fA01 TWO ALTON tVlNWO TftLlORAMI THURSDAY, JANUARY 11, 1*50 T^ ~L Underpass Plan Will Be Pushed Council Supports Program Of Traffic Board Taking a hand In the project put forward Monday by the City Traffic Commission to seek mod ernization of 1he College avenue underpass at Rodgcrs, the Alton entryway of State Route 140, City Council Wednesday night on mo tion of Alderman Tlmmermlere mithori/.ed Mayor Llnkogle to con fer with the Division of Highway! to nsk Immediate alleviation o hazards there and preparation o plans for permanent Improvement Tlmmormiere pointed to the inter est already being taken by Upper Alton Business Men and other civic groups to support the projec as outlined by city traffic officials and said It was possible fedcra aid funds may be secured. After being called to fifth read ing by Ordinance Chairman Gellz the measure proposing establish ment of a separate department to administer the municipal got course was again laid over. Chair man Charles Dooley of the coun ell's recreation and playground committee said that it being under stood the Recreation Commission desires to follow a recommenda tion of the GAAC and the Tele graph (with regard to providing detailed reports on its activities' his committee would like to see thi ordinance inid over. A motion to this effect by Geltz was then ap proved. The council approved on sub jnlssion by Alderman J. Dooley a recommendation of the Traffic Commission that amendment of the school safety slop ordinance be .enacted to set definite hours, morning, mid-day, and afternoons, when the "roll away" stops near schoo' buildings are to be in effect. Also received were reports of the Firemen'* pension board, recommending a tax levy of $12,000, the same as last year, and of the fire chief. Adopted on motion of Alderman •chaefer was a resolution that the Board of Zone Appeals, prior to considering any petitions for reclassifications, have the applicants certify that notice has been given by them to all adjacent and oppo- »lte property owners legally concerned in the mailer. Schaefer said he had heard many comments approving the parking "courtesy" tickets issued at the Christmas* season, and felt the plan merited official commendation. Mayor Llnkogle said he had approved the idea for the courtesy tickets, but that any "bouquets" were due the Police Department. Timmermiere had referred to the revenue committee a proposal that any part of the $26,000 payment by the G.M. & O. towards the Elm-Central bridge that Is unneeded' for construction costs be applied to Deduction of the toridge bond Issue. The idea, he explained, was to reduce the bond issue as much as feasible with the railroad money and thus cut the tax tor bond issue interest. Answering a query by Wetstein the mayor said revised plans for the streets department garage • will be ready within a few days. Timmermiere, seconded by Brown, asked that the next city budget Include a payment toward an Upper Alton merchant's watchman M was done for other business atctlont of the city.

Quake In Callfanla LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12, <*• — Accompanied by heavy rumbling, a sharp earthquake jarred a large •action of southern California yesterday, but It caused no damage. Heaviest jolts were felt in tha tall Civic center buildings downtown, although the temblor wat reported from Long Beach 75 milt* Inland to San Barnardiao, BLOOMINGTON, Jan. 12 W) — Remember the old time threshing machines, with the big crew of neighborhood farmers whe went from farm to farm to thresh the wheat and then the oats? And the crews of "pitchers'" who pitched the shocks onto the rack wagons? And the "catchers" who caught the shocks, arranged them on the racks and later tossed them Into the threshing machine separator? And the big blower which blew the straw out into a big stack? And the water boy who drove a buggy around serving water in a big jug? And best of all, those big threshet dinners? " Modern farm kids don't know much about all this. But a group of 16 old time thresher men of central Illinois is taking steps to see that they do. The threshermen met here last Saturday and formed a permanent organization, "Zehr's Central States Steam Engineers and Threshermen's Historical Association." Dan S. Zehr of Pontiac is president and Charles B. Bennett of Bloomington, secretary. The group voted to repeat the big thresherman's reunion and show of old time equipment that attracted a crowd of about 4000 at its first appearance at nearby Pontiac last September. Pontiac businessmen will cooperate. Prof. Clyde Hudelson of Illinois State Normal University will head the historical committee. He will be assisted by J. D. Roberts of McLean and Frank W. Bill, farm editor of the Bloomington Panta- graph. Lyle Hoffmaster of Chatsworth is agent for buying old steam threshing machines for several persons who want them as r»-1 minders of the old days. He has one on hand and has orders for six more if he can find them. After the threshing machines were replaced by the more modern "combines," they were used for some other farm work for a while —such as pulling old hedge fences. Then some were used as portable sawmills. Practically all now have been replaced by gasoline or diesel tractors. Zehr for many years headed the Illinois Brotherhood of Thresher- men. He recalls the purchase of the first blower stacker for a threshing machine in Livingston County many years ago. "Nobody believed it would work — they thought it would blow the grain out with the straw," he recalls. Heads Hi-V Club The Red and Gray HI-Y Club of Alton YMCA has elected Harold Inlow as president, Louis Lemp es vice president, Nelson Bowers, secretary, and Harold Baker as treas urer. Speaker at the meeting WHS Walter T. Woodcock, executive secretary of Greater- Alton .Association of Commerce. He spoke to the group on "Responsibilities of Citizenship." The group voted to participate In the Illinois' Youth and government program. Representatives of this group will meet with members from all Hi-Y clubs in the state at Springfield in April. At this time they will meet Gov. Stevenson. Several members of the group led by Harold Inlow and Lloyd Disney, boy's work secretary of tha "Y," to go to McKendree College for a Southern Illinois HIY conference Jan. 25.

