Goldwater told an overflow crowd estimated at more than 4,000. "It may be that there is a master design buried somewhere amidst the confusion thaet will emerge in time. When and if it does, I can assure you that it will be a plan conceived by the Kennedys, dedicated to the Kennedys and operated by and for the Kennedys." The senator said that "the present administration is taking us down the winding road of i'-responsible spending, questionable defense and dubious foreign relations."

Aldermen Stick with Sidewalks Alton city councilmen Wednes day night declined to eliminate a requirement for sidewalks in the subdivision control act that covers subdividers in a I'/i-mile radius of the city. Extensive discussion of the is sue led to an 8-to-5 vote in favor of retaining the provision. The City Plan Commission had asked the council to take a definite stand on the matter. The point was raised that there are very few subdivisions in the area that have sidewalks. Several councilmen brought out the safety factor, indicating that children are the ones who need the sidewalks most, both for walking to and from schools or school buses and for use as a play area. Exception Made Junior Service League w a s granted a 20 - year lease on the j former Illinois Terminal passen-! ger depot under an ordinance en-j acted by Alton city council, Wed-! nesday night. i The ordinance was approved after an amendment, accepted by ' the League, which provides it ; shall have a firm lease for 10! years, but that after that timej the lease shall be revocable should the city have need of the property for any public purpose. The amendment to give the League firm occupancy for 10 years was made so that the League can finance improvements which Mrs. Ralph Jackson told the council will mean an expenditure of $7,000 to $8,000. City Counsellor J. W. Hoefert said that the state has power to condemn the depot site for highway purposes, and in that case the ordinance provides that the League shall be reimbursed from the condemnation payment for improvements it has made. Mayor P. W. Day said that he noted that by the latest plans of the state highway department it appears the connection of-, the McAdams highway to the Berm highway will not require taking the former depot site. Council Will Study 0-1 + I i Stop Light Protests over the planned removal of traffic signal lights at Owens-Illinois Glass Co.'s E. Broadway entrance, led to the Alton city council taking two actions Wednesday night. It referred the remonstrances from the glass company and the American Flint Glass Workers j Union to Mayor P. W. Day. Then it referred to the traffic committee a resolution of Alderman Louis Bowman which also calls for a review of the signal removal question. Bowman's resolution is "that the traffic signals at the glass works entrance shall not be removed until a program is approved that will protect the welfare and safety of the people of Owens-Illinois Glass Co." Removal of the signal light installation at. Owens-Illinois' Nth to Broadway, at $23.363.85. The bid, lowest among two received yesterday, was over the estimated cost as set by the state. But Public Works Director Paul Lenz said he had been informed by the district office of the Division of Highways tharil would recommend the award being ap Americans," Goldwater said. "A 'Daddy knows best' attitude" has been adopted by the Kennedy administration, the senator said. "And 'Daddy' is getting tougher all the time," he said. "He's beginning to think that he can legislate away and all problems that arise on the American scene." Bayonet-Wielding Troops Arrest Viet Nam Students By ROY ESSOYAN SAIGON.

Four proposed ordinances were introduced and laid over for two weeks, under council rules. One would amend the traffic ordinance; a second proposes sale of leaves of absence for city em- na. "I fail to understand why so much fuss is made over our trade with Red China," he told newsmen. Corporation Council John Hoefert said the reason that subdivisions in the IVz mile radius do not have sidewalks is due to exceptions made in the past by the council. Such requests for the deletion of sidewalks from a subdivision first go before the plan commission and if turned down are then appealed before the council. A clause providing exception in instances of unusual circumstance has been the grounds for the council allowing subdividers to build without sidewalks. A letter from J. Clifford Krug, supervisor of Godfrey Township, was read, in which he said that his township would not accept or assume the liability for such sidewalks. Krug indicated that Godfrey Township cannot afford to assume maintenance of such new sidewalks and consequently will not assume liability for them. Not Liable Questioned by a conncilman as to whether or not Alton would be legally liable for any injuries suffered on sidewalks outside the city, Hoefert said the city would "Our feet are planted in the not be liable. I free world and it is on the basis "If Godfrey will not maintain of that position that we are con- the sidewalks what would happen} ducting trade with Red China on to them?," another councilman [a purely commercial basis." asked.

With One Leg Marine Makes Parachute Jump DETERMINED MARINE By RALPH DIGHTON CAMP PENDLETON. Calif. (AP) —It was quite a jump. Sgt. Donald H. Hamblen parachuted only 1,250 feet, from a helicopter into a lake on this Marine training base. But the leap also brought him from uncertainty into good standing again in one of the toughest branches of the corps— reconnaissance fighters who must operate on land, under water and in the air. The jump Wednesday was the climax of Hamblen's six-month campaign lo prove he's as good as any other man — despite the fact that he has only one leg. Hamblen's left leg was amputated below the knee after he fell onto 12,000-volt power lines last Sept. 2J in a routine training jump. After six months in hospitals, Ham blen, 31. decided to fight his way back into his old outfit, the 1st Force Reconnaissance Co. ofi the 1st Marine Division. To qualify, Hamblen. with an artificial leg, had to pass rigid tests siis a skin diver and prove hi* endurance on land. CAMP PKNDLKTON, Calif.— Sjjt. Donald N. in his final test.
