ALTOrSF TELEGftAPH: TUESDAY, JULV Editorial , ,-, . .!j .*;•-*' I! We Cati Make It Work SfitttliWfeStefh lllihois lias a planning com- 'ih the making — if we can make it toork. Governor Rerner has signed the bill sponsored by State Senator Paul Simon creating such A commission. Thd governing board, though large and Unwieldy, offers A reasonably broad representation of the governing bodies involved, as well as the public. For all practical purposes it is dominated by representatives of governmental bodies, with only two potential appointments from the citizenry — be made by the governor, himself. This, perhaps, is as it should be, since actions of the commission should represent first hand knowledge of public problems and potentialities. Our original recommendation that the Metropolitan East Chamber of Commerce Association serVe as a "watchdog" organization already is beginning to bear fruit, and should compensate more or less for the small number of private citizens on the commission. Senator Simon, who, as sponsor of the bill, could be expected to have a say in its execution, has announced he will recommend the MECCA be consulted before an executive directed is selected. He told MECCA even before the bill was appproved, he would see that it was consulted. Me made the statement even before he knew whether he was to receive any support from the organization — which promptly split in its attitude. Meanwhile, MECCA has been reminding the Senator of his earlier promise. So it would appear the Chamber men arc interested in offering considerable guidance to the program that some of them declined to endorse The Chamber of Commrccc group, after all, was originally set up — before Senator Simon offered his planning commission bill •— to provide a clearing house on plans and proposals for the development of the Madison-St. Clair county area. This was with a view to clarifying conceptions of such programs on this side of the river to match those being solidly laid out on the Missouri side. Newspaper executives, of the same area conceived the idea for the organization that eventually developed into*- MECCA. They, themselves, had found it profitable to meet " informally for discussions of problems and plans for the area. Now we can look forward to development of a commission with official status and professional guidance in analyzing the area's needs and working out answers. And MECCA will remain as a stabilizing influence. Tough Decision to Make It was an agonizing decision for the Illinois Division of Highways to make: Should the Clark Bridge be closed for two or three weeks on a needed repair job? Or should it be kept open to one-way traffic and the repair work prolonged to more than two months? It reached the decision: Close'the bridge and get the work over with as quickly as possible. • Our observation of traffic on the bridge at peak periods indicates that one-way traffic for nine weeks would arouse much more friction and create much more interference with the lives of those who must cross the river than a total closure for two or three weeks. We might suggest that some inquiry be made at the plants across: the river employing Alton workers as to possibility : of reshuffling vacations for the repairs period -— if the state can make up its mind just when the period is. We are well acquainted with the problems involved in re-arranging vacation schedules, but this approach appeals to us as desirable from both the workers' viewpoint and that of those who will find the Chain of Rocks bridge additionally glutted by the increase in traffic there. Let's hope this time the patching job, along with what's left of the original job of redccking the bridge performed after it became toll-free, will prove more durable. ""he state should not dismiss the cause of the breakup of the redecking job but should make an exhaustive study of it. Repairs of such breakdowns are not only expensive to the state in money, but, where two-lane bridges are involved, they are costly in time and inconvenience to the public using the span. Arousing Republican Interest For some months since Richard Nixon's defeat in 1960 it was assumed Governor Rockefeller would be the next Republican candidate for the presidency. This was an unhealthy situation in the Republican party. It led to resignation among many and to a general lackadaisical approach among all.,The Republicans could well have gone into their 1964 campaign cold, with a unanimous nomination for Rockefeller. But the New York Republican governor took the first of two important steps to arouse interest in the whole proceedings. He got a divorce, then he married a divorcee with four children. That aroused a lot of anger, and even more tongue-clacking. But it also whetted a lot of interest. And it gave Rocky an excuse to begin introducing both himself and his bride to the public. To date the public interest has swung from Rockefeller to Senator Barry Gold- water of Arizona, who has won the admiration of the Republican conservative group. Governor Rockefeller has called some of these radical conservatives — which some of them are — and warned Goldwater with more of less tact against becoming the captive of this group. Contrary to the fears expressed by some timid souls, the situation should be highly beneficial to the party. It is bound to call attention to it, and direct interest to its forming policies and aims, perhaps direct more ears and eyes to its attacks against Democrats and their leadership. Mr. Rockefeller is taking a greater interest in explaining himself and his plight to the voters. As time moves on and the initial shock of his marriage difficulties wears off, observers must expect to note a greater public acceptance of his situation. Certainly the little intra-party competition between him and Senator Goldwater can do little but good for the party. Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Children Watch Bomb Ban Too WASHINGTON — Averell Harriman and the Russian delegates in Moscow won't know it, but several million children will be in the position of looking over their shoulders as they discuss a ban on future nuclear testing. They are children whose thyroids can be enlarged by the increase of radioactive iodine in the atmosphere and whose bones would be weakened by Strontium 90 or who could someday develop leukemia because of the poison which adults in the United States 1 and Russia are unleashing through fall-out. Actually, not too many adult Americans know the entire story of how this poison is accumulating or the steps taken by the atomic officials to hide it. They probsbty do not knrw, for instance, that during the first four years of tne Eisenhower t.ominis- tratioii, nuclear testing totalled an average of between 19 and 20 magatons a year, which was considered a lot of radioactive fallout to 'spread in the atmosphere and was one reason why Adlai Stevenson, campa'gnin? tor president in 1956, took a strong though unpopular stand for a ban on testing. Eisenhower and Nixon accused him of ignor«r.cj and tl'pnUics, but about a year after the election, adopted hie proposal, 'ihere was no nuclear testing between 1958 and 1961. Then in September of tliat year the Russians resumed, followed by the United Stales, with a total of 120 megatons exploded against 20 tons annually in the early 1950s. In 1962, this went up to 217 megatons. AEC Was Worried »paoK Jn 4857, just after Steven- 00B publicly demanded the end of nuclear testing, the Atomic Energy- Commission appeared to agTee with him. It said: **Tbe consequences 9! the level Of further t«*ta* over the next tfWWl geflerftttanj at the level of the past flv» years could con' j| a. jjajaj-fl to the world's population." Now that the level has increased from around 20 magatons to 217 megatons, the AEC does not seem so worried. At any rate, the Federal Radiation Council, which the AEC dominates through executive director Dr. Paul Tompkins, has been extremely skittish about being pinned down on the danger point for further testing. Dr. Tompkins, a former AEC official and still paid by the AEC, las taken what amounts to a position that danger guide-lines foi nuclear testing should not be set Because they might have to be raised in order to permit more testing. This is why Sen. Bob Bartlett, the outspoken Democrat fiom Alaska, bucked his own Democratic administration with this warning: "I cannot help fealinp the.t the hesitancy in applying the radiation protection guide to fall-out is caused by *ne f°ar that Renge III levels may be alta ; ned and that c o u n t e r-measures may, therefore, be called for.

