Texas Eastern originated this procedure for natural gas pipelines to help obtain top operating efficiency. NATURAL GAS FOR CONSUMERS. By running "piga" through its pipelines, Texas Eastern increases the amount of natural gas it can deliver daily to homes and.industries. This method was a major rea- aon why lexaa Eastern was ablo durinR 1951 to add 9 million cubic feet a day to its delivery capacity. Horo a "pig" is lowered from a truck to be fitted tightly into the pipe. Once inside it will scrub tho pipeline's interior walls mid remove liquids and particles of dirt TO INCREASE DELIVERIES OF NATURAL GAS TEXAS EASTERN PIONEERS METHOD OF KEEPING INSIDE OF PIPELINES CLEAN • "Pigs" Travel 102,000 Miles in 5 Years to Increase Capacity of Transmission Lines Texas Eastern delivered enough extra natural gas in 1951 to supply the domestic gas needs of a city of 200,000 people for a full year. This additional gas was made available to consumers as a result of new procedures developed, by Texas Eastern for cleaning the inside of natural gas pipelines while they 01*6 In operation. "Pigs" are inserted into the pipelines "in stream" with the gas to travel from station to station, cleaning the Inside of the pipe so that natural gas will flow more smoothly. Propelled by gas pressure, the "pigs" travel between compressor stations at about 15 miles an hour. The scrapers push ahead of them liquids and particles of dirt which are removed from the lines through specially designed gas scrubbers. During 1951," Texas Eastern's "pigs" travelled 17,853 miles. In five years, they have cleaned the inside of more than 102,000 miles of pipe to achieve and maintain the efficiency of Texas Eastern pipelines,' AFTER LAUNCHING the "pig," the prew travels ahead of it to next compressor station to remove the scraper and residue it has collected. In this picture two crew members release gas from a recovery trap before openingit. In five years, "pigs" have travelled through Texas Eastern pipelines a distance equal to more than four times around the earth.

C., by the railroad unions. Says Labor: "The 19 unions composing our league are unanimous in their support of Governor Mc- Malh . . . Always he has been on the side of the people — honest business, agriculture, labor. The voters of Arkansas should give him another term in the governor's office and then send him to the senate of the United States." It is presumed this labor league I has already held a caucus of its' members and presenls a united front in the Arkansas gubernatorial primary. If this is true, why go through the motions of holding a direct vote of, the people? These folks want a nominating convention, not a primary. They scream for a primary for President, where there isn't any;- but at the state level, where primaries do exist, they adopt the sleam-roller methods of a convention. Fortunately for democracy, organizational endorsements are mofe of a liability than an asset. Not that a candidate and a cause don't, want every vote they oan possibly get. But the fact is, human nature rebels against dictation which takes away the one power that defines the citizen of a republic — the right to vote freely and secretly. This was recognized for years by the nation's oldest labor organization, the American Federation of Labor, which did its best to unite its members behind legislative measures, but forbid the endorsement of any candidate. Here in Arkansas the guber- miles northeast of here on U. S. Highway .67, headed in opposite directions. The first struck al :1 p.m. (CST); Ihe second at 4:05.

H Newton, U. S. Weather Bureau chief here as "heading in the wrong direction," dipped down into the tiny Miller County community of Rondo.

