AttON EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, OCTOBER, 20,1956 Wright Says Hodge Said He Would Take Whole GOP Team Down Too Violent Prisoner 3 CHICAGO # - A high stale of-1 fieiat has lestffled that former! State Auditor Orville E. Hodge; threatened before disclosure of his j embezzlement of 1'fc million dol-j lars of state fund? that "if he went j down, the whole Republican team; Would go down." ; State Treasurer Warren Wright made this disclosure Friday as the U. S. Senate Banking and Currency Committee ended its hearing into the Hodge case. The committee Investigated the rote of .federally insured banks in the state check scandal. Hodge resigned last .Tuly after disclosure of the embezzlement of state funds. He pleaded guilty and is sen-ing a prison sentence of 12 to 15 years. Wright, like Hodge a member of the Republican state administration, told the committee Hodge pleaded with him for protection— particularly in withholding information from newsmen. Asked Coopfration Wright testified Hodge called him .to his office hist June 10 and asked him to withhold auditor records in the treasurer's office from George Thiem, a Chicago Daily News reporter. Thiem at the time was seeking evidence that Hodge was guilty of fraud against thfe state. Revelation of the huge theft .of state funds perpetrated by Hodge had not yet been disclosed. Wright skid he told Hodge his records were "open to everybody." He said Hodge put a news black- tut on his office the following day and had wanted Wright to do ^vise. , t Wright testified that he later jhelped uncover,the Hodge embezzlements. He said he began a .check after hearing rumors that 'some strange things, were happening to the state auditor's office. ^ie said he made photostatic cop- ;ies of 21 state warrants (checks) ^cashed by Hodge and gave them to JGOP Gov, William G. Stratton on July" 5. (Stratton could not be «ached lor comment on Wright's testimony). - Later at a meeting of state offi dais, including Stratton, Hodge and Wright, the state treasurer testified "Hodge told me he was my 'friend and I was his, and he expected me to protect him. He eaid that if he went down, the whole Republican team would go down." Wright also said bankers, as individuals, contributed to his polit- leal'- campaigns. Sees Change After conclusion of the two-week hearing, the Committee chairman, Sen: Tulbright (D-Ark), said he questioned the ''desirability" of federal insurance for state banks which expect to get large deposits of public money in return for polit- •ical contributions. • Fulbright said the Inquiry had "demonstrated conclusively" that several changes should be made in federal banking laws. Several nii- nois banks whose funds are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance "Corporation' were mentioned in the investigation. The Southmoor Bank and Trust Co. of Chicago — where Hoflge cashed many phony state 'checks — is one. Its former presl "dent, Edward A, Hintz, is serving a prison'sentence for his part in 1he Hodge scandal. Friday's witnesses also included Charles J. Fleck, public administration for Cook County (Chicago) and 1952 campaign manager for Gov. Stratton, who is Seeking reelection, in November. , Fleck testified Hintz contributed $4,600 to Stratton's current campaign, but that after learning of the developing Hodge scandal he returned it to Leon Marcus, a principal stockholder in the Southmoor bank. Marcus also has been indict ed in connection with the Hodge case.

WASHINGTON ff — A surprise message from Soviet Premier Bul» ganin to President Eisenhower took on aspects today of a potential political hot potato. With Eisenhower out of the city, the State Department kept secret both the content and the general subject matter of Bulganin's 17- page letter. But its delivery to Secretary of State Dulles brought immediate speculation among administration officials that whatever Bulganin was writing about, it could hardly be expected to pass unnoticed in the political debates which have turned in part on foreign policy issues. The first thought of many in the foreign policy side of the Elsen bower administration was that Bulganin was seizing a new opportunity, in the light of argument here over ending hydrogen bomb test explosions, to press Russia's long standing proposal forjzalling off all nuclear tests. * That subject was included in Bulganin's last previous note, de- livored early in September. Officials, saying Eisenhower still has made no response to that dispatch, expressed some interest in the timing of the hew letter. Russia's proposals for ending atomic tests ha've been repeatedly brushed aside by the Eisenhower administration, which contends that tests must be continued to keep this country ahead in the arms race unti^ some broad disarmament program is agreed on. Democratic presidential candidate Adlai E. Stevenson has challenged the administration position, arguing that H-bomb tests could be safely halted in agreement with other atomic powers 'and that the United States should take the lead in efforts to halt them. The Bulganin note was delivered to Dulles late Friday by Andrei M. L e d o v s k i, Soviet embassy counselor. Dulles told LedovsM it would be translated and presented to Eisenhower Sunday -following the President's return to Washington from his present campaign trip. * Stale Publishes Report On Water Use URBANA—Changing patterns of water use in Illinois homes is the subject of a report published this week by the state water survey division of the Department of Registration and Education. The report, written principally for use by Illinois towns in planning future water supplies, offers a new method of calculating the amount of water each person uses per day. The study was initiated when the water survey' found that, contrary to the national trend, per capita use of water in some Illinois towns appeared to have declined in the, period 1920-1953. Further study revealed that the present method of calculating water use is subject to error. Per capita water use,-.the report suggests, can be more accurately determined on the basis of sales per water service connection, taking into consideration that a declining number of people per household are using increasingly more water, At present, per capita water use is calculated as a quotient of the total amount of water pumped and the population of a given town. This method, according to the report, is in error since (1) public water service is often extended to people outside the corporate limits of a municipality, (2) industrial and commercial water use are included in the total pumpage figures, and (3) the number of persons per household declined 30 per cent in the 1900-53 period whereas the number of households rapidly increased.

