Transcript THE SOUTHERN. CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 5 Fort Worth, Texas, April, 1954 No.4 The Fight on McCarthy Develops Into a Test Of Communist Strength in the United States U.N. Officials Enjoy Immunity From Punishment For All Crimes Including Murder and Treason According to a strict interpretation of the United Nations Charter, any person connected with that world group can commit any crime includ­ing murder and treason and they will have immunity from arrest or punish­ment by the authorities in the country where such crime may be committed. In granting immunity to members of Congrc>ss, the American Constitu­tion snys that such members ''shall in o 11 cases except Treason, Felony and Breach o.f the Peace, be privileged frmn arres t." But in the case of the United Na ­t ions, there a1·e no exceptions and it is clearly provided that all officials "together with their spouses a nd rela­tives'' shall enjoy total immunity "in accordance with international law.'' In other words, the sky is the limit and the lid is off. A delegate to the United Nations from one of the Iron Curtain coun~ t ries, for instance, could bring in a time·bomb in his suit case since the Charter provides not only immunity from personal arrest for U. N. of· f icials, "their spouses and rel atives' ' but also gives them immunity f rom ';seizure of the ir personal baggage.'' While he was holding forth in the United Nations and calling the United States every d irty name in the calen· dar, his old lady could take the bomb down to Washington and plant it under the Capitol and it would be just one on us. Nothing could be done about it. In the meantime Cousin Igor Son­ovawitch could slip out and blow up the Brooklyn Bridge and thumb his nose at the cops who tried to arrest him. What fools we mortals be. During one year, three hundred and seventeen witnesses before in~ vestigating committees of Con4 gress probing Communist activi­ties. have refused to answer ques~ tions and have taken refuge be­hind the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution. The Experts Will Get You If You Don't Watch Out At the prospect of· the orgat1iza­tion of the new "Pacific Group of Nations'' hatched up by Dulles, in co11aboration with other sla~J-hap~ py internationalists, we can just see the world experts twil.ching like a cow's tail flicking o. heel fly, as they contemplate the potential rich pickings in the South Seas. Although the actual Organiza~ tion is still just a gleam in a diplo­mat's eye, these experts probably already have their brief cases packed and are all set for ac tion. The happy island people out there who have been left free i.o live their own care-free lives as they see fit, don't know what they're in for. They are blissfully ignorant of the hordes of humanitarians and do-gooders who will swarm over them in the wake of a miniature United Nations a nd who will un­dertake to make them over from stem to stern. If they know what's good for them, they will take to the tallest cocoanut tree they can find and h ide in its branches where the pro­fessional reformers can't find them. It Looks Like Lattimore Will Slip Through the Net Nothing has been heard lately of the trial of Owen Lattimore indicted for lying under oath to an investi­gating committee of Congress con4 cerning his activities in connection with his State Department mission in China. His trial was postponed once but it was not our understanding that it was put off indefinitely, and it seems high time that something was done about it. This slippery character has a lot of pull in a lot of places and perhaps the idea is that it will drag on and on and the American people will for­get it. And they probably will. The objectives of committee probes into subversion have been all but forgotten and considerations involving national security have been tossed overboard as the enemies of America's ace defender close in for the k ill. With a deter­mined and coordina ted e ffort which sends thrills of joy coursing t hrough the Kremlin, o rganized subversive forces in this co untry a re demonstra ting that their sole interest lies in d estroying the Wisconsin senator and that the safety of the Republic is of minor concern. It isn 't too important now whether any American, individually, does or does not like Senator Joseph R. McCarthy and even criticism of his "methods" is beside the point. We are face to face with a situation not of our choosing which known enemies of Americanism have built up with the lines clearly drawn and where there is no middle-ground or half-way station in which the faint-hearted may take refuge. On the one side is a duly elected United States senator and his as­socia tes who have been mercilessly delving in to Communist pene tration of the government, the army and defense plants where Russia's inter­ests are effectively served by t he planting ef her agents in strategic posts. On the other side are organized a nti-American forces whose sym4 pathy toward the Soviet system as opposed to the American form of government. is a matter of record in the form of pronouncements, res4 elutions, political action and affiliation with Communist fronts. These domestic subversives, in tacit· collaboration with alien con­spirators, have maneuvered a situation made to order where the Wis­consin senator must either be supported or repudiated by the American people and the result will accurately measure the strength or weakness of Communist influence in the United States. · It is plainly and indisputably an issue of Communism versus Amer­icanism and an ideological victory for the Soviets will give direction and meaning to their long-range plans for the ultimate conquest of a country they half fear , partially envy and wholly despise. The fo rces to which we refer as- spearheading the attack on McCarthy and serving as an uno1fficial liaison with Moscow in the fight against him are a group of super-liberals, a little to the Left of Lenin, known as Americans for Democratic Action who have long served, collectively, as a transmission belt for the dissemination of anti-American sentiment in the United States and whose individual names are liberally sprinkled among the files of the committees of Congress investigating Communist activities in this country. On every occasion when Communist ideologies have come in conflict with established American ideals and traditions, ADA has, without • exception, unhesitatingly lined up on the side of their Soviet soul mates, including a strong denunciation of attempts to outlaw the Com­munist P arty, designation of the un-American Activities Committee of Congress as 11a threat to freedom of political opinion", opposition to loyalty tests and advocacy of the teaching of Communism in American schools. Closely allied with ADA and supporting its program are minority group organizations whose smear operations and terrorist tactics closely parallel those of the Sicilian Maffia and the Corsican Camorra; sub­versive church councils, labor union leaders, fifth-amendment Amer­icans, Socialist college professors, left-wing preachers and other do4 mestic Quislings who constitute the fifth column in this country ded­icated to the peaceful overthrow of the American form of government. (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It Pogo 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Apra, 1954 Addled Adolescents Do Their Stuff As the Puppets of Mature Liberals Some soft-headed sophomores at the University of Texas, perform­ing in the typical manner of Marx­infested adolescents, got together quite a number of names of stu­dents on a petition protesting the appearance of Senator Joseph R. McCarthy as guest speaker at San Jacinto Day ceremonies in Hous­ton April21. A couple of the youngsters trotted over to Houston and pre­sented the petition to Mr. H. R. Cullen, Houston's leading citizen who, in collaboration with a patri­otic group, invited Senator McCar­thy to make the address. Mr. Cullen, displaying a kindly tolerance and understanding of misguided, groping and con_fused youthful minds, gently but firmly informed the boys that Senator McCarthy would speak as schedul­ed and courteously dismissed the lads who meekly journeyed back to Austin to report to wh'oever it was that was directing their ac~ tivities. Nobody Is Surprised That Chavez Is Not Tossed Out The gesture toward the investiga­tion of irregularities in connection with the election of Senator Dennis Chavez ot New Mexico and the sub­sequent motions which the Senate went through in deciding whether or not to allow him to hold his seat, constituted one of those big jokes which periodically occur on the floor of the Upper House. According to the Constitution, of course, the Senate is the final judge in such matters and while they solemn­ly appear to weigh the evidence in cases of irregular and corrupt elec­tions the senator involved seldom, if ever, gets tossed out. In 1948, for example, a Texas Sena­tor was seated with practically no opposition even though he had lost the election in a fair contest and was only enabled to win through post­election manipulation of a notorious South Texas political boss who came up !ive days later with enough votes of dead men to put the senator over. It was claimed that in the case of Senator Chavez, he had no knowledge of the crookedness which went on in the New Mexico election in his behaJf although this is difficult to believe. But the point is not whether Sena­tor Chavez was or was not a party to the irregularities at the polls but that the senator involved always receives the benefit of the doubt because the party to which he belongs nee:ls his vote. Of course the day will come when most of these mentally im­mature students-who were prob­ably only being used as messen­ger boys by more experienced "lib­erals"- will become good and use­ful citizens in spite of any handi­cap they may suffer in the way of subversive influence now. \¥hen they marry, have children Even if he had been proved guilty of their own struggle with a budg- of murdering his grandmother, the et and are forced to cope with senator would have been seated and the practical pro~lems ~f. raising all the to-do about the matter was so a family and makmg .a livmg, the much baloney. majority of them w1U get some The vote to allow Chavez to retain sense knocked into their empty his seat was along strict party lines heads.

