Loma Linda Heart Mission cites Pakistan chief President Mohammad Ayub Khan was recently made an associate member of Mended Hearts, Inc. by Loma Linda University's American Heart Slission Dr. C. Joan Coggin, Assistant Pro fessor of Medicine and heart to m cardiologist, conferred the h'--ir- ary membership at Prcs ent Khan's estate in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. In praising the seven-man team the president said. "I have heard only good things about your »vork here in Pakistan, and hope that you have inspired our physicians to even greater efforts in this field." Dr. Ellsworth E. Wareham, Professor of Surgery at Loma Linda University School of Medicine and chief surgeon of the Heart Mission, replied, "Without the help given us by your very competent physicians, we could not have accomplished much in our stay here. Many of your surgeons spent scores and hundreds of hours working with us in surgery." During a month in Pakistan, the team performed 44 surgicaJ operations, most of them open heart, with but one mortality. "Some of the cases," said Dr. Wareham, "were among the most difficult that we have done anywhere. Plans for the Heart Mission originated in the United States Embassy in Karachi when it was deluged with requests from parents of children with defective or diseased hearts. The requests, from many parts of Pakistan, were sparked by newspaper reports of successful heart surgery performed last fall on a 3'/i-year old Pakistani girl, Afshan Zafar, at the University's White Memorial Medical Center in Los Angeles. Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson arranged air transport for the team and for a ton of special equipment needed for the mission. The sharing of surgical techniques involved in the use of special open heart equipment with Pakistani physicians and surgeons MISSION IN THE CARIBBEAN The paths of these people converge in a suspense- charged story in the new sequence of the adventure strip DAN FLAGG starting July 1. Don Flogg, U.S. Marine Corps Major and a chief trouble-shooter, will find his life linked with two extraordinary women by a chain of events that Washington hos already set into motion. Blonde Marsha Palmafier has a winsome appearance that leads one to believe, deceptively, that she is likely a debutante of a few seasons ago. Actually she is a representative of our security agency. Her assignment is to help Flogg prepare for his hazardous venture into enemy territory and she proves a relentless taskmaster. Will romance enter the relationship? Exotic Marguer'rta is a fiery. Cuban dancer adored by her fans not only for her brilliant performances but for her valor in the Revolution too. Lately, however. Marguerite has flared up against the political powers that control her beloved homeland. Is she to be a defector — one who holds the key to information vital to our national defense? Danger is accompanied by the click of castanets in this new chapter of Coribbean intrigue beginning Monday, July 1, in Dan FlaggI On the comic page Redlands Daily Facts was an important objective of the mission according to Dr. David B. Hinshaw, Dean of the Loma Linda University School of Medicine. In order to accommodate more Pakistani physicians than those who viewed from the operating room itself, closed circuit television equipment was installed in the Seventh-day Adventist Hospital in Karachi, where the surgery was done. Blood Problem Securing sufficient fresh blood for the complicated operations was a major problem. Government and volunteer agencies joined in the effort to persuade donors to part with precious blood. Prisoners were granted 15 days of grace in exchange for a pint of blood. There is no blood bank in Karachi, team members report. With Drs. Wareham and Coggin at the president's estate were F. Lynn Artress, Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology; Wilfred M. Huse, resident in surgery at ^Vhite Memorial Hospital; Lester H. Gibson, heart-lung machine technician; and Jerry Wiley, Loma Linda University administrative assistant. The teani was also lauded at receptions sponsored by the United States Information Service and Pakistan Medical Society. Following the ""meeting with President Ayub Kan, Heart Mission members were luncheon guests of Major Saleem A. Meah, Durector of Medical Services for the Armed Forces in Pakistan. The team left Pakistan shortly after the presidential welcome and is currently doing open heart surgery at the Seventh-day Adventist Hospital at Bangkok, Thailand. A similar performance is also scheduled for Taipei, Taiwan.

