PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, JUNE 24,, 1963 Editorial Another Canada in France? W»<t that intcntion.il fly-around President Kennedy gave Trench President Charles De- Gaulle the underlying purpose of his current tour abroad? Coming as it did on his way to a tumultuous welcome by thousands of Germans, we can hardly escape some suspicion that Mr. Kennedy may have in mind for Fr.ince and DeGaullc something of the same technique he worked on former Canadian Prime Minister Dicfenbaker. Only in Diefenbaker's case the slights didn't come directly from the President. Rather they emanated from men in his administration. Nevertheless they forced an election in which Diefenbaker was defeated. France and President DeGaullc who has been giving us considerable trouble with his grandiose nuclear ambitions, can hardly have escaped the implications of the fly-around. Neither can they escape the implications of Mr. Kennedy's reception by West Germans, and his words to them about the one- ness of America and her allies — as long as they remain our allies in spirit as well as in aid acceptance. It must be kept in mind that the alliance between Trance and Germany has appealed of the strongest. By her welcome to Kennedv Germany certainly cannot help but pass the message to France that she isn't just talking to hear herself talk when she tries to persuade DcGaulle's closer alignment in the western alliance. On this side many observers, particularly Republicans, were mystified by the purpose of Mr. Kennedy's apparently precipitate trip abroad during France's rejection of our plans, British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan's difficulties, Italy's cabinet confusion, West Germany's indecision over its governmental future, and our own far from peaceful race sriuation at home. The treatment of France and DeGaullc 1 Sunday doubtless will clear up this question for Mr. Kennedy's critical countrymen as well as tor our European allies — and France. A Job to Be Completed Sunday closing for barbers, butchers, and auto sales agencies provided by ordinances still on the city's books furnishes an example of the clutter of law that remains there. This is one more example of why it is time wasting and difficult to find applicable laws for modern situations when they must be looked up. More especially, it is a reason for the current City Council to bestir itself about completing codification of city ordinances begun five years ago. For a time the five-man council-manager government applied itself assiduously to the codification job; spent many long and ab* » i Two Can Filibuster It became obvious after Negro organizational leaders conferred with President Kennedy Saturday that he had considerable additional pressure besides his own behind him to get his civil rights program through Congress. Some Congressmen, including proponents of the legislation, already have warned they believe the kind of pressure proposed by the Negro groups would only make Southern and some Northern forces more buliheaded about their opposition. If one regards filibustering as unfair tactics — as closely akin to duress as can be achieved within a well-ordered legislative body — perhaps one may find at least an excuse for the type of pressure these pro-civil rights organizations indicate they have, in mind. If apprehension over possibility of a second Birmingham in Washington should prompt uninterrupted Congressional action on the program, the strategy behind the des- parate demonstrations in the South will become more apparent. * * * * » Which Is Worse? Passage of the state legislative redistricting bill long fought out in both houses is due in the Senate this week. It got through the House last \veck and now goes to the upper chamber accompanied by cries of "shameful and unconstitutional" from the Democrats, who are urging Governor Kcrner to veto it. Election followers will long remember the sorbed hours going over the work that was prepared. In view of the public's reaction to the council, and the realization that the form of government was not only under attack but would he thrown out, \ve can't say we blame the old council for slowing down, then giving up this monumental task. This fact, however, does not provide any excuse for the new council to neglect the task. The city has invested in considerable legal work of codifying the ordinances. The task should be pursued to completion by the new council, which presumably has Alton voters' full faith. governor's campaign cry preliminary to last fall's election, warning that whoever controlled the House this time would be controlling it for a long time to come because the redistricting came up at this session. We would assume, therefore, that the governor and his party intended to work out permanenc control of the legislature for their party, too f if they had been successful. Who knows how "shameful and unconstitutional" their plan might have been. Those who cry "unconstitutional" should ask themselves which is more so — redistricting which admittedly could never be perfect and please everybody, or failure to redistrict which would lead to an "at large" election in which everybody in the state voted on candidates for the entire House. Uiipaiiicked Prime Minister Harold Macmillan made an eloquent and pungent statement of his reason for refusal to resign amid the Profumo reverse English perfuming as he told a Conservative Party rally Saturday: "In 40 years of political life I have tried to do my best ... I will not make my whole life worthless or meaningless by being untrue to those convictions either through panic or obstinacy." His reference to panic doubtless explained his reason for remaining on as Prime Minister until his government could complete inquiry into the whole mess, determine its limits, and decide what solution to seek. That to "obstinacy" would hint that he does not intend to remain on past the time when he believes an election relatively uninfluenced by this storm can be conducted. Allen-Scott Report Moscow Agents Infiltrate America WASHINGTON — Hundreds of Moscow-trained agents are entering the U.S. as Cuban refugees. These Spanish-speaking Communists, some of them veterans of the Spanish civil war, have come in with the thousands of Cuban refugees who have been admitted to the U.S. since last fall's missile crisis. According to sworn testimony before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee by reliable, anti-Castro refugees, the Red agents are concentrating on filtrating the splintered refugee groups and are a principal reason for tho seething dissension among them. A highly regarded attorney in Miami, representing a number of these Cuban organizations, has turned over to the senators detailed evidence that Dictator Castro and his Russian henchmen personally elected about half of the passenger list of one Red Cross ship that recently brought approximately 1,000 refugees to the U.S. This startling information is supported by intelligence reports that the Kremlin is using t h e Cuban refugee traffic as a means of infiltrating Moscow-t rained agents into the U.S. and Latin American countries. The Miami attorney, who requested that his identification be kept secret because of the classified nature oi his activities, blunt' ly blamed this extraordinary sit uation on the lax screening of ref u g e e s by immigration authorities. He flatly charged that policies of the Kennedy Administration, as formulated by the State and Justice Departments, are permit' ting hundreds of Red agents easy access to the US. while barring anti-Castro raids on Cuba. The Senate committee, headed \ by Senator James Eastland, D- Miss., plans to ask FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover for his expert views on the number of Russian agents who have entered from Cuba and Ihe danger they present to the country's internal security. Intelligence Controversy donee that Cuba's foreign policy is laid down by Moscow, and Castro is administering with David Latvrpnce Doubts That 14th Passed Properly WASHINGTON - A significant hook on the scliool-segregntion problem, recent ly published, throws light on important phast-s of President Kennedy's "c i v 11 rights" program. It was written by James J. Kilpatrick, editor of the Richmond (Va.) News Leader, who a few years ago received the University of Missouri's gold modal for Distinguished Service to Journalism because of his successful campaign to free a Negro sentenced to life imprisonment for a murder he did not commit. Mr. Kilpatrick has made extensive research into the facts con- corning the alleged ratification of the 14th Amendment on which the new "civil rights" bills are in large part based. He presents — from the committee records in Congress, the speeches of members, the official acts — undisputed evidence concerning t h e exact method by which southern legislatures were coerced into "ratifying" the 14th Amendment. Mr. Kilpatrick writes: "On July 20, 1868, Secretary of State Sevvard issued a cautious proclamation certifying that the 14th Amendment had been ratified. There were, he surmised, 37 states then 'in the union.' Twenty-eight, by Seward's count, had approved the amendment, but he was doubtful about the whole affair. Among his 28 were Arkansas, Florida, North Carolina, Louisiana, and South Carolina, where ratification had been sanctioned by 'newly constituted and newly established bodies avowing themselves to be acting as the legislatures' of these states. If their resolutions were valid, and if the original ratifications of Ohio and New Jersey were still valid, notwithstanding their subsequent withdrawals, the amendment was a part of the Constitution. "On the following day, July 21, j Congress passed a joint resolution to resolve Seward's doubts. It ordered him to declare the amendment unconditionally adopted; and on July 28, adding the names of Alabama and Georgia, whose notifications had just been received, Seward declared the 14th officially a part of t h e constitution. Was the 14th Amendment thus egally and constitutionally added o the Constitution in 1868? It is exceedingly doubtful. Neither a resolution of the Congress nor a proclamation of a secretary of state can supersede the Constitution itself, If the state of Arkansas, Florida, North Carolina, Alabama, South Carolina, and Louisiana were 'in the union' in 1865, when their ratifications of the 14th Amendment were counted among the three-fourths necessary to adoption, it is impossible to understand how they legally could have been read out of the union by the act oi .March 2, 1867, put under military dictatorship, and ordered to ratify the 14th Amendment under duress. . . Denied Free Action "In any event, reliance musl be placed upon the coerced raciiii cations of either five or seven southern slates wchich at t h a time were denied a Republican government, denied represen tation in the Congress, and deniec the right to act freely upon the proposed amendment." Mr. Kilpatrick says this allegec constitutional provision — on which the Supreme Court reliec in its ruling in the school desegre gation cases in 1954—thus stem med from "tainted parenthood.' He points out, too, that neithe the Congress that submitted th' amendment, the states that ratifi ed it, nor the courts that rule THE LITTLE WOMAN 6) Kltii FttturM SynillMtt, Inc., 1»8.1.

