Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead lor a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 7 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JULY-AUGUST, 1956 No. 7-8 Political Psychiatrists On Human Minds to Propose Hasten to Work World Black Magic Government New Dealers Pick Man Who A Little Cheap Politics Is Tailored for the Job Postpones U. N. Meeting The selection of Governor Frank G. Clement of Tennessee as the keynote speaker at the Chicago Com•cntion next month \\'35 Yery appropriate. in our opinion Governor Clement is one of the most outstanding opportunists, demagogues and political climbers who ever sacrificed a long-range principle for a temporary exped­ient and his ability at fence-strad­dling has been perfected to a fine art. Paul Butler, National Democrat· ic Chairman, is quoted as explain­ing following the announcement that the Tennessee governor had been named: "I feel that Clement will discuss the segregation issue in a way that is not offensive to any one." (Gad, what fearless statesmanship.) Butler is right, though. Clement will do just that. Eloquent. high-sounding words and flowery phrases will flow from his ruby lips like escaping gas from an open jet, but. when the shouting is over and the ap­plause has died down, he will have talked loud. long and fluently and said nothing. Next Edition of the Paper Will Be Out in September Each year the July-August edi­tions of the Southern Conservative are issued simultaneously and the month of August is skipped alto­gether. Usually Congress is ad­journed by this time and its mem­ber s, like a covey of quail. ha\'e flown orr in all directions. (Not that official skulduggery lets up with the adjournment of Congress, or that the rights and freedoms of the people are not in danger around the calendar in the city on the Potomac.) We are very glad for the short respite t his year as the thermome­ter in our part of the greatest State in the Union has hovered between 102 and 107 degrees during the time we have prepared copy for this edition, and wh ile it may be no better when September comes. we can always hope It is the general belief that when this pressure gets too strong, som('­thing will give and that "something"' will p r o bably be the Uni ted S tates delegation in the United Nations. An Alabama Negro was visiting kinfolks in the North. One day while talking with a relative, he kept sc1·atching vigoTously and finally his Telative asked him what on earth made him scratch like that. "Chiggers" answered the Negro front Alabam.a. "Hush, don't say that" the 1·elative said in a whisper. uzn tlle NoTth. we don't call them. 'chiggers'. Up here, w~ay chegroes." "Integrationists" Should Pause and Think This Over On June 29th the United Press carried a with a Lancaster, Pennsyl\'ania, which for sheer horror and revulsion tops any recent act by Negroes which are rapidly since the Supreme decision on segregation. An eight-year-old Negro boy kicked and beat a nine-year-old white girl to death in nearby Co­lumbia, Pennsylvania. Before she died in a hospital the little g irl said the Negro boy attacked her when she refused to give him a kiss. The Ame rican peo p le have become accustomed to ha v­ing the ir mone y taken away from t hem and the ir r ights and liberties confiscated, one by one, on demand of Social Planne rs w ho now e x e rcise comple te custody over human we lfare. If these tax-ridden citize ns f igure, however, that e v ery e vi l thing possible has already been done t o them and that they will be called on to make no fu rther contribut ion to the perfection of a One· World Utopian Stat e , we have a surprise for them. Two thousand political psychiatrists and social psycholo­gists, in solemn conclave assembled, have formulated a macabre program of such gruesome and ghastly pro­portions as to cu r l the hair of a Mohawk Indian. It is a plan for ma ss thought control which reveals that their next grim obiective is to take over our minds, cleanse them of all preconceived ideas of r ight and wrong, debunk them of outmoded moral conceptions and - having mentally castrated us - to turn us back to society with completely remodeled a nd ove r-hauled cranial equipment g u"Jra nteed to ins ure our accept­ance, without protest, of the One-World Government being prepared for us by the experts. If this sounds like a bad joke or a horror story from a lurid comic book, the reader had best not laugh or shrug it off until he has checked with the same source from which we got our material on the subiect - the revered and highly esteemed United Nations World Health Organ­ization located in the City of New York and supported largely by American dollars which the producers and workers of this country sweated to earn but which they were never permitted to hold in their little hot hands. The average law-abiding. church-going and tax~paying American has become universally recognized as knowing- and caring- -less about what is being done to him and to those who come after him, and to be more unconcerned over the manner in which his future destiny is being juggled by a species of vermin known as Social Planners, than any other member of the human race laying claim to citizenship status As placid, easy-going and gullible taxpayers have snored away their freedoms, their titles as freeho lders