And if the candidates' campaign advertisement* tfld arguments prove one thing above all others, it's that you can demonstrate just about anything you s#ant to the public with municipal fiscal figures. The Telegraph has kept its readers well-informed through the years regarding municipal operations^ in ouf own as well as our neighboring cities and villages. Fiscal figures are dry, uninteresting to most folks of unstatistical minds, and difficult to remember. If our readers haven't absorbed from the reports ..<*Wfehed down through the years some impressions of financial conditions of their communities, it's perhaps a little late ro be reminding them now, particularly in the bricfcd-down figures that have been given in most of the campaign statements. Fiscal figures are important. When a dollar's gone for something foolish, it's hard, or impossible, to get back. But perhaps the better point of argument might well be the things the money was spent on: How much was obtained from the always-limited amount of municipal money available, and future plans for use of what will be coming in. F ; or instance, if policemen, hired to police, haul folks in for minor traffic violations and allow crap games to go wide open, at orders of official* selected with the help of gamblers' money, the public definite)} has an interest in the matter. Siege of Elections Soon Will End We are nearing the end of the election siege. Our long list began last January, with the city-manager proposal, continued through the judicial and city-township and school elections. Next Tuesday wilt end the long period of voting. Cities and villages of Illinois will elect municipal officials next Tuesday. Akon already has done so because the City 6f Alton and the Township of Alton are coextensive—have the same boundaries; and Alton has its city election on the township day, and thus avoids one election, as do other cities that arc coextensive with their townships. Some cities of that classification elect on the city date, with the township vote delayed, rather than on the township day •with the city date advanced. Last Saturday, school board members and township trustees were elected. Earlier in the^year, the school bond issue was voted. Next Tuesday, Wood River will elect a mayor and councilmen—-the first under the city-manager plan; and East Alton and other village* will name presidents (mayors) -and trustees (aldermen), as will other cities and towns of the Alton area. Not within memory have so many elections occurred with'n such a short time. For Alton, there Pearson's Merry-Go- Round Fooling Public Is An Art WASHINGTON, April 16 - Most people don't know it, hut the arfA of fooling the public has now become a major industry. Millions of dollars are paid to public-relations firms to fool the.public into thinking that the public has madr up its mind on certain questions, when, as a matter of art. Ihe public-relations firm has made up Ihe pub- j lie's mind for it. I Here are two Illustrations of this fooling-the-public racket just come to light. | One is the manner in which c.er- >. tain women's club loaders were paid off and civic associations were j formed by Carl Hyoir and Associates on behalf of HIP railroads to combat the trucking industry. The other is a secret memo by the same Carl Byoir to Craig Sheaffer, now Assistant Secretary of Commerce, aimed at fooling the | public into accepting a national sales tax. ; Sheaffei, head of the fountain- pen company by thai name, is the same man who kicked up a national furor hy firing the director of the Bureau of Standards because he was allegedly unfair lo auto-battery pepper-ups. Sheaffer's background seems lo lit into the i Carl Byoir technique of fooling the public. He was a heavy contributor to rabble-rousers Merwin K. llarl and Upton Close; once became in- 1 dignant at the way one of his pens was tested by ihe P.urcati nf Standards. l^yoir, incidentally, is the sinue man exposed by a congressional; committee as having received $15,-; 000 a month as a public-relations . representative for Hie Na/i KOWTII- ment before Pearl Harbor. This ; deal was arranged by <'.eoruf ^>'l- vesler Viereck who later went lo ;|ail for failure lo re^isier as a Hitler agent. High-Sounding Tax Shuly The manner in which the unsuspecting public is fed publicity under the high-sounding name of some civic organization is illustrated hy Byoir'a organi/.ation of "The New Jersey Citizens Tax Study | Foundation." j The average taxpayer would consider this a most worthy cause, dedicated to helping him lower his taxes. However, a study of the backstage facts shows that the lax- study foundation was actually organized at the time Carl Byoir was launching his New Jersey battle of the railroads against the truckers. furthermore, one of the incorporators of this supposedly impar-; tial citizens tax-study foundation was C. Colburn Hard... the man in charge of Byoir's public-relations campaign for the railroads in New Jersey. Also, court records reveal a long list of checks paid b> the Byoir firm to Fred. W. Goodwin, executive director of the supposedly neutral tax foundation. Thest pay- : menu during the latter part cf 196! wad 1952 totaled $3,700 58. In addition, two checks totaling $:tuo were paid to the tax foundation by th* Byoii firm direct. Finally t memo written b> Byoijr'i oUef public-relations operator |§ N«v Jersey to other member* if fiyoir« .staff during th* Itot Iliifiwi ..... TII* Miami Even m Maybe tht! state representative who introduced that bill to double counties' shafts of the state inheritance taxes collected within their limits ha* something. In receht years Madison Cmtnty hai groaned under the load of function* dropped upon it* shoulder* by state legislative acts that failed to provide additional revenue with which to pay for them. There seemed to be no additional revenue pqnibill- ttes—without increasing the load of the local taxpayer. Now we face a $400,0"0 pending bond issue to let us catch tip. But without relief, we'll be right back where we started in a few more years. The estate tax might well provide an outlet for this pressure. In the first place, 9R per cent of it now goes to the state; 2 per cent comes hack to the county. Assistant* to the attorney general now supervise collection of the taxes. Yet, settlement of estates is essentially a probate or county cojjrt job. Thui we have split up a general function which might be combined. That's bound to cause inefficiency. The undermanned attorney general's staff might be relieved of considerable detail work, if such collections were turned back to the county, perhaps to be supervised by the probate or county court and the state's attorney's office. Such a shift, in the case of Madison County, might very well provide just, the full-lime assistance we need to supervise tax matter* in general and securing rights-of-way for highways - -along with supervising estate taxes. With the county government doing that much to earn it, the "take" of the local body might be j considerably expanded—perhaps to around JO per i cenr, with the rest going to the stale. ! What tlrt 1 county's share under such i plan might be, judged from what it was last year, is $9,000. Of course, estate taxes would fluctuate widely on * basis as limited v county boundaries. But it might be possible to apportion them on a basis similar to" thvit of motor fuel taxes, or state aid ro schools, out ! of a state-wide pool. At any rate, if the county's "tut" la*t year had been 50 per cent instead of the 2 per cent going rate, it's simple lr> see we'd have received $125,000— which is something more than pin money.

