Area residents gam *305 to Heart Fund Hempstead County residents made memorial gifts(totaling $305, an all-time high, to the Arkansas Heart Associations Memorial Fund for the fiscal year ending June 30. According to figures released today by Arkansas Heart. The memorial chairman in Hempstead County is Mrs. Floyd Leverett at the Citizens National Bank in Hope. Contributions to this fund are used for the Heart Association s programs of public and professional education, community service and research. These services provided by Arkansas Heart have added importance when the totals for cardiovascular diseases in Arkansas are considered. Statewide, more than 12,000 die annually, and in this county 138 deaths are traced to heart disease. In both instances, the deaths attributed to car* diovascular diseases are more than all the other causes combined. Heart Fund memorials may be made in memory of someone at the time of their death. Contributions also may be made at other times—in honor of birthdays, get-well, anniversaries, graduations and similar special occasions. Anyone wishing to make a memorial contribution may do so by contacting the county's memorial chairman.

Michael Samuels is lay leader, Mrs. Gladys Samuels is Sunday School secretary, and Mrs. John Lloyd is memorials chairperson, The church was organized in 1885 with W. P. Burke, William B. Clay, Dr. Whipple and Mr. Honeycutt as trustees.

Stophs. Only Willie Burke remains of those who built the church. Sunday School will follow the worship service. The Rev. Paul H. Lyons will serve the church as pastor, temporarily. The revival of the church has been under the superintendency of the Rev. D, Mouzon Mann of the Hope District. Demo convention will take up charter issue WASHINGTON (AP) - The last preliminary bout to the Democratic party's mini- convention begins Saturday in Kansas City with the drafting of a proposed party charter. Old party antagonisms could produce the first volley in another intraparty battle, depending on how well the charter commission does in compromising the remaining sore issues. The Saturday and Sunday sessions wind up the work of the commission, which was created by the reform wing during the 1972 presidential campaign and directed to draw up the first formal charter for a modern political party. The final version will be voted on in December by the party's first midterm convention, also in Kansas City. A tentative charter has been circulating since March to allow support or opposition to specific planks to develop. Fights are expected to come in three major areas: The manner of electing national harty chairmen, whether to continue the midterm convention idea and creation of a judicial council to referee party disputes. For the most part, the charter formalizes long-standing structures and procedures. But there are some uuDortant innovations, including some- thing of a Democratic bill of rights which guarantees open access to the party for "all who desire to support the party and who wish to be known as Democrats." Two competing formulas would change the system for electing national party chairmen, both aimed at avoiding past conflicts but taking different approaches. The leading plan would provide for election of the national chairman just before and just after each presidential campaign. This would allow the party's presidential nominee to pick a chairman of his choice to head the party during his campaign. But it also would avoid the embarrassment the party went through after the last presidential election when the chairman, Jean Westwood, was ousted after Sen. George McGovern's landslide defeat. An automatic post-campaign election would allow the choice of a new chairman with better party support without the necessity of first throwing the old one out. However, an alternative supported by the staunchest reformers would remove the whole thing from the influence of presidential politics by having the chairman elected after each campaign.
