We urge * conference between representatives of the two groups to reassess their relationships of the past and work out those of the future. Too many matters of too high an importance are involved to permit bickering over who i should do what—or be told what—to conflict j with advancement. The energy put into the bickering could gain a lot of progress if pressed into a planned program of coordination. Slate to Seek Downey Data | Illinois Attorney General William L. Guild jmnounced Tuesday he intended to inquire into the federal government's income tax case against jjPilliam W. (Smokey) Downey, former assistant to Governor Stratton. ; Thus far little has come out regarding the £ase because of the stage of litigation before the fcourt. Mr. Downey has pleaded "no content," a move that would not exempt him from punish- hient, but at the same time would hold up presentation of evidence against him in open fcourt. Federal Judge Omer Poos is due to decide bn the "no contest" plea in several weeks. If jhe denies the plea, evidence against Downey fcan be presented and made public. The Telegraph pointed out when the charges were first brought up that the primary interest in the case was not so much Mr. Downey's failure to pay his income taxes—though that is serious enough. The prime point would be what a man in his position as chief confidential aide to the governor would- be doing to make that amount of money. Mr. Downey had been operating a public relations firm. Such an operation, of course, could cover a wide scope of activity which could involve state law. The attorney generafs announcement of an inquiry into the matter is praiseworthy. Made thorough enough, it should clear up a lot of confusion—we hope in time to guide Illinois voters in November. Alton as Milling renter - A front-page picture in the Telegraph Tues- jday stressed the importance Alton is gaining in a revived field—flour miffing. ! The photograph showed a long line of automobile trucks, as drivers waited their turn to go to the Russell Miller Milling Co. with their 'Joads of wheat. The flow of the golden grain appeared at its height. Alton in its early years was a flour-milling 'center. Two firms were important in the industry—Sparks and Stanard-Tilton.

Correctly, the United States and Great Britain rejected Monday as "completely unsatisfactory" a Soviet proposal to allow three inspections a year on Soviet territory to check suspected nuclear explosions. U. S. Ambassador James J. Wadsworth told the chief Soviet 'delegate to Geneva, Semyon K. Tsarapkin, the figure of three could not even be taken seriously in view of expert estimates that at least 108 "seismic events" take place annually in the Soviet Union. The inspectors would seek to check unidentified earth tremors. It is apparent that the Russians could conduct scores of nuclear experiments after the three annual checks had been used up. staliations of Russell-Miller on W. Broadway. More recently Russell Miller has taken over much of the old Sparks property. Again, wheat- harvesting time looms important for our area and our city as long lines of trucks bring the grain to Alton. In contrast to former years, the milling industry utilizes several forms of transportation. The automobile truck has replaced the horse- drawn wagon, huge barges now ply the rivers where once packet steamboats chugged their way up and down the Mississippi, and the railroads still are available as they have been for a century or more. a flour-milling center enhances it;. importance to the huge fertile countryside that surrounds the city. » » » » » In flation Victim Next time anyone tells us something isn't "worth a farthing," we'll have an apt answer. There won't be any more farthings. The British are taking the farthing (quarter penny) out of circulation, and it isn't even legal tender after the end of 1960. The cause? Inflation. No one in Britain even prices items in quarter pennies any more, it seems. And besides, it costs more than the farthing is worth just to mint it. The "good five-cent cigar" can move over and make room for the farthing in the limbo of obsolescence.

Here Is his reply, in no uncertain terms: By ROGER BLOUGH PITTSBURGH — When Victor Riesel asked me to "feather- bed?'Jpr him — as he put tt — and do (his column on "The Lessons-'.of. the Steel Strike," it seenJM only fair to comply. After ajl, tome of the most interesting things we. learned about that strike came from him and from other famous column-writing, JP>Q8> For example, in the early day* of the negotiations, we wai^ informed that mere would be np Steel strike at all. Later on, wo. were assured that the strik* would last no longer than six wetfks or two months at most, and that a steel price hike happily to the siren song of faraway places. And the simple little chore he has left with me is to compress all the lessons ol the late lamented steel strike into a few hundred well-chosen words. That task would clearly be sim pier were it not for the fact that different people, with differing points of view and varying inte rests in the outcome, have undoubtedly gleaned widely divergent lessons from the prolonged steel controversy. So far as the steel companies are concerned, I can speak with all the assurance to which an amateur columnist is entitled; but in discussing the lessons which may have been learned by other people and other groups, I can only follow the example of my professional brothers-in-writing and speculate freely. The per- would follow immediately in K*^ reader - therefore, will the wake of any settlement fin- wlsel >' «»«true these speculative ally achieved For all of this invaluable information, of course, we were deeply grateful to these gentlemen; and it is in partial payment of our debt to them that I now find myself pushing this labored pencil while Riesel yields AltonEveningTelegraph Published Dally py Alton Telegraph PrinUiu Company f. ».

