About JJ td 40 years ago, little 'groups have undertaken to raise funds to serve as the basic support 6f the. property. Two or three efforts were made far back in the past, with the purpose of solidly finan- dflg the cemetery. But after it seemed that success r wa§ within their grasp the devoted people who had born« the torch for the support of the old Alton cemetery have had to find out that income from investments had dwindled and that at least double the amount once believed sufficient would be needed to carry on in the future. But the cost of upkeep has been growing, too. The work must be done again. It is something to justify satisfaction that the Alton cemetery's cash reserves in their trust funds have grown to such a figure as to make it seem probable the fondest hopes of old will be realized. In Alton cemetery are stones which bear names that were of highest import in the olden days. Members of the old families have long since disappeared except on the marble and granite slabs marking burial places. A tour of the cemetery reveals all that is left — names of those who founded and carried on the most important institutions in the area, remnants of historic names are there. On many of the slabs weather and time have near erased the names. : The devoted few who have, refused to lose heart, have kept everlastingly at it, have done much to perpetuate the memories attached to the site selected in the early days as the sport where the humble as well as those of high rank and distinction should be laid. Those who have acred that the old cemetery should not fall into neglect and decay Have created for themselves * fitting monument in the well kept cemetery which less than a. half century ago seemed hopeless, a ncgletted friendless spot in the heart of the city of Alton. Headline Writers Haft About Taft? When Bob Taft of Ohio was born, his future was .cut out for him. He was destined to hie the headlines for any newsworthy thing he.did. Why? government on Ms shoulderi, must afro dig in ind enforce sortie of the finer points of our liquor regulations too — though Annually he and hit county board cudgel their brains to raise fund* for the.piy of * large sheriff* naff. Our liquor regulations, some of our county authorities might bi reminded, prohibit operation of a bawdy house in connection with a licensed disperi- sary of booze. ' , So Gus Miller, chairman of the county 'board of supervisers, and automatically county liquor commissioner, has announced he is going to deprive two Collinsville road joints of their liquor licenses. The move is being based on reports of several state liquor commission investigators, Mailer's moves may be open to legal question on the part of the operators named. From time to time it has been contended by authorities that licensees first must be convicted of charges through customary channels before the liquor commission can take their licenses away. But Mailer, advised otherwise by state officials, has taken courage and is trying to clean up a stinking mess. Former Sheriff Dallas Harrcll has been criticized roundly on occasion for his failure to clean up gambling in the county. Me was even summoned, and made more or less spore of, before the Kcfauver crime investigating committee. To his credit, however, he never left enforcement of anti-prostitution provisions in the state liquor law up to-a gray- haired veteran of county service who shouldn't have to be dirtying his hands with it after the years he's given to the public. His name has four letters, short and sweet. He is a headline writer's dream boy. What's most delicious about Taft's name, from a technical news standpoint, is the fact that it has an "f" and a "t" in it, which makes it even skinnier in a headline than most four-letter words. And this is easier to fit. If Bob* Taft were not the great, noble citizen that everyone says he is, he still would gain headline fame—even if he would do only such things as judge a baby contest, or catch a prowler, or clip a cop, or sit on a flagpole for 47 Vi days. The last one's an intriguing idea, imagine this headline: "Taft Still Sits oh Flagpole; Long May He Wave." A point of recent history illustrates the value of having a headline name. A governor of Iowa named Blue was seen in the big print more often than his predecessor, Hickenlooper, although the state executive with the long name was generally considered more active and newsworthy. r . So to parents, this advice: If you want your son to be famous, change his last name to a short one. SideGlancei T. M. fti(. U. I 'It Off. t»M bv NCA'fcnfci. Int. "Your losing on these primary elections is keeping me broke, grandpa! Instead of money, can't you bet your cronies at the corner a wheelbarrow ride?" Lawrence Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Black Eyes Future WASHINGTON, June 6 - Tnere were some strange paradoxes about the fact that Justice Hugo Black handed down the Supreme Court's 'historic majority opinion turning the steel mills back to private operation. Paradux No^ 1 and the stranges of all was the fact that the stee industry did' its best to Black from'.taking*''his seat 6ri the Supreme Court when he" was first appointed in 1937. At that time, Frank Prince, a noted private detective, employed by Republic Steel, dug up Black's record as a former member of the Ku Klux Klan and turned it over to Ray Sprigle of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Sprigle was awarded the Pulitzer prize for the expose. The reverberations which followed caused Black*to be challenged regarding his fitness to sit on the bench, caused Chief Justice Hughes to withhold the customary note.of f congratulations and caused a storm of press criticism led by Scripps- Howard,' plus others which now sing Black's praises. The new Supreme Court justice was hounded by the press upon his return from Europe. The Alabama Klansman, R. P. Day, who supplied the affidavits exposing Black, fell under a train and was killed the day after the expose. And various corporation lawyers planned to challenge Black's right to sit on their cases. Champion Of Labor Paradox No. 2 is the fact that behind big business opposition to Black's appointment was his vigorous pro-labor record as a senator. Yet in contrast to his earlier record in the Senate, Black has now written an opinion generally criticized by labor. As a senator from Alabama, a conservative, agricultural slate, Hugo Black might well have been anti-labor. Instead, he took on one of the most courageous and thankless jobs in the Senate, the sponsorship of the wage-hour regulation bill. His colleague, the lato Sen, Bankhead was opposed, as were many southern senators. Despite this, and despite threats to de-foal him at the next election, Black pushed the wage-hour bill through the Senate, It was one of the most outstanding personal triumphs of the New Deal legislative program. No wonder the steel industry and big business raised hands in horror when they read of his appointment to Hie Supreme Court. Paradox No. 3 is the editorial praise Black is. receiving this week from some of the newspapers he once battled. As a member of the Senate, Black got to know the late Tom Walsh of Montana, who unearthed the Teapot Dome scandal. Following in his footsteps, Black }aunche4 a probe of merchant marine subsidies which saved the taxpayers millions and which general accounting watchdog Lindsay Warren would like to see duplicated today.