In Chicago after undergraduate work at the University of Illinois and Harvard FINEST WATCH REPAIRING al Law Ceat, Pranipt Sarvlca JEWEUIY MGPAMBD MOKE Lewis Must Quit in Month UMW Board Could Retain Him After Retirement WASHINGTON, Jan. 12 <*> — John L. Lewis must bow out as head of the United Mine Workers union one month from today unless his own top aides decide to keep him. They probably will. But a compulsory retirement proviso of the UMW'i constitution could conceivably provide a challenge to Lewis' grip on union miners. Lewis himself had "nothing to say" when confronted with the UMW constitutional clause saying that officers must retire on reaching their 70th birthday. The same constitution says the retirement shall be on a pension, but nobody would say hoy much that would be. Lewis turns 70 on Feb. 12. The clause which would make It possible for him to continue at the helm of the'UMW after that date is one which specifies: "Exceptions to this obligatory retirement age may be made by the International executive board if it finds it necessary to continue the services of an officer." The 32 members of the executive board, who get paid $12,000 a year plus expenses, invariably agree with Lewis. It very likely will turn out that they "find it necessary to continue" his services. The same printed constitution, a booklet, also says that Lewis gets $50,000 a year salary, plus expenses, as UMW president. It provides that in case the office of president becomes vacant, the vice president succeeds. The UMW vice president now is Thomas Kennedy,-one-lime lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania. If the /JMY executive board has no other reason for keeping Lewis, one would be that the union is now in a climax stage of a seven-month fight against the coal industry for a new contract. Lewis has directed that scrap all the way. His strategy his been to put every possible pressure on the coal operators to bow to union demands, yet maintain enough coal production to avoid White House use of the Taft-Hartley law's court action powers in national labor emergencies. Another step in that srategy showed up yesterday when Lewis, after letting nearly 70,000 miners in seven states remain completely idle since last week, ordered them back to work next Monday. A week earlier Lewis let 16,000 Illinois miners stay idle for a week before ordering them back. These strikers are all in addition to the three-day work week. This has. brought (A; demands from Congress that President Truman step in to restore normal five-day production and (B) pleas from coal mine owners tl*al the National Labor Relations Board do the same. Robert N. Denham, the NLRB's general counsel, said it will be tomorrow at the earliest before he decides whether to seek a court injunction to restore full production, as the operators have asked. In Congress, prospects seemed dim lor Senate Labor Committee approval of a Republican-sponsored resolution urging President Truman invoke the Taft-Hartley law in the coal dispute. A majority of the labor committee's members, saying they stiU want the T-H law repealed, added that they dislike the idea of backing any move to utilize the law- • Eight GOP senators led by Sen. Ferguson (R-Mich) introduced the resolution yesterday. Rep. Church (R-I11) announced he would offer a similar bill in the House today. Edward Lynch of Wood River Dies Edward Lynch, 68, died at 2:30 p. m. Wednesday at the Wood Rkv er Township Hospital where he had been a patient about six weeks. Lynch, who resided at 452 East Ferguson with his wife, Mrs. Nellie S. Lynch, and stepson, John V. Smith and family, moved to Wood River June 9. He was a retired merchant from Alney, 111. Besides his wife and stepson, he is survived by five brothers and sisters of the Alney vicinity and a grandchild. The body was moved from the Streeper funeral home to the Schauv funeral home at Alney Wednesday evening, where friends may call until time of services Friday afternoon.
