ALfON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST'81, IMS Editorial Commission Needed obviously the handwriting officials 'it€ trying to put on the wall before citizens of Madison Couiity is that we need an entire flew security building. Such a structure, to be up to our needs, would require facilities for juveniles as well as adults. Latest report from Edwardsville is that an architect has estimated it would cost more to place the current jail building in first class shape than it would to construct a new security building. Tlie Telegraph has been pointing out that county voters must be convinced, sooner or later, that this is so, if it is to be accomplished. A referendum for a bond issue would be required by statute. Frankly, we'd prefer having the convincing done before the county board sets about calling a bond issue referendum rather than having to compress all this education effort into one campaign whose purpose is bound to be suspect and questioned by many. We desire to see that Madison County has adequate security measures for its prisoners or any held in detention. And special facilities for youngsters long have been near our heart—an added dividend to building new quarters^ However, we believe Madison countians will need still more convincing and considerable more sales effort before they can be made to realize it would be cheaper to build a new structure than attempt to restore the present one to first class condition. We would recommend that the county board, before going too far into the question of building a new jail, set about enlisting a citizens' committee to study the problem. Its members should be citizens not only- equipped by professional knowledge but by sound judgement (and widely respected as such) to inquire into the problem and reach a decision on it. The group should include, certainly, some persons whose past expressions would indicate to the public they would be difficult to convince of the need. Madison County's Chambers of Commerce should be called upon to nominate a portion of such a committee. The Manufacurcrs Associations included in the county should name their representatives. Organized labor should be called upon to pick its wisest delegates. And certainly the professions — investment men, engineers, architects, and law enforcing groups, including the bar, psychiatrists, and the police — should have their representatives on the committee. We urge strongly that each of these groups, however, be asked to pick its own representatives. Here, again, we feel the public will be better satisfied that the selection was done by persons best fitted to decide upon their competency. Meanwhile, the county jail committee should also obtain a qualified opinion on the question of how hazardous the present structure's condition is as a building. It should keep in mind the necessity for maintaining it in good condition for purposes of security while the need for a new jail building is threshed out. Some Less Noticed Bills Governor Kcrner this week signed into law some of the legislature's heretofore little- discussed, but, we feel, much-needed work. One of the bills he approved establishes a. state board to look into and perhaps determine controls of air pollution. In our own area the Illinois-Missouri Bi- State Development Agency already has undertaken sponsorship of an air pollution study that has produced some startling statistics about the amount of dust dropped on a squore mile of ground. Whether this dropout is good or bad still is to be established, but it's interesting to know, anyway. After all, air is what we all must breath, and it's difficult to escape any imperfection it may contain. Studies and controls in small areas can be helpful in some respects, but they can't be conclusive even in the areas where they are established. The movement of air is such that its controls and policing must extend broadly. For .instance, one industrialist we know of "is authority for die story that gases belched •into the air by one plant here were followed to Springfield. a- * it » * We believe the public will always be sympathetic with the idea of knowing what the other fellow's assessment is. Even more of interest will be what the other fellow managed to get out of the Board of Review in the way of changes. Required publication of these individual changes at the end of the board of review's annuual session, then, should be of broad interest. It would have, over the state, a beneficial effect on our property tax structure. «• ••(• :i * * The requirement of annual statements of financial condition by relief recipients may be of questionable effect. Evidently aimed at en- abling public assistance and other authorities to keep a closer check on the financial affairs of clients, such statements could eliminate a number of them from the rolls. The problem will be to keep the reports accurate. It's difficult to expect that a huge percentage of such unfortunates would be even capable of keeping completely accurate books on their financial affairs. Benefit of this will have to be judged by experience. In another facet of the public aid program we believe a law permitting Public Aid Department employes to report directly to enforcement officials about any relief clients' crimes has beneficial potential. New Director The Parks and Recreation Commission has been fortunate in enlisting the services, so soon, of a new director with the background indicated by John \Voodworth, Jr. Mr. \Voodworch comes here from Joliet, where he is now superintendent of recreation. The attraction to a smaller community lies in the opportunity to head the entire parks-recreation program. Joliet is considerably larger than Alton, but he has had experience in a smaller community, Delaware, Ohio, a college town of about 14,000 popuulation. Our Parks-Recreation program here has begun to take on a completely rejuvenated face under the lay leadership of the joint commission, and Mr. NVoodworth will be a welcome addition to the corps which will devote itself to giving this new shape to things. He will not be able to take over his duties till Oct. 1, after which folks here will watch with considerable interest to see the new developments. Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Nikita Says Arms Race Absurd Editor's Note: Drew Pearson has scored another scoop in the following exclusive interview — the lirst since tlie test - ban treaty— with Nikita Khrushchev. GAGRA, GEORGIA, U.S.S.R. —Premier Nikita Khrushchev has informed me, in the first exclusive interview after the test ban treaty, that tlie Soviet would proceed with arms reduction whether the United States reduced or not, nomics we 'In the field of eco- will compete with you, but we won't compete with you on war preparation,'' he said. The intei-view took place neai the dark blue waters of the Black Sea beside Khrushchev's beautiful swimming pool which he demonstrated to Mrs. Agnes Meyer who participated in the interview. The Communist leader was very frank, friendly anc careful to say nothing which might upset the new era of bet ter understanding between tlie USA and the USSR. He also dis cused Berlin, a possible summii meeting, the late Pope John and prevention of surprise attack. His statement on unilatera disarmament came after I re culled a previously published ad monition by President John F Kennedy to Air Force Genera Curtis LeMay that generals die not need the capacity to destroy Russian cities several thousand times. "General LeMay knows full well his capacity lor over kill," replied Khrushchev usinj, Pentagon parlance for estimat ing the overKilling oJ on en wny, "but he's under pressure from the arms monopolies whicl are trying to get as many wa orders us possible. "Regardless ol whether t h e United States stops Increasing its> arms budget or not we are go- ijyj to stop Increasing ours he- cause w« top enough of tU iese things. You have a lot of lollars and you can go on spend- ng but we will not do that. In he economic field, we will com- )ete with you, but sve won't compete with you in war prepara- ion. Arms Kace Absurd "I believe President Kennedy said the United States could destroy Uie Soviet Union several times; 1 can't remember h o w nany times. He also said tlie Soviet Union could destroy tlie United States several times. Now, isn't tills convincing proof that tlie arms race is absurd? 'Even without an agreement with the United States, sve are not going to spend all this inon- will ter to link arms reduction he disarmament talks in vas a discussion inside our own ;overnment," Khrushchev explained. "Some said it was bet- witl Ge neva, but we finally told our peo [)le it was better to handle i ! unilaterally because if we tiec arms reduction to the talks a Geneva, we would never g e anywhere. "This is what happened. The Geneva talks are still going 01 but we've reduced arms unilat erally. We've saved fantasti funds and our fire - power is no weaker. It is greater." "Th military," Khrushchev concluc ed, "sometimes don't know who to stop." Tlie above appears to confirn and in 1965 we will probably re- j reports thai Khrushchev wa duce allocations for the mill- j having arguments with Red lary even further. iarmy leaders.

It was also reported afte the Cuban crisis that it was Red army which insisted on placing missiles in Cuba. This time, however, Nikita Sergeavilch, as he is affectionately called by the Russian people, was far more friendly to Kennedy. When I asked him David Lawrence Candidates DonH Need Primaries WASHINGTON - Senator Goldwater's decision to stay out of the presidential primaries is bused, IIP says, on "a study of history." The fact is that no presidential aspirant in either party who has gone into the primaries has ever won contests in enough slates to play a decisive part in getting Ihe nomination itself. Of the 16 cand- (dates in both parties from 1932 through 1960, not one entered primaries in as many as one-fourth of tho stales. Most candidates havr declined altogether to go into the primaries. National nominating conventions — made up primarily of organization - chosen delegates, along with some elected delegates — pick the presidential nominees on the basis of what they think is the popular sentiment inside the party. Public- opinion polls across the nation arc a better measure than results in a few primary contests. Not all the would - be nominees of tlie Republican parly or their articulate spokesmen behave as if they recognized tliis sentiment to be paramount. Thus, some of the allies of Governor Rockefeller think it is more important now to attack other Republicans who are mentioned for the nomination. Mr. Rockefeller's weakness today, for instance, is not, as is generally supposed, his recent divorce and re-marriage. Some of the same voters w h o raise tliis objection would regard it as. of relatively lesser importance if they felt that the New York Governor really wanted to see President Kennedy defeated 'or re - election and his policies repudiated. This could be clary- fied in unequivocal terms in every speech Mr. Rockefeller nakes. Too many of the gover- ior's utterances, it is argued by his opponents, have accepted the nain theses of the Kennedy policies, though offering some aniend- nents. Culled 'Mc-Toolsm' This is called "me-tooism" by some of the critics ot the N e w York Governor. The strategy, however, is aimed at winning so- called "independent" or "micldle- tthe-road" voters in the final ection campaign. It does, on tlie ther hand, antagonize the bulk f tlie conservative Republicans i the pre-convention period, and that way cuts down Mr. Rocke- eller's chances of being nominat- d. Now he is being accused of iniing to split the party and de- eat anybody else if he can't get nomination himself. The