(AP Wirephoto Map) Bar to Hear Two Debate Big Issue EDWARDSVILLE - A Florida Supreme Court Justice and a St. Louis attorney will be the principals in a debate to be held near here next week on three proposed amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Ben-Gurion Quits Post In Israel By ERIC GOTTGETRBU JERUSALEM, Trraeli (AP)—David Ben-Gurion, prime minister almost continuously since Israel was founded in 1948, has resigned for personal reasons. A government spokesman said he also will relinquish his seat in Parliament but will remain as head of a caretaker government until a new one is formed. Speculation spread that the 76- year-old leader resigned Sunday because of criticism in Parliament over his handling of a security case. But a communique issued after a Cabinet meeting said Ben- Gurion's reasons for quitting were "not connected with any state problem or event." One source said that when the Cabinet pressed Ben-Gurion lor the reasons he replied, "I am keeping them to myself." The security case involved German scientists developing nuclear rockets for the United Arab Republic. An Israeli security chief, who never was identified, resigned last March because of differences with Ben-Gurion. Opposition. parties demanded an open debate on the resignation, but Ben-Gurion's Mapai party avert ed it. Two Israeli agents on trial in Basel, Switzerland, on charges of threatening a relative of a German scientist in Egypt, testified last week that Egyptian factories were turning out nuclear rockets to menace Israel. The trial produced a feeling that the security chief had been vindicated and that this induced Ben- Gurion to resign. Once before, Ben-Gurion resigned under heavy fire but returned to office after heading a caretaker government. He quit in January 1961, in a controversy involving former Defense Minister Pinhas Lavon. The dispute reportedly centered on policy toward Egypt and a security leak. Details were never disclosed. Ben-Gurion has headed seven of the nine Israeli Cabinets since the state was founded in 1948. Most prominently mentioned as a possible successor is Finance Minister Levi Eshkol, 68, regarded as the No. 2 man in both the cabinet and the Mapai party. Close friends indicated Ben- Gurion plans to retire to a settlement in the Negev Desert to write his memoirs and write on Jewish history. Millard F. Caldwell, Florida Supreme Court Justice, will speak in favor of the proposed amendments, and Arthur J. Freund, a St. Louis attorney, will express views of opponents. The announcement of the final arrangements for the debate was made by Madison County State's Attorney Dick H. Mudge, president of the Madison County Bar Assn. While the debate, believed to be the first of its kind in the Sector country on the proposed amend- WeatherForecast Alton and vicinity — Fair and cool tonight with the low 53 to 62.

