THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government-
Vol. 10 FORT WORTH, TEXAS, APRIL, 1959 No.4
Swelling Power of Federal Government
Is Driving Nails In Freedom's Coffin
DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION HEAD ALL SET
TO HIT SOUTHERNERS BELOW THE BELT
According to reports which come to us, Southern delegates to the
so·called Democratic Convention at Los Angeles on July 11 are going
to be about as welcome as a polecat at a picnic.
Paul Butler of Indiana who is chairman of the outfit and whom the
Create: endowed with a big voice but not an intellect to match it, has
already shouted to high heaven that the South is not needed in the
Presidential campaign of 1960 and has practically invited Southerners
to get out of the Party and stay out.
In addition, there is a character out in Los Angeles who wields practically
unlimited authority in Fair Deal circles in California. He will
have charge of convention arrangements and, according to well founded
reports, is going to exert his full authority in embarrassing any poor
white trash from the South who may show up for the festivities.
At any rate, according to those who are observing the buildup for
the convention in the City of the Angels, this Ziffren person is carefully
laying his plans with a view of forcing through a type of Civil Rights
plank which the Southern delegates not only cannot digest but can't
Perhaps it should first be explained (as if everybody didn't already
know) that Los Angeles is fast becoming the black capital of the West
Coast and colored people are swarming into the Southern California
metropolis in about the same proportion that White people are flocking
out of Washington, D.C.
Galleries of the auditorium at political conventions have been known
to exert great influence on the action on the first floor, even including
the selection of candidates, and at Los Angeles this section of the con·
vention hall is at least expected to contribute to the adoption of a Civil
Rights plank which will relegate White people to their proper place in
human society and to which the Supreme Court of the United States
has already consigned them.
It has been suggested that as a result of this frame-up, there will be
quite a let-down in the quality of Southern delegates attending the convention
this time, but we doubt it.
Of course there are many honorable and self-respecting Southerners
who, realizing how the cards are stacked, will refuse to attend.
But, on the other hand, there are an overwhelming number who are
so hide-bound and so hipped on "party regularity" and on retaining
committee chairmanships that they will go right along and take the insults
lying down and even if it were decided to go out into Skid Row
and whistle in a wino as the candidate, they would fall in line and vote
the ticket straight.
It is the sacred obligation of every American who has something
to say and knows how to say it to protest the official behavior of Washington
politicians in wasting taxpayers' money and suppressing their
freedom. It may not do any good but it's certain that silence and apathy
are not going to help the situation.
The basic philosophy of those who tore their roots from
English soil and journeyed across an ocean in search
of freedom was that in the new country of their adoption
every voter would be a Sovereign and every citizen
a King. Supreme authority for the citizen and limited
power for those who govern was the bedrock on which
they were later to erect a Constitutional Government
of the people, by the people and for the people and
which they believed would endure so long as human
beings loved liberty and rejected tyranny as an abomination
in the sight of God and man. This lofty and noble
sentiment of early American patriots was crystallized
at Co.1cord where "once the embattled farmers stood
and fired the shot heard around the world.'' Much water
has gone over the dam in the intervening years and
every step of tho rugged path between 1775 and 1959
has been marked by a determined fight on the part of
o o o • GH.en
and to wrest from the peop le control of the pub lic p urse.
Centralized authority has now reached the peak of all
ages in the national capital and un~ess outrased Ameri ..
cans launch a peaceful but firm revolution to regain
their rights from power-mad rulers in Washinqton, triggered
by the same zeal and fervor which ins;>ired the
Men of Concord to repel an English tyrant, the citizens
of this great Republic will inevitab:y join the lowly
vassals behlnd the Iron Curtain who today mourn their
lost freedom as they wa;k in their own personal Garden
In the hands of small men, it is the greatest force for evil the world
has ever known since thl serpent f roffered the apple in the Garden of
When the Federal Constitution was submitted to the Virginia As~
sembly for ratification, Patrick Henry, one of the greatest statesmen to
grace any lawmaking body in the history of time, issued a warning which
today must haunt the minds of thoughtful and frightened Americans
who are witnessing the dismal picture of a Federal government wherein
power is all but absolute.
The Virginia patriot felt that the Constitution as drawn and submitted
for ratification could conceivably pave the way for the assumption
and abuse of power by those in authority which would c:mcel out
the rights of the citizen and make a mockery of human freedom. "V.lhen
you give power, you don't know what you give," he shouted to his colleagues.
"I dread the depravity c.f human nature. I wish to guard
against it with proper checks and balances."
In the debate that followed, he indicated loopholes in the document
which was before the Assembly for confirmation. "The Constitution
surrenders the purse and the sword to the Federal Government," he
gravely pointed out to hi:5 compatriots. "In it the creature soars above
the creator and if the power be infinite, what rights have the people

