Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -ro Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 10 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, MAY, 1959 No.5 Spiritual Bankruptcy Will Follow Default Of Christian Ministers United Nations Finally Solves Problem of 'Putting Down Aggression and Insuring Peace' Information just made public in the United Nations' Yearbook for 1958 reveals that in the fiscal years of 1954-1957 $7,637,000,000 was given in "bilateral aid" to underdeveloped countries of the world. Ot this amount, tender-hearted and soft-headed old Uncle Sam contributed $4.116,300.000. or more than half, while the balance was divided between fourteen other countries. The poor slobs in the United States who are taxed to the bone to pay this $4.116,300,000 think this money should be kept here at home on the very proper grounds that there is no nation on earth which is as .. underdeveloped" as our own country when it comes to the brains of Washington politicians. ~-'"l:mm"m:lmi''Hrifull"rrito~s ac c~~~~e~gm~~t ot our cltizeos which will probably result in bringing about that state of "world peace" to which the U.N. is dedicated, we will no doubt reverse our opinion and decide that it is quite all right for us to carry the big end of the financial load. The action referred to was taken by the Social Commission of the United Nations which issued a momentous report recommending that local officers in the various cities of the nation stop sending prostitutes to jail and that vice squads quit interfering with the business of these underprivileged ladies of the evening. "The practice of sending prostitutes to jail has the serious dis~ advantage of not only stressing the social ostracism of these women as a separate group, but also emphasizes their professional character," the report pointed out, and added: "Prostitutes should be sent to prison only when they commit crimes other than prostitution or when they offend public order and decency .. !' The Social Commission says, in effect, that the members of the world's oldest, It not the most respectable, profession should be allowed to run at large until the social agencies of U.N. get around to it and they will cure the situation through "education." So, obviously, It now becomes the duty of all citizens to see that their local vice squads walt until these gals have "offended public order and decency" before running them in and that they do not harass them for merely engaging in a little harmless prostitution. Meantime, those taxpayers who are seething because their money goes to the support of the United Nations should remember with pride and gratitude that they are being permitted to participate in what may turn out to be the world's most novel social experiment and one which may greatly reduce the over-crowded condition of their local jails. Let them remember, too, that If there is any more effective way to achieve the United Nations' objective of "putting down aggression and br1nging about world peace" than springing prostitutes from the hoosegow, it has not yet been discovered. After all, when the fifteenth of April rolls around each year and our pockets have been turned inside out, what could be more comfort­Ing, consoling and compensating than the noble and exalting realization that through our sacrifice we have been instrumental in keeping some innocent prostitute out of stir. Remember that the money which Washington politicians are toss­ing around over the world like drunken sailors is your money which was taken from you by force of law. Remind your Congressman of this constantly and demand that not a thin dime be appropriated except for the legitimate expenses of the American government. International Communism has made deadly encroach· ment on the political, economic and social Institutions of the American Republic which has Imperiled our na· tional sovereignty, degraded our public morals and weakened our internal security. But the most fiendish conquest yet undertaken by the enemy wos recorded when the Communist apparatus launthed its campaign to infiltrate the minds of this nation's religious leaders. This diabolic projecc> struck a direct blow at the heart of Cltristianity in the United States because Ministers of the Gospel In this country exert greater influence on the minds and aotlons of their respective communicants than is exercised by any other organized force designed for shaping and directing human thought. In the hearts and affections of Americans of the Christian faith, the p-of-lrclturdl~rn a .,_,.,_d._._. niche and Is held as a sort of cherished link between them and Divinity. To them no man stands so tall as he who bears a1oft the Cross of the Blessed Saviour and so dedicated are the American people to this conception of their spiritual mentors that they are shocked, bewild· ered and grieved beyond expression at the appalling number of Men of the Cloth who have enlisted in the Marxist crusade the objective of which Is to set up a Totalitarian State and destroy Christianity throughout the world. By the very nature of their calling, Ministers of the Gospel are privileged to labor at the highest level of human activity. From the beginning of Christian civilization until recent years, their noble functions have been performed exclusively in the spiritual realm which represents the loftiest and most exalted sphere of human service which mortal beings are permitted to render. From time immemorial their ministrations have provided a type of human relations which no other mortal agency could supply. They have greeted a new-born child at the threshold of life, administered baptismal rites and launched it on its earthly career; they have bestowed their blessing at the marriage service when young men and women, for~ saking all others, take the solemn vows of the wedded state; and when the Angel of Death beckons a loved one to the Great Beyond, they have stood by the casket to comfort and console the bereaved in their sorrow, grief and despair. They have counselled, guided and inspired all those who come with­in the scope of their influence to lead clean, upright and useful lives and to follow the Golden Rule in their relations with their fellow men. They have delivered the Invocation at public affairs where Christian people gather, dedicated new Houses of Worship and have made a rich contribution generally to the social and civic life of the towns and cities in which they have lived and served. No profession is more ennobling and no career more inspiring than that of consecrated Ministers of the Gospel whose very presence is a blessing and a benediction not only to their own communicants but to the stranger within the gates. And yet a whole new conception of the Minister's mission in life and his responsibility to his congregation has been advanced by the {Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It-The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE May, 1959 TWELVE UNITED STATES SENATORS ARE PUT ON AMERICANISM'S BLACK LIST Americans for Democratic Ac~ tion, an organization which de~ nounces Communism but stands for practically everything that the American Communist Party advo­cates, has named twelve United States Senators as having a perfect ADA record in voting. No doubt these twelve senators would have liked it better if ADA had kept its record concerning them secret, for to the average thinking American, approval by the ADA is about the equivalent of ap­probation by the Kremlin. Those senators whom ADA has put on Americanism's blacklist are: Stuart Symington of Missouri, John A. Carroll of Colorado, Paul H. Douglas of Illinois, John F. Kenne .. dy of Massachusetts, Pat McNa­mara of Michigan. Hubert Hum­phrey of Minnesota, Thomas C. Hennings of Missouri, Mike Mans­field of Montana, Wayne Morse of Oregon, John 0 . Pastore of Rhode Island, Henry M. Jackson of Wash· ington, and William Proxmire of Wisconsin. So there are the twelve members of the United States Senate who, according to Americans for Demo­cratic Action, are the political chat­tels of that organization and who dare not cast a vote which is in conflict with policies of ADA. At least three on the list are either avowed or tentative candi­dates for the Presidency of the United Sta tes. May God save America if any one of them with that black record against them should receive the nomination and be elected! The Texas Legislature ha.! pass­ed a law making it compulsory that aU garbage be cooked before it is fed to hogs. Hogs are sure get­ting snooty these days. We can remember back on the farm when a hog would eat anything that didn't bite him first, and any farmer who cooked the garbage or boiled the slop would have been hauled off to the loony bin. From a Dallas business execu­tive: "I would like to see you in the United States Senate or at least in Congress." Thank you rir, but we could not be elected dog catcher. The record of our family 1.! in book form dating back many generations and there is not a Socialist in the bunch. From this you will understand that we have no qualifications for public office. Any lawmaker who votes to im-­poverish his own country for the benefit of a foreign nation is a traitor by any standard of meas­urement which may be applied in appraising human conduct. One of the first acts of Chrl.!tian Herter after being confirmed as Secretary of State, according to press reports from Washington, was to hold a two-hour conference with Dag Hammersjkold, secre­tary- general of the United Nations. Not a very p7"otnising beginning ij you. ask u.s. Moscow Must Be Prodding For Intensified Action The Board of Superintendents of the Board of Education of New York wants to bring about .. the as­similation of the Negro and other non-Whites in the nation's social structure," according to a press re· lease from that city on April 15. In order that it may be clear just what it is that the Board wants, Webster's Dictionary defines as­similation as "to appropriate a_nd incorporate into the substance of the appropriating body; to absorb as food is assimilated by the body." In order to hasten the processes of "assimilation" this group has sent a request to 100 textbook pub­lishers that these publishers in­clude the pictures of Negroes in the textbooks which they put out hereafter. The Board does not want, they insisted, the textbook publishers to use "extremes such as Negroes picking cotton or Negro leaders like Booker T. Washington or Ralph Bunche." They want "typical American Negroes portrayed with the racial identification left off," in accordance with true "integra· tion." They should be able to get some good illustrations for these text­books right there in New York and be able to show a typical integrated Negro student (switch-blade knife and all) as he chases White stu­dents around the halls until sub­dued by armed policemen constant· lyon guard. We can't think of any more "typ­ical" illustration of racial integra­tion in schools than this one for inclusion in the proposed text4 books. From a subscriber in Milwau­kee: "Until I started reading the Southern Conservative five years ago, I could see that something terrible was happening to our country but had no idea who was responsible. The paper has 'edu­cated' me thoroughly and I can see the picture of betrayal so clearly now." From a Washington newspaper man: uOld-timers here are scared and shocked and angry. Young­sters are bewildered. Your courage and your voice are a rarity. How much we need that guidance-so we J)Tay and say again: God bless you and keep you fighting." The only rights any government can ever give to its citizens are the rights it gives back to them after taking them away, says J. Lester Kahn of Chicago. It is incredible to us that South-­ern newspapers persist in running the column of Harry Golden whose personality is not only repulsive but whose remarks about the South are insulting. The South does not need advice f'rom one of hi.! philosophy and background. WE WELCOME ALL DICTATORS EXCEPT THOSE WHO ARE AGAINST COMMUNISM Looking like the advance guard of the House of David, Fidel Castro and his be-whiskered brother revo­lutionists from Cuba descended on \Vashington in mid-April to receive the tumultuous welcome always awaiting any odd character who may drift into town from another country. According to press reports, the Cuban butcher paved the way to a warm welcome in Washington by bringing with him gallons and ga14 Ions of the best Cuban rum that country produces and which he dis­tributed with a lavish hand around the nation's capital. For reasons which are not clear, the Cuban dictator was invited to make several appearances while in the United States and deliver ad .. dresses. The invitations came from press associations, chambers of commerce and other a s s o r t e d groups who were obviously fresh out of material for speakers. It should be noted that no invita­tion has been extended to General Franco of Spain to visit the United States. While he is a dictator, he is relentlessly anti-Communist and will not tolerate the red devils In his country. Could this have anything to do with the fact that Franco is never even considered as a potential vis· itor to this country? SPIRITUAL BAHKRIJPTCY !Continued from Page II planners of a New World Order who have decreed that his functions are economic rather than spiritual and that his ministrations m\lst be diverted from religious to political action. . In the. new field of politics to which he has been assigned, and in yvhtch he IS totally without experience or understanding, he is being mduced to subscnbe to and sponsor immoral and subversive policies which are directly opposed to the principles on which the Christian religion is based and which are a menace to the safety and security of the American Republic. These policies include the abolishment of the American Free Enter .. prise System and the institution of a controlled Socialist economy; the erasure of all national boundaries and the abandonment of personal loy4 alty to country and flag supplemented by a universal governing system in which freedom of the individual is unknown and a citizen is merely a cog in the vast machinery of State; the rejection of the principle of ~~~aA~~~t~hi~~~~~~f~lb~v~~~h~~~n~f ~~~i~u~:;:~~~ ~~~e::egdo:~~~~~i and its incorporation into a One-World Totalitarian State, where "Broth• erhood of Man" will s ubs titute for the Fatherhood of God. Those who initiated the plan to conscript the churches in the interest of a New World Order are the invisible masters of International Com .. munism who will dominate the new world governing order of which they are the architects and the medium through which they intend to put their program into effect is the National Council of Churches which subscribes to most of the policies outlined above. The determination of the invisible world masters to subvert Chris .. tian forces to their evil ends was the result of long, careful and subtle planning. Communism, like Death, loves a shining mark and the conversion of even one American Christian Minister to Soviet ideology contributes more to that atheistic cause throughout the world than the combined efforts of every Party Member in the United States. The psychology experts in International Communism had a deep and profound understanding of the propaganda value involved in the conversion of religious forces to their cause when they sent out their agents years ago to infiltrate seminaries and church schools in this country as a prelude to their subsequent campaign for One-World Gov• ernment which is now in fu11 force. They didn't expect to recruit members to the Communist Party; they didn't want them, in fact, and perhaps not one Minister in ten thousand carries a card. It was much more important that church leaders come out openly and from the pulpit a d V o c at e the policies for which Communists stand. This the National Council of Churches has done including a demand for the recognition by the United States of Com .. munist China where millions of Christians have been brutally murdered in cold blood. The National Council of Churches claims to represent almost forty million church members and if this is true and that number of reswnsible Americans actually approve the Council's political action, including the recognition of atheistic heathen nations, it portends spiritual bankruptcy in the United States and eventually the end of Christianity In the world unless the millions ot church members who do not endorse the policies of NCC take steps to withdraw their denominations from the national body. In the meantime, a special week should be set aside to be devoted to the rescue of fallen ministers during which time good Americans would pray for Ministers of the Gospel who have been led astray and conscripted to the cause of atheism and implore the Almighty to restore them to Christian service. Surely such nation-wide supplications would impel erring Ministers to kneel at the mourner's bench and to repent of their sins and would bring these lost sheep back to the fold where they would once again take up the Cross of Christ and hereafter minister only to the spiritual needs of their flock. 1--•y, 1959 ,( !yrd Asks Tax Exempt .­Privilege Be Revoked All good Americans are praying fervently that Senator Harry Flood Byrd of Virginia will be successful in his attempts to bring about the removal of the tax exemption priv­ilege which the Treasury Depart­ment extends to the National As­sociation for the Advancement of Colored People. Senator Byrd has been communi­cating with the Treasury Depart­ment on the subject for approxi­mately two years but while this agency can turn down the applica­tion of patriotic groups for tax ex­emption in one day, Senator Byrd has been unable to pry an answer from them in two years as to what action they intend to take on the NAACP. Not only is the NAACP not an educational organization but it is one of the most vicious "hate groups'' in existence and on this gr?~nd alone, its tax exemption przvilege should be withdrawn. The Department of Justice has expressed deep concern in putting an end to "hate organizations" and a good start could be made in this direction if the Treasury acted promptly to cease favoring a group whose political action has succeed~ ed in almost totally destroying the friendly relations between White and colored people in the South and replacing it with deadly hatred and contempt on the part of mem­bers of each race for the other. To the extent that it allows this •"bate organization·· to remain tax exempt, the Treasury is unfair to THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE HERE ARE SOME THINGS WE MUST LOVE AND OTHERS WE MUST HATE A press release from Washington on April 17 said that the Post Office Department is distressed about the amount of "hate mail" which is being distributed through pOstal channels, but does not quite know what to do about it. Also, in Congress there is a definite sentiment against "hate organi­zations" and several bills have been introduced with the hope of correct­ing the situation. We hope they get down to business and do something about it for if they go thoroughly into the matter-and are sincere and not just making a play for the minority vote-all good Americans should rejoice. In any authentic clean~up of hate groups, one of the first in this category to go will be the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People which is based solely on hatred and discontent and which has been able to spread these two ugly human qualities so widely throughout the Sor '1 that the good relations between the white and colored races have all but been destroyed. As for our own publication, it advocates and has from the beginning, nothing but love-love of a wholesome, desirable type. We plead in season and out for the American people to love their country, their Constitution and their Flag with undying devotion and also the principles of government and American traditions which once made this the greatest and most powerful nation on earth. We urge our lawmakers in Washington to love honesty, integrity and economy in government to the extent that they will undertake to lift the unbearable burden of debt which looms over the nation and stop the wanton waste of taxpayers' money which is making us the laughingstock of the world. The only hatred we feel is hatred for treason and disloyalty on the part of Americans who owe everything to this great Republic of ours for providing them with the framework of a government guaranteeing them the fullest measure of freedom it is possible for human beings to experience and who are abusing this great heritage by accepting false philosophies which are heading them for slave and concentration camps. ~~~ert~~:P::;rsd;;~~t a~~ ~"1!d~ Brainwashed Students Of Princeton ~n~ihd:a;~t 0:e:~~~t t~~ia~~~~i~~~ Write A New American Constitution an absolute detriment to both the ':\ ~hite and colored races.

