Transcript THE- SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. b FORT WORTH, TEXAS, OCTOBER, 1955 No. ro Can A Federal Law Be Deliberately Utilized in Attempts · to Destroy American System of Government They Say McCarthy Is Through Does Anybody Want to Bet? Scores of pink peewees of the press in Washington are constantly cracking in their columns that Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin is through-washed up, finished. done for. Oh yeah? If this were the sincere belief of this scum of the journalistic cess pool. they would affirm it only once or twice and skip it. Since they chant it so insistently and monotonously, in season and out, they brand themselves in the eyes of informed persons as a weak, wavering and uncertain chorus o( pinkos vigorously whistling in,,.the dark to keep up their courage. Politicaily, McCarthy is d'ead they assure us again, ag~ and again and as evidence of his de­mise they point to the long period o! silence in the McCarth.y camp and the lack of publicity in the controlled press now being com­manded by the junior senator from the badger -state. , All right, wise guys. S~ Mc­Carthy is. silent and is not making the headhnes a!Jy moFe! But come Will Working Monkeys Organize Labor Union? A British scientist, Sir George Thomson, has come up with a pro­posal that, it adopted, might revolu­tionize the labor picture. Sir George h o 1 d s that monkeys should be trained and put to work to do many ot the chores in factories now performed by humans. He says that they have already proved their ability in Malaya where they do prac­tically all the fruit picking from high trees and have replaced -men in that field. Maybe it's a good idea and it is especially appealing when we con­sider the behavior of human workers on OCC<l$ions in calling strikes and endeavoring to Demoralize the orderly processes of industry in the United States. However, there is one drawback. When millions of monkeys go into action and become familiar with their various jobs some big smart ape will probably come crawling down from a tree in the jUngle and decide to organizc the Chimpanzee Interna­tional Union and demand more dates and cocoanuts as payment !or the monkeys. as well as shorter hours and incrca~cd social benefits. closer and let us whisper in your pink ear-and we do mean pink. So, also, is a volcano silent with a soundlessness that rivals the quiet serenity of a country grave­yard at midnight. Then out of the vast and muf­fled muteness, it suddenly erupts and belches forth a sea of molten lava that flows, spreads and des­troys all those in its path who so foolishly mistook its silence as in­dication of impotence, inertia and lack of action. McCarthy was "silenced" just before the 1954 Congressional elec­tions, remember? And the whole complexion of thal body w a s changed. And there are millions of Americans who are bull-head­ed enough to insist that this result was largely a rebuke to the party which so cruelly punished Mc­Carthy for resisting the Com­munist plot against his country. Only the stupid, the prejudiced and the politically inept will in­terpret McCarthy's silence as the end of his nationwide influence on the voters of the United States. As we go to press, another victory has been racked up for Sweden's Marxist, Gunnar Myr­dal, by the Texas Supreme Court's ruling that State funds may be used in schools where negro and white students are all jumbled up together. Rumor is that some members of the Court rebelled at making this concession to M o scow, Stockholm and the NAACP b~t other more "liberal" ·members were able, after almost a month's "persuasion", to whip them down to their knees, for a "un­animous" decision. Already, responsible Texans are expressing fear that illegal groups may spring back into existence following the inabil­ity of constituted authorities to courageously meet the chaJlenge to the Constitutional rights of Texans to handle their own in­ternal affairs In Texas. members" of the Supreme Court are elected. There is a heavy Negro vote in the State. An awesome number of organizations have long openly engaged in political action while, at the same time, accepting Federal. tax exemption under the guise of religious, char~ itable or educational bodies. The fact that an appalling num­ber of such organizations are headed and directed by per~ sons of recorded Communist front affiliations - while patri~ otic groups which have no such affiliations are repeatedly de­nied this exemption- has led to a widespread conviction that subversion, and not Americanism, is the deciding factor which influences the granting of this immunity from the pay­ment of taxes. Federal officials, members of Congress and taxpayers have long remained apathetic to a condition which has obviously screamed to high heaven for remedy. However, the recent flat denial of tax exemption to an or­ganization manned by some of the most respected and high~ ly~placed citizens of the Republic has started a chain reac­tion extending from coast to coast which promises the ex­posure and possible ending of a type of corrupt practice be­lieved without parallel in the administration of American government. tio~~.e ;~~~~ala;~·:;;o';ia~i~~; ofa~~~r~cf~o~!:J~;n;r;:~~~~/~~a~~~= poht1cal and non-profit activities the right to operate without payment of taxes into the F~deral coffers, was passed by Congress, of course, but the administration or this provision is handled by the Treasury Department. The decision as to which bodies are. or are not. entitled to tax exemp­tion is left to the interpretation and discretion of Treasury officials and there is rarely an appeal from their rulings. The .practice involving the favoring of left-wing organizations and discrimination against those of a conservative nature in the granting of tax immunity, was not inaugurated during the present administration. The policy of reward and punishment through the application of tax provisions was initiated during the Roosevelt regime but it is one of the many New Deal and Fair Deal "messes'' which has not been cleaned up and which continues to reflect discredit, if not downright dishonor, on an agency of the American government. The record of such large Foundations as Ford, Rockefeller and Car­negie who escape the payment of billions of dollars to the government on the ground that their functions are non-political (as they blithely go about subsidizing subversiv~ individuals and movements and hap­pily mixing into the politics not only of the United States but of the whole world) was so thoroughly exposed by the Reese committee of Congress as to need no emphasis here. The general public attitude seemed to be that with the Foundations' unlimited billions of ·dollars and their strangle hold on heads of gov­ernment throughout the earth, there was nothing much that COl!ld be done about it. However, with the strong odor of the tax-exempt Fund for the Republic, a Ford-endowed project, polluting the atmosphere as a result of Fulton Lewis' airing of the subject to his millions of listeners throughout the country, the Treasury Department picked the wrong time to flatly deny tax-exemption privileges to "Ft)r America, Inc." of Chicago which the Fund for the Republic has enjoyed from the begin-ning. _ Refusal .of the Treasury to grant tax-exemption to ''For America'' has Stirred violent and bitter protests throughout the country and has pointed up the policy of the