first airmen to reach England.

the three tenths of a cent a gallon
allowance granted tank wagon sell-

OPA said its earlier announcement

The next three years were spent

greater part of his internment was

he remained 20 months.
"We were allowed one loaf of black

Dunnond related. "But, of course, we

"Opening one of the sterile dishes
I was working with," he said, "I no-
ticed that the bacteria in it were dy-
ing. I immediately dropped my other
work and began to investigate." He
described in detail the tests that the
penicillin was put through.
Cautioning against the misuse that
comes when the drug is on market for
everyone's use, Sir Alexander said
that cases should be diagnosed to de-
termine the value of penicillin treat-
ment so that it will not be wasted
on bacteria insensitive to it.
He credited the United States with
developing its mass production. In
Great Britain and Russia the drug
has not been produced in sufficient
quantity for general use, he said, al-
though it has gone with medical units
into every country where Allied ar-
mies have been.

Dr. Gaimnitz
Gives Advice To
Rural Schools
By The Associated Press
MT. PLEASANT, Mich., June 13-
Rural schools must improve their
public relations if they intend to
prevent all their competent teach-
ers from being lured into higher
paying city jobs, in the opinion of
Dr. Walter H. Gaumnitz, senior spe-
cialist in charge of rural education
for the Federal Office of Education.
Dr. Gaumnitz will head a confer-
ence of rural educators selected from
all parts of the nation who will meet'
in Detroit June 14-16 to complete 4
book on public relations for rural
schools. He is visiting here with Dr.
M. L. Smith, head of the rural edu-
cation department of Central Michi-
gan College.
"The real faults of rural educa-
tion," he said, "lie in the fact that
we never encourage the four-year
students to accept rural school jobs,
but ship them off to the cities where
they can get more money."
