PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Editorial It's Tough Getting Bids tt.ihlc as it may seem, Alton trmsod the pood bidding season in calling for pro-<i on ils soutliMde interceptor sewer. Contractors indicated their lack of interest with bids 50 per cent over the engineer's estimate of cost. Now the city is about to wait another six months before trying again. We hope this development does not run the city up against .mother round of increasing wage scales in the construction industry. One we know is corning by next July — a second H-cent-an-hour boost in Laborers and Mod Carriers scale. The contract was an- announced only recently. Perhaps contractors can bid on the job figuring to finish it before that sets in. The city's hope is that enough contractors will have completed work in which they now arc engaged to make them interested in offering better bids six months from now. One difficulty with this line of reasoning is that other sewer building contracts — including some whoppers in the St. Louis area — are due for letting before too many more months pass by. We already have one contractor from a considerable distance engaged in building our sewage processing plant. Perhaps the gamble » * * Best Indication If any doubt of the effectiveness of President Kennedy's tour abroad still remained, it should have been shattered when Premier Khrushchev indicated he was about to make one of his own — into East Germany. We can now watch with interest what the Russian ruler decided to do as a counteraction to the President's tremendous welcome and eloquent speeches in West Germany. Mr. Kennedy left little doubt in his speeches as to the direct target of his trip abroad. It was French President Charles De- Gaulle, as we pointed out the other day in these columns. At the same time he was giving the Frenchman some calculated discomfort, however, Mr. Kennedy preached very effectively the gospel of a closer juncture between the elements of the West, and how it could benefit not only Europe and the United States, but the world as a whole. His trip already has proven far more effective than any of the most optimistic hoped for it. Now we can watch for what kind of crowds Khrushchev draws. the city plans to take is that other contractors from an equal distance will have slacked off with their work by that time and be read)' to move in. It would appear local contractors arc due to keep busy for some time to come. NV'c hope the schools don't run into the same thing if and when they ever get a chance to start building again. Red Bus tup Once more we catch Russia's space program in a bad spot. The United Space Agency Tuesday announced 24 pieces of a Russian space vehicle had been noted floating around in space within the past year. The accident occurred last Oct. 24. Russia didn't disclose it. No disclosure has been made as to whether part of the debris sighted and recorded by the National Aeronautics and Space Agency included a man's body. Reports now have been issued, however, that several manned flights were believed to have cracked up. Russia may be trying to convince us she has those missiles so safe that a woman can be sent up in one. Apparently she can't get the men back 100 per cent, though. Dubious Move In its final form, waiting approval by the Senate of an amendment, a bill has been virtually approved by the legislature allowing Southern Illinois University to offer courses in law, medicine, and pharmacy, subject to permission of the State Board of Higher Education. The bill originally was reported as merely granting SIU permission to offer courses in these professions, and was subject to question Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Will JFK Blow Olive Branch Bit? in that it seemed an attempt to bypass the Board of Higher Education during the formative years of its practices and the recognition of its authority. While we think the bill in its present form is not as objectionable as it originally was, we believe it indicates a trend of thinking at SIU that brooks little if any interference from the State Board of Higher Education. The correct procedure, in view of the higher education board's purpose of achieving a balanced program in the state, should have been to get its approval before taking the request to the legislature. In short, if the legislature grants the request of SIU, the action will say to the Board of Higher Education that the General Assembly favors the proposal and may approve it finally, regardless of what the board may eventually decide. One such action doubtless will not undermine the board in its present tender conditiion of extreme youthfulness, but a few more similar ones could. -• * ^ »• .f Illinois Exports One of the things that continue to surprise Illinoisans is this state's occasionally repeated reminder that we are a strong foreign trade area, Gov. Kerner announced Tuesday he was preparing to go abroad next fall and beat the drums for more European trade with Illinois manufacturers. The St. Lawrence Waterway, bringing shipping from abroad right into Chicago ports, is the central cause of this development. Now our industrial production, says Mr. Kerner, is about 1J per cent for foreign shipment. As an inland state we begin the realize the importance of the national measures being taken to stimulate foreign trade. David Lawrence Turning Point for Kennedy? WASHINGTON—President Kennedy may be coming to a turning point in his politic-it career. It could cost bim re-election in 19fi4. Any issue that touches the home or the pocketbook or the job of a citizen takes precedence over all other questions. No matter what an administration has accomplished in other fields, the voter tends to register a negative verdict if a grievance directly affects his economic future. The Kennedy administration has opened up a Pandora's box of trouble for itself. An executive order—which isn't based on a single law passed by Congress—has just been issued requiring that a virtual discrimination against White workers be imposed as a means of removing discrimination against Negro workers. The new order not only applies to all businessmen having contracts with the government for goods or services, but extends to contractors for any constmction in which federal funds are in any WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26, 1963 THE LITTLE WOMAN PLASTIC TRASH CANS ALU COLORS 9 King fMlurn Syndicate.

