Transcript THE SOUTHERN · CONSERVATIVE -To Plead lor a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 8 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JULY-AUGUST, 1957 No. 7-8 Trojan Horses on. the Supreme Court Are Kicking Down Constitutional Safeguards If We Are Going to Eliminate Pests Lets Start in Washington A bill before Congress, introduced by the Honorable Lee Metcalf of Montana, seeks to eliminate pests in the f ields and forests of America and would appropriate millions of dollars of taxpayers' money for this ~purpose. The idea i! sound all right but first things should come first. We must all concede that mosquitoes, cockroaches, flies, ants, boll weevils, Egyptian moths and such do a lot of damage and should be eliminated. But the damage they do Is mild compared to that of the human pests who are destroying the Republic and before we go all out for the Montana statesman's suggestions, we think that the helicopters and planes loaded with DDT which his bill calls for , should fly over Wash­ington and squirt the stuff on members of Congress, Presidential ad­visers in the Whits. House and Justices of the Supreme Court. If we are going to fumigat e and get rid of pests, let's do the job up right and star t at the source of infection. If we first kill the termites who are eating away at the :ounda­tlons of government, the job of exterminating minor insects should be comparatively easy. 'Operation Spider' Is the Latest Aberration of Mental Scientists Our natural inclination is to say "now we've heard everything" but we would probably be mistaken because nuttier things bob up every day. In the latest, but probably not the last, in a series of cockeyed ·experiments by "mental engineers," we learn that spiders are being "driven crazy in the interest of science." Dr. Nicholas A. Bercel of the University of Southern California, in a chemical approach to the problem of schizophrenia, is conducting these tests according to Seymour Korman, Los Angeles correspondent of the Chicago Tribune. It seems that Bercel lines up . a slew of Indian spiders which he has first selected because they are "conformists" and spin their webs in identical patterns. He then takes serum from the blood of human mental patients and pumps it in the spiders with startling results. The spiders immediately are transformed into " non-conformists" and start spinning webs of an individual pattern rather than following the group plan of uniform behavior. This example of individualfty and ~~~~~~;;~i~~~f ~sf !~s~h:it~.ew of political scientists such as Dr. Bercel, The problem over which Dr. Bercel is now tearing his hair-if he is not already baldheaded-is how to develop a serum which will restore these spiders back to normalcy and compel them to perform as a uniform group. - If he is able to do this, he's got it made. He and his fellow scientists can then take any recalcitr!nt human being who dares to oppose World Government and International Communism and shoot him full of the serum after which the juice-happy victim will whip into line and start beating the drum for peaceful co-existence, international brotherhood, U. S. recognition of Red China and the passage of the Civil Rights bill. In the back of our mind is a nudging reminder that we recently heard something else about another of this Bercel c;-eature's outlandish .experiments but we're not going to concentrate. too hard because we might remember what it was and at this P.Oint with "operation spider" fresh in our memory, we couldn't take it. ' Like atomic bombs, and equally dangerous, decisions of the Supreme Court continue to be dropped on the Amer· icon people causing destruction of the Rights of the States and freedoms of the citizen and paralyzing com· mittees of Congress and other agencies empowered to expose and halt Communist invasion of the United States. Unless the dedicated enemies of the American Constitution now sitting on the Nation's highest Bench are forcibly removed or shorn of their usurped power to demolish the Republic, Communist conquest of this country will be achieved without the loss of a life or the firing· of a shot by the Soviet forces in the Kremlin. At the beginning of the Supreme Court's defection to I nternational Communism some years ago when it first started feeling out the tern· per of the people by tossing out a ruling favorable to subversives now and then, there was audible opposition only from a few of us "die-hardsu and "reactionaries'' who were generally believed to be on the look-out for something to squawk about any way. In popular opinion, the Court was merely Operating within that margin of error universally conceded to bodies of human make-up and it was widely believed that, after one or two excursions into the field of psychology and sociology, the Justices would once again look to the Constitution and the law as the authority for their rulings. There are a lot of sadder but wiser people now and lamentation, walling and gnashing of teeth over the Court's undeviating conces· sions to subversives is nation-wide. Only Communists, Negroes and liberal minority group members have a look of content on their faces like that of the cat who has just lapped up a saucer of cream or spent the night out on the town. From the first faint sound of small voices crying in the wilderness in protest agninst the Court's Communist-biased decisions, bitter denun­ciation of that Cody has burgeoned into a mounting crescendo which is reverberating from coast to coast. In recent weeks the Court has been the recipient of the bitterest criticism ever directed toward an agency of the American government and resolutions of censure and verbal condemnation have · emanated from all sections of the country and from vast segments of the people including bar associations and individual members of the legal profes .. sian, members of Congress, professional and civic groups, columnists and editorial writers in the nation's press and for the first time in history, there is serious talk of impeachment charges being brought against the Justices in our highest tribunal which was once universal .. ly looked upon with reverence and awe. 1 So diametrically opposed to the interests and internal security of the Republic have some of the decisions been that one of the Court's own members wh~ trailed along with the ruling on Segregation, ap­parently became conscience-stricken, threw up his hands in horror and openly rebelled when his colleagues on the Bench opened jail doors to Communist prisoners and the files of the Department of Justice to criminals of the underworld. Even the White House became alarmed when public outrage reached the boiling point and the President is reported in the press to have warned his staff not to take part in the controversy raging around the heads of the Justices whose ring-leaders are his own appointees. Some of the rulings which have stirred national indignation to its highest pitch and which a great American journalist has described as "treason's greatest victory" concerned what the Court is pleased to designate as "civil liberties", ignoring the palpable fact that in guarding the "civil liberties" of a favored group, they were destroying not only (Continued on Page 2) -Millions of A me rica n s Think It-The Southern Conservative Says It Pago 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE July-August, 1957 Washington Schools Are Proving A 'Horrible Example' to the Nation Washington is the city which the President of the United States held up sometime ago as one where schools should be an example to the nation in the matter of inte­gration. They have, all right, but it is a "horrible example" which they are se.tting for others to fol­low. On Friday, June 21, The Wash­ington Daily News carried a two­column headline which read "Preg­nancy Increasing in Schools", and said in part: "Dr. John R. Pate, chief of the District's Bureau of Disease Control today warned that the increasing number of pregnant school children threatens the city with 'an enormous moral and eco­nomic catastrophe'. "He said records of children re­porting to the Southwest Health Center show a number of teen­age girls have become pregnant to stop school". An increasing number of abortions among these "junior mothers" in the past few months present an ~rming med­Ical problem, he added. Dr. Pate said that eight preg­nancies were reported at the Southwest Clinic among elemen· tary school children - one ten· year old and seven 11-year olds. The article added that when sta­tistics were released a year ago, they revealed that 100 junior high school girls were "excused" from classes every year because they were pregnant. Most of them were colored, the report said, but it ap­pears that an increasing number of white girls are becoming in­volved. Integration is pro_ying to be an example but we are sure it is of a different type from that which the President had in mind when, in his complete ignorance of the sub­ject, he predicted such glowing success for the integrated Wash­ington schools. uRed Monday, presumably, will not come again until the Supreme Court resumes its regular sittings in the Fall," says Lynn Landrum, Dallas Morning News columnist. "But the Red Mondays of June 10 and June 17 have so encour­aged the Communists of the Unit­ed Sta.tes that they are crawling out from underground like tumble­bugs in the sun."

