mm ALTON TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, AtJCJtM 3,19G3 Fi/t Editorial What Is a Sheriffs Duty? Most voters who elected" Sheriff Barney Pwundoff as well as those ivho voted against him will be surprised to kndW that someone Itt the county expects him not to do his duty, A group of tavern operators now are seeking arl injunction against the sheriff to restrain him from having his dcputie's, frequent their places. The deputies, it seems, liiv* been hiakitig due observations, questioning youths of doubtful age, and in some cases making arrests. The tavern operators call this harassment. The challenge, of course, can be expected to raise some fine points of law: ^Phen is a sheriff following his oath to enforce^ the state's and county's laws and wnonis he harassing people? Just how public is a tavern? If it's a place where a man can blow his paycheck, and get drunk enough to go home and beat up his wife, is it public enough for the sheriff and his deputies to frequent in search for possible law violations and violators? If harassment is alleged, what is harassment? Must there be an element of intent, or can any law enforcement officer be accused in connection with enthusiastic attention to duty? Agreed At last Israel and the United Arab Republic have agreed on something. Both have missile capabilities of delivering a nuclear weapon, and at tsast Israel is nearing capability of a nuclear bomb. These instruments might be sufficient for their own fighting, and that's largely what they're interested in. The rest of the world can go hang, But these two have dropped their mutual accusations of trying to develop atomic weapons long enough to announce both will drop further tests above ground and under water — in conformity with the treaty now brewing between the United States, Russia, and Great Britain. The Israeli government announced its intention of joining the western nations in the treaty Wednesday; Abdcl Gamel Nasser's government had announced its plans Sunday. Maybe peace will come from this part of the world yet. UN Problem in Far East A new and important function of the United Nations is about to unfold. Countries of the far southwest are conferring this week on the possibilities of an alliance. They have indicated strong agreement in many directions. But, as could have been expected, Indonesian President Sukarno has thrown up a barrier — a barrier which may yet be overcome. The three nations — Malaya, the Philippines, and Indonesia — are discussing, in general, their efforts to make the three "a factor to be reckoned with in shaping the destiny of mankind." And when one realizes that President Sukarno's nation, alone, contains a population of 100 million, you can understand their feeling they should have an organized voice. But an effort to establish a union of the «•>!-* A Time for Dispatch Governor Kerner has assured through a spokesman that he does not intend to take the entire 30 days allotted him for choosing a 10-man commission to redistrict the state for election of General Assembly members. He is to be commended for his promise of dispatch. And for most part the two parties' central committees are to be commended for the type of selections they have made as a 20- man pool for the governor's 10-man choice. The Republicans, for instance, have nominated former Governor William 'Stratton, who provided prime leadership toward adoption of the constitutional redistricting amendment, now on the books. This article requires redistricting every 10 years based on the latest United States census figures. Perhaps top man on the Democratic group is Ivan Elliott Sr., who made a praiseworthy record as attorney general for the state. Many of the nominees are industrialists, business, and community leaders who can be expected to throw aside factional jealousies and make an impartial draft of the redistricting program. The Republicans avoided entirely selection of legislators, but the Democrats did take some of theirs from the General Assembly. Notable was selection of Rep. Paul Powell, former Speaker of the House. We hope the governor can complete his appointment of the commission quickly. And we hope the commission can proceed with speed and dispatch to accomplish its task. Voters can well be in a state of extreme British territories of Singapore, North Borneo, and Sarawak with the sovereign state of Malaya, under a long discussed plan, into a new nation, Malaysia, has aroused Sukarno's objections. This, too, was up for discussion at the conference. Sukarno has vowed to wreck the Malaysia merger plan. He demands that it be submitted to voters of Sarawak and British North Borneo at referendum. Cause of his objection is treaties with Britain that would permit her to enlarge military establishments there after the merger. So the group of southwestern nations have agreed to call upon United Nations Secretary General U Thant to conduct the. elections, as Sukarno's military authorities call upon the Borneo residents to be ready for an emergency. anxiety until this work is accomplished and accepted. Until then, we can all run the risk of an almost insurmountable mess at the polls in 1964 attendant upon the necessity to elect our entire legislature on an at-large basis rather than from districts. In the process, Chicago and Cook county could easily take control of the state. «• >[• * it" * Trade 'Egg'? Have 'all our good international resolutions on foreign trade "chickened out"? The United States is preparing to launch retaliatory action against the European Economic Community for tariff increases that have blocked nearly all of our poultry trade to West Germany, The high tariff on chickens is regarded as a test case of the community's intentions toward us. This country estimates the losses in chicken sales to West Germany will run close to $46 million a year. Only Germany is important in the poultry matter because none of the other nations involved imported much of it from this country. Duties under the Common Market plan against our poultry have the effect of raising its price above chickens produced by other countries in the Common Market, thereby freezing us out of the area. Our now large market here for German made automobiles should help our leverage. Anyway, it's sure a lot of fuss over a few feathers. Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round In-Laws Fall Out Over Test Ban Dimming Her Lights WASHINGTON — Tlie Russians don't know it but they have caused a family feud between two of the most distinguished brothers- in-law in Washington. Senator Stuart Symington, the Missouri Democrat, isn't speaking to his brother-in-law, former ambassador James Wadsworth. Reason is: The test ban talks and whether you can trust the Russians. Senator Symington, the handsome former secretary of the Air- force who did such an excellent job in breaking the Russian blockade around Berlin, still remembers that day, claims the only answer to the Russians is the diplomatic straight arm and force. His brother in law "Jerry" Wadsworth, a staunch Republi can, who served under Eisenhower as U.S. delegate to the United Nations and American envoy to the Geneva disarmament talks, lias come to know the Russians, He sees a difference between Russian tactics under Stalin at the time of the Berlin blockade and Russian tactics under Khrushchev today. gjgnificantly, Wadsworth now heads an important new commit* tee of American citizens including many Republicans to support the Pemocmtic president regarding w end of nuclear testing. On the <pnmUJee are two former Ei- senjhpwer cabinet members, Marion" FQlsom, former secretary of HgW and now head of Eastman Kgdjsjkj together with Arthur MlBMBlBB, |lS9'|94;roSP of HEW and now president of the University of Oregon. They urge bipartisan non-political supper for Kennedy in straightening on difficult problems with S o v i e i Russia for peace. Bui the Democratic brother-in law of GOP Ambassador Wads worth is just as vigorously oppos ed. Mrs. Symington, very attrac live sister of "Jerry" Wadsworth is the daughter of a distinguished Republican, Jim Wadsworth, who served in the U.S. Senate from New York and later came back as a member of the House o: Representatives.