It is perhaps the most sweeping decree ever issued by any American president without authority tfiven him by Congress or the Constitution. It involves tens of billions of dollars of business transactions which the government carries on every year by contract or through its programs of loans, grants or insurance of funds for construction of buildings, repairs and alterattions, as well as the creation of new highways and repairing old ones. The political effect of this will not be felt for several months, but—judging by letters received from different parts of the country—it will produce one of the most deep-seated antagonisms known in American politics.

The East Ger man guards across the wall wil be watching. The West Berliner will be watching. The diplomat; of Europe will be watching. Bu perhaps most of all, the policy makers in the Kremlin will bi watching; also his own adviser back in Washington. What they and the Kremlin wil be watching is to see whether the President blows his own Ameri can university speech of June 10 This was the speech which pointed to the 20,000,000 casualties suffered by the Russians in t h e last war, also pointed to the fact that Russia and the United States had never been opposed to each other in war, and arguec that war was so terrible we have to co-exist. The speech was considered such an important overture to the USSR that it wa.s published in ful in Izvestia and Pravda, and began to warm up some of the recent hard-line policies of the Kremlin. It also brought renewed attacks on Khrushchev from the Red Chinese, wa.s labeled by the Chinese as a "cunning and sinister plot to divide Moscow and Peking," and probably hastened the signing of the U.S.-USSR agreement for a hot teletype line between the Kremlin and the Pentagon. Finally, it may have had something to do with the recent speech by Soviet Ambassador Fedorenko at the U.S. withdrawing, that onetime Khrushchev boast that he would "bury us." Kremlin Divisions However, the speech was greeted by skepticism by some inside the Kremlin. There is by no means unity inside the Communist world, and some Kremlin advisers suggested lhal the President didn't really mean what he said when he talked so eloquently about better understanding, that actually the speech was a tactical device to put t h e United Stales in a good light prior to a deadlock on nuclear test ban negotiations. So today in Beflin will be the real test of whether Kennedy meant what he said in his American university speech. There is no place which makes a better platform for hell-bent- for-Ieather speeches than the ground adjacent to the Berlin Wall. Here the passions of t h e West Berliners are likely to ignite the most impassive speaker. Here it is routine to open old wounds, wave the flag, aaid goad the Russian Bear. The President will have alongside him as he travels through the charred rubble near the Berlin Wall one of the most famous and effective goaders of the Russian Bear — Gen. Lucius Clay. Clay will be standing beside him on the steps of the Rathaus — the Berlin City HaJl — when the President dedicates a new plaque on the Freedom Bell, a gift from Americans to the people of Berlin during the Berlin Airlift. That airlift marked a great victory for the free world over Stal- nism, and the Freedom Bell is a ;reat monument to its memory. They should not be forgotten. But according to the President's own speech at American university, things have changed since then.

MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS years. His body has been removed from its place of honor in the Kremlin. Today's meeting between Berliners and President Kennedy on the western side of the Wall will be meant for headlines. On how those headlines read will depend the future test ban talks in Moscow, the talks between the Russians and the Chinese, and most of all whether the more moderate forces inside the Kremlin take seriously the Olive Branch in President Kennedy's America university speech. Mouse on the Moon Several top Soviet diplomats attended a private screening the other day of the movie, "The Mouse on the Moon," which spoofs both the United States and Russia. The film portrays a tiny, insignificant country landing astro- lauts on the moon ahead of the -<reat powers. Remarked one i.f the Russian guests after the picture: "It is perhaps unfortunate that this film is only make-believe. It might give both our countries a breathing spell if a small country did get ahead of us once in a while."

