, with his effusions about the common good and the general welfare, may have the best intentions in the world. But if he or his philosophy ever gains complete control of our na­tion, U~e American standard of living will become a rumor whid\ future generatioas will doubt even existed."-Dean Russell in Free­man Magazine. Why Wouldn't We Have Juvenile Delinquency? Those who are amazed and shocked at the criminal record be­ing written by American young­sters should remember that these kids have had all the props knock­ed out from under them in recent years, which has left them con­fused, trustrated and bewildered. The schools and churches once the unfailing source of wisdom, goodness and morality, in a tragic number of cases, have ceased to function in this capacity, prefer­ring to operate as propagandists for a new world order. As a result, hundreds of thous­ands of unfortunate children are the victims of false and evil phil­osonhy advanced by those they had been taught to respect and follow. Through such literature as UN­ESCO, obscene compulsory read­ing material and anti-American ,text books in the- schools and the ,.... new Social Gospel extolling inter­national Commu n ism in the churches. American youth has gained the impression that it is wrong for them to love their own country. respect their parents. be­~:; e~ in God or have pride in their As naturally as night follows day, these young people have re­acted to this immoral instruction by turning criminal and violatin~ the laws of a society for which they have come to have only con­tempt. To undertake to cure juvenile deljnquency without -recognizing and admitting the source of in­feclion is like iryin~ to cure cancer by smearing it with salve. When. and if. the day comes when all instructors in American schools are forced to return to the teaching of Americanism or get out and only ministers who preach the Christian Gospel are allowed in American pulpits, juvenile de­linquency will cease to be the tra­gic problem it is today. President Was the Loser In Turning Down the DAR's The P1·esident was invited to speak a few words to the annual convention of the Daughters of the Amer ican Revolution but sent his regrets instead, even though the meeting was held in Washington not too far f rom the White House and many times before he has travelled to New York to attend minority group meetings. \Ve are sorry that the President couldn't make it to the DAR meet­ing for he would have met and talked to some good, patriotic and sou nd-thinking Americans there which could not be said of some meetings he has gone to great trou­ble and inconvenience to attend. _. In India monkeys are consid-ered sacred and m·e allowed to overrun that country and destroy hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of crops and foo dstuffs each year. So Congress confis~ cates American taxpayers' mon~ ey to send to India to replace the food which the monkeys eat. This proves several things, prin­cipally that the monkeys have more sense than the Indians and that we hare less than either. THE SOU THE RN CON S ER VATIVE Well Blow Me Down and Fan Me With A Cocoanut Palm We are inured to the spectacle of American taxpayers' dollars being loosely flung around over the earth by irresponsible politicians in Washington who know only one way to raise money and that is to take it away from those who earn it. We have stood helplessly by as Averill Harriman, Paul Hoffman and Harold Stassen have h igh-tailed it to remote sections of the world seek ing subjects for our generosity, preferably those who would later laugh at our stup idi ty and line up with our enemy at the drop of a hat. We have seen the recipients of this money put it to practically every c;onceivable use under the sun from building atomic weapons which may somedav be turned against us to setting up tap-dancing classes for retired Himalayan camel drivers. but we believe the South Vietnam government converted a share of its "Iore i.e:n aid" into a channel which even the weasel-brained reformers and do-gooders who initiated the program had not anticipated. We learn from the New York Times thlt authorities of Vietnam's government may have utilized part of its " foreign aid" money and the prefabricated houses we sent them to re-organize. rehabilitate and modernize their local prostitution industry and put it on an up-to-date and paying basis. "The rumor persists that part of Saigon's massive bordello was constructed with American aid dollars and prefabricated Mousing" writes C. L. Sulzberger in the Times. We bow gracefully to the superior wisdom of those whr.., shape our foreign policy and whose irrevocable decisions commit us to the re­sponsibility of advancing the economic, social and cultural progress of under-privileged countries at the four corners of the earth, and all points in between, bu t we timidly r ise from the rear and respectfully protest that the appropriation of American tax money to subsidize a South Pacific assignation house is hardly a proper method of achieving this worthy end. If the sponsors of the Foreign Aid program will have their research department give close study to the subject, we believe they will decide that this particular grant was unnecessary since the industry they may be propping up in Vietnam is an especially hardy perennial among human enterprises and one which will unquestionably survive without government support. We are also convinced that they will find that th is was a flourishing and thrivi ng business in the island long before the Marshall