PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1963 Editorial 3 Helpful Safety Laws Governor Kcrner has signed three bills — • all good — to promote safety of motor traffic. Perhaps most important, but the most difficult to enforce, is that requiring installation of safety belts in all new cars sold after June 30, 1 164. The problem will be to get people to use them consistently, l-'cw motorists who have scat belts installed in their cars use them except under extraordinary highway driving conditions. The belts can save motorists from harm and even death just as easily in slow- city traffic as on the speedier highway, and they should be used accordingly. Most motorists using them find them helpful in maintaining a restful posture, too — if that <• an item. Our readers shouldn't forget the high incidence of traffic tragedies which involve people within 24 miles of their homes, according to National Safety Council figures. The ban against use of parking lights by highway drivers should go a long way toward correcting an erroneous impression many motorists have preserved through the years: that they must preserve their batteries using their dimmer lamps. by Actually, the use of parking lights under dim lighting conditions, such as dusk or an overcast spell, is more dangerous than show- ii.g no lights at all. It can be deceptive to the approaching driver's judgment of distance. If you turn your lights on at all under these circumstances—and you should—use your regular driving lights. Now the state law will require it and state police can begin giving motorists the message. Motorcyclists will be protected, and so will automobile drivers, by the new law requiring these two-wheeled vehicles to show proper driving lights at night. "The legislature went as far as it could to help people preserve their lives and limbs. Now it's up to the folks, themselves, to begin observing these laws. :<. :;• * >!- ft Street Scrubber One thing about these gullcy-washer rains we've been getting the last week or so: They came just at a time when our street sweeper was out of commission and we needed a little cleaning up. New Emphasis to Challenge Announced plans of the National Association of Colored People for discussing demon- trations over their plight with regard to employment and housing should add emphasis to some words uttered at the Lovcjoy Memorial observance Sunday. J. L. Cannon, former city Human Relations Commission chairman, suggested on this occasion that a community committee of citizens representing a wide area of thought and experience, and selected on an inter-racial basis discuss Alton's problems in both these directions. One of the aspects of these problems which should not be omitted from the discussion, we believe, is the contribution toward relief by the entire area, not the city alone. This is not suggested with- the idea of evasion. Alton has a grave responsibility. But some of our neighbors haven't even made the first indication of approaching the problem. Alton perhaps owes it to these neighbors to demonstrate how the problem could be alleviated. We do not say solved, because we know that nothing ever gets completely solved to the satisfaction of everyone. Another aspect of the problem is a greater interest on the part of all, including those who are suffering from at least a deficiency of housing, in such phases of urban renewal as would case the situation. Employment is another problem. We have said before; we will repeat: The community must obtain the assistance of an agency that can thoroughly evaluate both the requirements of jobs and the qualifications of the area's unemployed for those jobs before we can point the finger too sharply at what may be regarded as offenders. This, at least, would bring us face to face with the question of whether an employer must make concessions in providing a proportionate number of jobs for all races, or whether we must face the embarrassing situation that employers have been rejecting competent workers because of race; or whether we must concede a difference in employable ratio between the races. If there must be a concession to relative cmployability, then it would be time to evolve a program for improving the balance in this respect—or again concede for the time being that some less employable must be hired in the hopes that they will in the future improve. We appeal to the NAACP to approach this problem constructively, and to avoid action that might stir up indignation and anger on both sides. We believe folks here will be sufficiently effected by what they see in the South, as well as in some other northern cities, to be led toward action. But we appeal for the constructive action on all fronts. . Numbers-Weary Telephone numbers are lengthening. The Post Office Department long has required zone numbers in our addresses. Now we're getting ZIP numbers for even smaller cities and they're running into five digits. There's one advantage about these increasingly irksome assignments of numbers to everyone. We'll get so tired of the kind of numbers game we have to play to live, we'll scream when the gambling gentry suggest we play their game. Notes on Books at Library "The Twisted Image," By Arthur Goodfriend — Reporting on two years' experience as a Public: Affairs Officer with the 'Jnit- co States Information Agency in India the author measures t h e Agency's actual operations against its staled mission. In his analysis the Agency addressed itself almost exclulvely to an ed- icated elite, in the belief that if he people on top could be convinced, the masses would follow. Too often in our films and exhib- ts the Indian who eked out his ex- stcnce on an income averaging one dollar a week was shown lh<? atest gleaming example of pushbutton efficiency. This he was :old, represented "Life in America." Instead of appealing to the :ommon people, it stunned them with American wealth and strangeness. This account illus- Lrates the complexity of the prob- ems confronting the USIA.

