PACil FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, JULY 9,1963 Editorial Need to Conserve Minds Much has been said about the hiph percentage of school dropout s in the gross. 1'erhaps the most tragic aspect of thi*. however, is underlined by an announcement of the Illinois Bo.ml of Higher Education that its survey slrows .M per cent of the state's top high school students never get to go on to college. The survey shows that institutions of higher education in Illinois are driving about 40 per cent of their freshmen from the top quarter of the high school gr.ulu.nmp classes. About 30 per cent come from the bottom half. Moreover, private schools draw f per cent more of their freshmen from the top half than do the public universities ,ind col- of the Board of Higher Education support s the principles upon which the Kdwardsville Campus of Southern Illinois University is being grounded: I'ut vottr colleges where the students are, The board urged greater care in locating additional higher educational institutions, pre- suiruhlv to place them where the demand arises; and tor more tuition free grants to deserving •-indents from low-income families. To these suggestions we can heartily agree. And we would point to the need for just such an institution as the Board of Higher Education to sec that these principles are carried out in spending the state's money for It is significant that one recommendation its college^ and universities. * i:- # » » Problem Beyond FEPC Standards? More clearly than any publici/ed case tliat has arisen yet, the Dallas, Texas post office promotion problem brings up the question we have insisted for sonic time must be faced squarely sooner or later by those seeking solution to our interracial problems: Must some system of granting concessions be formulated and carried out in order to provide Negroes with the same ratio of employment as Whites? Or must there be a difference in ratios? In the Dallas case one selection of a promotion to a supervisory job, picked under pressure from Washington to fill higher echelons, was ranked <4th in a civil service list. Under routine the postmaster was to have selected from among the top nine, but it contained no Negroes. I Ic made his selection with permission of the Postmaster General. Meanwhile, the answer in Texas was somewhat confused by the explanation of local officials that even scoring of examinations there might be prejudicial, and furthermore might be influenced by the brief seniority of Negroes in the service. Much has been said about the possibility that repression of and discrimination against Negroes has kept them, as a race, from developing as fast as the Caucasians, with their superior advantages in educational, residential], and employment facilities through the years. These general developments cannot help but place the Negro at a disadvantage, though thousands have managed to fight their way rhrough these disadvantages and make them- selves competent. Yet most fair employment practices regulations with which we are familiar insist that employment of Negroes and Whites must be placed on an impartial basis. This disparity is going to continue for vears causing friction and misunderstandings in our national civil rights program unless we get the answer. The answer can come in the next generation if we manage to maintain a high percentage of Negro students in our educational institutions at all levels. Dntrid Lawrence 'Rights' for Negroes Will j Hurt Trade THE LITTLE WOMAN WASHINGTON — An era of confusion, if not chaos, in the retail business in America so^ms to be on the way due to an unprecedented stretching of the law-making power such as is being proposed by Congress — without the ! support of a single Supreme Court! decision. For Congress is being urged by the Administration to yield, in ef \ feet, lo a stampede of street! "demonstrations" and pass a| law which creates virtually a federal dictatorship over the rela- ; tions of private business and its; customers. I The legislation recommended by! President Kennedy and his broth-; er. the Attorney General, is ostensibly directed at racial discrimination. They deem it constitution-, al, even though the Supreme , Court has never ruled that the Readers P Ot'll III federal government could expand' the interstate commerce clause to cover control over who mayi or may not be served in business. It might mean that, by using tlie executive-order device and relating it lo the racial problem, the federal government will also feel authorized to regulate who shall or shall not be given a job and "I've never seen your hair look so lovely!

It 1 have been quite some time j*roes have -had less opportunity to fit themselves for jobs in the past, then we must also accept the idea that a lower percentage ol them are acceptable for employment now. In that case, the only answer that makes sense, if we are to appreciably raise the percentage of well-employed Negroes close to that of Whites, is a certain amount of concession by employers. But even here we arc lost unless a sufficiently broad study can be made to determine the relative abilities on at least a community basis. An attempt to raise Negro employment level to that of the Whites under current FEPC standards is unrealistic, though there is much room for improvement under the current rules. could mean, loo, that federal an-1 verifying these figures.

