Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 5 Fori Worth , Texas, July-August, 1954 No. 7-8 The Facts Behind The McCarthy Hearings The United Nations Plans to Democracy Safe From Snake Make Bites Those who are grievously dis­appointed with the performance of the United Nations and disheart­ened at the diplomatic and military defeats suffered by this country since its affiliation With that body, may now -take heart. The World Health Organiza­tion. an auxiliary of United Na­tions and which is called WHO for short. is currently engaged in an undertaking which should more than comoensate for the failure of the parerit organization to live up to its promise to bring peace. un­derstanding and security to all na­tions of the earth. WHO is conducting a snake bite survey on· a global basis with the ultimate objective of develop­ing a uniform remedy which will be available to all world citizens withou t discrimination as to race. color or creed and regardless of the type of serpent which nips their carcass with its venomous f angs. As one \Vho grew up in ct sec· tion of West Texas where one snake bite per capita during an average lifetime was par for the course. we didn't know there was but one remedy for it and. in our wide-eyed innOcence. we thought it had universal sanction. During our chi 1 d h o o d and throughout our adult li fe we have suffered more than our share of all t he accidents in the vast cate­gory of human mishaps but. some­how. we always managed to out­smart the snakes. There is no assurance, however, that we will escape this menace in the future. With our luck at having bizarre and preposterous things happen to us, there is a fifty-fifty chance that we may be bitten by a boa that leaps out of the alley at us as we walk down the street or that our ankle may get punctured by a python as we step from a taxicab. So we are as pleased as punch that these great scientists are fur­rowing their brows in an effort to concoct a universal and demo­cratic antidote for one of man­kind's oldest casualty risks and to come uo with a cure which will hold Old Crow uo to scorn as an ou t-moded produCt of a decadent caoitalistic state. For once, we are [!oing to line un with the Internationalist boys since our aver sion to the currently accepted remedy is only a little less pronounced than our fear of bein '{ snake bit. So we just can't wait for these bril liant world scientists to an­nounce the success of their vast and extensive research into this vital subject and for them to pro­claim to the universe that "Opera­tion Snake Bite" is under control. When they give the word, we intend to go back to the wild and wooly West where we spent many agonizing hours side - stepping those villainous sidewinders, flush a big diamond-back rattler righ t out of his den , wave a United Na­tions flag in h is face and double­dog dare him to bite us. ------ SAFETY SLOGAN ADOPTED BY MALE VOTERS IN CALIFORNIA CAMPAIGN Many who have appraised the amazing situation in California where Jimmy Roosevelt parlayed his wife's charges of marital mis­conduct into a primary congres­sional victory, claim that it was women YOters who put him over. If true. this is mass feminine psy-:-!wlogical reaction wh ich must prove something or other bu t don't ask us what it is. We wouldn't know. Most women object violently to a faithless husband when he happens to be their own but ap­parently the ladies of California's second congressional district feel no such resentment when one of their sisters gets a plugged nickel in the matrimonial game. There is another school of thought on the subject whose fol­lowers disagree with the claim t hat women were responsible for Roose­velt's success in the primary. They insist that his victory was due to the vote of the masculine population of the district who or­ganized themselves behind the suc­cessful candidate with this slogan: "Send Jimmy to Washington. The wife you save may be your own." When Americans watched the televised proceedings of the McCarthy-Pentagon farce sometime ago, they were merely viewing a kaleidoscopic play-back of events in history which have happened before and which will happen again when any fearless and determined in­vestigator of Communist spies gets hot on the trail of the slimy Volga vermin. We like to make much of the fiction that our national policy is rl)lentlessly anti-Com­munist but the record is clear that every t ime a two­fisted, red-blooded and uncompromising American pa­triot strikes pay dirt in d igging for Soviet agents in gov· ernment, he g e ts a keen, sharp knife r ight between his shoulder blades. The subcommittee of the Senate whose members went through the · motions of an "unbiased" investigation of the McCarthy-Stevens frame­up have not turned in a report of their findings and civ ilization will suffer no great set-back if they never do. Composed of three Republicans, three Socialists and one t urncoat, their r eport, when and if r eleased. will probably say everything and mean nothing and will not be worth the paper it is written on . That report. for instance_l_ will not give the background information to which the American people are entitled. It will not reveal the forces back of the conspiracy which resulted in the hearings nor the objectives it was intended to achieve which was, of course, the complete immobil­ization of the McCarthy probe of Communist activities. Neither will it pinpoint the collusion between F air Dea l Democrats, and off-brand Republicans in various offi cial positions from the White House down who banded together to "get McCar thy." It wi ll not high­light the activities of the Department of J ustice toward this end nor point up the wi1ling cooperation of Red educators, Socialist preachers. left-wing lawmakers and journalistic vultu res whose carrion is spread through the columns of pink newspaper chains, all of whom are united in the common cause of protecting Communist agents from exposure by McCarthy's stern 11methods" of operation. The only reoort in connection with the whole matter in which good Americans should concern themselves is the report of a similar con­spiracv to stop an investigation into Communist'«Kctivities in Washington in 1940 and which reveals that there was nothing new in the frame-up agaiP<::t McCarthy and that history was merely repeating itself. This reoort will disclose that tl;le conspiracy al(ainst McCarthy was spearheaded by the same Moscow brain trusters who cut down another American congressional probe of Soviet spies in this country through idcnti,...al methods some years ago. The type of organized pressure exerted against Martin Dies in 1940 and Joseoh R. McCarthy in 1954 and the coordinated overall drive to stifle a Communist probe in Washington in both cases are of such start­ling similarity that they cannot be charged up to chance or passed off as coincidence. Togeth er, thev constitute a firm and definite warninf! served to the American people that there is an oraanized and powerful '{rouo in the United States reaching into high echelons of government. the churches, universities, the press. radio and television which can, and will. go into action when any serious and authentic probe of Communist activities in the tountry ~ets under way. and that they will stop it dead in its tracks. When the conspiracy to sabotage the Dies Committee was launched in 1940. the Reds had it easy. They had the run of the government agen­cies and were on such terms of intimacy with the first family that they were bedding down in the White House. Accordingly, it was not diffi­cult for them to vet Roosevelt to do the job when they were ready to put the screws on Dies. Dies was called to the White House where