ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, JULY 11, Editorial Problems for the Convention fo**ibi!it» of *n eirly nomination of Sen. John Kennedy in the Democrat national contention which opened today poses a question: I* the day of the big-time behind-the-scenes political leader done for? 3ome observers will riw «p with a "yes." And they'!! have i strong argument. 1*0f, to all intents and purposes, Sen. Kennedy Ins gone completely over the heads of these leaders in his direct appeal to the voters in primaries. He has, through these primaries, apparently demonstrated his vote attracting power. And this has meant much in whatever strength he demonstrates at Los Angeles. Surface appearances are that whatever power h« accumulated came from the people, themselves. Yet ill even his campaign* for primary votes, Sen. Kennedy had to work through the local organizations if for no other purpose than to arrange his campaign schedules. These may not have been the old-line elected organizations. But I organi/ation had to be there. ! The delegates at Los Angeles still must judge whether the votes he received in the primaries ] are an indication of what he can draw in No! vember. More important, they should be called ; upon to judge whether he is of real Presidential calibre—or whether, as former President Harry 5. Truman suggested, they must call upon a man of greater seasoning. The Reward of Cooperation If no further obstacles are encountered, Alton water users soon should learn what it rneans to have close cooperation of their city with industry. v The joint fight against Alton Water Co.'s 47\'2 per cent raise is estimated to involve $500,000, now ordered refunded to the consumers. While a large part of this is bound to go to the heavier users of water—the industries— private citizens nevertheless should realize comfortable sums on the refund, too, once it is made. Other benefits have been realized, too, through cooperation between industrial and mu-< nicipal leaders here. These, combined with labor and representatives of other* area leadership, obtained action from Governor Stratton several years ago which promises a fine new Levee Berm Beltline to Wood River. This project, in turn, has led to the promise of a new modern system of approaches to the Clark Bridge from the beltline. Involved in this activity was a successful intervention by the Greater Alton Association of Commerce into the Clark Bridge receivership. This dissolved the receivership and ended tolls which would have cost users of the bridge more than .1 million dollars if collection had been, continued. In trade for this savings to bridge users, the receivership turned over to the state division of highways i355,000 net balance. This $35 5,000 now is being used, as an act of Congress authorizing construction of the interstate bridge designated tolls from the span should be employed, to pay for repairs and maintenance of the structure. Our industry and the city, welded together and coordinated often by both the GAAG and the Alton District Manufacturers' Assciation, j have performed many other service's to the community and can be expected to continue doing | so—particularly now that many more of the industries have become part of the municipality. Replacing Our Wrecked Trees Altonians finishing up clearing of wind- wrecked trees from their property may pass on this as premature. And it's true that all types of trees—softwood or hardwood — suffered heavily under Thursday morning's windstorm. Nevertheless, some consideration should be given both now and later to the problem of replacing these lost trees. Certainly a great many of our softwood trees, which folks had hesitated to clear out of the way, have gone now and need replacement. Property owners thus bereaved should resolve to use the best possible judgment in selecting replacements. Particularly where trees can conflict with overhead wires, whether telephone or power, some advice should be sought by property owners in selecting replacements. Edward Scanlon, city forester for Cleveland, during his visit here pointed out the possibility of using trees that are highly onrnamental, can produce good shade, yet are so bred that they will not grow so large as to constitute a threat to these services when planted near them. As Mr. Scanlon pointed out, large forest type trees are welcome where they can be planted judiciously. And we should have many of them. His visit to Alton came at a crucial time- just how crucial no one realized then. Drew Pearson-s Merry-Go-Round Vote Probe May Hur t Kennedy LOS ANGELES — Republican researchers have been doing a job on the prospective Democratic candidates, especially on Jack Kennedy whom they regard as most likely to win in Los Angeles. Significantly they seem quite happy about this prospect, because they have dug up some ammunition which they think will make the young Massachusetts senator a sitting duck next Nobember. Probably the Republicans are too optimistic. Anyway it will pay both Kennedy and the delegates to take a look at the enemy's ammunition. Here is some of it: West Virginia — The'FBI has turned in its report on alleged West Virginia vote-buying by Kennedy forces. Nothing will be done about it until the convention is over, after Vhich a grand jury will be called. Justice department officials aren't talking but seem delighted at the prospects. Pratoed Nixon McCarthyism — Democratic attacks on Nixon tor being a McCarthyite will be counteracted by some interesting quotes by Kennedy in which he praised Nixon in hi* senate race against Congresswoman Helen Gahagan Douglas. GOP researchers have dug up a speech by Kennedy, Nov. 10, 1950, before Harvard students in which be said that he personally was very happy that Mrs. Douglas had just been defeated in California by Richard Nixon; that be liked Joe McCarthy — "he 'believe the Nazi letters will be effective. Here are some of the significant quotes they plan to use: One June 13, 1938 — after Hit ler invaded Austria — German Ambassador Von Dirksen in London wrote State Secretary Wei zacker in Berlin about a long talk with Ambassador Kennedy. "1. Mr. Kennedy opened the conversation," he reported, "by mentioning the question of delivery of helium to Germany; it was extremely regrettable that it had not materialized. The only one opposed to the project had been Secretary of the In terior Ickes. "2. We touched on Kennedy's trip (to the USA) and its purpose he believed above all that the United States would establish friendly relations with Germany. "3. The ambassador then touched upon the Jewish ques. tion and stated that it was naturally of great importance to German-Americans. It was not so much the fact that we wanted to get rid of the Jews that was harmful to us, but rather the loud clamor, with \yhich we accomplished this purpose. He himself understood our Jewish policy completely; he was from Bos. too and there in one golf club and in other clubs, no Jews had been admitted for the past 50 years.

