Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 8 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, APRIL, 1957 No.4 If You're A Ciood· Conservative American Patriot··· Let's Face It··· You're Nuts A New Angle Is Added to U. S. Squandering Program When England, France and Is4 rae! barged into Egypt last Fall and started the brawl which re .. suited in the blowing up of the Suez Canal, Americans realized that somebody would have to pay for the damage but they didn't dream that this responsibility would fall on them. This country was~ot involved in any way in wrecking the Canal, none of our troops were present and just about all the officials ol this country knew about it appar­ently, was what they read in the papers. We are now informed, however, that officials of the White House and State Department have, with­out the "consent of the governed," agreed to put up $18,330,000 of the $26,500,000 which is being spent to rlear the Canal and to pay for the United Nations Emergency - Forces which were sent to the area. Other nations who are chipping in to pay for this foray by England, France and Israel are Canada, Australia, Western Germany, Swe~ den, Denmark, Italy and the Neth~ erlands. Belgium was asked to con­tribute but her officials had the courage and common sense to say "no". Britain, France and Israel Who caused the damage are not paying a dime. The above information was revealed in a United Press release from Washington on April 15. Maybe there are those who can see the logic and the justice in this proceeding but our feeble intellect fails to comprehend this latest act of "international diplomacy" on the part of "Modern Republican­ism. Brucker's Bangtail Junket Is Called Off Secretary of the Army Wilbur Brucker ran into a hornet's nest in Congress in connection with his plan to take a party of Congress­men to Kentucky to Hinspect Fort Knox" at the same time the Ken­tucky Derby was on. The opposi­tion was so vocal that the Secre­tary called the whole thing off. It is not clear whether Fort Knox will remain "uninspected" or a later date will be selected. There was no particular harm in the Congressmen seeing the Derby after their duties were over. In fact, it would be far less harm­ful than what many of them do every day, and certainly less ex-b:~~ i~~ t~;~~ t::tt:Y=~~:~~~i!~i~: money for tore1gn countnes. While they were betting on the ponies, they at least would be using their own money. But the fact that their colleagues objected to this jaunt is a whole­some thing and shows that the prod pole which voters have been applying to their representatives in Washington is having some effect. "While T would be the very last to say I do not t1·ust the judg­ment and discretion of the Presi­dent of the Untied States, I would like to declare that I trust more the collective judgment' and dis­cretion of the 96 members of the Senate and that of the 435 mem­bers of the House of Representa­tives."- The Honorable Herman Talmadge, Senator from Georgia. Texas Senator Proves Roosevelt Was A Piker in Squandering Tax Money We don't often shower Senator Lyndon Johnson of Texas with bouquets, not for any personal reason but bec;ause his philosophy of government is frequently opposed to that in which we believe. but he is definitely due a posy for recently putting a crimp in "Modern Re­publicanism" by dealing it a sharp, swift blow in the solar plexus. The able and eloquent Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona was making a very forceful and effective attack on Eisenhower's all-time high budget in peacetime but, unhappily ior him, he added this crack: " ... I have warned on repeated occasions that we must call a halt to the incessant demands upon the Federal Government ior financial assistance merely because, during the era of the New Deal, the American people and the people ol the world learned the awful truth that Uncle Sam is a sucker". At this point the tall senator from Texas was on his feet and when his colleague had yielded, he started quoting figures from the record among which were the following: "The entire expenditures for this government, for the highest peacetime year, under President Roosevelt, amounted to $9 billion. with 900,000 persons employed in the Federal Government ... The estimated figure for the coming fiscal year, under President Eis,;nhower, is $71.8 billion with 2.400.000 Federal em­ployees ... Touche! Because the American people have been so thoroughly brainwashed by the experts in their respective fields, they have developed a sort of sheep-like quality which impels them to follow the leader even if they plunge over a cliff and break their fool necks and crack every bone in their cal'caas. Hitler said a mouthful when he reminded his henchmen that if you keep repeating something over and over, people will finally come to believe it. In recent years a shower of "Mental Health in Relation to World Citizenship" propaganda has drenched us in such torrential proportions that millions of otherwise normal persons are convinced that any courageous citizen who dares to stand up in defense of American Constitutional Government and time-tested social customs and who refuses to let international political psychiatrists shape his economic and social thinking-is crazy and confused and should be locked up in the booby hatch. Having become conditioned to mass thinking and group action in a new system of society where original thought and individual con­viction is looked upon as little short of high treason, an appalling segment ol the American peopl-Plunge out of one social or economic fad into another. When a crackpot social or economic theory is expounded to them verbally and in print, over and over again, they finally come, like Hitler's minions, to accept it as sound and fundamental doctrine. They knock themselves out in crusades and causes mapped out for them by international specialists who make a career of planning human lives and directing human thought and who are out to set the world to rights and to correct all the mistakes of man and God. For over a dozen years now, they have been on a terrific racial in­tegration binge. During this wild orgy of reform and ruin, they have irreparably damaged the Constitution, hopelessly wrecked friendly ra­cial relations that were almost a century in the making aQd have seri­ously offended the decent instincts of white and colored alike. Now they feel that ~<Operation Mongrelization" is pretty well under control and they are about ready to march again. It's Spring; the sap is rising and they are "rarin" to go. This time, they are off on a "Mental Health" spree and Lord help any ignorant peasant who dares to dispute the international head shrinkers' claim that practically evr.r:v other American citizen is a lunatic and needs psychiatric treatment. It used to be the best thought in World Planning circles that the quickest and most effective way to completely change the political. economic and social thinking of the American people was to haul off and start a war and this method has proved successful in the past. However, it's getting more difficult now to generate one since many "reactionaries" are on to the racket and strenuously object to the killing of millions of young American boys in order to sway adult opinion and, any way, since we are putting up the money to finance the potential wars of more than forty foreign nations, we probably couldn't afford to fight one of our own. So the big Foundations had to hatch up another idea and never let it be said that these bright boys in the Foundations can't come up with some honeys. So it was decided thai political psychiatrists and "electronic engineers" must do the job and make World Citizens of recalcitrant Americans by the simple expedient of adjusting their thought processes to make them amenable to the idea or one language, one religion and one mongrelized race in a One-World Government. To accomplish this vast project in mental engineering, it has been necessary for the big Foundations to subsidize most of the brain-tinker­ers who were lying around loose over the world: Since the stark recitation of these facts might indicate that the writer is in serious need of mental adjustment, we will quote from the record of some of the top dogs in the brain-alteration business who boldly proclaim to the world their new program for diverting human thought into what they consider the proper channels. (Continued on Page 2) (Crr M ill ion 5 o f A m e r i ca n s T h in k I t-T h e S out h e r n ( o n 5 e r v a t i v e S a y s I t Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE April, 1957 If You Are (Continued from Page 1) First, we want to emphasize the vast difference between ethical psychiatrists in the medical profession who are dedicated to the study and cure of actual mental illness and whose ministrations to the men­tally diseased are vital to human