Now it appears voters, themselves, stand a chance of getting to express their opinions on the proposition. The House Wednesday passed by a tremendous majority a constitutional amendment providing just that, and if the Senate passes it by a two- thirds vote, we will be able to ballot on the question in November, 1964. Illinois is one of few states remaining under our present plan of biennial legislative sessions. The financial picture is more difficult to solve under this system. And we have fewer opportunities for the legislators to get back into Springfield and observe whether the budgets are being wasted. It also enables budget waste to concide with primaries and elections. One of the most important arguments for more frequent sessions, however, is the possibility that it will develop closer response of the legislature to the public needs and sentiments, and greater responsibility of the legislators, themselves, toward their constituents. We regret that Rep. Leland Kennedy's proposal for longer terms for legislators did not meet with success. It would improve the quality of our legislation even further. As it is now, members of the legislative body in Illinois with the biggest and most intricate job to do get the shortest terms of any in the state to learn it and perform it. House members have two-year terms now. Senators have four years compared to four years for city council, town board, and county board members. Another constitutional amendment up to the Senate is that eliminating the ban against mination counters. stores and hotels, Mr. Kennedy i states that, because these faciii- consccutivc terms for sheriffs and county ities are open to the public, they jare not at all "like a private home do with a boycott of certain beer eel by a legitimate group who. at brands by the ministers' group in Alton. Mrs. Simons challenged the ministers involved in the beer d'spute about their stand on whiskey, wine, other name brands of private club to which the|beer, and all intoxicants," etc. or a lowner invites only the guests lie !selects." This differentiation has ! never ocen sanctioned by the i courts as a basis for interfering treasurers. We have urged before that both should be permitted to run for re-election on their records, if we continue to elect them at ail.

David Davis of Bloomington, a Republican, gave a new aspect to the fight in General Assembly over state aid to schools by pointing out that this part of school financing had slipped from 28 per cent to only 20 per cent of the total. While state aid has remained at the same level for some years, local taxes have been going up continuously. In short, if the state does give a generous raise — and a bill providing for just such a thing has been sent to Gov. Kerner now — it will be a move toward restoring the old percentage balance between the two sources of public school revenue. j that, because a business concern j deals with the public, it may be subject to complete regulation or possibly extermination by the federal government. This alleged authority is derived from the clause of (he Constitution which gives Congress the power to regulate interstate commerce, and Mr. Kennedy cited various laws j passed by Congress in this field.!

MILLER, Rlc. 1, Jerseyvillc June 27,1938 The tentative budget for the school fiscal period opening July 1 totaled $352,537, with receipts estimated at $662,691.02. Under the receipts was included: for re-appropriation — $43.104 cash on hand in the educational fund and $23.626.26 in the building fund: and from taxes, $299.560 for educational purposes, and $12,000 for building purposes. The Granite City Press-Record reported thai slot machines were "whirring again" in the Tri-Cities area, outside the city. The machines had been removed from taverns shortly before the primary election in April. Award of a contract for a new heating plant at Hose House No. 1 tolled the demise of the "rannoball stove" used during the horse and steam pumper days of Alton's fire department. The James Barrett Sheet Metal Contracting Co. won the contract with a $715 bid. Mrs. L. M. Cummings was elected president of Alton Unit No. 126, American Legion Auxiliary. The Alton American Legion nominated John Dick for commander of its post No. 126, and completed plans for its July 4th picnic at Roi'k Spring Park. George Cox was named general chairman of the picnic committee. A well was being sunk at Grand Theater to supply cool water for an air-conditioning unit. Work on a similar job at the Princess Theater was halted at 40 feet when no water was found. The Karmelkorn Shop restaurant on Ensl Broadway near Market street was purchased from Mr. and Mrs. Fred Phillips by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Kelly of St. Louis. Raymond, 8, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. Reid of East Alton, sustained serious injuries to his face and hands when a firecracker exploded in his hand. He had burns to his face, hands, lips, and inside of his mouth. The Girls Drum and Bugle Corps sponsored by Wood River American Legion Post won first place in a contest held in Sportsman's Puik, St. Louis. Money found in the front yard of the George Newman home on Short street, Bethalto,' was returned to Joseph Gavin, identified from his billfold papers being chewed by a dog at the Newman home. A Bible salesman, noting the scattered money, notified Mrs. Newman, who traced Gavin through a classifeid ad. June 27,1913 Lincoln Beachcy, retired stunt flyer, who tor several years had defied death in the air, wa* gripped by stage fright as he soloed in a vaudeville stage attraction at the Airdrome. Nerves which had never bothered the 26-year-old flyer in an airplane went on a rampage after he' made a brave start before the footlights and an audience that filled the outdoor theater. His voice cracked, then for about 30 seconds his vocal chords tightened to where he was speechless. Movies of some of his stunts he was describing saved his premier performance. They gave him time to get his wavering voice under control. Beachey told a Telegraph reporter who watched from the wings he never before had been so frightened. He had grounded himself, he said, because of deaths of a number of flyers who attempted to emulate some of his hair- raising feats. Beachey was breaking in at Alton before moving on to Chicago with his lecture tour. The Bluff Line was to abandon steam locomotives for gasoline-powered motorcars on all main line runs through Alton. First test of a motorcar had been so successful that a second had been added. The road's only steam trains now operating here were those serving the Grafton branch. City officials expected no future complaints about noise from carnivals. Only one spot was left where the traveling tented shows could set up. This was the remote "old circus grounds," east of East End Place. Next carnival scheduled here had been booked under Moose lodge sponsorship for July 7. Milk being destributed In Alton by all established dealers was meeting required standards under test, according to the Rev. S. D. McKenny, city milk inspector. Tests thus far revealed no use of preservatives and showed the milk safe for babies, he said. Quality of a few samples of milk, however, had been "just high enough to get by." The long dry spell, only recently and partially broken, had defeated initial efforts of Rock Spring Country Club to establish a good turf on its golf course. One batch of 5150 worth of grass seed had been a total loss. Weeds had taken over what little sprouted, and several areas were being plowed in preparation for reseeding.

