PA01TWO ALTON EVENING TBLEORAMI WEDNESDAY, JANUARY It, lift ToTellNeedfor Pension Levies Increase in Tax to Be Asked by Police Tax revenue needs of the police and firemen'! pension funds will be presented tonight to City Council In reports from the respective pension trustee boards. Members of the board of trustee* of the Police Pension Fund at their quarterly meeting, Tuesday afternoon, approved their treasur- «•*•< report for the calendar year of 1949, and adopted a resolution requesting City Council to Increase the tax rate for the pension In 1990 to 5, mills on the $100 of equalfzed valuation. Thin will be an increase of 2 mills In the police pension tax rate, boosting the levy by about $1750, It Is estimated. Under the.recently amended po- llot ' pension act, the municipal pension boards must set up reserve fuMs which within ten years must be made equivalent to $1000 for •ach 1000 of munclpal population. And, because of this new requirement, It was said today by Police Chief Galloway, a trustee, the board decided to ask the council for a small Increase In the tax levy to be made next April. The amount of Increase In taxes recommended Is small, Galloway explained, because the board members decided the reserve fund could be built up gradually over the next decade without need for a large tax boost In any one year. Not until the decennial federal census Is completed, possibly by end of this year, will it be determined just how large a re- aerve fund is legally required here, The Firemen's pension fund trustees have estimated the city population may be shown to be as high a* 40,000, and have estimated their required reserve fund at 140,000.

However, it wa» pointed out by City Clerk Paul Price, secretary of the board, that on present basis of operation and the added $1750 tax income asked, the reserve could be built up to as much as S40,000 within the time limit set by the state statute.

S. in Austria Coal Strike VIENNA, Jan. 11 — UPl— A ring which kidnaped renegade Soviet citizens in exchange for Russian permission to run a cigaret black market has been smashed, accord Ing to American authorities. Twelve men are In jail, and two high-ranking Russian officers have been implicated in the fantastic intrigue. American officials reported that trickery, drugs and force had been used to abduct Russians living in the American zone of Austria. In exchange, said the American authorities, the ring received So> viet protection in a cigaret smuggling deal. For each person turned over to the Russians the ring was permitted to operate for one month. A U. S. Army statement, issued yesterday, said the ring was under direct supervision of Lt. Col. Karandasliov of the central Russian headquarters in Vienna. The army said the arrest of the 12, ringleaders — none of them Soviet soldiers _— had broken up Austria's biggest clgaret smuggling outfit.

By P. 8. COU5LEY To Alton school district laxpay ers: The high school band you are paying to support is doing al right. ' A good many of you have hearc It on the football field, but took It more as sauce for the gander. Not so many of you—only abou ! 700—turned out to hear it when the band, Itself, was the main show in the high school auditorium Tuesday night. And the seating and heating arrangements were a lot more com fortable thure than they woule have been on Alton High's windswept football field. Door receipts last night (Dlrec tor Guy Duker perhaps definitely undersells his band at 25 cents) probably could .buy four or five, at most, Inexpensive violins for the new string classes-being organized in the junior highs. Once upon a time the band drew a turnaway crowd for one concert —and at a good admission price that could produce something. As for last night's program, the band was better than ever. Director Duker had evened up the weight of his program from stem to stern, but nevertheless had given it variety. Short though its period for preparation has been, the band was in virtually top shape. a trumpet or so, Occasionally might have It State Fund at Stake seemed probable that the Truman Continued From Page 1. about what Mr. Truman ha* Ilk mind.

In the case of the social security bill, Mr. Truman Invited Speaker Rayburn, House Democratic Leader McCormack and the 15 Democratic members of the House Ways and Means Committee, for a White House preview and thorough discussion of the imposed program, before It got ts first showing on Capitol Hill. The nearest thing to a powwow on taxes was last week when Secretary of the Treasury Snyder visited the hill and had an hour- ong discussion with Ways and tfeans -Chairman Doughton (D- fC) and Chairman George (D- Ga) of the Senate Finance Committee. The three would not disclose vhat wa* said. Mr. Truman asked for a $4,000,00,000 tax boost last year, but Congress Ignored him. school board would reach a decision at its meeting this evening as to what its attitude will be. In the meantime the school board members and the superintendent's office were declining to admit that they had shown any discrimination at all. The gravity of the situation rests In the fact that the whole state aid fund, which is, an important factor in the support of the Alton schools, would be cut off if It was concluded there Is discrimination against colored children In Alton and that they are not being given an equal chance with white children. What is at stake is the state school distributive fund which for the current year is $288,000 and after July 1, 1950, will be $336,000. Without this state fund the Alton schools could not be operated so as to take care of either white or colored children. The two lawyers who are speaking for the colored people are Attorney Billy Smuth of East St. Louis, and Daniel E. Byrd, assistant field secretary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Tom Morrissey's Hand Injured in Laboratory Tom Morrissey, 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. 11.

On display last night for the first time was the school's new set of pedal-tuned timpnny—a real, but Ions-needed advance for the band. (East Alton-Wood Rive Community High has had a set fo two years now). Two top-applause-getters of th. evening were the closing condensei arrangement of Gershwin's Rhap sody in Blue and James Conley tenor sax rendition of Rlmsky Korsakoffs "Flight of the Bumblt Bee." On the closer, "conductor Duker was pulled back for three curtain calls—one after the house lights had gone on. He had to tel the crowd goodnight. The response to Conley's solo was truly a tribute to the young player. Intended showpieces for the evening were von Suppe's "Light Cavalry" overture, a virtually-retired old warhorse of the brass band repertoire which was whipped oul of its stall and ran a mighty good race; and Sibelius' "Valse Trieste," an arrangement for band from the orchestration. The band played both with real zest—but showed perhaps more real interest (as did he crowd) in a movement from Vali's London Suite" which fin- shed in tribute to the swing Idiom.

BoyKffled By Starvation Couple Face Homicide Charge; Daughter Saved NEW YORK, Jan. 11 <*> - A young married couple was In jail today charged with homicide In thp starvation of a son. The father, Guy Sclelto, hi a $75-a-week salesman. Authorities said he and his Wife, Mary, both 29, admitted neglect- Ing a .1-year-old son, Guy, and a daughter, Vincenza, 5, while two other children were well-fed and well-treated. The neglected daughter was narrowly saved from starvation when found by social workers, police said, but the rescue was too late to save the boy, who weighed only 14 pounds at his death. As the parents were booked last night on homicide charges, Mrs. Scielzo, a short, fat woman, became hysterical. She screamed re bukes at photographers, then rested her head on her husband's shoulder, sobbing. No explanation was offered for the couples' alleged discrimination against the two children. The father was quoted as saying he knew his wife was not feeding the pair properly, but that he could do nothing about it. For two months before the boy died, police quoted him, he could not bear to go into the bedroom where the two lay starving. Police said the two children, their bodies emaciated and covered with vermin and sores, were found In a filthy, sunless bedroom of the Scielzo apartment last Nov. 21 by a welfare investigator. The boy died shortly after. District Attorney Frank S. Hogan said the children "wasted away before their (parents') eyes" but the parents made no effort to help. Authorities said the reason the arrest came so long after the boy's death was that an exhaustive Investigation, involving reports of social agencies, had been conducted.