Roosevelt begged him to RO easv on the Communists and when Dies showed no inclination to comoly. the president got tough and demanded that all future hearings on the subiect first be cleared with the Department of Justice, which was headed at that time bv Roher! H. J ockson. (Contin ued on P age 2) Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTH ERN CONS ERVATIVE July-August, 1954 A Little Marxian Philosophy Is Propounded By One Who Knows Better In our opinion, John J. Williams of Delaware is one of the soundest men jn the United States Senate. However, he went off the deep end recently when, on the floor of the Scnnte, he complained bitterly be­cause the current federal "drouth re­lief progr:.un" in which the govern­ment offers cottonseed pellets at cut- FACTS .. rate prices lor drouth suffering farm­ers, had been utilized by the "fabu­lously rich King Ranch in South Tex­as" which bought the pellets at gov­ernment prices. The senator explained that this pro­gram was intended for "destitute farmers" and not for those who have ''substantial resources." (Continued from Page 1) Immediately following this incident, one of Roosevelt's pink econo­mists duped a New Deal congressman into introducing photostatic copies of letters in the House intended to smear and discredit Dies. These let­ters were later proved to be forgeries and the congressman who intro­duced them so admitted but the damage was done and Dies was com­pelled to fight from there out with his back to the wall until his retirement was finally forced. It will be remembered that similar threats were made during the McCarthy hearings to introduce documents smearing ~cCarthy's aide, Roy M. Cohn. This is a Soviet weapon which rarely fmls to get results. By 1954 the Reds were not so flagrant and open in Washington and were operating more or less underground. So they could not directly use White House contacts in intimidating McCarthy as in the case of Dies and had to employ other methods. So. on December 22, 1953, a Communist publication called "Politi­cal Affairs" carried an "Official Statement from the Communist Party National Committee" over the signatures of William z. Foster, Eliza­beth Gurley Flynn and Pettis Perry instructing Communist Party mem­bers in the United States to step up the smear campaign against the Wisconsin senator and advising American Communists that their slogan for 1954 would be: "Get McCarthy." Moreover, this program called for "An end to the dictatorship of fear, a turning back of the evil tide of McCarthvism-an end of witch-hunting-the abolition of all Congr ess­ional witch-hunt committees, and a halt to the Gestapo-like political activities of the FBI." This proved to be the signal that set off a barrage of abuse ag~inst the Wisconsin senator in which Communist policy-makers were JOmed bv Truman .Fair Dealers, Eisenhower Fair Dealers. left-wing columnists, ~~uC~~~~~~~~v~~~tf~i~e~s0~~~~t J~~~c~:;Jo:;'!nk~r~~u~a~~~~~r;~f:~ Reds in a coorrlinated effort to comply with Moscow's demands to "Get McCarthy." Followin~ this dictum from "Political Affairs'', the campaign against the Wisconsin senator got into full swing . . It was kicked off at a White House meeting participated in bv top­ranking Dewey Republicans who were later joined by Fair Deal Demo­crats inrluding a political climber from Missouri. He, in turn, rang in one of Truman's legal bea.gles who had advised the Pendergast mes­sen, fter boy on the sam@! subiect when he, as president, was making similar-but unsuccessful-attempts also to "get McCarthy." Dies was hounded out of Congress and though he was later re-elect­ed to a seat at large, his will to fight Communists appears to have been blunted. McCarthv is made of sterner stuff and his voice can't be silenc­ed, his operations halted or his hunt for Communists checked unless the lame-brain Republicans who are fighting him succeed in electing a Democratic Senate. Other similarities in the case of the Texas congressman and that o! the Wisconsin senator are worth noting. Two of the most able investigators on the McCarthy staff were snatched up by the Armed Services even though we are not at war. David Schine who had rendered outstanding service in that capacity without pay or hope of reward, was suddenly found to be indispensable to the Army and especially in doing Kitchen Police. Roy Cohn, Mc­Carthy's valuable right-hand man was ordered to report for duty in the Reserves right in the middle of the hearings. As this is written there are indications that he will either be forced to resign or get fired by the left-wing Iiiiiputians on the committee. Robert Stripling who uncovered valuable leads on Communist activity while serving as chief investigator for the Dies Committee, and especially in the matter of the Communist-packed Political Action Committee of the CIO, received a peremptory order to report to his draft board. Mr. Stripling was thirty years old at the time and was a pre-Pearl Harbor father but when deferment was requested on the ground that his services were indispensable in tracking down Communists, the draft board said "nothing doing." Later the draft board chairman told Stripling: '·There's a lot of pressure on us to put you in the Army. You're being ordered in right from the top on direct orders from the staff director." That line of bunk sounds like New and Fair Deal propaganda in which Karl Marx' theory "from each accord­ing to his means and to each according to his need" was strongly emphasized. In the first place no such legislation should be on the statute books in which one segment of our population is extended favors and guaranteed against loss while others have to take their chances and gamble on the haz­ards, misfortunes and risks which confront all human endeavor. The senator should have directed his crit­icism against the legislation and not the application of it. The senator's speech, however, was not a total loss for during the course of his remarks he called public at­tention to the fact that a Department of Agriculture official, K. L. Scott, is a ''holdover New Deal bureaucrat" who got $10,000 per year under the previous two administrations and who, instead of being fired when Eis­enhower came to power, had his sal­ary upped to $14,000. It is in the exposure of official misbehavior like this that the Dela­ware senator excels and we hope that he devotes his time to that phase of public service in future. In the meantime, we would gently remind him that Congress can't pass laws to aid agricultural interests and specify that it shall benefit only "destitute farmers" and exclude those who are more prosperous. That would be class legislation, or to be more specific, outright Socialism. For another striking illustration of parallel incidents in the Dies and McCarthy cases, let's take the promotion of the Communist Peress and his honorable discharge from the Army. Peress, as McCarthy disclosed to the embarrassment of Army of­ficials, was a New York dentist who had been accepted into the Army even after he refused to take the Oath of Loyalty and who, when asked by McCarthy if he were a member of the Communist Party hid behind the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer. While McCarthy was taking steps to have hirn bounced out of the services, some one in the Penta.aon-whose name will never be dis­closed to the taxpayers who employed him-gave Peress a promotion and an honorable discharge. Martin Kamen was the Peress of the Diec; era. Kamen was a scient­i" t enP,'a,geci in metalurgic work at a lare:e Mid-Western univer.c.itv at that time. He was removed from his position there when FBI and other securitv officers claimed th~t he was a subversive agent. He then went into the Army as a second lieutenant, was later transferred to the South Pacific where he was promoted and came out of the Army as a Captain. The Justice Department's interference into the affairs of a con~es­~ innal committee is not new either and the collusion of that agency with White House advisers in trying to stop McCarthy had a precedent in the action taken by that department in the Dies case. As stated above. Dies h~d been forced to oromise Roosevelt that he 'would clear his hearings with the Department of J ustice. Meantime, the Dies Committee had f'Ollected evidence on J apanese spying along the P~ci fif' Coast and in Hawaii. When hie; case against the Jaos w::.c; com­plete. Dies was rP.ady to spring it, and he informed the J ustice Deuart­ment of nrooosed hearine:::; in the matter, that ag-ency clamoed down "" him. He wa.