For the simple reason that doctors, confronted by a patient of presidential status, want to do everything possible to save his life, the medicine men of Parkland Hospital in Dallas tried just about every known medical technique to hold him in a condition that might be called living. These physicians would have done as much for any emergency patient, but the split-second admission of a president as a bullet wound victim keyed up the entire staff of the so- called trauma section of the huge Dallas hospital. When it was over and the emotionally-drained staff tore off their operating room masks and began the dull business of filling out myriad forms which must accompany the death of any citizen, the emergency room . doctors and their . aides blew on filter cigarets and argued a. point: Could they : have saved Kennedy? Knew The Answer • Truthfully, they knew then what the Warren Commission brought out publicly 10 months later. The answer: No. After being hit by the first bullet in the back — with the slug emerging through the front of his throat and into' the body of Gov. John Connally of Texas — the President, then took a second siug. It tore away right posterior brain and bone tissue in the head. By ^any medical standards, this is a massive wound. Patients so damaged simply do not' recover. This language did not occur in the Warren report, but a member of the Parkland Hospital staff said at the time, "any other patient, would have been booked as 'dead on arri- ival.*" • The commission in its meticulous drafting of the report acknowledged . many rumors surrounding the medical treatment of the fallen Chief Executive'. But under the leadership of Chief Justice Earl Warren, there could be only one conclusion: The President received tlie best medical care possible and the doctors, for practical purposes, were defeated the moment Kennedy's inert body was brought into- the hospital. Emotionally Exhausted * The physiciaps — ranging from brain surgeons to studious residents — were exhausted emotionally when their chief, Dr. Kemp Clark,'chief of neurological services at the hospital, . decided that further efforts, to spark life into ' the •bullet - ridden Chief Executive were useless. Long after Lyndon B. Johnson acceeded to the presidency, rumors persisted to the fuzzy effect that Kennedy's life might have been saved with more prompt, more effective medical procedures. The report- does not bear out such speculation. The finest practioners of medical science could not have restored life to Kennedy. The brain damage was too much. There was a minor variance down wearily to write their reports. Had the victim been some slum-bum, the reports might have been in less detail. But the end results were the same. The' best medical team that could be put together in Dallas could not save Kennedy's life. Nor could this victory been won by any combination of doctors, anywhere. President Kennedy received the best possible medical care. But his assassin, with a 6.5 rifle, made the most expert medical treatment rather academic. Crop Report LAFAYETTE, Ind. (UPI)— Crop reporters indicated today that subsoil moisture remains mostly short all around Indiana, but subsoil moisture .is adequate in some areas. "Recent shower activity has heightened hopes for fall pastures and small grains,", said the weekly report of Robert E. Straszheim, agricultural statistician at Purdue. • Some topsoil moisture is short, particularly in the central portion of the state which has fared poorly in the distribution of rainfall since early July. For the past 10 weeks, dating back to mid-July, northwest and north central portions of the state are only 1 to 1.6 inches .short of moisture. But in areas among attending doctors about'like west central, east central ' and centra], the shortage ranges from 4.7 to 5.5 inches with east central in the worst shape. "Pastures have. responded very well to the increases in soil moisture," Straszheim reported. "Pastures are rated mostly poor to fair compared with a rating of poor in the previous week." The report said the corn harvest was off to a slightly earlier ^than average start with about 5 per cent harvested, more than! last year. "About 75 per cent of the corn is rated as mature, which is about average and compares with 70 per cent mature this time last year. "Soybeans harvest continues to be rapid. About 35 per cent of the soybeans have been combined compared to 25 per cent for average and 20 per cent last year. "•Fall plowing and land preparation activities continue slowly. Only 65 per cent of the land intended for winter wheat has been-plowed,-compared with. 75 per cent average.' '- '}' "The seeding of winter wheat is about average at 25 per cent complete. The.seeding of barley is 40 per cent, done,: compared to .a. usual 55. per: cent. The seeding - of-rye- is-45- per cent complete, also.behind usual.' the actual time of death. The official death certificate placed the moment of expiration at 1 p.m. CST, Nov'. 22, 1D63. But this was more or less an arbitrary time. The report said: Time Was Approximate "The time was fixed at 1 p.m. as an approximation since it was impossible to determine the precise moment when life left the Prsident. President Kennedy could have survived the neck injury, but the head wound was fatal. ">From a' medical viewpoint. President Kennedy was alive when he arrived at Parkland Hospital; the doctors observed that he had a heart beat and was making some (agonal) respiratory efforts. But his condition was hopeless and the extraordinary efforts of the doctors to save him could not help but to have been unavailing." The commission coped with rumors and "speculation about why the doctors in Dallas did not discover the throat entry wound in the President's back. This \va"s not found until an autopsy was performed at the Bethesda Naval Hospital outside Washington. The answer was simple: Kennedy was rolled into the Dallas emergency room face up. .The skilled physicians knew 'that even a remote chance of saving him, two things had to be done first — pump his lungs to restore breathing and introduction of fluid blood and plasma. Patient Was Dead With these and other techniques in operation, the doctors saw irrefutable evidence that their patient was dead. Extraneous wounds then became the concern of the autopsy men. A sheet was pulled over the President's face. Not long after, his body was switched to a casket for the flight back to Washington and the doctors sat Likable, beautiful Buick^S.

Without this skill, a student could not possibly do well in his school work. Jft . is for this reason that educators are constantly searching to improve the instruction pt reading. Learning to read is a complex process. It involves all of a childs experience,!.. It. is much more than instruction in a classroom. Once a child enters - school; a teacher provides experiences and activities as background' for the teaching of reading. The actual mechanics of reading are- taught in the "classroom. These skills include recognizing words, understanding meanings, phonics, and a variety of other techniques. The teacher encourages each student to participate in . these activities- which will actually make him a reader. 1 What is a reader? it ; is an individual who enjoys books. He doesn't consider reading as a chore but rather a form of entertainment. A reader' recognizes the. value and knowledge obtained from books; Even more than that, he gains understanding, experiences emotions, and becomes a part of the story. •< The school cannot accomplish the entire job alone. A classroom with 25 or more students has many distractions. A teacher attempts to work with each individual but certainly can't provide the same warmth and understanding which parents are in a position to supply. A student often has difficulty finding privacy in the normal classroom. The home and parents have an important role to play. Parents' attitudes have a substantial influence on those of their children. Parents who enjoy reading and show respect for books tend to give these same qualities to their children. Children learn from their surroundings. Up until the age when a child attends school, parents usually have the entire responsibility for learning. This is the period when a.child should have many experiences. The usual trips to '.he *oo, park, farm, and city are valuable.-There are many possible experiences which depend upon location, occupation, income, • and. interest of the family. The main, idea is to give a child as broad a background as possible. In this way when he starts to read he will have had experiences to which he can refer. Consider how difficult it would be to learn to read the word cow if the student kas never seen one. ' Once a child is in school a parent should see that he has a quiet, well lighted place whece he can read. It is. good for a child to actually own some books. He should also be familiar with the local library. Parents should share in a child's reading. Try to create • enthusiasm. Show the child that you are interested in his reading. . ,A parent .should not be. afraid • to help a child who wants to learn how to read. On the other hand, a parent should not force the child to learn before a gen-- uine desire arises. Buick Wouldn't you really rather go first class SEE TO* LOCAL AUTH0RIZE0 BUICK DEALER.
