ban by permitting entry of former
mbers of Nazi, Fascist , or Communist
nizations who joined before they were
§§ l« years old or had to join . . for pur-
poses of obtaining employment, food ra-
tions or other essentials of living."
The amendment was mainly designed
to open the gates to foreign-born wives or
other relatives of U. S. servicemen. But,
happily, it also lets down the bars to hun-
dreds of people w-ho hate the totalitarian
regimes under which they were forced to
live and now have only the desire to es-
cape from the atmosphere of tyranny that
still exists in much of Europe.
A man with genuinely democratic
sympathies living ip Hitler’s > Germany
should not be branded a Nazi just because
he didn’t join the underground and get
himself killed. If, after proper screening,
he demonstrates the sincerity of his demo-
cratic convictions and his wish to live in a
free society, there’s no reason at all hel
, By the same token, a man living in Rus-
sia or a Soviet satellite should not be stig-
matized forever as a Communist when he
has the great courage to escape those
slave lands and make his way to the free
West. He Is exhibiting the very qualities
that make him the best anti-Communist in
Some nations have done quite a lot
more than we toward a- epting displaced
persons who were refugees from the Hit-
ler-Mussolini regimes. But for the most
part, these people are no longer the great-
est problem. It is the refugees from be-
hind the Iron Curtain who today pose the
Daily they pour into the western zones
of Germany and Austria in their flight
from Communist terror. Long since they
have imposed a heavy burden upon the
economies of those nations directly in their
path. Most cannot find work, or adequate
housing. • ,, r
It is cle vr that the United States or any
oiie country cannot take all these people,
nor is any responsible official suggesting
we should. Yet it is equally evident that
the free world is wasting a great resource
if it does not somehow work out a plan for
the useful integration of these refugees in-
to the western fabric of life.
Already matters were so grave that
500 of every 1.000 who escaped the Iron
Curtain voluntarily returned to the Soviet
orbit—in desperation. Thus half of the
brave men and women, who came to the
.West’s doorstep were lost to us because we
had no way gf caring for them.
And make no mistake about it—they
were lost perfnanently. No one who dem-
| mKm onatrates such supreme disloyalty to the
should not'be considered fit for entry into - Communist regime would ever again be al-
lowed to run free. Those who return are
marked for death or slave camps.
Certainly the courageous who some-
how break the shackles deserve a better
fate than degrading poverty, death, or a
return to worse slavery than they escaped.

Perhaps the greatest of all the
leaders of the Texas Rangers was
Capt. Jack Hays, for whom Hays
County is named. Col. M. L. Crim-
niins of San Antonio has written
a most interesting biographical
John Coffee Hays was born in
Tennessee in 1817 and, on hear-
ing about the fall of the Alamo,
he came to Texas But the Battle
of San Jacinto had already been
fought when he arrived. He was
5 feet, 9 inches, weighed about
146 pounds, had black hair like
an Indian and deep blue eyes. He
never ordered a charge; he sim-
ply said, “Follow me, men.” He
was in the battle of Plum Creek
in 1840 when between 60 and 80
Commanches were killed and this
was the last time the Comanche*
ever sent a large body into Texas
to try to wipe out a town.
The Mounted Volunteers — as
the Texas Rangers were called
at first — did not wear a uni-
form. Texas was too poor to fur-
nish them with more than ammu-
nition and $30 a month to the
men and $76 to the officers.
Though only 23, Hays was com-
missioned a captain by the Texas
The men furnished their own
arms, equipment and horses. Hays
required the. horses be better than
those they pursued, and their
value around $150. Each man
had a rifle, pistol, knife, and a
small wallet for salt, ammunition
and tobacco, and perhaps some
panola as emergency ration. This
was parched corn, spiced and
sweetened. When chewed, it help-
ed to relieve thirst.
The Rangers had no tents and
relied on game for food. They
slept on a bed of grass, weeds or
brush, spreading their blanket
over that. Each man slept with
gun at side, using boots and pis-
tol under his coat as a pillow.
No obstacle could halt a Texas
Itanger. Icy streams were swum
by the side of their horses or
hanging on the horses’ tails. Some-
times a raft was used to keep am-
munition and food dry or lariat,
were tied together to form a sus-
pension line running through the
stirrups of a saddle and If Whs
pulled back and forth with equip-
ment attached to it. Hays, having
been an experienced surveyor,
knew how to keep in the direction
he wished to go and could not
The two original companies of
Rangers were expanded until there
were 500 men. The personnel was
constantly changing, due to heavy
casualties. About half the men
were killed off each year. They
were assigned a huge area to pro-
tect, from the mouth of the Rio
Grande near Brownsville to the
Colorado in the Panhandle.

TfTASHINGTON— (NBA)—It’s a wise man who knows when to quit.
Of Arkansas and Estes Kefauver of Tennessee—want to stop out of , •
the ring, to quit their current fights as champions. . jjfek I
They have delivered some jarring punches to racketeers anjlio-
chiselers in their investigations of Reconstruction Finance Corporation
and organized crime. There is a great public clamor for them to
continue indefinitely. But knowing the fickleness of public Interest,
Fulbright and Kefauver would like to step aside.
They have proved what they started out to prove—that there was
monkey-business in high places. Let the proper local authorities
clean up their own situations, as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover
recommends. _ , . , . .
Citing 30 racketeers for contempt of Congress in refusing to answer
Kefauver questions isn’t going to clean up U. S. crime. Convicting a
few Fulbright committee witnesses of perjury or income tax evasion
won’t end political influence peddling.
ATTENDANCE at the race tracks and gambling spas this summer
A will probably be greater than ever. Bookmaking business will
flourish. Patrons of the numbers racket will be just as numerous.1
Politicians will continue to be politicians.
So the bigger question raised is how to make people stop gambling
and grafting? The public mind is now in the curious position of
thinking that it’s wrgng to take a bribe, but all right to offer one, if
you can get away with it.
Senator Fulbright’s proposal for a new and larger investigation of
“ethical standards of conduct in public affairs” offers an approach to
this problem. It is not just a reform in government that’s called for
—though that would be desirable as a first step. It’s a moral yeform
of the whole people that’s needed. For it Is an old saying that, “The
people usually get the kind of government they deserve.”
When it becomes smart instead of just illegal to evade income
taxes, buy on the black market, chisel on government anti-inflation
regulations, lobby for special interest legislation, profiteer on sales
‘of government surpluses, fix parking tickets, break speed laws and
beat every federal, state and local rap—then there is something
basically wrong with the whole system of society.

What’s the difference between a racketeer who take* advantage of
loopholes in the tax laws and an oil producer or the builder of a
defense plant who asks for accelerated depreciation allowances, to
take advantage of other loopholes in the same laws?
What’s the difference between the patron of a policy game racket
who is illegally in this country and ought to be deported, and the
employer of “wetback” labor smuggled across the Mexican border in
violation of the immigration laws?
As Senator Fulbright has said, his Investigation may not have un-
covered many outright violations of the law. What it has uncovered
are many cases of presumably respectable people “hiring knavislr
lawyers to circumvent the law and enrich themselves at government
The big test now Is whether the White House and the Congress
