Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Yol. 6 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, APRIL, 1955 No.4 What Will It Profit Us to Repel Invasion of Formosa If Battle On the Home Front Is Lost? In the Yalta Papers Hiss Is the "Face on the Cutting Room Floor" There are said to be about five hundred thousand words in the Yalta papers as they came from the State Department, but what war~ ries us is how many were there before Alger Hiss was neatly censored out of the picture? We are not concerned about the watered-down version as finally released. We want to see the script before it was edited and before the city slicker diplomats blue-pencilled a leading actor out of a starring role Liberal columnists and radio commentators have been quick to inform a waiting world that these documents reveal that Alger Hiss pla:ved a minor part at the Crimean conference and they quote the State Department as intimating that he was a sort of glorified steno­grapher making notes of the proceedings for the record. This is not the fitst time Hiss has been played down. Ever since he traded his twenty thousand dollar job with the Carnegie Foundation for a number at the Lewisville penitentiary, franti(' nttcmpts have been made to erase his name from the . ages of "st · w · ) · clp d to make It hasn't been so long ago that the United Nalions sent out a SQuad of addle-brained female sneakers who convinced their guiiible audiences that Hiss' principal funciion at the first meeting of the United Nations at San Francisco was to make reservations and carry the lug­gage. Now the State Department puts in their two cents worth about his mission in Y-alta but at least they promoted him from a porter to a stenographer which shows he was on his way up in the world. If their performance in this matter is a fair sample of their subtlety and diplomacy in dealing with representatives of other nations, no wonder we no longer rate with world powers. It looks like some of them at least would have seen the incon­gruity, if not the downright comedy, involved in a situation where they take a man who has held six different high policy-making jobs in their own agency. to say nothing of Dumbarton Oaks, the United Nations and the London Conference, and put him to pounding a type· writer at Yalta. What happened to their sense of humor? At least we must give ustenographer" Hiss credit for exerting more influence than any other member of the profession so far, includ­ing those in Washington who were able to haul down pastel mink coats and vacations in expensive hotels, for knowing the right p80ple. Hiss is perhaps the first "stenographer" in history to be allowed in a locked room with two heads of State at a World Conference which was so super-secret that all other delegates were barred. He is also the first one, we believe, who was powerful enough to help decide in this super-secret conference how many votes one of the big world powers should have in a forthcoming world government set-up. and to get himself named at such super-secret conference as president general in the proposed one-world organization. He also broke all "stenographic" records, we believe. by being permitted to sign the official report of a world conference and for being high man on the totem pole in the matter of private telephones alloted to scores of delegates to the meeting and with listings according to rank when his phone was shown as number four, next to the thrE'e leading hertds of state. We think State Department officials could have thought for ten years without deciding on a more ridiculous title for Alger Hiss at Yalta. As Americans stand ready and willing to help beat back a potential Communist invasion of far-away islands~ a veritable army of pink professors in the National Edu­cation Association is engaged in an all-out battle for the teaching of Global Collectivism in the nation's public schools. In published documents for the guidance of local teachers, the Charter of the United Nations, UNESCO and foreign textbooks are suggested as basic reading for young Americans in furtherance of a planned program to stamp out every vestige of patriotism, national pride and loyalty in the hearts and minds of American school children. If the question were put squarely up to American parents as to whether or not they wanted their children to grow up to be like Joe Stalin, their reaction would be one of anger and shocked disbelief that any sane person should ask such a question. And yet, if they will take the trouble to find out what is goin~ on in higher educational circles, they will learn that if their loc~l schools are not using a textbook translated from Russian and called "1 Want To Be Like Stalin", that school is disregarding the advice o[ the National Educ ti .1\~Qciation. which o;U.t~mp-t.s. o supervise the curricula o American public schools and to which the majority of Am~ricun l::!nch­ers belong. NEA publishes scores of books, reports, tracts, pamphlets and other literature which is widely distributed to the teaching prf)fession and is placed on the shelves of libraries in the nation's public schools. "Education for International Understanding in American Schools" is one of the books pub1ished and distributed by the National Education Association at its headquarters in Washington, according to inform:ttion on the fly-leaf, and it is in this volume where the shocking reference to the Russian textbook is found. In an attempt to find out where American school children l{ct their ~<sentiments of patriotism for the United States" and to what extent such sentiments are influenced by "home, church, school, newspapers, holi­day observance, the flag and other symbols". the teacher is told to ask them: "What do you know about Russia"? When the child has answer­ed, the teacher is to follow up with the query: "Where did you learn that"? (Page 141) After this information is developed the teacher is instructed to introduce some such topic as: "What can be learned from mrthods of developing national patriotism as to means for building world-wide loyalties"? As an effective and subtle method of transferrin_g the loyalties of American school children from their own country to a one-world gov­ernment as embodied in the United Nations, this suggestion is made: "Many learning experiences can be developed if textbooks from other countries can be made available to United States students. Translations of textbooks used in the Soviet Union will be found in 'New Russia's Pdmer' and 'I want to be like Stalin". (Page 142) Equally unbelievable and shocking to those unfamiliar with the pattern. of infiltration vigorously carried on constantly by this top­bracket educational propaganda machine is the manner in which they propose that teachers shall erase the authentic facts of American history from the minds of pupils in the nation's public schools. "If history books used in England and Canada can be obtained, stu­dents in American history classes will find it of interest to compare those books with their own texts with respect to their treatment of the American Revolution and the War of 1812". (Page 142) In other words, the record of the glorious victory achieved by American patriots with the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown, o.;hould be erased from the pages of the nation's illustrious history. The story of the Revolutionary War whicQ. freed American Colon~ ists: from the despotism of British tyrants, launched a Republic dedicat­ed to human liberty on its shining course and ligl)ted the beacon fires of freedom for the victims of oppression all over the world, should be (Continued on Page