MONDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1951 Atomic Heat "Carrying coals to New Castle formerly symbolized the height of absurdity. But today Great Britain imports nearly all'of its oil and also some coal. So that nation has, in desperation, been less concerned about producing atom bombs than using the atom for generation of power. Britain has now announced operation of the first atomic central heating plant. This experiment, on which the eyes of the world will be focused, is at the Harwell installation, where a building with 80 offices ·will be heated by hot water obtained by a heat exchanger in the air duct of the cooling system of the atomic pile. It will be pumped through radiators by an eight-ton furnace and it is asserted there is no danger of radioactivity. Cost of operation is said to be that of coal. If the experiment is successful, it will be applied to other buildings at Harwell. Obviously the area in which such a hot-water system can operate is narrow, as the water would cool if transported considerable distances. Here in the United States engineers are thinking in terms of steam from atomic stockpiles, which would be used to generate electric current for wide distribution. Fuel, both coal and oil. is so relatively abundant here that greatest public interest has been devoted to the big atomic bombs and to the small A-bombs that can be dropped on armies in the field without danger to the user. Scientists seem concerned with the problem of using atomic energy in such fashion that a big sea-jfoing vessel can be sent around the world without refueling. At Schenectady, N. Y.. there is an atomic stockpile for research. It would be a great achievement if the experts at that plant could devise a way to establish electric plants in areas to which the cost of hauling fuel is now almost prohibitive. did the late Mrs. George Bernard Shaw leave $263,000 to teach the Irish people "the social graces?" If a London court now considering the bequest does rule it is valid, how should the Irish spend the money? Do they, as Mrs. Shaw intimated, need lessons in "self control, elocution, deportment, the arts of personal contact, and social intercourse?" These questions have stirred up a number of the ould sod's ex-native sons here. James McGurrin. president general of the American Irish Historical Society, suggested that Mrs. Shaw made the bequest because her playwright husband had been painfully shy and awkward in public. But as for the Irish as a race, well, says McGurrin: "Although Mrs. Shaw was herself born in County Cork, I'm afraid that her knowledge of her native land was either very defective or her use of it.disingenuous. "During her own early^years In London the most brilliant talkers at the English dinner table were Irish--Oscar Wilde, Justin McCarthy and T. P. O'Connor. "Curiously enough, Shaw himself was an outstanding exception. According to Mrs. William Morris, wife of the poet, he was the only awkward and reticent Irishman she had ever met." "My own suggestion about the bequest is that it be used in England to promote a sounder knowledge of Irish history, life and character. For anyone who knows Ireland is well aware that in the arts of deportment, courtesy and natural eloquence the Irish people need neither advice nor instruction." A reporter who entered an Irishman's bar and brought up the subject was first made to show his credentials to remove any suspicion he was a British spy. Ke subsequently noted down the following observations by the patrons, many of whom had been born in Ireland. "The whole thing must be a fraud. Now, who ever heard of an English judge handing down n decision that would give ?263,000 to Ireland?" "That's right. All England pver gave Ireland was trouble, the potato bli'ght and weak tea " "Self control, is it? I'd like to see anybody try to teach me self control." "What is it Mrs. Shaw said about deportment? I t h o u g h t deportment Operation Dirt Merely to read a list of the changes laid against the 31 (last count) Internal Reenue employes who have been, discharged or asked to resign is to get a terrifying picture of the low estate to which government service has fallen. Filing false returns, improper solicitation of taxpayers, misappropriation of property, improper acceptance of fees--these are but a few of the offenses which at long last have stirred the bureau to action. As the public studies this latest slimy chapter in a sordid story, there is growing amazement that it took the Bureau of Internal Revenue all this time to weed out some of the malefactors, and then only after it had been prodded by outsiders. Senator Williams of Delaware, who started the current probe after he had been billed for income taxes which he had paid, says there is still a great deal more houseclean- mg to be done. In his efforts to get all the dirj out of the tax collection system he will have the full support of all citizens who do not subscribe to the theory that government is, and should be, A racket. was something they gave you in school. T h a t s where my kids get it anyway--all they've got of it, that is." "Who will tench the Irish bolter manners; the English; we've been iryinc to teach them manners for 500 years--and the job is only half done " "All the English evr-r taught the Irish was how to cat stone-;'' "Erin go.bragh!'' 'Erin go braph!" "Erin go bragh!'" Oh, pshaw. Mrs. Shaw. It's hope- IP-S. The Irish like themselves a;; they are--shy though they seem to tliL- rest of the world. Rev. Philip L. Farrell Rev.

PURNELL BAILEY Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart! When we begin to number our handicaps and grow discouraged, it might be well to remember that both Nelson and Napoleon were relatively small men. Alexander the Great, despite his grand-sounding name, was a hunchback. Furthermore, we might remember that Aesop, the composer of such thrilling romances, was deformed. Milton was blind. Beethoven and Edison were deaf. Helen Keller, of our own day, is deaf, mute, and blind. Robert Louis Stevenson could say that for eighteen years he had never known a day's health. These looked above their handicaps. Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart! Oscar F. Brown. 51, of McKaig, was found dead in the basement of the Mt. Zion Church in McKaig, about 5 p. m. Saturday afternoon after he apparently committed suicide.

Man Slain By Gang's Guns CHICAGO, Dec. 3 (#)--The noisy bark of gangland guns Saturday night silenced forever the easy talk of a former Capone henchman whose income tax disclosures touched off a scorching scandal involving a onetime police captain. Suave Sam Rinella, 49-year-old ex-convict under indictment for income tax evasion, was shot to death in front of his home by two gunmen who caught him in the glare of a flashlight--as though they were making sure of their target. Then, cooly. methodically, they bent briefly over the body, calmly entered a car believed driven by a third man and sped away. The slaying came just 11 days after Rinella reportedly told Treasury Department investigators about financing of his ill-fated Loop night club, the Copacabana -- financing that included an investment of at least $100,000 by a $5.200-a-year- police captain. Rinella was indicted Nov. 20 on charges of evading $156,96 in income taxes for the year 1945 and 1946. The former police captain, Thoma J. Duffy, 66, spent an hour and 1 minutes with authorities yesterday during which he denied any know! edge of the slaying. Tight-lipped fo the most part, he said he learnec of the ambush Sunday morning an carne to the State's Attorney's of fice because "homicide is one thing and income tax is another thing. Thus he warded off questions abou reports that he had invested frorr $100.000 to $205,000 in the half-mil lion dollar Copacabana, which fold ed after six months operation in 1946.
