ALTON EVENING TUESDAY, AUGUST 13,1963 ~" Editorial Germany Sticking with Us Chancellor Adenauer's announcement that he is "satisfied" with United States guarantees and ready t6 sign the nuclear test ban treaty will be at the sarhe time a temporary mystery but a more permanent satisfaction to this country. It will remain a mystery for the time • being till nature of the guarantees made by «•: Secretary of State Rusk to persuade the old ''Chancellor are explained more fully. '•'•' Mote particularly, though, it will bo a satisfaction because it makes our own position • in the western world that much more certain. French President Charles DeGaullc's rc- •'• cent contrariness over many matters involving the sUnited States, and his close recent • relations with Germany, make Chancellor , .Adenauer's pronouncement at the moment ;.' highly important. ,•»• It makes that much less likely a split among the principal nations of the North American Treaty Organization. Further, it indicates to that degree less of ,1 pull by the French president in his attempt to drag Eur- ope into an orbit around France and out of .1 larger and stronger world organization including Great Britain and the United States. DeGaulle could have been expected to meet with some success in playing upon the Ic.irs of Germany that signing of the nuclear pact would force the Adenauer government into later conferences over nonaggression and disarmament where liast Germany would be represented — and possibly recognized. Apparently Secretary Rusk and Britain have some kind of assurance that their own formulae for getting around that threat of this situation will work out. The guarantee may apply to our willingness to stop short, even to the point of jeopardizing the outcome of these later conferences, if that is necessary in order to protect West Germany. Some discussion already has been brought to light in which Russia has agreed to take up pure geographical principles and lines, and omit political identities. In other worlds, East Germany would be discussed as an area rather truii as ,1 nation or government to be recognized. ; Hot Line 9 for Cheddi and Fidel? You just can't keep up with this guy Castro. Even his followers can't. Over the weekend he was quoted as telling his Cuban subjects, particularly his bureaucrat leaders, that what was needed on the little island was some good oldfashioncd capitalistic accomplishment to take the place ot the red tape that apparently lias things pretty- well snarled there. Meanwhile, one of Fidel's second rate imitators seems one step or two behind him. British Guinea's wouldbe dictator, Prime Minister Cheddi Jagan, took a jab at this country, charging us with interfering with his internal affairs. Jagan, of course, would always assure us he had no eye on the internal affairs of his neighboring Latin American countries if he could get his political feet under him and take over. One part of his diatribe is particularly amusing, in view of what his pal Fidel already had been saying about the need for less red tape and more capitalistic incentive. "It K," said Cheddi, "all too clear the United States will only support a democratic government if it favors the classic enterprise system." He added a bit of particularizing: "Efforts to destroy my elected government and more recently to get the constitution suspended or to introduce an electoral system which puts my government and its supporters at a disadvantage are tending to create a revolutionary situation." The very idea! Maybe we'll get a Russian-Red Chinese propaganda battle going between Cheddi and Fidel yet. David Lawrence Trade Unions Are a Form of Exclusion WASHINGTON — It may be wondered whether the many clergymen and church-organization leaders who are publicly urging their congregations to participate In the Aug. 28 "demonstration" here would help to organize n similar protest if they fully understood the gross dlscrlmina-! tion which is sanctioned by fed-' ernl law today as between work-' ers.

We've lost one' to our country on a permanent basis — and are prouder. Sebastian Filippone, a reporter in whom we have taken much pride in the past for his performances with difficult subjects, has left us for a permanent position with Uncle Sam — in his Department of Agriculture. \Ve hope Mr. Filippone will be able to get the Ag department straightened out on certain things in their public relations department which have irritated us in the past. Of particular abrasive value has been the assumption that all citizens know the full alphabet code for all the department's divisions, subdivisions, and programs. All their releases we have been receiving at local level contain only the abbreviations, and we have had to issue orders around the place that these titles must be translated the first time they appear in each story. Anyway, we've asked "Fil" to see what he can do about correcting these practices at their source — Washington, D. C. And we are proud he can be of service to our government in his new job which he undertook Monday. Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Teenagers Target of Smut Peddlers EDITOR'S NOTE: Drew Pearson has gone abroad to interview world leaders and report on the prospects for peace. The Washington scene is covered by his associate, Jack Anderson. WASHINGTON — Sex and smut peddlers are now offering the : send their photos and tell us about their careers or the careers they'd like to have.

Sex Lists thai matter, anyone who! ion's wishes or face a ruinous strike. Each employe, however, presumably has "equal rights" under the Constitution along with other citizens. He is supposed to be immune from punishment if he chooses to reject someone else's beliefs. But where there is a union involved he soon discov- want employment closed to any-1 favorably for the ratification of body except union members or|the lost-ban treaty.

