Whatever is decided upon should not be neglected for various excuses as it has been in the past. The Pepartment of Public Works should prepare its survey on the basis of restoring th« building to lasting condition — if that is posii- ble. The public would like to «e an estimate — perhaps from several sources — on the con of this work as compared to cost of a new ho« house before a decision is reached. If the building can be strengthened and repaired to lengthen its life additional years, then by all means that must be done. One of the difficulties is that the cry of *'wolf" has been heard entirely too often about the how house's condition.

But perhaps the most significant is the discovery that the steel strike waa far more damaging to the,American economy than was realized either by the unions or the com* panics involved.

Mayor P. W. Day Wednesday night told Alton's newly-reappointed representative on the airport authority what he thought that body should do about a problem there. The Mayor told Richard E. Rook, whom he returned to the authority at Wednesday night's City Council meeting, that he thought the extended hard surfaced runway should be carried to 5,000 feet as a means of opening the port for later instrument landings. Mr. Day certainly is in position to have learned what industry of the area thinks about the port. He has been connected with one of the 1 district'* largest companies for many years, and hai close contact with the men who know its problems. His repeated complaint was that the industries who do or could use the port for laftding executive type planes charge that they can't use it consistently because it lacks bad weather landing facilities. Such a complaint should be respected because the industries of the area are paying a pretty heavy share of the airport's costs. More important, however, is that the mayor of'a city within the airport district, and who has authority to appoint one member of the authority's board as a representative of the municipality, has seen fit to speak for the community. their plants and unemployment has been increased, other companies are finding themselves in the midst of a profit squeeze.

But he did speak. And he is to be commended for letting folks recdgntze one way they can communicate with the authority. Cheers for Brains It was fitting Wednesday night that scholarship should be recognized at a center where crowds more frequently assemble to witness)to the point where savings could physical feats. A total of 152 members of Alton Senior High School's, huge June graduating class were recognized for their accomplishments in the scholarship department during commencement activities. As chance would have it, quite a few of them also had been known to perform athletically, too, either on that field or on the adjoining gymnasium floor, thereby proving that brains and brawn, like brains and beauty, do mix a lot more frequently than the old saw gives them credit for. While it will be some time before the public is likely to fill this stadium to hear the debate squad perform, or witness a student play presented from the band shell, at least it did crowd in closely to see this one major event of the year in the brains department, and to applaud those who had been excelling. It has also jammed this gym for pass music events. and 5O Yean Ago June 10> 193$ Governor Henry Homer, nationally regarded M an authority on Abraham Lincoln, centered W« commencement address at Western Military Academy on him. He took his cue from the fact that Alton had been the scene of the last great debate between Lincoln and Douglas. Miss Margaret Huebher received the Unl« verslty of Illinois scholarship during graduation program at Shurtieff College. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward G. Huebner of 1820 Clawson St., Miss Huebner was awarded the Davison Cup for woman students whose participation had done the most to advance the social, literary, and religious life of the school; and the Osborn medal, as graduate with the highest average of scholarship, with at least three yeais residency at the college. She also had been crowned spring festival queen. Twenty-five members of the East and West Side Planning Commission convened in Alton. It was headed by E. 3. Russel, chairman of the St. Louis Plan Board, and Harland Bartholomew, plan engineer for the St. Louis Plan Board and one of the directors of the commission. In meeting at Marquette Park, the men studied maps for layout of improvement for proposed recreational uses of both sides of Alton lake to be created by the federal dam here.