Three Way Connection Anastas Mikoyan, first deputy premier of Uussia, has pointed out recently that there is 3 connection between Premier Khrushchev's offer a test ban treaty and his call for an East-West nonaggression pact. The nonaggression pact proposal could easily be a bit of bait to wean away from us some of our European allies—such, for instance, as Britain, with its government now in 3. weak position that could well induce preference for a nuclear agreement even if it had to be swallowed with the nonaggression treaty. It should be recognized, too, that the big show of strife between Russia and Red China could be part of the scenery, too. It certainly could increase heavily the pressure from sources which regard this break as legitimate and therefore one more reason for Russia to concede to the West in an effort to bolster her ties with us. If any advantage of any of these situations can be taken, it should be. But the West should be wary, indeed, of being placed in a position where it can be caught off guard as a result of accepting them at face value. It should guard against assuming the current affair with Peking is forcing Russia to concede to us. And we believe our government, at least, will approach the future talks with that idea in mind, even though Secretary of State Rusk has termed the forthcoming negotiations on a test ban treaty as a "confidence building" exercise. We would rather look upon it as a confidence testing exercise. Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Subsidies for Power Companies? WASHINGTON Important hearings will be held today regarding a series of federal handouts which most taxpayers don't know anything about — namely, and stating that all it wants from the government is free oil for five years; or a new textile mill asking for free cotton from the government for five years. These proposed subsidies should iraclors. At a time when subsidies to private power com-j inspire alert congressmen on the p.-mies and others to build nuclear j j 0 i n t Atomic Committee to ask jibe following questions: there is in-! i. why should certain industries creasing public concern over con- |gG ( subsidies while others don't? s 1 airline nuclear power plants |j s jt chiefly because they hire ni'Hr big city populations, three j better lobbyists who give more pioups are asking for $-12,000,000 ( , oc ktail parties and exert more if the taxpayers' money to build influence? vhether Congress digs into any of hese questions.

These are the highest type of labor, faithful to the railroad industry, and the rail executives are not anxious to fire Ihcm. nuclear plants near Los Angeles, San Diego, and in Connecticut.

THE AUDIT BUKUAU OF CIRCULATION Local Adv ertUlng matlon ...... Rats* and Contract Information on application at the Telegraph business office, ill East Broadway, Alton, 111. National Advertising Representatives; The Branham Company, New York, Chicago, Detroit and St. Louis, able wage or salary scales for particular classifications of jobs. While labor unions at present fix hours and wages, they do so by a joint contract with the employer, who has the right — without penalty of law — to refrain from entering into any contract he does not like. He may choose union or non-union employes, but it is his decision. With the racial problem as its leverage, federal control of employment practices becomes a powerful instrument of national politics. Only On Pretext If the proposed law on "public accommodations," moreover, i s held valid by the Supreme Court, there is no end to the powers that could be exercised on the mere pretext that it "affects" interstate commerce. The constitution, of course, speaks only of the power of Congress to "regulate" interstate commerce — not the behavior of persons or their rights to select their own customers. If it be conceded that all men are created equal and are presumably to be given equal opportunity to earn equal compensation when they do the same work, then a standardized system analogous to that which prevails under communism can be as logically applied by the government here by merely invoking the doctrine of "equal pay for equal work." The private-enterprise system would thereupon be materially changed. A political administration then becomes the judge of efficiency. Meantime, what is beginning to bother many small business people, especially restaurant owners, is that the moment they open their doors to all kinds of cutomers, they begin to lose patronage. They know that, if they allowed white persons, for instance, in dirty clothing and of disheveled appearance to frequent their restaurants, other customers would stay away. Yet, if a Negro dressed in the same way should be refused a seat in the restaurant among white customers, t h e owner could be threatened with federal punishment. Even if the owner argued that he was n o t j discriminating on the basis of building soon to be put into usej will cost an estimated $131,500,000. A Republican member from Kentucky predicted it would cost $135 million before it was finished. The congressmen voted what impossible it is to save' the tax payers money. LUCY E. HAGAN 216 S. 13th St. Wood River By Their Own Devices Trek toward Moscow? The decision of the Supreme amounted to a blank check for | Court against the Lord's Prayer this new building. This new congressional palace will boast 165 three-room congressional suites, 24 committee rooms, five dining rooms, and a cafeteria seating 700, with all new furniture costing $3'/2 million, and parking space for 1,600 cars. But that's not all. It will have a beautiful new swimming pool, and HJI underground garage costing $8 million. If my memory serves me correctly, this underground garage came up for discussion more than a year ago. It was then adjudged too expensive. This was to please the constituents who wrote their Congressmen objecting to it. Then they simply voted a blank check for expenses and, lo, we have the garage. Do you realize what this would be, broken down in figures? With a garage costing million and parking 1,600 cars it would cost approximately $417 dollars per month to park one car. And of course there is the maintenance and help to be considered. Why not lavish some of this money on hospitals and orphanages. Not three miles from the land Bible reading in the public schpols is exactly what the Communists wanted. It's only isci-called) Atheists and irreligious people that are really opposed to the Lord's Prayer and Bible reading in the schools. We need more of Christianity in the schools, Hot less. One of the objectors in Pennsylvania stated that he was reading the Koran (the Mohammedan religious book) while the Lord's Prayer and Bible verses were being read. So it would seem that the prayer and Bible verses should not have hurt him too bad. It seems to me that we need more of Christianity in both the homes and the schools, And it seems so sad that the teachings of the Lord that would bring peace to the world are being ignored by the great majority of the world's leaders who are trying to bring peace by their own devices, which will and always have failed. L. MOSES, Jerseyville. CROSSWORD By Eugene Sbeffer The rail chiefs have been ex- race but because of the personal tremely patient in meeting every government proposal for postponement and adjustment of the dispute, have agreed to accept the recommendation of the Rifkin panel to pay four years salary to every discharged older fireman and six months to every fireman with the railroad twelve months. This will cost the railroads millions. Real fact is that, the railroads, operating without subsidies, have been caught in the competitive squeeze by other industries which hire very successful lobbies and are able to get very remunerative! subsidies. The two chief competitors are the airlines, which got their start from subsidies; and the trucking industry, which operates entirely 49 appearance of some of bis customers, he cannot be sure the Supreme Court will not say this is merely an excuse and that he was motivated by "local customs." From the standpoint of those who want to see individual rights preserved — which means t h e right of every private business to use its own judgment, even if it be discriminatory — the choice ahead may be between an acceptance of federal authority or the expense and worry'of politically generated lawsuits.

