VOLUME XXXI —NO. 229 MOUNT VERNON, ILLINOIS — WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, 1951 25c PER WEEK BY CARRIER STOP PUMPS IN HUGE IRANIAN OIL FIELD BROYLES BILL IS VETOED BY STEVENSON Governor 'Respects' Backers' Motives But Sees Danger to Liberties in Anti-Red Bill. DOUBT BROYLES CAN • OVERRIDE THE VETO Mt. V. Senator Charges Stevenson Uses Bad Judgment in Veto as in Alger Hiss Case. By Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, 111.. June 27.— Scratched by a veto, the Broyles- Young anti-Communisl bill was dead today—barring a successful move to override Governor Stevenson's disapproval. Few vetoes penned by an Illinois governor' have been erased. Legislative leaders privately doubted that SenE(tor Paul Broyles (R-Mt. Vernon), the bill's chief siwnsor, could make good a promised attempt in this case. To override requires 34 Senate votes plus 102 in the Jiouse, wliere the measure received only 87 on passage. Broyles issued a statement saying: "It seems evident now that he (Stevenson) insists upon following the same sympathetic philosophy toward Communists thai led him to send a character deposition in behalf of Alger Hiss. Broyles said the governor used "bad judgement" in both instances. , The legislation provided that persons convicted 'if a broad range of subversive act< could bc^ imprisoned ui-* to 20 y,,;iif'= i'^-^d a niaximurii of .?20,uui/. " Rotipects Backers' Motives In re.jecting it yesterday, Stevenson said lie respected the "motives ^nnd „.patriot ism" of the bill's backets, arid like them, viewed the Communist parly as a "real and sinister" danger to the republic. But he added: "We must not burn down the house to kill the rats." The bill is "wholly unnecessary" he said, and contains "more of • danger to the liberties we seek to protect than of security for the republic." "It reverses our tradition concept of justice by placing upon the accused the burden of proving himself innocent. "It makes felons of persons who may be guilty of more of bad judgment .than of anything else. "It jeopardizes the freedom of sincere and honest citizens in an attempt to catch and punish subversives." The governor said. • Under the bill, top penalties would be meted out for any act "intended to overthrow, destroy or assist in the overthrow of the state or federal government by force or othei' unlawful means. They also could bo imposed for advocating or teaching the commission of such acts and destroying records or hiding funds of subversive organizations. Joining or remaining a member of an organization known to be subversive after Jan. I, 1952 could bring a five year penitentiary sentence and a $5,000 fine. The governor said enforcement provisions wez'o the "most objectionable" features of the bill. These included .setting up a special assistant attorney 'general with the duty of forwarding to local prosecutors all "information" received on suspected subversive persons in their areas. State's attorneys would be obliged to lay such data in its entirety before the grandjui'y. This would interfere, Stevenson .said, with the responsibility of a prosecutor to protect a citizen through "sifting the many rumors, charges and counter - charges" which come to his attention. "I can see nothing but grave peril to the reputations of innocent people in this perpetual ion of rumors and hoai'say," the governor said. His criticism 7 'eKarding the necessity of proving innooenco related to sections of the bill which require loyalty statements of all public employes and describe the type of person public employers can hire. "One who wishes to work i ^for the state or 1o teach in a school must himself carry the burden of proving the absence of any reasonable grounds for belief that he is subversive or esen belongs to a subversive organization," Stevenson said. Such a person, he .said, might be subjected to "malicious charges of disloyalty." Traitors Would Lie Besides, he continued, no "real traitor" would hesitate to sign a loyalty oath. "Really dangei'ous subversives and saboteurs will be caught by careful, constant, professional investigation, not by pieces of paper," he said. The FBI knows who these peo- OK NON-REFERENDUM SEWAGE PLANT BONDS Legislature Sends 21 Pollution Bills to the Governor, One to Permit Cities to Issue Bonds Without Holding an Election. By Assecinted Press SPRINGFIELD, 111., June 27.— The Illinois House yesterday approved and advanced to the governor, a series of 21 bills dealing with pollution. The measures were recommended by a legislative commission which studied the subject. One bill would authorize cities accused of ixiUuting streams to issue non-referendum bonds for building sewage treatment plants. Officials in Gibson City and other municipalities have tried repeatedly, but failed, to win voter approval of bond issues for remedying conditions criticized by state agencies. Other measures strengthen the power of the state Sanitary Water Board in cracking down on pollution. Tax Imijorted Cigarettes A bill to allow collection of the Illinois tax on cigarettes imported into the state also headed toward Governor Stevenson's desk. The House yesterday completed legislative approval of the measure, which is expected to swell Illinois revenues by $3,500,000. The extra receipts woilld come from taxing smokes uurchased by mail order frcyn Indiana and Missouri. The legislation would apply the Illinois three cents a package levy to imports by making it a "use" tax. The tax on cigarettes bought within the state would be unchanged. ASK RUSSIA TO SPELL OUT PEACE PLAN U. S. Ambassador Kirk Calls on Gromyko in Moscow. ANNUAL VETS REUNION OPENS HERE MONDAY By Associated Press WASHINGTON, June 27.