J THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE~ -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- / Yol. 9 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, MAY, 1958 No.5 FEDERAL TAX RACKET IS WORST FORMI OF ORGANIZED VICE IN HUMAN HISTORY In Case of Atomic Bomb Attack Fill Out A Form Says State Department Like all normal Americans, we have often contemplated with horror an attack by an atomic bomb and wondered what on earth one could do in such an event. We still don't know what would happen to us as a non-government employee but if we worked for the State Department. we would know exactly what to do. We would make a bee·line for the postoffice and fill out a' blank form. After we had done this, the postmaster-provided he had not been reduced to a greasy spot on the postoffice floor-would forward this form to the Civil Service Commssion in Washington which would, in turn, notify the State Department which would thus be able to forward our next pay check to us presumably either at our old address or to a new one in Glory. '---~IIT1';7m!"1iiii< tegulatfons on what to do Jn case of atomic attack you are on the State Department payroll, have been compiled and issued by the bright boys in Mr. Dulles' De· and we thank the Orlando, Florida, Sentinel for publishing some of them thereby tipping us off to make application at once, in the Interest of safety, for a job in the State Department. • • After all, what a horrible catastrophe for that negligible number of Americans who are not on the government payroll but who would still like to keep on living, to be bashed In the bean by an atomic bo!"b and then be denied the privilege of running to the postoff1ce and f1llmg out a form for their next paycheck. Anyway, there's hope and encouragement in the situation. For instance, we always had the vague idea th~t when, and if, .we got conked by one of Mr. Krushchev's nuclear pmeal?ples, everythmg was automatically taken care of and there was nothmg further to worry about. But if the State Department is right and we will still be around to run to the postoffice, fill out a form and hustle up our next I?ay check, maybe a bomb from out of the blue is no worse than gettmg .,mosquito-bit," or nicked on the ear by a pet panther. THIS IS ONE FOR THE BIRDS According to a newspaper c'olumnisr, Chief Justice Earl Warren has asked Congress for $33,000 in order to have the Supreme Court building "bird-proofed." The Chief Justice complained that starlings, crows. English spar· rows and owls roost in the dome of the Court building and disturb the deliberations of the eminent jurists. The Court seems to have done all right by the Communists they have sprung and the Negro rapists they have saved from the hot seat and we hate to think what some of their rulings might have been if the chirpings of the birds hadn't disturbed their "deliberations." It is our earnest hope that if Congress takes any action at all in the matter, they make the Supreme Court "Communist-proof" rather than "bird-proof." After all, any damage which might accrue as a result of these dirty birds roosting over the heads of the Justices would be classified as a minor disaster at most, but when the shadow of Gunnar Myrdal perches on the Bench and dictates the Court's rulings, the safety and security of the Republic is endangered and the whole structure of Constitutional Government placed in jeopardy. The Attorney General of the United States has announc· ' ed through the press that his office will soon make a vigorous crackdown on underworld gangsters who an­nually plunder their victims of hundreds of millions of dollars. This noble gesture toward the suppression of criminal activity is highly commendable and has the hearty approbation of all law-abiding Americans. But the worst racket of all is one about which the Attorney General can do nothing even If he were so inclined. The yearly "take" of Washington politicians as a result of their shakedown of the nation's taxpayers is far greater than the total proceeds from prostitution, gambling, bootlegging and all other gangland rackets combined. Larceny by taxation is as much a criminal act as ex .. tortion by threat and when a citizen is robbed of his money, it doesn't make much diHerence whether the thief Is an underworld thug or the Ways and Means Com­mittee of Congress. When the wise and far·sighted founders of the American Republfc framed the Constitution, uppermost in their minds was a firm determina· tion to protect the people of the United States from greedy and power· mad leaders of the future who might attempt to seize and hold excessive authority through the medium of the nation's taxing system . They labored long and earnestly to write a document which would insure that tax levies would be laid only to raise revenue for paying the legitimate expenses of orderly and authorized activities of the Fed· eral government. To this end they wrote a specific provision in the Constitution that no direct (income) tax should ever be levied against the citizens of the United States. There was no place in their deliberations, nor sympathy in their hearts. for a tax system which provided money to reward the poor, punish the rich, compensate the unemployed, pay the farmer not to plow, underwrite the living expenses of the indigent or to donate billions of dollars for the upkeep of the governments and fighting forces of alien countries . Under the original plan of the American government when the Constitution prohibited the levying of an income tax, p'roperty was more secure in the American Republic than in any other country on the globe; the torchlight of human liberty burned brighter here than anywhere else on earth and the influence, greatness and glory of the United States was acclaimed throughout the world. When the first faint stirrings of International Socialism were re· fleeted in the American Congress soon after the turn of the century, the result was the passage of the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitu4 tion to permit the levying of a direct tax in OR_POSition to the will of early American patriots who realized that such a move would provide the most vicious instrument of criminal extortion every fashioned by human minds. The passage of this amendment which placed no ceiling on levies and allowed Congress unbridled license in setting tax rates justified the dire apprehension of the founding fathers and eventually foster.ed the greatest orgy of waste, extravagance and unlimited squandering in the history of all mankind. It ushered in an era of bi-partisan corruption in -which members of the two major political parties were to vie with each other in a (Continued on Page 2) Millions of Americans Think It-The Southern Conservative Says It T Pege 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Mey, 1958 Dallas Ministers Perform In Response To Powerful Pressure ~ The violence engendered by the ~~i~!~~u~t~a~~:c~~o~h~~thst~;e~~~ Th~re Is Ho Such Thing _As A and teachers, rapings and the gen- 1· T1me Federal Expend1ture eral state of anarchy prevaili~ in One of the most profound truths many places has definitely slowed ever uttered was the statement of down all further proposals for in- the Honorable John Bell Williams, tegration except in a few instances.

