Journal-Standard, Saturday, July 12, 1975 Vac/if Race Survivors Heading Toward Honolulu LOS ANGELES (UPI) - The six survivors of the 46-foot sloop Attorante which sank Tuesday night after a collision with an unknown object still are aboard the racing yacht Swiftsure and probably will remain there until the craft reaches Honolulu. Dic.k Steele, a Transpacific official aboard the escort vessel Pakeha, said Friday that Swiftsure was logging about 9 knots this morning and that Pa- keha would not be able to rendezvous with her short of about 40 hours. Steele said he talked to Nick Frazee, skipper of the Swiftsure, and was told' that everyone was perfectly willing to take the survivors to Honolulu. In a conversation Friday between Steele and Transpacific Yacht Club Commodore Hays McLellan it was agreed that the race committee is considering giving Swiftsure an extra time allowance for the time lost in the rescue and for the additional weight of the survivors she will carry for the remainder of the race. A decision on the allowance will be made after the race. Mr. And Mrs. Ed Herbert Of Lena Lena, Area Respond To Needs Of Longtime Polio Victims By NORMAN TEMPLIN Journal-Standard Reporter LENA-Mr. and Mrs. Ed Herbert of Lena, longtime polio victims suddenly burdened with nearly $20,000 in hospital bills, display a boundless joy for living that's rubbed off on this community and the area. Donations ranging from cars to dinners started to flow in Thursday afternoon immediately after the announcement of a benefit radio auction scheduled for next Friday. More than 500 tickets have already been sold for a pig roast also planned for Friday evening. Serving will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Lena Community Park, and tickets can be obtained from Citizens State Bank, Lena State Bank and Kayser's Butchering, all of Lena. The auction by WFRL radio of the many donated items will start at 7 p.m. Friday. Cash donations for the Lena couple are also being accepted by the Citizens State Bank or can be mailed to box 1975 at Lena. The goal is to raise at least $10,000. Mrs. Herbert, the former Evelyn Holmes, underwent three major operations, including one for cancer of the colon, in Freeport Memorial Hospital. She entered the hospital March 18 and returned home on June 8, a day after her husband's 65th birthday. The Herberts marked their 15th wedding anniversary on June 5 with the hospital staff joining in the celebration. Mrs. "Herbert, although bedridden, is recovering rapidly and will return for another operation this fall. Doctors indicated all of the cancerous THE WINNERS in the 4-H Flower Arranging Contest for Stephenson County were (left to right): Pam Kaney, Baileyville, first place in the junior division; Tammy Martin, Lena, State Fair representative; and Luanne Burma, Baileyville, first place in the senior division.

When she heard about the benefit events, Mrs. Herbert, who suffered a polio attack when she was 13, said, "This calls for getting up; help me get my braces." Because of a hip fusion, she was able to move only to a nearby doorway. "I've got it in my mind but not in my feet to get up and around," she added cheerfully. What she hopes to do. just as soon as possible, in spite of mild admonishments by her husband, is to be back on her feet helping run the Western Auto Store the couple has had here for 15 years. A comfortable standing area-it's difficult for her to work sitting down- has been established for her so she can clerk and answer the telephone. Mr. ^erbert, a polio victim since he was 17, gets about the store in a motorized wheel chair. The Herberts, who have living quarters in the rear of the store, have run their business through the years with only limited outside help. "At times, it has taken plenty of that thing called guts," said Mr. Herbert, "but it's been worth it." And the community obviously agrees, judging by the response to the fund-raising events. Extension Units Pearl City Day Unit Members of the Pearl City Day Unit will meet at 12:30 p.m. Monday for a picnic lunch at the home of Mrs. Audrey Musser. Meat and drink will be furnished. Members should bring table service. //A Aw 'Officers LOUIS FAUSER Chairman of the Board JOHN BUFORD President D. R. MATTHEWS Vice President H. T. GUFFEY Cashier F.W.GORHAM Assr.
