Fight For Home In A Foreign Uniform Fort Bragg?At least one Fort Bragg soldier is fighting for his country in a foreign uniform. He is Private Emil Reith, former Checho slovakian soldier, who is now a mem ber of the garrison at this largest of artillery posts. Private Reith considers himself lucky for at least two reasons. The first is that he, unlike his brothers who are now in German labor bat talions in Hungary, was able to flee from Czechoslovakia in the scarce interval of time between the Nazi occupation of the Sudentenland and their acquisition of the rest of Pri vate Reith's homeland. The second is that he is now privileged to be a member of one of the armies which will eventually restore the Czechs, who Private Reith says are conquer ed but not beaten, to their former free statue. Private Reith may prove to be | verv valuable tn lln/?l?a Qam #/>?? km s net unfamiliar with German Fifth Columnists and their methods. His last few weeks in Czechoslovakia were spent in rounding up a group )f these men whom he discovered ind turned over to the Czech police, with arrests resulting. By the time hey were caught, however, it was .00 late?so late, in fact, that Emi) ieith, acting on information he had icquired, left for the United States. Private Reith, who celebrated his 15th birthday on the day that he was nterviewed at Fort Bragg, com >ares life in the Army of the United States very favorably with his ex stence in the Czech Army. He was urprised to get butter on the table, :elery and lettuce and tomato sal ids served in a company mess, real ream in real coffee for breakfast, ind the abundance of good food that s characteristic of every mess hall n our American army. He wishes, lowever, that the barracks of this irmy were located, as were his bar acks in Czechoslovakia, within the ity limits of large cities instead of icing 011 reservations.

Our schedules, where it best serves the needs of all, will be combined with those of other bus companies. Carolina Trailways is trying in every way to aid In the con servation of vital rubber and materials Per passenger, per mile we use only a small per cent of the rubber required by private cars . . . and our average mileage per tire is almost twice so great as that of a private car.