of a glorious heritage and their exalted estate as masters of elected public officials. vicious interlopers have been active in reverse proportion to their apathy, inertia and neglect. While they slumbered. Social Planners have elbowed their way into the three branches and all the various agencies o[ the American government where they largely dictate domestic and foreign policy and influence the squandering of untold bi llions of dollars on extraneous activi t ies and projects hav ing no semblance of relation to the functions of an orderly Constitutiona l government. These human n1aggots work in relays around the clock boring away at the foundations of American institutions and it"s regarded as an u n­profitable and misspent day in t heir lives when they have fai led to set in motion powerful forces whose ultimate objective is to uproot one more revered American custom, topple over additional cherished tradi­tions or sink another shaft in the heart of human decency. Least publicized but by far the most dangerous of this noxious breed are the polit ica l psychiatrists who have perver~ed the gr_e~t art of men­tal healmg_ by usmg their ta lents not to cu:e s1ck and a1_llng minds but in attcmptmg to re-mold human personal1ty to make 1t amenable to existence in a One-World Sla,·e State. The meeting of the International Commission on Menlal ll ealth at which this wide scple brain-washing program was initiated was held in London in 1948 but so thoroughly detailed and all-conclusive were the (Continued on Pa~e 2) M ill i o n s o f A m e r i ca n s T h i n k It-T h e S o u t h e r n ( o n s e r v a t i v e S a y s It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Alaska Mental Health Bill Is Still Viewed. With Suspicion Po:;siUl:-· no legislation within recent ye31'S has en used so much com­motion as the so-c.:dled Alaska mental health bill in Congress. There have been and counter-charges all cccded in surrounding with a lot of mysterious and suggestions of possible gcry on the part of its spon~or·s no explanations scented to As for us, we have learned long expcdcnce, as an observer such things, that the surest (•valuate legislation is to find introduced it and who backs pas­sage and, on this basis, the measure has been suspect from the first so Iar as we arc concerned. 1t passed the House \vithout a rec­ord vote which, in itself, is bad bus­iness, and in the shape it was pre­sented to the Senate, there is no doubt it was a measure that should have been killed on its face. However, Senator Barry Goldwater publicly assured the American people that all 1h.z potentially dangerous fea­tures would be taken out in the S<•nate Committee on Interior and In­sular Affairs which reassured many of tho~e who had bitterly opposed the legislation. consent of his colV,..-;::ucs who were present.. This is o •· way to pass legislation but it is a very unsavory way and reflects no credit on our elected lawmakers. Now the Honorable U.shcr Burdick of North D£~kota has had reproduced in the Congressional Record of June 11th a lengthy and highly interesting report pt·cparcd by George C. and Charles C. Finn, the famous Finn Twins, which presents an angle of the bill which is new and startling. Jn carefully documented informa­tion and reproductions of official pa­pers, they bring out that the granting ot 1,000,000 acres of land for a pro­ject that would have required per­hap: · only 50 or 75 at most, is in line with an effort to turn over mineral­rich Ala~ka land to private parties much in the manner lhat the Teapot Dome was handled some years ago. The Gum·dians of Our American 1028 Conncelicut Avenue, D.C., have reproduced a copy o[ this Finn docu­ment in the Congressional Record which may be had for ten cents per copy. 12 copies for one dollar or one hund1·cd for i1ve dollars. We suggest that every American who is con­cerned in the matter should get copies of it. Meantime the bill is in Conference Committee composed of members of both the Senate and House who will Political Psylhiatrists Propose To Work (Continued From Page One) fine points of the plan and so much preliminary organization work was necessary that it is only now that it is getting up steam. It is the way of Social Planners to act first in comparative secrecy and to correlate and integrate their plans so thoroughly and have them so far advanced that it is difficult, if not impossible, for them to be arrested when those who are potential victims of such social planning are let in on the deal. Millions of tracts, pamphlets, brochures and books are flooding the United States now misleadingly designated as authentic data on mental health but much of it stems from the World Health Organization of the United Nations and the over-all plan for a One-World Governrnent is stressed in each. A program which has required the efforts of two thousand persons six years to complete and launch cannot be described in limited space and billions of words in documents embodying this diabolic and Satanic blueprint for universal thought control cannot be briefed for casual comprehension. We can only touch on a few of the points that were brought out at the London meeting by these fiends in human form who plan to tame and subdue the thought processes of such individualists as may stand in the way of the plan to level off the people of the United