Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE' -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 8 FORT WORTH. TEXAS. SEPTEMBER. 1957 No.9 Violent Hatred of White South Is Back of Civil Rights Legislation Data Which Committee Seeks Was Compiled 166 Years Ago A special committee appointed by the President composed of seven Federal officials including three Cabinet nlembers, and ten Governors has gone into action to assemble information which th&- President has requested. . The special task which the President has assigned the Committee is to find out and let him know the functions which the Federal gov­ernment should perform and those which the several States should discharge. - We hope it does not come as too much of a shock to the Commit­tee and to the President but we have news for them. This job was done 166 years ago and by men who knew what they were doing. · The whole subject is covered in t his terse, compact paragraph known as t he Tenth Amendment to the Constitut ion or the Bill ot R ights and saY"s: ~~T h e powers not delegated to the United States by the Con­stit ution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." It is as simple as that, although the Committee will p robably go ahead and engage in long, rambling, and boring sessions and employ thousands of ambiguous terms, p hrases and expressions in saying what American statesmen said in twenty-eight words more than a century and a hal! ago. Instead of travelling long distances and making unnecessary trips to attend wind-Jamming sessions and listening to Modern•Republicans and Fair Deal Democrats spout off their Socialistic views, the Chairman of th is Committee could, instead, carefully study the Tenth Amendment and after he has thoroughly digested it, make a copy and send it to the President for his information, and that would be that. The total cost of the whole operation would be the price of a three­cent stamp. Joint Meeting of Notable Americans To Be Held in Fort Worth and Dallas One of the largest gatherings o! responsible American citizens vi­tally concerned in the worsening State of the Union ever to assem­ble since the abandonment of Con­stitutional government in the United States is planned for Fort Worth on September 20. The affair will be in the nature of a joint series of meetings both in Fort Worth and in Dallas with Texans for America, the Texas Division of the national · For America group, as the host. Featured speakers will be the Honorable J. Bracken Lee, former Governor of Utah who will make t he principal address at Fort Worth on the night of the 20 at Will Rogers Auditorium. The Honorable Clarence Manion and General Bonner Fellers w i 11 address a similar gathering in Dal­las at the Adolphus Hotel on the 19th, fo llowing a business meeting of For America during the morn­ing and afternoon in that cJty. Other nationally known organi­zations coogerating with the Fort Worth meeting &z.!.d who are ex­pected to have representatives present are the Federation for Constitutional Government, Cam-t~ i~~ci~~~ ~~~y48A!t:;~s;n CL~~~~~ posts, civic groups and others. At intervals during the two-day session in Fort Worth and Dallas conferences will be held by the National Policy Committee of For (Contin ued on Page 2) If you are a Communi~t vigorously working for the overthrow of the American government, you are a fa­vored citizen because the Supreme Court has made your task easier by removing obstacles in your path; If you are an underworld criminal, your status in society has been lifted 1o a level with that of prosecuting attor­neys since that same Court has held that you, too, are entitled to examine files of the FBI although subsequent legislation has made it slightly more d ifficult for y•u obtain t his data; If you are a Negro, you are the Num· ber One concern of the leaders of both majo r parties because of the widely-prevalent belief that you hold the balance of power in the forthcoming elections; If, however, you are merely a White Southerner, God help you because you are low man on the economic totem pole, the perennial target of every political crook in the country with a yen to be President and you have no rights which the Congress, the Supreme Court or the White House are bound to respect. Your standing with the three branches of the Federal government is on a par with that of o_Mexican wet-back and your influence in your national Party conventions, in directing legis­lative action or in shaping domestic policies of govern­ment parallels that ' of a migront pea-p icker. In other words, you've had it. When Robert E. Lee laid down arms at Appomattox on that April day in 1865, the myth was born that the S6uth thereby attained equal status in the Union of States and that by- this surrender there was cre­ated "one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." The venom and the spleen of the North, however, was too strong to be restrained and during Reconstruction Days it was vented against t he defenseless South in every devious and diabolic manner which the degenerate minds of depraved carpetbaggers could conceive. Then, as now, their hatred, prejudice and fury found-its fullest measure of sa tis· faction in elevating Negroes to superior position and in otherwise sub· jecting White Southerners to humiliation and insult almost beyond t he capacity of a proud people to bear. In the years that fo llowed, the South fought its way back and eventually regained much of its lost political equality through th& adoption of the two-thirds rule in nominating candidates for President in the conventions of the Democratic Party which dominated the South at that time and whose emasculated and ghostly image still claims the allegiance of an overwhelming majority of the voters of Dixie. The second betrayal of the Southern people was accomplished at the Democratic National Convention at PhiladelPhia in 1936 at the peak of New Deal prestige when a pompous and sWell-headed counter­par t of Thaddeus Stevens named Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered the p011tiral knock-out blow to the South by demanding that spineless delegates to the Convention repeal the two-thirds rule. This they did without argument or protest, and once again the South became a political orphan of the storm. Since that time, Southern followers of the formerly great Party of Jefferson and Jackson have functioned largely as voiceless robots and have been compelled to stand by as impotent spectators at National Conventions with the alternative of either quitting the Party or sup· porting candidates whose ch ief recommendation for high office lay in the fact that they had never been convicted of a crime or sentenced to a term in the penitentiary.

Credit for this properly belongs to Mr. Earl Warren, Ri :hard NixQn, William Knowland, Jacob Javitts, Emanuel Celler and others of their Jlk who have taken up the campaign of hatred initiated by the Soviets and have done everything within their p ower to stir up strife and bitterness between the races in the South, just as Communist agitators hoped they would do.

