rotm ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH FRIDAY, AUGUST 16,1963 Editorial Do-IfrYourself Traffic Relief How citizen? can help their community and themselves save money is being illustrated by the present wave of requests for on?- Sidc or for no parking and out-way traffic regulations, in certain areas of the city. Aiby street residents led the move with their request for one-side parking north of 16th street, where the pavement narrows to just A good wide two lanes for most of its length. Now the same group has apparently h.irl enough experience with tlic one-side parking to feel qualified for a request that all parking along the street be barred. And they have come in with a petition. Alby, no one needs to be reminded, is a "through" street. It bears a heavy load of north-south traffic, which has increased considerably since the Godfrey Beltline was completed. The city has been discussing a widening project on Alby. The parking ban can be expected to head tlm off if it works out without too much objection or too frequent vjoLitioiu developing .is the initial enthusiasm wears off. \Vith regard to this liter factor, the citv will want to observe closely any possible added growth of work for the police department in enforcement of these parking bans. The conception of conserving publicly financed street space for traffic rather than parking, especially in residential areas, is a logical otic. While the Alby streetcrs arc broadening out their proposals to effect both sides of the street, others living in areas of more localized traffic problems also have come m with cooperative proposals of one-way traffic regulations as well as one-side parking. The community and even broader areas can watch with deep interest as Alton experiment 1 ; with this solutions for a growing group of traffic problems. A Longer Breathing Spell Only time can tell — but'it seems the state legislature has a job to do on county zoning legislation at its next session. The sniping (as compared to snooping they lay to others) and potshbtting foes arc doing against the Madison county zoning program can hardly have a stabilizing effect on its administration. Only five months after the zoning ordinance was adopted — after subverting township hearings and turning them into chaos — the county board was called upon Wednesday to vote on rescinding the program. It voted to keep zoning for tlie time being. But now Assistant Supervisor Joseph Carrillo of Collinsville has announced he intends to re-introduce his resolution for zoning abolition. Apparently the plan is to maintain a program of harassment against board members between members with 3 view to wearing them down. Meanwhile, we can expect some open attacks on the honesty of the men connected with the xoning, mingled with charges of oppressive, dictatorial, and un-American type provision in the /oiling ordinance, itself. This procedure is typical of the chaos •which zoning foes introduced into township zoning hearings conducted as required by law, before original adoption of the ordinance. If residents of the county have objections to make against certain features of the ordinance, they should have the intellectual honesty to offer constructive suggestions for amendments. Meanwhile, we would strongly recom- nient that the Legislature be asked to amend the county zoning enabling statute to provide a definite trial period before rescinding action can be undertaken. David Lawrence Arguments On Test Ban Are Strange WASHINGTON - More puzzling lhan any of the words themselves in the pending treaty limiting nuclear tests are the strange arguments being made urging its| ratification. I • The joint chiefs of Staff, who | represent the military judgment [on which the security of the conn- jtry is customarily based, say frankly that they have had their doubts but that, on the whole, they now think the disadvantages in (ratifying the treaty are outweigh- jed by the advantages. They in- 'sist, however, that the United : States not only carry on a vigor- lous program of underground testing but that it stay ready on short I notice to resume atmospheric testing if the Soviets abrogate this treaty. All this is difficult for the average person to understand, and many members of Congress have wondered whether political pressure has been applied to persuade the joint chiefs to support t h e treaty. In fact, in a senate committee hearing this week, the question was asked if the joint chiefs responded to "pressure." This was emphatically denied.

In answer to Ben vine's challenge to prove that city manager- ism is a foreign concept of government run by left wing concepts, I direct attention to the Chance to Compare Too Pat Mayor Pro Tern Roy Geltz had some timely suggestions to make in connection with the new approach to the Dogtown problem Wednesday night. These should be helpful in keeping the city from going over its head in new complications under an approach put forward as one to avoid complications. Important in his amendment to Alderman Bowman's program were a hard look at probable costs, and an evaluation of the adequacy of housing to replace that which might be destroyed under Alderman Bowman's proposal. Alderman Bowman's proposal has the merit of envisioning a program which long had been put forward as a preferable alternate to urban renewal procedure as originally envisioned. The 'two programs now can be compared side by side as the council and the Board of Health proceed. ***** A Saving, too? Governor Kerner commented, in connection with announcement of a new and higher state employes' pay plan, that he hoped the program would enable Illinois to attract and keep competent workers in its corps. We hope so, too, and agree that competent stale workers have proper compensation due them the same as anyone else.

