Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 5 Fort Worth , Texa s, March, 1954 No. ] The Stage Is All Set for Surrender of the United States Into International Bondage GOD'S GIFT TO -LONELY LADIES It now appears that James (They Come Cheaper by the Doz­en) Roosevelt will make the race for Congress from California's twenty-sixth district, after all. When his wife recently desig­nated him as a Gay Lothario who went wenching in all directions, national Fair Deal leaders shied away from him like a country colt from a fire engine, but California party officials took a different view. Apparently they decided that his newly acquired reputation as a lady-killer, whether deserved or not, may prove an asset in a sec­t ion where women heavily out­number men and that it may in­spire hopeful females to become interested in the race who have heretofore been inactive in poli­tics. Meantime, assuming that his wife's charges are true, he should have the advantage of an effective feminine campaign committee all set and ready to take to the hust­ings bearing a message to their ~isters of his devastating appeal. Women With 'New Look' Tribute to the women of the National Association of Pro Amer4 ica at their recent annual conven4 tion in Fort Worth, paid by Homer Tomlinson, prominent publishing executive: "Here's to the woman who p laces love of Count ry above love of Cards. Who recognizes that · the Ballot Box is even more important than the Beauty Bar. And who knows from reading and study that Treaties are more vital than Teas." Every Communist is an Interna4 tionalist and every I nternational· ist is a Communist.-Tom Linder, Commissioner of Agriculture, State of Georgia, Atlanta. Shades of Colonel House And Also Harry Hopkins We are aware, of course, that the Greeks gave us the arch, the Phoenicians gave us boats, the Chinese gave us paper and the Germans gave us the printing press, but what we would like to know is who gave us Sherman Adams? He is reported in the press as insisting that his proper title is "assistant president of the United States" and not simply " assistant to the president" as some of the species before him have been des· ignated We didn't vole for hirn for this office and we can't find any one who did. In fact , we didn't know that the Constitution provided for any such office and s till we find him throw· ing his weigh t arou nd over the White House, issuing orders in matters of policy, fir ing people and performing generally like a duly elected official of the American electorate. What gives, any way? Planners Fail to Equalize Law of Supply With Demand Over in Socialist England, often referred to as "Squirrel's Para­dise" out of tribute to their bum­per crop of n uts, some "liberal" preachers and social service work­ers undertook a noble experiment in "planned marriage." They set up an organization called the Marriage Society, open to members Of both sexes with the obvious objective of encourag­ing eligible bachelors to accom­pany lonely spinsters on a per­sonally conducted tour to the al~~tet the organization had to be disbanded when its founders re­luctantly admitted that the only ones applying for membership were thousands of eager and ex­pectant old maids. "Englishmen just naturally like 'em young" one of the sponsoring preachers remarked philosophi­cally to no one in particular, as the worthy project exploded in his face. Throughout the ages, unstable human minds have been swayed by th'e magic power of suggestion. Hitler said tha t if an idea is ex pressed and repeated over and ov er a g a in, it will finally come to be accepted. for more than twenty years, the combined forces of domestic treason and foreign conspira cy have been stabbing the America n mentality with the suggestion that the United States must dismant le itself as a Constitutional Re public, renounce its sovereignty as an independe nt power a ;,d deliver its citizens into the custody of World Government. Thanks to a majority of our leaders in Washington who have performed like hypnotized victims r of a n invisible Svengali, we are now p reparing to do just t hat. The first step toward the ultimate dissolution of a sovereign n ation is the surrender of the purse and the final act of capitulation is the yielding up of the sword to the enemies seeking to overthrow and conquer it. The United States has now done both-with the sanction and ap­proval of elected officials sworn to uphold the Cons titution and pledged to defend the American Flag and the Republic for which it stands. All t ha t remains is for us to observe the formali ties incident to the transfer of authority from our legally constituted Federal govern­ment in Washington to the United Nations in New York. The purse represents the American taxpayers' money of course and the sword means the Armed Forces of the United States. The surrender of the purse was an accomplishment of the Roose­velt and Truman administrations who meticulously fo llowed Lenin's instructions for depleting our financial resources and impoverish ing our treasury by lavishly throwing money around all over the world. Yielding up the sword is being achieved by the Eisenhower ad­ministration through proposals to deny Congress its Constitutional right as the sole agency authorized to order American troops into action and to confer this responsibility on the Security Council of the United Nations. We do not especially relish the role of a sentinel repeatedly warn­ing of t he approach of the enemy or constantly u ndertaki ng to prod into action other Americans who have as much equ ity in the potential danger posed by this ominous threat as we. After all , we have only two hands over which an alien conqueror can snap the handcuffs and only one neck to bow to a foreign dictator's yoke. And so we will try to minimize our own protests against obvious betrayal of the Republic and present a brief part of the record of offi­cial actions taken so far to shove us inside the trap which international conspirators have set. First, it is important to remember that we have so diverted our Armed Forces to distant parts of the earth, in response to unidentified oiders, that we now have troops in thirty-nine different countries around the world and commitments to keep our soldiers in Europe for twenty years. At the same time, the invisible masters who spearheaded the movement to send our troops abroad have also demanded the scrap~ ping o.f our immigration laws and the admission of millions of aliens to our shores. Taking Americans out of the United States and bringing foreigners in is obviously an integral part of the overall plan to soften us up and manipulate this country more readily into a Communist-controlled World Government. Also, it is vital to keep in mind that more than ten thousand Execu­Continued on Page 2. Millions of Americans Think It--The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE March, 1954 STAGE ALL SET Continued From Page 1. tive Agreements with foreign countries were entered into between 1945 and 1954, most of them believed to represent concessions to alien powers and of whose contents the AmeriCan people have not been advised. Too, there are reported to be two hundred treaties drawn up by various agencies of the United Nations now in the hands of the President, 1·cady to be presented to the Senate for ratification. Above all, the fact must not be overlooked that it is impossible with its present membership for the Senate of the United States to p~ss ]egislation which would prevent these treaties with foreign countnes from overriding the American Constitution. This was proved in the case of the Bricker amendment where some of those who had even sponsored and signed the original measure. tucked their tails and ran when pressure of unknown origin was applied to them by way of the White House. To those who hold that it can't happen here, and that none of our rights and freedom under the Constitution will be surrendered, we respectfully point out that it has already happened here. There are scores of cases to prove this, the most infamous of which is the Status Treaty ratified last summer under which American soldiers can no longer be tried by Court Martial as provided in the Constitution, but must be tried in the country where the offense is committed and by the courts of such country. pote~lil:1lin~~~g~~~~n~o~~:et~~ ~~:;_ i~r:~~ctb~s ~~~::s b;~~n m~~; when it is amended in 1955, it will forge chains around the American people from which there will be no escape. One set of such amendments has been prepared in London and approved by large groups in this country which, if adopted, will leave 110 loophole by which the United States can withdraw its citizens from the slave status to which they would then be forever consigned. There is also an official committee to draw up amendments com­posed of eight members of the United States Senate, seven of whom are outright internationalists and all of whom voted against the origi­nal Bricker amendment. They are Alexander Wiley, John Sherman Coop?r, Spessard L. Holland, Homer Ferguson, William F. Knowland, Guy M. Gillette. John J. Sparkman, and Mike Mansfield. There is little likelihood that their views will be given much consideration in view of the fact that professional internationalists already have the amend­ments cut and dried. The scheme which compelled us to yield up authority over Ameri­can troops and transfer it from the Congress to the United Nations has been clever. n.eat and highly effective. Article 9 of the section of the United Nations Charter titled "Con­tl'ibutio~ J of Armed Forces by Member Nations" says: "All member nations shall have the opportunity as well as the obligation to place Armed