PAC;E FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1963 Editorial Notes on A New Pope to Assuage the World Books at Library The reign of Pope John XXIII will continue in effect.

To take this name as Pope he had to po b.u k to the 17th century. Paul V died in 16J1. and this name had been neglected since then. In the name Paul be can find a united tiding of reverence and respect from all Christian denominations -— Roman Catholic, Protestants, or Orthodox — with no contro- VITSV as to status of the original in the world of inith. f ; or the theoloiiv ot all is based sohdlv upon the writings and interpretation-, made by the first Paul.

THE LITTLE WOMAN Peace on the Labor Front, too Politically, economical!}, and spintu.iilv the, nation can be encouraged by the outcome of negotiations between labor and Steel. In a year when s,triic. particularly in the crucial newspaper industry of New York, gave at least parts of the nation extreme labor pains, at least the steel negotiations have given birth to what can be hoped is a new pattern of dealings. The steel method of collective bargaining, starting with ilic completion of the previous contract, has been hailed as a contribution to understanding between labor and management, and toward more stable economic procedure in the country. \Ve may yet suffer some twinges as the result of steel stockpiling against a possible strike. \V'e must watch to see what develops. But the success of these negotiations should * if i Retail Areas 'Jell' Two of the city's most important business groups appear to have "jelled" their ideas. Earlier this week the Downtown group took their problems and plans before the City Council's members at a get-acquainted meeting, and presented a solid front in their long- range proposals for both preservation and improvement of the section. They presented impressive evidence of the downtown area's importance to the city not only as a service center for its citizens, but as a basis for taxes with which the city must finance its operations. Latest business section to "jell" is Upper Alton's. Resistence to a plan for developing a parking lot, much needed in that section, despite the additional area provided by the new shopping center, was dissolved with withdrawal of objections by one business man. It is this type of understanding and cooperation that will help Alton go ahead in development of its business centers that mean much in not only money and service, buc even in morale. * * * * * Funds for Library Funds, for the proposed new library on the Southern Illinois University Campus are included in $5,850,000 released by Gov. Kerner for buildings on the center. The announcement should be a reminder of the considerable interest in the proposal to name the library after Dr. Harold See, original developer of the campus. One proposal has been made to name the library after Elijah P. Lovejoy. As we have smootiu- over the buying pattern for the next. Meatr.vlule. growing assurance that labor negotiations need not interrupt the country's production can strengthen us nationally against the threat ot Premier Khrushchev to "bury" us economically. Spiritually, too, the nation is the gainer for having demonstrated that two sharply divergent approaches to solution of differences between labor and management can be solved on a major scale without stoppage of production and spread of all its attendant mass of misery and suffering, plus the usual economic setback to the country as a whole. Steel has gained a tremendous victory on this occasion — one whose pattern we hope can be followed in not only future bargaining in that field, but in a spreading area throughout industry and business. » » said before, however, Lovejoy's name would before appropriately attached to the journalism building which also is to be a feature of the campus. This building will probably not be among the earliest built, and should be delayed until the department requires it. But we believe the injection of Mr. Lovejoy's name could await the appropriate time and subject. Unfortunate Burial It is unfortunate for the established merchandising centers in the state that the proposed Sunday closing law got hopelessly buried in House committee at Springfield this week. A spread of Sunday opening started from entry into the field by the huge discount house chains now establishing branches largely in suburban areas must result in a considerable dislocation of the state's retail trade pattern. If a way had been found to establish this regulation without all the hairsplitting which was being injected, its failure to pass would have been far more regrettable. Rep. Paul Powell brings the one optimistic note. Illinois is going after the tourist business, which must have weekend accommodations. We feel retailing and the thousands of people involved in it are in for a rough time over the next few years. Some businesses are bound to fail as a result. The public will pay for the operational week spread in the end. it will have passed on to it the cost of operating stores additional hours, unless this innovation can combine with increased tourist trade to generate the extra trade needed. By DAVID K. HOI/T Librarian THE SHOKS OF THE PtSIIKK MAN. Morris L. West — "Thei j Pope was dead. The Camerlrngo luiri announced it. The Master of Ceremonies, the notories, the doe- tors, had consigned him under signature into eternity. His ring was defaced and his seals were broken. The bells had been rung throughout the city. The pontifical body had been handed to the embalmers so that it might be a seemly object for the veneration ! of the faithful. Now it lay, be! tween white candles, in the Sistine I Chapel, with the Noble Guard keeping a deathwatch under Michelangelo's frescoes of the 'Last Judgment.' " Thus begins Morris West's timely and exciting novel of that most powerful of all religious offices, the papacy. The new pope, selected by inspiration, is the first non- Italian to be elevated to that position since the dutehmaii, Adrian VI. was chosen a.s pontiff 'l 1 .^ centuries earlier.

