  • Text: THE ° Dan Smoot Report: Vol. 9, No. 22 (Broadcast 407) June 3, 1963 Dallas, Texas DAN SMOOT PLANNED DICTATORSHIP "The way to have good and safe government is not to trust it all to one; but to divide it among the many, dis- tributing to every one exactly the functions he is competent to. Let the National government be entrusted with the defense of the nation, and its foreign and federal relations; the State government with the civil rights, laws, police and administration of what concerns the State generally; the counties with the local concerns of the counties and each ward direct the interests within itself. It is by dividing and subdividing these republics, from the great national one down through all its subordinations, until it ends in the administration of every man’s farm and affairs by himself; ... that all will be done for the best. What has destroyed liberty and the rights of man in every government which has ever existed under the sun? The generalizing and concentrating all cares and powers into one body, no matter whether of the autocrats of Russia or France or of the aristocrats of a Venetian Senate.” —Thomas Jefferson In June, 1955, the Federal Civil Defense Administration staged Operation Alert, CO a nation-wide rehearsal of what civil defense would do in the event of a nuclear bombing raid on the United States which killed around 10 million people. Operation Alert revealed that sudden disaster could cause drastic confusion in the civil defense ° system. It also revealed that absolute dictatorship would emerge before the casualties could be counted. After receiving reports of the mock casualties in the mock nuclear air raid, in con- nection with Operation Alert, President Eisenhower, on June 16, 1955 (without wait- ing for reports to see whether normal civil authorities could maintain order) used his Executive Power to issue a mock declaration of martial law for the whole nation. Comments in the press and in Congress were, generally, unfavorable. To some, it was chilling to see how readily a President of the United States would proclaim a military dictatorship in time of emergency and disaster. To others, Eisenhower’s haste to issue a mock declaration of martial law revealed only that the Administration had no adequate plan of action—that Eisenhower reached for the weapon of martial law because he did not know what else to do.” THE DAN SMOOT REPORT, a magazine published every week by The Dan Smoot Report, Inc., mailing address P.