Forces, facilities and other assistance at the disposal of the Security.Council on its call and in accordance with their capabilities and the reqUirements of the Security Council". Article 1, section 8 of the American Constitution provides, on the other hand. that only Congress shall have power to "raise and support armies, to provide and maintain a Navy and to make rvles for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces". . In vie~ of these two conflicting provisions in the Charter of the Umted Nat10ns and the Constitution of the United States the Senate Foreign R.elations Committ~e, of which Alexander Wil~y is chair­man, appomted a sub-committee to work out a "solution". In its final report, as published in Document 87 of the 83rd Congress entitled "Re· VIew of the Umted Nations Charter", this committee, expressed the hope that all doubt could be eliminated about the "availability of our Armed Forces" to the United Nations and said they "believed it wise that the Congress ... should confirm its view that the President has the power and obligation in compliance with our undertaking under the Charter, to make the Forces provided in the agreements available to the Security Council ... " This is equivalent to a demand that Congress amend the Constitu­tion of the United States, which it has not the slightest power to do and that they surrender authority over the Armed Forces themselves' and give it to the President who, in turn, may transfer it to the Security Council of the United Nations. We do not know whether Congress took this un-Constitutional action or not as we saw nothing about it in the public press and our head became so dizzy from trl:ing to digest all the fancy talk and flossy reports about the transaction, that we gave up trying to find out what actually happened. All we know is that John Foster Dulles popped up in the press re­cently and announced t~at, un~er the "New Look" the "Congress has already empowered President Eisenhower to hurl American Forces into battle if any one of at least thirty-three nations is attacked'' and at a press interview the following day, the President confirmed this astounding announcement. Aside from the realization that control over American troops is transferred from Congress to the United Nations, we gather also that we now have not two. but three, ways of amending the Constitu­tion of the United States. A Requiem of the Republic by Mr. Remlow Harris of the South Coast News was inserted in the Congressional Record of February 3 from v.:hich we quote in part: ''Here lies our nation ... 1\furdered by enemies from \\'ithin who pretended to be patriots . o • Here lies America o • , her shroud, the Puerta Rican Affair Is a Senators Perform Warning of Worse to Come Ll"ke Tra•"ned Seals The cowardly attack on members of Congress by Puerta Rican Com-munists should have occasioned us no In Confirming Warren great surp1·ise. The wonder is, come to think of It, that more incidents of this nature have not occurred in view of en­couragement to such action implied in the performance of top level poli­ticians in Washington who give aid and comfort to Communists practi­cally every time they open their mouth. What, for instance, are ignorant foreigners bent on harming this coun­try, to think when an American sena­tor who makes super-human efforts to rid government of Communist rats meets opposition at every turn? Why woutti they not be embolden­ed to action when highly placed gov­ernment officials assail this senator like buzzards attacking the carcass of a dead horse? This dastardly assault on innocent men by a few crazy and slap-happy inlanders is but a brief preview of what is planned by worlO Commu­nists who are scheming the grand take-over of this country after the softening-up process is completed by their puppets here. If this vicious attack by demented aliens would serve as a lesson to Communist sympathizers in high posi­tion in Washington, it might not have been in vain but no lesson at all will be learned from it. The howl against "methods" of in­vestigators will still be emitted from the throats of inffltrated Amel'icans, internationalists and other various and sundry subversives. "Liberal" members of Congress will continue to !earch out "rules" restraining chair­men of. investigating committees from effectively dealing with enemies of this country and interviews will still be given out from high government ofticials in which they prate of "dis­regard of the standards of fair play" as if there were any such thing as fair play where Bolshevik bandits are concerned. When she read the list of women on whom her oldest son is alleged to have bestowed his favors, Elea­nor Roosevelt is reported to have become highly incensed. It is claimed that she charged him with having practiced racial prejudice and discrimination to a degree which had brought disgrace on her and which reflected on her stand­ing as the arbiter of social customs in the United Stat~s. Senator J. W. Fulbright of Arkansas has charged that the FBI has given Senator McCarthy access to ftles on subversives who are trying to overthrow the Ameri­can government. It appears that in the eyes of the Arkansas solon' this is a great crime although w~ do not remember that he made any protest when traitors in the government gave our secret files to Russia. It is understandable that the Sen .. ate employed a voice vote in its confirmation of Earl Warren o! Cal­ifornia as Chief Justice of. the su .. preme Court of the United Stales. In a case Jike this, no member can be pinned down as to how he voted and none will have to admit that he approved a man for this high position who was totally and com .. pletely unqualified. When questioned, they can always say they were out of the Senate at the time. This method of voting, where no official record is made, is often agreed upon when a specially distasteful matter is before that body and where many members must hold their nose while performing as trained seals in­stead of as elected and responsible representatives o! the American peo­ple. There was of course opposition to Warren's confirmation, just as there was amazement and regret at his appointment, but the invisible forces who ordered his selection managed to frame witnesses from California before they ever left that State and with this smear against them to start, it was easy to disregard whatever evidence they might have presented. Texas Judge Makes Sound Decision on Right to Worlc District Judge C. E. Nelson of. the Amarillo, Texas, district has ruled that union membership is not com­pulsory on the part of the workers in order to hold a job. The suit, which at this time affects only employes of the Santa Fe Rail­road, was instituted by fifteen em .. ployes of that road last May who did not want to become members of a union. These workers held that their Constitutional rights to earn a living would be violated by a requirement that they must take out a union card to hold a job. Judge Nelson held that a compul• sory union shop would violate fivl! amendments to the Federal Constitu• tion and also "an essential and inher­ent right of man regardless of any Constitutional provision. Of course the Supreme Court is yet to be hurdled and anything can hap­pen there, but the sound ruling of the Texas judge is regarded as an awakening in some areas to the fun­damental fact that Congress has no right to enact legislation making union membership a test of the right to work. The new term "Oxnamism" is one , applied to a clergyman who takes out membership in anti-American organ­izations and preaches Marxism f!om the pulpit and then clears himself of subversion by proving that he was never a Communist Party member.

The organized and coordinated fight against McC•rthy because of his expose of his country's ene­mies holed up in government, in the Army and in other strategic positions of power is gathering mo­mentum as his efforts become more fruitful of results. Originally, it was mostly out­spoken and known Communist sympathizers who stuck their necks out to denounce his '(meth­ods" while the hard core of oppo­sition to official investigations of Soviet underground operations in this country, remained behind the scenes and directed the procedure. Now. one by one, they are coming out of their hole and crowding into the act. Among the most dependable aides of Communist world plan­ners to be found in this country are the non - Communist- Party members who support Marxian policies and who are of inestimable help to their invisible masters be­cause of their lack of official con­nection with the Communist Party Chief among these are numer­ous columnists, staff w1·iLers and other journalistic functionaries who have filled their columns with slanted material for so long and have followed prepared propagan­da press releases so meticulously that they would have to take an anesthetic before they could give birth to an original idea. Latest to blast out at McCarthy with typical party line precision was a left-wing writer, commen­tator and director of a controlled broadcasting system who barri­caded himself behind a micro­phone. levelled his pop-gun, fired and fell flat on his face. Fortunately, in all such cases, every knock is a boost for this unafraid defender of his country's security and his stature is grad­ually elongated as the shadows of the political and press pimps who pander to the nation's enemies, increasingly diminish in public confidence and esteem. Partly because of high taxes and partly because or widespread sub­versive teachings in educational insti­tutions, heads or universities and col­leges are repoited to be having a hard time getting contributions and beque::.ts these days.

