Mm TWO ALTON BVBN1NO TKLBORAPH MONDAY, AtWit tl, IMI Nursing School Graduates 29 '4 Bishop O'Connor Gives i Students Diplomas '. Bishop William A. O'Connor of Springfield comitipndpdl graduates 6f St. Joseph's Hospital School of Cursing for their hard work, their perseverance In sticking it out dtir- Inf their long period of training tnd for the contributions they will inake to the air.k in the future, at commencement excrdsps in St. Patrlck'U Church Sunday. He also commented that the class 0f 29, IncNWtng five young men, fras the largest to be graduated from the school of nursing since he had been bishop of the Springfield Diocese. The address was made by the Very Rev, Comerford J. O'Malley, C. M., president of De Paul University, Chicago. ( Father O'Malley said in part: "You finish your nursing education Or at least part of it which qualifies Jrou for a career of service, at a time when straight thinking and courageous action are demanded of every adult no matter what bis vocation or avocation. Some may say that the wars of the past 30 years have uprooted man's traditional reliance on basic principles of thought and conduct; that atomic science and all the other marvelous discoveries of the medical and technological sciences have jolted our trust in things we accepted as self-evident, or at least worthy of acceptance. "This Christian view of man seems to be quickly disappearing from the minds of the generality of people. "All the confused thinking about euthanasia, sterilization, birth control, is attributable to the fact that even the Christian world has abandoned its hold on fundamentals of the natural and" divine law, and has substituted expediency, scn- timentallity or a rationalized paganism. People simply refuse to come to grips with the elementary factors involved in these problems. If we accept the traditional Christian definition of man as a creature of God, "endowed" as our Constitution says, wilh "certain inalienaJbe rights"; really and substantially distinct from the animal kingdom by reason of his spiritual and immortal soul; made for eternity and not for time, then our^ anwers to the problems of euthanasia and sterializaton, will be quite different from that of the individual or group of individuals who would reduce man to the place of the beast, and who dispose of God as the creation of a universal phobia which has haunted mankind these many ages. "It is a privilege for you graduates of Ibis second ' half-century to join your efforts to that intelligent, Informed Christian body of men who have it in their power to refashion the world, dissipate confusion of thought, and by y out- steadfast and courageous action and example 1o bring suffering humanity the kind of service founded on a deep appreciation of the patient as a child of God and an heir to heaven." Conferring of the diplomas was by Bishop O'Connor and choral selections were by the Oblate Novices of Immaculate Heart of Mary Novititate of Godfrey. Following the program a tea was held in Marial hall in honor of the graduates, their relatives and friends. A crowd that overflowed the church witnessed the exercises. Telegraph Gets Continued From 1'age 1. baseball as the national pastlime," Publisher J. G. Taylor .Spink, expressed his gratitude, and briefly traced the struggle of his paper through the days of World War J. I nU|iie In Field Today The Sporting News is unique in the newspaper field, due to the indelatigable efforls of "Mr. Baseball", as the frl-yoar-old Spink is known. To the college students present Mr. Spink gas'e some typical Spink advice, in the voice and phrase for which he is noied: "If'you young fellows go into newspaper work as \ou now plan, remember this: Success won'I come any easier to you than il has to u». You'll have to work hard, harder than you've ever worked. When 1 inherited The Sporting News from my father (the late Charles C. Spink 1 it was more like getting a bear than a cashbox. If you didn't feed it and care for it, it would consume you...And that's what you will have to do if you expect to get along in this profession." The twai-ds ceremony followed the Annual dinner of Delta Sigma Chi. Present »lso were working reporters and editors from St. UuiU and Illinois newspapers and heads of public relations (inns.

