ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Member of The Associated Press. 5c Per Copy, Vol. CXVII, No. 61 ALTON, ILL., TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 1952 Established January 15, City Employes' fffr ts Fmcfnred , Pay Hike Hopes Appear Doomed Council Finance Group in Session Fails to Find Revenue Hope of any substantial pay Increases for city employes in the next fiscal year faded when no additional sources of municipal revenue to meet such a purpose were uncovered at the Monday, night meeting of the city finance committee, its last session of the present fiscal period. From clubs which have bars the committee received a voluntary offer to pay 50 percent higher licenses, a step that would increase municipal revenues about $450 to $500. And from the GAAC and East End Improvement Association the committee received formal reports offering assistance and coop- oration for a study of its financial and license structure, but no specific suggestions as to boosting revenues. As budget discussion waned, Alderman Wetstcin inquired "how it looks as to a pay raise" whether it was another case "where the money just, isn't there"? City Counsellor Durr, in reply, said the city might have a small increase in revenue under the budget for next year but this already was obligated by mandatory expenses thrust on the city. (iAAC Offer Offer of the GAAC through its municipal affairs committee to name a special croup to assist the council in an effort to find additional funds for municipal services and payrolls* was publicized prior to last night's meeting. The response from the East End Association board showed it also was ready to cooperate in a review of the cily financing structure. It included among four suggestions, however, a proposal for investigation of the feasibility of a city management form of government for the city and the probable saving to taxpayers under such a form. Report of the GAAC committee drew caustic comment from some aldermen; that from the East End Association won more kindly response, but no formal action was taken as to disposition of either of the communications. Both were presented by W. I. Godwin, a member of the East End group named to confer with the finance committee, but also acting for the GAAC committee chairman who was unable to be present. Godwin offered the comment that in the matter of losing good em- ployes to industry where there are higher paying jobs, businessmen are encountering a problem exactly similar to that faced by city officials. "We have to keep in mind" said Godwin that with the rearmament program we are in a transitional stage nationally that leaves the wage and employment situation in a flux. Whatever the city can pay today, industry may boost. But should peace come, this situation might quickly dissolve and those moving to industrial jobs will want to return to their former ones." Corporate Ta.i Alderman Parker affirmed that when the council a few months ago voted down a corporate tax boost, aldermen svere encouraged by business to take that step. "Now," he said, "they seem to want the burden passed back onto property," and described this as "two-faced." He felt the GAAC report, "Hasn't got a thing." Alderman I.Iolloy, who sponsored the plan for the committee to seek revenue suggestions for pay increases from business organizations also voiced disappointment at the results. "We ask suggestions and get only double-talk," he commented. Carroll Peters, who was present as representative of Upper Alton Business Men's association, said re lacked background information gained by those who mot with the finance committee last week, but Ihat he "resented insinuations against the businessmen " "We pay properly taxes and business licenses," said he.

Mrs. Arthur Campbell of Thelma street, and Charles Donahue o f Williams street, Cottage Hills, are aunt and uncle of the children. Ricky, 2 years old, suffered minor injuries and was moved to the Charles E, Donahue home at Cottage Hills. Campbell reported that Mr. and Mrs. LeRoy Littlefield, Dean and Sharon, accompanied by James Tom Donahue, father of Charles of Collage Hills, were on their way to visit in Cottage Hills. The children's grandfather, 83, also injured in the collision, was reported in a critical condition at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Granite City. Bodies of the two children have been moved to the Schroeder funeral home, Chester. Halle.r Seeks Public Voice On Licenses Encouraged by the public support he's had lately in enforcement of tavern regulations, County Liquor Commission Chairman Gus Haller plans to make it possible for the same public to have more voice in his body's proceedings. His next major step will come about eight months from now— when liquor licenses in the county come due for their 1953 renewals, and the commission can approve or reject them. He plans to make public, ahead of time, the list of licenses expiring and which might come up for renewal. File Objection!) In this way, he said, he hopes that citizens having valid objections to renewal of licenses for taverns which have been causing trouble will appear before the commission 'and file their objections. Twice in the last two months Haller has experienced encouraging backing from residents of the Milton area who objected to two tavern licenses. Latest case was application for renewal of a license for a tavern near the