Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. 10 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, MARCH, 1959 No. 3 United States Senate Reflects Rise And Fall Of American Statesmanship American Type Communism Drives Respected Citizen From The Land Of His Birth The last sad chapter in the sordid saga of Communism-American style-as applied to Stanley Yankus, respected farmer of Dowagiac, Michigan, has been written. Mr. Yankus is selling his 100-acre poultry farm and moving his fam­ily to Adelaide, Australia, where he hopes to enjoy the freedom which once prevailed in the United States, but which has now been taken away from the American people. for years for the simple right to work his land, debts and support his family in the tradition ---""--..a.w~...a.O ..... ..._..,_....,,..,. since the beginning of the Republic. Bu.t he reckohed without the Cossacks in the Agricultural Adjust­ment Administration in Washington, D.C., who hovered over his farm like vUltures and who finally closed in and devoured him. Mr. Yankus never signed up with the wheat program framed by politicians in Washington who never farmed an acre, ploughed a furrow, nor milked a cow in their lives and who acquired their views on "col­lective farming" from the writings of Karl Marx who, from the quiet confines of the grave, posthumously fathered the agricultural program which now disgraces the statutes of the American Congress. He never accepted any subsidies under this collectivist program either and by all the rules of justice, common sense and fair play was exempt from its provisions. But the Washington Commissars figured otherwise and insisted on dictating how much wheat this Michigan farmer could plant regardless ot whether or not the amount allotted him was sufficient to feed his poultry from which he produced 52,000 dozen eggs per year to be mar· keted under our alleged American Free Enterprise System. They garnisheed his bank account, levied fines against him and hounded him as if he were a common criminal until he was financially ruined and could no longer fight back against the entrenched bureaucrats in Washington backed by millions of dollars of taxpayers' money in their campaign for collective farming in the United States. So Mr. Yankus has thrown in the towel and is moving to Australia. The prayers of all good Americans will go with him to his new home In a far-off land along with the hope that he may hereafter escape the persecution which attended him in his attempts to make an honest living from the soil In the land of his birth. It there is an iota of honesty, fairness and integrity left in the Con· gress of the United States, its members will not only repeal this Kremlin­inspired farm program but they will make financial restitution to this honorable, hard·working American who is being driven out of his country by their blundering, ineptitude and stupidity. Meantime, as Mr. Yankus and his family embark on their sad and lonely journey to their new home across the vast Pacific, he will be for­given if he recalls with bitterness in his heart that the American Republic was founded by colonists who left England to escape similar tyranny by King George and who risked the terrors and unc~rtainty of a new world In order that they might live forever under the blessed banner of freedom and enjoy the right to work and earn their living without interference by despotic rulers. Once the Senate of the Unitl!d States was universally regarded as the greatest and most incorruptible delib­erative body on earth. Adhering to the immortal con­cept that principles are eternal and never change, members of that exalted Chamber did not adjust their convictions to suit the expediency of the moment, sur· render their beliefs under p.olitical pressure nor swap their votes for the approval of organh:ed minority groups. In other days !he Senate stood for cautious, careful and time-tested legislotive oction which em­b<> died the fullest measure of prudence, wisdom and foresight which it is possible for devoted public servants ri ~ o their country'• security, solvency ond general well-being. Within Its hallowed walls, the na­t ion's problems were met and resolved by ded icated statesmen whose first a nd foremost obioctive was to preser·ve, at all costs, the priceless sovereignty, rights and freedoms which were the legacy of American citi­zens from those who had given their all to the founding of a motchless Republic. The Senate was the nation's anchor in times of storm, stress and strain and its checkrein against the usurpation of power by other arms of the Federal government and the brake which halted 111-consider .. d and unwise legislation originating in the House. Todt!y the most sickening evidence of political degeneracy and natiunal decay is reflected on the floor of the Senate where an appalling number of weak, irresolute and low-grade politicians switch their views and trade their votes as readily as a movie actress sheds her husband. In contrast to vast numbers in that once illustrious body who exacted tribute from all the world far their probity, stability and rectitude, an over­whelming majority of its members now command about the same measure of confidence and popular respect that is accorded the promoters of a floating crap game. The dying ~ords of the American Revolutionary General, Nathan Hale, reflected this wish: "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country." Patrick Henry's dedication to the cause of freedom was expressed in this phrase which has rung down through the corridors of time: "I know not what course others may take but as for me, give me liberty or give me death," and the early history of the American Republic was shot through with dedicated statesmanship, loyal service and patri­otic action on the part of its leaders which was without precedent and beyond compare. No American institution has ever been a more impregnable fortress and citadel of freedom in preserving the traditions and way of life of the American people and in upholding Constitutional Government, or has more jealously guarded the inherited rights and sovereignty of the citizens ot the Republic than has the United States Senate in days that are gone. {Continued on Page 21 Millions of Americans Think It-The Southern Conservative S-ays It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Ma<eh, 1959 As Between Corn And Harry Bridges And Jack Hall May Filth We'll Take Corn Be New United States Senators Legislative Committee To Probe Monteagle School The Highlander Folk School at Monteagle, Tennessee, which has been a center of controversy since it was founded in 1932, is finally going to be officially investigated. We are informed by those who keep up with such things that Red Foley, the star of Jubilee USA, country music on television each Saturday night, is the richest per­former in the entertainment world. Perhaps it should be explained to the world that a majority of the members of the Congress of the United States are not crazy. They just act like they are. One of the worst pieces of legislative folly in human history was witnessed when they reached out nearly to the North Pole and annexed the barren and ice-locked terri~ci·v of Alasl~a as an American State. But that was statesmGnly b'ehavior of an exalted order compared to the supreme madne£s wtlich has laid hold of them now and which motivates them in their determination to reach out half way across the ocean and bring in an Ori ~ntal area largely populated by Asiatic Com­munists as another unit or the American family of States. Claims that the school is a breed­ing ground for subversives will be looked into by a committee of the Tennessee Legislature, an action which was authorized in a resolu­tion passed overwhelmingly in both Houses. • If this is true, it proves that a lot of Americans still have whole­some and simple tastes as against those who go for the trashy pro­grams with which television sched~ ules are surfeited. Perhaps the most ch~ritable conclusion to be reached in excusing their un!:oeakable action!' 