Tackled Big Problem In Getting Natural Gas Potential users ol natural gas in Eastern Arkansas ;ire face to face today with their greatest problem in the 11- county movement to obtain « fuel sti|)|)!y which will make the area moru iitlraclive to liome owners and to new industries. The East Arkansas Natural Gas Corporation was formed less than a year ago with the idea of pooling municipal franchises in 22 cities and luwus as an inducement for a large and responsible distributor of natural gas to enter this great field which has been by-passed while nearly all other densely populated sections or Arkansas were able to get this clean fuel at rates competitive in normal times with other types of fuel. 'Utility rales fluctuate less than other prices during periods of inflation, such as we are experiencing today, and the price of fuel delivered by regulated utilities i s much lower by comparison than the cost of most other fuels. Some fuel prices have advanced as much as 25 per cent within the-past year. The newcomer among organizations in Eastern Arkansas has made progress. It is attested by the fact that Blytheville became the 13th city in lhe area to place in tlie hands of (lie association's directors a franchise for distribution of natural gas. Action by several other cities is expected to bc taken within the next few weeks. And the East Arkansas Natural Gas Consumers Corporation, which is operating without profit and without salaries to busy businessmen .who arc serving on the board of directors, is proceeding with greatest possible .speed toward the goal which was little more than a dream a year ago. The next step will be a conference in West Memphis on March 1!) with representatives of distributors of natural gas who are interested in entering ICast Arkansas and making the substantial investments which will be necessary to pipe natural gas to the various towns and provide distribution systems in each of those municipalities. Such a block of franchises doubtless will be attractive to the distributors of natural gas. Such distributors have assurance from the Arkansas Public Service Commission they can make, if they follow reasonable business practices, an earning up to six j,er cent of their investment needed to deliver natural gas into East Arkansas. Responsibility for making the best possible deal for the consumers in Eastern Arkansas is on the shoulders of (he directors of consumers association. Serving from Mississippi County H re B! A. Lynch, president of the Farmers Bank and Trust Company in Blytheville, and Ben F. Butler, mayor of Osceola, who also is president of the association. They were instrumental in junking •n original proposal to put the matter of placing the gas franchise into the hands of a special committee of five men and putting the responsibility on the whole board. The re»poasibil% should b« with the whole board and when the franchises are placed with a responsible and experienced utility concern we feel that the gas consumers organization will have performed a most valuable service for each and every one of the municipalities in Kastcni Arkansas which shows sufficient confidence in that organization to let it represent them in one of the most important tindertakings in (he area in a great many years. VIEWS OF OTHERS Peace Pattern: Recovery Plus Security Few If nny conferences since the close of the war have opened on a more auspicious note then Hint sounded at Brussels, where representatives of Britain, France, Hclgiiini, The Netherlands and Luxcmboig arc working out a iciMonal defense pact. The cheerfulness expresses ilsclf even in application of humorous labels like "Spmikistan" and "Bevinform" to I he projected regional de- Icnsc system. The labels reflect tilt- enthusiasm of Belgian) Premie:- spnnk lot the proposed alliance—and the fact, that he impulse lor his project was British Foreign Minister Bcviu's speech calling lor a western European union. The encouraging outlook is partly- the product of a statement by Undcr-secrctary o( Slate Lovctl to the effect that if western Europe can build tlie house, America has some ideas for rcoting it. The mood at Brussels in expected to cool down when Hie actual problems of reconciling British and French views with [hose of the smaller "Benelux" stales have to be tncklcd. But even then the fact will remain: the decision of the live western European countries to pool their problems nnd their power, and the support which Washington now oilers them, are as pat to the world situation as was the^ likewise revolutionary concept of Lend-Lease in Its day. They are the result not of theorizing but of facing conditions. It Is an echo of unhappy far-off things that an erstwhile ally, Russia, appears as the catalyst for western European co-operation on both the economic and political fronts. When Marshal Smuts first spoke of a western European group, there still was hope that the searching experience world war would reveal common interests lor Russia and the West which would transcend the considerations tending to divide them. When, much later, Winston Churchill asked for an American commitment to a European anti-Communist front there was still a hope that misunderstanding rather than opposing basic purpose was the chief cause o[ world unrest. As Mr, Bevln reminded us i n his speech on "European western union," the Marshall Plan brought all this to a head. Moscow's relusal to cooperate or to pci-mll co-operation by other smaller states under its influence proclaimed the Russian Preoccupation with oilier things than the well- being of Europe. Of the common purposes that built so gallant an alliance of East and West rliiring the wa r there remains chiefly lh e United Nations. So it Is worth stressing that the regional defense system projected at Brussels does not violate UN concepts, it merely claims for western Europe the same privileges which Russia demanded for eastern Europe, and for which the UN specially provides. The heart of western European organization, however, must be a greater element ol power than 11ml region itself commands. That is why American encouragement of ihe Brussels purposes is so, vita) to It. It is almost certain that with such encouragement the purpose of Brussels will surely be duplicated elsewhere. A series of regional assistance systems tying all western Europe in the first phases of what one day may b c close political union can be The Lovett statement lias surcharged Europe with a new hope. By it Hie United states invites new and even vaster responsibilities than it 1,,-i.s accepted through the European Recovery Program. -CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. 'Whew! That Was a Short Trio!'
