Increase in Donations of Bodies to Iowa Medical, Osteopathic Schools By Maria C.Misol (Drake University Journalism Student) DES MOINES - Body donations to Iowa medical and psteopathic schools have increased in recent months. Ten requests for body-donation forms were received in March at the College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgerv (COMS) here, said Mrs. Linda Duncan, medical executive secretary to the Anatomy Department. That figure follows a high of nine or 10 a week in the last three months, compared to one a s week before that, Change of Venue Asked by Meggison A ruling is expected within the next several days from District Court Judge James C. Smith, Carroll, on a motion by .attorneys for Loren E. Meggison, 34, Urbandale. who is charged with assault with intent to commit murder, to move the site of the trial from Carroll. Attorneys Russell S. Wunschel. Carroll, and Lawrence Scalise, Des Moines, Monday renewed their claim that prejudicial pretrial publicity in the case prevents Meggison from receiving a fair trial in Carroll County. Wunschel and Scalise argued for the change of venue Monday in District Court here before Judge Smith. Meggison. president of Meggison Ral Estate. Inc., of Des Moines. is charged in connection with a shooting incident Nov. 10 outside the Red Carpet Lounge here. In that incident. James R. Coppock. 32. Council Bluffs was wounded. Meggison pleaded innocent to the charges in arraignment proceedings here Jan. 29. Attorneys for Meggison have filed affidavits from residents in Carroll. Calhoun. Greene and Sac Counties stating that Meggison could not receive a fair and impartial trial in those counties. Wunschel told the court that a "thorough examination" was conducted after Meggison was charged and said "it looks like there is local animosity" and animosity in some other counties. He claimed this was either due to publicity or byword of mouth. He concluded that Meggison could not receive a fair trial in Carroll County or surrounding counties. according to Mrs. Duncan. Clarence G. Strub, coordinator for the Deeded Body Program at the University of Iowa College of Medicine (SU1) in Iowa City, reported that they have already fulfilled their body needs for the academic year 1974-75. However, Strub said he doesn't want to discourage body donations. He said that continuous demand from the public and legislators for more health practitioners will increase the need for anatomical subjects. Bodies can be donated by filling out the legal forms (deeds) provided by the anatomy departments at COMS and SUI. The donor's FUNNY BUSINESS Joe Beck, an area prosecutor with the Attorney General's office, claimed there is no proof Meggison could not receive a fair trial here. He also pointed out that neither Meggison nor Coppock are residents of Carroll County. However. Scalise pointed out to the court that in January Beck said if the defense thought it could not get a fair trial here because of publicity it could ask for a change of venue. Beck urged the court to set a trial date for the matter in the near future "so we can get this thing out of the Way/' But Judge Smith said after the hearing that a trial date will depend on how he rules on the motion for the change of venue. Critical of Bond Issue Law CEDAR RAPIDS. Iowa (AP)—Cedar Rapids school officials were critical of Iowa's law requiring 60 per cent approval in bond issues after a $7.8 million school bond issue was narrowly defeated. signature and that of two witnesses are required. Also, the donor must be 18 years old. A copy of the deed should be sent to the school which is to receive the body and one should be kept with one's identification at all times. It is not recommended that a copy be kept with the will since wills are probated some time after death, usually a few days afterwards. SUI needs at least 150 bodies annually to maintain its present ratio of one body for every four students. Mrs. Duncan said that COMS needs about 15 or 20 bodies a year. Both COMS and SUI have facilities to store the bodies Winners Named in Speech Event The Kuemper intramural speech contest finals were held Monday night, with three places being awarded in each class. Winners in the freshman class were Jean Gronstal, first, Julie Riesberg. second, and Tammy Sapp, third. Their topic was on a memorable fictional character. Sophomores gave biographies for their speeches. Winners were Maureen Nurse, first. Joyce Harman. second, and Diane Casey, third. J uniors discussed current events, and Ca'thy Ludwig placed first, Patti Riesenberg. second, and John Schreck. third. In the open category for seniors Roxanne Green won first. Nora O'Leary. second, and Kim Heithoff. third. Terrance Sexton, English teacher at Kuemper High School, was in charge of the 13th annual speech contest. The contest began in English classes and was open to all students. After narrowing contestants down to 10 semi-finalists. 12 persons from around the community did the final judging. The judges were Mary Jo 'Vonnahme, Mrs. David Collison. Myron Johnson. Mrs. Robert Blincow. Robert Mosher. Mrs. George Wieland. Cecil Siemann. Mrs. Fred Dolezal. Pat Deacon. Mrs. Darrell Weems. Darwin Bunger and Bob Langenfeld. until needed. The bodies arc embalmed and may be used anytime in a year's period. SUI has its own embalming facilities. Therefore, bodies donated do not require any preparation before being sent there. Autopsied bodies are still usuable at SUI, said Strub, as are those of accident victims. SUI will not pay for transportation charges for the body. COMS will pay transportation and the expense incurred in the first stage of embalming, for which they lack facilities. For this reason, Mrs. Duncan advises donors to send a copy of the deed to their funeral directors with BRENNY S MARKET WEST 3rd STREET - PRICES GOOD THRU TUESDAY, MAY 7 GRADE 'A' WHOLE Fryers Wilson Smoked Polish Sausage lean Meaty Pork Steak Wilson Smoked Picnics Homemade C.S.