Treasury to play favorites in applying a provision of the Fcdend tax law. In direct contrast to the Fund for the Republic. which is directed exclusively by those not only lenient to Communists but dedicated to the mission of stopping all investigation into subversion of any type. "For America" is headed by eminent American citizens whose reputa­tion for personal integrity and public probity cannot be assailed in any quarter. "For America"' has served notice on the Treasury that the ruling (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It Page2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVAT"IVE Ocfober, 1955 New Organization May Be Rallying Point For All Conservative Groups There are hundreds of patriotic organizations in the United States which have sprung up as subver­sive forces have t ightened their hold on the national economy but one is now shaping up in Tennes­see which may prove to b~ the ral~ lying point for conservative forces of the nation now exerting their energies and duplicating their ef .. forts from widely separated bases. This organization is the "Cam­paign for the 48 States" which has been in careful process of formation for many months but about which little publicity has so far been released. It has been the purpose of its founders to build quietly and carefully and on a solid foundation in order to bring into its councils substantial citi­zens of the Republic who tradi­tionally shy awaY from affiliation with groups of a promotional na­ture or those having to do with the fortunes of any particular candi­date for offi<:.'e. The objective of the Campaign for the 48 States is indicated by its slogan: "To bring government back home where it belongs". The plan, as visioned by those formu­lating the policies of the new or­ganization, is to ~irect it toward the "limitation of the centralized powers of government, in accord­ance with the Constitution, in or­der that the sovereignty of \the States and the freedom of the in­dividual can be maintained in our Republic of separate States." Its primary program as outlined a t preliminary organizational meetings deals with: The limita­tion of the power of Congress to tax ; The limitation of the power of Congress to spend; the decen­tralization of power and the res~ toration of the sovereignty of the ind:vidu:...l Ctates; The 1;ecovery and the protection of the freedom of the individual; The protection of the national sovereignty an~ the maintenance of the solvency of the nation. To accomplish these objectives, the ·organization plans to go through the State legislatures which have the authority, under the Constitution, to submit amend­ments to Congress for action. It is believed that governors and State legislative leaders, having noth­ing to lose, will be more amenable to suggestiot'is for restoring Con­stitutional go'O'ernment than mem­bers of Congress"'who seldom sur­render power unless forced to do so. The efforts of the Campaign for the 48 States will not be confined Human Mad Dogs Roam Streets of Strike Torn lndictna Town Walter Reuther's goons have reach­ed the bottom in depraved lulman be­havior during the current strike In New Castle, Indiana. Like a pack of mad dogs, the strik­ers ran wild in the streets of the town attacking non-strikers, peace oCficcrs and any one else who got in the way of the insane hOrde, until National Guardsmen had to be called out to protect life and property. Representing "labor's gains" since the day that Roosevelt first turned the reins of government over to union racketeers, they preserrted an example of anarchy and rebellion against law and order which will constitute a black mark against every member of Congress until that body takes firm and definite steps to curb the depre­dations of such t;ubarian¥ to their published objectives and the door will be left open for the the consideration of all problems having to do with the restoration of Constitutional government. Various organizations already in existence throughout the country will be invited to join with this group in a supreme and coordinat­ed effort to achieve their com­bined objectives. The headquaTters of the Cam­paign for the 48 States is in Mem­phis, with Robert B. Snowden, plantation owner and operator of Hughes, Araknsas, as chairman and who announced on accepting the assignment: "I am prepared to devote the next four years ex­clusively to this movE>ment with· out compensation. I wouldn't feel like lying down and dying with­out first having , made this one supremely honest effort in behalf of our country." Others who have either assisted in the formation of the organiza­tion or have agreed to serve on its national advisory council are per­sons known to be similarly motiv­ated by patriotic impulses. Included among them are Rob­ert B. Dresser, nationally-known attorney and lay statesman, Provi­dence, Rhode Island; General Bon· ner Fellers, Washington, :q. C.; J. H. Gipson, Sr. publisher, Caldwell, Idaho; George S. Benson, edu­cator, &earcy, Arkansas; T. Jeffer­son Coolidge, banker, Boston, Mas­sachusetts; Admiral Ben Moreell, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; J.

Legislation for Protection Of Gl' s Abroad Is Considered Legislation to protect American military personnel serving abroad is being prepared by the Defense De­partment for submission to Congress and it's about time: The AATO treaty which permits American service men to be tried by foreign courts is almost universally regarded by the American people as a blot on the honor of the country for casting its fighting men on the mercy ol foreign justice. The New York Lawyers Associa­tion is reported to have agitated the matter to such an extent that the de­fense Department has finally pre­par~ d a measure on which hearings will be held by the Armed Services Committee sooq after Congress meets in January. It looks !ike Minnesota stands ready to step in and save the country. Both Harold Stassen and Hubert Humphrey appear willing to make a great sacrifice and run for president. The yakkety-yak about the young Naval Academy graduate whose commission wq.s temporar­ily held up because of suspected Communist influence of his moth­er on his thinking, goes on and on. like Tennyson's brook. And those_ whcf are popping off the loudest didn't have a word to say when Peress, an admitted Commu­nist, was giv~ a promotion and honorably discharged. b~1 the Army. This was perfectly all right in the credo of the "liberals" who alwaYs believ-e in giving a suspect­ed subversive the benefit of the doubt even if it threatens the se· curity of the country. L_ We are indebted to our good friend, Mr. John Borden, of Spring Lake,, Michigan, for this gentle poke at Texans: A large airplane, carrying thirty passen­gers, was well out over the ocean when it began to lose altitude be­cause one engine had conked otit. The pilot had aU freight and lug­gage thrown out but the plane continued to lose altitude so he announced that four peison.J would have to jump out in order to save the lives of others. Where­upon, a Frenchman stepped up, said "Vive La France'' and jumped out. Next an Englishman said "God save the Queen" lt.nd Eddie and Debbie finally made plunged into the ocean. Then a it to the altar and if Princess Mar~ tall Texan got up, said uRemem- garet and her uGroup Captain" ber the Alamo'' and threw out can make the grade, maybe things two Mexicans. will get back to normal. Can A Federal Law Be