National Advertising Representatives: The Oranham Company, New York, Chicago, Detroit and St. Louis, niblcily expressed concern fo the application of counter-meas ures might have unpleasant eco nomic consequences. H the Federal Radiation Coun cil is not prepared to vecom mend counter-measures who third range danger levels are at tained, then why does it not sa> so and clearly?" asked the Sen ator from Alaska. "If the guid does not apply let the governmen stop using it. Let it be dropped a once. It is indefensible to coi tinue its use and at the same tim refuse to act when the guide-line indicate action." That is the danger the Unite States and the world face.

David Lnwretice RR Strikes Problem of Automation WASHINGTON - The public impression of the dispute between the railroads and their union em ployes Is that one side or the other is adamant ahd uncompro nllsing. But the truth of the mat ter is that what is happening to the railroad employes constitutes a human problem which will really never be solved satisfactorily by collective bargaining or arlii ti'ation or negotiation. When workers are laid off because of automation or new technological inventions, who shall take care of them? U has been estimated that there are between 25,000 and 40,000 railroad employes whose services may no longer be required. Many of them are not near retirement age and are willing to work, but there wil be no work for them in their present jobs. The railroad unions are trying to preserve as much as they can for the unfortunate workers who are affected. Union leaders, moreover, feel that they must not yield or they will be voted on of o f f i c e. Meanwhile, the com panies cannot afford to be philanthropic. Raflroads are in bad shape anyway because of competition with trucks, buses and airplanes. But all the explanations and reasons as to why automation is logical and inevitable do not erase the fact that a certain number of human beings are going to be hurt and that the railroad unions are struggling desperately lo find a way to postpone the day when the workers must be turned out of their jobs. Domestic Aid I'vognun There is one solution which wil occur to folks who read in the newspapers about the billions of dollars being appropriated bj Congress in the "foreign aid" pro gram. It is that perhaps there should be a "domestic aid" program. It may be that some of the natives in India or Nigeria or Indonesia would not be able to get s much money from the Ameri•an taxpayers as heretofore. But assuming that the principle of fo- eign aid is a good one, it mign e that a moratorium of a year r two certain apppropriations ould be effected and the s-ime mount of money used over sev- ral years to take care of train- icn, firemen, conductors and oth- rs in this country who have serv- d the railroads for a long time nd who are today the innocent ictims of automation. It's true that, if the present light of the workers could haw >een foreseen many years ago, m insurance fund or welfare fund f some kind might have been set p by contributions on the part f the union members as well as he employers. But the current unds are inadequate, and there s no private institution in the ountry capable of carrying t h e jurden. For whatever measures >f help are given the railroad em- ployes will certainly have to be applied some day to employes in other industries. The need for a "domestic aid" program is acute today. None of he workers wants to "go on re- ief." There are many jobs that could be performed by them with proper training. Even the rail- •oads could put into effect an ar rangement whereby, as certain employes are released, the iui 1 - oughed workers would be givei the first opportunity to be em ployed whenever vacancies oc cur in other departments of. tin business. Trainmen and conduc tors and firemen are intelligen enough to perform many dutiei in the offices and shops of the railroads. Those who are physically capable of working for manj years more are not able them selves to pay for the expenses in cm-red during a training period The whole problem, therefore does not involve laws or rules o technicalities in labor relations. I involves really a form of relie that is "comparable to that whic the federal government include in many of its welfare programs Problem for the States Although funds could be set u for the future to take care o some of these difficulties in manj lines of business, it begins to b apparent that only the govern ment of the United States and in state governments will be abl to deal with the problem of tern porary unemployment occasions by the coming of automation an other new devices that reduce th number of workers needed in fac lories and certan lines of Indus try. It is estimated that the United States has spent a total of $10 billion in "foreign aid" since th close of World War II. The avei age appropriation now per year is around $4 billion. It probably would not cost as much as $500 million annually to take care of a relief and training program for those employes who are gradually released in the next few years. But even if it costs as much as a billion dollars a year for a program of this kind, this is a rein- lively small item compared with the expenditures that are being made for the people of foreign lands. Also, a railroad strike could cost the country a billion dollars a month. Certainly the primary responsibility of the American government is to its own citizens, so mmy of whom year after year lave contributed income luxes- 1963. N.Y. Herald-Tribune, Inc.)