Joint Meeting (Continued from Page 1) America in regard to future plans and programs of that group. Dan Smoot, one of Texas' fa~or­ite adopted sons will be master of ceremonies at the Fort Worth meeting and the overall program is under the direction of J. Evetts Haley nationally known educator, ranchman and tireless crusader for a return of Constitutional Government. · If every American does not come down with u AsiatiC'jlu~> dur­ing the coming winter 1 it won't be the fau!t of a highly organized campaign being carried on by somebody through the press and other communications mediums. This propaganda is terfible psy­chology but is a good argument for mass medication. Fulton Lewis, Jr., has revealed that Harold Stassen, the adminis­tration's perpetual square peg {1\ a round hole, is spending $560 of Americp.n taxpayers' money per week for a plush house in London complete with butler, maids and everything. He has occupied this house for eight months while he proposes disarmament to the Rus­sians who aren't paying the slight­est attention to what he says. Ap­parently he is in a contest with the man from the State Depart­ment who has been in Geneva in a two-year conference with the Chine3e Reds over the release of American prisoners of war - none of whom have been released a3 a result -of the Geneva talkafest. We are sure our diplomats and roving ambassadors are good for some­thing but nobody knows just what. Violent Hatred of White South (Continued from Page 1) Although so-called Democrats are now in control of both Houses of Congress and, by reason of seniority, a Southerner is allegedly the "majority leader" it is largely a courtesy title like that of a Kentucky Colonel and no leadership is exerted beyond a few compromising and horse-trading gestures and when the chips are down and the vote is taken, the South wins the skirmishes but the North wins the battles. As concrete evidence, when hate-mongers in the inner circle of Modern Republicanism hatched up the dastardly Civil Rights bill with the double objective of slapping down the White South and, at the same time, providing a vehicle in which one of their number might ride to the White House, rank and file adherents of the c:;astrated Democratic Party fell in line like duck pins in a bowling alley. Instead of standing together as a unit to defeat this obvious strategy1 they joined with Republicans to deal another lethal blow to the South. And, apparently operating on the time-worn political axiom that "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" the great "majority leader" went over to the enemy and voted for the bill. Some leadership when the ~'leader" not only cannot influence his fellow Democrats but can't even control himself and votes with the opposition. The majority of staunch Southerners in both the House and Senate pr_oved loyal to their trust and fought to the last ditch in a vain effort to defeat the vilest and most hate-ridden legislative measure ever conceived by distorted minds and, of course, voted against it on final passage. A handful of spurious Southern Democrats, went through the motions of opposing the bill during consideration but voted for it on final passage possibly in the hope that' some of the credit for its enact­ment might rub off on them when, and if, the Soviet Negro Republic of the South is set up as planned in Moscow, and goes into full operation. Although some of the most despicable features of the bill were re­moved in the Senate, the measure finally passed is dangerous, vile and indefensible. The right of trial by Jury provision was first omitted in the House, put in by the Senate and in the compromise was eliminat­ed again, for all practical purposes and only a few jumbled words, without sense or meaning were retained in the finished product. Attest­ing to its viciousness, provision is made for a Civil Rights Commission in the Department of Justice as a sort of glorified Gestapo and already suggestions have been made in the press that certain Negroes will be named to this Commission and, naturally and appropriately, the ones mentioned have long Communist-front records. The attorney general may send his Storm Troopers into the South not only when the "right to vote" of some Negro has been violated but when the attorney general "thinks" this "right" is going to be violated, thereby setting up the precedent of a legislative act which provides for the punishment of a citizen before he commits a crime. The Civil Rights bill is the result which accrues when the thinking of a nation's top leaders is done by alien minds and its policies enunci­ated in voices which are thick with a foreign accent. The tragedy is magnified when it is considered that in the United States we have no Supreme Court in the ethical meaning of the term to which the measure may be submitted for a judicial review on an unbiased and Constitu~ tional basis. One of the great'est deterrents to a Communist-controlled One­World government is admitted to be the American Union of individual and independent States with their rights and sovereignty intact. The Civil Rights bill was intended to, and does, go a long way in destroying the concept of a Federation of Sovereign States, a consummation de­voutly desired by the Soviets. To evaluate the actual intents of the measure, one has only to consider the section of the bill referred to as the "bayonet" provision which was taken out in the Senate after the Reds in that body fought valiantly to retain it. In one of the most under-handed and treacherous acts against a segment of the citizenship ever indulged in by an official of the American government, the attorney general resurrected a for-gotten Civil War statute which would have permitted the sending of Federal troops into the South to beat the people into submission to integration of the schools. When this provision which had been sneaked into the bill was exposed and its implications understood, even some of the most rabid proponents of Civil Rights legislation suffered acute nausea and voted against it. At any rate, South-haters, with the full backing of the Soviet, have put over their Civil Rights bill and it should be interesting, even though revolting, to see what the next step will be toward complete Federal subjugation of the States in clearing the way for One-World Govern­ment to which the United States is being committed by leaps and bounds. lt the American people as a whole had considered it worth while to inform themselves concerning matters of government instead of calmly sleeping during the past twenty-five years of treason, their rep­resentatives in Washington, whether from North1 South, East or West, would not have dared endanger the structure of the Republic by weak­ening the sovereignty of the States composing it as was done in the Civil Rights fiasco. In the first place, there was no such thing as a "negro problem" i.!l .the South until it was artificially created in Moscow to stir up and agitate racial trouble for the advancement of their cause in this country and was seized on by low-grade politicians in Washington who have been riding the issue ever since. There may have been instances in the South where Negroes have been intimidated into staying away from the polls but, if so, the cases have been few and far between. On the other hand, there is no pro­vision in tbe Civil Rights bill to ta.ke care Of the situation in New York where, according to equally reliable reports, thousands upon thousands of imported Puerto Ricans are hustled from one voting box to another on election day and cast a ballot in every precinct they visit. Certainly there is just as much inJustice and violation of the "civil rights" of the general public involved in a case where a minority group member is permitted to vote a dozen times for the same candidate in the same election as there is in one where he is not allowed to vote at all. In the second place, there is no such thing as a "right to vote" in the American Republic. Under our form of government, neither white nor black citizens automatically enjoy such a "right." Casting a ballot is a privilege conferred on the citizen in return for certain concessions on his part such as his readiness to bear arms in defense of his country and to comply ~ith certain qualifications set up by the several States in statutes govermng their elections. The "right to vote" term is, there­fore, jus~ as phony as the crocodile tears of the cheap-skate politicians in Washrngton who wept all over the place about a 11right" that does not exist. In the third place, not one of those who raved and tore his hair ~;[el~h~o~~~;~~i~~t:h~i~el~~~~n~h~f ~~~~~!~! ~~:~~n~r i~a:;;:~:i h~ppens to the.m.

