PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 1963 Editorial Perseverence Has Its Reward Closely coordinated efforts of several area agencies to inject new blood into the community's economic stream have be.min to pa)- off. Recently a large motel chain announced it was ready to build extensive accommodations on the old Lucr packing company site. But even more dramatic announcement came Wednesday. The Air Reduction Co. of New York disclosed plans to locate a $9 million dollar plant in the immediate Alton area. The decision came only after long and patient operations by three prime industry hunters of the area: The Greater Alton Association of Commerce, the Union Electric- Co., and Illinois Power Co. How many "good words" for the community might have been spoken meanwhile when local industrial folks got inquiries is a question to challenge the imagination. Most local industrialists indicate from time to time they were willing to speak good words for the community's business and industrial "climate." Meanwhile, Air Reduction already was building up a limited local experience through operation of a small plant. Tremendous informational detail is necessary in industrial recruiting operations. Some of it may be quite general, quickly obtainable. Some may be quite specific and require some time to assemble. An illustration: Air Reduction had tried for some time through state authorities to get certain information on regulations and law that would affect the firm's operations. The queries hit Springfield during the legislature rush. At least one of them should have been sent to Chicago. In the end the Alton area promoters, when they learned of the deficiency, went to Springfield and got the information directly from the proper officials there. One of these trips was made only last Monday. The local agencies, too, have been able to unravel some problems of physical operation for Air Reduction. The firm knew, for instance, it would have to unload a 100 ton piece of equipment from a barge. Where could the necessary equipment be found for this task. GAAC files showed the largest derrick in the area had but a 50-ton capacity. But Union Electric folks came up with a suggestion: Illinois Terminal's "wrecker" used to handle locomotives and lift them about, So arrangements arc being made to run the IT's wrecker on tracks alongside the barge and unload the apparatus. Tracks must be built into the plant site to deliver the apparatus. These are some of the countless problems which the GAAC and other cooperating agencies in the community have been working on for months since the Association undertook its all out drive to improve the community's economic picture with more industrial jobs. Yet most of the work must be done quietly, without fanfare, to avoid tipping off the competition and even, sometimes, to protect real estate negotiations. Some of the firms involved in past procedure already have decided to go elsewhere. We missed by a hair or two occasionally in the tremendous intercity competition for industry. The efforts have taken much of the GAAC staff's time. At least in the case of Air Reduction and the motel installation, the push is beginning to pay off. We believe these agencies now will be more clearly recognized for what they are accomplishing, and perhaps arouse more interested support. Awakening to an Urgent Need Slaying of Medger W. Evers NAACP leader, at Jackson, Miss, only serves to underline President Kennedy's urgent appeal of Tuesday night for quick congressional action on civil rights legislation. It should only put to shame those Congressmen from the South who have been warning that there will be filibusters, despite warnings that "dead men will lie in the streets" if there are. One man already has "lain in the street" at Jackson, Miss. This should awaken Congress and -the nation, alike, to the realization that business long overdue has been put off overlong, and that it's high time something be done about it. We can sympathize with the South and its sporadic high percentage of Negro population. We understand its plight because -we in the North have similar situations. And we now are beginning to get the same results as the southern hot spots have developed — picketing, violence, overcrowded jails, and more protests. Our trouble is that we have put off for too long the things we knew all along should have been done: The better education of Negroes, the closer and more frequent contact between them and whites on a level of dignity capable of making their cultures parallel instead of clashing; the resultant better opportunities for equal employment and resultant better homes. Our problem through the years has not been the Negro, but rather the white man's continued tendency to hold him out of partnership and consequently keep him back. These things we