Readers Forum So They Can Clean Up After reading the R. C. Scheffel report on audit of the Wood River Township's tax discrepancies, I am convinced of two things: 1. It cost us $4,000 to find out we are $4,000 short. 2. No Small school boy would run a summer lemonade stand in the business manner followed by the former township officials. It is indeed a waste of the taxpayers' money. Can you imagine anyone paying out thousands of dollars of money entrusted to them without invoices, receipts and bil's? The Illinois revised statutes of 1961 slates that no official can patronize his own business. Mr. Grenzebach paid to himself from 1960 to March 31, 1963, the sum of $4,649.06 for gas and oil. Add to this the travel allowance of $600. Even the clerk's secretary received $600 per year. The only real traveler we have is Mr. Berghoff, who lives and works in Springfield and must travel 90 miles each way twice a month. I really don't begrudge the two retiring board members the hund red dollar wrist watches we bought them, but wouldn't it be nicer if we knew who they were? The audit records show, too, thai each month they took out $25 pet ty cash with no records or explan alien for its use. Twenty five dol lars per month for four years Is $1,200 dollars spent. Then too, while Mr. Podgers admits borrowing $3,289.80 .'rom the general fund and paying it back, he did not say that he "borrowed" from June 1, 1961 to Nov. 7, 1962, or what he used the money for. Does he owe interes to the fund? The auditing committee shoulc bow out, thereby affording th new officers a chance to clean up this mess. I sincerely hope the people o Wood River will attend the towi board tonight at the East Alloi town hall, and hear Scheffel & Co. answer questions from the floor. MRS. LUCY E. HAGAN 216 S. 13th Wood River Interpreted to Suit Before supporters of urban re- lewal here become too happy bout Mr. Weaver's decision to How one redevelopment pro- ram Without an inspection or- linance, they had better think bout what this means. In the first place, this is sup- osed to be a country and a gov- rnment of laws and not personal decisions. If there is a law which •equires that the City of Alton lave an inspection clause in the ordinance, (and we have been old this often enough), then how can one man rescind the law in me case as Mr. Weaver is doing? This is an example of one of he things we conservatives ob- ect to so much about the wel- r are state. The laws are made by Congress. Then the so-called 25 and 50 Years Ago Alderman HewW WittMef, citing the list of Injuries sustained from the July 4th holiday fireworks, announced he Would offer n resolution to prevent the sale and discharge of fireworks in Alton. The resolution, in keeping with national and state sentiment, would go beyond a year-old proposal by Mayor Leo Strtiif that the iproblem be jointly studied by Alton and Its adjoining communities before an ordinance was drawn.

Allen-Scott Report India to Get Top Defense Secrets administrators take over and interpret the law to suit their own fancy. Sometimes they get pretty fancy. I would also like to point out to the urban renewal enthusiasts another of the constantly recurring problems that urban renewal is naving in St. Louis. They were supposed to build a certain number of apartments in one portion of their big wasteland down there and one of the administrators has now decided that they will only build a third of the apartment which were contracted for, and that's that. When a city and its citizens decide to entrust the administrators in Washington with large piece of real estate, they can expect the same type of treatment.

S. is signing with India contains an unprecedented provision for a neutral country — giving her scientists access to vital U.S. defense installations and military secrets. Arrangements already are underway by White House assistants o bring 50 Indian scientists here this fall to familiarize them with he development and operation of top-secret rocket launching and radar systems. Under terms of this still-classified agreement, the Defense Department will roll out the red carpet for the Indian scientists and make available to them I h e most sensitive details of the Army's Nike-Hercules anti-aircraft missile system, the Air Force's round-to-air communication systems, and other vital details of U. S. radar developments. The security clearance of these visiting scientists — the vanguard of several hundred others to follow — is being left up to the government of Prime Minister Nehru — despite strenuous objections by Pentagon security officials. t They warn that tremendous security risks are involved because the Indian, government permits known Communists to hold key scientific posts and to work in crucial defense installations. Also citing the extremely close ties between scientific groups in India and Russia, the Defense security officials noted that under the U.S.-India pact there are no effective bars against the Indian scientists' passing on knowledge they gain in this country to Soviet friends.
