Another communication to go to the council reveals that the board of directors of Alton YMCA have gone on record in favor of the extension of Henry Street from Blair northward to College- 20th. The interest of the board in the long-slumbering Henry extension project was recently communicated to Mayor P. W. Day who has referred the latter for aldermanic consideration. The board's letter, over signature of Forrest L. Cockrell, general secretary of YMCA, says: "The board hopes that this project can be put on the list of future plans to better Alton's street and traffic situation." The new Alton YMCA is now building on upper Henry Street, and the Henry extension would afford it another convenient access route. Ironworkers Ratify •/ Agreement Local 392 of the Ironworkers approved an agreement with the Southern Illinois Builders Association Tuesday night and officially ended a strike that started here that Moscow has changed its strategy' for dominating the Communist world.

WASHINGTON (API-President Kennedy is expected to announce today or Thursday his selection of three neutral members to serve on an arbitrttion panel in the railroad work rules dispute. Under legislation enacted hurriedly last week to avert a nationwide railroad strike on Aug. 29, he has until Saturday to name three neutral arbitrators to the I seven-member panel whicli will rule on two prime issues in the j dispute.

Indications are that two of the neutral arbitrators will be experts in the transportation field. The third member, who would serve as panel chairman, the source said probably would come from the general public. Under the emergency bill enacted last week, hearings in arbitration of the case must begin within 30 days. The board would have 60 more days to make a decision and would make it public in another 60 days. Negotiations on other issues A false social security card was used in an unsuccessful attempt to cash a stolen check at the Kroger store, in Alton Plaza Shopping Center. Store Manager Earl Hicks told police that a male estimated (o be from 17 to $ years old, came into the store and attempted to cash the $115 check. The youth fled when Hicks went to the telephone to verify the check. The check was made out to Victor H. Unterbrink, 1101 Liberty St. The unidentified youth produced a social security card with Unterbrink's name typed in and a signature in almost illegible handwriting at the bottom. The youth told a cashier that Mr. Unterbrink had given hJm the social security card to enable him to cash the check for him. such as wage structure, interdivi-j After the cashier told him that they would have to call Mr. A list of possible arbitrators tojto agreement. he added to four already selected —two by the railroads and two j by the unions—apparently was un- 'der study by Labor Department! sional runs and combination of road and yard work would have to be carried on at the same time. Regardless of whether agreement is reached on the issues to be negotiated, the award of the arbitration panel is to go into effect within 180 days of Aug. 28. the day the bill was signed. The award would be effective for two years, but there is nothing to prevent a strike on the other issues i should the two parties fail to come Unterbrink to verify his authorization the youth fled from the store.
