Detroit Gallons for Gluttons If all the beer and liquor sold in Illinois in 194f tvcre put in a big vat and pumped into the Alton water system at the present rate of water consumed, twkientj would not be able to use up the supply for more than a month. The Alton Water Co. pumps an average of 6,000,000 gallons of water a clay to consumers in the city. The total number of gallons of beer and liquor sold in Illinois in 1945 was 200,761.858 gallons. Which all goes to show that Illniois is a dripping wet state. It also goes to show that huge amounts of time and money arc wasted on drinking .and drunkenness. Imagine the gluttony that must have inspired such an enormous consumption of liquor! Returning to the comparison with Alton's water supply, the amount of water that flows through faucets and toilets for more than a month of average use in your home would represent only a portion of the gallons of liquor that could reach all homes and businesses in the city's water system. Picture faucets dripping, bathtubs full, washing tubs full of liquor 5n place of water. " To the gag writer, this imaginary situation would offer a field day for jokes — but to those who will stop and reflect that the comparison is possible, the implications of the imaginative picture are not humorous. It a startling to think of the suffering that so many gallons of alcoholic beverages can cause. When a Man Is a Success Said a man who knew him well, the other day, "I think that there might be an editorial discussion on the subject of when a man is a nieces*, and use Edgar F. Paul as a text. Mr. Paul was not tooting hii own horn, because he wa« a modest man r No one would be able to remember that Mr. Paul ever asserted a claim to distinction because he had been helpful, kind, friendly." But when he died suddenly, there wa» a great outpouring of people to testify to their own grief over having lost such a good friend. A man is successful, even though he may never have risen to dizzy heights of fame, if only he has devoted his life to making other people happy, as did Mr, Pati}. In.hU career as a business man he -was relied upon for a multitude of »ryj«e* and kindly, acts, by people who knew that they need only make known to him their pressing necessity for a friendly act. He was a good citizen, a faithful, consistent church member. In his home, he was a beloved husband and parent who deserved and got the perfect respect of members of his fine family. He did not seem to find it hard to do things that would insure the affection and full respect of those who knew him socially, in business or in a religious way. While attending to his own business he could find much time to help other! who needed someone to share their burdens and responsibilities. He had lived * life that was closed with a beautiful suddenness, as he would want it to be. Yes, We're Dreaming February is with us, and the thoughts of some of the more optimistic will turn to spring, whatever the antics of the groundhog. February has but 28 days, and they will speed swiftly, bringing March which will introduce spring. Spring, this year, will arrive at 1:33 a. m., on March 21, so spring is only seven weeks away. But, lest your hopes rise too high, your optimism become too great, be it remembered that only six weeks of winter have elapsed and that we have in store more winter time than we have experienced. And, further, to destroy hopes, winter's waning days often are more severe than its early days; and early spring, the calendar to the contrary notwithstanding, usually displays winter-like attributes — as witness the waning days of last fall when J. Frost arrived far ahead of schedule. But, thoughts of the realities never quite down the hopes of those who love the new life of spring. Of course, the dawn of February means winter is not half-gone; but February is the shortest of months, and whatever it offers, and no matter how unkind March may be, we're on our way to spring; and, anyhow, you can't blame a guy for dreaming — of spring and the outdoors. February 4 t 1921 A pre-Valentlne's Day feature story, entitled "What. Is Love?" quoted six persons, mostly writers, presumably on the theory that they should know. Susan Glaspell asserted that "Love Is a misunderstanding between a man and a woman—started by the man." Floyd Dell, writer, and one of the group of writer? and artists who had caused Greenwich Village to become a stench in the nostril)* of the righteous, dodged the question and delivered an essay on the economic condition of women. Harry Kemp also dodged the main question, but opined that a wc,m,in approached love with her eyes open and dismissed it with her eyes shut A man, accord- Ing to philosopher Kemp, did Just the opposite. Reduction in the number of dishonorable military discharges and a general scaling' down of punishments meted out by courts martials was expected to result from an executive order issued as the result of popular demand on the White House to alleviate the suffering of those who had met the army's high-handed brand of justice during the war. Col. C. A. Kreger, acting judge advocate, was squirming in an effort to explain how so many men had been given long prison terms In the-first place. He contended that army punishments were based on civilian custom, sentences being established after a survey