10 the matter is that most of them are merely pawns of International Planners and they don't realize that they are ~=~~~r t:~e~otr~ e~~~~r~~e t~~ t~~lii~~~~~r~~ To~ ~:~~c~r~d R~g~~~~~=~~ C i t i z e n s of Grundy County, where the school is located, have protested vigorously against hav­ing the school in their midst and are said to be almost solidly behind The objection to Country Music the proposed investigation. is that it is corny, and maybe it is, but if so, we will take the simple clean corn of the Ozarks any day in the week in preference to the disgusting, filthy interracial per­formances which are offered to the public on certain programs and es­pecially on Saturday and Sunday nights. This country does not need to import Harry Bridges' horde of Ha­waiian Communists in order to integrate and stabilize the Soviet con­spiracy against the United States. VIe already have plenty of our own home-grown variety who are performing the job adequately and if evi­dence is needed, we point to the strong sentiment for the annexation of Hawaii which un~American propaganda forces have built up in both Houses of the American Congress. However, even if the committee should find the charges against the institution well founded, it is not sure that anything will be done Since the notorious Harry Bridges and Jack Hall are leaders of the about it. Communist forces in the Islands, they will probably be illustrious addi­tions to the present liberal majority on the floor of the United States Senate. After all, there's always the Su­preme Court. UNITED STATES SENATE IConHnued from Page II In this editorial we do not mean to imply that there are not great, good and able men in the Senate today because there are, but they are greatly outnumbered. In recent years there have been scores of men whose loyalty, integrity and adherence to the principles of Constitutional Government could not be challenged. It was a coalition of such men from both major parties who, during the Roosevelt and Truman administrations, kept this nation from be­coming a total-rather than a partial-Collectivist State. Since that time their ranks have been tragically thinned by death, defeat and disgust, and by this we mean that some of them have been mowed down by the grim reaper, others were turned back at the ballot box and still others retired out of contempt for their colleagues' failure to live up to their oath to uphold the Constitution and defend the Ameri­can Republic against its enemies at home and abroad. Generally speaking, however, the debility, degeneracy and disinte· gration of the United States Senate first set in with the passage of the Seventeenth Amendment to the Constitution which permitted popular election of its members and as this action was taken at a time when International Socialism first began creeping into American politics, it was inevitable, perhaps, that down-grading of quality and lowering of stand­ards on the part of candidates for the Senate should result. The Senate was originally set up by the founders of the Republic as a sort of balance wheel or stabilizer against injudicious and unwise legis­lation by the House of Representatives and as an instrument to preserve and perpetuate the new-found freedom under which they hoped and be­lieved that American citizens would abide forever as a result of the break-away from the tyranny of hated English kings. It was figured that the members of the Lower House, who are elected according to the population of a State, might, because of sheer numbers, become victims of popular political whims of the moment and be swayed by partisan considerations of powerfu~ voting blocs to ~n exten~ that would disqualify them from representmg sound, responstble sentiment of the nation as a whole. (We do not believe, however, that the found~n~ fa_thers _even in their most pessimistic and cautious moments of anttctpatmg pttfalls of th~ future, were able to look ahead and visualize some of the sor~ speci­mens of humanity who today strut the floor of the House ~htle pro­posing legislation which must make early-day statesmen wnggle and squirm and turn over in their graves.) At any rate, the Senate was given a mandate to act as ~ sort of supervisor of legislative enactments by the Lower House whtch cc:mld only become effective with the Senate's approval and concurrence. Smce there were to be only two senators from each State, it was believed that the best available human material would be u~ilized in filli~g ~hese po­sitions of trust and that American statesmanship would attam tts fullest flower on the floor of the United States Senate. . . casional rotte~ apple~ in the barrel, the list of members of the United States Senate m .the distant.past represented the best brains and soundest ~~~~:h~~fl~u~a:~~n f~~~~~i~~s~:!r~n:f ':~~~~~~n:~:ch beset any country Du;~~g that period,· the prestige of the Senate was jealously upheld by the ctttzens of ~he sever~l States who sent only their ablest, best j0 .. formed and most mcorrupttble statesmen to serve as their spokesmen in the nation's top legislative assembly. Today, sadly, that is not true. Seat after seat in tho.t vast audito­rium is occupied by low-grade politicians who landed in that soft job because they were unable to make a living in competitive fields which offered comparable compensation and because they were able to Sweet· talk support from stupid and unthinking electorates by the simple ex­pedient of promising the voters everything under the sun which could be purchased with taxpayers' money. amo~gh~~~;' ~~tg~~~~ dti~~n~~~~~~o:r ~~e~~~:C~~i~~i!e~~~~~s c~~;~:'~ the ttme, energy and effort of its members and which have no moral or Constitutional right to a place on the legislative calendar of an American lawmaking body. . For instance, where men of giant intellect once pondered such m1ghty problems as the protection of American industry, preservation of the Rights of the Sovereign States and the peril of American interven­tion in foreign wars, mental midgets now wrestle and grope with such puny political and vote·getting considerations as paying farmers for not planting crops, compensating laborers for not working and raising the social status and improving housing conditions of winos in Skid Row. Other and more concrete evidence that the United