i?6ttti ALTON EVENING TELEGRAM! AWtJSf 26,1*3 Editorial > But Old Job for Commission Alton's parking meter program was set up more than a generation ago, it was done with the guidance of a special citizens' committee. This committee not only handled the details of setting up a bond issue, but also passed on selection of the meters, themselves. It established A pattern followed In getting the maximum push and prestige behind other major projects. Mayor P. \V. Day now points to the need for a great many meter replacements if the program is to continue effective —- as it should. The mayor also has shown himself thoroughly sympathetic with referring these specialized projects to citizens' committees — as in the case of the sewer program. We believe he could add to the prestige of the new meter replacement program by repeating earlied reference to a committee of Citizens who would have time to make a thor- ougt study of it and conceivably could bring to bear on it specialized professional background. 4 » * * » Encouraging Stocktaking Louis E. Lomax, the Negro writer, observes in "Look" magazine that the march on \Vashington is inevitable and describes the dilemma created by the bill, itself: "Should the bill pass, it will be taken by the Negro as further evidence that the nation acts only when we create a crisis. If the measure fails, the defeat will be taken as final proof that this nation will not yield under any circumstances." We believe most Americans, reading the news thoughtfully, will have realized this as clearly as did Mr. Lomax. And it will be a discouraging realization, unless we also take note that Congress, for most part, is subject to pressure by various agencies to achieve its actions, and that the nation, itself, arises to its finest moments only when it does face major emergencies. What is encouraging about Mr. Lomax's article, however, is his observation that: "When visible, legal segregation is ended, Negroes must come to grips with the fact that they arc an underdeveloped people. We Negroes, on the whole, are not ready to assume the responsibilities that arc inseparable concomitants of the freedoms we seek. "There arc reasons for this, and the Negro's 'cultural gap' has everything to do with what has happened to the black man in America since his reluctant migration from Africa. . . . The American Negro must be taught and is ready to be taught." He predicts .that a "younger crop of Negro leaders who can do an intracommunity job arc already waiting in the wings." His public recognition of a "cultural gap" indicates that one of the race's outstanding spokesmen is not being overoptimistic and docs not underestimate the problem, and gives a note of encouragement to his prediction that the problem will find its solution in leadership within the race. Preserve the Primeval For years this newspaper has carried on resolutely a campaign to keep available to the public a local and highly scenic section of this nation's greatest river. Our own area's section of the Great River Road is fast taking shape as a result. We would be less than consistent if we failed to speak a word for the United States Senate-approved Wilderness Bill, which would reserve 35 million acres of land now withheld from private development. The lands would be preserved in their primeval character for not only this but future generations to visit and enjoy. The benefits of such conservation are difficult to assess economically, it must be admitted. But the areas now are priceless and will continue to be so as places where Americans can go and make direct contact with Nature in all its majesty and original rudeness. We must have areas in this nation where this can be done. To destroy them could easily threaten a loss of our character as a people. Responsible Bill Crucial Confusion An opportunity for Governor Kerner to demonstrate what we pointed to as his respect for local governmental authority in a positive way was presented to him last week, and he took advantage of it. His action of vetoing bills setting minimum pay rates for police and firemen and banning integration of their duties were "back door" approaches to this principle. Now he has signed a bill requiring counties to have annual professional audits made of their accounts, but further providing a limited tax increase capacity to pay for them. : The annual audit in itself might well save its own cost for at least the first few years, as we have discovered in our own county. Furthermore, it insures to a considerable extent against any further fattening of expenses. But as an added dividend, this bill answers criticism we have often made of the legislature. It provides the wherewithal to finance the audit — though the sum as it would apply to Madison county appears a mite short The current confusion in South Viet Nam brought about by President Ngo Dinh Diem's attack on Buddhism is far more important than a threat of loss of an important Far East base for the West to Communism. It could undercut our entire foreign aid policy, coming as it does while Congress is considering serious reductions in appropriations for the program. The South Viet Nam problem could also threaten Congressional attitudes on such things as a steel mill for India and even aid to any nation shipping any materials to Cuba — which would shue off our assistance to many of our closest friends. At a time when the administration needs its greatest freedom in dealing with foreign nations and shoring up the strength of our free world, its ability to continue is being threatened seriously. of the mark. We compliment the legislature on the constructive piece of assistance to our financially belcagured county governments. Draw Pearson 9 s Merry-Go-Round On Rest Homes., Health and Peace Editor's note: This is the fourth and final column by Drew Pearson based on his interview with Premier Khrushchev. GAGRA, Georgia, U.S.S.R. — This interview with Khrushchev was more hurried than last because he was leaving for Yugoslavia. "Because of this," he said, "I can't invite you to go swimming. The last time you were here, I remember (hat you swam like a seal while I wore a rubber tube. I couldn't keep up with you." However, Khrushchev showed us his beautiful tiled pool, 75 feet long with a glass partition which, at the push of an electric button, slides out to enclose the pool from cold air. It was anything but cold on this sunny Georgian afternoon and Khrushchev wore a loose Ukranian shirt embroidered in blue at the collar, without a necktie. Four of his grandchildren played on the beach below. Children grow fast and in two years it seemed as if they had shot up like beanstalks. Two years before Khrushchev had complained that his doctor was making the children capitalistic by bribing them with candy. This year they looked too old lo be bribed. Down the coast half a mile Khrushchev pointed to the spot where the Soviet government is building u rest house for 5,(XX people. He didn't seem concerned about the fact it will completely destroy his privacy.

