PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 1963 Editorial County Leads in 4 Great Debate' Madison county, if our conjectures are correct, made history once more Wednesday night Its bar association sponsored what it firmly believes is the first answer to United States Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren's challenge to debate thoroughly the three amendments proposed for the federal Constitution, That it did so hardly more than a week before the nation's observance of Independence Day is thoroughly appropriate. And the manner in which it staged the event was outstanding, as well. The Bar featured as participants in the debate one of Florida's outstanding jurists, a representative of a state's rights state, against one of St. Louis' most prominent representatives of the profession of law. The one-sided vote against the proposed amendments demonstrated a deep apprehen- sion among attorneys over major meddling with the federal jurisprudence system such as the three amendments threatened. While the other two amendments arc. in our estimation, dangerous to the unity of the country, perhaps the most dangerous is the third one, which would deprive federal courts of the right to rule in cases of redistricting within states for state legislatures. We think it important that some kind of standardizing influence be set in the manner of choosing our state legislatures as well as Congress. For the choice of such legislatures can drastically determine the quality and type of governmental activity in any state. Some of the practices being followed were definitely repugnant to the concept of government by proportional representation. Indirectly, methods of selecting legislatures could have federal repercussions, including the selection of members of Congress. 'Breather' on Sewer In Order Completely within its rights in the matter, the City Council took a breather on the million dollar South Side interceptor sewer contract Wednesday night. While some observers might view it as » case of fainst heart in view of the recommendation from Director of Public Works Paul A. Lenz that the excessive by over 50 per cent bids on the project be rejected, we think a new and comparatively untried board of alderman had every right to want further time for contemplation of the general scene. The council is responsible for the final decision, and it could want to protect itself against the "Monday morning quarterbacks," with which Alton seems to be particularly replete. The aldermen did the same thing on the question of reappointing the chief of police— then after thinking it over, confirmed him. A bid more than 50 per cent in excess of the engineers' estimate for constructing such a sewer is not exactly a professional compliment. And these particular engineers need make no apologies for their standing. Two firms of high character and wide reputation prepared the plans for the sewer, and on these plans and estimates the city's bond is- sues for financing the project had to be based It is hardly conceivable that they should miss an estimate as far as the contractors' bids went over them, even considering the estimates were made several years ago. In fact, the time lag between making of estimates and filing of bids was only routine for such projects. To disregard the estimates would be to wreck virtually the whole statutary routine for financing and building such public projects. It would mean that it was impossible for an engineer to estimate the cost increase during the time lag between completion of estimates and calling of bids. On the other hand, Alton people like to ask many questions about such problems. And the questions continue for some years after the original occasion for them. A hasty action Wednesday night might easily have left the aldermen in a position to become the butts of such questions in the future. We pav tribute to the three who had the courage and decisiveness to vote against delay in throwing out the bids, but we can sympathize with those who wanted to gain a more complete understanding of the problem and have more opportunity to ask questions of their own— before they reject the bids. Histoire DeGaulle State of Chicago? French President Charles DeGaulle made about the reply you'd have expected to President Kennedy's allusions to France's efforts at breaking up western unity and our promises to go to Europe's aid in time of war. Late Thursday he said that while he accepted Mr. Kennedy's pledges of unity in war as well as in peace with our European allies, he could not keep from recalling that the United States had been laggard twice in entering world wars started in Europe. President DeGaulle may have his history right as far as he goes. He forgets, however, that the previous wars followed a long period of individual nationalistic jockeying inch as that in which he's attempting to lead France right now, jockeying that left those situations outside our area of responsibility. He also neglects to mention that this country neither time had entered any kind of a solid military alliance with European nations before these wars, nor had it pledged to go to their aid. Nor had it taken as great a part in trying to keep Europe's affairs straightened out, recognizing that some such effort by an outsider was needed, as we have lately. We have a rather definite feeling President DeGaulle has written off in his mind all Europe's history since World War II, just Mayor Richard J. Daley has polished up the old Chicago threat to become a separate state. He made the proposal—perhaps a bit facetiously—while urging the cause of home rule for his city during an Illinois Senate finance committee hearing on a proposal for a half-cent hike in the municipal sales tax. The Chicago statehood proposal is not new. It keeps cropping up every 10 years or so. And, for some reasons, there are those who wish the secession might come about. Chicago has ever been a complicating influence in our legislature, with its overwhelming political power, its factions which move into the General assembly and throw their weight about to force their idea aims, the while holding up other legislation. Yet Chicago does pour a large amount of tax money into our coffers because it is the magnet of wealth for our state. We doubtless would find that, while Chicago causes us our difficulties, the state would experience difficulty in fording the financial rivers without her. as he apparently has written off all the lessons of the later chapters in his present poli- Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round JFK Won't Push Weapons Program Behind President Kennedy's decision not to press Prime Minister Macmillian for