States Senate is at its lowest achievement level in history is the fact that this nation is hopelessly floundering in debt, racial relations are more strained than at any time since Reconstruction Days and the dark clouds of war loom all over the world. And because weak leaders are the pallbearers of human liberty, the traditional rights and freedoms of the American people are fast drifting toward oblivion. Every two years one-third of the membership of the Senate comes up for re-election and it is on those occasions when American voters could clean out the dead wood and lift that body to the lofty heights It once enjoyed. With proper and organized effort, they could induce men of principle, of conviction and of integrity to offer themselves for this service and then vote them into office. The Senate of the United States is Constitutionally the most power­ful weapon of restraint in the American system and if, once again, its members should be those who are firm and unyielding in their convic­tions, possessed of undivided loyalty to this country and concerned pri· marily, not in the welfare of a1ien peoples, but in the safety, security and perpetuation of this Christian Republic, we could afford to let Marxism continue to sway the ~ two other branches of Government and the two major political parties-and this nation would still survive. It was especially the desire of those who wr~te the Constitution, and under whose glorious provisions a vast emptre was lat~r to be carved that future lawmakers would steer as far away as posstble from the co~cepts of the out-worn, decadent and patern~listic ~?vernments of Europe in framing legislation unde~. which Am~nc~n ~1t1~ens were to live and operate their economic, pohttcal and soctal mstttutJO~S. For approximately a century and a half these exalted tdeals were carried out and although-the institution being human-there were oc- In summation, it is within the province of the United States Senate either to revive, restore and reactivate surrendered principles just as the chisel of a sculptor brings forth a spirit from the rock, to or provide the epitaph which the hand of time will write on the tombstone of a dead Republic. M•rch, 1959 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page l Christianity Is Found Without Defenders In Its Hour Of Need Communists Not Only Refuse To Pay U.S. Debt But Deny They Owe It Following a somewhat belated disclosure that professors in the ~~~~~!i~d 0~r;~~~~~;r:co~¥i~~~~ their classes at religion as ignorant superstition, members ot the Texas Legislature introduced a bill which would require the faculty at State­supported colleges to take a re­ligious loyalty oath. The ink was hardly dry on the measure when violent opposition to the bill from influential sources developed. This opposition did not c o m e from actual card-carrying Commu­nists, as might be supposed. That element remained strangely quiet, possibly on the assumption that more powerful and effective friend­ly forces who always come to the rescue would not fail them in this f n s t a n c e, and their deductions proved correct. The opposition to the religious loyalty oath designed to keep athe­Ism from being taught in State ed~ ucational institutions came from so-called Ministers of the Gospel who would normally be regarded as staunch advocates or Christi­anity and believers in the Gospel ot Jesus Christ. that any teacher who propounds modern interpretation of the Bible might justly be accused of atheism because he would be "shaking childhood beliefs of the student." It was suggested that faith in edu­cators was sufficient and is "more effective than oaths." These were the views of repre­sentatives of five of the large Pro­testant churches in one Texas city and since religious thinking is now largely collective and is dictated by the National Council of Church­es whose. leadership is strongly op­posed to loyalty oaths of all types, it is predicted that similar senti­ment will be found to be prevalent among religious leaders in other Texas cities and that the bill will be defeated. It is significant that the modern ministers who have surrendered their sacred role as defenders of the Christian faith and enlisted in the fight for the establishment of Marxisin in the United States ac­quired, in the transition, a tremen­dous amount of political strength and their combined influence is re­garded as capable of defeating this and similar legislation not only in Texas but in any S t ate in the Union. Under the circumstances, it is expected that professors at the University of Texas will continue to instill their godless philosophy in the plastic minds of immature tudents without ear. .of int rfer· ence by the religious leaders of the State. It develops t h a t the Russians have not only no intention of pay­ing back the billions"of dollars they owe us. but they even deny that they owe us a cent. This information was carried in a press dispatch from Washington on February 21. Back in the '40's when this coun­try was engaged in World War II and the Communists were our al­leged friends and allies, the New Deal administration in power made "loans" to the Bolsheviks of. vast sums, the exact amount of which may never be known to the tax­payers who furnished the money. Besides the cash there was the $263,000,000 worth of steam and hydro-electric plants, $65,000,000 worth of chemic a l equipment, $900,000,000 worth of copper and other strategic supplies given to the Communists by Harry Hopkins who held no elective position but who seemed to have unlimited au­thority to dispose of our war ma­terials. According to Undersecretary of State Dillon, the United States had offered to settle for $2,600,000,000 and seven or eight years ago the Communists offered to compro­mise by paying us $300,000,000. Then, apparently, the matter was dropped. In a closed·door session ot the House Foreign Affairs Committee Dillon is reported, in this same press release, as testifying that while Deputy Premier Mikoyan was here recently the matter was called to his attention but the Bolshevik said that as far as he was con~ cerned he didn't think the Soviets had any obligation to pay anything. The vast grants of funds to the Soviets during Roosevelt's admini~ stration was the beginning of the program to take money away from American taxpayers and give it to fore ign governments all over the world and it was this policy appar~ ently which first gave the Com· munists the idea that Americans are fools and simpletons and they have treated us accordingly since that lime. COMMUNIST-INSPIRED RACIAL RIOTS BREAK OUT IN AFRICA Those who cannot see that the r a c i a 1 integration movement i.s Integrationists Achieve Part Of Their Objective In Little Rock ommunist-inspked and is world­wide in its scope, are reminded of the racial riots in the British pro­tectorate of Blantyre, Nyasaland in Southeast Africa recently. According to United Press Inter­national, British Royal Air Force planes had to bomb the rioters with tear gas in order to quell the dis­turbance, while g r o u n d troops opened fire on the mob. Bombing Quiets Down The silence concerning the At4 lanta bombing case has been thick