PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, JUNE 6,1963 Editorial Father of Sewers Spawns Its Own The father of the Alton scwcr program is about to spawn another. More than 10 years back area fathers began seriously to consider their major sewer, and even more urgent sewage treatment problems. They knew they would have to quit dumping raw sewage into the Mississippi sooner or later. Besides, some areas had the problem of complete lack of sewers. Several major plans were considered. One of them involved formation ol a huge sewer district that would cover Alton, Godfrey, and much of Wood River township. Closer investigation of possibilities, however, indicated the advisability of a more flexible procedure. Alton's advisory commission proposed a .system tor the city would service Alton, the Milton and Rogers avenue areas of Wood River township and part of Godfrey. Thus Alton could proceed with its concentrated program, which would remove perhaps the worst offense against the Mississippi, and Godlrcv and the central part of Wood River township could go ahead independently. Alton's was the most urgent problem of the three. We were under the gun of an edict from federal and state governments to cease polluting tlie river. Tourist Shape The way is open for the community's next move into the tourist business — a major motel in position to take advantage of Great River Road traffic as it develops. Developers of the proposed motel were granted a variance from zoning regulations with regard to parking space requirements Tuesday night. This cleared the way for calling of bids and opening of contracts for the undertaking. The new motel, as is highly apparent won't be the only overnight accommodation potential ready to take advantage of the Great River Road's development. Many of our existing hotel and motel facilities are located within three blocks of the great tourist highway as it skirts the Mississippi. The existence of the hotel accommodations is sure to draw into the city and stop overnight the tourists, and will bring them into our business districts, most of which are close to them. This set of circumstances is sure to strengthen our whole retail trade area, and should have a reviving influence on East Broadway, which already is befng improved with the changes in the Luer business block. Bit by bit we already are shaping up in. anticipation of the Great River Road opening. Some traffic from it should begin trickling through at completion of the McAdams Highway. It will grow as the mileage extends down the Wood River Berm expressway, and more links are completed in the Great River Road both north and south of here. The vision of early promoters of the highway will be borne out for our commercial set to see, though the promoters kept most strongly in mind the idea of preserving for the public the natural scenic facilities to which all America has a right. * * » » » Far East Prod Peking was slow to move — perhaps because of its preoccupation with other problems. But it now has launched a propaganda campaign among other nonwhite nations based on exploitation of such race problems Byproducts of the sewer included annexation of important portions of Wood River township, and smaller parts of Godfrey. This nude possible the more (on a per capita basis) planning of the city's sewer. Meanwhile Godfrey Ins proceeded with a program that is gaining nationwide attention. It has formed voluntary scwcr districts and proceeded to accept subscriptions from its property owners for construction of sewers and sewage processing "lakes." Then an omitted portion of Wood River township, including the fast-growing areas — both incorporated and unincorporated — north of East Alton formed their scwcr districts. Originally they had been considered a.s part of the major district. The north Wood River township district now is proceeding with a referendum on a S965,000 general obligation bond issue to be followed by a $2,335,000 revenue bond issue to finance a sewer system that will eliminate the backyard disposal programs improvised over the years. The achievement will be an important one for the communities east of us. It can add much to the future basic potentialities of the area's orderly, healthful, and responsible development. » » as Birmingham, Ala. and Jackson, Miss. Red China has two basic motives — if we accept her running battle with Moscow as actual: 1. Discounting the admixture of Oriental strains inherent in Russia, Peking classifies the Russians as outside the mainstream of emerging racial forces in the formerly exploited area. 2. Red China seeks to yell loudly about our difficulties with a view of solidifying the nonwhite forces of the world against the West. The poor of South and Central America have enough Indian mixture in them to be subject to this appeal. It is one of the circumstances we hate to accept that a virulant outside enemy such as Red China should join in the pressure to hurry us toward solution of our own internal problems. But here is an outstanding case of just that. And we can't afford to get caught in a slow approach to an ailment we should have relieved long ago. It's little wonder the President and his staff are turning every effort to a solution. David Lawrence Base Cause of Race Turmoil Is Economic WASHINGTON - Back in the depression days of 1936, a prominent Negro political! in Pittsburgh told this writer why ho had changed from being a Republican to a Democrat. He had previously served for a few years as an assistant U.S. Attorney General in! Washington. The appointment had 1 been given him by a Republican! administration. > "Make no mistake about it,"| he said. "Don't be fooled by all! the talk of social equality. Wei really don't want it. But what we do want is economic opportunity for the Negro — and you can't have that with millions of persons unemployed." These words came to mind on reading this week a sharply worded statement by C. Wilson Harder, President of the National Federation of Independent Business, Inc., which claims to have the largest individual membership of any business organization in the United States. In a letter to Presi dent Kennedy, Mr. Harder — one THE LITTLE WOMAN ..'^L««; tine FMtnris S> mlitntr. IlK.. I9S 1 '..

