Transcript THE SOUTHERN U. S. Posta<Jo I PAID CONSERVATIVE - To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 12 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, SEPTEMBER, 1961 No. 9 ARE OUR NATIONAL LEADERS OPPOSING OR AIDING THE SPREAD OF COMMUNISM? At Long Last The American People Are Waking Up In A Big Way - It makes the heart sing to know that every day and every night all over the United States there are being held seminars, work shops, fo rums and other gatherings of awakening AmeriCan ci tizens, young and old, to probe into the conspiracy against the United States and to find out how much this conspiracy is being aided and abetted by the very men elected to defend our national security and way of life. And the heartening thing about it is that these gatherings are no ]anger casual and haphazard get-togethers merel y to complain and pro­test. They mean business. Trained leaders are now on hand to inst ruct those in attendance about how to proceed, how to gather in fo rmation and to advise them how to limi t their research only to those sources which a re reliable, authent ic and documented. And above all, these citizens are being advised what to do after they have fortified themselves with incontrovertible evidence that their :Republic is being sold out to International Socialists. Heretofore, there has been much moaning at the bar as groups of citizens have become convinced that there was something horribly wro w· our leadership on all levels, but they ere r id th nothing they could do about it. Now they are being shown that the re is very definitely something they can do about it and told how to do it. Some of these meetings we have had the privilege of attending and others we have been advised of through correspondence and the thing that stands out like a star of hope is that whereas a few years ago such gatherings would be attended by a straggling dozen or so, they now at­tract hundreds and thousands. In one Texas city alone a few months ago a patriotic meeting was admitted by the liberal newspapers of that city to have drawn an attendance of 60,000 persons. • By and large, notices of these patriotic meetings do not appear in the press, however, as publicity is not desired but that this activity is attracting attention in high quarters is proved by the fact that Moscow has recognized the wave of anti-Communist activity in the United States and is taking action to offset it. This was brought out in testimony given behind closed doors before the Senate Internal Security subcommittee on July 11 but only f~~~~~~y~!d~o~~~~~·sc~i~:~a!s h:~;~~~cl;~l~;i~daiH~~;;:re0 ~~~rrtt•·~=:~: fied that the Kremlin has set out to crush what he termed a "grassroots anti-Communist movement" in this country. Orders for this drive against growing anti-Communist movements In the United States, according to Mr. Hunter, went out through a mani­festo issued last Decembe r 5 at a strategy conference of 81 Communist parties of the world held in Moscow. At that conference it was deter­mined to turn loose a new flock of Communist agents to infiltrate the anti-Communist movement here and to offset the nation-wide conserva­tive activity which is developing in all sections of the United States. Hunter said that the primary target of the Moscow drive is the Pentagon and especially "the program to train and alert our troops and our people to Red techniques." He said that the Reds feel that .. unless this program can be destroyed, the anti-Communist movement cannot be liquidated." In this connection, we are reminded of the "Fulbright Memorandum" Which was exposed recently in which the chairman of the powerful Foreign Relations Committee of the U.S. Senate violently objected to American troops being informed of the Communist menace on the ground that it might hurt some of the President's legis lative program. That figures. At any rate, we predict that the seminars, work shops and forums being conducted by patriots all over the land are going to scare the day­lights out of other politicians besides Fulbright and that the day is com­ing when they are going to get the works from the infuriated people whom they have robbed, deceived and betrayed. Since 1946 the people of the United States have been fleeced out of almost a hundred billion dollars to finance various foreign oid programs whose alleged objective is to holt the spread of Communism throughout the world. Also in the pending foreign oid legislation the President demand· ed the biggest lump of loot ever requested for this purpose and indicated his strong desire that this program be mode o permanent policy of government. And yet during the period that this massive give-away conspiracy hos been in effect-and largely because of appeasement policies in the three bronc:hes of government ond in the State Deportment -Communism has mode its greatest strides in its infamous history and has drown 700,000,000 people ond one· quarter of the land surface of the eorth into its evil orbit. This leads to the inevitable question: "Why ore those who govern us in Washington spending billions of dollars to halt Communism ond, at the some time, en· gaging in activities which have exactly the opposite ef· feet?" And os o fair test of our offic:iol a ttitude towa rd the Soviets, o greot Americ:on General was recently relieved of his command for trying to inspire his men with the ideals of Americanism and for instruc tinq them in the ways ·by whic: e might Identify and combat the deadly menace of Communism. There is only one inference to be drown from this incident and that is that if this policy is carried to its logical conclusion, we are foc:ed with the frightening possibility that the day might come when men in the armed forces moy be c:horged with the crime of Joyal· ty to their own country ond court-martialed for the offense. The purpose of this editorial is si!'llply to point out some ot the acts of appeasement of the Soviets by our authorized leaders which give the lie to the claim that by bleeding American taxpayers white to finance foreign aid programs, they are helping to stamp out Commu­nism in this country and throughout the world. Our objective is to show that our contribution of vast sums of money, instead of "containing Communism" has served merely as a device for helping to bankrupt this nation and that those who sponsor and promote the foreign aid program have done as much to help spread Communism to the four corners of the earth as the Soviets have been able to do themselves. No fundamental discussion of the subject is complete without the admission that Communism has not only been aided and abetted by high-level subversion in the United States but that it was partly hatched in this country back in the days when Trotsky left Brooklyn and went to Europe to help plan the 1917 Revolution after receiving assurance that it would be largely financed by international bankers in New York. But the project remained an outlaw venture and the Bolshevik gov .. ernment of Russia was shunned, despised and rejected by all civilized nations of the world until 1933 when Roosevelt clasped Stalin to his bosom and accorded recognition to the thugs, thieves and murderers composing the leadership of the Soviet Union . And to update it from 1933 to 1961, the present "Berlin Crisis" which looms black over the horizon and is causing the world to tremble on the brink of all-out war is also a product of American double-dealing which goes back to 1945 when an American General, on orders from Washington and in defiance of all military tradition and precedent, held back our troops and invited Stalin's villainous ruffians to enter Germany first which they did and raped, looted and murdered thousands of help· less victims in that defeated and conquered country. One of the blackest chapters in American history is interwoven with the "Summit Conferences" at Teheran, Yalta and Potsdam where two Presidents of the United States, serving as putty in Stalin's hands, made concessions of territory and of human freedom to the old monster which (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think it - The Southern Conservative Says It , ••• 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1961 Patriots Are Out Of Luck In Matter Of Tax Exemption A statement was issued by the In ternal Revenue Service on Au­gust 8 which must have been amus­ing to those who are familiar with the facts. In naming organizations which are not tax-exempt they specified the John Birch Society and the Na­tional Association for the Advance­men1 of Colored People. Whether deliberate or uninten­tional, that is misleading for while the NAP CP itself is not tax-exempt, its chief operating arm, the Legal D"fense and Educations Fund, Inc., IS TAX EXEMPT. Naturally those wj..-hin_~ to contribute make their If only just one Washington bu­reaucrat could visit a foreign coun­try without coming back home and making a plea for continued and increased foreign aid for the coun­try visited - that would be the day. donations to the latter organiza­tion thereby securing the benefits of tax exemption. It's that simple in the case of the NAACP but pa­triotic organizations do not have any such loophole. It is to be hoped that the day is not far distant when patriotism and loyalty to the Republic will be regarded by Washington as a pre­cious national asset rather than a major offense. Our National Leaders ICon!. from P•g• I' outraged the free world and made a mockery of the delicate art of honest negotiation between soverei~n nations. As a result of these "S11mmit Conferences" it is estimated that more than 140,000,000 people were sucked into the maw of Communist slave states. And nobody know.c; yet what was said at Camp David and Vienna. All Americans whose memory goes back a couple of decades are familiar with the equally tragic episode in which the American State denartment, ha.