The South henceforth can remember June 18, 1957, as we remember May 17, 1954, each a black day for the Republic. The biJI goes to the Senate, where lobbyists of the .National ~ssocia­tion for the Advancement of Colored People established their camp last night. . . .. Special attention may now be directed toward the achvibes of one man, Senator William Knowland of California, who has assumed lead­ership for NAACP forces in the upper chamber. Mr~ Know land, in his eagerness to ram this bill down the throat of the South, is moving heaven and earth-taking advantage of every parliamentary device he can find-to force immediate consideration of the bill. He can't wait. Bidding for the support of powerful Negro blocs in the next Republican National Convention, Senator Knowland has turned his back on friends in the South. Very well. We have long memories down here. And when Mr. Knowland, having retired from the United States Senate, seeks the presidency of the United States three years hence, some of us will still be around to recall the Bill Know land of June, 1957. The Senator has chosen to lie down with Tricky Dick Nixon, with Clarence Mitchell of the NAACP, with every left-wing protagonist of race-mixing and judicial tyranny. See you in '60, Mr. Know land! Come South and tell us how much you love States' rights. Holmes Alexander one of this country's best and most widely­read columnists says that the President and the "Lunatic Left" have started going steady. It is predicted that when the fifty billion dollar Federal high­way fund starts to flow, the tax· payers will be robbed deaf, dumb and blind. Oh well. they should be used to it by this time. Trojan Horses (Continued from Pa(e 1) the inalienable rights and freedoms of the American people as a whole, but endangering the structure of national security as well. Wholesale embezzlement of authority on the part of the Court began with the Segregation ruling as all responsible and reasonable Americans now concede. Openly repudiating the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution which says that "The powers not de1egated to the United States by the Constitution nor prohibited by 1t to the States, are reserved to the States respectively", the Court invaded the field of State education and arrogated to itself authority to dictate the procedure under which the public school systems of the several States should operate. With utter contempt for the rights, views and opinions of local citizens of the various States of the Union, the Court flung out the insulting information that it based its action on the recommendations of a Swedish Marxist in Stockholm and his staff of black and white Communist fronters in the United States who had written a book on the subject. Next the Court launched an all-out attack on our national security program which domestic Communists had long opposed because it was set up to prevent Communist infiltration into the various agencies of the Federal government. Under the Court's ruling on this program, a Communist can no longer be fired from a government job as a security risk unless the position he holds is a "sensitive" one and the matter of who decides on the question of ~<sensitivity" ts anybody's guess. In a sweeping attempt to prevent Congressional investigation of Communists in future, the Court reversed the conviction of a labor leader who had been identified by witnesses as a Communist and, at the same time, Earl Warren in handing down the decision clearing him, delivered a stinging denunciation of Congressional committees. who investigate Communists. Hundreds of witnesses have impudently defied Congressional committees in the past and, as a result of the Court's decision in this instance, it is believed that all Communists in future can safely refuse to answer any question relating to their subversive activities, thanks to Warren who was apparently planted on the Court to do what he is doing now. In setting aside the conviction of an alleged Communist on the ground that the defendent had not been permitted to see the govern~ ment's material containing information against him, the Court made it imperative that, hereafter, Department of Justice files must be given to persons on trial. As a result, Communists, murderers, rapists, dope foe!~~e~~ ~~~ r~~ 0 fW:: ~~~~!r~~nc;ir;:i~~1~c~r::SY:Std~:e~_drng t~~s~:~~ their attorneys can build up the case favoring the criminal in such a way as to make it difficult, if not impossible, for the prosecution to secure a conviction. The High Court threw out a conviction of a Communist who had been given twenty years by a Pennsylvania State Court after a trial for sedition. "The States have no right to try Communists on charges of sedition," the Court's ruling said and added that the Federal govern­ment will take care of that. Which appears to be another way of saying the Supreme Court will free such seditionists. With further eye to the protection of the rights of Communists and ex-Communists the Court set aside the conviction of three resi­dents of California who had been convicted and sentenced for harbor· ing a Communist known to have advocated the overthrow of the Amer• ican government. Perhaps the most astounding display of favoritism toward the Soviets by the Court was its action in handing down a decision which knocked out the conviction of fourteen Communists who had been indicted, tried and found guilty of openly advocating the overthrow of the American government. The ruling was based on technicalities and pointed out that in prosecuting Communists it must be shown that such Communists not merely advocated the overthrow of the govern­ment but that they must uhave incited people to action". In other words, it seems clear from this decision that a Communist cannot be prosecuted in connection with attempts to overthrow the America~ government until after it has been overthrown. There are numerous other cases which the court has disposed of in similar manner which, in the aggregate, have contributed to the floodtide of fury that has engulfed the nation. Among these was the release of a Negro rapist who had been given the death penalty for a beastly attack on a white housewife in Washington, D.C. and whom the Court freed on the ground that he "had been held too long without arraignment". The prosecution was unwillin&' to submit the housewife to the horror and emotional strain of another trial and so the Negro will probably be turned loose to commit similar crimes. Narcotics peddlers have also been given their freedom by the Court on the ground that their accusers had not been properly identi­fied, a sort of Emily Post touch, so to speak, where proper introduc• tions must be made between the buyer and the seller. To cap it all, William J. Brennan, Jr., one of the Court's so-called Justices, addressed a regional meeting of the American Bar Associa .. tion in Denver on May 9 and made the dumbfounding proposal that, in the administration of justice, there should be "centralized super­vision under a single head". He added that "hodge-podge judicial systems should be replaced by an integrated judicial structure_ ad­ministered by modern methods". (Like a sausage factory turning out frankf~~ters, no doubt.) Some one ~an, he said, must be in charge of the judiciary system just as an efficiency expert directs the opera· tion of a business. So there we have it right off the bat from an official of the hig~est Court in ~~e land- a proposal for a "Legal Czar" to administ~r justlc~ to the c1bzens of the United States and who could, in th11 capacity, tell the Courts which cases to speed up, which ones to drop a~d who could eventually move into the substantive field as one Con .. shtu tionallawyer suggests, and tell the judges how to decide the case-s. Meanti~e, it will be l[o interesting for cynical students of the his­tory of the nse and fall of nations to sit around and make bets as tp the length of time this Republic can survive-in view of the Trojan Horses now st~bl~d in the Supreme Court Building in Washington and who are kickmg down our Constitutional safeguards, one by one. 157 of ult ce; >it .. me the :np me ad- >at .ry ion lJ"O ,nd .rr. :he I ill on, list 1ch ~he gh­!

