NEA Service Writer WASHINGTON.— Jolm QuSllin Tilson found a quarter on the side-' walk OUR morning about 40 years aer> and he regards that as the led him along the path of politics ltd hm along the path of politics and power until lie Is now the most likely to ts Speaker of .the House of Representatives- The Republican floor lender was then a student at Yale, trying to work his way through- He had no • jol) on which to keep' going nnd not even money for breakfast. So lie \vas hungry, discouraged and about ready to pive up. But he V (mind that quarter and bought * himself a breakfast, after which f lie felt nil's to cope with the prob- t lems of life, and did. Today Tilson is out in front in the contest to succeed the late Spenker NScholsas Longworlh. but he Is far from assured of that ex- nllecl iwsltion. Administration's .Choice Nevertheless, Tilson will be the administration choice and will be Fuunorted bv a majority.of Repub- licnn consri'essmen. And the in- evcnange for liberalb-ation of the.'House rules and better committee assignments, as they have after bitter contests in he past. 'Tilson is o'nr> of Hoover's, most loval anrl closest friends, distinctly conservative, invariably regular and lhn.=; well onallfied to represent tl"! administration in the Sneaker's chair. He is technically qualified because he is one of the most atle parliamentarians in Whoever the next speaker may be, he will not emial T.ongworth In personal popularity, and so.Tilson will not have as strong personal supnoit for the job. As majority leader, however, he has been in a Ijcsition to make'.many friends and few enemies; he was alwavs svm- pathetic to • well L behnvcd Republican congressmen who sought favors and he always keot his word. He is much more popular.- for. instance, '' than Chairman Bert Bnell of |be .. Rules Committee, ivho may be a :, candidate for Speaker. ''. .

But he has a strong, wiry frame -nnd^-bulks, more than six feet 'tall, i He.-stands(.straight . and wallts with' a- militaib' stride. His moustache is closely cropped. his hair beginning to gray, and his eyebrows bushy. The pockets of his trousers are tailored In front instead of on the sides. He likes to stand with both hoiuls in them or, 1f speaking, with one hand in and the other holding' cut a paper. His. other favorite oratorical gesture Is to throw both arms' into the air as if ho were about to turn, a back-handspring, lie • isn't much- of. an orator. His voice although good for radio purposes is high-pitched and when,he becomes excited it is likely to go badlly off key. He has a terrific temper when aroused.

A pitiful handful of men, principally from Louisiana, Arkansas arid Texas, led by a stalwart Virginia-Tennessee an, swept Santa Anna's proud army from the field of San Jacinto and set the seal of liberty on adcmain soon to be extended from the Louisiana Purchase to the Golden Gate. The soldiers who marched painfully from Gonzalcs to San Jacinto, their families who fled destitute before the invaders, left sons and daughters to develop the magnificent country they had saved for liberty. Oil, a resource undreamed of by Houston, Rusk, Burle. son or Deaf Smith, has, within a single lifetime, contributed more to the material comfort and happiness of millions of people than any other single resource.
