Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 9 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JULY-AUGUST, 1958 Nos. 7-8 The Time Has Come To Call A Spade A Spade IF THEY COULDN'T HANDLE THE JOB WHY DID THEY ASK FOR IT? Being fresh out ot ideas on the subject, members of the House ot Representatives in Washington went into a huddle and came up with a new way to spend other peoples' hard-earned money. There are 435 Congressmen and one of their number, Sam Friedel of Maryland, has introduced a bill which would provide each of them with an "Administrative Assistant" at a salary beginning at $7,500 per year or a total cost of $3,262,500 to the taxpayers who are already stag­gering under the burden like old man Atlas with the world on his aching back. ThP reason advanced by the solons for the need of this additional help i~ that it would take the pressure off ot them and give them more time to ponder the weighty problems of State unhampered by the chores which daily plague the great statemen who must frame legislation for t he reg ulation of us poor domestic peons while providing financial sup­port to other bums and beggars across the sea. They po in t out that these "Administrative Assistants" would ~ct in the capacity of public relations counsel, visit the various agenc1es of government in behalf of their constituents and run errands generally for the great minds in the Lower House of Congress. With all due respect to the august lawmakers, we think they have gone at the matter backwards and that it should be handled in reverse. What they should do is to run their own errands and hire somebody to do their thinking. From most of their recent performances, we have come to the con­clusion that the parts ot their anatomy which are more effectively func· tionin~ in the interests of their constituents are their legs and not their brains: The State of the Union would be vastly improved if they spent all their waking hours visiting government agencies and if the~ ar~ reliev~d of this angle of the job, only the good Lord knows what legtslallve devtl· ment they will hatch up in their spare time. . . We hope the bill is defeated and that they have to keep domg thetr own e-rrands. As long as they are on the run they won't be voting for some fool project thought up by International Communists to put the American Republic out of the picture. Our Heritage To Tomorrow's Children July first was the beginning of a new fiscal year with the Federal government and it was ushered in with the threat that there will be a fiscal deficit by the end of the year of between $11,000,000,000.00 and $12,000,000,000.00 and the $280,- 821,000,000.00 current national debt is expected to climb even higher. When final figures are compiled, It is expected that they will show that spending of taxpayers' money was close to $3,000,000,000.00 more than the income during the past year. What convincing testimony to An American Prayer Dear Savior, please grant us in this dark hour of peril great lead­ers of the stature of Jefferson, Jack~ son, Webster, Clay and Calhoun and deliver us from the glorified safecrackers who now rule over us and who constantly raid our pub­lic treasury, make sneak attacks on human liberty and who seek to di­vest us of our substance and sove· reignty and convert a freedom-lov­Ing people into servile slaves of totalitarian masters. the honesty and integrity of those entrusted with running the nation's business affairs and what a won­derful heritage to leave tomorrow's children! There is a network of underground Communist cells spanning this country from New York to California and Soviet espionage is known to be a t an oil-time high in the United States. The House Un-American Activities Committee, and other investigative agencies have within recent years compiled, and distributed authentic records on subversion which, if placed end to end, would reach almost from Moscow to Washington. These documents contain millions upon millions of words from witnesses under oath attesting to the fact that the fields of gov­ernment, labor, the military, education, religion, the book and magazine publishing industry, science, press, radio, stage and screen are honeycombed with enemy agents subtly seeking to destroy the American R.epub\\c. But when Communist age nts a re exposd, indicted and convicted the Supreme Court goes into action and turns them loose. When an American patriot flushes out traitors in high posts of authority, the powerful ma· chinery of the White House and of the United States Sen­a te is put in motion to silence and smear him, All of which is rather convincing proof that In sending billions of dollars a way to co,tain Communism abroad w e are putting our money in the wrong place and that it's a criminal waste of our re sources to finance fore igners' fight a gainst Soviet saboteurs until we have cleaned out our Augean stables here a t home. · The first beachhead of International Communism was set up on American shores on that unhappy day in 1933 when Franklin D. Roose­velt, as President of the United States, extended official recognition to the murderous overlords of the Kremlin and accorded them all the honors and yrivi l eg~:>s which only decent and civilized nations are traditionally entitled to enjoy. In the years that followed, his wife who-by courtesy title-was designated as the First Lady of the Land went overboard for Communist causes and gamboled, pranced and cavorted all over the White House lawn with as many dedicated young Reds as could bum and thumb a ride to Washington. Her indefensible behavior started a trend which has never been halted to this day wherein it became the fashion for those in high posi­tion to spout Marxist theories at teas and cocktail parties and was con· sidered smart for fuzzy-brained intellectuals to damn the American form of government, the Constitution and our way of life as outmoded relics of horse and buggy days. This tidal wave of disloyalty to cherished American institutions which engulfed the nation as a result of White House example, brought in its wake a flood of subversive policies of government which subse­quent administrations have not only refttsed to repudiate but have broad· ened, extended and multiplied. Officially, we are committed to fight Communism and to help free the people of the Satellite countries from the heavy yoke of slavery forged around their necks by the bloody tyrants of the Soviet Republic. Actually, our performance has been just the reverse. It Is not the function of an editor to make history but only to record (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It-The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE July-August, 1958 Good Rooms Ran As Much As A Dollar A Day In Those Times We thought that everything that could be said on the subject had been said when the Adams case involving the payment of a $2200 hotel bill by Mr. Bernard Goldfine, was aired by the Harris sub-Com­mittee of the House. But no sooner had these revela­tions begun to lose their shock value when the Associated Press dug up and broke out on the front pages of the nation's newspapers a story to the effect that in 1952 presidential candidate Dwight D. Eisenhower and his staff ran up a $4,000 hotel bill for an overnight stay at the swanky Roney Plaza in Miami and then skipped town with­out settling the account. The Tampa Tribune, according to the A.P. release, went on a sleuthing expedition to find out if the account had ever been paid but secrecy was clamped down and everybody, including the auditor of the Roney Plaza at the time, stood on their Constitutional rights and refused to give. Mercy me! Such carryings-o~! We can remember in our child­hood when some stranded "drum­mer," as all travelling salesmen were then called, would treat the village hotel keeper in a similar Finding himself without funds , he would crawl out the window at midnight, sneak over to the depot to wait for a passing freight train and take it on the lam. There were no Bernard Goldfines in those days to come along and pick up the tab. The hole! had to absorb the loss while the "proprie­tor" swore gently under his breath and vowed that if he ever met up with that "drummer" again, he would take it out of his hide. The loss sometimes ran up to as much as twelve or fifteen dollars, too. How times and prices do change! There Is Sometimes A Method In Madness Thirty-one of the thirty-six mem­bers of the Lower House of Con­gress who are retiring this year are Republicans and the six senators who are not seeking reelection are also Republicans. Privately it is reported in Wash­ington that these men are deserting a sinking ship because the Presi­dent has shown no inclination to build up the party but has, on the other hand, done much to destroy it. Maybe that was the idea in the first place. After all, there is no place in One-World Government for politi­cal parties. When a Soviet ballet troupe per­formed at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York recently, alongside of the American flag was -the Hammer and the Sickle. That isn't all. When the orchestra played the Communist Internationale, the audience in the packed