'Mayor Daley was booed off the platform lit an attempt to speak, though he had participated in leading the parade that preceded 1 the rally. Daley had to abandon his •ttempt. Me attributed the discourtesy to ^Republicans. ,i'?> United States Senator Paul Douglas, however, got a cordial greeting from the group. - No matter what the explanation, the pos- fiblity that the crowd was "taken over" by another group and turned to the purposes of opponents of the Chicago mayor should give our Organized Negro protest march promoters cause for thought. ' If this rally was taken over by outsiders ind turned to their purposes—even though only against the Chicago mayor—it should be accepted as warning that other such rallies could meet a similar fate. Washington correspondents recently nave noted that the Communist apparatus fof this country has held a national meeting to discuss work among youth. One of the things upon which they cast a calculating *y* was the possibility of working their way into the current national .Negro indignation demonstrations, The anti-discrimination groups have been making big plans for a giant demonstration in Washington, if civil rights legislation doesn't move to suit them. We believe the filibuster tactics so long successful against civil rights may well meet their logical counteraction in such demonstrations. But we believe the leaders and planners of such demonstrations now must accept the responsibility of undertaking a measure which enemies of our country can turn to their own use. This is not to say, it should be added, that our country's enemies have not been turning Congress" deficiencies in this discrimination area to their own purposes for some time. Yet a large mob of thousands gathered in Washington on a highly emotional errand presents great possibilities, indeed. Question to Be Tested An old personal feud has flared again — that between the high command of the Alton Citizens for Better Government and their one-time candidate for mayor, now mayor P. W. Day without benefit of ACBG backing. This feud has been one of the sad chapters in Alton governmental history. The latest chapter'is the ACBG's challenge to the cjty council over its authority to vote Mayor Day some compensatory income as liquor commissioner in view of the fact that his salary as mayor cannot be changed in mid-term. The statutes, of course, bar a mayor's lalary change in mid-term, under ordinary circumstances. We think justly so. From' a practical viewpoint, however we think the voters of Alton virtually approved an adequate salary for the Mayor Day when .they decided — by ' a narrow margin, it's true — to throw out council-manager form of .government. , When Mayor Day was re-elected, he assumed council-manager government would remain, and that the manager would handle the major part of the administrative duties. Even then, however, he spoke up in favor of having his considerable expenses covered. We think some way should be found or devised that will make it possible for the mayor, now required to take over administrative work once done by a city manager, to be paid adequately for the services he performs. The recent years have been difficult ones for the mayor. Certainly the work he must do now is no easier than it was when he first took office. These years and experiences have a way of piling up on a man. At the same time .we have this sentimental and probably moral feeling on the issue, we realize that there is a legal question. The question, has been raised regarding a contest to test the action in court so the position of the city can be determined. This, too, could be a valuable contribution to the cause of good government from the ACBG, which has made many valuable contributions already. GOP Candidates Contrast Charles Percy's announcement of candi- da'cy foir' the -Republican governor nomination assures Illinoisans of two contrasting candidates in next spring's primary. ; Still withholding", his fire, Charles Carpentier, secretary of state, is generally accepted as a second sure candidate for the nomination, already. . Mr. Percy, basically an industrial type executive, as president of the fast-expanding Bell & Howell firm, was a business advisor for President Eisenhower and served as chairman for the national Republican platform committee in 1960. His .entry into the political arena has been relatively recent. By contrast his prospective opponent, Mr. Carpentier, has been high in Illinois politics for some years, and has 'raised the office of secretary of state to commendable efficiency. He virtually fathered the state drivers license system, and has done an effective job of nursing it to a healthy adulthood. In voting on the two, state Republicans can choose' whether they want to send into the 1964 battle a relatively fresh political figure, comparatively young (they did well with Gov. William Stratton as a young man), and -with relatively little political experience; or a veteran well versed in not only political but governmental operations; one who already has spent years in building up a large and solid nucleus of support in the state. Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Moscow-Peking Split Is Deep WASHINGTON — Delegates of the two most powerful Communist countries in the world today will try to forget that the Chinese have been calling Khrushchev "a bald-headed ass" and that the Russians have been jamming Chinese broadcasts, have deported five members of the Chinese embassy from -Moscow, closed all Soviet consulates in China, and permitted the breaking of Chinese Embassy plate glass in Moscow much in the mannej- that the windows of the American Embassy have sometimes been shattered. They will meet in an atmosphere harder to reconcile t h a n that between 1 Bobby Kennedy and Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina on Civil Rights. It's ^iso a long way from that remark by Nikita Khrushchev at an embassy party in Moscow last February; "When we bury the West the Chjnese will throw on the last shovelful of dirt." Bitter as tliese outw.ard signs of disagreement may be, however, there are two backstage factors which make the in.ter-family Cpm- jnunJst feud even more difficult to reconcile. They are: J — Chinese demands that Khrushchev get out as leader of the European Communist world. g — Russian arms supplied to Chinese insurrectionists in Sinki- ang province; plus an offer of Nu clear weapons to India. Personal Affront to K These run much deeper than any name-calling between Chinese «»4 RWItfan leaders. The politicians have now the give-and-take of cians. They can sit other in the lrit 8^ P«sWent Kennedy jgwlrfts toward Sen. Dick Kupejl, ^e Georgia Segregatipn- WWJ. JUfc With Kennedy m Ms to California, ev< DM bitterly however, runs much deeper. It would be equivalent to a demand by Sen. Russell that Kennedy be impeached. And Khrushchev, reacting to it with characteristic vigor, has confided to satellite leaders that unless the Chinese repent, the Chinese-Soviet peace parley is doomed before it starts. The supplying of Soviet arms to anti-Chinese along the vast unprotected Chinese border is the equivalent of Chiang Kai-Shek's attempts to stir up revolution on the Chinese mainland. It makes Red Chinese blood boil. , ; The outside world doesn't know it, but the Russians have also offered atomic artillery to India, presumably hoping this will scare Chinese leaders. So far, it hasn't.. The most festering sore of all is the revolt against the Chinese government along the semi-isolated northwest border. I traveled along this border for a thousand miles or so in the days following World War I. It's a no- man's land of arid steppes and undulating prairies across which Mongol and Ghirgiz tribes drive will 49 J» ttst flu 0itaew have Khrushchev's dismiss- Alton Evening Telegraph Published Dally by Alton Telegraph Printing Company P.

In that area, of course, it seldom rains and the grass is seldom green. Restless Tribesmen S i n k i a n g province, formerly called Chinese Turkestan, is inhabited about 70 per by Ghirgiz Uzbeks, and Tartars, who have been spasmodically restless against the Red Chinese ever since 1960. The first rebellion, in June I960, was somewhat similar to the Easl Berlin riots in the same month K broke out in Inins and Tach- eng, two towns close to the Soviet border where the Kazakhs and Tartars on the Chinese side could see how much better fee were the Kazakhs and Tartars on the Soviet side. During this uprising they sent delegations to the Soviet consu late demanding arms. But Soviet- Chinese relations were better then and the Soviet consul gave no help, He advised compliance to Chinese authorities. This simmering revolt later turned into open insurrection, with bridges blown up, military roads blocked, oil production disrupted, and heavy fighting in some areas along the Soviet-Chinese border. Streams of refugees crossed into Soviet territory and were given asylum, fed, well treated, and set up in refugee camps. Friction for Three Years Though unknown to the outside world, this friction along t h e northwest border has continued off and on for almost three years. At one time In the late summer of 1960, Moscow sent a strong note of protest that the Chinese had crossed the border and set up military installations on t h e Russian side. Later that year, during the 21st Communist Party Congress in Moscow, the Rus ans secretly accused the Chinese of "armed aggression." <O 1«63, Bell Syndicate, Inc.) David Lawrence Reds Thinks There Was a Cuban *Dea WASHINGTON -<• The Amet* can people don't always read the fine prittt in the contracts that their chosen representatives make with foreign governments. Then, a few months later, the clarify* irtg truth sometimes emerges. Despite th<» denials last Octobef that any "deal" was made by President Kennedy with the Soviet Union to secure the withdraw al of Soviet missiles from Cubn, It turns out that the Moscow gov gernment at least construes it thai way now and announces that. It intends to hold the American ernnient to its promises -> allegedly a recognition of the communist-bloc countries, including East Germany, as a military alliance confronting NATO. The chain of events has all the earmarks of a carefully-planned maneuver In diplomacy. First Premier Khrushchev made a speech at East Berlin on Tuesday of this week in which he said that a test-ban agreement by it self couldn't lessen -the danger of a thermonuclear war, and then added: "That is why the Soviet government believes that already, at the conclusion of a test-ban agreement, it Is necessary to take also another big step toward easing International tension and strengthening confidence between states to sign a nonaggression pact between the two main military groups 'of states — the NATO countries and the Warsaw Treaty states. . . . "A test-ban agreement, combined with the simultaneous sign Ing of a nonaggression pact between the two groups of states will create a fresh international climate more favorable for a solution of major problems of our time, Including disarmament." Puzzled