fir-' ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, AUGUST 5, 1963 Editorial New Effort to Save Lives New iifforts by the Illinois Division of Highways to get under control the slap happy atcidcrtt fatt At softie of our area's state highway intersection have been launched. Certainly they should be welcome to Al- t6nlafts, who Sometimes fear, for instance, to drive oft tne Godfrey Beltline because of its record". In that area the state has announced call- itlg bids for new signal lights of improved Specifications for the intersection with Rte. 140, with Alby street, with Washington avenue and with U. S. 67. We arc also due to get improved traffic regulations at State and Dclmar. Further improvements arc due for traffic lights at the Cottage Hills and Airline Drive Intersection, at Rte. Ill and 140 in Bcthalto, oft Rte. 159 in East Alton, at Rte. 1<9 and 111, \Vodd River, and Airline Drive and Airport Road. We hope the State's studies of these intersections will have been able to indicate designs for regulation that will improve safety of Our motorists in the area. We have a feeling that much of this safety, however, lies in the mind* of the drivers, who long ago welcomed particularly the Godfrey Beltline as .1 great little place to save big amounts of time. Both State and city should join minds in an effort to design more sefcty into some of the Beltline markings. At least one road leading off the Beltline is not marked at all, to such an extent that one hardly realizes it when the intersection thrusts itself upon one. Not even * street name marker gives the approaching motorist .1 target to slow down for. The result is undecisive driving by even the driver who knows his way relatively well. And indecisive driving is dangerous. The approach on the bcltline to Route 140 intersection also is vaguely indicated. We hope accident records after installation of the new devices will indicate greater effectiveness. Where the Real Inquiry's Needed Perhaps what really needs investigating in connection with the General Dynamics TFX plane contract award now becomes the manner in which the Senate Permanent Investigations Subcommittee has been making its investigations. Does it seek to determine the wisdom of the Department of Defense in awarding the contract to General Dynamics; is it trying to get a contract awarded to Boeing; or is it trying to "hang" something on somebody. We strongly suspect it's after weakening the structure now holding Secretary of Defense McNamara in position. But certainly the possibility of its aim to get the contract for Boeing should be looked into by another investigating committee or by the Attorney General. Currently the object of its mudslinging has been Secretary of the Navy Fred Korth, The object of attack is alleged conflict of interest on Korth's part. Korth had exerted influence in the Defense Department's decision to. award the contract to General Dynamics. Mr. Korth owned $160,000 in stock, about one sixteenth of the total shares issued, in the Continental National Bank of Ft. \Vorth, Tex., which was assigned $40,000 of a $200,000 credit pool arranged by the Chase Manhattan Bank of New York for General Dynamics to help finance a government contract. Twenty banks were involved in the revolving fund. Korth was president of the Ft. Worth bank at the time the loan was being arranged. In our opinion a $40,000 loan made by a Texas bank could very well get lost in the small credit files and never be given recognition by the president. Furthermore, need for this particular bank pool's help later was dissolved. The verbal efforts of Congressmen to blow this incident up into something the size of the now largely legendary Teapot Dome scandal is a disgrace to Congress, many of whose members are hiding far worse cases of interest conflict, themselves, behind Congressional courtesy. The reasons for the committee to go into the Korth relationship in this manner should lie investigated in detail. Congressional courtesy notwithstanding. * * » * » Not Perfect, but In a recently announced survey of Illinois Aid to Dependent Children cases, the federal government found but 4.9 per cent of them were chargeable with outright fraud. That perhaps is more than should have been, but it was nothing to compare to the violent conjectures which have been passed about. The government report showed further that while 27.7 per cent of the cases were adjudged overpaid, another 30.7 per cent were underpaid. One must consider that prompting of the inquiry derived from discovery that more than half the cases on ADC rolls in Washington, D. C. were completely ineligible. Now that the government has set up standards and procedures for checking this program, we can expect the amount of fraud to decrease, and the payment rates to become more closely regulated. Nevertheless, we still will continue questioning the standards which allow mothers to continue on the rolls while expanding their stock in trade — illegitimate children.

