Th« petroleum Industry fc n«*t, for refineries, pipeline's and spending M billions this year and other plant and development. Insiders believe that at much more will r» spent M fast us it can be. This would total almost half as much u the industry has invested from Its birtli down to this year. But it will not add 50 per eeni lo capacity, because casts have increased enormous!}'. The natural and manufactured ga* Industries are spending $130,000,000 this year. Of this $143 000.000 U for Big Inch and Little Inch pipelines, now bringing hundreds of thousands of cubic feet of natural gas east every day. Otiier pipelines head west. One informed source estimates that the Industry will spend at least $7.5 billions in the next five years if they can get the materials anil equipment they want. 55 MLLION IN S YEARS The electric power industry has $6 billion five-year, program, Slightly under $1 billion, is bcins spent this year, because of steel shortage and delayed output ol manufactures who went through long strikes last year. If productions permits, they will spend more than $1 billion in each of the next two years, and then taper off. Class I railroads have 851 locomotives and 105.261 freight cars on order, of which almost h.iK are open top cars. If they can they want to spend about $300 millions a year for five years on locomotives and freight cars, plus ss much more on roadway and train equipment. This would buy, among olher things, the hopper cats needed to haul coal. They wei« supposed to begin getting 10,000 cars a month the middle of last summer. On the ground .of sicel and other shortages, the delivery schedule was cut in hnlf. Meanwhile cars arc Wearing out, beyond use, faster than they can be replaced . WAK BLAMED All of these, Industries;-, h'ayo been criticized somewhat ' for Jack of vision or of daring in not.antici- pating these needs and preparing against them. There ic no sure way of knowing whether they would haU; expected what has happened. But they offer the un- an.werabV defense, that during the war they were nol i>ermlttcd In build /or today's peacetime ncedi. They could use materials and manpower only for pressing war needs. . After 1 years In which they could not legally or patriotically order plant equipment, they have come into a postwar boom that almost nobody expected. The demand for their products has skyrocketed. Since 1939 the fuse ol gas for healing nnd operating refrigerators has increased by 12.6 billion cooking, writer-heating, house- therms a year, or about 80 per cent. Since 1930 some 5,800.000 homes have added electricity. The number of electrified farms has .doubled. And each customer uses hall again as much current as he did then. As a re.sult. demand has doubled while private companies were able io slep up capacity by only about 20 per cent. Whether they would have kept up laqprovfaf UM *V«*d CHAMPAIGN, III. (UP)—About 100,000 cows will bs.bred artificially In Illinois during 1947, according to the University of Illinois college of agriculture. Breeding associations have been formed In 63 countries so fanners can have their cows bred to better stock, improving milk production and Raits value. tf the war had permitted li anybody's guess; bin it is a fact that they not, only could not buy new senprators—they even hud cqnip- iiienl taken from plants where it already was Installed, and moved to Navy ships and turned over to our hnrd-prew>ed allies. After allowing for replacement of worn-out units, ' there will bo some 550.0CO more nil-burning home furnaces In use this winter i than a year ago. Since the war began, tho number of homes healed with oil has increased by I 40 per cent. ! Figures on equipment using these fuels. Mid thus contributing lo the tightness of supply, are not very complete or reliable, But in the 18 months ended June 30 about 2,300,030 gas \\9ier heaters of various types, using gas, were were delivered, and there wore delivered in the first seven months more than 600.000 orders on flic. More than 350,000 house heaters this yenr. This was not- quite up to the 19« rate, because of the ban imposed by many companies on such installations. From Pearl Harbor through 194« some 6CO.OCO ranges. 400.000 water heaters. 500,000 radiators and t wo million refrigerators were among the new electrical items put into homes. i'elrolcinn: The Industry will upeni $4 billions tills year and next for pipelines like those •hove, reflnrrie*, etr.

Happy finally dressed and wer>t down to dinner, she found George in the drawing-room alone. He still looked angry, but lie forced himself lo smile i>< her when she eame in. "Hello, darling," he greeted her. "Sorry jou hndlobekrtmfor thiE unplcnjantnes*.^ "I dkin't find it so mnptensant. George. After all, they nre tcr- ril)ly in love—and David hos a wonderful job."

His mouth twisted a little .it the word, but he offered Happy his arm ceremoniously and they went into the dining room. George chatted lightly ae they ate, for the benefit of the servants who came in and out throughout the meat. But they both rose from the table at last with obvious relief and George led Happj out to the az.itea terrace. He lit a cigarette, Inhaled, and Ihon flung it away from him impatiently. Happy watched the tiny glow that arched into the darkness anci winked out. "Well, Happy?" said George at last and his voice was stern, "What about it?" She couldn't pretend lo misunderstand him. She was even a little relieved to be able to discuss «» thing that lay between them; to disctiss it and to end it once ami for all. "I'm—sorry, George." George looked down at her and the she saw hie rac« elenrly m dim light. "That, 1 tahr it, fe *, .^_ wen* of no," rw observed dryly. "I am sorry, George." "I suppose it's all this ridioirJow* nonsense abrml Joyce?" "Not entirely," Happy admitted. For a moment »M:y we*« both silent. And then he paid "Is it Steve Landers?" "I'm afraid it is." He looked at her shorpty, ! ing a little. "Afrnid?" he repealed. "Bec.-uise he doesn't love me, you see. He—wanted me to autriy yoH." "Oh, he oHd, did he?" * * • "XY/'EL.I,, you see, he's not In love with me, but he Hke« me. and he Uiinks Sundown is such a glorious place, and he thought that if you wanted me lo, it would be a fine thing for me," she blurted out miserably. "But you don't think so, eh! The —or —material advantages don't lo yon?" "They wouldn't be advantages unless 1 loved you," she pointed out quietly. "And IT I loveci you, they wouldn't bo important." "I can see Hiat we're wasting time, Happy," Georje said, and his voice was still harsh. "I'm sorry I think we could have had something retty fine, but of course, no man wants an unwilling wife So we'll drop it, shall we?" I "I think that would be wise," she agreed. "And now I'd betler say good night and finish my packing." "Oil, you're leaving?" "Of course—in the morning." He was silent for a moment and then he nodded. "Perhaps that would be host. 1 understand ,\5ade];iinc is going oul West for a vis : t with some of her relatives." he said carelessly. "I'd betler say goodby now. I shall probably be gone when you wahe up in the morning; a place like this drives a fellow pretty hard. It's been swell having you down here, Happy. I'll g i ve ynii a rim: next time I'm in New York and we miijhl go places." "Yes. do; nnrt thanks for letline me visit Sundown and for all the things you've done," "It's been a pleasure, Happy." Before she was halfway up'the stoirs, she heard him at the telephone. And before she reached her door, she heard him saying. "Hello,' Drur'la? I'm nt a loose end tonight. What shall we do abowl it?