"Mr. Kennedy agreed with my statements wholeheartedly," Von Dirksen reported. "In particular he considered it correct that during the first years of Roosevelt, the United States had been, governed in an authoritarian manner. "I mentioned the poisonous role of the American press . he did not have much to say . and merely mentioned that the press on the east coast was unfortunately predominant, in the formation of public opinion ane it was strongly influenced by the Jews." The German ambassador ended his letter "With many regards and Heil Hitler." When Ambassador Kennedy returned to London from his trip to the USA he conferred with the German envoy again and proposed a trip to Germany. There followed various other letters. Fin ally on Aug. 16, 1938, under Sec retary of State Woermann wrote the German charge D 1 Affaires in London: "We request you to tell Mr. Kennedy in a friendly man ner that his visit to Berlin, for the reason mentioned by him would be very welcome." Nail Push The trip never materialized. The Nazi push into Czechoslovakia a few weeks later arous ed American public opinion to a fever pitch and made it appear to many that war was inevitable. Old Joe, however, didn't think so. As late as Nov. 10, 1940, he told the Boston Globe "Lindberg isn't crazy" about keeping us oul of the war, attacked the lend lease bill and jeered at Mrs Roosevelt. "She bothered us more on jobs lo take care of poor little nobodies .. than all the rest of the people put together. She's ai ways sending me a note to havt some little Susie Glotz to tea at the embassy." After that Joe resigned. (C IWO, Bell Syndicate, Inc.) JUST LJKK FRKK EVERGLADES Fla.

