The feature won second place in the cartoon strip category. Award of the medal and $300 was made Thursday at Valley Forge, Pa.

It bears tentative committee sanction. However, another round of hear ings opens Monday. Final committee action is expected early next month. The present draft law expires in July. THE COMPROMISE bill is de signed to prevent any youth being sent into combat or overseas before his 19th birthday. It provides four months' basic training. Leave and travel time is presumed to occupy the other two months. Like a bill approved by the Senate Armed Services Committee and awaiting action in the Senate, the House measure would stretch the present period of service from 21 to 26 months. The Senate bill permits induction of youths of 18, provided all available young men in the 19 through 25 bracket are called first. Both bills differ from the original Pentagon proposal. It called for lowering the draft age to 18, without restrictions. It also provided for universal training.

Rush, vice chairman of the group, had this to say about Geller's Free Press feature: "We do not know who killed Horatio Alger but you have brought him back to life." "The Story of An Ambitious Man . . . who made jobs for thousands through free enter prise," deicts in full page color cartoons, the lives of men who have progressed from rags to riches in the best American tradition. The series has appeared since 1947. SO FAR, Geller has told the cartoon-stories of Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John D. Rockefeller, Walter P. Chrysler, S. S. Kresge, Bernard M. Earuch, C. F. Kettering, R. E. Olds, K. T. Keller, William Knudsen, the Dodge brothers and many others. GELLER NOW is working on a book of the cartoons which already have appeared. He said he will dedicate the book to C. W. Cos-grove, advertising director of the Free Press, because of Cosgrove's encouragement and aid. "The Story of An Ambitious Man" now has 160 sponsors, most of them presidents or board members of Michigan concerns. Geller does the research into the lives of his subjects. He is aided in writing the stories by Len G. Shaw, drama editor emeritus of the Free Press.
