City's New 'Gas Code' Good Protective Step The ordiance passed this month by the City Council on installation of natural gas lines and appliances may seem at first to be a stringent measure. However, it is a necessary, protective step which in the long run will protect nil users of this fuel. As.was pointed out at this month's Council session, gas is unlike' water. A "handy man around the house" who barely knows a Stillson wrench from a plumber's friend can tackle n plumbing job without undue risk of life and limb. If his job is a failure, the resultant leaking water is not likely to cause any drownings. Not so with gas. The smallest leak or pressure differential might result in suffocation or fatal explosion. While there is no cause to become alarmed about using this or any other fuel, safe installation is necessary. The recently- passed city ordinance provides for this. It protects the consumer against becoming the victim of well-meaning Init under-experienced gas installers or his own home-Jiandy-man "talents." This ordinance requires gas line an rl appliance installers to be licenser! by the city as qualified. Their work must be checked by a city gas inspector and certified by him before the gas can be ttirtied on. Although natural gas is scheduled to he available here by the second week in October, some patient waiting is going to be. required of most potential users. U is, of course, not yet known what the demand for this new fuel will he. There is. however, likely to be sufficient demand to tax the supply of installers, and especially the services of the city gas inspector. Indications are than only one inspector is contemplated by the city. For him to properly check and certify the hundreds of installations that will be sought will take time, even after some probable wailing for a licensed fias-filter to become available. Perhaps it will be necessary for the city to qualify another inspector or two until the initial installation rush subsides. That can be determined only after gas becomes available and the demand ascertained. No matter what the wait involved, however, patience on the part of the would-be u.=er will he well worth his while. "Quickie" installations and hasty inspections mean trouble for all. If your plumbing leaks, only you suffer. A #as explosion could extend the dam- gLYTHgyTLLE (ARK.)' COURIER age to an entir* neighborhood. Your contract with the gas supplier will clearly state that the utility in no case shall be held responsible or liable for any damage to persons or property resulting from Installation or operation of the customer's service, house lines or appliances at or beyond the point of delivery. The supplier has taken steps to protect itself as far as its lines and equipment are concerned. By doing your part to accept only qualified and inspected installation on" and in your property, you will be protecting yourself and your neighbor. Wonderful Idea Benjamin F. Fairless, chairman and president of the U. S. Steel Corporation, says he and Philip Hurray, head of the CIO United Steel Workers, are going to tour American steel mills in search of a better way than strikes to settle labor disputes. If this comes off as planned, it could rank as a milestone in labor relations. The mere fact that it has been successfully proposed is important in itself. Anyone who lias road the many accounts of the cost to the nation of the recent steel strike knows, if he did not already know it, that strikes of this magnitude are a colossal economic waste to all concerned. They are getting to be like war. Winning is only slightly better than losing, and in a very real sense it can be said nobody really wins. As has been said before, you cannot ask labor to give up the right to strike. That is the workingman's proper last resort, his final weapon of protest. But it is possible that labor itself may decide simply that strikes — whatever they do to release the workingman's emotions do'not pay off. In other words, labor may of its own initiative, after carefully exploring all the alternative avenues, determine that the strike today is a wasteful, obsolete device that ought to be employed on only the rarest occasions. Views of Others Backseat Drivers Backseat drivers who like to issue directives to the man behind the wheel can perform a use- lul service In reducing Ihe nation's traffic toll, In the opinion of n doctor who has treated tha victims of more thnnjg>_£cnnsylvanla Turnpike accidents in the lust thjree years. If the gabblness of pariengers Is used constructively, many accidents caused by fatigue or drowsiness of drivers can be avoided, according to Dr. Carl Combs, member of the staff of a Pennsylvania hospital, "Fatigue dulls the senses, reduces visual acuity and slows down,reactions. When these danger signals appear, the backseat occupant should Insist that the driver stop for coffee and a rest," Dr. Combs said. How Io recognize the symptoms of tiredness? Dr. Combs has three suggestions for the backseat driver: 1. Keep talking to the driver; If his answers become vague or wandering, his senses are In the same condition and his ability to drive safely Is • gone. 2. Misread a road f ii>n aloud to (he driver; if he doesn't correct you he wasn't alert. 3. Insult him : if he't react Quickly he's unfit to continue driving. —Philadelphia Bulletin Such A Lot Of Years!