A group of "historians, lawyers and authors" of Boston are report­ed in the press as having appealed to the State of Massachusetts to commute the death sentence of a couple of anarchists named Sacco and Vanzetti for a pay-roll hold-up murder. If their plea is granted, we are afraid it is not going to do the two anarchists much good since they were both electrocuted in the A Federal Court has come to the rescue of another Negro rapist who killed his victim in the pro­cess and has set aside a death sentence imposed against him in a lower Court.

Are We to Let Tiny Minority Dictate Atheism to Country? (Houston Chronicle) and schools simply to please them. In Edgewater Park, N.J., some 400 The so-called separation of church pupih in two schools had recited this and state amendment has been twist­prayer before leaving the classroom ed far beyond anything intended by for lunch: the framers of the Constitution. "God is great, God is good, and we thank Him for this food "By His hand we all are fed. Thank Thee for our daily bread." A couple of citizens protested to the school board that this prayer vio­lated the law separating church and state. The school board ordered the prayer discontinued, whereupon a pe­tition signed by more than 600 citi­zens protesting the ban was sent to the board. The board ordered the prayer re­instated, but the attorney general ruled that under existing laws in New J ersey, prayer.9 before meals are il4 legal. He promised, however, to sub­mit to the next session of the legis­lature a bill allowing grace and other nonsectarian invocations in school. This is just another example of the length to which a small minority has gone in attempting to eliminate God :from public affairs, and· it is amazing how the great majority of the citizemt who are believers have allowed them­set ves to be_ pushed around by this insignificant minority. This .country was established by praying people and the men directing its destiny In time of peril have been praying people. Citizens who are try­ing to turn our government into an atheistic system are un-American and it is high time that the believing ma~ jority so labels them and puts them in their place. It they want to llve in a godless countr.y, Russia l! open to them, but there Is no reason why the rest of us should put up with an atheistic philosophy In government Article I says Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exer­cise thereof. A person of normal men­tality would consider that to mean what it says, namely, that Congress shall not set up a special church to be favored over other churches and sup­ported by the government. That is far from saying that the government may not recognize . its dependence upon the Supreme Being and may not allow its citizens in public institutions to InvOke His aid and recognize His In the basic document outlining the beliefs of the founding fathers it is proclaimed that the rights we enjoy were ~onferred upon us by our Cre­ator; and recognition of a Supreme Being is what has set the American government otf from various other forms of government which attempt­ed to explain the source of man's righl9 a! the state or agreement e.mong the citizens. They were smart enough to realize that anything the state or citizens granted could be ~revoked by them, but what Almighty God ga~e could be taken away only 'by Him and since He does not chang& there is no possibility of the rights He conferred being revoked, It is high time the believers assert­ed themselves and quit taking an apol oget1c, defeatist attitude toward an insignificant group, making up perhaps ~ of 1 per cent of the popu­lation, that seems determined to bring to this country the corroding atheism that has wrecked Russia and every Criminal attacks by Negroes on white women is on the upsurge in all parts of the nation. Only those who get newspapers from various parts of the country realize the extent of this crime wave because the national news services either ignore the various cases or play them down. In San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, and other cities where there is a lafge population of Negroes, it is almost becoming more than her life is worth for a white woman to ven­ture out after dark. Students of Negro psychology are not surprised at this, of course. With all the attention that has been showered on their race and the preferred treatment by vote­hungry politicians which has been extended them, it is inevitable that individual Negroes see in all the hullabaloo a license to do their worst. Southerners are the only per­sons who knoW how to treat Ne­groes to keep them in line and now that others who know nothing of Negro mentality have taken over, it is only natural that the greatest Negro crime wave in history should be sweeping the nation. fhey'll Do It Every Time P aul Butler , Chairman of the National Democratic Executive Committee has named Dr. John Kenneth Galbraith , professor of economics at Harvard University, as chairman of the advisory com· m ittee on economic policy of the Democratic Advisory Council. Galbraith was a member of the old National Citizens Political Ac­tion Committee back in the days when everything had to be "clear­ed" with Sidney Hillman. This organization was identified by the Dies Committee as "the major ob­jective Communist front organiza­tion of the moment. As a front organization, it represents the Communist Party's supreme bid for power throughout its 25 years of existence in th is country." (Ap­pendix IX, page 261). It was also revealed in Appendix IX that that Galbraith resigned his post as deputy O~A administrator after he was accused before a Congressional investigating com­mittee of being a radical theorist whose policies were seriously hurting business. The Advisory Council of the Democratic Party to which Gal­braith has been appointed was created to uhelp formulate party programs." There is nothing surprising or newsworthy in the appointment as the selection of such persons other country that has adopted such a philosophy. This country was establiShed, de­veloped and defended' by believing, God-fearing people. The great majority of our citizens United Nations was a great organiza. tion which would render a service to all nations commensurate with the vast sum of money it is costing the taxpayers of the United States. So far, we have seen no evidence of this great service until recently when an incident occurred which perhaps explains the value of this organiza­ticn to a certain segment of the peo· pie of the world at least. On August 8, according to the As~ sociated Press correspondent in Cairo, local authorities there intercepted a speeding car which was trying to cross the Suez Canal into Egypt. In the car were two non-commissioned officers of the United Nations Emer­gency Force and the vehicle carried the UNEF insignia. When the officers of the law ar• rested the UNEF officials and search~ ed the car they found it loaded with narcotics which accounted for the high speed. Now while there may be some doubt a.!l to the quality of "service" invo1v~ ed when an agency of the U. N. goes into the dope-running business, there Is· no question that these U. N. offi'­cials were transporting a much-need~ ed product from a base of supply to some very anxious consumers of that product in another country. And who is there to say that re­distributing narcotics from. the place where there is an over-supply to the under-privileged who are sho rt on this product, is not good economics in the bright one-world we are build­Ing? -All the minerals of the United States needed in war are, under rec­ognized U. N. procedure, being re­distributed to other nations of the world who may use them to blow us to Kingdom Come one of these days, all of which has the sanction of United States officials. So long as a "share~alike" policy seems to be accepted as good eco­nomics, we see no reason why the United Nations should not toss all the world's opium into one pot and dole it out to those in short supply, as they seem to be doing in the case of the Egyptian escapade. Whittaker Chambers, author, journalist, and principal witness in the triaL of Alger Hiss, will re­sume his career as a joUrnalist. Mr. Chambers has joined the staff of National Review, 211 East 37th Street, New York, a weekly jour~ nal of conservative opinion edited by WilHam F. Buckley, Jr. for important jobs is routine with both major political parties. It merely points up the futility of any hope for a return to Cori~ stitutional Government in the United States so long as both par­ties continue to be dominated by persons associated with groups committed to the overthrow of the American government. today are that kind of people. They are foolish to let themselves be dictated to by a lunatic fringe of frus­trated malcontents preaching a pliilos· ophy that has wrecked every country that has adopted it.

