PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 1963 Editorial Let the Churches Do Their Job Far from weakening the influence of religion in the country, as some will insist, the Supreme Court's Lord's Prayer decision returned Monday should strengthen it. The decision held it unconstitutional for a state to require Bible reading and the recitation of the Lord's Prayer in public schools. The public schools, to begin with, are government institutions. The teachers and their officials represent government. From this decision and from others returned recently, churches should take notice that they must be the central agencies for the propagation of the faith — if any is propagated. We believe they are beginning to realize this. And they should realize they must do a better job of it than could be done through the schools. The United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America took cognizance of it during its General Assembly at Des Moines, la. several weeks ago. They recommended that "religious observance never be held in a public school or introduced into the public school as part of its program. Bible reading in connection with courses in the American heritage, world history, literature, the social sciences, and other academic subjects is completely appropriate for school instruction. Bible reading and prayers as devotional acts tend toward indoctrination or meaningless ritual and should be omitted for both reasons. Ministers, priests, and rabbis should be free to speak in public schools provided their speaking does not constitute religious indoctrination, or their presence form a part of a religious observance." We feel there is much wisdom in this statement by the Presbyterians, particularly in its allusion to "meaningless ritual." If a student is confronted with religious services of other than his own choice, such ritual unsupported by understanding explanation could easily turn him against the very faith with which it seeks to indoctrinate him. Certainly small and poorly applied doses will increase the youngster's "immunity." And if such worship does not aim to indoctrinate him, his subjection to it is an even more complete waste of time. \Ve believe in the long run that churches will benefit from these decisions of the United States Supreme Court. The challenge of turning religious instruction and indoctrination back to where it belongs should arouse the churches. It should move them to re-evaluate their Christian education methods and efforts in terms of the question: "Why should we ever have had to depend upon the public schools to do our job for us?" Apprehension for the Cause Roy Wilkins' alarm that other Negro groups "furnish the noise," while the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People "pays the bills" is based on something that could b erated much better than pure envy. As executive director of the NAACP Mr. Wilkins could have laid himself open to a return blast from the Congress for Racial Equality and the Student Non-Violence Coordinating Committee, along with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference headed by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His statement was only a reminder, however, that the NAACP has been undertaking the improvement of the Negro's plight in America for years, and in its conduct of that program has demonstrated the ultimate in responsibility, calculated to gain the most permanent progress. It has laid the groundwork for the current situation. Granting that a judicial application of the "heat" is necessary in hammering out any longlasting product, we believe Mr. Wilkins is merely alluding to what may well be termed injudicious and in the long run ineffective application of too high a temperature in the present southern adventure. Too much "heat" can make brittle the temper of the best steel — or could oxidize it. Much already has been gained by the type of campaign the NAACP has been sponsoring. But Mr. Wilkins cannot be blamed for feeling considerable anxiety over lack of permanence of the type of gains made possible under the violent programs now approaching the "out of hand" stage in the South. Only emotional scar tissue and long-lasting wounds to both sides, worse than already existing conditions, can result overambitions further adventuring along this line. And Congress may well be unlikely to submit to violent pressure from either side in the present type of campaign. Mr. Wilkins can speak for NAACP from a solid position of leadership in sacrifice. It was NAACP's representative who v/as assassinated in Mississippi. It is time for a return to calm and reasoning once more. The nation has noted the potentialities; the intense desire of Negroes for a full equality of advantages as well as responsibility. It should act, through Congress, through its state legislatures, through its local government, through its churches, and through its individual citizens, now that the picture of the needs has been painted. Still Victim of Neglect Once more neglect of the existing county jail by the board of supervisors raises the question