(© 1W>3. Bell Syndicate, luc.) Already a protest is being raised by the white worker who fears he will be displaced at his job, though the order hasn't yet taken effect. But even before its issuance. Negro leaders were demanding that a certain quota of Negroes be hired—they are asking for 25 per cent of the work force on all jobs let by New York city to private contractors. This has raised fears that the merit system will be brushed aside by compulsion and that the number of unemployed whites will materially increase. The President's edict reads in part as follows: "The contractor will take such fiction with respect to any subcontract or purchase order as the contracting agency may direct as a means of enforcing such provisions, including sanctions for noncompliance." This includes government supervision of "employment, upgrading, demotion or transfer," as well as "layoff or terminattion, rates of pay or other forms of compensation." Doesn't Explain The government order says exemptions will be made but doesn't explain exactly under what circumstances, thus leaving the impression that the purpose of th executive order is to intimida 1 all employers. The net effect wi be also to frighten white em ployees about their jobs, and tha is where the political impact wi begin to spread throughout th country. It is already disturbin many persons directly employee in. government departments, sue as the post office. A politicalrj motivated employment s y s t e cannot succeed even with the bes intentions and supposedly hig purpose. Perhaps the most powerful nega tive force that has been unlcashe thus far is in connection with th efforts of governments of North ern states, like New York, to den to all white children the right t go to schools which are attendee only by students from their imme diate neighborhoods. This may re quire that quotas of both whit and Negro children be transferrei considerable distances by bus » as ti eliminate "racially imbal ancecl" schools—defined by the commissioner of education of NP\\ York State as schools in whicli the enrollment is more than 50 pei cent Negro. Already students from the Negro schools in Nesv York City are being moved into pre dominantly white schools. It is be ing urged that white children bo similarly moved to schools in No gro neighborhoods. All this is al legdly an effort to provide bettei education for the Negro children Exodus Looms So if the handling of the schoo, p r o b I u m causes aggravation among white citizens and if there is an uneasiness among workers He'd Like Names I have received a number of let ters and phone calls on Holmes Taft and Warren, all in agree ment, except for one person wh signed himself only "Wood Rive Teacher."

As to the Atlanta Constitution, I would be glad to read it. This is a free country, and we have a free press, and I am glad of that. A school teacher should know that this is now about the only country left where people such as we can express our views openly on a given subject. If someone does not agree with me I can take it.

Penning Ave. Wood River been proposed. Any of them would be very difficult of enactment, because it is so hard to gel enough people to understand, and to become enthusiastic about any action of this kind. And even the best of these, if enacted, are not going to do the job if you still have a government of men, instead of laws in which judges make both law and Constitution whatever they say it is and want it to be. Our problem is with men, not with the legal framework of their actions. And the simple solution —and the only solution—is to make men behave. This you will not do by merely giving them new laws.