Knowledge, understanding and appreciation of our glorious Amer­ican system of governmen~ an~ th_e imperative need to mamt~m 1t against efforts of Commumsts to destroy it, is something they have not learned from their text books. Pride of country, allegiance to the American Flag and loyalty to the Republic for which it stands are. unfortunately, not attribu!es which are conferred along wtth their diploma and can only be ac­quired after their fou~-y~ar period of infiltration by Socialist college professors has been ·strick~n from their memory and passed mto the limbo Q{ forgotten tl1ings. To the everlasting shame of apathetic American parents who have permitted subversive teac~­ers and ministers to shape their children's econoll)ic and social thinking, we are producing a generation of youn~ste.rs .who automatically and mstmchvely line up on the side of Communism when this ideology comes in con­flict with Americanism, just as the Austin students did. "It is a strange situation that we in the Senate should be called upon to vote upon a treaty which barters away the inalienable Con­stitutional rights of American sol­diers on foreign soil. Of all the ,eople wh~m we ought to protect in their inalienable rights guaran­teed by the Constitution to all American citizens, are the men who wear the uniform of our coun­try and who are pledged to defend these principles with their lives. Yet for the first time so far as I know, the Senate is asked to bar­ter away these rights of Americans in uniform . .,-Senator John W. Bricker's warning to his colleagues when NATO was up for ratifica­tion by the Senate. With the defeat of the Fair Deal administration Americans hoped that the people would be told the truth about Social Security and that this legalized extortion racket would be exposed. Instead it is being "broad­ened" and more "benefits" voted. In­stead of Truman and Ewing pleading for this Socialist project, we now have Eisenhower and Hobby. The words are the same. The voices are differ­ent. Recommended Reading for Those Who Have a Couple of Lifetimes to Spare Some of our readers, understand~ ably enough, found it hard to believe our assertion last month that ten thousand executive agreements and other international agreements, aside from treaties, have been entered into with foreign countries between 1945 and the close of 1954. Ii they want to look it up for them4 selves they can confirm it, but it is a tough assignment and we don't recom4 mend this procedure to any one unless they have the patience of Job and the tenacity of a Boston bull dog. They will likely be told by any member of Congress to whom they appeal, that such member does not know of any such compilation of the~ records in matters concerning execu­tive agreements and he will be telling the truth. He has probably never seen it or heard of it. These agreements are compiled into twenty volumes called "Statutes at Large" and it required 80,000 pages to cover them. They will likely be found in larg,e libraries or in the library of universi-ties, and especially "liberal" univer .. sities. The vast majority of these agree .. ments and international commitments are routine, innocuous and harmless but buried in among them are many which are not in this classification including agreements not known to exist which could be invoked by the United Nations when World Govern­ment is finally perfected to the point where they have us on the hook and they get ready to crack down. The point was originally raised by us to indicate the potential danger of government by treaty law and execu­tive agreements when it is finally established that these agreements supersede our Constitution, and not to draw attention to any particular one of them. We didn't have the two lifetimes to spare which would be necessary if one decided to read them. all and find out just what commitments the White House and the Department of State have made from 1945 up to now, but they are all there if any one wants to tackle the job of reading eighty thousand pages. FIGHT- (Continued From Page 1) Lined up with them also are some new recruits in Wisconsin com­posed of shady characters dredged up from the political sewers of that State to whom ADA is furnishing thousands of <!ollars for the circulat­ion of reviling and vicious magazines and newspapers prepared express· ly for the purpose of halting McCarthy's unrelenting fight against Soviet agents in the United States. Dovetailing in with the overall conspiracy to get McCarthy are the planned insults and slights by high administration officials not direct- _ ly affiliated with ADA but who are scorched with jealous resentment because the Wisconsin senator has come to out-rank them·in the respect, hearts and affections of millions of the American people. All in all, the McCarthy opposition presents an imposing array of hostility, compounded of personalities antagonistic to each other but un· divided in their animosity toward a champion crusader against saba .. tage-and all of them subversive so far as their unquestioned loyalty to the American Republic is concerned. In fact, a significant circumstance that must be evident to any in .. formed appraiser of the situation is that among the thousands who are publicly lined up against McCarthy, there is not one single individual with undivided allegiance to this country or who has ever once come out openly, boldly and unreservedly for the safety, security and defense of the United States without expressing equal concern for the welfare of the people of foreign lands. . . All this organized antagonism and disregard of Amencan secu~1ty must be faced not only by Senator McCarthy but by every respons1ble American as he lines up on one side or the other. The personalities involved have ceased to be of moment. . . This country could well do without Americans for Democratic Action and the infamous horde of subversives who have drifted to the surface in its backwash. It could even survive without the service of Senator McCarthy but ~:~i~~~~~~~ ~!~~0!o1~~g d~~~:~eiti~n~n e~~~~~dt0h~~~ !~~k~~~z~~s d~~: troy it. In t~is tragic national crisis, every American must either st~nd with the Umted States and McCarthy or with its enemies and Amencans for Democratic Action. We note that a new column is appearing in some daily news­papers. throughout the country but there 1s not much likelihood that Americanism will get a shot in the ~rm as a ~esult o~ this late entry mto the f1eld of JOurnalism. The column is written by E. Stanley Jones once cited as a member of the notorious American League for Peace and Democracy, described by the un-American Activities Committee of Congress as "the largest of the Communist front movements in the United States" and as "nothing more nor less than a bold advocate of treason". Jones is also author of many books ad­vocating the abolishment of the American Free Enterprise system in favor of National Socialism. We need more columnists of that type like we need two heads. April, 1954 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page l United Nations Is Our 'War Preventer' So What's Tennessean Gives Example We Haven't Got the Votes Keeping Them From Settling the Indochina Affair? Of Americanism in Action To Outlaw Communist Party Every American who still thinks that the United Nations is going to "combat aggression, prevent war and insure peace" will now please stand on his head. For years, we have had it dinned into our ears that our only salva­tion lay in this world organization which would swoop down on ag­gressor nations like a hawk on a Plymouth Rock chicken. What we poor, stupid dupes didn 't know was that they had their fingers crossed and they meant they would check ag­gression in every case except where Communists were the ag­gressor. Recently Dag Hammarskjold, Secretary-General of the United Nations, made a speech to the N a­tional Press Club in Washington in which he made it clear that the United Nations was not about to do anything in Indochina and said there is no " urgency in the situa­tion there." A week later the vice president of the United States took the mi­crophone. He didn't point out to his fellow Americans the utter. abject and miserable failure of the United Nations to crack down on the aggressors in Indochina. He meekly predicted that the United States may have to Htake over -the battle in Indochina if the French pull out.'' Well. what are we paying the United Nations for? American tax­payers have been bleCl white to keep this treason-ridden gang of one worlders operating in luxury rivalin.g that of mediaeval kings and at the first opportunity to repel aggression, they calmly an­nounce they will do nothing. Good Americans wouldn't mind even going ragged to pav the taxes to support an organization which would prevent war and keep a new crop of young boys from beint4 killed off every few years but it is our guess that they are going to rebel at paying the United Na­tions to keep