Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 10 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, SEPTEMBER, 1959 No.9 American Republic Is Hopelessly Ensnared In The Web Of Socialism OUR AMERICA: TO PRESERVE FREEDOM Message for Americans (From the editorial page of the New York Mirror, Sunday, Aug. 30, 1959) By DR. RUTH ALEXANDER Deep in the heart of Texas, a sufficient revenue to remain inde· woman is making a lonely last pendent- provided, of course, the ditch stand to conserve and pre4 loony 'Liberals' did not demand hot serve the kind of America which swimming pools as part of 'educa­our fathers founded and for which tion.' our sons have bled and died. "Millions of Americans think it -the Southern Conservative says it," is the message she sends at her own expense to all senators and representatives in Washington and those in every state. She has the nerve to pitch its policy to the tenth amendment - "the pawers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution nor prohibited by it to the states are reserved to the states respect4 ively or to the people." Thus Dar­den calls unceasing attention to the historic fact that once upon a time we were a nation of united states, free, sovereign, independent of fed 4 eral control, the price of federal dole. Nor does Mrs. Darden hesitate to belabor the truth that if we were not taxetl so heavily to wet nurse the world, the states would have or the government." She might well add, as a remind4 er, that a graduated progressive income tax is the orthodox Marx· ian method of socializing countries which are industrially advanced, as prescribed specifically by the Com4 munist Manifesto. As for the Supreme Court, it will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the great revolutionary tri4 bunals of all time. "Its rulings are a greater threat to our national se4 curity than are enemy missiles." The enemy knows he may get his fingers burned if he plays with nu4 clear fire. But the nine old coots in their black robes of doom are lifers, who uproot our safety, our liberty, and our heritage to posterity, like a bulldozer. If you are among the millions who think it, you might be tickled red4 white4 and-blue to read "The Southern Conservative." THIS WARNING FROM THE GRAVE MORE TIMELY TODAY THAN A CENTURY AGO "A few people may prefer a free government but if, from indulgence or carelessness, or cowardice, or want of public spirit, they are unequal to the exertions necessary for preserving it; if they will not fight for it when it Is directly attacked, if they can be deluded by the artifices used to cheat them out of it; if, for momentary discouragement, or temporary panic, or fit of enthusiasm for an individual, they can be induced to lay their liberties at the feet of even a great man, or trust him with the powers which enable him to subvert their institutions; in all these cases, they are more or less unfit for liberty; and even though. it may be for their good to have had it even for a short time, they are unlikely long to enjoy lt."-John Stuart Mill, English economist and philosopher. The primary reason why early American patriots set up a Constitutional Republic instead of a Totalitarian State in the New World, was in order that the individ­ual citizen might forever be protected in his freedom to work out his own destiny without assistance, restraint or interference by a centralized government. Those who built an empire in what was then a wilderness asked nothing of the governing system which they established except that it secure them in their God-given right to work, to earn and to own private property and that they be allowed to keep the fruit of their toil, thrift and efforts in order to provide security for themselves and their families in the autumn of life. Today, thanks to the glorified soapbox Socialists in Washington who have consistently collaborated with the World Conspir to legalized theft in which those who have are perpetually . robbed for the benefit of thC'se who have not. During three national administrations, our major legislative en­actments and executive directives have been based on the Marxian policy of "from each according to his ability and to each according to his needs" and as a result, a paternalistic Uncle Sam now stands ready to minister ttJ every want of the citizen from the time he Is swaddled .in a diaper until he is finully encased in a shroud. The tragic degeneration of this grand and glorious country from a Constitutional Republic into a Socialist Welfare State began with a sneer and a smirk on the face of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. With all the contempt and derision which he could muster, he de­nounced the American Constitution as outmoded and as a relic of horse and buggy days. With flagrant disrespect for this great Charter of Human Freedom, he arrogantly demanded that the elected representatives of the people who had sworn to uphold this priceless document must ignore or re4 pudiate it. His scornful attitude toward Constitutional Government was shared by the hordes of European Socialists whO flooded American shores dur4 ing his and succeeding administrations and whose mission was to estab­lish in this country the same form of Totalitarian Government which prevailed in the corrupt and decadent countries from which they had fled. Through the cooperation of a brain-washed and perverted majority of both houses of Congress with no understanding of. respect for. or loyalty to the American form of government, this has now been prac4 tically accomplished. Those who deny that ours is now almost a full-fledged Socialist government are refusing to face the facts of life and are kidding nobody but themselves. While we still pay lip-service to Free Enterprise and half-heartedly {Continued on Page 21 Millions of Americans Think It-The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1959 JUDICIAL DELINQUENTS ON SUPREME COURT DELIVER ANOTHER SHOCKER Sometime ago, it will be remem* bered, the Supreme Court in Wash* ington, held that Communists have a right to plot the overthrow of the American government and that nothing can be done about it as it might interfere with the Commu* nists' "freedom of ideas." Just before they left for their annual vacation they came forth with another monstrous decision which would have hit the American people like a bolt of lightning if they had not long ago been ren* dered shockproof by the behavior of the judicial delinquents on the nation's highest bench. By a whacking majority they ruled, in effect, that no State has a right to regulate or censor movie theaters and that they may present pictures which portray obscenity, lechery and immorality to the view­ing public, young and old. Other­wise, there might be suppression of the "freedom of ideas," and any way immorality all depends on the The worst, although unconsci­ous , enemies of this country are those who know something of the corruption in government and of the violence being done to the Con­stitution of the Untted States but who a1·e too timid and rabbit-like 00 speak out in the strongest lang­uage they can command in p1·otest.

