Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 5 Fort Worth, Texas, January, 1954 No. I en Letter To Malenkov If We Annex Hawaii Maybe Hula Hula Dancers Will Be Elected To Congress Although members of Congress have sometimes taken collective action which inspired the strong suspicion that when God was dis­tributing brains. they ducked their heads, we cannot believe that the bill to make an Asiatic colony the forty-ninth State of the American Union, will be passed. This measure has already been adopted by the House but the Sen­ate is traditionally regarded as the safety brake to protect the Lower House from its own folly. In ract. it is conceded that the House ofien passes a bill which its members know to be unwise with the almost certain assu rance that the Senate will defeat it and take them off the hook. In the interest of all Americans, we sincerely hope that the Senate comes to the rescue in the matter of the Hawaiian Statehood bill and snows it under. How thinking persons could have ever evolved the plan for an­nexing an Oriental territory to the Continental United States in the first place. defies comprehen­sion The rumor persists that the plan was born when a committee of middle-aged Washington officials once made an inspection trip to Honolulu and that the promise of Statehood was exacted of them by members of a. group of Hula Hula dancers who were their gay companions on some enchanted evenings. Well. if this is true. perhaps it sounded like a good idea at the time. But we submit that the white sands on the beach at Waikiki, with a pale Hawaiian moon blend­ing it\ intoxicating rays with the soft a"a haunting strains of Aloha, Is hardly the proper setting for commitments on legislation vital­ly affecting the interests and se­curity of one hundred and sixty million citizens of this Republic. After all. the majority of Amer­icans have never been to Honolulu, have never witnessed. at first­hand. the contortions of an Island charmer in action. and can't be expected to understand. accept or approve the bizarre aftermath of a midsummer night's madness. Those members of the Senate who have never been exposed to the seductive lobbying tactics of dusky maidens clad only in gar­lands of orchids. white ginger leis and shimmering grass skirts, should consider the plain, unro­mantic and practical reasons why the annexation of Hawaii would constitute a national tragedy. The people of Hawaii, two thou­sand miles away from our main­land, have nothing in ccmmon with the principles of the Ameri­can Republic. Ethnically, cultural· ly and ideologically, their hearts belong to the Orient. Haven't we got enough persons here now whose conception of government and economics is based on the ideals of lands across the ocean from which they came? Harry Bridges. with his twenty thousand card-carrying Commu­nists. is the dominant figure in the Islands and if our Supreme Court is unable to rule him out of the United States, how can we expect to oust him from his Communist Paradise by annexing his domin­ion? Out of the total population in Hawaii of 450,000, only 68.600 are white, the balance being Chinese, Japanese and various other mix .. tures of Asiatic stock With all the tro\lble we are having now, with politicians fall­ing all over their own feet to favor. racial minority groups, for heaven's sake. it seems nothing less than suicidal to add almost a half million more non-whites to contribute to our national head­ache. If there just must be swapping of alien groups between Hawaii and the United States. why not send some of ours over there? In other words, why not rig up a substitute bill which would give New York and California to the Hawaiians and, thus, instead of taking over their undesirable aliens, we could unload some of ours on them. We concede the astounding success of the Kremlin in bending weak leaders of strong nations t<t its iron will and subverting them to its evil designs. We recognize the amazing progress you have made toward the ideo· logical subjugation of many countries, including our own. We acknowledge your proved power in the past to influence American legislation, to sway Supreme Court decisions and to dictate official action in the White House. But we warn you that there is a swelling tide of resentment on the part of plain Americans against Soviet dictation of the economic and social policies of the United States. Remembering as we do, that only thirty thousand organized Bolsheviks were able to physically overthrow the great Russian Empire and re· alizing that many times that number are presently operating here to effect the moral, spiritual and political conquest of this country, we would remind you that millions of patriotic Americans are now alerted to the danger and are resolved to exert every resource to save the Republic from this fate. TO GF:OR(:l MAU•:NKOV, Tin; KREMLIN, MOSCOW· As we step through the open door of 1954, we are moved to hail you-not for any humanitarian achievements you have accomplished, for there are none to your credit. We acclaim you for adhering. without deviation, to the one sure and certain policy which renders a nation strong and invulnerable and that is its determination to preserve, through hell and high water, its own form of government, without concession to foreign elements which seek to change or emasculate it. By every accepted standard of civilized humanity, yours is the vilest and most despotic system of government ever conceived by sinister and twisted minds for keeping the huJllan spirit in bondage. Your leaders are universally recognized as heartless assassins to whom the qualities of mercy, compassion and justice are unknown but, at least, you have kept your own particular type a[ government intact and have preserved your chosen way of life from violation by foreign forces. For this, and this alone, we salute you. Here in the United States, we have not been so fortunate. In contradistinction to you. Wf' have not only been unable to con­vert other countries ~o our good, sound Free Enterprise system of government, but we have allowed alien enemies to swarm in and practically destroy it. With a vicious governing system instituted by human fiends, you have managed to preserve it; with a perfect governing system devised by dedicated patriots. we are gradually managing to lose it. In your case, for instance, we have fawned, kowtowed and toadied in attempts to placate and appease you. We have humiliated ourselves and sacrificed our national pride .in futile efforts to convert you from the ways of barbarism to those of civilization but we have not made a dent in your armor. On the other hand, without ever leaving your impregnable Krcm .. lin fortress, you have been able-through your hundreds of thousands of emissaries here-to bring about the abandonment of our funda­mental American principles, the repudiation of our cherished tradi- (Continued on Page 6) ---- Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE January, 1954 Stealing From Government Agency Was As Easy As Taking Candy From A Baby Recently we have learned more of the nauseating details of the big counterfeiting plot of several years ago in which representatives of the American government were the participants and Russia the beneficiary. Russian agents in Washington government agencies were as thick as fleas on a sharecropper's coon dog and one of them in the Treas­ury Department stole plates out of the Bureau of Printing and En­graving and calmly turned them over to the Kremlin. The Russians printed tons of money from these plates, even though we had generously donated $11 ,000 ,000 to them as a gift. Being natural-born thieves and cut­throats, they preferred stealing the plates and counterfeiting the money to having it given them outright. The plates were taken during the time the Treasury was in charge of an outstanding dim4wit who would not have known what was going on even if the Russians had decided to remove his trousers along with the plates. Another stuffed-shirt Socialist followed this muddle-head in that office but if he discovered the theft of the plates, he kept still about it in order that the American people might not be informed of the man­ner in which the Russians exploit­ed us under Roosevelt and Tru­man. It was many years later that this information was flushed out and even yet all the facts in connec­tion with the infamous transaction are being dragged out piece-meal. As the over-all picture of trea­son develops, it staggers the imag­ination to contemplate the stupid­ity and ineptness of American offi­cials who were responsible for the security and protection of American interests and who bun­gled the job outrageously. Those same sinister forces who were