ST. PETERSBURG TIMES MONDAY. JULY 12, 1978 1 1 B obituaries . ROBERT K. SHOEMAKER Robert K. Shoemaker, ex-associate manager for 'Festival of States' By ROMAINE KOSHARSKY St. Paler sburp Times Buff Wrlur Robert K. "Bob" Shoemaker, 39, a reporter for the Tampa Tribune who died Saturday (July 10, 1976) of an apparent heart attack shortly after riding the "Python" at Busch Gardens in Tampa was a former associate manager for the . St. Petersburg "Festival of States." The 1,250-foot roller coaster-type ride with two 360-degree loops opened July 1 and was being introduced to members of the press Saturday. There are signs posted that the ride is not recommended for heart patients or expectant mothers. The television commercials for the newly opened ride show screaming riders being whirled upside down at nearly 60 miles per hour while a voice says, "They challenged the Python . . . and lived!" Mr. Shoemaker, a former semi-professional football player who was 6-foot-6 and weighed nearly 340 pounds, walked away from the ride and sat down on a bench. He asked his wife to get him a cold drink. As she turned to get it, he slumped over, witnesses said. He died about an hour later at a Tampa hospital. - A native of Philadelphia, Mr. Shoemaker came to St. Petersburg in 1968 with the Oakcrest High School Marching Ambassadors from Mays Landing, N. J. and enjoyed the city so much he decided to take a job four years later with the "Festival of States" office. He once told a St. Petersburg Times reporter, "I can hardly believe that a place as comparatively tranquil and peaceful as St. Petersburg is for real." . While with the festival in 1972, Mr. Shoemaker accompanied a summer tour of the National Flag Pageant from the St. Petersburg Festival of States in such cities as Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and several states including Kentucky, Georgia, Texas and South Carolina. Mr. Shoemaker attended Penn State University and the Temple University School of Law. A veteran newspaperman, Mr. Shoemaker started with the Harlan (Ky.) Daily News in 1963. His next position was with the Atlantic City Press. He was with the Philadephia Evening Bulletin before coming to St. Petersburg. A resident of 10735 Village Club Circle N, St. Petersburg, Mr. Shoemaker is survived by his wife Phyllis B.; a daughter, Miss Kathryn B. Shoemaker; two sons, David K. Shoemaker of St. Petersburg and Kurt Illinger of Boston, Mass.; and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin H. Shoemaker III, Philadelphia. A memorial service will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Anderson-McQueen Funeral Home. . BECKM AN, MATHILDA, 83, of 325 Sixth St. S, St. Petersburg, Sunday (July 11, 1976).

Despite tests, many don't know blood Despite a lifetime of "blood tests" at doctor' offices and hospital, an estimated half of Pinellas County adults have never had their blood typed and so essentially are lost as potential donors when an SOS goes out for a specific blood type. That is what we learned when we checked out a most provocative letter from Mrs. Charles E. Jackson of Largo. "Not long ago," she wrote, "a TV newscaster issued an appeal on behalf of a local hospital for a certain type of blood to replenish their bank. It occurred to me that I did not know my blood type even though I have been with the same family physician for 16 years, had surgery and been a patient in a hospital here several times. A call to each of these sources produced the startling fact that no one had a record of my blood type . . THE EDUCATED GUESS that half the adulu in the county are in the same boat came from Walter Davin, director of the Community Blood Bank Inc., which serves nine area hospitals. Determining blood type is "not routinely done" with other blood testa, said Davin, since they are done "for diagnostic purposes." This was corroborated by Dr. Larry Davis, medical director of Bayfront Medical Center's transfusion service. Hospitals do not routinely blood-type patients admitted for medical reasons except for those with chronic anemia, Davis said. Even most of those admitted for surgery are not blood-typed, he added. At Bayfront he estimated that blood typing is only done for 30 per cent and noted that Bayfront would be expected to do more than most hospitals. This is because blood typing and cross-matching with donor blood is only done for patients considered likely to need transfusion such as those getting heart, hip, radical cancer or neurosurgery procedures not all hospitals do, Davis said,' Surprisingly perhaps, young people are the least apt to , know their blood type. This, according to Davin, is because most Americans whose blood has been typed had it done when they were in the armed services or as part of the big civilian blood drives of World War II. THERE APPEARS to be a correlation between knowing one's blood type and being a blood donor, for Davin notes that most of the bank's donors are persons who were adults during World War II. "Since we've been going out and getting them" in the bloodmobile instituted nearly two years ago, however, Davin said, the number of young donors has increased. He is particularly pleased at the number of high school students who have become donors since the bloodmobile began visiting schools. Only students 17 or older are permitted to give blood and, Davin said, more than 1,300 have done so in the past two years. Saying that he "wouldn't want to tell the doctors and hospitals what to do," Davin said he could not recommend that blood typing automatically be included with diagnostic blood tests. But he did point out that the cost of materials required is only 50 cents. Adding in labor and overhead, Davin said the cost of typing an individual's blood would not exceed $1.50 to $2. Those who would like to know their blood type can have it tested free, he added, at blood bank headquarters, 626 Sixth Ave. S. It also will be done without charge in south Pinellas at Palms of Pasadena Hospital. North Pinellas residents can get free blood typing done at certain mobile unit locations visited by, the Hunter Blood Clinic of Morton Plant Hospital. Births ST.

Internist rebuts column on annual physicals A St. Petersburg internist in group practice called recently to take issue with the June 28 column quoting several prominent physicians who say routine annual physical examinations "cost the patient too much money, the doctor too much time and rarely result in an improvement in health." He makes several points: The physician critics of routine annual physicals were not telling those who don't feel well or who have known chronic ailments not to see a doctor, only those who "consider themselves healthy." The problem with this, says the internist, is that some elderly people say they are feeling okay but who have "com- HEARIRC AIDS LOW, LOW PRICES MOST MAKES AVAILABLE Factory Service Available For: DAHLBERG, DANA VOX, OTADrON, BECTONE, AUWOTONf , OUAUTONE, SIEMENS, KXTON.

These patients don't mention these complaints, he said, but remember when the doctor asks during the routine exam. f That in a city such as St. Petersburg with a large number of elderly people, "the likelihood of finding ailments just by the laying on of hands (in the physical examination) is high." He cites melanoma (a highly malignant form of cancer of the skin) that can be detected when the doctor inspects the patient's skin. "Several times a year I find cancer of the rectum," he notes also. . Men, he says, should be examined fur cancer of the prostate every two years and says sexually active women should have 1'ap smears every year. He believes, too, that "everybody over 36 should have an electrocardiogram on record." He also speaks of "satisfaction to the patient" in get-ting a clean bill of health from the physician. He thinks there's value in having the doctor "see who's smoking too much and urge him (or her) not to smoke" and in putting overweight people on diets. Pressed for a time schedule that he would recommend for persons who consider themselves well to see a doctor for a physical, the internist said men under 40 should do so every two or three years and men more than 40 every year. He declined to make a recommendation for women.