We've withstood the trials of so many elections, , and generally our people have cast large votes. Next j Tuesday Alton can sit by and watch its neighbors name rheir public officials. create an event which will develop news items on the subject. "Another method," continues Ihe Byoir recommendation to Sheaffer "Would be a special one or two-clay institute on the sales lax question held under (he auspices of a business administration of a leading c o I I e g e. New York 1 'niversity through ils'Society of Business Advisory Professions Columbia I'ni- vtM-siiy through its Arden-Harri- mnn symposiums; Co-nell, Northwestern, and many other colleges org:mi/e such sessions. They provide a good public relations vehicle for launching a point of \ ieu ." Switching to Ihe use of unsuspecting TV and radio programs, Hyoir recommended: "A good springboard is to origi- nale a Invvn meeting of the air i radio' for sonu place where an audience is available, such ns a local Chamber of Commerce meel- 'ing. The fee for such organi/.ations amounts to about $1,500 and Ihe topic sleeted is generally the one the home group selects. "Another forum interested In such a proposal is Keep Posied (TV Martha Rountreei. An out- of-town origination would -cost aboul $.1,000. "... A number of important as- sociaiions are scheduled for meetings and offer opportunities for suggesting the sales lax topic or speakers on Ihe subject. These include American Maimgemenl As- j socialiiin, Chamber of Commerce.! April !'7-'J9; General Federation of, Women's C I u b s, May U5. Also i scheduled are meetings of the Kco- nnmic Club of New York and the Kconomic Club of Detroit, boih important outlets". The above strategy for concealed propaganda gives some indication of what the unsuspecting, sometimes gullible Mr. John Q. Public is up against when he tries to make up his mind on public issues. ( (Copyright 1H5.'?i j roo\t;itviij.i: «*/ FO.V NKVV YORK, April 16 - All | right, so they got Ihe f/)ngshore- men's Hnion leader, Joe Ryan, indicted on charges of stealing some JI1,000 from the constantly emptied treasury of this mob-run union •-just as they got the Capone, Inc., executives. George Scalise, Willie Rloff nrid Ge.orgie Browne in past years. Still the system rolls on. Joe Ryan isn't the real story. lie was king in name only. He was a penny-ante polenlaie on the labor 'front. The real story is in Ihe hands of the Department of Justice n bulky, grim report just finished by 'SO KMI-agents who worked Ihe nation's waterfronts for more than six months al n cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars lo the taxpayers. Thai report shows old Kintr Rynn was jus I Ihe waterfront account executive for an interwoven mob of p o 1 i t i e n I leaders whose house guests, dining companions, fellow h a n q u e l-atlcnders and business partners reach into the trucking, garment, food, construction and and building service industries. The real story is in (he names and political oft ices of those who protected HIM! directed the kirit; who has jusl had a great fall. The hnilal fact is thai: all (ho public has for its money and patience is the indictment of an AKI. international union president on charges of misusing a few dollars. We've had the jailing of Browne nnd Rioff for shaking the mo\ ie industry down for $1 million. We've had Ihe jailing of George Scalise for stealing from the Building Service I'nion of old charwomen and elevator operators and shaking down building owners. We've had Ihe jailing of Joe Kay of I h e Operating Kngineers for extort ing almost S'J50,0{)0 from road construction corporations But they are alt liviiie comfortably now. Scalise quietly in Brooklyn. Browne and Bioff under the informal protection nf (lie Justice Department somewhere in the mid- west. Kay still influences many of Ihe Kaslern unions in which be (.nee operated. This, even from a jail cell. Kach served a few years i Kay will be out soon) and just slipped out of sipht. Meanwhile the Capone men these ex-union chiefs enriched live galy • as they have been cavorting recently in 16 lush suites in that hotel up in the sixties on Miami Beach. And the hell hops say gleefully the "hoys" from Chicago spend more in one day than Ihe garden variety tourists do in a month. So nothing happened afler Hie noisy jailing of some of the "boys". The narcotics, usury, gambling, shakedown and kickback rackets have been making more money on the New York waterfront than ever before. They flourished even BS King Joe got himself booked and fingerprinted. Nor is this a big city phenomenon. Members of the old Atomic Knergy Commission labor panel have been buttonholed by A-bomb installation workers and told not to listen to some of their leaders lhat thousands have had to pay for their jobs with cash on the line before Ihe first pay envelope came out Ihe construction company window. Over the desk of AFl. Teamsters' leader Pave Heck today come letters and petitions from rank-and- file teamsters who've been assessed $50 a man for the right to drive a truck in some midwest cities. And in a score of unions, when members rise to complain they are told to "Sit down, you're out of order." We get hundreds of letters ending up with "Keep my name confidential, t want to be around my wife and kids just a little longer." Or "I request you keep this con- ficential; we don't want any night visits to our homes." This is terror, on and off the waterfront. In many cities there are crusading, rebellious rank and file leader* watching the indictment of Ryan to learn what the national AFl. will do no* that Ryan has been indicted by tne Mahattan District Attorney. This could be the end, as well as the beginning, of the drive agauutt labor racketeers, it should be tn* beginning.