States and the world into one conglomerate mass of unified humanity. Primarily ··Mental Health" was impressed on the London meeting as being synonymous \vith One-World government and none of the psy­chiatrists' valuable time was wasted in considering treatment of individ­ual cases. Only mass treatment of vast segments of people to induce a proper attitude toward the establishment of a totalitarian One-World State claimed the attention of these international brain-washers who urged the mobilization of every available social, economic and political agency in the campaign to mold and direct the thought processes of the people of all ages toward this end Delegates were assured that not only individuals but entire social systems may be changed and human thinking directed into desired channels by organized psychiatric effort led by those thoroughly trained in such mass alteration of the human mind. They were remembering, perhaps, that in the subjugation of the Satellite Countries by the Com­munists and the forcing of false confessions of guilt by hapless victims, political psychiatrists played a major role in preliminary mass brain­washing of the people. The result was that Senator Gold­water re-wrote the bill eliminating lhc dangerous seizure and commit­ment features of the bill as it passed U1e. House but authority to grant Alaska 1.000,000 acres of land was lt>fl in. Also the Alaska legislature w..1s gi\·cn authority to replace present Federal laws governing such matters by whatever legislation might be deemed proper. The bill passed the Sem1te with only about fifteen \\hich was highly of the extremely attempt to reconcile the House and Another interesting disclosure of the London conference was that ::ienate bills.

It is tar better that it be delayed than that it be adopted in the ques­tionable form as passed bolh by the House and Senate. State Officials Went Haywire On the Supreme Court Ruling The only places in the South' where we have integration is where local Reds have jumped the gun and used the Supreme Court decision o( 1954 as an excuse for doing something they wanted to do any way. The ruling had reference only to one school in Kansas, one school in South Carolina, one school in Virginia, one in Delaware and one in the District of Columbia. The greatest mistake in connection with the whole rotten deal was when other State authorities took notice of it. They should have ignored it and several of them did. including Mississippi and Georgia and there is no integration there. They should have left it to those four States and the District of Columbia to fight back and these five should ha\·e fought it to a finish. But, instead. fluttering and fidgety officials who had no under­standing of the rights of the sovereign States sent officials to Washing­ton to "plead'' with the court when they were not even involved in the decision. Texas, for instance, has a law against integration and the State Constitution also provides for separate schools and this law and the Constitutional provision are still in effect, as the Supreme Court does not happen to possess the authority to repeal them. ln the brochure titled ''Mental Health and World Citizenship'' which embodies the proceedings and conclusions of the London con­ference, it is frankly pointed out that: "We are concerned with the atti­tudes of groups of men in relation to one another, and with the princi­ples and practices of mental health in relation to a world community'' and if that is not plain enough listen to this: "The ultimate goal of men­tal health is to help men live with their fellows in One 'World." Neuroses and mental disorders were defined by these psychiatric screwballs as being expressed in patriotism and love for one's own coun­try rather than in a type of world loyalty which recognizes no frontiers Other evidence of mental illness was described as a strong feeling of Nationalism, race prejudice, respect for family and familiar traditions; in short any pattern of living that is based on recognized conceptions of decency in a civilized society marks one as a psychopathic case and a fit subject for the experts in mental rejuvenation. Only those holding a firm belief in complete r~:;.:i:J.l mixing and agreeable to existence in a controlled slave !state in which all persons look alike, act alike and think allke and are willing to perform merely as cogs in a vast universal ma­chine may be given a clean bill of mental health in the viewpoint of these depraved and low-lived specimens of human depravity. To achieve the frightening state of mental and moral degeneracy to which they aspire, these putrid brain prostitutes are asking concerted and cooperative action by all social, educational, religious, political and related agencies with an international viewpoint such as UNESCO. labor unions, International Labor Organization, State and national health departments. social workers, psychologists, school teachers and college professors. political and professional groups of liberal leanings and all others whose interests are world-wide and unrestricted by national boundaries or narrow concern for the survival of the countries of their birth, with psychiatrists. of course. leading and directing this mass movement toward mental, moral and physical slavery for the people of the United States and the world.

