PAGE POUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, MAY 31, 1952 Editorial Strawberry Shorirnkc, Paragon of Pastries May departs, and brings us the month of graduates and brides. A pleasant May it was — not too warm, but enough heat to bring on the flowers and the trees and the grass. \Vc had some chilly clavs, and some complaints were heard, but ihc> were few and generally the month was good for growing things. The closing days brought us tlic succulent homegrown strawberries, and many a Memorial Day was brightened by that paragon of pastries, strawberry shortcake. With fresh strawberries that still taste of the sunshine that gave them life, and swimming in rich cream, strawberry shortcake is food for the Gods. Merc mortals should account themselves fortunate, indeed, to be served strawberry shortcake. Corruption in government, wars and rumors of wars, elections, high prices, the grass that needs cutting — all these arc forgotten when strawberry shortcake graces the table. Troubles vanish when you contemplate how good the cake is going to be; cares disappear while you are eating the strawberry shortcake, and worries are missing afterward when he still remembers how good the strawberry shortcake was. \V'c started out to write something about Maytime, until memories of strawberry shortcake enveloped the typewriter. \Vcll, why not!' May brought us strawberry shortcake. \Vh.it else can you ask? May departs, but the .strawberry .•.hort- cake will be with us for a while more. We'd like to welcome June, as befitting the month that has inspired so many poets. Hut the welcome must wait. We're still in the strawberry shortcake league — and batting close to i.OOO. Tax-Billing Job Should Be Easier As » rule, the annual tax-billing job should be easier for the various town collectors in .Madison ccunty next year when the effect of school district consolidations has become more fully effective. Xo longer will the town collectors have to consider the rates in so many various school districts within their township borders as they prepare tax statements. For example, all of Godfrey is included in the new Alton unit District, No. 11, and where formerly there were nine districts, all with different tax rates to be considered, there will in future be just one district and a single rate to apply against property tax items. How sweeping has been the reduction of school districts, mainly under the new state law to encourage and force consolidations, is shown in a recent statement of County Supt. Wilkins. After July 1, he pointed out, there will be just 20 school districts Lota of Time to lielillne tllffleiililes The city can welcome the recent professions of interest in its highway welfare made by District Superintendent .Jesse Gary. It may be hoped, contrary to expressions from aldermen in Wednesday's council meeting, that conflict causing details of the beltlinc highway can be resolved — and resolved soon — rather than have the bcltiine dropped. Superintendent Gary has assured that plans for the highway remain to be finished, anyway. The st,;te apparently has not crawled out too far on a limb with its planning to retreat to a point where a satisfactory plan can be reached. Ihtr recent confirmation of the state's good intentions toward the community lie in announcement that the highway division has called bids for reconditioning its portion of the McAdams Highway. This would hint strongly that the state intends to continue keeping this road in condition and has serious thoughts about its future, whether or not the Mississippi Scenic Highway is routed over it. Should the beltlinc highway fall through over conflicts, however, as some aldermen seem to think it might, it is difficult to judge the degree of displeasure area iinlustri.il workers might show toward any persons or organi/ations involved. Wo'rc in the t. S., \ol Soviet BiisKiii Once again the Telegraph faces the painful necessity of having to remind that citi/ens have an inherent and legally guaranteed right to petition and appear before their governing bodies. Attacks of city aldermen against persons appearing before them Wednesday night were uncalled tor and out of order. In the Germany of Hitler and the Russia of Josef Stalin one might expect such a welcome—it the citi/en ever got beyond the door of the governing body. In this country we expect to have citi/cns appearing before such bodies treated with courtesy and given a sympathetic audience, unless! they, themselves, adopt a discourteous attitude.

Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Bosses Ignore Revolt WASHINGTON, May 31.-The publishers of Frontier Magazine, Gifford Phillips and Ludlow Flower, who arc old Denver friends of Secretary of Agriculture Brannan, dropped in on him the other day, began to talk about politics. They were for Kefauver. found him bitter against Kefauver. "When Kefauver remained in the New Hampshire primary against the President, it was an insult," remarked Brannan with heat. What Brannan and various lop politicos of both parties don't seem to realize is that a large part of the American public floesn't whether the present leaders are "insulted" or not. They are rebellious toward those in power, no matter what the party, and definitely in a nose-thumbing niood. This applies not only to those in Washington, but to party bosses in states and cities. II applied to Democratic leaders who were ousl- erl in the New Hampshire primary and to Republican bosses who were ousted last November after their 70-year rule over Philadelphia. This resentment against party bosses accounts for much of the popular sentiment for Eisenhower and Kefauver. It's a new political ferment, a healthy desire on the part of a lot of people nol hitherto in politics, to gel into politics. Not only are they determined to get out and vote, but they're determined that there shall he no smoke-filled- room nominations at cither convention. The hos.st.-s may not like this, hut it's a fact. And here arc Mime ot the battles stirred up by this new political ferment, showing its a fact: Eisenhower delegates in Texas has attracted most of the headlines, there have been just, as brazen freeze-out s in other states. In Charleston, S. C.. Hump Keating and Elizabeth Curry, two Oltl Guard Republicans, saw they were out nu mho red by Kiscnhower supporters at a meeting called at the Murray Vocational School, so they jumped inlo Healing's car, held their own meeting, and re-elected themselves to represent the precinct at the state convention. At West Baton Rouge, La., Robert Butler, precinct chairman care | found himself the only Taft man, among a crowd of Eisenhower supporters. So he called the meeting to order, nominated himself a dele- gale, seconded the nomination, closed the meeting, waved goodbye to other Republicans and walked out. At New Orleans. Taft supporters, finding themselves outnumbered, held a private meeting on the sidewalk and elected their own dele- gales. Ferment In California There may be a complete turnover of Democratic leaders as a result of the Kefauver battle in California. Some lime ago a gill-edge list of top Democrats were picked as delegates for Truman. Kefauver, who came in late, could get no celebrities to support him. As a result, he fell back on youngsters and relative nonentities whh plenty of enthusiasm but little political experience, Later, when the President took hmiscll out of lite race, he pulled I he rug out from under both his own delegates and the I )t>mocralic I patty bosses.