working for our betrayal dur­ing the Roosevelt and Truman re­gime~ are no Jess active now and it is up to the American people to do sentinel duty against a repetition of the inglorious history of the past twenty years. Not only must Communist spies be removed from government agencies where, in the past, they have stolen us deaf, dumb and blind. but the citizenship must exercise extra precaution to in­sure that. in future, policies adopt­ed by our national leaders are not prepared and shipped here1 ready­made, from Moscow. Prime Minister D. F. Malan ol. South Africa in an address to their Nationalist Party recently said that 1'the United Nations is a failure-a cancer eating at the peace and tran­quility of the world." Then he added this timely warning: "Unless the Unit­ed Nations is radically reformed, it should disappear from the !ace of the earth." Another Methodist Bishop Who Runs True To Form Methodist Bishop William C. Martin, president of the National Council of Churches, addressed some sort of gathering in Wash­ington recently and deplored ·~un­warranted and irresponsible at­tacks upon the good name of men who have been assigned by their churches to places of leadership." Dr. Martin is wrong. No one has made any attack, unwarranted, irresponsible or otherwise, upon the type of minister he mentions. Attacks have very properly been. made on pink preachers who are playing the Communists' game and bringing discredit to the church and disgrace to themselves by peddling the Party Line from the pulpit. "If I were a Communist agent in this country with an unlimited expense account for the promotion of my nefarious work,'' continued the Bishop, "I would spend the major portion of my time and money in undermining the confi­dence of the Christian layman in his church and the leaders of his church." The answer to that is that the type of minister under attack is a Communist agent doing nefar­ious work and he has an unlimited expense account contributed by his congregation. He may not know he is a Communist agent, but the time has come to separate the sheep from the goats and those who defend Communists and op­pose American patriots seeking to expose Communist traitors, are a more effective agent for the Krem­lin than those sent out by Moscow. Confidence in the church and its leaders is being undermined all right but it is the Communist sympathizers in church leadership who are doing the job of u nder­mining. The survivor ol the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. From a woman subscriber in Sealtle: "I always get a kick out of the way you needle Washing­ton politicians but I don't under .. stand how you know so many an­gles since you are not in Washing­ton. Surely, you don't get your inspiration for your editorials from the newspapers. How on earth do you always know what politicians are doing?'' We don't, but neither do they. Americans Resent Official Vulgarity and Personal Bad Taste Displayed By Leaders In the 1920's, the United States was afflicted with an evil and malignant growth whlch sprang up in mushroom proportions and spread all over the country. It was called the Ku Klux Klan -an honorable name it had stolen from an earlier Southern group­and it was able to enlist hundreds of thousands of persons under its banner, principally from among the clergy and Protestant church members in all states of the Union. It was a despicable, politically inspired movement whose objec­tive was to humiliate, browbeat and intimidate minority groups be· cause of their race or religion, and to control elections and elect and keep in office its own m.embers, to the exclusion of all others. For years it thrived and pros­pered, fed by bigotry, prejudice and intolerance, but even at the peak of its evil ach ievements, no high public official representing the American people would have dared appear openly at one of its meetings. Even its own members did not attend without first hiding their faces behind bed sheets. If a pr esident of the United States and members of the Su­preme Court had been ph oto­graphed while attending a ban­quet of the Ku Klux Klan, accept­ing a medal from its Kleagle, pledging government support of Hs objectives and paying extrava­gant tribute to its Imperial Wiz­ard1 they not only would have been hounded out of office but probably would have been burned in effigy. By the same token, it is just as immoral. depraved and outrag­eous for high government officials to attend gatherings of groups which operate like the Ku Klux Klan in reverse, and whose ob­jectives are the same. If it was un-American for an or .. ganization composed of the rna- The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress ol the United States. From a retired army general in Atlanta, Georgia: "The opinion was expressed in some quarters that when Ike was elected, there would be no further need of the Southern Conservative, for he would clean house and solve, or begin the solution, of all our dif­ficulties. But Ike missed the boat completely and we are back where we were some twenty years ago. You must stay in the front line trenches, replenishing your am .. munition pile and commence f ir .. ing all over again. The enemy has not changed,•he is in the same po­sitions, but in many places-for the purpose of camouflage only­he has a new front line leader". jority to undertake to debase mi­nority groups, it Is equally un• American for an organization com­posed of minorities to seek to de-­base and humiliate a majority group of Americans. For high government officials to lend the influence and prestige of their office to un-American propa­ganda groups by attending their public gatherings, endorsing their aims and promising government support of their objectives, is a craven betrayal of the electorate which every decent and self-re• specting American resents to the very core of his being. And it matters not whether such propaganda groups are composed of a majority seeking to subjugate a minority or a minority attempt­ing to force their conception of human behavior on the majority. A president of the United States is the president of all the Amer­ican people and is traditiona11y credited with possession of the firmness, integ-rity and attributes of character which would preclude a display of partiality on his part toward any group of citizenship regardless of such group's influ­ence. voting power or control of newspapers or other publ icity and communication mediums. By the same token the members of the Supreme Court of United States are ch arged t?e sole responsibility of impar­tially interpreting the Constitution in the interest of all Americans and established American tradi· tion. For them to publicly appear as guests of any pressure group which is demanding special con­cessions in a court ruling, is the most blatant display of official vulgarity and personal bad taste the American people could pos• sibly be called on to witness. It is to be hoped that we will not often be subjected to similar de· grading spectacles. The survival ol the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress ol the United States. Maybe Point-4 Program Has Softened Him U~t On January 2nd, American news­papers carried a story from Morocco to the effect that the Sultan there had bashed out the brains of one ol. his harem attendants, after charging him with being the father of a child expected by one of his favorite harem beauties. These modern Sultans must be slipping and getting careless about details. All the Sultans we ever read a bout always took effective measures to insure the model behavior of all male employes. The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage ol the Bricker Amendment by the Congress ol the United States. January, 1954 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Pago ) American Citizens Must Exercise Their Sovereignty Or Risk Losing It Forever If the American people make no olhcr resolution for the New Year of 1954, they should resolve to become :familiar with the fundamentals of the American government and dedicate themselves to the task of helping to preserve it, or rather to reclaiming it. There are many pOpular miscon­ceptions to overcome and many fal­lacies to explode in conr:.ection with the average American's understand­ing or the functions and authority of our government in Washington. First, they should get it straight in their minds that elected public officials in the national government, from the president on down, are the servants and the people are the masters. Roosevelt operated on the theory­and got by with it-that it was the other way round and proceeded on the assumption that he was a super­dictator with supreme power and that not only the citizens, but members of