enough to cut with a knife since those charged with the crime were acquitted after a jury trial. Communists and t h e i r fellow travellers who advocate the social mixing of Whites and N e g r o e s were u n a b I e to integrate Little Rock public schools which were closed rather than take this dis~ graceful step but they are not alto~ gether without accomplishments in the Arkansas city. On February 27, Arkansas State Police arrested more than a dozen White an d Negro teenagers and smashed what was described as an Interracial sex and dope ring which Governor F au b u s described as ' 4some of the fruits of integration." Police said that some ot the girls picked up admitted sex orgies be~ tween White girls and Negro boys In rooms which served as head­quarters for the ring. Mongrellzers who failed to get Integration of the schools there will probably be consoled in having achieved some of their ends at any rate. The American people are re~ ported to have spent $40,000,000,- 000.00 on sports and recreation last year. Perhap! if they had spent a portion of that amount on patriotic projects, they would be more likely to be free to partici~ pate i-n sports and recreation in the years to come. It does not seem quite bright to pay the FBI to flush out Commu­nists and furnish evidence to co-n­vict them and then pay the Su­preme Court to turn them loose on us again, in the opinion of a Dallas lady, MiLdred Bennett Bale. But whoever claimed that those who frame Washington policies are bright? We've know-n inmates of a feeble-minded institution who were smarter. A friend in Dallas reports a pat­riotic writer as remarking: "I would rather have an article of mine in the Southern Conservative for no monetary reward than in the Saturday Evening Post at their highest rate." If we only had the 1pace we would reproduce aU the grand material that is submitted to us. But after we get through popping off with our own editorial remarks, there'J not much room left for good stuff. Two p e r s o n s were reported killed at Lilongwe in the central p r o v i n c e of Nyasatand where police riot squads turned out in force, another at Chileka and 16 were injured in the rioting there. All crowds in the area were dis­persed and police seized vast quan­tities of guns and ammunition w h i c h had been stocked by the blacks. Communists are known to have long been active in Africa where savages from the jungle are pour­ing into towns and cities with de­mands for "racial equality" in schools, churches, factories and other places of employment. It is the same type of campaign which is being carried on in the United States with the exception that in Africa, unlike the United States, there are very few weak­minded white persons who have If you are puzzled because more succumbed to Communist propa­and more white erttertainers are ganda for mingling the races and singing Negro spirituals, the an- who are working for mongreliza- ~rae: t~ f!~!:Ie~~fteisP~:;;,:t wti7~ .tio_n_. ~------- colored in preparation for the new world where all skins will be of the same hue. Franklin D. Roose­velt said that nothing happens and that everything was ~'planned that way" and so it is. When a Negro makes a speech in behalf of hi.s own people, the press calls it . Civil Rights; when a white man does the same thing, it's ~'racial prejudice" says a Dal­las woman patriot. It is not believed that those who actually did the bombing will ever be brought to trial. The case has all the earmarks of an old Spanish custom in Communist c i r c 1 e s where Reds commit a crime which they hope will be blamed on pa­triots and engender resentment against them. Sometimes these plans backfire as was apparently the case in Atlanta. While such outrages should cer .. tainly be punished by law, we hope those in Congress who are trying to create more Federal legislation to punish those who should be amenable to the State, make a thorough investigation before they vote. They may be surprised at what they find. Any American-man or woman - who advocates abolishing the Un-American Activities Commit~ tee of Congress or any other agen­cy concerned with the security of this country is an enemy of the United States and should be dealt with accordingly. There can be only one reason why any person should take such position and that is because they are defenders of Communism-and Communism is a deadly threat to the survival of the Republic.

Asks Words Of Praise Which Smooth The Way For Us Congress T 0 Curb Supreme Court In the type of work which we are trying to do, there is little com­pensation other than that which comes from the approval and grati­tude of those of our fellow Ameri­cans who have not been tarred with the black pitch of "liberal· ism." In the June, 1954, edition of the Southern Conservative, right after the Supreme Court of the United States launched its massive attack on the Constitution and on States' Rights with its school integration ruling, we said editorially in part: "Traditionally, members of the Supreme Court of the United States have been set apart by common consent as men possessed of great dig­nity, of a deep and profound knowledge of Constitutional law and of that certain essential quality of personal integrity which insured that external influence, political pressure or partisan consideration would not be re­flected in rulings from the Bench. Currently, that body, through a long, careful and deliberate process of elimination, is composed of low-grade political hacks whose slanted opinions are formulated with the objective of establishing social trends, appeasing minority groups and influencing election returns. Heading it is a cheap California demagogue who didn't look back when he got a chance to swap a rigged judicial decision for a plushy lifetime job." Ours was only one of the many protests offered by alarmed Ameri­can citizens who watched with horror as the Court handed down one decision after another which threatened the national security and the abolishment of the revered American principle of States' Rights. If it had not been for the thou­sands of letters which have flood­ed our mail for the almost ten years of existence of the Southern Conservative from Americans in every walk of life and in every State of the Union, giving us heart­ening encouragement, we should probably have folded up long ago. Occasionally we receive one which goes overboard and flatters us far beyond what we deserve, but we eat it up and pretend that we are worthy of such commenda­tion. the wind but it takes an eagle to fly CitiZens concerned about national security and the preservati~:m of Con- A help/en sparrow can drift with I ... But our protests didn't mean anything. We were merely American against the storm. stitutional Government. Ours were only small voices crymg in the wilderness. Such a one is the following from a Seattle, Washington, business man dated February 18: "I'm in receipt of the January THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES: The po•en not delegeted to the United States by the Condihrtion, nor prohibited byiftotheStatesarereservedtothe Staturespeetively,ortothepeople. Shrewd Maneuver By Which Democrats Win Elections If