The Nation Today BY J A M K S ' M A R LOW WASHINGTON, J u n e 4 {/I';-- You rruiy not have thought of It t h a t way but W a s h i n g t o n Is the World's s c i e n c e capital. This c i t y is the center of great fccienlifio activity although the noise of the politicians and lawmakers drowns out the quiet scien- t Uts. ______ House Flip -Flops Again After Veto Balances Budget AUSTIN. June 4 -- (/I') -- The 50 Legislature is in a mood to wind up I t s work and end the session by Friday. Thes were the actions yesterday which indicated the legislators might pull up stakes Friday and head home: 1. The house did a double flip- fjop on it. 5. resolution calling for f i n a l a d j o u r n m e n t at noon Friday, June (J. It first voted to recall the resolution from the sen- nt-e Then. I n t o in the day, it voted to recall the recall, t h u s leaving the resolution in senate hands. 2. The Governor b r o u g h t state jspondlnr and revenue In balance by vetoing Items totalling $1,000,000 in the red. That was w h n t prompted t h e a t t e m p t t o recall i h t - f l n n l adjoiinuiu-nt resolution to allow time! in w h i c h U trim Yet, you could rubberneck nround Washington a good while and still not see the work In science being done here. Since World War I Washington has become more- and more a scientific center. It spurted into flriit place under World War II. The Washington speaking of the scientific of the city, said: "Growth has been topsy-llke--a lylclothron here, a wind-tunnel there, medical research laboratories somewhere else, until you look aboult and audclently realize- that your own backyard Is a treasury of scientific endeavor " Probably more scientific witlons, including some the drive of recently growth $1,000,000 opon foi ( i o v ru'iiuford 11. ,Ir.'itcr waved Uu- h - n l s l n t i i r c that e f f o r t . ;$. The j H - n i i t r made no rnovn to wild the J u n r (5 a d j o u r n m e n t resolution back to the house in response to the recall. This could mean t h a t the senators are also prepared to q u i t Prlday. 4. Jt-.stcr viewed hlH veto t.s leaving the way the session to a d j o u r n . 5. Hep. Claud G i l m e r , chairman of the House Appropriations Com- mlttee. told the house: "If you recall this recall, I t h i n k the senate will adopt your adjournment resolution in the morning." Jester cut from the eleemosynary bill an appropriation of $300,000 for a new psycopathic ward for the Austin State Hospital, and another appropriation which act u a l l y was a carryover of $1,300,000 m unexpended f u n d s from appropriations made by the legislature. Explains Effects Ho wild his veto on previously- appropriated money would not affect any balance that might re- m a i n n't the end of the fiscal year, 1948, but would a f f e c t only the balance at the end of the c u r r r n i f l w r n l y r - n r , A u g . 31 1047. -These two items w i l l e f f e c t a s a v i n g of a p p r o x i m a t e l y $1,000,- ooo and w i l l n o t , in my Judgment, hamper 'he operation ol' our ele- f i n o s y n a r y institutions," Jester MI id. The result of yesterday's legis- l a t i v r : actions was to leave to the senate t h e u l t i m a t e decision on when the legislature will finally adjourn. House refusal to pass a bill allowing oil u n l t i z a t i o n agreements left a question m a r k on the report that t h e senate will not seek f l n n l a d j o u r n m e n t until the bill is passed. The house rejected senate am- f i K i m e n t s on the measure, and ordered it sent to a conference committee for settlement. flapped down a g a i n wan a $200,000.000 soldier bonus proposal by Rop.

HARLINGEN, June 4 -- Discussion ol' n proopscd for the Rio Grande Valley Gas Company was delayed for 30 days last night by city commisioners, after the body heard arguments in the matter. Commissioner B. S. Mothershead raised the question o.C rates to be charged conKiimera alter which the group discussed an invitation to the KTI.S company to offer a reduction. Mothershend said he felt it better business to fix the rate structure before the franchise is granted. Figures he had gathered, he shid, indicated that the company earned $123,023.02 mor that it required to obtain its regular six per cent net profit, during the period 1942 to 1046. He had not ben able to obtain figures oh the cost of construction and revenue derived from tlie 100-mile pipeline into Jim Hogg county, he said. Judge D, F. Strickland, representing the gas company, asked for immediate-; adoption of the franchise ordinance, emphasising that the company had contributed considerably to the growth of Harlingen during its 20 years operation here. He also pointed out that Jack Williams, representing the Southern Gas Company and Roger Lacy, had presented a franchise in Actober, but was back now asking for more time to demonstrate what he could produce. He dcclar- that Williams could not get needed materials to bring the gas Into the city w i t h i n two years. At rates fixed on Mothershead's flguror,, he snid, his compan would bo compelled to appeal to Tlnllmiui Commission. He added f u r t h e r that if Williams comes Into the city oflorlni? a 23 per cent lower rate, the Rio Srnncio company would cither meet, the new rate or go out of business, Claude Carter, representing Williams and Lacy declared that the Rio Grande company did nob come to the Valley to help build the area, but to make money. A rate fight, he pointed out, frequently requires years to adjust in .the Texas Railroad Commission and the courts.