Only Way To Handle Communists Is
To Kick Them Out Of The Country
All this talk of "summit conferences"
between Communists and
Western leaders and the eternal
yak-yaking with the Bolsheviks
which never gets anywhere, must
be thoroughly discouraging to those
who have the common sense to
realize that trying to ~ason with
the Russian bandits is as purposeless
as a dog chasing its tail.
The Communists have never
kept a promise or treaty and never
intend to and the only ones who
don't seem to realize this are the
leaders of government who arrange
for the endless and futile talkfests.
The tragic aspect of it is that the
Communists could be disposed of
so easily and International Communism
given a lethal set-back that
would halt its rapid ad v.a n c e
throughout the world if those in
authority only had the courage to
do what is necessary.
This would be the withdrawal of
recognition of Russia and all its
satellite countries by the United
States and the cessation of all trade
and every other kind of relations
with the dirty bums. It would be
a blow to Communist prestige
throughout the world which can
never be delivered so long as we
continue to palaver with them and
treat them as if they were a civilized
By doing this and demanding the
withdrawal of all Communist diplomats
and representatives in the
country, we would then have only
our own domes tic Communists to

from our boundaries would
be like cutting off the head of the

CLUB WOMEN MAKE
MOST AMAZING CHOICE
OF CONVENTION SPEAKER
The invitation extended by the
National Federation of Women's
Clubs to Walter Reuther to address
the group's forthcoming convention
in Los Angeles, has engendered
so much opoosition that the
belief is expressed in informed club
circles that the invitation will
either be withdrawn or that the
labor racketeer, sensing the resentment,
will decline to accept.
First opposition to the proposal
is believed to have come from Texas
club members who were frankly
astounded that a man whose political
philosophy would, if adopted,
put an end to Constitutional
Government in the United States,
should be invited to speak to a
group aspiring to retain the national
prestige and distinction which
the National Federation is generaHy
credited with possessing.

