THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1963 Vote Buying In Missouri Charged CARROLLTON, Mo. (AP) Vote buying is widespread in Carrol County and respectable voters refuse to participate in elections, a county grand jury reported to Circuit Judge Arthur W. Rogers Wednesday. The jury returned two indictments and in its interim report, told the court "Those who stoop to selling Hi Mr votPs have become cynical al. mt our democratic processes. So ne frankly announce they sell their votes to the highest bidder." The jury added the practice was not "confined to buying votes of those in the lower-income bracket but has grown to include those for whom neither poverty or ignorance provides rationalization." One of the indictments was atr.iinst Jack Mathis, Carrollton city councilman. He was charged with buying for $5 the vote of Marvin Lentz in the April 2. 1963, city election, David Thomas, county prosecutor said. He was released on $250 bond. The other person had not been arrested. Mathis, a Republican, said "I hardly know the man iLent/.). If we got any justice in our courts there is no doubt I'll be acquitted." The grand jury said there was no evidence either major political party had a policy of buying votes. But it said the practice of vote buying "encourages the belief among the electorate that the honest desire of the majority cannot be realized at the polls." Can-oil County is in north-central Missouri, about 70 miles noith-east of Kansas City, Arrest "Bomb" Bank Robber ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Negro will be charged today with the "clock" robbery of a St. Louis bank. Spokesman for the FBI said William Caldwell, 33, would be named in a complaint charging him with violation of the federal bank robbery statute. Police said Caldwell was identified by Mrs. Barbara Hallam, a teller at the Lindell Trust Co., as the man who robbed her of $1,420 Wednesday after he told her he had a bomb. Mrs. Hallam gave the money to the bandit, who ran from the store leaving a brown paper wrapped "bomb" behind him. Detectives took the package to the Lindell Trust basement where they unwrapped it and found a clock. Officers arrested Caldwell as he stepped from a cab near his home.

Spellman Going To South Pole amiSTCHURCH, New Zealand (AP) — Francis Cardinal Spellman, the Roman Catholic archbishop of New York, is going to the South Pole this Christmas. Cardinal Spellman is his Church's military vicar of the United States. Every Christmas he visits servicemen overseas. The U.S. Navy's antarctic support force announced today that the cardinal will celebrate midnight Mass Christmas Eve at the Amundsen - Scott South Pole station. Then he will return to the American antarctic expedition's main base at McMurdo Sound for Christmas afternoon services. After the McMurdo services he will fly to Byrd station, 800 miles from McMurdo.

NBC is confronted with such a situation Sunday night. Its late-evening "Show of the Week" explains how a young University of Mississippi player became the No. 2 quarterback on the New York Giants football team. Producer Robert Northshield says he and his camera crew approached this specialized biography of Glynn Griffing with the non-football - watchers in mind. "We tackled it as the story of a guy with an interesting occu pation," he said. "We try to show a fellow who has deliberately chosen a hard, bruising way to make a living." The show was ordered almost a year ago. Northshield pro posed to follow a college star from the campus through his first season in professional football. He wanted a quarterback. "The reason we picked Griffing was that it seemed prob able he'd be the successor lo Y.A. Tittle, a very popular player, with the Giants," North- shield said. Todiiy the Giants are contenders for the Eastern Division championship of the National Football League, with the critical game with the Pittsburgh Stcelers coming up on the afternoon of Northshield's "The Making ot a Pro." The hour-long biography will be finished after the game by adding some shots of the play and extra commentary immediately before broadcast time. Recommended weekend viewing: Tonight — Bob Hope Comedy special, NBC, 8:30-9:30 EST Bing Crosby and Jack Benny pinch-hit for the ailing star in a show which also repeats some taped comedy bits in which Hope appeared.