should realize now, though it has taken some measure of violence to knock them into our heads on a broad scale. For the violence could well build up hatred and prejudice that will make remedial measures more difficult. This, now, is the reason why Congress must act — act speedily, and act wisely along lines the President has urged, and in areas he has cited. Only when we see these things legislated, rather than emanating from the United States Supreme Court's interpretation of what it believes is existing law will the country truly begin to accept enforcement. Prepare Tomorrow is Flag Day. We never had any parades to celebrate it. "No one has made speeches about the sacrifice of life on the battlefield. Yet it marks the birthday of the flag which we respect as the emblem of our nation. It is the emblem in more respects than one. It represents not only the sacrific, purity, and truth of which we like to think as inherent traits of the naiton. But in its field of stars it represents and tells constantly of our growth. Herein is a feature which perhaps no other flag in the world includes. It shows, one by one, the number of states added to the nation through the new stars that dot its field of blue. Currently Flag Day can serve as a reminder of not only the flag's birthday — but perhaps of our lack of a flag in our home. Today, look for that flag. If you have one, hang it out tomorrow. If you don't, do something about that, too, before July 4, Independence Day. Drew Pearson's Merry~Go~Round Problems of World War Left Over Editor's Note—Drew Pearson's column today takes the form of a letter to his eldest grandson, Drew Arnold. Washington, D. C. June 11, 1963 Dear Grandson, I have just come back from the class reunion at Swarthmore that you weren't able to attend. You were probably right in not coming, because my friends were much too old for you, though they would have enjoyed meeting you. I had to make a speech before my old classmates, which is always hard to do, because they know you so well. But before I made it, I looked up some records of what was going on when I was in college just at the end of World War I. And since these are tilings you may have to worry about some day, I thought I would write you about them. Looking through the college paper, the Phoenix, which I edit ed, I found in the issue ot June 9, 1919, a letter from a student, in the army, William Tomiinson, written from St. Nazaire, France. "There seems to have been some friction between U.S. sold iers and French civilians," he said. "A small riot took place during which some Americans and more Frenchmen were shot. Negro stevedores from the quartermasters office do all the loading on the docks and French ci vilians can't get jobs." The letter reminded me that today, 44 years later and after a second World War, we are still having problems with France, though the Negro problem has moved back to the United States. Bayonets vs. Muss Murder I also read in the same issue ol the college newspaper: "Pro- 'essor William I. Hull returned 'rom his trip abroad working vith the peace conference, May 31. Dr. Hull will only say that in lis opinion there are in the peace reaty 33 good points and 39 bad points... .The treaty must be imended, or the 39 bad points cut out." Prof. Hull was a Quaker teacher of history who used to teach me, and what he predicted turned out to all too true. The peace treaty, signed after World War I, failed. We fought another war, and we are now trying to make the second peace treaty work. If we can't make it work, you and other boys of your age may find yourselves fighting a third war- one which you had nothing to do with bringing on but which you will have to fight anyway — sim- Allon Evening Telegraph Published Dally by Alton Telegraph Priming Company P.

The Congress of the United itates passed a law a number of •ears ago which was formally evised on Aug. 10, 1956, staling l the National Guard could be ailed into federal service when- ver the United States "is invad- d or is in danger of invasion by foreign nation." or whenever there is a rebellion or danger >f a rebellion against the authori- y of the government of the Unit- d States," or whenever the pres- dent "is unable with the regulai orces to execute the laws of the United States." This same law — section 3500, Hie 10 of the U.S. Code — de- ines explicitly how the state mili- ia shall be federalized. It pro- ides that the president "may call ito federal service members and nits" of the National Guard of ny state, but says that "orders or these purposes shall be issued irough the governors of the tales." Inquiry at the office of Govern- r Wallace at Montgomery, .Ala- ama, has brought forth the in- ormation that Mr. Wallace did ot receive any order from the •deral government to federalize he militia of the State of Ala- ama.

