PAOE *QUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, MAY 29, 1952 Editorial Memorial Onv. to Honor War Dead Tomorrow, we will honor our soldier dMd. Once set apart as * time to decorate the graves ot thOJfc *ho fell in the Civil war, May 30 has come to be the day on which the memory of all soldiers If honored. The idea of decorating the graves of Civil war soldiers had its inception during the war between the states. Before the close of the war, May 30 was thus celebrated in several of the Southern states In the North, however, such a celebration was without a fixed date until 1868, when John A. Logan, commandcr-in-chicf of the (.rand Army of the Republic, issued his now famous general order designating May 50, 1868, "for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion." Gen. Logan issued his order for decorating soldiers' graves "with the hope that it will be kept up from year to year." The order has been read at countless Memorial Day observances ever since. In 1882, the Grand Army urged tliat the "proper designation of May 50 is 'Memorial Day' not Decoration Day." May 30 was declared a legal holiday in Rhode Island in 1874, in Vermont in 1876, and New Hampshire in 1877. By 1910, Memorial Day was a legal holiday in all the states and territories, save Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina. In Florida, it is a day to honor the dead of all wars; in Virginia, Confederate Memorial Day; in the Carolina* and Texas a holiday for banks only. Other southern states mark their own memorial days to honor the memory of Confederate soldiers who died in the war. Many of us can recall when the holiday was called "Decoration Day", a designation that seems in more recent years to have died out. \V'c can recall, too, when graying veterans of the Civil war took part in the celebration. Now, veterans' organizations made up of men and women of more recent wars have taken over the celebration, and so, tomorrow, we will honor fittingly the soldier dead of all wars. If the importance of election doesn't register with you maybe it's because you didn't. If Grand Juries Halt Gambling, Lei's l.vleml Them Circuit Judge Spivey sure said a mouthful. Commenting to the May term grand jury at Edwardsville on operation of gambling dens, and suddenly closing them down when grand juries go into session, he said: "It was an insult to the court and to the grand jury to think they can operate until the day be- It's ttard lo Know That a Friend Is tione Habit ii strong in m. The morning after an old friend, Sharkcy, advertising manager of the Telegraph, died, a reporter strolled downstairs ami paused at the door of the department where Sharkcy had presided. Hardly thinking, the reporter's Mcps turned toward the desk at the end of the room where so often — and for so many years — he had gone to a chair in front of Sharkcy's desk, plunked down comfortably and asked, "What's new, Lee?" There always some genial or witty conversation, for Lcc Sharkcy was a man of wit, who was a good friend, a man of common sense viewpoints, and who possessed a philosophy b.iscd on intense interest in life and human relations. So it was not so sirangc that the reporter's footsteps automatically took him to that office on that morning. Then lie gl.tnccd at the desk, absently expecting to see his friend there, ready as usual to trade genial banter . , , but there was no ohc at the desk. Suddenly the reporter realized his friend would never be there again. Sadly he turned away and thought how strong is habit and friendship — and how much one can miss a good friend. An English lien laid 10 eggs in one hour. That's pretty good. But tune in on the next political candidate that makes a speech and .sec how many he lays in 45 minutes. Side Glances By Gftfbraltft New York police used planks ,md shovels to rescue two boys mired in mud. Usually the rescue is done at the wash basins. fore the grand jury convenes, and then close down." fn one way it is an insult to the court and the grand jury. However, it's an even worse one to the people of Madison county when these dives run virtually wide open. Viewed from another angle, the sudden closings when the grand jury goes into session could be a TRIBUTE to the grand jury. At least that body is something the operators seem to fear. With that in view, it might be suggested that if he's interested in avenging an insult, Judge Spivey look into the possibility of keeping the grand jury in a state of suspended session from one court term to the next, The knife could cut two ways. If the gambling gentry continued closed during this prolonged session, our voters would be the gainers even if the jurors didn't find any evidence upon which i to base a prosecution. On the other hand, if the ' gamblers did reopen, the grand jurors would soon find the evidence. Judging by the complaints received by the Telegraph, Alton's members of the grand jury would find plenty to report, both within the city and around its outskirts. r. M. . U. «. P»\.

