The former football and basketball star who later guinea national recognition as an end with the Detroit. Lions professional football stiuad, was to receive the award in Impressive military ceremonies in nazorback stadium at 3 o'clock tills afternoon. The award was to be presented by Maj. Gen. Harry J. Collins, commanding genera! of [lie Hnlii- bow Division. The Mortal of Honor is for conspicuous gallantry in action near Ml. noliimlo. on tlic- road to Rome With eight men, a machine gun crew mid n few riflemen, he held 900 yards of crucial ground against some 000 Germans counter-attacking for two hours. Brill is credited with preventing the American lines from cracking and saving his battalion from isolation ami destruction. Britt went forward alone through wooded territory, tin-owing 32 of his own grenades and a number taken from (lie enemy. His actions resulted in the capture of four Germans and enabled several Americans to escape. According to the citation accompanying the medal, he personally killed live and womuled an unknown number of Germans, and wiped oiil an enemy machine gun crew, llrllt was wounded, but refused to accept medical attention «ntil ordered to do so by his bnl- illon commander afcr iic buttle. Brill lost an arm as the result of Hie wounds. He already has received the British Military Cross and an Oak Leaf Cluster for his Purple Heart for his action at Ml. rtolnndo.

(ARK.):.COU«1BB NEWS Fulbright Heads For Big Career, Writer Declares NEW YORK, June 5- Whether or not Congressman 1)111 Fulbrlghl succeeds In Ills bid for (lie U. S. Senate In tills summer's Democratic primaries, there Is little doubt that lie is headed for a We political career. That Is the prediction of Jean Libman Block In her profile of the Arkansas representative in tile, currant issue of the quarterly Everybody's Digest. "A streamlined version of the legandnry Arkansas Traveler" is the way Miss Block describes the freshman legislator from Arkansas who achieved nntkmnl and ii>- terimtlona) prominence as author of the resolution which set f> New American foreign policy mid paved the way for tlie Moscow declaration and the Cairo and Teheran conferences. She points out that Congressman Fnlbright's background Includes not only an excellent education but also experience lu business and funning and calls him "the most promising freshman legislator to reach Washington in many a session." Miss Block gives a complete review of Congressman Fnlbrlght's career—from a football star at the University of Arkansas through his first year in Congress. Most amazing of all, she feels, Is that a person with a little wealth and an academic background would be elected from an Ozark mountain district.

They choose tliclr CiiUlni; as « rule because they love chilurcn. uncl luve Influences children. Youngsters, in turn, control Uicir homes nntl parents more tlian they rciilize; in ways they don't know about. Thus a good teacher is a power in the community. Any politician could cut quite a splash if only he would line up all the teachers behind him. The idea is now new. Starts are made In that direction often. Plans to lialter the public schools of America in a bureaucratic treadmill have come before Congress four times since 1037. They have failed every time but each new attempt shows more strength. The most recent one, discussed in this column exactly a year ago. gained enough momentum to get talked about from Bangor to Burktink. Maybe Nine Lives This latest sally on the public school system was led by Senator Lister Hill of Alabama, helping Senator Elljerl D. Thomas of Utah Tlic bill, (S. 3C7) as finally rejected by (.lie 78(,h congress, is dcatl but. the senators' ambitions can still wiggle. HIM f s campaigning now for re-election on a platform of "federal aid to education," and that's been a hobby of Thomas' for a long time. The issue will be revived. Political problems have n way of coming to life repeatedly until they nre cured, anrt this one is not cured. Teachers have a right to earn as much in the classroom as they might Bet I for manual labor In a factory aad.| until teachers' pay is adjusted, state school authorities will have their troubles born of somebody's mistakes; maybe their own.

OIL & REUSING COMPANY T HE reasons arc simple: Our military machine-mightiest in history—gets first call on the nation's available gasoline, of course. You wouldn't have it otherwise. And that vital need is tremendous...FOUR times greater than in 19<f2, and increasing in direct ratio to our intensified military activity. Remember what the papers had to say die other day about a 4000-pIanc raid on Hitler's Berlin? That mission alone took more than 5 million gallons of high octane aviation gasoline— and it's only one small phase of an ever increasing military tempo. 'An armored division requires 25,000 gallons to move one hundred miles; to train a pilot requires 12,500 gallons- enough to last the average automobile 18 years. It takes more than a ton of gasoline to "deliver" a one-ton bomb. 'After these tremendous military needs arc met, there simply isn't enough gas left to kccp;civilian cars running "as usual" The only way to make the available supply go around : is through rationing. The importance of a gasoline rationing system that really works is going to be increasingly great as (he military needs for gasoline continue to multiply. Unfor- lunatcly, we have to face that fact. Rationing is no fun—but a failure of our present system would have dire results. It is to your interest as a good American citizen to fight the "black market" and help make rationing succeed. This is the only way you can be sure of gasoline for your own use in the months to come, ^ HERE'S HOW ,YOU C/VN HELP: Dou'l 'apply for more gas- than you really need.