WASHINGTON, April 16 — The story nf how to jeopardize the lives of tens of thousands of American boys in Korea by failing to pro! vide enough ammunition for them lo fight (he enemy is unfolding now with more and more astonishing; disclosures of Ihe bad fanning, confusion and incompetence of ' Ihe whole military setup in the • Truman administration. j i The tragedy is that some of 1he j same people who were participants j in the military setup are now being j kept in bffice by the present ad- minis! ral ion. Sen. Harry Byrcl, Democrat of i Vii niiiia. and oilier senators arc frankly astonished lo learn that the Meparlmeiit of Defense issued a (lin-c.livp on Sept. 27. 1950. which i was based on HIP "assumption" that Hie Korean VVHC would be eiid- I od nine months later. ' The dale is very significant. Tt will he recalled that Democratic campaign orators made much of ! the fact that Gen. iVIacArlhur on .OH. 15. I9.">0. was alleged to have said thai he thought the "boys ; could come home bv Christmas." I • i I Former Secretary of the Army i ! Frank Pace has just testified at i Ihe hearings concerning ammiini- | lion shortages that Gen. MacAr- Ihur had not predicted the ending of the war by December 1950 hut merely that he (Secretary Pacei ijot the "impression" at Wake Island. ; Not until Ihe Senate" Armed Servi ices Committee got testimony this week from Comptroller of the 'Army, I.t. Gen. George If. Decker. ( concerning ihe secret directive of Sept. 27 had it boon known thai ! Gen. Mar-Arthur, on Oct. 15, \vas ; reflecting decisions on policy already made in the Pentagon. Actually the Central Intelligence . Agency of this'govef-nment, accord- i ing to testimony in the MacArthur Wise Husband PlanningAhead For Vacation I hearings, reported on Wov. 27, l!)50, its estimate that the Chinese j Communists would not intervene ! in the war on a large scale. | Thus, the entire concept of what ammunition should be provided for UIP future was affected by the min: mii/ing hi I9WI and 1951 of the importance of the Korean wnr. The testimony of Gen. Decker further shows thai Secretary of Defense George Marshall, who issued the i directive did so only two days after- he look over from his predecessor, Louis Johnson, in September 1950. It could he lhat the memoranda on I uhich the directive was based were worked up hy subordinate offices in the military, though Gen. Decker : testified that he did nol believe the Joint Chiefs of Staff were consulted in making the decision although it was a "national policy". Presumably President Truman made it or concurred on it. This is an astounding revelation, but it should not he surpris- | ing because for many months it has been apparent to inforn.ed observers that America has not had a military command setup participating in making the broad policies of the administration. Although the National Security Council was established -by Congress for the express purpose of dealing with Ihe calculated risks that grow out of national and international policies of the administration, the Joint Chiefs are not statutory members of that body. Nor is there any evidence that the Security Council had considered the Korean war's duration and gave Secretary Marshall the decision, which he made from a budget standpoint.