house stood at attention. Such patriotic devo­tion to their own country on the part of these New Yorkers, and visiting firemen, s i m p Z y over­whelms m! • Neither, Military Nor Civi11an Dictators Wanted In The U.S. The charges in the press that Defense Chief McElroy had severe­ly chastised Admiral Arleigh Burke for speaking his mind and express­ing opposition to the Defense uni­fication plan before a Congression­al Committee, came just at a time when the administration was on the defensive because of the Adams affair. So it was found necessary to deny that McElroy intended to re­buke Admiral Burke or that he had issued instructions that any De­fense Department general testify­ing before committees of Congress must approve the Eisenhower pro­posal for Reorganization or else. We are glad that Mr. McElroy has retracted and apologized for his former attitude for while no one wants Military Government in this country, neither do they want a civilian soap man set up as a Dic­tator. The horrible farce which the American exhibit at the Brussels Fair turned out to be makes sober persons wonder how much longer we will continue to let morons !n the State Department make a. laughing stock of this country be­fore the whole worl.d. The Time Has Come !Continued from Page I) it and in keeping with this precept, we present a few notable instances herein which would seem to indicate that our policies of government and official actions have not only not been in opposition to Communism but have aided in giving it a strangle-hold in this country and throughout the world. Perhaps the most colossal act of collaboration with Communists of which this country has been guilty was the selling out of the great friend­ly Rf'public of China to the Soviets by the American State Department in a manner described by one of the attaches in that agency as permitting China to fall to the Communists "without letting it be known that she was pushed." C'rowding that incident for first place in infamy was the withholding of American troops and preventing them from entering Germany at the close of World War II when the 'beaten armies of that defeated country were denied their request to surrender to American forces and the Com­munists permitted to rush in and indulge in the most dastardly orgy of rape, murder and plunder ever recorded in the annals of human warfare. J'his miserable concession gave Eastern Europe to the Soviets and entrenched them so firmly in the Balkans that they were able to reach out and draw a score of helpless countries behind the ITon Curtain and to build up the tragic conditions which today threaten war to all the civilized world. At Yalta, with an American Soviet agent at his elbow, an American Presirlent, overawed and outwitted by Stalin's clever and scheming brain, calmly a~reed to plans which were to develop into the sell-out of prac· tically all Asia to the Communists and give them a foothold there com­parable to the one which was given them in Europe when American generals held back our troops and allowed the Soviets to rush into Berlin. At Potsdam, another American President, outclassed and out-thought at every turn by Stalin, agreed that the independent nation of Korea would be divided and the Communists given the Northern half. This was ifl July, 1945 and one month later Communists troops swarmed into that country occupying 48,460 square miles of territory with a population of 9,000,000 people. In June of 1950 the Communist troops of North Korea invaded South Korea in what, for face-saving and diplo­matic reasons was to be termed "Police Action" but which was to rank with the bloodiest wars in history. On July .7. the President ordered United States troops into South Korea under the command of General Douglas MacArthur. At the same time, the President ordered the Seventh Fleet into Formosa to keep Gen­eral Chiang Kai-Shek's forces from invading the mainland of China al­thoue; h it is widely believed in military circles that if the President had not interfered in behalf of Communist China and had allowed Chiang's Nationalist army to invade the mainland, the Chinese people would have risen in revolt against the Communists, Communism in Asia would have been stopped cold and thousands of American and South Korean lives would have been saved. When General MacArthur had the North Koreans on the run, he was suddt:nly ordered to halt his forces at the Yalu River instead of pursuing the- enemy and wiping out the North Koreans. This retreating action wa5 on orderS from the Commander-in-Chief in Washington-at least the orders were delivered by him but there are several schools of thought concrning who originally issued them. We did not win the war, the South Koreans did not win and Red China was saved by the sending of the Seventh Fleet to Formosa. At Geneva, still another American President, broke bread with and toasted in vodka and champagne the atheistic assassins of the Kremlin who had cold-bloodedly murdered millions of Christians, to the despair and heartbreak of the slaves in Satellite countries who had looked to the United States to deliver them from the serfdom imposed by brutal Soviet masters. In addition, he made a strong plea .to the United Nations for a world plan of sharing the atomic secrets of this country with all other nations including Russia. When the oppressed slaves of Hungary made a valiant attempt to regain their freedom which would have succeeded with any show of sympathy and assistance from professed opponents of Communism, the United States' part in protest began and ended with a soft note to the Soviets signed jointly with other members of a Communist-dominated Unitect Nations. When the Soviet monsters murdered Jmre Nagy and three other Hungarian fighters we went through the same silly performance of writing a note and then sent our Qiplomats to Geneva, as if nothing had happened, to "confer" with Moscow gangsters concerning the possibility of stopping our own nuclear tests although we know full well that no such agreements by the Soviets will be kept. S1milar inexplicable actions on the part of leaders of a free Republic officially on record as opposed to Communist aggression but who, in reality. have helped to elevate International Communism to its status as perhaps the world's strongest power could be cited indefinitely but ~~~~ ~~; c~~~s are enough to inspire deep foreboding and make the To all this, add the fact that there are hundreds of alleged respect­able organizations composed of men and women in high position who are promoting the Communist line as faithfully as though they were party members, together with thousands of free-lance traitors who o~ _erate in every sphere of human activity in this country and we have an amazing picture of unified and coordinated subversion which brings a chil1 of horror to the hearts of staunch Americans who fear for the sur­vival of the Republic. It could be that we and millions like us are in the minority in re­jecting the premise that abject slavery is preferable to human freedom as a way of life but we and all other patriotic Americans will live and die In the firm and unswerving conviction that the American form of govern­ment based on Christian principles and human dignity is as near an in­vincible governing instrument as mortal mind can devise. To us, there is no alternative, no substitute and no compromise. At any rate, the sands in the hour-glass of time are running low and the day has come for God-fearing and patriotic Americans to take action which will .determine what their heritage to posterity will be and whether their children will live in the reflected glow from the bright light of human liberty or have their dreams clouded with fear of concentration camps and secret police and dwell in eternal dread of a gentle tap on their door at midnight. July-Augu•t, 1958 Racial Mixers Get Their First Major Set-Back The first major retreat of inte­gration forces from the Little Rock battleground occurred r e c e n t I y when a Federal judge ruled that racial mixing in the schools there will be postponed until September or 1961. The Little Rock school board, which found itself unable to cope with the situation at Central High School last yea r, even with the aid of Federal troops and the Arkansas National Guard, had petitioned the Court for a ruling to this effect and members of the board were report­ed as highly elated at the outcome. Back of the a c t i o n taken by United States District Judge Harry J. Lemley, who handed down the­decision, is reported to be a dawn­ing realization on the part of white integration advocates that they have made a ghastly mistake in try­ing to force Soviet racial policies on the citizens of a free Republic. Memories of hard-boiled soldiers pressing bayonets into the backs of white students and of an American public school system being domi­nated by an arrogant Negro woman with an alleged police record are proving hard to erase and it is be­lieved that the sovereign State of Arkansas has heard the last of the degrading subject of racial mixing In the schools. Of course when a Federal Judge makes a decision in keeping with the American Constitution, a rarity