~-ridden with traitors, incompetents and homosexuals, had a big hand in putting China with its more than 600,000,000 friendly people on the auction block and selling that great country out to Com­munism while, at the same time, carefully cautioning each other that C.,iFJa must be allowed to fall "without having it appear that she was pushed." Most Americans are familiar too with the role played by the Insti­tute of Pacific Relations, financed by lar~e American tax-exempt Found­ations and operating closely with officials of the State Department - as revealed in hundreds of pages of sworn testimony - not only assisted in China's betrayal but laid the blueorint for policies which only re­cently caused Laos, Viet-Nam and other strategic areas in Indochina to fall ''like a ripe plum" into the lap of the Soviets. The Dies Committee, with Congressman Martin Dies of Texas as its courageous chairman, was the first group set up by Congress to investigate Communism in government. Its disclosures turned up Com­rrounist cells in many agencies in Washington and revealed that young Communists in youth groups had the run of the White House in such overwhelming numbers that they spilled over and out onto the lawns of the Executive Mansion. Roosevelt's reaction to the exposure of these threats to our internal security was not to quickly put in motion the necessary forces to stamp out the Reds in Washington. Instead he put the powerful machinery of the Federal government into operation to dis­credit, Dies and smeared that public servant until he was hounded out of office. The Tydings Committee was set up as a special subcommittee of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to delve into charges of dis­loyalty in the State Department and to investigate reports of wide~ spread subversion in that agency alleged to be threatening the internal security of the United States. Unfortunately, Senator Millard Tydings of Maryland was selected to head the committee. In spite of volu· minous sworn testimony concerning the theft of secret war-time docu­ments from that agency which were delivered to the enemy, the hearings were sabotaged by the committee's own chairman whose one aim was apparently to protect his party colleagues and who brushed the evidence off as "hearsay" and white-washed the whole thing. · The House Un-American Activities Committee, the Senate Sub­committee on Internal Security of the Committee on the Judiciary and other investigating groups probing into subversion throughout the years have turned up spies, saboteurs and enemy agents committed to the overthrow of the American government in such numbers that if all the pamphlets listing their names and their testimony, which practically always included a resort to the fifth amendment, were placed end to end it would probably reach from W(\shington to New York where the great bulk of subversives originated. Yet very few of those exposed have been indicted by the Attorney General's Department and most of those who were have been cleared later by rulings of the Supreme Court whose lenient decisions concern~ ing Communists have become commonplace and routine. Perhaps the most notorious example of official Washington's de4 tense of Communism and the action which inspired more gleeful re­joicing in the Kremlin than any event of this generation was the McCarthy hearing of a few years ago. At that time the Wisconsin senator presented irrefutable evidence of Communist penetration into the State Depart­ment, the Army and other agencies and charged that high-level depart­ments were clogged with Soviet agents, but the cards were stacked aP.ainst him. When he was almost ready to turn over the log and e;{oose the vermin in powerful and strategic places, top-ranking Liberals from those in the White House on down, including those on his own committee, joined together to give him the works and the whole pro­ceedings came to nothing. Later, all those named by McCarthy w:ere proved to be identified with the Communist apparatus but by that time he had mysteriously died and could not say "I told you so." But the Goody! Goody! United Nations Is Reported Facing Bankruptcy We are told that the United Na­tions is facing bankruptcy and that by next year its deficit will have reached $42,000,000 which is all it can borrow. Good. Let us hope that, like a private business industry which fails financially, it will have to ~~~~~ its doors· and go out of busi- But of course that won't be al­lowed to happen. The dear old sucker, Uncle Sam, will probably come to its rescue and bail it out with taxpayers' money and permit As we go to press, the sad news comes of the death of the great writer and thinker, Lynn Landrum of the Dallas Morning News. it to continue to function even though it functions against the in .. terest of those same taxpayers. Russia has flat refused to pay her proportion of the expense of the United Nations even though the Communists continue to con .. trol it, but there is nothing any .. body can do about it until the members of the United States Sen .. ate come to their senses and vote us out of that nest of international spies and saboteurs. chickens have come home to roost and it is recognized by his friends and ene~ies ~like that the grave danger now facing us could have been av01ded 1f the man who tried to warn us in time had not been slapped down in his tracks. When the brave and helpless victims of the Soviet Slave system in Hungary rose up in rebellion against their brutish masters a few years ago and when a little outside help and encouragement would have enable? them to hack their way to freedom, the United States, which proclaims to the world human freedom as its shining shibboleth, not only refused to help the Hungarian freedom fighters but was claimed to have prevented other nations from coming to the rescue. Sworn ~estimo~y in official government documents shows that high .. ly pJaced f1gures m the State Department aided and abetted in the downfall of Batista, an anti-Communist dictator of Cuba and elevated Castro, a tool of the Kremlin, to the job. . For thirty years ~onugal has been the unwavering friend of the Un~ted Stat.es and yet. m the Angola matter, our representatives in the Umted ~allons wer~ mstructed to vote against Portugal and with the Commumst bloc. It IS true that Portugal's Salazar is a dictator but he is anti-Communist and we have shown little antipithy to dictators unless they are anti-Communist. The people of the United States were loud and bitter against Nikita ~hrushche:r being invited y:~ visit the United States on the ground that 1t was an msult to the mtlhons of people held captive behind the Iron Curtain and which would indicate to them that we were friendly to their oppressor. Nevertheless Khrushchev was invited here and was treated like visiting royalty. The Dominican Republic was one of the few, if not the only Latin American country whose friendship for the United States was unques• tioned. But the head of that nation was an anti-Communist dictator so the State Department withdrew recognition of that country on demand of Communist dictator Castro and other Kremlin stooges in Latin America. Gunnar Myrdal is a Communist writer in Stockholm who has bit• terly denounced the United States and its form of government in season and out. And yet the members of the Supreme Court entrustd to him the delicate task of adjudicating a social matter involving the established customs of 180,000,000 American people and allowed him to dictate their ruling on integration of the American schools. The chairman of the powerful Foreign Relations Committee of the United States Senate delivered a secret memorandum, later made public, to the Defense Department in which he castigated a great American General for instructing his men on how to combat Communism, thereby providing the !<remlin with one of the most valuable propaganda weap­ons ever acqUired by the Soviets since Communism was born. . And most incredible of all, millions upon millions of dollars of foreign a1d. money, as well as food and other supplies. have been given by the Umted States .to Communist countries such as Yugoslavia, Poland and other Russ1an satellites where it is naturally used to build up the vast machine by which the Soviets propose to eventually conquer the world. To record all of the official acts of those who represent us In Washington which have helped to smooth the pathway for Communism in its aim of world dominion would require more space than this eight· page paper affords. But these few examples out of hundreds that could be cited, form a pattern of official behavior which proves that there's a wide discrepancy betwen the alleged objectives of the foreign aid program and the actual performances of those who sponsor it. We are only one complaining American out of millions and we possess no special measure of wisdom or knowledge which qualifies us to discern any flaws in this program which are not obvious to all. But we can add two and two and get four and that is all that is nee· essary to realize that something is rotten somewhere when our govern· ment spends $80,000,000,000 to "contain Communism" and those who administer that government take action which causes Communism to flourish. Fortunately there is collective grassroots action now taking place to find out what is wrong with the picture and drastic and vigorous measure may one day be employed to correct it. Otherwise we had as well prepare to face the day when we must surrender freedom, justice and all other other concomitants of a Constitutional Republic to the Soviets who are not bashful about taking what they want or what means they use to get it. Sep!embec, 1961 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page l PROMINENT NEWSPAPERS ENGAGE IN A SHOCKING 'CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE' If the American people often wonder why they have not been informed of events of vital importance to them, and especially with those matters having to do with the encroachment of Communism into our institutions, the inside story of a "conspiracy of silence" on the part of certain