How Mixed Up and Confused Can Billionaire Socialists Get? The Ford Foundation granted $400,000 and later $1,000.000 to the University of Chicago to ''ad­vance human welfare" and espe­cially to do research on "law and the behavioral sciences." If the reader docs not know what this m(-an::., neither do we. Neither, for Uwt matter, docs the University of lllino!s nor the Ford Foundation. It w:1s merely an excuse to turn O\'er a lot of lax-exempt money to a bunch of educated nuts in order that they might go browsing around in things that do not con­cern them. Their first venture into "re­search on the behavioral scien­ces" was to rig up som<' kind o( contraption so they could listen in on secret jury hearings which was and is a strict violation of law. As a result, the whole transaction was investigated by the Senate Intern­al Security Subcommittee of which Senator 'James 0. Eastland is chairman. The "bugging" o[ the jury by these Chicago University screwballs has been fully investi­gated by the subcommittee and the Department of Justice. asked to take action against them. '·Today 1.5 millioPs of Ameri­can troops are statio11ed in 900 places. in few of uhtch they are secure. in none of which they are popular'' - Dorothy Thompson. In attempting to justify the whole silly and unwarranted pro­ceedings, the Ford Foundation is­sued a statement saying that it was simply an attempt ''to gain a factual basis for understanding the behavior of juries and their place in American legal structure." Well, the place of juries in the American legal structure was pret­ty well defined in the AmPTican Constitution long before the Ford Foundation and its stable of subsi­dized college professors was· ever heard of. About the only thing that the Ford, Rockefeller and similar tax­exempt organizations are doing is to give stature to the Marxist claim that the possession of great wealth is an evil. When we see dailv how the So­cialist descendants Of Ford. Rock­efeller and others are using the money that they had no hand in amassing. it almost makes us rea­lize that old Lenin and Engels had something when they implied that wealth should be taken out of the hands of those who do not know how to use it.

That he leans further to the left than his two immediate predeces­sors and any of the currently pro­posed candidates for the Demo­cratic nomination certainly should be obvious to all who make any pretense whatever of keeping the record straight. Claiming t11at his "confidential source materhl'' was provided him by close associates of the Presi­dent, Donovan tells of the con­tempt of the Chief Executive for Conservative or right-wing Repub­licans which reached such propor­tions in the summer of 1953 that Mr. Eisenhower seriously consid­ered the idea of setting up his· own new liberal party. Only a complete moron would not have already figured this out for him­self, as he watched the President adopt one New Deal a nd Fair Deal policy after another. Dumb as we are, we have not only made this charge time and again in the pages of the Southern Conservative> but have even pointed out that Social­ists are now in total control of the Repub1ican Party even as they now absolutely dominate the Dem­ocratic Party. That Senator Joseph R. Mc­Carthy's attempts to get Commu­nists out of the gO\'ernment. the Army and defense plants "disgust­ed and infuriated" the PresidPnt, as Donovan charges, certainly was obvious during the Army-McCar­thy hearings when the Wh1te House threw evLt·y possible ob­stacle in the Wisconsin senator's way to prevent the accomplish­ment of his objectives. Donovan further quotes the President as saying "it might be a good idea for the Kn·mlin to put McCarthy on its payroll." There are several million Americans who are firmly conYinced that there arc many in high echelons in Washington who are covertly and deliberately giving aid and com­fort to the Communists in their attempts to destroy the American form of government, but Joe Mc­Carthy is definitely not one of the suspects. We hope the President was misquoted on this. Donovan was a little more subtle in telling of the President's ap­proval of the admission of Red China to the United Nations. "Eis­enhower was not convinced that the vital interests of the United States would be best served by prolonged non-recognition of Red China" he wrote. Donovan c.ould even get bets that as soon as the election is over. Red China will be admitted to the United Nations at a session of the outfit which was to have met in September but. on White House request. was post­poned until after the election Informed Amcricar.s have known from the first where the agitation for integration originated All in all. we consider Dono­van's book strictly "old hat'' to all but the dullest, 'most stupid and obtuse of Americans.

