W, fifty Srid the clly council have been asked to consider an available IbdaHon At 7th and Belle Stfeets, less than, a block sfluth of the proposed site of a new post office. Jri a letter to be referred to the couticll at its meeting next Wednesday, Civil Defense tolre tor A. 6; Ceuckef requests that the tth and Belle location or other suitable pfopertleg he In-* vestigated "so that Civil be* feftse may be able to house all its equipment at one place and be better prepared for handling emergencies." Presently Alton C-0 has headquarters at 4 E. Profit Sti and lacks housing there for rntich of its equipment. Deucker explains that for more than a year the C*t> commission has been seeking to find a building within its rental means where its bifffe^ garage, and warehouse could be suitably cotrtalfted. A survey group, he says, has examined a number of locations and now has found that there is att available, vacant business- type structure at 701 Belle that cbuld be adapted to its needs, Which include a training center. the building is owned by irby W. Wlnkler and might b£ had at a rent of about-$150 a month. The structure is "L" shaped and contains n garage on its 7th street side, with overhead doors, sufficient to house three trucks, two Jeepfi, attd!:« trliler. The Belle Street section has 25 by 50-foot space on two floots that would provide office space, and be usable for training quarters antf meetings, and some storage needs. Some months ago, after the city acquired the former Illinois Terminal passenger depot, south of Lincoln-Douglas square, its Use was proposed as a new C-D headquarter^ btit was found inadequate to meet, its needs.

(AP) for the limited nuclear test bftri treaty is a little like being ftgaJflst, sin. The Senate figures tfl aflpfovrf it. As of now the whole thing looks; cut and dried. When the Senate wrecked dent Wilson's treaty for pitting the United States In the Leagud' of Nations In 1919, there were «ev- oral reasons, political, persofial nnd this: "' .. { II meant abandoning this court* try's historic isolation. And ,the United States wasn't ready. It look another world wnr to do that; But. there are done of those dlf* fictilties in the nuclear lest treaty. This country has preached sohlR such agreement for years, tills doesn't mean Ihere arc not somij problems. But they arc not so, full of tiger's teeth as those of 19:19. Good evidence is the attitude of the Kennedy administration. it. shows no signs of anxiety about the outcome. Democrats and Republicans are expected to team up to provide the necessary two-thirds Senate vote after giving the treaty the full business with hearings and debate. President Kennedy arranged to send the treaty, signed last Monday with Russia and Britain, to the Senate today. There next Mon* day the Foreign Relations Committee begins two or three weeks of hearings. Debate on the Senate floor is expected to last about a week. Besides questioning those for and against, any skeptical senators in search of gimmicks can quiz administration officials " on every verb and comma. The ,administration says there are no gimmicks. Some senators in both parties have hemmed and hawed, about the position they will take.. The Joint Chiefs o£ Staff will leave little room for reservations if they give their blessing, as they probably will. . , . The treaty isn't complicated. It has an agreement and an out. It prohibits nuclear tests in the atmosphere; outer space and under the .sea. But it permits continued testing underground. Kennedy said this country will go on testing that way. So will the Russians, jfo doubt. This is the out: Any nation signing the agreement can cancel it by giving three months' notice. Any nation which cancels without good reason will have world opinion against it,'if that matters. It didn't to to the Russians in 19G1. That- year — after they, the Americans and British had .abstained voluntarily from testing for three years—the Russians suddenly announced they would: resume. But that was only a voluntary moratorium. It lacked the formal agreement of a treaty. The United States knew all this history when it signed the treaty Monday. The escape clause may be highly useful to the United States or Russia in a few years, if they need it. For instance, il one or the other gets fed up with testing by the French or Red Chinese, neither of whom will sign this treaty. True, the escape arrangeriietif might benefit either side which wanted to play sneaky. Jf^ For example: r ' If it takes six months to prepare for an above-ground test and, midway; in that time, the Russians give three months' notice of ir tion to resume testing, have a three months' starts <ui this country if it then wartB to resume, too. jj But this chance of duplicity Has to be weighed against some oj^jcr factors. The test ban not only will saye the world from some radioactive fallout but will be the first nuclear agreement by the United States and Russia since the war and after years of talking about how to take the first step. This is a first step, if else. It could lead to better < can-Soviet relations and eVensto more far-reaching agreements!,[al* though no one is betting on ;Jh; But to suggest the may have some vantage out of this agre to the disadvantage pf the $ States—is lo suggest AmdrYcan officials arc stupid. <. For the better purt of H generation, while the rest of tlioj world heard and watched their U^k and hair-splitting, the United 'States and Russia have rendered themselves self-conscious with their announced desire /or a tos,t ban agreement. The United States, therefore, Is in an awkward position to buck down now, particularly since lor three years, from 1958 to 196J, It voluntarily refrained from testing without any ugreeiiKUit at all.
