To them, the heart represents February, National Heart Month, and the advances in heart surgery of recent years. More personally, it means .the saving of the life of a child. CALIN CARSON IS A HUSKY six year old boy. He has a sister years o<lder than he, but they are about the same sizfe. He's mischievous and very strong, and you'd never know now that when Calin was three years old he had surgery to correct a Congenital hole in his heart. The Carsons lived at Sioux City then and the operation was performed at Iowa City. They don't talk much about the ordeal unless asked, but they can well understand the- experiences of the other Algona couple who went through much the same thing very recently.
