be renamed SS Hope.

ombia, and presently Ceylon, have

method employed by the SS Hope.
Some 126,500 persons have been

treated, over 12,646 major opera-

board the ship, and from the
ship's "iron cow," which pro-
duces whole milk from distilled
sea water, 2,506,000 cartons of
milk have been distributed to the
children of developing nations.

J. Bloom is serving on the national
board of directors and has devoted

the nations prior to a Hope Ship
visit, making the necessary ar-
rangements and contacts with gov-
ernment officials to expedite the
international venture.
