ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Member of The Associated Press. 5c Per Copy. Vol. CVXII, No. 63 ALTON, ILL., THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 1952 Established January 15, 183<k Primary Vote Expected to Break Record Term of Office Short Three School Board Members To Be Elected On April 12 Public Interest in Election Manifested By Huge Registration In less than two weeks, a record number of voters in Madison county Is expected to go Id the polls to vote In the April 8 primary of the Slate of Illinois. First, attention of the public is focussed on the presidential nominees. On the Republican ticket, throe names are listed, Bonder, Taft and Stasson. Not. on the ticket is Dwight Eisenhower, regarded nationally as one of the leading candidates for the GOP honors. No formal write-in campaign in Illinois has been planned by the state Republican organization. On the Democratic side of the ballot as it will be presented to the voters of Madison county is the name of Sen. Estes Kefauver, television crimp-buster, who has received the nod of the voters in early slates' primaries. On April 4 at We'st Junior High School, Sen. Robert A. Taft will speak and meet the voters of Alton, starling at 6 p.m. * Ileeord Rpgislrntion Expectations of a big vote have been encouraged by a record registration of voters throughout the county. Also on the two tickets are office seekers whose campaigns have stirred up special'local interest inasmuch as most are known locally. For representative ii> Congress from the twenty-fourth district, (Madison and St. Clair counties), Melvin Price of East St. Louis, incumbent, is unopposed on the Democratic ticket. On the Republican side, a strong contender for nomination is Mrs. Phyllis Stewart Sehlafly or Alton, who is opposed by John T. R. Godlewski of St. Clair county. Political forecasters predict that'Mrs. Schlafly will oppose Price in the general election next fall. Mrs. Schlafly's husband, J. F. (Ted) Schlafly, Alton attorney, is seeking nomination on the GOP ballot as alternate delegate to the national nominating convention. There are two candidates in each party for this office and two frbm each is to be elected, assuring all nominees of election. On the Democrat ballot for alternate delegates to the national convention is one Altonian, Schaefer O'Neill, attorney and former state legislator. Charles G. Thomae, chairman of the Madison county Republican central committee, is a candidate for delegate to the national convention of the. GOP, with two opponents. Only Democratic delegate to the convention listed on the ballot is James O. Monroe, Collinsville Herald editor. Eight Aspirants • Eight names are on the Republican ballot in the contest for nomination as representative in the General Assembly from the forty- seventh senatorial district (Madison and Bond counties.) First name in the list is that of Ralph T. Smith. Alton attorney, and second is Harold E. Horsley of Godfrey. Voters may mark their X's for one or two candidates. For state representative on the Democratic side, there are five candidates, including Leland J. Kennedy, Alton, incumbent, and Lloyd (Curly) Harris, incumbent. For clerk of the circuit court, the party favorites are the lone candidates — Robert C. Cunningham (now deputy circuit clerk) on the GOP side and Simon Keller- inann jr., incumbent, on the Democratic ballot. The contests for stale's attorney on each ticket, are, as usual, more active than other races, with Harold O. Gwillim, Alton attorney, opposing Joseph M. DoLaurenti on the Republican side and Anthony W. Daly, Alton attorney, opposing Fred P. Schuman, on the Democratic side. The Daly-Schuman dispute, according lo political circles, stems from apparent support by a faction of the party for Schuman in opposition to the individual campaign of the popular Daly. Only one candidate seeks nomination for coroner on the GOP bal- Problem Seen In Liquor Law 'View* Clause The "cloa. view" section of the Illinois liquor law is so widely violated that Gus Haller, chairrnnn of the county hoard of supervisors and head of the county liquor control commission, see.? li'lle chance of enforcing that part of the Irss in relation to drive-in taverns. Chairman Haller was asked by (he Telegraph what action he contemplated, after roeei.'ing from l!ir state liquor control board a communication pointing out that drive- ins, without "clear view" arc forbidden. Ilaller said the county has but two drive-in places where liquor- is served. One of these, never serves minors; the other, following reports of serving minors, has boon warned against (he practice. "I don't plan any action until know more about the situation," Mailer said, "The drive-ins are running all over the slate. And that 'clear view' provision I don't know any tavern 1'iat has a 'clear view.' The bars in hotels certainly don't have 'clear views.' In the hotels even in Springfield, patrons walked through olher rooms before they get to the bars. That isn't a clear view." "I don't; know what we can do until we find out why drive-ins arc running all over the slate," Mallei concluded, stressing again thai sales to minors won't be permitted. Three members of the present Alton school board will be elected April 12, at a regular election in the Alton school district. The three members will be elected to three- year terms, hut will serve only approximately two and a half months. Three incumbents have failed to file for re-election. Incumbents are C. J. Schlosser, president; II. Edward Meyer, secretary, and Edward Hull, member. Deadline for filing was March 'J'2. Tho present Alton hoard, including the throe members elected April 12. will serve only until June ?.0, when the new Community Unit District No. 11, and a now board of education, become effective, Having filed petitions for the April 12 election are E. P. Waterhouse, Dr. Charles Hompliill, Jerry Middlolown and Loyce Wooff. Watorhouso is purchasing agent for Alton Box Board Co., and resides in Kali-mount addition; Hemphill has dental offices In First National Bank building and lives at 71!) Euclid avenue; Middleton has law offices in First National Bank building and lives at 122(5 Alton street, and Wooff resides at 718 East Fourth street and is connected with the Alton Real Estate Exchange.