America officials were at first said to be "puzzled" by this linking of the two things — the test- ban treaty and the pact with the communist-bloc countries, including the formal recognition thereby of the puppet regime of East Germany. But it wasn't until First Deputy Premier Anastas Mikoyan made a statement during a Fourth of July reception at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow that the Russian game was disclosed. He said that all conditions for the signing of a partial nuclear-test Dan _ that is, one not covering underground tests but prohibiting other tests and bypassing inspections — have been met and that it is now up to the West. News dispatches from Moscow stressed that Mr. Khrushchev had demanded a "simultaneous" signing of the two agreements, and Deputy Premier Mikoyan; pointed out that Mr. Kennedy had, in effect, agreed to this concept in a letter which the President wrote to the Soviet premier last October during the Cuban missile cri sis. It read as follows: "I would like to say again that the United States is very much interested in reducing tensions and halting the arms race; and if your letter signifies that you are prepared to discuss a detente affect- Ing NATO and the Warsaw pact, we are quite prepared to consider with out allies any useful proposals." The foregoing was sent by the President on Oct. 27, 1962, and the very next day Mr. Khrushchev announced that he would withdraw Soviet missiles and troops from Cuba. Taken literally, Mr. Kennedy's note agreed only to "consider" any useful proposals. He spoke ol a "detente," which the diction- airies of diplomacy define, not as meaning any formal agreement, but "a relaxing, as of strained relations between nations." Wants Same Thing Mr. Khrushchev says he wants the same thing, but American officials called the ambassadors of Britain, France and West Ber- many to the State Department in Washington on Wednesday even ing to tell them that the United States does not intend to sign a test-ban agreement at the price of recognizing the Warsaw pact. It could be, of course, that Mr. Khrushchev is stating his highest price now — just before the big conference between East and West on the subject of a test ban opens on July 15 in Moscow and that he will be willing to accept some variation of the whole plan later on. But It is evident that he construes Mr. Kennedy's letter of Oct. 27, 1962, as a concession and that, if the "deal" isn't lived 1 up to as he wants it a recognition of the Soviet conquest of the countries of Eastern Europe — then pehaps there will be a slowing down; jf not an abandonment, of the promised withdrawal of the lo'.OOO or Soviet troops still stationed in Cuba. : A11 this could mean a choice between two ey ils . -r the contin • ued defiance of the Monroe Doctrine, or American acceptance of an unreliable agreement to ban nuclear tests, together with for ma) Americajn approval o{ the Soviet occupation of Hungary and the other communist-bloc countries thjt once wer§ (O 18W, N.Y.

Readers Forum Defense of the Home I was amazed to read a news Item, "Man Convicted for Defending Parents' Home," In the Telegraph June 27 concerning the conviction of a man for shooting a youth running from a ransacked house at Wheaton. The state's attorney said that under the Illinois Criminal Code there is no unrestricted right to defend property, and the use of a gun is forbidden except to prevent a .forcible felony. The defense attorney argued that such a law is one that burglars welcome. Is there such a law now? Many of us have for years believed the "man's house is his castle" idea, and that we could defend our houses and family, if ever required, with a suitable weapon regardless of the effect on a housebreaker or burglar. It may be well to inform us all publically if the long existant right to defend our homes, or some neighbor's if asked to do so, has been nullified or revised by statute, and when > and why such * * TFe're In-Period Let's face the facts — be honest with ourselves. In 1933 we passed the Neutrality Act. Later on in the 30s we violated that act :>>• sending supplies—material and military to Europe. History records show we became involved in that war. We now vow to risk the United States in the defense of Europe. Whether we like, it or not, we.are no longer isolationists. W o r 1 d War II settled that. We are in a new kind of world order. Some are. alarmed by the spirit of neutralism that seems to prevail in western Europe and in some other lands. This spirit of neutralism has been hit as a threat to western Europe. We hear that there is a division in the Kremlin, that there is a feeling in many parts of Europe that Communism is no longer a, menace was done. In Alton our very efficient police department must serve an enormous area and at a ratio o, about 1,000-persons-to-l policeman so they cannot in many cases get to ah active spot quickly enough to make a prime defense. In fact they should not be expected to have such capability; their prompt follow-in, of course, would be most welcome. The answer to this question of what are the limits of our home defense rights translates into corresponding action if a case shoulc occur from squawking for help like a chicken or letting go with something more directly effective in prime defense. Maybe, I hope, the news item was misinterpreted, as such cannot portray the complete detail of such a case. I hope that someone well-acquainted with such circumstances will take the trouble to enlighten many of us on this subject. R.