This treaty will surely join the other 50-odd treaties that Russia has scrapped when it suited her to do so. Not only that, what does it accomplish? What does it guarantee? There is no penalty attached should one of the nations ers that he must abandon his convictions as tue price of a job in free America. So, in this instance, at least, "equal rights" is a misnomer. It| is a form of discrimination and, in theory, is just as reprehensible as an attempt to discriminate between citizens because of race or creed or color. In U.S. Law It will come as a surprise to many people to learn that the authority for the discrimination is written in the federal statutes. It was not in the original Wagner Labor Relations Act, but, in 1947, this was amended by what aecame known as the Toft-Hartley Act. It legalized what is called the "union shop." This correspondent incurred criticism from Republican leaders of the Senate at the time for pointing out the gravity of this aberration from the equal-rights doctrine. The House of Representatives did not favor such a provision, but in the final conference the Senate amendment was accepted. For many years decide to resume testing. Of what significance is it to have 50 non-nuclear nations sign I such a paper? They can't break the treaty. They have no nuclear development program. They have no veto power. Why must Russia always hold the trump card? She has the right to laugh up her national sleeve at our tough talk and-soft actions. We need a return to Teddy Roosevelt's adage: "Talk soft and carry a big stick." We seem to have lost our "stick" in Yalta. Today, we shake our national fist, and like the bully on the street, run like a scared rabbit at the first sign of danger. Only DeGaulle has the courage to call a spade a spade, and we seem destined to dig our national grave with it. CELESTIA BRANDENBURG Rte. 1, Godfrey Man Is the Problem In the current world situation I the problems facing democracy we owe it to ourselves to encourage any movement that smacks of a climate for peace — to build up a spirit of co-existence with other nations as far as possible. Above all, alone in human history, our tradition of freedom is based on the belief that all men must share its benefits, based only in Justice. Many of us view with seeming indifference some with alarm now efforts names and addresses of unsus-|has ever attended school, sub- peeling teenage girls to any pervert with the price. Although the names are copied from innocent lists, the buyers are encouraged to believe that the girls volunteered their names and are looking for "fast company." Alarmed and anguished parents, whose daughters have suddenly been deluged with foul mail, have appealed to the Justice department and the Post Office without results. ., The federal laws apparently aren't broad enough to deal with the offenders. - However, Connecticut Sen. .Tom Dodd has ordered his Senate juvenile delinquency subcommittee to investigate the racket. , He has promised to introduce whatever new legislation may be required. The "pornographic gangsters," . as Dodd calls them, often pick up names by advertising for pen pals in reputable teen magazines. Another technique is to appeal •to starry-eyed girls who long to break into the movies. A typical j 'come-on, clipped from a fan magazine by Senate investigators, urges: "Photos wanted for publication — amateur or professional models, show girls, lady wrestlers and all young girls are invited to Alton Evening Telegraph Published Dally by Alton Telegraph Printing Company P.

The traffic in names and addresses from all sources has become a thriving business. Young, innocent girls may end up in a variety of sex lists. For a $2 fee, any adolescent or pervert can obtain names and addresses of girls in any age group, short girls, tall girls, single girls, Catholic girls, college girls, redheads, brunettes, or blondes. The lists are offered by localities, nationalities, and occupation. Examples: "Chicago girls, 17-25"; "50 Hawaiian and Oriental girls, 13-30"; "100 nurses, all ages"; "50 beauty contest winners." The lists come segregated or integrated: "White men w h o write colored ladies" or "Colored ladies who write white men." Special lists for any area will be made up on request. One peddler advertises: "We have 10,000 teen addresses and can make a list for your area." .ists of young boys' names also are available.

A group of parents, writing to Attorney General Robert Kennedy, summed up the problem in these urgent words: "It is not necessary to go into complete delail as to the dangers Involved when the names ol innocent girls are placed in the hand; of perverts who have been misled in their thinking that they have lengthy lists of names of promiscuous young girls. If evei preventive methods were to be employed in the field of crime control, this is certainly the in stance." for the Dogs The army inspector general is investigating complaints tlia used official $450-an-hour computers to trace the pedigrees of dogs. The Colonel is chief of t h e strategy and tactics analysis group, more simply known as STAG, which runs war games with computers. He is also a dog fancier who owns four prize-winning Irish Volfhounds. Not long ago he re- urned with a wolfhound pup rom an official trip to England. His subordinates have told his column that, in between war ;arnes, Col. Dequoy has put the computers to work grinding out dog data. Their statements have jeen repeated to the inspector general. Although the Colonel acknow- edged his interest in dogs and jedigrees, he told this column hat he had been ordered by his superiors to make no comment. He added only that he had done 'nothing improper." It remains to be seen whether he will end up in Ihe dog house. GDI' and Negroes The political strategists at the Republican National Committee, vho are looking South for votes these days, are ignoring t h e advice of the Negroes on their own staff. The GOP'S top strategist, legal counsel Grant Reynolds, has been frozen out of the policy- naking councils. He was excluded from the recent national committee session n Denver and the governors' conference in Miami, although civil rights was the hottest issue at 3oth meetings. Indeed, his advice on civil rights is no longer sought. It looks as if the party of Abra- lam Lincoln may not even bother to court the Negro voters in the 1964 presidential election.

