ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1963 Editorial Relieving the ADC Disgrace Two bills signed by Governor Kerncr to put A curb on large ;ind illegitimate Aid to Impendent Children "inventories" achieve in .1 more humane manner * pattern we have long advocated. One bill declares that birth of a second illegitimate child to » mother of an illegitimate child while she is receiving ADC is grounds of unfitness. Presumably this would open the way for taking the child away from the mother. The other measure provides the birth of A second illegitimate child is prima facie evidence that, the home in which the child is living is not suitable tor its welfare. \Ve long ago suggested that any one mother should not be permitted to receive aid for more than one illegitimate child. \X ; e felt this would curb the "professionals" in this field. This proposal, however, would not have provided for the welfare of second children born out of wedlock, and we were a mite dubious about it at the time. Our proposal was made to counter a bill before the Assembly which would have re- quired the mother of a second illegitimate child on A DC to be deprived of her power of conception. \Y/e believe the law passed by the jiist- complcted legislative session and signed by (iov. Ktfrner recognized more facets of the problem. It removes from ADC rolls the large, illegitimate families which have been a disgrace to the Illinois relief program, places the children tinder better care, but just as important, should discourage the "professional" illegitimate mothers who intentionally conceive the children to expand their "stock in trade." Announcement of the bill's signing perhaps explains a recent plea by Governor Ker- ncr for more volunteers from prospective foster parents to accept children other than their own race. The need for foster parents is a grave one. and the new law can be expected to effect a heavy increase in the requirements for them. In view of this, greater flexibility in the luster parents' acceptance of children of any race will be needed to expedite their placing and care. Fair Chance, But No Quotas President Kennedy has enlightened his public to some extent on his opinion of quotas in hiring under the current drive against discrimination on racial lines. "I don't thing quotas are a good idea," he said. "I think it's a mistake to begin to assign quotas on the basis of religion, or race, or color, or nationality. I think we get into a good deal of trouble." And lie added: "On the other hand, I do think we ought to make an effort to give a fair chance to everyone who is qualified — not through a quota, but just look over our employment rolls, look over our area where we are hiring people, and at least make sure that we're giving everyone a fair chance. Buc not hard or fast quotas." This, we believe, is a soft answer to hard question being raised on behalf of the Negro community. It requires more, analysis than just a "look over our employment rolls," which, we understand, for long have not been permitted to designate race. We rhink the overall problem of inter- Appreciation Traffic experiences in the area for the last two weeks, and particularly those of Thursday can help us all appreciate better the convenience to Altonians of the often- maligned Clark Bridge. Not only the extra mileage involved and the toll to pay, but the often unconscionable relays involved in using the Chain of Rocks Bridge route to Missouri shore points have made us all more aware of the relative comforts of having our own bridge — crowded as even it sometimes becomes. Users up here will certainly appreciate the speed with which the Illinois Division of Highways completed the work of reconditioning the bridge's decking here. It said the •work would run about two weeks and be done by Labor Day. And that is exactly what happened — if today's completion of the work comes off on schedule. The division deserves real praise from Altonians for keeping its promise. racial employment must be diagnosed in detail, with examination applied not only to relative employment, but to skills and degrees of education among the unemployed. Aside from any feeling we may have of sympathy with or prejudice against a race, we cannot, as a nation, expect to retain maximum strength, or even stick together, with these inner walls continuing to compartmentalize our people, and keep them apart, and set them up one race against the other. But we need a program of applied tests and statistics to help us recognize the degree of the problem before we know just how hard we have to work in solving it. Up to that time any solution will be more hit and miss than wisely evolved and efficiently executed. . Very much opposite to the past practices recommended by some Negro leaders, we will have to start calling a race a race and a spade a spade, with praise where possible; with constructive criticism if necessary. » » Beside the Point Former Atomic Energy Commissioner Lewis L. Strauss has urged during Senate hearings on the nuclear test ban treaty that a reservation be attached allowing us to use nuclear weapons without notice in case of armed aggression against us or any free nation. We assume that such a reservation would be largely beside the point. We can hardly concede that this nation would refrain from using any needed weapons under such conditions, treaty or no treaty, unless some international law enforcing body were available either to make it unnecessary, and/or, with enough power to restrain us. A suggestion for reservations allowing us to use nuclear power to construct harbors, canals, and other peaceful works seems beside the point, too. It is hardly conceivable such uses would be other than underground explosions, a type not covered by the treaty. And we wouldn't even want to employ any of those in such a manner as to foul up our air.