III. Act erc* a. ll?v Of AHOC'UTSO PBBM vely ,- Aoselet efforts more as an expression of hope than as a revelation of gospel. That being understood, it seems to me that the lessons of the steel strike might be summarized this way: A lesson learned by the steel companies is that they must keep trying but have not yet learned how to achieve a wholly non-inflationary labor agreement in so-called free collective bargaining, whether or not the government intervenes. Experience shows that such resources as the companies have thus fur been able to command have been unequal tq the power and influence arrayed against them in negotiations. A lesson for thoughtful political leaders might be that with power on opposite sides of the bargaining table divided as unequally as it now is, not even the strength and prestige of the highest government officials seem to prevail against the tide ol wage-push inflation thai inches irresistibly on. A lesson for the union leadership would be, hopefully, that no agreement which weakens the com|jetiUve position of the companies, or which baix the adoption of a better, easier and le*s- ex|*niiive way of doing work, can ever promote the job security or the long-range economic welfare of the union membership. And a lesson for union members may be that, loyal as they are — and should be — to their union, they are a vital part of a productive team which includes themselves, management and owners; and that they cannot injure the work of that team without injuring the whole enterprise —themselves included. Fortunately, such lessons as these are becoming clearer to all 01 us, I believe, and the new labor agreements provide the mechanism through which these lessons can be translated into action, progress and industrial peace. This mechanism consists of two joint union-company committees set up to tackle the thorny problems that have caused much of the dissension from which the steel industry has suffered in the past 20 years. With understanding and patience, there is real hope that these committees will discover one universal lesson of the steel strike: That the national interest the customers' interest, the union members' interest and the companies' interest are indivisible .. . that there can be no lasting benefit for one unless there is true benefit for all. And to that real hope, 1 firmly hold. O I860 The Hall Syndicate, Inc.)

There's llttlo sense in appro printing billions for "foreign aid" or for assisting the United Nations to protect the lives of foreigner in such areas as the Congo, when no provision is being made to protect the properties of citizens who already have built their homes and businesses abroad. Why should American companies bo encouraged now of hero- after by our government to invest capital in foreign countries when, as in the case of Cuba, for instance, such properties are confiscated without satisfactory arrangements for adequate compensation? The United States is being asked to assist the new government of the Congo. Yet, in the face of firsthand testimony to the contrary, the Congo prime minister says it's a lie that foreign women have been raped and mistreated. American taxpayers are footing the bill for supplies being sent to the Congo through the United Nations, but there is no sign of any recognition by the Congo government of its responsibilities to the foreigners. Indeed, the new prime minister, Patrice Lumumba, who was wined and dined only a lew days ago in Washington, has just approved an order by his cabinet whereby all properties abandoned by the Belgians when they fled from the Congo will be grabbed by the government at Leopoldville unless reclaimed within eight days. This is a plain case of thievery. It is a result of the action of the Congo government's own troops, who engaged in the very atrocities which di rectly caused the flight of thousands of Belgians back to civilization. Businessmen ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Side Glances «» WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3,1WO I in the United tales are being importuned nowadays by their government to invest private capital in the "underdeveloped areas," so that the burden of direct aid will be lessened.

World Court to secure protection for the legal rights of American citizens, it would be far better to enter into bilateral agreements with the governments of individu- scarcity of subjects but the al countries that seek American aid, and to require a written understanding that, if disputes arise over confiscation or "nationalization" of private busi- icsses, there would come into operation judicial machinery that had been set up in advance. Special arbitration tribunals, with representatives of neutral countries, could be provided for, which would render judgments in specific cases. Failure to abide by such decisions should give the government of the United States, or of other countries which follow the same course, the right, granted by treaty beforehand, to use their armed forces to take vi'r any properties confiscated by a foreign government where no proper system of compensation las been established. If Uie United Nations, for instance, is to send in joint military forces to police troubled areas, it can use them also to protect property rights. Superficial thinking sometimes attributes less importance to property rights than to "human rights" — as if the two could always be separated. Yet in the Congo tens of thousands of natives are suffering the loss ofj jobs because an immature government has recklessly driven out all the managers, the technicians and the trained employes of foreign business establishments. Also, nearly all of the doctors of the community have been forced to flee. It will take years now to train substitute] personnel, and in the meantime the native population will suffer. This is indeed a human tragedy. There is lots of talk in Congress about "foreign aid," and it is frequently referred to also in the speeches of officials of the executive branch of the government. But there can be little accomplished to stablize the economy of small countries just by "giveaways."
