, ™" *, At-TON EVENING WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14^1963 Editorial Plan Commission Ready to Go The".'Southwestern Illinois Area Planning C&rniriisJibn has pushed itself off the ground. ,.It cffectedj Monday, a permanent organization by electing a complete slate of officers. Irt choosing former Assistant Supervisor Altori May of Alton as its chairman, it selected a public servant who has put up with tnatiy .indignities and displayed genuine the cause of rational planning in his long fight for zoning in Madison county. Certainly in this spot the commission has a welUseasoned veteran in the wars which efforts at intelligent planning of an area's physical uses and development can set off. ' Already the Commission has the suggestion of- Alton's Mayor P. W. Day, a member, that Madison-St, Clair county portions of the Great River Road, now rounding so speedily into form in this area, be the commission's first project. As longtime proponents of the river road who wept and bled inwardly many times over its lack of progress in former years, we welcome this display of the mayor's interest. We believe the commission can give much incentive to this project and its corollary — the completion of improvements to the Clark Bridge here. However, we realize as clearly as anyone that the commission's first big project must be a complete evaluation of the bi-county area's need in the way of planning and accom- 'plishment, and establishment of a major program assigning priority to all the single and grouped undertakings which may be found necessary. This we feel can be accomplished with a maximum of speed by the assortment of public leaders represented in the commission's membership. But the work must be guided by a professional who can devote his full time to the job. So appointment of .1 competent and inspired executive director must be raised high on the list of priorities. NVe believe the commission and the program deserve the fullest cooperation and support of every governmental agency and group interested in constructive development of the two counties. Long Overdue The present discussion in City Council over collection of delinquent fines deserves close attention from city officials. It brings up a problem we have some time urged be solved by more frequent attention to it. We have made several protests against the city's policy of permitting these minor fines to accumulate before effort is made to collect them. The fact that a few delinquents have allowed many to pile up is proof that at least these people should not be allowed further "credit" at City Hall. We hope the City Council will go into this problem thoroughly and undertake action that will be well designed to end this flouting of police and judicial authority at a local level. Never Easy id Lawrence Frowns on Applause For Nikita WASHINGTON — Because of a superficial acceptance of the emotional cry that world pence is a stop nearer by reason of the treaty limiting nuclear tests. Nikita Khrushchev and his Communist government are getting applause in many parts of the world, including this country. The dispntch- os from abroad give the impression that some kind of major! stop has been taken in the cause of humanity. Many Americans also, have been led to believe this, ! since President Kennedy has call! rti HIP treaty a "victory for man- jklnd." ! But the real news is to be found in the fragmentary disclosure of what goes on inside the totalitarian government in Moscow. A United Press International dispatch last Saturday night escaped genera! attention. Is it because Communist censorship, too, is ac-j copied now as "normal"? The news item didn't make m any front pages. But it contains the key to what's going on behind Hie Iron Curtain and tells more about the danger of war than do the hackneyed phrases of the treaty on nuclear testing. The dispatch says: "The Soviet Union took the first concrete step towards a planned reform of information media to^ day by setting up a state committee for the press with a little- known Communist official at its head. 'The THE LITTLE WOMAN "It's a fourteen-day diet—It doesn't say anything about NIGHTS." plan to tighten control Readers Forum Kennedy's Uiikiiidest Kut In the Telegraph of Aug. 10 11 billion a year, read of the administration's pro- thirds of the lot posal of a tax cut. Naturally, I looked for the part that would effect me most, and there it was: "The administration proposes to cut down itemized deductions on local taxes, interest, charity, medical, etc., by allowing only the amount in excess of 5 per cent of a taxpayer's income." Good old JFK. He's done it again, always right there Johnny on the spot. Mq admiration rose to a new high! For wouldn't this Those who doubt the feasibility of the proposed 20th-College crosstown traffic artery might be interested in reading the 25 Years Ago column from day to day. The 20th-College project was deemed unfeasible from the start. Nevertheless, in its accomplished form to date it has provided a new and attractive crosstown route, limited only by safety factors. It has gradually been improved and widened by years of annual working over, formidable as the original idea for the undertaking appeared. Alton needs a direct crosstown artery at just about the line followed by 20th-College. It needs such an improvement sorely if it is not to be strangled in its important east-west communications. It needs it also to handle more north-south traffic outflow which must develop when more of our Middletown streets are extended through present empty pastureland and quarry property. •Standing back and crying over the fact that grades are too steep at certain points will nor. solve the problem. The fact remains that traffic does travel these grades — and even steeper ones — in the city. We may not be able to put this project on schedule for immediate construction. But certainly we should take a hard look at what needs to be done and what it will cost so we can take a longer look at its feasibility from all aspects. If someone has a better solution for the same problem, the resultant discussion should bring it out. «•«•«•* * Tables Turned The task the Alton board of education now faces must be a pleasant one, indeed. For some years now the board has found it necessary to ask its constituents for more and more taxes to support a growing school population and an expanding need for more adequate forms of education as demands grow more elaborate upon graduates. Of late the requests have aroused hot debate; brought considerable criticism of the •** -U-I.-1.J- I" ' CI/U [over Russian newspapers and ; publishing houses has been in the i cut effect the greatest number ofj Still awaiting action by Governor Kcrner j works tor several months.

