rotm ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, 1963 Editorial Ait Editor Who Stayed 'Ahead' Every editor wotth the pi-inter's ink he els must be "ahead" of his community. Tfait means he opens himself to a lot of opposition—-some fait, some hitting far below the belt, and With the most reprehensible of guerrilla tactics. One of the rtiost dangerous of these guerrilla tactics is the nationwide attempt by the "hate" groups to undermine faith of readers In the press, by means both blunt arid subtle. These developments are not very dra- rtiatic, They are difficult for the public to detect. The public, then, needs to be reminded occasionally by more recognizable presentations the sacrifice and the courage that go into maintaining the American press at its always high, and ever-rising level of devotion to informing the citizens who arc its readers. Significantly enough, two institutions of higher education in the country have focused attention on the personal heroism of the many editors across the land who have made easily recognizable sacrifices. Both develop this dramatization with the spotlight on the Rev. Elijah P. Lovejoy, whom mobs assassinated in Alton. Nov. 7, 1837 because he fought personally and journalistically in the cause of freedom for all men, as well as for the press. Albion College at Albion, Maine, Lovejoy's own school, undertook this program some years back. Southern Illinois University and the International Conference of Weekly Newspaper Editors which it sponsors have more recently joined in bringing the Lovejoy story and symbolism up to date. The SItJ-lCNE selection of a Midlothian, Texas editor, W. Penn Jones, Jr., for its 1963 award^—niade Sunday evening at Pare Mar- qttette Lodge—Was in conformity with the usual high order of judgment made by these organizations. It brought to public attention once again what some members of the press do suffer, and most others are ready to suffer in order that the United States may retain its freedom through uninhibited exchange of truthful information. That Mr. Jones' long fight against a board of education has not yet accomplished what it set out to do is beside the point. He was willing to make the sacrifice of his safety and his personal welfare in order to provide the leadership he felt his community needed. This is typical of many editors who see a cause and set out to fight for it. Their failures often are merely symptoms of the enormity of the obstacles they select to overcome. This has always been the case in the world's history. Even the cause to which Lovejoy gave his loyalty and his life took nearly a quarter century to bloom into the Emancipation Proclamation and Constitutional Amendments freeing the slaves. And the race for which he sought this freedom is still fighting for recognition of its equality. Where Jobs Are Law Foulup Millions of jobs to reduce unemployment among Negroes were called for by Chairman Walter W. Heller of the President's Council of Economic Advisors as a remedy for racial employment unbalance. To create these millions of jobs Mr. Heller urged adoption by Congress of the President's proposal for a tax cut. At least one school of economists has held the tax cut will leave wage earners with more money to spend with resultant more buying and more employment. We might suggest an additional source of relief. One of the most criticized spots in the nation's economy in the field of discrimination is the building industry. But unions insist there are now no openings for Negroes on the massive scale necessary. We believe the day the building trades reduce their scales to a level where the ordinary householder can abandon do-it-yourself maintenance and improvement, ' employment in this field will pick up on just this massive scale. Read These A series of special articles describing in detail the accomplishments of the Illinois General Assembly was started in Saturday's Telegraph with one on the revised judicial system. The just-adjourned legislature, despite its failing in some respects, did accomplish one of the biggest tasks of any in recent years — and did it ahead of schedule. Its actions are important for Illinoisans to understand. With this in mind, the Telegraph For some years the Telegraph has attempted through these columns to encourage quicker settlement of taxes from the county treasurer's office with local governmental units. We believed it would save the local units considerable in interest money, in addition to representing merely the just way to carry on this business. We believe the taxpayer, himself, would be more interested in paying of taxes if he knew the money wasn't going to lie idle, tangled up in red tape. We are happy, then, to note that County Treasurer George Musso has completed installation of equipment that will make possible monthly settlements with local governmental units. A discouragingly small number of the local units indicated their desire for the more frequent and prompt settlements—for reasons best known to them. However, we feel that those desiring them will be able to more than compensate. Perhaps the others will catch on. And realization by City Treasurer M. O. Elliott that fiscal complications make small payments of little use for him because of the manifold split of taxes here should encourage a legislative study of this foolish fouling up of local governmental business by existing tax handling red tape. ***** and the