Wisconsin Voters Choose The Least of Two Evils The best thought in Wisconsin is that the recent election of Wil­liam Proxmire to occupy the seat in the United States Senate made vacant by the death of the Honor­able Joe McCarthy, was a direct slap at the President and Modern Republicanism. Off-hand it seems a pretty stiff price to pay for the privilege of getting even with the White House for the shabby treatment accorded Wisconsin's beloved fighing states­man but a comparison of the two candidates would prove there is little difference between them. Proxmire is regarded as a little .to the left of Wayne Morse and a little to the right of Karl Marx and the sympathy of all respon­sible Americans goes otrt to a State which must accept such rep· resentation. On the other hand, Walter J. Kohler, his opponent was no bet­ter. He is a "Modern Republican" and made his campaign on that -issue. It was a good chance to &how what they thought of Eisen­hower and his "Modern Republi­canism" and apparently the people of Wisconsin could not resist reg­istering their contempt.

The Governor of Arknsas, act­Ing in accord with his rights under the Tenth Amendment to the Con­stitution, proclaimed that the pub­lic schools of Little Rock would remain segregated as heretofore whereupon a 1ackleg Federal judge from North Dakota barged into that city and took over. In short order, he set aside the Governor's proclamation calling for continued segregation, revers­ed a State Court injunction for­bidding the mixing of the races in Little Rock and enjoined the Mothers League of that city from interfering with school mongreli­zation plans. Although North Dakota has only 257 Negroes, according to the lat­est census figures, and Arkansas has over a half million, this im­ported judge who had been sent in by Washington to !:,eplace a re­tired official of the Arkansas bench, disregarded a potentially dangerous situation and, with no knowledge, understanding or sym­pathy concerning local conditions proceeded to dispense justice ac­cording to his own warped stand· ards. Whatever violence results from this brash outsider's Gestapo methods will be directly traceable to him and to the gang of political ruffians in Washington who are determined to corral the Negro vote, even if it means bloodshed throughout the South.

We Are Supposed to Overlook Inconsistency Ohhe Reds Those who deny the right of Cit­izens' Councils and other respect­able American organizations to op­pose Communist-approved rulings of the Supreme Court, such as that on segre_gation, didn't utter a word of protest several years ago when the NAACP started its Moscow-planned campaign on the other side of the issue. For instance, when segregation was "the law of the land" (as the Reds fondly classify this Supreme Court segregation ruling) the NAACP constantly made attacks on it and tried to tear down and destroy this "law of the land" and finally succeeded. But none of the professional evangels of mongrelization raised a hand then to prevent this NAACP activity or reminded its leaders that segregation had been decreed by the Supreme Court and was, therefore, the "law of the land." Instead, they supported this outfit in its attempts to over­throw the "law of the land." Now, when decent and self­respecting men and women in Citizens' Councils and other good American groups oppose integra­tion and strive equally hard to thwart it because they consider it immoral and indefensible, the Reds howl to high heaven that they are tr.ying to overthrow the ulaw of the land." And so responsible and right­thinking Southerners are expect­ed to overlook this rank incon­sistency and bow meekly to an obnoxious way of life which Mos­cow and Washington seek to im­pose on them, and to sit down and do nothing to combat this rul­ing on forced racial mixing and its horrible implications on Christian civilization. A newspaper headline says "U.S. and Britain stick together on Syrian crisis". What's so unusual about that? It is reliably report­ed that the first thing Du!!es does each morning before breakfast is to get in touch with London and find out what the American peo­ple want. In its final passage, the so-called Civil Rights bill denies this tradition· al right to the citizens and so do so­called mental health bills under which a person who refuses to conform to one-world thinking can be declared insane without a trial by jury and carted off to an asylum. In view of this, Mrs. Walt)Oan points oUt that public officials who have sworn to uphold the Constitu~ tion but who, instead, have violated that oath by supporting legislation embodying a bill of attainder, are guilty of desecrating the Constitution and are, therefore, subject to removal from office. Since a bill of attainder i• a legis­lative act which Inflicts punishment on the accused without due process of law, including a trial by jury, and since both Civil Rights and Mental Health legislation contain a bill of attainder, it seems to us that this young woman ii: clearly »tanding on solid ground in making this charge.

