8 THE OTTAWA HERALD Monday, Feb. 11, 1963 Fribley Veteran Of War, Politics By ELON TORRENCE TOPEKA (AP)-A real veteran among leaders of the Kansas House, in more than one sense, is Rep. Bill Fribley, R-Crestline. Fribley, only 37, is in his eighth term in the House. He also is past national commander of the Disabled American Veterans. Now serving as Republican floor leader. Fribley has been in the House virtually ever since he recovered from World War [I wounds that resulted in loss of his left arm. Fribley is a native of Oklahoma but has lived in Kansas since he was 10. He graduated from high school at Riverton and entered the Army, serving as a light machine gunner with the 386th regiment of the 97th Infantry. His wounds resulted from an encounter with the detonator of a shell from a German 88. The shell hit a building in Widdeit. Germany, while Fribley's unit was helping clear out the Ruhr pocket. Three companions also were wounded. That was April 15, 1945. For the next 24 months, Fribley was in Army hospitals. At one time he was down to 72 pounds from a normal 135. After discharge from the Army in May of 1947, Fribley spent additional time in Veterans Administration hospitals. He finally was cleared in May of 1948, and almost immediately started a successful campaign for the house. He has been a member ever since. Fribley is considered well-fitted for the post of floor leader in view of his wide acquaintance in the Legislature and state government. He has served on several of the most important committees. He has been speaker and Republican caucus chairman. Fribley considers himself a "middle of the roader — I guess you would say an Eisenhower Republican." Fribley said he would like to see the 1963 Legislature adopt a sound school financing program that is "adequate and fair to the school districts and the taxpayers." "My main concern," he said, "is to put my experience to good use as floor leader, to try and I keep this session on even keel, ; and to help develop solutions to school and other government problems." In private life, Fribley was in the insurance business until he assumed his post as national commander of the veterans organization. Since relinquishing his veterans work, he has been concerned primarily with some investments.

But times and telephones change. Remember when phones needed fixing so often that each one had a door on the front for the repairman's convenience? Today's telephones give many years of trouble-free service. Remember when you had to talk hud to be heard? Today you can talk on the phone as if the person were sitting next to you. Remember when technology limited telephones to one color and one model? Today you can have colors and models to suit your own good taste. Continued development of better styling and engineering of telephones is another improvement made with you in mind. Our never-ending goal is to improve your telephone service and make it more valuable to you. SOUTHWESTERN BELL Making t«l«phon« s«rvlo« b«tt«r to ssrvs you bsttsr
