PAGE POUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, JULY 9, 1960 Editorial Timely Proi-aullon IVoodod Di*cowie* made bv the Mayor's Traffic S«fety Commission in its first safftv lane program last month may well have provided incentive for » spread of trie movement. Forty six per cent of the 1.0 <9 vehicles tested, says a numm.irv of the result, wcrr below the safety sticker standard. And. reasons Krith .lone*, general chairman of the commission, the cars actually tested may trell have been tlie of the crop in Alton. For, Jones points out. .in owner who knew his car had a defect, or doubted it would pass the test, would naturally be hesitant to submit it to the safety lane. One industry, reports Jones, already has inquired about possibility of establishing an inspection lane at its employes' parking lot. It's not surprising that 251 cars should have, deficient steering mechanisms, because many such deficiencies occur so gradually that the constant driver naturally develops a toleration for them. But 86 with defective front lights and 130 with inoperative rear lights is little short of amazing. It indicates the need for more frequent checks by everyone. The reports certainly showed the need for more frequent and broader checkups. And it should overcome any driver's overconfidence in his own car and cause him to get it checked.

But he is due congratulations for his latest recognition by the oil industry. Announcement has been made that he will assume charge of 12 midwestern refineries under a pending reorganization of Standard of Indiana and two of its subsidiaries. For his services with the Community Chest, the Boy Scouts, the Wood River Township Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Alton Association of Commerce, and other local organizations we can and should say to both Mr. Butterworth and to Standard Oil: "Thank you."

Thursday the United States filed a sharp protest with Austria for another attack Khrushchev made on this country and President Eisenhower during a visit there. Again the indication was that Washington was running short on patience. That we may have to take quick stock of this new turn in policy toward smaller nations is shown clearly by Mexico's reaction to our sugar quota action in Cuba.

Fred Miller has made his "acceptance" speech and has outlined his policy on foreign affairs. They sound fine to me. I'd like to ask his stand, though, on the re-armament of Germany. We in America know that the next time Germany rolls a dreaded blitz into a neighbor country it won't be done in order to conquer the world. For democracy has worked better in West Germany than it has in many other free world nations. The German people are now steeped in capitalistic democracy and stand allied with us against Marxism. It would indeed be a 25 to 30 year setback for Moscow if the Germany would go all out as we know she can and build an armed force like she did before. Yet, the agonizing, shameful quilt of Nazism is still i n the German's sorrowful minds. This, and this only, is the thing that keeps Germany from developing the army we know it could. In one way it can be relieving; in another, regrettable. We Americans should Forum Writers, Note Writers namon muat be published with letters to the Reader* Forum.

Tc seek contempt proceedings before the State Supreme Court on the theory that anyone practicing law without a license would be acting without lawful authority and In vlblatlon of regulations of the court licensing attorneys.

Others In the camping party, all from the Melville-Clifton area, were Benton and Harry Holiday, Joseph and Charles Stiritz, Felix Benton, and Fred Lawless. Engineer B. B. Stakemlller had completed plan* and specifications for hard-surfacing of Rock Spring Park driveways with crushed stone, and the Park Commission had directed him to call for bids.