Pogo l 'Hello Suckers' Would Be Fitting · Way to Salute American Taxpayers We warned last month that the "economy wave" in Congress would turn out to be a blast of hot air and that is exactly the case. After blowing off steam in the press and making headlines for the benefit of the folks back home, Sen­ate Committees are restoring most of the itema cut out 1n the House and Eisenhower's padded budget will probably finally emerge intact. It might have been better if his program for a spending spree un­equalled in all history had been ac­cepted without protest in the first place since additional millions have been spent in publishing the record of all the yak yak by supposed dis- 5entcrs who knew all the time they would fall in line in the end. In this connection, the Committee on Government Operations of the House of Representatives issued last May 15th, a report which shows that members of Congress who vote bil­lions for foreign aid have no more idea of where this money goes, or how it is spent than a baboon has of the theory of relativity. All they know is that the taxpayers J- of the United States are keeping up sixty foreign countries and that they must vote an appropriation in a lump i sum to meet this obligation. Approp­riations for agencies of the Federal government are usually made for specific purposes and it is possible for members of Congress to have some idea of what they are doing when they vote appropriations for the American government. But when it comes to foreign aid, they are flying blind and shooting wild and aU they know about what the money they are so generously giving away is being spent for is what the International Cooperation Administration tells them and that is Jess than nothing. The Chief function of this International Cooperation Committee is to bleed American suck­ers for the benefit of the sixty foreign countries and the only role Congress­men play in the picture is that of puppets performing in response to strings pulled by ICA international- ... jsts. Ask an average member of the Lower House of Congress, where all legislation appropriating money must originate, to explain where and for what purpose the $60,000,000,000.00 which has been fluffed off during the past ten years under the "Mutual Security Program", has been spent, and he would stutter: like Porky Pig and change the subject. ''His not to reason why; his just to vote this pie in the sky." Ostensibly this "foreign aid" or "mutual security" program is to stave oft Communisml Actually it is part and parcel of the Conspiracy of International Communism to bank­rupt the United States and hasten our entrance into a one·world Com­munist government, anrl most all Americans are coming to realize that except members of Congress who hold tho purse strings. The report of the Committee on Gov<>rnment Operations says that esti· mates for aid sent to each of the sixty countries are based merely on ·requests trom such countries for aid and that such requests are not chal­lenged or .screened by American gov- - erning otflcials. Concerning the mat­ter, the report says: "Prior to submitting a request for aid from the United States for any . purpose, it is ... natural to ex­pect that our aid officials would challenge and screen such requests for aid and the facts and reasoning on which they are founded. It should not be necessary for our officials to explain, but if it is, it should not be beyond the comprehension of foreign governments to understand that the expenditure of funds for: which the American people are taxed must be justified to the representatives of the American people, the Congress ... We !ind it hard to believe that American diplomatic personnel are so inept at negotiation that they could not ex­plore proposals a good deal more than is now done . .. ". The truth of the matter is that this ICA makes requests for lump sums and then works out its p'rogram after­wards and decides where the funds will go. In some cases, our brilliant diplomats have found it difficult to give the money away as there are a few countries left in the world whose leaders are possessed of integrity and they don't want our help and say so. When Harold Stassen was running the foreign aid show, he ran up against this situation in the case of a Middle East country which told him frankly they didn't want our money and all but advised him to drop dead. He ran around like a chicken with its head off for weeks until he found a country which would accept the dough. When the Committee on Govern. ment Operations asked a lame-brain Deputy Director of ICA why there was no record of why each country was allotted a certain amount and for what purpose, the dim-wit re­plied that he did not believe that "having a record would serve a suf­ficiently useful purpose to justify the work that would be involved.'' The ICA docs condescend to fur­nish some general headings describ­ing the purposes for which foreign aid is intended the most astounding of which is the one titled "to balance the recipient country's budget." Why, in Heaven's name, are we required to balance other countries' budgets when we can't balance our own? In commenting on this item, the report of the Committee on Govern· ment Operations says: "The state­ment that a given sum is required to 'balance the recipient country's budget' is an explanation of sorts, of the use intended, but it does not ex­plain why this particular amount of money is required rather than some other amount, how long this process must go on, what United States Se­curity or policy objectives are fur­thered by the activity, or what the alternatives are to proceeding as proposed.'' One statement in the report floor­ed us and we belleve it will also throw any American who reads it. It is a description of ICA's "highly classified printed presentation in 4 or 5 volumes, setting forth in more than a thousand pages of charts, graphs, schedules and narrative, the Administration expression of how the funds requested might be used." This material, according to the report, is brought into the House "under mili­tary guard" and exhibited to four Committees of Congress. Why the "military guard"? Are we at war or something and who are Bishop Appoints Negro Pastor White Congregation Walks Out Whoever said that Los Angeles had succumbed to the Black Pla­gue didn't know what they were talking about. In that great city, just as in the South and all over the country, there are hundreds of thousands of self-respecting Americans who are suffering the tortures of the damned because of the contempt­ible behavior of cheapskate poli­ticians in the three branches of the Federal government who are determined to subject them to un­speakable indignity in order to capture the colored vote. In the City of the Angels early this month the entire membership of a Protestant church - and a Methodist church at that - re­signed in a body along with its trustees in protest against the ac­tion of Bishop Gerald H. Kennedy, member of the Executive Com­mittee of the National Council of Churches, in appointing a Negro pastor over the congregation of the Normandie Avenue church of that denomination. Not only did the entire mem­bership resign, according to an Associated Press release, but they also removed all furniture and memorials from the church and sent them to their former pastor who now presides over a church at suburban El Monte. Board Chairman J. H. Seal said: "We do not be1ieve it is good policy to mix races or to force one race upon another. Don't get the idea we are anti-Negro. We are not but we had a white church and we wanted to keep it that way.'' This was not in the Deep South, remember, but out on the West Coast where it is often said that in that area, if a white man be­haves himself, he is regarded al­most as good as a Negro. There should be some way to honor this congregation of good Methodists for this fine exhibition of mass courage and open defiance A friend in Virginia advises us that the United Nations rag is flying next to the American Flag at the Jamestown Festival in Wil­liamsburg, Va. If this is true, it is incredible. Where does an inter­national outfit composed of world Socialists come in on a strictly American Anniversary? This friend suggests that shocked Am­ericans may protest the matter to Governor Thomas B. Stanley, Richmond, or Lewis A. McMurray, Jr., Chairman Virginia 350th An­niversary Commission, T r a v is House, Williamsburg. they "guarding" it from? American taxpayers, perhaps? What we need is a super-loud speaker of such huge size that it could be heard from ocean to ocean and from the Great Lakes to the Gull with some stentorian-voiced an­nouncer to utter to all American taxpayers each day the greeting that made Texas Guinan famous: "Hello suckers". of a depraved clerical mongrel-izer. Needless to say, the Bishop who appointed the Negro pastor to pre­side over a white church has about the same record of affiliation with Communist fronts we have come to expect in such cases. He is reported as having been connected with Methodist Federa­tion for Social Action, described by the Internal Security Subcom .. mittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee, 1956, in this manner: "With an eye to religious groups, the Communists have formed re­ligious fronts such as the Meth­odist Federation for Social Ac­tion", and by the California Com­mittee on Un-American Activities, 1948, as "Among the more con­spicuous fronts for Communist ac­tivity in the field of relief, assist­ance and welfare work". Bishop Kennedy is also listed as having been affiliated with the National Committee to Repeal the McCarran Act, classified by the Security Subcommittee of the Sen .. ate Judiciary Committee, 1956, as follows: "To defend the cases of Communist lawbreakers, fronts have been devised making special appeals in behalf of civil liberties and reaching out far beyond the confines of the Communist Party ~~~~~; ~r·e ·. ~~o~~ ~=~fo~~fa~~~: mi ttee to Repeal the McCarr an Act". We just can't get away from the facts. I ntegration of the races is the child of Communism and prac­tica11y all top-bracket integration­ists have a record of Communist front affiliation. Fuzzy-Brained Analyst Gets the Wrong Answer The Associated Press on July 8 carried a loud bray from Senator Paul Douglas of Illinois to the ef­fect that "the Democratic Party could win sweeping victories in Congress were it not for the 'Southern Incubus' ". By the "Southern incubus", he meant the only respectable ele­ment that is left in the party - Southern Conservatives. There is plenty that is wrong with the party under its present leadership but Douglas is so deep· ly enveloped in the miasma of So­cialism that surrounds it that he is totally incapable of making any fair, intelligent or impartial anal­ysis concerning its present low status, and the reasons therefor. The International Labor Organ­ization has voted to bar delegates from Hungary after finding out that the Kadar Government is Communist dominated. Ye gods! What a monumental discovery! Incidentally, the Communists al­ready have 34 votes in ILO and the United States 4. What differ­ence would a few more Red bal .. lots make?