a multi-lateral striking force was the advice of Chancellor Adenauer to delay, plus very cold water poured on the project by leaders of the British Labor Party, The man who will be the next Defense Minister of England has assured Kennedy in very forceful terms that the Labor Government, when it takes office, will not go for the MLF. George Brown, No. 2 man in the Labor Party and the so-called "Shadow Minister for Defense," was in Washington most of last month telling everyone around Kennedy and finally the President himself that Great Britain, under Labor, would not want a multi-lateral nuclear force; that it was too costly, too vulnerable, too impractical. Even if Macmillan accepted it, the Labor Party would not be bound by his commitment. George Brown is charming, intelligent, and above all Frank Various of JFK's staff tried to change his mind. Finally, as he was about to see the President for a final session, McGeorge Bundy, Kennedy's Defense Acfviser, remonstrated: "Do you really mean that you and Wilson believe this? He referred to Harold Wilson, who will be the next Labor Prime Minister. "Why do you think we put it down in writing" replied Brown. "When I go in there" - and he motioned to the President's door— "I'm going to ask him 'Do you and Lyndon Johnson really mean reasons why the next Labor Government will be opposed to arm- ng surface vessels with nuclear weapons but proposed some sensible alternatives. He also assured Kennedy that Labor will be as ;ood or a better ally than the Conservatives. "You see we don't go around wearing the Union Jack on our waistcoats," he said. Brown proposed that all nuclear weapons be turned over to the United States, including Britain's. It is too expensive for the two allies to duplicate each other on nuclear research and stockpiling. With the money thus saved, he proposed bolstering British naval defenses in the Far East where the United States is weak and is laving trouble in Laos.

(O l«63. Bell Syndicate, me.) David Lawrence High Court Ruling Not Definite WASHINGTON — A prominent United States senator was tolling his friends this story the other day: "A public-school teacher who entered her classroom after luncheon a few days ago saw a group of small boys kneeling on ihe floor and huddled together. She asked: " 'What are you doing?' " 'We're just shooting dice, 1 was the reply. " 'Oh,' said the teacher with a sigh of relief. 'That's all right. I was afraid you were engaged n prayer.' " Eleven days have passed since he Supreme Court of (lie Unitec: States issued its 8-to-l decision >roclaiming that prayer in the school room, whether voluntary 01 not, is forbidden by the Constitution. Yet the school authorities hroughout the country who have sought an explanation of what is or is not permissible have n o t .ound the answer. In the District of Columbia, for nstance, the school board, which would like very much to elevate he moral standards of its pupils, inds itself virtually checkmated vhen the subject of religion is in- roduccd. In deference to the High Court, the board has eliminated he exercises in which readings from the Bible had been carried on for years in the classrooms. But the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, which by act of Con- ;ress contains the phrase "one nation under God..." was left in he routine. Colonel West A. Ham- Iton, a member of the board, asked certain questions which were referred to the corporation counsel for reply. One question ivas as follows: Question "May students spontaneously i ngage in devotional services on heir own without direction or guidance from the teacher?" It was also asked whether the 'ourt decision prohibits the hold- ng of school assemblies at which Christmas carols and Easter lymns are sung, and whether lergymen can pronounce the ben- diction at commencement exer- ises. Another query was this: "What would be the practical •fleet il a considerable number of parents demand that time be made available for their children o attend a brief religious service lutside the school?" Another member wanted to •enow if "silent meditation" is permissible. All these queries indicate the scope of the uncertainty that pre- 'ails today. For, while New York ! t a t e has a law which specifi- is that "released time" may be used to permit students to go to eligious exercises outside the chool, and the Supreme Court of he United States has upheld such a practice, doubts have been raised now because of the comments n the latest ruling of the high court on June 17. The court emphasized then that he state government must be 'neutral" and that it could not sanction voluntary prayer in the school room and allow students who didn't want to participate to eave the room. The majority opinion mentioned that the father of a student in one of the cases before the court had decided against asking to have his children leave the school roorti temporarily "for several reasons, including his be- ief that the children's relationships with their teachers and classmates would be adversely affected." Justice Potter Stewart of the Supreme Court, who dissented, said he thought this was flimsy and didn't consider it convincing evidence of the effect of such a step. Nor is any light shed in a lengthy opinion by Justice Bren nan, who, though he "concurred 1 with the court's decision, express ed himself in a paragraph whicl should give school boards plenty of mental, if not religious, exercise. He said: Brennan's Thesis "We do not, however, in my view usurp the jurisdiction of school administrators by holding as we do today that morning devotional exercises in any form are constitutionally invalid. But there is no occasion now to go further and anticipate problems we cannot judge with the material now before us. Any attempt to impose rigid limits upon the mention of God or references to the Bible in the classroom would be fraught with dangers." Justice Brennan quoted with approval a previous decision of the high court which said the constitution does not "ban federal or state regulation of conduct whose reason or effect merely happens to coincide or harmonize with the tenets of some or all religions." He then added: "This rationale suggests that the use of the motto 'In God We Trust' on currency, on documents and public buildings anc the like may not offend the clause (in the Constitution re specting an establishment of religion). . .. For I suspect there would be intense opposition to the abandonment of that motto. The truth is that we have simply interwoven the motto so deeply in 1 to the fabric of our civil poll' cy that its present use may wel not present that type of involve ment which the first amendment prohibits." 1963.