there are those who wondered why California, which is normally a Republican State, went so heav­ily Democratic in the last election, the secret has now been revealed. One Miss Katie Louchheim, vice chairman and director of Women's Activities of the Democratic Na­tional Committee, in the January­February edition of Democratic Di­gest tells how the trick was turned, at least in one voting place in Southern California. "A Southern California precinct worker reports that she always takes a big bag of marshmallows to the polling place," writes 'Miss Louchheim. "Each child accom­panying a voting mother is offered marshmallows and told: 'Tell your playmates they can get marshmal­lows, too, If they bring their mothers to vote'." There have been many reasons advanced from time to time why American citizens should exercise the right of franchise but perhaps never such a brilliant one as the proposal to stuff the children of the voter with marshmallows. We think, however, that the sys-tem could be improved. · Personally, we would have of~ fered all-day suckers, since marsh­mallows go down the hatch in one gulp and might not keep the little darling pacified until the mother gets through marking the ballot for the Democratic donors. But an ail­day sucker is good for hours and would at least keep the peace until the tired mama got home, got her girdle off and started wondering if the effort was worth all the trouble and if future results would justify her in swapping her ballot for a bag of marshmallows. indic?~e~~b~~~~ ~~P~~~h~s~~ari ~!~a~~ f~~~cf:1~rs tater, however, the ~i~~b:~do~~~= ;~~~irn~~~~o~::~~:~ your front-page article entitled 'Is On that date the American Bar Association, from whose vast reser- the American Republic Heading for voir of outstanding legal talent members of the Court were once drawn, the Cemetery of Dead Nations?', passed a resolution at the Chicago meeting of its House of Delegates but before going further must caJiing on Congress to step in with tough remedial legislation to stem pause long enough to commend the tide of rulings from the High Court which are endangering the nation- you for your masterful indictment al security. of the terrible wrongs that are be- The 50-page resolution, prepared by the ABA's special committee ing perpetrated against our people, on Communist tactics and strategy, charged the Supreme Court has our nation, and our states by our weakened the nation's security by its rulings on 24 cases involving ac- elected representatives in Wash-cused Communists or ant i-subversive legislation. ington.

Recently these impudent and ar­rogant enemy agents have been standing on the street corners there and openly soliciting signatures to a petition for the abolishment of the Un-American Activities Com­mittee of Congress, a propos a I which Jimmy Roosevelt has been sponsoring in Congress. Surely. this bold subversive ac­tion by the Los Angeles degener­ates will . impress the American people with the indisputable fact that the thinking of members of the Supreme Court and the Cali­fornia congressman is in complete accord with that oL the Soviet sympathizers on the West Coast. Here's an example of statesman­ship as applied in this fair land of ours. There is a law, which the Supreme Court has just upheld, which prevents electric light and power companies from claiming tax exemption for ads they put in newspapers in which they inform the American people of the dis­crimination of Congress in favor of TV A and other Socialistic pow­er projects. But the Socialist co­operatives like TV A are tax-ex­empt in all their operations and don't pay any taxes at all. The vagaries of politics are forcefully illustrated in the case of Wisconsin . It seems incredible that the people of that State who were permitted a United States Senator as vigorous, aggressive and dynamic as the incomparable Joe McCarthy could have ever settled for the colorless person who followed him. out the ages that have passed, so it is altogether possible that we have another Joan of Arc right here among us in the person of yourself who will eventually save America. · "Of course; should America fall, all the rightist nations in the world will fall with her and the world will once more be shrouded in dark­ness.

What worries us is when are they going to get around to the Communists, our present enemies. So far as we can find out, there is not a single Nazi in a government job, in the school systems or in church groups while Communists, or Communist sympathizers, are thick as f leas. And still Hollywood carries on its relentless battle against an enemy which does not exist, while clos­ing its eyes to one which threatens every day to take this country over.

Face On February 16, the Associated,--------­Press carried the story of a doomed Swiss village c a I I e d Herbriggen which will be destroyed when a spring thaw sends a million tons of rock, e a r t h and ice hurtling down from a mountain peak 3,000 feet above. This frozen mass is on top of the Nadelhorn Mountain and will become a thundering avalanche when it reacheS the edge of the precipice toward which it has been slowly creeping. Most of the villagers are re­signed to losing their homes and belongings and have moved out of the danger area, but some of them have refused to budge and are praying that the catastrophe may be a v e r t e d by Providence who, they believe, may cause the ava­lanche to split up and fall harm­lessly in many directions. The incident has reminded us of the situation here in the United States where a similar condition exists. Anxious Americans realize that a terrible avalanche of subversion, composed of the enemies of Con­stitutional Government, is hanging above the nation they love and that, unless a Merciful Providence or an awakened citizenship inter­venes, their country faces the same danger of total destruction which threatens the peaceful little village in a Swiss valley. From a long-time personal friend: uNot only from reading the Southern Conservative but from personal acquairttance with you, I have learned that you are familiar with the unsat:ory records of many Americans whose sub­versive connections are unknown to the general public. Often I have mentioned the name of some well known personality to you only to be greeted with stony silence on your part which I have learned means disapproval. Tell me this: Does it not make you unhappy to know these things about so many Americans?" Of course it makes us unhappy but our unhappiness stems from the fact a~at there are so many traitors to the country to which we all owe so much. We not only wish we didn't know these things. We wish they were not true. ' 1There are two ways of insuring that people are~ ignorant. One 'is teaching them nothing and the other is to teach them only those selected facts that will lead them to incorrect conclusions under their own intellectual steam. The latter method is the one we have used. The selected facts that have infected the American mind are those taught in the high schools concerning the sins of our capital­istic economy. These are the a!­sassins of self-reliance in the Am­erican character."-Excerpt from article by Fred G.

