ALTON Editorial **» ••'-'" Uttstumpihg the Tree Program Sometime* you /ind the words taken right out of your mouth just as you're about to say them, The other day, in observing that part of the Park Commission's tree removal financial problem was occasioned by the cost of taking out a number of stumps, too, it occurred to us that maybe the stunipi didn't need removal badly enough to be given A part in this financial crisis. We'd seen stumps rot out for years without causing any great amount of aesthetic difficulty. But we didn't say anything at the time. Now Mayor P. W/ Day has said it for us — to the Park-Recreation Commission, whose problem this dead tree removal has become. \Ve might also suggest the commission concentrate on spending its limited funds to get rid of as many smaller dead trees as possible before attacking those $24J numbers — all of which could stand for several years yet without being too much of a threat to public safety. The commission might also place some small but clear signs on these arboreal behemoths pointing out the foolhardiness of trying to raise large forest trees, particularly of the disease ridden elm variety, within the city. It has been warning against this for some-, time, and providing examples of what should be done in the ornamental dwarf tree planting program. Of course, if enough citizens showed an interest in removing the smaller trees, many of which would be well within the capacity of amateurs under proper direction, the com- mission could conserve its funds for the big luxury jobs. But one of the most eloquent sermons that could be preached in the signs on the, giant tr»« would be the estimated cost of removal. Many people want shade trees, yet don't realize what it costs to remove them when they die. Meanwhile we're thankful the commission has'found an added source of revenue in its emergency fund for this dead tree removal work. » » >t * » The Men Were It Rescue of the two miners at Hazlcton, Pa., in itself, was a great story and should provide the nation with real thrill at realization their lives were saved. An even bigger spine tickler, however, was the reaction shown by these men both while they were still underground, and when they were rescued. , The epic of good-humored courage spoken in their own words by Henry Throne and Dave Fellin, then put to newsprint day by- day could very well go down in history with the rcct'ntly recalled flight of 'Douglas (Wrongway) Corrigan across the Atlantic in a winged crate. The rescued miners' contin- ned concern for their still imprisoned comrade added an extra poignant touch to the personality sketch of the two. We could wish that this day-by-day account could characterize the spirit of America and Americans. Getting It Out in the Open If the currently expressed indignation of Negroes against their repressions has done nothing else, it has brought their grievances into the open, and has given a chance for explanation of the occasion behind the causes. We hope the explanations will be accepted as well as the expression of indignation. A case in point is Mayor P. W. Day's explanation of how it is that the city has no Negroes on its fire department now: The only one to take the civil service test recently ranked seventh and by the time he was approached in order of appointments, a new examination had to be called and a fresh list had to be prepared. As we recall it, this had been the case in Texas postoffices for some time till some pressure from above caused local postmasters to disregard the order of names on the list and fill posts -with' Negroes regardless of their rank. This caused an uproar, when it was disclosed, as loud as the shouting in favor of getting some kind of a Negro-White ratio in the post offices of Texas. As for the local situation, we are encouraged by the promise of spokesmen for the National Association for Advancement of Colored People that competent Negroes will be taking the fire department examination next time it's given. Here we have prospect of getting one phase of our problem solved by facing up to it. It would be regrettable, indeed, for the Nogro race to be unrepresented on the fire department just because its members underestimated the dignity and the required ability of the work involved, and left such things to representatives who couldn't qualify. Meanwhile, the NAACP spokesmen were informed publicly about some of the problems involved in placing Negroes in industry and getting them into labor union apprenticeships. Now that public attitude has started to change in this respect, it is possible qualified • men will have a better chance; that their placement will encourage others to try. ***** Happy Resolution Illinois-Missouri Bi-State Agency's mass transit arm .is coming out better than might have been expected in its first bout with the public. It has decided to revert to its former $1.50 per week student passes instead of raising to $2. A closer look at the problem evidently convinced the agency it would have good reason to make an exception in these areas to the rates announced for the immediate St. Louis district. The distances to be covered here are shorter. We would expect, in taking over an operation as extensive as was assumed, to miss an angle once in a while. In taking' over 14 bus systems,VBi-State has done something that appeals to us as unique on a national scale. We can expect a- number of problems to arise as time goes on and the systems are welded together under the new authority. Many ideas will have to be tried, and if found wanting, either abandoned or revised into further new experiments. Pearson in Bulgaria Women Trade Yoke for Boss's Cap EDITOR'S NOTE — Following the thaw in East-West relations, Drew Pearson today reports from Bulgaria, latest Communist country to open full - scale relations with the United States. VARNA, Bulgaria — This is the last Communist country to come out from behind the American iron curtain. Until recently, U.S. passports were stamped "Not Good for Bulgaria," and if you elected to come here you forfeited the right of State Department protests if you got into 'trouble. But while Americans were barred from Bulgaria, the rest of Europe, both Communist