First, it established the fact that while Bishop Oxnam is not a card carrying Communist. he has had very friendly and helpful association with the Communist crowd and other anti­American organizations, f rom the days of the I.W.W. to the present time. It also established the fact that Oxnam didn't hesitate to send out pro-Communist propaganda and that at one time or another he belonged to, or sponsored, at least nine organ­izations now listed as either subver­sive, or actively pro-Communist. All this is now in the record on the sworn testimony of the Bishop him­self. Every one remembers the howl that went up from the leflwing press and commentators against J., B. Mat­thews when he charged before the Un-American Activities Committee that "Communists had infiltrated the Protestant Clergy." Some Southern newspaper columnists like Ralph Mc­cm ·of the Atlanta Constitution wept briny tears for the '"poor Clergy." Others want<•d to .. take Matthews for a ride."' Well. brother. Oxnam's own sworn testimony should change their tune. but will it? Methodist leaders in England boast that "State Social­ism in England is not Marx ist, but Methodist! Do they hope to accom­plish lhe same thing here in America? With the help of a few Baptists, Presbyterians and Episcopalians, plus a few "educational"' institutions like Harvard and Yale, they're making headway all right. Those of us who expose such religious •·takers" are called ''Klu-Kluxers", "Pope Kiss­ers", "McCarthyites", "Bigots" and '·Fundamentalists·•. -Rev. A. C. Shuler, Jacksonville, Florida, Minister. While young American boys are taking it on the chin at the battle front in wars which politic ians in the United Nations may cook up. Penta­gon brass hats will be safe in a new underg1·ound retreat just completed. It is sixty-five miles fr01n Washington and was built at a cost of thirty-five million dollars to the American tax­payers. From a Washington newspaper man: "You have a nice system in your articles. Your keen mind seizes on the vital, the crucial. You point out a \veakness and play it up, like contrasting the phonies with real Americans.

So effective has been our policy of mixing into matters that did not concern us in an effort to win friendship, that United States repre­sentatives at that meeting had to be guarded day and night by police re­serves with guns ready to draw. There was a time when United States officials remained free of en­tangling alliances and as a result our representatives were r espectfully received by each and every country around the world. Now they are about as welcome as a polecat at a pic.Y..c and everywhere they go they are greeted with jeers, insults and jibes. And yet, we continue the same pol­icy of interference and do not seem to learn by experience that the saf­est, surest and soundest policy for either an individual or a nation to follow is to attend to one's own busi­ness and let every one else do the Drink That Peps Up the World To Be Investigated The Senate Banking Commitlee and the Federal Trade Commission will investigate the coffee situation, it is announced, in an cHart to find out why the prices or this product are skyrocketing. We wish them luck in this under ­ta k ing and hope the ir ef for ts will re­sult in holding down the cost o! th is universally popular beverage which sends millions scurrying out of their offices at ten, two and four. PersOnally, we can't get too worked up over it as this is one time the rising cost of a product does not affect us since we have never tasted coffee. There is no reason whatever for this abstinence; we just never got started on it. But we do have vast respect for this drink and its social potentialities. We know plenty of people, in­cluding members of our own family, who will not speak to anybody early in the morning until they have quaf­fed a cup of hot java, after which they instantly become amiable human beings at peace with all the world. We are convinced we are missing something, but it is too late now to do anything about it. ----- During 1953 the Methodist Church lost 28,904 of its members according to Rev. Albert Hoover, director of the denomination's statistical office in Chicago. Some officials of the church expressed their belief that the loss was due to apostasy from biblical doctrines and to "Oxnamism" in the denomination's political activities. Claude Williams, former Presbyte­rian preacher of Helena, Arkansas, was recently ordered unfrocked by his church for "heresy". That's a new name for Communism, probably. At this rate, it is going to take a long time to dispose of 7,000 ministers allegedly occupying pulpits in the USA, who preach and practice Com­munism. Pago l "The Cheshire Cat Has Gone But the Smile Remains" Sometime ago, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, speaking for the president of the United States, gave the Senate assurance that Mr. Eisenhower would not submit the Covenant on Human Rights or the Genocide Conven­tion of United Nations to them for approval. The president's promise, made through his Secretary of State, was widely publicized at the time in the press, over radio and television. On March 2. a press dispatch, with a New York dateline ap­peared in the Chicago Tribune which said: The United Nations II u man Rights Commission today voted 12 to 2, with 4 abstentions, to postpone its consideration or a treaty pro­vision regarding the right to own property. Morris Perlsweig, representative of the World J ewish Congress, appealed to the Commission to cx­J; edite the work. Perlsweig noted with gratitude that the United Stales was partici~ pating in the work of the Commis­sion, although S t a t e Secretary Dulles had announced that the Eisenhower administration would not present the Covenant to the Senate (or approval "To some, th(' position or the United States may seem illogical. but we preler lack of logic to lack of interest" Pcrlswcig said. Comparing the United States to the Cheshire cal o( Alice in Won­derland, Pcrlsweig said: ''The cat has gone but the grin rema i11s. We are confident tha t the ca t will r e­appear." Is there some sort of sinister implication in the remarks of this representative of a world group who seems so sure that the Cove­nant will be approved in the United States in spite of the presi­dent's assurance to the contrary? Does this character know some­thing which has been withheld from the American people and when he says "The cat has gone but the grin remains. We are con­fident that the cat will reappear." just what does he mean? The American people are en~ titled to know. The Eisenhower adminisll·ation does not come right out openly and attack McCarthy, but employs indirect and underhanded tactics to accomplish its results. Leaders of the administration know that, in a showdown, the ma­jority of un-infiltrated Americans will side with the Wisconsin senator in his efforts to clean out Communist rats and they hesitate to bring the issue to a head by an outright attack on him. Harold Stassen has just hired a former member of Dean Acheson'!:! law firm as an assistant. The name ot the new employe of Stassen's give­away prog1:am is James P. Grant who worked with General George P. Mar­shall in China. lie should make good in the new job since he apparently had experience in "giving away'' something while working with Mar­shall. Unluckily, it was China that was given away to the Communisb in that case. But at any rate, Stassen is living up to the rule of "Fair Deal· ers first" in government jobs.

Of course the principal promo­ter of this Human Rights mon­strosity was Eleanor Roosevelt who saw herself as the architect of a brave new world and who felt that she was paged by destiny to do a reconstruction job on the universe. Although she was tossed off the Commission, she is still directing operations from the side~ lines. But this " property rights" angle which could conceivably strip her and some of her crackpot cronies of their vast holdings is reported to have inspired a paralyzing fear of this Frankenstein which is caus­ing her and her fellow dim-wits some uneasy moments. In their determined efforts to mix all nations, creeds, races, colors and religions into one big bundle and wash them all in the same suds, they leaned over just a trifle too far and, as a result, got a very vital part of their anatomy caught in the wrin~er. Of American Security We Bow to the Dictates of HOW BIG ARE Once again J. Edgar Hoover emerges as one of the great and good men of the age and one of the most alert and patriotic public. servants ever to guard the in­terests of any nation. It now develops that time and again during recent years, his FBI had given detailed evidence of the potential danger of the Communist Puerta Rican conspirators and that he had furnished this data to the Department of Justice. In keeping with Department of Justice traditions since early in 1933, that division did nothing about it until five men were shot down on the floor of Congress when it went into action. It is understandable why Justice officials failed to take action against Communist conspirators while two men who were admit­tedly friendly to Stalin were in the White House. There is no satisfactory expla­nation as to why this warning from Hoover continued to be ig­nored by the present attorney gen­eral unless it was because he was busy preparing Supreme Court briefs in behalf of other dark­skinned people who are the unwit­ting pawns in Moscow's scheme for mongrelization of the white race in the United States. Meantime, all honor to J . Edgar Hoover, the incorruptible guardian of his country's security and an American patriot without peer. There is currently a lot in the press about the firing o! MacArthur and hints that the whole story of who ordered him fired will be brought to light, but we doubt this seriously. It will be suppressed .when the show­down comes because the information about who ordered him fired would also disclose lhe facts about who is still helping to run the show. There has been no change in invisible lead­ership for the past twenty-one years. An Oracle of Human Wisdom THE "BIG FOUR"? For years now we have been prac­tically a worshiper at the shrine of Joe McCarthy and regarded h im as the ultimate in devoted, consecrated and courageous Americanism but it looks like we are going to be com­pelled to