newspapers recently may open their eyes. In Dallas on July 26, following a secret plot on the part of certain citizens' groups and owners of 36 Dallas stores, most of whom have a background in common and who are heavy advertisers in local newspapers, it was arranged to allow 159 Negroes to enter the lunch rooms in these stores and be- served. This included the swanky "Zodiac Room" of Nieman-Marcus. According to infuriated responsible Dallas citizens who knew nothing of the incident until it was all over, the store managers secured a pledge of secrecy from Dallas newspapers and nothing appeared in the press there, either before the event or afterwards. Texas people learned of it through publications in Fort Worth and other Texas cities. Dallas newspapers made the explanation that "since there were no incidents there was no news" and, therefore, no occasion for them to mention it. However, the very left-wing New York Times carried a double­column, front page story on the affair the following morning in which the whole conspiracy against reputable Dallas citizens was gleefully reported and highly praised by the New York publication. The boast that there were "no incidents" would not have been possible, of course, if the people generally in Dallas had known of the plot for Dallas has its full complement of decent and respectable citizens and the demonstrations would have made headlines across the country. The Dallas performance also received the unstinted praise of Ralph McGill of the Atlanta Constitution and who is the darling and the idol of racial mongrelizers but whose presence is regarded by most high class citizens of Atlanta as defiling the atmosphere of that historically cultural metropolis because of his anti-Southern and pro-Red racial views. There was nothing subtle and nothing original in handling inte­gration as it was handled in Dallas. This method is "old hat" to experi· enced Communist agents who are always responsible for the overall, behind-the-scene direction of such happenings and Soviet literature teems with suggestions that the proper way to bring about integration of the races is to proceed secretly with plans on the theory that after a thing is done, no matter how evil or corro.pt, the battle is half won and any protest later is anti-climax. It is to be admitted that the Soviets scored a signal victory in the Dallas incident but what is to be said of the action of the press of a great city whose responsibility is to give the news to all the people and not to operate in the sole interest of a group of left·wing advertisers or racial planners in Moscow? In the light of such perverted journalistic deception as this, it is natural that the American people are ill-informed about what is taking place and are constantly shocked to their very marrow by the amazing ildvance of Communism in the United States. Meantime, the term "freedom of the press" will remain a ho11ow mockery in Dallas for a long time to come and the popular legend about who controls that great city will continue to thrive. Irresponsible Squanderers Impose Sales Tax On The People Of Texas Strong evidence that "Corruption at the top sinks down to lower levels has been furnished by the Texas legislature which has imi· tated Washington's cute little cus­tom of taxing anything lying around loose and enacted a sales tax in the Lone Star State. Texans have long been proud of the fact that the State has been free of this form of legalized robbery and the op· position to it is known to be al· most universal. The special session of the legis· lature which passed this iniquitous measure had no sooner ended than the Governor called another one to pass a law increasing salaries of school teachers. Meantime, he had attempted to salve his con· science by announcing that he would not sign the sales tax but would let it become law without his signature. The reason for the proposed ln· crease in the salaries of teachers of course is because this class of citizens is highly organized and constitutes a strong political force and the politicians want their vote. It would never occur to the law­makers in a thousand years to start reducing salaries and making an attempt to keep the State's ex­penditures within its income. That would be opposed to the modern conception of economics. Harry Hopkins' motto of "tax and tax, spend and spend and elect and elect," has as much standing today as it did when that Socialist bum was riding high, wide and hand­some in Washington during the days of the New Deal. It's unfortunate that the whip· ping post for punishing public malefactors was ever abolished. It would be a wholesome medium for chastising lawmakers who consis­tently rob the people and raid the treasury to satisfy their unquench­able thirst for power and lust for spending, Latin Americans Want Our Money But Only On Their Own Terms No greater example of the dwindling respect which has built up throughout the world in regard to the United States could be found than that presented at the recent "Inter-American Economic and Social Conference" held in Uruguay. At this conference representa­tives of Latin American Countries boldly and impudently demanded $20,000,000,000 over the next ten years to carry out President Ken­nedy's "alliance for progress pro­gram," but when it came to lay­ing down terms under which this give-away would be made, the U.S. was allowed to have no part in the discussion. The U.S., however, is expected to put up $1,000,000,000 of the proposed fund. It had been t imidly suggested that this country was to name a Committee of seven men to direct the economic planning under which this $20,000,000,000 would be spent but this the Latin Americans indignantly rejected. Argentine, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru, tak~ ing the lead in the proceedings, made it clear that they intend to plan their own economic programs and want no interference by out­siders. The only thing they want from outsiders is money, it seems, and it looks like they will get it on their own terms, not the terms of those who furnish the cash. Secretary of the Treasury Dillon, instead of being in Washington concerning himself with the stew­ardship of the Treasury was in Uruguay making speeches and promising Latin American coun­tries practically everything in Washington that is not nailed down. The behavior of our neighbors to the South at Uruguay showed plainly that they have no respect for us, consider us suckers and that they are going to bleed us for every dollar they can get, while. at the same time, denying Ameri· can representatives any say-so in the spending of this vast boon .. doggling fund. The United States in giving money like this to foreign coun­tries is in violation of all moral principles and ethics and we, as one humble tax-paying citizen, de­nounce it as a criminal act on the part of those who are sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States and protect the se­curity and welfare of the people of the American Republic only. Southern Conservative Praised In Broadcast Over Eighty Stations We acknowJedge with deep ap­preciation the fo llowing broadcast over 80 radio stations on Thurs­day, July 13, 196!. The program presenting this broadcast is called "Know Your Enemy," originates in Tucson, Arizona and Mr. Hurst Amyx, Tucson newspaper man, is the commentator: There is a small monthly news­paper in Fort Worth, Texas, that is called the Southern Conserva­tive; and it is edited and published by a one-woman dynamo by the name of Mrs. Ida Darden. The name, Southern Conservative, pro~ vides a not-so·subtle hint concern­ing its political viewpoints; it has a strong practical anti-Communist flavor and it overflows with hu­mor and wit that gives the paper a delightful character of its own. Mrs. Darden never loses her sense of humor even though she has tong since lost all confidence and re­spect in the strange shenanigans that eminate from Washington. The sparkling tone of her unique outlook can be seen in the bold headlines of a feature article in the May edition of her paper. It says: "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and his name is Uncle Sam." But in her more serious moods she displays a keen insight on the Washington situation. In the same May issue she writes: "The weak­ness of our position, of course, is the strong Communistic influence From a subscriber in New Or­leans: "Sqmeone has designated you as 'The First Lady of the Con­servative cause in the South.' I say that you are 'The First Lady of the Conservative cause in the United States'." within our own country and the sad fact that the mainstream of our thinking has been poisoned by the Marxist sentiment which has largely dominated in shaping our domestic and foreign policies dur­ing the tenure of three successive Presidents with strong Socialist leanings and a divided allegiance between the American Republic and a One· World Collectivist State and a current Chief Executive who belongs to the same school of thought. "It is an instinctive and natural impulse for the American people to have faith in those who govern them and resent implications that our national leaders are not loyal to this country. In order to keep their sanity in hazardous times such as these, they have got to believe that most of the disastrous blunders in Washington which have served to advance the cause of World Communism, and which have recurred with such frequency as to form a definite and contin~ uing pattern, are the result of er­ror and stupidity rather than intent and design" Unquote. The slogan of the Southern Con· servative is "Millions of Ameri ... cans think it - the Southern Con­servative says it." My hat is off to Ida M. Darden of Fort Worth, Texas, a courageous woman who knows that something is wrong and she is trying to do something about it. A :Young man who is a trainee for Kennedy's Peace Corps went to a Dallas store, according to a local newspaper, and purchased a tuxedo in preparation for his serv­Ice in Tanganyiki.

THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: Smart Negro Man Makes Relief Pay Big Dividends We hear a lot about the unwed mothers who are making a racket out of producing illegitimate chil­dren for profit but we recently heard of an unwed father who is not doing bad. The story was told us by a minor official connected with the wel­fare cleoartment in a large midwest c!ty. This ''unwed" father is a big stral')nin~ Negro man who hasn't worked in years; in fact, he doesn't have to because he has a whole slt•e of colored girl friends who are stu')oortinP him in the manner to which he has become accus­tofl" ed. Some quiet investigation reveal­ed that he was the father in the C<'l'ie of more than twenty women wro were on relief rolls getting ch:ld suoport. In some cases the women had as many as three chil­drf! n and each woman was deliv­eriniY nart of the loot each month to tJ..p "unwed" father. He's a smart Negro all right who ha!' figured all the angles and is mal.r;:ing public welfare pay a one hundred per cent dividend. At the time the affair was re­lated to us, there was talk that something was going to be done about it but those connected with social welfare are notoriously soft­headed and nothing will probably result from this exposure of the wholesale exploitation of a law which is wholly corrupt. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1961 Texas Lawmakers Put Communists Strengthening Their Hold On Africa Tax On Baby Diapers The great tax racket has now come full cycle and tax grabbers hereafter will levy a duty on the first and last garments man wears on his lonely journey from the cradle to the grave. The Federal Inheritance Law reaches down into the coffin and taxes the citizen as he lies wrapped in his shroud. Now the State Comptroller of Texas has ruled that the recent sales tax enacted by the massive brains in the legislature of the Lone Star State, applies to baby diapers on the ground that this article of clothing does not come within the definition of "outer garments" which are exempt up to ten dollars in value. ~ So here we have an example of what statesmen have been diligently searching for throughout the years-total and absolute taxation with full coverage of all and exemption for none. Since the beginning of civilization, the function of baby diapers has been largely that of a safeguard, so to speak, and as a sort of protective device not only for the baby but for those who happen to be dandling a cooing infant on their knee. We believe that this is the first time in recorded history when the aims and purposes of this lowly garment have been given a lofty and exalted status and it has been called on to bolster the failing financial structure of a unit of government, local, state or national. The administration, in Austin, must have indeed come upon poor times when it becomes necessary that even the posterior of a helpless baby must be turned up and carefully examined by beady-eyed tax spies as a potential source of revenue. Under the new ruling, we poor suckers will have the tax collector as our constant companion all the way from the delivery room to the mortuary and as if this were not enough, the Department of Internal Revenue has just announced the addition of several thousand new tax snoopers to its payroll to protect the interests of the custodians of our funds in Washington and to insure that no dirty taxpaying bum sidesteps his solemn obligation to divvy up and help support the deadbeats and chiseling politicians in 91 countries of the world. But this new diaper tax is a big joke on the master minds in Wash­ington because the bright lads in Austin have slipped one over on the old boys in the nation's capital. Even in their wildest scramble for new tax sources, Federal experts in fiscal research never thought to lift up the baby's dress and scrutinize its diaper. They're slipping. Note to Nikita Khrushchev: You say you are going to bury the American people, eh? Well, we have news for you chum. We are already buried and buried deep under a mountain of taxes and debt as are also our children and our children's children, so you can quit bragging. The Soviets are re­sponsible for prodding our leaders into the policies which buried us so it looks like your job is already pretty well done. It has been suggested that when the movement to impeach Earl Warren is completed another be started to have Cyrus H. Eaton tried for treason. We are heartily in favor of both of these proposi­tions but have to sadly admit that Warren and Eaton are but two of the thousands of men in high po­sition who are on the side of the Soviets. Wholesale clean out of the Augean stables must be un­dertaken and accomplished if the nation is to survive. Under the cover of the Berlin crisis, the Soviet conquest of Af­rica is continuing without any ef­fective opposition from the United States or any Western power in the opinion of Judf.e Robert Mor­ris, former counsel to a United States Senate investigation com­mittee and currently President of the University of Dallas. He charges that a preponderant­ly Communist "coalition govern­ment" has been set up in the Con­go by the United Nations Com­mand with our tacit support and that the Minister of Interior in charge of security and policy ac­tivity is a Communist with the suoport of the Lumumba Parlia­ment. That the United States should have permitted this cancerous sit­uation to be nurtured in a coun­try where there is no Communist support whatever among the peo­ple, may prove to be the most CO!;t­ly disaster of the early 1960's, he charges. In Angola, we are actually sup .. porting, through the United Na~ tions. the Czech-trained terrorists who are killing thousands of Por­tugese, black, colored and white, in order to give the international agencies a pretext to eliminate Western influence from that Por­tugese province, he adds. In his opinion, the Senate For­eign Relations Committee and the Senate Internal Security Subcom­mittee should conduct a thorough investigation into the deterio:ation of Western influence in Afnca. New Frontier To Be The Subject Of Discussion Conservative leaders from near­ly every State are expected to at· tend the meeting called by We, the People at the Sheraton-Chicago Hotel in Chicago on September 15 for a three day session. Around 1,000 are expected to attend the meeting and the discus­sions will have to do largelv with the manner in which the Fabian­Marxist Front is using the New Frontier, according to Harry T. Ev­eringham, national executive vice president of We, the People. Among the speakers will be Dr. George Benson, president of Hard· ing College, Searcy, Arkansas; Dr. Nicholas Nyaradi, director School of International Studies, Bradley University and formerly Minister of Finance in Hungary and Robert Welch, founder of the John Birch Society. Stewart Udall, Secretary of the Interior and notoriously unfriend­ly to the American Free Enterprise system made a speech in Seattle recently before the convention of the Western States Land Commis· sioners Association in which he vigorously attacked "the private power lobby" for what he said were attempts to block the world's largest atomic power plant in the State of Washington. Fortunately, however, the House of Represen­tatives in Washington later killed this proposal by a vote of 235 to 164, much to Udall's chagrin. So F v September, 1961 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 5 Fulbright's Retirement To Private Life Would Constitute A Great Public Service It is to be hoped that the people of Arkansas were as shocked and alarmed as the balance of the nation over the revelation of Senator J. W. Fulbright's memorandum to the Defense Department and the White House which was suppressed for a month before it was publicly exposed by Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina. This memorandum, in effect, and stripped of its high-flown verbi­age, protested any program in the armed services desi~ned to inspire loyalty on the part of fighting men for this country and any effort by their superior officers to acquaint them with the menace of Communism and the various guises under which it operates. The Arkansas senator gave as his reason for this demand the fact that these loyalty programs "may well become important obstacles to public acceptance of the President's program and leadership, if they are not already." In other words, the chairman of the powerful Foreign Relations Committee oJ the United States Senate fears that any in telli~ent ex­planation to the nation's fighting men of the Communist ideology will reveal to the public the congeniality of some of the President's recom­mendations with this ideology and as between the national security and the conversion of the planks of the Democratic platform into legis­lative enactments, he prefers the latter. In this memorandum the senator charges that these loyalty pro­grams are directly due to "radicalism on the right" and nowhere in his discussion is there any reference to "subversion on the left." Since 1942 when this egghead Rhodes scholar and Oxford educated Socialist came to the Senate, charges bv the hundreds have been made of Communist infiltration in various Washington a!!encies, and never refuted, but if Fulbri.eht wrote any