In North Carolina the Republi­can ballot used in primaries has been printed on red paper for years. This year, it will be changed to green. According to a press re­lease from Winston-Salem, local Republican leaders decided that the 1·ed paper suggested Commu· nism to many people, hence the change. If they want our opinion Modern Republicans will have to change the color of some of their policies before that impressi?n will be dissipated. Merely changmg the color of the ballot will not get the job done. In issuing this warning, Con­gressman Williams was opposing "temporary" grants of Federal money for projects which, in the long run, meant Socialized medi· cine. Krushchev himself couldn't have done a better job of defending Communism than two characters did on television on Sunday, May 11. One of them was Linus Paul~ ing associated, among other things, with the California Institute of Technology and the other was William 0. Douglas, the zaniest of the nine judicial freaks on the Supreme Court. Pauling wants aU building and testing of nuclear weapons here stopped even while Russia goes on making and test­ig them~ Douglas wants what he calls a free speech" restored in the United States and from his line it was easy to detect that he wants the right of Reds to advocate the overthrow of the American gov­ernment preserved. In Washington, D. C., according to a repor-t of the FBI, 80.2 per cent of the adults and juveniles arrested last year were colored. This is not surprising since Wash· ington is fast becoming the Negro Capital of the world and there is always a high rate of crime where the colored race predominates. A Washington, D. C., Negro Eu­gene Bailey was sentenced to the electric chair for murder according to an article in the Washington Dnily News. He appealed to the Supreme Court which, strangely enough, turned down his appeal. At that point, President Ei.Senhow~ er stepped in and ~'quietly" com~ nmted his sentence to life impris­onment. Tuition for Each Negro Student Cost Taxpayers Almost Half Million Dollars The Federal troops who were sent to Little Rock at the begin­ning of the school term last year in the most arrogant and despic­able act of usurpation of authority and violation of States Rights in history, are to be pulled out on May 29th according to a press re­lease from Washington. The troops have been pictured with drawn bayonets in the backs of children which was publicized all over the nation and this picture has been adopted by many South­erners as a symbol of infamy and totalitarian control. At the same time the Army re­leased figures showing that it cost the taxpayers of the United States in the neighborhood of $3,693,· 000.00 for the armed forces to re. main in Little Rock to protect nine Negroes during the school term even though the Negro high school in Little Rock is equal in facilities to the White high school. No apology for this ghastly blun­der on the part of the Administra~ tion was offered, nor was there any regret expressed that the taxpayers of the United States had to put up $410,333.33 for each of the nine Negroes whom Mr. Eisenhower in· sisted should attend a white school rather than go to classes in their­own million-dollar b u i I d I n g in Little Rock. The fiasco constitutes one of the blackest pages in history. FEDERAL TAX RACKET (Continued from Pagel) vicious race to see which side could more effectively swindle the Ameri• can people out of their earnings. It. has caused members of Congress who, in their private lives, observe accepted standards of decency and honesty in dealing with their fellowmen, to revert to the level of common thieves and to practically knock themselves out in their mad rush to pick their victims clean. As a result of the depredations Which this Amendment has al· lowed Washington tax-grabbers to make on the American purse, they have forcibly taken from the people in income, gift and inheritance taxes $613,442,033,579.00 which is more than the total cost of running the A~erican ~overnm~n~ for the first hundred years of its existence. (This JS exclus1ve of b1lhons of dollars collected under State income taxes where State officials have followed the national pattern of cor .. ruption and pushed tax levies to the point of confiscation.) In addition, there has been built up within the Federal government a vast net·work of tax spies who swoop down like vultures out of the sky and rummage through the records of honorable and patriotic Ameri· cans who dare to voice opposition to policies designed to overthrow our form of government, while leaving undisturbed the huge Founda~ tions and other extreme Marxist organizations whose sole objective is the conversion of the American Republic into a Socialist State. It was because of the Sixteenth Amendment that the Ways and Means Committee of the House-where all tax legislation is written­was able to put into effect the infamous graduated tax system which Marx and Lenin recommended in the long ago as the surest method of bankrupting a "Capitalist" country that could possibly be devised. Under these vicious graduated levies, American citizens in the higher income brackets are forced to turn over to political confidence men in Washington as much as ninety-one per cent of their earnings, Any lawmaker who will vote to forcibly dispossess an American citizen of ninety-one per cent of his income belongs in the same moral category as a man who holds up a super-market, "heists" a bank or knocks over a filling station. It is just as much a criminal act for a frock·coated politician in Washington to wave an extortionate tax law in the face of the citizen and relieve him of his valuables as it is to stick a six-shooter in his ribs and frisk his bill-fold. For _Years groups of responsible Americans have sought the repeal of the Stxteenth Amendment and the substitution of one which limits the amount of tax which can be levied to a maximum of twenty.five per cent. Equally responsible organizations are working for the outright re .. peal of the ~me~dment with no substitute and legislation to this effect IS now pendmg m Congress. Accurate figures have been made avail· able showing that. income fr?~ this source is not needed provided the reckle~s sc;~uandenng and givmg away of taxpayers' money to alien C<?untnes IS halted and also showing that, under Constitutional pro· cedure, the American government can be adequately supported on revenue from other sources. But the wastrels and spendthrifts in Congress will never voluntarily agree t~ shoot Santa Claus and it's going to be a long fight with a shor~ shck to _beat them away. from this overflowing trough· of cor­rup~ on. It Will probably reqlllre action by two·thirds of the State Legislatures who have the Constitutional power to demand its repeal, to get the job done-, Meantime the Leftists, One-Worlders and International Socialists in both the Republican and Democratic Parties will continue the mad scramb~e. tow~rd national bankruptcy as they indulge in cut-throat competttton wtth each other to rip ·the shirts from the backs of Ameri· can taxpayers. Moy, 1958 Immigration Official Makes Mistake, Deports Communist 'When the San Francisco Division of the Uf1ited States government deported a Finnish Communist back to Helsinki recently, the lid blew oft. A San Francisco federal judge, one Edward P. Murphy, practically wrung his hands and wept when this Communist, William Heikkila was sent back to his native 'land, a task the Immigration Department had been trying to accomplish for ten years. Murphy declared the de­portation "repulsive and abhor­rent," according to an Associated Press release from San Francisco on April 25. As soon as the news reached Washington, the Federal govern­ment went into action and Heik­kila was flown back from Finland immediately at American taxpay­ers' expense. As soon as he reached San Fran~ cisco on his return, Heikkila arro­gantly told newspaper men he had no apologies for what he did while a member of the Communist Party Jn Minnesota during 1930. He avoided questions as to whether he would now denounce the Commu­nist Party. The San Francisco judge ordered the San FrancisCo immigration di­rector to show cause why he should not be held in contempt of court. So far as we can learn, the Hel­sinki hero has not been voted an award by his admirers for his great over bigotry, intolerance ..... ---1!