Survey Shows Older Buildings Are Decreasing in Price Cleanup Week Proclaimed by Three Mayors Cleanup, Palntup, Flxup Week will open Monday with the blessings of three area mayors. Mayor Stump of Hartford and Mayor Stoneham of Wood River, as well as Mayor Linkogle\ of Alton, have proclaimed Cleanup Week, which Is sponsored In Alton by a committee of the Greater Alton Association of Commerce. Mayor Linkogle's proclamation states: "Whereas, the general health and welfare of our citizens de- ponds upon wholesome surroundings arising from good clean living conditions, and "Whereas, the lives and property of our people are endangered by fire caused by the cluttered conditions in homos, factories, alleys and streets, and "Whereas, unity of effort is required for the future development 136 Marriages 'Dissolved' by Alton's Court of our community, "Therefore I call upon all Germans Seek Reputation BONN, Germany A 1 —The West German government has alloted $'JS5,000 to a New York public relations firm for the year starting July 1. The government says the purpose is "to develop understanding for the German political, social, cultural and economic problems." German officials say their spending in the United States is modest compared to that of other nations. The United States itself is spending l'(i millions a year for informational outlets in Germany. departments of the city, its commercial organizations, civic clubs, schools, churches, boys' and girls' clubs and all other associations, and our people in general, to take an active part in this constructive program for community improvement to insure its success." Ok a y on Sale Of Huskinson House Pending Question of approval of the sale of the residence of Guy Huskinson, who was president and treasurer of Mississippi Valley Coal Co., is to he submitted by the conservator to Probate Court Judge Joseph Barr next %veek. Mr. Huskinson has been a patient in an Alton hospital for more than a year. Highest bid received Wednesday for the 11-room residence at 203 E. Twelfth St. was $11,000 (or possibly $12,000). The bid was made by Paul Hutchins, 2025 Washington Ave., and is far below the appraised price of the home, $20,000. C. J. Schlosser, conservator of the estate, is to confer Saturday with Schaefer O'Neill, attorney for the conservator, on what recommendation they will make to 1he court on approval of the sale. Schlosser and O'Neill told the Telegraph today they had not decided yet on the question of approving the offered price which both pointed out 'is considerably below the appraisal price." At one time the Huskinson home was appraised at $30,000. In recent years, the demand for large homes has declined and, in recent months, the prices on older houses in general has declined. Bert Ritchey, auctioneer, sold furnishings in the home this week for what the conservator termed "a good price." Sales of furnishings brought a total of $1,926, which is also subject to court approval. There were some 75 persons at the auction—but after the furniture was sold, the buyers had dwindled to three or four. The bidding on the house started at $4,000, Concerning the pure-base offer- on the house, Attorney O'Neill told the Telegraph, "Usually the court will not approve the sale unless the house brings at least two- thirds of the appraisal, except un- The ballooned price of the older house Is deflating, according to the Wall Street Journal and a local check of the situation shows that this area follows the national trend as It was reported. In Alton, according to sovcrnl major real estate firms polled by the Telegraph, . the decline in prices of older houses Is from 5 to 10 percent. New construction is steady in price, however. The reason for new house price firmness, said one realtor, Is that costs of labor and material are the same -high. "I think new construction In this area is even ahead of last, year," the realtor said. "But Alton is still behind In new construction because people have been holding off in the hope that material and labor costs will drop. I would say some have been holding off for 10 years. They have hoped the costs will be less but each year, instead, the costs have gone up even more." Reports of an Edwardsville abstract firm, and records of the county recorder's office, indicate a continuing brisk real estate trade in the county. "Madison County transfers are above the national and state trends," said the firm's spokesman ."The business in our county is stronger than ever, judging from the number of abstracts sought. In the East, the number has declined 10 percent, which is in sharp contrast to the increase in this courity. Also, borrowing has increased, as indicated by the greater number of chattel mortgages, for purchase of such articles as television sets, refrigerators, and such 'heavy' goods. Madison County is in a unique position .apparently due to the continued high employment which in part comes from defense contracts." At the office of Recorder of Deeds Harry T. Hartman, it was said that April so far has shown an increase in recordings, which reflect transfers of real estate. Of the 80 entries made since April 1, 27 have been deeds filed, showing realty transfers, which is a high percentage, the recorder said. Real estate business continues brisk in the face of a decline in marriages in the county. Reports at the office of County Clerk Eulalia Hotz showed 1,655 marriages in 1952, a drop from the 1951 total of 1,778. The first quarter of this year showed 331 marriages in the county, a drop of 27 from the total for the same period last year. The Wall Street Journal canvass showed, nationally, that: the number of used houses on the market is up sharply from a year ago—as much as 30 per cent higher in a few cities. It takes longer to sell a house this year—despite generally lower prices. The extra-large house, the two- bedroom house, and the dwelling over 30 years old are the hardest to sell. The three-bedroom, Statistics for 1952 Show 40% Increase Over 1951 der certain conditions I don't know what the conservator's policy will be. We will discuss it Saturday." two-bath dwelling, of late prewar or postwar vintage, finds buyers more readily. The decline in prices still leaves them relatively stratospheric compared with prewar, of course. Whatever the supply-demand theorizing, the cross-co»ntry interviews clearly shosv there are far more older houses on the market for sale now than last spring. And they are moving more slowly. Marital dissolutions through decrees entered In Alton City Court Increased about 40 per cent during 1352, according to a tabulation recently prepared by Court Clerk Boschert. for the statistical bureau of Illinois Department of Public Health. * The term "marital dissolution" is employed by the statistical agency to cover legal separations either by divorce or annulment, and In the Alton court last year 133 divorces and three annulments were recorded. Total Up 30 This is an increase of 3fl dissolutions over the figure of 97 in 1951. and was the highest total in four or more years, Boschert noted. Actually last year's total of divorces and annulments, despite the sharp increase, is far from a notably high one when old-time court records are taken into account. Back in the 30's, yearly divorce totals here in excess of 200 were common. Into the early 40's, and late 30's, it is recalled, the annual divorce figure 1 in the local court: averaged about 225. A reason for the higher show- Ing in marital separations here 10' years and more ago was recalled today by Clerk Boschert. •* In 1942, he said, the Supreme Court made a rather sweeping decision which had the effect of curtailing more closely the jurisdiction of' city courts to the territorial area o£ the municipality they served. In effect, it was ruled the city court was limited to suits in which the cause of action had arisen or occurred within the territorial area. A falling off in the number of divorce suits filed in the local court followed. And this decision was accentuated by World War n conditions including the still effective federal Soldiers and Sailors Relief Art which prevents hearing of suits against persons in military service unless they sign a waiver of the provisions to permit an immediate trial. Years Compared When the State Health Department recently called on Clerk Boschert for a report on the number of marital dissolutions in the Alton court last year it inclosed with the return form a copy of its state-wide statistical report for the three prior years, 1951 back through 1949. Divorces granted In Aiton City Court seem to be averaging about one-sixth of the county totals, and about one-fourth of the Circuit Court figures. The state report shows the number of dissolutions in each of the courts of Madison County — Alton and Granite City City Courts, and Circuit Court at Edwardsville, as follows : .

