ALTON EVENING TEL Mftnbft of Thi Allocated Pfffti. Sc Pa Copy. Vol. CXVfl, Mo, 123 ALTON, ILL., FRIDAY, JUNE 6, 19S2 •M Opposition to Motorbus Plan Of I. T. Heard Three Bus Lines Object; Present Services Are Listed With three bus lines registering opposition to the railroad's petition, the application of Illinois Terminal for a permit to operate motorbus passenger service between Alton and St. Louis in interstate commerce was called for hearing in the city hall here today before a joint board composed of examiners for both the federal and state commerce bodies. Examiner Jerome K. Lyle, who conducted an ICC hearing here Wednesday and Thursday in the related application of the Terminal to abandon electric line trackage on its Alton-St. Louis route, remained to sit today with Examiner Harold E. Poslusny, who represents the Illinois commerce commission. The Illinois examiner was presiding at the hearing In the forenoon. Entering the case in opposition to a bus permit being granted the Terminal were Jacksonville Bus Line, Wood River-Alton Bus Co., and Brown Motor Lines, all represented by attorneys and officers. Granite City also was taking active part in the hearing, being represented by Mayor L. R. Davis and City Counsellor* John Dufner. Mayor Linkogle was at times in the audience as was 1 also Alderman Waide, but Alton was taking no part in the bus rights matter, although it had actively opposed the Terminal application to abandon the Alton-St. Louis electric train service. Mayor Davis said Granite City ;was interested because the Terminal project had a bearing on local transportation service in Granite City. The joint hearing before examiners for ICC and the state commerce body on the Tei'iriinal petitions to abandon electric trains was concluded at 2:30 p.m. Thursday. Examiner Lyle announced that a "proposed report" will be filed as a recommendation to the. ICC by its examiner. When the hearing opened today 'on the Terminal application for right to operate buses in interr state service it was explained that the application is based on the one pending for. electric line abandonment. The Terminal will want the bus permit only if it is permitted to abandon electric trains.- The attorney for the Terminal explained that it also has pending an application to the State commerce commission to give intra- slate service in Illinois on the route from Alton to St. Louis. Because the railroad application to end electric service is regarded as "urgent," the Terminal, its attorney added, has filed for bus rights without waiting the outcome of its other application, thus seeking to shorten any time factor involved. However, if the commission should permit electric train abandonment and also finds that present service by other bus Jines is already adequate, then the Terminal wouldn't care to press further for bus rights. Attorney Olson of the Jacksonville bus line objected that .the Terminal application was improper as "not within the intent of the commerce act." It also objected, he »aid, that the earlier application of bus service by the railroad in an area where a bus line already is certificated in interstate commerce. He declared it "inequitable Continued on Page 9, Col. 1. Runaway Boat Owner Thrown from Craft, Dragged Around in Circles Gambling 9 Report Given By Grand Jury EDWARDSVILLE, June 6.-No gambling is now going on. at an establishment on the Colllnsvllle road, the Circuit Court grand jury reported today. The grand jury had investigated reports of gambling at. the request of Judge Spivey, after St. Louis newspapers said that dice games were running at a place known as Club 7800. The jury reported to Judge Spivey: "Our investigation discloses that there is, at the present time, no gambling established there (Club 7800), and that such gaming activity as may have been in operation prior to the sessions of this grand jury was on a 'sneak basis.' "We find that there is insufficient evidence upon which to return indictments at. .this time, and suggest and recommend that should further .evidence of the operating of this establishment or of any other gambling establishment be obtained by police officials of this county', that they bring such evidence to the state's attorney, so that he may in turn file criminal informations in the County Court of Madison county . . . against any guilty offenders, or present the same to this grand jury at a future date." Judge Spivey thanked the grand jury for the gambling investigation which he had requested. Russell-Miller Leases Parking Lot for Workers A question concerning the use of merchants' parking lot at Fourth and William streets by em- ployes of the Russell-Miller Milling Co. has been settled, apparently, by the establishment of a mill employes' parking lot orv West Broadway just west of the point where the paving ends. The mill has had an area on the north side' of the McAdams road smoothed off and gravelled. The property is leaded by the mill from the Sparks interests. There the mill management b a s encouraged its 250 to 275 employes to park their cars, rather than on the Merchants lot which was constructed by commercial donations for the accommodation of downtown customers. 