—Secretary of State Acheson said today the best guarantee for U. S. acceptance of a Korean cease-fire would be withdrawal of Chinese Communist troops beyond the Yalu river. Acheson proposed a "phased withdrawal" of all foreign troops in Korea after an armistice. In the event of such a settfc- ment, he declared, there would have to be a full realization that its violation "would be a very dan-, gerous step and would endanger world peace." U. S. ASKS ^ r^ABIFICATION , UN'ITLlJ*;s*:\nONS, N. Y ., June 27—The West pressed Moscow today to spell out what Jacob A. Malik meant by the Russian proposal for a Korean cea.se-fire. Acting on Washington's' instruction, U. S. Ambassador Alan G. Kirk called on Ajjdrei Groray- ko, deputy Soviet foreign minister in Moscow. They talked for 20 minutes, and Moscow dispatches said clarification of Malik's suggestions was expected by the end of this week. Secretary of State Acheson said the United States had not learned the intentions behind hte Malik proposal, "but we hope today will bring further light." Malik, Soviet delegate to the United Nations, proposed Saturday that the belligerents in Korea open talks about a cease-fire coupled with mutual withdrawal of forces from the 38th parallel. U. N. Secretary General Trygve Lie returned to New York from Norway reiterating he is "always hopeful."* Informal Tallis On Informal talks were taking place among United Nations delegates here, in Washington and in other world capitals on the Soviet proposal. But in effect the statesmen were just talking to themselves until Russia was ready to explain further the cease-fire proposal voiced Saturday in a U. N. broadcast by Soviet "Delegate Jakob A. Malik.

Bees Take Over New Distillery By Associated Press WINDSOR, Ont., June 27.—The Blithesome buzzing of blear-eyed bees slowed up construction work on a new plant of a distillery (Hiram Walker) in suburban Walkerville. The bees, about 20,000 of them, started a hive right above a syrup tank. Steam fitters, riggers, riveteers and cement pourerers froze dead in their tracks. Finally Clifford Hanes, a crane operator and one-time bee keeper, waited until late in the day when the roisterers had passed out, and scraped them into a box. He also obtained a half pound of honey. Said it tasted a lot like rye, rye whiske.v, that is. LEGISLATURE PASSES TRUCK LICENSE HIKE Measure for $20,000,000 Increase Next Year and $8,000,000 More in 1954 Is Adopted. By Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, 111., June 27.— The Illinois Legislature today completed passage of a bill to raise truck license fees $20,000,000 starting next Jan. 1 and another $8,000,000 in 1954. The measure advanced to Governor Stevenson by a 50 to 0 Senate vote adopting recommendations of a Senate-House Conference Committee. The H o us e okayed them an hour earlier. House approval by a vote of 108 to 32 crumbled opposition of the trucking industry which fought the measure every step of its way through the legislature. It was a big victory for the governor, who sought an immediate $28,000,000 truck fee boost as a main feature of hisr program for rebuilding the Illinois road system. The Senate went along on his figure last May 1, but the bill ran into stiff resistance in the House which finally slashed the figure to $19,000,000. See Nickel Gas Tax Backers of the Stevenson program predicted that settlement of the truck license question would speed enactment of a two cents increase in the gasoline tax to a nickel a gallon. The nickel gas tax bill, already endorsed by the Senate, is a second key part of the administration program. It will receive a passage vote in the House later this week. City Buses Exempt In its present form, the truck fee measure would exempt from any increases buses operating entirely over citj' streets. This would cut back additio'hal receipts by an estimated $300,000. Adoption of the conference report was urged by Rep. Richard Stengel (D-Rock Island), the governor's House spokesman on roads, and by Rep. Reed F. Cutler (R- Lewistown). Both had a hand in preparing it. Stengel said defeat of the proposal would jeopardize the gas tax boost and might defer for another two years any effective attempt to improve the highway system. Cutler said before the second step of the truck licenses increase goes into effect lawmakers would have a chance to study substitute plans. If any better method of taxing trucks is found, he said, the legislature could enact it at the assembly's 1953 regular session. Offers His Eye For a Fair Trial By Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, 111., June 27.— A man who is in jail at Marion today offered one of his eyes to Attorney General Ivan A. Elliott if Elliott would "see that I get a fair trial." Elliott, who is sightless in his right eye, turned down the offer, saying it was an "impossible suggestion and can have no bearing on your case." He said it was the court's duty to assure that the man, whose identity was not revealed, has competent counsel for his defense. The prisoner, in a letter to the Attorney General, said he was being held on a charge of killing a man. Duane Leach, Williamson county state's attorney, said the only man now in jail there on a murder charge is Luther Frey of Marion. Trial has been set July 23 on a murder charge in the Dec. 6, 1950. death of Paul Rametta of Marion. He was killed in a downtown Marion street gun duel after an altercation. "If you will see that 1 get a fair trial, I will give you my eye, either one,'' the prisoner wrote to Elliott. "My bond is so high I cannot make a defense for myself. I know the court will have to appoint a lawyer but I need to be out to make a defense for myself and help the lawyer."