Postmaster points to usual errors in vacation mail Redlands Postmaster Daniel J. Stanton calls attention to the fact that most of the highways across the country will soon be full of vacationers going in all directions. The mails will soon be filled with all kinds of messages to folks and friends who were left behind. It can be taken for granted that some of the messages will be improperly addressed, some will carry inadequate postage, and some will be devoid of both postage and address, Mr. Stanton says. "Experience indicates that this will happen thousands of times — sometimes when the message doesn't seem to matter much and the attachment is of small intrinsic worth, sometimes when both the message and the attachment are obviously of considerable importance." The most persistently troublesome tourist item for Postmaster Stanton and his associates is the post card with an attachment but without sufficient postage. Occasionally, the mailer will not know that his attachment gives the card first-class status; sometimes the printer will complicate the situation by indicating that a 4c stamp is sufficient. The printer was right before some other merchant affixed to the card a trinket advertising a national park, or a bag of ore, or a spoonful of sacral earth, or some other geographically representative gadget. Postmaster Stanton says that the rule for avoiding trouble with tourists' mail is simple. It post cards with appendages contain a handwritten-«r typewritten raes sage, they require postage at the first-class letter rate of 5c per dunce. If they do not contain a typewritten or handwritten message, they require the third-class postage rate of 4c for the first two ounces and 2c for each additional ounce or fraction of an ounce. When insuffi'cient postage is used, more happens than the delay of the item in question. A lot of people get their feelings hurt. And ail who are offended join forces eventually in getting mad at the postal service. So when you are far away and want to remember friends and folks at home, don't forget that post cards with attachments require first-class postage. If you have any questions about this or any other postal matter, call 7932171 before you leave, or inqmre at any post office information window along your route. For Kennedy, what next? By Doris Heeson ROME.—The Observer in London has warned Britain's distinguished week-end visitor from Wadiington that he will be visiting there "a crippled Prime Minister, presiding over a Cabinet of rival hcurs-apparent and leading a demoralized party." This is not quite the welcoming atmosphere a rich uncle ought normally to expect, especially after he has yielded to please for a show of family solidarity against a rival clan in France and the foe in Moscow. Nor does it suggest that anything very constructive can be accomplished in the President's conversations with the Prime Minister. The fact that those conversations will take place on Harold Macmillan's secluded estate. Birch Grove in Sussex, is a tacit acknowledgment that the situation is embarrassing. The President apparently preferred it that way lest he be accused of seeming to help the Conservatives in a sharp electoral struggle which the poUs indicate Labor will win anj^vaj'. The Macmillan government's domestic worries do not, of course, invalidate the enterprises to which the United States and Britain are committed. There is the test-ban treaty soon to be discussed in Moscow about which Macmillan has been enthusiastic. There is the nuclear surface fleet in the Atlantic, presumably agreed upon firmly at Nassau, toward which he seems tepid. It is possible that Kennedy wants to make sure that Macmillan. a politician who. prides himself on his personal survival value, does not forget the role Britain is expected to play in such affairs. The President is show ing that for his part he will not allow a demestic crisis to keep iiim from pressing international problems despite critics at home. It is the kind of nudge that speaks i for iteslt. The author of "Why England Slept" could well have confidence in his own on-the-scene judgments of what he can expect from that country now. He is already on notice that his own loyal opposition has its doubts about his whole journey. Then there is the element of simple curiosity. England in a fit of morality makes a good show, which is at least bemg fully developed in her press. And all the news unfit to print will cer tainly be shared with the visiting firemen. The great reception the President is getting in Germany indicates that the British would even turn their heads away from Christine Keeler in order to cheer him. It is by his own motion that the announced schedule did not allow for it. Two years ago the President also came to Europe with wliat seems now, despite Nikita Khrushchev's sour menaces at Vienna, an almost lightsome air. The interval has been full of disappointments, the oii leaders hang on everywhere and the French one opwly obstructs United States policy. Even Khrushchev is being challenged by Red China. The fresh applause and old home week in Ireland suggest that the President's popularity remains high, but great expectations have given way to cautious questions about what next (Copyright, 1963, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.)