Mr. G. B. S., A Portrait," By Janet Dunbur — When Charlotte Frances Payne-Townshend and George Bernard Shaw were married at the Strand Registry Office in June 1989, everyone — including the bride and groom was taken by surprise. G.B.S. was forty- two, an irrepressible philanderer; Charlotte, six months younger, lad seemed an unassailable spinster. After their marriage, Charlotte stepped back into the shadows, leaving the spotlight on her husband,so that tew ever knew her very well. Now, in this entertaining biography, she reveals svhy, throughout their long years of marriage, she never ceased to fascinate that most fascinating of Irish wits. "The Aliseducution of American Teachers," By James D, Koerner —In this progress Mr. Koerner sets out to answer some necessary questions. Who is the American teacher? How is he educated for his job? What is the influence of state certification? What forces act to bring talented people into the profession -- and to keep them out? What can be done to improve the quality of our teachers? This book pulls no nineties. It discusses with equal >bjectivity the colleges which orce their students through mean- ngless courses, the savants who ;rant Doctorates in Education or age of controversy and in American education, THE LITTLE WOMAN © Xing fulurti Syndlctt 6-15 "Well, if it's a wrong number, why did you answer the phone?" Readers Forum Walks Under the Trees He was 50 years old when we met. He was away from home when my coming was imminent- over across the Macoupin. And the water was out over all the valley. So he swam a horse across the water and arrived in time to tear me announce my arrival. He sat out the night beside my mother and me, then left at daybreak a conscientious wore on, and, as happens between father and child, we became friends. He had his faults, and I had mine, but he was often my guide and counselor. He took me on walks with him, told me of trees and birds, and when we were tired, we'd sit on a rail fence together and he'd tell be of his boyhood, his mother's early death and his lonley —for he was breadwinner. Then years life. Then we'd go home and mother would tell me how glad she was that I walked with Dad as he didn't see well. I was 25 when his call came. Uncomplainingly he lay in his last illness and quietly, at last, went out. Life seemed strange without him. Long years have passed, but he never seems far away. Life runs in a circle, so I trust that some day we can resume our svalks under the trees in the far Country where he, mother, and many friends wait. It would be wonderful if all oi us could realize early and remember long that Dad and Moth er deserve our best, as they ever gave their best. G. REYNOLDS Kane Press the Crown Firmly WASHINGTON — Though few seem to have noticed it, what happened in the Peruvian elections may go down as the slickest piece of political sleight of hand in recent Latin American history. By it, the Peruvian military are going to have their cake and eat it too. Last year, when Victor Raul Haya de la Torre came out ahead in the balloting - but failed to get the 33.33 per cent of votes required for a clear win — the military first tried to keep the decision from going to Congress, as the Constitution provides, by charging fraud in two depart ments. Hardly by coincidence, these were the states of Ancash and Cajamarca, where Haya and his APRA party have had overwhelming strength for more than years. Unofficial returns from military establishment in Latin America. Fear of such loss, not their pub- stated concern thai anti- Communist Haya would he too •adical, was behind the army-air force-navy takeover. The junta they set up ruled by decree for a year, trying meanwhile to pressure Haya's supporters to get behind another candidate. When that failed, they came up with the elaborate plot pulled off last Sunday. Blank Paper Ballots In the departments of Ancash and Cajamarca, local election officials found only blank paper in the neatly - wrapped packages supposed to contain ballots. This was uniformly true at every polling place throughout the two states. Preparation, printing, and dis Intuition of ballots all over Peru better than ever when the rerun takes place in the two states, enough-discouraged Aprislas will switch their voles or stay home. Thus B e 1 a u n de will probably squeak in. If so, Peru's generals and admirals can breathe a deep sigh of relief.

This was when the brass hats stepped in, fired President Manuel Prado and nullified the election results.

However, what the military men are obviously counting on—arid what the U.S. seems to be helping along — is the feeling among politics-weary Peruvians that Belaunde is the victor and they may as well go along with him. Indirect U.S. Intervention An unnamed but official spokesman for the U.S. embassy in Lima has given this idea a big boost by already telling newsmen how this country hopes to collaborate happily with Belaunde, how pleased we are that the junta brought off a nice, clean election on schedule, etc., etc. In view of this, the chances are I (0 nxi.'i.

