The, ui.ils are the 936th Field Artillery Battalion, and the 142nd Field'Artillery Uroup. The 9C6th, with batteries at Rogers. Benlon- ville, Berryville and Harrison, served for a year in Korea and was rated the "shootingesf outfit on the Korean front. The 142nd, ordered to active duty a few days after the 936th, served at Fort Bragg. N. C., before going to Germany as a part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization forces. Most officers and men of the two organizations have been released from active duty. Capl. Carmen Lierly of Fayetle- ville said ifiis afternoon that the 936th is scheduled for re-activation September 10, while Headquarters and Headquarters Battery of the 142nd will be re-Or- ganizrd September 22, according lo present plans.

Captain Lierly said men interested in joining the units may contact him at the National Guard Armory between 8 a. m. and 5 p. m. weekdays. A limited number of positions will be available, he said. Men who v.'ish to become charter members must sec Lierly not later than next Monday. Veterans will come into the units with the rank they held at discharge. Murry May Act Against Brand Name Purchasing Little Rock-^Pj-Atly. Gen. Ike Murry said today that, if it's legally possible, his office will act to stop proposed state purchase of highway building machinery by brand name. Murry said he -had not /et been asked for an official opinion on whether such purchases are legal. The State Highway Commission has asked bids on lhre_ brands of motor graders--Gallon, Warco and Austin-Western. "According to the invitation," the attorney general said, "I don'l sea how there could be any competition In bidding. "Whether it's legal or not, this is on* of the practices deplored by the Highway Audit Commission. It is not to the best interests of the state to purchase machinery or anything else on that basis." Dismissal Of Achejon Demanded By Legion New York-(/P)-The American Legion convention today adopted a resolution demanding the dismissal of Secretary of State Dean AchesTM and "those in his department found wanting in the proper ictivation of their duty to their country.* Adopted overwhelmingly by a voice vote, the resolution declared that the State Department requires "new and stalwart leaders" and asserted "our patience is exhausted. We demand immediate attention to this ell Important subject. We accept nothing less." Sea Spanned In Record 605 M.P.H, Crossing They Give Blood As Memorial To Korean Victim Buffalo, N. Y.-W-More than 300 friends and relatives of a Buffalo sailor, killed in Korea are giving their blood to the Red Cross in a memorial to him. Robert A.

Among the blood donors yesterday were Bergman's father and three of, his brothers. John Rankin Is Defeated In Thomas Abernethy Beats Old-School Yankee-Denouncer Jackson, Miss.-(/P)-Rep. J o h n Rankin, Ihe last of Mississippi's old-school white supremists and denouncer of Yankees, has lost his seat to his former colleague, Rep. Thomas Abernethy. Rankin and Abernethy were opponents because the state legislature combined their districts last April to eliminate a congressional seat losl in Ihe 1930 census. Rankin conceded defeat early today after unofficial returns from 341 of the districl's 358 precincts in yesterday's state Democratic primary showed: Abernethy 26,903. Rankin 20.568. Abernethy's victory .stalement said he had been Rankin's friend during his own 10-year tenure in Congress and "I regret we found ourselves in the same district, thus making our opposilion unavoidable." Rankin, chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, was co-autKor of the bill creating the Tennessee Valley Authority and author of the measure creating the permanent House Committee on Un-American Activities. Abernethy is a senior member of the House Agriculture Committee. · Mississippi voters kept the state's bone-dry prohibition by turning down a county-option liquor proposal. Sixty-seven of the 82 counties were against county option; 15 favored it. In other races U. S. Sen. John Stennis led in every county to win his bid for reelection against William Davis, and Congressmen John Bell Williams, Arthur Winstead and William Colmer, incumbents, rolled over all opposition lo win new terms U Congress.

Texarkana Bus Strike Brings The Legion Hos Fun Drivers Are Hired To Replace Members Of Walkout Group Texarkana, Ark. -(/P)- Striking drivers of, the Texrkana Bus Company today picketed the firm's office and garage. Ed Mitchell, presidci.t of the company, hired bus drivers to re- ! place the striking members of the AFL Amalgamated Street, Electric Railway and Motor Coaches Em- ployes Union, and said that as soon as he hired 12 drivers he would attempt to resume operating the buses. He said he expects to have the buses in operation "sometime this week." Four driv- .crs were hired yesterday. M. J. Smith, secretary of the union's local, said picket lines were established because the company was hiring non-union drivers. He declared the union hoped further applicants would not cross the picket lines. Mitchell said he did not believe the pickets would slow up applicants, and asserted police protection would be requested if trouble occurred.

Three Heroic Soldiers In Korea Help Allies Capture Old Baldy From Communists With Second Division, Korea (IP) - Three heroic soldiers of the U. S.

Ned Stewart, attorney for the company, said: "If we felt there was any possibility ot reaching a salisfactory agreement with the union we would make no efforts to employ replacements. But as the situation now.-itnnit there is no possibility of reaching any agreement." The company once offered the striking working a five-ccnl hourly wage increase. The union re- jecled the offer and asked for a 25-cent hour increase at the beginning of the strike, Augusl 10. The company has said il cannol afford a wage boosl. Springdale To Open Hospital habit." I The 23rd Infantry Regiment's A Company was pinned down by heavy Communist morlar and ar- llllery fire on a finger of Ihe hill. Cpl. Viclor Espinoza, El Paso, Texas, and his squad leader gathered all the hand grenades they could carry and charged toward the crest hoping to knock out some of the Red guns. The rest of the company gave as much supporting fire as possible from their heavily shelled positions. The squad lender was hit on thc way up. Espinoza administered first aid, grabbed more hand grenades and an automatic rifle and stormed back up the hill. This time Lt. W. V. Vaushn, his platoon leader, went with him.

Marshall Are Assailed Will Not Submit To Pressures, Governor Warns Organization New Yoik-OP)-Gov. Adlai Sle- ! venson accused the attackers of Gen. George C. Marshall today of hiding under a cloak of patriotism which he called "the last refuge of scoundrels." Thc Democratic presidential nominee did not use any name*,, but he left no doubt that one of thc main targets of his bluer blast was Republican Sen. Joseph Me* Carthy of Wisconsin--one-time recipient of an American Legion award for Americanism.
