of Ackley University of Iowa student who was shot down in aerial combat over Germany sacrificed a leg for his country but his misfortune gave him an idea which is a boon to many or thopedic convalescents in army hospitals He developed a new type of crutch which is light and easy to handle carrying the bodys weight on the forearms instead of on the shoulders When shot down over Germany he was taken prisoner and his in juries necessitated the amputation of his left leg When he recuperated enough to move around he and 4 buddies improvised a wooden crutch which was extremely successful The men wanted to make more for other disabled prisoners but a lack of materials prevented them After Z years in a prisoner of war camp Van Eschen was re turned to the United States in a prisoner exchange At Walter Reed General hospital Washing ton D C he met his 4 buddies They talked about designing 3 new light weight crutch similar to the wooden versions they had been using in the prison camp A rough plan was drawn for a manufacturer in Washington After several modifications a sat isfactory model was produced The new cruitch adjustable to any length was cast of light alu minum Each crutch was madejin 3 sections weighed aboutlj pounds and could be dismantled for car rying convenience A3 inch spring band which clamps around the forearm prevents the crutch from falling away and leaves the arms free for opening doors smok ing and working When Van Eschen left the pital last January more than 150 of the crutches were in use by other disabled veterans there anc disabled men in other hospitals were using them also The idea for designing the crutch was entirely humanitarian We wanted something to help the other vets get out of bed up on their feet and out of wheel chairs Van Eschen said It worked too for some vets with body casts were able to use the new crutches when they couldnt use others Van Eschen has an artificial limb now and doesnt need the crutches He was a
