The Brownies walloped the Washington Senators last night, and moved live and one-half games ahead of the Boston Heel Sox. That's the biggest lead that Luke Sewell's crew has held this year. -Tlic Browns whipped the Washington Senators 11 to 6 In an nrc- Ilglit tilt.

P. QUAINT UUKIAL CUSTOM Several quaint burlnl customs in foreign countries have come to light since our boys and girls started their surge overseas. For Instance, there was the public grounds In Indln where the deceased are taken and lelt for destruction by jackals and other animals. But it doesn't compare In oddity with the custom as employed by Use natives on New Guinea, The information conies from Lieu. !la Mae Halnes, a nurse with the American forces on New Guinea, a first cousin lo lone (she's my No. 1 wife). It wns related In tv letter lo Dr. and Mrs. E. A. Itnlnoc of Hem- phis, more kinsmen of Mrs. Friend, who in turn passed It on lo us. "They bury their dead In a sitting position with the bead protruding from the ground. Tlie hend Is covered with a pot, or something, and left that way for several weeks. It then is severed from the body and mailed to the nearest reiatlve." (I understand it Ihcn Is placed on a pole near the house. I Imagine Ihey have lots of "fun" Introducing their deceased to company or visitors???) Lieutenant Raines said they almost have gone native, us far as clothes arc concerned. Dresses arc out for the duration. Suntnn shorUs arc worn most of Ihe time. They arc quartered In tents and native huts, which are unusually comfortable, lhanks lo American Ingenuity. EX-CHICKS IN HOSPITALS Al least two former Tribesmen, Pfc. Roland Warrlugtoa nnd Lieut. Howard G. Frlsby, Jr., have teen' hospitalized. Pic. Warring ton suffered shell shock during the fighting In Prance and has been removed to England where he Is recovering. . . Lieut.

James Crook, just n couple of hours when Jimmy arrived back In Ihe States after approximately two years In New Guinea. Sergt. Crook has arrived at Oahu, T. fl. He is with the medical detachment. Asvarc that Barney is such an avid souvenir hunter, Jimmy predicts he will come back with n "palm tree on one arm and n grass skirt on the other." COKPOKAI, (JUTS IDEAS Rcpoii tluit Lieut.

Think I shall get sick and go sec her. Can you blame a guy?" . . . Sorry, Cecil, but the report was erroneous. 'Unless she has moved across the channel Just recently, Lieutenant llicc is 'still In England. . . Corporal Austin has been overseas for almost a year, and reports that he has seen Londui and milte a number of the larger- clllcs of lhat country. Ills one big regret Is lhal he doesn't spcnk French. "There urc a number of good looking (mademoiselle) girls In France," he enthusiastically reports. "Now for the good tilings about France: my foxhole, which I sleep In and also hide fran the Germans sometime." . . . After being stationed in Australia for about two years, Sergt. Charles (Peck) Hard In has been moved to New Guinea. By this time he may have rejoined Stall Scrgt. mil Crowe, who wns with him at Australia and witnessed the historic football game between.two service teams, the first of the pigskin sport to te reeled oil before Aussie natives.

In Arkansas the sound and brilliant young 'Bill' Fulbright' was given a lead in the Senatorial race which promises a fining addition to the dignity, energy and iMcsmansltip of the upper chamber of Congress. Won National Attention "It is a queer commentary on politics that in South Carolina the striking victory for the people nnd good government lies in the defeat of a candidate, nkile in 'Arkansas it lies in the utcccss of a rising star. * * * J. W. Fulbright, 39 years of age, scholar, lawyer, farmer, and successful business man, \s one of tlic striking figure* of the Seventy-eighth Congress, to which he was elected from Fayettevillc two years ago. A great athlete and outstanding student at the University of Arkansas in the early 20's, a Rhodes scholar and subsequently president cf hia alma mater, he is a well-rounded young mar. of infinite promise. He won national attention as the author of the 'Fulbright Resolution' for a lasting peftce, and as the Democrat who took Congresswoman Clare Booth Luce apart after her 'globoloney 1 speech last winter.

S. Senator from Arkansas, he will be as good as elected. If Mr. Fulbright goes to the Senate from the House it will not only mean that this section of (he country has selected a higher type of legislator than the South has been sending to Washington in recent years. It will mean that the man in Congress who was first to put into simple words the sound international doctrine that has since been endorsed by the Republicans at Maekinac, the Senate, the Moscow conferees, and the two major parties in their platforms, has been rewarded for what at the time was cons?d' ered intrepid political pioneering. Simply Stated "Looking back upon this chapter in the progress of the Republicans and Democrats in Congress from excessive timidity in the foreign field to their espousal of postwar collective security, it seems surprising that Mr. Fnlbright'i 'early IrarlersJtip thould have been to 'outstanding. There were nt the time numerous resolutions proposing that the United States should participate in an organization that would, through a concert of nations, invoke strong measures to keep the peace and put down dictators and world conquerors. But Mr. Fulbright stated the proposal briefly, in simple words: 'And, not content uith merely proposing, he labored nt this one tnsk until it was done. * * * "So far as Congress is concerned, Mr. Fulbright was greatly responsible for giving the House its first voice on a matter of major foreign policy.