Who's Boss in New York The people of New York don't realize it, but John Bailey, t h e Democratic National chairman, was indirectly responsible for thn appointment of the latest federal judge for the Southern District of S'ew York: Charles Tenney. Bailey, on a tour of upstate York, made the remark that Mayor Robert Wagner was not he real boss of the Democratic Parly in New York. Mayor Wagner immediately hit Deception is the principal business of the liberal-communists, and they are experts. The prayer case in the Supreme Court is to the poinl—and a very sharp one. First atheist liberals sue for their "right" to prevent their children suffering the "abuse" of being required to sit during a public school prayer. This is a terrible suffering for an atheist and is represented to the court as race. Trade schools .. slale religion ;' whicn JS pro . prohibited by Ihe Constitution. Historically the U.S.A. wanted to avoid an official state religion such as Britain had at (he time of the Revolution. In short, t h e Founding Fathers wanted t h e Freedom of choice in religion. Tliis is a far cry from prohibiting a simple school prayer which can't even hurt an atheist in a population 99% per cent Christian. The half of one per cent atheist and others in the country must be protected from prayer. P e r- haps it makes them nervous to The Negro problem Is one that concerns us all, and It Is a difficult one and defies instantaneous solution. The elements thnt have thwarted the integration effort have been smoldering in the hearts of many people for a long time,'and the sudden demand by the Supreme Court to alter t h e human heart 1 and its prejudices overnight is impossible of achievement. It is a marvel, indeed, that the constant discrimination against the Negroes has been endured by them with so much patience and peace so many years, and it is greatly to their credit. The Communists specialize in fomenting discord between races. Much is said about the ignorance and immorality of the Negro. At whose door does the blame lie? We have denied them equal educational advantages, refused to employ them in lucrative jobs for the most part — in fact, only a small minority of Negroes, comparatively, are employed the year round. Idleness breeds many things, and few of them good. To give the Negro proper educational assistance would help considerably. The Negroes who wish to be teachers, scientiscs, doctors, lawyers, dentists, etc. should be permitted to attend schools for such specialized training, so they can iielp their should be open to them. It seems incredible, utterly ridiculous, and one might say pathetic, when a large university with hundreds of students fears contamination from a few Negroes desirous of higher education. There is a Greek proverb — "Know thyself." Only when we accomplish this, are we in a position to judge ourselves properly. We need to go a step farther and know-the other person too, if we are to judge him properly. The very prejudice some people have against the Negroes prevents them from actually getting acquainted sufficiently to judge their true characters. Virginius Dabney has written an article entitled: "Why Responsible Southerners Oppose Integration." (This article was condensed from Life by the Reader's Digest.) Mr. Dabney, editor of the Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch, is a Pulitzer Prize winner and a native Virginian. He was the first Southern editor to advocate desegregation on streetcars and buses, and he has been a leader in the effort to improve conditions for Negroes across the South. He states: "No argument against integrated schools carries greater weight with white Southerners than the prospect that education of the races together in the elementary and secondary schools will lead to ul- t i m a t e inter-racial amalgamation." Editor Dabney adds: "Although Southern whites are denounced for objecting to inter marriage with other races, Ne groes themselves sometimes oppose intermarriage with othei races. There is no question here of superiority or inferiority, bu rather of wanting to preserve the ethic and cultural heritage o one's o\ra race, and not having i diluted through commingling wit! a race of sharply contrasting background." This is the main objection o many Northerners, too, and con curred in by the more high-mind ed Negroes, we feel confident. I have always felt justly prouc pf America in absorbing various nationalities and cultures s< smoothly. However, our own Negro citizens, many of whom laic down their lives in recent Wars (World War I and II), certainl; have been deprived of their jus rights.

