TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1950 Tht Notion Today: Out of Wathington— American People Live In Grim ' K/TTHEVTLLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS By JAMES MARLOW « WASHINGTON, Oct. 10. (AP) — Do you feel thai you're living in » kind of world you never knew before, a kind of unreal Mlfght lone between' war and peace, won- k dering which you're heading for? I do. I guess everyone does. All we seem to know Is that we must be ready for war If war is necessary.' hoping that we can become m strong and ready for war that In the end it may be unnecessary, I felt the iinrealness strongly this past week, I spent the week on a vacation fishing in Virginia on Chickahominy Lake, near Richmond. The black bass are big and rugged there. s This great wilderness—miles of trees standing almost bare, a. kind of ghostly watery \vorld—looks as it has locked for a thousand years, . except for a new houses on the shore. And it sounds that way, too. Unseen, the frogs make a long, pained, rough, warm bellow like cows. A deer suddenly crashes through the trees, into a creek, crashes away on the other side. Silence Flows Back And when the silence Hows back again a great bass shatters it with a leap that drops him back In a shocking splash on the surface of She lake. He's gone when you look. Only the widening circles tell where he was. This was the natural world, free of men's troubles, although it has trouble* of its own: the deer Is fleeing from an enemy and the savage and hungry bass made that racket lunging at a minnow. Still, It gave the Illusion of peace, ir from war or talk of war. And It as good to be there. But then every morning when I came In from early fishing, at breakfast I read the papers from Richmond, 25 miles That jerked me back to the world I lived In. There was tho news of war in Korea and preparations /or war, If the big war comes. Nevertheless, reading those Richmond paper* was a good experience for someone like me who works the jear around In Washington, cover- Ing news in the capital. GMTrnment Time Tar in Washington all our time Is taken lip with the government: Congress, the President, the cabinet. Army. Navy, State Department, taxes. Democrats, Republicans, International doings. Because here we work every day on Washington news, because it fills so much of our lives, I guess we come to think of It a* something which fills everyone's life everywhere. . The Richmond papers put the picture back In foous for me. Like the front pages of papers every- fvhere .they gave a lot of attention to Washington news and International »tuK and the Korean fight- Ing. But Richmond «nd Virginia have » lot of problems of their own, problem* and conflicts which Interest the people of Richmond and Virginia, also, and affect their lives. So room wni made on the front page* tor them. too. Which Is another way of saying, I suppose, that people outside Washington are interested In a lot more than Just what happens here, although we here may forget that. Peopl« Are ConcrmM But the front page of a Richmond paper or a paper anywhere tells pretty well the kind of lives we're leading now: The people much concerned with what's happening close to them, very much concerned and Interested, and concerned and Interested about' what's happening in Washington and the rest of the world. • And &g they go, not knowing whether their road leads to war or eventual peace, they still try lo live in this twilight K>ne the same 'iind of normal lives they had in iny u.Tual peacetime day. Several people who knew I was from Washington xsked m* If.

Always a Color Cartoon British Seek Atomic Heat For Towns LONDON, Oct. 10. (/Pi— British scientists are designing equipment to warm towns and Industrial plants with the heat from atomic energy piles. A ministry of supply announcement today said that engineers at the Harwell Atomic Energy station will start building the necessary machinery early next year. Their Tirst project will be to heat all :he buildings ol (he Harwell establishment. tt is hoped, after a period ol experimentation, to supply heat to towns near atomic energy plants. Atomic piles produce intense heat which now Is thrown off by passing air out through tall chimneys. "One of the difficulties utilizing this heat is to find, metals which can withstand it," a ministry official said. One plan for using the heat, being worked out by the scientists, is to generate steam for conventional heating system. Another method being developed is to generate electric energy to be reconverted Into heat at a distance from the pile. Taylor Spurns Jail Welcome BIRMINGHAM. Ala,, Oct. 10. W —The welcome mat was out in front of Birmingham city Jail for Idaho's Senator Glenn Taylor today. Taylor spurned the invitation. The obstacles to his entering Jail to serve a 180-day sentenced were matched only by the Impatience of Police Commissioner E. C. Connor to have Taylor behind bars. "You can quote me as saying I'm going to leave no stones unturned." Connor said. "I'm going to get him." Taylor was convicted of disorderly conduct folowing a scuffle with police outside a Negro youth meeting In 194«. The U. S. Supreme Court refused to review the conviction. Yank Sends Parking Ticket Fees from Front in Korea SEATTLE. Oct. 10. (iP,~ It appeared to be Just another routine letter containing three »1 bills and three parking tickets.

The question, of course, came out of a yearning for some kind of certainty about the future, even If the answer had been the certainty of war. But I heard little talk of Washington or government or Russia or w»r. I got the feeling—ind you who read this mllee from Washington will know the answer better than I—that people are trying to live their lives normally, willing lo make great sacrifices If necessary to hive In the end a peaceful world, not talking a grot deal about the future. materials. Legion Parade To Accent Need For U.S. Armies LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10. (/p>— The National American Legion Convention called a halt to business sessions today to stage a mammoth six-hour parade designed to accent the need for continued national prepredness. The stream of perhaps 50,000 uniformed men and women will include tanks, amore^dequipment and troops of the 13th Armored Reserve Division, underlining warnings of convention speakers against smugness over the Korean victories. The marching spectacle will not be without the traditional legion pomp, music and Inn. There win be plenty of bands, colorful drum and bugle corps, snappy drill teams and some decorated jalopies and ancient, locomotives, reminiscent of the forty-and-elght-days.
