The problem of transporting two drugs from Detroit to Tina's home here was solved Tuesday. A Detroit food vending company (Servomation of Detroit, Inc.,) is undertaking the responsibility. The company was not alone as a volunteer Scores of individuals and organizations of' fered to aid in seeing that Tina got the drugs every two weeks from World Medical Relief, Inc. of Detroit. The vending company is es- especially adapted to help Tina. It operates refrigerated trucks The trip to Ypsilanti is a small item in the distribution system of the company's eight Michigan divisions.

The promised drug transportation aid took some of the burden from the Lillie family. Tina's father drives a truck on his day off. The mother also works. This is done to help pay the medical bills.

They are building offices be affiliated with a hospital in order to offer the course. A college-hospital complex could develop an attraction not commonly found except at state universities, but there is a growing trend to such a combination.