After all, Mrs. Waltman 11 nothing but a patriotic American taxpayer seriously alarmed over the future of the Republic and since this f.lpe of citizen no longer has any voice In the discussion or solution of the nation'• vital Issues, she will probably be regarded as out of order for publicly calling attention to this apparent vio­lation of basic law. Lyndon Johnson and Ralph Yarbrough are the first two Sena­tors from Texas .to vote in favor of a "civil rights" bill since the carpetbag Senators of the first Re­construction period, says Lloyd S. Riddle of Dallas. "May the c~n­sciences of these two deal wtth them now and the voteJ's of Texas de'al with them later", Mr. Riddle added. This Texan predicts also that Lyndon Johnson will slick­talk his way out of the fact that he voted for this inquitious bill. Any bill bearing the title "civtl rights" is a hate-the·South bill and can in no conceivable way be satisfactory to Texans as Johnson claimed it was, Mr. Riddle charged. !eplembe,, 1957 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Californian Is Committed to Radio and Television Moguls Violate Asylum for Criticising U.N.

Racial racketeers, including those in the movie Industry out in Holly­wood, have expressed alarm On many occasions about the impressions for­eigners might gain of the United States for its "treatment" o( Negroes. There is a definite school of thought in that den of iniquity on the West Coast which holds that in order to gain t.he approval of the Soviets and other foreigners, Americans must mix indiscriminately with colored people on all levels. In the cinema capital, many low.grade Whites practice what they preach and we do mean on all levels. • Recently, it must have occurred to many to wonder what the impression on respe~t.able foreigners is as a re­sult of the filth and debauchery which is being shovelled out to the public In the trial of publishers of Confiden­tial Magazine for publicly portray­ing life in the raw of many top­bracket movie stars.

An Aging Statesman Talks When He Should Be listening In London, according to a Reuten release, Winston Churchill made a statement on September 2 which was either intended to aid the Communist cause or indica ted Senility bn h is part - or perhaps a little of both. He urged lawmakers of the world to "speak their own mind and not be spokesmen of established govern­ment". He further expressed the opin­ion that "freedom in the legislatures of all nations will promote tolention between ideologies and underst~u)d­ing between nations". His utterance is not only a strong plea for One·World government but an indirect suggestion that the pio­ple of the free world prepare to ac­cept Communism rather than combat it. Well, we have news for the old boy. What he suggests should be done is - · already being done and that is a large part of what is wrong with the world. In the United States, for in­stance, memben of Congress - who should be representing "established government" are nothing more than spokesmen for International Social- Jsm as represented by Churchill'll' England, and instead of trying to pre­serve that "established government" they are doing their dead·level best to destroy it. Churchill's outburst indicates that he is through in the forum and over­due in the rocking chair. WilHam Benton of Connecticut, dedicated left-winger who helped organize UNESCO and other prop­aganda movements while he wasn't busy serving a3 an advise1' to Americans for Democratic Ac­tion, is all riled up.

The latest pro-Communist term to be launched in the United States and which is slated to· rank along with one of similar origin, uDemocracy", is the phony phrase ..People's Capitalism". It is claim­ed to have been endorsed by hJ;Jh officials in Washington who are so lacking in stamina and belief in the American form of government that they are unable to stand up and defend our great Capitalistic System and so have deferred to the Soviets once again in coining this odious and obnoxious term.

