PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, AUGUST 17,1963 Editorial Stiffening License Collections Madison County would do well to look Squsrtly at the cost of collections of its licenses and see what the returns say. It could he that the results would dictate continued procedure of the type now followed. Or the information assembled might indicate another approach. An illustration is the announcement that members of the county board's Licenses and Investigation Committee collected $2,000 in delinquent fees under the amusement and lodging licenses ordinances in three months of the current fiscal year. This compares to an average collection of only $2,500 for each of the last five full y.ears, County Auditor John Kraynak has estimated there should be about $7,500 wuth o' gold in them thar hills. Apparently what the collection program needs is closer surveillance, rather than the almost complete permissiveness that has been practiced in past years. Am taxing program is unfair vinlcss all pa\ tlteir fair shares. And the success of the county board's committee indicates that considerable escapism has been practiced under the program. The county's improving position as a tourist area will increase the potential for this income source in the immediate years to come. But another licensing system also has been difficult to enforce, too. The dramshop operators have been traditionally slow to pay up through the years, even though the system has longer to establish itself. This has made it well-nigh impossible to do a good job of enforcing the "no license, no operation" requirements of the liquor ordinance over at least three months of the year. At least the work now being done by the Licence and Investigation Committee under leadership of Alton Supervisor Stephen Kennedy should provide more information on what can be done in the direction of stiffening of license fee collections in the county. Reverse Merchandising That Bi-State system of fare changes certainly wouldn't make a merchant very proud of himself if he followed parallel principles. Most of the merchants we know try to attract business by marking down prices on articles that are hard to move. But look what Bi-State has done. While carrying out a general markup campaign in all its fares, it gives the biggest push upward to rides at the time of day when they're least likely to "sell." The school kids are getting their best bargains between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on their weekly "passes." Just at the time of day—after 4:30— when one could expect the youngster trade to slack off and when it needs to be made more attractive, up goes the rate by another five cents. And public transit needs to educate, of all people, the younger crowd. The system does reflect, no doubt, the change in average cost per ride per youngster through the day's cycle. The to and from school transportation period would mark heaviest use of the buses by students, and for that reason the cost per head per ride would be lower. Too, the firm may be trying to discourage the kids riding when adults going to and from work need the bus capacity. It still strikes us that Bi-State has nn educational job to do if it expects to get more people and more youngsters riding the buses. Fare increases in hours after the home rush from schools is over doesn't appeal to us as the That total is enough to populate almost two Alton's—or at least two Belleville's. Payroll costs for the agencies involved now total $28 million a year. The picture adds weight to our contention of Friday that the governor, under his new program of pay raises, should see to it that the changes accomplish what they set out to do—attract and keep the kind of workers who will have a generally more economical effect on the payroll cost. There is little sense in paying higher scales to workers who are constantly flooding our payrolls more heavily, but still fail to accomplish more efficiency. That's a colossal waste. Rivertown State Waste State Auditor Michael Hewlett made a shocking disclosure Friday. The number of state employes has gone up 3,807, to a total of 69,268 since a year ago. Emphasis of Alton's position as a river commerce town on the city's 1964 wheel tax stickers appeal to us as an excellent idea. It could start a cycle of ideas for the stickers, all centering around Alton's scenic and river characteristics. The new license will feature a stylized picture of a towboat and loaded barge. The picture must necessarily be small. \Ve might study the possibility of using somewhat larger pictures in the future to gain flexibility in the subject matter covered. Thus the city could promote some of the scenic effects along the bluffs which are part of the Great River Road at this point. Already the city has given emphasis to the Elijah P. Lovejoy monument. But the remains of the old federal prison used during the Civil War might be the subject of another interesting picture. Lovejoy's press frame would make a handv illustration, too. Victor Riesel in Uruguay Oldest Welfare State Going Broke Renders forum Ban Would Make Us Sitting Duck We all want to maintain peace! and prevent World Warr 111. In order to achieve this objective, we have two alternatives: (1) to rely on military strength, or (2) to rely on Communist promises. The master Communist, Lenin, taught that "Promises are like pic crusts, made lo be broken." Our experience of the last 25 years proves that all Communists practice what Lenin preached. The Soviet Union has made more than| 50 major International agreemenls —and broken every one, except (be treaty Stalin made with Hitler. Even last week, the Communists brazenly violated the Korean armistice. When Kennedy and Harriman ask us to ratify the nuclear Test Ban Treaty, this is equivalent to saying that, although the Communists have never kept an agreement with us before, we can trust them to keep this one. Common sense tells us otherwise. Khrushchev has told us that he plans to bury us. He said: "In the short time I have to live, I want to see the Red flag fly over the whole world." The Soviet psychological warfare experts conceived a bold plan to accomplish what Soviet scientists and military men were unable to do. In 1958 Khruschev induced the U.S. to stop all nuclear development — while undercover, the Soviets pushed full speed ahead. Three and a half years later, in September 1961, Khrushchev began the largest series of nuclear tests in history. He cheated "big", and ultimately exploded more than 70 bombs, including the largest explosion in history. This series proved that the Soviets had been cheating all during the moratorium, that the negotiations at ' Geneva were a farce and a trap, : and that in the area of strategic nuclear warheads, the Soviets had achieved a two-to-one lead over I America. The Harriman Test Ban Treaty has every advantage for the Communists and none for us. Here are some of tis fundamental defects: (1) It will make permanent Soviet superiority in the field of strategic nuclear warheads because it will stop U.S. development. (2) It will allow the Soviets to widen their lead because they will sneakiest in vast Siberian spaces. Soviet tests as late as mid-June indicate that the Soviets have clean nuclear devices that cannot be detected. (3) The first paragraph of the treaty proclaims it is the first step ' toward the goal of general and complete disarmament under the UN.

