Transcript THE SoUTHERN CoNSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. II FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JULY-AUGUST, 1960 No. 7-8 The United Nations Is The Devil's Workshop Here's The Record Our Statesmen Have Made. Read It And Weep! If the ACA INDEX put out after vast research by Americans for Constitutional Action and published by Human Events in Washington does not scare thinking Americans out of their wits and stir them to action, nothing will. The INDEX gives the stark and unbelievable record of the votes of all members of Congress on 77 leading issues over a period of years. It has been appraised by informed students of government as the most accurate summation of the political thinking of those who compose the American Congress that it is humanly possible to assemble. Boiled down and divested of all technicalities, it makes a test of whether each individual congressman or senator believes in , Constitu~ t ional Government or whether he favors a Socialist Welfare State. And the composite picture is frightening In the extreme for the odds are heavily in favor of those who would, in effect, overthrow the American form of government by their votes and substitute therefor a National Socialist State. Out of the total membership of Congress of 537-less three senators and seven congressmen who have not been In office long enough to establish a record-there are only 13 men (all in the House and none In the Senate) who have voted 100 per cent of the time on the side of Constitutional Government. These men are H. Allen Smith, Edgar W. Hiestand and Glenard P. Lipscomb, all of California; Elmer J. Hoffman of Illinois; Ancher Nelsen of Minnesota; Alexander Pirnie-, Howard W. Robison and Charles E. Goodell. all of New York; Gordon H. Scherer, Samuel L. Devine and William E. Minshall, all of Ohio; John A. Lefore, J r., of Pennsylvania and Bruce Alger of Texas. Members of the Senate with the best voting record are: John J. Williams of Delaware who has voted 99 per cent of the time for Constitutional Government; Barry Goldwater of Arizona, 98 per cent; Roman L. Hruska of Nebraska, 93 per cent; John M. Butler of Maryland, 93 per cent; Harry F. Byrd of Virginia, 92 per cent; Styles Bridges of New Hampshire, 92 per cent; Carl T. Curtis of Nebraska, 91 per cent; Norris Cotton of New Hampshire, 88 per cent; Andrew Schoeppel of Kansas, 87 per cent and Henry C. Dworshak of Idaho, 86 per cent. All other members of the Senate have lower percentages ranging down to zero in the cases of Pat McNamara of Michigan who was elected to the · Senate in 1954, Philip A. Hart of Michigan, elected in 1958 and Gale · W. McGee of Wyoming who was elected in 1958. All three of them have consistently voted against Constitutional Government and in favor of a Socialist State. To those who have not kept up with the record of their public servants in Washington, the most startling revelation is the voting record of the members of the Senate who were the principal and only serious contenders for the Democratic nomination as President of the United States. (No record of Richard Nixon is given, of course, for, as presiding officer of the Senate, he only votes in case of a tie.) The INDEX shows that of those Democrats offering to lead the nation in the perilous years ahead, John Kennedy of Massachusetts has voted against Constitutional Government 89 per cent of the time; Lyndon Johnson has voted against Constitutional Government 90 per cent of the time; Stuart Symington has voted against Constitutional Government 96 per cent of the time and Hubert Humphrey has voted against Con­stitutional Government 99 per cent of the time. Consider the fact that the Honorable Richard Nixon, almost sure candidate for the Republican nomination, would not have bettered the record if he had been a voting member and one is compelled to come up with the conclusion that pro-American citizens and the Republic are faced with a bleak and dismal outlook in this year of our Lord, 1960. Like every other evil thiniJ which has happened to the people of the American Republic since this country reCOIJ• nized the outlaw IJOVernment of Russia, the diabolic con· spiracy known as the United Nations was spawned in the Soviet Union. When Al9er Hiss and other domestic and forei9n enemies of the United States helped to set up the U.N. in Son Francisco in the SpriniJ of 1945, they were mere· ly implementiniJ plans formulated two years before by the forces of lnternotionol Communism who for decodes have been ployiniJ on international chess 9ame with the notions of the eorth as their powns. The actuol birth of this sinister and insidious or<Jonizotion occurred in the Capital City of the Soviet Socialist Republic duriniJ the Moscow Confer­ence from October 19 to October 30, 1943 with V. M. Molo­tov as the midwife. assi~ted by dupes from the United States, Great "Britain and China. At that Conference the <Jroundwork was laid for what was later to become the central axis of International Communism whose objective is to promote Soviet domination of the world and whose lotest conquests are in Cuba, South Korea and Japan. The Soviet Union has always been quick to take responsibihty for every achievement or invention of the 20th century but has strangely failed to advance its authentic claim as the original sponsor of the United Nations. In view of the Soviets' propensity for boasting of their accomplish­ments, their silence concerning their responsibility for the original idea of a United Nations would seem to constitute a mystery as unanswer­able as what happened to Judge Crater or who promoted Peress. Actu­ally their reticence concerning the origin of the United Nations stems from their deliberate intention to have that body appear to have sprung up as a spontaneous and voluntary medium for discussing and solving international issues and one which came into being through mutual agreement of the participating nations. Instead it was conceived in Moscow as a springboard for World Communism and as a base of activity for the Soviets in their campaign for world domination. And that is what it is. The illusion that the United Nations was set up at San Francisco was carefully nurtured for the benefit of gullible Americans who were goggle-eyed over the prospect, at long last, of finding peaceful solutions to the problems which were responsible for wars all over the world. The fact is that the idea was hatched in Moscow during the Moscow Conference in 1943 and where Soviet leaders, together with trusting. dupes from the Unjted States, Great Britain and China made preliminary plans for what was to become the Communist underground operation for world conquest. Information about the Moscow Conference is vague and hard to come by but from available records, it is learned that the tough old Bolshevik V. M. Molotov was the host and presiding genius on that oc­casion and associated with him were such trained and seasoned revolu­tionaries as K. E. Voroshilov, M. M. Litvinoff, A. Y. Vishinsky, V. A. Sergeyev. A. A. Gryzlov, G. F. Saksin and a flock of propaganda experts from the Kremlin. At the conference these vicious wolves from the Russian Steppes were pitted against such comparatively political innocents as Cordell Hull and Averill Harriman and a few lesser lights from the United States; Anthony Eden, Sir Archibald G. Kerr and Sir Hastings Ismay and at­tendants from Great Britain and several unnamed representatives from China who sat in on the Conference from time to time but who did not attend regularly. (Continued on Page 2) Millions of America ns Think It-The Souther n Cons ervative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Score Another Victory For The Communist Cause Although there was widespread protest against such action, the Senate of the United States follow­ed the House of Representatives in voting to donate government land on which a memorial will be erected to the late Mary McLeod Bethune, Negro Communist front­er. The South Is The Political Outcast Of Democratic Party Slap-Happy Spenders To Really Go Into Action When C o n g r e s s re-convenes around the 15th of August the floor of the House and of the Sen­ate will become vast campaign headquarters for the candidates for President of the two parties. The repeated insinuations of Senator John F. Kennedy of Massa­chusetts to the effect that he does not need the support of the South in his campaign for nomination as President of the United States, merely emphasizes the contempt in which left-wing politicians from the North and East hold the South. The fact that this woman was a Negro was of course an influential factor with a large number of law­makers and the further fact that she was a Communist fronter had its appeal also to the same ele­ment and being both a Negro and a Communist fronter made a com­bination that was apparently irre­sistible. Their regard for this area of the Republic has been dwindling stead­ily since Roosevelt's betrayal of Southerners at Philadelphia in 1936 when his henchmen repealed the two-thirds rule of nominating candi­dates. Today the South is a political outcast of the party which it once dominated and must take the crumbs that the Socialist leadership tosses in its direction. The sky will be the limit and no holds barred in the excessive squandering of taxpayers' money which will be indulged in by par­tisans of both candidates in the wild race for votes at the Fall As concrete evidence that the South is without influence and is election. only