withdraw our support of the Wisconsin senator. We have just learned from an un­impeachable source that he is "dan­gerous"- in fact, the most dangerous person in the United States. Our authority for this estimation o( Senator McCarthy is that super­patriot, that champion of Constitu­tional government, that defender of American institutions, customs and traditions, Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. So when she gave out an interview recently to the effect that Senator McCarthy was dangerous, we just started trembling like a glass of raspberry jelly and shuddered to think what conspiracy this former Marine was hatching up. The discriminating judgment of this great lady in evaluating human character has been demonstrated on so many occasions that we just can't af(ord to disregard her warning. We are thinking, especially, of her valiant defense of such outstanding American patriots as Alger Hiss, Paul Robeson and Owen Lattimore when they were under fire. Also, we cannot forget her staunch championship of Gerhart Eisler, Judy Coplon and Harry Bridges when they were the tragic victims of American reactionaries. We recall, too, her un­tiring efforts to keep Communists out of the White House when she oc­casionally slept there and we re­member with pride how carefully she has always been in the selection of her associates and how she has scru­pulously avoided contact with any one even remotely suspected of subversive activities, as well as her stern re4 So far as any tangible benefit to this count ry is concerned, the Big Four Berlin Conference was an utter flop, and the only result to accrue from ten days of wind­jamming there was a decision to hold another conference. At the next bull session in Geneva, our diplomats will prob­ably get their ears pinned back as usual and , in spite of rigged press reports which will again sift back to this country, Molotov and his Chinese buddies will dominate the situation. The Geneva shindig is the pre­Jude to the admission of Red China to the United Nations and any American who can't see this is both blind and dumb. Summing up all international conferences in which this country has participated in recent years, the conclusion is obvious that if we had gathered up our top diplo­mats, locked them in a room and thrown the key away, our position in world affairs would have been far stronger. --- - - - If treaties are made infringing our liberties, it will be too late to say that our Constitutional rights are vi o 1 ate d.-Patrick Henry. fusal to join any Communist fronts, or sub.versive youth groups. In view of her impeccable record in behalf of Americanism all down the line, we felt it was our duty, when she denounced Senator Mc­Carthy, to just haul off and toss him overboard. So goodbye, Senator McCarthy. We are sorry to desert you but we just can't fly in the face of such expert opinion and unerring judgment. March, 1954 Manion Cut Down in the Interest of Uniformity Honorable Clarence Manion of In. diana, a top-flight American patriot and an outstanding authority on Con· stitutional law, was fired recently as chairman of a commission set up by the President to define the rights of the states in the American economy, at a time when the Chief Executive still had some idea of recognizing and respecting such rights. The setting up of the Commission would have been unnecessary in the first place if administration leaders had possessed even elementary knowl­edge of the framework of the Amer· ican governing system. The only sensible angle in connec­tion with the whole proceeding was the action of the presidential advisers in choosing Manion to head the Com­mission, instead of running true to form and selecting a former Truman servitor to do the job. In this capacity, Manion w o u 1 d have given the President a foolproof sketch of the American form of gov­ernment, outlining the rights of the sovereign states as opposed to the limited authority granted the Federal government by the Constitution. As soon as the White House dis­covered its mistake in naming a man who towered head and shoulders above its usual appointees, Manion was fired . To add insult to injury, he was given his discharge not by the President, but by an ex-lumberjack from New Hampshire who apparently knows nothing and cares less about the organic structure of the American Republic. The incident is reminiscent of a s{ory w~ have told before but which, because of its application in th is in­stance, will bear repetition. Periander, a Corinthian despot once asked a neigh boring King how he kept hi s subjects in a continual condition of abj ect se rvitude. For r e ply, the King took him to the wheat field , drew his sword and cut off every head of grain that rose above the rest. K. C. Mu, former governor of Formosa now in Chicago, has made an attack on Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek charging that he is undertaking to set up a dictator­ship, which has all the earmarks of a budding smear campaign. We do not know, of course, what is in this Chinaman's mind but we do have a fair knowledge of propa~ ganda tactics and it is our guess that this is the beginning of a planned a n d co-ordinated at­tack against the Nationalist leader in this country in order to pave the way for the admission of Communist China to the United Nations. It would be well to watch and see how widespread this de­nunciation of Chiang Kai-Shek be .. comes. The invisible rulers who call the shots are a slick bunch. We are concerned about the rumor that the Soviets who were given steel plates from our Bureau of Printing and Engraving, so they could print any amount of Amer­ican money they desired, are using this money to buy up large prop­erties and industries in this coun· try. So far as is known, these · plates have not been returned and are still in the hands of the Rus· sians. Ye gods. March, 1954 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Twenty Senators Vote Against Any Form Of Protection of American Sovereignty The American people should long remember that out of the ninety-six members of the United States Sen­ate, twenty of them have put them­selves on record as unalterably op­posed to any form of amendment which would protect our national sovereignty and prevent treaty law from over-riding the American Con­stitution. That is an amazing attitude for sworn servants of the people pledged to protect and uphold the Constitu­tion but the record is there for all to read, as set down when the Bricker amendment and its various substi­tutes were up for consideration. Those who voted, on all counts, against any form of protection what­ever to this country in the matter of preserving our national sovereign­ty were: John Sherman Cooper of Kentucky; J. W. Fulbright of Ar­kansas; Theodore Francis Green of Rhode Island; Carl Hayden of Ari­zona; Thomas C. Hennings, Jr., of Missouri; Lister Hill of Alabama; Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota; Henry M. Jackson of Washington; Estes Kefauver of Tennessee; John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts: Harley M. Kilgore of West Virginia; Herbert Lehman of New York; Warren G. Magnuson of Washington; A. S. Mike Monroney of Oklahoma; Wayne Morse of Oregon; James E. Murray of Montana; Matthew M. Neely of West Virginia; John 0. Pastore of Rhode Island ; Stuart Symington of Missouri and Alexander Wiley of Wisconsin. 1t will be observed that in the case of Rhode Island, Missouri, Wash­ington and West Virginia, both sena­tors went all out for internationalism and put themselves on record as favoring foreign treaties to replace our domestic laws. This leaves four of these states without representation in the Senate in matters involving the preservation of the Republic, both of their senators having voted against Constitutional safeguards of American liberty and security. Only a Hit Dog Howls Following the announcement by Veterans of Foreign Wars that they would report any suspected Com­munists to FBI, screams of rage rent the air in Norwalk, Connecticut, where the announcement was made. The Veterans should remember that only a hit dog howls and that pro­tests will come only from those who have something to hide. The Communist menace in this country has gone too far to be coped With by diplomatic, kid-glove tactics. At this late date, only sledge­hammer methods will get the job done. The Veterans are to be commended highly for their alert interest in rid­ding the country of its enemies. All California prisons are now equipped with television but the War­den of Folsom Penitentiary, reports that the prisoners are still bored and don't seem interested in the programs at all. Perhaps the United Nations should set up a Commission for Pro­Viding Cultural Entertainment for Under-privileged Convicts. McCarthy Will Do His Own Talking The president has delivered anoth­er left-handed insult to Senator Joe McCarthy which was, as usual, by implication and not an outright at­tack. On March six.th, Adlai Stevenson in a typical bid for attention of American voters who gave him a drubbing in November of 1952, made a blistering attack on the Republican Party but centered his remarks on Joe McCarthy in recognition of the fact that McCarthy is the strong man of the Eisenhower administration. The Wisconsin senator immediately announced that he would demand equal time on radio and television in which to answer the Illinois wise­cracking left-winger. Soon after, the president let it be known that Vice President Richard Nixon had been selected by him to make the answer. In his characteristic and forthright manner, Senator McCarthy said of this selection, even as he referred to Nixon as an excellent choice to speak for the party: • "I am delegating no one the au­thority to defend me. M1·. Nixon is speaking for the party. I'm speaking for myself." Not every good American likes Senator McCarthy, incredible as it seems, but there are few who do not applaud courage or admire a man who refuses to wilt at the first sign of opposition, or make concession for political expediency. How Wisconsin Citizens Feel About McCarthy Although he is under constant at­tack by Communist sympathizers and the recipient of insults from weak­lings in the national administration, we believe that the sentiment of the people of Wisconsin who elect Mc­Carthy is forcefully expressed