The office of the Pope with all its political, moral and economic mplications is described in a riost compelling manner by Mr. West, author of the previous best sellers — "The Devil's Advocate," and "Daughter of Silence." Told in ornate and artistic prose, he story moves through the lives of all who touch the high office- cardinals, reporters, politicians, ind private citizens. The author reals his subject with respect and nimility. He also communicates o the reader the impact of the awesome power and responsibil- ty of the papal authority. Drew Pearson's Merr\-Go-Round JFK Takes Gen. Clay to Berlin WASHINGTON — Most interesting passenger in President Ken nedy's entourage a.s he takes off for Germany is Gen. Lucius Clay, the Georgia Democrat turned Republican, who once commanded U.S. troops in Germany. Those who have closely studied Gen. Clay's operations frankly vvere mystified. Gen. Clay is the man who admitted in his memoirs that he had made the initial mistake of. not negotiating an agreement with Russia giving the United States access rights into Berlin. This is the reason why t h e Russians and East Germans have controlled the highway into West Berlin and the root cause of all the maneuvering and near war over Berlin. Furthermore, Gen. Clay, w i I h all his charm and personal magnetism, has the reputation of being more on-again-off-again than! any other so-failed "friend ot the White House." Here is the record which caused eyebrow-lifting in diplomatic circles when it was learned that Gen. Clay would accompany the President to Germany and Berlin: 1. As postwar commander in Germany, Clay stopped the dismantling of the Nazi war factories, then handed the phnts back to the old Nazi cartels. This was in direct contradiction to then- Americuri-policy, and a surprise to Gen. George Marshall, then chief of staff, Later it contributed to the reason why Truman abruptly accepted Clay's resignation. 'i. Though two Democratic presidents, Iloosevelt and Truman, had elevated Clay to among t h e lushest run inlands in the U.K. Army and the Defense Mobilixa- tion Board, ho turned round to become a hraintruster and booster of Dwight D. Eisenhower, helped raise money for him, laier served as "king-maker" for the selection of Ike's cabinet. Clay was credited with picking George Humphrey to be .Secretary of the Treasury and Charles E. Wilson of General Motors to be Secretary of Defense. By this time Clay had become head of Continental Can, thanks to his friendship with Sidney Weinberg, a director of Continental Can and head of the Goldman- Sachs investment firm. In Ike's day, he had more frequent entree to the White House than anyone, with the possible exception of Tom Dewey. Alton Evening PubllBhed Daily by Alton TelRnraph PrinliiiB Compunv P. B. COUSLEY.

They are beautifully and reverently done and require much work and preparation on the part of students and teachers. In far too many cases this is the only brush with spirituality that many of our young people get. But certainly the Jewish children are "outsiders" here, and I'm sure an "Ave Maria" would be frowned upon, so basically the assemblies are Protestant — and isn't it by and large a Protestant who shouts "separation of church and state?" I personally feel that parents are responsible for the religious upbringing of their children — by The quiet, desperate prayer of!example —home prayer, Bible he newly-chosen Pope Kiril 1st speaks to us all: "I know — or at least I am Beginning to know. I was elected his morning, and tonight I am alone on the mountain of Desolation. He whose Vicar I am, hides His face from me. Those whose shepherd I must be do not know me. The world is spread beneath me like a campaign map — and I see balefires on every frontier. There are blind eyes upturned, and a babel of voices invoking an unknown. . . O God, give me light to see, and strength to know, and courage to endure the servitude of the servants of God..." Morris L. West, a native Australian, was born in Melbourne in 1916. He was educated at schools of the Christian Brothers order, which he joined as a postulant when he was 14 and left 12 years later without taking final vows. In 1958 he was Vatican correspondent for the Daily Mail. His tribute to Pope John XXIII in Life Magazine on June 7, 1963, was hailed as one of the most moving and sympathetic portrait ever written about the recently deceased pontiff. "Fisherman" is timely, intriguing and rewarding. Recommended. Readers' Forum Bargaining Our President has always claimed to be a friend of the union man. But I often wonder. In the past the union could bargain with management freely. Now if someone mentions strike or that the contract period is about to end, our President immediately sends in a fact-finding committee. The only facts the committee finds out are the ones dictated to them from Washington before they go to the negotiations. The committee rarely finds in favor of union or management, hut in favor ul government and their controls. Now, our President is asking to lax eating facilities, insurance premiums, parking lots, and other fringe benefits that the unions have successfully bargained for over the years. With one fast swipe of the hand, our President wants to do away with many fringe benefits. Before you know it. he will want to tax factory restrooms under the classification ofj parking stalls. j If Congress passes his request, j the union has lost years of free] bargaining and a "friendly" Prcs- j ident.

