PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENWG TELEGRAPH SATURDAY AUGUST 24, 1963 Editorial And Then There Are Cities' Rights It is encouraging to find a governor who xvjll recognize the need for local governments to have some kind of independence. Governor Kerncr, in at least two cases, ha* expressed this recognition. For years the Illinois legislature lias been Stuffing new problems and regulations down the throats of local governments while giving them little in the Way of revenue-raising flexibility to finance them. Mr. Kerner apparently has put. on the brakes in two cases. He has vetoed a new police-firemen minimum w.igc law that would make shambles of many city budgets under current taxing limitations, and he has vetoed another bill thtft 'WOuld prohibit local municipalities integrating duties of police and fire departments. At the same time lie may well be leaving the way open to remedy a vexing problem. Our own police department is currently undermanned, as an illustration. Additional men are leaving it for other occup.itKins. Tlie pay is admittedly not competitive I'-ith even some ot our smaller neighbors; ccrt.iinly not with man)' industrial positions — though you can't beat that regu- l.iritv. Vet it is extremely difficult to find the city funds with which to finance anything like the raise police and firemen should be given in their pay. Other cities in the state may well be as bad off as — or worse off than — Alton. Some already have realized the economy of either all-out or modified integration of police and fire department work. This may well be the only answer as manpower grows scarcer in reaction to inability of the cities to pay higher wages in these categories. Of course we have to realize that others' pay is going up. The sharply rising scales recently contracted for with building craftsmen provide an immediate illustration. Week of Grace Shaping Up Communuity leadership apparently is taking proper advantage of the week of grace given by the National Association for Advancement of Colored People to regroup and come up with a positive program of action. Contrary to an erroneous statement in the editorial column earlier this week, the NAACP scheduled its City Hall steps demonstration for Thursday night, Aug. 30, rather than last Thursday. Already, Mayor P. W. Day has pressed his efforts to arrange a meeting between leaders of organized labor and the NAACP spokesmen. And we are happy to see included in the group of conferees the city's Human Relations Commission, which should be the center of these activities, in view of its originally assigned purpose and apparent acceptance by the group which is presenting its problems. The face to face discussion between Negro representatives and the groups with whom they have desired to talk over their problems can well work two ways: Giving the NAACP a better undqrstanding of the problems faced by these groups, while the groups get a closer insight into the Negroes' problems. This hardly seems too much to ask, if it can succeed in arousing interracial antipathy here which could be a long time in subsiding. Two-Thirds Anyway, one good thing for the world of journalism came out of the Wally Butts suit against the Saturday Evening Post. Col,- umnist Bob Considine may have raised a new point of law when he closed a recent column with the crack: "Wally Butts asked the libel jury for $10 million from the SEPost, was awarded $3,600,000. He should sue the jury. Jn effect, it declared him two-thirds guilty." More information about its procedures in activating plans for its newly-assumed transit system has come out of the Bi-Statc Development Agency. To say the least, it is encouraging to find an apparent disposition to take fuller advantage of its unified situation in offering better service to the public. Now the agency is studying possibility of new express bus lines — and in the Alton area, too, according to its latest disclosures. \Ve have long urged the potential of better service to commuting workers in this unification of all St. Louis area transit sys- ters. And by commuting workers we do not mean necessarily those who must go over the river into the more immediate St. Louis area. The service limited by extent of their authority would not allow individual bus lines serving Alton in the past to accommodate fully industrial workers in the immediate factory complex. That may well have been a big reason why these transport systems met no better public response. Bi-State has a great opportunity to provide service to the industrial employes of the Alton-Wood River area by offering them direct transportation to their jobs. M- * «• * » Quick Recovery Once again the city can thank the state for a. speedy rescue from an irritating and embarrassing situation. The state division of highways has moved fast to approve city plans for repairing the May 16 Hood wreckage along Central avenue. The holdup was the city's own failure to recognize that the state must have in hand Council approval of a wage scale prevailing in the area. Once both state and city realized the situation, the city moved fast and the state has moved even faster to open the way way for a bid call on the Central job. Renders forum A New Generation Of Negroes i ! A generation of Negroes went; 'along with the segregated way j of lite. Rut today there is aj new generation. i No longer will wo sit amund and accept things as they were, j Our intentions arc to make an impression on the history of the country. | This is tho first generation of] American Negroes to grow up' with the assumption that segregation is dead. We transformed inlcfjrnlion fronr a legal contest to n mass movement, fighting not for future change, but for results here and now. Sensitive to the emergence of the colored men all over the world, conscious that there is a lime bomb ticking in the rixnvded Negro slums of the United States, Negro college students of 19B2 were welded into one of the most fiercely united, dynamic, and optimistic social movements of our time. Characteristically, we have sought out -;ome of the toughest problems in our desegregation movement. But let's not become too complacent. There are still problems to be solved. Such problems as behavior in public, rignt to vote in any state, equal job opportunities, and many other such problems exist. These must and will be disposed of immediately. This reverie will become :\ reality when the people of all races learn the true meaning of equality and express it 'in its purest form. When this is accomplished, there will be a different attitude in the minds of all individuals.