Page 3 Presbyterians May Get Out of National Council Southern Presbyterian Church leaders have b e g u n marshaling their forces for a campaign whose objective is to secede from the Na­tional Council of C h u r c h e s of Christ in America, according to in~ formation from Atlanta where the movement started. From this it appears that we may be able to hold up our head again and be proud once more of the de­nomination to which we belong. The particular activity of the Na­tional Council which caused this action on the part of Southern Pres­byterians was a study conference at Cleveland last November which wound up with a demand that the United States recognize Commu4 nist China. There are scores of other reasons why the Presbyterians should with~ draw from the National Council and when, and if, they finally do, we predict many good Americans will return to the church of their forefathers. The Associated Press reports in a release from Washington that Vice President Nixon is going to visit Russia in July to open an American Exposition in Moscow. To complete the cozy little ar4 rangement, Russia will stage a similar exhibition in New York. This wilt develop " broader under­standing" between the American and Soviet peoples the President it . will. ~cry m~ke . uoin' cousins of the Bolsheviki and us. The Constitution is a written covenant with the people defining and reserving to the citizen the power' over the purse and over private property. The most colossal mistake in the annals of time was the adoption of the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution levying a Federal income tax and which enlarged rather than diminished the taxing powers of Congress. It cost King Charles I his crown and his head to do to the people of England in 1646 what the Six­teenth Amendment did to the peo4 pie of the United States 267 years tater-take title to the property of the citizens. The right to own private prop­erty was established with the adoption of the Constitution of the United States. Today that pro­vision of the Constitution, like most others, is a dead letter thanks to the income tax amendment. Michigan farmer, Stanley Yank­us, seems determined to really leave the United States and reside in Australia because of our idiotic farm regulation:>. The best inter­ests of the country would be far better served if we could keep good citizens like Mr. Yankus here, and deport the nitwits in Congress who voted for the screwy legisla­tion which drove the Michigan farmer out of the country.

It must also regret­fully depict, at the same time, the shame and depravity of an important sector of our communications media-the national news services which feed important happenings to the daily newspapers of the United States. First, we would call attention to the vast wordage accorded by the press to the granting of Pulitzer, Nobel and other "Prizes" and Founda~ tion "Awards" bestowed by left-wing groups on American recipients the majority of whom, if not openly antagonistic to the American form of government, are at least committed to a philosophy whose overall ob~ jective is to overthrow it and replace it with a One-World State. Also, when the representatives of the Hollywood movie industry have settled on a trashy production which is of sufficient propaganda value to merit the bestowal of an Oscar, practically every metropolitan daily in the country has reporters on thfl scene to record the spectacular event for posterity. And if any of the notorious soiled doves of film­land wing their way to Hollywood to take part in the momentous pro~ ceedings, the press coverage given them is the equivalent of that usually reserved for visiting royalty. the wind but it takes an eagle to fly 1s not extended to those who merely are singled out for their contribu- A helpless sparrow can drift withj Unfortunately, this type of journalistic courtesy and consideration against the storm. }~~n at~:i:::~ri~;n~~r;;s~~~ti~o~afoJ~~e~~~~~t ~ne t~~l ~~i~e~tyS~~t~~~ading THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: The powers not delegated to the United Stetu by the Conditution, nor prohibited by it to the Stetu are reserved to the Stetesrespeetively,ortothepeople. Clash of Two Hard Objects Results In Painful Accident Following the uproar in the Sen­ate on the occasion of the confirm­ation of Clare Booth Luce as Am­bassador to Brazil and the lady's verbal tussle with Senator Wayne Morse of Oregon whose mental condition she attributed to a kick in the head by a horse, we went into our back files . We had a vague recollection of having taken a crack at the subject ourselves several years ago and were curious about what we had said. In the September, 1951, edition of the Southern Conservative, page 2, we found this contribution to the incident which was titled "Clash of Two Hard Objects Results in Pain­ful Accident": "Senator Wayne ·Morse of Ore­gon, who enjoys the courtesy title of Republican, but who has voted faithfully to carry out New Deal and Fair Deal policies of govern­ment since his election to the Up­per House, was reported in the press to have been injured when kicked in the head by a mule. "Latest information is that the Senator is in good condition and will recover, but the extent of in­juries to the mule was not learned." Mrs. Luce is wrong and should apologize. It was a mule and not a horse which kicked the Oregon statesman. The House of Representatives approved $100,000,000 in new funds for the new program called Development Loan Fund and which provides development loans to foreign nations. Apparently ashamed of their colleagues in the House for making this measly ap­propriation, the Senate doubled it and voted $200,000,000. The Presi­dent had asked for $225,000,000. After aU what is a mere $100,- 000,000? On April21, approximately five thousand Americans were assembled in Constitution Hall in \Vashington. The occasion was the meeting of the Daughters of the American Revolution, an organization which for sixty-nine years has labored unceasingly in behalf of the preservation of the priceless heritage of freedom bequeathed us by the founders of the Republic and an organization which has stood as firmly as the Rock of Gibraltar against powerful attempts of subversive forces to infiltrate it and divert its influence and strength to the Cause of International Communism to which a tragic number of national organizations are now committed. One of the principal events on this session's agenda was the pre­sentation of a Citation for Notable Patriotic Service to the one who, in the.!!