in these days ot Modern Republic­anism, there are naturally many rumors born ot the incident. One is that the President will hope that there will be no dissent from the Arkansas Judge's ruling on the part of the Supreme Court and that the matter will rest where It is. It takes the President off the hot seat. After all, $4!0,333.33 per Negro fs a pretty stiff price for even the free-spending Eisenhower adminis­tration to pay for tuition for the colored students of Little Rock. Also a retreat on the part of the administration at this time in the matter of integration might be in­terpreted by some of the Presi­dent's advisers as a tactic which could ameliorate some of the in­tense bitterness against the Repub­licans on the pa rt of the people of the South for the passage of Civil Rights legislation and for the ad­ministration's mongrelization poli­cies generally. The worst traitor yet is one who gets himself elected to office as a Conservative and then double­crosses those who elected him by throwing in with the Reds. We have far more respect for a left­winger who remains true to his convictions regardless of how wrong such convictions may be. A turncoat inspires the contempt of both sides. Senator Lyndon Johnson of Texas says that there is great need for legislation which will get this country into outer space as soon as possible. What the senator does not realize is that we are already up in the air and have been for twenty-five years. What we need is to get back on solid ground once more. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Pogo ] ·who Cares What Communists Think Indonesian Reds "Took" About Music Or Anything Else 1 UsPre~~~}!~~:~~oO,~O~~~O Red We could never understand why the young East Texas musician, Van Cliburn, had his head so com­pletely turned because the Bolshe­viks flattered and applauded his playing when he appeared in Mos­cow last Spring. This month, Leopold Stokowski, symphony orchestra conductor in this country, also gave a concert in the Russian capital and, following the performance, gave out an inter­view in which he practically raved and tore his hair, if any, over the Communists. "I want to say how much I like the Soviet people," he told the press. "They understand through their hearts. Most people under­stand through their heads but this is deeper, more fundamental." He added that the Soviet public is "just wonderful." to be extremely sympathetic to Communist ideologies. According to Appendix IX of the Dies Committee Reports, Stokow­ski has been cited as a member of the National Council of American­Soviet Friendship (page 1202); also as having been affiliated with the American Committee for Struggle Against War (page 409) and listed as vice president of American So­ciety for Cultural Relations with Russia. All of the above outfits are cited as Communist Fronts in the same report. Also, back in 1934 the American Legion protested bitterly against his playing the Communist Inter­nationale at the Philadelphia Sym­phony Orchestra concert, accord­ing to the Chicago Tribune of Jan­uary 26, 1934. Dictator of Indonesia who, with American help and money, beat into submission the anti-Commu4 nist forces there who tried to wrest their government back from the Kremlin partisans but were unsuc4 cessful. In June, 1956, Sukarno visited Washington for the purpose which underlies the visits of all foreign visitors to the American capital­he carne for a hand-out, and, of course, got it. After he had returned to Indo­nesia from Washington President Eisenhower wrote him a letter, ac­cording to an editorial in the Sat­urd< l.y Evening Post, which con­tained this touching paragraph: ' 1You have taken something of AmP-rica with you." What he has "taken" of America so far, according to the Post, is "$122.000,000.00 plus the possible delivery of all Southeast Asia to It was easy to understand Sto­the Communists." kowski's partiality to the Soviets. He not only was a resident of Leningrad for a time but appears Stokowski is permanent part­time conductor of the Houston Symphony Orchestra and is gushed and gooed over by many persons there as if he were the most dedi­cated American and patriotic citi­zen alive. ---------~---------- Dallas School Board Rules For Continued Segregation Time T 0 Bury Sherman Adams Affair Another reassuring action in be-half of the law and common sense In The Graveyard Of Dead Scandals wasthatoftheDallasSchooiBoard which announced that segregation would continue to prevail in the 1958-59 term. We think that the subcommittee of the House of which Congress­man Oren Harris of Arkansas is chairman would do well to drop the investigation into the affairs of Mr. Sherman Adams since the Democrats have proved their point. The point is that the re is essenti­ally no difference in the two major parties, when the chips are down, and that the leaders or both per­form with complete fidelity to the same pattern, both in their official actions and private conduct. We have hammered away for years on the thesis that there is not one particle of difference in the party policies of Modern Re­publicans and Fair Deal Democrats since both are committed to Inter­national Socialism and now it hag been disclosed that there is no dis­tinction in the measure of cor·rup­tion which prevails In the inner ranks of both parties. The only d ifference between them is the difference between a mink and a vicuna coat. It stands to reason that men who have repeatedly been guilty of act­ing against the best interests of their own country and who have demonstrated time and again their vulnerability to Communist propa­ganda are or a moral and ethical stature which would make influ­ence peddling come as natural to them, and to their associates, as the rising of the sun in the East. Men of impeccable character and statesmanlike attainments and who are possessed or the attributes of honesty and personal integrity sim­ply do not connive with conspira~ It is claimed that Federal uur­ban Renewal" of the cities is go­ing to make "dream cities" of them. When the citizens wake up they may find that the proper word is ((nightmare". tors against their country to plunge the nation of their birth toward the abyss of bankruptcy, place an un­bearable burden of debt on unborn generations or weaken the Repub­lic's financial structure by robbing the people or their substance. Under the ba r ome t er which measures human weakness and mortal error, pedd ling personal in­fl uence is a minor misdemeanor in comparison with the monumental betrayal of trust and or the people of the United States of which the officials of the three branches of government have been guilty for the past quarter of a century. The effective, dignified and con­structive way out of the whole mire of corruption which engulfs both major political parties is for the American people to clean up the intolerable mess in both. This can ~e done by the selection of candidates for office at the low­est level who are honest, working on up to those to the national con­ventions with the objective of gain­ing nominees for President on both tickets whom decent Americans ~~~e~upport without holding their It is not enough to be forced to continue to select the least of two evils in choosing a candidate for the exalted post of President of the United States. The Citizens of this Republic are entitled to a choice between two candidates of such ingrained incor­ruptibility that they will refuse to surround themselves wi.th a staff which is unable to resist the tender of a mink coat or an Oriental rug. If we still had Constitutional Government in this country, we would have no fear of Communism or any other kind of uism" and we could return to Americanism again. School board officials took note of the fact that Texas law prevents schools from segregating without an election being held on the sub­ject. Those which integrate with­out following this procedure would sacrifice state funds for mainte­nance of public schools. Integrationists, including the membership of the National Asso­ciation for the Advancement of Colored People, have long had their eyes on Dallas where they had hoped to develop another Little Rock and perhaps induce the Pres­ident to send Federal troops to pro­tect Negro students. Majority sentiment in Dallas, like that of the rest of the State, is heavily in favor of segregation and the decision of the School Board was heartily approved by the bet­ter element of the people of that city. Federal Judges in Memphis Hand Down Sane Ruling A three-judge Federal Court in Memphis, Tennessee, rejected firm­ly a suit filed by the National Asso­ciation for the Advancement of Colored People for the abolishment of seating arrangement in city buses where segregation of the races is observed. The suit by the NAACP was filed in the name of a young Negro re­cently arrived in Memphis and be­lieved brought there for the pur­pose. The action by the Federal judges in this case is believed inspired by a growing recognition on the part of authorities of the heavy Negro crime wave which has resulted from Communist agitation for in­tegration of the races and which has given Negroes the impression that they are beyond the law.

THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: We have been under the impression that · the richest man in the world was a Mr. Paul Gatty but now we are about to decide that we were wrong and that this distinction goes to Mr. Bernard Goldfine of Boston. Ou r conclusion is based on the fact that he seems to dish out money by the bushel and appears to have donated currency and expensive gifts to most all those with whom he had a nodding acquaintance. We certain ly wish we could get to him for some of that loose dough: We wouldn't want any vicuna coat because we are not quite sure what a vicuna coat is; we wouldn't want any $2200 hotel bill paid for us because we haven't got time to live it up in such luxury and we couldn't use a $2400 Oriental rug because we have no home to put it in and couldn 't very well spread it on the sidewalk in front of the small hotel where we live. What we would like to have is some of Mr. Goldfine's plentiful cold cash. We couldn't deliver any influence in return for it because "we ain't got any" but we would promise to put the money to good use and we wouldn't even mind when Mr. Goldfine stuck out his chest and braggCd about giving it to us. What we would use the money for would be to tell more people than we can now reach about the difference that does not exist between the Fair Deal Party and the Modern Republican Party and that both have their hand out. We would earnestly plead with the voters to pronounce a plague on both houses and to refuse to nominate for President in 1960 any person who has heretofore been remotely mentioned as a possible candidate of either party. We would urge them to really clean up "the mess" this time, kick the ra scals out of both major parties and get some new red American blood into the political life stream of the nation. We would beg them to start at the grass roots and bring about the nomination of honest, upright and patriotic candidates to head both tickets and throw out all thosE' currently engaged in selling out the American Republic.

We respectfully remind Mr. Goldfine if he had only contributed to us, instead of shelling out to politicians who are ready to repudiate him If They Get Caught in • show-down, he wouldn't be in the jam he is in today. It's Just One On 'Em When I Do It It's 'Mob Violence' The latest outdoor sport seems to be for various gangster countries and outlaw revolutionists to go out and capture Americans just for the heck of it and hold them prison­ers. Even when a windstorm blows hapless citizens of this Republic across their borders, they race out and latch on to them and put them in the jug. The Communist Chinese started it when they refused to give up American prisoners of war and since they got away with it with no serious consequences except the receipt of a few wrist-slapping notes, other Red nations entered into the spirit of the thing and have made a game of it. • In fact, not many days pass that representatives of some barbaric country don't go out and bag a few Americans before breakfast. They take 'em back alive, dare us to do anything about it and then sit back and wait to see what hap­pens. The joke is on them, however, because nothing happens. We don't do anything about it. Also, an Old Spanish Custom which is growing in popularity is for residents of nations who don't like us to spit on our Ambassadors of Good Will as they go about spreading the doctrine of Universal Brotherhood and World Peace. All this, of course, is in the in­terest of god clean fun , and we wouldn't think of taking offense at it. There are around 400 employes on the White House staff, 46 of whom are on the President's per­sonal staff. It costs the taxpayers $3,400,000 per year to run the Executive office alone. Once the entire ex penses of government were less than that. When You Do It It's 'Peaceful Protest' When citizens of strife-torn Little Rock asked for and obtained a ruling by a Federal District Judge for a postponement of the disgraceful integration farce in their public schools for two and a half years, Sen­ator Paul Douglas of Ilinois is quoted in the press as having said: "I never understood that mob violence took precedence over the law of the United Slates." Is that so? Then, obviously, the Senator from lllinois has never heard of labor unions and the manner in which they have operated in defiance of "the Jaw of the United States" for almost a quarter century. Plainly he does not know of the instances in his own City of Chicago where labor union thugs have beaten up, multilated and maimed for life those who dared to go to their jobs during a strike called by labor racketeers while officials of "the law of the United States" stood by and did nothing. Apparently he has never heard of the Kohler strike in Wisconsin where labor union goons hurled bombs in the windows of homes owned by those whose only crime was that they wanted to work and who merci­lessly clobbered men and women alike who dared cross the picket line; and a ll th is with the connivance of men from the Governor on down who looked the other way instead of stepping in and upholding "the law ot the United States." Nor has he been told about the case in Indiana where striking crim· inals of a labor union shot a six-month old baby in the head as it lay in the cradle because the mother and father dared to defy an order to quit the jobs they both needed in order to live and support their child, while those charged with the duty of upholding "the law of the United States" have taken no action to this day to punish the culprits. Has the Senator never heard of these and thousands of similar cases where "the law of the United States" meant less than nothing to union mobsters as they crippled, blinded and killed those who got in the way of their murderous plans? And above all, hasn't the Senator ever heard of members of the Senate and House of the American Congress who swore, on taking office, to defend "the Jaw of the United States" but who have been subsidized by campaign contributions from labor racketeers until they don't dare raise their voice, or vote, for measures which would restrict labor union officials from committing theft, embezzlement and extortion which vio· late "the law of the United States"? Perhaps, like the President who recently defined the difference be· tween a "gift and a bribe," the Senator regards the actions of segrega­tionists as ''mob violence" and crimes committed by labor union goons as a peaceful protest in defense of their rights. lf the Senator would chisel open his closed mind, he would be able to understand that not many days have passed since the old Wagner Labor Relations Act "\Vas passed that "mob violence" has not "taken precedence over the law of the United States.'' ington May 16-18, Americans for Democratic Action-an outfit which insists until it is blue in the face that it is anti-Communist­called for the immediate diplomatic recognition of Red China, for the immediate cessation of nuclear tests by the United States and for vigorous action by the President and the Congress to end segrega­tion of the races. Resolutions were also passed which were critical of the McClel­lan Committee which is exposing theft and corruption in labor unions, condemned the Jenner bill which seeks to prevent the Su­preme Court from freeing all con­victed Communists and called for a re-examination of the cases of all government employes charged with disloyalty to their country. If this action is indicative ot "anti-Communist" sentiment in the ADA, it makes us shudder to con­template what they might have de ... rnanded if they had been "pro­Communist." That ADA would try to maintain the fiction that it is "anti-Commu­nist" is perfectly natural as a pro­tection from exposure of its true purposes, but that many Americans would accept this self-evalua tion is a sad commentary on their in telli­gence. The pin-up girl of the Convention was Eleanor Roosevelt and though apparently she wasn't present, a special Convention Journal ded i ~ ca ted to this Pink Lady was a c~ cepted by her son James who rep­resents, among other things, a Con­gressional district in the colored section of Los Angeles in the Con­gress of the United Stales. Star speakers on the occasion were Senator Paul Douglas of Illi~ nois, Senator Hubert H. Humphrey of Minnesota and ex-Senator Her­bert Lehman of New York. A few names gleaned at random as being present, or members of the outfit, were: Louis Lubin, Rob~ ert R. Nathan, Carl Auerbach. Max Greenberg, Bentley Kassal, Peter Odegard, Irving Rosenblatt, Rich­ard C. Sachs, Louis B. Schwartz, Reginald Zalles, Leon Keysterling, Joseph L. Rauh, Jr., James Wechs­ler, Alexander Lowenthal and David Ginsburg. Also, there was one man named Smith-L. M. C. Smith of Phila-delphia. _ _ _ From a former me1nber of the South Carolina Legislature: "To me one of the greatest mysteries of the century is that