Couple this viewpoint of these evil old men with the type of in­dividuals who control the Holly­wood motion picture industry and it will give you some idea of the form of entertainment which is in store for American youth in the future. The Ups and Downs Of Statesmanship (The Miami, Florida, Herald) In the Old Senate Offioe Build­ing in Washington a senator buzzes the elevator three times when he's in a hurry to answer a quorum call, meet a constituent for Juncb or avoid a lobbyist. The elevator op­erator then drops everything (well, in a way) and responds. In the New Senate Office Build­ing (cost: $25 million, tax incl.) sen­ators can buzz three times and nothing happens. These elevators, it seems, are automatic. But it seems also that they have opera­tors. Problem: the automatic, man­operated elevators, under present electronic rules, record only one buzz, as from plain people. So the senator has to wait his turn. Now, sir, along in the summer the elevators in the NSOB will be converted so that, when the sena­tor buzzes a special button to the automatic elevator, the buzz will register and the operator will push a special button of his own, whisk- Officials of the American Farm Bureau Federation have asked Congress to curtail the farm spend­ing program and let the farmers depend on the law of supply and demand. They should know that Congress can't do that. That would be invoking the rule of common sense in legislation and common sense is one commodity of which there is no surplus in Washington. Our nomination for one of the most interesting, factual and re­liable newspaper reporters in the nation- Bascom N. Timmons of Washington. ing the car to the senator's floor, whether it's loaded with people go­ing up and the senator wants to come down or vice versa. In the meantime freight elevators will be reserved for senators only, but be­cause these are small and sena­torial egos won't fit, the thing is temporary. We thought you would like to know the ups and downs of states­manship. The cost is only $7,500. We submit that this is the cheapest laugh and the longest ride the tax­payer has ever had at his own ex­pense. American Republic Is Hopelessly Ensnared-1conHnued hom P•g• 11 admit that the United States is a Capitalistic Country, the cold-blooded truth is that no major piece of legislation has been enacted in the past quarter of a century, or could be enacted now, which does not in some manner embody the economic, political and social philosophy of Marx, Lenin and Engels. ·Founders of the American governing system did not design it as a crutch for the weak, the incompetent or the irresponsible in human society, but rather as a beacon light of hope and encouragement to those of strength, ambition and pride. But the Federal government today renders services to the individual citizen which would have shocked and horrified self-respecting Americans in a more decent era of the nation's history but are now accepted as the right and prerogative of those who are unable, or unwilling, to support themselves. Stout..,hearted pioneers who had the initiative, drive and courage to seek their fortune by tunneling through mountains, opening mines and building factories with no guarantee of freedom from loss except that derived from their own fortitude and hard work, have been succeeded by the present generation of sniveling, whimpering and cringing cow­ards who are afraid to take the risk involved in constructing a pig*sty or a country comfort station without benefit of Federal advice and a government loan. Today, young men just out of college who can neither read, write nor spell, and who seek a position with a corporation which the brains of real men have dreamed, launched and set in operation, are concerned only in how many hours they will have to work, how many holidays, vacations and coffee-breaks they will get and how soon they may start drawing a pension and begin loafing for the rest of their lives. This moral deterioration of American manhood and the stifling of ambition, pride and desire for achievement on the part of America's younger generation could not have been brought about except with the help and connivance of Marxists in Washington possessed of the iron­willed determination that the Federal government should do for the in­dividual what all decent and self-respecting Americans have always in­sisted on doing for themselves. Just as forty years of Communism in Russia has brainwashed the people there into the acceptance of human slavery as a way of life, so has twenty*five years of Socialism in Washington weakened the fabric of American character, destroyed the will to achieve and crushed the vision and dreams which once inspired young Americans to reach for the stars and to compete without fear and against all odds in the battle of free men to acquire the best that life can bestow. Lil<e beachcombers waiting for the tide to come in, American youth now hopefully looks upon Washington as a gi3Jlt feather-bed which will irisulate them against the shocks, jars and jolts which honorable men accept as their lot in the fierce contest for survival in a free and competitive economy. The list of Socialist measures enacted since 1933 is so interwoven with our economic, political and social structure and so involved and intricate in its design that no clear pattern of the whole Socialistic program can be presented in any one discussion of the subject but the most flagrant concessions to Marxism which the executive and legisla­tive branches of government have made in recent years include: Income, gift and inheritance tax laws, based on the Socialist Six­teenth Amendment, which redistrjbutes the wealth; government compe­tition with pdvate induc;try c;uch as the Tennessee Valley Authority. and other Marxian pubJic projects; the Social Security system which com­pels the citizen to buy government insurance which he may or may not want; the Withholding Tax which denies a worker the right to receive and disperse his own money; Civil Rights laws which constitute class legislation and invest minorities with rights denied to the majority and infringt'! on the Rights of the States guaranteed in the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution; the Agricultural Adjustment Act which denies in­dustrious farmers the right to plant, harvest and market their crops ac­cording to their own needs and wishes but subsidizes lazy ones by pay­ing them not to plant or to plow; the Marxist Foreign Aid program in­tended to rob Americans of their substance and bankrupt the nation in preparation for a One-World Socialist government; Federal Housing, another assault against private property rights; Urban Renewal, de­signed to violate the right of eminent domain and bring about the cen­tralization of local units of government in furtherance of the plans of One* World forces; Federal aid to schools being continually sneaked into law under deceitful pretexts and Socialized Medicine gradually being brou,gbt about the same way; all this and a thousand other Socialistic devices thought up in the warped and twisted minds of brainless theo­rists and Liberal egg*heads who have dictated legislative and adminis­trative policies in Washington since 1933 and which have destroyed all but the shell of Constitutional Government in the United States. At first it was Creepin~ Socialism which slipped up on us while we slept, but in recent years i c has become Galloping Socialism and is so cpenly admitted and accepted that all candidates now propOsed for President on both major r.arty tickets are outright and unashamed So­cialists. Not one of them would dare oppose the Marxist legislation outlined above and if he did, he would not be nominated by his party convention. We still believe that the great majority of the American people heartily oppose Socialism as represented by the leaders of the so-called Republican and Democratic parties but so far they have chosen a poor way in which to express this opposition. Unless there is an organized revolution against National Socialism at the next election in the fonn of a general breakaway from Fair Deal and Modern Republican candi­dates this nation - let's face it - must quit stalling and we must openly take our place as a Socialist State in name as we already are in fact. And, unless red-blooded Americans swing into action and take steps within their own State party machinery to bring about the nomination and election of a man in 1960 who repudiates Socialism in all its evil facets, and who will swear to gradually break the strangle·hold of Marx­ism on our national policies, we will stand forever damned as a nation of cravens who have been brainwashed of a11 self-reliance, initiative and courage and must face the world as Washington-propelled puppets who are too weak to fight, too lazy to work and too cowardly to defend a matchless system of government set up on the concepts of strength, justice and freedom and handed to us on a silver platter. s_• _P'_•m_b_.,_._r9_s9 __________________r_ H_e s_o _u_r_H_E_R_N _c_ o_N_s_e_R_v_A_r_rv e ______________________ P•g•l Washington Spending Not Only Thing Contributing to Inflation There i~ no doubt that Congress and the E1senhower administration, through reckless and unwarranted expenditures of the taxpayers' money, are principally responsible for increasing inflation, but human greed enters the picture also. For instance, practically all those who. sell anything to the public, in· cludmg grocery stores, meat markets, hotels, restaurants, drug stores, department stores and specialized shops constantly in­crease the price of their serv­ice or their products while law­makers add to the