HILY 8, 1968 ALTON EVENING TELEGftAt*!* MONDAY 8> 1968 Aims at Paris Are Diverse ft By JOHN M. HlGBtOWER AP Special Correspondent PARIS (AP) - The dispute between the United States and North Vietnam over whether they are making progress in the Vietnam peace talks springs from their basic conflict of purposes at this stage of the negotiations. North Vietnam is still trying to maneuver President Johnson into granting a new concession by putting an end to all attacks on North Vietnamese territory. The United States is trying to maneuver Hanoi into making a concession of its own by curtail ing infiltration of troops into South Vietnam. Public opinion all over the world, but especially in the United States, is regarded by each side as a weapon to be used against the other in this struggle. Hanoi, speaking through Ambassador Xuan Thuy and the rest of its negotiating team, obviously regards pessimism as its most effective public opinion lever. The theme which Thuy and his spokesmen have been sounding for weeks is that the talks are making no progress because the United States refuses to stop attacking North Vietnam. The way to move toward peace, they arge, is to end the attacks. On the other hand, U.S. officials have emphasized every indication of movement in the discussions. Their theme has been that in spite of the deadlock slight progress has been made in laying the groundwork for more serious future peace negotiations. Both assessments are based on what has been happening in Paris since the meetings started May 13. There has been much talk but no progress on the question of how to de-escalate the war; there has been some progress in U.S. Ambassador W. Averell Harriman's effort to develop a cordial, informal relationship with Thuy. Harrtman believes this will enable them in coming months to explore secretly the issues of a compromise peace. The difference in interpretation of these two lines of development erupted into open disagreement Friday, U.S. Secretary of Defense Clark M. Clifford had said Thursday there were "bits and straws" which indicated "some movement" at Paris. Secretary of State Dean Rusk, told newsmen in Washington, that he agreed with Clifford. Harriman, leaving for Washington Friday, said "some progress is being made by bits and straws." North Vietnamese spokesman Nguyen Thanh Le told a news conference in Paris, however, that the talks are "marking time." He said the "absence of progress" was due to the refusal of the United States to end afl attacks on North Vietnam so that other subjects could be discussed here. Behind this propaganda battle lies the hard fact that what is ultimately at issue is a question of military advantage. President Johnson has said that the bombing of the North Vietnamese panhandle destroys about 20 per cent of the Communist infiltration of troops and supplies into the South. To end the bombing would, by U.S. estimate, give North Vietnam an important military advantage. On the other hand the United States, from the North Vietnamese point of view, would gain an advantage of great importance if Hanoi substantially curtailed its infiltration into the South. Facilities Planned at Reservoir ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Army Corps of Engineers has accepted a proposal by a group of Carlyle, 111., residents to lease and develop 32 acres of government- owned land at the Carlyte Reservoir main dam. The developers plan to build a commercial boat dock and related facilities near the west abutment of the dam. The development will offer boat and motor rental, boat storage, marine sales and service, bait and tackle sales and food services. Col, Edwin R. Decker, St. LouU district engineer, said the tease will be executed immediately upon completion of tbe nec« etury !w«j>a»tto» procedures - Pilot, 48, Keeps Flyboys Careful By GEORGE MCAttTHUR Associated Press Writer BIEN MOA, VifetMffl (AP) Ruddy-faced Colver Jones Is not. just a pilot, lie's a cockpit phi losopher—twice as old fts many of his flying mates and something of a legend. Peering over an undisciplined auburn mustache, the 48-year- old captain fixes young helicopter pilots with a baleful stare and warns: "There is no such thing as an old, bold pilot." In Vietnam, however, there are plenty of young, bold pilots and Jones is dedicated to seeing that they age gracefully. Having flown with a gunship company in Vietnam four years jo, Jones is now ending his second tour as a pilot with the 20th Engineer Brigade. The en- jineer pilots fly cargo and liaison missions, haul dignitaries and command officers around and maintain courier flights throughout the Mekong Delta. It sounds safe enough but nothing is really safe in Vietnam. Jones recalls a routine ferry mission to Saigon's airport one morning when the chopper ;aking off just ahead got caught in a burst of fire from a sudden skirmish on the ground—one crewman was killed with a bullet in the head. 'I always try and tell the new silots with us to forget about all ihose wild combat stories and start fresh. There are no more nstructors out here. You start learning from right now. "It's a funny thing. I never met a kid who wouldn't listen." They listen, perhaps, because Colver Jones Is known as "The Pox." In 25 years of flyifig he has had only one major acd- dent, and he walked away from that one. That was & decade ago during a stint flying surveying planes for the engineers in Alaska. A submerged bit of thawing tun dra ripped the floats from his light plane during a landing. In Vietnam, he has never had a bullet hole. Jones qualified as a glider pi lot with the old Army Air Corps in World War II but never left the States. He did a hitch as an aviation machinist in the Navy, rejoined the Army Reserves and came back in service for good to fly in Korea for the Army. His battered flight log now numbers 4,900 hours and Jones points out most of these came in short hops—bush flying and the like—and not the lengthy flights of Air Force fliers. After 19 years in the Army and nearing the end of his time in Vietnam, Jones is looking forward to picking up his wife and three children in Texas City, Tex., for his next job. ROOF REPAIRS OR NEW ROOFS CALL GERSMAN I GO. Our 17th Year In Alton 2843 E. Broadway. 