Maiden Lady Tells How To Bring Up Children There is said to be no one better qualified on th e subject of bring­ing up children than a maiden lady who has none. Miss Margaret Mead, noted an .. thropologist, addressed the recent convention of the National Educa­tion Association at Philadelphia and told the educators just how the job should be done. Being an ardent internationalist, Miss Mead had to get in a plug for one-world government so she closed her address with this nifty: "We have failed to realize that we cannot live today in any com­munity smaller than the world and that to plan for the children of any one family or any one town, we must think in national and in­t ernational terms". There it is, right out of the horse's mouth! So, don't plan to h ave any chil­dren until you first become an internationalist and a firm believ­er in one-world government. If you find you can't accept this philosophy, then don't have any ch ildren and if you already have some, bundle them up and ship them them to Miss Mead who will re·locate them in a proper "climate of thinking" . The Fund for the Republic has named a couple of pink theolog· ians uto make a study of contemp­orary American life with a view to determining the conditions und· er which our free society may be maintained." We just can't wait for their report. How on·earth did we ever maintain a free society bef01·e we had the Fund for the Republic? THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE It Would Be Cheaper to Stay Home and Play Post Office The Administration insists on continuing to play games in Wash· ington. On July 15, according to the Associated ~ress, 7,500 government workers will report to thirty or more relocatiOn centers secretly set up in a half dozen Easter n· States. (What's to be done about the other 1,800,000 government workers is not disclosed). Apparently all this activity is in the interest of good, clean fun. They are going to make-believe that an atomic bomb is about to be dropped on the Nation's Capital and the bureaucrats are scurrying to safety. Fourteen helicopters will scoop up the President and his Modern Republican advisers and spirit them to a hideaway sometime during 410peration Alert". (Some wag has made the impious suggestion that this hideaway probably has an underground golf course). A year or two ago a similar operation took place there and agency heads, their secretaries and personnel were AWOL for days and days. The event created a lot of adverse criticism, the major part of which was said to have come from t he wives who were left at home and who stubbornly refused to accept the philosophy which holds that wives are expendable but secretaries are not. They didn't ask our opinion , of cou rse, before launching this latest activity but if they had, we would have advised them to calm down, take it easy and keep their sh ir ts on.

One was the publication of our lead editorial for April in its en· ~~~J~a.in the South African Observer published in Cape Town, South The ti tle of the editorial which the Observer reproduced was "If You're a Good Conservative American Patriot . . . Let 's Face It .. , You're Nuts". In reproducing the editorial, editor S. E. D. Brown re­fers to our paper as "The Southern Conservative, Fort Worth, Texas, U.S.A. - the newspaper that has the ability to express What millions of Americans are thinking". In South Africa they have a problem which parallels ours in the United States - Communists who constantly agitate for integration of the races, aided by lame--brain liberals and do-gooders who are constantly trying to do something but don't know what. They may even have a South African counterpart of Eleanor Roosevelt who sashays around in the jungles stirring the Negroes up, for all we know. The other matter that surprised and pleased us was receipt of a letter from a member of European nobility- who must be nameless - who praised our paper h ighly and indicated approval of our work in a very substantial manner . It is such th ings as these which make life interesting for the editor of a publication like ours, and which help to mitigate the dish eartening instances when we seriously doubt if we-and others like us-are doing any good, and if anybody is paying any attention to what we say. How 'liberal' Can They Be and Still Rank as 'Conservatives'? We can take most of the claptrap associated with the great game of politics in our stride and without wincing, but we rise to the boil· ing point when some ill-informed character tries to sell us on the idea that William E. Knowland and/ or Richard M. Nixon are Con· servatives. That observation is an insult to our intelligence. Perhaps, in the regular order of th ings, both of them would have preferred to pitch their public careers on a basis of conser vatism for both, at times, have risen to great heights of statesmanship which makes their ultimate de­fection to Modern Republicanism all the more tragic. It was when the mongrelization epidemic broke out like the seven year itch and the non-existent "Ne~ gro problem" became paramount to all others that both capitulated and fell like a ton of bricks. They are entitled to their opin· ion, of course, but we don't pro· pose to listen to any one call them "Conser vatives" without putting up a ter rific argument. No Con­servative worthy of the name is willing to surrender f undamental American rights, such as trial by jury, in order to garner minority votes. We can think of a lot of things to call both of them but the term "Conservative" would not be among them. July-August, 1957 Northern Republican Makes - Powerful States Rights Plea We have always held that the de·­praved rulings of the Supreme Court in flagrantly overthrowing the Con­stitution would bring resentment and protest from other Statea than the South since their vicious decisions threaten the rights and freedoms of all Americans alike. During the debate in the House of Representatives over the Civil Rights issue, the Honorable Noah Mason, Republican of Illinois, made one of the most forceful denunciations of the Court's recent rulings that was heard in that body. Step by step he told of the degen­eration of the Court beginning with Roosevelt who sought a Court which would reflect his own Sociological views rather than the law· of the land, and continuing down to and includ­ing Eisenhower who, in naming ap­pointees to that post, has the same end In view. "For over 150 years the American people lived with and under the Federal Constitution-as drafted by the Founding Fathers" Congressman Mason said: "During that time, they were a happy, contented and a pros­perous people . . . Then came our New Dealers and our Modern Re­publicans with ideas and proposals < to change our Consti tutional form of government into a welfare state, a centralized Socialist-Labor govern­ment, with our sovereign States re­legated to a subservient position, ex­ercising only those powers and duties that might be assigned them by an all-powerful, arrogant, dictatorial, centralized Federal government-di­vorced from those powers, duties and privileges guaranteed to the States by our Federal Constitution." Congressman Mason attributed the freeing of Communists by Supreme Court decisions, the segregation rul­ing, the bus seg:·egation case, the Michigan "dirty books" case, the Girard College case and other rulings in which the Court exceeded its authority to the fact that the present J ustices are •·socially, economically and politically minded instead of be­ing legally experienced and judicially • inclined." He quoted President Eisenhower as having said in a speech during his campaign for the Presidency at Des Moines in 1952: "The Federal Government did not create the States of this Re­public. The States created the Fed· eral Government. The creation should not supersede the creator. For if the States lose their mean­ing, our entire system of govern­ment loses its meaning and the next step is the r ise of the central­ized national state in which the seeds of autocracy can take root and grow." "In the words of President Eisen· bower himself, therefore, the de­struction of Constitutional States Rights will 'sow the seeds of auto­cracy' and bring about in America 'some other form of government' and force us to establish a 'dictatorship'" Congressman Mason said. He told of the disastrous exper- · ience with Federal Civil Ria:hts leJ· lslatlon fo llowing the Civil War when there was "unspeakable cor- ~ ruption on every side" all in the name of Civil Rights. '· f 't • July-August, 1957 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 5 Bedroom Phase of Integration , Is Being Pushed by the Reds A striking example Df the gen­eral depravity and lax morals of the public is given in the an­nouncement that in the East the moving picture "Island in the Sun" is proving one of the most popular films released in recent years. "Island in the Sun" makes an indirect plea for intermarriage of white and black people and in its cast are Negro half-breeds and jaded White females whose fad­ing careers in legitimate pictures caused them to jump at a chance to appear in this lewd offering. Almost any hour of the day, one can turn on the radio and hear songs from this production in which plaintive love lyrics are sung by male mulattoes to com­plaisant White women. "Island in the Sun" is mongreljzation prop­aganda, set to music. Somebody is pushing the picture very hard, indeed. The producer of the show is Robert Rossen, an admitted form­er member of the Communist Party. Among the organizations officially declared by the Attorney General of the United States, Com­mittee on Un-American Activities of Congress, and report of Un­American Activities in California as being Communist and sub­versive to which Rossen is shown as having formerly belonged are: Artists Front to Win the War, League