Utilized • • • (Continued From Page 1) will be appealed and while the judicial thinking of those. who com~ pose our high courts is far from reassuring to t hose who cherish the ideal of the fair and impartial administr'ation of justice, at least the whole sordid matter of tax exemption grants may be aired for the enlightenment of the American people. Perhaps the most amazing and unbelievable aspect of the whole tax exemption picture is the revelation that extraneous bodies having no vestige of authority in the matter, openly admit collusion with the Treasury Department in the matter of who shall, or shall not, enjoy Federal tax immunity. We have before us, for instance, an expensive brochure put out by a powerful minority group in New York in 1951 whose members c?mprise scores of politically-powerful organizations in this country, mnety-nine per cent of which are granted tax-exemption. In this bro~ chure, the boast is made that this group was instrumental in having the tax exemption privileges of a small Foundation which did not adhere to liberal. left-wing or subversive policies, revoked by the Treasury Department. When a politically and financially-lethal minority group o( fanatic­ally liberal views is not only granted tax exemption for its several organizations without question but is able to prevent those of conserva­tive beliefs from receiving this same measure of immunity, it is Ion$( past time for the spotlight to be turned on in the dark corners and the taxpayers given a look at the official performances of their public t servants. Meantime, the American Legion has demanded that Congress go into the matter of the Fund for the Republic and thoroughly investigate the validity of its claim to tax exemption, in view of the nature of its various projects and grants of money. We have hammered away at the subject for years through the columns of the Southern Conservative and naturally the promise of action, fio matter how faint. is sweet music to our ears although the hope is somewhat tempered by our recognition of the sentiment which is sweeping high places for the suppression of all opposition to the continued spreading of Communist propaganda in the United States. Perhaps, in justice to officials of the Treasury Department. it should be conceded that a general misunderstanding may prevail in that divisiOi\ of the JZovernment concerning its functions and its responsi~ bility to serve all, and not a favored few, of the American people. It is more than posSible that-following a quarter century of the administration of government of, by and for minority groups, pinkos, liberals. left-wingers, Communist fronter s, one-worlders, international­ists and Qther assorted defenders of alien faiths-these officials may honestly regard it as their solemn duty to use the full resources of this Federal agency to put down any organized activity by plain Ameri .. cans who hold no claim to distinction other than their undeviating loyalty to their country and an unyielding determination to defend its institutions until Hell freezes over. Making charitable allowance for this probable misunderstanding on the part of Treasury officials is a Christian display of the tolerance Americans are constantly adjured to exercise. At the same time, to allow this distorted conception of a tax-supported government agency's functions to continue is to abdicate our inherent rights as citizens of a free Republic and to relinquish the sovereign power conferred on us as individuals by the Constitution of the United States. Officials of the Treasury Department-even as those in the Congress, th~ .su~reme C~urt, the White House and every other tax-supported ed1f1ce m Washmgton-are not supreme rulers wielding life and death power over abject and servile subjects, exercising the divine right of kings to confer special privileges on this or that fl;lvored group or rewarding and punishing lowly minions with a smile or a frown according to the whim· of the mighty occupant of an exalted throne. They are just plain public servants working for and paid by the taxpayers of the United States who have the same right to expect honesty, d~ligence and efiiciency in the performance of duty that is ~;~a~~=~~::~~~~se of the employment of a yard man, a cotton picker When discrimination and partiality is practiced by acciedited heads of Federal government agencies in dealing with the American people, so~ereign taxpaying employers should band together and demand in umson that these swell-headed hired hands either be whittled down to proper size or fired from the job.

When members of the United States Senate, in collusion with extreme liberals in the White House, the Pentagon and the Jus­tice DePartment, sabotaged the McCarthy investigation of Com­munists in 1954, it was accepted by subversives as a green light authorizing them to proceed with full steam ahead. As a result,_ responsible observ­ers note that subversive activity at this time is more widespread than at any time since Communism was .recognized as the number one menace in the Ur.ited States and excels in intensity that of the 1930's when it first became fash~ ionable for highly-placed Ameri~ cans to shack up with dirty Com­munist rats. Following the Flanders-Watkins debacle which threw the switch and cleared the track for subver- , sive action on a monumental scale, leaders of various movements with the mutual objective of peacefully overthrowing the American gov­ernment, began to correlate their forces for a massed attack against the internal security of the United States. As was fitting, the assault against American security meas­ures was led off by the Communist Party itself, whose representatives filed a brief with the Supreme Court asking that body to strike down the 1950 subversive activi­ties control law on the ground that the need for this legislation was non-existent because of the :~c;l?:S~ct!~~m~ls~~e::;;:~ "1 ~~~= ment that he felt Soviet leaders were "as sincere as he in their de­sire for peace" as justification for voiding this Taw. The brief also claimed, perhaps accurately. that the request was in line with the expressed views of Chief Justice Earl Warren. Spokesmen for the National Council of Churches and the American Education Association, always zealously concerned in the rights of Communists, follow~d with a protest to the Hennings Committee of the House against the "climate of fear" created by Congressional investigations of Communist infiltration of Ameri­c. an institutions, denounced the firing of Fifth Amendment Com­munists from their jobs and vio­lently condemned; loyalty oaths. Americans for Democratic Ac­tion have stepped up their peren~ nial protests against any measures designed for the protection and safety of the United States and r~­newed their plea for the right of Communists to spread Soviet pro­paganda in this country without interference by constituted au­thoritie~. Appearing before a Sen­ate Civil Service subcommittee, the national chairman -of ADA de­manded that persons charged with such activity be allowed to con­front their accusers and that all investigation into subversion be limited to persons in sensitive gov· ernment jobs. A HNationwide Lawyers Sur­vey" compOsed of 100 attorneys financed by the FOrd Foundation, with one Adam Yarmolinsky as spokes'man, issued a report on the government's security programs terming them Hwasteful, cruel, in· consistent and illogical."