Associated Press are joining forces to bring to our readers this examination of its accomplishments. We hope they will be thoroughly read and 'well analyzed so that our readers will be informed of the latest developments in the framework of our state governmental structure. The Allen-Scott Report Soviet Leads U. S. in Nuclear Arms WASHINGTON — A new Soviet er ani nightmare in cataclysmic weap- SS-8. ons hangs like a fearsome cloud over the East-West nuclear test ban talks getting underway in Moscow. The Russians have successfully tested the SS-8, a third generation intercontinental ballistic missile that is far more powerful and accurate than the giant ICBMs they already have. This foreboding development means that Soviet rocket scientists have perfected an 1CBM "carrier" for their steadily increasing stockpile of 50 to 100- megaton "super" H-bombs. One megaton is the equivalent of 1 million tons of TNT. General Curtis LeMay disclosed this startling information to the Senate Armed Services Preparedness Subcommittee in expressing his frank opposition to the U.S. entering into an unpoliced nuclear test ban agreement with Russia. The outspoken Air Chief of Staff warned the senators that the Soviet is now substantially ahead of the U.S. in the development and testing of giant nuclear weapons and their "carriers," and Uiat a treaty banning tests of them in the atmosphere would definitely continue the Reds in their sinister lead. General LeMay asserted that Air Force Intelligence is now firmly convinced the Russians are giving the development of giant ICBA "c a r r 1 e r s" top priority. This belief Is strongly supported by data based on recent Soviet missile tests in the Pacific, which Air Force experts Jeel quite certain completed the development of the deadly SS-8. At a closed-door session with the game Senate committee, Central Intelligence Director John Mo Cone agreed with LeMay's grim report on the Soviet's superiority iii'super nuclear weapons. However, while conceding that the Russians have the "capabil ty" of delivering "super bombs,' expressed the opinion Soviet priority Is'now center qn Jjie pi'o4u,<?Uon of. a ne thftt Is considerably light er and more mobile than the huge to this day no senator on either New Soviet Missile As described by the CIA chiefs this latest Soviet missile is similar to our Minuteman, that has a range of 5,000 miles and is just becoming operational. The Russian version of the missile is launched from pads that are cheaper to construct and perhaps capable of being better camouflaged than other Soviet ICBMs. The missile is deemed to have full inertial guidance, instead of he combination of radio and built- n guidance of earlier models. In the judgment of CIA, this new Red missile is an exception- illy satisfactory weapon for a na- ion whose military theorists insist above all on the crucial importance of "pre-emption" — the necessity to strike first in the employment of nuclear arms. These and other still-classified details of the Soviet's stupendous uiclear-missile capabilities will je made public by Senator John Stennis, D-Miss., chairman when and if a nuclear test ban treaty s submitted to the Senate for rat- fication.

CO 1903, The Hall Syndicate, Inc.) tyrtbief Lntvrcttcc Sees Little Hope for a Nuclear Ban WASHINGTON - Are the pre- ent talks at Moscow on a ttu- lear-test ban just the prelude to Jong series of negotiations that .rill eventually prove as fruitless o prevent World War 111 as the ame kind of parleys were before ach of the last two big wars? For the realistic fact Is that led China Is capable of provok- ng a world conflict. The Peking overnment Is about to test its rst atomic bomb. Quantity pro- uctlon may be years away, but t takes only a few bombs to In- midate neighboring countries in n attempt to acquire more ter- itory. China has a number of So- let-tralned scientists of her own, nd a test of the first bomb Is ex- jected In a few months. So the actics of terror can begin now. Red China, in breaking away rom Russia, may, of course, lose some economic and military sup- xjrt, but this doesn't prevent her rom threatening countries in southeast Asia and even starting n attack on Formosa or Korea f it suits her purpose. The Peking leaders are bent in a nationalist course and on he building of an empire of their iwn to dominate Asia. They feel hat nuclear weapons are essenti- 1 to the satisfaction of their na- ional ambitions. A nuclear-test greement in Moscow that doesn't nclude a means of stopping fur- her aggression by Red China is lot going to prevent a war in isia, wliich could eventually in- olve Japan as well as the United Itates and lead to a world war. Can't Solve Problem Negotiations at a "high level" uch as are going on in Moscow his week, or even "summit" alks which are being hinted at Iready, cannot solve the prob- em. Mere conversation at high evels has proved ineffective in reventing the last two world /ars. World War I, for instance, was receded by a series of confer- nces. Even the United States, nown then as an "isolationist" ountry, took a hand in attempt- ng to prevent a big war. Presi- ent Wilson tried hard to avert it, nd in May 1914 sent his personal ambassador, Col. E. M. House, n a trip to Europe that lasted everal weeks. ,The latter had mg private talks with Emperor Villiam of Germany and S i r Edward Grey, the foreign minister f Great Britain. But there was rocrasiination on both sides, and :ie informal mediation got no/here. Mr. House revealed in his nemoirs many years later what e had written to the American mbassador at London, Walter Hines Page, just after the war roke out in August 1914: "It is all a bad business, and ust think how near we came to making such a catastrophe impos- ible! If England had moved a ttle faster and had let me go ack to Germany, the thing, per- aps, could have been done." But Ambassador Page wrote in eply: "No, no, no — no power on artli could have prevented it. 