Mr, Dulles made it even clearer lhan any article or book he has written on the subject previously. There was one answer to a question which blevy away much ot Ihe smog of confusion lhat has surrounded (he political campaign foreign policy debate thus far. It came when Mr, Dulles was commenting on Secretary of Slale Dean Achcson's speech in which he said the use of force to liberate Communist satellite coun-. tries would he Mr. Dulles replied: "I think that if It Involves the use of force In a war of liberation, H means disaster. Of course I'll agree with that." ' / Now Ihis is Important. Because it shows for the first time jhat Mr. Dulles and Secretary of State Denn Acheson really aren't as far apart as Ihey have let on hi arguing the respective merits of Ihe Acheson nollcy'of "Containment" versus the Dulles policy of "Liberation." Confusing Catch Words These are probably the two mosl misunderstood calch words of the campaign. In the ereat American effort to over-simplify and boil down complete doctrines of foreign jolicy Into a single word, both lepublicons and Democrats have been pretty badly confused. Genera] Eisenhower's and Gov- ernor Stevenson's forlegn policy speeches have been misunderstood as a result. And President Truman's comments blasting General Eisenhower's speech didn't help materially to clear the air. Secretary Acheson. in his speech before Ihe Machinists' Union convention at Kansas City, said frankly that he did not consider the w o r ri "Containment" a good "shorthand description of what we have .been doing and propose that we continue." On the other hnnd. Mr. Dulles says that his iheory ol "Liberation" has been misunderstood and grossly misinterpreted. That Is a familiar out for nil politicians. Dulles Talk Puzzles No one can question Mr. Dulles' sincerity in this statement, but It is permissible to draw the conclusion that if he has been misunderstood, it Is only because he didn't make himself clear in the first place. He quit this Job so he could be free to help draft the Republican platfor-m planks on foreign policy. And as some of his less ardent admirers add, "to run for Secretary of State." Anyway, the John Fosler Dulles who then started making speeches around Ihc country and writing articles for the magazines was not Ihe same Ambassador Dulles who i n countless state Department clambakes was known lor his shrewdness, his extreme caution and his willingness to back up whenever diplomatic discretion became the better part of military valor. In simpler language, "lie has never been one to stick his neck out if there was any danger o/ getting his head cut off. when the full history of the Korean war !.•; written. It will probably be recorded that Mr. Dulles —who was In Japan when the war started-dld as much as any one to get .the United stales into It. He spoiled General MacArthur's Sunday afternoon nap to'make him realize that Ihis was war. And Mr Dulles made sure that President Truman wns tossed the right torch so that he would pick It up and toss It on to the United Nations which he did. Because these facts are well known ;n diplomatic circles, there was naturally some, concern when Mr. Dulles, as chief architect of the new Republican foreign policy started talking =nd writing about the need for a more ageressive foreign policy towards Russia. "Containment" was not enough The satellites wotild have to be liberated. Hence the tag-line for Ihe new Dulles policy of "Liberation." The prospect of starling more Evidence Refutes Him Korean wars all over the place naturally came to many minds- including those ol Truman, Acheson and Governor, Stevenson. Yet there was in Mr. Dulles' record plenty of evidence that if the full responsibility were his. he wouldn't do any such thing And now. at last, he confirms this himself. He has no thought ol tryinz to 'drop arms" into Poland or Czechoslovakia or any other area he would like to see liberated, to stir up revolution. He does not think these countries can be freed by Ihe Republicans in a hurry, it will take something leas than the 25 years It took the Communists to win control of China. What this all seems to shake down to is (hat the difference between "Containment" and "Liberation" is about like the difference between Tweedledum and Tweedle- dee. . the Doctor Says — By EDWIN P.

So-.ith would have made an over- trlcki and desperately s-vitched to diamonds, but the Jig was up South easily won Ihe rest of the tricks. South's birtdinar was very clever. His first shrevvd move a as to bid only two rlubs. TTiere naj no need to Jump or make a lake-out double. Since South had only one card in both major suit* combined, there wns bound to be further bidding. West made a rather aeird jump to four hearts. Two hearts would | have been t reasonable bid nith his RKO's release, of a special two- reeler titled "Operation A-Bomb." Fifteen Marine Corps cameramen shot 29,000 feet of color film of the recent atomic warfare .maneuvers at Yucca Flat, Nev. The short features the best footage. Judy Canova selling her home hand. But the actual Jump to four hearts, gave South a chance to bid five clubs as though he were being pushed to it. Actually, South was happy to he pushed. It was all right for West to suspect- that South had stretched too far in bidding five clubs, but you need more than suspicion to double the opponents. West should have passed in the hope that his partner rmilrt take clear action. As it happened, however, East ran out of the double, since he knew that his hand was defensively worthless. Now South had to pass. For all he could tell. North might be "busted," in which case a bid of six clubs might go for a bad ride. But South changed his mind when North decided to double five hearts. North couldnt' nnve any high clubs antt was most unlikely to have a heart trick in view of the way the bidding had gone. The double was therefore based on strength in spades and diamonds, in which case the combined hands «ere probably good for slam at clubs. South's reasoning was very sound, but West, continued along his disastrous path by doubling aeain. This double was really an Insult to East, Since West had already doubled five clubs he had made It plain that he hoped to set six clubs. The double therefore shrieked aloud "Don't run out of his double, Partner. I'm going to massacre this contract!" If West had passed. East might hive seen the light by taking a sacrifice at. six- hearts. With normal good play on both sides. East would be set only two tricks, for a loss of only 300 points.