It has been a welfare state for so long that few of its people really believe it is ever going to point system. You get more points if the work is unpleasant or odious. So an employe can quit work for life at as early as 40 years of age in some cases, and normally 45 to 50. And one quits at full pay — the highest pay received in a working lifetime.

MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Readers Forum Tough oil School Kids Congratulations on your recent editorial on the Bi-State Agency's announced increase in bus fares. The editorial and news items in he Telegraph concerning this mat- .er were among the earlier voice to be heard from in our area. A week ago I wrote a letter o our mayor, pointing out the unfairness of the increase. I asked him as head of our government to stand up and publicly voice an opinion. The citizens can certainly be proud of the stand immediately taken by the mayor of Belleville and soon followed by others of that city's civic leaders. As a result, meetings have been held by parties on both sides and a mutual agreement by both factions may be the result. If not, at least they were heard. Please allow me to point out a few open spots in the news item printed by the Telegraph in this matter. By so doing I believe [ will make it evident that this s far worse for the public than first meets the eye. You reported the school pass be- ng increased to $2 from the present $1.50. This may be true for ligh school student passes, but what about grade school children? My children rode the bus to school last year and the cost was ?1 for a 10 ride pass. If the S2 pass includes them, this -will amount to a 100 per cent increase. Think what this would mean to the people that have two or three children attending grade school. It's not only unjust, it's ridiculous. Bi-State makes much of the [Joint that this would be an unlimited ride pass with a live cents extra charge after 4:30 p.m. and on other than school days. I would like to know where grade school child would be only mean to give you additiona pertinent information that yotu news staff may not be aware of I cannot understand why this agency would propose such an increase. They have announcec a substantial profit for the firs months of operation, enjoy a tax free status, and in a bill before Congress arc asking to be excmp from Interstate Commerce Com mission control. If the bill passes the public is at their mercy. Why haven't we heard from the city government, the Association of Commerce, civic and religious leaders, and ACBG, or anyoni but the Telegraph on this import ant issue. GILBERT V.

Critics of Dr. Mantz's letter on prayers in public schools reject the one most important point: If a child desires to call upon his Creator to bless his daily work should he be denied that right? Such children today would be a minority, but doesn't the constitution protect the minority? Thp Supreme Court decision denies the right of a teacher to teach the Bible. Is the book so subversive that all children of at non-Christian faiths would succumb to its magic? What othei books fall under this court category? The Warren court has set a dangerous example.

Drew Pearson 9 s Merry-Go-Round Turks Favored Removal of Missiles ISTANBUL — Very quietly, 60 Jupiter intermediate range missiles have been removed fro m Turkey. They were placed here during the panic-rush when we thought Russia was far ahead of us in missiles. They were removed last winter and spring. Some critics claimed the removal was part of a deal for Khrushchev's pulling of Russian missiles out of Cuba. To get the story and'to discuss other Turkish-American problems I went to see Premier Ismet Inonu at his weekend home on the Sea of Marmora which looks out on a stream of vessels plying between the Black Sea and the Aegean. Inonu, now 80, was an old military buddy of Attaturk, t h e George Washington of modern Turkey, and sei-ved for 12 years as president after Attaturk died. I had met him in Ankara in 1951, when his parly with its liberal, anti-church reforms had been de; ieated. It came back in I960 through revolution, after the Menderes opposition had pul the reading of the Koran in Arabic- back on the radio, increased the power of Islamic priests, and left behind a trail of graft, some of it involving U.S. aid. Elder statesman Inonu, a small clapper man, was neatly dressed in a waistcoat, though the day was hot. He sipped hot tea, while I drank lemonade, during the interview. After getting the premier's view on the test ban treaty, which he favored, I asked him about the removal of our Jupiter missiles and whether it was linked with the removal of Russian missiles from Cuba. No Bargaining "I heard that (he question was discussed during the Cuban crisis," he replied. "But the United States government stated that there was to be no bargaining regarding the removal of Russian missiles and I have confidence In the word of the United States. "As far as our missiles are concerned, they were removed only after careful consultation by the military of both governments, who came to the conclusion that they had outlived their usefulness and should be removed." I pointed out that some Americans, among them Adlai Stevenson, had proposed that after Russian missiles were removed from Cuba we should then have used the removal of missiles from Turkey and Italy to bargain with the Russians for belter relations. "If there had been bargaining," I asked, "would Turkey have understood it?" The premier, a shrewd politician, recognized that this question could get him mixed up in American politics, so he repeated, in effect, his previous answer. "We heard rumors that the question of bargaining had come up," he said. "But we had already discussed the question of removing our missiles, and we had great confidence in the United States that this was not a bargaining matter. Later, after the Cuban crisis, our missiles were removed, in accordance with our previous understanding with Today's Prayer Eternal God, help us to be good travelers this day. We journey toward an eternal city and we want to be kept on that' upward path. We carry loads that mean life not only to ourselves but also to those around us.

Ht'tter Greek Kt-lntlons We discussed various other matters: Ihe Kurds, who Inonu said were not worrying the Turks, and the freedom of the press which didn't exist tinder Menderes but which Inonu said is now much improved. Then, remembering Greek and Turkish friction is a problem which very much concerns their major ally, tho United Slates, I asked him about relations with Greece. "Our government has worked hard to improve relations w i I li Greece," he said. "And I know for a fact that the Greek government has sincerely done likewise. Of course there are always some polemics in the press which cause trouble. Bui as far as the two governments are concerned, there is excellent cooperation." That, from a former general who in 1922 pushed the Greeks out of Smyrna, left the city burning, and Ihe bay full of dead bodies, svas a healthy and significant statement. «£> 19li3, Boll Syndicate, Inc.)