Victor Riesel Says Labor Active in Freedom Fight One of those who knows from personal experience that the first objective of the Communist apparatus anywhere is the labor movement is AFL- CIO President George Meany. Hard-hitting, blunt and highly knowledgeable on the Communists' tactics and philosophy he has deservedly earned the enmity of the world's Communist government leaders because he has fought them .on every continent, I '', asked him what he believed was the most exciting development in Latin America. Here is his answer, so characteristically outspoken: By GEORGE MEANY President, AFL-CIO WASHINGTON — The one most persuasive reason why I agreed to be a guest columnist for Victor Riesel this year is the area he is visiting on his annual. overseas trip. Latin America occupies more than half the Western Hemisphere. The southern tip of Texas barely dips below the 26th nd$h- ern parallel; from there to t'tf e Equator, and the whole stretch from the Equator to land's end at Tierra del Fuego, is Latin terri- :ory. Latin America is not only vast n size but, because of its loca- ion if for no other reason, obviously of vast importance to the United States. Yet, until comparatively recent years, our country made no real effort to make friends of our southern neighbors on a basis of equality and mutual respect. It would take the space of many columns to review that unhappy story. Rather than do that — or even to recite the better record of the labor movement — let us look at the more promising pre- sent. Alliance For Progress Through the Alliance for Progress program the United States is at last making a comprehensive effort to create the economic, social and political conditions that will make stable, democratic societies possible in Latin America. The program ;Js far ,from faultless, but it deserves the interest and support of us all. There is another : Latin Ameri-. can program under way as well —one that is in some ways more dramatic. It is being conducted by the American Institute lor Free Labor Development, now slightly more than a year old. In the narrow sense the Institute is a school. The students are young, freedom-loving Latin American trade unionists, carefully chosen by their own labor organizations in consultation with the Inter-American representatives of the AFL-CIO. They are Today's Prayer Our Father, help us to realize the wonderful scope of the- human beings whom Thou has created —perhaps 3,000,000. individuals in 120 countries and speaking 3,000 dialects — all separate thoughts of Thine and all dear to Thee! Give us a sense of fellowship with them. May we sympathize with the needy not only across the seas but also on the other side of the tracks in, our own cities and towns. Give us the spirt and wisdom of Christ as we try'to solve problems both International and local, we ask in the name of the Lord Jesus. Amen. —James Ross McCain, Decatqr, Ga., president-emeritus, Agnes Scott College. (® 1963 by the Division of Christian Education, National Council of the Churches of Christ In the U. S, A,) brought to Washington, 35 or 40 at a time, for a three-month course that embraces both union techniques and the successful practice of democracy. Those who graduate are then supported for nine additional months,: back- in their own countries, to assure them of a chance. to begin putting what they have learned to good use. Not Brainwashing This is not a brainwashing operation,' ' intended to dictate a course of action. Each applicant for admission must first have devised a project he hopes to carry out. Thus the Institute's role is to assist these young Latin Americans to do more effectively what they had already 'decided should be done. . Three classes have been graduated thus far, and a fourth is now under way. But the real story is not what goes on in Washington. The real story is what your touring columnis^will discover on the Latin American scene, both on the mainland and in the Caribbean islands. As President Kennedy told the first graduating class, at a ceremony, in the Rose Garden of the White House: "Because the labor movement in this country has looked beyond its immediate .responsibilities to itsi'members and to Its responsibilities to,, society *as a whole, I think it has fulfilled a great role in .our count'ry. I hope that you will fill the Same role." I hope Victor'Riesel will search out the evidence;, and if he does, I know what he will'find. He will fuid some ''120 young men, the first three classes graduated by the Institute/creating and strengthemng free, democratic unions where they had never before existed.
