It takes less than half the time to do dishes by machine, and the hotter water makes them more sanitary. thousands of rugged men maintain a steady search for natural gas. Pipeline Network Thousands more of 'these modern- day pioneers are extending the pipelines that carry natural gas into 28 million American homes, using over 100 million gas appliances. Natural gas is whisked across the country by its own multi-million dollar pipeline transportation system covering some 548,820 miles. This is enough to circle the earth 22 times. At various points along the pipeline, carefully trained men operate stations that wash undesirable Ingredients, like sulphur, from the gas. Still others scour the pipe to clear It of clogging residues. Many technicians are employed at pipeline laboratories sampling the gas for heat values and chemical content. And that isn't all. According to the American Gas A<fcn., there are 200 underground storage facilities in the United States where gas can be kept in f|^nmer to take care of winter needs.

TIP TO YOU OLDER FOLKS Keep Young Friends, Urges Prominent Octogenarian By MARIE DAERR Owning the longest car on the block won't guarantee you happiness in your later years. But 80-year-old Dame Kathleen Courtney, a tiny, energetic Englishwoman, has no doubt about what DOES put the gold into the golden years. Just a few minutes' conversation with this diminutive octage- narian, who recently flew home to London after an extensive lecture tour in the eastern United jstates, convinces you Dame Kathleen knows what she is talking about. What are (be things Dame Kathleen, an expert on world affairs, considers important? "Friends," she said, "and not all from my own age group. "I'm going to be realistic. It's sad but true that, when you are 80, not many of your old schoolmates are around. "I've made friends in younger lage groups. They keep me young joecause they are looking forward to the future, instead of backward ''at the past. "All my life, I've been so interested in other people, I haven't had time to think about myself. "The fanciest TV set in the world isn't going to keep you from being lonely. But having a genuine concern about other people will do the trick. "Speaking of TV, being in Am j erica has made me wonder about {today's emphasis on material i things. It seems to me too many ipeople are convinced they can't (possibly exist without every product they see or hear advertised." Dame Kathleen — that title given her by Queen Elizabeth is equivalent to "knight" — is thank ful for health. Slender and bright- eyed, she thinks that looking after your physical "machine" while you are young pays off in later years. "I can give a lecture at noon, be interviewed in the afternoon, attend a dinner party and then be on hand before nine the next morning for a talk to a school assembly," said Dame Kathleen, "And I'm young enough to be planning a jet flight for my next trip across the ocean." Spiritual values are high on her list. "The fact that so many people British Police Gals Objects of Matrimony By BILL DILLINGHAM LONDON — Ladies, join the police force and get married: This is becoming a common slo-; Kan of advice for girls in England. It has been discovered that the English policewomen get more proposals than the beauty contest winners. This is because of three important points: (1) She appears in uniform, and men generally find this attractive; (2) Sho is exposed to having many thousands of people see her; (3) A man has an ideal excuse for properly meeting her by asking for directions. Each year the British police lose about one-third of their female cops j to matrimony. Each year, there-j fore, plenty of places in the forces I are vacant for new applicants who' want to get married. The job of policing an area in England is not as dangerous as it frequently is in other countries. This means that the-little ladies are not risking their lives for the sake of the law, order or a husband. I Britain has its large crimt prob-.' lem like most other lands, but aj policeman doesn't have to "shoot it out" with criminals. Guns are not carried by the British bobbies, therefore burglars and thieves usually don't carry them either. It is a mutual agreement. Carrying a gun, English criminals understand, only invites accidental killing and the gallows. One relies on brawn and quick legs. For this reason England has so few murder cases among its common criminals. Within this frame, then, the policewoman occupies a place as a judo artist. She is given a highly practical course before being posted to the job. She is taught how to detain a man (which might later come in handy in matrimonial search) and how to defend herself (possibly useful after she gets married). Aggressive judo is rarely applied. She is supposed to hang onto her criminal like a bulldog, keeping herself from being beaten to a pulp, until help arrives. Such violent incidents, however, are rare. Even the criminal in England is a gentleman and would hesitate to strike a lady with whom he was wrestling.
