PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, JUNE 3,1963 Editorial Great Debate to Bein--Here? The, Madison County Bar Association is performing well its function in cnlling for a full debate ;U its next meeting on three amendments to the federal Constitution now going the rounds of the state legislatures. They arc following the urgent suggestion of no less .1 personage than U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl W.irren, whom, himself has been hit hard by public .statements of some factions. .All three of the proposed amendments peHairi directly to the court and legislative systems that either interpret or make the laws which arc the lawyers' bread and butter. It is only natural that these men skilled in interpretation and handling of the laws should have a deep interest in the question—and should provide some portion of leadership to the public in its thinking on them. One of the amendments would propose a new approach to changing the United States Constitution, itself; another would snuff out a recently recognized right of the federal courts to require that states reapportion their legislative districts. The third would establish a supercourt that would overrule the United States Supreme Court in certain areas of law. All would have a profound effect eventually on both the making and the interpretation of the laws. They have had altogether too little public discussion, and we compliment the Associated Press for its program of calling the proposals to public attention during the last few weeks. The public, however, may well be some time in realizing fully the meaning of these proposals. Only through skilled appraisal by men whose profession is based upon government and court structure can we get that needed full and detailed analysis. That Civil Defense Question Alton may be having its difficulties over civil defense. But the same thing goes for other parts of the country — including Congress. Our City Council scrap over who is to be appointed head of our own commission is as nothing to the situation in Oregon, where the legislature already has abolished the state program after action of the city of Portland in cutting out its own. Oregon Senator Wayne Morse is giving the administration no support in getting the program reinstated, cither, as a subcommittee of the House Armed Forces committee launched hearings this week on a $175 million program oi civil defense. The morality of nuclear blast shelters, for instance, came up for accusations and for defense. Even Philip W. Kellehcr, counsel for the committee, raised questions "Whether the prosecution of the currently planned fallout shelter program, or any extensive or expansion of it, would work a cruel and dangerous deception on the American people, or would it, on the other hand, constitute the salvation of this country both for itself and as the leader of the free world." It may be alarming to realize, from this, that even our leaders in Washington apparently don't have all the answers down pat on this crucial question. But it's at least some satisfaction to ! realize that we at home have some company ' on the bench for the confused. A Credit Complications ' Promotion of Police Cpl. Arthur Pitts to the .rank of sergeant by Chief John Heafner is : a. credit to his race, to the department, and to the civil service program maintained here. Chief Heafner was not required under civil service rules to appoint Pitts sergeant because his score topped those taking the examination. Until recently no mention has been made of examination scores in connection with promotions on the police department. The chief is permitted, and wisely so, to consider othcr factors in a candidate's makeup for promotion if be was among the three top scorers in an examination for any position. Sgt. Pitts has^ worked hard to make himself continuously a better policeman. He lias been given quite generally complimentary mention for his approach to the public in the position of traffic officer where sometimes tempers can flare hotly. He has prepared himself further by completing Northwestern University's three-week law enforcement course, in 1961. Alton can be proud, indeed, of its first Negro police sergeant, and of the fact that, as a community, it is leading the way in this direction. The fact that Sgt. Pitts can demonstrate Dismissal of the Club Flame case indicates county and state authorities have on their hands, in enforcing liquor laws, a more complicated task than merely checking dram- shops and their customers. The case in point involved charges of serving liquor to two service men who were minors. But both service men admitted falsifying their ages through fake identification cards. Now the authorities face the task of running down the sources of these fake cards. It will be a difficult task, but we believe we now have the type of manpower in both the county,—lead by Sheriff Barney Fraundorf—and in the state highway police to turn the trick. At least the sheriff's frequent raids are starting to pay off in dredging up new complications which must be solved along the road. publicly his capacities for improvement and advancement can be an inspiration for others of his race to try harder in whatever responsibilities they may hold at the moment. It should be an eye-opener for those who would sell his race short