memorandums in protest aeainst this invasion of our governing institutions by Soviet agents, we can find no record of it. Following Fulbright's plea in this memorandum that no further at­tempts to expose Communism be made by military leaders, Secretary of Defense McNamara issued a directive to this effect, by instructing that "authority to provide guidance for all informational programs be directed by the Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs." Another dangerous aftermath of the Fulbrieht memorandum was the decision by the Government lnformation Subcommittee, headed by Representative John Emerson Moss of California, to make an in­vestigation of the Armed Services not for the purpose of exposing the virus of "left-wing subversion" which may be operating within that group but to disclose any "right-wing radicalism" which may be evident in that area. Fulbright comes up for re-election in 1962 and while it is strictly the business of the voters of Arkansas to decide whether or not he represents the sentiment of the majority of the people of that great State and should be retained we believe that there would be a definite lessening of fearful anxiety on the part of the American people as a whole if the head of the great Foreign Relations Committee of the Senate who places political party expediency above the nation's internal security, should be retired to private life. 'Walker Will Come Through With An Honor Kennedy May Never Know' Those who did not read Westbrook Pegler's castigation of those tesponsible for the humiliation of General Edwin A. Walker missed some of the most powerful and profound writing of this century. A short quote: "President Kennedy knowing the precious rarity of the character which General Walker showed and the beauty of the quality which Walker was imparting as Birch doctrine to the young men of a morally bedraggled American Army, truckled to a vile cabal with its home in the political cesspools of New York. Thus, he took General Walker away from his soldiers. Ordinarily a General so relieved suffers irre­parable disgrace. But this General will come through with an honor which Kennedy, the politician, may yearn for to his last hour and never know." If there is no doubt about us keeping our commitment to West Germany, why was it necessary for Lyndon Johnson to rush over to that country and, after posing for his picture, to tell the German people that 'The United States will not Retreat?" And also, why is betting even on the subject here at home? Are we protesting too much and is it going to be another case of China and other Countries who were allowed to fall to the Soviets "without letting it be known they were pushed?" A California newspaper says that "The official flower of the District of Columbia is the American Beau­ty Rose." A friend of ours in Sau­salito, California, suggests that the African Violet would be more ap­propriate. It is generally recognized by all intelligent persons that the disor­ganized and war-like state of the world is due largely to interference and meddling on the part of na­tions into the affairs of other coun­tries. For this reason, every thoughtful American will consider it an honor to be designated as an "isolationist." Arguments Are Persuasive But Example Is Unanswerable President Kennedy keeps harp­ing on the fact that one of the aims of his administration is to abolish poverty throughout the world. This objective is fine but we be­lieve that his plan will be regard­ed with less suspicion if he mixes a little consistency with his am­bitious program and spends some of his own money in the project rather than strictly the funds of other people which he has no right to dispose of. For example, it is generally known that his own personal for­tune is around $10,000,000 and that his family is worth something over $200,000,000. The contribution of $1 ,000,- 000 of Kennedy family funds to this program, for instance, would not, of course, result in the abol­ishment of poverty throughout the world but it would prove that the President is willing to put his money where his heart is and give stability to his intentions by his own personal participation in the fantastic program he has planned. Also he talks a lot about the evils of segregation of the races and is not bashful in expressing the belief that there should be mixing on all levels. To be consistent on that, we suggest that when he leaves the White House instead of moving back into a mansion in a restrict­ed neighborhood with no Negroes wthin a mile, that he take up resi­dence in one of the black slums of Washington where his children can freely run the alleys with lit­tle pickaninnies. On the face of it, this may seem a far-fetched suggestion but on second thought it must be admit­ted that there are no arguments as persuasive as personal example and if the President really means what he says about these two so­cial subjects, he will set the pace himself by donating a part of his own immense fortune to the abol­ishment of poverty and by re­adjusting his personal standard of living to conform to racial coex­istance on an intimate basis. Reciprocal Trade A9reement Is Impoverishing American Industry Mr. Kennedy is displaying the same measure of antagoni sm for the American free enterprise sys­tem that former President Eisen­hower showed in his efforts to pauperize American producers while promoting the welfare of foreign business interests. Time and again it was pointed out to Mr. Eisenhower that the infamous reciprocal trade agree­ment, hatched up during Roose­velt's administration, was destroy­ing the textile and other indus­tries in the United States because of ruinous foreign competition. Repeatedly the former President demonstrated that he was a One­Worlder and interested primarily in the prosperity of foreign nations and he refused to exercise the au­thority embodied in the act for executive action in the case of domestic industries suffering from its operation. On last May 17 the United States Tariff Commission decided with the concurrence of all its members, that importations of sheet glass into this country had reached such proportions that the domestic glass industry could not long survive. The Commission recommended that the President order a higher Every head of a bus company, lunch room, or other public fa­cility which orders integration of the races in their particular busi­ness, does so on his own initiative and because he is in sympathy with the Kremlin's conspiracy to bring about racial trouble in the United States. He does not have an illegal and un-Constitutional ruling of the Supreme Court to back him up as school officials do. tariff on this product which he had the authority to do. Mr. Kennedy refused to take this action which would have rescued an American industry from devas­tating foreign competition. And this refusal was in spite of. the fact that during the cam­paign he raved and ranted all over West Virginia, principal producer ?f glass in the United States, point­mg out . that unemployment and poverty m that great State made it a "disaster area" and after he ~as elected, he never stopped un­til he had secured legislation ap­propriating millions of dollars to ~est Virginia under the plea that - 1t was a "disaster area." We submit that it is deliberate malfeasance of office and official misconduct when a President of the United States joins in thwart­ing the natural laws of economics and in upholding artificial barriers against American producers in or­der to create a "disaster area" and force the people of a Sovereign State on a government dole. The strangling of American in­dustry is a high price for the peo­ple of this Republic to be forced to pay in order that the cause of International Socialism may be materially advanced. Perhaps we are just congenitally stupid, but for the life of us we can't understand why the adminis­tration in Washington is working so hard to build up our stockpile of weapons with one hand and, with the other, trying to bring about disarmament. Can't the Pres­ident make up his mind, for ~ete's sake, whether he wants to arm or disarm? Pogo 6 CHRIST!AH CRUSADE CONVf~!T!ON DRAWS ATTENDANCE OF 5,000 The Third Annual Christian Cru. sade National Convention met in Tulsa for three days beginning Au­gust 4 with Dr. Billy James Hargis of that city as the chief luminary in a star-studded program of pa­triots whose names have become outstand;n~ in the current fight for the survival of Americanism. The American peoole are heavily indebted to Dr. Hargis for his brave and coura~eous fight against one of the most dangerous elements of subversion now engaged in a massive effort to destroy Consti­tutional Government in the United States and, along with it, to up­root Christianity throughout the world. This element is composed of a minority grouo occupying ouJ. pits in American churches, and es· pecially in the National Council of Churches, whose pro·Commu­nist activities have helped the spread of that noisonous idealogy to all corners of the earth. Although small in number, in comparison with the great major· ity of dedicated men of the cloth in the United States, it is well or­ganized and its influence in dic­tating the economic and social pol· icies of the American Renublic in recent years is