Bill Extends Peace Corps WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate passed Thursday and sent to the White House a bill authorizing a major expansion of the Peace Corps. The action was taken by voice vote, and without debate, on a routine call of the calendar of unopposed measures. The bill authorizes an appropriation of $102 million for the corps for the current fiscal year. Peace Corps Director Sargent Shriver testified last week that plans call for having some 11,300 volunteers in service by the end of next August. Congress appropriated 557 million for the corps last year. Funds for the corps will be included in a catch-all appropriation bill, which also will provide appropriations for the foreign aid program. The Peace Corps is operating in 46 countries, and has turned down or postponed requests from about 30 other nations, Shriver said at the time.

Business Mirror By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)—Business news sot a bit; quota of front- p;ii;e headlines this year stock nvirket chills ami fevers and investigations, tax-cut talk, la- lx>r strife, stock splits. Here, in just one man's opinion, are the 10 top business stories of 19C3. 1. STOCK MARKET. Prices rose to record htehs in the fall as recession fears faded and then to still higher levels in December. The Federal Reserve's raising of the margin rate to 70 per cent cash from 50 per cent may have given some speculators pause but didn't dampen general enthusiasm. 2. TAX CUTS. Hopes for a cut in federal tax rates on 1963 income of individuals and corporations were high In January but by midyear had switched to 1964 incomes. Reform proposals were sidetracked. And the tax- cut bill still languished in the Senate toward year's end. Reaction to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy revived hopes of passage early in 195-1. 3. BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENT. By any but a strictly economic yardstick, the biggest story of the year was the chang- j ingot the guard. But the eco-j nomic effects, if any, of Presi- j dent Johnson's accession lay • mostly in 1961. For industry and ' trade it raised the question of; a now climate for business. This climaxed a year in which the, Kennedy administration had striven to assure business of its good will. The changeover left many uncertainties, but business planning for the future, j even if temporarily hesitant, seemed confident. •I. INTERNAL REVENUE. A crackdown on expense accounts \ caused a furor in the spring and i sadeiicd many recipients of 1 such spending, such as nighl j spols. But by (he end of the year many business houses and individuals bad adjusted to the new rules. 5. LABOR. Unemployment re- ma'ned al the top of the problem list, eased a trifle but unresolved. Many union leaders asked for the 35-hour week and. higher pay for overtime as pos- j sible solutions. The rail dispute; over fea.therbedding went to I compulsory arbitration, raising! fears the government might j move similarly in other labor strife. ! 6. PROFITS - DIVIDENDS, j Stockholders were delighted by I the action of the directors of Chrysler, A.T.&T., General Motors, Pan Am, RCA and others, in splitting stocks, raising dividends, or both. Profits as a whole rose to new highs, and so did dividend payments. 7. GOLD AND THE DOLLAR. An unannounced pact among the U.S. Treasury, the Federal Reserve and the central banks of leading financial countries to protect currencies and reserves kept the U.S. gold loss to a minimum in 1963, even though the balance-of-payments deficit soared in the second quarter before falling in the third. Soviet sales of gold to finance its wheat-buying deals helped inadvertently. 8. ECONOMIC GROWTH. Aft­ er a hesitant strmmer, industrial production, retail gales, personal income, employment, auto production, and the gross national product rose to record highs, outrunning earlier predictions. 9. FOREIGN TURMOIL. Both chickens and French President Charles de Gaulle ruffled feathers. The European Common Market raised the tariff on American poultry sharply, and the United States retaliated at the end of the year by penalizing French brandy, German trucks and Dutch potato starch. This embarrassed a general drive for freer trade, coming up next year in a 53 -nation parley. Do Gaulle in January upset American hopes that Britain would move into the Common Market, with a transatlantic accord to follow. 10. INFLATION. The cost of living rose to new highs in the \ fall, but the increase was gradual. Price rises were announced for steel, aluminum and other metals. Wages went up, too. but j more slowly than in former i years. I .PH I LCQ. GAUNT'S In training the cheetah for hunting, natives of India hold it by a leash and blindfolded untli the quarry is seen.
