ALTON JfrEMNQ Editorial Kennedy v§. Nixon Again? Don't look how! But could former Vice President Richard Nixoit turn out to be the big dark horse of the 1964 Republican convention? Mr, Nlxea reached A low in popularity, perhaps through being mishandled in his personal relations with California's voters last year, Me told" off some newspaper reporters out there in a fit of anger. f Since then he's been Virtually quiet, attending to private business apparently— though nothing of that business has come to the surface. But what's he doing on this tour of Europe? In West Berlin he receives handkerchief waves over the "Wall" from East Berliners. At Tempelhoff Airdrome he echoes President Kennedy's promises that this country will stand firm and unified behind Europe and West Germany against communism. Away from the political throat cutting » * A Foe in the Middle Once again the state can wonder. . . We thoroughly sympathize with the question posed by Hayes Robertson, Cook county Republican chairman, about the advisability of appointing Rep. Leo Pfeffer, a Democrat from Seymour, to the newly-created state crime commission. Rep. Pfeffer voted against the proposal to form the commission. Pfeffer explained he didn't vote against the commission in principle, but against the appropriation for it. He might have depended upon Gov. Kerner, of his own party, to cut that down if it were truly objectionable. The governor has been known to use his veto power in this manner. ' It could be. that his presence on the commission, as Pfeffer himself suggests, would be useful, since he cites the need for one who refuses to be a "yes" man. We will all have to reserve judgment on that question until we can observe what kind over here he cart make public statements for consumption on this side with little fear of the type of cross-questioning he'd get over here. He received the compliment of A the*-' ough heckling by self-alleged representatives of the Iron Curtain press during a tour of East Berlin. To begin with, he went across With as little fanfare as possible — and certainly with as small a retinue of reporters. So his speeches and announcements, along with his welcomes, can come through loud and clear, healing the wounds that were inflicted on his image during the California state wars. Richard Nixon could very well be rebuilding his international image — art image that could go a long way in the Republican wars toward overflying the infighting and slugging now going on over domestic and personal issues between Republican candidates, .and even between President Kennedy and opponents of his policies here. of questions he asks. Sometimes opposition can be useful even if its only accomplishment is to make us re-think what we thought was good before. There was, however, too much hanky panky in the legislature over such things as the bill to ban use of indirect payoff pinball machines in the state, to assume that Rep. Pfeffer's appointment to the crime commission was completely above criticism. The legislature, for instance, finally amended the pinball bill to permit continued manufacture of the apparatus in Illinois. Argument for that "action was to save jobs for people working in the plants 'making the machines. In the end, now that four members of the House have been named to the commission — and we'd have preferred at least one Republican of our own Rep. Ralph T. Smith's caliber on it — the state will have to continue watching wishfully to see what kind of members the Senate and the Governor will name. Sharing Grief A Boost Sometimes it becomes embarrassing for a person, victimized by unscrupulous people, to get front page publicity out of it. Such matters must become public information, however,.-to save others becoming victims of the same sort of tricksterism. When such victimization remains secret, the public does not have the advantage of others' experience. Fortunately someone this -week recalled stories of similar incidents when a member of his family, an elderly woman, came near falling victim of a confidence game. He broke up the plot, and one of the tricksters was picked up by police later. Here is an illustration of the benefit of sharing these bits of information with the public, awkward as it may be at the time for the victim. The President's civil rights program got another unqualified boost Wednesday. Sidney Zagri, legislative council for the teamsters union, told a House subcommittee hearing on the program that the program was designed by Attorney Robert Kennedy for "his personal desires and ambitions." He said other unkind things about the program — and we would assume that most readers would regard these unkind words as actual support. In contrast was the appearance, in the program's behalf, of Dr. ' Eugene Carson Blake, chief administrative officer of the United Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A., who spoke for himself and top representatives of both She Roman Catholic and Hebrew faiths. Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Holifielcl's Quick Change of Life WASHINGTON — Rep. Chet Committee." Holifield, the Los Angeles Democrat considered the big bull in the atomic china shop,-has had an interesting change of life. There was a time when' Chet ached for the professors at C a 1 Tech who signed a round robin urging an end of nuclear tests. John McCone, then a stalwart Eisenhower Republican, now a tepid Kennedy Republican as head of Central Intelligence, was vigorous in his criticism of these professors. As a member of the Cal Tech Board of Regents he seemed on the verge .of disciplinary action. Chet Holfield at that time valiantly came to their rescue. Now that Chet has experienced his congressional menopause, however, lie lines up on the side of John McCone, discounts the danger of radioactive fallout and even wants to hand fissionable materials, the .deadly ingredients for the atom bomb, otfer to private industry. He is also the biggest booster for building nuclear reactors in or near big' cities regardless of possible danger. It's interesting how a Congressional menopause can make a man forget. Here are some instances of Chefs forgetfulness: 1, Last week the Congressman told tills column: "These reactors are perfectly safe.. .In the event of a breakdown there would be no explosion but rather the reactor would simply overheat and melt down and all radioactivity would be encased in the concrete and steel foundations." But In 1957, the same Congressman said: "If the controls of nuclear reactor fail, it could explode and release radioactive clouds of gas and contaminated material in solid or liquid form Into the countryside area." "This bill," he said, referring to a proposed plan to have the U S. Government provide half billion dollars of insurance agains a nuclear accident, "would Place the I e d e r A I government in an enormous potential liability tha could reach several hundred bll In 1957 the same Holifield said: 'How can we be sure that the Atomic Energy Commission won't overrule the Safeguard Committee as it has done in the past?" 3. Last week discussing subsidies from Uncle Sam to help the private utilties build nuclear reactors, Holifield said: "The actual subsidies proposed are only 16 per cent of the total cost. Why shouldn't we- provide this aid? We've given the same subsidy to the rails and the airplanes." But in 1957, the same Congressman from suburban Los Angeles aid: "I am opposing this bill be- .ause it would provide another government subsidy to atomic xnver without any commensurate jenefits to taxpayers and power consumers.' 4. Last week Rep. Holifield, in discussing : the proposal to build a nuclear reactor at Malibu Beach on property owned largely by Bob lope near the famed Malibu Jeach resort, said: "I wouldn't make an area unsafe where I have three daugh- ers and thirteen grandchildren •esiding.' But in 1957, Rep. Holifield tolc Congress: "I have always been foi constructing them like they are constructed now in isolated areas. But now they are allowing them o build these reactors close to cities and that is the thing I am te WlW 2, Last week lioMeld reason ed: "The safety oj these reactors ii insured since they have to be " as safe, by a ~ ' afraid of." It is difficult to know which Chet Holifield to believe. Atom-Go-Kound Chet Holifield's July 29 hear ngs to hand fissionable material over to private industry will be a put-up-job calculated to sell the dea to Congress, not encourage free discussion. Witnesses are carefully picked to present the idea in a favorable, light. Wit :iesses had to submit 12 copies o .heir proposed testimony as ear ly as July 15 and the average sci enlist didn't even know abou when t(je hearing was going to b held, let alone have time to pre pare a statement by July 15. What the Joint Atomic Energ committee of Congress needs i the former devotion to Sen. Clit Anderson, (D-N.Mex.) Clint is no' giving his time to the Space Com mittee. He was once the public chief watchdog on the Joint Ato mic Committee .., Anderson, a ex-newsman, played a vital -par in unearthing one of the grea scandals of the first post-war period — Teapot Dome/Working Albuquerque, Anderson notice that Albert K. Fall, secretary < the Interior under Harding, su David L&wtenw GOP Can Get Support from Irked Whites WASHINGTON -.There ap- fjears in the current Issue of NewsWeek" a poll conducted by Harris/a veteran pollster, •hich should be .examined care- ullyV by Republcan as well as Democratic strategists inte^ ested in planning the 1964 presl- entlal campaign. The boll shows that President Cennedy would get 91 per cent of le Negro Vote