It accuses Russia of welshing on a promise to provide Peking with nuclear weapons and know-how under a promise made by Premier Khrushchev to President Eisenhower. We all know what happened between Ike and Khrushchev at Paris soon after that conference between the two and can figure for ourselves how long such a promise would be kept. The only conclusion we can see is that China and R,ussia expect us to forget these things and swallow the story of Moscow's swing west amid increasing disharmony with Peking. We agree with General Maxwell D. Taylor's statement before the Senate's Preparedness subcommittee Wednesday, in which he said top military leaders approved the current nuclear test ban treaty but added a recommendation that: "If we ratify this treaty, we must conduct a vigorous underground testing program and be ready on short notice to resume atmospheric testing. . . . Finally, we must not for a moment forget that militant communism remains committed to the destruction of our society." ever, that they hope this growing competency of the state" staff will result in the need for fewer workers — and eventually a saving in salaries to be reflected in lower overall expenditures and slower tax raises. Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round U. S. Bombers on Constant Watch EDITOR'S NOTE — Drew 1 Pearson today writes from Turkey on what the easing of the cold war could mean to an area where wars a r e spawned. ISTANBUL — If you want to see what cold war tensions mean and how one false move could plunge the world into war, take a look at the intricate defense system the United States h a s built up with its allies, Turkey and Greece, in this southern wing of NATO. This is an area, not 90 miles from Communist Territory as Cuba is from the United States, but only a few feet away. Along Greek and Turkish borders to the West, Communist Bulgaria is sep- erated by only a few strands of rusty barbed wire. Between Turkey and Soviet Armenia to the east, there is more rusty barbed wire. To this crucial territory a squadron of lighter bombers flies non-slop from I^angley Field, Virginia, every ninety days. The pilots don't know in advance who is going to make the flight. They are picked by surprise from crews already on the alert. They fuel three times in the air — over Bermuda, the Azores, and Spain— and then take up their vigil not far from the Soviet-Bulgarian borders. They are equipped will atomic weapons, and have prearranged targets deep inside Ru,s- sla. For four hours every they sit In their cockpits, always ready to take off. When one pilot has sat for Jour hours, -another takes his place. But night and qjay, these fighter bombers are on the alert.

"President Kennedy is hipped preventing any accidental var," explained one NATO official in a matter of fact way. Accidental War It requires two men to install lie bombs in the planes, and each nust receive separate coded message's. A third officer carries the niclear weapons to the planes. There was a time when nuclear weapons were so complicated that I took some time to put them to- ether and there was less likeli- lood thai some madman could touch off war. But today weapons mve become so refined and sini- ale that three men, acting on three separate orders, have the separate responsibility for nuclear war. blase. Furthermore. Neat- leaders have considered Eas these tensions an asset; for the cole war makes it easier to get foreign aid dollars from the U.S. Con grcss. Thus when I came to Turkey shortly after Eisenhower's Camp David talks with Khrushchex which eased the cold war, Turk ish officials were concerned ovei what would happen to their for eign aid funds. But this week when I asked Premier Ismet Inonu what he though of the test ban treaty, he replied: "I am happy that there is better understanding between tlv United States and Russia.

I3oll Syndicate, Inc.) lion indicates that in the back of hp minds of some senators is a eeling that the high military of- icers do not dare to incur dis- avor. Indeed, recently a chief of naval operations was not reappointed and, while it was denied hat he was punished for express- ng his views before Congress on controversial issue, the idea prevails that he did disagree with he administration and paid the penalty. Typical Campaign The campaign to get the treaty •atified is typical of what happens when a political issue is involved, but it is not characteris- ic of the kind of discussion that usually takes place when purely military matters are being considered. It is doubtful whether any high military man would venture ipenly to question the wisdom of 'atifying the nuclear-test treaty. Another puzzling development s the attitude ol the nuclear scientists. While a large number avor ratification, it is significant that Dr. Edward Teller, of- en referred to as the "father of he hydrogen bomb," is vehement n his opposition. Efforts are be- ng made by the administration o pooh-pooh his objections as of secondary importance, but his estimony — just published — has served to increase the doubts prevalent on Capitol Hill. Dr. Teller says that testing in Hie atmosphere is important in order to catch up with the techniques in which the Soviets are ahead of the United States. He d says that nuclear explosions in the air are the key to developing missile defenses. If the Soviets feel they are at an advantage, I' hey can threaten attack and gain political concessions by such a ihreat. They could invade small countries at will, knowing they would not be risking war with the United States. So, Dr. Teller insists, tests in the atmosphere and in outer space are absolutely essential to America's future safe ty- There is considerable speculation as to why the Moscow government reversed its previous decisions and suddenly decided to go ahead with a plan it had earlier rejected. It is suggested that the Soviet experts may be planning someday to mount a mock attack by, say, 500 missiles high over Russia and counter the attack with a display of their antimissile defense system. Dr. Teller thinks they might even invite American experts to watch the test. If the test happened to fail, the Russians would have lost only the treaty, but he thinks that, il the scheme worked, they would then be able to say: "Now, you see we have an excellent defense and can absorb any attack you can send against us. There is the proof. Now please do this and that, etc." On this point alone — inhibiting U.S. development of a missile defense — Dr. Teller feels t h e treaty is dangerous to the United States. MrNaninra's Statement Secretary of Defense McNamara, in his testimony before a senate committee this week,, said: "And probably more important than purely military implications, (lie treaty should provide us with an opportunity to test the sincerity of Soviet protestations about their desire to explore m ore sweeping arrangements for preserving the peace. It.provides us with this opportunity at a minimum risk. . . . "I do not pretend that this or any other agreement between great contending powers can be risk-free. This one is not." But the secretary feels that America possesses the power of a devastating retaliatory attack that could destroy Russia. America can rely on that potential power, however, only as long as the Soviets do not develop a system whereby missiles from the United states or its bases on land or underwater are intercepted and nuclear materials are disintegrated in flight. That's the true worry of the scientists who disagree about approving any treaty while it halts testing in the atmosphere, (O 1U63, N.Y.