vicious circle by slap..,ing additional taxes on prac­tically everything the avera~e per­son wears, uses or consumes. They go up a few pennies here and a few pennies there until it seems that prices of most commod­ities are increased almost over­night and that nothing remains sta­tionary. If those who have things to sell v.:ould start taking off a few pen­nieS of the cost of their products, instead of upping the prices, there mif.lht be some hope to curb infla­tion. But they are not going to do it. They are going to continue to get while the getting is good, but they will pay a dear price for their greed and avarice in the long run. de · of Jaw: o na~ ture 1~ going to cause a drop in prices some day thai will be heard around the world. They will be glad to sell at any price and there are many who think it will serve them right. Newspapers, public officials and leaders of the NAACP and other trouble-making groups deny stren~ uo'l.uly that the horrible teen-age riotings in New York in which 11 teenagers have been murdered and 38 seriously wounded have any racial angle. This is a lie, of course, for while there has always been more OT less integration in New Yorlc. forced integration has re­sulted in making White youths resentful and .Negroes arrogant and the riotings have followed. This is not only true in New York but alL over the count1·y. A spectacle calculated to turn the stomachs of decent Americans was the ''Conference on Human Relations'' put on by the Meth­odist Church at Southern Meth.­odist University at Dallas recently. The principal speaker was none other than the notorious Negro Thurgood Marshall who, as usual, flagrantly denounced the South for its Tacial practices. As if having him address White persons were not enough indignity and humilia­tion, tocal papers plastered their front pages with the picture of this a?'Togant mulatto trouble-maker, and quoted him p1·ofttsety. And we seem to remember when the press gave the "quMantine treatment'' to a great American patTiot from Wis­consin who tried to warn the American people what they could expect in the way of Communist infiltration of AmeTican institu­tions, including the churches. THE AMERICAN FLAG SHOULD BE FLOWN AT HALF-MAST DURING KHRUSHCHEV VISIT All citizens who have not succumbed to the deluge of brainwashing which has drenched American minds for the past quarter century are, of course, aghast and horror-stricken over the current visit of the Krem­lin butcher Khrushchev to this country. They are even more terrified over the prospect of the President of the United States paying a return visit to this monster in the near future. They know instinctively that the proper way for the President to have handled the Soviet debacle-in the interest of the few remaining free people of the world-would have heen to have recommended the withdrawal of recognition of Russia and the severance of all relations with a country whose leaders have proved in the past and will continue to demonstrate in the future that they are degenerate barbarians without honor and without conscience and who are morally unfit for negotiating with decent nations of the world. But the people also know of the President's soft-hearted and ap· peasing attitude toward the Soviets from the beginning and his willing­ness to continue to hold "summit" conferences with them even in the face of their repeated insults, their shooting down of American planes and their announced determination to eventually crush this "capitalistic" country into the dust. We believe the majority of the American people are outraged at this honor accorded the Soviet dictator but it is the penalty which must be paid when the citizens of the nation surrender their Constitutional rights, allow the processes of the American governing system to be reversed and their elected public servants to become their masters. Thus we have this tragic situation occasioned by a foreign assassin's unwelcome visit to the country which is opposed by most Americans but approved by the President and, with a few notable exceptions, a spineless and goose·stepping Congress. Not only is this visit of a Communist gangster an insult to patriotic Americans but to the hordes of refugees from Communist tyranny who have been brought here under the impression that they were gaining asylum in an anti-Communist stronghold which was sympathetic to their pitiable and unequal battle for freedom from Khrushchev's vicious claws. and in the interim, conciliation of those whOse objective is to bring this about. Furthermore, the people will probably elect the same type in 1960 unless they are jarred into a rude awakening in the meantime. So, in this dilemma, the people, many of whom are at long last alarmed and disheartened at the rate we are traveling toward concession to the Republic's deadly enemy, can only hope and pray that the visit of ~he old scoundrel ends without any unfortunate incident which could conceivably have repercussions not anticipated by those who planned and are executing this unfortunate affair. ' Meantime, we suggest that during the visit of Khrushchev the Ameri­can Flag be flown at half-mast to denote the death of national pride and the burial of our resentment of tyranny over the helpless captive people of the world. THERE ARE WORSE THINGS THAN WORK AND IDLENESS IS ONE OF THEM The beginning of juvenile delin­quency in the United States oc­curred with the passage of the Child Labor law in 1916 when re­formers in the Federal government decided that work was bad for chil­dren under sixteen years of age. Of course no right-thinking American wants to see small chil­dren laboring in factories and sweat shops but as a result of this legislation, and the sentiment it has created, American youngsters are now suffering from too much lei­sure and we are learning that there are worse things than work for chil­dren in their early teens and that idleness is one of them. It was a painful experience to see young boys and girls working at the looms in cotton mills but it is far more heart-rending to see thou­sands of them slashing at innocent victims with switch-blade knives and committing arson, rape and murder just for the thrill of it and If we were going to start a move­ment of any kind it would be one to secure "Civil Rights"' for the Arabs. No segment of the humnn race since the beginning of time has been so shabbily treated and so mercilessly hounded out of their own lands and forced to become wanderers on the face of the earth as these down-trodden people. Following the Hawaiian election in July a newspaper headline said that the addition of a Chinese and Japanese to Congress would give an international flavoT to that body. Ye gods! How much more "international" can it be than it was before adding the Japanese and the Chinese? to fill in the empty hours when they roam the streets with nothing to do. Hard work has never killed many persons, young or old, but crime takes an awful toll of the human Call It What You Will But This Is Plain Dishonesty ~he biit introduced in Congress wh1ch would have required mem­bers to disclose to the public their expenses while traveling abroad has _been placed in a pigeon hole to d1e as has another bill to com­pel t.hem to reveal the number of relatives who are on their payrolls. . ~he data demanded in these bills IS mformation to which the tax­payers are entitled since it is they ~~~s.put up the money in both However, the majority of the members of both Houses of Con­gress hav~ been guilty of so many acts of d1shonesty, fraud and de­ceit in connection with the rights of the American peonle that this latest display of perfidy on their pa.rt probably constitutes only a m1~or offense when compared with thetr overall malfeasance. The Citizens of Arkan•as Have full Share of Trouble United States Senator J. William Fulbri~t has recently let it be known, according to a Washington press release, that he not only favors having the Kremlin butcher, Khrw::"chev, visit this country, but would honor him by havinP. him address the Congress of the United States. a recent television program Fulbri_~ht camP out for th e eventuai reeogrftion of Red China by the United States and the acceo.tance of the Chinese bandits into the United Nations. He is also the sponsor of the stu­dents exchange pro~am under which young Americans ~o to Marxist nations to be infiltrated with Communist ideologies and for­ei~ n students from various coun­tries including those behind the Tron Curtain come here to dissem­inate their totalitarian ideas. Fulbright is an ori~ in al Arkansas hill-billy whose book learning has gone to his head and converted him into a One-Worlder in a big way. After all the anguish the peoole of Arkansas have gone through be~ cause of the destruction of repre­sentative American government and the centralization of power in Washin~ton, it seems unfair that they should have the additional misfortune of having a person like Fulbright as their representative in the Senate. The futility and asisininity of contrired wars was dem.onstrated with the visit of the President of the United States to Berlin recent~ l11. Only a few short years ago, Germany was our deadlt1 "enemy" and Russia our great "ally.'' Now it's the other way 'round and Ger~ many is our "ally" and Russia our "enemy." All this proves how wise were early American statesmen. If we had stayed out of the affairs of other nations and minded our own business we would have the friendship of all nations with t1te possible exception of Russia whose friendship is not worth having. ,Page 4 The Southern Conservative A MONTHLY PUBLICATION OF EDITORIAL OPINION WITH NATIONAL CIRCULATION IDA M.