and Capitalist, discovered sonie of the best bathing beaches in this part of the world and have made the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria the land of the Bikini and plump pulchritude. While Kennedy and Khrushchev worry over nuclear tests, those who relax on the "Golden Sands" of Bulgaria argue over nothing more important than the merits of Coppertone and Nox- ema. When I knew the Balkans after World War I, Bulgaria was a trouble-some, ragtag little kingdom which hated its neighbors apd was cordially hated in return. It got mixed up on the wrong side of the Balkan wars, bet wrong of two world wars, and paid the penalty. But today things have changed. There's a new pride in the Bulgarian people, a new cleanliness in their towns, and a certain amount of gaiety that w a s never here before. If you talk to a Bulgarian bureaucrat, he'Jl tel you the reason is Communism. If you talk to a Western historian he'll tell you the reason is the end of the Ottoman Empire which kept Bulgaria under its graft • ridden rule for about six centuries. Or maybe it's because JJuJgarla has enjoyed 15 years o comparative peace. Truck Gardener energetic promoter of tourist trade, Macedonian tobacco, Belladonna, sunflower seed, and has even developed a new tomato for export, which it proudly exhibited to Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman when he came through the Iron Curtain countries recently. Bulgaria is a faithful follower of Nikita Khrushchev's coexistence line, but gripes privately at his economic line. Under the common market plan laid down by the Soviet, Bulgaria is supposed to be the truck gardener for the Soviet. It supplies the fruit and vegetables for Russia. This unglamorous assignment doesn't appeal to Bulgarians at all. What they want is industriali- .ation and more trade with the United States. To that end, Bul- jaria recently got a $900,000,000 oan from the Soviet, signed an agreement paying American wai claims, and has gone to unusual engths in cooperating in people .o-people friendship.

Today, I watched a woman >oss a job of paving the city vharf with macadam. Twenty nen worked under her supervi- ion. The job progressed rapidly. Into this new woman's world, 'resident Kennedy has sent, as U.S. minister a vigorous and harming lady diplomat, Eugene Anderson, who has jumped out of the nits of conventional diplomacy by visiting Bulgarian villages, talking to people In the street, and even winning the dis- Inction of being the first American ever to speak on the Bulgar- an radio. On the 4th of July she spoke in Bulgarian to explain the deals of the American revolution. She also dedicated the American plastics exhibition, which drew a record crowd to see plastic toys, plastic kitchen utensils, and a plastic Studebaker and Chevrolet. Mrs. Anderson has become so well known in Sofia that Bui garians call her "Eugenie" and stop her on the street to say hel lo, Bulgaria has a lot to learn about attracting tourists, especially when it comes to passport regulations. It took us three hours to get our passports cleared, and it was necessary to carry a passport wherever you went. When we departed, a buxom Bulgar bureaucrat insisted on charging our ship 519 for tele. grams we never sent, and jf30 for a taxi we never used. Furthermore, she refused payment In Bulgarian leva, demanded dollars instead, and then refused to maku change in dollars, Such is the female bureaucracy in this part of the Communist world. «gi 1983, Bell Syndicate.

Lmstente Finds Racist Tone in Abe's Utterances WASHINGTON — They stand before the shrine of Abraham Lin coin — before the impressive edifice which memorializes a great man. But do all those assembled this week before the massive statue of the country lawyer who became president of the United States know what he really said above the race problem. Would the Negro leaders of today venture to quote what Lincoln actually said in his public speeches more than 100 years ago? Is It generally realized, for in-i stance, that Lincoln didn't favor the social equality of Negroes and whites and frankly stated that he, didn't believe this should \>c es tablished by law or otherwise? Also, would what Lincoln had to say about the legitimacy of "resisting" court decisions be approved today by the members of the American Bar Assn. who voted recently for a resolution condemning the effort of certain groups to correct by legal methods — rulings of the Supreme Court of the United States considered to be unjust and arbitrary? Yet it's all in a book published in 1958 by the Library of Con gress, giving the stenographic records of speeches made b y Abraham Lincoln in his famous debates with Stephen A. Douglas. Lincoln denounced slavery, and then explained his position on the race problem generally as he said: Favors Whites "I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and the black races. There is a physical difference between the two, which in my judgment will probably forever forbid their living together upon the footing of perfect equality, and inasmuch as it becomes a necessity that there must be a difference, I, as well as Judge Douglas, am in favor of the race to which I belong having the superior position. "I have never said anything to the contrary, but I hold that notwithstanding all this, there is no reason in the world why the Negro is not entitled to all the natural rights enumerated in the Declaration of Independence, the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I hold that he is as much entitled to these as the white man. I agree with Judge Douglas, he is not my equal in many respects — certainly not in color, perhaps not in moral or intellectual endowment. But in tfie right to eat the bread, without leave of anybody else, which Ills own hand earns, he , is my equal, and the equal of; Judge Douglas and the equal of every living man. . . . Cites His Feelings "What next? Free them and make them politically and socially our equals? My own feelings will not admit of this; and if mine would, we well know that those of the great mass of white people will not. Whether this feeling accords with justice and sound judgment is not the sole question, if, indeed it is any