(U.R) Two psychiatrists today examine Irwin Kadcns, 33, Army deserter who in- sists he was "not nuts" when he conducted a two-month tour of crime through the middle west. After yesterday's stormy court- room session in which Kadcns pro- tested against almost every sten oE the proceedings, Judge John A. Sbarbaro of Cook county criminal court wearily appointed Drs. Vladimir G. Urse and John J. Madden to examine the defendant and continued the trial until to- morrow. Although Kadens, a former postal clerk, has admitted "about 75" crimes, including robberies, attacks on women and the kidnap- ing of a Detroit couple, he was placed on trial first on a charge of attempting to rob a currency ex- change. It was during that at- tempted holdup that he was cap- tured by police. Kadens first upset the judicial calm of the courtroom by demand- ing that he be tried for a more serious offense. The Army de- sertion or kidnaping charges against him carry a maximum penalty of death. Take Mother Out His mother, Mrs. Mary Kadens, wearing a black shawl, added her voice to the tumult until bailiffs led her from the courtroom. His attorney, Charles A. Bellows, who was retained by relatives, was denied a request for a week's con- tinuance so he could study the case more fully. Kadens said he didn't want a continuanca anyway. Then Bellows asked; that psy- CITY BRIEFS THE GRADUATION" OP RAY- mond M. Francis, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Francis of 144S Black- lidge Drive, from the Norman, Ok- lahoma U. S.

SUCH A LITTLE DIFFERENCE IN PRICE! i Wonderful Llnlma.ntj ,c Light read by threu jb our pipeline Perhaps you never thought of it just that in the southwest it is literally true. Most of the elec- tricity serving our homes and indus- tries is generated in power plants using Natural Gas for fuel. So, when you flip the switch that floods your room with light, vou are indi- rectly using Natural Gas which is supplied by this system. The motor which runs your vacuum cleaner, your washing machine, your electric razor uses energy that has been stored for countless centuries thou- sands of feet below the surface of the southeastern corner of New Mexico. GAS FACTS: The variety of uses to which Nat- ural Gas is put in the southwest is so great as to even surprise us. The list is far too long to run it ranges from the smallest Bun- sen Burner in the laboratory to huge reverbatory furnaces using millions of cubic feet of gas per day. The electricity which runs the ele- vators, lights our streets, pumps our water, guides airplanes in to safe landings can all be'traced back to these selfsame gas fields Electricity has become such an inte- gral part'of our very lives that we scarcely think about it nor do we realize how completely dependent upon its power we actually are. Without electricity, anything like "normal life in America would in- stantly cease. Hence it is not hard to understand the vital importance of Natural Gas in our every day lives when we consider that Nature's Perfect Fuel fires the blazing fur- naces of the boilers which make the steam to drive the generators which produce indispen- sible public servant. The amount of electricity used in West Southern New Mexico, and Southern Arizona in army camps and in industries vital to winning the war adds up to a stag- gering and ever increasing total. If all the electric generating capacity of this area were to go out of com- mission production would life as we know it today would cease. The exact amount of the increased demand on the E] Paso Natural Gas Company system for gas for making electricity must necessarily remain a war secret. But there can be no question that The Pipe Line Com- .pany's voluntary and privately fi- nanced program of expansion car- ried out during the past thirty-four months has done much to make _ it possible for this area to take on its full share of the national load of providing the weapons for Victory.
