ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Member of The Associated Press. 5c Per Copy. Vol. CXVIi, No. 60 ALTON, ILL., MONDAY, MARCH 24, 1952 Madison Clear Of Big Scale Gambling, Jury Says in Report Urgent Need of Juvenile Detention Home Is Told By Police EDWARDSVTLLE. - Evidence discloses that large commercialized gaming and bookmaking establishments have been eliminated in Madison county, according to a report at 1:15 p.m. today of the grand jury to Circuit Judge Edward F. Barois. The grand jury reported 24 true bills and three not true. Its report covered these items in particular: Based on testimony by Sheriff Callahan and chiefs of police of all incorporated communities in the county, and other persons, the jury reported there is a serious and immediate need for a juvenile detention home in the county, and recommended that, the 'county board of supervisors give the mat- ler serious consideration and refer it: to the proper committee for action. Liquor to Minors The jury, reporting on sale of intoxicating liquor to minors, declared it finds a great majority of retail liquor licensees abide by stale and county regulations and that isolated instances of sale of liquor to minors conies to the attention of authorities usually after a lapse of time that makes investigations difficult. The jury recommended that any violation of the law against sale of liquor to minors be reported immediately to the local liquor commissioner. The jury noted its attention had been brought to rumors of sale of marijuana and other narcotics to minors in the area. The jury reported it had questioned all heads of local law enforcement agencies in the county and found such rumors are groundless On gambling, the iury's report was worded in this manner: "The chiefs of police from all the incorporated cities, towns and villages in Madison County, and tl.2 sheriff, were iniorrogatpd by the stale's attorney relative to purchasers of federal gambling or wager stamps, and commercialized gaming within their respective jurisdictions. The evidence derived from the investigation discloses that the purchasers of these stamps are not professional gamblers, but that they are, for the most part, tavern operators and proprietors of mercantile establishments and that they are not presently conducting commerciali- i gaming or bookmaking establishments within the county. L'mler Watchful Eye "The various law enforcement officers who testified have informed the grand jury that surveillance is being mad~ of the persons who have purchased stamps and the establishments, if any, operated by them, to ascertain if any state laws pertaining to commercialize;' gaming or bookmaking are being violated. "The evidence discloses that large commercialized gaining and bookmaking establishments have been eliminated in Madison county and that such gambling of a 'sneak' nature as may from time- lo-lime appear, can be eliminated by local authorities within their respective jurisdictions. "We urge all local police agencies to exercize due diligence to obtain evidence of commercialized gaming and bookmaking within Continued on I'nRC ',', Col. 3. To Ease Distress Increased Red Cross Donation Need Caused By Tornadoes Established January IS, 183& Douglas Gives Full Support To Korea War Sep. Paul H. Douglas and President Truman may be bitter toward one another. But the Chicngoan thinks "Mr. Truman made the correct decision in Korea," he told First Methodist Church official board members and a few guests at a dinner In Hotel Stratford, Sunday evening. The dinner followed Douglas' address at the church during the afternoon, on "The Christian Home and Family Life," attended by a near-capacity congregation. , Sen. Douglas kept away from anything remotely smacking of the political picture during the address at the church. Questions put to him at the dinner touched upon the subject lo some extent, and early led him inlo a discussion of the Korean question. , "f knosv Ihe Korean action is unpopular on the surface, and it was bound to be," he said. Could Help More "f think Britain, Australia, and New Zealand all could send us more men. I quite recognize the people's feeling. And yet I think Sen. Tafl goes pretty far when he calls this 'Truman's War.' " If Ihe United States hadn't made a stand, he pointed out: The Japanese Islands could have been encircled by the Reds. The Malay Peninsula, wilh 150,000,000 people, just coming out of colonization, might well have fallen lo the Commies . , . We get nearly all our supply of natural rubber and two- thirds of our tin from there, and it is the rice bowl of Asia." Wilh Malaya in the Rods' hands, he said, India and Japan "could be starved into submission. Europe would be depressed and might well wonder "what's the use." Our failure to fight