Pogo 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1957 Aside From That This Good This Was Most Expensive Piece In the Name of Allah What Californian Loves Tee-Vee Will They Frame Up Next? Reflecting the sentiment of most Of Beefsteak in all Hist9ry Rock 'N Roll-weary Americans, Henry D. Allen of Granada Hills, California, has struck out against the "degen­erate noisy trash today called music". Tele vision, he points out, was de­veloped from the minds of intelligent resea rch engineers by the process of sci entific logic but he does not be­lieve that the ghastly and agonizing sounds which are emitted from the finished product were foreseen by its inventors. Explaining the result when he spins the dial in a vain search for real en­tertainment, Mr. Allen said: "My hearing is offended by the combined noises of howling coyoltes, screeching hoot owls, laughing hye­nas, hissing vultures and· the death­ratlle of gorillas in a battle royal. I am witnessing, and listening to a 'great ensemble' which is being huck­ste r ed by a great T .V. spieler whose voice is saturated with a heavy for­eign accent. It is a song and dance number by Finkelstein and Hoggen­heimer from the great mu-sick-all 'Nuts' ." As to television's value as an ln­lormation and educa tional medium, Mr. Allen charges that propaganda groups have acquired control of this miraculous phenomenon. "Instead of attaining the aims and hopes of those great minds who were inspired to give birth to this vast educational medium, it is being used today to mold the thinking and in­sult the intelligence of those who watch its programs," Mr. Allen said and added: "Much of it is obscene in the vilest sense - not to mention the irrepar­able damage it works upon impres­sionable minds of youngsters who sit by the hour in a darkened room con­centrating on the revolting sagas of crime prepared by an army of script writers and producers who can hard­ly speak English". Too Bad Delegates to Moscow Can't Stay There Permanently The trip of American juvenile de­linquents to the Communist Youth _ Congress in Moscow in August was about the sorriest and most disgust­ing spectacle the world has been called on to witnest to date. Naturally all who attended the af­fair were either outright Communists or sympa-thetic to the Communist cause or else they would not have made the trip. That they should defy the State Department in Washington and go to Red China in violation of the ir passports Is merely routine Communist procedure. Communists have been Insulting the American government for years and getting by with it and why shouldn't these young hoodlums feel free to do the ~arne? H is unfortunate that they couldn't be refused re·admission to this coun­try and thereby be compelled to take up their permanent abode with the Soviets where they properly belong. It is interesting to contemplate the persuasive qualities, in the passage or defeat of important legislation, of a simple piece of beefsteak. Perhaps it is not the tastiness of President said "Thanks a mil-lion." The Department of Internal Rev. enue in Washington has made a move which is causing widespread alarm and well it might in view or the dan­gerous implications involved this common article of food which influences the trend of legislative policies so much as the circum­stances, the atmosphere and the out. environment under which it is What the President should have said really was "Tha~ks five hun­dred million," for that was the figure which Johnson later told the press he would try to get re­stored to the bill and which good Americans in the House had cut Although, as finally passed, the foreign aid bill got approximately only half of the five hundred mil­lion restored, we submit that the tenderloin, filet mignon, plain round or whatever was served to the Texas senator at the Whfte House was the most expensive piece of beefsteak American tax­payers have ever purchased. The Department held a hearing in Washington on August 27 to discuss a proposed plan to amend the Inte rn­al Revenue rules to provide for com­pulsory registrations of all firearms by American citizens. The proposed amendment would require that records be kept of all "Individual purchases of revolver and pistol ammunition and would demand that all personS buying pistols, revolv­ers, rifles and shotguns sign a receipt acknowledging the possession of such served to the statesmen whom the purveyors of a cut of sirloin wish to influence. Senator Lyndon Johnson, for instance, did a lot of talking about "economy" for the benefit of the people back home in Texas the majority of whom are claimed to be opposed to the give·away pro­gram known as foreign aid, and helped to cut down the total ap­propriation for that program dur­ing Senate deliberation the first time. Then he got an invitation to come to the White House and eat steak for breakfast and that did it. After the meal was finished the senator, smiling coyly, posed with the President on the steps of the White House and. as the Texan de­parted newsmen reported that the In some State legislatures, as­tute lobbyists are said to have largely discarded the age-old for­mula of liquor and blondes as the surest method of influencing votes and, instead, are supplying law· makers with a daily diet of sizzl­ing steaks.

What in the name of all that's Holy the Department of Internal Revenue has to do with firearm!J or what right it has to demand a registration of them is beyond U!J but whether action by bureaucrats makes sense to tax­payers or not is the least of the wor­ries of political overlords in Wash-ington. Score• of American citizens have protested thia move pointing out that As A Result of Stupidity Drunk Drivers Get Break it is not only a v iolation of the sec~ ond amendment to the Constitution - which says that "the right of" the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" but also that a ready-made list of all private high· powered weapons in the country would be invaluable to the enemy in the event this nation should be in­vaded.

It Is explained· that this was not intentional on the part of the lawmakers--they just didn't know What they were doing.

