Stevens, manager with her parents and Donors Supplied After the incident, the hospital told the Findlay Red Cross that it would supply blood donors in ithe lakefront city for the vital operation to correct the little youngster's tell-tale heart. The machine, built and perfect- ed over the last five years, needs fresh blood taken on the spot to keep its life-saving apparatus run- ning. It was pioneered by several eminent surgeons and perfected by two Clcvelandcrs, Dr. Earl B. I Kay of St. Vincent Hospital staff and Dr. Bernard Cross of St. Luke, two of the city's four big heart hospitals. With 20 pints of blood funneled into the heart machine, it stood silently by watching some of med- icine's most expert hands seek out and arrest the defect that threat- ened to Snuff out Penny's life with- in the next five years.

Group May Censure Court Schools May Give Licenses By WILLIAM E. TANGNEY United Press International COLUMBUS compro- mise bill in a hot dispute over 14 and 15 year old motor scooter drivers was ready for introduc- tion in the Legislature today. Rep. Richard B. Metcalf (R- Franklin) was to propose that the state get out of the controversy altogether, by allowing local boards of education to issue scoot- er licenses to selected children. Meanwhile, the House got its first look at the long-awaited util- ity rate law revision bill, and the Senate considered a stiff point system to be used against taverns for liquor law violations. Hearings also were scheduled for tonight on Supplemental Un- employment Benefits, movie cen- sorship, pre-school polio shots, quail hunting arid minimum beer prices. Scooter Control Localized Metcalfs idea is to let each school board license young scooter drivers much as it now gives out work permits. "A local board would make its decision on the basis of the ap- plicant's scholarship, cooperation with school officials, mental atti- tude, responsibility, and attend- ance he said. Some police officials and the PTA have demanded repeal of the 1 year-old Junior Licensing Law, which lowered the minimum age for driving under-five-brake-horse- power cycles from 16 to 14. Scoot- er who now get most of their trade from the youngsters and many parents and insurance spokesmen are hotly contesting the demand. Metcalf said his bill recognizes that scooters are often "essential transportation for many boys and girls in small towns and in subur- iban and rural areas. 'However, if the traffic condi- tions are especially hazardous, as for instances they may be in Cuy- ahoga County, the board could ex- ercise Control by refusing to grant certificates." Utility Change Asked The utility rate bill would elim- inate the "reproduction cost new. less depreciation" (RCN) formula for determining a utility com- pany's rate base. The Public Utilities Commission must use the RCN formula, which calculates how much it would cost to replace a company's facilities at present prices, less depreci- On Johnson when hej 1 rtllllUdl 111 I I -1 I IV.V. 1 I j J J 1 J I V.I......