_opinion, deserved this tribute as set forth in the Citation: Hin grateful acknowledgement of talent and moral courage, of loy~ alty to a high concept of patriotic citizenship; for alertness to activities detrimental to the American Republic and fearless presentation of in­formation; in appreciation for outstanding and consistent effort to de~ fend, protect and preserve in its perfection the Constitution of the United States of America." The Citation went to Dan Smoot, distinguished author and com­mentator of Dallas, whose name is familiar to millions of Americans within Continental United States where his weekly Reports, as well as his radio and television programs have stirred sluggish thought pro­cesses to a degree of action which has been disconcerting to the enemies of good government in high places. We imagine that Dan Smoot was proud to be singled out for this distinction as any normal American would be. We believe, also, that if the people of Texas had been advised of the matter, they would have been grateful for this tribute to one of their citizens. At a time when those high in the conduct of national affairs put a premium on treason and a penalty on patriotism, it is the supreme accolade to be held up to public view as an American citizen of unquestioned loyalty to Country, its Flag and its Constitution and as a dedicated patriot who works hard at the job of defending them. We imagine, too, that Mr. Smoot, being human, would have been pleased if the representatives of the press services who were ptesent at the event had seen fit to include mention of it in their releases to Texas papers and especially to those in Dallas where he has made his home for many years. Since Dan Smoot is a devoted family man who has tal<en his marital vows seriously and whose domestic life has been serene and unruffled, it probably could not be expected that he would be entitled to the space which is automatically granted to an Eddie Fisher, an Elizabeth Taylor or an Ingrid Bergman, but we do think that the bestowal of this coveted honor on a distinguished Texan should have rated a few sticks of type back among the want-ads in the papers of his owp home town. The omission detracts none from the glory of Dan Smoot's accom­plishments in behalf of Americanism which resulted in th~ conferring of th is Citation on him by an organization which is without peer among those who are ever watchful of tbe nation's internal security and na~ tiona) defense. It is, however, a tragic reflection on a certain sector of the press which grants unstinted space to the political and social deviates of human society but insultingly ignores the achievements of patriotic citizens, thereby rendering aid and comfort to the enemy who has sworn, with his hand on the Communist Manifesto, to destroy the American Republic. May, 1959 The Braying of A Jackass On A Warm Summer Night All those who have ever lived on an old-fashioned farm will concede that the weirdest and most repul­sive sound ever to offend the hu­man ear is the loud and mournful braying of a jackass on a warm summer night. Memories like this came back to us coincident with the recent un .. fortunate remarks of Harry Tru ... man to students of left-wing uni ... versities and, specifically, his ref ... erence to members of the House Un-American Activities Committee who have worked their hearts out to expose Communist traitors as being, themselves, "Un-American." The a b I e and hard-working Americans who make up this com~ mittee are regarded by those who value the safety and security of the United States, as having done a splendid job of exposing the slimy Communist v e r m i n with whom they must deal in the face of heavy odds against them because of op~ position to the investigation in high quarters. This implied defense of Commu .. nists and castigation of patriotic Americans could, if uttered by others than a former President of the United States, be attributed to rank disloyalty to American insti ... tutions and devotion to the system of government for which Commu­nists stand, but this charge is un­thinkable in connection with Mr. Truman. In this case, it can only be as­sumed that his asinine utterances were prompted by that unexp l ain~ able impulse which impels a jack­ass to cut loose and render the night hideous with his unprovoked and senseless blast. Dictatorial Educationists Add to Little Rock's Troubles Three Little Rock High Schools which have been closed for a year to preserve segregation, have been cut from the "accredited" list of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. This was intended to make it harder for s t u d e n t s of those schools, once they are re-opened, to get into college. The organization gave the Little Rock schools the choice of either getting out or being thrown out, so they got out. We are sure that Little Rock citi~ zens recognize that it is an honor to be disassociated with the North~ ern group who so arbitrarily dic­tate policies of schools. The Little Rock people are fight· ing for a principle involved. The North Central Association of CoJ .. leges and Secondary Schools obvi­ously is not concerned in princi .. pies. It is better that students never see the inside of a college than that they acquire the type of "educa .. lion" enjoyed by the members who compose this dictatorial group.

May, 1959 THE S 0 U T H ERN C 0 N S E R VAT IV E Page 5 AMERICAN CITIZEN DENIED RIGHT OF TRIAL BY JURY There are no more useful citi~ zens in the United States than the men who work the soil for a living. These farmers are the country's real producers and it is ironic that they should be hampered and ha­rassed by legislation passed by members of Congress who have never produced anything them4 selves except hot air. The Yankus affair was enough to shame and discredit us before the whole world, but the case of John R. Donaldson of New London, Ohio, is even worse. He was fined $322.56 for over­planting wheat in 1957. At that time the limit allowed by law was 15 acres. The catch was that Don­aldson didn't plant over 15 acres. The normal yield in the area where he farms is 24 bushels per acre, but because of more productive and better farming methods Don­aldson produced around 150 bush­els per acre. So the government judged him by the amount of wheat produced, rather than the acreage, fined him and got a judgment. The infuriated farmer paid out $4,000 in legal fees trying to get a hearing to present his case, but was refused. This happened right here in the United States, too, and not in Rus­sia, Poland, Czechoslovakia or any other Iron Curtain country. "I herewith denounce this judg­" lnerrt against me as being a gross violation of all American Constitu­tional and Anglo-Saxon concepts of the term 'due process'," Donaldson said in a communication to the Northern District of the United States District Court of Ohio. ur was denied the right to a trial before a jury even though this right is guaranteed by the seventh article of the Bill of Rights and is also guaranteed by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure enacted by the Congress for the conduct of the courts. "! was prejudged guilty of over­planting wheat before entering the court and was given no opportunity by the court to prove the falsity of such claim even though I was fully able to do so. Further, the United States Department of Agriculture and the Department of. Justice of­fered not one iota of proof of any ~~.d to support the claim against ''In this prostitution of American justice the Federal courts have as­sumed the same shameful role as that enacted by Pontius Pilate in the tragic drama of Calvary. Fun­damental human rights have been sacrificed to Socialistic or Commu­nistic expediency." There are many Socialistic Jaws on the nation's statute books which reflect on the integrity of those who voted for them and on the in­telligence of the American people for tolerating them, but nothing tops the monstrosity known as the Agricultural Adjustment Act. THE DAY WHEN MORAL DECAY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY SET IN Looking back on history and con- gregation Keneseth Israel, Phila­templating the moral decay of the delphia, intoned in part: ~::u g;~:: i~e;~scr::i~~~~~ip~: "Incline our hearts to pity for in 1936 during the National Con- the aged and helpless, but let not vention when Roosevelt put the axe that pity be the 'counterfeit pre­to the principles which underlay sentment' of smug content ...

