Rockefeller on the nature of crucial platform planks both were willing to support. Mr. Nixon demonstrated his willingness to listen to counsel from leadership and authority which is highly regarded in many places. Gov. Rockefeller apparently has made his point in insisting he wasn't trying to get himself nominated in his insistent suggestions policy; rather, he was frank ahead. In recognition of these new changes ahead in our problems, even the present administration already is making a drastic and tough change in its foreign policies toward Russia and Cuba. Certainly the party responsible for outlining a policy for four years ahead will need to make changes to meet recognizably changing problems. aft Indications some of the scrap will j And, as he explained Saturday night—while' History proves that in not aj <k«k* Oft the floor, over th. platform as a re- j the principles on which he «£ Mr. Nixon •^; |n ^^ a ; l ^ rc ^ | | by carrying his own state, con-j tributed enough electoral votes | to bring in his running mate. This has been true for more The Way to Accomplishment It is encouraging to note the attitude taken fey one softball team here toward facilities made available by the city government. Some sad notes have been sounded of late over the playing field conditions offered in our public parks. Softball has grown much harder since we used to play it on the two-ground diamond behind Roosevelt School building. Most of the sad notes could have been sweetened by some well-organized hard work on the part of the players, themselves, and anyone else interested. But folks nowadays have become dependent upon government. This has been one of the causes for our mounting tax bills—which bring some sad notes, too. The Sager's pharmacy team took a different view. A member of a City Softball League, the team wanted to entertain out-of-town groups and play independently as well. The players recognized that perhaps out-of-town players wouldn't take kindly to rough and unclipped diamonds. At any rate they wanted to put their All-America city's best foot forward in entertaining guests. Instead of waiting for the Recreation Department and the Park Commission to open their limited pocketbooks, they took matters into their own hands. They also took a progressive step. They created a new, usable playing field by restoring proud old Olin Water- tower playground—one of the first floodlighted recreation areas in southern Illinois—to usable condition. We need more such independent thinking and action in Alton. That way we'll make ourselves more "All-America" than ever. Premier Lumumba on Display Does the world have another Fidel Castro problem in the Republic of Congo? Or is Premier Patrice Lumumba sincere in denying he is a Communist, or led by Communists? : .This will te the heart>rendering choice of, judgnienf~the western wor!3 'must make, or see the answer demonstrated to, in the months ahead. Meanwhile, the new nation's premier is in this country, going before the United Nations, with the intention of seeking assistance of many acquainted with Mr. Lumumba. He has been premier of Oongo for but a brief time. His campaigning for the nation's leadership had little chance of bringing forth from him statements of aim and policy which the West could understand. He was speaking in a .world and to a people of whose culture and desires We know little. The violence in the Congo could have been stirred by Communist undercover leaders. But ft need not have been. In fact, the answer to this may well provide us with an answer to out' than 100 years. Take the 1928 election for instance. Al Smith, who had three times been elected governor of New York on the Democratic ticket, did not carry the electoral votes of his own state. As for his vice-presidential nominee, Joseph T. Robinson — who was nationally known because, like Lyndon Johnson, he was the Democratic leader of the Senate — the results after election day showed that he can-led his home state of Arkansas all right, though by a reduced margin. But he couldn't prevent five other states of the solid south from going Republican. This has often been attributed to the religious issue, tout J;his writer always has believed it was related to the prohibition issue. For the south was determined at that time to keep its states dry because of circumstances related to the Negro, problem. Take next the 1952 campaign, when the Democrats thought it might be helpful to have a southerner on the ticket. Sen. John Sparkman, the vice-presidential nominee, carried his home state of Alabama though by a greatly reduced majority as the Republicans piled up a vote in that state nearly four times what Dewey, the Republican presidential nominee, got in either 1944 or 1948. But the presence of a southerner on the ticket didn't prevent four other southern states — Texas, Tennessee, Florida and Virginia — from going Republican, and there was no religious issue involved either. Take then the 1956 election when another southerner, Sen. Estes Kefauver, was named for the vice-presidency on the Democratic ticket after a consistent string of victories in the primaries of several states in the north. The south didn't back him. Not only did he lose his own state of Tennessee but the Republicans also again earned kinds. Stopping in London on his air journey j future policy toward the Congo.

