frAOIFOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, JUNB |, 19JJ Editorial Argentina'! ttigwltfs Fnmhle Investigation ;Th0» of us who fll*y think bumbling inteJ- tigltiom ore common only to democracies may tike heart in the Argentine situation. When Dictator Peron's government recently ttlwscd alleged details of last February's so-called •smsinition plot, at least one of the Argentine cau Slipped out of the bag. The real fact is that there was no such thing al * February conspiracy. What happened was that the Argentine police were still checking on the September* 1951, revolution and didn't catch up with the facts until February, 19J2. .Half of Buenos Aires knew back in September that Gen. benjamin Menendcz, accused by the government as leader of the abortive conspiracy, was really just a faithful, inept front for all the true masterminds. But Pcron's Gestapo, although it swarmed all over the place and maintained an erratic reign of terror for weeks, couldn't seem to turn up any of the big wheels in the background. Finally, acting on an anonymous tip, they grabbed Col Jose F. Suarcz, former arniy chief of staff, and a dozen friends of his, both military and civilian. Some of the latter were worked over until they implicated various opposition politicos, who were also rounded up. All this took place between Feb. 2 and 11. By the latter date, more than 200 persons had been arrested. However, all but 58 were turned loose, sooner or later, for lack of evidence. The story of the detentions leaked out, despite every effort to hush it up, including total silence by the entire Peronista press. That was when the government, apparently more concerned with protecting the reputations of its police thaft with the long-range psychological effect, made its first clumsy mistake. A list of those being held was released to the press, but with no explanation for the arrests beyond a vague phrase about "investigation of irregular conduct." Now, to justify the detentions, Pcron & Co. have compounded the blunder by inventing a whole new conspiracy. This may cover up the lead-footed police, but it also gives many a restless Argentine the heady impression tlut revolt attempts are bubbling up with considerable regularity. .Real payoff on this story, though, is that neither the dictator in Buenos Aires nor any of his cohorts has; yet discovered who is the No. 1 man behind last September's uprising. People Want What Is Hard to Get To the classic question of "How silly can some people get?" we point to the current potato shortage as an example of a climax in general nit- wittery. Some people who wouldn't be seen walking down the street with a sack of potatoes have suddenly become famished for potatoes. They snatch at the rare spuds on grocers' shelves as if the skins they love to touch encircled pure gold. This writer has a Cocker pup named "Patsy" who turns up her nose at the finest of meat when it is set in her dish on the floor—but when the food sought is on the table, the dog will go for ic as Six Ways to flnurd Against Vacation ttnrglars Well known to local police is the fact that, during summer vacation time, burglars pick out vacant houses to ransack. Warnings to Altonians who plan vacations have been published in the Telegraph in the past. It is this newspaper's intention to prevent this type of crime insofar as pre cautions are effective. About as concise and qualified advice as can b obtained comes from Crime Expert; John Mosle of New York. During the next few months, Moslcr explains thieves will begin to work overtime when million of American families leave their homes for sum mer vacations. Basing his prediction on authoritative FBI sta tistics, he forecast (hat the Amcrica'n public wil be burglarized more than 1200 times every day during July and August. As vice-president of a safe company which ha been outwitting crooks for 104 years, Moslcr urge all homeowners to thief-proof their homes witl these six simple prc-vacation precautions. 1. Cancel milk and newspaper deliveries unti you return home. 2. Tell your postman about the temporar change of address. A collection of unopened mill bottles, a stuffed mail box, or a pile of newspaper on your front porch is an open invitation to bur [jlars who constantly watch for such tell-tale signals. 3. Notify your local police and tell them how ong you will be away. The policeman on you slock will keep an eye open for any signs of 'strangi activity at your home. 4. Inform a trustworthy neighbor of your va cation plans and give him your vacation address am )hone number. Ask them to call the police if they note anything suspicious. 