Page 169 Hence, the Operation Alert exercise of 1955 helped create demand for a better plan of national action to be followed if the United States were suddenly struck a devastating blow. In 195 8, President Eisenhower reorganized the civil defense system. He merged the Civil Defense Administration with the old Office of Defense Mobilization, creating a new agency called the Office of Civil and Defense Mobilization. President Kennedy scrapped the Eisen- hower system and established something entirely new. Kennedy says that civil defense should not be handled by a separate agency of government, but that the multiple activities of civil defense should be handled by the reg- ular departments and agencies of government — all of their activities to be planned and co- ordinated by a small presidential staff. Kennedy’s Executive Orders On July 20, 1961, Kennedy (by Execu- tive Order No. 10952) abolished the Office of Civil and Defense Mobilization, immedi- ately transferring most civil defense func- tions to the Department of Defense. On August 1, 1961, Secretary of Defense McNa- mara put Adam Yarmolinsky temporarily in charge of all civil defense activities in the Department of Defense. Yarmolinsky (whose parents aré notorious communist-fronters) has a record of participating in communist activities since his undergraduate days at Harvard.” Since the Kennedy Administra- tion apparently considers Yarmolinsky indis- pensable for other duties in the Defense Department, Yarmolinsky was soon replaced as head of civil defense activities. The present Assistant Secretary of Defense for Civil Defense is. Steuart L. Pittman. On August 14, 1961, Kennedy issued Executive Order No. 10958, giving the Sec- retary of Health, Education, and Welfare the civil defense responsibility of stockpiling medical supplies; giving to the Secretary of Agriculture the civil defense responsibility of stockpiling food. On February 16, 1962, Kennedy issued ten Executive Orders (10995 and 10997 through 11005) delegating other civil defense responsibilities to heads of other departments and agencies — Interior Department, Com- merce Department, Labor Department, Post Office Department, Federal Aviation Agency, Housing and Home Finance Agency, Inter- state Commerce Commission, and so on. Tene grail presidential staff, which has the responsibility of planning and co-ordinating the civil defense activities of the regular agencies and departments of government, is called the Office of Emergency Planning. Oddly enough, President Kennedy did not issue an Executive Order ‘‘creating”’ the Office of Emergency Planning and outlining its duties until September, 1962 — more than a year after the OEP had been actively in existence. On September 27, 1962, Kennedy issued Executive Order 11051, ‘Prescribing Respon- sibilities of the Office of Emergency Planning in the Executive Office of the President.” The most notable thing about this Executive Order, however, is that it amended 15 pre- vious Executive Orders (5 issued by Truman; 8, by Eisenhower; 2, by Kennedy himself) by deleting references to “Civil and Defense Mobilization” and replacing those references with ‘Office of Emergency Planning,” The significance of this change in language is subtle. In November, 1962, the Eighth NATO Parliamentarians’ Conference met in Paris, attended by delegates from the parlia- ments of the 15 countries belonging to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Thir- teen United States Senators (under the chair- manship of J. William Fulbright, extreme leftwing Democrat from Arkansas); and eight United States Representatives (under Page 170 the chairmanship of Wayne L. Hays, extreme leftwing Democrat from Ohio) made up the delegation from the American “parliament” to the Eighth NATO Parliamentarians’ Con- ference. Senator Fulbright’s official report to the Senate on the Eighth NATO Parliamentar- ians’ Conference contains a brief section on Civil Defense, from which the following is quoted: “Civil emergency planning is much wider in its implications than civil defense. ‘Whereas civil defense can be considered as a purely national responsibility, civil emergency planning requires close coopera- tion between the NATO Allies.... ‘Although civil emergency planning does not directly encroach on the responsibilities of national authorities, nevertheless on a number of points the organization of the latter will have to take account of the former’s planning and preparations.””) Here appears to be a reason for changing ec. y 33 ec 72 = 33 civil defense” and “defense mobilization to “emergency planning.” It takes our civil defense preparations out of the “purely national” realm, and makes them part of an over-all international plan. On February 26, 1963, President Kennedy issued nine more Executive Orders (11087 through 11095) delegating ‘““emergency planning” activities to heads of governmental agencies not mentioned in previous Executive Orders on the subject: Federal Communica- tions Commission, Civil Service Commission, Atomic Energy Commission, General Services Administration, Federal Reserve System, Tennessee Valley Authority, Federal Power Commission, National Science Foundation, and so on. Tn all, Kennedy has issued 23 Executive Orders, dealing with emergency planning, which prescribe the lines of authority for a total dictatorship to be controlled and co- ordinated at the top by a small group of emergency planners in the executive office of the President. The national police state thus planned would be a tighter, more complete dictator- ship than any which has ever existed in modern times, in communist countries or elsewhere. Kennedy’s executive orders outline a plan, not for protecting the American people from suffering and death in the event of disaster, but for seizing absolute control of every aspect of human life in the United States. The Executive Orders, which formally pro- claimed the plan, have been published in the Federal Register. This is the modern way of giving executive proclamations the force of law. In the formulation of such “executive law,’’ Congress does not deliberate and legis- late, in response to the desires of the people and in conformity with grants of power. in the Constitution. Indeed, Congress has no role at all. The President proclaims a law, then gives it statutory force by merely publishing it in the Federal Register. Thus, President Kennedy, by Executive Orders which bypass Congress, has already created a body of “laws” to transform our Republic into a dictatorship— at the dis- cretion of the President. The extraordinary principle (that the President can do anything he pleases in time of dire emergency, and that the President alone can determine what is a dire emergency) was proclaimed by Frank- lin D. Roosevelt in November, 1933, and reafhrmed by the Attorney General — and has never been challenged by the Courts or the Congress of the United States.” Can We Trust Our Leaders? Tt is a dangerous delusion to feel that we can trust our President to tell us the truth; trust him not to exercise authority unneces- sarily; trust him to act only in the best interest of the American nation. Page 171 Let us not forget what happened on Octo- ber 29, 1962. On that day, Arthur Sylvester (Kennedy’s Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs) admitted that the Ken- nedy Administration was giving the public false information about Cuba. Sylvester defended official falsification of the news as proper “management” and ‘‘control,” say- ing that the “generation of news” by official- dom is “‘part of the weaponry that a President has” in the “solution of political prob- lems” — and that the end of creating, in the minds of the people, the correct attitude about governmental programs, justifies the means.” Let us remember also President Kennedy’s statement on May 12, 1963, concerning the dispatch of Federal troops to Alabama. The President said: “This Government will do whatever must be done to... uphold the law of the land.... The Birmingham agreement was and is a fair and just accord... . The Federal Govern- ment will not permit it to be sabotaged by a few extremists on either side who think they can defy both the law and the wishes of responsible citizens by inciting or inviting violence.” Unless there is obvious and significant violation of legitimate federal authority, the President (under the Constitution) has no right to send troops into a state to maintain order, except on invitation of the government of that state. In Alabama, the Governor had asked the President not to send troops. No federal authority was being violated. The “law of the land” which the President men- tioned was a figment of his own mind — because no federal law, or even federal court order, was involved. The ““Birmingham agree- ment” which the President said he would enforce with federal troops, was a private agreement between whites and negroes, deal- ing, primarily, with the question of job opportunities for negroes. As to “inciting or inviting violence” in Alabama, the President himself was guilty of that, by continual agitation of the delicate situation, specifically by calling Mrs. Martin Luther King to express concern when her husband (a professional agitator, with a com- munist front and jail record) was behind bars for inciting civil disturbance. As to the need for federal troops to sup- press violence: the total of human suffering which the race riots have caused in Birming- ham is hardly worthy of notice in comparison with the continual savage depradations upon white people, by negro hoodlums, in the city of Washington, D. C. In the Alabama affair, the President proves that he does misrepresent facts to the people and does use illegal and unnecessary power to serve his own political ends. As to whether the President can be trusted to act only in the best interests of the nation — note two cases which indicate otherwise: El Chamizal and Panama. EL CHAMIZAL — The Treaty of Guada- lupe, February 2, 1848, established the Rio Grande River as the boundary between Texas and Mexico. Between 1864 and 1868, the Rio Grande eroded a large portion of the high Mexican south bank and formed an alluvial deposit (about 630 acres in size) on the United States side of the river. This occurred just south of El Paso, then a small border town. As El Paso grew, it took in the great alluvial deposit which came to be called El Chamizal. In 1895, the Mexican government made a formal claim to El Chamizal. The American government maintained, in effect, that the middle of the River was the boun- dary line, and that all soil north of that boundary line was American soil, regardless of how it got there. On June 24, 1910, the Mexican and United States governments agreed to let an Arbitra- tion Commission (composed of one Mexican, Page 172 one American, one Canadian) decide whether El Chamizal belonged to the United States or to Mexico. The Arbitration Commission refused to decide the question. Instead, the Commission decided, on June 15, 1911, that El Chamizal should be divided between Mex- ico and the United States. The United States government would not accept that decision, which the Arbitration Commission had not been empowered to make. The issue became dormant for more than fifty years, except for an occasional political speech by some Mexican demagogue who whipped up hatred for the United States and gathered votes for himself by denouncing the El Chamizal “‘land grab.” President Kennedy reopened the old El Chamizal sore. Trying to win Mexican sup- port for his Alliance for Progress, Kennedy quietly opened negotiations with the Mexican government, to work out a means of giving Mexico the 630 acres of United States ter- ritory, which, meanwhile, had become part of the downtown section of modern El Paso. Kennedy got support from the city govern- ment of El Paso and from certain business interests there, by promising tremendous out- lays of taxpayers’ money to “‘compensate”’ the city for the loss of territory.” An article in The Dallas Morning News, May 28, 1963, reported information, from “authoritative sources,” that the United States and Mexico would announce within the next few days a settlement of the El Chamizal dispute. PANAMA — Many events and circum- stances (too numerous to review at this time) indicate that Kennedy is also planning to surrender American control of the Panama Canal, either to the government of Panama or to a United Nations agency. Following the example set by Eisenhower, Kennedy has already weakened the American position by permitting the flying of the Panama flag alongside the Stars and Stripes in the Canal Zone, thus showing a Panamanian “titular” sovereignty over our territory. As to the question (if there be a question) of whether the Kennedy Administration wants a socialist dictatorship in the United States — we need only to read one publica- tion of the U. S. Arms Control and Disarma- ment Agency. United Nations officials — realizing that the massive outpouring of American tax dol- lars (in the United States and abroad) is rapidly building a one-world socialist system; realizing that most of that spending is done under the guise of arming to resist com- munism; and realizing that the Kennedy Administration is determined to disarm the United States — grew concerned about the reduction of American governmental spend- ing which disarmament might bring. On September 22, 1961, the UN Secre- tariat requested that the United States furnish information on “‘the economic and social con- sequences of disarmament in the U.S.” Ken- nedy’s U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency prepared a report to reassure the United Nations officials. The report, published in July, 1962, says, in essence, that disarma- ment will not substantially reduce the spend- ing of American tax dollars, but will deflect those dollars into such programs as social security, federal aid to education, urban re- newal, financing mass transit systems, expand- ing public health and mental health activities, and increasing foreign aid channelled through United Nations agencies.” Only An Emergency Is Needed Any thoughtful person who has watched the arrogant and lawless behavior of the Ken- nedy Administration; its studied efforts to deceive the people and the Congress; its habit of appeasing foreign powers (particularly communist and pro-communist powers) by sacrificing American national interests; and Page 173 its relentless drive toward the total socialist state — reasonably fears that Kennedy might take advantage of some emergency to make himself a dictator, in accordance with the plan which his Executive Orders have already outlined. The May, 1963, Wheat Referendum (when farmers repudiated Kennedy’s farm program, in the face of Kennedy’s threats and promises) is only one of many indications of a growing political revolt against the Kennedy Adminis- tration. Kennedy has enough cunning to see this. If his prestige and influence continue to sink, what will he do in 1964 if he feels he cannot win re-election? Will he accept the verdict of elections and surrender the power so dear to him? Or will he make himself a dictator, by creating an “emergency”? W hat kind of emergency could he create? Since the temperament and disposition of the President became apparent, in the first months of his Administration, there has been anxiety that he might arrange a war for the United States in 1964, if he felt that neces- sary for his own re-election. This anxiety is by no means unfounded. It deepened in late 1962 when Kennedy made war-like gestures about Cuba for the purpose of getting New Frontier supporters elected to Congress. There is another possible emergency — already building up under the senseless and ceaseless prodding of the President and his ™ brother, the Attorney General: an emergency involving racial conflict in the United States. Note this grim paragraph from the May, 1963, issue of H. du B. Reports, a newsletter written in Paris, France, by the extremely well-informed Hilaire du Berrier: “The governments of Western Europe are receiving alarming reports which touch on America’s internal stability. Their inform- ants put it bluntly: A development has taken place within the past few weeks which can shake America, and a crisis in America can endanger the West. The NAACP has con- sistently expressed embarrassment at the violence and anti-White declarations of another group, the Black Muslims, who preach a distorted mohammedanism under the leadership of a former factory hand, Elijah Poole, now known as Elijah Muham- mad. The NAACP’s moderate leaders have acquired both sympathy and support by repudiating Black Muslim advocacy of ter- rorism and black supremacy. However, ac- cording to reliable reports reaching govern- ments around the world (though not the American public), the NAACP and Elijah Muhammad’s followers have formed a com- mon front, which means that the more vio- lent leaders have assumed direction. The focal points for a sudden, brutal outbreak are now New York, Detroit and Chicago, Black Muslim strongholds where for five years Elijah Muhammad’s lieutenants have been organizing an elite militia and stock- ing arms,”’ The Black Muslims want negro suprem- acy, and openly advocate murder of white people until all whites in the United States are either exterminated or reduced to bond- age. The NAACP has made an elaborate pre- tense of “repudiating” the Black Muslims movement, but there are many indications that the NAACP and the Black Muslims are working hand-in-glove: the NAACP warn- ing that if their particular brand of violence is not fully supported, the bloodier violence of the Black Muslims is inevitable. United. States Representative Adam Clay- ton Powell (Democrat, New York), negro Chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, is a life-member of the NAACP. Yet he has openly associated himself with the Black Muslims movement. He recently spoke gloatingly on a national television program about how the negro “thas the white man running scared,’ The head of the NAACP in Washington, D. C. (where negro criminal violence against white people is creating something akin to a reign of terror) said, on a national tele- vision program in early May, 1963, that negro Page 174 violence is coming and that the NAACP will promote the violence if whites do not immedi- ately give the negro what he demands. What does he demand? Absolute legal equality with whites? Not at all! The most explosive racial situation in America is not in the South, but in New York City — where the white man’s right to own and dispose of private property and his right to choose his own associates have been violated to grant negroes so-called ‘‘anti-discrimination” laws. In New York, negroes have no trouble exer- cising their voting rights. There are no legal barriers to school integration. Housing laws make it illegal for private realtors to refuse rental or sale on racial grounds. And “fair employment” laws make it illegal for private employers to refuse employment to negroes because of race. Yet, the negroes of New York City, prod- ded by Black Muslim and NAACP leaders and by men like Adam Clayton Powell, are more restless than ever before. Now they are demanding enforced social and economic equality with white people — which means nothing less than confiscation of the property and earnings of white people (whose superior abilities give them superior earning power) in order to give negroes what they lack innate ability to earn. Tn New Rochelle, New York; in Berkeley, California; in Englewood, New Jersey; in Nashville, Tennessee; in Baltimore, Maryland; in Birmingham, Alabama; in Detroit, Michi- gan; in Greenwood, Mississippi; in Chicago, Illinois; in Washington, D. C.—all across the land, racial tensions are growing every day.