us out of war and, at the same time. sending their sons to die in wars the United Na­tions didn't even try to prevent. \Vith eve:rv d:iy's delav in voting the United s ·tates out of the UnHed Nations, members of the Senate are compounding the act of treason they committed in 1945 when they voted us into it. Government officials seem to be taking every means available to them for deporting Dick Haymes and while they are to be com­mended for doing their duty, why, we wonder, were they not equally aggressive in their efforts to deport Harry Bridges? From where we sit, it looks like some­body who is powerful wanted Harry Bridges to stay while some­body equally powerful wants Haymes to go. Along with investigations, scan­dals and rumors of war the names of a Dominican playboy and a Hungarian adventuress have oc­cupied the headlines. It is rumored that they will wind up their trip to Europe by marrying each other and we hope they do. It would ser\'e them right. The Marshall Housewives May Be Down But Not Out You can't beat the Marshall Housewives. Although t h e y h a v e been slapped down several times by Federal judges who see nothing wrong with a Socialist law on the statute books of a Constitutional Republic, they are still undaunted. They now have a new plan to suggest to replace the compulsory old-age benefit program. Their plan would hroaden the Social Security act to ccver all who wish to be covered by social security insurance but they would remove the compulsion and let only those Americans participate who wanted to and they would let those persons pay their own tax. It seems a reasonable demand, but there is the drawback that reason and common sense play no part in legislative enactments in our modern economy. They propose to present their plan to the Ways and Means Com­mittee of the House and to the De­partment of Public Health. Educa­tion and Welfare although it is clear that they exoect 1itlle en­courage:: mE'nt from the latter agen­cy of which Ovcta Hobby is Secre­tary. In a Jetter to Mrs. Hobby they noted that she had presented a plan to the Committee for broad­ening the Social Security act but complained that the press story reportint{ the event carried only a description of what she wore and gave only vague reference to what she advocates. In other words. they don't care anything about her hat. They are interested in what's under it. The State Department Is Still Loaded With Reds Spruillc Braden, former assistant Secretary of State who tried unsuc­cessfully in 1045 to persuade Dean Acheson to fir' the Reds in that agen­cy, said in a recent Associated Press interview that a bunch of young So­viets are still there and helping to shape our foreign policies. This is not exactly news to most of us but now that an official who was closely associated with that de­partment for years had publicly charged that the agency is still full of subversives. perhaps action will be forced on Dulles for their removal. We have said it so much that it probably sounds like nagging but we insist that history will vindicate our contention that the. only difference between Acheson and Dulles is a mustache. The words "Democracy" and "Democratic" are nowhere to be found in the Constitution of the United States. These terms were coined by Socialists and were pick­ed up and repeated by dim-wits who do not realize that ours is a Republic and not a Democracy. Over in Nashville, Tennessee, there is a grand organization called the Southern States Industrial Council which carries on a never-ending and vigorous fight against National So­cialism.

Recentll, ~,ftc:- a t!irPc ~ h:t O'l 1 \• A by Mr. Sensing, George Dempster president of Dempster Brothers of Knoxville publicly announced that he was taking his membership out of The Southern States Industrial Coun­cil because of Mr. Sensing's attack on TVA. Incidentally, Dempster is president of an outfit called Citizens for TVA, a public power lobby whose objec­tive is to cover up the fact that TVA is losing millions of dollars for Ameri­can taxpayers and to promote the fantastic idea that this Socialist proj­ect provides cheaper power At this 'point, Mr. A. G. Heinsohn, Jr., president of Cherokee Mills of Knoxville, and one of the most out­standing industrialists in the Volun­teer State entered the picture. He informed the Southern Stales Industrial Council that he would pay that organization four times the amount of the loss suf{ercd by the withdrawal of Dempster's member­ship in the Council. For good measUt·e, he added: "This incident gives me the oppor­tunity to prove that those politicians who crawl on thCir bellies to Wa~h­ington and cravenly beg Cor special favors, do not represent all the citizens of this area. "Some of us, including the under­signed of Southern birth and Con­federate ancestry, refuse to sell our souls for a cut-rate power bill. Some of us still believe in God. in the Con­stitution as it was originally written and in our own efforts. "We do not want to depend on the ability of local politicians to pick the pockets o( citizens of othrr States in order to give us cheap power. We prefer to stand on our own feet and to maintain our sell-respect as decent Americans. '·I( you will be kind enough to let me know the do1lars and cents loss that your association will suffer be­cause o[ the withdrawal of Dempster Brothers, I will be delighted to send you a check for four limes that amount. Permit me to double and re­double for the sake of separating the sheep from the goals, the boys from the men and the New Deal rats (rom real Americans." Any comment on Mr. Heinsohn's fine gesture o! Americanism would be canying coal to Pittsburgh. We learn from a responsible source that a vigorous and organ­ized effort is to be made in Dallas to return control of Southern Methodist University to the Meth­odists. However, in view of offi­cial Methodist policy which is so completely in accord with that of the group now directing affairs of the school, we do not anticipate that any great difference in its ad­ministration will be noted. There is a lot of discussion pe-­rennially going on as to whether or not Congress should pass a bill to outlaw the Communist Party in this country. Any such conjecture is merely academic and a waste of valuable time on the part of those who in­dulge in it. The cold-blooded truth is that it is not possible for any measure to be passed by our national law­making body outlawing Commu4 nists or to any great extent throt4 tling their activities in this coun­try. The Soviets have too many powerful groups in this country who are in sympathy with their ideologies to permit any such legis­lation to be passed and we had as well admit it. Any serious attempt to pass a measure through Congress which would make that party illegal would cause Americans for Demo­cratic Action, the National Coun­cil of Churches, Labor leaders, minority group smear organiza­tions, ministers, college professors, fifth-amendment Americans and other various and sundry subver­sives swarming into Washington like the seven-year locusts to pro­test and scream to high heaven against violation of Constitutional right~ and suppression of freedom of speech. Already more than two hun­dred anti- Communist bills have been introduced in Congress this session and, with the exception of a measure permitting wire-tap­ping by the FBI, they have no more chance of passage than a one­legged man has of winning a foot race. The very number of bills in­troduced will work against the passage of any. It is one of the favorite tricks of Communists to have confusing. conflicting and contradictory measureS introduced on subjects ·to which they are op­posed which usually results in no legislation being passed. This is not only true of Congress but of every State legi slature in the nation for Communist infil­tration of leaders has become so general that opposition to anti­subversive bills will spring up in­stantly in any State in the Union. Rank and file Americans are violently opposed to the vile Com­munist conspiracy to abolish the American form of government but they can't do much about it so long as those who formulate American policy throw in with the enemy. The answer would seem to be to either quit talking about out­lawing the Communist Party or get a new set of leaders from the bottom up. The United States has spent $3,500,000,000 in aid to Italy since the end of the second world war and Russia has not spent one red cent in that country, but it is generally conceded that the Itali­ans are fast turning Communist. All of which should prove to our soft-headed diplomats that you can't purchase friendship with dollars, Page 4 The Southern Conservative A MONTHLY PUBLICATION OF EDITORIAL OPINION WITH NATIONAL CIRCULATION IDA M, DARDEN, Editor Editoria l Offices Flatiron Building Fort Worth, Texas Phone FA-2089 Price $5.00 Per Year (Everypaidsubscriber isentitledfoone fr .. subscriptiontobesentto enyperson of his choosing.)

THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: The powers not delegated to the United Statu by the Constitution, nor prohibited bv itto theStatesarereserved to the Statu rupedively, or to the people, Back to the Pulpit With Political Preachers In furtherance of the theo1ogical policy of defending subversives from exposure by investigating Committees of Congress, the Very Reverend Fran­cis B. Sayres, dean of the Washing­ton Cathedral and the Very Reverend James A, Pike, dean of St. J ohn the Divine in New York, exchanged pul­pits recently. In blistering attacks on Senator Joseph R. McCarthy for exposing Communists in high positions, these political pulpiteers whose time and efiorts are devoted to practically every contemporary subject except religion, discarded all semblance of ministerial dignity and descended to the level o! gutter snipes prosecuting a back-street gang brawl. By implication, they defended Com­munists, saboteurs, homosexuals and other subversives routed out of the government, the army, defense plants and other critical positions by the timely action ol the McCarthy Com-mittce of the Senate. For good measure one o! them even denounced the church to w}lich Senator McCarthy belongs which, to our mind, is a disgrace to the cloth since no person who holds another man's religion up to scorn has any vestige of Christianity in his own heart. Such infamous clerical behavior would seem to indicate that there is a crying need for a housecleaning in some ot the churches and that it is high time political preachers were driven back to the pulpit. Whenever announcement is made of the holding o! a "seminar or "workshop," such project will bear close watching. Formerly these two words had a perfectly respectable meaning but in recent years, the terms have been so frequently em­ployed as a disguise for Communist activity as to make them suspect. THE SOUTHERN CONSER VAT IVE April, 1954 Investigators Ignore Our Suggestion That Mothers Are Given War Casualty Statistics Alger Hiss Be Made Committee Counsel Because he was reported to have once expressed opposition to Commu­nists taking over the American gov­ernment and to have, in the process, uttered appreciation of Senator Mc­Carthy's efforts to prevent it, At­torney Sears of Boston was found objectionable to members of Ameri­cans for Democratic Action and ac­cordingly forced to resign as Counsel for the Senate Committee investiga­ting the Cohn-Adams feud. After combing the nation's attor­neys to find one suitable to ADA, the committee finally decided on Mr. Ray H. Jenkins, reputed to be an impec~ cable member of the legal fraternity, " without bias or prejudice" concern­ing the Wisconsin senator although it is difficult to believe that any good American does not have definite con­victions in the matter. We tried to help the committee out when it seemed that they were hope­lessly deadlocked after Mr. Sears be~ came disgusted and resigned, but they didn 't pay any attention to us and went right ahead and ignored our well-intentioned suggestions.

Red Teachers Try to NO DISRESPECT TO OUR DIPLOMATS Pin Rose on Hutchins BUT WE'VE SEEN BETTER MEN HUNG The Communist-clogged New York Teachers Union whose ch ar~ ter was revoked by the American •Federation of Labor on the ground that it was Communist-dominated and which was repudiated by the New York City Board of Educa­tion for the same reason, held its annual meeting r~cently. A feature of its program was the presentation of its annual award for "unswerving defense of intellectual freedom" which is its way of showing appreciation of the most outstanding defender of the rights of educators to teach Communism in the schools of this country. Appropriately en o u g h, this award was voted to Rober t M. Hutchins, former president of the University of Chicago and now head of the $500,000 ,000 Ford Foundation which uses its funds not to expose Communists in gov­ernment but to expose_ those who expose Communists. However, this public recogni~ tion by the notorious and discre d it~ ed New York Teachers Union of the service rendered their cause by Hutchins was too much even for the Ford Foundation manage­ment whose directors instructed Hutchins to refuse the award. This he did but it must have practically broken his heart to be forced to turn down an award which he had earned and merited. Hutchins is the gent who once Here's another fast one put by the American people with little or nothing said about it in the press. France, England and the United States have entered into an "agree~ ment" to revive trade with Russia, It develops that we, along with France and England, are to sell "consumer" goods to the Soviets being careful not to include any­thing that could be used in a war against us, as if any idiot didn't know that anything furnished to those barbarians will be used in bolstering their economy for the war for which they are always p r e~ paring. As explained by Harold Stassen, perhaps the weakest sister in a whole galaxy of weaklings, the move is designed to prevent war by giving the Russians "a taste of the good things of life", including butter which is so costly that Americans can't afford it but which-the government proposes to se~~iu!~a a~~ c~~~ giving them a "taste of the good things of life" too, but we are afraid we would first season it with a little arsenic.