< informerl that thP Pre,ident. the SPcretarv of State and the Attorney General deemed it inadvisable to hold the hearings at that time. There are those who, to this day, maintain that if Dies had been permitted to disclose information in pos::.ession of the Comq1ittee to the Amerie~n oeople, the Japs would have been prevented from attacking Pearl Harbor. Durin<: the McCarthy hearings, counsel for the Army, prodded by ADA hatchet men on the committee. worked themselves into a lather trving to create a national scandal out of the simole and natural e!Iorts of Private Schine's friends to get him a commission in the Armv. even though he would seem to be vastly more aualified than many achieving this ambition. From all the hullaballoo, television viewers probably got the impression that he was unworthy to emoty the garbage cans at boot camp or serve as a second lieutenant's valet. Quite a furor was generated too over Schine's request for passes on week-ends and of this personable vou n~ single man's perfectly under­standable wish to occasionally visit his girl friends. Well, if we cared to go farther_:__ which we do-and present a com­panion case to the Schine affair , we would refer to a lad who attained national notoriety along about 1940 whose name was Joe Lash. When the Dies Committee made inquiries as to why Lash had not been inducted into the Army, they were informed by his New York draft board that he had been deferred on request of persons in the White House. In spite of this intervention. however. he was later inducted where­upon Eleanor Roosevelt started moving heaven and earth to get him a commission in Naval Intelligence, without success. In the little matter of his week-end passes, Army officers at the camp where Lash was stationed have told how Eleanor would come breezing uo in an official White House automobile and toot the horn. ~:i~he ';;'~u~~db~~~~~.':t:k~a~~t~~ru~:~s~uch as a by-your-leave, climb in, We don't remember any great ruckus being kicked up in that case or any organized protest offered against it.

He says in part: Several of my friends here read your paper and believe in it im­plicitly and naturally some of their enthusiasm rubs off on me. I have read many of your editorials and I think you have an understanding of politics and politicians that is amazing and esPecially for a worn· an. Since this is true, perhaps you can explain something which con­stantly puzzles me - what on earth is wrong with this country? It does not seem like the s,ame one in which I grew up." .• There is so much that is wrong that the entire story cannot be told in one installment but must be related serially. That is why we have papers like the Southern Conservative and similar publica­tions. We can and will, however, give some factual information about the behavior of individuals and groups in this country but whether this behavior is the cause, or the result, of this nation's indisputable prog­ress toward national and world Communism, we wouldn't know. We do not attempt herein to in­terpret human motives or appraise human vagaries. We merely pre­sent facts as we observe them and it is up to the St. Louis citizen and all other alarmed Americans to e ither accept, or reject, our evalua­t ion of the sorry state of the union: and our conclusions as to what is wrong with the country: Every American with the in· telligence of an anemic grubworm knows that spies from the Krem­lin have swarmed into Washing· ton for years and that they have been placed in important positions and given preferred treatment and that Communists are still protect­ed and promoted by the Pentagon. That is one thing that is wrong with this country. Practically every large institu­tion of learning in the United States has one or more Communist or Communist sympathizers on its teaching staff. Communism is per­mitted to be taught students in a subtle and appealing manner so as to intrigue their immature minds and convey the idea that this ideol­ogy is superior to the American conception of government. That is another thing that is wrong with this country. There are very few large Prot­estant churches in leading Ameri­can cities where the pulpit has not been pervaded by Communist in­fluence and where the Gospel of Jesus Christ has not been sup­planted by that of Karl Marx. And putty-spined members of these congregations do not have the char­acter. courage or spiritual integrity to denounce this sacrilege, to with­draw their membership from that infiltrated church or to sit on their hands when the collection plate is passed. That is another thing that is wrong with this country. The perpetuation of our form of government and of the Repub-lie is dependent on the selection of persons of unquestioned hon­esty, unassailable character and unchallenged ability to fill high appointive office. And yet, mem­bers of the United States Senate would vote for the confirmation of a yellow dog rather than dissent when the name of a shabby, unfit and discredited politician is sub­mitted for their approval. This is another thing that is wrong with this country. Multimillionaire philanthrop­ists with millions to toss away will contribute to anything or anybody provided it can be conclusively proved that the recipient of their gifts has never been guilty of speaking out in behalf of pure. un­adulterated Americanism and on further condition that their funds are disbursed solely in the interests of Red educators, scientists, preachers and social reformers with a violent aversion to the American Free Enterprise System. That is another thing that is wrong with this country. Rabbit-hearted industrial exec­utives will privately praise and cheer from the sidelines any un­afraid American patriot who sticks his neck out and publicly denounc­es political pinks and punks in Washington but will retreat behind the fifth amendment and plead that his corporation might be in­criminated if he backed up his compliments with a check when patriotic groups or individuals need material he]o. That is another thing that is wrm1g with this coun-try. ' Members of American business, civic and cultural groups and worn ~ ens clubs would throw u p their hands in holy horror if directly ac­cused of promoting the spread of Communist doctrines in the United States but, seven times out of ten, they will pay high-priced speakers from subversive lecture bureaus to address their organizations who couldn't pass a loyalty test as jani­tor in a top-secret defense industry. That is another thing that is wrong with this country. Bestowers of medals, awards, certificates of merit, "peace prizes" and honorary degrees exact only one qualification from the recipi­ent of these honors and that is that he have to his credit membership in a string of Communist fronts or at least, that he be on record in favor of the United Nations, the surrender of American sovereign­ty