Two) Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SO UTHERN CONS ERVATIVE Apdl, 1955 Henry Ford Didn't Have to Spend His Fifteen Million Dollars, or Did He? The American people have been betrayed times without number in recent years under the New Order in which our highest governing officials are captives of invisible masters, rather than free and inde­pendent representatives of the people who elected them. There has never been, however, a more flagrant, insolent and brazen example of deliberate disregard of American security or a more subservient truckling under to Communist forces than was displayed by the House of Representatives in Washington on March 23rd. This was in the adoption of what they called a "code of fair play" under which witnesses at investigations into Communism will be given a11 the breaks while the investigators will (ace every possible handicap which can be thrown up against them. Hereafter when the scum of the earth such as has paraded be­fore investigators heretofore and used the Fifth amendment to protect them from being tried for treason make their appearance, they will be the star performers in the show. They may bring their own attorneys, refuse to answer unless there are two or more members of the committee present, the investigator must tip his hand by announcing in advance what line his questioning is going to take, and the session must be closed to the public if there is to be anvthing developed which "may tend to defame, degrade or incriminate" the witness or damage his precious reputation before the public. Congressman Hardy of Virginia denounced the new rules as a procedure which will "hamstring every important investigation" and C"on{!ressman Keating of New York pointed out that, under these rules, the hel'lrings on Alger Hiss would have been forced behind closed doors and information concerning it withheld from the American people. The rule was voted on by the most cowardly procedure known to lawmakers and one which is invoked only when the member? are a<;hamed of some degradin!Z action they are about to take and don't want their constituants to know how they voted. They passed it by voice vote with no record made of each member's ballot. The Ford Foundation sometime ago set aside fifteen million dol­lars to be spent in Hinvestigating the investigators" of Communism in the Congress. We have nothing but contempt for the young Socialist squirt who ic; throwing away the millions his grandfather made, but we will say this for the flivver Socialist-he got the results he wanted without spendin{! his fifteen million dollars. Or did he? Quick! Somebody Brinp The Butterfly Net The people of the United States have become somewhat accustom­ed to the queer antics of William 0. Douglas who, for some reason not fathomable to a normal mind, was named some years ago as a Justice of the Supreme Court. His strange pilgrimages to out;. of-the-way places of the world where he has gone to live as a na­tive in search of "inspiration" have been recorded many times and his hitch-hiking and mountain-climb­ing stunts have been freely publi­cized.

He described the author of the book he was reviewing as having made this stirring transition 11as the result of eating curds in a bazaar." His own transition, he explains, came from eating a pot of "poori" on a station platform in the mys­terious East. 111t is usually some little thing like that that makes for the tran­sition" D.ouglas wrote and added: 14Whatever it may be, it opens the door to a new community; and that is the beginning of under­standing". And this, Heaven help us, is a man named to assist in the practi­cal and very mundane job of in­terpreting the provisions of the Constitution of the United States. McCarthy Is Proved Right in the Testimony of Stevens and Adams Testimony to the McClellan Committee of the Senate recently by Secretary of the Army Robert T. Stevens and Army counsel John G. Adams confirmed all the charges made by Senator Joseph R. McCarthy last year .. at a former hearing. Stevens admitted that informa­tion about Peress was withheld from the investigation in 1954 and Adams confessed to his part in covering up for Peress. While it is not generally be­lieved that these two persons are telling the whole truth even yet, and most people feel that the re­sponsibility for shielding the Com­munist Peress rests on higher au­thorities in government, the testi­mony of these two Army represen­tatives completely vindicates the senator from Wisconsin. And yet there has been no ad­mission from the small-bore poli­ticians in the Senate who voted to Looks like Peress will ran k along with Harry Bridges as one who is above the law. Americans are not only unable to get Per­ess' promotion and honorable dis­charge revoked but they can't even find out who pro-moted him. And while the Supreme Court can dictate to little helpless school children about their associates, they can't deport this Australian Communist, Hany Bridges. There is something mighty wrong with this picture. "censure him", that they made a miserable blunder in condemning him and since none of them are big enough to confess error and try to make amends, no action will probably be taken in that quarter. There have been some characters in the Defense Department in the past who constituted a serious threat to the security of the Amer­ican Reoublic but none more dan­gerous ·than Stevens and Adams who now admit, in effect. that they were playing cheap politics during the hearings last year and that the safety of the country was entirely disregarded in their sue~ cessful attempts to whitewash the Peress matter. Adams has been permitted to resign to save his face but both of them should have been forced out of their jobs. In the meantime, we will pro­bably never know who really pro• moted Peress. It's been several years now since William Z. Foster former of­ficial head of the Communist Party in this country was indicted, along with eleven other Commu .. nists, for attempts to overthrow the American government. The Department of Justice didn't try him with the others, because of ill health. but announced he would be tried later. It's a lot later·now but he still hasn't been tried. Why not? presented to American school children from the viewpoint of our enem y in that tragic and bloody conflict! Under the guise of advancing the cause of world peace-the sa~e fraudulent alibi employed by international Socialists to foist the United Nations on the world-this book devotes its 241 pages to subtle and under-handed attempts to discredit every tradition. custom and policy of this country subscribed to by Americans since the beginning of the Reoublic and to replace them with fuzzy and idealistic conceptions of a perfect one-world super-state in which all creeds, classes and cultures are one. While the volume is filled with sneering references to "patriotism that stops at the national frontiers", "irresponsible nationalism" as a threat to peace, the evils of an "excess of loyalty" and kindred tripe, there is not one line from the first to the last page to indicate that these self-appointed advisers of American teachers have suggested that school children be instructed in the basic principles laid down in such im­mortal and time-tested documents as the Declaration of Independence, the American Constitution or Bill of Rights. What the American people can do to prevent the complete de­moralization of their s;hildren's minds by these educational egg heads. hell-bent on destroying every vestige of loyalty, national pride and patriotism on the part of tomorrow's citizens, is a problem that demands serious and soul-searching deliberation by every responsible citizen whose indifference