3-Year-Old Floods Bank With Tear Gas BARTONVILLE, June 6, &— Three year old Susan Lynn Keith, of nearby Peoria, noted an interesting looking switch at the Bartonville bank yesterday. She pushed it. Within a minute, some 35 em- ployes and customers had fled the building. The switch operated the bank's tear gas system. Five hours later, after windows and doors had been opened and fans turned on, employes wore able to return to work, Susan had visited the bank with her grandmother, Mrs, Gertrude Gadden. i Everything Neiv Even Weather Favors Initial Concert of 1952 Muiiy Band By P. S. COU8LEY With a new director, a new manager, and some new features of program policy the Municipal Band opened a new season at the same old stand—Riverview park—Thursday night. And the weather deal was new, loo. It didn't rain. While that fact and the warm day might have been expected to bring out an SRO audience, it must he remembered that a world heavyweight championship fight was being telecast last night. So the crowd—nevertheless the host first night audience in several years—wandered in late and some left early. Those who gave more than casual attention to the music, however, were able to discern that the public was in for a real treat this s-ummer with director Jean Me- Cormick on the podium, McCormick, 'for many years a died-in-the-vool professional musician who played with many big name bands ranging from jazz organizations to Andre Kostelanet/, gave «arly evidence of knowing what a band should sound like. And lest night's performance hinted strongly that Director McCormick was leaving no stones unturned in rehearsals to make the Muny Band sound just the way he think* it should. Her* Is no mere reader of notes and scanner of pages. He has de- finitf ideas of the relationships and bal||»c« for each passage between the b*n4'i various instrumental choirs, and of the tone-color to be obtained under each circumstance. Mrs. Alberta Kennedy, soprano soloist last night, proved to be a pleasing addition to the evening's program. She did :'^vee numbers, all by Sigmund Romberg. Don Schlueter, trumpet soloist, took the limelight in two numbers. He did an anounced solo in Anderson's "Trumpeter's Lullaby," and an unlisted one in Morton Gould's "Pavanne." The Hymn of the Evening, a new feature, turned out to be- three. Director McCormick's interlacing and balancing of his various sections was particularly noticeable in the melody from "Song of Norway v " and in Porter's "Begin the Beguine,"—at almost opposite end-! of the program. In the "Song of Norway," too, his band showed sharp coaching in getting over the dangerous spots where one solo instrument turns over the lead to another. The "Song" is full of such places, but the proceedings went smoothly. George Loveless, new manager of the band, was introduced during the evening, but Lester "Duke" Parker, retir^l manager, continued as announcer for the program. After the concert. Loveless said he intended to speak to city authorities about obtaining police supervision on the grounds to get juvenile interference under controJ quickly before it got too far out of hand. George Cox, newspaper truck driver, who was alone In his boat in Piasa creek, Wednesday night, started his 25-horsepower out board motor while standing up and was thrown overboard. He had started the motor in gear Instead of neutral. Cox related the story: "1 pulled the starter rope and, the next thing 1 knew, I was overboard. The starter cord was wrapped around my arm and I was being towed at about ten miles an hour in circles. "As I went overboard, my head struck the motor and I received some bruises and scratches. My glasses and my cap remained in place. "It seemed like I swallowed buckets of water and T had to spit out both of my dentures so that I could breath better. The suction of the. water emptied all of my pockets. I lost my wallet, and personal belongings.' Cox was pulled around a circle by the boat for about ten or 15 minutes. Finally he was able to untangle the rope from his arm, get rid of the cord, and swim to shore. Swimming wasn't too easy, either, after his harrowing experience, said Cox. "During the time I was being pulled by the boat, I was concerned about the razor-sharp propeller only inches away from my body," Cox declared. "I was afraid to let go sooner because I thought the boat might circle around and run over me, and it nearly did, after I did let go, missing me by about 1% feet. "I haven't swum for years and would have been unable to reach shore if the accident had occured in mid-river. "After I reached shore, I shouted to Paul (Duke) Cummines, who came along in his boat. Cummines took me aboard and we tried for another ten of 15 minutes to Catch my boat which was still circling We were finally able to grab my boat sideways and stop it. "From now on, I am going to wear a life jacket when boating and also install a 'deadman's throttle' on the boat which will stop the motor when -released." Woman, 86, Boy, 8, in Hospital After Mishaps Four/children and two adults, one an 86-year-old woman, were taken to St. Jospeh's Hospital Thursday for examination and treatment of injuries incurred in accidents. Only two, Mrs. Hedwig Wollbrinck, 86, of 1610 North Main street, Edwardsville, and Henry Gavin, 8, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Gavin of Stanka lane, Godfrey, remained in the hospital. Mrs. Woobrinck suffered a fracture of the left ankle, and the Gavin boy is being treated for abrasions to the left side of his face, back and left arm: Henry was injured when a car was accidentally backed into him. Darrell Golliday, 4, of 312 Central avenue, was treated for a small scratch on his left wrist, inflicted by a cat. Mrs. Mae Lawrence, 557 East Fourth street, received treatment for an ankle injury, said to have been suffered when she fell from a bus. She left the hospital after x-ray examination.

