PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12,'1963 Uniqu Editorial e in Political Histoi Events move speedily on the Alabama University scene these days. Governor Wallace defied the President of the United States and our court system in "barring" the door to the school's administration building when James Hood and Vivian Ma lone sought to register there Tuesday. He was, he said, keeping a campaign promise and assuring the preservation of law and order. At the time law and order were kept on the campus — except for what Gov. Wallace did. And the two were registered eventually. NVhether his presence at the door spelled the difference between rioting and peace on the campus will never be possible to determine. How his presence there could be interpreted in any way as a necessary measure of peace-keeping is difficult to fathom except as a symbolism to counterbalance the symbolism 7 of two Negros breaking the race harrier at the school. Within the average citizen's ability to understand, it would seem that the governor's presence at the door could only constitute a tlirc.n to law and order, though he bad ordered out the state's National Guard, since absorbed into the federal army, to maintain peace. the governor did will need a lot of explaining — explaining we probably won't even have time to listen to in the sweep of events ahead. Historians may need to write books about it. But it's doubtful present-day man will get a full interpretation of what it all meant. Most of us will go through life believing the governor kept at least one campaign promise literally. Thereby he may well go down in history as a man unique in political annals. Fiscal Puzzle Explained Interpretation by the city's accounting counselors has gone a long way toward settling a misunderstanding among officials regarding the excess of appropriation accounts over actual spending for the fiscal year. NVhile Auditor William Grandficld assured that the "excess" was actual, from an accountant's viewpoint, his caution against arranging to spend the money should be heeded by the City Council — and probably will be. At least a portion of the excess represents funds held in escrow under tax objections still pending from last year. Meanwhile, the city faces another "generous" crop of these tax objections filed by industries and utilities this year against the 1962 levies and appropriations. And we can expect further objections next year against the levies the council is adopting this year, since the city officials do not: have the benefit of court decisions on the earlier ones. The city cannot be assured until court decisions are returned on these tax objections whether it should expect to collect all the taxes represented in the "excess." There are other factors, too, as Grandfield and other city authorities pointed out in Monday night's council finance committee meeting. One of them is that a government body rarely restricts its appropriations to the amount of revenue it is reasonably sure to raise. This adds needed flexibility to the budget, but also better assures a tax rate that will raise the property taxes actually needed, allowing for delinquencies and for objections. The council will be doing well to move cautiously in the face of demands from many directions for additional expenditures. And then it must consider the possibility of the kind of emergency it encountered Monday evening in the heavy storm that hit the city. * » » » » Archery and ; Love' One of the criticisms we've always made of a lot of the games youngsters learn in school is the near impossibility of using them for needed physical recreation later in life. Many require higly organized team play and expensive equipment. The Recreation Department, then, is to be commended for its decision to provide instruction for two forms of physical recreation .this summer when youngsters are bound to find time hanging heavy on their hands. It has employed a teacher for both tennis and archery. Both skills lend themselves to participation by a minimum of personnel, therefore offer needed flexibility for the person who cannot coordinate his recreation hours with a number of others in large group games. Both are wholesome outdoor sports whose equipment covers a flexible price range that can open them to all. The two sports offer widely constrasting degrees of physical exertion as a choice, too. Of course one need not point out the highly logical and linguistic connection between the cupid theme behind archery and the "love" of tennis. David Lawrence President Violated Constitution? WASHINGTON — President Kennedy on Tuesday took t h e same risk thnt his predecessor did in ordering federal troops to compel the admission of students to a public educational institution. Was the Constitution violated by the chief executive himself? The same laws which were cited by the Eisenhower administration in connection with Little Rock were given as authority by President Kennedy. This does not mean that either incident was in conformity with the Constitution, or that some day the Supreme Court of the United States will not decide that the Constitution was actually violated in both instances. Those sections of the law now being used as a basis for presidential action were passed nearly 100 years ago during or just after the war between the states. They refer to the enforcement or execution of "laws of the United States," but neither at Little Rock on Sept. 24, 195B, nor at Tuscaloosa this week were there any specific laws involved that deal with desegregation of public educational institutions. One provision cited relates only in general terms to "unlawful obstructions" which may make it "impracticable to enforce the laws of the United States in any state or territory by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings." Another provision authorizes the President to use troops if an insurrection or conspiracy occurs which "impedes the course of justice" under the laws of the United States.