We Are Traveling Fast In the Wrong Direction From the Summer White House on the Augusta golf course, lhe P resident recently issued an official ultimatum pledging that American troops will remain in Europe indefinitely. The President, in taking this au­thority, is secure in the knowledge that the American Constitution is largely inoperative in official govern­ment circles and that we no longer have a Supreme Court which will en­force its provisions except when it suits its ends to do so. Otherwise, it would not be possible for the President, in peace time, to issue orders from a clubhouse com­mitting our armed forces to the de­fense of foreign nations except as a result of an o!!icial Declaration of War by the Congress of the United States. Secretary of State Dulles had earlier practically declared war in Indochina and then Vice President Nixon got into the act and indicated that the job of defending that country would fall to the United States. We believe that a re-appraisal of our foreign policy by Congress cannot be avoided and the authority for plunging this country into armed con­flict definitely settled unless we are ready to concede officially that the Constitution is invalid and that just anybody can declare war when they feel like it Or when they run 0ut of something else to do. The fai lure of the Bricker amendment to pass the Senate is hailed as a victory for the admin­istration. It is also recognized as a definite loss to the securitv of the Republic. Apra, 1954 TH E S O UTHERN C ON S ER VA TI VE Page 5 We Forecast United States' Interference in Indo-China And Communist China's Admission to the United Nations We have not the slightest desire to emulate columnists who make pre­dictions of things to come but we do want to forecast two events w_h ich. we believe inevitable. PACK OF SOVIET DEFENDERS READY TO AID OPPENHEIMER First, we think this country will be dragged into the Indonesian war with­in the next few months, and that American boys will be sacrificed there as in the Korean farce. It requires no great acumen or fore­sight to arrive at this conclusion as Secretary of State Dulles practically declared war in his recent public statement on the situation there. His words were vague, involved and am­biguous but there was no mistaking his warning that we are being herded into the French-Chinese brawl. Also, in December, one hundred American pl anes were shipped from J apan to Manila where the American insigne was removed and that of France substituted. The planes were then sh ipped to Indo-China. Also many members of the Air Force are receiving sealed orders to report to the South Pacific and since we are not at war, that can mean only that we are soon going to get into one. Second, we predict that the Chinese Communists will be seated in the United Nations within a year and that this will be taken care of at the Geneva Conference, although the world may not be advised of it. We have always mainta ined, how· ever, that it is not important whether or not the Chinese Communists are alloWed in the United Nations. What is important is that the United States get out of the United Nations before it is too late. The Chinese Communists would be right at home in the United Nations a nd rightfully belong there among their own kind while the United States is an alien entity in the group. The United Nations is the medium through which the world conspiracy against this country is to be realized and, aside !rom a few small a1_1d un­~ mportant nations,, we have no allies m that group. Parents Are Urged to Check on College Reading Material This Is the Story Parents who are concerned in the Of Kitty Jones social and economic philosophy being taught their ~ons and daughters at Mrs. Theodore A.

We believe they will find, as we did, that while very few publications who champion Americanism are to be found in these periodical rooms, there are three which are a lmost invariably to be had. These three are the Nation, the New Republic and the New York Times. Of the two former publications, the Nation and the New Republic, the California Un- American Activities Committee said in its fifth report in 1949, on page 621: ''The Nation and the New Republic have long records as liberal publica­tions. They cannot be described as Communist, but they are so infiltrated with the Communist Party policy that they serve the interests of the Com­munists and confuse liberals on many issues, much more than do some of the Communist publications." The New York Times while not mentioned by investigating commit. tees belongs, as all informed persons know, in the same classification as the Nation and the New Republic, in its ideological and ed itorial policy. No copies of the Da ily Worker will probably be fou nd in these periodical rooms but it would be better perhaps for the students if they were. That publication is widely known as the official organ of the Americ;m Communist Party and as such can do little damage. It is the so-called Hliberal'' publi­cations which advocate the same poli­cies as the DaiJy Worker but who operate under a cloak of respectability which constitute the menace to vul­nerable adolescent minds. years, had what would have been regarded once as a unique and out. rageous experience, but which is ac­cepted procedure now in view of the church's changed attitude toward Communism. Mrs. Jones became alarmed at sub­versive teaching in the Tenafly High School and at the amazing number of books and publications by Commu­nists and Fellow Travelers in the school's library. Like any good American, she pro­ceeded to try to do something · about it by calling public attention to the effort of Communists to undermine children's faith in the institutions of this country and in religion and point­ed to the literature in the school readw ing room as evidence. As a result, she was asked to resign as a teachet' in the Sunday School of The Church of the Atonement of Tena­fly of which the rector is the Rev­John Rosebaugh. Shocked and grieved by this forced disassocia tion w ith the Sunday School class she had taught !or years, Kitty J ones, accompanied by a group of substantial citizens of the community called on the Rt. Rev. Benjamin Wash­burn, Episcopal bishop of the Newark Diocese in an effort to secure re­instatement to her post as teacher in the Sunday School. Dewey's Legislature Enacts Bill Favoring Fifth Amendment Communists She presented the bishop with evi­dence of Communist penetration of the school and furnished him with copies of many of the books found in its library and called h is attention to chapters condemning religion and the American Free Enterprise system and asked him to arrange a hearing be­fore her vestry. Bishop Washburn cold ly inlormed his visitors that th is was none of his concern and referred her back to her own minister who had fired her from the Sunday School class. The bishop further stated that it was not his in. tention to discuss Communism and referred the group to a recent speech of Rt. Rev. Henry Knox Sherril1, president of the Episcopal National Church Council, in which he ex­pressed fear, not ol Communism, but of "creeping Fascism." A piece of legislation has been passed by the New York assembly which will bear watching because t here is danger of it spreading to other states, like the smallpox. The bill was an administration measure and is called a "code of fair procedure", that would "pro­t~ ct witnesses in state investiga­t~ ons and still preserve the state's nght to rout out subversion". It is a type of legislation which only a Pi nk like Dewey could spon­sor and only a legislature of the same hue would consider passing. I~s basic obj ective is to protect Ftfth Amendment Communists and as New York is f ull and running over with such characters, it is understandable how it found its way to the statute books of that state. This appeasing attitude toward Communists is, somehow, conta· It is claimed that the Central I ntelligence Agency of which brother Allen Dulles is head, has from eight thousand to thirty thousand employes, although the actual number is a deep, dark secret. It is also said to occupy thirty buildings in Washington and to cost the American tax­payers $500,000,000 per year to maintain. Since we have never heard of this agency exposing a Communist in government or do­ing anything else for that matter, we wonder what is done with all t his money. gious and there is grave danger of the contagion spreading to other heads of state and especially in heavily congested parts of the country w~ere anti-American sen· timent is running wild. The Methodists are going to have to look to their laurels. The Episco­palians seem to be running them a close second in the cover-up of sub­versives in the schools and churches. Thoughtful Americans are be­coming more and more aware of the fact that wars don't happen any more but are carefully plan­ned. Unfortunately those who negotiate these wars can't be put in the front lines and shot but remain well inside safety zones so they will live to plan other wars. The Oppenheimer case is unfold­ing the information that Commu· nists and Communist sympathizers were thickly clustered around the atomic energy projects from the beginning of the experiments and probably explains Russia's ability to keep abreast of the United States in development of atomic weapons. It turns out that Oppenheimer's background and his association with Communists has been known to authorities since 1949 but the matter was handled in the usual manner where such cases were in· volved. The information was kept secret and he was allowed to con· tinue his work in atomic labora­tories. It probably would have never been disclosed if authorities had not had Senator McCarthy breath­ing down their necks. Now all the pack of liberal