V PAOSTWO ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH FRIDAY, APRIL if, !9!l TidelandsBill Faces Stalling First Fflibttrter May Bwrt GOP Congress By ,fAO( WASHINGTON /P Sen. Taft (ItOhlo) today faced the task of breaking a well-organized Senate talkathon If Congress Is to carry out President Eisenhower's campaign promise on oil-rich submerged lands. Taft, the Republican leader, ordered day-and-night Senate sessions next week to counter what some members said and others denied—was the first filibuster to beset the GOP Congress. Despite Tatt's pleas for action on A measure he described as illustrating a "vital difference" between Elsenhower and his Democratic opponent last year, critics continued to talk In the llth day of debate on a bill to establish the states' title to submerged lands within their borders. Action Pledged Eisenhower pledged action on the measure In last year's campaign. Former Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois, the Democratic nominee, supported federal ownership. Sen. Hill (D-Alal, who has denied that any filibuster is underway, planned to continue speaking In opposition for the third day. In 9% hours of talking previously he covered only 14 of 73 pages in a 45,000-word prepared text. Sen. Sparkman (D-Ala), the 1352 Democratic vice presidential nominee, Said he and other opponents Of the measure were carrying on ortly an "educational campaign" in' an effort to arouse enough public interest to defeat the proposal. Me added in an Interview, however, that the group has "no hope or desire to prevent: a vole on the bill"—the usual objective of filibusters. But Sen. Russell (D-Ga), who has captained past filibusters by which Dixie Democrats have blocked action on civil rights legislation, said there is no doubt in hifi mind a filibuster is on. JTm not opposed to educational campaigns," Russell said with a grin. M i believe in free and un- liniited debate in the Senate and am willing to stay here and hear senators speak. Claims Filibuster "However, if the same tactics had been employed by Southern senators in opposing so-called civil rights legislation, the charge already would have been trumpeted through the land that they were engaging in a filibuster." Russell supports the pending bill. The Senate approved a similar measure 53-35 last year, but it was vetoed by former President Truman. When Hill blocked Taft's efforts Thursday to limit debate, the_Ohioan ordered the night sessions. His opponents include some experts on talkathons, such as Mill. They also number some members, such as Sens. Lehman (D-Lib-NY), Humphrey (D-Minn) and Douglas (D-lll), who have been bitter critics of filibusters. These opponents have been meeting secretly, under Hill's leadership, and apparently plan lo force olher senators to listen to their long speeches — a maneuver that sometimes has delayed the Senate for hours while members were being rounded up. At one point Thursday only three senators \\cre listening to Hill. Soviet Press Gives Ike Talk Nice Treatment By RDflV rm.MORK MOSCOW /P The Soviet press reported President Eisenhower's foreign policy speech with unusual speed and a lack of abuse. | Some of the foreign diplomats S in Moscow believe Ihere is a good i chance of some sort of official answer to the President. The more 'optimistic picture Ihe U. S. and j Ihe Soviet Union as on Ihe verge of easing world tension and pos• sibly ,settllng some of their out- I standing differences. i In :10 years of covering Moscow news, this correspondent does not recall any time when Ihe Soviet press acted so quickly as in reporting Elsenhower's address. Pravda appeared wilh its account only a few hours after the President addressed the American Society of Newspaper Editors Thursday. The Soviet press and radio devoted ,'lfil words of report and comment on Eisenhower's speech, in- Idicaling they regard it as an In| (cresting and important statement I on world affairs. j All papers published the same i story- a Tass dispatch from Ne<V York and Moscow radio read the message several times. i Pravda gave II a prominent I place in Us foreign news page. | jusl below an account of t'. N. proceedings. The other papers similarly used it in conspicuous positions. Neither press nur radio praised Ihe President's speech, but neither did they condemn it out of hand. Commenting on it, Tass said Eisenhower in blaming .the Soviet t'nion for" the^nternatlonal situation failed to cite any facts to back up his contention. The dispatch also accused Ihe President of bypassing China and "re-establishment of her nalional rights" and the question of n unified Germany as laid down by the Potsdam agreement. The papers were singularly mild in comment. Durr to Offer Aid in Appeal In Bnlluello Case Students Mark Mai an Victory In South Africa PRETORIA, South Africa .T> — Hundreds of university students waving Republican flags and singing Boer marching SOURS paraded through the streets of this capital city today celebrating Prime Minister Daniel Malan's shattering election victory. Final returns today showed that the stern old ex-preacher's Nationalist forces won 94 of Parliament's 359 seats in Wednesday's voting, giving him a majority of 'M m the lawmaking body. The opposition United party copped 57 seats and its allied Labor party, four. Malan's aides reported that the prime minister has decided to accept a personal invitation from Britain's Queen Eli/abeih II to attend her coronation June 2. The republic - minded Malan's presence at the coronation would he clearly designed to please the Knglish-speakinj,' South Africans. The Nationalists need the backing of the English speaking people to effectively carry out their stern race segregation policies. John Peters Services At Bunker Hill Sunday BUNKKH Ull.I.

Malcolm Durr, who as corporation counsellor under Mayor Linkogle, won a police court conviction against Baltuello, only to see it appealed to County Court, today ac- ceeded to the Telegraph's suggestion that he cooperate with the new city attorney in pressing the case. Though Mayor-elect Struif said he was not: yet ready to announce his selections for appointments, Durr said he understood the new corporation counsellor was lo he Pat. O'Neill, son of former State Rep. Schriofer O'Neill, * "I'll be glad to place at Pat's disposal all the case we've prepared to date," Durr said. Struif, queried by the Telegraph on the matter before Durr was approached, said his administration would welcome such assistance if it were forthcoming. Battucllo, operator of n Hello St. tavern, is president of a stale association of retail liquor dealers which is socking to change the statute making dramshop operators liable in cases where intoxicated persons who bought, drinks from them are injured, or cause injury to other persons or property.