and apathy has permitted this tragic situation to build up. One thing is for sure; it is futile to look for the remedy in the Halls of Congress. The potential threat of the nation's organized teaching profession at the ballot box is so lethal that the most fearless investiga­ting committee that could be assembled in Washington would not touch the subject with a ten-foot pole. It is American parents themselves who must stem this subversive tide and stop this contamination of American public school systems before the infection gets out of hand. Like a cancer this dangerous on­American propaganda must be attacked at the roots which, in this case, means it must be halted at local school board level. American parents can't do anything about the National Education Association for it is a highly integrated and firmly entrenched group of professional internationalists financed in part by the large tax-ex­empt Foundations whose objectives also are to de-Americanize future citizens of this country and switch their loyalty to a one-world govern­ment. But parents can keep a sharp and careful watch on textbooks used in the schools their children attend and in the event of any deviation from accepted American methods of instruction, they can do as other outraged American parents have done and raise such a hue and cry that all citizens will be alerted and offending school officials will either be removed or forced to comply with American standards in their class room conduct. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Pagel Students Start Paper Future of Republic May Depend On Conversion of Devoted To Sound Organized Educators and Ministers to Americanism Mongrelization in Action in Korea American Principles Some young men at Southern Methodist University at Dallas have started a new publication "devoted to the preservation of Constitutional government and Christian Civiliza. tion" and which they hope will en· courngc students to take an informed and active interest in the aHairs o! government. The name of the publication is Op. Cit. which they explain is a biblio· graphy notation carrying with it the connotation that any fact can be sup· ported. Editor is William Mounts and Associate Editors arc Herbert Davis, Robert M'aloney and Cullen Rogers. l~othcir!irstedition,thcyeditorial· izc on current issues in a manner which proves that these lads do their own thinking and that attempts which about seven out of ten universities make to convet·t young Americans in­to Socialists, internationalists, and one-worldcrs, have failed in their case As they see it, the abandonment of Tachcns was a decisive victory for the Communists and insures the Io•s of more American lives than i! Chiang Kai-Shek had been allowed to retain those islands. They oppose the admission o{ Ha­waii to statehood for practical, sane and logical reasons which they enu­merate among them being the large Asian population of the islands, the heavy incidence of Communism there and the lack of congeniality between Oriental and American thinking. ThL•st· yOllflg Jncn havt• un cxtl·a­ordinaril: V fertile fi eld in which to disseminate their good, sound Amer­ican views and we wish them much We agree thoroughly with those who denounced Senator Matthew Neely of West Virginia for critic­ising the president's custom of going to church on Sunday. That is something that comes under the heading of personal and prtvate business and politicians who make a political issue of it are displa~J­ing extremely bad taste. Also, tn t1iew of the fact that Neely was attending a CIO convention at the time, makes his attack doubly of­fensive. He was in nQ position to criticise the rnomls of others so long as he was in such company. While buzzing around over Is­raeli, Eleanor Roosevelt stopped long enough to hold a press inter­view in which she made what is perhaps the undeTstatem.ent of all time: "If my husband had been living, I do not think he would have released the Yalta papers." Sister, you can bet your bottom dollar he wouldn't. The United Nations Economic Commission for Asia is holding a conference in Tokyo which news services say could bring demands for seating rnore Communists in the United Nations. It was predict­ed that Russia would, at this con­ference, demand the ousting of Soutl~ Korea. Formosa and South Vietnam from UN and their re­placement with North Korea, Red China and North Vietnam. We are all for the U. N. taking in Commu­nists until it is running over with them, getting out of it ourselve~ and kicking it out of tile country. Something over five years ago the Southern Conservative began publication and. during the intervening years since it was started we feel that we, along with scores of other pro-American individuals, groups. organizations and publications who have labored unceasingly toward the same end, have alerted millions of Americans to the threat to our Constitutional government posed by subversive forces, who were previously unaware of danger. Most of us in this classification have written and talked our hearts out in an effort to point out the conspiracy against the sovereignty and security of the United States planned by invisible master strategists and aided and abetted by highly placed officials in all three branches of the American government. We have emphasized acts of treason committed against this and other countries at Teheran, Yalta and Potsdam and at other internation­al conferences where accredited American diolomats have bowed to the iron will of Moscow gangsters; we have dwelt at length on the preval­ence of Communist spies in agencies of government and branches of the armed services securely protected from exposure throughout the years because of White House intervention in attempts to dislodge them; we have pointed up the perfidy of weak and dissolute leaders who, o\·er a glass of midnight bourbon. have called wars in which thousands of American boys were ordered to fight and die but not to win: we have reiterated the charees against Pearl Harbor plotters who influenced a war in Asia in obedience to instructions from Europe: we have protest­ed the surrender or the rights of sovereign states to a Socialized Federal government which. in turn, has surrendered them to a Socialist one­world government in New York; we have publicized the average American's inherent aversion to f!Overnment competition with private industry; we have chailenged the rieht of Coneress to impoverish Amerif'an taxnayers in order to send "Foreign Aid'' to double-crossers who rHvert it to the war chests of Moscow and Peiping; we have de­nlorcd the dissolution of both maior political parties into one identical Socialist Party; the usurpation of legislative authority by the executive and the judicial branches of qovernment and most despicable of all, the administration of the Federal government in the interest of bloc voters in minority groups. During the years of our publication we have been encouraged at times, discouraged at others but. above all. we have been awe-stricken at the clear, unmistakable nattern of treason interwoven into the fabric of American political, economic and social existence as revealed in thousands of authenticated reports, documents and records which we have been permitted to review. We think we reflect the sentiments of all in our classification when we say thal lhe future security and the preservation of the Republic is not .at all certain unless the defection of organized educators and or­ga~ u ~ed preachers can be halted, a~d these. powerful molders of public opmwn persuaded to renounce th eir alleg1ance to th eir international­ist masters and induced to enlist in the cause of Ameri canism.

