The Salina Journal Thursday, January 16,1986 Page 10 Nelson drug ties are denied LOS ANGELES (AP) - A spokesman for singer Rick Nelson vehemently denied a report Wednesday that a fire aboard Nelson's airplane just before it crashed may have been ignited by "free-basing" cocaine. "That's pure[ nonsense; Rick Nelson didn't do I free-base," Greg [ McDonald, Nelson's personal I manager, said of the report in The | Washington Post. "He was a sweet Nelson guy and he didn't have those kinds of problems." "The passengers were asleep. Rick Nelson and his girlfriend were asleep under a blanket when the smoke occurred," McDonald said in a telephone interview from his Palm Springs home. Federal officials said they have yet to determine the cause of the Douglas DC-3 crash on New Year's Eve that killed Nelson and six others. McDonald attributed his information to pilot Brad Rank, who was released Tuesday from St. Michael Hospital in Texarkana, Texas. McDonald refused to say where Rank could be reached. Free-basing requires mixing cocaine with flammable ether or another solvent in order to eliminate impurities. After the chemicals evaporate, the purified cocaine is usually smoked in a pipe held over a steady flame. The 42-year-old plane was carrying Nelson and his band from Guntersville, Ala., to a concert in Dallas when it crashed shortly after 5 p.m. Dec. 31 near De Kalb, Texas. Autopsies indicated Nelson, 45; his 27-year-old fiancee, Helen Blair; four band members; and a sound man died of smoke inhalation and burns, National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Jim Burnett said. The Dallas Morning News quoted NTSB chief investigator Rudy Kapustin as confirming that the board was investigating the possibility of a drug-related fire. The board currently has no evidence to support a drug-related fire, Furman said, adding that interviews with the captain and physical evidence did indicate a passenger- compartment fire broke out before the plane crashed. The Post quoted unidentified sources as saying preliminary reports indicate Nelson's body contained a measurable level of cocaine at the time of his death. But the sources said final laboratory reports are not available yet. Sometimes propellents from aerosol cans are used to aid the freebasing process, and the Post reported aerosol cans were found in the plane's wreckage, mostly in the baggage area. Hardening of arteries begins early BOSTON (AP) - The earliest stages of hardening of the arteries can be seen in teen-agers who have high cholesterol levels in their blood. Efforts to control this lethal condition should begin during childhood, researchers say. Hardening of the arteries — what doctors call atherosclerosis — is a major underlying cause of heart attacks, strokes and other diseases of the blood vessels. Cholesterol in the blood is a key culprit in this condition. A new study found that youngsters who have relatively high blood cholesterol levels also are most likely to have fatty streaks of cholesterol in their blood vessels. "We feel that fatty streaks are the earliest gross recognizable lesions of atherosclerosis," said Dr. William P. Newman of Louisiana State University Medical Center. Many experts believe that later in life these fatty streaks become plaques, buildups of cells, cholesterol and other material that eventually choke off the flow of blood. Newman's study was published in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine, along with an editorial recommending that all school children be checked for high cholesterol levels. Much of the blood's cholesterol is made naturally within the body, but many heart specialists believe that people can cut their cholesterol levels by reducing the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol that they eat. The latest research was based on the Bogalusa Heart Study, a survey of the cardiovascular health of school children in Bogalusa, La. live: PRICES GOOD THRU JAN. 22,1986 Building Materials STUD GRADE STUDS \\\ 2x4x92% ' Other grades stocked at low cash and carry prices!