happiness and well-being, as com­pared to the political psychiatrists who are prostituting their noble profession by alignment with the worldwide conspiracy which seeks to destroy not only the sovereignty of the United States but all things in which civilized Christian humanity believes. The professional behavior of these international political psychi­atrists who are lending their talents to low and ignoble political ends; is unethical, unprofessional and dishonorable. It is opposed to every lofty aim and principle commonly ascribed to those who enter any sec~ tor of the medical profession and who subscribe to the Hippocratic Oath that embodies only a code of medical ethics and makes no provision for extraneous subversive activities. One of the foremost figures in the promotion of the international campaign to influence human thought toward One~ World Government is Dr. Brock Chisholm of Canada who says frankly in his lecture series 11The Re~Establishment of Peacetime Society11 : "With the other human sciences, psychiatry must now decide what is to be the immediate future of the human race. No one else can. And this is the prime responsibility of psychiatry". Having established that the uprime responsibility" of psychiatry is not the treatment and cure of the mentally ill but to direct the 41future of the human race", Chisholm designated some "personality disturbances" which the political psychiatrists of the world must look into and correct. The great trouble with the world in this Canadian psychopath's opinion is that heretofore "parents have had a perfect right to impose any points of view, any lies, fears, superstitions, prejudices, hates or faiths on their defenseless children" which he says have caused 11neu­roses, behavior disorders, emotional disabilities and failure to develop a state of emotional maturity which fits one to be a citizen of a de~ mocracy able to take one's part in making a world fit to live in". Morality in its age~old sense is a dirty word in the lexicon of the political psychiatrists and Chisholm warns that ufr¥dom from mo­ralities means freedom to observe, to think and behave sensibly to the advantage of the person and the group, free from outmoded types of loyalties and from the magic fears of our ancestors". He adds: 11If the race is to ~e f:eed from its crippling burden of good and evil, it must be psych1atnsts who take the original responsibility .•. It is therefore necessary that, for so long as Jt may take to change the bringing up of children in enough of the world, our close watch on each other and every one in the world should not be relaxed for a moment". So how do we like that prospect? Keeping watch on every one without relaxing for a moment is one of the r esponsibilities of the brain­washers in Moscow. When the International Congress on Mental Health met in London ~uly 24 to August 8, 1948, to discuss ''psychiatric problems'' the ass':mphon w~uld naturally be that experts in the profession from vanous countnes of the world would pool their knowledge and dis- "IF" (With apologies to Kipling) If you can keep your head when all about you UNESCO seeks to muddle and deceive; (If you can trust yourself when 11pinkies" doubt you Because you love your Country and believe Its Constitution is the best that ever Was drawn to guard the liberties of man, And that Americans must all endeavor To keep it safe and solid if they can •••• If you won't let the UN be your master, If you won't make world government your aim; If you can fight the sinister disaster Of letting spies and traitors win the game­If you are loyal to the land that gave you Your freedom and the chance to fight and win, And count upon its Bill of Rights to save you From tyranny and slavery and sin . .•.

Instead, a 48-page booklet issued by the Congress titled "Mental Health and World Citizenship" giving a report of the London proceed• ings, fails to mention one single address, diseussion or paper devoted to subjects relating to the ethical practice of psychiatry. As delegates arrived from.. 27 countries of the world, each was asked to write a statement on "What is Mental Health?", "What Con .. stitutes a Good Society?" and "What is World Citizenship?" Whereupon they all fell to and for two long weeks they struggled with the framework of a new social structure in which all citizens of the world might abide free of "racial prejudice"; released from 11un .. healthy family relationships"; unrestricted by "pre-conceived notions of morality"; unhampered by 11narrow nationalism"; released from "unwholesome parental influence" and 11free from outmoded ideas of loyalty to Country or Flag"; in short, where all conventional human thinking will be reversed arfti headed in an opposite direction and all mortal minds blended into universal accord. The full import of that World Conference for Mental Health­which of course had nothing whatever to do with mental health-is now being felt in full fore~ in this country and the propaganda initia ted at that time is seeping down into the grass roots and finding lodgment in frail minds who are suckers for anything new and untried.

They will urge upon lawmakers the passage of any "mental health" bill p1,1t in their little hot hands without any more knowledge of its origin and objectives than a bull moose has of nuclear fission . For the next few years, we may look for "Mental Health" propa .. ganda to equal or maybe exceed that which has attended the Mon .. grelization program which caused good women o! the church to go ginning and spinning all over the lot in their pathetic blind frenzy to carry out instructions which they didn't quite uderstand or approve but which they didn't dare disobey. Somebody might think they didn't have the proper "Christian attitude" or didn't understand the full meaning of "Brotherhood". Both "Mental Health" and mongreliza .. tion propaganda are part and parcel of the international levelling-off process in preparation for a One-World Government. While holding in respect which borders on reverence the ethical psychiatrists whose qod~given talents help to brighten the dark path of the mentally ill and guide them back to reason and light, we shall always maintain a wholesome contempt for political psychiatrists who seek to bring about a unified humanity in a One-World Government through the practice of their profession. • Personally, we prefer to hold on to any bats that may be running loose in our belfry if this means freedom to think and to act and to sound off about any corrupt principle of government or odious social practice which we abhor, rather than to reach out for the bright and shining mental apparatus offered by political psychiatrists who demand, in payment, that we must surrender our convictions, conform to a uniform pattern of behavior and sit back and smile as our inalienable rights and freedoms are gently clipped away. As far as we are concerned, they can go wash their own brains, take their own tranquilizer pills, and shrink their own heads. Female Communist From MoS(ow Appointed Head of UNESCO Group To keep the Infamous UNESCO literature out of the public schools of this country requires eternal vigilance on the part of parents and school boards and, even so, there are schools all over the nation who do use in some form this poisonous propaganda in their curriculum. Scores of phony "educators" have defended this anti~American and subversive propaganda dished out by UNESCO for the benefit of adolescent American students and have heatedly denied its Com­munistic affiliations. On the floor of Congress on March 20, Congressman H. R. Gross of Iowa tossed a small bomb into the midst of UNESCO defenders in the House when he read from one of UNESCO's own bulletins a list of new staff appointments which said: Mrs. A. Jegalova (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) who was formerly Chief of the Inspection Division in the Soviet Ministry of Education and more recently Chief of the Division of International Literature in the Publishing House of Foreign Literature, Moscow, has been appointed Chi~ of the Secondary Education Division (of UNESCO)." "In considering the implications of a Communist occupying such an important position" Congressman Gross continued "bear in mind that UNESCO is the organization which has referred in its 'educa­tional' publications to children 'breathing the poisoned air of national .. ism' and has called for children to be educated 'to prepare themselves for citizenship in a world society' ". Mr. Gross read from another UNESCO publication, the UNESCO Chronicle of December, 1956, this interesting tidbit of information concerning that outfit which is largely financed by American tax­payers: "UNESCO gave financial and technical assistance to the Yugo­slav (Communist) National Commission for the organization of an international seminar on the economic education of workers". Among