It has been said the liquid helium may provide the passkey to outer space. Using this liquid, metals can be cooled to within a few degrees of absolute zero —more than 400 degrees below the freezing point of water. And at these temperatures, some metals conduct electricity so well that a metallic coil weighing less than a pound can generate an electromagnetic field that would require equipment weighing several tons at normal temperatures. Manufacturers of atomic reactors use helium gas as a leak detector. Fabricating industries weld metals in a helium atmosphere. Doctors mix nonflammable helium with anestthetiCs to prevent operating room explosions. At the National Archives in Washington, helium filled cases prevent the decay of the most precious documents in American history — the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. The government has undertaken a conservation ,, .program to make sure this versatile and important "'" 'Element isn't wasted. Southwest Kansas is playing a key role making, life better for all men, in scientific development and ;,£;$n space travel with its production of helium — " "which is found in the natural gas from the vast Hugo'""'ton field. These gas fields produce virtually all the helium in the United States. If this helium isn't removed, it is burned up when the gas is burned. a Precious resource which points up the" potential in an area which has just begun to Kennedy Hurt by Democratic Friends He Helps WASHINGTON — When the history of the 87th Congress is written it will undoubtedly show that Charlie Halleck of Indian*, the GOP leader, is right in claiming that it wfls a Democratic shortly after he gets back to Cap- Istration, Smathers was consid- itol Hill.

But both historians and Charlie Halleck can go further and recount that part of the trouble was JFK's policy of being too nice to congressmen who were too nasty. He followed the policy of turning the other cheek to congressmen who bit the hand that fed them, ; There is no better Illustration of this than the fact that Congress has been kept in session three extra days, largely because one of the President's best personal friends, dapper Sen. George Smathers of Florida, put tip a roadblock against adjournment because he wanted to override an expected presidential veto on a pet pension bill for doctors and other professional men. Srn. Dick Russell of Georgia joined him — in order to get a U.S. — financed peanut laboratory in Georgia. Smathers had voted with tihe doctors against medical care for elderly people who have a hard time paying their doctors' bills. Then he turned round and pushed a special pension bill permitting ,doctors and other self-employed, generally among the top bracket citizens, to get special tax concessions for preferred pensions. The bill will eat a further hole in the budget, and th e treasury considers it. so unjiwt that it has recommended a White House veto. But Senator Smathers, who has long campaigned for a balanced budget, announced last week he woulrl hold the Congress in session until todav so as to override any veto from his old friend and golfing partner, at whose wedding he served as usher. The interesting thing about JFK is that he has turned the other cheek to Smathers for two long years. The more the debonair senator kicks him on the legislative shins, the more his old golfing partner comes back smiling. It's gotten to be a Joke around Senate cloakrooms that the President's shins are black and blue — though not merely from Smathers. Other "loyal" democrats, such as Bob Kerr of Oklahoma, have contributed to the bruises. But Kerr doesn't come to White House breakfasts every week as does dapper George, and look affably across the breakfast table at the man he is about to kick Garden Citv Tctatfram Published Dally Except Sunday and Five Holidays Yearly by Thfl Telegram Publishing Company at 177 Eaat Chnstnut Ireland, where the Mississippi- born Florldlari' was not a huge success, and has been replaced by the genial irishman from Philadelphia, Matt McCloskey. But after about nine months of patiently tolerating Smatheais' biting the hand that fed him, the White House leaked word that Kennedy was "cooling" on his old friend. Whereupon the hand- some senator from Florida got an appointment with Kennedy in the private, upstairs part of the White House and called for a showdown. He told friends later with some glee how he had informed Kennedy that he couldn't sufi,-ort mm on everything an-1 thai '•' "•-•' had said th e "cooling off" report came from his staff and did not represent his own personal feelings. After that Kennedy went further out of his wa'y to feed the mouth that bit him. He journeyed all the way to Miami last March to speak before a $100-a- plate dinner honoring Smathers and raising money largely for Smathers' re-election — though he's assured of being re-elected.