In a pathetic interview with th<' press recently President Syngman Rhcc pictured North Korea as a virt­ual Red China Province, its population cut more than half by war and dis­case, its women forced to mnn·y Chinese soldiers. This information was brought to Rhee by refugees who swarmed into South Korea during and after Mr. Truman's "Police Action." Rhcc said that 4,000,000 Koreans have died of disease, hunger and bombings since the "Police Action" started. He told of ha~penings in North Ko­rea where land-owners have bt'cn killed or put in prison, their farms taken over by Chinese Communists, together with the farmer's widow, daughter or servant women who were taken along with the land. Koreans and Chinese are both Ori­entals but forced mongrelization be~ tween any two races is abhorrent, un­civilized and debasing. Our decision to defend Formosa is. in our opinion, tlte only honor­able conrse we could pursue. While we deplore our foreign policy which has involved 1(S in every argument and brawl around the world for twenty-two uears, there 1s nothing else to do in the case of Formosa. After all. it was our State Department that sold China out to the Com­munists and caused Chianq Kai­Sftek and his army to be exiled on Formosa and, in partial atonement for this great wrong. we owe the Generalissimo all the help he needs.

Compiled by Mrs. Mary Mitchell, reproduced by special permission by Educational Newl Service, Box 412, Fullerton, California, Copy­r ight 1955 by C.O.Garshwiler. Educators of Sound American Views Had Better "Stack" This Meeting On next November 28th, a White House Conference on Education will be held in Washington, D. C. The Committee for the White House Conference on Education which called the meeting announced that the Committee 11rcpresents diversified backgrounds, interests and views". The falsity of this claim is proved by the accompanying chart which shows the connection of Committee members with five groups closely identified with the movement for abolishment of the American free enterprise system, its replacement by a Socialist economy, state control of production and distribution and the surrender of American national sovereignty into a world organization. These groups are UNESCO, National Education Association, Na­tional Citizens Commission for the Public Schools, American Assembly (Arden House) and the Ford Foundation. J ust how "diversified" the "backgrounds, interests and views" of the Committee are may be judged by the interlocking activities of these five highly organized and well financed groups which dominate it. UNESCO is an off·shoot of the United Nations which serves as the propaganda arm of that body and which concent rates its attention on the "creation of world citizens". Since its initial meeting on September 23, 1946 when it was set up by a carefully selected clique of interna­tional Socialists, one-worlders and notorious Communist fronters, it has made unceasing attempts to infiltrate the pubilc school systems of the United States and brain·wash the students of all trace of loyalty to this country and its institutions. The National Education Association is an exclusive hierarchy of professional left-wing educators dedicated to the establishment of a New World Social Order which they openly propose to achieve through captur ing the minds of American school children and indoctri.na~ing them with the Socialist philosophy. Since 1946, one of the prmctpal roles of NEA has been plugging UNESCO as the educational and cul­tural monitor of pupils in American public schools. "We are in the beginning of a long process of breaking down the walls of national sovereignty" said a yeteran left·winger at the initial meeting of UNESCO and in its pubUshed literature, the NEA parroted right back: "The world-minded American knows that unlimited na-. tional sovereignty is a threat to world peace". (Page 13 Education for fnternational Understanding in American Schools) Under the guise of working for world peace NEA in its literature prepared for the American teaching profession, subtly stresses the evils of nationalism, "blind unquestioned assumption" that one's own country is right and points up the teacher's duty to re·shape the student's th ink­ing along the lines of world collectivism. Although the United Nations is upheld as a model governing agency and the reading of foreign textbooks is recommended, exten­sive research fails to turn up any publication by NEA which empha­sizes the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Inde­pendence as the basic documents for shaping an American student's thinking. The National Citizens Commission for the Public Schools is of exactly the same stripe and promotes the same Socialist propaganda as NEA. The American Assembly (Arden House) has been recently ex­posed as a propaganda factory where American industrialists are taken to be un·sold on American free enterprise and where the Flag of the United Nations flies over the building. The activities of the Ford Foundation in financing movements and individuals identified with the promotion of Socialism and its twin, Communism, was so fully set forth in the official report of the Reece Investigating Committee of Congress that no further comment is necessary. From this we can see just how "diversified" are the "background interests and views" which the Committee for the White House Con­ference on Education represents. We have made no attempts to show some of the unflattering affilia tions of some of the individual mem­bers of the Committee and have held this. discussion to their associa­tion with the five groups shown on the chart. The various States are asked to send representatives to this meet­ing in November and we hereby warn those responsible for naming these represen.tatives that if they leave the selection of these delegates up to professiOnal e_ducators who may be identified with NEA, the results could be tragtc for the future of American Education. Page6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE With So Little Judgment, How Did They Get· Where They Are? East land Replaces Jenner as Chairman of Senate Probe Group According to all rules of proce­dure which have prevailed for years in this country, Senator Wil­liam E. Jenner of Indiana should be the next highly-placed anti­Communist American to get the smear treatment. The anti-American propaganda on most television shows is dis­gustingly familiar to all but, un­fortunately, too few of us try to do anything about it. The least understandable part of