BONYAI 3209 Duco * * * * Fishing's for Everyone I will try to make myself clear for Mr. Stecker's benefit. The fact that I have white relatives was not mentioned as a boast. It was a point: The Negro accepts anyone on his merits rather than on a basis of race or religion. I see no connection between my article and the fact that I live in a "public" housing area. However, I am proud to be living in Alton Acres. It is, indeed, a public integrated housing area, and it is quite particular as to who rents the units. As editor of the Alton Acres Monthly paper, I am well aware of the conditions here and know that one has to qualify, and I don't mean with income, alone. Now, as . to this bit about the happy-go-lucky, grits-eating, fishing in the shade, lazy Negro: Where Mr. Stecker travelled to get tliis information is a mystery to me. I never lived in the South, bul I have visited parts of it, and talked to people who were reared there. They have never been content to have the white man run over them. Fishing is a national -sport ant all men are entitled to it. I seems to me that when Mr. Steck er sees a Negro fishing, he's lazy. But if a white man fishes, he's enjoying a fine sport. If Mr. Stecker believes Negroes should forget the law and ministry, I wonder if he thinks they are making things too uncomfortable for some people. I hope we keep the "bandwagon rolling" until we reach the top — the top where equality is practiced for all man regardless of race. MRS.

As soon as it was a few feet high, it was dubbed with slogans likening the growing brick fence to the Berlin Wall. The Cubans Stopped construction. But not their heavily financed countryside propaganda and recruiting operations.

The publications uive a circulation of more .than million over a monthly period in this nation of some three million people run by an easy going, tolerant Swiss-type government. Because the ruling National Council of nine men sees no threat in the intense Communist activity, Uruguay has become t h e beachhead of Cuban and Communist South American activity. A wildly pro-Cuban "July 26th" Cuban Independence Day celebration in the Sports Palace, brought out speakers who polled s6me 40 per cent of the national vote last November and in previous elections. The 'Fidol' Party Amongst them were the leaders of a brand new party actually named after Castro. It is called F.I.D.E.L.' — The initials standing for Fj-ente Izquierdista de Li- bcracion (Leftwing Liberation Front). Naming candidates for the first lime, the F.I.D.E.L. elected one Senator and three Deputies by rolling up <10,000 votes last November. It campaigned on a bitterly anti-U.S., pro-Cuban revolutionary platform. All of this is strongly backed by the Communist bloc network which appears to be the strongest Soviet-Cuban concentration in Latin America. The Soviet embassy alone according to Juan Antonio Acuna, general secretary of anti-Communist Uruguayan Confederation of Labor, has between 80 and 110 Russians living behind a locked gate. The Cubans work closely with them and do the field operations through headquarters in the smaller cities. There also a r e several score Communist "diplomats" in the Czech, Polish, Rumanian and Bulgarian legations. East Germany and Hungary have trade delegations.

Typical of the exploitation of he extreme freedom of movement permitted all Communist propagandists, activists and bloc lountry officials is the holding of a global Communist labor conference here the other day. Special agents flew in from Russia, Czechoslovakia, France and Berlin. Ileer Palace Secrets The Cubans were in charge. First they met over in the "Beer Palace" and then in the headquarters of what is called a union of commercial employes. Its sessions were secret, but it is possible to report the Cubans' plans. This continental labor parley was called in an effort to launch a Latin labor federation under Castro's leadership. Officially it will replace a dormant Communist organization known as the C.T.A.L. — Latin American Confederation of Workers, now operated out of Mexico City by an old friend of Joseph Stalin known as Lombardo Toledano. Tliis new labor movement will have its opening convention soon in Rio de Janeiro, It will give Castro a chance to call simultaneous general strikes in many Latin hinds. This support was pledged to the Cubans here by representatives of Bolivan, Eeu- adorean Chilean and Uruguayan labor. Communist chiefs from those lands have been here for two weeks, Castro's people chose Montevideo not only because of the freedom given the Communists by the Uruguayan authorities, but also because it is simple for underground leaders from Argentina and Paraguay to slip into this city.