From a friend in Austin, we have received an expensive 36 - page pamphlet outlining the pro:::eedings of a highly WJ?secret Conference held at Christ Episcopal Church in Nashville, Tennessee, April 24-25, at which time the proposed program soon to be launched in Texas and the South was formulated. The pamphlet is marked "Confi­dential - for Private Circulation Only" and on a fly-leaf makes thi9 plea !or secrecy: "News of this Con­ference was not released to either the secular or religious press. Like­wise this Report is not for news re­lease, nor may Its findings be quot­ed in sermons, articles or reports of Departments of Christian Social Re­lations. This request is consist­f'nt with the purpose and nature of the Conference". The pamphlet is not copyrighted; it's just not for publica­tion! Its principal author is given as Rev. Das Kelley Barnett, Associate Professor of Christian Ethi~s and Mor:Jl Theology, the Episcopal Theo­logical Seminary of tJ;le . Southwest, Austin, Texas. First, we wish to explain that in Texas, as in other Southern States, Epis:!opalians are widely regarded as among the most cultured, educated and responsible citizens of their re­spective States. Unlike some of the leaders of that faith in the North and East, Texas and Southern members of that denomination are generally con­servative, sound-thinking and level­headed Americans and, aside from a few of their ''liberal" ministers, are not given to accepting strange and alien doctrines eit•her In the religious, social or political field. The Reverend Mr. Barnett, how­ever, proposes to change all this and to this end he and a handful of min­isters and laymen ol. like mind and ideology met behind closed doors in this highly secret conclave at Nash­ville to give "strategic direction" to the movement to bring Negroes into White Episcopal churches o! Texas and the South, according to the pamphlet. It must be borne in mind that there was no question of a problem or a pressing emergency wherein Minis­ters of the Gospel had met to give thoughtful prayerful comlideration to a distressing subject. No colored peo~ ple were clamoring for admission to White Episcopal churches in Texas or elsewhere in the South. Apparently the only Negro involved in the whole proceeding was the professional agi­tator and race-baiter from Alabama', Martin Luther King, who was present at Nashville and was closeted with Rev. Barnett and his associates for several days while they sweated over the task of first having to create the problem and then offer a solution. The matter of the Supreme Court decision on segregation in the schools was raised at the Conference and the question was then asked by Barnett: "What is the Episcopal Church doing about integration in the South" This is perhaps the first time the Court decision on integration has been officially interpr~ted as apply­ing to chur::hes and this construction of the ruling will no dOubt occasion surprise and amazement on the part of the average lay member of the church. Stating that the purpose of the Nashville Conference was to "discuss a flexible, workable strategy in race relations" Barnett emphasized once more at the dcse of the session that "this meeting will not be publicized nor will its findings be released to the press". Since ~he pamphlet states frankly that Barnett and his group were there "to study techniques and methods of implementation to achieve integration in the church", one can­not help wondering why nil the secre­cy? Isn't the subject of sufficient im­portan'te and the proposals advanced so revolutionary that the lay mem­bers of the church who put up the money to pay these minister's salaries entitled to be let in on the secret? The language employed both in the pamphlet and- in Barnett's speech de~ livered at the Conference is extreme­ly un-ministerial and is adapted more to a smoke-fiJled room at a po­litical pow-wow where one faction is trying to out·smart another rather than to a grave and serious discussion of spiritual matters wh"iC'h one in­stinctively ascribes to gentle and kind­ly men of the Cloth. "Is it Jesus Christ or Jim Crow", Barnett profanely demanded of his listeners, after first reminding them that unless his -churc;h acts to bring about integration they will "extend Hell's pavements of good intentions". As if fearful that some might be slightly sho~ked at this sacrilegious and blasphemous utterance, Barnett hastened to add:' "Here we might ask those of us like myself-White, Southern-born and bred-we who once saw no contradiction between Jim Crow and Jesus Christ-why did we change? Why are we here?". Answering his own question, this great theological "strategist" ex­plained: "Education played a part. Sodal sciences helped. But above all we saw the Bible in a new light. We came under a type of Christian In­fluence that convinced but did not coerce . • ". Actually we could add some other factors which influenced the changed atti­tude of ministers such as Barnett but he named most of the forces which caused those of his i1k to abandon the Gospel o! Jesus for the principles of Karl Marx. "G<ld is not primarily interested in religion" was another of Barnett's startling pronouncements to his se­lect audience" and he went on to ex­plain that public education, the right to vote and the right of labor to or­ganize were of equal importance In contributing to "the whole of man". He appeared to speak with con­viction when he practically promised his group that the Supreme Court would not reverse its decision on segregation and made mysterious reference to a message which Presi­dent EJsenbower had sent to the Con­ference the night before, leading to the obvious conclusion that in epite In the North It's A 'Noisy Crowd' In the South It's an 'Angry Mob' IN THE south it's an "angry mob" .. Other papers have commented on the difference in the way the news­gathering agencies handle so-called mob action in the South and in other sections of the country and we nat­urally are moved to comment there- The case in Levittown is a good illustration. In that Pennsylvania sub. urban city sixty thousand White peo­ple have been "' living in peace and harmony for years. Then up jumped the Devil in the form of a leftist organizatio., and in· duced a Negro family to buy a home in the all-White community. Natural­ly and inevitably, this infuriated the home-owners there and they perform­ed as was to be expected. Thousands collected in protest and when the gathering got out of hand, stones were hurled, plate-glass windows were broken and the Negro was threat­ened. Bu~ ~:c. :-e~c::-te!'~ !or the press re­fer to it as "mob action"? Not on your life. It was "noisy protest" and "unrulY groups" and what have · you but if it had been in the South, they would have given it the works. There is one angle of press re­ports, however, which are identical whether the incident be in Missis­sippi, in Detroit or wherever. The Negroes involved in such cases are always deait wibi gently aQd tender­ly and made to appear as quiet, peace-of all the secrecy attending the gath­ering, the President had been tipped off that it was to be held. The Citizens CounciJs of the vari­ous states appeared to be the parti­cular target of Rev. Barnett's hatred and he des~ribed them as "deriving their dynamics in part from the guilt neurosis o! Christians transferred in­to organized hate of the Negro", Per­haps it was an oversight on the part of the good man but at no point did he similarly classify the NAACP or refer to it as representing organized hate of the White man. In closin&, Mr. Barnett warned his :fellow "strategist.s" t-hat Southerners "can be led but not driven" and in­formed them that the campaign for integration would be formulated at an institutional level and that a long­range program of human relations ''would make for gradual but certain desegregation of the churches". Im­plementing this policy, he said, will "call for expanded departments of Christian social relations in denomi­nations, expanded' programs of Chris­tian so::ial ethics in the seminaries, and inter-denominational cooperation between and upon all levels, national, State and local ministerial councils". Apparently the good man is nothing if not thorough and he made Jt plain that there ll! going to be integration on aU levels. Period. AJJ encourage­ment to his team, he claimed that youth camps are already integrated Jn South Florida, Texas, Kentucky and Virginia but that we'll have to We hope that this alight note of warning which we are able to live by violating Mr. Barnett's injunctions for "secrecy" will help to cushion the shock when his bold plan is final­ly sprung on the dues-paying mem­bers o! hi1 church. able citizens going about their affairs with no intent to harm any one while White people are pictured as savages running around with murder in their hearts. In every case like that of Levit~ town, therE! is always a "nigger in the woodpile" and it wasn't long un­til it developed that the colored man who bought a home in the midst ot 60,000 white persons was being spon~ sored by the American Friends Serv~ ice Committee whose agents helped the Negro family move and unload their furniture in their new home. The American Friends Service Committee engages in various activ1~ ties but they specialize in sending speakers out over the country to ad~ dress religious and educationni groups and almost invariably such speakers ~ have a long Communist front record. Some yf'ars ago as recorded in these columns at the time they sent a Ne~ gro man to address the Asso.:ia- !ion of American University Women in Pasadena, California, and this Ne-gro, one Bayard Rustin, was arrested on a morals charge soon after leav-ing the assembly hall where he spoke to the white women. The Friends bear down heavi1y on racial mixing and, like all left.wing organizations clear up to the Com­munist Party they are '"hipped" on the subject. It all figures and any one who can't see the clear patter1,1 involved in the ra<:ifll-mixingactivitieswhichareget­ting priority attention in all areas, in~ cluciint the Halls of Congress, are blind as a bat. They Run Out of Wars And Start Fighting Each Other As if there were not al~eady enoug~ turmoil and strife in the world, th& English have gotten into a looal squabble which is pitched around the Royal family, From all we can gather, British "liberals" don't want to give up Royalty but they want to de-horn it of all its symbols. One muddle-headed young pinko with a title even suggested that their Monarchy should operate more Jike a "Democracy" and kick out the high~ brow advisers to the Queen and sub­stitute some roughnecks from the wrong !!ide of the tracks. Since "Monarchy" means a govern~ ment ruled by a single person and "Democracy" is a theoretical term in which a government would be ruled directly by all the people, this young squirt's anachronistic bust would seem to entitle him to rank along with our Supreme Court Justices who made the famous crack about ''delib­erate speed" in their integration de­cision. The trouble with England is that they persist in calling their country a Monarchy while, at the same time • maintaining a Socialist government. Just as we in the United States are a Capitalistic country operating Free Enterprise under a government that is administered by Soci8list.s. No wonder the sensible and nor­mal citizens of both countries are so confused they "don't know from noth­ing." Page I Supreme Court Renders A Cireat Service to Service An Item of amazing interest to the American people but which received a minimum of publicity on Its release - was th& announcement that John Stewart Service has not only been offe red his old job in the State De· partment but has been promised a substantial raise in salary over ·that he received when he was bounced out of that agency In 1951 on loyalty grounds. It will be recalled that In 1945 hun· dreds of U.S. top secret documents we re found in the offices of Amerasia, a Communist-planned publication which was launched and sponsored lby ~he Institu te of Pa::ific Relations. These official secret documents were from Military and Naval Intelligence, the State Department, the OSS and the Bureau of. Censorship and were plainly stamped <;the possession of these documents by any unauthorized person constitutes a violation of the Espionage act." Amerasia, the publi· cation in whose offices the documents were found , was financed by Fred· erick Vanderbilt Field and Philip J affe of the Institute of Pacific Rela. l ions, and whose recorsJs are familiar to all students of Communist front activities. During an investigation into Amer· asia, which was later whitewashed by the Tydings Committee and whose complete report was withheld from the public, an FBI agent testified that J ohn Stewart Service, State Depart· ment employee, had visited J affe's hote-l room and turned documents over to him which Service warned were top secret. Five years later, and over the pro· test 1o( Secretary of State Dean Ache· son, the Loyalty Review Board found that there wos "reasonable doubt" as to the loyalty of Service and he was fired from his State Department job. Climax to the matter came this past June when the Supreme Court ruled, in effect, that although there wcur "reasonable doubt" as to his loyalty, Service was entitled to the benefit ot that doubt and that he had been wrongfully discharged. Service was immediately offered his old job back in the State Depart· ment and, in addition, was info rmed that his salary would be increased from $11,2:50 which he was receiving at the time of the Amerasia inciOent, to $12,250, according to a press re· lease in the Chicago Trihune. The moral of it all seems to be th at if you are a loyal patriotic Amer ~ lean, you get '·censured" and hounded to death but if you are - disloyal, or there is a doubt about your loyalty to your country, you . get a nice raise in salary, Unless the American people fin nty make up their minds to vote ..against every Internationalist One-Worlder in Washington who ~~t~e;u~f :! t~:z7e~~;tte~;i;:~~~~~ the goose·step because they an going to need it as minions of a Communist·controlled One-World government which is being pre­pared for us.