Both sergeants arc headquarters staff recruiters of the Marine Corps Southern Recruiting Area. natorial campaign poses questions lor. individual railroad unionists which the distant committee in Washington, D. C., scarcely know about, and which makes their endorsement of McMath contradictory. For instance, all labor is oppos- ; ed to any increase in the Arkansas state sales tax. And yet Governor : McMath exerted every possible pressure in the 1951 regular session of the legislature to increase i the sales tax from 2 to 3 per cent; and when he failed, called the legislators back into special session the same spring — only to fail again. Labor's magazine "endorsement" of McMath for a third term doesn't square with the rank- and-file reaction of labor to his tax program. And of course there are a host of strictly Arkansas issues, such as highway maintenance and state management, which are as important to the individual unionist here in his home state as the national issues are to the Washing' ton D. C., folks who gave McMath their blessing. After all, this is an Arkansas election for Arkansas people. Let's cross each bridge only as we come to it. The way it looks to me : some of the high labor brass in Washington are trying to get them' •selves a United States senator be< lore Arkansas gets a governor — but it's the governorship on which we're voting this year . . . perhaps the question of a higher sales tax, too. heavy damage to nearby timber stands. Newton said the cone of the second twister was 25 to 50 yards wide and held whole trees and debris in its grip as it sped across the airport. "Tornadoes usually move from southwest to northeast," Newton said "but this second twister was coming out of the southeast into the northwest. It suddenly swerved in the middle of the field and took oft toward Rondo." Newton said it was not known where the second tornado struck first, but added that it probably hit in the timber country south of here. Chief Deputy Sheriff Tillman Johnson of Miller County said that timber damage was etensive in the vicinity of Rondo. The first tornado destroyed a hangar, valued at $7,500, at the airport and littered the field with uprooted trees and debris. Newton said that as ihe storm approached the field, a Central Airlines plane took off and evaded the high winds. He said an American Airlines plane started to land, but saw the approaching storm and stayed aloft until the twister passed over the field. Telephone service was disrupted in Texarkana, and rain measuring 1.25 inches fell in the city. General Rain in State, But Drouth Clings By The Associated Press Arkansas' parched countryside has been dampened by the first general rain in 57 days, accompanied in some parts by windstorms. But the drouth isn't broken yet. Two tornadoes left a trail of destruction amounting to several thousand dollars at Tcarkana, Ark., yesterday. No injuries were reported. If nothing else, the rains — hea-v- iest in West Arkansas — brought a temporary relief from the summer heat wave. Temperatures across the state yesterday were all in the 80's, with the exception of Newport, which registered 92. Agricultural officials said the rains were not heavy enough or of long enough duration to break the state's drouth or to aid the burned crops. The U. S. Weather Bureau at Little Rock reported today that the rains will continue for the next two days, accompanied by lower than normal temperatures and thunderstorms. Danville had the most rain yesterday, 2.15 inches. Other rainfall included Aplin, 1.97; Bluff City, 1.94; Jessieville, 1.59; Clarksville, 1.53; Boughton, 1.52; Glenwood, 1.42 Oden, 1.40, and Texarkana, 1.26. first time he was hospitalized since he took office more than seven years -ago.

The first lady who had spent 10 days in Independence with her ailing mother, declined lo discuss the President's health, but allowed photographs to be taken.

"But I don't think they're going to pick anyone from the South," he added. Tindall said that "a somewhat similar stiuation" would exist in the November vote for governor of Arkansas. He said that GOP candidate Jeff Speck of Frenchman's Bayou would have a better chance against some of the five men seeking the Democratic nom- i ination than he would against others, but he wouldn't say -whom b.e hoped would be nominated. A state headquarters will be opened here soon and a steering committee will be named for tne campaign Tindall said.

I.'s released since the start of the Korean War to re-establish themselves in civilian life. The benefits arc much the same as those granted to veterans after World War II, but there are some important differences. The act provides the now veterans with money for education and training, mustering out pay, unemployment payments of $28 a week up to a total of 26 weeks, and financial support for home and business loans. The bill was one of 37 Truman signed yesterday while in Walter Reed Hospital for a checkup. The program is expected to cost about one billion dollars a year. The number of eligible veterans on May 31 was 870,000 and the Veterans Administration said the total is growing daily. To be eligible, a veteran discharged after June 27, 1950, must have served 90 days or more. The discharge must be other than dishonorable. The biggest change from the World War II G. I. Bill is in the method of handling payments and in the type of schools veterans may attend. Congress wrote these in as a means of avoiding abuses under the earlier program. Instead of making payments to the schools for the veteran, the government will provide the veteran with funds to pay his own tuition fee, buy books and handle his living epenses. The ex-G.

Graham, expects the President's temperature "may go up a teeny little bit" again this afternoon, as it has been doing since Sunday. Truman had no fever this morning. And, Short added: "Tho President expects to be back in the White House by Saturday." Short emphasized again the Pres ; ident went to j tha hospital not bo cause of his illness but to facilitate running the medical tests Graham wanted to make. Mrs. Truman decided to come home to have a look for herself and to keep the President conv pany. Mrs. Fred Wallace, a sistor-iiv luw, said in Independence, Mo., "The family is not alarmed over his (Truman's) condition," anc that Mrs. Truman was returning "because the family thought Harry might be lonesome.' — President jt was the 08-year-old President's first hospitalization since he en tered the White House April 12 1045.