This situation could become the ‘‘emer- gency” which projects John F. Kennedy into absolute dictatorship. What To Do It may very well be that President Ken- nedy will never try to make himself a dic- tator, or involve the nation in war just to get himself re-elected. Despite the blueprint for dictatorship already prepared by Kennedy’s Executive Orders; and despite abundant indi- cations that Kennedy is capable of creating a pretext for seizing power if he fears defeat at the polls in 1964, it is quite likely that none of this will happen. But the very possibility — however remote — should be removed. Congress could remove it, and probably would, if there were sufficient public demand. Congress should abolish (by withholding funds, if necessary) the whole federal civil defense, and “emergency planning,” setup. In time of emergency or disaster, individuals and communities would be infinitely better off in looking after themselves, than in waiting for direction and dictation from federal bureau- crats. Beyond that, Congress should submit an amendment to repeal the income tax amend- 4 ment. The corrupt, oppréssive income tax system feeds all the plans for socialist dictator- ship in the United States. Cut off the excess tax money, and the evil plans will wither and die. The public could demand that Congress enact a law providing that all appropriations will be withheld from any agency of govern- ment trying to initiate amy program which has not been authorized by Congress through formal, constitutional, legislative process. A Congress which would do that would go further, and reverse the settled trend toward dictatorship in the United States.

Born in Missouri, reared in Texas, Dan Smoot went to SMU in Dallas, getting BA and MA degrees in 1938 and 1940. In 1941, he joined the faculty at Harvard as a Teaching Fellow in English, doing graduate work for a doctorate in American Civilization. In 1942, he left Harvard and joined the FBI. As an FBI Agent, he worked for three and a half years on communist investigations in the industrial Midwest; two years as an administrative assistant to J. Edgar Hoover on FBI headquar- ters staff in Washington; and almost four years on general FBI cases in various parts of the nation. In 1951, Smoot resigned from the FBI and helped start Facts Forum. On Facts Forum radio and television programs, Smoot spoke to a national audience, giving both sides of controversial issues. In July, 1955, he resigned and started his present independent publishing and broadcasting business —a free- enterprise operation financed entirely by profits from sales: sales of The Dan Smoot Report, a weekly magazine; and sales of a weekly news-analysis broadcast, to business firms, for use on radio and television as an advertising vehicle. The Report and the broadcast give only ome side in presenting documented truth about important issues — the side that uses the American Constitution as a yardstick. The Report is available by subscription; and the broadcasts are available for commercial sponsorship, anywhere in the United States. If you think Dan Smoot is providing effective tools for Americans fighting socialism and communism, you can help immensely — by helping him get more customers for his Report and broadcasts. Page 176

  • Text: Shreveport, La. July, 27,1963 Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. Atlanta, Ga. Dear Mayor Allen I see by the papers you are advocating the passage of Big Bad John's civil rights legislation. Mayor Allen it must be very hard on a man when he can't go home and look his family in the face and tell them he hasn't got the backbone or guts to to stand up for what is best for both races. I sincerely hope I never get that weak kneed. It sounds to me that you have been in many conferences with Ralph McGill, the professional intergrater and agitator. Do you know what would happen if Shreveport had a newspaper like Ralph Mc§ills paper. We would tar and feather him and run him out of town. You would not last until the next election in Shreveport, You have completely surrendered your freedom to the Kennedy's and in doing so you also surrendered the freedom of the people of Atlanta. I am so thankful that you were not around during the Boston tea party or during the American evolutinn we would still be under the thumb of England. Mayor I'll tell you and all the Kennedys something. There are still a lot of good red blodded americans in this gre at country of ours and we are going to fight you and thé Kennedys as long as there id a breadth in us. I fail to understand how you can support sending thousands of troops in Mississippi to support a decision unconstitutional and at the same time back away from sending troops to enforce the Monroe Yoctrine in Cuba, I have not heard you are any other of the do gooders open your big mouth about the american indian. This is the most discriminated against american living today. I wonder why some one has not championed for his cause. It could be that he doesn't block vote like the darkie. I wish you luck Mayor. Perhaps you can tell your daughter she has got to accept the negroge as her equal and perhaps she may even marry one and just think your grand children could be one white and the other black. I do not expect to hear from you, because you knoww I speak the truth. If you have ansewers I would enjoy hearing from you. Robert Hill .. ifort? I. 2722 W. College Shreveport, La.