as- imption is erroneous, but the ap between tlie New York Gov- rnor and the conservatives in tlie epublican party is nevertheless eing widened by such criticism./ What tlie Republican spokes- icn as a whole seem to have lissed is tlie fundamental truism i national politics — that the peo- le have to be convinced that the ncumbent does not deserve re- lection before they will turn leir thoughts toward the selec- on of a candidate to take his lace. The so-called "conservatives" ave already made up their linds that it would be for tlie ood of the country to displace 'resident Kennedy, but many of :iem would have a hard time de- iding to vote for Governor Rockfeller if he is nominated. So the principal job ahead for he New York Governor today is lot just to prepare to run in tlie jrlmaries but to convince tlie ma- ority of Republicans in the coun- ry that he is not at heart a "new frontiersman" who would carry m the Kennedy policies of public spending, unbalanced budgets anc disregard for constitutional principles by tlie use of executive 01 ders whenever political expendi- cncy points that way. Personality Governor Rockefeller is a capable man with a pleasing person ality. If nominated, he woulc make a good impression on the stump, but the election wouldn' be decided on tlie basis of person ality. It would be decided, firs of all, on whether the discontent economic or emotional, is sul ficiently strong to demand change in the White H o u s c The Republican nominee woul have to be u man who represent ed a decidedly different cours of national policy than Mr. Kei nedy does.

"There is another parly which should be asked first." Regarding a summit meeting, he continued, "I never object to one provided the intentions of the participants are good."

Bell Syndicate, Inc.) | in line with tho desires not onl of the- conservative majority the Republican party but of th many conservatives inside Hi Democratic pnrly. This possible alliance- of Democratic eonserva- i lives is larger in numbers than i thc "independent" vote so frequently referred to as a decisive influence in elections. Senator Goldwater, to date, lias won the hearts and minds of many conservatives in both parties. Efforts to belittle his prestige inside tlie Republican party by attributing to him the extremist views of certain groups on Ihe so - called "radical right" are as illogical as would be attempts to identify President Kennedy wilh the socialists and other extremist groups inside the Democratic party, splitting the Republican party. A "Study of history," as rec« ommended by Senator Coldwaler 6 Phoiiey Bogc The material offered as "proof" Council-Managermunicipal government is a "foreign concept" was completely irrelevant. "Foreign", I have always under-' stood, was something beyond the boundaries of one's country. The farthest the article went was Chicago. A lot of good things exist in Chicago in spite of its bad political atmosphere. After all, t is a part of tlie United States and our own state of Illinois, hardly "foreign". r rom Chicago, the writer wanders off into mental health and census taking. Such things have existed a long time and are a necessary part of our modern life. What specific connection they have with Council-Manager government, I don't know. For some time professional alarmists have tried to create a phony bogeyman out of 1313 E. >0th St., Chicago. Their purpose is to find something that will help them sell their misleading publications and obtain fat fees for {inflammatory speeches. All that 1313 E. 60th St. amounts to is a building in which various professional and service organizations have office space. The centralized location serves 10 purpose of convenience and economy through tlie use of. common libraries, conference rooms, and other facilities. The 1313 E. 60th building exists for the same reasons that medical centers, nsurance exchanges, and law buildings are found in every large city. The Readers Digest of April, 962 carried an informative and laudatory article regarding tlie important efforts "to help laxpay- with respect to the futility of primaries, might also include a study of how tlie Republican party committed political suicide in 1912 when tlie Progressive wing, led by Theodore Roosevelt, split the party into two segements and insured tlie election of a Democrat. History, of course, sometimes repeats itself. (© 1963, N.Y. Herald-Tribune, Inc.) iymair* ers get better service for less money through more efficient" government which is tlie common purpose of the organizations with headquarters at 1313 E. 60th. The article was written by a Readers Digest reporter from personal knowledge and observation. In 50 years transportation in the U.S. has moved from horses and buggies to automobiles and jet airplanes. Applying tlie tliinging of Council-Manager opponents, automobiles and airplanes would be a foreign concept. If for practical reasons groups of automobile designers, body experts, automotive engineers, test drivers, advertising agencies, and sales personnel should all have offices in one building, tlie structure would become suspect and subversive. In cities of 25,000 to 50,000 population in tlie U.S. more than 50 per cent have adopted the Council- Manager plan by vote of tlie citizens. If there is anything un-American 'about Council-Manager government, A lot of good citizens have been deceived. Do opponents of Council-Manager not know that before it can be adopted it must be approved by state legislatures and then voted on by the citizens of a community. Under such a process how can it be "foreign"? It has long been apparent that in the absence of yalid arguments against Council-Manager tile tactic has been to try to scare the public with false propaganda and innuendo. "If you can't convince them, confuse them" — happily that political trick hasn't worked in most cities. Let's not fall for it: in Alton. BEN C.