By HAT, ROY1.K NKW YORK /P Now is the time for aM wise husbands planning a vacation trip to do a little hard thinking. Millions of. American couples soon will be hilling Ihe open road for a carefree jaunt together in the old family bus. Did I say carefree? For the first 50 miles nine out of 10 of these couples will be barking at each other like strange dogs. "What did I many a woman or a department store?" growls the husband.

"Is this trip really necessary?" he whimpers. "Oh, dry up." snarls his dear one. "If you had your way, we'd be traveling in overalls." Arguments Arise And so it goes. These arguments always arise. P'or a man has a firm faith you can go anywhere with a clean shirt a razor and a toothbrush. But a woman packs for even the smallest journey as if she were bound for the moon. There is nothing like a vacation trip to hringf out the pack rat latent in every wife. "I haven't a decent thing to wear." she moans, and then starts unloading the closets. Her motto is "just one suitcase more." What can a man do about it? Plenty, if he'll just show a little forethought. Such as: 1, Use common sense. Tell her marriage is a 50-50 proposition, and that you ought to be allowed to take a suit for every dress she wants to bring along. However, as the average man only has about three suits, this argument usual I v falls flat on its face. She goes right on stuffing her wardrobe into suitcases. Robert S.

The Nationalist generalissimo was stopped cold in an attempt to raid the. I*. S. Treasury. He tried to collect J2.600.000 for property in Red China, that the t'.' S. never got. But he was turned down flat. The rebuff virtually unnerved his henchmen in the Nationalist embassy here. It was a new and shocking event for them, and they didn't know what to make of it. Following are the details of thli unique affair: In 3948, after lengthy negotiations. Hie II. S. finally arranged with the Nationalists to purchase a number of* buildings and sites to house State Department offices in various Chinese"cities. But before this property could be taken over, the Nationalist regime collapsed and Chiang decamped to Formosa. The U. s: withheld payment for Ihe property on the ground that it. never got it. But that little detail didn't stop Chiang. His Washington ambassador presented a bill to the Truman administration for $2,600,000, claiming that was the amount due on the property sold to the U. S.— but which it never got. The Nationalist dun got nowhere. It was firmly rejected on the advice of Leland King, head of the State Department's division .

Then, once again, Chiang tried to collect- this time from the new Eisenhower- regime. But Chiang had no better luck than before. King again advised rejection, and that's what happened.

MIRROR OF YOUR MIND .V* By JOSKPH WHITNEY Consultant We live in a world of change, and what seemed perfect to us a few years ago may have changed completely in the light of new knowledge. If you and your husband, believed in the same things and agreed on fundamental issues, it is probable that your present ideals are the ones he would embrace. Britain expects to earn UQD from UD.OUO tourist* thi* year. Are "kldtlers" usually Answer; Not necessarily. Since most Americans indulge in "kH- ding," it probably has no connection with either good-nature or ill-nature. Dr. C. P.