of whether the county government should be trusted with the tremendous sum necessary to replace it with a new and modern plant. Months ago the Telegraph disclosed the fact that locks on upstairs cells were worn and defective. One Telegraph reporter worked his way out of a cell by merely manipulating the door according to directions given him by a prisoner. No tools were needed. We pointed out here, then, that what obviously should come first, amid all the agitation for new detention quarters which would feature special arrangements for youngsters was a demonstration that our county fathers knew how to and were willing to undertake proper maintenance of their existing property. We need security now. The new features can come later. But need for security now should not be delayed by an effort to pry these other advantages out of the county. When a Granite City prisoner in the jail the other day attacked a sheriff's deputy, added inquiry disclosed that the locks were still suffering from their old malady. Sheriff Fraundorf said he had consulted the former county jail committee of the board of supervisors about getting the faulty locks fixed, but nothing had been done. He now intends to consult a locksmith, himself, and see if he can't get the old lock mechanisms fixed. We hope he isn't reduced to taking up a special collection among the prisoners to get the bill paid. Dress Pearson's Merry-Go-Round World Food Congress Colorful Sight WASHINGTON — For more | homes, or how Jane Freedman, than a week, one thousand dele- gales to the World Food Congress have been meeting in the State Department auditorium without eating together. This is partly because austerity rather than sumptuous banquets is the theme of the meeting; partly because the delegates, coming from 100 different countries, have such different religious and racial eating habits that getting a common menu is difficult. Moslems, for instance, cannot eat pork; Hindus cannot eat beef. But today all will sit. down at a common luncheon at the Sheraton Park Hotel. Chicken and vegetables have been chosen as a safe diet for all religions. The World Food Congress is an extraordinary demonstration of how people-to-people friendship can operate. Most of the delegates are not here at the expense of their governments. Some countries are too small and their budgets too low. So most of the delegates, some in colorful African robes, some in Arab headdress, had their expenses paid by trade unions, farm organizations, and private individuals operating through the Freedom from Hunger Foundation. Altogether it raised $85,000 to pay for delegates' traveling expenses to Washington. Thus the two Louisiana penny- pinchers, Sen. Allen Ellender and Rep. Otto Passman, who spend the taxpayers' money traveling abroad while worrying about government waste, in this case won't have anything to worry about. They won't even have to worry about the manner in which individual Americans entertained Uie delegates hi their private beauteous wife of the Secretary of Agriculture, arranged for 600 of the delegates to see the exciting cinerama "How the West Was Won." This, incidentally, brought home to the delegates the fact that the United States did not start off as a rich, skyscraper country, but rather was as backward and deficient 100 years ago as some of the underdeveloped areas are today. Fascinating Delegates Some of the most fascinating females ever to gather in Washington are attending the World Food Congress. Most statuesque is Madame Adolfo Lopez Mateos, wife of the president of Mexico.

Thus, the court says it is not unconstitutional to use religious phrases in the taking of oaths foi public office and in other ceremonies or in opening daily sessions of Congress. What the Supreme Court would ban is an.\ direct order from a state or federal authority commanding students in public schools to listen to anj prayers or participate in religious exercises. But, at the same time any course in religious history or discussion in the classroom of a theoretical or literary nature aboul religious works is not prohibited by the court's ruling when this is engaged in by special study group.' concerned with world religions or history. Hie most interesting comment by the majority of the members of the Court was with reference to the provisions in state laws which stipulated that students who didn't want to participate could refrain from attending religious exercises. The High Court argued that this didn't change the situation with reference to those students who preferred to remain. In relation to such a group, the government was held to be an instructor in religion. This was construed to be a violation of the First Amendment, which says that Congress shall pass no law "respecting an establishment of religion"—a provision now applied to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment. The High Court takes the view that, whenever the state, directly or indirectly, sanctions a religious exercise even though it be voluntarily attended, this, in eifect, is government-connected religion, and that school rooms cannot