by a Chippewa Falls voter, S. J. Pawelko who said in the Chicago Tribune: "-For the benefit of those who have grown soft, Sen. McCarthy rep­resents those of us in Wisconsin who have not grown soft, parVcularly in the head. He lawfully represents the majority of the people of Wisconsin. "If he is fed up with soft headed administrations it is because we are. If he is fed up with soft headed gen­erals, it is because we are. We are mindful of the fact that it was a soft headed general who retreated before the Communists in Germany, upon receiving orders from a soft headed administration, and never made known to the American people the tragedy of that retreat. We are also mindful of the fact that it was a soft headed general who gave China to the Communists, thereby creating an enemy that our sons had to fight in Korea. "Those of us who had to send our sons to rectify mistakes of bone­heads are fed up with them." Magic Reinsurance (From the Insurance Record, Dallas, Texas.) Ever since the President's message about public health and health in­surance, we have been thinking about the grandiloquent way in which the term j'reinsurance" was bandied about in the same, and how it served as a soporific to most conservative of the news analysts, even including that stalwart, Fulton Lewis, Jr. Yes sir, the answer to our public health insurance underwriting has been found. We'll reinsure the busi­ness in a government corporation. That will do the trick. The magic in­fluence of reinsurance will dissipate the helter-skelter underwriting of the companies, and the aged and infirm, the decrepit, the lazy, the no-accounts, the bums and the malingerers will have all of their health problems taken care of through the magic beneficence of federal reinsurance. Now isn't Jife wonderful? Who's been hiding these amazing benefits of reinsurance all of these years'! Now we know that Lloyds of London, which constitutes the greatest rein­surance market in the world, is com­posed of just a bunch of old fogies who sit in little stalls and wait to pounce on juicy tidbits of business brought to thCm by scheming brok­ers. Now we know that when they raised their rates on Texas wind­storm experience a few years ago that they forgot to wave the magic wand and were just a bunch of old meanies for asking the line to carry itself. Now we know that the American reinsurance companies have been holding out on lhe insurance business and have been just a bunch of old. slave drivers for insisting !hat their customer companies use due regard for rate and hazard before they re­ceive the benefit of treaty or l)order­eaux. Somebody must have snitched in the ears of sweet little Oveta, no less, because it is her department that passed on the secret to the President. Come on, you reinsurance boys, get hep. Step to the federal tune. Let munificence rule the day. Rush down to Washington and learn the secret and on your way down, stop off in Philadelphia, the home of Poor Rich­ard, and have your collective heads examined. The United Nations Flag Code and Regulations says in Section 2: "The Flag of the United Nations shall not be subjected to any in­dignity." We do not know what they call indignity but if we should· ever get our hands on one, we would heave it as far as possible and if it fell in the middle of a mud puddle, that would be just dandy ~ith us. From a subscriber in Memphis, Tennessee: "Your article 'Experts in United Nations Invade the Ma­ternity Ward' is priceless. I don't know when I have had such a hearty laugh and every word of it is so very true. Let me congratu­late you on your splendid paper and the wonderful work you are doing." Under our so-called Social Security program, the government must first take the money away from the people and then give them back only part of it. Under such cockeyed reasoning, we wonder who is m-.king who se­cure? Page I Dulles Switches Position On Danger From Treaties In April, 1952, John Foster Dulles made a strong and eloquent plea 1or the passage of the Bricker amendment which was to come later, when he said: "Treaties make international law and also they make domestic law. Under our Constitution, treaties be­come the supreme law of the land. They are indeed more supreme than ordinary laws, tor congressional laws are invalid if they do not conform to the Constitution, whereas treaty laws can override the Constitution. Treat­ies, for example, can take powers from the Congress and give them to the President; they can take powers from the state and give them to the Federal Government or to some in­ternational body, and they can cut across the rights given the people by the constitutional Bill of Rights." Secretary Dulles has since changed his mind but the danger he pointed out in 1952 is still with us and when he sought to prevent the passage <~ the Bricker Amendment In the pres- 1..._. ent Congress, its members should have said to him: "We heard you the first time." Occupants of The Squirrel Cage Go Round and Round Fair Dealers in Congress, under the leadership of the perennial dema­gogue, Sam Rayburn of Texas, are yelling their heads off for tax reduc· tion. For twenty years these renegade Democrats had the chance to reduce taxes and ail they did was to in­crease the levies to the point where it constituted legal extortion and con­fiscation of property. Any way, we now have the cozy little situation wherein Republicans who promised us tax reduction are opposing it, and Fair Dealers who were defeated partly because of ex­orbitant tax policies, are criticising Republicans for keeping our taxes high. Ain't politics grand? From a Tennessee cotton man: "I have perfectly good grounds for a lawsuit against you for mental plagiarism or theft of my ideas. In your February edition you say things I've been thinking for a long time but hadn't had either the guts or the intelligence to express. After reading 41Experts in United Nations Invade the Maternity Ward" I decided I just must have your paper regularly. I am partic­ularly interested in that subject but I found, on reading the whole paper, that every one of your edi­torials are as true as gospel." Senator Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas found himself a nice, soft straddling position on the matter of the Bricker amendment. He voted against the original amend­ment offered by the Ohio senator and which is the one the majority of the American people wanted. He voted for the George amend­ment, an emasculated and innoc­uous version of the original. In ..., the campaign for re-election this summer, he will be able to talk to his constituents out of both sides of his mouth. Page 6 THE S O UTHERN C O NSERVATIVE March, 1954 The "New Look" Means Government By Foreign Treaties Instead of Government By The American Constitution Br Former Senator Robert A. Stuart Fort Worth, Texas Men who live above the fog in private thinking and public duty stand today upon the summits and view with conscious concern the ad­vent o! the New Look, restless with uncertainties yet holding in its hand the bludgeon of the iconoclast. They behold its objective as the destruction ot our sacred belie! in constitutional aovernmcnt. Secretary Dulles outlines the New Look in that it derives its power from the Atlantic Charter, the Yalta Agree­ment, the Charter of the UN and from treaties and executive agree ments heretofore made and hereafter to be made; a new government by treaties rather than by the constitu­tion The Democrats were ousted in No­vember, 1952, largely because of Dean Acheson. Acheson was a statesman compared to Dulles. He, at least, was consistent. He did not tell us one thing today and reverse himself the following day as did Secretary Dulles in his two statements as to treaty laws. one of which was the antithesis ot the other. In his recent statement regarding the power of the President under the constitution to declare war he shows a total disregard for the truth when it serves his end to de­part tlK"refrom. Roosevelt, in one of his fireside chats, as President, sent up a trial balloon by stating that the Bill of Rights could be Jmproved upon. His statement shocked the American peo­ple and Roosevelt never mentioned 'it again but he continued to use his or­rices to the end that our Bill ot Rights might be destroyed. Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, while she was head of the Human Rights Commis­sion. senl up another trial balloon when she suggested that our consti­tution was an Eighteenth Century document and is now outmoded. She was more successful than the Presi­dent in that her theory has been incorporated in the proposed Cov­enant on Human Rights. But not until the birth of the New Look did anyone dare to boldly advo­cate the scrapping o! our constitution and accepting in its stead a world govemment charter based upon in­ternational treaties. We endured 13 years of the New Deal and 7 years of the Fair Deal, both of which were condt.'mned as utter failures by the electorate of America when they elect­ed Ike. The American people hoped and believed, in so doing, we were getting a change. But instead we now have the New Look which goes the New Deal and the Fair Deal one better. It proposes to wrap and deliver the package the New Deal manuractured and the Fair Deal put on the counter. President Eisenhower says he does not propose to let communism drib­ble us to death. Yet he has already made 3§ executive agreements with foreign nations as points from which the USSR can dribble us into bank­ruptcy_ The USSR has adopted the Cassius theory in Julius Caesar· '''Tis better that the enemy seek us. So shall he waste his means, weary his soldiers. doing himself of­le- nsc, whilst we, lying still, are full of rest. defense and nimbleness." More than 10,000 executive agree­ments have been made by President Truman and President Eisenhower since the ratilication of the charter of the UN. These executive agree­ments commit the United States to furnish supplies, equipment and our sons and daughters to dt:fend th('se foreign nations against attack. So numerous have been these agree­uwnls that only the underlings of the State Department could possibly have read them. This is the New Look. Edward Bulwar-Lytton said: "The pen is mightier than the sword." By this he meant that reason is more powerful than force. Under the New Look, Bulwar-Lytton's