a beggar at the Democratic back-door, the candidate for the Demo­cratic nomination whom many Southern States endorsed has repudiated it by denying his status as a "Southerner" and proclaiming himself as "Westerner.'' Neither the freedom nor the possessions of the people will be safe during this time and probably the only things that won't be given away will be the objects that are nailed down. And so a memorial will be erect­ed on government land in Wash­ington to a woman who joined up with twenty-three different or­ganizations of a pro-Communist nature, many of them committed to the overthrow of the American government. By this action he has indicated that he is ashamed of the South and does not want to be associated with it in his ambition to climb into an office for which he is in no way fitted. It will be a case of taxpayers being forced to finance legislation that will spell their own destruc­tion when the orgy of Socialist measures which promise every .. thing to everybody start falling into the hopper. The only consolation to be gleaned from his repudiation is that, since the revelation of his voting record in the Senate throughout the years in which he opposed American Constitutional Government ninety out of one hundred times, all decent Southerners, in their hearts, have just cause to be ashamed of him. By the way, can anyone tell us what happened to the Spirit of Camp David? The right of the citizen to own private property was recorded in the Constitution of the United States but this right was cancelled out by the Sixteenth Amendment. The greatest test of the efficiency of a government is its ability to preserve the freedom of the indi­vidual and to protect private prop­erty of the citizen. Our personal nomination for one of the most sinister characters currently involved in world in .. trigue-Dag Hammarskjold, Secre­tary General of the United Nations. The United Na+ionS-~c.ntinu•d f,.m Pag• 11 At first the talk at the Conference centered on ways for winning the war, on closer cooperation between the "allies," on increased aid to Russia from the United States and for complete extermination and unconditional surrender of Germany to insure that German economy would be destroyed and that nation never again become a military power. Discussion then subtly veered toward plans to ~<carry the collabora­tion of the four powers beyond the period of hostilities" and principles were taid down for a 40broad system of international cooperation and security to include all other peace-loving nations, great and small." lt was from the discussions at this Conference that the United Nationc:: grew and for all practical purooses it was born at that time. Later, from August 21 to September 28, 1944, delegates to the Dun­barton Oaks Conference went through the motions of laying the founda­ti011. for this a1leged peace organization which had already been laid in Moscow. At San Francisco from April to June, 1945, details were worked out with ~reat fanfare and world-wide publicity by Alger Hiss, Harry Dexter White and other "architects of the United NationS" while Soviet agents who represented its real .. architects" hovered near to supervise the final stru"tllre. The United Nations Charter was approved by a careless and un~ ir~formed United States Senate in the summer of 1945 whose members, like !P.wm-=tkers in most other countries, were frantic and grasping at str?ws in desoerate attempts to out an end to wars and to set up a device for i,.,...urin.P. peace in a troubled world. Sf'l when Al,.,er Hiss who had been delegated to fly to Washington with the TJnited Nations Charter came down out of the clouds and ct .. <>,....,•icall_v presented that document to members of the Upper House of r:onP.:resr every senator - with the exception of Langer of North r..,J·'lt~ and Shiostead of Minnesota who had read it - walked into the ~~v i et trao and voted aoproval of what they sincerely thought was an i'"'"'"""rfl ~·if'ln?l or~anization set up in good faith to put down aggression a 11 '"'"'r the world. Tr··ay, fiftPen yem-s after approval of this Charter, there is more a"""'res~'o~"~. strife. turmoil, violence, hatred and cold war throughout tJ-..,. world than in any other period in history and a state of near Anarchy i:. "1rr't3lent among various nations of the earth. Also, the United States ,,,•.,;,." nccupied lofty eminence among world powers at that time is now C(\rf ... 11y hated by a large section of the world's population. \"/hat members of the Senate could not foresee, of course, was that Sovie~- Russia would constitute the dominant force in the United Nations witt} three votes in the General Assembly to one for every other nation, inch1<'ing the United States; that the Soviets would control five other r'l·ellite votes and that their forces would be augmented by small African. Asian and Caribbean nations later to be admitted as members and which would solidify the Communist bloc. Neither was there any way for them to know that International Communism was to rear its ugly head in that body and emerge as the most ruthless aggressor in all history and practically the only one with which the United Nations would be called on to deal but would be helpless to do so because of the aggressor's built-in power in the organization alleged to be set up to put down such aggression. In other words a world body intended to put a stop to aggression was so stymied by a powerful aggressor within its own set-up that its cbjectives were defeated before it started. Accordingly, for the fifteen years of its existence, the United Nations delegates have done little except sit on their hands and draw their fabulous salaries, paid in large part by the United States, while the Soviet Union has gobbled up territory and peoples in frightening proportions through acts of aggression which the U.N. was supposed to suppress. It was an act of aggression when Hungarian freedom fighters were heartlessly mowed down by tanks and machine guns in the streets of Budapest but the United Nations was helpless to interfere, except through innocuous resolutions, because the aggressor was its own most powerful member. It has been an act of aggression every time Communist China has attacked the islands lying off the Coast of Formosa and shelled the fortifications of Quemoy and Matsu but the non-member aggressor in this case has a thirty-year treaty of "friendship, alliance and mutual assistance" signed on February 15th, 1950, with the Soviet Union, the United Nations' most influential member so what does the U.N. do? Nothing. The conquest of Tibet by the Chinese Communists was an act of aggression which repulsed and horrified all civilized people of the world but the ideological brothers of the aggressors from their secure place in the United Nations encouraged and cheered them on. It was an act of aggression every time an American plane was shot down in the Soviet Union or when American prisoners were held as hostages by Communist countries but the United Nations was unable to turn a hand because acts of aggression apparently cease to be aggression when committed by Communists. It was an act of aggression when Castro's bearded bandits 5eized the ~overnment of Cuba by illegal force of arms but since he was merely the puppet of Moscow, action by the United Nations was out of the ouestion. It was an act of aggression when the Soviet Union incited thousands of South Korean students to violence and mob action which overthrew the government of Syngman Rhee but if the United Nations chirped in opposition, nobody heard it. It was an act of aggression when Communist-inspired mobs of students in Turkey threw Menderes out of office but the silence in the United Nations concerning the uprising was so thick it could be cut with a knife. It was acts of ag~ression when thousands of natives in Africa formed lawless mobs and attacked legally elected officials of the govern­ment there, but the only expressions from officials of the United Nations indicated sympathy for the a~gressors. It was an act of aggression when Moscow assembled more than a million Japanese Communists to riot in the streets of Tokyo in protest against the peaceful visit of an American President to that country but from all indications the United Nations couldn't have cared less. Some day the American people will wake up to the realization that the United Nations is the Devil's Workshop wherein are hatched all the schemes for the demolition of the Western nations, the destruction of Christiart civilization and the incorporation of all its member countries into a vast Communist-controlled One World Government with slave status for all and justice and human freedom for none. When that day comes - if it's not too late - those Americans will join the clamor which is reverberating from ocean to ocean in ever rising crescendo - "Take the United States out of the United Nations and the United Nations out of the United States." July-August, 1960 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVl Page l There's Only One Way To Go From Was The Hidden Hand of Treason Where We Are And -That Is Up Back Of The Vote On 'Protocol'? The withering contempt which 1,500,000 Japanese have shown for the United States and the unprecedented rioting by the Communist pop­ulation there which caused the cancellation of President Eisenhower's , visit to that country provides a terrible and costly illustration of the fallacy of internationalism as a policy of government. The men who fashioned