Quick James Bring Us The Smelling Salts! Anyone who thinks that the Fed· eral government is not prepared to render service of the most intimate nature has another guess coming. At a recent press conference, William H. Draper, Jr., chairman of the President's Study Commit­tee on Military Aid, dumbfounded reporters when he reluctantly ad­mitted that under the "economic as­sistance program" we are now car­rying on, something more personal than money, arms and surplus food will be supplied certain over-pop­ulated countries in the future. We are going to furnish them with information on birth control. Presumably this calls for a new job, probably a cabinet post, with the title of Director of Birth Con­trol and with Washington's usual disregard for the eternal fitness of things, our guess would be that the position will go to an unmarried Jady social welfare worker. Ye gods, what next? Certain church leaders are ex­plaining that their stand for inte­gration of Negroes and White people is based on their ((Christian attitude" toward the subject. If this is true why did it take nearly two thousand years for this "Chris­tian attitude" to develop? Why did the churches wait until Soviet Rus­sia demanded integration of the ruces in the Southern part of the United States to make this "Chris­tian attitude" known and put it into effect? Right-thinking Ameri­cans want and are entitled to an answer to this question. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE MINDS Of GIVE-AWAY BUREAUCRATS ALWAYS RUN IN THE SAME SEWER Albert M. Colegrove, Scripps-Howard correspondent, did a magnifi­cent job in his factual and first-hand report on the corruption attending t~e give-away of American taxpayers' money in Viet Nam. Although he had documented material and witnesses to the trans­actions of which he wrote in a series of articles, a Senate sub-committee naturally decided to brush the dirt which he exposed. under the rug in the hope that the American people would forget the whole thing, which they probably will. There is one angle to the affair, however, that we don't propose to brush under the rug. but to give it a little further airing, and that is Mr. Colegrove's charge that our agents of waste, squandering and extrava­gance in that area built a $7.100 toilet. It seems that when our give-away merchants start scattering money in that section of the world, their minds automatically turn to toilets. Maybe this is because the whole program, and the thinking back of it, is on a sewer level. In this connection, we are reminded of Averill Harriman who, when he was dishing out the doutzh as forei~n aid director, and couldn't think of any other place to spend money, hauled off and built two hundred toilets in the wilderness near Manila. We couldn't let that pass, of course, so we got into the act editori­ally when we wrote in the November-December, 1955 edition of the Southern Conservative: "Some years ago when he was foreign aid director and had more taxpayers' money to dispense than he had places to put it, Averill Harriman erected two hundred public rest rooms on vacant lots outside the city of Manila. In the meantime, bug-eyed natives stood around making bets with each other as to what use the cozy little structures were to be put. "Their guesses ranged all the way from storage bins for sur­plus betel nuts to individual smokehouses for curing the meat of wild boars. It 'is reported that when the edifices were completed, so widespread was the confusion that Harriman was compelled to allot an additional appropriation to bring government experts on tech­nical aid from Washington to give instructions and illustrated lec­tures on the superiority of modern American methods over an­tiquated native customs. "In his Washington column, a noted press correspondent tells of a recent trip of inspection by the current foreign aid director to Manila who found that these projects which had been forced on reluctant Filipinos by well-meaning American bureaucrats, were deserted, rotting away and gradually being covered by the wild, lush growth in that far-away Pacific island. "It seems that the native population, including the untamed Igorrotes, had refused to become house-broke and that they took a dim view of the fancy little hutches as a replacement for .more familiar facilities provided them by nature in the form of spreading banyan trees along the shores of a sleepy lagoon. "And so it is that what might have eventually become two hundred individual monuments attesting to the greatness of Harri­man as a benefactor of under-privileged humanity are disappearing into the greedy jaws of the savage jungle and thus are destined to serve merely as additional mute evidence of the folly of one more American Ambassador of Good Will with a soft heart-and a head to match." We hope that the Viet Nam structure referred to by Mr. Colegrove is not allowed to deteriorate and rot in the jungle like the projects of Mr. Harriman and that the VietNamese find it a useful and formidable weapon in their fight against Communism. At that stiff price, it should produce concrete results in order to justify the investment. After all, at a nickel a throw, many trips could be made to public accommodations for seventy-one hundred bucks. Down in a remote section of Texas, four or five men got to­gether and organized a "Johnson for President Club," which is all right but the pay-off came when one Dr. John E. Westberg of Don­na, Texas, insulted the intelligence of the public by quipping: <~The club will be devoted primarily to presenting a sheaf of petitions to Johnson urging him to accept the nomination if the Democratic Na­tional Convention offers it to him." Ye gods! uurginq him to accept." If it should be offered to him, any one who didn't want to get knock­ed down would have to jump out of the way as he started running. The public is getting fed up on all this coyness and pretended modes­ty on the part of aspirants for of­fice. It is reported that a strong fight will be made at the Fair Deal con­vention in Los Angeles next sum­mer to impose a tiqht new loyalty oath on the delegates to that farce. This means that leaders will insist on each state contingent pledging to support any candidate who m~ght be nominated even if Alger Htss should be the convention's choice. Why, we wonder, don't the lug-heads who control political conventions adopt a new type of <~loyalty oath" and demand that delegates take an oath of loyalty to the United States, for a change.? It is rumored that the Reds in this country will undertake to have Gharw., the new African Negro State, voted into the American Union before 1965. And why not1 after what we've already done? September, 1959 AMERICAN DEPRAVITY PRESENJED TO THE WORLD AS 'CULTURE' The depravity, perversion and obscenity of American entertain­ment was further advertised to the world at the Venice Film Festival in Italy which ran from August 23 until September 9. A film was selected from each country to compete for prizes in that annual event and the produc­tion chosen from the United States was "Anatomy of a Murder." Th!s film is so vile and filthy that 1t could not be shown in many places in the United States except to adults and of course only the most depraved Americans ap­proved it. And still, this film, along with the paintings of Communist ar­tists, are sent out over the world as typical of American ''culture." This type of subversive propa­ganda is all part of the plan to hasten the formation of ··one World" in which there will be no morality, no religion and no free­dom and where a mongrelized people will be slaves of a universal dictatorship. If ever a nation voluntarily con­tributed to its own destruction, our beloved Republic seems to be it. Khrushchev ·s main purpose in coming to the United States was, of course, to snoop and spy but he's not going Lo lcunt very 11tuc:h in the way of top-level secrets. Our liberal egg-headed scientists who are violently opposed to loyalty oaths have already furnished So­viet agents with most of this d~ Socialistic Project Defeated By One Vote The American people escaped, by one lone vote, being snared into having to pay for a vast Socialistic program, something on the order of Roosevelt's leaf-raking project in the early New Deal days. It is known as the water proje:ts bill and provided boondoggling ac­tivities in practically every Con· gre~sional district as an aid to the re-election of members of Congress next fall. The bill originally passed both Houses but was vetoed by the Pres­ident. An attempt to pass it over his veto in the House failed by one vote. This is only a small victory over Socialism but it is a step in the right direction and those who voted against overriding the veto deserve the highest commendation. The Honorable Bruce Alger of Dallas is the only one from Texas to vote to uphold the President's veto. As usual he performed ac­cording to principle instead of ex­pediency. Later: As we go to press Con­gress has passed a similar bill which was vetoed by the President and passed over his veto by pork­barrel politicians determined that taxpayers will help finance their campaigns. September, 1959 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 5 LABOR UNIONS DEMAND OBEDIENCE OF STOOGES THEY BOUGHT AND PAID FOR IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHICH 'LAW OF THE LAND' IS BEING VIOLATED The blast of James B. CareY, labor leader, at the Congress of the United States, has shocked and sickened many persons but we don't see why it should. He merely let it be known that labor unions had put up the cam­paign money for certain lawmak­ers and that, by accepting this fi­nancing of their races for re-elec­tion, these lawmakers were obli­gated to vote as instructed by the unioneers. When they did not act accord­ing to rules and voted for a labor union bill opposed by the unions, Carey