be lawfully used for such purposes. This week's decision by the' Supreme Court is one of a long Ine of rulings issued by it in the ast several decades in cases whicli have dealt with attempts to, instill a sense of morality in children through religious teachings in the schools. At one time, religious instruction was offered in separate classes in public schools in one state. This was given only to those students who had the consent of their parents to attend. But the Supreme Court held that the use of the public-school build- ngs themselves was not constitutional, since the government was thus involved in the teaching of religion. To overcome this handicap, the proponents of the idea of encouraging religious teaching to the children of school age hit upon the idea of what is known as "released time." This means that students can be excused from regular classes for certain periods each week so they can attend exercises in non-public-school buildings where their own churches arrange for the teaching program The "released time" arrangement has been operating for many years in a number of states. In 1940 New York State passed a law authorizing the release of students from class at public schools to attend religious instruction off the school premises. This was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States as constitutional. It may someday run up against the objection that those who do not go to such outside classes musl remain in schol during the period of "released time." It would appear that the ruling handed down this week will answer the question that has been raised in recent months as to whether any state-directed programs of religious exercises could be carried on if the objecting stu dents were given permission to absent themselves. Now that the court insists that the state cannot participate in teaching even those who want to remain, it looks as if separate classes in non-public buildings — which would be operated entirely by private persons and with no help from the school system—is the only set-up that the Supreme Court will sanction In other words, there can be separate facilities for teaching religion, but these cannot in any way be integrated into the same school. Separation of religious teaching in separate facilities is the rule, (ffl 1883, N.Y. Herald-Tribune, Inc.) speaking out for birth control,.. Most of the women are young, most of them mothers. These are the delegates who have come to Washington from all over the world to debate the problem of feeding the other half ol the world. Congressmen who have appeared before the House Rules Committee complain that its members are rude and sarcastic. Most committees treat other congressmen with elaborate courtesy when they testify, but Rules Committee members regard themselves as the aristocrats of the House. i <© law, Bell Syndicate. Inc.)

Readers Forum White Children Are Sued The legislature passed laws recently and is passing others now raising the salary of the governor from $30,000 to $40,000 a year; the salaries of legislators from $6,000 to $9,000 a year; the lieutenant governor from $16,000 to $21,000; and the Secretary of State from $20,000 to $30,000. Salaries of the state auditor, treasurer, superintendent of public instruction and attorney general would go from $20,000 to $26,000. And so on down the line — from a slate that is claiming such a shortage of funds that checks :rom the indigent were held up while these men, planning on vot- ng nice salary increases, argued over where the money was to :*>me from. And where is the money to come from? The front pages of the daily paper gave the answer to that: nasmuch as it is to be squeezed rom the funds which might other- vise be alotted to the aged. The first article stated that two nen were being sued to provide or the indigent were held up moved from the pension rolls. One jf these men made a monthly salary of five hundred-odd dollars d the other made three hund- •ed-odd. But they were far removed rom the thousands of dollars mentioned above. Yet these men, vith two other dependants, were declared capable of taking on an added burden. Not but what they would like to. And if they had the 20 and 30 thousand dollar salaries of the men who are judging them, hey could provide the space and nursing help necessary to give their parents the independance and dignity treasured by the aged. Let's look at an imaginary budget for a man making $350 a month. Gas or bus fare Rent Food and milk Electricity Fuel Water Insurance Medical, dental, drugs Car payment Household Furniture Total $40. 80. 120. 12 15. 2. 