the countries represented at this seminar was Red China, Mr. Gross added. Now that this organization has come out in its true colors any educator who uses their literature and any school board which permits it, will do so with their eyes open and with full knowledge that it is Communist dominated, (a fact that informed persons have always known) and that the Chief of one of its "education" divisions is a Mos· cow Communist. Ap61, 1957 Attack on U. S. Security Relentless and Eternal When Chauncey Depew, Am"eri­can statesman, unveiled the Statue of Liberty, he delivered a warning which, had it been heeded, would have made us more alert to dang­er and perhaps prevented this great Republic from becoming a mere Socialist arm of the One­World government of the United Nations which it is today. Depew said: "The rays from this beacon, lighting this gateway to the conti­nent, will welcome the poor and the persecuted with the hope and f[o:i;1e t~~c~on;~:~n~~~ti~~~:~if~ room and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but that those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever." How horribly tragic and pro­phetic were this great man's words. Among the hordes of foreigners who have swarmed here, many have "disturbed our peace" and "dethroned our laws" but have not been treated as "aliens and enemies forever" . Instead, they have been looked up to as great international lead .. ers who were merely assisting in nullifying our Constitution and destroying our sovereignty in the interest of universal peace, and who have not only not accepted our institutions and way of life as their own, but have conver ted our leaders to their low and ignoble ideologies. The McCarran-Walter Immigra­tion law was planned with the view of permitting only the most desirable of aliens to come into this country, those who could be assimiliated and who would accept this country as their home in the best meaning of the term. International Communists in this country, and outside, are eternally vigilant in their attempts to break down the McCarran­Walter Act in order to permit sub­versive aliens to flock to our shores. The American Republic is not completely destroyed yet and they want to admit those who will fin­Ish the job. Any weakening of the safe-fa~ r~; t~! c~:g~!:~~~~f~~~~~f~~~ treasonable activity against the safety and internal security of the United States. During the fiscal year of 1956, the people of Texas paid in Fed­eral taxes $2,406,858,000.00 which was ·sent to the Department of Internal Revenue in Washington.' During this period they received back in 11Federal aid" $290,936,- 763, or 12.09 per cent of what they had put in the Federal kitty. And stili there are those who are ignorant and stupid enough to actually believe that there is such a thing as uFederal Aid" to education and that when the rob­ber barom in the Internal Revenue Department send us back a small fraction of money confiscated from us in the first place, they are doing us a great favor. How silly can human beings get? The indiscriminate use of tran­quilizing drugs and pills is deeply deplored by Dr. T. R. Van Dellen, medical columnist in the Chicago Tribune. There is no substitute for natural relaxation in his opinion and he hopes that drug substitutes will be used only in exceptional cases. Relaxation is nature's built­in tranquilizer, this eminent phy­sician declares. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE In the Interest of Self-Preservation Surely This Treaty Will Be Rejected Legislation, executive proposals, treaties and secret agreements which are detrimental to the in­terests of the United States are constantly bobbing up in Washing­ton but what we believe is the most dangerous measure ever pro­posed for enactment by any law­making body in the historr of the world is the suggested treaty which the U. S. Senate is asked to ratify whereby an International Atomic Agency will be established. It was Dr. J. Robert Oppen­heimer, former head of the Atomic Energy Commission at Los Alamos and who was later removed from that position because of security risk and because of his constant association with Communists, who first suggested that we share our atomic secrets with the rest of the world. Such Americans as are not shock-proof were amazed and in­furiated at this proposal for plac .. ing this frightening weapon in the hands of those who might use it to blast us off the face of the earth. But meantime the soft-soap has been used freely and propaganda has flowed copiously in all chan­nels of communication until a large segment of the people have come to think it's not such a bad idea after all. So now the United States Senate is being asked to ratify a treaty whereby an Internat ion al Atomic Agency will be set up and, on the same Marxian basis that we have shared the wealth of the United States with the hobos, the bums and the hoodlums of the world, we now propose to share with them a dangerous and lethal weapon that can blow us into so many pieces we would have to be picked up with a blotter. Under this treaty, we will have one vote out of the 70 or 80 mem­bers of this International Atomic Agency and all members of the United Nations will automatically become members. Nonmembers of the United Nations may become members by a majority vote and there is to be no veto. The President has approved this treaty and has promised that this country will furnish a certain quantity of uranium 235 which, according to scientists, can be en­riched and pepped up to the point where it will provide the makings of 2,200 atomic bombs. The American people are final­ly, and at long last, up to the boil­ing pOint over the unconscionable squandering of their tax .money and, before their wrath cools, they had better let their two senators know just what they think about this latest, and perhaps fatal , booby trap into which we are about to fall. Only the Senate can vote on ratification of treaties and the mat­ter will not come before the House of representatives u ntil it is time to fork over the funds t o put this international infernal mach ine in­to operation. So concentrate on the Senate. Three Americans Murdered in Iraan Should Never Have Been Sent There The murder of Kevin M. Carroll, his wife and Brewster Wilson, American citizens, who were shot down in cold blood by bandits last month in a remote Iranian com­munity carried more tragic impli .. cations than ordinarily attends the loss of three human lives. It was all so unnecessary. The first tragedy is that Amer­icans should be sent to such out­landish places to attempt the ridic­ulous task of trying to 41Spread knowledge, education and culture" in an area of the world that is so wild that even camels cannot pene­trate the denseness of the jungles where these Americans were shot down, and where political pirates in the American Congress had al­ready squandered $1,593,647 which they had first pilfered from Amer­ican taxpayers. The inane objec­tive of this colossal expenditure was to "raise the literacy level" of obscure mountain tribes who don1t even know what 41literacy" is and care less. Their principal oc­cupation is fighting and killing each other and any hapless strang­er who wanders into the domain of these gun-happy barbarians does so at his own risk. Dr. Nicholas A. Bercel, Beverly Hills psychiatTist, in an interview in the Los Angeles Examiner, list­ed as a great advancement the new method of inducing mental illness in a normal person by the injec­tion of lysergic acid diethylamide for the purpose of studying the results. It represents the first time, he said. that human beings can be The second tragedy is that the incident points up the attitude of all foreigners toward us. Like the gangsters who shot these three Americans i.n the back, they have co·me to feel - and rightly so - that they can murder citizens of this country and that nothing at all will be done about it outside of a few insipid and futile notes from the State Department. It is heart-breaking to consider what dopes and fools the American people have shown themselves to be in repeatedly electing national leaders of such limited stature that American prestige has plummeted to the depths. No nation either re­spects or fears us since they have learned that they can not only get away with murder of American citizens without fear of punish­ment or reprisal, but that they can th~n turn right around and fleece us out of our last dime. There may still be time for the American people to come to their senses and take back the govern­ment in 1960 but it is going to re­quire the same measure of unity, courage and determination which enabled our forefathers to wrest this glorious land from foreign ty­rants in the long ago. used for experimental purposes in mental illness. So, psychiatrists would seem to have a very power­ful weapon in their Hthought­changing" program. If you are not mentally