Theft of Lead figs'Solved Our Yoitth, Man Arrrafrrl, Third Stinpert Sottglit Because a youth seen trying to sell some lead bore n prominent scar on the side nf his nose, pollrr j were enabled to make arrest* Tuesday afternoon which, according to Chief Galloway, have solved a theft of about 1,900 pounds of; i lead pigs, valued at J399, from the warehouse of the N. 0. Nelson Co, at 129 Indiana Ave. Theft of the lead was reported last Monday, and in subsequent investigation policemen learned a youth with a peculiar scar on his nose had tried to dispose of some leaden pigs. «* Living in (he vicinity of the Nelson establishment in East End place, police then learned Ihere was a youth with H scar such as had been described. They picked up as | n suspect Eueene Wilbur Stevens. !'2(), of 130 Missouri Ave., whom, police say, made a statement if j admission revealing 'hnt he nnd another youth carried out the burglary Ifisl Saturday nfghl, nnd a third man provided a Jruck in which the lend WHS hauled about Monday until it could be sold. Slate complainls of burglary Ilien was filed by a representative of Ihe N. O. Nelson Co. against SI evens, nnd Fred Elward Johnson 50, of :)S Indiana Ave., who was implicated in the youth's confession as Ihe trucker. Both waived hearings when tflkpn before Police Magistrate Schreiber Thursday evening, and each was held to the grand jury in bond Of $1500. Another youth implicated In the confession apparently eluded police search, and police said today that he apparently had left town on learning Sle.vens was in custody. The story told the police by Slevens revealed that the trio had groat trouble trying To dispose of Ihe lend after it had been stolen, and finally had to melt the pigs in a fire at a remote spot near Woods SI a I ion before a junk dealer would accept It. Several dealers earlier refused the lead pigs suspecting the lend might have been stolen. The pigs, all of '25-pound size wer»' marked wilh Ihe producer's name. Police said that Slevens related that he and a companion gained enlry to Ihe Nelson storage yard by climbing a fence. Ihen unlocked an entrance to carry out ^he lead, after which it was trundled to a temporary hiding plaft? in a wheelbarrow. After Ihe lead was trucked early Monday lo several dealers who refused to buy it, the statement continues, it was moved to Woods Station and melted to give it the appearance of junk. As the molten met si I ran out from the fire, it was chilled wilh water carried in buckets. Then the ash-encrusted- mass tvas hauled to East Allon and sold. The lead after being melted wheighed 885 pounds, according to the admission, and brought $70.50 which was equally divided among Ihe three. A police sergeant and deputy sheriff yesterday took Stevens to Wood Station where be pointed out Ihe remains of the fire where the lead was melted, said Chief Galloway. Probing into Ihe ashes, the policeman and deputy discovered one section of a lead pig which had escancd the head and re- iiuiined intact. It was held as evidence, for it still showed the name stamp of the producing company, an' some markings that enabled a represe^nt- ative of Ihe N. O. Nelson Co. to identify it as part of the loot, he said. The warrants against Stevens and Johnson were issued after the recovery of this bit of evidence at Ihe Woods Station "smelter", Galloway explained.

Discuss Policy In Middle East Dr, Elliott, of Harvard, Princfpia Speaker "Tn working out n national pollry with the Middle Kasf we must carefully consider all alternnHves." stated Dr. William ¥. Elliott, pro- j fessor of political science and history at Harvard University, speaking Thursday at the opening session of the 15th annual Public Affairs Conference at The j Prlnclpia College, Elsah. * Some of the alternatives suggested by t)r. Elliott were: Must we hold the Middle East at all costs? On what terms must we hold it? To hold any part of the Middle East, is it necessary to hold all of it? Could we find some relation to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in Middle East defense? These alternatives were calculated to pose problems for the student delegates to discuss In the commission hearings which began after the opening speech and will continue through Saturday morning. Ninety-nine delegates from other colleges and universities are on The Principia campus for the three-day conference. Dr. Elliott urged a "real realism" for the United Slates — in which we stand ready to hack with considerable action any policy taken in the Middle East. He also spoke hopefully of the new-found nationalism of the Middle East. "We live in a time when peoples of this world realize that we have carried a very heavy burden, but we cannot continue to carry it ttufi Challenge Opening Rmmd Of Pence Plan SINGAPORE P - Adltl son said today Increased trade among tire countries of Soulhetst Asia and a mutual security pact provide the best assurance against the onslaught of Communism In this part of the world. He* told a news conference also that President Eisenhower's speech In Washington Thursday was "an admirable statement of the expression of the American position" on the way to achieve world peace. Stevenson, the unsuccessful candidate of the Democratic party in the last presidential e 1 e ct Ion. summed up his views on Southeast Asia .after concluding a six weeks tour of the area. On Monday he will leave for Bangkok. Rangoon, New Delhi, Karachi and the Middle East. Stevenson has expressed a wait- and-see attitude toward the Soviet peace offensive. without serious detriment to our level of civilization." Dr. Elliott pointed out that the East is the cradle of the great religions of the world. Among them he mentioned Christianity, Hinduism, Moslem and Judaism. National Interest was\defined by Dr. Elliott as "the promotion of a policy which serves to satisfy economic desires, welfare, advantages of a particular country and a particular line of policy." The Public Affairs Conference will end Saturday afternoon, with the summary address being delivered by Dr. Charles Malik, Lebanese delegate to the United Nations General Assembly.