5. Don't have any cash, gems, or valuables in the house unless protected, or visit your local bank and place your valuables in a safe deposit box. 6. Securely lock all windows and doors. Don't ust slam the door. Lock it with a key so that th >ok provides added security. Side Glances By 6«f*r«ifli hough famine had stirred all its pangs. On th able, the dog will gobble up pickles, onions, aspar- gus and all the un-doglike edibles you can think of iut in the dish on the floor, not even the best beei ;cts more than a casual approach. People are like Patsy. Sure they like potatoes with ome meals. But not so much that they couldn't at substitutes, such as rice, noodles, spaghetti or macaroni. Rather than concentrating on the sub- titute, they prefer to remember wistfully when potatoes were plentiful and the more they think bout potatoes, the more they want them. They pass up the fine foods that are easy to get s a substitute for potatoes and scramble after the the potato craving is due to pure carce item. Part of maglnation. People know the spuds arc scarce and heir appetites are whetted by the prospect of jetting something that others cannot have. Best solution to the potato shortage would be for icople to go back to eating normally. Pearson's Merry-Go-Round On Political Hot Spot WASHINGTON, June 2. — General Eisenhower had planned to make only one or two speeches when he got home. Inside reason for his change of plans in order to speak June 14 in Detroit is a political battle between Jwo giant auto companies. Caught right in the middle, like a pedestrian in the center of the road not knowing which way to jump, is Republican National CommiUeeman Arthur Summerfield. On one side the hapless Summerfield faced Chrysler, which wants Taft for President. On the other side he faced the Ford Motor Co., which likes Ike. Summerfield himself is a General Motors man, being one of the biggest Chevrolet dealers in the world. But as chief Republican leader for Michigan, he gets lots of help from both Ford and Chrysler; so, belatedly and after starting out as a Taft man, he's now trying to walk the white line between the two. Summerfierd first found himself pressured by Chrysler's finance chairman, B. E. Hutchinson, who suggested that Summerfield ought to do something for Taft. So with an eye on the fat Chrysler purse, Summerfield arranged for Gen. MacArthur to invade Michigan, where he made his famous speech that no general ought to be President. This was a direct slap at Eisenhower and so intended. As such, it was resented by Henry Ford II, who promptly sent word to Summerfield that he might as well not come around for campaign contributions from Ford unless he made amends for the MacArthur visit. Additional pressure to have Ike visit Michigan came from ex-Studebaker boss Paul Hoffman and Arthur Vandenberg, jr., both Eisenhower campaigners. Result was Summcrfield's hasty invitation to Ike to make a major address in Detroit. Steel Worries Government officials, who visited the United Steelworkers convention in Philadelphia last month, are literally sitting on pins and needles until the U.S. Supreme Court hands down its decision on the President's right to seize the steel industry. What they know is that if the Supreme Court decides against the government, there yvill be an immediate, all-out showdown between the union and the steel industry. This, wjll close down steel production for the entire nation tighter than • drum. Jleason they know this is the tight-lipped, sentiment of steel workers. Many of them are ready to go further than Phil Murray, in fact have chafed at Murray's patience. Bitterness is so deep-rooted, government observers have reported to the White House, that if the President invokes the TaU-Hartley tor an off period, the union would not observe it. They argue that they have already postponed the strike more than 80 days. Union men seem especially to be itching for a fight with the giant U.S. Steel Corp. They say a showdown has been brewing for some time, that they might as well battle it through to the end. U.S. Steel Viewpoint On the other end of the steel- crisis picture, observers have noted a similar toughness on the part of U.S. Steel, biggest producer in the world, and bellwether of the industry. This is a change from U.S. Steel policy a few years ago, when Myron Taylor, chairman of the board, and Edward Stettinius, its president, amazed the rest of the steel industry by signing a union contract with labor. This cooperative policy toward labor was attributed in part to President Roosevelt's friendship with Taylor, who later became ambassador to the Vatican; and Stettinius, whose father had served with Roosevelt in the Wilson administration. Later young Stettinius became FDR's secretary of state. At that time also the J. P. Morgan Co., which dominates U.S. Steel, was in turn dominated by the late Thomas W. Lament and had been influenced by Dwight Morrow, both politically liberal