Jet them have it which is routine performance for those who hold power over other human be­ings. The incident should be a lesson to those who favor "Federal aid" to schools, because the principle is the same. The Unions proved that because they had put up the campaign money for many members of both Houses of Congress, they were de­termined to control the vote of such members. The editor of the Creek County Adviser of Sapulpa, Oklahoma, Glenn 0. Young, editorially asks the very pertinent question: "If a decision of the Supreme Court of the United States is the 'law of the land' the next question is which decision." It must be remembered that until the infamous ruling of the Court When the Federal government -on segregation in 1954, that same puts up money for educational in- Court had held that "separate but stitutions, they are going to like- equal" facilities for white and wise demand that they control such black children was perfectly legal. institutions and dictate what shall So, if we are to assume that the be taught in such schools. Supreme Court makes our laws, we Meantime, all decent Americans will hang their heads in shame that their public servants in Congress have put themselves in position to be denounced by a hireling of the labor unions who had a right to feel that he owned them. must admit that their "separate but equal" ruling was the "law of the land" previous to the 1954 decision. And while that "law of the land" was in effect, it was violated all over the North and East where many communities permitted black children to attend school with whites. But you didn't hear of any NA­ACP agitators objecting w]1en this "law of the land" was being violat­ed or protesting against the mixing of the races in the schools. But now that the legislators on the Supreme Court have enacted another "law of the land" and said that both races should attend the same schools, the NAACP is screaming to high heaven about violations of a ruling which they call the "law of the land." Consistency is not a virtue with the Red Americans in NAACP and other trouble-makers who are meekly following Moscow's de­mand for integration of the races in the schools of the South. They are very much concerned now about violations of the "law of the land" but they didn't give a hang when the previous "law of .'"> the land" was being torn to tatters. Can any sane and sensible per­son explain these two entirely dif­ferent reactions to two different Supreme Court enacted "laws of the land"? The disgrace is not that a labor racketeer publicly castigated mem­bers of the Congress, but that the duly elected representatives of the people who are paid enormous sal­aries for doing just that should sell themselves, body and soul, to any one segment of the population and thereby bind themselves to jump when their masters say "frog." The long-range solution to the problem is for American voters to send men to Washington who have no price tag around their neck and who are not for sale to the highest bidder. WE HAD A GRAND VACATION EVEN THOUGH WE WERE 'ALL SHOOK UP' HOW A MAN MAKES HIS PRAYER NOT AN ISSUE IN RACE FOR PRESIDENT During August we were the recipient of a grand vacation on a fabulous ranch in the Beartooth Mountain range in Montana as the guest of wonderful friends in Billings who own this breath-taking beauty s ot -Just a short distance from Yellowstone Park. Up there in the solitude and grandeur of the mountains, surrounded by snow-covered peaks and a rushing stream by the patio and with no television or daily newspaper propaganda to disturb us, it was almost possible to forget the troubled state of the world and the treachery of those in Washington who are selling out the Republic. However, since it is impossible for us to go anywhere without talk­ing about the State of the Union, it was a joy to find all the ranch people who came to call thoroughly informed as to what is going on and burn­ingly resentful of the desertion of Constitutional Government by our elected representatives in Washington and the conspiracy to deliver the United States into a One-World Socialistic State. We did one thing on this trip about which we wit~ probably brag­in Texas style-for the rest of our life. We went fly-f1shing and caught three beautiful mountain trout. We contend that this feat is really something for one who has never before done anything along this l!ne except what we call in the South "nigger-fishin' " which means puttmg a worm on a hook, throwing lt in the water and lazily waiting on the bank for something to happen. We shall probably never see that beautiful section of the country again, but the memory of it will linger with us always and we shall ':~t let this memory be marred by the fact that. on the last night, of our ;'ISlt we were provided with a measure of exc1tement we hadn t b.argam~d for when an earthquake in nearby West Yello~stone levell_ed a mountam and dumped fifty million tons of rock and d1rt on the nver below. It was near midnight and we were reading a magazine when the bed in which we were lying started doing a rock and roll and the house followed suit by going into the rhumba. Jt didn't last over two or three minutes but we .will just break down and admit that we were never so frightened in all our born days and while the house did not shake but a minute or two, we shook like an aspen leaf for thirty minutes after it was all over. . . All the others more or less took it in stride b~t we were JUSt plam scared out of our wits and don't care who knows 1t. Paul Butler, National Fair DPal chairman is reported to be very unhappy because he thinks that the so-called Democratic leader­ship in the House and ~enate is. too conservative. Butler lS certatnly unreasonable and hard to please because it is the opinion of many that the only way the Democratic leadership in the House and Sen­ate could become any more liberal would be to sign up as card-carry­ing pa1·ty members. Three hundred white parents picketed City Hall in New York recently according to an Associat­ed Press story. The demonstrators were protesting against the pro­posed plan to transport 1,000 Ne­groes and Puerto Ricans from a tough section of the city into the Glendale school in the borough of Queens next fall. unon't tread on us," read the placar~s whi~h they carried. We repeat thts was tn New York, not the South. One of our subscribers in Chi­cago wrote us recently: "I am op­posed to Jack Kennedy for .Presi­dent because he is a Cathohc and I assume that Is your reason, also, for opposing him." The Chicago subscriber assumes wrong. What church Senator Ken­nedy belongs to is none of our business and is strictly his own per­sonal affair. We are opposed to Senator Ken­nedy for President because he is an Internationalist, One-Worlder, a believer in racial mongrelization, a Socialist and a stooge for Walter Reuther. Outside of that, we have nothing against him. We have had Kennedy's type as Chief Executive for a quarter cen­tury now with the result that the American Republic is financially, economically, socially and cultur­ally at its lowest ebb in history and we need another of that stripe like we need a seven·year plague of lo­custs. There have been many surmises as to why the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court publicly used gut­ter language sometime ago in his attack on author Earl Mazo con­cerning the latter's book on Vice President Richard Nixon, during a Washington cocktail party. The general summation of the incident seems to be partly that Warren hates Nixon and partly because the Chief Justice had had one too many. Attending cocktail parties was strictly avoided by Supreme Court justices in the days when the Court was composed of judic­ial figures rather than political hacks. Unfortunately, that is an­other precedent the current jus­tices have shattered. This is not to say that they perform any more ethically when they're cold stone sober, so perhaps it makes little difference. We have always hoped to see a Catholic elected President if for no other reason than to prove that we actually do have religious free­dom in this country in fact as well as in theory but a Catholic Social­ist is no improvement over a Prot­estant Socialist and we would not­vote for Kennedy for public weigh­er. We would have considered it a privilege and an honor to have voted for Senator Joseph R. Mc­Carthy for President and there are scores of others of that faith who would cast honor and glory on that office, but Kennedy is certainly not one of them. What American voters should concern themselves with in chaos~ ~ ing a President is not how he makes his prayer but whether he is a man of political integrity, an American patriot who is for his own country before all others, an unqualified be­liever in the American form of gov~ ernment and of the Christian faith. If those who influence the action at political conventions would search out a man who has those attributes and nominate him, and the voters elect him, Constitutional Government in the United States would be restored. In Dallas six thousand represen­tatives of the Methodist Church issued a ((Manifesto" on racial re­lations demanding not only in­tegration in the schools but in housing, churches and all other spheres of life. The report was well named and closely parallels the de- ... mands in a similar document-the acommunist Manifesto." There is only one thing more appropriate, in our opinion, than for Earl Warren, Chief Justice of t.. the Supreme Court, to visit Mos­cow and that is for him to take up his permanent residence there. P•g• 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1959 Rockefeller Launches His Campaign For President In Norwegian Fishing Village Nelson Rockefeller, who has been a determined, but unavowed, candidate for President of the United States ever since he el· bowed anothe-r International So· cialist