What is our country coming to? Let's look back. Whey was our country founded? Our Pilgrim fathers came here to have freedom of religion. Our country was founded on God. When I read the Supreme Court had outlawed the Lord's prayer in our schools, something inside me cried out against this thing. What has happened to the rights of the God-fearing people? Are we going down as other countries that let this thing come in and lake away their God-given privileges? When this privilege is taken away from America and we sit by and do nothing, we are going down with the powers that lead us to destruction. Christians must wake up, get to their knees, and bring out that Bible to fight for the God-given rights of our children (our future United States). When we leave out prayer and the Bible, we are headed f o r catastrophe. MRS.

FED UP IN TINY CUL-DE-SAC. June 22,1938 The Illinois Supreme Court reversed a December decision and declared legislation fixing minimum wages for downstate firemen and police unconstitutional. Springfield had been joined by 25 downstate communities in the test, which allowed cities to raise tax rates without ii referendum to meet the added burden. An Alton man who had suffered severe scarring burns 25 years before when a celluloid comb exploded, wns undergoing his 45th plastic sursricnl operation. A new lighting system, a memorial to Mrs. L. V. Rutherford and her daughters, Miss Mary Rutherford and Mrs. John A. Cousley, wns placed in use for the first time at First Presbyterian Church. Harold Boggess of New York, Julliard graduate student, whose father was organist at the church, was baritone soloist. Alton plant of Owens-Illinois Glass Co. received recognition for its safety record of only 13 time lost accidents for the year out of 142 cases attended by a physician, while working a total of 5,279,649 man-hours. The Illinois Supreme Court held that retail liquor dealers were required to pay both the state liquor tax and the wiles tax, since each of the taxes served a different purpose. Among Alton relatives attending the ordination of the Rev. Aloysius T. Motherwny into the Jesuit Order at SI. Mary's College, Kan., was Mrs. James Kirwin, a cousin. The public school summer band with membership of 50, was receiving many invitations to play at functions. Rehearsal and playing under the direction of Charles C. Chase, grade school conductor in regular school months, occupied almost every night of the members' time. Mrs. Mary Jones, 36, wife of Alphonse Jones, and mother of nine children, died in St. Joseph's Hospital. Judge Henry H. Eaton of Wood River announced his candidacy for state's attorney on the Republican ticket. Illinois' first paved highway, near Carlinville High school, would be repaved and widened to 30-foot width from Alton Railroad crossing to the west end of the school property. It would narrow to 20 feet to the intersection with Route 108. June 22 1 1913 An early court t«t oi the change in the boundaries of Alton and Wood River townships now seemed assured. Circuit Judge W, E. Hadley had approved issuance of a mandamus writ requiring the state's attorney to file a quo warranto proceedings which would test the transfer of Upper Alton and other portions of Wood River township to Alton township. With a single exception, planned improvements to Godfrey Congregational Church, erected in 1954, had been completed. The basement had been converted into a concrete-floored meeting room, and electric lights had been installed. Remaining to be done wns replacement of deteriorated supporting timbers in the church steeple — a distinctive feature of the classic structure. Representatives of Keokuk Light & Power Co. said virtually all right-of-way agreements had been secured for bringing Keokuk power to a substation site on Alton riverfront and construction ot high tension lines would soon be started. The "high lines" were to cross Grafton Road a short distance west of North Alton. Alton had purchased a 600-gallon street sprinkler which was to be used to moisten pavements before they were swept by a street sweeping machine. Heavy rainfall Saturday afternoon which continued in showers over night and through Sunday evening broke a long drouth and was hailed as a crop saver for the area. James Hearne and Robert Gaddis arrived home after a 2-week canoe trip downstream from Peoria. Their expedition was marred by rain only on the final day which forced them for a time to seek shelter at the Glades club. Now that construction of the Wood River Drainage & Levee District protective work was in progress, long pending flood-damage suits by Western Cartridge Co., and Union Cap & Chemical Co. against railroads serving the East Alton area were being dropped. The dismissals by the plaintiffs were in recognition that the Burlington and C£A made