recognized and de­plored by all loyal citizens. The forthright and outspoken Dr. Hargis has pulled no punches and has perhaps been responsible for awakening more Americans to the peri\ of Communist infiltration in the churches than any other in-dividual or group in the far-flung fight now being waged by scores of organizations throughout the land. The Tulsa Convention drew an attendance of more than five thous­and and among the other noted speakers during the three day ses­sion were Dean Clarence Manion of Indiana, Tom Anderson of Ten­nessee, Robert Welch of Massa­chusetts, Col. Lawrence Bunker of Massachusetts, Major General C. A. Willoughby of Washington D.C., Harry T. Everingham of Illinois, Dr. Bob Jones of South Carolina, Dr. G. Arch Weniger of California, Willis Carto and many others who have long been identified with the fight against Communism. This fall Dr. Hargis will broad­cast over a greatly enlarged radio network when his crusade to save America from the deadly menace of Communism is expected to draw additional thousands of Americans to the cause to which he is de­voting his life. Too Much Kennedy (Dallas Morning News) JFK-Jobs for Kinfolks-would seem to include Edward Kennedy, the President's youngest brother. Eddie showed up in Northwestern _ ,..1 Brazil with this pitch for an audi­ence of ragged Brazilian back­country natives: ~<President Ken­nedy is personally concerned with your welfare and, as proof of this, has sent me, his own brother, to talk to you as an equal." And one of the )':ddie Kennedy entourage, when the party got to Argentina, lectured a group of lo- THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Six Southern Senators Join Northern Radica~s In Vote On Aid Amendment One of the most disgraceful ex­amples ever presented to the American people of the bi-partisan corruption in Congress which is slowly eroding the Constitution and bankrupting the Republic, was afforded in the vote of the Senate on an amendment to the foreign aid bill on August 11. This bill not only committed this country to a foreign aid program for five years during which time it is proposed to dispose of $8,800,- 000.000 of American taxpayers money but it also permitted the President to by-pass Congression­al appropriations in the matter and allowed him to sneak into the back door of the Federal treasury and filch whatever funds he may need when some foreign grafter gets to him with a proposition that meets his fancy. Senator Harry Flood Byrd of Virginia. in a desperate attempt to put some semblance of order into the proceedings involved when the Federal treasury is robbed for the benefit of foreign nations, offered an amendment which would have forced annual Congressional ap­propriations, rather than a five year lump sum, but the amend· ment was defeated by a vote of 56 to 39. And voting right along with such wild-eyed radicals from the North and East as Javits, Humph· rey and Douglas were the follow· ing from the so~called Conserva· tive South: J. W. Fulbright of Ar­kansas, Albert Gore of Tennessee, Lister Hill of Alabama; Estes Ke­Fauver of Tennessee; Russell B. Long of Louisiana; and John Sparkman of Alabama. Apparent­ly they found themselves utterly unable to resist White House pres­sure including threats of withdraw­al of patronage and the withhold­ing of Federal judgeships and oth~ er plums which slick politicians know so well how to effectively dangle before weaklings and in­fluence their official action. So, in spite of almost universal opposi· tion in the South to foreign aid, these six Southern renegades were willing to betray their constituents by not only voting for this vicious bill but sponsoring it for five years. Ten Republicans joined with 46 Democrats in voting for the amendment and 16 Democrats joined with 23 Republicans in vot­ing against it. The vote on this amendment puts a terrifying emphasis on the fact that a majority of the mem· bers of the United States Senate cannot be depended upon to pro­tect American taxpayers and our own financial security and are al­ways ready to sell us out. Mr. Sam Broadens His Political Domain To Include The Legislature Of Texas The dictatorial power of Mr. Sam Rayburn has overreached Congress and is now broadened to include the Texas Legislature where his puppets, at his com· mand, passed a bill at the recent special session requiring run-offs on Congressional elections. Previously Mr. Sam had tele­phoned the governor and ordered him to include this matter in his call for a special session. Other­wise, under the Constitution, the subject could not have been acted upon. Mr. Sam does not want any more Republicans sent to Washington from Texas because it will break his stranglehold on the Texas dele· gation which was weakened when Speaking of the Fulbright Mem· orandum which the Arkansas sen­ator is now said to wish that he had eaten instead of releasing, a good Tennessee patriot has this to say: "It was unquestionably the most shocking document ever brought to light since Alger Hiss and the 'Pumpkin Papers.• It is frightening to think they're so con­fident of themselves that they even dare commit such treasonable thoughts to paper." cal leaders to the effect that Ar· gentina must change its ways and get on the ball like dynamic Brazil. And they do say that shortly Massachusetts is to be offered the chance to get on the ball and elect Eddie to the United States Senate -as soon as he attains the mini· mum qualifying age of 30. He is willing to begin at the bottom. Dallas elected Bruce Alger to Con­gress some years ago. An infuriated opponent of the bill requiring run-offs in Texas elections prepared a sarcastic reso .. lution for introduction in the House which extended Rayburn "our utter and humble thanks for his unselfish helpfulness in resolv .. ing our problems deep in the heart of Texas" and which declared that "there is no way to define the depth of feeling by members of this House toward the Honorable Mr. Rayburn for his great Interest in this bill and for his heavy hand so generously extended in bring. ing about its passage." But the Speaker of the House, who is also one of Mr. Sam's boys refused to let it come before the House for a vote. What great statesmen we have in Washington! They adopt poll· cies which destroy American in .. dustries in certain localities and then pass a taw allotting millions ot dollars to that "disaster area" - when they are responsible for the "disaster . ., President Kennedy st.ates that he wants every government em .. ploye to have a good conduct badge by earning it. In this connection the Fort Worth Press said in parte " •• There ought to be a strictly enforced code for official conduct especially for some of the higher officials. This would deal with such things as waste, truth in Informa­tion and the general use of good sense in tha taxpayera• interests." Sapfembar, I 961 Dal'as Citizens Mistake Cowardice For Courage Something called the Dallas Cit­izens Council is making much of the fact that integration of the schools in that city is going to be accomplished peacefully and that they are "setting the tone for com­pliance with federal laws without damaging violence." Although this group is giving itself a pat on the back for prac· tieing what they regard as good citizenship, the truth is that those who belong to this group are sim­ply cringing and servile cowards and are merely taking the Kremlin· inspired Supreme Court ruling ly· ing down and making no effort to combat this illegal and un~Con­stitutional decision on the part of the Court. One of the leaders of the Coun· cil stressed in the press the fact that by complying with this in· famous ruling and thereby prevent­ing violence, they are avoiding "the terrific emotional upset to the young'' which would ensue if pro· test were made against the adop· tion of the unnatural policy of in· tegrating the races. It Is all very well to excustt cowardice in this manner and to work up an alibi for pure lack of courage in the disposition of the matter but what about the "emo­tional upset" that wilt result in the mixing of white and black children which is against nature and opposed to a ll the laws of de· cency which have governed man. kind since the beginning of time? Adults have sidestepped their responsibility in Dallas and salved their conscience by insisting that they are acting to avoid violence but they have shown no concern whatever for the morals, the health and general welfare of the school children of that city. If the Dallas Citizens Council wanted to perform as they did, that Is their business and they had a perfect right to do so If they are willing to sacrifice the well being of their children, but they should refrain from congratulating them­selves on their cowardly behavior in this vital matter. We do not know what the Dal· las Citizens Count::il is or who com• pose its membership but we ven• ture the suggestion that it has no connection with responsible organ• izations of that same name in Mis .. sfssippi, Alabama and other South· ems States or In other Texas cities whose courageous fight In behalf of the Rights of the States to conduct their schools has won them the respect and admiration of all right-thinking Americans re­gardless of the section of the coun .. try from which they come.