Truth About Block The truth about Hugo Black is that he is a man of great courage, great human understanding, and of great determination to call the legal shots as he sees them no matter .whose toes he steps on. Justice Black has a -long memory. And when he handed down his decision on Monday restoring the steel mills to Republic Steel and others, he did not forget the 1937 attempts by a detective for Repub- ic Steel to smear his reputation and ruin him for life. But Black does not have a vindictive, memory. And when he wrote that opinion he was thinking of svhat he thought was the best course for his country, not for himself. Although Black was not appoint- d to the court by Marry Truman, t happens that he has a high per- ,onal regard for most of the ideals ovvard which the President is triving. Hut in writing his opinion, ic was thinking not-of personalities lor of any one president, but of he future power of all presidents, Too Much Power Opposition to too much power long has been one of the guiding motives of Black's life. When he was elected prosecutor of Jefferson county, Alabama, as a young man, the first thing he did was to end the practice 1 pf collecting "petty fees" from those arrested for minor offenses. On his first day in office, he dismissed 500 cases .of alleged petty offenses, most of them charges of dice games against Negroes arrested on payday. There were vigorous protests from the politicians. Black was charged with turning loose criminals. "These poor people were not arrested because they committed crimes," Black replied, "but for boodle. What was wanted from them was not expiation of offenses against society, but the fees that could be wrung from their pitiful wages." On the other hand, Black 'went after the big boys with a vengeance, even convicting one of the most powerful men in southern Alabama, Frank Boykin, now congressman from Mobile. Boykin was given a three year sentence in a liquor conspiracy case, though a'higher court reversed the conviction. After Black had pioneered the wage-hour bill through the Senate, friend asked him why he wanted thus to antagonize powerful "business interests when Alabama was an agricultural state with little organized labor, "I did it," replied Black, "because of the very simple fact that Alabama's problems cannot be solved unless we solve those problems nationally. Tell me how you ;xpect to improve conditions in our state unless we improve conditions n' all' states. National prosperity means prosperity for farmers in Alabama. That is why I am for his bill." That philosophy also explains ustice Black's opinion on the seizure of the steel mills. Though he may not like the moguls of the teel industry, he was looking Jiead to other, possible seizures un- ler other presidents and under oth- r circumstances. (Copyright, 10521 TOONEKV1LLE FOLKS By Fontaine fo.v Viewpoint of Britain-U. S. Widely Split , By DAVID LAWfcENCE LONDON, June 6.—International understanding has always been a goal of free peoples. It is surprising that as much international understanding as there is exists today in the face of so many complex factors which tend constantly to break it down. When there is a large-scale war, some semblance of military unity is always established. But in an emergency like the present which is almost as serious as war—and, indeed, it is Often called a "cold war"—there W, no psychological unity and there Is also economic disunity. Looking back at all the controversy in Congress about the importance of the "Voice of America" In reaching persons behind the Iron Curtain, one Is tempted to suggest that the "Voice at America" might better be directed, with a different approach than at present, t6 the people of Great Britain and that there also be set up here a "Voice of. Britain" to speak to the American people. For the viewpoints of the two nations are far apart, notwithstanding the wishful' optimism of the diplomats who think everything is going fine. Neither the State department in Washington nor the Foreign Office in Great Britain realizes the extent to which each is damaging the cause of international understanding by carelessly worded comments and statements of public policy, and, in fact, by independent statements made with reckless disregard of the effect upon each others' public opinion. The attitude of the British Foreign Office toward. Korea, as disclosed to the .House of Commons under the prodding of the Laborites, is a far different thing from what the British Foreign Office tells the State department when there are discussions about the Far-East. Prime Minister Churchill, for example, told the American Congress that prompt and resolute action would be taken if the Korean truce talks broke down or if there were a Soviet, attack in Southeast Asm, but here in London there was immediately issued a •public statement that "no commitments have been made". The other day there was discussion in the United States of a possible naval .blockade of China. The Laborites pressed Anthony Eden, the foreign secretary, and he felt It desirable to say that there was "no commitment". This was but another way of telling the Chinese Communists that they needn't worry about & breakdown of the truce talks—nothing would happen as an alternative. Instance after instance indicates that the diplomats are far more concerned about compromises with politicians than with national or International psychology. One mistaken impression prevalent in the United States, however, can readily be dispelled. It has to do with the oft-repeated comment in the United States that Europeans are not grateful for what America has done by way of economic aid. There is no doubt that Britons at least are duly grateful for what America has done. If thanks have not been forthcoming every ten minutes, it is not because the Briton is unmindful of its importance. Likewise, many Americans, upon returning to the United States after visiting Britain, have said Wednesday Ike Totally Unlike Thursdaylk By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK, June 6, (/Pi — H< didn't seem like the same man. Millions of Americans must have felt that way as they watched the startling contrast In Dwlght D Elsenhower's first two major tele vision appearances as a polltica figure.