French Voters Turn Backs On DC Gaulle''s 'Rally' Sunday PARTS /P French voters turned their hacks on On. Charles de Gaulle's Rally of the French People in municipal elections Sunday. Al Ihe same lime, Ihe Communists just about held Iheir own in (ho working class districts of Ihe big cities, but, lost; votes nnd control of some town halls in rural areas. The biggesl. gainers from Ihe rebuff lo Ihe Rally of the French People were independents who had rallied around the name of former Premier Anloine Pinay. During his term of office, Pinay made a determined and well publicized effort to hold down prices that won him great personal \popularity. The Gaullisls have been hampered by the general's refusal to cooperate with other anti-Communist parties. The sharp loss of RPF influence had been freely predicted. Returns still were being tabulated today, and few final results were available. The incomplete figures, however, confirmed the main trends. The elections named some 46K,- 800 municipal councillors. These councillors will elect the mayors of the 37,983 cities, towns villages and hamlels throughout the nation. These are the real grass roots offices of France. The municipal councils control local improvements, Ihe fire and police departments and other purely municipal affairs. l The councillors arc elected under a complicated .system thai calls for a second round of voting next Sunrlay in many of the smaller towns. Candidates who did not receive an absolute majority Sunday will be considered again next week, when a relative majority will be enough for election. This system does not apply in the larger cities. J. A, Kinery Services Are Set for Tuesday Funeral services lor J. A. Km- cry, 7f>, former Allonian, \\ho died Saturday at Kalama/.oo, Mich., \\ill be conducted at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at Si roper funeral home, Allon. Burial will be in I'pper Alton cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home. ( n.wilfil OK Koatl Charles I,. Knapp of .'ill N. Drive, Mast Alton, complained lo police HI '2 a.m. Sunday that his car had been forced to swerve off the pa\e- ment of Ccniral A\e., at Ihe cur\e near Si. Antlioii.\'s lnlii inary \\ben another automobile encroached on his side of the road. Knapp secured Ihe license number of the olher car which he referred to the police lor investigation. Truce Talks Continued trum Puge 1. captivity of the^ captured personnel endlessly or until that day, when exhausted and discouraged, the> are forced to accept the fact that there is no alternative to endless captivity?" At the outset Harrison berated Nam for the Communist refusal to accept the Allied plan to make Switzerland the neutral stale which would take custody of balking prisoners while still keeping them in Korea. "You implied," Harrison said. "that we nominated Switzerland in order that it would represent outside alone rather than to serve in the role of a true neutral. Your i argument f . . is groundless." i Allied Reward Offered Pilots ForMIGJet TOKYO /P- The Allied High Command tonight: offered $100.000 to Ihe firsl Communist flier to land his Russian-fnarie jet in South Korea, a move designed to undermine morale of the Red Air Force. Radio appeals and leaflets carried Ihe message in the Russian Chinese and Korean languages. In a move unprecedented in the Korean War. the command promised politicaj asylum for the first flier to come over and any others who would follow. Those who follow would get $50,000. An official announcement said the offer was made to get "invaluable technical intelligence" lo sow distrust and suspicion in the Communist Air Force. Show Polish Pilot The leaflets dropped in North Korea carried a ^holograph of Franciszek .Tarewski, a Polish jet pilot who flew his MIG1") to Denmark and was given political asylum only recently. The official announcement said Unit the Air Force hoped to get the same results as ground forces have had in Iheir surrender leaflet campaign. "The enemy," said Ihe announcement, "has found it necessary to send out patrols to watch other ground reconnaissance patrols to keep individuals from surrendering lo United Nations Command forces. , . "In the same way. officers of the Far Kast Command believe the present operation should reduce the combat effectiveness of the Communist Air Force. . . "Henceforth, a MIG flight leader should be- even more concerned lest his own flight shoot him down ami escape. He will tend to be wary about Ihe pilots in hi* flight and they may distrust each other " are Hying MlGs in the Korean There was no explanation of why the leaflets and broadcasts also were in the Russian language. There have been repeated reports, however, that some Russian pilots are flying OIGs in Ihe Korean War. The offer was broadcast over Ihe Allied radio The Air Force showered North Korea wilh leaflets announcing the offer. The flier also was offered "political asylum and resettlement in a non-Communist country." While the hrst flier would get $100.000. all other fliers following suit would receive $50,000. The announcement gave the route to be followed and suggested (he pilots fly at about 20,000 feet presumably to avoid the risk of being shot 'down by Allied planes on their flight to surrender. The command suggested the pilots fly first lo Faengyong, an island off the West Coast, and then to Kirnpo Air Base near Seoul. The command conceded that the offer, unprecAlented in the Far Kast Command, was part of psychological warfare campaign but said the "resultant technical knowledge would be invaluable." By .fAtft Bfcl.t, WASHINGTON /P Several fop- ranking Republicans and Democrats, Including Sen. Taft <R- Ohio), agreed today with Sen. Byrd (D-Va) thai the Elsenhower administration can balance the next flucal year's budget. fiut there was a wide difference Of views about the Virginia senator's proposal that Congress keep excess profits and Individual income taxes at present high levels until July 1, .1954. to gel the revenue Byrd said would be needed. Taft, Republican leader, said in an interview he agrees wilh Byrd that the budget can he balancer). But he declined to discuss details Of the Virginian's week-end proposal to trim $6,800,000.000 off Truman's spending program. Taft has called for a cut of about four billion dollars In defense and about 2'i billion in foreign aid. Byrd would keep defense spending at its present level and cut foreigVi aid 52,900,000,000. Sen. George (D-Ga) said he believes a cut of six billion or more can be renll/ed "without crippling the defense program or destroying the foreign aid program." But ho didn't see much chance of keeping taxes at present levels. Reports that the Klsonhower administration will recommend a substantial slash in atomic development funds stirred up controversy. Sen. Ilickenlooper (R-Iowa) said- in an interview: "I don't believe Ihe appropriation can be cut below the budget without hurting the program. It's the one field where I think we have a minimum budget for essential needs." Peter S.

Some unofficial death estimates ran as high as 10. • One hundred children were reported injured in Aso's first eruption In 20 years. The youngsters were on an expedition inside the lS*mile-wide great crater of 5,287-foot Mt. Aso on Kyushu, Japan's southernmost ! island. j They were looking Into one of ' five volcanic peaks inside the gap- Ing crater when it awakened with a smoking roar, blasting rocks | wildly into the air. Some were the size of a man's head. The children fled lit terror. The newspaper Nishl Nippon said the blast camt from 4,339-foot Naka Dake Crater, one of the five peaks. ^ Full eruption of the entire crater apparently took place in pre-his' toric days, and only minor eruptions In some of the five peaks are recorded in Japanese annals Karly II.

Radar Traffic Control Looms Tests in Local Area Nearly Complete Radar is going into regular use for control of speeding, and motor* ists should take due warning that the invisible rays from the "little black box" may be recording the movement of their cars, Police Chief Oalloway announced today. Saturday, said Galloway, the traffic squad made the first regular use of radar for a check-up on speeders, and its use was resumed today. Thus far, said the chief, arre«t« by Issuance of "tickets" have not been called for, except in Instances of flagrant violations. But this "courtesy period" !s nhont over and the next step will he full- fledged enforcement with the new equipment, and a court summons for every violator of speed limits. Traffic Sgt. Browrrsaid a number of warnings were given motorists going too fast, but that only one vehicle made such excessive speed than an arrest ticket wa» given the driver. Others topping the limit were warned. Saturday's test enforcement, Galloway revealed, was made on I State St. at a point where motorists tend to forget how fast they were traveling. For today, he said. , speeding checks were planned at J several other locations on a list that won't be revealed until the day had ended.