Today's Prayer When the brightness a n d j sid LntVrettce Kennedy Not Up on News, Apparently WASHINGTON — It might be wondered whether President Kennedy really has any time to read the newspapers or , If not, whether he is being told by his aides Just what is going on Iti connection with thp Negro and white "demonstrations" in different parts of the country. The impression conveyed by the President at his latest news con ference was that the racial "demonstrations" were petering out, when actually they have been spreading and their intensity hai :)ceti increasing. It may be, of course, as often happens In politics, that the tactics of the ad ministration are to "play down' what is occurring, but the newspapers are certainly printing the 'acts every day. The President at Ms news con- erence did not take exception to i statement that "It has seemed, ns the summer has progressed, (lie vigor or some of the fever has gone out 9f the Negro demonstra. ions that we had around the :ountry earlier in the year." Mr. <enrtedy was then questioned as o why this might have conle bout and what effect It might lave on legislation, and he relied: "I think it is partly because an awful lot of work is being done n the local communities by bi- acial groups, by responsible of- icials, and this is true North and South, East and West, partly be- ause I think the Negroes are ware that the Congress is con- idering legal remedies for some if the difficulties that they face, lartly because the responsible Negro leadership, I think, realizes tiat this is a long-drawn-out task o bring about, which requires obs, which requires education nd all the rest, and a quick dem- nstration in the street is not the mmediate answer. No Solution to Forget "But merely because the dem- nstrations have subsided, it oesn't seem to me—those of us vho are in a position of respon- ibility—does not mean that we hould go to sleep and forget the roblem, because that is no solu- 1011. So I think it may be a good, ling that the demonstrations, articularly in their extreme orm, are subsiding. I think in ome cases they were becoming elf-defeating, and particularly emonstrations that I have seen, hat I have read about recently, vhich seemed to me to be rather ringe actions. I thought they vere self-defeating. But I would lope that il there is a period of juiet, that we would use it and ot merely regard it as an end o the effort." But a careful examination of The New York Times, for exam>le, in the four days preceding he President's news conference if last Thursday, shows that on VIonday the first page contained headline which read, "Negroes o Push Picketing in City in Drive or Jobs—Demonstrations Due Tolay at Projects in Brooklyn, Queens and Harlem." On Tuesday morning, a headline on the first page of the "Times" read as follows: "Pickets -Arrested for Blocking Way to Mayor's Office." On another page, an article told how judge lectured eluding seven pleaded guilty to violating the law by their demonstrations on July 22. On another page, a dispatch from Boston reported the firsi clash in that city as a result o: a demonstration by both Negroes and whites. On Wednesday, The New York Times, on its front page, stated that there have been 691 arrests during July as a result of demonstrations in New York City. Thirty-one adults were arrested at a medical center in Brooklyn and 18 children were picked up while trying to block construction vehicles. A dispatch on the same day from Clarksdale, Miss., told of the arrest of 52 Negroes — including a number of juveniles — for parading without a permit. Near Riot On Thursday morning, on the first page of the New York Times was a headline reading. "Near- Riot Flares in Race Protest at Project Here — Pickets Hit and Kick Police in Brooklyn after Blocking Street — 22 Arrested — 3 More in Sit-in Are Ousted at City Hall." On the inside pages of the Times on the same day were articles telling of riots and! demonstrations. | On Friday morning, in the issue I following the President's press conference, a headline on the front page of the Times in the first column read as follows: "7 Pickets Seized for Blockading Governor's Door — Patrolman Is Mauled." In the second column THE LITTLE WOMAN a criminal court nine persons, in clergymen, who 'If we chip in and give him fifty cents maybe he'll get us a table." Readers Forum Too Much Laughing Apparently every one is happy because Premier Khrushchev is laughing. Pictures show him and Averell Harriman at the Olymp- c games together. They are both laughing at ception Mr. the diplomatic K gave for all re- the visitors (even the Reds). Khrushchev was laughing, Mr. Harriman laughingly remarked to some newsmen that he hoped to be home in time for the World Series. I for one am not happy. It's their funny way of laughing 1 object to. Let's not forget that Khrushchev laughed all the time he was building his so-called "shrimp docks" in Castro's Cuba, and I imagine iie went into hysteria when we withdrew our partial blockade and allowed untold thousands of his roops to remain in Cuba. When our President promised not to invade, I expect he shook like a bowlful of jelly. Averell Harriman is a past master at keeping people so "slap happy" that we don't know until It's too late what las happened. What is Harriman really doing n Moscow? The test ban agreement was a foregone conclusion day quelled Chicago's worst racial demonstrations in two years and white and Negro community eaders met in emergency sessions to try to calm south side racial unrest. "Forty-seven persons were ar- .