Perhaps you should have (come with me to the class reunion so as to have cheered me up. Nevertheless these are things we have to lace. However, I am not as discouraged us 1 sound — for this reason: war has become so horrible that the strongest nations — Russia and the United Stales — are worried about it and the responsible leaders are leaning over backward to avoid it. (© 1!>63, Bell Syndicate, Inc.) What happened, of course, was lat the federal authorities sent le order directly to the state mi- tia and by-passed the governor. Jut this is not what the law re- uires, nor does it carry out the pirit of the Constitution itself in elation to the use of the militia a sovereign state, as the gov- rnor, of course, is te command- r-in-cliief of the militia. Not 'In Rebellion' The governor of the State of Albania, moreover, was not "in ebellion" against the federal overnment, but simply testing a ourt order to determine its con- titutionality. The proper proce- ure for the federal government as to have U.S. marshals serve n order on the governor. If he efused to obey it, the federal gov- rnment could carry out the usual egal processes to bring him to rial on contempt charges. If he ere convicted, then punishment ould be meted out by the court. President Kennedy, in his ad- ress to the nation on Tuesday ight, made quite a point of the mportance of conforming to law. He himself, however, had just disregarded not only the statute n connection with the federaliza- ion of the militia, but also — as pointed out in these dispatches esterday — another federal statute which specifically forbids the use of either the army or the tate militia as a "posse comita- us" to execute court orders. The only way that a court ord- • can be legally enforced is by United States marshals. If the marshals are attacked and an insurrection against the United States government ensues, the president would then have author- ty to call in federal troops. Mr. •Cennedy, in his television speech on Tuesday night, said: "One hundred years of delay nave passed since President Lincoln freed the slaves, yet their heirs, their grandsons, are not fully free. They are not yet freed from the bonds of injustice." But in those "one hundred years of delay," the Supre me Court of the United States has been handing down decisions which have been accepted by many people as "the law of the land." It was not until 1896, how ever, that the first case involving the segregation issue under the Fourteenth Amendment was rais cd for decision by the Supreme Court of the United States. The High Court ruled then — in t h e famous case of "Plessy V. Fer guson". . .that "separate but equ al" facilities fulfilled the "equa protection" clause of the Four teentli Amendment for purpose, of transportation. This was inter preted in subsequent decisions o the Supreme Court to mean tha "separate but equal" facilities ii other fields — including public schools and colleges — were al so constitutional. Cliullcngud It In the 58 years preceding 1954 Negro leaders and their lawyers challenged from time to time the correctness of the Supreme Court decision of 189G. Were the Negro leaders violating "the law of the land" by challenging that decision? Was the Supreme Court itself guilty of "delay" in the 58 years from 1896 to 1954 when it failed to accept the contention that the public schools should be desegregated? If the Negro leaders had not challenged the decisions and had not refused to accept as final the rulings which kept Negroes out of certain st'hools, there never would have been eases brought before the Supreme Court to furnish the basis for the 1954 desegregation decision that reversed the 1896 ruling. The President's proposal for "civil rights" legislation in connection with segregation is t h e first that has been proposed by a chief executive since the Supreme Court in 1954 ordered desegregation of the public schools. (© JUC3, N.V. Herald-Tribune, inc.) As a resident of Alton for 37 years (although I spent the last 5 years living in Florida but took the Telegraph while away— reading the pros and cons of the police department's troubles) I would like to add my say. Decoration Day, 1963, while we were visiting at our son's residence in North Alton, our o',i>year-old grandson was bitten by a neighbor's dog. We called the police immediately, and in about an hour and a half an officer drove up in a squad car. After the dog bite troubles had been taken care of and the child was taken to the hospital to receive an anti-tetanus shot, f was talking to the officer about some —to me— queer charges placed against drivers who were apparently driving while intoxicated. A driver crashes into a parked car, a utility pole, or a fire plug. The charges accordig to the Tele- charges according to the Telegraph are reckless or careless driving and intoxication. My question to the officer was and still is why? Why not driving while intoxicated? Why such silly charges? The officer explained that police know that if they ed that police know that if is going to go the limit to beat the charge, while if they file the lesser charges, he is more likely to plead guilty in police court and pay his fine. When the state of Illinois passes a law requiring the applicant for a drivers license — new or renewed— to • have on the application a clause in which the applicant will state that as a condition of the issuing of a drivers license, he will submit to a blood, urine or breathalizer test, and be taken directly to a hospital for such tests, then we will be getting some place in eliminating drunken driving. T. L. DICKERSON PO. Box 57 West Alton, Mo. Distasteful to Those Who Lost Memorial Day is celebrated by many in a way that is distasteful to the many who have loved ones in forgotten graves. A little story was told to this vriter today. A letter was writ- .en to the City asking that the cemetery at Milton be cleaned up and the grass cut. This day of all, the City of Alton should have extended the most for the hallowed ground of the veterans of all v&rs. But refused for lack of unds. Is this too much to ask of the city to honor their cherished sons vho died to preserve the Ameri- 'an way of life. A few dollars to clean up the cemetery one day a year? A retired couple by the name of Jones took $60 of their own money to get the grass cut in the Milton Cemetery for the Memor- al Day annual "Taps" by the arious veterans organizations. These kind americans showed he spirit that, others have for- gotten. It is a sad part of our life that sons and fathers died to preserve he American way of life only to De forgotten and denied the simple respect due them. To die in defense of one's coun- ry is an honor, but to be forgot- en by those whom he defended s a disgrace. One time a year, a day is set aside to remember all our honored dead from the Civil War to the present. Everything should be done to honor these hallowed heroes of American history.