part of it. A universal feeling, whether well 01 ill-founded, cannot be safely dis regarded. We cannot, then, make them equals." In another speech in. 1858, Lin coin said: "I will say then that I am not nor ever have .been in favor o bringing about in any way th' social and political equality of thp white and black races — that am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or juror of Negroes, nor of qualifyinf them to hold office, nor to inter marry with white people; and will say in addition to this tha there is a physical difference between the white and ,black race which I believe will forever for bid the two races living togethe on terms of social and polltica equality. And inasmuch as thej cannot so live, while they do re main together there must be th position of superior and inferiot and I as much as any other mai am in favor of having {he super ior position 1 assigned to the svhit race. . . , Found None "I will add to this that"! hav never seen to my knowledge man, woman or child who wa in favor of producing a perfec equality, social and political, tween Negroes and white men. The same year Lincoln bitte ly criticized the Supreme Coui for its decision in the Dred Sco case upholding slavery as a prop erty right. He said of the decii ion; "We propose so resisting it a lo have it reversed if we car and a new judicial rule estab lished upon this subject." Lincoln in another speech quo ed with approval a letter fron Thomas Jefferson, written In 182( which declared that, If Die judt es of the Supreme Court are be considered as "the ultima arbiters o( all constitutional que lions," this could be a "v e r dangerous doctrine indeed an one which would place us unde the despotism of an oligarchy,' So, Irrespective of the homai being paid to Abraham Llneo this week for a particular pu pose, there are plenty of quote lions which, If uttered by anyoi else today, would cause man whites and Negroes to denom such a spokesman us a "racist.'

THE LITTLE WOMAN The current drum beating by ic Kennedy administration for a uclear test ban should prompt ome of his supporters to pause nd think about treaties with Rusa. To the best of my knowledge, oviet Russia has broken every reaty it has ever signed with nyone outside of Its own satel- te states, and has even broken ome of those. The Soviet Union is fomenting revolution all over the world. ; is supporting the most vicious /pe of dictatorships that the r orld has ever known. It continues to oppose the Unit- d States, which it recognizes as s only big remaining obstacle o world conquest, at every turn. Is this the kind of country we hould be making treaties with, specially when the treaties ravely affect our national secur- y? The Kennedy administration is •naking much of the so-called plit between Soviet Russia and ed China. This would be of no elp to us. It is simply an argu- nent between two murderers as o how soon the murder will be one and who will get the most ut of it. The .basic argument between "By golly, your picture IS in the paper!" Readers Forum Fiht Between 2 Murderers these two Communist powers Is quite simple. China wants wa right now. And make no mistake this is war against the Unltec States — all - out nuclear war. Russia on the other hand can quite properly say that we Americans have been so dumb In ban dllng our relations with then that they have had a contlnua series of conquests all over th world since 1945, and they fee there is no reason to change the! policies of co-existence, deception, and conquest because they can see no sign of us changing and stopping it. If this looks like an.argumen that is going to benefit the Unit ed States, it escapes me. You can rest assured that Com munist China and all of Russia' satellites are communist in the! thinking and acting, and that a any time they will turn on the! benefactor, the United States, liki a viper. Continued policies of appeasement as practiced by the Kennedy administration become more alarming with each month tha passes. We can only hope tha something good happens to sto; the program of undermining the United States' position. HARRY MANTZ, M.D. Fairmount Addition White Flight to Suburbs Mrs. Leighty has an opinion on e rights of free association that jeaks ill of the American sys- em. We all realize the limita- ons on free associations just as e realize the limitations on oth- r aspects of freedom. To deny lie existence of free association s an American freedom is to eny other freedoms. Negroes speak of their rights live where they wish, forget- ng, or not caring, whether •hite people wish to live beside hem. And many white people do ot care to — as exemplified by le white flight to suburban reas such as Brighton. 25 and 50 Years ... A tflafi find afl tirtdiSnUfiei! boy* About ?

This would give the Cubans a base from which to fan out amongst the new and still weak island nations which run in stepping stone formation down to Communist - dominated British Guiana. President Bosch and his col- eagues believe that too many observers are. absorbed byvthe melodrama' of Castro's "'gtferrilla ca : dres arid terror" squads.j on the South American cqhti'rieht Here, in Dominica, I was.'told, the Castro apparatus is no Jess ominous though it has switched 'to quieter tactics. But the action squads are :here. These are the "turbas" ch actually declared street warfare against U.'S. property and officials not too long ago. In the first five months of U.S. Ambassador John Martin's duties here, his auto was burned. The U.S. Embassy was picketed. His children's school was invaded by a stone - throwing mob. His family, and himself, were surrounded by jeering crowds. This led to rumors that he had been assassinated. The "turbas" were Communist creations — and we even know the wage scale for vandalism anc attacks on Americans. The Communists paid $50 to get an American flag burned. For $150 the Party got a street riot. It upped the ante to $350 for destructior of U.S. property. Some of the turba squads were made up o hoods. Others were Communist students at the university, which ms not been functioning foi nonths because the young Com munists on campus simply began shooting at their opponents in the school's elections.
