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
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
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

Although there was widespread
protest against such action, the
Senate of the United States followed
the House of Representatives
in voting to donate government

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.

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.

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.

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

for i,.,...urin.P. peace in a troubled world.

\"/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
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
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?
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
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."

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
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
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

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."

and underhanded attempt was
made in the Senate on May 26th to
deceive the people of the United
States and accomplish by subterfuge

opposed by all right·

do not have the evidence that this
But we do claim that a very
peculiar action took place in that
body on that date and that jurisdiction

affairs was almost voted into the
World Court, a proposal which the
Senate had to hastily abandon

of protest was visited on it by out·
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

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·

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
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

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
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

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
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.

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
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

Since this was in Massachusetts
and not in Mississippi, it will probably
not get much publicity but It
shows that human nature is the

but of decenr,y and the reaction
of the Massachusetts mob
to these black beasts ln human

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
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
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
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

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

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~

the current session of Congress.
Senator John J. Williams of DeJa~

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

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

of Washington statesmen will continue
to repose in top-secret files.

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

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

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

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

stated, has the characteristics of

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.

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"

One popular impression is abundantly

the others are Lausche of Ohio,
with a rating of 81, and Frear of

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

Communist Government Set Up Just
45 Minutes From United States
Extends Its Highest
Honor To MacArthur
Just a short tilne after the invitation
to President Eisenhowet
to visit Japan was cancelled by
the Japanese government, that
same government, through its Consul
General Mitsuo Tanaka, presented
to General Douglas MacArthur
the highest honor Japan
can bestow on a foreigner who is
not head of a State.
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
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
Former United States
Senator Dies In His

He was the Honorable Henrik

He served four terms in the Senate,

this time built up a record of
Senator Shipstead was guilty of

colleagues as were dedicated to the

Spruille Braden, former Ambassador
to Cuba gave information re·

on Fidel Castro in which he told

The mobs were led by Communists

city of Bogota, capital of Colombia

recognized by this country without
any noticeable objections being offered

beastly Communist dictator.
By the action this country sanctioned
the establishment of a Communist

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
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,-

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·
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.

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.