But she who laughs last, laughs best. Actress Elizabeth Taylor has already collected $1,725,000 in sala- •y and probably will make $9,225,000 from the movie "Cleopatra." The total cost of "Cleopatra" o date exclusive of advertising, was $34,000,000 and the break-even point in gross earnings would be $62,000,000. Miss Taylor is to receive 10 per cent of the gross in addition to ler salary. Liz is the finest and most beautiful actress to come out of Hol- .ywood in the past 50 years. Originally a very happily married woman, she lost her husband in a plane accident. Miss Taylor was determined to get all she could out of life after her tragic loss of Mike Todd. I certainly do not approve of any woman being responsible for jreaking up two homes, but in -lollywood they would have been Droken up eventually.

The majority held that relief of high-school overcrowding through construction of a. junior high school building was primary, but two members held out for providing better and larger facilities for elementary classes. All agreed to seeking a PWA grant. Assessment of Alton township property for taxes decreased $173,023 from the previous $15,783,533. The real estate decline was $7,185; personal property $165,838. J. J. Lofy was named temporary chairman of the Shell Petroleum Corp. Recreation Association, organized after Louis W. Cross, YMCA director, discussed benefits of such an organization. The Trinity Lutheran congregation sold its former church structure and school building at 1123 Central Avenue to the Full Gospel congregation of the Free Pentecostal denomination. Funds for right-of-way on the firui section of the proposed Alton-East St. Louis superhighway, to be advanced by the Illinois State highway department, were to be repaid from the Madison County Motor Fuel Tax. Mr. and Mrs, Joseph F. Porter, former Al- tonians, and son, Clyde, were visiting here. Porter, head of the Kansas City Power & Light Co., and head of a large bank there, was retiring from business. He had brought to Alton its street car line. He purchased the electric plant and street-car lines while hometown money was being "spent elsewhere". George Anthony Zeller, 79, superintendent emeritus of the Peoria State Hospital, died in his apartment at the hospital. In 1901 he had opened the state hospital here, pioneering in revolutionary treatment of insane persons. Saying they were "not criminals, but sick," he ordered iron bars taken from the windows, and instituted the system of cottages for residency of patients. The J. J. Wuellner & Son firm was low bidder on repair and rebuilding of a portion of the Alton post office. The bid was $10,250. The first truck load of wheat to arrive at the Alton mills came from West Alton, Mo. June 28,1913 A group of Alton youths had been added to an engineering party which wa* surveying for » new pipe line between Wood River and Oklahoma oil fields in the interest of Standard Oil Go's, refinery. In the party were Bert Busse, Paul Zerwekh, Vernon Wade, James Hearne, and Robert Gaddis. The new pipe line was projected because the oil supply from eastern Illinois to the Wood River refinery was dwindling, and it had becomr necessary to ship in crude oil by tank cars. The projected pipe line was to cross the Mississippi between Alton and Wood River. The de facto board of Wood River highway commissioners had refused to pay bills In amount of $51 submitted by Fred Hendricks, highway commissioner elect. Due to the legal tangle over change in the township lines, the town board had never recognised Hendricks' election. Recently, in an effort to force a showdown, Hendricks had assumed office of his own volition and had begun some road work. Demands for ice, due to the hot weather, were now in excess of production in Alton area, and dealers were having additional supplies shipped in from St. Louis. Two carloads arrived during the day, Alton ice cream makers were turning out 1,000 gallons a day but were unable to fill all orders. An augmented 9-week program season opened at Piasa Chautauqua where almost all cottages now were occupied, and hotels expected a capacity business over the week-end. The county court house committee, meeting at Edwardsville, voted to retain N. Clifford Ricker, dean of architects at University of Illinois, as consultant architect to develop a general plan or design for the new county structure. Officers elected by Alton District Epworth League as it closed its 2-day convention here included the Rev. F. Marriot of Brighton as president, Mrs. B. C. Richardson of Alton and Miss Erma Bishop of Brighton as vice-presidents. Capt. Harry Davis, owner of the remodeled Str. Golden Fleece, originally the Liberty, sought backing of local business interests to put his boat in the Alton-Naples trade. He had put a new hull under the former Liberty, and claimed to have considerably increased the boat's speed. Victor Riesel Says Reuther Meets with Europe's