a *fhe Daily Register-Mail, Galesburg, 111, Friday, October 16, 1953 Broyles Says State Is Lax On Red Issue State Sen. Paul W. Broyles of Mt. Vernon asserted in an address here Thursday night that Illinois laws are Inadequately organized to curb the Communist conspiracy. Sen. Broyles spoke before the regular dinner meeting of the Knox County American Legion Couhcil and Auxiliary in the Legion Home, 571 E. North St. An assembly of over 200 persons heard Sen. Broyles deliver a withering denunciation of disloyal elements in Illinois and other parts of the nation. Declared Commie Haven 'T have made the statement many times, that in view of the fact that our laws in Illinois are inadequate, and since many other states have strengthened their laws against this conspiracy, that Illinois would continue to be a haven for Communists," the legislator declared. Sen. Broyles was the chief sponsor of two Senate bills against the Communists- which were later vetoed by Gov. Stratton. Asked what he thought of the action taken by the governor against the bills, Sen. Broyles replied that he thought that Gov! Stratton made a "mistake." Describes Bills One of the bills proposed has in effect of outlawing the Commu -1 nist party in Illinois. The other instrument would provide for the creation of a state commission consisting of five senators, five House members and five public members, for the purpose of investigating the activities of any person or group suspected of being directed toward the overthrow of the federal or state government. It was recalled that both state departments of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars had endorsed these two bills. Cites Loyalty Affidavit Sen. Broyles made reference to the Senate and House action in 1951 when a bill was passed to require candidates for public office to file with their nominating papers, an affidavit disavowing membership in the Commie organization or any other subversive group. In this connection, he assailed those individuals who object to a loyalty oath and affidavit, which he declared is a "simple statement under oath that gives them the privilege to say—I am not a traitor to my country." The speaker pointed out that "American young men who are drafted into the Armed Forces must disavow any Communist leanings before they have the honor of facing Communist bullets." Notes More Objections He further charged the the "same group of muddled and fuzzy-brained individuals also object to adequate laws to outlaw Communist conspirators." Broyles also asserted that "no person who is informed of the facts about this Communist conspiracy would want a Communist to teach his child in any grade, or on any level, nor would he want as a teacher one who defends the right of a Communist to speak." Citing documented evidence of the evU work of this conspiracy, the speaker said "no competent educator, could honestly deny that Communism is a danger to our way of life in America." Makes Recommendations In further emphasizing that Communism is a menace and holds influence in Illinois, Broyles said every state in the nation must cooperate with the federal government by outlawing the Red conspiracy. "Every state should create in- vestgating commissions to root GALE PRODUCTS CITED BY LEGION—A certificate of recognition was presented to Gale Products by the Knox County American Legion .Council Thursday evening when the organization convened here in the Legion Home.

THE DAILY REGISTER-MAIL Phone 4455 T Liquor Dealer 'Not Guilty' Sunday Sale A five-man jury has found Peter Spilios, proprietor of the DeLuxe Cafe, "not guilty" of illegal selling of liquor on Sunday, The jury verdict was delivered Thursday afternoon in a brief trial before Justice John C. Kost. Corporation Counsel John Blake, prosecuting the case for the city, said today that he will not appeal the decision to a .higer court. Spilios, therefore, is cleared of the charge of violating the city ordinance prohibiting Sunday liquor sales. The cafe owner, however, still faces a second charge—violation of state statute. The case, scheduled for Knox County Court, has been continued, pending the calling of a jury, according to Assistant) State's Attorney Dale F. Ruedig Jr. Alderman Reports Sale Alderman. Owen Budd, who signed a complaint in the city case, was the only witness to ap -i pear at the trial Thursday. He testified that he had bought aj half-pint of whisky at the DeLuxei Cafe, 236 S. Seminary St., Sept. 61 at 2:30 p.m. from an employe of the establishment. Attorney Blake submitted an unopened bottle of whisky as an exhibit of the Budd purchase. The attorney told the jury that the cafe owner was responsible for the sale since it was conducted by his agent. The city attorney cited a portion of the city ordinances as follows No alcoholic beverage shall be sold at retail or consumed on any licensed premises on ... . Sunday after the hour of 1 a. m. Cites Possible Revocation Counsel for the defendant declared that the trial could well be the first step toward revocation of Spilios' liquor license. He added that the proprietor should not face such a heavy loss for a sale which he did not make in person. The defense also pointed to the wording of the complaint, "Peter Spilios, doing business as the DeLuxe Cafe, sold liquor on Sunday after the hour of 1 a. m." Spilios had not made the sale in question, it was emphasized. Only a few minutes were used by the jury in reaching a not-guilty verdict. The members were William Bohan, foreman, Burdette Ross, Pete Burkett, Forrest Royce and Jess Pico. A sixth member, Floyd Sargeant, was excused when he arrived after the trial had begun. Attorney Accepts Jurors The jury was accepted without examination by either attorney. The slate was selected by Constable Carl E. Edw'ardson, Justice Kost ordered a jury called shortly before the hearing was scheduled. Alderman Reluctant The alderman arrived at the hearing at 2:20 p. m.