Vol. CXVII, No. 122 ALTON, ILL,, THURSDAY, JtWfi $, 1952 Opponents of L T, Proposal Are on Stand Lihkogle First Witness to Tell Reaction to Dropping Service Mayor Linkogle was the first witness today when presentation of evidence was begun oh behalf of those opposing discontinuance of Dlinois Terminal electric train service between Alton and St. Louis. Joint hearing of the applications of the Terminal, opened Wednesday In the council chamber of the city hall here, was continued today before Examiner Jerome K. Lyle for Interstate Commerce Commission and Examiner Francis C. Blair for the state commerce body. Set for hearing Friday in the city hall is the application of the Terminal for right to interstate operation of a motorbus line which the railroad proposes to substitute for - electric trains if permitted to abandon Its electric system between Wood River and Granite City. Company Testimony Testimony yesterday on behalf of the applicant railroad was principally by Illinois Terminal officials to show losses by present electric train operations, the necessity of a great expenditure to rehabilitate its electric line and equipment if service is to continue, and the estimated saving it could make by substituting busses for electric trains. In offering his testimony under questions of City Counsellor Durr, Mayor Linkogle related the action of the city council last January to register opposition to the electric train discontinuance after receiving a petition of about 500 citizens. He also offered census figures on the population of the entire Alton area for -purpose of the record. (The applications of the Terminal to the ICC, since it concerned only abandonment of trackage between Wood River and Granite City, had included no information as to population in Wood River and Alton townships served by that part of the line between Wood River and Alton. Attorney J. B. Coppinger for the village of Hartford put on three witnesses, Mayor Stump, who told of opposing action by the village trustees, Jack Phillips, a Laclede Steel Co. Reesor, a steel mill employe at Granite City, both patrons of the electric line. Next came evidence on behalf of railway union organizations opposing the Terjnina^ program. First called was: John ' Overland, Mo., an international Circumstances Surrounding Death of Farmhand Probed Library Group Seeks Member & To Aid Drive A campaign to enlist members now Is underway by the Alton Li* brary Volunteer committee, Mrs. B, E. Spencer, vice chairman of the group, announced today. Purpose of the committee and the present membership drive is to promote the Haynet Library and to improve the library's existing Inadequate facilities and service. Three types of memberships are available to any interested persons. The supporting membership needs no monetary contribution, but does indicate approval and interest in the committee and its purpose. An active membership involves a one dollar contribution and shows that the member is willing to work actively for the Improvement of the library. A sustaining membership costs $5. Membership application cards have been distributed to many groups in Alton, Mrs. Spencer said, and the campaign will continue. Members now holding cards are asked to return their signed cards and money to Paul W. Zieke, secretary of the committee, 325 East Third street, Alton, or td Mrs. Harold W. Davidson, treasurer, 2914 Edwards street. Police today were confronted vith the question of what had happened to Willie Lee Smith, 21, Negro, just before he was mangled by a switch train early Wednesday morning at the Illinois avenue crossing. Assistant State's Attorney Paul H. Reis and Alton Police Chief Galloway said today they intend to investigate an angle of possible foul play. When Smith's partially-dismem- Owners of Two Taverns Face License Losses hcrod body was removed from the tracks after the train was halted, the body felt cold, according to a police report — although the ambulance to remove the body had arrived In a matter of minutes after the accident. Rumors of foul play were raised in connection with the death of the young Godfrey farm hand and an autonsy was ordered. Results of the autopsy have not been announced, although it is known medical proof would be difficult. The condition of the body was such that definite legal evidence is lacking as to cause of death or the condition of the victim just prior to death. There appears to^be some indication, however, that Smith was alive when the train hit him. A key point in the police investigation was a report that Willie Smith was involved in a fight a short time "before the accident. Another account was that a friend of Smith's had last seen Alt on Cemetery Finances Are In Solid Shape M^MMttMAMMlMft Lot Owners Get Report On Funds; Officers Are Elected Berlin Squeeze Continues With More Violence The annual lot-owners meeting of the Alton Cemetery Association was held last evening in the Alton National Bank directors room.