Congress, were his puppets. This false conception of the presi­dency, and the general tendency o! regarding Washington politicians as little tin gods, still prevails among tnillions ot young people who were un.fol"tunate enough to grow up under the New Deal and Fair Deal and who have no understanding whatever of the proper relation between the citi­zen and governing officials of this Republic. In this country, it was planned by the founders that the will of the people should be supreme and that organized public opinion should be the guiding force for shaping official policies and framing legislation in the United States. It is also important for the citizen to realize that the Federal govern­ment does not have one penny of its own and that it possesses only such funds as it takes through taxation of the people of the various States. Therefore, there is no such thing as ''Federal Aid" and every foreign spending program which has been launched for the benefit of alien id­lers and the impoverishment of Am­erican taxpayers, i!!l un-Constitutional and would be so declared if we had a Supreme Court to properly interpret the organic law of the land. The Federal government was set up by the States and given limited powers as set forth in the Constitu­tion. AU power not delegated to the Federal government was, under the Tenth Amendment to the Bill of The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. Rights, reserved to the States. The States have failed miserably to exer­cise this power in recent years but they still possess it. Another fundamental fact which should be learned by those who do not know, and re-learned by those who have lorgotten, is that the State Legislatures are more powerful than Congress and, collectively, they could even abolish Congress if they so de­sired. This authority is given them under the second method provided for amending the Constitution. If thirty­two States memorialize Congress to submit an amendment back to the State Legislatures for ratification, Congress is compelled to comply, and when thirty-six states ·have ratified, such amendment is adopted. If members of the various State Legislatures had possessed the brains, understanding and initiative to pro­ceed under this authority twenty years ago, Roosevelt C'Ould ha"E> been stopped dead in h:s tracks when he embarked on his squandering spree and headed this country i'1to National Socialism. The Stflte legislaturf":-1 could have demanded the complete repeal of the iniquitious income tax amendment which would have cut his water off and saved this nation from the threat of national bankruptcy which hovers like a vulture on the horizon. Americans, as a whole, are the most highly educated people on earth but they know less about their own form ol government, its authority and its limitations, than a pig does about higher mathematics. So we hope that in this year ol 1954, the citizens will come to realize their power and responsibility as sovereigns and will exercise it. The president, your United States senator and your Congressman are your servants and it is your duty as their master to tell them just exactly how you want the job done. Stereotyped petitions are perhaps ol some effect but not nearly so much as personalized messages, such as a letter, a telegram or even a telephone call, conveying expressions and in­dividual convictions which come from the heart. This will make them sit up and take notice and watch their step. This power of the people, if not exercised, may eventually be lost and the sovereignty of the citizen abdi­cated through neglect and dis-use. The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. Who Cares What Happens to Either Politi«:al Party If The Republic Itself Is Destroyed? A Propaganda Organization Horns In On Charity Funds When Roosevelt committed the Federal government to the respon­sibility of supporting private citi­zens through relief, social security, unemployment compensation, old age pensioris and other foreign­inspired Socialistic legislation, it was assumed, naturally, that local charity burdens would be light­ened. However the funds donated to community chests have increased each year and during 1953, the total raised by these agencies was the highest in history. And as money for organized "charity" has increased. rackets attending it have multiplied. In some cities, for instance, where charity is dispensed through various organizations who receive their proportion of the funds re­sulting from the drives, the name of the Urban League appears as one eligible to receive such dona­tions. The Urban League is a national propaganda organization which, by no stretch of the imagination, can be classed as "charitable" un­less efforts to stir up racial strife throughout the country can be so desig-nated. Even Hoddin_g Carter. the Mis­sissippi 40Liberal" who usua1Jy goes along with Party Line propaganda on racial matters, stated in a re­cent magazine article with nation .. wide circulation: "Racial tension and hate organizations flourish in areas where the Urban League is popular.'' Much of the activity of this Urban League in recent years has been devoted toward the promo­tion of a movement to get Negroes into white neighborhoods-a field in which it has been successful in many cases. In Fort Worth. the Urban League is one of the groups re­ceiving funds donated for charity although few of the contributors who eive their money for the bene .. fit of the hungry and sick are aware of this. Lester Granger, a Negro cited for membership in two Communist fronts, is the executive head of the Urban League, with headquarters in New York and branches in various cities. Sometime ago, he addressed an audience in Fort Worth, following a bi-racial dinner, attended by the type of white persons usually found at such functions. When Granger left Fort Worth for California, he gave out an in­terview to a Negro Los Angeles newspaper in which he spoke con­temptuouoly of Fort Worth, al­though he boasted that "in that tight capital of hide-bound segre­gation" he was invited to a meal ' 1in one of the city's principal hotels which two years before would have shaken as if in an earthquake at the very suggestion A Washington newspaper man observes that word has been passed quietly among the Demo­crats that Governor Thomas E. Dewey has been a p p o i n t e d "hatchet man" by the Republicans to "bring about the destruction of the Democratic Party.'' Holy Smokes! Can any American really be so stuoid and uninformed as not to realize that the Democratic Party was destroyed lock. stock and bar .. rei by the combined efforts of Roosevelt anrl Truman? Any resemblan<'P between the great nartv o[ Jefferson, Jackson ~nd Madison. as set up by its founders, and !he current outfit manioulated and controlled bv po- 1itical mongrels and half-breeds, is strictly non-existent. Anv wav. it is not of the slight­est imnortance whether the so­called Democratic Partv is, or is not. destroved. nor, for that mat­ter. whcthPr the RPouhlican Partv survives. but it is of vital and deadlv imoorbnce to everv honor­able ~nd natriotic Ameri,.an, that the Republic be preserved. of a brown gentleman breaking bread within its doors." Granger suoke of a cclower mid­dle- class white neighborhood" in Forth Worth in which Negroes were infiltrating and insislPd that, in spite of bombings. they "intend to stick it out." Referri~g to the Fort Worth Police Department's efforts to keep down trouble in that nei<:hborhood he said that: "While 1he Police Department has assigned a detail to guard the home. it's the most lackadaisical guard within a thousand miles.'' In a frank reference to object­ives. Granger added: "If our Northern civil rig-hts laws are making the frontal attack on our enemy. these Southern battles are protecting our rear." He also told of a banquet given in his honor while he was in Fort Worth by one hundred and fifty members of the American Associ· ation of Social Workers but com­plained that although a press rep­resentative was sent to cover the affair, he had "seen no result of the coverage." What he didn't realize appar­ently was that there was probably no intention of giving the affair publicity and that it was the last thing those giving the dinner wanted. His interview appeared in the "California Eagle" on December lOth, 1953, published in Los An­geles, and if there was any ref­erence to "charitable" activities by his Fort Worth branch. or any other division of his League, we could not find it. We have been informed that there will be a revision of the list of groups receiving charity funds hereafter or else a definite de­crease in the contributions in fu· ture. The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States.

