Elaborate "credentials” com

ing that provisions had been made
for verification of the holder’s
identity “on the theory that this
certificate might fall into the
hands of an enemy.” In his re
cently issued call to the conven
tion, Smith makes a flattering
analogy:

The call to the convention is
replete with Smith’s standard
rabble-rousing cliches, and aiso
contains the following assertions:
Recently I conferred with some
of the most important leaders of
the South and they tell me that
this program of Christian Nation
alism is the one program that will
break the one-party machine
south of the Mason-Dixon line.
Millions of white Christians from
the N or th. from the East, and
from the West are ready to join
hands with the great Christian
South in the preservation of our
dignity, our self-respect, our tra
dition, our religion, and our race.
Gerald L. K. Smith eagerly
proffered his “support” to the
rump convention of “Dixiecrats”
held in Birmingham, Alabama.
His offer was rejected by South
Carolina’s Governor J. Strom
Thurmond, Presidential nominee
of the group, who issued the fol
lowing statement on July 19th:
We do not invite and we do not
need the support of Gerald L. K.
Smith or any other rabble-rousers
who use race prejudice and class
hatred to inflame the emotions
of the people.

NEW YORK (JTA) —Editorial
opinion in a large majority of the
nation’s daily newspapers sup
ported establishment of the new
state of Israel, according to a
survey released here by the Anti-
Defamation League of B’nai
B’rith.
Review of 200 leading news
papers from all sections of the
country disclosed that more than
half of them editorialized on
Israel’s dramatic declaration of
independence. Os these 64 percent
were favorable, 32 percent were
noncommittal. Only four percent
were critical or antagonistic in
tone.
A second check of editorial
comment, this time based on how
editors reacted to President Tru
man’s de facto recognition of
Israel, revealed almost the same
percentage of approval. However,
here unfavorable comment rose to
19 percent, though it was not
directed toward Israel but criti
cized Truman’s recognition as “a
political device.”