I assume this was your formal announcement to the people of Atlanta that you do not intend to seek re-election to the office of Mayor. I was, to this point, pleased that I had actively supported and voted for you in your election to this office. I felt then and feel now that the City of Atlanta must take a realistic approach to all problems--and at this time, particularly to segregation. There are moderates and there are extremists--extremists in both directions. I do not feel that our City has room for an extremist-- regardless of his direction. For you to go before a national television audience and give the impression that the City of Atlanta supports the very socialistic ideas put forth by the subject legislation is absolutely ridiculous. You are expressing a personal viewpoint and one that I feel must be personally inclinated. You could not have the interest of the people as a whole at heart. THE ALUMINUM SLIDING GLASS DOOR WITH THE REVOLUTIONARY FIVE INCH FRAME The Honorable Ivan Allen Jr Mayor of The City of Atlanta Atlanta Georgia July 29th 1963 We are a small locally-owned business that attempts to run all of its affairs in an orderly and equitable fashion. We would resent government intervention of the nature which you are supporting if for no other reason than pride. But pride alone is not the subject at hand. Where does socialism stop? I do not mean to be disrespectful in my expressions of opinion. I am thinking these things and I am talking these things. I see no reason why I should not write them and direct them to the person about which I am thinking and talking. I wholeheartedly disagree with you and I am confident that far more than the majority of the citizens of Atlanta do not agree with you. I do not feel that the "block" alone can elect the Mayor of Atlanta. Sincerely yours Len s President JHSr /mj

Atlanta, Georgia 30327 July 26, 1963 Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: The press announcement of your support of Kennedy's "Public Accommodations" bill is humiliating indeed to the vast majority of Constitutional loving Americans, md especially to your white constituents in Atlanta. It can only be interpreted as an obvious attempt at political pander. It is quite a depressing revelation, after an enigmatic period, to observe an individual, whose initial political support was fostered by a business community, bow to base political pressures and prostitute the very ideals of this same business community. You must find it very difficult these oe to shave without a mirror. ger George E. ayo GEM: mg

  • Text: ~ 1344 Lanier Boulevard, N. E. Atlanta, Georgia 30306 August 1, 1963 Mayor Ivan Allen City Hall 68 Mitchell, S. W. Atlanta, Georgia Dear Sir: We have a few comments to extend relative to your recent testimony before the Senate Commerce Commission. Your remarks to this Commission were exactly what any citizen of Atlanta, Fulton County,and the State of Georgia would expect to emanate from you. Now people in all parts of the United States have been enlightened to the fact that Atlantans have developed a profound propensity for electing Cretins to represent them in the Mayor's Office. In this respect they deserve precisely what they have, nothing. Anyone who would embrace the sick philosophy of such insidious dolts as Jacob Javits, Hubert Humphrey, Clifford Case, Joseph Clark, Kenneth Keating and Company obviously belong to the same cabal clique of "New Frontier" social reformers who would integrate anything and everything thereby attain- ing a little worldly Utopia where everyone is equal and lives harmoniously by the Golden Rule. We trust these despots will finally be satisfied when they have eventually reduced America to a second class nation of Plebians. The framers of the United States Constitution would revolt in horror at the attempts to warp and desecrate it by the radical progressive liberals. Given time the American people will eventually take care of these tyrants at the polls. Yours very truly, GG. (Gok DQ renew eR Cc. A. and Frances Laderoute

