Break in Gas Line Endangers Austin Gravest Peril Apparently Past, Police Report Says Austin, roar- ing break in a 10-inch gas line spewed, the explosive fuel over a vast section of Austin early today and threatened thousands with potential tragedy. But four hours after the break, police said the gravest danger of a blast appeared ended. The 300 to 400 persons who fled their homes return- ed.

I've lived here 30 years and I'm not leaving." Mrs. R. James Andrews said, "It gagged me, but I could stand it and I didn't want to leave." She didn't. An official of Phillips Pet- roleum company said the break apparently was caused by a cleaning device sent through the line. The line carries butane pane was blown by a south southwest breeze across South Austin, through the downtown section of the city, and into residential areas as far dis- tant as 45 blocks north. Radio warnings were broadcast urging residents in the area of acute danger not to strike matches. Pilot lights were ordered out. Avoid turn-- ing on electric light switches, police told the people. Schools were closed in the entire Austin area south of the Colorado river at least until 1 p.m. The river bisects the city. Police Break Up propane depending on season. The gases are or the pro- cessed from natural gas and liquefy under pressure. They are used for heating and cooking by many homeowners who have no natural gas line connection. Police Capt.

Neither the conservatives nor the laborites have formed three governments in a row for Britain in recent times. The conservatives won three straight elections in 1922, 1923 and 1924, but in 1922 labor formed a short-lived minority government with liberal sup- port'. The liberals won three straight elections in 1906, January, 1910, and Decem- ber, 1910.

There was little doubt a Washington Charles Van Dorcn, one of the all-time Taft Hartley law injunction) big money winners on a television quiz program, was re- ported today to have been invited to testify before a house issued! been fixed. A source, who asked he not be identified, said Thomas E. Ervin, vice president and general counsel of the National Broadcasting company told the house subcommittee yester- day that Van Dorcn would be willing to testify either today or tomorrow. Van Dorn is now under a a year contract with NBC as a tele- vision c o m mentator. The source e m p h asized that Van Dor- Ervin en, a former Columbia university English instructor who won on NBC's quiz show "Twenty- One" in 1956, was not being ordered to appear. He said a telegram, sent to Van Doren merely invited him to testify.

A judge's ruling was required, but never before has an injunction been refused in the 15 previous times the gov- ernment has invoked the law's emergency provisions. A court order ending thc week-old strike was expected to send the workers back to the docks no later than to- morrow. William V. Bradley, president of the striking Inter- national Longshoremen's as- sociation, said "when we re- ceive the order we will com- ply with it." Quick Action In ordering court action, Eisenhower repeated that if the strike were permitted to continue, it would imperil na- tional health and safety and affect the food supply of the heavily populated Atlantic and gulf coast areas. His order climaxed a day in which the Taft-Hartley law's emergency machinery turned with almost unprecedented speed. A fact-finding board held hearings in Washington yes- terday morning, wrote its re- port during the afternoon, and dispatched it by navy jet fighter plane last night to Ei- senhower's vacation head- quarters at La Quinta, Calif. Eisenhower received the re- port and ordered the court action less than 17 hours aft- er the board started its hear- ings.