ill, it is possible to make you so. Such discoveries as this are Satanic and of no good to the human race, in our humble opin­ion. Page 3 The 'Voice of Amerka' Is State Department Hogwash The House Appropriations Com­mittee of Congress cut more than $37,000,000 from the appropria­tions to USIA which operates the Voice of America, but if they had done their plain duty, they would have cut the entire appropriation for this useless, unnecessary and detrimental agency which is doing the United States no good what­ever in its blatant misrepresenta­tions to the outside world of what it calls "American Democracy", Time and again it has been ex­posed as a boondoggling project of the worst order, something along the line of Roosevelt's leaf­raking venture, that set a new low in extraneous activities which the New Deal president initiated and which have now increased to an alarming degree. If we are going to have such extrinsic agencies as USIA whose supposed objective is to 11Promote Americanism and fight Commu­nism" ~hy not keep them here i!l, the Umted States to do this job where the need is greater and the expense is less. Instead of shooting them across the ocean to plead with the Slov­enian~ 1 for instance, to reject in­doctrmation by the Communists, why not turn them loose in our churches, univer sities and govern .. ment agencies here at home to do a little missionary work in those far more strategic areas where the results, if any, might rebound to the benefit of the people of tho United States? The poor, tax-ridden suckers of this country have about as much valid need for the United States Inf?rmation Agency and for the Vo1ce of America as an Eskimo has for a swallow-tail coat. Any way, it's not the "Voice of America". It's the Voice of the Reds in. the State Department, and one of lts few accomplishments to date is to convince the people of the areas where it operates that the only music Americans care for or know anything about is rock 'n roll played by Negro jazz bands. The $27.00 wast• baskft'ts in the State Department have created 7r!'uch interest since this informa­twn has been given over the air by Mr. Fulton Lewis, Jr. and it seems that the Department has decided to economize since the matter became public knowledge and has now compromised for $10.00 waste baskets. We publish­ed the information about the $27.00 baskets almost a year ago. The Tariff Commission of the United States is an agency which was officially set up by the Con­gress to assist in the regulation of foreign trade, including tariff adjustments. It consists of six members who are appointed by the President. However, this pow­er to regulate American foreign trade, through crooked shenani­gans at which Washington politi­cal racke"!eers are expert, is now lodged in a bunch of eggheads in Geneva who make all decisions in regard to American foreign trade while members of the Tar­iff Commission are helpless and must sit and twiddle their thumbs. What, in the name of all that is holy, ~s the matter with the A mer~ ican people and when will they wake up and go into action?

THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: The powert not dele~ated to the United Stetu by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the Statu are reu1rved to the Stetearaspecfitely.ortothepeople. Texas Gets A New United States Senator-~nd How! '!'he Southern Conservative, as our readers know. never endorses any candidate for any office but we always like to take a post­mortem glance at the performance of the electora te after a binge at the polls where, in the past two decades, human ineptitude and stu­pidity seem always to be attaining new peaks. Texans have just gone through the rigors of a hectic special elec­tion in which twenty-one candi­dates gallantly offered to make a great sacrifice and go to Washing· ton to render brilliant service dur­ing the balance of the term of Price Daniel who resigned to make a successful race for Governor of the State. Two or three of the candidates actually had some faint hope of winning and entered the contest with the serious intention of con­ducting an intensive campaign. The rest merely got in - or were put in- to divert votes from some other contestant or to see how their names looked in public print. The result- to put it somewhat less than mildly- was startling. Not that Texas has distinguished itself in recent years by sending mental giants to represent us in the Upper House of the Congress of the United States but this latest deal was surprising- probably to the candidate himself, who .has spent a large portion of his adult life running for office and having no luck. On the morning after the elec­tion, there were many who felt perhaps that such early-day cham· pions of States Rights and Consti­tutional Government as John H. Reagan, Charlie Culberson and Joseph Weldon Bailey must be weeping in their celestial beards over the potential fate of those revered principles when commit­ted to the custody of Texas' cur~ rent spokesmen in the nation's legislative chamber of last resort. Because of the twenty-one way split, the winning candidate, one Ralph Yarborough, was able to gal­lop under the wire with only 37 per cent of the votes which would TH E SOU.THERN CONSERVATIVE The Chinese Communists 'Are in God's Hands for Good' Says Episcopal Bishop The Overseas Mission Society, Inc., with headquarters in Washing­ton,. D.C., describes itself in its literature as 11A society for the promo­tion of the Overseas Mission of the Episcopal Church" . It publishes the Overseas Mission Review of which William A. Klebsch at 606 Rathervue Place, Austin, Texas, is the editor. The Rt. Rev. Ronald 0. Hall is the Anglican Bishop of Hongk.ong and he writes a column in this Overseas Mission Review which gtves lay Episcopalians a sort of report of his work and impressions as a mi ssionary in China. In Vol. 11 , No. 11 of the Review, on page 23 , appears a column by the good Bishop which would tend to indicate that we grossly under­stated the situation in the March Southern Conservaive when we tried to point out how many churches have become infiltrated with the Soviet philosophy and how some ministers have discarded the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the Social Gospel of the Soviets. Rev. Hall pulls out all the stops and really goes to town in his praise of the type of uchristianity" as practiced by the Chinese Com­munists. His column is titled "In God's Hands for Good" and he says in part: "We are intensely grateful to the Communist Party for what it. has done to give our country, at last, a strong and good· government. We are amazed at their success in the moral reform of our people and ashamed that, by comparison, what the Christian Church has done appears to be so little ..• uNow these children of the mission are cOnvinced that they can do more and greater things for their country by a close integration with their fellow countrymen in their new way of life, rather than by retaining international contacts on the old pattern •. . China was so hopelessly broken and discouraged economically, mora1ly and politically, it needed new men with new courage and a new technique to restore the damage . . . The new men with the new technique have a story like the story of Moses and Joshua ...

They DO want you to know that for the first time for several centuries, China has a government of which China's Christian people thank God . . • "I know that when they say this they are not brainwashed puppets repeating what their masters tell them but HONEST AND DEVOTED CHRISTIAN MEN AND WOMEN TRYING TO INTERPRET AND UNDERSTAND THEIR OWN EXPERIENCE. uLet us with God's help, adjust our thick skulls and eager hearts to the fact that the Chinese Church has come of age.

In this picture he railed out against all Dictators except one and that was Stalin whom he ad­mired and in whose policies he was a staunch believer. Recently we were reminded of this picture when the Circle The­atre put on a performance on tele­vision called: uSlow Assassina­tion". It was the story of Dictator Peron's despotism and especially in connection with his suppres­sion of the press and freedom of j~=;c~u~n~fwceu~~~i\~ :i~ht~ ~r~7~ the script. Throughout the picture as Per .. on's terroristic methods were por­trayed, a narrator denounced Fas­cism and Nazism as practiced by the scoundrel Peron. This was fine but what was re­markable was that not one word was said about Stalin and Com­munism. Every few minutes ·the narrator dug up Hitler and Mus­solini and pommelled them all over the place, but never a word against Stalin or his successors. So far as that picture was concerned, a murderer named Stalin never lived and the murder of millions of Christians in Russia never took place. It's hard for any one to paint a picture of the world's worst Dictators and leave Stalin out, but it seems it can be done, if you work at it.