this hog­wash is that beneficiaries of the great American system of free en­terprise arc the ones who finance these programs. A recent offering along this line was too much for one good Amer­ican, Dorothy Kassel of Fort Worth who, at all times~ knows what the score is and which side has the ba11 and so she let go at G. A .. Price, President of Westing­house, sponsor of the show. We don't see how this executive could help feeling just a little bit ;illy when it was called to his at­: ention that the Italian star on the lrogrnm was belittling a product which his own company is manu­' acturinJJ and selling to the Amer­can public. Miss Kassel's letter ~o11ows: Having watched "Studio One" for a long time with what t con­sider admirable restraint. I now fe£'1 compelled to comment on the play presented Monday, March 28th -"Dominique." As each scene unfolded, my an­ger grew deeper; for every bit of action carried its own little barbed retnark be1ittling Americans and America. For instance, when the little Italian bride went through customs, the two American inspec­tors were so crass, crude, and vul­garthatthcysimply could not ima­gine a girl wanting to use a lovely, old Floren tine comb when she could bu,v a shiny plas!ic one ~1t thc dimc stor<'; andsotheysuspectcd that nnive little creature of wanting to scll the comb and thought she shouldpaydutyonit. Next, the little Italian bride was unhappy with her new home-pati­ently described as one of m:my thousands in a housing project, one just like the othcr-because it con­tained just those new, shiny modern conveniences like washing ma­chines, but the rooms were not big enough to hold a huge, beautiful old Italian bed sent over from Italy. The irony of this part is that you nrc spending all that money to sell those "modern conveniences" to the very people ridiculed in this play. Then, the neighborhood-Ameri­cansuburbia- didnotlikethcnude statue sent !rom Ilaly, which had been placed in the front yard. The neighbor who came to complain out-Babbittcd Babbitt and put Sin­clair Lewis to shame. For he thought concrete ducks on a lawn were fine, buthewasfartoovulgar to appreciate the rare beauty of that statue. The children also showed their lack of culture by placing a plastic"spacchelmct''overthc nude Even the English language did not escape. The little doe-eyed Italian bride thought it harsh and ugly and cold. Amf'rican women were describE-d asgayandbrittleandsophisticated and the American girl in the play was immature enough to lie to her­sell about so simple a matter as be­ing in lO\'C with the wrong man. (This from the lips of the mature wise little Italian bride of 18 ten­der years.) Throughout, the little Italian bride was pictured as a rare and lovely figurine-who placed Jove and friendship and beauty above all; the Americans were shown in We Hope for the Best But Council Head Wants Will Keep Our Powder Dry No 'Boom and Bust' We have frequently pointed out how difficult it is to yank a bureau­crat loose from a Federal job once he has had a taste of living and operating at taxpayers' expense. In Religion Dr. Eugene Carson Blake, presi­dent of the National Council of Churches said in a television panel last month that a "boom in re­ligion" is not desirable unless there arc enough well-qualified ministers to "guide it". Dr. Blake apparently has been too busy in connection with af­fairs having to do with interna­tionalism and the building of one­world to do any straight thinking in lhe matter. He is talking about church at­tendance and not true religion which arc not necessarily related in these days. There are, in fact, many good Christians in this coun­try today who have been driven away from the church but who have not surrendered their re­ligion or their faith and who do their praying and their devotions without benefit of a minister to "guide them." We know one family who has changed churches three times within a year in an effort to find a minister who preaches the Gos­pel of Jesus Christ rather than the Social Gospel, and scores have ex­pressed to us their dissatisfaction with the new ideologies emanating from the pulpit. Dr. Blnkc is probably thinking in stock market terms where a "boom" is undesirable because it often leads to a "bust'' but this is not true in religion. We need all of that we can get and the more "boom'' in true religion the bet­ter for this poor beleaguered na­tion. We need it to offset the "Social Gospel" put out by Dr. Blake and his National Council of Churches. about thesamcguiseasyou would expect to find in the Marxist view of the "imperialistic, capitalistic country which thrives on greed." Now, Mr. Pr"icc, I like Italians; I like the French; and the English; and the Arabians; and thC' Siamese, Burmese, etc; BUT, I ALSO LIKE AMERICANS-better than any na­tionality you care to name. And I am unutterably sick and tired of the constant bcliltling that the American and his institutions re­ceive on TV and radio, in books and movies, on the stage; and in arti­cles. Why, then, do I watch TV and "Studio One'"! Because, as a politi­cal lecturer, I try to keep up with the "messages" slipped into all these media. My politics are ultra­conservative and can be explained in simple language-! believe in limited govemmcnt, the free en­terprise systcm, and the Constitu­tion o[ the United States o£ Amer­ica! I oppose any attempt to destroy these beliefs. It is my fit·m belief that plays such as "Dominique" nre just one moreofthcmyriad thrusts made at the armor o[ this country in trying to destroy our pride In our people and our country. They carry the message that Americans arc a pret­ty sorry lot and know very little It seems to get in their blood and when dislodged from one as­signment they bob up in a bigger and better one, always bouncing from one agency to another like a tennis ball or a hot check. In the cnse of Harold Stassen whose job as head of the World Community Chest expires next June 30, old techniques were aban­doned, old precedents cast aside and a brand new type of strategy employed to keep him from get~ ting the pink slip or missing a pay check. Since there were no jobs avail­able worthy of the Stassen t alent, the president just up and created one and blessed it with Cabinet rank. Like the ancient King who re­warded a faithful jester by pro­claiming him Exalted Custodian of the Royal Privy, the president designated Stassen as the Ambas­sador of Peace to all the world. This job may pay more but we fear it is going to be harder than the one he had. Anybody can spend