~~~· ~· ~- ~·;!;wMfie th~ ima~;: gration who had the mis­taken idea it was proper to deport a Communist, is languishing in the dog house. From a woman subscriber in New York: «Like many others I think that your humorous manner of writing about the State of the Nation is most effective hut what I love you for is that deadly sar­casm underneath it diTected against the enemies of this coun­try." FTom a new subscriber in Spo­kane, Washington aA good friend of ·mine loaned me a copy of the April edition of the Southern Con­servative. It .. is the most excellent job of presenting the facts to the American people I have read. Keep up your excellent presentation of facts and ridicule., Although efforts have been made to hush them up, ugly racial inci­dents in the integrated Kansas City schools are coming to light, says the Columbus, Georgia, Tri­bune. In some schools there white and Negro pupils were found to be living under gangland rules. Po­licemen in squad cars keep con­stant watch as students arrive and leave schools. At Central Jun­ior High teachers patrol the lava­tori es during class breaks to pre­vent gang attacks of thugs with switchblade knives and razoTs. Another "example to the nation" no doubt! PLEASE NOTE AND REMEM­BER: The cost to American tax­payers for the tuition of nine Little Rock Negro students during the present school term, includ!ng Armed Guard escort sermce, amounts to $410,333.33 per Negro. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVe Not Much Educational Value In A Communist Spokesman's Aqdress On April 23, an event took place in Dallas which, even as it was causing chills of horror to chase up and down the spines of decent Americans, must have been reas­suring to the Kremlin and convinc· ing proof that International Com­munism's plan for conquest of this country has support in high eche­lons of American society. On that occasion, more than three thousands persons, including fifteen huildred students, crowded and shoved their way into McFar­lin auditorium at Southern Meth­odist University to applaud, and pay tribute to Communist John Gates, alias Isadore Regenstreif, former Daily Worker editor, as he contemptuously denounced the American capitalistic system-the same system incidentally which has permitted Southern Methodist University to blossom into one of the richest and most liberally-en­dowed institutions of learning in the South. It is estimated that there were perhaps five hundred persons in the audience who were there to take notes and to get a first-hand reaction of the students to the propaganda of a deep-dyed Com­munist and who probably could not have believed unless they had wit­nessed the spectacle, that young arul w.9m!l.O, enrolled in a so­ca1Ied Christian university have sufficient interest in the Soviet sys­tem that they would give profound consideration to the mouthings of one of its agents. The other twenty­five hundred, including students, in attendance are presumed to have been there because there is still a lingering doubt in their feeble minds as to the superior advan- That grand old man, Syngman Rhee of Sou.th Korea, has offered the anti·Communist rebels of Indo­nesia his Army, Navy and Air Force in thei,. war against the SukaTno Central government. At the same time, he criticized the United States for its behavior to· ward the rebels in Indonesia who, he cLaimed, are "desperately try­ing to save their nation and gov. ernment from Communists." Pres~ ident Rhee should know that we're not refusing to help the rebels because of any national "hands-off" policy, because we mix in the internal affairs of every nation in the world. It 's just that, somehow, we never get around to h e l p in g the anti·Communists. We're always too busy helping the other side, like in Yugoslavia and Poland, to name two. In New York a 36-year-old school teacher, Arthur Santos, was attacked and severely beaten by six Negro teenagers from fifteen to eighteen years old and had to be taken to Fordham Hospital where thirteen stitch~s w·ere taken in his scalp. No reason was given for the assault and it is assumed that the young thugs were merely doing what comes naturally since attacks on white teachers and stu~ dents by colored students in inte­grated schools is becoming a fav~ orite outdoor and indoor sport throughout the nation. tages of American Free Enterprise which has given them the highest standard of living enjoyed by the citizens of any country on earth. If a dedicated American patriot had been scheduled to make the address on that occasion-and the idea is strictly academic because no such American would have been invited to do so-not a tenth of the space in the auditorium would have been filled and the seats would have gone begging. Aside from the speaker's admis· sion that he was an Atheist, his denunciation of Capitalism and his anounced determination to work for a "socialist Democracy" in this country his remarks were unintel· ligible, disjointed and stupid and the questions asked him by a so­called panel were pointless and showed little intent to bring out the real facts about Communism. Altogether the event was a dis~ graceful p e r f o r m a n c e and we should think that officials of SMU would be a long time explaining to benefactors and contributors to the insti tution just how they contrib· uted to high educational standards by bringing in this Communist ex· convict to address young students who are to be the citizens of to- Universities frequent\ -almost JnvariabJy in fact-se ect Jeft. wingers, one-worlders, and Inter· national Socialists to appear before their student body but usually they at least select those who rank as intellectuals in the best subversive circles. It is seldom that they comb the gutter for their lecture material, as they did in the case of Gates. According to the State Depart~ ment there were over 300 " inter­national conferences" held during the last fiscal year by this country with representatives of foreign na­tions. What a tragic waste of time, money and hot air! From a former member of the Texas legislature: "Why in the name of freedom and liberty can't this once great nation have such courageous persons as you in posi­tions of leadership? Unless such leadership does come to the front, this nation is a 'gone gosling'. Hold that Line and God only knows how I admire your intellect and un­daunted courage." The United States is reported to now owe in Federal, State and Mu­nicipal bonds more than the total val1.te of aU lands, houses, moneys and every other form of tangible property in the nation. Would that indicate that the Federal govern· ment is in position to continue to pour out Foreign Aid to any coun­try asking for a hand-out or to supply ''Federal f\id'' to local pro­jects all over this country or does it point up the fact that we are doing just what Lenin said we would-spending ourselves out of existence? Every American should answer this question to his own satisfaction - and then let his Senators and his Congressman have it. Poge 3 The Real Story of Communism Still Remains To Be Told "Masters of Deceit" by the Hon .. orable J. Edgar Hoover which pur• ports to tell the story of Commu .. nist infiltration into American insti .. tutions is being widely reproduced in the nation's newspapers and it is to be hoped that it will help to awaken the American people to the danger which faces them. His discussion , however, is eJe .. mental and relates mainly to small .. fry Communists who are the least dangerous factors in the vast world-wide conspiracy. What we personally want to read is a book presenting the full picture of Inter· national Communism which poses a threat of universal bondage over many nations, including our own. We want to be told about the big·shot Communists in Govern .. ment, in colleges and universities, in the churches, in labor unions, in the movie industry, in our com· munications system, in the press and publishing fields and in power· ful mirlority group organizations. We want the frightening st01y in detail of powerful International Communists who influence think~ ing in the United States and who help shape our economic, social and political policies and who are shoving us toward One-World Government. In other words, we don't care anything about the min­nows- we are interes ted in the whales. Of course no official of the Fed­eral government would dare wr\te the full story of Communism with alJ its connotations and far-reach· ing tentacles. If he did, his book not only would be fihov.,ed under -the counter by those who control the circulation of the nation's read· ing materiai, but he would probab· ly be out of a job before sun·down. The late great Joe McCarthy per· haps came nearer than any other American in exposing Communism in high and powerful places and when he got on dangerous terri· tory, the whole machinery of gov· ernment was unloosed against him and he was hounded to his death. The Reciprocal Trade Agree. ments Act was to last three years or so its sponsor said when it was put into effect. It has been ex~ tended time and time again and has now been in effect twenty· four years. Which shows how· well poli· ticians keep their word. There is no organization in the United States more firmty dedi· cated to sound American principles of government or which does more to promote them than the National Division of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Dag Hammarskjold, Secretary General of the United Nations says that the by-passing of the U.N. in favor of traditional diplomatic channels will finally consign the United Nations to the fate suffered by the League of Nations. Good! Let's keep on by-passing the U. N. then.