the American government were possessed of foresight, vision and understanding of fundamental principles which simply does not prevail today. They were not opportunists grasping for power or struggling to perpetuate themselves in office but rather were concerned in a long-range program of orderly government which would give their descendants a maximum of freedom, their rulers a minimum of power and a self·operating system which would insure internal security and inspire respect from all other nations of the world. There was not an Internationalist among them and the absurd sug· gestion that the citizens of the United States be compelled by law to give financial support to foreign peoples or that a President of the United States would traipse all over the world making commitments, pacts and agreements and promising gifts of money right and left would have filled them with horror and deadly apprehension for the future of the country for which they had made such willing and magnificent sacrifice. The basis of the philosophy of those great men was that leaders of the American government should maintain friendly relations with all nations and enter into entangling alliances with none, a theory of un­parallelled soundness and which has now been so thoroughly vindicated. By disregarding this wise counsel of men who knew what they were doing, we now are in the humiliating position of having reversed their sage injunctions and find ourselves involved in entangling alliances with all nations and enjoy full and unrestricted friendship with none. Whether the American Republic can recapture the veneration and respect universally accorded it in a happier era of history and can summon forth the leadership which will enable it to climb back to the high pinnacle of power and prestige it enjoyed until Internationalists and One-Worlders took us over, is a matter that is in the lap of the gods. Surrender Of Sovereignty To World Court Would. Be Act Of Treason A vote by the Congress of the United States to place American citizens under the jurisdiction of the United Nations' World Court Is treason to the Constitution, says L. E. Whitney of Chicago, business man and astute student of Govern-rnent. In substantiation, Mr. Whitney points to ten provisions of the Con­stitution, not one of which has been deleted and he also cails at­tention to the fact that the people of the United States have not sur­rendered their sovereignty and are unalterably opposed ~a doing so. The ten reasons why the Ameri­can Republic ca11not and must not submit to World Court jurisdic· tion are outlined by Mr. Whitney as follows: The judicial power of the United States is vested in one Supreme Court. The judicial power of the United States is to be exercised by Judges appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. The judicial power of the United States extends to all cases in law and equit~ arising under the Con· stitution, laws of the United States, or Treaties. Exercise of the judicial power of the United States extends to all What shall it profit the taxpay­ers if their representatives in Con· gress are cunning, crafty and skilled in the art of compromise but haven't an iota of respect for Constitutional Government? cases affecting Ambassadors, Pub­lic Ministers and Consuls. Exercise of the judicial power of the United States extends to all cases of Admiralty and Mari­time jurisdiction. Exercise of the judicial power of the United States extends to all controversies to which the United States is a party. Exercise of the judicial power of the United States extends to controversies between a State or its Citizens and foreign States Citi­zens or Subjects. Trial of all crimes, except im· peachment, to be by jury and held in the State where the crime was committed. Amendment of the Constitution requires affirmative vote of three· fourths of the States. The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respec· tively, or to the people. Appropos of the surrender of American sovereignty to a foreign body, Mr. Whitney quotes this warning by George Washington: "Let there be no change by usurpa· tion, for though this in one instance may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed." Although the Creator provided that man could dig his living out of the soil, knock it out of the trees or draw it out of the water, millions prefer to chisel it out of the Federal government, We do not charge that a sneaky and underhanded attempt was made in the Senate on May 26th to deceive the people of the United States and accomplish by subter­fuge an objective which is over­whelmingly opposed by all right· thinking Americans, because we do not have the evidence that this is true. But we do claim that a very peculiar action took place in that body on that date and that juris­diction over American domestic affairs was almost voted into the World Court, a proposal which the Senate had to hastily abandon some months ago when a storm of protest was visited on it by out· raged citizens. After the attempt to repeal the Connally amendment to the resolu­tion accepting jurisdiction of the World Court was defeated early last Spring by protesting American citizens, we said editorially in the March edition of the Southern Conservative: "As a result, it is reported that sponsors of repeal are backing off and will not press the matter further. However, we should not be deceived by such tactics for the Reds never give up - they merely lay low for awhile. When public indignation seems to have been allayed, they start all over again and usually put the proposition over in the long run." That seems to be what was at­tempted on May 26. Up for con­sideration by the Senate was a spate of Executive Agreements, Conventions and Protocols under a general preamble which nobody, including members of the Senate, could be expected to remotely un· derstand: LOUISIANA LEGISLATURE ASKS FOR REPEAL OF INCOME TAX AMENDMENT The Louisiana State Legislature has passed the resolution memor­ializing Congress to submit for rat­ification the proposed 23rd amend­ment to the Federal Constitution which would, among other things, repeal the Sixteenth or Income tax amendment and take government out of competition with private business. This makes the fourth State to act out of the 36 which are nec­essary in order to compel the sub­mission of the amendment. It is going to be a hard, uphill fight'to get this done for organized corruption in W a s h i n g t a n is strongly entrenched and only an awakened citizenship can get the job done. It is estimated by students of ~overnment that the repeal of the Sixteenth amendment would do more than any one factor to halt the constant and uninterrupted flow of Socialistic Ie~islation re· suiting from each and every ses· sian of Congress. Efforts will be stepped up to get action by a large number of the necessary State Legislatures during 1961 when a majority of the nation's lawmaking bodies will be in session. The agreement for facilitating the international circulation of visual and auditory materials of an educational, scientific and cul­tural character; a Convention on the territorial sea and the contig­uous zone; a Convention on the High Seas; an Agreement entitled 'Convention on fishing and conser­vation of the living resources of the high seas;' a Convention on the Continental Shelf; and an Optional Protocol of signatures concerning the compulsory settlement of dis­putes." It turned out that the nigger in the woodpile was hidden in the last few lines concerning the "Pro­tocol for compulsory settlement of disputes .. but that wasn't evident at first. Senator Johnson of T ex a s moved that the "Agreements, Con­ventions and Protocol" be voted on "en bloc" which is just a fancy way of suggesting that they all be lumped together and voted on in one gob without any one knowing what was in any of them. This was done and every senator present voted for approval except four-Byrd of West Virginia, Frear of Delaware, Goldwater of Ari­zona and Russell of Georgia, a ma­jority of 77 to 4. Meantime somebody apparently read the "Protocol" deaf and dis· covered that it contained a device for transferring- American Sover­eignty to a World Court and re· consideration of that section of the agreements was demanded. On the second vote, there were 49 yeas and 30 nays which was less than a two·thirds majority thereby defeating the 'Protocol." We repeat the advice given in the March edition of the Southern Conservative. The Reds never give up so good Americans should keep their eyes peeled because the at· tempt to repeal the Connally amendment will bob up again in unexpected places. It is clear that many of the Senators did not understand at first what was in the package they were voting on; a greater number of them did understand but voted for it any way but what we would like to know and we imagine many others would like to know is who framP.d and tried to slip the deal over? In the meantime let us, as Am­ericans, never forget that any at­temot to surrender the sovereignty of the United States to a World Court is treason against this country. ______ _ The right to tax has become confused in the minds of Washing­ton politicians with the right to seize the possessions and confis­cate the property of American citi­zens. Another step toward Socialized Medicine was taken in Texas re­cently with the announcement from Austin that $200.000.00 of Federal funds had been allocated to the New Braunfels Hospital and the Santa Rosa Hospital in San An­tonio.

THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: Both Sides Win When The United Nations Arbitrates The latest example of the man­ner in which the United Nations "solves" problems of the world was in the case of the kidnapping by Israel of a citizen of Argentina who was taken across the ocean to stand trial for alleged war crimes in World War II. The victim's name is Adolf Eichman and he is charged with having disposed of many thousands of occupants of the concentration camp in Ger· many over which he had super· vision. Taking advantage of a prevalent state of anarchy in the world and without jurisdiCtion in the matter, rP .,re sel'l ~ atives of Is rae I are claimed to have gone into Argen· tina and seized Eichman and trans· ported him out of the country without invoking any of the legal technicalities formerly necessary in such cases. Ar)?'entina protested and ap· pe'!'lled to the United Nati_ons. So the Security Counc1l of the U.N. by a vote of 8 to 0 passed an innocuous resolution mildly slap· ping Israel on the wrist and used expressions intended to soothe Ar· gentina for the violation of its sovereignty. Whether Eichman would be re· turned to Argentina to wait until he could be e'<tradited by legal process or not was left dangling in t.he air. One Western delegate is quoted by the Associated Press as having contemptuously described United Nations action in the matter as fol· lows: "Both sides won. Argentina got approval of her resolution and Israel gets to keep Eichman." THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE And All The Time We Thought It Was The Communists Who Were Going To Bury Us On June 7, press reports with a Washington dateline revealed ~hat the President had taken a long step toward protecting the Umted States from an enemy which apparently poses an alarming threat to the security of the American Republic. On that date he aSked for a full-scale investigation of Nazi activities in the United States. Presumably he had authentic reason to assume that it is the Nazis who are inspiring revolts here and throughout the world and causing governments to topple over between suns; that Nazis are swarming all over the State Department and other Federal agencies in Washington; that they are also infiltrating the universities and churches in the United States and are responsible for the constant stream of Marxist legislation which has flowed out of the American Congress for the past twenty-five years. Stupid dolt that we are, we thought it was the Communists who were doing all that. In fact, thousands upon thousands of alarmed American citizens have been praying that during his tenure of office, the President would appoint a strictly non-partisan, top-flight Commission to make an authentic and unbiased study of Communism in this country for the information of officials and agencies of government authorized to deal with the situation and for the benefit of the American people generally and have been amazed and astounded beyond measure that he has taken no action whatever along this line. Many of them figured that the reason for his failure or refusal to show any interest in the subject of Communist infiltration of govern­ment and of educational and religious institutions was because he was so busy entertaining heads of state at Camp David and in making plans to visit certain foreign countries and to attend summit conferences that he just didn't have the time to worry about the Communist menace. But that wasn't it at all. Apparently, he knew all along that it was the Nazis who were working day and night for the overthrow of the American government and planning to take over the American Republic and bury its people. According to this same press report, the President's decision to act promptly in the "Nazi emergency" was based on a request of a Mr. Bernard Abrams of Jersey City, New Jersey, who following the appearance of three or four swastikas in New York, told the President that there was a neo-Nazi wave sweeping the country and requested that immediate steps be taken by the White House in the matter. Demonstrating his capacity for swinging into action in the face of a real threat to our internal security, the President immediately asked for the investigation and expressed the belief that "some provisions of the new Civil Rights Law could be invoked against the hatemongers." Meantime some of the diehards 'who are still convinced that the Soviets may just possibly be back of some of the things that are going on, are thinking of getting the powerful and influential Mr. Bernard Abrams, who seems to have a drag with the White House, to intercede for them with the President in the hope that Communism may be in­cluded along with Nazism in the proposed invzstigaUon-just on the off chance that they may find a Communist saboteur or two lurking around in the bushes. We've Ree~ched A Sad Day In The Life Of A Great Nation In keeping with the most peculiar foreign policy ever put into effect since governing systems were first inaugurated for the guidance of man, we have given Japan millions of dollars since the end of World War II. Just how many millions, or billions, will probably never be known for such information is not available. to common taxpayers. This money was given to Japan for the purpose of buying back their friendship after we had whipped them to their knees. They used it to rehabilitate and modernize their factories and have done so to the extent that they are flooding this country with cheap goods which have practically closed the doors of· many American in­dustries- especially the textile business-which is at the mercy of cheap Japanese labor and cannot successfully compete with low Japa­nese living standards. Representatives of the affected industries have appealed to Wash­ington time and again for relief but have been told that foreign aid to Japan and preferential treatment of that country in the matter of im­ports will continue in our campaign to influence people and win friends. So the President decides to visit the country where so many millions of American dollars have been strewed around like confetti in the international friend-winning contest and what happens? In the country where we have been buying friendship with dollars, 1.500,000 Japanese form frightening mobs and actually threaten physical danger to the President of the United States if he so much as sets foot in the country. The !ncident no~ only demonstrates that friends cannot be pur­chased With money l1ke a side of bacon, but is also proves how smart early American leaders were when they warned those who came after them to attend to their own business and keep their noses out of the affairs of foreign nations. But Washington has not learned anything from this and the summit incident and every potential candidate for the presidency indicates that the same idiotic and foolhardy policies will be pursued no matter which one of them is elected. Truly we have come to a sad state of affairs in the life of a great nation. July-August, 1960 There's No Difference In Human Nature­Whether North or South In Leominster, Massachusetts, recently a mob of more than 31000 enraged White persons gathered outside the jail where ten Negro suspects in a mass criminal attack on· a white teen-age girl, were held. As the Negroes were led from the building there were screams from the mob of ''lynch them, hang them, break their necks," accord­ing to press reports. The White girl's 20-year old boy friend who was with her was over­powered and beaten. Since this was in Massachusetts and not in Mississippi, it will prob­ably not get much publicity but It shows that human nature is the same whether North or South is involved. It is not a question of lo­cation but of decenr,y and the re­action of the Massachusetts mob to these black beasts ln human form was perfectly natural. TO READERS OF THE SOUTHERH COHSERVATIVE With the exception of ten days or so which we will spend with our family in Houston, we will be engaged in our usual pursuit of the elusive dollar dur­ing the time between the ap­pearance of the Ju!y-August edi­tion and our next edition in Sep­tember. This is necessary because the subscriptions to the paper do not in any measure provide the necessary funds to keep the pub­lication going. We seldom make an appeal for funds through the columns of the Southern Conservative, but once in a while we do as in the present instance. We see nothing wrong in such appeal­it is only that we are timid in such matters and hate to put ourselves in the attitude of ask­ing favors. But, on the other hand, we see no reason why people of means should not be honored to help financially when we have been so glad to do the things they have been unable, or unwilling, to do, and that i:; to stick our neck out just as far as it would go in the fight for restoration of Constitutional government in the United States. So, when we make trips into the office throughout the sum· mer. we will be very happy if we find some substantial chetks there from those good Ameri­cans who have so often wished us well but have let it go at that. From a subscriber at Waco, Texas: "It is amazing to me to know that a soft-voiced. feminine gentlewoman like you can be so powerful in 'slaying the dragon' with your pen." From a reader in New Orleans: "Every time I read an edition of the Southern Conservative I say: 'She's done it again.' I think you must b~ inspired." (Editor's note: We are only inspired by love and hate-love for our country and hatred for those who are betraying it.) July-August, 1960 English Bishop Has Novel Plan To Solve Problem of the Aged Everything runs in circles and most of the talk right now is about the aged members of our popula~ tion and what to do about them. In this connection, a Bishop of the Church of England has made a notable contribution to the sub­ject by offering what he considers the most practical way to handle the situation. In a speech to the British Med­ical Association recently, Dr. Rob­ert Mortimer, Bishop of Exeter, ac­cording to press reports suggested to the physicians present that a good plan in the case of the aged ill would be just to let 'em die and hinted that it might not be a bad idea if their doctors prescribed drugs which would put the poor creatures out of their misery. Such a spirit of mercy and com~ passion on the part of the good Bishop is really touching and is just another proof that there is no problem involving the human race which modern men of the cloth are not willing and ready to pitch in and solve. If the Bishop has a mother-in­law and she should become iiJ, our advice to her is to select her own doctor just in case her son-in-law might bring in one who is inclined to take the latter's ghoulish advice. Communist Opposition Gets Loyalty Affidavit Repealed Through the medium of the cowardly voice vote, instead of a written record, members of the Senate recently repealed a require­ment for non-subversive affidavits from college students receiving loans or grants under the 1958 Defense Education Act. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE God Give Instead of Us Men Weasels The qualities of courage, backbone and firmness on the part of sovereign citizens in this terrible hour of national peril are to be admired more than at any time in history, and all good Americans should pay tribute to those who have the character and the integrity to stand up and fight the demagogues in Washington who are betraying their country around the clock. In this connection, we are reproducing a letter recently written to a member of the Senate, Estes Kefauver, by a man who has more understanding of the American governing system and of the funda­mental principles on which the American Republic is based than Ke­fauver will have if he lives to reach the century mark. The letter was written by Mr. A. G. Heinsohn, Jr., textile manu· facturer of Sevierville, Tennessee whose industry ha.s suffered more than any business should be called on to endure through the sloppy and addled·brained thinking of Internationalists in the Congress whose sole concern is for the interests and well·being of foreigners and who willingly sacrifice the employers and the workers in the United States when writing their crack·pot theories into legislation. Mr. Heinsohn's letter follows: In response to a simple request asking you to protect em­ployees, stockholders and local merchants by voting against con­tinued expenditures for foreign aid, your reply of June 9 is in the manner of a master instead of a servant. Indeed, in the tone of an all-knowing father speaking to his incompetent children you infer that you know what's good for us and that we don't. Well, since we do the work, since we pay the taxes and since we cast the votes, maybe a little plain talk is in order. Never forget you placed your hand on the Bible and you swore to protect our liberty and our property as prescribed in the Constitution of the United States of America. In the Constitution each citizen is guaranteed the God-given right to work out his own destiny without interference from bureaucratic masters. Our Christian inheritance is based upon the responsibility of the individual to solve his own problems, trusting in God and not in politicians. In spite of a ll this, you now have the effron tery to in fer that Jt is good for us to be forced to dig our own graves because YOU believe that security and friends can be bought with OUR MONEY, OUR JOBS, and OUR PAYROLLS. You tell us this in spite of the fact that after pouring some 80 billion of our tax dollars down the foreign aid rat hole, we have no security, no friends and Commu­nism is right on our doorstep in Cuba. To please your foreign friends you plan to continue voting OUR JOBS and OUR MONEY into their laps. But who elects you to office? We, or your foreign friends? Pro'-Communist opposition to such affidavits has been pronounc- / ed and a campaign for its repeal has been waged by many co11ege heads and extreme left-wing mem­bers of Congress as well as Red groups and individuals all over the country. In view of your violating your sacred oath, in view of your master complex, in view of your insistence in voting us into self-destruction, we are compelled to call attention to your faith­lessness to, and misrepresentation of your own people; the tax­payers, the voters, the citizens of Tennessee. Now Tennessee is just one State, Estes Kefauver is just one sen­ator and Mr. Heinsohn is just one citizen. It is not difficult to imagine how the whole trend toward National Socialism and eventually to World Communism could be halted in double-quick time if business men throughout the nation would perform like American citizens instead of weasels and, in a body, would rise up and tell their representatives in Washington what they can, and what they cannot, do with their money, their property and their rights and freedom. Substituted for repeal of the af­fidavit were penalties ranging up to five years imprisonment and a $10,000 fine for anyone who applies for or receives any pay­ment under the act while he is a member of a subversive organiza­tion. We have said before and we repeat that no loyal American ob­jects to proclaiming his loyalty to his country and any one who ob­jects to this oath, whether he be college professor, member of Con­gress, student or what-not does so simply because he, himself, is un­able to truthfully and conscient­iously proclaim his allegiance to the United States. The Baltic Women's Council, 195 Linwood A venue, Bogota, New Jersey of which Mrs. Mall Jurma is President, is doing effective work in fighting Communism. The Baltic countries were the first vic­tims of Soviet aggression and their vigilant efforts to warn Americans of the fate which col'ld await this country are understandable and should have the warm appreciation and cooperation of all patriotic Americans. The voters don't seem to realize it but it is up to them, in the final analysis, w'hether those who represent them in Washington are clear­headed, sound-thinking and responsible statesmen or glorified second­story men who rob the taxpayers while they sleep. Georgia Judge Minces No Words Concerning Supreme Court Rulings Speaking before an Atlanta Civic group recently, Judge Jule W. Fel­ton of the Georgia Court of Ap­peals stated emphatically that the Warren Court in Washington on that day when it ordered the mix­ing of the races in the public schools, exceeded its Constitution­al authority. 11Separate and equal facilities is the law of the land and those op­posing the 1954 decisions are not misguided, ignorant, intolerant radicals" the veteran of 41 years at the bar said, and added: "The decisions of the Court act­ing beyond the scope of its power are wholly and completely void and are entitled to no respect and obedience any time or anywhere." In London recently, an Ameri­can Negro entertainer was hissed and booed when he announced he was going to marry a female Swede and a parade was formed in pro­test. This shows that decent people in other places than the U.S. re­sent degenerate and debasing ra­cial mixing. p,ge 5 Lawmakers Don't Want Their Swindle Sheets Made Public The effort which has been made over the years to persuade mem~ hers of Congress to break down and let the public in on their ex~ pense acounts is being repeated at the current session of Congress. Senator John J. Williams of DeJa~ ware is leading the fight. The idea back of it is that the taxpayers who put up the money to finance members of both Houses on jaunts around over the world have a right to know how this money is expended and that the lawmakers with itchy feet should file expense accounts just like or­dinary people in private business. Heretofore junketing solons have fought like wildcats against fur­nishing this information and some of those who have strongly opposed tax deductions for business men on items of entertainment have been the most reluctant to reveal some of their own expenditures in Paris night clubs and other hot spots of foreign countries. However, the Senate has finally passed a bill requiring public dis~ closure of such expense accounts and the only hitch now is to get the House to do likewise. If the past is an index to the future, it is a safe bet that the mea­sure will die on the calendar of the House, and that the swindle sheets of Washington statesmen will con­tinue to repose in top-secret files. BROOKLYNfSf TALK OF . GIDEONESE STARTLES EVEN PTA OFFICIALS Control of public schools by lo­cal school boards is "the greatest weakness in American Education,'' according to one Harry D. Gideon~ ese, president of Brooklyn College. This latest plea for Collectivist Education was made to 2,000 dele­gates to the PTA convention in Philadelphia in May and is said to have startled even PTA officials who are noted for having screwy speakers address their conventions, who make all sorts of outlandish proposals. · Local control of schools by school boards even constitutes Creeping Socialism, the speaker as­serted while his audience sat on their hands. As well as any one could make sense out of what the Brooklyn Col~ lege head said, he believes that Federal control is the answer. Remember that as long as States Rights were unimpaired and the Republic was free, there was no danger to our security or our sov~ ereignty from the United Nations or from One-World Government propaganda. One-Worlders can on· ly take over a nation after break­ing down its local units of govern­ment and creating division among its people. Almost anybody ran get a hand~ out of some kind from Washing~ ton but how many American citi­zens feel that they have the pro­tection from their government that the people of this country once had-protection from tyranny and injustice and protection of their rights and freedoms as guaranteed in the Constitution?