Senator Kennedy has ,the votes to win the nomination, but a majority of the delegates themselves, if they had not been irrevocably committed in advance to the Massachusetts senator, would vote this week for Senator Lyndon Johnson. For the Texas senator is the renl choice of the delegates here. There's no doubt about it. Every conversation with key men in various delegations confirms that appraisal. The feeling is that Johnson could surely win in November and that Kennedy is likely to be beaten by Nixon. Then why doesn't the convention nominate the man of its i choice? That's a good question, land to answer it' one must be familiar with the arts of pre- convention strategy and the influence of organization politics at the local level. Again and again, as one talks to delegates of the independent type, they bemoan the fact that deals and trades inside the states have brought Senator Kennedy his delegate strength. They tell of the early efforts of pro-Kennedy men extending back for four years. It takes time and money to line up a first or second-ballot victory such as Senator Kennedy has in sight. Some estimates are that $5,000,000 has been spent in the Kennedy movement. This means that commitments were made months ago. It shouldn't be inferred that votes were actually bought, but in politics the ambitious are ready to give their support for what they can get out of it later, either through appointments to office or other favors, in federal, state or city governments. Has Solid Commitments The Kennedy strength is incalculably greater than his op ponents ever believed. When any candidate gets within hailing distance of a nomination, only a miracle can prevent his winning it. The "Stop Kennedy" plots have been numerous, but one by one they are proving illusory. For the fact is that the Massachusetts senator has solid commitments. His lieutenants have done their work well. They didn't rely on mere promises of support. They actually selected the delegates in local organizations who would stand by the Massachusetts senator through thick and thin. One hears a good deal, too, about the religious issue. But it is in a form that's beneficial to Senator Kennedy. Thus in Pennsylvania, where Governor Lawrence has been trying to steer a middle course, the pressure from down the line, especially at the local precinct level, is substantial. The governor is a Catholic and had dreaded seeing the religious issue dragged into the campaign, but in the end he will have to succumb to pressure or find himself at odds with large numbers of Catholic voters in his state. That's the way the dilemma of the Pennsylvania governor is described by Pennsylvania sources. Unquestionably the governor would prefer either Lyndon Johnson or Adlai Stevenson. Perhaps last week the governor thought he could keep his delegation neutral, but now he has to release his delegates to vote as they wish. Unit Rule Help In state after state the "unit rule" has been a help to Senator Kennedy. It means that even a thin majority for a certain candidate is enough to compel the vote of the entire delegation to be cast for the candidate desired by the majority. In many of these states the minority are outspoken in favor of Senator Johnson. Notwithstanding the Kennedy strength, it is amazing how the groundswell for Lyndon Johnson has grown in recent weeks. But while a groundswell may be a reflection of how the voters in a given state feel, this does not sway the delegates. They are not responsive to public senti ment. They are responsive only to the leaders and the organizations that brought them here and, in many instances, paid their travel and hotel expenses. The Kennedy build-up of the last few months, including the intensive work done in the primaries on behalf of Senator Kennedy, has paid off. For everyone who has had experience with past political conventions knows what "bandwagon" psychology Is. Most Iqpal politicians want to be found with the winner at the moment of his triumph. They watch a first ballot and, even while the voting is in progress, the switching from "favorite sons" or other candidates becomes a kind of panic. A few decades ago the lute senator Claude Swanson of Virginia drew up a set of maxims fur the guidance of politicians attending national conventions. One piece of wisdom was something to this effect: "Always climb aboard before the last cur leaves the station — never be left behind." ew N- V. Herald Tribute, inc.)