yOu not only seem to be able to read the inner­most minds of crooked politicians but to translate your conclusions into the most hilarious language." Here's another direct result of reciprocal trade agreements; Five years ·ago we gave England the money to purchase a stockpile of metals. England used the money to buy lead and zinc and began to dump the metals on the United States market, at six cents per pound under the domestic price. Today practically all lead and zinc mines in the United States are closed. Boy, what great stntesmen rep1·esent us in Wasb.ington! July-August, 1958 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE PaqeS United Nations Maintains Its Unbroken Record Of Failure White Russian Says Communists Out To Control The Whole World All informed Americans have --------­lmown from the beginning that the United Nations is not worth its salt as an agency for peace, for quell­ing uprisings and ironing out the trouble spots of the world. It would seem, however, that its most ardent cham¢ons among One­Worlders would be convinced of its utter futility after its abject failure in the recent Hungary sit­uation. Although they are members of this great "Peace and Humanitar­ian" organization Soviet Russia and Communist Hungary perform­ed like the barbarians they are when they executed former Hun­garian Premier, lmre Nagy and three other leaders of the Hungar­Ian revolt after mock trials in Bud­apest. Officials of the American State Department and those of other Western countries made a great hue and cry over the incident and called on the United Nations to do something about it immediately if not sooner. Mr. Dag Hammersjkold, Direct· or General of the U. N. sent a dele­gation to Hungary to "protest" the execution and to get information concerning it for further action by the U.N. Lazlo Gyaros, one of the thugs who acted as official spokesman for the Hungarian government, laughed in the faces of the delega­tion, insul ted them and did every­t hing except order them out of the country. He told them that action by the U. N. in the matter was "interference in the domestic af­fairs of Hungary': and that he would give them nothing. There was nothing for the mem­bers of the delegation to do but pick up their marbles and go home. The Hungarian case is typical of the performances of the United Nations since it was set up by Al­ger Hiss and his associates in the State Department under the super­vision of Joe Stalin as a propaganda organization for One-World Gov­ernment and it will never be any different. But watch members of Congress shell out and vote appropriations of American taxpayers' money to sustain the rotten thing when it is time to again vote on the matter. Almost 300 textile mills in the United States have been closed down as a result of the reciprocal trade agreements by which Japan is permitted to send textiles, pro~ duced ~ cheap labor, into this country to compete with domestic workers. Ain't we got statesman­ship? It is claimed by some authorities that Progressive Education whose objective is to reconstruct society along Marxist lines is gradually being eliminated from the text­books of the American schools but "gradually" is not fast enough if the future generation is to be saved.

Since we know that nothing ever happens any more and that every· thing is planned, it is easy to visualize the ghoulish glee of World Planners in inducing an American Congress to once more play their game.

APPEARS IN CONGRESSIONAL RECORD On June 11 the Congressional Record, on page 9728, carried an editorial from the Southern Con­servative discussing the wonderful book of Senator George W. Malone of Nevada titled Mainline which tears to shreds the argument that the Reciprocal Trade Agreement Act is beneficial to American pro­ducers. The Editorial appeared in the February, 1958 edition of the South­ern Conservative and is the fourth one from our paper to make its ap­pearance in the Congressional Rec­ord. Two of them were inserted in that publication in 1951 and the other was from our May, 1957 edi­tion of the paper on the death of Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin and was also included in the memorial book which the Senate published containing trib­utes to that great American patriot. We are very proud to have any· thing we write reproduced in the Record since it is thereby preserved for all time in the archives of Am­erican history. DUJ·ing the period from 1949- 54, following the betrayal of China to the Communists with the aid and assistance of the American State Department, the Red Chinese have, by the admission of Mao him­self, liquidated 800,000 citizens of that miserable country. In the eyes of certain characters in this country this should not bar them from being accepted into the Unit­ed Nations and perhaps they are right. After all, the number of helpless human beings the Soviets have liquidated is over a million and Russia is in the U. N. Bringing Mao ·s assassins into the outfit would make it just one big happy family of international murderers. Any pa-rent who does not believe that propaganda begins at the cradle should read some of the modern nursery rhyme books which have been re-vamped and tailored to make One-Worlders, In ternationalists and Mongrelizers out of tomorrow ·s citizens. Testifying before the House Com­mittee on Un·American Activities on April 7 of this year, Constantin W. Boldyreff, 48-year-old White Russian, and son of a Lieutenant General in the Czarist Army, said in part: "It there is to be a summit con­ference, then let us make it a good propaganda show and make sure that it results in a public and crush­ing disgrace to the Soviet bandits. Unless we are certain that this can be achieved, let us not embark into any negotiations at all. For such negotiations only disorient, embar­rass, and bewilder the active anti­Communists behind the Iron Cur· tain. "This is not a battle of nations against nations, but of a horrible machine of collectivism against every single living person in the _ world. ('The goal of the Free World is to preserve peace. The goal of inter· national communism is the exten­sion of Communist control over the whole world without resort to all· out war, if possible. For the Com­m~ nists, atomic war at this stage Wit~ the United States is too risky, besides, the internal situation in Russia and the satellite countries is anything but stable. "In this present conflict, the main eforts of each of the striving gov­ernments are mainly directed to in­fluence individual citizens of the opposing nation over the head of their own government in an at­tez: tpt t? capture their allegiance. ThiS enti rely new situation calls for propaganda weapons. "It is extremely important for Soviet citizens to Jearn the truth about the West, particularly about this country, to gain assurance that Americans are not their enemies. Our propaganda should be by the people, and for the people, not by bureaucrats to bureaucrats." Press releases from Washington _ say that although Justice Felix Frankfurter and Justice Hugo Black of the Supreme Court are eligible for retirement, since the former is 76 and the latter 72, they have no intention of doing so. Both have indicated their in~ tention .. of hanging on and per­haps it is just as well. While it is difficult to conceive of any one being appointed to the job who would do more damage to Consti­tutional Government or more ef­fectively help to tarnish the Court's reputation than these two, the present administration w o u l d manage to do just that. The give-away program in which money is taken from American taxpayers and given to Socialist Governments in foreign countries was first called the ltMarshall Plan." Its name has been changed several times but the program has now become a permanent arrange­ment. From this time forwm·d, Americans will be working to sup­port alien people, including the enemies of the United States. Think that over in your spare time! Pogo 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Court Comes To Bat Columnist Would Deny The Right For Reds Once More Of Patriots To Express Views Someday the Supreme Court may inadvertently make a ruling against Communists but so far their bat­ting average has been one hundred per cent in favor of those who are opposed to the American form of government and who regard the Kremlin as a model in governing machinery. Before going on vacation the high Court granted passports to Negro Paul Robeson and Corliss Lamont, both of whom have been refused passports for years because they refused to answer questions concerning their Communist affili­ation. "A passport cannot be withheld from a person because of his be­liefs or associations," the Court held. Presumably, these two charac~ ters are going to Russia to confer with their comrades in Moscow. Those who yell loudest for "hu­man rights" are the first ones to advocate the Federal