Aristotle referred to a democracy as "mob rule ... Under Grecian "democracy" Pe­ricles restricted citizenship rigor­ously to the sons of Athenian fathers and excluded the slaves and aliens who were more numerous than the free population. Thus Grecian "democracy" was a highly exclusive form of government - direct rule by the chosen few desig­nated as "citizens," who congre­gated and made the laws. Thus democracy in the form which it originated is impossible except in a sma11 community where mass meetings can be held, or in a dictatorship where the ruling body makes the laws directly, as in the Soviet Union. Our Constitution of the United States clearly defines our govern­ment as a "Republic." It guaran­tees to the peoole of the several. States a "reoublican form of gov­ernment." Nowhere does it men­tion "democracy." James Madison, in the Federalist (Letter No. 10), states: "Hence it is that such de­mocracies have ever been spec­tacles of such turbulence and con­tention: have ever been found in­COJT'Inatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have, in peneral, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths. Theoretic politicians, who have patronized this species of government, have erroneously supposed that in reducing mankind to a oerfect equality in their politi­cal rip:hts, they would, at the same time, be perfectly equalized and assimilated in their possessions, their ooinions, and their passions." Thus Madison e"Xposed the dangers and weaknesses of democracy as loaded with the passions of class and race consciousness and agita­tion. Democracy, as Madison stated, has the characteristics of socialism and the philosophy of "equalization." Alexander Hamilton, Secretary of the Treasury under George Washington, made the statement: "We are a Republican Government. Real liberty is never found in des­potism or in the extremes of De­mocracy.'' In 1891 the United States Su­preme Court ruled : "The distin­guishing feature of a republican form (of government) is the right of the people to choose their own officers of governmental adminis­tration, and pass their own laws in virtue of the legislative power re­posed in representative bodies, whose legislative acts may be said to be those of the people them­selves; but while the people are thus the source of the political power, their governments, National and State, have been limited by written constitutions, and they have themselves thereby set bounds to their power, as against the sud­den impulses of mere maiorities." Thus the highest court of the land has couched in easily understand­able terms a definition of our RE­PUBLICAN form of government. Chief Justice John Marshall, an illustrious statesman. stated that: " ... between a b~lanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos." Samuel Adams warned: "Remem­ber, Democracy never lasts long. It soon w;:u;tps, exhausts and mur­ders itself! There never was a de­mocracy that did not commit sui­cide." George Bernard Shaw, the Brit­ish playwright, veteran socialist and pro-Soviet, said: "Used by per­sons with practical administrative experience, it (democracy) means government of the people, for the people, but most decidedly not BY the people." William Gallacher, Communist and Member of Parliament in Brit­ain, said: "The highest form of democracy is that found in the trade unions and cooperatives, and now expressing itself in the Soviet In the course of the past eight or ten years, many of us in the pundit business have fallen into errors of political hypothesis that now are happily subject to some revision and correction. An Index has come to hand, prepared by Americans for Constitutional Action, t.hat pro­vides for the first time a truly significant insight into the political philosophy of members of Cong­ress. One of the errors we had come to accept was an impression that "there really isn't much difference" between Democrats and Republi­cans. There is in fact a great dif­ference, capable of being objective­ly measured. Our thinking on this score will have to be sharply re­cast. We also had imagined that Sen­ators Kennedy, Humphrey and Symington were like Winken, Blinken and Nod, all identically at sea in the same Liberal boat; and we had supposed that Lyndon Johnson was, relatively speaking, considerably more ~<conservative" than the others. It isn't so. On the ACA Index, Kennedy scores 11, Johnson 10, Symington 4, and Humphrey 1. These compare with an index of 92 for Senator Byrd. On 38 key questions on which both Johnson and Byrd voted, they vot­ed a like fou r times only. This Index, published by-Human Events at 408 First Street, S.E., in Washington, is a remarkable labor in behalf of political understand­ing. The ACA editors began by studying 963 votes in the Senate between I 955 and 1959, and 280 votes in the House between 1957 and I 959. After prolonged study, thev reduced this mass of material to 77 Senate votes and 40 House votes that seemed to offer clear­cut questions of a "conservative" ooint of view as opposed to a 'liberal' ooint of view. Doubtless no two political ob­servers would agree that these 117 Senate and House votes are the exact 117 that should have been chosen for a studv of this sort. Reasonably minded men, regard­in~ themselve~ as conservatiyes, mrght well object to the "minus" charged against their spokesmen on a few issues. But in a study as large in scope as this one, such obiections cancel out. In broad outline, the ACA's dispassionate brush oaints a oicture too clear to be denied. And the Index is just It is now claimed that we have at Fort Knox only $19 billion dol­lars in gold but that foreign na­tions hold that same amount in short-term dollar assets which they could demand in gold. How many candidates for President will make this alarming situation an issue in the campaign? Union and the countries of planned socialist economy." Benjamin Franklin warned that we have a "Republic-if we can keen it." The brightness of the American dream has been tarnished by a ten­dency toward socialism and false security, by a gradual encroach­ment upon state and individual rights through federal government bureaucracies. A Republic places as valuable, of course, in rating Liberals as in rating Conservatives; the percentages need only to be turned upside down. One popular impression is abun­dantly supported by the ACA's study: The South is indeed a bul­wark of conservatism. Of the 15 ·most conservative Democrats in the Senate, 13 are from the South; the others are Lausche of Ohio, with a rating of 81, and Frear of Delaware, who scores 62. But Re­publicans, as a group are far more conservative than even the South­erners, as a group. The "most lib­eral" Republican is Cooper of Ken~ tucky, who nevertheless scpres 27 on the ACA Index; no fewer than 44 Democrats are more liberal than he. Substantially the same picture obtains in the House. If it were not for their unfortunate predilec­tion for accepting Federal hand­outs, Sou the r n Representatives would rank up top on the con­servative index. When it comes to questions of States' rights, in­dividual liberty, private property and sound money, Southern Demo­crats scarcely can be distinguished from typical staunch Republi­cans .... The ACA study helps to clarify the di lemma that faces Southe rn­ers in terms of the president ial election. Every one of the potential Democratic candidates appraised in this study is, on the record, a Liberal. Messrs. Kennedy, John­son, Humphrey and Symington have almost nothing in common wjth their Southern colleagues; they share a party label, that is all. If an opoortunity were presented for Southerners to vote their po­litical convictions (as these convic­tions are represented by their own congressmen), Southerners would support Barry Goldwater of Ari­zona (98) or John Williams of Del­aware (99) or Brid~es of New Hampshire (92). Trouble is, Gold­water. Williams and Bridges bear the label of "Republican." These gentlemen are, of course, "Conservatives," and if the Re­public ever comes to its political senses. we will choose up sides all over again so that the national political weight reflected in 30 Republican Senators and 15 Demo· cratic Senators, each with an ACA rating of 40 or better, could be put to more effective use. Grabbing and clutching at votes in the coming election, and with no regard for the effect of increas­ing inflation by their action, the United States Senate passed a bill on June 17 to raise the pay of 1,500,000 civil service employees by approximately $746.000,000.00 per year. The House had previous­ly passed the same measure. limitations and restraints on the federal government. If the people become indifferent and allow the administrators to usurp their rights under the Constitution, under the guise of "democracy," our Repub­lic, with the sovereign right vested In the people, will have been de­stroyed.