Renders Forum Apathy Dangerous With one stroke of the pen the Supreme Court has stricken from our schools the Lord's Prayer, and with a second stroke freed the convicted Communist, Edward Yellin. Mr. Yellin had been identified by an FBI undercover man as a Communist, while, as a University of Illinois graduate student, but still under sentence from a federal court, he was given a $3,800 scholarship from the federal government, later cancelled, not because of his communist background, but because he might have to go to jail and not be able to continue his studies. Does this make sense to free a man like this because, as the 5-4 court ruling said, Mr. Yellin's "rights" had been violated, (he had asked for, and been refused a closed hearing). Just where do the rights of ie human race start and stop? p he reciting of the Lord's rayer (or any other prayer) as never been to my know- edge, compulsory in . public chools, but surely a privilege. I am not worried about region, it is here to stay. This is omething the communist sym- athizers fail to understand. It ias been said that "We who be- ieve, need not understand. And o those who do not believe, no understanding is possible." Therefore I do not worry for our religious rights, but for our state rights. It is the principle of the thing and the invasion of our rights I object to. Most of the newspaper head- ines assure that the people's icceptance of the edict was quiet and without commotion. Was it? Or is it the early symptoms of the apathy and co-ex- stence state to which we are being indoctrinated? The Communists gain ground with every 'right" we lose, however small.