Later, the President, in conversation with an aide said: 'They wanted me to say something about the 14th and 15th amend­ments, but I Tefused emphatically to do so, or to advocate standing the Pyramid on its ape:r, or in­~ ·erting the \Vasl!ington monu­ment'.'' Burton A. Prince, West­field. Mass . There teas a nonor over the air and through the press that Fred Seaton the new Whit2 House ap­pointee as Secretary of the Inter­ior was a consen•atit•e which seemed too good to be true, if nat act u a Z l y 1mbetierable. Sa r e enough, the rumor was baseless. \Ve now find out that when he was n senator f1'0Jn Nebraska for a short peTiad fallowing the death of the 1-Ianm·able Kenneth Wher­ry, his vote on measures approved by the ADA was almost one hun­dred per cent and only Wayne Morse had a better ADA voting record. We knew there was a catch to it because no one but extreme left - wingers are appointed to any post. But at least we could hope for a little while. According to press 1·eporis, one of the State Department's sym­phony orchestras has been held up and will not be permitted to continue on tour until an investi­gation is made into the alleged Communist affiliation of some of its members. This is only a tem­porary arrangement, however, and that agency of government will continue to book all sorts of en­tertainers to foreign countries in the i11terest of promoting 11Cttl­ture.' In view of the permanent Rock 'N RoH policy which that department seems to hare adopt­ed, we suggest that it might be more practical for the President to remove Dulles and appoint Elvis Presley as Secretary of State. One of the most di:.:graceful performances e\·er .stagC'd by <'ither House of Congres.s conce~ns their handling of ~he so-calle.d forl:ign aid bill. Overwhclmmg sentiment of the country IS for the discon!Imwnce of this give-away program which is not only un-Constitutional but im­moral since members of Congress who support it are not only giving away money that docs not belong to them. but they are giving away money the Federal government docs not have and has to borrow. So they cut billions out of the bill in the House. then reston· it; then cut it down again and send it to the Senate which goes through tl1e same s~lly procedure, and it \yill probably wind i!P with the same outrageous figure of more t~an 4 billion dollars \\·hen It is finally passed, Including a big slice for Tito's Yugoslavia The most sane, sound and sensible speech made on the \\"hole• affair was that of Congresswoman Iris Blitch of Georgia who told her col­leagues in the House what she thought about foreign aid and she didn't stutter when she said it.

I am afraid of \\·hat \\·e will do io our­selves. ''Mr. Chairman, this country will never be destroyed unless So­cialism first takes hold of the country. That is the pattern~ that is what has happened in so man y cou ntries and that is wha t Commun1sm is aiming to do to our United States. We are the only stronghold left ~ h at will keep Communism from enslaving the world. Enemies from within are working day and night to accomplish this purpose. "When the war was O\'er, my heart was deeply touched. I \vou1d have done anything on earth to restore the ruins left in war's wake in so many countries. To help these peOple recover from their wounds was a good thing to do, and a thing that the American people cooperated in heartily. "To the Foreign Affairs Committee whose members have tnl\"C'lled so much all over the world, let me say I have not seen the world. I do not kno\\' what it looks like, but I can read and I can study; and I know that this program has come to be wrong. "This Congress is going to be turned upside do\Yn and e\·ery· person who votes for this program that is presented here is going to ha\·e to face the people of his district when he goes home. The most refreshing thing that has happened to me since I have been privileged to sit with you here is the debate that has gone on today. ''Why are you men and women rising to speak'!

I can stand here and testify that the spirit of independence, the goodness and the common sense of the ordinary American citizen is not dead. Thank you.''

