THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland t, ifTt C I" r r, t i: SAYING GOODBYE AFTER TRANSPLANT-Gloria Leatherbury, left, 16, Salisbury, Md., who only 21 days ago received a kidney in a transplant operation at Ohio State University Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, gives a big hug to her mother, who donated the organ. Mrs. Kathleen Leatherbury said goodbye to her daughter Wednesday and returned to her Maryland home. Gloria will have to remain in the area for further medical treatment and plans to live for a while with her grandmother. (AP Wirephoto) Salisbury Girl Gets New Kidney . COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)- A nightmare that started with a 'bee sting three years ago is over f o r 16-year-old Gloria Leatherbury of Salisbury, :AJ. "I feel better than I ever felt in my life," said Gloria, who leaves Ohio State University Hospital Monday with a new ' kidney and gift of life from her mother. She also leaves with the prayers and warm wishes of hundreds of people in her home town. People whom she never met wrote while she was in the hospital and raised money that helped her father's insurance pay her expenses. Gloria keeps four scrapbooks of "lots and lots of nice cards*' from people back home. Beside her bed is a drawer full of more cards and letters. Gloria's mother described her as "a normal, active girl" until three years ago. "It all started when she was stung by a bee," said her mother, Mrs. Kathleen Leather, bury, a nurse's aide. Gloria got sick. She lost weight. Her legs swelled. She found it hard to carry her schoolbooks -- "they were too heavy.*' At first doctors thought she was anemic, her mother said. Then they discovered her kidneys were diseased. The disease had apparently been there before the bee sting, but Gloria never knew it. Her parents, who lived in Newark, Ohio, when Gloria was born, were referred to Children's Hospital in Columbus by a friend. Gloria came to Ohio in March. Mental Health Clinic Moves The Comprehensive Community Mental Health Program, which includes the Frederick County Menial Health Clinic, formerly located in the basement of Winchester Hall, has moved to new quarters at 500 W. Patrick St, Due to the recent, rapid growth John Gets Hooked -- Sorry, Girls! FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) Women of Fort Pierce got the word Friday. An ad appearing in the personal section of the "Shopper" newspaper read like this: "Widows, young spinsters and ; other ladies. This is to let you know that John is out of circulation: He has been hooked. Sorry about that" of the demand for the services rendered through the program, which involves community consultation, alcoholism control, pre-admission program, out-patient clinic, and children's services, the clinic found it necessary to move to more spacious quarters. The program opens at 8:30 in the morning and continues until 4:30 each evening with the exception of Wednesday, during which time they remain open until 10 p.m. The staff has expanded to include 17 members of various professions as psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, coordinators and numerous consultants. The phone number remains unchanged. Calls are received through the switchboard at the Department of Health, 662-1101. After a battle with pneumonia she was transferred to University Hospital where the kidney transplant took place. Doctors checked with both parents, then decided Mrs. Leatherbury was best able to donate a kidney. "I was really happy to be able to do it," said Mrs. Leatherbury. Gloria's doctor, Dr. James Cerelli, is impressed with her progress. "She's done very well," he said. "She has a wonderful attitude and a good sense of humor." When she leaves the hospital, Gloria will stay with her grandmother, Mrs. Lucille Hamilton in Coshocton, 60 miles east of Columbus. During the first month Gloria must return to the hospital three times a week for testing. Gloria, herself, is anxious to return to Maryland where her older sister, Bathsheba, graduates from high school Friday. "I wish I could be there,'" Gloria said. Cerelli expects Gloria to be able to return to Maryland, at least for a visit, in a couple of months. By that time she should also be able to eat two of her favorite foods-hamburgers and french fries. Gloria's older sister will enter college this fall to study to be a teacher. That was Gloria's hope too, but her experience in hospitals has changed her mind. "I thought I'd like to be a history teacher," she said. "Now I think I'd like to be a nurse. I like to help people."

Salsbury Handed 15-Year Sentence BALTIMORE (AP) - Federal Judge Frank A, Kaufman said Friday it was clear that Julius Salsbury, 54, had a leadership role in the Baltimore underworld. He sentenced him to 15 years in prison for interstate gambling violations. Salsbury was convicted by a jury in September. Paul R. Kramer, deputy United States attorney, petitioned the court to revoke Salsbury's bail. Kramer said he fears the convicted gambler will try to flee the country. He added he was informed that Salsbury has a Swiss bank account. Judge Kaufman refused to revoke the bail. The prosecution was built on over 100 checks identified as having been used by Salsbury to pay gambling debts.