September, 1961 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 7 California Constituent Says What He Thinks Of Moss Investigation What patriotic Americans all over the United States think of the proposed Congressional inves­tigation designed to weed out loy­alty and patriotism among mem­bers of the Armed Forces is, we believe, reflected in the following letter which one of the consti­tuents of Congressman Moss, Cali­fornia, and Chairman of the pro­posed investigation, addressed to him. You are certainly well aware of the high esteem in which the taxpayers of the Third Congressional District hold you, having been elected to the 87th Congress without opposition. However, I have just learned that you are plan­ning on investigating the Armed Forces, of all things!

The publicity devoted to the event could not have been bought for a billion dollars and the Com­rnies must have been filled with joy at the rich harvest they reap­ed. But the strange thing was that in all this outcry about the Soviets being ahead of the United States in this field not one paper, so far as we can find out, reminded the American people of the fact that the Soviets were ahead of us be­cause of treasonable acts on the part of Americans in high places. •. Nothing was said about the tons of material which was sent out of this country during world war H by Harry Hopkins which enabled the Communists to advance their ''We will use any ruse, dodges, tricks, cunning, unlawful meth­ods, concealment and veiling of the truth." Mr. David Lawrence points out that the above declara­tion of purpose appeared in the Communist Party platform of 1919 and has never been changed. And still our leaders continue their asinine practice of talking and con­ferring with these outlaws who have no more moral responsibility than a herd of swine. experiments in nuclear warfare, aJI of which has been revealed by Major George Racey Jordon who was in charge of an air station in Montana through which supplies were shipped. Neither was any­thing said about the Ware Com­munist Cell in Washington du,-.. ing the war, the giving of nuclear secrets to Russia by subversive American scientists, the defections of employes in defense plants to the Commu­nist side and scores of other in­stances of treason on the part of American citizens which gave RJs­sia its start in atomic development and enabled the Communists to outstrip us in this field. While giving the Soviets this valuable publicity, it would seem that the responsibility of the Amer­ican press would have been to also remind the people of the United States WHY the Communists have been able to relegate us to second place in an area where we were supreme until our betrayal by our own people. From a patriot in Massachu­setts: 'The enemy is large and tough, but with God on our side, and the ever mounting ava)anche of true, hard, devastating facts now hitting the citizenry, the de­ceivers will have a hard time to get around them.

Invitation To 'Rat Pack' Provokes Widespread Protest To White House It is reliably reported that sel­dom has a non-government action inspired such widespread opposi­tion and universal disgust as that of the President's father, Joseph Kennedy who was widely reported in the press as having invited the Hollywood ·•rat pack" to visit him at his home on the French Riviera recently. Radio commentators report that protests descended on the White House in such volume that the elder Kennedy was forced to make the public explanation that the "rat pack" would not be quarter­ed in his home but would be put up at a nearby hotel. The Hollywood "rat pack" is composed of notorious characters in the movie colony whose private and public behavior would scarce­ly seem to commend them to the favorable attention and courtesy of a member of the family of the nation's Chief Executive, and the motive of the senior Kennedy in singling them out for this honor defies explanation. The "rat pack" is bi-racial. Other members of the strange and socially erratic Kennedy fam­ily might have indulged in this unorthodox behavior without oc­casioning any great surprise but mo~t people thought better of the father of the tribe. Heretofore he has been largely regarded as a nor­mal member of society and as having a proper regard for the conventions which are supposed to dictate the social behavior of our better class citizens; Surely the elder Kennedy num­bers among his friends plenty of well-bred and respected persons and is not compelled to go to such lengths in selecting visitors to his palatial home. 66,844 Persons Added To Federal Payroll In Past Five Months Unemployment Has Been Caused By Those Who Howl The loudest Washington officials deplore un­employment in this country, as in­deed do all good Americans. but why shouldn' there be unemploy­ment? The actions of these same offi­cials, including and especially mem­bers of Congress, have hamstrung industry and the American Free Enterprise system by policies and legislation designed to give all advantages to foreigners and put industry in this coun­try out of business. This they have done very successfully and naturally emoloyment has fall­en off as a result. If Congress could be cleaned up and all radicals weeded out and legislation initiated having as it.s objective the encouragement and support of American producers, it would be no time at all until most of those desiring employment could be fitted into jobs. Also about 10,000,000 unneces­sary parasites ~ho are living off the Federal government could be fired from those jobs and absorb­ed by private jndustry. How About Giving Alger Hiss Next Job That Comes Up? The eyes of informed Americans must have bugged out when they read in the press on August 18th that Lauchlin Currie, no less, is one of the top planners in the spending of the $20,000,000,000 to be used in the President's "Alliance for Progress'" Program in Latin Amer­ica. Currie is the gent designated by Elizabeth Bentley, once prominent in Communist Party circles, as a Soviet spy. Miss Bentley made this charge in sworn testimony .to the Every candidate for President of the United States mumbles dur­ing the campaign about "economy in government" so it is well to see how the "economy" program is shaping up at the present time. During the first five months of the Kennedy administration, the number of Federal employes has increased by 66 844 ~rsons. Jn February there was an in­crease of 5,304; in March an in­crease of 7,089; in April an increase of 12,455; in May. 8.608; in June an increase of 33.393. These fig­ures are furnished by Senator Wal­lace Bennett of Utah. Mr. Kennedy has deplored the amount of unemployment and ap­parently he is going to cure the situation by eventually putting all the unemployed on the Federal payroll. HERE WE GO ALL OVER AGAIN Jt was widely believed that the folly of sending scrap iron to Japan which was later made into bullets which killed our own men had taught a lesson to those degener­ate Americans who engaged in this crime against their country. But press notices on August 18 reported that we are now sending scrap iron to Communist Yugo­slavia presumably to aid them in also shooting at us with bullets rnade from our own material. Senator John Tower of Texas is reported to be vigorously protest­ing the shipments but the Com­merce Department is reported in favor of the project. Ye gods! What next?