II annual salaries from $6,000 to $9,000 — but only if voters approved at a November referendum a proposal for annual sessions of the legislature. We would suggest strongly that Mr. Kerner veto this bill. We realize the added meetings of the legislature might make the job well worth the extra $3,000 a year. On the other hand, the work might be simplified to an extent that the raised salaries would be superfluous. More important than these conjectures, however, is the added argument the pay raise would give many voters to reject the sorely needed annual meetings of the legislature. We believe a salary raise tied in with the extra session would cost the proposal many votes. On the other hand, the legislators at the first double term of the General Assembly could well judge by experience how much needed and deserved the raise was — and enact it for,future session's.« The two issues should -be divorced by a veto of the pay raise. Such raises have always been to unpopular with the voters to risk the association. board, and, in all too many cases, defeats of tax raises they proposed. Now the board is on the other end of the club. The Illinois-Missouri Bi-State Development Agency has ordered virtual doubling of, school-year bus fares for youngsters, compared to the level here before the takeover. The school board voted Monday night to protest and oppose these increases. It should be pleasant for the board to find itself on the objecting end for once. One of the factors it seems to have missed in its discussion may well be the most difficult one. If the private bus fares continue to go up, public pressure for school bus transportation is bound to increase — though such expansion would doubtless be out of the question legally. The Alleii'Scott Report Joint Chiefs' Opposition Fades ideology conference of the Soviet Communist Party central Committee in June. WASHINGTON — President Kennedy personally induced the Joint Chiefs of Staff, with one exception, to switch from opposition to the nuclear test ban treaty to qualified support of it. This dramatic backstage about- face by the top military leaders was "brought about by the President's using both his personal prestige and great power as commander-in-chief. At this writing General Curtis LeMay, Air Chief of Staff, continues opposed to the pact. He is the only member of the Joint Chiefs adhering to the position all of them originally took in a policy paper they submitted to the Senate Armed Services Preparedness Subcommittee last month. General Maxwell P. Taylor, chairman, and General E a r 1 e Wheeler, Army Chief of Staff, changed their views after lengthy talks with the President. General Wheeler has some reservations, but now is supporting the President. Admiral David McDonald, who replaced Admiral Robert Andqr- gon as Chief of Naval Operations on Aug. 1, is for the treaty. Admiral Anderson, new U.S. Am bassador to Portugal, joined the other Joint Chiefs In their original disapproval of the treaty. White House Insiders Credit the President with winning over General Taylor and Wheeler by stressing two points: Their opposition would seriously damage U.S. prestige, and would react against n to their expressing any misgivings they had in response to congressional questioning — so long as they did not come out against the nuclear accord. Boxing Them In In the President's talks with the Joint Chiefs, he made much of the claim that a careful White House poll of the Senate h a d shown that well over two-thirds favor the treaty. On that ground, the President argued military opposition would only cause disunity and reduce the margin of senatorial approval. "If by some chance the Senate should fail to ratify this treaty," the President warned, "It would be the worst blow lo this country's prestige since the the military services. The President told that while he expected their support for Ihe pact, he ijad JIQ objec- Russians launched their Sputnik. It would be a diplomatic Pearl Harbor." Repeatedly the President assured the Joint Chiefs that he would not let the treaty undermine the country's military strength, pointing out he was firmly against cutting Ihe Defense department budget. In pounding home this argu- mont, the President opened one! , mooting with the J o i n t «Pf™ : < ind . 