Natural Gas a Step NeSrer in East Arkansas Blytheville HIIC! Eastern Arkansas today are a step nearer thn day when a better and cheaper fuel will be available. The city's aldermen are to be commended for passage of an ordinance granting a franchise for Rlytheville and placing it in the hands of the directors of the East Arkansas Natural Gas Consumers Corporation for pooling with franchises granted by other cities and towns in the area seeking natural gas to be delivered by a dependable utility. Blytheville was the 13th of 22 cities and towns in the area to grant the uniform gas franchise sought by the consumers' group. The corporation, a non-profit organization which has been chartered bv the state, is working with assistance from the Arkansas Public Service Commission in Little Rock to obtain a source of supply for the entire area. Leaders in the organization are proceeding on the theory that a better deal can be obtained for each of the communities if they work together. Working alone, or merely waiting for natural gas to come to East Arkansas has been futile—and expensive, for natural gas, delivered at rates now tinder state regulation, is a cheaper fuel by far than most other fuels available in Eastern Arkansas this year. A survey of the savings possible through general use of natural gas in Blytheville, we believe, would show benefits of at least $50,000 a year for domestic consumers ,-ilnne, that is for those who use it for heating and cooking in the homes. Over a period of ten years that saving would amount to a half million dollars, a sum much greater than the estimated cost of installation of a natural gas distribution system for the city. And if the plan for the East Arkansas Natural Gas Consumers Corporation materializes, the system will be provided without expense to the city or to the consumers. The system would be owned and operated by the utility which eventually obtains the block of franchises now in the hands of the corporation formed to induce introduction of natural gas to Eastern Arkansas. Such reasoning may sound strange to some who still erroneously believe that natural gas is expensive, "one Blv theville resident recently m ade the remark that he would continue to use his present heating system because of his belief that the cost of natural gas would be too high for his pocketbook. Residents who have used natural gas in other cities know that the cost will not be prohibitive. They know that monthly bills for heating an average home can be. kept as low as 512 or S15 » month for the coldest months in the year and such bills are in sharp contrast with many which. h»vt run as high as « dollar a day during the past winter for such fuel an was available. Loans to Franco? Reports persist that Spain wants to borrow $200,000,000 from American banks, and that American policy may he altered lo permit the loan. For if tli« Franco government, fell, communism would probably take over in Spain. Such a |x>ssil)ility, if true, would put this government in an embarrassing spot. Hut is Spanish fascism tottering? Spain, though perennially in a bad way, , lias survived for three years without the help of her old Axis'partners. It could be that, with the spread ot Russian conquest. Franco thinks he has us over the barrel, and thnt any raiucstecl loan is really a polite form of blackmail. VIEWS OF OTHERS Labor Peace Gets Help pence will be given needed ciicour- agc'ment by the appointment of John J. Murpliy ns National Director of OrKimiy.alion by the American Federation of Lnrjoi. Mr. Murphy is a liehttug man, ami believes 111 the strike ns a last resort. But. experience 1ms convinced him that Generally the workers will gain more If the rto their best to negotiate disputes with employers, and then If n stalemate develops, lurii to arbitration. Mr. Murphy plans to make the holding otf ot strikes one of his major national policies. When the key organizational man in the largest moor body In the country takes this stand, his Influence lor peace is bound lo be important. This former New England Regional Director o[ the AFL has shown more Interest than many labor lenders in the welfare of the employer—the man who provides the jobs for union members. During his years In Boston, Mr. Murphy saved two companies from going under. In one Instance, »ti arbitrator h»d awarded a labor union under Ills direction a wage Increase of 15 cents an hour. Mr. Murphy realized that, the company could not stand such a raise at that time, and succeeded In getting Ills neopl« to accept just h»lf the wage boost. The company Is now operating prosperously, and has given Its APL union the highest wage rate in any cnmly factory in the country, besides some exceptional benefits. "This was simply good .labor relations." Mr. Murphy comments. "In saving- them, we are saving ourselves." The American labor movement needs more ot tills quality of building which the new AFL lender embodies. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.

Temperance in its" iarg"- est aspect means restraint and self-control. It Is perhaps best described In the good New T^tament word "forbearance." Tempers do not necessarily have to be bad or evil to bring trouble into home life. Extremes of egotism, or of stubbornness, of determination to have one's own way. of luck of consideration for others can often prove as disastrous.
