Bronny receive National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution Americanism Award, given to naturalized citizens who show outstanding qualities of leadership, patriotism and service to their community, Sunctay at Williamsfield. It was the first time in history that a husband and wife were so honored. The event was planned by the Spoon River Chapter, DAR, and was held at Williamsfield United Methodist Church. WILLIAMSFIELD - Dr. and Mrs. J. B. Bronny became the first husband and wife team in ttie United States to receive the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution's Americanism Award at Williamsfield United Methodist Church Sunday. Vie reception honoring Dr. and Mrs. Bronny was planned by junior members of the Spoon River (Siapter, DAR, which nominated the two for the award which is given to naturalized citizens who have shown outstanding qualities of trustworthiness, leadership, patriotism and service to the community. Bronny has been Williamsfield's only physician since coming to the community 20 years ago. He is a familiar figure to residents as he malces house calls and checlcs on patients. BOTH BRONNY and his wife were born in Poland, where he received his education as a doctor. Both were imprisoned in concentration camps when the Germans invaded their homeland at the outset of Worid War II. They came to the United States as displaced persons in November 1948, headed for a town in Wisconsin where he was scheduled to become the town's only physician. They wei'e in mid-ocean when they learned that doctors who received their education in a foreign country were required to serve an internship in the United States before they could practice medicine. They located in Oiicago, where he started his Internship at Norwegian American H6spital during the day and attended high aichool classed at night to learn English., Mrs. Bronny worked until she became ill, and the family then moved to ^ Galesburg where he completed hli. internship at Galesburg State Research H(«pltal. Mrs. Addle Carrigan, a Willi^Misfield resident^ was working at the hoapital at that time, and she pleaded with the Bronnys to come to Williamsfield, which was in need of a doctor. THEY SETTLED in the community in 1933 and both were naturalized in January 1956. Since that time it has been a mutual admiration society for the Bronnys, their community and their adopted country. Mrs, Bronny spealcs regularly to student groups throughout the state on the opportunities and freedoms offered in the United States. Speaking in what she calls ''crooked English,'* she reminds students of the advantages of freedom. When she occasionally comes up against students who differ with her, she isn't against pointing out the freedom that allows them to dissent. — The award Was presented by Mrs. Russell Farquer, regent of Spoon River chapter, in ceremonies attended by 200 persons. Rev. Philip Snider gave the invocation, and Rev. Patrick Brennan gave the benediction. Others taking part were Miss Harriett Coe, Mrs, John Snare» Mrs. Leo Johnson, Mrs. Roger Waggoner, Mrs. Gerald Weaver, Mrs. Harold Ewoldt, Mrs. Verne Mount, Mrs. Glen Castle and Mrs. Lyle Johnson. Committee planning the event was Mrs. Leo Johnson, Mrs. Waggoner, Mrs. Greg Kneer and Miss Coe. panel, a joint venture of the mining and environment subcommittees. He also challenged the validity of stripping operations the subcommittee viewed during the past weeicend in a tour of Appalachian coal states! "What this committee was told and shown during its tour joLoun statejastmek was not, in our opinion, representative of the true reclamation practices under existing law in West Virginia/' he said. During a visit to southern West Virginia coal fields, Rep. Patsy Mink, D-Hawall, chairman of the mining subcommittee, called the damage **startling." "It is exploitation of the land," she told newsmen. "It reinforces some of niy beliefs toward stronger reclamation.*' But Wilkinson said the mistakes of the past "are history and bear no relationship whatsoever with modem surface mining and reclamation practices." He said West Virginia today "is effectively preventing repetition of past practices, while at the same time providing for total reclamation of abandoned surface mines." Wilkinson, who is also vice president of the Kingwood (W. Va.) Mining Co., called pending laws for the banning of strip mining "ill - advised and unrealistic. "Any significant loss In surface mining production could not be replaced by deep mining methods," he said.

The visits laboratory will taper off gradually until they are no longer required. *The doctors tell me I can live a normal life," he said.