Render 9 * Forum One Buffs-Eye by Miller From a missile base somewhere in Jersey County, quite frequently, a "bomb" is dropped in the Alton area.- These bombs are fired by Col. "Pot-Shot" Miller. And his main target is the McAdams Highway. Our traffic, parking and the Clark Bridge have been bit by Col. Miller. I can recall when Col. Miller scored a bull's eye — right on target. He suggested that the city of Alton preserve the old Penitentiary wall in Uncle Remus Park. , I personally agree with him. It's a landmark. Let's keep it. In the year 1825, Gov. Ford of Illinois called attention to the great reign of lawlessness in the state, especially along the Mississippi river banks. The State Capitol was then at Vandalia. In the- sessions of the General Forum Writers, Note Writers names must be published with letters to the Readers Forum. Letters should be concise and legible. All are subject to condensation. the prison was built, and as high as 1,000 persons — men and women — were from time to time within its walls as prisoners. The prison proper, with all of its buildings, took in all of what is now Penitentiary Plat on William street. During the 1860's the place was used as a war prison, and Southern soldiers were brought here. Those who died were buried in what is now the Confederate cemetery on the North Side. of anticipation warrants at a higher interest rate would be avoided. H. C. Speer & Sons Co., whose spokesman explained the proposal, suggested for Alton a 10-year bond Issue of i$100,000, one-tenth of which would be retired leach year by an extra tax levy. i Life insurance payments in Alton during J1934 totaled $343,000 with the largest single | payment of $30,038 to an individual. Chicago 'led the state in payments, and was second In i the nation. The city ordinance against soliciting and door-to-door peddling and selling by non-resident salesmen had been rescinded under a Circuit Court decision. The city appealed to M. E. Newell, city attorney, 1o draft a substitute ordinance that would meet the limitations of the I court decision. The school of nursing at Alton State Hospital •'graduated six nurses. They were Amelia Hor- Iton, Albion; Hilda Chambers, East St. Louis; Mildred Traband, Wood River; Pauline Deans. Cypress; Elaine Hull, Mount Carmel; and Helen Fritslnger, Anna. Because a four-year-old was either unable to grasp the warning or ignored it, given by his j sister, 8, he sustained a possible crushed skull, cuts, and bruises. Viola Rist had left her brother "Sonny Boy'", (James William) on the curb of U.S. Highway No. 67 near Niagara as she guided a neighbor child to safety through the heavy traffic.

Chairman Peter Guertler of the Council's street and alley committee reported completion of a streets department Job in which 398 catch- basins had been cleaned and Inspected. The Builders Exchange brought In 20 nonresident building workmen who were assigned to contractors for a resumption of building work here. Several of the workmen were assigned to Contractor Henry Wardein who faced a penalty clause for delay In completing the Laer Block building. Building Trades Council officials met and named a committee to wait on the owners of the Luer building and "request only union labor be employed.

Drew Pearsoii's Merry-G o-Round Demo Ammunition for Nixon CHICAGO On the eve of the Democratic convention this column published some of the political ammunition which Republicans had been gathering against the front-running candidate, Sen. Jack Kennedy. On the eve of the Republican convention it's also important to report the ammunition which the Democrats liave gathered against the front- running GOP candidate, Richard M. Nixon. Here is some of it: Intervention in Cuba— With Cuba now in the headlines, the Democrats have unearthed the interesting fact that Nixon wrote a letter to the American ambassador in Havana asking his inter. bassador Willard Beaulac asking his help regarding something no American ambassador should concern himself with — a gambling debt. Significantly, Dana Smith is the man who collected the $18,000 personal expense fund for Nixon. Democrats will point out that Nixon has always stated he never did any favors for those who contributed to his fund. They will his special government plane to Moscow last year an ex-bootlegger, Frank Vitale, now one of the beer barons of Southern California.