to a World Government, teach­ing of UNESCO in the public schools, appeasement of the Chin­ese Communists, and compulsory mixing of white and black stu­dents in educational institutions. That is another thing that is wrong with this country. Members of the Congress who support anti-trust laws and who blow off steam against practices which operate in restraint of trade will tuck their tails and run when proposals are made to include Communist-ridden labor unions in this legislation and to deny them the right to tie up commerce and industry in paralyzing strikes. That is another thing that is v.Tong with this country. And finally, several succeeding We Could learn A Useful lesson From Guatemala Guatemala citizens overthrew a Communist government in double­quick time and gave a heartening demonstration of how a country should perlorm in regard to Com­munism. Instead of running to the United States or the United Nations for help, the patriots down there got together and heaved the dirty Communist bums out of the government and that was that. It was an example of inde(::endent action on the part of self-respecting people which could be followed else­where including this country but what happens here when we try to dislodge even a comparatively small number of Communists from government, from the Army, from defense plants and other strategic places? A large part of our population has become so indoctrinated with Kremlin ideologies that they will swoop down in droves on any American patriot who exposes this menace and visit all their wrath on him, leaving the Com­munists free to continue their dirty work. This applies not only to the Party members in this country but to great numbers of churchmen. teachers, po­liticians in Congress, in government agencies and even on the White House staff. Yes, we could learn a lesson from Guatemala but the chances are that we won't. We are too far gone, what with several national administrations who have tak en the amazing and un­believable attitude that Communists have the right to work with in the institutions they are trying to de­stroy. No wonder Russia and all other countries behind the Iron Curtain re­gard us as :lools and treat us accord­ingly. Oi those despicable Americans who sneer at misguided persons who were formerly merrtbers of the Communist Party but are now trying to make atonement by working with the committees of Congress to expose the Communist conspiracy, we would like to in­quire what would they have these reformed Communists do? Would they prefer that these people re­main silent and thereby aid Com­munists in their plans to over­throw the American government?· Are they angry because these per­sons didn't continue their member­ship in the Party or just what is in their distorted minds any way? Socialist administrations in Wash­ington which have destroyed hu­man initiative, killed ambition and denied the right to achi~ve. have produced a generation of weaklings who stand still while politicians bleed them white in taxes, con­demn their sons to slaughter on foreign battlefields, strip them of their national sovereignty and sub­ject them to every other insult which subversive brains can con­ceive. They are not only too cowardly to protest but are too stupid to even understand what is being done to them. That is prin­cipally what is wrong with this country. Carlos P. Romulo o£ Manila and delvgate from the Philippines to the United Nations had an article in a weekly magazine recently titled "The United Nations Is Dying." Mr. Romulo attributes the gradual demise of that world organization to the lack of support by its member nations. He sees this lack o( interest in the VN as a great tragedy for the world and urges that steps be taken to breathe life into this expiring global conspiracy. We hope that he is right in his contention that the outCit is dying but we don't agree with him concern- ~ ing the forces which are snuffing out its life. Mr. Romulo is one of those naive souls who actually thinks that the United Nations is concerned with world peace when, as a matter of fact, that is about the only thing in which it has not interested itselL It peace were really the objective of the United Nations and i.f they ever devoted one moment in a sincere ef­fort by all member nations in it to bring about peace and understanding, everybody would be for it, for every normal person in the world wants peace. The truth is that it is the medium through which it is hoped to accom­plish Socialist-Communist world gov­ernment with the people of the Unitej States reduced to slave status. In its official Catalogue there are seven hundred and twenty three dif­ferent projects listed and two-thirds o( its staff and two-thirds of its budget are allocated to economic and social projects covering everything from birth control in India to swim­ming pools in Liberia. Peace is not mentioned. If, as claimed by Mr. Romulo, th2 Un ited Nations is dy ing, it is beca use the people o.f t he United States arc awakening to the fact that it is a snare, a delusion and a (raud and that peace in the world is the last thing to which it gives consideration. Who Gave PeressA Promotion And An Honorable Discharge? One of the things which the hearings in Washington did not bring out-and which some per­sons were determined should not be brought out - was who gave Communist Peress an honorable discharge from the Army? Someone is responsible for giv­ing the order which sneaked Peress out of the Army with the same type of discharge papers in his breast nocket as those delivered to Joyal American fighting men who do not join up with the enemy. Peress didn't steal these papers; they were given to him by some one high in authority after re­ceiving notification from the Mc­Carthy investigating committee that Peress had refused to say under oath whether or not he wa·s a member of the Communist Patry. Who was that person• Some one is guilty and the American tax­payers who provide the money to pay his salary are entitled to know his name. 'I'he House has passed a biB that adds about 4,000,000 more to the unemployment insurance system, which strengthens the Socialistic un­employment legislation we already h::J.ve but considerably weakens th"e taxpayers who, under its provi<;JOns:, are compelled to pay people fur not working.

According te Paul Harvey, radio commentator, Mrs. Vogeler has de­clared that her sons will not be draft­ed into the Army unless and until, they are guaranteed the protection of the American Flag and the Con­slitution of the United States. She further emphasized that rather than respond to the call of the draft board, her sons will go to jail and spend whatever time their sentence imposes, as they at least would be in ~\n American jail and not in a foul foreign prison.

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE July-Augu•t, 1954 A Half Dozen Reasons Potter's Why We Carry on Saddens Concession to Communists and Disheartens Americans Since the publication of a paper like the Southern Conservative is accompanied by many headaches and since we are not Socialistic in our views and arc. therefore barred as the redpicnt of big money with which to operate, we often wonder why we don't just quit and call it a day. Aller all, we have no material possessions <lt slake, no wealth to be conliscatcd by a Communist World Government and would stand to lose no more than other American citizens deprived of Constitutional protection, ftcedom or. speech and the right to think. The wholehearted respect and sympathy of the American people has always been with Senator Charles Potter of Michigan because of the terrible sacrifice he was called on to make for his country in World War II.