It was shown through him that plants on the Terminal are well off the highway that would be a bus route. Respondents' witnesses from Namekoi and the Tricity area also were heard. Terminal officials testifying Wednesday afternoon included Vice President F. L.. Dennis, H. M. Smith, assistant vice president, R. H. Marquart, superintendent of motive power, and Joseph L. Loida, chief engineer. Their testimony was mainly in support of the company's exhibits on electric line operational losses, and impending expenses by continuance, but included the estimated cost of switching to busses.

EDWARDSVILLE-County Liquor Commissioner Gus Haller announced this morning he had served notice on two Collinsville road tavern owners to appear before him on June 12, at the courthouse, and show cause why their liquor licenses should not be revoked. The hearing will be at 10 a. m. Haller said that-on the night of May 31-June 1, five investigators of the state liquor control commission investigated the places after hearing reports of alleged prostitution. „ The licensees who have been called before Haller, and their taverns, are: James Peter Fuller, Tack Room; Frank Wix, Club J. Birth, Death Records Are Normal for May Both births' and deathes held to normal'levels in Alton^m. May. Records closed today at the, office of the local registrar, City Clerk Paul Price show 142 births and 4i dearths. Total births for the first five months this year is 706 and total of deaths is 261. These figures come with 619 births and 226 deaths end of May last year. Up to May, death registrations here were much higher than for corresponding months in 1951. This year's unexplained up curve in deaths now seems to have run its course. Another Break-in A second break-in within two weeks occurred Tuesday night at the Playmor skating rink, 3006 East Broadway, and just as in the first robbery there, a cigaret-vend- ing machine was broken open. Deputy Sheriff Paul Turner of Alton, who was assigned to investigate, learned that about $4.50 in change and perhaps 10 cartons of cigarets were stolen. him en route to call a taxi and go home. The friend allegedly gave him the money for cab fare and had said Smith had been drinking. An inquest had been slated at the Russell funeral home, where the body was taken, at 7 tonight but is was understood the inquest might be postponed until police and assistant state's attorney's investigation had gained some evidence. No witnesses to the fatality were found. None of the train crew had seen Smith oh the tracks prior to the accident, they reported. The crew said they felt a jolt as the engine passed Illinois avenue in the East End and had stopped to ..return to the crossing, suspecting there was a broken rail. Milk Festival Brings Guests To Hoist Cup .HARVARD, 10., June )S, .jp— Thousands of visitors crowded'tfite M'dHeh'r/'"coHKty~ i city^ -today for Harvard's llth annual Milk Day festival. Gov. Stevenson was to lead a elected and likewise all the officers of the board as they have been year after year for many a year. The lot owners heard reports showing fine improvement In the financial position of the cemetery cash reserve fund. It was revealed that the trust funds of the cemetery whlcji have been accumulating over a long period of years have reached their peak at better than $135,000 and Harry L. Meye«, who has charge of the financial end, reported that he had other substantial gifts promised. Perpetual care also was on the increase. The financial outlook of the cemetery has been greatly improved. One of the contributing factors toward this financial improvement Is that some time recently the ruling was given by the Bureau of Internal Revenue that the Alton Ceme- ters had been classed as an institution to which gifts could be made and they would be deductible in reporting for income tax purposes. Hitherto that had not been true and the change in that situation had made it possible to interest lotowners and crypt owners in adding to the cemettry endowment fund. Shrinkage of income on investments had made urgent need for increasing the endowment trust funds. Officers elected are John A. llyrie, president; William Bierbaum, secretary. The other trustees are Mrs. Joseph C. Aldous, William H. Feldwisch, Harry L. Meyer and Paul B. Cousley. It was reported to the directors and stockholders that there had been a* good increase in sale of crypts in the mausoleum .which the cemetery association had taken over from the original owners. An interesting fact came to light which revealed that investments of the Alton cemetery had been so securely made during the whole of the depression there was just one minor* investment which turned bad and at last had to be done away with. • During all that period the money had-'been-junder the, care of C.