thought has taken on a new meaning. The pen that signs executive agreements has become a pen o! power to replace the pen of reason. The pen of Truman that signed the executive agreement declaring war in Korea, in violation of our constitution, condemned to death or destruction more than 134,- 000 of our American boys. That pen was more destructive than a million swords in the hands of our enemy. What does the New Look entail? It entails divorcing our armed forces from the control of Congress, as au­thorized by the constitution, and wed­ding them to the Military Staff Com­mittee of the"l.Jnited Nations. It en­tails the subrogation of our Supreme Court to the International Court of Justice of the UN, from whose deci­sions there is no appeal. It entails the placing of our social, economic and political affairs under the control of some agency of the UN, as provided by its charter, such as the Human Rights Commission, UNESCO, FAO, WHO, ILO and numerous other agencies of the UN. It entails the destruction of the constitution of the United States affecting our foreign relations and the destruction of our Bill of Rights that protects every American citizen. I am glad that the New Look has emerged from its cocoon so that the conservatives of both major p arties can train their gu ns on the common enemy. It is hard to shoot a rattle­snake in the dark. Under the blessings of our consti­tution the United States stands today as the most prosperous nation in the World. As Brutus said, in Julius Caesar: "We, c..t the height, are ready to decline. There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune--omitted, all the voyage of their lives is bound in shallows and miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat and we must take the current when it serves or lose our venture." Our constitution is the only su­preme law of any nation ot the world that is based upon belief in God. It has served us well. We are now at the height but, under the New Look, we are booked for decline. There is only one question for the American people to answer. Shall we trade the blessings of our sov­ereignty under God for a wodd gov­ernment of tnen? We have only to re-examine our constitution, which was inspired by the Declaration of Independence, and compare it with the charter of the UN to convince ourselves as to which of the two is more de~rable. The time has arrived when every Ameri­can should examine his hole card. He will find that his only hole card is the constitution of the United States. I wish that we could all place side by side the provisions of our con­stitution and the provisions of the new world charter and examine them all, one by one. In so doing we would want to grind beneath our heels the ugly head of the New Look so that it might never rise again. The following excerpts are sub­mitted as a comparison between our supreme law and the UN: From our Declaration of Independ4 ence: "We hold these truths to be sell­evident: that all men are endowed by their Creator with certain un. alienable rights; among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of hap­piness.'' In conclusion it states: "With a firm reliance on Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor." Neither the charter of the UN nor any of its subdivisions make any reference to Deity. God is excluded therefrom A combination of nations, some of whom do not believe in Deity. is doomed to failure before it begins. The Preamble of our Constitution is divided into six major parts: 1. "To form a more perfect union." 2. "To establish justice." 3. "To insure domestic tranquility." 4. "To provide for the comrr.on de• fense." 5. "To promote the general wel­fare." 6. "To secure the blessings of lib­erty to ourselves and our posterity." The Charter of the UN and its sub­sidiaries provide: 1. "To establish conditions under which justice and respect for the ob­ligations of treaties and other sources of international law can be main­tained." 2. "To promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedoms." 3. "To insure that armed forces shall not be used save in the com­mon interest." 4. "To employ international ma­chinery for the economic and social advancement of all people." As to the two most sacred par ts ot our Constitution, other than our Bill of Rights, the most important are to establish justice and to provide for the common defense. Let's compare the Constitution and the Charter as to these important functions· Section 2 of Article III of our Con­stitution provides· ''The judicial power shall extend to all cases in law and equity aris­ing under this Constitution and laws of the United States," "To treaties made and which shall be made under their authority," "To controversies to which the United States shall be a party." It provides that: ';Trial of all criminal cases (except cases of impeachment) shall be by jury" and Amendment VII provides that: "In suits at common law, where the value in controversy exceeds $20.00, the right o! trial by jury shall be p •·eserved." Article VI provides: ''This Constitution and the laws of the United Stales which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law o! the land." These guarantees that our Courts shaH interpret the law are nullified by the following provisions of the Charter of the UN: Chapter XIV, Article 92: ''The International Court of Jus­tice shall be the principal judicial organ or the United Nations. It shall function in accordance with the an­nexed Statute." The Statute provides for a group of 15 Judges, no two of whow shall be from the same member nation. The Statute provides specifi,cally, in Article 36: "The jurisdiction of the Court comprises all cases which the parties; refer to it and all matters specially provided for in the charter of the United Nations or in treaties and con­ventions in force," and ';ipso facto and without spec i a 1 agreement, in relation to any other state accept-ing the same obligation, the jurisdic­tion of the Court in all legal disputes concerning: a. the interpretation of a treaty; b. any question of internatlional law; c. the existence of any fact which, if established, would constitute a breach of an international obliga­tion;" and it further provides, Sec­tion 6· "In the event of a dispute as to whether the Court has jurisdiction, that matter shall be settled by the decision of the Court.'' Article 46 ptovides that the Court may decide that its hearings may be in secret, thus reinstating the Star Chamber proceedings abolished in England more than 400 years ago. Article 60 provides: ';The judgment is final and with­out appeal." The right of trial by jury is de­n ied in the Courts of the UN. The guaranteed protections under the Bill of Rights appear nowhere as to trials in the International Court of Justice or trials in the International Criminal Court. The rights and duties under the Constitution. to declare war and to control and support our armed forces is more carefully limited than any other portion ol our Constitution. Under our Constitution the right to declare war and to govern our armed forces is a power vested ex­clusively in the people through their representatives, the Congress of the United States. Article I, Section 8 provides: "The Congress shall have power to declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal and make rules concern­ing captures on land and water; ';To raise and support armies; "'To provide and maintain a Navy; "To make rules for the govern-ment and regulation of the land and naval forces; "To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the Union , suppress insurrections and repel invasions." All the functions as to our armed forces, provided for under our Con~ stitution and vested in Congress, have been completely taken over by the following provisions 1 of the UN Charter: The Preamble of the charter pro vides: "Armed forces shall not be used save in the common interest" and Chapter I, Article 2, Section 4 of the charter provides: "All members shall refrain in their international relationship from the threat or use of force against the ter~ ritorial integrity or political inde· pendence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Pur .. poses of the United Nations.'' Section 5 provides: "AU members shall give the United Nations every assistance in any action it takes in accordance with the present chal'ter, and shall refrain from giving assistance to any state against which the United Nations is taking preventive or enforcement ac­tion." pr;~i~~~~r VII, Article 43, Section 1 "All members of the United Na­tions, in order to contribute to the maintenance of international peace and security, undertake to make ~vailable to the Security Council, on tts call and in accordance with a special agreement or agreements, armed forces, assistance, and facili~ ties, including rights of passage, nec­( Continued on Page Seven) ~ is l·e­i' ·- March, 195-4 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Presidents Come and Go L h y A I Th Principles Are Eternal OWering t e Oting ge 5 e A non-subscriber in Minneapolis M t s •d p · I D writes: "You didn't like the two OS tupl roposa to ate preceding presidents and you don't like the present one.

The Southern Conservative has always, and will continue, to pro­test against a Socialist government in Washington regardless of whether it is administered by Fair Dealers or Republicans. We couldn't care less who is president or which party is in power so long as the fundamental faith of the Republic is upheld. We said in the first edition- of the Southern Conservative in 1950 that both major parties were shot through with Socialism and we have had no occasion to retract this statement . Fundamentally, our position is the same as always and that is that the people can restore Constitu­tional government in this country through their duly elected repre­sentatives in Congress when they really realize where we are drift­ing and put the pressure on hard enough. It is Congress which must ap­prove our national policies, for· mulate tax legislation which can either preserve or bankrupt the nation and either vote or with­hold appropriations which may be for or against the public interest. Un_der our form of government the fmal decision is theirs and by the same token the responsibility for the tragic State of the Union rests with them.