So there, thanks to appeasers in the Senate, the White House, the Department of ,::rustice and the Pentagon, is an appalling program for subversive political action aimed at the very heart of Ameri­can internal security measures. Backed by millions of dollars and the influence of powerful figures in religious, edttcational and gov­ernmental circles and prosecuted with such force and vigor as to chill the hearts of~an responsible Americans, this murderous on­slaught against the national secur­ity by organized domestic enemies is traceable directly to the frame­up against the McCarthy commit-tee in 1954. • Perhaps the most blatant at­tempt to hoodwink the Amerisan people by leaders in the subver­sive activity now under way was the bold assertion in the brief 1o the Supreme Court, the appeal to the President and the Open Letter to the American People to the ef­fect that the signers of these docu­ments were uprominent Americans none of whom are Communists". Out of the total of 516 !~ted as signing the three petitions, . we give the names of a dozen as ex­amples of these "prominent Amer­icans none of whom are Com .. munists": Howard Fast, Rockwell Kent, W. E. D. DuBois, John Ho­ward Lawson1 James W, Ford, As confirmation of our conten­tion that, in the last analysis, the People are responsible for the state of the union, we are in re­ceipt of a letter from a member of Congress in which. among other things, he says: "I always think of my vote only as th(! rep~ resentative or ag_ent of my constit­uents at home. In Teillity, it is theiT vote that I am delegated to cast." This being true, it is the duty of good Americans to keep in constant touch with their rep­resentatives in the Congress and if they fail to vote in the best interests of the Republic to re­place them with one who will. Hugh De Lacey, Scott Nearing, Robert Morss ' Lovett, Georgia Harkness, Professor Harold C. Urey, Carey McWilliams and Au­brey Williams. They may not hold cards in the party but read reports on Un-American Activities .hear­ings and get their record, as well as that of many of the balance of the 516 signers. One of the signatures to the petitions represented a newcomer to the ranks and was probably added to give tone to the proceed­ings. He is a member of the United States Senate and his name is Pat­rick V. McNamara of Michigan. .A.s far as we know 1 this is the first time a member of that body has come out openly and allied himself with the anti-American contingent of our society although we have often felt that rntny of them properly belong there. Like it or not, this is the picture which now emerges as a result of acti<,m on that day of decision in 1954 when a majority of the mem­bers of the Senate r.ealized that their "honor" was tarnished and thought they could polish it up by passing a censure resoluti?n. Congressman Scherer compared the treatment of Fuchs witt\' that of Professor Wendell H. Furry who also appeared before the Un· American Activities Committee a year or so ago and boasted that he was a Communist but defied the Committee when he was asked to name his associates. Harvard Uni­versity, hotbed of Reds, where Furry was employed, refq.sed all suggestions that he be taken off the payroll and he kept his job. Congressman Scherer summed up the horrible situation in this statement: The contrasting action in these two cases would appear to inform future university wit· nesses before the committee that cooperation will lose them their jobs while contemptuous conduct will insure their continued em· ployment." While officials in Washington make token statements against Communism and confiscate bil· lions of dollars from taxpayers to give away to foreign countries "to keep such countries from adopting Communism," the universities in this country are turning out Com­munists by the hundreds of thous- ~~~~ ·~~~u~x~~tly nothing is being It has almost gotten to the point where an American youngster had better grow up in ignorance than to attend one of them. No Mystery · at All About Harry Cain's Behavior All the bafflement and amazement over the conduct of Harry P. Cain, former senator from the state of Washington, is, in our opinion, much ado about nothjng. Cain was generally regarded as i sound ancf contervative member ot the senate during his one term of of­fice but in recent months has started buddying up to Americans !or Demo­cratic Action, Civil Liberties Union and other notorious le!t-wingers and using !he Daily Worker approach in condemning security measures !or government employes. The role of turncoat has frequently been played by ambiQextrous politi­cians who, having no firm convictions to begin with, wer~ able to completely reverse themselves Without doing Violence to any inner sense of con­sistency and who have been known to make the switch as casually as they changed their shirt or their sox. C3in, for that matter, was a liberal to begin wMh until the senatorial bee bit him and Washington being a fairly conservative State at that time, it was easy for him to switch over, which he did and' got himself electzd by the betler element of the State. Having made one flip from liberal to conservative, it was no trick at all to flop back. Although the United Nations was alleged to have been set up to maintain peace throughout the world, only one-third of its budget is devoted to this purpose and of course no results Whatever have b~en achieved along this line. The other two-thirds is used in "social and economic projects" through­out the world, which was the act­ual reason for the establishment of the outfit. 1.,...

One of the most publicized pic­tures at the moment is uLove is a Many Splendored Thin.e:" and it is gettin~ a publicity build-up such as only Hollywood can engender when engaged in promoting a "cause." It is the case of an Eurasian woman who falls in "love" with an American and the whole burden of the thing is to prove that the world is wrong and that these -two characters whose emotions are a match for the heat of the South Pacific jungles are right. Incidenta1ly the thing works in a little on-the-side propa--ganda for the Chinese Communists while plugging for racial mixing, there­by killing two dirty birds witli one stone. Watch them work down to the black race next and get over the point they want to make.

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Conservatives of Texas Had Better Close Ranks or Else It is our earnest hope that the b1each in conservative ranks in Texas is healed io time to successfully defeat the left-wing element which is shelling the woods in an atl-out attempt to capture the governorship in 1956. While majority seniTment in Texas is definitely conservative, there is no doubt that the dismissal of Wright Morrow of Houston as Na­tional Committeeman has caused a rift which, so far, has not been bridged. Governor Allan Shivers' leadership is not disputed, his record for constructive achievement is not discounted and his personal popularity is beyond question but it is clear that somewhere down the chain of command, somebody fumbled the Morrow matter miserably. Many feel that there must have been some more diplomatic and subtle way to handle the affair than in summarily throwing out a man who had been guiJty of no greater offense than to incur the ill-will of the pin-headed chairman of the National Democratic Executive Committee. While Lieutenant Governor BewRamsey, chosen as Morrow's succes­sor, is highly regarded, his appointment is recognized as a concession to Paul Butler National Chairman of the Democratic Party who enjoys the same measure of esteem among responsible Texans as a rabies­infected polecat. While the State Democratic Committee has vigorously denied that there was any intention to placate Butler in the appointment, the fact remains that Ramsey voted for Adlai Stevenson in 1952 and that he phoned Sam Rayburn for approval ·oefore accepting the appointment of National Committeeman ail of which does definitely constitute a con­cession to Butler. The fact that Rayburn could not resist ,bragging about this phone call and broke t?Ut in the press with the information as soon as he hung up the receiver, didn't help any either. However, if the conservatives. of the State continue to harbor re­sentment in the matter. they will be foiiowing a very dangerous course and one which can easily lead to disaster. If they are not big enough to skip the unpleasant incident and cling together with ~he single purpose of electing a conservative governor they will be gu1lty of a grave error which the pinkos never make. The pinkos fight and then unite and do not carry their grievan~ces to the polls. Personally, we don't like the Morrow business either but we l ike even less the prospect .of the great State of Texas be ing governed b)! any one of the sorry specimens of humanity whom the liberals will put up. How De-Segregation Is Working Out in Washington the 'Model for the Nation' Right in the shadow of the Supreme Court Building in Washington from which was i!5sued the