of state laws. Asa Taylor Hutchinson, glassblower at Illinois Glass Co. plant for 20 years, died. Hnrry L. Chapman, who for several years had managed Homeridge Farm near Jerseyvllle, opened a law office In the Chapman building, Jerseyville. Stockholders of the Jersey Mercantile Co. elected the following directors: Frank F. Loellke, Fred W. Giers, William Gamerdlnger, Rolla Rhine and Miss Harriet Pogue. The bottom was falling out of war-time prices and wages. The Ford Motor Co. announced a re- ductlqn in price of the Fordson tractor from $970 to $625, effective Immediately. Even the most heavily unionized industries were reducing wages, with consent of the unions. New York clothing workers took a 30 percent wage reduction; Atlanta, Ga., railway workers took a 25 percent drop; iron workers at Reading, 'Pa., took a 25 percent reduction. J. A. Glberson said that the Alton Automobile Club had voted to pay a reward of $1 per member for the arrest and conviction of any person stealing a member's. car. There were more than 300 members. It was announced that former Mayor Faulstich would manage the campaign of Jerry Callaghan, who planned to run for mayor at the next election. E. R. Halbert, fireman for the Big Four Railroad, was injured when he.fell from the cab of an engine at East Alton. Miss Martha A. Price of Jerseyvllle and Rollle Rettenhaus of Wood River were married et the office of Justice of the Peace Lessner. John L. Lewis was re-elected president of United Mine Workers of America. E. Carroll, carpenter at Wood River Standard Oil refinery, sustained a fractured kneecap when he fell whiie running to catch a street oar. It was announced that all "hells" <*nd<l'damns," not to mention more advanced degrees of expressive language, would be censored from the testimony given the congressional war Investigating committee by Charles G. Dawes, Pershlng's former supply chief, before the testimony was sent to the printer. * Congress Provoked By Labor Leaders, Lawrence Asserts By DAVID LA WHENCE. WASHINGTON, Feb. 4.—The bill sponsored by Representative Csfoe of South Dakota, Republican, to govern labor disputes Is an extreme Piece of legislation. Many of Its provisions have no business being given to the Federal Government to enforce. But labor union leaders have provoked the Congress and have resorted to so many abuses of their privileged position that the reaction which has set In to labor's special privileges is .understandable. So long as the Supreme Court of the United States has said that anything which affects interstate commerce comes within the power of Congress to legislate, the so- called police power hitherto vested in the several states will not be depended upon alone to deal with acts of violence such as now are flagrantly being sanctioned by union leaders. Any organization which attempts to achieve by open lawlessness the fulfillment of Its economic demands must inevitably pay the penalty of facing extreme legislation by which the Federal Government enters where the authority Of the states breaks down. There has been little effort made by the larger unions to do away with Illegal picketing or palpable acts of coercion at the factory gates where strikes are In progress. That is why the famous La Guardia-Norris anti-Injunction law, which has rightly protected labor so long against mischievous tactics by management's lawyers, stands In peril today. The House of Representatives is being asked through the Case bill to prevent the anti- injunction statute from shielding those-whose perpetrate acts of violence or coercion. The whole temper in which the Congress Is considering labor legislation is unfortunate and regrettable. Every single step, on the other hand, which the Congress has .tried to take since the Wagner law was passed- in 1935 has been unwisely opposed by labor union leaders. Being able to squelch legislation In committee or on the floor because it has had ample political power for the last ten years, labor unions now have overreached themselves In their tactics to the point where legitimate demands of labor are being lost sight of in a melee of criticism and resentment. The labor unions may succeed In toning down the Case bill or similar measures but the industrial crisis which the nation faces will not be settled until there is a more objective approach on the part of .the union leadership of today toward the" nefessaryi SIDE GLANCES com, mtvrm* tntnet, me.

The Lumber Scarcity Lumber scarcity at the present 1 forbids many lines of construction to be undertaken. Lumber dealers have lictle lumber in stock and priorities limit the sales of what little is available. But is is understood that the armed forces of the United States have in their possession large quantities of unused lumber, besides many a building, which it would seem could best be devoted to being disposed of now, when the need for building material is greatest. With a steadily decreasing number of men in the armed forces it seems that the need for buildings to , house them should be diniinishing in proportion. Later on those buildings will have to be disposed of, "tut by that time there might not be the need for the lumber there is seen on every hand today. It was not so long ago the general public was being compelled to avoid hoarding of critical supplies of every kind.

