ALf6N'EVENING , Atfi?tfe* it Editorial 4» Same Rules for All Now Long 4nd often repeated complaints of Madison County tavern operators that existing, closing hours place them at disadvantage in competition they must meet-may be ou their way out. The dramshop operators have pointed out that tavern hours in cities and Villages in the south end of the courity are much longer than those established by county regulation. The cry has grown especially loud during Sheriff Barney Fraundorf's successful campaign to obtain observance of the hours regulations. These city and village hours do vary, though in recent years one or two have moved tow-ard matching them up with the county's Tlie new relief is developing over the St. Clair county line, where the county board has eliminated a special $600-a-year night club license permitting •) a.m. closing hour. Tavern closing hours in St. Clair now will . become 1 a.m. week days and 2 a.m. Sundays. The St. Clair night club special license and hours have been cited often by Madison county operators both in and outside of incorporated areas as. a strong influence in whatever deviation was taken from the 1 and 2 a.m. closing hours. The way therefore should be open to obtain greater uniformity in the cities and villages in Madison county clustered about the St. Clair countv line. Some down that way already have chopped down on the hours. It was costing them too much to extend adequate police protection so late at night. ***** Need for Stability Unfamiliarity with a technical rule of the state division of highways has cost the city delay in -ts street improvement program, and. more embarrassing, a longer wait for completion of the .Central avenue washout. It is the price we pay for frequent turnover in our professional municipal staff. City Public Works Director Paul Lenz has proven himself a sincere, well-schooled, anJ intelligent public servant. The requirement that the city provide the stale semi-annually with a schedule of public works pay scales was something that sneaked up on liis blind side as a relatively new man in the position — after our big turnover during the past year. Meanwhile the state is holding up approval of our summer work program. The city should-sct itself to retain as long as possible the services of the men who arc experienced in their work. Municipal affairs have simply gotten beyond the stage when new men can quickly pick up full knowledge of them. So There's the Troika Again You 'could have expected it in a deal with Russia. Take a look at paragraph 2 of Article II in that nuclear test -ban pact we signed Monday. It says: "Any amendment to this treaty must be approyed by a majority of the votes of all parties to this treaty, including the votes of all the original parties." There are three "original parties" to the treaty — the United States, Great Britain, and Russia. If the United States, or Britain, or Russia votes -against any future amendment offered to the treaty, no matter what the vote of other parties or how many others ha*ve signed the treaty, that vote "No" constitutes a veto. It's like every other form of world government the Russians have a finger in. So we've done it again. Of course Paragraph 2 of Article IV gives each party the right to withdraw from the treaty "if it decides that extraordinary events, related to the subject matter of the treaty, have jeopardized the supreme interest of its country. So we have the choice: If: the United States, or Britain, or Russia decides something in the treaty is injurious to its interests at the moment, it can withdraw from the pact without being accused before the court of world opinion of breaking it. So for that matter, can any other nation becoming a party to the treaty. Only the big three have the veto power. Is it better,, then, for any of these three original signatories to pick up the marbles and go home if it doesn't like what's going on, or to be able to stay in the game and blow the whistle on everybody^else? The situation isn't ideal. But at least it expresses a realism that can hardly be charged as deceptive. The Big three have the nuclear power. They are the ones abandoning testing rights. The provision mars the picture of the treaty. But the world picture would be marred worse by the possibilities inherent in a deceptively assuring guarantee. *»*«•* In the Lead Illinois is pioneering in the field of providing its public schools with special incentive to encourage gifted children. Governor Kerner Tuesday signed a bill that will establish a $6.7 million program to support public schools in this direction. State Public Education Supt. Ray Page says the program will make Illinois a leader in this field. ' Whether we are a leader or whether we are just catching up with the others, a program which aims at salvaging and developing to the full children and young people endowed especially with intellectual capacity is completely worthwhile. \Ve have wholeheartedly supported our own school districts efforts in this direction, and we commend both Page for sponsoring the program and Gov. Kerner for signing it. The program need not and will not make intellectual snobs of its beneficiaries. In fact, the entire public will be beneficiaries if we get the advantage of the greater sum total of intellectual power thus cultivated. /)« Die/ Lawrence Khrushchev Comment Is \ Hypocritical WASHINGTON - Every line'in the treaty just signed in Moscow banning certain nuclear tests can be acclaimed and approved except OIie _ and that line contains the signature of the Soviet government headed by Premier Khrushchev. Hardly had the ink been dry on the treaty signed between the East and West, when the Soviet premier publicly reiterated the hypocrisy which runs through the policy and acts of the Moscow regime in various parts of the world, lie said: "We are deeply convinced of the advantages of socialism, communism, and do not conceal this conviction. No treaties and agreements between states can overcome the radical contradictions that exist between the two coexisting social systems. '-'But we, the Soviet people, firmly hold the position that social and class questions, the question of internal .social and political systems should be settled not through war between the states, but by the people of every country without interference from outside."

Hope for Hungary Soviet Premier Khrushchev has hinted to visitors that he will withdraw Soviet forces from Hungary. The Jast 'time he relaxed the Soviet grip on the country in 1956, freedom-hungry Hungarians made a bold bid for full independence. The resulting Hungarian uprising got Khrushchev into such hot water inside the Kremlin tliat rivals were encouraged to attempt his overthrow.

Has the United States been contradicting its professed policy of non-interference in the domestic affairs of other countries And hasn't Mr Khrushchev been insisting on-the right to interfere secretly not only in Africa but in Cuba and South America? Of what avail is any treaty, no matter how meritorious its professions of worthy purposes, if the signer is himself guilty of deception and carries on clandestinely an .active interference in the affairs of a country only 90 miles away from the southern coast of the United States? If Ambassador Stevenson's declarations about interference in South Africa's internal affairs are upheld by President Kennedy and the State Department, the American people at least will have the in the next election to repudiate the administration. But no such opportunity is given the people of the Soviet Union.

The President's ban on reconnaissance flights along the Soviet's borders is not considered too serious by the military for several reasons. They feel intelligence-can g e I along despite this restriction as long as information is obtained through the Samos and Ferret satellites now orbiting Russia.

"The President wants a test ban treaty signed, sealed and ratified by the Senate, and nothing is going to stop him if he can help it," this official told this column. "There is a great deal at slake in Ihis matter, at home as well as abroad, and the President is clamping down in every way he can tO'get what he wants."