S. division and weakness. FIVE KlUED FORTY INJURED BY TORNADO Kansos Storm BaKers Five Blocks in Town of Wokeeny. BELL AND ZOLLER NO. 2 MINE AT ZEIGLE!? IS CLOSED DOWN By Associated Press MARION. 111., June 27.—The 31 year old Bell and ZoUer Coal Company's No. 2 mine at Zeiglor worked its last shift today, a spokesman for the Chicago firm announced. The spokesman, who refused use of his name, said the mine was being shut down because its coal has been exhausted. It would be the sixth major southern Illinois coal mine, employing a total of about 2,0C0 miners, to be closed in recent years. The last Centralia mine was closed a year after a 1947 disaster killed 111 men there. Bell and Zoller No. 1 at Zeigler was closed two yeai-s ago. Franklin County Coal Company's Freeman spur mine shut down in 1950. Last April two Saline county mines— Peabody and Dering—were closed. Zeigler No. 2 employed 350 United Mine Workers. Its shaft was sunk in 1918. In, 1928—a peak year—it employed 1,000 to produce up to 8,500 tons of coal a day. A recent report said it was producing about 4,000 tons daily. Bell and .Zoller early this year bought from Consolidated Coal Co. mines at Lake Creek near Herrin, Mt. Olive, Nason and Staunton. In 1940 it opened No. 3 south of Zeigler. By Associated Press WAKEENEY, Kas., June 27.— A tornado battered a five-block residential area of this western Kansas town early today, killing five persons and injuring approximately 40. The storm ripped the area into a mass of splintered wood and brick, uprooted trees, broke water mains, and damaged power and communication lines. Three inches of rain accompanied the wind. The injured were treated at hospitals in Wakeeney and Hays. Several wei'e reported injured critic^illy. V. E. Zimmerman, Red Cross disaster director, said 45 homes were destroyed and 28 others damaged. Hos^iitiU Crowded Hallways and the 36 rooms in the Wakeeney hospital were jammed with the injured. Many of the injured said they were awakened just before the twister struck but had no chance to take refuge in storm cellars. Wakeeney has a population of about 2,000 and is 25 miles northwest of Hays. Winds and heavy rain swept across a wide section of central and western Kansas last night and early today. In Hays trees were uprooted and some buildings damaged. Winds up to 55 miles per hour were reported at Salina. Thousands of acres of farmlands in the state are already inundated from more than a month of heavy rains.