If Hot Air Could Be Converted To Cash They'd Be Millionaires There may be something that is more absurd than the spectacle of members of Congress popping off in favor of a five-year extension of the international trade agreements act but, if so, we can't think at the moment what it is. 1 These hot air merchants spout off about how necessary it is to keep the "channels of trade open" and predict dire results to Ameri­can industry if foreign competition, which is ruining such industry, is restricted. I Before they get through ""'Wi'lh their nonsensical outburst, they have convinced themselves that they know more about trade, com­merce and industry and what is best for business than the men who meet the payrolls and sign the sal­ary checks. The bald fact is that the only thing these birds have ever "tra9- ed" is their own vote which doesn't exactly qualify them as experts in the marts of commerce. If they really want to render a service to the nation and American producers, they could do it most effectively by indulging in a lot of eloquent and golden silence con­cerning a subject about which they know less than nothing.

The gist of this new principle of government is that two wrongs make one right. For instance, the Civil Defense Administration, with 1,000 em­ployees and after spending six years and $378,406,000.00 and with a $40,000,000.00 appropriaHon for the current year, has nothing to show for the time and money except a big, round, slick goose egg. It is public1y admitted in Washington that in the event of a nuclear attack, destruction would be practically complete. So the President whose sure-fire solution to irritating problems is "consolidation" has proposed that the Civil Defense Administration be merged with the Office of Defense Mobilization which also has set no world's record for accomplishment, and that the functions of the com­bined bureaus be vested in the Executive Department. Some members of the Senate, however, have other ideas and on April 25, a resolution disapproving the President's proposal was intro­duced in that body by Republican Charle,s E. Potter of Michigan who said in part in support of his action: "The principal effects of the reorganization plan would be to trans­fer to the President the functions vested by law in the Federal Civil Defense Administration and those so vested in the Office of Defense Mobilization and to consolidate them to form a new Office of Defense and Civilian Mobilization in the Executive Office of the President . ..• These agencies should not be supervised by the President of the United States. This is the first time to my knowledge that an operating agency of Government is proposed to be placed under the direct control of the President in peace time ..•. It is my earnest hope ••• that thorough hearings will be held." The Michigan Senator should know, and probably does, that grab­bing for power is an occupational disease with politicians and . that they constantly reach out and try to seize it like a monkey snatching a coconut. When two bungling bureaucratic agencies show ineptitude, waste and inefficiency the common sense answer is not to consolidate them thereby comp6unding extravagance and stupidity, but to abolish them both. The major part of the evil which is prevalent on a mammoth scale in Government could be cured if fifty per cent of the excess, extraneous and parasite·ridden Federal agencies could be totally dismantled and rendered forever inoperative. It Is Futile To Hope For Any Remedial Labor Legislation In spite of all the good work the Senate Labor Rackets Committee did in exposing gangsterism in labor unions-with the eXception of that in Walter Reuther's union which was glossed over-the Amer­Ican people need not expect any remedial legislation by Congress at this session, nor any other session until the stature of that body Is raised. There Is a lot of hullaballoo about different bills being introduced in both Houses on the subject but principally they are designed only to protect labor union rl'rembers from thievery, graft and corruption on the part of the racketeers .. who head the unions. There is little or no chance that any bill will be passed which protects the general public from the unions. There will, for instance, be no provision making it illegal for the Our personal nomination for the most unappealing personality yet to appear on a television program is Oscar Hammerstein II whose ex­pressed political, economic and social views were extremely re­volting. unions to call crippling strikes and tie up production of badly-needed material in times of emergency. "Neither will there be any at­tempt to make the labor unions subject to the anti-trust law when they act to bring about restraint of trade, which applies in other cases. In other words, It Is fu!Be to hope for any restrictive legislation along this line since the union lead­ers are in position to blackmail the lawmakers whose campaigns they have subsidized in spite of the law against such contributions.

May, 1958 Six Candidates Will Contend In Race For Texas Governor Governor Price Daniel will have five opponents in his race for a second term as Governor of Texas. W. Lee O'Daniel of Dallas who formerly held that office for two terms and also served as United States Senator from Texas until his retirement, has announced against him as has State Senator Henry Gonzalez of San Antonio, as well as three others who are practically unknown in Texas politics. Gonzalez' entry Into the race at the last moment was something of a surprise as he is new to the polit­ical scene-not that this would be against him if he thought stra;ght on major issues. But during his one term in the Texas Senate he dem· onstrated nothing more than the fact that he has a pair of strong lungs which enabled him to con­duct a long-winded filibuster against segregation bills. Aside from that his chief claim to distinction is in being named "Man of the Year" by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, in 1957. The first primary will be held in July and the second, and deciding one in August. Tahitians Say It With Stones Instead of Flowers Way out in Papeete, capital of Tahiti, the citizens have developed a new method of opposing objec­tionable tax levies. according to n French press agency dispatch from that island Paradise of the Pacific. When the governing council of Papeete proposed to levy a local in .. come tax on the natives, the latter armed themselves with stones which they heaved at the territor· fal assembly building breaking o·ut the windows and causing the would-be tax collectors to take to their heels. This is a rugged manner of deal­Ing with bureaucrats and we don't recommend it but we must admit that the islanders got the job done. The basic desire of the people in a Constitutional Republic is to own property, to earn money, to toil, to achieve, to create, to produce and to build. The objective of those in a Totalitarian State is to grab, to steal and to snatch away the possessions of the thrifty, the pro­vident and the industrious and to re-distribute them among the lazy, the indolent and the slothful. There is no more vicious theory ever given express.ion by the tongue of man than that pro· claimed by Karl Marx that the world's wealth should be distrib­uted ufrom each according to his abilities, to each according to hi.f need." Any nation which adopts this vile policy is headed for obliv· ion, for when men no longer have the desire to achieve, to own and accumulate possessions, they sink to the status of animals whose only desire is for a full stomach, and who cannot use anything they can~ not consume.