out of the governorship of New York, has now definitely pro­jected himself into the race. The locale he chose for launch­Jog his campaign was a remote fish­ing village in Socialist Norway and the occasion was the marriage of one of his sons to a former kitchen maid in the Rockefeller ancestral mansion in New York. Rockefeller is nothing if not "de­mocratic," especially when running for office, and this alliance between his son and one of the "masses" is water on his wheel. It is "de­mocracy in action" about which he so often babbles and prates. All right-thinking persons will, of course, wish the young Rocke­fellers a long and happy married life and will hope that his marriage to a servant girl does not pan out 1ike that of his uncle Winthrop who also turned his back on his own social group and married a lowly coal miner's daughter only to find out later that he had to fork over a cool five million dollars when the novelty wore off and he wanted to marry one of his own kind. Steven Rockefeller is no doubt a nice young man but this does not alter the fact that his father is one of the most dangerous men in the United States from a political standpoint because he has billions of inherited free enterprise dollars which are a powerful asset in put­ting his Socialist views into effect not only in the American Republic but throughout the world. We think we have a one-worlder and dedicated internationalist in the White House now and have had for twenty-five years but by compari­son with Rockefeller those three Presidents we r e Conservatives committed to the preservation of Constitutional Government in the United States. May God save us from any such national calamity. ------- Cleansing Congress of Corruption Only Way To Break Labor Union Stranglehold When we consider how tragic­ally similar the situation in the United States is to that in Russia, perhaps it is not so strange that our high officials can visit that country and find much in common with the Bolsheviks. In Russia, there is great privilege, freedom and license for those who run the show, and abject slavery for the masses of people. In this country "civil rights" are staunch­ly defended for minority groups but denied to millions of White, non-union citizens. We are thinking particularly of a point brought out by David Law· renee recently in which he showed how "civil rights," which are held sacred for some Americans, mean absolutely nothing in the case of others. During the current steel strike the United Steelworkers Union voted not to "allow" non-union personnel to enter and leave the struck plant of the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company in In­diana. Those employees of the com­pany who were not unionized, and who held supervisory positions with the company, had themselves locked up voluntarily in the plant because once they left, they would not be "permitted' to re-enter. The union would not "permit" them to do so. Thus the "civil rights" of men From a subscriber in a small California mining town: ((It is a pity that we do not have in the White House or in the State De­partment anyone with one-tenth of your ability, American patriotism and common sense and the guts to act as a true citizen of the United States of America should always act.·• and women who merely wanted to continue to work to earn a living were wantonly violated by big-shot labor bosses, some of whom are on record as vigorously defending the "civil rights" of small minority groups in the South, notably the right of nine Negroes to invade an all-White school in Little Rock. Also, these same bosses approved the calling out of Federal troops to stab any one in the back with a bayonet who objected to these nine Negroes going into an all-White school and preventing White stu· dents from peacefuHy pursuing their studies. These labor bosses did not favor the calling out of Federal troops to plunge their bayonets into the backs of those who prevented the men and women at the Youngs­town Sheet and Tube Company in Indiana from going into the plant and peacefully doing the job for which they were being paid. So, after all, it is not "civil rights" for American citizens which count with these labor commissars, it is the "civil rights" of I abo r unions, Negroes and other small minority groups in which they are interested. In their book the over~ whelming majority of White, non­union Americans have no "civil rights" and until the corruption in all three branches of the Federal government is wiped out, they are not going to have a_n_y __ _ Sponsored by Red forces outside the organiZation, a resohttion was introduced in the national conven­tion of the American Legion recent­ly at Minneapolis demanding that the 40 and 8 division of the Legion admit Negroes to mem­bership. The resolution which was defeated was opposed by many NortheTn delegates as well as those from the South. IS REPUBLICAN PARTY PREPARING TO COMMIT POLITICAL SUICIDE? It is announced that a committee of the Republican Party consisting of forty-three members will issue a report which will be ready for distribution about the first of Oc­tober in which policies of that party and the principles on which it will pitch its claim for future consideration will be outlined. No one, however, should get ex· cited about the matter and hope for any relief from Socialism in that quarter. Charles H. Percy of Kenilworth, Illinois, President of Bell and How­ell Comoany, and a Fair Dealer under a Republican label, is Chair· man of the Committee and from advance notices, the document which the committee will produce will vary very little from one which Paul Butler, for instance, might sponsor. ciples and would put up somebody like Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona, even though his State is politically unimportant, they would sweep the country. But if they al1ow Modern Repub~ licans to call the shots and try to out-Fair-Deal the Fair Dealers in their bid for power, they are go­ing to be buried deeper than the Madison River was by the recent earthquake. If the American peoole are go· ing to have to acceot Fair Dealers as leaders, we believe they will take the original article and not a cheao imitation in the form of Mod­em Republicans. They have had their fill of that type and the only result has been higher taxes, worse inflation and a heavier national debt. Our earnest prayer is that the If Republican leaders had com~ election will be thrown into the mon horse sense enough to realize House of Representatives and that that the American people are ready some candidate will thereby emerge and waiting to pounce on a sound who is not tarnished through con­leader and support him along with nection with either one of the two _so_m_e _fu n_da_m_en tai _A_m_eric_an~pr_in_-_m_aio r_S_oc_ia_lis~tpa_rtie_s. ___ ~ FIRE HOSE TAKES PLACE OF BAYONETS IN NEW LITTLE ROCK SCHOOL 'INCIDENTS' Not many things are more dis­gusting and nauseating to us than to have half-baked. brain-washed newspaper reporters write that in­tegration of the races in schools was accomplished "without inci· dent." What they mean is that there was no "incident" so long as no Negro was hurt. White people may be bashed in the head, drenched with water and shoved around all over the place but that is no "inci­dent." They did this in the case of the disgraceful situation in Little Rock where opposition to racial mixing in the schools is stronger than ever but where a Red school board and a spiheless Police Chief took it on themselves to see that the two high schools were integrated re~ gardless of the wishes of the citi~ zens who pay the taxes. Later, when events there were shown on television. it made a liar out of reporters who had said that there were no "incidents." The pub­licity~ seeking Chief of Police h~d ordered his men to drench Whtte people with huge fire hoses which were used to take 1lthe place of the The Honorable Sam Rayburn, speaker of the House of Repre­sentatives, is quoted in the press as having tartly retorted when asked by a reporte-r if he intended to listen to a forthcominq speech by Congressman Bruce Alger: "I have never listened to him." Cer­tainly he has never listened to Bruce Alger and if he did, it would be pearls cast before swine. They do not speak the same language a-nd it would require an interpre­ter to make the Bonham political horse-trader understand what the Dallas statesman was talking about. bayonets which were rammed in the backs of all those who protested against racial mixing two years ago. Another term that infuriates all decent persons is the reference by reporters and commentators to half grown Negro men and women as "children." Chet Huntley, for in~ stance, on his Sunday television program tenderly referred to "these two Nee·gro children" as two hulk~ ing Negroes, male and female, marched across the screen. Like all their race, these two "children" were old enough and developed enough to have children of their own and many of them do. There is probably going to be bloodshed in Little Rock before the ultimate in total integration, as or­dered by the Kremlin, is put into effect. We trust that this does not hao~ pen, but if it does, we sincerely hope that not one drop of such spilled blood is that of decent, law­abiding Americans, white or col­ored, who are unalterably opposed to the indignities and insults which are being heaped on that Sovereign State on instructions from Soviet agents. The women in Little Rock who threw a tear gas bomb in the room where a school board meet­ing was in p1·ogress committed a criminal act and did the cause of segregation no good whatever. The Constitution of the United States is on the side of those who believe in the right of the States to conduct their own school sys­tems. We merely need public of­ficials with courage and backbone to defy the Supreme Court. We don·t need acts of violence.