Labor WASHINGTON — A group of men from two continents, who may someday have the political power to reshape policies of many governments, will meet quietly at an estate called Harpsund, six miles from Flen, ninety miles southwest of Stockholm, Sweden. That's the new summer residence of the Social Democratic Prime Minister, Tage Erlander. He has invited the group of friends, amongst whom is auto and aerospace union leader Walter Reuther, to meet with him liere on the morning of July 13. Mr. Reuther is one of two Americans asked by the Prime Minister .o this intercontinental private discussion. The other is Sen. Hubert Humphrey. He will fly in and out if he feels that he can eave the turbulent Senate in mid- July. Virtually all of the guests have one fascinating thing in common: They are men whose influence springs from the labor movement of their lands — influence which n some instances may make them the heads of state in a few years. Amongst these are Harold Wilson, British Labor Party leader, now attempting to topple the Macmillan government; and Erich Ol- enhauer, leader of the West German Social Democratic Party, which has as its base the powerful 'DGB" — the German labor federation which could well elect Mr. Ollenhauer or West Berlin's mayor Willy Brandt to the Chancel- lorship in the next election or so. Another guest will be Arne Geijer, president of the Confedera- ion of Swedish Trade Unions, who is expected to succeed his host as Swedish Prime Minister some day. Discuss Economic Progress Officially the word from t h e Prime Minister Is that the group will informally discuss full employment and the promotion of economic progress in all countries. Undoubtedly there will be more than a discussion of how to put jobless men and women to work. Each of these men is a realist and has long championed labor's political action. But the Social Democrats of Europe, especially Britain's Harold Wilson, respect Reuther as the symbol of labor's political action in the U.S. Reuther respects the others and in fact needs them as allies on labor's industrial front — which more and more is becoming international. By linking up with "metalworkers" unions abroad, Reuther hopes to "coordinate collective bargaining" across the world. There has not yet been talk of this resulting in international strikes against major auto companies. But not too long ago Reuther told an IMF Congress that, "Where we can exert practical trade-union solidarity to support the collective bargaining struggle of any given group, we will try to achieve that practical solidarity." Reuther did not explain what form this practical solidarity could take. But during the recent Today's Prayer 0 God of all wisdom, we offer a special prayer in behalf of all who are involved with the press, the radio and television as means of mass communication. Create in the hearts of readers, listeners, writers and performers the yearning for a greater knowledge than they now possess. Le there be a high regard for truth, that they shall be free indeed; in Christ's name. Amen. —Richard L. James, Jacksonville, Fla., minister, Riverside Avenue Christian Church. <© 1963 by the Division of Christian Education, National Council of the Churches of Christ In the U, S A.) French coal miners' strike his union contributed $25,000 to the coal diggers. Obviously this could be done for striking auto or steel workers the world over. Political Action, Too This international activity should be coupled with political action in each country, Reuther advised, so the unions could have impact on the social policies of their countries. Reuther's lead has been followed by his colleague James Carey, head of the International Union of Electrical Workers. In late May and in early June, Carey spent weeks in England conferring with the counterparts of his own organization. These were the British Electrical Trades Union and the Amalgamated Engineering Union. He was there with his Education and International Relations Director, Ben Segal. They, too, discussed mutual support and eventual exchange of technical experts. This trip came not long after Mr. Segal and Victor Reuther, the auto union's international relations director, participated in a Latin American Metalworkers Federation conference in Santos, Brazil. One section of the conference there was made up of union delegates from General Electric Co. plants in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Uruguay, Mexico, the U.S. and Canada. Almost unnoticed, this is the trend. International labor coordination is developing not only on the land, but on the sea, on the waterfront, in the oil industry and soon it will be apparent at the national convention of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, now that there la Telstar. And Mr. Reuther is In the forefront of the movement. Having prime ministers and presidents as allies won't hurt it at all. JO 1963. The Hall Syndicate. Inc.)
