WythwBIt (Ark.) Courier Newi - Monday, May f, 19* - Loses Battle •TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - "Up :b tlic eml he had a hopeful, op- jmislic iiUllude." ; This was liow Dr. T.E.A. von jcdcni'oth recalled the opti- nism of Robert Allen, who died Sunday, ending his fight against j rare form of hone cancer. ' Allen, suffering from ostco- jcnic sarcoma, underwent a •ransfcr of • cancerous tissue ,yiKi Harry T. Griffith, 63, of ?lourtown, Pa., about eight A'ceks ago at Roswell Park Vlemorial Institute, Buffalo, N.Y. 1 Allen never knew that Griffith, a former minor league baseball player, died April 25. ' Allen was admitted to a Tucson hospital Friday. Dr. von Dedenrolh said the cancer had spread loo far through Allen's pelvic area. "He had been under hypnotherapy treatment," Von Deden- roth said, "and thought that he had this thing licked." • The doctor said that Allen, K»ho returned from Buffalo 12 days ago, had been under a hypnosis treatment which enabled him to develop a positive outlook toward his disease. " Even when Allen's condition worsened last week, requiring his hospitalization, he "felt he was merely recuperating from the operation," Von Dedenroth said. Thursday, when Von Deden- loth realized "only a miracle" yould save Allen's life, the doctor broke the news to the Stricken man's wife, Anita. She has been in seclusion and under a doctor's care since. • Doctors at the Roswell Park institute said they did not think the two men had died in vain. "The deaths of Mr. Allen and Mr. Griffith are regretted here," a spokesman at the insti- tute said. "Both men knew that the method, at best, was highly experimental . and improyen. Apparently, jn these two cases, the procedure was of little .value." . . The spokesman said , the knowledge gained from the experiments "ttas been beneficial" to cancer research. Specialists hoped'the transfer of cancer tissue would -produce antibodies in the blood of both men and help stop tbe spread of cancer. "Apparently the surgery was performed too late. There is a possibility that if they had gotten to . him sooner, something j might have been worked but," • Von Dedenroth said. ( Allen, who lost a leg last fall because of cancer, was a former football player for 'the University of Illinois and an award- winning insurance man. Besides his 'widow, he is survived by-two sons and a daughter.

KY REGIME FACES TURBULENCE By ANDREW BOROWEC SAIGON, South Viet Nam V AP) - Premier Nguyen Cao <y came under attack. from within and outside the ruling junta today following his declaration that he expects to hang onto power at least another year. • • • Informants : said some of Ky's fellow .generals considered' the statement likely to endanger the delicate political balance that has kept : them in power despite Buddhist agitation. Ky was reported to have made the declaration without consulting them. Government censors cut the statement from the Vietnamese language .press in an effort to rriinifni'ze' the" political repercussions. Nevertheless, it spread by word'of mouth through Saigon.

(AP) President Jolm.son entertains Mexico's foreign minister.; ;Antq- nio Carrillo 'lfl.qr.es, at his LBJ Ranch today as. he- nears .the end of a long weekend in Texas. Carrillo. flew to Texas from Washington Sunday night with his wife and daughter, Larges. They were to leave later today. The visit was not announced by the Texas White House-until after the Mexica official and lis family, had arrived at the 'resident's home near Johnson City, some 60 miles north of here. This was one of several indications the informal affair lad been arranged somewhat lastily. Flying to the ranch with Carrillo was Johnson's press secretary, Bill V. Moyers, who had not been expected either. The Mexican diplomat helped entertain the President and Mrs. Johnson in Mexico City last month. While there has been no firm word when the Johnsons will return to Washington, the President said last Wednesday he planned to stay until tonight or Tuesday morning. The Johnsons had other an- ounced guests at the ranch Sunday —Texas Gov.' and Mrs. John B. Gonnally. The four of them, it was said, took a long ride around the ranch area. Connally, a conservative Democrat, won a big victory in Saturday's statewide Democratic primary election, as com- servative forces within the par- ty crushed representatives • of the liberal, faction. . There had been pre^eldcUin reports -i of a Johnson-Conally rift, leading many texahs to assume'the-President was'back- ing the liberals whose principal spokesman is Sen. Ralph W. Yarborough. Also at .the ranch for Mother's Day was the Johnson's older daughter, Lynda Bird, 22. Her steady .escort of recent months, Hollywood actor George- Hamilton, also was reported on hand. The President ana ms wife went alone to Sunday services at Johnson City's 'First Christian church, then dropped in among tourists' flocking through his nearby boyhood home, now a museum. Later Johnson announced a series of appointments and job shifts: . ' —Donald Opie McBride, 63, a special assistant to Sen. A. S. Mike Monroney, D-Okla., will be nominated as $27,000-a-year director of the Tennessee Valley Authority, succeeding Arnold Jones whose term expires May 18. mer II recently named assist-,da, succeeding Olcott H.

As the 'new storm erupted around him, Ky'lapsed into silence. He ordered his chauffeur to drive on when.newsmen converged on his car for an explanation of his intentions. One Buddhist leader, Thich Thien Minh, told.a crowd of 5;000 persons,in Da Nag that the Buddhists, would orgaize another wave of protests if the government backed down on its pledge to hold elections for a national assembly next fall. •Mhilv leader -of the -youth movement of Saigon's Buddhist Institute,.'is a protege of the politically, powerful, monk Thich Tri Quang,: principal figure behind the recent .unrest .that forced, the junta to pledge elections at the end of the sumer. The Buddhist" leader in Da Nahg, Thich Minh .Chieu, told a newsman, that, the 35-year-old premier and air ' force commander bad made many declarations in the past and later withdrawn thern. , . "I expect he will" reverse' ttiis declaration also," the monk said. But he warned: "The goy erhmeht has. 'sa'id there will be elections in three to four months. If the elections are no leld, there may be a reaction.' Chieu appeared to be alluding i> Ky's threat to seize Da Nang | and other northern Buddhist , hotbeds last March and execute Da Nang's mayor as a Comii- nist tool. 'The premier later said he was misunderstood, Ky told a news conference Saturday. "I expect 'to stay in power for at least another year — perhaps until the middle of next year. There, is no doubt about that." He said the promised election this fall will only choose an as- embly to draft a constitution. It will take at least a year before he assembly finishes ' the job and can appoint a civilian government, lie said. ' complete its work before the.; end ot the month, and the junta will be called on to ratify iU-; recommendations. ; ; Some Western diplomats in Saigon believed Ky's statement ook the other generals in -the ID-man directory by surprise.
