PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING THURSDAY, JULY 3,195* Editorial And There It Is you read the Declaration of Independence . . . , It'* Worth reading if you've never read it before. If you have, it's worth reading again— and again and again. : On July 4, 1776 the Declaration was adopted by the Continental Congress as an expression of th« ideals and aims which prompted the American colonies to seek separation from Great Britain. It represents the expression of the soul of this country. la observance of the approach of the great holiday itt this nation's history, we reptiblish the Declaration in hopes that our readers will absorb the feeling and thought behind the great document more thoroughly: ... When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the politi- ctl., bands which have connected them with an- Sf : attd to assume among the powers of the earth, for trie tenure of their office* and trie amount and 1 payment of their salaries. He has erected a multitude of new offices, and] sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. Hr has kept among us, in times of peace, sund 1^yj° ing armies, without the consent of our legislatures. j saylng David Lawrence Time To Look Gift Horse ^| •• •• « f |lf» JVlOlltll WASHINGTON — Maybe It's bp a tough Christmas the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalicnable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes obstructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to. institute a new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that government long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experjence hath shown that mankind arc more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the fame object, evinces a design to reduce thei under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; artd such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present king of Great Britain is a history of" continued injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an ' absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world. He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. He has forbidden'his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained, and -when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people unless He has affected to render the,military independent of and superior to the civil power. He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to pur constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation: Tor quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: l : or protecting them by ttock trial from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states: For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world: For imposing taxes oh us without our consent'. For depriving us in many cases of the benefit of trial by jury: For transporting us beyond the sc.is to be tried for pretended offenses: For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing there- jt ^ don >, look a gift horse inline mouth" — has, in effect, now been repealed by a congressional committee. ery recipient of Hereafter ev- presumably must figure out what the motive of the sender really is and, If in doubt, proceed at once 1o refuse the gift even though this offends the donor. Also, the Internal Revenue Service — which hither to has not usually inquired into what the motive of the giver is when he deducts as expense, for tax purposes, something he spends for an actual or potential customer in business — will now be on the snot unless it establishes the those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. He has called together legislative bodies at places, unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the repository of their public records for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. He has, dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing, with manly firmness, his invasions on the rights of the people. He has refused for a" long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their'exercise the states remaining in the meantime exposed to the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither ant raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands. He has obstructed the administration of justice by refusing his assent to laws establishing judician powers He has made judges dependent on his will alone moreover, whether a ! in an -arbitrary government and enlarging itsjtrue motive.

He has abdicated government here by declaring us out of its protection and waging war against us He has plundered our seas, ravished our coasts burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation. He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their countrymen, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst _., and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions. In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated in- ury. A prince whose character is thus marked by jvery act which may define a tyrant is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and us dirl or did not have a relationship to Iho conduct of the business o; the donor.

Possibly the Democrats, who are responsible for raising 1he issue, will have to face the indignation of retail stores generally if the gift business takes a big dip in sales lext Christmas Motivation Certainly man;' a citizen, es pecially in the business world has been asking himself recent ly whether all the gifts tha come from others from whom he buys products are properly motivated, and whether, if de ducted as business expenses by the giver, this makes the reclpi ent an unwitting party to a "conspiracy" to get a tax deduction. Many a subordinate officer in a company will ask himself whether the entertainment he received did or did not prejudice nis own award of contracts. He will wonder whether, if the In- terndl Revenue Service records show it, this means the recipient, in effect, was bribed or at least mproperly influenced. As for government officials in both the executive and legislative branches, they will be confronted by a dilemma, too.

I 25 and 5O Years Ago "Ralph's going to Europe for three months, and he's letting me borrow Curly till he gets back!" Reader'* Forum Battle of Piasa Corner The editor's note on my Piasa traffic letter really gives me a big gripe. In the tirst place if there are wheel tax dodgers in the city, like the editor's note says, whose fault is it? Surely riot the taxpayers' who use this intersection every day. What seems to be wrong with our traffic at Broadway and Piasa? I really can't remember a serious vehicle accident in that area, or a pedestrian mishap on Piasa Street. The lighting facilities are ade- iquate. Not so long ago the Telegraph! I do remember one Friday af- published the amount of wheel tax collected by the city and the editor gave the administration a 'well done", then went on to explain how the money was used to fix the city's streets. But the editor's note hinted this money was used to pay patrolmen for this extra duty during the day's heaviest traffic. If the city is too poor to pay for traffic control at Third and Piasa and Broadway and Piasa, why not close the streets? In this case the merchants of the area would chip in and buy the city a traffic control system. Who pays for the traffic, control all the way down Broadway? For Langdon Street it's the bridge; at Ridge it's the meat packing company; at Washing- ion it's the glass company. Further on it's the Steel works, the Box Board, and lead works. As little as the city of Jersey- auto to see his congressman orjville., is, it can afford stop and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by tliC| senato) , in or( j er to try to get go lights on its main street.