They would not roam around the country because if they left their specific observation post, troops might move while they were away. Khrushchev also talked briefly but positively about the problem of convincing people of the need for trust: "To convince people, it is sometimes necessary to ask: who is doing the convincing —and, do they want to be convinced? Do they realize that in the next war the rich and the poor will require the same coffin?" WASHINGTON.—M a y b e the voice of reason is at last coming through on the racial problem of today. President Kennedy deserves praise for the frankness 1 and blttnfness of the statement he made at his latest press 1 conference telling some of the Negro agitators that they had gone too far in their demands and that a quota system in employment is not practicable. lie said: "t don't think quotas are a good idea. I think it's a mistake to begin to assign quotas on the basis of religion, or race, color, nationality. I think we get into a good deal of trouble "Onr whole view of ourselves is a sort of one society. Now that hasn't been true, but ai least that's where we're trying to- go. And I think that we ought not to begin the quota system. "On the other hand, I do think we ought to make an effort to give a fair chance to everyone who is qualified—not through a quota, but just look over our 'mployment rolls, look over out areas where we are hiring people, and at least make sure that we're giving everyone a fair chance. But not hard and fast quotas. We're too mixed, this society of ours, to begin to divide ourselves on the basis of race or color." Another Voice Another voice of reason has just been raised by S. B. Fuller, one of the most successful Negroes in business in America today. He had only a sixth grade education, but last year paid an income tax on over $100,000. He hitch-hiked from Memphis to Chicago at the age of 23, got a job and saved^up $25. He took the $25, bought soap and started selling it from door to door. From that $25, he developed a business which produces a nationally known line of cosmetics and allied products and whose sales last year totaled more than $10 million. Mr. Fuller also controls eight other corporations, among them a department store and a chain of newspapers serving Negro readers in Chicago, New York, Detroit and Pittsburgh. Mr. Fuller expressed himself last week in an interview in U. S. News & World Report, in which he told the story of. his own career and urged Negroes to own their own businesses so as "to give jobs—not just ask for jobs." "How else," said Mr. Fuller, "could a sixth grade scholar have a job in America that paid him over $100,000 a year unless he was in business for himself?" When asked whether Negroes have "done everything they can do to help themselves," Mr. Fuller replied: Not Done Everything "No, I don't think they have. They have failed to go into business. I'll give you an illustration: In Chicago alone, we! have millions of dollars invested' in church property. I know ofj one church in Chicago that cost over a million dollars but we have not had that kind of money invested in business. "Now, if those people could j put a million dollars in their .church, they could have taken j another million dollars and start-! led a business. And this would! i have helped them employ them-! i selves and others, too." Here are some excerpts from the interview in which Mr. Fuli ler explained his views: I "Q: Is the racial conflict in this country going to spread? Will it result in bloodshed? "A: No. I think the racial conflict in this country is at its height right now. From now on. it's going to have a trend • downward. 1 "Q: Will the demonstrations continue, do you think? "A: Oh. they will go on as long as they get publicity from it. When they don't get any publicity, they will die out. I don't think the demonstrations will igo on as much as 18 months longer. . . . "Q: Is there any justification, then, for Negro complaints about their lot in life? Not Many Complaints "A: They have some legitimate complaints, but not very many. They will find that you cannot sue a man and make him want to live next door to you. You've got to sell him the idea that you are just as good as he is, by performance. You must perform well in your job. You must train your youngsters. You must keep your community as clean ns Die white man's community. You must keep up the home as well as he does.

