"With complete disregard for his own personal safety and despite the many hazards involved, Lt.

"After making a return flight below tree-top level into a partially cleared area to drop critically needed water, food and medical supplies for the survivers, Lt. Leister flew a small two-place Bell helicopter and landed in the severely limited landing space in an effort to demonstrate the possibility of landing in that area and effecting the rescue of the crash victims by helicopter. "This bold leadership and courageous action which he displayed thrroughout this rescue led to the successful evacuation of eight.sur- vivors. Lt.

Since that time, facilities have been provided at the Armstrong County Memorial Hospital to make such transfusions and a number of "RH" babies owe their lives to similar treatment given at the local institution in the past 22 months. Discovery of the RH factor in human blood by Drs. Karl Landsteiner .and Alexander Wiener just 20 years ago was one of the significant medical advances of our time. Their lengthy studies and research over a period of years uncovered that fact, and because a similar factor was found in tests of the Rhesus monkey the abbreviation "RH" was used to describe the factor in humans. About 85 per cent of all people have it and are called RH positive. The remaining 15 per cent do not and are accordingly RH negative. The so-called "RH baby" is generally the child of an RH positive father and an RH negative mother, but fortunately most children of those parents are born without such a condition. Before 1940 the baby born with an RH condition suffered and often died from it without anyone quite knowing why. Doctors Landsteiner and Wiener have made it possible through modern medical technology for such babies to live a more normal life and do all of the things any average person can do. Before their time it is estimated 75 per cent of the RH children died. Today 90 per cent of them can be saved. Blood must be collected to provide a supply for the many medical cases of all types in the county that will critically need it. There is only one way in the world to get that blood--from a "giver." Anyone is welcome to give a pint of blood June 29 at Frecport. The quote for the day's 85 pints.
