Section 2 ALTON EVENING ELEGRAPH CAntntftctl Established Jahuary 15, 1836. ALTON, ILL., TUESDAY, JULY 30, 1963 7c Per Copy Member of The Associated Press, Overproduction Puts JL Kabosh on Milk Plan CHICAGO (AP) - The govern mcnt has announced that it is dropping a controversial milk- pricing regulation after concluding that it promoted ove'rproduc tion In the three major Midwest producing areas where It has been in effect The Pure Milk Association, which represents most of the producers Involved, said Monday that it had been notified of the change by the U.S. Agriculture Department. The regulation applied to farmers supplying the,Chicago, South Bend and Rock River Valley areas. The PMA suld It received notification that dairy farmers in the three markets will not make new production bases this fall and the base-excess differential in pricing will be abandoned. Under the regulation, dairymen have received a slight premium rate on milk volume sales within their base production ratings, but slightly less for milk sold in excess of this volume. The rating formula fixed monthly base production for the following year at the level of average actual production in September, October and November. Since cows give more milk in the spring-than in the fall, the PMA contended in hearings recently before a USDA examiner, farmers enlarged herds in the fall to build larger production bases. The result has been overproduction for the 12,000 PMA farmers in the market areas, with over-all depression of milk price levels, the association said. A. L. McWilliams, general manager of PMA, said elimination of the base-excess program removes the compulsion which producers have felt to make as big a production base as possible in the fall months. McWilliams said that dairy farmers who receive superpool premium payments on milk used for bottled fresh milk sales will continue to receive these, payments in accordance with present agreements.

Says Race Crisis Hits At Democratic Way LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The current racial crisis is not a crisis of the Negro, or of the conservative, or of the reactionary white. It. is a crisis of the American people and the democratic way of Six Treated At Jersey Hospital JERSEYVILLE — Several pu- tients were treated at I lie Jersey Community Hospital over the weekend for minor head injuries resulting from various accidents. Jacqueline McClary, 2'/2, daugn ler of Mr. and Mrs. Edgar McClary of Jerseyvillc, sustained a laceration of the scalp Saturday evening when she fell from the scat of a car and hit her head on the dash board. She was treated at the hospital and then released. Mark Gorsick, 8, whose parents are Mr, and Mrs. Raymond Gorsick of E. St. Louis, suffered a head injury while visiting on u farm in Jersey County Sunday. He was swinging on u rope swing and fell off hitting his head on a car lacerating his _ scalp. The wound was sutured at the hospital. .Ricky Spears, 5, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Spears of Chesterfield, fell off a horse at the home of an aunt in Jersey County Sunday morning and incurred a laceration of the scalp which was sutured at the Jersey Community Hospital. . Joseph Czaia. 11, son of Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Czaia of Fieldon, fractured his left forearm about 4:30 p.m. Saturday when he fell out of a tree at his home, He was admitted to the hospital for treatment. John Little Jr., of Jerseyville was involved in an automobile accident at 7 p.m. Sunday on Rte. 67A one mile from Jerseyville. He reported that a car pulled in front of him and the accident resulted. Little had a cut on the left shoulder.