Yesterday's Oryptoquip: HI-FI AND STEREO OFTEN HAV8 FEVERED ADHERENTS. 25 and 50 Years Ago June 13,1938 Dr. Paul Lamont Thompson, resigned president of Shurtleff College, was named chairman of a committee to select a new head for the school. Others named were Dr. J. D. Eliff, Columbia, Mo., Alton Supt. of Schools, W. R. Curtis, and the Rev. Dr. C. C. Johnson of St. Louis. Named to fill vacancies on the faculty was a committee of Dr. H. VV. Davis, G. A. McKinney, Supt. Curtis, and President Thompson. Richard Roberts, 16, of Maples, Mo., was moved to St. Joseph's Hospital for amputation of one of his feet, after falling under a C. B. & Q. Railroad freight at West Alton, Mo. He and u companion were traveling in search for work. Hopes for the Alton parkway fill were dimmed when Congress adjourned without receiving the Army Engineers report in time to include it in the rivers and harbers bill. Mrs. Ella Coyle, wife of P.W. Coyle, died in Washington, D.C., while the couple visited their daughter, Mrs. Fred J. Bates. Heavy clouds accompanied by greenish cast in electric lights, headlights, and show window lights caused apprehension of another "blow", but the storm failed to materialize. City Engineer Abraham and Streets Foreman Eisner held their crews in readiness for the storm. Porter J. Campbell was re-affirmed as postmaster at Hardin. Dogs were inoculated and licenses issued at Alton police station at the rate of one every five minutes, as fast as the job could be done, in a rush to beat the opening day of a drive on delinquent dog owners. Ninety-three dogs had been inoculated in one day. H. F. Shields was named president of the Medora Barbecue Association. Stone blasting on the steep drop of Grand avenue at the river front roadway intersection near Alton Water Co. had started. The stone removed would be used for protective work at points where grading and filling had been done. Honey bees which had settled in a tree near the site of Grace M. E. Church social were removed by the pastor, the Rev. F. M. Hedger, who hastily constructed a hive to receive them. His brother-in-law, John Gullic, sawed the bee- laden tree branch and lowered it to the pastor. June IB, 1913 Wood River highway commissioners had been called to meet and consider granting of a franchise for an extension of the Alton car line frail the east end of College Avenue to Bethalto. For the present, the traction company planned to construct the line only as far as the Edward Rodgers place in the state hospital tract. Contractor Henry Wardeln began erection of a 9-room brick residence for George 3* Mllnor at 4th and George Streets. The electrical distribution system for Alton Steel Co's. plant was completed by Alton Gas & Electric Co., and was cut into service by Supt 0. C. Macy. For the first time an aircraft had made an emergency landing at Alton. A hydroplafle headed from St. Louis to Chicago put down here lot a soldering job on an engine rod. The plane was piloted by D. W. Isemlnget, 23, of the Benoist Aircraft Co. of St. Louis. With him was the well-known flyer, Tony Jannus. The June class of 1913 was graduated from Alton high school at exercises In the school auditorium where the Rev. A. A. Tanner, a former Alton Congregational pastor, made the address. ( An 80-year-old frame building on E. 2nd Street, near Ridge, was being razed to make way for a new structure. The old building had been owned prior to the civil war by Herman Brueggemann, father of Postmaster Henry Brueggemann. In late years it had been occupied by the Thiele barber shop and F. J. Thiele's machine shop. William L. Sachtleben, son of a former Alton clothier, and a round-the-world cyclist in the 90's, stopped here for a visit with friends when en route to New York on a business trip. He was presently manager of a theater in Houston, Tex. Wood River's Famous Forty Band and members of the new volunteer fire department made plans for joint sponsorship of a July 4 street parade and a public picnic. The street car men's local union elected as officers A. L. Dolbow, Samuel Foreman, Marshal Bailey, Bert Page, Henry Niederkorn, Howard Welch, George Walker, John Krug, Ed Loarts, Marion Bailey, Herman Ktmpp, and