Article 47 provides for the estab­lishment of the Military Staff Com­tnittee and Section 3 thereof provides: "The Military Sta!.f Committee shall be responsible under the Se­curity Council for the strategic direc­tion of any armed forces placed at the disposal of the Security Council." So completely have the powers of Congress as to our armed forces been taken over by the UN that at the Present time the Chairman of the Military Staff Committee is a Russian General and during all of the Korean War, which witnessed the most atroc­ious crimes ever committed in the history of civilization, a Russian, Arkady A. Sobolev, was the Minister of War, Information and Communica­tions of the UN Army and, as such, Was bound to have known of the 'death marches and the massacres be­fore they occurred. Secretary of the Navy Anderson said in an address at Waco, Texas, recen!ly that the American citizen is losing more and more of his rights. He urged that these rights should be reclaimed "just as soon as the con­ditions that caused their transfer have been relieved." We agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Anderson that the rights of the Amer­ican citizens have been lost but we do not concede that there was ever any occasion or excuse for them to lose their rights in the first place and we think they should get them back without waiting on anything. After all, the rights enjoyed by American citizens are inherent in our form of government and they never would have been surrendered except under heavy pressure by two Social­ist- minded presidents, who used this pretext to build up power for the Chief Executive which was never granted him under the Constitution. Vice President Richard Nixon did a very creditable job of an­swering Adlai Stevenson's attack on the administration but those who did not hear it and depended on slanted reports from the press services for their information, would get the impression that it was entirely devoted to a denunci­ation of Senator McCarthy. All of which bears out Fulton Lewis' charge that Fair Deal individuals and agencies are doing their best to widen the breach in the Repub­lican Party. with basic American principles is desirable, but not necessary, in reclaiming the country from Na­tional Socialism. Congress is the medium through which un-Amer­ican policies are put into effect, and without its approval and sup­port, they must remain inopera­tive. The other four major !unctions of our Constitution have been surrender­ed and delegated to the various creatures and sub-divisions of the United Nations such as the Human Rights Commission, the ILO, the Genocide Convention, UNESCO, FAO, WHO and numerous other alphabeti­cal sub-divisions. These rights have been and are to be surrendered by executive agreements and/or by more than 200 treaties that have been pro­posed by these agencies of the UN. From the above provisions of the UN we find that the Charter of the UN has completely overridden the Constitution of the United States. The only thing left in the destruction of American sove!"eignty is to provide, by amendment to the Charter of the UN in 1955, the enforcement machin­ery to complete the job. Already, the Foreign Relation !!I Committee of the Senate has decreed: "In order that there may be no doubt about the availability of our armed forces, the Committee believ~s it wise that the Congress should m this legislation confirm its view that the President has the power and the obligation, in compliance with our undertaking under the Charter (of the UN), to make the forces provided in the agreements available to the Se­curity Council". And, to the further end that a With our pressing need of all possible stable influences to get the country back on a basis of san­ity, the proposal to let eighteen­year- aids vote is the ultimate in stupidity. Wouldn't it be something to see young boys and girls of eighteen, who are right in the big middle of the infiltration process by pink professors, turned -loose with a bal­lot in their hand, all set to put their Socialistic theories to test? In spite of disilJusioning exam­ples throughout the past twenty years, we believe the American people are too smart to fall for any such foolhardy experiment as this. After a sobering contact with realities when they are forced to make a living and struggle with an income tax form most of these young people will throw off the subversive influence which sur­rounded them through high school and college and will be converted into good citizens. It will then be time enough for them to express their opinion at the polls. In the meantime if we just simply have to tamper with the election machinery and revise the voting age let's raise it to twenty­five instead of lowering it to eighteen. Those who deny that our com­munications system in this country are controlled by a powerful in­visible force are invited to explain this: Two of the big radio net­works, in shaping their 1954 pol­icy, allotted free time to the Na­tional Council of Churches of Christ which is on record against the American Free Enterprise sys­tem and which advocates policies laid down by the Communist Party but denied similar time to Protestant groups holding direct­ly opposite views from those of the National Council. world government may be complete and effective, a Committee of eight internationalist Senators has been ap­pointed, not one of whom voted for the Bricker Amendment, to represent the United States in amending the Charter of the UN so that the views of the Committee on Foreign Rela­tions can be inculcated into the Charter that will form an effective world government. All these are the things that the New Look entails. The deceptive New Look brooks no opposition. Witness the gag rule ap­plied to that great constitutional lawyer, Dean Clarence Manion. May God permit him to continue his efforts in upholding our unalienable rights. The deceptive New Look is now trying to destroy Senator McCarthy. May God forbid! Television and radio are great sources of information, but when used for evil rather than good, as witness their free time given in pro­moting world government while en­deavoring to put Facts Forum off the air, it is better had they not been in­vented. "Upon what meat doth this our Caesar feed that he is grown so great"? The New Look has grown fat from too much flattery from the "gimme" nations of the world. It is Page 7 Stamp Commemorates Birthday of Noted Communist Fronter Fancy three-colored stamps com­memorating the seventy-fifth birthday of Albert Einstein have been issued by the "Council Against Intolerance" in New York. These stamps depict Einstein as a "Friend of all Mankind." According to two official investi­gating committees, the things that Einstein is most tolerant of our Communist Fronts. The House Committee on Un-Amer­ican Activities lists him as belonging to not less than sixteen Communist Fronts and the Second Report or the Washington State Committee on Un­American Activities, published In 1948, gives a list of thirty Communist Fronts in which he has held member­ship. The Council states that it has fur­nished without cost 1,250,000 ''maps, manuals, films, exhibits and record­ings" to American public school teachers. Among the Council's members, acM cording to its literature, are Carey • McWilliams, with forty-one Commu­nist Front citations and Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam, with eleven. Mr. E. G. Risien of San Saba, Texas, an earnest student of gov­ernment, is much perturbed about the several hundred thousand Arabs who were displaced and made homeless through the deci­sion of the Negro mediator Ralphe Bunche, in the Palestine matter. "With the prestige and might of the United Nations and the United States behind Bunche, what else could the poor Arabs do but swal­low the bitter pill and give up part of their country/' lJr. Risien inquires. One of the greatest set-backs to responsible journalism in the United States occurred recently when the Washington Post, often designated as the Washington edi­tion of the Daily Worker. pur­chased the Washington Time­Herald. drunk with power conferred upon it by the Charter of the UN, which makes them masters rather than serv­ants of the people. It is high time to puncture their ego by applying the constitutional rule that they hoI d powers only by the consent of the governed. Shall we, like dumb ani­mals, stand idly by until we are but slaves? Let us don the armor of the Amendment to the Sixteenth Amend­ment of our Constitution, which lacks only three votes of ratification. Let us adopt the 23rd Amendment so that the government will cease to compete in business with private enterprise. Above all, let us pass and gird our­selves with the Bricker Amendment so that our American way of life cannot be destroyed by the one­worlders. Our greatest American sin Is in­difference. Tennyson said: "Oft I fall ... in such blind lethargies That Heaven, and Earth and Time are choked" Let us shout from every housetop: Wake up America! Stir thy lethar­gy. The road to World Government and the destruction of our sovereign­ty begins. Arouse ye, go forth and expiate thy sins. Pago 8 Heaven Protect Us From the Experts The intellectuals are at it again. This time they propose to overhaul the machinery of State Legislatures streamline local government and jazz up law-making procedures generally, in the various commonwealths of the Union. In a 294-page book put out by a 12-member study committee of the American Political Science Associa­tion, the experts indicate that they don't like "old-fashioned, time-con­suming legislative procedures" now prevailing in the various States and they propose to correct the situation. The committee is composed ol po­litical science professors and legisla­tive experts and the fact that none of them has ever had any experience as a lawmaker is beside the point. They propose to run the job from the sidelines like a football coach. One of their chief complaints is that current State legislatures are dominated by representatives from rural districts which, in the opinion of the experts, makes it impossible for proper