ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THUKSBAY, AUGUST If 1863 Editorial Try It a Different Way If at first you don't succeed", try it a different way — We hope this kind of attack on the sotlthside interceptor phase of the city sewer project will provide an avenue of greater success than the city's first attempt at letting a contract. When bids were called on the project as a unit, only two bids were entered in the listings, fhe lowest was more than 50 per cent over the estimates of two of the state's most highly reputable firms of civil engineers. Still the contractor moaned before a city council meeting that the newspaper and radio were being unfair to him when they emphasised this fact and urged the council to call for new bids. Now the city administration is planning to divide the overall work into smaller units, with a view to encouraging smaller contractors to enter the bidding when proposals are opened in September. » * * Nuclear Talk Goes on Even as the Senate is conducting inquiries into the agreement on nuclear weapons testing reached at Moscow, last week, further encouragement for the world's future is contained in the fact that the 17-nation dis- armanent conference at Geneva still is working — and that the United States representatives there still seek control of underground tests. The Moscow treaty, of course, is for banning tests in the upper atmosphere, in space, and under water. Underground tests always have been difficult to supervise because of detection problems. And Russia has always bucked at inspection plans. Meanwhile, though French President Charles DcGaulle refuses to enter the te'st- ing ban agreement, we can hardly regard the situation as serious unless Russia allows his abstinacy to furnish an excuse for backing down. France has set off nuclear explosions. But until we all approach the total disarmament problem, DeGaule can hardly be a threat. Another factor in September, too, can well be settlement of new agreements between contractors and the construction unions with which they must work. 6y that time we can hope this added uncertainty of cost will be removed. Southern Illinois University obtained bids on some new building units recently which almost took the trustees' breaths away, they were so far below the engineer's estimates On the general contract. A factor here was that the successful contractor already has his equipment on the grounds performing another job. Other bids on other work, however, brought a proposal from the trustees for a government inquiry. They exceeded estimates on only a slightly larger percentage than the low Alton sewer bid. There is no good reason, however, why Alton should not be able to get a reasonable bid on its sewer construction. He has neither the advancement in technique, nor the weapons capacity to pose a threat that would bring him victory in any wars he might start. The other nuclear powers have so much greater capacity as to make France's nuclear weapons of no use whatever except as negotiation leverage. —• And we're not very smart if we allow him to use them that way. Meanwhile, he may be of use to the West as the hatchet man. Through his putting on the brakes as he has been doing, Russsia may find reason to slow down in its negotiations and back away from some of our proposals. This should cramp Moscow in its sometimes efforts to appear leading the West in the quest for peace. If Moscow intends to be insincere about negotiations, it will have plenty of excuse to back away rather than push new proposals at us so fast we hardly have time to analyze all their potentialities. France can be quite useful in this role without hurting our western cause at all. The End-We Hope Fortunate As Dr. Stephen Ward's trial came to its end in London, this side of the world doubtless will draw a breath of relief. Some newspapers on this side of the Atlantic actually have been announcing a policy of restricting reports of the trial to absolute essentials, so their readers will be able to tell how its going. The Chicago Tribune the other day announced it was cutting its reports of the trial to the bone. And we believe the general wire services have been doing a fairly strict job of cleaning it up, anyway. Dr. Ward gave it an added shot of interest with his drug overdose. The whole thing is sorbid, shoddy, and had it not been for the original involvement of a British minister, would have been unimportant. Unfortunately the involvement of the minister and the entire British government splattered the affair on front pages from the beginning. But we believe the world and its newswatchers tired of it weeks ago. We're glad it's about over. County history buffs are fortunate in being able to put into service another of their more eminent retiring citizens even before he retired. The Madison County Historical Society announced Wednesday it was selecting A. Edson Smith, now resigning as superintendent of East Alton-Wood River Community High School, as curator of its new museum. Supt. Smith has added luster to his reputation in the education profession during his years at Wood River, and has demonstrated well his interest in making the county's history live during three years' service as president of the society. We believe the historical group is particularly fortunate in having Mr. Smith available for the post. Having served as president of the society and being well acquainted with the history of the county as well as its feeling for such things, he should be able to fit into the situation with a minium "break-in" period. Drew Pearson"s Merry-Go-Round The Military Undermines