truths was expressed by Thomas
Jefferson when he said: "That
country is governed best that is
SWELLING POWER (Cont;nued from Page I)
remaining? The time will come when our Legislatures will exhibit
mournful proofs of their lost liberty without power to restore it."
Haunted by the specter of a governing system across the ocean
based on the Divine Right of Kings, and from which early American
colonists had fled, the immortal Virginian contended that only the people
themselves were endowed with Divine Rights and that the power of
those who govern should be held to the minimum by strong and inflexible
provisions of the Constitution which the assaults of demagogues could
not change nor modify.
It was largely because of the eloquent reasoning of Patrick Henry
and other great statesmen of that day, to whom the Constitution was a
symbol o~ freedom for the people and restraint for those who govern,
that the ftrst ten amendments to the Constitution were added as a precaution
to insure inherent rights of the citizen and limited authority of
the Federal government.
If they had stopped with the Bill of Rights as these first ten amendments
to the Constitution were called, perhaps Patrick Henry's dream
of a Constitutional Republic in which supreme sovereignty was vested
in the citizens composing it, might have come true.
But the eternal fight for power and the relentless contest for the
purse did not cease with the adoption of the Bill of Rights and when
the Sixteenth Amendment levying an income tax was adopted, the
Federal Government won the battle for power and for the purse and the
American people lost their freedom.
The p assage o r this a m endment o p e n ed the door to pru~,; li cu lty
every form of vice and corruption to which weak humanity is heir and
the immorality and dishonesty of Washington politicians in their mad
race to bankrupt the national treasury as a result of this mass grant of
power has not been equalled in the written history of the human race.
The amendment took title to property from those who owned it and
vested it in political con men in Washington. It was a consignment of
unlimited power and a surrender of the public purse and of property
rights to. governing authorities which offered an inducement to the f·•ll
play of the "depravity of the human race" of which Patrick Henry warned
and which the recipients could not, and did not, resist.
As a result of this bestowal of unlimited power on irresponsible
politicians which gave them license to "tax and tax and spend and
spend," the resources and substance of the American people have been
dissipated and the past two decades have witnessed an orgy of extrava ..
gant spending and unbridled corruption which is unmatched since the
days of the dissolute Emperors of ancient Rome.
History proves that retrieving unrestra·ined power from grasping
politicians is like trying to turn back the tides of the ocean for once they
have tasted the heady wine of unlimited authority, their excesses have
seldom been checked except at the point of the sword.
All over the American Republic today there is an insistent and grow ..
ing dem~nd that something be done to restrain the burgeoning power
of Washmgton bureaucrats and to restore some measure of the priceless
freedom which the citizens have lost.
There is nothing that could effect this wholesome objective like the
repeal of the obnoxious and shameful Sixteenth Amendment and while
this project has met with failure heretofore because of strong and bitter
opposition by the human bloodsuckers in Congress who want to continue
to bleed American taxpayers white, honorable and dedicated Americans
are continuing the fight.
As a new beginning, the legislature of the great and sovereign State
of Wyoming recently approved a joint resolution memorializing Congress
to "propose to the people an amendment to the Constitution of the
United States or to call a convention for the purpose of abolishing income,
gift and estate taxes."
Because of the provision in the Constitution for amending that doc~
ument, it is within the power of the Sovereign States to force Congress
to take action in this matter and if the States fail or refuse to discharge
their sacred obligation then the direful warning of Patrick Henry will
have reached its tragic fulfillment:
"The time will come when our Legislatures will exhibit mournful
proofs of their lost liberty without power to restore it.''

HEAliNG THE NATION'S SICK ECONOMY
IS OBJECTIVE -OF U.S. MEDICAL GROUP

medicine, first launched the ethical
treatment of disease as one of the
earth's most honored professions,
the physicians of the world have
ministered to ailing humanity with
the dedicated objective of prolonging
In the United States today, there
is a large segment of physicians
who are going above and beyond
the call of duty and are undertaking
to cure a sick economy from
which their beloved Republic is dyIng.
The name of this medical group

Physicians and Surgeons of which

preserve quality medical care and
insure the continuation of private
practice, it set up a qualification
for membership which provided
that those joining the group must
be members in good standing of
their county and state societies and
the American Medical Association.
The Association held its sixteenth
annual meeting in Fort
Worth early in April where the
highlight of the occasion was an
address by Honorable Bruce Alger,
Congressman fr_om D a II a s

body in Washington where
he is rendering outstanding and

in many fields of patriotic endeavor

Public Indignation Concerning
Nepotism Embarrasses Lawmakers
The continued revelation of relatives on the payroll of members of
both Houses of Congress has aroused widespread indignation throughout
the country even by those who seem to take the general wasting of the
taxpayers money without protest.
There was so much embarrassment caused to those participating in
the practice of nepotism that officials of both the House and Senate have
made it practically impossible for any more information on the subject
to be given out to those investigating the matter.
Before the lid was clamped down however, it was revealed that an
Iowa lawmaker had his teen-age son on the payroll for $11,872. A Texas
solon was also reported to have his brother on the payroll for $1050 per
month and various other instances were cited which showed that the
practice is freely indulged in by our great statesmen in Washington.
The amount of money actually involved is infinitesimal when compared
to the billions of dollars which are annually confiscated from the
taxpayers and scattered all over the world to any group of beggars who
hold out their itching palms to Uncle Sam.
About the only thing involved in the practice of Nepotism is principle,
or rather a lack of it, for it indicates that those who are honored
with the vote of the electorate to these high positions are not above doing
a little cheap grafting on the side.
That they have larceny in their souls is generally accepted because of
their wholesale theft from the public treasury but, somehow, the public
is shocked when they descend to petty pilfering of taxpayers money.