plan was put into effect and befqre prefab ricated houses were invented and when those engaged in it had to car ry on their transactions in tumble-down shacks and delapidated bamboo huts and, in a pinch, under the protect­ing branches of a spreading b anyan t ree. If They Don't Sweat and They Don't Pant What Do They Do? All over the country there has been widespread and increasing criticism of UNESCO, one of the numerous offshoots of the United Nations, coupled with charges that millions of dollars are being frittered away by that agency on silly research on inane subjects, which might well be put to better purposes. Now, however , it looks like UNESCO, through its Arid Zone Re­search C01nmittee, has made such a remarkable discovery and rendered such an ou ts tanding service to the world that its critics will all be silenced. The Committee, after a year of intensive study, has found out why a camel can go seven days withou t a drink. The world scientis ts who spent their valuable t ime and und isclosed amounts o{ money in cracking this heretofore challenging secret of nature say that the answer is, after all, very simple. Camels don't sweat and Gamels don't pant. This, declare the experts, enables them to retain moisture instead of dissipating it through the exercise of these two functions and pro~ vides the answer as to why the dromedary, unlike his human contemp­orary, can take a long snifter at a roadside inn and then go for a week without tanking up again. In the light of this invaluable information , it is hard to realize how the world has struggled along this far without knowing the answer to one of our most baffling international. problems. Meantime, the scientists have our brow all furrowed. Ever since we read the Associated Press article about this scientific discovery, we have been wondering about it a lot. While all the other animals in the desert are sweating and panting, just what do the camels do to pass the time away? Chew bubble gum, maybe? "Any person, whether he or she be p1·eacher, teacher, writer or just plain citizen who advocates anything but our United States way of living is not worthy of the protection this country affords. And, if they are too irritated by our system of freedom, the boat leaves tomorrow - Angus H. Mc­Gregor. Supreme Court Justice Douglas' tendency to journey to far places of the earth to find association with odd specimens of humanity must be catching. The last heard from A d 1 a i Stevenson, he was down in Nairobi1 Kenya, in the Union of South Africa running around with the 1\.fau Mau's. M.y. 1955 The Public Is Fed Up to Here With the Corsi Case The Corsi case, like others of a similar nature, has claimed far more attention than the import­ance of the affair jus tifies. It was another case where a man was fired from a government job and the wolf pack of " liberals'' were soon in full cry demanding an investigation. For those who are not up-to-date on the gentle art o[ hiring and fir~ ing, it is now practically impos­sible for a government worker. a labor union member or a public school principal to be fi red , no matter how incompetent or unde­sirable such person may be, with­out pandemonium breaking loose all over the place. This Corsi person was hired by the State Department allegedly to hasten the operation of bringing in more foreigners to this country. As a matter of fact , h is job was to assist in breaking down the Mc­Carren- Walter immigration law by bringing in 214.000 refugees as re .. quested by the president . He should never have been hired in the first place; in fact , the execu­t ive department h ad no moral or Constitutional right to tamper with duly elected laws of the Con­gress. but this practice has been accepted as good government pro­cedure so Corsi was hired to hasten the process. Ordinarily it takes a bureaucrat some li Ule 'time to develop a case of swelled head but Corsi seems to ha-ve been well advanced toward this condition on his arrival at the State Departme.nt. He immediately out~rew his job, demanded that hE!b!!allo ~ed""to-carry-onit tttres­withou t r eporting to the regular department head in char ge of such matters. So Dulles bounced him out but, according to Corsi, made the usual gesture extended in practically aU such cases and offered him another job which Corsi refused. Since then Corsi has been pop­ping off in the press and publicly airing his grievances through other communication mediums although no one seems particularly interest­ed except the active cell of Pinkos who go into action every time one of their proteges is choked off from the public teat. Corsi says that, as a result of his firing. the program to admit 214,- 000 aliens in to this cou ntry in v io­lation of our immigration laws, has been "wrecked." We sincerely hope he's right and we hope it stays wrecked. Wayne Morse-says that it would be much better if all members of Congress voted according to their conscience, rather than party con­siderations. That's all right except that so many of them don't have any. A gossip magazine sa y s that since the president's tuife refused to invite Mrs. Joseph R. McCarthy to the '\Vhite House 1·eception for wives of senators, Washington asociety'' is afraid to include the Wisconsin senator's wife on their guest lists. Jeanne McCarthy is a born aristocrat and a lady in aU that term. implies, and we imagine she is not too concerned over any slight by the female toadies1 so­cial climbers and name-droppers who engage in the rat race loose­ly k no ton as l-Vashington uso ~ ciety."