back in Korea, he said "would have unleashed a perfect cascade of movement in the Copimunist direction." Sen. Douglas still expressed the belief lhat 1352 would be Ihe crucial year rather than 1953, internationally. Asked the familiar question, "Will President Truman r u n again?" he said he didn't know and he didn't think Mr. Truman did. He said he thought Mr. Truman would decide on the basis of what happens at Ihe Republican convention. "If Sen. Taff is nominated, I don't think wild horses could keep him out of the race," he said. Bui Truman, he added, "likes Ike." About Drew Pearson's recent insistence lhat Gov. Stevenson and Truman had an agreement whereby Stevenson would accept the nomination he quickly said with a wry smile: "I'm not very close to Mr. Truman," but he thought it "quite possible" Stevenson might be drawn in. Three Suggestions Addressing a capacity audience at Ihe church in Ihe alternoon, Sen. Douglas offered three suggestions to achieve clliics in government : ; 1. Establish a code of ethical j propriety for administrative offi-! cials. '2. Limit Ihe amount of money that can be spenl on a candiciale. 3. Require all senators, representatives and administrative officers with incomes of $10,000 or more to make public the source The rtlton-Wood River chapter of the American Red Cross hns been asked by the National Red Cross to contribute to'vard the relief of last week's tornado victims. Coming at the same time ns the current, annual fund campaign, the Red Cross has decided lo raise its goal 10 perc-nl, rn,. T than to conduct a separate drive to raise the necessary funds. In commenting on the local Red Cross Chapter's part in the relief of the many tornado victims, Henry McAdnms, campaign chairman, said: "The present tornado disasters, and the resulting needs of the National Red Cross in this relief work in those areas have mnde it necessary for each local chapter to increase ils contribution this year. Our goal, .vhich was formerly $38,022 will therefore be increased 10 percent to $41,8*1." In tho past six /ears, the Alton- Wood River Red Cross chapter has received much finnncinl help in times of disaster from Ihe National Red Cross which receiTes ils funds from other local chapters across the country. Aid received for relief in Ihe greater Alton-Wood River area included $1047.78 for I lie Alton fire; $4994.00 for Hartford & Wood River Jnn. '2 nnd 3, 1950; $131,449.28 f(r the Fostcrhurg tornado; and $251,000.00 for the Wood River tornado. That makes a total of $388,491.06 that hns been made available for the relief of Alton-Wood River disaster victims from the National Red Crass villi unds resulting from the generosity of people throughout the country contributed lo"their locr.l Red Cross Chapters. McAdams went on to say; "Not only docs the amount of money spent in our arcp by the American National Rod Cross in Ihe amount of $388.491.06 during the part six years put us morally in debl, but the fact: lhat in those snmc six years we contributed only $191,515.28 to Ihe \alional organisation shows that we have received $194,975.78 more than we have returned. "Thai: difference \ as due to ;he generosity of other Americans who stood ready to help us in lime of need. Now it. is our turn 1o begin to pay them back in some small way by increasing our donation to the National Red Cross by 10 percent. This added money will be used by Ihe Red Cross directly r 3i- the relief of the tornado victims in the mid-wester i area devaslated last week, "The Alton-Wood River chapter of the American Nalional Red Cross asks everyone to show his support by increasing his donation by 10 percent too. With the full cooperation of all, our local fund campaign will be successful in reaching its new higher goal to enable the Red Cross to fulfill its humanitarian responsibilities." The current Red Cross fund drive will continue to March 31. Since there is no house-to-house solicitation, those who will nol be contacted elsewhere a.'ff asked to send Iheir contribution to the Red Cross at 7 Alby street. Allon. River Parkway Hearings Set For Tuesday Enlarged New School District Gets Approval Only 214 Voles Against Plan: Effective On Jmifl 30 Voters Saturday, by an overwhelming majority, approved the formnlion of n new unit school district centering in Alton nnd Including nine rural districts. The unofficial total vote found 4548 ballots cast with 4284 in favor of the new district, 214 against, and SB spoiled by the voters. In Ihe urbnn nrea, 2761 votes were cast wilh 2(iO() in favor of the new district, 10!) ngninst, nnd 52 spoiled, nnd in the rural aren, n lotnl of 1,SL':t were cnsl with 1684 "for," 105 "ngninsl" and 34 spoiled. The new district will be effective June 30, under the direction of n seven-mnn board of education, which