Swedish Socialist pronouncement condemn­ing white and colored children to mingle together in the intimacy of the class room, unspeakable and degrading conditions have sprung up which will forever shame the perpetrators of this crime against the nation's helpless children. In a letter to the Richmond, Virginia, Times~Dispatch, and which was reproduced in the Augusta. Georgia, Courier. the Secretary of the District of Columbia Public School Association. Gladyce G. Muse gave th is "agonizing reappraisal" of the picture as it applies in Washington, described by the President as the "Model for the Nation": "The white population in the District of Columbia public school& is declining: at a phenomenal rate. '.fhe first year of integrated schools reduced the white students to 39 percent of the total en­rollment, and indications are that this decline will continue. Among this 39 percent are children who live in an all-white residential area and who have felt no impact of integration whatsoever; while others are being subjected to unreasonable social changes which we do not believe are in effect anywhere else in the United States. ''Several citizens' associations in the District of Columbia are considering .e:oing to the lower Feder..al District Court to seek relief for little children who have been placed in the position of being a very small minority. In some schools three or four w.{lite children are in school with several hundred Negroes and all-Negro faculty. School authorities concede that the standards of edu.,cation for Negro schools are far below those of white, so that in addition to the emotional and sociological shock to these children, their educa­tion is actually being impaired. "One member of the D. C. school board who has consistently voted for compulsory speedy integration (but who does not submit his own children to these conditions), was asked by a reporter if he did not feel that some relief should be afforded these children. His reply: 'They are not captive children, they can move.' That is just what a very large perc£:ntage of the people of the District of Columbia are doing. The mass exodus to the suburbs in Maryland and Virginia is shaking the foundatitm of property valUes in the nation's capital. 1'The President of the United States has said he wanted the District of Columbia to serve as a model for the natiou in integrat­ing the pu.blic schools. If we can be said to be a model for anything, the expenence here should serve as a warning to the rest of the C«;luntry of what not to let happen to their community." October, 1955 A Statesman Who Thinks Straight and Hits Hard During all the messy kowtowing to Communists at Geneva, and the visiting back and forth with the Kremlin gang, there was one American who, as always; saw the whole fa rce in its true light. VVe are speaking of course of Senator Joe McCarthy who, in a brilliant speech to the Senate beg. ged that our leaders not be se~ duced by the blandishments of Commutiist propagandists. One excerpt from that speech will illustrate what we mean: uWhile I am on the subject, I think it is finally time to say a word about the relationship be­tween the President and Marshal Zhukov. If Dwight Eisenhower were a private citizen, his friend­ship with a Communist might be nobody's business but his own. But he is not. He is the President of the United States; and,-as such, ought to have a decent regard for ~~- ~~~~rv ~ra:i~a~~ub~~~m:fr: Eisenhower's wartime "buddy," a comrade in arms and al1 that; but it remains that 'he is a leading member of a ruthless cabal that holds one-third of the world's peo­ples in chains and that 'to boot' is determined to destroy the United States. It goes without say­ing that Marshal Zhukov would not be where he is today, did he not support Communism whole­heartedly and did he not possess the measure of deceit. treachery and brutality that qua1ifies for membership in the Communist high command. The argument ~%!ii~~~~~g~h;h~~~·l i~eish~~:e: nohsense; Zhukov is not going to tell the President anything the Communist leadership does not want him to knOw. Moreover. the sort of thing that Zhukov is likely to tell the President is the sort of thing the President should hear less of, not more. Before I am be­r~ ted for makiilg an issue of the Eisenhower - Zhukov relationship, let me ask those who would be­rate me what would they have sa i d and written had Franklin Roosevelt concluded a p a c t of mutual trust and friendship with, ~:~b~:l~~;nn Goering or Joseph Gossip Magazine Mailing Rights Upheld by Court A Federal judge in Washington has thrown out a Postof!ice DGPartment's ?,~o~fi;e~fi~l'~r~;oe~te~ci:l~c t~~1~~~;t~ ed through U.

No similar order was issued, as far as we know, to prevent the Daily Worker from using the United s.tates mails and that is extremely puzzling to us. In our opinion the articles appearing In "Confidontial'' may be obscene in a way. but those appearing in the Daily Worker are treasonable and are intended to con­tribute to the destruction of the American form of government. As between injuring t~c flimsy reputation of some Hollywood char­acters and detracting !rom the honor and glory of the United Stut<'s. we are afraid we would have to ·s<'ttle for "Confidential'.' Any way, the publication will con­tinue to be published and tran!<portcd through the mails and it looks like the only way out for movie people , who instituted the complaint is to be­have th~mselves in the future.

Any attempt, however, to label these Communist books in universities as "Communist" and therefore dan­gerous is met with a howl on the part of educational authorities that re­sounds to high heaven and brings in­variably the charge of "violation of academic freedom."

All Our Fears Concerning The President's Commission on Education Are Now Allayed For a long time we have been despondent over the President's Commission on Education which is scheduled to meet in Washington in November. Our despondency was occasioned by our fear that left~wingers, one­worlders, UNESCOers, and even Communists would dominate the meeting. But we have now abandoned all our fears and are convinced that the meeting will be in safe hands and that all the problems of educa­tion will be solved in accordance with 'the Constitution and in con­formity with traditional principles in American educatiorial proce­dure. The reason for our jubilation is a small article we saw way back on the last pa~e of our local paper. Joe Lash, Eleanor's boy friend, is ROing to be there. He is going to represent a youth group whose title we have forgot­ten but the important thing is that he is going to be present. The usurpation of power by agencies of government is con­tagious. The Supreme Court has been taking on authority not be­longing to it for a long time now and the Atomic Energy Commis­sion is following suit. Recently the AEC issued an order that whites and Negroes must go to the same school in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. If these agencies -are not curbed in the'ir grab for pow­er not rightfully belonging to them, soon Americans will not be permitted ·to perform any inti­mate function without a permit from ·washington. Of course there are several things against Joe's recCU'd such as the following: At a meeting of the Sub~Com­mittee to Jnvestigate the Adminis­tration of Internal Security Act, William E: Jenner, chairman, in 1954 in NeW Orleans, Paul Crouch, a former Communist, testified that Joe was known personally to him as one of the five individual Com­munists who were assigned by the Communist Party to obtain intel­ligence information from the White House for the benefit of the Com­munist Party and the Soviet Gov­ernment. Crouch itlentified Joe as a mem­ber of the Communist Party and Hon. Martin Dies, in the U. S. News and World Report, also said that Joe was a Communist, but Eleanor said he wasn't and of course no dependel)ce can be put in any statement by Dies and Crouch if ~t r.onflicts with any~ thing Eleanor says. Anyway, Joe is going to be pres­ent at the President's Conference on Education and while we didn't know he cou}d either read or speak the English language, we are delighted that he is going to be present. We know, with Joe pres­en~. that Americanism will pre­vall and that there is nothing to fear from subversives. We join with all the good peo­ple of the world in rejoicing t1wt the Argentine is apparently going to have Constitutional govern­ment ·restored in that unhappy and strife-torn country. However, our real concern is in seeing it restored in the United States. ---- - -- In One Case at Least We Favor The Re-Distribution of Wealth We are about to become an ad~ persons who surround and advise vocate of the "share-the~wealth them seem to be of thC same stripe school qf thought, at least in one as those administering the Fund instance. for the Republic and when the The reason for this complete new bequest was analyzed, it was change in our line of thinking is found that it carried provisions the Ford Family.