Readers Forum 111 Wind in Birminham At Last Illinois is moving now toward a realization that it should have achieved years ago. The Senate has a bill that would permit tapping of telephone wires, under close supervision of law-enforcing authorities and courts, to help trap major criminals and crime leaders. The bill was urged by both Chicago's Police Chief Orlando W. Wilson and Cook County State's attorney Daniel Ward as essential. It does, however, contain provisions for supervision of wire tapping which will necessitate much closer work between county prosecutors and police authorities than often is the rule. Over a good many years Madison County state's attorney and sheriffs, for instance, have made a considerable fetish of the separation of their powers of prosecution and investigation. Our present setup here would make it appear the program would work. But the legal relations of the two offices as followed in the county for years would hardly make it likely a state's attorney would require a sheriff or local police to help him develop a case of wire-tapping. of the many white men in the business world .sympathetic to the cause of jobless Negroes — says in part: "John L. Lewis once told one of your predecessors, You can't dig coal with bayonets.' It would j also seem this is most applicable lo the current strife over civil j rights. Bayonets cannot achieve | tolerance. Before it is too late, jit would be well to recognize basic cause of all this turmoil. That cause is an economic one. . "Ail this race strife is engen dered, not because of differences in schools, or differences in any other facilities. The real root can aptly be termed 'belly' racism. If the free-enterprise system were working in America as it should be operating, there would be full employment, opportunity for all, and there would be ah end to race distubances. After all, the American Negro, comprising 10 per cent of the nation's population, is also a market of consumers. Flames of Violence "This is not a problem of the South. The flames of violence are being fed in the North, and the fuel that feeds these flames are 1 economic in nature. In any major metropolis of the North to which the Negroes have migrated, the relief load is high, the relief costs are creating more and more of a burden on the taxpayers. This, in itself, will create more and more animosity, and feelings engendered by econmic considerations, as history shows, are the most violent of all. ... Employed citizens are not rioting citizens." The foregoing in a way emphasizes the shortsightedness of Republican leaders who today merely parrot the Democrats on "civil rights" issues as if that's the way to win Negro votes, when the real emphasis should be on how to bring about full employment. If Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Bolivian Speaks Out for Friendship WASHINGTON — U. S. Ambassador Ben Stephansky has been telling the State Department about a new type of political frankness which is winning admiration in Bolivia. For years it's been popular to kick Uncle Sam in the seat of the pants when you're running for political office in any Latin-American country. However, former Ambassador Victor Andrade, who served as Bolivia foreign minister and longtime envoy to the United States, is employing a different tactic in running for president of Bolivia. When Andrade returned to La Pa/ after giving up his ambassadorial post in Washington, President Paz Estenssoro offered him a position in the cabinet, or an ambassadorial post, or a job as head of the Central Bunk. But Andrade declined. "I've been away a long time," he said. "I want to get around and be with the Bolivian people. "I might tell you," Andrade added, "that I have a theory which some politicians who find it popular to knock the United States may not agree with. Everyone knows I am a friend of the United Slates and I am going to say so. Furthermore, 1 am convinced that the Bolivan people are fed up with hypo crisy. They know we've been supported by the United States for years and they're tired of having us kick the American people who feed us." Andrade referred to the fact that Bolivia has usually voted against the United States or remained neutral on controversial issues before the United Nations and the OAS. Frequently Bolivia has sided with Fidel Castro, even though one-third of the Bolivian budget is paid for by the United States. Ambassador Andrade carried I be starving today. out his promise, made it clear he is a friend of the USA.

But while she runs the foamy Perhaps in the wake of the crisis at Birmingham, it is time to re-examine the whole situation as it relates to race relations. There were also heavy international complications that could not be foreseen. What did we lose in Birmingham and what did we gain? Birmingham was different from Little Rock and different from Oxford. There was the threat of mass violence latent in the demonstrations, and on the night of the riot the nation trembled on the verge of its worst disastei since the Civil War. There was a perceptible move ment of the Negro race toward the' extreme, and the leaders ol those demonstrations found themselves hard put to control the emotions of the people in the face of brutal police tactics. It has since become apparent that there would be other Birm- inghams even though it was also apparent that we could not really afford that one. But it was in Africa where we ;ot our biggest surprise. The repression in Birmingham came at lie time of the Summit Conference in Addis Ababa and tended o heighten the race tension in hat continent. Jomo Kenyatta, sometimes leader of the Man Mau and now pro- mier designate of Africa's new est nation, cabled Mr. Kennedy There were other cables and bitte criticism of our nation in tin African press.

