. . . Joyous Christmas ‘
@hp ttntp is here again for an editorial ex
-2z pression of the Christmas meaning. We
* mf"?’/fi_ have a feeling of inadequacy at this
- holiday, as we do at other holidays.
Willis E. Stone, chairman of the Liberty Amendment com
mittee of the United States, has an effective appreach. Here
is what he says:
“It’s CHRISTMAS again, that wonderful season in
which the goodness of mankind becomes manifest, and the
miracle of the nativity holds us enthralled.
“It’s the old story, ever new. It is now 1963 years since
the Christ child came to dwell amongst men. He was the
Prince of Peace, the fulfillment of Prophecy, yet He was born
in the poverty of a manger behind the Inn at Bethlehem that
He might better lead mankind along the way to freedom and
“A crown of gold was His for the taking, for there were
multitudes, then as now, ready to follow a leader bent on

mission on earth was to give, and not to take.

Gas Storage Field
Will Be Activated
The Power Commission at Wash
ington has approved a billion dol
lar project designed to provide a
long-terin supply of natural gas for
north-eastern markets at a stable
The project involves construc
tion of natural gas pipeline facili
ties at a cost of about $125 million,
by Texas Eastern corporation of
Houston, and Algonquin Gas Trans
mission company of Boston.
It also involves the sale of some
$843 million worth of natural gas
from the west Delta block 27 field,
offshore Plaquemine parish, Louisi
o by the Gulf Oil corporation
fouston to Texas Eastern.
Eastern is to increase the
iy capacity of its Texas to
?k pipe line system by 408,-
cubic feet over a 4-year
i at a cost of about S2OO mil
- .aigonquin - will build facilities
costing about $15.2 million to in
crease its system capacity to en
able it to sell for resale an addi
tional 20,934,000 cubic feet of gas
The commission said the sale by
Gulf guarantees the availability of
a substantial quantity of gas at a
price which, when taken at a high
load factor, is in the public interest.
As part of the project, Texas
Eastern was authorized to convert
and activate the Accident gas field,
an existing gas producing facility
in this county, into an underground
slorage reservoir.