scien­tists, fifth-Amendment Americans, and the usual contingent of Soviet defenders are rallying to Oppen­heimer's defense without knowing, or caring, whether he's guilty or not. U.N. Experts Plan to Tear Up The Calendar and Start Over The United Nations set up for " combating aggression , preventing wars and insuring peace'' is about to engage in a new project through Hs Economic and Social Council and any normal, sane and well-balanced per­son could make a thousand guesses without hitting on the right answer as to what it is. Having run out o! things to reform, they are now about to embark on a program of Calendar Reform. Under a plan which India has subw milled, the Gre,::orian Ca lendar which has been in use since the 16th Cen­tury would be abandoned and a new World Calendar adopted in its p lace which would contain only four months of 91 days each, in place of the twelve4 month calendar. The experts found , after launching this plan, that there would be one day left over so they decided ttiey would make this a World Holiday. And any one whose impulse is to engage in side-splitting laughter at the idea had just as well hold their fire. The United Nations bunch is just nutty enough to try it. If they are successful, there are a lot of things that are taken care o! on a monthly basis which will have to be revised to conform to a four times per annum schedule, but no doubt the experts can figure that out, too. Young boys who have not yet lived are forced into battle with enemies of whom they have never heard and compelled to sacrifice their lives in a "cause" which they do not understand. It's a great life for every one except those who do the fighting and dying. Page 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE April, 1954 Dr. Matthews Revises Estimate on Number The Truth About Who Long Over-Due Probe Of Communist Preachers in United States Had MacArthur Fired Is Now Under Way Ill-Founded Report Sends Americans Into Spasms of Fear A statement in the United Nations Bulletin of March first caused wide· spread alarm and consternation among responsible Americans who read it or had it called to their attention. This article was to the effect that the Genocide Pact had been signed by the United States and left the im­pression among many that this hein­ous plot had been ratified by Execu­tive agreeme:1t. TJ.e fact that hundreds of secret agreements are in effect which com­mit the United States to government by treaty instead of by the Constitu­tion, lent credence to the report. However, we are informed in a personal letter from a member of the United States Senate that this report is untrue, and that the conclusions drawn from the United Nations Bul­letin are misleading H is true that the Genocide Conven­tion was signed in 1949 either by the President or the Secretary of State who, at that time were Harry Truman and Dean Acheson, respectively. But their signature to it was only the lirst step and this Genocide thing docs not become elfcctive until ratified by the United States Senate which, God willing. will never happen. This Pact is in a pigeon hole in the files o( the Senate Foreign Relations Committee where it has reposed for morr than four YNlrs. An:v ~ttempt by the SrnatC' to 1·alify it would bring forlh a storm of protest from good Amrricans which would make the Bi­kini explosion seem like the pop of a !irecr.-.ckCJ". The history of this dangerous pro­posal known as the Genocide Con­vention and about whose potentiali­ties and implications few Americans are aware, is one of deceit, confusion and misrepresentation brought about by orricials in government who know that it will never be ratified but who fear to inform its sponsors to this c!fcd. 1t is a terrorist plot by international minority groups who seek to put a noose not only around the necks of A me deans but of free peoples all over th<' world, and in the event o( its ratification and the acceptance by the United Nations of propo!'ed amend­ments would do just that On April 6, 1953 John Foster Dulles as Secretary of State representing the PrC'sidcnt told the Foreign Relations Committee of the Senate that the administration would not pre-ss ror ratification of this Genocide Pact "at this time."

Early in 1954, when the Bricker amendment was before the Senate, President Eis<'nhower sent Dulles to th<' Senate to ask for defeat of the Bricker Am€'ndment and at the same time to again r<'·assure that body that theo administration would not ask for ratification of either the Genocide Sometime ago, Dr. J. B. Matthews while serving as counsel to a Senate Committee investigating Communist activities, startled the American peo­ple with the announcement that there were seven thousand Protestant min­isters serving the Communist cause in this country. Since that time, Dr. Matthews has been doing further research in the matter, checking his figures and re­vising his estimates and he now an­nounces that he was mistaken in his assertion that there were seven thou­sand subversive preachers occupying American pulpits He says the figure should have been 8,079. Communist conspirators have es­tablished a strong beachhead in the American church pulpit, Dr. Matthews told a California audience recently and added that "at least 12,000 Ameri­can clergymen became susceptible to fraudulent Communist appeals, such as the petition to save the Communist spies, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. Communist infiltration in the There was a lot of hogwash about a committee in Washington which was going to find out and make public the truth about who had Mac­Arthur fired, but of course it pooped up and fizzled out. So here are the facts as we have been able to piece thern together from the record and lrom natural deduc­' tion dictated by common sense: At the Lontlon meeting of the Unit­ed Nations Preparatory Commission in London following the setting up of the international conspiracy against the United States at San Francisco in 1945, the Russians put their cards on the table and flat told the delegates present that unless a Communist were given the post of Minister of War, Communications and Information of the United Nations, they would with­draw from the world organization. It goes without saying that the American delegates knuckled under and agreed to this arrangement whereby a Communist is always to ~~~;~~\n~ t~~op~~!!1d~ire~~~~~te u~: hold the chief military position in the American people, Dr. Matthews point- - United Nations.

The passage of the Bricker amend4 ment would afford protection in such situations and would obviate the ne­cessity for the American people to be forever on guard against plots such as this to destroy the precious free­doms bequ<'athed them by the founders of this Republic. Information of the United Nations who ordered Truman to fire him. To conclude otherwise, is to admit to a degree of stupidity of which even the Russians think us incapable. The Army ordered A~nie Lee Moss, a Negro woman employed in the Signal Corps, to return to duty after she was suspended following her appearance before the McCar­thy Committee. Reliable witnesses swore under oath that the woman had been a Communist but the Army took the position that she should be allowed to continue working while the investigation was completed. Looks like we always give suspected subversives the benefit of the doubt and if the security of .j.he country is involved, that's just too bad. A committee of Congress, under the chairmanship of Congressman Carroll Reece of Tennessee is con­ducting one of the most important investigations ever undertaken by memqers of that body. They are going into the subject of large Foundations set up as tax­exempt organizations for chari­table and philanthropic purposes supposedly, but whose money is known to be spent in subversive causes. The Committee would get much valuable information from the files of the old McCarren Commit­tee which conducted the investiga­tion into the Institute of Pacific Relations which was largely in­strumental in the sell-out of China to the Communists. The present owners of the Ford, Rockefeller, Carne.gie and other large fortunes, who never had any­thing whatever to do with amass­ing these fortunes, seem to have been converted to World Socialism and worse during the New Deal and Fair Deal administrations, and, as a result, have financed many queer operations. They should be made to stop giving grants to subversives and stick to the objectives they enu­merated when they secured tax­exemption privileges. or the priv­ileges should be taken away from them. So far as we know, they have never financed any activity in be­half of Americanism and it is well known that in order to get their support, any individual or move­ment must lean heavily to the left, ~t it mildly_.----- Tax Reduction Should Come Before Buildirrg Programs The bill before the Texas Senate appropriating $3,500,000 for new buildings at Southern Methodist Uni­versity at Dallas was passed by a vote of 25 to 1. Senator Jimmy Phillips, with whose views we do not often agree, took a very sound position in oppos­ing the appropriation. He contend­ed that anticipated surplus funds in the Slate treasury should be used in bringing about tax reduction in­stead of being devoted to building programs. That is a good sound argument re­gardless of who advances it and one with which hard·pressed taxpayers will agree. At least, they should have tacked on an amendment to the bill before tossing over $3,500,000, providing that no school could receive state money which is clogged with Pinks and which permits the teaching of. Socialism by its instructors. The sum of $3,500,000 is big money in anybody's language and very lit­tle, it any, of this sum was contribu­ted by those who so casually voted on giving it away. l-a, 'l;"r [e- Ct, Je.

