Y. — (NBA) — When Mrs. John Thomas plugs in the iron to press her husband's shirts, she s plugging in atomic power. Like their next-door neighbors. »e Michael Mones, the Thomases fry atomburgers, brew atomic coffee, and watch the atom light up the screen on their TV set. They're the first families In the tret world to use atomic electricity produced commercially, and while they are aware that the current they're getting is no different than that from conventional, sources, they feel pretty proud about being the first to reap the benefits of the atom's peacetime role. Eight across the road from their homes is the power station that shares history with them, since it's the first distribution facility for atomic electricity. * • • The Thomases and the Mofies, ai well as other residents of Ballston Spa, have been getting atomic power on an intermittent basis since mid-July, when it was first sent humming over the lines of the Niagara Mohawk Power Corp. from a turbine-generator at nearby West Milton. The generator is powered by steam from a land-based prototype of the nuclear power plant for the submarine Seawolf. The reactor is housed in a huge steel sphere. The turbine-generator, which has been installed near the sphere, was built and is being operated by General Wright Brothers flew 34.1 mile* n M minutes on this date in 1906.

I talked to my three "termites" down in Houston. I can't decide whether hearing their voices makes me feel better or worse, but when he six year old, excited over his rst year in school, told me he could make a good ONE but couldn't make a very good TWO, that at least brought a smile. The five year old was excited over having his tonsils taken out so he could get a lot of presents. The three year old one told me he was the cock of the roost since the other two were in school. That kind of conversation cost me J1.50 — plus tax — cheap at twice the price! BALWTON SPA'S ATOMIC POWER begins In thk sphere »t nearby West Milton, where * prototype of the reactor that will power the submarine Seawolf also generates electricity for peace. Mrs. Michael Mone. Hw home »M first with atomic electricity. Electric at no expense to the government. Niagara Mohawk is distributing the power on an interim basis until three public power groups in the area have a chance to decide whether they can make use of power produced by the West Milton facilities. But the three Thomas children. Caroline, Marcin and Janet, are already convinced. They think the atom makes a mighty fine picture on their television screen.

My favorite month, October, reminds me of something well said, "Autumn repays the earth the [eaves which summer lent it." Breaking that down to non-poetic language, this is the tune of year to start oiling your rusty hinges and get out the rake and wheelbarrow end brush up on cussing your next door neighbor's trees, cottonwood, that is. I'm looking to hear further from this from my neighbor, Roy Cox, and family. He'd better not or I'll remind him about his taking a sack of bananas to eat on the train when he and Eloise went on their honeymoon. That'll fix him. There'* «lways an out. Nothing flatters a man as much as the happiness of his wife; he is always proud of himself at the source of it, Uw deceitful devill Me thinks every generation of husbands and wives are practically the same. I sat in on the conversation of three young matrons nearing middle age, the other morning over a "set up" of coffee. These old ears heard one of the girls say her husband should have married a girl with a degree in plumbing, welding and a post graduate course in electrical wiring. He expected her to know all about everything that goes into the of > horn*. One of ttw other chime* In taA said she had almost gotten down on her knees for new wall to wall carpeting. She finally took up her living and dining room rugs she began housekeeping with, and set fire to them and put a few throw rugs around and when her satisfied spouse came in he said to her: "You know, I like these small rugs, looks so cool," and she cried and said, "How about this winter?" I thought I'd take a stab at their confab and I suggested she use a bear-skin rug in front of the fireplace tQ give the room warmth for the winter or better still, have one of the deer skins, that cost $500 to kill placed under HIS favorite chair, as a gentle reminder, of which they don't like to be reminded, and by spring she'd get her wall to wall carpeting, pronto.