•ested and four policemen were njured last night and early today in disturbances touched off by the move of two Negro families into predominantly white residential neighborhood. "Hundreds of white persons milled through the old Irish community, flinging rocks and bottles, taunting police who sought ;o disperse them, and waving crude posters reading: 'We Don't Want to Integrate.' Three blocks away, across a railroad viaduct that divides the predominantly white neighborhood from a Negro neighborhood, hundreds of Negroes gathered at an intersection and jeered Negro and white policemen who sought to disperse them. (© 1963, N.Y. Herald-Tribune, Inc.) before he left home. What the Soviets really want from us Is a very funny non-aggression treaty one that they can break any time they choose. Therefore they dan gle the test ban (without underground inspection) and now a possible summit meeting, with us making all the concessions. (When have they made any?) The spa between Moscow and Peking ii another laughing matter. They could have found no better way to test our naivete, and we've apparently fallen for it. Secretary Dean Rusk and a bi partisan committee will join Mr Harriman and Mr. Khrushchev in the finishing touches to wha looks like a non-aggression treaty This could cost us a lot of heart ache. For many years before the Hit ler Stalin pact in 1939, the Sovie Union waged war on Aclolph Hit ler, but when tilings got really tough, Molotov signed a treaty with Von Ribbentrop to save their own skins. Knowing that Russia does back down when things get tough, I'n amazed that Harriman would le 1 himself be maneuvered into a po sition where we need give any pound at all, especially since Russia and China are in their so called spat. President Kennedy has called for a new East-West commission to ease tension around the world and would promote "forum type discussions between U.S., Russia and Britain. This commission would be set up outside the UN but would keep that organization informed of its activities. I ask what would this avail us? They cannot handle Russia in the UN even to the extent of forcing hei to pay her share of the costs. How can another "new fad" commis sion or committee do the job. Isn't il about time we all stopped laughing and started striking a few blows for freedom? Is Averel Harriman the man for this job? I jolly-well think not. LUCY E.

East Alton'Wood River Community High School had applied for $3,47fJ.8G under the special state aid to needy high schools program.- Figures on communicable diseases in Illinois cities in 1B37 showed an 80 per cent decline in diphtheria cases here. But despite improvement in the infant martallty rate, Alton ranked 13th highest of 58 cities. Other diseases here included 226 cases of scarlet fever, one of smallpox, and 299 of syphilis. Clarence R. Graves was named senior vice commander of Allen Bevenue Post, American Legion. Fred C.

Western Cartridge Co. defeated International Shot Co. 6 to 4 to lorce a playoff in the Industrial Softball League An ordinance fo redtalricl the city into wards was being readied for introduction to the city council 'at Us first meeting Purpose of Ihe ordinance was to relievo the unbalanced ward situation resulting from tho annexation of Upper Alton In Iflil. Nine of the aldermen had attended a meeting at which ward line changes were outlined, and passage of the ordinance appeared assured. The new arrangement would set off Upper Alton as 7lh ward. It would leave 1st and 2nd wards unchanged, but completely rearrange the present 3d, 4th, Bfli, and 6th wards. Uedlstrictlng the city had been postponed in 1912 because there were three elections 111 that year, and it was believed any alterations would confuse voters. Since annexation, Upper Alton had been temporarily added to the old 7th ward. Plans for the annual Labor Day observance were outlined at a meeting of Trades A Labor Assembly committees in the W. F. Schneider barbershpp in Spauldlng Building. A parade was to be made a big feature of the day, and merchants and organizations friendly to labor were to furnish floats. An afternoon and evening picnic was to be held in Overath & Meyers Garden and speakers and entertainment features were to be provided. diaries Alexander of McCltirs Place, just east of the city, complained to authorities that he had been robbed on the Installment plan over a 4-day period. Friday, the cushion was taken from his buggy. Saturday, the two front wheels of the vehicle also disappeared. And Monday his horse was gone. William DeMonbreum and E. H.