Taf t and Warren Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round U-2 Report Is Managed News WASHINGTON — Probably the I year hence. most important piece of managed news in government files today is a secret report which came from sending a U-2 spy plane into the upper atmosphere. It was sent, not to spy over Russia, but t o ascertain the amount of radiqactivity remaining from the last Soviet-U.S. nuclear tests. The results were shocking. It was found that three times as much dangerous radio activity remains in the upper atmosphere as anticipated. This is now in ,the process of falling to the earth. When the National Advisory Committee on Radiation asked for a copy of this report on May 21, it was refused. The report remains top secret. Obviously no security is involved in this report. The presence of radioactivity in the upper atmosphere is not going to reveal any secrets to the Russians. They helped put some of it there, and its presence is no military secret. Since it has to come down, the American public is bound to know about it. Therefore, the facts should be published so as to give state health officials an opportunity to prepare for it. Despite this, the report remains suppressed. This coincides with Pentagon moves to keep the public uninformed regarding nuclear fall-out dangers, apparently so there will be less protest when tests are resumed. This is one reason congressmen diet Holifield D-Calif., and Mel Price D- 111., were unable to get the federal radiation council to promise any guidelines for radioactive danger during congressional hearings last week. The earliest Dr. Paul Tompkins would promise any federal standards was one Alton Evening Telegraph Published Dally by Alton Telegraph Printing Company P. B. COUSLEY, Publisher PAUL S.

National Advertising Representatives: The Branham Company, New York, Chicago, Detroit and St. Louis, Pentagon Sets Policy Inside fact in the confusion and news suppression over radioactive fallout is that the Kennedy administration operates a strong Pentagon and a weak Department of Health Education and Welfare, and no firm action is being taken by Kennedy's science adviser, Jerry Wiesner. Last August when radioactive fall-out was so bad in parts of the West the farmers in Utah and Minnesota took their cows off pasturage. The military advisers on radioactivity got worried. They didn't want the public to get alarmed. Secretary of HEW Anthony Celebrezze went on the air to calm the nation. Celebrezze had only been in office a short time, was not fully familiar with either radioactive dangers or the fact that his public health service has been vacci- lating in the face of Pentagon pressure. Paradoxically, Secretary of Defense Bob McNamara has been one of the most forthright members of the Kennedy administration in being concerned about nuclear testing but doesn't always control his generals. Dairy farmers have also been most cooperative and patriotic regarding nuclear fall-out, sometimes at considerable expense. They have taken their cows off green pasture when asked to do so, and fed hay and stored silage, from which there is no danger. Fortunately, Iodine 131, the chief risk for the thyroids of young children, evaporates quickly. In eight days one-half of its strength is gone, and in 18 days 75 per cent. In 36 days, 94 per cent of its strength is gone and n two months all has evaporated. Thus farmers can save green pasturage for a late hay harvest meanwhile using stored hay. However, neither the farmers nor state authorities can cooperate if they don't know what the danger guidelines are and if they don't know the facts in the suppressed U-2 report on radioactivity. years of age to belong to this elite corps. But mostly you must be male and white. Rep. Barratt O'Hara of Chicago was bluntly reminded of this when he tried to name a Negro youth to the page roll not long ago. Few of the pages themselves have any racial prejudices. They feel it would be better to lift th; j color bar (rather than the sex distinction) as a starter. Bil Bradley of Ware, Mass., 15-year- old page appointee of speaker John McCormack, summed up the general feeling this way: "We just carry out orders anc try to do a good job. Of course we are not against Negro pages As for girls, there is a practical objection. Even if their parents were agreeable, girls would fine this work too tough. "Pages have to be up every morning at 6:30 for school anc stay on the job until 5 or 6 p.m. sometimes later. I occasionally have to run 40 errands a day for house members. That might be hard for a girl." There are 24 pages in the Senate, 50 in the House. The great majority of them are political patronage employes of the party controlling Congress. Each is paid $380 a month, a whopping salary for the 14-18 age group. The Page Corps goes back to 1827, when three boys were employed as "runners" for House members. Henry Clay and Daniel Webster appointed the first Senate page, Grafton D. Hanson, about the same time. A few former pages have been elected to Congress, including Rep. John Dingell of Michigan. 3ut Dingell doesn't recommend iis own page-boy antics as a pattern for future statesmanship. He and other pages used to startle ourists by putting cigarettes in he mouths of stone figures in statuary hall. (© 1963, Bell Syndicate, Inc.) Congressional Page Roys Most congressmen don't know it, but the congressional page corps is the last strong hold of segregation on Capitol Hill. Negroes are still excluded, despite the fact that the Supreme Court, just across the Capitol plaza, lifted the color line against Negro pages some years ago.