T he p resent Assistant Secretary of Defense for Civil Defense is, Steuart L. Pittman. On August 14, 1961, Kennedy issued Executive Order No. 10958, giving the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare the through 1100 5) delegating other civil defense responsibilities to heads of other departments and agenciEis - Interior Department, Commerce Department, Labor Department, Post Office Department, Federal A viation Agency, Housing and Home Finance Agency, Interstate Commerce Commission, and so on. The small presidential staff, w hich has the responsibility of planning and co-on l.-in-a---ctrrg the civil defense activities of the regular agencies and departments of government, is called the Office of Emergency Planning. Oddly enough, President Kennedy did not issue an Executive Order "creating" the Office of Emergency Planning and outlining its duties until September, 1962 - more than a year after the OEP had been actively in existence. On September 27, 1962, Kennedy issued Executive Order 110 5 1, "Prescribing Responsibilities of the Office of Emergency Planning in the Executive Office of the President." T he most n ot able thing about this Executive O rder, however, is that it amended 15 previous Execu t ive Orders ( 5 issued by Truman; 8, by Eisenhower; 2, by Kennedy himself) by deleting references to ·~civil and Defense Mobilization" and replacing those references with "Office of Emergency Planning. " The significance of t his ch ange in language is subtle. In November, 19 62, the Eighth NATO Parliamentarians' Conferen ce m et in Paris, attended by delegates from the parliaments of the 15 countries belonging to t he N orth 1:-tlantic Treaty Organization. Thirteen Umted States Sen ators ( under the chairmansh ip of J. William Fulbright, extreme leftwing D emocrat from A rkansas ) ; and eight United St ates R epresentatives (under the chairmanship of Wayne L. H ays, extreme leftwing D emocrat from Ohio) m ade up the delegation from the American " parliament" to the Eighth NATO Parliamentarians' Conference. Senator Fulbright's official report to the Senate on the Eighth NATO Parliamentarians' Conference contains a brief section on Civil D efense, from w hich the follo wing is quoted: "Civil emergency planning is much wider in its implications than civil defense. Whereas civil defen se can be considered as a purely n ational responsibility, civil emergen cy planning requires close cooperat ion between the NATO Allies .... "Although civil emergency plan ning does not directly encroach on the responsibilities of n a tional authorities, never theless on a number of points t h e organization of t he latter will h ave to take account of the former's planning and prepar at ions." (3) Here appears to be a reason for changing "civil defense" and " defense mobilization" to "emergency planning." It t akes our civil defense prepar ations out of the " purely n ational" realm , and m akes them p art of an over- all in ternation al plan. O n February 26, 1963, President Kennedy issued nine more Executive Orders ( 110 8 7 t h ro u g h 1 1 0 9 5) de legating "emerge n c y planning" activit ies to heads of governmental agencies not mentioned in previous Execu tive Orders on the subj ect: Federal Communicat ions Commission, Civil Service Commission, Atomic Energy Commission, General Services A dministration, Federal Reserve System, Tennessee Valley Authority, Federal Power Commission, National Science Foundation, and so on. In all , Kennedy has issued 2 3 Execu tive Orders, dealing with emergency p lanning, which prescribe the lines of au thority for a total dict atorship to be controlled and coordinated at the top by a small group of emergency planners in the executive office of the President. The n ational police state th us planned would be a tighter, more com plete dictator ship th an any which h as ever existed in modern times, in communist count ries or elsewhere. Kennedy's executive orders outline a plan, not for p rot ecting the American people fr om suffering and death in the event of disaster, but for seizing absolute control of every aspect of human life in the United States. The Executive O rders, which formally proclaimed the plan , h ave been published in the Federal Register. This is t he modern way of giving executive proclamat ions the force of law. In the formulation of such "executive law," Congress does not deliberate and legislate, in response to the desires of the people and in conformit y with grants of power . in the Constitution . Indeed, C ongress has no role at all. T he President proclaims a law, t hen gives it statutory force by merely publishing it in t he Federal R egister. Thus, President Kennedy, by Executive Orders which bypass Congress, has already crea ted a body of " laws " t o transform our Republic into a dictatorship - at the discretion of the President. T he ex t raordinary principle ( th at the President can do anything he pleases in time of dire emergency, and that the President alone can determine what is a dire emergency ) was proclaimed by Franklin D. Roosevelt in N ovember, 1933, and reaffirmed by the A ttorney General - and has never been challenged by the Courts or the C ongress of the United States.<"> Ca n W e Trust Our Leaders? J t is a dangerous delusion to feel that we can trust our President to tell us the truth; trust him not to exercise authority unnecessarily; trust him to act only in the best interest of the American nation. Page 170 Page 171 �Let us not forget what happened on October 29, 1962. On that day, Arthur Sylvester (Kennedy's Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs) admitted that the Kennedy Administration was giving the public false information about Cuba. Sylvester defended official falsification of the news as 1 " sayproper (( management ,, and " contro, ing that the "generation of news" by officialdom is "part of the weaponry that a President has" in the "solution of political problems" - and that the end of creating, in the minds of the people, the correct attitude about governmental programs, justifies the means. <5 > Let us remember also President Kennedy's statement on May 12, 1963, concerning the dispatch of Federal troops to Alabama. The President said: "This Government will do whatever must be done to ... uphold the law of the land . ... The Birmingham agreement was and is a fair and just accord ... . The Federal Government will not permit it to be sabotaged by a few extremists on either side who think they can defy both the law and the wishes of responsible citizens by inciting or inviting violence. "<6 > Unless there is obvious and significant violation of legitimate federal authority, the President ( under the Constitution ) has no right to send troops into a state to maintain order, except on invitation of the government of that state. In Alabama, the Governor had asked the President not to send troops. No federal authority was being violated. The "law of the land" which the President mentioned was a figment of his own mind because no federal law, or even federal court order, was involved. The "Birmingham agreement" which the President said he would enforce with federal troops, was a private agreement between whites and negroes, dealing, primarily, with the question of job opportunities for negroes. As to "inciting or inviting violence" in Alabama, the President himself was guilty of that, by continual agitation of the delicate situation, specifically by calling Mrs. Martin Luther King to express concern when her husband ( a professional agitator, with a communist front and jail record) was behind bars for inciting civil disturbance. As to the need for federal troops to suppress violence: the total of human suffering which the race riots have caused in Birmingham is hardly worthy of notice in comparison with the continual savage depradations upon white people, by negro hoodlums, in the city of Washington, D. C. In the Alabama affair, the President proves that he does misrepresent facts to the people and does use illegal and unnecessary power to serve his own political ends. As to whether the President can be trusted to act only in the best interests of the nation - note two cases which indicate otherwise: El Chamizal and Panama. EL CHAMIZAL-The Treaty of Guadalupe, February 2, 1848, established the Rio Grande River as the boundary between Texas and Mexico. Between 18 64 and 18 6 8, the Rio Grande eroded a large portion of the high Mexican south bank and formed an alluvial deposit ( about 6 3 0 acres in size) on the United States side of the river. This occurred just south of El Paso, then a small border town. As El Paso grew, it took in the great alluvial deposit which came to be called El Chamizal. In 189 5, the Mexican government made a formal claim to El Chamizal. The American government maintained, in effect, that the middle of the River was the boundary line, and that all soil north of that boundary line was American soil, regardless of how it got there. On June 24, 1910, the Mexican and United States governments agreed to let an Arbitration Commission ( composed of one Mexican, Page 172 .one American, one Canadian) decide whether El C hamizal belonged to the United States or t o Mexico. T he Arbitration C ommission refused to decide the question. Instead, the Commission decided, on June 1 5, 1911, that El Chamizal should be divided between Mexico and the United States. The United States government would not accept that decision, which the Arbitration Commission had not been empowered to make. The issue became dormant for more than fifty years, except fo r an occasional political speech by some Mexican demagogue who whipped up hatred for the United States and gathered votes for himself by denouncing the El Chamizal "land grab." President Kennedy reopened the old El Chamizal sore. Trying to win Mexican support for his Alliance for Progress, Kennedy quietly opened negotiations with the Mexican government, to work out a means of giving Mexico the 630 acres of United States territory, which, meanwhile, had become part of the downtown section of modern El Paso. Kennedy got support from the city government of El Paso and from certain business interests there, by promising tremendous outIays o f taxpayers ' money to (( compensate ,, the city for the loss of territory. m An article in T he Dallas Morning News, May 28, 1963 , reported information, from "authoritative sources," that the United States and Mexico would announce within the nex t few days a settlement of the El Chamizal dispute. PANAMA - Many events and circumstances ( too numerous to review at this time) indicate that Kennedy is also planning to surrender American control of the Panama Canal, either to the government of Panama or to a United Nations agency. Following the example set by Eisenhower, Kennedy has already weakened the American position by permitting the flying of the Panama flag alongside the Stars and Stripes in the Canal Zone, thus showing a Panamanian "titular" sovereignty over ou r territory. Asto the question (if there be a question ) of whether the Kennedy Administration wants a socialist dictatorship in the United States - we need only to read one publicat ion of the U. S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. United Nations officials - realizing that the massive outpouring of American tax dollars ( in the U ~ited States and abroad ) is rapidly building a one-world socialist system; realizing that most of that spending is done under the guise of arming to resist communism; and realizing that the Kennedy Administration is determined to disarm the U nited States - grew concerned about the reduction of American governmental spend ing which disarmament might bring. On September 22, 196 1, the UN Secretariat requested that the United States furnish information on "the economic and social consequences of disarmament in the U.S." Kennedy's U .S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency prepared a report to reassure the United Nations officials. T he report, published in July, 1962, says, in essence, that disarmament will not su bstantially reduce the spending of American tax dollars, but will deflect t hose dollars into such programs as social security, federal aid to education, urban renewal, financing mass transit systems, expand ing public health and mental h ealth activities, and increasing foreign aid channelled through United Nations agencies. Only An Emergency Is Needed Any thoughtful person who has watched the arrogant and lawless behavior of the Kennedy Administration; its studied efforts to deceive the people and the Congress; its habit of appeasing foreign powers (particularly communist and pro-communist powers) by sacrificing American national interests; and Page 173 �its relentless drive toward the total socialist state - reasonably fears that Kennedy might t ake advantage of some emergency to make himself a dictator, in accordance with the plan which his Executive Orders have already outlined. T he May, 19 6 3, W heat Referendum (when farmers repudiat ed Kennedy 's farm program, in the fac e of Kennedy's threats and promises) is only one of man y indic ations of a growing political revolt against the Kennedy Administration. Kennedy has enough cunning to see this. If his prestige and influence continue to sink, what will he do in 1964 if he feels he cannot win re -election? W ill he accept the verdict of elections and surrender the power so dear to him ? Or will he make himself a dictator, by creating an "emergency"? What kind of emergency could he create? Since the temperamen t and disposition of the President became apparent, in the first months of his Administration, there h as been anxiety that he might arrange a wa r for the United States in 1964, if he fel t that necessary for his own re -election. This anxiet y is by no means unfounded. It deepened in lat e 1962 when Kennedy made war- like gestures about Cuba for the purpose of getting New Frontier supporters elected to Congress. There is another possible emergency already building up under the senseless and ceaseless prodding of the President and his "' brother, the Attorney General: an emergency involving racial conflict in the United States. Note this grim paragraph from the May, 1963, issue of H. du B. Reports, a newsletter written in Paris, France, by the extremely well-informed Hilaire du Berrier: "The governments of Western Europe are receiving alarming reports which touch on America's internal stability. Their informants put it bluntly: A development has taken place within the past few weeks which can shake America, and a crisis in America can endanger the West. The NAACP has con- sistently expressed embarrassment at the violence and anti-White declaration s of another group, the Black Muslims, who preach a distorted mohammedanism under the leadership of a former factory hand, Elijah Poole, now known as Elijah Muhammad. The NAACP's moderate leaders have acquired both sympathy and support by repudiating Black Muslim advocacy of terrorism and black supremacy. However, according to reliable reports reaching governments around the world ( though not the American public), the NAACP and Elijah Muhammad's followers have formed a common front, which means that the more violent leaders have assumed direction. The focal points for a sudden, brutal outbreak are now New York, Detroit and Chicago, Black Muslim strongholds where for five years Elijah Muhammad's lieutenants have been organizing an elit e militia and stocking arms." The Black Muslims want negro supremacy, and openly advocate murder of white people until all whites in the United States are either exterminated or reduced to bondage. The NAACP has made an elaborate pret ense of "repudiating" the Black Muslims movement, but there are many indications t hat the NAACP and the Black Muslims are working h and-in-glove: the NAACP warning that if their particular brand of violence is not f ully supported , the bloodier violence of the Black Muslims is inevit able. U nited .States Representative Adam Clayton Powell (Democrat, New York ) , n egro Chairman of the House Ed uca tion and Labor Committee, is a life -member of t he NAACP. Ye t he has openly associated himsel f with the Black Muslims movement . He recently spoke gloatingly on a national television program abou t how the negro "has the white man running scared. "( 9> The head of the NAACP in Washington, D. C. (where negro criminal violence against white people is creating something akin to a reign of terror) said, on a national television program in early May, 1963, that negro violence is coming and that the NAACP will promote the violence if whites do not immediately give the negro what he demands. What does he demand? Absolute legal equality with whites? Not at all! The most explosive racial situation in America is not in the South, but in New York City - where the white man's right to own and dispose of private property and his right to choose his own associates have been violated to grant negroes so-called "anti-discrimination" laws. In New York, negroes have no trouble exercising their voting rights. There are no legal barriers to school integration. Housing laws make it illegal for private realtors to refuse rental or sale on racial grounds. And "fair employment" laws make it illegal for private employers to refuse employment to negroes because of race. Yet, the negroes of New York City, prod- ded by Black Muslim and NAACP leaders and by men like Adam Clay ton Powell, are more restless than ever before. Now they are demanding enf arced social and economic equ ality with white people - which means nothing less than confiscation of the property and earnings of white people (whose superior abilities give them superior earning power ) in order to give negroes what they lack innate ability to earn. In New Rochelle, New York; in Berkeley, California; in Englewood, New Jersey; in Nashville, Tennessee; in Baltimore, Maryland ; in Birmingham, Alabama; in Detroit, Michigan; in Greenwood, Mississippi; in Chicago, Illinois; in Washington, D. C . - all across the land, racial tensions are growin g every day.

