Findley Suggests Sharing Nuclear Arms, Know-How WASHINGTON (AP) - An Illinois congressman has suggested the United States share nuclear weapons "with nations we can trust" instead of adopting the nu clear test ban treaty. Rep. Paul Findley, R-I11., in a statement Tuesday, described the treaty as an "arms-control deal with an untrustworthy dictatorship." If ratification were up to the House and not the Senate, the Pittsfield publisher predicted, the treaty would be rejected. "We should share our nuclear weapons and nuclear know-how with France and other NATO na tions, the friends and allies to whom we must look for help if a showdown comes," he said. "Up to now, we've denied our friends weapons we know our en emy possesses. We treat our allies as irresponsible children. It's high time we quit this patronizing policy, and treat them instead as true partners." His opposition to the treaty is based upon the following reasons, the 20th Congressional District representative said: "—A total ban on atmospheric testing is not necessary in order to safeguard public health . . . "—The treaty will impede development and application of nuclear power for peaceful purposes • * * "—The treaty is a military disadvantage to the United States "—The treaty tends to weaken the NATO alliance. Findley declared that the treaty and "our talk of disarmament, our pullknit of missiles from Turkey and Italy, and our lack of follow-through in dealing with Soviet military power in Cuba have caused wide concern among our allies. "Who 'can blame them for wondering if we would really defend their cities with nuclear weapons- if Khrushchev pushes the attack button. We can dispel that doubt, and at the same time strengthen NATO, by giving them the know- how and the weapons they need and deserve." PARIS — Several European lines are offering discounts to trans - Atlantic travelers who wish to go one way by ship and return by air. Courthouse Roof Being Replaced JERSEYVILLE - Work has started here on replacing the old slate roof of the Jersey County courthouse that was installed in 1893. Workmen for the contractor, J. P. Yungck & Son of Alton, be gan erecting metal scaffolding Monday and before noon Tuesday the first bundles of new shingles were being drawn up to the roof of the building. The present courthouse is the third one for the county. The first was a building erected by subscriptions obtained when the separation of Jersey County from Greene County was consummat- ;d. That was in 1839, and it was necessary that a site for a courthouse and building be guaranteed in order to obtain action from the State Legislature to bring about the establishment of Jersey County. The first courthouse burned during the early morning of Jan. 6, 1884, and four prisoners who were kept in the jail situated in he basement died in the holocaust. An emergency structure known as the second courthouse was suilt and housed records and served until 1894 when it was sold to the First Methodist Church of Jerseyville and moved to the church site where it was used for many years as a Sunday School chapel. The county board of supervisors at the regular election in 1892 submitted a proposal to Jersey County voters calling for issu- ince of $40,000 of bonds for erec- ion of the present building. The proposal carried and the corner stone of the present structure vas laid July 4, 1893. The build ng was completed in the summer of 1894, and accepted from the contractor May 18, 1894. The cost of the courthouse was $40,411.85. The courthouse was built from native stone cut in the quarries CHECKING FIRST AW KIT A first aid kit to be used in case of a disaster is being checked for sterility at Alton Memorial Hospital by Mayford Ruby, left, safety director of Laclede Steel; Mrs. Orville Henry, center, of the Red Gross, and Charles Pierson, right, assistant administrator of Alton Memorial Hospital. Says Municipalities Should Hike Salaries of Police Voluntarily KANKAKEE, 111. (AP) — Illinois municipalities should raise police salaries voluntarily without being, forced by the state, Lt. Gov. Samuel H. Shapiro said Tuesday night. Shapiro referred to a veto by Gov. Otto Kerner of a bill by the 73rd General Assembly which ivould have raised police salaries $100 to $150 a month. Shapiro addressed a banquet of the University of Illinois Police training Institute Alumni Association. "It may have seemed a disappointment to you," Shapiro said, 'But this bill was not the com- olete answer. In most cases it would have meant a reduction in I force, or a reduction of other services, or more taxes." He said, "The bill made it mandatory on the municipality to pay a certain salary without providing any means to the municipality to raise the money." Shapiro said because some cities and towns have raised pay scales of policemen, reduced hours or issued other • benefits, Kerner decided to withhold state authority to force higher minimum pay. He said, however, "The governor warned that if legitimate expectations are not satisfied the tempered prod of the veto message will be supplanted by the indiscriminate compulsion of the law." Brighton Khoury League to Meet BRIGHTON - Plans for sports banquet and possibly benefit. fish fry are expected to be made at a meeting of Brighton Khoury League at American Legion Hall at 7 p.m. today.

Macoupin Road Chief Is Cleared CARLINVILLE - The Mficou- pin County grand jury failed to return a true bill Monday against Ha! Redfern, highway superintendent of Maeoupin County. Redfern was allegedly charged with falsely claiming experience in roadwork when he applied for the highway superintendent position. Three true bills were returned by the grand jury which was in session all-day Monday and until noon Tuesday. A true bill was returned against Nelson Falter of Chesterfield on a charge of theft. The indictment charges Falter with the theft of a check for $$4,482 on Nov. S, 1962. The check, payable to Falter Garage, was executed by C. A. Gerson of Carrollton. Two true bills were returned against John Spillman and Sonny Johnson. The pair are charged with burglary and theft in each- indictment. Both allegedly entered the Glades Restaurant near !arlinville on July 29 and stole two cases of whisky, a camera and insurance papers valued at $210. The property was owned by Joseph Kapilla. The two men, now in the custody of the U.S. Marshal in Springfield, also are charged with stealing $12 belonging to Belmont Scheffel, owner of the Brighton Mercantile Co. at Brighton.
