(AP Wirephoto Map) Musso Files 2 Lawsuits To Collect Unpaid Taxes EDWARDSVILLE ( - County Treasurer George Musso filed two lawsuits today in Circuit Court to collect a combined total of $9,713.31 claimed due as unpaid personal property taxes, interest and penalties from two Granite City area savings and loan associations. Musso, who filed the suits as ex-officio county tax collector, asked judgment for $7,172.85 against First Granite City Savings & Loan, including $2,679.17 claimed due as delinquent personal property taxes for the years 1951 through 1954, and the remainder constituting penalties, interest charges and costs. Madison County Federal Savings & Loan Assn. of near Granite City was named defendant in the second suit, for $2,540.46. Of that sum, for which judgment is asked, $970.44 represents unpaid personal property tax bills of the firms for the years 1953 and 1954, and the balance comprises penalties and interest charges on the delinquencies, according to the complaint. The suits were filed on .behalf of Treasurer Musso by Assistant State's Attorney Burton Bernard. Edwardsville Laborers Want Shower Facilities EDWARDSVILLE — Business Agent Charles Steward of Labors Local 179 said today he will ask the city to furnish shower facilities for men in the city' sewer and sanitation departments. The business agent, representing 17 city employes in the local union, said he is including the request for shower facilities in his negotiation sessions with the city for a new wage agreement for city employes. City employes are seeking a $65 monthly salary hike the first year and $50 per month the second year in a proposed two year wage pact. Seventeen city employes affiliated with the labor local rejected an offer from the city for a total monthly salary increase of $13 for each employe spread over a two-year period. The union will vote Monday morning on a second offer from the city which would increase sal aries of employes by $13 in the first year. The earlier proposal erpected by the union would have provided an increase of $7 per month for each man the first year and $6 a month the second year. The business agent said this morning that he is seeking adequate shower units for men in the sanitation and sewer departments. Steward said there is no tiot water at the sewer plant and only one wash basin in the plant lab. We also want the men in the garbage 'department to have a place to shower," Steward said. He explained that men in the Sewer department are in contact with particular types of bacteria in their work, some of which cause skin rash. The City Council earlier authorized an expenditure of money for a hot water heater and shower unit at the sewer plant. The unit was not installed until a location could be determined.

He condemned the oppression of Buddhist priests in Scuth Viet Nam, the closing of synagogues in the Soviet Union, the Hungarian government's treatment of Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty who is i n exile in the U.S. Legation in Budapest, and a ban on Protestant missions in some countries. Recalling his adoress to the General Assembly twc years ago, Kennedy said that at that time "theshadow of fear lay larkly across the world." But today, he said, "the clouds territorial clairs in space. Having prepared this backdrop, Kennedy said: "Why, therefore, should man's iirst flight to the moon be a matter of national competition? .Why should the United States and the Soviet Union, in preparing for such expeditions, become involved .ii: immense duplications of research, construction and expenditure? "Surely we should explore whether the scientists and astronauts of our two countries—indeed of all the world—cannot work together in the conquest, of space, sending some day in this decade to the moon, not the representatives of a single nation, but the representatives of all humanity." Even though Kennedy said this might become a worldwide project he emphasized the "special capacity" of the United Suites and the Soviet Union and u&ed the term "a joint expedition to the moon." There was no doubt that he regarded this as a possible avenue of dramatic cooperation between the principal cold war adversaries. But he also stressed that such a step, and others he suggested, "will require on our part lull consultation with our allies." While holding out an olive branch, Kennedy indirectly belabored the Soviet Union for its record in Germanv, Cuba, the Congo, the United Nations and elsewhere.

Natural Gas Expansion To Continue WASHINGTON (AP) - Until and if the United States runs out of gas, no end to the growth of the natural gas business — a dramatic chapter in the nation's industrial history — appears in sight. When oil producers started harnessing the gas that blew out of wells drilled for oil, a giant new industry was born. Some swells lad been drilled mainly for-gas but it wasn't until oil operators started capturing the gas from their wells, instead of letting it ;o to waste, that the natural gas industry really got going. Many wells now are sunk for gas alone. New highs for natural gas production and consumption were set again in 1962, the Bureau of Mines reports. The story has been the same for every yeai since World War II. The report shows that marketed production in 1962 set a record of 13,877 billion cubic feet —a 5 per cent increase over 1961. And U.S. consumption of natural gas in 1962 reached a new high of 13,890 billion cubic feet. This was 6 per cent above that for the preceding year and, it will be noted, more than the market production of U.S. gas for 1962. Residential consumption of natural gas in 1962 was estimated at 3,479 billion cubic feet, com pared with 388.8 million feet in 1906.

Webb, National Aeronautics and Space Administration administrator said Thursday night at Pere Marquette Lodge. Speaking at a Midwest Conference on "Outer Space: The Prospect for Man and Society," Webb said the extent of the space effort "is staggering" and "it is essential that the fruits of the space program be transferred quickly to the civilian economy." The four - day conference at Marquette Park, under auspices of Columbia and St. Louis Universities, has drawn 100 Midwestern citizens — scientists, politiq- ans, industrialists, business and labor leaders and even heads of women's organizations. Their collective opinion on the U.S. space program will be tabulated and united with material lathered in 13 other such conferences for possible guidance in utilizing the results of the space program. Call of the Unknown "Now that man has the ability to leave inner space and break the shackles that have bound him to a single planet, he has before him opportunities to obtain fundamental understanding in areas of scientific interest which have intrigued and tantalized him for generations," Webb said. These areas, Webb added, consist of "the sun and its influence on the earth, the origin and nature of the solar system, the nature of the stars and galaxies, and the origin of life itself." In addition, Webb said, the national decision to develop the capacity to go into space was based on the fact that the general welfare and security of the United States required it. But throughout the effort, Webb said, "it is clear that there would be practical uses of space." "Yet, for American society perhaps the greater significance lies in the fact that the objectives of this program is fully as much to gain knowledge as to secure concrete objectives," Webb said. He pointed out that the huge program is being carried on in peacetime without "the impetus of war." To Solve Problems There are problems in making the transfer of ideas and discoveries growing out of the space program to the civilian economy Webb said, but the "Office of Technology Utilization" has been set up by the aeronautical and space agency to work with the problem. In this office, Webb said, technically trained people monitor and study the research and development programs to identify potential items of transfer. Then, Webb said, a staff ol technically trained people, aided by research organizations, evaluate them for their industrial potential. Results are published in trade and professional journals and one research institute goes about the Midwest talking with industrial and business leaders to spur utilization of space effort discoveries, Webb said. Walter F. Burke, vice - president and manager of spacecraft at McDonnell Aircraft Corp., will speak at the conference this evening and Senator Symington will speak Saturday evening.