or give away money when somebody else makes it and hands it over to him but the great Minnesota genius didn't always make good even at that. It is rcl ably reported that when the Premier of Iran told him they didn't want his money and wouldn't have it as a girt, Stassen was disconsolate and de­jecL ·d for days. That answer wasn't in the book and he didn't know what to do next. We wish him the best of luck in his new venture of disarming all nations and restoring peace to a troubled world and we are sure he will think up new and novel ways of bringing this <'bout. In the meantime, however, we are going to stay close to our trusty old musket and be ready to defend ourself because, in spite of Mr. Stassen's impressive job, we cannot yet visualize Chou En-Lai disbanding his army and returning to his peace time pursuit of ped­dling dope or Bulganin tripping down the front steps of the Krem­lin with an olive branch in his hand and a dove roosting on his head. about "goodness and beauty and brotherhood and peace and heaven knows what else." If you listened to those plays, you'd think all of America was just a_group of shal­low, crude, brittle feather-heads. Well, I disagree. Sure we 1ave crass and crude people in this coun­try. But Italy and France and Eng­land and the other countries all have their just quota of undesira­bles- and I think it far past the time when a few TV plays try to present the good side ot America and Americans. This may not do one bit o( good, but there comes a time when you just can't take any more of this stu[[; and ''Dom;niquc'' was the straw that broke the camel's back. Smear tactics are engaged in by well-financed organizations who do not hesitate to spend big money in discrediting any good American who interferes with the Soviet's apparatus in the United States. They have powerful support in high places, as well as unlimited funds, and their influence can even reach into the United States Sen­ate as was proved in the case of the attack on Senator Joseph R. McCarthy. Senator Jenner may escape the full treatment by the smear groups because he is no longer chairman of the Subcommittee of the Sen­ate Internal Security Commit~ce. t~e electorate having remov·ed h1m from the chairmanship, there­by saving Communist agents the trouble of attempting it. Senator James 0. Eastland of Mississippi who, on most occa­sions, performs \Vith courage and statesmanship, has become the new Chairman of the Committee. However. he voted to censure Senator McCarthy for his effective exposure of Communist spies which automatically entitles them to feel that they have nothing to fear from the Mississippi senator. We hope that time proves their hopes along this line to be entire­ly unfounded. Before his retirement as chair­man of the su bcommittee, Senator Jenner wound up hi s dut ies with the release of a press statement covering testimony to his commtt­tee concerning infiltration of 8,- 000,000 American soldiers during World War II, by Communists and Communist sympathizers in the American Army's own Informa~ tion and Educaiion Ser\'ice. Other subjects covered in his press release concerned Commu­nism in labor unions: influence of Alger Hiss, Harry Dexter White and their confederates on Amer­ican foreign policy: Communist radio operators in the American Navy with the full knowledge of President Roosevelt: the destruc­tion of Communist files in certain districts and the abolishment of anti-Communist units iH those dis­tricts and the general latitude the Soviets were allowed in their efforts to promote Communism in the United States, during World War !I.

Of course Mr. Morrow does not express it that way and he makes the process of converting a major political party which once stood for high principles into another version of the New Deal, sound like a virtuous undertaking. If he is right and the president is making the plans attributed to him, it will mean that the Social­ists will have the job all cut and dried for them and will be able to take over the elephant more easily even than .they subdued the donkey. In the meantime the only hope lies in the re-capture of the party by real Republicans who should be able to out-think the bumbling amateurs among White House ad­visers, who, we are led to believe by Morrow, are planning to sell the party out to the same interna­tional gang of one-world Socialists who were able to negotiate with Roosevelt f o r t h e Democratic Party. By real Republicans we mean, naturally, such Republicans as Senator Jenner, Welker. Malone, McCarthy, Dworshak, Mundt, Knowland, Bricker, Capehart.

In response to a letter from the World Council of Churches, 156 Fifth Avenue, New York, in which they solicited funds for that organiza­tion, Mr. B. Kesselheim, prominent business executive of Billings Mon­tana replied: "I am in receipt ot y ~n:r letter of February 24 soliciting funds and membership for your organization. I have made an extensive study of )OUr aclivities and frankly I, for one, will not contribute a dime. ';To explain: may I refer to the Con­grega ~ional Christian Journal ·Act­vance' of October 4, 1954 and parti­cularly on page 13 and in the middle section of the article 'Growing To­gether at Evcln!-lton' which conclu sive­ly approves inter-marriage?" "That is only one exampl ~ of your objectives and, of course it is all tied" in together with the notorious Rus­sian- atheist-controlled UnitPd Nati<.>ns and One-Worldism, all of which is for t.he purpose of sub.iugnting the U.S. A. to a world government and loss of its sovereignty. "I belive you will also find it true that there is a layman's revolt in the churches and you are assuming alto­gether too much authority in claim­ing that your Council re presents some thirty-five million members ol the Protestant churches.

It Failed But It Was A Ciood Try, Any Way A small prayer room with beau­tiful stained glass window has been opened in the national Cap­itol for silent meditation and pray­er by members of Congress. The pra.} er room was scheduled for opening at the time Congress convened on January 5th, but was delayed several weeks when it was found that a non-Christian symbol had been cunningly inter­woven in the design on the stain­ed glass window which had to be removed in the interest of main­taining a nondenominational de­cor in the chapel. The change was made, the cha­pel opened and the matter hushed up. Apparently no effort was made to place the responsibility for the insertion of the symbol in the pattern of the stained glass. An Example of N. E. A.

