Page 8-Saturday, August 22, 1964—The Express, Lock Haven, Pa. A NEW BORN INFANT Is aided In Its straggle for life In an incubator in the nursery of the Lock Haven Hospital. Many of the United Fund dollar* given the hospital go toward offsetting the cost of maternity and infant care, assuring those United Fund Dollars at Work... who cannot pay that the mother and baby receive the same kind of efficient and friendly treatment afforded all who bring new life into the world. Charity Care at Hospital, Financed by UF, Supplements State Aid to III ' (Second in a Series) Hospital costs are high enough, you say? Close investigation would show the cost of hospital care could go still higher if the expense for charity cases were added to the cost of your paid-for stay in the hospital ... as much as $2 a day more per patient, according to Lock liaven Hospital administrator Albert W. Speth. "The only reason we don't have to charge the people who do pay their own way more is because of the money the hospital gets from the United Fund," says Mr. Speth. Should people who can't pay for care be turned away? That question is easily answered with another. Would you turn away a sick child, mother-to- be, an invalid elderly widow? Could you? Few of us could and that's why we find it easier to help by giving the United Way. We have an obligation to those members of our community who find it difficult to meet the ever- rising hospital expenses with .which they may be confronted. -..-.. • * • * • Doesn't the hospital get "state aid?" "Yes," Mr. Speth says, "but not enough to offset the charity cost of the Lock Haven Hospital. State reimbursement programs won't even pay for half of the indigent care we give to local people. During the last year alone, the hospital had a loss of over $48,000 after state aid was applied," he said. "And, on top of this, we had over $38,000 dollars in bad . debts, from people who won't pay even when we send our collection agency." Actually, the United Fund money given the Lock Haven Hospital won't come near balancing these losses, but who could deny the help it gives the hospital in keeping normal costs at a reasonable level? A hospital may very well be the most important asset a community possesses. Many times, it represents the difference between life and death to a person who must be taken where a hospital is available. Its very existence here means an uncountable wealth of important health care to the ill and indigent. It Personals Mr. and Mrs. Richard Colbourne and son Gass, of Scolts- dale, Ariz., arrived Thursday for a visit with Mrs. Colbourne's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alvin F. Strump, 121 N. Second St. The Colbournes expect to be here until Tuesday when they will leave for Morocco, Ind., to visit with Mr. Colbourne's family, en- route to Scottsdale. Mr. and Mrs. Jan Blankenship, of Rochester, N.Y., are visiting with Mrs. Blankenship's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur H. Shaffer, 634 Bellefonte Ave. The two couples will leave Monday morning for a two-week vacation to the World's Fair and French Canada. The Blanken- sh'ps, who expect to return to Lock Haven after the trip, will conclude their stay here after Labor Day. Remick Posts Bail Delbert Remick, 23, of 103 Myrtle St., arrested on a charge of public indecency, was given a hearing yesterday before Justice of the Peace Harry R. Callahan who set bail at $500. Remick posted the bond and was released. also means a great deal to the local economy, too. Business lias no interest in a community without adequate health facilities. Moreover, the hospital plays an important role in other United Fund agencies and their continued availability to those in need.

Flying Farmerette Gets Piper Award MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — A Lansing, Mich., woman, Mrs. Dale C. Ruth, received the award for flying more hours during th elast year than any other woman in the International Flying Farmers organization. Mrs. Ruth was selected at the group's 19th annual convention here. She flew 332 hours. Although she did not attend the convention, W. T. Piper Sr., president of the Piper Aircrafi Corp., Lock Haven, Pa., said the trophy and certificate woulc be, sent to her. The convention drew more than 1,000 farmers, their wives and families from throughoul the U.S. and Canada. More than 250 planes touched down at nearby Opa-locka Airport for the six day event. It runs Aug. 16-21 ion between the hospital and ,he Red Cross Blood Bank, the Crippled Children's Committee, Community Service Nurses and he Children's Aid Society. The Salvation Army also is involved with the hospital when the need arises. Few look forward to lengthy stays in the hospital or the cost of such stays. Nearly everyone wishes the cost wasn't as high as it appears to be. But, the lospital is a non-profit institution and the costs of operation must be met. "One of the ways we can all lelp keep costs down arid still 'urnish care to those in need when the time comes is to give as generously as possible thai one time when the United Fund solicitor calls," said Mr. Speth. "I think everyone realizes the lospital's importance to the community," he said, "and the ime to remember it most is when we are asked to contribute to the United Fund."