Harvey Moore. The Allen-Scott Report Justice William Douglas Not Retiring WASHINGTON — Justice Wiliam O. Douglas has a big surprise for the White House, cer- ain of his judicial colleagues and i number of others. The militant New Dealer is definitely not retiring in October, vhen he becomes 65 and eligible o quit with full pay for life. Federal judges can go on the "inac- ive roll" with full pay at 65 after .5 years' service, or at 70 after 10 years on the bench. Supreme Court justices receive $35,000 a year. Recently there 'have been "numerous reports that Douglas would leave the bench when he reached 65. They are wholly without substance. He is in excellent health, as vigorous and spirited as ever, and ms no intention of quitting in the oreseeable future. One important •eason is that Douglas does not nropose to create a Supreme lourt vacancy before the 1964 election. To put it bluntly, he feels that under such circumstances politics would largely determine the selection of his successor. When Douglas does retire, he does not expect to be consulted on lis replacement. But he also does not intend to do anything himself to unduly open the way to "play politics" with his Supreme Court seat. As a skeptic, Douglas has no illusions that President Kennedy and particularly his ambitious 37- year-old brother, the Attorney General, would be above doing that. He has known both for a long time. This summer, Douglas is going to Africa to look over the work of 'Operations Crossroads Inc.' He is one of the founders and a director of this organization, a privately financed and operated peace corps that has been in .existence since 1958. The Kennedy administration's world - publiciz- ed Peace Corps grew out of Operation Crossroads. Since 1958, it has sent some 765 youths to African countries as teachers and technicians. This year more than 350 volunteers are joing there. Funds of the organ- zation come from churches and individuals. In the fall, Douglas will publish another book titled "Mr. Lincoln and the Negro. It's a study of the Emancipation Proclamation and events leading up to it and since then. Oldest member of the Supreme Court is Justice Hugo Black, 77. He ( too, has no intention of resigning. Black has been on the bench since 1937, and has been eligible to retire for years. But he is in vigorous health, and still [>lays a brisk game of tennis. Chief Justice Earl Warren is 72, and also could retire. He has no thought of doing so, particu- .arly while under fire by conservatives demanding his "impeachment." The Court will wind up its pre- Today's Prayer O Thou Who art the rock on which alone men may build their lopes, without Thee there is no foundation for our faith, no meaning to our existence.

That is around $6,000 more than he said he returned to the government when this column disclosed that the highest-paid employe on his congressional payroll was a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin, who had never done a lick of work in Proxmire's Washington Office. Frank J: Campenni, 33, was listed as Proxmire's "legislative assistant" at $14,596 — about $1,000 more than the average full Wisconsin professor gets. It's still a mystery how and why Proxmire hired Campenni at this high pay while a fulltime graduate student seeking a doctorate in English at Wisconsin. University. When this was exposed, Proxmire hurriedly announced Campenni was being taken off his payroll forthwith, and that Proxmire was paying back some $9,000 to the government that Campenni had received in salary. Now t h a n k s to 600 paying guests at $25 each at his fundraising shindig, Proxmire is once more in the black — with $6,000 for his highly uncertain re-elec- tin battle next year. There were vcw expenses at the party. Much of the food and all the beer were provided gratis by Wisconsin concerns — ostensibly to advertise their cheese, sausage, sauerkraut, etc. In talks with friends, Proxmire is soft-pedaling the fund-raising aspect of the affair. He is euphemistically referring to it as a "testimonial" — doubtless to his strenuous efforts to put it over. (© 1963, The Hall Syndicate, Inc.) MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY mother.