Sl/.c vs. Evil Some of the Democratic leaders CROSSWORD - -. - By Eugene Sheffer 10. 31 34 47 13 Kb 3-2. 48 3fc, 14- >7 3o 4-Z M 44- NEW YORK—In mid-July most ol America's water-borne craft— ncluding vacation-bound vessels, lugs, barges, freighters and tankers and even some ferries— may lie as idle as painted ships on a canvas in an old seafarers' tavern. Such paralysis almost struck at midday on Thursday, June 20. The National Maritime Union (NMU), led by an angry Joe Curran, had alerted 2,500 pickets to hit all U. S. ports—on all coasts, on the Great Lakes, and even along thousands of miles of inland waterways. These pickets did not strike- but it took the White House, vice president Lyndon Johnson, Labor Secretary Willard Wirtz, Assistant Secretary of Labor James Reynolds, intercontinental and transcontinental telephone calls to make a temporary peace. Those pickets may be ordered out again to parade before coastal and inland waterway docks some 16 days after the sailing of the j now controversial S.S. Maximus from the port of Philadelphia. That's about the length of time it is expected to take the freighter Maximus to make the round trip to and from Havana with its Bay of Pigs ransom cargo. It is manned by Curran's affiliated Brotherhood of Maritime Officers, a 26- year-old union once a member of John Lewis' United Mine Workers District 50. When the S.S. Maximus returns, another union, the Marine Engineers Benefical Assn. (MEBAi, will demand that MEBA ship engineers replace the present crew— which won't get off. MEBA will picket. Then the National Maritime Union will back up its own Brotherhood of Marino Officers by deploying 2,500 pickets across the continent. Few realize what this could mean. If these pickets are successful, they first will tie up this mam- But suddenly Southern Belljmooii. to plant its telephones on the) Telephone, part of the giant AT&T empire, protested to Jimmy Webb.

Tug Tieup Some of them will immediately immobilize the harbor's tugs. Since many of these are owned by railroads, NMU plans to picket ail depots and freight yards where they are linked to the waterfront. In January '61 pickets which tied up the tugs also slopped some of the rail lines for hundreds of miles inland. And inland is where tills battle between two rival AFL-CIO ship unions is headed. One of Curran's aides told me that the pickets would hit the inland waterways system. No mere threat this. In the past NMU pickets have been strung out along 6,000 miles in eight states affecting major river ports from Pittsburgh, Pa., to Brownsville, Texas. Now, says the NMU spokesman, they will tie up transportation on the entire 28,0000 miles of inland waterways along which move barges carrying hundreds of millions of dollars worth of cargo. Some of this is mighty vital- especial ly the equipment bound Today's Prayer Most gracious heavenly Father, grant unto us the courage to face ourselves, to uncover the selfishness, and provide us the insight to understand why we act as we do. Help us to recognize the wrong within us before we condemn the evil around us. Make us aware of our own faults first, rather than the faults of others, and grant that we may seek Thy help to overcome these weaknesses. Through Christ we pray. Amen. —Roland R. De Lapp, Minneapolis, Minn., principal, Anthony Junior High School. (© 1963 by the Division of Christian Education, National Council of the Churches of Christ In the U. S. A.) "Inland 1 also means the Great Lakes. A stoppage there would affect more shipments which must be piled up during the Ice-free Hmmer months. There is considerable transport of wheat and other grain. The ore will be needed by the steel industry. The grain must be moved before foreign competitors grab up the market. Foreign competitors would make buy on the outer ports, too. The NMU picketing, which would be respected by most other waterfront unions, would be aimed only at U.S. shipping. Last Thursday, the picketing would have affected 230 ships in 32 major ports. But as additional vessels return to U.S. ports 675 In all could be affected. If these freighters and passenger vessels were immobilized, the trade would shift to foreign craft. Not Bluffing I don't believe Joe Curran Is bluffing. When he threatened to unloose the 2,500 pickets that Thursday afternoon he was telephoned by Secretary of Labor Willard Wirtz. The Cabinet official got several half hour postponements of picketing from Curran while pressure was put on Jesse Calhoon, president of MEBA, and its chief counsel, Lee Pressman, to yield its claims to the S.S. Maximus. At two p.m. Wirtz called Curran and said nothing could be done and would Curran hold off the picketing and come to a meeting in Washington that night. Curran said no. Angrily Wirlz retorted he would go on the air and tell the public that Curran was defying the government. Curran replied that he was not defying anyone, and that the pickets would hit all ports if the rival union persisted in its claims to the jobs aboard the S.S. Maximus.