A Little Fresh Air Blows in While some Democrats may be licking their chops over the storm being stirred up by New York Governor Rockefeller over the Nixon candidacy, it appears more likely the Republican party will benefit. Vice President Nixon's hands may well be tie*!, on ,' ssues in a few fie ' ds> P art ' cular 'y in cer " tain phases of the international situation. ftowever, the sparring ahead of the national Republican convention cannot help but attract greater attention to it. Even though the nomination, itself, may turn out to be a cinch, the competitive element can well bring out airing of various sides of issues which can point up the platform eventual- ly formulated by the convention. One of the weaknesses of the Republican Party over the recent years has been its lack of inner fire. The Republican who differs too often crawls over in his corner and sulks. He isn't even a gentleman about it. A gentleman would frankly bring his differences of opinion — if he were sincere about them — into the open. This Governor Rockefeller has done. His governmental trends in New York State indicate his sincere support for some of the ideals he has brought into his discussions. The Republican Party should have a chance to discuss them thoroughly. The Allen-Scott Report Stevenson Getting Big Rush WASHINGTON — Adlai Stevenson is getting a big rush from the two front runners in the Democratic Presidential race. Sens. Lyndon Johnson and John Kennedy are very eager to win the backing of the 1952-56 standarc bearer, but so far they have had no luck: He has told both he is "endorsing no one before the con vention." ^ The former Illinois governor turned Kennedy down despite the fact that William Blair, Stevenson's law partner, favors the New Eng lander and is boosting him. The two candidates made their pleas to Stevenson personally Johnson talked to him May 15 in Washington. Kennedy had break fast with Stevenson at his Liberty ville, III., farm on May 21. Tennessee backers of Johnson al so are vigorously seeking a decla ration from Sen. Estes Kefauver running mate with Stevenson in 1936. But, like the latter, Kefauver is shying away from publicly an noundng a preference before the Los Angeles convention!

KM hot presidential scramble. ] Stevenson's wait-until-t h e-convention stand is quite satisfactory to Johnson. If Stevenson sticks by that, the Texan has a lot to gain. So long as Stevenson is even remotely a nomination possibility, his ardent partisans won't switch to anyone else. Illustrative of this is the disclosure of the Madison, Wis., Capital Times that four Humphrey delegates "are ready to vote for Stevenson." In seeking Stevenson's endorsement, Kennedy stressed that he had won the backing of Gov. Mennen Williams and the bulk of Michigan's 52 delegates; also this would shortly be announced. Kennedy made no bones he felt an endorsement by Stevenson would virtually ensure his nomination on the first ballot. "It's the one big breakthrough I need, Governor," Kennedy urged. But, while friendly and cordial, Stevenson refused to budge. "I have taken the position that I will not come out for anyone before the convention," he said, "and 1 still think that's the best course to pursue." When Kennedy suggested he talk to him again, after Williams' endorsement, Stevenson readily But so far he had not the way out both as National Chairman and Indiana National Committeeman, but he still hopes to lane a top spot in the fall campaign. The big question is — who with? Mayor Robert Wagner will defi nitely head New York's 115 vote delegation — largest at the convention. This has been secretly decid ed by state party leaders, and both Carmine DeSapio, Tammany chie and National Committeeman, am former Governor Harriman have been told that. Neal Roach, former Nationa Committee official, is joining the campaign stuff of Senator Johnson Roach will concentrate on setting up the Texan's convention floor or ganization, a crucially Importan factor. A sizzling three-way fight has developed for the Democratic nomination to succeed Sen. Theo dore Green, 93-year-old Rhode Is lander who is voluntarily retiring agreed. changed his mind about not declaring for any candidate. A Stevenson intimate, asked if this means he is still in the race despite his repeated disclaimers, replied smilingly, "Well, he can, be made to offset the Increased costs. Up to date, this has not materialized and it doesn't look to me as though it is going to materialize." 'Will there be a price increase?" the writer asked. "Well, we will have to just wait and bide our time. Since we have to give a wage increase in December, and since the profit squeeze that we are encountering now is so severe, I don't see how we can stay in business without a price increase." Discussing the factors that are upsetting the steel industry, including foreign competition, one steel expert pointed out: "All during the strike, we were receiving reports that foreign companies would not accept bus- ness except over a period of ;wo or three years hey would not furnish steel for a short time. So I am sure here were some long-term commitments made, and this is hav- ng an impact right now. "Then there is the problem of ubstitutes. Some users of steel ound that when they could not ;et steel, they could use substi- utes and do a reasonably good ob, perhaps even cheaper. It is not known the extent to which hese substitutes have made an nroad on the market for steel." Perhaps the biggest single factor in the change that has occurred in the steel industry is in relation to inventories. Referring to the accumulation of large inventories prior to the strike, a it eel expert said: "The inventory situation raised us in two respects. The users had more steel during the trike than we thought. Then, when we started up under the Taft-Hartley injunction, the orders poured in and we started off with a bang. Because we had increased our capacity, we got out more steel quicker than ever before in our history, and us ers bought more than ever. When the settlement came Reader 9 * Forum Adding Life to Years The federal government recognizes the 16 million people over sixty-five as a great political force. They have come to realize that Grandpa doesn't want to sit in a rocker any longer. Medical science has added years to life. Now we, as community workers, must add life to years. One fourth of all people, since the World began, who lived to be 70 years of age or over, are living today. Incredible! With these thoughts in mind, perhaps my concern for the older people will take on a new light. We have a committee in Alton working on the problems of the aged. We have individuals deeply interested in these problems. What we need at this point is a few more 'over 60" persons who want to help solve some of these problems —problems concerning inadequate Income, inadequate housing, planned leisure time activities, etc. We need help in planning the best way to use the great resources of experience and ability which now lies dormant. Belleville has a Senior Citizens Forum Writes, Note Writers names must be published with letters to the Readers Forum. Letters should be concise and legible. All are subject to condensation. Club of 843 members! The club is only nine months old. The community is proud of this club and works with this group that is a community asset. We too, could organize in a big way in Alton and made the groups an asset to our community. Those over 60 may inquire at the Y.W.C.A. for full details on our June 17 program. Especially to those who have too much spare time, I urge attendance at this meeting that will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and which will include speakers, skits, workshops, and a chuck-wagon dinner. This one day meeting is sponsored by the Senior Citizen Club. IRENE LOGSDON, Adult Program Director, Y.W.C.A. The Other Choice It pains a lot of us no end to read a letter in the Forum June 1 in which a Harvard student charges our government with "blithely teetering on the precipice of destruction." The letter further states "I, for one, feel no compunction to disregard the lack of leadership shown by the President." It seems to me that this is exactly what the students in Japan are doing today, and it's a sorry spectacle. Our Harvard boy wants a change in our foreign policy. He doesn't say what, how, or when — just a change. This is an old familiar cry of all politicians. The only "change" I can see is to pacify and pfacate the butcher of the Ukraine. The studen^ says three stevenson is tne onl y qualified. I months later, the buyers of steel figured they were safe for two and a half yeara and that we had plenty of capacity to produce, so they stopped buying right away. "Today they are cutting their inventories back not only to where' they used to have them, but far lower than they used to maintain. This is because, with the introduction of new electronic computing machines, -the US- ITS can keep a more accurate record of their inventories and get along with much less. In other words, they "can place an order with us and get it in 48 hours. It is the steel companies who are carrying the inventories to- Hot after the prize are Howard day, and not the customer.