Page 5 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE July-Augu•l, 1954 Georgia Governor Comes Out On Top Scientists' Revolt May Compel Us To Abandon In Tussle With Pink Press Panel Atomic Weapons And Bring A~~~ shi!~:, n~,~~pa~~!~.~n~l- One of the unexplained mysteries ol contemporary television programs is why such panels as "Meet The Press" should be composed solely of persons with "liberal" views to put it mildly. It would seem that in deference to the law of averages, there should be two of each kind-two Conservatives and two Pinks-or that at least one Conservative would be able to catch the sponsor on the blind side and sneak in when he wasn't looking. They invite a prominent American to sit in as guest and then pounce on him like a snapping turtle lunging at a green bottle-fly. It is because of their tendency to pick their victim to pieces and try to confuse him with rigged questions that we are filled with unholy glee at the manner m which Governor Herman Talmadge of Georgia who ap­peared on that program recently, put them aU back in short pants. Segregation was the subject and Governor Talmadge discussed that i!lsue in a dignified and statesman­like manner and refused to let any of their trick questions divert him from the point he wisHed to make. It would be impossible to reproduce the questions shot at Governor Tal­madge with lightning-like rapidity and his masterly replies, but we give some of the high points of his argu­ments which inspired perhaps more commendation and approval from the Jistening audience than any similar program in television history: "I admit that the Supreme Court has ruled and, w1der the Constitution of the United States, having made that decision, it becomes the Supreme law of the land. But there are many pre­cedents in history where ty ranny has been resisted by the people, and when you, by simple judicial decree, try to wash away the customs of centur­ies, the people will not accept it­~~=.' pcoplc will not accept it in Geor- "All people in our state want to retain their civilization and their cul­ture. The white people want to retain their civilization, so do the colored people. They want to retain their re­sp. ective churches; they want to re­tam their respective schools. And for ~enturies our people have not assoc­Iated with each other socially, nor do we expect to." "In my state laws and customs and habits and thinking-the citizens will prohibit any sort of forced mixing of the races in the schools. We aren't going to have it. ''When it comes to Chr istianity as I read my Bible, the good Lord made all of us. He made some of us white, he mafic some of us black. He made some of us yellow. He made some of us red ... if He had wanted one race and one color He would have created one race and one color ... The color­ed people in the South get along better than colored people anywhere on the face of the e '1 and I am not interested in pleasing Communists at home or abroad.'' "They (the Supreme Court) are calling for us to come and visit them and help pick out the knife they're going to use to cut off our heads. We're not coming ... The people of Georgia are going to maintain sep­arate schools in our state, come what may.'' The millions of dollars stolen (rom the taxpayers in crooked Federal Housing projects would be well lost i! we learned a lesson and abandoned this Socialistic device which was set up because o! Karl l\'Iarx' injunctidn to his followers to induce the govern­ment to engage in competition with private business. But we know now that Socialistic projects are not to be abandoned in the Federal government area but strengthened. Bridges Is Saved From Deportation by A Comma The Supreme Court which not only trampled down State laws, but overrode the Tenth Amend­ment to the Constitution in ruling against Segregation in the South is more meticulous in observing statutory regulations when it comes to decisions concerning Communists. Attempts have been made for ten or fifteen years to deport Harry Bridges, an Australian born Com­~ unist who has been thumbing lus nose at legal authorities in this country who sought to send him back to Australia. Recently the Supreme Court found a misplaced comma or sofl:te­thing in the brief of those trying to oust him and hastily seized on it to find in favor of Bridges. The Communist spy. Judy Coplon was shown the same consideration by the Court after she was found guil­tv of stealing secret documents in the Deoartment of Justice where she worked and delivering them to Russian agents. In her case, the Court discover­ed a semi-colon where a question mark should have been, or some­thing equally silly, and immediate­ly set Miss Coplon free. Any American having business with the Supreme Court should keep h1 mind that it will tip the scales in their favor if they can prove they are either a Commun1st or a member of a minority group. All others are just out of luck. Adding Insult To Injury Sometime next Jail the farce called "United Nations Day" wHl be ob­served by such Americans as are still determined to recognize and honor the In ternational Conspiracy against the United States. These shindigs are called by the various governors of the States al ­though there is one chief executive ot an American coromonwealth, Gov­ernor Bracken Lee of Utah, who had the backbone to refuse to issue a proclamation in the past and we are sure he will maintain the same posi­tion this year. We did not know until we found H in the report of the hearings on Appropriations for the State Depart­ment that the cost of calling these affairs, printing the programs, pub­licity and other promotional schemes in connection with "United Nations Day" is paid by the taxpayers, re­gardless of whether they favor such observances or not. This item amounts to $3600.00 which is mere chicken feed according to Washington standards, but the principle of it is highly obnoxious to those millions of Americans who do not want to honor the United Nations and who only want to get it out of the United States.

Utah's Lee Panics Governors With A Sound Tax Proposal The Honorable J. Bracken Lee of Utah, one of the towering personal­ities among Chief Executives l)f the various States, tossed a bombshell in­to the forty-sixth annual Conference of Governors at its session ir. Bolton Landing, New York, recently. In direct and forthright action which has characterized his official be­havior since taking office, Governor Lee put his finger on the main source of Congressional and Executive cor­ruption in Washington by asking his fellow governors to pass a resoluticl'l demanding repeal of the Income Tax .