465-C711 Ph. D. at Rocfeefetter V. A Different School By JOHN ftARBODR AP Newsfeatares Writer NEW YORK (AP) - It happened on a rare day in an ordinary June full of graduation. Twenty-one unusual students followed their learned faculty down the tree-shaded walk to Caspary Auditorium. No massed thousands in caps and gowns. No jammed football stadium or brass band. No pickets. No red white and blue bunting. No red white and blue speeches. Only 21 young scholars taking the last steps toward their doctor of philosophy degrees. For all of them, it ended as it began — with taste and style a la Rockefeller. It happened early this month. The graduating class was nearly all Phi Beta Kappa or Its scientific counterpart Sigma XI. The graduates walked double file, led and flanked by the faculty of Rockefeller University. The faculty outnumbers the student body nearly 4 to 1, includes four Nobel Prize winners and other academic lights. i The procession matched informally, not to the strains of "Pomp and Circumstance," but to selections by the 18th century English composer Anthony Hoi- borne, played for this occasion by a quintet, the Venetian Brass. In the dome-shaped auditorium, the procession stepped down the black carpeted center aisle between rows of plush red seats, students and teachers taking places on stage. There was no formal speech, no fancy rhetoric. Instead, each faculty sponsor presented his student candidate. He spoke of him by his first or familiar name, talked of his research, its roots in scientific history, its aim for the future. The professor recalled the successes and disappointments over the years they worked together, remembered their first meeting, or the patience of a student's wife, or the student's first confrontation with a laboratory mouse, or the quirks and habits only friends get to know. It was all reflective of the close, constant interaction in tfiis unique university on the East ftivef, four city blocks of the best money can buy. For some, leaving Rockefeller is difficult. For others, it is regretful, but an opening to the fu ture. For all of them Rockefeller University was a unique expert ence. Classes were small, rarely more than three students, when there were classes at all. Most reaching is done on a tutorial on-to-one basis, teacher and student. Most of the faculty are researchers, not teachers per se. Anything they need is produced on the university grounds.

IN THE TELEGRAPH Story on Wood River Featured In History Society Journal SPRlNGFlELDi ffl. ^ (Spec- al) — Five articles about Illinois people and events In the stateliool period of a century and a half dgo are featured in he curpjfit issue of the Journal of the imnols State Historical Society. One coriceras Wood liver and the Lewis and Clark expedition. Jo*n 1) ttager, winner of the .9ftco8 Illinois Sesquicentennial 2ommls'3ton fellowship for graduate study in Illinois history, is author of the first article, "The America 1 Fur Company and the Chicago of 1812-1835." Hager who ifi continuing his studies at Loyola University, Chicago, shows how John Jacob Astor's organization controlled the economic and social life of Chicago during that early period. In the second article, "Wood ver, 1803-1804,," the author, Robert W Mayer, Icocates the >resent sfte of the Illinois camp of the l«wis and Clark expedition. By the use of maps, notes and surveys, he found that the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers had shifted their courses in the Intervening 164 years so that the location, which was on the Illinois side of the Mississippi opposite the month of the Missouri, is now on the Missouri side well above the confluence of the two rivers. Mayer, now a professor of finance at the University of Illinois at Urbana, became interested in the location of the Lewis and Clark site when he was a Boy Scout. Two prominent early Illinois- ans, Edward Coles, second governor of the state, and Sidney Breese, U.S. senator and s'tate Supreme Court justice, are the subjects of the magazine's next two articles. Donald S. Spencer, a graduate stu'lont at the University of Virginia, wrote "Edward Coles: Virginia Gentleman in Frontier Politics." Coles was elected governor in 1822 when he received Home of ....

Then, in 1824, he successfully headed a (iampnign against a state constitutional convention that would have legalized slavery in Illinois. After these two victories he >ecame the forgotten man of Illinois poMtics and, in 1832, re- ired to Philadelphia where he spent the rest of his life. The author concludes that Coles 'was a man of the highest in- egrity and principle but these qualities were not much admired in frontier politics." John W. McNnlty, a Chicago attorney with a Ph.D. in history from Harvard University, discusses "Sidney Breese: Ills Early Career In Law and Politics in Illinois." Breesa came to Illinois from upstate New York in 1818 at the age of 18. The next year he was licensed to practice law. His earliest claim to fame was that in 1820 he used a horse and Walter* Tom-Boy Alton (ADVERTISEMENT) wagon to move the s t a t § archives from Kaskaskia to Vandalia, the new capital — a dls* tance of a hundred miles. Another early highlight Of Breese's career was the publi* cation of "Breese Reports, 1819* 1831," a record of the decisions of the state Supreme Court from its first session. He became a member of the state Supreme Court in 1841. Two years later he was elected to the U.S. Senate for one term. In 1857 he was returned to the Supreme Court where he served until his death in 1878. During this period Breese made himself "the most important figure in the judicial history of the state," according to McNulty. "Freemasonry Comes to Minds" is the title of the fifth Historical Society magazine article. Its author, Alphonse Cerza, is a Chicago attorney, 33rd degree Mason and Shriner. The author states lhat George Rogers Clark, when he captured Kaskaskia in 1778, wag the first known Freemason to come to Illinois.