According to tho latest estimate of the Central Intelligence Agon, the Soviet still has "between 12,500 and 17,500" troops in Cuba. The most recent report of the Defense Intelligence Agency places the number as high as 32,000. Neither the CIA nor D1A estimates support the State Department's disclaimer on the control of Cuba.

The Dispute This intelligence dispute has been raging inside the administration since early this month when I he White House mysteriously ordered Ihe first low-level reconnaissance flight over Cuba since last February. Until this flight was personally approved by the Pres- at least a half-dozen requests for such missions by military and intelligence authorities had been turned down. Aerial photos of this low-level flight revealed that two Soviet camps had been evacuated and that Russian combat unils had left these areas. The photos also showed new Soviet military depots, indicating the Russians were apparently trying to secrete their equipment. On the basis of this information, CIA and military intelligence are strongly inclined to the view that Soviet combat units are still on the Island. This belief is further supported by the fact that there is no positive information that Ihe troops have been withdrawn, although their exact whereabouts are unknown. «D 1963, The Hall Syndicate, Inc.) upon the question "understood o contemplated that the amend ment was intended to a b o 1 i s ! segregation in public schools." There is no record, accordini to Mr. Kilpatrick, that the schoo issue was ever raised in Congres in connection with the adoption o the 14th Amendment. (© 1863, N.Y. Herald-Tribune, Inc.)

It's the little known and often bungling "do-gooder" who gives them the most trouble. This little-known patriot has no ax to grind; he has accepted no "kickback" from higher ups; and if a hornet's nest gets in his way he destroys it, letting stings fall where they may. He is usually a home-owner in the 55,000-a-year bracket or less, with a sincere love for freedom and country. I am only one of thousands of "do-gooders" so let's act, write to our government officials, talk to neighbors and friends. Apathy is a dangerous heritage to leave to our grandchildren. LUCY E. HAGEN 216 S. 13th St. Wood River. * * * * Even Unto Death It looks to me as if J. F. K. is not content with just taxing the working people while they are living. He wants to tax us after we're dead. To me this is the most ridiculous thing I ever heard of. And believe me, I heard a few under the New Deal. JFK has asked Congress to require the payment of income taxes on the people who receive life insurance policies from their employers. Since the employe hasn't received any of this money and the proceeds are paid to his family after his death, JFK, wants the amount of the premium paid each year by the employer to be taxed as income to the worker, just the same as if they were paid wages. I firmly believe this man will make Mr. Roosevelt look like a piker when he gets through with the American taxpayer.

The plan, submitted to federal authorities three years previous, revived the projected superhighway from Alton to Enst St. Louis, and included a belt line around Alton from Delmar avenue on the Northside. Start depended on securing of right-of-way and allocation of a one-cent gas tax refund from the Madison County Board of Supervisors. Joseph Willoughby suffered a hip injury when struck by an automobile as he was crossing East Broadway near the glass works.