MILLER Rte. 1, Jerseyville The writing of this letter gives me the opportunity to try to pay homage to the little known, and seldom acknowledged king of our family realm, Father. When daughter just must have new formal for that special dance, Father's old suit goes to the cleaners instead of the rummage sale. And he really doesn't need that fishing tackle he's been saving for —not if Buddy needs an extra loan to see him through the college semester, or maybe help pay or a new rug for the living oom. In the face of ever-mounting axes and the high cost of living, e pauses only long enough to alance the load a little more irmly on his shoulders. He umps" the sandlot game, helps n the Boy Scout work in his dis- rict, and rings doorbells and tele- ihones in the polio, Heart Fund, and community drives. All this, and much more, your ather and my father, do, year in, and year out, without complaint. So don't let his shiny suit and worn shoes fool you. The crown lie wears is not visible to the eye but few households, wives, and children, could get along without it. So when you place that crown on his head Sunday, be sure you place it firmly enough to stay :here forever. And please, children, omit the slang phrase, "The old man" and restore your dignity (and his) with two beautiful words: "My Father." LUCY E.

A 25 and 50 Years Ago June 15,1938 More than 10,000 persons attended the pageant presented in Rock Spring Park by the Pioneer Caravan sponsored by the Federal Government, and moving westward along the trail oi the Northwest Territory. Ending its journey on Oct. 12 at Belpre, Ore., the caravan was expected to "play" to 57,000,000 persons along the route. Robert Cope, serving In the U. S. Coast Guard in Connecticut, was expected to be joined at the New London School by his brother Irvin, enlisted in the U.S. Navy six months before. Returning from attendance at Illinois Synod in Champaign were the Rev. E. E. DeLong, stated clerk of Alton Presbytery, who served as assistant clerk on the state level; the Rev. E. J. Vance, pastor of Alton's First Presbyter- Ian Church, who served on the committee for bills and overtures; P. S. Cousley, named to the committee on mileage and finance; and the Rev. Carl L. Attig, Edwardsvllle pastor, who, as 1936-37 synod moderator, served on the general council of the 1938 meeting. Dr. Austin K. deBlois of Philadelphia, president emeritus of the Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary, received an honorary citation at the 13th annual convocation of the Brown University Graduate School. Dr. deBlois had been president of Shurtleff College from 1894 to 1899. Seven children and 13 grandchildren of the late John W. Schmidt of Alton shared in the $37,000 estate admitted to probate. Four institutions also sharing the estate were St. Mary's Church, St. Anthony's Infirmary, Catholic Children's Home, and St. Vincent dePaul Society. Roy Wesley of Cottage Hills suffered slight burns in an auto gas tank explosion in front of St. Cin grocery store on Hillcrest avenue. The explosion occurred when he attempted to light his pipe several minutes after the gas tank was filled. Dr. D. M. Roberts, state vice president; Dr. H. I. Allen, president of the Alton Club; A. P. Stuart, Firman Yoder, W. 0. Frederick, Norvell Wilson and Walter Stobbs were named delegates to the state convention of Exchange Clubs in Quincy. Setting of four tanks for the water softening plant at Alton Water Co. was under way, with completion expected for Sept. 1. June 15,1913 Ernani Trenchety, operating the Fluent motor boat, Hades, rescued five men after the skiff in which they were returning from a fishing trip overturned near the swing-span of the railroad bridge. The five clung to their capsized rowboat until the motor launch took them aboard. Aiding Trenchery were L. K. Landls and J. R. Williams. Rescued were George Forbes, Philip Mitchell, and William Vincent of Alton, and two St. Louisans. After reaching the Fluent dock, the group made up a purse of $100 which they offered Trenchery. He refused to accept any reward. The Bunker Hill bank of Belt Bros. & Co. was to close its doors, and over the weekend a creditors' committee was set up to examine the books and determine the bank's condition. On the committee were R. E. Stanford, James Jencks, William Fahrenkrog, and T. A. Baker. Anthony Jannus, in his Benoist hydroplane, made an experimental 24-mile flight from Merchants bridge, St. Louis to Alton harbor In 18 minutes. He had followed the river in his flight. With the aviator were Harry Herb, Alton business man, and a St. ^ Louis salesman, L. E. Gowin. Capt Alex Lamont, 85-year-old steamboat master, had been appointed as pilot of the state steamboat Illinois, recently assigned to Alton division of Naval Reserves. Lamont was believed to be the oldest active steamboat captain on the Mississippi. Presently, under federal regulations, the Str. Illinois could carry no arms or ammunition,, and militiamen on using the craft would have to go unarmed. The Alton reserves were to have their annual 10-day training cruise on the steamboat, starting July 2. Some of the residents on the eastward extension of College Avenue voiced objection to the plan to have the car line extension to the state hospital built along the south side of the road instead of in the center. Members of Alton lodge of Elks sponsored an evening patriotic program in observance of Flag Day. Frank Hurford read the story of the flag, and J. B. Steck was the speaker. Wheat harvesting moved into its second day in Alton area. Among the first to begin cutting were farmers along the sandridge near East Alton. Among them were Walter Fox, Barthold Schmid, Frank Berry, Will Mclntosh, and George Henry. The Allen-Scott Report Harriman Slated for Important Task WASHINGTON — When Averell | policy paper prepared for the Na- '' ional Security Council by Dr. Harriman