M•y. 1958 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Paqe 5 Spineless Citizens Who Refuse To Fight Deserve What They Get Are Our Public Schools Breeding Places For Juvenile Delinquents? Are you an American producer whose business has been shot to Kingdom Come because your rep­resentatives in Washington persist in voting to protect foreign inter­ests while letting yours go to pot? If so, do you take this treasonous behavior lying down and then rush to the polls at election time to vote for those whose objective is to bankrupt your business? If you're in this category of sub­missive and unresisting Americans who will take anything from their public servants without talking back, you deserve anything that happens to your investment. In this connection, there are some lusty Americans in Tennessee who love nothing better than to trade insults with the demagogues in Washington who come sniveling to them during the campaign ask· ing their ballot and then cast their own for foreigners. On June 24, 1956, a petition was forwarded to the Honorable Albert Gore, United States Senator from Tennessee, which was signed by 442 fine Americans who are em­ployed at the Cherokee Textile Mills in Sevierville. In this petition they asked him to vote to protect them against the possible loss of their jobs due to the importation of low-cost textiles from Japan. -;r-__,....., _ ,_,_.. Umlt :Japa­nese imports came before the Sen­ate a few days later, the senator showed how much concern he has for the industry of his own State by voting for the Japanese pro­ducers.

At this point, the head of the Cherokee Mills, Mr. A. G. Hein­sohn, Jr., came to the defense of his employees and wrote Senator Gore as follows: "Now, Senator, would you be so kind as to explain to us simple cauntry folks back home just ex­actly how it helps Tennessee fac­tory employees to be put out of work by the Japanese? "Explain to the 220 decent Amer­Ican citizens who invested their savings in this plant and thus cre­ated jobs for some 500 Tennessee workers, just how it benefits them to hand their business over to the Japanese. "Explain to the merchants of Tennessee how the transfer of fac­ ·tory payrolls to Japan will help them. "Explain to the cotton growers of Tennessee how much better it is for them to exchange their trust in GOD, their freedom, their right of jury trial and their legitimate mar­kets for bureaucratic masters and handouts of money picked from the pockets of other citizens by the tax collector. "Tell us, if your labor-boss pa­trons will permit it, are you in Congress to protect the freedom, the fObs and the property of Ten­nessee citizens, or are you so big for your britches that you now seek to regulate the world at the expense of your tax-paying slaves in Tennessee? "The time for pussy-footing Is past. Plain talk is in order and since you seek re-election in 1958, let us know now just where we stand so that we may decide whether to keep voting for an arrogant master or start looking for a real Ameri­can to represent us in the Senate." Right To Work Is Inherent In American Governing System While we have never been able to forgive Senator William Know­land for his part in passing the infamous Civil Rights measure which was a direct insult to the citizens of the South, we hope we are not so petty as to fail to rec­ognize and acclaim his efforts in behalf of sound principles of gov­ernment in other instances. We are thinking especially of his fight in behalf of right-to-work legislation which he seeks to have passed both in his native State of California and by Congress. It is incredible that,.Jn this pre­sumably free Republic this funda­mental and inherent right of Amer­ican citizens would not be accept­ed without question and that legis­lation on the subject would be nec­essary. But unfortunately this Is not true. The labor union racketeers have a strangle-hold on both State and Federal governments and the average lawmaker is as d~athly afraid of Walter Reuther's diabolic influence as he is of a rattlesnake. He would far rather betray his country and the interests of the American people as a whole than to be found on the black-list of the gang Jords of the labor union hier­archy. He thinks Jt might lose him votes although this theory has been disproved time and time again. All Americans who are worthy to be designated as responsible citi­zens of this Republic should be grateful to Senator Knowland for his courageous efforts to secure recognition of the God-given right of an American to work without paying tribute to any organized group for the privilege of support­ing his family. Taxpaying Citizens To Be Represented by Lobby Group The best wishes of all good Am­ericans are for the success of the Liberty Lobby started some months ;:;r!re~t~h~~e i~bW;!~~n~~~ f~; sound principles of government in the passage of legislation. Aside from representatives of legitimate industry who are staw tioned permanently in the naw tion's capital, the overwhelming majority of organizations there range all the way from left-wing to subversive groups and the pres­sure exerted on Congress by such outfits as the National Education Association, the NAACP, ADA, the National Council of Churches, Committee for an Effective Conw gress, AFL-CIO and other so-call­ed educational activities has been terrific. The Marxist legislation which has resulted from their ef­forts is evident in the general disw regard for Constitutional Govern­ment now sweeping the country. m:r~e d~~~erJ~ ~h:blu~:i ~i~c: there will be no big Foundations who will come forward and fi-nance it as their assistance is limit· ed strictly to those forces who promote National Socialism, but a valiant effort is being made to finance the Liberty Lobby which has met with some success. Among the outstanding Amer­icans who are on the Board of this patriotic undertaking are Judge Tom Brady of Mississippi; Taylor Caldwell of New York; Hon. Robert B. Dresser of Rhode Island; Percy L. Greaves, Jr. of Maryland; former Congressman Fred Hartley, Jr. of Washington, D. C.; J. Bracken Lee of Utah; Gen. George E. Stratemeyer of Florida; Robert B. Snowden of Tennessee; Paul Peters of Wash­ington, D. C. and a score or more of other outstanding patriots who have long been identified with or­ganizations and publications whose objective is to bring about a return of Constitutional Government in the United States. Willis Carto of San Francisco is corresponding secretary of the Liberty Lobby. According to reports of teachers ail over the nation who have not succumbed to the propaganda of International Communism, and are, therefore, not afraid to relate the facts, the public schools are turn~ ing out juvenile delinquents by the thousands. Obscene practices intended to break down all moral restraint of the nation's youth are more preva­lent in the school rooms of the country than in prisons and refor­matories, it is claimed. Practically all attempts at dis­cipline have been abandoned and harassed and unhappy teachers who are in constant fear of attack by young hoodlums armed with switchblade knives, are merely try-ing to hang on until the date of re- ,~ tirement when they hope to escape from the living hell in which they find themselves trapped. The cause for this widespread debasement of the nation's youth cannot be attributed to any one thing but, briefly, it started with the launching of the propaganda campaign of International Commu­nism many years ago for world conquest, with the youth of the various countries as their target. Progressive Education was devised to further this campaign for Inter­national Communism by which it was planned to break down all dis­cipline in the training of youth, to destroy all religious values, to com­pletely eJiminate a spirit of nation­alism and loyalty to country and to cancel all pride of race. Integration of the races is a strong factor in the degenerate conditions now prevailing in the nation's public schools but this re­volt'ing practice was initiated only after the groundwork was laid and it was only invoked to further de­moralize the younger generation on which International Commu­nism must depend to put its satanic ideologies into operation in this, the last great Free Republic on the face of the earth. As an American, whether you have children of your own or not. you owe it to the country which has allowed you to enjoy the high­est standard of living of any nation in the world, to familiarize your­self with conditions in the schools of your city or town and find out for yourself what is being t~ught American children to fit them for citizenship in this Republic.