Smith, Congressman from Wiscon­sin, who inch.1ded in the appendix of the Congressional Record on Febru­ary 22, page A-1410, an address by Major General Charles A. Willough­by, the American people are given an understanding of Soviet espionage that is probably not available from any other source. General Willo-ughby was MacAr­thur's Chief of Intelligence for eleven years and in this capacity acquired first-hand information o( the disgrace­ful events and conspiracies against this country transpiring before, dur­ing and after World War II. Only brief highlights of the ad­dress can be eiven here for lack of apace but the reading of the entire address Jn the Record will provide valuable information to those who at­tempt to trace the black record of treason against this country by both foreign and domestic enemies in times ot peace and of national crises. General Willoughby's intelligence found international Communists in­cluding Americans, operating from Shanghai to San Francisco, during the war, in a recognizable global pattern. Under the Potsdam conference, MacArthur was compelled to open up the Japanese jails at war's end to . liberate "political prisoners" which included a Russian espionage ring, headed by Richard Sorge. One of Sorge's collaborators was Prince Sa. ionji, a high-born Japanese who was during the war, and is still, associ­ated with the Institute of Pacific Re­lations Since a Japanese-American war would benefit Rm:sia by releasing So­viet forces for the European theater, the American Institute ot Pacific R~­lations' conspiracy was directed to­ward bringing on this war. As early as October 1941, two months before Pearl Harbor, master.spy Sorge re­layed to Moscow the information that this attack would be made although American forces at Pearl Harbor had no such warning in order to prepare for the invasion. One of the principal traitor& In the betrayal of China to the Commun~ ista Is pictured in the person of Agne• Smedley who was part of Sorge's spy ring, as well as a protege of Harold Ickes, Secretary of the Interior under Roosevelt. A milllon·Word report with com­plete documentation was furnished to Washington concerning the opera­tions of the spy~ring of which Smed­ley was a part but was suppressed. When the un·American Actlvitie• Committee tried to subpoena her for questioning, she skipped to England where she died mysteriously. She left her estate to General Chu~Teh, the Chinese Communist Commander, and her will ordered th~t her body be cremated and her ashes laid to rest at any place the Chinese Communist .Should direct. The ashes of Smedley were flown to China and placed in a magnificent marble shrine "at a time when United States troops were piling up their dead on the dismal battle~ fields of North Korea", General Wil­loughby pointed out. Smedley was en­dowed by a large American Founda­tion the name of which was not given in the General's speech. The General touches on scores of other events which, together, weave a pattern of betrayal of American interests that is unbelievable e·~cept that they are now a part of recorded history.

There is no one step that could be taken that would cure all the ails that plague this country at this time, but there is one thing that could be done that would go further than anything else toward achieving this result and that would be repeal of the Sixteenth amendment, the most vicious pro­vision ever inflicted on any na­tion.

Page 5 - Diplomacy by Trickery (Indianapolis Star) President Eisenhower is seeking by trickery to circumvent the Con­stitution of the United States and the laws made by the United States Congress. No other conclusion is possible from the announcement of the agreement made at the Ber~ muda· conference. The President has unilaterally, and without the advice or consent of the Senate, announced that he intends to join the military alii· ance of the Bagdad Pact. He has no constitutional right to do so. This is a treaty to which he has no power to bind the people of the United States without the approval of the United States Senate. For if this country joins the military b:~~~~ t~~~f;~;~;~0au~~~~~catl~~ Middle Eastern interests of Britain, Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Pakistan. Yet no alliance can, under the Con· stitution, be binding on this coun­try without senatorial approval Mr. Eisenhower says that he Js acting under the "Middle East Joint Resolution." That is not so. - He did not ask Congress for author. ity to join the Bagdad Pact when he proposed his Middle Eastern policy. He did not inform Congress that he intended to make a mili· tary alliance with some of the na· tions in this area and not with others. Yet now he has simply tak-en matters into his own hands ln an attemp\ to avoi.d having to ask approval by the Senate which is his constitutional duty. Would the Senate approve American entry into the Bagdad Pact if asked? We do not believe it would. But whether it would or not, the Senate has not even been asked. This 1s the very sort ot 11back door" diplomacy that Re· publicans have been bitterly criti­cizing Democratic Presidents for doing at Yalta and in Korea. The President himself has repeatedly stated that he will never seek to circumvent his responsibilities to Congress in foreign affairs-par­icularly when he was opposing the Bricker Amendment which would prevent such evasion. Now he him­self has proved the necessity for limiting still further the power of the President to make treaties sin­glehandedly and without respon­sibility to either Congress or the people. This agreement to enter the military alliance with Bagdad Pact nations is an example of pres­idential duplicity that needs to be repudiated by Congress. If the President wants to put the United States into this Middle Eastern military alliance let him do it le­gally. Let him come before Con­gress and ask for approval in the proper manner instead of trying to sneak it in through the back door. We did not think the President would stoop to this sort of obvious trickery. Because he has done so, we suggest that Congress by reso­lution repudiate this illegal alli­ance. At the same time we suggest that Congress also ask the Presi­dent to explain why he has agreed to give guided missiles - with atomic warheads located nearby . to be supplied in case of war -ln violation of the law passed by Con­gress prohibiting him from shar­ing atomic missiles with anyo~ "I shall know but one country.

A case in point is that occurring in Louisville, Ky., about three years ago where a Negro residence was bombed as a result of a communist conspiracy to stir up racial strife, where the FBI aided the Kentucky courts to convict and im­prison the perpetrators. That trick was old when Pislstratus used It to become tyrant of Athens 2500 years ago. The so-called "victim" was then and most often now is the perpetrator shrouded In a cloak of sanctrty, oper­ating in accordance with a plan de­vi~ ed by co-conspirators. Since Marx, wolves no longer come in sheeps clothing-they come in robes. Is it a mere accident that the bombs recently exploded should have affected only churches and Negro preachers and should have been timed eo as to hurt no one, yet timed so as to coincide with the meeting of the Congress to consider proposals to con1er unconstitutional, despotic and repress! ve powers on a group of do­gooders to be named by the President? Is it mere accident that the bombs should explode at a time when pro- ... posals are before the Congress to de­stroy the means of preserving and to hagten the destruction of Anglo­Saxon liberty and the race that pro­duced lt? Is it a mere accideni that the ob­jects selected for bombing In each instance were such as were calculat­ed to excite and lnllame the emotions of unthinking people who are being led thereby to associate communist causes with God and associate those who oppose Jnt~gration and commu­nism with the Godless? Is it a mere accident that bombs were timed to explode at the very time when the Congress is being importuned to continue its expendi­ture o! billions of dollars for the specious purpose of containing com­munism abroad when nothing is re­quested or used to contain or arrest the march of communism at home? ~ Is it a mere accident that those in your Administration who have most effectively lifted their voices against communism have been so com­pletely smeared and destroyed that none now dares to expose that which he knows? If McCarthy was destroyed for his "methods", who pursues his objectives by better methods? We respectfully request that the President no longer stand idly by while incendiaries, educated in com­munist cells, and financed by Mos- Many World War II pictures are being revived on television pro­grams having to do with Nazism and Fascism, two atrocious ideo­logies which were rampant during that period of history. But the defeat of Germany and Italy practically rooted out both Nazism and Fascism which were largely local evils that were born and quickly extinguished in those two countries respectively. With the death of Hitler and Mussolini, the totalitarian policies of govern~ ment which they championed vir­tually came to an end. There was never any planned World Nazism or World Fascism posing a horrible threat to the sov .. ereignty of nations and to the in­dividual freedom and personal dig­nity of the entire human race. Nazism and Fascism were merely the distorted delusions of a de­mented Austrian house painter and a pompous Corsican demagogue. With the disappearance of Na~ zism and Fascism, however, an even more evil and vicious menace came to take their place in the form of World Communism - a greater threat to the security of the American Republic than all the combined enemies we have ever been called on to combat. There are no television programs exposing Communism with the ex­cepion of that depicting the life of Herbert Philbrick, an FBI agent posing as a Communist.