Dr. E. Lee Dorsett, St. Louis obstetrics and gynecology specialist speaking here under auspices of the Maternal Welfare Committee of Madison County, urged expectant mothers to throw aside false modesty, close their ears to superstitions and gossiping and consult their physicians early. These practices, he said, would help lower the mortality rate among mothers and newborn babies. William H. Bierbaum and Miss Vivian M.

June 24,1913 Valentine Wolf, Alton contractor, was low bidder for one of the largest grading contracts offered by Wood River Drainage & Levee District for additional work to control the Wood river channel. He bid at 18.92 cents a cubic ward on a 35,000 yard section of levee east of the Big 4 Railroad tracks near East Alton. Bids on other sections were rejected.

Victor Riesel: FBI vs. Private Eyes vs. Probers NEWARK N.J. — Angry Federal officials have thrown a dragnet around the private dragnets ivhich some Teamsters officials lave been throwing around government investigators. At least 40 special agents of :he FBI have been saturating the northern section of this state since young Teamsters rebel Walter lockner was gunned down in a nearby town. J. Edgar Hoover's men can move into the state because Glockner was atop the list of Federal witnesses prepared for the extortion trial of Teamsters international vice president Tony (Pro) Provenzano. But it is not the murder alone which keeps the federals in this city and in the crime jungles of surrounding communities. The Justice Department has been investigating private detectives hired by Tony Pro's giant local 560 to investigate and trail govern ment investigators. Not content with probing into government activities, Tony Pro also tapped their conversations in at least one special conference. This story begins when the opposition United Ticket group of which Glockner was a leader, protested the December election of Provenzano and company. The regional office of the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor-Management Reports (BLMR) s u b- penaed the local's books and records. Of course the local fought this in the federal courts. However, Federal Judge Thomas Meany ruled that the books must be opened to the Bureau' compli ance officers. But he did add that the documents must be kept confidential. To avoid any slight misinterpretation of the decision the federal investigators decided to examine the books in the union office at 707 Summit Ave., Union City. Not Amateurs These probers are not amateurs. They average about 15 years of investigatory experience. When hey got to the union headquarters they suddenly felt they were being positioned. There were !ive inspectors, especially picked by BLMR Regional Director Benjamin Naumoff. It took the men a few minutes, but soon they discovered they were being "bugged" by an electronic device behind a loud speaker over the door. They then moved the union books to offices in the Federal Building here, but not before they photographed the secret eavesdropping equipment. On the previous day one of the five men got into his car after working on the records. As he drove off he noted he was being followed. He zigged but the other car did not zag. After turning a few corners to make certain he was being trailed, he headed for a police station in nearby Teaneck. The other car followed — and drove right into the hands of the local constabulary. After this, further investigation disclosed t h at Provenzano had hired a private detective agency which supplied him with at least six men. As a result, FBI men, agents of the Internal Revenue Service, Today's Prayer 0 Lord, Who art the Light of life, open our eyes to the Light of truth wherever it may be discovered.

James, Jacksonville, Fla., minister, Riverside Avenue Christian Church. (O 1963 by the Division of Christian Education, National Council of the Churches of Christ In the U. S. A.) as well as the compliance officers of the Bureau of Labor-Management Reports have been looking deep into the entire operation of the now notorious local 560. The government's theory is that il it can crack the hold of the pro-Hot- fa group in the local, it can crack it in the state. Then there will be a powerful base of operations for the rebels right inside the Teamsters. The government agents are pouring over the minutes of meetings as well as the Local's books. It has been learned, for example, that when a union meeting voted Mr. Pro a $50,000-a-year raise, there were less than two per cent of the members present. At another meeting there were charges of violation of the rank- and-file democratic process section of the Landrum-Griffin Act Questions of OrlgUi There also arc questions about the origins of a defense pension fund, into which has gone part of the members' dues and the local's treasury. This has run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Yet it was set up for the benefit of the union officials who automatically developed vested rights in it. To top it all, Secretary of Labor Wirtz has moved in federal court to nullify the election to the Provenzano ticket. He has charged that the big local failed to provide adequate safeguards to insure a fair election by permitting improperly identified prsons to vote, by having impropqr electioneering at the polls and t h at the local failed to see to it that union members could vote without being subjected to threats of reprisals.

Are women troubled with guilt feelings? Answer: Yes, but not to the extent that men are. The average adult male strives to present a forthright, manly front, and is often troubled by anxiety and guilt when he fails to measure up to his ideal self-image. Of course women also have an ideal self-image, but they are much less demanding. Since women are forgiving toward others, they are forgiving of their own shortcomings as well.