Pogo 6 Fight Is Started To Do Away With American School Boards In another of the many attempts to break down American local self4 government, the Kremlin has de4 creed that school boards in this country are hindering the progress ot International Communism and must go. This is the conclusion one must inevitably reach following a drive by groups of professional educa­tionists, including t,he United States Department of Education, to discredit local school boards and esp~cially those in rural schools. A special study by the U. S. Department of Education fixes the blame for the shortage of rural teachers on the school boards in the local communities according to an article it1 a liberal chain of newspapers on April 30, in which it is claimed that many teachers are frustrated because local boards prohibit them from smoking, force them to attend church and even require them to teach Sunday School. The article says that "the United States is the only country which has a system in which top·level control of schools is held by groups of non·professional educators" but does not point out that this coun· try is practically the only nation on earth also which still enjoys some measure of freedom and local self·government. Something is referred to called The National School Boards As· sociation which has all the ear· marks of being an off·shoot of the National Education Association which, if true, is a dead give·away as to what is up. School boards are in for trouble. ''Education experts" will be on hand, it is revealed, when this Na­tional School Boards Association holds its next meeting and tell the delegates just how "uninformed about modern personnel proced· ures" most members of school boards are.

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIV! They Won't Understand Up North (Chattanooga News-Free Press.) Here's a story in race relations they won't understand. or won't want to understand, up North. It has no agitation or hatred or vio­lence in it. It is a simple, everyday type story that is a much more accurate reflection of Southern conditions than the civil righters' current agitation would indicate. Last month, Charles Kent Bridg­es, a white boy, risked his life to dash into a burning house to res­cue an aged Negro couple trapped by flame. No one knows what the boy thought when he ran into the fire. It is likely he thought only that some people were in danger and he wanted to help. Today, in Memphis, Negro citi­zins, speaking not racially but only appreciatively, have scheduled a little ceremony. Eighty·four-year­old Matthew Thornton, the Negro "mayor of Beale Street,'' will pre­sent $200 to the white boy as a special reward. The money was given by Negro citizens who want­ed to say thanks. That's all there is to it. It's a very simple thing of people living, each in his own way, with good wilt and a spirit of mutual helpful­ness and courtesy. A Rare Spirit On The Farm (St. Petersburg, Florida, Independent) Cattlemen in Palm Beach County appear to be way ahead of those in the West, and ol the grain raisers in Northern slates, in a return to the old traditional American self re­liance that has been sapped away by the doles and other giveaways of a "controlled" economy gone out of control. Meeting the other night at Belle Glade, although hard hit by cold, rainy weather, they flatly rejected an offer of free cattle feed from gov­ernment surplus. The:r eiplained, accordlnK to Coun­ty Agent M. U. Mounts, that they would gladly have considered accept­Ing the feed at prices below the mar­ket, but could not go for a plain handout that entailed their signing what amounted to declarations that they were practically paupers. Unan­Jmously, he said, they voted to put "honesty, dignity and Independence" ahead of their pocketbooks, even at the risk to son1e of them of going broke. The only concession they made was to f9rward resolutions to Washing· ton suggesting that procedures be set up to provide reduced price distribu­tions and a forgetting of the dole and pauper angles. Somehow we like the sound of thb:. It reminds us of the days be­fore there grew up governmental theories of spending everybody out of depression and the consequences of over-production.