Readers Forum Edict Didn't Bar Bible Mr, Boland's arguments on the prayer cases can be refuted. (1) The Supreme Court decisions do not in any way prevent the scholarly study of the Bible as history or as literature. This is expressly stated in the most recent decision. (2) No child's right to pray in school is violated. Any child may pray privately on his own time. But there is no right to promote an official or denominational prayer on tax - supported time; therefore if there is no right, then no right is violated. The use of Bible reading and state selected prayers in the public schools is a clear violation of the Constitution. These actions set up Christian- ity as the official religion of our public school system. This country has no "official" religion. If specific worship is to continue, then we should place signs on all public schools: "Christian School System — others also welcome— on our terms". If Mr. Boland and others really desire religion in our public school system, then I suggest they do as the Catholics, Jews, and some Protestants have done. They should set up their own schools and stop using public funds to pay for indoctrinating children with their particular religious beliefs. FRANCIS X. LEIGHTY 116 E. Watkins St. Hartford * * * * Quite a Number of Dishes Still under the influence of Jerome Wiesner and Walter Rostow, President Kennedy has taken another step down the road to ultimate disaster for this country. Top nuclear scientist, Dr. Edward Teller is confidentially reported as being in total despair over the utter stupidity of the test ban treaty with the Soviets. He knows, as do many Americans endowed with ordinary common sense instead of the theoriz- ng of Kennedy's intellectuals, that "treaties" with the Commun- sts are as worthless as a handful of sand in the middle of the Sahara. History has an awkward way of repeating itself. While our Senators are debating on the "Peace of our Time" agreement with Chrushchev, some of the older ;eneration will recall newsree] hots of Prime Minister Chamberlain of England deplaning in Condon in 1938 and triumphantly nforming the world that he had just signed an agreement with Hitler which would assure us of "peace in our generation." There is speculation that there | are other dishes being cooked up but not ready to serve yet. The secret Kennedy and Khrushchev exchange of letters, estimated at from 40 to several hundred, have given rise to the rumor that the White House is cooking up a secret deal to get token evacuation of the Soviet troops out of Cuba in exchange for our gradual abandonment of OUr 60-year naval base at Guantanamo Bay. First we will get the Sovie troops out of Cuba, and thjs wil be fully exploited in the 1964 cam paign. Sources close to the Communis Parly are being told mat Presi dent Kennedy will shortly pardon Morton Sobell, convicted Com munist atomic spy now serving i 30-year sentence. One wonders why we even botli er to elect Representatives a n c Senators, much less raise thei salaries, when the "appointed ex perts" of the president are run rung the country.

Brown was awarded the contract for remodeling the building at the northwest corner of fourth and Piasa streets Into an armory for use' by Battery F, Illinois 123rd Field Artillery. The building was part of the unliquidated assets of the Citizens National Bank. The structure was used as a livery stable by Charles Seibold. A statement of "Intent to dissolve" was filed with the secretary of state by the f$$ear-old Illinois Glass Co. of Alton. Date of dissolution was expected to be on or nea,r Sept. 10: It had merged several years before with Owens Glass Co. of Toledo, Ohio. Miss Mary Estelle Avouris, daughter of Mrs. Charles D. Avouris of St. Louis, and grand niece of Mrs. A. D. Oglesby of State Direct, Alton, had been selected as supreme queen of the American Hellenic Education Progressive Association, from a field of 14 candidates. The Rev. Robert H. Atchison, writing from Havana, described the "beautiful Capitol," which was four years in building at a cost of $16,500,000, paid for by gasoline taxes. Its people, he said, traveling away from Cuba, spoke of the distance in number of miles from the "diamond," a 24-carat jewel which hnd b'een imbedded in the grand reception hall floor," and the mammoth female sculpturing depicting the spirit of Free Cuba. Bill Johnson, pitcher for Hellrung Boys' Club, pitched a no-hitter to defeat Watertowcr Boys Club softball team, 6 to 0. William M. Stewart, Alton native, had been appointed assistant comptroller of the Crane Co., Chicago. He had been assistant auditor of the Northern Trust Co., Chicago, for almost five years. Hartford's Assembly dt God Church voted to erect a new, enlarged two-story structure on its Watkins street property. A forenoon fire, during fl press cleaning op- erntion, damaged the press room of AltoW Dally Times. Heat melted rollers of the press and put it out of operation for the day. The blaze was confined to the press room, and caused no damage to other departments of the newspaper plant. Objections of a number of property owners to the E 2nd Street sidewalk Improvement were continued by City Judge J. E. Dunnegan to the September term of court. The court's order gave objectors leave to amend objections already on file. Village President Peter Meyers of Bethalto threatened resignation because of a tiff with the village trustees over award o( a contract for building a new sidewalk to the Bclhallo cemetery. A meeting of the contributors to the sidewalk fund had been called. William H. and Henry Carlwright, who had sold their farms east of Upper Alton for the state hospital site, had purchased a 484-acre tract near Capo Girardcau, Mo. They divided the tract into two parts, then drew straws to determine which half each should respectively own. Eben Rodgers was now preparing to move from his home on the hospital site and turn the last of his farm property over to the state.