Hail and Farewell to One of the Republic's Staunchest Defenders I ronically, in the same Senate Chamber where less than two years ago Soviet a'gents and their allies in this country made a villainous attack on the late Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin, ceremonies were held on August 14 in which greater tributes were oiferea- to his hmiestmoroyr.y than were ever accorded to an Americ·a n statesman in all The major part of the Senate Section of the Congressional Record of that date is devoted to expressions of affection, respect and gratitude for his magnificent fight in behalf of American security offered by his colleagues in the Senate and to coverage of editorials from the secular and clerical press concerning his matchless service to his country. We are understandably proud of the fact that our lead editorial in the May edition e ulogizing Senator McCarthy was one of the two from Texas selected for reproduction in the Record on the occasion of the Memorial Service, the other one being from the Houston Ch ronicle. We get even more consolation from the realization that, while he was still alive and during the years of his devoted service to the Re­publi c, we put ou t few editions i n which we failed to express apprecia­tion for his splendid efforts to fend off Communist encroachment on our institutions and way of life, in the strongest language we were able to command. One of ou r most valuable possessions is a letter in which he let us know how much this type of support from patriotic Americans meant to him in the dark hours through which he so often passed. From newspaper columnists, from former U. S . spies and other sources we have been getting in­creasing warnings lately that there are going to be exposures in the near future concerning well known persons in this country who are agents of Russia , which w ill "shock a nd stun" the Amer­ican people. We have no doubt they are right and that such disclosures will be made but they are not going to "shock and stun" us. We have seen so much authentic data con· cerning Communist infiltration in this country that we are imll}une and proof against being either shocked or stunned. With each r evelation, we are j ust a little more grieved, that's all. The book on which we are work­ing and which will contain leading editorials from the Southern Con­servative is progressing slowLy. The problem is the selection of the material and what to leave out in order to hold down the length of it. Any one who may want extra copies of the paper this month or a re-print of the lead editorial will please advise u.s as ·early as pos­sible. We will try to have the type held for ten days after publica­tion for any extra orders that may come in.