~.mendment. As was to be expected, Governor Lee didn't get very far as the dele­gates immediately stampeded for the exits amid a clamor of inane bab­blings about this tax being e~c;ential to "take care of domestic and inter­national commitments." In other words he was about as successful in driving home his sound proposal to the assembled governors as he would have been if he had requested delegates to a highjackers' convention to abandon robbery and return the loot they had stolen from their victims. No tyrant in all history ever vol­untarily surrendered either power or the purse once he got his mitts on it and that is why, in our opinion, no national administration will f!ver con­sent, or members of Cong1 ess agree, to submit an amendment repealing this vicious tax. The other a ltern ative is to attempt its repeal through action by the State legislatures but from the howl which went up from various Chief Execu­tives at the Governor's Confer ence, the proposal would have ha rd sled­ding in that area, too. Perhaps Americans had as well !ace the cold fact that they have no recourse against the political scoun­drels who have cheated, robbed and squandered them out of their sub­stance and that relief, if ever, will only come when a succeeding gen­eration has bred a new crop of lead­ers with some faint trace of states­manship in their make-up and con­ception of.the principles and the lim­itations underlying the American gov­erning system. ----- Church Convention Changed From Houston to Honolulu The Protestant Episcopal Church has decided not to hold its triennial general convention In Houston in 1955 and has selected Honolulu !or the event. Its decision was based on Houston's refusal to ignore racial safeguards and permit the .housing of white and black delegates all in one hotel. The announcement of the transfer from Houston to Honolulu was made in New York by the Rev. Henry Knox Sherrill, presiding bishop, prominent left-wing clergyman and advocate of indiscriminate racial mixing. The Rt. Rev. Clinton S. Quin, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese ol Texas was described in the press as being "sad­dened" at the action of Bishop Sher­rill in refusing to allow the conven­tion to be held in Houston. Personally, we find we are unable to shed any tears over the matter. We think that Honolulu is a more suit­able site with its polyglot races. Be­sides, it is cooler in Honolulu than it is in Houston, which should be an added inducement, what with all the crowding into one building and every­thing. ist reports that scientists are stamped­ing to Oppenheimer's defense in such numbers. both here and abroad, that the White House, the Pentagon and atomic experts are greatly alarmed. ·we imagine that this is true for these agencies are easily a larmed but, unfortunately, they usually become alarmed at the wrong things and at the wrong time. There are too many serious situ­ations in this country at the present time to be alarmed ove1·, to worry too much about a bunch o( dis­gruntled scientific egg heads. Any way, the majority of them arc ideol­ogical disciples of that subversive old goat. Albert Einstein, who has joined so man~' Communist fronts that he has probabJ:--• lost count himself and who has insolently advised his scien­tific comrades to reCuse to answer all questions regarding their Com­munist aWJiations. As to the attitude o( the scientists abroad, phooey on them! If we have actually come to the point where we haven't enough Joyal AI.Jencan scientists to conduct our atomic experiments, perhaps we should, in self-defense revel't to the use of (he musket. the bayonet and the trusty old rifle to protect and maintain our national security, At any rate. we can't see where we are assured any measure of p•·o­tection if we must depend on sub­versive scientists who are loyal to Russia :Cor the construction of our weapons of war. They are liable to rig up the blasted things so they will explode at the wrong end or go ofi at the wrong ti.me and cxtcnni­nate us instead o( their Soviet bud­dies. Gooil Work-If You Can Get ll It looks like Owen Lattimore is going to beat the rap on charges brought by the Dej:artmcnt ol Justice which accused him of lying in connec­tion with testimony before a Senate investigating committee. Lattimore was described by the chairman of the committee which in­vestigated the Institute of Pacific Re­lations as a '·conscious, a•·ticulate in­strument of the Soviet conspiracy" and by the chairman of the Senate subcommittee of the judiciary as ·'the top espionage agent in this count•·y." Lattimore was aided in escaping the net by United States District Judge Luther Youngdahl who receiv­ed his appointment as a result of a horse trade with Truman in which Youngdahl promised not to nm against left-wing Hubert Humphrey as senator from Minnesota, in return for the appointment. Youngdahl dismissed sevnal of the charges and the U. S. Court of Ap­peals came across with a decision upholding his ruling. Lattimore immediately announced that the decision was "clearly a major victory" for him and we agree. lt was also a vindication o! those who engineered the China sell-out. The venomous attacks which Senator Ralph Flanders continues to make on Senator Joseph R. Mc­Carthy is beginning to make us wonder if the old goat from Ver­mont is afraid of some future dis­closure the Wisconsin senator may make. It must either be that or just a case of midsummer madness brought on by the extreme heat. What will it profit us to fight Com­munism in Korea.

Pogo 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE July-August, 1954 W~1en All the Shouting Is Over the President Confronted Efforts to With Ingratitude Chine~e Comn~unists Will Be 'in U. N. Appease Minorites Senator William F. Knowland of Califotnia made a sound and fearless gesture when he threatened to work 1or the removal of the United States from the United Nations in the event Communist China is given a seat in that body. However, he had barely finished his speeCh on the subject when he was enveloped in a big wet blanket tossed at him from the White House. The president countered with a statement on the subject in which he said that he, too, was opposed to Com­munist China being seated in the United Nations "at this time" and urged caution in making any plans to withdraw from that world organi~ zation in any event. We have no way o! knowing, of course, what the president means by the expression "at this time" or if he has some definite date in mind when it will be agreeable to him to have Communist China seated in the UN but we venture the prediction that the Chinese murderers who tor­tured and slaughtered American boys in Korea will replace our good friend and ally, Nationalist China, which will be tossed out. There will probably be a lot of stalling and diplomatic double-talk about the matter but, instead of get­ting out of the United Nations and kicking the dirty conspirators out of the country, we will whip into line as usual when the moon faces of the Chinese baboons appear at the world council table. We simply do not have the rugged brand o! statesmanship required to deal properly with the conspirators in the United Nations when they put out the welcome mat for the heathen Chinese. Pollsters Probably Question Each Other According to the Gallup Poll, a majority or Americans consider that "both sides used improper means" in trying to get preferred treatment for Private G. David Schine, and in trying to stop the Mccarthy investi­gation. In our opinion, the poll is not worth ~·le paper it is written on. In the Urst place, Private Schine was not the issue and, like Roy Cohn, was just dragged into the case to muddy the water and confuse the people who listened to the proceedings. The real issue was whether or not Communists should be investigated or whether they should be allowed to infiltrate thv government, the Army and de[ense plants without opposi­tion. If the Gallup Poll had put the ques­tion in the right manner, there would have been a different answer. We do not think that the poll is representative and is merc]y useful in that it is a means o! a living for its personnel. \Ve have never been polled and have never known any Ofle who has been polled. Neither have we ever known any one who knows any one who has been polled. Karl Marx said in 1848 that the abolition of all private property and the levying of a heavy progressive income tax were among the surest means of killing o!f Free Enterprise and setting up a Socialist State. How right he was and how meticulously we ha\'C followed his instructions!