Who Will. Be The Presidential
Nominees In Nineteen Sixty?
Many of our subscribers write us and ask our opinion on who will
be nominated by Modern Republicans and Fair Deal Democrats for
President in 1960.
We, of course, know no more about it than the man in the moon
but we have no hesitancy in making a guess just as many other Americans
It is our private opinion, publicly expressed, that both of these Socialist
parties will nominate the very worst and least desirable men in
their stable of candidates. This conclusion is based on their performance
for the past quarter century.
As to who those candidates will be, that is on the lap of the gods.
All we can safely predict is that they will be One-Worlders, racial mongrelizers,
and all-round strong opponents of Americanism and Constitutional
Our own personal belief is that the so-called Republicans will put
up Nelson Rockefeller, one of the most politically dangerous men in the
United States as their candidate. With billions of dollars at his command,
Rockefeller is in position to buy the nomination and any one who does
not think this nomination can be bought has only to think back to 1952
when trainloads of money from New York defeated Robert Taft and
secured the nomination for Eisenhower. With Rockefeller in the White
House the campaign to Socialize the world which has been carried on
for generations with Rockefeller Foundation money would receive heavy
All indications are that either Adlai Stevenson, two-time loser in
the Presidential sweepstakes, or Stuart Symington will be the offering
of the so-called Democratic Party, both of whom could be expected to
plunge the nation further into the mire of Socialism into which it has
been gradually sinking since 1933.
When American voters have to choose between Rockefeller and
Stevenson or Rockefeller and Symington, the matter could just as well be
settled by the method used in the selection of Darius for King of Persia.
n · · d a on · ·
f'Or' the throne c e on w: o arse e e rs s ou possess
the kingdom. Darius' horse, which had probably been tipped off in advance,
beat his equine comrades to the draw with a quick short snort
and so his master ascended the throne.
Another time-tested device for settling arguments is the flipping of
a coin and this is also recommended in the event the voters have to
choose between two International Socialists because if the above cand idates,
or others like them, are chosen for President, it is going to be a
case of heads they win and tails the American people lose.
Meantime, the only faint hope for decent, upright and Constitutionminded
Americans is that the Elector Plan now being pushed in the
South will succeed and the election thrown into the House of Representatives.
In that case almost any White man who may be put up would be an
improvement over those now proposed by both parties for the job.

Communist Words Are Empty
Sounds To Disguise Meaning
Apparently the American people
are going to have to witness again
the humiliating spectacle of the
President journeying to Geneva to
;:>alaver and harangue with the barJarian,
A small measure of dignity might
have been saved if the forthcoming
"summit conference" were to be
held in Washington as first anticipated.
But Khrushchev didn't want
to make the trip and so vetoed the
idea, and since what Nikita wants
Nikita seems to get, Western leaders
will go to Geneva or some other
foreign seat of intrigue where the
cards will all be stacked.
Wherever the conference is held
and whoever attends it, the millions
of words exchanged between the
participants will add up to exactly
nothing and any promises the Moscow
Monster makes to the conferees
will prove about as firm and
binding as a spider web. ·
The credo of the Communists is
that words are merely empty
sounds to disguise the real meaning
of those who utter them.
Somehow, the United States always
manages to lose the argument
at the conference table and
if the Geneva confab takes place,
only a hopeless optimist can anticipate
that results will be any different

THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE
Somebody G~vE~ Us A Big· Farm. And We'll
Haul Down The Dough For Doing Nothing
. It is believed that persons in the United States, seizing on opportunities
offered by corrupt Congressional practices, have developed a
new racket which is making those who operate it rich.
The Agricultural Adjustment Administration in the Department of
Agriculture in \Vashington administers the Agricultural Adjustment Act.
While it is difficult for sane, honest and normal persons to believe it, this
Act provides that the Federal Government will pay cash subsidies to
farmers for not raising certain crops specified by fountain pen farmers
on Capitol Hill. It also penalizes farmers who produce one bushel of
grain or farm one acre of land above that allotted to them by the bureaucrats.
This not only applies to farmers who were stupid enough to sign
the pact but to any man who tills the soil for a living.
Consequently, large corporations owning thousands of acres of
"farm" land are springing up all over the country and drawing millions
of dollars from the government for not doing anything but just sitting
back and receiving_ the checks. \Vhile these "corporation farmers" never
had it so good, thousands of small farmers all over the country who
were in the business to make a living for their families are joining the
dodo bird in oblivion.
Recently Senator John Williams of Delaware revealed that the government
had sent a check for $1,167,502 to one of these farm corporations
which is owned in its entirety by a British firm, although its land
lies in the State of Mississippi. The check was listed as a "price support
loan." This same•firm was also paid an additional $20,761 in 1957
not for raising rice but for NOT raising rice.
A corporation which owns a farm in Arkansas also got a subsidy
from the government of $1,460,902; a Mississippi farm corporation received
a subsidy of $1,167,502 and a California farm corporation was
the beneficiary of a subsidy check in the amount of $854,450, all for not
raising crops on their land.
The original purpose of enacting this legislation was inspired by a
desire on the part of members of the two major political parties to capture
the farm vote and both have been playing football with the issue
In view of the old saying that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, we
wish that we could get in on this racket and make a pile of money.
We are therefore earnestly requesting some of our well-heeled subscribers
to buy us a large acreage which we will designate as a "farm"
and start drawing down big chunks of other people's money without
having to turn a hand.
In that way we might be able to finance our paper adequately.

POWERFUL WOMEN'S GROUP MEETS FOR
DISCUSSION OF ECONOMIC PROBLEMS
As we went to press, Fort Worth
was being honored as the site of
the 26th annual convention of National
Association of Pro-America
which was meeting in a five-day
session for serious discussion of
such economic problems as States'
Rights, freedom of speech, religion,
assembly, press and other questions
of national import in which
this great ·organization is concerned.
Membership of Pro America, of
which Mrs. John Howland Snow
of Connecticut was re-elected president,

the Union and is composed largely
of women in the upper intellectual
strata who have greatly curtailed
lesser activities in favor of dedicated
study .of the serious problems
confronting the American Republic
as a result of twenty-five years of
rapidly advancing Socialism in government.
The organization is non-partisan
and is open to all women interested
in good government regardless of
their political affiliation.

in 1933 and has steadily grown
We have heard so many responsible
persons express the hope that
the Honorable Bruce Alger, Congressman
from Dallas, will become
a United States Senator from Texas,
that we are wondering if a
trend along this line may develop.
Personally we doubt it because we
just don't think anything that good
could happen to Texas which for a
long time now has had to make do
with definitely inferior representation
in the upper chamber of
in membership and prestige until
today it is reckoned as one of the
most powerful organizations of
women on the national scene.
Principal address of the convention
was delivered by the Honorable

of Constitutional Government
in the United States.

Surely There's A Beiter
Answer Than This One
Some members of the Texas Legislature
are trying to revive and
breathe life into a proposed Constitutional
by John Nance Garner many years
ago in which Texas would be divided
into five states, a procedure
authorized in the State's Constitution.
Those favoring such an amendment
argue that it would give the
Lone Star State a much heavier
representation in Washington and
provide for ten United States senators
instead of only two as at
present, thereby partly neutralizing
Northern D e.m ocr at i c Party
That's true and if it's only quantity
rather than quality that is
needed to lift our prevailing standard
of statesmanship perhaps it
would be a good idea.
But the catch is that there is no
assurance that Texas voters would
exercise any better judgment when
operating under five separate units
than they have when performing as
There would be the awful possibility
that we would get eight
more senators of the same calibre
as the two we already have.
In our· opinion, that would not
provide redress for our grievances.

SACRILEGIOUS PERFORMANCE IN NEW · ·
ENGLAND CHURCH SHOCKS THE NATION
Th~ National Council of Churches is a political propaganda organization
claiming a membership of 40,000,000 which takes keen interest in
practically all subjects except religion.
Throughou~ the years conventional Christians in various Protestant
churches have been shocked and embarrassed by the policies of the
Council which closely follow those laid down by the American Communist
Party, but no organized protest so far has developed the strength
to curb the unorthodox activities of the group.
Serious-minded churchmen believe, however, that the recent disgraceful
and sacrilegious performance in St. Paul's Protestant Episcopal
Church in Norwalk, Connecticut, which was the scene of a "Jazz Mass"
where sacred music was replaced by rock 'n roll and where a thumping
four-piece combo substituted for the solemn tones of the organ, will do
more to bring discredit to the NCC which approved the stunt, than all
the left-wing political activities in which it has heretofore engaged.
The bacchanalian spiritual orgy took place, according to press reports,
on Sunday morning, April 5, and representatives of the National
Council were on hand to observe approvingly the swing and sway of the
younger communicants who tapped their feet and swung their hips as
the hot cha cha and the blast of a jazz piano, drums, alto sax and bull fiddle
pierced the quiet and peaceful air of the calm New England sabbath.