F. Schlafly jr., candidate for the Republican nomination for congrcsswoman from this districa, today said she was "pleased" to learn that her opponent had received the endorsement: of the McGlynn machine in St. Clair county. "This confirms," she said, "my claim that I am not under obligation to any small faction or pressure group. I believe I hat a candidate for higher office should be free to represent all the citizens, and if nominated, I will strive toward that end to the best of my ability. "The voters have loo much intelligence and initiative to let one one man dictate to them how they should vote." The East St. Louis Journal had carried a story yesterday that the McGIynn group had issued an endorsement of John T. R. Godlesv- ski, East St. Louis area attorney, for the Republican nomination. Speaking Wednesday night at a public affairs fo^ii-i at McKendree College, Lebanon, Mrs. Schlafly said that if voters fail to renounce Iho present administration they will have sold their "Constitutional rights for a mess.'" The Truman administration went to war in Korea 2.1 months ago and has yet. to ask Congress for a declaration of war. she declared. "If 1952 doesn't see the defeat of the men who violated their oath of office to support and defend the Constitution, then tlie American people have lost their Constitutional right to decide the great issues of war and peace," she warned. Mrs 1 . Schlafly earlier addressed the Republican woman's club ol Wood River, and id: "The day is past when taxes are paid only by the rich. Today, the average American workman is turning over '.','2 cents out of every dollar to the tax collector." GAAC Spanker, Council In Talk On F i n a n c i n g A veritable love feast ensued at the opening of the city council meeting Wednesday evening, when Executive Director Walter Wood- ;ook"-of the GAAC was granted the floor and spoke briefly and cordially in clarification of the altitude of the township and municipal affairs committee of the association in its desire to assist the council in effecting a solution of municipal financing problems. Woodcock said the committee j and the GAAC board were genuinely concerned over the city's problem of providing adequate wages and salaries so that city services could be properly maintained, and realized the danger of the city losing able and experienced employes under present economic conditions. He suggested that, with suitable time allowed, the GAAC committee might be able to assemble helpful information and assured I hat association members of special tcehni- In a desperate eleventh hour attempt to increase city licenses sufficiently to provide n pay increase for city employes, (ho city council has arranged for a special meoling (cos) $2.10) next Montfny night to provide an opportunity to enact amendments to the license rode before the fiscal year of (In- city expire* at midnight that day. Preparatory to this special council session, a meeting of Ilio city finance committee, open to all aldermen, will he hol() Friday evening lo consider license ordinance amendments, determining the increases to he imposed. The decision to hold the special mooting Monday was the result of a determined stand by three council members blocking action lo increase the city motor vehicle license (wheel tax) unless consideration also wore given to boosting other city licenses. lialk Ono lion*! Hy defeating a motion to suspend the rules, Aldermen Watsker, Brown, and Timmermiero prevented the auto license-increase ordinance from being amended or offered for immediate enactment. Brown, whose subsequent motion for a special council meeting Monay was unanimously adopted, had declared unswerving opposition to a wheel tax boost unless increases wore, made throughout the entire city license structure. Mo commented: "Mad it not been for the opposition of three members we'd have wound up tonight with provision lor $0000 additional revenue but absolutely no possibility of any pay increases for city employes. I'd like lo have this kept in mind." Suggested amount for a pay increase heard is one of $25 a month (costing perhaps $25,000). In long, healed discussion it was brought out that to increase licenses, each and every license ordinance (some estimated there were 40) must be individually changed by an amending ordinance. Time Limit Set Further thai any license change.' must be enacted before'the lisc'a year ends next Monday, March 3.1 because next year's licenses fal. due on April 1. It also was shown that no appropriation ordinance nor a salary ordinance may bo prepared until it is known what Iho license fees will be and an estimate of the increased receipls is computed; and that these ordinances, requiring extended study, must be enacted at the first council meeting in April — a scant two wook.s hence.

Instead, ho talked separately with the various price and wage control executives and ruled out any announcement today of what ho may do next lo head off a strike. Wilson has declared the recommendations of the Wage Stabilization Board, proposing a 17',i-cent hourly pay increa.se and other benefits for the CIO Stee'lworkers are inflationary and too high. This statement stired up wrath- fill retorts from CIO President Philip Murray nnrl the union declared that If the steel Industry doesn't accept the WSB recom- londalinns, the responsibility for serious strike will be on the ompnnies, Conform With Putnam Wilson talked for 20 minutes this morning with Economic Stabilizer ioger L. Putnam at Iho West- hosier apartments, whore they olh live. Then, he had a talk his own office with Nathan P. Vinsingor, WSB chairman who as upheld his board's recom- londalions as ttninflationary and istilicd. Price Stabilizer Ellis Arall was listed for a later, separ- to., talk.

Tho situation was such that It oven appeared possible that, with President Truman due back Irom his Florida vacation late afternoon, someone, • in; the~rt\pbiltzation Hierarchy may quit soon. One Ihing appeared certain: that Hie CIO Sloelworkers Union, headed by Phillip Murray, will j?et nowhere in negotiations with steel- firms until the administration makes up its mind. The companies saidMhey'll need price boosts of $l2-a-lon if they grant the WSB- recommended terms. Talks Begin Bargaining talks between Murray's union and U. S. Steel Corp. ind Jones & Laughlin Steel began yesterday in Pittsburgh, but nothing was accomplished. The administration's real task was two-fold: to answer the questions (li whether Feinsinger's WSB ovor-slo.pped itself in its sug- Rested solulion, and (2) assuming a wage boost, whether steel profits require any price boost to keep them in the black. Wilson's fears were based not on steel, but on possible effect : to Hie economy generally. John ,L. Louis is wailing to see what Murray does in steel before trying to drive a now wage bargain tor coal miners. In short, a new wage pattern is in the making, at least in Wilson's view.