—20 minutes after the scheduled time. He testified to his reluctance to appear on the grounds that he has learned of Sunday liquor violations by other establishments—both clubs and taverns. "If others are entitled to violate the ordinance, so is Pete," he concluded. Alderman Budd also stated before the jury that he had warned Spilios several time against Sunday sales. "But if the law can't be observed, we should repeal it," he told a reporter. Mayor Leo Morrison today declined to comment on the Spilios case. He has stated before that the Galesburg Liquor Commission will not consider revocation of the DeLuxe license until after courts hear the cases against SpiLos. Laymen Ask Revocation A spokesman for the Laymen of Galesburg has stated that the organization of church men at a recent meeting adopted a resolution calling on the mayor to revoke the DeLuxe liquor license. A similar request was made weeks ago by the Galesburg Ministerial Association, but the condition was stipulated that the charges against Spilios be proved. The county court case against Spilios was brought on a complaint by Police Chief George Fuller who acted on information obtained from a detective. The investigator has stated that he purchased whisky directly from Spilios on the same Sunday that Alderman Budd reported making a buy. Attorney Ruedig has pointed out that a delay in trial of the case is necessary since county court juries usually are summoned only District commander, is shown presenting the award to Patrick Cahlll, plant manager.

Opposition to Cattle Price Gains Headway Complete Job Of Adding Four Voting Places The vast amount of clerical work required in connection with the addition of four voting precincts in the city was completed today at the office of the Galesburg Election Commission in the City Hall. One precinct was added to the eight in the 3rd ward, one was added to the four in the 7th ward, and the 6th ward's total of six precincts was tipped to eight. In setting up the new precinct in the 3rd ward, the 6th precinct was divided to form the 9th pre cinct. A division of the 3rd pre cinct in the 7th ward made pos sible the 5th precinct in that area Establishment of the 7th precinct in the 6th ward was more complicated as it was necessary to take parts of the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 6th precincts to form the new precinct. The 8th precinct in this ward was brought about by divid ing the 2nd precinct. Considerable study was required to reach a decision as to how the new precincts could be set up. This study was made by George Shirck, Rolland Root and Robert A. Hallberg, Election Commission members, along with Glen Mills,, the group's chief clerk. After the division had been de termined, the personnel in the of fice was increased to handle the WASHINGTON (UP)-Two of the!clerical work. The first step was the writing of new verification books to place the affected voters in the proper precincts. The white cards in the Commission's permanent files were then pulled by streets and arranged alphabetically. A similar procedure was then followed with the yellow cards in the precinct books. The precinct numbers were then changed on both sets of cards. The next step was to mail- notices of the changes to all voters who will go to a new polling place in the next election. Replacement of the white cards in the permanent file and the yellow cards in the precinct books was followed by a final check of the precinct books with the corrected precinct lists. Unless there is a special election, and none is in the offing, the first occasion to use the new voting arrangement will be the primary election next April 13. country's big farm organizations have vetoed the House Agriculture Committee's request for a cattle price support program and three industry groups indicated they also will advise Secretary of Agriculture Ezra T. Benson against the move. Benson Thursday asked 23 livestock and farm groups for their reaction to the proposal which he said would "involve administrative actions of great magnitude and of a complex nature." Actions Set Forth He listed what actions he believed would be necessary, including reimposition of unpopular compulsory grading, and asked the groups to give their opinion as to the possible effect on the "welfare of the livestock and meat industry, as well as on the future beef supply for consumers." The American Farm Bureau Federation has wired Benson that cattle price supports would be a step "toward government price fixing" and "amount to socialization of American agriculture." The National Grange said it believes current emergency measures—federal purchases of canned beef and hamburger, a low-cost feed program, and a livestock loan program—"will gain in effectiveness as more fully used." County Asks Supreme Court To Rehear Strip Mining Case Knox County has asked the Illinois Supreme Court to "rehear the casft of the county zoning ordinance as opposed to strip mining. The court rendered a decision Sept. 24, indicating that the county zoning ordinance is void in banning strip minng. ' A county pettion filed Wednesday asks (1) that the court clarify its decision as to whether 1he zoning resolution is unconstitutional in 1 general or only as it applies to Midland Electric Coal Co. property in Salem Township, (2) that the court review its opinion and grant a re hearing. Could Reopen Arguments AU6rney Burrel Barash, special attorney assisting State's Attorney William H. Small in the strip mining case, said today that rehearing would permit attorneys to re- stale their arguments but would not admit any new evidence in the case. The petition by