They hold reg- ular meetings at St. Bernard's Hospital here and receive advice and guidance from their family physicians and a hospital medical board committee. "The .needs of this group are all out of proportion to their num- ber," Dr. Glen Baker, a board member, explained. He pointed out what procedures must be when bleeding occurs. "The blood of normal people coagulates when it oozes out of a surface wound between eight and 12 minutes. This is nature's way to stop bleeding. "But a hemophiliac must be taken immediately to a physician and administered adequate dosage of cryopercipitate, a substance JONESBORO-PARAGOULD CHURCH And SHOPPER'S GUIDE in the blood which causes it to coagulate. This substance is ob- tained from the blood of a donor. St. Bernard's blood bank serves all 13 when the need arises. "In the past it was common to use fresh, whole blood," Dr. Don Vollman, another medical board member, said "But in re- cent years sophisticated equipment has enabled us to extract this needed substance and return the blood to the donor." One major problem in using fresh blood, he explained, is that the donor must walt three months before returning for another dona- tion. St. Bernard's now has a machine, donated by The Crane Co. of Jones- boro, that enables technicians to extract blood, and by a process called plasmaphoris, separate the plasma from the blood, remove the clotting factor and immediately return the blood to the donor. "By using this new process we can obtain twice the yield and save a tremendous amount of time because the donor need only walt two weeks before returning for another donation," one doctor ex- plained. Another major problem lies in the fact that, the financial burden can prove to be extremely high. "Only last month we used from 120 to 150 units of the clotting factor for these people." More donors are needed to assure that \\; Remarkable Woman Mrs. Joseph P.

"We are not embarking on a fund-raising cam- paign, we need donors. If we can obtain enough donations for the Hemophiliac Foundation it would be possible to furnish this vital clotting factor at no cost to the patient," one hospital official pointed out. Although the disease is still classified as incurable, treatment does allow the individual to con- duct his life in a state of nor- mality. JONESBOR0 Sacrament Church.

DRIVE:IN, WALk uP BANKING'sERVICES JONESBOR0, ARKANSAS Anglicans Reject Merger Proposal London (NC) -- The project for the reunion of the Anglican and Methodist Churches in England has collapsed after 14 years of inten- sive and often controversial ef- fort. Anglican Church leaders in nat- ional session here rejected the plan by a slender majority, al- though it was accepted by Metho- dist leaders in simultaneous ses- sion in Birmingham. The Metho- dist conference voted 77.4 per cent in favor, but the joint Angli- can convocations of Canterbury and York in London voted only 69 per cent in favor which was six per cent below the three-quarter ma- jority required to give the plan the go-ahead and heal the 00- year-old rift between the two churches. The vote of the Anglicanbishops and other chief churchmen after referenda and earlier votes among the laity arid clergy was 863 for and 116 against the plan, while F innish Catholics Pledge Aid Funds Helsinki, Finland (NC) -- Be- ginning this year, the Catholic Church in Finland will contribute one per cent of its gross ex- penditure for overseas develop- ment and aid projects. The aid will be made avail- able through the Finnish branch of Caritas Internationaiis, inter- national Catholic charities organ- ization. The Catholic InformationCenter in Finland (KATT) also reported that during Lent Finnish Catholics gave more than $1,000 to aid the Nigerian secessionist region of Biafra. II Ever Wonder... . .why disobedience has become so fashionable? the Methodists voted 584 for and 153 against. The plan would have involved unity in two stages between the Anglicans (of whom there are about 87.5-million baptized in England and Wales and about two million practicing) and Methodists (who number about 700,000). The pre- sent vote was on the first stage, involving intercommunion and mu- tual recognition of ministriesbas- ed on a Service of Reconciliation. The second stage would have in- volved full organic union. The fiercest controversy was over the Service of Reconcilia- tion, which wouldhave given Angli- can and Methodist clergy identical status in each others' churches and to which many Anglicans ob- jected because they felt that Methodist ministers must be or- dained by bishops. The Methodists, who were foun- ded by an Anglican priest, John Wesley, were, on their side, gen- erally ready to accept the pre- sent Anglican episcopal orders, which at present they reject. After the July 8 vote Archbis- hop Ramsey said the vote was "good enough to look forward to the same proposals being put for- ward again in the not too distant future. If we did not, we would be letting down our Methodist friends." The Methodist conference pres- ident, the Rev. Brinn O'Gorman, was delighted with the clear strong lead of his own church and dis- appointed with the Church of Eng- land vote. He said: .... "I think they will seriously con- sider the position and maybe dur- ing the next few months we shall give them an opportunity for further thought.' ..... Both of the Churches' spokes- men said the decision here would not bind overseas bran- ches of either church but would probably affect their own think- lag on the subject.
