Many Types of Heart Trouble Found No Bar to Child Bearing Women with certain types of heart trouble can bear children even though lata pregnancy and childbirth may increase the load on the circulatory system, Dr. John J. Sampson of the University of Cali fornia Medical School reported today. Dr. Sampson said about 1 per cent of all women delivered In obstretlcal clinics were found to have organic heart disease but that material mortality In those cases had been re duced "almost to the vanishing point." Many women troubled with a nar rowing of the valve in the left side of the heart and defective functioning of the aorta or main artery car rying blood from the heart to the general circulation system have come through childbirth with Com- partively little difficulty, he said. This is a fairly common type of heart disease, often resulting from illness such as rheumatic fever. But there is danger for prospec tive mothers with auricular fibrillation, a condition in which the heart had lost its ability to beat with evenness and rhythm, Dr. Sampson reported. Dr. Sampson addressed the an nual symposium of the San Francisco Heart Committee, an organiza tion of heart specialists. Dr. Eugene S. Kilgore, of San Francisco, told the gathering that medical examinations would weed out of the new draft Army all but a very few men with organic heart disease but still would have to deal with the problem of functionally defective but otherwise healthy hearts. He said the detection of "inconsequential" heart murmurs or pulse irregularities and recognition of their real meaning would prevent "needless neuroses" and would prevent individuals from making future unjustified claims of heart damage due to military service. 9000 Quakes Yearly It has been estimated 9000 earth quakes occur annually. Loan Agencies Lose Appeal on Refunds Efforts of 53 small loan agencies, several of them in the Bay region, to obtain partial refunds of fees paid to the State under the so called "Loan Shark" regulatory law of 1939, were thwarted today by disallowance of the claims by the State Board of Control, according to an Associated Press dispatch from Sacramento.. Edwin M. Daughterly, State Cor poration Commissioner, said the re funds were sought on technical grounds and that Attorney General Earl Warren had ruled that the companies were not entitled to the refund. The fees were paid to cover expenses of the Corporation Department relative to the regulatory work. University Professor Slain by Assassins HAVANA, Nov. 28. (VP) Dr. Paul Fernandez Fiallo, Havana University professor, was assassinated today when 10 shots were fired at point-blank range by three unidentified young assailants, who escaped. Police said Dr. Fiallo had been accused of complicity in a radical group called "The Bunch" but had denied any connection. . 'White Way' Cleric Dies NEW YORK, Nov. 28. (P) Mbn-signor Edward T. Leonard, 70, pastor of St. Malachy's Roman Catholic Church, - in the heart of the theatrical district, died last night. He established an actor's chapel in 1921. to do better, but have been thrown back- by some unexpected blow. "What these people need is a boost. They don't want Christmas baskets. Neither do they want clothing or toys. The thing that they need is permanent. They want the chance to go ahead. They want to be normal persons, like you and I. They want to make the best of their lives. That is the God-given right of every man. And every person on a Bluebird Fellowship has that chance. He can aspire to be President if he chooses. Or he can be a pauper. The only thing the Bluebird asks is that he be worthy. CASE NUMBER 4 Budget . . $64.89 This is the unusual case of a man who, until one year ago held a responsible position with a major en gineering firm, but who today, be cause of an Injury, is not able to work. We shall call him Mark. His immediate need is for braces to strengthen his legs so that he may return to his old employment. The company, in a letter to the Bluebird, has agreed that Mark will be taken back just as soon as he physically is able. His doctor added that that will not be long if the braces are provided. Mark was injured while vacation ing at Yosemite Valley last year. He fell from a rock, and while the injury did not at first seem serious, later it was found that his spine was hurt and four vertebrae fractured. Paralysis of the lower extremities set in and his upper extremities were weakened. Work was impos sible, and Mark was left helpless with a wife and baby to support. His fellow workers, with whom Mark was a favorite, took up a collection and bought him the first equipment he needed after he left the hospital. They, however, cannot supply the rest. Neither can the State Department of Rehabilita- t!AH .. 1 u u : j i , . tiuij. aiuiuuK" u tall ueilHV UttU VI the expense. .since Mark s braces would cost $129.78 In all, the Bluebird's share is $64.89, little enough to put the man back on his feet and able to earn his own living again. This is the truest rehabilitation possible; the need is apparent and the success to be had is obvious. . Icebergs have been sighted so hugh their surface has been estimated at 1000 square miles.
