By CHICAGO - A group of researchers from Chapel Hill, N.C., have discovered a treatment that may help tide patients over for surgery to correct a "leaky" heart valve when more traditional treatment fails. THE DOCTORS USED the agent sodium nitroprusside, a powerful blood pressure reducing agent, to maintain adequate heart function in patients with severe mitral regurgitation, a leak in the one-way valve regulating blood flow into the left ventricle, the main pumping chamber of the heart. Dr. William Grossman credits the drug with saving the lives of two patients who were near death at the time the drug was administered. MITRAL REGURGITATION (meaning blood backspill) is probably the most common form of valvular heart disease. What happens is that the blood in the left ventricle isn't pumped into the general circulation but gushes back through the faulty valve, leading to severe congestion and shortness of breath. In addition, the heart must work harder to maintain an adequate blood supply to the body. The valve defect may be caused by rheumatic heart Dow and Jones Reveal Secrets By ARTHUR HOPPE SAN FRANCISCO - One of the nagging questions that worries countless Americans during every "nCJ waking mo- , ment is now j answered in "V jr my new jjft f J to Make a I V Million Dol lars in the ket in Your Hopp Basement During Your Spare Time." The solution is suprisingly simple. To understand it, however, one must first grasp the highly-technical factors that control stock prices. LET US RECALL how the profligate Democrats under Lyndon Johnson gradually spent the nation into a foreboding sea of red ink. Every Wall Street analyst worth his Bentley predicted nothing but gloom and doom. So the Dow-Jones averages responded by soaring to record highs. Just in the nick of time, however, a Republican Administration under Richard Nixon was elected to restore the confidence of the business community. "At last we can have confidence in the future of the economy," said the business community confidently. So the Dow-Jones averages promptly plummeted to record lows. THE HONEST GERALD FORD took over. "Boy, are we in terrible shape," he said honestly. "Many people are going around saying things couldn't be worse. Boy, are they ever wrong!" Confidence was shattered. Gloom and doom everywhere. So, naturally, in recent weeks the Dow-Jones averages have sky-rocketed again. GRIN AND BEAR IT 'Tr ; hour if. f . jr K 1-19 --- If th car you ripped off hadn't had a full tank of gas, I could'vo gotten you off with petty larceny." Medical Talk Heart Valve Dr. S. 4- Andelman disease, heart attack or bacterial infection. TREATMENT DEPENDS on severity. Many patients can go for quite a while with proper medical treatment. But as the valve leak worsens, about half of the patients will become candidates for surgery to implant an artificial valve. Doctors have commonly prescribed digitalis to improve the heart's strength enough to get the patient through surgery. However, the Chapel Hill doctors have found that sodium nitroprusside can produce dramatic improvement in patients who don't respond to the digitalis. THE DOCTORS OBSERVED a 41 per cent improvement in the amount of blood pumped into the general circulation, a 25 per cent decrease in the amount of blood spilling back through the diseased valve and a 55 per cent reduction in the abnormally high pressure found in the pulmonary veins which drain blood from the lungs. Further studies are necessary to determine if the drug has side effects which are dangerous, but for now this research will be good news for many patients suffering from mitral regurgitation. (C) Los Angeles Timet From this, we see there are two major factors controlling stock prices. Their names are Ebenezer Dow and Jeremiah Jones. Dow and Jones have been controlling the market for more than half a century. They meet each morning on a bench in Central Park to establish their averages and determine the daily trading volume. IN THEIR YOUTH, they studied carloadings, sorghum futures and other economic indicators with some measure of responsibility. But, now in their late eighties, they have grown, if now senile, at the very least eccentric. "See where unemployment's hit seven per cent," Dow will say, taking a slug of elderberry wine. "I'll raise you our 30 industrials 16 points and toss in a couple of blue chips." "Heh, heh, heh, that'll fix 'em," says Jones. "And I'll trade you a record 35 million share for Atlantic avenue and a Get Out of Jail Free card." THERE IS, HOWEVER, a certain method in the Dow-Jones madness. Their lifelong goal, to which they have remained steadfast, has been to "attract small investors into the market." The recent upsurge in prices is part of the plan. The reason? "Same as always," cackled Dow while Jones gleefully rubbed his hands. "So's we can shaft 'em again!" The secret to sudden wealth, then, would seem to lie in the formula: When the economy looks rosy, sell; when it's going to hell in handbasket, buy. But that would be placing too much faith in the realiability of Dow and Jones.