goes to Moscow next month on his momentous mission o negotiate a nuclear test ban igreement, he will be undertak- ng another equally important but unannounced assignment. At the personal orders of Pres- dent Kennedy, the 71-year-o 1 d diplomatic troublcshooter will sound out Premier Khrushchev on the creation of a new agency o conduct deliberations to case he cold war. This sensational proposal, under closely-guarded consideration by the President and his top foreign policy advisers for several months, calls for the establishment of an East-West commission to "reduce tensions, promote stability, dampen military crises, and reduce the risk of war." A key aspect of the administration's "grand design" for reaching an entente with Russia, the new international body would be used as a forum for private talks between the U.S. and Russia on tension areas around the world- such as Cuba, Laos, Berlin, South Vietnam and the Middle East. The President's plan provides !or discussion between the U.S., Russia and Britain to determine he membership and size of the commission. As envisioned by the President and his advisers, the commission would be set up outside the United Nations but would keep that organization informed of its activities. One particular objective of the proposed commission would be to use the influence of its members, especially the U.S. and Russia to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons by other nations Significant Details These and other still-secret features of President Kennedy's unique proposal are detailed in a Walt Rostow, head of.the State Department Planning Council. This highly important document is being used as one of the main working papers for the forthcoming Moscow negotiations. The Rostow paper places great emphasis on the "fresh start" in East-West negotiations that t h e President advocated in his speech last week at American University. "Even if the Soviets," states the policy paper, "do not share the U.S. image of the future of the world in the degree necessary to negotiate major arms reduction programs and binding settlements on the German problem, they may come to recognize the danger to their security of accidental miscalculation of our policies and failure of communications in time of crisis, and thus be willing to join the U.S. in limited measures to reduce those dangers. "Such measures might include advance notification of military movements, creation of some facilities for direct communication beteen national military command centers, and establishment of an international commission to reduce the 'risk of war in which the U.S. and the USSR would consider, with other nations, further steps to promote stability, reduce tensions, dampen military crisis, and minimize the need for hasty military responses." Outlining the procedure that U. S. negotiators should take in approaching the Kremlin on t h c n e w commission proposal, t h e paper counsels that, "The U.S. should even before such a commission is proposed (in public) seek out opportunities informally to discuss such measures with the USSR to try to alert Russian officials to the importance and na- ture of the problem to which the commission could devote itself." Hidden Factor The crucial influence that the nuclear policies of General de Gaulle and Red China played in determining the President to seek a test ban accord with Russia is clearly evident in the Rostow paper, as follows: "One of the historical I rends which may lead to widened areas of U.S.-USSR understanding and common action warrants special policy attention. The diffusion of power and authority away from Moscow within the Communist bloc, and away from the U.S. within the free community, presents to both sides the possibility of situations arising in in which either a Soviet or an American ally may try to inflame a given situation and thus engage for its own benefit the prestige of the two major powers. "To prevent any sueh situation from arising and leading to an unsought dangerous direct confrontation is in the common interest of both the U.S. and the USSR and should be one of the specific and priority purposes of meaningful communications and negotiations." The policy paper warns that, "The form of diffusion of power potentially most dangerous to both the Soviet Union and the U. S. is the spread of nuclear weapons, especially to Communist China and France." The point is stressed that a U. S.-Soviet understanding on a test ban would be the first step t.) block proliferation of nuclear weapons to other nations. We should welcome temporary and p a r t la 1 accommodations or entente with the USSR in this area." (© 19B3, The Hnll Syndicate, Inc.) MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY from psychotic patients was injected into monkeys, they experienced great difficulty in following routines which they had previously learned to carry out, In many cases, routine tasks that Were completed in 90 minutes took up to five hours. Monkeys injected with normal blood did not experience this difficulty. Can you htinid just NO much? Answer: Yes, but your breaking point may vary from time to time. Most people have what might be called an emotional stress limit, beyond which they experience acute anxiety and discomfort. This does not indicate abnormality, but simply that t h e Individual's farthest point of adjustment, at that particular time, is about to be overrun. When this pattern of acute stress begins to be felt, it is time for the individual to make a strategic withdrawal. It* mental lllimss Infectious?

Children take their cues from parents, and a working mother who is happy and well-satisfied, and has a loving attitude toward her children, will find them developing the same healthy attitudes toward life. When working mothers feel and act as though their children have good reason to object, the more likely the children will be to do so,