Trigger-happy Russian soldiers in the divided city resorted to gunplay at least twice yesterday. A U. S. military policeman, Pvt. Wilfred R. Chenevert of North Grafton, Mass., was seared on the left leg by a bullet fired by an East German border guard as the American turned his jeep around near the frontier. In a letter to Sergei Dengin, Soviet political chief in Berlin, U. S. commandant Maj. Gen. Lemuel Mathewson demanded punishment of the German guard. Russian soldiers also fired warning shots into the air to drive a detail of West Berlin police from a disrupted cemetery on the French sector border. Administration Fights Move to Sto.p Controls By G. MILTON KELLY WASHINGTON, June 5, /P-Senate administration forces, fighting off moves to suspend the government's wage-price control program, sought today to consolidate' their victories and bring the measure to 'a vote. ' At issue was a bill to extend the Defense Production Act, which provides the authority ,for the Truman Won't Ask Legislation On Steel Strike 'No Comment' Reply on invoking of Taft.Hartley WASHINGTON. June 5 /P-President Truman said today he does not contemplate sending any legislation to Congress dealing with the steel strike. This was the only comment would make at a news conference today when he was questioned about Monday's Supreme Court decision declaring his seizure of the steel mills was Questioners asked also whether t he would invoke the Taft-Hartlpy Act in qrder to get the workers back on the job. His reply was only, no comment. He had a one- word reply— no vet —to the question of whether he would commerft on (he court decision. A reporter reminded Truman Speaking of Prices Homegrown Strawberries L, Some Items Lower High, Now that they're homegrown, strawberries are selling higher than when they were 1 shipped from Arkansas — to underline farmers and gardners' complaints about the lack of rain. One chain store, Kroger's, today was quoting them at 49 cents a quart, compared to as low as 29 cents when Arkansas patches were supplying the local store shelves. Ralph Perry, advertising manager for Tri-City stores, crawled out even further on a limb. He predicted that fresh berries on store shelves might soon become virtually a thing of the past. The trend among growers, particularly large ones, now is toward having their strawberries frozen. It's easier; the market is better; and there's less risk. He said his store had run but one ad all year promoting strawberries. Potatoes continued scarce, but at under ceiling prices in Kroger's, Manager Earl Hicks said, but the quality, he thought, had shown improvement in some shipments. Meanwhile, area store managers are stressing that despite scarcity of a few spotty items, food prices in general were ranging well below OPS ceiling prices. Some of the differences were surprising, indeed. Perry, for instance, quoted one class of margarine at 19 cents now, compared to 29 cents 9 pound one year ago. That apparently was the biggest contrast. But he also pointed to one brand of deturgent, now selling {or 27 cents, a year ago at 31; luncheon meat at 45 cent* a can compared to 49 a year ago; and crackers at 25 compared to 30 ft yew ago. Shortening was an- other big "saving" source. One size can a year ago was selling at 99 cents. It's now 75. The year ago J1.17 can now is 81 cents. A. & P. stores quoted at 99 cents one brand of process cheese, whose ceiling price was 51.08. One brand of. flour was selling at J1.59 compared to a 5.72 ceiling price, and premium sliced bacon is 61 cents compared to 66 cents. Kroger's management announced these comparisons: Green beans are now 19 cents a pound as compared with last year's 20 cent price, Fresh peas are down to 19 cents from 25 cents a pound. Canned citrus fruits and juices, soaps, shortenings and salad oils have declined shaiply in price. Shortening has dropped from $1.12 to 81 cents for three pounds. Citrus prices dropped as much as 30 percent in the past year. Canned peaches, pears, green beans, peas, spinach, sauerkraut and salmon have dropped from one to six cents a can under 1951 price*. He added that frying chickens nave gone down to 59 cents a pound from 65 cents, and sliced bacon las dropped to 45 cents a pound from 1951's 55 cents. Hams have been reduced to 59 cents from 68 cents a pound. Even beef has felt the effect of good supply and competition. Ground beef today sells for 59 cents; a year ago it was 64 cents a pound. Steak prices have dropped from one to seven cents a aound. Eggs are down 14 cents from last year, while butter has declined 3 cents a pound. Margarine prices are 8'^ cents to 9 cents a pound lower than last year's prices, he added. parade, including 15 high school ment in a distant city cancelling of bands, and later in the day was that lease by post office dept. to officiate at the crowning of the had brought about a wholly unex- Milk Day queen. pected situation which caused fore- The annual celebration is spon- closure on the building and loss of sored by the Harvard Chamber all the loans made to the builders.