MEMBER 01" THE ASSOCIATED PHESS was a delegation from the All- China Federation of Trade Unions, ft stayed a month and was the guest of the biggest labor feder- alion, and the most vital, in the country. This Is the Communist- dominated Brazilian National Con- 'ederation of Industrial Workers. Peking's mission toured the coun- ry — and this included Brasilia, he new capital, as well as Rio. t was received by the speaker of the Chamber of Deputies and the minister of labor. The discussions were cordial, indeed. There would have been no such sessions f President Goulart had not approved. When this group departed some weeks ago, il was seen off by leaders of Ihe Confederation, by General Gonzaga Leite, and by representatives of the Union of Teachers and the Brazil-C h i n a Cultural Society. They work together. Another, earlier Communist labor delegation came here al Ihe invitation of the Brazilian National Union of Public Civil Service Workers. Still another delegation, this time from (he Chinese Seamen's Trade Union, was received at the aii-port and hosted around town by leaders of the Civil Service Workers and the head of the National Federation of Professional Journalists. There also is a flow of Brazil- Ian delegations to Peking. The most revealing of such trips was the open journeying of a commission of Brazilian Communist Party members Io Peking. There they dined with Mao Tse-tung on April 19, 19(B. Alter they had finished Iheir business in Peking they returned to Brazil. What is startling about all this is the tact that the Communist Party allegedly is illegal in Brazil. Yd its travel freely prominent ciii/ens as comrades. A recent issue of U.S. News and World Report gave information concerning people with out jobs which rarely reaches the headlines. Many jobs are available, but idleness and hanging around street comers often are preferred to work considered menial. Jobs for the unskilled are going unclaimed from one end of the country to the other. Restaurants and hotels complain of shortages of help. So do farmers in harvest season. Home owners regularly are 'orced to do jobs that they would like to have someone do. Recently several jobs opened up in Washington, D. C. for ;roundskeepers. A half-dozen youths out of work for months turned down the jobs. Instead they hung around street corners. Newspaper ads show a great demand for kitchen and dishwashing help. Many youths, both White and Negro, won't .ake jobs, feeling such work only fit for Puerto Ricans. Two workers promised to spread gravel in a driveway. When the lumber executive who owned the house went to pick them up, their mother said "The relief check .just came in. Until they drink that up, you won't find them." Says a job expert in New York: "Kids all want fun or glamour jobs and often turn down jobs that require effort. In some places office workers used to state a preference for any area. Now they specify a street and sometimes even a building. Just the other day we were asked to find jobs for two Kirls in the Pan-American Build- ng. They weren't interested in anything else." In Chicago a teen-ager turned down a job because the location required a six-block walk from the subway. A job counselor in San Francisco remarked: "Many parents The growing trend toward auto •acing in the Alton-St. Louis area s making it a growing big business. Seven auto race tracks are located in the area. These tracks vill schedule 375 to 400 auto rac- ng programs during this season, which began April 1 and will nd Oct. 31. The schedule includes all of the regularly scheduled weekly meets and the special holiday events. Tlie predicted tract attendance lor this summer exceeds 1,125,000. But speaking of fast driving: have you been on the Beltline ately: After midnight the Alton people'can park their cars and are over-protective. At the parent's urging an amazing number of girls who have been working less than a year will quit Iheir jobs to take a three- month vacation in the summer. And these kids are from middle class homes, not wealth} families." Of course (here are cases where unions bar young workers and so do child labor laws. HKLKN W.