Ohio Revolt What California old-line Democrats watched with anxiety was the amazing primary in Ohio, where Kefauver's little-known delegates swept the stale, defeating such well-known names as .lack Kroll. head of CIO-PAC, Phil Hanna. a power in the A.F. of L.. and oven Al Horstman.

This only added fuel to the resentment of the voters, and now some of Ohio's old-line leaders find themselves oul in the cold wilh a bunch of brash Kefauver youngsters part way in the saddle. Florida Surprise Old line leaders also took a moral licking in the Florida primary, where the governor, the two senators and every member of Congress campaigned vigorously for Sen. Russell. Virtually every sheriff in the slate was mobilized by (Iov. Fuller Warren to defeat Ke- Uuiver.

The placards demanding that "Ridgway go home" and the billboard signs "Americans go home" are really nothing more than a publicity stunt. The French people smile, and lately one American company has sent its emissaries around to Ihe billboards to add to the "Americans go home" slogans a bit of commercial advice telling them what airline to take. But the Communist problem is one that most Americans do not know about, because the French officials have not made much noise or fanfare about their drastic measures to squelch it. Actually, the Communists up to 1947 had penetrated many parts of the government, the press, the radio and even the judiciary. Since then, by a quiet campaign of elimination, the government has removed Communists from most sensitive spots and, by one preiext or .mother, has rendered them less able lo do any damage. Many Frenchmen gullible and innocent of Hie use lo which the)' arc sometimes pul either by Communists or fellow travelers, play a large part in unwittingly aiding Communist activities. Thus the "neutralism" movement in France and much of its anti-Americanism is fed steadily by Communist supporters through both the press and Hie radio. In France a distinction must be made between Ihe political Com- munisis. most of whom are loyal to France, and the Soviet apparatus, which includes some misguided Frenchmen and various foreigners whose never egy at the momenl is to keep a hard core of Communists lor emergencies bin nol lo let Hie Communists generally lake any drastic sleps that would tiring on measures of repression.

Let us lake a typical case—Dorothy Shay, the "Park Avenue Hill- biilie." Her robust songs have made her a queen of the supper club circuit, at $5000 a week and higher. Last year Dorothy, who is a good business girl, asked her accountant to estimate the minimum income she would require for 1951. His figure: $81,000. Of this, business expenses and taxes came lo $65,6J5. They included such items as commission and managerial costs, $18,630; federal taxes,- 5.10,040: California income tax, $3750; legal services, $2600; traveling expenses, $12,150; professional wardrobe, $'1000—etc., etc. Subtracting $65,625 from $81.000, Dorothy found she had $15,375 for living and personal expenses. That seems a co/y sum for a single girl, but household costs — such as S.1200 for domestics, $1500 for food, $1500 for rent--ate up $5720. That left her $9655. But she had lo figure into Ibis $600 for depcnd- enis and gifts, $3560 for life insurance premiums, $1500 for medical expenses. $1200 for personal wardrobe and laundry, $1265 for miscellaneous expenses, and $1200 for non-deductible business expenses. The result, according to Dorothy, was that she had Ihe grand sum of $330 left lo save or do with as she wished. It takes a lot of money (o make money these days. /Uny 31, Only one untoward incident marred the annual observance of Memorial Day here—the speakers' platform in Alton cemetery collapsed just as former (iov. K. O. Slannrd of SI. Louis, one of the principal speakers, was in Ihe midst of his address. The platform was crowded \\ilh attending notables to number of about 30. One section proved too frail for the weight it was forced to bear and came down with a crash. Fortunately no one was hurt. After it was determined there were no casualties, the former Missouri governor resumed his remarks. The afternoon exercises in Alton cemetery followed a notable street procession which formed on Ihe city square. The naval militia division with its Hotchkiss gun was in Ihe line, led by Lieut, E. V.

In this situation, the Chelf committee is confronted with the same set-up encountered by the House committee investigating the Internal Revenue Bureau until Commissioner John Dunlap became head of that scandal-riddled agency. Prior to his appointment, the probers had been steadily balked in their efforts to obtain Revenue Bureau files, despite sonorous pronouncements of "cooperation" by Treasury Secretary Snyder, He talked promisingly but, undercover, didn't back it up. Dunlap acted cooperatively as well as talking that way. Soon after lie became commissioner, Ihe investigators were given everything they asked for. Dunlap's fort brightness made it possible for the probers to bring to light their many shocking revelations. The Justice department investigators want McGranery to do the same as Dunlap. Whether he will is the big question. icopyright. 19321 1'iirrol Whistles Alurm The sudden sound of a parrot, whistling "I Do Like to be Beside tin.- Seaside," so terrified burglars in the home of Reginald Dixpn, of London, that they fled leaving a bag of jewelry.

France is well aware that many who vote for the Communist parly aren't disloyal or interested in Soviet Russia, and, while the Communist influence in politics is in- direcllv powerful, it can be staled that the non-Communist parties, which control 71 percent ot the vote and an overwhelming majority of Ihe scats in the French national Icgishilure. are increasingly vigilant.