Billie Knight, 11, of 3000 Glenwood avenue sustained lacerations above his right eye and to his elbow in a fall. He left the hospital after emergency treatment. Mouse Almost Cancels Test of Atomic Bomb LAS VEGAS, Nev., June 6, /PA desert mouse holed up in a sensitive camera at a forward area of the Yucca flat testing ground nearly upset the best laid plans of men for setting off the eighth atomic blast in the spring series. The mouse was wooed from his perch yesterday with a slice of cheese. He then was flipped into a case containing 750 other mice being used at the test. The test would have been post- nonod if the mouse had not been coaxed from the camera, test site officials said.

East Germans FindCampaign Helping Allies Ry RICH Ann KASlSCIIKK BERLIN. June 6 /P ~ The East German Communists found today that their scare campaign against West Berlin had backfired and frightened thousands of Russian zone Germans Into flight to the west. West Berlin's crowded refugee stations took \n more than 3510 East Germans during the last three days. In West Germany the flights across the zonal frontier increased. In the past 24 hours, the Coburg frontier station reported, between 300 and 400 East Germans arrived here from areas where the Communists are creating "safety belts" to Isolate their zone from the west. Many of the refugees were youths who feared being drafted into the new East German army the Reds have announced they are forming. Many families fled in fear of a new war. The Russians and their satellite German "people's police" erected new barricades and strengthened border patrols to stop the flow of refugees. The entire Russian-controlled press took up the job of trying to quiet the population. The East Germans were told that it was Free West Berlin which was panicky, and that the Communist "security" measures — the security belt restrictions on interzone travel — were necessary as protection against the west. Again today the Russians barred American and British motor patrols from the Berlin-West German superhighway, ignoring repeated Allied protests. In the heart of West Berlin, Russian tommy-gunners and German Communist propagandists, still stubbornly held out against the British army's siege of Radio Berlin. Potato Prices Shoot Higher Without Ceiling By FRANK O'BRIEN WASHINGTON, June 6, ff— The government reported today that wholesale prices of white potatoes shot up as much as $2 to $4 per 100 pounds overnight after the removal of -"price ceilings. The Office of Price Stabilization (OPS) lifted the controls Jate yesterday after the Senate had voted to exempt fresh fruits and vegetables from price controls beginning July 1. Today, OPS officials quoted figures from the Agriculture Department's marketing news service showing the overnight advance in prices at Pittsburgh and New York for potatoes from California and the Carolinas. The prices are wholesale for U. S. No. 1, size 1, 2 inch potatoes. The report showed that California long white potatoes were selling in New York yesterday at $6.28 to J6.31 per 100 pounds. Today the quotations ranged fropi ?8.f>0 to J9.50, an advance of up to $3.22 per 100. , A produce buyer for a large eastern store chain said: "A lot of speculators are going to get caught with high-priced spuds, and when the dumping begins, these abnormal prices will soon become history. Three more weeks should see plenty of potatoes in most stores." Price Director Ellis Arnall announced the revocation of the government's five-month-old price ceiling on white potatoes. Candidate Threatened ROSS, Calif., June 6 /P — A police guard was maintained today at the estate of Vincent Hallinan, Progressive party candidate for president, after a man telephoned threats of a "death in your family" unless given $5000. The man failed io appear at a preplanned loca- ion last night, D-Day Anniversary Ridgeway Warns Communists War Would Be Destruction By JOSEI'H E. DVXAN ON THE NORMANDY BEACHES, France June 6—^—Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway marked the eighth anniversary today of the Normandy D-Day with a warning to the "Lords of Communism" that another war "would bring dreadful suffering to us, but it would bring destruction to them and their power," Ridgway spoke at ceremonies on Utah beach commemorating the thousands who died there in the June 6,1944, invasion that launched the final conquest of Nazi Germany. The general himself parachuted at the head of his 82nd airborne division behind the German lines at nearby Sainte Mere Iglise, several hours ahead of the invasion waves. Ridgway said the nations of the west now have banded themselves together in North Atlantic treaty alliance "whose sole and enduring aim U to maintain the freedom and to preserve the peace we have so lately re-won at so fearful a cost. The alternative was slavery. . . . We have aggressive intent toward none." Ridgway referred to "the illimitable reservoirs of our own strength" and declared: "If these historic evidences of strength should be mistaken by the lords of Communism as indications of weakness, be construed as signs of a declining civilization that places peace before freedom, comfort before sacrifice, self before common good, that error would bring dreadful suffering 'to us, but it would bring destruction to them and their power." "... let no one underestimate our resolve to live as free men, in our own territories, engaged in our own peaceful pursuits," he continued. "Above all let no one mistake our patience, our tolerance, our constant quest for peaceful solutions at the council table as evidence of fear.'