'he German militarism, which is ne crime of the last 50 years, ias been working for this for 25 ears. It is the logical result ol heir spirit and enterprise anc doctrine. It had to come. But, of ,'ourse they chose the wrong time and the wrong issue. Militarism las no judgment. Don't let your conscience be worried. You die all that any mortal man could do But nobody could have done any thing effective. We've got to see to it that this system doesn' row up again — that's all." Scarcely had these memoirs jeen published when the events leading to the outtn-eak of World War II, based on almost identica factors, were the subject of t h e same kind of frantic efforts by negotiation and even appeasement at such conferences as those before and after Munich ii 1938. But World War II came ii THE LITTLE WOMAN 1939 just 25 years after the first one. Were in the Dark What does all this portend with reference to a possible World Wa 111? In both periods prior to tin two major wars, peoples in al countries were in the dark abou what was happening. There i is somewhat more being publish ed today about the diplomat^ conversations that are going on but there's a lot being suppressed too. Fundamentally, what wa wrong before 1914 and before 193 is wrong today. The peoples of tlv world — the prospective victim —are unable to bring their in fluence to bear on their govern ments. Secrecy of negotiation ha some merit, but not at the ex ponse of essential facts that nee 1 to be stated and re-stated pub licly. Thus, for instance, the problem today is not nudear-test agreements or even a non-aggressio treaty with the Communist bio in Eastern Europe, through the Warsaw Pact, as Khrushchev de mands. It is the need for exposur of what imperialistic ambition with its militaristic Instruments means in relation to what is acl ually going on now in the so-cal ed "cold war" in Cuba and UUi America, as well as in the Mic die East, Africa and Southeas Asia.

For the benefit of the writer of the editorial, "On Everyone's Doorstep," I would like to ask vhere he gets his nerve, to forsake white people's rights, just because Negroes are shirking :he responsibility of fixing their own neighborhoods. White people have rights, too. It is bad enough when a man is forced to associate with people •\e doesn't wish to associate with in his place of business. When he is told whom he must live by, then the time has come :o reassert his freedom. Unless ve have a few freedom rallies of our own, we won't have any •ights left as white people. Negroes may ask "Why should I be discriminated against in my choice of good housing?" This can be answered with two statements: 1. Get busy and fix up your own neighborhoods and you will lave decent housing, and 2. Because you are forcing r our association on people, who or the most part want to be ble to pick their neighbors, not have them picked for them. If, Negroes weren't so busy marching and causing trouble, more of them would achieve the goals they claim they want. They want to be able to eat at ny restaurant and stop at any lotel. Fine. But why don't they et busy and build more of their wn? They want better housing. Vhy don't they build new houses n their own neigborhoods or ix up, or even take care of the jroperly they now have access o? Or do they find it easier to ake over other's property at •educed 'px-ices? I would say they find it very profitable changing colors of a neighborhood. As an example, a friend of mine bought a duplex in St. Louis a few years jack. He spent $6,000 fixing it up. The neighborhood changed colors and he finally ended up selling to colored for his origi- nal purchase price, losing all of his Imrpovements In the process. Is this an example of the equal housing they want? Regardless of the laws passed you are not going to force the races to mix freely. There wil always be trouble as long as you try to force people to live side by side, people who wan nothing to do with each other As you stated in your edl torial, if these fair housing laws are passed, there will be no place to run to. It is well known that when you trap an anima and he has no place to go, he'l turn on you. Regardless of' its disposition. And if it takes this to protect my rights of free as sociation,- then I am ready to give my all. BARNEY MURRELL, 1318 E. 4th St. Today's Prayer Unto Thee, Almighty God, we turn, assured mat Thou art the life of our life. We need Thy touch upon us as we confront the day and its issues. Forbid that we should let precious opportunities for serving Thee slip by us or end in unworthy choices. Through the warmth of Thy love prepare us to be channels of Thy grace and heavenly benediction. By the power of the Holy Spirit order our thinking, our willing, our adventuring. Impart to us the courage to accept the risks of our faith in Thee through Christ. Amen. '. —John Marvin East, Columbia S.C., executive secretary, Methodist Board of Education.