CARTER Pl'ITMAN, Dalton, Ga. The question naturally arises as to why those who arrange tele .. vision programs would reach back into the past and revive horror stor­ies on Nazism and Fascism while totally disregarding the wealth of material available to them con~ cerning Communism which is the deadliest peril this nation has ever been called on to face and whose tentacles are gradually reaching out into every phase of human ac .. tivity in the United States. And during World War II, and long after, every motion picture house in this country very proper­ly flashed denunciations of Nazism and Fascism on the screen day in and day out which helped to warn the American people against these two satanic philosophies of govern­ment but have had nothing what­ever to say against the far greater menace of World Communism which is hovering like a poised vulture above the American Re .. public now. These two mediums of televis­ion and motion pictures claim to be the greatest educational med .. iums ever invented in human his­tory but instead of functioning in th~t ~apacity, they are operating pnnc1pally as propaganda agencies and transmission belts for spread­ing alien philosophies which would spell the end of Christian civiliza­tion which has been almost two centuries in the building. There is something definitely wrong at the top of the communi­cations mediums of the nation or the silence on the menace of World C~mmunism would be replaced w1th constant warnings of the danger we face from this implac· able enemy at the gates. One of the first pink gladiators to leap into the arena was Neu~ berger of Oregon who has never been known to chirp against the innumerable scoundrels who have taken the fifth amendment to pro­tect themselves in connection with their Communist activities, but whose heart started bleeding all over the floor of the Senate about this case. It would, he insisted, create a rift between this country and Can~ ada which might not be mended and he wanted a special commit~ tee appointed to investigate the investigators. To back up his posi­tion, he quoted three of the most extreme 'liberal" newspapers in the country, the New York Times, the New York Herald Tribune and the Christian Science Monitor. Death Is a tragedy at best and when a human being takes his life, it is doubly so and there is no normal person who does not re­gret the unfortunate end of the Canadian Ambassador to Egypt. But those who would have us drop all measures for protecting the internal security of the Unit~ ed States just because of the sui­cide of a Canadian in Egypt, are lacking in the concern for the safety of their own country which every good American should, and does, feel. Noted American Has Clear Pidure Of External Enemies of the U. S. We have frequently made the written observation that no human being is capable of grasping, in all its ramifications and detailed com~ plexity, the World Conspiracy against the United States whicQ has been in the building for many generations and which in recent years has made great strides to­ward fulfillment. We still think that this Is true and that the Master Plan is too vast and far-reaching in its opera­tion for any one person to com­prehend it in its entirety but there is one person who, in our opinion, comes nearer to possessing com­plete knowledge of its inner work .. ings than perhaps any other Amer­ican. That is the Honorable Norman Dodd, who was Director of Research to the Special Com~ mittee of the Congress of the United States set up to Investigate Tax Exempt Foundations.

April, 1957 Our Nation Has Lost Its Way By Russell Maguire (Editor American Mercury) Our nation has lost its way because you and I have failed to fulfill our sacred duties a.s trustees and custod­Ians of a great Christian heritage. We have tolerated much crime and wrongdoing. We have ignored num­erous acts of treason. We have let ourselves rot and fall apart on the basic eternal truths. Now is the time to remake ourselves spiritually, mor­ally, and physically. Let us listen to God's plan for America. From this day forward let us sincerely work for meeting the deepest needs of our people. We need a better way of life. Listening to ourselves has failed. We have become warped and ruled by sinister men. William Penn said: 1'Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants!" Ed­mund Burke said: "All that Is nec­essary for triumph of evil is that good men will do nothing." We have prov­ed this point. Let's clear the record of our be­trayal at Yalta, Tehran and Geneva. Let us never again have to apologize to the Poles for hiding the facts on the Katyn Forest Massacre; to Korea for permitting ourselves to be part of their betrayal; to Chiang Kai-shek for putting a knife In his back; to those we have heartlessly forgotten in countries behind the godless Iron Curtain; to our own troops and citi­zens whom we neglected and still neglect in the dark prisons of the Soviet and their "captive nations." At the same time let us clean house here at home. We want no Fifth Amendment citizens. They are a dis­grace to our country, By this time surely we also know that the United Nations is a swamp and death-trap. Let's rid ourselves of this outfit and the spies they brought Into our country to destroy us and our institutions. Our many sinful compromises with godles:!!l Russia write the darkest pages in our nation's history. We should break off diplomatic relations with Russia and electrify with hope the people behind the Iron Curtain. The Russian gangsters won't have time to stir up international troubles -they will be too busy trying to put out the fires in their own country. Our world is in the throes of a titanic strug.gle for the wills and hearts of men. Let us stop being dif· ficult and part of the problem. Let us become part of the cure. Who is right i:!!l not important. What is right is all important. Let us try a renaissance directed by God who made us all and the world In which we live. Let's put beauty and integrity back into our nation and the world. It starts with You and with me. God tells us: "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life."