Roosevelt was determined to in­volve this cou ntry in Socialist Eng­land's war with Nazi Germany but the people here wez:e unalterably opposed to interfence in the affairs of foreign countries. So he had to do some finagling and do it quick. He managed to in­furiate the Japs and incite them to action against us and since they were an Axis power, the assault against our troops had the desired effect and World War II was on. To do t he job up brown; he ordered the P acific fleet scattered throug)10ut the South Pacific into Pearl Harbor where they were lin­ed up like sitting ducks. The Japs attacked on schedule and in the process four thousand, Moscow Chalks Up Another Victory Southern Baptists have heretofore been singularly free from Communist influence and have shied away from national church organizations who follow the Party Line in social and racial matters. However the ir resistance is weak­ening in places and the mongreliza­t ion policy initiated in Moscow is gaining a foothold in heretofore im· pregnable circles. The Florida Baptist Women's Mis­sionary Union announced from Day­tona Beach recently that the 1954 meeting of its Young Men's Con­ference will be interraciai. Going into nauseating and re­pulsive detail, Armand Ball of Jacksonville, secretary of the Boys' Division of W. M. U. explained that black and white delegates will "eat, sleep, work and play" together at the meeting which will run two days. This all f igures and is right in line with the interracial plan originated in Moscow in October of 1928 when the Comintern mapped plans for bringing about these conditions in the South as the first step in the mongrelization of the white race in the United States. The next step will be to bring white and colored girls together in close contact. After that, it will be white girls and Negro boys brought into intimate association to finally complete the overall program of racial degeneracy. We hope that this practice is checked before it spreads and that the ranks of Southern Baptists will suffer no further infiltration by subversive propaganda. The president appointed one of the White House ushers government sec­retary of the Virgin Islands, the No. 2 administrative post there. Since that island's population is practically all colored a Negro is usually ap· five hundred seventy five Amer­icans were killed or wounded and eight American battleships, eighty Navy planes and ninety seven Army planes were destroyed or badly damaged. No advance information was furnished to American Army and Navy officers in Honolulu although Washington had this information well in advance of the attack. In the "investigation" which fol­lowed the reputations of two in­nocent men were smeared and Roosevelt emerged unscathed. All this is disclosed by Rear Admiral Robert A. Theobold of the United States Navy, retired, who was present in Honolulu at the time and who has spent the inter­vening dozen years in research and study of the records and who has incorporated the documented evi­dence in a book just released titled "The Final Secret of Pearl Har­bor". Horrified Americans who read it will either gasp, weep or swear according to their personal react­ion. William Z. Foster Enjoys. Immunity In 1948 when the Communists in New York were indicted and charged with conspiring to violate the Smith Act, William Z. Foster, former head of the Communist Party, was among the number. When the other eleven Com­munists were brought to t r ial F oster was not among them, h is physician having testified that he was p hysically unable to appear. As late as last May, the gov­ernment again moved for the trial of Foster but the Court made a ruling that Foster was still phys­ically unfit to stand trial. In the meantime, Foster visited the West Coast and with Harry Bridges helped to organize Com­munist Unions in that area. Also he was active in trying to prevent the execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg as spies against this country. Although he was too ill to be brought to trial for treason, he was able to prosecute his treason­able activities from coast to coast. There's no.thing like having a drag in high places. "At the risk of being labeled a rabble rouser, or a demagogue. or a reactionary or what-have-you, I am going to say that our constitu­tional processes are under real and immediate danger of being destroyed-not by some predatory enemy from without or by foreign agents from within; but rather, at the hands of the highest Court in the land, whose sworn duty is to guard zealously those processes" Congressman John Bell Williams of Mississippi. pointed in such positions. However, the press dispatch announcing this ap~ pointment, following the modern cus­tom o:f refusing to call a Negro a Negro, does not state if the new ap­pointee is red, white, black or yellow. We do not undertake to give book reviews. In the first place, we don't have the space. In the second place, we do not feel we are a qualified book re­viewer and in the third place we have always regarded book reviewing as a silly procedure. No one could read a book for ex­ample and give an interpretation of it that would influence our opinion of it in the least. We could only eval­uate it after we had read it ourself and we accord this right ot individual opinion to all others. That is the reason why we are'\ln­able to discuss the merits of all the wonderful books that come to us through publishers who graciously send us review copies. There are two books which have come to our attention in recent months, however, which we highly recommend as informative reading for Americans who are hard put to keep up with the fast curves and crooked deals constantly put over by enemies of the American Republic. One is The Turning of the Tides by Paul W. Shafer, member of Congress from Michigan, with John Howland Snow of New York, economist, world­traveler and all·around informed American as co·author. This book is a documented narra­tive of the slow, steady and irisidious infiltration of American schools, col­leges and universities by Communist doctrines and an eye-opener to those who are constantly baHled by the flood of young subversives who emerge from our educational institu­t ions each year. The other is Operation Nightmare by Pat Barham, Paci!ic Coast news­paper woman and war correspondent, with Frank Cunningham of Santa Monica, California, with a long string of degrees to his credit, writer of syndicated articles, author of prize­winning books and one of the best card-carrying Americans in the United States as co-author. While The Turning of the Tides a~ he;es to a discussion of Communist infiltration of schools with such fidel­ity that it would be invaluable as a text-book in educational institutions, Operation Nightmare covers many subjects, all interesting. Perhaps it could be best described as discussing principally what goes on behind the scenes during modern wars and po­lice actions, with enlightening contri­butions to the sell·out of the Orient bY: the American State Department and the effective spread of syphillis among American combat troops through the Army's racial "integra­tion" program. The fact that the two co-authors, John Howland Snow and Frank Cun­ningham are our personal friends added to our appreciation of the books of course but our thorough enjoyment of them was not influenced by this consideration. Federal Government Took Away Rights of States i!nd ow the United Nations Is Taking Away Rights of Government How the rights o£ the American people are subtly taken away from them without their knowledge is hinted at in an amazing report called "Review of the United Nations Char­ter" put out by a sub-committee of the Untted States Senate Foregn Re~ lations Committee. In this report known as Senate Document 87, the views of John Foster Dulles are given on pages 288-289 concerning the "Domestic Jurisdiction Clause" of the United Nations Charter. Now the Domestic Jurisdiction Clause of the U. N. Charter defies ex­planation unless one has a thousand pages and several months time to elab­orate on it. Briefly it takes in every­thing in the way of "social and eco­nomic" problems including the right of the World Government to supervise every individual's activities with the possible exception of brushing his teeth. This report quotes Dulles a$_ feeling that this Domestic Jurisdictional Clause ''engendered special problems" in his country and suggested that we probably would not let the World Court, for instance, "determine the limitations of domestic justice" and that we probably "would not accept the compulsory jurisdiction clause." While he "stressed the virtue of the principle" he expressed doubt that the United Nations would be allowed to "intervene in the domestic life of the member states." At the same time, he gave subtle encouragement to One World­er~ by reminding them that when the Federal Government jn the United States was first set up, it had prac­tically no power while today "the Federal Government of the United States exercises an authority un­dreamed of when the Constitution was formed." Now if we can understand an im. plication that is not spelled out in so many words, Mr. Dulles was saying to the One Worlders, in effect: "The Federal government of the United States gradually usurped the rights of the States and while the people squawked at first, they were ~ . gradually whipped down. If the World Government handles the mat-ter the right way, the rights of the Federal Government of the United States can be taken over the same way." Anybody else is welcome to their own interpretation of the matter but that's ours. It is too bad that Richard Nixon is being rapidly whipped into line because he was a good American to start with and was not only aware of the CommUnist menace but helped to do something about it in the case of Alger Hiss. In a recent Detroit speech, however, he took an oblique slap at Senator McCarthy when he referred to the administration's effort to protect America from those who would destroy freedom "without endan­gering freedom in the process". • Adlai Stevenson, or any other ADA'er or even a Fifth Amend­ment Communist could not have said it any better.