So this farmer, Stanley Yankus, is

This punishment for small farmers

Senator More Concerned A-i· Threat
Of Outrage Than At Outrage Itself
On March 26, the Senate Rackets
Committee in Washington investigating
racketeering on the part of
labor unions in the Miami area developed
an alleged plot to use racial
tensions as a weapon in labor disputes.
A Miami official of the Teamster's
Union was revealed, according
to evidence in the hands of the
Committee, to have threatened to
locate Negroes in \Vhite neighborhoods
in that city in order to intimidate
contractors with whom
the unions were having labor disputes.
The scheme, according to the
committee, was originated by a person
named Bennie Rubin, the head
of three Miami labor union locals.
The plan was for the union head
to take $15,000 of labor union
funds and march into a housing
project where White persons were
negotiating for residence and offer
to buy the house for the Negro
who accompanied him. This usually
brought the contractor into line, it

Senator Frank Church of Idaho
was especially reported to be incensed
at this "exploitation of the
minority race" but that seemed to
be the only phase of the subject to
arouse his anger.
If the Idaho senator thinks it
outrageous for a person to "threaten"
to locate Negroes in White
neighborhoods, why is he unable to
see how much more outrageous it
is for this step to actually be taken?
There have been hundreds of cases
since Communists first started agitating
for racial mixing where Negroes
have been moved into White
neighborhoods but we have seen
no objection on the part of the ""
Idaho senator to this disgraceful
procedure. But he goes into a tizzy
when a smart labor union racketeer
merely threatens to take this action
in order to gain his point.
Any way, what does a senator
from Idaho know about the Negro
situation as it relates to a State
in the Deep South?
According to the last census,
Idaho had a population of 588,637,
only 1,050 of whom were Negroes.

appealed to Congress to try to win

an end to the disgraceful padding

the headlines in recent weeks.
Mr. Eccles thinks the p eo p I e

and feels that American voters are
"beginning to doubt the good judgment
of our lawmakers."
If this is true, then American

When We Run Out Of Places To
Go We'll Attend A Book Review
t Man~ women consider it smart and a mark of culture to go in for
book reviews. Sometimes it may be, but many times it is just the
1 One of the most effective mediums for brainwashing the American
people is through book reviews where professionals make a career of it
and which are becoming so widespread and numerous as to constitute
a leading public institution.
At the present time scores of subversive books are being "reviewed''
by those who, either through ignorance or design, are promoting propaganda
for United Nations, UNESCO, One-World Government, racial integration
and practically everything else under the sun except Americanism.
It is unbelievable how many persons, and especially women, who
will foregather to hear some touted book reviewer discuss the latest
non·ficdon "best seller" and the interpretation such reviewer will give
of the volume. And nine times out of ten these women will leave the
review chattering like magpies about how they have acquired a better
grasp or a subject they have not heretofore understood.
Personally, we have always had a very unconventional opinion of
book r~ views and book reviewers.
\Ve look upon book reviewers as egotistical ~nd opinionated per·
sons w.10 feel qualiiied to direct public thought; and we regard those
who attend book reviews as suckers who. are unable to think for themselves.
There are very few persons in this world whom we would trust to
read a book and interpret its meaning for us. If we are too busy or too
lazy to read it ourselves and make our own appraisal of the message it
convey.:;, then it will go unread so far as we are concerned, because the
chances are that the ideas of the reviewer would not jibe with our own
concepdon of the subject under discussion.
Having made a long and painful study of the fine art of propaganda,
we see not only the printed word but, from long habit, are able to read
between the lines and to spot the subtle phrases and nuances which are
designed to shape and mold public opinion in preparation for the "new
world order" which is ,peing prepared for us.
These women who flock to teas and other events where the main
attraction is a book review had better familiarize th em selves with the
book to be reviewed in advance or else they are liable to come away
with their pretty little heads chock full of propaganda of a nature which
will be of no help whatever to them in carrying on as good American
So far, we have been able to successfully fend off all invitations
to such events with the simple and uncomplicated crack that we consider
them, at best, silly and boring and, at worst, sinister and subversive.