Take, for example, the snobbish pre­judices of the average American sandwich eater, especially the consumer of chicken sandwich­es. How is it that with a gross disregard of humanitarian senti­ment he almost invariably barges up to his lunch counter and de­mands his chicken sandwich, 'White meat on white bread, and cut the crust off, please!"? Be­sides voicin~ this aloud to pur­posefully offend the ears of those about him, he arrogantly displays a prejudice inculcated in him by years of ignorance and superstition, a prejudice based on emotion, not on fact! Has this type man never stop­ped to consider the virtues of the flesh from the drumstick and the second joint which he disgust­ingly refers to as "dark meat?" Does he not realize these por­tions of the bird's anatomy grew up with the fowl, fought and clawed with it side by side throughout the trials and perils of its stru~gle for survival? Such decisions based merely upon col­or must 'be eradicated from the American scene! Now, in accord with the stated purpose of government in all civilized communities, positive action must be taken. This pur­pose is best defined in the fol­lowing words: "Those things which the peo­ple cannot, or will not, do for themselves, must be done for them by government." If, therefore, the people will not take it upon themselves to Stalwart Colonists of Revolution­ary days risked all their worldly goods, even their lives, often losing both, to inaugurate the American heritage of human liberty and es­tablish a government of law under which men could enjoy freedom, God's most precious gift to man­kind. Every American has been be­queathed a share of this heritage, more to be cherished than all the gold in the world. America now is in grave danger; enemies at home and abroad plot destruction of our nation and our heritage. Alas, the great majority of citizens do not appreciate this gift or comprehend the nature or gravity of America's peril. Human liberty will vanish from the earth unless we can awak­en "The Spirit of '76," make it shine brightly in the minds and hearts of all Americans.-Christian Layman, Montgomery, Alabama.

In this election year we are blessed with the fact that all seriously considered candidates, both Re­publican and Democratic, under­stand this. What this writer is proposing are the steps neces­sary to alleviate one of our many prejudices and cause us to be­come a greater bulwark against Communism, and more worthy of taking our place in the com­munity of Nations. Legislation should be immediately enacted to compel all prejudiced individ­uals to I) re-evaluate their terms, and 2) to distribute their gastro­nomic demands more evenly, with a humanistic deference to the chicken's anatomy. In the broad outline, terms such as "white meat" and "dark meat," which are repugnant to so many, should be dropped from the sandwich eater's vocabulary, and in their place should be substi­tuted on all menus, and all ord­ers placed, "Light flesh" and "somewhat less light flesh." Corollary legislation should com­pel the sandwich eater who pre­fers. out of his freedom of choice "light flesh" to eat it on rye bread or a less light color if available, and to compel those who prefer "somewhat less light flesh" to devour their sandwich· es encased in the lightest bread on hand. Approoriate fines and jail sentences should be given the owners of those restaurants who fail to maintain a constant SlJOply of the necessary mater­ials to insure an even and just consumption. The consumer him­self should be subjected to due process of law ~hould he fail to comoly with either the prescrib­ed idiom or menu. It is envision­ed that the fulfillment of this program will be another step forward in America's parade of progress towards the achieve­ment of a greater and truer de­mocracy for us all. It is hoped that force will not be necessary to implement this required legislation. When the Communist-insoired mob in San Francisco rioted last month against the House On-Amer­ican Activities hearings they dis­tributed 10,000 copies of a smear against the Committee delivered by Jimmy Roosevelt according to information reaching us.

This was the insigne of the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun and the presentation was made in an elaborate cere­mony in General MacArthur's New York apartment. MacArthur was in command of military forces of the United States which brought about Ja­pan's surrender and after that was head of the occupation forces in that country until a little former Captain of the Infantry used the power he, incongruously, enjoyed to remove the nation's greatest mil­itary leader from that post. We do not know, of course, what the connection is between the re­pudiation of Eisenhower and the tribute to MacArthur but it is safe to assume that as long as General MacArthur remained in Japan Communism would not have been able to get a stranglehold on that nation and build uo such power that more than a million men could be assembled in a mob to prevent the visit of an American President to that country. Personally, we feel that if Mac­Arthur had been President for the past eight years his dignity, firm­ness and his unyielding policies would have won respect for the United States which it does not now enjoy. Former United States Senator Dies In His Minnesota Home Buried back among the 'want-ad pages of most newspapers there was recorded the death of a form­er United States Senator recently. He was the Honorable Henrik Shipstead of Minnesota. He served four terms in the Sen­ate, from 1922 until 1946 and dur­ing this time built up a record of distinguished service. Senator Shipstead was guilty of the unpardonable crime-accord­ing to current standards-of being more loyal to his own country than to foreign nations and ac­cordingly was denounced as an "isolationist" by such bird-brained colleagues as were dedicated to the Internationalist cause. He won immortality among pat­riotic Americans by being one of the two members of the Senate who had the courage and integrity to vote against the adoption of the United Nations Charter, the late Senator William Langer of North Dakota being the other. Spruille Braden, former Ambas­sador to Cuba gave information re· cently to a committee of Congress on Fidel Castro in which he told how the bearded beatnik of Cuba participated in riots in Colombia and other South American Repub .. lies as far back as 1948. The mobs were led by Commun­ists and practically destroyed the city of Bogota, capital of Colombia during the time of the Inter-Amer· ican Conference there, Braden said. At practically the same time as the former Ambassador's testi· mony, Carib Magazine published in the Dominican Republic carried an article by the Nobt>l prize-winning writing team of .Joe Martin and Phil Santora in which they traced Cas· tro's record clear back to the time when he was a drunken bum in the University of Havana which, like so many American colleges and un .. iversities was a hot-bed of Com­munist educators. Many of the leaders in the Young Communist League which had a cell at the University of Havana are now associated with Castro's regime in setting up a Communist State in Cuba, according to this article. And still Castro, in spite of his known Communist background, was invited to the United States and his Communist government recognized by this country without any noticeable objections being of­fered to the recognition of another beastly Communist dictator. By the action this country sanc­tioned the establishment of a Com­munist government just forty five minutes away from the United States and any American citizen in his right mind naturally won­ders if it was i~norance, indiffer­ence or deliberate design that this risk of our national security was taken by Washington leaders. If any nation ever needed a total and complete overhaul of its State Department, that nation is the United States. Good Government won a small victory in Congress recently when a "wheat bill" to cut acreage, raise price supports and influence votes was ..d efeated in the House. W. R. Poage, Congressman from Waco, Texas. who never farmed an acre of land until he got to Washing­ton and then blossomed out as an agricultural expert, was author of the bilL The Conference on Disarmament has been going on in Geneva twen• ty-two months and exactly noth .. ing has been accomplished and, from experience, of course we know that nothing will be accom­plished, but at least it is a good way to help pour American dollars down a rat-hole. No matter what his position on any other issue may have been while a member of the Senate, his judgment and far-sightedness Jn voting against approval of a Com­munist~ controlled one-world body should earn his memory the loyal gratitude and respect of all good Americans. Pago I TH! SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE 'Tax and Tax and Spend and In Event Bomb Strikes Bureaucrats Are Spend' Orgy Goes Merrily On To Be Saved first But We Can't Think Why The dishonesty