bankers. Since then, however, Enders Voorhees, a tight-fisted New York Dutchman, has become the J. P. Morgan man who chiefly guides the destinies of U.S. Steel as chairman of its finance committee. Furthermore, the Morgan firm, since the death of Dwight Morrow and the elder Lamont, has swung away from its onetime business liberalism. So the die may be cast for one of the toughest showdowns in recent labor history between one ol the most powerful unions and one of the biggest corporations in the world—if and when the Supreme Court rules. Overestimated Ei/emy It isn't supposed to be mentioned outside the military "family," but Gen. Mark Clark has been caught by the joint chiefs of staff padding his Korean battle reports. In his first military summaries, the new Far East commander quietly upped the number of enemy troops in Korea by 60,000. It was obvious from the reports, however, that 60,000: new troops had not entered Korea, and that Clark had simply counted labor battalions and civilian units as enemy troops. The joint chiefs figured that Clark was trying to make the odds against him look bigger so he would have an argument for more reinforcements and a better alibi in*case of a military Reversal. Discretely they called attention to the discrepancy between Gen. Ridgvvay's last report and Gen. Clark's new figures, and cabled Clark for "clarification." Gen. MacArthur did the same thing on a larger scale in December, 1950, after his disastrous defeat in North Korea. He upped the estimate of enemy troops to half a million men, and the next day increased it to a million.

Why, that's nothing, officer! Do you think I'm just learning to drive?" David Lawrence Politics Still Politics Even In England By DAVID LAWKEXCE LONDON, June 2 — Politics is politics the World over, but that fact is particularly conspicuous when one visits the House of Commons and listens to the debate. They call them Conservatices and Socialists here, but they might just as well label them Republicans and Democrats, or rather administration and anti-adminis- :ration, and the parallel would be complete. Tactics and maneuvers are naturally somewhat different, because here they have a parliamentary system, which means that the executive and legislative branches of .he government are merged in one. When the prime minister and his deputies speak in the House of Commons, they are talking on be- lalf of the entire government in wwer and not of just one branch. This makes the strategy which he opposition party uses even more sharp and penetrating. It affects the whole nature of the debate. Thus, for example, the other day Prime Minister Churchill and Toreign Secretary Eden were explaining a very important step n the negotiations for the rebuild- ng of German armament. The wo parties faced each other across the benches, and it was ap- >arent that the entire argument, wth on the part of the government and those in opposition, had been prepared more with the idea of putting the other side in a hole nan in presenting the case to the entire country on an objective >asis. While the conservatives in a ;eneral way correspond to our Republicans, several years of Socialist government rule has compelled the Conservatives to develop what in America would be called "me -tooism." Party discipline is rather severe lere. On roll calls, it is absolutely ssential that every single mem- >er of both sides shall be on hand o vote. And, while differences inside the party are ironed out in caucuses, they often produce tur- mlent meetings. At the moment, former Prime Minister Attlee is having his trou- )les inside the Labor party with Aneurin Bevan and his followers. 'Jtie Bevan faction is an extrem- st group whose Socialist, ideas, if ;arried out, would produce economic chaos in Great Britian and conditions that would make So- •iet Russia very happy. In Amerca any such faction as the Bex-antes would loosely be called Communistic, but there isn't the lightest reason to link the Bevan movement with any foreign gov- rnment. It is distinctively British, iut this doesn't necessarily mean hat it has at heart the best in- erests of England.'As one Con- ervative member described it the ther day, "they are Communists lot by affiliation but by instinct." An example of the bitterness vhich soti etime crops out in the deological "debates of the House f Commons occurred the other ;ay during discussion of proposals 3 rearm Germany. Julian Amery, Conservative member, was an- wering the Bevanite faction of 10 Labor party as follows: "Either the right honorable gen- einan and his friends are follow •avelers but will not admit it; r they are so irresponsible that ley regard the struggle for the oul of Europe as a pawn in the struggle for the soul of the Labor party." The problems that England faces are