of American W,riters, Hol­lywood Writers Mobilization, Am­erican Russian Institute, Holly­wood Democratic Committee, In­dependent Citizens Committee of the Arts Sciences and Professions and Los Angeles Emergency Com­mittee to Aid the Strikers. When Rossen was subpoenaed by the Committee on Un-Ameri­can Activities in 1951, he took the fifth amendment and refused to answer questions concerning his Communist activities. The Senate Fact-Finding Committee of the California Senate said in tht!ir 1955 Report: <;Robert Rossen who for several years played a dom­inant role in the Hollywood Writ­ers 'Mobilization and masquerad­ed as a sincere liberal and not a Communist, finally admitted that he had been, during all of his tenure as an officer of the Mobi­lization, an active Communist Party member." In 1953, Rossen voluntarily ap­peared before the Un-American Activities Committee in Washing­ton and was a cooperative witness, admitting his membership in the Communist Party from 1937 to 1947. He gave the Committee the names of others who had been Communists and indicated that he was through with such affilia­tion. However, if he had surrendered all his Communist beliefs, he would not have produced this Mongrelization propaganda pic­ture to be viewed by and no doubt to influence Americans of weak character and unstable morals. Florida PTA Cioes on Record Against Christian Prayer Down in Miami, Florida, ac­cording to the Miami Herald of May 23, officials of the local PTA, backed up by the executive coun­cil of the county PTA, ordered a Protestant minister's wife to stop using the name of Jesus in the prayers she offered at meetings of the group or face expulsion from that organization. The incident set off such a wave of indignation that two local church organizations, the Greater Miami Ministerial Association and the Greater Miami Council of Churches passed a joint resolution condemning such action. The Red complexion of the Na­tional Parent Teacher Organiza­tion is generally recognized by the list of subversive speakers con­stantly invited to address its con­ventions and by its alignment with left-wing causes. But when it comes to the point where a local group of parents and teachers of children make threats against a member for praying in the name of ~esus, it is high time for the Amencan people who are not under the domination of a powerfully organized anti~Chris­tian group out to destroy Chris­tianity in the United States, to take over and clean the filthy subversives out of local Parent­Teacher groups. From a retired General in Flor­ida: "Your June edition was out of this world. Your last column on page 8 'We are a Reactionary and are extremely proud of it' is the best thing I have ever read. God bless you and may you live to be 125 with conti1med health and that great intelligence which you possess. What a great patriot you are!" • As if we didn't have enough pro-Communist agitators in the pulpit and elsewhere in this coun­try, the Rev. Ambrose Reeves of the Angelican Church of Johan­nesburg, South Africa, bobbed up in New York recently. Speaking in t11e very Pink Cathed1·al of St. John the Divine, he said that his church in South Africa would dis­obey the law passed by the South African government in April pro­hibiting mixed attendance of the races at churches. He probably considers himself a "moral lead­er'' too, even while admitting that he is a law-breaker. Anticipating a visit from Kru­schev and Bulganin, Rude Pra­va, official Communist govern­ment publication in Prague said: ((The Soviet leaders are coming to us as collaborators, as represent­atives of millions of Soviet peo­ple. Their visit will again confi1'm that our country and our people will stand determinedly with the Soviet Union/' Members of Con­gress in Washington, please note and send Tito a few more million dollars and a few ~ore jet planes. Constitution Day Convention to Be Held Again This Year in Chicago Vicious Lobby Which Should Be Investigated One of the most corrupt lobbies in Washington and one which should be thoroughly investigated but never will be, is that of the National Edu­cation Association. According to a statement by Con­gressman Albert H. Bosch of New York in the Congressional Record of June 13, this lobby has $3.8 million, most of which Is spent in an eifort to bring about Federal intervention in the public schools of the United States. A fair sample o! the dishonesty of NEA is its published statement in October, 1956, that Congress "should carry out the mandate of the (White House) conference report and enact legislation which will pro­vide substantial Federal funds for emergency school construction pur­poses". Any American who is half way in­formed about the ''White House Con­ference on Education" in December of 1955, knows it was rigged by NEA politicians and that the various dele­gations to the Conference were not permitted to vote on Federal Aid or anything else. The overwhelming sentiment of those attending was against Federal Aid, but the smart boys and girls of NEA juggled the thing by getting their own kind named chairmen of each division and accordingly made a report in line with what they had decided on before they went to the Conference. If NEA of!Jcials had all the sense they should have, they would know that there is no such thing as "Fed­eral Aid" and that money appropriat­ed as such was first taken from the States through force. But there will be no investigation of this vicious lobby because of the supposed voting strength of the 666,000 members which the outfit claims. Francis 0. Wilcox, assistant Secretary of State, in an address to the National Education Associa­tion's convention at Philadelphia, stressed the need of A meTican schools and college to teach stu­dents about Communism. Mr. Wil­cox and the State Department can stop worrying on that score. Just as long as the NEA is on the job, American students will be taught Communism-not just uabout" Communism. A member of Congress has dug up an item of $223.49 which the State Department paid to the Gold Liquor Company in Wash­ington. Asked about it, one of the Department's bureaucrats explain­ed that it was from Secretary Dulles' uemergency fund" and that it paid for liquor to entertain fo:Yeign dignataries. Years ago, tt was brought out that the Depart­ment's "Wine, Women and Song" division is a vital part of modern diplomacy, and party gil·ls who are on call by the State Depart­ment when visiting firemen need cheering up, are said to receive among the highest pay checks in Washington. On September 14 and 15, the Third Annual Constitution Day Convention will be held at the grand ballroom of the Lasalle Hotel in Chicago. This event is sponsored by We, the People, a patriotic organiza­tion with headquarters in that city and is usually attended by large delegations of concerned Americans from every State in the Union. Among those who make the pilgrimage to the Windy City for Constitution Day ceremonies are business men who are alarmed at the progress of Socialism in this country with its toll of busi­ness failures; farmers who are being persecuted, fined and jailed for growing more grain than poli­ticians think best; physicians and surgeons who fear Socialized ~~~i~~ee ;~:i~;xrr~r;~~·: r~n~=~~ ·~ ~ ington in amounts that range from 20 to 91 per cent of their earn­ings. Many outstanding Conservative members of Congress have ad­dressed the Convention in the past and it is expected that several will be on hand at the September meeting. We had the privilege of attend­ing the event last year as an ob­server and were g~~eatly encour­aged and inspired by the evidence of so muc~ constructive activity being earned on by determined Americans from ail sections of the country . who intend to fight to the last d1tch for the preserva­tion of the Republic in spite of constant assaults against it by dedicated internationalists a.n d one-worlders in Congress, on the Supreme Court and in the White House. Mr. Harry T. Everingham of Chicago, is the Executive Vice President of We, the People and is largely responsible for the sub~ stantial growth of the organiza­tion and for the respect it com­mands throughout the country. From an attorney and a grand patriot in Dallas: "You report a suggestion by Mr. Schulze of Dal­las, that Betsy the chimpanzee painter should be allowed to go to school with white children and that there be formed a National Association for the Advancement of .Chimpanzees, which should file smt in the Supreme Court to put an end to segregation in the Balti­more zoo where Betsy lives. Has it occured to Mr. Schulze and to you that the Supreme Court would perhaps be disqualified on the ground of relation to the plaintiff within the third degree?" (On behalf of chimpanzees, we re­sent this slur on that breed of lower animals.