"Chronically unemployed" is a new name for an old problem. Even in the small village near which we were born, we had · " How-r--,_-,, t:.;.,;;~;;e;,;;;;; ;~~ w:s h!~ now boast, so we didn't refer to to them by that fancy title. We just called them tramps. One of them sWI lingers in our memory to this day because of the aloof dignity he was able to main­tain without a penny to back it up and of the dim view he took of anythi~1g that might even remotely be classified as physical labor. This mysterious character drifted into town one day and forgot to leave. Nobody knew where he came from and he didn't know where he was going. In the absence of any definite destination, or planned itinerary, he just calmly settled down for the rest of his life as a sort of non-paying guest of the community. He said his name was Reed, but further than that he would venture no information whatever, so the village wits promptly dubbed him "Coony" out of deference to his strong facial resemblance to a rac­coon. This nickname clung to him until that summer day many years later when he quietly stretched on the grass under a railroad trestle and passed away, the secret of his identity inviolate in death as it had been in life. Although able-bodied and rea­sonably strong from the day he hit town on, Coony was never Jmown to make any contribution to his own upkeep aside from occasional- Any one who claims to fight Communism, while ignoring or ap­proving integration of the races, had just as we H save his time and effort.

This kindly gesture toward the n_eedy was automatic and empha~ s1zed the universal spirit of Chris­tian charity which prevailed in this country until the Federal govern­ment stepped in and assumed the re~ponsibility of providing every­thmg to the citizen from the cradle to the grave. Coony, old boy, wherever you are, we salute you! With the cruel arrogance and intolerance of child­hood, we used to contemptuously regard you as a hobo and a stumble­bum but from the vantage point of years, we have a new conception of you and your kind. We know now that you were rnere.ly born too soon .and t:lUlt. your line of tflinking was far in advance of the times in which you Jived. If you could have stuck around a few more decades, you would have found your way of life vindicated and your species exalted far above and beyond the scant consideration given stupid taxpayers who cling to the dumb conception of every man earning his own :Keep. You would have seen class legis­l~ tion enacted in your behalf, a fterce struggle among powerful po­litical factions for your approval and support and the initiation of national policies securing you in your inalienable right to loaf and live off the toil of others. Even though in your time the economic theory of "taking from each according to his means and giving to each according to his needs" was still just a gleam in a Socialist's eye, you had the fore­sight to adopt it as your own per­sonal code and to gallantly estab­lish a precedent which would one day become an accepted policy throughout the land. So Hail and Farewell, Coony! Al­though you were a sort of silent prophet without honor in your day, you were a pioneer in the field of human rights and your fearless ex­ample in C()mpelling your fellow townsmen to share their wealth provided a pattern on which our great statesmen base all social and economic legislation today.

India Is Getting Paid Mississippi Fortunate In For Its 'Neutrality' El;~!i~~op~! ~fe~!~:i~~~o:ave India is now paying the penalty for its "neutrality" toward Com­munism by having its borders over­run with Communist troops. As a matter of fact, Prime Min·­ister Nehru and Defense Minister ~rishna Menon have always been, m our opinion, more Communist in their attitude than they were "neutral." Both have consistently plugged for the recognition by the United States of Communist China and of the acceptance of the Chinese Com­munists into the United Nations and no one would take that atti­tude except sympathizers with the Communist cause. A "neutral" toward Communism is about as worthless a specimen of humanity as a "moderate" to­ward integration; they don't carry any weight on either side and are of no value in settling the prob­lems which plague humanity today. Personally, we have more respect for those who openly disa_gree with our views than we have for those who take a "middle-of~the-road" attitude. "Moderate~· is just another name for a poHtical coward, and so is "neutra1." Our congratulations to Kent and Phoebe Courtney of New Orleans who are rendering such a great service to the American peopte by assemblinq conservative editorials from leading newspapers of the nation and xeproducing them in their excellent publication, "The Independent AmeTican.'' It is a brave and patriotic 9estur~ intend­ed to offset the overwhelming amount of slanted writing in the American press which caters to the liberal thinking of enemies of the American Republic.

Houston Scene of One of Worst Crimes of Century One of the most revolting crimes of the century occurred recently at Houston when five or six big strong Negro teenagers sexually attacked a 12 year old White boy and left his dead body in a vacant building. The Houston papers and some Texas papers carried announce~ ment of the atrocious crime but it was notable that it got no mention in those areas of the North and East who are anxiously concerned when a Negro is attacked, and who play it up in headlines all over the place. We imagine that nothing will be done much with the black beasts in Houston and that they will be classified as "children" who should be dealt with as such. Anyone, black or white, who is guilty of committing such beastly acts should be put in the electric chair regardless of their age, and until they are treated as hardened criminals instead of "children" we need not expect any let·up in juve· nile delinquency. expressed themselves in no uncer­tain terms by electing a fearless ~nd uncompromising segregation­ISt as governor for the next four years in the person of tbe Honor-able Ross Barnett. 1 Both candidates were more or less in favor of segregation and the only difference was in the measure of. their courage. During the cam­paign Mr. Barnett did not quibble or equivocate. He thundered from the stump that he was a segrega­tionist first, last and all the time and that under no circumstances could he be considered a "moder­ate." "I am a vigorous segregation­ist and not a moderate," he told voters throughout the State. "I am not a follower of Brooks Hays or any other moderate." His reference was to the forme~ Arkansas congressman, a so-called "moderate" who was defeated by _ Dale Alford, ardent segregationist, and was in answer to a defense of Hays by the present wishy-washy governor of Mississippi, James P. Coleman, who claims to be a segre­gationist, but does not always act like one. Coleman has announced that Senator John Kennedy of Mas­sachusetts, for instance, is his pref­erence as the Democratic nominee for President. Kennedy, of course, is a pronounced integrationist, as well as a Socialist and a few other things. When a candidate for public of­fice definitely announces that he is a segre&ationist and proud of it. the voters know where he stands and that he can be trusted. When he says that he is an inte­grationist, they still know what he believes in and that he is faithfully following the Communist Party line in the matter of racial mixing. But when he says he is a "mod· erate," it means that he is nothing at all- that he has no convictions on the subject and if he did he would be afraid to express them. In other words, he is a political hermaphrodite and s h o u I d be shunned by red-blooded American voters. Perverted Teacher Shocks Pupils in Los Angeles School Perhaps one of the most pro­nounced cases of degeneracy and attempt to pervert the minds of school children on record is that of a teacher in Los Angeles named Cecil M. Cook who indulged in an orgy of sex talk with his pupils in class under the guise of "psychol­ogy." The offense occurred sometime ago and it is assumed that the Cook character has been dis­charged. Teenagers reported that they were shocked and embarrassed at the perfonnance of the man who asked questions of them in class which belonged in the category of an examination by a physician of ..,.