in the ar^a of mental capacity and self-discipline. David Lawrence Race Issue Climax May Take Time WASHINGTON — History often repeats iself. It may lake fivr or 10 years more to reach a cli max in the constitutional con troversy now sweeping the coun try. But a climax is inevitable It is usually brought on, not by the oponents but by the propon ents of what seems to them a worthy cause. The nation today is apprehens ive about the Negro-white conflicts reported in every part ol the country. Many people are anxiously wondering what the outcome will be. But there is a significant lesson in the experience which this country has already lad with the 18th amendment to the constitution, which prohibited (he manufacture, sale and transportation of alcoholic beverages. Those of us who supported this amendment in 1919 for many years afterwards discovered to our dismay that prohibition itself wasn't he basic issue. After 14 years of controversy, the repeal of the prohibition amendment was rallied by state conventions within 0 months after its approval by Congress. The country was so ick and tared of the controversy md its disruption of American ife that people disregarded the nerits of the prohibition o^iestion tself and decided to turn the roblem back to the states, where t had been before federal inter- •ention and compulsion was un- ertaken. Men and women of all classes— ven in government—patronized "speakeasies" and "bottleggers" perating to violate the law and IB Constitution. Gangsterism jread throughout the land and ourished on the illict trade. All lis caused such a revulsion that ic American people swept the ;sue of prohibition under the rug, •here it has remained ever since, 'oday most states are "wet," nany having "local option" in counties or sale of liquor nly in state stores, and there re still remnants of the crime ;angs which originated during the 'rohibiton Era. The issue itself, owever, has not been agitated n the federal level for many ears now. Changed Position What happened? Were the drys oo extreme? Did they underesti- nale human nature when the •ight of an individual to choose lis own personal habits and associations was challenged? Did he politicians themselves change, and why? Both political parties for more ban a decade supported prohibition in their national-conven- ion platforms, but by 1932 each arty platform moved over to the 'wet" side, and the end of pro- u'bition came in 1933. Now, there was no debate in The Allen-Scott Report Aid to India Strongly Opposed WASHINGTON — President Kennedy's little-noticed proposal ;te give India more than $1 billion, in additional economic and military aid is encountering stre- nous bipartisan opposition in the House Foreign Affairs Committee. All the backstage indications are that this key committee will vole far-reaching restrictions on this huge foreign aid plan. Foremost under consideration is an express requirement that further assistance to India be tied direcHy to that country's coming to an agreement with Pakistan on the long-pending Kashmir issue. . In "the committee's private deliberations, Republicans and Democrats voiced blunt impatience with India's persistent refusal to sellle this war-threatening dispute. They made no bones they feel tho time has come for the U.S. to demand a peaceful solution of this controversy before more aid is dished out to India. The committee's closed-door lustrings brought to Hunt some startling iurts regarding India, as follows: In the past several years, India has received more U.S. aid than any other country in the world. President Kennedy's intention is to continue that policy in the new foreign aid budget now under congressional consideration. It calls for giving India nearly $1 billion in military aid alone. 'Krishna Menon, the acid-tempered leftist who was fired as Defense Minister after Red China attacked India, still is close to Prime Minister Nehru and exerts much influence in his councils. While India, under insistent U. S, pressure, did withdraw some troops from the Kashmir area, this was offset by immediately moving in tanks and artillery — with the net result that India had more fire power there than before. Laying II on the Line The administration sent two high officials to the House Foreign Affairs Committee in an effort to "justify" the huge Indian aid plan. James Grant,''deputy assistant secretary of state for South Asian affairs, and William Gaud, assistant Foreign aid administrator for South Asia, did their best, but hey didn't get very far. They were under heavy fire from start to finish. Representative Thomas Morgan, D-Pa., chairman, started the critical barrage by pointing out: "It is very hard for members of this committee to understand why India insists on the right to 'lout us and the United Nations on the question of Kashmir, and ;o devote a large part of her budg et to building up military defenses against Pakistan. Why shouldn't he U.S. require that India make some concessions in return for :he immense amount of aid they are getting from us?" Depuly Secretary Grant ac- •cnowledged that "There are a fair number of things in which we would like to see them act differently." But he contended that n many other ways India is advancing interests that are very nuch to this country's advantage. "Name one," demanded Rep- •esentative Wayne Hays, D-O.