Ray McKay Wake Forest, N.C., professor of preaching, Southeastern Baptist Seminary, have been made to abolish the discrimination, which really amounts to compulsory unionization. Congress, with a bit of guilty feeling, did declare in the same law that, if a state at any time wanted to nullify the discrimination, it could pass a law barring the effectiveness of the federal law's provision for compulsory unionization in that state. Sever- ial states have passed statutes known as "right to work" laws. They outlaw the discrimination in hiring, but a majority of the states have failed to act. Congress has not made "equal rights" discretionary with the states in any other field. For all practical purposes, the discrimination is generally in effect in populous states and hence applies in almost all the major industries. Millions of American citizens are discriminated against and must be deprived of good jobs and are compelled to seek other employment unless they are willing to accept the doctrine of trade unionism. The discrimination can be removed by repeal of the provision in the federal law iiid thus can be applied uni- iormly. Must Suppress Beliefs The argument usually made is hat the trade union carries on legotiations in collective bargain- ng and achieves wage and other benefits for all employes. In some instances, there have been arrangements whereby employes say a certain fee to cover such expenses and are not obliged to join a union. But the fact remains :hat, under federal law, a worker must suppress his beliefs and accept the dictation of another group of citizens as the only way lie can get or keep a certain job, This violation of the "equa rights" doctrine now has been in effect 16 years, but there doesn't seem to have been any protes from the so-called "liberals" — inside or outside the churches — against the flagrant discrimination involved. 1B63.

Allen-Scott Report Want 'Hard Look' at Disarmament WASHINGTON - Key members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which is considering the nuclear test ban treaty, are demanding they have the opportunity to "take a hard look" at far-reaching disarmament proposals circulating in t top levels of the Kennedy administration. These "second, third, and fourth step" proposals, some of which already have been discussed with the Kremlin, range from a "pay- as-you-go" disarmament inspection plan to increased trade and aid in improving the Soviet's dragging agriculture. Assistant Defense Secretary Eugene Ghiron Fubini, holding down one of the most security- sensitive jobs in the Pentagon, is advocating the "pay-as-you-go" disarmament inspection project. Propounded as a concept to break the protracted inspection stalemate, under Fubini's unique proposal the U.S. would pay Russia a fee of from $3 million to $30 million for the right to inspect suspected violations of a nuclear test ban or disarmament agreement. Russia would do the same in instances where it sought inspections. Neither country'would pay anything in the event a violation was uncovered. Fubini, who recently admitted to the Armed Services Committee that,.he had been a dues- paying member of a Fascist organization while a student in Italy, discussed his ingenious inspection proposal at a meeting with government and non-government scientists. "Can we create an environment for inspection (with t h e Russians)," he said. "I don't know, but perhaps we can at least cut down the size of the problem by establishing a procedure whereby both countries go into a second strike military posture. Then, if we limit inspections to the condition of second strike.pos- ture, and make inspections of a self-limiting, pay-as-you-go basis, we have begun to balance trust with practicality. •> • • "Under an unlimited inspection proposal," the Pentagon official continued, "we propose that every time we inspect, we pay the Russians a fixed fee — say, from $3 million to $30 million, depending on the type and depth of inspection — and that they do the same to inspect us. Neither would pay anything lor an inspection which turned up an arms control violation." As civilian head of the super- secret National Security Agency, Fubini is directly in charge of the government's highly classified communications-intelligence systems. Also, he is one of seven officials in the so-called "permissive link" thai controls the firing of nuclear weapons. This group includes the President and the officers in actual possession of these cataclysmic warheads. Helping Russia On Agriculture Secretary Orville Freeman's recent trip to Moscow, he discussed with Khrushchev the possibility of U.S. aid to improve the Soviet's long- bumbling agriculture. Khrushchev replied as if .he had expected to get such an offer ol help. He stressed particularly that Russia now has the money to buy whatever the U.S. is willing to sell. "We are going to divert money from arms to agriculture," the Kremlin ruler told Freeman. "We are going to increase t h e proportion of capital investment in agriculture. We have t h e money to buy from you. We need fertilizer plants; we need livestock feed mixing plants. You have the plants. If you want to sell them, we will buy them. We already have contacts with your businessmen and they want to sell. All that is needed is the approval of your government." Freeman promised to cable President Kennedy al once recommending .that such trade negotiations be opened without delay. U.S. Policy In Freeman's "mission to Moscow," he was carrying out one phase of administration disarmament policy as outlined in an Arms Control and Disarmament Agency study being circulated, by the White House. Prepared by the Institute of Defense Analyses, headed by Richard Bissell, one-time official of the Central Intelligence Agency who had a major hand in the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion, this backstage document pro pounds the following: "The U.S. should be prepared to reduce its restrictions on trade with the Soviet Union. "The possibility of U.S. assistance in the development of Soviet agriculture should be explored.