The principal measure which is said to be more likely to pass than any other is the Kennedy bill which is little more than a joke insofar as any restrictive measures on labor unions are concerned. Kennedy is a slick politician who has only one objective and that is to get the Democratic nomination as President of the United States on the Fair Deal ticket. His principal support is expected to come from labor u' n i o n s to whom he has deferred and kow­towed since he first entered public life, and there is not a ghost of a chance that he would take any action that Js not privately ap­proved by Walter Reuther. The Republicans, also with an eye on the labor union vote in 1960, have a bill which is approved by the Eisenhower administration but it is little better than the Ken­nedy measure. Like it or not, we have to face the fact that there are ti.ot enough men in either House of Congress who will dare defy the AFL-CIO and put through a bill which pro­tects the public from the strong­arm tactics of labor unions. After all, how many Barry Gold­waters can you count in Congress who will wade right into Reuther and his goons and whip them down to size? The Friends Service Committee which has a. long and unsavory rec­? rd of ~okmg subversive speakers mto vanous towns and cities of the United States, was sponsor of - a con~er~nce. in Houston recently at their Institute of International Relations." One of the speakers was the Russian delegate to the United Na­tions, Buorov, who is reported to have shocked even some of the Ieft-wingers present at the meet· ing when he roared "No" when asked from the audience if he be­lieved in God. The attitude of the Russian Com­munist in itself is not amazing for the atheism of the Soviets is well known to all the world. The shock-ing aspect of the matter lies in the fact that this conference at which a Russian Communist was a par­ticipant was held in a Protestant Church of Houston where, presum­ably, the Gospel of Jesus is taught -. to the communicants rather than the Social Gospel of Karl Marx. The church where the Friends Service Committee was allowed to hold their meeting and present their Russian Communist to the audience was the First Christian Church of Houston of which Rev. John C. Knowles is pastor. Page 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Americans Getting Fed Up Movement To Enable Criminals To On 'Brotherhood' Racket Escape Punishment Being Pushed Slowly, but surely, the Ameri­can people are realizing that the "Brotherhood" propaganda which has swept the country and caused the setting aside of certain days and certain weeks in which to ob­serve "Brotherhood" is a sinister movement which was "planned that way" by internationalists and one-world mongrelizers. Back of this unholy gospel is racial abnormality which is to be ultimately extended to the black peoples ot the earth with the re­sultant inter-breeding of the races In the hope of submerging white people into one degenerate global mass of half-breeds. Every Christian has the respon­sibility to be kind to his fellow men in normal and casual contacts but there is no obligation whatever to te:tm up with those of every race, creed and color who may, or may not, be dedicated enemies of this great country of ours and plotting for its destruction. Those who do so are rank hypo­crites and in their hearts they know they are. We believe rank and file Amer­icans are becoming fed up with the "Brotherhood" racket which was carefully planned and thought out by those who have an ulterior mo­tive in the movement and who are far smarter than the stupid victims they have enticed into the trap. Those who are brimming over with "love" and looking for a place to bestow it might devote some of it to their country which is sad­ly in need of a little devotion at this particular time of national peril. Major Criminals In The United States Are Of Foreign Origin 1 The crime rate is many times higher in the United States than in any country on earth, and is in­creasing almost by the minute. In nine cases out of ten, those who are engaged in underworld ac­tivities and who comprise the hood­lum element of the country have foreign names that are all but un­pronounceable. Which reminds us that we have 3,000,000 to 5,000,000 illegal aliens in the United States and not only are they not being deported, but the Reds in this country are con­stantly trying to break down our immigration bars and allow addi­tional thousands of undesirables to enter our borders to add to the criminal element already here. How is it and by what authority do we consider that our politicians in Wa5hington are "world leaders" and capable of managing the whole universe when we can't even rid our own country of the interna­tional trash which constantly floats across the ocean to land on our shores? Until we clean the filth from our - own premises, we should pipe down on instructions to other na­tions as to how they should con­duct their affairs. Like a heavy percentage of the movements which have been start­ed in this country in the past dec­ade or two, the one to abolish the death penalty in various States is of Communist origin. T h e r e is nothing that fits in better with the plans of the Commies than to have the criminal element of American citizenship turned loose to run at large and commit more crimes. They shoot their own criminals without a trial, but favor laws in this country to exempt murderers, thieves and rapists from paying the supreme penalty. After all, the more lawless persons there are in a country, the easier it is to spread the evil seeds of Communism. Hollywood has, naturally, gotten into the act and has released a production entitled "I Want To Live," based on the life and execu­tion of a cold-blooded murderess. Of course murderers want to live; so do those victims of such mur­derers who are shot down without mercy. Another advocate of abolish­ment of c a p i t a I punishment is "Lawyer Welch" of Massachusetts who hammed it all over the place during the McCarthy hearings and evidently acquired the idea that he possessed histrionic ability. He has appeared on television in recent months pleading, not for abolish­ment or lessening of crime, but abolishment of the electric chair for those who commit crime. Self-Appointed Masters Must Be Reduced To Public Servants How can the people back home lick Communism by trusting in God and in individual effort if Con­gress continues its 25-year record ot betrayal by voting us deeper and deeper into spiritual, moral and financial bankruptcy by way of more bureaucratic enslavement, in­quires A. G. Heinsohn of Knoxville, Tennessee, who has a long record of propounding disconcerting ques­tions to politicians which these politicians are unable to answer. •·set us an example by removing your party nose-ring," Mr. Hein­sohn challenges the bureaucrats. "Stand up on the floor of Congress and announce your belief that the moon was hung by God-not by politicians or bureaucrats - and that you consider the survival of your country more imoortant than your re-election or the success of an unprincipled political party. "Prove your repentance by call­ing for the orderly reoeal of the Socialist- Communist I a w s that have robbed us of our freedom such as the Federal income tax, wage and hour control, control of agriculture, social security, public housing, foreign throwaways, civil rights, Tennessee Vatley Authority, United Nations and other Socialist devices and introduce legislation that would re-impose Constitution­al limitations of power so that to­day's self-aopointed masters would be reduced to their intended role ot public servants. u Sending Troops To Little Rock Was Disgraceful In Any Event According to the Washington bureau of the Houston Post, troops were sent into Little Rock in 1957 on request o( Little Rock mayor, Woodrow Mann. According to the Post article, Mann sent a telegram to the Pres­ident on September 24, 1957 urg­ing the immediate need for Fed­eral troops in the Arkansas city on the goounds that mob violence was imminent. While Mann is said to be the