Doctors Forced to Fight Way Out Cf A Trap "Doctors today are among the best informed groups in the country in economics and government" writes Dick West in the Dallas Morning News. Mr. West is right and it is well that physicians have informed themselves about the operation of government and especially as it is currently ad­ministered for the medical profession is in constant danger of being taken over by the Federal government in its never-ending fight for Socialized Medicine. The doctors, like all other good Americans, thought that when the Fair Deal was voted out of power, Socialized Medicine schemes would disappear with it. But they soon found that any previous gesture along this line was merely a warming-up skirm­ish in preparation for the main bout. True that it was re-christened and blossomed out under another name. True, also, that the former chief bell­wether in Washington has been re­moved from the picture. But he was succeeded by an "Oscar Ewing in petticoats" a charming, ambitious and determined little lady with a dedicat­ed and burning conviction that !ihe knows better what the doctors want than they do, themselves. The doctors won the first round recently when the House snowed un­der something called a "medical re­insurance plan" by an overwhelming vote. The public knew little concern­ing this measure but their ignorance was unanimous as those promoting it didn"t know what H was all about either. Nothing daunted, the little lady is now going to bat to get the doctors into the Social Security Act although they have protested until they are blue in the face that they don't want in it. The House voted to exclude physicians from the provisions of this Socialist measure but the little lady remains unconvinced and is exercis­ing all her resources to get them back in when the bill passes the senate possibly on the theory that ''mama knows best." When a government agency insists on being paternal, or in this case "maternal" it requires some doing to escape their clutches. We are betting on the doctors. They have been so successful in combat­ting the ailments o! the human body that they should be able to cope with the malady of Socialism which has attacked the Federal government. A woman subscriber in Phoenix ~rizona, poses a rather difficult ques~ lion for us: "Please tell me, if you can, why Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt is so bitterly opposed to the admission of Spain to the United Nations." Like many Americans, we are utterly un­able to figure out the mental processes of the lady in question. If we may be permitted a guess, however, we would say that her opposition to Spain stems from the fact that in that country no Communist is permitted to even enter, much less remain within its borders. To her this probably constitutes dis- ~~:;~~~:~~~t~~~1~ii~.1~e0~:c~~t~~~. r~~-1~t~~ ciples. One o! the main objectives of the United Nations is to convert the world into a vast Socialist State where the wealth of the United States can be confiscated for the benefit of the people of alien lands. No sane Ameri­can can possibly endorse this sub­versive organization once he under­stands its ultimate aim for world domination and the subjugation o£ the American Republic. His Treason Is Rewarded and Patriotic Duty Penalized One of the issues springing up as a result or the McCarthy-Pentagon hear­ings was the matter of a member of the armed forces who reveals in­formation concerning suspo:Ct.t:'d dis­loyalty on the part o! fellow em­ployes, to the chairman of a con­gressional committee ch3rged with the responsibility of probing in t o such matters. The controversy developed over the action of an Army offlcer repC't ted to have furnished information to Sen­ator Joseph R. McCarthy concerning espionage at Fort Monmouth and al­though his name is undisclosed, he has been praised and condemned in about equal proportion. There were almost as many opin­ions expressed as there were persons who oilered them but all of them that we have heard or read, with one notable exception, completely missed the point. Practically all the arguments con~ cerning this unknown Army officer hinged around the question as to whether his loyalty was to his em­ployer, to the Commander-in-Chief, or to the Army. Rev. James M. Gillis, C.S.P. has lifted the discussion to a high spirit­ual and moral level and has pointed out that a man in such case is bound by a superior loyalty to which he owes allegiance and which supersedes the Army, the administration or · any other man-made agency. That loyalty, according to Rev. Gil­lis, is to his own conscience and, in the last analyses, a man not only may, but must, obey the dictates of the "ttill small voice within him. "Unless I have misunderstood all that was taught me years ago concern­ing moral obligations, such an em­ploye has done exactly what he was bound in conscience to do" says Rev. Gillis. "He should be rewarded, not pun­ished, promoted. not discharged. For there is a law above all rules, regula­tions, oaths of secrecy. The ancient Romans knew it. They had a motto, Salus Populi Suprema Lex-'The wel­fare of the people is the highest law'. "It is reported that the Army is hunting him out and that officials have threatened to expel him if they find him. "The Army accepted a known trait· or, a Communist, gave him a com­mission, promoted him, and, when it appeared that the lawfully appointed !;~~e~t;~~~o~~~r~~~~Yc~oas~~1,t~ ~~ ~~~~: arable discharge. '"Yet the same Army threatens dis­h? norable discharge to an officer who d1d, or may have done, his patriotic duty. Treason is rewarded; devotion to duty and to conscience penalized."' We suppose the president of the United States is learning a new lesson. about political ingratitude from the behavior of the leaders of the NAACP, an organization of ambitious Negroes and a smattering of white trash as~ sociated with them in undertaking to put Moscow-inspired policies into effect in this country. The president, since the day of his inauguration, has bent over backwards in making concessions to them and to other minority groups. He has violated the ethics o! his office in making proposals concerning segre­gation and FEPC policies which are matters delegated to the States by the ~onstitution and in which he, as pres· 1dent, has no constitutional or moral right to interfere. He has completely repudiated his campaign promise to respect the rights of States by appointing a mem­ber of the Supreme Court with no qualifications other than his willing­ness to render a decision demanding the abolishment of segregation in Southern schools. And for all this abject surrender to n:inor~ty group pressure, he has recetved m return condemnation and abuse by those to whom he has ex· tended preferential treatment. At a meeting of the NAACP in Dallas the president was denounced for his "incredibly shabby record on civil rights action" by its spokesmen who lambasted the Republican Party generally even though this party has kowtowed and catered to Negroes and other minority groups even as two administrations preceding it have done. Southerners could have advised the president if he had cared to listen to those most concerned, and could have warned him that it was a "give an inch, take a mile" situatiOn but he preferred to learn the hard ,;..ay. Not only did NAACP condemn the pr~si~ent but they threatened by im­phcatton to take matters into their own hands in the South and force the abolishment of segregation in other fields than education. . There was a day in the not too far distant past when this country was a more orderly and decent place in which to live when the Dallas spec­tacle would not have been tolerated. Impudent, insolent and smart alec Negroes from the North barging into the South making threats against its customs and institutions would have b~en routed out of the State by a different method of transportation than that by which they ar.riv ed.

The truth is that the Pinkos in con­trol of NEA have a definite miscon­ception about the !unctions of a teacher in the American public school systems. For years the Socialists controlling NEA have drilled into the minds of local school teachers that it is their responsibility to make world citizens of American school children when, as a m .. tter of fact, a teacher who tries to do that should be fired. The teacher is employed to teach from and make a student understand the subject matter in sound Amer­ican textbooks and their responsi­bility ends right there. It is not their prerogative to try to shape a child's ideologi ~ ~t thinking and when they do, they should be kicked oUt of the job. This (unction belongs to the parents. If, by the term "self-appointed critics" the NEA group is referring to parents, they had just as \'~ell get used to such criticism for more and more the parents of this country are taking it on themselves to find out what the slap-happy internationalists then some mother with a Phi Beta Kappa award or some employer who has hired a girl who can't spell stirs up a fuss about the schools and ground is lost." All of this is very alarming to the parents who are aware of the situa­tion, but to me the WHY ior all of -this is much more frightening; which is that when our children have be­come thoroughly indoctrinated citi­zens of this totalitarian world it won't be necessary for them to think at all and better if they can't. I am sure the justification !or this new philosophy of education is our membership in the United Nations. What the awakened American people are realizing is that the people never voted on joining the UN and the bulk of our Senators admit they never read the charter before ratifying it. It was foisted on the American people as an instrument of peace, but let us look at the men behind this whole idea. Molotov, Alger Hiss, and a Rus­sian born member of our Communist­ridden State Departm.ent by the name of Leo Pavolsky. At first it apparently was prepared to deal only with international prob­lems but now we see our domestic laws and customs threatened from all sides. Our state laws are to have no force and we will all be governed by a world government and policed by an army made up of people from some foreign power. This will all happen under the Human Rights Covenant. These same educators who are com­plaining of interference in their choice of curriculum will find when this Covenant becomes a treaty there will be absolute thought control and they won't be consulted. The people are reading more and listening to those who have become alerted to the threat to this Republic. They are realizing that this United Nations is an instrument of Com­munist Russia and unless we get out before it is too Jate we'll find that any resemblance to the America we have known. believe me, will be purely accidental. Just one thing more. Before the United Nations it is now being argued as to whether, when the charter is re­vised in 1955, we shall be allowed as individuals to own private prop­erty. At present the only nations vot­ing in the affirmative are the U. S., Canada and Turkey. Among the peo­ple who are studying the consequenc­es of remaining in this great plan of All Loyal Americans Will Observe Constitution Day The little town of Louisville, Ohio, is engaged in an activity which should be duplicated in every city, village and hamlet in the United States.