This situation could become the "emergency" which projects John F. Kennedy into absolute dictatorship. What To Do It may very well be that · President Kennedy will never try to make himself a dictator, or involve the nation in war just to get himself re-elected. Despite the blueprint for dictatorship already prepared by Kennedy's Executive Orders; and despite abundant indications that Kennedy is capable of creating a pretext for seizing power if he fears defeat at the polls in 1964, it is quite likely that none of this will happen. But the very possibility - however remote - should be removed. Congress could remove it, and probably would, if there were sufficient public demand. Congress should abolish (by withholding funds, if necessary) the whole federal civil defense, and "emergency planning," setup. In time of emergency or disaster, individuals and communities would be infinitely better off in looking after themselves, than in waiting for direction and dictation from federal bureaucrats. Beyond that, Congress should submit an amendment to repeal the income tax amend- i ment. The corrupt, oppr~ssi)ve income tax system feeds all the plans for socialist dictatorship in the United States. Cut off the excess tax money, and the evil plans will wither and die. The public could demand that Congress enact a law providing that all appropriations will be withheld from any agency of government trying to initiate any program which has not been authorized by Congress through formal, constitutional, legislative process. A Congress which would do t~t would go further, and reverse the settled trend toward dictatorship in the United S_tates.

Born in Missouri, reared in Texas, D an Smoot went to SMU in Dallas, getting BA and MA degrees in 1938 and 1940. In 1941, he joined the faculty at Harvard as a Teaching Fellow in English, doing graduate work for a doctorate in American Civilization. In 1942, he left Harvard and joined the FBI. As an FBI Agent, he worked for three and a half years o n communist investigations in the industrial Midwest; two years as an administrative assistant to J. Edgar Hoover on FBI headquarters staff in Washington; and almost four years on general FBI cases in various p arts of the nation. In 195 1, Smoot resigned from the FBI and helped start Facts Forum. On Facts Forum radio and television programs, Smoot spoke to a national audience, g iving both sides of controversial issues. In July, 1955, he resigned and started his present independent publishing and broadcasting business - a freeenterprise operation financed entirely by profits from sales: sales of T he Dan Smoot Report, a weekly magazine; and sales of a weekly news-analysis broadcast, to business firms, for use on radio and television as an advertising vehicle. The Report and the broadcast give only one side in presenting documented truth about important issues - the side that uses the American Constitution as a yardstick. The Report is available by subscription; and the broadcasts are available for commercial sponsorship, anywhere in the United States. If you think Dan Smoot is providing effective tools for A mericans fighting socialism and communism, you can help immensely - by helping him get more customers for his Report and broadcasts.

And for me as a citizen along with thousands of others are not for it now or ever. We can see why you are for the negroes they put you 1n office. And you think they will put you in again. I am sure the white people want. I fot one will not ever. I did not vote for you the first time and want the second.

I assume this was your formal announcement to the people of Atlanta that you do not intend to seek re-election to the office of Mayor. I was, to this point, pleased that I had a ctively supported and voted for you in your election to this office. I fel t then and feel now that the City of Atlanta must take a realistic approach to all problems--and at this time, particularly to segregation . There are moderates and there are extremists--extremists in both directions . I do not feel that our City has room f or an extremist-regardless of his direction. For you to go before a national television audience and give the impression that the City of Atlanta supports the very socialistic ideas put forth by the subject legislation is absolutely ridiculous. You are express ing a personal viewpoint and o ne that I feel must b e p e rsonally inclinated . You c ould not have the interest of the p e ople as a whol e at h eart .

We would resent government intervention of the nature which you are supporting if for no other reason than pride. But pride alone is not the subject at hand. Where does socialism stop? I do not mean to be disrespectful in my expressions of opinion. I am thinking these things and I am talking these things. I see no reason why I should not write them and direct them to the p e rson about which I am thinking and talking. I wholeheartedly disagree with you and I am confident that far more than the majority of the citizens of Atlanta do not agree with you.