The Negro problem must be solved in a spiritual way, and we need a spiritual renaissance to accomplish it.

A major problem In this respect was the expensive dredging required to build the embankment. Mr. and Mrs. Alonzo Allen, 80 and 79 years old, and married 63 years died. They were buried at White Hall.

The Allen-Scott Report White House Tries to Block Probe WASHINGTON — The White House is in a big sweat over that little-noticed House Rules Committee proposal for a sweeping investigation of the government's multi-billion dollar research and development operations. Apparently fearful of embarrassing and politically painful disclosures, the White House is making strenuous undercover efforts to block the TNT-loaded probe. More than $14 billion a year of taxpayers' money is now being spent for research and development; approximately two-thirds in contracts to private industry; some 10 per cent in grants and contracts to universities and other non-profit organizations; and the remainder by government agencies and scientists. Busily aiding the White House's scuttling maneuvers are a half dozen powerful committee chairmen, spearheaded by Representative Carl Vinson, D-Ga., long-time head of the Armed Services Committee. Reason for this remarkable backstage alliance is the feeling of these influential chairmen that the proposed investigation by a ipecial "blue chip" committee would cut across their own jealously-prized jurisdictions and dig nto matters they consider reserved wholly for them. Other opposing committeemen are Representatives Harold Cooley, D-N.C., Agriculture Commit- ee; Thomas Morgan, D-Pa., Foreign Affairs Committee; George Miller, D-Calif., Science & Aeronautics Committee; Adam Clay- .on Powell, D-N.Y., Education & Labor Committee; William Dawson, D-I11,, Government Operations Committee. To aid in axing the "blue chip" probe, Representative Vinson has directed one of his Armed Services subcommittees to immediately launch an inquiry of Defense research. Representative Melvin Price, D-I11., chairman, plans to do that next week. Other members of his ;roup are Representatives Sam- uei Stratton, D-N.Y.; Otis Pike, D-N.Y.; Jeffrey Cohelan, D-Calif.; Frank Becker, D-N.Y.; Durward Hall, R-Mo., and Robert Stafford, R-Vt. What It's All About Representative Howard Smith, D-Va., veteran chairman ot the potent Rules Committee, proposed the sweeping research investigation without advance notice to House Democratic leaders. ft was a complete — and disturbing — surprise to them and the White House. Particularly as Smith's resolution was bipartisan, with both Republican and Democratic signers, as follows;: Representatives Carl Elliott, D-Ala., Richard Boiling, D-Mo., and Clarence Brown, R-0., one-time campaign manager of the late Senator Robert Taft. Speaker John McCormack, Mass., sought old Boiling and told him: "Your resolution has touched off a revolution. A half-dozen committee chairmen, whose committees have jurisdiction over agencies with huge research programs, are up-in-arms. They are girding to do battle against you. What's it all about?" "You'll have to ask Judge Smith," replied Boiling, "ft's his resolution, not mine. I signed it to find out what's going on. f've already heard from Carl Vinson. He told me he's going to fight Today's Prayer 0 God, make me aware that Thou art ever near. May I sense Thy presence in all creation: In bud and blade, in field and towering forest, and in every living thing. Let me find Thy warmth in the radiance of Die sun, Thy strength in the majesty of mountains, and Thy mystery in midnight stars. Help me never to feel alone, and turning to Thee in my hour of need, may I find Thee waiting in my heart; in Jests' name. Amen, Alfred Grant Walton, Brooklyn, N.Y., minister, Flatbush-Tompkins Congregational Church. (iD 1963 by the Division of Christian Education, National Council of the Churches of Christ In the U, S A ) us all the way." Smith explained to his committeemen that he decided a sweeping investigation was necessary after making a, private study of his own ot a few research projects and being "shocked" by what he had uncovered. In a 24- page speech he will deliver when his resolution is taken up in the House, Smith will particularly assail the Defense Department, National Aeronautics & Space Administration, U.S. Information Agency and the Disarmament Agency for "wasting millions of dollars" on useless research. » Under the Rules Committee proposal, the investigation would be made by a special five-member committee selected by Speaker McCormack. Smith's personal choice f o r probe chairman is Representative Elliott, Ala., rated as a moderate and on good terms with both sides of the issue. The resolution is certain of approval by the Rules Committee. Its fate in the full House is another matter. With the White House, Vinson and other important committee chairmen against the "blue chip" probe, its prospects are highly conjectural. House insiders give it only a 5050 chance. However, Republicans are expected to give it solid support. Why Wliilo House Worrit* Two top White House assistants are in charge of dishing out research grants and contracts running into millions. They are Ralph Dungan, member of the President's staff for many years, and Dr. Jerome Wlesner, science adviser to the President. Dungan usually has the final say on who gets what and how much. An illustration is the Institute of Defense Analysis, headed by Richard Blssell, one-time official of the Central Intelligence Agency who had a major hand in the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion. Since Bissell became connected with this Institute, it has received ?8 million }n Defense contracts. (® 1883. Tho Hall Syndicate, Inc.)