After a long pause, Grant re plied, "India stands out as a example of what a country ca do to help itself under democra ic concepts." "That's a general statement, snorted Hays. "Name somethin specific." "The Indian troops helped i the Congo," said Grant. "She got paid for them, didn she?" retoreted Hays. "That was not a mercenar; transaction in any way," argue Grant.

THE LITTLE WOMAN ,rl Kin* F?«turr» Symlicnlr. 6-3 "Sure, the motor makes a little noise—just enough to drown out any back-seat driving!" Readers Forum Government Price Fixing hose days over any decision of he Supreme Court of the United States, nor was there any quibble about the right of Congress to 'regulate commerce among the states." By explicit words in the Constitution and in federal law, he manufacture, sale and transportation of liquor was prohibit ed. "Bootlegging" in commerce, however, flourished, and the fed- ;ral government could not recruit agents and marshals fast enough to arrest all the millions of vio- .ators. What bearing has this on the racial controversy? First, theii are today plenty of legal and constitutional disputes over wha is "the law of the land." The 14th amendment itself, for instance —the alleged souces of federa power today—was fraudulently "adopted" in 1868. The Constitution was deliberately violated after the war between the states was over in 1865, when a radica majority in Congress took away the seats of the Southern States in both houses, and troops were sent to compel their "reconstruct ed" legislatures to"ratify"the 14tl amendment. There is nothing in the constitution, of course, which authorizes Congress at any time to force a state to raitfy and proposed amendment to the constitution. Handover Bitter feeling has remained in the Soulh over the excesses of those "resconstruction" days There are people in the North who say that all this now doesn't natter anyhow, since the 14th amendment has been widely accepted as being in the constitu tion, and since many cases have been decided by the Supreme Court on the "assumption" tha the amendment is legal. But it so happens that the highest eour in the land has refused severa times in the last 75 years to take a single case involving the ex plicit issue of whether the "ratification" of the 14th amendment was legal. But, apart from the contro versy over legalities, many people in the South are deeply op posed to social mixing and regard it as a step toward intermarriage Now Proposal Now it is being proposed by the Kennedy administration that al stores and businesses be required to integrate their customers anr to hire a certain number of Negn employes. Economic coercion am threats against businesses art numerous, and arc even beint made by officials of the federa government. (O 1WJ3, N.Y. Herald-Tribune, Inc.) It was pleasant to read the article by Senator Paul Simon in he Telegraph May 28. He pointed out that the government needed a sense of balance in its spend- ng. That is putting it mildly. But t's a joy to know that some of our elected officials try to close he tap on our senseless spending. He opposes spending $96,000 dol- ars to study the diseases of race lorses. I agree with him. W e could use some of it in the study and research for human beings, both physical and mental. We could use it to comfort the aged, or heal the sick. We could use it, and much" more, for our underprivileged children, or to feed and clothe the needy, here and abroad. It is, as he says, not an evil bill. But it is a waste of money. And where do we go out and find $96,000 when we need it the most. Will a healthy race horse feed a hungry family, or help a crippled child to walk?'.! have nothing against race horses. I think they are beautiful. I also think anyone who can afford to own one can afford to keep him healthy. We have an estimated national deficit of $12 billion because of un-res.tricted spending. I think a better phrase would be "speculation and price fixing." As for instance, the wheat referendum. The farmers were smart not to 'ote away their rights. The cheme would apply only to the 964 crops, and only to farmers vith more than 15 acres. Secretary Orville Freeman's hreat to the farmers was that rejection of the bill would send vheat down to $1 per bushel; if accepted it meant $2 a bushel for 30 per cent of the crops and $1.30 or the rest. Is this not price fix- ng and speculation