* Optimistic Hue To Steel Strike Peace Parleys Negotiations Her,rased For Study of Plan ' Rv NORMAN WAT-Kfltt WASHINGTON. June 6 A 1 Government-sponsored peace talks in the steel strike recessed today to permit industry leaders to study bargaining proposals, The four-hour delay was announced by presidential assistant John ,R. Steelman, who last night reported "real negotiations going on." The delay was requested by board chairman Ben Moreell of the Jones & Laughlin Steel Co., head of the management negotiating team. Steelman said Philip Murray, head of the .650,000 striking CIO United Steelworkcrs, readily agreed. There was some hope of an oarly settlement of the dispute. Democratic Leader McFarland of Arizona told the Senate last night there might be a settlement over the weekend. The Senate then put aside all legislation dealing with the strike. Steelman wasn't so specific but said he had talked with McFarland. Steelman said both sides had been discussing intensively all the complex issues involved. The walkout started Monday after the Supreme Court voided Truman's seizure of the steel industry. More than 100,000 mine, rail and other workers have also been idled by the steel shutdown. The first break in the nationwide strike came late yesterday with announcement that the Detroit Steel Corp. had reached a contract agreement with the steelworkers, covering 4500 employes. Details of the agreement were not announced but a district union official said they embodied Wage Stabilization Board recommendations. They called for a "package" wage increase amounting to 26 cents an hour by next January. In the Washington talks, it was reliably reported the union shop- also recommended by the wage board—was the subject of the most bitter dispute. This would require all steelworkers to join Philip Murray's CIO Union after being hired. McFarland's statement to .the Senate that an agreement may be in the making won a 42-38 vote to suspend until Monday action on legislation to extend wage, price and other controls. The immediate effect of McFarland's statement was to cut off action on a motion by Sen. Byrd (D-Va) to have the Senate go on record as urging Truman to invoke the 80-day no-si rike injunction provisions of the Taft-Hartley law. Believes Chance Better With Ike Back CINCINNATI, Juno 6, /P ~- U.S. Senator Robert A. Tftft of Ohio believes his chances for the Republican presidential nomination have been improved since Gen. Dwlght D, Elsenhower's speech at Abilene, Kan., Wednesday. The Ohio senator didn't elaborate, but that was the answer he gave to a question put to him last night on a radio broadcast of "Reporters' Roundup." The senator was questioned by Joseph Sagmastcr, associate editor of the Cincinnati Times-Star; Joseph Garrctson, Cincinnati Enquirer columnist, and Robert L. Rlggs, political writer for the Louisville Courier-Journal, Discussion of Gen. Eisenhower's speech also brought a statement from Taft that he had the Impression the general favors repeal of the Taft-Hartley labor law. Taft added, however, that "1 hbpe that I'm wrong in my understanding of what Gen. Eisenhower said." He reiterated his belief that the law "is the most effective way today of stopping strikes." Eisenhowci said in a speech Wednesday the settlement of grievances and disputes requires ''a climate of good will, an appreciation of good citizenship, and responsible concern for all the people- 1 —and— most important—public confidence in the fairness and impartiality of appointed agents and agencies." An ounce of real leadership and honest speech, the general added, will benefit America more than a ton of law that fails to reflect the considered will of the vast majority. "We cannot take legislation that compels people to work," Eisenhower said at a news conference "that is regimentation." On the subject of the war in Korea, Sen. Taft said, "I would try to make peace even though it may be an unsatisfactory peace." Declaring the Korean affair had been "mismanaged," Taft said there is "great risk in resuming general war with the Chinese Communists." The Ohio senator renewed his plea for a .strong air force which he said was necessary to protect the nation. Taft added that the United States would be openv'to.air attack, from Siberia jr across the Arctic, even though there was a "wall of men across Europe." • Taft was asked whether he felt the United States, would be in "mortal