Brown Street Baptist Church. More than 50 petitioners signed an objection to renewal, and nearly that many more appeared at the hearing. They learned at the hearing yesterday that the applicant had withdrawn his request. A few weeks ago even njoro objectors signed a petition against granting a liquor license to a drive-in restaurant in the Milton area, across the road from a church. Refusal Uphold The state liquor commission upheld the county commission's refusal of the permit, after 40 or more of Hie objectors complied with Haller's suggestion by appearing at the state hearing wilh their own attorney. today that a tavern on 1ho Haller reported threat of another old Jerseyville road appeared to have subsided. He said the person reported planning to apply for Ihe license had submitted his application for renewal of a liquor license at a location on''the Alton- Wood River road, indicating ho did not intend to move to the road northwest of Alton. "The liquor commission and Godfrey -supervisor, Bert Richoy. have decided that every effort will William Gissal, for 60 years last February 29th In the H. & K Hardware store, is a patient in Alton Memorial Hospital suffering from n broken hip due to a fall last Sunday at his home on Delmar avenue. Yesterday Iho fractured bone wns pinned together nnd it was hoped that before long Mr. Gissal would be able to bo up and around again, but he would bo obliged to use much caro to avoid further injury. Mr. Gissal was doing some work about his beautiful, wcll-carcd-foi- place Sunday afternoon. It was In closing an outside door leading to the collar Iho accident occurred. During a high wind to prevent slamming of the door, which rests on n slant, a stone was being used as a weight, nnd it was while ho wns drying to place this stone that the bottom of his trouser leg became caught, and Mr. Gissnl fell, striking his hip on Ihe stone and causing the leg fracture. Mr. Gissal was 77 years of age last December. His record of con- tinous employment by nny one firm is probably the longest of all persons employed in rotnil stores in Alton. He has been n fixture in Ihe Johnston slore. Management of Ihe firm would change with the passing of one nflor another of those employed there, but Mr. Gissal still stayed on the job, from his school days up to the present time, a period of 60 years. It has been snid that the inventory of the huge nnd widely varied slock in the Johnston store was carried in his head for many years and the quickest and surest reference lo make possible the filling of some order svas to ask Mr. Gissal. if il was something being sought that would be infrequently called for. Plea for Scenic Highway Taken To House Body BY GORDON BROWN AP Special Washington Service WASHINGTON, March 25 ,T A 10-stale delegation asked Congress today to give its okay to n proposed 2.000-mile highway along the Mississippi river. Headed by A. P. Greonsfeldor, St. Louis, the group urged Ihe House public works committee to approve legislation introduced by 35 representatives which would authorize construction of the highway. The delegation endorsed a recommendation of Iho Bureau of Public Roads and the National Park Service that such a road bo built, cooperatively by slato and federal governments by linking together existing roads along the river. Such a highway would traverse part of all 10 stales through which Ihe river flows from Lake Ilsaco in Northern Minnesota lo the Gulf of Mexico. Witnesses said today they were unable to estimate what the highway would cost. M. W. Torkelson, Madison, Wis., told the committee that if Congress authorizes the project the slates will see Ihnt Iho highway is built "even if we don't got a thin dime." Other witnesses included: O. L. Kipp, St. Paul, Minnesota highway engineer; Charles P. Casey, Illinois director of public works; Illinois Stale Senator Mil- Ion M. Mueller, of Highland; Dr. H. W. Trovillion, of Alton.

Union leaders-have previously tangled with him, at one time pulling their representatives off the government agencies in the mobilization set-up. A spokesman for Wilson's Office of Defense Mobilization (ODM) said today Wilson still 'hopes to bring steel labor and management into negotiations averting a steel shutdown despite Murray's refusal to meet vyith him. The Spokesman reported also lhat economic stabilizer Roger L. Putnarrt is reviewing Ih6 wage board's; recommended peace 1 terms of a 17Vi cents-an-hour pay boost plus other concessions. Putnam Is expected lo report within '18 hours, the spokesman said, on whether the WSB settlement proposal violates wage control policy. . 'Obviously, Mr. Wilson believes that the recommendations go beyond Ihe wage control formula,">he commented. He added that Wilson does not wish to interfere with any' negotiations which steel men and CIO ohiofs may have arranged—"He wants them to begin negotiating as soon as possible." Wilson recognizes, the spokesman said, that the negotiations would necessarily be based on the WSB recommendations "Although Mr. Wilson personally does not agree wilh them." Now Negotiations Wilson, flying back from talks wilh President Truman at Key West, Fla., had charted new steel wage-price peace negotiations in apparent hopes of avoiding boosts which Wilson plainly felt might wreck the entire economic controls program, Murray's tart refusal to meet with Wilson seemed lo doom any such nofe'otiations before they started.