McGrath backers are claiming Truman has offered tu campaign for him, notwithstanding also suggest Drew Pearson as his running mate, with Dave Garraway as press secretary, and that alleged Hollywood iunnyman who rushed up and bussed Mr. Khrushchev on the check as the Secretary of State. Then we could'fill up the rest of the cabinet with star gazing impetuous students, and all start praying. Not for me. I don't want that kind of a change. I'll "stick with Dick". The administration's critics cannot find fault with out economy. We have no boom and bust, just i sound and healthy forward march. So they fall back on that timeworn, hackneyed phrase "The mess in Washington." Well, there are still quite a few of us non-college oldsters around, of a not-yet obsolete generation, who remember a lot of "messes" of two former administrations. We are not saying that students shouldn't be heard. They will be the guardians of whatever free world we will have tomorrow. But when they behave as those immature, rioting students in Japan, it's time someone set a brake. If I was giving advice, I'd say "Be temperate, Sonny.

The saleman assured him everything was in readiness. "Does it have any. gas in it?" Bottenfield had asked. The salesman reached in and flipped the ignition switch.

As laid out, the walk was to have a 15 per cent slope—a drop of almost three feet from the base of the retaining wall to the curb. The construction engineer said the slant could not be changed. Engineer Long said it must be modified. And thus far an Irre- slstable force had met an immoveable situation.