In the 1964 elec- on If Goldwater were the Re- ublican candidate. Also, the tab- lations indicate the result would e about 89 per cent if Rocke- eller or Romney were the Re- ubllcan nominee. The poll points ut, moreover, that In 1960 Mr. <ennedy got 85 per cent. of the Sfegro vote, while 11 per cent Verit to Mr. NiXon. So it appears that the Republi- :ans got an Inconsequential pro- rortion in 1960, and they would iet less in 1964. It also appears :iat Mr. Kennedy has made little ;ain among the Negroes de- pite liis energetic efforts in their )ehalf in "civil rights" matters, t is surprising that he didn't get 00 per cent of the Negro vote in ic recent poll. Recently Senator Goldwater ias been attacked by some crit- cs as being interested in making Republican party "lily white" r a "white man's party." The uestion naturally arises whether presence of a substantial num- er of voters in any party per- nits the coloration of that party's ame. Would it proper now, for nstance, to call the Democratic arty "the Negroes' party" be- ause the Negro voters happen to e prepared to support the Demo- ratic nominee in 1964? Strategy Important More important than party lab- Is, however, is strategy. Will the .epublicans continue to try to out- romise the Democrats on "civil ghts" just to woo the Negro ote, which the polls for the last 5 years or more have consistent- t shown to be on the Democratic de anyhow by a comfortable, lajority in every president al election? ,' .- > The Negro vote began to shift eavily from the Republican par- to the Democratic party -in he 1932 election due to economic onditions. Many, 4 NegrQes found emselves on government relief 1 the 1930's and in subsequent ections they showed their gra- tude for the aid they received om the Democratic .administra- on. They put aside memories of r hat Abraham Lincoln and the Republicans had done for them and deserted their historic position >ecause they were far more in- erested in jobs and -wages ; -and omething to live on than they •ere in what happened in the 860's. The Republican party today is orely in need of a new strategy, ome of its leaders come from eavily populated states, like New 'ork and Illinois, in which, if the ivision were close in these areas, ic Negro vote could hold a balance of power. But the truth is ic "integration" problem has aroused many protests-among the vhite population in the populous ,tates of the North, and it is doubtful whether President Kennedy could carry, for instance either Illinois or New York if In oses any substantial part of th' 'white vote" on such issues as school integration or unemploy ment among whites that may be brought about through favoritism shown Negroes. The race disturbances in t h e North in 'recent months indicate that "civil rights" is by no mean a simple issue. Resentments are created, for example, when arbi trary "quotas" are set to limi the right of parents .to send thei: hildren to public schools in thei: own neighborhood so that Negrc children from distant neighbor hoods may be permitted to attem those same schools." The South, of course, lias po tentially a big resentment vot that probably will be cast eithe THE LITTLE WOMAN Three Forum writers have com- icnted on what they believe the merican Negro should do, or be, efore sharing the benefits of cit- zenship with the rest of our Vmericans. Pointing out the most obnoxious liaracteristics of the individual uman, these writers attempt to ublimely convey to the reader hat the slums, ignorance, and pc- erty are exclusively Negro char- cteristics. However, those who mploy these tactics must bear he guilt for perpetuating these ordid conditions among the Ne- roes. The very white person who vers Negroes are not ready for quality because they are "ignor- nt, poor," etc., are the very nes who will deny a qualified 'egro a decent job, an education r opportunity to buy in a good eighborhood, then will point to he fact that the Negro has none f these, thus continuing the cy- le.

This 'pressure comes from far off Peking, via Macao and Hong Kong.; The pressure is still from a distance because there are comparatively few Chinese Communist agents trained for Latin American operations. Intelligence sources report there are but 370 of these special Chinese mainland Communists in all of Central, South and Caribbean America — outside of Cuba. But thousands more are now being trained in 6 special colleges in Peking. There are only a handful in this land of the big Canal. They put -t h e "muscle" directly on the Latin Chinese, while the' "heat", comes rom the/Orient in., the form of threats to the families of Chinese back home. This is the beginning of Peking's drive to develop the Latin Chinese .into a continental base for one of the most daring operations, since Genghis'Khan marched westward.