We discussed some Soviet peas he had sdht me, which had an excellent production record in Russia and did well when I planted them in Maryland. It told Khrushchev of the comment of Madame Dobrynin, wife of the Soviet ambassador, when she inspected the Soviet peas I planted alongside some American peas," she said, "but the American peas have niore pods on them. Perhaps the two should get together." I told my farm manager to harvest the peas separately and plant them again separately, and I told Khrushchev what the farm manager said: "The bees will not let you do that for more than one season. They will mix up the Soviet and American peas and that will be coexistence." "Maybe we should learn from the bees," said Khrushchev. (,'lmufu'iir Tunes In Voice of America As we drove back from Khrushchev's summer place along a cypress - lined road along the Black sea, we stopped briefly at the little town of Gagra, where almost immediately, our car was surrounded by a hundred curious, friendly Russians, many speaking English, all asking about the United States of America. As the car waited, an interesting thing happened. Khrushchev's chauffeur turned on the radio in Khrushchev's own car and listened to the Voice of America. A few months ago it wouldn't have happened but it's happening now all over the socialist world. And when it came to cabling these columns, the telegraph operators said they would be glad to send twice as many if it would help the cause of peace. (C 1063. Bell Syndicate, inc.) * Datiid Lawrence Meaning of Integration Language WASHINGTON - What really is meant by the world "integrationist" or "segregationist"? These terms are widely used nowadays, but accurate definitions are lacking and there is a good deal of carelessness displayed in using them: Is an "integrationist," for in stance, someone who believes in intermarriage of the races, and is everyone who doesn't favor inter - marriage to be labeled a "segregationist"? Some light is Ihrown on the subject by Roy Wilkins, executive secretary of the National Assn. for the Advancement ol Colored People. He was interviewed the other day on a TV program on WOR, called "Ladies of the Press." Naturally, he was asked about inter - marriage as a part of the "civil rights" program. He replied: "Well, we've moved into that area some time ago. We have secured, for example, the repeal of a number of laws that formerly existed in some of the otoher states. "This is a continuing program of ours on which we do not place high priority and, therefore, it isn't pursued with intensity but it is pursued. Our basic feeling is that there must be no legal interference with two persons who wish to get married, and especially ought there be no interference on the basis of race and color. "Where such laws exist, this places a Negro woman, for example, at a distinct disadvantage because she does not have recourse to the ordinary social pro- lections that are inherent in the marriage statutes and in the paternity statutes, and so forth." What Mr. Wilkins says, in effect, is that intermarriage is included within the concept of "equal rights" in the "civil rights" program. Hence, it is an essential part of what is termed "integration," at least on the constitutional side. If, under state law, it is a violation of "equal rights" for a hotel to refuse to receive two male Negroes, it would be a violation of the same rule to turn down a Negro and a white who are married and ask for hotel accommodations. How Many Would Accept? How many of those who proudly proclaim themselves "integra- :ionists" would accept the intermarriage thesis? Some would concede that it is theoretically a violation of constitutional rights for states to impose any barriers against intermarriage of the races. But could any of these defenders of the doctrine then be regarded as "segregationists" if they object to racial intermarriage within their own families? There's also a good deal of intellectual dishonesty in arguing that everybody who favors forced mixing of the races in the public schools is an "integrationist," while everyone who objects to it is a "segregationist." For recently there has been a furor in some of the big cities over attempts to correct so-called "racial imbalance" in public schools —to send white children across lown by bus, away from their own neighborhoods, so as to increase the number of white students in previously all - Negro schools, \vhile similarly transporting Negro children to predominantly white schools. The politicians are already getting a lot of protest mail on this subject. But are the parents of such children to be denounced as "segregationists"? Many of them see no objection to public schools that are "integrated" on the basis of residential districting, but they object to artificial efforts to force "racial balance" of schools on the theory that this is "equal rights." About 'Moderates' Another word — "moderates' —is widely used to describe those persons in the community who