David Lawrence Taft's Staml Not Clear to Most Britons Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Dubious About H-Bomb WASHINGTON, May 29. —When the White House decided about 18 months ago to proceed with production of the hydrogen bomb, it was considered a highly speculative project. Scientists thought they knew how lo make it but weren't sure. They couldn't guarantee success. Today, however, it can be revealed that progress is al the point where success is assured. The scientists now know that the H-bomb can be exploded. But they are not entirely sure of one other phase of the operation —namely, what will happen after the explosion? What worries them is Ihe bare possibility that the bomb might misfire. If so, scientists say it would send a ring cf fire around the world causing the earth's atmosphere to glow brighter than the sun, and the earth's surface to melt into glass. The scientists are confident Ihis won't happen, but they also say they neycr can be exactly sure of the H-bomb's effect. However, what equally worries them is the reported rapid progress of the Russians on various types of atomic weapons. That's the reason why President Truman is preparing an extra budget of about five billions for the Atomic Energy Commission. NOTE — The first H-bomb will be exploded a I Eniwctok this summer.

Justice Tom Clark, at a dinner party when Ihe court was considering a racial question in Texas universities. "Tom," asked Ihe senator, "what's the cow* going to do about letting niggers into our colleges?" Justice Clark seemed embarrassed and evasive. "Arc you fellows going to open up our universities to Hie niggers'. 1 " pursued Ihe senior senator from Texas, "You know who it was who put you in the Justice department. It was mo. And I don't want you to go round puttin' on airs and for- gettin' folks." NOTE — The Supreme Court later ruled against Connally's views on the race issue.

May 29—What rlo Britons Ihink about Ihe American election campaign? They have disciplined themselves theoretically to take no sides and to avoid any public expression on the part of the government or 1ho press which could 'in any way he construed as intervening in American internal affairs. But this surface restraint does not by any means hide the basic attitude which most Britons feel toward the American presidential campaign. Primarily, the British don't know Ihe first thing about the reasons why Tart has such a formidable support in the United Slates. They rlo know Gen. Eisenhower's personality, and like him. They presume he's going to be a friend of theirs if he's elected president, nnd that Sen. Taft is going to be hostile. These generalizations arc Ihe result of a lack of knowledge of American politics. Instead of studying the reasons why the Taft campaign has mobilized such a strong following, particularly on foreign-policy questions, the' Europeans know very little about Gen. Eisenhower's point of view, cither, on foreign-policy questions, because ho has never expressed publicly any comments other than those required to do his job over here. There is, to be sure, a great admiration for Eisenhower, the general, born of wartime experience with his leadership and a belief I hat he will at least treat. Europe fairly even though public sentiment in the United States may favor less and less economic aid to Europe as the years go on. The "London Evening News," on the .occasion of Gen. Eisenhower's recent visit lo Britain, said of him: "Just seven years ago our streets -after so many grim years of battering and black-out were lit once again and filled with vast, rejoicing crowds celebrating V-E day. "V-E day was the victory of all of us, great and humble, as Mr. Churchill said in his unforgettable speech to the throng at Whitehall; but in a special sense, ol course, it was Ike's victory.

This -Memorial Day fewer than a baker's dozen survive of the massed millions who fought in tho American war of brother-against- brolher that ended 87 years ago. The earth is a tomb of many vanished armies, but few will live longer in memory than those that contended under the banners of the Federal Union and the Confederacy from 1861 to 1865. Those memories in many minds even now are like sensitive scar tissue. Historians now class the war between the states—known in northern American communities as the Civil War—as the first modern war, and certainly it made many changes in the art of battle both afoot and at sea. Truly Big War It truly was a big war, considering the population at Ihe time. The north threw 2,128,948 men into action and suffered 349,944 casualties. The number of troops on the South's side is debatable. Northern historians put the figure as high as 1,400,000 out of a white populace of only 5,000,000. Estimates by southern historians go as low as 600,000. Woodrosv Wilson said the south put 900,000 men in the field and placed their losses in killed and wounded at 133.821. As in most wars before the development of sanitation techniques, disease took more lives than bullets. The North, for example, lost only about 110.000 men from combat wounds. It lost nearly 200,000 through diseases. The North ended Ihe war by the grinding weight of superior manpower and industrial might. But the South managed to emerge with mosl of the heroes.