He was given emergency treatment at the hospital and then transferred to the Memorial Hospital in Alton for further treatment. life," says criminologist Joseph D. Lohman. Dr. Lohman, dean of the School of Criminology of the University of California at Berkeley, told the National Urban League on Monday that Negroes make up 10 per cent of the nation's population and yet account for 20 per cent of juvenile delinquency. "Negro youth are exposed to the evil effect of being blocked from cultural assimilation in our cities," said Lohman, "and their crime Is the abortive fruit of our failure. We are at a critical juncture In American community development." Nelson C. Jackson of New York, associate executive director of the league said earlier that the effects of discrimination are becoming intensified as cities grow. Jackson estimated that the un employment rate is twice as high among Negroes as that of the na tion in general. About 50 per cent of Negroes between 16 and 21 are not working, he said, and more than two-thirds of Negroes who do have jobs are grouped in five unskilled and semi-skilled job classifications. He did not list them. "Part of tliis," Jackson said, "is because fair employment policies in the national offices of businesses and unions have trickled down to the local level for positive action." The league is a social work agency which attempts to improve conditions for the urban Negro. Other major problems cited by Jackson include discrimination in housing and education. He said eight million Negro students per year drop out of high school, due to "lack ,of incentive and a limited career range beyond high school." Russians Rap Red Chinese War Views MOSCOW (AP) — The Soviet Communist party'. charged today that Chinese Communist leaders are staggeringly ignorant or criminal adventurers. Denouncing the Chinese thesis that a third world war would bring a complete victory for communism, an article in Pravda by Peter N. Pospelpv said: "It is difficult to say what predominates in such statements of the Chinese leaders: staggering ignorance and lack of understanding of what a modern thermonuclear world war would mean, or a criminally adventurist and flippant attitude toward the destinies of humanity." Zoo Animals Taught New Tricks ST. LOUIS /P—Who's who at the zoo? The big drawing cards are elephants, lions and chimpanzees — not necessarily in Ihut order. And each has quirks. Trainers at the big St. Louis zoo, in their yearly ritual of teaching old animals new tricks, classify them this way: Elephants really don't have long memories, lions are more honest than tigers, and chimpanzees have a group boss. Trainer Mike Kostial says his b i g g e s I problem is keeping ahead of the "boss," a chimpan- zee who secretly decides when the class will cooperate and when it won't. Kostial has to fight to get them to keep their shirts on. "When my back is turned the boss will unzip another chimp's costume," he says, "and before I know it I have a nudist colony on my hands." Trainer Floyd Smith says the old saw about elephants having long memories just isn't so. "Why, I deliberately drop all training from October until February so they won't forget the sequence of lust summer's tricks," he says. "This allows me to introduce new tricks to the elephants from year to year —and they're none the wiser." Jules Jacot still has all his extremities despite years of putting lions and tigers through their paces. "Lions are more honest than tigers," he says. But Jules doesn't respect tigers any less for their treachery — "there are good guys and bad guys everywhere." With that, he reached through the cage bars to pat Rajah on the nose. The snarling tiger tried to make a pre-lunch snack of Jacot's hand, but missed. WHO'S THE BOSS HERE? These chimpanzees have their own the zoo's dally trick show, lie says one boss, and trainer Alike Kostial of the of the chimps always takes over ana St, Louis Zoo says it's not himself, decides when the group will cooperate.

(AP) — Where does an air force enlisted man [rom far off Korea — or Greece — or Ethiopia — go when he has a weekend pass from Chanute Air Force Technical Training Center. It's no problem for foreign airmen in training at the big Rantoul, 111., Air Force establishment. An increasing number of them lead for Manteno, a typical corn- land town of 11,083 some 70 miles north of the base, confident of a 3leasant weekend as house Some of them have returned Lime and again and visited a favorite family or several.

Four 4-H clubs are planning a super picnic for Aug. 10 at Camp Shaw-Wa-Na-See, not far from town, with the host group, the Manteno International Relations Program participants lelping out. Mrs. Richard Lidberg, chairman of the program which operates in close harmony with Technical Training Command officers, said Tuesday that 47 airmen from LG countries have visited her family in the last 32 months. She said 10 or a dozen families now are regular havens for weekenders from Chamite. The Air Force operates a weekend bus service from the base to Munteno Saturday forenoons and aack Sunday nights to accommodate the traffic.

'Clear View' Law Involved In Test Case CHICAGO (API— The constitutionality of a section of the state's liquor control law may be tested under a suit filed in superior court by the Kismet Club, a Chicago bar. The club alleges i n the suit filed Monday that the city is illegally enforcing the law which says bars without restaurant licenses must provide a full view of their facilities from the street. Enforcement is illegal, the suit says, because the city granted a liquor license to the club with full knowledge that a "clear- view" did not exist. Now, says the suit, it would take "great and extensive structural changes" to meet the law. The suit seeks a hearing and an injunction to prevent enforcement. The clear-view requirement is unconstitutional, the suit alleges, because it does not apply equally to restaurants, hotels, private clubs and bowling alleys and is discriminatory because the club pays license fees equal to that paid by these other types of establishments. •"• Money Problems? - - CONSOLIDATE If you are unable to pay your paymenti, debt», or bills when due, arrange payment! you can afford regard* let$ of how much or how many you owe, One place to pay, No co-iignen or »ecurity needed!

The chance to acquire one arose last August whn the Weir property was up for sale and a smal group of interested individuals in Edwardsville bought the home in order to hold it for the Society's possible purchase. The group composed of Mrs. Frank Godfrey, John C. Abbott and Mr. and Mrs. Stephen R.