You certainly are paying for the negro block vote that put you into office. It is disappointing that a man of your intelligence would stand up before such a committee and state that you condone allowing Federa l force to deprive the pr vate property owners of our land of the right to decide how they may use their property. Surely, after being the segregationist that you were some years back, you could not in your heart believe what you have said in your testimony unless it be for the payment of a political debt. We must stand for the constitutional rights that are ours under the Consti tution of the United States. Thos e in top offices, such as you, should stand for the enforcement of our Constitution and see that the meaning an:l intent of it is carried out until it is officially and properly amended or changed.

It i.s ironi'c al that Black,. of the Supreme Court, was a Ku-IG.ux Klan member until his appointment by the. "mighty" · Roosevelt. Now, .he is on the Negro's side. He won't be alive much longer and doesn 9 t care what be·comes o.( our country. Warren and the rest of the Supreme Court are weaklings too., So.~ our country is really in a mess! It is a disgrace that hardly anyone 1 except Negroes., have any respect for our Supreme Court or our Government. How can they when you consider the Negro pr oblem and the Cuban situati·on? One hundred thousand Cubans were allowed to come irit o Florida and with about a million Puerto Ricans already here.; mix wi:th the Negroes and cause a situation in the United States that makes every white person - North, South, East and West - sick · at the stomach. Is it possible that the Catholic Church was responsible for the Cuban sit uation to further the Catholic cause and in time get more power in the United States? Think all of this over and ·s ee if you can't do at least one constructive thing for our countryo Th:e South i:s absolutely not responsible for the Negro mess. The politicia:ns and certain unscrupulous rrewsmonger-s are the cause of it all. The South is burdened with about 30 per cent Negrn population. Certain Northern . areas ar e getting a taste of it., but blaming everything on the South. It is ·easy for politicians and certain Northern people to tell the South how to "reform";. but subject those same people to contacts with Negroes and they "wilt like a wet di.s h rag." By the way, if certain of your demands are met in the South, would you guarantee that all Kennedy children are immediately placed in integrated schools in Washington.,. D. C.? Also~ · all children and grandchildren of Senators and Gongressmen? . Will you guarantee that white people who have moved from Washington-; D. Ca be forced t o move back and live closer to Negroes? Mr.. Pre sident, you know what I mean; but I will wager t hat you will laugh at the whole idea. Your childr!:!n won •t hav-e to go into public swimming pools, eating places,, etc.; ·; where Negroes will spread disease, disorder ~d chaosf tear down breeding, culture, intelli.'gence , etc.; Don•t you realize that white peoph~ all over our country won't put up with it any more than ~our family will ? Don't be a hypocritl I have respect for your position, but God. help our countr y if something is not done to curb ambitious Negroes. Why should an inferior minority gr oup be allowed to take over?

I regret to see, however, that the differences between you and me regarding your testimony in Washington a few days ago are so great that neither I, normany of the fine Atlanta people who supported you in your bid for the mayor's office, can support, understand, admire or respect you for this action. The Atlanta Journal has reported that you are keeping some sort of tabulation o f letters received from Atlanta and other citizens regarding your posit:bn in this matter. My opinion is that you are striking a blow at one of the fundamental institutions of our democracy that could be just as damaging as an attack from a communist or other subversive group. Please record me as being 100% in opposition to your position, and as being an active opponent of your candidacy for any political office in the future.

Dear Sir: You were not voicing the opinion of the peopl e whom it is presumed you are serving when you appeared yesterday before the Commerce Committee in Washington, D. c. As you well know, the business and the political interests not to mention the tax-paying masses - are unalterably opposed to the Kennedys 1 pending Civil Rights legislation. Playing politics , as a candidate or nominee, when running for office , is anticipated but, once in office, it is expected that , of all officials, the Mayor will represent, speak for and protect the best interests of all the people. Your performance, as the Chief Executive of Atlanta, in speald.ng ONLY for political expediency, is inexcusable in my opinion - and the people of Atlanta are due a public apology. In any event, I think the people are entitled to a full and complete clarification of the apparent previously prepared statement which you read before the Commerce Committee yesterday. b/1 cc-1 ��JOHN R.

Atlanta, Georgia near Sir: We have a few comments to extend relative to your recent testimony before the Senate Commerce Commission. Your remarks to this Commission were exactly what any citizen of Atlanta, Fulton County,and the State of Georgia would expect to emanate from you. Now people in all parts of the United States have been enlightened to the fact that Atlantans have developed a profound propensity for electing Cretins to represent them in the Mayor's Office. In this respect they deserve precisely what they have, nothing. Anyone who would embrace the sick philosophy of such insidious dolts as Jacob Javits, Hubert Humphrey, Clifford Case, Joseph Clark , Kenneth Keating and Company obviously belong t o the same cabal clique of "New Frontier" social reformers who would integrate anything and everything thereby attaining a l ittle worldly Utopia where everyone is equal and lives harmoniously by the Golden Rule. We trust these de spots will finally be satisfied when they have eventually reduced .America to a second class nation of Plebians. The framers of the United States Constitution would revolt in horror at the attempts to warp and desecrate it by the radical progressive liberals. Given time the American people will eventually take care of these tyrants at the polls . Yours very truly, ~ - ~. ~ ~ f'- .. - , ~ ~~ C. A. and Frances Laderoute �WILLIAM B. WELLBORN P, 0 .

This is y our privilege; but I do not think y ou rep r e sente d the gen er al thinking of the City of Atlanta and cer tainly not t he State of Geo rgi a . The t rend is t h at the Mawor, m d oth er City of f icials fo r that mat t er, must def i nitel y c ater to the negro vote to hold t heir jobs ; for the simple r e as on t ha t the ~egro is going to control t he Cities. This will probably be good for the St ate. Most of the w:J.i te voters are leaving the Citi es. The negros that are not going North are going :mnto the Citi e s. I travel around quite a little and I find t he people are r ather disgusted wi t h their Capitol City . This should c au s e consider able Jevelopment of r e si dential s ections ou tside of the Ci ties; and business, p articul ar l y s ervic es and ret ail , will f ollow. I look for consi derabl e development of s mall towns in Georgi a . Rural Georgia, will stop coming to Atlanta for recreation and trade, and p erhaps develop t heir own. They will make t heir money in t h e Cities, sinc e t he Government @.d big business is t here, but t h ey will spend i t elshwher e . I find t his quit e true in ot her States , particularl y in the Pi edmont of Sout h Carolina. This may be t he b e s t thing t 1at has happ ened to us so far; it may be good. In our own city t he good solit home owni ng people are moving out; most of which are ci t y t ax payers and voters .

I also no t i c e a trend for motels moving into t he City ; all of whom are non t ax payers and non voters . Why do you suppose Lenox, Belvedere, and others moved so ~ out; exc ept t o ge t nearer to t hese home om1ers moving out of the Cit y . Of course, the Cit y i-d.11 try to f orce their way in on them; but t his will take time, as well as ot her things will t ak e dtime and lots of i t.