Of Meaning of the Const itution All during World War II, the American government used all its facilities to discredit the Nazis and Fascists, as it properly should i1avc done. Through pr~ss releases. mov­ing picture houses and every other medium of communication these two degenerate philosophies of government were blasted almost every hour around the clock Even the pulpit rang out with denuncia­tion of Hitler and Mussolini's brand of totalitarianism When the war ended, these two ideologies died with Germany':; and Italy's defeat as they were mostly local in their nature and did not extend bevond the borders of the countries ,\-he-re thev were born. - But Communism is something else and because of its rapid spread since the war is far more danger­ous tlwn Nazism and Fascism put together. But is there any noticeable cam­paign on the part of the govern­ment to stamp it out? Do the movie houses flash warnings on their screen against this insidious ene­my'? Do pu lpits ring with protests against this powerful anti-Christ­ian ideology? Not enough that yuu could notice it. On the other hand. let any pat~ riotic American rise up in Wash­ington to fight this deadly menace and warn against it and highly­placed leaders get out the tar­bucket and go to work. All of which means that there is something fundamentally wrong and corrupt in the manner in which the American go\·ernment is cur­rently being administered and un­less there are some mighty changes made. it is not inconceivable that the Iron Curtain will close around "the land of the free and the home of the brave." Candidate Who Omits Double Talk Creates Sensation in Texas Race A political phenomenon has been brought to light in the six-man gubernatorial campaign m Texas. One of them has bowled over the electorate by refusing to play the game according to the modern formula of evasion. equivocation and double-talk. Instead. this candidate comes out flat-footed and suys exactly what he thinks. His name is J. Evet~s Haley. historian, lecturer and ranchmu.n·from deep West Texas. Possibly because this species of politician is practically extinct in Texas as in all other sections of the country, this West Texas cowman is proving something of a sensation in a field where frank and forth­right expression of opinion has come to be largely regarded as a sign of political naivete, if not downright heresy. • When, for instance, a CIO member of a large Dallas audience sought to heckle him by asking him his attitude on union labor, Haley replied that he believed labor had a right to organize. to collecti\'ely bargain and that union members had a right to quit when they want to. ''But" he quickly added "If after you do quit. you think you have the right to keep somebody else off that job let me tell you this: If, on my ranch, a bunch of my hands quit and you fello\VS came up there trying to interfere with the fellows I then hire to flank a bunch of yearlings on my land, I'll meet you at the fence with a .32 and. if necessary, I'll draw a bead on you and rim a shell and leave you lying on the fence line." And those who have known him as professor of history at the Uni­versity of Texas, as a lecturer and later as a successful rancher, insisl that he would do just that. A South Texas audience arose in a body and cheered wildly when he responded in this manner to a question as to how he would handle the matter of segregation: "I would handle it as it has always been handled in Texas. Texas would stay segregated. And if any Federal agent came into the State to enforce integration, I would put him in jail and keep him there until he agreed to get out of the State." Reaction to this unusual attitude of a man seeking public office resulted, at least in the case of one big city, in lifting Haley's name from last to first place almost overnight in a newspaper pol l. The Southern Conservative endorses no candidate for public office at any time and does not intend to do so in this instance. Neither do we venture any prediction on the outcome of this race where the odds favor those bolstered by large voting blocs or special groups. It is our intention merely to remark on the apparent appreciation of the average American voter for frankness and honesty on the part of candidates for public office and to express the hope that all those making such bids may some day adopt the forthright policy of this plain Texas cowman who calmly walks into the forum and says what he thinks, let­ting the chips fall where they may. There was a time when most candidates wC>re like th<:1t. God speed the day when they are that wa:v again. On the 17th o[ April. 1930. the New York Times quoted Felix Frankfurter as saying: ' 1The Con­stitution is what the Supreme Court Judges say it is." No more misleading, fallaciow; and dangerous sentiment was ever given voice than this uttcnmce by a foreign-born Marxist who , through some malicious streak of malice on the part of the gods, was one day to sit on that samP. Supreme Court and function in ac­cordancE' with the belief he had expressed on that Spring day in 1930 To admit that Frnnkfurter's contention is true and that the greatest document ever written is nothing more than the casual in­terpretation of a political ap~ pointee to a soft berth, is to de­fame the patriots who wrote it with the- sole purpose of protect­ing the fundamental rights of. the people and perpetuating Constitu­tional government in the United States If we concede that the Constitu­tion is only what the Supreme Court J udges say it is, then we must also grant that if the day comes when the appointees to th'lt bench are outright Marxists, in­stead of extreme liberals and Com­munist sympathizers, we will then be without protection or safeguarrl for the freedoms so specifica1ly set down in its every provision. The Constitution is what those who wrote it intended it to be--a charter 0f our rights and freedoms and the official textbook on American go\·erning procedure. Any of its Justices who hold other­wise are profaning that great doC'­ument for which they should be forcibly removed froin office.

From a Salem, Virginia, lady: "Until I became acquainted with the Southern Conservative, I didn't know there was a woman in the United States who could attack our problems with the wit, brilliance and logic that you do. I wish I could put the paper in the hand of every literate person in this country.