Not only did he sell out the South, which had voted solidly for his election in 1932, by repealing the two-thirds rule in nomination of Presidential candidates, but it was at this convention that the first note was sounded warning of the impending transition of his Party into a transmission belt for Inter­national Socialism. Roosevelt had over three years in which to lay his plans for this transition from Constitutional Gov­ernment to a One-World Socialist Welfare State and it pleased him to sound out the delegates to the Phil­adelphia convention by means of a political prayer offered by the Chaplain carefully chosen for the occasion. Delivering the Invocation, Wil­liam H.

" In that carefully consider!'~ pray­er, policies of government strange to the American Republic were enunciated, but they were to form the basis of future political action by the party from that day for­ward. It also marked the beginning of the propaganda campaign to per­suade Ministers to leave their pul­pits and enlist under the banner of the extreme Leftists in their march toward International Socialism - the identical twin of World Com-munism. It was a black day in the history of the American Republic. Over-privileged rulers and un­der- privileged citizens constitute a force which always throws gov­ernment out of balance and this fatal combination always results in the downfall of the government with excessive power. ------------------------------- Cold Hard Facts Which Almost Everybody Except Members of Congress Understands Thoughtful Americans returning from Europe say that over there there is no hysteria about the "Ber­lin Crisis." Apparently they regard the whole thing as just another "gimmick" of Khrushchev to keep the world stirred up and to com­pound the confusion which is neces­sary to the perpetuation of Com­munism. It has long been suspected that the matter has been agitated here in order to prevent any reduction in foreign aid programs and to blackmail Congress into keeping up its continual raid on the purse of the citizen. If it were not the "Berlin Crisis" it would be some other crisis or emergency in some other part of the world which would give Ameri­can leaders an excuse to invoke that worn-out cliche that we must perpetually pour money into some alien country "to stave off Com­munism." In this connection the Indianap­olis, Indiana, Star on April 12 point­ed out the fallacy of this line of reasoning in a brilliant editorial which said in part: "For an actual case history of how foreign aid has nothing to do with pro or anti-Communism take Egypt and Iraq. The Soviets have advanced credits, according to their own figureS and the State Denart­ment's booklet, of $782,000,000 to Egypt, which is still the most loan­ed Oy the Soviets to any non-Com­munist country. Iraq, on the other hand, got all of its economic and military aid from the United States and Great Britain. The Soviet Un­ion gave Iraq nothing whatsoever. But it is Iraq that is now virtually Communist and it is Egypt's Presi­dent Nasser who is leading the Arab anti-Communist cause! Any­body. who can contend that foreign aid ftghts or advances Communism from this example has an upside down mind." This one example alone is enough to convince any sane person that all the billions of dollars we have sent abroad to "contain Commu· nism" is money wasted and thrown away, and the majority of Ameri­cans are convinced. It is only members of Congress who can't get it through their thick skulls that we are merely bankrupt­ing the American treasury without accomplishing anything in the way of results, by the profligate squan­dering of taxpayers' dollars in this manner. And members of Congress, or at least the majority of them, cannot ~ .... be changed in their thinking by mere facts. Too many of them are galley slaves of Invisible Masters who have done their thinking for them so long that they can only obey orders. Year after year they will ri se on the floor of the Senate and the House and spew forth the same old tripe about "foreign aid" which they know in their hearts to be false. They are on a mental tread­mill from which they are unable to escape. While they know that a quick lethal blow could be delivered to Communism without the expendi­ture of a red cent in "foreign aid.'' there are not fifty in both the Sen­ate and House who have the cour· age, statesmanship and plain com­mon sense to demand withdrawal of recognition of Russia and the cancellation of our membership in the United Nations and its removal from the United States. So-Called Labor Control Law One of World's Richest Men Is Nothing More Than Farce Given $8,000,000 By U.S. Both the House and Senate in Washington have persisted in main­taining the farce of preparing a "labor control" bill. Senator John McClellan of Ar­kansas made a gesture toward strengthening the Kennedy bill by adding what he called a "bill of rights" amendment, but even if it had passed as originally written, it still would have fallen far short of controlling labor. And his "bill of rights" was so emasculated that nothing but the bill was left. Kennedy's purpose in writing a labor bill in the first place was to attract conservatives to his candi­dacy for the Presidency which is uppermost in his mind. It is gener­ally regarded as having been dic­tated by Walter Reuther and of course aOy measure which has Reuther's approval is worse than no bill at all. Until they can write a real labor bill which places union labor under the anti-trust law, the public will get no benefit whatever from any so-calJed labor legislation. So long as labor u n i o n s are stronger and have more power than government, any attempt to con­trol them is a useless waste of time and effort. Here's interesting news for those who are desperately concerned in the mad race which eternally goes on in Washington to spend or give away the greatest amount of tax­payers money in a given length of time. Senator John Williams of Dela­ware revealed on April 23 that the Federal government had made a gift of $8,000,000 to Aristotle Onas­sis, Greek shipping magnate and one of the half dozen richest men In the world. It appears from Senator Wil­liams' disclosures that the Federal government had a claim against the Greek for $8,000,000 as a re­sult of a suit against him. Onassis, who has Argentine citi­zenship and operates tankers all over the world, recently signed a contract to have three tankers built in this country, two of which cost $12,650 each and one $26,000,000. When the contract was signed, it contained a clause dropping the government's claim against Onas· sis for the $8,000,000. Perhaps this comes under the head of "foreign aid" and no doubt Mr. Onassis comes under the cate­gory of "underprivileged" citizens of the world to whom we have pledged assistance. Pago 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE May, 1959 LEGISLATURE MAY PASS LAW FORCING PEOPLE TO KEEP THEIR CLOTHES ON In Texas a law has been introduced in the Legi slature which would force "nudists" to keep their clothes on except when they're in the shower bath. It 'would appear te us that no law would be necessary and that the common law of decency should take care of the situation if enforced. . Human perversion takes many forms, but one of the most revolting is represented by this queer breed of human beings who call themselves "nudists.'' Personally, we think that these characters who get together in one big, happy family of men, women and children, take off their clothes and start skipping through the buttercups, are as insane as any screwball who fancies that he is the Emperor Napoleon, and that they should be put behind lock and key. Several men and women representing one of the North Texas nudist colonies went to Austin to appear before the House Committee on Juris~ prudence which had the bill under consideration, to plead their Consti· tutional rights and to oppose passage of the bill. Some of the members of the House had suggested, hopefully, that in order to give the "bare" facts about the cult and what it stands for, its spokesmen should appear in the uniform of their avocation, but Texas weather has been unseasonably cold this Spring and the proponents of the measure had to keep their clothes on. However, if members of the Committee were contemplating any visions of the "body beautiful," they may console themselves that they probably haven't missed anything. Hard·boiled newspaper reporters who have "covered'' these naked events insist that the procedure is repulsive in the extreme and that the colonies are composed of knock-kneed and spavined old men and that the figures of the women are molded along the lines of a Duroc Jersey sow. Apparently, shapely young women of the cult don't waste their art on Nudist Colonies. Presumably they go to Hollywood and try to sell ~eir wares to the movies. \. , RACIAL AGITATORS BRING\ IF THIS IS 'BLIGHT' LYNCHING BACK TO SOUTH LET'S HAVE MORE OF IT It took the people of the South a long time to stamp out lynching as a substitute for legal justice. Now, thanks to all the racial in­tegration agitators who inspired ig­norant Negroes to think they could commit any crime without fear of punishment, lynching has come back. On May 1, the Dallas Morning News carried this editorial on Little Rock, the beleaguered city which has been attacked from many angles but which, in spite of it all, seems to be doing right well: "It is the vogue among commen~ tators of a sort to deplore, depre· ciate and denounce Little Rock.