Killed were Mrs. Kathryn Evabelle Lee, 22, of Greenfield, while picking apricots, and Frank Plessa, 31, Springfield, by a downed electric wire at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb Plessa of Glen Carbon. The rainfall of 8.49 inches was the heaviest of any June in 10 years. The mercury dropped from a high of 95 to 59. Charles Roark. West Alton, was fatally injured when struck by a wind deflector on the door of an automobile driven by a St. Louis woman as he walked along Missouri Rte. 99, south of Clark Bridge. He was survived by his wife and 10 children. Jerseyville residents approved a school bond issue of $30,000 for erection of a new grade school building, 131 to 20. Worden approved an $8,000 bond issue to build a water distributing system, 210 to 171. Both the Jerseyville and Worden projects were to be upped to $100,000 each through grants by the WPA. Ed Rousseau defeated Jack Pike, 3 to 2, in the grand finals of the Rock Spring Handicap Golf Tournament, which had featured five flights of 16 players each going through the playoffs. Deaths included those of: Mrs. Emma H. Hassmunn at St. Anthony's Infirmary following a week's illness; Mrs. Mary R. Hess in St. Joseph's Hospital, following surgery: Mrs. Nellie Fitzzgibbons McDonald; John Allen in his Greenville home, where he was born 77 years before; Bertram A. Dodson, Olterville. All available graduate nurses were called into service at the hospitals, as a result of (1) the large number of operative cases, (2) three 8-hour shifts, and (3) the number of student nurses on vacation. Both St. Joseph and Alton Memorial hospitals reported an unusual number of emergency appendectomies. The 12-hour shifts had been reduced gradually to 8-hour shifts. Institutional and public-health nursing positions were taking heavy toll on private nursing positions. Heavy black smoke billowed from a fire at the Union Tank Car Co.'s section of Standard Oil Co. and precipitated a call for all the firefighting equipment at the refinery. June 26^1913 Gov. E. F. Dunne signed into law the new Illinois equal suffrage act greatly broadening the voting rights of women. Starting July 1, women were to have the right to vote on all offices unmentioned by the state constitution. This means women could vote for presidential electors, some county officers, and all city officers except police magistrate. Complete suffrage for women awaited amendment of the constitution — a step which the Telegraph urged in an editorial. Illinois women long had held the right to vote on school officials. Cathedral High school graduated a class of two — both girls — at commencement exer* rises in Spalding auditorium. The graduates presented with diplomas by the Rev. Father E. L. Spalding were Misses Elizabeth Loretta Hennelley and Marie Elizabeth Murphy. Both graduates already had passed examinations qualifying them to teach in the public schools. Miss Hennelley was to teach in Mason school and Miss Murphy in the Godfrey district. The Str.

The President's little-publicizec snub of President Salazar, whc invited him to Lisbon, has virtual ly slammed the door on resolving the deadlock over this country' continued use of the strategi Azores air and naval bases. Portuguese officials here a r c making no secret that Salaza views the rebuff on his invitation as further evidence that the Presi dent is unwilling to compromise on the critical political issues o Angola and Mozambique, the rea cause of the deadlock on the bases. Both U.S. and Portuguese negotiators have reported to their governments that only a "high level 1 understanding on these political issues can break the bases stalemate. The President's military advisers, including Admiral Robert Anderson, slated to become Ambassador to Portugal in August, unavailingly urged him to accept Salazar's invitation to further the prospects of working out a compromise. They argued that the Azores bases are vitally needed for (1) the Polaris submarines, and (2) increasing our "limited war" capabilities in Africa and the Middle East. But State Department authorities, led by Secretary Rusk, opposed the Portugal visit on the ground it would complicate relations with the African nations that are seeking Portugal's ouster from Angola and Mozambique. They contended there was no grounds for a compromise, and therefore no purpose would be served by a Kennedy-Salazar meeting at this time. The Divider The administration's adamai position in the deadlocked Azore base negotiations was frankly ac mitted by Assistant Secretary Wi liam Tyler at a private meetin with the House Foreign Affair Committee. Questioned about the long-stai: ed negotiations by Representativ E. Y. Berry, R-S.D., Tyler saw little hope of either side's givin; any ground. "The Portuguese governmen has a basically different concep of the trend of events in Afric from what we have," said th chief of European Affairs.

The Portuguese government feels the trouble they have had in Angola and Mozambique is the re- suit of external acts of aggression. They are asking that we support this position, especially in the United Nations, in exchange for the continued use of these bases. This we cannot do. "Then this is actually a clash over basic foreign policy and not just a disagreement over how much we are to pay for using the bases?" asked Representative Berry. MIRROR OF YOUR MIND "That is correct," replied Tyler. "There are basic differences. Portugal also feels the U.S. government should tell other African countries to lay off and if we did that she would not be having "hese problems." "Are we going to do that?" continued Berry. "There is no disposition on the part of our government to do at," replied Tylor. For the time being, he added, 'ortugul is permitting the U.S. to use the bases until the end of he year, but if no agreement is vorked out by then, they will lave to be given up.