~ his married patients. It is difficult to understand how such perverts are able to secure positions in public schools of the nation but their kind, in varying degrees, are known to be associat~ ed with educational institutions at all levels. _P•_:g_• _a ___________r H_e_s_o_u_r_H_e_R_N_c oN_s _e_R_V_A_T_vI _e_ _________So ptombor, 1959 tAll States Have Doubled Tax • Levies in Past Nine Years ~ Corruption in government, like smallpox, is highly contagious and breaks out all over. The various State governments have patterned their social and eco­nomic programs after the model of the Federal government and as are­~ ult, many of them are broke and the others will be in a few years. The Bureau of the Census h_as reported that taxes in all of the States have doubled in the last nine years. This was necessary in order for them to carry on the Socialistic projects which their respective leg­islatures have approved and for which they have appropriated money without knowing, or caring, where it came from. t The largest increases in taxes were reported for New York and California where Socialism has had a head start for many years, and - where Marxist theories of govern~ ment are in full flower. Soviet leaders have said for years that the American Republic would spend itself out of existence and It seems that the States are now joining with the Federal gov­ernment in seeing that this dire pre­diction comes true. Snuff-Dippers Lobby Gains Victory in Texas Tax Law Like Michigan has already done, and as all other States are doing under current Socialistic welfare programs, the State of Texas re­cently found its treasury in the red. In four straight legislative ses­sions, lawmakers frantically began seeking in all directions for new things to tax and finally wound up by levying a duty on practically everything except dipping-snuff. Apparently, it never occurred to them to abolish some of the despic­able "social services" which have been fastened on the State's econo­my like barnacles on a ship and for the purpose of keeping hordes of deadbeats on the public payroll. There was no consideration whatever given to cutting down on expenses and eliminating Socialis~ tic functions which have no place in a representative form of govern~ ment, Federal, State or municipal. The whole burden of the legisla­tive discussions hinged on finding new places to put the bite, as the tax-grabbers lurched out in all di­rections. When the bill was finally passed and signed by the governor, it was found that about the only ones who didn't feel the pinch were the snuff­dippers in Deep East Texas. According to a Washington columnist, sentiment is growing there for longer sessions of Con­gress. Instead of remaining on the job only eight months a yem·, they would come back after a short ad­journment in August and remain in session three or four months longer. We presume that they .- want more time in which to figure out how to give away more tax­payers' money. WE MISSED CHANCE AT IMMORTALITY BY STANDING FOR THE WRONG THINGS We are advised that during October the Firestone Company will put on a television spectacular to commemorate the seventy-fifth birthday of-Eleanor Roosevelt. It will be produced by David Susskind. It is announced that there will be no commercials to interfere with the hour-long tribute to a woman who has run up more mileage with her feet and with her tongue in behalf of certain causes than perhaps any woman in history. Naturally, any remarks we might offer concerning the moral aspects of the forthcoming celebration would be dictated by pure envy. We, too, have birthdays which creep up on us every year in spite of our at~ tempts to ignore them, but Rubber Magnate Firestone and Producer Susskind don't pay the slightest attention to these events. Of course, we have never done anything, according to Liberal stand­ards, to qualify as a great American woman entitled to be honored for outstanding service to the Republic. Stupid dolt that we are, we have fooled around and exerted all our poor efforts, time and energy to pleading the cause of Constitutional Government and to denouncing the traitors in Washington who are selling us out to the enemy. We have never had the time nor the inclinatio!l to join up with even one Communist Front, much less fifty-six. We have never bitterly criticized an investigating committee of the Congress of the United States for trying to insure national defense and protect internal security. We have never severely condemned an aggressive American patriot for his brave and single-handed efforts to weed dangerous Communists out of high positions in the government, in the army and in defense plants. We have never gotten around to announcing to the world through the printed word that we would offer no objections if we suddenly found ourself the mother-in-law of a Negro nor have we worked, in season and out, for the civil rights of colored people at the sacrifice of those of the white race. We have never made cozy social visits to Communist dictators be­hind the Iron Curtain, eaten their food, slept in their beds and become so enamoured of their way of life that we came horne and recommended the adoption of Communist practices in this country under the innocuous title of "democracy." We have never befriended subversives who have engaged in treas­onable acts against the United States and then f\cd the country when their theft of secret and vital material was exposed. We have never let our name appear as a sponsor nor contributed money to subversive groups whose objective was the overthrow of the government of the United States. In other words, we are just one of those squares who was endowed at birth with an undying devotion to the American Constitution, an un­shakable belief in American institutions and traditions and an unquench­able loyalty to the American Flag and the Republic for which it stands. So it looks like we will have to struggle along in the same old rut and, in the end, we will just have to die unhonored and unsung. For us, there will be no Firestones and no Susskinds to keep our name green in the hearts of Americans or to commend us for futilely warning the people against dangerous Reds, both male and female, who are doing everything within their power to bring this once great Constitutional Republic crashing down around our ears. MARINES MAY HAVE TO DEAL WITH BLACK DELINQUENTS IN WASHINGTON Many will recall that when the infamous integration decision was handed down by the S u p r e m e Court, the President predicted that the city of Wash in g ton, D.C. "would be an example to the whole country." !tis. It is an example of the horrors of mixing young black delinquents with white children and of the im­morality, vice and wickedneS$ gen­eraiiy which ensue when the laws of nature are deliberately violated. According to late reports from the Black Capital on the Potomac, 80 per cent of the murders, 90 per cent of the rapes and 86 per cent of the robberies committed in Washington are chargeable to members of the colored race. To stem the rising tide of crime there on the part of black juvenile delinquents, a member of Congress has introduced a bill which would permit the marines to take over the situation ihere with full authority to act in the emergency. Those familiar with the situation in the nation's capital say that the "incidents" which occur daily in the schools and which keep police officers constantly on the job are unbelievable and especially when the press cooperates to keep the public in the dark concerning the disgraceful conditions which have grown steadily worse since the schools in that city have become largely black institutions. Yes, the Washington public schools are an example to the na­tion as the President predicted but, to use an expression of Nikita Khrushchev, shrimps will whistle before the President will acknowl­edge the ghastly mistake made by the Supreme Court and try to per­suade them in the public interest to reverse their ignominious ruling on racial mixing. Harry Bridges Winner In Hawaiian Election As some of us predicted from the beginning of the agitation for making Hawaii a State of the Amer­ican Union, the Communist cause has been advanced by action taken by Congress in annexing that far­off island. The July election in Hawaii was a great victory for Harry Bridges as both the senators and the con­gressman who were the winners in that contest are his boys. The influence of the Australian CoitJmunist may be expected to be enhanced in our national capital from this day on and, as a result, Marxism will make even greater progress than in the past. There is no point in saying "we told you so." Every American with an ounce of brains realized that we were unwise in adding the conglom­erate and mongrelized population of Hawaii to our other tragic prob­lems, without any reminder from us or anyone else. Everyone realized it, that is, ex· cept the politicians in Congress who voted for it and they didn't care. Those concerned Americans who carefully note the rapid decline of Constitutional Government in this country and the swing toward Marxism would do well to watch the vote of Bridges' three proteges from Hawaii on vital issues. HCharity, formerly a virtue. is now virtuaLly ft g01~ern1n<>nt 'lll.o­nopoly. Public assistance, formerly known as charity, is now the big­gest non-defense expenditure of government. Public charity cost the taxpayer $4.3 last year to (help' nearly 7 million people - seven million aged, disabled, unemploy­ed, union members on strike, wi­dows. illegitimates, alcoholics, prostitutes. concubines. gamblers, bums and beatniks" - E:r::cerpt from the "Straight Talk" of Tom Anderson, editor Farm and Ranch, Nashville. Tennessee. According to America's Future, Communists are spending $3 bil~ lion a year on propaganda which is reaching every city and hamlet in the United States. Outside of a comparatively few private patrio· tic organizations and publications, we are spending nothing to com~ bat this propaganda. Our official government policy is that the proper way to fight Communism is to give money to alien countries, including those in the CommUnist orbit. Many fearful Americans are fast coming to the conclusion that the only way this country can be saved is by an act of God. A raid on the Highlander Folk School at Monteagle, Tennessee, by officials of that State, netted quantities of rum, whiskey and gin, and the arrest of three white men and a Negro woman, accord­ing to press reports. This school which has long been charged as a Communist celt where promiscui~ ty between Whites and Negroes was the rule, is the institution praised so highly by Eleanor Roosevelt as a worthy attempt to improve racial relations.