government coming into a city, removing fam­ilies from the slums and ' 1urban renewing" the area. Have those who live in such sections no <~hu­man rights?" Are they to be moved around like pawns on a chess board? Maybe they don't want to move to a new ~ocation. Have the do-gooders ever thought of that? - ----- When Pericles the ruler of Ancient Athens started giving money and free gifts to the desti­tute people of that city, his per­sonal popularity was enhanced but the Athenian go~~ perished. The whole civilized world was amazed when the convention which wrote the American Con­stitution was able to frame a docu­ment that gave so much liberty to the people and so little power to the rulers. All that is changed now, however, and it is the other way around. As a result, there is turmoil throughout the world and we are always in a cold war or on the verge of a hot one. If our national leaders could only get it through their thick skulls that the founders of the American Republic had more brains, statesmanship and plain common sense in one little finger than all the current crop of poli­ticians put together, perhaps they would pay more heed to the pro­visions of the American Constitu­tion. Just as a stream can rise no 11 igher than its source so can no government become greater than the men who administer it. An action which would be a crime if indulged in by an individ­ual often becomes a virtue when participated in by collective indi­viduals in Cong1·ess. I One way to get even with Russia # is to send them Eleanor Roosevelt and Cyrus Eaton on one-way pass­ports and put up the bars against a.he1r return to this country. We don't believe it is possible for the average American who makes no attempt to keep himself informed of the network of sub­version which is enveloping this country, to understand how thoroughly anti~American senti­ment is rampant throughout the na~ tion. For instance, there are those in important positions who actually dispute the right · of American pat­riots to present their views to the public apparently on the theory that only left~wingers and Inter~ national Socialists are entitled to be heard. As an illustration we offer this instance: The Honorable George W. Ma­lone, one of the few able men who has sat in the United States Senate in recent years, incorporated into a book called "Mainline" all his knowledge and endless research on the disastrous effect of our foreign economic policies on American in~ dustry. This book was published by Long House of New Canaan, Con­necticut, and the first edition was exhausted within weeks of its ap­pearance. Some sponsor, realizing that there was much that members of Congress do not understand on the subject of economics, presented each member of both Houses with a copy of Mainline. Whereupon the ubiquitous Drew Pearson who has the dubious dis­tinction of having been called names which reflect on his ancestry so often that he has apparently come to accept the designation as authentic, charged in his column that this was an "anonymous" dis­tribution of literature to influence members of Congress to vote against the Reciprocal Trade Agree­ment. "The identity of ·the persons or organization mailing out this ex­pensive book remains a secret," Pearson wrote. "Some one is put­ting up the money- not Malone." What does it matter who put up the money to distribute a valuable document to members of Congress who prove almost daily their woe~ ful ignorance of the principles of a sound economy? Tons of literature is distributed to members of Congress during each session by the National Educa­tion Association, Ford Fund for the Republic, Committee for an Effec­tive Congress, Americans for Dem­ocratic Action, National Council of Churches, National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peo­ple, CIO~AFL and scores of other Socialist groups opposed to the American form of government and there is not a chirp out of Pearson. But let a sound, American docU~ ment make its appearance and he throws a hissy. Have we actually come to the point where the champions of Americanism are denied the right to speak their mind? The answer is YES. "A VICE BECOMES A VIRTUE" (St. Petersburg, Florida, Independent) . Ou~ so~ial planners who insist that the way to bring about racial mtegrat10n m schools, housing and other fields is to adopt a policy of "color blindness"-that is to insist that there is no such thing as racial consciousness-will find little support for the theory in a recent report by the Citizens' Housing and Planning Council of New York. A great effort has been made in New York City to force racial inte­gration in housing. Using the lever of federal aid, New York officials have torced the integration of public housing facilities. Some have gone further by supporting a proposed ordinance to make it illegal for the owner of private housing to refuse to rent facilities because of racial or religious grounds. The Council's report. however, indicates that the "color blind" policy is not working out. Integration is being defeated because white families are mcving out of public housing projects. Two housing projects were cited to show the change in occupancy. One opened in Brooklyn in 1939. At the time the racial composition was 98.7 per cent white and 1.3 per cent Negro. But as of Dec. 31 of last year, it had changed to 32.6 per cent white, 50.2 per cent Negro, and 17.2 per cent Puerto Rican. A second housing project in the Bronx was tenanted in 1953. • At that time the occupancy was 65.6 per cent white, 25.2 per cent Negro, and 9.2 per cent Puerto Rican. By the end of last year this had changed to 49.5 per cent white, 36.5 per cent Negro, and 15 per cent Puerto Rican. The Councjl while noting that the policy "was in the purest sense non-discriminatory" has failed to halt "a marked trend towards decrease in occupancy by white families in all projects." Now in an effort to insure a more even ratio among the races in public housing, the Council proposes that the "color blind" policy be abandoned. In its place they would substitute the practice of carefully selecting tenants to maintain a desirable ratio of the races. What this means, of course, is that prospective Negro and Puerto Rican tenants would be turned away in favor of white familes who might be willing to live in integrated housing. In other words racial discrimination, which the Council so right­eously opposes, seems to become a virtue when practiced in the holy name of racial integration. 1 his, we are supposed to believe, makes good sense. July-August, 1958 100,000 Group Meetings Would Get The Job Done If there is any way to save the American Republic from the claws of International Communism, we believe that it is through small group meetings of interested citi~ zens which are being held with in­creasing frequency and with en· larged attendance in many sections of the country. • Usually these groups meet in the homes of informed Americans who seek to make those in attendance thoroughly familiar with the im­portant issues on which members of Congress are to vote. The attendance is usually limited to ten or fifteen and each in turn is asked to hold similar meetings in their home with their neighbors and friends invited and in this way the circle can be extended to un­believable proportions. It has been estimated that it 100,000 such meetings were to take place in the homes of American patriots during a year, the political intelligence of the populace would be improved to such an extent that the moral complexion of Congress would be lifted to a level which would preclude the continued dom­ination of that body by left-wing­ers, One-Worlders and Internation .. al Communists. The idea back of the group meet· ings is that each one who attends them will, in his own way and his own words, communicate with his senators and representative and give them his own reaction to the various measures before Congress. The American people in their own interest, must never forget that their con~em in their repre­sentative does not end when they cast a ballot for him and that they must ride herd on him so long as he remains in office. It is just as unwise to leave a public servant unsupervised as it is to trust a small child alone in the pantry with the jam pot and the cookie jar. A raid will follow in either case. The course of wisdom is to look upon members of the House and of the Senate as not being quite bright -an assumption which has been confirmed recently by the majority in voting on foreign aid, reciprocal trade extension and the annexation of Alaska-and treat them as you would a retarded child who can't be left alone. Otherwise the sentinel work is going to be performed by highly organized and well financed sub­versive groups who are able to take up the vigil in Washington and stay on the job each session until their Communist objectives are achieved. One thing is for sure, members