type who would have no scruples in demanding Federal troops to handle a strictly local matter, there are many who doubt that troops were sent to Little Rock simply be­cause he requested it. After all, a mayor has no authority to call out Federal troops. Only a governor of a sovereign State can make this request. Since bitter resentment against sending troops there to intimidate the citizens with bayonets has been nation-wide, and not confined to the South, it is believed that this latest alibi blaming Mayor Mann is merely a ruse to take the ad­ministration off the hot-spot. Why Are Our Relations With Philippines Now Strained? The relations between the Phil­ippines and the United States which have always been on an ex­tremely friendly basis are now re­ported in the press to be definitely strained. So far as we have noted, this condition has not been blamed pub­licly on Charles E. Bohlen who was recalled as Ambassador to Russia and sent to the Philippines as a representative of this country in the Islands. However, remembering the bit­ter opposition expressed by Sen­ator Joseph R. McCarthy to Bohlen and in view of the fact that later events have proved that the Wis­consin senator was always right in his deductions, perhaps the re­lations between Manila and Wash­ington would be improved if Boh­len were recalled and someone else sent to represent us in this Pacific outpost. 11This is a Senate of equals, of men of individual honor and per­sonal character and of absolute independence. We know no mast~ ers, we acknowledge no dictators. This is a halt for mutual consulta­tion and discussion." - Daniel Webster in a speech to the Senate on January 26, 1830. Oh yeah? It was then, of course, but he should see it now. As to ·~dictaton" what about the AFL-C/0, the NAACP, the NEA and the ADA? March, 1959 Sympathy of the World Goes to Secretary of State There is universal sympathy for John Foster Dulles who was strick~ en with cancer for the second time and prayers for his recovery are going up all over the world. He is as much a casualty as if he had fallen in battle for his de­votion to his work has caused him to physically exert himself beyond the call of duty and beyond human endurance. Personally, we think most of the trips he made over. the world were unnecessary and that we would be better off if he had stayed at home, which makes the sacrifice of his health all the more tragic. - However, he was working for an administration which is Interna~ tionalist in its scooe and as con­cerned in the welfare of foreign nations as in the security of the American Republic and his loyalty to his employers is commendable. Great concern is felt over his successor in the event it is found that he is unable to continue to carry on. With the President's almost un­failing penchant for appointing the worst possible person to high of­fice, alarm over the situation is understandable. Florida Is Suffering From Extremely Weak Leadership The Dade County School Board of Miami, apparently succumbing to Red influence in that area, has ordered four Negroes to be admit~ ted to white schools next Septem~ ber, but several members of the Florida legislature have other ideas about the matter. The action of the b o a r d was handled in characteristic manner by those who advocate integration. The order was passed at a routine meeting and no advance informa­tion had been given that the subject was to come up. Those who are familiar with Communist instruction concerning integration will remember that it is advised that the step be taken quietly so as to escape public no­tice and thereby engender as little opposition as possible. However, Influential members ot both the House and Senate at Tal~ lahassee insist that Florida schools which have always been white will remain so. The great State of Florida has been handicapped by the weak leadership ot Governor Leroy Col~ lins who is neither this nor that and who wiggles and squirms and twists whenever the subject is mentioned. And when he is faced with a showdown, he appoints a "com­mission to study the matter'' which, in our book, is the coward~ Jy way out of any situation. N o bo d y needs to "study" whether or not white and colored s t u d e n t s should be mixed · in schools. All informed Americans who know what the experience ot integrated schools has been, know that they should not be mixed. March, 1959 Communist Party And Supreme Court Are In Unison On Integration Concerned Americans who have been amazed at the similar positions of the Su­preme Court and the American Commu­nist Party in behalf of integration of the schools in the South should not fail to read a government document recently re­leased. While the document referred to makes no reference to such similarity and merely develops testimony from witnesses under oath in a routine manner which it has been pursuing for years, only a blind, person, after reading the records would fail to note that Communists and the Court are in accord on the subject. This document is called "Communist Infiltration and ~ctivities in the South" and reports hearings before the Com­mittee on Un-American Activities, Hous& of Representatives, Eighty-Fifth Congress held in Atlanta, Georgia, last July. At thi:i hearing, one impudent, arrogant and dirty Communist after another ap­peared before the Committee and, al­though the Committee had documented evidence that they had been a part of the Communist apparatus for years, they refused to answer questions and prac­tically defied the Committee to do any­thing about it in view of Supreme Court rulings in their favor. One brazen Communist agent who had previously been identified as a Party member by an undercover agent of the FBr, didn't even bother to take the Fifth amendment when asked if he were a Communist but replied Instead: "I am nd.iq on the Watkin•, Sweezy, Xoe­nigsbergandotherdeclsionsof t heUnited States Supreme Court which protect my right and the Constitution as they inter­pret the Constitution of the United States, ::~~::!~~n~y right to private belief and At another point a letter was produced by the Committee written by the same wit­ness which had been broadcast widely ask­ing those addressed to oppose the passage of bills in the 85th Congress curbing the Supreme Court's rulings in favor of Com­munists in which he said in part: '1t should be pointed out that these bills to validate State sedition laws are only a part of the attack on the U.S. Supreme Court. The real and ultimate target is the court decision outlawing segregation. Won't you write your two senators and your Congressmen asking them to oppose S. 654, 2646 and H.R. 977. Also ask them to stand firm against all efforts to curb the Supreme Court ... " When he had finished reading this let­ter in its entirety, Committee Counsel asked the witness if he was a member of the Communist Party at the time he signed that Jetter to which the witness replied, "I refuse to answer on U1e same ground previously stated" (Supreme Court decisions). A character identified as a Communist by the FBI agent refused to answer every question propounded to him including whether or not he was a Communist, whether he was editor of :The Southern News Letter" (a publication of propa­ganda for integration of the races) and even where he was born. Testimony was developed showing that Communists with degrees from colleges a nd universities are sent lnto the South to work in menial positions in factories and industrial plants where they carry on thcir activities as "colonizers" for the Party. One woman "colonizer" identified by the FBI undercover agent as high in Communist Party circles admitted that THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE At Least There's No Doubt Where This Candidate Stands We do not know Mrs. Kate Walker of Oklahoma City, but we have been informed that she owns prop=rty and conducts a business in a district of her home town which, if Urban Renewal legislation now be­fore the Oklahoma legislature passes, will be taken away from her and used for whatever purpose Urban Renewal overlords may decide is best. .