RYAN AP Foreign News Analyst There can be little doubt about it now—Moscow is scared. The naked Soviet interference in the internal affairs of the Polish Communist Central Committee had to be dictated by a consideration as strong as fear. The reasons for Soviet intrusion on the Polish meeting had to be of 'the utmost importance to the Kremlin for it to risk exposing itself before the world in an act of colonialism. Moscow would be extremely embarrassed now if it had to use force to reimpbse discipline in Poland and Hungary, the two satellite Communist countries which are rushing headlong toward some form of political independence. But the Russians may yet have to apply force. If they do, Khrushchev's days as the boss of Communism are numbered. The Russians fostered public discussion and even debate in the satellite countries. This was a safety valve, a means of letting off public steam and avoiding explosions from the rising discontent in these countries. The relaxations got out of control. Anti-Russianism, always strong in Poland and Hungary, combined with resentment of Stalinism and brought about a split in the ranks of the satellite Communist parties between the national Communists and those who feel they'need Moscow's protection and discipline to retain power. Moscow still has the means to apply force to stem the tifie,., The Kremlin can twist economic screws to bring governments of satellite countries into line. If that fails to cow the public in these countries, a more naked form of force, even the use of Soviet troops may be needed. Use of military — or even economic — force, against countries whose people hungrily reach for a taste of freedom would tend to destroy the "we love peace and coexistence" campaign the Russians have been carrying on. It would expose them as ruthless colonialists and damage the position they so craftily "built up in .former colonial countries. The ruling group in Moscow thus faces a dilemma, and if it cannot be resolved without serious damage to the Kremlin's cause, then somebody is going to have to pay. That somebody likely is Nikita Khrushchev, first secretary and boss of the Soviet Communist party. The growing ferment in the satellite nations and the growing confusion among the world Communist rank and file are bound to start a quarrel in the Kremlin, where there likely is deep resentment of the way Khrushchev and his ' cohorts threw their weight around. Trouble in eastern Europe can be the excuse for a move against Khrushchev & Co. In this respect, one man who cannot be counted out of the picture is Georgi Malenkov, whom Khrushchev pushed from top positions in party and government. Church Notes SOUTH ROXANA — The Rev. W. 0. Reinhardt, pastor of the South Roxana and Wanda Methodist Churches, will use as his theme at 9:20 a.m. at the Wanda church and 10:45 a.m. at the South Roxana church "The\Test of Disclpleship" and at the 7:30 p.m. service at the Wanda church "What Are You Doing With Your Life?"

LIVINGSTONE EN ROUTE WITH KEFAUVER ff— Sen, Estes Kefauver today invaded the home grounds of his favorite political target, Vice President Richard Nixon, to lam- bast the record of the man he continues to call the "new Nixon." Kefauver's chartered plane took him into California from Salt Lake City, where Friday night he accused the Eisenhower administration of playing favorites with the private utilities in the development of western power resources. Before leaving Utah, Kefauver surprised riewsmen by leaving the inference with a"news conference that the Democrats were trailing the Republican Eisenhower-Nixon team. In an appraisal of Democratic election prospects, Kefauver volunteered the opinion the Democratic national ticket "is rapidly closing the gap on President Eisenhower." Was Kefauver conceding he and Adlai Stevenson were running behind the Republicans, he was asked, "I think we were running behind," Kefauver replied, "It may be we haven't caught up yet. I think we are gaining ground.' Kefauver's California schedule called for a two-day stumping tour taking him first to Ghico, thence to Sacramento'and tonight to Los Angeles for a speech over a nationwide closed-circuit television program to Democratic party fund raising dinners. He carried into California his attack on Nixon as one he said has voted in Congress against labor, agriculture,, schools, housing, power and reclamation development, small business and increases in the school lunch program. In remarks prepared for delivery at .campaign stops during the day, Kefauver said Nixon's voting recor-d was made as a member of the'House and the Senate "before there was a new Nixon" running for national office. "Right now the new Nixon does the talking but the old Nixon always does the voting," he said. Tolle Closed As Work on Project Pushes Ahead GODFREY — Tolle road was closed Friday as improvement work got underway in earnesl on the important link between Godfrey and Humbert roads.