of the nation's lawmakers and their total disre· gard for the interest of the tax­payers which has been demonstrat­ed repeatedly was given additional emphasis on June 20 when the Senate passed a bill keeping in ef­fect the 10 per cent Federal tax on telephone calls, telegrams and railroad tickets which was due to expire on July first. This action was taken on request of the President who asked that the taxes be retained even though he claims to favor economy in gov­ernment and makes convincing as­sertions to this effect. The 52 per cent corporation in­rome levy which was due to drop to 47 per cent on July 1 was ex­tended for a year which means it was extended forever, for politi­cians simply do not give up a dime of the money they extort from the taxpayers and a year from now they will repeat their sorry per­formance and extend the tax rates again. The measure also called for an $8,000,000,000.00 increase in the national debt ceiling which now makes the ceiling $293,000,000,- 000.00. For a long time, we have been referring to it as approximately a "$300,000,000,000.00 ceiling" and our prediction has practically come true. What this country desperately needs is a "tax revolution" like the one that was pulled in Boston when the tea was dumped in the harbor. Only this time, it is not tea that should be dumped. If you are going to be a Conser­vative, be one. If you are going to be a Liberal, be one; but for Heaven's sake, don't be a Mod­crate which is just another name for a political hermaphrodite. We believe that we recently set some kind of a record. We claim to be one of the few representa­tives of the press ever to be pre­sented with a complimentary tick­et to a fifty-dollar-per-plate politi­cal dinner and not use it. We gave ours away. Among the implements that have been used by tyrants to control their subjects have been the torch, the whip, the stake, the sword and the purse but the most powerful of these, and the one In use today, is the purse. When citizens sur­render the purse to their rulers, as Americans did with the passage of the Income Tax Amendment, they become vassals of the State. An article in the Houston Chronicle June 16 with a Washington dateline said that a $2,700,000.00 bombproof shelter is to be erected at Denton, Texas, and will get under way next February. There was nothing remarkable in that statement as many such structures are being erected around the country. But the Regional Director for the Office of Civil Defense and Mobilization for the area, one Mr. Welcome Wilson, practically dropped a bomb himself when he said at the dinner in Washington where the project was announced that the Denton shelter "would be able to take care of some 500 Federal officials from Dallas and Fort Worth" should disaster strike. They could, he asserted, "rush to Denton by way of an express highway without even stopping for a traffic light." As further evidence of the shelter's value in preserving the nation's most priceless possessions, the official explained that "it would also have facilities for Speaker Sam Rayburn whose home is only a short distance away." Now Director Wilson may be in possession of information and data which we don't have which would warrant him in the assumption that Federal officials, including Sam Rayburn, are not expendable and must be preserved at all costs but we venture the suggestio~} that there are at least several schools of thought in the matter. Any way, what would it profit the Federal officials to huddle safely in a bombproof shelter and let the common garden variety of citizens be mowed down by the bombs? There would be no taxpayers left to put up the money for them to fling around and in that case they would just as soon be dead any way. ~ Besides, Mr. Hal Draper, a Harris County, Texas, citizen has a better solution for the protection of frightened bureaucrats in the event of disaster. He suggests that in that case they all scurry back to Wash· ington and cluster around the Supreme Court building as no Soviet in his right mind would allow a bomb to be dropped on that friendly edi· fice. Meantime, after the shelter is completed, and if Mr. Khrushchev decides to drop one of his lethal calling carOs on the Denton area, plain vanilla Americans had better make themselves scarce and hop out of the way or they will get squashed into the concrete as 500 Federal offic· iats come hurtling down the highway at top speed. Slaves of Ancient Macedonia And Citizens Of he American epublic It looks like it won't be long now. Dr. Revilo P. Oliver~ noted conservative educator predicts that the United States will be taken over within four years at th(t rate things are going but we believe his estimate is wrong. Unless men with respect for Constitutional Government are placed at the helm in the coming election, the take-over may be sooner than that. We are influenced in this gloomy prediction by the action of the Federal government in denying inferentially that the sovereign States V:hich created the Federal government and limited its power, have any nghts whatever under the Socialist State which now prevails in this country. And when the rights of the indivldual States are completely abolished, a dictatorship remains and that dictatorship can deliver us into a Communist-controlled One-World Government when the pressure is applied. ' Involved is the case of the Federal government versus the State of Ohio filed recently. That State has always grown wheat on State­owned lands at mental institutions, hospitals and prison farms for the use of the inmates. But the Federal Government, under the Agricultural Adjustment Act, has sued Ohio for violating wheat quotas and asks judgment against the Buckeye State for $28,000.00. In other words, regardless of the needs of persons in mental insti4 tutions, hospitals and prisons, the State of Ohio should have cut its wheat production to conform to what lame-brained politicians in Wash· ington think they should have instead of what they actually needed to feed the wards of their State. Ohio State officials have attacked the suit as a "frightening and perverted use of the Agricultural Adjustment Act" and say they will appeal the case "all the way to the Supreme Court'' which is a sort of pathetic joke since we no longer have a Supreme Court in the judicial meaning of the term.

It evidence were needed that many members of Congress vote on a bill without ever having read it, the wage-hour measure approv ... ed by the House of Representatives June 30, provided it. So anxious were they to fix the minimum wage for workers at $L15 per hour that they passed the bill while overlooking an error In it which would remove some 14, ... 000,000 workers from the benefit• of the measure. Of course this was the last thing they wanted as the big idea is to bring in everybody, and restrict nobody, from the beneficient acts of a paternalistic government. It serves them right for of course Congress has no more mor ... al or Constitutional right to fix wages and hours of workers than it has to designate how many hours an American must spend in sleep or recreation. How many hours a citizen works and how much pay he re• ceives for it is strictly a matter between employer and employee and only a Socialist~dominated Congress would usurp the author• ity to step in and settle such prob· I ems. One of the greatest fallacies in history is the contention of dema .. gogues that taxation should be levied according to .. ability to pay." Nowhere in the American Constitution is there any justifica .. tion for this assumption. That tax .. ation shall be "equal and uniform'' is a verity that is basic in the char· ters of all free governments but the term (lability to pay" was con .. cocted by crooked politicians as a vote-catching device. Next Edition Will Be Out In September The Southern Conservative pub· lishes ten editions a year. Our July and August editions are thrown together and so are our November and December editions. Our decision to do this was origi· nally based on the fact that it saves money which is always short with us and also because Congress us ... ually adjourns In July and from then on until January there is not !l'luch devilment going on in Wash .. mgton and, therefore, not so much to write about. This year Congress will re-as .. semble around the middle of Au· gust so that Republicans and Dem• ocrats can make a last attempt to corr~l votes for their respective ~=~\~~ ~~g~~;ti~~II w~i~~tioe:'toZ money from the thrifty and frugal and re~istributes it to the lazy and shtftless. The bright idea of having Congress re-convene was hatched up by the Gold Dust Twins t~~0~e~~~n;n~am Rayburn and Congress will probably adjourn early in September and the worst damage that most of its members can do to the Republic from then until January is to get themselves re-elected. In our September edition we will review the two national con· ventions but, regardless of who is nominated by either party, It :::.~:. like it is going to be bad