Senate Race Will Have Only Two Contestants Ralph Yarborough who in a sur­prise victory last year was elected as a member of the United States Senate from Texas has announced for re-election to the full six-year term. His announcement followed a long period of mysterious silence on his part as to his future political intentions but many believe that it was just an act put on for the sus­pe~ value, if any, and that he knew all along what he was going· to do. The race is now definitely be­tween Yarborough and William Blakley of Dallas as no one else announced before the deadline. Summing up the senatorial situ· ation, not particularly as it relates to Texas but to all States, it doesn't seem, under present conditions to matter much who is elected to serve in that body. A candidate will make the most profound declarations on impor·­tant issues on the stump and will literally drip sympathy for sound principles of government. He will swear by the beard of the prophet that he is against Federal Aid, For­eign Aid, and all the other Socialist policies of the two major parties. When he gets elected and goes to Washington, however. it's another story. He starts fraternizing with the Reds In Congress and in the administration and before you can say "Karl Marx" he is voting right down the line with them. Until the system is changed and Socialism is routed out of govern­ment, lock, stock and barrel, no State can be sure that its repre­sentatives will not be contaminated by association and influenced by contact with the subversive ele­ment in Congress. We have said it many times be­fore but it bears repeating: Far too many of our national lawmakers behave, individually, like gentle­men and scholars but. collectively, perform like o r d i n a r y horse thleves. The International Socialist, Jus­tice Felix Frankfurter announced that <~the Supreme Court is not an originating lawmaker or a third branch of the legislature" and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram re­marked "We can only wish that, this being the case, the Court would cease acting like one when­ever it seems to suit its purpose to assume the role." Here are the names of the spon­sors of the unon-partisan" commit­tee to urge the continuation of Foreign Aid which is now engaged in an extensive brainwashing cam­paign to put down opposition by the people to continued giving away of the taxpayers money. we submit that not one of these spon­sors is capable of advising the Am­erican people on anything: Alfred M. Gruenther; Milton S. Eisenhow­er; George Meany; Lucius D. Clay; Barney Balaban; Eleanor Roose­velt; Helen R. Reid and Eric John­ston. Personally, we would just as soon follow the recommendations­of Kruschev in th• matter for it would parallel thosB which tho foregoing Pinkl will make. May, 1951 Everything Is Trying To Merge With Everything Else When something gets started in this country it spreads all over like an epidemic of chicken-pox. Right now a rash of "consolida­tion" has broken out and every .. thing is being "merged" with some­thing else. Any group, sect or race which proposes to keep its own separate entity is a pariah in polite society and about as socially ac­ceptable as a polecat who has just swallowed a clove of garlic. The latest innovation along this line was indicated by a press re­lease from Washington, D. C., on <\pril 28 which said that "the Meth­odist Church and the Episcopal Church have taken the first step on the long road to eventual unity." The article admitted that the "mer­ger" was still far in the future but reported that a joint statement issued by Methodist Bishop Fred­erick B. Newell of New York and Episcopal Bishop Robert F. Gibson, Jr., of Virginia indicated that tent~ ative agreements had been reach­ed on "intercommunion" which may eventually lead to organic un· ion. The matter will be further dis­cussed at the Triennial General Convention of the Episcopal Church in Miami, Florida, in Oc­tober and at the Methodist Gen­eral Conference to be held in Den­ver in April, 1960, the article stat~ ed. As a striCt individualist, we don't hold with all this consolidatin~ of this, that and the other. When groups and organizations with di­vergent views decide to merge into one cozy little family, both sides have to make a surrender of prin­ciples. Also when we gang up and clust­er together like penguins squatting on an iceberg, it's easier for th!;l enemy to pot-shot us than for them to have to pick us off one at a time. That's why the Soviets so strongly favor the consolidation of churches and other powerful insti~ tutions in the United States and other countries which they have sworn to conquer. Why not spread out as far as possible, cover a lot of territory and make it as tough on 'em as we can, we always say. "To Each His Own" is an un­beatable slogan for the free people of a Constitutional Republic.

May, 1958 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Pago 7 Letter To Krushchev c~uld Pass As Federal Funds For "Urban Renewal" Mean An Official Text-Book On Treason Federal Control And Forced Integration We doubt that the people of this generation will ever again be given as convincing a picture of Inter­national Communism's domination of American policies of govern­ment as that afforded them in "A Letter to Krushchev" appearing in the April edition of the magazine, American Opinion. Addressed to the brutal Kremlin dictator and written by the publi­cation's brilliant editor, Robert Welch, this frank and illuminating discourse leaves nothing to the imagination in detailing the far­flung operations of the Soviet ap­paratus in its powerful and high­geared campaign to bring the United States within the Commu­nist orbit. The letter Is couched in the bru­tally truthful and wholesomely in­sulting language of an outraged American patriot who sees his country being betrayed before his eyes and resents it with all his be­ing. Its forthrightness and candor Is a joy to those who are sickened to the nauseating point with wea­sel- worded, oblique and placating communications from those in high authority whose cowardly behavior is providing the Kremlin with its most powerful weapons in the cold war against us. Editor Welch points out how the m i ' control over th~fn~lici;! steadily tightened since the day in 1947 when Stalin bragged to a Czech diplomat that even then, he, Stalin, was in practical control of the American government. He punctures the illusion that the two Sputniks are indication of Russia's superiority in the nuclear field but emphasizes that they are rather the product of the minds of In his recent speech to the na­tion, the President referred to his administration as "Progressive Government." Remembering uPro­gressive Education', and what it has done .to stunt the minds of the youth of the nation and make them amendable to the ideals of a One­World Government, we think the President selected a fitting desig­nation. Tax racketeers of Texas are now agitating for either a sales tax or a State income tax and not as a replacement tax either but as a supplemental tax. As an excuse it is pointed out that uTexas alone among its neighboring States and the States of larger population throughout the nation is not using either a general sales ta.:t: or a State income tax." Instead of be· ing proud of this record and want­ing to maintain it, tax grabbers are itching to pin one or both of these miserable levies on the tax­burdened people of Texas.

As al­ways they are bluffing their way to victory and if they had the weapons and the superiority in ad­vanced technology they claim, they would be shooting and not talking, Mr. Welch charges. In delineating the instances where Soviet conspirators have worked with American traitors against the United States, Mr. Welch goes back to the betrayal of our ally Milhailovich and the turning over of Yugoslavia to Stalin's hatchet man, Tito; the launching of the New Deal in 1933; the attack on Pearl Harbor; the be· trayal of Poland; the betrayal of Chiang Kai-Shek; the dismissal of General MacArthur; the purchase of the Presidential nomination away from Taft in 1952; the defeat of the Bricker amendment; the Su­preme Court decision of May 12. 