-Editor) Defense Secretary Wilson ar­gues with the logic of a typical bureaucrat, that if Congress pass­es a resolution to end foreign trials of American servicemen, it will force the withdrawal of U. S. forces from all ove1· the world. Good! Why does Congress not pass this resolution if it will b1·ing United States fighting forces home to protect their own country? -, What are they waiting on? Page 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIV! July-August, 1957 With Some Exceptions We Are If You Thought That Your Rights Were Proud of Southern Governors Divinely Ordained Read This and Weep - Organized Hate Mongers Petition the President On Sunday, June 30, according to press reports, Glenn L. Archer, ex­ecutive director of Protestants and Other Americans for Separation of Church and State, wired President Eisenhower requesting that he veto a bill which would permit two Cath­olic members of Congress to accept an award of the Ecclesiastical Order of St. Gregory the Great from the Vatican in Rome. Archer claimed that the acceptance of this decoration by public office­holden would "recognize the Vati­can as a foreign power." We hear a lot about "hi!le mong­ers" these days but this outfit headed by Archer and which is responsible for a large share of such charges, is real!y a classic example of bigotry, intolerance and hatred among so­called religious groups. Archer is the gentleman who was practically run out of Houston in March of 1953 when he went there to organize a local chapter of his hate group. As most similar outfits do, his group met in the Houston YMCA. Here is what the Houston Chronicle of Saturday, March 7, 1953 had to say about Archer's trip to Houston and his hasty exit there­from: "The brotherhood observance now being held nationally took on add­ed significance here when Protest­ants took the lead in routing an anti-Catholic speaker at a meeting held at the local YMCA. The organ­ization h olding the meeting wu the Protestants and Other Ameri­cans United for Separation of Church and State. The speaker was its executive director from Wash­Ington, D. C., Glenn L. Archer. The organization and the speaker came In for a good working over by the audience, most of whom accused the organization of being anti-Catholic and tinged with Com­munism. The encouraging part of this fine display of brotherhood was that most of those taking the floor to oppose the speaker's view­point declared themselves Protest­ants. "May this serve as a lesson to the harbingers of bate and bigotry who seek to spread their preju­dices here. No one is advocating a stale church or state domination of any one denomination, nor is any­one advocating that any church dominate the state. The Constitu­tion guarantees that there shall be freedom of worship and prohibits an established church and relig­ious tests for office holders. "At a time when Communism is threatening to knock out the under­girdings of our religious civiliza­tion, there must be understanding and brotherhood among Christ­Ians ... among all who worship a single and benevolent God. To stir up hatreds among the various de­nominations is to aid and abet the Communists. "Those who attended the meeting at the YMCA and routed the pre­judice- spreading speaker deserve the thanks of all thinking persons of the community. Il is much to their credit that they challenged such ridiculous statements as the one that the House Un-American Activities Committee is dominated Citizens of the South who thi nk straight have every reason to be proud of the way Governor Thomas B. Stanley of Virginia and Han. J ames P. Coleman, Governor of Mis­sissippi, performed on the "Meet the Press" television program during the Governor's Conference at Williams­burg, Virginia, recently. There was no pussyfooting, quib­bling or fence-straddling on the part of either as members of the press tried to put them on the spot in re­gard to the possibility of integration in their respective States. Both of them said simply and firmly that there would be no integration of the races in the schools of their States and all efforts of press representa­tives to confuse them or lead them in­to involved and abstract arguments on the subject failed dismally. They talked and acted like Southern Gov­ernors should and faithfully repre­sented not only their deep convic­tions but the almost solid sentiment of the States of which they are Chief Executives. While Governor George B. Tim­merman, Jr., Governor of South Carolina did not appear on that particular program, he did give out interviews to the press and all his statements on the subject of segre­gation were clear, unmistakable and to the point. There was no equivoca­tion or squirming but a straightfor­ward assertion that there would be no segregation in his State. We do not know whether or not Governor Marvin Griffin of Georgia attended the Governor's Conference but if he did, and if he said any­thing at all, it was the right thing and left no doubt where he stood on the subject. We wish we could say the same thing of Texas' Governor Daniel but we can't. He was at the Conference and appeared on another national television program and made a state­ment which probably sets an all-time record for clear, brilliant and elo­quent insipidity. The Associated Press quoted him 8.!1 saying, when asked his views on Seg­regation, that he thought "it was proper, where both White and Negro leaders were willing, to have Seg­regation." Ye gods! At the last election, the people of Texas voted heavily, almost four t o one, for continued Segregation, a mandate which Daniel and the Leg­islature fa iled miserably to get en­acted into legislation at the last ses­sion. A few half-hearted measures were passed after being held up until the last minute and being given little thought, but the subject was not giv­en the full measure of consideration it deserved. by Catholics. "This positive demonstration of brotherhood in practice was more impressive than· all the protesta­tions of brotherhood uttered by speakers during the annual observ­ance." When Archer left the meeting, he explained to members of his group that he had to run for his plane. At any rate he was running. F ive top officials of this POAU outfit are listed in government files as having Communist front records. They are Dr. Edwin McNeil Poteat, Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam, Charles C. Morrison, John A. Mackay and J oseph M. Dawson. Referring to the infamo us "Civil Rights'' bill, Senator Richard B. Rus­sell of Georgia threw out this chal­lenge to those sponsoring the Com­munist- inspired measure which has enraged a large section of the na­tion: "H you propose to move into the South in this fashion, you may as well prepare your concentration camPG now, for there are not enough jails to hold the people ot the South who will today oppose the use of raw Federal power to forcibly co-mingle white and Negro children in the same schools and in places of enter­tainment.'' Earlier, he had proposed that the matter be submitted to a referendum vote. Negrophiles whose regard for the colored race is exceeded only by their contempt for while people, im­mediately broke out in a cold sweat at the idea of the American people being allowed to vote on the matter and thus put a crimp in their pet plan for lassoing Negro votes, and opposed it violently. At his press conference, the Pres­ident effectively squashed the idea by emphasizing that the American people no longer have any say-so in such matters. "There have been court decisions on the civil rightt questions and a referendum could have no effect on them," he said. So there you are, serfs. The Su­preme Court is all-powerful; its pro­nouncements are as Holy Writ and you must put up with their decisions until a World Court takes over and really makes you step lively. Knowland of California a nd .Ja­vitts of New York, chief spokesmen of the colored race in the United States Senate, chimed in that Senator Russell's proposal was unworkable. We agree with these three that it should not be necessary for the mat­ter to be submitted to the people for a vote, but for an entirely different It is already taken care of in the Tenth Amendment to the Constitu­t ion and if the officials ol every State in the Union, instead of only four or f ive in the Deep South, had an 1ota of integrity or understanding of the paramount Rights of the States, the Reds could go on and pass their Civil Rights bill and see where it ( would get them. Impeachment as A Weapon Is Jimmy Admits He Did As Outmoded as the Musket It All by Himself Honorable George W. Andrews of Alabama and Honorable Noah Mason of Illinois, t ogether with othe r members of the Lower House of Congress, are said to be working quietly among their col­leagues to get a resolution of im­peachment against all nine mem­bers of the Supreme Court, passed by that body. If this could be accomplished, it would be a long step toward the restoration of Constitutional Gov­ernment in the United States and toward t he elimination of corrup­tion In the judiciary. Unfortunately, it is useless to hope along this line because we h..ave had too much proof during r ecent years that impeachment as a weapon of punishment, has been aband oned. Person ally, we don't believe th a t impeachmen t charges w ould be preferred against h igh-brack e t poli tic ians in Wash ington if ab­solute proof were provided that they had been guilty of every crime in the calendar including !~~~t, murder, rape and high trea- It is the people-the voters of the United States-who should be impeached and disbarred from cit­izenship for allowing themselves to become so brainwashed and r eg­imented that they tolerate the skulduggery and malfeasance in office of our public servants. Corruption on the part of elect­ed or appointed representatives is possible only where the electorate is indifferent, apathetic and lack­ing in the will to resist tyranny. The tax racket is the most vic­ious rac1cet on earth. Like a cancer it is spreading out fTom Washing­ton and attacking State political bodies. Even city councils are now talking about levying an income tax, Fort Worth among them. Just as we go to press we h ave received an or iginal form letter James ·Roosevelt sent to his color~ ed friends in the 28 California dis­trict which he represents. This let­ter is funnier than a comic book. It is composed of two long single-spaced pages of type in which the dauntless and redoubt­able statesman tells how the cow ·ate the cabbage. It seeins that he put the Civil Rights bill through the House practically unaided and alone. There are more "I's" in it than th e re are in a bushel of new pota­toes and he tells how he put the A ttorney General on a spot and fought Republicans generally to get this " bi-partisan victory for humanity and dem ocracy" passed. The CalUornia s tatesman admit­ted that b efore it was all over he was sick - ubut we h ad a civil r ights bill". He concedes that one oth er Dem­ocrat h ad a part in it too in t his a dmission : " .. . As ide f rom t he months of hard work pu t in by my staff and myself, th ere are th e facts tha t Democrat Rayburn saved th e b ill at the very start . . " ur authored a 'Democratic Man­ifesto," ... " I secured the signa­tures of 83 Democratic Congress­men", the modest Jimmy said a nd added: "I confess that I am a lit­tle ti red, but satisfactions such as those of the past month have great recuperative value." Now, we wonder , how on earth all those other New Dealers and !