complex indeed. Industrial dispute* are not as acute as in the United States because the rise in wages mean* a rise in the cost of production and this can lead to curtailment of the export market on which Britain depends for survival. This provides a restraining influence. Britons here smile at America's doubles between labor and management and say, "It couldn't happen here." Even the "left i wingers" concede that to set up Korean War Begins Third Year in June By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK .V—There is wry date on the world's calendar I hi: month—the beginning of the third year of the Korean war. Barring a resumption of large- scale fighting or a sudden and successful conclusion of the truce talks, the end of the second year of the conflict will find both sides roughly where they were when it started, June 25, 1950—astride the 38th parrallel. They have been virtually stale* mated for nearly a year, during months of almost ceaseless talks about a cease-fire agreement. Both sides now are incomparably stronger than they were at the outset of the war. But the dismaying fact is that in the last year, despite day-and-night hammering by Allied planes, the enemy has doubled his troops along the front from 500,000 men to 1.000,000. He has 600 tanks and armored guns ready, more than twice the number he had in 1950. His artillery is also greater. His airpower has doubled or trebled. The Allies virtually destroyed the first enemy—the North Korean army. Their main foe now is the Chinese Reds, armed with many of the latest and best weapons made by Soviet Russia, which remains serenely out of the battle. Both Congress and the nation, weary of Russia's war of nerves, backed President Truman's decision to go into Korea, It looked at the start as only a job for the regular army—an Oriental grassfire that could quickly be stamped out. But today most of the Americans in uniform Jn Korea are civilians, called to duty. Month by month the war has touched more and more American families. Great Unrest There is a great unrest about this strange twilight, faroff struggle that goes on and on and has cost this nation alone some 109,000 casualties. Americans aren't used to seeing themselves in the plight of a man who has got his hand stuck in flypaper and can't paw it off. "What kind of a war is this?" they say, impatiently. "Let's get it over with." But as of now only three things can be said for sure about the Korean business: 1. It did stop in its tracks the attempt of Communism to expand by blunt force. 2. It woke up America to the bitter truth it wasn't ready to defend itself, and had become the fat boy of the post-war world. 3. It shows no signs of ending soon. Some critics of United Nations policy believe the Allies should mass more men and weapons and smash through the Chinese Reds to the Yalu river> Might Broaden Scope That probably could be done, at the price of .heavy casualties. Bui the dilemma of the top command is this: would that end the Korean war, or only precipitate the Third World War? The Yalu river also is near Siberia. Russia has gone to extreme lengths to keep satellite states, between her and any possible enemy. Would she stand idly by while a great foreign land army came to the red raw nerve of her Siberian frontier? Or would she throw her own Siberian army into action, and perhaps simultaneously inarch into Europe? June 2, 192? Thomas Milter, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. A. Miller of State street, was to be graduated June 6, from the medical school of St. Louis University. Alderman Calrnes. chairman of the Riverfront park development committee, was to make a third attempt to secure a quorum on the question of disposition of the Sparks boathouse, which stood on leased ground at the west end of Riverfront Park. E. M. Sparks, lessee, had asked $25,000 as his equity as payment for making fill on the property. Surrendering of the lease at this dale would be eight years prior to its expiration date. Examination of applicants for assistant chief and foremen of the fire department, was held by the civil service commission, and those certified and appointed by Mayor Butler were Louis Miller, assistant chief, James Donnelly, Jack Tisius, Bernard Jun and Thomas Krepel, foremen. A total increase in property Values of $292,590 as carried on the Alton township assessment books for the year of 1927 was reported by Assessor Henry Cramer.

Should the bill be adopted Western Cartridge Co. would be forced to suspend work in its factory at East Alton. The Wood River swimming pool was undergoing its annual inspection and repair, and Standard Oil Co. had sent in eight expert caulkers to close up any seams that had opened during the past year. This was to be at no cost to the city of Wood River.