at its worst? But the farmers stood up to be counted as free men and defeated the bill. Now some are speculating on sugar. And why? There s no sugar shortage. We are assured of tliis over and over. Some of the reasons given are down- :hat due to poor management and sad weather in Europe the sugar aeet crops had been poor, despite the fact that our midwestern states are big sugar beet growers. Kansas, alone, gives us far more beets than Europe. As for Cuba we've done without them for some time with out feeling the loss. A couple of years ago. it. wa! coffee. Everyone rushed out to buy and prices mounted until people refused to buy. The same must apply to the sugar hike. If housewives don't buy, it will pile up on the shelf, and sugar producers will lose instead of gain. If we refuse to bleed, they wil! soon remove the needle. Less sugar each day keeps high prices away. LUCY E. HAGAN 216 S. 13th St. Wood River, 111. * * * » Second Choice Any other town that had state track champs coming home would have had a celebration. This was the first time in years that any team in the southwestern part of the state has won this honor. What happens when one of the teams wins a championship? Some of the fans, students, teachers and parents meet the team in the pit when the champs come home, and congratulate them. Is this any way to show a team how proud we are of them? Why couldn't we at least have had a parade or some more elaborate type of celebration, such as Collinsville's when its basketball team won the state title? We would like to give the team, coaches, and everyone who had any connection with the meet our congratulations for a job well done. We are sorry the state track champs could not have been greeted the same ight silly.

Construction of the new Nazarene church would raise the total to five. Others were, the Seventh Day Adventist, Main Street Methodist, Free Methodist, and Jameson Baptist. Henry street, with St. Mary's, Congregational, Grace M. E., and Evangelical, was second, and Market street, with St. Paul's Episcopal, First Baptist, and First Methodist was third. A rasli of telephone calls to the Telegraph resulted from an almost crystal white rainbow "halo" which appeared about the sun following a brief shower. Alice Elizabeth Bartlett received the Davison Cup for general excellence at Shurtleff College commencement in a class of 18; Ben 0.

Donyan, 27, of East St. Louis, was injured fatally in motorcycle races at Jerseyyille. Reuben Larson of Rockford, and W. A. Haynes of St. Louis, were seriously hurt in spills at the same races. Rose Ann Mueller, honor student at East Alton-Wood River Community High School, was the first member of the second generation to graduate from the school. Her mother had been a member of the 1918 class. After four summers, the First Baptist and First Presbyterian congregations abandoned their joint summer Sunday worship when the Baptist pastor, the Rev. J. M. Warner, was forced to request a recuperative leave of absence. Mr. and Mrs. William M. Gent observed their 25th wedding anniversary. A United States Department of Agriculture representative, working in Illinois on pest eradication, found Hartford's southwest section had a count of 150 grasshoppers per square yard. The department was furnishing poisons to eradicate the pest. June 3,1913 Alumnae of Monticello Seminary had already raised $25,000 of a diamond jubilee fund of $50,000 for the school. Alumnae groups had set a four-year period to complete the fund, but had secured subscriptions for half the total in less than a year, it was announced by the principal, Miss Martina C. Erickson. A class of 28 received diplomas at the seminary's 75th commencement. Among Alton graduates were Miss Elinor Hewitt of Alton, class president, who was a granddaughter of a member of the first graduating class in 1838; and Misses Elizabeth R. Caldwell and Hazel M. Eaton. A crew of Stone & Webster started work on Alton levee for erection of steel towers which would carry Keokuk high tension power lines through the city. The steel poles were to be 38 feet tall, based in concrete. The Rev. D. R. Martin had been appointed by Gov. E. F. Dunne to serve as chaplain at the opening of the slate senate sessions. Only a light vote was being polled here In the county-wide special election on the proposal to issue $250,000 in bonds for a new county courthouse.