consideration to be given to such vital subjects as "public hous­ing, metropolitan bus fares, price control on foods, social insurance and community planning." Strong emphasis is placed on the need of a commission in each state to restrain "special interests" from seeking favors of the legislature, but it is obvious that this does not apply to labor unions and minority groups and is aimed strictly at the guys who stgn the payroll each week. The side~splitter among their sug­gestions is a proposal that "training program.s for new members" be set up where legislators will be turned out with uniform precision like auto­mob11e parts. More and more we are becoming in favor of a law declaring experts a public nuisance and providing an open season on them during which time they may be shot on sight. One for the Believe It or not Column Henry Cabot Lodge, speaking for the United Nations said in an inter­view to the press recently: "We are not trying to make treaties to bring about internal reform. There is noth­ing in the United Nations charter that justifies apprehension that oyr liberties will be impaired." Lodge also dismissed as inconse­quential attempts in American courts to use the United Nations Charter and United Nations covenants to up~ set domestic law. The natural reaction of any in­formed American to this astounding assertion is that either he or Lodge is nuts. On page 247 o! the Fourth Report o! Un-American Activities in Califor­nia, Communist Front Organizations, Kirby Page is listed as a director of the Garland Fund which later came to be known as the American Fund for Public Service. Serving with Page u a director of this Fund was Wil­liam z. Foster, head of the Communist Party of the United States and a &;core of others with long records as Communists or members of Commu­nist Front organizations. Kirby Page's books are now being plugged in some American churches. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE March, 1954 If the Republic Is to Be Saved Something Is Wrong It Looks Like Women Must Do It With This Picture . At one time or another, most of us have. to eat our words and that is just exactly what we are preparing to do. Up until the past three or four years, it was our secret convic­tion, publicly expressed, that the granting of the ballot to women had merely doubled the vote and produced worse results than all­male su!frage had managed to achieve. In defense of our position, this was true for the first three de­cades of woman suffrage and espe­cially during the New Deal and Fair Deal when a majority of women voters swallowed Roose­velt's and Truman's Socialist bait, hook, line and sinker. They not only did not Hclean house'' as suffrage leaders had promised but they further messed up the joint so thoroughly as to make it practically unfit for hu­man habitation. Beginning in the early thirties. the political arena was invaded by hordes of frantic, frustrated fe­males who had about as much un­derstanding of the fundamental principles of the Republic as a cow has of higher mathematics and who had never used their heads for anything except to prop their ears apart. Under the joint leadership of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt who were determined to convert the Federal government into a vast social and paternal agency for the support of the weak and indolent at the expense of the thrifty and strong. women pitched in and did their bit toward piling up a staggering national debt, tramplin,~:Con the Constitution. and contributing generally to deliber­ate attempts to wreck the Ameri­can government. In the past three or four years, however, a new and responsible type of womanhood has stepped forward with a firm determination to retrieve feminine leadership from their bumbling, fumbling and addle-brained sisters and to exert their organized influence in restoring orderly government in the United States. We have reference to the N a­tiona] Association of Pro America and the Minute Women of Amer­ica. and their local branches in various states with whose won­derful work we happen to be fa- It was with deep regret that we were compelled to decline the invita­tion to the Washington Day dinner o! the American Good Government So~ ciety in the nation's capital on Feb­ruary 22, as we have a very great admiration for that organization, its purposes and its officials. We are very proud of the fact that in the list of all the subversives and outright Communists appearing be­fore the various investigating com­mittees in Washington, very few, if any, names of Irishmen appear. This is also true in the case of gangsters in the underworld. Hurrah for the sons and daughters of the Emerald Isle. miliar from having observed them in action, although we are a mem­ber of neither. There are scores of other or­ganizations and individual women throughout the nation rendering similar service to their country in its present hour of peril but the membership of these two particu­lar groups serves to point up the new order of high-class, level­headed and informed women who are making a definite impact on national politics. And any smug politician who engages them in a political argu­ment or takes issue with them on the fundamentals of government, either individually or collectively, had better know his subject from the ground up or he may find himself neatly tripped on his own ignorance. For these women didn't rush pell-mell into these two organi­zations with some half-baked and crackpot social theories to test, but deliberately took membership in them in order to seriously study the provisions of the American Constitution and the responsibili­ties and limitations it imposes on the Federal government. We have never known them to concern themselves with the petty, vote-getting social and eco­nomic schemes to which our Washington leaders devote the major portion of their time and effort, but they are fighting like demons for the protection of our national sovereignty and the pres­ervation of the American Re­public. It is almost universally conced­ed that it was the combined wrath and determination of the better class of American mothers. wives and daughters which inspired the overwhelming vote for a "change" at the last national election and, although the change is not clear­ly discernible as yet, this unified action of thoughtful American women established them as a pow­erful factor to be reckoned with by wily politicians seeking lead­ership in future. And so, in atonement for our assertions that women would never assume full stature in the field of politics and in tribute to these groups who have shown us our mistake, we now proceed to make a full meal of a dish of crow and to partake of a large wedge of humble pie for dessert. It is an ill wind that blows nobody good. During the unfortunate shoot­ing of five Congressmen in Washing­ton recently, a Congresswoman from New York, Edna F. Kelly, changed her mind on a matter of policy. Formerly favoring the admission of Hawaii and Alaska as States of the Union, Miss Kelly said as she got up from the floor following the attack by Puerla Ricans: "This is a tough break for Hawaii and Alaska but I'm going to switch my stand. No state­hood for non~Americans. From now on I'm against it." Good for her. "History and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican govern­ment."- George Washington. Mrs. Oswald Lord, United States member oC the Human Rights Com­mission of the United Nations, intro~ duced a resolution in that body re­cently to this e!fecl: "Every one has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others. No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property." After several hours' tussle with the subject, it was voted overwhelm~ ingly to post'pone consideration of the matter until a later date. This action occasioned no surprise as the group has always wrangled for days at a time over this matter but they have never been able to agree that a human being has a right to any earthly possessions. What was surprising, however, was the :(act that a United States delegate should have taken any part in a session of the Commission since President Eisenhower gave his word of honor to the Senate that he would never submit this Human Rights Covenant to them for approval. II he meant what he said, what is the point in United States repre­sentatives attending the sessions and introducing resolutions? City Councils Are Just That and Nothing More Usurpation of power begins at the top levels of government and seeps down until it permeates all sub~di­visions or state and local governing bodies. We are reminded o( this by the i~ crea~ing tendency of City Councils to take on themselves authority which does not belong to them. In many cities, for instance, plans are being laid to fluoridate the mu­nicipal water supply because some propaganda group somewhere decided that such procedure would prevent tooth decay in children. Authorities diCier very materially on this point but a few dentists have read some­where that this was true and the)~ have joined in the chorus demanding mass medication by city authorities. Even if all medical scientists were agreed that putting this chemical in the water supply is beneficial, it would still be outside the province of city councils to order it done. They are elected for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to transact the orderly business and finances of the city where they live and nowhere are they given authority to prescribe remedies for the ailments of the taxpayers. That is the exclusive prerogative o! medical authorities. We wonder i! there is some special rule governing appointments as so­licitor general. Under Truman, Philip Perlman held this office. Now tha president has appointed a Simon Sobeloff, who, we understand, was born in Russia or is of Russian par­entage. Both Perlman and Sobeloff are violent opponents o! segregation~ and Sobelof! is a member of the no .. torious Urban League. When you, yourselves, have your necks so low that the Presi .. dent may dispose of your rights as he pleases, the law of Nations cannot be applied to relieve you.­Patrick Henry.