I refer to the Forum Letter "ft All Begins at Metro." To begin with, the reference to Metro as a foreign dominated governmental bureau shows a complete lack of information. The writer, in addition to opposing Council-Manager government, indicates he is against such things as census taking, metal health programs, purification of our water supply, any and all kinds of city redevelopment, along with "etc., etc.", whatever that means. So many inaccuracies have been written about • Council- Manager government that it is hard to know where to begin answering them. \nd th^ benefits of Council-Manager have been stressed so often in this column that it would be repetitious. To put it briefly, however, Council-Manager takes the ad ministrative duties out of the hands of the part-time-vote- conscious politician and puts its trust in Ihe hands of a full- time trained, and efficient manager. .' : He is responsible only to a council, .who is elected at large. The manager 'can be fired by a majority vote of the council any time his services are deemed unsatisfactory. Who can say this plan is noi preferable to the setup where an alderman can be elected by a minority of even his ward's vote, and can't be eliminated from his office, almost regardless of his conduct, during his term of office? it makes one shudder to think what could have happened ou here in Milton if we had incorporated instead of being annexed.

May 'Disavow' South Vietnam WASHINGTON — Ambassador lenry Cabot Lodge is carrying :ough "instructions" to strife- orn South Vietnam — despite hose official denials to the contrary. • In effect, he will tell President Dinh Diem that unless the turbulent wrangling with the Buddhists is promptly ended, it will be publicly "disavowed" by the U.S. The clear inference' of this blunt warning is that Washington is prepared to officially reprimand Diem. Such a crackdown would almost certainly have far-reaching inter- lal impact in South Vietnam. It could touch off an upheaval that might mean the end of the long- embattled Diem regime. These stern "instructions" were personally given by the President ;o Lodge before he departed for Saigon/ The President expressed sharp .mpatience with Diem's "dusrup- tive" handling of the thorny Budd- liist problem, particularly the 'provocative" comments of Mad- anie Ngo Dinh Nhu, his outspoken sister-in-law. Unnecessary Trouble "This trouble with the Buddhists is wholly unnecessary," the President said. "There is no real justification lor it. It's as disruptive as it is incomprehensible. Genuine progress was being made in the costly struggle against t h e Communists. Now that's being seriously jeopardized by this needless internal dissension. "We have vital strategic: interests at stake in South Vietnam. We are in direct military confrontation with Red China. We cannot afford to lose this struggle. It has already cost us the lives of more than 100 of our servicemen, and in excess of $2 billion in military and economic aid. Too much is involved to fritter it away in a senseless wrangle with Buddhists. "Diem, and the close relatives around him apparently fail to understand that. The most important thing you can do in Saigon is to make 5 that emphatically clear to him. I know it will be an extremely-difficult and trying job, and you've got your work cut out for you." "I'll do my best," said Lodge quietly. Inner Council Views The elimination . of Diem has long been covertly favored by close White .House advisers. They would like to see him replaced by a young general "with democratic ideas." Just'how this change would be brought about is left dangling. It is strenuously denied the U.S.' is either '••"encouraging or engineering a coup. But.there can be no doubt the "right kind of coup" would be welcomed by the Kennedy administration with open arms. The current backstage contention is that the Diem regime no longer can hope to win the support of the bulk of the South Vietnamese, and without that the costly and protracted conflict against the Communists can't be won. For that reason, it's argued, "new, younger, less dogmatic and more modern leadersliip is essential." Behind this high-placed view is extremely influential policy position paper prepared by J>. Walt Rostow, head of the State, Department Policy Planning Council. It deals wilh the pnlire Far East, and considers South Vietnam one facet. Basic thesis of Rostow is that it'is in the interest of the U.S. to encourage ties wilh Red China, On that profoundly significant policy, Rostov declares: "Since the presenl Chinese Communist leadership has a vested interest in having the U.S. ap io its own populace as implacably liostile, we cannot now expect it to cooperate with U.S. efforts. That being so, we must place primary reliance on U.S. actions which are unilateral in a sense of not necessary requiring a Chi- Com response. "For example: Avoiding unnecessary provocations; pursuing Informal negotiations with C o m- munist China on, specific matters of mutual concern 'as needs emerge and opportunities afford." Foreign Plushes Despite the mass of evidence to the contrary, Secretary Rusk told a group of State Department, summer trainees that in his opinion leftist Cheddi Jagan of British Guiana is "not a Communist." To sharp questions on that, Rusk lapsed into blandly smiling silence and the observation that the trainees watch for developments in the explosive Guiana situation "in the next few months" — whatever that means. If anything comes of the widely discussed proposal to establish observalion posts on both sides of the Iron Curtain, to prevent surprise attacks, General Lauris Norslad, retired NATO commander, is President Kennedy's first choice for the job. He has discussed the matter with Norslad, who evinced interest but withheld decision. (© IB6S. The Hall Syndicate, Inc.) pear to the world at large and MAYBE PONTOONS?
