Transcript HE OUTHERN ON~ Sec. 34.66 P .L.& R. U. S. POSTAGE PAID Permit No. 1665 Fort Worth, Texas VATIVE -To plead for a return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 2 Fort Worth, Texas, March 1951 No.3 OLD FASHIONED ECONOMY AND JUDGMENT IN SPENDING AND NOT NEW REVENUE SOURCES IS ANSWER TO TAX PROBLEM Most Shameful And Degrading Chapter In History Of American Government Is Revealed By Texas Newspaper criminal conspiracy a m o n g corrupt Federal government officials which re­sulted in the snatch of the Texas Tide­lands, but the classic document on that subject is the one which appeared serially in the Dallas Mo.rning News written by Allen Duckworth. Step by step in language which was brilliant and, at the same time, so clear and simple that a child could under­stand it, Mr. Duckworth revealed the dastardly plot from its beginning when money-mad oil speculators and cor­rupt politicians in Washington com­bined their diabolical ingenuity and came up with the blueprint for the big­gest robbery of all the ages. While the entire presentation by Mr. Due o is so amazing and over­powering in its implications as to make it hard to emphasize the forcefulness of any one section of it over another, the one thing that stands out like a mink coat on a stenographer is his revelation of the attitude of a member of the Supreme Court of the United States concerning property rights, one of the basic guarantees made by the architects of this Republic. Texas was referred to as the "mere property owner" having "bare title" to the Tidelands in an opinion on the sub­ject written by Hugo Black, former Alabama Police Court judge and Ku Klux Klan leader who, by that peculiar vule of selection employed by the last two Presidents to insure that mostly the weak, the inept and incapable shall be appointed to public office, is now a member of the highest tribunal in the land. Some multimillionaire philanthrop­ist who wants to render an invaluable service to his country could do no bet­ter than to arrange to have this series of articles printed in pamphlet form and presented to every adult student of every institution of learning in the United States. In justice to these students, and as an off-set to the barrage of Socialistic propaganda which has been levelled at them since 1933 to sway their minds in favor of a paternalistic government in Washington, they should be provid­ed with accurate information proving that many of the chief operators of the Federal government for the past eigh­teen years have been master political crooks whose schemes for committing the perfect crime in the form of the Tidelands theft, have reduced the per­petrators of the Brinks, Inc., robbery to the status of small-time pickpockets. When an investigation is made of any government agency or depart­ment as currently operated, it follows, as night follows day, that a mass of corrupt practices will be brought to light . It was, therefore, no surprise to any person of discerning intelligence when the probe into the activities of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation disclosed alleged pay-offs, influence­peddling and high pressure tactics on the part of hangers-on of the Truman administration. The proper solution of the whole nauseous mess is not, as has been sug­gested by the president and others, to reorganize the agency under one head. The answer is to abolish it complete­ly and unequivocally. Period. There was never any justification for it being set up in the first place except that it gave Roosevelt addition­al opportunity to build his political empire on a more solid basis by hav­ing these additional billions of tax­payers' money to dish out to favorites. The money that is being loaned by this agency belongs to the taxpayers of the United States and if they want to go into the loan business, t h e y should be permitted to do so on their own initiative and responsibility and not compelled to go through the Fed­eral government. Those who founded this Republic made no suggestion that Uncle Sam should ever become a loan shark nor contemplated that the time would ever come when three balls would be placed over the door of the Federal Treasury. Abolishing completely this uncon­stitutional and unnecessary agency which is performing a service best rendered by private lending concerns, is one answer to the eternal and un­ceasing demand for higher taxes. Tip To Budding Career Girls (By The Editor) To get ahead fast in your profession, Work hard, learn to plan and to think, Then get you a job in the White House, And you, too, may snag a pastel mink. Millions of Americans Think I Abolishing Boards, Bureaus And Commissions And Firing Parasites From Government Payroll Would Help A Lot. A member of the Texas legislature has written us, along with other newspapers of the State, asking us to give editorial sanction to a tax bill which he has introduced in order to open up an "untapped source of revenue." Sorry, brother, but we are not about to endorse any such bill for wet are against every form, type and fashion of tax measure so long as th~t Federal and State governments continue their wild and unbridled passion for squandering the taxpayers' money on every idiotic and Socialistic pro-­posal that the addled brain of political hop-heads can think up. We know a way to raise money for the necessary expenditures for legitimate functions of goverment, both Federal and State, and it does not require the passage of any tax bill to do it. It would not get to first base, however, because it does not take int<t consideration the employment and addition to the public payroll of mont prospective voters to oil up State and Federal political machines. In the case of the Federal government and of many of the States. the payroll could be cut in half and fifty per cent of the employees dis· charged without detriment to any service that was ever intended to ba rendered by a government of the people. Any one who has ever been around Washington and the various State c2pitals of the nation for any length of time, has witnessed the unforget-· table spectacle of useless and unnecessary employees falling all over each. other's feet and getting in each other's hair as they go about pretending to work at some task which would far better have been left undone, in tha first place. · Of course such a plan of economy would be tough on the parasites on the Federal and State payrolls because they would have to go to work for a living and, after sucking the public teat for years, the unaccustomed exercise might be fatal, but it is the only solution .of the taxpayers• dwind· ling substance and the certain insolvency which will ultimately face thct Federal and State governments under a policy of continued and increased spending. c As an example, the Federal government could go a long way in raising needed funds by withdrawing all financial support from that unspeakaple conglomeration of alien and Socialistic-minded politicians known as the United Nations which has nicked the American taxpayers for $424,000,000 during the five years of its existence and which will get to them for $120,000,000 more during the coming year. We could quit paying the salaries of nearly ten thousand men and women who are on the payroll of that monstrosity whose only results sa far have been to get the United States deeper into the mire of interna· tional confusion and misunderstanding. We could cut out the Cadillac limousines and liveried chauffeurs wh() tear in and out of New York shuttling foreigners back and forth between that city and Lake Success some of whom probably never rated anything better than a ride on a camel in the country from which they came. We could abolish comple~tely the Reconstruction Finance Corporation which is hag-ridden with influence peddlers and honeycombed with White House pets and save the billions spent in operating and maintaining that agency which has no legitimate place within the framework of a Consti~ tutional government. We could silence forever the "Voice of America," the toy of the play~ boys in the State Department which is costing taxpayers $11,000,000 per year for which they receive no benefit whatever as evidenced by the fact that they beamed this bright program to the Chinese Communists and North Koreans who responded by killing every American within shooting range. In the case of Texas, it is claimed that a program of strict economy is being faithfully followed but a report of the State auditor contradicts this flatly by announcing that a new air-conditioning system is being in· stalled in an East Texas College which will cost the taxpayers of Texas $250,000. Ye gods. Why does a school have to be air-conditioned at any cost and, much less, a quarter of a million dollars? If the students in the piney woods of East Texas, or any other part of the State, can't manage to keep cool Continued on page 4 he Southern Conservative Savs It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIV!