The Allen-Scott Report Reds 'Extra' Friendly to Cuba WASHINGTON — Intelligence authorities are trying to figure out what is at the bottom of two baffling developments in Communist-ruled Cuba. So far no concrete conclusions have been readied on the following: First — the unpublicized visit of Marshal Liu Ya-lou, deputy defense minister and commander of the Red Chinese airforce. While the rigidly controlled press and radio have maintained drum - tight silence about him, he has been elaborately wined and dined. Deputy Armed Forces Minister Balermino Caslilla Ma/ has been Liu's constant companion; Dictator Castro lias had long conferences with him; and he iias met every other top Cuban leader. A number of tlie military have lavishly entertained him. Surprisingly, and most significant in view of the furious public wrangling between Moscow and Peking, tlie six or eight Russian generals in Cuba have gone out of their way to be friendly to the visiting Chinese air marshal. They have cordially shown him some of their troop camps, extensive anti-aircraft defenses and other installations, and given every appearance of being on friendly terms. From all outward signs, as far as Liu and these Soviet generals are concerned everything is peaceful and . harmonious between their violently feuding Communist governments. Another mystery is what's behind Liu's trip. Manifestly, he couldn't have come unless he had been officially invited. Yet Castro and Ms suppet regime are completely dependent on Russia. Militarily and economically he couldn't exist for a month without the Soviet's troops and daily shipments of oil, food, clothing, in- 21, soaks flax 23. wrath 26. perform* 26, congers 31.

The bombastic Cuban dictator can't afford to offend the Kremin — much as lie might like o. He is wholly dependent on it o stay in power, and he is tak- ng orders whether he likes it or lot. So how come Liu's visit, and the red - carpet treatment he las been getting — from both :he Cubans and the Russian general?! Another Puzzle Second baffling development is :he unannounced return of Ani- aal Escalante, veteran Moscow- trained Communist whom Castro expelled from Cuba in March 1962 after loudly denouncing him a "deviationist" and organizer and leader of a "sectarian conspiracy." Escalente went to Moscow, where • he appeared well taken care of. During 'Castro's visit there last spring, EscaJante mingled freely with members of his Today's Prayer Dear heavenly Father, we, wliu so often major in minors, pray that Thy spirit will show us today what things are of real worth and what things are of little consequence. Strengthen us so that we shall not be enticed by tawdry things that are held out to. us but will b6 attracted to the worthwhile tilings upon which Thou hast put Thy stamp of approval. Save us from becoming so much a part of the world that we shall lose our identity as children, of Thy kingdom; through Jesus "Christ, our Lord. Amen. —Roy H. Stetler, Jr., Cheverly, Md., minister, Cheverly Community Evangelical United Brethren Church. (© 1863 by the Division of Christian Education, National Council of the Churches of Christ In tho U. S. A.) entourage. As in Liu's instance, Escalante couldn't go to Cuba without official permission. His unpublicized return can only mean he is back in good graces again. Why and how is conjectural. One Havana report is that a purge of Castro's regime is in tlie making, and that Escalante, a hard - core Communist with extensive experience in tills line, is to do the axing. Whether Castro himself 1s to be .-one 6£ the victims is an intriguing Idea. According to another account, Escalante was sent back by Moscow to arrange the puppet Castro regime's adherance to the Warsaw military alliance. jFrench" intelligence is the source of this information, Tlie French a~re claiming, that', in tlie i recent discussions between Prenier Khrushchev , and Secretary Rusk, tlie Kremlin ruler, offered to withdraw the bulk of Soviet forces in Cuba in exchange for a non-aggression agreement between the NATO and Warsaw alliances. ;• ', Such a deal would mean the U.S. would have to persuade its allies to go along on that. According to tlie French, Rusk said he would relay the. proposition to President Kennedy. Cuban Flashes To combat Increasing sabotage, Castro lias created a new agency titled '.'Office .for the Protection of Production." Its purpbs'e is to safeguard . industries, farms, livestock and storage centers. The agency is under the Ministry of Interior and is headed by an old - line Communist police official Courses in Russian have been niade compulsory in Cuban universities.