an arm injury and contusions on
the head and knee.
The woman was Mrs. Edgar Ansel
Mowrer, wife of a Pulitzer prize
winning columnist, and her attackers
were three Negro girls ranging
from ten to fourteen years of age.
HI was walking toward home
over the path I had used 100 times
when I noticed the three girls,"
Mrs. Mowrer stated from her hospital
bed. "Suddenly they sprang
on me from behind, one putting a
foot in front of mine and pushing
me to the ground. It was obviously
not their first experience. I went
down like a ton of bricks." The
victim's purse was then rifled of
seventeen dollars after which the
assailants disappeared before help
It was stated that it would be
necessary for the injured woman
to resort to plastic surgery to restore
her broken nose.
Since the lady is the wife of a
Pulitzer prize winner, it is to be
assumed that she is not a pronounced
opponent of social racial
mixing as Pulitzer prizes do not go
to those who combat Communist
This surprise attack on her
should make her more careful in
the future as vicious assaults on
White people by Negro thugs are
taking place practically every day
all over the country and in spite
of efforts of the pink press to play
down or suppress all mention of
t hem, these beastly crimes are
showing a tremendous increase.
I The psychology back of increasing
Negro crime is simple and clear.
They can neither take, understand
nor deal with a situation in which
they are coddled by vote-seeking
1.White politicians and their natural
reaction is to exercise their baser
Instincts to the fullest without fear
of proper punishment.
Only the people of the South understand
Negro psychology and
they were able to hold them in
check unt il the barrage of propaganda
for social racial mixing was
trained on us from Moscow and
taken up by a worthless class of
colored people and soft-headed
White reformers in the United
The full penalty which must be
paid for this exhibition of mass insanity
is something which only the
future can reveal.
A member of the Texas Senate
recently put in a station to station
call from Austin to his home in a
nearby city. His eight-year-old son
answered the phone and the fol~
lowing conversation took place:
"Hello, son, whe1·e's your mother?"
uShe's gone after me."
"What do you mean she's gone
after you? You are there aren't
uYes, but she don't know it."
The action of the Honorable Stephen M. Young in disposing of
$234,000 worth of valuable stock in order to technically qualify in the
"conflict of interest" ballyhoo in connection with his new job as United
States Senator from Ohio, has been widely commended by his colleagues
and by the press.
To us, however, it seems a silly and senseless procedure since it
constitutes a concession to a very unwholesome and un-American sentiment
which has been fostered by demagogues in this country and which
holds that the possession of property and money is something sinister
and that it brands the possessor as an undesirable citizen.
This subversive idea should be stamped out and not encouraged and
catered to unless we are ready to admit that such philosophy is part of
our national pattern and that it is a disgrace in the American Republic
to own property and have money in the bank.
If we are prepared to adhere to that line of reasoning, then we must
also concede that a tramp in the jungle is the ideal citizen and that he
occupies a more honorable status than we are willing to accord a man
We, for one, repudiate such idiocy.
We, personally, are inordinately proud of the American Free Enterprise
system and of such initiative as has been left to individuals in this
country to accumulate wealth to the extent of their ability. We believe
that every other healthy-minded American feels the same way.
Also, we honor those who have the judgment and business acumen
to acquire their full share of this world's goods through the proper exercise
of their ingenuity.
As to Senator Young, we have far more respect for him because he
came into office as a man of achievement and substance than we have
for the human leeches who spend their lives drawing sustenance from
the public teat because they can't make a living any other way.
Perhaps Senator Young would have been more politically acceptable
as a lawmaker if he were in such straitened financial circumstances
that he would have to rent his front porch to the government in order to
-make both ends meet.
Any American who claims to look down on persons because of their
wealth and who denies that he, himself, would like to be rich is a rank
hypocrite and is lying through his teeth.
The desire to own is a normal human impulse and those who rate
failure above success and pay political homage to a shiftless bum on the