Joesting, died unexpectedly at the home of her son, William Paul of Fosterburg. Her other surviving children were George and Charles Paul. Robert S. Allen Reports Secret Blocking WASHINGTON. June 2. — President Truman was talking to the wrong audience when he denounced the private power companies at the electric consumers conference. He should have made that scathing speech to his own Senate leaders. At the very time the President was publicly castigating the utilities, two top Democratic leaders in the Senate were secretly blocking action on his choice for chairman of the Federal Power Commission, the agency that regulates the electric and gas industries. This appointee is Thomas C. Buchanan, who has been a member of the commission since July 1948 and chairman since January of this year. A recognized authority in his field, Buchanan served for many years on the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. He is noted for his defense of consumer interests. His present term expires June 22, and the President has reappointed him for another four years. But behind-the-scenes, confirmation is being scuttled by two leaders of the President's own party. They are Senate Democratic Floor Leader Ernest McFarland, AriE., and Sen. Edwin Johnson (D- Colo), chairman of the interstate commerce committee which has jurisdiction over legislateive matters affecting the Power Commission. These two Democratic chiefs are directly responsible for holding up Senate approval of Buchanan's reappointment. After considerable delay, Johnson finally scheduled a hearing on the matter for last Thursday. But on Monday, it was mysteriously called off; "postponed" was the official explanation, although no new date has been set. The man responsible for this curious procedure was Senate Democratic Leader McFarland, who besides being a good friend of Johnson is also a senior member of the interstate commerce committee. McFarland asked Johnson to withhold action on Buchanan, and that's what happened. Under The Gun This isn't the first time in the Truman administration that a powerful Democratic senator has barred the reappointment of a public-minded member of the Federal Power Commission. Several years ago Commissioner Leland Olds was defeated for a third term by Sen. Robert Kerr, Oklahoma oil millionaire who is now running for the Democratic presidential nomination, because of opposing his bill to strip the Power Commission of control over natural gas rates. Kerr succeeded in steamrolling the measure through Congress, but it was vetoed by the President. Among the Democrats who voted for Kerr's bill were McFarland and Johnson—who are now secretly stalling Senate action on Buchanan's reappointment, apparently for the same basic reason that was behind Kerr's bitter fight against Olds. Pending before the Power Commission are 35 rate-increase cases totaling around $175,000,000 and affecting more than 25,000,000 natural gas consumers. Most of these cases are still in various stages of consideration; usually it takes upwards of six- months to process a rale-increase application. But one of these cases is on the verge of a final ruling— and that is the crux of what is happening to Buchanan. His reappointment is being deliberately held up in the Senate to see how he votes in this key rate-in- Alton Evening Telegraph Published by Alton Telegraph Printing Company. P. B. COUSLEY.

Police experts testified that his teeth fit bite marks left by the burglar in an end of salami in the shop. crease case. In other words, he is being given the "sweating out" treatment. The crucial case centers around the Northern Natural Gas Company, Omaha, Neb., which is seeking a $9,300,000 boost in rates. An FPC examiner, after extended hearings, has recommended this hike to be cut to $5,200,000. The company and the industry as a whole are vehemently opposed to such a slash. It could be a precedent on the other cases, some of them even larger. So the industry and various senators, prominent among them McFarland and Johnson, are pointedly making it clear to Buchanan that they have their eyes glued on what he does in this test case. According to one inside report, Buchanan has the deciding vote on the issue among the five Commissioners. (Copyright 1952) MIRROR OF YOUR MIND governmental tribunals is not the in America way to seule disputes and that' collective bargaining between the parties is really the only way. It is recognized, nevertheless, that there are some acute situations affecting the national interest and that the government may step in in those cases with compulsory arbitration. But any such tribunals are fair-minded and objective and are just as sacrosanct as judges on the bench. They never have jeen known to make deals with .abor or management, especially while cases are before them.
