(Lock photo, Kayenay engraving) Life-Saving Plasma Given on Spot Whenever Needed From the steaming fox-holes o£ the south Pacific to hospital planes ligh above the north Africa deserts, blood plasma has trickled down lender rubber tubes of life into the veins of wounded fighting men. The precious yellow powder, processed from the blood contributed o the Red Cross Blood Donor Service by' millions of volunteer donors, as seen life-saving service un-* 7- der conditions ranging from the idy, white-tiled security of big ;eneral hospitals to the death- aden danger of an invasion beach- lead. Carried by every army medical unit and by all naval ·essels doctor larg or enough to have a pharmacist's mate aboard, plasma has gone into ac- ion on the high seas, at medical tations less than 500 yards from he front lines, in ambulances and as litters are carried out of front ines. At Salerno, according to re- iorts from Red Cross correspon- and Lieutenant General Clark, commander of the dents Mark th army the fishting was so fast anil furious that the wounded could not be kept in one place enough for a transfusion. Medical corpsmen trotted alongside the litters, holding the plasma bottles aloft so the frans- 'usions could be given nevertheless. During the same battle, a news photographer wounded by a Ger- Tian sniper, received a plasma transfusion in the ruins of a house while enemy tanks clanked down the road a few yards away. Fox-hole transfusions are fairly common. Medical corpsmen in the Pacific report many such instances during patrols where they prowled through the jungles in search of wounded men. Transfusion equipment is so mobile that it may be hung from the branch of a tree or the butt of a rifle stuck into the earth by its bayone. Field Director Jimmy Stewart of the Red Cross reported seeing empty plasma cans lying around the dressing stations at Buna Mission in such profusion "they made the place look like Boy Scout encampment had been living on beans for a week." One transfusion w a s given Lieutenant Raymond J. Herbert of Brooklyn, New York, on a North African beach in full view of enemy snipers.' A marine medical corpsman from the Solomons told of placing the plasma bottle on the edge of a fox-hole and hoping "no stray bullet would clip most dramatic * * * * * THESE LEFT ON 6:30 A. M.

(Lock photo, Kayeifay engraving) PLASMA UNDERGROUND --Blood plasma, processed from blood collected by the American Ret! Cross, is administered in strange places. Here in an underground dug-out built by the marines in a south Pacific island hot spot, plasma is being given to a wounded marine in the top bunk Note the container on a hook at the head of his bunk. story of plasma under fire is told by Private David C. Carney, 26, of Wakefield, Mass., who related how a transfusion was given a gravely wounded soldier in one fox-hole by the attending physician in another while a Japanese sniper sprayed bullets overhead. "I went with Captain Whelan (Captain Edmund L. Whelan of East Boston, Mass.) to attend Private Topping who was critically wounded," he said. "His company had been trapped in enemy territory and the Jap snipers were taking a shot at anything and everything. We found Topping in a fox-hole; the Jap bullet had gone right through the side of his stomach. "He had lost plenty of blood and was going fast. Cnplain Whelan decided on an immediate transfusion. The foxhole couldn't hold both of us. I ripped open the plasma box and gave it to the captain, who crept to another foxhole a foot away. We had to kep low because those snipers just sprayed bullets over the ground. Topping just laid there and the blood came over from the other foxhole, with Captain Whelan handling things. It saved his life." Medical units attached to army air bases have equipped their ambulances specially for transfusion purposes so no time is lost between the landing ot a plane and the administering of plasma to a wounded man. So widespread is this practice, that it has been reported from air field in both England and China. A navy doctor. Lieutenant Edward Behr, of Weehawken, New Jersey, crossed a heavy sea in a dinghy to administer plasma to 2 merchant seamen burned almost to death by an exploding boiler on a sabotaged axis freighter taken over by the United States after the declaration of \var. He gave the men transfusions while the steam still clung to the upper parts of the engine- room. Perhaps this immediate evail- ability of transfusions under almost any conditions is the reason Navy Chaplain Arthur C. Mc- Qunid of Lowell, Mass., himself among the thousands who owe their lives to plasma, was able to report "those still unhurt have a feeling of security in battle for they know that they have a chance now if they are hit."

WAR CHEST USE TO BE REPORTED N APRIL SESSION Report on Conference of War Fund Members Is Given by Milligan Cerro Gordo county is one of 86 iut of the 99 counties in Iowa vhich have exceeded their goals n the National War Fund drive nd a report on utilization of the unds is to be given at the annual meeting here in April, it was tated Wednesday evening. People who ask, "What is the nest doing with its money now hat there is 'no unemployment nd no relief?" will receive their nswer at that meeting. The story of the Community 'nest, which has functioned for 1 years in this community, ex- landing to the increased needs of he National War Fund the past 2 'ears, was presented by Lester Vlilligan, secretary, at the regular meeting of the Council of Social Agencies at,the_Cerro Gordo ho- el Wednesday noon. The National War Fund goal vas $125,000,000. Already $126,200,000 has been raised with some pring campaigns yet to report, \Ir. Milligan stated. The National War Fund besides providing help for needy in war orn countries, is doing a budget sifting job, which is a protection o the givers of America, as well as insuring a more equitable* dis- ribution of funds, he said. As an example he pointed to the India famine Relief, w h i c h soughl $5,000,000 from the fund. Investigation established that large funds .vere already available and thai 200,000 was the top figure which could be spent to do the famine any good. The USD is the biggest agency of the National War Fund, with a budget of $61,000,000. This was recently increased by $4,000,001 o provide for more camp shows which tour the camps at home and in foreign countries. There have been increased from 8 to nearly 60. The next campaign, the speaker pointed out, is not expected to exceed $125,000,000, which was he goal in the fall of 1943. The :tate as a whole is well over its quota, he said. Leaders of the National War Fund definitely think of it as imergency agency which will ass with the emergency itself, yhen this is true and the emo- ional appeal for the war agencies is taken away, local chests will be confronted with the problem ol selling: their agencies anew to the public. Those attending the recent Midwest Chest Conference in Chic.x, were greatly impressed with the contributions made by labor leaders who are taking an active par n Chest leadership. Both the Na- :ional War Fund and Community Chests and Councils, as well as :he large city Chests, have men on their staffs from the ranks of organized labor who are interpret the work to the rank and fill of their members and vice versa One of the speakers at the ches conference, Mr. Milligan statec was E. A. Roberts, Philadelphia president of the Community Chests and Councils, who spoke at a ches meeting here some years ago. Fresh from conferences with to; men in the army about condition among our soldiers, Mr. Robert stated that men are demanding higher type of entertainment i this war. The 2nd and 3rd rat shows are being removed from th circuits in the camps. Only th best is good enough. The army i seeking 1.000 small Steinwa pianos for distribution all ove the world. All over the world whereve entertainment is presented amon our service men, he said, an there is present a WAC. a WAVE an army nurse or a Red Cros worker, the men shout down smi and demand clean lines. Thes men are idealizing their wome folks back home, and don't wan those ideals smeared with dirt. It is, he declared, a tribute t the work of the Y's, Scouting, th Settlement houses and the othe character building agencies whic have worked among the boys \vhc as young men, compose the bul of the nation's armed forces to day.