don't object to "integration" ol schools or eating places or hotels. But some of these same "moderates" don't agree that the law should prevent any businessman from operating his property as he wishes or desires. When businessmen object to such a course, are they to be called "segregationists"? There are among the "moderates" those who are convincec that "token integration" is the answer and that, if a few Negroes are admitted here and there, the whole rumpus will subside, But the Negro leaders do not feel that way, and some of those "moder ates" who have advocated "token integration" now are finding themselves criticized as "segre gationists," after all. There are, of course, those who bitterly oppose any form of "integration" in public schools 01 elsewhere. Yet among them, especially in the South, are to be found better friends of the Negro than is the case in many parts ol the North. This relationship i ridiculed by critics as a form of paternalism, but it so happens that it is the whites who for several decades now have furnished millions of dollars of tax money to build schools and colleges in the South which have turned out some able Negroes in business and in the professions. «D 1903 N.V.

Readers Forum College-20th Needed The Telegraph editorial concerning the College-20th street route I considered very good. I nt to thank you for it and hope you will be able to have more like it. I consider this route as an important one, also. After all, we only have one through east-west route (Broadway) and we need more. Building streets today is a costly thing, and for that reason I believe we should work on this route a section at a time, just as the state does on many state routes. I believe also that, where possible, all major streets should be plenty wide, especially where vacant ground is available. 1 believe we should widen 20th College from Alby to McGinnis street, and it should be filled to reduce that dip. OTTO BENEZE 513 Pearl St. Wanted: More Goodivill Recently I read Mary Blum's article expressing the love and beauty in her heart, free of bitterness, hatred, and malice. I believe it would help all of us to grow old more gracefully if we could read more such articles instead of the bitter criticism by those who have tried before and still say they are trying to keep our country free. It would behoove some of us to adopt some of Miss B 1 u m 's philosophy, living each day to the fullest and not letting the mistakes of yesterday or the fears of tomorrow spoil our lives. Critics of the gift to Jackie Kennedy, for instance, might want to consider gifts to former President Eisenhower. And those who urged that Jackie pass them on :o the orphanage near her home might urge that Mr. Eisenhower's ;ifts go to the same institution. Those who criticize Jackie in her travels for failing to visit slums should try visiting a few in their own travels. To the critic of Averill Harri. man's conduct in signing the tesi ban treaty as not the right man to work it out, I would say that no man could be the "right man' as long as he's on the "othei side of the fence." As for his smile and laughter at the conference, I see no reason for condemning this in Mr Harriman. We know nothing about the circumstances. The highlights of the treaty, as I read it, make it seem well formulated. Our writer has blasted about everything during this administration, including the Peace Corps, elections — national, state and county — Mel Price, advice on marriage, and now Mr. Harriman. Come along, Mary Blum, with some of those soul-inspiring articles full of praise and an attitude of goodwill. VERNA M. HAWK 910 College Ave. Just Make It a Date Most men get aid on fixed paydays.

SO 53 8 24 PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad: — Exodus — the eternal flight from slavery — has begun in Communist - dominated British Guiana, which is across a stretch of the Caribbean from here. Hundreds of women and children are being moved by their menfolk to England, Canada and the U. S. by ship and chartered plane. These men are convinced that "B.G.'s" capital, Georgetown, soon will be another Havana — and that nothing can stop that small country's national police chief in ponytail hairdo — Mrs. Janet Jagan — from becoming a female Fidel Castro. She is the Prime Minister's wife, but she is the Communist power. One of those who has moved his family, is the anti - Communist leader of the British Guiana Trades Union Council, Richard Ishmael. I have conferred here with some of his friends. They told me of the Communist siege of his home and how he escaped machine gun bursts by inches. The Empty Sent After a recent meeting he had gone out to his car. Usually he is with a driver - bodyguard. This time his companion svas elsewhere. So Ishmael got behind the wheel. His usual place on the front seat, therefore, was.vacant. As he started the auto, that empty seat was cut to ribbons by automatic gunfire. He would have been dead had he been in his usual spot.