Recent census of fruit trees in Highway Toll Reaches New 6-MonthHigh CHICAGO (AP)—Traffic deaths ose to a record June peak last nonth and brought the fatality mint for the first half of 1963 to new high, the National Safety Council reported today. There were 18,930 auto fatalities hrough June 30, a 5 per cent increase over the 18,010 recorded he first six months of 1962, the jr record for the first half year. Traffic deaths in June rose 1 per cent to 3,740 from 3,700 in June 1962. This marked the 18th month to show an increase since November 1961. The only two months in the period which failed o follow the upward trend were December 1962, unchanged, and January 1963, which showed a slight decrease. Because the amount of auto ravel increased 4 per cent the irst six months of 1963, the resulting death rate for the period vas 4.9 fatalities per 100 million miles traveled. This was essen- ially unchanged from the previous year. Last month, however, travel increased 4 per cent over June 1962 ind the mileage death rate was 5.3, down from 5.5 the previous June. In the first half of this year 650,000 persons suffered injuries disabling beyond the day of thi accident. Among cities of more than on million population, Los Angele; tin fo; remained in first place with lowest vehicular death rate the first half of 1963. The city reg istered 2.5 fatalities per 10.00C registered vehicles. Philadelphia was second with a rate of 2.8 and Detroit, third with 2.8.

(AP)-The 1963 Illinois State Fair wlil swing open its gates for a 10-day run Aug. 9 apparently free from the, internal strife and external crlti* cism which shrouded It a year ago. In the new and harmonious atmosphere, officials hope to make the event the most successful In the fair's 111-year history." Space for concession stands, has long been sold out, ticket sales are running ahead of last year and entries are up In scores of divisions. Attendance, says fair manager Franklin Rust, could hit the coveted one million mark. This would top by 150,000 the crowd lured into the sprawling fairgounrds at last year's exposition.

The once avored Elberta now constitutes inly about 4 per cent of the total lumber of producing trees, Randall pointed out. In the vegetable growing industry, Randall said, there is constant research under way for better varieties. "One thing we are constantly on the outlook for," stated Randall, "is a species of tomato hat can be harvested successfully with machinery. It must mature and ripen all of its fruit at the same time and be a sturdy plant capable of standing erect so as to be picked up with machine."

Hefner las been denied by Municipal Court Judge Nicholas J. Matkovic. Trial was set for Oct. 7. The defense motion, denied Monday questioned the legality of i city ordinance used in bringing •\ charge of selling obscene literature against Hefner, 37. The charge was based on publication of nude photographs of actress Jayne Mansfield in the magazine's June 7 issue. The court, however, did uphold defense objections to three city requests as being not relevant or necessary. The requests asked for all photographs of Miss Mansfield used in the magazine, all correspond was removed by Gov. Otto Kerner as agriculture director in January because of a running feud with Rust over fair policies. Kerner has given Rust a free hand in directing the exposition. And few could be more pleased with the move than Bradley's successor, Robert Schneider. He said recently he was delighted that Rust had been put in sole charge of the fair. Also missing this year are the verbal blasts which were leveled at the fair a year ago when the state was experiencing a financial pinch. Several economy- minded foes suggested the fair's activities be sharply curtailed. Their cricitism had little, if any, effect. During opening day ceremonies, Kerner is to dedicate a new $1 million junior livestock building. More than $550,000 will be awarded in livestock competition alone. Thousands of dollars more will be presented in nonagricultural events. Rust said the grand parade on opening day, designated as Children and Youth and Agricultural Day, will be the largest ever. More than 1,300 baton twirlers and 1,500 Boy Scouts and other youths are slated to participate. Days also have been set aside to honor veterans, women, senior citizens and central Illinois. Politicians will take over two days— Republican Day Aug. 14 and Governor's Day Aug. 15. Although youth and agriculture will capture the limelight as in past expositions, the harness, motorcycle and auto racing programs are expected to do their share in attracting thousands to the fair. Trotters and pacers will compete for purses totaling $408,000 during a six-day racing program. On hand for auto racing fans Aug. 17 will be some of the biggest names in the business, including Jim Hurtubise, winner of the last two Illinois State Fair 100-Mile National Championships. Out to wrestthe crown from Hurtubise will be Parnelli Jones, winner of the 1963 Indianapolis 500, and Rodger Ward, two-time winner of auto racing's top prize.