N«iwn, preiident, National Retail February 4, 1896 Local dealers in natural Ice had almost abandoned hope of an ice crop, and were beginning to consider where they could contract for shipments to meet customers' needs in the coming summer.'Some were obtaining quotations from points in Iowa and Minnesota. Were natural Ice shipped from such distant points, they said, a price increase would be necessary. It was estimated that 10 days of continuous cold weather would be needed to form Ice sufficiently thick for profitable cutting, and with Groundhog Day already passed, It appeared unlikely such an extended heavy'freeze would materialize. Hundreds of Altonians who normally gained mid-winter employment in the ice fields were feeling the pinch of losing this source of Income. Luer Bros, were filling the glass works' ice-house with artificial, ice, and were having plans drawn for a storage-house at their own premises. Luer's ice had been In growing demand in competition with natural ice. Hon. Joseph Brown, who had served as mayor both of Alton and St. Louis, was to lecture here in Temple Theater on Feb. 18 for benefit of the Lovejoy monument fund, giving "Early Reminiscences of Alton." He was to recount incidents of the martyrdom of Lovejoy, the Lincoln-Shields duel, Lincoln- Douglas debate, and give sketches of noted Altonians in the period when the city was being founded, Brown, who was mayor of Alton in, 1856 and 1857, last had spoken here at opening of the railroad bridge over the Mississippi. Will Perrln had severed connection with the Sentinel-Democrat as bookkeeper to take a similar position with Pen-in & Smith, St. Louis. Illinois Central obtained an inlet to St. Louis by lease of the Cairo Short Line. Mrs. Kate E. Challacombe suffered a skull fracture, in a fall down the cellar steps at her State street home. She lay unconscious two hours before being found. Successful bidders on an addition that was almost to double the bed capacity of St. Joseph's Hospital were Vincent Wardein, Hope & Ash, Peter Reyland, Anthls & Schaffer, Joseph Hefner, Chris Eckhard, and Nixon & Grossman. Architect Pfelffenberger estimated the cost of the addition would be about $7000 without furnishings. Bids also were opened on a $2200 dwelling on East Second for Mrs. Joseph Bund and contracts were awarded to John Weld, T. Hagen, W. Stanforth, Sam Hart, Christ Eckhard, and Joseph Hefner NORTH ALTON.—E. J. Plckard, proprietor or* the Yuma, Colo., Pioneer, was visiting his parents. G. L. Glassbrenner had resigned as street commissioner. Leo Glassbrenner had taken employment as foreman at the Stunton livery stable. Fred Hoff- m els ter served as chairman In absence of Village President Clifford from the board of trustees' meeting. Improvement of a street in the ''Oklahoma" section was dUcuwed. F. L. Pates demonstrated a fire extinguisher he urged be purchased tor the town hall. The exchange of the city's west end hose house site for the Rodemeyer property of Mrs. Q, F. Roe- nlcke, adjacent to Stanton's livery stable, at State and Wall, waa completed, changes that must be made in the labor statutes. The public interest demands that strikes and lockouts be prohibited until there is a period for fact- finding and that strikes in public utilities and other facilities necessary to the maintenance of health and safety be limited. If the labor politicians oppose this natural trend they will only keep the situation boiling for months to come and the consequence, may yet be a depression of far greater intensity than the American people have ever encountered. The economic system is already losing millions of dollars of production every day and millions of dollars of purchasing power. This is not merely because there is a disagreement on wages. The wage issue is the lesser of the two major problems that face the parties to the disputes. The more perplexing issue is the growing power of the unions to dominate state courts, state police systems and city police units so that protection for life and property has been neglected. Likewise, the employer groups are fearful that economic power exercised against them through the sanctions of the Wagner Act has reached the point where management cannot afford to make wage concessions unless ironclad guarantees against wildcat strikes and inside-union conspiracies that produce such work stoppages are given. The demand that both sides in a labor dispute abide by contracts and that the powers of management over production be not Interfered with has grown to the point where many employers are in a bitter frame of mind, ready to Incur severe losses until something is done to equalize the uneven operation of collective bargaining laws and other federal stat- Wyatt's battle was over housing, now considered the tightest need in the civilian economy. The cone wasvheld in the President's and piesent>eref Trtiman himself, Reconverter John Snyder, Press Secretary Charlie Ross, Private Adviser George Allen, and Wilson Wyatt. Wyatt brought with him a 12- page memo giving his recommendations regarding the housing shortage. It was a forthright, all-embracing program. Instead of only 400,000 houses a year (the limit private builders say .they can build,) he called for around 3,000,000 houses in two years. The program also proposed: 1. The stopping of all non-essential building. This meant cracking down on new night clubs and most new office buildings. 