MONDAY, JUNE 24, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE NINE Paul Simon Writes: Two Big Items Still Untouched By SEN .PAUL SIMON With only a short time to go before this legislative session closes, It appears that two big items untouched and unfinished which will remain unaccomplished are: 1) Substantial improvement in our revenue structure; and 2) Proper steps forward to accomplish court reform. When the people of the state voted for the judicial amendment In 1962, they did It with the belief that they were making some substantial progress In taking our courts out of politics. While much has been done, one great evil remains untouched— a great many political appointments will continue to be made by our judges. Violates Good Sense In my opinion this violates the spirit of the judicial amendment voted gy the people — and it certainly violates good sense. The theory of our government is that the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government are independent of each other in their operation. Having judges appoint people to operate government agencies is contrary to the whole theory of our government. A judge should have as his duties the finding of innocence or guilt, not the responsibilities administration. of ARTHRITIS-RHEUMATISM Now. . .Blessed Relief from ARTHRITIS Without Drugs or Surgery If you act promptly, an amazing illustrated new FREE book that may change your whole life will be rushed to you by return mail.

A postcard will do.— Adv These appointments will also mean that the long arm of politics — in its worst sense — will unquestionably enter into many court appointments. Our aim should be to keep our courts out of politics, not in politics. One of the reasons that internationally courts of our country are not .highly respected is that we have made just the mistakes this session of the legislature has made. Unfair Tux Load In the field of revenue reform, most of the evils that exist today in an unfair distribution of the tax load in our state will remain. We talked much about revenue reform, but did little. It will take another session— and more public interst — to accomplish anything substantial in the field of revenue reform. Since this is the last column of this legislative session, perhaps this is a good point to add that there is no major problem Illinois faces that cannot be solved by more public interest. Our government will be about as good as our interest is. To those of you who have read this column during the session, my thanks; to those of you who have written letters and done more than just talk about whatj state government must do, even greater thanks. My appreciation also to my wife, who has typed these columns each week, stuffed them in envelopes and mailed them to more than 300 newspapers in the stale. I must give credit also the publisher of this newspaper who — whether he agreed with me or not — tried to stimulate your interest in stafe government by running this column. I hope you do not lose that interest. .

BROADWAY HO 5-7721 *********************** I Jf Jf Jf Jf Jf Jf Suggests Stop Signs At Rail Intersections CHICAGO (AP)—A railroad executive Saturday suggested that Illinois counties and towns install regulation red and white octagonal stop signs at railroad crossings. Joseph H. Wright, vice president and general counsel of the Illinois Central Railroad, said the use of these signs and the enforcement of crossing laws and regulations would "minimize or eliminate needless loss of life and property." He said in Michigan regulation stop signs have reduced motor vehicle accidents at some 600 highway-rail crossings 85 per cent and fatalities 98 per cent. "These signs have proved to carry greater authority in getting motorists to stop, look and listen before proceeding over railroad tracks than the traditional cross- buck sign," Wright said in a statement commenting on a recent survey by the Interstate Commerce Commission. The Commission's report said failure to stop or exercise caution, or to comply with safely laws is the principal cause of accidents at highway-rail crossings. The ICC report summarized hearings on crossing accidents which take 1,300 lives and injure 3,600 in about 3,400 accidents a year. The report stated that weather and train speed were not significant factors in such accidents. Most of the accidents, it said, occured in clear weather during daylight hours. During 20 days of public hearings, in 1962, the Commission heard testimony by 79 witnesses representing rail and motor carriers, rail unions and public safety officials. refused to let him go out Tuesday and then shot his father and mother after his father arrived home.