Page I Great American Patriot Dies In New Orleans Mr. John U. Barr of New Or­leans who died recently was one of the stoutest champions of Con­stitutional Government in the na­tion and his death will be mourn­ed by all those who fear for the survival of the Republic unless the Fabian Socialism which is ram­pant in Washington can be halted. The New Orleans Times-Picay­une on August 2, had this to say concerning the passing of Mr. Barr: In the death ·at 72 of John U. Barr Sr., both city and nation lost a man of distinction. It is safe to say he was in the forefront of the struggle for conservatism and com­mon sense, opposing changes that threaten the dissolution of funda­mental American principles and chancP.s of success. On the political front he headed as early as 1944 the Byrd for President movement and in 1948 was prominent in the States' Rights party. Since 1955 he was chairman of the Federation for Constitutional Government. His voice was clear and incisive­a constant call for economic sta­bility. for individual freedom and for balanced freedoms, for un­ashamed dedication to patriotism. Both during World War H and at other times he served as con­sultant or adviser in important war­effort or national undertakings; likewise, in affairs of the United States Chamber of Commerce and in orivate business. On the home and Louisiana fronts he was active in promotion of civil service, good government, civic improvement in general, upbuilding of business and industry, welfare of orphans, etc. The old Association of Commerce, the Louisiana Manufacturers' Assn., Southern States Industrial Council, knew him well, and his other affiliations were numerous. He was a patriot and fighter, not easily spared. Ho!lvwood Is Going To Whip Hitler Yet Hollywood continues its war against the Nazis and it is report­ed that no less than 15 motion pic­tures on the subject will have been released by the end of 1961 in which they portray Nazis still as the enemy the United States must whip in order to survive. It is to be hoped that when they finally get Hitler killed off that the moguls of Hollywood will then turn their guns against Khrush­chev and Communism which some people think represents the current threat against the survival of the American Republic. It has been repeatedly charged that the movie capital is swarm­ing with Reds and that the motion picture industry is the place where they are holed up so thick they could not be stirred with a stick and a good way to disprove this charge would be for makers of pictures to start fighting the man who says he will bury us and quit shadowboxing with a figure who has been in his grave for sixteen years. THI SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVI September, 1961 In The Final Analysis Congress Is Responsible Simple Plan That For Whatever Happens To American Republic :::~d 1;tr~ ~~~~sunism Recently a retired executive of an oil company said to us: "When you first started the Southern Conservative, I thought your editorials were entirely too bitter and I doubted that you knew what you were talking about. I did not see how the situation could be as bad as you painted it. Now I know better and the condition of the country proves that you did not exaggerate in the slightest. I apologize for my mistake." Our editorials were bitter and will continue to be as long as we are able to publish the paper and our national leaders keep doing a hatchet job on the Constitution and the American Free Enterprise System. We have no intention of retracting one word we have said about those who are betraying us in Washington. We only wish we had said more to refuse to take back. When we started the Southern Conservative twelve years ago, we had no intention of filling its pages with sissy, namby-pamby and wishy-washy drivel. There is too much of that stuff cluttering up the nation's press now with about seventy-five per cent of our leading newspapers shaping their editorial policies not in the interest of the security and welfare of the American Republic but on the social and economic philosophy of their Marxist-minded advertisers. The message we have tried to put over is that the American people are the helpless victims of collective and coordinated treason on the part of their elected officials who are conniving in a massive conspiracy to destroy Constitutional Government in the United States and install a Socialist Dictatorship in the American Republic. Whether pl~in and unvarnished stupidity or actual disloyalty is back of this offtcial traitorous behavior is a matter of debate but one thing is certain and that is that in a massed assault such as that now being aimed at our governing system, the blundering of fools can be as disastrous as the deliberate knavery of scoundrels. Personally, we believe that there are a few hard-core subversives among those who shape American domestic and foreign policy who know exactly what they are doing and who are carrying out the man­d~ te of World Conspirators but that the gre~t majority of so-called Ltberals are soft-headed saps who actually believe some of the things they say and who have no conception of the irreparable damage they are doing to our matchless form of government by their continued sponsorship of suicidal Marxist legislation under the guise of social reform. Any intelligent and thoughtful American who carefully reviews the fiscal, economic and social policies emanating from Washington including the adoption of measures deliberately designed to achieve national bankruptcy, the open defiance of all economic laws and rules of self~interest and the determination to damn the country with the horrors of forced racial mixing, cannot escape the definite conviction that if, during the past twenty five years, we had drafted our national leadership from inside the walls of the nation's insane asylums, the re~ suits could have been no more disastrous. We have had four One-Worlders and International Socialists in a row as Presidents of the United States but, even so, if we had a power­ful, independent and responsible Congress dedicated primarily and un~ equivocally to the welfare and internal security of this country, Con .. stitutional Government would survive because the authority of the legislative body is supreme so far as the three divisions of the Federal government are concerned and there is no damage which the Executive and Judicial branches could inflict that the Congress could not cure. For this reason we will continue to aim our darts at the nation's duly elected lawmakers and especially those in the Senate of the United States who, under the Constitution, constitute the American court of last resort in the matter of protecting the rights of the people, of property and of the States. Sherman's March Through Georgia Was Tame Compared To New Raid Sherman's infamous March Through Georgia in the sixties was one of the most devastating raids in the history of this nation and destroyed everything in its path. But it was not one-two-three to the march of the NAACP a hundred years later which threatens to destroy all the cultural advantages and social gains which this great Southern metropolis has gradually re .. established since the rape of the South in RecoQstruction days. This Communist-ridden organization with degenerate Whites and a few vicious Negroes as leaders, led a march on the city of Atlanta within recent years causing the State legislature to repeal its segrega~ tion laws, State and National leaders of Georgia to retreat from a massive policy of resistance to tyranny and leading citizens with an otherwise respectable record, to enlist in a campaign to integrate its schools and thereby mongreolize its society. The first Fall of Atlanta saw the total destruction of property and of human lives. The second Fall of Atlanta aims at the destruction of principle• which will contribute to the fall of White civilization. Practically everybody, Including the Rev. Billy Graham, is offering a plan which would end the world crisis and contribute to the end of the cold war and the restora· tion of peace, so it does not seem any more fantastic that we, too, should offer one. Our plan is not original and has been suggested many times but, since it embodies common sense, our national leaders have laughed it off. First, withdraw recognition from Communist Russia and order her representatives out of the country. Second, withdraw membership of the United States in the United Nations and order that motley crew of subversives and saboteurs to move headquarters to some oth· er country. These two moves would paralyze the world influence of the Soviet Union quicker than any action that could be taken and would reduce them to the status they existed under before Roosevelt took them to his heart and elevated them into the society of decent nations. Recognition by the United States, "summit conferences" with their leaders, entertaining them in this country at the expense of the tax­payers and unlimited and slanted publicity given them by the left .. wing press of this nation has been almost solely responsible for the fact that Communism is spreading throughout the world like the dead· ly contagion which it is. Federal Government Borrows Sixteen Billion Dollars To Give Away On July 14 the press of the na• tlon carried the information that the United States Treasury was going to borrow $16,000,000,000 to help finance this year's expected budget deficit of at least $4,000,· 000,000. It was remarked in the press release that this was the most massive borrowing spree since 1959, but what it didn't say was that this figure will probably be exceeded if the squanderers keep on at the rate they are going. What wonderful administrators of the Federal government we have when we can't pay our own debt but continue to give away billions of dollars with the passage of each Socialist measure enacted by Con• gress! If business executives conduct· ed private industry with such crim­inal disregard of the law of eco~ nomics, they would not only run their concerns into bankruptcy but would probably wind up in jail. The whole world has its eyes on the United States and sane people of other countries are probably betting on how long it will be be· fore we blow up financially as our enemies hope we will.