Amen. —W. Fred Primrose, Ogden, Utah, minister, First Congregational Church. <© 1863 by the Division of Christian Education, National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U. S. A.) those sections of the then existing law which had authorized the President to employ land or naval forces to aid in the execution of judicial processes. Explicitly Enjoined Congress, moreover, had explicitly enjoined the President and everybody else from using the military forces in any way to execute the laws unless specifically authorized to do so by the Constitution or an act of Congress. In other words, Cngress has prohibited the use of any part of the military forces as a "posse com- itatus" unless Congress says so. This leaves the executive branch of the government with no power to secure the enforcement of court orders by military force. It means that U.S. marshals can be used to arrest anyone who violates a court order. Such a person can be brought to trial and properly punished. But in the case of Little Rock, U. S. marshals were riot brought into the picture. They were intro- d u c e d at Oxford, Mississippi— as also were federal troops—but the argument used in defense of such a course was that an unlawful assemblage had occurred and disorder had prevailed inside the state of Mississippi which the governor allegedly refused to restrain. Gov. Wallace of Alabama, on the other hand, took particulat pains to prevent any unlawful assemblages or disturbances in connection with his announced in tetion to challenge the entry of Negro students to the University of Alabama. He endeavored to se cure a court test on the main is sue of constitutionality and wait ed for the U.S. marshals to serve him with papers and arrest him for contempt if he prevented the entry of Negro students into the university. President Kennedy, however, ordered the state militia federalized anyway so as to threaten the governor. Only a few days ago, the Supreme Court of the United States, in answer to a petition by Gov. Wallace of Alabama seeking to restrain such use of federal military power, stated that the movement of federal troops in to Alabama by the President had been "purely preparatory," and that the military forces of the federal government had not actually been used. Step Beyond The President, therefore, took on Tuesday a step beyond the recent Supreme Court ruling on the presence o( federal troops in Alabama. Although there was no disturbance or act of violent 1 .? at the University, Mr. Kennedy issued a proclamation directing the use of military force because he -•hose to regard the governor's irotcst and intent to take the issue; to court as being itself and "un- awful obstruction of justice." Doubtless a case will be irought some day to the Supremo "Jourt of (he United Stales in ivhich tho facts and circumstances surrounding the incident will >e cited in order to prove that there was an improper and unconstitutional use of federal troops to secure by intimidation the admission of Negro stuclfiits to the University of Alabama. Gov. Wallace in his own proclamation stated that the Constitution of the United States and the Tenth Amendment reserved to the states, respectively, or to the people, those powers not delegated to the United States nor prohibited to the states, and Iliat he believes the operation of the public - school system "is a power reserved to the State of Alabama under the Constitution of the United States and particularly the Tenth Amendment." (© 11)63. N.Y, Herald-Tribune, Inc.) Who changed the Constitution of United States? Both Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy sent federal troops into Arkansas and Mississippi without the request of governors in those states. Furthermore, they could not call the National Guards into federal service without the consent of Congress. Chief Justice Warren and Attorney General Kennedy have undertaken to tell the American people what they can do or what they cannot do. They are trying to enforce a controversial decision of the Supreme Court. When the school segregation case came before the court while Chief Justice Holmes was on the bench, the decision was that the public school system is an internal affair of a sovereign state over which the federal government had no jurisdiction. Again, when Chief Justice Taft was on the bench, the court decided the public school system i an internal affair, of a sovereig state over which the federal gov ernment has no jurisdiction. But now this court says unde the same . Constitution that th public school system is under th jurisdiction of the federal govern ment and can be dictated to ac cording to the whims of th Chief Justice and the Attorne; General. Now the Supreme Court ha gone so far as to tell us where we can pray and what we can pray. HARVEY E. THOMAS JR. 30 W. Penning Ave., Wood River (ED'S NOTE: The court said merely the governing body of a New York school district had no authority to write prayers that school children would be required to say.) Fable of the Land of Shell I would like to tell a story about a wide and prosperous land of Shell, in which there lived many ittle dragons who depended on :he land of Shell for their very existence. The land of Shell, in urn, was made prosperous hrough the efforts of these many ittle dragons. The Kingdom of Shell would sometimes have trouble with the more unruly