I am very proud to know that thiough my late husband, I am associated with this great work," Mrs. Haupt said. Blaiberg, 58, a retired dentist who .-received Haupt's heart Jan. 2 at Groote Schuur Hospital in Capetown, is the world's longest living heart transplant recipient. James Elbert Singleton, 47, of Fort Worth, Tex., was another man who got a chance to live because someone else cared. Singleton, an aircraft worker, received the heart of Paul Craig Mason, 17, of Long Beach, Calif., Sept. 5. He was given a second chance at life by Mr. and Mrs. Dale Mason, Paul's step parents, after doctors in Long Beach told them their son had suffered irreparable brain damage in a motorcycle accident. "How can I reach Dr. DeBa- key?" asked Mrs. Sarah Mason. Dr. Michael DeBakev has performed several heart transplants at Houston's Methodist Hospital. A telephone call to DeBakey set up the operation. Eddie Darvall, 65, also of South Africa, father of the world's first heart donor, de-nise Darvall, 25, said he Is "very proud" his daughter's heart was used In the Dec. 3, 1967, transplant to Louis Washkansky. "Knowing her heart was used to further rnedicaf science, I have the satisfaction at least of knowing she did not die for nothing," said Darvall. "Even though the recipient, Mr. Washkansky, died, I am proud to know a member of my family contributed to a major breakthrough In transplant surgery." Asked whether other mem second unsuccessful transplant attempt, said both she and her grandchildren should be proud their father had helped prolong the life of another. The heart of Julian Cuello, who died of stomach cancer, was transferred to a 19-year-old girl Oct. 14. The patient died 12 hours later. "I am sure my two grandchildren will feel proud when they understand that their father served to prolong the life of a young girl," said Mrs. Cuello. "With the donation of the heart of my son I felt that his life prolonged that of another. It's a certain kind of consolation," she said. Mrs. Cuello said that "without a doubt" she would give her own heart for a transplant. "I have donated that of my son, and this means much to me," she said. bers of his family would agree to donate their hearts if the chance should come, Darvall said that as a heart sufferer himself, he would be of no use to anyone. "My two sons are still schoolboys and not yet old enough to make serious decisions of this sort," he said. "But we have often discussed the possibility. They're so proud of their late sister that I am sure they wouldn't hesitate should the necessity arise." Darvall said his own heart condition had become so bad friends had urged him to ask for a transplant. "But at 65, with my constitution undermined by shock (of his wife's and daughter's deaths), I am far too frail to be able to survive such drastic surgery," he said. carmen Cuello, mother of the 35-year-old man who donated his heart in Argentina's CLYDE H.

"It's a wondertul tooling;" Mrs. Haupt said from her South African homo. "I suppose this is one of the compensations of being the w ife of a heart donor the feeling someone who was very deal to me is still taking part in life." The majority of relatives of heart donors have indicated they would, if they had their way, make sure there was rover a shortage of donors for future transplant patients, a United Press International survey shows. But there is a shortage. St. Luke's Hospital in Houston has more than 2" potential recipients, Stanford University Medical Center at Palo Alio, Calif., lists a doen, and othpr transplant hospitals around the world say they also have recipients waiting. Mrs. Mary Weil, a spokesman for Royal Victoria Hospital at Montreal, told UPI why the number of would-be recipients continues to climb. "Neither we nor any other hospital, as I see it, can tell whether there will be a scarcity or abundance of potential donors at a givpn time when they are needed," she said. "This hospital is a major accident reception center and because of that, we are more likely than others to be able to provide donors from among Four Arts Merrill C.

We also are site of Montreal Neurological Institute and people who die from brain tumors are good potential heart donors since such injuries do not normally affect the heart," she said. Mrs. Haupt said months of thinking she has done since her husband died of a stroke Jan. 1, when he was only 24 years old, has not changed her belief I hat heart transplants should continue.