of Congress are being swayed and influenced by somebody and it had best be by unpaid, patriotic tax· payers who lobby by remote con· trol rather than by such on~the· spot professionals as the National Education Association, National Council of Churches, CIO-AFL, Americans for Democratic Action, National Association for the Ad­vancement of Colored People and a thousand other polygot outfits who are out to do the American Re· public ln. July-August, 1958 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE As If We Hadn't Heard We 1 d Like To See Him Drawing Enough of New Hampshire Unemployment Compensation Too G o r d o n M. Tiffany of New Hampshire, a protege of Sherman Adams of vicuna coat fame, was named by the President as Director of the Federal Civil Rights Com-mission. Since he had never been convict­ed of a felony nor accused of dope peddling, the Senate confirmed him although what he knows about racial relations in the South, in view of the fact that there are only 731 Negroes in New Hampshire, was not established. At any rate, this Tiffany indi­vidual kept still as a mouse while members of the Commission were assuring Southern members of the Senate that they would only go into voting rights of Negroes. After he was confirmed, how­ever, Tiffany broke out with a statement in the press to the effect that the Commission would also take up the matter of education and housing, although the legislation seUing up the Commission gives them no such authority. It is increasingly evident that dishonesty which has attended this infamous bill from the time Lyn­don Johnson threw in with the ene­mies of the South and by~passed the Eastland C o m m i t t e e and brought it directly to the Senate floor, will mark its progress at each step of the way. Like all small men armed with la rge power, these vest~poc ket dic­tators on the Civil Rights Com­.. mis ion may be expected to do the1r worst. As to this Tiffany person, it would be well if he could be given a nice vicuna coat and sent back to New Hampshire. "HEADS YOU WIN TAILS I LOSE" It looks like the State of New York is slated to have a millionaire Socialist as governor next time, re­gardless of which one of the two leading candidates are elected. Averill Harriman will run for a second term and Nelson Rockefel­ler has announced that he will make the race against him. Harriman calls himself a Demo­crat and Rockefeller likes to think of himself as a Republican, but Harriman is no D e m o c r a t ,and Rockefelier is no Republican. Both are International Socialists. Both have rendered yoeman's service to all types of Socialist projects advanced by New Deal, Fair Deal and Modern Republican administrations in Washington and neither has the remotest under­standing of the principles of Con­stitutional Government nor respect for the fundamentals underlying the American Republic. Both are strong proof of the claim that genius seldom repro­duces itself, their fathers and grandfathers having made the vast fortunes which they inherited with­out effort on their part and which they are spending in the interest of National and International Social­ism. With New York, it looks like it will be a case of "heads you win, tails I lose." Since we have no more respect for cheap and tawdry politicians than we have for bums in Skid Row, we got a kick out of one of Westbrook Pegler's recent columns in which he stripped Earl Warren right down to the bare hide. Going to Sacramento for his in­formation , Pegler revealed some surprising data about the legislat­ing Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and which has heretofore been generally unpublicized. Warren receives, as a member of the Supreme Court, $35,000 per year which is the highest salary he ever got in his life, according to Mr. Pegler, but that is only part of it. The State of California is paying him $12 ,101.88 per year in pension because he was once Governor of that State. That still isn't all. Re­cently Warren's henchmen in Cali­fornia were able to increase the pension which Warren will receive, beginning next January, from $12,- 000 per year to $16,000 per year. "Warren's henchmen in that State capital tried to fix things so that the public could not learn how much pension he is entitled to. But although they did establish 'sec­recy' this stealth was undone by a little proviso elsewhere which compels the comptroller to tell the truth. Nevertheless the California public has come to accept secrecy with dumb docility so this essay will probably be news to many Cal­ifornians," Pegler wrote. When it is considered that War­ren sucked the public teat in Cali· fornia thirty-nine years and has now latched on to the national ud­der which will sustain him for the balance of his life while enjoying a combined salary of $51 ,000 per year, the inescapable conclusion is that he is not doing so bad. Since he is an extremely medi­ocre lawyer and knows absolutely nothing about the Constitution and fundamental legal ethics, and is still trusted with the highest judici­al job in the land, it is clear that he has fared well under the American system which he so heartily des­pises and which he seeks to abolish by judicial dictum. Perhaps He 1 d Like To Put This Judge In A Concentration Camp How respect for Constitutional Government has diminished in the minds of those whose res ponsibil~ ity it is to uphold it is demonstrat­ed in the reaction of a member of Congress to the ruling of Judge Harry J. Lemley of Arkansas re­cently in which integration of the races jn the public schools of that State was postponed for two and a half years. Emanuel Cellar, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and of its sub-committee and one of the most extreme radicals ever sent to Congress from New York which seldom elects any other kind, has threatened to "investigate" this Southern judge whose decision, in the view of normal and responsi­ble persons, was in the best inter­ests of the people of his State. The wild·eyed Cellar pronounced the ruling "outrageous" and said hearings would be started by his Committee on the subject immedi­ately. "I shall cause careful scru­tiny to be made of the conditions out of which this decision arises," he snorted. When it is considered that men of Cellar's stature who would de­stroy our independent judiciary system, make up a majority of our legislative representation, it is not surprising that legislative action has reached the lowest ebb in the history of organized government. Leaders of the Methodist Cen­tral Conference meeting in Fort Worth said that the legalization of hor&e racing would be immoral and they were strongly opposed to it. But they held that mixing Negroes and Whites uin all rele­vant as~cU of our common life" was a goal of the church and there­fore umoral." T he President w ho is n ot given to visiting the nation's historic spots as a rule, made a trip to Mt. Vernon soon after the exposure of Sherman Adams as an influence peddler. While viewing a sword presented to George Washington he re111.arked in the presence of newspaper men that the bestowing of this gift on the First President of the United States occasioned no investigation by Congress. He is right but there was no occasion to inv-estigate in those days. The crooks of that time were either in jail or had been hanged from the limb of a dead tree. There were many comments on the decision of the Arkansas judge postponing integration of schools of that state for two and a half years but one of the soundest statements came from Senator Strom Thurmond of South Caro­lina who said: uThe damage done by the Federal action at Little Rock cannot be undone by this or any other decision but it is an indication that the Federal Court may have become wiser from this experience. I could never agree that the Federal Court has juris­diction over questions concerning education, since authority in the field of education was specifically reserved to the States in the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution." One could talk forever and not cover the situation any more fully than Senator Thurmond has in this brief summation. We tried to interpret the Presiw dent's explanation concerning the difference between an outright gift and a bribe but the best we could 'ln4ke of it is that when ¥ odern Republicaru receive it, it'.! a gift but when Fair Deal Democrat3 accept it, it's a bribe.

Juvenile Delinquency Inside The Church We believe that the most obscene and sacrilegious matter we have ever seen printed was that which appeared in Concern, the Voice of Methodist Youth. It was in the form of two take­offs or caricatures of the Lord's Prayer, one representing a teen-age version by teenagers of the First Church of Barstow, California, and the other, the adult version, writ· ten by the Rev. Jordan Detzer of Barstow, presumably pastor of the same church. We submit them without further comment.