and aggressive peon dragons, whereupon the little dragons would turn to their mother dragon for protection. The mother dragon was a monster with 13 heads. It is true that the monster was on occasion rather contrary and hard to get along with. Sometimes it even seemed that when one of her heads was cut off, two more would replace it. When this monster, during repeated injuries, roared her displeasure, there arose from the ranks of the ruling class a fair- haired prince who saw the folly of doing away with the mother dragon. He pointed out that, due to a process called evolution, this might bring forth the father of all little dragons in all the lands — even beyond Shell — who at the moment lay hibernating in his lair. Now this was a formidable dra gon, indeed, who has only on head, but he was much larger an fiercer and he would indeed b difficult to reckon with. Wisely, the ruler of Shell an his henchmen decided to foreg their attacks on the mother dra gon. She was even allowed t roar now and than when her chi dren were ill-used. Thus happ ness and prosperity continued t prevail in the wide land of She for many years. EMIL KANIA, 605 Wood River Ave., East Alton June 12>1938 State threats' to withdraw federal aid on two highway projects, if they were further delayed, prompted the Madison County Board to appropriate $25,000 in motor fuel taxes to purchase right-of-way for rebuilding Alton-East Alton road and re-locating U.S. Highway 40 around Troy. The right-of-way committee was instructed to begin negotiations on land for the four-lane 150-foot-wide highway. Some 2,800 feet of the 7,500 foot strip of highway would be re-located and would veer gradually southward, eliminating a sharp turn at the Milton Hill junction, "Freedom on the March," historical re-enactment of the trek from New England to the Northwest Territory, was presented at Rock Spring Park. The caravan, a duplicate of those used in the westward move, had begun its trip at Ipswisch, Mass., as the pioneers had done. Plans to form a health district co-extensive with the city were extended to embrace the school district here, for submission to a referendum in April of 1939. The tentative budget would be near $20,000. Members of the promoting Council's executive committee were Edward •Hartshorn, president; H, J. Homann, vice president; Dr. A. P. Robertson, secretary; Ed Stobbs, treasurer; and Dr. D. D. Monroe, H. C. Hellrung, and Miss Irene Giberson, directors. Dr. J. G. Schwarz was elected president of the Jerseyville Building & Loan & Homestead Association. George Seago was re-elected for his 41st term as secretary. H. B. Koeller and Henry Bachman of Godfrey, asparagus growers, returned from an ob- .servation tour of leading asparagus farms, and plant breeding and canning factories in New Jersey, where freezing of asparagus was still on. an experimental basis. A National Canning Association representative at the eastern farm predicted Illinois soon would hold the key position in the asparague freezing industry. Charles Baker was elected president of the Wood River Lions Club. Dennis A. Flinn, graduating after three years' law work at Washington College of Law, Washington, D. C., received the Sigma Delta Kappa Scholarship Key for maintaining the highest average in his class. June 12,1913 Construction ,of a mile of granitoid sidewalk on E. Second Street was ordered under a local improvement ordinance enacted by the city council, 13 to 1. Estimated cost of the project was $41,551. The ordinance called for 12-foot walks on both sides of the street from Market to Henry, and for 11-foot walks on north side from Henry *to Washington, and on the south side from Henry to Cherry Street. Cost estimate on the project was 25 cents a square yard. The council also passed an ordinance to tax and regulate street cars. It approved a contract with Kinloch Telephone Co. for installation of a flash-light telephone call system for the police department. Twenty-five stations were to be installed at cost of $22 each, and the city was to pay $500 a year as rental. Mayor J. C. Faulstich appointed Henry F. Cramer weighmaster at City Scale 4 and named Bert Rexford to fill a fire department va9ancy caused by resignation of William Zaugg. Twenty Alton butchers sought to force the city to make a test of the validity of its $100 license on meat markets by prosecuting only a single case — that already filed against Herb Bros. The market owners had petitioned. circuit court to restrain the city from a multiplicity of suits. City authorities had been threatening to sue all butchers individually. Lawyers for the meat shop owners were W. P. Boynton and Thomas Williamson. A throng of more than 1,000 crowded Alton high school auditorium for class day exercises of the June graduates. The program took the form of "The Last Class Meeting." Walter Wood presided as class president, and Miss Lucille Wightman served as secretary. Alton Storage & Hotel Co. was incorporated with capital stock of $50,000 by the Luer Brothers. The corporation was to take over the former Illinois Packing Co. site which the Luers already were improving with added cold storage facilities and a modern health resort hotel. The 45th annual picnic for the children of the North Alton school (McKinley) was held following a street parade headed by White Hussar Band. Oakwood Camp, MWA, led in sponsoring the event.