{fb~e~~e~e~~~ici~~sct~~~ 1~1 ~\;e~~ Negro con s t ituents, since J immy R.oosevelt, aided by Sam Rayburn, d1d all the work and planned all the strategy? July-August, 1957 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Pogo 1 New Fight Launched Against Nazism but Please Don't Tell Any One About Strangely Communism not Under Attack This Except Everybody You Know For some reason or other, we were under the impression that Adolph Hitler was dead. We thought this vicious dictator died in 1945 when the American Armed Forces who had done most of the fighting, graciously withdrew our troops and Jet Stalm's gangsters have the credit and the honor of stepping in and taking Berlin. Ignoramus that we are, we alsq thought that Nazism died when Hit­ler did as we had not heard in the intervening years of a single Nazi in Washington-either on the Supreme Court, in the Congress or in the White House. Now we find that Hitler must still be living and Nazis swarming all over the place because Holly­wood moguls in ~he motion picture industry and television executives in New York have combined their forcM es in an all-out fight on the German Fuehrer and Nazism which is almost as fierce as that waged by allied soldiers in World War II. On Thursday night, June 13, under the title of "Command Performance" a moving picture made by Columbia pictures called "None Shall Escape" was released to the viewing public over television. It was such bald propaganda that we immediately wrote the head of Columbia Pictures the following let­ter ol inquiry: Dear Sir: Since you bring pictures into my home by means of television, I assume it is proper for me to ask questions concerning these produc­tions. On Thursday night, June 13th, 1957, a television station here pre­sented a picture titled: "None Shall Escape," under the program "Com· mand Performance.'' This picture not only distorted history but was propaganda, pure and simple. It showed the Germans attacking Poland and made a good cause against the beast Hitler, with which we all agree. But there wai not a line of. con· demnation 'ior the Communists who, as you know, attacked Poland from the East while Hitler was striking from the West. Why was this fact of history omitted and why do your pictures condemning Chickens of Violated States Rights Come Home to Roost De-segregation is an issue fraught with even more threat to white su­premacy than anything in Recon­struction days, in the opinion of Major Frank Pease of Coral Gables, Florida. "In the Supreme Court's fiat are all manner of elements of injustice and violence, implicit and manifest," Major Pease said. "Compulsory intermingling o! the races will lead to miscegena~ion, most terrible word in any language. This is the menace of future de·segrega­tion. In plain words, a race of 'high yallers' is now the ominous . threat to the future of the United States and from 'high yallers' back to blacks again. "The chickens of violated States Rights have come home to roost." Nazism not also include Commu­nism which is a present and actual danger? Do you plan another pic­ture portraying the murder of Poles ~nd other innocent persons by Stalin's assassins, just as you have presented Hitler's atrocious acts? Also at the last some character made a speech in which he said the United Nations would finally be the one who would judge all these criminals and asked that the United Nations not forget these murderers when administering justice. How does the writer of the script know that the United Nations will finally be the one to administer all justice? Does he have some advance information about our in­clusion in a one-world govern­ment and, if so, where did he get such information? Also what is the name of the writer of the script? Many viewers take organized propaganda over television and think nothing of it. In far too many cases, they do not even know they are being led propa­ganda. I happen to be one who recog­nizes it instantly and who resents it unless it is propaganda for Am­ericanism but that I never see presented over our mediums of. communication. I will deeply appreciate your reply to these questions as I am anxious to know if a follow-up of the production may be expected presenting the horrors ol Commu· nism which is our immediate threat rather than Nazism which has been stamped out. Although we enclosed postage in our letter for a reply and although it has been more than three weeks .since we wrote it, we have had no answer. From this, we can only con­clude that the gentleman has taken the Filth Amendment. We earnest I y request our friends and readers not to send us any more photostats of Richard Nixon with his arms around three young Negro women, while his wife stands by with a silly grin on her face at the nauseating per· formance. We have received enough of these things to paper our entire office walls if we liked vulgar pictures and our stomach is simply not strong enough to take any more. There are perhaps a lot of men who would stoop equally low to acquire colored votes but we do not believe there are many who would subject their wives to unspeakable indignity in the process. Integrationists in the United States Senate who are undertak­ing to hurl the crowning indignity at the people of the South in the form of the uciviZ Rights" mon· strosityJ had better take a long look at the thing before it is too late. The Zoss of Constitutional rights cannot be limited to one segment of the population nor re­stricted to one area of the Re­pub lie. The poison arrow of op­pression which they are aiming at others may one day return to pierce their own thick hides. At this time, we propose to let our readers 1n on a deep, dark secret. When this edition of the paper goes to press, we will be spending our time from then until September in assembling the material for a book we hope to publish this Fall. This book will be composed of selected editorials from the Southern Conservative since the first edition was issued in January, 1950, up to those appearing in the paper at the time of going to press with the book. Also, there will be included a re­production of the Jittle book titled "My Night", a take-oU on the column of you-know-who, which we publish­ed in 1953 and which many persons continue to order from us although it has been out of print lor three years. In the "My Night" section of the book, there wiiJ be additional chap­ters which did not appear in the earlier version because they were written after the volume was pub­lished. In other words, It is our purpose to make available to our friends and readers a sort of permanent record of the poison darts we have hurled in the direction of the traitors, both male and female, who have exerted their best efforts toward the destruc· tion of the American Republic. In discussing the proposed venture with a newspaper friend recently he advised us to be sure and Include only our "hottest" and hardest-hitting editorials in the book and we re-­minded him that we never intention· ally write any other kind. So we hope our subscribers wJll begin saving up their egg money because we are toing to expect every last one of them to come across and buy from one to ? of the book. A Washington Fable From "The Tidings," Los Angeles, CaJifornla. Once upon a time there was a little girl named Little Blue Riding Hood. One bright, sunny morning she went to visit her ~;randmother who wasiB. A sneaky wolf spotted Little Blue Riding Hood travelling through the forest, so he rushed to grandma's house, ate grandma, put on her pa­jamas and jumped into her bed. Little Blue Riding Hood, being a sharp littJe girl, wasn't fooled and quickly asked about the big eyes, big ears, and big nose. And then she asked about the big teeth. "The better to eat you with," roar­ed the wolf leaping toward her and suddenly falling flat on his face. He'd hipped on his own feet At this crucial point a woodsman entered, carrying a large gavel. "What's going on here?" he asked 1n polished Harvardese. "I have juris­diction in this area, you know." "That wolf tried to eat mel" cried Little Blue Riding Hood, trying to calm her terror. "That 1s an extremely serious charge/' proclaimed the woodsman. (He was the type of person who never said anything, he always proclaim­ed.) "What have you to say?" he asked the woll. "Or would you prefer not to dignify the charges?" "I have been denied the benefit of counsel," sniveled the wolf. "I pro­test this witch hunting inquisition. However, I have here a statement I would like to read into the record. Where are the television cameras?" From his briefcase the woll extract­ed a thick document. Little Blue Riding Hood protest· ed. She was overruled and gavelled down.

"You are very kind, sir," said the woodsman. "And now young Indy, what have you to say?" "What about all those little chU­dren the wolves have eaten?" Little Blue Riding Hood asked in alarm. "How about the people they keep as slaves in caves? How about Grand· rna?" "Young lady, you are out of order bringing in all this extraneous mat­ter," sternly proclaimed the woods­man. "We can admit only this one point. You say this gentleman here said he was going to eat you. Is that correct?" "Yes, your honor." "Now, did he at any point devour any of you?

