trick to straighten lumber

How can I get a true straight edge on a 1x6 pine board that has a warp along it's length? I do not have a joiner, just a table saw.

clamp it to a true straight edge to run against the fence and rip it.

You really can't straighten warped lumber. Cut a straight line, okay, but the peice is still warped. Buy a new 1 x 6.