Alton's ice supply was soon to be largely increased. Reconditioning of the ice-making plant of (lie former Illinois Packing Co. had been completed for its new owners, the Lucr Brothers, and was to turn out 30 tons of Ice a day. August Luer said the plant was scheduled to start operating Aug. 10. Members of the Park Commission set the spring of 1914 tor the construction of a wading pool in Rock Spring Park. Victor Riesel Says Castro's Target: 8 Million Indians PUNO, near Lake Titicaca, Peru: — A window-less mud hut, reeking of men and women and children and their cattle, ofttimes huddled together for warmth as the razor-edged wind and rain and hail come sweeping in from Bolivia and the lake, is as grim and bleak as the night side of the moon. There are tens of thousands of these aboriginal "homes." And each as target for the Castro intercontinental apparatus. In Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia here are 8 million such Indians — a mighty target Indeed. They <now no more about Communism nan they do about the .Wimbledon tennis matches. But they are istening to the promises of the Castro floating units here — and the Quechua and Aymara Indians are willing to live on promises. They have little else and nothing ;o lose. These Indians live outside the money economy. They eat meat once a year if they are lucky. Experts here tell me they have a ife expectancy ranging between 25 an 35 years of age. They live mostly on potatoes the size of a big strawberry. And this is 80 per uent of their diet. They kill their appetite by chew- ng coca leaves, the base for co- :iaine. An adult Indian chews en)Ugh each day to kill a dog. Then; ire records of experiments to prove this. Thus they work 12 and \A hours a day on the bleak soil rvithout actually realizing the passage of lime. This kills their spirit and half kills them. When some are lucky enough to land jobs on the haciendas, they insist on getting part of Jieir pay in coca leaves. They are clad in a combination of trousers, vest, shawl and poncho overall — and do not remove these garments until the "clothing" falls apart. Very few of them identify with their native land. They know only their own community and their own people. But the time will come, as in Bolivia where they gyrated to the mines, when they will insist on voting for their own destiny. To whom will they then — these eight million — swing their support? It's fascinating to look at nearby Bolivia. There the Indians back a bellicose chap by the name of Juan Lechin. He is the head of the "miners federation, leader of the central labor movement, vice president of the country and an ambassador all at the same time. Furthermore, the Bolivian' unions which he dominates' have a people's militia of their own. It is disciplined and heavily armed. Senor Lechin is not a Communist. But he is left of center and with the workers' militia as a base could take over the country in a showdown light, it is believed here. The basis of his strenght is amongst the Indians. In Bolivia there is no literacy requirement for voting.The political parties are identified by colors and each voter casts his ballot by associating the hue with the party of his choice. Here in Peru, literacy is a prerequisite for voting. So the Indians are not yet a factor. But they will be. 'More and more of their youngsters make their way into the more urban centers. Atid those who remain on the "altiplano" are being wooed by Castro's new agents. They are not yet sufficiently numerus to make trouble, but their tribe is increasing. But for some time now the Indians have been receiving aid and guidance from a group of outsiders ranging from the International Labor Organization (1LO) 16'the Society of Friends and the AFL-CIO. It was discovered that the basic yearning of an Indian — as Indeed the desire of all people — Is for a home of his osvn, tiny as it might be. So the ILO moved into this general area around Lake Titicaca. Its people began teaching the Indians how to bake bricks. And then how to make a small house. And that windows were necessary. And how to make frames for such windows. Gradually the made Indians learned how to construct a small building. Their new talents were then turned towards the construction of small shops and schools, for which the government begun supplying teachers. The shops and tiny factories began producing goods for exchange with other communities. A money economy developed. Transportation followed. The Indians were taught how to raise crops. Soon a credit system was .established. This is known as the Andean Indian Program, It covers but a few of the 8 million Indians. In three very tense areas on Lake Tilicnca's shores, this work has affected well over 100,000 of them. In all, some 200 communities have been reached, hut this is only the beginning. Meanwhile on the labor front, the middle-of-the-road National Federation of Peasant Workers (FENCAP) and the Peruvian Christian Trade Union Movement (MOSlCP) are being humissed by the Fldelislas. All this Is far off from the U.S. But there are jagged mountains, high plains and jungles — and many ambitious young men, all of whom want to use the handy terrain as the base from which to become new Castros^ (© 19G3, the Hall Syndicate, Inc.)