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Textbook Controversy Stirs The Houston Public Schools The Houston School Board re­cently rejected two economic text­books for use in their public high schools. These were "Applied Eco­nomics" by J. H. Dodd and "Eco­nomics and You" by Sol. Holt. The Board members voted, instead, to re-adopt the textbook currently in use "Economics For Our Times" by Patterson and Smith, published by the McGraw-Hill Company of New York, Toronto and London. All three textbooks had been offered to the Board after selec· tion by a local teacher committee. Previously, they had been select­ed and approved by a State text­book committee which was ap­pointed by the State Board of Ed­ucation. Giving as their reasons for de­clining to accept the first two texts, the Houston School Board said that the authors were inclined to play up the need for govern­ment control and regulation. They also objected to the inclusion in the References of books by certain authors reported as having Com­munist- front' affiliations. Conservative board member, Mrs. Earl Maughmer, Jr., who led the opposition to the rejected books, also voted against the re­adoption of the Patterson-Smith book claiming that, although more cleverly concealed and slyly pro­jected, 11Economics For 0 u r Times" c on t a i n e d propaganda which also approved government planning and control. Below are some of the "loaded" debate questions that appear in this economics text which Hous­ton students will continue to use for the next five years: 1. Resolved that all corporations engaged in interstate com­merce should be chartered by Federal law. 2. Resolved that wage rates in the different groups should be fixed by Federal law. 3. Resolved that a Central Bank­ing System would be more efficient and more stable than our present system. 4. Resolved that all banking should be a government func­tion. !5. Resolved that Federal control of prices and wages should be­come permanent. 6. Resolved that all natural re­sources should be owned and controlled by the Federal gov­ernment. 7. Resolved that immigration re­strictions should be removed in order to provide a supply of cheap labor. 8. Resolved that p r o d u c t i o n should be for use and not for profit. Some of the authors of Refer­ences recommended in this State­approved textbook will be found to be objectionable. For instance, 11Sweden-The Middle Way" by Marquis Childs is included. Ma_r­quis Childs is listed i~. Appen~IX IX as having been affllzated w1th the Coordinating Committee To ~~: $:sh}~~~~~s~ri~~~a~f0Sp~~~ ish Democracy. These were two of a net-work of front organiza­tions set up by the Communist Party in the United ~tate~ !o agi­tate during the Spamsh Ctvtl War at a time when many churches in that country were being destroyed and Catholic Nuns murdered. The inclusion of any author who was affiliated with these multifar­ious interlocking Communist-front ~~T:~~a~i~::gews~~l!e~: o~n:;;J; and it is felt that tax money should not be spent for texts in­cluding them. That the com­mittee who selects the text· books on the State level does not have some way of check­ing them is, to say the least, un­fortunate. Other References include books by Mark Starr, reported in Who's Who in Ame1·ica as having taught economics at Brookwood Labor College. This Communist College was banned by the American Fed­eration of Labor. Starr is also reported as having been affiliated with the Communist-front, Film Audiences for Democracy. Others include: Marshall E. Dimock, reported as having been affiliated with the subversive American Committee for Protection of Foreign-Born and the Communist-fronts, Pro­gressive Citizens of America, Cul­tural and Scientific Conference for World Peace and Citizens Committee for Harry Bridges. Thurman Arnold, reported as having been affiliated with the subversive League of American Writers and the Communist-front Films for Democracy; also, the Communist-lobby, National Com­mittee to Defeat the Mundt Bill. Paul F. Gemmill, reported as having been affiliated with the subversive National Federation for Constitutional Liberties; the Communist-fronts American Com­mittee for Democracy and Intel­lectual Freedom and The National Emergency Conference. He is also listed as having signed a state­ment in defense of the Communist Party. George W. Stocking of the Uni­versity of Texas, reported as hav­ing been affiliated with the Com­munist- front, American Commit­tee for Democracy and Intellectu­al Freedom which defended Com­munist teachers. Stuart Chase, whose citations in government files are too numer­ous to list here. Other Reference m a t e r i a 1 s which many would find objection­able are the Public Affairs Pam­phlets edited by Maxwell S. Stew­art whose record as having been affiliated with subversive and Communist organizations is also too long to list. Stewart was ident­ified in sworn testimo.ny by Louis Budenz as a Communist. Writers sponsored by the Twen­tieth Century Fund recommended in the re-adopted textbook include Myron Webster Watkins and J. F. Dewhurst. The Twentieth Century Fund's executive director is So­cialist Evans Clark, husband of Freda Kirchwey. He was affiliated with the American Council of the Institute of Pacific Relations and co-sponsored the Public Affairs Committee. J. K. Galbraith's book is recom­mended. Galbraith is reported 11to have resigned his post as deputy OPA administrator after he was accused before a Congressional investigating committee of being a radical theorist whose policies were seriously hurting business." This then reflects the back­ground of some of the Reference authors recommended in t h e State-approved textbook "Econo­mics for Our Times" which Hou­ston high school students must continue to use. Also selected and approved by the Texas State Board of Educa­tion but not offered to the Houston School Board by the local teachers committee for approval or rejec­tion were two other texts, "Econo- Page 7 _ There Must Be an End And Maybe This Is It It could be that the fantastic experience of Senator John Wil­liams of Delaware with the Treas­ury Department as revealed in the press recently, might be the straw that breaks the camel's back. In other words, it might be that this revelation of practices by govern­ment agencies that are idiotic, im~ moral and indefensible might be ended because of his disclosures. All senators get an allotment of $1,800 annually for stationery. Delaware is a small state and Senator Williams only used $291 of his allotment. When he tried to return the unused balance to the Treasury Department, he ran into a stone wall. He was informed that he must either spend the money or be sub­ject to payment of income tax on the unexpended balance even though he turned it back to the Treasury. He was advised by a Treasury Department official that another, ~nd perhaps easier, way to settle _ 1t would be to buy $1,500 worth of stationery from the Senate Sup­ply department and then have it sent to the city dump in Washing­ton and burned. Senator Williams has appealed to the Comptroller General for help in getting the Treasw·y De­partment to take back the money which he did not need, and could not use. Meantime, it will be interesting to see if this instance of irrespon­sible handling of taxpayers money can be topped or even tied. Although we know now that there is not going-to be any let-up in the appeasement of Russia, 1cowtowing to England or any cessation of bumbling, fumbling and uncertain foreign policy for the next three years, there 1s some fi~~~o~jt~:nei1~c!~~ J:;tn;~a~~~~~l~ ~ of what is going on and more tax­payers peeking over the shoulders of their public servants in Wash­ington than at any other time in history. Hon. Cliff Clevenger, Congress­man from Ohio, says that the United States is being a brain-­washed into bankruptcy" in o1·der to save Europe from ruin. "I think the greatest brainwashing job in history has been done on the press, on the pulpit and in our educa­tional institutions to justify this idea, and along with it, to put it over, has been an almost abject fear of Russia," Mr. Clevenger said. He had reference to the budget for 1958, of course, which is the largest in peacetime history. The Ohio Congressman expressed fear that this country cannot re­main strong enough to protect it­self if our spending policy is not restricted. ~<Approximately 45% of the present public debt of more than $272 billion arises from loans and grants made to foreign countries in the period between the com- ... mencement of World War I and Feb. 15, 1957.

Hawaii is the big Red Kingdom of Harry Bridges and the statement went over big. of ~sc:'o~~~;~~o~~i~~nC~i~aa:o~~~ Kestnbaum's remarks would carry no weight and occasion no surprise. But Mr. Kestnbaum, it will be remembered, is a special assistant to the President of the United States and naturally his assertions are regarded as having the backing of the President, even though th& White House was quick to repudiate his Honolulu remarks. Kestnbaum is the man selected to replace Dean Clarence Manion to head the Presidential Commit~ tee on relations between the States - and the Federal Government back in 1953 but Sherman Adams dis­covered that Manion was an ad­vocate of Constitutional Govern· ment who could not be side-track­ed and diverted from his course of duty by "Modern Republicans". So he was fired and Kestnbaum was given the assignment. Later de­velopments hav& proved that Kestnbaum should have been given the job in the first place as the lay statesman from Indiana, with his definite and unyielding convictions concerning Constitu~ tional Government would have been sadly out of place in any berth having to do with "Modern Republicanism".