Then Ben Bella, tin bitter Algerian, announced that h had 10,000 guerilla fighters (vol unteers) ready to send into For tugese Angola. All this did not begin with Birm ingham. Neither will it end with it. For the bitter repressions a Birmingham will long lie over tli conscience of the world. The wil of men everywhere was strength ened in a determination to be free, and much of the world hac begun to see this problem in a perspective different from the one in which we normally see it. It was no longer, "The problem of the American Negro," bui the problem of an elite, a minority of humanity seeking to hole on to special privileges. The world had begun actively to seek an answer to that problem. Birm- ngham was the wind — an ill wind — that promises to blow no one any good. . WARDELL T. JOHNSON 1009 Carson Street.

Mrs. Margaret Greene Howse, whose "Susie's Kitchen Kabinet Band" had raised $1,200 in a series of "concerts" as a nucleus for an eventual $20,000 fund designated for establishing a home for the blind, visited Alton's sight- saving class at Milton School after some years away from the city. The proposed $3,000 bond issue for street improvement at Brighton was defeated, 132 to 102. June 6,1913 Richard S.

The horse out-ran anything else the department had in tests, but refused to function when the chips were down. For instance, during more than a week of training, the horse refused to leave its stall at the sound of the fire bell and, during the excitement of a rush to a fire, plunged about wildly — or stood pat, refusing to move at all. Henry Brueggemann, Alton postmaster, was notified that the Alton Post Office had been elevated to first class status, a move that raised Brueggemann's pay to $3,100 a year.

Chairman Adam Clayton Powell of the House Education and Labor Committee, a Negro, points out that even in a prosperous community like Washington, D.C. three times as many Negroes are unemployed as whites. Spokesman Dr. Kenneth B. Clark, a prominent Negro spokesman who is professor of psychology at City College in New York City, says this week in a copyrighted interview in "U.S. News & World Report"! "Negroes are protesting against racial discrimination in jobs that is as insidious in the North as throughout the South — in spite of state laws against discrimination in employment. New York City is offered as an example of liberal legislation and practices on this subject. Yet the fact of the matter is that even here the overwhelming majority of Negroes and Puerto Ricans are relegated to menial, low-paid jobs and an: exploited by labor unions as much as by employers. . . .

Yesterday's Cryptoqulpt TRAVEL CATALOGUES INTRIGUE THB VACATION SHOPPER WASHINGTON - Agriculture ecretary Orville Freeman is hav- ng his troubles trying to schedule trip to Russia and her Eastern uropean satellites. His unannounced timetable calls for arrival in Moscow on July 13, but this date is now uncertain because the White House doesn't want Freeman there if Mao Tse Tung, chairman of the Chinese Communist party, is still in town. Mao is due in the Kremlin on July 5 for his "ideological" showdown meeting with Premier Khrushchev, but the Central Intelligence Agency hasn't been able to find out how long this summit session will last or to forecast its outcome. . White House efforts to shed some light on the Chinese Communist leader's plans through a series of high-level secret communications with the Kremlin have produced no better information. Other . diplomatic inquiries through governments friendly with both Moscow and Peiping have come up with only guesti- mates that the Chinese-Russian summit will last a week — or right up to the day Freeman is set to arrive. While White House officials are keeping the trip and reasons behind it a deep secret, aides of Freeman have told Democratic farm-state senators that the Agriculture Secretary will sound out the Russians on the possible sale of U. S. surplus farm commodities, including wheat. The senators were informed that Freeman plans to spend about 15 days in Russia and the same amount of time touring Poland, Bulgaria and Rumania, conferring wtih Communist officials and comparing their methods of agriculture with ours. "The visit is all arranged," one Agriculture Department spokesman told the farm-state legislators. "Only the date of arrival is uncertain because of the lack ol information about the Soviet-Chinese summit meeting in Moscow. The President doesn't want a member of his cabinet in Moscow at the same time that meeting is going on. That would raise some eyebrows in this country." Significantly, the Freeman aide added: "President Kennedy hopes to make an announcement about Soviet troop withdrawals from Cuba later this month, and that statement should improve U.S.- Soviet relations before the Secretary makes his trip." The New Bra Secretary Freeman's trip to Moscow and the recent tour of Russia's atomic power plants by Dr. Glenn T.