10, 10, 60, 20, $369 Something has to give there. Now the man who is making a little over $500 a month is better off. He might even have saved a little. Now HE could possibly take in a parent, but where to put one in a house crowded with a couple of teen-agers (and if you don't think two teen-agers are a crowd, you don't have any) and possibly others. The food support he can manage, but what of the huge medical bills to come? Old people on the pension receive good medical care. But without this, what can lie do? Spend his saving? Mort- gate his house? Also, what about the teen-agers who are ready for college, which they are all being encouraged to attend? Do they stay home and go to work? Must two generations who are trying to plan for a better old age be sacrificed unnecessarily for one? And what of the old people who want to stay in their own little ionic? This man could not possibly keep up two households. Must these old people be displaced in the last years of their lives, when $60 a month will make them fairly happy? What of the man, 94, who had three or four serious bouts in the hospital, but who stoutly refused to live with a daughter, or go to a nursing home, and is now living happily in his own little place, a satisfied man? This Robin Hood-in-reverse act needs thinking about. MRS. CARMAN MURRELL Grafton \CROSSWORD By Eugene Sheffer 25 and 50 Years Ago June 18,1938 Burned when gas flashed near a pressure still unit at Wood River refinery of Standard Oil Co., Harrison Vandergriff, Arthur C. Slater, Harvey Moore, and Michael Adzema were admitted to St. Joseph's Hospital. D. C. Burroughs, and O. A. Brown, with superficial burns, received emergency treatment and were dismissed. No fire or damage to property resulted from the flash. Albert May, 22, suffered a compound fracture of his left forearm in a collision between his car and a Chicago-bound bus at the Central- East Broadway intersection. Illinois' murder rate fell to an all-time low in 1937, with the recorded homicides at 495, making the rate 62 per million population. Half of Illinois' counties had no slayings. Granite City and Alton reported three each. A motion to dismiss charges of liquor law violations against 30 taverns located in rural areas of Madison County was taken under advisement by the Madison County Liquor Control Board, who set hearings for several weeks hence. The charges involved slot machines, dice games, and permitting of dancing. Robert D. Tolle, year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Tolle, died two weeks after the death of a week-old brother. Madison County Farm Bureau membership had topped 1,000, Adviser T. W. May announced. Wheat harvesting was under way, and farmers were optimistic that the prices of 60-65 cents a bushel would hold through the whole season. Storms of recent weeks had damaged the grain, so that the official estimate of the nation's crops had been cut 8,000,000 bushels from the crop forecast of June 1. Senior year high honor students on the fourth quarter roll of Alton High School were: Constance Bruegmann, Bill Cassella, Eugene Churchill, Lyda B. Davis, Ellen Gould, Margaret Hanna, George Hays, Marjorie Huff, Mary Jennings, Charlotte McCurdy, Betty McDow, Lucy Marshall, Dorothy Moll, Fred Olsen, George Ryrie, Helen Sapot, Rosemary Schmitt, Rosalie Thomas, Gladys Watkins, Ancelee Wien- shienk, Normaiee Wightman, Beverly Barley, Ruth Bushnell, Eileen Curry, Robert Herb Diamond Kodros, Alice Reeder, Mary Jane Walker, Patty Watkins, and Eleanor Wiseman. June 18,1913 Alton aerie of Eagles shared part of the state FOE convention when 160 of the delegates came from Granite City on chartered Interurban cars to spend the evening as its guests, fifteen automobiles were provided to take the visitors on rides over the city before darkness fell, and a banquet and program of entertainment followed in the Eagles home. More than 200 members of the Alton lodge had attended the Granite City convention on parade day, and the aerie's uniformed contingent of 125, headed by White Hussar Band, won $75 in prizes. Walter F. Cobeck was marshal of the Alton group with Allen and Fred Heskett, John Busse, and John Berner Jr. as his aides. Miss Julia Dow, 78, who served 40 years as a teacher in the Alton school system, died at the home of her sister in Woburn, Mass. She had retired in 1904. Miss Dow was appointed a teacher here in 1864, two years before Lincoln school was built, and for the next 38 years had charge of a room in the Lincoln building. St. Patrick's School was to graduate a class of six: John F. Bailey, Richard T. Fitzgerald, Wilbur A. Hammond, Beatrice M. Dawes, Blanche L. Rosin, and Florence C. Cross. First house to be erected in the Chessen- Caldwell addition to Wood River was a bungalow. It was to be built to plans just completed for James Chessen by the Alton architectural firm of L. Pfeiffenberger & Son. A spokesman for Western Cartridge Co. announced that its new East Alton factory was being readied for operation by Aug. 1, and would triple the plant's capacity. Installation of machine equipment had been started. Two masked bandits held up the Illinois Central's "Diamond Special" at a point 10 miles south of Springfield, but failed in five attempts with dynamite to blow open an express car safe containing $25,000. The pair fled with estimated loot of only $500. With members of Cathedral parish assisting, 154 children of the Catholic orphanage were treated to an all-day pcinic in Rock Spring Park. Thirty-six automobiles were provided to take the children to and from the park and for many it was their first ride in a motorcar.