relief rolls which they deny to a top-ranking business executive have a
twisted brain and a distorted conception of life's proper aims, ideals
As a political tenet, this false philosophy is base, contemptible and
untenable and will be rejected by all honest American citizens.
Travesty Of Professional
Brotherhood Is Denounced
One of the most sensible, sane and wholesome statements concerning
"brotherhood" to come from a religious leader in a long while was
that of The Reverend John R. Leatherbury, highly revered and universally
respected Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in Fort Worth, which appeared
in St. John's official church paper, The Tribune, on February 27.
In his editorial in that publication, Rev. Leatherbury said in part:
"This past week we have seen and heard a great deal about 'brotherhood.'
In fact, children in the public schools have been compelled to
listen to a great deal of dribble from professional religious teachers.
Since many of us advocate the separation of Church from State, there
is absolutely no foundation for Brotherhood Week to be stressed in the
Public Schools. This is just another gimmick of 'do-gooders' to confuse
the issue. No doubt the men who gave the talks were sincere and yet,
they were talking with tongue in cheek and stressing attributes which
they do not believe nor do they teach in their separate denominations ... "
Rev. Leatherbury pointed out what a travesty it was for Priests,
Rabbis and Protestant ministers ''to stand on the same platform and
say 'all men are brothers' and then to return to their own churches and
preach contrary doctrine."
''I, for one, believe that church teaching belongs in the home and
in the Church so that it can be carried into the world properly," Rev.
Leatherbury said and added:
"Those of us who are parents must take a definite stand and see
to it that the Public School is not a sounding board for politics, dogooders,
one-worlders and the great classification of 'oddballs' who
have arisen in the last 25 years."
This good man's sound philosophy will be resented by the "oddballs"
to whom he refers and their followers but all right-thinking
Christian citizens will honor him for his forthright and honest discussion
of the subject.
University Lecture Career
Nipped In Bud By Mothers
We have long realized that Eliz~
abeth Taylor, the Hollywood movie
actress, was quite versatile and
could play many different roles assigned
her but, somehow, we had
never quite pictured her as exactly
a person who would be asked to
lecture to young university stu~
dents and give instruction and ad~
vice to America's citizens of to·
But, according to press reports.
that is exactly what Miss Taylor
was invited to do by the University
of California at Los Angeles.
No sooner had news of Miss Taylor's
impending appearance before
UCLA students been made public
than a veritable hornet's nest was
unloosed on officials of the university.
Not only from California, but
from all over the country protests
poured in against the project in
such proportions that school offi4
cials gave up, cancelled the speak4
ing and ran for cover.
For some reason a large per4
centage of American housewives
and mothers don't seem to care
much for Miss Taylor.
Apparently they think she performs
better as a cat on a hot tin
roof than as a mentor in a university
Any. way, Miss Taylor had the
last v.rord. When informed that her
lecture had been cancelled, she re~
torted that she had never in tended
to make the ta\k as a\on.~ about
the time she was scheduled to ap·
pear before the students, she would
have urgent business in Las Vegas.
With hundreds to choose from,
it was typical that the President
should select General Lyman L.
Lemnitzer as Army Chief of Staff.
Apparently his action in withhold·
ing supplies from Korea which had
been allotted to that country and
which was widely publicized some
years ago, was all in the day's
work. In view of his appointment
it can only be concluded that his
performance in that connection
had the approval of the admini~
Because the printing of transac~
tions between the United States
and foreign governments, full doc·

World War II, the Yalta and Teheran
agreements and similar com~

fall in arrears and are not, therefore,
available to the American
people, the Wisconsin DAR has
urged Congress to insist that the:
State Department fulfil! its obligation
and proceed without delay
to make full records available to
the American public.
The Income Tax amendment to
the Constitution gave Government
unlimited authority in tax levies
and took title to private property
away from the individual citizen
and conferred it on irresponsible

amendment was perhaps the most
evil act ever committed against a
free people and should be repeal~