FORMER DIPLOMAT CHARGES ONE MILLION AMERICANS NOW ENGAGED IN SUBVERSION The grave danger to the United States today results from a break· down of the. American system of Constitutional Government, chaos, Creeping Socialism in lieu of Free Enterprise, threatened destruction of racial integrity, Communist in· filtration and the complete aban­donment of American foreign pol· icy, according to the Honorable Hugh G. Grant, of Augusta, Ga., former member of the State De· partment and United States Min· ister to Albania and Thailand. Grant, a founder and former president of the States' Rights Council of Georgia, was guest speaker at a dinner and statewide rally of the North Carolina Defend· ers of States' Rights, Inc., at the Sir Walter Raleigh Hotel in Ra· leigh. The Defenders organization, chartered last November, is dedi­cated to "national integrity, Con· stitutional government, racial in· tegrity, States' Rights, individual liberties and private property." The Rev. James P. Dees, Rector of Tri· nity Episcopal Church, Statesville, N.C., is president. "As leader of the so-called Free World," Grant said, "we find our· selves not only mired up at home in socialistic projects and a huge national debt of 283 billion dollars, the bi~gest debt in all of our his· tory, but also floundering abroad with farftung commitments around the globe, military and economic, requiring an enormous drain on our resources. Despite 'pacts' piled on top of 'pacts! designed to line up 'friendly Allies,' we have todav fewer friends throughout the world than ever before. "There is not Jikely to be any shooting war over Berlin,'' the for· mer d i p 1 o m at declared, "since world conquest for Communism without war is the basic strategy of the Soviets. Their tactics are bluff, propaganda, and subversion wherever there is fertile ground. "That there is fertile ground for subversion in the United States is indicated in reports of the House un-American Activities Committee revealing shocking Communist ac­tivity in this country through the enlistment, in some 200 organiza· tions, of more than a million Amer· ican citizens in a nationwide cam· paign of political subversion. Many of these Americans, according to the Committee report, would be aghast if they understood the ex­tent to which they benefit the Com .. munist conspiracy." Grant charged that the Commu· nist conspiracy in the United States has been materially aided by top· ranking federal officials and agen­cies. He cited certain Supreme Court decisions which were sever­Iy criticized recently by the Amer .. ican Bar Association as encourag .. ing the increase of Communist ac­tivity in the United States. "!~e SuP.reme Court race mixing deciSIOns and the Eisenhower troop invasion of Little Rock," Grant said, "played right into the hands of the Communists in their plan to create racial tension, strife and vio~ lence in the United States. "These federal judicial and ex· ecutive acts, linked with the pro~ posed new Civil Rights legislation pending in the Congress," the speaker continued, .. point to an all·out Federal Police State cen· tered in Washington, with the pow~ er to control the individual acts and thoughts of all the citizens of all the States, North, South, East and West. A Police State is a Com­munist State!" In discussing the controversy now raging over Federal Court or­ders to desegregate the public schools, Grant said that the final decision rests with eleven Southern States where there is so far no school integration (Alabama, Flor~ ida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississip· pi, South Carolina), or only "token" or "spotty" race mixing (North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Ar­kansas, Texas). "The present defensive strategy of these States to delay action and in some cases to adopt 'token' in· tegration or 'local option,' is not the answer," Grant declared. "The Constitutional right of the State to operate its schools as it chooses, without federal interference, should be forcibly asserted. The State's responsible political offj .. cials should invoke the rule of In­terposition - Nullification - of the un-Constitutional acts ot the federal judiciary and its agents and keep the schools open on a segre· gated basis as heretofore." IT'S HAPPENED - SOUTH RISES TO AID 'BROKE' MICHIGAN GOV'T (Orlando, Florida, Sentinel) A gift-wrapped package of $10,· 000 left Tampa as a present to the financially troubled Michigan gov­ernment from the Worth Tampa Chamber of Commerce. In a telegram to Gov. Mennen (Soapy) Williams, the chamber noted that Michigan, because of a legislative hassle, was unable to pay many state employees this week. If the Constitution of the United States were still in force and ef­fect , every member of the Su~ preme Court would be impeached. That document provides that Jus· tices shalt hold their job "during good behavior." Because of un­Constitutional and un-American decisions in which they have all participated, they are ineligible to continue to serve under the ugood behavior" clause. ·------ c ~·~ee r a~~ ~~~d~Tc~~~C: ~e~~~~~~ ~~:;,;,am said.