This must not be construed as meaning that Britons feel they are safe or secure. It is merely that the British have been stunned by war experience and they do not exhibit hysteria even when they are afraid of what might happen in Europe. There' Is a ba&ls for a good understanding between the British people and the American people. But it is retarded by the fact that the British public reads very little of the American viewpoint in the newspapers here. Extracts from editorials ov comments of public men who favor Great Britain are given the greater amount of space. Only occasionally are critical comments published, and then they art minimized. The editorials selected for publication here are from the "left wing" and counterattack, local theater hundreds of newsmen and let them pitch questions at him by the doz ens.

At the close, asked "How do you like this routine?" he grinned, then said earnestly: "When I put my hand to any plow, I know only one rule—to work as hard as you possibly can ...I didn't want to lie to you and say I love all this. I do say that I am in it now with heart and soul..."

A game in which no batter can reach base, whether by hit, walk, or error, earns the .pitcher a perfect game. Quite a long list of pitchers since July 28; 1875 have pitched no-hit games (where no hits ave scored), but only six pitchers have pitched perfect games to date. Q. Can you/tell me ..a good method to counteract dampness under wdod flooring where there is ho basement? J. Y. • A. The National Bureau of Standards says that dampness in the crawl spaces of bsementless houses -may -be largely prevented by providing adequate ventilation and by the use of a soi'l cover which is impermeable to water vapor. A satisfactory cover is 55- pound asphalt prepared roofing. Q. In what cities can I visit a planetarium?, G. M. A. A list of planetariums in the United States is as follows: the Davis in Baltimore; the Little in Boston; the .Buffalo Museum of Sciense in Buffalo; the Morehead in Chapel Hill, N.

Hayden in New York City; the Fels in Philadelphia; the Buhl in Pittsburgh; the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry in Portland; the Seymour in Springfield, Mass.; and the Stamford Museum in Stamford, Conn. Q. Is cancer still the leading cause of death in the United States?—M.A.S. A. No. Heart disease is first, vith cancer second. The latter is he leading cause of death in wo- iien between the ages of 30 and 60. Robert S. Allen Reports Whither Paychecks? WASHINGTON, June 6-If the investigation-minded House of Representatives is looking for a worthwhile subject to probe, It will find it right in its own bailiwick. It's an intriguing mystery. Of the* or in their homeland. the 1780 paychecks that go monthly to employes of members of the House, 825 are mailed to persons living outside of Washington. In other 'words, about half of these congressional employes are not working in Congress—if at all. This curious situation was brought to light by the General Accounting Office during an audit of the congressional payrolls. The report on the study explained that no effort was made to ascertain the identity and nature of the work of those receiving the out-of-town checks. But Comptroller General Lindsay Warren pointedly suggested that the House should investigate the matter. So far, his hint has been ignored. In fact, his report hasn't even been made public. It's being secreted in the safe in the private office of Ralph Roberts, clerk of the House. 'He admits that Wav- reh's report is a public document, but at the same time refuses to make it available to newsmen." Ch'iang'g Army There is at last an official, answer to the long-standing question of .vhy the Nationalist troops on Formosa aren't fighting Korea or can't be used to invade the Chinese mainland. That official answer is—Wy are not capable of doing either. The official source for this answer is Maj. Gen. George H. Olmstead, who as director of the military assistance program is in charge of supplying weapons and munitions to the U. S. allies, including Chiang Kai-shek's fugitive army on Formosa. The U. S. has spent hundreds of millions of dollars maintaining that force. But it t is still incapable of anything but defensive warfare. At the most, all.Chiang's army can do is to defend Formosa. The Nationalists lack the training and equipment to fight in either Korea Of Chiang's approximate 500,000 troops, only 30,000 (the equivalent of two divisions) are capable of combat at this time. Further, they are urgently needed for the defense of Formosa against both internal and external foes. Another 60,000 troops are undergoing battle training, but they are still very short of equipment-*and will continue to be for at least another year. Olmstead presented this inside picture of what is happening militarily on Formosa during a closed- door meeting with the House foreign affairs committee.
