Honor Student Dies Following Test of Blood SEATTLE, March 24. /P-An 18- year-old college honor student died yesterday of an injection of bacterially-contaminated blood, given during an experiment connected with \viii' research by the University of Washington. The young victim, James Stanley Lecdom, a freshman at Sea Hue University, was one of 40 volunteers participating in the project seeking better svays to preserve whole blood. He died three days after the Injection, despite every effort to savo his life. Dr. Robert IT. Williams, head of the University of Washington department of medicine, said blood became contaminated some phenomenon" after it been refrigerated. "The only way we can explain it," said Dr. Williams, "is that, the bacteria, was able to grow in some manner while the blood was a) ' free/ing temperature and 'not ai body temperature. 1 ' ISotii I.>r. Williams and Dr. Clement A. Kind], associate professor the "by had of medincine in charge of hematology at the university, said they would "gladly pa-ticipate in the same experiment tomorrow." They said the bacteria had not yet been identified, but they believed it to be a saprophyte (any organism living on dead or decaying organic matter), which does not grow at body temperature but thrives when chilled. It produces shock and highffevcr. The project in which Leedom took part was started by the university nine months ago as part of a nation-wide effort to find preservatives which would keep whole blood longer than the 21 days considered safe with the present use of acid citrate glucose. Several other laboratories jn the country arc conducting research along the same line. Both university doctors said bacteria has been found on very rare occasions in refrigerated blood, but was so uncommon the risk was almost negligible. Some 700.000 foreign visitors to Britain in I'm (compared wiih 60:i,(JUO in .19SOJ spent an estimated $280,000,000.