Parent· Teacher Group Gets Some Sound Advice Mrs. Robert E. Meany of Chicago, retiring head of the regional Parent­Teacher association in the Chicago area, offered some good ad vice to the · .,.. women of t hat group as she reli n­q uished her office. She told them to quit wasting their t ime on subjects of international and human relations and warned them that they were weakening the in­f luence of parents and teachers by such tactics. "Our first job is with our children and the schools and not debating for­eign affairs'' Mrs. Meany said and added that the "human relations" subject always turns into a race rela­tions d iscussion. The lady is exactly right. All mat­ters relating to "human rights" "civil rights" 1'tolerance" and the rest of the propaganda subjects are all part of ari international plot, hatched in Moscow, for mongrelization of the white race of the United States. The National Parent·Teacher or­ganization was one of the first to fall for this propaganda and has done ir­reparable harm to the best interests or all races in this country by its con· tinual agitation for mixing and min­gling of whites and blacks. When Truman took over in 1945 on Roosevelt's death, he continued the policy of slavish "friendship" for Russia, which was, as always since the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, plotting the eventual conquest of the world. Truman began to see the light in 1947, regarding international Communism. But he could not or would not believe that the Reds who had penetrated the U. S. Government were plotting its violent over­throw. Perhaps the climax of the action which produced McCarthyism was Truman's crack that the Agler Hiss case was a HRed herring," fol­lowed a while later by the conviction of Hiss. Or perhaps it was Tru­man 's firing of Gen. Douglas MacArthur for wanting to win the Korean War. · Anyway, the bulk of the American people have been aware for several years now that the Red criminal conspiracy in the United States is real, that it means business, and that the business it means is the en­slavement of this country to Moscow and the murder of millions of Americans. Senator McCarthy is what you might call the living, breathing fighting expression of that American awareness of the nature of the Communist enemy. If he fights dirty now and then, it is because we are all up against the dirtiest foe imaginable. And if his words and acts sometimes shock the feelings of refined people, that is because you can't fight a king cobra with a perfume atomizer. The fierceness and toughness of McCarthy are the direct reaction to the softness and blindness of Roosevelt and Truman toward the Com­munist enemy. If those Presidents had had more sense, McCarthy would not have been necessary. For McCarthyism, then credit or blame-as you choose-the New and Fair Dealers who are now screaming the loudest about McCarthy­ism. They are its legitimate parents, and they look more than foolish when they try to disown their offspring. April, 1954 It Sounded All Right but It Didn't Mean Anything In a left-handed slap at the McCar­thy Committee lor its excellent work in exposing Communists in govern­ment, in the Army and in other stra­tegic positions ol trust, Attorney Gen­eral Herbert Brownell said in a teJe .. vision address: ''The FBI, the Department of Justice and the courts are your agents in dealing with this Com­munist conspiracy. All are vigilant in th eir readiness to meet any move or emergency which the Commu­nist Party in America might pre­cipitate." This all sounds very well except that it doesn' t mean anything. Eve ry body knows how vigilant the FBI is and how vigilant it has always been in flushing out Communists. But they also know how !utile this has been when the Department of Justice has refused to prosecute and the White House has suppressed the evi­dence which the FBI dug up. They have not forgotten that the FBI warned time and again aboul Alger Hiss and Harry Dexter White being enemy agents and the only re­sult was for these two traitors to be promoted to higher and more re~pon­sible positions. Also they have not forgotten that it was a Federal Court which threw out part of an indictment against Owen Lattimore when a Committee ot the Senate proved him guilty or per­jury in his answers to that group. The point Brownell was apparently trying to makC' is that investigating committees of Congress are not neces­sary in combatting the Communist conspiracy, but we don't believe the American peoplp will buy his idea. A good way for the admin ist ration to prove it is sincere in wanting to oust Commun ists from their entrench­ed positions is to quit playing petty politics and line up solidly behind the jnvcstigating committees of the Senate who are getting the job done while others in the administration merely blow off steam. From a subscriber in Savannah, Georgia: I do not think you need to '·eat crow'' concerning your origina l views on women voters. While there is a fine minority ol patriotic women such as those you name, the majority seem to be on the "liberal" s ide. I have never seen where the League of Women Voters have been on any­t hing but the anti·American side. The same goes for the American Associa­tion o! University Women. All or the women librarians Jn the country seem to be "liberal" and the Federation o! Womens Clubs vote lor internation­al anti·American rot. H the women whose sons are caught like African slaves and sent to fight useless and non-sensical wars under a foreign flag, would rise up in a body, thero might be some hope." Ray Carroll, Billings . Montana news commentator, has his own p ledge which all Americans wor­thy of the name would do well to make their own: "I pledge my al­legiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Re­public for which it stands; one na­tion indivisible with liberty and justice for all; and I do not now, nor will I ever. give allegiance to the Flag of the United Nations, nor to any other Flag which seeks to replace the Flag of the United States of America".