If ifou have just sent your son .or daughter away to a "li&eral'' university w i t h o u t preparing them for the ~ommunist propa­ganda that will be crammed into their heads, you have failed both as a parent and as an American_: 1 A lot has been said pro and con ! on the case of Cadet Landy whose ' Comm~ssion in the Navy was held ' up, but finally granted, because 1 his mother was once a member of ; the Communist Party.

Like the Protestant churches, the Catholic church, to a lesser degree, has also suffered infiltration of Communist ideologies into its ranks. However, the inspired message of the Rt. Rev. William C. McGrath, one of the greatest aud soundest thinkers of that faith in modern times, and which is being widely circulated throughout the United States, and Canada, is expected to largely overcome much of the damage that has been done and to revise the thinking of those who have been luke­warm to the Communist menace. From the Brooklyn Tablet, we repro-duce Bishop McGrath's remarks in p~ ____ _ Ten years more, that's about all! Fifteen, maybe, at the outside! By then the Reds will have taken over America. No war. No hydrogen bombs. No mass slaughter- till a!ter the victory has been won. The coup d'etat, in course of ac­complishment even while you are reading these lines, will be engineered to final success by the entrenched and untouchable traitors in high places, aidCd and abetted by their strategically placed cohorts in the nerve centers of the Nation. The men who sold 500,000,000 Chi­nese into Communist slavery will finally betray America. The saboteurs who ordered ignominious defeat in Korea will at last achieve the utter destruction of the nation that has long stood between Russia's Communist leaders and a bloody Communist wor!d. It will be the fulfillment of the prophecy made by Lenin in 1923: ''First we wiiJ take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia, then we will encircle the United States, which will be the last bastion of Capital­ism. We will not have to attack. It wilt fall like an overripe fruit into our hands." Who are these traitors? In what key spots are they located right now? Apparently we are not _to know until it is too late. It is worse than useless, it is military or political suicide for any individual to attt'mpt to track them down. For the end :is ever the same; character assassina­tion, disgrace or death. From Pattbn to Forrestal to Wede­meyer; from MacArthur to Lawton to McCarthy our shores are Jittered with broken men, among them some of the greatest Americans of our generation. McCarthy came nearest to success. He was "dangerously" close to pay dirt in his attempt to unearth the mysterious forces avowed to encom­pass our destruction. That was why his disgrace had be­come an absolute necessity and would serve as a deterrent to the McClel­lans and Jenners and J. Edgar Hoov­ers who might be stupid enough to continue this expose of treason. That was why a petition -against. his censure, signed by 10,000,000 Americans was brazenly ignored. Public opinion must not be per­mitted to count any more, as witness the treatment accorded General Mac­ArU1Ur who was given the greatest public acclaim ever tendered to any­body ln the history of the Country and is now the forgotten man. This grim prospect for America was given to us in strictest confidence by two outstanding experts on Commu­nis'.: tactics of subversion and whose names I may not reveal. They are firmly convinced that the Nation is doomed; that nothing really effective is being done or can be done to arrest the progress of the great betrayal. Ten to 1!5 yea rs they say, before the massacres in the streets and convents aqd churches and seminaries; before the brain-washing and diabol­ical torti.J're and the boatloads of brok­en humans heading northwards to­wards Siberia and death. In China, since its "liberation" by the Communists, 15,000,000 innocent people have been done to death. But in China, a Red officer recently told a departing missionary, they were not cruel enough. "We wm be 100 times as cruel when we take over America." Not only will this verdict of the experts not be generally accepted but it is virtually impossible today to convince people as a whole that Amer­ica is even Jn danger. So long have we been inoculated and anaestlsed with subtle, soporific party-line slogans about peace" and security and "co-existence" that "the soul within us has died"; the mere thought of resistance, even to the menace ot Communist enslavement, has come to be regarded as a sort of treason to a peace-loving world. North America today comprises in ~=r P~~u~~tl~~ ~e~~~Wst~~a:7i~!n~~~t lambs ready - "eager," one would be tempted to say at times - to be led to the Communist slaughterbouse. Let anybody advocate a strong stand against Communist aggression and immediately there i9 a hue and cry of "warmonger." We must be "realistic" about the present last stand of freedom in Asia. Pay any price, for another "cease fire" anywhere on earth, even the price of handing the whole of Asia over to Red dorriination. See to it that there never will be any further attempt to liberate the .Chinese mainland. Eliminate the trou­blesome Chiang Kai-shek. Bottle him up forever on Formosa or for that matter in exile and make use of the mighty U.S. Seventh Fleet to ensure the surrender of some of his vital off-shore islands. Invite the murderers of priests and Sisters and American uniformed men to the conference table and welcome them as "respected" members of the United Nations. Condone. Appease. Pretend. But above aH torever surrender. Peace in our time, wherever we've hehrd that before. Bury your head in the sand while Russia enslaves the rest of the world and hope- oh, just Somehow - that it cannot happen :tere.••• I have heard Bishop Cuthbert O'Gara discuss this subject at length. He is distressed and deeply disturbed over the failure of people in this Country to recognize the danger of. the Communist threat. And Bishop O'Gara knows all about Communism from first-hand experience. For he spent 24 months in solitary confine­ment in China in an old hut located between a pigsty and a latrine. • • • "The people of the United States" he stated, "do not appreciate the mag­nitude of defeat the West has suf­fered since 1945. "It is incredible that such a small group of pro-Communist pscud"o-in­tellcduals should have effected in so short a time one of the greatest turn­overs in the history of mankind." Bishop O'Gara said that this defeat could not be blamed on stupidity but had been deliberately and cold-blood­edly'enginecred. "No group of Americans," he said, "could be that stupid. The deliberate throwing away of victory after World War ][ is confirmed by the whole list of 'stupidities' since VJ day. And these stupidities are still going on. Someone is s!l ll directinr the sell­l) ut."