Only the third now lives, Dr. Philip Blaiberg of Cape Town, South Africa, where the first such operation was performed by Dr. Christiaan Barnard last Kasperak came through the transplant operation satisfactorily and seemed for a few days to be heading for recovery. Then the complications arose from pre-existing disease of the liver and lung. Internal bleeding was disco- ] vered the Monday after the operation, but doctors checked it with blood transfusions. In the next two days Kasperak sat briefly on the edge of his bed and wrote his wife a note saying, "I love you." He couldn't speak because of a tube in his throat to help him breathe. Liver and kidney function abnormalities continued. And a gall bladder operation was performed Jan. 14. Improvement followed. Almost every hospital bulletin remarked that the new heart was functioning well. The turn for the worse came on Thursday, Jan. 18, Dr. Shumway believes, with sudden intestinal bleeding. Surgeons performed an emergency operation, the second in five days, to repair ulcers in the part of the small intestine leading from the stomach. When bleeding continued the next day, they performed still another emergency operation, repairing a stomach ulcer and removing Kasperak's spleen. They hoped that would prevent further bleeding. * * * Kasperak's condition was listed as extremely critical as bleeding continued, however. By Saturday he was bleeding internally throughout the body and receiving continuous transfusions of blood and plasma. The transplanted heart beat death on through it all—until came Sunday morning.

U.S. officers said the Marines killed 103 North Vietnamese, while the militiamen at Huong Hoa reported 45 of the enemy killed. Just before fighting tapered off, a Mavine A4 Skyhawk was shot down by North Vietnamese ground fire while dive-bombing enemy positions 2V4 miles northwest of Khe Sanh. The pilot bailed out and was rescued. It was the 225th U.S. plane downed in combat over the South. The North Vietnamese offensive began Saturday when enemy rockets crashed through the fog into the Khe Sanh base. Several Leatherneck huts were lev- :led and two Mavine helicopters were damaged on the ground. The Reds then launched mor- :ar and ground attacks on three strategic Marine hill positions, ovelooking Khe Sanh, Huong Hoa and three Marine Combined Action Platoons in the lown of Khe Sanh. None of the iutposts was overrun. The Lang Vei Special Forces camp also was mortared, but there were no casualties. Some enemy rockets cratered the runway of the airfield at Khe Sanh, but C130 cargo planes were able to land after the attacks. The. North Vietnamese also fired some 140mm rocket rounds into the Marine outpost of Camp Carroll but there was no report on casualties or damage there. The enemy attacks faded out Sunday and the attackers melted into the jungle. The Marines said the Red troops were from North Vietnam's 325C Division, which made a spring offensive in the Khe Sanh area last year and pulled back after 1,000 of its men were killed or wounded. There was no indication yel whether the weekend attacks were the start of a new offensive which Marine officers expect to get under way before Tet, the Vietnamese lunar new year festival, which begins next Monday. • The 325C was recently reinforced to Us full strength of 12,000 men and sprang the weekend attacks on Marine outposts around Klie Sanh, U.S. intelligence reports said.

HISSCO MAYOR (Continued from Page One) Crane, the regional construction grants program director of the Federal Water Pollution Control Administration, in an effort to work out details in connection with the $342,000 Sewer Project Grant the city is seeking. The mayor said he "met with some difficulties" co n c e r n - ing the project, but felt that this was "due to, a lack of communication between Federal, state, and city engineers."