Storm Damage to Miami Ditch Has ments, is being sponsored by the Association f o r the b e ne f i t oi Madison County attorneys, area legislators and members of other bar associations have been invited to attend or send observers. At Holiday Inn The debate is to be conducted at 7:30 p.m. next Wednesday, June 26, at Holiday Inn located on U.S. By-Pass 66, southwest of Edwardsville. Because of limited facilities, it is impossible to invite the general public, but the debate will be open to all news media, Mudge said. Following the debate, members of the county bar will cast ballots on the issues debated. Mudge said he believes the debate to be the first of many anticipated throughout the country on the amendments. "I feel that Madison County, named for the Father of the Constitution, is an appropriate place to begin such debates," Mudge commented. Last December the conference of state governments recommended to legislatures of the states that they propose three amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The proposed amendments would (1) take away from federal courts all jurisdiction over state legislaive apportionment; (2) establish a "super supreme court" composed of the 50 state chief Been Repaired Gerald Bacus, assistant city engineer, said today that repairs were completed last Friday on Alton's Miami ditch, portions of which were damaged June 10 by storm waters. Bacus said that a relatively small amount of concrete work remains to be done on the ditch which is part of Alton's overall sewer improvement project. A few days will finish up the work, he added. The engineer said a little more than 100 teet of concrete on the east side of the ditch had to be replaced as a result of the storm damage. Bishop Attacks Legalizetl Gambling BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Proposals for legalized gambling in Indiana drew the fire Sunday of Methodist Bishop Richard C Raines, who termed gambling "incompatible with Christian etb ics." Raines said Methodists tra ditionally have opposed gambling which he termed a "moral can cer which eats away at the vital of society." Kennedy Meeting On Rights By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (API—Congressional and religious leaders gather at the White House today to hoar appeals from President Kennedy that they act to improve the lot of Negro Americans. The separate sessions are part of Kennedy's two-pronged attack on inequality; Using persuasions of private citizens to try to speed desegregation; sounding out key members of Congress prior to dispatch of his civil rights legislative package to Capitol Hill later this week. On the voluntary front, Kennedy already has met with business and labor groups, with several governors and a week ago in Hawaii with the nation's mayors. Another session with governors is planned for Tuesday, and there have been reports he will meet with educators Wednesday. The President called in congressional leaders last week. This morning's repeat session comes amid signs that civil rights supporters, still lack the votes to kill the filibuster Southern senators are almost certain to mount in opposition to Kennedy's legislation. House passage of some form of :ivil rights legislation is regarded as likely. The story is apt to be different in the Senate, for an Associated Press canvass indicates eaders cannot count on marshalling the two-thirds of those voting to shut off debate. The Dixie senators' key target probably will be an expected administration proposal calling for egal steps to prevent discrimination in public places and private businesses. The Kennedy program probably will include, too, propos- sals to strengthen voting rights, authorize the attorney general to act legally to speed school integration and to extend the life of Wilson Accuses Macmillan Of Gambling With Security MONDAY, JUNE 17, 1963 Five Plead Guilty; Ask Probation the Civil Rights Commission. The canvass shows that since May 9, 1962, when an effort lo cut off talk on a bill to abolish tate literacy tests in voting was defeated 53 to 43, there has been a shift of 10 votes to the support of cloture. Senators absent for the 962 test are expected to swell the otal by three. In a check of senators outside the South, an additional eight members representing votes cast against cloture on the literacy measure—expected to be part of he administration's new package —indicated they might be per- uaded under certain circumstances to vote to cut off talk. Five senators stood firm on heir determination to vote again against cloture. Ten others represented in the anti-cloture group n 1962 declined to commit themselves on the issue. Thus if those seeking to kill a filibuster got the support of all those who have changed their minds, those who were absent a year ago and those who remain doubtful they could add up four votes. This would be three short of the 67 needed to curb debate if all 100 senators voted. Profumo Debate Opens LONDON (AP) - Opening de- hate in Britain's biggest political scandal of the century, opposition labor leader Harold Wilson accused Prime Minister Harold I Masniillan of "gambling with the national security." Wilson, 47. said the illicit affair between resigned War Minister John Profumo and part* girl Christine Keeler and its outcome were "a triumphant success for the Soviet espionage authorities." He declared this was true if only because of its impairment of confidence between Britain and its allies. "Either the security services knew and deliberately withheld the information from the prime minister—in which case heads have to roll—or they did not know, and if they did not it is a fair question to ask why," said Wilson. Replying for the government, Macmillan acknowledged that "a great shock has been given to Parliament and indeed to the whole country" by the Profumo affair. "To me as head of the administration," he told the. House, "what has happened has inflicted a deep and bitter and lasting wound. "I find it difficult to tell the House what a blow this has been to me, for it seems to have undermined one of the very foundations on which political life must be conducted."

Answers Call Mudge said that, although the scheduled debate has been under consideration by the county bar group for nearly two months, it is being held in answer to a call made by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren in speeches recently a Duke University and to the American Law Institute in Washington, D. C. Justice Warren called for "a great national debate" of the proposed amendments. Although 16 state legislatures- including Illinois — have adopted some of the proposed amendments, the proposals still are prime issues in all states due to the fact that some states may follow the lead of the New Jersey legislature in reversing its stand after having passed some of the proposals, Mudge pointed out today.

Wi A personal injury and damage suit arising from an automobile collision, two years ago this month, was called to trial in Alton city court today as a 2-sveek setting of jury cases was opened before Judge I. H. Streeper. The suit was that of Mrs. Ida Florence Gilbert and her husband, George Oliver Gilbert, of 513 Marsh Street against Henry T. Sheppard of 2209 Powhatan St. Mrs. Gilbert averred in her complaint that she incurred injury June 12, 1961 when riding as a passenger in a car, operated by her husband, which was in a collision at Washington and Wilkinson Avenues, with an automobile driven by Sheppard. She asked compensation because of her injuries, and Gilbert, in a separate YOU, TOO, MAY FIND - ilfs so [easy count, asked compensation because of damage to his car and because of his wife's medical bills. Plaintiffs averred negligence on part of the defendant, and the defendant denied this charge in an answer. Seven suits had been placed on the calendar for trial today, but the court was informed four had been settled. Two others had been reset for trial later in the present jury period. This left only the Gilbert-Sheppard case ready for hearing today. Judge Streeper said that the suits settled out of court would be dismissed.

By WILLIAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent Racial violence in the United tales gives the world's Commu- ists a golden harvest of propa- anda. They are making the most fit. Newspapers and radio in Com- lunist-ruled countries from China o Cuba have seized enthusiastic- lly upon the events in the U.S. south.
