Palm Beach Post, Thursday, Nov. 21, 1968 27 Cardiac Status Race Exists Malaysia Still Troubled By Philippines'1 Argument But Shumway is very dissatisfied with the progress to date in coping with the rejection phenomenon that is the major cause of transplant failure and that poses a ceaseless threat to the surviving in the last 12 months still survive. These include a number of recipients who have been able to leave their hospitals and resume a nearly normal existence, combining some work with periodic medical checkups. (ONewYert Times News Samlet STANFORD, Calif - The last year's experience with heart transplant operations has shown that politics and medicine can be as closely intertwined as politics and science, particularly space science. The race for national prestige through successful heart transplants, some observers at the Stanford medical school here suggest, has been as keen in its way as the international prestige competition to send the first men on a round trip to the moon. In the heart transplant race, South Africa was the pioneer. That country still holds the record in the person of Dr. Philip Blaiberg for the longest survival of a patient with another persons's heart beating in his chest. American surgeons, however, are now among the leading experimenters applying this radical approach to cardiac therapy. The Soviet Union's surgeons reversing Moscow's initial skepticism and hostility have recently begun performing the same operation. There could yet be a Soviet-American race in the transplantation of hearts and other organs to parallel the lunar competition. But Stanford's Dr. Norman Shumway, a pioneer experimenter in this field, makes plain his impatience with doctors who seem to put national glory ahead of the hard and persistent work still needed before heart transplants can be considergd a standard therapeutic procedure on a par. say, with cardiac valve replacement. As an example he cites a European medical team that performed one successful heart transplant, and has rested on its laurels since. Shumway's impatience is based on his conviction that a year's experience with heart transplants has shown that much more work is required in this field. Far more could have been learned from the last 12 months experience, he believes, if medical and scientific considerations had always been put ahead of nationalistic or individual goals. The Stanford surgeon, whose team has performed seven heart transplants, is still optimistic about this field's future. He estimates that about half of the approximately 80 patients who have received other persons' hearts for reconciliation should the Philippines desire it. There is little hope in the Malaysian capital among politicians or foreign ministry officials that any such desire will become manifest before, or even after, the presidential election in the Philippines next year. "Now we know," says Tan Sri Ghazali Shafir, permanent head of the foreign ministry, "What Philippine policy is, that is, that they must have Sabah. Until they succeed in their acquisition of Sabah, sooner or later, by fair means or foul, they must of necessity keep their' claim hanging in the world court or somewhere."

Tlma Newt Servke KUALA LUMPUR, Malay-sia The dispute over the Philippines claim to the Malaysian state of Sabah in northeast Borneo continues to dimmer. It has completely dominated the headlines in Malaysia (or the last six months. The two countries are continuing their verbal war over A-hether relations are suspended or about to be broken. The last Malaysian diplomat in the Philippine capital returned to Kuala Lumpur recently, completing a process begun when the Philippines served notice in July that it would be withdrawing its diplomats from Kuala Lumpur. The Philippines acted after talks in Bangkok failed to settle the dispute. After the Philippines Congress passed a bill declaring that the Philippines had acquired "sovereignty and dominion" over Sabah, Malaysia announced that its diplomats would be withdrawn fromManila. The dispute over Sabah dates from 1962, when the Philippines presented a claim to the British. The Philippines contended that in 1878 when the sultan of Sulu, in the southwest Philippines ceded Sabah to the British, the agreement he signed was a contract or lease and not a deed of cession. Manila argued that Sabah belongs to the heirs of the sultan and that Britain had no right to transfer the territory. Britain rejected the claim and, in 1963, transferred sovereignty over the area to the new Malaysian federation after a United Nations supervised survey determined that the people of Sabah favored union with Malaysia. The Philippines has since pressed its claim to Sabah with Malaysia, but it has been rejected. Although Malaysia completed the withdrawal of its diplomats from the Philippines recently, Filipino diplomats remain in Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia insists that their diplomatic status has been ended and that future communications will be through embassies of the two countries in Bangkok or elsewhere. But officials here are careful to point out that all this does not constitute a break in relations in the formal sense.