2. Immediate restoration of L- 41. This is the order, suspended by John Snyder, which removes controls from building materials. Wyatt's plan is to place all buiV- ing materials on a priority basis. 3.. Give rubsidies for low-cost houses up to 25 percent — if necessary. Wyatt did not believe, however, that many subsidies would be necessary after builders got in.o mass prcduction. 4. Convert army camps into housing by removing units which are suitable for civilian use. 000, .and give the largest share of building materials to those putting up $5000 houses. . Finally, Wyatt called for a tremendous use of fabricated materials as the quickest way to build houses. Snyder Says No The program hit Reconverter Snyder like a ton of bricks. He was in favor of none of it. George Allen also was negative, though not as much, so as Snyder. "I'm not sure you can rush in with, this before you've cleared it on Capitol Hili; anct also with labor and the real estate boys," Allen said. "There are a million bills on the Hill dealing with housing, including the Patman bill'and the Wagner-Ellender bill. Let's look things over carefully." However, Allen added: "Thank God someone has come in with an idea." President Truman, on the other hand, was favorable, though he A. pital Time spent in a is the inactive utes that tend to coerce the workers into blind obedience to the threats of a few leaders. It may well be that the union labor politicians will be able again to weaken the proposed legislation and even to kill It or possibly to assure a veto by President Truman. But this will not solve America's labor problems or bring reconversion and full employment. The need for self restraint on the side of labor as well as management has never been more clearly demonstrated than In the present industrial crisis.

Snyder's initial argument that press reaction to such a program would be bad. This question was referred to press secretary Charlie Ross, who has spent 40 years as a newsman. Ross disagreed, said, newspaper comment would be excellent. He endorsed the Wyatt program heartily. Snyder also objected on the ground ttiat people didn't like going back to wartime restrictions. But Wyatt disagreed. "Look at the public's endorsement of the OPA when it replaced price ceilings on citrus fruits," he said. "We have to keep our sights high," the hard-hitting ex-mayor of Louisville insisted. "Unless you do, we'll come' through with no program at all." After a long discussion, it was finally decided to postpone the program until Wyatt could straighten out some of his differences with Snyder and Civilian Products Administrator Jack Small. In the end, President Truman gave this emphatic endorsement of Wyatt's general ideas. "As I told you before, I want no little plan," he said. Odds are that Wyatt will win out with most of his program. Capital Chaff ' Lt. Cmdr. Clark Clifford, a White House naval aid, is a cousin of Annamary Dickey, the Metropolitan opera star. . .

Pattern's Grave Secretary of War Patterson, stopping at Frankfurt, Germany, the other day, expressed his desire to go to. the American cemetery at Hamm, Luxembourg, to lay a wreath on Gen. Patton's grave. His pilot, however, reported, that bad weather precluded flying. The officer handling railroad transportation also recommended against using the train, since it would have to pass through the French zone, necessitating a change of crew and a long delay, running perhaps into hours. Finally, the motor officer urged Patterson not to drive since the roads were coyered with sleet and ice. All of which exasperated the, secretary of war. v "If Patton were alive," he said, "he would not be stopped tf*he thought it was his duty to go to Hamm. Get a car and we will drive.to Hamm at once."' , The trip of about 120 miles packed Into it two near-tragedies. The first time, the car skidded, hit the gates at a railroad qross- Ing, crashed througtt and stalled on the track. The second time, in a dense fog, a truck driven by a French soldier collided with one of Patterson's cars and turned it over. No one was hurt. The party crowded into one car and went on.