Since theft is now legalized by the Urban Renewal Law, I want to get in the city government and steal the people blind. If I am elected Mayor under Urban Renewal, I can use the law of Eminent Domain to condemn any property I want, seize it and sell it for profit. I will condemn homes, throw the people out in the street and pro­mote Juvenile Delinquency. I can be bought! If anyone sees any goodies such as their neighbor's property that they covet, they can come to me with a thousand dollars or so and I'll see that they get it. I am a business woman. I have been in the grocery business, the real estate bus-iness, the laurldry business, the decorating business and failed in all of them. I am now in the Junk Business and doing fine, but I am greedy. I want more money. I am a mean character! I have divorced three bums and I'm glad! I have been accused of being a Communist, threatened disinheritance for voting the Republican Ticket, and am registered a Democrat. i< i< i< I am a family woman. I have an Irish terrier dog and an idiot sister. If I am elected Mayor, I'll see that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer! Why be quaint? On with progress. Down with honesty!

And yet she was working as a -spinner in a Southern tutile mill, and changing jobs every few months in order to contact the largest possible number of persons. A ma.n who was a graduate of the Uni­versity of North Carolina and had had graduate work at Washington and Lee and whom the FBI agent had identified as a Communist "colonizer" was em­ployed as a bobbin boy in a cotton mill, a floor sweeper, a sheet metal worker and a rubber grinder. In refusing to say whether or not he was a Communist he pleaded the "Watkins ruling." One female Communist with a very foreign name accused the committee of having called her to testify because "of the strong position that I have taken for a number of yea rs on the question of integration in the South." For this charge she was vigorously rebuked by commit­tee counsel. Any American who doubts the Com­munist origin of the Integration move­ment, should send for this report and read it. Every good American should read "The Pentagon Case0 by "Col. Victor J. Fox'' which is obvious­ly not the real name of the author. Although the aut~or claims (probably for purposes of preventing libel) that the book is fiction, any student of Commun­ism knows tha.t this claim is fic­tion and that the material in it is authentic. A group of mothers of the air­men who were shot down by Communists on last September 2 have written the President and asked him to go to Russia to try and find out the fate of their boys. They point out that he should risk his own personal safety for those men who risked so much for all of us.

Carter of that State, who was put on the payroll at a salary of $11,873.20 per year. When he is not attending classes at a Washington university he will act as public relations counsel for his old man who, it would seem off ~hand, is going to have serious need of improved public relations and especially with his constituents back home, judging from reactions in the Iowa press. Equally notorious is the case of the wife of freshman Congressman Leonard Wolf, also of Iowa, who has been put on the payroll for $13,334.00 per year as her husband's office assistant. But in this case perhaps Congressman Wolf is smarter than might appear on the surface and maybe he had a method in his madness. With this cozy little sum tucked away in her sock, it's a cinch his old lady won't be tempted to frisk his pockets in the middle of the night in order to get spending money. the proposed procedure is unques- Although declaring privately that they were shocked over the situ­tioned and that Constitutional law- ation, members of the House who have not been guilty of engaging in yers have pronounced it as being this small-time con game, expressed the opinion that nothing could be specifically authorized by the Con- done about it. stitution. Article 2, Section 1, Paragraph 2 of the Constitution provides: ''Each State shall appoint in such a manner as the legislatures there­of may direct a number of electors equal to the whole number of sen­ators and representatives to which the State may be entitled in Con­gress." , This means that the State legis­latures may elect or appoint elec­, tors in any way they decide and the Congressman Omar Burleson of Texas, Chairman of the House Ad­ministration Committee, is quoted in the press as predicting that his committee would take no action and added: "The relation of one Con­gressman to another is a highly sensitive thing." That's all right, brother, but what about the "sensitivity" of the taxpayers who happen to be the big stiffs who are providing the money which their public servants in Washington are strewing around like confetti?

If they are determined to enact class legislation and discriminate in favor of one group, how about doing something for the poor saps who are patients of the physicians and surgeons and who have to sometimes spend months and years getting square on their doctor bills? We simply adore members of the medi.cal fraternity and nothing on earth is so satisfying as to see the face of the family physician ap .. pear in the door in time of illness. But all this aside, we can't see why our statesmen in Washington insist on trying to make them wards of the government and treat­ing them as if they were all on the verge of going to the poorhouse. Personally, we don't know of a medical man anywhere who is on relief, seJJing pencils on the street corner or who faces burial in the potter's field when he dies. In fact, all those we know any­thing about are financially in the class of brokers, bankers and mas­ter plumbers and would be in bet­ter position to stake our insolvent government to a few thousand bucks. rather than the other way around.
