THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1985 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINB Chicago Society Girls Gather Breast Milk for Hospital Bank By FRANK CARET AP Science Reporter CHICAGO (AP) — Society girls of the Junior League are running one of the nation's most unusual milk routes, the American Academy of Pediatrics was told yesterday. Junior Leaguers o£ suburban Evanslon cruise around in automobiles, pick up "spare" breast milk from nursing mothers at their homes and deliver it to a hospital " mi11r K »- 1 '" *aid premature babies. "milk bank" to Dr. E. Robbins klmball of Evanston Hospital told the academy that two years' experience with the "premature babies milk bank" at that hospital "has already proved that It is both beneficial and practicable to have every premature and 'problem' infant receive breast milk during his hospital stay, regardless of his mother's ability to supply his needs." Mothers who donate milk for the bank, "pump" it themselves in their homes, using an electrical breast pump furnished by the Junior League. The society girls, offering to help in running the milk bank, purchased 22 electric pumps at a cost of $120 each—and they keep them In busy operation. They also teach mothers to bottle the milk and refrigerate it. Picked Up Daily On the "local" Evanston milk route, milk is picked up daily in liquid form and used for routine feeding at the premature nursery. On the "suburban" route — cover- ing 10 communities near Evanston — milk is picked up twice weekly in the frozen condition. This milk is banked until needed for emergency use, when it is thawed, sterilized and distributed. Dr. Klmball said there are six other known "milk banks" in the United States "but the Evanston milk bank is the only one in America that is absolutely free." There is no charge by the donating Turk Papers Are Re-Opened ISTANBUL, Turkey UP! — Three Istanbul newspapers reopened yesterday after a two-week closure ordered by the military command covering the city under martial law. All were suspended for publishing matter considered likely to incite the population. mothers and that Los Angeles, Newark, N.J., and Wilmington, Del., charge for the administered milk if the patient is able to pay. San Francisco, Boston and Chicago report that they give the milk free, he said. Godfrey Pays Flying Fine WASHINGTON W — Television star Arthur M.

Eye-Level Ovens Intrigue Visiting Russian Builders *ly JOHN B. DUHANT BOSTON MV-An electric oven at eye level height, to avoid stooping, caught the attention of visiting Russian construction experts yesterday during a tour of a housing development at nearby Braintree. The 10 Russians, visiting the U.S. under State Department auspices, are spending three days as guests of the Home, Builders Assn. of Greater Boston and the Rental Housing Assn. of the Boston Real Estate Board. Their program called for visits to Granite Park development, a community of ranch-type homes selling in the neighborhood of $12,500, at Braintree, about 10 miles south of Boston, and to Massachusetts Institute of Technology at Cambridge. Entering one of the model homes at Braintree, they seemed surprised to see wallpaper and one commented through an interpreter that in a previous housing inspection at Washington they had found most walls painted. It was explained that painting is cheaper than papering. When they came to the electric oven, one visitor remarked that he liked it very much and the interpreter quoted another as saying: "Turkey is better than chicken in the oven.". Herbert Simpson, sales manager of the development, quoted one of the visitors: "Why do you givej them such good quality wood (ma-| hogany) when you can give them i inferior material?" Simpson said the Russian apparently couldn't understand mahogany in a workman's home. The sales manager said he replied that the builders tried to provide the best home possible. Polio Victim To Get Bicycle VENICE, Calif, (flf—Nine-year-old Lee Munsell, a polio victim, was heartbroken when his bicycle was stolen recently. Yesterday he had his choice of 23 offers to replace the bike. "You forget, sometimes, that people are so good, so very, very good," his mother, Mrs. Maxine Munsell, said. The offers came flooding in after the story of the theft was published. She said the family will accept one of the offers because her son, with.weakened legs, needs a bike to get to school. Lee's father, Edward Munsell, 35, an aircraft plant electrical engineer, is himself slowly recovering from polio.

TROUBLE-SHOOTER—Ait- er Egypt announced its de* cision to buy arms from Russia and Czechoslovakia, Assistant Secretary of State George V. Allen suddenly departed for Cairo. Although the State Department said only that Allen would "discuss current problems" there's little doubt that the No. 1 "problem" is the arms purchase. The acquisition of jet bombers, heavy tanks, heavy artillery and naval vessels by Egypt could spark bitter new fighting with Israel.