•• Tru]y -whom the gods wish to de­stroy they first make mad. We were deeply flattered when a small newspaper in Georgia re­cently came out with three editor­ials from the Southern Conserva~ tive reproduced in their entir ety. We would have been even more flattered if our paper had been given credit instead of having them presented as that editor's own offering. The editorials were "Powerful Potential Force which could change the Course of History", HThey not only spread Red Propa­ganda but Gonorrhea" and "What Price Glory or Who Dropped the Fr?g in the Tomato Aspic". We are always flighly pleased when our editorials are reproduced by any publication but we don't particularly enjoy having them "swiped". After all, we don't have any~ody to think up things for us. Shame on Andrew Mellon for Ruining Harry's Business Although he was deadly serious a screamingly funny remark was that by Harry Truman in his me­moirs in which he claimed that Andrew Mellon, Secretary of the Treasury in the 1920's, was re­sponsible for the ex-president's failure as a haberdasher in St. Louis. While it would be natural for a man of Truman's mold to hold in low regard a person of Andrew Mellon's stature, it would seem that some one--even his proof­reader- should have pled with him not to make a ludicrous charge such as t his. During the time he was Secre­tary of the Treasury, Andrew Mel­lon limited the amount levied against American taxpayers to twenty-five per cent. Under this policy, known as the Mellon Plan, the average annual revenue from incomes paid in to the Treasury during the six-year period from 1927 to 1932, with a 25 per cent maximum rate, was $88,981,890.- 15. From 1932 to 1938, after the maximum tax . rate jumped back up to seventy-nine per cent, the average annual revenue from in­comes paid into the Treasury was $725,277,386.15. The Mellon Plan was hailed by sound economists as a policy which provided incentive to business ex­pansion, gave relief to small tax­payers and constituted a formula for the successful operation of his affairs by the average American which enabled him to provide for his own social security. But high-tax Harry says 'taint so and points to his failure as a pyjama peddler to prove it. The l itt1e man from Indepen­dence has set a new fashion it1 alibis. Verne P. Kaub, president of the American Council of Chris­tian Laymen of Mad'ison, Wiscon­sin, does not believe it is entire­ly the fault of libraries and their managements that their shelves are stocked with subversive books, which frankly present the collectivist philosophy. uB o o k s presenting a true American view­point are hard to come by," Mr. Kaub says and points out that only small publishers will turn out books by patriotic Americans. Averill Harriman, ideological black sheep of a prominent American !am­Hy, has been given time on radio and television for a "Report to the Peo­ple" as governor of the st..1.te of New York. The Republicans, in keeping with accepted policy in such matters, h:~.ve demanded equal time on th ~ air but a National Broadcasting Company vice president has refused on the ground that Harriman's "reports" are f~:t ~i~~~c~;rr~~a::~se~~:~:d:~~!~0r~ nor, he is not a candidate for any oUice. This confirms what we have al­ways heard about NBC vice presi­dents. Post Is Quite Attractive On the Outside at Least The Saturday Evening Post has a new make-up and is a publication~ whose appearance ranks at the top among American magazines. The Post has always been very popular in the South and that area has contributed largely to the vast wealth of the Curtis Publishing Com­pany which has enabled the expan­sion and beautification of the Post. Unfortunately, however, the Post is b~coming more and more insulting to the South in its editorial racial views and never seems to overlook an opportunity to discredit th~ views of the people of Dixie. Their writers cannot discuss even a United States Senator from the South without mak­ing him appear as a buffoon totally out of tune with advanced "social thinking" but they can take a charac­ter like Sherman Adams and present him as a cross between Calvin Cool­idge, George Washington and King Solomon. The outside ol the Post js extreme­ly attractive but a clean-up ot its inside content and the elimination of so many left-wing writers would seem to us to bemoreinorder. This Would Be Much Too Much An Associated Press dispatch...._ from Paris September 29th quoted a Western diplomat, who refused to let his name be used, as say­ing that the Kremlin leaders are extremely worried for fear that President Eisenhower may step down from leadership, following his illness, and let some one else take over. This Western diplomat said that in talks with Kremlin leaders Bul­ganin, Krushchev and Molotov, they had referred to Eisenhower as the usame sort of a friend they had in Franklin D. Roosevelt." Let us hope and pray that the Kremlin gang is mistaken and that there is no similarity in their rela­tions to the President comparable "1, to their influence on the man who gave us Teheran and Yalta. That would, indeed, be the fin­ishing touch . Latest propaganda to come out of Russia is· that Soviet leaders are allowing the people there to build ancf own their homes. Boy, that is mighty white of them, and no doubt witt evoke additional praise from soft-headed liberals in this country concerning the "new look" on Kruschev's puss. A Three-Time Loser Gets The Limit for His Crimes Originally appearing in the Wall Street Journal, this round by round report of a modern public enemy has been widely circulated by the Moody and Thomas Milling Company of Shelby, Ohio· Farmers have paid some $5,- 000,000 in fines to the federal gov­ernment for growing more than the law allows. So the black-robed judge mounts his bench of a morning and calls the· case of Joe Doe. Judge: "What is the charge against this man?" • District Attorney: "He has been growing wheat, Your Honor." Judge: "Growing wheat. eh. Let's see. Doe, haven't you been up here on the same charge be­fore ?'' Doe : ''Twice, Your Honor. You sec, I have a flock of chickens and I grow wheat to feed them. My father did the same thing for .years and when we grow our own feed we produce chickens and eggs cheaper th::m when we have to,.buy feed. I know they say that is against the law but I just can't believe it." Judge: "Wen, you better believe it. You are a third offender and you come up here citing your fath­er. Now there's your neighbor, Richard Roe. He used to grow wheat but he stopped." Doc: "Yes, I know, Your Honor, but Roe lost his farm and had to go on relief. That was another thing father taught us-never to rely on other people for our liv­ing." Judge: "Your father, again. He had an old-fashioned point of view. I hope you are bringing your own children up in better fashion. There is enough juvenile delin­quency now." District Attorney: " I wish to correct the record. Richard Roe is not on relief. He is now a govern­ment inspector. In fact he was the one. who fer reted out what Mr. Doe was doing." Doe (mumbling): "Father al­ways said they were a bad lot." Judge: "This man keeps talking about his fa th.er. It seems almost a mania." Doe: "Well , someone is crazy." Judge: "Doe, you are fined $100 for growing wheat and $1,000 for contempt of court." Adlai Can't Say We Didn't Warn Him During the Conference of Gov­ernors in Chicago in August, Aver­ill Harriman posed lovingly for pictures with Adlai Stevenson and flooded the press with interviews vowing eternal support of Adlai for president. In our September edition, with our usual cynical interpretation of politicians' behavior, we warned that Harriman didn't mean a word of what he said and that he was promoting his own campaign for that office even then On October 9th, Harriman, right out of a clear sky and apropos of nothing:, announced to the Asso­ciated Press that he had "no obli­gation" and was not "morally bound" to support Stevenson at the National Democratic Com•en­tion next year. The incident proves nothing much except that while there may be honor among ordinary thieves this quality does not prevail among politicians who are itching for the same job. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE We Present A Member of the Myrdal Family the Supreme Court Overlooked Since the U. S. Supreme Court has set up Gunnar Myrdal, Swedish Marxist, as final authority for their decisions affecting the intimate affairs of the American people, we respectfully offer them a construc­tive suggestion. There is another member of the Myrdal fami ly who is also adept at proposing u nique social customs and this is Gunnar's wife, Dr. Alva Myrdal. Also, she is as prominent in the field of "social science" as her old man and unless the Supreme Court proceeds to put some of her theories irtto practice, we protest that they are discriminating against the lair sex. Dr. Alva Myrdal, for instance, is a big shot in UNESCO and author of a chapter in the notorious Volume XI of "Towards World Under­standing" series, which will curl the hair of a bald-headed man. This Volume XI put out by UNESCO has been heavily deleted and some of the rankest obscenity removed but there is enough salacious matter left to provide spicy reading for some rainy afternoon and we suggest that each member of the Court curl up in bed with a copy. The Myrdal woman goes in for re-arranging family relationships and when she gets through , they Will sure know that they have been " re-arranged" in a big way .. In comparison , Gunnar's " integrated" schools arc minor league stuff. Children must not only be well fed and physically healthy, she says, but they must be emotionally nourished. This means they must be reared in happy homes "where the environment offers plentiful op­portunity for the varied experimentation called 'play' ; where age mates appear on the scene precisely when needed; where sexual ex­periences occur in an automatic harmony equally beneficial to all who share in them". (We are merely quoting what the Myrdal dame says. We do not pretend to understand what she is talking about' and must leave that to interpretation by members of the Court.) But it is her program for bringirig up children in broken homes, however, where she really goes to town and "incomplete families" are her special dish. She says that the disruption of a home is so common that 1t warrants particular attention. Her idea of a "disrupted home" is one where the !ather loses his job. dies. runs off with a blonde or neglects the little detail of marrying the mother and she has a remedy guaranteed to give satisfaction in any case. She proposes that family homes be ~et up on a collectivist basis com­posed of any widows, widowers, ·orphans, spinsters and unwed mothers who are lying around loose. By thus combining remnants of "incom­plete families" into a "complete family" the opportunity is presented " to form sibling groups among the children and find parent ·substitutes among the adults". It would, she promises, "produce positive effects as practical arran6_!ements become easier, household relations more man­ifold, emotional ties less possessive, and prospects for a carefree atmos­phere greater." Her purpose in proposing the happy mixing in the same sleeping quarters of unmarried members of both sexes, she claims, is to make people "quit criticising social conditions and help adapt them to human needs". As a good Socialist, Gunnar naturally believes in sharing the wealth bul it turns out that his better-half is much more liberal and is str~ngly in favor of sharing everything. At th is point we retire blushing from the scene, but first we respect­fully urge that the next time members of the Court feel the need to consult the Myrdal fam ily, they pass up Gunnar and latch on to his old lady who is guar anteed to give them their money's worth in the way of novel and startling innovations in social behavior of the, human race. On page 48 of Jet, a Negro mag- Thomas Jefferson in the long azine, September 8. 1955, appears, ago warned the nation not to trust without apology or expression of !~s~~~=~si1~~~!fn;~~n1h!hC:J~~= shame, this description of the be- tion."

Cohan in 1917 as being especial­ly appropriate today: Last night as I lay sleeping, a wonderful dream came to me; I saw Uncle Sammy weeping for his children over the sea; They had come to him friendless and starving, when From a tyrant's oppression they' fled, But now they abuse and revile him, till at last in jUst anger he said: If you don't like your Uncle Sammy, then go back to your home o'er the sea; To the land from where you came, whatever be its name; But don't be ungrateful to me! If you don't like the stars in Old Glory, If you don't like the Red, White and Blue, Then don't act like the cur in the story,· don't bite the hand that's feeding you. October, 1955 'Known Enemy in the Open Better Than False Friend in Ambush' Combined efforts of ]eft-wing columnists, pollsters and other professional political dopesters to further the illusion that the Pres­ident is as popular with the people now as in 1952 has assumed pro­portions of one of tht! most aggres­sive propaganda campaigns in his­tory. The A.eptiblican national chair­man even went so far as to predict thatt should the President run for re-election, he would carry the same States in the South that he did in 1952. We don't claim to be any shakes as a polit ical analyst but we can r ead. During the past three years we have had thousands of letters from citizens in Southern States and, without exception, the writer expressed regret for having voted the Republican ticket in the mis­taken belief that they were get­ting a change. Many of them voiced the opinion that if they had voted for Stevenson, they would have known what they were get­ting and would have remained on their toes instead of going back to sleep with the delusion that all was well. So we'll go along with the find­ings of Human Events, the highly interesting and usually accurate weekly publication of editorial opinion edited by Frank Chodorov and his informed and alert associ­ates and which said in its August 27th edition in referring to the likelihood of the Republicans n~~di1~1g 1~~~: Conservative vote i~ "The Dewey faction argues that 1the conservative wing has no­where else to go' but a Taft-Re­publican in these two States (New York and New Jersey) is hoping to prove differently with this mes­sage: 1To all good Republicans: A known enemy in the open is bet­ter than a false friend in ambush. In 1956, defeat Eisenhower even if you elect Stevenson'". Chief "Adviser" Becomes Part-Time President The Constitution is very spccilic in saying that the Vice President of the United States shall act in the event of "the death or other Constitutional dis-ability of the president." · All the hullaballoo about "delega­ti. on of power" following the pr~!Sl­dent's illness would, therefore, seem to have been unnecessary and out of order - that is if the Constitution still mean.s anything The matter was finally resolved by some one deciding that the Vice Pres­ident should hold forth in Washington and Sherman Adams take over the "Summer White House" in Denver, although. we couldn't find a word in the Constitution about "advisers" hav­ing authority to assume the oUice in the event of the president's disability Thl're is no doubt that Mr. Adams has the complete confidence of the President, but that he is very un­popular with the rank and file ol the American people, cannot be disputed.