His running mates in the two campaigns had no in-| fluence in his behalf in the northern states. There have, moreover, been instances in which the vice-presidential nominee lost his home state, but the party ticket won just the same. Thus, in 1940 Henry Wallace, Democratic candidate for the vice-presidency failed to carry his own state of Iowa, but Franklin D. Roosevelt won the election. John Bricker carried his own state of Ohio as the vice-presidential nominee on the Republican ticket in 1944, while presidential nominee Dewey failed to carry New York State and lost the election. Another instance of failure of the vice-presidential nominee to help win the election was in 1948, when Earl Warren, former governor of California and now chief justice of the U. S. Supreme Court, lost his home state while Dewey won his own state of New jYork. Yet the Republicans mis- enough of state land ey to build a prison. The place of its building was to be at Alton. Gov. John Reynolds in 1831 caused some 40,000 acres of public lands to be sold, the funds to be used to build a prison. In 1833 A Little Overdone How many of you have heard these words from your dear hubby, "Hon, what's wrong with the roast? Little done isn't it? Not that it doesn't taste good, but just a little scorched?" Even though you know he is right, he could have just eaten it and kept quiet. Then two or three evenings later at the get-together cookout in the back yard, Dad is the chief cook and the one who does the barbecuing. Dad's barbecued ribs are really delicious and the best we ever ate. We all agree that even though they are absolutely burnt on the outside, you can't taste it. Besides, the barbecue in the back yard is a treat for all of us. Isn't that funny? If we had cooked that meat in our kitchen and burnt it on the outside like that, more than likely we would have thrown it away. But it makes a big difference if you barbecue in the yard and burning the meat makes it all the better.

When the American people vote in a presidential election, they apparently either cast their ballots for the parly they favor or the presidential nominee they like — they don't stop to appraise the possibility that a vice- i presidential nominee, if elected, might possibly be president some day. Indeed, seven vice presidents have succeeded to the presidency out of a total of 33 men who have held the office of president. Thus, about one out of five, or a little more than 2) per cent, of the presidents have come to the White House through the vice-presidency. Three who' succeeded to the presidency were ! subsequently elected in tlvpir own right. All this really suggests that each party should select for the second piuue on the ticket the best qualified man in their ranks irrespective of the geographical area in which he lives and irrespective of whether he can placate the dissidents of a certain ideological wing of his party- N.

Nixon deems such tax relief vital for the "steady and sound expansion of the nation's economy." Also being considered by Nixon is coming out for a cut in upper income tax rates; such as reducing the ceiling from 90 to 75 per cent. No decision has yet been made on this. It's still under delibera- lieve in acting promptly and forcefully. Too many individuals, who claim to have a monopoly on conservatism, employ that philosophy for the purpose of resisting change. I do not agree with that. "I look upon economic conservatism as a tool to grapple with the great economic and social problems of our time. The application of conservative economic principles, in my judgment, provides the best method for the greatest progress. I flatly reject the negative, oppositionist type of conservatism. I am a progressive in so far as goals are concerned, and in my concern for human problems. "Above all, I do not believe in sitting by and saying that things will solve the'mselves. They won't especially in these extremely difficult and uncertain times.'" Noting the strong liberal tenor of the Democrats' platform, one GOP leader asked Njxon how he proposed to deal with that challenge. Nixon replied he prise or on the government? "Basically, Kennedy favors greatly expanded government action as the instrumentality for progress. Now, while I recognize tot gOTernment-«BMi*|' jriay an important role, ¥ ilso oefleve that the greatest source of progress is thrpoghjthe adoption of policies which stimulate the opportunities for individual enterprise.