Although this immortal document has been dishonored, repudiated and spat upon for more than twenty-one years, it remains the greatest instru­ment of justice, freedom and oppor­tunity ever penned by human hand. And ironically enough, it serves as a shield of protection not only to loyal citizens of the Republic but also operates in the defense of the traitors who diligently strive to destroy it. in NEA are foisting on their chil-dren under the guise o! education. _.. There is much that is wrong with our public school systems in the United States but the trouble is not with parents who insist on keeping an eye on the situation but with the educated fools in NEA who are trying to use our educational systems to create a Socialist World State.

At the All-American Confeience to Combat Communism, Senator Karl Mundt said in part: "No Congressional investigating committee in history has ever made a mistake so serious or so bad in trying to get Communists out of government to compare even re­motely with the mistakes made by executive branches of government in bringing Communists into the gov­ernment."

Even here in our owfl diggins a few bright boys with some right shrewd business acumen were flushed out by the committee. A feature writer for a chain of newspapers which, as a concession to politeness, may be termed "lib­eral" recently penn~ a series of five articles which were highly re­vealing and informative. Through them, for instance, Americans learned that the writer, himself, is the first and only au­thentic investigator of Communist infiltration in this country and that Senator Joseph R. McCarthy is merely an amateur in the field. Just to bear out his claims. be­fore the ink was dry on the last paragraph in the series, this great impartial journalist was proclaim­ed a man of distinction by being elected to membership in the "American Committee for Cultur­al Freedom." Just in case we peons are not sufficiently impressed with the great honor thus conferred on this fearless chronicler of Communist­hunting activities in the United States. it should perhaps be point­ed out that the ACCF is. by its own admission. composed of the country's "leading scholars, writ­ers and scientists' ' who advocate taking the job of investigating Communism out of vulgar hands and assuming the responsibility themselves. To emphasize their qua1ifica­tions for this particular task. they remind us that they are affiliated "with similar grou,ps of intellec­tuals in Europe. Asia and Latin America" and we are further in­formed that its members even in­clude "advisers to both Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson." And if tha~is not enough. let us consider this and drop dead: His articles denouncing McCarthy and eulogizing himself received the supreme accolade of the world's leading literary authority-they were "hailed by Time Magazine." Ye gods and little Red Her­rings! (Editorial from Chicago Tribune) Well, it was bound to come. , The United Nations has spent some years trying to devise covenants on human rights, the rights of women and the rights of children. The movement has now been car­ried to its logical outcome by a Belgian lawyer who has prepared a world charter on animal rights. He hopes the U.N. will eventually adopt it. The author contends that there should be animal hospitals and policemen to enforce the rights nf the animals; he says that animals are entitled to be properlv shelter­ed and fed and comfortably trans­ported by land, sea and air. and he asks that hunting be prohibited. A former dentist complained that he lost $45 on a million dollar housing project in Dallas although he was partly compensated for his great loss when he reaped a neat little profit of 5250.000 on a similar one in Fort Worth. Please Mr. Stassen All We Want Is One little Pink Cadillac We can see an extensive area of opportunity for U.N. in collect­ing funds to build deluxe burrows for rabbits, nests for wrens, dens for wolves and lairs for tigers.

We Disagree With A Great Newspaper Because the Dallas Morning News is widely respected throughout the country for its forthright editorial ex­pressions. we were at a loss to under­stand this excerpt from a recent dis­cussion by that paper's editorial stafi o[ NLRB's decision to leave jurisdic­tion to the Stales in some o( its cases: ''One of the finest aspects of the Eisenhower administration is its ef~ forts to restore powers to the States." Perhaps the reason we were unable to assimilate this startling piec~ of information is because of the Supreme Court's decision on Segregation in Southern schools. This is hard to believe but it's true and can be checked through press reports and by the records of the Foreign Operations Admini­stration in Washington. The FOA, of which that great financial genius. governmental ex­pert and world statesman extra­ordinary, Harold Stassen, is the directing head, has just granted Britain $13,500,000 in order that they may purchase lard from the United States, great mountains of which we have on hand as surplus. We wanted to get rid of this lard and we wanted Britain to have it so we gave her the money to buy it from us. Now, what is worrying us is why they don't extend this meth­od of purchase to other fields than government operation. Why, for instance, couldn't an automobile dealer give us a check for five or six thousand dollars so we could purchase a pink Cadillac from him? Of course we don't have any surplus of pink Cadillacs in this country yet, but if we could pop­ularize this type of purchase plan and get the auto dealers subsidized by the government, we could soon build up a situation where all available garages and floor space would be oozing pink Cadillacs. It is something to think about and we hope our experts, headed by Mr. Stassen, put their heads together and give the idea a whirl.

This article further said that the Justice Department announced the filing of the suit '·a scant forty eight hours after Secretary of State Dulles Now isn't that something, really? Why should the American govern­ment cal'e what the Communists say or what charges they make against us? After all, isn't it the proper func­tion o! the American government to be concerned in "protecting American business"? Of course it can be argued that this was an action of the judiciary and that the executive had nothing to do with it but any citizen with minimum intelligence know that the president appointed Earl Warren to the Supreme Court !or only one reason and that was because he was convinced that Warren would organize the personnel of the Court against segregation which is exactly what he did.

So why should the Justice Depart­ment file a suit against a company because of some charge in Moscow when these Justice Department offic­ials obviously feel that the charge against the company is "unfounded." I! the charges against the United Fl·uit Company have no basis in fact, no suit should have been filed against them. If there is a good reason why the suit should have been filed, why wasn't it filed long ago and why did the Department of Justice act only when prodded into i-t by Communist charges'?