Answers to Questions —0jf II 1SKI\— A render can get the answer to an\ question of fact by writing The Telegraph Information Bureau, 1200 Eye Street, N. \V., Washington 5, D.C. Please enclose three (3) cents for return postage. Q. Is there a penalty fur using an assumed name on a marriage license? C. C. A. The fact that a name was stated wrongly, either accidentally or on purpose, would not in any way invalidate the marriage. However, if this is done purposely it might render the person who gives the wrong name liable to a charge of perjury, as all statements in obtaining a marriage license are required to be under oath. Q. What is considered to be the best position for restful sleep? N. H. D. A. No sot position is recognized as being the best for sleep. All that is necessary is that the sleeper make himself as comfortable as possible. Q. How much money did it cost to set up the atomic project on the Savannah River? B. H. A. When Congress authorized the Atomic Energy Commission to construct the Savannah River Project in South Carolina and a new uranium production plant near Paducah, Ky., it appropriated $1 billion for the purpose.

Similar editorial expressions indicate that (.ion. Eisenhower is held in high esteem but, if one may be permitted a pYedietion in tho event that he is elected president, the same British press may be disillusioned. Gen. Eisenhower faced by a growing American sentiment in favor of an independent policy in foreign affairs, must necessarily lake note of that sentiment if an era of self-reliance is to be established among the nations allied with us. The view that is held here about Sen. Taft and Gen. Mat-Arthur is based on a steady campaign ot distortion. One would Ihink from hearing comments here that the Americans are a bellicose people intent on large-scale war at the slightest provocation. One is inclined to think that Sen.

Q. Please explain the use of gauge and denier in reference to hosiery. R. K. A. Gauge indicates the fineness or closeness of knit; denier the fineness of nylon yarn. Today 51 gauge is considered low or coarse, 54 gauge is medium, 60 is fine, and 66 very fine. In denier 15 or 20 is the fine yarn used in sheer hose and 30 the heavier for service weight hose. Very fine yavn calls for a fine or close knit lo endure the tension of wear. Thus, 15 or 20 denier hose can be expected to last longer in the close 60 or 66 gauge rather than in 51 gauge. The heavier 30 denier, however, can give good wear in 51 gauge or lover. Brands differ in wearing quality. Q. Which did Milton regard as the greater work, his "Paradise Lost" or "Paradise Regained"?

May 29. -Democratic leaders of the House have only themselves to blame for that $1,737.000.000 slash in the Adminis- ration's foreign aid program. It was their bungling that was chiefly responsible for this bitter upset at Republican hands. The Republicans won because more than 100 Democratic congressmen were not around when this crucial showdown occurred, and the responsibility for that astounding wholesale absence rests squarely on the Democratic lead- rs. Had they been on the job it svouldn'.t have happened and Ihe outcome of the momentous battle might have been very different. The chances are strong that the cut would have been limited to the Sl.OOO.OOO.OOU recommended by the House foreign affairs committee. This glaring dawdling and ineptness of the Democratic leaders is not new. It has happened repeatedly in this Congress. Their incompetence, indifference or covert hostility has been a major factor in virtually every Administration defeat. The foreign aid licking is a graphic example of that.

As a result, next fall, the 3000 delegates to the Legion convention will "elect" Gough as their national commander. Regardless of the outcome of the Eisenhower candidacy, Paul Hoffman will not go back to the Ford Foundation. The one-time Studebaker Corp. official took a leave from the Foundation to campaign for Gen. Eisenhower, but close friends say Hoffman has other plans when that drive is over.