J. f.4ay, 1959 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 7 Nixon Suggests Further Whittling Away Of Sovereignty of The United States Richard Nixon's extreme, One~ World leanings were emphasized in a speech in New York City on April 13 which should warn the Ameri~ can people of what might be ex­pected if he should be nominated and elected President in 1960. In that speech he proposed that the American Government abdicate in favor of the United Nations World Court the right to determine unilaterally whether the subject matter of a particular dispute lies within the jurisdiction of this coun~ try or should come under the .World Court's jurisdiction. He added: "Clearly all disputes regarding domestic matters must reTY_lain permanently within the jur~ isd1ction of our own courts. Only matters which are essentially in~ ternational in character should be referred to the International Court." What Mr. Nixon is asking is that the Senate of the United States further whittle away American sov~ ereignty by granting to an Inter~ national body such as the World Court the authority to decide what constitutes a domestic subject af. feeling the people of the United States. Gunnar Myrdahl is not a World Court. He is just one individual way off in Sweden but he arrogated to himself the authority to decide on racial integration of public schools in the United States and got away with it. The Supreme Court bowed meekly to his wishes and issued the ruling ordering such integra· tion. If one lone Marxist in Stockholm can whip the Supreme Court of the United States into submission conceming a domestic subject, it staggers the imagination to con· sider what a powerful World Court could do if given unbridled license to decide what is and what is not a "domestic matter." The Internationalist or One· World theory of government holds that in an ideal World State there are no such ~hings as national boundaries, national loyalty or national considerations. All people of all nations are subject to a One· World Central Authority whose edicts are the supreme law of the universe and even an idiot should be able to understand the perilous implications in granting any such power to a World Court. If the American people do not emphatically and overwhelmingly repudiate any and all International· 1st, One· World candidates of either party for the Presidency of the United States, they deserve to re· side in the ultimate Slave State which they are creating for them· selves. W1tlter Bill Would Prevent Thrift, Economy Unknown a otage In Emergency Words in Lawmakers Lexicon Hon. Francis E. Walter, Con· gressman from Pennsylvania, has introduced a bill making it a crime for an officer of a labor organiza· tion to interfere with foreign ship· ments of defense mateFial in time ot war or during an emergency proclaimed by the President of the United States. It is incredible, of course, that such legislation should be neces· sary because any officer of a labor organization who sought to inter· fere with such shipments under such conditions would be a traitor to the United States. The fact that a bill to prevent this interference has been introduced indicates that officials of labor unions would do just that, regardless of the conse~ quences to the security of the United States. In fact. Harry Bridges, President ot the Longshoremen's Union ad .. mitted in testimony to the House Committee on Un·American Activ· ities recently that he would advo· cate a longshoreman strike to im~ pede shipments of arms to Chiang Kai·Shek in the event of a conflict With Communist China. In all likelihood Congressman Walter's bill can't be passed be­cause Walter Reuther controls a sufficient number of votes in both the House and Senate to prevent the passage of any bill which he regards as uanti·labor" in content. While it is true that Bridges was thrown out of Reuther's old CIO on the ground that the Australian la­bor racketeer was pro·Communist, in a showdown labor unions stand together and for Reuther to allow Like all other States which have been on a spending binge in recent years, Texas has found its treasury empty and its lawmakers scurry· ing around like field mice trying to find something to tax that is not already taxed to the breaking point. In the regular session of the Leg· islature, which has just come to an end, the solons came up with a bill which taxed everything except the baby's nipple. There was such a deafening up· roar from the folks back home that the lawmakers backed down and wrote some sort of substitute which called for only a small por­tion of the revenue which the spenders had demanded. Now the problem is how to raise the balance. In a case like this, common sense would suggest that the only answer is to stop spending money and to cut out the Socift!istic personal services to the citizen which dedi· cated Marxists have incorporated into Federal and State government and which are bankrupting the States and the nation, as Lenin and Engels hopefully predicted they would. Thrift and economy are words which are unknown In the lexicon of the modern lawmaker. this legislation to pass Congress would be like letting his union members cross th~ picket line of another union which had called a strike. It will be interesting to watch and see whether this needed legis· lation by Congressman Walter ever gets out of the heavily-stacked La­bor Committee of the House. You Can't Take Your Rights And Freedoms With You When You Cross The Party Line Our heartiest congratulations to the Atlas Film Corporation of Oak Park, Illinois, with offices in Chi· cago, Washington, D.C., and Holly­wood. They have put out a brief trea· tise on Americanism that every citizen should read and which is reproduced below: It's hard to belie"ve that anything as good as America has to be sold, but it does. It has to be sold be­cause we in this country profess to be so "goldarned" busy perfect­ing it, that. we've pretty nearly lost sight of how good it was to start with. There's an awful lot of loose· lipped chatter going on these days by theorists, social planners, intel· lectual barnstorm troopers, and just plain, clay-headed idealists, who seek to convince the American people that we ought to bow our heads in shame and apologize for America. They're a tireless lot too - they've been harping away on the same old flea-bitten, dog-eared tune so long, that they've succeed· ed in convincing a lot of people that we'll just have to scrap the whole frame·work of our govern· ment and start fresh with a new one to make it any good. How do you identify these goofs? Well, unfortunately it's not too easy. You see they don't wear any badge, or special colored necktie -they don't look alike-and more aangerous still - they don't all preach and act alike either. Because if they did, you'd prob­ably say, "Look here, you jerks, I don't like what you're trying to do to my country! Cut it out!" And then if they didn't you'd probably walk right up and sock 'em. Unfortunately, he's not easily identified-you see, he might be a preacher, or a teacher, he might be a business man, or a professional man, an industrialist, or a senator; he might be a judge, or he might not be a "he" at all. In fact, he might be a SHE. They are everywhere--and their number is legion. They w an t to make America over again to fit the screwball pat· tern of a world order that came into being in Europe and almost knocked the props right out from under the whole cockeyed world. It's your America they want to tear down and overhaul-the same America that has given us a better chance than any other people on this earth ever got. The America that was able to come to the rescue when the whole world was tumb· ling into chaos. These veopie are talking about the new social order-they're pop-- .,.. pin' their tops about our responsi­bility to a new world order-a new economic equity-controlled indus­try- regulated labor for security. They're Jatchin' onto the affirma­tive, Bud, and accentuating "Hell'' out of the negative. They're talk~ ing about everything under the sun except the America you know and want to keep. Don't say it can't hapoen here­it is ha,ppening here NOW-and we'd better do something about it, too. What, you ask? How about going ahead by go­ing back to America-and stop try­ing to be a good-time Charley to the whole world at the expense of America's future existence? It's all right to keep on trying to hit the moon but it's due time that we joined the crusade to rid Amer· ica of a minority of ideological nit· wits and renegades--who scoff a4 and make sport of, the rights and privileges guaranteed under a con­stitution written in the fine script of red· blood. Keep them, Brother! You can't take them with you across the party line. NOTORIOUS AUSTRALIAN COMMUNIST ADMITS POWER OVER U.S. SECURITY Even as he defied the Supreme Court of the United States to de· port him, the notorious Communist Harry Bridges arrogantly flaunted his vast power over the security of the United States when he ap­peared before the House Un·Ameri· can Activities Committee in Wash· lngton recently. Bridges made no secret of the fact that unions in Communist countries were in position to order those in this country Not to handle shipping in United States ports. International transport unions could invoke a worldwide shipping boycott when they decided it was in their interest to do so, the Aus· tralian union thug testified. He is president of the International Long· sharemen and Warehousemen's Un­ion which can issue such orders and in this position naturally knows whereof he speaks. Members of the Committee ex· pressed apprehension over such power in Bridges' hands but there is nothing they can do about it. Perhaps if a serious emergency confronts the country Congress may wake up at long last and curb the evil power of national and in· ternational labor unions over tho security of the American Republic, something they have never had the nerve to do thus far. It can only be hoped that when our lawmakers finally become alerted to the dan­ger, it won't be too late. When asked if he or members of his Union were members of. the Communist Party, Bridges took the cowardly route pursued by various other traitors who have appeared before the committee and hid be· hind the Fifth amendment. And while the members of the Supreme Court can take on them­selves the authority to issue orders that helpless little children of the South must attend Integrated schools, they are totally impotent and unable to do a thing about it when the beetle-browed Bridges stands up to them and tells them what he will, and will not, do.

