Many Types of Heart Trouble Found No Bar to Child Bearing Women with certain types of heart trouble can bear children even though late pregnancy and childbirth may increase the load on the circulatory, system, University Dr.

of John Cali- J. fornia Medical School reported today. Dr. Sampson said about 1 per cent of all women delivered in obstretical clinics were found to organic heart disease but that material mortality in those cases had been reduced "almost to the vanishing point." Many women troubled with a narrowing of the valve in the left side of the heart and defective functioning of the aorta or main artery carrying blood from the heart to the general circulation system have come through childbirth with compartively 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 prospective 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 annual symposium of the San Francisco Heart Committee, an organization of heart specialists.

And they can't get up because they haven't the strength. They definitely need help, but only enough to pick them off the ground. They aren't crying for assistance. They say, only, that if the chance is laid before them, they will find a way to make good.

They are the most worthy of all unfortunate persons. They are, also, the most unfortunate, because they have the ability 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.

Paralysis of the lower extremities set in and his upper extremities were weakened. Work was impossible, 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 the hospital. however, canequipment he peeded, after he left not supply the rest.

Neither can the State Department of Rehabilitation, although it can defray half of 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.
