First War-Time Election In 24 V ears Finds Little Real Interest
BV ASSOCIATED TRESS
Upwards of 30,000.000 war-mind- I ed Americans exercise today the 1 right and privilege for which their
forebears fought and died a century and a half ago and for which their sons and brothers now are fighting and dying again—the right , to shape their own government.
In the first war-time election since 103 8. the voters cast ballots 1 to determine the political complex- j ion of the new Congress starting i in January and two-thirds of the J 48 state administrations.
The Democrats, holding comfort- j able majorities in senate and house and 28 of the present governorships, expected some net losses. J

liOral Inanes Except for a contest here and there in which so-called “isolationism’’ figured' local issues predominated in a campaign more notable for its preoccupation with the war than with politics.
Ballots in 47 states contained the names of more than 1,600 can-! didates for 33 seats in the new senate and two 60-day terms in th« present; 432 house member- j ships, 32 governorships, and 208 other state offices, exclusive of state legislative posts.
Maine, the only state not voting today, held its election last Sept. 34. choosing a governor, senator i and three house members, all Republicans.
Ignorance of the law yesterday freed Joe Wiehl, rancher of Sinaloa. Me*., from i possible indictment by the federal grand Jury.
The string of coincidental dr-cam stances when \\ leh , who Is an American cittern living south of the border, was told bc d have to take some time off from ranching and have his tonsils out. Ile made the arrangements with a doctor and hospital in Tucson and several weeks ago come up.
He crossed the border at .Nogales. declared himself as an American citizen and went on his way to Tucson, ether and the doctor’s knife. He knew that American citiz.ens residing in foreign countries were not required to register under the selective service act, hut had never learned that every citizen was required to register immediately upon entrance in the United States.
\\ jchl spent some time in the hospital recuperating from his operation and then headed hack for Mexico and his ranch. Close tr the border an officer of^the border patrol stopped him, asked a question of so and then re-quested a glance at his draft card. Wiehl said he didn’t have one since American citizens residing in Mexico did not have to register. Whereupon the border patrolman added to Wiehl's stock
of Information on selective service and promptly arrested him.
The border patrol agents yesterday brought him before C. Wajne Clampitt, I’. S. commissioner, for a hearing. Clampitt heard the evidence and, on the recommendation of the district attorney’s office, dismissed the case but ordered Wiehl to run, not walk, escorted by the I . S. deputy marshal to the nearest selective board and register. Wiehl did so and then went on his way to Mexico, a sadder and a wiser man.

CHICAGO, Nov. 3. (U.P> — Two psychiatrists today examine Irwin Kadens, 33, Army deserter who insists he was “not nuts” when he conducted a two-month tour of crime through the middle west.
After yesterday's stormy courtroom session in which Kadens protested against almost every step of 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 tomorrow.
Although Kadens, a former postal clerk, has admitted "about 75” crimes, including robberies, attacks on women and the kidnaping of a Detroit couple, he was . placed on trial first on a charge of attempting to rob a currency exchange. It was during that at-J tempted holdup that he was cap-j tured bv police.

Perhaps you never thought of it just that way—but in the southwest it is literally true. Most of the electricity serving our homes and industries is generated in power plants using Natural Gas for fuel. So, when you flip the switch that floods your room with light, you are indirectly 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 thousands of feet below the surface of the southeastern comer of New Mexico.
Th* variety of uses to which Nat-ural Gas is out in the southwest is so great as to even surprise us. The list is far too long to run here—but it ranges from the smallest Bunsen Burner in the laboratory to huge revorbatory furnaces using millions of cubic feet of gas per day*
The electricity which runs the elevators, lights our streets, pumps our water, guides airplanes in to safe landings can all be traced back to these selfsame gas fields near Jal. Electricity has become such an integral 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 instantly 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 furnaces of the boilers which make the steam to drive the generators which produce Electricity—that indispensible public servant.
The amount of electricity used in West Texas, Southern New Mexico,
and Southern Arizona in army camps and in industries vital to winning the war adds up to a staggering and ever increasing total. If all the electric generating caoacity of this area were to go out of commission tonight, production would stop—and life as we know it today would cease.
The exact amount of the increased demand on the El 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 Company’s voluntary and privately financed program of expansion carried 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.