Peace Editor's Note -r- Drew Pearson, who has probably covered more international conferences than any other newsman in Washington, today reports on President Kennedy's step toward peace. WASHINGTON — It has b e e n true, ever since I can remember, that the military always tried to undercut a civilian president's steps toward disarmament and peace. In this, they have been completely bipartisan. They have tried to undercut Republican pres- dents just as much as they tried to undercut Democrats. And they have received plenty of help from the war contractors and defense industries. The success of John F. Ken- neyd's first step in the 1,000 mile journey toward peace will, therefore, depend in part on the military. I remember vividly reporting on the activities of William Baldwin Shearer, paid ?40,000 by Bethlehem Steel, Newport News Ship and other defense contractors, to disrupt the Coolidge Naval Conference in Geneva in 1927. The steel companies and shipyards were willing to put up what was then a very large amount of money because they didn't want arms reduction and peace, They preferred the risk of war. And H was Admiral Joseph Reeves, chief U.S. naval adviser at Geneva, who played ball deliberately and brazenly with lobbyist Shearer. SliiKseii is Undermined There was also Admiral Hilary P, Jones, adviser to the London naval conference during the Hoover administration, who came back to testify against any limitation of 10,000-ton cruisers, though the batUe of the Graf Spee during World War II showed that two '6,000 ton British cruisers, could: run circles argund the 13,* OQQ-ton Craf Spee and put her out ol action. Moie recently tlyjre yms the case !«tf Elsenhower's efforts at t' when BwwW Stag- lH«l «» agreement with the Russians similar to that just initialed by Averell Harriman. But Ike's own military under m i n e d him. Bulganin and Khrushchev in 1957 appeared willing to go even further than t h e present test ban agreement, w ere even discussing the withdrawal of the Red army from Hungary and other satellite countries. But the U.S. military got to Nixon and John Foster Dulles, and Stassen was told to take a back seat. How much the military had to do with sending the U-2 spy plane over Russia just on the eve of a summit conference dedicated to peace has never been definitely ascertained; it is known that the U-2 started from a U.S. military base in Turkey and refueled at another U. S. base in Pakistan.

To JFK and McNamara privately, the expressed concern at the refusal oi some scientists to guarantee that all atmospheric tests can be detected. They believe our present system is foolproof, but that powerful Soviet rockets could get away with testing H-bombs hundreds of thousands of miles in space. However, most scientists agree that this likelihood is too remote to let it wreck the best chance in years to end the cold war. Gen. Curtis Lemay, the A i r Force chief, also pointed out that Russia is ahead in building monster bombs over 20 megatons, is believed to have reduced a 30- megalon warhead to a size that will fit on their giant intercontinental missiles. The largest warheads our missiles can lift packs only a 6-megaton punch. Secretary of Defense McNamara argued, however, that the United States is ahead of Russia in the development of most nuclear weapons, therefore, a test ban would be more to the detriment of Russia. He also claimed that our laboratories have amazing computers which can simulate nuclear explosions and thus enable o u r scientists to continue developing any weapons we may still need. McNamara argued that monster H-bombs cannot destroy a target any riiore effectively than our smaller bombs, therefore, have no real military value except as a terror weapon. The terms of reference were different, but it sounded very much like the old argument of whether a 7,50Q-ton cruiser could .steam fast enough to knock out a 10,000- ton cruiser, What the military forgot is that once atomic war gets started nobody will have a chance to argue about anything. (© 1863, Bell Syndicate, Inc.) awrence Did Soviet Put Over a Past Deal? WASHINGTON — sooner or la ter the trickery in the treaty ban ning certain nuclear tests w a s bound to emerge, but it was hard-i ly expected to become evident soj quickly. For the stratagem by which the United States and the other Western powers are to be inveigled into a recognition of thp puppet government of East Germany has just been revealed. Waiter Ulbrichl. head of the East German Communist regime, announces that East Germany will sign the treaty after it has been formally signed by the United States, Great Britain and the Soviet Union. A United Press In ternational dispatch from Berlin says: "The East German signature of the treaty could embarrass West Germany and the Western allies because they do not recognize East Germany. They would be in the position of being signatory to a pact along with a nation they do not wish to deal with. East Germany would be sure to consider this a measure of do facto recognition." But the significance goes beyond a mere technicality. It advertises dramatically to the world the acceptance of East Germany as a partner in international agreements with the West. Senator Everett M. Dirksen, Republican leader in the Senate, anticipated this very step when on Tuesday of this week he issued a statement which said: "Any nation can become a party to the treaty automatically simply by notifying the United States, the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union that it accedes to or has ratified the treaty. . . . "Since the Soviet Union in 1949 imposed on East Germany