D., which those on the trip swore "not :o tell Drew Pearson about." However, here is what happened. The group left Washington in an immigration plane loaned by Attorney ' General Bob Kennedy which had been used to carry the last convicts from Alcatraz penitentiary and Cuban prisoners from Havana and smellcd like it. The plane was an hour and a half ate leaving because Sen, Harrison Williams, D-N.J., chairman of the Senate subcommittee on Mental Health, was late. Aboard were Rep. William Brock, .R-Tenn., the candy manufacturer from Chat- anooga; Rep. William Avery, R- Kans., and Rep. David Martin, H-Neb., who wanted a chance to fly home. Doctors and nurses at the first stop, the OsaWaiomie^Kans., state mental hospital,' had been waiting about two hours, and were a bit disappointed in not seeing more brass in the party. But they gave an inspiring demonstration of how mental patients have benefited irom the equivalent of a peace corps. Volunteers from the neighbOr- hood of Osawatomie; ranging from age 16 to 64, have come in to act hospital ,aides, reading to patients, entertaining theni, playing instruments to them. As a result, the hospital, with a capacity of 1,800 resident patients, is now down to 1,000. The reduction was accomplished largely by putting across the idea that other people care. Sen. Williams, who has been devoting himself to the difficult and thankless problem of mental health, believes a Domestic Peace Corps could work in ,other hospitals, also could he.lp lift t h e depressed areas of the Tennessee and Kentucky mountains. Depressed Indians To investigate conditions on the largest Indian reservation in the United States, the plane next flew to Pine Ridge, S. D., where the congressmen traveled through many miles of poverty and squalor — old wooden shacks, muddy roads, inadequate water supply. Pine .-Ridge covers, one million and a half acres just below the Black Hills. There Chief Red Cloud made a speecli to the visitors regarding neglect. It was a three-way conversation, through an interpreter, which took place alongside a crude monument of stones piled upon stones in memory x>f the original Chief Red Cloud. "You give us promises, but nothing happens," said the present Chief Red Cloud." Your troops massacred us. You put the rest of us to live by ourselves, you promise us many things, but you break your promises." Capt. William R. Anderson, (former commander of the first atomic submarine, Nautilus, who will be in charge, of. the Domestic Peace Corps if it is ok'd by Congress, introduced himself to Chief Red Cloud and answered. Defending President Kennedy, he pointed out that the' 1 broken promises had been made under the previous administration said that everything depends on money voted by iCongress. "We are here to do what we can," he said. Only one voluntary worker was helping the Indians on the Pine Lodge reservation — Miss Aline Cronshey, from Long Valley, N. J., who lias .set up a children's nursery. lluadiug for Home After an Indian war dance, Sen. Williams was ready to go home. Rep, Martin had hoped to be dropped off at his home, Kear- ny, Neb., but it was too-stormy to land there, and the plane headed for the SAC base at Lincoln, Neb. Capital Chaff One reason for the enthusiastic reception President Kennedy got on his recent trip to Germany was the terrific play given him by Karl Hans Hagen, editor-in-chfef of Quick. Quick, which is the German equivalent of Life, gave Kennedy the best coverage of any publications in Europe. It paid off with the sale of 127,000 extra copies for the issue featuring JFK on the cover . . .