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE We Should Run the World When We Can't Deliver Our Own Mail . It has al~ays been our strong conviction that the Founding Fathers d1d a perfect JOb when they wrote the Constitution of the United States. unde~~a~~i~~ ~~c~a~:r~~i;~~~nt I~~a~~l:i:1~~P~~}ti0fo t~~~ ~~~d~~~ centuries ahead and anticipate human weakness, culpability and greed as they fashioned the greatest document in recorded history. But now, at long last, we have changed our mind with reSpect to one provision of that great treatise on fundamental organic law. We are now ready to admit that in one case- they goofed. That was when, in specifying the~ limited authority and powers of the Federal government, they delegated to it the responsibility of transporting the mails. It has now been proved that this assignment was too heavy and that the Federal government is not capable of hand1ing the job. It has all it can do to look after the weHare. the in­terests and the security of foreign countries over which it has assumed protective custody. The Founding Fathers should have specified that the vast under­ta~ ing of transporting the mails be entrusted to private enterprise, With just enough Federal supervision to invest it with the force and effect of a national public service to all the people as distinguished from private performance for individual profit. In that way, it would have been divorced from political turmoil and considerations In either a so-called Republican or so-called Demo­cratic national administration and forced to operate on a strict basis of uninterrupted and meritorious service to all the people alike. And the mail would have been delivered on time. There is no call for the United States Postal system to operate at a profit, or even on a self-sustaininp: basis for the Federal government is not supposed to be in business of any kind, condition or characer- · profitable or otherwise. It was set up solely to transport the mails as efficiently and swiftly as humanly possible but it has not done that and we now face the fact that there is a complete break-down in the service which constitutes a national disgrace. Of course the Founding Fathers could not possibly foresee that the day would come when those chosen to head this vital agency of government would be pinheaded politicians whose only claim to fame would lie in the fact that they had been able to snag the electoral vote of their State for the successful candidate for President. Neither did they dream that such pinheaded politicians would publicly disgrace our whole governing system and cast doubt on our capacity for self-government by using the Postal Department as an instrument for publicly hammering members of Congress over the head or as a club for beating them into submission to their will. In other than government circles, there is an ugly name for the performance when a man demands big money and makes a threat in connection with such demand. Postmaster General Summerfield has informed Congress that if $47,000,000 is not placed on the barrel­head, the postal service will be greatly curtailed. In another and more honest era of history, this amount would have paid the entire expenses of government. That the Postal Department has spent all its money and needs more probably goes without saying. It's a Federal agency, isn't it? And don't all Federal agencies constantly have their hand out? Like all the rest of the bureaucratic units who, collectively, em­ploy 2,400,000 people when 1,000,000 could do the actual work, tho Postal Department is a v11st feather~bed project which provides a soft berth for the political parasites of both parties and who, because of the pernicious civil service system, can't be discharged when the term of the one who appointed them has expired. By this we do not refer to the men who go from house to house and building to building to deliver the mail for this is a case where those who do the walking have more brains ln their feet than those who do the thinking have in their heads. There is seldom a complaint of post­men personally and if the upper echelons of the service performed with the same dedication to duty, the collapse of the service would not have been brought about to shock and shame the nation. The whole point Is th~t the American people are entitled, and demand. a steady and unceasmg distribution of the mails, uninterrUPted by brawls between the Department head and Congress during which period, they take time out to make faces and call each other names. If the appropriation for the Postal Department Is insufficient to ~ain~ain it for the fiscal year, it should be increased after an lnvestiga~ tion ts made. o( the agency to see how many deadheads are clogging up the machmery and after all the surplus termites have been flushed out of the wbocrwork. That should be the long-term objective of Congress. Meantime, they have come to the rescue with more money and bail the department out of its own stupidity and mismanagement problems. It's a hold-up pure and simple but Congress may have to come. across. This should not be too difficult a task for Congress which in the past dozen years, has sloughed off $40,000,000,000.00 In ch~ritablo grants to roreign Socialist States and for which we have received absolutely nothing of value in return. and for which stupidity we have earned the wholesome contempt of the recipients. Th~ whole aff.at.r boils down to the fact that the American people are en~ttled to effiCient postal service, not four or five days a week, accordmg to th~ ~ood of. the Postmaster General, but to six days of f~~;~~d ao~1ic~ff~c~~:t ~~~~~very of mail to every residence, shop, fac~ If .the Congress. can't a~hieve this, then it· is high time they lay off the1: jobs of trymg to fmance industrial projects of Afghanistan, Monrovia and French West Africa and buckle down until they get the American Postal System in operation again. Ap.il, 1957 Time for Voters to Ciet Tough With Lawmakers Here is iust one out of many ways in which lawmakers in gen~ eral double-cross their constiuents by substituting their own opinion for the convictions of those who elected them. In this case, it is a State and not a Federal, offense. On Sunday, April 7, a Houston newspaper carried an article with · an Austin dateline from which we quote this interesting excerpt: 11The House went into a flurry of action on segregation bills, but backstage talk in the Sen­ate is that the Upper Chamber will not exert itself too much on them. There is considerable indication that these measures may die in the Senate." At the last election, the people of Texas voted approximately 4 to 1 i~ favor of strengthening seg­regatiOn and related laws and if they. believe like they voted, we predict that swellheaded members of the Texas Senate whO may have an idea of giving them the run~ around will hear from them by telegram, telephone, postcard or letter. This, of course, is not an iso- ~~t~t~~~~la~~~n1:o~zrr~~~:;lt~t!~~ qutre delusions of their own im~ ~~~~11 C:ea-~7:kerac~h~c~arsdi~~~~ hard p~t to earn a living any other way Wlll run for high office and get elected. His first official act is to out~grow his hatband and make the irrevocable decision that he is a hot shot and know all the an~ swers. Who do his constituents think they are any way? The American people have their hands full riding herd on those who misrepresent them in Wash­ington without having to constant~ ly case the legislative joint in their own State capitals. If the time comes when Ameri~ can citizens begin to think for themselVes, they will realize that every State in the Union is in better financial condition and more solvent than the Federal Government and that the State authorities have proved t11e1n.~ selves much more capable of ad~ ministering their State goJ)ern­ments than Federal officials ltave in national affairs. And still they talk about ttFederal Aid'' to the schOols. More arrant nonsense is hard to imagine. When the publishers of two newspapers in Syracuse, New York, refused, out of a sense of decency, to accept paid advertis­ing of the lewd and indecent mo­tion picture Baby Doll, written by the noted purveyor of filth and obscenity, Tennessee Williams, they were bitterly attacked by a group of 30 persons in that city, according to information and newspaper clippings forwarded to us. These 30 persons were not mo~ tion picture operators or any one connected with that industry. They were ministers of local churches. ult is not the government's le­gitimate object to make men rich or to repair, by direct grants of money or legislation, losses not incurred in the public service. This would be substantially the use of the property of some for the benefit of otlters."-Martin Van Buren on September 7, 1837.