France Launches a Sort of Point-2 Deflation Program The French who are accused by their allies of negligence in connec­tion with international cooperation and of lagging behind in the matter ol security measures for European nations, have apparently been occu­pied with tar more world-shaking subjects. In an edict which has gone out from Paris fashion dictators, it is decreed that there will be a drastic reduction in the dimensions of the female bosom and smart women of 1954 are warned that they must con­form to the llat chests and boyish lines of the 1920's in order to measure up to modern beauty standards. The order is said to have caused a general collapse in certain circles where the build-up has been along other lines.

The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. Because Senator Joseph R. Mc­Carthy told the truth in his radio a n d television broadcast i n November, the "liberal" pack of hyenas set up a howl and started yak-yaking about "McCarthyism". Character istically refusing to play the demagogue and charge all the evils in government to one party, the Wisconsin statesman and patriot frankly told his mil­lions of listeners how the cow ate the corn. \~hile the Socialists who stole the Democratic Party twenty years ago were primarily respon­sible for practically turning the operation of the government over to Commuli.ists and Communist sympathizers. the Republicans must accept their share of the blame for leaving many of them there. All this Senator McCarthy pointed out and used the State Department as an infamous ex­ample of continued domination of subversives in policy-making. And every good American will agree with him and will pray for more, and not less. '1McCarthyism" in the management of the Federal government from here on out. From a prominent Chicago at­torney: urncidentally, I consider that the destruction of our form of government is now inevitable but I honestly admire the courage and patriotism of good people such as yourself in attempting to postpone the oncoming debacle". uThe \'ery essence of a free gov­ernment consists in considering of­fices as public trusts, bestowed for the good of the cotPntry, and not Ior the benefit of an individual or a party."-John C.

These Good Old Sisters Had Better Be Praying For Their Own Country We have been looking over a pamphlet issued by the Board of Missions of the Methodist Church and distributed by the United Church Women with headquarters at 156 Fifth Avenue, New York. We couldn't find anything in it about missions but this was prob­ably due to the fact that its space was all taken up with plugs for the United Nations. Although it is obvious that these good ladies do not have any more understanding about this world organization and its villainous ramifications than a chipmunk has about nuclear fission, this did not prevent them from recommending it without qualification.

We can just see certain gents in Moscow and in the capitals of other Iron Curtain countries jump­ing up and down with glee as they contemplate the spectacle of bour­geois boobs praying for the success of their conspiracy to control the world. Reluctant American Comes Back Home One of the Gl's from Texas who had expressed his determination to remain with the Communists and who had .re1used repatriation, has his mind and come home . stances it has given him front page in the news-papers and a attention which, no doubt, pleases him greatly. We can't see why he should not be marked off and forgotten. Love of country and patriotism for our insti­tutions is supposed to be instinctive in an American's heart and the !act that an American soldier could de­liberately desert and go over to the enemy shows that he is constructed of very inferior material. Naturally, the families of thf'se men arc delighted at their return but the country gains nothing. They proved traitors once and cart never be fulJy trusted again.

They leaned On Government Bridges and Coplon SolongThey(an'tStandAione Still Running Loose The success achieved by the Roose­velt and Truman administrations in Socializing the American farmer and bringing about a moral collapse of this segment of the citizenship, is in­dicated in a national poll of cotton and peanut growers to :find out whe­ther or not they favored government price control of their product. In separate polls, they agreed to limit plantings in return for contin­ued high support prices by the Fed­eral government. Twenty States voted 441,261 to 26,990 to accept Socialism as our na~ tiona] policy and continue supports on 19:S4 crops. Well, here we are entering another year and Harry Bridges is still ''un­deported'' and going strong. And as lor Judy Coplon. his female prototype, who became hump­shouldered from carrying secret pap­ers out of the Justice Department for delivery to Russian agents-she is still on the loose too. The Supreme Court seems to be good at lots of things, such as regu­lating social practices, for instance, but when it comes to handing down decisions which will stand up in the deportation of enC'my spif's-they are good bird watchers.