will be elected April 19. Second Largest The newly-formed school district is second-largest in Illinois from Ihe area standpoint, covering 78 square miles nnd having almost 8000 students. Present plans are to keep elementary students in Ihe schools Ihey now attend. Pupils in grades 8 through 12 will go to junior high schools or Alton High, as most of them do now. On April 12, a regular school election in the prese'nt Allon' district will name three members to the Allon board of education. These members will serve only until the new district, nnd the new board, takes effect. Two incumbents, C. J. Schlosser, board president, and H. Edward Meyer, secretary, have indicated that they will not seek re-election. The term of Edward Hull also expires and he has nol yet filed for re-election. Four candidates have taken out petitions lo file for positions on the present Alton board. They arc Edward Wain-house. Dr. Charles Hnmphill. J. J. Micldleton, and Loyce Woolf. Election April 19 Members of the new board of education will be olected#April 19 and lake office when the new district becomes effective. The board will elect its own president, annually, and the first board elected will draw lots for the one, two, and Ihree year forms of office. Thereafter, elections will be annually. Not more than three members of Ihe board of Ihe new district may be elected from any one congressional township. The new district includes all or part of five congressional townships: Alton, Wood River, Godfrey, Fostcrburg, and Moro. Because of the stipulation that only three members of the board may reside in one congressional township, it is possible that a candidate on April 19 might have the fourth-largest total number of votes and nol be elected, if he and the three leading candidates all lived in one congressional township.

All I can say is that I hope there will be no strike—-it would haye frightful results on the mobilization program and the economy as a whole." Wilson's nides in Washington emphasized Ihnl nothing hns yet been decided on steel price relief, Wilson would not discus's what, "alternative" proposals he brought.

A " l ' (np ""' Consequently, both Ihe Warren yard of candidates," and three Republican presidential aspirants are whistling hard today as the fateful hour approaches for another primary election. The people speak a week from tomorrow, April 1. As of today, most of the political analysts believe Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio has the inside Irack and is coming fast in the race for the stale's 30 GOP convention delegates. They are not, however, ruling out Ihe amiable, silver-blonde governor of California. L'arl Warren, who is collecting friends here faster than an expert prune picker could fill a basket in his native slate. Harold Stassen, ex-governor of Minnesota, is the third major Republican candidate. He is considered, at best, a very long shot. And over Ihe whole Republican section oi the political pattern, in this l;ist week, hangs the long shadow of Gen. Dwight D. Kisen- hower. Eisenhower, the man who isn't here, can be considered a decisive factor in the destinies of the other GOP campaigns. Judging from the number of people you meet, in campaigning around, who say they "Like Ike." and Stassen organisations 'are trying hard lo identify Iheir man wilh Kisenhower, lo put the votes lhat would have gone lo him inlo their own columns.

We cnn achieve whatever rdforms we need without such e radical change in our own economic Setup.. "There are people In this country, of course, who want to go clear over to the left. I Just don't agree Ihnt America's future UBS In Ihnt direction." He wns then nskod: ''15o you think there Is 'middle way 1 that fs not too fnr over to the right and is not cerlalnly In the direction of Ihe l/?ff" Elsenhower snid that depends on the definition of "middle way" and ndded Hint "In n general way" he would agree that the proper way Is lo select, good Ideas, no matter from which side (hey come. Work Together "f think," he said,, "that we've got to begin to work together In America nnd lo diminish our frictions nnd our dissension. I think there is a wny for all of us —labor and manngemcnt and farmers — to do Ihnt within the framework of American traditions and principles." At another point, Eisenhower said that he believes the' key to being a successful president lies in the nbllily to select and handle men. His March 14 letter was written after he had swept the New Hahip- shirl presidential primary but before he got 106,000 write-in votes in the Minnesota primary last week.

"I Khali respond lo a call of duty, as I have said again and again to those who have talked to me about il," he said. "No citizen hns the right to refuse public service if the citizens want him to serve."