A. investi­gation. But now N. E. A. has found a school board it can praise. so it will be of interest to Houstonians to see what kind of a "climate of thinking" N. E. A. commends. IN THE JANUARY issue of its Defense Bulletin. N. E. A. had this to say: "A courageous stand bv the board of trustees of the Tamalpais Union High School District. Mill Val1ey. Cal., halted an effort to have certain books removed from library shelves on the allegation that they were subversive or obscene. "The board, after investigation into the background of those mak­in~ the attack (several of whom had used the same tactics elsewhere) and after studv of the books themselves. released a statement which cletlred the boOks of charges made and ordered that they be retained on the shelves." NOW LET'S SEE what the parents of that California community v.rere complainine: about. The objecting parents borrowed 15 books from the high school library and turned them over to the county grand iury. Two quotes were found especia11y obiectionablc in a book entitled "A Field of Broken Stones," by Lowell Naeve. One of the quotes is bv a man teJling in candid terms of women he has had relations with. The other is a quote containing some of the vilest words in the English lan­guage. A quote attributed to another book, "Emotional Problems of Liv­in, e:." by En15lish and Pearson, tells in raw, unvarnished terms of a father practicing incest and perversion on his own daupl,.ter. Another of the books. 41American ArJtument," by Pearl Buck and Eslanda Robeson (described as the wife of Paul Robeson), tells of learn­ing about sex from a prostitute. It is unlikely that Houston parents would want such books recom-mended to their children by having them placed in the school library. " Fortunately, they are not in th«;, H~us~on schools. THE COUNTY grand jury in the California community was shock­ed by the books and said so. The state representative from the area criticized having the books in the schools. But the school board's chief argument, apparently, was that the quotes had been taken out of con­text! Filth is filth, in or out of context. Vile sentences, creating equally vile mental images, aren't cleansed by any surrounding text. Yet N. E. A. chose to commend the school board for replacing the books in the school library. If that is the kind of thinking that N. E. A. represents, Houston parents want no part of it. Page 8 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Ambassador of World Peace Irving School Squabble Follows General Gets Off to A Bad Start Pattern of Similar Incidents Elsewhere The Ambassador of W or 1 d Peace, Mr. Harold Stassen, began his duties in the new job by en­gaging in a cat and dog fight with members of the McClellan sub­committee of the Senate which is­sued a subpoena for him to appear before them. Mr. Stassen's testimony it seems was wanted in connection with the building of a warehouse in Pakistan in which the contract was to be awarded to a builder whose bid was higher than all others by some hundred thousand do1lars, or some trifling sum like that. On the theory, perhaps. that even though a cat may look at a queen, a mere senator may not in­terrogate an Ambassador of World Peace, the Minnesota wonder blew his top and hit the ceiling. Striking out like a blind snake during Dog Days, he hit at every one on the committee including Senator McCarthy who had noth­ing to do with it and who had probably not even given him a thought. While his public exhibition nat­urally caused raised eye-brows, the epithets he used in describing the committee's action were the basis o( widespread comment. He charged that the committee was using "Hitler" tactics and em­ploying "Nazi" methods in calling him before it. What set tongues to wagging in our neck of the woods was the careful way in which he limited his descriptive terms of derision to "Hitler" and "Nazi" and didn't say a thing about 'Stalin" or ''Communism". 'Vhy docs Mr. Stassen hold one of these dead dictators in contempt and not the other? The Committee should have asked him that. Lay Members of Union Are Victims of Racketeers In any discussion we have ever made of the evil practices of labor unions, we have referred only to the racketeers who head them and not to the membership which, af­ter all, is composed of good, loyal and patriotic individuals on the whole. They are merely captives and victims of a vicious system over which they long ago lost control and, because Congress has neither the courage nor the desire to place the same legal restrictions on the unions to which other organized groups must conform, the mem· hers have to simply follow along and do as they are told in order to be allowed to make a living. Likewise the school teachers of the nation are, if left to their own devices, patriotic, conscientious citizens who love their country and its institutions and do not want to see it betrayed but, again, it is a question of making a living and they ha\·e to play along with professional internationalists and Socialists in the National Educa· • tion Asociation, or else. It is a sorry and degrading state of affairs which will never be corrected until, and unless, states· manship once more prevails in both Houses of the American Con· grcss. From n Snn Jose, California at· torney: "Your journalistic contri­butions ·mark a bright spot and chart a course in the present and future uncertainty and gloom .. " Last month we told of the incident in the small city of Irving, Texas, where the simple firing of the superintendent by the school board caused a "strike'' by more than a hundred school teachers and re~ suited in general pandemonium with the town split in two opposing fac~ tions. Since then a special election has been held which dissolved the school district at Irving and got rid of the board which fired the super­intendent. Another election has been called to restore the district and elect a new board, which sets some kind of a record in procedures having to do with the orderly carrying on of an American public school. In the meantime. many rumors have come out of Irving, many of which cannot be confirmed or disproved but it is clear that the affair there was stage·managed from the outside and that it is merely a repetition of similar incidents in North College HilL Ohio, Pasadena, California. Oglesby, Illinois. Syracuse, New York, Tenafly, New Jer· sey, Houston, Texas and other place~ where th.e National Education Association was able to stir up dissensiOn and stnfe. However, since NEA took such a beating at the hands ~f teachers, school administrators, school board members and parents m Houston when it barged in to rescue George Ebey whose contract was not re­newed, this educational GESTAPO has been careful not to meddle openly in local affairs and has operated under cover through their local contacts. The people of Oglesby. Illinois. still remember the frightening.ex~ periences they