The only thing that has stood in the way of complete capitula­tion to the Soviets in recent years has been the unified action of Conservatives in both major par­ties. It must be embarrassing to the Kremlin to be thwarted by those members in both Houses of Con­gress who doggedly insist on de­feating legislation inimical to the interests of their own country. So the word has apparently gone out to Soviet agents in this country that the coalition in the American Congress must be ended. We still think that there are enough red-blooded Americans in the Congress to continue the co­alition but we admit that it is pos­sible, of course, that the wish is father to the thought. and we could be whistling in the dark. The ! urvival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. A Fort Worth minister who regards himself, and who is regarded by his congregation, as a strong opponent of Communism employed a rather peculiar and unconvincing method recently to emphasize his disapproval of this ideology. From the pulpit, he made a lashing attack on Senator Joseph R. Mc­Carthy and all the "little McCarthys" who are similarly seeking to oust Communists [rom government, from our schools, churches and all other institutions in this country where they have become entrenched. Unfortunately, we hnve reached a point in this count1·y where an Amer­ican must choose between American­ism as expressed by the investigating committees who are exposing sub­version, and Communism as typified by those whom the committees are exposing. Therefore, a denunciation of Sen­ator McCarthy, or any other chair­man of committees probing Commu­nist infiltration, is a defense of Com­munism and such denunciations are gleefully hailed by the Daily Worker and similar Communist mouthpieces as evidence of the success of their campaign to smear an outstanding, courngeous and unafraid American statesman An Indiana Woman Points the Way to Good American Citizenship When our faith in everything reach­es a low point, as it sometimes does, it is always revived by the actions of some outstanding American patriot. Such as those of Marguerite Dice of Indianapolis. Indiana, for instance. Aside from the fact that we have personal reasons to be grateful to her for encouragement and assistance, we respect and admire her for her unselfish and patriotic service to her country, above and beyond the line of duty. Every-Tuesday night, her beautiful Indiana home is thrown open for discussion by various groups on the issues and problems now facing the American people. Friends and neighbors are invited to come and participate in these heart­to- heart talks about the official con­duct of the men in Washington who have been trusted with the sacred re­sponsibility of representing the in­terests of the American people. If every good American would fol­low the precedent of Mar2uerite Dice and hold similar gatherings, the result is bound to have a wholesome effect on the national economy. Since the American home is under direct attack from the sinister forces who would destroy all this sacred in­stitution stands for, it could be put to no better use than to be thrown open for discussion of ways and means to preserve it. Why Wouldn't MoFale Of Fighting Forces Be Low? In an addresr to the National Se­curities Training Commission, the president expressed his deep con­cern over the low morale of the American armed .forces and well he might. It does not require the brain of a genius to figure out the cause for unrest, disgust and discontent among American troops. This has been building up since 1948 when Truman launched his "integration program", in response to demands of invisible rulers who call the shots. This program provided that white draftees would be thrown into the most intimate contact with Negroes and would be compelled to eat, sleep, work, play with, and take orders from them. We wonder what was expected of respectable, well-bred and carefully­reared young Americans as a result o! this unnatural and ghastly order which broke all precedents in Amer­ican history. What were they supposed to do? Jump up and down with joy? The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. allowed to go Scot :free. Now the same farce is about to be repeated as the United Nations seeks to place the blame for Police Action in Korea and the chances are the job will again be fumbled and that the real criminals will slip through the net. Regardless ol how the facts are jumbled, distorted or plain suppressed by the United Nations, the reasons for the Police Action in Korea are easy to figure out. Truman's Fair Deal was trembling on the brink, even as Roosevelt's empire was shaky until he latched on to World War II in order to save his skin. Early in 1950 the late Phillip Mur­ray, who was then president of the CIO and who bossed Truman as a section boss does a Mexican track­walker, called at the White House and reported that 4,000,000 American labor union members were out of wcrk and that jobs were getting harder to secure each day. The Missouri 'midget who operated under the Pendergast code of ethics, couldn't let the boys down. The fact that over a hundred thousand Amer­ican soldiers would be the victims was beside the point. Union labor's demand for full employment was more important. Now, the United Nations announces that data on Korean atrocities will be assembled as a means of smoking out and punishing those who are guilly. If they knew their heads from a hole in the ground, they would al­ready have the facts assembled to prove who is responsible and why, and also that the data on atrocities, tortures and brutalities was prepared by General Douglas MacArthur who collected this information more than two years ago and documented with testimony of eye witnesses and photo­graphs and sworn to by both Amer­ican soldiers and captured Commun­ist prisoners. They could have this information free, unless it was destroyed at the same time General MacArthur was fired because he was winning the war. Dulles Vouched For The Loyalty Of Hiss A Washington columnist has made public a letter which John Foster Dulles wrote to one of those who ad­vised him that Alger Hiss had been accused of subversive activities and was perhaps unfit to serve as presi­dent of the Carnegie Foundation, a position Hiss held at the time. This letter which the Secretary of State no doubt regrets having written said: "I have your letter oi December 23rd. Mr. Hiss was elected president of the Carnegie Endowment at a meeting of the trustees held earlier this month at the same time that I was elected Chairman of the Board.

Then compare this plan with that of the United Nations to divide the world into two great opposing hostile groups. Then draw your own con­clusions to which oifers the best hope of lasting peace to the world." ''The cuckoo is a European bird which never builds its own nest , but steals those built by other birds.

I have bE:E'n thrown in intimate contact with him at San Francisco, London, and Wash­ington, and I doubt that the people you refer to in Washington know him any better than I do or have sH n him actually at work in alien effort~.

Page 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE January, 1954 MALENKOV (Continued from Page 1) tions and the realignment of our national policies to conform to Soviet thinking. You have perfected the art of government-by-remote-control to a degree never before achieved in human history. From your far-away point of vantage, you have pulled the wires which have inspired our foreign and domestic policy, you have dictated judicial rulings, altered our immigration laws, influenced Congressional action, authored executive pronouncements, smeared our patriots, selected our educational text-books, caused our Holy Bible to be re­written, promoted squandering of our taxpayers' money, instigated labor union strikes, abolished social customs and forced us to accept abhorrent and degrading racial practices which both white and black decent Americans heartily disapprove. And although you have wrought all these alterations in a land thousands of miles removed from your borders. you have maintained your own economic and social order, without change, since you took over the Russian Empire at gun-point almost four decades ago While we utterly loathe and despise your methods and hold your institutions in contempt, we only wish, in the interest of our own Republic. that our leaders possessed your spirit of self-preservation, your national pride and your unyielding determination to keep your enemies out of your country. Your comrades in the United States who are rendering the most effective service to the Communist cause are not your party members, as card-carrying Communists h::~ve no standing and command no re­spect in this country. Your devoted and dedicated followers here are known as "Liberals" and they are to be found in every sector of American life-in the _gov~rnment. in both Houses of Congress. in both maior political parties, in the ministry, in minoritv group organi'l:ations. in the schools, colleges and universities. in women's clubs. school boards. parent