1954; the censure of McCarthy and other treasonous actions against this country whose telling requires almost fifty pages in the Welch let­ter. We guarantee that any American who reads this document will be more highly informed on Commu· nist activity in the United States than could be learned in an ordi· nary lifetime of casual and occa­sional reading on the subject. The ~<Letter" has been reptinted in neat and compact pamphlet form and we are informed that those who wish one copy of this great document may have it without cost by writing Mr. Robert Welch, Bel­mont 78, Massachusetts. National Capital Claimed To Be Having Its Own Depression The city of Washington is trying to 40urban renew" itself out of a terrible slump according to the local press there. The Federal City Council recent­ly warned that Washington's cen­tral business district is "threatened with serious decline," that tax values are dropping and retail trade falling off. The principal reason given was that people are leaving Washing­ton in droves and moving to sub­urban areas and nearby States. This means white people of course who started the exodus from the nation's capital when schools were integrated- there and the Presi­dent's prediction of a 41model for the nation" turned out instead to be the center of one of the worst crime waves in history. The Council, with true Washing· ton stupidity, is now planning to spend the city out of the depres­sion and it is indicated that the government will be asked for funds to be used in cleaning up slum There are many things there that need cleaning up more than slums, if you ask us. Vote Will Test Strength Of International Communism Here The American people are going to be able to gauge the influence of International Communism in di­recting American policies by the votes on Foreign Aid and the pro­posed extension of the Foreign Trade agreements. Both measures are opposed by rank and file Americans and early in the year, members of the Con­gress indicated they would abide by the wishes of the people. Inter­national Communists are naturally pushing both bills vigorously be­cause both are designed to damage, if not ultimately destroy, the Amer­ican Republic. According to press reports, mem­bers of Congress are weakening and weaseling on the subject and may vote according to th~ dictates of Invisible Rulers. Inste2d of vot­ing down all foreign aid. they may lop off a million here and there but go ahead and vote for the bill, even though the American Government is almost $300,000,000,000.00 in the red. The Foreign Trade Agreement is un-Constitutional and un-American and its overall ob.iective is to bank­rupt industry in this country. He Carried Off Everything That Wasn't Fastened Down The laxity of the American Se­curity system didn't have to be proved to any informed person but a technician in the Library of Con­gress has done it any way. According to an Associated Press release from Washington on April 26, John W. Dukeminier, a micro-photographer, calmly walk­ed out of the Library with 456 hush-hush scientific documents in his possession. He immediately reported his ac­tion to Robert Cutler, the Presi­dent's special assistant for national security affairs. Cutler said the matter would be "investigated." In 1955, Dukeminier' walked un­detected at night through the Air Force Missile Test Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida, to prove that "the security system of this nation needs a great deal of improve­ment:• It is good of this young man to be so concerned in the security system of his country but we think the pains he took to prove it was "insecure" were unnecessary. All he would have had to do is re­member the scores of secrets which were stolen by the Soviets which enabled them to get ahead in the nuclear field, to prove his point. We are informed that the Li­brary of Congress is almost entire­ly run by colored employes these days so perhaps the laxity in pro­tecting secret documents is unin­tentional and due to lack of under­standing on the part of the custod­ians entrusted with them. Perhaps Mr. Cutler will advise his friends in that section of the government of the extreme importance of guard­ing these scientific documents. If the people of Dallas accept Federal money for "urban renew­al" they will do so with their eyes open and with full realization of what it means, since they are for­tunate enough to have a Congress­man, the Honorable Bruce Alger, who has the courage and the wis­dom to warn them against it. While denying any intent to run the affairs of that city, the Dallas s t at e s m a n was conscientious enough to take time out from his busy schedule in Washington to inform the people of his district of the pitfalls in the urban renewal plan whereby the Federal govern· ment's control over the people is strengthened. Accordingly he prepared an ex­haustive report on the subject con­sisting of fifty-two separate ex­hibits and a fourteen-page state­ment outlining the reasons why Dallas should not enter into a Federally-assisted program of ur­ban renewal. Congressman Alger gave many reasons why Dallas should not al­low the Federal government to fi. nance, either wholly or partially, any program of local improvement, any one of which was sufficient to convince normal persons that such a step is not only ridiculous but dangerous. Among the reasons he advanced why Dallas should finance its own improvement programs and leave the Federal government out of their strictly municipal business were that the cost would be "fantastic and without limit"; that F~deral regulation always follows the use of Federal funds which rneans "forced integration in public hous­Ing" and that such procedure "heightens the potential danger of ?Omplete Socialism." Congressman Alger might have added, but did not, that the ac­ceptance of Federal funds under the circumstances will make the people of Dallas parties to an act of robbery becau~se there is no such thing as "Federal aid" and before Washington can send money to anybody, either at home or abroad, legal extortion must be committed and the money forcibly taken from the citizens of other areas in order to give it away. Personally we object to any part of our infinitesmal tax payments being used in promoting an inter­racial housing program in Dallas or anywhere else and we imagine that every responsible American citizen feels the same way. It is unfortunate that every State does not have more Congressmen with the integrity to speak out as Bruce Alger has against the evil and immoral practices which the Federal government is enabled to ~ indulge in as a result of he vicious Sixteenth Amendment to the Con­stitution.

Commemorating The First Anniversary Of The Death Of Joseph R. McCarthy One year ago on May 2, 1957, every person worthy to be classed as a loyal American citizen, was shocked and grieved over the tragic and untimely death of the Honorable Joseph R. McCarthy, United States Senator from Wisconsin and an American patriot without peer. His death resulted from the two-fold cause of overwork in behalf of his country and betrayal by disloyal fellow countrymen who, from a hard-core Cell of Leftists in the Legislative and Executive branches ot government, relentlessly persecuted him for his fight .on Communism until they had struck him down. No successor has arisen to take his place and Soviet infiltration ot American institutions of government, of education and of religion is now proceeding with full steam ahead and with only faint gestures of opposition to stem the evil tide .. May God forgive his enemies for their apostasy and treason. Marion B. Folsom, Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, a Cabinet Post created in 1952 to provide more jobs, has resigned and the President has named in his place another good old tried and true New Dealer, ArthurS. Flem­ing of Ohio. From a nationally-known writer in New York: uLet me repeat how much I admire your mastery of pungent idiom and the sparkFng, incisive phrase; that, of course, is what helps most in getting mater­ial read by the very people we are most anxious to reach." We believe it's carrying things a little too far if it is true, as re­ported, that in order to keep up with the campaign of the car deal­ers whose slogan is r<You Auto Buy Now," the Undertakers made up one of their own which was uYou Auto Die Now." uThe Republican Party was boin at Ripon, Wisconsin, on February 28, 1854 and died at Chicago, Illi· nois, on July 11 1952, at the age of ninety-eight years, four months and thirteen days, having been preceded in death by her sister, the Democratic Party, on March 4, 1933."-E. M. Biggers, Hous­ton, Texas. press. Thereafter, time slipped by and nothing was done in the Powell case and he stood a good chance to beat the rap until the New York Grand Jury cracked down on him ten days ago. Newsweek Magazine recently summed up the case and ended with this naive pronouncement: "Regardless of the outcome, one thing seemed certain-just who de· layed the investigation would never be known .. .'' Now we may not be very fast on the uptake but we'll bet we could figure it out if given plenty of time to seriously ponder the mat· ter from every angle. Governor Orval Faubus of Ark­ansas has announced in the press that he win appeal the Little Rock integration case uall the way to the Supreme Court.'' In our hum­ble opinion, he had just as well appeal it a all the way to the Krem­lin" so far as getting any Consti­tutional ruling is concerned. Vice President Richard M. Nix­on is reported in the press to have said to the people of Uruguay that uwe don't like dictators but we don't mix in other people's busi· ness." Like fun, we don't! We have 'mixed in the business of every nation on earth and that is the cause of the sorry State of the ND;tion today, and the reason foreigners hate us so cordially.