HE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE A FRIENDLY GESTURE BUT New Worid Planners Prepared to Handle D~tE~SN:~e ~~~~ o~~~~~!~e~s Every'ihing and We Do Mean Everything everywhere to sound off periodic­ally against "class legislation" and in this respect members of the. Tex­as Legislature are typical of tfie1r colleagues throughout the country. And yet last month, both the House and Senate of the Texas Legislature passed a measure that was not only "class legislation" but was enacted for the benefit of one man, Lyndon Johnson. Under Texas law a candidate's name can appear but once on a general election ballot, but this new measure which originated in the Senate would permit Johnson, or any other candidate for statewide office, to seek national office at the same time. The bill was introduced follow­ing a recent visit of Johnson to Austin in which he addressed a joint session of the Legislature. The purpose of the bill would be to allow Johnson's name _to appear as a candidate for the Senate while at the same time seeking the Presi4 dential nomination. It was a friendly gesture, but a futile action. The Fair Dealers are not likely to nominate Johnson or any other man below the Mason and Dixon Line. Southerners have no influence in the Party and haven't had since 1936 when Roosevelt persuaded Southern delegates to the Demo4 cratic Convention in Philadelphia turn traitor to the South and vote for repeal of the two~thirds rule. The Party belongs to Northern and Eastern Socialists now and Walter Reuther will plck a candi­date from that area when the Con­vention is held on July 11, 1960 at Los Angeles. The strike of coal miners in the Eastern Kentucky coal mines in which bombs were used by the strikers and two men were killed caused little repercussion in Con4 gress and no demand by Javitts of New York that a law be passed to prevent these bombing outrages. Obviously it Is a!l right when Un­ion men do the bombing. An all4 Negro school in James4 town in East Texas has voted to remain segregated and not ask for integration in white schools. If let alone and not harassed by Red agitatcws, most of them would take the same posit.ion. Sometimes we doubt if any(:hing can be done when a great nation is determined to destroy itself. Many Conservative Americans who thought that Prof. Kenneth Colegrove of Northwestern Uni4 versity was in their corner are said to be blazing mad over a textbook of his which, they claim, proves he is in the opposite camp. In the February edition of the paper, we pra'ised a member of the Texas Senate as a sound-think .. ing solon and thirty days later he publicly advocated a sales tax for Texas. That should teach us never to say anything good about a poli­tician. The representative known as the "field consultant" of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America is making her annual Spring pilgrim4 a.ge to Texas where she is billed to speak in many cities on the subject "Family Planning Around the World." Oddly enough her activities are largely centered in local chapters of the National Association of Social Workers which is a bit confusing to simple minds like ours since a vast majority of these social workers are middle-aged unmarried ladies who are not potential parents, planned or otherwise. We should have had a hint of what was coming way back in the 1930's when Roosevelt boasted that in the coming New World Order everything would be under control, that nothing would happen and that everything would be planned. We don't believe that even he, however, realized just how right he was or what form this "planning" was going to take. We don't think he looked ahead and visualized the time, which seems to be upon us, when an American woman might be discouraged from producing offspring without a permit from a Social Welfare worker. In the days when we were growing up the only "planning" which was done on any notable scale was that which preceded Fall cotton4 picking, Winter hog-killing and Spring house cleaning and the plans even in those events were not hard and fast because they all depended on the weather. In those days they didn't plan to have, or not to have, children. They just hauled off and had 'em, God willing. And if they didn't have any, they just figured it was the will of a Higher Power and visiting ladies from Washington didn't have a thing to do with it. Of course, that was in the days before the admission of millions of aliens made it necessary for us to restrict our own population and to limit the arrival of native-born Americans on the mortal scene to those having passports from a social welfare agency. The birth of a child in those days was, for some forgotten reason, regarded as the supreme miracle of Creation and a new-born babe was welcomed as a divine little "Bundle from Heaven" who was not required to present credentials from a local social worker when making the tran­sition from "out of the everywhere into the here." While confessing to old·fashioned views we, personally, believe that the architects of a Brave New World are going just a mite beyond their jurisdiction in undertaking to make decisions in matters concerning other people which, up to this period in civilization, at least, have been con4 sidered as more or less personal. WHY THEY CALL IT THE SOLID SOUTH (A man in California has written us reminding us of an editorial which appeared in the first edition of the Southern Conservative in Jan· uary, 1950, and which he thinks appropriate at this time. He asks us to reproduce it. In addition to its first appearance we re-ran it once be4 fore on request. This makes three times and it must be the last because we don't want to wear it threadbare and bore our readers with repetition. -Editor) Above and beyond political considerations which no longer exist, there's a reason for calling it the Solid South. Together the people of Dixie have undergone many vicissitudes and humiliations both at the hand of nature and of man. Southerners lived, somehow, through the horrors of Civil War and the tragedy of carpet baggers, degrading poverty and Reconstruction Days. They have suffered and survived attacks of various plagues, pests and persons including yellow fever, hookworm, grasshoppers, the boll weevil and Eleanor Roosevelt. Millions of us have been disinherited by the party of our fathers and have been compelled, like lost souls, to wander in the political wilder~ ness without an altar on which to lay our faith or an anchor for our allegiance. Other millions of us have strayed off after strange political gods and have worshipped at alien shrines in a peculiar gesture of loyalty to an empty label and to the ghost of a party which lives only In name. But when a common enemy attacks and threatens to shatter the dignity of our daily pattern of life, we usually drift back together again and present a united front. Perhaps this is because of some faint lingering trace of the old Rebel Spirit which refused to completely surrender when the bayonets were stacked at Appomattox and the Confederate Flag dipped Its colors in a last salute. Anyway, that's how it is down in Dixie and when the Civil Rights menace rears Its ugly head in Congress again, all good Southerners will fall in line, shoulder the old musket and come out "a-shootin'." That's why they call it the Solid South. May, 1959 LIKE TENNYSON'S BROOK THE SEARCH FOR TAX MONEY GOES ON AND ON Tax grabbers on lower levels, no less than those in Washington, are hard pressed as a result of over~ squandering and officials of States and municipalities are beating the bushes for fast money in order to keep their heads above water. Recently a man with a brief case visited our office and announced impressively: "I'm from the Tax Department of the city." Being naturally suspicious of strangers with brief cases and bol· stered with the knowledge that we don't own any taxable property, we answered - perhaps rather rudely: "So what?" We finally convinced him that, as a source of revenue, we were a total wash-out, so he prepared to go. Before he left we asked him if he had been sent especially to call on us and he said no, he had just dropped in. Apparently he just saw the door open and wandered in like a rag4 picker looking for old clothes or used razor blades. The incident was of no import• ance, but it reminded us forcefully of the great lengths to which pub­lic officials now go in making sure that all tax victims are picked clean and that no small item is over• looked in the eternal and never· ending search for more funds to enable them to do more spending. COURT SHOULD REPEAL PREVIOUS LAWS BEFORE MAKING NEW ONES If the Supreme Court is empow· erect to make "the law of the land" then how about this decision ren· dered by the Court in 1928 in a case titled Olmstead vs. United States? "The makers of the Constitution sought to protect Americans in their beliefs, their thoughts, their emotions and t h e i r sensations. They conferred .. as against the gov .. ernment, the right to be let· alone -the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civil­ized man." When Earl Warren's Court now seeks to pass laws it should at least go through the motion of repealing previous laws which are in direct conflict with their findings. Surely the right "to be let alone" as set forth by the Court before it became a joke and a travesty, is just as sacred a law as the right to meddle In the private affairs of the citizen which the nine lncompe· tents on the Court now arrogate to themselves. "General Dwight D. Eisenhower was quoted as saying that he was half American and half English in World War II and is now one­twelfth American, which make! cold chills creep up and dow.n our spine."-From Southern Conserva• tive, September, 1951.