its puppet government known as the 'German Democratic Republic,' the United States and the United Kingdom have refused, despite repeated Soviet urging, to acknowledge East Germany as a state because its boundary claims violate the Potsdam agreement. Party to the , Treaty Under the treaty draft for a partial test' ban, East Germany, by the simple and, at present, meaningless act of depositing with the United States and the United Kingdom instruments of accession to the treaty would compel' them under Section 5 to notify all other signatories that this 'state,' which neither the United States nor the United Kingdom recognizes as a state,' had become a party to the treaty. There would be no recourse under the treaty's language. Communist Cuba, by complying with procedures under Article III, could of course, qualify automatically as a party to the treaty. The treaty would prohibit Cuba from nuclear testing underwater, in the atmosphere and in outer space, but would permit — with the United States a party to the permission — underground testing in the caves of Cuba. The United States, which only nine months ago was on the brink of war because of the presence of Soviet nuclear warheads in Cuba, would now find itself in the role of a co-partner extending sanction by treaty to the underground development of nuclear warheads by Cuba." Did the Soviets put over a fast one on the Western envoys who negotiated the treaty banning certain nuclear tests? Was Premier Khrushchev mostly interested in getting a signature quickly to a treaty whose provisions might be meaningless in themselves but which enabled him to attain a position of parity in the diplomatic world, not only for the Com munist-bloc countries in E a s tern Europe but for East Germany itself? It now becomes apparent what the tactics of the Soviets really were. It is inexplicable why the Western representatives were so ready to accept as signatories all countries irrespective of whether they had any real realtionship to nuclear testing. Open to All States The net result of all this is to put the United States in the position of recognizing the violation of the Potsdam agreement and accepting East Germany as a state. It could raise soon the question of how any military rights can be maintained under the allied agreement of 1945. It paves the way for the annexation of West Ber lin by the Communists as an in tegral part of the new "state" — East Germany. The nuclear treaty itself can be dissolved at any time on three months' notice when cheating is suspected or for any other rea son. But acceptance of Soviet aggression and the continued mill- jtary occupation of East Germany by honoring an East German signature on the new treaty hardly represents a "victory for man kind," as President Kennedy jub ilantly characterized the same treaty just a few days ago. Moral issues seem to have been brushed aside. The Soviet Union maintains her armies in many countries in Eastern Europe and her subversive organizations thai cause disturbances and infiltrate governments on every continent- How can any "state" be accepted as an honorable partner in the signing of a treaty when the people themselves are still enslaved? «& 1893, N.Y.

They have good reason o smile and must find it hard to <eep from laughing in our representatives' faces. In the last 25 years the Soviet Union has signed 52 major agree- nents with the United States and broken 50 of them. And yet with a record like this, our government goes back time and again to sign more of these worthless pieces of paper. No wonder they laugh at us! Our government cannot say it did not know what the Communists were like. The Communists have made their Intentions perfectly clear in their writings and speeches. Lenin has said that "Promises are like pie crusts — made to be broken." In a lecture at the Lenin School of Political Warfare in Moscow, Dimitri Manuilski, one-time presiding officer of the UN Security Council said: "War to the hilt between communism and capitalism s inevitable. . .To win, we shall need the element of surprise. The jourgeois will have to be put to A Half Cent Tax Rate I was interested to read H. C. Boyd's letter in the Readers' Forum on July 26 questioning the proposed $6,000 fee for an engineering . survey of a cross-town route. These comments, it seemed to me, were timely and very much in order. I wrote a letter to each alderman on this subject July 9. But it seemed to do little good as only Mr. Deterding voted against the appropriation. In view of the great furor that was raised over a very small tax rate increase under council- manager government, it is hard "1 see money, lots of money—all going out, none coming in!" Readers Forum * '. .. Like Pie Crusts' sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. "There will be electrifying ov- lures and unheard-of concessions. "The capitalistic countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate In their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends." As soon as their guard is down, we shall smash them with our clenched fists." Khruschev told his people in 1959: "You should not take too seriously the treaties made with the imperialists. Lenin, too, signed a peace treaty after World War I that remained valid only so long as it proved necessary." Eveir with all these warnings given to us by the Communists, themselves, and their disgusting record, our negotiators have drafted yet another of these traps. The Russians will keep this treaty as long as they need time to ready another round of tests, and then they will break this test ban just like they broke the last one.

