Medical units of the United Stales Army are saving more lives of wounded American soldiers in Korea than was ever thought possible. Factors which can be listed as the causes of this are the normal technological advances in medicine, improved techniques in handling: the wounded and use of great quantities of whole blood and plasma. Sadly enough, the people of the United States nre not supporting the Defense Department's blood program. Untold millions of dollars in free publicity and advertising have kept the flow of plasma at only a bare trickle. Seems as if our country is filled with people who feel it their destiny to rise to an occasional crisis. The Red Cross' national organization reports that after crises of various sorts, blood donors abound temporarily. But the every-day business of saving American lives in Korea is much too routine to fan the spark of patriotism in the average citizen's breast. In short, the blood program on a national basis has been crippled severely by the disinterest of the American people. On June -1, the blooclmobile will make its third visit to Blytheville. The glamor of its first trip, when the. Red Cross had more donors thnn it could use. has worn a little thin. In other words, the giving of blood by the poo- pie of Blylheville is now moving into the realm of the routine. But remember, it is a very important thing you do when you give or fail to give blood. It's important to a lot of boys who would like to live lone enough to see the United States again. \Ve hope (he fact that North Mississippi County just barely made its 150- pint goal on the last Rloodmohile trip isn't indicative of a general indifference on the part of our citizenry. l>o your small part in seeing that members of the armed forces can get the treatment they deserve . . . the treatment you would want for yourself or your son under similar circumstances. feat* in national «I«ctions 1« tomething th« disinterested onlooker could not readily «xplain. One would imagine that oomplacency wag an altitude to he anticipated only after a string of successes. The year 1952 is no exception. There are those who feel that corruption in government, high prices, high taxes and assorted other matters are enough by themselves to produce a Republican triumph. But the party hard-heads know better. They're aware that despite all the symptoms of disintegration, there is no proof yet that the Democratic coalition is going to fall apart, They know that any Democratic candidate who can avoid serious defections In the Southern wing of the party is automatically tough to bent. He needs only 112 electoral votes in the rest of the country to win. A Republican must get all the necessary 2Gfi outside the South in most instances. Moreover, it is almost axiomatic in politics that a party riding the crest of a prosperity wave, as the Democrats are today, is a stiff adversary. This time, in addition to all these difficulties, the Republicans have to face not only an opposition nominee, hut n rough and tumble campaigner who will be standing bosicle him throwing his best punches. The name: Harry S. Truman. The President's recent platform appearances leave no doubt he will be swinging from the floor this year. If anybody thinks his blows don't hurt, he ought to recall 1£)<I8. Mr. Truman has a gift for telling catch-worris, for biting phrases that register with the voters and get under the opposition's skin. This knack is still with him. When he ascends the platform, he very conveniently avoids the topics embarrassing to him. What politician does not? But It should be thought, therefore, that he Is destroying his effectiveness. All the evidence suggests the contrary. Republicans who are not afraid to add up the sum of their obstacles had •best include Mr. Truman In the list. He is plenty tough to combat, as the record plainly shows In various Novembers dating back to 1934. If they want to deal with him, they very likely will have to do more than highlight the embarrassing matters he skims over. They'll have to drum up . some good answers fa the charges he delivers with those damaging punch- lines. You can't ignroe the blows that hurt and still expect to win in a breeze.
