10 PAMfA DAILY NEWS I'AMI'A TKXAS 66lh YEAR Thur«l,iy. June 15. 1972 House Unit Urged To Approve Bill On El Paso Natural Gas Pipeline WASHINGTON (APi-Con- gressmen and governors from western stales urged a House Commerce subcommittee today to npprove a bill preserving the TK rRed Kl Paso-Pacific Northwest natural gas pipeline The bill would seek to overturn a Supreme Court order to break up the merger as a federal monopoly law violation. The nation's largest pipeline carries gas from the Southwest to I ho Pacific Northwest coast. Itep Brock Adams. D-Wash., the lead-off witness at the hearing before the communications and power subcommittee, said the bill's objectives have the support of the governors of Arizona. California. Idaho. Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Washington and Wyoming Spokesmen for the Washington, Idaho and Wyoming governors were prepared to testify at the two-day hearing. The subcommittee chairman, Hep Torbert H. MacDonald, D- Mass., said the sponsors of the bill "will have to sustain the burden of proof that this legislation is in the public interest. "They will have to show that under the conditions which prevail today, the decision of the Supreme Court would do harm to the consumers living in the Pacific Northwest region, he said. "... I realize the gravity of an action by Congress to overrule the Supreme Court in a matter as serious as this," MacDonald said, adding that he had "an open mind with regard to this legislation." Adams and Rep. Teno Ron- calio. D-Wyo.. testified that the Supreme Court ruled years ago (hat the merger was only a potential threat to competition in California. Since the ruling, they said, California has several pipelines competing and the monopoly threat has vanished. "In view of the serious gas shortage." Roncalio said, "competition is no longer possible in California or elsewhere. "Anybody with a supply of gas can sell it anywhere," he added. Roncalio said that the merger has been in the court for over a decade. "Instead of harassing this big company (El Paso Natural Gas Co.) with litigation," Roncalio said, "the government should cooperate so the company can find new supplies of energy in Canada and the United States." BOYLE'S COLUMN What Is Hell? By HALL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) -What is hell? Well, between its occasional heavens, life holds more than a scattering of hells. Each man comes in time to feel that he has been through at least 10.000 private hells of his own. But that is a delusion of grandeur. And as we go through our lives, our hells change. Here are a few hells that some particular unlucky rascals have had to confront at different ages: At one month old, hell is a dark room with no one else in it, and an open safety pin stuck in your side. At two years, hell is a spanking for successfully climbing out of a high crib. In kindergarten, it is being told by the only other red-haired girl in the class that you are even uglier than the first one said you were. Hell at seven is being caught by your mother stealing a dime from her purse. Hell at 18 is drawing a draft lottery number under 10. Hell at 20 is having empty pockets every Saturday night. At 21 it is marrying the wrong red-haired girl. At 29 it is marrying the sec- \.--- MOOEL- automatic Magic-Mix* filter trafs lint continuously during washing and rinsing.

Hell is turning 30 if you're a woman and turning 40 if you're a man. Hell at 41 is having to ask for a job sweeping out the office of the former high school pal who was voted most likely to succeed—and who did. Hell at 45 is having your daughter jilted by the rich boy you had counted on becoming your ace in the hole. At 50 hell is having your older son turn down your request to lend him $5 in walking around money because he has just been fired from his job, too. And at 65 hell is trying to live on a forged Social Security check you never earned in the first place. But the worst hell of all is to wake up in some smoky place at 80 and be handed a hot shovel by a red-eyed guy with a long forked tail who tells you they only have a coffee break there once every hundred years. Of course, all along these hells may not be your fault at all. Sometimes we don't get to pick either our hells or our heavens. They simply descend on us by chance. You can always explain that to the chaplain—and let him punch your old Army tough luck card. 'Irreplaceable' Texas Ranger Dies At Home SAN ANTONIO, Ten. <AP)A man who became a near legend during his 34 years as a Texas Ranger was found dead at his home Wednesday, the apparent victim of a heart attack. Zeno Smith. 70, was found lying in the backyard of his San Antonio home by his neighbors, police said. Smith, who had been working as a Wilson County deputy sheriff, retired from the Rangers in July 1969, Long identified by the broad- brimmed black western hat he frequently wore, Smith, a familiar San Antonio figure, helped solve some'of the biggest criminal cases in South Texas. Following his retirement the Texas House of Representatives passed a resolution urging the DPS to defer his retirement because he was "irreplaceable." He was cited for his "notable record and outstanding service." Muskie Names Campaign Man WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Edmund S. Muskie, D-Maine, today picked Sen.

With Acceptable Trade 1312 N. Hobart Fleming Appliance 665-3743 Poll Shows Texas Businessmen Support Moratorium On Busing Seventeen out of 20 independent business owners polled by the National Federation of Independent Business favor the proposed moratorium on court-ordered busing of school children which would prohibit any new court orders for a limited period. ,, In a nationwide address, last March, the President proposed a freeze until mid-1973, to allow Congress time to legislate on the busing question. Conferees of both Houses have agreed on an 18-month moratorium. The Federation's' nationwide sampling of business opinion shows 85 percent in favor of the moratorium, only 11 percent opposed and 4 percent undecided. Respondents in Texas reacted with 90 per cent favoring the proposal, eight per cent opposing it and two per cent undecided. Lowest regional support was 80 per cent in New England; the highest, 89 per cent in Texas-Louisiana- Oklahoma-Arkansas. The national results are almost identical to the Federation's findings when it polled proprietors on a Constitutional Amendment to prohibit busing based on race, creed, color or national origin. Eighty-six per cent support it. The likelihopd that a Constitutional Amendment, if passed by Congress, would not be ratified by three-fourths of and emotional ground well over busing led President Nixon to propose the moratorium. Rather thin a Constitutional Amendment, he urged Congress to enact definitive legislation to "treat the question with far greater precision and detail..," Volunteer comments to Congressmen, written on the businessmen's poll ballots, indicate In no uncertain terms how they feel about busing. A Boise, Idaho, owner wrote: "Settle the busing issue now. No busing required!" Their concensus is that busing is a waste of taxpayer money which could be applied to improving education, especially in minority schools. Many owners view the moratorium as a political tactic to remove busing as an election-year issue. Critical of "double-talk", a New Mexico owner wrote, "If the President were sincere in his opposition to busing, he could have long ago pulled his henchmen in the Health, Education and Welfare Department off the backs of the States and their schools." UNIQUE SKRUM BANK BALTIMORE (AP) - A new program to aid children for whom chicken pox could be fatal has been unveiled by Dr. Neil Solomon, Maryland's secretary of health. Solomon said a special serum bank, first of its kind in the nation, would be established for children who are especially threatened by the illness. "Chicken pox can be deadly for children who have to take certain drugs to combat arthritis, kidney disease, leukemia and other forms of cancer," he said. Barbara is a Greek name which means "foreign; strange: stranger." How can something that sounds so strange, taste so good.