" Pogo 8 'Judge Lynch' Was Opposed to Trial by Jury Too. Remember? Since the President and scores of top leaders in Washington have gone on record as being opposed to the immemorial right of trial by jury for American citizens, we wish to remind them of a few facts of life. There was a time when many people of the South didn't believe in the right of a trial by jury either in certain crimes. They just took the criminal out and strung him up on the limb of a tree. They con­sidered this a more direct, effec­tive and less expensive method of disposing of beasts in human form who committed heinous offenses. Northern Republicans and Dem­ocrats alike screamed like ban­shees against this particular type of administration of justice and tried to enact legislation in Con­gress to stamp it out. Finally, not because of the atti­tude of politicians in the North and East, but because the great majority of decent Southern White people had respect for the Consti­tution and insisted that its pro­visions must prevail, the custom of punishing criminals without benefit of trial by jury became a thing of the past. Now that our top-bracket lead­ers in the nation's capital have aligned themselves on the side of those persons in the South who fa­vored lynch law, we hope they won't be too shocked if this type of justice is revived. And if it is, it can't be blamed on the South for all Southern representatives turned heaven and earth to keep the Civil Rights legislation from passing the House of Representa­tives but they lost to the North and East which apparently does not believe in J.he right of trial by jury. There is not a particle of dif­ference in the morality involved when an American is lynched by a group of infuriated Southerners or politically-appointed commis­sions of mongrelizers in the De­partment of Justice. The South stamped out lynch· lng. The North and East may re· vive it. Smith College Socialist Plugs for 'Uniformity' One of those intellectual creeps who are always plugging for "uni­formity" and "group action" made an address at Northampton, Mas­sachusetts, recently to the alum­nae of Smith College. "The American desire to (con­form' has eased economic and ra­cial tensions and "made Ameri­cans nicer" the one-worlder, Ar­thur Mann, asistant professor of history at Smith, said. This country would be lots "nicer" if we could have a mass _ purge or something, to get rid of the Red stooges planted in our institutions of learning. According to our usuai custom we are publishing the July and August numbers of the paper in one edition. We hope to have tha next edition out around the mid­dle of September. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE July-August, 1957 Two Nosy Old Dames Who Could Old-Fashioned Patriotism Is Stressed as Get Lost and Never Be Missed Thousands Cheer For many years among rank and file Southerners, Eleanor Roose­velt has held the undisputed title as the most obnoxious female to crash the Mason and Dixon Line since the middle of the Eighteenth Century when the lantern-jawed Harriet Beecher Stowe barged into the area for a few weeks' intensive study before emerging as a world authority on the social status of plantation slaves. Mrs. Roosevelt's claim to the distinction, however, is now slipping and · her title faces serious challenge as the pernicious activities of Agnes Meyer, wife of the owner of the Washington Post, become mora pronounced and offensive. With the facade of a bulldozer and the delicacy, perception and gentle mien of a drunken stevedore wading into a waterfront brawl, the Meyer woman invaded Virginia recently to make a public address. On that occasion she ominously warned the people of that great Com~ monwealth that unless officials of the Old Dominion knuckled under to Northern integrationists, all private schools for which Virginia is famed throughout the world, probably would be destroyed root and branch. With nostrils flaring, eyes blazing and hair bristling, this ar­rogant old battle-axe displayed such open hostility and burning an .. tagonism toward private schools for young persons of culture as to leave with some of her audience the distinct impression that, some fifty years earlier, she had either been denied admission to one such institution or had been kicked out on her ear after crashing the gate. Just for good measure, she also flung out a threat against Catholic schools and warned that if <~class-conscious" Virginia officials persisted in opposing the promiscuous mixing of white and black children in public schools, the Federal Government would likely pass legislation to deprive "all non-public elementary and secondary schools of tax exemption". And the next step, she snorted. would be "Federal legis­lation to the effect that every American child must attend public schools during the elementary and secondary grades". This fiery Nemesis of private schools did not explain who author­ized her to speak for Congress in promising ''Federal legislation" against them. However, it is possible that, before leaving Washington, she had conferred with Earl Warren and that he, in turn, had gotten in touch with Gunnar Myrdal. In that event , of course, h er threat car­ried weight and authority since all "Federal l c~islation" on American schools now originates in StoCkholm and then trickles down to the Supreme Court of the United States, after which it is passed on to the American people in the form of judicial decisions. After she had disposed of private schools, she paid her respects to the "Byrd Machine," "power-drunk officials of Virginia," "worn-out Virginia ari!::tocracy", and "State officials who are living in the Eighteenth C!'ntury" and wound up her tirade by calling Virginia's governor, Honorable Thomas B. Stanley, a "typical example of 'the people be dcmned' policy/' Her long--winded harangue covered five full columns in the Rich~ mond News-Leader whose editor printed the drivel in its entirety be­cause, as he said editorially, he wanted the people of Virginia to see "the stony face of Statism and the shrill voice of the demagogue" in action. From the letters of condemnation which subsequently poured in to that paper, he was correct in warning his readers that they would be infuriated after reading the Meyer address. With Eleanor Roosevelt, heaping insults on the South is almost a full-time job and she works hard at it, never hesitating, however, to hand out advice to the ignorant and benighted people of this section along with her barbs. The Meyer dame is equally vicious and vindic­tive and her excursion into Virginia proves that she is a worthy rival of the meddler from Hyde Park. Neither of them overlooks an oppor­tunity to hurl a brick-bat at the South or to refer to Southern citizens as ignorant, backward and totally lacking in understanding of 11the needs of a changing world". Right here, we propose to reciprocate and to give these impertinent old crows a little advice in return for all the wise counsel they feel they are bestowing on the peons of the under·privileged South. We warn them both, here and now, that Southerners are getting just a little bit fed up on brazen old bags with rum-running background and push-cart ancestry who come charging into Southern States with their dirty cracks about "worn-out aristocracy." and delivering threats, warnings and insults right and left. And when the people do get enough, we would respectfully advise these two officious old gals that they had better watch out or they may find themselves using a certain mode of transportation which may be new to them but which was once successfully employed to rid a community of undesirables in the "primitive South" about which they constantly shoot off their big fat mouths. What we mean is that they might conceivably get a free ride out of Dixie on a couple of rails from which the splinters have purposely not been removed. The Community Voice of Fort Worth is strictly a local organiza­tion but if its record of accomplish· ment were only emulated in other cities throughout the Nation, the flame of national patriotism which currently burns low, would be whipped into a glowing flame. When - in this era of interna· tionalism, collaboration and con­spiracy against the United States -a group of informed men and women who have resolutely band­ed themselves together to revive the waning spirit of Americanism, -can attract a throng of between fifty and sixty thousand local ell· izens to a celebration commemor .. ating American Independence Day, we submit that they have achieved a minor miracle. This is exactly what Commun• lty Voico did in Fort Worth on July 4th. Old-fashioned principles of honesty and integrity in govem­ment-- once taken for granted but now almost non-existent - were unashamedly enunciated by the speakers, followed by an exhibi~ tion of fireworks which lighted up the heavens for almost an hour as if in open defiance of the one­worlders, liberals, Communist sympathizers and allied subver~ sives who have done so much in · recent years to suppress all forms of celebration of religious and pa­triotic holidays in the United States. Also, Jn direct contrast to cus~ tom in certain circles today where such things are frowned on as be­ing offensive to some group or other, the ceremonies were opened with a prayer by a dedicated man of God, after which the fifty by thirty foot American Flag, said to be the largest in the South, was raised as more than fifty thousand Americans cheered. It Is earnestly hoped that this . patriotic spirit fostered by the good Americans who compose Commun· ity Voice of F?rt Worth will prove ~ to be contagious and spread to other cities and towns throughout the land. A South Dakota friend informs us that we made an error in the June edition of the pape1· and that we gave Senator Karl Mundt to No1·th Dakota. We apologize profusely for the mistake and hereby return him to South Da­kota where he belongs. If we do say so ourself, we think we are entitled to act just a little bit smug now that criti­cism of the Supreme Court and its decisions in favor of Commu­nists is being heard all over the country. We were among the first to start hammering away at them and to predict that criticism would be universal. We are not going to say uwe told you so" but we did. From a good patriot in Los Angeles: "You may not be able to attend the hearing of the sub-_ committee of the Committee on Rules in the Senate, but you have given them a fine outline of your opinion. You are so right and I · do hope you will at least make a dent in their considerations."