Reader's Forum Not to Be Ignored The statement attributed to Jimmy Roosevelt that there are fewer than 10,000 Communists in this country is hardly reason lo ignore the danger it imposes. Less than five per cent of the Russians are members of the Communist Party, the others fire subject to Communist domination. My opinion that a rabbit can outrun an elephant renders that "comparison by size" is wholly unacceptable and incompatible to my most humble way of reasoning. One of the biggest drives of Moscow and its followers within our midst is precisely the question of civil liberties, according lo the February issue of Political Affairs, a Communist directive document. Gus Hall, Communist Party Leader, USA, reported that Khrushchev had brought into this country a new element of political life, "The masses in motion".'"He (Mr. K) therefore prepared the way for them (meaning American people) on their own initiative to engage in mob violence in the name of civil liberties". On June 5, The Worker, another Communist directive document, quoted Gus Hall: "The New York-San Francisco wave of mass activities has set the pace for the whole country. The midnight peace march through mid-Manhatten (after the mass meeting of the Sane Nuclear Policy Committee, chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt) gave us a feeling that something new had been added. The American people have begun to recapture the spirit of mass action and mass protest". . Moscow has arranged for an era of open belligerence against this country, including widespread mob violence within and without the U.S. against our own nation's representatives. This explains the following resolution that was adopted at the Communist convention: "Defend the Constitution and the BUI of Rights. Abolish the House Un-American Activities Forum Writers, Note Writers name* muM be published with letters to the Readers Forum. letters should be concise and legible. All are subject to condensation. Committee and the Senate Internal Security Committee. Persuade our allies that we hate McCarthyism and cut short the powers of the FBI." We send our boys all over the world to protect other countries against Communist aggression. Does it seem unreasonable that we should expect protection for ourselves as well? We pay high salaries to our Supreme Court judges only to have them explain lo us that a Communist has not committed an act of crime until we have proof that our government has been attacked. • The House Un-American Activities and Senate Internal Security committees are the only means we have of,obtaining facts so that we may authorize legislation for our safety. With all these truths self-evident, Rep. J Roosevelt, (Dem., Calif.) has made another unsuccessful attempt to abolish the House Un-American Committee. Mrs. R. has given him vigorous support through her columns. While "Jimmy Roosevelt and his mother have a right to their own convictions, others fee they have a right to an explanation; or to come .to their own conclusions with the evidence at hand. I know there are those who admire and respect the congressman and his mother. I yield while they justify such conduct. Meanwhile, from my own observations and conclusions, I'd say,. "We send a hook and ladder to a grass fire, and leave ourselves with a squirt gun to watch the house burn down".

Mis was the lowest of three bids submitted. Meat prostration was believed a contributing cause in the death of Mrs. Manna Voumard, wife of Edward Voumard, at her home on Clawson street. Other deaths included those of Frank Marino, George M. Jackson of Bethalto, Mrs. Ellen Daubman Ford, and Mrs. Mary Lutz, wife of the Rev. Ira Lutz, Godfrey Methodist pastor. Mrs. Mary Markham Connole, 82, of Carrollton, died. She was the mother of Miss Martha Lynn Connole, East St. Louis attorney. A three-shift, seven-day work week was being inaugurated at the locks and dam project In the Mississippi River. A pocket, a deep hole, between the approach tracks to the railroad bridge over the Mississippi River at the foot of Langdon street, was to be filled as a sanitation and beauty measure. In wet weather a pond formed with its characteristic willow and weed growth, With the creation of Riverside Park, and Improvement development at Henry Street Park, due under the relief work program, It was planned to use cinders and other Inoffensive' substances collected to raise the level of the pocket. The city was seeking permission from the CB&Q Railroad to cross its tracks. Harold F. Cheesman of 514 Rozier St., was only slightly injured when lightning struck his home. The bolt knocked an 18-inch hole in the roof, ran down a vent pipe to the basement, up la drain pipe to the bathtub, and struck Chees!man who was standing nearby.

The Steamer Cape Girardeau, one of the finest boats of the Eagle Packet Co. fleet, sank near Cape Girardeau, Mo. The steamer, carrying passengers and freight and cattle,' struck a snag near Turkey Island. Capt. Buck Leyhe, who was master of the boat, turned the steamer to shore. All passengers, livestock, and freight were removed before the boat settled at the stern. It was announced that the Steamer Spread Eagle would run in the Cape Girardeau trade, and that Alton would be served by the Bald Eagle and the G. W.

As a moulder of public opinion Harry also says: "Sen. Jack Ken nedy is too young for the job." He could say the same about Richard Nixon, who is only four years older than Kennedy.

These were addressed to at least 10 labor leaders and many times that number of farm, civic and pressure group officials.