danger" if Europe fell and his reply was: "It would increase the threat to -this -country, but I would be unwilling to admit the loss of Europe made this country unsafe. I-think we still could defend this country." Ike's Answers Start Ripple on Political Pool 'Another New York Slated Saturday Ambassador From Russia Gets Recalled Army Private Blocks Grenade To Save Pals WASHINGTON. June 6 fl> — Russian Ambassador Alexander Panyushkin announced today he is returning to Russia. U.S. diplomatic officials said Georgi M. Zarubin, former Soviet ambassador at London, has been selected to replace Panyushin here. Zarubin was summoned back to Moscow from London May 29. His name has been submitted to the stale department for its approval. Zarubin was ambassador to Canada at the time a Russian spy ring allegedly stole some atomic secrets. American officials said they understood, however, that. Canadian board of inquiry cleared him of any direct connection with the ring. Panyushkin told reporters he is leaving the United States forever, "in connection with a new appointment." WITH U. S. 45TH DIVISION, Korea, June 6 — /P — An army privale who fell on an exploding Chinese grenade to save three buddies from dcalh or injury suffered only minor bruises, thanks to one of the army's new nylon vests. Pfc. Emile Pinard said the explosion lifted him off the ground and knocked him unconscious. A three-inch piece of steel ripped into the vest and crumpled both of his dog tags. But the vest wasn't: punctured and Pinard was not hurl. Pinard, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Pinard of Fairhaven, Mass,, was on a patrol when the grenade landed beside the four soldiers. "We all hit the ground and I found myself right next to the grenade," he said. "I couldn't move away from it because someone was lying next, to me. So I rolled on it. It would have got me anyway." Matter Suspends Licenses of Two Tavern Owners EDWARDSVILLE. — C. o u n t y Liquor Commissioner Gus Ilaller today suspended tho liquor licenses of two Collinsville road tavern owners pending a hearing June 12 jefore the commission.

It cOVere^ domestic, foreign arid political Issues and stirred up highly-divergent comment. , Under a barrage of question;* from newsmen at the Abilene, Kan., conference yesterday, Eisenhower said he believes: 1. World peace and security 1« the issue of the day. 2. There is no ready solution to the Korean problem and any expansion of the war there would be dangerous unless the Allies , build up military strength. ( , : 3.

Taft (Optimistic Taft, in a Cincinnati radio broadcast last night, Said he believes his chances have improved since Eisenhower's debut speech Wed; nesday. The Senator did not elal^ orate. Eisenhower backers, like Sen. Frank Carlson of Kansas, .were jubilant over the Abilene appearances. Carlson said they caused "national sentiment to shift "toward Ike— some, delegates who came here as Taft men are now for Eisenhower." But a' Taft booster, Sen. Hugh Butler of Nebraska differed: "Instead of calling him General Eisenhower,, wq should call .him generalized : Eisenhower." • -The National Association for 1 the • Advancement of Colored People wired Eisenhower: "The failure ol 37 of the states to take any affirmative action to assure equality ol job opportunity points to the urgency of the need for federal ac lion 1 — we urged you to recon sider. . . ."

Heat Same Strain As Work According to Scientist's Tests CHICAGO, June 6 /P- if you're against strenuous exercise, you might want lo stay in bed during the next heat wave. A report issued today by the Medical Research Institute of the Michael Reose Hospital indicated that heat can place as much strain on the human heart as does exertion, i The institute said studies show that merely moving about in a temperature of 94 degrees places as much strain on the hcfrt as does heavy labor under moderate temperatures. Dr. Gerald R. Graham, who wrote the report based on a review of medical literature, said the first effect of heat on the human body is an enormously increase- heart rate — sometimes as much as 43 percent. He cited a heat room lest made in New Orleans last winter by investigators from the I.puisiana Stale University. Twenty-live per- sons, 1'2 of whom suffered from heart disease, were placed in a humid room with a temperature of 10-1 degrees He added: Those with heart disease showed early signs of collapse and had to be moved to an air conditioned atmosphere within 40 minutes, The normal subjects remained up to 114 minutes, and were removed when they showed signs of weakness, visual failure, faintnesi and headaches. Dr. Graham told a reporter in response to a question about his report that persons residing in hot climates become acclimatize)] to heat. He added that marked, fluctuations, "particulirly repeated or prolonged increases in tempera* ture or humidity" were UJidj8«v able for persons with cWipftjva heart failure. The study was financed by th» Mitchell Air Conditioning Foundation ot Chicago.