wffered at the handf; of goon squads. Tension ran htgh, families and friends were estranged and mass picketing. strikes and thrf"flt"' tore thP communi tv to shreds. ThC' schools were finally closed and NEA didn't call off the dogs until the dcmo.nds of its affiliated grou ns were met. Citizens of North Colles;e Hill. Ohio. have not for<:toftcn the hitler riots. the hatred and dissension which ras;ed when an NEA pf't orincipal did not get a contract renewal. Two conservative memhPrs o( the school board were phvsicallv mistreated durin~ a board mC'etin~. one o( whom required hosoitalization. Extreme left-wing membe-rs of the school board wPre able to force all others off the board and the demands of NEA nffiliotes were met in full. Other methods have been employed to intimidate local school board members and bring them to their knees. One is a threat that offending schools will not be accredited by the State Educational Or­ganization. In this connection, there is an interesting situation with respect to Texas. A former top member of the State Educational Agency is now president of NEA. A majority of American school teachers are loyal citizens. They abhor controversv. threats and violence and hate to be involved in these educational brawls orimed bv. the internationalists in the National Educational Association. But, like- the members of Labor Unions, there is not much they can do but io1low tlle leaders H lh want to hold their jobs. The Irving teachers who stayed on their jobs and refused to 11Strike" like stevadores on the waterfront, deserve the commendation of every thoughtful parent everywhere for trying to maintain the dignity of the school and keep cheap politics out of it. These teachers performed like Americans and put the welfare of the pupils above the "rule or ruin" policy of national professional educators. Meantime the presence of numerous strangers in Irving has been noted and the fact that many of them are known to be members of the ADA and CIO is an interesting development, since the objectives of these two "liberal" groups are recognized as being identical with those of NEA. In future editions we hope to be able to report the story in full as it unfolds and naturaily our earnest wish is that, in the meantime, the citizens of Irving wiii prove courageous and independent enough to throw any outside meddlers right out on their ear. That's the only kind of language they understand, as was proved in the case of Houston when they took to their heels and didn't come back. Administration Demands Roosevelt's Socialist Policy Be Made Permanent We cannot believe that the Amer­ican Congress will approve the United States entry into a new, per­manent international organization aimed at lowe-ring world trade bar­riers. Such aclion has been requested by the administration even though such a policy has been opposed by the Re­publican Party since its beginning. It is a plan conceived by inter­nationalists for making the Recipro­cal Trade Act a permanent policy of the American government, and for dismantling American industry as Senator Malone of Nevada has said on the floor of the Senate times without number. The proposal is to be called the Organization for Trade Cooperation and it is announced that it was drawn up after four months work in "closed door sessions'' at Geneva which is understandable because a full explanation of this operation could not bear the light of day itnd would be overwhelmingly rejected by the American people if fully publi­cized, and understood. It is proposed to be in the form ofasortofsuper-internationaltreaty and must be approved by two-thirds o[ the forty four countries involved. The Reciprocal Trade Act was set up by Roosevelt's Socialist one-world brain trust twenty years ago as one of his innumerable "Emergencies" and this Organization for Trade Co­operation woulJ make a permanent policy of an "emergency relief' measure. The only hope is that there are enough Americans with brains out­side the Congress who will demand of those who represent them thatthi! thing be repudiated. April, /955 Bishops Would Give Quemoy And Matsu to Communists So long as organized churchmen continue to make official pronoun~ cements favorable to Moscow and Peiping just so long will they con~ tinue to be charged with being sympathetic to Communism. Recently fourteen Protestant bishops, pastors and church edi· tors, all prominently identified with the National Council of Churches, petitioned the president not to undertake an "aU-out war" and not to use atomic bombs. If he did, the bishops warned him, this country would be exposed as uwanton aggressors." Everybody. except these mis· guided c'hurchmen, knows that this country has no intention of engag .. ing in "all-out war" if possible to avoid it and that the United States is certainly not a "wanton aggrcs· sor". In this appeal, the churchmen blithely suggested that Quemoy and Matsu be given to the Red Chinese and intimated that For~ mosa was not worth saving from Communism. The incident demonstrates aU over again how plastic the minds of these clerical babes-in-the-wood are and what drooling poppycock they can give utterance to when egged on by anti-American forces, as attested by their communication to the president which urges every concession that the Communists demand. So long as the organized Prot .. estant ministry seems determined to engage in extraneous activities instead of restricting its labors to the pulpit, it is very unfortunate for the American Republic and its institutions that they do not have the sympathy and support of this powerful group. 1nactive Brain Behind An Overworked longue The irresponsible, off.the-cuft babbling of Paul Butler, chairman of the National Democratic Com .. mittee, is said to be embarrassing even Fair Dealers who don't em .. barrass easily. The chief trouble with this ex .. trovert seems to be a lack of co .. ordination between his tongue and his brain which causes his vocal cords to operate freely with no corresponding support from his cerebral section. He's like the proverbial bull in a China shop and anything he can't break-he turns bottom s ide up. At a time when his party is pretending outwardly at least that it wants harmony within the ranks his conduct and utterances seem designed especially to widen the breach. • His impudent assertion that "when a Democrat steps out of line but comes back repentent, we'Il take him in" is not only infuriating to real Democrats but stresses the hopelessness of at­tempts to de-louse the party of Jefferson which has been domi .. nated for twenty years by such little Socia1istic squirts as he. Some newspapers made a lot out of the impressive ceremony when John MarshalL Harlan took the oath to support and defend the Constitution when taking his seat on the Supreme Court. As proof that this means less than nothing, we woulcl remind them. that all others on that Court have taken the same oath.