Sailor Tom Sharkey Dies at 79, Was Last of Old-Time Greats In American Boxing History 19.')1 07 125 -101 SAN FRANCISCO /P — Tom Sharkey, 79, barrel-chested battler who was the last of the prize ring greats of the 1890s, died today. The game little slugger, who had won $250,000 fighting John L. Sullivan, Jim Corbett, Bob Fitzsimmons and others, died broke — but not forgotten. He had been in San Francisco City and County Hospital since August, 1952. His friends'— fighters, promoters, old-time newsmen and followers — chipped in to pay his expenses. Doctors said Sharkey "died easily in his sleep" at 3:15 a. m. He was admitted Jan. 31 for the tenth time for treatment of a heart ailment. His death rang down the curtain on a long-gone era of pugilism. It followed closely Jeffries'—Sharkey's greatest rival — who died in Los Angeles March 3. Never Held Title, Sharkey never won a title, but he slugged it out with the best in 11 years in the ring, starting in 1893. He used to boast that he was "afraid of no man — none ever made me take a backward step." The cocky, Irish-born boxer stood 5 feet, 8V 2 inches and in fighting trim weighed between 180 and 185 — about 30 pounds less than most of his heavyweight* "rivals. In 54 fights, he scored 35 knockouts and was knocked out only once — by Fitzsimmons in 1900. Four years before he won on an eight-round foul by Fitz. The same year he fought a four- round draw with Corbett and a three-round no-decision bout with Sullivan. In 1899, he lost a close 20-round decision to the champion, Jeffries, and won on a ninth-round foul by Corbett. That led to his biggest battle, a 25-round title match with Jeffries at Coney Island, Nov. 3, 1899. Jeffries was tallow, heavier and had a longer reach, but Sharkey stood up under his heaviest blows for the tialt Ordered On Low-Rent Housing Plans u».