Tf*C tllf* Stl*f tics of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They, too, have been deaf to the voice of justice, and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity which denounces our separation, an3 hold them, as we hold the rest "of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends. \Ve, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in general congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions do, in the name, and by authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, am! of right ougln to be, free and independent state*: that are absolved from all alle- thc British Crown, and that all political between them and the State of Great Britain is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free anc. independent states they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor. » .. something done that affects his more than can be said of thej ll's the business, is this expense a legi-city of Alton. gicnce to connection Embracing Civic Responsibility Laclede Steel Co. has indicated a willingness to embrace community responsibility toward local government in petitioning for annexation to the city of Alton. This is not the first symptom of this realization, however. The steel firm and its employes have consistently led all other organized activity in the community in providing blood donation- to the Red Cross. Wbik th* employes have Ijrgely been the blood donor*, and the organization work was carried out 'by them, the company has been fully cooperative in providing any needed -leadership, and allowing time of the workers for the effort. One thing not generally known, too, is that William Akin, president of Laclede, provided funds Decenary for the survey in the area made under auspice* of the Southwest Illinois Committee on Higher Education to determine need for a state college or university to serve Madison and St. Clair counties. Now we find Laclede taking the lead in what we hope will be a general move into the city's limit! by ill the huge industrial complex immediately to the eait. Such a move, at Mayor Day points out, probably would lower the corporate tax rate for the city lor the present by providing a larger base of valuation to spread it on. It could provide timate deduction for tax purposes? Does it mean that the public official who benefited is compromised? The law prohibits any tax deduction for "lobbying" directed .at Congress. It says, nothing about "lobbying" directed at the executive branch. There can, of course, be no penalty imposed for exercising the constitutional right of petition. The courts have never really FREDERICK J. MILLER, Jerseyville ternoon last February Mother Nature dumped a few thousand tons of snow on our downtown streets and must say the traffic in that area was pretty well fouled up. Let's suppose Police Chief Heafner assigns six traffic policemen at Broadway and Piasa, and six patrolmen at Third and Piasa. Can these 12 men speed the traffic? The cars are coming from somewhere, and if the conditions are normal, the heavy traffic will eventually reach its destination. But when thousands of cars pour into the downtown section at certain times of the day, there, is bound to be a slowdown somewhere along the line, regardless of how many police are on duty. If Mr. Miller is in a big hurry to get back to his farm in Jersey county, why doesn't he take the North Alton route over Central Avenue and keep away from traffic. trucks and the cattle trucks that clutter up our downtown streets. THE LOCAL KID A six-year-old boy, Allen Kirgan, was saved from drowning at Lindberg Park, when two girls found him on the bottom of .the pool after they had gone down the sliding board together. George Hornsey, who was nearby when the girls gave the alarm after touching the lad's body, carried the boy to Herb Whittleman, lifeguard. Both the men worked frantically over the child until they had revived him. Summer resort weather reached Alton on the Fourth of July eve, after several torrid days when the temperature topped 100 degrees. The drop in temperature was believed the result of a tornado which struck near Chicago. Winners in the swim meet held at Wood River pool, who would represent that city in contests during the summer were: 200-yard relay for men, ttelbert and William Jones, John Fuderich and O. J. Mikola; 50-yard dash, Olive Harrington, Delbert Jones; 200-yard swim for men, D. Jones; underwater swim for boys over 120 pounds, Dixon Tuley; underwater swim for men, F. Fuderich; 50-yard dash for girls under 95 pounds, Mary Lucille DeLong; 50-yard dash for boys under 120 pounds, Tom Young; and 200-yard relay for boys under 120 pounds, William Doll, Paul Todd, William Corrigan and Tom Young. Five Ursuline nuns were professed in a ceremonial held at Ursuline Novitiate on Danforlh street, in the presence of friends and relatives. In the absence of Msgr. E. L. Spalding, the Rev. P. J. Smyth, chaplain at the novitiate, was in charge of the ceremonial, and the Rev. Father Butties of Springfield's St. Aloysius Church delivered.the sermon. The nuns were Sisters Rita Marie Heger, Decatur; Elizabeth Marie Landry, Lafayette, La.; Anna Marguerite Gros, San Antonio, Tex.; Margaret Stewart, Portage des Sioux, Mo; ^Bernard Marie Mumme of New Qrleans. Miss Dorothy Seigler, a former student at the Catholic Children's Home on State St., received the habit of the Order of the Most Prescious Blood at Ruma. She took the name Sister Bernita. The Rev. S. D. McKenny observed his 33rd year as pastor of Cherry Street Baptist Church, and was the second oldest clergyman in point of service in Alton, second only to Msgr. E. L. Spalding, rector o£ Old Cathedral. Sister Mary Josephine Wangard, librarian at Marquette High School in 1932, was named mother superior of the Ursuline Convent on Danforth street, succeeding the Rev. Mother Gertrude. tufa 3,1908 The formal opening of Rock Sprint Park with the first band concert of the season was marred by rain. The park was in fine condition. Many went early in the evening to inspect it, touring the new section given by William Eliot Smith. Pre- "minary to the concert, the Rev. A. A. Tanner made a short dedicatory address. The city had eon* tracted with the White Hussars for a baQd of only 20 pieces. But additional players volunteered their services, and there was a band of 30 for the open* ing program. A shower dissipated the crowd befort the musical program was completed. Officers and members of Alton Division of Naval Militia to number of 75 entrained for Chicago for the annual training cruise on Lake Michigan on the USS Dorothea. Lt. J. B. Maxfield was in command, with 0. J. Paul as lieutenant Junior grade, and William Koehrie as ensign. The militiamen were to be away 10 days. First fireworks accidents of the season had hem reported.