These studies, used in the formation of administration policies, hile financed by federal funds re made by private researcn organizations staffed with scientists university professors and former government officials — in mosl cases getting double their previous salaries. This extraordinary activity ol the Arms Control & Disarmament Agency, wholly unknown to the public, will be spotlighted in a forthcoming report by a House Appropriations subcommittee headed by Representative John Rooney, D-N.Y. The committee, probing the agency's request to more than double its budget from $6.5 million to $15 million, will reveal that most of the additional funds are to pay for the numerous studies already underway and others contemplated, including: "$100,000 for analyses of the activities of private peace groups and the effect they have on public opinion, and how they can be used to promote disarmament plans. This series of studies is designed to interpret public opinion for the Disarmament Agency. "$10,000 for the study of the operations and organization of the Soviet fiscal system and budget. This study arises from the fact hat budgetary control, as a disarmament measure, is under specific consideration by U.S. policymakers. "$150,000 for the examination of ilternative ways of handling con- licts between the U.S. and Russia. The purpose of this study is o examine basic factors which nfluence decisions that are made n situations of international con- lict. The Arms "$267,000 for study of the views of European leaders on security problems "and the military's influ ence in European government policy-making. "$354,000 for the study of design and evaluation of inspection systems for a ban on weapons of mass destruction in speace anc restrictions on missile testing. "$500,000 for examination of relationship between national political environments (Congress, the press and the public) and arm? control measures. "$610,000 for preliminary studies for measures for general arms control and disarmament." Striking It Rich The Rooney committee's inquiry uncovered the startling fact that the Disarmament Agency puts no limit on the salaries the private research groups, which get more than 90 per cent of their funds from the government, pay their officials. For example: The committee established that the Institute of Defense Analysis, one of the agency's favorite study organizations, pays Richard A. Bissell, pres- i d e n t, $45,000. Before joining I.D.A. Bissell was the director of "covert" operations of the Central Intelligence Agency, and the official who directed the ill-fated Bay of Pigs, invasion. Bissell's study outfit, which received more than $8 million in contracts from the Disarmament Agency and the Defense Department in the past year, has 243 employes, many of them former government officia-ls, with saiar- es ranging from $15,000 to $42,000. Aerospace, another research or- ;anization popular with the Disarmament Agency, pays Dr. Ivan A. Getting, Rhodes scholar and 'ormer head of a division at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, $75,000 as president. One of the incorporators of Aerospace when it was eslab- ished in 1960, was Deputy De- ense Secretary Roswell Gilpatric. He informed the House committee that he severed all ties with the concern when he joined the Kennedy Admiistration. Six other Aerospace officials receive from $30,000 to $50,000 a year. Other study groups with research contracts for the Disarmament Agency include: Bendix Company (500,000); Raytheon Corporation ($300,000); Mathematics Research ($57,000.1; Ame'rican Academy of Arts' & Sciences ($50,000); Institute of Strategic Studies ($50,000); Stanford Research Institutes ($267,688); Research Analysis Corporation ($177,300); Carnegie Corporation ($150,000); and Peace Research Institute ($10,000).
