2-Algona (lo.) Upper DCS Moines Tuesday, Mey IS, 1956^ Lions' Eye Kit Here, Ready For County Use Kossulh county residents were presented with an eye kit by Lions clubs from Al- goriH, Burt, Swea City, Titonka and Wesley Thursday afternoon. The kit, complete with instruments for handling eyes, was delivered to the sheriff's office in the courthouse by A. J. Hatien, Bancroft. Here's how the kit, which is available for use 24 hours ovary day, may be used in the future. First of all. persons wishing to donate their ryes (after death) should notify the nearest Lions club in their area. Following the donor's death, the mortician should notify the county sheriff, highway patrol or any Lion member at once. The eye, or eyes, depending upon the number donated, is then removed by the mortician or a doctor with the delicate instruments included in the eye kit, placed into a small glass jar containing necessary fluid, and the jar is then placed in a large jug containing dry ice. Transportation across the state to the Lions' state eye bank at Iowa City is the next step, and it is accomplished by the Highway Patrol. The jug is hauled from district to district patrol cars at high speed for the eye must be in Iowa City ready for use about six hours after the death of the donor. The record department at Iowa City has a long list of persons needing an eye transplant, and the list furnishes authorities there with the name of a person who will receive the eye. The eye bank at Iowa City has been in operation several years. Total cost of the eye kit was SI 15 and was shared equally by the five Kossuth county clubs. Presidents and secretaries of the clubs, Harry Greenberg, Algona, deputy district governor, and 1 Mr Hatten, zone chairman and Swea City Lions club president, were instrumental in securing the kit. The kit was ordered by Mr Halten Mar. 24, and will be the only one provided for use in Kossuth county. All Lions clubs in the area are interested in getting names of persons desiring to donate their eyes for future use so someone might see. Ella Sig.-sbeo and Howard at Bint.