Civilians WASHINGTON .T» — Russia has notified the United Stales that North Korean authorities "are taking measures to release" seven American civilians seized nearly three years ago at the outbreak of hostilities. The State Department said North Korean authorities also liave sent word through Russia that three other Americans, including a Catholic bishop, are dead and three others missing. sion. Started In Navy Sharkey started his ring career in the U. S. Navy, running up a string of 14 knockouts at Honolulu in 1893. He retired in 1904 after a six-round, no-decision bout with Jack Munroe in Philadelphia. He had 'saved his purses and opened a luxurious saloon in New York. But his fortune dwindled with bad investments and horse race losses. U. S. Marshals Forces to Back Ike's Challenge By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON /P—The United States marshaled its far - flung diplomatic and . information services today to build world-wide sup port for President Eisenhower's new peace challenge to Russia. Ambassadors and ministers in 70-odd countries were instructed to call to the attention of the govern ments to which they are assignee the President's address before the American Society of Newspaper Editors here Thursday. They were expected to empha size the pronouncement as a majo foreign policy declaration of the new Eisenhower administration.

The first Russian reaction to th speech was hardly favorable. Th Communist party paper Pr.'ivd louse Committee Cuts Deeply Into Budget * Requests WASHINGTON /P _ The House Appropriations Committee today rdered a halt to the government's ow-rent housing program as it cut ceply Into the 1954 budget re- uests of 23 federal agencies. Its action, if sustained by Congress, also would start getting the ;overnment out of the mortgage .nd housing "business by ordering t to dispose of home mortgages it ow holds and to refund local hous- ng bonds held by the Public Hous- ng Administration. By committee arithmetic 61 per ent or $721,423,697 was lopped rom original Truman budget estimates of $1,172,444,190 but some Democrats described much of the cut as "phony." ^ In the same category was a large part of an additional $1,945,472,000 the commit- ee claimed would pour into the Treasury as a result of its recommendations. In some, but not all, cases the Truman budget was revised downward by the new administration. Reduces New Money The bill's total in new money for use during the fiscal year starting next July 1 was $451,020,493, a reduction of $542,516,350 from what the same agencies received for the present fiscal year. Largest reductions from amounts requested by former President Truman in his January budget were in funds for the Civil Service Commission and for stockpiling critical and strategic materials. Democrats claimed, the committee's denial in full of a request for 188 million dollars lo acquire strategic and critical materials is a "phony" saving, since the money probably will have to be put up later. The committee said the general services administration, which handles the stockpiling program, will have an unobligated balance of around 457 million dollars on June 30 and can finance its 1954 program from that fund. The balance is from money appropriated in past years hut not yet spent because the materials to be stockpiled haven't been available. If the program contemplated by Congress is lo be carried out.

The agreement came less than 15 hours after the U. N. told the Reds it was ready to reopen the talks, providing the Reds do no stalling on the exchange of prisoners -the last big obstacle to an armistice. The. UN had asked for the Halson meeting Saturday to work out details for starting the new talks, The Reds, however, suggested U a. m. Sunday (8 p. m. CST Satur* day). The U. N. agreed. Allied spokesmen said the liaison groups probably would do little more than discuss the technical details of resuming full-scale armistice talks. A spokesman for Vice Adffi, John C. Daniel, chief of the U. V, liaison group, said a letter agreeing to resume talks was .given to the Communists today.

In sharp contrast to the past three days, no Red supply trucks streamed southward over the route of prisoner convoys. "Not a thing is moving on It right now except the convoy trucks —we couldn't even see an ox ca*t or people walking on the road," said 1st Lt. Keith C. McClain of Miami, Ariz. A U. N. letter delivered to the Reds at Panmunjom Friday pro posed: 1. That U. N. and Communist liaison officers meet as early as Saturday to make arrangements for full-scale negotiations. 2. That Switzerland be named the neutral nation to take custody of prisoners who refuse repatriation. 3. That these prisoners remate in Korea arid be "released to the custody of the neutral state."

Under the Allied plan, representatives of Svvitxerland would visit the U. N. prison camps in South Korea and interview 50,000 who have refused repatriation.