Report JFK Dangles Tempting Trade WASHINGTON President Kennedy is dangling tempting trade bait before Premier Khrushchev in an effort to "arrange tor a period of relative tranquility be- Lween Russia and the U.S." "Increased trade and economic contacts," 1 are being offered t h e Soviet ruler in exchange for an easing of the cold war and an agreement to ban nuclear weapons tests in the atmosphere and underwater. This new extraordinary diploma tic maneuvers was broached in one of the President's increasingly frequent letters to Khrushchev. The correspondence between :hem is one of the most unique, little-known and far-reaching aspects of the President's foreign solicy. This profoundly important new type of summitry, first revealed by this column last February, now nvolves an exchange of over 30 etters all dealing with U.S.A.-Soviet relations. In the trade proffer the President pointed out that the easing of tensions could clear the way for lim to authorize the sale of many )roducts now barred fom sale to lussia. While no specific items were cited by the President, he has sig- lificantly empowered Agriculture Secretary Orville Freeman to discuss the sale of large quantities of surplus farm commodities should Khrushchev indicate interest in he President's plan. Freeman is leaving this week 'or a month's tour of the Soviet and satellite countries. Opening the Gate To demonstrate that he is serious about increasing trade with Russia, the President has directed the Commerce Department to speed up the issuance of export icenses to shippers with orders from the Reds. There has been no public an- nouncement of this action. In one controversial case, the White-House ordered approval of a license for the export of 25,000 tons of highly processed petroleum coke. This exceptionally critical material, of utmost importance in atomic reactors, was the first shipged to Russia since the embargo on strategic goods was, imposed at the outbreak of the Korean war. The new relaxed trade policy of the President is clearly spelled out in a backstage memorandum titled "Economic Policy Toward Russia and the Communist Bloc." Circulated among the top administration policy - makers, it states: "U.S. economic policy toward Russia and the Soviet bloc in Europe should be a function of the general policy to attract those countries into a closer association with a strong free-world community. The U.S. should, so far.as is practicable, encourage expanded economic trade and contacts between the U.S. and Russia, and constructive Russian-Soviet bloc participation in international economic organizations," Ironically, the President's trade Today's Prayer Heavenly Father, help us to realize that if we face adversities bravely, with confidence in Thee and with awareness of Thine eternal purposes, we shall ultimately triumph and win the battle of life. We seek Thy guidance in order that we may use both successes and failures for our spiritual development. We pray in Jesus' name and for His sake. Amen. —Lyndon B.

S, A.) lure to the Kremlin comes at a time when the Common Market Is considering momentous overtures of its own to Moscow and the Soviet bloc. During the President's European trip, he learned that the six Common Market members, with West Germany taking the lead, are preparing to cut tariffs on a number of imports from the Iron Curtain. West German businessmen are pnrticulat'Jy active in the move. Members of the President's party were told the aim is to boost So- vit bloc trade from $2.5 billion a year to over $4 billion by the end of 1964. Looking Forward In addition to endeavoring to negotiate an informal detente with .Russia, the President's closely-guarded exchange of letters with Khrushchev is designed to lay the_ground for a summit meeting in the fall. Other objectives, as listed in a top-level policy paper are to (1) "Convey to Moscow a clearer undersanding of our intentions. . .so as to avoid or minimize future crises promoted or exploited by the Soviet Union; (2) work out over the longer run tacit undersandings with the Soviet as to the ground rules governing our competition throughout the world; and (3) elose out any crises as quickly as possible. . ." . , .Secretary Dean Rusk will be a surprise witness for President Kennedy's civil rights program. He will testify before the Senate Commerce Committee on the "impact racial difficulties arc having on U,S. foreign policy abroad."