teacher organ­izations. in the oress. in libraries. in publishing houses. amon~ authors and fiction writers, radio and television commentators. business and professional groups, columnists. Pditorial writers, or~anized charity grouos and in all other forms of human activity in which Americans partirioate. These little "mothers helpers" who spread your oropaganda will strPnuously deny that thev are Communist sympathizers and thev will scream like banshees if called bv their prooer designation but it is they, collectively, who have carried the ball for you during the year~ in which your program has gradually been put into effect. The more intelligent amone1 thC'm know what they arP doin.!! and the-ir treasonable actions are deliberate but a large maiority of thC'm are simole-mindPd fools with an inborn. sheep-like tendency to fo1low the leader in order to save wear and tear on such brains as God gave them A Greek poet said in the long ago: "Let me write the songs of a country and I care not who makes its laws". In your oyer-all ulan for world domination. you paraohrased this sentiment to forcefully express your intentions toward all nations of the earth: 11Let us control the leaders of a country and we won't have to worry about its laws". You instituted your master plan for ideological conquest of the United Statf's more than thirtv years ago; it was accepted by our national leaders in 1933 and launched on its course. • How successfully your program has been carried out is proved by the record which shows that more th::.n half of the policies set out in your American Communist Partv platforms-before that party was absorbed bv our national Democratic Party-have been placed on the •tatute books of the United States or have been enacted into law by Executive order or Suoreme Court rulings. We are listing, briefly some of vour additional accomplishments in this Republic-not for your benefit as you, of course. keep a strict record of your victories here and check them off. one by one. as they are achieved, but for the information of such Americans as may not realize the extent to which your evil philosophy has penetrated the AmPrican economy. Your main obiective was to break down American power and in­fluence and to dethrone the United States as the strongest and most respeded nation on earth. This you planned to do by destrovin{{ American sovereignty and knocking out safeguards in our Constitution which were placed there bv the wise and understanding patriots who framed it. · Accordingly, you had your master minds draw up detailed plans for a world body which was later to be known as the United Nations and which your representatives here. including Alger Hiss, were to spring on gullible Americans as a noble experiment in achieving uni­versal peace. The cold-blooded fact is that it was, from its inception. an inter­national plot to render all nations impotent except Russia and to make puppets of such powerful countries as the United States and politically castrate them through the World Government which you meant to dominate. tThe fact that even as you were offering the United Nations to the world as an instrument of peace, you were busy as a one-armed paper hanger supplying Chinese Communists with men and materials to make war on the United States was beside the point and a matter which was supposed to be ignored by the American people whom you regard-often justifiably-as congenital idiots) You were fully aware of the weak point in our Constitution which provided that international treaties would supersede that instrument and you were working overtime in taking advantage of this loophole in order to get world government perfected to the point where Ameri­can citizens would become slaves and vassals subject to control and punishment by international law. Fifty-six alert American patriots in the United States Senate de· tected this flaw and the plot which was building up around it and jointly signed a measure known as the Bricker Amendment which would make the Constitution of the United States a supreme instru .. ment not subject to over-riding through treaties with foreign govern .. ments ,or a collection of foreign goyernments. This slowed you down, but not for long. The Kremlin went into a huddle and came up with the answer. The idea was put out, and echoed in Washington, that the passage of the Bricker Amendment would handicap the handling of our foreign policy and that it must not, under any circumstances, be allowed to pass. All the weak, inane and asinine arguments which were finally ef­fective in pigeon-holing this legislation, were urged upon the members of the Senate by your invisible agents who were on the job behind the scene. However, millions of good, plain, every-day Americans have caught on in the meantime and are seething with fury because of this treacherous attempt to invalidate provisions of the Constitution and are planning to storm the gates of the Senate by every means granted American citizens through petition to their lawmakers for the redress of wrongs. "' Temporarily, you are victor in the matter of preventing the passage of the Bricker Amendment but the show-down is yet to come. After all, your slaves over there don't vote for the re-election or defeat of the members of the American Congre~s. In fact, they don't vote for anybody or anything since they are nothing but political eunuchs. But to get back to the United Nations. When this international conspiracy was launched at San Francisco in 1945, after having been framed in Moscow in 1941, the American people were led to believe that its one and only objective was peace on earth and good will among men. They were not informed that scores of illegitimate auxiliaries were to be tacked on to it through which you planned to perfect your dream of World Communism. We are referring (as if you didn't know) to the Covenant on Human Rights, UNESCO, the World Court, Genocide, International Labor Organization and other subversive sub-divisions through which much of your dirty work was to be ac4 complished. Through the Covenant on Human Rights which you plan to have adopted by the United States Senate as a treaty, you propose to regu­late the most intimate and personal affairs of the American citizen and to institute indefensible social customs in this country. Through UNESCO which you were able to slip into the Charter and which is now in operation, you planned that already infiltrated American schools would take over children of kindergarten age as you do in Russia, remove them from parental influence as much as possible and poison their tender minds with the fatal virus of Communism. Before UNESCO was launched on its program your propaganda had already permeated American public schools, colleges and universities to such an extent that there were few institutions of learning where your educational agents did not either teach or, in some form, direct the curricula. UNESCO served to correlate your plans for communizing Ameri• can students and as a result, our educational institutions are spewing out thousands of pimply adolescents who spout Karl Marx all over the place. They know nothing about American history; they are totally un­familiar with fundamental American principles and they hold our matchless American form of government in contempt. In fact, most of them can't even spell but they can practically recite the Communist Manifesto backwards. Offhand, we would say that your heaviest infiltration has been ac­complished in the schools, although your penetration of the ministry and the churches runs it a close second. It is reliably estimated that we have seven thousand Protestant ministers in the United States who wilfully and knowingly follow the Communist Party line and dis• seminate your ideological views from the pulpit. Many Americans be .. lieve that this figure is greatly exaggerated while others regard it as the under-statement of all time. At any rate, you have demonstrated your superior wisdom as world propagandists in your assault on these two segments of our society. for the school children o.f today will shape our policies and way of life tomorrow and without the spiritual ministration of the churches, our civilization will wither and die. You ordained that the AmericatJ Free Enterprise System must be abandoned in favor of your form of economy and made suggestions as to how this should be accomplished. You pointed out that government competition with private industry was a sure means to this end and two Presidents of the United States practically busted their suspenders in setting up government projects designed to accomplish this aim. Another _of your propos~ls lor quietly liquidating this nation was your suggestion that pohttc1ans should spend it out of existence and scatter the taxpayers' money all over the world. Georgi , old boy, you hit the jackpot there. So meticulously have your ideas along this line been carried {Continued on Page 7) 954 lich ent .ole eri­md age igll to ef­lers ind ave lhis md ted age or m't leal ties our >w) urt, ive ve gu­ind ·ter ted hou jble ~ad ies ere ·ect ac­: try hat vho