Even Sparkler* Barred By Illinois Law The Fourth of July is * long way off—two and a half months—but the question of illegal discharge of fireworks is already in the news. The attorney general of lllino : s has given an opinion that Illinois law forbids the sale of sparklers. Alton was a pioneer among Illinois cities in banning the sale and discharge of fireworks in^thc s^atc except for authorized public displays. The state followed some years later with a similar ban. But the sale of sparklers continued, and youngsters had their fun with the sparklers before and on the Fourth. No one seemed to mind the sparklers rather most folks enjoyed watching the youngster have fun. Now Attorney General Castle has advised loca law enforcement officers that sale of sparklers also is illegal in Illinois. Answering a request of the Macon County state's attorney for an opinion, Castle said the 1953 General Assembly's fireworks act outlawed the sale of sparklers. Castle ruled that the only exceptions to tin- bar on sale and use of fireworks -are authori/ed public displays, wholesale selling, .sales for shipment outside the state, or use of fireworks by railroads or other specified occupations. That settles it—so far as the law is concerned. Our legislators, in the opinion of the attorney general, went all the way in banning lircworks. Would that our reprcicnutivcs at Springfield would be as thorough in all their enactments. We'll miss the sparklers—but are willing to give them up to be rid of the noi.scmakcrs and dangerous fireworks.

What he says and does here on that day regarding the McAdams highway's future may RO » ong way in influencing the site board's selection.

Q. Is "theatre" or "theater" the correct American spelling of this word? M. L. Y. A. Although many dictionaries prefer "theater", It is worth noting thttt the tcatrlcal profession generally uses "theatre" and that this spelling is used by the majoiity of New York playhouses. In a military sense the form "theater" is employed. Q. Why were some western towns called "Jumping - off places?" II. S. P. version. The city was eager to relieve itself of certain obligations. In those days many mouths had to be fed; shelter, clothing, and fuel had to be supplied to many that were indigent. The city passed this responsibility along to the town, too, and, with little challenge! The Town assumed these obligations. Under the able supervision of Louis K. Walter — and his very canable staff—the task given them was accomplished, and all the bills were paid. Now it has been suggested that (he town is not capable of handling its own affairs. That the controls thereof should again be taken over by the city. Before this happens we should he allowed lime lo look into the situation a little further, and, ask ourselves some very imtJorlant questions. Does the city itself really want to re-assume these responsibilities? Is it capable f supplying the services previously administered? Isn't it very doubtful it wants to taKC on any more obligations to be added to theii present ones? How long would it take to make the change-over? How much would it cost the taxpayers? It is assumed that the city government -- as a whole —• would not endorse such a program, added to their many other Richards. Miss Mary Parsons, Miss Helen Berry, Mrs. J. B.

The condition of Mrs. Sophia Demuth, former police matron, was reported critical. Oliver Lawliss, formerly of Alton, and nephew of Justice of the Peace Eddie Lawliss, had enlisted in the air force at an announced age ot five years older than he svas. Later in line for promotion, he was requested to prove his age and submitted his request to St. Patrick's Church, where baptismal records were kept. The record showed him to be 31. The Tailor's local had agreed to a new rule demanded by the merchant tailors to outlaw "blua Mondays." Hereafter, if journeymen tailors failed to report for work .Monday after the holiday he was subject to a fine of a minimum of $5. Plans for the formation here of a Christian Science Society, with the object of early establishment of a church, were put In motion when Mr. and Mrs. James Logwood of St. Louis addressed a gathering of interested persons at th» home of Mr. and Mrs. H.

Walter Sloan, known to favor retaining the teacher, was re-elected to the board over Harry Kellenherger, 76 to 26. Union school district, north of Upper Alton, re-elected R. F. Frerichs as director. The voters informally approved reappointment of the teacher, Miss Anna Holfcird at $40 a month. They also took a vote at suggestion of G. R. Voorhees, president of the board, and endorsed a plan to paint and repair the building. Miss Mary E. Fuller resigned as a member of the local Salvation Army staff on the eve of her marriage to Orvis Wyman. Justice Graham was to pel-form the marriage ceremony.

Also, it would not seem fair to transfer the controls of the town back to the city at. this time. Certain individuals have made an effort to bring this about. It is doubtful that the full support of the city's government would be given lo such a move. More than likely, it: would be the city's attilude that its affairs be handled by the city, and the town's business by its own board, as it has so successfully been carried out these past several years. Judging from the many opin- i o n s I have heard expressed about this matter it is the general consensus that it would be very foolish to get the city and town of Alton into a feud. Seems like most folks feel that help instead of harm should be furnished to both, and, by accepting the support — advise — and suggestions that could be furnished by our citizenry, there are no reasons why both branches of our Municipal Government could not be something to be proud of.

Today, "Cow Town" appears to a northerner to be turning swiftly into an "Auto City" as Walter Rcuther's organizers stop here on labor's long trail southward. After hittins that trail myself for a while, I'm convinced that Reuther and the CIO would like to take Texas as they took Michigan, for this is the new frontier tor labor. Without it, CIO would soon see its strength seep away. And Reuther has no intentjon of letting that happen. In fact, he already is a power along (he miracle miles between Dallas and Fort Worth. If the CIO continues to organize the auto, aircraft and machine shops here as effectively as it has, and if it can fan out from Port Arthur — where it has been picketing nine cafes and restaurants, eight department stores and some jewelry and hardware emporiums for six month's -- CIO will become a political power in the great state balooned," Frances said.

Now industry appears to have hit the trail in earnest, reversing the northward treks of the cotton, cattle and oil magnates. Already the roads around this "Cow Town" of old and on to Dallas give the observer the impression of the plant-lined highways out of Detroit. It's startling to one who for decades has thought of Michigan as the big auto and aircraft center to see this change in the American scene in this Hydrogen Age. There are the huge ultra-modern plants of Genera] Motors and Ford. There are big windowless factories, awaiting the sudden camouflage of new wars, belonging to Chance Vought, Con- vair and Bell Aircraft. Helicopters, jets and gargantuan B-36s stud the grounds. Bell and GM are typical of the mushrooming along these miracle miles. Bell making helicopters in one plant, has two others in operation. Soon enough this corporation, which pulled these works out of Buffalo, will take on a total force of 6,000. General Motors has about 1,000 production workers. 'Soon it will go to 6,000.

But the plant's labor force is in the AFL's sprawling 850,000- in Houston as a significant clue to the CIO's strategy. Recently the Auto Workers moved one of their best organizers into Houston. He concentrated on winning over a small machine shop — one with some 35 workers. This occurred at the Southwestern Gear Works, Inc., to be exact, and the effort seemed out of proportion with the opportunities around Texas. But it did give the Alto Workers a machine shop as the base for further unionization of such plants — and, some believe, a chance to move in on Convair eventually. With the 22,000 to 25.000 Con- vair employes, the CIO r Auto Union would have a base of some 55,000 men. Linked up with the Oil workers and White Collar workers, CIO could launch a statewide drive—on the political as well as the industrial front. It can happen all over Texas. It did at Port Arthur, the oil center where many city officials were from or close to the Oil Workers Union. East may be East and West may be West, but the twain have certainly met here.