Poge 8 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Screwball Envisions Utopia OPEN A TEXTILE BUSINESS IN Where Nobody Will Work INDONESIA AND GO TO TOWN We are sure that there are many wonderful Americans who live in If you are an ambitious American citizen and want to get into a Aspen, Colorado, but possibly be- lucmtive business, just make application to the American State Depart­cause of the inviting climate or ment and obliging gents in that agency will fix you up. something, it has become a unut Of course if you have any silly idea that you love your own country haven" and seems to draw left- and want to be identified with it for the balance of your life and raise wingers, one-worlders and other your children here, then you're not the boy for the State Department. off-beat characters like black-strap molasses attracts files. The latest is the Aspen Summer Institute Lecture Series which was addressed by one Mortimer Adler who blossomed forth with a new social theory that has even Karl Marx backed right off the boards. In this addle-pated Socialist's view, work is degrading and undig­nified and those who engage in it are slaves. He made it clear that only fools are guilty of performing manual labor. "Leisure work is the only form of work which has dignity," he told his audience. "What can be done by a machine or an animal is not dignified. Any one totally depend­ent upon the will of his employer is a slave." He predicted that the "good life" Jn which nobody will tum a hand to support himself, is coming with a "second great revolution" which will bring about the "dispersal of capital so that all people are own­ers." His mission, he indicated, is to help bring about a situation in which "toil is eliminated from life." ) As might be expected, this ide-ologically perverted specimen spent a large portion of his life holed up in an institution of learning-the 1 University of Chicago-where he 1 taught his Socialist theories to his classes. j Since Adler was addressing off-beat characters like himself at As- ~~~ ~~g~:;tt~~¥~a~:r~r~f '7t~s d~h:t newspapers - who are a I ways ready to publicize and glorify those who are opposed to the American form of government - carried a picture of Adler on their front pages in which he was pictured not as a nut but as a "philosopher" who had presented "culture en­thusiasts" with a "new vision of Utopia." How much better to have pre­sented him as the ridiculous figure he is or to have ignored him alto­gether. In an address in Cleveland, Ohio, October 28th, 1945, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Adler Js reported to have said that in order to achieve real world govern­ment "we must do everything we can to abolish the United States .. . the only answer to the threat of atomic war is world government, complete relinquishment of United States and all other national sove­reignties." On a University of Chicago _ Round Table broadcast, Adler ap­peared with Max Lerner and when Lerner made the statement: "We not only must abolish the national sovereignties .. . we must abolish reactionary capitalism . . . we must have a genuine Socialism before we can have peace" Adler is reported to have said: "I would go with you on that." Some "philosopher." If, however, you would like to move to Indonesia , open up a busi­ness and operate it under a pro·Communist government, you're as good as there. On Junp 22, the Honorable Clarence Manion of South Bend, Indiana, introduced on his radio program Mr. William J . Erwin, chairman of the Foreign Trade Committee of the American Cotton Manufacturers In_sti­tute who produced documentary evidence which would seem to conf1rm the above claims. Mr. Erwin read over the air a letter from one Mr. Nathaniel Rafter of the International Cooperation Administration in the Department of State to the American Cotton Manufacturers Institute in which he said: "Confirming my comments of this morning, I wish to reiterate the ICA is prepared to render many forms of assistance to any one or more or your members who may be interested in establishing textile plants in Indonesia. If any of them are interested in such an investment we be­lieve it would be preferable for the investment to be in the form of a joint venture with Indonesians as far as the equity is concerned. "ICA would be prepared to make loans from its New Development Loan Fund. We would also be prepared to insure such investments agaillst the political risks of expropriation , inconvertibility of currency and w~r damage. Furthermore, we would furni sh technical assistance by financing on-the-job training in Indonesia, or training he re in America for Indonesians, in technical and managerial skill. "We also might be able to finance the installation of public facilities such '\s power, transportation, etc., if not otherwise available near de­sirable plant sites. These and other possible means of ICA assistance could be discussed in detail with any of your members who might be interested." So step right up, boys, and get in line. The ICA of the State De­partment will not only subsidize your business, "handle all details for you and underwrite your losses but they will also provide you with a nice, fat , greasy Indonesian as a partner. If you are a textile manufacturer ln the United States and have had the daylights shot out of your business by the Reciprocal Trade Agree­ments Act, don't just sit around and suck your thumb. Here's the chance to recoup your losses. Become a citizen of Indonesia and thereby be assured that the American government will take care of you, finance your business and guarantee you against loss-something they couldn't think of doing so long as you are a resident ot this country. Your trouble is that" you are just a stupid American. So get wise; move to Indonesia and you've got it made. Attaches or the State Department may be drips as diplomats and complete flops at representing this country in the capitals of the world but when it comes to acting as public relations agents for foreign nations and boosting their industries and plugging their investments, they're right on the ball. Ther&fore, your best bet is to transfer your allegiance to Mr. Su­karno' .<~ government, get subsidized by the American State Department, move your family into a nice python-proof cottage Jn the jungle and you're ready for business. Of course your children may have to play with naked savages and go to school with junior head-hunters but this will be a valuable lesson in Universal Brotherhood and will prepare them for their future status as Citizens or the World. So, it your business is shot, if you're losing all your customers to the Japanese and taxes are eating you out of house and home, think nothing or it. Just move to Indonesia and you can't miss. It's So Sad We Could Just Sit Right Down On The Curb And Cry The Highlander Folk School, a Communist institution at Mont­eagle, Tennessee, was recently visited by Eleanor Roosevelt who, according to her column, spent a very happy day there in congenial surroundings. She was distressed, however, be­cause of the reputation the school has earned for harboring Commu­nists of all colors and kinds, and expressed her regret in these words: "This school, because it does hold integrated meetings and fre­quently the workshops are on labor problems, has often been accused of being Communist. "I saw no evidence that suggest­ed Communist influence but I thought these were courageous people attempting to show that we could do here at home what ye are trying to do in the world, name· ly to live together In peace regard­less of race or creed. "It is sad that we still use the label of 'Communist' for anything we dislike or do not understand." It is so sad that it just about breaks our heart. Boo hoot July-August, 1958 Johnston Pleads Cause Of Obscene Motion Pictures Mr. Eric Johnston, President of the Motion Picture AssoCiation of America, is a man of many parts. It matters not whether a New Deal, Fair Deal or Modern Repub .. lican is the occupant of tite White House, when any dirty work needs to be done or the public mind slugged into insensibilty prepara .. tory to a big raid on the treasury. this little man from the West Coast comes to bat. In the Big Steal of taxpayers' money to send to alien countries, including enemy territory, it was Johnston who was called on to put on a barn-storming and brain-wash· ing campaign to induce stupid citi .. zens to line up behind this pro· posal. No one knows how much the campaign cost or who pu t up the money for the big ballyhoo except that it goes without saying that, in the final analysis, the taxpayers at .. ways finance any movement calcu .. lated to seal their own doom. Johnston's latest caper was not political but rather in the interest of improving "cultural" conditions in the United States. This took the form of an address to 4,000 delegates to the American Home Economics Association hold­ing its 49th annual convention in Philadelphia where Johnston made a plea for the abolishment of cen· sorship in movies and the right to exhibit obscene films to the ymmg peoole of the nation. "The voice of the censor is not the voice of a democracy unafraid of itself," was Johnston's profound observation. "What sort of society is it that will raid a book store or condemn as public enemies such men as .Hemingway and Faulkner, O'Hara and Steinbeck, Joyce and O'Neil," he added in mentioning the names of some ot those whose vulgar productions have shocked the nation while piling up wealth for the movie czars who pay John .. ston to represent them. A self-admitted authority on everything, Johnston next tackled the· schools and told what was wrong with them. "And take the schools." he admonished his audi ... ence. "Think of the drive toward safe schools for our children! Safe schools! What can they mean? A school where independent thinking is an offense, where dfssent and protest are throttled, where the in· quiring mind is greeted by the off­limits sign? That isn't a safe school. That's a mausoleum." Having delivered himself of this defense of Progressive Education, .Johnston warned his listeners that "Americans should be aware of what is happening to them before It is too late," to which we say, .. Amen," but we don't mean what Mr. Johnston does.