'The announcement of the new state committee was made i n two paragraphs in the government newspaper 'Izvestia,' edited by Premier Nikita Khrushchev's son- in-law, Alexei Adzhubei. . . . The June Central Committee meeting on ideology described the Russian press, radio, television and cinema as 'the assault forces of the ideological front.' . . . 'Under the reform plans, Moscow's 30 national and local newspapers were expected to be cut down sharply with the liquidation of specialized newspapers. But the 'Izvestia' announcement jave no indication whether this plan would be carried out. It was expected the new state committee on. the press would concern itself with raising the ideological content of Soviet newspapers and inculcating .Russian .leaders with Marxist-Leninist philosophy." It so happens that state committees for radio, televison and the movies have been functioning in Russia for some time. The addition of a state committee for the press, which has just been announced, merely completes the process of concentrated control of all communications media throughout the Soviet Union. Thus, a nation of 200,000,000 people, as well as the peoples in the other Communist-held countries in Eastern Europe, will not only continue to be deprived of much of the news of the rest of the world but will be given-heavy doses of Communist ideology every day in a massive "brainwashing" of the public. With only one political party permitted to have names on the ballot and with elections more or less perfunctory affairs, the dictatorship which holds sway in Moscow can at any moment persuade the people that the West is planning a war, that it is aggressive and may launch a surprise attack, and that hence the duty of the Soviets is to strike the "first blow." This is the heart of the peace- or-war issue, and no amount of i treaty-making to prevent a world conflict will be of avail if there is no free communication continuously between the peoples of the East and the West. To draw the Iron Curtain tighter than before and to erect walls and barriers to the Flow of Truth is to threaten world peace and to relegate to a position of unimportance all the agreements about nuclear testing in the air and in outer cut? Isn't the wage earner the one who pays the greatest amount of income tax into the Federal Treasury? Isn't the wage earner the greater majority of the buying public? But wait a minute! "The treasurer said this would bring in $2.3 more than two- total pick-up it want ed." So if the tax cut is going to pick up $2.3 billion here, Isn't someone going to get let down? Wouldn't this be "killing the goose that lays the golden egg"? Isn't this where I get a little tax relief wherewith each year by working a few days overtime I can pay my real estate taxes the following year? So I decided to write my Senator a letter. "Dear Senator: "I am confident of the greal effort you put forth in my behalf But would you please tell yoiu colleagues that I don't think ' can stand a tax cut at this time, Neither do I believe the nation's economy can stand one.

"If convincing evidence i s forthcoming that the Soviet has conducted secret nuclear tests or made a breakthrough that threatens our security," the President there is mutual distrust, both the East and the West will continue testing underground and will build bigger and deadlier missiles. The truism .that dictators and not people .make wars has long been obvious, and that's why the sad news which has just come from Moscow is worthy of the attention of free peoples everywhere. For apparently suppression of Truth is to be carried on even more comprehensively than before. There is in this little cause for rejoicing about a "victory for mankind." The intensification of the censorship inside Russia and the second anniversary of t h e building of the Berlin "wall" certainly give symbolic emphasis to the fact that Western governments have failed to speak out forthrightly for the cause of human freedom. This is really a do- feat for mankind. CROSSWORD By Eugene Sbefjer ITL 15 18 24- 30 33 2.1 4o 3fc> 13 31 n 20 35 50 53 27 4-1 to 44- 38. absorb knowledge 41. Swiss river 42.

The Madison County Board of Supervisors received plans for remodeling and enlarging the county sanatorium witli the aid of federal funds. Included were remodeling and enlargement of superintendent's residence for use as a nurses' home and erection of a new superintendent's quarters.

Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Kefauver, a Simple Man of Courage 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 — If President Kennedy should choose to expand his book, "Profiles in Courage," I suggest he write about the only man who ever bested him in politics, who took the vice presidential nomination away ' rrom him in 1956: the late, Sen.'Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn.). This Lincoln of a man, homespun, ungainly, often stood alone in the United States Senate. But he stood tall. Consider these flashbacks: Flashback, 1956 — Kefauver du.g deep into his own pocket, mortgaging his home and hiring out as a lecturer, to pay off old campaign bills. Yet as a presidential candidate in 1956, despite his campaign poverty, ho refused a .$10,DOO contribution with strings attached. All he had to do was condemn, in a public speech, a United Nations pronouncement against Is rael, This would be worth ?10,000 to his destitute campaign, he was told. But Kefauver, though pro- Israel, refused to bargain for his contributions. Flashback, 1954 — The late Senator Joe McCarthy threatened to attack Kefauver in Tennessee, painting him as a political pink, if Kefauver accepted an invitation to speak against McCar thy in Wisconsin. Estes took up the warning with his staff, listened silently as each one begged him not to pick a fight with McCarthy on the eve of the) Tennessee elections. He thfuiked them for their advice, then quietly announced his decision: "McCarthy is bad for t h e country. I reckon I'll have to say so." Minority of One n Flashback, 1954 — Stung by charges they were soft on communism, Democratic senators introduced a bill to outlaw the Communist Party and dared the Republicans to vote for it. This would have subjected people to prosecution because of their po- liucal beliefs, But the Republicans accepted the challenge and lined up unanimously with the Democrats for the bill. Only Kefauver, refusing to play politics, stood against it His anguished political advisers-warned that his stand would be misinterpreted back home, that he would be called a Red. "The least you can do," begged a friend, phoning from Tennessee, "is duck out on the vote." But the final rollcall was 81 to 1; Kefauver was the lone dissenter. (Later, the bill was pigeonholed after FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover joined Kefauver in warning Jthat it not only would be unconstitutional but would drive t h e Communists underground.) Flashback 1949 — Though a southerner, Kefauver managed to stir up the mighty wrath of the South by supporting civil rights legislation. When a resolution was offered to curb Senate fill- busters, Kefauver at once announced support for It. Thus the Senate was treated to the unusual spectacle of a senator speaking with southern accent against the filibuster. , Flashback, 1920 — Kefauver came out of the Tennessee hills to the University of Tennessee, a straw suitcase in one hand, a cap perched atop his head. Tightly drawn against his huge bulk was an ill-fitting suit, which seemed red in one light, green in another. Across his chest in a n e a t row were all the ribbons Estes had accumulated for perfect attendance at Sunday school. Clothes Disappear He was greeted by a cousin, Thomas Walker, who dutifully brought Kefauver into his fraternity. That alternating red-and- green, mail-order suit offended the eyes of Estes' fraternity brothers. (Not Jo mention his ycl- .Ipw„• shoes, .his 1 shrunken cap, his array of Sunday School pins.) Solemnly, they conspired to swipe Kefauver's colorful clothes and force him to,buy a new wardrobe. Thus began the mystery of the missing duds, which was to puzzle Estes throughout h i s, freshman year. He would return from class to find a pair of orange socks gone. A week later his shoes disappeared. Then his cap. And one night, while he slept, the miracle suit of two colors vanished into the night. From this unlikely beginning, L'sles Kefauver went on to become editor of the college news- 1 , paper, president of the junior class, president of the All-Students Club, president of the Southern Federation of College Students and a football star who earned, the affectionate nickname, "Old Ironsides." He continued on to Yale and; academic glory. Me became a corporation lawyer, a congressman, a senator and a, preslden-, tial candidate. : But he n-iver lost touch with the Tennessee hills, with the everyday people who muke up tha backbone of America. They are the ones now who will' miss him the most. ; «D 1863, Boll Syndicate, Inc.) ' , MIRROR OF YOUR MIND By JOSEPH WHITNEY , complished, and oxygen consumed under ordinary office noises.