It -was expected that the job would take about three weeks to complete, Grading work was in progress Friday. A 20-inch deep bed of rock will form the base of the road. Henry J, Warden Rites Conducted Funeral rites, with mass by the Rev. Father August Sperl, were conducted at 9 a. m. today in St. Mary's Church for Henry J. Warden. The Rev. Father Joseph Sehertmann had conimitta. rites in Valhalla Memorial Park. Pallbearers were Warren Kleffner, All and Emile Schneider, Charles Campbell, James Churchick and Dale Lenhardt. The annual growth in world population has increased from about 20 to about 40 million a year in the past 20 years. Asks Adlai For Queries On Bomb By LOUIS t»ANOS TIMONIUM, Md. Mi-Vice President Nixon challenged Atllai Stevenson Friday night "to call an open press conference at which he can be cross-examined" on his draft and H-bomb proposals. Winding up n two-week, 10,009- mile campaign swing amid a flourish of fireworks at n Republican rally on the Maryland State fairgrounds near Baltimore Nixon said the Democratic presidential candidate "has refused" to submit to press questioning on these issues. Nixon said each new Stevenson speech and statenient on the H- bomb tests "presents a new inconsistency." Stevenson has said, if elected president, he would seek a worldwide agreement to end the testing of hydrogen bombs. He also has suggested an end to the draft when national security permits. About 4,000 turned up at the Timonium race track on the fair grounds to hear what was billed as Nixon's major reply to Stevenson on these issues. ( "There is one way in which he can clear up all the confusion he has created and to let the American people know what his actual thinking is," said Nixon. President Eisenhower and other top Republican officials have submitted their views "to the impartial and objective cross-examination of our nation's free press," he said. "But Mr. Stevenson has refused to permit the press to examine him on the draft, the H-bomb and other questionable issues that he has raised during his campaign. "And, therefore, I tonight challenge him in the interest of clarifying these matters of such deep concern to Americans everywhere ... to call an open press conference at which he can be cross- examined by the men and women whose professional duty if is to keep our country informed." The Vice President said abandonment of H-bomb tests "without the iron-clad inspection which President Eisenhower has demanded" would be "exactly what Mr. Khrushchev—the Soviet party chief—and Mr. Bulganin—the Soviet premier—want us to do." Serviceman Admits Three Burglaries After being up Friday before the police on a report from military authorities that he was absent without leave, 'a 19-year-old Alton infantryman, recently stationed in Germany, gave a. signed statement admitting he had committed three minor burglaries in the last seven weeks. The youth admitted an intrusion last Aug. 31 at a Shell service station in East Alton, and to breaking into the Red Top lunchroom, 1201 Belle St. Sept. 3, and into Morn's Drive-in, 1009 Belle St., Sept. -23. Police had records of the two Alton burglaries, and asked East Alton police to try to determine what Shell station might have been entered. Further investigation was being made today in an effort to determine whether the serviceman might have fabricated his admissions in an effort to avert return to Army service. However, issuance of a burglary warrant had been authorized, police said at noon. The soldier told police he had been home since mid-July on reenlistment leave and failed to report to Ft. Dix last Aug. 12 when his furlough expired.

(AP Wirephoto Map) Traffic Body Discusses 1-Way Plans Although a quorum was lacking so that any definite recommendation might be adopted, members of the City Traffic Commission at a meeting Friday afternoon at City Hall gave further discussion to a proposal, pending in City Council, to make Tremont a 1-way street. Before the Council is a resolution to make Johnson street 1-way for southbound traffic from College to Tremont; and to make Tremont a 1-way street west to Central. Before reaching a decision, the Traffic Commission has been studying how a 1-way rule would affect Central School at 1043 Tremont. Main effect on the school building would be with regard to moving pupils to and from the building on busses. In discussion with representatives of the schools and bus operators, yesterday, it was learned school busses might be rerouted to use Pleasant street without working undue hardship or creating extra hazards to the school children if Tremont is made a 1-way route. Informally suggested to the commissioners was that no action has been taken in City Council since the paving of Market street between Third and .Sixth with regard to the temporary route followed by the city buses. The buses now follow a route by way of Alby between Fifth and Third, and Third between Alby and Market. This is a temporary houte or detour set up when paving work blocked Market. Formerly the buses used Market street between Third and Fifth. Recently there have been suggestions the buses should go back to the old established route before winter weather sets in. View expressed by those at the commission meeting was that a possible route change was a matter for the Council to initiate, and that the commission would undertake. no recommendation on its own volition.