no fight against the levees and for straightening the channel of unruly Wood river. Joseph Wardein had led in a project whereby a new 78-foot flag pole was provided for St. Mary's parish school ground. Allen-Scott Report Considers Dismantling Nuclear Plants WASHINGTON - President Kennedy may soon announce the dismantling of one or more of the government's plants producing the fissionable material for nuclear weapons. Under intense consideration by the President and his top foreign affairs advisers, this dramatic unilateral disarmament plan is a key part of his elaborate program to persuade Premier Khrushchev to accept a nuclear t est ban agreement. Under this backstage program, the President would announce this country's intention to shut down one or more of its fissionable material plants in line with the "strategy for peace" concept he proclaimed in his recent American University speech. The spectacular announcement would be included in a new disarmament offer to Russia to negotiate the banning of all nuclear weapons production after an agreement is reached to end further nuclear tests. j The timing and method of mal-.-j ing this offer to Khrushchev is under deliberation in the President's inner council. One group of these policy advisers favors proclaiming the dramatic proposal in a speech during the President's European tour. Another group wants Undersecretary of State Averell Harriman, who is going to Moscow in mid-July as a special test ban negotiator, to submit the plan direct to Khrushchev. As revealed by this column last week, the 71-year-old diplomat will also sound out Khrushchev on the establishment of a new agency to conduct discussions for easing the cold war. That extraordinary project, under closely-guarded consideration for several months, calls for setting up a special East-West commission "to reduce tensions, promote stability, dampen military crises, and reduce the risk of war." Split Decision The proposal to dismantle nuclear plants, which is strongly opposed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has the vigorous support of Secretary of State Rusk, Defense Secretary McNamara, Atomic Energy Commission Chairman Seabo rg and Dr. Walt Rostow, head of the Stale Department Policy Planning Council. They are advocating this far- reaching move on the ground that concessions have to be made to Khrushchev to induce him to agree to a nuclear test ban and thus avert another round of Soviet tests. Main basis of the Joint Chiefs' opposition is that any unilateral disarmament proposal by the U. S. would be interpreted by the Kremlin as a sign of weakness The military chiefs contend that the Soviet does not intend to agree to a test ban at this time, regardless of what, we do. The Joint Chiefs stress that Russia is behind the U.S. in nu- c 1 e a r weapons development, Today's Prayer 0 God, we thank Thee for Christian schools and colleges. May teachers and students alike search for truth and light and come to realize that Thou art the Revealer of both of these. As they loam more of the mind of the Master, may they become humble hut effective witnesses for Him. May individuals so live that others may wish to know their Lord and may institutions themselves become a leaven of righteousness in their communities. We pray in the all- prevailing name of Jesus our Lord. Amen. —James Ross McCain, Decatur, Ga., president-emeritus, Agnes Scott College. (© 1963 by the Division of Christian Education, Nutlonal Council of the Churehes of Christ in the U. S. A.) knows that, and is determined to do everything possible to catch up. For this reason, there is no likelihood of Khrushchev agreeing to a test ban. The nuclear plant proposal, which has not been disclosed to congressional leaders, is certain to stir a storm of dissent in the Joint Atomic Committee. Warns of Trap Already, Senator Henry Jackson, D-Wash., ranking member, has bluntly warned the President he is "walking straight into a Soviet trap" in sending Harriman to Moscow. In a talk with the President before he departed for Europe Senator Jackson flatly predicted that the Soviet will begin a new series of nuclear tests in August, alter which they will express willingness to enter into a "limited" test ban. Jaekson pointed out that the Central Intelligence Agency has informed the Atomic committee that Russia is rushing preparations for new tests. The Soviet's strategy not only will put the U.S. behind in the testing and development of nuclear weapons, Jackson stressed, hut will put the President in a humiliating diplomatic position after sending Harriman "hat in hand" to Moscow. Real purpose behind the President's conference with Prime Minister Macmillan is to map strategy aimed at maneuvering Premier Khrushchev into a summit meeting this fall. <(<) 1DB3, The Hall Syndicate, Inc.)