The Allen-Scott Report Investigating Counterfeit Gold WASHINGTON — Treasury and Secret Servica agents are quietly investigating a heavy flow of "counterfeit" U.S. gold coins to this country; and other world money markets. This flourishing traffic, first secretly uncovered by a congressional committee several years ago, involves large quantities of one and twenty dollar U.S. gold pieces. '' : . These coins, which are actually worth,. u}eir'. gold weight, include many with mint ,'dates,.; putting them in the category of rare and valuable collectors' items. Striking evidence of. this has been uncovered by the discovery of numerous gold "counterfeits" in the stocks of coin dealers, U.S. and Swiss banks, and money markets in the Caribbean and t h e Middle East. These coins are so perfectly minted that in most nstances they have to be examined and chemically analyzed; by Treasury experts before the coun- :erfeits are detected. , Intelligence authorities are certain that hundreds of thousands of these gold pieces are being minted in Russia and Red China. Communist agents sell the coins to obtain U.S. dollars for espionage and subversive operations. Evidence obtained by government sources indicates these spurious gold pieces are flooding the U.S. through three main channels. Following the Gold The most important entry point is New York, where Communist diplomats at the United Nations, their staffs and numerous couriers transport this gold in their diplomatic pouches and luggage past customs officials. Another major channel is via Red-r u 1 e d Cuba and thence through various Caribbean countries to Gulf ports in the U.S., ending up in New York. Refugees a,nd others coming from these countries are a big source of this illicit traffic. A third route, through which most of the Red Chinese-minted gold dollars come, runs from Vancouver, in British Columbia, down the West Coast to San Francisco and Los Angeles. The S i n o - Soviet - minted U. S. gold pieces sold to numismatists as "rare coins" bring. prices ranging from $10 to $30 for one dollars and and from $50 to $700 for twenty dollars. In a number of definitely established cases, Communist diplomats have - deposited gold coins in New York banks, subsequently drawing on these accounts in dol- ars. Treasury authorities are very reluctant to discuss their hush- hush investigation and its extensive ramifications. One official did admit the probe has beeir underway for "more than a year." He also acknowledged that Treasury Secretary Dillon has taken an unpublicized but "highly significant" measure to crack down on this illicit gold traffic. Dillon issued a formal order under which all foreign holders of gold coins are required to sell them. Also foreigners desiring to import or export gold coins must obtain a Treasury permit. Today*s Prayer Almighty God, infinite source of holiness, fountain of strength, grant us power to withstand and overcome every temptation. We are surrouded by many dangerous allurements. Strengthen and encourage us to hold steady for what we know to be right. P'inal- jy may we attain, through the merits of Jesus Christ, to that heavenly kingdom which has fullness of joy forever more. Amen. —Lyndon B. Phifer, Tallahassee, Fla., retired Methodist editor. <© 1963 by the Division of Christian Education, National Council of the Churches ot Christ In the U. S. A.) The One The "counterfeit" gold, coins are minutely exact reproductions of those minted by the' government. The; $1 piece, is "about the size of a dime, and the $20 coin the size of a half dollar. The tell-tale flaw in the Sino- Soviet-mintecl coins is ironically their gold content. The "counterfeit" coins contain slightly, more gold than the U.S. pieces. \ This time lapse spotlights one of the key mysteries surrounding the government's'.Investigation' — why the' Treasury has moved so slowly and why< the, Secret Service made no arests. These moot questions are still unanswered. U.S. authorities estimate Russia's gold supply at between $30$50 billion. This'includes Spain's gold reserve which the Soviet carried off during the civil war. More Hot Money Swiss banks are planning to scrap their "gentlemen's .agreements" to discourage the influx of "hot mo n e y." The banks agreed to do this in 19GO. Under their anti-hot-money pacts? with Switzerland's Central Ban k, the banks banned the purchase of stock on foreign accounts a n d paid no interest on "hot money" deposited by foreigners, T h e agreements, which expire in August, were designed ''primarily to prevent foreign funds from flooding the Swiss stock market. The Swiss government now believes that threat is over, and the outside money is needed to perk up a skidding market. . . .The U.S. is expanding its military traffic through Antwerp and Rotterdam to shift supply lines away from France within t wo years.