dis• be· our and the be ; as ;try :~.tes >cts .vas and 'ied J anuary, 1954 THE SOUTHER N CO NS ERVATIVE Page 7 MALENKOV (Continued from Page 6) out that every possible excuse for gouging American taxpayers has been advanced, including the argument that it is our moral responsi~ b ility to replace the worn-out bedsprings in a Mohammedan Sultan's harem. When the Chinese Communists were losing the war to the superior generalship of Douglas MacArthur, the Kremlin sent word down the line that our greatest military genius of all history must be relieved of his command. By a strange coincidence, the President of the United States came to the same conclusion and General MacArthur got the axe. When a courageous and unafraid American senator started ex­posing and smoking out your stooges in policy-making positions of government you decreed that your spokesmen here should give him t he business. From "Liberals" all over the country, there was a crescendo of moaning, groaning and screaming against "violation of academic free~ dom and civil liberties'' which would have made the kneelers at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem sound like deaf mutes. But your master stroke in planning the complete demoralization and annihilation of the American Republic was hit upon that day in October of 1928 when the bright boys in your Third International sat around the table and mapped the degrading racial program for the United States which politicians here have worked overtime to complete. Your blueprint perfected at that meeting called for agitating and, if necessary, stirring up "bloody revolution among the proletarians and peasantry in the Black Belt of the South' '. In the resultant con­fusion, it was said at your meeting, the Communists would seize power and destroy the American Republic even as they laid waste the Russian ~~~ - Southern Negroes, in general, refused to fall for the bait and did not play ball with you. By and large they remained good Americans with pride in their race and a desire to mix socially only with their own k ind . It was the r ich white trash of the North who went over-board on this issue and who have steered your program to near-completion, and especia lly ma rita lly fr ustrated females who sought to fill in the emojional vacuum with a <~ cause '' . They were joined by scores of old maid social workers "without pride of a ncestr y or hope of posterity" , intellectuals, r eformers, screwballs and yarious other species of human dri ftwood cast up on our ideological shore. There was no "Negro problem" in the South u ntil you created it a nd set your p uppets in act ion to agitate it. It was just a few centu ries al!o that we imported the first slaves from the wilds of Africa-some of w hom ate each other on the boat coming over-and their race has made extraordinary progress sine~ then and they enjoy comforts of civ ilization of wh ich their ju ngle ancestors never dreamed such as television, electric refrigeration, radios, automobiles and modern hou sing-. They are a small minority which has fared extremely well with rninimum contribution on their part, and yet, a stranger dropping down from Mars would get the impression. from the behavior of American p oli tic ians, that our colored population is the dominant race in the United States and one which had pioneered this country, conquered the mountains a nd swamps, girded the nation with steel and built an Empire from a wilderness. The Martian visitor would also ]earn that our leaders who propose •'crusades against corruption in government'' sometimes turn them into crusades again st the white race. All these objectives you have accompli shed through a carefully prepared plan conceived in Moscow under which you planted your spies in Washington agencies-in the State Department. in the Treas­u ry, in the War Department. in the Office of Str ategic Services and in every other branch of the Federal government, including the White House itself. Up to this point, we must concede that in the game you have been p laying w ith American politicians, yaur batting average has been high . but your dealings so far have been exclusively with our leaders and the grass roots reactions are just now coming in. The collective wrath of American citizens, when finally aroused, is a fearfu l and awesome sight and a spectacle your planners have not b een forced to take into consideration, up to this good hour. So perhaps this little bit of sound advice to you is not out of order­don't sell !he American people sh ort. An English King made that mistake way back in the 1770's, b ut when the shou ting had all died down and the smoke had cleared away, he had to mop up h is Red Coats with a blotter. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE. The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. Federal Government Has No More Right to Decide Segregation Than States Have to Print Currency HoUywood Slips Back In Efforts To Clean House It is too bad that some movie pro­ducers insist on making pictures that offend the standards of morals and decency which most Americans de-mand. In St. Louis recentJy, a religious group found it necessary to issue a ban against one of Howard Hughes' productions starring Jane Russell called the "French Line" on the ground of its immoral tone and its general unfitness as public enter­tainment. Hollywood is forever declaring its intentions to clean its "Augean stables" of filth but this proposal does not seem to have unanimous approval of the bigwigs of the in­dustry. Then, there was the case of the Hollywood actress who went to Korea Christmas and undertook to "boost the morale" of the fighting forces by taking off her clothes and appear­ing before them in a scant and sug­gestive bathing suit. We have no doubt that the young woman's act was a show-stopper or that the resulting wolf whistles must have drowned out the whirring of any bombing planes which may have been engaged in target practice in the vkinity. But there is a time and place for everyth ing and this includes the act of disrobing. The big middle of a bunch of lonely and homesick American so ld­iers would hardly seem to afford either. These three film personalities, at least, have contributed nothing to the good name of the cinema metropolis. The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. New Dealers Oppose Further Disclosures on Communism New Deal Democrats, smarting un­der disclosures which indicate a gen­eral cover-up of Communist spies in government during the Roosevelt and Truman administrations, are making strenuous efforts to hamstring the work of the McCarthy Committee in future. Ellender of Louisiana and McClel­lan of Arkansas have been especially active along this line, Ellender urg~ ing a reduction in appropriations for carrying on the Committee's work and McClellan planning to introduce a resolution to take the matter of in­vestigating Communism out o! Mc­Carthy's hands. It is not revealed whether the sen­ators are personally concerned in sup­pressing revelations which McCarthy may make in future or whether they are merely following their party's undeviating policy of whitewashing treason. The Federal government, as any half-way intelligent person knows, has only such powers as are dele­gated to it in the Constitution. Regulating the social and racial customs in the several States is dcl­initely not within its jurisdiction. Dwight D. Eisenhower pointed this out in a brilliant and forceful man­ner when he made several addreSSC'S in Texas long before his nomination as Chief Executive was ever contem­plated. He said that FEPC was a matter over which the Federal gov­ernment had no jurisdiction and one which only the States had the right to decide. As men often do, he seems to have changed pis mind since election and in the segregation fight now before the Supreme Court, his attorney g e n~ eral appeared before that body to plead the case or the minority against the majority of the citizens or the United States. The Federal authorities, including the Supreme Court, have no more right to decide this matter than the various States have to set up a mint and start coining money. When Mr. Eisenhower told the people of Texas of his belief in the prerogatives of the sovereign states, he rccc>ived unstintcd applause but any reference by his administr:1tion to Stales Rights in future, a!ter Browneli's performance be!ore the Supreme Court, will get nothing but a horse laugh or the Bronx Cheer. The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. Chickens Always Come Home to Roost Although Harry Truman was the most abject and spectacular failure as a president of the United Stat~s of any man ever to hold that office and even though he commands prac· tically no respect even from mem~ bers of his own party, there seemed to be a universal feeling or sh<~me and regret when he was caught red· handed in a falsehood concerning Harry Dexter White. Somehow, regardless of our l:1ck of regard for the crccupant, by lradi· tion we like to hold the White House and the office of president in high esteem and it is hard for us to admit that any one