While our diplomats at the Unit- i d Nations were actively arrang- ng the dispatch of a peace-keep- ng force to Yemen, the White House was agreeing to train a number of pro-Nasser Yemen of- Icers in the U.S. To still further muddle matters, he State Department has initiated negotiations with Egypt and Saudi Arabia, the two main weapons suppliers to the contending Yemen factions, to increase U.S. economic aid to the two Arab countries. Egypt, with an estimated 28,000 troops in Yemen supporting Abdullah al-Salai, commander of the royal guard that overthrew the man, is seeking an additional 5100 million in surplus farm lommodities. This huge quantity of food is needed to ease the strain on Egyption economy caused by the soaring cost of Nasser's large expeditionary force in Yeman. Saudi Arabia, althi ugh immensely oil-rich wants some $30 million in economic and military aid to replace arms and money extended to the tribesmen supporting the ousted Iman, who is still waging war. The administration's astonishing policy of aiding all sides in the Yemen struggle came to light during a closed-door grilling of Assistant Defense Secretary William Bundy by the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Highlights of his revealing testimony are as follows: "What are we proposing in Yemen?" demanded Representative Vernon W. Thomson, R-Wis. "The secret charts given us today list funds for Yemen, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. This looks like we may be financing the fighting by both sides. Can you explain this?" "The figures for Egypt and Saudi Arabia are for projected economic aid, and the State Department, can supply the committee with the details," replied Bun- dly. "The money for Yemen is for a new military training program." Helping Nasser "I thought Nasser's mlitary forces were doing the training and fighting in Yemen," said Thomson. "The newspapers report he has 28,000 troops in Yemen. What is left for us to train?" "We are proposing a program combining orientation visits and some specialized training at Fort Benning, Ga., for a number of officers of the new Yemen army," answered Bundy. "Are we coordinating that with Nasser's activities?" continued Thomson. "This is a program to keep a foot in the door," explained Bundy. "The officers are probably pro-Nasser but I am sure we are not clearing this with him." Later the State Department Today's Prayer Heavenly Father, we come as children asking for Thy help and guidance this day and every day. Meet the needs of our lives and of those for whom we pray. Keep us from being casual and careless in our faith. Undergird us when we are restless, worried, and afraid. Give us insight for the mind, light for the way, and courage for the heart. May we be thoughtful of others and forgetful of self as we travel the journey of the years. Make us to know the job of the thankful spirit and the quiet mind which come to those who trust in Thee; through Christ. Amen. —Charles M.

The Full Story The loss of the nuclear attack submarine Thresher was a far more serious blow to the Navy than reports of the tragedy have revealed. All of the Navy's highly sensi- tice and secret evaluation equipment for its ton-priority Subroc missile program was on the Thresher when it sank off the coast of Massachusetts. This is one of the major findings of staff investigators of the Joint Congressional Atomic Committee who attended the proceedings of the official inquiry of the Navy's worst submarine disaster. In an unpublished report to Senator John Pastore, D-R.I., chairman, the staff investigators recommended that the Atomic Committee conduct a full-scale inquiry of the loss of the Thresher, including the impact its loss may have on the Subroc missile program. The probers disclosed that the Thresher was assigned one of the Navy's most sensitive missions — evaluating underseas tests of the Subroc missile being developed by the Navy. This underwater missile, like the Polaris, can be fired from a submarine while submerged. While the Polaris is designed to rise straight up after launching, the Subroc travels as far as 50 miles under water before surfacing to continue through the atmosphere to its target. The Subroc, equipped with a nuclear warhead as powerful as the Polaris, can attack enemy submarines, ships or land targets. Its range is estimated at "several hundred miles."

Due to the window the rose is black and the cloth yellow, but you see them as red and white because you have been conditioned that way. Should vacations be carefully planned? Answer: Only in broad outline. When vacations are planned too carefully, the objective is usually to do certain things at fixed times. Since this is the routine most of us follow the other 48 or 50 weeks of the year, considerable laxity In time and activity schedules might contribute greater relaxation and reward. When a vacation is meticulously planned it may cause greater strain to get everything done than we normally experience in our regular jobs. Are colors always the same? Answer: Yes, but people aren't.

Answer: Yes, but unfortunately those who would be most benefited by a period of relaxation are the least likely to arrange for it.

However, the anxiety generated by mixed up feelings is likely to breed a more restless anxiety, which muy pvod the individual into meaningless activity.
