ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Member of The Associated Press. 5c Per Copy. Vol. CXV, No. 6 ALTON, ILL., SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 1950 Established Jantiiry IS, 1834 Start Monday Preparing Way For Levee Job Section of City Dump to Be Moved Further Inshore Another phase of I lie flood protection levee const ruction project is scheduled to go forward Monday. Weather permitting, it was said today at the office of LnCrosse Dredging Co., its sub-contractor, Joeseph L. Pohl Construction Co. will begin clearing work on the rlght-ot-way for thn levee section betVveen Alton railroad bridge approach, at (he foot of Henry and Plum street. Major preliminary project within this section, situated wholly within the city limits, is to move further inshore a section of the city dump on Oily commons in the vicinity of the foot, of Central avenue. The unstable material of which the dump is composed must be removed from the right-of-way for the sandfill of which the levee will be formed so that the levee will have a stable base on which to rest. Authority from Engineers Authorization to proceed with preparation of the right-of-way within the city was recently given by the Corps of Engineers, it, was said at the LaCrosse Co. office. The engineer corps took action after execution of the easement with the city, signing of which was recently announced by Mayor Linkogle. The easement agreement was authorized by City Council last fall. Winter weather, barring snow and ice conditions, is expected to provide an ideal' lime for "shoving over" the outer portion of the city dump. Contractor P hi Friday began moving tils bulldozers and other grading equipment onto the site of operations. He is the same contratcor who cleared the right- of-way in the fall, for the levee section immediately downstream from Alton where the LaCrosse Co. now is making the hydraulic sandfill.

But with the river stage here now on a downturn, it is planned to resume pumping sand next week, likely by Monday. Although first ice appeared in the river above the federal dam here Friday, it was said at the dredging company office that ice Is unlikely to interfere at this time with dredging. The company further has completed preparations for pumping at considerably higher stages of the river than recently have prevailed. Some "spuds," 20 feet longer than those now in use, liave been secured for anchoring its electrically-powered dredge boat. The arrangements made, it was said, should permit work on the hydraulic fill to continue through late winter and spring freshets in the river unless there should be actual flood stages. Driver Averts Collision, Auto Damages Fireplug Police on investigating an automobile accident at Main and College at 11:30 p. m. Friday found that a fireplug at the southeast corner of College and Main, the east edge of the Upper Alton business district, had been damaged when struck by one of the vehicles. Alton Water Co. was given immediate notice, the report shows. The automobile grazing the hydrant was driven east in College by Herbert Pratt of Route 1, Bethalto, .the report shows. The other car was listed as a sedan driven south in Main by DeVera L. Neitzling of ColUnsville. The Collinsville car was said to .have stopped at the boulevard sign, but Pratt veered, seeking to avert a collision with it, and encountered the hydrant. Although weather in Alton was clear Friday, a minor collision at Broadway and Main at 7:15 p. m. was attributed in the police report to an icy spot on the pavement. Vehicles in the collision were driven by Orvllle D. Smith of Cottage Hills and by Raymond D. Rhodes of Wood River. When Rhodes attempted a right turn from Broadway into Main, it was said, his sedan skidded so that each vehicle received a dented fender. .TERSEYV1LLE, 111., Jan. 21.

The federal court jury of eight women and four men delivered the verdict at. 1:50 p. m., nearly 24 hours after it received th8 case. It was Hiss 1 second trial. Last July another jury failed to agree in the case. Hiss faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison plus $4000 in fines. At 1:50 p. m. the jury foreman, Mrs. Ada Condell, said in answer to a question by the clerk of the court, that the defendant wai "guilty on both counts." The court clerk, Joseph Toner, read off the names of the jurori after they had filed back into the courtroom. Each acknowledged his presence by saying, "Here." Mrs. Condell then gave the vir- diet. Hiss and his wife, Priscilla, gave no indication of emotion immediately. The Hisses sat behind their counsel, Claude B. Cross, of Boston, and Edwards C. McLean, of New York. A moment after Hiss heard the verdict, his chin went, up and nil lips tightened. He folded his arms. The jury had returned to the courtroom today to have part of the judge's charge re-read to it. In response to the request, Federal Judge Henry W. Goddard read the jurors for the second time, those part* of, the charge which referred to reasonable doubt, circumstantial evidence and corroborative evidence.

Kxnct Amount I'nKiinwii The coal appears to have bee.i well preserved under the water during the unknown number of years it: has been there. Abbott said estimates of (lie amount of '.'oal there vary from 500 tons to 3000 tons. Apparently, there are no records to show Ihe exact amount. Over the top of the coal is ri thin layer of silt. Presumably, the coal is in n rock pit. Workmen dug into the pond but torn and found it is all coal to a depth of al least, couple of feel, which was all the further they dug on the pond's edge. The coal is to be removed, starting Monday, by a high-lift tractor, n type of device which move:-great quantities of material and loads il. directly into trucks. Workmen have found the pond is fed by a spring that continues to trickle water into the pumped- out area, but not in sufficient volume to hamper the removed of the coal.

Reasonable doubt, the judge said, does not. mean "possible doubt or a fanciful doubt" but means "a doubt which is reasonable in view of the evidence or the lack of evidence." Goddard also told the jury for a second time that the defendant does not. have to prove how Chambers got the documents.