Dear Sir: Refer ence is made to a porti on of y ou:e statement to the Senate Comrn.er c e Committ ee r equesting passage of a pub lic accomodations l aw requiring all r estaurants, hotel s and other businesses to serve negroes . Said portion of your statement was published i n the Atlanta Constitution on Tuesday, July 30, 1963 . I can only c onje cture what was containe d in the par•t of your s tat ement to the Com.mitt ee which was not pub lished . Could it be that y ou a lso asked t hat Ge org ia be placed under martial law to be g overned at bayonet point by Federal carpetbaggers and Southern scalawags for the next century? As a perceptive man of iiride experienc e , I d o not agree v1i th any of the nox ious effluvium which y ou poured out s o copi ously . In this tarradiddle you said, 11 Je are fortunate that we have one of the world famous editorial spokesmen for reason and moder ation on one of our white newspapers. rt I suppose y ou meant Ralph McGi ll. Well, Ralph McGill has the hollow title of PublisheB of the Atlanta Constituti on, by Atlanta Newspapers , Inc., oi...mers, the majority stockholders and board of dire ctors of whi ch corporation, judging by it's product, must have a taste for knic k -nacks . Ralph McGill is a bulbous hypocrite who whines and moans , gripes and groans without end about how the poor negro is dis criminated against . Now just how sincere is this hyp ocrit e? Accord ing to the population percentages given by you, there should be a negro editor and a negr o colwnnist on the Constitution s t aff and three fif t hs of the front office employees should be negroes . Why are such negroes not employed? Your statement to the Senate Commerce Committee asked for laws which would des t roy individual property rights, laws which would require for enforcement the setting up of a murderous dictatorship in what has been heretofore a free country. You are an advocate of despotism and will be remembered as a cheap political toady who sold out his own race. If you continue to sniff at the political backside of Kennedy long enough it is possible that you may be appointed to a position among the socialist and communist-accomodator lunatic fringe with which he has surrounded himself. Wbo knows? You may hit the JACKPOT. nr. Mayor, your picture which appeared with the bilge referred to bears a silly smirk which I believe caused me to have an attack of diarrhea . To conclude, I wish a pox on you and Ralphie and the rebellious negro organizations which both of you serve. If the two of you are not being paid to betray the white race, then it must be that your silly brains have turned to rotten mush. Yours with contempt, �..

You say that the responce, in favor, of your ASSASANINE statements before the Senate Committee is two to one in favor of them, ONLY niggers, reds and pinks would be in favor of them as you put them before that connnittee. IF that unamerican statute was put on the books, it would finish the few liberties that still remain to the American Citizen and make a police state of the United Stat~s as Atlanta is today under your dii,ections. I was born and raised inside the city limits of the city of Atlanta but I am beginning to be ashamed of that fact because of its dirty politics. I have been wondering HOW long it would be before you would be assasinated for making such statements before a so-called FREE America. You do not have to worry about me as I wouldn't put my life in danger by trying to eradicate such VERMIN as y01. I voted against you when you ran for the Office of Mayor and I believe that I would have voted for a nigger before I would have for you as they would at least have had the decency to have let the majority of the population have~ rights left to them and not make a police state of the city limits of Atlanta. I do not believe that they would allo.,~ the nigger law breakers go scot free after they had been arrested either, as many have under your regime. I do not believe that I can express myself any stronger against your stupid statements before the Connnittee, also the statement that we do not have any more communists in the city of Atlanta than we have men on the moon, I believe that we have PLENTY of them in Atlanta - look at the number of whites that are picketing with the niggers and others that are agreeing with them.

  • Text: Meneks Corner S.C. July 31.'63. RTE 3. Mayor Ivan Alben Jr. Atlanta Ga. Dear Sir. Newspaper account of your testimony in regards the ‘Castro Brothers’ lop-wided G6ivil Rights Bill I read with disgust and loathing. in their power mad eagerness to win for themselves the votes of a class of people who are ill fitted and morally and mentally unfit te vote, the ‘Castro Brethers:* arrogantly, contemptuously and otherwise utterly disregard the Civil Rights: of decent and respectable Whites throughout the nations Whites who should have the right to choose their associates and: their children's associates. God made Whites and God made colored. In his infinite wisdom he did not mix them. Today,unprincipled Whites have the effrontery to mix the races as though the Almighty Dod had made a mistake. Oh how I loatk amd despise such. Between 80 and 85 percent of the negro race are morally, mentally, and other- wise unfit to have the privklege of voting. They breed like cats and dogs and are easily led and influenced te vote in ble blocs: regardless of the harm or benefit to their state or nation. Unprincipled politiciams whe do not hesitate to stoop to anything know this. ind because of this knowledge they woo the negro vote with a Civil Rights Bill: feoling the negroes by preaching what they do not practice. How illuminating, how very illuminating it would be to publicize the follow- ing:- How many of the Kennedy children: children end grandchildren of Supreme Court justices: of lesser Justices attend schoold attended by negro children. How many of such children are taught by negro teachers? How many of such children attend churches where negroes and Whites sit to- gether?How many of the above named class go to negro doctors for medical advice? How many of the above named class have negroes living in homes adjacent to their homes, or even-in close proximity? How many of the above named class would welcome or encourage their child- ren to marry into the negro race, or vice-versa? dust why are there no negroes among Kennedy's personal bodyguards? Just why were no negroes included in Kennedy's recent trip abroad? Other things coulé be ascertained and if the truth were known- HYPOCRISY of the worst kind would be uncovered amongst those bent on cramming willy-nilly down the throats of respectable whites the nefarious ‘Castro Bres,' Bill. If the negro race only realized it, the respectable White Southerner is a far better and more worthwhile friend than the unprincipled politicians in Wash- ton and elsewhere. I know megroes for whom I have a lot more respect than I have for the ‘Castro Bus.'and the other political hypocrites who fool the negro race. IT IS PATHETIC, DISGUSTING, and NHUSEATING in the extreme to know and read about the loud-mouthed Whites who are traitors to their race and their nation by supinely being YES MEN for the ‘Castro Bros.' in endorsing the contemptible CRB. On the other hand, this nation should be more than proud of men like Strom Thurmond and Donald Russell of S.C.: Geo. Wallace of Ala.,: and Ross Barnett and Joe Patterson of Miss. All have the courage to fight for the best interest of this nation. The ‘Castro Bres.' and their numerous YES MEN should be sent to the Congo where they belong and not be allowed to make a CUBA of America as they are doing.

  • Text: Dear Sir: Will you please help me get the foilowing information from the Supreme Court? Before I start my next year's crop, I would like to get things straight, as the Supreme Court has changed many things that our Constitution and Fore Fathers stood for. First: I would like to sell my hogs, but all of them ,re white and I don't know whether I can sell my hogs unless I have an equal number of black ones to go along with them. Second: I would like to know if I will be premitted to plant white and black peas in separated rows of equal lenght, or will I have to mix them together? Third: Would it be permissable to separate my white and black cattle by use of fence, or do I have to let them run together? Fourth: My white coon dog won't hunt with my black dog. Should I get an injunction to make them hunt together? The black dog won t even hunt coons, and the white dog won't hunt birds. Do you suppose the judge can use legal persuasion on this, or wili Kennedy send troops to make them hunt together? if they convict our Governor and send him to concentration camp, may i take him mixed peas and parboiled eggs, coon meat and blackbird pie to supplement the diet the Yankees are jamming down our throats? I would like to get a copy of the words to the Star Spangled Banner. My copy is all mixed up with Old Black Joe, and it just doesn't sound right. I want to learn the National Anthem version so I can be 100% right. 5,000 years ago Moses said: "Pick up your shovels, mount your ass, and I will send you to the Promised land." 5,000 yeers later Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your ass, light up a catel, this is the Promised Land." Now if you don’t watch out, Kennedy will take away your shovel, sell your camel, kick your ass, and give the niggers the Promised Land. I'm glad I am an Americen. I wish I were free. I wish I were a little dog end Kennedy was a Tree 3 é P