He is highly experienced in mountain-climbing, hiking and horseback rid­ing. Since becoming a member of the Court he is reported in the press to have accepted a $1.500 cash award from the CIO in recognition of his highly developed "social conscience,·· but if he has ever b~en ac­claimed for his legal learning. there is no record of it.

McLellan of Arkansas, is chairman. Thi!i is the same committee which was known as the McCarthy Committee when Republicans con­trolled the Senate. It was when the Committee delved into the un· palatable situation at Fort Mon­mouth and was getting red hot on some information that would have led to big names i1 high places. that a couple of old goats in the SenatC' cooked up the resolution to •·censure'' the Wisconsin senator The same committee under Sen­ator McLellan is bringing out some appalling information which gets little or no publicity in the regular press and it will be interesting to see if FlandCl's of Vermont and Watkins of Utah come galloping onto the Senate floor some fine dav with another censure resolu­tio. n against the present head of the committee. TJw report referred to above re­leased bv the Committee showed by swor'n testimony of thirteen witnesses that. under the GI bilL retu~·ned Korean veterans have at­tended schools that were not only owned and operated by Commu­nists but were on the Attornev General's list of subversives ~ It seems that the GI bill passed following World VVar II and the Korean War are so worded that the Veterans Administration has no di::;crction in the schools to which GI's are sent and if these ex-soldiers happen t.o select a Communist school. as many of them have done, the VA has no recoursC'. Approval of the schools is left to State Agncies such as State Commissioner of Education or whatever title the head of a state educational bureau may car­ry. Unfortunately many of the State agencies are dominated by the Na­tional Education Association which fs extremely "liberal" or left-wing, to describe them charitably, and would be more than likely to ap­prove Communist - dominated schools. This means that the taxpayers are pulling up the ftwds to edu­cate American ex-Gn, in the Com­munist philosophy because the mone.v that pays these Communist schools is appropriated by Con­gress to the Veterans Administra­tion out of money taken from tax­payers. member of the James Connellv Branch of the Communist PartY A Mr. John Huber who joined the Communist Party on request in order to get information for the FBI told of his frequent associa­tions with Dr. Rubenstein in con­nection with party matters. The Committee's investigation into this Robert Louis Stevenson school covered the period from the time the school was approved until June of 1952 when Dr. Rubenstein sold the school. During this period from 1940 until 1952, this Communist School owned by Dr. Annette T. Ruben­stein was paid Federal tax money in the amount of $2,081.397.96 as tuition and expense of GI's attend­ing such Communist School, ac­cording to the rC'port, page 5. The California Labor School was approved under GI law in 1945, and also approved by the California State Board of Educa­tion at the time. In 1947 the Cali­fornia State Board of Education withdrew its approval of the school and later it was put on the Attorney General's list of subver· sive organizations. But during the time this school was teaching GI's, it received a total amount of taxpayers funds of $196,947 for both subsistence and tuition of American GI's. The Cartoonist and Illustrators School of New York, jointly owned by Burne Hogarth and Silas Rhodes both of whom were identi­fied as Communist Party mem­bers on sworn oath of witnesses who had attended party meetings with them, was licensed by the New York State Board of Educa­tion in September, 1952, after hav~ ing been approved under the GI bill in 1947. During this period the school re­ceived from the Federal govern­ment through the Veterans Ad­ministration. $1.176,712.76 of tax­payers money. The school is still being operated and 278 GI's are being trained there, or were when the committee closed its investi­gation in 1955. The Radio Television and Tech­nical School of Allentown, Penn­sylvania, was shown as being own­ed by a 4-way partnership-Mi­chael Freedland, Albert Gerber. Raymond Freudberg and Harry Galfand. Freedland. who admitted to owning fifty per cent of the school was put on the witness stand after having been identified by witnesses under oath as a Com­munist party member, and as hav­ing had a "subversion closet" in his home, so designated because Communist literature was stored in it for distribution. refused time White House Attempt to Take Over Nation's Public Schools Defeated Like C\'t'ry right-thinking American, we are delighted that the so-called '·Federal Aid to Education" bill in Congress has been killed, althou~h we arc sorry and ashamed that it had to be disposed of by a subterluge The ~ill should hove been voted ~own because it was merely an­other dev1ce through which the Reds m education and in government hoped to gC't control of the nation's public schools and dictate the courses of study for American