ALLEN and PAUL SCOTT WASHINGTON — The military disadvantages of the nuclear test ban treaty to the U.S. outnumber the advantages seven to four. That's the disturbing comparison in a terse summation of a position paper of .the Joint Chiefs of Staff prepared especially for the Senate committees considering the pact. This still - unpublished analysis is the basis on which the four top military leaders reached their admittedly tepid approval of this agreement. Already this study is the core of the struggle over Senate ratification. It is on the key issues raised by the joint chiefs that treaty opponents are insistently demanding specific and unequivocal safeguards and guarantees from President Kennedy. These demands, rather than the pact itself, have become the real battleground. Presumably, this highly significant comparison will eventually be made known to the American people. In the meanwhile, this column can authoritatively report the following publishable highlights: Advantages To The U.S. 1. U.S. has a larger number of nuclear weapons. 2. U.S. has a wider variety of delivery systems. 3. U.S. leads in "low yield" (tactical) weapons technology. However, the U.S. has virtually no information on the extent of Russian underground testing of such armaments. 4. U.S. has more nuclear plants and a greater stockpile of nuclear material. Disadvantages 1. The Soviet has a definite superiority in "high yield" (50 to 100 megaton) weapons. 2. Soviet knows more about the effects of "high yield" weapons. 3: Soviet is further advanced in "high yield" weapons technology. 4. Soviet is considerably ahead of U.S. in anti-ballistic missiles. 5. The treaty would enable the Soviet to attain parity with the U.S. in tactical nuclear weapons. '6. There are strong reasons to believe the Sovigt knows more about radar blackout effects that; are crucial to the development of anti-missile missiles. 7. The treaty bars the testing of nuclear weapons to determine their performance under operational conditions, This is a particularly critical handicap to thej U.S. What Toiler Told Them There is a striking similarity between the unpublished position paper of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the main points made by Dr. Edward Teller, "father of the H- bomb, in his opposition testimony before the Senate Preparedness Subcommittee. Like the military leaders, the noted scientist stressed that (lie disadvantages of the pact outnumber the advantages to the U.S. Today's Prayer 0 God, Who seekest a humble and contrite heart as Thy temple, make of our bodies' a sanctuary into which Thy Spirit may come. Create an altar within us where prayer may be constant and genuine. Purge our unworthy motives and fan the flame of gratitude. Let Christ be enthroned in our hearts. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen. —Dudley Strain, Lubbock, Texas, minister, First Christian Church. (© 1963 hy the Division of Christlnn education, National Council of the Churches of Chriat in the U. S. A.) Also like them, he asserted that: Russia is definitely ahead of the U.S. in the development of anti-missile missiles; has a big lead in "high yield" nuclear weapons and technology. Other important points made by Teller which have not yet been disclosed are: Tests of low yield (several kilo- Ions) so-called clean weapons cannot be readily detected. Little is' known about Soviet methods of producing clean nuclear weapons. Similarly, the U.S. has little Information about Russian underground testing. A 100 - megaton (equivalent to 100 million tons of TNT) nuclear explosive can weigh as little as 10,000 Ibs. (5 Ions). Test linn Fallout Scientists at Kirlland Air Force Base, N. M., are working on a "capacitor" — a device that would be used to simulate atmospheric nuclear tests. This extraordinary project is highly experimental and its chances of success very conjectural. However, the scientists expect to gain much valuable information in the process of building the capacitor The Russian airforce is now making daily flights between Cairo and the capital of Yemen.