who has been honored to this revered position could de1ib· erately distort facts and employ mis· repre~ntations to save his own lace. Even we, who have less use for him than perhaps any individual in the nation, were sorry when the record proved his assertions untrue, and branded him with the Utle he has so often bestowed on others. The survival of the Americart Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. .. _ THE SOUTHERN CON~ERVATIVe January, 1954 Centralization Of Education Is Aim Of National Education Ass' n Efforts of unscrupulous politicians to concentrate power in Washington during recent years have been copied by the National Education Associa­tion which has sought to centralize American education and place it under the control of NEA. This association, which sponsors and approves UNESCO, not only dic­tates largely the procedure and cur­ricula of the public schools of the nation but also sends its representa­tives into various states to meddle in school affairs which are not of the slightest concern to any one except local school authorities. When some school in a certain state decides to dispense with the services or some undesirable teacher or official connected with the public schools, representatives of NEA swarm into the area like horse flies and start an "investigation" to see if some one's "academic freedom" has been violated or his "right of tenure" infringed upon. Instead of meeting these Meddle­some Matties at the door and telling them firmly to go back home and attend to their own business, many officials allow them to pry into local affairs, make slanted reports on the situation for publication in left-wing periodicals and smear those whose responsi bility .it is to try to operate American public schools in accord­t~ ncc with American principles. It is this organization which is largely responsible for creating in the minds of teachers and instructors in the schools the impression that their profession gives them a wider scope of responsibility than they act­ually possess. The school teacher in this country is hired for one job and one job only and that is to instruct pupils in fundamental subjects laid down in recognized American text-books. 1t is not his or her responsibility to make "citizens of the world" of the students in their classes, or citi­zens of any other place, including Mars. Local school authorities all over the country need to engage in earnest discussions with teachers when they hire them, inform them in no un­certain terms what their duties consist of and disabuse their minds of the big idea that they are to shape the student's political, ideological or social thinking. Local School Boards and parents of school children are the proper cus­todians of local schools but when school patrons seek to prevent the infiltration of subversive text-books into their class rooms, the agents of this National Education Association Gestapo rush into print in pink pub­lications and charge that these par­ents are trying to «ruin the public schools." H local school authorities can't run their own institutions without outside interference, they should resign, get out and let those take over who can. The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. Americans Strongly Reject UMT So They Get It Anyway Sentiment against Universal Military Training in the United States has proved . to be over­whelming which prevented the passage of such legislation by the Congress, time and again. But did this -prevent us from having Universal Military Train­ing? Not by a long shot. One thing Roosevelt taught politicians who were to come after him was that Congress can be hi­passed in achieving un-wanted legislation if you learn the angles and play it smart. Legislation by Executive decree, by Supreme Court decision or by simply going ahead and defiantly putting repudiated policies into effect any way, regardless of pub­lic opinion, was the formula he laid down and left as a heritage to his successors. In this way, Universal Military Training seems to be rapidly be­coming the national policy of the United States and the recruiting of young American manhood goes merrily on, even though we are not officially at war. These men are not being con­scripted to defend the United States but to fight the battles of foreign countries who have been engaged in war, off and on, for centuries and who will probably continue to fight, squabble and brawl until the end of time Also, we wonder if American mothers realize that, if NATO is finally perfected, their sons will be committed to serve in Europe for the next twenty years. And France is holding back from participating In NATO because the French want our soldiers committed to fifty years service over there. The survival of the American Republic depends on the passage of the Bricker Amendment by the Congress of the United States. General Eisenhower cannot do the job by himself. The same organized groups that forced Congress, step by step, deep into socialism are still organized. And there is a very, very slight majority of votes in Congress that stands for freedom as against socialism and communism. Therefore, the groups for the right must organ­ize throughout the entire nation, to inform and to arouse citizens in all walks to speak up to their representa­tives in Washington and to support them with their constituents at home. Only thus can the Members of Con­gress be shielded against the de­mands of the ever-present, highly or­ganized pressure groups, seeking to milk the Treasury! Only by such in­tensive and persistent educational work can the road be cleared for the needed retreat from socialism and Welfare State-ism.-Ralph W. Gwinn, Member of Congress from New York. If Beria Not Have Had Lived Here Been Shot But He Would Promoted Laventia P. Beria, former depu­ty premier of the Soviet Union was Number Two man in the Union of Soviet Socialist Repub­lics, as Russia is now called, for many years. He was Premier Malenkov's first deputy. In this capacity he exercised almost unlimited in­fluence over all Soviet Policy. He was also minister of internal affairs. As such, he controlled all secret police and intelligence, all normal police. the private armies of the Ministry of the Interior, the border guards, the intricate system of concentration camps and forced labor, all construction pro­jects in Siberia and most of the Far East. He was also the Soviet atomic energy head and held numerous other confidenUal and influential positions in the former land of the czars. But word got around that Beria was not playing ball with his com ~ rades and that he was trying to seize power in Russia and con­vert it to a ~~Capitalistic State". So the Soviet firing squad rub­bed him out on December 24 and presented him with a Christmas gift in the form · of a nice little round leaden bullet which they de­livered to the back of his head while he was looking the other wav. Beria should have moved over here long ago while he was still in one piece, gotten him a job in the government and engaged in treason to his heart's content. Instead of getting shot, he would probably have been promot­ed. Harry Dexter White wasn't the Big Shot in Washington that Beria was in Moscow. but he got around. He maneuvered the theft of the steel plates from the government mint and gave them to Russia so that the Soviets might make bil­lions of dollars without having to go to the trouble of asking us for it or having it given to them on a silver platter. He prepared the plan for Ger­many which dismantled that anti Communist country and gave the best part of it to Russia. He stole documents from various branches and agencies of the gov~ ernment for delivery to Russian agents and served as a member of a Communist spy ring operating within the government. Did he get shot? Don't be silly. He got a better job with a larger scope for his operations and a big raise in salary. That's how we treated our pam­pered traitors over here for twen­ty years and Beria was just a sap for not getting in on the deal in a country where there is a statute of limitations on treason, and no ooen season on domestic spies.

From a recent speech by John Foster Dulles - "Threatened with­drawal of foreign aid from our allies who wish to trade with the Soviet Bloc ls an attempted interference with their national sovereignty and their foreign policy. To all such efforts we are unalterably opposed.'' No, by all means, let's not interfere with any nation's national sovereign­ly- no sovereignty, that is, except that of the United States. Californians Grateful For A Non-Socialist Governor From all information we can gather !rom our California contacts, the conservative anti-Socialist element ot that State feels that in Governor Goodwin Knight, they will have strong and able leadership as long as he is in office. Of course he will be the recipient o! all the organized pressure that can be exerted by the "Okie" contingent there and it remains to be seen how firmly he will stand against it but it seems to be the consensus of conserva­tive opinion that he will not yield to the Fair Deal viewpoint as his predecessor did.