Howard Gray resigned as shop foreman for the AJ&P Railway and was to be succeeded by John Bauer, recently employed with the McKinley line. Victor Riesel Says: Pipefitters Demands Costly to Public WASHINGTON, D.C. — An "exceptionally secret" laboratory is being constructed at a southwest U.S. arsenal. I have been asked not to discuss the nature of its eventual experiments. But I can report, that the lab, when completed, will have 32 complex sterilizers as vital parts of its equipment. These machines are produced as full units by the American Sterilizer Co. in Erie, Pa., and shipped in operational shape to the installation. But a union at the arsenal, the plumbers and pipefitters, now want the intricate sterilizers de- piped. They want to take the sensitive equipment apart by removing the already installed piping. They want these finished tubes then discarded. They want to make — fabricate — new pipes and then reinstall the pieces in the sterilizers. Similar demands have been made at Air Force bases, missile testing stations, and hospitals — just to mention a few involving the public's money. Recently I reported that West Coast plumbers and pipefitters has asked for removal of sterilizer machine piping at the San Diego County Hospital. California's Governor Edmund Brown, on reading the column, asked his State Industrial Relations Dept. to look into the conflict there. It did. It found that the dispute had been settled shortly afer the column appeared. Then the Governor graciously wrote me the following: "Your article on the plumbers' demands was referred to the Di- teams have been in past years. Our wish is that the team will give us another chance next year by bringing the title home again. Alton track fans: NORMA HAMELMANN, JANE HUTTE, TAMARA HUTTE, DIANE WEHRLE rector of Industrial Relations for a report. 'Trying to Be Fair' "Enclosed find a copy of such report. I give this to you without comment, but I want you to know that I am deeply interested in trying to be fair to both employer and employe in the Stale. Sincerely." It is good of the Governor to send along the report, which had news in it of the settlement. But other sections of the nation are not as fortunate in developing such speedy settlements. Therefore the public becomes involved in the plumbers' strange demands. It seems to me the public has its place alongside the other parties. In the first place the direct impact of the plumbers and pipefit- ters' demands, if won, forces higher costs for defense and pro- VLkes delays. The public's cost of keeping healthy rises, too. And for what reason? The machines come from the American Sterilizer Co. plant, which is heavily unionized by the Interna- Today 7 s Prayer Since the days of beauty have returned again, help us, O God, to look up, to adore Thee in all the sights and sounds of Ihe earth in spring.

A.) tional Assn. of Machinists, the pattern makers, the foundry workers, and the unaffiliated American Sterilizer Industrial Union. The first three labor units are members of the AFL-CIO. .. Now we find that locals of another AFL-CIO union, the plumbers and pipefitters, want to remove the work done by three brother unions. Therefore there certainly is no question of handling union-made goods. This then becomes simply an issue of increasing the work and pay of regional pipefitters. If the pipefitters win the issue, they actually determine the nature of production at the original sterliz- er plant. The machines would have to be stripped of the piping inserted by skilled union men at home. The bare machine would have to be shipped along with blueprints. Many of these sterilizers differ slightly from the others. 1 find that V. F. Lecliner, American Sterilizer Co. president, put it most forcefully when he told me: ". . . Hospitals throughout the country are making strides in reducing waste and increasing efficiency in order to bring to the patient the best possible care at a reasonable charge. "Action of the plumbers union tends to negate these cost reduction efforts, and would place additional burden on the hospitals and the community. ..." And, of course, any such increase in costs of health and defense is an increase in the cost of living of millions of union families. Involved are not only sterilizers, but millions of other pieces of equipment — and therefore scores of millions of dollars out of the public's pocket. Does this make sense?

Answer: Not necessarily, but marriage counselors and divorce courts are very familiar with this phenomenon. Any suitor who has been jilted or disappointed in love usualjy suffers more from deflated ego than from the loss of the loved one. His (or her) pressing need is not only to restore his self respect, but to find solace for the emotional hurt. This last factor makes • it easy to transfer his affection to the first girl who offers admiration and kindness. Answer: It depends on the degree of maturity achieved in childhood and adolescence. Although most children can take criticism and instills from friends without undue ego damage, this resilience lessens during the adolescent years when self-esteem fluctuates between highs and lows.