LOUIS USES BOND PLAN TO PAYWORKERS Borrows from Bonks ond Will Repay with Judgment Bonds. By Associated Press EAST ST. LOUIS, III, June 27. —Some 300 city employes were paid a day late this week—the first time in 17 years. The workers missed their pay Monday when a bank refused to release the allotment of funds until it got a legal option on a new financial plan of the city. The wages were paid yesterday in cash. City officials said future pay will be on time and by check, the usual method. Under the new plan the city borrows money from banks to meet salaries and claims with the banks to get judgment later. When the judgment is granted, the city will issue bonds for $600,000 to pay off the indebtedness, then pay off the bonds over a long term, FERON FOE ARRESTED By Associated Press LA FLATA, Argentina, June 27 —Dr. Ricardo Balbin, leader of the opposition radical party of Argentina, was arrested yesterday as he left his home in this capital of Buenos Aires province. No reason for the arrest was made public. By Associated Press TOKYO, June 27.—Reds began pulling out of one buildup area in Korea today but poured fresh men and supplies into another center for a new try at cracking Allied lines. United Nations officers were not worried. "They hit us anywhere, at any time, in any strength," a U. N. briefing officer said. Other officers nredicted Chinese Reds would strike in the second week of July—probably down the Uijongbui-Seoul invasion corridor. Strong Communist screening forces Wednesday blocked Allied patrols probing toward four Communist buildup areas. Chinese dug in even on the flat lands south of Pyonggang to protect their major buildup, north of the former iron triangle. This is the area into which Chinese commanders were reported pouring new men and materials. East of the iron triangle Reds began hauling supplies out of a secondary buildup area near Kum- song. A four-mile Allied advance Tuesday endangered the Reds' Kumsong area. Machineguns, mortars and artillery opened up on AUies trying to approach the other two buildup points, near Inje in the east and Yonchon in the west. Talk of Truce Chief front line topic continued to be the possibility of a cease-fire agreement. But the talk didn 't affect action. Chinese were mounting an unusually strong screening force in front of their main buildup north of the triangle. The fact they were digging in on flat land—for the first time in the Korean War—indicated their determination to keep the Allies from disturbing their buildup for an attack. Front line dispatches reported increases in Red artillery fire and emplacements along the eastern front where several grenade tossing battles broke out. And in the west U. N. patrols were forced back by 105 MM field guns. Fighting was vicious, but on a small scale. Fire Bomb Reds Fifth Air Force pilots supporting ground troops with fire bombs and rockets reported they killed or wounded about 600 Reds. Most of the casualties were inflicted in the Kumsong area by two F-51 Mustang strikes. One flight caught 500 Reds firing on a U. N. tank column south of the city, where a four-mile gain was reported Tuesday. Another hit about 400 Reds closer to Kumsong, 29 miles north of the 38th parallel and east of the former Red "iron triangle." Far East air forces stepped up bomber raids on Red air fields in western Korea. Twelve fields were cratered Tuesday, and five more during the night. Communists keep repairing them for possible use by the growing Chinese air force. The Red air fleet "may be thrown fully into the battle" at any moment, U. S. Air Secretary Thomas Finletter said in Washington Tuesday. The secretary, recently returned from a visit to the Korean war front, said the Chinese have 1,000 was planes compared with only 200 last October. The entire Chinese force, he said, is in Manchuria ready for quick use in Korea. American jets patrol the border alert for a possible air invasion which might endanger U. N. air supremacy. They shot down one Red jet and damaged another Tuesday. One U. S. F-80 Shooting Star was shot down by grourw fire while strafing Red troops. U. N. warships shelled coastal highways and supported South Korean ground troops a the eastern end of the 100 -mile battje- front. By Atseciitt4 Prosi WASHINGTON, June 27.~Sec retary of State Acheson appealed urgently to Iran today to reconsider its action in the oil crisis with Britain. He asked for ah* Interniped production and shipment of oil. By AssoeUtid Priss TEHRAN, Iran, June 27—Crude oil pumping of southern Iran's largest field has been halted because of an AnglOflranian oil company decision to withdraw lt» tankers, British Ambassador Sir Francis Shepherd announced today. His announcehient came as 'a showdown appeared near in the British-Iranian oil dispute. Tension was growing over reports that all Britons would be evacuated from the oil fields. Production at the Aghajarl Field, -bout 100 miles northeast of Abadan, - site of the world's largest refinery, has been stopoed because there is no more, loading .it the de«p sea port of Bandur Mashur. Production of the Aghajarf field .is 322,000 barrels a day. Refinery Continues For Present Ambassador Shepherd estimated that production at the Abadan refinery which is fed by six other oil fields in southern Iran, could continue another 10 to 14 days before storage facilities were all used up. Premier Mohammed Mossadegh is reported preparing to summon a special cabinet meeting to discuss latest developments in his drive to nationalize the British company's holdings. Iranian leaders, already alarmed over the= news that Britain has ordered her cruiser Mauritius to Abadan, were little soothed bj the reports that British personnel—totalling about 3,000—would be evacuated soon and the Abadan refinery shut down. ^ Cruiser Stands By Ambassador Shepherd said he assumed the cruiser Mauritius already had arrived off Abadan. He said the big ship would anchor in Shattel-Arab river in Iraqi waters, only 200 or so yards from the refinery on Iranian soil. He said the cruiser was being stationed in the river to protect British property in the event of disorders. SEND WOrtfCK, CHILDRiEN HOME Associattd Prtss ABADAN, Iran.

Ache, son said however, "we cannot exaggerate the critical nature of the situation and we cannot exaggerate the importance of its solution." Rep.

"There is no thought of the United States intervening in Iran either with or without congressional action," Acheson replied.