Ivie, wife of the fasting Ozark preacher, has reported at least three churches have initiated revivals as the result of her husband's self denial. The Rev.

Critics of the program scored some telling blows, however, and gave no hint that they were anywhere near ready to stop swinging. In a 12%-hour session yesterday the Senate: 1. Rejected 57 to 22 an amendment by Senator Capehart (R-Ind) to suspend both price and wage controls until the cost of living index rose three points, from 188 to 191, or Congress declared war. 2. Defeated 49 to 29 an amendment by Senator Dirksen (R-H1) to take price ceilings off all food items and agricultural commodities. 3. Adopted, by a whopping voice- vote margin, a measure to knock price controls off potatoes and forbid the placing of price ceilings on, any other fresh fruit or vegetable. 4. Shouted down an amendment proposed by Senator Schoeppel (R-Kan) to provide bigger profit margins for milk processors and distributors. The main reverse for the administration forces came in adoption of an amendment to premit private business in this country to bid against the government in the international' markets for scarce and rationed metals and other raw materials. The purchased materials would be exempt from price controls. that he previously had said nobody could take away his power's inherent in the Constitution the newsman asked the President if he would elucidate. He said he would at a later date. He advised his questioner to read the Constitution. Pressed as to whet her he planned to send a message to Congress dealing with legislation in handling the steel dispute, he said no, none is in contemplation. The steel strike followed instantly on the court decision, which returned the mills to their owners. It is 'now in its fourth day, With Congress studying new strike curbs. Leaders Meet A half dozen top industry leaders and Philip Murray, head of the CIO and the striking Steelworkers Union, were summoned to White House negotiations with John R. Steelman, assistant to President Truman. Government stabilization officials said they knew of no fresh plan Steelman might have for settling the six-month-old steel dispute. The amount of a steel price increase, as well as of a wage increase is at issue. Nearly 750,000 workers were idled by the strike. These included the 650,000 steel workers, along With almost 100,000 other furloughed in coal mines, railroads, shipping and docks serving steel mills. The Senate, after voting sharp restrictions on the powers and functions of the Wage Stabilization Boards (WSB), turned to aiproposal, by Sen. Maybank (D-SC) to "end big strikes. Maybank's plan, opposed by Sen.

Monroney said his group would fight to supplant Maybank's proposal with one to permit the government to seize defense-vital plants to avert a strike and to grant cost-of-living pay raises to the workers. The government would be prohibited, however, from granting such concessions as a union shop. Monroney said he also is preparing as an alternative an amendment to the Maybank plan. This, he said, would allow the government to confiscate earnings of a seized plant which exceed what he termed "average pre-Korean war net earnings."

All of the estimated, 30 passengers aboard suffered bruises as they were tumbled about as if in a crazy house at a carnival. To cap his performance, Capt. Henry Glaser, the pilot, set his ship down smoothly on an unlighted airport. Dr. Arthur O'Keefe of Boston, a passenger, administered first aid and sent eight of his flight companions to the hospital. Four were detained but are not in critical condition.. The pilot said the planes he missed apparently were military craft but added he was not .really certain.