school children. Aside from this, there is no clause in the Constitution of the United States ~v~ich provides t~at the Fed~ral governme.nt shall have any responsibility whatever m the buildmg or operatwn of the various school systems of the States and this should have been all any respon­sible lawmaker needed to know to induce him to vote against the bill. Being an election ye~r .. the tempt~tion to play politics, and cheap politics at that, was irresiStible and this opportunity to sound off and do a lot of loud-talking for the benefit of the National Education As­sociation Pinkos was utilized to the fullest. It was the amendment by the Negro congressman from New York barring aid to any State failing to comply with the ruling of the s, .. ·edish Marxist Gunnar l\Iyrdal. through the medium of the American Supreme Court. that served to kill the bill which should ha\'e been voted down quickly and with little argument simply because it was un~Constitution­al, un-American and a cheap trick of Vlashington bureaucrats to further encroach on the rights of the States. The unfortunate aspect of a measure like this which is sponsored only by the most radically left-wing and Irresponsible clement of the nation's citizenship is that, once it is killed, it does not stay dead but, like the legendary jointed snake, snaps back together and grows again. The nefarious lobby of the National Education Association will re­double its efforts at the next session of Congress to muster support for similar legislation but, of course, there is always hope in the meantime that some of the deadwood will be cleared out of Congress through the Fall elections and men and women of understanding and with respect for the Constitution chosen to supplant them. Those who opposed the measure, with or without amendments, de­serve the hearty approbation of <·very American who is concerned in the perpetuation of Constitutional governm~1t. President Again Displays Utter Contempt for White Southerners One of the most outstandingly unfitted and unsuited appointees for a Federal job which the United Stales Senate has been called on to confirm in recent years-during which time they have had some odd specimens of humanity flung at them for approval-is one Si­mon Sobeloff whom the White House has named as J udgc of the Fourth U. S. Circuit Court of Ap­peals. This Court comprises Virginia, West Virginia. Maryland, North Carolina. and South Carolina and the appointment of a pronounced South-hater to preside over a Dixie Court is generally regarded as merely another of the studied in­sults which the White House seems to take delight in showering on the white people of the South. Sobeloff. onC' of the most dedi­cated Roosevelt New Dealers in Washington, has never overlooked an opportunity to take a swing at the South and its im:titutions and his favoritism toward Communist­sympathizers and fellow travellers has been frequently demonstrated in his official actions as Solicitor General of the United States. cannot be justified on any grounds, legal, moral or otherwise and It can only be concluded that he was selected partly from a desire to further humiliate the people of these five states, and partly be­cause Presidential advisers are partial to persons of his type. and refuse to consider any other The decent element of citizens in the States involved are aghast and outraged at this appoin ment but our guess is that the Senate will go right ahead and confirm him if their policy of approving anything with two legs which has been pursued in the past. is con­tinued in future tle puppies and 110led to confirm Sobeloff the bitter tion of people of tile States involved.

He admitted that 596 Gl's had been "educated" in his school since July I. 1949, and that he had re­ceived $215.523.26 in government funds from the Veterans Admi nis­tration for the schooling of these Gl's. Perhaps. the thing that stands out clearest from these reports. is the lack of supervision in expending the American taxpayers money and these Communist schools operating under a law pass­ed by the Congress which provides for no such supcn'ision. In other words. the Federal gov· ernment is charged by the admin· istration to be scrupulously care­ful not to pay out any money to any concern which refuses to em­ploy Negroes, but no check what­ever is made to find out if funds are being paid to those who employ Communists. .Kll of which inspires our fer­vent wish that we could have just one thoroughly anti-Communist administration in Washington which would not only see that no Communist. sympathizers and fel­low trave11ers are appointed to high office. but would clean out all these Communist rats ..vhich are holed up in practically every strategic activit:v with which the Federal government is associated. The Supreme Court's knock-ont of puTt of the State Right-To­Work laws. and which npplies to tlfe railToad ind-ustry, is just the first step. Just give 'em. time and they wilL knock these laws out in theiT entirety. If t he s e judicial bulls-in-a-china-shop are not re­stmined they will crash dou:n every State law and regulation like a bou:ler knocking dotcn len pins.