the county suggests that the court has overlooked or misapprehended certain points, including the economic and general welfare elements of the case. Taking issue with the court's opinion, the petition states that the county will suffer substantial and continuing financial loss if strip mining is to continue. The legal decision pointed out that land used for agricultural purposes may be worth only $250 as contrasted to $5,000 an acre for strip mining. Chillicothe's Dusty Roads Irk Housewives CHILLICOTHE, 111. Ifl —"Ashes to ashes — dust to dust — if the city won't act, I guess we must," say Chillicothe's dust • covered housewives. Lady pickets, bearing signs with such legends, are blockading a street on the north side of Chilli cothe, because, they said, they can't stand the clouds of dust swirling across a recently graveled road. Between 30 and 40 women who live in a three-block area set up the blockade Thursday — an obstruction consisting of baby buggies, velocipedes, parked automobiles and bicycles. They say they'll continue picketing until the city gives them some relief from the dust they claim is ruining their home furnishings and their tempers. A spokesman for the women said they put the blame on the city administration and the S. M .I H. Construction Co., which has a contract to blacktop the road. She said the company sent a water truck to sprinkle the road Thurs day, but the women wouldn't let it pass. "But, we're sick of dust and we don't want water. We want oil," she said. UN Swings to Latins 9 Plan For Morocco UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (UP)— The United Nations main Political Committee was expected to vote down today an Arab-Asian demand for immediate action in France's dispute with Morocco. The 60-nation committee was expected to adopt instead a milder proposal of Latin-American origin. The resolution sponsored by the 15-nation Afro-Asian bloc calls for immediate lifting of martial law in Morocco, the establishment of "democratic institutions," the holding of free elections and the setting of a five-year deadline for Moroc can independence. However, Bolivia was expected to present a resolution that would strike out the operative parts of the Afro-Asian measure, retaining as its only major section an observation that last year's assembly recommendation in the French Moroccan dispute had not been im plemented. Last year's measure simply called upon France and Morocco to conduct negotiations in a constructive manner and to take steps to ensure the realization of Moroccan independence and sovereignty. Engineer Orders Crew to Leap; He Dies in Wreck DECATUR, 111 (IP)—An engineer told four crewmen to jump to safety and then rode to his death trying to avert a railroad wreck Thursday night. Engineer John Paul Bolin, 49, Decatur, was killed when his locomotive smashed into the caboose of a switching freight train at Casner, about seven miles east of here. His four crewmen all jumped seconds before the crash and escaped injury. Sheriff David M. Peters of Macon County said Bolin, driving Westbound Baltimore and Ohio freight train No. 922 from Indianapolis, apparently saw the second freight ahead as he rounded a curve. The other train had stopped to switch some cars onto a spur. Grave Search Fails to Yield Marsh's Body KANSAS CITY W — The lime- filled grave of kidnap victim Bobby Greenlease was reopened today, but officers found nothing to indicate another body had been buried there. John Downs, Buchanan County prosecutor, ordered the grave reopened "just on an off-chance" that Thomas Marsh's body might be there. Cites Tax Revenue The county declared that the mining worth is a one-time valuation, producing only one coal harvest, whereas farming produces a crop every year. County tax revenue also would decline with farm land dropping to tax valuation of only about five dollars an acre after it had been stripped for coal. Also sought by the county petition is a clear ruling by the court as to strip-mining operations in general in the county. The court is asked to specifically state whether the zoning ordinance Is void only as to land which already is in use for strip mining. 860 Acres Involved Marsh Absolved Carl Austin Hall, who confessed kidnaping and slaying 6-year-old Bobby, first said the child was shot to death by Marsh. Later he absolved Marsh, saying he alone shot the boy. Officials have speculated that the missing Marsh, an ex-convict, also had been killed. Held in the Jackson County Jail here with. Hall is Mrs. Bonnie Brown Heady. Bobby's ,body was buried in the back yard of her St. Joseph, Mo., home. The court is asked to decide whether Midland may mine 860 acres in restricted districts of Victoria and Truro Townships. The land has been drilled and mapped and has railroad layouts, all in preparation for mining. Non-conforming use Is a means by which owners of property may gain exception from a zoning restriction which is imposed after the use of >the property was established. The legal point, according to Attorney Barash, in the Victoria and Truro properties is whether company ownership and mining preparation of the land prior to the passage of the zoning ordinance could constitute a non-conforming exception. Commission OKs Crossing Devices A United Press dispatch today from Springfield reports that the Illinois Commerce Commission has granted the petition of the Santa Fe Railway Co. for the installation of flashers at the crossings at Main, Henderson and Academy streets in Galesburg. These crossings are presently protected by flashers and when the City Council some weeks ago adopted a resolution approving the company's request, it was indicated that the change will involve protective devices to be operated automatically and replace the existing manual operation.
